SBD's RPG
« on: March 13, 2006, 01:50:10 am »
everyone knows how these work, so im not gonna explain. i should just tell you that daily updates may not be possible, but they will happen once a week, at the absolute least.

The home planet of our creature is one not unlike our own, but somewhat colder. It is temperate (or mediteranean) around the equator, with a European-esque climate around the tropics, with tundra after that. our story begins somewhere around the equator, in some coastal tide pools. our cell clusters have been minding their own business for a few thousand years, until a very big, but rather clumsy cell comes along and distrupts the ecosystem. we are far to small to try and fight the agressors, so we must run away. but how?

A: develop small hair 'propellers', good directional movement but poor speed
B: develop a tail, good speed but poor directional movement
C: develop a snail-like system to hide under rocks
D: develop a thougher more flexible membrane, we will move like a jellyfish

One thing, put more time and thus words in the story/description ;).

But it's ok.

I chose A, because the bigger cell is rather clumsy, so the cell is better off to be good at something the bigger cell isn't good at. There isn't info on how fast he is compared to the smaller cell, so good directional movement control is more handy I think. It also allows from better catching food with more accuracy.

A wins.

our cell clusters can now easily out monuvour(sp) the predator cell clusters. but the predator's over eating, and the newly eqiuped hairs mean that absorbing smaller cells clusters or single cells no longer provide the sustanance for survival. it is obvious that a better means of eating is needed, or even a new food source.

A:develop more complex system of eating (eats plankton and organic debris)
B:develop better senses (basic sense of feeling)
C:develop photosynthesis
D:**can't think of anything else. votes for D will be ignored :P**

i have a feeling that photosynthesis is a evolutionary dead-end, so i'll go with A, the runner-up.

after several generations, the clusters develop a reletively simple digestive system. they now had a small 'mouth', with which they could filter plankton and eat small amounts of decaying biological matter, of both plants and animals. with this extra food, the clusters grew enormously, and developed the eating system even further, as well as growing small organs and a basic brain, but are still effectivley blind to their surroundings. however, the old system of propolsion no longer creates enough thrust to move, so now it is little more then a fury covering.

A: develop small legs on the back of the creature
B: develop fins and a fish-like tail
C: develop an eel-like tail
D: tentacles!

How is that a dead end? That is a way of eating, a new way to survive. And i voted for C:develop an eel-like tail


Ditto. What is wrong with photosynthesis?  ???

the problem is, is that once you start to photosynthesise, you have all the requirments for life- food and water. this means that you dont need adaptations to hunt etc, such as eyes, teeth and a complex system of organs, which in turn require a brain. i apologise to the people who voted, it wont happen again (unless it under extreme circumstances)

Eh...introduction of unfortunate circumstances, simple, it isn't the only thing that is developing.

D wins

our clusters grow 2 pairs of tentacles: one on either side of the body and two underneath. both pairs are in line with each other and are about a third of their body length away from their mouth. they are now able to propell themselves at a significant speed, away from agressors and towards food sources. they have a basic underdstanding of thier surroundings, but this needs to improve, as predators are becoming more complex. either this, or we need a defensive system.

A/B:improve senses
C/D: develop defensive system

once one of these wins, i'll post again with your options.

A/B wins.

over the next few generations, our creature came under threat from more intelligent predators. running in the opposite direction of them is no longer adequate as they now hunt in pairs. this meant that we would run away from one, right into the jaws of another. So we developed new, better ways of pervieving the world around us. this came in the form of:

A:Spider-like eyes- good depth perception and peripheral vision but generaly poor sight(can't see very far)
B:a pair of eyes-good depth perception and range, but average peripheral vision
C:improved hearing
D:echo-location
