It's time for an evogame, this time with a twist! This is going to be an evogame much like the ones you're used to, with the small difference that there is a supernatural element in the form of 'Null Light', which will allow you guys to do some less-than-normal stuff. The idea is that this supernatural stuff is treated like any evolutions that means it should develop gradually, be internally consistent and follow the rules established for it.The Setting:There is something strange about planet SII-2453-0. Having exited a period of prolonged volcanic activity, life has emerged in its unlit oceans, first plants, then herbivores, then scavengers and carnivores. This fact alone is not yet strange, but coupled with the fact that SII-2453-0 is a Rogue planet, receiving scarcely enough light from the far away stars to facilitate the faintest glow upon its surface, it makes for quite the oddity. It appears that the energy the plants consume and that keep the planet at an acceptable temperature for life comes not from the stars, but from within. Something lies within that planet, something that craddles its molten core, and which gives off an energy unlike any other in the known universe. The thing was dramatically dubbed 'It-that-dwells-bellow', and the energy it sent out 'Null Light', on account of its particles sharing many qualities with photons, with the exception of lacking a visible spectrum. The plants on SII-2453-0 have learned to synthesize it, and pass it on to the food chain they are at the bottom of. Soon however, the peculiar energy manifested itself in peculiar ways...
>>3083697How to play:• Open an image of a species in MS Paint, or your editor of choice• Make one evolutionary change to that species (try to turn off anti-alialising when drawing)• 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 aren't necessary, but are encouraged.• Nothing too outlandish. Anything incredibly silly or outlandish will not be considered a canon species 95% of the time.• Between evolutions using 'Null Light' (see bellow) any given ID should try to make at least one evo without it. This is not a hard and fast rule, but it's a suggestion meant to prevent power creep.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. • This includes 'supernatural' evolutions, which must flow naturally from what has been established before, just as normal evolutions would. It is not permissible to just say 'and now they can shoot lightning' without internally and evolutionarily consistent explanation.• From time to time I will update an Phylogeny Chart so you can track your progress• Also from time to time, random world events will occur• Rules for Extinction will be supplied with the first extinction event.Supernatural stuff:• NULL LIGHT is the source of everything supernatural in this evo game. It can be converted into usable energy through photosynthesis and is passed on when the plant is eaten. • There are so far TWO known effects of Null Light ingestion: Generation/Access to pocket dimenstions and The physical manifestation of consciousness (rudimentary as it may be) as ectoplasma. Pocket dimensions are generally corossive for biological matter in them. Ectoplasma is a white, gooey substance slightly lighter than water which flows freely in conscious beings and quickly decomposes into Null Light when no longer in a living organism.• (Almost) each starting species has a unique way of using one of these peculiarities. To make evos using them, you will have to work off of those just as you would work off of any 'natural' trait.
>>3083699here's a group picture of the starting organisms, single images to come
>>3083703The Thyrav is an algae which drifts with the ocean current and which is ripped apart by said currents when it grows too large, facilitating reproduction. While it has no unusual abilities itself, its consumption of Null Light makes it the carrier of the energy which fuels the strangeness on SII-2453-0.
Imash are tiny herbivores which feed on Thyrav. They have four tentacles they use for movement of average speed and to move food to their mouths. When they feel threatened, they can slip into a pocket dimension for a short period of time. This only works if there is one available, and can only be done for short periods of time as trans-dimensional stays are corrosive to biological matter.
Irrisim are small slug like creatures which feed on the dead of other species. They use their eye spot to distinguish dark and light as well as to detect disapating ectoplasm (departing souls).
Saggeth are carnivores which can store ectoplasm of previously killed prey to use as a speed boost. They use two hardened, tooth-like structures at their mouth to bite off chunks of larger prey like Bloths.
And lastly:Bloths are large omnivores without any sensory organs which compensate for this weakness by being able to store huge amounts of nutrients for the long periods of time between happening upon food. This they achieve by generating a pocket dimension within them which they use as a large second stomach. Since transdimensional stays are corrossive to biological matter, this is only a temporal meassure. They move across the ocean floor using stubby apendages.
>>3083710some Irrisim develop a longer view on life.
>>3083714the bloth develops thicker skin with occasional callous like protrusions.
>>3083724forgot the bloth.
>>3083711Some Saggeth specialize in hunting the bloth and develop a specialized mouth that can latch onto their protrusions. They are the planet's first parasites.
Oh and I forgot: If you wanna chat about this or other evogames, we've got a discord: https://discord.gg/6GhaYt
>>3083707Imash become more adept at dimensional manipulation. Some will use an even smaller variant of the pocket dimension to carve off chunks of Thyrav which they will then leave in the dimension long enough to corrode the matter as a sort of proto stomach.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWZnqNM-Gvw
>>3083705Thyravs become elastically mobile when exposed to any form of light or null light, with the motion more exaggerated the greater the source of light. Curiously, some Thyravs will become entangled with one another at a quantum level on occasion. The union is short lived, but seems to result in a form of genetic synchronization between the two organisms.Quantum Horizontal gene transfer.
Some Thyrav develop phosphorous crystal structures in parts of their bodies. Their glowing traits are only incidental however, the more important aspect being the structural cohesion that comes with the rigid molecular structure. Now known as Glowravs, these organisms grow much larger than before, reducing the risk of being swallowed whole.
>>3083707>>3083751"You are what you eat" is an old and sometimes true proverb, and for Imashes, that means getting your nutrients from quantum-entangled sources has some really strange effects. While the other herbivores don't really notice any difference beyond a slightly increased risk of cancer when feeding on Entangled Thyrav, the deleterious effects of being in a pocket dimension cause a much more noticeable change in the Imash. Entire sections of their chromosomes become entangled with those of other creatures, of other species even, and their lessened stability allows them to change into copies of those foreign sections. Often, this results in the Imash gaining horrible, useless tumors, but rarely a functional organ will be formed, and passed down to the next generation.This new form of Imash, with it's often outlandish and ungainly appearance, has been named the Strange Imash by our researchers.
>>3083731The Saggetb develops a pair of simple pits filled with chemical receptors, used to help it find prey.
>>3084086Some of them develop large sacks on top to store nutrients inbetween feedings.
>>3083705While actual solar light is less than plentiful, it is still enough for some Thyrav to subsist off of. These Thyrav must float along the surface of Thadoz's oceans, particularly along the equator, where the meager sunlight is strongest.Because of their lower Null-Light ingestion, they produce far less supernatural quantities that other species seek out.
WORLD EVENT before I go to sleepEight gigantic, strange pillars of obsidian, curved inwards much like claws surround roughly evenly a point at the equator. Despite their unusual positioning, these islands of sorts are made of mundane material for the most part, some silicone compounds and other materials making up the bulk of it. As so much on this world however, there seems to be some Null Light in play here, calcified so to speak, dormant within the blackened glass.Some 50 million years after the advent of life on the planet, around these obelisks, dark clouds begin to gather, and soon lightning erupts as they, like giant lightning rods, attract the electric discharge of the clouds, conducting them into the ocean.These storms, lasting days and sometimes weeks, never more than a month apart, do not cease for years. Around the obelisks (the area in the yellow line) electric charge runs through the surface level of the ocean. around it, and along the equator, the discharge of energy warms up the water.The result is an electric milieu around the obsidian obelisks, and a warming in the equatorial seas. The greatest benefactor of this is the >>3084216 Thyrav-photo, which prospers in the warmer waters, forming great colonies there.Any organism capable of harnessing electrical charge and organisms reliant on warm environment would prosper.
If only I could draw...
>>3084378you don't have to be able to draw. If you have an idea, scribble it onto one of the evos you wanna modify. Just make sure you save as png and don't use antialiasing so that others can work with it and turn your concept into artwork
>>3084386it's when your paint strokes get smoothed out, and the pixels aren't clearly visible. see pic related.It makes filling in ugly and working off of a line with the same colour difficult. It's basically artifacting on purpose for a smoother line.
>>3084415so its when the edges of what i draw have pixels of slightly different color? how do i avoid that?
>>3084435many programs, such as paint.net (which I recommend using for stuff like this, it's like paint with layers and options) have options to turn it off. Another way of doing it, albeit a more cumbersome one, is using the pencil tool.
i have a idea for the bloth a bigger more even tendril feet for it so it can move faster and dig slightly in the sea bottom
>>3084480well draw it and others will iterate on it and make it more artful if that's a concern
>>3083707Due to some Ishams being born with slightly bigger digestive sacks, they end up floating just above the seafloor (less than a milimetre); their tentacles still touching the seafloor. They still use their tentacles to push and pull against stuff, slowly propelling themselves. Another result of the mutation is that they are up-side-down now.
>>3083714the some of the blorth by cycling the content of there pocket dimension stomach and there 3 dimensional stomach has freed up much energy that was used for digestion to movement this allowed the faster ones with better limbs to reproduce more and eat more (my first ever evo)
>>3083710A species of irrisim have developed a coating that reflects Light and Null light. This creates a weakly offensive beam used for finishing off dying creatures, at the cost of some vision and stealth.
>>3084574"beam" is misleading; its more like frying an ant with an hour glass, but hitting the soul
>>3084535let me edit the name its now the bloth dragger it drags itself forward now making it slightly faster then other bloth same storage but it now can move longer and faster this means it can shove even more food in them self
Good morning everybody, I bring the first Phylogeny Chart.
This EVO is going places! Dark places... Signing in.
>>3083711While some subgroups of Saggeth grow into parasites, those who live in warmer waters aren't able to hold on to more energetic creatures. Instead they grow grow segments in their tail, allowing them to alter the direction and pressure of the ectoplasm jet, making them faster and more responsive to movement in the water.
>>3083720The Irrisim stretch out parts of their body in order to some floating food chunks. These portrusions grant them some limited manipulation which they use to guide hard-to-reach food to their mouths.
>>3084025While the Strange Imash benefit from the stolen organs they form, the tumors they create during the process are armfull in an unusal way. Quite a few of them steal nutrients from the Imash and grow muscle tissue on their own, in similarity to the the Imash tendrils. When grown a certain size, some of the tumors will forcefully tear away from the Imash, leaving the creature with open wounds. The tumor wiggles through the sea for a few days, seemingly to harras other creatures, before dying of starvation. The tumor-beings aren't able to sustain themselves yet, but they occur often and seem to have a will to live...
>>3084480Here's something that sets a dangerous precedent. I'm gonna illustrate your idea. And take it a step further. Some Bloth develop longer tendrils which they can dig into the ocean floor: And there they remain. Now stationary, they have to expend even less energy than before and suck in seawater in the hope of inhaling Thyrav and Isham.They are now known as Stloth
seeing as there's not much action right now, roll me a 1d8 for the next world event.

