So uh I decided to make an evo game. anyway here's how to play + some rules:You open up one of the creatures. either from the main 3 posts that will be up soon or from previous peoples evolutions. and edit them in whatever editing program you prefer. Put it into a PNG file and upload to the threadOnly small and gradual changes can be made to the creatures.Please don't evolve the same creature in a row . All the creatures need some chance at evolutionNo species will go extinct unless I say so or through an extinction eventMake sure all the evolutions are realistic and plausable.As for one more rule . as of right now you cannot evolve outside of the oceans this will eventually changeWelcome to the planet of Xeolea guys
FlapSmall herbivorous creatures that are able to have some mobility in the ocean using their large fins. Though they normally glide along the shallow seafloor eating the glob plants
Lur:Carnivorus worm like creatures that mostly serve as ambush predators that exists underneath the sand in wait to feel the vibrations coming from unsuspecting flaps and will strike
Globsmall plants that have rooted themselves to the sea floors of the shallow waters
alright that should be it. uh good luck. I'm new at this so
>>4160101i evolve the creatures in MS paint to be low quality and formatted for evo games.Also im proud of myself. no dick creatures. good on you nongent. you did ok today. did real good.
>>4160132just gonna say thanks for this . ~~sorry for my error earlieralso this is still the gm am on phone
>>4160114Sacrifices must be made. Some of the Lur have evolved to no longer have a mouthThis new and inspirational species are referred to as Lurr
>>4160119The glob's small spore-ejection site on the right side begins, in some individuals, to sprout a flap-like structure which fills with highly-nutritious stick fluid as well as spores; this is a desirable "target" for herbivores, and encourages them to cover their faces and bodies in spores and then to spread them over a wider area as they swim away.
>>4160109The flaps body becomes more streamlined, and their teeth evolve to construe a stubby tendriled gaping maw
>>4160114Some Lur evolve sensitive hair like protrusions to better detect vibrations in the surface above and around them
>>4160434I hope this works
>>4160499its pretty good . dont worry ill point it out if it cant be done. anyway guys ima go to sleep. if things have progressed enough in the morning i might throw something at yall
ill probbably make the current evolution chart as well as a map maybe. XD if this picks up
>>4160434Some Lur gain a tapered tail to burrow deeper and easier into the ground
actually quick thing before i go off to sleep someone asked for non transparent on the server so and something about the lines. i cant fix the lines but here's with background of the starting species
hope these are a tiny bit better if yall wanna use this instead of the original image. either works i guess
>>4160119Some globs have begun to take in sand and other inorganic detritus into themselves, slightly camouflaging them and making them a bit more unpleasant to eat.
>>4160238some globs have an overly active flap generation which, in conjunction with it being at the sight of its spore-production leads to an internal cloning of itself. These globs combine many bulbs in one and their roots no longer can guarantee them to stick to one spot, so they get dragged around by stronger currents, colonizing new places in the world.
>>4160145losing its mouth turns out to be a real debilitating development for the Lurr, and so soon its species cannot survive the mobile lifestyle due to a lack of nutrients. They become sedentary, residual teeth providing a kind of rooting. They get nutrients by filtering the water through their one remaining orafie, the anus, right into its digestive tract.
Since losing it's mouth. It probably doesn't eat meat. Perhaps it eats plants, or perhaps nothing at all. But it seems get eaten by other carnivore of it's own kind. To help this Lurr to move faster it is given a scrunchy 3 ribbed section near it's upper body. Allowing it to extend out more and inch worm faster.
An assortment of globs root themselves into the ground. The roots split into smaller roots and become slightly more complex so as to get more nutrients and to keep itself securely stuck in the ground. To get more sunlight it develops a small sky blue bead at the center of the crown of the sphere of it's head. It's function is to refine sunlight absorption. It is a gloub.
>>4160581Some Lurr develop fine hairs to help sense currents and help them find prey
>>4160577Some Flaps develop scales on the back of their fins and body to better protect themselves from Lur
Some flaps adapt develop 2 smaller tusk like teeth at the bottom of their maw so they may be able to collect more vegetation.The ends of their wings become frayed and start to curve inward so that they have less resistance in the air and are more capable of turning faster during flight. However the frayed wing ends make it harder for it maintain flight for too long.
>>4160837The creature's jaws reappear, but they no longer serve their original purpose: the upper one had turned into a spike used to penetrate the skin of Globs, and the lower has grown larger and enveloped the head of the creature in a protective skull.
>>4160905>>4160238Due to the Flap's spines, the Glob's spores had a hard time getting dislodged off the creature, and ended up sprouting right then and there. Time will tell if this is a start to symbiosis, or parasitism.
>>4160905An offshoot of scaley flap develop a longer tail to better maneuver the oceans of Xeolea.
>>4160810the internal cloning continues now even including roots for those clone globs near enough to the bottom anchoring most of them securely to the bottom, a clear advantage to the tumor like growth is more surface area on the mass even if them leeching nutrition from each other and fighting for light dont let them take advantage of it, stunting there growth with the first blob having a clear advantage still nearly never grow to full size
>>4160825The Lurr evolves to sacks near it's new mouth, these organs take excess filterednutrients and turn them into a paste that it can later suck out of the sacks in case there is no food.
>>4161087Being sedentary, the Lurr is incapable of escaping from predators. Thus, a different defensive strategy is required. It's stomach becomes highly muscular, allowing it to "sneeze" it's contents out at great speeds, deterring anything that would try to prey on the creature.It's dual sacks also migrate downwards, to make them less likely to be damaged.
>>4160114The parasitic Microlur is much smaller than it's ancestors, allowing it to clandestinely latch onto it's host with it's barbed jaw.
>>4161087Other Lurrs have developed the ability to evert their anus inside-out, highly increasing the rate at which they absorb food thanks to the much more permeable tissue.The brown strands are parasitic Microlurs, which have hooked onto the anus to provide maximum discomfort.
>>4160119To reduce the amounts of nutrients needed to survive some glob become visibly smaller then before
alright goood morning people im going to just start charting out the evolution lines. and will be back in a bit
hey guys one down the flap line
have your lurs
>>4161180 You forgot >>4160114
last one anyway feel free to get back to evolving yall. though note I may close off the stationary lur (i don't think yall have given a different name so ima just call it that) . not yet though but since its a bit far ahead compared to everything else
>>4161192did not. its on top of the sheet. since its the base species?unless ya meant to link glob's which I've just added
>>4161198Sorry I meant >>4161099 and copied the wrong post number
>>4161203oh whoops thanks illl fix it in a momment
>>4161196The lumpy self-cloning globs evolved from the first flappy one.
>>4161213>>4161219frick wrong place one more try
>>4160884With strong anchoring points, some gloubs begin to stretch higher and higher towards the sunlight high above the seas. They do this with long stocks and spongey, gas-filled bulbs
>>4160927After mating, the Tusk Flaps will merge into one, allowing them to fertilize and produce young constantly.
>>4160541Some tapered Lur grow centipede legs to move across the sea floor faster
>>4160238Thanks to growing more target these globs are even more attractive to herbivore and thus have more offspring
>>4160589Craggy globs have slowly started to gain more cohesive shells, letting them better blend in with the sea floor and making them even harder to eat.
>>4160957In order to compensate for the weight of the globs some flaps develop larger stronger fins
>>4161273As the shell of the Craggy Glob became thicker, the plant began to perform photosynthesis mainly through it's tentacles, and as such they've increased in size greatly.
hello to the players right now. while I'm setting up events here's the map. This world is on the colder side of things with the icecaps covering two large continents as of right now which may change in the future. The current life lives around the smaller landmasses in the center. as for other details on the planet. the planet has two moons one smaller one and one decently sized one which create tides on the planet. Its in a star system which has one star. and ill probably bring up the other planets in the system later on.
also sorry if this is a crap map. I'm not the best at drawing maps XD enjoy that though
>>4161282The root network of the Globs has begun to interweave with the nervous system of the Flaps. By releasing neurotransmitter chemicals when exposed to light or darkness, the Globs can influence their host's behavior, and make it favor lighter areas.
>>4161282As the parasitic globs begin to infest greater and greater areas of the strong fin flaps, the flap itself compensates with still stronger fins; it also requires more and more nutrition to sustain its parasite and its greater musculature, leading it to take up omnivory.
>>4160950The spike-skulled lurr's descendants grow longer, more muscular, and their spikes acquire barbs for securing prey they stab. These grapple lurrs taken to living on or near globs, and laying in wait to ambush the flaps which come to feed on them; with their tails, they hold on and pull their prey in to constrict to death, or to just stab over and over until they die.
>>4161519did. you just cirumvent needing eyes by using the plants XD. i mean its fine . but that's interesting. also it appears the plants are one of the more dominant organisms. but question is does this go on the flap tree or the glob tree or both
>>4161543As the insides of Flaps are much less gooey than those of Globs, the Spikeskull can't just suck them out like it used to; so it develops a long tongue that can be deployed from it's spike and be used to "scoop" some innards up into it's mouth(which is not in fact in the spike, but simply directly above it)>>4161545I'd say it's both; the globs evolved roots that penetrate deeper into the skin and secrete neurotransmitters, and the Flap developed a neural cluster in it's ass to interpret these signals.
>>4161520>>4161519The obvious superiority of the sensory neuro-globs means that, before long, they have almost completely replaced the traditional globs as the parasite/symbiote of the omnivore flaps as well.
just gonna put up a warning extinction event incoming I will update our trees afterwords
Volcanic activity has been increasing all over the planet. Leading to increasing acidity of the oceans and ash blowing out the sun for a long period of time . This ends up disrupting a large portion of the ecosystem as glob plants are unable to get the sunlight they need. Global temperatures end up dropping more than they usually do for a bit but in the long run will start increasing.Hello guys. i rolled this event a little while ago. so anyway rules So everyone can roll up to 5 1d10's for any species of their choice. any species that is not rolled for will be guaranteed a extinction (minus. the three base species which for now will remain the same as of this moment. i probably wont remove them for at least this thread and the next honestly)Some creatures will have a better chance of surviving then others . which i will determine for myselfif you wish to roll just link the species in your post with the rolls along with the number to each creature. Multiple rolls can be done for the same creature if you want to try to save one over another.
>>4161743Can each player roll to save as many creatures and plants as they want, or just one each? Like, I get we get 5 rolls each, but can we do each roll for a different species?
>>4161749each roll can be for a different species if you'd like. or you can have multiple for one
we dont have enough players to be like only one species per player. also another note your roll does not have to be of a species you've worked on can be any

alright good morning im going to tally up the rolls and see who lives and dies am currently in the middle of something though so this might take little bit o time
>>4163071why do extinction just based on dice? why not adaptations and stuff?
>>4163077we might have a little bit of both. I'm somewhat experimenting with things . Sorry this is kinda my first evo game and i guess second thread on quest
>>4163082Well I, for one, am excited to see where it goes.
As the skies clear many species have gone extinct in the disaster. many of the non parasitic species of plants have gone extinct on the world. onnly two other remaining the shelled plans and the large numerous ones. While the flaps and lures seem to have pulled through in this hard time to come out better than before. How will the creatures now adapt to the warming world. only time will telalright so i have the list here now of everyone who survived>>4161519 parasitic glob + flap10- pass>>4161344 Craggy glob- 1 -fail 8 pass>>4161099 parasitic microlur- 1 fail 1 fail 7 pass >>4161101 Other lurrs 5 fail 9 pass>>4160978 long tailed scaley flap -7 pass>>4161661 Omnivore flap 3 fail 6 pass 7 pass>>4161259 centipede lur 8 pass>>4160434 hair lur 8 pass>>4161252 fused flap 9 pass >>4160950 spike lur 5 fail 8 pass>>4161067 tumour glob 7 passRemoved the ones that failed the check from the list. You can evolve any of these plus the base species. go top for descriptions but here's non transparent image links>>4160573>>4160577>>4160581
ima be back with an updated map as well at some point maybe not today though but feel free to evolve. ill work on that and the new charts
>>4160434>>4163129In the new, colder seas, those hair lurs whose random mutations let to out-of-control sensory filaments found that their thick coats and fatter bodies also served to help keep them warm. Behold: a shaggy lur!
