    52 KB Primordial Evolution Game Indonesian Gentleman 03/26/12(Mon)21:27 No.18469745  
    Hello again! Let us continue with the evolutions, shall we?

    previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/18447772/

    The rules are simple:
    1) evolve a creature by modifying their picture and giving a plausible reason.
    2) only a single modification/upgrade may be made per 'update'.
    3) you can choose different species to upgrade.
    4) I'll be plopping some events which you can adapt your creatures to, and decide if any updates are invalid.

    There's a much larger choice of creatures to evolve for this current game, as well as two plants!

    First creature we have is the frowg. It is an amphibious creature living in the moss swamps, which catch small worems by using small electrical shocks generated by its large front legs.

    30 KB
    The next creature we have is the wesck, an agile aerial creature which preys on worems. It has a tough hide which protects their float bladders, and a pair of wings which provide locomotion. It also has harpoon appendages that it uses to hunt, as well as a stinger at the end of their tail.

    Another creature we have is the glund, a herbivorous offshoot of the worem. It has armor plating, and can roll into a defensive ball. It also produces offspring by giving live birth.

    Here we have the stalck, a sluck descendant which has adapted to a life of a land predator. Its armor protrusions have developed into full legs, and currently it hunts by ambush. Due to its coloration it's mostly nocturnal, and retreats to the humid moss patches during the day.

    59 KB
    Another amphibious-capable creature, the flouz is a rather slow creature possessing tough skin. It can survive being out of the water, but prefers the ocean. It can drag itself using two strong tentacles on the land, and it also has two phosphorescent patches to surprise prey or predator, as it is still a main staple of bladeworems.

    Another fus-derived creature, the pluup manages to survive in the humid moss patches, slowly devouring them. It has two strong tentacles to drag it around, and some protective tentacles housing stingers to deter predators.

    These are the available creatures for evolving, but there are still some in the ocean: the vicious bladeworems, which became this world's first superpredator, the flatworems which flourished in the ocean, and the dragonsluck which shares space with the wesck.
    On to the plants!

    And then we have the yantar, which is the interconnected bushlike plant I mentioned the last thread. It is a descendant of the moss, and it has cuplike leaves that can gather rainwater.

    There you have it, evolve away! Keep in mind that plant evolution will have an effect on the animals and vice versa.

    Guess I'll continue what I do best.

    The frowg's cartilaginous skeleton gives way to a ridged spine of cartilage discs, giving way to protection from wesck assaults upon their leather-yet supple backs. These strengthened spines reduce the frowg's pliability in favor of hardiness. Their lungs continue to slowly develop with the condensation of oxygen in the atmosphere. Their tongue becomes more ample and prehensile, able to extend beyond their mouth as an improved sensory organ in their pursuit of prey items.

    and oh, feel free to evolve more than one creature! You don't have to 'stick' to a creature, you know.

    frowg now preys on the aerial wesck, but its young and larvae are still vulnerable to predation.

    Due to the differing climates on land, the Yantar was forced to grow larger, longer, and stronger root systems, allowing it to reach water that was deeper while preventing the various winds and such that it did not face while rooted to a rock. This has allowed it to grow in places such as tree's, or various terrains while still retaining its original strengths.

    Also, that was a replacement of the previous plant (reading other thread)
    An off-shoot of the Evola slowly shifts colors, due to a somewhat mild toxin it begins to secrete. This is mostly due to the Glund, and serves merely as a mild irritant for those species that eat Evola.

    The Wesck adapts to have a longer body, and longer strips across their back in males. Though it doesn't help them be a better in anything specific (Other then as a filling meal) they evolved as such for sexual attraction. They evolved more legs to compensate for their longer bodies while grounded.

    PoisonEvola is starting to flourish in the coasts, due to decreased predation.

    PodYantar can find isolated muddy patches and thrive on them, effectively spreading a bit more inland.

    The frowgs begin to nest in the safety of the poisonous evola's cup, developing tougher hides that prove resilient to the toxins protrusions while completely losing their ability to preform osmosis. On a lighter note their lungs have fully developed and have heartily adapted to holding in air for prolonged periods of time while developing alongside the slowly vestiging skin-breathing traits. Their toes earn nimble minute claws in which to forcefully pry open curled glunds and shock their underbellies into submission.

