hey everyone, welcome to primordial evolution. For those of you new to this, we plan a little, make some creatures, then play with them and twist them to new and exciting ends within some reason, at least that is the working theory. With great news and a heart full of joy, it would appear Indonesian Gentleman, our game's creator, is back.

IRC: come and talk. The regulars know the scoop.

This session of the Evo (Evolution game) will be quite unique. We are covering two biomes on one continent. A freezing, yet arid northern wasteland, and a tropical forest in the south. On another continent is another set of creatures, the Vyrii, who recently gained a very good reason to start changing. The Vyrii side of this is a lot more unrestricted given their synthetic nature. Perhaps a grounding point for your worst nightmare fuel.

Pictured are creatures Generously and awesomely drawn or modified or both, by Nad and Notrip, and just two by me. The top group are the current contenders for the jungles, the bottom, for the frozen wastes.

Feel free to chime in, say if you feel something is missing, are the pictures going to be easy enough for you to edit, or just to say hi.

The selection for Northern creatures that you saw is already outdated. A predator and a new plant were added, and the Fluzpuff was changed. I'm on my laptop, so I don't have the new sheet at this time.
Also, the north game will be more of Taiga than arctic. Looking at the map, it is not arid at all up there. The desert has the rain shadow thing going on, keeping it dry, but outside of it, maritime climate. Heavy snow in the winter. Think of Buffalo, New York for the heaviest snow some years.

Stalckar: Stalck descendant. Ambush predator. Hibernates during the winter.
I'll get the picture on Sunday or Monday.

Should probably post the descriptions for the animals and plants.

1. Wezar. A close cousins of the desert dwelling wespars. They are solitary ambush predators, who kill their prey with their stinger.

2. Wlouz. Perhaps the last surviving member of the winged flouz lineage. They lack proper eyes, though they have many light sensitive patches on their skin. Because of this, they use their keen sense of smell and touch to navigate. Their wings allow them to move with relative speed, and their long tentacle arms allow them to grab and constrict small prey.
Like many flouz descendants, they posses light organs, which they mostly use to confuse both prey and predators.

3. Lasmar. Close relative to the desert bound usmals. The lasmals are slow, mud dwelling critters who use their raspy tongue to feed on plant matter and detritus.

4. Torrog. A cousin of the burrogs. These heavily armored and slow creatures move in small groups. They are mostly herbivorous, though they will occasionally eat smaller creatures, if they catch them.

>> No.21946454

>>21946444

Cont.

5. Hops. A primitive hoppa species, whose ancestors were blown to the central continent in their floating larval stage. These small hoppas are mostly nocturnal, using their light organs to illuminate their way. They are opportunistic omnivores, who move in small herds.

6. Snaruu. Slow moving and extremely poisonous colonial organism who live in humid places. They use their poison tongue to defend themselves and even attack other critters. They feed by crawling over their food, and releasing digestive acids which melt their food into slurry that they can then absorb trough their skin.

7. Swaho. Another colonial organism, which lives in water. Uses it's fins to move and it's small tentacles to filter food from water.

8. Stingar. A fast, eel like kuckar descendant, which uses it's sharp "face" to pierce the skin or trunk of the target, and then inject it's digestive juices inside of it, so the creature can then suck up the liquefied innards. They are omnivores, feeding equally on plant roots that reach to water, and on animals.

>>21946454
And now the plants.

1. Kakt. A close cousin of the kaskus. The kakt has a long trunk/leaf that resembles a tube. Inside the tube resides the kakt's spore poles. The kakt is most common in windy areas, as there the spores get around the best. The plant's defense against herbivores is it's hard skin.

2. Mugar. A yantar species that grows one great mug like leaf, that gathers water. It too, reproduces by spores, which are emitted by the long wispy "tentacles" that grow from it.

3. Lras. Hrass descendant, which stores excess nutrients in pulps in it's roots.

4. Freolla. Evola plant which has ring like leaves growing from it's segmented trunk. The topmost cup like leafs house the spore emitters of the plant.

5. Yaced. A fungal organism with limited mobility. Grows in murky and humid places, decomposing detritus. It can move it's fungal roots around slowly, trough hydraulic pressure. It spreads trough spores.

6. Chan. A cousin of the cho plants. It's thick and hard leafs protect it's juicy main trunk, in which it stores nutrients.

Might as well, now we got an excellent map and I got more free time. But first, we'd have to list possible resources, so I might make tiny little symbols for it.
Also, as for the mechanics, wasn't it somewhat like this:
-player's civ goes on 'expedition', specifies place, rolls dice
-GM puts the appropriate symbol on the map

Maybe we can do this in creating new townships/villages as well. There could be a small list to the side about the villages/towns/cities and what resources are there.