>>4163172Or, rather, the colder conditions that I guess have just come to an end. Poor phrasing on my part.
>>4163217ii mean they could be in the northern or Southern seas. i was gonna say XD but i don't know how much prey creatures exist there yet
i mean near the ice caps
>>4163172All that hair makes breathing through osmosis quite difficult, so the Shaggy Lurs develop a lung from a chamber near the end of their digestive tract. If something other than water and oxygen gets in, it is capable of "sneezing" it out to prevent clogging.Also, it's fur gets darker due to tiny flakes of volcanic ash getting stuck in it.
I have the idea of turning the Omnivore Flaps into scavengers but not a clue on how to draw it
shaggy lurs are adorable but im going to give a light reminder. please don't do the same creature imidiatly after it was just evolved try to space it out with at least one different creature. this has happened before so just reminder.
>>4161067Globlankets form from the continued expansion of tumour globs, as they become perhaps the dominant photosynthetic organism across huge swathes of shallow-water seafloor.
>>4161520In order to survive during the long period there was insufficient sunlight the globs growing on the Omnivorous Flap copied another Glob evolution by growing the sunlight refining beads the gloubs had ( >>4160884)
>>4161519The internal wiring of the glob becomes more and more refined: it's surface becomes sectioned into separate "facets", allowing it to determine the amount of light in set directions rather than just overall. The Flap's nervous system meanwhile becomes more adaptive, capable of connecting to the Globs no matter how many and where they grow, and conjuring a simple image based on the globs's inputs.As it's main sensor is on it's butt, the Flap has twisted it's mouth into a more favorable position, and learned to swim backwards.
>>4163267Extra globs grow on the wings.
>>4161067Due to the cancerous growth of the Tumor Glob, some specimen suffer a genetic defect that forces them to replicate cells inside others, turning the tumorous bulbs from which it would normally spread, into swelling orbs, ready to burst at any moment from the sheer amount of cell-material amassing inside.
>>4160950Some Spike Lur have taken up tunneling to eat Glob roots
>>4163389i mean. the species was already a tunneling species. i don't know if the spike our were the ones who stopped tunneling but they originally lived beneath the sand
>>4163396The spike ones definitely live above the ground, they move by inchworming and you can't really inchworm underground
>>4163410not with that attitude, you can't
>>4163410>>4163396That is why I removed the ribbed section from it's previous evolution (>>4160837)). Guess I could have been a bit more clear
>>4161344During the period of blocked sunlight, some craggy globs (already inefficient photosynthizers) began to parasitic their more-efficient neighbours. This is the strangler glob!
>>4161099Some parasitic microlurs have begun to parasitize the increasingly-massive tumor globs, hollowing out chambers in their ever-expanding bulk and laying clusters of eggs. They have jaws adapted to chewing up plant matter, and cryptic colouration.
here yall go for the globs. I'm just having the parasitic ones stay on the flap line because its sort of just become an integral part of the flaps
>>4163267>>4163298this is an invalid evolution line which i am not including in this chart because they are a divergence of an extinct species. the present species is the omnivore flaps with the lightspot plants
>>4163812and these were linked to the form prior
read above for the reason the two most recent evos weren't included in this chart
>>4161661Extra globs began to grow on the wings and body of the omnivorous globs in an effort to harvest more photosynthetic energy, but it was never enough. As the infestations grew more violent, the omnivorous globs took to grazing the fields of globlankets, and scavenging the bodies of dead animals by scaring off smaller predators; consequently, they grew larger as well.(Brought in elements of >>4163251 and >>4163298 for a legitimate evolutionary line)
lur line here
alright all lines are updated I will check back in probably tomorrow
>>4163867Minor correction, but grapple lurs (>>4161543 and >>4161606 ) descended from spike lurs ( >>4160950 ). They're extinct now anyway, though, so whatevs.
>>4163874ill fix it next time I update the chart
>>4163775Also, I don't think these guys went extinct yet, unless I missed something. Some of them are just strangling other globs now, but the photosynthetic sort could also be around?
>>4163882oh whoops yeah they alive ok hold on ima just fix both of these
Glob line fixed
>>4163294Is this guy still a herbivore?
>>4163941belive so . the other ones were omnivores the one still in the default format for flaps
>>4163947Then let's give that streamlined and very visual sumbitch something to seek out and snatch up!>>4160119Basal globs were increasingly in competition with their mutated, tumorous cousins, and at risk of predation by grazers, root-eaters, and parasitic strangler globs. For that reason, many have taken to a less sedentary life. These globs eventually detach from their root systems to float up to the surface of the water and out to sea. Though they merely drift where tides and winds carry them, they spread their pollen far and wide, either by bursting on their own or by attracting (with red, pollen-filled buds or with their strong scent) the attention of flaps who burst them and cover themselves in the pollen when they come to feed.
>>4163259The Globlankets grow stronger roots to prevent the Tunnel Lur from eating them
>>4160950Further adapting to life on the ocean floor the Spike Lur grow a series of light sensitive spots on their body
>>4163389While some spike lurs simply take to preying younger or weaker-rooted globlankets, others like the sabertoothed spike lur (pictured left) return to the predatory ways of their ancestors, snatching up low-swimming flaps and their herbivorous cousins as ambush predators.
>>4160978Some long tailed scaley flaps grow a slightly shorter tail with a weighted club like appendage at the end to defend themselves with
>>4161252Some fused flaps evolve in such a way that, once mated and fused, they metamorphose further. Their central membrane grows wide and stronger, and their mouths grow wider and shift down to the bottom of their body. This allows them to scoop up globs on the go, either floating about the sea or off of the sea floor, without stopping.Curiously, their young, prior to fusion, still look almost exactly like the ancestral tusk flaps.
>>4160978Using their even longer tail the Prehensile Tal Flap can grab floating Globs with their tail and bring the plants to their mouth
>>4161259To prevent being attacked from behind the Centipede Lur grows a small needle from their tail
>>4164994* Prehensile TAIL Flap not prehensile Tal Flap
never said good morning . im up I've been up looking good here
>>4161344Unlike their parasitic cousins the Reflective Glob managed to increase the amount of light it got by having it's shell become reflective
>>4165037uhhh. you posted this twice
>>4165041I deleted the first one due to the messed up description
>>4161067>>4163356(cancerous intermingling)the tumorous mass reaches up for the sky growing above its puny brethren like non have before, blocking the light they would dare to take that is rightfully its, they should cower in its shadow and wither as its tendrils spreads sapping the vitality of all around. its girth swelling ready to spew forth its kin upon the land when the time comes if they do not burst out on there own in there fruitfulness (it grows taller then all the other plants this way it does not have to compete for light and space the same way as most species would, its continued growth creates more surface area making it slightly more efficient but hitting kind of a slight cap and instead of exploding it has a internal weakness or opening that will let out the internal copies when they build up enough pressure if it does not rupture some other part of itself first possibly dying or just continuing to grow to repeat the cycle)
>>4165041I'm only seeing it once.>>4165007The newly-evolved defence proves an effective offence as well. Subsequently, some needle centipede lurs develop increasingly elaborate stingers, which they sue to become effective hunters of other lurs. They can stab prey even under the ground, with their long stingers, and the sensitive hairs which grow on their expanding defensive plates allow them to seek them out by their movements. Their legs grow stronger and longer to give them better mobility and leverage, and their mouths--no longer their primary weapon--lose size and strength.This is the lance lur!
>>4160109Some of the basal flaps who survived the extinction event have taken on a series of adaptations to a new lifestyle: nesting and sheltering in the ever-taller cancerous intermingling globs. Their fins have shortened to allow them to squeeze into smaller spaces, though this has limited their ability to swim very far, and their dentition has changed to afford them the ability to not just chew up globs but to burrow inside them, to climb them, and to anchor in place as needed with hooked 'fangs'.These are nesting flaps.
>>4161099A few Parasitic Microlurs have been born with a second head, turning into the Symbiotic Microlur: now providing defense with it's snapping beak in exchange for nutrients.Occasionally the Microlur's second head will embed itself in a passing-by creature, causing it to be stuck to it's original host. The surrounding Microlurs tend to also hook into the unlucky bystander, and thus once attached the two hosts are unlikely to separate.
>>4165127 I quote from me in the discord WHAT ARE YALL GONNA DO WITH THESE THINGS XDI'm actually really excited to see what comes out of this
>>4165165Yeah there have been some good ideas
>>4164910this species was stolen by chaos space marines for jump packs.
>>4164392The Seeing Lur's eyes become concave, making them better at determining what direction light comes from.
>>4163172The breathing difficulties of the Lur adapted by other generations are circumvented as a branch of Wide-Mouth Lurs come to fruition, capturing large pockets of water and prey by spreading their mouth wide and drawing in whatever's in front of it. This increases the surface area along the inside of the Lur, providing better osmosis absorption of air.
>>4161101The "other lurr" has persisted mostly unchanged across generations, but the advent of symbiotic microlurs leads to the advent of sedentary lurrs less dependent on filter-feeding; instead, their symbiotes' grappled adversaries provide them a decaying carcass to gradually digest with anus-produced enzymes and to suck bit by bit into their ballooning food-sacks.These are carrion lurrs, and their floating larvae settle and row in great numbers where large animals die.
>>4165249Is the carrion lurr the parasites or the sedentary?
>>4165255The sedentary, aided by colonies of >>4165127 which thrive best when their host is helping them digest the animals they accidentally hook onto.
or maybe not idk. they will be on the tree of the sedentary lure though
>>4165076The nesting flaps have grown longer, two-pronged back fins that allow for advanced manuverabilty and a slight speed boost.
>>4165201Seeing Lurs are increasingly dangerous prey for many predator lurs, but with the sea floor comes the danger of attack from below by sabertoothed spike lurs, and they are still no match in a fight for the larger lance lurs or wide-mouth lur, and their inchworming is not nearly fast enough to get a way from omnivorous flaps which see them as extra protein in their salad. Over generations, their muscular ribbed section comes to support increasingly-wide membranes on either side, which allow them to worm their way up into the waters above to escape from these beings which harass them. For the first time, a lur joins the flaps and the floating gobs in the higher realms of the ocean waters!This is the navigating lur.
>>4165249Carrion lurrs have gained stretchier skin in order to store even more food in their food-sacks.
>>4164519Responding to increased competition for food and risk of predation when they come to feed, some descendants of club tailed flaps become more heavily-armored across their bodies. To support this increased weight, their wings also grow longer and wider.These are the armoured flaps, and they will bash your teeth (or spikes) off, and reduce a grabby carrion lurr and its hangers-on to a fine paste before they can digest it.
>>4165037Reflective globs managed to *somewhat* blend as rocks in as their vines darken to stonier colors and their shells become smoother and slighty refractive.They are now known as Pearl Globs.
>>4165303After killing their prey, carrion lurrs pulled the bodies into their strechier food-sacks where they could be safe from other hungry carnivores.
>>4165127To stop new creatures getting stuck to their hosts some Symbiotic Microlurs lose the barbs on their "defending" head, with the downside of them dealing less damage
evolution is exploding out here
>>4165190>Your name: John Flapman, Space Marine>Your mission: Eat, Mate, and Repeat
>>4165201Some seeing lurs develop increasingly muscular, stretchy bodies with armoured, streamlined skulls. This body plan is especially great for climbing up and around globs, be they cancerous and tree-like or craggy and armoured, and for ignoring any bites by startled parasitic microlurs or nesting flaps inside them as they stretch their necks and wriggle their head around inside them to dislodge tasty morsels. The downside is that such a skull and lifestyle makes front-facing eyes a liability, so they only retain the back ones, for keeping an eye out for predators when their face is buried inside their meal.This is the pickaxe lur.
>>4164000In order to float ever closer to the surface the Floater Globs have developed a wider flatter base becoming Surface Globs
>>4165232With their improved breathing abilities, the Wide-Mouth Lur became able to suck in large pockets of water and then quickly expel it through their anal cavity.This branch is known as Accordion Lurs.
