    Your children hatch.

    Let's talk about Tank first of all - he's become bipedal, but moves in a gorilla gait. Front claws are now thick pincers for crushing or mauling. Chitin on torso has units to form a shell. Face has flattened and retreated into said shell. Crab-like features, bear-like structure. Think Mirelurk. 4'0"
    Swimmer's focused on what little human she had eaten after her previous gestation. She now looks like a pale female human with fins here and there, spiky teeth and complete natural baldness. 2'9"
    Athlete has become bestial. Clawed fingers have become long, hideous talons and his maw is littered with gigantic fangs. He's hunched over with a gorilla gait but everything about him screaming power and speed. He's officially male now too. 3'5".
    Fish has focused completely on size. 5'0".
    Scout seems to lack ears - instead, there's a sort of fleshy hood erected around its skull, which has become more spheric and is covered in eight, multi-faceted eyes. The body has become very spider-like, with four long spidery legs and four small, malformed spider legs that are currently useless. 1'9".
    Slug Guy's entire body excretes poison and has become a bit less solid. However, Slug Guy is now water capable. 2'8"
    Slug Girl has developed spinnerets and has a set of spidery legs to assist movement. Less of a slug appearance, more of an 'ant queen' sort of appearance. 2'6"

    Those are your new kids.

    Long-term plan:

    1. Limit our numbers. Assimilate lots of different species' DNA until we or our spawn evolve a form or range of forms that are optimal for FUCKING AWESOME HUMAN-KILLING APEX PREDATOR purposes.

    2. Breed like crazy. Everyone gets pregnant all at once.

    3. Harvest as much biomass as possible, get our new optimum brood to put all of their gestations into getting bigger.

    4. Sweep out in a tide of fangs and claws and deadly cunning.

    5. ?????

    6. Profit.

    You present your gifts to your children and they are all thankful - even Athlete. Especially Athlete, you could say. He and Tank appear to acknowledge one another as equals and as brothers - perhaps due to the change in appearance. They're both more akin now.

    Swimmer and Girl both lay their egg sacs in the remains of the gestation cocoons. You've got fourteen egg sacs that will hatch in a week's time. That's 420 children.

    You've got eight rabbit babies and six rat babies.

    You eat your fill of various food types and finally, it's time to gestate.

    You hatch.

    You're big. Pretty damn fucking big. 4'9", to be precise. That's 142.5cm. Your teeth have become even more vicious and you even have a pair of hideous, mean looking tusks jutting out of your mouth - but your harpoon tongue is missing. Your tail has become more muscular and stronger. The hardened membrane covering your body has strengthened into chitin of sorts. Your body has also become much more muscular in all areas. Your webbed claws have transformed into finely tuned bear hands - so you've sacrificed swimming ability and manipulation in exchange for mauling power - although you still have opposing thumbs. You've fallen back into a crude gorilla gait as well, which helps your stability quite a bit. You also have very muscular backlegs now, too.

    The first thing you're greeted by is a hive of five hundred individuals bowing before you, the vast majority of them newly born. At their head are your first generation. At their head is Athlete, in all his glory and splendor, wearing a tooth necklace and a bear pelt.

    Speaking of infiltrating human cities for spying, we really have no idea what the situation is with our rivals.

    Flyer was probably killed by them, seeing as his advanced form + intelligence would make it easy for him to outperform anything natural.

    That means they already have a sizeable presence above ground, with their forms probably evolved with local wildlife.

    They're clearly much more aggressive than we are, and it's possible, though unlikely, that they've already started their "invasion" into human territory.

    I think that possibly, it may be a good idea to overtake a secluded house somewhere out here. Either a farmhouse that looks abandoned, or a cabin that is out in the middle of the forest.

    You apply the poison to splinters and you begin the process.
    It's successful. Each time, the parasites die. Sometimes they fall off. Sometimes they do not. Unfortunately, Slug Boy's strain appears immune to his poison.

    Slug Boy is the only one carrying living specimens. The rest are carrying different numbers of dead specimens.

    Also, when you sample the DNA contained within the larvae.

    You spit it out immediately.

    A point for your consideration:

    Though they are most likely of the Enemy, these larvae are still of our brood, albeit via the Traitor.

    At present they are unthinking creatures, without anything even resembling a mind of their own. Who is to say that, hatched and raised with our psychic imprint firmly in place, they wouldn't be loyal to our cause?

    I have a plan.

    The Enemy scoured the sewers clean, not because they were hungry, but because they were looking for fresh genetic material.

    We're out in the forest, which puts a considerably wider range of genetic diversity at our disposal. So far we've been focusing too much on the big stuff, the cats and dogs and bears and rats.

    We need to take a leaf from the Enemy's book, and harvest every single creature in an area in order to give us the best possible range of options to choose from when we and our brood evolve. Bugs, birds, fish, worms, everything. Hunting parties move by night to avoid human attention, and remain vigilant against the Enemy's blasphemous spawn at all times. Bring the harvest back here, and we'll see what it's got us.

