Life springs into existence on a lonely planet, saturating a wide archipelago with several species. Whether they're natives, some sort of extra-terrestrial monster, or interdimensional lifeforms, they're here to stay (hopefully) and partake in the bountiful resources of this watery world! In the end, which will claim dominance over the planet and become the dominant species? ==Got slots for 5-8 players! I'm the Crabs and Gloupes from the past few games, and got permission from Qm Bid to run of these. Some previous threads, in case anyone wants to catch up and see how it works.>>5054120http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/4946647/ http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/4925190/ >Joining the gameTaking part is really simple! If you're not sure, click on a previous thread to see how submissions worked.Draw your species in Paint (or whichever simple doodling program) and post it in your comment.Tell us something about the function of your species, and decide where it starts on the map. No starting on the same tile, or adjacent to another player, so it's on a first-come-first-serve basis.I'll stat your species accordingly and give you a starting sheet. >ActionsEach turn you can do 1 of 2 actionsExpand your speciesRoll 1d3+1, the score is the maximum amount of tiles your species can expand to. Choose a tile with your species on the map and 3 adjacent tiles nearby. Your species will then expand from this tile to those adjacent tiles. You can also choose to migrate them by 2 tiles.>Evolve your speciesRoll 1d100Choose a species on a tile that you want to evolve, then choose 1 attribute to improve of the 6 base attribute: Environment, Size, Sensors, Camouflage, Digestion, Toxic.according to your fluff and score, your species will also receive a special evolution trait that will change their playstyle and help them.More detailed rules are in the op image, and there'll be a second post to clarify some things. Please feel free to ask for clarification if there's anything you'd like to know.--The game will update daily, and each turn, I'll ideally want to finish it within 24 hours. Looking for people who can commit! And would love to see some new players too.
Here's a guide on how to take your turn. PLEASE attach a photo when you do, with arrows pointing to expansions. And if you evolve, please clearly state what attribute you're changing. Flavor text is encouraged, but at least add in the plain term in brackets. If you make a mistake in posting, I'll gladly change it for you as long as nobody else has posted yet, or if it's a small enough change to be justified. This only applies to mistakes in phrasing or maybe forgetting to use a free expansion, and only if you realise in a short enough timespan. If you make a turn that's valid, but just turns out to be a bad move, no takebacksies.-The special tile types are:Forest- Present on some land tiles, and provide +1 camo to creatures. The ones with palm trees and normal trees are the same, it’s just aesthetic.Swamp- +1 toxic to creatures. Swamps are in the shallows. Mountains: creatures can thrive self sufficiently at +1 additional size, but receive a thriving disadvantage if their sensors + digestion is less than their size
And lastly, here's the current empty map. Once we have all the joiners, we can begin. Hope to see some interesting creatures!
Reserving a Slot :))
is this seat taken?
>>5063319It sure isn't, have a seat.
i arrive and can i reserve a spot?
>>5063325i would like too possibly reserve a tile for my entrance?
>>5063327Yeah, mark it out with an X on the map or something.
>>5063331X marks the spot of my arrival
Reserving this spot
The Tataka. Beings of bone, flesh and magma. Born from deep beneath the soil and stone of this land, they rise above in search of food. Utilizing their long serpentine bodies and lava-fueled digestion systems, they search the crags and ashfields of their volcanic territory as packs, in search of their next meal
>>5063363Here's your statcard! I've added them to the spot on the map too.
>>5063306The TentorThis is a species of bottom-feeding mollusk. It spends most of its time searching for food with its tentacles be that plant or animal. Their bodies are made of soft structure but are protected by a hard shell-like structure from any would-be predators.
>>5063397>>5063399Here's your card!
Yoinking this spot for myself.
The LimubudParasitic algae, the Limubud's sweet-smelling and edible flowers lure in its prey. Within these treats hide their 'seeds', which log themselves in the digestive tract of their predator, and begin to kill it via starvation, or suffocation. From the corpse comes another Limubud, repeating the cycle.
Here's the map so far.
Chakalaka (herbivore)The Chakalaka huge pondering beasts do not feed on simply the flesh or organic matter of creatures that it abstains from but of the "natural" energies/fuel around it after some processing stranded upon this world after being left behind by there creator who knows why
>>5063429Here you go.
>>5063306Slugmaker from the first thread here,. This time I'll will be playing as the Shrum, a type of slowmoving mushroom that once it gains to move can no longer feed and reproduces by spreading it's spores on carrion which the young then feed on in the same way as regular mushrooms.
>>5063572I would like to claim this as my starting point
>>5063572>>5063574Here's your stat card!
At 5 players, we have the minimum to begin. I'll still wait since one player has reserved a space, and there's still room in the world for more participants.
>>5063306the glidder from the previous game (and beakwurm for the more previous one) player hereThe Creature of mine is the Firenewt.Lizard/salamander esque creatures that considers volcanic blasted wastelands their home. they feed on mainly ash and sulfur from the latter they extract volatile chemicals mixing with their own bodily fluid and the byproduct are coat specific parts of their body (the yellow ones) and if this liquid makes contact with any non Firenewt the acidic compound overrides the feelers and start to burn it with the "heat of a melting steel bar"
>>5063618just blast me somewhere where are volcanoes
>>5063625>>5063618Here you go! >>5063319 has a reservation, and there's one more player in the evogame discord who's in the middle of his submission. So I think we can only take one or two more people at most on top of them.
>>5063646Slerks are parasitic worms usually found in tropical climates that infect hosts via oral consumption and slowly replace their spines. Once complete the host's body becomes a seed bed for more Slerks to be born from.
>>5063774Mark out their location on the map, please! They’ll have to be at least one tile away from other creatures.And that’s the last free spot I have open. Two are reserved.
>>5063306Still got room?
>>5063844I suppose I can do 10, since you’re the last of the returning players. Hop in!
>>5063850What if MORE?
>>5063844I know it's just a coincidence but if you were to switch the first two letters of your name you would have my last name
>>5063875 Nice to meet you mister Bouman! >>5063306The Delgi are a weird kind of species, descending from an herbivorous forest dwelling species that moved to the nearby plains to feast on their tasty grass. There, a native species of insect found a place to nest, building colonies of chewed up fiber on the backs of these relatively huge things. The Delgi found themselves capable of finding better food by following the sounds the colony made, while the insects were happy to have found a moving colony- before that, they had to relocate every time the surrounding fields ran dry of food.The hives are quite toxic to species not adapted to eating them, while the Delgi themselves are capable of seeing many things with those enormous eyes, the insects suddenly hiding in their backs being another sure indication of a predator nearby
In this world a cold... A "Symbiotic Guts" cannot be "friend" or "ecosystim partner" in the socieity... denied level 2 ability - "Symbotic Graft" too many time. It is only one option... Lonely.., and WAR...>ability: there can only one of this species, ever, but every tile traveled is "conquered" for the rest of the game
>>5063774>>5064115Here's your skill. Working on the rest. And once I'm done, you guys can start making your moves.
>>5064052>>5064119And with that, we have enough to start! One final player still has a reservation, but I'll work out how to slot them in later. I'll post the map in a moment.
##NEW TURNTurn 1 begins! Remember that you need 3 populations of one species in order to evolve, so the only thing you can really do on turn 1 is expand, unless you have some skill that does otherwise. Let the game begin! I'll be ending the turn in 24 hours, or when everyone has replied.

