In a world covered in endless water...

Animal eared people reign supreme.

After a large ball of table salt hit both polar ice caps at the same time, the world was flooded with chlorinated water. The resulting swimming pool level of chlorine led nearly all life to become extinct.

Save for rock monsters, animal eared people, and some tenacious sea sponges, insects, and birds.

This is the world of Catastrophy.

Am I missing something from the last 404'd thread?

Some "normal" sea life survived thanks to a few surviving human scientists genetically modifying them to be more tolerant to the new water, like the giant crab in the pic.
This may also be the origin of the animal folks maybe.

Yes, but only so much salt can occupy so much water. The rest supersaturates and becomes brine, which creates underwater lakes.

Or if you want to be really, really creative, the oceans can become supersaturated to a degree that it solidifies.

...Cl. Chlorine is an element. Naturally occuring, it exists as a gas, Cl(2).

Table salt is NaCl, which, when dissolved in water, dissociates into two ions, Na+ and Cl-.

The abundance of Cl- is what makes bleach (which is water and chlorine) toxic.

Also, another detail that was left out: the salt meteor hit the ice caps, hence the flooding.

Maybe it's a seasonal thing? Other parts of the world could still produce oxygen, but when it's autumn-winter there the global oxygen level goes down.
This would also mean lowered activity during those months, so they'd have to stock up on food. This could be one of the more serious plot points: Fighting insect people getting to the crops and stores.

Cats go blind if they don't get taurine. They can't produce it themselves. It's not present in tuna and other fish. That's why you can't just feed them fish.

You can get it fine from other meat, though.

Taurine also exists in poultry and fish. Also, it's not so much that they need it to survive, as lacking it damages their vision, and prolonged deficiency causes blindness. Energy drinks are just especially popular with cats because it's both rich in a nutrient they'd naturally have a taste for; I imagine all the different creatures might like it, though.

It's far in the future and humanity has become masters of their realm. Gene-spliced catgirls and catboys form a "pet" caste under their human masters. Self sustaining buildings procure the ultimate in comfort and relaxation, whilst the food crisis has been solved by "ultravendors", vending-style machines with their own never-ending power supply that can synthesise food items from mere passing neutrinos.
But in the age of unparallelled science, disaster strikes! A meteorite, formed from colossal chlorine waste containers dumped into the asteroid belt, hit the Earth dead on the north pole. The subsequent water level rise was accelerated by the antarctic ice melting from the global temperature rises following the cataclysm. The planet, now covered in a warm, chlorinated ocean, was almost devoid of life, if it weren't for man's playthings. Though mankind was wiped out, his pet castes survived the event, and now frolic in the flooded ruins of Earth, sustained by Ultravendors and driven by the lust for adventure.

EXCUSE ME. Dolphins are notorious for being violent criminals and repeat offenders, whose sole purpose in life is to direct media attention away from their atrocities and towards innocent, kind-hearted sharks.

Dolphin crime has been on the rise for the past five years and continues to grow in the major cities. Studies have shown that 36% of dolphin males of age 25 or younger have already been incarcerated for a felony conviction. Dolphin families moving in devalue the property and increase neighborhood crime rates by up to 350%

Your claims of dolphins being non-violent have been through disproven by the National Shark Association, which can cite an increase in physical assaults and rapes by so-called 'murder pods' which operate from 'rape caves'.

I suggest you get EDUCATED on the dangers of dolphins today, before one of those fin-flippered freaks gets a hold of your dolphin-sympathetic ass and teaches you not to ever trust a cetacean again.

While having certain amount of danger is okay, we don't need to make it overly lethal.

So, rock monsters generally don't give much of a fuck about squishies swimming around and start protesting only when they get on their nerves.

In a case of emergency (gear being damaged by monster) each diver has a flotation device which detects damage and activates, forcefully pulling its wearer from depths.

Old buildings are a lot more dangerous - and that's why divers act in groups - in the event of crumbling there should be someone to help.

>> No.21207036

I meant more that the very real and present danger of mutilation by unfeeling golems and monstrous, uh monsters, went against the lightheartedness. But if we're doing that... I think a dependence to things that said salamanders or whatever dozen monsters exists could work. Like their eggs, while unfertilized, contain some chemical that is needed to treat something or to breed the water-proofing (or salt-filtering) coral/whatever needed to safeguard buildings from collapse (or just to get fresh water).
A fire could happen, and important materials would go lost. Maybe their silkworm farms go up in flames, or just die from disease, and they only live naturally in the deep ruins. New ones are needed but monsters live everywhere.

