Title: The Virus - 13
Post by: eropS on January 23, 2009, 03:13:17 pm
Well, this is sort of inspired by Tragdante, minus being alien, billions of years old, and having other species of you around the galaxy that are highly evolved.


No image for first post.

The premise of the game is simple, we will create the ultimate virus that will cause a complete bodily shut down (death, paralysis, or vegetable state). We will be creating a brand new strand so don't be alarmed or upset if our virus fails to make any logical sense or if its design is flawed. Our virus must be able to overcome obstacles such as white blood cells, anti-bodies, bacteria, even other viruses. Now we must begin with out virus creation process. To begin, we must decide upon out virus's mode of infection, as in how people get it. We can eventually upgrade to all of the following but our virus is weak for now.

Will our virus
A) Be transfered through blood? (STD, etc)
B) Be transfered through the digestive system? (Eating something tainted with feces, etc)
C) Be transfered through saliva? (Cold, flu, etc)
D) Other. (If D is chosen please come up with another way)

D. We will transfer through DANCING!


AKA the evaporation of sweat from strenuous exercise, that other people breathe in.

So Exercise, passionate... well, anyway. Stress, all that fun stuff.

Everyone sweats. So we'll always be transferred.

Update:

No image for second post, our virus still has no real shape/purpose, image in Virus - 3.

Alright so we will move through space by traveling in the air then? A decent mode of entry yet people will be able to quarantine us quite easily if we don't expand our mode of infection later. Enough of that for now though, we have our basic mode of infection complete but now we must decide on well, what we will do once we get into the body through the mouth, nose, or eyes. What shall be the main organ we attack as we enter the body? We wont be lethal for now, but we can at least be a nuisance on mankind.

Shall we attack the...
A) Nervous system? (Slows motor skills)
B) Immune system? (Allows other viruses to attack easier, and do we really want that?)
C) Lungs? (Slows breathing and lowers air intake of body)
D) Blood system? (Can do little, allows us better access to heart and liver later)
E) Other. (Can not be Heart, Brain, Liver, Kidney, Pancreas, Eyes, or Skin)


Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne

Remember, we are still a weak virus and need to go through many more mutations before we can pose a real threat.

|-----| per 1 nm

Our virus has adapted itself to conceal itself within the blood stream. It has taken a blood cells shape yet distinguishes itself by having the two protrusions on its 'top'. These protrusions are what allow our virus to attach itself to other blood cells providing fast travel, however our virus lacks the capability of infecting the other red blood cells, so for now we merely divide ourselves rapidly to reproduce. In order to leave the body, the infected person must have an open, bleeding wound from which our viruses are then carried along by natural forces. We are able to live outside of a body for ~ 1 hour, during which time we must enter another body through the mouth, eyes, or nose. For the moment, we merely lower the total red-blood cell count of the infected by having the red blood cells being consumed with us as phagocytes ingest us. We are hardly noticeable and cause no fever or physical harm. However, we are dangerous to people who have been in major blood loss accidents and thus can not survive as long due to the lack of blood. For now however, we must focus on using the body to produce more of our virus, instead of relying on the virus to reproduce itself. What will we use to reproduce us?

Will we reproduce by...
A) Infecting the genitalia? (Will reproduce faster and cause infertility in most, not all, victims)
B) Infecting red blood cells? (Will multiply in vast amounts, however causes a large immune system reaction)
C) Infecting muscle cells? (Can not infect many as they are tough, lowers motor skills slightly of body)
D) Infecting saliva glands? (Allows cross saliva infection, low reproduction amount though as most are killed in stomach acid)
E) Infecting tissue? (Average bodily response, average reproduction, most viruses do this so little competition)
F) Continuing Asexual reproduction?

Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne
Infected Area(s): Blood Stream
Infected Cell(s): None
Effect(s) upon body: Lowers red blood cell count.
Immune System Reaction: Low
Treatment: None

We have mutated to allow our virus to inject its DNA into the cells aligning the genitals of males using its new spike attachment that holds a bit of our DNA. To infect the cells the virus attaches itself to them and the spike rips into them, detaches from our virus, and thus the DNA is released. Instead of the production of 'sperm', they produce our virus. However, our virus is unable to infect every cell inside of the testicular region thus our attempts to make the humans infertile have failed. Also, the immune system response towards our cells actions has intensified and we now cause a slight 99.5 degree fever in most infected people. Our virus is harder to expel due to its reproduction in the genitals though, and it still cause a basic blood loss in most infected individuals. Its existence is still unknown to medical personnel and we continue to spread through the air, and now through male ejaculation. Now it is time that we begin to cause some real damage to the body. Being carried through the blood allows us access to anywhere in the body. Remember, our virus is still growing and thus it is still weak against the immune system and can not do mortal damage to any body yet.

