Welcome back to Cell Evolution Quest last time you were here you decided to deal with some pesky microscopic mosquitos! The whole thing went better than expected but you still have a small problem. There is a shortage of floaty things in the area and you must now hunt the wiggle things. 1. Try to find an area with more floaty things2. Float about and try to lure prey towards you3. other- find your own solutionRoll 1d100Last threadhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/44996279/
1. Try to find an area with more floaty things
>>45014640Opps forgot to to add my nameI saw this before though in the archives so decided to join in
what evolutions do we have?
>>45014793Cell statsAttack 2 Defense 2 Utility 3 Speed 1Cell parts mouth, flagella, light spot, cilia, Advanced osmosis, Pheromones( attack, lure, poison), silica lining, jaws
no poison skin?
>>45014903Pheromones Poison its in your cell membrane
can we use two pheromones at once? otherwise >send out lure first then poison
>>450145382. Float about and try to lure prey towards youCarnivorous way.

Time for some seduction as you and your posse begin to secrete pheromones to attract prey too you pickings are slim and the few that you manage to lure are cautious of you. It doesn't save them from your fellows that attack from there blind spots. Taking turns you all manage to eat your fill.Roll 1d100 for survival

>>45015476HOTDAMNLet's bundle those proteins to form porous plates so as to allow transfer of cytosol contents.

Rolled 87 (1d100)>>45015573Well since I have a jumpstart on multicellularity and intercellular transport, let's start boosting photosynthesis efficiency.
>>45015556>Chloroplasts absorption- because you are what you eat
i don't know if any of you were here for the last thread would you like me to give a brief overview of the rules again?
>>45015701Sure.Is this like EVO, where there's an active ecosystem of organisms, or are we crowdsourcing one lineage of cells?
>>45015556At least 3 more flagellas>>45015701Yes please
>>450155562 or 3 points in light spot.
>>45015723you guys are in control of one cell and its evolution I mostly make and deal with the other things you see but if you have ideas for other cells or creatures go ahead and post them.The Quest has two parts the evolution stage where you spend your evo points to add, make, or improve parts. Those parts give you stats but the stats aren't something you have to pay much mind too. The next stage is the Quest stage where I roll a 1d10 to determine what happens, at the end you roll for survival. depending on how well you rolled and how well you did in the quest gives you successes which are used as Evolution points for the Evolution phase. Anything you would like me to elaborate on
>>45015861Oh. I figured this would be more EVO-style where the thread actively directs the evolution of a number of organisms who compete and interact.This here's a little less my style. Think I'll drop out.
>>45015924sorry evolution here is more dictated by environmental pressures and how your cell changes
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>45015556there are still 3 more evolution points if you guys want to spend them?
>>450160243 points in Silica secretions- sounds gross but very usefulWho else is there in this thread?
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>45016064I just got here.
>>45016024You swiftly move after your prey wiggling madly after the small moat, it's fast faster than you but you're able to track it with your light spots. The chase is short and ends with a full belly. There is one small problem you've noticed your numbers have dwindled with is strange you're pretty sure you the biggest cell in the tide pool nothing could really threaten you right? What do you want to do?1. Try and find where everyone's gone2. Hunt you're sure it's no big deal 3. Float around filter feed4. Make a something out of Silica (what)5. Other- any plans
>>45016207>Try and find where everyone's gone
>>45016064What are you looking for i'm fine with adding to this but it is kinda dependent on your guys ideas
Look for everyone else
>>45016207>>Try and find where everyone's gone
>>45016207You've never felt so along well that’s not true you just didn't know you were lonely before. Of course you aren't entirely alone the Darting things as always float around you using you for protection. You fallow pheromone trails looking for others but the use of pheromones have become increasingly common and you aren't entirely sure why as you travel you notice the occasional burst of energy that singles the grey globs but instead they come from some wiggle things. The most interesting ting you see is a large mass of carbon small cells move with in it there flagella moving the mas forward any cracks that the carbon nest suffers is quickly fixed by the small cells. You still haven't found others of your spices what do you do?1. Continue on2. Investigate the carbon nest3. Make something with silica (what)4. Other- any ideas?
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>45016920>2. Investigate the carbon nest
>>45016920>Investigate the carbon nest
>>45016920Your curiosity causes you to moves towards the small mass of carbon as you do you see the flagella pull in to the nest as it starts to vibrate. Suddenly one of your light spots is blinded as a barrage of carbon spears are fired by the cells in side the nest there's a small pause as the cells in side reorient them selves the nest vibrates again as the flagella reemerge and it starts to move rapidly away.1. Chase it2. Live and let live3. Find your others 4. What was that shadow?5. Other- any ideasRoll 1d100
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>45017526>4. What was that shadow?
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>45017526>What was that shadow?
Rolled 12 (1d100)>what was the shadow?
>>45017526That’s no shadow is the only thought you have as the massive beast moves past. You can't even take in the entirety of the creature its flagella are wider than you are long and move faster than you could hope to dream. The wake of its movement sends you hurtling, mass amounts of debris is torn from the ground as it searches for food. One of its flagella hits the carbon nest and in an instant it moves even faster as its whole body pulses. You're thrown far as its form descends on the nest. The cells within cower at its center, this offers no protection against the god as its straw like mouth descends on the nest with a single motion the helpless cells are sucked into the beast's stomach. Discarding the now empty nest it continues on its path.roll 1d100 for survival

