Sting If you could make a race or a ring

If you were writing a book (some of you probably really are...) What NEW races would you include?

And if you were tolkien what color would you have made the ring ?

-looking for comical responses [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I would make this character that was like part Elf, Hobbit, Orc, Wizard, and Dwarf. Can you immagine? Think about this...

A thing that is 3'6, pointy ears, very long beard, carries an axe, and a bow, not to mention a huge staff, has a freaky messed up face with discusting teeth, major higene (sp?) problems, can see long distances in light and dark, lives anywhere possible (in Caves, woods, fields, etc.), and can shoot out magic at you so fast you couldn't even try to defend yourself.

Pretty scary huh? Dang, I wouldn't want to go up against a creature like that. But if I created one, I would call it...a...well, I don't know what I would call it but it would be really freaky that's all I know.

I'd probably make a race that was part elf and part cat. Or maybe hobbit/cat. Maybe all three............ [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Anywhoo, for the ring, I'd make it pink. Made specially for the use/ control of a girly cheerleader. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

How about little 1 foot fairies who spend their time pestering the hobbits?

As for the ring color, I would make it neon orange. How could you possibly lose a ring like that?

Id make wrelves and wrobbits, tall, short and all wearing black sheets!

The ring should be black, to match the "Im the dark lord" thing, but I'd make it red, to go with the whole "fires of mount doom" idea...either way

Neekerbreekers! Enlarge them so their chirping is magnified a hundred times over..and anyone who passes through their habitat is driven mad! Quite formidable, eh?

And as for the ring, well..I would make it so it adapts to its environment. If anyone loses it, it would be very hard to find. They might go mad trying to find it.

I'd make faeries. Sort of like step-cousins to Elves.

Immortal, wings, but posessing less inherrant power.

Fair, with voices like crystal, but small. Maybe only five foot at most. And posessing also an inner light.

More laughter but less pure joy. Less grief but less capacity to endure it. More prone to pranks and less to great wisdom.

I suppose it would be like an elf crossed with a hobbit when it all comes down to it.

We would make a nice race that has wings and is made to hunt down bagginses (who are nasty and evil and stole our precious) and other hobbits and takes their ring (which we would make so it cannot run from us) and brings it back to us! We would like that very much.

Yes, Monkey-Fish people are very odd, we thinks.

I have some ideas for creatures:

Kei'nai - I'm actually planning on using this race in a fantasy story I'm working on. Basically canine humanoids. Their faces are somewhat wolf-like, but the snouts are a little flatter than real wolves. Their ears point upwards and have very sharp hearing. The Kei-nai are sleek and agile, and they each have the ability to transform into a certain animal.

Oculan (pronounced Ohk-you-lahn) - An Oculan looks like a little eyeball, roughly the size of a tennis ball, with tiny legs sticking out of the bottom and big bat-like wings on the back. The Oculans could be used as spies, flying around and "eyeing" various things.

I would make people that could fly. Sort of half-eagle, half human. With wings and talons, but opposable thumbs.

And my ring would be of twisted silver (sort of Celtic in design) but with a dark blue set surrounded by carved waves.

And yes, I have been planning those for a while.

I already have the flying monkeys with freaky blue faces under my control - Fly, my pretties! Fly!

Yes, it is I! One of the sole people on the Barrowdowns who actually has seen the Chronocals and knows what they are. Anyhow, on to the subject:
Yes, wrelves and wrobbits are definitely an ingenius possibility (of course ingenius, I helped with the names, but then again, we all sort of contributed. Oops, I'm ranting again. Must stop)
I can't think of any new species, except for my Laks. They're mostly like humans, except for scaly, flipperish feet (don't ask, I have no idea as to how I came up with them, though I was probably under the influence of Tolkien).
And about the Ring: Dark bleu (to go with the sheets) or plaid, perhaps just to **** off all those color coordinators. Or maybe hematite. That would be cool. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I like the Oculans..

I would just remove the tiny little legs and add some fire.. Wait a minute, haven't this been done before? (A great lidless eye, surrounded by flames.. :)

Ah, but otherwise I would make some sort of fantasy creature.. I actually thought up a really great one during science class the other week (using some simple nature laws for model).. But I don't have the paper where I wrote down the facts about them here.. But they are some kind of 'staff-looking' creatures with magical abilities.. I'm still trying to develop a language for the world they'll be living in, so now they are just known as the 'staff-people' original, huh?

I would make the ring.. invisible! bwahaha! and I would make sure nobody else got attracted to it and that I didn't turn evil.

I'd make pixies.. very short, and immensely hard to spot. They would have wings, and would be the keepers of the night, posessing an inner glow and sprinkling pixie dust over all to make them go to sleep [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] and in the day, they would be nearly invisible, only occasionally could one hear their laughter..

