How come these things always look nightmarish and never cute?
>>36915349>implying the flysat ain't kawaii
>>36915389That don't look like pink fur and cat ears to me, dobe.
>>36915349>why don't these creatures from a deathworld look cute?Gee, I wonder.
Actually, hmm. Can someone get me the full image of that brown pholl? Or should I just outright redraw it?
>>36915444Fuck it, here. Lemme have a go.
>>36915409I think the Skynet could look pretty cute in the right context. I suppose that depends on if you like snake-falcons with four-part mouths.
>>36915566Fucking shit, that doesn't look very cute at all. Let's give it shorter limbs and make it furrier.
>>36915672aren't we in RAEG MODE at the moment?
So the cycle of ages was temperate, desert, super desert, ice age, super ice age, softening ice age, super ice age again. Right?Is it just me or does that look an awful lot like a planet being slingshotted out of its orbit by a travelling body with significant gravity? I think a wandering star went by the solar system and the goldilocks planet is now on a gradual horror-spiral that's going to make it a rogue world. Basically, everything is extra fucked. Soon the only source of heat and energy is going to be the very short term geothermal chaos.>>36915685We are. But this is fixable.Mud Pholl soon have heavy competition due to the dwindling survivable land mass they can habitate. Those with rounder, squatter forms are much harder to push and wrestle, and those with thicker tendrils can provide more punishment to invaders. Soon, the bulkiest mud pholl are the only mud pholl left.
>>36915693On the whole "table of misfortune", an event was rolled that states that all animals (and maybe even plants) are more aggressive and hostile.
>>36915693last thread everything went berserk, again, but why is everything except the skynet getting cuter
>>36915757Ah, I get it.Fuck, let's give it shorter limbs and fluffier and someshit.Fuck, everything I do to it is just making it less cute.Someone else give a try.
>>36915789Some Mud Pholl are born with deformations of their skullcaps. While they are less successful using this limb as a bludgeon, the deformations transmit vibrations to the flesh underneath, letting these mutants "feel" at range very particular kinds of sounds.
>>36915951Are you going for eyes?
A kinked protein starts producing hormone for the sun gromb that enhances the release efficiency of their characteristic light ability. Those that release more in tandem to the darkness of the surroundings survive much better in storms and thick cloud cover. The extra light sheds off extra heat, prickling at the skin of herbivores when their shadows loom.
>>36916003They don't have eyes.
>>36915951Over time the chitin around these deformations softens, and before long these pholl have developed rudimentary ears
Are snake fennets aquatic or terrestrial?
>>36916062Minor changes to stance, for more balanced movement.
In the New ice Age, the Ice breaker Fenishes Rule supreme, developing a body metabolism capable of withstanding sub zero temperatures in the water. They makes their homes , using their horns not just to impress females, but to also lay eggs in complex tunnel mazes within the ice few can find . They begin to change the color of the carapace to camouflage better in their icy enviroment
> http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/36874815/#p36880510> Common Name: Red-tailed Snake Fennet> Scientific Name: Fenneserpentis tuskeegee> Habitat: Oceanic> Diet: [unknown*]The snake fennet develops a detachable tail, like Earth skinks. If grabbed by a predator, it can simply pull off the red section of its body and escape. It also develops a second pair of fins, so that while this red tail is growing back, it will not be immobilized by the loss of the flukes on said tail.
>>36914923Don't forget thread 4. I messed up the tags on that one. You can find and upvote it here.> http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=JSEG
>>36916258As the snake fennet becomes more dependant on this tactic to fool and escape predators, those with brighter and more vibrant tails become the more successful examples of the species. As a result, brighter coloured and more decorative tails become common, as do duller coloured bodies.
>>36916126over time these 'ears' becomes more complex, allowing it to pick up a wider range of sounds,and its 'fur' becomes a lot darker(also how big is this thing in comparison to everything else?)
>>36916160God those things look fucking stupid
>>36917127What does this thing eat, and what eats it?
>>36917201They need to be redrawn, pronto.
>>36917221Herculean kerptaur would eat it. Snowball kerp and Dune kerp also.
>>36917239They were redrawnNot like it improved too much
>>36917255Alright, but what does it itself eat?
>>36916160some of these fenish develop a horn that curves forward, allowing them to drill spiraling tunnels through the ice, this process is slower but it aids the progress of the tunnel-nests these fenish make,plus it's a damn sight easier than just ramming holes in the ice
>>36917276Presuming it still has he poison mandibles, anything it can bite onto and infect.
>>36917267some things look stupid. Look at the platypus
>>36917370Hey, the Platypus looks awesome.
Some earpholls, isolated in the northern continent, instead slowly develop more rings and darker skin. The rings, variable in size and depth, allow a wider range of sounds to be interpreted. Rapid clicks of their mandibles let these Polar Earpholl both better keep warm and create their own sound waves for sensing their surroundings. These critters are highly territorial and will get into (sometimes lethal) wrestling contests in order to keep feeding grounds. Wrestling between sexes will end in coupling or banishment at about an even split.
>>36917127 Since they are evolved from a strain of eyepholl/Levipholl I would say around Kerpitaur and tall sat sized, so one of the biggest things around
>>36917567doubt that, these guys are the ones who lived in river systems for ages, they wern't that big
The highly successful pack hunters, yellow fennets, have slowly drifted to more specialized use of their striking limbs. The phalanges that used to hold their wing membranes have drifted and molded into manipulator pads with two proto-thumbs. When the pack is out hunting, these graspers will pin prey animals that have been pounced from ambush, while the rest of the group slaps, chokes, bludgeons and otherwise assaults the poor creature into death or unconsciousness. Playfighting among young of this species is consequently extremely dangerous. Those that create a warning signal of contact and submission -- signifying a play loss -- are much more likely to survive into adulthood. Variations of the mating call pushed to a higher pitched, halting trill proves most common.<evolved grasping "hands"><evolved laughter><evolved overkill>
>>36917649One branch of these fennet develops claws to RIP AND TEAR its prey apart, these claws grow out later
>>36917628It was never said they got any smaller, though. ______This particular breed of Pholl slowly mutates a much sleeker body plan for use in the water. Their feelers, whipping and free, are much more capable of sensing the oceanic environment and the fully protected pheromone organ is now one hydrodynamically sustainable lump. The quirk of these at the genetic level is inextricably tied with aggression instincts, however, and these new Caped Pholl prove to be universally and genocidally intolerant of any species that falls into their Uncanny Valley. Older breeds of this line are commonly decapitated and consumed by their progeny.
>>36917773meant to add that they grow as the fennet matures and continue to do so throughout its life with it regularly stropping away the outer layers like a cat.
>>36917127Some Earphols adapt to a even more predatory role.Their primitive "ears" improve, allowing them to detect and track sounds better, and their body becomes more compact, facilitating quick bursts of speed.This phol offshoot hunts by laying in wait, keenly listening to it's surroundings, and charging anything that sounds small enough to be suitable prey.Their bushy, and rough "fur" lets them hide among the undergrowth relatively well, though due to their own lack of sight, they aren't the best at picking hiding spots.
