Salutations fellow creators and questers. We will be picking up where left off on our EvoGame series, this time visiting the sister world of Janus, Moon World Rienia. The goal of this game/quest series is to see how far the evolution of these critters go, and to make a thriving ecosystem of creatures and aberrations.As GM, I'll do my best to actively work on phylogeny charts to track the evolutions, and also make random events for the world to drive evolution down new paths. Since I've done this a few times now, and taken the time to observe/lurk on other EvoGames, I've picked up a few new tricks to keep everything organized and streamline too.How to play:• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species• Save as .PNG!• Post your new species in the thread with a description of what evolution you've added and why.• Details indicating what the generation of your species is important. Please indicate. (Base Organisms are Generation 0)• Details regarding a creatures size or name are encouraged, but not required.• Nothing too outlandish. Anything silly or derailing will not be considered a canon species 95% of the time.Notes:• Unless stated explicitly, no species ever goes extinct. Old species can still evolve, even if they're not on the latest "chain"• Try to make your evolutions gradual and realistic in biological standards.• Everyday I'll add an update Phylogeny Chart to track changes. These take awhile, so please be patient.• Every 1-2 days I'll be rolling for a Random World Event.• Extinction Events will have a chance of occurring once more, and likely with little warning. Be ready for life to adapt.• When this thread reaches its endpoint, we will be switching back over to other Moon World Janus.• Have funNew to the Game?:• Don't be shy. If you have an idea for an organisms and want to spend the time making it, please by all means do so. • We also have a Discord to keep you up to date on EvoGame stuff, and chat with other folks. https://discord.gg/kk8eJgJ• There will be an Imgur Gallery for this thread made in the near future.• There will be a Blank Template that you can use to make any organisms you wish to make for this game.• Just a note, while it doesn't matter how intertwined your organism is with the rest of ecosystem, the more dependent it is on the existence of other creatures, the more potential your organism has to survive.The Description of Moon World Rienia, Setting, and more will be posted in supplementary posts.Previous Thread: Moon World Janus >>911768
The Setting:As the building blocks for life on Janus begin to take hold into variety of shapes and forms, life on Janus' sister world, Rienia has also begun to stabilize for life to start growing. Janus and Rienia revolve around the gaseous world Seostea in a Co-orbital path. Every 5-6 years, Janus and Reinia race towards one another until they are both in a Moonshot of one another before continuing on their orbital paths.Focusing on our world Rienia, we find a planet around 2/3s the size of Janus and a 25% higher gravity than Janus, with a greater amount of landmass scorched by heat and volcanic activity. Towards the coasts and current driven oceans, it is here where the Biosphere of Rienia has started. Life finds itself surrounded by harsh and strange circumstances though, as crystalline spires cover the seafloor, and traces of poisonous selenium and arsenic present in deeper waters. Life finds safety near exclusively in the continental shelf.--Planet Statistics--Atmosphere: 78% Nitrogen, 9% Oxygen, 5% Sulfur Oxide, 4% Helium, 2% Carbon Dioxide, 2% Other GasesAverage Global Temperature: 76°F (24°C)Tectonics: Present; InactiveVolcanic Activity: FrequentWeather Systems: Turbulent Storm Systems--Organism Advancement--> Organisms may be as large as the size 4 increment as state below.> Organisms currently locked to the oceans of Reinia.

Bryum Base Organisms
Hawa Base Organism
>>952839Some hawa develop photosensitive spots on their heads. As this happens, the pigment around these spots turns blue.
Meli Base Organisms
Troc Base Organisms
And last but not least, here is the Blank Template for putting your organisms on.Have fun creators.
The Troco improves itself with larger fins for greater maneuverability and bursts of speed.
didn't see the template sorry
>>952894No problemo muh boi. Just providing an easy to use template.
The Hawa begin absorbing calcium. The calcium all goes to their tail-back-thing in a small spike.This spike has no use besides make them a tiny big slower.
>>952927Forgot to add.They're now called Hawa-pokie
>>952854The Hawa develop whiskers that can detect disturbances in the surrounding water protecting it from its predators and getting a jump on its prey.
>>952891The troco's fins get a more aerodynamic shape for even moar speeeeeeeed
>>952858Some other Troc develop tentacles underneath their eyespots, allowing for a greater field of view.This line of Troc is called Troca.
I'd just like to say thanks op. I don't like most of the quest on /qst/ but I love evos. This is the first quest i've played after I left and came back to /qst/
>>952971not op, but they are fun, aren't they?
>>952849Some Bryum, as they mass together start creating structures that are stuck to the ground. These structures are called Bryum Colonies, and consist of many hundreds of individual Bryum organisms.
>>952849Slowly, some Bryum masses that hurdles together slowly grab into each other to perform hand in hand, becoming bigger
>>952962The Hawa's whiskers become barbed allowing for great sensitivity and can harm predators.
>>952854Other Hawa instead go down the route of trying to out-speed their predators, developing front fins that allow for better maneuverability.
>>952975>>952971IIf I may add, ts.. a bit addiciting as well. I confess I atleast contribute to 1/5 post on the last thread.>>952856In the bottom of the sea, finder is keeper. Meli with longer reach thrives. They also had a bit indentation in their shield that can help the animal react to the shifting of the current above them
>>952856Some Meli (called Melsii now) develop three light sensitive spots on their backs that they can use to detect potential threats and more effectively react to them.
>>952967Troco gets even more fins for moar speeeeeeeeeeeeed
>>952856If you can reach farther, at least, move faster. Other branch of the Meli did just that. This stimulation in their fins slowly support some spot in their back that was more senseful about the currents.
>>953062I understand that most of the animals here are size 1, but the image presenting them doesn thave to cater to them as well.
Am I allowed to add to my own thing if no one else is touching it?
>>953062Could you possibly make this a .pngMakes it easier to work with.
>>953077of course, evolve away
>>953077please just use the presented animals by Librarian or other branch made by us.. The goal here is to evolve them into something else and survived whatever calamity the world had in store, not rp-ing your own hero critter.
>>953085my bad I got you
>>952967While its cousin, the Troco, goes down the route of evolving more and more powerful fins for speed, the Troca instead develops a more aquadynamic body to increase its speed. This in part happens as a response to many of its prey getting faster.
>>952856A small selection of Meli live around a vent that is rich with plants in the toxic selenium. As the Meli much on these plants, they absorb the element into their body. This changes their natural green colour making them reddish in tone. This makes them easier to spot by predators, but luckily, the selenium makes them toxic to predators. Just to be sure, they've got spikes on their shells now too. I name thee... Haagameli.
>>953089no I mean't my branch of a creature
>>953103Elaborate on this
>>952853some varieties of Hawa (Called Hawee) undergo some pretty significant growth in the tail department, allowing them to go fasta
>>953110Nobody is adding anything to the hawa-pokie and I wanted to evolve it more to bring it more attention
>>953091>>952966WHAT, this demigod meant to say is that, they become more speedy with some additional fins. To further elaborate on that, their grappling claws become longer a bit, which help them.. grab things? you mentioned the wrong branch my man, also you used a tiny as hell pic. I hope its okay if I fixed it for ya
>>953120Oh it thats the case, Im sure its fine.. I think what the Librarian and some of us think ist that you plan to create a new creature out of nowhere.Every creature here should be free for all to improve, no need to ask away everytime you had an idea or an angle you want to take it
>>953042The Hawa evolves a larger and more developed mouth-hole. Since still has no jaw it can only eat anything that is small enough to fit its mouth.>>953120Go for it
>>952927The hawa-pokie's spike become bigger and barbed allowing them to use it as a weapon.
>>953142It mouth become bigger to become more accomodating to whatever things it came across. It fins slightly enlarged as well to support the creature locomotion
>>953052The Melsii develop a pair of frontal fins, used specifically for the tossing of sand. they do this both to cover up their bodies when they are hiding from predators but also to create a smokescreen that will obsure the vision of those predators who have a sense that could be vaguely be called sight and acts as a temporary sensory overload for those creatures that rely on sensing movement in the water to find their prey. Also having sand thrown in your face is extremely unpleasant and distracting. all three of these effects allow the Melsii to avoid becoming a mealsii (hahahahahahahahahaha)
>>953027The Hawo branched off of the Hawas with the whiskers, the Hawo uses its back whiskers to help with detecting prey and predators, this also acts as a false head to confuse predators.
>>953120Yeah, you can build on your own organism. Just don't be upset if someone else comes along and decides to make a divergent of your organisms or something.
>>953143Some additional flesh are developed to help Hawa-Pokie wield the spike. With this, the creature can balanced the spike without hurting its speed too damn muchalso, this development slowly mutates some proto-lateral lines nearby the tail, as much of the creature's activity are centered there
>>953092As its prey keeps getting faster >>953142 >>953158 >>953115 and better at hiding >>953160 , the Troca develops a sac that stores water. When the Troca sees a prey or is hunting for Melsii, it can either shoot the water through the two holes on its behind to quickly accelerate, or it can shoot the water infront of itself to reveal any hidden Melsii.
>>953094With this hazardous environtment the Haagamelli now choose to live, it become more dependant at its shield to ensure its survival. The shield become slightly bigger while the body "shrink" beneath it. Some visible additional feelers also emerged, which help the creature traverse the seafloor.
>>953162Its fins evolved to help the creature balance all these protrustions.. Some additional blind spots are also emerged to help watch its decoy.Also Generations refer to how many picture the animal had gone from its initial stage, not meant to signify a different species. Thus, gen can only goes up, not restart per new branch animal. It would help the QM immensely when he create a new chart if we stick to this numbering rule. Since your animal should be a Gen 3, mine here is a Gen 4. I made the same mistake as you once, so I know the confusion
>>953226The holes change shape to create more force. The Troca can now go faster for longer amounts of time
>>953190The Hawa-pokie begin absorbing toxins from Haagameli mixing it with other substances to make venom in their spike. They now have the ability to slightly slow an organism on hit.
>>953160now that their brilliant hiding places are being uncovered the Melsii are forced to develop an additional pair of flippers, these far more useful for movement than the last pair that were added. These flippers provide additional speed and manoeuvrability allowing them to avoid their would-be hunters more easily
>>953279Thanks for the correctionThe Hawo can now use its whiskers to shock any thing in its way, this is now its main defense mechanism, and it could also be used to hunt other creatures
>>953142While some Hawa develop bigger mouths, others evolve better eyes. This allows the animal to determine patterns, shapes and movement better, which in turn spurs on the evolution of patterns on its body. Any other change to the image is merely aesthetics.
