Competition - Charbiss

Another one! Yay!
Rules are these:
Four teams are made, with a only two people on each team. Total amount of players will be eight.


Simply put, each person can suggest one trait the current organism will evolve next turn; the suggestions are tallied, then a dice is rolled for each of them to see if you managed to mutate your way through generations:
1 - Result is exactly opposed to the one intended ! :o
2 - Evolution goes in a somewhat opposite way to the one intended.
3 - The trait is barely or badly evolved, producing no concrete result -but no penalty either.
4 - Notable evolution toward suggested goal. It's not perfect, but it's more or less what you wanted.
5 - Major evolution toward suggested goal; the desired result is neatly obtained.
6 - Evolution goes beyond the suggested goal, making the creature somewhat specialized in this new trait.
Moreover, the more people agree, the easier it is: you gain +1 to your dice roll for each 20% of voices going to the same suggestion (though 6 is still the maximum).
If you know that you will not be present within the next update, then PM me and your team can vote for you.

Each team will have a conservation status given to them each turn. This will reflect the success of each organism.
Extinct (EX) – No known individuals remaining.
Critically endangered (CR) – Extremely high risk of extinction in the near future.
Endangered (EN) – High risk of extinction.
Vulnerable (VU) – Bad risk of endangerment in the future.
Near threatened (NT) – Likely to become endangered in the near future.
Least concern (LC) – Lowest risk. Does not qualify for a higher risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category. :P

Additionally, if you're bold, there are a few ways to unlock more votes inside a team:
- adaptations dealing with gene transfers give one single additional mutation for the team per turn, but without the bonus system. Do you feel lucky ?
- two persons of different teams can agree to grant each other a voice in their own team, as part of an “exchange pact”. Do you trust each other with this power ?

Note: If a team member is not present for two turns in a row, they have to give up their position on their team. The first person to volunteer will take their spot.

One other thing: Every third turn I will roll for an event. I will decide if it's good or bad.

Environment Description
Firiope is a K3 (orange dwarf) star that has a surface temperature of 4426.85C.
The planets orbiting Firiope are in this order: Targyde, Charbiss, Droetis, and finally the gas giant Orbyl.

Charbiss has density of about 5.9 g/cm3 and a mass of 1.8 earths. It's surface gravity is about 0.45 Gs compared to Earth. Charbiss has a diameter of 25480km. It has a very stable orbit, almost in a perfect circle around Firiope. There is almost no variation in its axis. A day lasts 42 hours and years last for 272 days.

Planetary Composition (excluding atmosphere, water and molten core):
32% Sulfur
23% Silicon
18% Iron
10% Titanium
7% Carbon
3% Uranium
1.8% Lead
1.2% Aluminium
1% Potassium
3% Other trace elements

Charbiss is the second planet that orbits around the star Firiope.The surface of planet Charbiss is a barren wasteland, exposed to high amounts of radiation due to having a extremely thin atmosphere. Almost all of Charbiss' Oxygen and Hydrogen is used to form the water within its caverns.
Deep underneath the surface however, an enormous network of interconnecting caverns exist. These caverns vary from the size of a large city, to tiny little tunnels that only a mole could fit through. The caverns are almost entirely filled with water. The water has a gradient in temperature, being around 80C at the bottom and 30C at the top due to the high amount of geothermal vents that scatter the underwater caverns floor. Charbiss has currents that are caused by convection, the hot water rises to the top, then as it cools is forced back down again to start the cycle again.


Thermal Lichen (Matridrias Prima)

Appearance:
Small multicellular carbon-based life forms that grow into small 'flakes' around the geothermal vents. Each flake is around 1 - 2mm.
Notable Features:
Reproduces using singe-celled spores that float through the caverns and find new vents to grow around.
Diet:
Producer (Thermosynthesis). Uses heat to produce energy.
Habitat:
The geothermal depths of the caverns.
Conservation Status:
VU

I'll make team Red Pandas, become larger.

Also a note: I want to play an evolution game on that gas giant Orbyl.

20 characters and I are now combining to make a team: Metamorphic Magic. My vote is now: Become larger, but like a worm.
