    Previous thread: >>6598071

    You assign the captured brood to work beneath Tank, who trains them to go about guarding. They are rapidly beginning to grow and are working together quite well in groups – but no better that the first generation of your children do. Tank informs you that he sees no abnormalities amongst them – none of this deviant intellect that you speak of. They’re as intelligent as he is.

    Meanwhile, Scout and Flyer continue to search. They have located another pride of cats and a small pack of dogs. However, they’ve also located another abandoned storage rooms. Within it is a small cairn of dog and cat skulls.

    Swimmer and Fish have subdued a prey creature. It’s an interesting thing. It’s like the fish that you ate before your latest gestation, except it’s flat, with a long thin tail. It’s a stingray. Amongst their other examples is a pair of jellyfish and a seahorse.

    You have a few moments during which you can react to this. Your brood is about to hatch.

    have fish eat parts of the stingray.

    while carp are good for just being a swimmer, a stingray is a better aquatic predator than carp, and as such are good genetic material

    The sting ray should go to Swimmer and Fish mostly. The addition of a poison stinger would help them greatly in dealing with aquatic threats. Share the jellyfish with Tank and Slugboy and Sluggirl. Being able to be poisonous on touch would help Tank protect, and give Slugboy/girl a nasty method to keep the others in line "You do not believe in Slul-Hoggoth?!" Touch.

    Sea Horse, I can see if we want to make mobile breeders, who carry the young with them. Although this might be hazardous (See chestburster)

    >> LDT-A 11/06/09(Fri)23:43 No.6599509
    Strictly speaking as long as we eat the non-business ends of the stingray and the jellyfish we should be fine. However I'm not fully confident that their genomes will be as useful to us as they will to other members of our brood.

    The seahorse... is a pretty pathetic creature and won't improve our genome short of using its novel dna with a very heavy focus on evolution as opposed to growth. Also, the males carry the young. I believe this was the whole reason we became a patriarch, so, you know, not such a great idea.

    I vote that the stingray be split four ways between swimmer, fish, us, and half of fishes young when they hatch. The jellyfish go to the other half of fishes young, making sure we keep psychic control over them to stop them accidentally getting stung while they eat.

    The seahorse... hell, I don't know.
    >> Ragebrew Slugbeard 11/06/09(Fri)23:43 No.6599511
    I advise we avoid eating the jellyfish ourself. It's soft body will hamper us greatly while working on land. The venomous stingers would be nice, but there are better creatures to consume for such. We should focus on becoming as large as possible, with as many varying traits as we can sustance, thus allowing us far greater flexibility than any of our single purpose spawn.

    Have Swimmer and Fish try and get a crab of some sort to feed to Tank. Pincers+Extra carapace? DO WANT

    You hand over the stingray to Swimmer and Fish.
    You eat the seahorse and portions of the jellyfish. The rest of the jellyfish goes to Fish, Tank, Guy and Girl.

    The hatchlings emerge. They possess most of their mothers' traits, and some of yours.
    The children of Fish carry your mouth harpoons, lacking poison.
    The children of Swimmer have spinnerets and mouth harpoons, lacking poison.
    The children of Scout have four eyes and webbed claws.
    The children of Girl have webbed claws and mouth harpoons.
    Yet again, they're all ever so tiny, each one mostly less than an inch in size. They'll grow soon enough, and become fairly large. What do you wish to do with them?

    Influence them to love us. Tell them how awesome we are and how we want to make them strong and all that jazz, that we are a family who works together.

    Just to elaborate, the Jellyfish is ultimately going to:
    Reduce resilience
    Reduce Intelligence
    Reduce terrestrial capability
    Increase Aquatic Capability
    Increase small food gathering ability.

    As such we want these guys to become the underwater farmer class as it were. This means that the two optimal builds containing jellyfish dna are the ones that are already fully aquatic, and the ones that contain some spider dna (With a heavy emphasis on evolution vs. growth we might be able to create stinging webspinners even).

    As such this is really something to hand over to the aquatic offspring as well as those that we feel uncomfortable having around the hive. Giving it to the Schmaklings is ultimately an inefficient gesture, practically an execution sentence. Honestly a good idea would be to have swimmers (Jeez I should probably start using his actual name since it has one) brood, when he eventually has one, eat some jellyfish.

    Nothing gave you your shooty tongue. Primarily, that's a mutation that you've created.

    Sometimes your evolution is altered by your experience. In this case, as you relied more and more heavily on your vomit, your vomit became more acidic, then your vomit became a calcium dart which became the harpoon. It's not a stretch, seeing as conidae, not-so-distant relatives, also have calcium harpoons.

    Also, not that I'm neccessarily trying to sway either way, but if:
    We focus on growth and human genes, we can steal some clothes and pass for a very short hobo.
    We won't be able to fit into a lot of the crawl spaces we used to and will hence be reliant on our offspring. As in, completely unable to do certain things without their assistance. Not like right now where their help simply makes things we could have done anyway easier.

