    Previous thread:

    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.

    A regional distribution would likely help too. So we know what lives where.

    From what Ive been working on: Whale Kafka, Deep Roha and Remora Phou exist in all 3 environments. Whale Kafka migrate across the planet and visit each of the three reefs to breed along the way. Remora phou are along for the ride. Deep Roha lurk on the outskirts of the reefs in deep water, and ambush the younger whale kafkas as they leave the safety of the reefs for open water.

    Memories of the first Evolution Game right there (Cave game). Photosynthesizing blob-creatures. It's not as bad as mobility for a species that generally doesn't move around.

    If they weren't already present, the Leaflurker Roha gains jets. Water intake higher up on their bodies, outlets near their mouths. Not only does it allow them to move quicker, it also helps create suction to hold them in the Oja cup better.
    If they already had jets, they now works like that.

    Would it be a problem If I went to the archive to retrieve the plant BD table for the Ojo?

    That would make the most sense.
    I suggest that we switch the rolls between these two.

    Because really, a cave dwelling species that lives far from the surface and generates powerful elctric fields woudln't gain really anything from photosynthesis.
    The leaf lurkers on the other hand already live within plants near the surface. One could explain the photosynthesis as symbiosis between the ojo and the roha.

    ((Did somebody say....BLACK DAWN? Why....I think they did.))
    The sea floor splits open, in numerous small cracks. Water temperature rises by about 15F degrees at the surface, and 30F degrees at the sea floor. If anything, the waters have grown more tropical. Nutrients flood into the water from the innumerable thermal vents. The rest of the world is burning, screaming, and dieing. In the tropics things are fucking peachy, indeed, conditions for life are better then ever.
    DICE...GOOOOO!!!! in the email field type this: Dice 1d16

    1 Grow larger
    2 Adapt to temperature increase
    3 Grow armor plates
    4 Grow Spines
    5 Gain Poison
    6 Gain Electrical attack
    7 Gain Thermal attack (increase heat via chemical reaction around yourself)
    8 Gain increased mobility (choose how to reflect it)
    9 Gain exoskeleton for armor
    10 Gain Increased bone density for durability
    11 Gain increased muscle mass
    12 Develop pack tactics
    13 Develop limited air breathing
    14 Develop photosynthesis

    You know, even if conditions are nice here in the water, the Black Dawn should make it so that sunlight is blocked by clouds of smoke and volcanic ash in the air. Consider that, NG's original plant list would make sense even for here.

    After cataloging all the regions, I realized the central area was relatively sparse as far as unique variants go... so lets make some.

    A massive seismic event happens off the coast, near the central reef. It tears open a large faultline and reveals a long buried undersea trench. This new area of vast resources now splits the reef practically in two. Slowly, the reef begins to claim this trench and add the unexplored depths to its geography.

    The tank rohas develop specialized glands in their water jets, that allow the creature to quickly heat the water inside their jet chambers hot enough for it to boil. The resulting vapor bursts out with immense pressure, allowing the rohas to make quick bursts of speed.

    They also use this heated water for defense, by squirting it towards attackers, or when in groups by forming walls of heated water and vapor around themselves, deterring and obstructing any would be predators.

    The flipper rohas have adopted a new strategy to evade the now more electrically resistant slizers.
    They boost out of the water, and start skimming above the surface powered by their water jets and powerful flippers.
    This usually confuses the slizer enough to allow the roha to quickly escape back to the corals, when they re enter the water.

    These maneuvers in the air have also revealed that the rohas can absorb small amounts of oxygen from the air trough their skin.
    Although not jet evolutionary very advantageous, this traits allows them to operate slightly longer above the surface, when they attempt to escape their pursuers, although they do need to return to the water for more water for their jets.

    Since the walker roha are slow plodding creatures, they need to be able to see predators approaching from farther away. Thus, they develop improved sensing organs. They are able to extend out from the body on short stalks that are retractable. Allowing for a longer field of input. The shell piece still covers them while they are out, but also increases in size to protect the important organs.

