[ERROR] No.17123729 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Alright, /tg/, let's have some fun. I would like to play a game. Here we will build a setting from the ground up. I will pretty much be the DM introducing new monsters, disasters, and events to you all. Also ruling on any argument. Your job as the player is to take the pictures of the creatures in the next 3 posts (including this one) and have them evolve due to their environment.

The way you go about this is by opening MS paint and altering one of the pictures (please save and a .png). This is completely free form, but try not to get too crazy with it. Try to only add one feature at a time. You must then decide whether the new creature's predecessor is extinct or if the new creature is simply a branch in evolution.

For example, The pic related is an Allos. If I added eyes I could claim that the old allos is extinct and the one with eyes lives on. Or I could claim that both exist.

Pic related is one of your creatures, an allos. It is a mollusk and has a single flagellum to move itself around and 2 tendrils for manipulating. It is slow and small. It also emits bio-luminescence. The next post will include another creature and the local habitat.

>> No.17123758

Next we have the billu. A small mammal with no eye-sight. It does have large ears and a powerful nose. It is not very fast or slow, but can burrow.

The environment in question is a large cave, one that the creatures here have never seen the end or beginning. There is a vast pool of clean water which seems bottomless. There are also many small puddles.

The air is humid and there are rarely any breezes. There is no sunlight and thus no plants. Lichens and a variety of fungi make up the other life-forms. As well as motionless creatures like anemones lining the sides of the vast pool.

The soil provided is not very fertile but not barren.

One more post and we can play.

>> No.17123780

The Cryd are up next. Arthropods who feel more at home in the water. They can move across land but have no need to. They are fast in the water and slow on land. They have antennae so they can feel their surroundings. They also have cumbersome claws.

I think that's all the information you all need. Feel free to shoot me some questions if you are unsure on anything. The diet and actions of the creatures is up to you all. I will be back in a bit to issue an event.

>> No.17123849

Maybe the Billu divide into aquatic and land-dwelling versions?

>> No.17123856

They've lost their weighty claws for weighty spoon/spade things, allowing them to pry motionless creatures like anemones from the sides of the pool so they can be eaten.

>The Cave quakes and trembles. Fissures begin to form in the cave walls and floor. These fissures also branch out in the vast pool making small lakes and tributaries and connect what were small puddles. Stalactites which seemed immortal and ageless crack and fall into the pool causing huge waves which rush onto the dryer parts of the cave.

>Some of the columns sunk into the abyss but a few remained on shore. Within them is a strange spongy material. Deep red in color and to the adventurous very nutritious. Compared to the creatures of the cave these fallen stalactites are titanic, so the food within them is plentiful.

>> No.17123918

This is a recently developed type of Billu with enlarged paws. It has a distinct advantage over the old billus when it comes to burrowing and discovering new sources of food.

The old Billu is not extinct as of yet, but spreading their Billu sperm becomes fewer each passing year.

I'll allow it. But it can only happen if they ingest the red spongy material.

Also, roll a D100. If the roll is below 50 only a select few can do it. If above 50 all can do it, but they almost always hurt themselves.

As the stalactites fell into the Abyss several of the Allos clung to it with its tendrils. As the sink further down the newer generations of Allos have developed hook-like things at the end of their tendrils to cling better.

>> No.17124086

I expressed that poorly. Some of the Allos clung to stalactites that fell into the Abyss. They're now falling quickly down through the water so they've evolved hooks at the ends of their tendrils to hold on easier. The previous Allos are still alive.

Allos now has to fang-like things (although still no mouth) that further its clinginess. All previous Hook-Allos die.
Also, the Cryd can easily use their spades to dig up red spongey stuff so they've began to hoard/protect their own collections of it, the male with the biggest lump of red spongey stuff attracts the most females (they also try and hi-jack/steal piles).

> All previous X die

What, no separate species? No genetic deviation? This doesn't seem like a very good setting.

>> No.17124153


Very cool. As they fall the pool narrows. The stalactite gets stuck and stops falling. The hook-allos cannot swim downward any more as there is an upwards current. They can remain on the fallen column if they please. They also feel the presence of other creatures below, but they cannot see them.

