The Happy Elucubration

[b]The Elucubration Creature[/b]

Elucubrations are very friendly creatures. They so friendly that they won't even fight! They do however participate in fights out of curiosity. At some point i needed a creature as a guinee pig for my wildest experiments so i created this one. The b/w version is a HALLOWEEN collectable creature, while the colored/premium version is still highly unstable (wild features such as jumping from owner to owner, multiplicating, eating candy, laying eggs and a lot more). The reason it looks slightly different than the other MD creatures is that the sketch is done by me and i am no 'Artist'. I consider this to be the friendliest creatures around and represents for me a sort of pet. The Elu always takes care of its offsprings with most care. The most important thing for them is to provide their little ones with candy. Candy is THE best thing that can happen to such a creature. Elucubrations think they can fly, so you should never tell them otherwise..even if they don't always succeed, they think they can fly, and that keeps them happy. Don't get fooled by their dumb face, elucubrations think differently. They might not understand simple things but they understand feelings better than any other creature..and in the end..thoughts are made of feelings to express feelings. When elucubrations are angry they will run away, write random stuff, or eat a lot, thats why currently i keep these abilities unfinished :P Elucubrations love colors, they think that colors are the soul of candy so colors should be good. Offer flowers or something colorful and they will be very happy about it. Careful, they eat flowers but can't digest them. Elu enjoys collecting colored paper or on some occasions it even produces it out of plants and natural dyes. The colored paper collection of this creature represents its most important achievement. This paper can be collected by the creature owner but that would make the Elu very unhappy. I wish elucubrations were immortal, sadly they are not, they die of loneliness or sadness, A happy elucubration however lives forever.

Ability suggestion:
During a fight, Elu's take upto one of each different type of token used in the fight. It takes from both the user and the enemy, first checking the player who is taking the first turn for tokens to steal.
If it already has tokens, it does not steal tokens it already has.
It uses them itself, behaving differently depending on what tokens it has.
After the battle, it returns all stolen tokens, and permanently consumes any tokens it had on itself before the combat.

(Alternately, it only returns the enemies tokens, and consumes all the tokens left on it after that) Edited by Kyphis the Bard

Ability suggestion:
Because the Elus love color so, so much, happy Elu's can sometimes go a little crazy for it.
If they get really happy and go berserk for color, they'll randomly steal the color away from your other creatures, be it through tokens or just the color from your shop creatures.

Wouldn't it make more sense for it to be the unhappy ones that do that? Because they want to be happier.

I was thinking about that, because there are some creatures that you would want the color removed from and some that you really really don't.
So it could do a wide variety of color stealing things depending on its mood, perhaps?

It'd be silly if you could just take its paper, kick a few times, and end up with a gg.

Are people ignoring the second sentence? That they're so friendly they won't even fight? lol - why're you trying to give ability suggestions? :P

Perhaps it should be like an egg? You cannot place them in a ritual because they'll refuse to fight! (Or they may weaken creatures through their friendliness, make them lose their guard)

Are you ignoring the third sentence? They're curious beings :D
And if there was a lot of color involved, I'm sure you could convince an Elu to do anything!