    More spores are released from the strange purple flowers. As the plants begin to grow into the marshlands, they start to absorb some of the toxins present within the soil around them in the nearby bogs. The flowers take on a more hostile color pattern, and small mineral deposits form along the leaves to reinforce their large bowled leaf shape. The central leaf begins to take on a darker color, becoming a more dominant frond. The toxins begin to circulate through the plant and eventually poison the spores. The PodYantar now releases the toxins out of the soil and into the atmosphere around them as a defensive measure against animals trying to feed on them. The spores get into the creatures respiratory systems and cause them to shut down. The dead begin to decompose and rot into the soil, enriching it for the plant. The roots get thicker to gain some ground in the moist soil as well as to take on the added nutrients from the dead.

    Wesck gets hormone mutation, which causes them to develop pheromones.
    Actually, Stalck don't need to roll, but why not. Some Stalck which lurk around PodYantars gain a sort of adrenaline, which they can use to temporarily gain a boost of speed. This however causes them to lose a bit of lifespan if used a lot.

    Meanwhile, the tall PoisonEvola's poison turns out to be a bit beneficial to Fus descendants, which causes tougher, more waterproof membranes to develop.

    Meanwhile, Tall Evola in the marshlands are able to develop much larger leaves due to more water nutrients. The extra energy gained from sun absorption, combined with a wetter environment allows their root systems to spread much farther. In some places the roots for an increasingly dense "hub" of sorts.

    Due to increased exposer to toxins Stalcks intestinal organs have expanded, and become much denser. This tract is powerful enough to metabolize the enzymes poisonEvola dwelling Frowgs. When a Frowg is digested a new toxin is stored in the back abdomen. Prey pinned down by their pincers are injected with the paralyzing neurotoxin.

    This has lead to a new behavior in the Stalcks, who seem to be raiding frowg colonies periodicity, but never completely eliminating them

And the toxin isn't the kind that would kill, just kinda 'fuck what is this irritating feeling' kind of deal. Those brave or numb enough may still eat the podYantar.

    marshland Evola have grown a resinous stalk, and gives off pheromones similar to those of the wesck. Though not always successful, any Wesck captured are dissolved, as their innards are highly nutritious. Having few herbivores able to make much of a dent in MarshEvola population, the "hubs grow ever denser.

    The Evola now grow berries, which absorb and neutralize radiation in order to protect the main plant and its inhabitants from the poisons which it would otherwise hold no defense, while also serving as a natural method of spreading wider and further than algea.

    The frowg always had latent bio-electric capabilities. Its growing brain and predatory conflicts only brought back those recessive genetics into play. The frowg gains the ability to preform a method of "electrokinesis" in which it can emit powerful charges of electricity that contain a small magnitude of physical force behind them. Clever members of the species may lure stalcks only to knock them back down with a discharge of disorienting electricity. This once more raises their metabolism, promoting groups of frowgs to take advantage of their predators as potential prey items and tactfully await dropping stalcks to beat into submission. This does not come without casualties, allowing hardier survivors of these battles as perfect suitors to continue the frowg species.

    To attack these thick skinned beasts, the new Wecsky has evolved a hardened chitin spike in place of it's omnivore cousins proboscis. This allows them to ram the Flouz gas sack and hopefully rupture it, sending it plummeting to the ground below, where it is promptly feasted on.

    With increasing cultivation of toxins withing the plant, Pod Yantar develops a higher concentration of irritant able to disrupt the sensors of nearby animals. It's still in low dosages just an irritant to drive off, but with the additions of the low levels of radioactivity drawn from the soil it's also beginning to cause mild cases of sterility. These cases are rare but present.

    The root system has become more advanced in light of the recent Glunds burrowing ability, though little else is changed in ways of stopping it. Thicker roots, as well as specialized toxin collecting roots grow in place in hopes to deter the developing jaws of the glund worm. The central frond is becoming more dominant, and calcium from the soil seeping into the plant has strengthened the leaves structure and rigidity. Small spikes have formed in the bowl of the central stock, as well as deeper coloration.

    The plants now glow faintly in the dark due to the low readings of radiation in the surrounding areas.

    Due to many Stalcks being stupid enough to be eaten by its prey, and an overwhelmingly poisonous environment, only the the smartest, most aggressive and resilient have survived. The new generation has a much larger cranium, and a toxin absorbing digestive track that has nearly tripled in size. Any poison not converted into its own nuerotoxin is eventually metabolized into energy. The stalcks now elusively prey on the frowgs at night, and have no other predators...