>>3086687Ho Boy. Alright boys, event will probably hit in ~6 hours. if not, it won't hit till tomorrowEvolve away until thenalso, >>3086688 if you're not in the discord yet, I'd recommend joining because I really like your evos
>>3086615Stloth that dwell near the large obsidian spikes develop better filter feeding capability. Their pocket dimension rapidly pulses water in and out of their body cavity, dragging along with it any biological material. The mouth of the Stloth becomes highly adapted to spewing and taking in large volumes of water.
>>3086612Imasite primes are still birthed from the Imash, but live much longer, feeding passivly off the electrical currents of the obsidian tower. Their raw electrical sensing organs allow them to flock towards the life giving electricity in great numbers. The longer they survive the more they grow.
>>3086606The Irrisim develop a more mobile neck and complex soul sensing optic.
>>3084611Draggers develop a secondary lobe to allow for greater food storage. The Saggets do not mind.
>>3084514The shami develop further down the path of righteous walking, dragging their floating bodies along the currents of ether and seawater. mostly seawater.
>>3086810so its like a butt that shines with a inner light in each cheek? with a turkey neck mouth?
+WORLD EVENT+The storms ebb and flow almost seasonally for millions of years, the obelisks sucking up the lightning like sponges, until their frequency and severity decreases gradually one cycle. Now still the area around the obsidian islands was one of heavy lightning storms, much more than any other area of the planet, but the near constant barrage simmers down to a mere atmospheric oddity. The reason for this, it seems, that enough charge had been supplied - For now starts a process of tectonic shift, as the obsidian underbelly of the equatorial pylons begins to emerge from the seas. The immense tectonic changes over a short few million years affects all other land masses as well, as their continental plates are moved, and the friction between them erect mountain chains topped with massive volcanoes which spew ash and fire into the atmosphere.The result of this is a new topology on SII-2453-0. It also results in much larger, obsidian islands around the equator, whole landmasses running to a crooked point like fingers contorted in agony.And there are of course also the volcanoes. For a planet reliant on sun, the ash cover might have proved catastrophic for life (and it still does, for Photo-Thyravs), but on SII-2453-0 it means two things: For one the reflection of Null-Light, making its concentration stronger on the surface, especially on the little reflective rock of solid land. And for another, it supplies huge amounts of Carbon dioxide which supplies the plants of the planet with ample resources for (Null-)photosynthesis.Consequences:• New Habitat: Volcanic Wastelands (see map)• Plants may grow up to ten times their size in a single evo for the next 24 hours (with an upper limit of 2 meters except for colonies which have no upper size limit)• Plants based on photosynthesis (>>3084216and >>3084013) must evolve to adapt within the next 24 hours or be subject to an extinction dice roll.
>>3086946also, here's the phyl chart.Also also, I'm accepting names for land masses and oceans. If you wanna name a thing, just tell me.
>>3084574The Shine Irrisim develops a second eye, so that it can both see things and shoot things. To protect it's own vision from it's FRICKIN LASER BEAMS, it has also gained a retractable sheath over it's seeing eye.
>>3086972Also it gets a hole between the eyes. What is that hole for? Even I do not know, but it gives it a perpetual look of adorable disgust so it's a net positive in any case.
>>3084611a offshot from the bloth dragger is the Bloth burster its dexterous mouth lengthened and enlarged so it could eat even more food the head sways around and feels around until it bumps into something that fits inside its mouth they eat quite literally anything that fits inside there mouth this means inside the dimensional stomach it stores quite a bit of trash in it and if not digestible or organic gets trapped in the dimensional stomach and stuck inside until the death of the bloth where the dimensional stomach collapses into the 3rd dimension where if it ate enough things it could not digest inflates violently with the material and bursting into a kind of explosion of rocks and sand often killing the predator that killed it this allows them to store more mass in the physical realm and there for making them fatter and longer
>>3087002we could maybe call it a nose?
>>3087012don't forget to change the size on the image if you change the size of the organism
>>3087032okay i just could not decide what size it should have been
>>3084013due to the sudden lack of light and to quite a bit of luck with recessive genes, the much higher concentration of null-light and the more abundant nutrients from ash and carbon dioxide, there has been a explosion of the new SUPERIOR genes that have quickly spread to the others due to the Quantum Horizontal gene transfer of the glowrav the new DARK GLOWRAV all the nutrition and sudden lack of competition they have grow into huge tangledmasses of SUPERNATURAL DELICIOUS PLANTS that mainly and really only subsists on the null-light but the genes for photosynthesis stubbornly stay due to how deeply Rooted it is in the genes and and the most and biggest masses of DARK glowrav get tangled up around the stone beaches of the continents they contain a big conetration of super natural nutrition and cytoplasm makes them a great food for all life 1.no competition+more nutrition+ more energy+Quantum Horizontal gene transfer=REPRODUCING FASTER THEN A BUNNY ON VIAGRA and spreading like the black plague of plant genes AND GETTING HOUGH and becoming the most fucking abundant food source (edit this freely qm senpai i am a ranty mess that dont really prof reads or us punctuation or grammar like a filthy peasant)
>>3087055it got Hugh and it has no competition and it spread to nearly all the glowrav with the Quantum Horizontal gene transfer and its now the main food that really likes to tangle up around the continents due to the even higher concentration of null-light
this is a really cool thread but i can't draw for shit
>>3087071give me ideas and i will try to draw
>>3087071see>>3084383and>>3084490Heck, I can redraw your evo if you ask me nicely, but you have to do at least a sketch yourself
>>3087055>>3087063the purple light is a mix of null-light and light so now you have something like a star filled sky in the sea that floats near the surface and most of the sea so for anything with eyes its going to be a quite easy treat to find
>>3087055wait is this gen 2 or 3? because its directly related to the glowrav?
>>3087085this'd be gen 2 as glowrav is gen 1 and thyrav is gen 0
>>3087086then should i edit it?>>3087063the light can also feed other plants both light and null-light
>>3086794Imasite Alphas are the mature form of the Imasite Primes. Like the Primes, they feed passively off of the electrical currents of the obsidian tower. They grow more small tendrils on their body as they age, which become brittle and sharp. Their tail splits, allowing for greater mobility and the ability to grab things.
>>3087088>then should i edit it?no it's totes fine>>3087115this is extremely cool and absolutely legal, but keep in mind that so far Imasites have no independent reproduction and will have thus have a hard time evolving in an adapting fashion without simultaniously helping Imash.A way for Imasites to influence which genes are propagated is still to be established.
>>3087122>A way for Imasites to influence which genes are propagated is still to be established.I've already thought of that.
>>3087129>""""""life""""""I like it
qm i have a idea for a plant behavior and growth that i dont know how to draw its like this they merge and tangle into a ball made from dark glowraw with the shinny part pointed out with a main big leaf pointing out from it with minor leafs pointing out from cracks between the shiny bumps looking like a weird leafy alien pineapple with crystal like bumps that glow can you draw something form this concept? it beyond my skills
>>3087138I'll see what I can do tomorrow.
>>3087138and i have several ideas how it can evolve one path is the crystal bumps becoming spiky and having it evolve into a weird floating sea-urchin with a leaf/hookanother one is that ball growing huge/heavy and sinking to the bottom and having something like a sea tree or sea grass grow from the glowing balls another one is like a weird flat ufo fomred coconut that just floats on the surface with a mini tree or bush on the top possibly with tendrils hanging down another idea is having all these evolutions wash up on the beach and the shallows forming something like a reef and making the foundation for future land plants
>>3084166>>3087115After accidentally ingesting Imasite Primes, Saggeths begin to develop small tumours across their body.
>>3087150another one is them forming into tiny crystal bubble with plants inside to protect them from the organic digesting dimension and most lifeforms
>>3087151>>3087115Imasite Betas are very different from their Imasite Alpha cousins. After infecting a Saggeth, they developed mouths similar to the Saggeth's, as well as the ability to dash quickly by expelling ectoplasm. They retain many of their traits from their Imasite Alpha cousins, such as the 3 tails and sharp spines. Once they mature, they seek out Saggeths. They use their sharp spines to break the Saggeth's skin and crawl inside using their tails. Once inside, they latch on with their mouths and start the process to produce more tumours. The tumours drain the Saggeth's ectoplasm and take it for themselves, leaving the Saggeth to die. They then burst forth, already fully mature, and use that ectoplasm to find more Saggeths.
>>3087196Imasite Beta and Saggeth obviously not on the same scale.
Saggeth mutation ideas: -develop side holes that shoot out ectoplasm makes it faster - Bigger beak like jaw to scoop up more to eat-ectoplasm dots to attract prey hypnotic quality "charm spots"+bioluminescence
>>3084013Due to the increase in natural predators, the phosphorus crystals in the Glowrav become sharper and pointer, making them even harder to digest. They are known as Glowshars.
>>3083710Rirrisim are Irrisim that have developed the ability to retract themselves into a ball and roll along the ocean floor, allowing for much higher movement speeds.
>>3084025Not all tumours that the Strange Imash receive are harmful. The Oddmash is a Strange Imash that managed to pass on its tumours to its offspring, resulting in the tumours forming useful organs. This tendrils are stronger and longer than the ones on its rear and can regenerate quickly after being damaged. They are primarily used for self-defence against predators.
>>3087365Forgot the image.
>>3086816Finally gaining the ability to walk upright, Shuffis have thicker and stronger tendrils than Shamis, allowing for faster movement along the ocean floor.
>>3086615Some Stloth develop narrower nozzles that allow for several improvements. They can more precisely suck up prey, and they can also push away predators with bursts of high-pressure water.
>>3083741These Imash utilize their pocket dimension to create void pockets in front of themselves to dart through the water, allowing for sudden bursts of speed. They also tend to void the pocket dimension when threatened, leading to a horrifying spray of partially corroded plant matter and sea water.
>>3087418idea intake valves/vents close to the bottom
>>3083707Umash have longer and stronger tentacles than Imash, and can use those tentacles for better self-defence and to reach more food at once.
>>3087432what would they be used for?
>>3083705Shyrav is Thyrav that lives in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean, where there is no light at all except null-light. It only lives on null-light.
>>3083705>>3086946Basically just Thyrav that's ten times bigger and has a slower growth rate.
>>3087570Feel free to redraw this one lol
>>3084025Entirely encased in hard skin resulting from the many tumours inherited from its Strange Imash parents, the Harmash has a great defence, but at the price of being much slower and heavier.
>>3084166The Black Saggeth is the same as the Saggeth, but has longer fins and is darker. Its chemical sensors are also larger and more sensitive.
>>3086801Irrisim develops more protrusions as well as a tail with a webbed end.
What are the requirements for something to live on land or be airborne?
>>3087618The smooth shell of the Smoothy Harmash provides better hydrodynamics and is harder for predators to grasp
Dammit>>3083705Thralrav releases small quantities of consciousness as it falls apart, which can influence hungry organisms to "back off" before it decomposes
>>3083705Sweet death is a form of algae that can synthesize "arcane sugar" using null-photosynthesis. This posses drastically slow the growth rate of the algae but make it completely inedible to unadapted consumers. ARCANE SUGARIn the simplest of terms: arcane sugar is a Disaccharide which suspends and stabilizes a molecular sized point of extradimensional portal. As this extradimensional space is almost universally corrosive to organic matter, any organism that digests arcane sugar will have exposed tissue dissolve into nothingness, which is almost always fatal to the creature. Once the extradimensional point is destabilized, it will only last for a few moments before ceasing to exist.
>>3083727Blue Bloth have callous protrusions which contain a mild toxin to dissuade predators.
>>3087476The Umash's pocket dimension ability and long tentacles synergize as it develops a way to create portals both in and out of the pocket dimension, extending its reach. It now can gather food in crevices and around corners, as well as spook predators. The popular name for it is the "Portal Umash".
>>3083720>>3088221The Irrisim develop a symbiotic relationship with the Sweet Death algae. Becoming darker in color to blend with the sea floor, this new Sweet Irrisim stays motionless and waits for herbivores to prey on the Sweet Death on its back. The herbivores inevitably die, and the Irrisim feasts on their souls.
>>3084216I really don't have the time for this, classes are being absolute hell right now, but I want to try to save this thing. Sorry I can't draw a proper edit, so take a quick sketch with the built in drawing tool. Hope someone can touch it up later down the line.Two major changes to the Photo-Thyrav. A) Their chloroplasts (or analog) change pigment to absorb more of the red-wavelength light that manages to make its way through the ash layer. B) Over the course of their evolution to survive on the surface of the ocean, they created larger, sturdier paddies of Photo-Thyrav, able to float on the ocean surface more effectively.Basically, think rudimentary lily-pads.Gen: 2Diet: PhotosynthesisHabitat: Ocean SurfaceSize: 0.5 - 3 cm, but very thin.

>>3083741due to the derth of imash, the pocket dimension dimension has been running out of real estate.> When they feel threatened, they can slip into a pocket dimension for a short period of time. This only works if there is one availableto counteract this, some imash have developed a slimmer form to fit into tighter dimensions. these imash also have denser skin to withstand null corrsion at a smaller size.

