Listener/Forums Mega-Beast Suggestions
While community feedback has always played a part in the crafting of Mega-Beast competitors, this year we were looking to draw ink directly from the well. A season 4 round we will feature 3 beasts taken directly from your suggestions, look, powers n' all. So yeah peoples, let's hear what you got, scan the provisions set out here and post below.
A few provisions:
Please base your beasts on an actual animal that exists in nature. Or creatures with a common enough point of reference they might as well exist, e.g. sasquatches, unicorns, chupacrabras, dodo birds, etc.
While 'humanoids' are ok, ideas that emphasis a bestial, savage quality are more in with MBDM standards.
Ridiculous creatures welcome. Sure, a ferret couldn't defeat a gorilla straight-up, but a ferret of living plasma would have a puncher's chance.
Freshness of ideas is highly desired. So retreads of animals used in years past (crocodiles, lions, elephants, squid, etc) are discouraged. The same goes for specific sets of powers (teleporting, liquid nitrogen blood, mastery of shadows, regenerating horns, etc). I know we at the Drabblecast have covered a lot of ground with beasts of the past, so some overlap is acceptable, but if you're gonna' try another rhino (for example), it better have a unique spin to it.
In general keep power level on par with mega-beasts that have existed in the past. We want parody across seasons, for crossovers, and to keep a rich history alive so to draw comparisons, like pro baseball. So no beasts that resemble the 'wish you in to the cornfield' kid from the Twilight Zone who just blink their opponents out of existence.
Your renderings are welcome (I'd love to see em'), but all beasts will pass through the Bo Kaier prism before going to vote in the actual round.
Oh and no pornographic, racially insensitive, or whatever the crap else bad stuff you get warned against in these types of scenarios that common sense generally covers.

Final selections will be made by Norm, the editors, and myself. Be warned before you submit - If we select your idea it may well appear in to some other future form of publishing. So yeh, if this is your baby, keep it pressed to your bosom. You will be given credit, always, but in general beasts drafted should be considered forfeit - surrendered to that nebulous world of creative commonality.
