Hello again fellow creators. We will be starting this thread again on Moon World Rienia from the the start of the Mid Magedivatian Era, to the Late Magedivatian Era.As GM, I'll do my best to actively work on phylogeny charts to track the evolutions, and also make random events for the world to drive evolution down new paths. Since I've done this a few times now, and taken the time to observe/lurk on other EvoGames, I've picked up a few new tricks to keep everything organized and streamline too. Also we'll be returning to Janus after this second thread for Rienia.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 why.• Details indicating what the generation of your species is important. Please indicate. (Base Organisms are Generation 0)• Details regarding a creatures size or name are encouraged, but not required.• Nothing too outlandish. Anything silly or derailing will not be considered a canon species 95% of the time.Notes:• 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 in biological standards.• Everyday I'll add an update Phylogeny Chart to track changes. These take awhile, so please be patient.• Expect a Random World Event at the end of this thread to shake up the world and game.• There will be no Mass Extinction Event for this era, but this will be the final era the Base Organisms are available for evolution.• When this thread reaches its endpoint, we will be switching back over to Moon World Janus next thread.• Have funNew to the Game?:• Don't be shy. If you have an idea for an organism and want to spend the time making it, please by all means do so. • We also have a Discord to keep you up to date on EvoGame stuff, and chat with other folks. https://discord.gg/kk8eJgJ• I will be making an Imgur Gallery for this EvoGame in the near future (ETA Soonish) Till then use the Dossier PDF provided for any details you need on organisms we're using.• There is a Blank Template that you can use to make any organisms you wish to make for this game below.• Just a note, while it doesn't matter how intertwined your organism is with the rest of ecosystem, the more dependent it is on the existence of other creatures, the more potential your organism has to survive.The Description of the Era on Rienia, Setting, and, and more will be posted in supplementary posts.Previous Thread for Janus: Janus Part 4 >>1127053Previous Thread for Rienia: Rienia Part 3 >>1173150
Present Setting: As Janus enters the Mid Magedivatian Era, it experiences a gradual warming. The glacial extent of Rienia's ice caps begin to recede, carving the landmasses as they melt for new freshwater bodies to appear in. Due to the moon world's smaller tropic zone, much the ocean temperatures remain unchanged, only rising 1°C globally. In this time the warmer temperatures on land makes life on land even more hospitable, even flourishing in the wet, tropical climates of Rienia. Life on land has begun making its first steps, with a handful of pioneering organisms exploring the new frontier, but life now face a new challenge on land as it grows larger: 20% heavier gravity. Life in the oceans meanwhile has stayed mostly the same, though many new Halikots have evolved to dominate the open oceans. As new species rise up in this time period similar to Janus, this era is now dubbed the Golden Age of Biodiversity.--Organism Advancement--> Plant Organisms may be as large as the size 14 increment as stated here> Terrestrial Plant Organisms may be no larger than size 11 unless they have a means to overcome the heavy gravity.> Animal Organisms may be as large as the size 13> Terrestrial Animal Organisms may be no larger than size 10 unless they have a means to overcome the heavy gravity.> Carbon-based nutrients/minerals, along with Silicates, Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Selenium, and Organic Compounds are now present in the environment and may be incorporated into an organisms diet/evolution if desired.--Planet Statistics--Atmosphere: 78% Nitrogen, 14% Oxygen, 3% Helium, 2% Carbon Dioxide, 1% Sulfur Oxide, 2% Other GasesAverage Global Temperature: 70°F (21°C)Tectonics: Present; Active, SlowingVolcanic Activity: FrequentWeather Systems: Turbulent Storm Systems--Size Increments--• Size 1: Sugar Ant (0.1 - 1 cm)• Size 2: Bumblebee (1.01 - 2.5 cm)• Size 3: Mosquitofish (2.5 - 5 cm)• Size 4: Poison Dart Frog (5 - 10 cm)• Size 5: Giant Water Bug (11 - 20 cm)• Size 6: Birdwing Butterfly (21 - 35 cm)• Size 7: Horseshoe Crab (35 - 70 cm)• Size 8: Australian Trumpet Snail (71 - 100 cm)• Size 9: Japanese Giant Salamander (100 - 150 cm)• Size 10: Aldabra Giant Tortoise (150 - 200 cm)• Size 11: Leatherback Sea Turtle (2.01 - 2.5 m)• Size 12: Mekong Giant Catfish (2.5 - 3 m)• Size 13: Giant Pacific Octopus (3 - 4 m)• Size 14: Ocean Sunfish (4.1 - 4.6 m)• Size 15: Tiger Shark (4.6 - 5.2 m)• Size 16: White Sturgeon (5.2 - 5.8 m)• Size 17: African Elephant (5.8 - 6.5 m)• Size 18: Great White Shark (6.5 - 8 m)• Size 19: Manta Ray (8.1 - 9 m)• Size 20: Porites Coral Reef Colony (9 - 10.5 m)• Size 21: Whale Shark (10.5 - 12 m)• Size 22: Gigantosaurus (12 - 16 m)• Size 23: Blue Whale (16.1 - 22 m)• Size 24: Brachiosaurus (22.1 - 30 m)• Size 25: Smaug, The Desolater (30m+)All available organisms with original resolution and rules for evolving organisms for the next 72 hours in next reply.