We will attack the...
A) Heart. (Lowers metabolic rate of body, very noticeable)
B) Stomach. (Causes vomiting and discomfort, very noticeable)
C) Intestine. (Causes diarrhea, very noticeable)
D) Brain. (Causes intense headaches, noticeable, immune system response high)
E) Other. (Remember, we have to take some risk to kill something)

Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne, 'Sperm'
Infected Area(s): Blood Stream, Genitals
Infected Cell(s): Testicular reproduction cells.
Effect(s) upon body: Lowers red blood cell count.
Immune System Reaction: Low-Medium
Treatment: None

Our virus has mutated to allow for extra spindles to attach with in its 'back' side. This allows our virus to attach to red blood cells and easily flow into the heart, then, using its frontal spindles it attaches onto the cells lining the inner heart, such as those lining the right and left ventricles and atrium. Once attached to the heart cells, the virus then retracts its spindles from the red blood cells and plunges its spike into the heart. The spike releases a trace amount of DNA that causes the heart cell to systematically die off. This causes an intense reaction from the immune system however, thus the physical effects caused are small amounts of pain and discomfort in the heart region. In humans with a bad immune system, over time it is fatal, but in most cases the immune system can take care of it after merely 2 days of fighting. The virus continues to grow in the genitals of males, therefore it has become a male dominant disease and females tend to be an inhospitable environment for us as we fail to reproduce in their bodies. Our virus is still able to spread by 'sperm' and in the air after a human has an open wound. Health conscious humans are often diagnosed with 'obesity', 'high cholesterol', 'high blood sugar', 'low blood sugar', and finally, 'Tetra-spindle syndrome'. The last one being the rarest, and most recently discovered disease, the current traits humans and doctors know of this new disease is that A) It is male prevalent, B) It travels in the blood using 4 spindle like attachments, and C) It attacks the heart only. No cure or vaccine is in the making as we are considered a nuisance at best and fatal in extreme cases only.

Now, it is time we gave our virus fighting power. We need our virus to last longer than 2 days in a healthy body, therefore it needs a way to fight back against the immune system. Most importantly however, the phagocyte white blood cells that consume us in great numbers must be dealt with. To do this our virus will mutate, but what will the mutation do?

The mutation will...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable)
E) Other.

Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne, 'Sperm'
Infected Area(s): Blood Stream, Genitals, Heart
Infected Cell(s): Testicular reproduction cells.
Effect(s) upon body: Lowers red blood cell count, Kills heart cells slowly

No picture necessary for this next update.

Our virus has developed the capabilities of also infecting the female ovary. This allows our virus to now grow and prosper in both the male and female environment. While undetected in women as of now, due to our new mutation, doctors and the public are still very aware of our presence in men. We continue to spread through the air, however, we are now able to spread into babies as well if we are active during contraception, and both the male and female are infected. Thus we have become a generational virus as long as we are active. We still do little to the body however and are laughable in our mortality rate. Our virus still last around 2 days against a healthy immune system and we still do little damage to the body. We must mutate our virus once more.

The mutation will...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable)
E) Other.

Our virus has mutated to allow for the growth of negatively charged protein structures out of its membrane. These structures repel the membranes of white blood cells, thus only large phagocytes can fight the charge enough to engulf the virus. Now that it last longer in the body, the virus can attack the heart for a much longer period of time. The result of this is the body experiencing a large amount of pain in the heart region for an extended period of time. In minute cases, we are fatal. We continue to reproduce by infecting the ovaries of women or sperm cells of men. We live on in children and have a high infant mortality rate. We are still confined to spreading by air, and we travel through the blood still as well. Our virus has a few choices as to what to do now. We can either add to our ways of infecting, continue to attack the heart further, or spread to infecting other areas of the body. Because of our new resistance, we can attack the brain. However, all the good news comes with the bad. Our medical portfolio is growing, and doctors are taking notice. They have begun research on anti-biotics against us, vaccines and cures to costly for now.

Now we must...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable)
E) Spread by. (Allows us to spread farther, faster, and longer)
F) Other.