    And an additional thought, any member of the swarm killed by the Flouz is promptly cannibalized by the swarm, to ensure their strength is not squandered. This also ensures that if an attack fails utterly, it is not an entire loss to the swarm.

    the ground glund after eating the lightly irradiated yantar have evolved a way to harness the plants radiation. By burrowing near the Yantar they absorb radiation with special cells. These cells, primarily in the stomach. This allows them to survive completely on soil. The radiation in their stomach cells break down the minerals with radiation and powerful stomach acids. It also has the side effect of giving them bio-luminescence, allowing them better sight underground.

    However because of this young ground glund must be kept near Yantar plants until they absorb enough radiation to survive. Because of this small chambers are dug below yantar plants where female Glund give birth to their young. This proximity is slowly causeing a tolerance in the ground glund population to Yantar poisons

The frowgs at first did not skim too far from their arks, adapting to feeding on the radiative berries, spreading the sporelings across the waves, and wesck offshoots that would follow these floating paradise out to sea. Soon they'd develop strong fin membranes and dive into the deep, feeding on the buffet of fus larvae and sea-worems.

    With agitation of the roots due to Glund's burrowing and nesting, the Yantar's root system becomes more diverse and hostile to combat this disruption. The roots grow deep to continue collection of minerals, bog poisons and radioactive materials, forming a thick toxic substance coursing through the plant. This causes it to glow brighter, and the roots themselves to become more toxic. When damaged, the thick sap seeps from the wound to form a seal.
    Giving way to the change, however, the plants soon begin to adapt and accept the newly formed chambers as the worms now provide a finer broken down soil. However, in light of their surviving off of the minerals and other resources in the soil the Yantar starts to grow sickly to it's limited food supply. Hopefully, digging deeper solves this problem.

    The prey must not get away.

    Due to the increasingly cold climate, nocturnal hunting is not longer viable. Even the healthiest of Wecsky become lethargic and slow during the chilly nights at high altitude.

    They now are forced to hunt during the day, their coloration fading to a pale blue over time.

    Their wings increase in size, more blood vessels now exposed to the sun's warming rays, giving them more vitality during the hunt.

    To ensure the fleeing gas bag can not escape, hooks have been developed on the front legs and rear stinger. If nothing else, sheer mass will weigh the Flouz down, and a dozen ripping claws will work their way through the leathery sack.

    With the increased wing size comes increased range, requiring less energy to fly for long periods, but more energy for short hunting bursts.

    They give the Frrilla isles a wide berth, the toxin build up amongst the natives too much for them to handle. Entire swarms will nest amongst them if their travels take them out to sea in search of prey, using mass numbers to scare off anything that would decide to eat them. If nothing else, a handful of the swarm dies, and another predator meets it's end as dozens of enraged Wecsky descend upon it with rending claws and stabbing mouthparts.

    Truly dangerous predators will be singled out by the swarm, lifted high into the air by a ball of angry Wecsky, and be dropped either on land or the sea.

    Do note, falling onto water from terminal velocity is like hitting a chunk of concrete.

    The collective minds of the Mevola hubs panicked when the snow began to fall, and its beloved marsh began to freeze. When the roots between the various hub minds began to wither and die, the hubminds felt alone... so they did the only thing there was to do, all of there electrical energy was focused on pulling the mind up, up above the frozen marsh. Cradled by their own tendrils and alone, the hive minds were now individual, and bitter and vengeful. The Mevola stalks that support them are old, and truly massive. Extra lightning stalks were sprouted to capture every last bit of heat. To many they seem dormant, but they can move with lightning speed, to impale and devour all who near them

    That looks fantastic! I can't wait to see if the colony develops more.
    Also, our alliance seems fitting. Sim biotic relationship is beginning to form as both our species provide for one another.

    Could your colony aid in warming the Yantar? I'd imagine your species will need warmth as well... Perhaps moss, or some other small plant life based from the newly lit chambers?
    I'll see what I can do with them next post, topside needs some work.

    Mind if I join in?

    Due to the increased predation, and the change in climate, a splinter group of Flouz have been forced to adapt.
    The sacks that contain the lighter than air gases have been reinforced with tougher skin plates.
    This increase of mass however reduced their ability to float in the air, forcing them back to the ground. In response, their main tentacles grew more powerful, allowing this new breed of ground bound Flouz to move swiftly by hopping around, as their bodies are still relatively light due to the gases they contain.

