    Concept: Ligrell
    Ligrell inhabit the vast plains and lowlands of Valentoras in large herds. The local humanoids capture them and train them from birth to serve as forms of high speed transport. The leg structure of the Ligrell allows for a driving force, front and back, with every stride making the creature capable of reaching speeds of up to one hundred miles per hour, unlaiden. Ligrell come in many different colours, seemingly unrelated to breeding, some say there was a legendary Ligrell breeder who found a way of producing a breed of Ligrell which out paced any other to have lived before. The legend has it that the breed was of a specific colour, knowledge of which has long been lost. Golden... perhaps?

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""

    Concept: Sand Carrier

    After the Great Catastrophe of the year 2512, Earth became a giant desert.
    The quicksands became a real problem for the trucks used by the survivors, but the Sand Carrier can use his six legs to stabilize himself and move on all grounds.
    The creature is controlled by neurolinks : all orders from the pilot are sent to the neural system of the Sand Carrier.

    Sespoul- Cow 140

    Artist: SkooterNB

    Concept: Sespoul

    The Sespoul was discovered in the Everglades of post-nuclear Florida. It is believed to have been the product of inter-reptilian breeding after the great-enormification of all life on Earth. Whether it be more frog, snake, croc, or sarlacc, the Sespoul is a fantastic beast of burden and steed for warriors on the wastelands of New America.

    Concept: Sure-Foot
    Sure-foots are the mounts of choice for the bog races on Bitumin V. These beasts are especially suited for wayless terrain. While sure-foots almost never fall even at full speed their riders are more prone to injury or death.

    Concept: Hexipeda

    The great racing steeds of the deserts of South America in the Morzanian era.

    Racing of hexipedae is currently the most watched recreational sport in the real world apart from cricket. These sports allow people to unwind after the grind of cyberlife, and to forget about the complexities of everyday life. Lineage breeding has allowed the creation of mounts with smooth rocking gaits and exorbitant prices.

    Concept: Dune Dancer
    Called the Dune Dancers, these six legged creatures which looks like a weird mix of bird and camel, are one of the few remaining species of what's left of the planet Earth after its 4th World War. Heeding the use of biological warfare and Man's constant struggle for power, these creatures are probable products of the war that razed on for decades and are now left to wander the sand dunes that replaced the once blue planet. The remaining human populace have neither the technology or the resources to study these timid creatures but have ascertained that their capacity to survive the harsh environment without much sustenance are valuable traits that makes for a convenient mode of transportation.

    Concept: Greel Runner
    Found on the planet Mordiv, these six legged beasts are prized by thieves and outlaws throughout the galaxy for their breakneck speed and agility. It is said that a Greel runner can even outrun a speeder in the right conditions and in some cases jump up to 30 feet on their four powerful hind legs.
    A peaceful and docile species, the Runners have evolved this adaptation to escape the many predators who fly and run pretty fast on their home planet. Anyone lucky enough to have caught one is said to be a "Wealthy, prosperous and quick son of a bitch".
    At least that's what I heard......

    Concept: Hexapodiraptor gliesiensis
    When Gliese 581 and its planetary system were discovered in 2007, mankind soon excluded it from the list of possible habitats of alien lifeforms. But in 2226, after having managed to completely devastate earth, a first starship packed with humans landed on Gliese 581d. It's a small planet near the outer edge of the habitable zone and there was a glimpse of hope to make it a new home.
    And obviously mankind had been wrong: The rocky landscape with its plenty of damp caves was infested with a large variety of lifeforms, most of which were rather small and slimy but at least edible. These were also the prey of Hexapodiraptor gliesiensis, the tallest and highest developed spieces. The large poikilothermic biests hunted the caves at night and wandered the large deserts during the day, to regain power. The energy is stored in bulgy muscle-like lumps directly under the skin.
    It soon became clear (to both Hexapodiraptor and the settlers) that human meat was a great new source of energy. Even the animal company was acceptable and so most of the brought in straying dogs and cats ended their lives in the five stomachs of Hexapodiraptor gliesiensis, which during the day is able to to accelerate up to 160 mph.
    Still the settlers maintained their attitude to enslave nature and soon took hold of Hexapodiraptor, to use it's incredible muscular power to explore the planet. In order not be devoured instantly, they built strong cockpit-like cages to attach them on Hexapodiraptor's back. Since the cearures were never to be tamed or steered, a powerful engine had to be installed to control the mount. This way the settlers could eventually built up a small colony.
    They lived (more or less) happily until the X'cthera civilazition (who eventually had managed to completely destroy their homeplanet) landet on Gliese 581d, to enslave both the first settlers and Hexapodiraptor gliesiensis.