>>5065198All good! Put it in brackets at the end for further evos.Also it seems like I've given them the wrong name label after reading the filename, sorry! Fixed it in future updates.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>5065115Dragonewtin the mountanious regions the newts has take advantage of the hot currents and (kinda like all flying lizards) strechened their ribs into gliding wings. the surface of the wings are the same yellow poison dispensing skin as theri tails and bellies. now they are capable of gliding and also has more poisonous surfaces (and a slight visual rewamp)the location where they evolve is the mountainous volcano tileand the attribute they gain is +toxic
>>5065262>"Geyser Glider"- Using volcanic geysers, this species glides from place to place, riding the currents to reach greater heights.IG: Can expand up to 2 tiles away as long as one of those tiles is traced through a volcanic tile. Gains a thriving advantage on volcanic tiles and can thrive self-sufficiently at up to size 2 on volcanic tiles.
>>5065115What does advantage and minor advantage do?
>>5065351It determines thriving order. Under the thriving section in the first post, it falls under number 3. Thriving advantages/disadvantages stack to determine who thrives on a tile, in the event that nobody is eating or being eaten. 'minor' and 'major' are considered to be a sort of 0.1 modifier.
>>5065355Why do you evolve at a specific location? Does the evolution only apply to one of your species?
>>5065359Yep, you pick one tile, and the new generation starts from there. Here's an example of how it'll look next turn, after everything is processed. Only one tile evolves, and they'll expand from that point.
>>5065360Ok one final question. How does environment work? Is it where you can live or is it where your species can thrive? For example the Takata has the environment for mountains yet he also has a species on a forest tile.
>>5065366It's where they can thrive. The Takata on the forest tile isn't thriving, as it's impossible to thrive on a tile you're not adapted to. They can exist, but they're first on the list to go extinct if the tile gets saturated with species. You can evolve to live on a tile if you're adjacent, or on a tile of that type. And if your creature evolves while neither on, nor adjacent to an environment, it'll lose the adaptation for that tile.Picking the tile counts as the attribute for the evolution. But there's an alternate way to gain the ability to survive on it, which is to gamble on getting a trait to survive on an environment. This comes with disadvantages, but is permanent and won't be lost if the species evolves elsewhere.

I’ll wait a little extra for Slerk and Tentor today, past the 24 hour mark. But if they don’t reply in a few hours, I’ll skip.
>>5064954As time goes on the family of Tentor gradually develops a tail. They use this new development to float along with the ocean current while resting. This allows them to travel much greater distances than before since now they can be moving at all times. Due to the most vibrant of the Tentor being eaten, they slowly develop a form of camouflage allowing them to blend in with the ocean floor as a rock.After such a large change this species is is entirely new and is thus called the TentoriI want an expansion trait and +1 camo

Rolled 34 (1d100)
>>5065525>>5065526>"Supply Cache"- By utilising tools and storage, this species is able to prepare in advance for lengthy journeys. Setting aside stashes for later pays off in the long run.IG: When migrating, this species can migrate up to 2 extra tiles by tracing through 'claimed' tiles. These claimed tiles do not consume the migration movement of two spaces. They also automatically claim tiles that they migrate onto if they fulfil the conditions.
>>5065789>"Ocean Stride"- Using their long legs, these creatures walk across the seafloor and reach far and wide. IG: May expand up to 2 tiles away as long as the path to the target tile is traced through an Ocean tile. Major advantage on Ocean tiles.
>>5065919>>5065929Here's your trait! Remember to let me know which tile they'll evolve on. The way Shrum does it here is perfect and preferable (Though perhaps zoomed out a bit: >>5065164.