    After many generations in close proximity to the yontar the ground glund has metabolized the yontars many toxins. These toxins are either turned into energy for the glund or secreted by glands on the glunds underbelly. Because these toxins are so concentrated it is highly dangerous for non ground glund and yontar

    The frowgs remain virtually unchanged from a physical perspective. They begin to take note of the Frrila's manifesting desires on a subconcious level. Generations of their kin spent on these arks have formed a tightly knit bond with them. The colonies follow aromatic and electrical impulses, knowing just where to be at the right time. They've become the Frrila's protectors and primary defenses, akin to an immune system within the weaving networks of purple foliage and buoyant roots.

    Update on these things.

    The protective carapace on their air sacks start developing after the creatures are nearing maturation. The young Hoppers float in the air much like their ancestors, allowing them to spread over wast distances.

    The hoppers produce hundreds of these larvae, as most of them never reach adulthood.

    Microbials, fungus, and then of course the rest of the body of the Yantar.
    Calcium based reinforced stocks with fronds that are thick, with hairy bits as well. Spores are still being released into the air, effectively cultivating the land around it and keeping it fresh with its own self contained atmosphere so to speak.

    So long as wind doesn't pick up too much, the Marsh is basically their own little world. A self contained ecosystem.

    Think like an ant colony, leaf cutters cut up leaves and cultivate fungus in food chambers. Roots could be cut for food (the sap) or used to reinforce the nest walls.
    Calcium structure could be adapted into them as well! ^_^

    Due to the predation by the frowgs, and the Frrila's desire for something which flies, the Stalkcs grow wings, seemingly another portion of the Frilla's desire to reach out while keeping itself at the apex of suppliers.

    Thanks to the wings, the Stalkcs are more able to hunt frowgs, and on occasion deal with the roving bands of Wescks that will destroy a Frilla.

    The Pluup has undergone a massive evolution, perhaps nature's way of catching it up to all the other species. It's rear tentacle has gotten shorter and shorter until finally disappearing completely, replaced by the Pluups growing main body, sprouting three pairs of legs. It's front tentacle acts as a single arm, helping to pull the Pluup along as its short legs have difficulty over most terrain.

    after generations of exposure to the yontar's sterilizing toxin many females became infirtile. The ones that didnt flurished and become larger and larger and gave birth to larger spawnings. In time these spawnings became almost constant and thus the glund queen was first observed. The glund queen sits in birthing chambers. Here she is feeds on male glund. She punctures their bodys with he tendrils and feeds on them for up to three days, until they eventually perish. However during these three days she can give birth to up to 10 new glund. The birthrate of male glund to female glund has become almost 100:1. Females born are always glund queens and begin to feed upon the older queen. In the event a glund nest become to large the younger queen will sometimes take half of the colony and dig until they reach an unused yontar plant where they set up a new colony.

    The frowgs soon enough begin being predated by the stalcks at a quickened rate, but not to the critical point of extinction. They follow the desires of the Frilla to be willingly rationed in combative sacrifice against their airborne rivals in a sort of selective cycle determined by their host.

    The frowgs and stalcks were willingly killing each other to promote the breeding of stronger surviving individuals in the name of their trees.

    The yontar and glund continue to evolve in unison. The yontay begins to grow spongy moss like tissue on the tips of its roots where bio-luminescent glund light is visible. This spongy material is harvested by glund and placed into farming chambers where mushroom and other fungus develop. This fungus is then used to feed the glund as well as provide nutrients for the yontar when the fungus dies and becomes fertilizer.

    The yontar plant has also evolved honey comb like calcium over its leaves. This honey comb allows air through the many holes, and also keeps it strong against predators. Though it loses some energy generation, it is supplemented by subterranean gloom light photo synthesis.

    Even with their primary prey now mostly earthbound, the Wecsky continue their control of the day lit airspace.

    They only land during the night, and assume a ball nest, the interior slowly buzzing to generate heat during the night to ensure the survival of the swarm.

    To further improve their protection during these night time hours, a mutation, which only happens amongst the strongest (Or perhaps those who have been exposed to the floating Frrila isles for too long) causes them to lose their wings, and grow heavy shells. While alone they are no match for a single stalck, the pheromones released by a fallen guardian throws the slumbering ball into a frenzy. Following the scent of their fallen's fluids on the attacker, they rend the foe without mercy.

