Evolving Creatures part 1
It was evening.
I came home from work early just like yesterday. Of course, as yesterday’s debt accumulated a lot of work, I only had proper rest, went to work early again, didn’t even eat lunch and continued working. That’s how I finally made the time.
Having done this, I’m probably very obsessed with the app without realizing it.
However, I was somewhat suspicious of this application.
I even asked Miyagawa about “Guide to Creating Another World”, even though the results were disappointing, it was very rare to find a game title that even this guy didn’t know.
Of course, I don’t think there’s anything suspicious about the gameplay itself.
Even so, if you do a search on the internet, you will not find any official site or strategy site. There isn’t even information about the game name.
That will certainly make people feel suspicious.
But as of now, I hadn’t had any trouble with it except that the battery drained significantly when I opened the app. That was all.
I stopped to think about it, even though I knew it was suspicious, because there was no inconvenience, it was useless to worry about it any more. I don’t care as long as it’s fun.
“Now, let’s take a look at the planet. Oh, a primodial dragon has just given birth to a baby…. What is it…..? The race is a highly ancient dragon?”
In the morning, a primodial dragon that evolved by giving mana to the multicellular organism 1α gave birth to a child, and a different species, a high-level ancient dragon was born.
I’d like to know what the creature is capable of, but unfortunately, this unfriendly game app doesn’t have such an appraisal function. It doesn’t have any abilities on board.
However, once a new creature was born, it seems to have a rough explanation in the [Life Evolution] list to see the ecology of the creature.
Here was what it said in the description.
A higher life form that has existed since the ancient times when life forms were born in the distant past.
The primodial dragons, which evolved directly by the power of the creator god, have a small amount of divinity in them.
[Highly Ancient Dragon]
They are said to be the closest to primodial dragon, and are the ancestors of dragons that have lost their divinity and degenerated.
Although they are not as strong as the primodial dragons, they have an overwhelming rank compared to many other creatures.
It seemed that this was the case.
According to the description of the primordial dragon, “which evolved directly by the power of the creator god”, I guess the power referred to one of the mysterious functions in this game, [Mana].
In this case, one could guess that I as a player was the creator god, and what the power said was Mana.
“I see, the primordial dragon is a creature that has small amount of divine power called mana within them, and it’s the strongest at the moment. And although it has lost its divine power and deteriorated, it is still overwhelming in comparison to other creatures by a huge margin. Is it refer to Highly Ancient Dragon?”
It seemed that the scheme of 【Primodial Dragon > Highly Ancient Dragon】 was valid.
Well, as long as it’s a living organism, each individual has its own role, and the weight of its strength also changes. Ugh, but unfortunately I can’t confirm that.
I didn’t know if the appraisal feature was implemented in this game, but if it was, I’d like to see it as soon as possible.
But it was strange to see it this way.
By nature, organisms evolve by changing their forms as they adapt to their environment. I’ve heard that dragons, in particular, become stronger the further back they go in the past.
This was age of the strongest of the weak, it was a mystery to me whether there were benefits of deliberately weaker evolution were. But this was what we call the fantasy style.
By the way, the World Tree, which is the final evolutionary form of plants, does not seem to be changing into new plants at present.
Did this mean that this creature was complete?
I’ll check the logs, but it seemed that they didn’t produce any offspring at the moment.
”But the final evolution huh…….. Even the pinnacle of the overwhelmingly powerful ecosystem, the primodial dragon, is not mentioned in the log as the final evolution. There is none. It’s only a higher level and not the final. The descendants are weaker and weaker in terms of the dragon’s ecosystem, so if the primodial dragon isn’t final, what is final? I wonder….”
And as I was looking at my phone with that in mind, the primodial dragons that were scattered all over the planet were suddenly they are beginning to gather on the continent.
The highly ancient dragons were also gathering one after another, and what the hell was going on?
The continent where they gathered on was lined with precipitous mountains that were as sharp as needles, and they were surrounded by. And the numerous of dragons swam in the sky as if to cover them.
They swirl around a lone primodial dragon as their base point, gathering their strength as if in some kind of ritual. It felt like I was there.
Suddenly, the primodial dragon in the center began to shine, and with a ‘beep’ sound, the message displayed.
[The Primordial Dragon Chief is about to make his final evolution! Do you want to give him mana?]
No, what was “Primordial Dragon Chief” mean?
Seriously, this central primodial dragon was a chief?
I didn’t think these guys had that kind of civilization.
I mean, it was so sudden, the final evolution.
Well, but of course I’ll give him mana.
And then, when I decided to let it evolve without a second thought, the primodial dragon, which was already dazzling, shone even more brightly.
“Whoa, what the hell? It’s getting smaller and smaller!”
As if in in inverse proportion to the strong glow, the chief became smaller and smaller, and gradually began to take the shape of a man.
When the light completely subsided, a handsome, naked man with magnificent horns was sitting there.
No, why a human?
Could it be that on this planet, the ancestors of humans were dragons?
No, no, no……..
