Re: The Meek Shall Inherit Kobira Turn 1

Post by Ewery1 » Fri Oct 16, 2015 2:03 pm

TURN 1
On the planet Kobira, an ocean extends out in every direction for ages, with barren desert land on the surface. This planet has finally reached a state of homeostasis, where there are no more internal struggles, and the climate is relatively stable. The atmosphere is mostly carbon and nitrogen. The planet essentially resembles early Earth fairly identically. A hotspot volcanic chain is somewhere in the middle of the ocean, having just left its last island, its staring to build up a volcano. However, live settles in for the very first time around this molten hotspot at the bottom of the ocean. It has formed as Kobiran Bacteria and its ancestors.

Team Non Standard (20 characters!, averious)
Sulfur Lithotrophy: base 4+2 (50% support) = 6
Iron Lithotrophy: base 3+2 (50% support) = 5

Lithotrophic Bacteria (Neovive lithovore)
Single celled primitive bacteria that feed off of random particles spurting out of the vents. They have a unique organelle that uses primarily sulfur oxidization and also makes use of iron oxidization to make glucose. However, they lack mitochondria, and so use anaerobic respiration to produce ATP. This is enough to sustain their small size, but if they were to grow any larger they would need mitochondria. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA. They feed off of the iron and sulfur streaming out of the hotspot.

Appearance:
Minuscule bacteria floating aimlessly through the water.
Environment:
Above a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
NT

Team Potatoes 4 the Win v.3 (GabrielGG, geckoguy42, Alpha)
Chloroplasts: base 1+1 (33% support) = 2
Flotation Vacuole: base 4+1 (33% support) = 5
Mitochondria: base 6+1 (33% support) = 7 (6)

Depth Bacteria (Neovive photophobos benevore)
Single celled primitive bacteria that feed off of random particles spurting out of the vents, using the natural heat to make their chemical reactions for them. Light makes it harder for these bacteria’s proteins to function. This is a tradeoff, because it makes them better at processing molecules further into the dark. In order to do this, they have developed ‘flotation’ vacuoles that fill with water and make them less buoyant, hence their name.
In addition to this, depth bacteria have developed mitochondria, only useful when they are near a Microscopic Oozer’s acid to get strands of organic molecules to make ATP; they are better at this than the other subspecies. Normally soon after that they die however. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA, only coding for their phosopholipid bilayer, RNA, and more DNA.

Appearance:
Minuscule bacteria floating aimlessly through the water.
Environment:
Above a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
EN

Team I will not be Sentient (ClassyAmeoba, Jules2800, joshthehawk)
Chloroplasts: base 1+1 (33% support) = 2
Flotation Vacuole: base 4+1 (33% support) = 5
Mitochondria: base 3+1 (33% support) = 4

Depth Bacteria (Neovive photophobos malvore)
Single celled primitive bacteria that feed off of random particles spurting out of the vents, using the natural heat to make their chemical reactions for them. Light makes it harder for these bacteria’s proteins to function. This is a tradeoff, because it makes them better at processing molecules further into the dark. In order to do this, they have developed ‘flotation’ vacuoles that fill with water and make them less buoyant, hence their name.
In addition to this, depth bacteria have developed basic mitochondria, only useful when they are near a Microscopic Oozer’s acid to get strands of organic molecules to make ATP; they less good at this than the other subspecies. Normally soon after that they die however. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA, only coding for their phosopholipid bilayer, RNA, and more DNA.