Though they can't survive on their own at this increased size, this species has formed a rudimentary society and has started farming its smaller cousins.IG: When expanding into a tile, you can choose species on that tile which you will refrain from eating. Species with this trait may ignore 1 trait of another species that could be avoided by intelligence (for example, may ignore a trait that allows other species to hunt via "Traps" or by "Luring" or "Fooling" the prey).

And so, as natural selection does, the survivors were the ones best fit to thrive in this hostile environment: the ones who could not be hunted.And why was it that they could not be hunted? Because their insects were blessed with stingers filled with a painful poison, allowing them to Pierce the skin of hunters who tried to get a bite out of their carriers, even developing the tactic of stabbing through the colony’s walls in case the hive itself was bitten or hit in any way

>>5067095>move The shambling hives move, ever greater in numbers though still few overall- they may not be many, but they ARE densely populated, and it truly is a sight to behold, all those buzzing swarms flying overhead, almost composing symphonies as the colonies exchange breeding pairs of prices and princesses, ensuring the birth of new hives once the Delgi’s breeding season begins. And so, and so, they move on to the lands of their feared predators, hoping for luck and plentiful fields this treacherous enemy might’ve overlooked
>>5068134>"Full Terran"- In one fell swoop, this species has spontaneously developed the ability to live outside of the volcanic region.IG: Can thrive on land tiles with no penalty. Species who do not have Digestion higher than your toxic by +1 or more, take a disadvantage when eating your species.Unfortunately, camo isn't valid as you're only size 1, so I've put the point into sensors. I'm making the post, so it's too late to change it.
>>5067232>>5067236During this era, most of the Tatakos spend their time creating vast nests beneath the shallows, heating the water up significantly and making themselves at home within the mangroves. A new lifeform encroaches on their territory, but in the toxic waters, they're largely ignored. >>5068095The buns move to the right, where they soon encounter melting ice caps! The temperature of the world is rapidly increasing. Perhaps it has something to do with the constant veins of geothermal energy being released into the surrounding air. >>5068139>>5068142>>5068177As they expand outwards, the new generation of Delgi rapidly outcompete their younger brethren, and claim dominance over the continent.

>>5068623>"Pack Hunting"- The branching-off Hive learns to fight as one unit, to take down far larger prey. IG: Once on your turn as a free action, you can combine 2 tiles with the same thriving species adjacent to each other to become a "Herd". A tile of your choice will be emptied, the other tile will be marked as the "Herd". Herds count as one size larger for the sake of predation only, and have the ability to eat creatures of the same-size if their sensors are higher than the prey's camoflage. A heard takes up one space on a tile, and counts as one thriving tile, but counts as two pops for the purpose of evolution. Evolving a herd will then split it back into two species on one tile.

IG: Can thrive self-sufficiently at size 3 on Shallows and Ocean tiles. However, no longer gets to choose whether to wipe out lower species or not.

IG: If a tile is oversaturated, this species enforces the following before the rest of the survival criteria are processed: Creatures that are of a smaller size, have less camouflage than this species' sensors, and do not have a 'fighting' related trait are eradicated.

These champions stand firm and prevent any sort of strife within their territory, ensuring they reign on top.IG: If this species cannot be eaten, other species on the tile cannot be eaten as well. Minor advantage on ocean tiles.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>5073348+ digestion.Having lived with the dragonewts the poisonshrum have adapted to add their acid to their spores allowing them to break dead bodies in order to absorb the nutrients within
>>5073361>"Spores of Sulfur"- This species uses toxins from decomposing organisms to break down their own flesh, helping them to survive on volcanoes.IG: These species are now able to thrive on Volcanic wastelands, can only expand 1d2 instead of 1d3+1 on Volcanic tiles.

created by a person the guts a magnificent creature of a path never taken of a reality never visited that we glimpse into with a still mirror
Made by me, on the current situation of everything trying to fuck me including my past evos
>>5074011i recommend evolving the purple in like the central tile so it wins out in the top you will need a smart trait for that also it would be a good idea to expand more as this shows how vulnerable you are so concentrated
>>5074013also feels sad about dragon newt could probably roll too expand too escape into the sea
>>5074069also deep sadness for newt they just got railed by this also i sort of wish the vulcano event would expand ashlands as it is also molten rock flowing out and cooling
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>5073348well is time for another stupid move, i have done nothing all game, as the guts die my buns are just having a good day"as the technology demand becomes bigger and stupid decitions are made like making jobs in food making and dont giving enought anything so the workers can live a question is still in the bun minds, why dont we have wheels, so they made a tanks using special g1 farm for bio weapons, slow and is the same as a g1 but bigger and can pack a good punch like a hole in a nest wall hole, the buns are stupid and how the hell are they alive is a mystery but they arent that to stop being alive, sometime"

>>5073595>>5073620>"Ocean Stride"- With their large size and adapted tails, these creatures are able to move vast distances across the ocean.IG: This species may travel up to 2 tiles away with their first 3 expansions, as long as the first tile is traced through an ocean tile.
>>5075230Woah! Haha whoops, how did that get there?

