    'sup /tg/?

    I'm bored and there's a teeny-tiny chance that I may not be able to game this week. That said, I gotta get my "fix" somewhere. Ha ha ha.
    I've never run a quest thread or anything, but let's give it a shot.

    Been interested in these "evolution games", let's try one of those.
    We begin on the world of "Fortune". It is a primordial world, and life has only just arrived within the ocean. Perhaps someday it will leave, perhaps not. Either way, it's a long, long way to sentience, so let's go over some groundrules.
    - One change on one creature per posting. Try to limit these changes to the small. I would like this to be gradual.
    - Color change is free, as long as you can explain it sensibly.
    - No "alien intervention" or "meteors from space" or "cosmic radiation". These changes will occur due to environmental pressures only.
    - No joke/fetish races/changes. (eg. no dick shaped creatures, no "reproduces-by-rape", and no creature-with-a-spine-so-flexible-it-can-kiss-its-own-ass)

    We have three creatures to start with. All have the sensory capabilites of a planarian, or some other simple creature.

    > Flipper
    Flipper is a mobile creature with a paddle-like tail that it uses to swim through the water. It eats plankton.

    > Pinkie
    A bottom dweller with 14 stubby legs. It feeds on detritus, sometimes substrate.

    > Wiggles
    Sedentary, attaches to rocks and catches detritus and plankton that pass by its feeding arm.

    Oh, forgot to mention, just edit the picture to show what adaptation you wish to give the critter.
    Explain the reasons why the adaptation occurred.

    Alternately, you can "split-off" a species from the main branch, rather than making it a furtherance of the previous critter.

    Have fun, guys and gals. I'll be monitoring this thread, either with more images, evolutionary trees, and/or random events.

    That's not the front. That's it's "bottom", like a sea anenome it attaches to rocks and catches what drifts by.
    Also, no predators yet, these are the only macroscopic critter on Fortune.

    Eyeless to eyes is kind of a big step. Perhaps it first gains basic "light senses", only able to detect changes in illumination, but no distinct shapes yet.
    >> FortuneHost 04/29/12(Sun)15:40 No.18909783

    Ah, fuck it. I need the bumps.
    Flippers move towards the sunlight, where the plankton are naturally richer (gathering to absorb the suns rays). Flipper population has increased.
    More Flippers at the surface means more bodies, creating more detritus for Pinkies and Wiggles.
    Pinkies population increases. Wiggles number have only a slight boost.

    Pinkies are able to reach more detritus is less time, able to fill their bellies and to find food for their young. Since the Pinkies are also scavengers, they eat the detritus of their own. This only adds to the food.

    The Pinkies experience a massive boost to population.

    No harm done. Also the spikes on the bottom of Wiggles have been retconned to help secure them to their little patch of rock (though the poster states to defend predators, which they did not, and still don't have).

    The Wiggles, with access to this new food source, begin to thrive. The Pinkies numbers take a hit, but they're numbers are large enough that they do not become endangered.

    The Flippers continue to dominate near the surface, their droppings and corpses providing the detritus that feeds the Pinkies, who in turn are food for Wiggles.

    Wiggles miss their targets less often, and the "learning curve" for hitting targets is no longer quite so steep. Wiggle numbers rise, and the Pinkies decreases (though not by much, as most Pinkies slowly learn to avoid the tan coloured flagella of DOOM)

    The flippers spend more time near the surfaces and develop a small pouch they can use to hold air, as well as holes to absorb air through. They can't breathe air yet, this just helps them float on the surface of the water effortlessly.

    So uh, it seems that I can't into MS Paint, whenever I use the new flipper image it becomes a blurry mess after I edit it, any idea why it happens? If not, could someone quickly draw the glowy orange pods on it for me?

    Meanwhile, a great, though unseen change occurs to the surface flippers! To further enforce their surface dwelling lifestyle, they begin to give live birth, no longer having to descend to the ocean floor in order to lay eggs. Their air pouch also expands giving them a small amount of noticeable bloat, and their eyes grow slightly larger, which I'll draw as soon as I can figure out how to use the base.

