EMERGENCY RADIO BROADCAST (Dec '18 Monthly Design Challenge)

Postby Tankoda » December 1st, 2018, 10:26 pm

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for the following special announcement. Your undivided and immediate attention please. EMERGENCY RADIO BROADCAST.
A team of scientists working in an undisclosed location has discovered THAT THE WORLD WILL BE ANNIHILATED SHORTLY. Emergency measures are being taken, but there is not enough time to evacuate the planet. MOST OF US WILL DIE.
…Unless we are able to prevent this calamity. IF YOU ARE SKILLED IN THE ART OF PAPERFOLDING, THE GOVERNMENT SOLICITS YOUR HELP. CALLING ALL FOLDERS. Send all folders you know. EVERYONE WILL BE NEEDED.
These scientists have traced the source of this problem to DEEP TIME. Details are currently confidential, but only one person will be able to be sent to save the world. This person will be chosen based on a series of tests and challenges that will set him or her apart as our planet’s potential savior. Whoever is chosen will be sent at an undisclosed time to an undisclosed time to solve an undisclosed problem AND SAVE THE PLANET.
The first challenge begins NOW. Those folders brave enough to compete will be transported more than 200 years into geologic time, back to the PERMIAN PERIOD, before even the dinosaurs existed. Folders must show their ability and worthiness by COMPETING IN A SAVAGE BATTLE OF THE MIND AND BODY.
Many will compete. Many will DIE, SAVAGELY CRUSHED BY THEIR OPPONENTS or EATEN BY A HUNGRY DIMETRODON. Few will survive. Only one will WIN.
In order to survive, you must blend into the Permian environment. Hide your human vulnerability by creating a PERMIAN CREATURE.
Due to time-travel related limitations, you will have only a single square sheet of paper. No scissors or glue will be transported with you (water will be available in the environment). Hide your human weakness by creating this Permian creature, OR YOU WILL BE EATEN.
Legally, we are required to mention that only the winner will be able to return to the 21st century. DO NOT LET THIS DISCOURAGE YOU FROM COMPETING. YOU ARE ABOUT TO DIE ANYWAY.
IF YOU ARE CAPABLE OF COMPETING, YOU MUST. THE FATE OF THE HUMAN RACE IS IN YOUR HANDS. Permian creatures to consider for folding include (but are NOT limited to): Dimetrodon, Edaphosaurus, Seymouria, Diplocaulus, Cacops, Trimerorhachis, Varanosaurus, Ophiacodon, Eryops, Platyhystrix, Sphenacodon, Secodontosaurus, Diadectes, Captorhinus, Cotylorhynchus, and MANY OTHERS. The government official and origami guru Colonel Folderp will chose the folder most worthy.
YOU HAVE ONE MONTH.
YOUR PLANET DEPENDS ON YOU. DO NOT FAIL US.
End of emergency broadcast. We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

I've created a Dimetrodon to protect myself from the harsh environment of the Permian period:

Goldtiger, that's a great model, and everyone else, if Goldtiger can make a model that good that quickly, you all have no excuse to not enter okay?