>>1218840And here's 2/2 of the Phylogeny Charts.Okay so in the pursuit of getting new players involved and to expand our Biodiversity, for the next 72 hours we will be taking a specific focus in evolving new organisms.--Evolution Event Rules--> Only the Base Organisms, and Organisms at Gen 3 or below in these most current Phylogeny Charts may evolved.> Base Organisms have an Advancement Bonus that is like additional biological feats they have acquired which are mentioned in the PDF in my OP.> No organisms may go above 8th Generation for the duration of this event.> These rules will remain in effect until 11am March 4th CST.-- Additional Stuff --As you noticed on the Map here, >>1218834 there are a great deal of geographic locations on Rienia that are available for naming. Feel free to give them names in order to help build the world of Rienia, just don't make the names too silly now.
And last but not least, here is a Blank Template for putting organisms on, updated now with an addition of Region slot where you can specify either the habitat and/or region your organisms is endemic to. Completely optional.
Hey, Librarian. Haven't seen you for quite a while, how are you doing?
>>1218845Landmass 1 looks like a pair of lungs to me, to why not call it "Lungen"? Then we could refer to them more distinctly as "West Lungen" and "East Lungen".
>>1218840The Rustree's crown grows downward, enveloping most of the plant's delicate trunk, which itself becomes forked.
>>1218817The female Haaga's tails solidify into a spiked Club-like fin that they use to defend themselves from predators (as a face full of club is enough to dissuade many predators). Males undergo a similar development, but their tails fins don't fuse, only one side of their tail grows club-like and it lacks spikes. This new defence allows the Haaga that remain in the ocean to grow larger than they could before.
>>1218845The climbing Allsa develops its limbs to be a bit better suited for climbing. it also takes up making its nests in the gaps of the Rustree's (>>1218910) head
>>1218845Some meliswirl find their way to cave systems on Landmasses 5 and 6, (Cardiat and Ovulon respectively) where they begin to feed on cave Kelp.To tear these plants out of the walls and ceilings, they jump out of the water with the speed afforded to them by their tail, and rip them out with a screwdriver-like mouth apendage that they develop, which is capable of turning almost around its axis.
>>1218834land mass 1 is to be called "the Split Shelf"
>>1218840Some larger variants of the Cave Bryum begin bearing fruit for the Caveswirl (>>1218968) to devour - ensuring that the aforementioned animal doesn't rip the whole plant with the roots out and instead only takes the loose sitting fruit.Additionally, the fruit has spores in it that when deficated can sometimes attatch to new parts of the cave system.
>>1219070>>1219076And I'd have gotten away with it too, were it not for these meddling anons!
>>1218817Other Melswirm develop a pair of feelers with very rudimentary light sensors that jut from the head. In addition their head changes shape slightly, developing a pair of curved prongs on either side of it to defend its neck from opportunistic hunters.
The Ruby Kelp grows a larger root network, and modifies its old roots into tubers for storing energy and nutrients, especially water. Together, these attributes let it move farther away from sources of water, and they form large fields that cover much of Cardiat and Ovulon.Also, naming landmass 3 D'Nesnote and island 4 Eteap.
Some Desert Petroc return from their arid habitat, growing alongside the Ruby Kelp. They extend the pod that contains their seeds, both to allow the wind to carry them farther and make it more difficult for herbivores to reach them.Landmass 7 is Knodge.
>>1219170Some Ruby Kelp start growing rampant, as a mutation in their genetic code has them not only grow a singular head, but multiple ones intertwined, fused together. These specimen take up more room and can store more iron.
>>1219183I think we're not allowed to evolve these. It's currently an evolution event as per >>1218845 where we can't evolve anything that's ON the Phylogeny charts over gen 3.
>>1219090is... is this a vagoo
>>1219229I... because there's a nub?I have a hard time seeing it.
>>1219207Shit, you're right. I think that's the second time tis has happened, too...
>>1219233but you can evolve anything from the thread after the charts until gen 8!
>>1218938>>1219207HA! OBJECTION! You evolved these small fellows, who are currently at generation 5!
>>1219239yep, only realized afterwards. but to be honest, I mainly redrew the ones on the chart to look less naff, so I hope it'll just take its place or something.
