Murren is a researcher. I will need to decide what he is wearing on his very first trip via thread. It would most likely be something he would wear at home while tinkering in the garage.
Post number 300 sure snuck up on me! I’ve been meaning to do something special… This’ll have to do. I had a good friend (Bryce Bezooyen) whip up some concepts for me six or so years ago. I’ve always intended trichoplax to be able to get stronger and stronger. Here are two versions of Leem in trichoplax form.
A bit more work on my numbers today. I am not set on all the shapes yet, but there was thought that went into several of them. I felt I needed to keep 1 as a single vertical dash. It would make the most sense for a primitive being to count using single dashes or dots… but dashes are easier to make on a somewhat hard surface via scratching. 0 is an x because if you wanted to cross out a single 1 you would put a second dash through it. 2 is a crescent because the onderzites original home planet had 2 moons… maybe. 4 represents a square that has 4 sides. 6 represents 2 fingers being raised: each finger counts as 3. Most of the others I tried several shapes to find ones that were easy and quick to draw.
I only need 4 group counters. I don’t need one for numbers under 12. I don’t need one for 60 because then it goes double digits… like 10. The marks match 1-4, sorta.
I might make a flash-based number converter for this…
More concepts for the utility character. I think my favorite is the guy on the top left.
