I am thinking of a creature which "produces" fireworks, as we know it from the turn of the year or open air events...i am not sure if "spitter" would be the right wording, so if you know a better description tell me
Of course the purpose of the creatures firework producing is totally up to your own concept...whether for defending, attacking or whatever...

alright what about emitter? and do the fireworks have to go out of the body of this so called "firework spitter?" :p also how was your vacation...
December 29th, 2005 #4
yes, emitter sounds good...i thought of it also, but somehow it isn't a name you would give a creature, it sounds more technical in my eyes...
and well, i think the best way is to make it going out of the critter...i can't think of another way...
My vacation was something between boring and not so bad thank you for asking.

Hey I'm a lurker on the boards and rarely have anything to say, and have yet to get the guts to post a piece... but I ran "spit" through a thesaurus and here are the results:
banish, bounce, bump, cast out, chuck, debar, disbar, discharge, disgorge, dislodge, dismiss, displace, dispossess, ditch, drive off, dump, eliminate, emit, eradicate, eruct, erupt, evacuate, evict, exclude, expel, expulse, extrude, fire, force out, heave out, irrupt, kick out, kiss goodbye, oust, reject, rout, sack, sending packing, spew, spit out, spout, squeeze out, throw out, throw overboard, turn out, unloose, vomit.
I'm a a fan of Fire Spewer or Eruptor... Those sound the most "organic"
Just my opinion, maybe i'll doodle something up.

Firework 'Spitter' makes it sound like it has to come from the mouth. Saying 'emitter' makes it sound more general, but like you said sounds quite technical. The last word could just be left to the artist.
Firework Spewer is quite good. firework excreter, firework discharger, firework unloader..

ok i changed it to "Firework Spewer"...
Just do a creature which somehow produces firework...dammit!

Is it wrong that this is the first thing I thought of when I read the original description (firework spitter)?
I in no way condone putting firecrackers in the mouth of a bullfrog, I however don't speak for a few friends of mine.

Company's up tomorrow, I'm probably not going to have time to work on this any more before the deadline, so this'll have to be my final for now.
Fire Bird- Widely considered one of nature's biggest mistakes, this small, normally flightless bird had only one measure of defense against predators. When startled, the terrified bird would become so hot that it would rocket straight up into the air, eventually exploding into a small, yet colorful, puff of smoke. While this technique was excellent at deterring predators, it was obviously a bit detrimental to the bird's health; unsurprisingly this species no longer exists.
It's when you can't hear the bats, that's when the bats are coming.

At first I thought that bird was some kind of weird fish with wing ears...
Nice creature, it makes me happy inside.
