Fyoras are the cutest creations you can make. If you don't like lizards as pets, then you probably won't want the horse-sized sulfur and brimstone version. But if you like reptiles, then the older Geneforge fyoras are awesome.

Would you rather go set up camp and lie down with a slimy artilla, a flatulent and floating vlish, a drooling thahd, a scorpion-like clawbug with an insatiable appetite, or a warm fyora?

A cryoa to me seems far less amicable. Unless you live in the Bahamas, I think having your hand frozen every time you want to pet your creation is a major hassle.

Is none of the above an option?

Sure, if you
A) are not a shaper.
B) have emotional detachment from your creations.
C) are the type of person to put outside all pets before going to bed (even the goldfish).

EDIT: If I could choose from all the shaper creations, then I'd probably choose an Ornk, but that's outside of the question's scope.

That's why I like to use the blue-colored Cryogenic Gloves.

I wonder if you could train a cryoa to cryogenically freeze and preserve you if you were on the verge of death. That would be sweet.

Yeah, but when he drops you as he carries you to storage then you shatter into hundreds of pieces.

We will make you like us, and make you believe our propulsion system smells like roses.

That is all.

If I could make just one wish, I would want a tasty vlish.

Geneforge IV. Still no tasty vlish.

What about Arizona? I sometimes wish I had one here to cool me off during the summer.

A glaak wouldn't be fun either, since it would stun you if you sleepwalk or roll around a lot.

But if a fyora is only warm and not burning hot, then a cryoa is cool and not freezing cold. They're perfect for the hot summer months.

Edit: Typo.

I don't know how friendly a cryoa would be because everytime he breathed he'd give you a cold shoulder. At least a fyora would give you a warm welcome.

Also, the fyora in G2 isn't the best.

I want the old fyora back! :confused:

Good point. Still, would you rather hug a cold cryoa or a warm fyora? Also, eyebeasts are just downright creepy. I don't know if I'd like to go to bed with a floating eyeball staring at me.

Roamers would be excellent if it weren't for the acidic drool.

Hugging and or squeezing a Vlish will get you exactly what you deserve.

That depends on whether Dikiyoba is feeling hot or cold at the time.

Since reptiles are cold blooded and thus can neither generate their own heat nor survive when too cold, it would be logical to assume that they are room temperature. Their breath weapons would not effect their body heat, since the most common theory for such anatomy would be glands holding chemicals that, when released, mix just before being projected from their mouths. Cuddling with a fyora or cryoa would be like cuddling with a leather jacket, it might actually be cool to the touch either way unless it was in the sun.

My choice of cuddly creation: ornk. Sleep with it at night... have bacon in the morning... shape... repeat.

Too bad that wouldn't really get you anywhere in terms of nourishment. Hmmm, I wonder if shapers can shape food out of essence directly.

Heavens no. It would be more akin to using a battery to power a fan for a windmill that recharges that battery. The stored electricity must undergo an eccentric conversion before going back to the source because the shaper's essence is actualized as food in an intermediate stage.

I bet that Ornk meat tastes like chicken.

So what other meat do the people of Terrestia eat?

While the new fyoras in G4 are hideous, I prefer the old ones. At any rate, they are cheap, reliable, and excellent for cannon fodder.