>>36918006Forgot one bit.Their leg tentacles have developed stronger muscles, as well as a primitive, cartilage like structure within them, which lets them support their weight better.
>>36918006Could you make something similar to this for the northern earphol as well?
>>36918006I would post a new picture but I really don't think there would be any visible change in the Earphol from this evolution.With their more advanced ears the Earphol is capable at hearing at a higher pitch than any other living creature on land. By chance, some Earphols develop vocal chords with the ability to produce noises at this frequency. This makes finding mates significantly easier, and because of this the mutation quickly spreads across the species.
>>36917562Polar Earpholls keep their age old shape, but their coloration adapts through outside pressures to a more muted tone, harder to discern against snowbanks. Head carapace recedes to allow the mandible more room for muscle, giving them a stronger bite force and more rapid echolocative clicking.
>>36918275Polar earpholls coloration become lighter aso as to blend in more(Could we get some cutaways of the earpholl head, just to see what it actually looks like on the inside)
>>36918124Ok.>>36918275Their fur eventually grows to almost cover them wholly.
>>36918392updated the color scheme to match >>36918365
>>36918392But the rings are forward-facing concentric circles. And they have a different body plan from the boar-like southern earpholls. That image doesn't make a lick of sense.
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CKg7H6g3sTO1yVji7iLDAcSfY5GRhlvSHfp5du9WHCs/mobilebasic Added ice cap size a while ago, figured we should roll for it
Damn this is getting cool.
>>36918486here's one that makes, somewhat more sense
>>36918569 I added drought conditions as well. Taking suggestions as always
So, are we completely abandoning the rule of 'don't over-evolve any single creature?'
>>36918594 No one person shall evolve a single creature more than thrice in one go. If Anons take a particular interest in one creature that's fine I suppose, they always hop to another animal in due time.
Rolled 3, 9 = 12 (2d10)>>36918593 So does rolling just not work for moble?
>>36918588I'm sorry dude, the whole "not the right body shape at all" is kind of a big deal. The face that they're divergent body plans by species at this point is a significant difference.
>>36918679Oh, i just reworked the face, forgot about the differing body plan, sorry
>>36918634NOW it works!>11-15= The ice caps are quite large, spanning over a little less than half of the ocean. Anyone have the world map?
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>369187092d10 is not even remotely the same thing as 1d20.
>>36918486It was not exactly clear that the rings were forward facing in the picture I based that on.
>>36918809Also, it has the same body plan, but with somewhat sturdier legs. It is just that the fur covers most of it's but etc.
Laugh at me and my poor editing skills
>>36918774Okay...>6-10= The ice caps are huge, covering over three quarters of the world’s oceansThis is more interesting anyway. Should I include ice cap depth? Should there be more events? Or is the Table of Misfortune complete and perfect?
>>36918836>no hunch for power sprints>no compactness for speed>no lifted leg>no leg bulk>mandibles face each other, for rapid clicking instead of downward for goring and catching prey>same body planYou are literally retarded. I'm so sorry, anon. I can't imagine how much your life will change from this moment.
>>36919008Except it has all of those things, with the exception of lifting it's leg. The critter is just pictured from the side, and not kind of from the front, like the other versions apparently were.
>>36918985THose on the right are MAMALS anon
>>36919068Like I said. You are literally retarded.
>>36919193Couldn't you have spent the time you spent making this gif on actually fixing any problems you see in the new art? Wouldn't that have been a little bit more productive than calling an anon retarded and giving me a headache with all the flashing images?
>>36918006>their body becomes more compact>>>36916126>changes to stance>>36918034>stronger muscles, with internal cartilageBut no. Definitely the same fucking body.What an idiot.
>>36919244There isn't a need. The "old" art represents what the creature is. The "new" art very wildly does not. There is no need to edit the new art. The old art still works.
>>36919193Except, those creatures are portrayed from different perspectives, so you little red lines don't give the accurate comparison.I won't bother with making an autistic little red line gif to indicate my point.What you assume to be a hunch, can just be a thick layer of fur.
>>36919458How convenient for you, to ignore the arrangement of the plates under that fur and the multiple posts about how the bodies were evolving differently. Effort is autism now? Just try reading the whole thread this time, mongoloid. An artist was called out for half-assing a drawing and reverting others' changes, completely contradictory to the nature of the game.
>>36919458How stupid do you have to be to think that perspective changes things like spine angles, leg shapes, and mandible rotation?
>>36919513>>36919522Here you nitpicky faggots, have the thing without fur.Also, from the original picture, it was not clear if the mandibles were facing completely against each other, or if they were slightly angled. I chose to draw them angled, because it looked better from the perspective I drew the critter.
>>36919635And it's still wrong. What is hard to understand about this? There was even a quote roadmap for you.>>36919269You didn't read the fucking thread. Polar earpholl and Southern earpholl have different senses, different survival strategies, different ecosystems, and DIFFERENT BODIES.
>>36917309Some fenish become more capable at "holding their breath". this proves beneficial when low tide comes or something drains out the water to the nest. the fins become more flexible as a result
Drawfag rude and entitled, rails against cooperative system. More news at 11.
>>36919662Naw, it is pretty much the same, just from the side, with a little shorter but, thicker legs and mandibles.The original has a strange perspective, where the face is facing the viewer, but the body is seen from the side.>>36919686I'm rude?People were flat out calling me retarded with no provocation at all.
>>36918440 Everyone stop being little fucks and evolve. This is why everyone left, Because of you fags. Anywaaayys The Polar Landpholl has much smaller "ears" now, but they have become much sharper. In their stead simple heat sensing pits.
A few, very small proto-kerp are sometimes eaten by much large animal, and are able to withstand the digestive fluid. as a result, they get a huge meal.
>>36919916This results in three paths. (Left) The leech. This path has the kerp making an incision somewhere in the host's digestive system, then anchoring itself their to feed off the blood (Mid) the TapeWorm. This kerp feeds of the host's prey. This is the most peaceful of them (Right) Nightmares. This kerp just eats the host to death, breeding more of the little demons while inside. This usually results in the host (most likely long dead) exploding from the amount of kerps inside, leaving a new generation of demons to terrorize the seas.
>>36920630Or it connects to the host's nervous system...
>>36918218Another, non visually distinguishable evolution.The mating calls of these Earphols (who are due a new name perhaps?) eventually adapted into a primitive echolocation, based on the high frequency shrieks they emit from their vocal chords.These shrieks are also used for primitive communication between these creatures, mostly related to territory disputes, scaring off other creatures, as well as it's original function, the mating call.Convergent evolution etc. The polar phols use clicks for echolocation, while these phols use shrieks.
You guys were dicks to FortuneHost, and now you're being dicks to Nad. You ask for drawings and then treat them like shit. You're an ungrateful lot, and you shame the good name of evo games. We never put up with this crap on Fortune, nor did Primordial. Shape up guys, or you'll soon dwindle to a tiny group.
