A continuation of this thread >>19115700If you're just joining us, we got a 1d4chan entry, check there.> http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Fortune:_Evolution_GameThere you'll find links to old threads as well as more detailed information. It's still a work in progress, but the entry for part 5 is currently the most fleshed out.Alright, now, let us resume with the mad science. To the veterans of the very first thread, let that little image serve as a reminder of how far we've come.
bump for OP
The cleaner ticks develop wings capable of short bursts of flight - they use these to keep up with their hosts, and they also allow them to access gardenbacks infested with bloodsucking lichen.
>Fruit-bearing Bluegrass>Evolved from Fruit-bearing Bluegrass>Found in: MeadowThe Fruit-bearing Bluegrass starts emitting an aroma as sweet as its berries (akin to aniseed & aloe vera), to encourage Dwarf Chompers to feed and increase the rate of pollination.>Not pictured: smell.
>>19124748Alright mind is back in working order, time to evolve us some Skullroots.The Skullroots have adapted to their new land based existence, some even manage to live beyond the few days they were meant to. They've devised a clever tactic of planting their tentacles into the ground to appear to be like a young Asparagus Tree. Though that tactic has its drawbacks as well as they often will take root and the seedling will take over. Along with its previous evolution the Skullroot has internalized its major organs while forming the tentacles around its ribcage. (Thought I should make mention of that fact) The Stomach itself has begun to split into two sections as the Skullroot finds a need to live longer more resin is needed and that is supplemented by a health diet of bugs(Namely Snow Ticks) that they dig up while planting their young.
Featherscales develop much larger air holes, and a lung system, allowing them to spend much more time outside the water. They begin to fly for extended periods of time, hunting the gardenbacks that inhabit coastal regions or fly at higher altitudes.
>>19138350Two curiosities about this guy. One how do they build up even force and lift to get airborn if they are water bound creatures? Do they jet themselves out of the water?Second, they hunt by swarming the blimpies stabbing the fucker and then eating the downed corpse, yeah? How do they manage the force to puncture the skin of the Blimpie, assuming it isn't very thin in the first place. What I'm getting at is maybe they need a new way to induce their own force, like a jet.
>>19138547Probably the same why Flying Fish do? Which doesn't involve a jet.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_fish
>>19138758Flying Fish, despite the name, tend to glide. You can't puncture a Blimpy by gliding into it...
>>19138758Alright that works for take off, makes sense. However staying airborne, as they are apparently doing now for longer and actually "flying" are still a mystery to me. Especially for hunting. I could see them doing some spiraling dive bomb thing onto blimpies but that would require them to catch updrafts or something of the nature. Which actually sounds really awesome.
>>19138547I assume they use their tail and wings to build up force and jump out of the water, at which point they immediately enter flight. It would have been more gliding than flying before, but given that their wings have grown in size a couple of time, I'd say it's safe to say they can lift themselves into the air at this point.As for the hunting, I honestly just assumed their mandibles were sharp enough that they could pierce skin, I mean, they must build up some speed while flying, right? If it comes down to it, they only need to be able to latch onto it with their mandibles to be able to drag it down with them. Alternatively, they could attack from above, using gravity to their advantage. To be honest, my reasoning for this has always been that blimpies seem pretty flimsy, the same tactics that work against them probably wouldn't work with other animals.
>>19138826I always assumed the Blimpies were paper thin anyway, but then that begs the question of how on earth they hold up a damn garden on their backs especially when they are barely human sized. If anything the Blimpies need to go through some change, get a bit bigger, develop tougher skin to combat these badder Featherscales. Make them work for their meal.
>>19138826Once again, you have read my mind Stooge. Between you and Father you're either psykers or you have access to some seriously Orwellian stuff that I had no idea was in my house.> induce their own force, like a jet.No, no, no, we're not having this turn into [pic related].>>19138909The lighter-than-air gas that holds the Blimpies up must also keep the plants up too?
