Radiostrocity

There’s a system to control that
Looks at the Miscellaneous section in the latest round.

no, like the actual organism doesn’t have any control over itself

It doesn’t know that yet

Round 7 - 18:00, April 26th, 2000

Round Prologue
After killing it’s first human, TO has returned to it’s normal habits, seemingly preparing to do greater things in the future. As the dusk sets the sun, people outside start to worry about the lost tourist…

The Organism

TO increase it’s size once more, growing to be two-and-a-half metres long now (Size up to 256 cms, -64 R). It has also developed a new caste, which is able to photosyntesize (+16 S). It’s rate of egg production has also increased (+20 S). Amidst the large increase of it’s brain size, the ant has developed empathy, feeling sad for killing the human (+24 MH). It’s also a lot better at healing now (R to H ration changed to 1:2, I’ll just double the effect here instead of asking for extra mutation). TO is now also somewhat better at regenerating energy (16 R can be turned into 44 E).

TO has burried the human corpse into the ground, biting off a few chunks of it in the process (+24 R). It has then regenerated some Health (16 R → 32 H). After that, it ate the rest of the human corpse (+36 R). Then it started commanding the ants to attack the nearby area, however it was attacked by a bird and suffered an injury (- 16 H). TO then used some of the remaining bones from the human corpse to reinforce the colony, which now can support even more ant-children (+16 S).
Feeling sad for the lost human life and how it ate the corpse, TO procedded to self-harm itself a little, causing minor Health Decrease (-1.5 H). It then rested and regenerated more Health and Energy (8 R → 16 H, 8 R → 20 E)

(+52 S, +24 MH, - 36 R, +30.5 H, +20 E)

SIZE-RELATED CHANGES (will take effect from Round 8):

  • Things such as mutations/action costs, statistic gains due to mutations/actions, energy consumed per round, health loss due to roll of 1, resource gathering multiplier and resources turning into other statistics have been multiplied by 16 64 (so for instance, a resource-gathering action with a roll of 3 or 4 will now gather 20 80 R (16 64 R + 4 16 R from the former +0.25 R per R-gathering action) and cost 8 32 E.)
  • 64 resources can now be turned into 128 energy, 192 R can be turned into 256 E, 576 R to 512 E etc., and 64 R can be turned into 128 H (here it is 1:2).

Statistics
HEALTH - 52.5/328 → 210/1312
STRENGTH - 376 → 1504
RESOURCES - 60/192 (-64 R from mutations, turned 16 R into 44 E) → 240/768
ENERGY - 16/240 → 64/960

Informal:

SIZE - ~256 cm (4 cm x 64/2^6)
KILLS - 1 PERSON

HUMAN POPULATION ~ 6099999999
COUNTRY POPULATION ~ 5100000

HUMAN AWARENESS LEVEL - “You killed a person and people started to notice that they’re missing…”

Miscellaneous
I’ll remind you that there exists a system that allows you to make a vote against a player whose Mutation/Actions goes against your own Mutation/Action.

Some additional rules and stuff:
-If size of the organism increases, so will the organism statistics, aswell as their effects (so if you double your size, the organism has double in height statistics, and it consumes double energy/round passively).
-Actions such as converting resources into energy, or turning resources into health, don’t cost energy. However, if you don’t have resources nor energy, you can draw your health bar (meaning that it’ll have a lower cap) in order to regenerate energy just like resources.

uh oh, this is like plague inc

now we gotta destroy the entire earth before people notice

mutation: include brain neurons in excreted evolving tissue cells
action: inject the dead human with evolving tissue via the ET glands in the mandibles, after taking a few bites out of it.

time for our first zombie!

also, belgium, y’all made an ant depressed enough to start intentionally causing itself pain.

Mutation: Create pockets within the carapace to allow for TO’s children to nest within it.

Action: Begin a mass hunt in the surrounding area.

you mean as if inside the Reserva or going outside of it?

Inside the Reserva, as in surrounding the colony

should we form groups that mainly deal with specific parts?

also, this reserva is a real place. You can make plans for the surrounding area if you want.
Edit: @Evolution4Weak , @fralegend015 , @Centarian , @Nigel , @Computed please submit your votes.

lets just all mutate size for the funni.
gotta destroy the planet before people notice!

The cost for becoming larger increases relatively after you become larger. If you just keep growing in size over and over again, you’ll just starve to death since all resources were spent on growing.