>>1218817Some Troc develop a long nozzle at the end of their bodies. These new "Trocket" will swallow water which can later be launched out of the nozzle, causing the Trocket to speed forward, allowing it to easily close the distance between itself and prey. Their mouths have also begun to develop extremely basic teeth-like growths, that make feeding far easier. Their small size causes them to rely less on killing their prey, and more on ripping off enough material from their prey to sate their hunger, which both their speed and small size aid in immensely. Also, I vote that Landmass 5 should be called Wrechland
Can someone give me a rundown on what we are and aren't allowed to evolve right now?
>>1219360easylook here >>1218845In essence, look at the charts: If it's Gen 1-3, it's fair game.Look at the thread: Anything posted in it, you can evolve, as long as it's not got "Gen:8" or higher on it.This is a temporary mode that happens every so often to avoid having single organisms that people evolve over and over as pet species while others are ignored, leading to a boring ecosystem.
>>1219360Gen 3 and below on the phylo charts
Some Pararoc migrate to the large freshwater lakes in island 10 and landmass 9, now called Yurdlad and Redger respectively. The plant loses the chemosynthesis, becoming a darker color better suited to a diet of only photosynthesis. The Telili stays fairly unchanged, although does begin to regain the eyes that it once possessed but atrophied as they became less active. This is needed because the smaller space, loss of the nutrients supplied through mutualism with the Pararoc, and darker water all make the new freshwater environment much more competitive.
Now I remember what ruins most evo games.The one predatory species which "integrates" multiple other species to become an overpowered mary sue. See: that giant tentacled poisonous-algae-spewing crab from that otherwise decent evo game.If this evo game allows "integration" of more than two species then I am 50% sure that it will crash and burn, and that % is only so low because of the evolution speed limitation rule.
>>1218834the swarmeli develops basic nostrils to smell food, particularly freshly dead carcases, that it uses to smell them and move for them. whenever something dies a crowd of swarmeli will gather and devour it in an instant. awhile they are incapable of defending themselves, they show up in such large numbers that they really don't need too, as one dead swarmeli means nothing when there's still another 999 in the swarm to continue the herd. as a result they become an easy pic for low lesser/smaller predators, such as the >>1218938 and the long tongue halikot.
>>1219421well also, most of the people here understand that mary sue creatures ain't fun.all the current prominent predators are extremely specialised to one job, and even then they aren't perfect at that.>the kamikaze shivralsa is good at jumping off tree's, but if it misses then its fucked. for every 5 successful kamikaze shrivalsa there are 50 that break there necks trying to get there first meal>the climbing Allsa is built to climb tree's. if its not in its tree its probably dead.>the thicc trocc and the long tongue halikot are focused entirely on eating large swarms of small prey. neither of them could ever even dream of hunting anything bigger then a swarmeli, they simply aren't built for it and they know it>the wu-wei halikot is as close as we come to a mary sue, but even then, considering it has to deal with lavikots tough armour, you gt the sort of idea that the two balance each other out
>>1219535desu the lavikot doesn't really feel like it balances out the fact that the wu-wei is a giant chinese dragon that spits acid. If anything, the fact that we have a 'dragon' and a 'knight' fighting at all is worse than either be themselves
>>1219567always forget the thing with t b h and desu
>>1219573eh. well chances are they're going to go next extinction event anyway
Some Collonyum start to fulfill to niche of smaller marine plants, shrinking and becoming more suited to living in close proximity to each other. They move the berries inside their leaves to keep the current from breaking them off.
>>1219580But what if I choose to save them, because I really like the design?
>>1219845What if I make a ninja and a pirate who are natural enemies?
The marshes at the bottom left of the Split Shelf are shallow, but murky enough that it is still difficult for light to pass through. The Marsh Kelp overcomes this by sprouting a series of long, thin leaves on one end of its body. These are able to stick out of the water and collect energy without being blown over or requiring too much effort to grow.
>>1219159Some of these melswirm evolve primitive armour plating to protect their back from predatory attacks.
The Northern Hawkie inhabit island and landmass 8, now named Noume & Theac. They grow a rough, broad tongue, which is used in conjunction with their beak to feed on the roots of the Ruby Kelp, the only plant that grows in such cold southern latitudes. They also slightly improve on their eyes, mostly making them better at differentiating color to help spot red plants among the dirt, rock, and ice.
>>1220030Wow, that's one creepy-looking animal. I guess that means you guys did your evolution well.
Following the Hawkie, the Reagelkilot begins making short trips onto land, developing a pair of short, gill-lined tubes running the length of the snout above the roof of its mouth. By flexing specialized tissue derived from jaw muscles, it can move air in and out, allowing it to exchange gasses without losing too much moisture. These are unable to provide enough oxygen for the Reagalkilot to survive for extended periods on land, but a dozen or so minutes is all it needs to find and kill a Hawkie. The long, thin snout with a end designed for grabbing is perfect for reaching into burrows and crevasses in search of prey.
