DOD Races: Myrmidon
Common Name: Myrmidon (Beast rider, Myrmie, Traitor, Kaiju lover, Horned Horde)
Pronounced: (Mrr-meh-don)
Classification: Homo sapiens sapiens / Infernuceratops polyonax (Diaborus)
SGOC Rank: Megafauna
Length: 9 feet
Height: 7 feet
Weight: 400 lbs.
Diet: Omnivore
Social Structure: Solitary, Troop (5-60+ members)
Home Planet: Earth
Distribution: Worldwide
Population Size: Unknown
IUCN Status: N/A
Description:
Myrmidons were the creations of Diaborus, a powerful psionic kaiju who sought to create a paradise for his kind by making The Cycle permanent. Using dozens of atom bogs he created millions of these creatures to be his army, and in the world war that followed he would have won if not for the combined efforts of humanity, other kaiju, a

Reign of Fire: The Bull
Common Name: The Bull
Scientific Name: Draco infernalis
Length: 200 feet
Wingspan: 320 feet
Adaptations: Enormous size, large horns, armored head and back, huge wings, grasping hindlegs, hypertrophied fire glands
Fire Type: Napalm breath, fireball
Diet: Carnivorous
Maturation: Adult, breeding male
Caste Function: Reproduction, nest defense
The bull dragon is the largest and most dangerous dragon caste yet discovered, and is easily the alpha of the entire species. It was the discovery of the first bull in London that signaled the beginning of the end, as its escape led to the species’ eventual return and, ultimately, the collapse of modern civilization.
Bull dragons resemble dive-bombers the most closely, but are far larger and more robust, and with a wingspan that can quite literally blot out the sun. Bulls have thick armor and massive horns that make their braincase almost impossible to damage; their fire glan

DOD Bestiary: Friar, Moloch
Common Name: Friar, Moloch
Pronounced: (Friar), (Moloch)
Classification: Tylosteus tucki (Tuck’s Knob-bone), Gravitholus moloch (Heavy-dome Moloch)
SGOC Rank: Megafauna
Length: 22 feet (friar), 10 feet (moloch)
Height: 5 feet at the hips (friar), 4 feet at the hips (moloch)
Weight: 1180 lbs. (friar), 260 lbs. (moloch)

Reign of Fire: Egg Mother
Common Name: Egg Mother
Scientific Name: Draco infernalis
Length: 90 feet
Wingspan: 120 feet
Adaptations: Elaborate horns, hypertrophied fire glands, flightlessness
Fire Type: Napalm breath
Diet: Carnivorous
Maturation: Adult, breeding female
Caste Function: Reproduction
The gray, tattered-winged egg mother is the reproductive engine of the dragon species. Marked by elaborate, almost crown-like horns and a mottled hide, they are rarely seen except in the deepest of raids into dragon territory, where they roost in large numbers and foster the next generation of these deadly flying carnivores.
Egg mothers resemble their younger dive-bomber kin, but are larger and more heavily armored due to age, and develop an elaborate arrangement of horns atop their heads. Their wings are shriveled and atrophied from lack of use, and their fire glands have swelled to the size of a black snorter’s, enabling these monstrous mothe

DOD Bestiary: Flish
Common Name: Flish (Flying fish)
Pronounced: (Flish)

SGOC Rank: Mesofauna / Fauna / Megafauna
Length: up to 12 feet
Height: up to 2 feet (ground level)
Wingspan: up to 23 feet
Weight: up to 180 lbs.
Diet: Carnivore / Omnivore
Social Structure: Solitary, Flock (5-400+ members)
Home Planet: Earth
Distribution: Oceans and coasts worldwide
IUCN Status: Least Concern
Description:
“Flish” is the common name for a number of highly specialized, fish-like flying animals that inhabit the oceans and surrounding skies of post-Cycle Earth.
All flishes share a few common characteristics. They have well-developed wings for forelimbs in adulthood, allowing the warm-blooded creatures to glide and fly, but not nearly as adeptly a

