What goes on giant tortoises?

Post by madd0ct0r » 2019-12-23 02:40pm

I have to do some 3d modelling for a course.

Going to focus on nomadic clan that live on backs of giant tortoises in vast grasslands.

What sort ofthings should a one-back village have?

Go research Mongol yurts. Some of them are built on wagons for easier transport.

There is an episode of Avatar - Legend of Korra, that has settlements on the back of giant lion-turtles and lion-tortoises. I'd go watch that.

If a black-hawk flies over a light show and is not harmed, does that make it immune to lasers?

Maybe put everything on a big howdah?

A moving graveyard.

They tie their corpses to buildings and trail them off the back. Fertilize soil far and wide as they decay and fall apart, and when they're gone, they have finally become one with the earth and attained peace of the soul. The evil ones are put in boxes to keep them from reaching peaceful rest.

The Old Testament has as much validity for the foundation of a religion as the pattern my recent case of insect bites formed on my ass.