World Map updated with like 95% of all submitted names for the map.Nice to see there's a lot of interest in naming the landmasses but, don't forget about the oceans and what not.
>>1220607For "Gulf 2", how about the Tsubo Gulf?I'm reminded (a bit forcibly through searching by brain) of tsubo bottles used to hold sake. They have a wide waist but a narrow mouth.Another name I quite like for somewhere is Cramnick, just because it rolls off the tongue quite nicely.
>>1219567Jesus christ, dont be a wuss. The wei wu doesnt even actually spit acid outside of a pufferfish life or death situation and the only knightly thing of its prey was added after a guy compared it to a knight just because it has armour.There are pet projects and mary sues (and if i remembet, the wei wu was indeed a pet project), but you really are trying to feed your paranoia
>>1220607bumpin so it doesn't get unbumpable until I'm home and call Gulf 4 Cardiac Gulf.
>>1221273ok, I don't want to make this into a whole thing, but it has a sword and shield, and has a helmet-looking thing on its face.
>>1221900exactly, and that happened after somebody said "Oh my god is this a knight fighting a dragon? Stop!" And then immidiately after, someone gave it a shield and a sword and said "But I want it like that!"Hence:>the only knightly thing of its prey was added after a guy compared it to a knight just because it has armour.If you want to talk pet projects in relation to that thing then it would be the guy evolving it wanting to make it a Leviathan, even calling the images stuff like "first step to Leviathan"
>>1219342Some trockets develop larger wind thunnels, and their teeth develop into small hairs capable of filtering out microbial organisms from the water, which are then absorbed through these hairs themselves.
>>1219159These Melswirm's light sensors expand and develop enough to see shapes.
>>1220607bumping with calling Ocean 2 The Abdominis
>>1219159Not sure if this fits the Melswirm fluff, tell me if it doesn't.]In the semi-isolated population of these Melswirm in Sea 4, prong size begins to be used to determine vitality when choosing a mating partner. Consequently, the Melswirm's prongs grow in length - but also in weight, slowing their swimming speed and making them more vulnerable to predation.
>>1222321Ah, woops, didn't mean to spoiler the entire thing."[Not sure if this fits the Melswirm fluff, tell me if it doesn't]In the semi-isolated population of these Melswirm in Sea 4, prong size begins to be used to determine vitality when choosing a mating partner. Consequently, the Melswirm's prongs grow in length - but also in weight, slowing their swimming speed and making them more vulnerable to predation."
>>1222326>>1222321there is no fluff conflict as far as I can see
>>1222321in fact, here:This isolated population of the Melswirm in Sea 4, which we will now call Bull Horn sea, develop their whole head structure to suit their mating fights - their horns are ideal for clinching, and their foreheads become suited to ramming, also used in mating rituals
>>1218817Other varieties of Collonyum grow larger and develop a third central lamp protrusion that hangs above the other two at the top of the plant, making it more obvious and causing more creatures to come for its delicious pods.Also I motion that Trench one be called The Neathran Depths
>>1219641The volcanic soil of isles 4, or Eamoht, are nutrient-rich and the perfect medium for plant growth. The Smolonyum adapts to living on the beaches of these islands, staying close enough to the tide line that they can spread their seeds but far enough inland to benefit from the nutrients in the soil.Nominating "nusharnedge" for Island 6 and "ieme" for Estuary 1.
>>1218968The Caveswirl grows its front appendages into long, taste-sensitive antennae, allowing it to more precisely leap at the fruit of the Cave Bryum. The cave ecosystem is unable to support this increased efficiency, however, so the Caveswirl begins to hibernate for several weeks at a time when food starts to become scarce. It envelops itself in a mucus cocoon and suspends most metabolic activity, conserving energy and nutrients.
>>1220607ocean 1 is to be called the breach
>>1223071that's pretty sweet
>>1223071the Caveswirl develops ridges on its plating to make it tougher. it also develops a tough shell in its hibernating form to protect it from predators that may eat it in its hibernating form
The Hawas that live in hotter climates develop thin, long bodies so that they're able to swim faster without overheating. They often live in between the branches of the Collonyum (>>1222599) for shelter. For the Collonyums, they'd be considered pests a colony of Hawas would eat the fruit the plant produces before any other animal would eat it.
>>1219641The Smolonyums living in deeper and darker regions of the ocean have to fan out their leaves to catch every little bit of sunlight they can. Their berries grow in a pyramid structure, wherein the lowest ones are still protected from the current, while the riper ones get pushed upwards, to be either eaten or swept away - both works for the plant's reproduction.They also develop a more gripping structure to not be swept away by the current themselves as easily.
>>1223233DON'T save stuff as Jpgs. It's so fucking artifactingI'll try and recreate this, but DON'T DO JPGs!!