    Combined with the armored guardians and soarers, they can attempt to hunt down the bounding Flouz, with mixed success. Guardians always die, rushing in head long without regard for safety or survival, intent only on getting a good latch onto the Flouz and snarling them while their soaring kin move in with a hundred stinging swips before flying off, to avoid harm.

    They are the honored elders, too old to join the hunt, but still ready to give their lives dearly for the swarm. If they are not a part of a hunt, they spend what remains of their short time sunning on rocks, waiting for the buzz of their children over head to tell them it is either time to sleep, or time to kill.

    With possibly of other species attacking their homes and yontar food sources the glund have evolved a soldier class. These glund have elongated tendrils with mandibles on the end. These mandables are extremely sharp from cutting through soil and are hollowed allow those bitten to be injected with radioactive toxins or sucked dry of bodily fluids. The soldier glunds make pits and hide at the bottom of them, when an unsespecting prey enters the pit the glund bites with its many tendrils and drags the prey partial under ground so it wont escape.

    The Frillas have made their decision. They cannot nurture two species, especially one that refuses to stay so close to it. The Frowgs begin to adapt once more. As a conservation method in long waiting periods for food, the frowgs master the art of hibernation, huddled together in big lumpy purple clusters within chambers methodically sealed with mats of vegetation, only to be perked awake in an instant the moment a school of prey stirs the Frilla's network of roots. The lack of competition for space with the stalcks allows them to grow slightly larger. For now their existence would seem almost utopian. For now...

    The Pluup continues to evolve, over time doing away with it's long tentacle during the surge of more and more poisonous creatures. It's poisonous tendrils have been replaced by two poison pouches on its cheeks, also acting as a neutralizer to anything poisonous it may eat with its wide mouth. Being so low to the ground, its middle set of legs strengthen, allowing it to swim more easily and climb over obstacles.

    some worker glund have evolved a suction like mouth piece. This allows them to consume slime and is resulting in large amounts of toxins to build up in their bodies. When they become bloated they are fed to the soilders and queen to increase their volatility and often accompany worker glund to the surface. When on the surface the bloat glund move slower then their fellows. As a result when predators attack the bloated glunds move slower and are eaten/killed rather than valuable workers, and also deliver fatal doses of toxins to those attempting to eat them.

    Assuming from earlier posts that this strain of Wesck still scours the night?

    The Wesck under going a somewhat drastic change due the colder climates during the night. The Night Wescks branching off from it's diurnal brother have become more lethargic even during it's prime hunting in the night.

    It has compensated for this by developing a secretion from it's stringer which acts as a sticky sap.

    an event happened!
    One of the Frilla colonies, inhabited by loyal Frowgs and less-than-loyal Stalcks, has been blown off-course, and has been floating around in the ocean for some time. But now, they find themselves beached on a strange new land! Or rather, an archipelago!
    >place unlocked: islands. Wait for the new thread for this place, there will be indigenous plants and animals.

    Meanwhile, heavy torrential rains have descended on the mainland. The floods it caused have dislodged nutrients to flow towards the coast and out into the ocean. Of course, some Glund colonies have became flooded as well, and the flood have torn entire clumps of Mevolas and Yantars.

    the recent floods have cause many problems in glund colonies. However some bloat glunds have evolved to suck up water rather than toxins, these Gel-Glunds feed on water and combine it with other nutrients in the slime to created a sugar water. These Gel-Glund gorge themselves on water and slime until they grow so bloated that they are rolled to the fungus farm or queens chamber and allowed to burst, feeding nearby glund larvae or fungus.

    (also can the glund elect to get smaller and increase in number per colony?)
    (right now i figure the average colony contains 1 queen, 19 soldiers, 15 toxic bloats, 15 gel glunds, and 50 workers) equal to about a 100 per colony
    can they double their numbers of each and shrink by say 1/4 to 1/2?

    some Soldier Glund have evovled new mouths. These mouths are a combination of mandibles and spider like spinnerets. By recurgitating soil the glund can make a super hard structure. As a result this new breed of glund- Glund weavers spin low lying webs to catch winged predators seeking to ingest them. The webs have warning lines to soldier pits that when triggered cause all soldiers in the pits to move to the ensnared victim and begin draining it of tasty body fluids and inject it with toxins to kill it.

    with this new class of Glund, worker glunds have been able to gather food from the surface more easily, without as much fear of Wesck attack

    The Poisonous glund reacted to the cold and storm by eating more, getting bigger and thickening their carapace.