>>36918006Some Earphol adapt to feeding on prey that dwell underground. Using their sensitive ears to pick out minute vibrations they tear through earth with their new longer, more tusk-like pincers and dig into burrows, happily feeding on the creatures living inside of them. Furthermore, calcified deposits along the ends of their front tentacles harden their front limbs and help them to dig even faster.
>>36922613Picture dun fucked up.
>>36914923Evolution continues on the mud plains.The Mudkerp has continued to tack on chunks of detritus and mud to it's body when venturing outside the mound. They will frequently grab larger sticks and rocks to build their mounds more sturdily. The "tusks" of the mudkerp have become more flexible, acting as crude manipulators and graspers.If attacked while hauling an object the mudkerps will often attempt to bat away their assailant with it. The mudkerps are weak however, and this is not a honed reflex, often they will meet their tiny little demise.The Nomad kerp has exhibited a small social evolution. They splatter themselves with colors, be it dung, blood, sap or dirt. The colors represent a group affiliation within the horde that lasts until rain washes them away, at which point the individuals cease to recognize their former comrades. On occasion the Nomads will chase a larger animal towards a mudkerp mound.
>>36917809>>36917809Now under a direct threat by its random unexplained coloration changing offshoot. The surviving earlier Pherapholl develop several tactics for evading and protecting themselves from the caped.Begining to travel in schools and packs for protection, Sexual Dimorphism develops between the two genders of the Pheropholl. Females become the detectors, with those develop additional 'whisker-like' pheromone sensors upon their head surviving and become useful at alerting the school to the precense of Caped pholl. These whiskers allow them to sense pheromones to a much more accurate degree, with their Vomeronasal organ growing slightly to accomidate the extra usage and information.The males become the fights and protectors, With their mandibles becoming stronger and more powerful. As a result the females mandibles become smaller, as they no longer use them for fighting.The females also use these whiskers to seek out other older pheropholls and grey pholls for greater protection in numbers. Though the Pherapholls appear to be more prone to be hunter by the caped pholls, thus making the number of Pheropholls in these schools and packs smaller.Due to the effects of the rage virus. These packs often become hunting parties and the female whiskerered pheropholls direct them towards any nearby potential threat, attacking them with sheer numbers and ensuring that they all eat well.
>>36919879>>36923352not a real evo, but I could not resist.
>>36923883In due time anon... just wait for sapience to evolve in most advanced creatures
>>36923928>>36923883anon here. this was a joke evo. I don't think this game has sentience in it.
>>36924221Not yet, but it /will/ happen eventually.
>>36919879 The Polar Phollhemoth, has now evolved even better senses, it's infrared pits now doubling as olfactory organs and its ears actually developing chambers. Sight still eludes it, but small photoreceptive spots, like those of primordial sats, have begun to appear on the sides of its head.
The Earphol grows a small range of spikes that join together into a small plate. This plate directs sound into the animal's ears, letting it hear smaller movements and distinguish the origins of different sounds.
>>36924580Why do we need to give them back eyes? That's so boring, I think it'd be much neater to continue to develop it as a ears-only creature. More creative that way.
>>36923883Yeah, the mud kerps are only about 4 inches tall...
>>36925435No I agree with you. I pit the light spots there as an option, I'd rather them hunt with infrared heat vision. If some one wants to give them eyes what ever.
>>36925710instead of eyes, lets explore distributed infrared sensing over the skin of the face.
>>36925830Or just leave them with sound, they dont even have a current need for more than ears, also should stop evolving your pet creature and do others
>>36926058Fack u. I've only done two. And for some reason there is an IP block on my computer, it's really wierd
>>36917267The Horned Fennish horn gains an edge and is more blade like, allowing for them to chop ice and slice through enemies and prey.
The snake fennet's that are able to escape once they lose their tail live much longer and as such, breed more. Their upper body changes even more to match the surroundings, leaving their red tail as a lure floating in the ocean.
>>36924789More fur and lighter coloration due to cold, snowy climates
>>36919879>gradualand >realisticYou drawfag felalting swine herder.>>36921048When someone tries to hijack something a group is doing in order to showboat, fuck that guy. We are better off without FortuneHost, he's a shit drawfag anyway. I'm as good as him and I'm fucking untrained garbage.And considering there is a literal waifu tit-fish, drawfags inciting drama from the secret chambers of an IRC, and whole lines being radically undone and redone in one post, this whole thing is in death throes anyway. A few anons keep trying to compare themselves to previous evo games, but those games had a lot more rigor and creativity than this one. When wild divergences get erased specifically to make them more similar like in >>36919879 (what kind of complete asshole changes everything about a critter to give it new senses, new gait, and reduce it's most unique feature to a footnote) or >>36917773 then it's truly gone to the pits.>>36926058This poster is exactly right. One, maybe at more three people are circlejerking around to add things that make no sense due to nothing more than a critical lack of creative ability. There is no environmental, social, or interspecies pressure for the polar earpholl to make massive changes to its sensory organs, develop multiple new ones, change their body plan, etc etc etc. It's out of nowhere at all. It breaks the flowchart of bare minimum competence. This >>36927169 is creative and competent. This >>36926341 is creative and sensible. This >>36927736 is pulled right out of someone's ass with the cultist chant of "wouldn't it be cool if."
>>36921048>ask for drawings>drawfag does a recolor that doesn't match the creature's evolution plan in the slightest>drawfag throws a tantrum when this is pointed outSuper ungrateful, yeah. We should just take whatever is defecated upon us like the good little piggies we are. Fuck yourself.
>>36918486True polar earpholl, who had no organs or structures that could conceivably turn into heat pits and being covered in material that would be extremely difficult to mutate into light sensitive patches, have a heavy evolutionary pressure for more specialized echolocation instead of a complete abandonment of its niche. Their low, linear bodies turn out to be great at galloping, hopping, and jogging through snow and over ice, and as generations pass their footpad tentacle tips become more bowed out, flattened, and cup-like in order to spread their weight more gracefully and more easily avoid sinking down through the cold surfaces.Their horizontal, pincer-like mandibles grow throughout their lives, and worn down in balance by the almost constant clicking of various speeds and volumes. Through the apparently miraculous migration of their southern cousins in the evolutionary tree, their hunting grounds grow smaller due to this encroachment of much larger and bulkier beasts. This brings polar earpholl into more conflict, more wrestling, and therefore more coupling even as the southern earpholl convergently mutate bushy white fur and over complex senses for echolocating among the windy flats.
>>36927929You know, I really didn't agree with you at first, thought you were just here to be an ass, and you are, You have fair and just points. But nobody appointed you sole defender of evo threads, and if they have, I would have hoped you planned to do it with less shit slinging. Maybe this game isn't being played the way you want it. But there's no reason to be so ass blasted, complain, but do so more mildly. I like all your contributions thus far, but you need to be more lax and stop acting like circlejerks aren't all these threads are for anyways.
>>36928262If you're going to let tone get in the way of content, or your assumptions about identities get in the way of a post, then you are never going to acclimate to 4chan.
