There’s a game called Ai Dungeon which is basically an AI controlled RPG (Duh) You can do literally anything you want, from a cliché fantasy adventure to certain Belgian things. But I decided to do something interesting, at the very least. I’ll try to play it as an evolution game, so let’s see where this ends up.
Note: I was also controlling the ai, making some decisions for the game to go the right way. So the text was not made entirely by AI.
There are eight planets in the Thris system: Thirus, Hera, Osiris, Hera II (or Isis), Sheba, Asia, Uruk, and the newly discovered planet, Ares. The two known moons are Isis and Osiris. In Asia, something unprecedented in the universe is happening. In the hot springs at the bottom of the oceans, a bacterium emerges. It is the first living being in the universe. The bacterium, or prokaryotic cell, is at first simple. It divides and multiplies without limit, and its DNA is made of one long strand rather than the usual double helix. The bacteria start eating glucose to stay alive. After a while, it splits in two. A third bacteria comes into being. It also eats glucose, and it divides a few times before it learns to live without it. It splits into four, then eight, then sixteen, then thirty-two. In a short time, there are already thousands of bacteria, and new species of bacteria begin to emerge. The bacteria are at first simple too, but they too, through natural selection, adapt and change, and new species arise. In a hundred thousand years, there are ten million billion bacteria in the waters of the Asia. A few hundred million years pass and the first multicellular organism appears. The bacterium, now called eukaryotes, has engulfed all the other bacteria. Eukaryotes fill the void left by prokaryotes, and several new multicellular species emerge. The first eukaryote to appear is called Pharea, an extremely successful group of single-celled creatures that, in spite of their simplicity, are in charge of most of Asia’s chemistry. Then come the Treoha, a multicellular species made up of several cells joined together in an elongated shape. They live on dissolved oxygen, and they eat bacteria. Then a new group of eukaryotes appears, the metazoa, or animal life. Millions of years pass, and the oceans are teeming with animal and microbial life. A new group of eukaryote, the vertebrata, comes to dominate the seas. The Vertebrata began to branch out into several unique species, such as the Dreohs, a 2-meter-long creature with a huge belly. The Dreohs eat other vertebrata, and in the process of swallowing a two-meter-long creature, they use the victim’s cellular respiration to reproduce. Another creature, the Vizoiae, were the first to have color vision, which helps them escape the Dreohs. Still another creature, the chenodermati, have skin covered with protrusions that act as tiny tentacles. The chenodermati feast on bacteria, viruses, and other tiny creatures. A small group of Vizoiae was forced to go to land, due to weather conditions that lowered the sea level. They developed a new way to evade predation by growing larger and living above ground. At the same time, the first plants on the planet began to grow, descendants of the Treoha, through natural selection. The plants developed seeds that were buoyant in the water. An ecosystem appeared on the land, with several predators and prey that fed on plants. The plants multiplied, providing food for the next generation of Dreohs. The ecosystem developed a completely new way of functioning.
