Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Leviathans/sea serpents/sea dragons (NSFW?)

Post by Rendrassa » March 4th, 2017, 10:35 pm

What is your idea of leviathans and sea serpents? I personally think of the Final Fantasy 9 summon. That was my first FF game, so all the summon versions of that game really stuck with me. http://ffc.rpgclassics.com/EspMon/leviathan9-b2.jpg

But what do you think? Should a leviathan be more sleek? And what kind of reproduction should they have?

Feel free to discuss any sort of leviathan/sea serpent/ect. Just trying to get the topic rolling.

Sea dragons for me look more Eastern rather than European - more like a snake. Less interesting personally than the European kind.
People are like dragons. They can be dangerous, but they can be friendly. But whatever you are, take flight into the blue abyss of endless possibility!

I wasn't aware there was a western kind. All leviathans I've ever seen where snake-like. Unless you means the inclusion of wing-like fins to be western?

I meant European dragons in general not European water dragons... although I'm sure they exist with some folklore.

I've seen some of the supposed real photographs of sea serpents and sea monsters that have washed up. They all resemble either snake like things or plesiosaurs.

If your talking about art I've always found the Kraken Dragon hybrids to be interesting but I do like the more traditional ship swallower beasts.

Ah, okay. We were talking sea dragons, so I got confused.

And yeah, Loki. The massive beasts of the sea that can swallow ships whole are certainly terrifyingly majestic.

I guess the questiion then is, what percentage of sea dragons, serpents etc. are a hide shine, like Mallis, Despina, compared to reinforced scales on similar type creatures, that go into the deepest parts of the seas and oceans.

I wouldn't even know where to start to find a percentage, Aquilla.
