It's been a while. Let's have an evogame. For those who don't know what that is, the rules are simple.• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species. Please use pencil or binary tools.• Save as .PNG!• Post your new species in the thread with a description of the change you've made.• Adding size increments or new names is optional, but would be appreciated.This game is taking place in the ocean waters surrounding a small chain of volcanic islands. Now lets get onto the starting species.First up, the Neoro. This fish-like creature is an omnivore. They typically feed on plants and algae, but will opportunistically go after larvae and other smaller organisms. The nubs alongside its head are external gills, like those of salamander larvae.More to come.
>>46237752Now the Bulbous Flouz. It is a major predator in the region. This hermaphroditic species is semi-social, and communicate via light pulses from the red patches. Despite appearances, they are amphibious; living on land and hunting in the sea.They're blocked off in the picture, but it has four eyes.
>>46237771Next up is the Kerub. This herbivorous species is like a soft-shelled crab without pincers. This aquatic creature can survive short journeys onto dry land.
>>46237789And the Foldworem. They are highly mobile muck-feeders, capable of crawling in any contorted position it can find itself in, as well as swimming by undulating its body. They sense the world through their two long feelers and the row of simple eyes running along their backs. They live on both dry land and in the sea.
>>46237801And our last animal, the Roo. This polyp is a filter feeder that grows a mineralized casing around itself. The casing extends into a long, hollow tube throughout the Roo's life.Picture illustrates the polyp inside of the tube.Next up are plants.
>>46237824First plant is Hrass. This simple, blueish, grass-like plant is the only fully land-based organism around.
>>46237844And last of all, the Aqueola. This plant reproduces asexually, releasing seeds that are clones of itself (aside from mutations). More peculiar than that is how is mobile. They scuttle along the shallow waters, seeking sunlight and trying to dodge predators (a.k.a. herbivores).
these are some cool creatures, op, let's do this>>46237789the smooth kerub is found in secluded communities, without many predators. the smooth shell is a purely aesthetic trait, which is found attractive by females in those colonies. it is not a separate species
>>46238314forgot the pic
>>46237752get thruster, allows the neoro to escape predators at a very high velocity
>>46238338Off to a good start.Funny fact: It almost started like that. The bumps were a last-second addition.
>>46237844A branch of Hrass grows horizontally expansive roots, pushing others away and monopolizing area resources>>46238423don't be a dink
>>46238481The leaves grow wider to gather more energy for sun.
>>46238710The number of leaves grows
>>46237752Vampire fangs, to look totally sickassOkay, really it develops more pronounced canines to enhance it carnivoracity.
>>46238837In order to store now surplus resources, the core root thickens.Man I'm okay with plants getting a head-start but where IS everyone else?
as it feeds more its inside grows bigger, and the calcium shell grows bigger
>>46238914>where IS everyone else?Asleep, probably. I already had a turn so I'm just waiting for someone else on my organism.I usually try to participate in these threads, but sometimes it's hard to contribute anything because I'm inept at drawing lol
>>46238914One a plant's roots reach a certain distance from the main plant they develop a new core root and leaves.
>>46238964You now you can keep it up on the same organism, right?If someone else takes it, it's technically a new branch of the species.At least, that's how it worked back when these threads started years ago?
>>46238941as it grows bigger the shell becomes too heavy for drifting and it stays on the ground as a bottom feeder
>>46238338The male cave kerub develops blue coloration on its shell to help attract females.
>>46239100some of Roo's tentacles were much stronger and improved the sized of their tentacles as their shell grew larger, creating a paddle like attachment that they use to flap at their sides for a better boost in speed.because of its sideways flapping movement, most of it's offspring's tentacles moved sideways accomodating a bigger opening in the middle for a wide gap as it's mouth, enabling it to feed on (relatively) bigger creatures
>>46238906Now that the Neoro is an active carnivore, it develops a light blue stomach to camouflage itself from prey underneath.
>>46239117The blue on the male cave kerub's shell becomes more vibrant
>>46239350Bumps reemerge on the kerub's shell, they are smaller this time and create a glittering effect in the light.
>>46237872The evolutionary advances should be self explanatory
>>46239676it starts to teach small fishes in its community
>>46239008*onceTough roots begin to spread above ground. They move over areas of stone, seeking patches of viable earth.
>>46237801Ocean-venturing Foldworem are frequently eaten by carnivorous Neoro fish and Bulbous Flouz.However, the Mimic Foldworem has imitated the stealthy coloration of the Neoro. Being mistaken for a Neoro can sometimes allow them to escape being seafood.
>>46239100The seafloor based roo found itself on an iron rich seafloor, using it as its mineral shield, it has managed to create a sturdier shell of iron, it has also found small changes in its inner muscles but no notable change has been seen yet
>>46239100big roobecause of multiple budding reporduction, the roos has became a sizable colony of roos combining their mineral deposit shells to create a bigger shell, with a bigger amount of Roos they have more tentacles to capture prey and a sturdier shell
>>46239286Neoro develops a dorsal fin to improve stability as it hunts
>>46240774Neuro's side fins triple, resulting in improved maneuverability.