    They used their new senses to locate Mevola to eat, using flexible spikes on the tail of their carapace to ground themselves when eating and run dangerous current though the carapace into the ground.

    They use their increased size and durability to raid groundglund bases for food in times of scarcity.

    (I assume Flouz lack eyes, as at no point did I spot them developing those, in this thread nor in the earlier).

    Unlike many of the other creatures, the hoppers respond to the increased predation with speed, instead of poisons. The main tentacles of the hoppers are becoming more and more leg-like, as their increased muscle mas forces their pseudo bones harden so they can support the creature.

    In addition to this, their legs are now covered with the same kind of barbed hairs as the tips of their "toes" are. They serve both as extremely sensitive feelers, and defense against predators who might try to grab them, barbed hairs make grabbing them extremely painful.

    The growing amounts of poisons in the environment have forced the Hoppers to develop an additional stomach to properly neutralize the toxins.

    Their new and more active lifestyle has also resulted in the development of primitive eyesight, though it is mostly based in infrared.
    They have also developed pheromone glands for communication with each other.

    The new breed of Hoppers are opportunistic scavengers and omnivores. They feed o anything they find. They have bigger mouth parts and more developed secondary to help cracking open though shells and capturing smaller prey.

    The Hoppers still reproduce by spawning hundreds of floating larva, and although they have started to develop primitive sociality, they are still mostly loners, who do not take care of their young, and instead rely on numbers for survival.

Right now they benefit from the fact that they seem to be inedible to most of the species of the planet, while they themselves live off a combination of photosynthesis an internal breakdown of water that is then consumed as oxygen and hydrogen...which is then also broken down into carbon dioxide and more water..which is then photosynthesized again.

    With their increased capacity to digest toxins, some flouz have discovered the ample food sources that glund colonies provide, and have evolved multiple sticky, tounge-like tendrils that extend from the mouth for several feet, allowing the flouz to devour entire glund colonies. This leads to groups of flouz tending to gather near Yontar to feed, knowing that (due to the symbiotic nature of the yontar and glund) a glund colony must surely be nearby.

    As there are only so many glund nests, these new glund-eating Flouz have begun sharing meals, and traveling with, other Flouz. This herd mentality serves the dual purpose of locating more glund nests (thus increasing total food for the entire pack) and allows most of the herd to escape when predators attack, leaving only the weakest and slowest to be devoured.

    (First attempt at this, I hope I didn't add too much, or step on anyone else's Flouzing.)

    they also release spores that form microscopic versions of themselves, but much less evolved. they are usually treated as food by other microorganisms/ filter feeders and are more edible to the local life. if sufficient spores survive it will allow them to form a moss like carpeting in their immediate area with some fern like structures, they will also begin sporing, creating a light mist in the area. the moss is also highly edible to herbivores, but has a high protein content like meat.

    have to point out while the flouz has developed a secound stomach to help digest toxins, it hasnt developed immunity to the yantar's air born spores or tough skin to protect it from injected venom from Glund soilders.

    Also in response to the tongues incading the Glund nests, glund weavers have evovled to have serated mandibles. They now hide buried up to their mouths in tunnels and as a tongue passes my they clamp their cutting jaws shut. However this doesnt protect the glund that are near the surface or on the surface from these ravenous predators, but keeps the queen and food chambers safe so that the colony isnt entirely wiped out.

    Good point, actually sort of forgot about the radioactive cloud Yontars emit. That, combined with the venomous soldiers (and new chompy glund weavers) would explain why roving herds of HerdFlouz don't annialate the glund; they can't spend too long around the Yontar without getting sick (another reason so many of them can feed from the same Glundnest: they have to take turns being near to it).

    The LemUy have found an environment to call their own. Low laying valleys, caves, with a degree of dampness. Along the way they developed a symbiosis with a local incandescent bacteria. They now glow blue-green when content, or alarmed. With their more permanent location the spore to air density has increased. It is now apparent the LemUy have two methods of reproduction. Division like a cell, or Sporing...each stage of the micro LemUy ecosystem is actually a developmental period towards adulthood. Unfourtionatly it is rare to see a LemUy reach adulthood this way due to the LemUy simply rolling over and absentmindedly consuming the hopefuls.

They can now feed off of their local biosphere. Moss, detritus, carrion, in addition to breaking down water and sunlight for energy. This new food source allows them to breed faster in hopes of a new beneficial mutation.

