It's time for an evolution game!How to play:• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species• Save as .PNG!• Post your new species in the thread with a description of what evolution you've added and whyNotes:• Unless stated explicitly, no species ever goes extinct. Old species can still evolve, even if they're not on the latest "chain"• Try to make your evolutions gradual and realistic• Have funSetting:• Currently only small organisms in the ocean.• You get to name the four starting critters. The Blue and yellow ones are herbivore, the red and purple ones are carnivore.• There are small plants in the ocean.
The red, wormlike predators are known as the kerps, and some of them have evolved thin, brushlike feelers that let them feel their way across the ocean floor, searching for food.
>>36744825More agile swimmers, the purple Pholls evolved longer and stronger primitive sails to better swim.
The Gromb Plants grow more phalanges to absorb more sunlight,
>>36745099This leads to the fenet, the main prey of the pholls, evolving additional fins, for more precise movements that help when escaping their pursuers.
>>36744825>>36745268Some Fenet, on the other hand, develop a patch on their head that is highly sensitive in order to better find areas of sunlight, where the plants gather.
An extra pair of pseudo-limbs evolved on the Sats, allowing them to better latch on to food sources.
>>36745099>phollswe must feed
>>36745362Some sats begin to gather in colonies, where they grab unto each others and move around using the currents.
>>36745268the Gromb grow thin sheets on there phalanges to gather even more sunlight
>>36745024Some of the Kerp's feelers turn into reproductive organs.
Instead of just crawling around on the ocean floor, the Tunnel Kerp's feelers have evolved into stronger tendrils, that it uses to burrow backwards into the mud. This helps it stay unnoticed while resting.
>>36745596Crap, captcha ate my pic.
>>36745422Smaller, less developed Sats hang around the main colony clusters, acting as distractions to potential predators.
>>36745683So are you just gonna accelerate the Sats until they invent space travel, or give the predators a chance to catch up, thus giving the Sats an actual reason to evolve?
>>36745723Next step is just electricity, calm down.
>>36745509>>36745344Being hunted, some gromb grow longer roots, reacting to differences in sunlight by creatures approaching from above by reactively retracting into the holes they grow in.
>>36745509Some Grob, floating at the surface of the water, have larger surface above it to catch sunlight and, in turn, are much bigger than any other organism so far, which also make them a much more nourishing food source.
>>36745099>>36745683In response, the Phol develop a blue carapace to better hide themselves against the aquatic enviroment.
the Gromb anchor themselves to the...>>36745752fuck
>>36745820cant even link a picture properly...
>>36745799I'm not sure anything has eyes, yet.
The kerp develop green tendrils that attract herbivors believing them to be plants.
>>36745344>>36745784Fenets gather around the large plants for easy feeding, which also attract predators...
>>36745855Kerps now have eye to have easier time with finding preyI hope this will be next moon evolution game
>>36745893...And to hide from the predators, they develop small burrowing claws, and carve out holes in the Gromb.
some Fenet attempt to blend in with the Grombs to hide from predators.
>>36745422>>36745893The phol develop basic pack hunting skills to attack Sat and Fennet colonies.
Secreting a goop, the Sats capture nearby bits of nutrients to further feed the colony.
To catch faster prey, the Kerp develop forward spring like phalanges that help thrust it up at prey
>>36746044The Kerp develop the ability to secrete a similar goo, attracting nearby Sats.
Awesome, and evo thread. I've been thinking of starting one, but you beat me to it.>>36745362Some Sats are born with a mutations leaving them with larger (jawless) mouths which extend halfway across their underside. The trait spreads, leading to a new species which eats algae and detritus by dragging its lower "lip" across the bottoms of tide pools and coastlines.Lip Sat.
Phols grow longer jaws to have easier time catching its prey
The gromb develop berries the grow more quickly into new grombs.
>>36746003The phols' back sails fuse into a tail, allowing them more powerful, directed movement.
>>36746095>>36746076And then these two crossbreed
The Fenet grow a hard beak both to make digging easier and to eat the Gromb berries.
Some burrowing Fenets attach to the smaller Grombs to sleep and feed>>36746173"Sempai noticed me~"
>>36746229They develop tail fins to be faster.