>>46241225Neuro develops elongated skull more suited to hunting and devouring both larger and smaller prey.
>>46237824Some other roo begin to cluster together. By doing this, their shells leaning against one another hold them upright, making it easier to access food and mates.
>>46238906Facing increased presssure from more sophisticated predatory neuros, some fanged neuro begin to specialise in ambush predation.Natural selection makes the group develop more fangs to more easily hold on to prey.
>>46239709As Hrass starts to thickly cover the ground it is forced to compete with itself for sunlight and grows taller.
>>46237801When Roo dies only thing left behind is the mineralized shell. These shells are exelent shelters for foldworems to live in and imitate Roo to avoid hunters. Only negative thing is that the shell covers most of the worems eyes so the use of feelers is increased.
>>46241729Facing predation from other Nero , the Nero with elongated snouts develop longer more agile bodes for easier escaping and hunting.
>>46239709Some above ground roots have started to become more like the core shaft and have begun to grow leaves. These hrass can use these leaves to gather more sunlight from wider area.
>>46237789After generations of contemplating the darkness within its shell the helkreub begins to manifest the blackness of its own soul upon the mortal trappings of it's flesh.Actually It has just become a slightly more aggressive Kreub with a harder, spikier shell to deter predators. This Kreub has been known to eat young kreub spawn at opportunity as an easy source of protein.
>>46240480The Roo has managed to create electric organs within its body with stacked electrolytes making it capable of realeasing minute volumes of electricity, but with the combination of its iron shell and the saltwater around it, it manages to create a small and weak electro field around it capable of stunning even neoro's while its tentacles grab its prey and dragged down to be eaten
>>46240659aqueolas have found their way to the big roos and settle down it as it's habitation. the mineral rich shell of the Roo enables the Aquelo to live well, as well as being protected by the Roo's sharp shell from possible predators. interestingly Foldeworms has also taken notice of these and have started using Big Roo's as their shelter
>>46237872Aquola develops tiny barbs on it's roots, improving it's grip and allowing it to live in fast streams.
>>46237872they have started to imitate the terryfying (they freaking are) flous to deter predators from simply nipping on them
>>46242702Aquola develops slightly thicker skin allowing it to retain moisture and expand onto land.
>>46242726Moisture-loving Umidola grows spore dispersers to spread itself over dry land.
>>46242316The helkreub evolves extended legs for faster movement. These legs develop spikes for extra defence.
Due to the increased development of aquatic predators, the Flooz develops a set of hind tentacles to move more efficiently on land, and it's population swells on landmasses flourishing with Hrass and Umidola..
>>46242316Compelled by its dark urges helkreub descends from the shelf into the abyss below, where it feasts on the dead as well as it's own kin. It also develops bioluminescence to attract potential mate/meal.
The more inland populations of Flouz specialize themselves to their new herbivorous lifestyle, their rear set primitive eyes migrate forwards to help them generate a more sophisticated terrain they must navigate. The reduced amount of water in their diet contributes to their increasingly efficient anatomy. A surplus of high growing grass affords them shorter manipulators for feeding. Their phosphorescent organs are selectively enlarged to make themselves more available as mates.
>>46242907The helkreub begins to adapt his body for quicker movement. This include putting the spikes in a saw-like patern to help get traction and to attack it's foes.
>>46239561Pushed away by the dangerous and/or predatory helkrabs, roos and neoros, the glittery kerubs have been pushed to the land, taking cover under the conveniently blue hrass
Some helkreubs begin using their saw-edged front arms to saw through the thin shells of young roos.As a result, natural selection favours roos with small spines on their shells which, while not very harmful to attackers, make it more difficult to saw through the shell and give the roo more time to struggle to escape.
>>46242316Due to its extra teeth, the ambush neuro is more well-adapted than other predators to prey on the helkreub and natural selection favours ambush neuros equipped with strong jaw muscles for crushing the shells of kreubs.
>>46241853Tallhrass has become taller and sturdier.
You guys have an evolution tree?
>>46239709Being under threat from herbivorous Flouz some Hrass has developed stinging cells that release powerful and painful poison on touch.
>>46241869This branch of Neros become more sleek, but still retains its power and fierceness
>>46243499>>46244047glittering kerubs develop a sting resistant shell and begin to spend much of their time around stinging hrass for protection.
>>46244120I like that idea, but I didn't think there were predators on land yet.
>>46244150The Flouzies are predators that live on the land too.
>>46243735True to their ambush tactics, some of these neuros even started to flattens their whole physiology and retain a rugged appearance to blend themselves to rocks
>>46239561A subspecies of Kerubs grow chitinous claws that they use to attach themselves to terrain and/or fauna as this subspecies habitat is often rocked by strong currents.