>>1223708Some populations of these hawa develop better camouflage, their sandy yellow colour changing to a leafy green which blends in much better with the leaves of the Collonyum that are their home.
>>1225377I don't do JPGs, for some reason 4chan only lets me save these as html docs, so U have to screen cap
>>1223233>>1225377The caveswirl loses its 'fin' around its backside in favour of a rounder, more articulate segmented body.
>>1218845seeing as the competition with the apex preditors of the Halikot is quite steep, and the selection process brutal, it proofs benefitial for some to respecialize in smaller game. They develop a smaller frame, more suited for hunting the smaller animals in the ocean and less energy intensive, while also shrinking in profile, losing some of the hair and knife length to be less of a target for their larger cousins.
>>1225705Ooh, a shiny!
>>1218817Signed Byrum grow larger and they begin to earth their trailing vines as they grow older, allowing another plant to develop, though it is attached to its parent. Then the younger plant will develop a vine which will eventually earth itself and then the plant that grows from that will face the same, and so on and so on. This process allows the Singed Byrums to share the products of their Chemosynthesis, allowing all individuals to benefit from the relationship in times of trouble.
>>1218845The Tempestuous Halikot increases in size and the sexual dimorphism increases further, resulting in further changes in body pigment and the shape of axe-head. The Tempestuous Halikot is gray until it becomes fertile in adulthood. These Halikots mostly prey on their smaller cousins and the Thicc Trocs. The Tempestuous Halikot population is relatively small when compared to its relatives, few of its species surviving into adulthood. This is mostly due to other smaller predators as well as the aggressive behaviour of females, seeing youths as potential future rivals.
>>1218840The Thicc Troc's pressure sac develops a secondary role of being a primitive lung, it also develops a skin that is more resistant to loss of moisture. When the Swarmeli leaves the water and starts swarming, the Troc follows them. The troc expands its Gas sac during swarming season enough for it to slowly float 20 cm to 1,5 m above water level, its fins (functioning as cruse wings) and sacs (releasing gas, respectively regular air) aiding it in slooooooowly maneuvering. This docile creature only leaves the oceans during swarming season, being capable of spending 2 to 3 hours above water.Because of this occasional behaviour these Trocs are now called Blimp Trocs.The added calcium plate is just added fluff, explaining the structure the Thicc Troc has had for the last two generations.
>>1226932Just saw the generation lock, shit
>>1225866The Knife Headed Halikots head becomes slightly more elongated, decreasing drag in the water. Its caudal fin also becomes sharp and rigid with a slight flexibility, so that if it misses with its head it might wound its prey with its fin as it passes by.
>>1225705The green Hawa develops a pair of crude photosensitive organs, allowing it to separate its own from potential predators, based on the colour they give off.
>>1226566Wait, are the males larger than the females?
The isolated species of Troc in Tsubo Gulf further split from the Blimp Troc. They split the claws into four sharp mouthparts, used to hold and kill prey after it's been caught. The four appendages on their underside continue to develop, growing long, sharp claws made of the same material as the claws. They hunt for Pale Meli by skimming the tip of the claws through the sand, gliding just above the seafloor.
>>1227700Remember to link your post.
>>1227959this was the first time it got evolved this thread, so there wasnt anything to link to
>>1225791The caveswirl begins to develop tiny "legs" in order to grip onto the cave walls and harvest fruit more efficiently. These legs can move somewhat but mostly help in gripping.
[B]ATTENTION CREATORS[/B]The Evolution Event is over, which means all organisms are available for evolution. You can still evolve the Base Organisms too and I would heavily encourage this since the Base Organisms will not accessible next Era.--Evolution Rules 2.0--> The Organism Advancement (>>1218834) rules remain in place.> The max complexity of an organism now until the next era is Generation 20. The upcoming phylogeny charts accurate depict what generation each living organism is in.That's it have fun guys. World Event, Map, and Phylogeny Charts will be posted Thursday Evening.> There may be a total of 10 Region specific organisms until the end of this era.> It is encouraged that some the future evolution have a function towards building ecosystems. This will make upcoming events on the World to have more biome specific effect.
>>1228106The caveswirl develops another two rows of these nubs, so, suiting to their more and more omnidirectional lifestyle, being able to grip onto walls and ceilings from the sides, diagonally or from the underside.
In response to the evolution of the Thin Troc, the Pale Meli of Tsubo Gulf develop larger, more sensitive antennae, which are now sensitive to smell as well as touch. They also get bigger tails.
The Slippery Hawa develops even larger mucus-producing organs, allowing it to create a large bubble of thick, bad-tasting slime around itself at all times. this means it has no predators and can grow larger, but as it is unable to smell or touch the outside world it grows a cluster of light-sensitive organs descended from modified neurons from its brain.