    There is no way I could draw that and not screw up the amazing picture you've got going, so Im gonna draw this quick idea and let you interpret it to the actual picture.

    The Tank Roha need to be able to see better too, but due to their design, they only need to be able to see in one direction to acquire food. Thus, their organ develops similarly to the walker, but larger and focused forward.

    As much sense as that explanation makes I don't really think we need more predators for that matter, since there almost seems to be a trend of the main way of surviving is to start eating others before they eat you.

    The Boost Roha/Tank Roha develops eyes that allow it to accurately track and pinpoint potential prey, which allow it to charge them more effectively, ensnare them and pull them to the crushing shield claws.

    The Walking Roha on the other hand develops eyes that allow it to monitor it's surroundings much better, especially anything lurking above it.

    Frickin sweet man... Ok. One more request. Since the Boost Roha are charge attack predators now... I think their graspers need some work... they're all coiled up like that and it makes me think that perhaps they start getting some traction out of their former tentacles by making them able to lash out at incredible speed.
    >> Anonymous 05/11/12(Fri)09:43 No.19066271
    Humm... Good point. Ok then new idea. They use the thermal 'attack' to defend themselves from predators similar to japanese honey bees trying to defend themselves from Suzumebachi. They gather up tremendous amounts of heat in their bodies by vibrating inside their shell which makes them too hot to eat, as such larger predators like the Whale Kafka spit them out after a moment or two
    >> Anonymous 05/11/12(Fri)09:48 No.19066298
    And maybe because of this, their shells become more spiral shaped and grow hollows that help them store/gather heat better like the coil of an oven. And as an added benefit, the thermal roo find roosting on their shells easy since normal roo die off because of the heat
    >> Nad 05/11/12(Fri)09:48 No.19066303

    In water, vibration doesn't generate that much heat.
    A better way would be that they expel chemicals that are inert within their bodies, but when they are mixed together, and then expelled to water, they quickly react, causing the water to boil around them.
    >> Anonymous 05/11/12(Fri)09:50 No.19066314
    Make it so. Perhaps they store the chemicals in special pockets of their shells and vent them out like a squid would with ink, but instead of mundane ink, these chemicals react (maybe ala Sodium) and ignite briefly for a mini-depthcharge effect?
    >> ecologyfag 05/11/12(Fri)09:52 No.19066323
    they could also use the bombadier beetle strategem. Which is to produce compounds that react to generate a lot of excess heat and irriation. Hogweed also does this and that stuff will only react when you expose it to sunlight.

    In the central reef, the unstable environment makes it harder for walker Roha to get around, so they start to adapt a variant in this region that is more horizontally oriented than vertical.

    Doesnt necessarily need a change in design. Just pick a type/place off attack and add the animation of the attack. Will it be a jet of heated chemical acidy stuff or perhaps a tiny slime encoated blob of chemical that it shoots and after a second the slime melts away in the water, exposing the chemical that ignites and blows up?

    Like their shelled cousins, the flipper roha start developing light sensitive patches. This development was hindered by their already quite adequate electro sight, that allowed them to track prey and threats well enough. Their new tactic of jumping out of the water however was the needed trigger to start this development.
    With the light sensitive patches, they could now accurately locate the surface, instead of relying on their electrosense, which was not as reliable at producing accurate information about anything other than the movements of other creatures.

    Btw, is anyone going to do the update on the rolls made for the lurker rohas and the cave rohas/electric rohas?
    I still think that the results between these two should be switched, in order for the adaptations to make sense.

    Really, the best thing that could happen is for smaller individuals to rise out of the population or perhaps ones with no plating, they technically don't need it, most apex predators as the saying goes don't need armor they're the ones who give you a reason for it. Evolution is a fight between complexity and conservation of energy. A species will ditch anything that won't get it a chance to spread its genes or enable better survival.

    thing is they can develop other traits to get around that, evasions techniques, spines instead of shells, camouflage etc work very well to avoid predators. Also wouldn't the parrot Kafka prefer Reefs as they're rather easier to catch? Roo coral would provide an ample energy supply for a species like the kafka as well be far easier to catch than most. All it would have to do is ramp up Repro rates to deal with it and perhaps create stinging cells in some species.