>>46243848OP here. Not yet. If I wasn't just on lunch break, I'd whip some up. At least the generation number can help to track the order of things.>>46244150Gen 0 flouz is a predator than can be found on land. Gen 1, although turning herbivorous, could possibly be one as well.
>>46244454The gen number is a smart little addition by the way, well done OP. I'm looking forward to this, if I have time I'll jump in as well!
>>46244525Thanks, but it wasn't my idea. It's something borrowed from Fortune Evo a couple years back.
>>46243167The bottom of the sea proves to be bountiful, prompting the helkreubs to change in more than color. Its body flattens due to constant pressure and its bioluminessence bumps become more prominent and flamboyant, which now also secretes small amount of chemicals to communicate. This development, added with constant darkness, changes the creatures eyes heavily. A separate branch of its eye muscles now helps the creature feeds, while it main stalk who holds the weakening eye now become bulkier but shorter
>>46244379The claws and their legs become stronger, strenghtening their survivability in the currents. This are also helped by its evolving mouth, which now sports some tendrils infront of its opening. This small feelers helps the creature to sap themselves into rocks, as well as instantly filtering any nutrients and scraps that came bythe water
>>46244047Seeking more space to grow, some fire-harss have begun to branch out into shallow water.
>>46242913With the increasing abundance of food, some Flooz become increasingly predatory on the ground. They develop stronger legs that let them better hunt down, and kill their prey.
>>46237771With both the land and the sea life now thrives on their own.. some greedy specimen decided to try having the best of both worlds. With robust transportational muscle bent into 'jumping' on land, two strong elongated appendages to grab preys, and gaping jaws with active tentacles, Bahaflouz emerged as water's edge predators
>>46245465In order to increase buoyancy, the sea-harss's leaves spread out against the water's surface. This allows it to grow further out into the water.
>>46246153The sea hrass's roots change as it adapts more fully to life out on the sea. Now the only roots connecting them are the tough upper roots. Because the root system is more compact, more hrass can exist in a smaller area.
>>46239769Mimic Foldworem had to step up their mimic game, to differing degree of success. Some body parts of this animal had changed in size or numbers, in order to stand on its own. Those additional feets are crucial for both swimming or scavenging on seafloor
>>46246421Now facing predation from sea herbivores, the sea-hrass develops stinging poison cells on its roots as well.
>>46241859Slowly, most of the eyes upon Shellworems dies out, this prompts its main feelers to evolves into more intricate and complex. Living most of its live in its shell, Shellworems conserve as much as energy as possible. This enables it to live quite long, long enough for it to hoard some shells on its own, where it lives with it partners and sometimes eggs and children
>>46243483>>46243499To better mimic the hrass in which it hides, the land-dwelling kerubs develop plate-like protrusions that roughly imitate the hrass's leaves.
>>46244108Nerossa develop protective hard scales, protective eye-lids, nostrils and lungs to adopt to the harsh environments of low wetlands that often suffer droughts.They also develop more bony limbs to allow for easier movement through the mud.Their diet changes to omnivorous.
>>46242316generations of predation by the strong jawed abush nero have resulted in a slower, but much more calcified helkreub offshoot. they cantankerously plow along the sea floor, their legs not quite supporting their weight, but able to drag them along. Modified jaws are used to rapidly shred plants and then form a protective barrier into the only soft part of their shell.TL/DR: come at me bro.
>>46243735>>46244309needs to start evolving towards looking more smug
>>46246033Slowly, Bahaflouz evolves into a more energy efficient form. It grows soles on its lower body, allowing it to slowly creep in the land. Its appendages shortes, but they become stronger. It mouth tentacles became longer. While seemingly small, it mouth can stretch up two 4 times the normal size to swallow.
>>46242106Small leaves on Hrass have grown larger in order to gain more sunlight.
>>46244309A distinct offshoot of the Neuro appears, with a highly sensative neck beard that is used to detect small movements along the sea floor which helps it find prey. This neuro is more susceptible to diseases and parasites than its contemporaries, and is markedly more lethargic, and prone to obesity and great difficulty mating. If they mate, the male will tend to die from exhaustion shortly after.Males who manage to not mate for roughly 30 years become sterile, but also benefit from being significantly larger and more powerful than any other organism in the current seas. A true tyrant, almost magical in their bloated glory, eating all in their path, serving almost no biological function.
>>46244309Many ambush Neuros adapt to the rock-bottom conditions and the hours of stillness that come with their ambush tactics by growing larger eyes and true gills that allow them to filter oxygen from the water even without movement and give them an edge when chasing quick prey
>>46247306(Un)fortunately, most of these species's egg are imperfect, causing them to keen merging with another during its early stage. This of course resulted in bulkier omniverous mutant helkreubel, which the name also been applied to its precedessor. Herlkreubel had another set of legs in the middle of its tall body, which enables it to stant back again when loses it balance. Its mouth also been formed to suite its new form
>>46247598While not technically evolving, the elder specimen of neckos have achieved extremes longevity due to a slowed down metabolism.Their incredible consumption and growth beckons some parasitic Shellworems or opportunist aquola to make home inbetween the old scales and fistulas traversing the mass of stored blubber.Their jaw bones weld in open position and tissue simlar to their beard grows inside their mouths allowing, them to catch victims wadering too close despite it's slowness.
