Hi, Sethblizzard! Systematic extermination played a large part, but the reason for it, as well as the other part that sealed their fate, is spoilerific in nature, so unfortunately, I can’t go into detail about that just yet.
Not at all. Creepers like “Reaper” and Othello aside, most do well as part of integrated societies. Myods that can create superbeasts are a rarity, so it isn’t common knowledge that such Myods exist. As a result, they don’t earn distrust from other races in this regard (though some may feel their wearing of masks to be suspicious). Many are artisans and craftsmen, tending to gravitate towards woodworking, ceramics, tailoring, or oilery. Those who aren’t so good with their hands may try to take advantage of their mystique and pass themselves off as fortune tellers (but don’t be fooled). Wealthier Myods also tend to be patrons of the arts.
In short, most Myods are productive members of society and would probably make good neighbors. Just don’t be upset when your fortune turns out to be BS.
That might just be a Kedamono ability regardless of superbeast status. He doesn’t abuse it, though.
Hi, squeakyraffe! Domestic raptor chickens stand about 28-32 inches tall (approx. 71-82 cm), and average market weight is 12-18 lbs (approx 5.5-8 kg), so a little larger than a Langshan chicken. Wild ones are much smaller, at a height of 16-20 inches (approx. 40.5-51 cm) and weighing 6-8 lbs. (approx 3-3.5 kg) on average.
It’s been a little bit since I posted a preview here! This week you’ll see a couple of new critters in the PoL world, these raptor chickens (for lack of a better term) among them. Their tails in particular are pretty tasty, so maybe I’ll post my world famous roast rapticken(?) tail recipe one day~
Hey, PoLsters! Sorry for such short notice, but we’re in the process of doing some site finegaling in hopes of finally wiping out those pesky 403 errors some of you have been getting, so the site will be down for a wee bit. If you need your fix in the meantime, the entire PoL archive is on my Weasyl account. Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience.
Kedamono and Gaur, the awesome superbeasts from Pride of Life. Hope you like it, AsterionBlazing!

Look at Kedamono’s little bulldog tooth :’D
Look at Gaur, so stoic, so beefy :”D
You bet I like it! Thank you, Kensuke!
It depends. If a person becomes a superbeast through ‘natural’ means, those means typically come with their own checks so people can’t abuse them (The World Tree, for example, can only produce a maximum of two fruits at a time, and does not produce new fruit until the person that ate its previous fruit dies). Assuming the best conditions and that all natural means are accessible, there is a max number that can be created in this way.
Superbeasts created by Myods are a bit different. Without giving too much away, of the ones that can create superbeasts, they can technically do so throughout their lifetime, provided certain conditions are met. The process is exhaustive for everyone involved, though, so you definitely won’t see one making a superbeast assembly line of him-/herself.
I can’t answer about the number in the world with certainly, but on the continent where the story is currently taking place, there are at least seven (named) superbeasts.
That’s it for now. Until next time, beastly reader persons!
Just kicking off a new sketchbook with some gestures of our monkey friend from earlier in the episode. Since his eyes are covered 99% of the time, he conveys his feelings mostly via body language. Not being able to use facial expressions with him as much will be a challenge for me, but as they say, chimpin’ ain’t easy! *is slapped*
I am also looking forward to seeing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