Some Bryum form in clusters of 3 floating to the surface to collect more sunlight. They are called 'Floutum'
>>953125The Troco have evolved to have big meaty clawsthis is to grip prey more easily and is so powerful that it uses them to rip their prey in half to kill them.
>>953595I made a prettier version
>>953604Thank you as you could tell from my previous submissions I am not the best artist, I appreciate any help I could get
>>952849The original Bryum starts to grow roots on the rocks around it this allows them to go deeper than the regular Bryum Colony these new plants are dubbed Bryock
>>953001Due to a disease, some Grabryums have taken various colorations that made it harder for them to absorb the sunlight they need so much.To adapt to this, now many more Bryums have started bundling together to share more surface area to catch sunrays.By coincidence, some of these colonies have taken the shape of other creatures, with the ones resembling the fierce Troc family being the most likely to be left alone, giving them an edge over the other variants of color and configuration.While the disease can paint their spots in many other colors, the Troc configuration with purple spots is the most likely to survive an succeed. Time will tell if this disease becomes too much for the Imposter Bryum to bear, or if they reach a symbyosis of sorts.
>>953839The Bryock evolve twin colonies that are joined at the root
>>955005A new strain of Bryum surged due to it's (quite primitive) immunologic system's reaction to the disease. Infected cells were pressured into lumping together, which often lead to the development of deformed lumps in different parts of the colonies. However, instead of crippling the growth of the Bryum, it sped it up, thanks to the nitrogen absorbing properties of the infected cells. Higher nitrogen levels meant a more efficient use of the scarce light captured by the Bryum, which in turn means faster growth
>>953048Some Melili develop elongated thin membranes in their backs after a mutation made it excrete film-like substances out of it's rear fins. These "Nets" are dragged along the seafloor, and lift buried nutrients that are later eaten.
>>953604they develop smaller claws on their claws allowing them to grab things.
>>953533The front flippers of the Hawa grow larger and more powerful
>>955495Some Net Meilili have found themselves with some unexpected freeloaders.Some Bryum spores have made their home on the membranes of the Meilili, and those that are not consumed manage to grow to a level where removing them would damage the host.so far no other interaction has been observed between these two lifeforms.
>>955316More and more colonies are joined together as they had higher survival chance against nature when they hurdled together
>>955005With this development, and their disease, some Grabryums rely on their innate chemosynthesis to produce energy for themselves. Unlike its counterpart, these Bryums sink itself into the water, and process whatever inorganic materials abundant in deeper water to create more food. I had to keep the chemistry stuff vague as it wasnt really my field of expertise, maybe someone else can do it, but not me.
>>955495to reach out to these filaments, slowly some Melili are observed with somekind of segmentation in their shield. It keep the creature protected, but also give it some movement capability to reach the back areas of its body
>>953568Some Floutum clusters even more as the waves collects them together. Sometimes, this isnt enough and thus many specimen are instead pulled back into the water as the current rages on, but they eventually start float upwards the water surface again
>>955652This development of maneuverability, supported by other fundamentals such as awareness through sight, further enlarged the creature. Not to mention that this stimulation also triggers the existence of proto lateral lines, which helps it sense the surrounding water currents and pressurealso, I hope its okay with calling this particular strain Hawai, for archival purposes
>>955680>chemistry stuffThe can "digest" stuff, that's itIt could gorw to become a predatory plant colony f sorts
>>953115The filaments that the creature uses as a tail to propel itself, become more complex as simple, sensing spots develop there. Somehow with the existence of poisonous water, the creature also develop a cleaner digestive system, with an anus in the back of its body
>>955660Cooperation is key, and when a parasitic plant begin to latch into its brethren, slowly, some Farmer Meilili helps trim and eat each others overgrown spores, creating some primitive cooperationThis means more successfull reproduction as well, as most of the time, the pair are mating partners, and they would travel for live.
>>953367Hawa Pokie with bigger spike had a higher expectancy than those with small ones, as they can actively guard themselves. On a certain specimens, their spike are bigger for them to actually swim properly, and thus they settle for a life in the bottom of the shelf, using a modified filaments to "walk" on the sea floor.To guard, their spike gradually becomes bigger and they can slowly secrete their own poison, which are mixed with Haagameli's to be more deadly. Their purple sensitive spots become better as well.
>>955458This continues on, with the infected cells are pushed further, while the plant continues to grow upwards. The base of the plant became rather nasty and poisonous, but as long as the base werent consumed, the Lump Bryum can grew again eventually
>>953160The Melsii improve their hiding technique by making burrows instead of just covering themselves in sand. Due to this new behavior Melsii whose bodies were more suited for digging were more sucessful, and as such some Melsii began incorporating iron into their bodies in the form of "shovels" on their rear fin and their frontal fins. They are now called "Digger Melsii".
>>953296The Troca's rear holes are now mounted on top of small limbs, giving it higher maneuverability.
>>953568some varieties of Floutum develop hollow "bags" around their bodies that they fill with the oxygen produced via photosynthesis. this allows it to more easily flout to the surface (since oxygen is lighter than water) when it has enough oxygen in the bags, also allowing it to stay up at the surface with great ease.
>>955635As the Bryum colonies start becoming poisonous and developing a purple color (making them look like troco) the troco begin to hide near and in the colonies, developing a green spot pattern and an immunity to their poison and deseasesm the troco now use bryum colonies as hiding spots for their herbavorous prey.
>>955869Troca's water pumps become more focused, and more apparent, which increase its powers. To keep up with the speed, slowly, the eyestalks on Trocas can be shrunk, diminishing a certain friction when moving.
>>955747That's kinda cute actually.>>955685This segmentation eventually evolves into a long, fleshy tube protected by two shell partitions (one on top and the other one on the bottom). This tube not only allows the Melili to stretch to their back areas and "harvest" their nets, but also hosts most of their innards, resulting in a larger digestive system which allows for a better absorption of nutrients.
>>953226Some other Troca start specializing in hunting the Haagameli >>953235 . Due to a mutation the toxins get stored in the Troca's skin, acting similarly to a liver. These Troca develop one powerful single fin, instead of having two.
>>955652Other Hawa have instead with time had their skeletal structure/noctocords develop as the abundance of calcium in the water gets absorbed through their food. This has caused the development of a calcified skull. This off-shoot of Hawa is called Halikot.
>>956051THe addition of a skull means that grasping and chewing becomes difficult. So the Hawa's lips extend outward when it needs to feed, becoming a creepy fleshy tube with odd nodules at the end for even more fine-tuned grasping. Most of the time this is hidden inside its mouth, but when it spies a tasty treat it shoots it out like a frog tongue. For a preview of what shooting this mouth-tube-with-little-fingers might look like, refer to this footage of a goblin shark: https://youtu.be/GjRSlnJ1rA4?t=20
>>955768The Hawa-pokie finally catch up to their cousins by developing light sensitive eyes
>>956042These Troca develop bigger and more powerful claws, capable of cracking the shell of the different Meli.
>>956216>>955969To compete with the ever-increasing reach if it's competitors the troco >>955903 develop lon ger claws, it helps when reaching prey, but makes it harder to hide in the >>955811 lump bryum.
>>956433The big and powerful claw became the bane at the QT-Troca's existence as the creature had to adapt as the claw became even bigger than needed. The creature adapt by mainly using its lesser claw to prop and help navigate the bigger claws, as seen in the picture. The creature's body flattened and elongate a bit to help swim, but the assymetry is also seen here as one side of its fin are bigger to help even out the weight of such killing claw
>>955892More Floutum joined together to help the organism became bigger and more complex than before. They share one big bag instead of many, and this bag had a hatch that the plant can periodically open to release excess gas or something into the air. When they mature, the plant release so much oxygen so that the hatch now faces the water, and they release their spores straight into the water.
>>952979The colony crumbles a bit as the environtment can contain their current height, but they make it up by widening the colony reach. Fundamentally, they are mostly the same, but they became more efficient at photosynthesis
Somewhere along the lone there was a cross-species offspring of >>956617 And >>956475 , creating a new species, its large claw shrinks in size to a manageable anmount and it's smaller claw becomes vestigial. Keeping the large tail that adapts to look like the leaf of >>955811 and, like jts prwdicessors, hides in >>955811 , and has an immunity to its poisons, creating a symbiotic relationship between the two.
>>952979Mutation in the coloration of the colonies are seldom to be seen, mostly it comes with the disease that caught up to its cousin. However, in this particular strain, it also affects the coloration of a bryum as a whole. Combined with some colonies found itself formed in areas with higher traces of various chemical compared elsewhere, gave way to an Bryum colony that had various colors in one batch, with each color designate its specialization, which then was shared to the whole colony, making it durable to any circumstances thrown at it.(Green mainly uses Photosynthesis, followed by Blue and Yellow, and Red is mainly produce food by Chemosynthesis)
>>956727As colonies grew larger , and different competitors rose (>>956975), Bryums with damaged spore emitters proved to be more prone to succeed than their normal peers, since their spores were attached together when released, which allowed them to travel longer distances across the sea. This eventually lead to a new strain of Bryum, which had specialized "spore sacks" that grew from it's stem. These sacks consisted of a membrane that acts as an "envelope" for the spores to travel on, until it pops, which releases them in all directions in a very violent manner.
>>956774Mutation continues to occur in this rogue offspring, and eventually it slows down and reach a stable specimens that can grew into adulthood. It was a bit smaller, but this new size helps it hide in those plants that werent that big in the first place. The whole physiology had also been balanced out. The big claw positioned itself into the bottom side of the creature, and the smaller one fused with the mouth to be more effective.
>>956358Even with the eyes, the main sensing organ for the Hawalk Pokie, the lateral spots in their back, continues to grow as other threats continues to evolve in their world. The musclelature of their tail became more focused, which makes it even deadlier.Hawalk Pokie itself is a calm creature by definition, continues to munch mainly plants or primitive small animals with its simple mouth
>>955969The herbivorous Turtleneck Melili's shell widens a bit as the animal flourish and enlarges under the now more expansive floras. To help its movement, the creature's legs repositioned itself, with a pair of forward legs.