>> No.17124163


what, it's up to the players (you) re-read the OP;

>You must then decide whether the new creature's predecessor is extinct or if the new creature is simply a branch in evolution.

It's up to the person who creates the new picture. You want the improved version only? Okay, you want the old one too, cool. Either is acceptable.

>> No.17124179

I get the feeling the Allos should streamline its body so it can get through the current easier. Thin out the fin, maybe? Bring the hook-tendrils a little closer?

The roots are thick and have spread to the pool, where they have begun to drink. It does not drain a lot of the water, but with time it might.

>In the mean-time small green leaves have sprouted from the root. If left un-touched they grow longer and leave behind more wood. They seem to grow in any direction looking for sunlight, but there is none.

As they plunge deeper they find a small jelly-like creature. It seems neutral to the allos. This is the "symet" it is a detrivore (feeds off fallen waste). They have grown since the introduction of the columns. They are larger than the other 3 creatures. They are now a player species.

The allos have also found small crystals. They can mine them, but there seems to be no practical use for them, they aren't edible. They are very hard, however.

The leaves give the new cryd a well-fed advantage. They grow in size, but begin to swim slower. As they harvest the new leaves they notice a sticky sap lying within the root. The unlucky can get stuck to the root and die of starvation.

The root, not growing at a rapid pace thanks to the new cryd begins drinking a lot more water. The main pool begins to dry-up, leaving behind only the abyss. Along the shore anemones die from lack-of water, but few elongated their tentacles to dip deep down into the abyss.

For now the main root flourishes with so many branches and leaves it creates a small jungle of tangled roots.

The cave, which was once abundantly humid, feels a bit dryer, oxygen levels have increased thanks to the leaves, and soil in fertile thanks to the introduction of so many food sources.

>> No.17125067

From deep in the abyss a gargantuan creature emerges, it hardly seems possible for such a creature to exist. It crawls up the anemone's tentacles for the main cave. It looks like a huge salamander, but its head is plastered in eyes (13 in all). Each of a different color. It has 2 main limbs each appear to be 2 arms fused together. The rest of its body is a huge muscular tail which whips furiously. It seems lost in this cave, but hungry. I starts chomping at the root, but when it finds creatures within it's mini-forest (the cryd) it's attention sways towards the animals in the cave.

You must kill it! It will destroy your home! Roll a D100 for each species. (one roll per poster) Allos get a +10 for their electricity, billu get a +5 for their horns. I'm looking for a roll of 80+ and you only get one roll per species.

As a last resort, 2 species can combine rolls. Those 2 must split their earnings, (6 eyes on each side, one lost forever) and they must combine their cultures and become symbiotic, or atleast as a subrace.

You got it! Still 80+, and you won without bonuses. With such an unlikely combo too.

The creature falls to the ground, over time its flesh peels off the bones and rots away. It fills the cave with a putrid miasma, but it doesn't do anymore harm than the creature did alive. It's eyes all seem to be protected from the effects of time, and hold their form. As you are the victors, you can split these prizes.

Present 6 of your species, and feed each one an eye. Their bodies will twist and those who breed with them will also receive their gifts. As is the nature of these things, not all mutants will want to be mated with, so you may only choose 4 of the granted gifts.

Roll 12D100. The first 6 will go to the symet, the last 6 go to the Cryd. Of each species, you can only select 4 of them. These can be subspecies or replace the species, it's up to you, get rollan. You can also place all the 'gifts' on one single species, if you wish.

No creature knows where the Lost salamandrine eye came from, but it seems to be the root of the old beast's power. Though many have gained it's gifts, the lost eye still holds more.

The ground shifts and a spire rises made from the natural rock. It is an arena with a habitat for each of the caves creatures, giving all equal advantage. The eye beckons every creature without voice or touch to select a member of their tribe. It will be a fight to the death. The winner gains a power of the eye at the choice of the victor. You can either gain great knowledge, sentience, the ability to achieve greater communication potentially enslaving all other creatures. Or, you can summon another horrible creature. This creature will not attack the race that summons it, but it will be immortal (not indestructible). Very powerful and can be used by any member of the race, but it will demand sacrifice.

