Question: Oorbools description

#1 Post by MatGB » Fri Jan 17, 2014 5:17 pm

The original commit introducing them, and the current en.txt stringtable, both have a sentence that trails off
+A giant serpentine swimmer, an Ourbools most distinctive feature is the massive bow curving away on either side of their head. This houses the gravi-sensory organs. Three tentacles hanging in front of the mouth allow Ourbools to manipulate their environment. Ourbools mate only once in their life, and devote the next 35 years to caring for the school of 5 to 7 young -- generally assisted by relatives. Ourbools live long so
+
They live long so?

Eleazar, your creation, what was meant to go there?

(I'm workign through en.txt to correct spellings and grammar like I said I would, I'll leave the description exactly as is for now)

I don't remember what i was trying to write. My notes don't provide any insight.

Sloppy of me to commit a sentence fragment-- just delete it.