    While infant wiggles are detrivorous, feeding off the dead carcasses of whatever falls to them, mature wiggles are omnivorous, eating both plant and animal material- mainly the flippers which reside on the surface. A third spike grows at the end of a the feeding arm. Wiggles also move this arm in certain patterns in order to communicate. Males with larger spikes are favored during mating season.

    The floating flippers face a problem in that they tend to wash up on land with little hope of finding the water again - they develop a solution in growing and stiffening some of their feelers. While these thicker feelers are no longer suitable for hunting, nor as powerful as the deep sea flippers' arms, they allow the surface flippers to drag themselves on land. Some further use this to their advantage in order to drag pinkies off using the land and friction.

    >Jumping ahead a little here, the sea-porkies still exist.

    Land porkies exist in a very similar way to their underwater ancestors; they still work using a basic system of organs and ingest gravel and plant matter through the perforated skin on the underside of their backsides, routinely dragging them across the ground as they walk.

    They move in herds of ~20, lead by a partnership of the largest male and female. The entire herd communicates using the same chemical signals as they had in the water.

    Their vestigial legs remain though the 'arms' of a sea-porkie have become stiff legs that allow bovine-like movements; they cannot jump and have wide turning circles. The lengths of their old 'legs' now contributes to picking an alpha pair and displays of aggression.

    Their rock/chemical expeller still works and, using a variety of enzymes, can; launch small rocks, release a fine spray of dust and emit powerful smells to deter would-be predators / mark their territories.

    A lot of tentacle pinkies die on the land. Some of them are able to go back to water with their tentacles.
    A few of those who are on the land survive, and adapt : they lose the sensitive hairs on their back tentacles, and can breath air through them instead. But they are really helpless and can't see anything on this land, so they tend to walk randomly, and stay on a spot where they found food.

    Whilst naturally still allowing the passage of chemicals, their skin hardens to a tough leather.

    They also learn a new technique of turning round quicker, involving bending their back legs and kicking down with a single front leg, pitching them to the side. It's clumsy but it helps them use their ejectors more efficiently.

    A subspecies of wiggle has evolved beyond the need to lay eggs in the water, burrowing their eggs in the sand to keep them from predators.

    This new sub species makes a transition from omnivore to herbivore, as more and more of its prey develop toxins, growing large mandibles to cut through plant material. Its feeding arms become weapons to defend its nest, as well as to fight for mates and territory.

    I'm impressed with how discreetly you went from a blob to purple jellycows.

    Surface flippers become increasingly amphibious - their dragging tentacles stiffen further, and grow suckers at the tip, easing travel and even allowing some basic manipulation; their musculature changes to allow snake-like slithering. They begin to spend more time on land to avoid deep sea flippers and pinkies, and tend to move further inland. They begin to eat blue eggs when they can find them, but largely feed on the plankton that washes up on land. They absord sunlight on land rather than at sea and by this point their airbag has become a fully developed lung system, with a protective covering around the air holes. Their glowpods also become more vibrant, which proves a disadvantage against deep flippers.

    I dub these creatures [spoiler]floppers.

    The floppers begin developing a longer, more serpentine physique to further adapt to life on land. They also lose some of their hard underbelly scales, and become almost entirely land-based creatures, capable both of slithering and of using their feelers for locomotion. They enter the water only to feed on plankton when other food sources are not abundant enough, and band together into larger groups of upwards of 60 floppers at a time. They begin to climb to higher places, often using their suckers to tackle cliffs, in order to absorb more sunlight.

    I do wish Mr Fortune was around so I could ask him about the land plantlife, my dream of flippers being crazy fucking arboreal snakes in so close.

    The spikes on the land-based subspecies have shrunken down. Now called the swaggles, these creatures use their feeding arms to fish for prey, reverting back to their omnivorous nature. They have also turned pink.

They are not yet ready... thought they soon (soon in geological timescale) will be. Who shall be first to break unto the new, dry world of land?