    No. Even if he dies we can spin this. We can spread the story of the evil. We have our good, Slul-Hugoth and us, his prophet. Well now we have our evil, the taint that subverts even Slul-Hugoths will and destroys his chosen. This could even give our cause strength. Religious fervor is never stronger than when rallying against a hated foe.

    Quickly, you attempt a psychic stun and try to snatch it out, luckily, it works.

    All threats - neutralized. Although Slug Guy now has a rather nasty injury.

    There is absolute astonishment. "We... We had given up hope." That was Athlete. "I did not think that Slul-Huggoth would grant you the ability to do such things."

    Now there's just the problem of making sure that this does not happen again.

    At this stage I am inclined to say that this looks like the work of the scientists rather than our wayward children. We would at least be able to identify it if it were the latter. It is a threat that MUST be dealt with even just for social purposes: It won't do to have another firstborn of Slul-Huggoth running around. Even though they are younger than us and might have acceded to us if they played by the same rules, they are probably engineered to be a superior breed with respect to whatever strange objectives the scientists had in mind, and won't be compatible with us. Seconding immediate construction of tunnels. Also, in future we will need to create some kind of anti air spawn, something with multiple harpoons maybe. But this is all things for later, right now we need to figure out how to save slugboy.

    Hot poker method sounds good, but an entirely valid second to last resort is to eat the back half of the grubs, leaving the mouth attached. The actual last resort is obvious.

    Have Slugboy's wounds bound up with web, and have food brought to him so that he can rest and recover. The trait of poison bestowed upon him by Slul-Hugoth has saved his brood-siblings, and for this we are glad.

    Now, though, is the time to stoke the fires of vengeance against our foe. They have done us a grievous wrong this day, and they will pay for it. They are anathema, vile gene-traitors, and they must be rooted out and destroyed.

    This is actually a pretty good idea for the tactics we should employ: underground and underwater. Tread softly and hit them with everything we've got when we can. If they have the skies, this is our best option.
    >> LDT-A 11/13/09(Fri)23:57 No.6695404
    Given we have resolved the slugboy situation, the earlier half of this takes priority. Tunnels tunnels tunnels, and indeed we should construct shafts leading away from the hive so that we can cover significant distances away from it to hunt without having to be visible from the air.

    And of course, we need to figure out how to create a spawn that can counter this new threat. We currently have no idea what bio-chemical counters will work, so we must focus on a physical counter, something that will be able to spot them and attack back before infection.

    Now my current assessment of the enemy is that it is large (Because it is heavy enough to pin down spawn despite being low density enough to fly), flying, and psychic. The psychic ability is probably what gives the larvae psychic defenses, and allows it to sneak up on spawn. This can be countered by only having large groups above ground at one time, as it can't psychic everyone at once.

    The fact that it is flying suggests it has to be pretty fragile physically once we can get some attacks on it. Unless... Maybe its not flying. Maybe its jumping down from the trees?
    >> Anonymous 11/13/09(Fri)23:57 No.6695406
    We use someone as bait. One of our young, squishy looking ones. Leave him/her out in the open as many others with harpoons lay in wait. When our foe attacks we try to take it alive and mentally break it, till we know where their heart is.

    Webspinners, yes.

    Though we're assuming that just because it implants eggs like a wasp, it flies like one too. Not necessarily so. It's strong enough to overpower Slugboy, so it might be too large to fly properly.

    Either way, we need to hunt this thing down.

    I suggest... bait. A nice, plump, vulnerable-looking slugspawn (so that we can poison the larva out of there if the worse comes to the worst), with some of our fast-and-deadly offspring waiting in the wings to ambush the ambusher.
    >> MadSlug 11/13/09(Fri)23:59 No.6695425
    Flying or Arboreal webs in the trees will help us catch one and hopefully we can interrogate the bugger.

    If we coordinate well enough we SHOULD be able to create a netfall trap: Net spun from web, mechanisms crafted by those among us from with dextrous ability.

    An ambush with spawns may not work so well because this creature may be able to psychically detect our offspring (Alternatively it may actually be anti-psychic, capable of disrupting psychic communication and detection). We should place our bait spawn in the centre of a large and elaborate series of overlapping physical traps, with the trigger being extra weight underneath where the spawn is standing.

    Send out the bait, but before that, set up webbing in the treelines to capture them.

    And in regard to creating an effective flying force, we need to combine whatever flying DNA we have gathered with chitinous insects.

    They'll have flight capabilities, like Flyer had, but his main weakness was that he was soft. If we get some exoskeleton in there, it should prevent getting parasites.

    You send out the Shmecklings for hunting and they stride proudly out, searching for various animals, such as rabbits or maybe deer. They stride along for hours, creating many kills and taking them back. They're quite effective.

    Then, you see it. A shadow lurking amongs the branches. Leaping from one tree to the next. A Shmeckling falls back to sniff at the air, trying to trace a scent.

    The thing lands upon the Shmeckling, silencing it. Its insectoid bulk is easily your size, and it's shoving its oviposter deep into the creature's back.