>>36928295I already read your essay on that in the other thread, and I have to say, 4chan as a whole, your'e probably right. But there's no need to abandon the social expectations in a collaborative project.
>>36928295Yo man, chillax a bit. This is /tg/ after all, the side of 4chan that can at least hold civil discussions. The spiky tone your words are adorned with will aggravate others and lead to pointless arguing, yea? I know it's no hugbox, but please, be civil. Helps in the looong run.
Gooey and structurally primitive Sat-ellites blend their genetic lines until the point in which any breeding partner could end up with producing any kind of Phantom. The genes expressed are driven mostly by hormones leaked into surrounding waters, with the least populous Phantom types being expressed more commonly in the next generation.These massive colonies that result grow dangerously in computational ability. Hunting packs for Sat-ellites begin to use baiting tactics, pretending to be alone or injured, and leading those that take the bait into ambush zones where massive amounts of Phantom descend and dissolve their prey with the coordination afforded by the constant screams of the Sat-ellite core. This tactic proves particularly effective against schools, who are much more likely to take the opportunistic nature of the bait provided.The frozen over seas of INSERT PLANET NAME HERE are rapidly becoming a blood ocean.
>>36928364This is exactly what I mean, Anon. I did not write any such essay. I don't even know of the existence of such an essay and am currently trying to find it in the last thread. Assumptions about identities will always lead you astray. Concentrate only on what's been actually and openly posted, that's how you stay sane.
>>36928428It wasn't an actual essay mate, I was mocking your attempts to get us to see the light, and as far as identities, I assume it is the same person because I pray to god there aren't two assholes trying to stop us from having our badwrongfun ignorant of actual common sense and just trying to make cool critters to populate an imaginary world.
>>36928506Then you best begin praying, because I think you're a hypocritical shit for trying to facetiously call it badwrong fun when it's a small group flagrantly breaking and dismissing the game rules. This game fundamentally does not work if things aren't kept linear, gradual, realistic. So now who's shitflinging, miscreant?
>>36919764It cannot be the same. There are 3+ posts about the southern earpholl getting a different body. You can't sweep that under the rug to push your lazy art attempt. And no, I don't give a shit that it's 9 hours later.
>>36928552Entirely hypocritical, but damn, you're killing the mood. how do you know it's a small group, isn;t that opposed to the point you're trying to make? too hard to shut you up, and at least you're providing content, so I'm going to just leave you be instead of shitposting, got me rustled though. After you murder this game, you can start your own private one by yourself. Bet you're a demon when it comes to rules lawyering in your sunday night games.
>>36927929 I love how you praise my evo here >>36926341But denounce this one >>36926341Am I truly so inconsistent?
>>36928670>same evou wut m8
>>36928682Oh shit I meant this one >>36919879 Honestly I try to gradual and realistic, I really do. But some times you just have to say fuck it and have FUN.
>>36928393The phantom colonies share everything with each other in a sort of socialism. As their colonies grow larger and expand they begin to feel what some could call a sense of nationalistic pride in their territory, almost like their own country.They seem to show a profound dislike for the Sahutims.
>>36928754Bless you anon
Skynet, aided by their new pair of eyelids in their powerful dives at prey, dominate the skies. Their super-sensitive eyes in the deaf, anosmic predators work as well as ever in detecting the heat of life in the blanket of ice that sheathes the world. But Skynet still fear other, larger, older Skynet. And those that are able to trespass in hunting grounds by having the sleekest, toughest scales are able to use their aerodynamic bodies to leverage greater agility and live to eat another day. A careful balance of flexibility and simplicity is soon approached.>>36928632Yes sir, all that strawman and spite completely void of either argument or content is definitely not shitposting. You got me good, by golly.>>36928752Yes. You are very, very inconsistent then. You created complete and complex organs out of nothing in the biology and for nothing in the environment, and by doing so invalidated the content of several posts.

>>36928752>But some times you just have to say fuck it and have FUN.And sometimes that FUN causes a shitstorm. In a small group of friends, Rule of Cool rules. In an open game like this, adhering as closely to the guidelines as possible is preferred. Tread carefully, friend.captcha: Happy Holidays

>>36928894I think anon is pointing out that Sahutims are born and live in the air atop floating plant fortresses, and will only rarely and by accident enter the sea
>>36917649Instead of developing claws, this strain of yellow fennet leads to more developed and extended tentacle fingers between the proto-thumbs for better crawling along terrain low to the ground before pouncing, they have also seen a reduction in tail size to reduce weight for leaping but still allowing balance in their acrobatic murder-leaps.
>>36928847>They show a profound dislike for a species that they could never have any contact with? shirou.jpgYou do remember what the Sahutims look like right?
Didn't see size chart, so dropping it in. It's not updated though.
>>36928921Yes, but that is more than obvious, and it's clearly a joke, angryaboutfun anon knows that, right? please tell me he only seems like he has assburgers.
>>36928960what are you talking about anonThere are no jokes in evo threads .
The resilient, forest fire friendly breed of Bomb Gromb are not unaffected by the trend towards hostility. Those that fill their bladders to capacity, and those with the weakest stable membranes, are able to fling their extremely hard seeds much further than competitors. This also has the nasty side effect of flinging the bullets directly into (or possibly through) herbivores that set them off, or accidentally setting off too-close neighbors that likely have similar genetic lineage.>>36928894>>36928921>>36928949>s h i r o u . j p gJesus fucking christ, who are you people and how new could you possibly even be that you don't understand sarcasm? Where did you faggots come from? I'm not even going to touch not getting that reference. But the tone of that segment, fuck. How tragic (and sadly not in the least ironic) that I was accused of being assburgers because someone else can't follow social cues.
>>36928949This off-topic bullshit was much, much less common than the evo games you have repeatedly dragged into this game like mud onto a carpet. Maybe you should emulate them more instead of trying to rest on their laurels.
>>36929036>Not getting an obscure reference to a character in an anime on a board for traditional games. I'm sorry, please shoot me for trying to find an explanation for your butthole-ery.

You couldn't tell tone in a sentence and your explanation was convuluted neurological disorders instead of "hey maybe anon is also telling a joke." You are truly the dumbest human being I have had contact with in weeks.
Kerp chart, also likely a bit outdated.Just bringing them over to the new thread.
>>36929208Not the guy you're replying to.I didn't even know you were referencing something, I looked up Shirou, and have to say, that's pretty obscure.

>>36927957As I pointed out here, the body plan is pretty much the same, just seen from the side, and not quasi front like in the original drawing.>>36928586I based it on >>36917562 after I was asked to do a redraw of the polar phol.Again, I drew it from it's side. And unlike what you people are implying, it isn't a recolor of the earlier phol I drew.
>>36929273It exactly is. You're so full of shit right now. You're defending your mistake because you're butthurt but you could have just said "my bad everyone" and that would be that. No one would give a shit. Not even me. But you keep lying and conniving and bitching and what is even the fucking point of that?