The Rooted Gromb begin growing taller to reach the surface.as they grow they require more phalanges to provide energy.
Sat colonies slowly got replace with slower and bigger sized sats who absorbed their colonies into themselves.These bigger sats, due to their size and the danger of traveling to seek food now hold on to Rooted Grombs and feed off of them.
>>36746392Now with more feelers to find prey.
>>36746574A group of Phols become parasitic, latching onto the larger Sats and slowly draining blood.
>>36746159Lip Sats develop a trait that gives them a photosensitive patch on their hump. With it, they are able to roughly see movement and light changes around them. When something moves around them, they skitter away as quickly as they can. While they can't move fast, this still allows more of them to escape predation by a small amount.
>>36746693 Threw this together real quick.
The root Gromb finally grows tall enough to reach the surface, its upper 'Branches' enlarge as the lower ones shrink into nothing,
Some fenet grob razor like barbs on their skin to discourage predators
>>36747659Development of pincers and a stinger to suck the body fluids.
>>36746466With being larger, some rooted grombs are caught in currents and washed up onshore. While only a few, some survive on the humid shorelines. Without having the benefit of buoyancy to hold them up, they cease to grow tall. Instead, the leaves of these Shore Grombs spread limply outwards across the ground.
>>36748424The Gromb that manage to remain firmly rooted begin basic electrolysis to create a floating platform to keep its leaves dry and increase energy production
>>36747502Some Gromb develop large pad like leaves that stabilize them as their upper portion floats on the surface.
>>36745911>I hope this will be next moon evolution gameOh hell no!
Some of the previously unevolved gromb's have adapted to recieving less sunlight due to other plants blocking it out. They in turn have taken on a lighter shade of green
>>36745911Some Kerps begin to specialize preying on Lip Sats. They dig into the ground and wait for a Sat to pass by. When one does, they spear it with the barbs on their tendrils and drag it into their powerful maw. Aside from the barbs, they look the same underground.
>>36748729some grombs begin using the extra hydrogen to make gas-sacs to spread there seeds further in storms.
>>36746753Lip Sats with longer wiggly bits can flee from predators onto land, though they can only stay out of water for short periods before they begin to dry out.
>>36746753Others find a different way to avoid predation. Their tail-end becomes flat and elongated. When spooked, they can dart out of danger. They're better at avoiding Phols and fin kerps than the ambush Kerps, as the nottotallynotbobbitworms hide in their blindspot.
>>36752089Due to the increased spread distance, air grombs end up being the first plants to find root on the surface.So far, being dependent on water, they can only survive along the shore line.
>>36748729this is an ocean. Have the gromb really grown to be three miles tall before getting eaten?
>>36746173Gromb with larger surface area to absorb light flourish
>>36752728I assume that a lot of this is in the shallow waters.
>>36752728We'll have to presume those are shoreline grombs. The ones in deeper parts float on the surface of the ocean and grow berries
>>36752728most primal plant life grew in the shallows where sun was abundant, not in the ocean depths,
>>36752681Shit, didn't notice the Shore Grombs. Disregard the "first plants to find root on the surface" bit
>>36752844Convergent evolution in action.
>>36747659Fenets with barbs sometimes grow extra bulk around the barbs, the fenets look bigger to predators and can survive harder hits.
>>36752997fucking pictures how do they work
>>36746252>>36746386Those of phols whose diet primarily consists digging fenets develop thicker and straighter jaws to reveal their prey easier
>>36748424Some shore grombs develop a layer on the topside of their leaves and center which lowers their loss of moisture on the surface. They begin to grow a bit further inland, where there is slightly less water around.As a side effect, their leaves stiffen up a bit from added hydraulic pressure in their cells against the cell walls. Those with the waxy coating completely overtake those without, as their leaves are able to hold themselves higher up.
>>36753024Not with captcha, I'll tell ya.
>>36752108Surface Lip Sats develop longer forelimbs to move quicker on land. Thus they can explore farther and eat more before drying out
>>36753024Phols develop spikey apendages on their jaws, and their ends become sharper in order to break through the bulky fenets. Their jaws can also open wider to make the whole process easier.