Rolled 2 + 1 (1d3 + 1)>>5073348Let me see
>>5075503Small correction sorry
>>5075509Just expand its what you rolled for and you can expand back into your homeland AND have enough to evolve by dumping 2 on your home tiles and ONE in the ocean
>>5075509Yeah, you already rolled the dice and got your expansion, it wouldn't be fair to let it be changed to a migration or evolution. You're going to have to expand.
>>5075520Does migration even work that way where they can just move every species at once? So also a invalid migration?
>>5075522Yes, you can only move the primary species, and secondary species expand as per normal.
>>5075520Then expand if its still viable.
>>5075572Yep. Send me the map. I'll be posting in an hour.
>>5075572DUDE use all of the dice or you will not be able to evolve it next turn dont do a bun man

Rolled 29 (1d100)>>5073348>evolve this purple bitch here into the Chad Comelgi (+1 camouflage)The struggling Durelgi are slowly dying out amidst the fierce competition with their ancestors, swarm fighting swarm in a fratricidal clash, while their enemies strengthen.Then, as if through some proto-messianic prophecy had come to fruition, a new species makes its debut: the Comelgi.With their pacifying musks, they possess the ability to coordinate the swarms of their ancestors into something much greater: a unified species, one single swarm, to assist the entirety of the species as a whole instead of single herds
>>5075610>"Messiah"- By using its pheromones to coordinate its fellows, this species manages to slow down infighting among its cousins, and stand firmly at the top to keep watch over them. IG: Advantage when sharing a tile with other members of your branch, but disadvantage when not doing so.
>>5075608>"Living Monstrosity"- Within their workshops, the Guts brew up creations of their own to spread across the planet. IG: This species does not receive an attribute this evolution. When on a house tile, this species is considered to be one size larger. As part of the migrate action, you may choose to remove a house tile that you are standing on, transforming it into an unclaimed tile. Your migration destination will then have the house tile moved onto it. When migrating with a house tile, you may choose to eradicate one creature up your size, that does not have more camouflage than your sensors, and does not have a self-defense/fighting trait. Thriving disadvantage when on a house tile.
Rolled 6 (1d6)Rolling to see if there's a crisis.
Rolled 1 (1d6)>>5075629The world continues to destabilise. Rolling to see exactly what crisis strikes...>1: Solar storm1d4 random tiles on the northmost and 1d4 tiles on the southmost rows will get Ionized by the solar storm, all none-thriving species on those tiles will die>2: Tsunami floods1d4 land tiles adjacent to oceans will become "Shallows", all species on adjacent ocean tiles will automatically migrate into the shallow tile.>3: Meteor strike1d10 random tiles will be hit by meteors, killing anything on those tiles. New "Crater" tile will be created as a new subtype biome of the tile it is on, craters can sustain life up to +1 size and allow 2 different species to thrive within. If meteor hits ocean nothing happens, if it hits shallows the species get eradicated but a "crater" wont be created.>4: Rise of the KrakenA "Kraken" species spawn in a random ocean tile. They have the size of 4, and 1d4+1 point in each attribute (rolling 5d4 to check)They have a trait which allows them to exist self sufficiently in size 4 on water. They eradicate everything they eat, and are eradicated if eaten.They expand 1 tile in a random direction that has a species on it each turn. They stop expanding when there are 4 Krakens on the map.> 5: Alien probeAn alien ship probes the planet, and abducts 1 tile with a thriving species from each player. Players get to choose which thriving species they give away.> 6: Drought1d3 shallows tiles will become land tiles. Land tiles directly adjacent to it will receive a new 'DROUGHT' subtype. Droughted Land tiles give -1 camouflage to species on it, and species can only thrive at -1 size less.
Rolled 4, 3 = 7 (2d4)>>5075635Lots of rolls to make.

>>5075638>>5074320After reaching the edge of the Northern seas, the giants turn back and begin their long march back to their ancestral home, boasting new strength that they've found along the way.>>5075418The Limuterra spreads across the swamps, turning the environment into itself and voraciously consuming its lesser brethren. Some make their way to the volcanoes, while others slither into place beneath giants.>>5075503Sensing upheaval in their region, the Dragonewts dive into the ocean, desperate to survive the increasing amount of seismic activity. Disaster is sure to strike soon. And meanwhile, the serpents move south and feast on their younger cousins to become the dominant species in the plains. >>5073353The constant drilling of the Tatakas into the earth's core has allowed magma to spew to the surface, disrupting the faultline that the archipelago sits on. After generations of this, the volcanoes finally roar in protest, bursting into devastating explosions of fire, brimstone, lightning and death. The dragonewts are wiped from their homes, and in the ensuing chaos, the Delgi are wiped out by the ash raining from the sky. Three whole populations are removed from the face of the earth, leaving the land filled with surviving newts. And to top it off, a freak ion storm begins brewing. Beautiful aurora borealis streak across the sky, but soon enough, they'll blast the icy plains with lethal radiation and wipe out lesser species.
>>5075642>## NEW TURNTurn 10. The second crisis is upon us already. The game will end after the last one hits. 38 hours from now, I'll move on. We're in the endgame now. Actions:>Expand/MigrateChoose a tile where you are thriving and roll 1d3+1 to expand (Remember to attach an image so instructions are unmistakable). You have a secondary expansion with all species that don't use the main action. (UNCLEAR TURNS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED)or>EvolveChoose a tile with your species, draw and describe their next evolution on that tile! (Choose one attribute to increase outright, and then depending on what you've written for lore, I'll assign a trait.

