    You order the digging to begin.

    Slugspawn are pretty damn good at it, while Swimspawn are pretty poor, not really designed for shifting soiling. Scoutspawn are also kind of good at their job while Tank is taking the lead. That gigantic motherfucker is tearing the earth asunder as he digs down.

    Suddenly, something pops up from a hole, knocking back a surprised Slugspawn. The furry object tries to dart away, with strong back legs, a pair of long ears and a furry bob of a tail.

    Swimmerspawn take the lead, suddenly jumping forward and spitting out their harpoons, lancing the things. Tank jumps on one and mauls it while Athlete impales another by throwing one of his knives.

    "Don't kill them all! By Slul-Huggoth, don't kill them all!"

    However, that's rather difficult - casualties are still inflicted but by the time all of the rabbits are out of their warren, you have a total of...

    Definitely keep zapping the rabbits with psychic commands. The rats too, come to that - get them to associate this place with "home" now, so they don't range too far - the rats have more autonomy than the rabbits, since they're smarter and can understand that where we are is where the food is. We'll soon have a meat farm up and running.

    Meanwhile, get the scouts exploring the local area for signs of other interesting wildlife.

    You send a pair of Swimmerspawn to web over the rabbit hutch, then you assign a pair of Slugspawn to watch over it closely.
    The expansion of the den continues. It's supposed with branches gathered from the outside, reinforced so that it doesn't cave in.
    Hours pass and it becomes quite impressive - you're building yourself quite the warren. It's already large enough to contain your current population. Athlete also came across a handful of snacks that the rabbits left behind and ate them. How you interpret his meaning is up to you.

    You begin to lecture Athlete about eating food that could be shared with others, and that Slul-Huggoth favours the strong, but he also supports the weak. Athlete radiates apologetic feelings - but fails to hide his irritation.

    As for the rest, you lecture them about how you're the incarnation of Slul-Huggoth as his priest and as his servant. By serving you, they serve him. You are the chosen of Slul-Huggoth.

    Slul-Hugoth's blessings are quite apparent, in the strength of our brood - of Athlete, of Tank, of Swimmer and all of the others, each so well-suited to their role.

    It is Slul-Hugoth's will that our children prove themselves worthy of these blessings, by using them to strengthen and advance our brood as a whole.

    As the brood prospers, so the individuals within it prosper; the stronger the brood, the more food we can gather; the more food we gather, the further we can evolve, with Slul-Hugoth's blessing.

    We are the First, and we guide the brood, but always with the brood's prosperity in mind. We foster unity, we encourage cooperation, we demand loyalty to the will of Slul-Hugoth. The Traitor sought to place himself above the will of Slul-Hugoth, to divide our kind, to bend them to his own selfish will, and he was struck down.

    We are the First. All are our children, and while we are sometimes harsh, it is always for the best of the brood.

    You have no idea how far you are from the surface.
    "Well, my children. That concludes our lecture. Let us resume our hunt and our mission to turn this land into ours."

    You ascend to the surface with your young following you. There's a massive feeling of admiration, strength and power amongs them. Nothing can stop you. But... Wait. What's the sniffing sound? It's not a Scoutspawn. It's too loud, too heavy, too clumsy. It's got to be an intruder, near the surface. With righteous fury welling up inside of you, you ascend towards the surface and glare out at the figure snuffling at your warren hole.

    You let out an angry hiss and your mouth opens wide, revealing inches of barbed calcium harpoon, rattling in your mouth. The bear grunts in confusion.
    You fire and suddenly, there's' a loud roar and a spurt of blow. Zealous warcries suddenly yell as the bear leans back, going rampant and clawing at the air - the distance forces you to rip out the harpoon. Your children suddenly charge out and the armoured bulk of Tank collides with a leg - it's enough to make the confused, half-blinded bear lose balance.
    You co-ordinate with Athlete almost instinctively, quickly relaying your commands, you circle around the bear, bombarding it with information, trying to confuse it and overload it. It thrashes about violently as the rest of your kind, slowly than you, Tank and Athlete, close in.
    Then, it gets lucky. There's a paw smashing at the ground. Tank is knocked to the side and you're pretty sure you hear some chitin crack - but it's not a lethal crunch.
    Unfortunately, Athlete is not as heavily armoured as Tank. And he's next in line for being hit by that single, powerful swipe.

    The roaring bear struggles to climb to its feet again but a harpoon strikes an arm. Then another hits a leg. Then another and another and another another.
    Over fifty harpoons are being spat out at the beast, burying into its body from all directions as your young overwhelm it, screaming zealous warchants as they do so.

    You request Tank and Athlete to step forward and you request the dagger of Athlete. Bemused, he offers it and you step up on to the bear's chest, inviting them to join you as you do so. You slice open the bear's stomach, revealing its guts to all.