>>36929323Except it isn't. I started a new drawing for it, but keep believing what you want to believe. I won't bother trying to convince you further.
>>36929358Great. Now you can stop shitposting to defend your pride. You fucked up your drawing that you spent a lot of time on. No biggie. Now don't derail the thread with it anymore.
>>36929369Not defending any pride here m8.Just telling how things are.>>36924741The mandibles and claws of the digging earphols develop further, as they adapt to their niche. Their back feet also develop similar claws as their front feet, in order to give the creature more solid grip on the soil, as they dig.Their tusk like mandibles are also apt at mauling prey in addition to just digging, making these creatures capable of bringing down prey above the ground too. Their clawed feet gives them a firmer foothold as they run, which in turn, making them better runners too. All in all, these critters are dangerous to both beings above, and under the ground.
Phollerps get a total relining as the guy who redrew them cannot into anti-aliasing
Okay, I am one of the chart fags, and as soon as I get the time, I plan on going back through and putting a number under each critter to signify which thread the evo comes from, that way some of the tail ends of lines that don't get evolved will be easier to evolve without having to archive dive. So for any of the other chart fags, I was hoping you could do the same.
>>36925496so if mud kerps are 4" tall... how big is everything else?

Please stop doing this, it would benefit all our experiences. I don't mind that you evolve a buttload of stuff, but don't keep evolving the same creature. Also, you guys made new thread again before updated charts were finished. This way the game will come to an end, as only a few creatures will get evolved, some of them will be forgotten and new players will have a hard time joining in.
>>36930578calm ya tits mate
>>36930826Early in the game, we agreed that when people were solo-evolving, we would call them out on it so that the game stays enjoyable. Seeing the list of posts that have gone by, you can't disagree that it was high time to call the Pholl-train to a stop. And this game is also a group effort, if you only create evolutions, while leaving the hard stuff like making the evolution charts and size charts to other people, this game will die. My tits are calm, I just wan't you to think about all players and not just yourselves. It has been going smoothly for a week now, don't ruin it.
>>36930006That is a really good idea. To save you some time, maybe just find the first in a line for each thread.1---------2-----3---4---6 no updates in thread 5We may be at a point where there's too much to work on a global scale any more. Might it be a good idea to focus on single regions for future threads?
>>36930988That's how primordial did it, It should work for this one as well, does any one have a map of the planet (still need a name for the planet itself) ?
>>36931051There was a map a couple of threads ago. And the unofficial name is Grombworld.
Okay so the general consensus would be that charts get done before a new thread is posted. And that we need to rework the charts and focus in on the world. Is there any sort of separate chatroom for us to work from and get organized in the meantime?
>>36931091Yeah. I have it.>>36931051Fortune Evo did it as well, but a bit better.Bringing those two up, I feel the need to mention that both in terms of time and thread count, this is already the 3th longest running evogame behind those two. Unless you count those run by From Aether as the same, since they all take place on same post-apocalyptic world and its moon.
>>36931224so we have 8 viable continents, the open ocean and the abyss, as well as lots of smaller islands.
>>36931125>>36931224Great, if we can focus our actions a bit on keeping the game alive and kicking, we can make this a memorable evothread. That being said, I can't help out a lot myself since I should be doing a lot of work (hypocrite, yes.) But I'll try to chip in where I can, perhaps with redrawing and reworking some older evo's so that they'll fit in the world. Or recapping information about the behavior of creatures.
>>36931253Previously stated, most creatures evolved on the largest continent, but some kind of mole-sats live up north. But feel free to change it up a bit. I also wanted to do a chart to determine the food source and hunting grounds of different creatures, but that will take even more effort.
>>36931282Don't Polar earpholls live on the northern island?
>>36930826>a practice kills the game>game starts picking up steam again>people do it again, game imidiately dies down againWHY ARE PEOPLE UPSET THOUGH?
>>36931613haven't the foggiest.
>>36931598could be, I've been out of touch a lot. And it's hard to get back in touch when people don't make charts before making a new thread. Yet another reason for us to get our shit straight.
>>36931253>>36931282Whipped this up to show the movement of the continents. Forgot to save the layers positions after the first shift, so the second is pretty messed up.
>>36931598The massive icecaps could have allowed for things to spread globally. Are we back in a super ice age? If yes, that will make things easy.
>>36931681nice job mate
Is anyone in favor of a new event being rolled to kickstart the new thread?
>>36929526the muscle density of the boarpholls legs increases
so everyone left, aw shit, .gif very related
I told you that pointless bitching would kill games like this.I told you bro.I told you about the bitching.
>>36932685right who's gonna start a new thread?
>>36929295as the micra Kerps expand their hives, and their enemies adept, mimicry becomes less and less effective - The females pseudo-plant apendages gain muscles and are repurposed into (still poisonous) grabbing tentacles, which they no longer show in plain sight, but instead hide near water holes and similar areas where their prey would gather, and hold them down, paralyzing them and sucking them out as usual.The gene that alters the females tentacles, also gives the guards an asymetrically big right claw - they can use them as shoving instruments or shields in conflicts with other hives
>>36932685the problem isn't the bitching, it's monoculture. we need to give more avenues for incidental evolvers.
>>36929295I cant find a big picture of those fat Kerps in any of the old threads - can someone help me out?
>>36932762in female Micra kerps their grasping claws become longer and their tendrils develop a bifurcation at the end, whilst males develop a larger shield claw and a spike on the opposite
>>36932770Actually, main source of bitching in this thread was the artThe land pholl got a good few evos in before anyone really cared
>>36915016toenail sats with headgear develop a new eyespot, now that they lost their old one
>>36932838>mfw I complain about lack of diversity and then develop the evolution of my evolution right away againThe guard claws change shape over time
>>36929295Went back and added several that were missed and also included >>36932838 and >>36932762
>>36932937All that and I clicked wrong file. Oh well, just edited to include >>36932936also
>>36932937I think you posted the wrong chart. the ones you said you included arent included.
>>36932955You are correct sir. See >>36932954
>>36932954I think the new Kreps are an evolution of the species just before the one with the giant green thing.
>>36932962Doesn't really matter. The post said that the female mimicry of plants was no longer working that kind of implies that its the big one.
>>36932994they are the ones with big hives, but there still might be the other one. Diverging species are important
>>36932954you may need to edit this>>36929625into the chart.
The Herculean Kerptaur continued to grow in size and ferocity through the rage period and began hunting down nests of the flying fennets. It's singular eye's pupil which improved to better identify threatening packs of fennets from passing floating grombs becomes easy to distinguish and plays a crucial role in it's new hunting methodologies.Also of note is the development of a fourth digit on each hand. This opposing digit allows the Kerptaur to grip onto things better, when climbing to attempt to find fennet nests to destroy.
>>36932954oh by the way: Thank you based chart fag
>>36932770>we need to give more avenues for incidental evolvers.What we need are all the charts then.Grombs haven't had a chart in ages, and most evos have gone towards the bombgromb
>>36932936>>36932962>>36932994>>36933023>Get's an apendage that can change shape and spreads pheromones in order to blend in with plantlife>Devolve it to a simple tentacle. What are you doing to our Micra Kerp? This was the one Kerp that wasn't purely muscle.