>>45019159Besides the loss of evolution points it changes the table, instead of being a relevant creature. You get left behind. For now think of sharks or snacks trillions of years spent as the same thing no innovation. In game terms it changes the 1d10 table I roll on.
>>45019328the first stage of life. Creatures alive at his time were soft slow and had only simple nervous systems to keep them together while you missed out on making the jump from simple cell to simple animal you did make an important contribution to life's development namely communication while on earth the first major evolutionary explosion was caused by the development of eyes here it was communication that drives competition.Three styles of communication have evolved so far.1.Pheromone communication- Stinky things- Shut up were pretty!!2.Bio Electric impulse- Grey globs3.Motion/vibration communication- Darting things
do you guys want to call it a night I know its getting pretty late?
>>45019784I'm good to keep going, I am just at work at the moment so my attendance is pretty spotty. I leave it up to you
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>45020039ok let's go through one more quest so we can end it as a simple life form
>>45020084Ready when you are captain
The world has changed in more ways than one were once befor you moved with pride and certainty as the strongest cell in the tide pool you are now but an ant among gods. The massive forms of the filter feeders envelope the land and have not been kind to your numbers you're on the edge of extinction but this is not the change you meant. You meant the world has changed literally the world has, well what you think of the world, changed all the creatures that you knew are gone replaced by others. The once spacious floor of the tide pool as been replaced with the cramped and confusing maze of the kelp forest well that's what your calling the huge interwoven mass of floaty things. the number of filter feeders are few but who knows what creatures stalk in the reeds?1. Explore you new home2. feed on the floating things you have jaws that's what they're there for.3. Hunt you will reclaim your lost honor4. Other- any plans?
>>45020437>Explore you new homeLet's get an understanding of the environment first this time
>>45020437>Explore you new home
>>45020437As you begin to explore your new home you come to the realization that it's dark. Your simple light spots while able to tell where light is doesn't help you here in the perpetual dusk of the reeds. Worse yet the once strong currents that once added you in moving are gone the world is still, constrictive, and ominous it drives home the fact that you are alone in a strange and alien place. How do you proced ?1. Cautiously- this place is strange take your time. 2. Boldly - you are great you have nothing to fear in this place.3. Time to find food4. Other- what are your plans?what ever you're choice roll 1d100
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>45020948>Other- what are your plans?Remember when those little wigglers were parasitising us? We should improve our mobility and do the same now that we're no longer the biggest thing in the pool.
>>45021487fortunately you rolled changed environment so the Darting things aren't here anymore
>>45020948In the dim light of the forest you look around trying to find the ever pesky Darting things. Only to find them missing this does nothing to help you, but you do have some sense of relief knowing that the annoying things aren't around any more. Not to long after you come to the conclusion that the forest isn't as populated as you feared. that or its much easier to hid in the reeds than you thought. The few wiggle things that you see aren't much more advanced than you but that doesn't mean that you have it easy as finding prey in this dark place is difficult and the lack of light makes using your chloroplast difficult. you need to find food what do you do?1. Hunt the wiggle things- tried and true2. float around and lure prey- the classic 3. Find a brighter area to photosynthesise4. Try nibbling the reeds- that's what the jaws are for.5.Other- whats your strategy?
>>45022178>4. Try nibbling the reeds- that's what the jaws are for.while>3. Find a brighter area to photosynthesise
>>45021487>>45021737>>45022178I was meaning we should parisitise the big thingsAnyway I vote >4. Try nibbling the reeds- that's what the jaws are for.
>>45022178you try nibbling at the reeds there are strong cells with thick membranes in covering them but once you peel a few away your able to eat the softer cells within it a pretty easy feast all things considered. The only alarming thing that happened was a cell that jumped away from you it seems that some of the wiggle things in this area try and pretend to be part of the reeds your not sure why.roll 1d100 for survival
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>45022441We need find and or make some friends, we've got pheromones and light sensors we should be hunting in packs.
>>45022532You do have pack hunting to a degree, your species failure at surviving last turn made finding more of your species difficult.