>>36753291>>36753086Still preyed upon by ever-improving phols, barbless fenets develop more complex photo-reactive patch that allows them to avoid danger before being seen
>>36747914>>36753282Some kerps develop an extra pair of limbs. Their tentacle/apendages become smaller and develop two firm ends, which he uses to swim/crawl towards the land.
You guys have fucked up this game hard. Most of this shit isn't even remotely realistic. Camaflouge was invented before fucking eyes were. How is that a pressure that sticks around between multiple generations, idiots? How do species get limbs so willy-nilly, and highly comple and maneuverable ones too?
>>36753484Seeing how they have exoskeletons, they should be able to stay on land longer.
>>36753500I'm sorry our MSpaint doodles aren't good enough for you, Internet stranger.
>>36753500Happens every time. Though I agree: the improvements here are often waaay too radical
>>36751212Comparatively primitive, Undergrombs improve. Their simple roots now grow into bulbs that become new small grombs and later separate.
>>36753484Kerps migrate to land. They can use their apendages to attract Sats while buried in the earth.
>>36746693>>36746574As a measure against parasitic phols, Fatsats develop thicker and smoother outer layer that is harder to latch on or pierce. It uses some of the plant matter sats feed on in unprocessed form which leads to a slight color change
>>36750484I tried to look it up but the archived thread pics are all errors. I really wanted to see how it got there
>>36754988suptg has the pics.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=evolution+moon
>>36754586Parasitic phols grow barbs on their sails for better grasp
>>36752754Smaller, harder berries start growing through the grombs' meat, and are eaten bey the phols, that will eventually defecate those and help spread the grombs
>>36755869meant fenet, not phol
The increase in Gromb species and the efforts of the Air-Grombs electrolysis has significantly increased the amount of oxygen in the air.This will allow the animals to grow larger and spread.
>>36752681The Air-Gromb begin releasing there cores (main electrolytic reaction area's) using the hydrogen sacs to find new areas to grow in, due to the lack of water on much of the surface this has had little effect on there population, except spreading it to some isolated lakes and some moist caves.
>>36747659Half digested gromb seeds lead to most fenet species defecating some kind of goo that floats to the surface, helping the grombs spread and sligthly blocking sunlight
>>36753282Surface lipsats' gooish coating hardens, reducing mobility but decreasing the loss of moisture, allowing for more exploration
>>36756082Upon exploration of the land there are several varietis of root vegetables and ferns. Sparse pine like trees are fairly common as well, but not dense enough to create a forest.
>>36755745>>36754586Fatsats grow progressively thicker and more globular. Their outer layers resemble plant matter more and more
>>36756149U w0t m8?
>>36755745A group of fatsats with eyes develop
>>36756199Might be a bit too far, don't you think? Or are these eyes photoreactive skin like in fenets and ?smaller sats
>>36756217I don't think it's too far.It would help them not get eaten and it's not like I turned them into nuclear dickhawks or something
>>36755869Seeds acumulate in the grombs and end up becoming more grombs inside their mother.As the offspring grows, the mother gromb breaks apart, helping spread the species
>>36756227Okay, let others judge.It's just that no one else on the planet has proper eyes yet and fatsats get them in one change
>>36756246Fatsat master race foolGlobs of slime will rule the world
>>36756246But they are like the eyes on fenets
>>36756280Eyed fenets went through two steps: >>36745344 >>36753453And they had a reason to evolve like that, it didn't happen just because
>>36756082One of Lipsats' inner cavities distends and is used for holding extra water
>>36753738They develop a thicker and better maneuverable shell on their apendeges.
>>36755973The Air-Grombs roots lengthen, rather than floating off and finding new areas to grow in, these Grombs instead hover above the water, their longer roots allowing them more distance. This protects them from most sea based predators since only the tips of the roots are in the water.
>>36756189There's potatoes and carrots and trees and shit.Reading comprehension. Learn to use it.
>>36756416And where did it spontaneously sprout from? Your mother?
>>36753453As well as barbs and eyes, Fenets develop undermounted railgun systems and the ability to transform into a tank as a means of defense.
anybody got a family tree yet?
Freaking great thread.
>>36756444you do understand that photosenstive spots are bacteria-tier shit, right?Like, I'm not that guy. I don't care about that being in or out. But that's like saying 'colony forming? ABSOLUTELY NOT!'
