Turn Four
Reproductive Revolution

Team Octotank
Votes-
Sense of Touch, 4+2=6
Trisexual Reproduction, 4+2=6

Changes: The Diverse Tubes have evolved a complicated form of sexual reproduction that makes use of a male, female and host, or ocmale. The female provides the eggs, which are fertilised by the male, and carried by the ocmale. This complex method of reproduction has forced the organism to refine its sense of touch to identify the gender of a given member of the species. They can also discern between food and non-food by its texture now. The ocmales are much larger than the males and females, but also much rarer. They only donate their genes to a few eggs, in such a way that overwrites some of the male and females genetics. The males and females are relatively similar, but the males have distinctive ridges to discern themselves. This change has also given rise to basic social behavior. Small herds form, made up of males and females clustered around an ocmale, which can hold incubate many eggs at once. Once eggs hatch the newborns are expected to leave and find, or form their own herd.
Diverse Tube- Inpolypus Trimorph

Description: A Tube shaped organism that attaches to the sea floor and faces into the current to catch and eat random organic debris from dead algae and the like. Its body is supported by a hydrostatic skeleton that acts as a primitive open circulatory system. It has three tentacles on either end it uses to grab onto the ground and swim. They have an incredibly sensitive touch and can discern food from non food by its texture. It has a central nervous system and basic intelligence. It has a trisexual reproductive system, that makes use of females to donate eggs, males with distinctive ridges to fertilise them and ocmales to carry the eggs to birth. They form herds, made of multiple females and males centered around an ocmale.
   


Team Any
Votes-
Sexual Reproduction, 5+2>6
Nervous System, 5+2>6

Changes: The Squid-faced Fish has away from budding and now lay eggs and build simple nests. They gather up not food items and then glue them together with a sticky excretion from their mouth-tentacles. This glue keeps the nest together and the eggs from being pulled away by the current and eaten by Tubes. They are currently hermaphroditic, with all members of species able to produce eggs and fertilise them externally.
Nestbuilding has created a pressure on the Spitters for greater intelligence for the sake of nestbuilding and identifying other members of the species. This has resulted in the evolution of a central nervous system and some basic cognition.

Squid-Faced Fish- Signipolypus Capitosipisces

Description: A fish-like organism with a small flagella-like tail it uses like a primitive rudder. Its mouth is surrounded by tentacles it uses to grab food and buil nests. These tentacles can secrete a sticky glue used to build nests and anchor eggs. Using its chemoreceptors, it spits out non food debris. Its digestive system works as a makeshift circulatory system delivering nutrients throughout the organism. It has a central nervous system giving it a basic intelligence.

Votes-
Diagonal Portrusions, Auto 6

Changes: The Star Slime has further optimised its form, now growing into a star shape that has increased its surface area. Its population however has begun to stagnate, as they cover every surface available. The Star Slime is able to cover over its ancestors, but ultimately, it can harvest no more energy, unless it becomes more efficient, finds a new energy source or colonises a new body of water or land.

Star Slime- Mobilialga Stellamorph

Description: A green slimy mass that can be found in the shallows of the Munr Sea. They grow in vast star shaped colonies It is covered in small blackspots that it uses to detect light and move towards brighter areas. They photosynthesise for energy. They grow and divide rapidly.




Events are going to start next turn.

Team Octotank:
Vote: Develop an adaptive immune system based on bacteriophages within the Tube body.

For our sex vote I do suggest on getting more senses or finding more efficient food sources with adaptions toward that possible goal. But I'm willing to support anything with better sex vote if the team need it.
Edit: I will be suggesting for our sex vote to be developing two tentacles that will be having optical cells that might hopefully develop into eyestalks one day.

+1 on sex vote for respiratory system

Also +1 for the exoskeleton
I'm gonna put the last thing I copied here. Will change each time I visit for variety