>>4160950In the biological armsrace for survival, spike lurs with an additional set of scrunchy ribs are emerging, able to inchworm faster than their single-set cousins
>>4160109Those basic little flaps who have not evolved nesting habits to hide away must find other ways to survive in a sea home to so many predatory lurs and flaps. Countercolour Flaps like one one pictured become darker on top and lighter on bottom, to better blend in with light patterns and to hide from predators. They learn to avoid the very bottom of the seafloor and the shallows, returning to their ancient homelands only to lay eggs; the rest of their time is spend chasing floater globs and surface globs out in the open ocean, and dodging predators.
>>4165399To reduce the chance of predators eating the whole plant, the Surface Glob began to frequently grow incredibly delicious fruit called "cornberries", which have a nutritious outer skin with a tough, unchewable pit. As the fruit travels through the digestive system, the pit dissolves just enough so that the pollen inside releases just as the pit is ejected from the body.This branch is called the Cornberry Glob.
>>4164000No longer content to float slowly and only with the current some Floater globs develop easily detachable tendrils to entrap swimming creatures and hitch a ride with them
>>4165436*Retcon: the pit actually falls to the ocean floor where the feces it came in is used as a fertilizer. The pit grows into full glob and floats to the ocean surface.
Alright its official next event is tomorrow so just keep on evolving till then ill make a new set of tree's tomorrow as well
>>4165352To defend itself from predators, the Carrion Lurr developed a hard outer epidermis, while still retaining it's general stretchiness.
>>4165201Having become aware that most of it's prey lives above it the Seeing Lur's posture changed to easier attack upwards
>>4165346the pearl globs develops whitish leafs in the tip of its tentacles and around the base of its shell.
>>4165462So is this evolution of the seeing lur a carnivore, omivore, or just specialized in stabbing at floating and tall globs? The previous evolutions derived from the herbivorous spike lur ( >>4160950 )
>>4164994The Prehensile Tail Flap has gained basic eyes on both the top and bottom of it's head to identify food.
>>4165471I admit I forgot about the herbivorous part, so lets say it's an omnivore. Second time I do something like, first was when I picked the wrong Flap evolution for >>4163267. Here is hoping there isn't a third time
>>4163294The backwards flaps, first of the streamlined swimmers in Xeolea's seas but still a herbivore like its flappy predecessors, suddenly finds itself surrounded by other animals. While many backwards flaps just continue to exploit the ever-wider assortment of floating globs and their fruiting bodies, no niche ever goes unexploited in an ecosystem for long, and there are not yet any swift-moving carnivores in the upper ocean aside from the occasional accordian lur.Such is the genesis of the seeker flap, seen to the left, whose symbiotic globs erect sensory structures on its wing-tips to aid in trajectory adjustments. Its fins grow stronger, supported by a muscular hump resembling a second tail, and its digestive system adapts to flesh.If you're a fellow flap or navigating lur out and about, the seeker flap is death incarnate.
>>4165464The pearl globs grow thorny vines which allow them to latch onto any newly rising surface Globs ( >>4164000 >>4165436 ) in order to whisk it away from seafloor dwelling lur and give it greater sunlight.
can i just say tommorow is gonna be hell on me updating the trees XD theres over 30 new species since i last updated it
>>4165452Don't be afraid to have creatures go extinct simply because they can't keep with predators/prey or something else fills their ecological niche better. It keeps the extinction events something big and stops from being overused.
How many of these guys rest or sleep. Thinking of doing nocturnal shit.
>>4165508its not an extinction event actually though i may take that suggestion for the future>>4165510the flaps and the lurs (except the carrion lur since they seem to be more passive may be wrong on that) probbably need some sort of rest.
>>4165506Allow me to help a brother out.
>>4165503The this flapper further develops its fins to create a tissue where the globs can collect more light and also give maneuverability to the creature.
>>4165529oh my gosh thank you so much friend ^_^ one down 2 more to go. ill just. update my tree on my computer to this
>>4165454>>4165454In an increasingly hostile environment, the sedentary Carrion Lurr is quite literally a sitting duck. With no other option in sight, the Carrion Lurr must make do with it's situation.The Carrion Lurr has abandoned it's stretchiness in favor of sheer toughness and size. It has also gained bright, vibrant colors to falsely draw attention to itself as a prey. However, it's stout and sturdy build makes it tough for even a clubbed flap to beat. Even then, it won't go down without a fight. It's larger size allows the it to support even more microlur, making any predator regret picking a fight with it.This branch is known as the Barnaclurr.
>>4165545>>4165529One more to go.
>>4165556shit forgot image
also second note for yall. im likely going to close off the starter species to any more evolutions as of the event I'm working on tomorrow so i guess get out any last base evolutions you have if you have any
>>4165404Accordion Lurs have become nocturnal, giving them a hunting edge. Accordingly, they have also become darker in color.
>>4165484This species has gained an suckers on it's tail for improved grabbing. It's eyes are also better developed and are able to more properly make out shapes and colors.
>>4165279Nesting flapper develop bony protusions to latch better to mounds and facilitate the burrowing. Also good to scratch predators.
>>4165599 Forgot the image
>>4165559Up-to-date lurs! All these trees should be complete apart from >>4165590 and subsequent posts.
>>4165603thank you soo much friend this was helpfull
>>4165607No prob!>>4165601>>4165599Bony nesting flaps give rise to Greater Bony Flaps, such as pic related. Their abdomens are covered in claw-like protrusions to help anchor them and allow them to quickly scale the tallest cancerous intermingling globs, inside or out. Their wings have shifted form slightly to facilitate this, but it means their ability to swim is more limited than any of their cousins. They rarely leave the safety of the globs, living on a diet of fruiting bodies, fresh sprouts, and plant-dwelling microlurs.
>>4165577The hair along the outside of the nocturnal Lur bind into hardened spikes as the puffing nature of The Lur causes them to puff instinctively when they collide with an opposing force. Those that develop poking fur ward off competition more often.
>>4165695The spiky lurs develop some unhardened hairs on the front, to use as brightly colored distractions and rudimentary tactile sensors (since the hardening of their hair they lost much of the sensitivity of their ancestors)
>>4165440The most successful hitchhiker globs which do not explode into spores or constantly send off plumes of them, but which produce more attractive fruiting bodies and allow them to break away. These fruits are bright, attention-grabbing targets for more organisms the spores can hitchhike on; failing that, they do still eventually burst and disperse.Prolific Hitchhiker Globs have arisen, and their fruit makes the upper areas of the ocean all the more appealing!
>>4165722reminder to please not do same creature another evo imidiatlly after not removing this from tree but please don't do this
>>4165045The Truly Towering Tumor Tree is perhaps the pinnacle of current cancer-globs: a tree-like mound of conjoined globs which can reach from the very seabed to the air above the ocean. It was facilitated by the development of more and more openings to eject new growths at the base, making it less likely to burst or topple as it grew. This was necessitated by all the surface-level and upper ocean globs, which had begun to crowd the sunlight from these greedy, nutrient-hungry behemoths.
>>4165753can we just shorten that to tumor tree XD
>>4165759Hell no. Triple T Tree is kickass.
>>4163600With everything they could ever need in the gargantuan cancer trees, these microlurs had survival handed to them on a silver platter. Eventually, they adapted to do the two things they were made to do even better: eat and mate. Their bodies grew larger to store even more eggs and nutrients. The ones that stuck on the outside of the trees almost resemble fruit, in a way; round, plump, almost begging for you to eat them. It would only fair as to balance out how quickly they reproduce.These fat fucks shall now be called the Pimplurs, and they shall go forth and multiply.
>>4161101The Lurr Sacks developing on the stem of the Lurr organism start to distend as they grow full, and when given enough weight will break away from the main body of the creature and settle in the dirt as a still living clone of the parent Lurr. This form of Budding Lurr, while still able to reproduce through exchange of DNA with other members of the species, tends to form thick carpets of very genetically homogeneous Lurr.This is called The Budlur
>>4165577This strand of Accordion Lurs has become bigger and longer, allowing it to swallow more prey.
>>4165279My friend is banned but wanted to contribute.This species of Flapper has developed a set of bulb grappling pincers that can latch onto the surface of blobs and let them suck the juices from inside the host like a bat on a squeezy tube.
>>4165505The thorns of these pearl globs have developed a poison deadly to most animals. They can be recognized by their signature black shells, which are extremely refractive and immensely beautiful.This strand is known as Kraken-Eye Pearl Globs.
>>4165590Already sporting relatively tough scales, this flap has grown larger in size and tougher in skin in order to protect itself from the infamous Seeker Flaps. Despite their herbivorous nature, they will bite ferociously if messed with.This strand is known as the Elephant Flaps.
>>4161344An offshoot of the craggy glob has slowly been emerging. The Reef Glob survived the extinction event by growing larger roots to better extract the decomposing refuse of other creatures from the sediment of the seabed. Using the leftovers that it cant use for growth it makes a chemical reaction to heat itself, making it an attractive shelter or nesting grounds for other creatures. More creatures gather near them resulting in more food for the Reef Glob.
Excited to see the event! Holding off on more designs until then tos ee what dies off or how the environment changes.
>>4166194i already said nothings dying off this time
With the worlds oceans surface and sea floors now getting covered in glob blankets tumor globs and surface globs. It is not too uncommon to see some of the surface dwelling types of globs to end up drifting into the tidepools of the land. as well as their offspring which often drifts. Sometimes some of the globs who do make it survive. What will come of this new development? who knows but the colonization of the land has begun because of these first stranded plantshey guys . so note here. you guys can do what ya want. just its fun lore wise to have some of the surface globs arrive on the land first. you can now evolve plants and eventually the animals who follow them onto the land (use the current map for specific lands for them if you'd like if you want them to be in a specific area.I'm working on a new map right now with update locations of the continents as well as probbably the geography of the world. Good luck Happy evolving.. This has been amazing so far and hope yall keep making this amazing. old map can be found here.>>4161509 but note one of the biggest changes from this is that the ice caps have exceeded revealing the continents trapped beneath these are still within the colder regions of the world though but are slowly migrating towards the middle area
anyway couldnt sleep so here yall go night now or i might stick around
>>4160950Having grown suction cups the Cup Lur spends climbing and eating Truly Towering Tumor Tree. Unfortunately it lacks any defenses against the Pimplurs and Microlurs
>>4165505While many surface and upper-ocean globs wash ashore and survive for brief periods in tidepools, perhaps the first to truly adapt to land life is the thorny pearl glob. With its protective casing helping it to retain moisture, some of its young specimens are able to survive and even reproduce in those tidepools, waiting to be swept out to sea. In time, some even begin to adapt to shore life so thoroughly that they take to anchoring themselves in place with their thorny roots, avoiding being swept out at all.These are the chibi pearl globs, and while they cannot reach the sheer size of their oceanic ancestors, they live in a world with far less competition for resources. The beaches of some rocky areas become studded with these beautiful, shining pearls, surrounded by interlaced carpets of thorny tentacles/roots, and wide white leaves.
>>4165127Some symbiotic microlurs over the eons, pulled away from their sedentary lurr hosts, had the genes necessary to survive for some time on their own, digesting bits of floating detritus on their own. These translucent "planktolurs" still have one set of jaws suitable for capturing floating motes, but the other set has reduced even further and become something between a hook and paddle, usable to hitch short rides on larger organisms or to propel themselves weakly for short distances.It's still not enough to prevent them being swept into tidepools, but they are resilient enough and reproduce fast enough to survive in these environments until the tide comes back in. Maybe, someday, they might even thrive there...
>>4166264Two subspecies of the Chibi Glob emerge: the Blackleaf Whitehead Chibis and the Whiteleaf Blackhead Chibis. The whiteheads reflect light with their head and consume it with their leaves, while the blackheads do the opposite.Also, due to a lack of predation, both species lost their thorns.