>>957257I feel like the hawalk-pokie is a gentle giant scorpion thing. like, It could kill you with super deadly poison but not unless you attack first.
>>955811Due to a symbiotic relationship of protection from >>957039 the Bryum lump is free to grow very large. It stretches to reach a structure of a large base lump and a long trunk wjth a bundle of leaves floating above water, and a few bundles of leaves around parts of the trunk for the QT-chanelico to hide
>>957314Due to the large uprise in poisonous plants, they develop bettet working eyes to differentiate the plants.
>>957345yeah, I mean, bees sting, but they eat godamn flower powder. >>955703I would prefer if they can evolve towards fulltime chemosynthesis, mimicking those founds in hydrothermal vents, but with materials available in this world's sea. The OP said that live is found exclusively in continental shelf, and said that materials are mostly found in trace amounts, so perhaps later on. I was also inspired by this 5.5 myo cave where there arent any lights at all, yet there is a full going ecosystem there, >https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movile_Cavebut it was a very secluded example and like I said, I dont really had the time to fully grasp the chemical stuffs. But feel free to take this strain anywhere any of you please, making it free for all is more exciting and unpredictable then railroading this thing on my own.>>956216Some muscles are developed in the Halikot's mouth to help it launch its jawset into the water. It had to be powerful enough or else, the whole thing just going to shoot back as it cant stand the sudden pressure of its surrounding. Oh, and their eyes positioned better for more acute awareness of their environtment, and better targeting
>>955747>>957362As different forests of algae appear across the seafloor, Farmer Meililis that dwell near nitrogen-fixing Byrum are at risk. This is due to the fact that they tend to absorb the nitrogen available in the water and transfer it to the soil rather by acumulating it in the base of their bodies. Farmer Meililis that didn't emigrate from N-Byrums forests had to take a more hands-on approach to their problem, they an extra pair of tendril-arms and strengthened their old ones. These new and improved limbs were used to attack the bases of the Byrum vines to get nitrogen, and then laying eggs inside them.
>>957562Thank you for improving my drawing, desu. J got crappy software.
>>957039To protect its home against preditors (>>957562) it develops a hard-hooked tail, this tail is used to break and stick into the hard shell of its newfound prey. This tail is also used (almost counter-intuitively) to stick into the poison part of the byrum vine and use jt to poison it's prey.
>>955848Their shovel became bigger to help it dig faster, but also help it shield itself from attack if it was found. Some more indentation are found in the shield, helping it become more aerodynamic, which can help it when it was swing around in the water.
>>957380The Melili's new vision let them scout different areas of their environment and tell them where to filter feed. However life isn't easy in Rienia, and as productors grow taller, free floating food becomes scarcer in lower areas of the sea. This leads to the development of a third, rarer (less dense) net, which floats upwards and catches any food that the other nets may have missed. All these improvements on the Melili's diet lead to a significant growth in their size, and all the excess matter implies a heavy load on the Melili's innards, to fight this a larger intestinal track, alongside specialized organs which secrete liquids that facilitate the absorption of nutrients are developed. These new digestive system proves to be very efficent, however it isn't very environmentally friendly, since more food means more waste, which in turn means a higher concentration of Methane, a byproduct of the several processes the Telili's do when digesting plant matter, in the seawater.>>957623No prob friend
>>957035The plant grew with a thicker posterior which can help the whole colony get a hold of themselves after beign released everywhere by their new sporesacks. It sacrificed some placement of some Bryum, but it pushed forward a thickeri individual organisms
>>953839The newly found excess methane produced by such creature like>>957715, triggers more development of chemosynthesis in the plant life. Some primitive bryocks that are commonly found in deeper areas, for instance, begin to utilize this compound to further create food, rivaling their usual methods of using sunlight. The plant synthesize methane by combining hydrogen and carbon dioxide, forming carpets on the seafloors with those preferences.
>>953376Eventually, the animal just learn how to swim more efficiently, and rarely ever scuttle in the floor anymore. They became Melsea, a basic, prawn like swimmer. Their eyes are now located in their side of the body and the top, to help analyze the surrounding better
>>957943As chemosynthesis replaces photosynthesis in the Byrocks, the clorophyl in their bodies is replaced by different specialized cells that are able to break apart the bonds that keep Methane molecules together, liberating energy and synthesizing different organic compounds made from the "spare" atoms.
>>957980Melsea begin to expand their territory, swimming a little farther above the sea floor.
>>953376A population of Melsii that have not become free-swimming crustacean-like organisms still remain on the seafloor. The hind-section of them is covered in a hard, thick shell much like their front half.While still feeding mostly on vegetation, they now supplement their diet with scavenging. Perhaps this contributed to their growth spurt.
>>957891In order to lure different organisms into spreading it's spore pods, the Bryum colonies start investing some of it's excess energy into Bioluminescent pods.
>>958409Might be for Earth critters, but this is an alien world. Instead of thinking 'this is wrong', think 'how do they use it differently'?In any case, do tell more than just a wikipedia screenshot.
>>958409What did he mean by this
>>953125Troco begins to work in pairs.
>>958424 mas ikut maen lah sini wkwk
>>958135The tail fin of these Melsii atrophy and disappear, replaced by an armoured extension to their thorax, providing the creature with more defence for its hind legs and rear
>>958494masi jam kerja, ntar kalau agak senggang tak ikut :B
>>955737Hawee decide to become full time filter feeders and become herbivores. their new filter mouth moves to a position that maximises the water that will pass through them. they also develop a pair of small jets on either side of their body that they can jet water (that they store after filtering it for plant matter) causing the creature to move forward, often quite quickly
>>957257The tip of the hawalk-pokie's stinger now has a hole to better inject venom. Also the hawalk-pokie begins making vemon so deadly they can't even kill things injected with it. They are now almost herbivorous with very little meat in their diet.
>>958549*eat things injected with it**
>>952849Some form of bryum start to move, gaining a way to move their leaves to push them like a tail. Another mutation works in tandem, smaller hairs on the stem, to suck uo nutrients. This new "bryuim" swims about randomly landing on the ground and sucking nutrients. They are easy prey, but reproduce very quickly.
>>957646Due to their stratagem of hiding in >>957362 and using kts poison for itself, the more "lea-shaped" and thin ones survive longer
>>953235The Haagameli's carapace develops even further. It now possesses a pair of moving mandibles ,an additional armor plate on it's back, and A LOT more spikes. Due to this new dangerous quality and it's red coloration, it is now called the Khorneli.
>>958135The Melsii's shell often obscures it's vision, and as such some Melsii were born with transparent shells which do not impede vision. The shells are still as tough as before.They are now know as Transparent Melsii.
>>958610AIn a ceazy, mirical pf mutation, Bryuim gain conciousness and eyes, a new animalistic plant this is, it can now see where light is to more easily photosythisise. But this new bryuim blurs the line between herbavor and preditor.
>>958516longer Melsii develop longer more powerful "legs" that allow them to move faster and a larger jaw that allows them to take advantage of more of the assorted plants and detritus's found on the sea floor. This triggers a small growth spurt.
>>958445To help identify its own species and surrounding, the mouth ot Troco begin to develop siphoning tube like structure, which circulate the water around them in constant manner, smelling its surrounding.They become better swimmer too.
>>958089Since the last evolution seemed to be behaviour based only, of course the next physiological evolution are going to support such changes. Thus, the animal become more adapted to swimming. The sea is a very wide space, and the abundant of primitive and simple but numerous plant live commonly not touched by other organism make this Melsea to be numerous, which in turn is an abundant foodsource to other predator, maturing the ecosystem as a whole
>>958762The coloration and shape of the Troco gradually changes in order to adapt to the changing ecosystem.Should Troco be the pluralization of Troco?
>>958773Melsea slightly adapt to the new situations they encounter. Due to their increased swimming, their shell and fins also continue to develop.
>>958723Due to the changes in its behavior, Bryrium gradually evolves further. It gains new subtle adaptions in coloration that allow it to blend in with its environment. Its eye's develop further as well.
>>958053The plant became more stable and efficient, which in turn evolve a way to reproduce. As their specialized living condition dictate that they cant grew everywhere that easily, their spore are collected into purplish pods that had higher durabitly, preserving it until it reaches somewhere more to their liking. However, 90% of the time, the pods just nest nearby the parent plant as the condition there are already perfect for their species, and grew next to each other, eventually blanketing this part of the seafloor that is rich in Methane, serving as a warning to any creature which had enough sense to see the danger and turn away.
>>958827As this species tends to stay out of the way snd avoid predators, it's becomes more transparent, the ones harder to see become harder to find and eat.
>>958789Maybe? If I were you I just called them Trocoroco, since there are 2 Troco now. also, is it just me or did I see no visible changes in that animal or this one? >>958804>>958827It focused all its sensory organ in one spot, the yellowish and red one, and use the remaining part of its body to move and sense. As always, this creatures are very small and its number are uncountable in the water. They also became one of the oxygen providing organism due to their photosynthesis which is still there.
>>958719Their mouth became more advanced to munch more complex plants.. but of course, they stay out of those who are dangerous.. Some ifurther indentation in their shell helped them feel the water current around them, as well as some other changes in their eyes and legs which helped those organ became more bearable
>>958679While the Khornmeli can tolerate poison to a certain amount, they also develop behaviour to hold their breath and cover their respiratory system (which is located somewhere, but nobody really knows where) to help them pass through areas with high level of toxicity beyond their immunity can carry. This is helped with the development of longer but also protected legs which can help the creature walk faster.. It all combined to give these creature greater trek area and spread
>>958546The jet pumps travel backwards near the anus, where it share some channels together, making the creature dump excess materials while moving, lessening the energy needed to contract muscles and what not. Their mouth also became more suited for the job, filtering small plants, theirs spores, and even Bryum lines like these guys >>958868 who arebasically still a plant anyway (?)
>>958549Thanks to the hole in their stinger the hawalk-pokie xan now shoot their DNA into the sea for faster reproduction.TL;DR - hawalk pokies can now cum into the sea
>>958919They're sentient plants
>>958949Hawalks with green and purple colorations survive longer, as it makes would-be predators confuse them with the deadly >>958627 and the poisonous >>957362
>>959097As the Hawalks with green and purple coloration continue to survive longer, their coloration changes, allowing them to blend in even better.