>>3087002>>3087015With it's singular nostril and lung, a set of organs not possessed by any other lifeform on the planet, The Shine Irrisim has gained access to an amazing ability: holding it's breath. Combined with their capability for sight, the Irrisim now have a very successful defensive strategy: when they spot a predator from far away, they climb out of the water and onto the shore, waiting for the enemy to lose interest, which, given that every creature so far has only a very basic nervous system not capable of keeping attention for long, is not that much time. While holding breath for a few seconds is easy and there's no terrible, horrible sunlight to burn it's delicate skin off, the lack of moisture is a serious problem. The fact some Irrisim shriveled and died while waiting for their assaultant to go away was a big evolutionary incentive for the loss of water permeability in skin, and the abundant amountsof delicious Irrisim jerky left completely untouched on shore was a big evolutionary incentive for holding breath long enough to enjoy it's taste.

>>3086601putting a bit of diversity into the Saggeths why notThe Sharreth are Saggeths which are unperturbed by devense mechanisms such as >>3088137 and instead elect to just hoover up anything small enough to fit into their enlarged mouths
>>3087426Some subspecies of Imash begin to develop looser skin which allows the Imash to detect disturbances in the water. These Imash have been dubbed the Violet Imash.
+WORLD EVENT+"Flesh"As plants become more boyent and travel on the ocean surface more often, they frequently wash ashore, especially in bays and seas where the currents would have them rotate within its coastlines, maximizing the probability of running ashore. This means that Imash of all kinds - but for some reason Strange Imash most of all - will sometimes approach the coast and nibble from the stranded Thyrav.It is not quite clear what happened next. There is speculation that it must have to do with the gene entanglement effect of some thyrav species, because it all happened at once. Another theory is that it has to do with overreliance on pocket dimensions, and that it is the result of an expelling of all the living matter that had corroded in them over the eons.As nebulous as the cause may be, the effect is clear: Imash flesh spans the coasts of the bays of the continents, writhing tentacles and pulsating nutrient sacs grinding up against the rocky shores. There is no apparent reproduction in the flesh, which seems to act as one dumb and blind organism, beyond a tumor like growth wherever the plant intake allows it that some lucky tentacle shoves into a nearby mouth.The flesh is kept alive seemingly only by its modest needs. Its composition is the bare minimum of Imash biology, with little nutrient value but little need of maintenance. Nevertheless, un(?)lucky stretches of flesh die off as they cannot be supplied with nutrients, turning the coastlines into noxious wastes of carrion.This is flesh. Consequences:• New Habitat: Flesh (see map)• Carnivores may grow up to five times their size per evo to a maximum of 50 cm for the next 24 hours
>>3088644Correction: All carnivorous creatures, that includes omnivores, have the buff.
>>3088646Do scavengers have the buff as well? And are you going to make another phyl chart?
>>3088674>Do scavengers have the buff as well?if they are in the flesh habitat, yes. which I ALSO forgot to mention: the buff only applies to animals who have Flesh at least partially as their diet>And are you going to make another phyl chart?yes
>>3087115>>3087129Hold my shadow draught, I've got this.The sudden appearance of flesh out of thin air, it becomes clear that pocket dimensions have some means of transporting biological matter. The Imasites, being born of the pocket-dimension-sensitive Imash have found a link back to their original hosts through the nul light. However faint, a fully grown Imasite leaves a kind of genetic imprint in the void, which resurfaces in new tumors grown on the Imash. Alpha Imasites growing into adulthood are fewer, because the electrical currant on which they feed has died down. But in a violent and not-at-all-symbiotic way, they have started reproducing through the Imash. Indecently, they have become more gross and fleshy. Call me out if I've gone too far.
>>3088733I'm calling you out.You are using pocket dimensions as parallel dimensions which they are explicitely not. They are localized and independent of each other. Your Imasites will have to travel back to their host if they want to implant in them their genetic material, or 'impregnate' as it were a pocket dimension an Imash happens to enter.But the latter would still have the problem of that genetic material corroding over time.Sorry to quench this awesome beast, but I gotta be strict here or everything goes.
FUCK this is some work
>>3086601>>3088644The Flaggeth is a Saggeth that has larger, more developed fins on the side of its body. It can use those fins to generate enough lift to temporarily fly above the ocean surface. However, it is not able to do this for long, for several reasons. 1. its ectoplasm supply can run out very quickly, and 2. it dries out in the open air. The Flaggeth uses its newfound flight to launch itself up out of the water and onto the Imash flesh on the coastlines. There, it will eat until it is full or until it starts to dry out, and then flies back into the water.
>>3088756but check ut this beauty
Just a couple corrections:>>3088756>Blue Bloths (>>3088238) are from >>3083727 not >>3083714>This Stloth variant (>>3087418) is from >>3086615 not >>3086788>>3088761>Harmash (>>3087618) are from Strange Imash (>>3084025) not normal Imash (>>3083707)Everything else looks perfect.
>>3088744My bad, I got confused by this baby >>3088265That'll be a wicked shadow-hangover.
>>3088791Ah wait you forgot Smoothy Harmash.
>>3088793yeah this dude just uses pocket dimensions as short cuts. It reaches in, and opens another opening elsewhere, but still localized in the realspace representation of the pocket.I encourage you though to make the Infecting Alpha into a creature that seeks out Imash to impregnate themw ith their genetic code mundane style>>3088791I'll correct it for next chart
>>3088808Can I use the same art? Because if so:The Imash, still seeking out prey to eat and absorb genetic material, have found fully grown Imasites a rather easy catch. Upon digesting it, the Imash will again grow new parts, but all of them are Imasite-tumors, bearing genetic material from the eaten alpha. It started out with a few lucky kills, but as evolution goes, the genetic code for "acting as a prey for Imash" is now thoroughly embedded in the Imasite gene pool. Still, the appear increasingly more gross and fleshy.
>>3088825>Can I use the same art?of course. works great.
>>3088137Sharmash are Smoothy Harmash that have six tendrils instead of four and have longer bodies that are even more hydrodynamic.
>>3087402The Sukki is stouter than the Shuffi, being slightly less ovaloid and more spherical. This allows it better survive in the open air. On its tendrils are "feet"; nubs that act as simple suction cups. It walks out of the ocean to escape predators and eat coastal Thyrav. However, it can not last very long in the open air and must return to the water every once and awhile.
>>3087230The Glowpris can use its large phosphorous crystals to focus light to keep predators away. It is even more rigid than before and takes longer to grow and mature.
>>3088831Aight, thanks OP!
>>3088832>>3088847boys grow your evos, we're still so tiny
>>3088533With the new abundant Meat around, the Irrisim that had the ability to consume it flourished. Using two small, iron teeth, they are able to cut off small chunks that they swallow whole.
>>3087366>>3087365The Oddmashup has grown yet stranger, now incorporating even more foreign DNA and granted with an even wider array of disjointed, unrelated skills, the exact set varying between individuals.
>>3088177>>3088644Thralrav that washes up ontop of The Flesh begin using their special abilities to "tame" it. They begin rooting on the pores of the massive organisms, growing suspiciously similar to hair follicles, gaining the name of Follliclyrav. Although their powers of suggestion have grown much stronger, allowing them to live ontop of the flesh without being eaten by it, it seems they have been limited aswell, now exclusively working on controlling the giant behemoths that plague the shores of SII-2453-0. This may prove to be quite useful for any hervibores or omnivores that evolve to live on land, as they would have a steady supply of food.
>>3088847Sukki living on the flesh-covered shores evolve to make better use of the resources they have. They evolve a larger leg that has a pair of needle-like appendages on it. These have a dedicated pumping organ on them, that the Pthukki uses to suck fresh blood from The Flesh, stealing nutrients from it as at the same time they inject it with their own deoxygenated blood.They also take advantage of the new plants growing on the shorelines, living on the Folliclyrav patches aswell as eating them.
>>3088894How much are we allowed to increase our size each time?
is it too late to post a gen 1?
>>3089735it's never too late
the Imish evolved longer tentacles, not only to grab plants more easyly, but also to become faster and sense more things
nvm that was allready done
>>3089763Don't be discouraged. Redundancies appear in nature all the time. In fact, having different variations that are similar makes this even more authentic.
>>3088238Improving upon their defenses, blue Bloths evolve slightly more numerous protrusions, with a more thorn-like shape in order to cause more pain to predators.
>>3089598Reasonably. That means generally not more than double or maybe triple unless you have a good reason for it. Animals feasting of FleshTM right now can have spurious reasons for growing up to five times their size

Can someone make primitive terrestrial plants already? Otherwise we aren't going to get anywhere.
>>3087492suck in water to vent out on the top and possibly sand and stones to shoot out and you can vent out sending away stuff around the base and also suck in from the top to suck in food without interruption
>>3088177>>3087618Unlike their Smoothy Harmash and Sharmash relatives, the standard Harmash is at a disadvantage. With the development of Sharreth's that are capable of penetrating their defences and not being as smooth and hydrodynamic as their relatives, the Harmash needed something besides a hard shell to survive. So, they developed a symbiotic relationship with Thralrav. The Shymash has an even rougher shell than the Harmash, which is used to host Thralrav. The Thralrav keep the Shymash's predators away with their consciousness "back off" single in exchange for absorbing nutrients from the Shymash's shell.
>>3086810>>3088221The Bloth Chugger is a Bloth Dragger that has adapted to consuming Sweet Death. It uses it's secondary lobe (and second pocket dimension stomach in that lobe) to store the Sweet Death that it consumes. The pocket dimension has a filter that allows the nutrients to leave but the arcane sugar to remain. The arcane sugar eventually breaks down in the pocket dimension over time. If a Bloth Chugger is attacked, it empties it's pocket dimensions stomach through a vent in the top of its body and releases a dense cloud of arcane sugar everywhere around it. This is usually enough to deter predators, but it comes at the cost of damaging itself with the arcane sugar.
>>3086601Spaggeth are Saggeth that have further increased their manoeuvrability by having ectoplasm jets along their body.
>>3090457Done.>>3087418The Stlooolth is a Stloth with two more vents near the bottom of its body. It uses them to eject water so it can continuously suck in water from the larger top nozzle.
Feel free to request ideas, I'll try to make them as best as I can.
>>3089335Once the Flesh(tm) under it dies off, the average Folliclyrav dies as well, falling onto the ground and swiftly running out of water and nutrients.This is not the average Folliclyrav.This is Grass. It lives on land.
>>3090604Field Researcher's notes: the Grass isn't as harmless as it looks. Electrical shocks emanate from it, spread through a fine mist of highly conductive ectoplasm around it. Not only that, but Grass has an unusual mating mechanism, common to Thyrav descendants at this point. Instead of fusing the sperm and ovum of two individuals to make a third one, a singular individual obtains genetic code from a second one directly through quantum entanglement, then splits off a third individual. This proves quite handy, as without a way to spread physical seeds "traditional" gene exchange can be quite tricky.
>>3090604I'm guessing that the grass is living off of the decomposed flesh and later their decomposed relatives?
>>3090562The Bloth Hunter is a Bloth Chugger that has turned it's defense into an offense: using it's brand new ectoplasmatic nose, capable of detecting the trail of a consciousness, it locates it's prey, and using it's multiple Arcane Sugar cannons it quickly turns it into delicious sludge.
>>3090618For now it's ability to turn inorganic compounds into organic compounds through photosynthesis is not enough to support it fully, so some amount of underlying compost is necessary. However further generations may advance further and lose the requirement for detritus altogether.
Just checking in to say that the event will only be dropped tomorrow>>3090604>>3090612>Electrical shocks emanate from it, spread through a fine mist of highly conductive ectoplasm around it.This suggests that the grass has an at least very rudimentary brain-like organ, and even just to generate it. I should have caught that at the Tharlav already, but oh well.It will implicitely have a tiny nervous knot in it doing nothing but generating a bare minimum of ectoplasm. If anybody wants to evolve that more explicitely, I would be much oblidged
>>3090600Plants eventually developing a psychic hivemind
>>3090755That's a cool idea but I was thinking of simple changes each evolution.
>>3087032bloth burster develops a bigger mouth and develops and splits more proper legs from its weird stubby nub tendrils allowing them to move faster and much more safety over terrain and not getting stuck and starving this allows them to live longer find more food and grow slightly larger
>>3090880they evolved a water vent allowing them to suck more and longer
>>3090880a species split from the bloth burster developing a actually very good lumpy sensory skin layers close to a eye in that they can see movement and light/null-light and the lack or lessening of them this means they can see shadows this allows them to actually notice the food around and above them and not just what they are literally touching
>>3090900forgot the picture butthe idea is for this one to be less of a behemoth garbage truck eating anything it walks into and get a wider diet possibly
>>3090597idea make the spout wider and grow rings with sharp points inside it so it shreds everything it sucks in like a pre stomach allowing the void to easily digest and break it down for you with the new surface area on the things you eat
>>3090903a idea for this develop a four section beak on the end of that prehensile mouth and just snip and snap up anything moving or with high enough energy in it
>>3090909Done.>>3090597The Scrloooth is a Stloooth with a shorter and wider nozzle. Since it no longer needs the narrower nozzle to eject water, it has several rows of razor-sharp "teeth" that it uses to shred everything it ingests.
>>3088847Walkkis are the more evolved versions of Sukkis. They use their tendrils more like legs and have a larger body that can store more nutrients and water. This allows them to stay out of water for much longer periods of time, but they still need to return eventually. They are twice the size of a Sukki. Their primary diet is coastal Thyrav.
>>3091003what you think of armor or filter organs so you can eat EVERYTHING >>3090562 like this boi?
>>3091034where is the mouth? is it on the under side?
>>3091003or THICCen the cell walls to make it stronger or develop a eye ring or dots so it knows when it should SUCK
>>3088920get more of those teeth or more mouths or those seastar suction cup legs under you or armor
and someone please evolve the plants in a way so we can feed the great flesh beach like having big crystal disks that float on the waters surface concentrating and feeding on the lights or giving the lilypads velcrohooks or tendrils under it that tangle up
>>3090586Wraggeth are Spaggeth that are able to temporarily traverse on land. They have ectoplasm jets on their bottom so they can "walk" on land. They are larger than Spaggeth, being 2.0 cm long. They prey on Walkkis.
>>3091071what do u mean by that?
>>3091037Armour is a good idea. It would need a second pocket dimension stomach (it only has one right now) to be able to eat Sweet Death like the Bloth Chugger.>>3091049The ring dots wouldn't be too helpful, because it can no longer suck in the direction is chooses very well (since the nozzle is wide and shorter)>>3091041Honestly forgot about that, but yes I'm assuming it has a mouth on the centre on its bottom so it can crouch down to eat.
>>3091144I think they mean that we need bigger terrestrial plants on the coastlines. He's suggesting crystal disks from >>3088865to focus light to increase plant growth, and he's saying that >>3088302 should evolve a Velcro-like surface that allows making large groups.
i just made something i was going hamwild the shell you see in the corner the idea is at its next evolution it grows a shell that grows with its age the opening keeping the same posistion while the rest of the shell spirals and grows larger and kind of expanding its body inside the pocket dimension protected and having bone so it can basically walk anywhere and soon on land acting as a small jelly like thing to eat with a hard exploding shell in the middle if you crush it possibly after i cna somehow work in the arcane sugar creating a kind of shell of holding that dont collapse at death that oters can use and have future life marvel at or something i just made it and trying to come up some bullshit excuse to its creation and its a 2 AM creation its when the thoughts come
>>3083741the monomash is a Imash who's pocket dimension is perpetually open, but so narrow as to be two dimensional. Each generation saw the monmash grow more and more flat, simplified, flexible, and able to slip into the narrow cracks of reality. Somewhere along the line, an offshoot lost the ability to slip into the elsewhere, and instead perpetually rides the razor of a portal, slicing through larger objects with ease. What was once escape is now a weapon. In the murk of the shallows, unnatural glimmers of light can be seen escaping the wake ahead of the monomashes
>>3091170What did it evolve from? The base Bloth? >>3083714 or something more recent like >>3090903