>>4161344Some Craggy Glob lost the top of of their shell giving them a natural reservoir to collect water and better handle life on the much dryer shores
>>4165436The new striped-berry glob is like its predecessor but its roots are multiple trying to get its delicious fruits away from its main body to avoid being swallowed. Also his fruits have now blue stripes to get the attention of the fauna.These ones prefer specially shallow waters
>>4166351>>4165353A type of Symbiotic Microlur has begun to live on Stripeberry Globs, their constant undulations shaking their host so much that it's fruits pop off.
>>4165722The heavily armored Pufflur now keeps it's young safe in a brood pouch until they're old enough to grow their own spikes.
>>4165976Rather than land next to their parents some Lur Sacks have been washed ashore where the difficulty in acquiring food have resulted in a much smaller adult form
note forgot to mention but did mention this yesterday your unable to evolve the original species as of the event also good morning
>>4166301The Whitehead Chibi Glob has rooted itself into cracks in the stone to keep it from being swept away into the ocean. Additonally, they have taken on the more jagged appearance of their ancestors while still maintaining their shiny nature.This species is known as Crystal Globs.
>>4166095These elephant flaps have developed bigger heads with joints on the ends, allowing them to propel themselves thru the water. They now also like to feed on cancer globs.
>>4166484But how does it photosynthesize?
>>4166351Some of these berries have sprouted leaves containing small pockets of air, allowing the berries to always be found on the surface of the water.This species is called Bubbleberry Globs.
>>4166484>>4166495would also like to know
>>4165536Having grown a much wider body the Wide Flap floats partially above the surface of the water to give it's Glob part maximum sunlight while the Flap's head remains submerged to both help it breath and catch any food. The wider body body does come with a loss of speed and maneuverability though.
>>4166500But you removed it's leaves, and it was using those for photosynthesis
>>4166504Only the blackheads use their leaves to photosynthesize. Crystal globs absorb light thru their naturally shiny head.
>>4165980This species of accordion lur dwell in warmer shallow waters, and have shorter fur. These are called Sandy Accordion Lur.
>>4165639The bony protrusions have developed joints, allowing to climb even faster.These are called scuttle flaps.
>>4166506>>4166504perhaps I can be of help, anonsyou see, photosynthesis doesn't require chloroplast - aka the stuff that makes plants greenevolutionarily speaking, it is entirely coincidental that our plants are greenthe reason they actually are green, is because chloroplast can't process green light, so it reflects it, which makes the plants greenIn fall, when chloroplast breaks down and leaves die, you find that leaves become red and yellow instead, because now that the chloroplast is gone, they can photosynthesize green light, but not red and yellowIt's entire plausible for a plant to require so little nutrition as to reflect all wavelengths and just be whiteor alternatively, as some plants do in real lifethey simply don't photosynthesize and get their nutrients somewhere else
>>4166484The glob's head has grown larger and has become black in color to maximize the amount of light absorbed. As a side effect, the head tends to get very warm.These are known as Obsidian Globs.
>>4166502The Submarine flap has has grown glob on it's head specifically adapted for sensing above water.
>>4166321These Colander Globs have developed a thin epidermis with microscopic pores over their "bowl" which helps them to filter the water that comes through.
>>4166527The roots of this glob have become deeper and stronger, allowing it to grow on beaches and become even taller.They are now known as Globelisks.
>>4166493The elephant flaps have now become omnivorous. However, the much prefer the plentiful pimplur that riside on the cancer globs rather than challenging prey like seekers. The protein intake also makes them slightly stronger.
>>4166506The blackheads photosynthesized through the head and reflected light with leaves, the whiteheads photosynthesized with the leaves and reflected light with their headsTrust me that's how it works, I was the one who made them
>>4166579My mistake, I misread your post. We can change it so that the Globelisks evolved from blackheads instead.
so>>4166301>>4166527>>4166559?>>4166581ill accept this if this is how we are going and disreguard the other stage
>>4166588Yes, thank you. Sorry for the trouble.
>>4166301The Whitehead Glob grew long, thick branches which allowed more photosynthesizing leaves. These branches concealed the reflective head almost entirely, which is why it is lovingly given the name "The Oyster Shrub".
>>4166519The scuttle flaps have developed jointed "fingers" on the tips of their wings allowed for more dexterity then ever.
please use mspaint atleast
>>4166609After one strand of this plant became lighter and lost it's reflective head, it would sometimes be swept away by winds if it was not deep enough in the tidepool. To over come this, the branches produced many small seeds, scattering them across the land as the dead bush tumbled across the land, going wherever the wind took it. As a result, newly sprouted seeds relied mostly on rainwater for survival.This species is known as Tumbleglobs.
>>4166519The scuttle flaps develop more bony protusions with joints, this time in their fins, allowing them a kind of primitive arms.
>>4166389These Stripeberry Microlurs eventually begin to spread to other berry plants, and to adapt to this new lifestyle. These are the Berrypicker Microlurs, and they have mouths and throats adapted to seizing whole berries the size of their head and swallowing them, and butt-mouths adapted to taking firm hold of a moving platform even in rough storms.
>>4166646Some tumbleglobs evolved to take advantage of areas of especially-consistent rainwater and rich soil; when they roll there, they unfurl their outer casing to anchor themselves, and then put down roots. These are Inland Settler Tumbleglobs, first colonists of the interior of the continents in many areas!
>>4166498As the air-sacks became larger and the fruit itself became lighter, the wind would whisk some of these fruit to the land. Subsequently, the plant had adapted so that the seeds that landed there would grow fruits on their tops and root themselves into the ground.This species is called Whiskberry Globs.
>>4165279Some nesting flaps take to living in reef globs. These Reef-Nesting Flaps are smaller, more drably-coloured, and more comfortable living gregariously and in close quarters than many other flaps. They scavenge plant and animal material alike, and their inefficient and unspecialized digestive system means their droppings are excellent fertilizer for their home.
>>4166658The protovertebrate flaps hardly swim at all more, in some lineages. Instead, their tail-fins develop along the same lines as their "arms", becoming primitive legs, and they develop a ridge of jointed spines along their tail to help use it to propel them up and down the truly towering tumor trees more easily. Their default method of defence is to quickly scuttle up and around the tree, and then to dive into the first growth-expulsion port (or hole dug by another animal) that they can find.
>>4165976More Microlurs begin to live on the Budlur's ass-proboscis, aiding it both in gathering minute food particles from the surrounding waters and in defending from predators.
Gonna pull a NG and give you all a bonus event, to spice up your evolving.Pick a creature and roll a 1d6, this is what your dude gets:1 - symbiosis - you don't get a new bodypart, but at least you've gained a friend! Choose another creature and evolve it to aid you somehow.2 - upgraded senses - your sensory organs have become greatly enhanced. If you don't have senses, rolls over to 3.3 - new senses - develop an extra way to perceive the world, be it a set of feelers, electroreception, echolocation or whatever you come up with.4 - skeleton - grow a spine, you pansy! Whether it is an impenetrable shell, a set of flexible tubes inside you, or a segmented carapace, you now have a solid supporting frame.5 - new appendage - gain one or two new limbs.6 - air breathing - you've elevated beyond your peers and developed a way to survive the harsh waterlessness of land. Gain a lung, a set of spiracles, or whatever air-breathing organ you want.
>>4166740Can you not. or atleast tell me i know your probably the person who posted it on thee discord but ask beforehand maybe?
sorry i dont wanna come across as rude but. if you just asked if you could do this instead of showing and then posting it in thread. i may have just said yes .-. but ya sort of presented it as an idea
>>4166559Globelisks reproduce by growing underground fruit that are coconut-like in function. These fruit are a shiny yellow, which is why they are called "treasure fruit".
>>4166212Holy shit, what freak of nature is this??Extra "skulls" begin growing across the backs of some cup lurs due to a freakish viral-genetic interaction, but damned if this carapace of false faces doesn't prove an extremely effective adaptation of the otherwise-defenceless browsers. Better yet, all these skulls provide muscle anchoring points, so it may climb with more speed and flex its stabby little shell in dangerous thrusts at things that still try to get at its underbelly.The Multineedle Lur continues to browse in peace, no longer as bothered by predation as its ancestors were.
>>4166740It's a neat idea, but I don't really need a prompt myself. It's easier and more intuitive for me to look at the organisms and environment around a creature and extrapolate out from that. Not a bad optional thing for those struggling to come up with an idea, though!Btw, see attached update. Spreading unchallenged across the land has been a boon to gob diversity!
>>4166802please remove the white crystal on the oblisk line goes off of the black pearl one
it was decided that we were changing it to that instead. also thanks for the update again though
>>4166806According to >>4166484, it derived from a "Whitehead Chibi Glob [which] rooted itself into cracks in the stone to keep it from being swept away into the ocean"...However, I did totally forget the Kraken-Eye Pearl Globs, so reposting anyway!
>>4166815Yes, but do to a misinterpretation we decided to retcon it so that the Crystal Glob never existed and Obsidian Globs instead evolved from blackheaded Globs.
>>4166815You also forgot the Tumor Trees.
>>4166825>>4166822Well, fair enough. Here's globby!
>>4166853And here, hopefully complete, is the much wider but flatter (less abstracted, I guess? More basal?) phylogenetic tree of known lurs and lurrs.
>>4166860Thanks!>>4166858Lastly, the flaps! They're frankly our least-diversified group, most sticking fairly close to their ancestral body plan and a few specialized niches (apex sea predators, glob-inhabiting browsers, open-sea foragers, and huge powerful omnivores).
i really want to see the fused flaps develop more honestly
>>4165425some double-ribbed lurs started nesting around the towering tumor trees, where they face harsh competition with the already settled fauna. Those that fared the best, are the Slinky Lurs, featuring only a single set of squish ribs again, but one larger and more powerful than it's predecessors, further increasing it's speed.
>>4161252Unable to compete with their more-transformed fused cousins or the various non-fused flap varieties as they once did, some of the ancestral fused flaps develop an intriguing strategy: they now produce both reproducing and non-reproducing offspring! The former eventually grow to fuse with one another or other passing fused flap juveniles, while the latter hover about their parent in great numbers, helping to fend off predators and collecting food. Great flocks of these Flocking Flaps begin to drive off their relatives to access the choicest of floating globs and berries.
>>4165425>>4166766Other double-ribbed lurs have settled around the Globelisks where they eat the fruits growing underground. To do this, many specimen have their spikes fuse with their skulls, to create a single large mouth with which to dig for and slurp up the juices of the fruit.
>>4166947Our first actual specialized land animal! Unexpected route.
>>4165987From the friend in the shadow realm.The Shoveltail Flap. Facing intense pressure within its niche from different subspecies of blob-inhabiting Flaps, the shoveltail has taken a radically different approach. Increasing the amount of teeth it has, the shoveltail has turned into a protective ambush predator that digs its body into large Blob structures in order to protect itself from larger predators. Becoming an Omnivore after generations of selection favoring an expanded diet, the Shoveltail Flap predates upon other species of Flap by launching itself from its blobby home with its powerful tail and segmented arms, it attaching to its prey and rapidly sucking out its insides by instituting a sucking death roll spin.
>>4165429Some counter-color Flaps have developed shovel-like front-teeth to better scoop up floating globs
>>4166951I was under the impression that globelisks are sea-adjacent and not actually properly inland
>>4166964A, fair enough. Still, a subterranean shore animal! Not unlike the first fish crawling onto land and beginning to develop amphibiousness!
>>4165722Shellurs develop as the constant competition between the inflating Lur species causes many deaths among their own kind, leaving those with denser layers of hair to thrive. This results in the formation of a segmented shell of hair keratin that causes The Lur species to get knocked around as they collide with others of their species, rather than getting impaled.
>>4166944When two females compete for a male mate, sometimes they will simply both mate with the male. What results the horrible BASTARD FLAP, with a six-lipped mouth full of teeth and twice as many offspring. These are bigger, faster, and hungrier than the standard fused flap.
>>4166999>trips>dubs>demon spawnchecks out
>>4165987While shoveltail flaps specialize in preying on their cousins, still other descendants of the glob-sucking flap take to specializing in eating the tough-armoured lurs. lurrs, and pearl globs of the aquatic forests. Orange-blue Flaps (so-called because they now use their fin/wing membranes to signal mates) have extra grasping teeth and, behind those, a strong muscular ring supporting rounded crushing teeth. They can thus seize and hold prey, or rip roots and tentacles away from their resting place, and crush armoured heads, backs, or globs into a nice crunchy meal.
