In the aftermath of The Ralphie Armada's invasion, the vermin world's ecosystems are left as ruined as it's civilization; only a few hardiest creatures surviving the carnage. Yet, it is not yet the end of the world; the survivors shall perservere, and in time, flourish and diversify into an entirely new biome...
And here are the four creatures that YOU will shape into the inheritors of the region.The rules of the game are as follows:1. Find a creature that is still alive3. Paste the creature in a pixel editor program like MSPaint4. Make a noticeable mutation for them that makes sense and is not too major5. Add necessary format either in description or within its picture, please follow format shown below this post for this5. Post evo here, with a description of what changedNow, for do's/don'tsDO post no matter how shitty your art isDO try to use the pencil tool instead of any sophisticated brushes, as it will make it easier to edit linework and recolourDON'T mutate the same creature over twice in a rowDON'T overdo mutations. A creature doesn't suddenly grow legs, intellect and fire-breathing.DON’T forget to link back to creature you have evolved when posting
And here's a handy diagram representing the place where our creatures will live; as you can see, Vermasia is a bit more varied of a place than My Island was, though not by much. It's much bigger, at least.
>>4046513Don't assume your home is safe just because every major predator is extinct, though; the land is permeated in Ralphie Radiation, a strange field that warps the bodies of all sentient creatures; over their lifetime, animals may be twisted into strange new forms - and pass some of their new traits onto their offspring, speeding up genetic diversification immensely.(what this translates to in game mechanic terms is, once per day a species can roll Xd6 where the X depends on the radiation level, if a die lands on 1 to 5 it gets a bad mutation that I will personally add, if it's 6 it gets a good mutation. These mutations aren't like normal evolutions because while normal evolutions have to make sense, these don't, so if anyone wants biological wheels or psychic powers better roll the mutation gacha)And with that, introductions end, and evolution begins.
el rato has developed a knife-based martial arts that makes it immune to porn
Rolled 1 (1d6)>>4046511rolling for the Pu-Laotl
>>4046551lol get dabbed onThe Free-Ear Pu-Laotl now has to breathe air, but also has skin that begins to burn off when in contact with air.
>>4046511Parmant develops side blades to aid in collecting Rice
>>4046524Also forgot to write out how the X in Xd6 is calculated, it's X=A*B where A is determined by radiation saturation in the region the creature lives in(2 for red, 1 for purple, 0 for blue), and B is determined by how vulnerable it is to the radiation(0 for immune, 0.5 for sensitive, 1 for vulnerable, 2 for very vulnerable)
>>4046511some rice started using ralphie radiaton to deter other animals from trying to eat them
>>4046567so do we just say where we think this strain of mutating species lives on the map?or are they all in one area?
>actually doing it on another fucking board so that vg continues being a shithole Why even associate it with vermin at this rate cunt
>>4046581look at this absolute retard lmao
>>4046572Right now everyone is evenly distributed, as creatures evolve they will have to choose one area to live in....OR if geopolitics combined with dozens of creatures and mathematical equations for mutation likelihood is too much for you guys I can just ditch the location part of the gimmick and just make everyone roll 1d6
>>4046599nah i dig the location stuff, just wanted to make sure i had the basis correct
Rolled 5 (1d6)>>4046541>>4046599so a roll for free range karats with knives(currently) would likely mean they're in the barren areas or evenly dispersed and they're vulnerable which would likely make their X=1*1
>>4046615The Birat can stab twice as much but also has to eat 1.8 times as much
>>4046511you know what they say four leaves is better then two leaves. if not *shrug* its still a good saying some rice develop additional leaves and darker in color
Rolled 5 (1d6)>>4046565this'll probably be the last roll we can do today since the rice is currently immune but here's Parmant
>>4046675The Longlip Parmant has a, well, long lip.
>>4046681this was way fucking funnier to me than it should've been
>>4046631Karat become black, for nocturnal stealth stabbings
>>4046700double black karat has developed [BLACK BELT], boosting it's martial arts power enough to be able to become an apex predator
>>4046681Can I get a better-sized version of the parment longlis
>>4046773what do you mean by "better-sized"?
>>4046785NevermindThe longlip, making use of the longlip it has as a truck/proboscis, allowing it to reach food that's higher above it
>>4046565Spiky Parmant has a stronger, spike-covered shell and a shorter lip for ground foraging
>>4046568The rice gets a seed shell, so it's baby is harder to eat
>>4046829it ball now
>>4046941Is it permenant, or is it a special ability 2 of them can do?
>>4046853you are making me hungry for rice puffs
>>4046966>BOWLING BALL ATTACK
>>4046957why'd they want to separate after going into this glorious position
>>4046700Double black karat has developed pack tactics. Groups of four Karats will group up and form a gang to make a defense against Parmant and Pu-Laotl easier.
>>4047058Different gangs have different colored belts.
>>4047058Pirate KuratCan use his ass independently. High only on his own shit.
>>4046853the hard rice put up even more defenses for there seeds by folding there leaves over the rice grain to hide them, with them being disguised among the immature rice of its own and other species of rice.