>>952853a new breed of Hawa called Alla spawn with the ability to sence heat with there new frangled thermal detectoin organs, allowing them to detect the body heat of nearby organisms
>>952854Some of the more primitive Hawa change form in order to catch up, becoming Hawar.
>>952854Being a bottom feeder, it's population slowley becomes sand colored to blend in, its hard shell extending.
>>956051Other Halikot go down the route of not becoming eldritch beasts, opting for more speed instead. They develop an additional pair of strong back fins. As this happens the original tail fins migrate backwards.The patterns also become more pronounced.
>>956433Other QT-Troca solve the problem of the big claw by growing even bigger themselves. As they grow bigger they also develop teeth, allowing them to bite with the help of ringmuscles around it mouth-hole.
>>959249Competition for food sources causes Hawar to develop further, slightly increasingin size. A mutation alters its coloration.
>>959413Due to poor food sources, Hawar continue to erratically change in size and behavior.
>>959472This coloration based development are kept up with better eyesight that helps the animal recognize its fellow Hawar. The photosensitive spots are now specialized to pick up similarly Hawar's coloration first and movements, while everything else is as blurry as ever. Hawar with a lot of movements are more noticable to its peers, thus more succeptible to mating, and eventually, Hawar with big, flowing, but not necessarily flippers are more common as they are more visible to the primitive eyes of their species
>>959472Hawar continues to erratically change in size and behavior.
>>958949Its fast, but proper care are probably needed to ensure that those genetic materials successfully grew safely. Releasing gametes freely into the ocean is a wild, unpredictable process. So what happens here is that the creature evolved beyond that, >The sex organ and the sting became separated, and the sex organ can elongate itself to more accurately shot its content>They shot it, at a pouch inside the creature's mouth, as it was the safest orifice on these peaceful animals>Then, their partner would shot their materials inside that pouch as well, where they fertilize each other safely on the closed and controlled environtment of the mouth.>Once the younglings had formed and were big enough, it was released into the wild.to help this method, the tail and the body elongate and become more flexible. The sensitive spots in their back became photosensitive like primitive eyes, just like the normal spots in the other side of the body. It can hold itself better in the floor with their new, sturdier fins.
>>959693Hawar develops feelers in order to detect food.
>>959944TL;DR, the Hawalk Pokie now cums inside their mouth and became pregnant there
>>959944Hawalk-Pokie develops asexuality. As it no longer requires bright colors in order to attract mates, its coloration becomes less flamboyant.
>>960004Due to their asexuality, there is almost no genetic variation, causing many negative recessive traits to pop up,one of those taits is a shrinking in their side fins, this branch, the "hawalk-pok" are stuck on the sea flor.
>>960004Due to their asexuality, there is almost no genetic variation, causing many negative recessive traits to pop up,one of those taits is a vibrant color, no other species has colors so bright and it is easily found prey for the troco family and it's own generic cousins.
>>960146If it's asexual why does it still have a sex organ? Also, how exactly does it's asexuality work? Does it separate in two like a worm or what?
>>960167Hello, check >>960004 , the hawalk's are impregnating themselves. Maby "asexual" isnt thecorrect word, but it doesn't need a mate.
>>960004Due to their asexuality, there is almost no genetic variation, causing many negative recessive traits to pop up, one of those traits is a shorter tail. HOWEVER this shorter tail makes it impossible to self-impregnate, and forces them to find a seperate mate, this, is the most likely branch of hawalk to survive.
>>959323Halikot begin some crossbreeding with its cousin species, of Hawai >>955700What resulted here, are Halikots with lateral lines, sensitive lines where they can feel the current in the water, helping the creature swim more easily and sense its surrounding conditions. It has also been seen nearby the creature's mouth, where it help the animal sense their nearest eatable object in thick, darker water during sundown or bad weathers.
>>959947Hawar further develops its feelers in order to sense out food sources. Its body stream lines somewhat in order to swim faster.
>>960208Maybe the guy you are replying with are confused as of why, would a creature with specialized and effective method of breeding, with courtship and care about their young, suddenly decided to go asexual instead. Lol, Im personally snickering here as well. Theres no right or wrong as we are all are evolving through the rule of cool, but its a bit of a funny thing to stumble upon, thats allPersonally, I only take some notes and combine the two methods of Sea Cucumber breeding as seen here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_cucumber#Reproduction and just make it as tongue in cheek as possible with cummies in mouth.Also, since the creature never extinct unless it was said by the QM, maybe we can all just evolve the original mouth cummers if in the end those so called recessive gen only bring them back into mating again..
>>960346I mean, it did confuse me, but im a-ok with it (Not that it matters anyways lmao), I just wasn't sure how it reproduced asexually.
>>960346I think that's our differences, you're taking inspiration from existing creatures and jm using my imagination combines with a bit of logic.anyway, I understand
>>960346>>960359>>960364This is a super serious thread guys.
>>960374I don't see how self impregnation isn't serious tho. Not only is it like, super common in nature (Sea urchins, and stuff.) I also love intersex porn.
>>960374We aren't derailing anything, nothing is outlandish, it didn't completely change. The old species still exist. I was just adding to the list of species.
>>960359Maybe, it reproduce like those lizards that were all females to begin with? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ParthenogenesisIf it was the case then it certainly can find a way to stabilise its genetical makeup, and then the population can proceed to go on normally.>>960374I am being serious when I sugges that. From what I see in the thread, this creature had only had an orifice in front of its body (besides the stinger andeventually the sex organ) and without any mention of anus or anything, perhaps it eats and regurgiate said food material using the same pathway, like seen in many marine animals. Its not just a mouth, but its a myriad of other things using the same channel on an animal. If thats the case, then theres nothing stopping it from storing its eggs in same pathway, even if it had to cause the animal to stop eating for some time beaing as seen as well in species of frogs and fishes that also store its young in its mouth. Later on, probably it evolved such spaces inside its "mouth" that can be used as a storage for eggs only,
>>960374>>960386>>960390>>960415Oh thank Khorne, an interlude in organisms, so I don't keep falling behind on the Phylogeny Chart
>>958053Due to Byrock's increased nutrients, it changes in coloration, attracting predators that live near the Byrock, which prey upon herbivores, thus creating a symbiotic relationship.
>>960463Well you've never posted one at all.
>>960463Nah take your time Librarian.. If you had said the word, I think most of us would stop at your command
>>960498Do you know if you can post, at least what chart you have so far? We can take a break so you can finish the chart.
>>957943As the original Byrocks were slowly being rendered obsolete by it's offspring evolutions, some of them opted for a mutualist way of life, call it convergent evolution if you wish, but much like their cousins, this new strain of Byrock started using a Meli species as their symbiont. The Pararoc establish a mutualist relationship with the Telili ( >>957715), living inside their digestive tract, they absorb the excess methane inside it to live, taking a heavy weight off the Telili's detoxifying and circulatory system. Their waste is also rich in certain vitamins that are found scarcely in the sea, which extends their symbiont's lifespan.Their spores are either scattered alongside the Telili's waste, or until the aforementioned die. In the latter case the Pararoc's rise from the decomposing tissue and start growing without discriminating in and on their host's body, and release their spores into the sea.
>>960322As time passes, Hawar's sensors and coloration develops further.
>>960532I can do that. Part 1 (Just the Plants)
>>960805Part 2 Featuring all the animal organisms.
>>960734Hawar's fins start to mimic the diverse plant life.
>>960810Could you add limes showing where what splits into what?
>>960920You'll get that in the "Caught-up" versions. And believe me I am really close.
>>960929Okay, thanks, btw remember at one point two of the troco branches re-combined through a cross-species breeding. (The big claw one also had its own seperating branch, but jt was one of those two.
>>960929Just letting ya know that >>957362 was redrawn in >>957562
>>961027Good to know. Thank you.
>>958868>what's the secret formula, mr. khornili
Here are the finally caught up and revised Phylogeny ChartsPart a (Plants)
>>961471And Part b (Animal Organisms)
>>961482Good. This is lit...so how abkut those random world events, now that a few million years has caused alot of variation......
>>961471Okay so, one problem with this chart: >>957362 actaully evolved from >>955811, but you marked it as coming from >>955680
>>961696Also you put >>960594 as a meli evo, when it actually evolved from >>957943
>>959944With all the calcium they absorb they make their sexual organs with a protective layer.
>>961482hawa has clearly devloped the most, shortly followed by meli. although I kinda want a new base species to be threw into the mix to see how that throws every thing apart. image related.
I tibwould like a new base, but >>961952 just looks like another hawa
>>958913The Khorneli's carapace now covers almost all of it's body. Due to this, they can no longer rely on sense of touch, and as such have grown a pair of small appendages on their front that act as a "nose", giving this creature the ability to navigate by smell.They also grow a little bigger and their tail is rotated differently.
>>957680The Digger Melsii become less flat, and as such it can store more energy in it's bigger stomach or whatever it uses to hold food.
>>961696The Bryum Vine misplacement was an honest mistake on my part. Sorry.>>961876This on the otherhand was not a mistake on my part. I placed this organism as a Meli evo, because it requires the symbiosis of the Telili organisms. So it will remain in the animal organism category because of this.>>961952I already have planned base organisms to potentially introduce in future points of this EvoGame. I appreciate the input though.
>>962182When are we having a world event?
>>962118The carapace growth continues and it now has two massive horns to brutally fight for mates.
>>956433Some QT-Troca have adapted to having such a huge claw by twisting the whole thing 90 degrees, so that the small claw ends up at the bottom and the big one at the top. They murder prey with the big claw then put the meat into their mouths with the small claw. Over time, the limb on which the top claw was mounted atrophied, connecting the claw directly to the body.Due to how the upper claw makes them look, they are now called GB-Trocas, the reasons for such a name will be obvious to some of you.
>>962264The Troca's eyes massively enlarge to provide better vision as it starts to prey in very deep waters.
>>962128The Digger Melsii become even less flat and their shell now has an eye pattern to trick foes.
>>962118The Khorneli's carapace now covers even it's fin, and due to this, an interesting development happens. You see, all the Meli species reproduce using two glands under their fins: one acts as a "male" organ and the other acts as the "female" organ. Due to the Khorneli's carapace extending over it's fin, most specimens have one of the two covered, and as such they can now be divided into males and females. This division encourages gender-specific differences in the structure of their armor: the females have "tails" that are good at holding eggs, while the "tails" of the males are specialised to help the Khorneli fight for mates.Also, their antennae extend slightly, enhancing their olfactory senses.