>>1229704The insulating mucus of the slippery hawa makes it easy for them to conserve their body heat, and so they easily colonise the southern oceans of Rienia.(No evolution, just dispersion)
>>1231400hmm, i was kind of hoping to keep these species confined to the same area, but w/ever.
The Duelling Halikot find that speed and agility are far more important in their little duels than strength, and so they slim down, their thinner bodies producing less drag and allowing them to move faster. Their tail fins also become shorter and more rounded, aiding in the decrease of drag and increase of speed.
>>1218938The Climbing Allsa preys mainly on Scotera, whose main sense is their keen vision. To hunt more effectively, they grow camouflage to help blend in with the Rustree. They normally blend in with the trunk, but have a frill they can puff up to hide in the crown as well. They also lose the useless webbing.
>>1218938The other species of Climbing Allsa loses its hind legs entirely, using its extended fingers to cling to the side of the rustree to hunt.
>>1229649The pale Meli develops two appendages they use to hold onto both to larger plants they nibble off of as well as walls and ground to not be swept away
Natural selection encourages some populations of QT-Snowca to develop longer, forked tails. This evolution takes place in the south of the Abdominis Sea, in what I'll provisionally refer to as the East Wrechland Oceanic Region.These longer tails allows them to increase their speed and so achieve a higher catching / chasing rate when hunting prey. However, their surface area / mass ratio also increases, making it harder for them to retain body heat in the frigid water and meaning that they rhave to catch more prey each day than their shorter-tailed relatives.
>>1220194The Reagalkilot develops stronger legs and even toes in order to make more efficient trips onto land. They've even begun to become more amphibious, but they still can't stay out of the longer for too long. To combat the cold, some of the Reagalkilots closer to the poles grow more fur to cover their bodies and bulk up to store heat.
The Melscorp Grows far larger and their front claws become larger and stronger, both to compensate for the loss of their central limbs and to use as a defence against predators
>>1218834the kamikaze shivralsa, due to how close in proximity its target of landing is to nerves, develops a deadly neurotoxin in it body, complete with a powerful injecting system. it uses to strong muscles behind the venom sack to squeeze large quantities of venom through the hardened flesh on its mandibles, into the melscorp in a matter of seconds. this makes its killing method much faster then before, as it no longer has to rely on the slow blood based poison that was secreted slowly through its lips
>>1218817some of the original land based Melscorp lose their tail fins and grow a little longer (though not actually getting much bigger). These new creatures, called Melscopedes, also develop an additional set of hind limbs to better support their longer bodies
>>1237116The Melscopede's front limbs lose their claws attachments and instead end in sharp spikes that they can use to defend themselves from predators. Additionally, their jaws grow larger and more powerful, making eating easier.
>>1237116other varieties of Melscopede decrease in size and lose both their front claws and the blade-like protrusions on their head. These new "Lesser Melscopede" rely on speed to escape their predators as opposed to strength. They have also begun to mix up their diet, taking up the mantle of Detritivore and feeding mostly on dead plant matter.
Some Riverbank Halikot follow the Muddy Haaga into the swamps of southwestern Split Shelf. They adapt some armor on their feet to protect against stepping on Haaga and getting infected, as well as armor on their back in case an alsa variant attacks from above. Also, with the lose of the fins, they grow a tadpole-like tail for swimming.
>>1237640>>1237608>>1237116>Solo chain-evolving an animal in a pre-determined directionSeriously? Come on, anon.
A species of Byrock colonize Eamoht, growing into large, stony piles in the ashy ground. This have some strands of living tissue running through the dead organisms to carry nutrients, but otherwise most of the living plants are on the top of the stack. This is because, as a very young volcanic chain, Eamoht's soil, though fertile, is only a thin layer on top of porous stone. This means that seawater easily seeps the bedrock and into the loose dirt, causing saltwater "flooding" with the tide.
>>1238326oh right and the towers are because the byriver byrock was a freshwater plant
>>1238291I acquiesce to these charges, but society is to blame.
>>1229448Some Caveswirl manage to migrate to the volcanic cave systems of Eamoht. they supplement their diet with Byrock Tower, finding their legs perfectly suited to climbed up the rocky stacks. Because this is a much easier and more nutritious food source, they start to specialize in eating it. They lose the teeth needed to grab fruit in midair, and get longer feelers to navigate in open space as opposed to claustrophobic but easily-navigable tunnels.
The Crustree grows folds in its bark that allow it to absorb even more air. It also start releasing way more spores into the air.
>>1223708Some of these hawa, like their green cousins, develop sight. These hawa develop three primitive eyes - two look ahead for food whilst the third looks upwards for predators. It also develops a lobe fin to increase its speed, becoming the fastest of the small (size 1 - 2) hawa. The cause of these evolutionary developments is, of courses, the struggle to catch fleeing prey.[This time with the correct generation number]
>>1240271These hawa develop a diurnal lifestyle, hunting and grazing during the day and hiding in the branches of collonyum by night when their eyes are less effective.
