If you don't vote for Lucifoul, the terrorists have already won.

Just throwing that out there.

By the way, folks -- an Allosaurus moves very differently than a Utahraptor due to the increased size. I'd wager Evisceraptor, he of the dual liabilities, has a third: over or under-calculation due to the unexpected variable of increased mass and momentum.

LUCIFOUL I have Spore. It's un-frickin' believable. Plucky has down a heck of a job here; the critters look awesome, dude. I'm frankly amazed some of you are seeing things the way you are. This is arguably the most important thing that will happen this year, and I think you guys need to put more th...

A raptor is a pack hunter. Where's his pack?
A raptor could take out a Trex.
I'd give a pack of five Utahraptors a 50/50 chance.

I'm not yet ready to make my big all-in yet on a single beastie, as I'm sure several of you aren't. When I do, I'll make my case. But I can tell you some of my early considerations. First -- damn nice job on the site. The art is friggin' over the top and I love the bios. Musical affiliation? Hah! I ...

I'm stoked that you guys went with my round name idea :)

Now comes the nail biting....cheese and rice, that is a buttload to digest to come up with a decision. I don't see any quick or easy decision here.

I don't know if you guys were looking for a name for round 4, but "Extinction Level Event" might be cool.

Evisceraptor

Blight Owl

I also had a name occur to me for the squid. The scientific name for the Giant Squid is Architeuthis. So hows' this? Anarchiteuthis :)

So each critter is a hodge-podge with traits from the critters it defeated in a given round, right?

I have a confession -- I hate Pandemic. And what's up with the last-second rush against Armourdillo? I call it death throes, personally.

I just want to add a point about Scraptor's pneumatics -- good for him, but you can attach a 12,000-pd lift to a standard carbon-based hip bone, crank that puppy up, and rip that lift right off the hip. Cybernetics are great, but with a cyborg, he can't really "max out" without knocking himself out ...

Speaking as one of the dorks that was at Dragon*Con, I am very pleased to see John McC-- er, Armourdillo slowly steamroll the competition. It's funny that it's gone almost like the actual predictions almost everyone's made about this death match -- i.e., sharkitraz and pandemic blaze-out quick, then...

Sharkitaz is in the fight, therefore Pandemic is hosed. Doesn't matter if he's carrying enough pathogens to attract the attention of both Dennis Hoffman and Cuba Gooding, Jr. He's still toast.

So Sharkitraz, who's uncontrollably excited by blood, is drawn to Paendemic, who has the black plague, necrotic flesh, the flesh-eating virus, and other nasty "bleeding bugs" and bites a chunk (or multiple chunks) off said walking disease hulk, killing each other in the process through massive blood...

That's what I'm dealing with as well. Pandemic's like a time bomb in this match. He's a bit annoying, because he's posthumously going to 86 anyone that ends up winning. If you guys are looking for ways to even things out, I'd say: 1) Give Scraptor a real laser. That will give him a hit-and-run range...

This is horribly late, but I just want to say I absolutely loved this story. This was excellent, from the narration, to premise, to resolution. My only beef was the stranger the man wound up with on the run. I didn't think their chance meeting was explained well enough.

But overall, excellent!

About this match...

I've been following the matches so far with much interest, so much so that you guys are distracting me from my writing. But I'm able to press on, as I have huge quantities of sweet, sweet iron in my blood. I'm familiar with the capabilities of dinosaurs and sharks -- having "self-educated" myself ab...