Those ideas sound good, though I am kinda wondering if the map marker idea, that I myself also at some point proposed, would really work out. It would require almost continuous modifying of the map, which would both give more work to our already overtaxed gms and eat away the image count quite fast.

What if the map would be instead split into sectors, like in the southern tribal game, and the gm's could just inform in what sector what resources were found, without the need to actually modify the map.
The sectors could also work in for movement speed, like they were supposed to work in the southern game.

I feel that the central game will be more tribal like, despite the fact that it is our second visit there. All other continents advanced overall far more than the central continent.
Actually, I would kinda prefer the game in central to be somewhat smaller scale, with small empires and tribes interacting and developing.

Lets wrap up the Crestlands, shall we?

As the years pass, the factory at Rust Pile is followed by more of its kind, and within two decades there were twelve factories churning out supplies for the Enclave. They are dark, smoke filled structures, with many workers choosing to don cloth masks to keep the choking smog out. Its not pleasant work, but the pay is good, and on off time a worker can make whatever he wants with the forges, be it a hammer, a few nails or lantern, or anything else useful and small. Factory, or Krabuk, work is hard work, but the benefits make it worth it, especially when the only other major source of employment is farming. In fact, as the population of the Crestland grows, it may need to import food from the more mild southern regions to survive.

The Airstrips grow in importance, particularly for the Bone Towns. Travel in the mountains is still treacherous, as independent vyrii, wild ramels and cidexes still lurk in the valleys. Thus, travel between the Bone Towns or between them and the Rust Pile is mainly limited to soldiers or large air transport. The factories shipments are brought by air to the Rust Pile, where they travel by ground to the rest of the Enclave. The Fists are made in greater numbers, and though not at the rate Ice Blades were made during the war. Just a few dozen for fighting the remaining vyrii warforms.

The number of Titan Ramels has been stabilized at a nice round 10. The breeders have worked out a system of growth and death where they think they can keep the number of titans steady for at least a century, during which time the can improve breeding efforts further. However, even the Cresthost (the army made from the ABR soldiers who still want to be soldiers) has doubts about keeping the Titans, especially as the lack of farms and the neccesity to import food becomes a more pressing concern every year. Small ramels and cidexes are still bred in large numbers, and fulfill many roles as domesticated animals.

As Vontil and his "sons" divide over the years, some of the "Sons of Vontil" take up a quasi-religious role, using their experience in dealing with the loss of fellow soldiers, even loved ones, to help the Frowgs, Joords and other races of the Crestland deal with their losses. These chaplain figures, called "Rebvontil" quickly become important figures in the Crestlands, and a Rebvontil even presides over the funeral of the Beloved Fathers of the North, Ronak Prebyn and Teotnaviy Vian. From there, the Rebvontil became a part of every Crestlanders life, helping them deal with loss, celebrate life, and providing the guidance of a hundred years to those who wander in their lives.

The future is bright for the Crestlands. May the Beloved Fathers and the Black Ramel watch over these peoples.

Here is another suzumou sketch.

In this picture, a small tribe of nomadic suzumou, who lack a godworm in which to live, have captured an adolescent sandworm, that they intend to use as a vessel for their eggs.
They have paralyzed the worm with their poison, and are conducting a ritual that seeks to appease the spirit of the worm, as the suzumou reproduction is lethal to small worms. The eggs that will be implanted within the worm will hatch into larval suzumou, who will feed on the innards of the worm and slowly kill it.
These types of nomadic tribes are actually the most common type of suzumou tribe. They are far smaller than their more fortunate cousins, who live in godworms, as their way of life can't support large tribes. They also revere the sandworms, but their beliefs differ greatly from the beliefs of those who live in godworms, and even other nomadic tribes.
Religious differences are the most common reason for conflicts between suzumou tribes. The suzumou seem to be naturally zealous species, and they don't need a great incentive to kill members of other tribes, just a small difference in beliefs is enough.

Here is a suzumou without any clothing, for reference. The suzumou haven't developed that complex weaponry, due to their already deadly natural weapons.

The suzumou can control which poison and in at what potency they use them, as the two poisons evolved for different purposes.

Bumbing with new hoppa species.

The first one is an aggressive pack predator that lives in the arid mountain ranges of the western continent. They use their sharp "claws" to rip their prey apart and their strong mandibles to maul them.

The second one is a fast moving and light weight omnivore that lives in plains and mevola forests. They use their large crest like fin to catch wind and "fly". They direct themselves with the wing like back tentacles. This method of locomotion allows them to move quickly in search of food.