>>36933312>what are you doing to our micrakerpnothing, your micrakerp is still there. there just is a new strain, since mimicry is a dead end evolution, if you become too succesful, your enemies wise up on it.The tentacle is still toxic, and he still strikes from the shadows, he just isn't reliant on stupid enemies anymore.and again, your micra kerp is still alive and well.
>>36933362you should evolve it, too
Due to the continued cold temperatures and flourishing environments of the snowball kerp. Many have grown much larger, hunting and preying on the various larger animals that step on them whilst buried. Some mudkerp have taken the opportunity to build their mud homes atop the snowball kerp as a defense mechanism. Not only does the snowball kerp keep them moving and away from nomad kerp. It also eats any aggressive nomad mudkerp that do find them whilst in its buried ball form.The snowball kerp have found that having the mudkerp's home upon it's back results in more prey approaching it whilst buried and tend to allow the hives to stay on their backs.
>>36933505okay, so snowball kerps are about the size of a limo? Based on the size of the mudkerps(about 4 inches) and their nests, the snowball should be very large. This of course means that their predators are huge. Maybe there is less gravity on our deathworld?
>>36933505(sure how this can be represented)the mudpile kerp develop a bigger more resilient city on the snowball kerps back
>>36933876>>36933505This is hugely non-canonical. It conflicts in a big way with every single size chart done. Besides... >gradual and realisticand the theme of the environment right now is crazed hostility. It's not the right pressure to evolve mutualism. Rule of cool is always inferior to the actual rules of the game.>>36930578That rule is against making pet critters. There are at least five people focusing in on the earpholls. It's legit. The same thing has happened to flying fennets and air grombs before.>>36933362>mimicry is a dead end evolution>the fifth most common evolutionary strategy on Earth, only after things like "sexual reproduction" and "immune response"
>>36934021My apologies. I was under the impression that mudkerp were only around one inch.
Would now be a good time to roll for a new event?
>>36934061No.Go back and evolve some other species that havent been touched in a while
>>36934061There are a lot of creatures that haven't been changed in the latest event. Its kind of early to be thinking about another event roll.The end of the tree creatures should at least get one a piece.
>>36934070I want to, but I can't think of any evos for the life of me. Well, there's always more muscles and bigger weapons, but come on, where's the fun in that?
>>36934086Think about what double ice age means for each creature.What their new threats are (even beyond the environment only) and what their opportunities are.Then think about what mutation would have given them enough of an edge to survive it/ take the best advantage of it.Until consciousness is developed thats generally the path for evos I think.
>>36934086Cant think of any evolutions?Take an old evo and think of way that the current weather (VERY COLD) and the increased hostility could change it.Or just move some body parts around slightly.Everythings supposed to be gradual.
>>36931681You didn't actually draw plates under the world and bother moving them in the same direction constantly. Did you? This looks random as fuck.>>36932770Keep in mind that when something fills it's niche perfectly >it does not need to evolve<. There is absolutely no mechanism or reason to. Things like sharks and leeches and kelp haven't changed much for millions upon millions of years, through countless ages, because they accidentally hit on a really good solution. Most species of ant are extremely similar as well, for example. Diversity for diversity's sake results in unnatural and boring bullshit. To get to really wacky and meaningful results, you follow the environments. You evolve only when there is pressure to, from things you've already got. The problem with these threads is all rooted in the same cause. It's people not thinking through what they're doing.>dragging monsters and jokes from old threads into this onePeople not thinking what they're doing. Not taking the two seconds to realize how that kills creativity here and biases changes towards what's already been done. Leaning on things outside of the game causes derivatives, even if it's just joke images. The game having it's own gag pics is better than constantly reposting things for last year or whatever. >rule of cool or gag evolution for its own sakePeople not thinking through what they're doing. Tits on fish, complex structures from nowhere, hijacking lines. Turning a community game into a personal farce undermines the whole concept and drastically lowers verisimilitude.>taking things offsite and creating cliquesPeople not thinking through what they're doing. The death of literally every group endeavour in 4chan's history is trying to take it off of 4chan. The community becomes a fraction of the size and defaults to echo chamber behavior, with all of the same identity politics that plague forums but are missing here. It kills enthuasiasm and stops the flow of content and new idea.
>>36934021>>mimicry is a dead end evolution>>the fifth most common evolutionary strategy on Earth, only after things like "sexual reproduction" and "immune response"not as a hunting strategy it bloody well isn'tAnd the micra kerp still exist dammit
>>36934099Consciousness as an end goal is absolutely stupid. The only reason humans are as adaptive as they are is because they were already upright, which takes a lot of brain power, plagued with many predators, which takes a lot of brainpower, had mitten-like manipulators, which takes a lot of brainpower, and were omnivorous, which lends a lot of growth to high energy structures like the brain. Add in the fact that the weather and environment were rapidly and constantly changing through extremes, and evolutionary pressure stops being on pure instinct and emotional response as in with everything else in the world but in pattern recognition and adaptive re-analysis in this one lightning-strikes species. Most things are going to overspecialize. Bizarrely powerful venoms, extreme dependence on a mobility feature, convoluted reproductive cycle. That kind of thing. Sapience isn't an end goal. It's a fluke. It's what happens when a very small and brain-heavy group is put into a situation that is remarkably unstable.
>>36934137http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aggressive_mimicryhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimicry#ParasitesWhoops turns out you're completely wrong.
>>36934145Tool users can arise, as can social transmission, without sapience or technological adaptability. There are many tool using birds, even remarkably clever ones like crows. Colony insects and primates show societies without showing self-reflective tendencies. Most planets probably wouldn't have a sapient species for any significant amount of time for a great many reasons, regardless.
>>36934169good job, you have proven to me that there is, in fact, mimicry. well done. maybe you should evolve the micra kerp? Because as it is, it's most developed strain doesn't use mimicry.
>>36934086Any sea creature save bottom feeders, for example, could use increased predetation from phantoms as a pressure method.For example a creature could develop a method to hide from vibration pings from Satillites or just leave less of a movement footprint. I was thinking of using this somewhere but I don't have a lot of time to draw.Or perhaps take advantage of there being large blocks of ice around to develop a new habit like the Ice FensFlying creatures are going to have a lot of issues with keeping warm in general, perhaps they also have problems finding new prey since everything is dying out. More muscles bigger weapons only really works out when the creature and it's threat are close to each other in skill and strength anyway.>>36934145I wasn't trying to say that consciousness is an end goal (though it is where evo games normally phase into the next stage), I was just trying to say that until consciousness exists, evolutionary developments are going to be a result of pressure/opportunity providing a method for a mutation better suited to handle the situation rising to prominenceA creature develops powerful venom -> the ones that can either avoid it, defeat it without taking critical damage, develop a resistance, become unattractive to attack, etc, are the ones that survive long enough to breed and that line continues. Ones that did not develop a way to lessen the impact die out or simply become lesser. At least, thats the way I always understood it.
