Inhabited by gigantic spider-like carnivores, the caves are overrated. Unless you’re hiding from a hunter that looks like an apex predator out of a movie franchise. Then the caves are slightly more appealing. If Esra can get rid of the current, uh, inhabitants, she’ll be fine. Maybe better than fine.
The predators on Ikthe aren’t the only violent things there. In planet years, Ikthe is young with a limited history of volcanic activity. Esra has yet to learn how many tectonic plates are on Ikthe, but once she has time to study the seismic activity, she’s in for a grand surprise.
They’re everywhere and yet impossible to capture on film. Here are suggestions of what the dangerous predators on Ikthe might look like. The scabika, the deadly rokhura, the creatures that make up the lion’s share of the protein that the Theraxl race needs to thrive, are just a couple of prehistoric-like reptiles reminiscent of Earth’s ancient dinosaurs. The predators on Predator Planet are out to kill or be killed. Darwin would have loved a jaunt on this strange planet…if he had lived to study it. Humans have a twenty to thirty percent chance survival rate here. Esra Weaver probably won’t make it a week.
Predator Planet has all of the same building blocks found throughout the universe. Carbon-based life forms and familiar elements such as water, nitrogen or methane. That doesn’t mean the life forms evolved as they did on earth. Predator Planet seems familiar to Esra Weaver with its greenery, rich aromas and the sounds reminiscent of the woods back home on earth. But what exactly are these bugs flying around? What made that noise in the trees? And what is rising out of the boiling mud pit? If it wasn’t for her high-tech suit, she would already be dead from any number of Predator Planet bugs. Stay sharp when you visit Predator Planet.
From her crash landing to present day, Esra Weaver must fight for her survival. There are no existing photographs of the predators she faces on an almost hourly basis. Use your imagination and these renderings from Storyblock to craft what her daily commute must look like. Good luck, Esra. We don’t have a lot of hope for you, but we’re cheering you on, anyway.