    If this is so, then we must consider it an opportunity to experiment with our other new combat asset. HANDS.

    new dna is interesting, but numbers are going to give us the edge if it comes down to a war with the Shmehkahs
    for that matter they'll give us the edge if we come up against any other threat greater than a hobo

    on a related note, i think we are shifting from survival by concealment in the sewers to survival by dominance over our territory in the sewers and so we should start pushing some of our children under tank, and tank himself to grow as large as they can

    if we still have reservations about the shmecklings we should assign some of each brood to tank.
    actually, thats a good idea anyway, instead of giving each brood to their respective parent we should diversify, get some fishlings learning from scout, some girl-lings learning from swimmer, etc etc

    The mind of a cat is ever so easy for you to understand. It’s pitiful, in fact. You weave curiosity around them like a blanket, wrapping it around them and drawing them in close to your location. Of course, once you’re spotted, they seem surprisingly confident. Just you versus them? Easy.

    That’s when it happens. With a sudden burst, you force crushing fear into their hearts and minds. Sheer, absolute terror. The sort of thing that a deer feels when it stares into the headlights of a car. And, true enough, the cats simply freeze, twitching and staring about themselves in horror. Even as you begin to kill them, one by one by one, they don’t move. They just stand there. It’s almost disappointing. The last one, you don’t even have to kill. The sheer weight of your mind upon it breaks it. The thing collapses into a catatonic state.

    Not a single bit of work – yet just like that, you wiped out a pack of cats.

    after gestating we need to split up slightly into a primary camp where our eggs were, and a secondary camp where the betrayer's were. Give all of our first generation children instructions on the basic ideas behind evolution and how to pick which animals to eat, and then give them a general idea of their role. Tell them to eat based on that, with a few examples of what that would mean. Have them organize their underlings similarly, and then focus on putting together a seek-and-destroy force to destroy the heretics, all the while increasing our size and diversity, and working hard to maintain unity.

    You bring the meat back to the hive and you begin to eat. If you wish, you can distribute the meat - but you have got more than enough for yourself there. Slowly, the slime begins to build up around you again. You feel your body become heavy.

    If you have any orders that you wish to give to those who are beneath you, state them now, before you begin to evolve.

    4) Have your children gestate under no circumstances. Never, ever, until you awaken.

    They should focus their eating on creatures that possess abilities that would assist their assigned roles, whenever supply is limited.

    You haven't eaten any of those creatures since your last gestation.

    Once you gestate, you lose the genetics of something that you had previous eaten.

    For example, after this gestation, if you don't eat seahorse, you can't become seahorse.

    Not so much the tank orgy at the end, I think we need to keep mating to a moderation right now (IE one pregnant female at any given time), but otherwise this does mesh with my suggestion, and I had completely forgotten that swimmers offspring deserve no limits by nature of their heritage.

    You attempt to communicate while gestate but unfortunately, you fail. This state requires your mind to be dormant.
    In any case, you awaken and you have... well, you’ve grown, to say the least. You’ve gone from two feet tall to three feet and a half. Your back is straighter and you no longer have the gorilla gait that you had before – you now walk like a human being. Your primary arms also have opposable thumbs now, just like your dextrous, articulated little chest claws. Your tail is a bit longer and you notice that you have excellent balance! But, besides these chances, there is no real difference. Your leg has healed further – there’s still a minor limp, but it’s nothing to worry about. As for your partially melted face, it’s purely cosmetic at this rate.

    That is not the important part. You have an army.

    All of your brood, that which you captured and that which you sired, have grown to their full sizes. It’s quite impressive, really. All of your children are eating healthily, and they have a rather large pile of new food. Crabs, large fish, all sorts of saltwater creatures.

    Tank informs you that breeding has been taking place. Swimmer carries his young, Girl carries the young of Guy and one of Swimmer’s brood has impregnated a large quantity of its siblings. This individual is surprisingly large – the same size you were before you gestated. It’s muscular and powerful and generally, superior to its mother in every way. Tank appears worried that his position may be usurped. Let’s call this individual Athlete.

    It is imperative that we at least find out how Athlete got this way before we take any action, diplomatic or otherwise. It seems mighty suspicious to say the least, some external influence we are unaware could be acting. For all we know Athelete's psychic capabilities may have developed in parallel.

    Do we really want to gain some wounds so soon after our latest gestation? It sounds like Athlete could actually hurt us, even though defeating us would be out of the question.

    A path I have been considering as a future objective for some time, however we will need at least one more phase of serious growth before this is an option.

    Seconded absolutely. Have them enter gestation, the eggs can also continue maturing during this time, taking Athlete away from them ensures that he doesn't try any funny business if what Tanks paranoia suggests is true, and it also gives us a chance to gauge just how powerful Athlete is, and formulate and experiment with strategies to coordinate swarms of offspring in hypothetical future scenarios.

    Seek council with the first generation, have them report on those that have trained under them, have them recommend one to serve in their stead while they gestate.

    Before we start raiding the surface, we need to become amphibious so we can escape into the ocean if things go against us. Make Athlete our bodyguard and feed him big predatory animals.

    We should start dividing our brood into castes for easy management.

    Fanatics (Schmeklings), who will only be allowed to breed amongst themselves and who will be brainwashed continually into being fanatically loyal to you, to your god and to the hive; as well as being fanatically hateful towards all non-believers. They'll be expendable, meant for offense.

    Warriors: Those with combat features. Meant for defense and hunting. Those with spinnerets spin webs for trapping food and thicker webs for trapping enemies.

    Aquatic Scouts: Fish and Swimmer and friends.

    Aerial Scouts: Flyer and friends