The third one is a social grazer, that lives in lower slopes of the mountain ranges. They move in small packs that defend themselves by trying to intimidate attackers, or even charging them. Their heavy bodies and hard "face" makes them quite dangerous, against small predators.

The last one is a predatory whale hoppa species, that uses it's barbed tentacles to ensnare prey. They occasionally swim up rivers, and grab victims from the shore. The pipe like organ on their back side is their air pipe, that allows them to breath while mostly submerged. This pipe can be retracted.

The suzumou, while slower on foot, are still relatively mobile even if they aren't flying.
On long travels and in big groups, the suzumou often walk on foot, to conserve energy and so that the young and elderly can keep up with their pace.
Flight is usually reserved for shorter trips, or when they are in a hurry. When there are only fit adults on the move however, the suzumou will of course move even longer trips flying, as the adults have the resilience to do so. Warrior and hunter groups, composed of few dozen adults can move across large distances this way in relatively short time.

There's the bugs going rampant, battling against the Houyi, but it's mostly out of the civ's hairs. There's of course the fight between Suzumou zealots. Pusmal kingdoms migth declare war on Suzumou tribes if they know it's their godworms that's been wrecking Pusmal undreground cities. There could be some Tentouz/Pusmal clashes due to events in Tribal (some Tentouz like to play 'shoot the pusmal'), koburrog tribes might be like the VKB and raid other tribes, or be raided and defend like Hu-raan. Gorrirogs could come into conflict with any of them, although Hitangan tribe is currently in a trade relationship with a Suzumou tribe, the Zhen'qual.

The Ulbus plant (#5) grows in harsh regions where water and nutrients are rarities. They are common in dry wastelands. Becuase of this they never grow more than knee-height.

The Ulbus (uhl-buss) begins to develop a sort of nutirent storage system, so that it can survive on past nutrients. Basically, a starchy aboveground tuber. A potato on a stem.

The races available for the central are the suzumou, koburrogs, gorrirogs, pusmals and tentouz.

As for religion, the sandworms play a heavy part in the suzumou religions at least, due to the fact that the worms are a crucial part of the reproductive cycle of these parasitic wasp people.
Almost all the tribes, despite their differences in lifestyle and traditions, worship or revere the worms in some way. The worms are seen as holy or even partly divine beings, whose will shapes the desert and life itself. They are seen as symbols of both life and death, as the suzumou are born from their flesh, and upon their death, they are often left as sacrifices for the worms, so they may once again join with them.

I am loving those ceryatzi sketches by the way.
They look great.
Playing with the cedyas was so fun for me, due to the freedom it gave. Their fongal nature allowed me to mold them into very strange shapes.

I would also imagine that there exists loads of variation within the members of cedya species. Some ceryatzis for example could be taller and leaner than the others.

Anyways, regarding the pusmals. In the previous central game the other sentients seemed to regard them more like animals than sentient species. Their insect like behavior, and small frames most likely only reinforced this misconception. This misunderstanding about their nature could have far flung effects on the pussmal creatures.

Also, the tribes living in the desert are most likely nomads, unless they live in an oasis or are suzumou living with a godworm. Not all suzumou tribes have a godworm of their own, and thus they too are also nomads, having to rely on younger worms for reproduction and follow them around, or even sacrifice even younger worms to reproduce.

In larger scale, permanent settlements can probably only spring up around the oasises, or other resource locations of the desert, which makes establishing nations with large and secure borders very hard, due to the distances between the settlements.

For central I'm planning to do a religious organization, more a small cult. The goal of the group is to create a new doctrine to explain truth and the nature of god. Let me throw this out there and see what sticks. Please correct me if I mess shit up.

A small movement of suzumou started after the persecution and death of their heretical teacher. He taught his students that the old thoughts of the Godworms were only part of an incomplete truth. Given the chance, other suzumou took great offence to his teachings and stoned him. His students survived him. But without their teacher, they are at a loss what to believe.

>> No.22026210

>>22026201
These students are a blank slate open to new doctrines by their own beliefs or an outside influence. How to construct this new doctrine is one question they'll have to answer. Philosophic Debate is a viable option but not the most effective. Each new concept of Truth and God is constantly questioned and may give the new doctrine too little weight to be complete. On the other hand they could forgo that and interact with properly indoctrinated organizations. This way they could combine their insufficient perspective with their beliefs. And then on the furthest extreme they could believe Might makes Right. If there is an ultimate truth and an ultimate god, then surely his followers are the strongest and conquer their enemies. They would then gather the strongest tribes, adopt their beliefs to the exclusion of others. In the desert there is one big strong organized empire, The Hitangans. They may not be suzumou and don't offer anything for the new doctrine, but they haven't offer any ill will in the past.