    .one more evolution! The LemUy have created a nocturnal subspecies, they constantly glow, even during the daylight hours they are awake. The Noctrual LemUy have evolved sensory/ control organelles allowing them a greater degree of communication amongst themselves resulting in more nomadic behavior. It should be noted now that areas the lemuy have inhabited are now very, very thick with spores in the air to where the fog severely inhibits vision and could cause possible respiratory distress. due to their isolation to below sea level areas, and that the spore fog becomes denser then air as it matures thus falling like thick rain it never reaches significant height either, thus never leaving their caves and valleys.

    in response to the glunds new protective measures, the Tongued Flouz develop hard and barbed cartilage layer over the tips of their tongues, making them more resistant to damage. This however makes them lose their stickiness. Because of this, the Tongued Flouz now hunts by harpooning it's prey with it's tongues. The added weight of the cartilage and the muscle tissue needed for their newfound function has forced the tongues to become somewhat shorter however.

    The poisonous excretions of both the yantar plants and the Glunds have also taken their toll on the tongued flouz species. To quickly remove the toxins from their systems, they have greatly increased metabolism, which in turn has reduced their size and made their lives shorter.

    Although the majority of the most deadly poisons are either quickly neutralized or expelled, large amounts of toxic residue slowly accumulates inside the body of the Flouz, which also makes their lives much shorter.

    The old harpooned flouzes are sickly and shriveled creatures, as the toxins have slowly eaten them alive. Because of this, the harpooned flouz lives it's live swiftly. It reproduces when it's is young, as it's toxic diet won't allow it to live very long.

    This is why agricorps need to keep switching the pesticides they use every year or so - the bugs have such a short breeding cycle that they become immune to specific poisons extremely quickly.

    While the Chambered Flouz quickly started out-competing it's ancestors in their own niche, some of them managed to adapt to this newcomer.

    Because the Chambered Flouz was better in what normal Flouzes did in almost every respect, the Flouzes were forced to adapt. They took smaller forms, developed rudimentary wings from their rear tentacles and further refined their already existing propulsion system.

    These changes made them much more agile than their lumbering cousins, allowing them to move to another ecological niche, instead of competing for the same one with the Chambered Flouz.

    As the glunds bored ever deeper to the ground, the Flouz population started slowly, but surely dwindle. The massive harpoon flouz herds began to disperse, as the food sources ran dry. Those who survived, were forced to adopt another way to live.

    The Nomadic Flouz are smaller than their ancestors, they live in smaller although socially far more complex societies that are constantly on the move. They are opportunistic scavengers once again.

    Because of their more complex social structure, their pheromone glands have developed, along with their nervous system, that is starting to form numerous primitive brain like structures in the key parts of their body.

    Their legs have also adapted to the more mobile lifestyle, as they have become stronger and sturdier.
    The greatest development in their biology is their reproductive strategy however.
    Instead of releasing hundreds of small and defenseless larvae, the Flouzes instead carry the larvae inside themselves, allowing them to develop further, and thus giving them a competing advance against predators.

    The Running Flouz is a predatory creature, that is specialized in hunting other smaller creatures and ground bound flouz species, such as the now extinct harpooned flouz and their descendants the nomadic flouz.

    The barbed hairs in their toes developed into sharp claw-like hooks that give them a firm grip on the ground as they run.
    Their forward facing tentacles also developed these kinds of barbs, allowing them to grab their prey more efficiently.
    Their back tentacles gained mas and became more rigid and tail-like, giving the creature much needed balance for it's running.

    The Running Flouz hunts in small packs, and uses distraction to pick of the weakened prey, which it charges with it's sharp mouth parts first, ready to rip open the unlucky prey.

    The Boomer Flouz develops glands on it's underside that excrete thick slime, thus easing it's slow crawling over the ground. In addition, the slime traps small creatures, giving the boomer an easy way to get food.

    Bumbing with jet another Flouz.

    The most massive offshoot of the original Hopping Flouz is the Great Flouz. These sizable omnivores prowl through the undergrowth, and snag anything edible to their powerful peak like mouth.

    To support their increased mass, the Great Flouz developed larger gas sacks and sturdier legs. They don't jump around, instead they lazily mow down plants and animals alike that are in their way.

    They have extremely thick skin, and indeed, they are able to shrug off damage that would rupture a lesser Flouz. To ward of any would be predators the Great Flouz has developed two muscular whip like tentacles, that it can use to constrain it's assailants.

