I interpreted "conquered" as meaning terrain that had been seized from the enemy rather than an enemy that had been defeated...

The worm looks too much like a weird snake species to me. All worms I know have no eyes or horn on their head. In fact, they do not have any differentiation to tell whether it is their tail or head.

Amazing! I really see this in motion in my mind. I see it rather as the mushroom sitting there, in the eyes of the worm having been conquered, the worm triumphantly revels at it too. Ha ha ha! I feel your accomplished joy, Mr. Triumphant Worm. :mrgreen:

Coming from SynErr I assumed the mushroom was sentient, but you could well be right.

a _worm_ conquering _terrain_ from the enemy? oh please, that is ridiculous, who would ever draw something as unrealistic as that :|

imo the image of "snake" is more biological, referring to the one group of species, while imo "worm" is much more general, not only meaning lintworms and similar but also eg sea serpents and leviathans etc... hope its not just me.

But the worm has that evil take-over-the-world look in its eye.... mwahahaha!
But otherwise, it looks... well... strange.....