    While the Cave Roha seldom leaves its home cave it is sometimes forced to do so, usually from growing larger in size or when food has been scarce. Some Roha have their side fins webbed and they become stronger and help both in swimming between caves (giving the Roha the ability to change direction at a moment's notice and swim forwards) as well as pulling in when in the cave.

    There aren't many flying critters around I am afraid.
    I too have an idea how to expand on the fly roha.
    My idea was that they would start hunting critters swimming near the surface, by flying over them and snatching them from the water.
    They would still be waterborne creatures for the most of the time, but their flying capabilities would have improved somewhat.

    The walking rohas living in the western reefs, near the archipelago have gone through numerous minor adaptations.
    Their legs have grown longer, their shell has atrophied slightly from their backside, causing their balance to shift while also reducing their weight. Most importantly, their tentacles have gained grasping ends that allow them to grab prey easier.

    The fly roha develop even bigger fin muscles, which allow them to fly quite long over the water. They eventually will have to return to the ocean though, as their ability to absorb oxygen from the air isn't efficient enough to fuel them completely.
    The teeth in their tentacles have grow longer. They use these harpoon like fangs to impale and snatch prey that comes too near to the surface to feed on plankton and on creatures eating the plankton.

    I must note that there are still normal, non flying flipper rohas left.

    The fly rohas develop a chamber within their body cavity that is filled with a mixture of air and methane.
    This gas bag allows the creature to both easily alter it's swimming depth by filling itself with water, and to fly easier in the air by expelling the extra water.

    They still need to return to the water for proper breathing, but their ability to absorb oxygen from the air has improved over time.

    The western walking rohas develop paw like endings on their legs that allow them to grab on to the coral more easily. This adaptation also allows them to move more easily trough rocky terrain.
    Surprisingly, small populations of these creatures have started to live in the shallow and rocky waters of the archipelago, in where they feed on the local fauna. They aren't a different species from the main population yet, but the different environments are starting to differentiate the creatures.

    Their shells also become even more compact, which reduces their weight and thus allows them to move faster and support their more active hunting style better.

    While expressed or not, it seems everything related to the Evola have genes related to blurring the line between plant and animal. The Melova, Melovites, Frilla Trees, and Ragas are proof of this. Something in the water must be turning these genes on in the Ojo.

    The fly roha are finally able to fully breathe air.
    The water jets and the adjacent water chamber gain additional blood vessels under a thin coat of skin and mucus, through which the oxygen can easily pass to the bloodstream of the creature, when it forces air to move through it's jet system.
    The creature can still use it to jet in water, and it actually makes extracting oxygen from the water even easier.

    These creatures can live both in water, and above it. They must still lay their eggs in the water however.

    Something odd happens in the Eastern Reef, a Boost Roha swims too far from her swarm and gets snatched by the hungry arm of a Lusconemat forest. Desperate she signalls for help which gets an amazing response. The huge swarm swoops down on the Lusconemat forest which is overwhelmed by the numbers of the swarm. The battle is bloody, but in the end the Boost Roha manages to cut off the Lusconemat's arms. Suddenly the big coral goes from being a mortal threat to a buffet of food.

    Thanks to the immensity of this particular specimen of coral several parts of it survive and it manages to prolong its death by years. A period over which the Roha manages to breed and reproduce time and time again. Old mouths are now breeding chambers, constantly guarded by a small group of Rohas, while others hunt and bring back food.

    The flailing stocks of the Ojo become strong enough to lift the tuber from the ground, ripping off the small, fast growing roots; and the photoreceptors improve as well, becoming simple, colorblind, compound eyes. Small herds of Ojo wander around their home reefs, living off their starchy reserves until finding a suitable place to plop back down and take root again. We now have walking potato Ojos.
    The Roha just sort of sit there for the ride.