[Congratulations! The primodial dragon has finally evolved and has been reborn as a Dragon God! Event completed! New features released]
I hurriedly checked the new function and found that an item called 【Oracle】 had been added there…….
It looks like I cleared the event before I even knew it was happening.
Evolving Creatures part 2
The functions of the [Oracle] were intriguing, but for now, I was going to focus on the final evolution that I’d been curious about from earlier.
The [Life Evolution] still contained new information.
He is a dragon god and a sub-god who has received strong blessings from the god of creation.
He has the strongest power as an individual among all living creatures.
Hmmm, he seemed to be a god on this planet.
He wasn’t a real god, but he was still a god of this planet. As long as he was described as a sub-god, he must be able to use his special powers.
Since I haven’t found any records of humans up to now, I thought he might be the ancestor of the humans on this planet. But it didn’t seem right.
Let’s just look forward to the future.
Next, let’s look into the oracle.
You can send a message to a creature with strong mana blessings.
“…What, that’s it? Or rather, what is the message?
If you look closely, the oracle column had a notepad-like feature.
So you want me to use this to control my phone’s keyboard and send a message?
Could this game have an AI or something?
No, even if it was an AI, what should I do with it?
For now, I was going to write the oracle and send a message to test things out.
“Well……… Well………for now, it’s ‘Hello, can you hear me?’ …………………………………………………………………………………………..Send!”
When I sent the oracle, or rather the message to the dragon god, the dragon god on the screen shook with a jolt.
He looked around.
“Oh, there are a reaction. But it’s a terribly realistic reaction, interesting. I’m curious about your reaction, and let’s play with it some more.”
I got carried away and tried to send a text message, “Please take care of the world from now on” and “One day, I want to create a human being! They were probably quite weak compared to dragons, so don’t just wipe them out” and so on.
Each time I did, the dragon god nodded yes, and with a serious face he told the dragons around him what was going on.
After all, this was a game, and I didn’t think even a little bit of what I was saying was getting through, but it was still interesting that they were responding.
The production company that thought of this feature was very good at what they do.
The actions of the Dragon God and his followers, who were told about the oracle, were also good, and everyone was listening to the oracle.
With that, the assembly of the dragons ended without incident, and they returned to their respective dwellings.
It looked like the festival was about to dismiss.
Well, for now, it seemed we’d cleared the event, so let’s skip it again.
Even if you look at this primal world, it’s just the same thing over and over again, so I skip it without hesitation.
[Start skipping, please wait a moment. ─ ─ 10 minutes left until the next event]
“Ten minutes. This time it’s short.”
There’s not much time left until the next event, so I wasn’t going to take a bath, but instead I was going to make a cup of noodles. Do the meal first.
I boiled water to make the cup noodles while watching my smartphone, and beyond imagination, various creatures had been born since the birth of the Dragon God.
Since the skip was quite fast, you can only grasp the situation by following the log, but in short, first the life from the sea ascends to land. It gradually became mammals and even gave birth to ape-like primitive human.
Finally, the birth of mankind was imminent.
In to this, there were also huge sea creatures, insects, and dragons, the distant descendants of highly ancient dragons. There were even various creatures such as wyvern-like that seemed even more degraded.
Finally, a fantasy world was beginning to take shape.
And just as I finished my cup of noodles, the skip ended and the message I’d been waiting for appeared.
[The ape are about to branch out and evolve into the human race! Do you want to give them mana?]
The humans had finally born!
My expectations were high since it took a whole day!
Tomorrow was Saturday, so as long as I didn’t suddenly had to work on a holiday, I can play all day long, and my creative juices were flowing! To an unmistakable degree.
When I checked the [Life Evolution] section with enthusiasm, I found that the various familiar fantasy races were arrayed.
Standard human-type life forms.
Less influenced by mana and less powerful, but due to their weakness, they are most superior in fertility and wisdom.
A human-type life form with a high affinity for plants.
High mana influence among the human race, but their powers are much weaker than those of the human type.
Their reproductive power is low.
A human type of life form with animal-like characteristics.
They are even less influenced by mana than the human race.
However, their strength is stronger than that of the human type, and their fertility is high.
A human-type life form with a high affinity for minerals.
Mana influences are standard among human types, and their strength is strong.
Fertility is standard.
In addition to that all kinds of races become created at once, and there is a wide variety of them.
In order for them to be born, they need the environment and mana that corresponds to their race, but fortunately, this world has a variety of natural environments and its resources of mana are abundant.
Or rather, for some reason, since the Dragon God was born, new mana has been manufactured continuously, and although it’s only a small amount, the resources of [Mana] It’s increasing.
The stock of mana was enough to create an entire human species and it didn’t hurt or itch.
Since the final evolutionary forms were recorded as having a very strong Mana, so perhaps, because of the birth of the World Tree and the Dragon God, the creation of Mana was there was progress on it. And that in turn led to evolution.
I was curious as to what final form of humanity exists.
While I was looking forward to the creation of future planet, I have also decided to create all the human species that I see before me.