These students must decide how will they settle themselves. Settling in the Hitangan Empire would give the Movement access to a horde of useful material opportunities, giving them plenty of long term security. However it might also delude the doctrine they're trying to create with alien influences. A Nomadic Existence is an option but carries with it the dangers of the desert, including hostile wildlife, such as the bladerunners and houzi, and other hostile nomadic suzumou, whom might take offence to the new doctrine being created. With these conflicts the Movement might not survive to finish their work. And if they can't finish it in this generation, there's no guarantee they'll find a godworm to continue the Movement into the next generation. This problem is present settling in the empire or surviving a nomadic existence, feeding back into the incomplete truth of the godworms that their teacher professed.

There is no alternative to using the godworm for procreation. The suzumou and godworm evolved together to complement each other and thrive in the harsh central desert. The suzumou worship and give offerings, and the godworm nurtures and protects their infants. An elder godworm is fully aware of this process, but the adolescent worms do not still sharing the same function. The younger godworms don't talk to the suzumou the same way as an aware elder godworm. So while they are objects of worship and reverence, the question becomes are these godworms the ultimate spring of truth and divine power. Or is there an altogether separate and more divine force that drew the two species together. An invisible hand in creation. If such a being exists then he is more divine and full of truth. This concept is perhaps the most heretical and dangerous to preach and would lead them into conflicts with hostile suzumou. Damn Pervert Philosophers trying to interfere with Good Honest Procreation. These two concepts, the tangible godworm or the invisible hand, are both viable in the new doctrine.

The conflicts hoply make sense to be peeps reading and isn't meant to be a complete thesis. I'm sure it'll be improved with criticism.

I didn't write that stuff about the religion and other stuff.
It is brilliant though.
One point that I must correct however, is that the suzumou are completely reliant on the sandworms for reproduction.
The suzumou do prefer the sandworms as their hosts, and in fact, basically all suzumou tribes do reproduce trough sandworms.
However, in theory at least, any creature with sufficient size and fat tissue could host at least few suzumou eggs. Of course, the suzumou themselves haven't, in any large degree at least, done this, and even the suggestion of reproducing trough other creatures than sandworms might be considered abominable.
The fact that the suzumou, in their view at least, are born out of the divine flesh of the sandworms, is an important tenet in the faith in basically all the suzumou tribes.

Yeah, that was me. I forgot about my name.

Yes, they are completely reliant on the sandworms for reproduction. And it is a universal trait shared by all suzumou tribes. The sandworms are tangible evidence of their significance. Without them, no tribe would be able to continue to the next generation. However this heretical teacher professed that the sandworms were an incomplete truth. The sandworms will never be totally out of the question. In fact talking to a elder sandworm would be unbelievably enlightening. If they can survive their followers, and if the god worm is willing.

Oh interesting, never thought about that. And I suppose its an idea that might occur in the Movement, which I'm calling them since I have no better name.

It is more than possible because pusmals use ground water to grow their food and they live in hives.

Also there has been some changes in how pusmals work. So the Queen is intelligent instead of stupid child factory and has some sort of genepool to choose from (what kind of offspring she can make). Foremen still have most of the power as the queen can't move so they are the ones giving commands. Workers are still quite stupid and only know how to do their job but warriors and hunters can make individual decisions, a bit like wolfpack but more intelligent. All pusmals are female but the drones who are rare. They are so rare that they can be used for diplomacy with other hives (instead of princesses we have princes)

Most of the stuff is just about culture. so there could be hive with more intelligent workers if they evolve that way or so. Only the way of reproduction is set in stone.

Speaking of night, Notrip's explanation for the blue color of the suzumou makes sense. They are mostly nocturnal creatures, and the blue hue of their skin melds well into the darkness.
Reason for their nocturnal living is due to their ancestral interaction with the worms.
Worms beyond adolescence, travel mostly above the sand, due to the fact that burrowing long distances underneath it consumes far more energy. When they hunt, they may move underneath the sand, but when they have to move long distances, they do it above the sand, and during nights, in order to avoid heat exhaustion from the daylight.
For eons, suzumou followed the worms around during the nights, as the worms were their way of reproducing. Bands of nomads, following the worms around benefited from their blue skin, which hid them into the darkness, like it hid all their other ancestors.

