Hey kids! I'm going to assume your parents have told you where babies come from. You need a boy and a girl, a sperm and an egg, and you get a half mommy/half daddy baby.Boring!Let's conceptualize some alternate forms of reproduction for new human species.>OrcsThis exclusively male species has been compared to the Saharan cypress. Unlike normal haploid sperm, the orc gamete is diploid, that is, its nucleus contains the same number of chromosomes as the nucleus of the body's other cells. When an orc mates with a fertile female of some other, closely related species, the sperm nucleus begins dividing on its own, using the raw material but not the genetic information of the female gamete. The maternal chromosomes simply deteriorate. Orcs are generally unwelcome wherever they move, being not unfairly accused of "stealing our women".>The elf subgenusThe many closely related elf species have caused biologists a lot of headache, having some of the most confusing relationships in the Homo genus, similar to a collection of Iberian minnow species. >FutanarisLike banana slugs, futanaris are simultaneous hermaphrodites. A futanari has both a penis and a vagina, the latter being located below the former. The testicles are internal. Since pregnancy involves a larger cost than merely impregnating someone, futanaris often engage in mock battles and other methods of asserting social dominance for the privilege of being the "male". Futanaris can self-fertilize, but this is rare and generally considered shameful.I could go on, but I think this suffices to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. And please add your own ideas, and share your thoughts!
>NymphsSimilarly to some mole salamanders, this human subspecies reproduce via pseudogamy, in which sperm is necessary to fertilize the egg and initiate the embryo's development, but is later discarded. The children are therefore born as clones of their mothers. Unlike amazons, who live in their own communities secluded from other human species, nymphs prefer to live among humans. Like humans, most of them are heterosexual.
>AmazonsThis all-female species reproduces via parthenogenesis, in which the embryo develops from an unfertilized, diploid egg. Their method of reproduction is very similar to that of the New Mexico whiptail, in that they still need sexual behavioral stimuli in order to achieve optimal hormonal levels. Of course, since they live in exclusively female communities, almost all sexual behavior is homosexual. Contrary to popular media, attraction to human males is rare and generally seen as a societally harmful perversion.
Dragonborn are created when the teeth of a dragon are removed from its body (whether it is living or dead) and buried in soft earth. These dragon-like humanoids burst from the earth fully-formed, one for each tooth buried. Though they have adult bodies, they initially have child-like minds, but even there they mature more quickly than other humanoids.
>>31323207Please, no futa.
>Night elves and sun elves are both normal, diploid, bisexual species. If they reproduce, a female hybrid known as a twilight elf results.Twilight elves can, similarily to amazons, reproduce via parthenogenesis. However, twilight elves can also reproduce with sun elf males. In such a coupling, the sun elf haploid sperm enters the diploid twilight elf egg. The resulting children are female triploid hybrids called moon elves.
>>31323207Pictured here: a group of orcish maids entertaining two visiting elven lords.
Dwarves are carved from stone by skilled dwarven sculptors, on commission by a married dwarven couple. When the sculpture is complete and the main life-giving runes are carved, the two married dwarves each etch their own personal rune into the small of the statue's back; these runes magically fuse, forming a new and equally unique personal rune, which completes the animating process and transmutes the stone statue into living flesh.
I like my elves to be like those mexican lesbian lizards. Orcs are from a harsh, magically volatile continent and have three sexes.
>>31323529The dragonborn one was not the OP.I'm specifically creating methods of reproduction that have nothing to do with real-world biology whatsoever
A species of jungle elf that has a symbiotic relationship with a giant orchid. Instead engaging in sex with other elves, they "pollinate" the orchids to transfer both their genetic information as well as the plants.

>>31323586What if in a fantasy world babies factually are brought by storks to expecting families? What would be ramifications?
>>31323980Stork bounties would be a thing
>>31323980Soldiers with shotguns and similar weapons would be a very real threat to the reproductive capabilities of enemy nations.
>>31323980One ramification would be that, a nation could target the storks either for capture or destruction. They could utilize this tactic to weaken the enemy by lowering their birthrate (and possibly increasing their own). After 20 years of this, the belligerent nation would be ready to invade their weakened, elderly neighbors.
>>31324018>>31324020>>31324061What about the Stork King? He wouldn't take kindly to people killing his subjects, not at all.
Stork bait. Couples build elaborate nests with feeders in the hopes of attracting a stork to their household. Alternatively, couples who do not desire children would put up scarestorks. Infertility issues would be less of an issue. No Henry VIII divorcing/killing his wives in the hopes of getting a son.
>slimes are a viscous lifeform devoid of brain, bones and muscle tissue. Its formed pretty much of water. It moves and thinks using electrical impulses. Brain and body are only one.It needs water and proteins for substeinance, water makes it grow and proteins make it stay stable, otherwise it could just desintegrate into a lifeless puddle. They can use bones to adopt a unchanging form but their natural acidity ( also their way of eating ) makes the use of those only temporal.They have two ways of reproduction: The first one happens when the slime falls into a big body of water. If it is big enough the slime will start growing and growing until it reaches critical mass and breaks into several copies of itself, normally between 5 and 7. Those copies are usually devoid of the inteligence levels of the member of its race and can be not considered sentient. The other way is by the fusion of two or more slimes who get together and slowly start spining for days, the protein deprivation starts making them be less solid and thus they end fusing. This process kills the parents. When they fall dead of hunger between 2/3 slimes per participant appear in the fused mess.
>>31324107If there is a Stork King, he would have an incredible degree of influence over politics and honestly basically anything he feels like influencing. Reproductive ability is important to people.
>>31324107What do the storks get out of delivering all the other races babies?Also: going around killing storks becomes the best birth control pill possible.