>>36934225How nice! You announced it as the most developed strain simply because you reduced it's unique features to cookie cutter bullshit and moved around your goalposts so you wouldn't lose a petty argument. You must be real proud of yourself. It's easy to be proud when you have no self-awareness at all.
>>36934227Just because someone has done something before does not at all mean it must be done in the future. If other evo games did sapience for it's own sake, that is their mistake and there is no reason to repeat it.
Y'all should bitch less and evo more.An Earlier Fennet offshoot (Original on the left) slowly loses its higher fin as it makes its way landbound as it is no longer needed.
>>36934270okay, first of all, you are way too mad.second of all, I didn't move the goal post, nothing in there says it's among the most common traits, but let's let that go.third of all: I meant the last development, sorry to have offended you to an apperently extreme extentand lastly: Holy shit you are mad, calm down and evolve a strain. I genuinely feel bad for making you this mad.
>>36934225>>36934270Ok, folks, I was only pointing out that the loss of the apendages seems like a devolution. Now stop being at eachothers throats and let's just evolve the shit out of both sides. Let's say that the True Micra Kerp lives in southern regions and the Grabber Micra Kerp up north or something. Does that work for you? It's a fucking game, sheesh, have some fun while you're at it.
>>36934307Hahaha! Let me clue you in on a little secret. If someone is mad, it means nothing to their argument or content. And being mad is not a prerequisite to calling someone out. I hope you remember these facts in the future so you stop embarrassing yourself in such a simple, childish way. Hyperbolic language like "extreme extent" just reflects badly on you, gentle newfag. Your claim was that mimicry was a dead end. That it does not persist. That was proven false, so you narrowed the claim to that it's a dead end or not done in predation. That was further proven false, as it is fairly common practice among predators and prey alike. So your new claim was that it wasn't even the nature of the argument. Your goalposts have loose wheels in a stiff breeze.Me criticizing poor behavior in the game does not stop me from also playing it. Most of the ones in this thread are my changes, even. More fallacious garbage from a mental incompetent.
>>36934301The landbound fennet uses the remnants of its fins to slide around, but finds that often upon the slippery ice surface covering much of the land it does not provide the necessary grip or range of movement, They slowly develop back legs over the course of generations as the fins continue to shrink.Pretty big leap here, but I'll hope you'll all allow it as it's part whats distinguishing this line from the other landbound fennets. Rule of 2 per line in a row per person means I stop here. I'd appreciate if someone else could take over. :)
>>36934352I am sorry man. I didn't mean to make your angryness an attack on your argument. I am sorry I offended you by making a new evolution. I am sorry I am acting more civil than you'd be on /b/.I am really sorry man.The micra Kerp female develops hind legs more suited to jump at their prey
>>36934333in order to withstand the toxins of the micra kerp the skin on the northern earpholls legs becomes tougher and thicker
>>36934281I'm not sure what you're getting at here anon. I never said we should be aiming for sapience or that it should be developed.I never said that this game should follow what happened in others. I just pointed out that X is generally the method unless Y happens. Following that because Y happens X would no longer be the method. In this case, sapience would change the method of advancement for a strain because they could now decide how to improve(using tech etc) where those without are still chained to happenstance.
>>36934352wow, you need to calm down
>>36934362>structures out of nowhereStop.jackblackThe landbound fennet uses the remnants of its fins to slide around, and those with the best range of motion are slightly less often the prey of the much larger and more suitably adapted land animals. Their powerful rear fins are adapted best when their bristles grip at the ice and trash the creature forward.>>36934395It's sad that you think this is an improvement.
>>36934352Whoa, you must have the beardiest of necks. Seriously, it's a game. I only said that the tentacle seemed like an illogical change. Why the hell do you feel the need to act superior? If you can't play with others why do you play at all? Do you really have to push our bump limit to 300 by bitching? The guy said he was sorry, let it go. >Most of the ones in this thread are my changesMost of the ones in this thread are kinda crap in my opinion. Not that I feel the need to call you out on it because you can just play the game however you like as long as you don't break it. Sheesh, you must have a lot of friends. >>36934395You evolve bro, you evolve our beloved Micra Kerp and be proud of it.
>>36934362The Land Fennet has a rather hard time finding food in the harsh frozen climate of the area where it made landfall. The few plants that are around are frozen solid and difficult for the fennet to eat. To counter this, it's mouth hardens and forms into a sharp rudimentary beak shape, able to bite into and eat the frozen vegetation.
>>36934541Over time, these bristles tend towards a second pair of false proto-legs, and thicken along the tail.>there, legs from something jfc

>>36934607Which is the kind of potential you get when you don't just jam in whatever you wanted wherever you wanted.
>>36934593>a bloo bloo bloo someone was mean to me on the internetSomeone was mean to someone else while I am aiming for an enjoyable game and thus he's ruining it for everybody. >they're a friendless, obsessed failure because that is the only way I can protect my fragile egoHe's probably friendless, because if that's how he acts in real life, not a lot of people would want to be friends with him.>better not change how I behave or look at myself with any consistencyWhy the fuck won't this guy chill down and change how he behaves or looks at himself with any consistency?
>>36934593you werent mean to that guy, you realize that, right? That's a different guy.You are just not acting in the tone of the thread.evolve stuff, man.
>>36934655Once again. I have been evolving things. Pointing out that you're being an illogical toad does not stop me from playing the game.>>36934646I'd say I've been very consistent if you can pick me out so well. My behavior is conducive to my goals, so it would be maladaptive to change it.
>>36934701>Once again. I have been evolving things. Pointing out that you're being an illogical toad does not stop me from playing the game.evolve things now.You love misunderstanding things.
>>36934701>>36934709but don't worry, I'll go to bed anyways.
>>36934701I'm going to stop posting now, I'm getting a bit too fed up with this. I just wish you could at least try to see how you look from other peoples perspective. Not because the people you disagree with are trying to belittle you, but because I think it's healthy to put you in other peoples shoes every once in a while. And based on how you're behaving here, I think it is high time for you.
>>36934736Irony: the post.
>>36934307>second of all, I didn't move the goal post, nothing in there says it's among the most common traits, but let's let that go.>5th most common traitAnyhow, more primitive Eyepholls have left the seaphomb forests to escape conflicts with rivals and to find richer feeding grounds. This population eventually develops a coloration that allows it to pass for harmless chunks of ice.
Lmao, we're almost near post limit because of assholes. It's amazing. Can we have the Gromb chart, I would like to evolve some of them.
As the tail-legs become more hefty and defined, a beak hook spreads throughout the land fennet population due to its proven usefulness in digging through the frozen surface of plants.
>>36934852There is no post limit, you hopeless newfag. And a thread on /tg/ can survive for a day or more beyond the bump limit. Don't make a new one until we're on page 10, please.
>>36934921Bump limit. Excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuussssssssssssse me you violent shitposter.
>>36935046Very well. You are excused.