>>46244108Aduneros are the tougher breed of the Neros, created after some of the species are trapped in a cove and have to resort into eating each other when the food eventually become scarce. Some of them managed to excape back into open ocean during storms, unleashing the inbred terror into the sea.
>>46246924Some of the fire-hrass-immune kerubs begin to rub themselves against the leaves of fire-hrass plants to coat themselves in fire-hrass poison.This behavious emerges as a result of increased pressure from the predation by the flouzes.
What sort of climate does this world have?
>>46247514jesus this is horrifying
>>46250781watery with a chance of eldritch angles in the skies.
>>46250781Unless otherwise stated in the OP, assume earth-like.Right now everyone is around the tropics, but that can change!
>>46241225To better hunt prey and deal with predators some Neuros develop claws on their fin tips.
>>46250781OP here. Pretty much >>46250993. Tropical waters around a chain of tiny islands, a couple of which are volcanic.>>46251058kek
Cloro's are a a simple mass of organic matter found floating one the suface of the ocean.
>>46246924>>46250177The protrusions on the land kerubs grow longer and more flexible.
>>46251425Some Cloro grow appendages to help them move around.
>>46251425You're not really supposed to add new base creatures in these.
>>46251425The Cloro slowly become more complex.
>>46246716The sea-hrass's roots begin to exude a sticky substance, allowing them to hold onto small animals that die from their sting and use them as fertilizer.
>>46251697To catch more prey for fertilizer, the sea-hrass root system grows larger and colonies of hrass grow closer together (with shorter upper binding roots).
>>46239769A group of Mimic Foldworem took an oportunity to hang in >>46246716 during the years and years when the plant is perfecting its poison.. the result is hazardly coloured Gellworem,with long legs to hold into the labyrinth like root of the plant. This creature is of course immune and even soak itself in poison as self defense. Gellworem itself were omnivorous, and sometimes too many Gellworems on an single plant may instead eat its home, killing it.
>>46243765Some tallhrass develop nutrient rich seed pods that fall to the ground when ripe. This allows land-kerubs to eat them and then defecate out the seeds somewhere else, spreading the tallhrass's genes faster than their root system can grow.
>>46252041The sea-hrass begins to release fish attracting pheromones. The excess kills are shared with the gellworem, making it less likely to feed on the hrass itself.
>>46252493Sorry, I mean, "shared with the >>46252227 gellworem."
>>46247830The gills and large eyes of this species of neuro equip it well to descend down into the cold, dark world of the deep sea.After spending generations in this environment, wasteful pigmentation is to some degree selected against.>I had to brutalise a drawfag's picture
>>46251360The pectoral fins on some Neuros lengthen allowing them a limited ability to traverse land.
>>46252493>>46252523The sea-hrass also develop an alarm hormone that is sent down the connecting roots to other plants in the colony when one becomes overburdened with >>46252227This hormone prompts the other plants in the colony to produce a chemical that makes their roots and leaves unpalatable to the gellworem. The original plant will die, but the colony will survive.
>>46252868This evolution was accelerated by the relatively new food source that is the fruit of the tallhrass that fall onto the beach, with the neoros with more power in their fins being able to travel further up the beach.
>>46251520Some of the land kerubs develop claws and powerful limbs with which to climb the tallhrass, allowing them to reach the fruit before it falls.
>>46253657Land kerubs with more prominent claws on their forelegs can more easily battle the semi-amphibious neuros and other land kerubs for delicious tallhrass fruit
Goddammit, I miss the previous evo ran by The Librarian
>>46253963Hey maybe you should help us evolve some critters instead of being a downer.
>>46253828An extra set of mandibles, for stuffing his mouth more efficiently and holding down larger prey.
>>46254346A third eye, because seeing is believing, and all good things come in threes.
bump of the bump kind
>>46254504The portrusions was so successfull they have continued to grow, and now have small pores to absorb water and keep moisture.
>>46254623The feeding mandibles have multiplied and become smaller, now functioning as razor sharp teeth to better crack the shells of prey. The land kerub will now prefer to grapple its foes with all its appendages, crack its head open, and feed using its smaller mandibles, stuffing its mouth full.
>>46254750The land kerub has evolved tiny spikes covering its appendages, to better grapple onto foes and discourage them from attacking it.
>>46254107It's just not the same.
>>46247514The undersides of some bahaflouz begin excreting a sweet smelling slime that both increases their maneuverability and attract prey.