>>36753637A mutation in Undergrombs causes their bulbs to stay with the parent plant. Little by little, large-ish colonies form
>>36756280>>36756308>>36756444Those aren't eyes. As far as I see, no one has proper eyes yet. Except for eyesats (who would benefit from a retcon)
>>36756365Lipsats develop two moe cavities that, when filled with water, close the mouth, preventing the loss of moisture and allowing them to go through even greater distances
Is this gonna be a one off, or something like Primordial or Fortune?
>>36756523*two more cavities
>>36756523>moe cavitiesSo moe
>>36756524If you want to keep it going, there's no reason not to
>>36756497Are we going the same way the blob-colonies did?
>>36746252>>36745893Some Grombs begins to develop an outer layer capable of quick regeneration, creating a good food source for normal Fenets, but their tunneling cousins can find that after burrowing into the plant, the tough outer layer has regenerated, leaving the Fennet trapped inside of the Gromb.
>>36756431They're just food sources that aren't other animals. Chill bruh
>>36756497we colony now!
>>36756551People love blob colony creatures for some reason
>>36756569but they haven't evolved, brah. There aren't any of those things on the planet.
>>36756588because that's algae, and people know algae, and people love what they know.Also, it's just how plant evolution works.
>>36756412Kerps plantlike apendages become more sturdy with less nerve-endings. They are also coated with a weak poison that will get creatures stoned when they nible on the apendages. That way they can suck blood from the drugged creatures belly.
>>36756523it's a butt
>>36756588Anyone have the pictures from that one where the premise was everything was in the sky and things were light flying critters, and there was this one plant that became floating platforms, and would fuse together to become big sky islands.And there were these adorable blue fellas that became like grazing animals and lived on top of the colonies of floating plants
>>36756588You tell meI had plans for these fellas, they would grow blob tentacles that would become autonomous and move around as creatures, controlled by the great mass of neuronal blobs.It was like creating the Zerg fom scratch
>>36756635you can still do that, dingus. Do you even understand evolution? These things are strains, they can evolve in different directions. You dingus.Dingus, you.
>>36756557The regenerating grombs develop an acidic inner layer which they can dissolve and digest entombed Fenets with, not unlike any other carnivorous plant.
>>36756690My point was that colonies are fun as fuck, not that I can't do itIt won't be the same without he other species, like the one that processed the alcohol
>>36756608having this new poison, some Land-Kerps lose their butt weapon in favour of a tail they use for coordination and to dig themselves in deeper.
>>36756727oh, right.You're still a dingus though.Ya dingus.
>>36748424The overabundance of land grombs, caused by the lack of herbivore predators, forces taller grombs to appear
>>36753206Fatter grombs appear where rains are intermitent, and become capable of holding more water
>>36756608The feelers on the Kerp's tail become longer and more sensitive, gaining the ability to "taste" its prey through them.
>>36756412Some of the Land Kerp that didn't develop the poison begin to rely on a simpler niche, charging down prey and clasping onto them with their more powerful, and larger mandibles. Once within the Kerp's grasp the prey is shaken violently until its death.Relying less on their plant-like appendages these appendages have shrunk to allow room for their new larger mandibles.
>>36756749>>36756836are these different different evolutions or just different genders of the same creature?
>>36756833Some fatgrombs grow with a hole to their water cavity. This allows for capturing and using more water from rain, and for more leaves
>>36756871as the person who made the "male" version, lets make it gender
>>36756523>>36756884Lipsats, being dependant on water, develop digging paws on their front limbs. They use these to dig cannals and water reservoirs that serve as their nest, much like how ants dig tunnels. Most of these collonies still are conected to the ocean. They also tend to dig their collonies near fatgrombs, since the plant now serves as their primary food source and the extra water caught in these plats always come in handy.
>>36744825Oh hey an Evolution game, neat I haven't seen one of these since the Arigan game almost a year ago.Is anyone making any evolution charts yet?
>>36756925ofcourse I forgot the pick
>>36756871>>36756904As the creator of the previous stadium, I agree. So the females tend to provide more food because they are better at detecting prey, while the males dig holes for the larvae because they are better at it? Something like that?