I'm not sure about the whole drone thing, but harvesting them for materials is definitely a good idea.

Take a page from Saturn's Children, maybe? (Well, more than we already have.) The kemonomimi are around not because they were specifically genetically engineered to live through the apocalypse, but because they're basically androids, designed to withstand a whole range of things better than humans.

(Probably the apocalypse had nothing to do with chlorination or salt, unless we have to work with that as Unquestionable Canon: it would have killed everything, even plants -- not just humans. My money's on an ethnicity-targeted bioplague that mutated away the ethnicity-targeted part.)

That is an absolutely monstrous thing to ask. Do sharks have a good side?

Of course! Sharks are kind-hearted, hard-working and very fair creatures. They may be predators, but humans are predators as well. Sharks need to eat to stay alive, but they simply do it as a job. Dolphins play and torture their prey before consuming it - sharks do not mess around.

Sharks are noble, dependable, reliable, and rarely ever go back on their word. Dolphins, on the other hand, are sneaky, conniving, and inherently malicious, a side effect of their malign intelligence. I doubt a shark could even really grasp the concept of betrayal (except the females, those tend to be smarter).

All in all, I would rather stand in solidarity with a dozen sharks than a hundred dolphins, knowing that each and every shark values me as a brother, while each and every dolphin considers me a potential threat and a potential victim.

I can see the dolphin-controlled media has bombarded you with primitive notions that dolphins are the pinnacle of civilization in a seaborne world, but sadly, such is not the case. Dolphins are humans without morality, they are cunning taking to an animal extreme, and they must be feared.

Maybe there could be "chlorine storms" or something where clouds of chlorine gas pass over areas and the inhabitants have gasmasks handy in case of these things.
But to keep the lightheartedness, make it so they tend to happen far out to sea (which would be super-far-out to sea given that the sea is even bigger now), so cases of the "storms" hitting populated areas is incredibly rare.
Could have entire plot hooks about having to take a boat out to a chlorine-heavy area to dive for some lost ship.

Sharks are indicative of healthy tropical coral ecosystems.

The small fish and other small sea-life that help manage and grow coral reefs are preyed upon by medium-sized sea life. When the medium-sized sea life is too great in abundance it actually damages the balance of the ecosystem because they eat all the small "maintenance" species. Sharks keep these medium species in low concentrations, which allows the small-life to flourish and therefore the coral reef to flourish. Most of the time the sharks are starving, but that's considered a good thing.

I can agree on this, although... Somehow it feels like we should come up with a different set of "standard" variants, at least while developing it. Cats and dogs may not have very different requirements for thriving, so solving a problem for one solves it for the other.

SO, what we have, is there is NO dependence on food that would come from the ocean, because there IS no food in the ocean. This leaves hunting on land, raising domesticated animals, and agriculture. Domesticated animals... nah, that'd involve using more of the agricultural yield than the meat animals would return. On the other hand, cats need meat. Keep domestication to a minimum, focus on agriculture and hunting? And by agriculture I mean stuff like growing vegetables in pots and jars, hanging from windows and such. Well, perhaps base food like potatoes.
OR, if we have water purification and if sweet water lakes still exist, which I assume they do, they could have fish farms in unflooded bathhouses and pools.

Well, we have the tech to purify water.

Grass, bugs, and birds exist. All of those have some nutritional value. Sure, grubs don't sound too tasty, but cubs gotta grow.

There's probably plenty of bird hunting going on, and divers probably bring back canned pet foods and such (along with energy drinks).

There's also grabbing canned food out of ruins. Though it's not sustainable long-term, I think that a period when a lot of the food being eaten is getting scavenged would be a fun period to play the setting in. Fish farms have the same issue as domesticated animals with the investment return. So yeah, hunting, gathering, and scavenging, with a bit of agriculture.

I'm still of the opinion that having water based creatures kind of detracts from the idea that the water is uninhabitable.

Some things survived, its just not the ocean teeming with life that we once knew.

Maybe to replace algae as the bottom of the food chain, we have photosynthetic fish that are easy to raise, but not all that big or tasty. They travel in schools and are eaten up by the bigger fish like the ones near the burger stand. Just a thought.

>I don't know about the consumption thing. All of them are almost human anyway, how different could their dietary needs be?
I didnt mean it would be something drastic, just a little variability to make the game more fun and maybe to make food a resource you have to keep a track of.
For example

A catgirl will be fine with just a small fish, but don't expect her to do too much in combat. Shes great for exploring and average at lifting things, though.