>>4165045Bulb mats hollow bodies are filled with water, they spreading out as far and flat as possible for the most efficient surface to mass ratio, they are ready to spread there roots if they get ripped off to start new colonies growing bulbs from its sides.
>>4165953With increased competition for their natural habitat, the pimplur are forced to eat their way deep into the center of the Great Cancer Trees, where very few prey would be able to reach them.This species is called Dimplur.
>>4166020The poisonous vines of the Kraken-Eye Pearl Globs have grown longer and higher-up to ward off orange-blue flaps.
>>4166947Root-eating double-ribbed lurs' squishy bodies are vulnerable to abrasion as they tunnel further inland in search of glob roots, but not so (or at least not as much) for the earthlur. This creature's ribbed sections are plated in interlocking rings of muscle and cartilage, allowing it to punch through tougher and drier soils, and to protect its organs from desiccation and abrasion.
>>4164432To hunt >>4166947, the Burrowing Lurs needed to stay in their tunnels long enough to find them, which was hard to do when you needed water to breathe. So they grew a sort of sack on their back, capable of storing oxygenated water for a few minutes while they hunt.
>>4166731What about the crab legs on it's belly?
>>4167103Though fast enough to escape their predators, the very tunnels they dig spells the end of many a double-ribbed lur, running straight into them due to lack of maneuverability.Though they're still vulnerable to predation, the triple-ribbed lur is flexible enough to evade the Burrowing lur in a tense cat-and-mouse game
>>4167122forgot to add >>4166947since that is obviously what it's descending from
>>4167049Gradually the female Dimplur (bottom) become larger and fatter, producing even more offspring. Meanwhile, the male Dimplur (top) become wider and tougher to defend the females and their eggs from predators. The males are not very threatening on their own, due to their relatively small size, which is why they attack a single target all together.
>>4167103>>4167122With much longer, articulated jaws, the Burrowing Lur has a much higher chance of catching it's wigglier prey.As it begins to spend less and less time in flooded tunnels and more and more time in dry ones, it's skin begins to become rougher and less permeable.
>>4166960>>4167020some shovel-toothed counter Flaps discovered bulb mats as their new primary food source. To plow through this mass of plants, they developed little razor edges at the end of their shovel-teeth.
>>4167122>>4167158Predation has seen the rise of two new successful mutations in the multi-ribbed lur family.One is the quadruple-ribbed lur. While at it's core it's no different from it's cousins, it's flexibility has become it's strongest point, enabling it to even circle around itself for easier escapes.
>>4167122>>4167158The other is the double-spiked triple-rib lurhaving a "skull" on it's tail as well, it is able to fight the Burrowing lur in any direction
>>4166392Some of the brooding armoured pufflurs take to traveling with subadults and juveniles from their broods for a time, working together to combat and round up flocking flaps, or to battle larger flaps like the greater omnivores or bastards.These are the pack pufflurs.
>>4166766With so many creatures now tunneling in and around their root systems, consuming their fruits before they can ripen and give rise to new reproductive structures, selective pressures begin to favour those globelisks which invest less energy in their famous tall, shelled structures and more in the production and rapid maturation of the treasure fruit underneath. Their root networks spread wider, producing more fruits and bringing them to adulthood faster than the ribbed lurs can devour them.These are the lesser globelisks, and despite their name, in many places they begin to outnumber their towering ancestral stock, which find themselves toppling as the soil and root networks beneath them are torn apart. They become fertilzier in many cases, for their so-called lessers.
>>4166731Squirrel flaps have developed gills similar to those of a crab, meaning that it breath air for long periods of time as long it keeps it's gills wet. The squirrel flap uses it's new breathing abilities to settle on the air-exposed portions of the great cancer trees, where it is unchallenged by other prey.
>>4166766To combat the ever growing taste for their fruit, some globelisks made their fruit much less appetizing. These fruits have grown browner in color, and have an even thicker outer coating. But above all, their taste and smell has become extremely bitter, warding of any hungry herbivores. These fruits are known as bronzefruit.
>>4166707Solar Panel Whiskberries grow from globs which are ringed with leaves/petals derived from their seeds' sails. These whiskberries are increasingly ill-adapted to a long-term life at sea, but their adhesive-producing roots allow them to anchor themselves even onto the exterior of a pearl glob or globelisk, let alone any patch of unclaimed land, and the fan of their leaves shifts and turns with the sun to keep them well-fed by photosynthesis no matter where they find themselves living.
>>4166513The Gulplur has developed a long, narrow beak. It is very sturdy and extends surprisingly wide, and the Gulplur uses it to skewer it's prey while it's sleeping and then swallow it whole.
>>4167429These globs developed even bigger leaves, which stored water instead the berries's signature air. These leaves also became varying in color, increasing the types of light the plant absorbed.This species is known as the Peacock Glob, and it's fruit are Peacock Eyes.
>>4166153Following thousands of years of simply sitting in sedentary positions at the bottom of the ocean, the Craggy Glob has changed into the much larger Belcher Blob. The Belcher Blob is much heavier than its previous iteration, leading to a reduction in size of the roots due to the mere weight of the massive top structure keeping it grounded well enough. Periodically the Belcher Blob will vomit out a black mix of fecal matter, ash, sand, and other inedible bits that it can't bother to digest in its filter feeding lifestyle
i have map now.
>>4166513An offshoot of the Sandy Accordion Lur has evolved, with its chitinous material growing overreactive and covering much of its body. What fur it has left sticks out from between its plates in sharp bristles, the newly dubbed Sandtiger Lur now ossilates like a caterpillar to get around on the sea floor, it even capable of crawling back into the ocean when it occasionally gets washed up on the shore of its beachy shallow home. This armor helps to protect the Lur from predation, as well as also allowing for a greater amount of mobility due to its newfound elevation.
also NG helped
>>4167387Flying squirrel flaps have developed wider fins, which now function as primitive wings that let them glide down from the top of the great cancer trees safely to the ocean. They also have developed two eyes on the front of their head.
>>4167521The Sandtiger Lur has developed a stronger, toothier beak that can ground most unarmored (and some armored) lur and lurr into a fine paste.
>>4167513Some of these Belchers also puked out a strong hallucigen, warding off the few left who would be willing to eat it. They became known as Devil Bongs.
>>4166978As mobility is lowered by the shelled segments of The Shellurs, thick hair strands stretch down between the shell and the skin and usher the creature forward as its swaying motions cause them to reach ahead and brush against the sand of the ocean's floor, propelling it forward.
>>4167582Can these things still propel themselves with water propulsion, too?
>>4167598Yeah but given the shells it's like a thing they do really quick but it can't be a sustained method of transportation.
>>4165127In the time spent since our last run in with the Symbiotic Microlur, much has happened. Each side of the Lur has become a functioning head in its own right, with a simple clump of neurons being housed within each head. In order to help them better coordinate with one another and prevent infighting the newly dubbed "Hydra Lur" has evolved simple light detection organs on its face(s) as well. Growing a previously small tumorous lump into a tail, the Hydra lur now swims around its larger hosts and picks small parasitic creatures from its host in return for protection and occasional feeding via sucking of blood.
Toxic bloom extinction event Throughout the worlds oceans there have been increased growth of some of the single celled plant life. which have leached a lot of the dissolved oxygen and nutrients in the water influencing and killing off large numbers of the complex ocean creaturesSo everyone can roll up to 7 1d10's for any species of their choice. any species that is not rolled for will be guaranteed a extinction (Minus any land creatures)Some creatures will have a better chance of surviving then others . which i will determine for myselfif you wish to roll just link the species in your post with the rolls along with the number to each creature.Multiple rolls can be done for the same creature if you want to try to save one over another.Sidenote i have reasons for increasing the number of rolls. So good luck Evolving is put on pause until the event is over...(so... Whos ready for some death? not everyone can survive this event so good luck chose wisely who your rolls are for

As the seas clear. One thing is abundantly obvious. The disapearence of one of the long time standing and key species of the ocean biomes. Choked out by the sudden competition the blanket globs have suddenly disappeared. Leaving the sea floors littered with the many toxic plants that remain. the many sea animals to retreat to the tall tumor trees that stretch up to the ocean surface. hoping to find safety in its tumorus growths(note to self 6 rolls is just fine or do we need more rolls i have no fucking clue. YALL KILLED OFF THE MAIN SOURCE OF FOOD ON THE OCEAN HOW well plant wise. or maybe its the secondary main source of food. but yeah so um the blanket globs are dead and everything else is either poisonous or hallucinogenic . or just is going to latch on to you. Except for hitch hiker globs and tumor trees but the tumor trees . well . they are now basically where all the herbivores are so the carnivores probbably flock there HAVE FUN >>4166570 elephant flaps>>4167171 shovel toothed counter flaps>>4167185 double spike triple rib lur>>4167532 Flying squirrel flaps>>4167548 sandtiger lur>>4166999 bastard flap>>4166389 Stripeberry globs + symbiotic microlur>>4165353 non barbed symbiotic microlur>>4167216 brooding armoured pufflurs>>4167180 Quadruple ribbed lur>>4165536 flapper green (as dubbed by its file>>4165753 tumor trees>>4165726 Prolific hitch hiker globs>>4165326 armoured flaps>>4164392 spotted lur>>4167574 devil bong>>4166570 omnivorous elephant flap>>4166775 Multineedle lur>>4166282 Planktolurs>>4166944 Flocking flap>>4167017 Orange blue flaps>>4167158 Burrowing lur>>4166734 Budlurs>>4167075 Kraken eye pearl globs>>4167622 hydra lur>>4167521 sandy accordion lur>>4167662 shovel tail luralso just to have a cohesive list of everything that is a live. here are land creatures>>4167509>>4167429>>4167416>>4167375>>4167091>>4166766>>4166707>>4166706>>4166646>>4166609>>4166559>>4166551>>4166527>>4166420>>4166321>>4166301>>4166264Happy evolving
after counting off i think i going to keep to 7 or 6note though this was a low risk extinction for the most part. as that's what got rolled. and there was a high amount of luck so a lot of your key species are still hanging in there
>>4168520The first list is the extinct ones?
>>4168544no the entire list is everything alive
Whenever i make a list its usually everything that survived extinction. the first half is the water creatures that survived second half is the land creatures. since i wanted to have a place to link everything so peeps dont get confused
>>4166570The Vortfish spends most of it's life on the surface of Tumor Trees, and thus it's "ears" have become more articulated and gained the same suction cups as it's tail, allowing it to use them as two extra limbs when climbing the tree.Also, it now has an eyelid it can close around it's eye.
is this how it spreads?
>>4168556Two things I would like to point out:Elephant flaps were able to swim by using their "ears" as fins.Elephant flaps had two eyes, one on the top of their head and one on the bottom.
>>4167171With the loss of the Glob Blankets the shovel-toothed counter Flaps needed a new food sources so they traded their teeth for baleen and began "hunting" planktolurs
>>4167532Flying Chipmunk Flaps can now store water in a hump to breath air for even longer periods of time.
>>4165536To provide the Green Flaps with more oxygen its symbiotic Globs have started to cover slightly larger areas of its body
>>4166775climbing the tumor trees ever higher the Multineedle Lur that live in the tops develop darker skin to better protect them against the sun as well eyes on the front skull and fake eyes on some of the others
>>4166999Eventually, the bastard flaps started to simply fuse together as they birthed. What resulted were abominations to evolution itself. Stomachs and hearts fused together, filling their veins with acid. Their organs became jigsaw pieces crudely cut up and stitched back together. Most of these abominations died as they birthed, but some very unlucky ones were forced to keep living.These are the Bastardous Hordes. They seek to spread pain, for pain is all they know.