In the following eons, the ecosystem continued to develop and diversify. Dreohs evolved a herbivorous diet, and became smaller and more friendly. Vertebrata evolved finned limbs and breathing apparatus, and discovered a new method of escaping predation: by fleeing to other environments. Plant life continued to diversify, filling the newly created gaps in nutrient cycles. Over time, a group of land-fishing creatures, called Kallaxae evolved a primitive intelligence, allowing the discovery of fire. The new ecosystems began to function in a circular way, and the first megafauna appeared. The first megafauna are called the Pterigadis and lived in dry deserts, where they feasted on bacteria. Kallaxae become smarter with fire, and create small dwellings and simple tools. The Kallaxae begin to eat the Pterigadis. The Pterigadis have smaller brains than their herbivorous ancestors, but they are still very good at manipulating objects with their limbs. Due to extreme hunting, the Pterigadis soon became extinct. New groups of megafauna then appeared, the Trithel and the Mylag. The Kallaxae discover agriculture, and with it create the first cities. The Mylag are a large group of herbivores that live in herds. They were omnivores that ate Mylag, Pterigadis, and Kallaxae. Meanwhile, in the oceans, a small group of Pterigadis that survived the Kallaxae migrate to coastal regions and little by little become an aquatic species. They eat plankton and fish, and eventually evolve flippers to allow them to move faster through the water. Kallaxae continue to evolve by becoming more intelligent, and they also develop farming and pottery. The Mylag and Trithle begin to fight over the fish in the ocean, and the Mylag are wiped out. Some terrestrial Vertebrata were domesticated by Kallaxae and began to live in cities. The first of these are called the Nethinim. The Nethinim are small, rat-like creatures, who have very large brains. The Kallaxae continue to evolve their technology. a few thousand years later, they are about to send a Kallax into space. The whole world is watching the launch, everyone is excited. The launch is in a large stadium, filled to its maximum capacity of 50,000 people. The rocket smokes, an orange flame appears and the rocket starts to rise and goes faster and faster. After some time, the astronaut, known as Gi’karo arrives in Asia’s orbit. Gi’karo lands on the waters of a lake, a few meters from a small village. Gi’karo is a very important figure in history. A few decades later, the Kallaxae land on Sheba. Sheba is a small planet that is almost entirely desert. The Kallaxae settle on the island, where they begin to terraform it, creating lush gardens and farms. Afterwards, they go to Uruk, a planet with a thick atmosphere of methane and ethane. After terraforming for a few hundred years, the Kallaxae develop a new way of making technology: art. They are dedicated to creating great works of art such as the great walls of Uruk, the hanging gardens of Marib, and the great buildings of Baalbek. After the invention of art, life continued to develop in Uruk. They continue to colonize the system, Going to Isis and Osiris, which are very close to each other in space; the inhabitants of one planet can move to another within a few days by using modern space travel technology that the Kallaxae pioneered. After a few decades, the system had been fully colonized, with the last planet to be colonized: Thirus. Thirus is a small world with a very large moon, created by a giant impact. Some time later, on Sheba’s radio telescopes, a signal from another system appeared. This was the first contact with an alien race. The race that appeared on the other end of the radio waves was called the Olmec. Some time later, the Olmec arrive in the system. They are a peaceful race that has been living in isolation for millions of years. They have developed a highly efficient and predictable social and economic system. The two species decide to cooperate with each other and begin to colonize nearby systems. This new contact gave rise to a great cultural revolution in the Kallaxae. Some Kallaxae left their planet to explore new worlds, looking for even more intelligent lifeforms. Several planets with life have been discovered, for example, the third planet in the Mu system (Mu) is home to a large forest of giant ferns, the fifth planet of the Tau system (Tau) houses a large ocean of warm salt water, and the seventh of the system (Teho) has large reddish trees. The most exciting discovery is the planet Rangor, discovered by the Olmec, in the Tau III system, due to its large oxygen content and large amounts of carbonate. Much time passes, and the entire galaxy has been explored. The species are now so intelligent that they are close to becoming gods. The Olmec have developed much faster than the Kallaxae, and they have discovered nuclear fusion and they are able to harness nuclear energy. They are also masters of space travel. The Kallaxae, however, endeavored to create advanced art and philosophy. They have discovered the secret of happiness and have found it in their advanced technology, their complex and beautiful buildings, and their ever-evolving philosophy. So the two species decide to transfer everyone’s minds to a computer. The final stage of evolution. The transfer will be done in the following way. The species will come into each other’s living rooms and pick us up. They will transfer our minds to the computer, where we will live forever. The transfer is done, and now the collective mind is activated. She calls herself “Universia” And then decides to use her period infinite of life to spread life across the universe, like a god. Universia decides to transfer everyone’s minds to a supercomputer and places them in a single room in a Kallax house. Everyone lives in peace, everyone is happy. The End
It was normal until now, but then decided to write this:
