    ConceptartCohesion #001: 8th Day >>> COW - Giant Suicide Digger


    ConceptartCohesion #001: 8th Day

    Storyline:


    The year 2446 CE

    Mankind and its technology have advanced at an exponential rate, however trivial political, religious and social demands have caused the splintering of former superpowers into smaller nation states, pitting themselves against each in a number of minor conflicts.

    Since 2395 a minimum of 27 conflicts, hostile incursions and border disputes have been raging in various confined areas across the planets surface, sparking a new global economy.
    Covenants of major corporations have banded together in various factions and are now the true international players, feeding the ever increasing demand of new weapons technology.
    The change in style of warfare has rendered weapons of mass destruction virtually useless increasing an appetite for more unconventional weapon systems, specifically the VidaNova Corporations newest developments in the field of creating new species of animals bred for specific purposes.

    The idea behind this new move is too harness the animals natural intelligence, sensory abilities, and ability to traverse difficult terrain. They are currently working on models for civilian implementation, ranging from beasts of burden for remote areas to leisure models as pets. However there have been worrying reports of certain products escaping from captivity, and having unexpected effects on the flora and fauna they interact with, conspiracy theorists place blame on a huge range of subjects, ranging from the Cytarabinoside used in manipulating metabolic pathways in the animals, to mother earth resting control back from humanity to satan himself.
    Some minor political and religious groups are already rallying, trying to bring this series of unnerving events to the public eye, wild rumors and conspiracy theories are already calling this the 8th day of creation.

    Topic:
    Giant Suicide Digger


    Description:
    Giant Suicide Digger - Difficult terrain made it very hard or even impossible to reach military targets which are hidden in dense jungles or high mountains. As an alternate to the obvious units attacking from the air scientists created a new species which is a result of cross breeding different species with ability to dig their way through the ground. By manipulating special genes they created a huge creature which is optimized on seeking elektro magnetic signals...

    The defensive structures of the strategical buildings are producing electro magnetic signals in operational mode, which is an indication of the enemy buildings position. The Suicide Diggers are genetically programmed to search for this kind of signals and follow them with fatal certainty until they find the source. When they have found the source they dig up to the surface. Inside the creatures built in technology parts are programmed to detonate in a devastating explosion when breaking through the surface, resulting in a total demolition of the targeted object and the digger creature itself of course.

    The loss of a highly developed creature seems high, but is very small compared to the destruction of a military target.

    Deadline:
    Wednesday, 15th March 2006

    ok, let me make sure I got this straight. The bases are on the surface and these beasts dig to the signal, coming out onto the surface an explode?

    Hmmm, this one is gonna be a little tougher than the last one. It's more specific and so theres more things that have to be integrated into the creature. I think this one will definitely look a bit more techy considering the different systems that might be necessary for such an organism.

    Id like to see it in a battle to the death with one of those gigantic koi goldfish in a tank at a chinese food restaurant. Two creatures enter, one....ends up on my plate, delicious. There can only be one highlander.