Reign of Fire: Napalm-breather
Common Name: Napalm-breather
Scientific Name: Draco infernalis
Length: 110 feet
Wingspan: 125 feet
Adaptations: Forward-facing horns, hypertrophied fire glands
Fire Type: Napalm breath
Diet: Carnivorous
Maturation: Adult, non-breeding male
Caste Function: Heavy aerial attack / defense
The enormous, demonic-looking napalm-breather is among the most frightening of the dragon castes. These beasts are summoned only in times of dire need, for they are the most cantankerous and unpredictable of all dragon breeds – human or dragon, it burns to them all the same.
Napalm-breathers are adult male dragons, their reproductive urges kept in check chemically with pheromones produced by bull dragons. They are absolutely huge, dwarfed only by the gargantuan bulls, and have both backswept cranial horns and a huge pair of horns that curve out of their cheekbones, giving them a decidedly devilish appearance. They are slow-moving

DOD Bestiary: Fiship
Common Name: Fiship (Ship fish, Mountain fish)
Pronounced: (rhymes with “bishop”)
Classification: Cetichthys osteocephalus (Bone-headed Whale-fish)
SGOC Rank: Megafauna
Length: 56 feet
Height: 15 feet (ground level, discounting dorsal fin)
Weight: 25 tons
Diet: Omnivore
Social Structure: Solitary
Home Planet: Earth
Distribution: Atlantic Ocean
IUCN Status: Near Threatened
Description:
The fiship is a giant bony fish that behaves much like a baleen whale. Members of the teleost group, fiships are more specifically pachycormids, a family of bony fishes that thrived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Despite suffering huge setbacks during the K-T Event this family has clung on in the subterranean Niobrara Sea, where the pachycormid line has sur

Reign of Fire: Dive-bomber
Common Name: Dive-bomber
Scientific Name: Draco infernalis
Length: 65 feet
Wingspan: 90 feet
Adaptations: Horned head, large wings, grasping hindlegs
Fire Type: Napalm breath, fireball
Diet: Carnivorous
Maturation: Adult, non-breeding female
Caste Function: Hunting, aerial attack / defense
The dive-bomber is the “standard” dragon caste commonly encountered by humans, and is potentially the most numerous. Dive-bombers typify and exemplify the features that made dragons so successful – they are quick, powerful, and heavily-armed carnivores, a living weapon guided by a cunning, predatory intellect. This caste was named for its habit of strafing targets with napalm and for snatching them in its talons, then dropping them from extreme heights.
Dive-bombers are all female, and have all the characteristic physical features of dragonkind. They, like black snorters, are kept sexually immature by ch

DOD Bestiary: Feller-buncher
Common Name: Feller-buncher
Pronounced: (Feller-buncher)
Classification: Sylvatitan baxteri (Baxter’s Forest-titan)
SGOC Rank: Megafauna
Length: 78 feet
Height: 26 feet at the hips
Weight: 44 tons
Diet: Herbivore
Social Structure: Solitary, Herd (15-20 members)
Home Planet: Earth
Distribution: North America
IUCN Status: Vulnerable
Description:
The feller-buncher is a giant sauropod native to the conifer forests of post-Cycle North America. A browsing titanosaur, this armored beast is likely the descendant of the late Cretaceous giant Alamosaurus, although it more closely resembles lithe and narrow-bodied beasts like Diplodocus instead of its chunkier titanosaur brethren.
Feller-bunchers were so named for their habit of felling trees as both a practical

Reign of Fire: Black Snorter
Common Name: Black Snorter
Scientific Name: Draco infernalis
Length: 55 feet
Wingspan: 50 feet
Adaptations: Thick horns, armored head and back, hypertrophied fire glands, flightlessness
Fire Type: Napalm breath
Diet: Carnivorous
Maturation: Adolescent male
Caste Function: Ground attack / defense
The black snorter is a fearsome dragon that is typically found in hills, ruins, and along coastlines. Whereas female jakyls metamorphose into flight-capable dragons, graceful and deadly, the males take a terrifying detour, transforming into monstrous creatures that lumber along the ground, spewing gouts of napalm not from their mouths, but from their nostrils.
Black snorters are adolescent male dragons, their maturation stunted chemically by the presence of both bulls and napalm-breathers. They are as big as adult females but are much more muscular, and their wings are too small to get them airborne; instead they walk on all