>>36756884More leaves grow, helping channel the water towards the deposit
>>36752681>>36755973Land-dwelling Air Grombs keep crawling farther and farther from the shore. Their dependence on water is being satisfied by stronger thicker and longer roots. Large floating body slowly loses its function
>>36756523Non digging lipsats make watergrombs their new home, living away from the ocean and protected from predators.Those that eat away their homes end up dyinig, so Flolipsats evolve not to eat Watergrombs
>>36756961let's do that
>>36755745>>36756176Parasitic phols counter this evolutionary move by acquiring longer heads. In addition, their jaws become longer and fuse at the base creating a "straw"
>>36757037The watergrombs filter their water from the organic matter brought by the flolipsats (shit from eating grombs)This becomes another way of sustenance that helps them grow bigger.Some watergrombs grow a central stem with leaves, geting more sunlight, preventing water from evaporating and proteting flolipsats
>>36757037some Watergrombs develop sacks full of spermazoa, for Flolipsats to consume and excrete somewhere else - thus spreading the plan further
>>36747659some barbed fenet develop longer barbs to better protect them from phol's
>>36756925>>36756938Due to lipsats digging into watergrobs, watergrobs start growing a frail, but rapidly regenerating tissue that prevents water from going away from them and into the tunnels
>>36757078>>36756176Due to increasing use of semi-digested gromb matter, Fatsats' goop becomes mildly poisonous. It destroys their symbiosis with free primitive sats but helps against parasitic phols
>>36757106>>36757110waterpalms grow "berries" that fall into the water when mature, for the lipsats to eat
Air-Grombs exchange their Roots for a rudimentary filter system, allowing them to consume dust from the air and collect rain water for electrolysis.
>>36756938>>36756871is that size-accurate?
>>36756988>>36756938Digsats often make an underground nest under the land-dwelling Air Grombs. This offers the Grombs more water suplied to it's roots, but the Digsats will use it's roots to lay their eggs in and serve for food for the young. >>36757232The underwater holes dug by the Digsats now form connections between different kinds of Grombs.
>>36757229these fenet grow the primitive muscles to pull the spines closer to their bodies making them more streamlined
>>36757278Yeah, that's good. Female Kerps are now able to mimic different kinds of feromones to attract different kind of prey. They tend to change it up so that prey won't be conditionned to avoid one kind of feromone.
>>36757277>>36757297>>36756414are these all the same type of Gromb but at different points in its life cycle? because if so that's awesome, Begin life as a coast dwelling plant, making hydrogen from water and filling the gas-sac, once enough is made it's top flies off and spreads seeds along its flight, and if it lands on water it grows longer roots to refill its gas bladder?its a good way to keep itself from being eaten.
>>36756815The increased strain from growing taller, as well as the issue of herbivore overpopulation, causes the tall grombs to grow a tough, smooth 'skin'
>>36757342we need an evolutionary tree to know what is a distinct species and what isnt
>>36757342i like it, maybe the Digsats latch on to the Airgrombs to travel between bodies of water, FIRST PUBLIC TRANSPORT!
>>36756749males of the species lost a lot of the size of their plantlike apendeges, and those mkost of their poisonous potential, since nest care has been introduced, and being less easily spotted and less dangerous to the larvae is evolutionary more important than being an efficient hunter. This means, however, that males often only survive one batch of children, and starve while taking care of them.
>>36753024>>36753291Tough Fenet slowly evolve to be larger. At this size they're a little too scary for Phols to attack. As a side effect, the increase in size causes their burrowing to become harder to pull off and many are forced to become berry-eaters
>>36757392Good guy male Kerp.
Gromb-Air gas pods begin dropping seeds as they fly, the seeds smell delicious to DigSats so they will consume them and poop them out near there water-burrows.we need something to happen to drive more evolution, anyone got a suggestion? asteroid strikes and raises the temperature lowing sea levels? ice age freezes water surfaces?
>>36756497>>36756578To improve their chances in the face of hungry hungry Fenets and Sats, Undergromb colonies develop a seed in the root connecting two mature plants. When either is eaten, the seed is released into the ocean
>>36757451I think we've got evolution plenty. Perhaps we could work out different variations of the same creature some more. Like what makes the Digsat more different from the Flolipsat? We could also find a way to connect the sea-dwellers more to the land-dwellers.