>>31324107There is also the question of where the storks get the children.Perhaps they all hatch from eggs laid by the Stork Queen. She uses her divine magic to create the children. The Stork King sends them away, because he has little desire for children himself (they might try to overthrow him).One of the funny things though, is that in the Stork-verse, people would probably be more sexually promiscuous since sex is no longer attached to reproduction. A person could fuck whoever they wanted without fear of getting teen pregnant.
>>31324147Storks are angelic entities. They get the fulfillment of their purpose out of it.
>>31324160>A person could fuck whoever they wanted without fear of getting teen pregnant.>yfw a stork comes knocking on your door with your new bundle of joy
>>31324160On the other hand you might get a baby delivered to you even if you never had any sex.
>>31323207AD&D already defined Orcs and Ogres as having odd reproductive systems that allowed them to somehow mate with females of any other race and still produce orcs and ogres (with half-orcs and half-ogres being a rare mutation). Get more original.
>>31324188I'm pretty sure the classic Stork tale directly specifies a married couple in every incarnation of the tale. I suppose I could be wrong, though.
>>31324180So they're really obvious targets for demonic entities, then?
>>31323207>futaFuck off. The idea was good until you just made it into your personal fetish fuel.
>>31324160>There is also the question of where the storks get the children.Pssht, didn't your parents tell you anything? A diamond gets put under a leaf in the cabbage patch, loser.And a stork won't bring a baby unless there's a mommy AND a daddy for it, duh.
>>31324243They are targeted by harpies. The harpies steal the babies, cover them in a goo cocoon, and, after a few months, a new harpy hatches.
So what if we talk more social aspects?Take for example the Forgotten Realms, where if I am to take an example Ed Greenwood provided, it is said that in frontier areas sometimes men die while out hunting or after having been called to war. As a result it is perfectly normal for his wife to find a new husband. And if that husband is an orc, and she happened to have daughters from her previous husband before getting with said orc it is considered perfectly normal and acceptable for the orc to 'marry' the widow and all of her daughters.And considering how bizarre that is to modern sensibilities, I wonder what other odd social customs exist in fantasy settings.
>>31324287That was in the early days. Now storks go out in large formations, with angels more suited for direct combat providing escort.
>>31324273So some unscrupulous people would make a career out of stealing diamonds from cabbage patches, but if they get caught they'd get brutally beaten just like abortion doctors?
>>31324234>>31324273These are /tg/ storks. Fueled by neckbeards instead of Victorian repression (though, from some of the replies in this thread, I couldn't fault you for confusing the two). Single people, in order to drive away storks, wear a special talisman. It's really all a racket between the Stork King and the talisman makers (wizards).
>>31324321Wouldn't that lead to harpies weaponizing and making pacts with demons though?>stork B-52 formation getting attacked by Fw-190 harpies
>>31324383>>31324321Harpy-Stork arms race.Kings make offerings to one or both parties to curry favor.
>>31324383Storks now only make deliveries a couple times a year, by carpet bombing large swaths of countryside with parachuting baby bombs.
>>31324315Going by that example, Ed Greenwood almost certainly has a cuckold fetish.
>>31324460(if you get on their bad side you get cluster bombs instead of babies, though)
>>31324593Hard to cuckold someone who's dead, no?And he had another example of an orc and an elf that were a couple (seems he didn't share the same views as the Complete Book of the Master Race), though it turns out an elf given birth to an orc child is painful and damaging to her internals.
>>31324502Wouldn't it be way more economically sound plan to let the babies live? You ain't gonna have skeletons unless you first have people after all.
>>31324606No, you still get babies. Just the retarded ones.
>>31323207What the fuck, man. Seriously, what the fuck.
>>31324639>not making blood golems out of pureed babiesget on my level.
>>31324646There are mercenary corps whose entire purpose is to steal smart babies and replace them with retarded babies from their client.
>>31324646So where does Santa stand in on the stork-harpy conflict? He used to have the monopoly on flying and delivering things after all.
>>31324667Storks versus harpies.Necromancers versus hemomancers.This is looking better and better
>>31324632>Hard to cuckold someone who's dead, no?Luckily no one is ever mistaken for dead in fantasy settings.Honestly, it probably is innocuous, but the bit about marrying the daughters too but only when with an orc is just really, really strange. It doesn't fit with anything else in the setting, and there's absolutely no reason for such a practice to develop.
>>31324702He was one of the earlier casualties of the war. Got caught by a harpy pack and torn to shreds.
>>31324696So basically like some kind of...reverse storks? What animals the mercenaries employ then?
I remember coming up with 2 ways for an all female society the fantasy one if pretty boring as its just when you feel a deep emotional connection to some one you magically get pregnant by them leading to half the woman to emotionally repress them selves as they are the more dominate sidethe scifi one if men have died off a while ago and reproduction is left to nano bots. everyone has there own. once two people decide to have kids the nano bots collects material from the 'donors' and combines it with the eggs of the 'incubator' and the baby happensthis also means if like on a bus two strangers think "I could get that one pregnant" and "oh I would have a child by her" the nano bots will make the pregnancy happen
>>31324702Santa doesn't give a fuck. He delivers presents to all children. Even baby harpies.If someone tries to shoot down his sleigh, he goes full fat man.
>>31324702I'd say we just use the old /tg/ WoD Santa where he's actually a vampire who delivers everything thanks to cheesing out blood powers, time magic, and fae gifts.
>>31324732More like changelings. They use giant dragonflies.
>UndeadEither they aren't contagious at all, or absolutely everyone is infected. Any corpse that isn't buried, burned or eaten will naturally rise as a zombie of the slow and stupid variety. They don't need to eat anything tangible, but drain the life of others through skin contact. Once they have enough, they become ghouls, with all the skills and memories of the dead person (they are NOT the same person) as well as minor regeneration. A ghoul can in turn evolve into a vampire, which is faster and smarter than most mortals and regenerates in minutes. Belief in other kinds of corporeal undead, or in mortals who become undead while keeping their souls, is unfounded.