>>46254976Yeah, especially because of sadsacks like you
>>46254989How horrific. Imagine a cross breed with this>>46254889
>>46253657In order to defend itself from the quickly increasing number of predators, the protrusions on the back of the herbivorous land-kerub grow hard and taper into points.
>>46255506>>46255319>>46255232>>46254889>>46254750>>46254623>>46254504>>46254346>>46253828>>46253657That's a lot of fast evolution, anon.
>>46253828The arboreal Kerub develops longer limbs, allowing it to scuttle faster between tallhrass plants and avoid the horrifying predatory kerubs.
>>46255637It's not all the same person.But seriously dude, slow it down.Give like ten minutes between evolutions when you're the only one doing it.
>>46255689>>46255637That didn't mean you had to delete what you already posted my dude
>>46253490As time goes on the land crawling Neuros get fins better suited to traversing land.
>>46237801To escape predation Foldworem adapts to live in the wetlands. It takes on a more flattened appearance.
>>46259104Foldworem developes jaws. It can now feed on Aqueola and Umidola. It multiplies in great numbers in the wetlands.
>>46259412Oooh, more food for the neuros
Almost done updating the trees.>>46254976I know how that goes. Felt the same way back in the days when evogames were shifting away from involving some supernatural entities. Just follow along lurking for a bit if you'd like.
>>46260774Time to see if the file is too large.
>>46261300This is so satisfying.Hey is there a world beyond the islands?
>>46252315the tallhrass adapt to pesky impatient climbing species by exuding thick purple sap from cracks all over their stems, so that the pods have time to mature and drop without being eaten early.
>>46261446mabye a main content with a race of beings and then tradional shit like gobs and orcs and dwarvens
>>46242741To capture moisture better Umidola's body becomes covered with leaf-like protrusions. It behaviour also changes. It now congregates in densely packed colonies that retain water inside them. Those improvements allow it to move further from water.
>>46254889The land kerub has evolved fluffy wing like portrusions from its back. It is capable of limited winged flight, changing hunting grounds between grass patches in mountain areas.
>>46260774Maybe a combining of evo-universes?
>>46251631Cloro develops new translucent cells around itself, which make it taste bad.
>>46253490To better hunt kerubs, the land Neuros have developed a more land optimized body. They have lost the lower dorsal fin to allow them to move more quickly overland and have evolved heavy scales on their faces as to be better able to resist attempts by Kerubs to fight back.
>>46261975It was three threads so maybe we should wait a bit.
>>46261918Now completely dependent on flight, the land kerub has devolved its other appendages.
>>46246033Bahaflouz' "jumping" muscles become more suited for performing jumps. They can now perform several jumps in row as if it was running. Good for catching those pesky long legged arboreal Kerub.>>46255651
>>46261650To retain moisture inside their colonies more efficiently Umidolas grow taller.
>>46262171It looks like a dick
>>46262171Umidolas grow additional aerial roots that they use to bind together.
>>46261989Cloros start to huddle closer together as they get more numerous.
>>46259412Worems have a 1 in 4 recessive character trait of appearing green. A new predator moves in eats all of the brown worems leaving only the camouflaged green worems behind.>Worems evolve to appear more green
A universal shift causes some races to be transported into another, these include the origin animals, and the end of each non-extinct evolution line, the origin animals are of many, while the end evolutions are of few numbers, overtime however, the end evolutions will slowly gather back their population, in sync with current and their universe's original animals's evolutions.Here are the new origin animals.(Not OP, like the name said, I just want to have the old evo's animals, I balanced it out with low population and have them adjust slowly in sync with current animals evolutions)
>>46251540Since sea-hrass (>>46252493) is starting to blot out the sun for cloros near shoreline, the cloros have developed the capapility to digest the decaying fish trapped between sea-hrass roots. They also get longer to improve manovering ability between the roots.
>>46262489Sand Speckled Braf - A 21th Generation Evolution of the Braf, and an apex predator, it possesses incredibly thick segmented armor, and a long tail ending in a spring activated stinger with potent neurotoxin that also dissolves its food, also acting as a mouth. Its vents along its body filter out toxins and smog, and can sense both electricity via its antenna, and see with its eyes. It has powerful claws evolved from mandibles, capable of piercing and breaking thick armor with ease. It lives on shallow waters and on land. Its sandy color derived from the bottom of the sea.
>>46262489Oh shit, I forgot to add the Hawa.
>>46252493>>46253364The sea-hrass develop bioluminescent stripes on the undersides of their leaves to help attract prey.
>>46262489>>46262609>>46262623Dude, I dunno about this.Just evolve what we have man.
>>46262489Spearnose Sail Zawa - These 12th Generation Hawa have evolved large, rigid plating with barbs to reduce physical damage along with longer, stronger and more developed fins, and larger tail. The fins eventually became reinforced with strong spines. They also grew a pointed nose for more streamlined swimming. They have an aggresive behavior, devouring toxic prey which led to a larger and more complex digestive system with rocks to grind up food in their stomach due to being unable to chew food. Adults can grow up to 4.9 ft. They suffer from resorting to cannibalism due to previous prey being harder to catch. In addition, they have hairlike extensions to feel the water around them better.