>>36757451As a suggestion: A big-ass volcano erupts in the ocean, releasing some vile volcanic stuff into the water?But I actually agree with >>36757494
>>36757517It would help if someone could list the evolutionary tree and sums up the status of different variations.I'll be honest, I would be happy to do it if I didn't have any work that I should get started on instead of keeping myself busy with imaginary creatures.
>>36757305barbed fenet become more streamlined and slightly bitter tasting, this is indicated by their darkening hue
>>36756864The Large Mandible Kerp continue to specialize in overpowering their prey with large powerful jaws. Their plant-like appendages have shrunk to allow them to sprint faster without hurting themselves.
>>36757591The Large Mandible Kerp develops camoflage.
>>36757297>>36757342>>36757451Young Digsats will often not hatch before the Gromb takes of into the air. With their paws, the young creatures will hold on to the slimy resedue of their eggs untill the Gromb starts releasing seeds. Only few of the young Digsats will make it that far, but if they survive the fall (they are small so it doesn't hurt them much), land near water and foodsources and survive hostile creatures, they will form a new colony. They will feast on the seeds or newly sprouted Grombs and dig holes in orde to keep themselves safe.
>>36757346>>36756523Lipsats feeding on Tall Grombs undergo a change. Their water sacs merge, allowing them to open and firmly close the mouth at any moment. They use it to climb rocks and Tall Grombs (poorly)
>>36757644And forgot picture
Been doing a thing since >>36757346
>>36757671Someone start adding >>36757591, >>36757493 and >>36757255, or whatever else we have
>>36757671That is really effin' cool
>>36757671that's great shit.Now do an evolutionary tree
>>36749710Some Flat Grombs develop fruit bodies (seed pods really) dangling in the water ripe for eating by Fenets
>>36757614>Instead of camouflage and ambush, focusses on speed.>Loses camouflage-appendages in order to move faster. >Gains camouflage.Where is this one going?
>>36757769It just got a new coat of colour. It's not gonna be super sneaky, just getting an advantage without losing anything.
Boom, the planet mysteriously begins to cool down, water levels begin to lower?
>>36757810maybe a bit early, anon, but good idea. So I vote no, but with a maybe later.
>>36746386>>36757567To deal with faster prey, Phols develop additional muscle on their sails
>>36757816>>36757810Maybe start the gradual lowering now. Let's say 1cm of drop per year?
>>36757567the stickleback fenet's webbing becomes more pronounced and it's burrowing claw moves around to act as lower jaw
>>36757929I'm pretty sure the pink stuff was supposed to be muscle
The Gromb Air pods begin shrinking, while the gas bladders expand, allowing for higher altitudes, the pods now float just within the lower cloud layer, absorbing the moisture when drifting through clouds and Sunlight when they are outside the clouds.
>>36757845Their tail is getting longer, making it easier to make quick turns. They sometimes slither inside Digsats tunnels in order to get some blue meat.
>>36757921Yeah. Besides, environmental changes bring about interesting evolutionary changes.
>>36757971Young Digsats sometimes live longer up in the air now. They have to live from the plant fiber, the water from the clouds actually keeps them hydrated enough to survive. They now either have to wait untill the Gromb loses altitude for some reason to jump down or hope they land in water in order not to be crushed.
>>36757614Continuing it'd defenses, some Kerp begin to develop thicker armor plating with a bark like texture appearance
>>36758133Does that mean it undergoes molting?
>>36757921>per yearbut anon, that's not how the evolutionary scale works unless you're wanting a fast change
>>36758098To better survive low temperatures, some Digsats develop an additional immature form with thicker skin and very low metabolism, When subjected to normal surface temperatures, they grow into an active immature form
>>36758133Who preys on it to defend against?
>>36758169Oh derp, 1mm per year then?

I've gone ahead and made an evolutionary tree for the Kerps. All the names are placeholders that reflected their descriptions, as I'm not sure what you'd like your creatures to be called. Let me know what you'd like renamed and I'll change it for you, and also let me know if I missed anything.I'll try to start some of the other trees, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish it before I go to bed.
>>36758241Forgot the damn image.