    You release a sudden psychic scream, not of an emotion, but a concept. Something dear to all of you. Something that deserves nothing but your upmost praise.
    They scream right back at you.
    Then, you raise the dagger above your head and let out a mindless roar, allowing your two favoured sons to feast. The creature lets out an injured, wounded, tired cry and continues to wriggle and struggle - but eventually the movements die as Tank and Athlete both feast on its entrails, tearing it apart from the inside out.
    "I shall consume the brain so that I may take its knowledge and prowess as a hunter of this land! Athlete shall consume the heart for his compassion and understanding of Slul-Huggoth! Tank shall consume the arms so that he may gain the strength and the fury of this mighty beast! Feast, my children, feast!"

    Your fishy friends return with three dozen Warty Comb Jellies and deposit them on the shore, accepting their share of the feast - a leg that you deposit in the ocean for them.

    You're quickly becoming bloated - in fact, you notice that Swimmer, Tank, Scout, Guy, Girl, Athlete and Fish - they're all exuding a strange, thick liquid of a reddish hue that is sticking to their bodies, slowing them down and hindering their movements.

All seven of the gestating individuals are creating their cocoons and within seconds, they're nothing more than pulsating shells, to hatch in a week's time.

    Well let's wait then. We must NOT gestate in the meanwhile. We're going to have to wait them to evolve before gestating too.

    Assign the littlespawn to clearing up the site of the fight - we don't want to draw attention to ourselves here. Get the remaining bits of bear out of view. We're a fair way from our original sewer, but we're still pretty close to human habitation. We can't risk discovery.
    >> Bioplasma !LzFfkxZBAY 11/13/09(Fri)21:33 No.6693844
    You do so. After a few hours work, there's no trace of the bear. Every bone and every piece of flesh is packed away inside of the hive, you've even made the bear tooth necklaces for your favoured sons.

    No contact from Flyer.

    Well then let's wait a week for our children to finish gestating. In the meanwhile train our psychic powers with birds and brainwash them to look for Flyer
    >> MadSlug 11/13/09(Fri)21:38 No.6693902
    Keep our eyes on the skies to look for flying creatures. if we spot ones (which aren't Flier himself) then we can try and psychically down them. Either to interrogate, enslave and send after flier or simply consume.
    >> Bioplasma !LzFfkxZBAY 11/13/09(Fri)21:39 No.6693917
    You wait the week.

    You feast on the bear's remains and the jellyfish that are being gathered. You fashion several pelts for your favoured children to wear, as well as for you to wear as a form of cloak - it's pretty cold out. Flyer does not return. Twelve Swimspawn lay egg sacs in the hive - Athlete's children.

    Now the week is over and the gestating children are about to hatch.

    Anything you wish to do before you observe this?

    This is true - we don't want to risk unchecked population expansion just yet. Destroy most of the eggsacks. Save one.

    We do this for the good of the brood. We take no joy in it, and the eggs we destroy are to be consumed by those of the smaller spawn that we select, in order that they might add Athlete's fine traits to their own when they gestate. They will be his children instead.

    Fishspawn sent to the sewers confirm a lack of Scoutspawn.

    Over the week, you've been interrogating various different types of birds that you've brought down. None of them have eaten anything remotely related to Flyer. So, you've just eaten them.

    Your children are hatching from gestation. Posting updated forms in a new thread.

    Encourage intelligence and strength. Let breeding take place freely. Only control what happens when it is needed.
    >> Anonymous 11/13/09(Fri)21:47 No.6693990

    Bear in mind that if the Enemy is remaining in the sewers, they're going to have to restrain their breeding too, or risk discovery - they're living right on the humans' doorstep, so if they overbreed and start having to roam further afield for food, they stand a higher chance of getting found out. If they're as cunning as they seem, they'll limit themselves like we are.

    There is not an infinite supply of food animals in the local area. If we have too many offspring, we will exhaust the local hunting and have to range further afield. The further afield we go, the more likely it is that we'll get discovered by humans. If we get discovered by humans then we are all kinds of fucked, because they have a lot of advantages over us - they're intelligent, they're cooperative, they have access to all kinds of tools and weapons which will make short work of our brood.

    We absolutely cannot afford to be discovered.
    >> Anonymous 11/13/09(Fri)21:55 No.6694051
    Yes. Eventually we're going have to range further afield and deal with humans. That's going to be true whatever happens. What's your plan, kill the hated enemy and then just sit in a fucking forest as a happy part of the ecosystem when we should be THE DOMINANT LIFE-FORM!

    We need the numbers for the war with the enemy.
    We can't afford to limit ourselves due to a little bit of cowardice.

    Also. Tunnels.

    Yes, but thats in the distant future. As are consequences of potential overpopulation.

    We need numbers for the war with the enemy because we dont just want to win... we want to win and still have a large enough horde to begin our machinations against the enemy.

    Long-term plan:

    1. Limit our numbers. Assimilate lots of different species' DNA until we or our spawn evolve a form that is optimal for FUCKING AWESOME HUMAN-KILLING APEX PREDATOR purposes.

    2. Breed like crazy. Everyone gets pregnant all at once.

    3. Harvest as much biomass as possible, get our new optimum brood to put all of their gestations into getting bigger.

    4. Sweep out in a tide of fangs and claws and deadly cunning.

    5. ?????

    6. Profit.