>>4046853The rice's seed shell has hardened more, allowing it to pass through the bodies of others, so, they've developed a red fruit, meaning animals will eat the rice fruit, and seed, and they'll carry it elsewhere in their stomach.
>>4046853The rice's seed's shell becomes thick and tough enough to survive digestion and a colorful fruit forms around the seed shell. Promoting animals to eat the fruit and then disperse the seeds in their poop.
>>4047129You stole my idea
>>4047129well this one waster more nutrition to make the "fruit" thats a rice puff with food colouring >>4047138this would be a mimic species that decoys themself as the mroe foody ones fooling teh animals to eat them but wasting less energy on there own part
>>4047154Your point is fair
>>4047058Gangs of Karats start claiming fruit rice fields as their territory. They kill any Karat who isn't part of their gang, Parmant, and Pu-Laotl who enters their territory
>>4047233OH GOD OH FUCK they are multiplying
>>4047233>welome tho tha rise felds MOTHER BLEEPER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGqT8N-MOPM
>>4046829The lip of the Armored Spiky Parmant recedes and it develops fangs. This species of Parmant is now carnivorous and hunts down Karats.
>>4047308WRONG NEIGHBORHOOD MOTHERFUCKER!
>>4046853due to a quite fucking weird mutation the rice grain grows in a loop forming a ring and it does not really do anything other then looking weird or sometimes falling down and getting stuck on dead stalks
>pu-laotls are getting left behind
>>4047455that's what it gets for being a swimfag and not a walkfag or a flyfag
>>4047242Sometimes the splitting process goes wrong and instead the two rats combine forming what is known as a Charat. Bigger and stronger than their karat brothers they are the leader of every gang telling the karats what to do.
>>4046653this species of rice thrive by mimicking the bait of the free-ear pu-laotl instead of it baiting semi decently making these fast growing small grained rice plants thrive and become a home for the baiting pu-laotl killing many karats trying to eat the plant causing it generally to becoming a clear sign of danger to avoid due to how likely it is to be killed >>4046683
>>4046511The camo pu-laotls have began imitating the fruit from certain riceplants (>>4047129) to lure unsuspecting prey to it
>>4047859Too much of a stupid shitpost? cause if not, I'd like this to become canon
>>4047859well its too much they cant even make bullets its like a single rat life time and then there are no bullets left
>>4047881what was prewar tech level? Could be recharger rifles.
>>4046559 Because their gills are now protected by the egg sack these pu-laotl's can last longer out of water, greatly increasing their territory. They still can't stay on land too long before their egg begins drying and becomes impermeable
>>4048126it becomes an easy target on land so karats just kill it
>>4047863Guns are way to OP at this stage to be cannon especially since they don't have the proper materials or facilities to make them.
>>4048149Still gonna be a meme.
>>4047538Inbetween the knives and the complex social sturctures are the karats intelligent, are they sentient?
>>4048164they speak and think through karate
>>4048164Their sentient, but on the level of chimpanzees.
>>4048244So stone age.
>>4048244A little more advanced than chimps
>>4047538>>4047242The Krats develop stone-age weapons and defense. Allowing them to fight of predators and intruders easier.
>>4046794parment's proboscis has stiffened, for feasting on blood, and has gained a set of gripping limbs
>>4046829The carnivorous parmant has grown a flexible stinger tail to use against the karat it preys upon
>>4048318poisoned tail or just stabby
>>4048318Carno Parmants now make use of internal poison that they are immune to
>>4047308Some of the Spikey Armoured Parmants lose their spikes and become more passive avoiding conflict to get food without gaining injuries.
>>4048503don't mind me just catching a ride
>>4048513Stole my idea once again.
>>4047124In order to make it even harder for the grains to get eaten the seedpods grow non-poisonous thorns
>>4048278The Karats seeing the power of the parants first hand try domesticating the passive ones. They manage to do so and can now ride them into combat and use them to collect the berries of rice stalks. This makes transportation over long distances easier and their combat skills deadlier.
>>4048560don't mind me just partaking in medieval combat
>>4047308In order to knock the karats and joutsrats off of their mounts some carnivorous parmants grow large beetle horns
>>4048560The pacified parnats are selectively bred by the karats to have long tusks. These tusks allow parnats to cut into hard hard rice stock to reach the seeds inside and are good for combat.
We really need more ideas for the Pu-Laotl's and rice or it's just gonna become an arms between the rats and parmants
>>4048126Ok so these fuckers developed a mfing long ass tongue that it can use to kidnap prey while on land and drag 'em to the water
Rolled 6, 6 = 12 (2d6)>>4048607new day, new Horned Parnats mutationalso i'm gonna assume that they're very vulnerable since it's a combo of two vulnerable species
>>4048644oh shit double 6
>>4048126Some pu-laotl have started filling their egg with mud and as such can last longer outside of the water before they begin drying up
>>4048644They're actually still only vulnerable rather than very vulnerable, as per the lore the severity of the radiation is dependant on intelligence and Parnats aren't very smart. I'd say the new tool-using Karats would be very vulnerable, though, so maybe try rolling for those.Anyways, the Jet Parnat has converted it's hornholes into high-power turbines, allowing it to traverse water quickly and even hover on land for a few seconds. The only downsides are the high energy requirements, and the inconvenient positioning of the engines.