The choice is yours, mortals. Roll a D100 for each race (only the main 4, no subs this time). The one with the highest roll gains the eye's power. The goal is simply beat the other races. Because all are on equal footing, there will be not bonuses.

Look at you mortals, granted one of the best gifts I have to offer, and for what? Eating filth in the abyss?

So many arms, and yet, no motivation to use the wood, rocks, or crystals around you. The root grows longer, and the abyss, though deep, is not endless.

If you cut it, you will regain your homeland. If you do nothing, the cave will dry. They cryd reside there, but they seem adaptable.

Arms are more meaningful, IMO. Tech can make better forges, freezers and chemical vats anyway.

The evolutionary equivalent of transcendance is to get the critical mass of intelligence needed for a cultural/technological explosion. This means we need to be good at manipulating things, and we need to be social.

We didn't need to spit acid to dominate this planet, and now we've got better weapons than anything on the planet has naturally.

As the abyss drains, all remaining aquatic symets and the allos lie in a shallow pool isolated from the rest. Even severing the root now wouldn't save you. No, now your goal is to keep the root alive, if it drinks the last bit of the pool you will not only be without water, but also missing vital materials and oxygen the root provides.

I gift you all the mauler. A huge insectoid creature and an expert at burrowing. When you find a new water source, he will connect it to the great pool, finally giving it life again.

Well, if we're mainly worried about oxygen, surely the roots aren't the only autotrophs around. But then again, we don't have light, so it's not like there's plankton or algae.

How do we have this much life without light? I guess the root does make sense...
Doesn't the water in this case have a source? It should be able to sustain some level of life indefinitely, even if the root is going to cause a minor population collapse in the short term.

I'm coming around to your previous position a little: Keep the root at a sustainable level or it will dry out the cave and kill us all. It would be better to go somewhere that the root won't naturally destroy the ecosystem.

This this supposed to be more PvP or PvE?

Hmmmm... This is a tough call. You did beat the billu's roll. But at the same time I was only expecting one roll per species. I am assuming the 100 was for the symets? Give me a second to think this over.

Either way, You find a great rushing stream filled with crystal clear water. The stream is massive, an ocean compared to your size. I will send the mauler over to create a channel. Even the great root couldn't drink up all this water.

I am considering your prize. It is also questionable how the symet even travel on land without the help of the cryd (who failed the roll)

It may seem unfair, but in my mind, there is only one way to settle this. A duel! I unleash the Myrit! An intelligent Large bird who was trapped in the caverns. In recent generations it has began to lose its pygment due to the lack of sunlight. Its wings are vestigial and mostly walks everywhere, but would make for a find mount, perhaps even a beast of burden. There are many located near the newly found stream.

Their curiosity is sparked and they have investigated where these strange new, delicious looking creatures, have come from. As they enter the main cavern they immediately recognize the 2 different species that discovered them. And they attack.

Symet and Billu need only roll (D100). Who ever is higher has tamed the myrit and may do with it, what they wish. Who ever fails is now below it on the food chain.

>> No.17136626

The Cryd on the plateau are making artificial ponds where they start relocating their Symet masters.

With increased access to sunlight, the Symet have started producing an excess of nutrients from their photosynthesis, they exhume the extra nutrients as sugary goo. This help bolster the food supplies of the Cryd.


(also, for the assburger in me, are the Symet sapient or sentient?)

>> No.17136668


>(also, for the assburger in me, are the Symet sapient or sentient?)

Yes, this was granted to them about halfway through the thread. And I'm assuming the photosynthesis comes from the cryd's 'glow'.

Also, for those that have been keeping track, who here knows what subspecies are alive?

>> No.17136843


As far as subspecies go, this is what I have.

Allos-Just the one, I think.

Billu - 4-armed bipeds, small little air-sac ones.

Cryd - polymorphic but all one species. Queen, workers, 'guard' class.

Symet- 4 different mutants, one Large, one 2-headed, one with extra tentacles, one with longer tentacles. And they live in symbiosis with the cryd.