>>958903Some Transparent Melsii are born with their eyes closer to their front end than others, becoming Fronal Melsii. Also, their back legs become a bit longer.
>>962264The GB-Troca develops a canal thatconnects the inside of their bigger claw with their digestive system. It's eating process now happens like this:Kill prey with big claw>Swallow prey through the big claw>Vomit into the real mouth>Chew>Send into stomach
>>962270The Troca can now make its massive eyes reflect collected light in random patterns for an alluring display, to attract its prey in the depths like an angler fish.Now named C-Troca for "colorful" Troca.
>>962270Stupid and derailing. Looks like a chode
>>962398I dont see how when deep sea fish actually have huge fucking eyes.
>>962409That would be a valid argument if you made them just big, instead of being bigger than the ENTIRE CREATURE.
>>962409In their head, yeah. But these protrude and would be easily riped off
>>962419>>962421Ok, I'll have the creature evolve smaller (but still have huge) eyes in the next stage.
--World Event: The Light Grows Dim in Black Waters--Just as Janus had lived under the protection of the Gas Giant Seostea's massive Magnetospehere, Rienia in it's early life had been blessed with this protection from its parent gas giant. Just like its sister moon, Rienia Magnetosphere also comes to life causing a minor global destabilization of the planet's crust. This destabilization results in a mass appearance of hydrothermal vents spawning across the open ocean, jutting out large volumes of gaseous carbon into the ocean.Life on Rienia has been allowed to bloom and scatter across the waters of the world, as the land continued to burn, and lay barren above. Recently the surface's erratic volcanic activity has become more stable, but now a majority of the world's oceans have become filled with a dark haze, reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the open ocean, and causing the oceans to cool, unless you find yourself within the proximity of these hydrothermal vents. The coasts and shallow seas have been spared of this dark haze, and are now more inviting to life. In addition this release of carbons has also brought with it nutrients that could be synthesized through chemosynthesis. This soot filled ocean effect is expected to last for about 10 million years.--Organism Advancement--> Plant Organisms may be as large as the size 7 increment as stated here >>952845> Animal Organisms may be as large as the size 6 increment as stated here >>952845> Any animal organisms that rely heavily on their basic vision will struggle to survive in the colder blackened waters.> Organisms are still locked from entering land but may now inhabit the shallow seas/coastlines.> The hydrothermal vents now serve as the only regions in open ocean where life living nearby will experience the same temperatures as previously. Everywhere else in open ocean is around 4-6˚C colder.> Carbon-based nutrients/minerals, along with Silicates, Calcium, Iron, and Selenium are present in the environment and may be incorporated into an organisms diet/evolutions if desired.--Planet Statistics--Atmosphere: 76% Nitrogen, 9% Oxygen, 5% Sulfur Oxide, 3% Helium, 3% Carbon Dioxide, 4% Other GasesAverage Global Temperature: 74°F (23°C)Tectonics: Present; ActiveVolcanic Activity: Earth-like (Ordovician Era)Weather Systems: Turbulent Storm Systems
>>962459C-Troca starts to migrate to higher, more illuminated waters in order survive and find prey, thus relieving its need for ocular size which it developed for the depths. The eye-stems allow the same devolution, lowering it to allow them to be more properly attached to their body. Overall size increases.
>>961939The Hawalk-pokie is already good at absorbing calcium so with more calcium in the water their stinger gets even stronger. They also begin using their stinger as a feeler to help with the darkness.
>>962474The C-Trocas start to develop rudimentary communication through their developed eyes and its light-shows, allowing for pack hunting and predator warning. Their brain develops to accomplish this, as the secondary claw atrophies from disuse.
>>962507GB-Troca (Gen 6) > Big-Eye Troca (Gen 7) > C-Troca (Gen 8) > [World Event] > C-Troca migration upwards (Gen 9) > Social C-Troca (Gen 10)So Gen 10, I believe. Size: 2 (Bumblebee).
>>962507As food becomes scarcer, the Trocas are forced to manage their energy better, and eventually this leads to pincer-less Trocas, now known as Scotras, to appear.
when r we goin back 2 the othr plantit?
>>962727Next Thread boyo
>>959221>>962459With the sea darkened, and some hydrothermal vents have been seen in swimmable depths, it was quickly overriden by Alla which had the ability to somewhat detect heat. The creature became bigger as they thrive on marine snow and each other (cannibalism) which increase more heat sensory to develop. They are blind, which is good because they can invest more energy, evolutionarily speaking, towards developing these heat organs
>>958832As methane and other molecules that can be used in chemosynthetic activities become more accessible, Byrocks now populate most of the soot covered areas of the oceans, and are able to reach heights that weren't achievable before. These organisms live in dense bush forests, that may serve as a new habitat for deep-sea organisms.
>>953532>>962459The new,bleak and gloomy atmosphere of the open ocean really is the perfect chance for creatures with alternte methods (besides vision) to recognize its surrounding to became more special. The Hawo's eyes is as glum as ever, but its whiskers, became stronger. While electricity burst in their previous gen most of the time also cause the animal to die due to overworking their primitive nerveous system at once, they became more complex overtime to handle the pressure on their body. The new gen is bigger, and improved electric ability only lessens the fatality of using it by 15%, but they are focusing it even more at detecting other animals, by developing these primitive electroreceptors that is connected to its central systems. All animals naturally produce electric fields due to the activity of their nerves and muscles. So when the Hawo traverse the ocean with its whiskers, its electroreceptors detect these tiny currents, allowing it to tell living prey in the dark. After reading some materials for reference, Im convinced that the ability to generate electricity isnt that simple as it requires specialized organs and adequate nerve system. Knowing these little buggers are primitive and are pretty simple, I felt necessary to nerf its ability a bit, and making it more focused on sensory first.
>>960479Just like its cousin the Extreme Bryock, the Flourishing Bryock also thrive in this rich environtment. Unlike its cousin that developed specialized pods, this plant simply overextend the "leaves" ability to regenerate, and periodicaly let them be hauled by the current to be drifted elsewhere, and if the leave are intact enough and healthy enough, it can slowly grew back to small plants.
>>962475SOMEBODY HELP ME SAVE THE HAWALK-POKIE. THESE ARE MY BABIESSS. NOOOOOOO DON'T DIEEEEEEEE.
>>958154With the open ocean muddled, the bioluminescent pods that shine birghter are more noticeable for other animals for tackle and thus had higher chance to be drifted away. However, not all of those pods can grew, as the sunlight been reduced, a great number of pods only survive in cleaner and shallower waters, like >>962459 said.>>962951Working on it, but please take some interest in Xpryums, will ya?
>>962475Hawalk Pokie's calcium intake ushered a growth of mini "beak" near its orifice (mouth) that can help it cut off more complex plant matters. Not to mention, as they migrate to shallower waters, their fin-feets became wider to help itself balance on a more sandy terrain
>>963074they don't look as pretty but they're gonna live dammit.
>>957362The calamity in the open ocean didnt really bother Bryum Vines as it was evidenced that it had lived in a shallower waters in the first place (where else would you find a 10 cm plant living with its top above waters?) However, with the release of nutrients that can help the plant circle out their disease, more Bryum Vines are found to be taller and live in deeper waters, as they became bigger since the ecosystem can support them now
>>962304The Diggers now developed thicker shells, to help insulate itself better and to protect itself from the elements which now flood the sea, not to mention, harder mouth and digestive system to help it chew into the chemosynthesis plants
>>962905sorry about that thanks for doing the research tho>>953532
>>958804When its eyes are cautious about its surrouning, the Melsea developed some whiskers make from parts of its mouth that it uses to help feel things in immediate front of it. It became better swimmer as well, even as they now migrate to clearer, shalower waters. This is evidenced in their bluer coloration to match the bluish water of non-open ocean
>>962459Will there be any extintion?
>>962344Frontal Melsii's eye placement help it recognize its surrounding better. Thus, when the sea became darker, they move away to shallower waters. To help them walk around in softer sandy terrain, their feets became wider, and their tail as well to help them glide along the seafloor when needed>>963217No prob. I imagine them still able to outright shock, altough most of the time, at the cost of their own life or paralysis in their whiskers, akin to what happen to bees when they stung. Somewhere further, they could definitely make a electricity a viable ability, but lets make the evo about it gradual>>963276Hey, lets not get too feisty around here
>>957562As the >>963140 Bryum Vines evolved, the Farmer Melili are lucky as their behaviour towards the plant are tolerated and the plant havent really evolved anything about them.What happens here is that, some spores from the pods of chemosynthesis plants actually had found its way into the nets of F.F.Farmer Meilili. This variation of different diets and the fact that the chemosynthesis plants are more succeptible to the nutrients in the water as of now, the F.F.Farmer Meilili metabolism greatly improved. They can evolved better nose (those brown spots are actually some smelling organ that I forgot to write but had planned since >>955747They also had more ridges in their shell and a better photosensitive spots.
>>962223With its spikes protecting itself from harm, the animal can grew older and bigger. However, as the sea darkens, and gre colder, they mostly flock to nearby the hydrothermal vents. Their noses elongate as well, and the hair on them can help the animal actually differentiate the many substance in the water, helping them get away from dangerous places and when to held their breath
>>962475The Hawalk-Pokie's reproductive organ bifurcates from the main tail.>>963044An Xmas tree
>>958832Some Byrock pods travelled alongside the migrating animals to the thermal vent areas. These new habitat was full of opportunities for them, although they would have to undergo through several changes in order to survive. They started settling near the vents, but the soil had multiple fissures, and multiple sea currents either rose or grew stronger than they already where due to the heat of the vents. All these factors pushed byrocks to the extreme, and mutations that would have meant the extinction of their race in any other conditions proved to be the most beneficial to their survival. The most important changes being the fact that the chemosynthesizing "leaves" stopped growing on the outside of the plants, but rather inside them, as a tube covered in a silky membrane that absorbed the methane molecules that could be turned into energy or organic matter. The second change was the way "stems" of the Byrocks grew, they started as a thing tube, not unlike their ancestors, but as the plant grew thick "bark" layers that allowed it to resist the strong temperatures of the moon's crust. It's colour depends on the type of substrate available to the plant. The Byrock Chimneys produce H2O and CO2 in their gaseous forms, that are liberated into the sea, and flow as bubbles until they exit the sea and reach the air.