    Note: I didn't want to force crawling onto land, I mean, if folks want, we could eventually end up with a civilization of mer-men and Space-Atlantis if you want. That said, if land is wanted, it is ready.

    The creatures, if they choose to land, have a number of herbivorous options available to them (the first critter on land will *have* to be herbivorous, unless you have a *really* good alternative). Later creatures can also be herbivorous, or they could feed on their predecessors. Each of these three food sources has benefits and drawbacks.
    For now, I'll be the only one who can "evolve" plants, but you guys have impressed me so far, so I may just open the flood gates and let you guys have at it with the flora too.

    > Banana Leaf
    A small tuberous plant. When young, sprouts' leaves are bright yellow, but as the sapling approaches maturity, the leaves turn a rich green. Note that the brown bulb is underground.
    - Banana leaves are relatively common and contain a fair amount of nutrients, but take a long time to reach the reproductive age (6 earth years) and, as such, their numbers cannot be easily replaced. Any animal that chooses these as a food source must brave the alpine cliffs that the plant calls home AND be careful not overeat their dinner to extinction. Can be found in mountainous regions, tundras, and colder temperate zones.

    > Red Lichen
    - Very rare, but RICH in nutrients. So much so, that eating red lichen provides just as much energy as a carnivorous diet would. The only problem is that to become so nutritious they basically "vampirise" dying plants. If unchecked they can drive other species to extinction. They are also very toxic. It's a gamble, but to some organisms, its worth it. Seen in temperate to tropical forests.

    - Common as all Hell, grows quick. Only problem is that it is nutritionally deficient. Grows almost anywhere.

    Following years of relatively stable climate, Fortune has started a progression into an ice age.

    Temperatures have started slowly decreasing. Most species on the land are now being exposed to a winter season of extreme cold, and sub freezing temperatures for 75% of the year.

    Ocean temperatures have decreased as well, though still remain unfrozen for all but the polar regions.

    Temperature changes will occur over the course of the next 3 evolutions. Dress warmly

    Damn, I meant Non Gent. Pardon the slip.
    Also, I figured while the creatures work towards crawling on land, I'd give you guys some plants you're *free* to evolve. Some are aquatic, others are land-based.

    >Vampire Lily
    The Vampire Lily lies on top of the water with long roots that extend underwater. Similar to an Earth jellyfish, the Vampire Lily uses some of these roots as "stingers" injecting their prey with a powerful neurotoxin. Other roots are hollow and pointed, which move towards stunned prey and drain them of bodily fluids. Vampire Lilies are often found on the open ocean.

    > Water Berry.
    Another lily, thought this one hugs the shallower seas, at most around 50 miles from the coast. They tend to grow in "clumps". The Water Berry spreads it seeds through bright red berries that lie underwater and are distributed through the droppings of creatures that eat them. The seeds absorb nutrients from the dung and are light enough that they float to the surface, to quickly grow their lily leaves in order to harness the suns rays.

    > Mud Scrub
    Growing in mud pits and sometimes the edges of ponds (like reeds) the Mud Scrub is a large hedge sized plant that resembles an oversized corn husk. Its leaves are tough and fibrous.

    > Curly-Q
    Similar to Mangroves on Earth, Curly-Qs grow in large swamp groves, with roots that stand like stilts above the water's surface. A tree-sized trunk of warty, wet tissue (more like a giant flower stem than any tree trunk) that leads into a few large palm-like leaves, the central one curling into the distinctive shape around the time the plant reaches sexual maturity (about one year).

    The Spiked Flippers that stayed in the ocean have developed their weapons arms further, now using them for fighting for mates as well as defending from predators, for which they've also grown armoured plates on their underside as well as getting overall larger in size.

    While still photosynthetic like their ancestors the new nutrients demands of their larger size and weapons means they adopt an omnivorous diet, eating and water berries they can find and consuming the bodies of predators they've killed in self defence.
    >> FortuneHost 04/30/12(Mon)01:53 No.18917163
    Spiked Flipper herds roam the seas, spreading far and wide. As a result their numbers increase, but are spread thinly across the planet's seas. Their droppings also help to spread the seeds of the Water Berries, which can now be found much further out to sea.