    I don't want to ruin your party but The Cystonemats (including Luscanemat which is just large Cystonemat) are poisonous. And the poison isn't some pansy poison that kills you. It makes you hallucinate so terrible horrors that you are paralyzed by fear. Some lucky individuals just start swimming away from the monsters of their imagination but those that are paralyzed are easy snack for Cystonemats.

    Cystonemats may sound a bit OP but remember that most of them are quite passive and only eat some unlucky individuals that just happen to be there when it is hungry. You could make it so that they found old Luscanemat that was dead. The Exoskeleton/shell would stay after death. If it were alive living in it's mouth would be quite hazardous as it would digest them. If you get better idea use it. i'm just pointing couple things out.

    1. This is not a "My Species vs Your Species" game, it's a collaborative effort to populate a planet.
    2. Being poisonous isn't an end-all weapon, especially against an armoured species like the Boost Roha, they aren't unaffected, but they may not be extremely vulnerable either.
    3. The Boost Roha is a swarm species of small armoured devourers. They overwhelm by numbers.
    4. This does not mean that the Luscanemat or Cystonemats are threatened, it's a biological development.

    Lastly, consider what will lead to the most interesting future developments. Personally, I don't feel the answer is an invincible mass of coral.

    Just got here, but I see this as more that the roha may be able to either burn off the poison quickly due to their thermal attack, or instead because the poison is designed to work on Nuro, Phou and Kafka it doesnt affect the Roha who up to this point had no interest in the coral.

    Also, the coral wouldnt be actively eating the Boost Roha, they would act more like pitcher plants or venus fly traps where they catch something and eat it as it decomposes/digests inside it. So living in the 'mouths' of these coral would not be so far fetched.

    Im rolling with it and making another update for the Boost Roha. Because of their new habit, the eastern Boost Roha begin to develop a means of 'holding their breath' to endure the poisonous bursts from the luscanemats. As such they begin to develop internal lungs that help them breathe and should they ever venture forth from the sea, could maybe survive for a time out of water. This evolution while originating in the Eastern area, eventually filters to all Boost Roha.

    now let's see.
    Here i tried to explain how the Cystonemat normally hunts and a bit info as it seemed like you didn't know everything about them as you didn't say anything about the poison.
    They aren't really OP. I just said that someone might think so as IG already nerfed them a bit.
    after that more info and one example how it could have gone.
    And here i just noted some of the problems and asked if i could have explanation how they would have been overcome. I wanted to know because there is story in it, not because i would think it is impossible.
    And no the poison isn't all high and mighty. It is nasty but all it does is scare you.

    Now let's see how it might have gone. this is just info for you to use and edit as YOU like. Ok the poison does affect the Rohas but there is many of them and only some of them get poisoned because there is no way that the poison would be everywhere. Those that are paralyzed by fear are protected by their brethren so they don't get eaten. Soon they would learn to hit and run as then the leaked poison wouldn't harm them before it would blend into water and become harmless. I'm still between the dead and the near death Luscanemat for nest as if it were alive there would be always the risk of getting eaten. And i still don't see why they would actually start eating the Cystonemats as there are better things to eat than poisonous food.

    Over time, the shells of the various dead Whale Kafka start to become a regular part of the scenery. The various species of plant and coral form over them and the large exoskeletons make for new additions that allow the reefs to expand quickly and create a whole lot more nooks and caves for the various cave species so they can begin to explore more of the reefs and interact with more species.

    I would like to see this relationship become more symbiotic over time. But only in this Eastern region. At the other two reefs, the Luscanemats should stay predatory, but over time, the fact that they are being used as Hives for the Boost Roha actually becomes a boon and they begin to adapt into a variant here that instead feeds on the sick and dying Boost Roha, while acting as a shelter for the others. The Roha's lungs allow them to resist the poison, but dont actually eat anything but the slowly re-growing tentacles.