>>36935046>>36935054*pulls out two haddock and hits the anon's with them*quit it you two
bump because no one else will
>>36935559THATIS NOTHOWTHIS WORKS
>>36935597DON'T MAKE ME GET OUT THE TURBOT!
>>36935616FUCK YOU. BUMP IS FOR FAST BOARDS THAT HAVE NO CONTENT. IF YOU WANT THE THREAD TO LIVE THEN POST STUFF THAT MATTERS. A BUMP POST IS A SHIT POST BY A SHIT PERSON.
>>36934395the micra kerp guards develop barbs along the front of the stabbing arm and their horns lose their green coloration
>>36935821well that 'guard' looks like he's going the route of 'soldier'. Looks pretty baller. by the by, should we call the female hunter? Just to illustrate the roles.
>>36935865It's your idea, go for it.
>>36935821So... why is the guard evolving?
>>36935645>>36935597>>36934921>>36934757>>36934701>>36934593>>36934352>>36934270Thread got raped by this guy.Butthurt fag pls go. Nobody likes you.
>>36923352the the mudpile kerps armor takes on a concrete-like consistency to match their environment, meanwhile the nomad kerps start coating their mandibles in their own saliva which dries to form a waterproof resin (Not sure where this is gonna go, but I might as well hang on.)
>>36936201Not a clue, someone gave it a shield and I just ran with it
>>36936294well that first guy just said it's a joint mutation. You should give reasons for evolutions.>>36936221yeah, he seems not to have much experience with people
>>36936280Mud pile kerps use actual mud, so that can't change coloration
>>36936364they've started to add clay to it then, how's that?
>>36936458Might just be better for that to say the color varies depending on location.Also, what is going in with captcha?
>>36936513Because it blocked the Browse button.
>>36936338>>36936221Please return to whatever hugbox you crawled out of. Maybe this kind of thing works there, where people care about their reputation and identity, but it's not going to work on this website.>I'm not new, I've been here for months!Calling it now.
>>36934112Your nitpicky rules laywering is also completely unhelpful, and by constantly bitching about things you personally consider to be bad or wrong, you make the whole atmosphere of the unwelcoming to players.
>>36936645> it's not going to work on this website.It has been working like this for a week now.
>>36936755>personally consider to be bad or wrong, you make the whole atmosphere of the unwelcoming to players.exactly that. Which is why we should include evos in our bickering.>>36934909land fennets develop a membrane on their eyes to keep them from freezing up
>>36936645>LEterally never been on /tg/
>>36936645>>36934112fuck off m8. the only guy shitting up the thread is you.stop fucking complaining and leave if you don't fucking like it you big baby.if the game pisses you off so much, make your ownor better yet, SHUT UP AND MAKE SOME EVOS
>>36937016but dont you know anon? He made most of the evos in this thread! Until he just stopped. because he totally did before.
>>36936645It's clear that you never partook in Evo threads before, because none of them were filled with this sort of inane bickering, and if people had something they took issue with, they discussed it with civility, instead of screaming "badwrongfun!" and calling other players names.I don't care from what /v/ tier shithole you crawled from, but evo games have never been as hostile as this one has been, and I am rather certain that that is mostly the case of you being present here.
>>36920717YOU can do that anon!hope it does ok!
Polar earpholl, with their much more common wrestling, evolve directly to compensate for it. Males develop thicker, larger manes to intimidate rivals and protect their throats during battle. Females in general get larger than the males, to better control when they mate and with what partners. And both edge towards a rotated pelvis, the better to batter an opponent with the legs, protect their reproductive abilities in combat, and bound through the snowy plains.It is now common for polar earpholls to pin each other down by the limb with their pincers and rake the back legs against the underbelly until submission is achieved.>>36937208This evo thread has been a whole lot worse than ones in the past in regards to playing by the rules, being self-contained, and fostering a spirit of cooperation and community. If any hostility occurs, it's wholly in response to poor player behavior and clique formation. But I'm sure you'll play the same old /v//b//pol/ card and invent a boogieman conspiracy of one in order to avoid looking at yourself and how you are effecting the situation. I am perfectly cognizant of my hostility, and of my continued contribution to the thread's on topic direction. Are you as aware of how you are fettering the game's tone with overly exclusive behavior and constant reference to things outside of the game? I would not say so. If you were, you could stop doing so, and improve these threads dramatically.>>36937222And you need to learn how to fucking type, dude. You look like someone's Facebook grandma. It's embarrassing. Making a token effort in how you communicate in a post has been in the rules (two separate entries) for years and part of the community for longer. Like I and others have harped on, get some self-awareness. Look around you and look at how you're fitting into the flow of things.
>>36936755Way to not answer any of the argument, fucko. You have some more buzzwords you want to vomit on us?
>>36937334I was trying to be nice.asshole.
>>36937433I mean in general. It's pretty obvious when it's you posting because you seem to have this allergy to full sentences and capital letters.
>>36937481still ruining the thread. Still need to leave.
>>36937723Cry more. Maybe the tide will carry me out.

>>36937930An entirely greentext post where the only original content is putting your words into someone else's mouth. Yes, that is definitely /tg/'s style and not one of the overpopulated boards frequently assaulted by the mainstream internet.
>>36937956oh my god man, you have to be the funniest dude on this board.
>>36937981I do try, grammy.
And so ends another game of Evo, not with pride, but with pettiness....ah, well, that just means I'll get the chance to play in one from the beginning sooner.
Do we have updated charts? I get confused far too easily in these threads...
>>36938116Good.Clean start.Hope That Guy doesn't show up.
>>36937334None of the earlier evo games had problems like this, precisely because instead of having a self appointed rules lawyer constantly instigating arguments with other players, and attacking them and their creations, and pushing away other players, in earlier evo games, people acted civil, co-operated, and fostered a sense of jovial community, whose first and foremost goal was to have creative fun.None of the earlier games had any problems with references to other evo games (because back then, it was an evo game community, composed of numerous evo games and their players), or joke evolutions, as the community wasn't composed of autistic spergs like you.In fact, reading the earlier threads of this evo game, nobody seemed to mind the references and jokes until the last last few threads, where some fucktard started bitching about them. These threads have gone downhill ever since.>>36937361 Those arguments basically boil down to opinions and clear lack of inexperience with evo games.None of the supposed problems presented in that post, were problems in other evo games in the past, and none of them need to be problems here either, unless they are made into them.People just need to realize that these sort of games are for fun, not for pointless, creativity killing internet arguments that accomplish nothing else but killing this damn game.In any case, I'd love to contribute more to this thread right now, but real life has kept me busy this day, and now it is my time to go to sleep.
>>36938284THIS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD THIS
>>36938244that guy just got here and took everything to hell. He will be on the lookout for the next thread...I'm of to test a IRL version on new years eve, see how that goes. I'll let you guys know how it went, since someone asked me to a couple of threads ago.
Should I just make a new one? Or try and further grombworld?
>>36940303Whatever manDo what you want I will meet up with you if you post the link