    Deep Sea Flippers quickly become apex predators of the dark sea bed abyss. Their diet of Pinkie and Porkie descendants sustains them, and their numbers grow, while Pinkie numbers finally start to take some major hits. Eventually, both populations stabilized.

    >> FortuneHost 04/30/12(Mon)02:09 No.18917369
    Ah, I was just about to mention how little love the Wiggles had been receiving. Nice timing.
    The newly camoflauged wiggles begin to thrive, though they are sometimes eaten by the larger Spike Flippers, but given the creature's omnivorous diet, the Flippers don't care.
    Smaller creatures that feed on water-berries though provide good hunting for the Wigglers.

    If anyone wants to make an evolutionary tree, I'd be most grateful. I'm kind of at a loss as to what evolves from what and if it's a branch-off or a continuation.

    From now on, "quote" the post you're adapting from and make sure that, if branching off rather than evolving, you *specifically mention* it being a branch off.
    Hope that isn't too demanding. Otherwise, carry on, gents and ladies.

    The Armoured Flippers continue to armour up their bodies. Their front arms also develop an additional joint to aid in shoving food into their mouths. The rear pair enlarge and grow a membrane between them, allowing the flipper to swim faster.
    Speed has become the primary trait of competition between males for mates, the female will swim out to deep water and slap her tail on the surface of the water as a signal, any males in the area that hear it race to her. The fastest often getting the prize, though its not unusual for a larger male to kill a rival that arrived before him.

    Good work man, it's funny how they all seem to develop horrible tentacle feelers independently. Something strange with the genetic code on this planet.

    Surprised this thread is still going, nice to see fortunebro approved of our changes. The climate change is interesting, let me whip something up real quick, probably my last couple of contributions for the day.

    The floppers continue to elongate, gaining an almost entirely serpentine physique, losing their harder scales, and gaining protective eyelids on their more vulnerable light organs. Their feelers are strenghten becoming more nimble and providing ease of climbing, allowing access to safe basking spots.

    They deal with the change in climate by absorbing more sunlight, and using it more efficiently - their entire body grows to be even more sensitive to light, and their black stripes begin to pulse with a dull purple glow.

    They become pack animals, and gain the traid of being almost entirely omnivorous. They feed on plankton and water berries mainly, this being the only time they enter the water. They move out to sea at feeding time in groups, using numbers to protect themselves from predation by larger flipper species. On land they will eat blue eggs, blues, stray porkies, and edible plants.

    Black surface flippers expand their air pouches, gaining the ability to produce hot gasses from the plankton they consume and their photosynthesis, and gain the ability to float a small distance above the water. This allows them to avoid larger flipper species.

    >> FortuneHost 04/30/12(Mon)11:11 No.18920796
    The Wiggles now possess sexual dimorphism. While disguised as Vampire Lillies does deter some predators, efforts at population growth are hampered by cases of mistaken identity, where male wiggles try to embrace *actual* Vampire Lillies and end up as food instead.

    Wuggles' bodies will be ready for the coming age of ice soon. The Wuggles numbers increase, and as their traditional hunting grounds grow too crowded, they spread to many areas of the ocean and can even be found in rivers and swamps, allowing access to species not previously present for consumption.

    The Tiger Flopper packs are sluggish, but their bodies are so large that many predators avoid them, that said, they are now sometimes attacked by Wuggles when they foray into the water.

    The newly-developed Blade Flippers now put up fierce resistance to Wuggle domination of their territories, especially the Curly-Q Swamp Forests. These swamps become a fierce battleground in the developing biological arms race. The loser being reduced to mere prey-beasts, to be devoured by the victor. The Tiger Flopper packs are caught in the middle, but their number hold for now.

    Dominating the sea floor, feeding on detritus, corpses, and other deep sea creatures, the Abyss Flipper continues along a different path than its Flopper cousins.
    >> FortuneHost 04/30/12(Mon)11:31 No.18920930
    The Deepsea Flippers continue their reign alongside the Abyssal Flippers as kings of the lightless realms of the deep sea.