Appearance:
Minuscule bacteria floating aimlessly through the water.
Environment:
Above a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
EN

Team Morpholotl (Grockstar124, Prudentia, Alexcat989, Yasahiro)
Stronger Cell Membranes: base 1+1 (25% support) = 2
Protein Working Range Increase: base 5+1 (25% support) = 6
Motile Cilia: base 6+1 (25% support) = 7 (6)
Mitochondria: base 1+1 (25% support) = 2

Edge Bacteria (Villosusmotus parvus)
Single celled primitive bacteria that feed off of random particles spurting out of the vents, using the natural heat to make their chemical reactions for them. They cannot process many organic compounds, making a huge decline in their population. However, their protein working range has increase, and they have gained cilia, which allow them to move further away from the vent. This helps their species because it makes it so that the acid from Microscopic Oozers doesn’t reach them. Because of being further away, their cell membrane is weakened, popping with too much movement. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA, only coding for their weak phosopholipid bilayer, RNA, and more DNA.

Appearance:
Minuscule ciliated bacteria moving slowly through the water.
Environment:
The edges of a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
CR

Team Unnamed (DehEvil, Silly Otter)
Mitochondria: base 2+2 (50% support) = 4
Phagocytosis: base 6+2 (50% support) = 8 (6)

Swallowing Bacteria (Heterophagus neovive)
Single celled primitive bacteria that feed off of random particles spurting out of the vents, and sometimes other cells. Swallowing Bacteria achieve this by performing phagocytosis, taking the needed nutrients into their body. They then make use of said nutrients with mitochondria, a common trend among ancestors of Kobiran Bacteria. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA, only coding for their phosopholipid bilayer, RNA, and more DNA.

Appearance:
Minuscule bacteria floating aimlessly through the water.
Environment:
Above a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
NT


Team NPC (NPC Bob, NPC Joe, NPC Jill, NPC Hagitha)
Mitochondria: base 3+2 (50% support) = 5
Cell Wall: base 5+1 (25% support) = 6
Toxic Acid: base 6+1 (25% support) = 7 (6)

Microscopic Oozer (Occulant minimus)
Single celled bacteria that secrete a haze of acid that breaks down the surrounding cells. They have gained a thick cell wall, which makes them immune to their own acid for the most part, eating away at only the outside shell, not the membrane. The organic compounds from the surrounding cells break down into organic compounds that are then processed by their mitochondria. They reproduce asexually, have a semi-nucleus that houses very short DNA.
Generally there are large groups of them form in a cleared out area, the inner ones starving and dying, the outer ones get food and start their own group, before being the inner ones that die, and on to infinity.

Appearance:
Groups of shelled bacteria floating aimlessly through the water, with a cloud of acid around them.
Environment:
Above a volcanic hotspot in the middle of the ocean.
Conservation Status:
VU

EVENT
On the ‘new’ planet, life hangs in the balance over the bubbling lava flowing out of the hotspot. Over time, the hotspot has formed a small hill at the bottom of the ocean, raising the bacteria into warmer, less pressured water with more light. This affects to two subspecies of Neovive photophobos, or Depth Bacteria, the most due to their aversion to light. The bacteria continue floating in their convection current, with pools of acid from the Oozers killing everything around them. Overall, the ecosystem remains calm and unaffected, bacteria lazily floating up and down and up and down.

Revised Conservation Statuses:
Lithotrophic Bacteria: NT
Depth Bacteria: CR
Edge Bacteria: CR
Swallowing Bacteria: NT

NPC Data:
Microscopic Oozer: VU
Kobiran Bacteria: EN
Overview
The dice gods hate you guys so much. My NPC team got some really great rolls, I’m really curious to see where this game goes, I can’t predict in any way, it’s pretty cool. With five teams (including the NPCs) we are sure to have a bunch of really vibrant ecosystems. Also, especially for this game, I really recommend reading everyone’s summaries, they’ll be pretty important. I’m going to try to keep them to a minimum.

Due date for votes is the 19th (Monday) at 2:30pmEST.

Okay team, shit hit the fan. I think we could do a mega support(Or just 2 votes, 66%) for Chloroplasts(again) ;-; Or try other path, even i wanting to be a plant('cause we have none)

- Light tolerance
Should we try again for chloroplasts?

With Chloroplats we already get light tolerance, no?