>>19138928But... That's so awesome looking. Also I had no idea that even existed in someone elses game. I'd suppose that would make sense. Was it ever described how they made that gas?
>>19138955They produce the gas through digestion and store it, iirc. And realistically the garden isn't that huge, given the scale of the blimpie the plants are tiny.As for blimpies developing defenses, that's really up to someone else to make, I don't have any particularly clever ideas in that regard.>>19138928What is that from, anyway? I assume it's from IG's threads, but I'm just reading through the first one atm.
Hey, can I get a scale referrence for the ravedragon? despite lighting it up like a christmas tree, I have no idea of its size. Oh, and I've been envisioning the bioluminescence as being controllable by the creature; as in it can light up or go dark, change colors, etc. at will. Is that agreeable?
>>19139027It's about twelve feet.
>Spitter Crab>Evolved from Spitter Crab>Found in: SavannahThe Spitter Crabs start chewing dead wood, plant matter and sand to create a papery substance and build shelters from the harsh winds.
>>19139040>That sizeAs cool as the idea is and as much as I want to see spitter crabs eventually building sand castles with it, I'd scale that way down for now, when you first posted it without the image I imagined a small wall that it would have to kneel to hide behind, not a cave large enough to hide a spineback in.
>>19139077Spitter crabs are the size of laptops so that's only about the size of an office chair.I'm also assuming they group together, if they were individuals then I agree they'd build smaller walls.
>>19139027>ravedragons confirmed for cuttlefishAlright that's just straight up awesome. In terms of size I was under the impression anywhere from 6-15 feet. Probably in the upper reaches of that scale.>>19138994I might throw some of the blimpies some love as my Skullroots are okay for now without any major predators and Asparagus Trees going strong. Time to come up with some defenses, because we all need our foils.
>>19139128Fair enough, don't let me put you off. I just had a bit of a double take when I saw that since I was expecting something it would barely fit into. It seems like a bit of a leap between the crabs developing the substance and making group dwellings out of it, but whatever, the spitter crab hasn't had anything over the last thread so it might as well do some catching up.
>>19139179Tell you what, we'll have this as a go-between.The eventual goal may or may not be Paper Wasp meets Termite mound.
The spearfishing crab grows much longer legs, allowing it to wade into slightly deeper waters. It limits its movements on land, as it needs to set its legs far apart to reach the ground, but acts as an advantage when hunting, as they are given access a much wider range of fish.
>>19139253That's a lot more reasonable, not to mention really cool. Kudos on the idea, by the way, I was thinking of who could be turned into an ant/termite analogue.
>>19139077Actually, it's fine, to me anyway. It reminds me of the paper wasp nest that put up shop in my house. All winter we had wasps hiding in the rafters and divebombing me and my little brothers.To this day, wasps freak me right the fuck out, even though I was about...age 5 when it happened.>>19139027I'm imagining them as somewhere around the size of a blacktip shark. Here's a size reference.>>19139152> all need our foilsYes, evolution is very much push and shove arms race. You have a weapon, well I have a shield. Well now I have a SHARPER weapon! Now I have a THICKER shield! (and so on and so forth).>>19139179> playing catch upThat's a good way to justify it.
Well, looks like I'm in the minority here. Honestly, it's probably easiest to go back to the original size at this point under the justification that they band together in groups to create larger dwellings.Certain tentacle leaches adapt specifically towards the changes that have occurred to ravedragons, simulating their lightshow and tendrils.
>>19139440>leachBut the spelling is right there...
>>19139253Well if you guys agreed and came to a civil compromise I'm all for that, I just couldn't type fast enough.