>>3084574Risims use their weak spectral beam to act as a primitive form of echolocation or sight, seeing the souls of the living, and recently dead, the ambient dimensional ectoplasm giving depth to their world.Creatures who dwell amongst the Risims occasionally develop a strange form of undulating dimensional cancer.
>>3088302This time with marginally better art.The Photo-Thyrav have begun the evolution of a cohesive internal structure. No longer classified as the same species, these Thyrui are composed of three separate organs. Rather than all the cells staying together as one homogenous mass, cells have begun to specialize into 'core' veins that hold the plant together and transport nutrient, 'leafy' outgrowths that absorb more sunlight, and a rudimentary 'root' to provide greater stability and a way of filtering nutrient out of the surroundings.They maintain their positions on the ocean surface, where the dim sun shines brightest.
>>3091276Looks like a barnacle.
>>3091034>>3091142>>3090604Someone finally made land-based life thank god.
>>3086601Some Saggeth evolve more specialized organs for expelling ectoplasm.These siphons can withhold the ectoplasm for prolonged periods, and can compress themselves to rapidly accelerate itself to attack prey.
>>3091434>I swear this doesn't usually happen.
>>3091003>>3084025The Hsmyx features twin, but conflicting pocket dimensions, both of which are in near constant operation. Though tiny, the binary forces act as a violent secondary stomach, breaking down inorganic matter into bioavailable energy and nutrients, ectoplasm, and null light. Occasionally an Hsmyx will explode, usually on death, as it's body fails to manage the delicate balance required to exploit the rifts.
>>3091761I'm unclear on how or from what this evolved.
>>3091762It evolved from >>3084025, which has the ability to steal genes from other species through quantum entanglement, as well as >>3091003, from whom those genes were stolen.
+WORLD EVENT*"You could have prevented this"Flesh, as modest as they may be, still has needs - a need, anyway. Nutrients. Unsurprisingly though, few plants have supplied the quantities need to keep organisms the size of Flesh alive, and so, after millenia of a dire existence, they die, one by one. They leave behind carcasses of continental size. Soon, the organisms of the planet are feasting upon it once more, but as bacteria takes its own, a feast becomes a death trap, for toxic gasses of thousands upon thousands of tons of rotting flesh begin to fill the inner seas, putting serious pressure on the creatures living there and across the ocean where the gas travels.One stretch of flesh remains however: In the Bay of Meat, the Flesh has spontaneously adapted. While the requisite plants are not forthcoming, they have found a new way of getting their nutrients: Meat.Consequences:• FleshTM, where it is still alive, is now omnivorous• all organisms living on Flesh must make an extinction roll target number 6+ or go extinct.• all non-detrivorous organisms living on the shorelines, on the ocean surface or right bellow it have to make an extinction roll target number 3+ or go extinctEXTINCTION ROLLS - HOW TO:• Extinction rolls are required when extinction events occur.• Every ID has (in this case) 3 rolls to allocate. • They roll a 1d8 for any species they want to save, and if they meet the target number or above, the species survives.• Any species under threat of extinction whichis not rolled for, or which has no rolls that meet its target number will be extinct after I say so (normally about 24 hours after the event)• Until their extinction, these species can still be evolved and can thus adapt to the extinction event. EXCEPTION: An end-of-thread extinction event locks evos from the outset.
>>3088920The Land Irrisim have grown accustomed to terrestrial life, now that their coastal habitat has been rendered unlivable. Their lung now derives oxygen from air rather than water, and their skin has dried out almost completely. They still live near bodies of water however, as they are both the only sources of food and moisture for them, as well as the only places where they can birth their aquatic larvae.

It seems this species has abandoned comensalism in favour of a more symbiotic relationship, further refining it's "stream of consciousness" using it to stablish a primitive communication with it symbiont, rather than just giving it orders not to eat it. They also develop receptors on their now coily bodies, using them to constrict any species unlucky enough to be caught, and feed them to the Flesh. Although due to their size they are able to catch almost any species living on the Flesh, it seems the most common prey are plump, fat and old Phthukki that have grown too big and slow.

>>3091177(so this became a accepted evolution nice) anyways its has a inorgnaic kind of shell that acts as a stomach on the inside of the dimension pocket for the food not needed for survival stays in the shell until its pushed into the dimension and predigested the shell is extended quite a bit into the shell but the insides act like intestines pushing it in when it needs energy this better rationing of food allows it to live longer and grow bigger and with its sharp beak like jaw it can eat anything that fits inside its mouth and if it does not fit it just chews them right up
Sorry I've been behind on my research lads. I've had some time and uncovered some great abominations. And just in time for the end of the world, it seems.>>3087262The Rirrisin or 'Rirris' for short still holds some ground as a prominent bottomfeeder. With the increase in food from hunters above, they have found their tiny mouths, well, tiny. Over time their outer cellular wall has weakened, causing food bits to stick into it as they roll. Over many generations, the main mouth has decreased in size. The Rirris now absorbs food through the skin as it rolls. It is however a slow process.They live in deep waters so do not require a roll?
>>3092039just fyi, if you have sentences this confusing and unspecific with stuff like the shell extending into the shell, I'm just gonna interpret it as I want.
>>3092039this one lives simply in a big enough area to not be affected
>>3092043sorry the shell that extends into the shell protects the intestines on the inside that transports food when its needed into the pocket dimension so it can simply transport food into its dimension stomach to be predigested if it needs energy and the shell is like plates with flexible shell segments between the plates allowing it to swallow things bigger then a first glance would ques
>>3092046fuck i repeat myself the shell that extends into the dimension protects the intestines on the inside that transports food when its needed into the pocket dimension to be predigested when needed fucking headache.anyways what you think of the art?
>>3092047its like a flexible armored intestines that extends into a pocket dimension and grows with its age and possibly losing older weaker segments inside the dimension to be recycled
>>3092047the art is nice, but you can't have organs extend into a pocket dimension without it being constantly regrown because transdimensional stays corrode biological matter, wether it has a shell or not.
>>3092051shell is slower then flesh most likely do you think having the body incorporate inorganics in the plate work? like a anti-rust coating?
QM can you make a list of what has been saved so far and what still needs to be saved so people know what to roll for?
>>3092052and i had a idea of the intestine ending in a kind of beak or jaws like a spine looking centipede with a viscous bite and with some of that squid portal DNA letting it snap out of portals and drag in prey to be digested from the other end kind of just repeatably chewed up and and puked up before its sent to the body or stored in the intestines from the other end so it work like normal put now it can take in food from both ends like a kind of mimic species that stays close to there cousins and using them as bait and the only real difference on the outside is tiny or how they start bigger and grow bigger then the cousin species
>>3092052if the shell is made of non-organic, short molecules, then it can stay in the pocket dimension for a long time, longer than the animal's life span would be. But it can't protect anything bellow it - it's not like pocket dimensions are filled with acid, simply BEING THERE destroys complex molecules and large atoms (as well as noncomplex molecules and small atoms, just more slowly)>>3092059Well don't do unreasonably large jumps>>3092054stuff that lives on or right bellow the surface of the ocean as well as either side close to the shorelines is in danger. I'm not gonna look through all evos today to make a list.
>>3092060so it just grows a shell f inorganic shell and the parts outside the dimension has a intestine coating to push stuff in and from something perspective there is something that looks like a empty rattling spine coming from literally nowhere having diarrhea what you think about using arcane sugar as a molecule substitute or as a kind of shield i think of the breaking as a form of radiation or the laws of that reality so the idea can be to coat and put in those singularities to act as a sort of reality warper tor shield that creates "order" like the gellar field against the warp in WarHammer
i just dont know how or waht i should do for this to work
>>3087012Some of the Bloth Bursters become longer and wider in shape, so as to cover more area of the ocean floor, absorbing anything that it crawls over. This new subspecies is called the Long Bloth. It can also detect vibrations in the ground and water, which helps immensely in finding food.