>>36758215You mean the poisonous creatures who spend most of their time underground? Wouldn't it make MUCH MORE sense if they prey on Digsats and Flolipsats? Or are they actually preying on other Large Mandible Kerp?
>>36758183>>36758283Sorry, read that wrong, I though the question was what the Kerp huntsinstead of what hunts the Kerp.
>>36758245awesome dude. Kerp rock.
>>36758000some Fenet adopt a more fishlike body plan
>>36757401Flatfish Fenets spend most of their time at the surface, eating Gromb berries. Due to this, most of their barbs move towards the belly and digging appendages shrink not meeting much use
>>36747914Meanwhile back in the ocean, the kerp that stayed behind's primary feelers have evolved a secondary purpose as claws to instantly grab onto any prey they touch
>>36758133one subspecies of armor Kerp develop scissor like mandibles, with their vestigial tendrils converting into venom sacks
>>36758483The Sea Kerp's back legs merge into fins to help the Kerp swim faster.
>>36758348>>36758000To chase their prey, Phols cut some weight in carapace department and become somewhat sleeker
>>36758560To chase the increasing difficult to catch sea life, the sea kerp become longer slender and their hue changes slightly
>>36758256>>36758241In response to developing nerve nests, the preggombs develop limber roots to push rival gombs away and propel themselves aimlessly across the surface of the water.
>>36753291snapper phols develop a more durable jaw at the cost of some body armot
>>36758678Woops rigid* not limber. My bad, English isn't my first language.
>>36758241>>36758256>>36758678It should be noted that >>36756236 are just >>36755869, but in a later stage of life
>>36758785I figured everyone knew that I was using the matured version of the species instead of the younger one.
So, I guess your changes apply to both stages, right?
>>36758678>>36758437To keep eating berries from a moving tree, Flatfish develops hooks from its rudimentary frontal appendages. They provide some additional impulse to Preggombs if the direction they're facing matches the direction of the plant, but mostly they just hang on.Due to decreased usage, their back sails shrink.
>>36753500The premise of this game was a pretty fun academic exercise, but yeah I completely lost interest really early in this thread when it devolved into "le rule of cool".
>>36757656>>36757346Lipsats Grow in size in order to eat larger Grombs. They gain sturdy yet slow appendages.
>>36758995Instead of coming back and bitch about it, why not take matters in your own hands or let the game be played by those who enjoy playing it like this?
>>36759044I just got here then saw wasted potential. What's with your narration of what I didn't do?
>>36758645some of the sea kerp begin to anchor themselves to the sea bed with their tail fin as an alternative to chasing pray. they wait very still until something to eat floats close enough. at which point it will use very fast reflexes to catch whatever it is
>>36759105This being an anonymous imageboard, there's always some blatant rule of coolery in evothreads. Though I fairly sure it's not prevalent in this one, especially by this point.
By smacking their rigid limbs together, preggombs individually learned to use echolocation by sensing the vibrations in the water. After finding one another and staying at a comfortable distance apart, flatfish begin moving from preggomb to preggomb covered in sticky gomb sex cells, thus widening the gomb genepool. Because of this, preggombs with a more central nervous system are better at finding and mating with other gombs.
>>36758245bitchin>>36759105>wasted potential>not differently realized
>>36759288stated in the post you replied to.
>>36759111one species of sea Kerp becomes adapted for life in the open oceans, trading it's pincers and mandibles for a pair of barbed hooks, this is the Harpoon Kerp
>>36759438>evolution>not resembling evolution beyond an 8 year old's understanding
>>36759557>greentexting>just saying things
>>36758578the fenish develop a silver coating and start to move in shoals, developing their eye-spots so that they can see colour
>>36758904grasping Fenets develop sharper claws to hold on to food more easily
>>36759557So at 8 years old you could understand evolution beyond the point of different organisms adapting to one another and their enviroment? And what did you expect from this thread? That we would list up every possible mutation of a certain stadium and calculate which have the largest chance of reproduction by calculating the amount of molecules that are necessary to sustain each individual organ and the abbundance of them in the current enviroment?You must be a blast at scifi campaigns.