>>963421Dam the pic didn't post
>>955680With the abundance of nutrients and other materials released by the vents, many Imposter Bryum found themselved grew lushly some distance from such phenomenons. However, most of them ends up partially destroyed due to the extreme temperature the vents ejected as they didnt had enough materials to shield themselves like what happens in >963421 and thus they are called the Singed Bryums instead. Their soft tissues are more edible to the herbivorous organism that lives near the vents tho.
>>962270..uhm as the animal's eye enlarged so much due to some unprecedented mutations, it had great trouble of swimming to its own whims. Gradually, some specimens are drifted more and more above the shallower sea as more vents open up in the sea floor. Most of the animals die out due to incompatible pressure, some specimens survives, and actually live back in shallower waters, even the surfaceTheir balloon like eyes slowly dies due to super exposure to sunlight, but it give the animal buoyancy to floats, targeting and eating whatever herbivores that tries to had a munch on floating plants such as >>955892 or >>956695 and their spores. The animal is blind, and they sense their surrounding by their old jet system that smells the different particles current as they move around
>>963651That's actually really sad.
>>963413how do the hawalk-pokie get mouth cummies with the organ not on their tail??
>>965084>>963413Its either (flatworm style)>Pokie A ejaculate the materials straight into the Pokie B's orifice>Pokie B then shoot theirs into Pokie A's orifice>Pokie A and Pokie B' "kiss" by connecting the opening of their orifice together, and both pushed the eggs sacks forward, both trying to throw out their stored materials>It was a tug of war battle, with the losing side being the one subjected of nesting the egg in their mouth, but the winner had to take care of its partnerOr (butterfly style)>Pokie A ejaculate the materials straight into Pokie B's orifice>its genital now empty, Pokie A then suck the content of Pokie B's material straight from B's genitalia using its own organ (genital to genital)>Pokie A's then repeat the first process, but now it eject B's material into its own orificeOr (herd style)>Pokie A and Pokie B ejaculate their materials into Pokie C's eggs sacks through its orifice>Pokie B and Pokie C ejaculate their materials into Pokie D's eggs sacks through its orifice>Pokie C and Pokie D ejaculate their materials into Pokie A's eggs sacks through its orifice>Pokie D and Pokie A ejaculate their materials into Pokie B's eggs sacks through its orifice
>>963074because I want them to live dammit the hawalk-pokies with beaks' (the ones that'll not go extinct) reproductive organ also branches off
>>963651The Tropca further develops into the Topca. (Because it dwells on "top")Their eye-stems have strengthened into arms, allowing them to remain on a standing stance on top of the waters surface, while using their ample fin like a Lilly pad for balance. They may still duck down into the water for moisture, but they're currently thriving in the unexploited "above the water" area, preying on animals below with their claw.
>>965111wait... Did they even need the organ to branch off to live? If they don't they just leave it on the tail or whatever.
>>962507As one branch of C-Troca emerges to save energy (>>962723), the other branches off to obtain more energy. This branch starts to scavenge from other predatory creatures, using its former claw which has now split down the middle into appendages, as a tool to grab onto floating cadavers to eat.Gen: 10Size: 4 cm
>>963408Their valuable specialized noses further develop. They can now extend them great lengths to obtain even more information or retract them into their sheltering carapace.
>>962905A branch of Hawo develops jellyfish-like hunting tactics with their whiskers, causing them to massively elongate to serve as an electrical trap for any unsuspecting prey.Size: 3cm (main body).Gen: 7
>>965111Unable to compete with the new species in the soot, it develops its massive gape into a passive drift-feeder, much like a whale. Its stinger atrophies from disuse, its mouth and size increase.Size: 4cmGen: 12
>>965254what've you done to my baby
>>965282Just use it as a trampoline to something even cooler. Lame =/= bad. Just look at the Tropca (lame as all fuck) => Topca (amazingy cool imo) >>965137.
>>959390As the climate changes, the QT-Troca finds itself being chased out of it original hunting grounds. It finds itself in the shallower waters of Riena, near to the surface. Here it ends up preying in its less agile cousins, the Topca >>965137 and the Tropca >>963651The QT-Troca has come to develop a shell around its soft body. This reinforcement allows for an even more powerful internal muscle which takes in water in the front hole and pumps it out of the two back-holes. Due to this happening, the QT-Troca becomes less reliant on its fin. This line is now called the Sheltroc.
>>963074with great calcium absorption come hook on your feet! The hawalk-pokie not have little hooks on their feet to help with walking is the shallow shore lines more.>>965111plz ignore this I realize now that moving the reproductive organ won't help them survive the dark ocean.
>>965303The Sheltroc evolves even more protection to decrease the chance of itself dying when ambushing its prey. Since The Sheltroc no longer has fins, it now moves by sucking in water through the hole in front and creating a constant jet behind itself.
>>962315The Khorneli's antennae elongate even further, giving them an even better sense of smell. To keep such easily damaged appendages on their head, they are now reinforced with tissue at the beginning. The tissue is thin and reacts to vibrations, giving the Khorneli a primitive sense of hearing.
>>962359The GB-Troca's smaller claw goes from two to three "fingers" to allow better gripping.
>>965296ya of course you think its cool, man you made it yourself lol>>965137With some predators now targeted itself, Topca behaves themselved to raise itself more about the water. However, it still need the ocean to support itself (breathing, mating, and food) and thus elected to raise the undefended parts of itself only, which is the long tail fin, while the jet stream gradually separated itself and stays in the water. Overtime, the tailfin hardened, and sometime, even helped the animal to be drifted further away due to wind hitting the tail filaments. Its buoeyes of course tries it best to support such movement, and also thickened a bit. However, while the eye is dead, some nerve system in the stalk made their way into the outside world, giving back the animal some primitve eyes.
>>958761As the oceans grow darker the primitive light spots of the Melsii become decidedly less useful. to combat this they develop a "mane" of sensitive antennae, emerging from the back of their armoured heads. Additionally they have grown longer, earning the space for a more complicated digestive system that allows them to increase the amount of nutrients they gain from their food
>>965137Pressure from the Sheltroc (>>965303 , >>965360) causes the Topca to develop a body which is more apt for last-second "leap" escapes upwards from their predator, the Sheltroc. Due to this, they are able to continue surviving as their leap-escapes are much more energy-efficient than the Sheltroc's attack attempts, given that they have to lug around armor, while the Topca develops to become less dense and "lighter" (through larger volume while keeping the same weight).
Is flight allowed? Because I'm on a good path for Zeppelin-like birds here with >>965403.
>>965165Yes, while it can deliver some weak zaps (large enough zap still kill it) it develop a tactic to deliver these thigns continuously using a bigger electronervesystem organ when the prey had been trapped inside its whiskers's range. The whiskers capitalize on that by positioning themselves in a shape of a dome. They prey more the less dies of exhaustion and shock, before two thicker whiskers escort them to the creature's mouth
>>965407It is quite advanced, man, maybe gliding/stone skipping first? or perhaps ask about it as Librarian on Discord
>>965412Yeah, reasonable. I had in mind "long" jumps first and eventually aimless "floating" for some period of time, etc, but I wanted to know if that path was veto'd or not or something like landlubbers.
>>958761mean while some other varieties decide that , rather than have the antennae protrude from the back of the head they should cover the head. as such these melsii grow a large number of them across their heads. unlike their cousins they do not get longer and their size boost is lesser
>>965418While I don't want to shoot anyone's dreams down, but I may have to lock this organism >>965403 from further evolutions for a while.
>>965428Main reason is that their isn't enough breathable oxygen in the air for organisms to breath, and also a lack of lungs or advanced respiratory systems. (From, what I've observed their aren't even gills yet.)
>>965436k I agree I was just wondering why (;
>>965408The Hawongo develops into the Social Hawongo. They use their long whiskers to link to each other and form a massive, inescapable net for their prey. This formation makes them vulnerable to predators though, so when one of them runs into a threat, the others start to collectively pull that segment towards them for a massive, temporary burst of speed.
>>965379their tail gets bigger and spikier for ABSOLUTE PWNAGE
>>965471Sexual selection, I see it totally happening.
>>965254>Atrophy from disuseI didn't know we had disgusting Lamarckists in this thread
>>965149The C-Troca evolves into the SneakaIt survives by building nests with the leftover dead shells of the powerful >>965471 Khornelli, and stealing catches from the weak tendrils of the Hawnogo >>965408, employing its communication to coordinate group efforts. Gen: 11Size: 4cm
>>965360The Sheltroc develops fins at the end of its shell. The fins are covered in the same protective, calcium-based shell as the rest of its body. These two fins can be angled slightly, allowing for improved maneuverability. In some case the Sheltroc is now capable of shooting/jumping out of the water with its whole body, reaching a couple of centimeters above the waterline.
>>957715>>960594The abundance of nutrients and other stuff that was released by the world event trigger much development in chemosynthesis plant, not to mention, the Pararoc, which now grew more lushly in the back and the digestive tract of their symbiote, the Telili. With the water cooling down, most animals migrate to the shore, but most Pararoc and Telili are still found in open ocean and hydrothermal vents. Telili slowed down its metabolism and rarely moves, eating mainly the plant on its back, that had thrive and overgrown due to the water condition, finding a balance between the two.
>>965395The ocean is a big place. part of this bigness is due to the inherently 3D nature of oceans. as such those creatures who cannot take advantage of this 3D element are missing out. to combat this a new variant of the Melsii emerge. their bodies have further elongated and their tails have developed fins. now able to swim through the deeps they have access not only to that food which reaches the seafloor, but also to all that which floats in the higher reaches, allowing them to experience a rather significant growth spurt as their menu expands. additionally the shallower depths are decidedly less dark than the sea floor, making their eyespots more effective.This new species of worryingly large scavengers/herbivores is called the Melscorp[spoilers]Merry Christmas Nuke[/spoilers]
>>965471>>965161The horned Khornelli and the large-spike Khornelli cross-breed, causing the KING'S KHORNELLI to emerge, as a hybrid of the two, which via its enhanced weaponary, gains massive sexual edge over its competitors, furthering its spread, much like a peacock (of aggression).