>>3091172The Monomash kept getting thinner and thinner in order to better interface with it's cutter portal, even slimming down to a single layer of cells, until one fateful day, something strange happened: The Flatmash was born. A creature with an incredibly flat personality, the Flatmash is infinitely thin and completely two-dimensional, it's existence in traditional reality allowed only by it's highly degenerated pocket dimension organ. Other functions of it's body have been greatly reduced as well, it's nervous system simplified due to space constraints and it's "stomach", if you could call it that, being nothing more that a channel running throughout it's body, lacking even a true mouth.The Flatmash makes up for it's deficiencies with the extreme danger it can pose to any organism or object in it's way. Having almost zero functional mass, it is capable of disregarding the planet's pull, gliding gracefully through water and air alike, and slicing through anything it hits.
>>3088265The portal Umash has gradually been staying longer in pocket dimensions, growing thicker skin. Along their body, extra thick patches of skin have formed that have a different sensitivity to the pocket dimension and the outer world. With this, the Umash can lurk inside a pocket dimension, away from predators and capture food nearby.
>>3092106Field Researcher's notes: Flatmash seem to favor smooth, flat areas as "resting spots", often circling all over them for days on end despite the lack of any rational reason behind this behaviour.The body of the Flatmash seems selectively permeable: inorganic objects tend to remain whole, if a bit sliced up, after a specimen passes through them, yet when passing through a living being it's flesh will "fall" into the creature, seemingly disappearing. As being inside another animal usually restricts observation, it has not yet been determined what happens to the "eaten" material.When a Flatmash is killed, it tends to explode violently, seemingly as a result of it's exotic geometry being forced back into conventional reality and failing to function in it.While the Flatmash has no way of moving up and down under it's own power, lacking the neccessary musculature, it seems to possess a way of heating the atmosphere around certain points of it's body, using the resulting difference in air/water pressure to turn.
>>3087521Shyrav, only feeding on nul-light, have grown into long strands. Oddly, nul-light isn't absorbed by the surface of a creature but by specific receptors and longer shyrav can absorb more of it. The ocean floor is covered with dark "field" of floating Shyrav.
>>3087835The Parasitic Saggeth has often found need of their ecto-jets. Instead, their folds have developed into grappling fingers and suction flaps to easier hold on to prey. They store the extra ecto in their pouch. They mostly prey on bottom feeders and slower creatures.
>>3088221Several creatures have grown some tolerance to the sweet death. However, larger groups of death produce more potent arcane suggar. So it is that individual bits of sweet death have grown hairs to stick to eachother because that will keep then from being eaten or absorbed. Large clouds of death now float through the ocean. No, really, large death clouds.

>>3088832>>3088733>>3088825Imasites start out their lives as tumors and end their lives as tumors when they are eaten by Imash. The true alpha Imasite has rarely grown on anything other than Odd Imash, except for the related Sharmash. The Imasite practically forces themselve into the herbivore, creating tumors on the Sharmash tentacle. A fully grown Imasite now has a boney protrusion with which they seem to attack creatures at random. The Apha Imasite now grows on both Imash and Sharmash, showing an ambition to infect multiple species.

>>3091950And I think you forgot this Folliclyrav
>>3088302Thanks to a miracle mutation caused by a viral infection gone wrong has caused Photo-Thyrav to produce kuanophyll instead of chlorophyll. Kuanophyll is a pigment similar to chlorophyll but instead of absorbing red and blue light well but reflecting green, it has blue and green swapped. This has vastly improved the algae's ability to photosynthesize thanks to the fact that there is vastly more green light than blue reaching the surface. Due to this massive increase in success the Thyrav has undergone a regression. It no longer forms into large pads and has lost it's useless nerve cluster.

Hey QM, you should draw some more of your own evos.
>>3091172Many Monomash stop exposing themselves to the danger that was living almost constantly in pocket dimensions. Instead of putting their whole bodies through the strain that was portaling, they develop several tendril-like limbs that are strands made out of minuscule fibers that are almost invisible due to their size.These longs arms are used to slash both prey and predator with ease, any living being that comes into contact with them begin desintegrating, and every particle shaved off of a living being by the Endrilad is almost instantly digested.
>>3091142The Scroggeth is a Wraggeth that has fully adapted to its land habitat. It does not need to return to water except to drink. It walks on 4 small feet (that no longer shoot ectoplasm). The ectoplasm jet on its rear now shoots the echo plasm up and around the Scroggeth to create a smoke screen. The Scroggeth is blind and uses its new ears and longer teeth to echolocate. It hits its teeth together to create a high-pitched sound and uses its ears to see how that sound is affected by the environment.
>>3092681What do 7 and 8 mean? What happens if we roll them?
>>3088865As the animals surrounding it in the ocean grew ever stronger, the Glowpris, in turn, improved upon their own defenses, leading to the Glowmor. A large part of its body is contained within the central crystal, with the outside algae remaining for reproduction purposes almost exclusively. Even if the squishy outsides were entirely removed, as long as the crystal shell wasn't cracked open as well, the Glowmor will survive.
>>3092197Guys, I'm calling this one. The strange Imash is a herbivore, opportunistic omnivore at best, way smaller than the bony intestine pig bloth. How would the Imash, without a large mouth or even teeth, consume a part of the bloth in order to steal its genes? And the odd Imash just grows organs and mostly tumors, fully merging seems extreme. I feel like if you want a potentially all-consuming amalgamated horror, you've got to work up to it. OP, anons, what do you think?
Rolled 1 (1d8)>>3092681
>>3093312you dont need to kill to eat just looks at the non covered back side and its smooth jelly like flesh like i said its like a bowl of jelly with legsbut i can devolve it and work up to this evoluation again due to a "genetic error from copying and mashing in genes" or "the genetic materials where not compatable"
>>3093319i dont get why its not getting hunted its ass is exposed and it cant really turn around its just fly by and take a bit of flesh its like a blind, deaf and stupid Walking whale it just walks forward and turns when it bumps into something and eats anything its mouth can reach it does not even have a brain
>>3087835Gen 3 black Saggeths exploit the flesh bay as their natural home, preying on creatures who would enter it's nutrient rich waters. Primitive electrosensative tendrils and a more streamlined head provide better prey location. It is of note that the most recent Saggeth preys heavily on it's inferior kin.
>>3092158Gen 5 bony Imasites fufill a life cycle that researchers had not previously seen. The flesh is bolstered by their existence. Upon reaching a size of .5cm they will begin a long trek to the bay of flesh, and join with the gestalt mass, their many tendrils weaving into their kin, forming something new, something beautiful, and greater.
>>3083751They thyrav's thrashings have been explained. It has somehow tapped into ectoplasm. As opposed to the powerful jets of other creatures, the simple plant mimics the flight of a winged creature, at a much, much, slower pace.
>>3093327vetoed. Ectoplasm is a byproduct of consciousness. The Thyrav must either consume conscious things and store its ectoplasm or develop a brain/nerve cluster capable of rudimentary thought to use its own.
>>3093330forgot trip.Also, seeing as there's a lot of discussion going on in-thread, I'm gonna plug the discord again where we can talk about stuff in depth:https://discord.gg/mTs38H
>>3093049The Glowmor take to the skies, their incredibly lightweight forms are easily lofted into the atmosphere through a weak null-laser. The plant itself thrives off proper photosynthesis, and will propel ever higher in search of brighter light. Once too heavy to fly, it crashes down onto the land and into the ocean, to begin the germination process. A fantastic spectacle involves a beautiful glitter of Glowmor "dust" on the winds and in the clouds when light strikes it properly. The dust is also incredibly abrasive to lungs.
>>3093330did I say ectoplasm? I meant regular biological leaves that allow it to slowly fly through the water, without mind, but seeking sources of powerful light or null light.
>>3093319>>3093322Fair point, but the Imash isn't a hunter. And the full merge still seems harh.Just to be clear, I don't want to trample your creativity. It's a cool idea, we just need to govern ourselves. I'll leave the matter be until the Qm or a couple of vocal anons pitch in.
Give me plant ideas
>>3092683Further expansions of the 'head' area increases, allowing more sensitive sensory input. But with sensory input comes sensory overloads, and so the Brain Imash develops disposable grey matter. Incidentally, this kind of disposable grey matter is quite good for decoy purposes against predators.Also it should be 0.35 cm long, forgot to edit the length.
>>3093347Superconducting plants that either utilize quantum locking as a form of structural support, or pizeo-photosynthesis that generates energy from light, fuel, and movement.
>>3093347plants that are so 2-dimensional they blend into shadows.
+WORLD EVENT*"The one nice one"With mom's grass beginning to propagate and land based species following, providing fertilizer through droppings and death, grass is overtaking much of the coastlines and even penetrating the continents in some cases.This means a slow change of the atmosphere to be richer in oxygen as well as the development of an actual soil layer. Consequences:• New Habitat: Grassland• Buff to terrestrial life: Terrestrial organisms may now grow up to 5 times their size every evo with an upper limit of 1 meter for animals and 3 meters for plants>>3093347>>3093356how about a stem.
>>3093362fixed the key
>>3093347A kind of clinging moss that is hostile to other plants or a kind of rare plant/flower made from a matetial that dont break down in the dimension pocket Or a hard crystal ball of a plant that sprouts leaves and rises up the bulb on a trunk to get more light and can survive having everything but having the hardy crystal bulb eaten
>>3093367Can we get the regions of underwater vegitation as well?
>>3092197due to the genetic merge there has been a MAJOR drop in population but the good thing is that they are very long lived so they just dont go extinct. the reason population drop is due some major genetic fuck up that are just showing now with most of there offspring now being small mutated freaks making for a quick snack for others and those that can somehow miraculously survive and reproduce have there "skin" wrinkling and straining at places forming postulates and protrusions of uselessness "skin" and flesh often gaining small deformities on its body sometimes forming movable but nearly useless limbs..What was once a second mouth is now more like a anus puking out water it has sucked in and its the only thing that keeps it barely from just sinking at the bottom and dying its small weak and not smart in any sense of the word they eat anything that comes close to there tendrils or sucking mouththis is image is a example of one of the most healthy examples of The Failure ever seen to date (sorry for the other evolution and this is the drawback of the merge so now we have walking constantly eating flesh factories that makes small creatures that can also reproduce on there own think of it as a gift to the world and to encourage carnivores)
>>3093348idea make a two one way portals one a intake one a outtake the outtake is behind and the intake on the front acting as warp drive but for water making less water at the front so its less drag and kind of sucking you forwards while the one at the back makes more water and pushes you forward and the body moves in the way with less resistance so you can pick up quite some speed depending how much water you can suck in and push out the other portal
>>3092087The legs of the Long Bloth have grown and fused together. The Long Bloth can now push off of the ocean floor and use the legs like fins or paddles.
>>3093312I'm inclined to agree. Not that amalgations aren't a fun idea we shouldn't try out, but it definitely feels far too soon to get something like this. More than anything, the size differences need to be addressed for it to work, then perhaps have an evolution or two of them being a symbiotic dual-species before merging them into one new one.Unless iMM9F4k9 actually did build that up somewhat. Its just hard to tell, trying to parse and understand what the hell their actually saying.
>>3093558As far as I can tell he said that the species appeared after the Strange Imash stole the genes of the Bloth through one of it's quantum gene transfers, which is mostly believable except for the fact that the drastic change involved would preclude the hybrid from actually breeding and thus end the species before it even begins.
>>3093414>dont break down in the dimension pocket Again, for reiteration, pocket dimensions are anathema to ALL matter from our dimension.Organic matter is just the first to decompose, because it is the most complex and fastest to break down. But from OP's own hints, even simple molecules and atoms will eventually be destroyed in that alternate dimension. This also isn't something like acid surrounding you on all sides. This isn't something you can make a 'shell' around yourself to absorb the brunt of the damage. This is a decomposition that permeates your entire being, all of the cells of any organism in a pocket dimension are being equally destroyed when they enter. The very dimension itself is trying to tear you apart from the inside and out.The best solutions OP has posed thus far is either with minimum exposure (ie, animals can blink in and out of reality, but not sustain a long term warp) or with a rapid healing factor (able to regenerate cells faster than they are broken down). Pocket dimensions are a useful space, but suitably dangerous until we can think/evolve something that bypasses some of these limitations. Or they just might remain dangerous forever, since this is an eldritch location.>>3093435Go ahead and evolve some. Seems like most of the plant evolutions have been focused on the surface of the ocean or beginning terrestrial growth, so its a niche ready to be filled. Maybe sprout off of this one >>3092115 since it is a purely null-light consumer.
>>3093312I aagree that it seems extreme. If we say that can happen then it will allow for way to much bullshit further down the line. You could have it so it steals genes from much larger terrestrial animals without that it never meets, which is kinda bullshit.