Rolled 3 (1d3)Rolling for Nakatoa G5 Expansion
The Nakatoa G5s swim deep into the ocean. Now that they have grown once more, they are perfectly adapted to hunting the perfect prey; Leviathans. They build the first of many oceanic magma tunnels, larger and wider for their humongous bodies.Tatako continue to spread through the Volcanic wastes, encountering a strange new algae in the water aquifers of their new home.The Nakatoa G4's finally unite, a small group of gigantic pack hunters sliding into the ocean to join their brethren. A defensive wall, to stand tall.
Rolled 71 (1d100)>EvolveThe Limufruit springs to life from the depths of the Purple Sea, flowering up into new and strange fruit. These seed-dense morsels are colored golden, aiming to entice the herbivorous giants on their borders into forgetting their filtering lifestyle and indulging in the sweet nectar within.>Attribute gained: Toxic.
>>5076102>"Enticing Fruits"- By utilizing new fruiting bodies, this species is able to spread out further than before. IG: Luring now pretends to have -2 toxic and camouflage. Herbivorous creatures can now be affected by luring, and will not be considered eating as long as they are lured.
>>5076691Will the guts be moving the house with them, or activating its ability against a creature on the destination tile?
>>5076694Wait, the ability is an "either-or" thing? I lose the house if I destroy a creature on the target tile?
>>5076695Kek>>5075628>>5076696When you migrate, you can take the house with you and ride it along like a mount, which removes it from the root tile. Or you can choose to migrate the guts without moving the house, which allows them to leave it behind and go around as their size 2 self. Destroying something with it doesn't cost anything or consume the house on the destination, it's just that the house is no longer on the original tile.
>>5076695I have been informed that apparently Shrooms are the only edible thing on that tile and have changed my strategies accordingly.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>5075642Is that time of the day isnt it"the buns the most advance and smart creature in the planet, ok who wrote this not even the buns believe this crap, the buns a specie that is alive by divine intervention, stupid luck or the two they arent the best one but they are trying there best to survive, with time they have become better at making tech with what they can salvage from the parts that the titans drop for one reason or another, they had some big ego until they found THE ORBS, they started to ponder on the orbs seeing thing that they beilve was the past, present or alternate dimensions, it took them bulding 1 city and growing bigger to understant that they were seeing picture of other orbs, now they can work the orbs and be able to communicate great distances and shoot lasers from the orbs, but learning about the lasers only took them 1 day and a lot of injured buns to discover that and how to use it"
>>5076877>"Semi-Stability"- The Buns have integrated even more Chakalaka tech into their society, and have developed culturally. Using their numbers, they're able to spread out and exhibit the strength of many. They've also become better at conserving resources.IG: This species no longer goes extinct if it is not eating at the end of the turn. However, it goes extinct if it is not eating, and is also being eaten.

Rolled 2 (1d6)>>5077418You’re correct, I made a mistake there. In that case, the last roll isn’t valid and the Curral down south will survive. Making skill after I get out of bed.
Rolled 2 + 1 (1d3 + 1)>>5075642Expand
>>5077505>"Titanic Aggression"- This caste of Dormin becomes stronger to ward off any attackers, ensuring the success of their kind.IG: This species may ignore a trait that allows species to eat creatures of the same-size through brute force methods. It also ignores one 'self-defense' or 'fighting' trait of a species. If there are multiple, it ignores the one that would be most helpful. Gains an advantage on tiles they share with other species as long as members of their branch were there first, and creatures may not migrate out of their tiles if they cannot eat this species.
>>5075851The Nakatoa spread throughout the seas. Their presence prevents the larger Giants from finding food, through their disruption of the delicate energies that the Chakalaka feed off. They rip into the smaller ones as well and thrive, while continuing to reinforce the volcanic plains. >>5076691>>5076707>>5077561The Guts move north, cutting through the double-flagged shallows and then trekking through the volcanic plains, before finally reaching dry land. They attempt to eradicate the newts! And indeed, some are killed upon arrival. However, the newts camouflage too well, and soon enough, the Guts fail in their attempt to eradicate them. They feed off the mushrooms while working out how to do so.But as luck would have it, an army of Spineworms move into the plains as well, feeding off their younger brethren, and being eaten by the Guts in kind. With four species vying for dominance on the tile, the Wurmanders end up going extinct by the hand of their descendants, exactly as the Guts desired. >I need to expand the messiah to two hexes that contain other delgi, preferably one to the north and one to the south-eastDelgi is unable to post, and had to make his move over discord. The Comelgi spread up and down, onto regions where their younger brethren have saturated. They make peace with the swarms of bugs, and use their soothing pheromones to prevent conflict between the species. >>5075638And finally, the solar storms strike! Up North, they wipe out a population of the original Mush, rendering the inhabitants of that region without a food source. That settlement soon falls into anarchy. >## NEW TURNTurn 11. I'll post in 32 hours. No crisis two turns in a row, though, reminder that the next one will end the game! Actions:>Expand/MigrateChoose a tile where you are thriving and roll 1d3+1 to expand (Remember to attach an image so instructions are unmistakable).