A bunnygirl would only need a carrot or two every now and then and would be bouncing off the walls, but one hit and shes out like a light. Her small frame would mean that she wont be lifting much either. Good for scouting due to their speediness, but they lack the natural curiosity of cats that's make the catgirls s good at finding treasure.

A doggirl, on the other hand, is pretty much all about combat. Heavy hitting and more energetic than the catgirl makes her the tank of the party. Her dense frame also means she will be hauling most of the loot. Of course, that means shes gonna be eating an entire tankcrab per night, because lemme tell you, dogs can fucking eat. They also are the least curious of the bunch, usually leaving the treasure hunting to the cats and bunnies.

At first, but those places would be the first to be emptied due to easy access.

The images are just for ideas, of course, but yeah, it would probably be more fun to say that some vague magic shit happened and now everything is flooded and perfectly preserved in a land inhabited by kemonomimi, but it doesn't take any work to say that. There's a certain charm in taking an idea and figuring out how to tweak it so that it can be fleshed out with at least a rather far-fetched sci-fi explanation. That said, when you're actually playing a game in a setting, it's easy to GM fiat something back into "It works this way and I don't gotta explain shit" mode if need be.

“So this is it, huh? I don’t see any treasure.” Shansha took off her scuba mask and began scratching aggresively at her ears and wringing out her tail to the best of her ability. Those rubber straps always irritated her ears and the water did her no favors either.

“S’what the wanderer said. Said he didn’t have the gear to go down himself, but he could somethin’ shinin’ down underwater.” Marko stretched, also removing his mask and letting it hang around his neck. Their troupe just hit the air pocket on the old tower. He hopefully wouldn’t need it for a little while now. He liked the taste of this stale air the ruins captured. It tasted like…history.

“You met a guy wandering all alone? Why didn’t you bring him back to town?” J’kai cut in, ears perking up as she suddenly became interested in the conversation.

“Because I'm not evil enough to wish that upon even my most hated enemies.” Quipped, giving her ear a little flick as he walked by her.

“Hey! Meanie! ‘Sides, I never hear YOU complaining.” J’kai countered, rubbing her ear defensively.

“That’s, enough, ladies!” a woman, the only one still wearing her scuba mask, barked at the trio before remembering to add on a “…and Marko. We came here for a reason, so let’s get whatever it is you were looking for and get the hell out of here before any Oldguards show up.”

>> No.21208525

“You the boss, BB.” Marko shrugged. He seriously doubted there would be any Oldguard in this ruin. They usually only showed up in the ones with real shiny stuff. The only reason this place hadn’t been picked clean by other treasure hunters yet was due to how far off from any settlement it was. They would’ve never bothered to even check if it wasn’t for that tip. Of course, it was Bahi-Bahi’s job to be cautious, that eyepatch of hers was a constant reminder of what happens when you get careless while spelunking. Not that she’s any less aggressive than before. If anything, she got meaner and tougher from the encounter. You know what that say about porcupine dogs…

The quartet wandered around the ruin for a spell, grabbing an energy drink here and some catnip there, but never finding anything to make the trip worthwhile.

“I think that wanderer sold you bad intel, Marko.” Shansha smirked

“Nah, he seemed trustworthy enough. It’s gotta be around here somewhere…”

She only giggled at his denials “Face it. You got scammed, sweetheart.”

“Aha! There it is!” Marko’s face brightened as he ran forward and hugged a strange looking box with a glass panel on one side.

“A box? That’s what we came all this way for?” J’kai raised an eyebrow in confusion.

“None of you have ever stepped foot in the Archives, have you?” Marko sighed

>> No.21208530

“Reading about all that old stuff is boring when you could be finding it!” J’kai countered cheerily

“That’s men’s work. No reason to bother myself with it.” Shansha shrugged.

“I keep meaning to, but…” Bahi-Bahi offered weakly.