>>31324722To be fair he doesn't specifically say it's an orc only thing. Just that it's something humans within the cities associate with orcs.His example was because he was asked if there are half-orcs not born of rape, so he started talking about different relationships that exist in the realms and that was one that came up. The full explanation even goes into talking about how it's mostly a security thing when you're living on the many fringe areas that are shitty. Especially considering that in most of the areas where this could happen the orcs are a bit more civilized than the rape/murder/pillage orcs of the Spine of the World.
>>31324754Is there a link/screencap for this?
So I'm guessing in this setting blood lineage isn't that important considering how easy it is for babies to be stolen or delivered to the wrong address. Then again it could be the opposite where if you're a bad enough dude to keep your line pure for at least 3 generations your family is not one to be messed with.
>>31324745I like this. Santa retains his neutrality through superior firepower.Nations that have been hit by a retarded baby bomb teach those kids to be vile little shits, then harvest the coal they get in their stockings.
>>31324722The orc provides security to all the women. The mother is old and busted, though, so he doesn't want to restrict himself to only reproducing with her. So he also hooks up with the daughters. Think mormons/muslims.
>>31324837There wouldn't be a concept of blood lineage. The child doesn't share your blood, it is not born of your loins. It was simply delivered via angelic entities.
>>31324860I don't think retard coal is big enough supply to fuel even a small factory, not to speak of an entire nation. There must be some other use for it.
>>31324860The problem with that is that the children are still vile shits when they grow up, speeding the collapse of the civilization.
>>31324945Conscription and pointless wars can take care of that, as well as supplying necromancers with plenty of skeletons to make actually useful, contributing members of society.
>>31324957So...vampires, then? They run the whole show, right?
>>31324834http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17222728/Took a while to find it. I keep forgetting how dated suptg is.
>>31324978Well, so far, we have Santa the super-vamp, and an economy that revolves around baby blood, industrialized necromancy, and the business of stork lures.So.. yeah, probably.
>>31324945That's why you keep your retard babies and smart babies segregated. The retard babies you use for unwilling slave labor or cannon fodder. They live in isolated ghettos.Smart babies are what you build your actual society from.
>>31325060Unfortunately, the storks don't label the babies. So you won't find out that they're retarded for a few years.
>>31325096Wizards say they have a divination that can distinguish between the two with 100% accuracy. They also offer mass retard screenings for very competitive pricing.
>>31325142 True, you can, generally, rely on the wizards. But the guild can be a bit spiteful at times. Insult the wrong guy and all your babies have club feet
>retard babies>baby mashersCapturing or killing the babies was fine, but this shit is going full edgy tryhard.
>>31325213only freaks are even in this thread to begin with
>>31325213I'd love to hear your alternative ideas for the stork-verse.
>>31325213Looks like someone escaped the ghettos.
With an abundance of babies, with the possibility of receiving babies of another race, what does that mean for baby cuisine?
>>31325329Only freaks eat babies. That would be like eating fertilizer.
>>31323207Wow OP, do you write the scripts for hentai comics? You even had futa in the first post. Not even waiting for comedic timing, you put that shit in immediately? You must really think this is a good idea. It's not, but you seem pretty convinced it is.
>>31325239I'd probably go back to the idea of the storks being angelic. Instead of a swarm of storks delivering babies, there are specific storks that deliver groups of babies. These storks could be associated with specific human traits, so if the blue stork delivers your kid you know he's going to grow up smart while a red one could signify someone who has great physical potential. Considering that we established that the Stork King is someone that can be talked to, people with enough money or influence could guarantee that their kids are delivered with specific storks in order to customize their traits.
>>31325525I like the idea of some sort of stork mafia that controls those bribes.
>>31325569Maybe a sort of mix between a mafia and a sort of Planescape faction lite, where each color of stork represents a specific human ideal and each would like humanity to prosper under what they believe is the one true way. However, the Stork King wants to keep things as neutral as possible and has a group of storks that determine stork colors based on the parents. Unlike the king these storks can be bribed if the price is right.
>>31325142They lie. Claim the non-retards are retards, take them, raise them as apprentice wizards.Where did you think wizard wisdom boosts came from?
>>31323207I thought this was going to be a thread worth of pent-up sexual frustration and cringines. Then I read the answers to OP.I almost shed a tear. Thanks, guys.
Why did you steal this from AH.com, OP?
>>31325381>being this mad
Well. This thread was pretty nuked.So, shall we continue with the baby blood based economy?
>>31323980Who brings stork babies?
>>31328113Because fuck Alkahest.
>>31323207>>31323225>Ork x Nymph>What do?
Ok, so far we worked out that baby blood makes for good fertilizer and reagents. Oh and blood golems.Is there any other use for baby blood?
>>31328568Blood transfusions, vampire food, shark bait, etc.
>>31324160>There is also the question of where the storks get the children.I assume it's like that Pixar short, and the babies are formed out of clouds.
>>31323207... Did you make this thread again?Give it a rest you silly cutey.Tell me more about your elves and not the orcs.
>>31323207>Unlike normal haploid sperm, the orc gamete is diploid>the sperm nucleus begins dividing on its ownlol look at this 10th grade biology>Gammete is diploid not haploid>No genetic variation>New disease mutates>all orcs die due to genetic stagnation>mfw
>>31323207Wombs are portals to Heaven's launch bay. In heaven sperm is fluid used in complex biological communication systems to transfer information from the host. The realise of sperm into a woman's portal signals the angles to prep a cherub for mortality. The cherub is compressed into a simpler form and deployed. Over a period of nine months it grows into a full mortal before it activates proper. Unfortunately the compression process wipes the cherub's memory, thankfully the agents of the upper planes are patient and the cherub factories show no sign of slowing in output.