It seems that almost all wespars are blue hued, which could mean that they too are mostly nocturnal. The jet wespars on the other hand have no reason to hide from sight with camouflage, as their hordes make themselves very apparent anyways, and thus, they lack a reason to get rid of their nocturnal camouflage.

As for the suzumou priests, they consider their race to be born from the divine flesh of the godworms, who are the deities of the desert. Thus, the suzumou are the rightful inheritors of the desert, and the chosen servants of the gods.

Ok, here we go.
Got it with the limbs, also thanks for the huge hiden eye update, i couldn't guess.
So here's the biology organ by organ:
Behind the mouth, the food goes in a first stomach full of digestive acid produced by a liver/pancreas-like organ. The organic matter melts and the nutriments are directed to the lymphoïc system (cause it ain't blood).
The chime of all the unwanted matter then goes to a second stomach full of a methanogen arcaebacteria flora (like cows but way tougher). This stomach is equipped with a valve that opens to spread the gas into the baloon.

>> No.22039540

>>22039457
Here comes the mindblowing part.
At the bottom of the balloon, oll around the gas intake sprout, is a layer of neural cells.
These cells are able to synthetize thousands of different neuro-transmitter.
These organic molecules goes back and forth into the gas chamber where they then exist in two different form, normal and methylated (R and R-CH3) the methylation is a reduction of a CH4 molecule. This oxydation liberates H2 molecules that are known to burst in flames in contact with oxygen. that's why the baloon bursts in pierced.
When the methyled form comes back to the brain cells, it is interpreted as an information.
The brain works by interpretating the variation of partial pressure of each neuro-transmitter.

>>22039540
Once again, you're a master, molden.

>> No.22039662

>>22039540
All around the chamber are disposed small neural glands linked to the lymphoïc system.
This allows to "save" some neuro transmitter in liquid phase when their partial presure becomes high in the chamber. This is basically their memory.
These glands are also able to deliver into the chamber foreign molecules that were taken in the stomach or synthetized by the organism or "saved" earlier.
These can be coloured molecules, bioluminescent molecules, toxins, neurotransmitters, etc.
This allows them to adapt their colour in order to communicate, confuse preys...
This system can also deliver into the back limbs to create the deadly bane-bubbles.

>> No.22039683

>>22039662
The back sprouts only deliver H2 surplus that bursts in contact with oxygen and then propulses the creature.

>> No.22039728

>>22039662
Forgot a bit:
The neuro transmitter and their receptors on the brain cells are randomly synthetized by random gene splitting (that's the immunoglobuline synthetisis way)
Then, like the antibodies, these receptor can randomly be sensible to some foreign molecule.
This molecule can temporally become a new"thought component".

plasma ain't solid gentlemen, plasma is an is an agitated form of gas.
Long story short, fire is plasma.
If you're talking about plasma in a biological sense, it's the liquid part of the blood.
But i guess the bubble could be a kind of mucosity.

>> No.22040957

>>22040434
That's not what plasma is.
To be precise, plasma is an ionized gas.
Anyways, i tried to redraw the "hands" hope i'm doing it right.
Also notrip told me that there was actually multiples chambers of gas.
So i'd say they communicate and have different partial pressure of each element. This allows a better temporization of the gas-mind and also to not completely explode when pierced.
The biggest one is in the forehead.
The bubbles are acid mucus containing flammable substances and toxins drained from the gas chambers. They have a large palette of poisons because most of their neurotransmitters are neurotoxins for other animals.

>>22057786
Yes. Koburrogs.

They're distant cousins to Gorriogs, but they lack much of the exoskeletal plates, as well as the bioelectricity.
Coming from an ancestry of "prey creatures," Koburrogs grow up quickly, somewhere between 7 and 9 years, and usually give birth to twins or triplets. As a species, they've been around relatively unchanged for hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of years. Due to this, there are many groups with legends about ancient creatures which are long extinct.

Koburrogs are a fairly social creature, coming from their ancestors being herd animals. Another thing about their mentality is how in comparison to other races, they are less aware of death. This leads them to being reckless. If one dies trying to do something, it isn't uncommon for them to keep trying until someone gets it right.

In game, their "bonus" is bad luck. Expect more disasters to befall them.

tldr; Perfect cannon fodder.

>> No.22059625

>>22057786
Koburrogs started off as a trolling attempt that we made into a real race. They are essentially the kobolds of the game. They reproduce quickly, and have phenomenally bad luck. this is reflected in very harsh failure results. Biologically, two eyes, two arms, two legs. a tail, and a large shock of hair on their head. They come in a variety of colors. They are all usually adept at digging, and setting up half assed schemes. One tribe rose above the rest to create a great kingdom.