>>956975Xpryums are found in many inbetween places now due to its elasticity to live on both photosynthesis and also chemosynthesis.. Whether its the farthest the shore can go, or the cliff just before the chasm that host the hydrothermal vents, these plants twirl itself on rocks and hard sand, alternating its method of produing energy
>>960237The Halikot develops a proper jaw at the same time as its bone-/calcium-structure on top of its skull grows into a plate, serving both as minor protection as well as the upper teeth of the animal.As it moves into shallower waters its pigments changes.
>>965533The King's Khornelli, from sexual selection, now (temporarily) grows massive additional horns. These horns appear right before mating season. They are used for carrying around defeated, impaled, rivals, to attract even more mates and prove dominance. The additional horns fall off soon after mating season is over.
>>955664Being a plant that relies on Photosynthesis, its only natural that most of Bryock spores would grew in the clearer water of the nearshore with better solar lightning.However, that place is almost devoid of shelters. Wave crashing into the area regularly break down whatever rock the shore has, breaking them down into sands after years and years of abrasion. Bryock plants had hard time grew in such open spaces, as it needed a hard, rocky surface to latch on, and not to mention, after the outburst of nutrients and other materials, they become quite a rough plant as well.So what happen next is then, these plants then grew above their dead, hardened, comrades instead. These rocklike objects are perfect for Bryock to grew upon, and they slowly pile up in the near shore. Maybe in the future they can grew big enough to became wave barriers like corals?
wonder when OP will tell us who lived and who died.
>>965533the horns grow spikes for ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM PWNADGE
>>959175Some of these animals found themselves attracted to the greenery of the depths. They gradually develop harder skin against the elements, and better sensory organ at the base of their tail. The nature of this organ are revealed to be electrosensors like you'd find in most marine animals to differentiate the currents and the presence of nearby marine animals. They are helped by its eyes, which became bigger in the darker place, but also the beak to chew and cut harder plant matters. To reproduce, these animals still shot both their gametes into the water, but prefer to do it nearby the jutting rocks of the deeper oceans, as they are most likely to stick into that place.
>>965541The halikot's snout lengthens, as it now preys on Hawnogo's and GB-Trocas
>>962951>>965592>SOMEBODY HELP ME SAVE THE HAWALK-POKIE. THESE ARE MY BABIESSS. NOOOOOOO DON'T DIEEEEEEEE.>I am triggered by the fact that there are other hawalk-pokiesWhat the fuck, man
>>965598 was joke post i'm sorry pretend I don't exist i won't post any more
>>965383Due to a mutation the GB-Troca develops a second arm. It now lives next to shorelines, moving about primarily by pulling itself forward on different bryum plants. It has changed its diet, becoming primarily herbivorous, made possible by its complex feeding organs. Due to this change its bodymass and primary organs lump up beneath the "head".
>>965524The Melscorp's hind limbs become larger and become more flipper-like, allowing them to be used for movement and manoeuvring. The other limbs grow longer and develop and additional joint, allowing them to be used to latch onto large objects (often including their food)
>>965721living amongst the Bryum, the Grabroca that survive have been becoming more and more camouflaged. Their useless fin has changed into filaments/membranes that mimics plants. The Grabroca has particularly found a taste for the pods of the Bryum Colonies >>963044
>>965769>>965721*sighs* I knew exactly what are you trying to do, but I also knew that it would be useless trying to stop it...
>>965769I'm almost 90% certain I know what you're going for, and I haven't yet determined if I'm gonna exterminatus the shit out of the poor critters.
>>965593To support its head, the Halikot grows larger flippers. It also changes pigments, a result of sexual selection. Due to its powerful jaw and increase in size, it had also now started taking on the sheltroc >>965507These more predatory Halikots are now called Ragalikots.
>>966074Through its sheltroc diet, it the Ragalikot develops powerful molars, allowing it to crack open all other shelled creatures like a nutcracker. For example, the slow >>965585 King's Khornelli, by gradually cracking away its horns.
>>965731The melscorp's head carapace becomes equipped with blades to defend itself from the Regalikots and other predators by burrowing under them and attacking their soft underbelly or by trashing side to side to ax opponents.
>>965769In order to achieve a more stealthy camouflage, the Grabroca's body elongates.
>>965769Some other Grabroca develop two additional sets arms due to a mutation.
>>966201The extra arms start accommodating themselves and switching positions. There are two frontal, claw like arms that help it grab things, two arms that help it have a better grip, and the last two arms (not pictured) are on it's back, and they help the creature swim by kicking the air. They are now called grabchoca
>>966258Lib, its time to pull the plug on these guys
>>966273I'll save them from becoming grabarfs
>>966258they grow giant dicks.
>>966356Anon plsToo silly and derailingRefer to OP
>>966376srry>>966356normal sized dicks
>>966342You are only helping them!
>>966475I was going for an underwater bird aesethic
>>966394Their sexual organs go through changes that allow them to work better in an underwater enviroment. They develop corkscrew penises
>>965313fuck it no ones evolved these guys in a while so i'll go again.The hawalk-pokie begin having ""ring orgies"" of three or more instead of mating with just two. I wanted to make them stay together for life after mating because thats cute but it wouldn't make sense srry 4 bad art
>>966193>>966201>>966258>>966356>>966394>>966557>>966607Long term crossbreeding among the Grab-species and the development of specialized sexual organs and gametes caused a wider genetic diversity and caused mutations to be more common. This, alongside the addition of the ever growing environmental pressure to the mix resulted in a new species which not only inherited the more beneficial traits of it's parents, but also had undergone changes that allowed it to thrive on it's habitat. The first change being a more refined mimicry of the algae colours. Another notable change is their long segmented body, which although not very quick, allows a slow metabolism which helps it survive long periods without much food.
>>965524Merry Christmas to you too.
>>961952Here's a base species I also attempted to make.
>>967769Good to know.. Any meaningful contribution to this thread?
>>962830the alla continues to develops its sensory organs even further, as its entire skin becomes heat sensetive, and its already existing organs becoming more fine tuned. it also devlopes a pair of touch sensetive antenna capable of detecting vibratoins in the water
>>958919The Hawee develop sensitive antennae along their fins to compensate for the decreased effectiveness of their light spots. Additionally their jet pumps grow longer and develop a level of flexibility that allows them to be pointed in practically any direction and grasp things (allowing them to hold themselves still, or hide in plant life)
>>966871finally some one set this abomonatoin in the right directoin. hopefully the future aint completely shit for water parrot (pls on't fuck it up, actually kind of like the water parrot easthetic)the Grabchoca develops simple webbing/fins across its claws to allow it to swim short distances without assistance.during mating season the males devlope flamboyant speckles across there plumage to attract mates, males with the most interesting/attractive patters attract the most mates, causing a biological arms race to devlop the most pretty plumage
>>968583the Alla joins the evolutoinary arms race for the best sesory organs with the >>968601as a result it begins to devlop nostrils to detect chemichle changes in the water, as well as devloping antenna capable of detecting elctromagnetic waves
>>966106The Ragalikot's head becomes both more aerodynamic and more muscular, giving it better maneuverability and a stronger bite that can kill a Khorneli in one strike. It has also developed an immunity to selenium and teeth that cannot be damaged by a Khorneli's spikes, allowing it to eat as much of the slow creatures as it wants. It is now known as the Cruncher Ragalikot.
>>965471Every now and then, Khorneli are born with a defect in their spike-producing genes, leaving them with no spikes. While they are much faster than their spikeless brethen, these Khorneli have never left offspring before due to not being seen as a worthy mate. However, now that the Cruncher Ragalikot >>968872 has developed a way to eat Khorneli species, these spikeless creatures have often been more succesful at making more of themselves, not due to becoming more appealing to other Khorneli but due to simply being the only survivors of a Cruncher Ragalikot's attack, therefore only having other spikeless to breed with. The only spikes that remain on their bodies are on their tails. These animals do not possess enough PWNAGE to be considered true Khorneli, and as such are now known as Haaga. Also, their mouth membranes become bigger, enhancing their hearing and letting them detect Ragalikots before they arrive.
The disgusting grabroca, through their favorite methods of procreation, crossbreeding and incest, have managed to create one of the most foul, brutal, degenerated and mutilated species ever made in an evolution game: the Grabomination. It kills prey by freaking it out with it's monstrous appearance.It doesn't die from the illogicality of it's body because death fears being near it.It's reproduction methods are too terrible even for /d/ and /b/.It is the Grabomination, and the species that drives this pile of bullshit extinct will get bragging rights for defeating the final boss of Rienia's primordial oceans.
>>966738because they don't really use their head eyes they lose them. If they can't see >>969031 then it can't hurt them. They don't use the advantage to kill it though because they are almost herbivores and don't hunt for meat
these two things share a common ancestor
>>969031I am already ashamed of myself for making this, but I cannot retcon it. The species of this world need a shared enemy, and I have made that enemy.
>>969060why tho? Librarian are probably going to purge them all, all the way from that ugly face started sprouting. Keeping them alive with more and more edition are just painful to watch and nothing is to be gained from that.
>>969072Anti-Brafians, the whole lot of youThis is like another Shoah!
>>969072I see your point.All specimens of >>969031 die because Death mans up and finally destroys what was long overdue. Or not, if anyone wants their creature to fight this monstrosity for bragging rights.Is this fine?
>>969085can I the hawalk-pokie fight them? They can't see them so they won't die instantly and their poison is helpful.
>>969088Sure, anyone who wants it can actually go fight these things.
>>969113I haven't thought about that. Just do what you think you should do in this situation. Maybe roll dice for what happens, or just write a story, ordinary something else. I'm sorry if this sounds half-assed, it's already night where I live and my sleep-deprived brain can no longer think hard enough to devise battle mechanics.
>>969160>ordinary something elseautocorrected from "or something else"
>>969169>A brave hawalk-pokie approaches the thing.....>The hawalk-pokie stings it injecting venom>the monsters seems unaffected>the hawalk-pokie keeps stinging injecting venom and cummies with each thrust>the thing.... dies and the hawalk-pokies are the koolest kids now
>>968872the Sneaka evolves to be able to now exploit Ragalikots as well with its more developed fins and primitive thumbs for gripping and agility.Their new tactic in their arsenal involves having a group of them stalk a Ragalikot, and once it has done all of the hard cruncher work, to mess with its eyes with its own through a flurry of colors, causing them to flail in panic from the sudden Kaleidoscope, allowing for another troupé of Sneakas to steal the weakened, ready-to-eat catch.