This one all-female race breeds entirely by holding handsAll members have incredibly tiny spores on their hands, which release when two of them come into contact. People who are physically more fit to hold children end up bearing the child.Spores can also be released by hugging, cuddling noses, or brushing cheeks together, which are all considered incredibly taboo in the race's society.
>>31323547That sounds pretty cool.
>>31324331That would be more like people beating a serial killer who stole fetuses, if they caught them.
>>31332098So Kif's race, then?
>>31332098>Spores>not eggs that magically show up after cuddling and tea parties and only hatch after absorbing enough pure love from those taking care of itShit race/10
>>31324342the talismans (talismen?) only work once though, so that you have to buy one for each time you do the horizontal tango
>>31324230hmm... no, you're mistaken. 90% of half orcs were indistinguishable from orcs, 10% could pass for human, PCs would fall into the latter category (or were assumed to).Both were still the same thing.
>>31324257Eh, futa are pretty interesting from a roleplaying standpoint, and its certainly no more fetish fuel than the half-everythings of 3.x and Pathfinder.
>>31332565>Ecology: Sages have expressed much concern over the years, wondering why ogres can interbreed with humans but not with elves or halflings. When the actual answer was discovered, the sages’ concerns proved unfounded. The explanation had nothing to do with any supposed common origin of humans and ogres, but rather in a unusual characteristic that ogres share with orcs: rapidly adaptive biology. Just as orcs and ogres can adapt quickly to any terrain, from forests to the highest mountains, their genetic construction allows them breed with any humanoid race.
>>31332619>it's my fetish, it's really not that bad
>>31332666>their genetic construction allows them breed with any humanoid race.Yeah... and to produce half ogres, hence the statblocks for various kinds of half ogres.iirc the 2e MM, for example, contains 3 kinds of half ogres: half ogre half humans, and two kinds of ogre/orc hybrid (one from a male orc and female ogre, one from vice versa).I prefer OP's take: half-everythings quickly get out of hand. Tolkien was right to have half elves count as one or the other.
>>31323207I have tought about this for several years, but have never been able to put it into any of my campaings or settings.Think golems or warforged like bodies, were a spirit inhabits, this body is bound to them as much as your soul is bound to your body, they dont have gender or sex in the natural fashion, but a lot of them identify either as female or male, and often pick names and model their bodies over time to look more manly or more femenine.for reproduction, they do something very similar to sex, both spirits of the fathers "lock" while they are physically touching, this creates pleasure the same way you have it when having sex. Eventually, if done enough times and with enough luck, one of the parents gets "pregnant" basically a mix of their energy produces a second personality to inhabit within the body of one of the parents (usually the "female" but male pregnancy is a thing) over time this second personality grows enough and cannot be contained along with a the body of their parent. so the parents search for one.they often buy or make one themselves, the parent gives birth by transmitting the secondary personality to the body. From then on the body and soul get bonded firmly, and cannot be removed.Thing is, that over time the conscience and personality of the newborn develops, and with enough time, they spend time changing their body parts for others more to their liking. something similar goes on with names, they are picked by the newborn when they reach certain age, up to there, they are often called by a simple stock name or simply "son"
>>31332698Its still a pretty workable idea for stories, even of the non smut variety.
>>31323207>GoblinsGoblins, outliers to most other races throughout the world, are peculiar in their genetics and in what way said genetics are passed, and while they are largely monogamist in most of their civilized tribes, specifically those located near the heart of the land (and therefore human land), they have a fairly polygamist method of passing said genetics. Similar to that of house cat, the female goblin can actually use the genetic of multiple males in the creation of offspring. This largely is a very good thing, as it allows the species to strengthen itself at an extremely rapid pace and to levels unparalleled by any other species, but does have a many negative repercussion in that at some point the extreme diversity of said genes simply divides the individuals strengths rather than passing them all. An example of this would be a infant that received traits from warrior, shaman, rogue, etc, and rather than inheriting all the traits simply ends up as a master of none. This usually only happens in extreme cases, but none the less is very common in some of the more barbaric wilderness tribes located near the northern mountains or the southern swamps, and once it begins, the tribe will eventually weaken itself to the point of near extinction. It is not uncommon for them to be saved, by a miracle of sorts, by some individual goblin who, frankly speaking, won the genetic lottery, but these situations are always short-lived. The goblin species as a whole, however, are largely unaware of the trait and therefore don't use it to it's full potential, simply leaving them the pitiful species they are often seen as, outside of a few extremes who keep to themselves.
>>31332619>Eh, futa are pretty interesting from a roleplaying standpointThere is literally no way to use dickgirls roleplaying EXCEPT magical realms. How is that in any way shape or form on the same level as having a mixed heritage or being exposed to multiple cultures
>>31333418Your western inspired moral compass is showing.
>>31333449Dude, dick girls never make sense.
>>31333449Pretty sure that point you're seeing is just the immense boner you have for hermaphrodites.
>>31333418>There is literally no way to use dickgirls roleplaying EXCEPT magical realms.Stop using "literally" to mean "figuratively, but with emphasis."You can tell plenty of stories about futa without their pants coming off.
>>31333499People can't even make a story with homosexuals without their sexuality becoming who they are as a character. Christ knows they cant do it with dickgirls
>>31333499>>31333499>You can tell plenty of stories about futa without their pants coming off.In which case it will have no impact on the story.
>>31333534>If a dude doesn't fuck someone in a story there's no reason for him to not be a woman.
>>31333499When it comes to language, usage is king. From the Oxford.literallyPronunciation: /ˈlitərəlē, ˈlitrə-/adverb1In a literal manner or sense; exactly: the driver took it literally when asked to go straight across the traffic circle tiramisu, literally translated “pick me up.”1.1 • informal Used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true: I have received literally thousands of letters
>>31333569>there's no reason for him to not be a woman.Replace that with "there's no reason for him to not be a woman with a cock"Unless you create some (magical) realm where there is societal impact from dickgirls, it's nothing but fetish fuel.
