The Breath of Life || REBOOT
The Breath of Life makes its fantastical return, as promised! Below are the rules and background, just so you can familiarise yourself.
Now seeing as this is a reboot, things will start off differently. This won’t have new players, instead, it will be a direct continuation of the old forum game. Old players will still have their positions. The waiting list will be the same. However, there will be a few changes. The new round will be up in a little while, so stay tuned!
After several million years of stagnation, life begins an new era of experimentation:
This has resulted in a diverse collection of creatures and organisms, paving the way to more complex and specialised life. The world is fresh and unexplored, fit for evolution. One of the most advanced creatures in this new world is Gremus Physcel, a tiny proto-worm that will be give birth to the future of Jorus. It is roughly 0.3 mm in length, and is extremely primitive by our standards. It is a see-through greyish creature, with a small mouth for scooping up clouds of microbes. This mouth leads to a digestive tube running down the length of the body, ending in a very simple anus. It lives in and around the equator of the planet. It reproduces sexually. It has incredibly basic cardiovascular and nervous system. It has no eyes, no limbs, and no back bone. Perfect for any type of creature you want.
Get ready, the race for superiority has begun!
If you have played any forum evolution game before, the rules are pretty much the same. If you are unsure about anything, please feel free to ask.
For those of you who haven’t played forum games before, the rules are as follows:
- You may have at most 2 mutation votes per turn, and may skip your turn if necessary. If you choose 1 vote, 2 dice rolls will be performed, and the average will be used. if you choose 2 votes, 1 dice roll will be performed for each. If you choose 0 votes, nothing will happen. This is if you have reached an equilibrium, and fear that any changes will upset your creature’s success.
- You cannot use any existing or previous species names.
- Your vote cannot be too abrupt/unrealistic (eg. 10x size, wings)
- In the first 3 rounds, should you stuff up your species, you will be able to be revived once to give players another chance. Only the first 3 rounds though.
All dice rolls are done with the use of an online randomiser. Do not worry, they are unbiased. If you get any of these numbers, your species will mutate accordingly.
Absolute disaster. Not only has your creature failed in mutating the way you wanted, but it actually drastically evolved in the opposite way.
Unfortunate genes. Your creature has failed at this mutation, and may evolve opposite.
Could have done better. Your creature has partially evolved towards your goal, if at all.
Not too bad actually. Your creature has mutated pretty well, and your species is looking good.
Great. Your creature has successfully mutated the way you wanted.
Fantastic! Your creature has super evolved through pure chance, and your chances of survival are looking better than ever!
Example of vote
Name: Stupidus Animalus
Vote 1: Simple Photosensitive chemicals
Vote 2: Enlarged Tail
Events are things like disasters or continental shifts etc.
They happen with no pattern, but all players will get 2 rounds notice.
One last thing…
Remember, this is only a game, so don’t get mad if you lose.
After all, you can always branch off someone else’s species to continue playing!
Now, go fourth and conquer! Again!
