    It went well earlier, so who wants to try it again? Create a Species Thread II.

    The rules:

    >I offer a series of possible choices or request input. Respond with one of the possible choices or your own input respectively, with "dice+1d100" in your email field. The person who rolls the highest number out of the first three responses gets selected and then I state the next phase.

    So what's the setting going to be?
    Or something else?

    Oh wow! Now, in keeping with the original thread, we should really include Crustacea and Chelicerata in some way connected to the main species we are developing here.

    However, that species itself is much like a Trilobite, living in the upper atmosphere. This does not mean it flies. Yet.

    No! We use crazy-ass COSMIC RAYS to communicate (which are actually particles, but shut your damn mouth).

    In fact, we are somewhat like the Jellyfish from the original thread, who used bursts of radiation to communicate in their warring with the infrared-speaking Squid. Awesome Bioluminescence is the way to talk in this universe, it seems.

    Our society is a nasty one. Factional, hedonistic groups compete with themselves and one another in the pursuit of knowledge. You kowtow to the alpha in charge, or your snaky body gets eaten. Our race has tried to philosophers and had philosophizing phases a lot in its history, but all of them have burned out. It's still a popular fad to be philosophical.

    Now, are we religious?

    Right said races are completely aware of us and they hate our guts - but, being fully aware, they know we could crush them if they dared resist. It's a good life being a trilobite snake.

    We're the bosses of the galaxy, but it can't all go our way. What crisis are we currently faced with? It doesn't have to be insurmountable, just present.

    'sup, folks.

    OP of the original here. The stuff that's gone on here is awesome, but I just have my own input.

    There is absolutely zero reason to adher to how I did things in the previous thread. I didn't have a structured table of what to go through. I came up with what was needed on the spot and you should do the same. Otherwise, this is awesome. You just need to be more versatile. Don't try to jump through my footsteps, try to come up with your own shit.

    Also, as a small note, when I say ecology and gas-based, I mean, they live in a gaseous atmosphere. That does not mean to say "they fly" or that they float around on a gasworld. So there's no need to add "land-based" to the equation.

    So, technically, Crawling + Gaseous (High Altitude) = Mountain-dwelling trilobites

    Although, crawling through air with rapid movement sounds much cooler, although that'd require some natural buoyancy.

    In any case, I am perfectly fine with everything in this thread. This shit's crazy.