>>31333569I know you'll freak out about it, but it's effectively true.Sexuality plays an extremely small role in most characters, and it wouldn't significantly impact a story if their gender was changed.Most characters in Harry Potter or Star Wars, for easily identifiable examples.
>>31333529I don't remember if Left Hand of Darkness had sexins in it (I'm pretty sure it did, but I was too young to remember it if so), and it used genderflips and (ghastly) sexual tension as a fairly workable plot element. Not same thing, but shows stuff that's otherwiseIf, of course, Left Hand of Darkness was supposed to be massive fetish shit, mea culpa, etc. Again, read it when I was a kid, didn't notice anything fetishtastic.Raine is an example of a futa whose pants never come off as well.And sure you can use homos without their sexuality being who they are as a character. I've played male and female bisexual characters without it being a remotely dominant feature: in the case of the male, it was a Tzimisce vampire whose orientation (such that it existed at all) was hardly relevant to anything, and in the case of the female, it was an imperial psyker who was less magical realm and more utterly starved for human contact and alone, and again, had no obtrusiveness to the storyline.
>>31333609What makes a realm magical versus non-magical?Because if gender roles make a realm magical I have some bad news for you.
>>31333534Having a slightly better ability to empathize with both sexes and the possibility of children being born in wedlock to two apparent females can have an impact on the story without it being fetishy either.
>>31333737Its a magical realm if there's stuff I dislike.
>>31333737It's magical realm if your fetish is shoehorned into it and given preferential treatment because it's your fetish.
>>31333639In a world where gender roles don't exist and certain personality tropes aren't more associated with one gender than another, I could agree with you wholeheartedly.In ours however, I have to suggest that gender flipping say Ron Weasley would have led to a character many would not find as believable.
>>31333821Much more so if you genderbent Ron and then slapped a cock on Rona Weasley.
>>31333821I can totally imagine Hermione working as a dude. Sheldon's actor can play him.
>>31333864Only if the dude has tits.
>>31333839Indeed. Which is why I say that the use of gender is an important thing, and not something we can just assign and say 'if the pants don't come off it doesn't matter'.
>>31333882I didn't really find Hermione sexualized enough for her sex to matter.
>>31333821I'd like to think that anon was talking more about characters like Dumbledore when he brought up Harry Potter. Very few people guessed the headmaster was gay until Rowling came out (ha) and said it. Dumbledore's an example of a good character whose sexuality doesn't fucking matter in a story, because if "[insert sexuality here]" is at the top of your character's "Interesting Traits" list it just shows how sorely lacking in depth they are.
>>31333949 I'm inclined to agree, but I also think the wider, more reactionary "Harriet Potter" level stuff is also true. Were the entire cast genderswapped at random, the following would change:-Which side of the dorm they slept in, maybe.-Zhao Chang is now slightly less effeminate.-Cedric never gets a role and so the actor is never cast in Twilight as a consequence. Harry going for Tam Riddle, or Harriet going for Tom Riddle, or any permutation... The story's the same. The fanfics are too, since they force magical realms where everyone has or doesn't have cocks anyways.
>>31333937It's perfectly reasonable to have Hermione as a cuntboy with tits the size of genetically modified watermelons and use it as a plot point without taking xer shirt off.
>>31334153>cuntboy with huge titsThat's just a woman with a manface (maybe).
>>31324342Please, if your baby storks only delivered to married, straight couples, you'd have SJWs delacring Jihad on the Stork Host as soon as Fantasy Tumblr is discovered.

>>31324722 You're not thinking straight. It's a chance for an orc to have more booty, especially if it's elven booty.
question: reptiles, birds,fish and insects that give live birth instead of laying eggs. I'm pretty sure theres at least a snake that does this but how wide spread is it?
>>31325667I'd so shit myself if I saw a red stork carrying a baby.
>>31334453I hear live births is a worldwide thing now. Though some hipsters refuse to hive it a shot.
Futas are magical realm (even if I can't wait to suck one off). Even starting with the name, it's a race totalry built around the fact that these are chicks with cocks. You can play elfs, dorfs and orcs withqut really ever touching their sexlife, yet still being meaningfully elf, dorf or orc. Only if you can fluff dickgirls to such degree that dickgirlyness is just a sidenote, can it then pass from being fetish fuel.
>>31334737are you calling aasimov's foundation and earth a magical realm?
>>31334737Okay let me try...They're just a third gender that happens to exist.In terms of gender roles they're seen as lesser than the women, because they're not as big and strong as the men nor are they as good at maintaining the home life/child-rearing.

>>31323547What happens if the sculpture builds a non-humanoid body in some respects? Could you have eight-armed spider-dwarves or multiple dwarves combining together to form a larger and more powerful dwarf?
>>31335889Theoretically, but such would require extensive modification of the primary animating runes and would be unthinkable in all but the most radical dwarven societies. Even the practice of adding minor aesthetic flourishes to the new dwarf's form is controversial in many dwarven holds. What human would give their baby tattoos in the womb? In others, though, it is traditional and rank- or profession-based.
>>31323225Why would they need sperm if they don't get DNA from it?
>>31332422That thread was great.

I have a species of demons called Infernals that reproduce with any other species. They skin the chosen convert alive and feed them demon blood, which causes their blood to corrupt and harden into a new skin. This process is extremely painful and takes many hours to complete. Demons are not nice people.
>>31340968I feel like they are just misunderstood really.
>>31341488Well in my setting there's the Redeemed and the Fallen. The Redeemed only reproduce with those willing few, and the Fallen are trying to keep up with their mass murder and in-killing by converting anyone they feasibly can. So, *Fallen are not nice people.