A tectonic shift causes a vent of hot, toxic gases to begin to flood the deep areas. Only toxin resistant helkreubs are able to survive there, forcing a population shift further up of other non resistant helkreubs. The water on this side of the island is inhospitable to plant life, only extremely hardy species can survive here.No pictures because I am on a phone without the capacity. No aesthetic changes are necessarily warranted, only the environment is really changing.
>>46262489Ambush Bzalgae - Thorny Algae attached to Plate Bzols in a symbiotic relationship, toxins protecting them from predators in exchange for feeding upon their host, and they evolved together. The Bzol became rooted, shifting to a Omnivore from the algae developing attractive colors to lure creatures. The algae began growing tentacles to further lure in creatures as hiding spots, some tentacles are eaten by the host Bzol, while others fertilize nearby plant material via waste products. The algae created a space for Bzol young to mature to a stage where algal growths can take hold. Eventually, the two organisms merged on a ceullular level, causing the chitinous shell to be composed highly of plant material, and cells produce chlorophyll. With abundance of energy, its mouth has become semi-vestigial, and the beak made of softer tissue used to inhale small organisms grazing upon its back. It eventually became mobile once more, aided by sensing antennae, and evolved its wiggly legs to become long and spindly, by spreading its algae-chitin shell into a basic exoskeleton around limbs, allowing carrying of its body with ease. And what once were algae-feeding Cerar became colonies of nesting parasites in its algae shells, feeding the dead and dying parts of its bodies, and attacking any who come near its host, and can be expelled from the Bzalgae's body if needed, some seek out creatures in a state of weakness, attack them, and lay almost-mature egg sacks within their remains, protected by remaining Cerars in the hatching Bzalgae.
>>46262842They became amphibious, and grazed plentiful lichen, and began to show signs of a pack mentality, leaving egg sacks behind in a safe place and began to give live birth to dozen of baby Bzalgae at once, and evolved to eat in packs, moving in marshy wetlands, and laying young underwater, they develop mandibles helping to catch and hold prey, or to tear apart already dead ones. They lie partially submerged in soft earth or underwater, so only tendrils are visible, when an animal comes to close, they leap out and impale them with their legs or expel a swarm of venomous Cerars. These creatures are incredibly aggressive.They are the 19th generation of Bzols.
>>46262256Umidola grows a ring of tentacles around its upper edge. The tentacles excrete a pungent odor that is attractive to flying kerub.When kerub lands on the plant it is captured by the tentacles and drowned in a water-filled cavity in the middle to be used as fertilizer.
>>46262489Vomit Algae - A 9th generation of Algae. Algae derived from thick ashes clouding its original world, it is covered in a sticky acid, that digests the tissue of other organisms for extra nourishment, and eventually begin latching onto the insides of larger animals, around areas with dense nerve clusters, and tissue similar to its host, and slowly begin to affect its host's nervous system. Eventually, it evolved into a dangerous parasite, burrowing and bonding to a creature's tissues, attaching itself to the nervous system, often influencing the host to overeat to the point of being bloated, and steer it towards danger in hopes of it getting ingested into a larger animal. While its neurons are not powerful enough to control larger creatures, it can simulate an intuition its host will often trust. It eventually developed noxious chemicals to be released to induce violent digestion purge in its host to flush out other organisms disturbing it that aren't well rooted in its host, this chemical became more complicated, the vomiting reflex to spread young and ward off other parasites and predators by detecting signals from the hosts nervous system.
>>46262489Mutabraf Ferritor Osseum - From an old strain of the Braf, that had a strange ability to incorporate genetic material from digested tissue, while it did not give them the ability to steal traits from other creatures, it did mean that overtime, similar diets over multiple generations resulted in bizarre mutations such as this one. They initially developed light sensitive cells and rudimentary pectoral fins, and those with longer tails displayed a capacity for digging through soft sand, with longer hairs to improve sensory capabilities. Evolving a thicker tail, with hairs that push food into their mouths. A strain of Mutabraf had developed a gastro-intestinal tract capable of filtering Iron, a strand excreting it into its epidermis, where metal form deposits, further mutations caused them to anchor muscular fibres to the iron structures, articulated and acted as an exoskeleton, resulting in more effective digging and easier movement, and larger Mutabrafs with better skeletal articulation being even better at digging, some even pushing into shores in tunnels filled with water, however, due to living in a low-light environment, their photosensitive pits are sealed over their metallic shell and lost. They are 11th Generation Brafs
>>46243213The new changes and opportunities presented by the evolving plants have lead to a the herbivorous Flouzie developing larger, keener eyes that allow them to identify and consume the choicest morsels of fruit and new leaves.Their colouration has become more varied and most now have dark speckles around their eyes. Their photophores have also developed three separate 'pouches' that, combined with their improved eyesight, allow for more complex communication between individuals.>>46262489pls nopls take ur over evolved monsters awaymake them go and stay go
>>46239270develops poison to be able to get its prey easier
>>46239270becomes thinner and more agile with its movement, it now uses a sudden boost of speed to stab fishes with its shells which will then be easily grabbed by its tentacle paddles
Natural selection favours neoros who are able to spend longer in the harsh environment of the beach, producing the thick-skinned, scale-bellied hardy land neoro. The thick, hardy rough-scaled skin of the top of the hardy land neoro also protects it to an extent from the stings of the poisonous sea hrass and fire-hrass.