    In addition, some males develop bioluminesence on their fins, creating dazzling technicolor displays unique to each individual. At first this hurts their efforts at attracting prey, as it effectively broadcasts their arrival, some lineages only posses these lights during the midsummer mating season. Such lineages eventually arrive on top of their 24/7 laser show brothers.
    The temporary mating-season-only lights only serve to heighten the usual urgency of courtship, as the lightshow does not abate until the individual male copulates, and until said lights dim, prey is exponentially harder to catch. If a male does not find a mate quickly enought, they may starve as their mating displays drive away their main sources of food. (Yes, they scavenge and feed on detritus, but such meager helpings do not sustain them for long and leave them rather weak.)

    * I know it's a bit unorthodox for the DM/GM/Host to provide an evolution, but this was one that was, to me, too interesting to not post.

    In preparation for the big chill and in response to their swampy environment, porkies learn to regulate their body temperature up and down by coating their bodies in mud.
    Naturally, this hampers their ability to release chemicals so their herds become much tighter-knit; each tending to keep to their own wallowing hole which slowly takes on the individual scent of its herd.

    Also included a diagram of their 'mouths'. Porous holes have grown into 2 slits with powerful muscles either side; the porkie waves its posterior over a mud scrub and flexes its 'lips' to grab and chew the plant.

    The Wuggler's new shells prevent the two species of sea-bed dwelling Flipper species (the Abyss Flipper & Deepsea Flipper).

    That said, the Flippers are taking the majority of the resources, and the Wuggler begins migrating to higher elevations. They are still fairly deep, but no longer are they exclusive to the ocean floor.

    Alright, thanks for clearin' that up.

    Flipper neoserpentis, or Oceanic Flipper as it is more commonly known, begins to spend less and less time eating, as the photosynthesis within its body provides a large amount of the nourishment it needs. While it still must supplement its diet with other organisms, there may come a day where such is no longer the case.

    Also, I've updated the Wiggles/Wuggler evolutionary tree. I think you'll find it much improved.

    An offshoot of black flippers finds their floating ability most useful. Their air sacks increase and become a part of their digestive track allowing to fill them faster. Small sphincters in the sides allow them to shoot a jet of gas, gaining a considerable speed.
    In addition to it, a combination of small side flippers and tails shorter and much wider allow for greater maneuverability.

    Blues are not the only one aerial species anymore.
    >> FortuneHost 04/30/12(Mon)15:05 No.18922568

    The black floppers soar gracefully on the warm ocean currents, occasionally diving down to skim the surface of the water for surface plankton.

    While Blues are also an aerial species, for now, the two organisms have little contact. While the ebon blimps patrol the open waters, the little Blues remain limited to short bursts of flight, and are landbound.

    Those evolution trees could probably benefit from notification of some sort showing where those creatures live and what they eat.
    Something simple, like the attached thingie I've spent ten minutes on (you can do better, I know it).

    In this example the outer circle shows whether the animal is carnivorous (red) or herbivorous (green) or lives off photosynthesis (yellow). The inner circle show its habitat: blue for water, green for land, white square inside means it can fly.

    Please note it is only an example and is nowhere near good. I just think it would be helpful to have something like this.

    Don't be sorry, you pretty much caught me red handed.

I suppose it's only natural the names I came up with were the kind present in kids' television.

    The floating blimp flipper develops a trunk structure, allowing it to fish for, and filter plankton without entering the water. Their eyes begin to lower, allowing them to keep an eye on the surface of the water, and for approaching predatorial flippers.

    Their light pod arrangement also changes and becomes more haphazard, as they begint o put on increasingly elaborate lightshows, taking advantage of their relative safety from predators. Lightshows becomes a group activity.

    You know what, I'm going to go ahead and say wait for the next one. It should be around in a few minutes.

    Great game everyone, thanks to all who participated and made this quest such a smashing success. A brofist to be had for all.