>>4166420Blown further in land by the wind the In-land Buds have developed a slimy film to protect them from drying out
>>4168665can i ask. What the heck do these things even eat? they aren't plants. and wasn't their whole thing originally getting creatures to come near and consuming them with the help of micro lurs but nothing swims near them any more and the only flying creature is still out in the ocean. so I'm just curious
not even they were like collecting random nutrients from the water
>>4168677Hmm just checked the description for the land Globs and turns out there aren't any that still produce spores for any filtration feeders to eat so the in land buds are very short lived despite their protection and are simply fertilizing the land so the plants can live there later
>>4168556also agreeing with >>4168592this is confusing and probably shouldn't end up being used. please investigate older versions of the species before posting
>>4168685or atleast update the discription to make more sense
im gonna head off for now though and check in later
>>4168685I think it should be allowed. It works just fine if you assume both eyes have lids and that the fins are now used primarily for climbing.>>4168520Anyone planning to update charts for this? If not, I will later, when I have time.
>>4168855if you update the chart cross out any species not listed in my list
>>4167707>>4168520Hey GMis this supposed to be alive
>>4168911yup thanks for the note
>>4167216Those Pack Pufflurs that lived in tide pools had to deal with occasionally being dehydrated; thus, they evolved the ability to store oxygen bubbles between their hairs, letting them breathe for a few minutes while they wait for the tides to come back.Additionally, small muscular nubs now grow under their largest "spikes", making them more mobile.
>>4168556Vortfish have grown bigger, musclier back tentacles, which they use for propelling themselves thru the water and fighting off challenging predators likely the newly emerging bastardous hordes. It has also developed a dorsal fin for more refined movement.
>>4165726Hitchhiker Globs have taken a radical change following the extinction event. After a mutation that caused spores to not fully grow into adults occurred, the modern CULTIST BLOB has been born! The tentacle roots that were once used to catch currents hav e been repurposed into normal highly mobile roots, grasping about and clinging to anything to desperately stay rooted in the loose sand (most often other Cultist Blobs or rocks). This behavior soon leads to large gatherings of cultist blobs covering the sand of the ocean in a thick blanket. Above each Cultic blob is an additional set of roots as well that look similar to horns, these tentacles gathering excess nutrients that drift in the currents before occasionally dipping themselves into the red photosynthesizing "mouth" that has developed.
>>4167622Hydra Lurs have changed as well following the extinction event. Following a decrease in large organisms that the species could swim around and feed from, the species has once again become independent like its cousin species. The Hydra Lur has developed a set of fins on its body to assist in this development, as well as more advanced eyes that are now capable of detecting color, allowing for faster mobility and an ease in hunting.
>>4167091The earthlur develops an specialized mandible of multiple "beaks" to chew the bark and pulp of plants, aided by external gastric fluids.
>>4166954The Shoveltail Flap continues to specialize itself within its ambush blood sucking niche. Electricity sensing receptors have evolved on the front of the Shoveltail's face to help it detect incoming prey that would threaten its Tumortree home. Small rows of multiple hundreds of needlelike teeth have also developed, with the Shoveltail's throat growing much more flexible to allow it to cut and shred its way into the sides of creature's flesh.
>>4167548The Sandtiger Lur's hairs have become longer, stiffer, and more maneuverable. So maneuverable are these hairs via method of flexing the Lur's root muscles that these hairs have become a sort of simple set of legs. In addition, the hairs around the newly dubbed Mustached SandLur are especially maneuverable, allowing the creature to manipulate food scraps into its now quite large beak.
>>4168520Updating charts with the great die-off to the aquatic golden age...
>>4169544And the rise of the new lineages thus far.
>>4168520Lurs experienced a great die-off as well...
>>4169568But remain hugely diverse, in no small part due to occupying so many distinct niches and making an early move to land!
>>4168520While many aquatic globs perished from Xeolea, devastating marine food webs...
>>4169547Their early colonization of the land proved extremely fortuitous, and created a largely-unexploited food web there. The tumor trees and hitchhiker globs, too, prove hardy survivors, and hitchhikers' cultist decsendants have already started to capitalzie on the absence of globlankets and the mass die-off of sedentary lurrs to take their place!
>>4169593amazing clean up friend and hopefully this truly does bring in a new golden age of life
>>4167180The first true king of the land animals is the Great Green Lur, a descendant of the wily quadruple-ribbed lur. Moving ever further inward to dodge their predator cousin's grasping maws, some of these lurs discovered inland pastures with only tumbleglobs to greet them. The defenceless "pearls" of these globs were no match for even the smaller ancestors of the modern great green lur, which has only gotten larger and slower as a result of this easy living. These lurs swallow tumbleglobs and the dirt around them whole, allowing them to slowly digest in their gullets. The great green lur is impressive to witness, but it is also slow, inefficient, lazy, and defenceless apart from cheer bulk (and, admittedly, its earth-shoveling chomp, supported by a powerful ring of neck muscle, but it has little cause to employ this defensively.
>>4165726Prolific hitchhikers give rise to fairweather friends. The Fairweather Friend glob starts life as a floating fruiting body, trailing spores, before latching on with its strong central tendril to a passing organism. It then clings onto it, bloating and forming a shell-like outer casing around itself. Inside, it develops more and more spores, compartmentalizing them into more fruiting bodies, which is forces through the shell, and then releases when badly jostled or on the death or ill-health of its host, when its shell begins to break down and all remaining such bodies are released at once.This lifestyle leads to a greater amount of offspring produced for less energy, and in more fertile areas, than earlier hitchhiker globs which shot off spores relatively indiscriminately and could be easily eaten or burst.
>>4168613Hurtling chipmunk flaps develop more muscular faces and tails, and a second pair of tusks above the first and their armoured faces. These flaps use sheer chutzpah and a specialized water/air chamber in their hump to keep themselves fed, hurtling up to the surface by adjusting their density and kicking off from the upper globs of a tumor tree; they then leap right out of the water, glide to the food they spot with their eyes, and dive right back down by abruptly venting their chamber again and folding in their wings. Food now obtained, they seek the shelter of another tumor tree or a flock of flocking flaps before any predators can spot them. They will even use this strategy to pick hitchhiker globs off of their large, often dangerous hosts, or to distract bastard flaps and bastardous hordes from their nests.
>>4165976Some Budlurs not only become to the gasses from Devil Bongs but internalize their toxins becoming poisonous themselves
>>4170227*not only become immune
>>4168634The multineedle Lur, growing nice and fat after thousands of years of not needing to really run away from danger has fallen off of the trees that it once called home. The newly dubbed FOOTBALL LUR now spends its days as an idle grazer of the fields of Cultist blobs, not having a care in the world. Its suckers have turned into movable "feet" that carry it across the sands at a snail's pace, with its skulls having lengthened and connected into a series of proper carapace material. Due to having superb eyesight and few predators, breeding selection pressure has begun to effect the species. Football Lurs will shake their plates against one another in a clanging motion to make it appear as if they have more eyes, with females favoring those with a more even distribution of eyes across their body.
>>4167574The gas spewing Devil Bongs thrive as the ocean's population is starved off, leading leagues of rocky plant life to cover large swaths of seabed. These become so prominent that new generations grow upon the mineral remnants of the old, and construct red, spewing reefs high into the sky with an ever growing complexity of conjoined and internal root systems stretching each new generation closer to the water's surface.These conglomerates of drugged stacks are called Devlic Reefs.
>>4167582As the toxicity of the ocean increases, those Shellur still living within the water begin to "Shell Up" in which the gaps that once allowed bare skin to touch the water are now closed off, isolating softer materials from the toxic waters around them. Eye stalks recede into their sockets due to the prevalence of the thin stocks deteriorating while exposed.
>>4170227Sections of Budlurs extend in length to chase the clouds of reef vapor spilling into the ocean, those members of the species that can reach the prime dumping grounds closer to the water's surface with their sucker-filters thrive. At this point they no longer feed on microorganisms and feed exclusively on reef vapors.
>>4166389The Stripeberry Globs have greatly elongated their roots to maximize the force at which the undulations of their symbiotes fling their fruit. Speaking of their fruit, it now begins development near the base of the root and moves downward as it grows, being nestled on it's end and easily dislodged by the time it's ripe. The Symbiotic Microlurs living on this plant have diverged from their ancestors to the point of it being impossible for them to interbreed; as such, they are now known as their own species, the Shaker Worms. They have begun carving small "hives" on the undersides of the Striberry Globs, where they lay their eggs.
>>4166551The Colander Globs have started growing small fruits protected by the same shell as them
>>4166999Some Bastard Flaps changed the positioning of their fins/wings forcing them to "walk" along the dangerous oceanfloor but also allowing to briefly venture on land where they find easy prey. As such these Walking Bastard generally live close to the shore avoiding the Devil Bongs and Devlic Reefs
>>4167185some double-spiked triple-ribs mutated to grow additional tailspikes. Though it is harder for them to move underground this way, they are able to swim again, albeit as slow as they dig.
>>4167171With the loss of their primary food source, some countercolor Flaps have found a new use for the teeth, digging for the nutritious tentacles of Devil Bongs and Devilic Reefs.Being practically at the ocean floor at all times, staying away from the gases, the countercolors have begun to blend in with the reefs, taking on a bright red color to ward off predators.These new specimen are known as Devil Flaps
>>4169975As some chipmunk flaps develop longer, more skinny wings, they develop a different movement pattern, due to increased aerodynamics, they are able to fly significantly faster in the air than their kin, but swim far worse.With no competition in the air, and only requiring the occasional water refill, these Flaps become predatory and use their tusks to impale others mid-flight. Sucking the blood from their bodies to gain the nutrients they require, or even oxygen, should the water in their humps be running out.They are known as Vampire Flaps
>>4169975Kamazi flaps hind legs eventually merged back together to create strong tail-fin for even faster swimming. As a result, they now rely more on their arms and bony belly legs to climb to the top of tumor trees.
>>4168624The Green Flap's symbiotic Glob now covers the whole upper side of it's body, providing it extra energy through it's photosynthesis as well as camouflaging it among the Tumor Trees. As the covered Flap can no longer rely on it's osmosis to breathe, it has developed gills connected to it's mouth.
>>4165753whether it is a lack of nutrients from the sheer amount of competition from other trees, or simply a failed specimen of tumor tree, the Bubble Shrubs resemble their gargantuan cousin in shape only. Unable to grow to the same length, these plants stand no taller than half a vortfish in size.
>>4170376The Vampire Flap's limbs become ingrown, losing most of their mobility but providing a rigid skeleton that supports the rest of the creature.
>>4168658As a Bastardous Horde grows larger and older, the individual beings within it will begin to rot one by one, leaving the rest of the Horde with literal dead weight. As the last of the outer portions die off, newly birthed portions on the inside will eventually eat their way out of the decaying carcass and separate into several smaller Hordes.
>>4170382Kamikaze flaps have developed stronger arms with more foldable wings, and stronger, sharper claws to better latch on to trees and prey.
>>4170410jesus christ how horrifying
>>4170369On their eternal escape from predators, some triple-spike triple-rib lurs have found a new habitat that no predator dare enter - the bastardous hordes.To more reliably enter these creatures without ending up in their stomachs, they developed a drill-like front spike with which to tear through the hordes and nest inside them.The Drill Lurs now safe from predators, face a new problem, lack of food. In response to this, they start feeding on their hosts. With enough Drill Lurs present, a horde may die before reproducing.
>>4170419Can those things breathe air?
>>4170421kinda, they're amphibious they still need liquid to survivebut there's ample blood inside the hordes, right?
>>4170410Curious holes begin to appear on the surfaces of Bastardous Hordes.Those are nostrils, leading to specialized stomaches modified to absorb oxygen from the air.The Bastardous Hordes can now live on land.Run.
>>4170427To combat their severe lack of mobility on land—mainly just furiously undulating around shorelines—more acid filled their bodies, allowing them to spit it out on nearby prey with special tongues, no matter how thick their armor is. This also killed off most drill lur that dwelled in their body.
>>4170435Ah shit, forgot about the repeat rule, won't happen again.
>>4170435The Drill lurs that manage to survive the acid and reproduce develop thick plates of overlapping skin, which prevents drying out allowing them to survive long enough outside one horde to potentially find their way to another.