>>3091418After the wave of toxic gasses emitted from the rotting flesh settled, the remaining Thyrui were able to grow bigger in the more spacious ocean surfaces.Their leaf has grown larger in diameter, allowing more surface area to be exposed to the sun, as well as provide more stability to maintain afloat on the ocean's surface. The root meanwhile has also extended in length, and had an increase in the number of offshoots from the tap-root. In areas where many Thyrui gather, the topside of looks like one big mat of bluish-green, while the underside looks like an inverted forest. Dangling roots provide nutrients and filtered water not only to the Thyrui, but also a location of food and shelter for various ocean-bound species. >>3093362>how about a stem.Giving the flora something more complex than algae/grass/colony-based structures?Dohohoho.
>>3093740I can just feel this leading to floating islands
>>3088865After many generations, Glowpris living in the shores of SII-2453-0 grow accostumed to the chemical composition of "rocks" and "soil", taking advantage of it and incorporating it's many different minerals to it's own body.They take on a Basalt-like structure, allowing them to grow much more quickly and sturdier, losing their clear look and begining to resemble rocks.. Yet the diversity of both metal and non-metal elements present on their enviroment has allowed them to form small crystaline clusters in their bodies, ranging from olivine-like formation to ones that are more similar to quartzes, all these different types of gemstones interact differently with the light and null-light they bend.
>>3091434>>3091437A sub-species of the Saggeth shrink in length slightly, while their bodies expand to hold greater quantities of ectoplasm or water.Their siphons have also developed the ability to blow small quantities of water. Not as effective as ectoplasm, but it provides a source of locomotion without a substantial soul supply. Their siphons have also spread more evenly across their rear end. Sacrificing speed for maneuverability, they can gimbal their way around an opponent before striking from a blind spot.
>>3092649Blue Photo-Thyrui have mutated, growing countless small filaments on their backsides that somehow allow them to absorb part of the free-floating ectoplasm that is all around in the ocean. It seems those living near large groups of Brain Imash (>>3093348) tend to grow much larger, most likely due to the large amounts of brain tissue these animals throw around when threatened.
>>3092909Many Scroggeth, lacking sources of food on land, migrate back to the oceans. There, their tails become much longer, and they begin relying on them for hunting, activating jets of ectoplasm present on it's sides to flap them quickly and violent, killing animals with their brute force.
>>3093703what do 5-8 do I'm scared
>>3092041In order to grab more prey, a subset of Rirri begin to develop a specialized organ for storing ectoplasm. Due to the density of ectoplasm being less than water, this allows Rirri to gradually float around. Enabling it to grab detritus with its body, before said detritus falls all the way to the ocean floor.This allows it to get first pick on what scraps fall to the ocean. And more ectoplasm to keep it aloft, as fresher dead have larger bits of ectoplasm still tethered to their rotting bodies.
>>3093819Releases the source of null light
>>3093819Nothing, if we keep rolling low enough.Probably releases the hidden Fun stuff.
>>3087887The scavenging Irrisim follow the food where it goes. As creatures flock to the shoreline (and get taken apart by the devouring flesh), there are fresh pickings to get found. The new Garisim's mouth moves from the bottom of the body to the front. With its tender limbs it picks pieces of dead things from the shore and shovels it into its mouth.
>>3093819>>3093826>>3093832Daddy is coming.
A research file on differences between light-based sight and null light-based sight:On the attached file you can see the differences between the vision of a human and a vision of an Irrisim creature. Unlike a human, the Irrisim does not have a concept of color, and brightness, due to the peculiar properties of null light, is decided not only by the relative position between the source of light and the viewed object, but also by the distance of the viewed object from the Irrisim as well.
>>3087887Swimmism develops a more streamlined body as well as a stronger tail and an overall larger body. Besides eating floating detritus it begins using it's arms to gather plants for food.
>>3092039the offshoot called the bony pig bloth is a new comer to land where everything is covered in food a paradise, so it reinforced there bones focused the shell from the core to just under the skin forming a shell that can support its jelly like body ,and the method for how it can breath on land and not dry out is simple it sucks in HUGE amounts of water with mouth and and get some air through the flesh on on the back thats air permeability so it passively absorbs air that it can mix into its water filled dimensional stomach this mean even if the air originally contained in the water runs out it can just refill with the outside air it only needs to regularly replace the water it losses from the evaporation on the skin to avoid death still gets a little dry and flaky it eats grass happily but would also really love anything dead or dying or small enough to fit inside the mouth
>>3093998i am way to ranty and detailed
>>3093800The process of convergent evolution has made the Blue Photo-Thyrui evolve similarily to the Winged Thyrav. (>>3093800)Also because I felt that posting a recolor would be just too lazy: They develop a segmented body, whose growth seems to only depend on the available resources, however the total number of segments is limited, stopping around the 30th.Their body becomes more tube-like, allowing them to face less resistance when gliding in the water, with their inner walls being lined with the same fibers present on the backsides of their leaves. This lets them easily suck in any ectoplasm present near them. The Blue Coilravs grow in large groups, forming moving algae forests in the oceans of SII-2453-0.
>>3094141Forgot to mention, they reproduce via spores (I'm guessing thats how all algae in SII-2453-0 do.) but if a segment is ripped off the plant, it will act as a new plant.
>>3094149>I'm guessing thats how all algae in SII-2453-0 do.Unless otherwise specified, (or circumstances make it implausable), reproduction happens as in the parent generation. Which in this case dates all the way back to the original Thyrav which reproduced by being ripped apart after growing too large.Also, Where do the algae forests move about, aproximately? In case I want to put them on the map. Are they equator, shore proximity, polar regions, ubiquitous...
>>3094156I'm going to assume that plants that live on the ocean's surface are at the equator where there's more light. Plants that live off of purely null-light aren't visible via the surface because of how deep they are. Everything else is distributed fairly evenly except at the poles, where there's not a lot of light. The only plants that live at the poles are purely null-light-dependant.
>>3087138Kind of building on top of what this anon described.The Shellgrav float relatively deep in the oceans to maximize the amount of null-light they can convert into energy, at the same time they grow long strands of chlorophyll rich tissue that is sometimes interrumped by small "caps" which release proto-seeds during mating season. These long floating stems also have small root-like fibers growing out of them so as to catch as much sunlight as possible.These plants may sometimes congregate into large groups known as "mine fields" (due to their resemblance to naval mines), which aren't dense enough to be classified as algae forests.
>>3083707Its been a while since someone's drawn from the gen 0's, hasn't it?While many Imash have taken to using the built up Null-light energy they harvest from Thyrav and other plants on accessing pocket dimensions, this subspecies has managed to shed intangible 'specters' of itself to evade predators. These specters quickly disipate after being released, and have no physical form, often leaving would be predators in a state of confusion if they bite into one.It is unknown if these specters are corporealization of ectoplasm, shed off from the main body. Or echoes of the Imash from the pocket dimension, escaping back into the material realm.They also turn slightly purple, because why not. I figure that might be what this sort of null-light ingestion might look like.
>>3094141+WORLD EVENT+"The silence before the storm"aka: "This is a sign"The currents of the Ocean have changed. Where before there had been seasonal changes in intensity of polar-equatorial flow broken up by continental blockage, now a more predictable, more severe current has taken hold - One circling the Obsidian Islands around the equator.Consequences:• Cooling of Equatorial seas and land. This is not yet an extinction event. the yet is emphasized• A bad feeling concerning the future.>>3095017Since its necessary for evolvers to know I will decree that these echos are indeed ectoplasm, and what's more the ectoplasm of the Imash, which means doing this too frequently will make it braindead. Otherwise, entirely permissable evo.

>>3093326>>3095100In the bay of flesh, the Imasites thrive. Well, "thrive" is a bad description: they wiggle around in the warm flesh, away from the cooling sea, waiting to be consumed by a mouthhole opening in the Flesh. However, this has cause Imasite tumors to grow, not on the Imash, but on the Flesh itself. This has grown the new tumor-born Gurosites, bearing a horrific set of teeth similar to those of the Fleshmouth. The mouth is entirely redundant as the Gurosite still lives of small electric currents, before dying early or being consumed. They mainly use their teeth like their horns, to randomly attack other critters. Researchers have accurately described them as "gross cancerous douchebags".
>>3095131Just to be clear: the Gurosites aren't really able to sustain themselves with nutrients, but still large groups exist because of their incidental way of reproducing. They make easy prey and therefore live very, very short lives, but that makes that causes more gurosites being born. Imagine you'd getting pregnant of tiny cows each time you ate a hamburger.
Rolled 1 (1d8)>>3095104Here comes daddy.
>>3095134So only something that disolves dna before digesting it can eat it?
>>3095182Anything can eat it, but when the Flesh, the Oddmash or the Sharmash eats it, the Gurosite develop tumors. They don't have the ability to do this in every species. Yet.
>>3095185you have inspired me to possibly create a shining glowing yellow black hole with legs
>>3091762The Hsmyx adapts to the cooling weather, growing taller, most of it's violent dimensional reactions now happen within it's body. Heat generated from the process keeps the organism warm, but causes it to exhaust noxious fumes.

>>3095100qm what color is best at absorbing null-light/normal-light
>>3095131boi do you know what you need? intestines also a question do they plant there dna in something with them attacking?
>>3095300normal light? I guess black? It absorbs all colours.null light? It doesn't have a traditional visual spectrum. If we look at the thread though, it seems that the pigments used for it are black or at least dark, as the more a plant relies on null light, the darker it seems to become.
>>3094438how close can they come to the ocean floor?>>3095304also how common are the electric storms?and can the pocket dimension stomachs store heat or cold?