>>1240342>>1240271>Solo chain-evolving an animal in a pre-determined directionSeriously? Come on, anon.
Some of the basal hawa begin to incorporate more scavenging and opportunism into their lifestyle, pressuring them to evolve nostril slits at the front of their body.These slits help them to find pungent rotting carrion in the water.
Alrighty folks, a bit overdue, but here are the updated Phylogeny Charts for the Mid Magedivatian Era. This is 1/2Now odds are these will be the last major Phylogeny Charts I'll be releasing before this thread is archived, so I'll be giving details on what's gonna happen from here on out after I dump all the new images for you guys.
>>1241128And here is 2/2 of the Phylogeny Charts.So here's what's gonna happen in the next 24 hours (in other words, when I get around to it).There will be a world event that you the creators will be rolling for that will determine the fate of potentially all organisms moving forward into the next threads. Full details on this will be provided in that supplementary thread.In addition, the threads that will be following this one will be as follows> Moon World Janus, Region 1> Moon World Rienia, Region 1> Moon World Janus, Region 2> Moon World Rienia, Region 2> Moon World Janus, Region 3> Moon World Rienia, Region 3> Moon World Janus, World Oceans > Moon World Rienia, World OceansWorld Events and Regional Events will be far more numerous in these threads, and Mass Extinctions less likely as we will be progressing through time periods more slowly. We will be going from Eras, to Periods (Mesozoic Era for example was comprised of Three Time Periods; Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous).I will go in-depth on this when we dive into the next thread. Until then, sit tight and keep evolving to your leisure. The World Event that will determine life's direction on the Moon World's will be up in the next 24 hours.
>>1241151That was NOT the second Phylogeny Chart, but the updated world map with new geographic player created names that I meant to add as well.Here is the 2/3 of the Phylogeny Charts
>>1241155Phylogeny Chart 3/3
>>1233612some shivralsa begin to grow incredibly small, fungi like byrum on its slime, as the slime is rather nutritious. in return the Shivralsa gets a warm coat of fur. awhile the usual kamikaze shivralsa live in the warm tropical forests of cardiat, this new warm coat is in no way good for the shivralsa, and as a result it begins moving to snowey regions, notably the northern regions of knodge. its prey is currently scarce, but it managed on what little it can find (nudge nudge, this is the rest of ya'lls que to start making polar creatures)
>>1219483The Swarmeli gets better eyes and loses the tail, as it is now fully terrestrial.
>>1241151Region 1 is to be called destrozada
>>1241374We do have polar creatures, they're just in the ocean.
Some of the basal hawa develop a thin coat of short, sharp bristles to make them less palatable to predators.
>>1219090The Cave Bryum increases its surface area by budding off clones of itself, the lowest of which bears fruit. This allows it do chemosynthesize more, balancing out the increase in size.
The Muddy Haaga gets longer legs to make walking through swamps easier, and (re)grows spikes on its carapace to deter the Bog Halikot.
Alrighty folks, the Event that will impact life on our two Moon Worlds from the Late Magedivatian Era onwards is now upon us. '''''[Celestial Event]''''' '''Fate Lies in The Unknown'''Nearly a 150 million years have passed since life took its pioneering step from simple multicellular life, into flourishing Biospheres on the Moon Worlds of Janus and Rienia. Life on both worlds has seen many violent events that have tested and charted the course of life and their host Moon Worlds.Drawing into the Late Magedivatian Era the echoes of time and the world begins to shift once more on our young Moon Worlds. Life continues on unaware of the subtle forces at play that may one day bolster life, or lead to its ruination. And then their are the forces that linger in the far reaches of galaxy that lie in wait, watching for their opportunity.So here's the deal fellow creators, this next Event, the Celestial Event that will impact both worlds will fall into your hands to decide. Five potential outcomes that will forever change the course of life on Janus and Rienia, and the fate of these worlds is in your hands.==Event Detail/Rules==> Each player rolls 3 d6s. You may reroll a single d6 to cancel out one of your own rolls.> The event rolled the most will be the winning outcome for this World Event.> Life will be able to continue evolving and growing across the Moon Worlds up until the end of the the Magedivatian Era. Then whatever event is chosen will take effect.> The details of said event will be kept mostly secret up until the day of its occurrence.==The World Events==> 1-2 = Bad End: Life on both Janus and Rienia will face another trial by fire, in addition to the loss of the Base Organisms.> 3 = Forgotten to Time: After living amongst advanced life for so long, with just a few short generations the Base Organisms of Janus and Rienia will disappear forever.> 4 = A Whisper From Beyond: A Mysterious and Extraterrestrial Event will take place. Will it be good or bad?> 5 = Good End: Life on Janus and Rienia continues its Golden Age into the next Era, with its Base Organisms still thriving.> 6 = The Nomad Comes: A Mysterious and Extraterrestrial Event that will bring with it positive and exotic changes to Janus and Rienia.Also incase anyone needs to know, you can still create organisms at this time, although rolling for this Event is heavily advisedGood lucks dudes, and may your rolls be favorable.