>>4170419As the Hordes's bodies filled with acid blood, the drill lurs were forced into their rotting portions, where no blood flowed. This helped to reduce the amount of dead weight that the older Hordes carried and made it easier for newly emerging hordes to escape their parent's corpses.
>>4170426All life needs water to survive, it's gotta be *somewhere* in the horde.
>>4170454yeah that's the idea behind infesting them with lurs
>>4166706To ensure the species' survival some Inland Settler Tumbleglobs have turned their core into a seedpod that the Great Green Lur can't digest
>>4170451also can I just askwhat is this?is this separate lur species? is it part of the horde, kinda like a limb?or is this just what a "dead" drill lur looks like?
>>4170465It's a lur, it just changed color because of what it eats, like how flamingos become pink from eating shrimp.
>>4170471oh that's cool
>>4170376Some Vampire Flap who flew further in land than others came across the Great Green Lurs, to become even better at catching this easy prey the lost their signature teeth and instead developed grabbers
>>4170412With a bigger wingspan, a lighter body, and a downward curve at the back of it's wings, the newly dubbed Cancer Gull has become the first species capable of true flight. This makes most of their climbing limbs unnecessary, as they can now directly fly to their treetop nests as they exit the water. In addition, their light weight has made them exceptionally fast.
>>4170369Spending more and more time in water rather than soil, the double-spiked triple-rib developed fused tail-spikes, giving it a hard but flexible fin with which it can swim more reliably, becoming the Finned Lur
>>4170435Going one step up "undulating", the Bastardous Hordes have grown strong claws on their wings, which they use to slowly (but less slowly than before) roll around as monsters of the shorelines, preying mainly on the shallow dwelling fauna and the occasional Cancer Gull who swoops down for food.
I'm gonna' have a lot of organisms to add to the chart! Looks as if we're finally seeing some diversity in land species, too.
>>4169021Turns out that air is much richer in oxygen than water is, so the Shore Pufflurs turn their waterlungs into regular old airlungs, increasing the amount of energy available to them through breathing tremendously, but restricting them to swimming in only the top layers of the ocean. Their stubby limbs become stronger, allowing them to develop a new defensive strategy: when a predator is spotted, the older juveniles will crawl onto land, where they are safe from most hunters. Unfortunately, grown adults are too heavy to use this strategy.
>>4170496The Bile Roller is a truly despicable being, it's overgrown claws forming a rigid cage that barely contains the rotten, belching mass than comprises it's body. A Bile Roller's unbearable stench can precede it by miles.
>>4170374Spending so much time around the reefs, the Devil Flap has developed a pouch in which it filters the reef gases for nutrients, neutralizing it's hallucinogenic effects. Inhaling gases to feed itself, causes it's razor-teeth to erode with age.
>>4170396Growing even smaller in size and reproducing even faster, patches of Bubblegrass starts to spread along the seafloor.
>>4170449Already requiring no water to drench themselves in, Drill Lurs soon specialize their lungs to breathe air rather than filtering oxygen from their surroundings, forming discreet breathing holes on their heads to do so.Now, Drill Lurs no longer merely infest bastardous hordes, but outright hunt them, as well as great green lurs.
>>4167548A different breed of the Sandtiger Lur begin to appear, their change being similar to the change with their fur. Their sharp bristles growing as it becomes more firm yet hollow, creating another coat of defense on the creature.
>>4166734The Budlur's Buds recover the ability to locomote, using a single "finger" to crawl slowly and aimlessly.
>>4170870I don't know whether QM approves of this or notbut I felt like, the drill and why the Lur could go from herbivore to carnivore in an instant, was poorly explained through my postsso I made this handy dandy infographic on how the drills workThe tongue is also present in the quadruple-rib and non-drill triple-ribs
>>4170931this is fine thanks for the explanation.
>>4170812Using a special nozzle, the Shootin' Devil is able to spray concentrated hallucinogenic gas at predators.
>>4170819Bubblegrass now expels photosynthesized oxygen thru bubbles. In addition, Bubblegrass is starting to take over the unclaimed soil of rivers.
>>4170496The claws of the bastardous horde have evolved into fully fledged legs, varying in number and spread all around its body.
>>4167416Some Globelisks that grow especially near the mouths of rivers have roots that extend out of the soil and into the water, leaving unappetizing bronzefruit dangling from roots poking out of riverbeds.
>>4170394Some of the green flaps particularly like to eat >>4171182 adn even chew some of the roots of >>4170278Because of this his "neck" elongated so its gills are less exposed to their gases, thanks to the gills being so far of its mouth already. To better oxygenate the longer neck and generally larger variety of this subspecies, the core of its body is now slightly larger with a bigger nervous central system and bigger internal gills. Due to the subtle changes in coloration because of the colour its prefered prey, ecosystem, this flap is called red-stripped flap
>>4167158The Burrowing Lur has evolved to have much larger frontal jaw-claws that are capable of shoveling away dirt and sand much easier. In addition some leglike teeth have emerged along the bottom of the creature that allow the predator to move much faster through already established tunnels.
>>4170259The Football Lur has grown a sharp properly fashioned chitinous beak that allows it to shear through blob-based lifeforms much easier, tearing off edible chunks.
>>4168665The In-land Buds have so far only persisted by luck and sheer numbers, blooming in favourable conditions and surviving only long enough (if they're lucky) to create a second wave. However, some populations of these weird lurr offshoots have finally come into their own... By mooching off of colander globs. They dwell in their pools of water, floating about and living off of their moisture and the feces of organisms which land there to drink.
>>4169312The Mustached Sandlur has grown greatly in size following a reduction in predators that are able to compete with it. The beast now scurries about on the shallow sea floor admist the Cultist and Devlic Reef forests, hunting the various slow and armored herbivores that have evolved to feed off of these food sources.
>>4169307The Shoveltail flap has evolved a set of highly flexible rings around its neck that allow it to rapidly rotate its head in a circular sawing motion. This makes a simple nibble from a Shoveltail near lethal.
>>4169290Hydra Lurs have evolved a special mucusy membrane around their eggs, with females of the species holding them within a pouch in their stomach until they can find a suitable blobby beast to attach them on.
>>4170883Some of these lurs pursue the land-colonizing lur prey into the shores, developing some primitive protusions to help him stand and try to locate land prey, and a longer body to give its accordion-effect a bit of range. The colour of its frontal hairs is caused actually by decoloration by excess of sunlight in its naturally golden brown hair, wich is actually quite harmful and some of these creature seem to die a lot from mouth infections. They really like the land lurs to go all this way into the shores. Due to these decolorations its known as green whiskers lur.
>>4169282Cultist Globs have managed to evolve a high resistance to the Devlic Reef's hallucinogenics via the formation of a thicker outer skin, this also helping against predation from young herbivores. A new form of reproduction has also emerged, with the "horns" of the cultist blob falling off once they become too large, growing into a new Cultist cluster.
>>4171492In a fascinating case of reversion to a primal form, the fruits of some bronzefruit globelisks fail to fully mature, instead floating about the rivers indefinitely or anchoring to the sides and simply producing more such "bronze river globs".
>>4169294The earthlur evolves to be slightly bulkier tomake space for bigger digestive acid sacs that fuel both its internal digestive system and its external acid, wich now can be spit to deter predators and predigest plants faster, The mouth has adapted to this, becoming larger with a bigger mandible to chew more food and still going almost blind with only its hair sensors guiding it somewhat
>>4171689The thickening nature of The Cult Globs have rendered the younger generations of Football Lur incapable of feeding, leaving them to seek out alternative food sources. Those few that manage to migrate better into freshwater environments are finding ready supplies of Bubblegrass to feed on, along with less toxic river waters. Those that migrate become thinner, and achieve a flowing-row of back spikes that assist them in walking against the current. Shuffling on their belly suckers is still the primary method of transportation.This species is known as The Fubal Grazers
>>4170762Neoteny carries the shore pufflurs' descendants away from the threat of bastardous hordes, bile rollers, and green whiskers. The Land Pufflur reaches sexual maturity without ever returning to water, trading reduced bulk for greater speed and adulthood on land. They move inland, though they are still fond of rivers for the food sources--for one thing, they can stomach bronzefruit and river globs. Earthlur-weakned globelisks are also a choice food source for them, as the largest can batter them to topple them down, and thus feast upon the glob inside.
>>4165353The shaker worms living on >>4170317 sometimes get knocked loose, or find their host dead. Those which can survive and adapt to coexistence with other globs are thus favoured. Gardener worms are symbiotic microlurs adapted to cultivating and caring for globs of all sorts, except perhaps the devil bong and its relatives; they prune away dead growth, help separate fruiting bodies, and shake spores loose, while their more robust "rear head" is used to snap at predators and help drive them off. Though larger than most microlurs, it still takes many of these gardeners in tandem to scare off anything larger.
>>4168611Jumbo baleen flaps are fat and happy on the tiny fruits of the sea: tiny glob spores, planktolurs, and drifting detritus from the ever-expanding devlic reefs sustain them, and in adulthood they are too large for most predators to bother with.
>>4170482Through generations of swimming, the Finned Lur have developed a bigger, more hydrodynamic tail, enabling them to keep up with larger sea dwellers.
>>4171692The inland buds continue to suffer as the small guy of the land. Their mooching nature ends with them suffering as their hosts roll over, or the wandering shoreline abominations end out accidentally landing on top of them. Buds are flattened left and right, but they do finally catch a break.As it turns out Globelisks are the perfect host for uncontrolled buds, >>4171492 who already have the sticky secretions that keep them clinging to other species of globs. Buds also have weak stems, given their evolutionary history as predominantly water plants and their need to be squishy to survive on the backs of mobile creatures. As they find peace connecting to these stationary Globelisks, they grow up their walls and cover the things, feeding predominantly on the fecal matter of species who scour the Globelisks for their fruit or use them as roosting spots.
>>4172477Mostly seems like a fine addition, but a minor point of order here:>Buds also have weak stems, given their evolutionary history as predominantly water plantsBuds are animals
>>4171717The semi circular nature of the River Glob ends out not being the best floating form, as they often thrash about on the river and are cast to the shore, or accidentally sink and are consumed by Fubals.Those that survive are the members of the species who are more adept at maintaining a constant float, guiding them to becoming a flat, floating orange fruit on river surfaces.
>>4172483Squishy bois.Kinda like our world's fungus at this point, plant-like but also not really a plant.
>>4169633As a result of all the dirt in their diet some Great Green Lur lost their namesake coloration. As a result they are easier to spot among the tumbleglobs but stealthier on the many empty areas still present on land
>>4166282In order to better hide among the rocks found in tidepools some Planktolurs grew a flatter body. Unfortunately this also resulted in a loss of mobility thanks to losing their paddle while losing one of their front hooks made it harder to attach themselves to other creatures for a ride
>>4171698The electricity sensing organs of the Shovel Flap have grown into actual eyes while their new color helps to better blend in with the tumor trees they call home
>>4166321Having solved their issue with lack of water by growing in mud the Venus Globs have copied the venus fly trap and filled their shells with a sweet smelling acids to lure prey into to make up for the soil's lack nutrients
looking good yall
Hey guys. I'm not the original chart maker, but I was bored, so here's one for Flaps.
>>4173434You missed the claw hordes.
>>4173469>>4173434Also, the devil flap lineage doesn't descend from the baleen flaps, but is instead parallel to it.
>>4164392Pancake lurs are the larger, flatter descendants of the extremely basal spotted lur. They have larger, more sensitive eyespots, which they use to rapidly slip under soil or into small crevices to avoid predators. They are also stronger swimmers than most other descendants of needle lurs. Their basic lifestyle and diet, however, have hardly changed at all.
>>4173802...And (I think) our most numerous and diverse group, lurs!