DOD Contest Entry: Kruncher
Name: Kruncher
Aliases: Krusher, Pulverizer, Prehistoric Pugilist
Classification: Magnoneekrognathus africanus (Great destructive jaws of Africa)
Faction: Rogue
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Dimensions:
Height: 300 feet tall at the shoulder
Length: 720 feet long
Weight: 1,450 tons
Abilities:
Burly Brawler: Even by kaiju standards, Kruncher is utterly massive, and he knows how to use his size to his advantage. The great beast is nearly impossible to knock over or pick up, and he often devastates enemies with bone-crushing body slams and charges, scattering his opponents like bowling pins.
Thick Hide, Thicker Head: Kruncher's body is covered in incredibly thick armored hide, measuring several meters thick in some places, making it extremely difficult to really hurt the big beast. Furthermore, the kaiju's skull is incredibly reinforced,

The Titanomachy has forever changed our planet. Perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced has been averted, but not without a heavy cost.

Kaiju that were once under human control now roam free, taking revenge against their former captors at every opportunity. The events of the Titanomachy have also awakened kaiju never before seen from their slumber beneath the planet’s crust, replacing those lost during the great conflict. Word about us spreads quickly among the kaiju…and not much of it is good. Worse yet, there are signs that the creatures we fought in the Titanomachy are still out there, and they have not given up….

The Days of Dikorus may be over, but for now…post-Cycle Earth lives.


=================================================================


Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to After The Impact!

If you haven’t yet read my “Titanomachy” short story, what follows below are *SPOILERS*. If you want to catch up now, go here and start reading: gilarah93.deviantart.com/galle… .

But for the rest of you, welcome again!

After The Impact (ATI for short) is the first planned expansion for the Days Of Dikorus kaijuverse. It follows post-Cycle Earth after the Titanomachy – a world war brought about by the kaiju Diaborus and his followers – comes to a close, ending with a narrow victory in humanity’s favor. But we couldn’t do it alone; the Tyloban Empire helped out but only to save themselves, for if humanity fell their tenuous claim to the planet might also be in jeopardy. Unfortunately things turned messy and, one thing leading to another, one of the Empire’s massive habitation ships was shot down, its remains littering the eastern hemisphere. The wreckage is a treasure trove of Tyloban tech and knowledge that, in the right (or wrong) hands, could drastically change the course of human history. Interested parties from all over the world are now rushing to find it….


Here are some new features we can expect for After The Impact:

— Factions as shown in kaiju bios will be modified a bit from what we’re used to. Nothing major, just a small overhaul. Most of you probably won’t even notice. =P

— Shorter and more concise kaiju bios. For those of you who like an expository essay, sorry. I’m really trying to cut down on the clutter and make my writing concise and easier to read. This applies to descriptions of kaiju abilities, characters, and backstories. Also, all new deviations for ATI (except the bestiary) will have “ATI:” in the title instead of “DOD:”.

— Life on post-Cycle Earth goes on. The setting will continue to develop as time progresses, with short stories and artwork making up the bulk of this new content. Some standing lore has also been updated; Sunset Blade, for instance, now has to rebuild its menagerie after losing most of it during the Titanomachy. The bestiary will continue to be posted as well.

— The return of classic kaiju! Many of DOD’s old monsters are gone while others still remain; those that survived the Titanomachy are back with designs both new and old, along with updated bios and character descriptions. For those who like spoilers, here’s a few familiar faces who are making a comeback: Iranitith, Gilarah, and Razorr.

— All-new kaiju! A whole new set of monsters are coming to post-Cycle Earth, now that I finally have the hang of designing them. I won’t divulge anything on them further, but expect great things. ;)


I’ll gladly answer any questions you may have about ATI or Days Of Dikorus in general. Thank you for your support! :)

I used to, then I realized most of them descend into filibustering territory mighty quick. The Loch was good, though.

If you're looking for a Lake Vostok monster romp that's actually good, go read Greig Beck's "Beneath the Dark Ice".