>Spearfisher crabs, while fish are scarce, will hunt down rainbow blimpies, being easily identifiable with their already adapted eyes.The Rainbow Blimpie soon realizes its idyllic life hovering over the sea at it's pleasure is beginning to take a toll upon its kind. Come to close to the beach, and you'll be speared. Float over the ocean too long, swarm of mini spears. Not exactly the most pleasant of deaths either way.The R. Blimpie females have begun to pick their mates based upon a combination of lush garden and size, the larger the better in both regards. With the new found increase in size the Blimpies have been able to manage slightly higher altitudes. In addition to that the R. Blimpies tend to follow a more herd like structure now of roughly 4-7 females with a single solitary male. Other males roam on their own, a dangerous prospect.However with size comes a disadvantage, the Blimpie relies heavily on collecting plants while floating through forests and this size has become a major issue in regards to doing so. Most R. Blimpies tend to avoid the Equatorial Jungle now, barring thinly treed areas and instead pick from the Meadowed Plains where a new favorite thrives; the Fruited Bluegrass. Another disadvantage is their reliance on sea based food stuffs and have to descend in order to obtain such.Also I know that is a lot in one post but the R. Blimpies haven't been touched in either thread thus far so I figured it was reasonable.
>>19139152>>19139039Alright, thanks.Some Ravedragons follow the scent of food to open waters closer to the shore, leaving the Abyss behind and forming a new subspecies of Opeanwater Ravedragon.
>>19139579I can only imagine the war face that fucker has. Swimming up to their prey in utter darkness, sleek and streamlined with everything pulled back and turned off as it were. And then suddenly a school of fish. Time for action. Pull up that hood tentacles lashing out, like a cobra/cuttlefish combination of the sea with flashing and colorful displays. The fear that beast must put into other creatures is palpable.
>>19139309forgot the pictureherp-derp-a-dee-derp-derpin'
>>19139748Why did they get so much smaller? Or am I mixing up our horrific ocean monstrosities?
>>19139776That girl is actually half yeti.
>>19139664I was just imagining that earlier, though frankly, the scariest thing on Fortune at the moment is the insects.The Featherscale's wings, long neglected, grow hugely in size, allowing them to lift themselves much higher than before. They use their now huge wingspan to catch air currents, passively gliding along the air, spending much less time in the water thanks to their newly formed lungs.They glide in small packs, until they see a blimpie, upon which they cluster together and begin rising in altitude, hoping to get the height advantage They will target one blimpie at a time, dropping down en masse, dragging it down with their sheer cumulative mass when they fail to kill it.
>>19139664> read it in his voice>>19139776>>19139789I'm sorry! How big were you guys imagining them?
>>19139895I think they were mentioned to be 12 feet somewhere. The one there looks more fitting for a midnight raveshark, since those are 5-7 feet.
While the newer breed of spearfishing crab develop longer legs and the ability to stand upright, a species within the equatorial jungle, while still fishermen, begin to acquire a taste for blimpie meat, also eating the vegetation on top to gain access to the starch within the plants. Though it doesn't exactly help blend in with the jungle plants very well, the spearfishing crabs have developed shells with a more greenish tint.
>>19139830I'd agree to that. Though we haven't seen much love for our bugs thus far. Also, that is a really awesome mental image. I can see them forming up in V formation, raising up then splitting off and dive bombing as necessary to pick off their prey.
>>19139748wow, just like with the garden blimpie you really dissapoint me. I expected the rave dragon to be able to eat even the demolisher if it ever got the chance.It has been the horror of the deapths even since fortune was just a child. And it couldnt stand a fight against a regular shark?My idea for blimpie defence:When the blimpie is about to die it triggers a chemical inside it that reacts with the gas it uses to float.This reaction causes the blimpie to explode. This makes it so that every creature (even the armored spearcrab) thinks twice befor going on the hunt for these floaty fellows.
The Bull Chomper's horn structures continue to grow. As the largest and hardest are selected for, their form continue to be largely haphazard and unwieldy.Their hooves also apart to be made from the same material.
>>19140031> you really dissapoint meI sorry...It seems *my* mental picture of some of these guys doesn't neccesarily match with you guys'.But, hey, it could get bigger. Go ahead and grow it, ever-so-slightly, as time goes on. It can become the Mosasaur if you can justify it.I just often worry that if a creature is too big, well how the fuck is it going to eat enough to sustain itself. The Demolisher is already a pretty big handwave.
