The world is a dangerous place.
If you journey too far east, you will find the sea, filled with sharks and killer whales.
If you journey too far south, into the marshlands, you will be ambushed by the feared Dinosuchus, the terrible crocodile.
If you journey too far west, you will find only desert. You might try to get back, but however far you go, you will only see more sand.
If you journey too far north, you will see death... Death in the form of lizards... Giant lizards... Terrible lizards... You know what I'm speaking of. Dinosaurs.
The only safe place is here, Therium Valley, where we mammals thrive in peace and harmony, away from the terrors of the world. From the great Mastodon to the meek Diacodexis, we are safe.
Of course we sometime have skirmishes (probably started by the Smilodons), but conflict is unavoidable. There is no place where there is total peace, except for the Valley of Clouds. No one has ever gone there without coming back, for the only way there is through death. Our ancestors sometimes speak to us in holy places, like the Pool of Shadows, the Sea of Stars, and the Stone of Centuries. But even there we can hear only whispers, and only the wisest of us can interpret them.
But enough talk of the impossible. Let me introduce myself. I am Dougal the Procoptodon, a runt of my great species. But who are you, young mammal, and do you wish to join the safety of Therium Valley?
•No cussing. If your character needs an interjection here and there, censor ( [CENSORED] ) or cartoon cuss ( $#*~! ).
•No violence. There can be a little blood, but keep it minimal.
•No powerplaying. You are just an animal. Now fetch the stick.
•Don't just sit there; FETCH THE STICK!
•You cannot be a modern day animal. If you want to be a modern day animal, look up a prehistoric creature that is almost the same. (Mouse: Oligokyphus.)
•Come up with something creative! I don't want this rpg to just be stacked full of just Mammoths, saber-tooth tigers, and dodos! Try something like Andrewsarchus or Toxodon!
•Be realistic. Don't have a Dodo work a cell phone! They don't even have hands! Besides, this is set in prehistoric times, so NO CELL PHONES ALLOWED!
•Don't be unfair to another person's character. Don't just kill them for no apparent reason! Let them have fun too!
If you need help thinking of creatures, ask me. Just don't make one up. Here's a list of cool mammals:
Propelopus: carnivore kangaroo
Procoptodon: giant kangaroo
Diacodexis: skinny rabbit/deer looking thing that is 2 inches tall
Indricotherium: the largest land mammal that ever existed, and related to the Black Rhino, though it does not have a horn.
Andrewsarchus: Looks like a giant hyena and is the only carnivore that was a threat to the Indricotherium.
