Synopsis

The Nigerien Firespitter is one of the most obscure cryptids told from back home. Only ever sighted once, the Nigerien Firespitter's tale comes from a report of a single individual who reported an event that happened in the town of Arlit, Niger. Apparently shortly after the happening of a recent earthquake, local uranium miners from a nearby mine were chased into town by an 80 centimeter (2ft) long, four-legged, snakelike, scaled animal. This small creature had a slightly elongated neck, crocodile like head, and apparently was so aggressive when disturbed in the mine it was discovered, it chased the miners all the way back to the town. When local soldiers shot at it, the creature defended itself by breathing flame back at the soldiers until it was slain. Granted the bodily proportions of the reported animal, it was estimated the creature encountered was a baby, and a search was undertaken for the parents, which ended up fruitless. Fast forward to humanity's time on the arks now, and there are tales told by frequent cave-venturing tribes of something that scurries through the arks' depths. Almost like a Rock Drake without feathers, this ground-bound creature matches the description of the Nigerien Firespitter. Those in caves who report the miniscule animals state that despite being seemingly infants, these young creatures are extremely aggressive and very dangerous. Those are Aberrant arks also report sightings of these creatures...and what very well may be adults. These adult creatures are extremely vicious animals with a scorching breath and scalding bite. Although they seem, at a safe glance, to have ideal traits for a mount, these adult animals are far too aggressive and dangerous to bend to one's will, so the story goes. However, it might be possible, somehow, to tame the infant creatures, should someone find a way to calm them into becoming friendly and imprint upon them. Tamed, this fire-breathing, dinosaur-like creature might prove an ideal mount and partner for a survivor skilled, or suicidal enough to claim one.

Notes/Trivia

  • The Nigerien Firespitter according to the stories had a much more saurian-appearance, being quite similar in anatomy to a quadropedal spinosaur. However, in Additional Creatures, it has a look more akin to a lizard or drake rather than a dinosaur or crocodile.
  • The Nigerien Firespitter is the only creature in Additional Creatures to live in caves.
  • In the mod's canon, the Nigerien Firespitter is related to the Lake Van Monster and Smok saurovindico.
  • The Nigerien Firespitter spawns in the Volcano region of Ragnarok, due to the map not having the adequate caves to properly tame and bring back a Nigerien Firespitter.
  • Nigerien Firespitter has recieved a TLC since its original inclusion into Additional Creatures which, while giving a custom model and animations, also gave it the ability to burrow, with a series of burrowing attacks.