As for the ring, I would make it absolutely transparent.. but within a certain proximity of flames, or ice, it would create an illusion of flame, or ice.

A race? Hmm...

The Ocsids, who would be six inches shorter than the average Man, humanoid in appearance save their unusually long legs and arms. They'd have strange hairdos, the norm being huge poofy balls of hair. They would also have an obsession with shiny things and bang strange beats on their drums all night. They would mainly enjoy dancing to these drums and are killer martial artists. And they'd love Gondor, just 'cause I said so.

As for the Ring? It'd be white gold. Because white gold will RULE THEM ALL!

My book features faeries, elves, dwarves, gnomes, goblins, humans, sprites, nymphs, dragons, and spirits. So far.

My own creation is a race of spirits called the Narath. And the only thing that is confirmed so far is the way they age.

The Narath age like a typical year. Not that they live for a year... they can live for hundreds of thousands of years. But they change as the seasons do.

In their childhood, the Narath are like the spring. They blossom and have a bright, sunny air to them. The spring theme applies to everything: their hair, complexion, clothing, and character.
So a young Narath would wear pale pinks, peaches, blues, greens, etc. sort of pastel colours. Their hair would be pale blonde, their eyes blue/green, and their mood happy and carefree.

As young adults, they move into the summer. Everything about them is golden. Sunny, copper, bronze, warm. Golden bronze clothing, darker blonde hair, almost into a light brown, green/hazel eyes. Slightly more serious but still very carefree.

As mature adults, the summer fades into Autumn. They wear browns and greens and rich reds and oranges, still perhaps some summery colours as well. Their eyes and hair are brown, and they are wiser and more serious.

As they move into old age, their hair turns silver, and their eyes grey. They wear silvers and pale wintry colours, like pale blue. They are now the wisest and most solemn of all the Narath.

This way of ageing reflects the fact that the Narath are very close to nature. When they die, they become part of the earth, and throughout life they live in the most solitary parts of the world, eg. the deepest forests.


I would make the One Ring silver. With pale blue writing.

I love your idea about the Narath Meela... How'd you come up with something like that anyway? That's very good!

If I could make the One Ring I would make it silver with emerald green writing.

Ty, Tinuviel! I don't know where the idea came from. I spose I was just thinking about spirits. I love the idea of them. The Narath were the first creatures to dwell on the Mortal Plane, and were created by Athalin the Earth Mother. It was an ongoing idea, trying to create a bunch of races. They just popped up! I think it stemmed from the idea that Athalin created the earth, actually. Her daughter Elenai, Daughter of the River, went to the Mortal Plane, and then I decided that the closest creatures to gods were spirits. After that it would gradually get more mortal, ie. Elves, then dwarves, then men.

Meela: Brilliant. Simply brilliant!

I'd make a new species called the Rihls. They are small about 7 in. high. Originally they have sea green skin that sometimes changes to a clear invisible hue to blend vaguely into its surroundings. Their hands and feet are long and slender. Also, the Rihls' eyes are large, almond shape and vary in beautiful colors such as deep red (Mountain Rihls), shimmering purple (Sky Rihls--mostly associated with the night sky), icy blue (Sea Rihls), and ivy green (Earth or Tree Rihls)--depending on which group they belong to.

They have magic powers such as making light in dark places, helping things grow, healing wounds or illnessesthat seem beyond aid, making people tell the truth, jumping very far distances (up to a hundred feet), running very fast (so that you cannot even see them), and the ability to transform into a special kind of flower that is identified solely with the Rihlian race. The flower has a thin, almost transparent stem with thin, shiny leaves that glitter. The petals are white and sparkly as well. The flowers are also how the Rihls are born. Their mother bears a seed and plants it in the ground, praying to the Queen Rihl--immortal, fairest, and wisest of Rihls--to give it life. Then the Queen Rihl will bless it and the seed will grow into a flower that will bloom on the first full moon becoming a Rihl. Throughout their life-span, the Rihl will be able to transform into this flower in order to hide from predators or humans (and elves or dwarves) with evil intentions for their power.

---They are very much like fairies except very wise---

Of course they love to cause mischief!!

PS I'd make the ring ... green ... my favorite color. Although I like Rynoah's idea of making it white-gold. V v v pretty. Yes but, I'd make it green with gold writing. Kind of tacky me thinks actually.

My race would be vampire/bat/hobbit/elf

Scarry. A short little creature that wars all black and has fands. Point ears and has small little bat wings. I'm scared [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img].

As for a ring I'd make it multi-cloroed. No kust-kidding. I would probely go with silver, black, or red. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I simply adore the Rihls! They are beautiful! If I could come up with another race, I would love to have them as my idea!