>>31341612See? Misunderstood. I bet with a big hug and maybe a gift of a fine fluffy unicorn plush, these fallen would be nice folk too.
Who wants to hear about weird reproductive processes?
>>31341677Purdy sure that's what the thread's for. Give us ideas plox.
>>31341677I do! I do!
OP, why you gotta be stealin' my shit?http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=311430
As for what this is, I was just throwing out some ideas for alternate forms of reproduction, giving them the first names I could think of.It's not supposed to be some kind of unified setting or anything, just a few thoughts to stimulate a discussion.It doesn't have anything to do with "traditional games" of any kind, so yeah.
>>31341722>>31341700Moss is weird: it creates gametes (if you're in this thread you'd better know what that word means) which themselves become a totally different lifeform (kindof a tall stalk-like thing) which then makes nonspecific sexual gametes which rain down on the moss below, and mix to make more moss babies.
>>31341797Woops, forgot my tripphatAngler fish are weird: the males are tiny compared to the females, and they latch on with their mouths and merge with the females bloodstream, becoming surface parasites that just spew sperm forever and ever.
>>31341797>Sperm elementals born from masturbating people running around and impregnating womenNeat
>>31341797>>31341821>call yourself a geneticist>spew animal planet tier knowledgeCute. Moss is fucking plebe tier when it comes to weird reproduction.
>>31341821Fruit flies are weird: they can have a variable number of chromosomes and determine "gender" by proportion of male sex chromosomes to total chromosome number. This process is not perfect, so you get all kinds of wacky half/she/he/xe/fuck/shit/queer flies. >>31341827Thats an interesting way of thinking about it, but they're not golems made of sperm, they are sperm that grew up to be something else, then decided to go all sperm-ception. Its like a 2-stage ejaculatory vehicle which takes a lifetime to achieve its goal.
>>31341848What you want more specific bullshit? Fine. When sperm pierce an egg it depolarizes and ionic gradient and literally shock-bombs all the other sperm into submission. Its impossible to clone dinosaurs a'la Jurassic park because of maternal effect genes. Look it up, or as me to explain it. Plants can interbreed REALLY easily compared to humans. Unlike humans, the more chromosomes a plant has, the bigger it gets: wild potatoes have about 18 chromosomes, while domesticated potatoes have about ~124. Its easier, and more common, than you'd think to make a bird who's wing is both a wing and a leg at the same time: the meat tastes amazing. Happy now?
>>31341904>Its impossible to clone dinosaurs a'la Jurassic park because of maternal effect genes. Look it up, or as me to explain it.What is maternal gene effect?I already thought it was impossible to clone dinos because DNA doesn't last that long ;_;>Its easier, and more common, than you'd think to make a bird who's wing is both a wing and a leg at the same time: the meat tastes amazing.What do you mean "both a wing and a leg"? A wing with leg muscles on?
>>31341930Who shit in your cornflakes? >>313419521. Ya got genes that you dont actually use; some of them are maternal effect. Maternal effect genes produce proteins which are used by the host mother to assist in early embryonic patterning (see: making you more than a wad of meaty dough). Since we hardly have any idea how to figure out which genes are maternal effect, or how to properly implement them (we could figure it out, but probability dictates it would take a few hundred billion hours of research) we wont ever have shit like, say, dinosaurs. Chances are we may end up figuring out human maternal effect genes, as without them you cant really grow a baby in a steel womb or any of that other scifi shit. 2. Going along with "fun with embryonic development", there are genes called Hox Genes which, among other things, kinda guide the growth of limbs and bits on an embryo. Long story short, if you use the hox gene for "wings" and the hox gene for "legs" at the same spot, you end up with a delicious wingleg: it kinda forks sortof halfway though, and you get a drumstick with that delicious wingmeat in a crack in the bone, as well as a little malformed winglet. Pretty gross, but pretty tasty none the less. Moth's have what could be called a "penis" and it is just as furry and adorable as the rest of 'em. Moths are just great all over.
>>31342039>Awww! Who's a cute little mothman? You are!>Honey, quit jerking it off.
>>31342068>tfw she (whoever she is in your life) will never call you a "cute little moth man". >>31342071Ebbic TrawlKindof sex related: A female octopus will starve herself to protect her eggs, and almost always dies or abandons her young after they hatch. It has been speculated (not just by me...but also by me) that if octopi (its technically "octopodes", since its a neuter-gendered latin word, but WHATEVER) ever developed any kind of socioecological predispositions, they'd probably take over the world. They're just that smart. Id go on about other weird sexual whathaveyou, but Im pretty sure anything else I could cover other than interesting quirks of embryonic development are already mentioned in this thread, or already common knowledge.
>>31342039>implying that moths aren't horrible, disgusting creatures from the darkest depthsTake your pro-moth agenda elsewhere.
>>31342254Nigga why you hatin on moffs?
>>31342125>octopi (its technically "octopodes", since its a neuter-gendered latin word, but WHATEVER)no, it would be octopodes in greek grammar, but it's an english word, and the english plural is octopi. that english gives a word made of greek words a latin plural is incongruous, but doesn't make it technically incorrect or make anything else correct.tl;dr it's like saying technically "russia" shouldn't be spelt using the latin alphabet because it's a cyrillic word. well too bad, we're speaking english.
>>31342318Fair enough. Its not like it matters. Hopefully we wont need to be referring to large groups of cephalopods in the near future...
>>31342292Because fuck moths. I leave my windows open to get some fucking fresh air and the damn things invade my room and either divebomb the back of my head to get to my monitor or make a shitload of noise banging into my lights.Moths are shit tier. Like the vast majority of non-social insects are.
>>31342394>Not having insect netting
>>31342318Actually it's even worse than the Russia analogy, because "Russia" is a word in Russian too, while "octopus" is an entirely English word that happens to be derived from Greek words. It's not just a Greek word brought into English.