    Its cool, Im already running with it. The Eastern Luscanemats are evolving to become more of a colony hive for the Eastern Boost Roha (which have adapted to endure the poison until it diffuses in the sea water.) The roha eat the tentacles of the luscanemats to keep them passive, while the luscanemats get to eat the diseased and dead roha, and their shed shells. Also, the Roha act aggressively to protect their new homes which keeps away other predators that would eat them.

    Instead of the luscanemats dying slowly over a period of years, they are cultivated and become more intricate hives to allow for more Roha to live there, thus increasing their food supply as well.

    The change in coloration made it easier for the deep roha to prey on the megamouth Kafka, which has lead to another spurt of evolution. Now, they have adapted some camouflage to help them hide amongst beds of plant life on the ground.

    Because of this evolution, the megamouth Kafka has extraordinary difficulty getting away from the reefs to continue its migration after breeding season, and as such to compensate produces a massive amount of offspring (most of which just become a new rich source of food for the reef) in hopes that enough make it through to continue the species (ala sea turtles)

    Over time this haven of safety for the Eastern Boost Roha has developed another new ritual for the species. Instead of freely breeding as a whole, a small group of old and powerful females gather together at the deepest point of their Luscanemat hive (a part that is actually dead) and fill the entire chamber with unfertilized eggs. Males compete for the privilege to enter the egg chamber and fertilize the eggs. These rights are given to the smartest and most loyal followers, ensuring the hive is well protected for the future.

    Fuck yeah, omnivorous Slivers. Plant life is dooomed. This new diet of theirs should be so successful that they at first start to clear cut the Ojo in the reef. Which forces the ojo to produce faster and grow faster to compensate or go extinct. So Ojo in the central region become Kelp-like with massive tall Ojo becoming the norm.

    Regional Description Update for those that need it.

    Central Region: Kelp Ojo Forest with deep trench running the length of the reef. Luscanemats have moved into this region and established a symbiotic relationship with the Spiny Nuro in the area becoming the dominant coral in the area. Sand Slithers have become bottom dwelling omnivores.
    Walker Roha have a unique variant here that is more heavy and aggressive.

    Eastern Region: The boom of unusual deep sea plankton has finally become the norm in this region. Luscanemats have become massive hives for the Boost Roha who make this reef their home. The organized hives make it difficult for other species to be at the top of the food chain, but this does not seem to stop the Crusher Kafka who enjoys hunting them.

    Western Reef: The poisonous Plankton have created a plethora of unique life in this region. Multicolored varieties of all sorts call this reef their home. Larger predators like the Crusher Kafka have abandoned this reef because they cannot handle the build up of toxins from creatures they ingest. The Western Walkers thrive in this environment and become more numerous without much predation.

    the competition from the extensive ojo forests and thick luscanemat coverage forces the more thermally adept roo corals to seek a new niche in the depths of the trench. they develop stronger calcifications, and begin to form large clusters around wellsprings of superheated water, where the deep planktons are most numerous.

    just below the commotion of the reef the trench roo thrive in solitude, for now.

    The Western Reef Slizer has begun to internalize its former exoskeleton through the development of cartilage, regaining some of its previous control over its fins. The fins themselves have split into a pair of blades, which have proven useful for grabbing hold of prey, as well as shearing off harmful spines and tentacles.

    All this changing of habits for the Eastern Boost Roha has started to create sexual dimorphism within them. Females grow larger and become more dormant. Staying around the hives. While males remain largely unchanged and do most of the hunting and gathering

    Females old tentacles become partially extendable again and they learn to use them in conjunction with their smaller grasper tentacles to improve their fine manipulation of objects. They continue to show more signs of intelligence.

    trench roo corals flourish in the deep and nearly empty waters they call home.

    they now form much larger colonies, centered around superheated upwellings.

    their feeding tendrils have developed fans capable of sifting the water for plankton much more efficiently than before, allowing the polyps to grow much faster and larger than before.

    larval polyps are cast to the mercy of the currents in hopes of finding purchase on a far-flung seafloor vent. this helps diversify the gene pool, and also aids in colonizing yet untapped vents.