>>46263405air bubbles have formed under their shell and started floating on the ocean surface to be able to eat the surface floating hrass
>>46262493Sensing the universal shift, the Cloro develops signalling organs for communication and to ward off predators.
This is a bit of a hot mess
>>46261617While it may be fun, can this be just a small primordial planet?,, a nice, little, early planet, promising with life
>>46262489Why must everything be a recurring adventure?Why must a thread be CYOA, Quest, or any or that bullshit? Can we have like, a singular thread for once? This is shaping it up nicely, a little bit off enstranged with the rest of the board, but still a petite haven for some new creatures to evolve on their own.So, with all due respect, I ask OP, to veto this event out
>>46262298In response to the increased predation on the worems, they have adapted to be less mobile. Choosing to anchor themselves in position an remain motionless, they conserve energy and probe for prey/threats with their sensitive tendrils.
>>46263855Just woke up and checked thread. >>46262489 is vetoed.>>46261975Only so far as being two planets in the same universe. Possibly same galaxy.
>>46263472Mobo Cloro - the new electrocommunication organ proved very useful in Mobo Cloro survival. When one Mobo Cloro was eaten, it sent out an alarm to nearby Mobo Cloros, who would then escape.Since the electric organ proved to be very useful, it evolved to be more efficent and reliable.
>>46264269The worem has evolved pseudo-pincers that aid it in burying itself into the sand and locking itself there. The feeding mandibles have been replaced by a probuscis mutation that allows the worem to pierce its prey, inject digestive enzymes, and then feed. The Syringe Worem is born.
>>46261918Kerub has developed lighter body and aerodynamic wings.It has now mastered flight and takes to the heavens.
>>46262493Some cloro Become significantly larger and develop crude legs for walking on the ocean floor
>>46264376This electric organ developed further, allowing some tendrils to administer a shock to deter predators.
>>46263414These Neoro have evolved a more streamlined tail and dorsal, allowing them to move much swifter on land.
>>46264296Is there a catalog somewhere of old Evo threads?
>>46246468Mimic Folworem evolved to step up their mimic game.
>>46261606Some millions of years later...
>>46251631Cloro becomes bigger and hollow to make the area that catches sun rays bigger.Cloro Mega species is born
>>46265282Wrong Cloro linked as parent.Actually decended from this Cloro.>>46261989

>>46254989Bahaflouz really utilizes these fluid to move around, to the point where it evolved it arms to aid it in moving as a paddle. Pictured here is the newly evolved Bahaflouz opening its mouth>>46262127Some Bahaflouz really loves jumping,. This result in a creature that use its maneuverable arms as a jumping rope, training the creature to jump higher and higher. They could catch the newly developing flying cherub now! However, do not be fooled. The hands on the arms itself were hardened, which it use as to throw unfortunate cherubs with harder shell far far away, in order to break their armor>>46252227With its homes slowly evolving to cull their numbers by developing a lot of weird new chemicals, Gellworem evolved its mouth into a proboscis, enabling it to pinpoint its feeding process. However, this result in the creature becoming smaller due to lessened food intake. In the other hand, some Gellworem instead choose to live out in the plant's leaves, becoming amphibious in the process. Their body thickened and legs grew longer. They use this new body to 'walk' on water, able to travel freely without the constraint of the plant anymore. However, they are easy prey for fishes from below, and thus unless some of them able to 'walk' into actual land, Jalanor is doomed to extinction>>46248740Being the lazy animals they are, some neckos try to eat the floating poisonous plant on the sea urface. This result in mass death, but some elder neckos apparently had develop some unheard immunity due to its moronic lifestyle. This sparks a new species called the Neetu which breed asexually, and currently the only fish that could eat those plants. Their head bloated and thickened to weird shapes as a shield from the dangerous chemicals.>>46245595Hunter Flooz slowly, very very slowly, learns to pounce its prey instead of running with its strong flobby legs. This demands its body to become more aerodynamic and precise. It also changes its color to intimidate
>>46262264A genetic mutation has occured causing the Cloros to stick together. These Cloros work together to convert sunlight into glucose. O2 levels on the planet begin to rise extremely fast.