Rolled 14 (1d100)The ever-growing, ravenous magma forms beneath the oceans feast upon their new gigantic prey. Deep within their flesh, they find the energies suffusing the giants, and incorporate them into their own bodies. All-devouring, the Ragnaroka have learned to consume all, even creatures who are able to measure up to them in size. All will burn, all will die, all will be food. With each step, the earth will quake. Despair.

>>5077780>"Fists of Fury"- This mushroom aggressively punches predators, lashing out at anything that moves too fast in its surroundings.IG: Can thrive self-sufficiently at size 3 on Land tiles. If other creatures cannot eat this species, they gain a minor disadvantage.

>>5077932>>5079127The Guts explore their surroundings, weaving a huge arc. But wherever they go, they unfortunately find themselves incapable of conquering new territory. They finally manage to take a single tile on the volcanoes, where they can hunt the shrooms and worms using their new golems. >>5078448>>5078451The swamps are completely transformed into Limuterra, and the species has become the environment itself. Up north, the floating islands drift out to sea, bearing sweet, yet noxious fruits, that threaten hapless herbivores.>>5078964>>5078969The Buns head out to sea! The new civilisation doesn't manage to thrive in their boats, but their presence disrupts the delicate balance of the giants, stopping certain ones from being able to feed reliably. Overfishing causes everyone on the tile to suffer.>>5079109>>5079109The Chakalaka spread out, reinforcing their layers with stronger combatants in preparation for the gigantic sea-beasts coming their way. Meanwhile, the Dormin keep marching, almost clearing the straight. And by the shoreline, some Clanglakas attempt to drag themselves all the way inland into the shadows, and fall to pieces as a result.>>5079192>>5079193The wurms drift into the jungles, where they feed on both the shrooms, as well as their leg-wielding brethren. The wurmanders are eaten into extinction down below, but the land-dwelling spinewurms thrive! The shallows are also saturated with various species who drift into its fringes.The Delgi expand upwards with their new Messiahs, retaking the continent! The entire thing is theirs once again, with no competition.You can't both roll to expand and migrate with your primary action, so the Dragonewts do nothing.>## NEW TURNTurn 12. 24 hours from now, I'll post.

>>5080379>"Deep-Sea Dive"- By going deep into the ocean, this species hides themselves and gains a large boost to camoflage in a single generation. However, they cannot protect what cannot find them.IG: This species gets +1 Camo on ocean tiles, but 'Shadow of the Colossus' no longer protects species unless they have more sensors than this species' camouflage.
>>5080390>"Hinged jaws"- This species eats by dislocating their jaws to swallow up prey. However, due to their jutting spines and dental issues, this can create numerous complications from their jaws failing to go back into place, or from teeth growing through their gums.IG: Able to eat creatures up to your size on land, but take a disadvantage on land as well.

>>5080515>"Laser-sight"- Using the eyes of the Giants, this species is able to scope out prey from afar.IG: Smaller species no longer get a camo bonus for being smaller than you. Minor advantage to thriving when not eating.

>>5080568As the plates beneath the seas shift, something begins pushing its way free from between them- An ancient creature, its body composed of coral, that ruled the Archipelago long before its current host of creatures. It stirs beneath the waves, and its emergence spells the end of the world- lest some species can defeat it and claim dominance over the Island Chain by themselves.
>>5079357>>5080262The Ragnaroka spread out further, killing the giants and consuming their bodies. Their smaller cousins form a pack, vacating the ocean before their descendants can massacre them. Down below, the shallows-dwelling ones peacefully take the final swamp. >>5080411>>5080415The Southern ocean witnesses the Limuterra for the first time. The species has managed to span coast-to-coast, turning the shallows into one superorganism comprised of themselves. The fruits lure the giants into eating them, and the resulting toxicity causes the species to suffer. >>5080455Due to the combined hunting of both the newly-built warships, and the kaiju that have flowed into the same tile, the sea is devoid of species. Neither are able to destroy each other, but their struggle for food has killed everything else in that region. >>5080541You can't migrate using multiple species.

