NEW ERA

This post marks the beginning of a new era!

We are now in the Permian era. As stated in the beginning of the game, history wont be the same as we know it. In this case, the roll of the dice determined that a beneficial event of extra-terrestrial origin has taken place. The Earth has flown into a cloud of hydrogen dust. This has thickened the atmosphere and caused an influx of water to the planet.

The world is warm with an average temperature of 70 degrees. The climates are mild and winter is rarely below 40 degrees in the areas that have them. Within this mild climate are pockets of tropical regions and areas of vast grass lands. The flora has evolved rapidly in this warm world rich with water. Grasses emerge, primitive shrubs develop, and trees grow massive with thick canopies. The world is no longer ruled by spongy moss and tough ferns. The huge variety of climates and vegetation has been a benefit to all life on Earth.

Animals you can expect to see this round besides your own are the following:

Scutosaurus:
A heavy lumbering beast that is difficult to hunt due to sheer size and thick hide. Thankfully it is an herbivore, albeit, an ill tempered one. They travel in medium sized family units. 10 feet long and 800 pounds.

Inostrancevia:
This primitive hunter is swift, agile and deadly. It's massive teeth and huge jaws allow it to hunt a wide variety of creatures. Even young scutosaurus fall victim to this beast. This is not a creature to trifle with. 6 feet long and 300 pounds; this is the apex predator for this Era.

Eryops:
An old enemy to many of the creatures living on Earth. They rule the water ways and eat anything that fits in their mouth. 8 feet long and 300 pounds. This creature can easily drag small to medium sized animals into the water to drown.

Dimetrodon:
10 feet long and 400 pounds; Dimetrodon is a fearsome predator. This being said, it is sluggish and requires a significant amount of time to warm itself up each day. It is a threat to those that are slow enough to be caught or foolish enough to be ambushed.

Dvinia:
A miniscule reptile that closely resembles a mammal. These tiny mouse like lizards live in burrows and feast on a wide variety of small insects, reptiles and plants. An easy meal for those quick enough to catch it.

Vivaxosaurus:
Vivaxosaurus is a medium sized herbivore with small tusks and a beak. Their stubby limbs don't allow them to move quickly and they can be an easy kill for larger predators. They live in large groups and rely on numbers for safety.

Various small to medium sized fish, lizards, amphibians and insects.

Good Luck Everyone!

Wow those pictures are great!!!

- males subconsciously increase or decrease libido depending on the amount of food and vs the amount of their own species, basically self-regulate population growth.
- tail develops sharp blade-like spines along the end, which can be swung around to injure predators.

Develop hair (even if it is extremely tiny).

On the digits with only two phalangeal bones, develop a sharp, four inch claw.

Despite thinking that this game is straining my sense of disbelief too far, I'm still going to vote.

Develop misled at the base of our earscales, this should give us mobile ears able to pivot on sounds.

Both females and males develop a crop.(for storing food for youngsters)

Great round, I love the pictures!

However, something is bothering me...

What did those large animals evolve from, given that they should have had to compete with us to get that big? We ought to be seeing offshoots of our own species instead, as the animals from Earth's normal timeline wouldn't have had a chance.

New votes:
-Diaphragm
-Digitigrade stance.

In response to all your questions, hydrocodone.....hydrocodone is what happened. I'm sorry for everything being sub-par but, I'm honestly not myself now and haven't been for a few weeks which in reality is more like a year and a half. I plan to implement created species in the next era but, for now I'm trying to do my best with what is already difficult at this time.

- Starting living more in caves than underground

- Facial expressions which can be understood due to the advanced brain (fear, love, pain, suffering, anger, frustration, joy)

P.S.: Jesus Christ the drawings are wonderful

I can accept that answer; it's good just to have you with us.