    Like their ancestors, they reproduce by spawning hundreds of larvae to the air, and hoping that at least few of them survive.

    A new variant of the winged flouz has developed longer wings, sharper peak and the barbed hairs in its toes have changed to sharp hooks.

    These fast flying creatures are specialized in hunting larvae of other Flouz creatures. They swiftly either grab them from air with their hooked tentacles or pierce them to their sharp peak.

    They have also evolved primitive eyesight, although they mostly navigate towards their prey based on scent.

    A cousin too the bladeworm have taken another evolutionary route. They have grown smaller, have a shorter life spand and reach adult hood sooner. They have increased birth rates.

    I had to pass out last night but Im happy to see the thread alive!

    The Mevola have made a few minor changes.
    The large base tendrils now have smaller offshoots, for more fine manipulation, thees are connected to the center of the tendril, which in turn is connected to the ''capacitor gue'' surrounding the brain. After their vast root system froze the Mevola had to acquire nutrients by other means, as fueling Its massive brain is no mean feat. One of Its gargantuan bulbs has specialized for this exact purpose. Sporting large metallic teeth however tends to scare away likely prey however, so the mouth generally is closed to look much like the other bulb, which has developed crude photo receptors and extra "lightning rod'' stalks. To attract prey non mature spores are released, whose job, when breathed or ingested in sufficient quantity hijack the hosts nervous system, steering it towards the mother plant. Not all animals are devoured however, some are made to ingest mature spores. The spores live in the digestive track and feed off of whatever the host eats. Weeks later a bulb with teeth developed and eats its way out, ''rooting'' on top of the host, and the rest of its body to speed up growth.

    A few colonies of underground Glund have gathered closer to the surface where competition is more fierce. Now blind but with excellent pheromone perception , swarms of glund now hunt at night for creatures to bring back to the Glund Queen. Instead of secreting goo, they now have goo sacks on their undersides, undulating them for surprisingly fast locomotion.

    Being even smaller, they have shorten life span, but increased birth rates. Also the now significantly smaller cousins, are grouping into larger and larger swarms.
    No visible change except size.

    With plant life growing more complex the foldworems begin feeding at the surface exclusively. To aid in this their six filter-mouths have become industrious intake ports, necessitating a larger stomach as well.

    The chamber flouz developing controllable vents that release excess air, for quick altitude adjustment, while also growing a back air nozzle to move more quickly. This increased mobility has lead to increased opportunities for predation and therefor increased size

    Been lurking a while, thought I'd contribute something.

    Meanwhile in the ocean:

    Thanks to their smaller size, the new breed of smaller Bladeworems are easy prey for their larger cousins. As a defense they lose their gliding wings, and adopt a more earthy colouration to better blend in with the ocean floor. Some have been observed making burrows by dissolving soil on the seafloor with their acid but as of yet this behaviour is still rare.

    Now that they feed on the boundary between sea and sky the filterworems are vulnerable to attack from above and below. A mutation of eyespots along the underbelly as well as the back helps clots of filterworems scatter to avoid the questing swarms of bladeworems.

    Given I cannot draw for shit.

    Several varieties of middle weight blade worms have started to develop large blades, that connect with folds of tissue giving them a form of Ray shape. they are primarily mid water swimmers and sometimes burst from the water to snatch prey.

    To supply energy for this they have lost their acidic saliva.

    Mevloa's photo receptors become much more advenced and numerous. They can can now discharge excess energy through the ends of their tendrils, to incapacitate their prey. Having no natural predators, Mevola now often grow to be 15 feet tall, although the oldest and craftiest are now 40 to 50 feet

    The Lemuy have grown a single giant glowing cilia from their nucleus. It can be waved about to attract the other species of the planet. This behavior indicates that the Lemuy want to groom the other creatures of their parasites, dead cells, and other filth. Internally the Lemuy have again increased spore production. The Lemuy biosphere, spores included, have reflected the luminosity of their parents and now at night entire feilds, valleys and caves emit a light glow. The spores are frequently brought to new areas by the Lemuy's client creatures.

    (We might be in autosage....)

    Chufluoz through consecutive breeding gain strong muscular tentacles, capable of fending off all but the largest wesck swarms, or simply for grabbing larger prey to eat.

    A variety of bladeworms get smaller, but they know are grouping into bigger swarms. Their head becomes slightly bigger to house the bigger ganglia inside. The Bladeworms are starting to use hunting tactics.
