Celatid venom is a paralytic nerve toxin, not 'happy juice".

If you have previously posted an entry that is already in the asset list, you can PM me with updates, I will eventually go through all the entries to proof them for this as time permits. Making your own corrections is greatly appreciated of course!
Thanks everyone for your hard work!

I'd like to ask our creative text members to discuss a timeframe for working out some of the details, milestones if you will, when we will decide on some final names and basic storyline points. This allows us to develop other areas and move forward, otherwise we will endlessly go in circles over the same points. There will always be new people coming in with new ideas, so we need to form a consensus with those we have and move on IMO.
EDIT: Polls are in progress for specific names at this point, and will continue until we have versions not in conflict with other software titles.

To make sure that these ideas are considered, writers should make a point of visiting the Images forum, and look for a thread regarding the items they have worked on. If a thread doesn't exist you can make one, just make the name short and sweet. For example, "Reaper/Raptor Concepts" is all you need in the title.
Then in the thread, you shouldn't copy and paste the entire text there, just summarize the physical aspects of the entry that your text relies on. This is something members can do without a text as well, the concept threads can be started without any pictures, in fact the submission guidelines state that ideas be discussed first before visual concepts begin, so starting the discussion with the text can help get the ball rolling.
Please realise that even if you post your ideas, they are just concepts and not written in stone. The CTD members have been forewarned that if an artwork concept totally contradicts a previous text writeup but fits with the look and feel of the game in general, the text will always lose out. Writers take that chance by writing specifics ahead of time. Hopefully this system of visiting the artwork threads early on might help, as it's not the artist's responsibility to hunt down any text write-ups of what they are doing. All concepts belong in the Images forum, so it's the writers' responsibility to include their ideas if they want them considered.
If anybody has specific questions regarding this or clarifications, PM me and I'll do my best to answer. I'd prefer to keep posts in this thread announcements only, for quicker reads by new members.