    The swimming hoppas are small and amphibious hoppa creatures that live in coastal regions and prefer relatively shallow waters.
    They hunt smaller creatures by piercing them to their harpoon like tongues.
    They spawn floating larvae when they reproduce. The larvae remain airborne for a very short period however. Their gas sacks begin to atrophy very quickly and they start developing the protective thick skin and bone plates almost immediately, causing them to descend to the oceans within days of being born.
    These young hoppas are fast swimmers, and they hunt, eat and grow until they become mature. At that point they return to the coasts and become more amphibious, spending time on land along the other swimming hoppas.
    Like all hoppas, they communicate through bioluminescence (The purple patches at the sides of it's snout aren't eyes. They are the light emitting organs. Their actual eyes are the six purple orbs that are at the sides of the ridge going through their head.) and pheromones.(The greenish organs at their sides are the pheromone glands.)

    The whale hoppas are larger and completely aquatic cousins of the current swimming hoppas. They are filter feeders, using their long hairy tongues to ensnare plankton and algae, and bring it to their mouths.
    They are the biggest hoppa species around.
    They reproduce in pretty much the same way as the swimming hoppas do, except that they never return to land.
    Their pheromone glands have adapted to suit their aquatic environments more, thus their pheromones are extremely potent, so that they wouldn't dissipate as quickly to the water.
    The long tube at their back side is a breathing organ, which they can extend to the surface of the water when they need to breathe.

    Actually, I got something in that description wrong.
    The filtering hairs are in the forward facing tentacles of the whale hoppa, it's tongues have small barbs that allow the creature to grab the food caught in the long hairs of it's tentacles, and bring it to it's mouth.

    Some of the non colonial boost rohas have started preying on the large kafka creatures. They use their strong claws to break open the hard shell of the massive creature, and then they plunge their barbed tentacles and sharp fangs to the meat of the creature and feast on it's flesh.
    They also eat the remora phous that follow the kafkas around.
    The big creatures are hard pressed to fight against these numerous agile critters, and the best way for them to survive is t actually swim away.
    This type of boost rohas are most often encountered in the central reefs, though they do appear everywhere where there are kafkas.

    A freakish mutation grants one flying roha two backwards facing tentacles. This trait quickly proves to be advantageous, as it allows the creature to better stabilize it's flight, and helps it to make more swift and agile maneuvers that help it escape any would be predators trying to snatch the roha from the air.
    This trait quickly spreads to the rest of the flying roha population.

    The Giant Boost Roha and the Deep Roha begin to compete for prey, and as such begin to feed on one another. The massive Deep Roha hunt in small groups which are able to hold their own against the packs of Boost Roha, but soon are forced to rely on hit and run tactics because they cannot endure the numbers the Boost Roha hunt in.

    As such, Deep Roha become less numerous and continue to increase in size becoming the largest creatures around the reef, although now quite rare. Mostly staying towards the Eastern Reef now exclusively

    The interbreeding between the spiny roha and the ripper roha results in many twisted hybrids.

    The spines on the other had became very dominant. They formed organized rows on their shells, that actually helped the creatures stabilize and direct their boosting better.

    The Dire Spined Phou comes equipped with crushing claws that are good for breaking through coral to get at the cave roha as well as any unfortunate shelled creature it can get its claws on. The Spines fend off any large predators allowing the phou to grow to massive size. They also grow a third eye on their tail so they can watch for attacks from behind as well as a maw that can shoot out at lightning speeds to catch curious fish, allowing it to be both an ambush predator and a slow unrelenting scavenger.

    In an effort to kill themselves, the Optical Phou follow some of the hoppers back towards shore. Hoping to beach themselves and suffocate. Instead, they discover they had the ability to breathe air this whole time... Due to the horrible mutations and bright coloration though, the Hoppers avoid eating the creatures but instead use them as bait to lure in other prey. Throwing them in shallow water and letting their forlorn splashing draw in other hungry things they will eat.