>>3083705Flicker Thyrav seems to effortlessly and constantly slide in and out of existence through unusual quantum mechanics, moving up and down energy states and even dimensions at once, its component pieces entangled and unharmed by the process.While a visual spectacle, any organism that consumes the Thyrav experiences a momentary "flicker" as the matter normalizes in it's gullet.
>>3092909The bone stilter has developed calcium deposits similar to it's teeth inside it's feet to aid in locomotion, due to the relation in structure between it's legs and tail it has also developed similar spines.
>>3095287>critical failure is still better than alternativeoh no
>>3095352I wonder where you are going with this
+WORLD EVENT+"The Maw" part 1 of 2The currents of the ocean have been circular, around the center of the obelisk's circle. Into it, water flows, but no outflow is being detected.For a while, this was a small oddity that seemed to not affect the sea height much. But then the thunderstorms returned.And the currents, especially around the equator, increased.Then the dark light emissions weakened across the globe, with the exception of the obsidian islands.And then the whirlpool appeared.A gigantic vortex opened up in the midst of the obelisks, sucking in water and lightning from the clouds. It was as if some great hole had opened at the floor of the sea, and the Oceans plummetted into the gap.Consequences:• Doomsday clock: in 24-48 hours (when I get to it), all evolution will be halted and extinction rolls will be called for.• lowering sea levels: land will be expanding between now and the extinction event.• lowering temperatures: temperatures will be lowering between now and the extinction event.Evolve accordingly to get a better roll in the extinction event.And may Thadoz have mercy on you all.
>>3091925The Land Irrisim have developed a coating of small tentacles on their lower surface, similar to a starfish's underside. In addition, their color darkens in order to combat the lower temperatures.
Cold adaptation ideas for plant anons based on real life:1) Underground bulbs to preserve useful nutrients/energy reserves so surviving cold periods would be easier2) High concentration of monasacharides in leaves/stem or any part of the plant not underground prevents freezing3) Anti-freeze proteinsMost of these only work for land plants
>>3092649The Blue Photo-Hoya is a variant of the Photo-Thyrav that has developed "roots". These roots are specialized cell structures that form when the Hoya no longer receive enough nutrients from the surrounding water to support it's size. They filter out nutrients from a much farther range and deliver it to the main mass of amorphous cells.>>3095458Darn it, I'm going to have to work double time to get my idea done. Also how are my evos so far? This is my first time doing something like this and I'm not sure I'm doing a good job or not.
>>3095502I can only find one other evo from you, but the ones I can see are great
>>3093998the bony big bloth has made its flesh denser this means its more adapted to land and losses less water and it has developed a cavity more like a skin crease under its its feet leading to better friction this means they need to drink less water this leads to them migrating further up the land
>>3095519DUCK FORGOT THE PICTURE
>>3095135>1Haha, hell yeah.>>3095287I just find it amusing we can push off your grand surprise as long as physically possible. I want to make it so you HAVE to turn every option eldritch before we pick it, even if the alternative is two crit fails in a row. Its just the small satisfaction of the players and dice getting one over the QM.Plus, In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity. A supernatural event is just going to open up new possibilities and niches for species, whether it was intended as bad or good. Nature always finds a way.
>>3095519>>3095523the bony pig bloth developed suction cups on it feet from a a muscle dragging up the skin from the cavity under the foot creating suction force and much much better grip on rocks ans smooth surfaces and even sand due to them pushing sand with there feet more effectively
>>3095554The "Big Pig" is simply an upscaled bloth with a longer neck to better get at higher food sources.
>>3095607so the head moved up becoming longer and stronger giving it a much better reach and bite strength?
>>3095131Sphereocytes are Imasites that find themselves bursting from "the flesh" but hitting land instead of water. The colder terrain causes the creature to roll up into a ball of sinew and begin to slowly roll about. They carrier their host's capability to process organic matter, if limitedly. The creature is constantly starving, but can stave off death via consumption. They are attracted to sources of electricity, even weak ones, and have been known to slowly follow other creatures.
>>3095554the big bloth reinforces there bones and bone structure and there shell and growing small bowl shapes in there feet making there suction cups much stronger they also now when meeting another as mating they puke up a thick soup of genetic materials in each others mouths then swallowing its messy processes but it get the job done and after a while both genetic donors start to regularly vomit up a warm insulated kind of pile thats a mix of sand/dirt/small-rocks with small eggs with there shell being a thin layer of bone mixed with some inorganic material after thats done they will just continue walking this is a major improvement from just vomiting up the genetic materiel in the water and hopping they will mix with another bloths genetic material and because of the egg stage they have a kind of egg tooth on there beaks
>>3095502The Blue Anchor-Hoya is a Hoya that has directed growth. When ever a root finds a large source of nutrients(Detritus, soil... living creatures) the Hoya will begin to grow all roots in the direction of said source of nutrients. When nutrients are now longer received in large amounts from a root it's severed after about a week. Due to this behavior the Hoya will eventually become rooted into the sea floor , either because it grew to large and sunk or it got rooted when young to the floor.
>>3095518Yeah I haven't made that many yet. I was lurking for most of time since I was unsure I could make a good evo. Good to know though that they're good though, I'll try to make a bunch.
>>3095742my only note is: spread out your evos amongst more species
>>3095352Along the shorelines the flickermoss settles in, it's multi dimensional existence allows it to draw in both more light and null light than would normally be possible. Despite the exotic nature, most creatures find the plentiful grass to be palatable.
Alright, time to rip the bandaid off and get this thing where I want it before the extinction event.>>3093740The photo-thyrui, over a long period of time, evolve several more advanced structural components and organs to compete for the sparse real estate on the ocean surface. Most notably being the development of 'bulbs'. These bulbs grow off of the offshoot roots, and can either grow to become more leaves for the individual Thyruius, or break off and float through the ocean currents, before growing a new Thyruius plant.Their root system, meanwhile, has developed to be large and entangling. While the lone bulb might free itself to spawn new Thyruius, the colony as a whole is typically composed of a few primary Thyruiuses that branch and entangle within each other. Their offshoot roots are also supported by a primary taproot which descends deep into the water, to gather any nutrients they can, or occasionally find purchase in grabbing onto other things below them.Finally, they have developed a dual-faced leaf. Since the scant sunlight only comes from above, all the chloroplasts have moved onto the top-side of the leaves, darkening the top side, and ensuring no sunlight makes it past its canopy. This results in an interesting development on the bottom-side. Since the Thyrui long ago gave up their null-light photosynthesis, the Thyruius wants nothing to do with null-light coming from below, as any null-light that makes it past the canopy encourages other plants to grow on top of their leaves and cut off their valuable sunlight. As such, the bottom-side of the leaves have developed a specific protein that is highly reflective of null-light.
>>3094438>>3095458To prevent (or at least, slow) their involuntary migration, Shellgrav have developed an 'anchor' to catch themselves on the ocean floor as they are pushed via the currents. These do not function as an actual root, however, and so the stem of the plant has also lengthened by a considerable amount. With the evolution, the phenomena of minefields have also changed. As they are much slower to be moved by the ocean currents, these groups can get much denser.
>>3095802As a visual representation of what happens to the light above and under a Thyruius colony. The sunlight hits the top and is more or less completely absorbed. Leaves grow in from off-shoots to fill in as many gaps as possible in the net.Meanwhile, Null-light comes in, and is immediately reflected back down, creating a greater concentration of null-light in areas beneath Thyruius colonies.
>>3095310The Brain Imash uses manifested ectoplasm to act as a sort of lubricant, aiding in it's speedy movement.
>>3095352>>3095770This has given me a idea for a project Tierra evolution game where you evolve viruses and programs. pixelated creatures and how the environment works would be neat.
>>3094438While their bulbs are typically heavy enough to keep a shellgrav closer to the ocean floor than the surface, the increase in ocean currents has been enough to distribute these plants across the various strata of the ocean.Those that manage to reach the surface encounter an interesting new ecosystem. While Null-light is typically stronger the closer you get to the core of the planet, the area beneath the Thyruius colonies >>3095802 have a much stronger concentration of null-light due to their reflective underbellies. This results in a sub-set of Shellgravs readjusting their buoyancy to remain in the sweet spot beneath Thyruius colonies. Shellgrav stems often get tangled up with the taproot and offshoot roots of the Thyruius, resulting in a tangling mass of plant fibers. And since the Thyruius allow little to no sunlight to pass the surface, the shellgrav dedicate themselves fully to null-photosynthesis in this newly discovered hot spot.
>>3095690the climbing pig bloth focuses much of its mass ,energy into a pair of stronger front limbs with claws.when they find a big Blue Anchor-Hoya they claim it as their territory defending it from anything it can find, even other bloth.They still exchange genetic material with other Climbing Pig Bloth, but due to the tree owners higher position over the guest, the genetic exchange becomes unfair where the tree owner dont need to spend as much energy on making eggs. This leads to the tree owners genetic material spreading much more making them a sort of "proto-male".dont feel sorry for the quest bloth, There front limbs help them with movement and even in self defense.
>>3092115Thanks to this new Thyruius ecosystem, the Shyrav are able to flourish within the tangling sprawls of roots and stems. Thanks to their long and dangling strands, they are able to loop in and out of the other plants and grow freely. They get slightly longer and can form more complex strands as a result.
Warping around and blinking using pocket dimensions can be a risky proposition in the Thyruius ecosystem; mainly due to the mess of plant fibers, which can easily capture and entangle any species that doesn't look where its going before it warps.As such, the other species of Imash and their decedents that rely less on portal-hopping find the Thyruius ecosystem a prime place to consume plants and null-light, while also providing more protection than the empty ocean. Primary of which being the >>3095017 Specter-Imash, which can escape in the plant growth while its ectoplasm-specters lead predators in completely different directions. Often getting them completely lost in the maze of fibers.and the >>3095899 Brain Imash, which can use its manifested ectoplasm lubricant to easily slip and slide its way through the over growth.The ectoplasm from these species, of course, dissolves back into null-light, which in turn reenters the ecosystem, reflected by Thyruiuses, and absorbed by Shyrav, Shellgrav, and other null-photosynthesizers.
>>3093797Saggath have evolved even more siphons along their bodies to aid in 3-dimensional movement.This allows them to bob and weave through environments with even greater freedom.
Darn it 4chan ain't letting me post.
>>3096153Figured out what was wrong. Turns out the image file wasn't png for some reason.>>3088832>>3088760The Bullmash is a Sharmash that has become even more hydrodynamic and has stolen the Flaggeth's ability to shoot ectoplasma to propel it self to incredible speeds.It use this speed to quickly burrow into other creatures then lay eggs inside of them. In about two weeks the eggs will hatch and the newborn Bullmashes will devour their host whole.
>>3095990the climbing feet with suction cups where so much superior to there normal suction cup feet.this meant spreading these adaptations to there other limbs.for when defending themself they can rear up on there back legs ,artistically flail around there 4 pairs of sharp claws while the back pair grips with its hooked claws to anchor it. As a bonus these hooked/clawed feet allows them to also live in the Thyruius colonies but they do sometimes fall off to the sea floor
>>3096167nice i like your work with the sea trees any ideas to help us keep all the water before it disappears? like a kind of wall at the edge of the Thyruius colony
>>3095726Due to environmental pressure from >>3095802 Hoya's have been forced to start taking on actual structures. They now form stalks with leaves growing off of them to better catch sunlight and form hardier roots to better gain nutrients. They also now, in addition to their previous form of reproduction. form spores that when it meets a spore of the opposite "gender" forms into a zygote that then grows into a healthily weed.
>>3096185Thanks for the complement I'm really glad you guys like my work. And ya A wall or plug is really the only way to stop the water flow. Though ostrich probably won't get rid of all the water it will ruin the ecosystem if we don't stop him. My suggestion is to evolve Anchor-Hoya's to grow over the hole.
>>3095820the Anchor Root grows actually roots on the sea floor but its mostly a small ball of a tap root and some short roots>>3096321like it growing in at the edges blocking the flow or getting caught at the obelisks and forming like a net or dam?
>>3096357Getting caught on the obelisks and turning a dam would work best. Would could flavor it as the algae turning into filter feeders turning into a proper dam that filters much less water through it then have some parasite turn it into a proper wall that has no holes in it at all. ostrich couldn't argue with that solution.
>>3096411what you think about as a start having a form of algae borrow in roots covered in nullsynth cells to anchor it to the obelisks and get as much energy as possible out of it and cover it in a kind of plant sock
>>3089426The Mohukki is a descendant of the Phthukki that first started evolving when the Flesh started to die. When the Flesh was dying Phthukki faced a crisis since there was now significantly less blood now, however there was miracle for the starved Phthukki. In the wake of the Flesh's culling came Mom's grass that took over where which the Phthukki than adapted to feed on. In place of their pumping organ and they grew primate mouths with clawed tongues to scoop up grass and "teeth" to filter out earth. It also grew eyes to better find grass. These eyes grew where there was once blood storage causing one useless eye to grow on top.
>>3096435That could work but what do you mean by plant sock?
>>3096456having the algea root and cover the whole thing like a sock on a foot
>>3096460Ah that makes more sense, rereading your post that makes a whole lot more sense now, but wouldn't make a dam really... but I think I have and idea to make this work. The two ways I see to makes this works is to have >>3095991 cover then have either it turn into a filter feeder or >>3095726, after growing on top of >>3095991, turn into one. Then we have the colonies on each fuse together then start growing towards the other pillars. After that we have one of >>3088865 's relatives turn into a parasite that will turn the dam into a wall of crystal. How does that plan sound?
>>3088436the thinn imash have gotten even smaller, becoming the smol imash. the smol imash have become even more skilled at dimensional manipulation,being able to semi-manifest a pocket dimension. semi-manifested pocket dimensions are fields that alter the weight and corrosion of what's inside depending on how fully manifested they are.Ex.a pocket dimension that is 80% manifested has 80% of it's existence overlayed with our dimension. This means that anything in the pocket dimension weighs 80% as much on our side. this also means that only 20% of the pocket dimension is "in use", making the corrosion effect 20% as potent.this allows for easier transportation of objects, like eggs from predators.addtionally, they have decreased in size, but have not developed tougher skin to compensate
>>3096539i dont know if you can do that?
>>3096621me neither, i'll probably need heavy reworking at best.
also are you in discord?
>>3096641I'm not in the discord, also what's wrong with this plan. I can try and iron any thing that doesn't sound right.
>>3083737here is the link
>>3096648and sorry if i dont replay more but i think i am falling asleep
>>3096654If you're falling asleep should probably get some rest. Also the links not working.
>>3096661https://discordapp.com/channels/215163352916295681/215163352916295681 does this work?
>>3096668It doesn't, maybe we should just wait for ostrich to repost it.
>>3094438Although first believed to be a subset of the Thyruius Forest Shellgrav (>>3095947), the Polar Shellgrav is a completely different species that evolved to survive on the colder deeper parts of the ocean, and the polar seas.The Spikegrav biology has adapted to vast darkness, now depending almost completely on Nullsynth. , their bulbs have become much larger, and no longer develop stems. Instead, they grow thorny vines sporadically, that can either grab onto an object (ie: the underside of a glacier, a rock, etc) to use as an anchoring point, or grow into a new bulb if theres nothing to hold on to. This behavior leads to the formation of "nets" made out of these plants, which act as a perfect cover for small hervibores, since the plants' thorns harm large predators that hunt them.Researchers have described these nets have "an eerie feeling to them", a sensation most likely caused by the large amounts of null energy in circulation in these ecological communities.
>>3093940Swimmisms develop a thick layer of fat to help them withstand the colder atmosphere, also they develop a boney necklace that allows them to burrow themselves in sand to escape predators.
>>3090604Due to it facing extreme predation and being outcompeted by better suited plants such as (>>3093776), my mom's grass is forced to develop a harsh defense mechanism: cyanide, tons of it. My mom's grass is literally poisionous to all animal lifeforms.
>>3096305The Blue Hoya further refines it's reproductive system, evolving a specialized organ that both hosts it's gametes and helps them grow into an easier to spread form; a flower if you wish.These organs have an enticing shape, colour and smell that attracts carnivores and omnivores to it, using them as pollinators.
>>3095245Following Hsmyx generations further adapt to take advantage of their opposing pocket dimensions, forcing them ever closer against each other. This violent clash of dimensions creates heat like never before made by an organism on the planet. Few of the Hsmyx with this adaptation survive maintaining the reaction and the heat generated without destroying themselves. Those who do reap the rewards of their inner fires, as organic and inorganic matter alike gets consumed in the reaction. As a result these Hsmyx become larger. Far in the unending darkness of the planet's depths weak lights can now be seen, slowly moving about the seafloor.
>>3090903Some Bloth Burster Pigs have their sensory organ grow bigger, migrating to a part of its body more appropiately shaped to bending null-light towards the sight-organ. These Pigs can be found surviving in regions bordering to the obsidian pillars. As a result, to survive strong streams of water, these Pigs have become larger and their bodies have started to develop patches of leather-like tissue serving mainly to increase their weight. >>3084305>>3095458
>>3096539>>3096621you can do that. This is a perfect example of evolving the use of null light effects while staying in their parameters.The effects of a pocket dimension are respected, and the modification is not done in the natural constant that is the dimension but in the generating organ of the animal. love it.
>>3095301> do they plant there dna in something with them attacking?No, they're just horrible dicks.
>>3095802Some Thyruius develop an interesting adaptaiton; thermal synthesis. While no longer using null light, the plant adapt its underside coating towards converting null light to thermal energy, which aids in chemical conversion. A byproduct of this is a mild EM field that seems to drive away more intelligent creatures. At the same time the supple leaves are dense with water and nutrients. Coupled with the naturally ectothermic nature of the plant to function and you have an enticing place to dwell, if only for short periods.The Clingers seem very attracted to the obsidian pillars and isles, clustering over them in thick creeping mats.
>>3093513The Long'Er Bloth has crept up from the oceans to the lands. Breathing occurs through wet skin, and a large dorsal sail aids in temperature regulation, expanding during moments of peak thermal availability, and deflating as the environment cools. The Long Bloth mostly forages off moss, but is not above eating other things.
>>3088221Sweet mold is a descendant of sweet death with a core of null-light-synthesizing cells. It has tiny openings used for reproduction or to produce a thick sticky sugary goo. This goo is their main product, though they will produce arcane sugar if they get stuck to something they need to dissolve, or to drill holes for their roots.When they anchor on obelisks, they have a habit of spreading as much as the available nutrients allow.
>>3093823The Rirri doesn't spend extra energy to escape the cooling and draining seas. Instead, when they are low on nutrients and ectoplasm to float, they sink to the ocean floor and go into a passive hibernation mode. They anchor their viscous membrane to the ocean floor, slow down their metabolism and fortify their cellular walls. A passive Rirri can stay down for months and even years. They activate when clouds of ectoplasm float their way, which they absorb and use as an energyboost. They float up again, gather nutrients and ecto and settle down again when needed.When the oceans are in turmoil, the Rirri will be fast to the bottom of the oceans, sleeping...
>>3098343the sweet mold has begun digging with its new sophisticated segmented roots covered in null-synth cells and each time one of them die a neighboring sweet mold will replace them in there hole
>>3096170the pillar pig bloth has reinforce its musculature and skin have also changed there claws a little so they have better grip on smooth surfaces and this comes from some climbing pig bloths getting swept up by the currents and getting stranded on the pillars with the sweet mold
>>3098574the pig pillar bloth compact its shell and insides into a more sturdy shape and developed a small segmented tail
>>3095899Brain Imash have evolved to utilize their brain throwing tendencies. They store large spawns of eggs inside their brain casing, so that when it is thrown in defence the unconsumed brain cases will eventually hatch into a small swarm of the Brain Imash. The swarm of children voraciously eats what ever plant matter they can find before slowing down as they put on more fatty tissue.
>>3098517the sweet mold evolves long tubes this increases the surface area and the dispersal method this leads to them producing more sugary goo
A strain of Grass develops lumps on their undersides, which animals can't reach when feeding and as such grass can regenerate after being eaten.The lumps are also used for storing nutrients.
>>3096539the smol imash have reversed their new trick. instead of staying in normal space, the burrower imash can delve into the partial pocketEx. the burrower imash 80% manifests a pocket dimension. in the realside, matter weights 80% as much and the corrosion effect is 20%. in the null side, matter weighs 20% as much and the corrosion effect is 80%.while in the nullside, imash gain greatly increased strengthEx. a burrower 80% manifests a pocket dimension.
>>3099510shit, also the tentacles got 26.5% bigger due to new strength focus
>>3098313Ger-gers have thick skin for spending greater periods on land and breath through their dorsal sails. They will grow longer and longer indefinitely with age, but seldom grow longer then 25 cm.
>>3095726The Blue Hoya-Shrub is a Hoya that has evolved to be far more complex. It's roots have developed into proper roots to resit the pull of the maw and take in more nutrients from the soil. They have also further specialized some of their former proto roots in to basic vascular tubes to better distribute water and nutrients through out the algae. The mass of photosynthesizing algae on top has flattened out too better catch sunlight. Finally, and most remarkably, the algae has devloped a addiotional way of reproducing, budding. The Shrub will release male gametes that will seek out other Shrubs, it will then fuses with the Shrub and 1-2 weeks later a new Shrub will fall of the parent Shrub.
>>3099140Mom's grass has become a whoopie cushion of death. The grass hordes highly nutritious fluids in cyst like tubers just below the surface. Growing in fields, the plants become a veritable no man's zone. The liquid from the tubers is forcefed into the spongy and highly coiled main shaft of the plant, where it rapidly extends upwards. A hardened tip, made to dissuade predators serves well as a kinetic penetraitor.
>>3099688and i forgot the image.
>>3096167Too better survive in the chilling seas the Bullmash has fully devoted it self to it's parasitic lifestyle. The Bullmash's back mouth is now fully devoted to shooting out ectoplama with them developing a front mouth to compensate. This allows them to easily burrow into hosts where they will live out the rest of their days, subsisting on the blood of their host. When they near the end of there life they finally lay there eggs which will hatch and devour the host in a ravenous frenzy.