>>19140109I remember either reading or hearing, that the size an insect gets is also determined by the ammount of oxygen in the area.
>>19139970Now imagine them doing it to this song.http://youtu.be/V92OBNsQgxU>>19139664Exactly. Like the Dilophosaurus...but more lights and less spitting.http://youtu.be/JxNhLFJz6iMAs for the discussion on size the wiki states that the Shadow Ravesharks are around 3 feet long, the Common Ravesharks are 5-7 feet. As such, I imagined that the Great Ravesharks and the Abyssal Ravedragons are 13-17 feet depending on amount of food they eat, and the Openwater Ravedragons top out at around 20 feet give or take a few feet depending on food.
>>19139970Yeah, that's how I imagined it. The image of groups of them just gliding is really cool as well.>>19140031The problem with that is that kamikaze tactics would be quite difficult to evolve, I imagine, given the whole passing on genes issue.>>19140109Honestly, the demolisher is pretty much pure rule of cool, but honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about scale. The ravedragon can afford to be at least the size of real sharks, and even the spineback is only weird because the other creatures are quite small, it's not as impressive when you realise this thing is essentially the dinosaur analogue of Fortune, the only difference being the lack of other dinos.
>>19140149Alright, I'll add that onto the wiki later.>>19140159See, that's just the thing, T-Rex had other *dinosaurs* to eat.
>>19140031I've had a simliar idea, that I'm posting right now. Not quite as dramatic, yet, but they could possibly become Hindenburg Blimpies soon. The Bllimpies have begun to develop, alongside a slight increase in size again, sacks of contained gas from on their upper back. Seeing as the the major predator comes falling from the sky this was a reasonable adaption. These sacks when punctured let lose a gas slightly different from their internal one, one with a more pacifying effect. Before when a Blmpie was seen eating their own garden it was a sign of weakness, now it is to produce this from the Banana Leaf, the gas gives the attacker a "high" that will calm them to the point of giving up attack and simply falling from the back of their attacker. This keeps in line with their generally calm demeanor and herbivore nature.
>>19140244OH. MY. GOD.That is... that's...
>>19140244>and then animals began harrassing Blimpies just to get high
>>19140295>Come on Frank just one more hit.>Fuck off Bill I only have 1 sack left!
>>19139941The spearfishing crab, seeing that their prey had flown high above them, in response evolve feeding arms capable of extending and twisting.
How does the shogun walrus "see".
>>19140425Sensitive hair, like the whiskers of a walrus.
In response to the blimpie's new defense mechanisms, the most successful featherscales become those who use immediately lethal tactics. Their claws elongate and sharpen, allowing them to deliver severe wounds before the prey can respond. Even if they are affected by the release of gas they will most likely wake up to a floating meal.
>>19140218So can I get a confirmation of the sizes of the pre-opeanwater raveshark/dragons? Depending on size I'll go from their.
>>19140549Oh that's a good one. The "I don't give a fuck I still killed you" approach. I enjoy evolving this way far more, act and react as opposed to building up something for no apparent reason. Because MOAR SPIKES.
Featherscales, being incapable of movement once stranded on land, begin using their smaller flippers/pseudo-wings along with their wings for limited locomotion.>>19140634Yeah, sorry about that, I think my creative juices are running out. I may take a break from evolving featherscales, I'm running the risk of starting to see this as a competition. To be fair, there aren't as many options for predators in an evolutionary arms race besides 'More spike, more teeth, more stronger', and it's really more a case of them changing tactics - they swoop down and attempt to puncture the blimpie, taking the gas head on, in hopes of killing the blimpie and dining on it upon recovering from the gas. If anything it screws both of them over, since any scavengers can eat the blimpie before the featherscales get a chance.