    Ocean Hoppers make their way to the Western Reef and find it strangely fine for them. The poisonous plankton for whatever reason do not harm them in the least. They take advantage of the lack of any large predators and make this reef home for the time being.

    Seen-kel Hazu.
    Which means the Desert of the Worms.
    They really believe that the world is mostly made out from the desert, although those Zu-nul who joined the great Thickblood in the sky now know how small their previous idea of the world really was.

    New Mini-Event since Im going to bed.

    During the tidal waves and massive chaos of the past few cycles, a massive storm has brewed. Now, this doesnt mean much to the ocean dwellers, but in the constant surge of wind and weather, a bunch of eggs were scooped up and dropped in a different reef.

    Optional Event- Chose one Local Species of a Reef and deposit/migrate it to another region. The species remains at their home reef, but now attempts to survive in this new environment. Do they prosper or are they all doomed to a short and pointless death?

    Alright, this will be probably my final update for a while, as I have a quest to run. I'd like to know how many of you are still lurking here, so that I know if I should keep bumbing this.

    Anyways, the "hands" of the island hoppas develop further. They can now reliably handle and hold all kinds of objects.
    They have grown slightly more social, often working together when they hunt all kinds of shallow water and land critters.
    They have also learned that the easiest way to get to the meat of the stilt walkers is to bash them to rocks until their shells break.

    Before anyone thinks that I might be trying to make another intelligent hoppa species, fear not. I intend to make these insland hoppas into somewhat intelligent yes, but not tribal. They will be the Nad'lun equivalent of mermaids, that the pirates and sailors tell stories about.

    Also, I have a question for you IG.
    What kind of fauna lives in these islands?
    This is pretty long after the black dawn, and in my recollection the island games didn't go on that long after the event, so the fauna developed in that thread might be outdated.

    The recent storm uncovered lots of dumped chemicals which caused many mutations in the animals of the sea, including the Luscanemats, and the Old Nameless one was not an exception. the effect of potent chemicals started to show when many Luscanemats started to increasingly grow more tendrils. The effects might have not been so strong for the Old nameless but in its neverending hunger it started to eat the containers. This caused it to grow great number of new tendrils and this strong growth also intensified the leaking of Cystonemats poison to the surroundings.
    The madness grows and even now we don't know what the chemicals are doing to it in the future.

    Exposed to a plethora of new chemicals, the Jet Slizer goes through a genetic freakout. Its leg muscles rupture their exoskeleton and form into long, powerful tentacles capable of latching onto prey and tearing off armor plating. The Sliver's digestive system also swells and overflows, pouring out of the Sliver's mouth. These weaker tentacles are caustic due to stomach acids and are used to partially digest prey before dragging it into the rest of the Sliver's stomach.

    Exposure to chemicals and environmental changes accelerates the West Reef Slizer's evolution. It claws grow larger and more powerful, as well as growing a second set. The Slizer's tail splits apart and grows an inward set of spikes, resembling teeth. This secondary mouth allows the Slizer to tear apart and consume prey faster.

    The (Eastern?) Spiny Nuro grows two additional tongues, which become long and prehensile. From the corners of their mouths, they sprout a pair of bony mandibles. Their mouths are not as suitable for life as an herbivore, nor are their digestive tracks meant to handle meat. They end up taking up a lifestyle as an omnivore; Eating what plants they can still manage to bite into, and scavenging small amounts of meat which their mandibles assist in tearing up.

    The Eastern Spiny Roha under the guidance of the Boost Roha has developed a new hunting tactic that creates a significant boost to the food supply of the Colony. Using their vertical orientation, they are able to glide down between the spines of the Dire Spiked Phou and kill it by ramming its long barbed tentacles into its eyes.

    A strange side effect of this is that, because the creature does not die right away, the Roha can somewhat guide the beast into the colony hives upon which the Phou had been munching. Making for easier eating for the whole group
