>>19738694

A splinter species of the Drill Yazdas emerges.

The Stake Yazda is completely predatory creature.
It has the ability to pneumatically launch a hollow, extremely hard spike from it's proboscis, which it then uses to deliver it's deadly flesh melting toxins inside it's victim.
The spike is launched by the pneumatic force generated by a specialized organ the Yazda houses in it's head. This stake has enough force behind it to break trough even the shells of juvenile chompas and runnas, which are both stable parts of the Yazda diet.
After successfully poisoned it's victim, it waits for the host's innards to liquidize, and then it drinks them up.

These Yazdas are far larger than other Yazda breeds. They are about the size of a crow.
This is because of their increased need for strength as they struggle to overpower their victims.
They can quite easily grab and hold down a juvenile runna just long enough to allow the Yazda to deliver it's deadly sting.

High up in the mountains, an especially durable offshoot of the Stumpy Hexis takes root. They are adapted to grow slowly in the in the dry, rocky soil, and CO2 poor air, taking over a century to reach maturity. Upon reaching maturity, the Hexis produces a slow, but steady supply of spores.
As they often live for several millennia, a lot can happen to these large shrubs. The occasional landslide, fire, or even herbivore can cause a lot of damage to the plant. The shrubs are excellent at storing energy for these events. While young and/or undisturbed, they have the typical helical form of the Hexis family. The older, battered plants appear more like a tangle of split, snapped, and possibly even scorched branches that recovered from the centuries of abuse they undergo. They store enough energy to spend the next few decades regrowing their branches if they are by chance all lost.
Even though they grow slightly faster in lower altitudes, they aren't commonly found there. The more frequent presence of fauna keeps them from truly taking hold.

This is the Methuselah Hexis.

(A few of us put a lot of thought into this thing. Solomon, add anything that I may have forgotten).

It was only a matter of time until many animals learned to instinctively avoid the carnivorous Whipping Hexis. Having trouble attracting prey, there was little choice but to actively to out on the hunt.
Some of them become roaming predators, hunting down prey with a weak sense of smell and tremor sense. Roots atrophy, and another trunk is grown.
The Hexis Shambler is now its name.

Gesh start living in one spot as opposed to randomly wandering, the longer they live in that region, the more intense the "dream cloud" becomes. Eventually the life in the region will start to adapt to the "gesh rot" a combination of mildew, mold, fungus, and moss that clings to things, in a rather harmless symbiosis. The only downside to this all is that its intensely hallucinogenic. Most creatures will seek to avoid the "Dream" forests, though eventually some will adapt.

A new schwar species adapted to the lub forests emerges.

The Lub climber Schwar is an ambush predator that hunts Yazdas and Puruus.
It has longer body, and legs, which have gecko like paws in them. These adaptations allow the Schwar to swiftly climb from balloon to balloon, in their search for a suitable ambush spot. They can also give chase to puruus if the first attack is a failure.
The schwar can metabolize the most potent of Puruu toxins, but they are still somewhat vulnerable to them.
Because of this, they tend to only attack either young or very old puruus, as an adult puruu is a dangerous foe for the schwar.

And adult puruu is about the size of a small house cat, and the schwar is about the size of a small snake. Full combat between an adult puruu and a full grown schwar can result in the deaths of them both.

Inevitably some individual Dream Eaters succumb to the Gesh Rot but, while the docile herbivore Dreamers are content in their stupor, The carnivorous Dream Eaters tend to go on a very bad trip. The Infected Dream Eaters become violent and erratic. Nothing is safe from their outbursts. When not falling into random narcoleptic sleep they attempt to kill and eat anything that disturbs them even rocks or trees. Their rot also releases dream spores but those close enough to be effected by them only have a brief moment of hallucinogenic heightened terror before being mauled. The beasts are living Nightmares.

Because they are not all there The Gesh Nightmares wander alone far from their packs and natural habitats. A Gesh Nightmare is an uncommon sight but they could pop up anywhere on the Continent.

They don't typically stay in one place long enough for the rot to spread from them.

A new yazda species emerges.

The melter yeazda is specialized in eating the algae that grown in the skin of the balloon lubs.
They use their powerful digestive acids to melt the skin of the lub, and then slurp up the algae/skin soup.
Their population is kept in check by the schwars and the puruus, so they won't overwhelm the balloon forest.

The lubs have also changed over the eons. Their skin is actually quite resilient, and very quick to regrow so the yazda's predation doesn't affect them that much. They also have developed thick mucus between their skin layers, that seals up any wounds very quickly, thus preventing the gas they contain from escaping. Their gas chamber has also developed internal walls, and in essence, making giving the lub multiple internal chambers. This helps them survive against piercing damage caused by creatures and the environment.

Hurrr.....

Anyways, I might as well use this post for another development as well.
The Balloon lubs have started using their mini tentacles to swat yazdas and other creatures away from themselves.
Thus far, it only really works for yazdas that land too near to their tentacles, as the other creatures are too big to be really bothered by the sticky tentacles trying to smack them.
Occasionally, an unlucky yazda or a young puruu gets entangled in these tentacles, and slowly digested by them.

Along the fault lines of the continent the fissures ruble greatly. Super heated gas pockets explode, forming geysers. The southern mountain chain weeps lava from a thousand different cracks. The gas seeps up into the atmosphere, hits the clouds, and comes back down as chemical rain. Its highly mutagenic in nature. Finally...we have new comers, creeping out of the cracks, those few able to stand the bright light of the sun, explore a bold new world of no boundaries.

