Badgers? We don' need no stinkin' badgers!!
After his success co-authoring a murder mystery w/James Patterson, Marvel is now talking to Bill Clinton about doing some comics writing: a revival of Steve Gerber's swamp monster hero. They expect Bill Clinton's 'Man-Thing' will be very popular.

Nice! I always found the "Dire _____" section interesting, if only because they made things look extra pointy and bony compared to just making the animals bigger. I've usually just made things enhanced in size, but I can see why they'd want something more unique.

Well, if you look at real life examples of gigantism, some do have other health issues. Same with dwarfism. So Giant versions of the same animal wouldn't necessarily just look like bigger versions.

Dire Bear PL 12/121PP

Post by kirinke » Sun Jun 03, 2018 1:35 pm

Dire bears are no more aggressive than their smaller cousins. Which means, you should probably stay away from them. One swipe from their massive paws can turn a normal person into chunky spaghetti.

Dire Boar PL 10/100PP

Post by kirinke » Sun Jun 03, 2018 3:28 pm

Image
Dire boars are just as vicious and as aggressive as their smaller cousins. Due to their size, they're even more detrimental to the environment. On the bright side, if you can kill them, they're rather tasty beasts and their meat is especially good marinated with apple cider.

Lol. Gotta love princess bride references. :)

I'm also finding that the Dire beasts are much easier to work through than some of the other entries. They are pretty straight forward for the most part. Dragons are going to be harder.

Thank Google and Deviant Art. Between the two of them I can find just about anything. :twisted:
I'm also trying to go outside my comfort zone and these builds are helping with that.