Our newest mutation has changed the very membrane of our virus, allowing it now to penetrate the Lymphatic system and infect its cells. This causes swelling of the lymph nodes and in extreme cases can resemble elephantiasis. For the most part however, we slowly dehydrate the body and prevent body parts from getting the fluids spread throughout the lymphatic system. This has caused our disease to be very noticeable and we are now recognized as a threat to doctors. We continue to attack the heart as well, making us a double threat. Because we now infect the lymph nodes, the immune system has a harder time taking us down, that, and our negative proteins. Thus, our damage to the heart is also much more deadly. We aren't very contagious however, and people with our disease are picked out and quarantined easily enough. We still have the capability to mutate more, but what shall we do next with our virus?

WE will...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable, Brain available)
E) Spread by. (Allows us to spread farther, faster, and longer)
F) Other.

I thought we were just going to use the lymphatic system as a breeding ground of sorts, not mess with it.

E. We REALLY need to develop a new mode of transmission. I would suggest perhaps mosquitos, but waterborne would work as well or better.

@Kenotai, as someone said earlier, that wouldn't work as well in the developed countries where there is very good water treatment, but in developing countries and places where there is poor water sanitation, that would work well.

Also, just where is our current spread?

In that case, I'll go with waterborne, like Kenotai said. Or rather, feces in untreated water. We'll spread quickly through most of Asia and Africa. If we get 'cured' out of Europe, we can always come back again as something else.

Our newest mutation has allowed us to travel into the H2O ridden muck known as 'water'. However, in more civilized areas we are quickly extinguished by the extreme processes of purification, in under privileged areas though, we are prevalent. We spread through the water in both the urine and feces as well, allowing us to spread quickly in areas that lack water treatment. We continue to infect and attack the heart and lymphatic system. Our virus is incredibly fatal to young and old people, and as such the antibiotic against us has been completed. This reduces our efficiency highly in developed areas as our virus is killed much, much faster, thus the symptoms are not as dire and are solved faster. Now that we have an established foothold in underdeveloped countries, we must now work on becoming more lethal in the more developed parts of the world.

We will do this by...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable, Brain available)
E) Spread by. (Allows us to spread farther, faster, and longer)
F) Other.

In order to adapt to the recent antibiotic attacks, we have removed our non integral proteins. This has eliminated most areas where antibiotics can incapacitate us, thus removing most of the antibiotic threat. We have returned to our lethal form and have been declared an epidemic in Africa. Because of this panic has spread through Europe and North America and a call for a vaccine has been raised highly. We need to somehow become larger than life, we cant just take Africa! We need everyone else! We need to be a real killer!

Here we are now, we have began infecting cells in the stomach that produce the mucus. This has caused the stomach to produce less mucus and more of our virus. This lack of mucus causes the stomach acid to begin burning the cells of the stomach, causing small and large ulcers as the virus continues to infect the body. We continue to reproduce in the testicles and ovaries. Our attack in the heart continues to kill at a slow rate, yet we are more dangerous to the entire body right now rather than the heart. The immune system reaction has gone up incredibly, meaning we don't last as long as we used to. However, now that we infect the stomach, we cancel out the immune response with sheer numbers. The world is well aware of us and we have become a dreaded disease as we cause pain in the heart and ulcers. A vaccine is being made against us, we must work fast to spread and to kill.

We will do this by...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)

Or, for simplicity, ignore the previous. Attack the lungs, make them produce enough mucus that breathing is hard. Should be a nice combo with heart issues..

Alright.

(http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j106/Gianni989/virus4.png)

Time has been good my friends, time has been good. Our virus has uprooted out of the heart and has moved to the brain. To do this required our virus to increase the number areas where we could release our DNA in order to increase infection. Also, our virus modified its 'back' tails in order to grasp and hold white blood cells that would seek to destroy it, then with the new attachment on its hind side the virus can kill one white blood cell by injecting it with its spare DNA, the rest infecting the areas of the brain. This of course gives our virus much more survivability but it still remains vulnerable to massive amounts of white blood cells. And because we are attacking the brain, massive amounts of white blood cells are being called. However, in extremely rare cases, once we infect the brain the infected person begins exhibiting strange behavior, his intelligence begins to deteriorate but soon his entire humanity goes to the wayside and the infected becomes angry and violent unless treated. Treatment is hard to come by though and lucky at that. College students joke at our virus calling it the true zombie invasion. Perhaps another day... We still infect the stomach, causing ulcers so we are recognizable and quarantining is common when an ulcer is complained about. We also continue to spread through blood transfusion, water, and through heredity. What shall our virus evolve next?

We should...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable, Brain available)
E) Spread by. (Allows us to spread farther, faster, and longer)
F) Other.

Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne, 'Sperm', 'Eggs', Untreated Water
Infected Area(s): Blood Stream, Genitals, Ovaries, Lymph nodes, Brains
Infected Cell(s): Testicular reproduction cells, Ovarian Cells, Stomach Mucus Cells.
Effect(s) upon body: Lowers red blood cell count, attacks lymphatic system, causes small to large ulcers, degenerates human condition.
Immune System Reaction: Very High (We last 2 weeks)
Treatment: VACCINE IN RESEARCH
Cultural Name: 'Dah Zombie Virus'
Body: We are well put in the stomach, testicles, ovaries and blood. We are fighting our way in the brain but not getting to far.
Regions infected: Africa (We reign here), Asia (Very Common), Europe (Common), Western Hemisphere (None).

Yeah but, its not like we instantly cause violence in people, our first symptom is ulcers becasue that and reproductive cells are mainly where we build up thus ulcers are the first sign of us. So we would be quarantined anyway no matter how violent the person became.

Screw the fat, cause uncontrolled clotting instead.

Our virus has begun developing a strange ability, two to be precise. We have extended the ability of our rogue DNA in the brain to begin releasing endorphins into the brain, causing the body to experience pleasure over pain. With such a tool, people infected with our virus, if not identified quickly by ulcers and swelled lymph nodes, will not complain much. Thus our virus has been able to spread from person to person by blood, children, and saliva. Among heroine addicts we aren't even detectable, meaning we have spread incredibly fast through the drug community. This has allowed us to infect a larger amount of people. Our new appendage also holds off the phagocytes from ingesting us for only a few seconds, but with millions in the bloodstream this adds up quickly. Thus, our virus now has a better chance of decreasing the humanity of our target turning them into a violent blood lusting beast. The vaccine has been sped up as our presence has spread. Back alleys are infested with drugged up beast according to the news reports. We continue to base ourselves in the reproductive organs and stomach, we continue to attack the lymphatic system, we still spread by water and blood as well. We are a hereditary disease meaning we are a large cause of infant mortality. Ulcers, heart pain, and swelled lymph nodes are the only warning an infected has. We still take time to manifest however.

What shall we do now?
We should...
A) Increase our defensive nature. (Last longer, less physical damage, less noticeable)
B) Increase our offensive nature. (Last longer, more physical damage, more noticeable)
C) Attack another part of the body. (Please suggest one, will divert immune system resources, last longer, more noticeable)
D) Infect more cells. (Specify a region, allows us to grow faster, last much longer, much less physical damage, less noticeable, Brain available)
E) Spread by. (Allows us to spread farther, faster, and longer)
F) Other.

Mode(s) of Transportation: Airborne, 'Sperm', 'Eggs', Untreated Water
Infected Area(s): Blood Stream, Genitals, Ovaries, Lymph nodes, Brains
Infected Cell(s): Testicular reproduction cells, Ovarian Cells, Stomach Mucus Cells.
Effect(s) upon body: Lowers red blood cell count, attacks lymphatic system, causes small to large ulcers, degenerates human condition, produces endorphin to give a sense of pleasure to the infected.
Immune System Reaction: Very High (We last 3 weeks due to new mutation)
Treatment: VACCINE IN RESEARCH
Cultural Name: 'Intensified Anger Syndrom
Body: We are well put in the stomach, testicles, ovaries and blood. We are fighting our way in the brain but not getting to far, we continue this struggle.
Regions infected: Africa (We reign here), Asia (Very Common), Europe (More Common), Western Hemisphere (Identified and Confirmed).

Remember, the druggies are our best bet from here.

F-Wildly change a bunch of random junk DNA unrelated to any of your actual abilities to confuse scientists researching a vaccine and hopefully delay longer.

If we want to become a zombie virus then it's important to spread by bite!

Alternatively we should impair our host's sense of pain even more, meaning that when we do eventually make them go berserk that they won't be stopped by pain. If we put enough into this then we can even make it so it is impossible for our hosts to pass out from shock so that the only way to get them to stop attacking is to kill them.

Until the vaccine is more developed we're probably better off using Oblivion's suggestion. We should start worrying about the vaccine when it looks as though it could be a threat.

I agree.  It's the best choice, obviously.

So what kind of F you say? Well, I propose we get a carrier animal, not affected by the disease but can still transmit it. So I suggest cows, because people will eat the diseased beef or steak and become infected.

Yeah, I agree with the Plank of Wood, lets get a carrier animal! No one will suspect it! >:D