>>19140549Now is the time for the self destructing blimpies to shine!I dont care for the "The problem with that is that kamikaze tactics would be quite difficult to evolve, I imagine, given the whole passing on genes issue." argument.I mean there are creatures on earth that are poisonous to eat. How did they evolve if it doesnt work that way?
>>19140844After breeding, the animals probably act as a living shield for their young, killing the predator before it can get to the babies.
>>19140737I understand what you mean. However I was referencing the Spineback varieties when talking about the "MOAR SPIKES" thing. One more Blimpie for me, then maybe something else.>>19140244Creatures of prey tend to have eyes located on the sides of their head, it gives them an advantage in terms of general view. That said most of these creatures are land based and don't have to fear divebombers. The male Rainbow Blimpie has begun to develop the basics of a third eye, because of the silent nature of the Featherscales this was simply the only proper response. The "eye" is only capable of registering basic light movements that are synonymous with a Featherscales divebomb.The herds, now roughly 14-17 with 2 or 3 males, will sound a trumpeting noise resonating within the lower frequencies that heralds the coming onslaught. When heard the sound triggers the release of the chill gas sacks in a hope to deter the attackers before they have a chance to hit.
>>19140859Good point, it will be to evolve a "black box" for teh babies. Wich it would need any way, as the kids are free food for any flying creature ATM.
>>19140844I guess it's a matter of the species is less likely to get eaten than a matter of the specific specimens who first develop the tactic being less likely to get eaten. Works as a preventative measure, but it doesn't provide the kind of immediate benefit that would make it more likely to get passed on. No idea how this works really, I'll shut up now.
>>19140844Hey you want to, go ahead, I'm done with the Blimpies for now.That said, the mental image of Blimpies blowing up midair while the Featherscales weave in and out of it is absolutely hysterical to me. I could imagine the view from the beach would be quite interesting.
>>19140109> you really dissapoint me>>I sorry...I didnt mean to be so harsh. This thread is MDMA soaked kittens and I would like it even if you killed the ravedragons off!
>>19140946>kill the Ravedragons offBoy, I oughtta bop you one.And next post for me is gonna go ahead and continue with the Ravedragons and make the 20' Openwater ones 'official' if I don't get a confirmation on their sizes.
>>19140920If we ever do enter the tribal stage, the primitive tribals will be completely confounded by this world. They'll probably worship exploding blimpies.>>19140886Oh yeah, sorry, misinterpreted what you meant. I'd have to agree on the spine back, though I did just get an idea to add to their fluff - they regularly attack packs of aggressive predators, hence how it can support its huge size, and why they need so many layers of defense.
>>19140966So the new Openwater will take the common name and the ones staying in the abyss will become known as Abyssal Ravedragons?
>>19141092No, I meant that I'm going to go with the sizes I put forward in >>19140149 as being the agreed upon sizes.
>>19141179For some reason, I interpreted your post as making the openwater the official ravedragons instead of just finalizing size issues. I must be tired or something.
Good night people.
Hey, is there any way for me to participate in this if I can't really do picture changes due to being horribly untalented/skilled with doing that?
>>19141219No problem, probably coulda explained it better myself. Aslong as it's clear now.>>19139579Whew! All this swimming is hard work! Good thing the Openwater Ravedragon's legs are starting to adjust. So far, they've spread out along the species' length.
>>19141485do horribly shitty drawings with good fluff and if it is a cool enough idea people will help you clean the drawings up.
>>19140634> act and react as opposed to building up something for no apparent reasonSee, that's what I've been going for, THAT'S what I've been trying to do, what I'm trying to make Fortune about.I have no fucking idea why I couldn't put that into words though. I kept struggling with trying to get it across, but I think you hit a major nail on the head.
>>19141562Even if you don't make the background awesome, someone'll build off what you make, and then it'll be updated somewhere down the line.