>>5081733this is the end of it all
>>5081740yeah messed up should have placed one down and tied
>>5080616>>5080623The spores latch on to the backs of the slow-moving Tentor, and soon, the majority of their population is overtaken by these symbiotic organisms. To the West, the Curral continues drifting along with the currents, seeding the edges of the ocean and blooming beneath their new neighbours.>>5080623>>5080626By spreading their fruits, the population of Giants are severely damaged. They're no longer able to absorb the energies of the world and sustain themselves. Algal matter washes onto the arctic plains, clinging to the edges of the iceberg and surviving like lichen. Down south, the seas are claimed by the last of the floating islands. >>5081148>>5081536The Ragnaroka swim across the stretch of ocean, past the new metal ships of the Buns, in order to feast on the Dormin. Hard-fought battles take place, but they manage to defeat them and gain a bounty of food. A final contingent swoops into the shallows, where they eke out a niche and thrive above the Limu. >>5081564The Buns send out more of their population into the sea, on less specialised boats. These ones fare badly, however... They're soon outcompeted by the other inhabitants of the ocean, and only those who can find room aboard the Orb ships survive. >>5081733>>5081740The Crystal-Backed Giants expand outwards, snatching vast tracts of territory from the Ragnaroka. Though the larger predators are able to eat, they can't put a stop to the growth of the latest generation, as they can't prey on them in the depths. Though their lesser cousins suffer, the Chakalaka prosper in the end.>>5080571Now able to eat any land-creatures in the region, the Guts expand outwards and claim one final bit of land, before settling down at the edge of the volcanoes to await the end of days. The Delgi and Newts make no change this era. And finally, the plates split open and a massive beast breaches the surface. Its roar echoes across the land, as it instantly starts decimating the inhabitants of the land. The Archipelago is left in chaos as->ERROR! >SURFACE SCAN INTERRUPTED>RESTORING DATA...>ERROR! INSUFFICIENT POWER>REALLOCATE? Y/N>N>TERMINATING SCAN
"So, that's it, huh?">"Looks like it. Damn shame. Which ones were you rooting for?" "All of them turned out pretty damn dangerous in the end. But I'd have to say, the Tentor would have been the easiest to live with.">"Mhm. I was partial to the Newts myself." "What do you think we'll find, once we touch down?" The Navigator adjusted his glasses, looking over the display. Brilliant points of light danced about on the screen, displaying facts and figures. Highlighted on the map were several glowing chunks, obscured by intermittent error windows. He turned towards his younger companion, an unreadable expression plastered across his wrinkled face.>"Hard to say. Only Gaia world in this sector, and this just has to happen to it..." "We could still turn around. There's no telling what we'll find once we touch down. You sure we can't get anything more from the scan?" >"We can't turn around, and we can't figure things out till we enter the system. We set out for this place too long ago. There's no going back now. At least it doesn't look like we have to content with advanced civilisations."The Assistant settled into a chair. With a flick of his wrist, he pulled up several sets of archives, from the last few times that the duo had awoken from cryosleep. This one, the thirteenth and final time, was the critical point. He looked through the old notes. For them, it felt like days ago- not counting the bleary memories that passed for dreams while slumbering in a frozen pod. But for the inhabitants of the planet, it had been countless generations. Even longer, considering both the length of their travel, and the time it would take light to reach their scanners."Advanced civilisations... Right. So by the time we get there, we should expect to see the Buns and their city. No way to tell what happened to them after the scan cut out. Damn, I wish we could get one last look..." >"I know, kiddo. But we can't use any more juice. Last bit is to get the ship up and running, and wake the rest from cryo. Whatever is down there, we deal with it. Personally, I'm hoping the Guts have had good luck."
Fluorescent light shone from above, illuminating the cockpit as the duo silently watched the void of space. A tiny point of light sat in front of them, marked out by the screen. There it was. Their destination. The place that the generation ship would settle on. The Navigator continued tapping on buttons and swiping his fingers against various panels, choosing their location carefully."Delgium? Good choice. Which part of it are you thinking? Anywhere should be safe, since the Delgi aren't exactly violent, but I'm more worried about the neighbors.">"Correct. I'd say... The South-West. That spot where the Guts settled in long ago. It's close enough to the ocean, far from the giants, and the forests are nearby. That's the best spot for the colony.""I gotta say, I'm kinda excited to try Tentor meat. That spot looks like good fishing.">"Just don't get a lungful of spores. I don't want to see what the Shrum will do to a human.""Yeah... Those guys are hazardous. You didn't follow them as closely as I did, did you?">"I did not. Pray tell?""They're hyperspecialized. There's a whole bunch of different wings of the species, all meant to adapt to different parts of the volcanic regions. Who knows how many other subspecies are out there in the world, waiting to be discovered?""You sound passionate about them." "I was a botanist back home. I know they're Fungi- Or, well, fungiforms. Not like earth classifications apply to aliens. But still, that's close enough to my field of expertise." >"Just don't wander off in search of them. You know that the jungles are Firenewt territory. Those worms can swallow a man whole. Now those, I can appreciate. Beautiful creatures, though dangerous as hell. I did enjoy seeing them flourish, they had a good run." "Yeah. Though... We'll have to go there eventually. That's where the Guts vanished. Who knows what their civilisation is doing now?">"Who knows? Either way, it's definitely the centre of the Archipelago. The East is absolutely unspeakable."The Assistant's face paled. He zoomed in to the satellite imagery, looking at the orange scars that ripped across the land. "The World Scar... Yeah. The Tatakas just kept drilling and drilling. Like damn termites. Their nests go coast to coast. I wish we could have done a deep scan, seen what was way beneath the surface. The world is theirs, by now." >"Not just them. The land itself is inhospitable. Though, I shouldn't need to tell you. You're the botanist." "It was fascinating to watch. They've assimilated everything in the environment and taken on its shape, its form, and there's even whole islands. I'd love to touch down, but we don't have enough EVA suits to go traipsing halfway across the world. Shame that I can't get a Limubud sample."
