Survival in the Forum

Mutation uno: Biparental care

Mutation dos: Photoreceptors? (lensed eyes if alraedy present)

1 Like

base organism has basic sensory cells so you probably already have photoreceptors

Does the streamlined body of Cat-Bestiae Tigris also increase it’s flying speed?

It already added speed to land speed, so you’ll have 1 flying speed next round.

Edit: Bontopia13 and ThatGuyJim, where are your mutations?

Edit2: @Bontopia13 and @ThatGuyJim I request you both to submit mutations. If not done, I’ll consider making another species fate vote.

Sorry, my power went out, and so I could not use my laptop. Anyway.

M1: A larger abdomen.

M2: 2 More legs.

I’ve decided to wait for ThatGuyJim until November the 14th, if they don’t respond by then, I will see them as no longer active on the forum and do a species fate vote.
I’ve made a new Forum Game in the meantime, so that people will have more time to post votes on the individual FGs.

sorry, ive been away for ages and couldnt access the forum can i still do my two mutations or have i missed my chance?

You can still submit your 2 mutations.

if i am still in, here are my new mutations

M1: add rear spikes as a defense

M2: flagella

Do you mean hair? You control a creature species, not a cell one, and the environment is land and not water.

oh wait, i ment the weird tenticles used to make cells move, i think i got mixed up

Pseudopods (the thing you most likely meant) are already a part of your creature in form of muscle cells, which function in very simmilar way.

I will change it to faster limb movement

Round 14 - Year 1, Month 2

SUB-EVENT

Prosper Forum has downloaded a large update recenently. While at the first sight not affecting the creatures, it turned out that composition of the atmosphere has changed, being better for the organisms. Their circulatory systems now strenghten them, respiratory systems allows for faster movement, and more oxygenated than ever brains allow for more stealth.

In the meantime, Creature Containment Plan, now known as Creature Park Organization (CPO), with many members of former BCA joining in, made an agreement with FPG and the forum’s moderators, allowing for creation of areas where the forum’s species will be safe to live in. However, a splinter group of FPG radicals, known as Eradication Agreement (EA), stated that it will continue to raid those “Forum Parks” (FPs). CPO’s plan is to create multiple Forum Parks with unique conditions, which will influence evolution of organisms living inside of them. First of those areas, α-FP, has conditions that immitate the ones of earthly deserts, with large spaces between few letters.

CPO also is the first group in the forum to develop a timeline of creatures’ evolution, with MAL (Months After Limagriseus) being the primary time unit. Period of time 1 to 3 MAL is known as the Early Era, the period of time from 4 to 9 MAL is known as the Intermediate Era, and the time period from 10 MAL on, including the present day, is known as Pax Multipoda

How will the species adapt to all this stuff?

@fralegend015 - Fabuloid Pseudo, “Hothebelifabustilal” - HO

  • Small Omnivore

Mutations: Better Respiratory System (+1 Speed), Limbs Location Change (+1 Speed), Intermediate Brain (+1 Stealth)

F. Hothebelifabustilal is the descendant of M. Mutator. It has developed more complex brain, helping it survive in the forum’s environment, aswell as the necesarry respiratory system to supply it with oxygen equivalent. It’s limbs now rest on the side of it’s body and have more muscles attatched to it, giving the organism more speed. The creature looks a lot like a creature from the Extinct Fabula genus, and so it has been renamed to such name.

@willow - Dichorisare Amplicoma, “Wall Slug” - HO

  • Small Herbivore

Mutations: Higher Muscle Heat (+1 Strenght), Acid Gland + Mazes (+1 Stealth)

D. Amplicoma generates more heat when it’s muscles are moving, allowing it to go further down posts without freezing to death. It also produces acid, which is able to melt soil in lower levels of a post, allowing for the creation of mazes in which those creatures hide. However they still need to go to the surface in order to eat, meaning that they are at risk of predation from both other creatures and users…

A lot of changes this round!

Circulatory System and it’s upgrades give +1 Strenght, Respiratory System and it’s upgrades give +1 Speed to walking speed and flying speed, if a creature can fly. Brains or other neural structures and their upgrades give +1 to Stealth.

Habitats are now present, and their amount will expand, atleast as long as a creature doesn’t develop concerning features. They are empty of creature for now, but perhaps soon someone will migrate to the first new biome?

FPs (Forum Parks) don’t allow species to evolve at faster rate (meaning that all species will evolve in them at rate of 2 M/R, unless they exist both in the Wilderness and a FP), while the Wilderness allows species to evolve at faster rate due to pressure from users.

FPs don’t have User Hunting Pressure, but they do still suffer from event penealties.

Expect the first general cladogram to appear soon, along with the symbols of various organizations.

How much is going to be the next hunting pressure?

It will be 9, 2 higher than the previous one (it has UHP of 7)

Mutation 1: Cybercognition, utilizes the cyberspace for sensing the position of anything that is around a certain radius from the species’ individuals utilizing it, this bypasses obstacles like the soil or letters.

Mutation 2: Autokinesis, the species’ individuals utilize the cyberspace to apply a vectorial force upon themselves, allowing them to go faster.

M1: acid resistant egg cells that are large enough that it’s a disadvantage to carry them so they’re just dropped off in a pool of acid(also external fertilization because they’re dropped off as soon as they are able to be fertilized and removes need to protect eggs on the surface)
M2: 12 legs that can be used for speed on ground but not hard walls(not enough surface area for the setae to work right) or to dig up and carry letters to the nests and partially bury them in the walls
