    Artist: lkjhgfdsa

    Concept: IO Phoenix arachnid
    Description at bottom of picture
    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.

    Concept: Acerbus Ignis

    This reptile lives deep in the caves of mountains where it is wet. They live and work as ants do, they have one queen per one "family" and she's completely attached to the surrounding ceiling and walls. The light serves as an important guide to the workers as they make their way home or go fetch her and the hatchlings food.

    Concept: Ignii Centaur

    These creatures are believed to have fallen from the sky following the Great Solar Eclipse of the Inner World. Not many people have come across one and those who have were never heard of ever again. These creatures live in unexplored caves of mountain ridge of Tsukhaar. It is said that the creatures cannot exist without darkness or shadow and therefore are put into the evil category usually compared to vampires or other species despite of their believed alien heritage. The mountain people often mentioned creatures that fit Ignii description as masters of hypnotism. They speculated that many who never returned were memorized by the unusual magenta flames covering the centaur's body which made the victims not flee but do quite opposite of that...

    Artist: Bralt Hannicart

    Concept: Lampyris Aeropisces
    The unusual anatomy of the Lampyris Aeropisces is in fact the result of clever evolution. Living in the dense atmosphere of the extrasolar gas giant Niavoiy XII, it relies heavily on heated gas to move around.

    The Lampyris Aeropisces does so by inhaling methane and oxygen and collecting it in an inflatable balloon-like organ in it's throat. In a controlled manner and through canals and valves inside this organ it can spark the gas mixture and cause it to combust. Pressure builds up quickly and a spongy sack of bubbles underneath it's skull gets filled with heated gasses causing it to gain altitude (or remain levelled).

    To prevent the creature from exploding, it can release most of the excess fire and gas through a duct protrusion which it can aim in various directions, giving it full control of movement. A gland inside this exhaust tube can produce various substances that cause a thick black, stinking smoke when exposed to fire. The Lampyris Aeropisces uses this to it's advantage to evade several predators that rely heavily on sight and smell.

    Artist: Ghoulio

    Concept: Lyllikörd

    This creature is rarely ever been seen, and if it was, almost nobody lives to tell the story. Living submerged into the earth it feeds on
    the natural minerals in the dirt, like plants. The Lyllikörd also has the ability to turn lightning, that strikes the ground, into fire wich it
    can transport to every wanted part of his body. It will only come out of his underground shelter after it´s disturbed by anyone who
    stays around its territory long enough to really annoy it. If so, the creature will drill his way out, by peristaltic movements of his
    muscules in its lower bodyparts and tail, and hunt you down to give you the BBQ treatment and let you burrrrrnnn...

    Artist: Scorge

    Concept: Tormetus
    Doomed to an existence of pain and torment, the Tormetus wanders the vast wastes spreading a dark shadow in its wake spewed from the fire inside its twisted body. Over the course of its life, this huge beast believed to be the father of the mythical Chimera will eventually be consumed by its own devouring embers, but not before it covers the land in its shadow of death and constant destruction.

    Artist: Marsch

    Concept: Letigo

    These fast and nimble creatures were created when the dinossaurs died with the meteor. In the impact's intense heat and radiation some dinossaurs, instead of being vaporised transformed themselves in pseudo-energy beings.

    But no one knows this, for when people survive their atacks, all they can tell is that it was Shadows and Flame!!!!!!!

    Artist: Jushra

    Concept: Xaphan Raptor
    The Xaphan Raptor is the fusion of shadow and flame that lives in the deep psyche of the human soul. It lives in the false realities we create for ourselves and tortures its victims with its call of unrealized dreams (the flames). The shadows of despair that surround them remind us of our unrealized potential. Usually encountered in flocks, a person's only hope is to stay in the light of true knowledge and reason.

    Artist: Gumish

    Concept: Umbramonstrum

    I wish I have never set out on this by the God cursed expedition. But to conquer the North pole was the really challange. Chance to become a hero. But all my dreams failed. Siberia became our cold grave. Everything began in the evening when all dogs started to be nervous and scarred. Suddenly everything got dark. We weren't able to defend ourselves. In that blackness I saw only gushes of flames and sparks of its eyes. Everything which found itself in its jaw got burn. Only I had that luck/shame that I was hit by his flaming tail to my chest. Now I'm crouching here on the plains of Siberia and slowly waiting for a death....

    Artist: Bestow

    Concept: Masklooga
    The Masklooga are a race of sentient masks, forever enveloped in flame, this flame is an eternal light and life source. The Masklooga are able to sculpt shadows by their powerful mental will, then materializing the shape they imagined. Thusly these trickster/tyrants can appear in any form, and arm themselves with any weapon. The only possible way to defeat one would be to exhaust their light source, their flame.

    tired of balrogs and ogres and shit, this is a little different, and has a little more potential,

    inspiration, those kickass tiki masks from crash bandicoot that talked

    Artist: Ccinabox

    Concept: Lanternus Mortika

    The Lanternus Mortika or "Death Beacons" are a race of demons which honeycomb brimstone and rock caverns which comprises the hellish planes. Occasionally they have been known to stumble upon natural portals to other worlds with their incessant tunneling. Due to this rare occurrence, one documented sighting describes the creature as composed of Shadow and Flame.
    Its name is derived from the blazing inferno at its core, which appears as a dancing lantern when viewed at a distance.

    Artist: Cloister

    Concept: Sharlohr Agnith

    From the shadows came shadow. From the fire came flame.
    The demon was not of tormented flesh or bone, but strode out of
    the Abyss as living shade. When it exhaled great fires spread across
    the sky, and the shadows turned to black stone and coal.
    As the heat increased the shape solidified, until the fire and shade
    were like a furious mountain. The beast roared in diabolical anguish;
    and at once the whole valley was purged in pure hell.
    A Sharlor Agnith was reborn. The kingdom gone.