>"I reckon we'll be safe from them... Unless they've spread out in the time since the last scan. The Chakalaka, at least, won't be coming around to our colony within our lifetime. They're busy up North, with the Kraken, with the Ragnaroka, and with the buns." "That was terrifying to see. I thought they were peaceful. But seeing them suddenly attack the city... Didn't expect that in the slightest. Buns almost got wiped out just from that one population and their eye beams." >"Good thing they hung in there. And at the very least, they're contained up North. Maybe we can make contact in our own time, but for now, we haven't been eclipsed by their society. The Giants have wrapped halfway across the Archipelago, but as long as we don't crowd them out, they shouldn't attack us." A loud beep caught the attention of the two. It was time. Soon, the cryopods would start opening, and the ship would have to be in running condition again, with a whole crew, before it could start seeding the planet with life. The Navigator and Assistant looked at each other. The old man spoke first, his wrinkled skin creasing in a frown. >"I suppose this is it. We won't be seeing as much of each other anymore. Go on, kid. Back to your family."He nodded in response, extending a hand to shake. The light shone against his olive skin, the Spacer's tan evident after their constant exposure to the lights."Me too. I've enjoyed our time together, old-timer. It was... Quite the journey. Watching these species grow up, getting to know you... I guess it's the end of an adventure.">"And the start of a new one. We're all going to live on, down there. It's a new life. Nothing to be sad about." Despite himself, he felt a spot of moisture beading up in his one good eye. The Navigator turned away, setting his other hand on the console to finish up the final checks.>"Stay safe out there." "You too." They shook hands, and the Assistant span on his heel to exit the cockpit. Without another word, he left for the Cryo chambers, to see the first few crewmates out of their pods. The Old Navigator tapped on one more button, filling the room with soft notes- Notes that spelt the ending of one journey, and the beginning of another.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrhAuEeyCaoThe ship drove on though the void of space.
Thank you for playing! The final score tally is as such:Tatakas: 19Chakalaka: 18Guts: 15Limubud: 9Delgi: 8Firenewt: 7Shrum: 5Bun: 5Tentor: 2Slerk: 2Leaving the Tatakas as the winner, and the rulers of the world! And now, before the thread ends, the Tatakas get the right to continue their story. They get to decide the fate of the world, what happens to their species, as well as the others, and what awaits the colonists when they finally touch down in the Archipelago.
A log recovered from the blackbox of the Canterbury."Captain's Log. Day 1. We're attempting our excursion into the east side of the planet. The Ensign said he saw a small house as we began traveling towards the World Scar, hidden among the trees and grass of the Sporophyll Forest. Newt and Shrum populations seem relatively stable, above average for this time of year. Despite our theories on the Tatako during our journey, we've seen none since we arrived. Hell, the Buns and Delgi seem remarkably untouched for how close they were to them.">"Boatswain's Log, Day 3. We've been over the World Scar for days now. Cap'n's been telling us there's nothing out there but I swear I've... seen something down there, in the cracks of the earth."An attached video zooms in on the sweltering crags and molten floes beneath, and the slightest of moving forms, no larger than a wolf."Captain's Log, Day 5. Due to unforeseen ash storms messing with our flight systems, we needed to travel into the region known as Behemoth's Vestibule. Undersea probes shows us that there's no sign of any life, Ragnaroka or Giants. Where'd they go? A few Bun fishing vessels waved at our vessel, but never interacted.>"Boatswain's Log, Day 5. We've all heard the stories of what happens to folks who try to make it to the other side. They never make it, and if they do ramble on about... Seas of Purple and Pink muck stretched as far as the eye could see. Madmen.""Captain's Log, Day 11. After a refueling attempt on the east coast] of Delgium, we're ready to make another incursion across the World Scar. Wish us luck.">"Boatswain's Log, Day 12. It's real. It's all real. Never-ending shades of violet and purple, coating the Ocean like thick mud. Captain's ready to set us down.""Captain's Log, Day 12. We've entered a series of tunnels bored into the earth beneath our ship. Preliminary signs show no life signs, but I swear I hear... breathing. As loud as a tidal wave.">"Boatswain's Log, Day 12. We couldn't get everyone back. Whatever was down there, we woke up. It.. looked like a demon made of lava and bone. Once it started moving, everything else did. They're everywhere, I can see them below us. So many. So many.""Captain's Final Log, Day 13. This is the crew of the Canterbury. Dont come for us, please, whatever you pray to dont come. They arent gone, they were waiting. Sleeping. We're sorry, we.. didn't know what we were doing. We've decided we're going to set her down one last time, stop them from getting to the rest of the colony."The Alien Vessel that recovered and translated this blackbox noted that despite the actions of the Canterbury, large parts of the planet including the East Cost of "Delgium" and a region once identified as the site of a colony have become blackened with fire and magma. No signs of any of the beasts described in the log have been found, but the team prepares to land on the surface.
>>5082529And that's the end of our story. If you have any additional pictures or evos that you were planning to do, feel free to post them in the thread and share them. Would love to see some other prototypes for creatures.
just a doddle i did now after the end that i used parts of other stuff a idea for the bottom section was too make a fast version that rolls around
was thinking too make like a speedy version for obus delgi that they could use but it did not get further then this
this is the evo if i picked size +1 and size in ocean the timeline where i won i got alot of help and drawing done by my pal nongent
>>5082558I already posted them in the discord but here is how the shrums would have evolved