>>19141179I already said that those sizes were canon now, did you miss that post? That's what I meant by "add to the wiki later".>>19141219Eh, don't worry, I did that too actually.>>19141485>>19141562 and >>19141880 said it better than I could. Part of the reason for pictures is that it makes it easier for me to follow along and keep track of the changes you guys make. Just do your best and it will be enough. I find people are often better at these kinds of things than they give themselves credit for, hell, I'm like that, shit, Van-fucking-Gogh was like that, Frida Kahlo was like that, about the only guy who wasn't was Pablo Picasso, but he was basically "Tony Stark as a painter instead of superhero".
>>19137841In order to expand the spread of it's species, the Deathmasque parasite has evolved to be able to infect other form of arthropods such as crustaceans. No longer limited to insectoid hosts, the parasite can increase the number of creatures able to be infected by it's wind born spores.
>>19141542It's probably a case of some form of "eyes bigger than your stomach" but things like this keep inspiring more art projects for me.I'd love to do an animated .gif of this, but I already do a ton of stuff for Fortune, dunno where I'll find the time.>>19140946Had to look up MDMA, but I think you're saying this is a good thread, right? Ha ha ha. I'd say thank you, but it's you guys who make the thread far more than me, just like it's often the guests who make a party rather than whose house its held at... actually that analogy doesn't work, a house with a hot tub is a much better house than a trailer...

>Lost the old thread so no link for you>Wild Herb>SavannahThe Wild Herb patches again rely upon their symbiotic fungus as their ancestors did, though the toxin build up isn't in the surface plant but the vast, dense root systems. Just as it originally adopted the defense measure to protect against the predations of crabs, now it uses its toxic resources to shield itself from the actions of the herbivorous burrowing animals. These poisons are primarily concentrated in the lichen- and fungus-sheathed large roots, with the smaller ones left to develop more quickly before the poison can slow them down.>Red is danger, fire and knives.>Also go fast
>>19144359Yes, but none big enough for their own ecosystem, though, now that you mention it, that would be a great idea for future regions.Rest well, and dream of alien worlds and foreign suns.>>19144442Welcome back Nameless One.
>>19144490...You know I always assumed Ravedragons were fuckin' gigantic because of abyssal gigantism, like, worthy of the "dragon" name.Hm what things haven't gotten any love yet this round? I should give one of them an evolution. I don't think the 'lesser' ravesharks have, have they? Anything else?
>>19144788The players were all imagining them as bigger, so they are now.As for critters with no love... Ice Rays, Smilers, Piranha Fly, Ice Bug, Snow Beetle, Aquabeast, Gel Walrus (there's a first), Camelback, Shadow & Common Ravesharks, Rock Slugs, Stingers.I think that covers it.
>>19144842You're missing the Ravesharks there. I'm still quite fond of the scientific name Flipper Infernalis.
>>19144842The Walrus has had entirely too much attention paid to it. But some of those things have pretty much hit good evolutionary niches and don't need changing unless something dramatic happens (the slugiforms, stingers) or we want to split off new niche species (like a slugiform that makes gigantic coral reefs instead of little tubes).I've got some ideas, but I'll sleep on 'em until I've thought them all through. In the meantime I hope someone comes along with some interesting evolutions and said ideas are no longer needed :3>pony flagivI think Captcha wants us to evolve the Bull Chomper to have a cutie mark
>>19144960>>19144842I guess I've been the guy giving the gel walrus most of its love but frankly I'm out of ideas. I've been thinkin about giving it more senses or making a subspecies that eventually turns into a bird but I can't really justify it. Like nameless one said it don't really need changes unless something happens.
>>19144960I mean, seriously, the Walrus has basically no real predators. It has almost no evolutionary pressure on it compared to most every other critter. Until this fad to turn it into a predator it basically existed in an ecosystem of its own, just chilling out and doing whatever it is they want to do without regard for anyone else. I miss those walruses, they were the true pimpkings of the planet. Now they're just another pack hunting carnivore.
>>19145036You try eating nothing but dirt for a millenia and see how you like it.
>>19144997There's a whole slew of other critters than need interesting things to happen to them. Spread your love around!