>>31341612Wouldn't forcibly converting people lead to the first action the new demons would do after they were "born" being to attack the prior demons in revenge?
>>31342529It happens, yes, but the transformation leaves the convert weak for a time. And, once they have recovered their strength, they generally find that their newfound power is quite intoxicating. Fallen communities are never large, and generally don't last long, whether from infighting/eradication from enemies/fracturing due to differing objectives.
>>31341677Weird how?Seahorse weird, or anglerfish weird?Need to know how weird we're talking here.

Myconids which reproduce in a way unique to fungus where they may at any time release spores that grow into patches of mycelium that produce new myconids that are genetically identical to themselves but may also intermingle genetics in a way where you have, simplified for explanation purposes, a "red" Myconid who drops spores to grow a "red" mycelium and a "blue" Myconid who drops spores to form a "blue" mycelium which then grow together into a new "red and blue" mycelium that produces "Purple" Myconids.

Troll reproduction>Trolls do not incubate their young within females. Rather, after the sex act, the resulting mix of gametes is stored and taken to a gigantic insectoid creature which resides underground, a member of a species symbiotic with trolls. The combined gamete mixes of all trolls from a given mating season are incubated within this creature's gestational body. Troll genetics do not operate on traditional lines, and, rather than some alleles being dominant and some recessive, dominant pairs of alleles are resultant of hormones produced in the body of the mating trolls in question; strong emotional attraction produces more of these hormones, meaning that a pair of trolls who are particularly deep in love with each other will produce offspring who will be genetically similar to them. Trolls less attracted to each other will still contribute genetically to the species, but they will have no obvious "offspring"; they will merely produce background genes which can be grabbed and used by any zygote as it forms inside the Queen's body
>>31372850It sounds to me like troll gender is superficial. Are they a monogender species?
>>31372850I see what you did there.
>>31323547That's a really cool idea.You could even explain dwarf subraces by having them made from different minerals. Like, maybe grey dwarves are made from granite, red dwarves are made from jasper, etc.
How about a race of sentient words?They reproduce by parasitically infecting the mind of a sapient creature, compelling the host to use them in sentences.
>>31373556I think it would be interesting if they were magic spells. Makes the relationship more symbiotic (because magic is pretty cool to have) and would give even more reason for wizards to obsess over studying magic, writing it down, and using it at any opportunity whatsoever.

Haven't checked the thread, but has anybody posted the piss dorfs?Somebody wrote it up yesterday, that his dwarves have no females, and they reproduce once a year by bingedrinking and pissing with their bros.Spermlike things come out with the piss, those clumps attach themselves to fungal spores in a river of piss, and after 12 months a pissdorf is born when the one who pissed longs for a child.

Lets do this properly. There are four types of reproduction:Multiplication - standard sexual reproduction [humans/most things]Division - single creature splits or buds into multiple creatures [microbes/slimes/jellyfishmen]Addition - new members of the species are built externally, may use other organisms as conversion material [robots/golems/vampires]Subtraction - members of a species fuse together and their numbers decrease over time until they become a single entity[shardminds/highlanders/race born from the fragments of a destroyed god trying to unite and reclaim their divinity]Anything else is just variations on these four.

Dryads are all female. They work by having males of other humanoid species pollinate them by fucking one to pick up pollen, then transferring to another for impregnating.

This thread really should be archived. It's actually managed to spawn some pretty interesting ideas.
>>31399006>spawnThat pun wasn't one of the good ideas. That said, archiving would be a good idea.
A dwarf is born when the mommy and daddy dwarf braid their beards together. I new baby dwarf will bud from this braid which will then be severed and act as the baby dwarfs beard.
>>31398798>Symbiosis is wonderfulWhat might be of concern is that the Dryads are involved in potentially parasitic symbiosis on the macro scale. While an individual human might get sexual benefits from these encounters, Dryads, with their free sex, are definitely a distraction for human males who would otherwise be fertilizing human eggs. The Dryads thus face a conundrum. They must have sex with men often enough that there are good odds a man will encounter at least two for as long as Dryad sperm stays attached to his penis. However, they can't have sex with them so often that the men forgo creating a new generation of men.
>>31399218Dryads could evolve to get around this issue by having a really long lifespan and living in small groups in isolated forests only to breed with the rare passing adventurers.
>>31399218Dryads only pollinate during a few seasons a year, so they don't interfere much with humanity's constant breeding. In fact, druidic festivals are based around these times and everyone gets drunk and naked together as the dryads get fertilized by every man and woman willing to be Da Bee for them.
>>31399218I imagine that some dryads, to deal with the "odds of encountering more than one" problem, would take to traveling in small groups rather than alone, banging any male they find one after the other to ensure fertilization.
>>31399468I like this idea. Makes sense and seems like a good reason for a Druid community to spring up an an isolated area.
>>31399602The dryads would also grant them boons in return for their services.
>>31399377>>31399469>living in small groups in isolated forests>traveling in small groupsThen we run into inbreeding problems. As much fun as it would be to fuck a series of dryad sisters and their mother, it's not in their best genetic interests to impregnate each other. Stationary dryads would be especially prone to issues, as at least traveling dryads could trade members of their families whenever they encountered another group.>>31399468This makes more sense, and it's more in line with plants and insects in multiple ways. You'd need to get special druids moving between regions every now and then, though, or have multiple dryad families come together.
>>31323207Thread archived on suptg. Remember to upvote.
>>31399602Also makes for a good cultural support system. Druidic/Dryad society stays a core part of the human one, helps find kids lost in the forest, and wards off some of the worse dangers in their magical realm, humans have clear and positive reason not to simply deforest the area that appeals to most of them, and learns natural patterns of population control so that they don't over-saturate the area so as to grow beyond what the environment can support once they're less dependent on the fey trees for protection.