>>3099140While originally overlooked due to no visible distinction between species, some grass has developed into Synapse-Grass.The lump buried into the ground has grown, both in mass and in neuron count. This lump not only stores nutrients and grows the leaf blades, but it also generates the electrical shock needed to keep plants from eating it.Interestingly, the use of this defense mechanism has declined relative to other grass species. The shocks are only used when the lump itself is at risk of being consumed by an animal. Otherwise, herbivores are free to eat the small blades that stick out of the ground.
>>3100001The Synapse begins incorporating more ions into it's cells chemical composition as a way of building up a stronger electronegative potential. In order for the electric currents to travel better, it develops wall-less cells on it's insides, which makes the plants all mushy. This is fought by developing a quasi-bark structure on it's outside. The increment in the plant's processing power has caused it to manifest low quantities of something that resembles ectoplasm, but quite isn't yet.
>>3100450Forgot to mention, the change in the plant's makeup has made it slightly toxic.
>>3093326While many Imasites have traveled to the flesh, some have found life near the poles and at the bottom of the ocean.Almost entirely dependent on the Hsmyx >>3097072. Whose thermal generation keeps the Imasites warm enough to survive; and the chemical exhaust from the Hsymx providing ample electrical currents and chemical compounds to grow. Similar to natural hydrothermal vents.Because they cannot kill their hosts, or lose their livelihoods, these Volco-Imasites only lay their eggs barely under the skin of the Hsmyx. Enough to keep them warm, but not enough to kill it when they hatch.
>>3095477Whether out of spite or desperation, some Irrisims decide to specialize in hunting the static, widespread grasslands rather than scavenge for scraps. They evolve incisor teeth to help clip trimmings of plant matter.The main hurdle they face is with the almost omni-presence of toxic and/or electric flora on the surface grasslands. Their beam-eye grows slightly larger to focus stronger beams onto whatever they look at. Said beams are able to numb the neurons that generate electricity, or destabilize the delicate chemical compounds that make the plant toxic to begin with. With this ability, they beam any plants in front of them that exhibit null-light, before consuming.
>>3093833Since the Garrisim is a scavenger, it needs to be able to eat whatever it can.More and more often, the food it runs across has died to ingesting poisonous compounds, either arcane or otherwise, from the various plants that grow on SII-2453-0. In order to still eat these corpses without dying itself, the Garrisim has developed an organ that releases enzymes to break down the various toxins its typically exposed to. >For Garrisims in locations where arcane sugar-producing plants are more common, and the herbivores and carnivores are more prone to arcane-sugar poisoning, the enzymes it produces specifically counter the portal-stabilizing dissaccharide.>For Garrisims that live in locations where traditional/mundane toxins common place, they develop enzymes to break down those specific toxins.These organs can only be 'trained' how to produce one or two enzymes in their life-time, usually triggered by whatever is most commonly ingested by the Garrisim. While in theory, they could produce enzymes for any other toxins, the lone Garrisim is not likely to feast in an area where multiple different sources of toxin occur. This 'training' is also most effective when the Garrisim is still relatively juvenile. The older they get, the harder it is to train the body to neutralize other toxins.
I have had some problems with 4chan and computers. Thus, I am not sure if I will have assets for the extinction.That being said, said extinction will occur within the next 3-4 hours. be warned.>>3099510being in other dimensions is corrossive for biological matter. So this is either vetoed or a trick to be done temporarily.
>>3095770Flickermoss grows past the moist beaches and into the open fields. While it has none of the defensive measures of the other plants, it spreads rapidly, focused on rapid growth. Organisms that eat the grass will momentarily flicker as the matter dimensionally aligns. This flickering creates heightened perceptions and altered states of mind. Some animals enjoy it, some experience raw horror, but nearly all choose an easy meal over a hard one.
>>3096167>>3092106A new species of Flatmash evolves, one that spends the entirety of it's life on the inorganic shells of other Imash descendants, acting as something between an STD and a point defense system.