The colonial hawa >>1227123 grow gradually more protective of their colony's collonyum, becoming aggressive towards other animals.This pressures the basal hawa, which gives rise to a new species. The false colonist hawa crudely imitates the colonial hawa in order to fool their primitive eyes and graze on protected collonyum without hindrance. To that end, it develops large green blotches, grows larger and even develops fake eyestalks.
>>1240342Due to competition from the Colonial Hawa, the Long Hawa migrates to the open ocean, feeding mostly off of free-floating basal Bryum but stealing a bite of Collonyum when possible. Without the protection that their previous lifestyle afforded, they are extremely vulnerable to predation. Taking advantage of their high speed and wide fins, the Long Hawa develop the technique of jumping out of the water and gliding for several minutes to escape danger.
The Scotera gets even better plate armor, fusing the separate scales into a single shell which it can withdraw into for protection. The eye shrinks to accommodate this.
>>1226566The Tempestuous's fins grow larger and more ornate, allowing it to maneuver and accelerate slightly better. Its head-plate also extends backwards, providing some protection but also making it look larger and more healthy to potential mates.
>>1244346still don't get the size difference.
>>1232995The Reagalkilot evolves even more and thicker fur to isolate it further from the cold of the arctic north.>>1244397It's basically arbitrary, could've been the other way around. A reason might be that the males don't waste energy and time on fighting other males, etc, thus being able to grow larger than their female counterparts.
>>1227123The Colonial Hawa evolves an extended mouth, allowing it to quickly strike creatures who get to close to the collonyum while having its body remaining mostly hidden.
I wish I could contribute but sadly (for whatever reason) 4chan has decided I'm no longer alloved to save files as png's, I'm only alloved to save them as html documents (????)if any one knows how to fix this, please hit me up, I'm sick of taking screenshots and having to manually fill every pixel whenever I want to make an evolution
>>1219195The Ruby Kelp begins to store its seeds in small, hard pods, which are covered in a sticky wax to get picked up by passing animals, usually Melscorp descendants.
>>1244714Do you have Discord? If you do join the server, and ask for image resources from me or anyone else willing to share there.
>>1244714Can you just drag the image to your desktop?
>>1244736holy shit, thats so dumb it actually worked, your a life saver!
>>1244747don't mention it! now time to werk!>>1237640the lesser melscorp, due to being out competed in life as a detretarian by the >>1241613 in warm tropical regions, the species gradually migrates to knodge, similar the the shivralsa before it. here it finds a plentiful supply of brilliantly preserved dead plant and animal matter due to the extreme cold freezing it. as a result it develops its body to better suit the cold, developing strong leaping back legs for launching it over rocky terrain, and a thick coating of white fluff.
>>1237608Some Melsopede begin inhabiting the large fields of Ruby Kelp. They mainly feed on the tubers of the kelp, as well as the occasional Petroc. The large amount of iron in their diet changes the coloration of their skin, and they get larger jaws to help dig up and chew the roots.
So in all likelihood this thread will be archived in the next 12-24 hours, so I'll just get to mentioning this now.Just gonna put this out there now that the next thread will likely not go up for another 3-5 days after that point. This is mostly due to having to "reinvent" some map features for the next threads that will again be focused specifically on Region 1 of Moon World Janus.So sit tight, and don't panic if you don't see a new thread until sometime this weekend, or early next week.Until then dudes.
>>1219183In response to the arrival of the Plains Melsopede, the Petrand evolves serrated edges on its leaves to discourage other organisms coming near them. They also grow a ring of leaves around their spores, to ward off opportunistic Scotera.
>>1220030Some Northern Hawkie, taking advantage of their burrowing habit, adopt an almost entirely underground existence underneath the fields of Ruby Kelp and Petrand. They eat the roots and tubers of both plants, and gain several minor changes to assist in this. First, their tongue becomes rougher to scrape through dense, fibrous flesh more easily; and second, they lose the lesser, anterior eye cluster (the rear eyes are kept because they are able to assist in digging I guess). Also, they lose pigmentation, hence the name.
A species of Petrand takes advantage of the fact that Rienia currently has no desert herbivores and grows several times larger. They gain a very large but fairly shallow root network, allowing them to capture all moisture that they can, and get thin, sprawling leaves which are coated in a thick layer of wax to prevent moisture loss.