Rolled 3 (1d6)>>4048691dice roll on the new muddy dudes
>>4048874Noted, will add them next time>>4048877The Muddy Pu-Laotl's dick greatly increases in size. In males, it grows 30 times larger, while in females it's only 29 times larger.
>>4046683The Free-Ear Pulaotl's protrusions change to resemble a more generic kind of rice in hopes of luring moire prey
>>4046511some pu-loatl, slim there eggsacks and lengthen there body allowing them to swim around with much better speed and less water resistance
>>4048278The karats start harvesting the stalk of the rice and form them into clothing. This clothing provides them increased protection against attacks and resistance to ralphie radiation.

Rolled 6 (1d6)>>4049404Roll on Pirat
>>4049643The First Mate Kurats have traded in their heads for a powerful multipurpose organ known as the Red Miles, capable of growing strands of up to 5 meters in length in a fraction of a second and retracting them just as quickly. The strands act as powerful limbs, brains, mouths and sensory organs, though they are notably lacking in that last regard.
>>4048889Having fully absorbed the oversized penis into the eggsack the Single-Tentacled Laotl uses it to catch prey instead of as a sexual organ .>>4049718 Homestuck reference spotted, nice

Rolled 6 (1d6)>>4047448Rice Hoop Roll
>>4049755They don't. They will die out in one generation because I'm an ~~idiot~~ evil and cruel god who doesn't care about them
>>4049504The Bonetail ains the ability to detach its tail to get away from anything that grabs its tail.
>>4048312The grabber parant becomes bipedal so it can reach rice seeds and fruits easier.
>>4049757To think all natural cereal is now a reality
>>4049134The karats learn how to make stone huts and start using the ivory from parmant horns for their tools.
>>4050052>My face when squick leave the unga bunga sticks outside the hut for any to steal
The Bipedal Parant evolves claws to dig into the flesh of it's enemies and to break the hard shell of some rice.
>>4050095fucking jewish beetle
>>4047124Some of the hard rice grows and antibody to the posion the parants produce allowing them to not die as their poison infects their waters.
>>4050052The karats develop the motar and pestle and use it to make an antidote for their parants posion by crushing Immune Hard Rice leaves into a paste and then drinking it with water.
>>4050175>>4050210>>4049152In response to its 2 food sources develop means of resisting its poison, the parment develops a new, vastly more deadly poison, which now also make up 60-70% of their body, making them inedible

>>4051276 Sorry but the list of species in >>4048868 said that Charat can't be evolved anymore for balance purposes
>>4051306Its only one guy, not a species. So how about its just a mutation
>>4051250Being 70% poison by body weight is already fucked up so I'm just gonna count that as their mutation, hope you don't mind.>>4049757Rice is immune, so can't roll, sorry.>>4051094The Camo Pu-Laotl's body dissolves into it's egg almost completely, leaving it a lumbering, slime-like blob, only dimly aware of it's own existence. On the plus side, it's now immune to Ralphie Radiation.>>4050396The Pirat's lungs extend greatly, allowing it to hold it's breath for up to half an hour but presenting a pair of large, easily damaged vital targets.
And the new evolution chart!Also for fuck's sake can we get some more Karats that AREN'T niggers
>>4049718Some of the mutated First Mates grow their light sensitive sensory organs into actual eyes. Despite the fact that these Scout First Mates can now actually see the eyes are a major downside in combat
>>4051736ok>>4051276this bitch white now it and it does everything gandalf does
>>4051732the waters call them they become animals again, mutating to become stronger becoming once more closer to nature devouring there former brothers with there snapping jaws
>>4050095The bipedal parant over time becomes smarter and evolves the abilty to communicate with karats allowing it to join their communities in exchange they provide protection. It is know known as the Parat.
>>4051732the slime evolved its internal structure forming organs and orifices to more effectively consume everything in its way
>>4050210The Karat social order becomes more developed. Kings begin unifying swathes of gangs into kingdoms and they appoint Charat as the lords of parts of these kingdoms called provinces. Religion becomes important in Karat society forms with karatisanty being a major religion. High priests are assigned to provinces to help manage the religion and priests preach to the local karat peasants. Parats form the backbone of the army and are used to fight off predators, pirate karats, and enemy kingdoms. Peasants make up the majority of the Karat kingdoms and they manage the rice fields and make weapons. Lighter furred Karats are seen as barbaric monsters because of the Pirate Karats, First Mate Karats, and Cannibal Karats.
>>4051736Several of the remaining normal Karat First Mates and Karat Pirates split off from their mutated brethren, enacting a vicious campaign of raiding and slaughter upon their degenerate former brethren to free their comrades from the mind control of the Red Mile Pirater Kurats, the slaughter leading some of the First Mates to evolve into Captain Kurats, scarred and belts stained bloodred by their mutated comrades, finally having managed to figure out how o make swords.