1-mobile cedya -slow moving mobile fungi, semi aware, launches spores for makeshift cannon. does not like direct sunlight.
2-floating ragas- balloon like floating, multi chambered fruiting plan. seed distribution. grows quite large if given enough space.
3-bouncing angry wirm- angry. bounces. carniverous. worked its way up from the lower levels to wreck havoc. only problem is that its tiny.
4-bouncing wirm- joyous, fungi/ plant eater, also tiny.
-------------------
the gas changes creatures it hits in strange and wondrous ways. these are ment to be the begining of your path into a new era, not the end of the road and a massive leap.

1- take a step towards intelligence, and perfection of mind.
2- take a step towards a body that can thrive in a tribal era.
3-amplifiy an existing sense. better sight, better hearing, better feeling, smell,
4-develop an opposable digit. tool use.
5- develop the beginnings of language, beginnings of community.
6- develop enhanced strength and armor, become a natural weapon.

Some of the balloon lubs never developed the ballast that "anchored" their cousins to water. These free floating lubs continued to develop on their own.

The Flier lub is a result of generations of adaptation to free floating. Their red "leafs" have turned into wing like appendages that allow the lub to direct it's movements in the air to some degree.
They have also developed sensory organs that allow them to both feel wind currents and thermals better, and also detect traces of plant spores and such things, which form the main food source of the lubs. They don't need to eat much, as they are quite small, and they get the majority of their energy from the photosynthesis of the algae in their skin.
They eat only to get the nutrients they can't absorb from air.
Their blueish tentacles collect pollen and spores from the air, which the lub then absorbs to itself.
Their tail has developed a specialized ending that helps the lubs to absorb water from air. The countless thin hairs of their tail condense and absorb water for the lub.

These flier lubs are most common in the humid northern areas, though they can occasionally be spotted in the more arid south.
They reproduce by budding off smaller versions of themselves.

A new species of rainbow horns emerges.

They live in the lacorra fields, and eat everything in there, the hamuns, tubefaces and the lacorras themselves.
This is because the electric attacks of the lacorras are mostly ineffective against the thick shell and hide of the rainbow horns. They also channel the electric charges the lacorras use to attack to their horn, from which is bounces harmlessly away from the rainbow horn.

The rainbow horns are solitary and mostly feed on tubenoses and hamuns, though they can eat and kill lacorras. Perhaps they just prefer the other easier prey, over the lacorras, which undoubtedly will try to shock the rainbow horn when it tries to eat them.

Predation is, in fact, what drove these beings to the trees in the first place. Lots of foliage to eat up there, but away from the land-bound Crunchas and Chompas that would feast on it. Their legs lengthen, and they use the nub on the back of their ankles to straddle the trees, leading their toes to curve and atrophy. No need for flat feet when one never touches the ground.

The strider is also smaller than it once was, as larger individuals don't do well in this new home, falling off to their death on the forest floor. These arboreal "Tree Striders" are about the size of a baboon.

The Mobile Cedya thrive in the surface nights but these cantaloupe sized walking mushrooms find it hard to hunt creatures solo so they have begun living in packs taking down the larger surface creature cooperatively. They often grow in packs from the same carcass and remain together as family clusters. During the days they hide beneath rocks, in crevices and hollow trees.

The shamblrs change once again. With many creatures that would still like to eat them they have grown to be able to feed faster. There stomach hole is now also open at the bottom, they are now able to sit on top of dead bodies and feed using there small roots.

Something I have started to notice on this continent is that environments and biomes have seemed to go without that much development.
The plains, for example, have loads of creatures, but their plant life hasn't been developed almost at all.
One of the key things in creating interesting world is to create diverse and equally interesting environments.
Plants have a heavy impact on the nature of the environments they live in, and thus I urge that people would start giving some love to the plants and plant like creatures such as Lacorras, Hamuns and Lubs.

Making new species will also be easier, if we have many distinct and unique environments for them to adapt to.
The mountainous areas have received very little love, and so are the coastal areas.
Diversifying the environments results in more variety, and thus more interesting environments.

Our current biomes and sub-biomes* seem to be these:
>Plains.
>Mountains.
>Coastal areas.
>Northern forests and jungles.
>Balloon forests.*
>Lacorra reefs.*

The sub biomes exists in conjunction to greater biomes, so the areas in which the two biomes interact should be full of diverse life, adapted to both environments.
Feel free to ad plants and food chain enabling creatures to these environments. Remember, this is not a race for reaching tribal, this is not a competition. Our goal here is to create an interesting world.

If I remember correctly, not much bigger than a cat.

Internal change coming.
Due to the squishiness of the balloon forest, parts of the brain which deal with balance and coordination grow larger in the Puruus which live there, along with some nerve clusters spread elsewhere throughout the body. Like how nerves in the spine work for creatures on earth, these clusters get signals faster than the brain can from the body, and deal with quick reactions such as recoiling from pain.

Taking advantage of the ability to move locked in it's genetic code, a new tree arrives on the plains, the coiling hexis. During the midday sun, or when it's leaves are damaged, the coiling hexis tightens, pulling it's trunks together in a knot. During the cooler hours, it spreads out, to get the maximum surface area to photosynthesize.

Finding food is difficult for the Shamblers as they cant kill any prey they just shamble around until they find a carcass, and to protect it's food the Shamblers have developed a way to ward of other preadtors.
The Shambler now wraps its self around its food and is now able to move the limbs of the body its on, right now its only able to fling it's ''limbs'' around and is incapable of actions like walking or even standing. This usually scares anything that comes to close.

Their bodies begin to reform toxins throughout their bodies. Over time, these few have had to become more predatory, as the toxins have been killing their symbiotic algae. They float at the mercy of the winds until their tentacles wrap around something, which then they use their tentacles to try to digest what they find. Freefloater Lub.