>>46264514In response to the increasing efficiency of predatory Flouzes, the hardly land neoros - which by being slow and poorly armoured were vulnerable on land - have, by natural selection and resultant evolution, developed a row of spines along their backs to protect them from predators. They are opportunistic omnivores which will eat most things non-poisonous in the shallow coastal water and the beaches.>>46265462Hah; I didn't see that when I read the name
>>46240480Iron Roo's shell gains an opening and its tentacles migrate to that opening to make the catching of food easier.New species is born - Roo Tubul
>>46250177>>46253828Natural selection favours land kerubs which cover their long claws with firehrass poison.The emergence of his behaviour is accelarated by increased competition by other kerubs and predation by flouzes.
>>46265854Male kerubs with exotic coloration are selected as mates more readily.
Im working this when the image limir is reached, so you can see it herehttp://imgur.com/LpgxxOwOn the leftmost, is the evolution of >>46265792 SInce moving tentacles were a huge success for the creature, it began to grow and grow more of them. These tentacles are also now able to slowly photosynthesis on their own, giving it more eating capabilitiesCenter, is the evolution of >>46265605Where the creature now learns about the importance of segmentation, enabling it to move even more freely thanbefore. Its spike also grows more rapidlyThe last one, the one on the left, is of course the evolution of>>46264673 where it realizes that mimicking something, wont work if you try to imitate some wimp fish. It now have triangle diameter for its body, giving it more speed, and the posture of Aduneros, giving it some more respect.
>>46264296Two planetsin the same galaxy or solar system works
Should we create a follow-up thread, or let this one die?
>>46266713I really want to, but I dont know if there are enough people to keep bumping the next one during critical hours.. But if we really were going to do it, then I sugest to start it off with the most updated gen chart akin to this>>46261300Im not a regular here at /tg/ so to be able to enjoy this one with yall were really fun. Thanks for making this one, and if there's a new one I'll probably hang around too
>>46248845Shit nig that's looks like a pocket monster, I'll trade you a raichu fo that shis
>>46266838Well, I'd rather let OP do it. Not so much the bystander syndrome as much as the fact that he his the one who ought to decide for his thread.
Is this continuation to Primordial? A lot of those starter creatures seem awfully familiar.
These are pretty cute. :3
>>46266713New thread please OP
Remember when evo games were huge and at least one went long enough that its creatures reached sapience and it turned into a weird version of a civ game?
>>46270342I'm going to make an Evo and Civ General.
>>46270596Please noAn evo thread where there's nothing to evolve will quickly either become shitposting or die
>>46270679The Civ General went fine, it'll allow discussion of Civs and Generals.
>>46270709Okay Anon, if you say so
>>46269524>>46266713I'd like a new thread.
>>46270342This evo game seems to actually take place in the world one of those older ones. Namely, the world of Primordial. The starter creatures of this thread are almost straight up from that game.
>>46271157Almost anon.. most of these critters were only similar in general shape or name only. You gotta let go of the past.Maybe this could be, y'know.. Primordial Revisited?
New thread, OP?You could add some climate events in the OP if you wanted.
Would it be a real dickish move for someone to takeover? But or course, before it we need to set up some ground rules yknow. For starters, the new thread will continue this lax storyline of this nameless planet, where lives are just starting to grow and there wont be another weird universe shift with a bunch of weird animal thrown in.. I mean natural disaster;s good, but not some weird wormhole shenanigansNot saying that I will, I need some serious sleep over here.. just throwing it out there
Just got back from work. I'll get working on some updated charts.>>46267271Yes it is, taking place in the early history of Borgas IV. Yesterday marked Primordial's 4 year anniversary.>>46270596>>46270679>>46270709>>46270740Common practice has been to use the currently running evogame as the general discussion.>>46265353OH GOD IT HAS A FEDORA
>>46272939New thread please OP!!!
>>46272939I made the Civ General and it's about to die, so I'm going to make a Evo and Civ General, to hopefully make civ and evo threads more popular.>>46266700I agree.
>>46272939Thanks OP, now I can fall asleep in peace. Sorry for asking about the whole takeover thing.. My bad.For suggestions, maybe the new thread could begin with a disaster? Maybe an asteroid that brings up some new landmass and additional budding plant organism, since I kinda thought we are lacking in variety of plantsalso, for convenience sake, can we pretend that planktons already exist in the planet? The Cloro line can be handwaved for an entirely different thing maybe
>>46273066Unless somebody else wants to start it first, I'm updating charts. Or we could just jack >>46273106's general Not really though. That'd be a bad idea and sort of a dick move.
>>46273349We'll wait for the chart update!
While we had our little downtine here, what are your favorite organism from this thread? And what do you think is the nost underappreciated organism?I dont want to take sides, but I love the jumping Bahaflouz, since Im able to think up about Bala Bala thanks to thayUndrrappreciated would be Shellworem, they could like tunnel their way to underground or take residence in other animal remains for variety
>>46273917My favourite creature would be >>46246924.I agree that the most underappreciated creature is indeed the Shellworem.
New thread now or tomorrow?