>>4165326The Armoured Flaps have fallen behind in the evolutionary race, but re-surge again as they find a home crawling along the shoreline and feeding on the blood of Horde conglomerates. Their wings have narrowed into crawlers that push their figures along the sand, as they are incapable of true flight. These small creatures use their pointed tails to whip against the surface of the monstrous blobs and then suckle the blood from the wound, often forming colonies in which numerous members of the species collectively feed on one abomination at a time.These small leeches are called The Fleeders
>>4167017Though it still occasionally swoops down on animal prey (especially armoured creatures like football lurs, or juvenile shellurs), the Fancy Orange-Blue Flap mostly subsists on Kraken Eye Pearl Globs, which precious else in the ocean can even attempt to eat. An armoured abdominal plate helps resist the stinging throns, and a powerful jaw and increased over all size allows them to break through the tough shells; their body has become resilient against the toxins, as well. Their fin/wing membranes have become translucent and pearlescent, easier to rip but fast to heal and a very eye-catching display structure for mate signaling, just like the matching membrane on their head.
>>4174229To more easily drink the blood from Horde conglomerate Fleeders develop a paralyzing poison within their needles
>>4170291The Shellur develop a lengthy hook beak that is used to delve into the sand and pluck various species of Lur Worm from the earth. These shuffling shelled beings predominantly come to inhabit the low tide areas of the shore, and only make occasional exertions into dry land to feed off the Lurs that are forced to surface after high tide.
>>4167416To stop Land Pufflur from eating their bronzefruits some globelisks grow spikes on their fruits
>>4167017Preying the unchallenged Fubal Grazers of freshwater rivers, the Spade Flap has developed a longer tail and vertical fins to better swim upstream.
>>4174489Size: 30 cm long
>>4172485With the number of Fubals decreasing some Lilly Globs growing particular still and shallow waters grew their their roots long enough to embed themselves in the ground in order to get more nutrients
>>4171492Some bronzefruit have sprouted in the middle of rivers. To combat strong currents, the newly dubbed Globomids have grown stouter and more triangular.
>>4174503Size: 100 cm wide, up to 300 cm tall
>>4174383After many ages of staying on the shores, Globelisks are starting to slowly creep inland. With much sturdier soil, they can now reach absolutely MASSIVE sizes.These are known as Globolithes.
>>4171459Lumpgrass has started to grow on land, becoming small in size but extremely numerous.
>>4174229The Quadrupedal Fleeder has gotten much beter at quickly moving on land
>>4170364The Bastard Paddler's fins have become more limblike, still allowing it to swim but also allowing it to more gracefully venture land. In addition, it is also starting to venture into freshwater for prey.Additional Notes: to finally separate it from >>4166944 , Bastard paddlers offspring are now bastardous at birth. In addition, its fused nature will allow it to self-fornicate.
>>4174522>>4174512A bigger variant of lumpgrass called Lumpmoss has started to form around globolithes.
>>4174512Unlike their ancestors Branched Globolithes have chosen to grow their fruit far out of reach of any Lurs.
>>4174570>>4174568Bad timing there, I accidentally broke the no repeat rule. Oh well anyone can see it wasn't on purpose
>>4174574no ya didnt that rule is if you evolve the creature prior not the creature it evolved from your good
>>4174577also that other one was lumpgrass not globolithes
>>4174581Since >>4174568 linkred to lumpgrass and globlithes I wasn't sure which it counted as but lumpgrass does make more sense
>>4174512Some globelithes grow their fruit on the tip of their spires, safe from herbivores. In time, the bronzefruit lost it's bitter taste and spikes, growing shiny light grey and obtaining a citrus-like taste. The fruit it bears is now called silverfruit.
>>4167180As quadruple-rib lurs are forced to more and more stay above ground, they develop small nostrils to filter oxygen out of the air.
>>4170478Now that its gills require almost no water to breathe air, the Forest Gull can now reside inland. It most often chooses to hollow out particularly big lumps of lumpmoss growing on Globolithes, where it can be safe from land predators. It is omnivorous, but it only really hunts river-dwelling prey if its nest is near a river.
>>4174616Size: 60 cm long, 28 cm wide
>>4169633With the advent of lumpgrass steppes, some green lurs make it their habitat, developing large, flat and sticky tongues with which they can easily gobble up large quantities of lumpgrass.A single green lur can dominate large swaths of steppe, growing to ever larger sizes.The Giant Green Lur now dwarfs even his great cousin.
>>4174562Some bastard paddlers grow more terrestrial as adults, becoming bastard striders. They store huge quantities of water within their complicated bodies to allow them to breathe on land, though they must still stay close to a water source.Their offspring remain aquatic, though, and are thus generally kept in ponds or tidepools somewhere near the centre of the parents' territorial range.
>>4172436To hide from it's predators, the finned lur begins to burrow itself in the ground like it's ancestors, developing a green tail with which it blends into the masses of bubblegrass at the ocean floor.
>>4174648Some finned lur's heads begin developing into a mace-like shape, allowing them to both burrow faster, but also fend off smaller predators.
>>4174612due to being born on land, some quadruple ribs develop a powerful, single squish-rib set, allowing them to propel themselves at far greater speeds than before.Due to living on land with no physical protection, both quadruple-ribs and the new spring-ribs wear down their primary method of locomotion, growing slower and more vulnerable to predation the older they are.
>>4170870Specializing themselves further, the horde-hunting Drill lurs grow bone hooks at the end of their tail-spikes to more reliably attach themselves to hordes from either inside or outside, increasing the chance to take them down and feed the next generation.
>>4174616Some forest gulls eventually are able to specialize almost entirely in eating the high-up silverfruits and bronzefruits of globolithes, having virtually no competition at first. They become increasingly robust, muscular, and territorial against other gull-flaps. Their wings and tail fins reduce, allowing gliding and limited bursts of flight so as not to perish if they fall, but their strong tail and legs, and articulated fingers and joints, are specialized for climbing and grappling other gulls.Not yet purely herbivorous, they will gladly supplement their diet with the occasional meal of flap-flesh, even consuming rivals of their own species.These are the troll-gulls.
>>4174654Double-evolution rule. You aren't (generally-speaking) meant to evolve the same line twice in a row.
>>4174647Bastard Leapers have grown powerful, double-jointed back legs that allow them to swiftly leap across the land and swim in the water.
>>4174671well I was gonna do the second from the get-go and I thought maybe that's too much for a single evo and split in 2sorry about that, I'll evolve it some other time again then if QM decides this isn't canon
>>4174495With their roots merged into one the Strong Rooted Lilly can even grow and remain in place in rivers with strong currents
>>4174673Size: 25 cm
>>4174616To combat the growing number of troll-gulls, Arrowtusk Gulls have grown longer upper tusk with flattened heads for piercing through tough skin and ripping up insides.
>>4172513Some Brown Great Green Lurs lose their majestic size over the generations, becoming small, hard to detect scavengers, feasting on the carcasses of the dead.They are known as the Tiny Brown Great Green Lurs.
>>4174678ill leave it for now just be carefull in the future. its pretty active right now so you couldve waited
>>4174703I will, sorry QM>>4174698that's a bit of a mouthful don't you think?
>>4174706so are the towering tumorus trees but no one seems to care XD so shrug
>>4174698Some of these lur became even smaller. They were called the Even Tinier Mahogany Brown Not-So-Great Not-So-Green Lurs.
>>4174717ok but that might be too long XD
>>4171182Having developed a secondary spray system, which infuses it's spray with stomach-acid, the Shooting Devil is able to not just confuse, but outright maim it's predators.Would-be attackers however are now alerted to it's deadliness by the menacing face-pattern around it's nozzle.
>>4174723what are you saying anon?we can just acronym itcall it a ETiMaBNoSGSoG
>>4174723Aww and here I was planning to make the Hairless Pink No longer Brown Slightly Less Tiny Mahogany Brown Not-So-Great Not-So-Green Lur
>>4174717>>4174723You question my power?A select number of these lur become too small for the human eye to see. These curious creatures became known as the Unbelievably Tiny Three Year Old Feces Brown Once Upon a Time Great and Green but Not Anymore Lurs.
>>4174732okay trying to pronounce my retarded acronym, I got "Edmabskok"if we drop the D and first K make it "Emabsok"then it sounds like a real namewhat do you think anon? >>4174717
>>4174741this is going to be called an invalid evolution cause there is no reasoning given and. we also need the file to be visible to be valid evolution. you just put the size on the side like some other people have
>>4174717also i might cut this off anyway for the same reasoning. and this was a double postSorry guys .
not double post evolution i mean
>>4171472As the Bastardous Hordes grow and multiply, their bodies shift. Faster, leaner, more energy-efficient. No longer dropping dead from the mere act of being alive. Their claws begin to almost weave together as they all shift towards the backs of the beasts, grappling each other and forming a rigid supporting strut for the bodymass to latch onto.
>>4174760these things just get grosser and grosser, don't they?
>>4174755>>4174750No problem, it's a joke evo anyway.
>>4174712TRULY towering tumor trees.
>>4174728The Shootin' Tootin' Devil develops a set of bellows around it's sprayer, serving two functions at once: firstly, it enhances their spitting power, allowing them to shoot even farther than before; and secondly, by rapidly undulating the bellows the creature is able to produce a loud noise, similar to a burp, allowing it to alert friend and foe alike. To hear the throaty calls of their brethren, the Shootin' Tootin' Devils also develop some vibration-sensitive filaments right below their disguise. It's not a very good hearing tool, but it's a start.
Let's that again, this time with a readable description>>4174229Despite their lack of eyes some Fleeders became so grossed out by their prey, the Bastardous Hordes, that they moved further land inward, eventually coming across the Great Green Lurs and it's relatives. To easier reach these creatures the Lur Eating Fleeders lost their crawlers placing them c closer to the ground.
>>4174503>>4167509The development of particularly strong roots to keep its ground in fast currents has attracted some Peacock globs that want the nutrients of the river bed without being flushed away. The development of the roots is in part in competition of the globelisk to keep enough nutrients to itself and fend off these pseudo-parasitic peackock globs
>>4170449Drill Lurs that didn't adapt to life on land, though low in numbers, still persists. These Drill Lurs have made their ways into the rivers instead, where they feed off of the yet untouched plant life.
>>4174673Some of these bastards further evolve to leave behind redundant organs, reducing the size of its third eye to a support role, and improving the efficiency of its eyes in general to better detect the details of its land environment. Its front stripe has developed a characteristic pattern that tries to imitate a mouth to intimidate predators. Its slightly smaller than its predecessor at 17 to 21 cms
Hey can i request that yall only link on top the main species your evolving then link the species related in the description? this will make things easier to sort later
>>4174698After some Tiny Browns enter a symbiotic relationship with their slighty larger, and more successful cousins, the Drill Lurs, the Tiny Browns develop small eye slits which don't provide poor eye sight, but give the ability to distinguish color.Using their new found ability, they stick to the more social purple Drill Lurs, which protect the Tiny Brown's brood, in exchange for having acid cleaned off of them.
>>4175051I just realized I forgot to mention that they have gills now, as part of permanently staying in the rivers.I mean you can see them in the picture, but I genuinely thought I added that when I had them adapt to river lifemy bad folks
>>4175065I'm kinda retarded QMcan you show me what you mean by that?
>>4175083for example this>>4175032 you would first link >>4174503thenThe development of particularly strong roots to keep its ground in fast currents has attracted some Peacock globs >>4167509 that want the nutrients of the river bed without being flushed away. The development of the roots is in part in competition of the globelisk to keep enough nutrients to itself and fend off these pseudo-parasitic peackock globsMaybe or perhaps for situations like this provide separate images and posts since its two different species ?i know there are better examples of situations like this where what I'm saying is useful where only one of the linked species is actually being evolved
>>4175097ah okay, so you want us to link every species related to the new evo as well as the parentdid I get that right?
>>4175102well no not nessesarily. just. dont crowd the links at the top of the evo because it gets confusing
like people are getting confused which line something belongs to because they provide a link to the related species at the same spot the evolution link should be
>>4171672The green flap continues developing its size and elongating its neck to better ignore the acid spitting defenses of >>4174787A bigger body and "fin" was needed and also the photoreceptor globs that act like eyes are starting to develop a specialized sight to distinguish the red patterns of its prey. The size of this creature is near 85 cms.