Marko let out another sigh. “Well, if any of you HAD bothered to listen to all the voices captured on the speakyboxes, you would know that the Earless used these things to store information, if I can only get it to–” he plugged a few wires into his portabattery and began pressing buttons seemingly at random until he was finally rewarded with a glimmer of light from the glass panel “–turn on. And there we go. Time to find out what the Earless saved on this one.” After typing on the tablet in front of him and gazing intently at the screen for a few minutes, much to the mystification of the three girls, Marko leaned back and pulled on his ears in frustration, letting them droop flat. “And the thing is locked. It needs a password, I think, but I have no idea how to figure out what, though”

“Well, if I was going to put a password on something, I would make it something easy to remember like ‘password’.” J’kai offered helpfully, entranced by the gentle swaying of a nearby dangling light

J’kai, bless her heart, was virtually every stereotype about her kind rolled into one. She was scatterbrained, as lazy as any of her kind in even the most dire of circumstances, it was damn hard to motivate her to do anything she didn’t want to do, and Bahi-Bahi would NEVER trust her with an arc rifle. And yet, when push came to shove, she was one of the best treasure hunters around. To this day, no one knows how she managed to lift an entire energy drink vending machine, much less swipe one from the middle of a den of kleptomanders without waking a single one of them up. Marko shrugged and decided to try her suggestion anyways. It couldn’t hurt.

>> No.21208544

“…It worked.”

“Hah! I'm a genius! In your FACE, Marko!”

Marko just chuckled quietly to himself and got back to work, removing various electronics from their waterproof containers and plugging them into the ancient machine and typing and clicking furiously, pausing occasionally to shoo away J’kai whenever her boredom compelled her to bat at his flitting tail. Finally he let out an exuberant cheer and began packing up his equipment.

“So what’d you find?” Shansha looked up from the rubble she had been occupying herself with, some nondescript object shining in her hand. “Some sorta treasure trove of old words?”

“Nope, something better.”

“Blueprints for some of the mechworks back home?”

“Even better.”

“Just tell us already!” J’kai interrupted frustratedly.

“Fine, fine, but only because you asked so nicely.” Marko hit a button on the speakybox he brought with him, prompting it to emit a bizarre noise.

“Is that…music?” Bahi-Bahi eyed him from her defensive point watching the door they came in from, lowering her arc rifle ever so slightly.

“Earless music.” Marko triumphantly corrected her.

“Oh man, this is gonna be the BEST pool party ever when we get back!” J’kai shouted before falling into jubilant gossip and planning with Shansha. Even Bahi broke down and started discussing what she was going do when they got back to town and who she was going to woo with her loot, her tail wagging so fast that Marko could feel a gentle breeze as he walked behind the group, silently praising himself for his decision of career change from mechano-historian to treasure hunter.

Table salt is made of Potassium and Chloride atoms (NA-CL)

TLDR: Water breaks down the bonds, leading to the salt chlorinating the water. (NA and CL ions dissolving the bonds into the water.

They were created in the shelters so that something intelligent would yet survive. They worked with what they had - already existing, easily modified, commercial artificial life forms.

I'd say it's because chlorine levels won't be low enough to sustain the Earless for thousands of years yet - they all died of old age still in the bunkers.

I'm going for "convincing provided you don't think too hard" here

>> No.21209753

Okay guys, what if the meteor that hit the north pole went into the water and dissolved quickly, but the one that hit the south pole remained on land and basically makes chlorine gas when it gets wet, like a chlorine tablet caught in the rain? Then the water would get super chlorinated fairly quickly, and the air would get fairly chlorinated and stay that way for a long time.

>> No.21209789

So then if it would take that long for the environment to become suitable for the kemonomimi, it would theoretically take far longer for it to become suitable for people and they couldn't make an underground shelter that would sustain them for that long?

>> No.21209830

What if genetics was literally mostly mechanical?

The Earless Ones could have like 1 month before acute chlorine poisoning took their lives.

So they punch in a bunch of stuff in the GENE-O-MAX SPLICER 5000 and left it alone to cook for a hundred years.

About that time, the Kemo wake up in tubes and make it out. Another 100 years and nobody even remembers past some vauge myths.

>> No.21209858

That's certainly a possible solution. It would make humanity much more mysterious to the kemonomimi, as well. Add some mystery to the whole thing and give them another motivation for looting human ruins.

>> No.21209883

Yeah, say it's an exponential decay curve, at least for now. Say the amount halves every 10 or 20 years. Levels fell quickly enough for resistant creatures, but the long tail of the graph means that it'll be a long time before things return to normal, if ever.

Chlorine is heavy and hugs the ground, where it's not too windy. Birds survived high up and flew to safety in the mountains, along with other stuff on high ground. Anything that couldn't escape the chlorine clouds slowly choked. Most of the life still around was also engineered in some way.

The skywhales? Nobody knows. Maybe they came with the asteroids.
