Physical Description[edit]

Whables are bipedal whales with muscular human legs and arms. The rest of their body is a whale. They slur in their speech because their tongues are huge. They have small eyes and are unable to walk into human sized doors.


Whables were a mutation caused by a meteorite striking the pacific ocean, releasing nuclear energy. Now Whables search the land for food, home and adventure. They have one enemy, Whable hunters.


Whables follow the biggest, strongest Whable in their tribe. There are multiple tribes ranging from Mlens, Echs, Keghs, and Thorts. These tribes provide no bonus, only cool colors. Mlens=Blue, Echs=Green, Keghs=Red, Thorts=Black. These colors come in war paint.

Whable Names[edit]

Whables have special names based on what ocean or sea they were born in.

Male: Hudson, Red, Davis, Darien