>>969233The new Sneaka evolves from this: >>965506 and is Gen 11, size: 4cm
>>969233this guy seems like he's gonna turn into a chuthulu.
>>969233The Sneaka gain crude camouflage being able to roughly change to the colour of their surroundings at will. Even bad camoflage works when animals have bad eyes. They're now called Nin-Sneaka and sneak up on their prey.
>>969269Following its camouflage development, it can now go semi-translucent at will.
>>969302*Cough* gen 13 *cough*
>>969302The nin-sneaka gain easily controlled mussels allowing them to have the same texture as what they're hiding in
>>965507Some Sheltroc move to even shallower water. Here they develop legs due to a mutation giving them what's actually misshapen claws. Additionally they develop two cavities at the ends of their tails. Within these cavities are receptors capable of "Smelling" substances in the water. These Sheltroc now spend their time, when they are not traveling or hunting, walking around on the sea floor. If they "Smell" or see potential prey they then shoot up from the sea floor, crashing into their prey and crushing them with their claws.
>>969801eyyy hawalk-pokie also live in shallow water(coast lines) They can be friends yaaaay
>>969820Or, They can be dinner
>>969836n1gg4 th3 h4w4lk-p0k13 r3kt th3 f1n4l b0ss
>>966106Developing next to its relative, the Ragalikot, the southern Halikot has filled the niche of small, pack-organised hunters. Instead of growing much larger, it has instead evolved a more powerful back fin for more speed. Its pigment has also changed, a result of sexual selection. The "Southern" part of the name refers to were on the planet they are mostly found and originate from.
>>965541An offshoot of the same strain as >>969886 these Halikot, found in the South west, have come to evolve a different pigment and more herbivorous diet, although they still hunt.This one:>>969886is supposed to have evolved from this one:>>965541My bad.
>>965541Evolving in the Eastern part of the planet, the Eastern Halikot has come to take the role of its cousin, the Ragalikot. This is due to few Ragalikots being found on this part of the planet.These Halikots have evolved a heavy armor. At the same time, the back fins have morphed into one single powerful fins. The Eastern Halikot hunts by quite slowly picking up speed, eventually crashing into whichever prey they spot. When the prey is dazed from the impact, the Halikot bites down, finishing it off. The armor on the head gives the Halikot a more powerful bite, but still nowhere near as powerful as that of the Cruncher Ragalikot.
>>969302>>969304Because folks haven't been keeping the best track of generations, I should mention that this creature is in Generation 15, and Gen 15 will be the official hard cut off for how advanced and individual species can and will get per thread.
>>970337just a suggestion, I think you should use your authoritative [b] Bold [/b] text when doing something like this man, give it some finality and some visibility you know?
>>970572I actually didn't know I could do that. Neat
With the 10 million year era of polluted oceans from the Hydrothermal Vents sudden and erratic rupturing in the seafloor. The world's biosphere now gradually returns to normal.Attached here and in my immediate next post are the survivors and up to date phylogeny chart of all the organisms of Rienia thus far.If you don't see an organism on here it is because it was canonically unable to survive long-term throughout the world event, or after the world event ended. (OOC: Like 90% of the excluded organisms were the Grabroca which were silly, and will not be discussed anymore)Also, a notice that from this point forward I will be locking any organisms from further advancements beyond the 15th Generation. This is to prevent an organism from being over evolved/overspecialized/overpowered. Now then, I'm off for the holidays, so I'll probably be returning to /qst/ around the time that this thread has been archived shut down. Happy Holidays, and I'll be back with the next thread in 2-3 days.
>>963320The frontal Melsii develops "fingers" on it's rear legs, which are better at walking on sand than the spike-feet they previously had. They also now have pieces of carapace on their back legs, shaped in such a way to help them glide along the seafloor better.
>>971101yaaaay!!it didn't go extinct! the alla lives to delop onward! happy days!!>>968610the alla devlops a venom around its lips and several small sharp teeth using the remaining sulpher and over chemchles in the water from the hydrophermal vent incident. allowing it to put its sensory organs that would have once been used to find hydrophermal vents, to a more agressive functoin.
based on the chart >>971101 i'd say the hawalk-pokie (with beaks and tail dicks) are at gen 15 and cannot be evo'd anymore
>>971365Yeah I realized I flubbed on the part of the chart with the Hawalk-pokie. As of right now they should actually be Generation 14 at its most complex state.
>>968893The Haaga develop additional limb segments on their legs, making themselves faster.Their legs now consist of three segments, one of which is under their body shell.
>>971374The whole hawalk-pokie tree is kinda confusing because i'm a retard. Sorry bout that. I made an evo that I thought they need to survive dark oceans but they didn't need it so I tried to take it back......I was just being really dumb.Will they be able to go past gen 15 after the next world event?
>>971381>>970337>Gen 15 will be the official hard cut off for how advanced and individual species can and will get per thread.>per thread.No, you'll have to wait for the next thread.
>>971381The best answer I give you for why I'm gonna cut off evolutions after Gen 15 for an individual organisms is because I'm trying to encourage a evenish spread of attention give to many organisms instead of just one in particular.That way we can avoid..."incidents" such as certain organisms that have arised in my past renditions of EvoGames.
>>971363The heat focused development of this animals continue. The heat sensing organs on this animals are actually related to the animal's own ability to be active (high activity = high metabolism = higher reflexes/reaction time) and as the animal evolve with an extreme environtment, actually uses the ability inwards as a mean to regulate ITS OWN body temperature more directly to combat the colder water, but they needed more energy to do that.Like a steam engine that needs to be hot before being used, the Allsa is actually a very rabid predator, using all its senses to find differences in the water, and pursue the prey. However, this means that it mostly strikes moving animals or those with currently active metabolism (digesting food). To keep it heat sensing organ active, it needs to keep moving and keep active. The animal needs to sleep in warmer waters, so that when they are inactive due to slumbering, their own body temperature and heat sensing organ isnt falling when their metabolism is at its lowest.Here is the animal with the correct gen and updated size, which I can write off as had increased it slowly during its evolution progress. If you cant keep the score in the image, we can at least tell it in the descriptions>>970581>To facilitate the author-driven nature of quests, /qst/ differs significantly from other boards in that the OP of a thread is considered the quest's author, and has some basic text formatting abilities: [b], [i], and color tags [red], [green], and [blue].

This includes meta-threads. from the mod sticky
okay boys, look like we ran out of omage replies. next thread!!
Holy shit we did hit image limit. Unfortunately, I'm not at my computer to actually start the next thread.Sit tight folks.
what.. this place had an image limit? shietBut its good tho, Im in the middle of cracking an evolution at >>963421 >>963438 but I didnt really quite understand the effect of its mechanism to the world.. can someone care to explain and help me shoot ideas to improve it?would the next thread be Janus or still Rienia?
rip in pasta.lets breifly discuss the next thread, and what happened in this one.
So, to anyone thats still here, whats your favorite animal/evo that you didnt make?I like the plants, the Bryock Chimeneys is one of them, because in my head, it fit a niche that the environtment at that point needed.For the animals, its definitely when the Hawalk Pokie begin to have the ability to shoot out their gametes from their tail, cuz its only goes more exciting from there,,as well as the GB-Troca and C-Troca because of their eyes. I actually love them dearly, and I dont think they are derailing at all. It definitely looks like those deadend species that we saw in fossils, like that lizard that flies with its legs. Thankfully the animal quickly bounce back with everyone's help
>>966074>>971447the halikot of course, its just looks cool
This whole thing has derailed, can we start a new thread?
>>971644vere planning on starting a new thread back on janus as soon as op (librarian) gets to it. also yeah, when an evo thread reaches its image limit its pretty much ded. just keep an eye on the catalog
>>971644I'm out until tomorrow morning at my earliest convenience. Can't drop the new thread today.Keep an eye on the catalog, or check the Discord linked in OP >>952839
>>971644When the image limit is hit, it's time for setting discussion and joking.Looking back at the moon description from the beginning of the thread, Rienia (this moon) seems to be made of much denser stuff than Janus.Just something that I found interesting.
>>971644>derailedhere goes that word again. The image limit is hit, bossque.. also, just asking, you seemed to be mostly posting from phone, what app did you use?>>971736Yeah, the planet seemed to be more ready for life, and the fact that most Biology Gods are already warmed up by the previous thread just set things faster.
>>971795I actually joined on this thread, hopefully I didn't too crappy of a job (I created the alla an attempted to fix the Grabocco)
>>971810Oh welcome then. Hope you enjoy the game hereThe Alla is quite something as has heat sensing organ, but almost all invetebrates here on earth were all cold blooded, so I thingk it was the sign that we had to take the whole ecosystem here as more unique and can utilize a unique system to maintain body heat.
>>971898yeah, I'm a little proud of the little fella. hopefully on the next return to reina I can further adapt it.also, op I'm not sure if you can see this but how long until next thread??
>>971973I think Librarian was saying sometime within the next few days after holiday stuff.
Alright folks I got a strawpoll for you boys and females(male) to respond to. It's in reference to how many organisms I'll be providing for you guys to work with when we return to Moon World Janus next thread.You have 24 hours to respond to it. >>971736Rienia is a much heavier world in comparison to it's sister world Janus even though it's 2/3's the size of Janus. This is because Janus is a world that whose density and mass are similar to Earth's composition; while Rieina has a much larger iron core and silicate mass that makes the work world somewhat similar to the moon, Ganymede in our solar system.
>>972999Dammit, didn't bother to post the strawpoll. I'm and idiot.http://www.strawpoll.me/11951882
Did we archive the last thread on suptg?
>>973471yup. Search for the tag "Janus" and it'll be the only thread you find
so...next thread...I need like a count down clock for that
>>973659Check back around Midnight Central Standard Time
ok. lets find something to do in that time
>>974336Try the other evogame?Tbh this is the comfiest for me.. The other felt too simple and straightforward for my autismo..
ok fellas, he said the OTHER evo thread>>959161has no planet details but its better then nothing
we passed midnight, now what?
op, I'm worried, has anything happened to you?
>>977515get the discord chat, Naga Saki, thats where most of the convo happened