>>31402418Wouldn't zealous outsiders have a problem with tree-fuckers? I'm sure there would be at least a few groups who'd think this communing with nature would be unnatural.

>MerfolkMerfolk actually have two variants with regards to breeding. Type F merfolk breed in a similar manner to fish, laying eggs which are then fertilised externally; for this reason, the type F males tend to be popular at Deep One parties, as their sperm is an unusually potent fertiliser. Type M merfolk breed in a manner more akin to mammals such as humans; in this case, they are capable of interbreeding with humans and human-like beings, though due to chromosomal dominance, the resulting child will almost always be 100% genetically merfolk, give or take any minor cosmetic differences inherited from the non-mer parent, e.g. pointed ears and increased upper body attractiveness from an elven parent.>UndeadTechnically speaking, undead beings cannot "reproduce", due to not actually being alive. The weakest, zombies and skeletons, are little more than magically animated corpses, essentially constructs formed from dead bodies, and possess no more traits or advantages than the physical base of the being they were spawned from; indeed, they are often physically weaker than their predecessors due to rotting or non-existent musculature, and certainly cannot utilise any of their skills.Ghouls and revenants are a step up from, if only a little better than, zombies and skeletons, though they do inherit some intelligence, memories, and personality from their predecessor, albeit not skills, and tend to rot far more slowly; many a low-level undead hunter has met their end at the hands of a ghoul or revenant mislabelled as a zombie or skeleton. Ghouls typically require protein to sustain themselves, normally (but not always) flesh-derived, and if required, they usually sharpen the teeth and nails (or, if nails are lost, phalanges) available to them to maximise their ability to consume flesh; revenants are usually tasked with one goal only, and collapse when that goal is either completed or loses relevance.cont.
cont. from >>31406265The next level of undead intelligence, draugrs and wights, are frequently at or just below the level of intellect that their predecessor body possessed - they inherit significantly more memory and personality from their predecessor, and more importantly for their summoners, they also inherit the skills that their predecessor possessed, for instance magical ability or, in the case of wights specifically, skill with weaponry such as swords. In addition, it is at this level that an odd effect begins to occur - in a small-ish area around the draugr or wight, previously-deceased corpses are resurrected as low-level undead; it is not uncommon to see them with an "honour guard" of zombies and skeletons. To note, whilst the draugr or wight is almost the same being as their predecessor, they still rely on the magical energies of their summoner to keep them going, and there is therefore a lot of discussion regarding whether or not they are, in fact, the same person as their predecessor, just in undead form.The highest degree of corporeal undead intelligence appears in the form of vampires and liches, which are almost always produced as a result of a necromancer desiring immortality, and subsequently transforming themselves into a self-sustaining undead. Vampires are typically far stronger, smarter, and more skilful than their predecessor, becoming moreso as they age, but require flesh and blood to sustain themselves, and contrary to popular belief, do not transfer vampirism on to those whose blood they drain; liches may or may not choose to retain their flesh, but are typically extraordinarily intelligent, with extensive magical power, though they often sacrifice physical ability in exchange. To note, the natural corpse-resurrecting field available to draugrs and wights is exarcerbated in vampires and liches, becoming much larger and more easily controlled, to the extent that corpses can be resurrected as any of the lesser undead practically at will.

>>31333463Hyenas. That is all.
>>31419814My reply was in a reply chain that split off before anything about boring, utopian druid sex was mentioned. There was also nothing negative about elves beyond the fact that their birthrates would decline. Stop being an apologist for the elves when they're not even being criticized.
>>31421383>boring, utopianJust because it isnt 3edgy and grimderp as fuck doesnt mean it has to be utopian. They would be at odds with civilization at large and essentially be tree-based Bacchanites that worship nectar instead of wine. The only thing that changes is now their population is stable, which if anything makes more sense than it declining, since the dryads NEED pollen carriers.Your shitty suggestion makes about as much sense as if flowers killed the very bees and butterflies that drank from them and spread their pollen.>elf apologistThanks for confirming yourself as one of those elfhater faggots
>>31421698>Just because it isnt 3edgy and grimderp as fuck doesnt mean it has to be utopian.My apologies, but I got the sense that people were only adding in the idea of druid orgies because that's what they'd personally want to experience. When I mentioned outsiders having issues, I got a "who cares what outsiders think" response from >>31405954>Your shitty suggestion makes about as much sense as if flowers killed the very bees and butterflies that drank from them and spread their pollen.All that dryads require are humanoids. Like any inter-species relationship, things vary, and what might work out for species X and Y may not work for species X and Z. Dryads could be fine without elves so long as they learned from their mistakes. If elves have a low population and most people only ever see them as adventurers... well, the conspiracy theorist in me wants to spin a story from that.>Thanks for confirming yourself as one of those elfhater faggotsMan, I was just reacting to you thinking I hate elves because I wanted to throw in a kink into their traditional backstory. I don't hate elves, no need for you to start kowtowing to them.
>>31421790>I got the sense that people were only adding in the idea of druid orgies because that's what they'd personally want to experience.Frankly, I just though a long term insular community would be more interesting than HURR, DEY FUK DEM TO DETH>wanting to have elves NOT be generically on the brink of extinction yet again for once means I am kowtowing to themYou just cant keep your elf hateboner down for a second can you?
>>31421891I've been shooting out ideas about the dryads ever since the first posts about dryads pollinating. I think it's an interesting idea, and I've enjoyed having anons work out solutions such as nomadic or druidic responses. If I'm ignoring the thread's canon about druids, it's because that led to a dead end discussion wise. I just wanted to see what happened when interdependence doesn't go off without a hitch.But yeah, I do see the point about elves being on the brink of extinction as being boring.
druid alternative reproduction is already available from exalted.shapeshifters => Beastmen
>>31385223Actually it probably wouldn't exist. No sex act to fantasize about would probably mean no porn.
