buzzard eagle

Winged people.

-Okay but peple with wings. People having wings specific to different birds, people with owl wings able to gracefully fly without making a sound, people with air diving bird wings (eagles, hawks, buzzards) who can fall for long distances but not break any bones if they land correctly, people with water bird wings who have water proof ones which dry very quickly. 

-Society having sub groups among the subgroups each type of wings having stereotypes (eg. prey birds: Housewife/husband).

-Peoples wings become more colourful the more loved they feel.

-Wings that mimic their emotions many have learnt to keep them under control but some keep them tightly shut so they don’t seem obnoxious or knock everything over.

-People who dye their wings whether due to fashion trend or think their wings are boring.

-Laws in certain areas, like building sites and sky scrapers where you aren’t allowed to fly.

-Stress causing feathers to fall off.

-Everyone moults and gets a new and beautiful wingsthat stand out, this time of year is different for everyone.

-People with small wings wanting big fluffy ones, people with big fluffy ones veiwing their wings as clumsy and as a nuisance and wating smaller neat wings.

-A couple of people who beleive that certain wing types have certain personalities (like the zodiac but with wings) and devoting their lives to that belief. One example could be people with Robin wings are angry and arrogant.

-People with different sized lungs dependant on what altitude they can get to and how large their lungs are.

-Swimming with wings. Those who haven’t got water proof wings can buy a wax which makes them more sublime in the water.

-Wing competitions (like body building competitions and fashion competitions).

-Cameramen Kestrels (They can hover and stay in one place for a while kestrels are like helicopters)

-Little children wanting to fly but their wings aren’t big enough, usually you can learn to fly at 11-18 years of age. 

-Teenagers who have had growth spurts unable to fly for a while cos their wings aren’t able to grow fast enough.

-Some people being natrually better at building muscle, or find it easier to gain fat and then find it hard to lose it due to their wing type.

-Flying police, paramedics and fire fighters who are strong af as they have to carry their equipment and suits/uniforms sometimes even carry others.

Random Kaiju Generator!

by Michael Harrel

A system-agnostic, slightly Pacific Rim-centric (but useful for other settings), card-based giant monster creation aid.

Instructions: Draw 6 cards and build on the results.

Cards 1 and 2 - Animal Bases
The kaiju’s physical description should be a combination of these two animals; however, neither animal should be mentioned by name in your description. (i.e., if you’re describing Gamera, don’t just say “It’s a giant turtle with elephant tusks.”)

Hearts
A Waterbear/Tardigrade
2 Blob/Gelatin/Amoeba/Jellyfish
3 Centipede/House Centipede
4 Slug/Leech/Worm/Bobbit Worm
5 Spider/Scorpion
6 Shrimp/Mantis Shrimp
7 Bacteriophage
8 Grasshopper/Weta/Cricket
9 Antlion larvae
10 Mosquito
J Fly / Wasp / Hornet
Q Dust Mite
K Coccolithophores/Radiolaria

Diamonds
A Bat / Vampire bat
2 Pangolin/Armadillo
3 Platypus
4 Giraffe
5 Mole/Naked Mole Rat/Starnose Mole
6 Porcupine / Echidna / Hedgehog

8 Jellyfish / Man o’ War
9 Shark
10 Demon/Dragon
J Trespasser Model
Q Trespasser Model
K Trespasser Model

Cards 3-4: Special Characteristics
Your kaiju will also have special attacks, powers, or other characteristics, which may not have anything to do with the base animals. (I.e., Gamera’s rocket propulsion is almost entirely unrelated to normal turtle behavior.)

Card 5: Category/Height/Weight
This card is fairly Pacific Rim-universe specific, so if you’re generating a kaiju for another setting, feel free to skip it. The card’s suit is irrelevant here.

A - Category 1 / 200ft / 2000 tons
2 - Category 2 / 200 - 300ft / 2000 - 3000 tons
3 - Category 2 / 250 - 350ft / 2500 - 3500 tons
4 - Category 3 / 300 - 400ft / 3000 - 4000 tons
5 - Category 3 / 350 - 450ft / 3500 - 4500 tons
6 - Category 4 / 350 - 400ft / 3500 - 4500 tons
7 - Category 4 / 400 - 500ft / 4000 - 5000 tons
8 - Category 4 / 400 - 500ft / 4000 - 5000 tons
9 -  Category 4 / 450 - 550ft / 4500 - 5500 tons
10 - Category 4 / 450 - 550ft / 4500 - 5500 tons
J - Category 5 / 500-600ft / 5000-6000 tons
Q - Category 5 / 600ft / 6000 tons
K - Daikaiju / > 600ft / > 6000 tons

Speed, Strength, and Armor start at 7 each. You may add a number of points equal to twice the Kaiju’s category, and may move points from one column to another on a 1-for-1 basis.

Card 6: Kaiju Name Type
The examples given are mostly Pacific Rim-related, but I feel like Pacific Rim had pretty good kaiju names and you won’t go wrong by following them. As in Card 5, the suit of the card drawn doesn’t matter.

A. Portmanteau (e.g., Ceramander)
2. Portmanteau (e.g., Ceramander)
3. Gods, Demons, Monsters (e.g., Raiju, Hundun)*
4. Gods, Demons, Monsters (e.g., Raiju, Hundun)*
5. Descriptive Compound Noun (e.g., Knifehead)
6. Verb with Negative Connotations Ending in -er (e.g., Tresspasser, Reckoner, etc)
7. Verb with Negative Connotations Ending in -er (e.g., Tresspasser, Reckoner, etc)
8. Archaic Insult (e.g., Slattern)
9. Horrible Pun (e.g., Scissure)
10. Ends in “-ra(s)” or “-(g/d)on/-an” (e.g., ‘Gojira”, “Gamera”, “Rodan”, “Megalon”)
J. Random Vaguely Negative Word (e.g., Hardship)
Q. Person Associated with Horror Films (e.g., Karloff)
K.  Portmanteau + Gods, Demons, Monsters (E.g., )

*For some Gods, Demons, and other Monster names, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_theological_demons,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Chaos_gods,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_legendary_creatures)

Example Kaiju:
Codename: Moloch
Category: 5
Height: 500 ft  
Weight: 4000 tons
Speed: 10
Strength: 15
Armor: 14
Attack behavior: Savage and unrestrained.
Toxicity: Medium
Powers: Extreme Regeneration, impenetrable carapace, powerful teeth, claws, and tail
Weaknesses: Precious Few
City Targeted: Santiago, Chile

Description: Moloch has two large horns on its head, and a heavy carapace on its back, covered in spikes. Its main forearms are quite long, indicating that it may be partially quadrupedal. It has a prominent lantern jaw, and rough, reptilian skin. Its hands and fingers are long, with sharp, wicked looking claws. Its tail is likewise covered in savage spikes, and can be used as a whip.

Moloch’s carapace is strong enough to deflect virtually all attacks against it, and even should its shell be pierced, or a weapon aimed at its softer underside, its incredible rate of regeneration will heal the wound within moments – even to the point of regrowing lost limbs. Even when decapitated, the kaiju’s second brain takes over, and given enough time (several hours), the first head will grow back.