>>36752569The primitive hips of the aquatic leg sat shift in position, causing their legs to cover their large mouths. This reduces the drag while swimming from having limbs hanging out, as well from their lower lip. When feeding, they spread their legs to the side, and use their front-limbs to drag themselves across the seafloor.Their proto-eyes also improve slightly. Not quite able to make out shapes yet, they can determine the direction of light and movement.Leg-Jaw.
>>36759855>changing colour to evade predators without eyes>additional limbs appearing just becauseI watched The Magic Schoolbus when I was 8 years old, I even knew this sort of stuff wasn't legit back then.
>>36758133another subspecies has developed the ability to spit a highly noxious chemical compound at it's prey
>>36759910What's done is done. All that can be done is hope people remember this and avoid such mistakes in the future. And sometimes people just make assumptions on things like sight being around already.
when this thread reaches bump limit can someone start another, I would But every other thread I've made has sunk
>>36757493The undergromb develop hardened carapaces to help protect from fenets, sats, and other marine grazers. They begin a steady development of their root systems. Evolving to be both highly propagative and tuberous to help them survive and flourish on the ocean floor. The undergromb quickly spread due to the lack of competition down here in the depths
>>36760170Well, that was a sudden transformation...And you're not even a tripfag
>>36760145You don't need to bump after one minute. We've probably got another hour or so until the limit is hit.Time to see what I can do for Pholls and fenets.
>>36759788I'm pretty sure phols don't care due to, y'know, not being able to see
Tried to do the grobs chartI was trying a global chart, with all the species there. Fuck that, seriously. Fuck that
>>36760020>>36758548I don't see what these guys are hunting, or why they need their aggressive weapons and speed. >>36758170Digsats live mostly underground or hidden in plants unless they are taken away by floating Grobs.>>36757110Flolipsats live in plants, where they are easy prey. >>36759023Bigsats are large but slow. It seems like slowing them down with poison and then sucking their blood is a way better strategy. See:>>36757336
Any idea of what to title this for the archive? The usual way to go about it is with the planet's name, but we lack one of those.
>>36760336u r gud
>>36760562Moon evolution v2
>>36760594seconded. Also, I think we should perhaps do a vote for extinction before we start the next thread. A lot of evolutions can not sustain themselves in our current world, so I say we should classify them as failed evolutionary lines.
Hey whats going on in this thread
I hope this gets a second thread.
and we are at image limit
This one is going one but I had an idea based on a thread we had earlier, about a place where the dirt was just sugar. And they had like molasses lake and stuff, but then we realized, that only species that could grow there without magic bullshit would be like mold that grows over sugar, types of fungus and something like a "meat tree"
>>36760928Why is the image limit so damn low on this board?
>>36760562Why does this need to be on the archive? What does it lend to the /tg/ community two years from now?
>>36760880Give me a bit.
>>36761109Board historyCuriosityUsing it as inspiration to make their ownusing it as inspiration to continue to game, or make their own evolutionsPopulate their settings with the creatures
>>36756727Man, I loved working on those little drunks. Speaking of, a quick look didn't show any decomposers yet, did I miss something?
>>36760755And Shogun Glund takes the final pic.>>36747659http://i.imgur.com/kvYwlSX.pngThe bottom fin of the remaining old barbed fenet splits into two, stabilizing its swimming.
>>36761167Seems pretty self-congratulatory. They're in the auto-archive. sup/tg/ is for historic and memorable things. Solid gold threads. (And, unfortunately, quest threads. Because Licorice is a prancing hyperfaggot.) All of those things you desperately hope will happen (and, by the way, won't) can happen just fine with the automatic archive. It's not like this is the first ever evo thread. It's not even a particularly consistent or successful one.
>>36761273it's so we have the pictures. Autoarchive doesn't save the pics, and we need em if we want to start a new thread.
>>36761273Evolution threads are still far better than any quest thread.Those fags just need to fuck off somewhere else.
>>36761301Autoarchive saves the thumbnails. Mona Lisa, these scribbles are not. The thumbnail is more than good enough.
>>36761273the auto-archive deletes the pictures after a while.
>>36761324oh you think so?well then we ought to too, don't we? Or are you just arguing a point that you don't have now?
here is the new thread >>36761184
>>36761427I feel terrible that you believe this was a coherent sentence. I think I might have been arguing with someone that has cerebral palsy or something.
