Your name is (Whatever your name is), and some way or another, you've discovered the egg of a digital creature! If you choose to accept it, it'll become your duty to raise the little creature within, attend to its needs, and raise it into a prime adult specimen. And eventually, you'll be able to take it to the GRAND TOURNAMENT, and pit it against the champions that other Anons have raised. But be warned! Taking care of a virtual pet is a bit of a time commitment. Treat it well, and it'll grow up just fine. But neglect it too much, and it may evolve sloppy, or even die of starvation or disease.

Heya. Welcome to Virtual Pet Quest. This is a quest based on the process of raising a Tamagotchi, Digimon, or some other kind of virtual pet. Rather than raising one communal creature, I'll open it up to only a small group, and you can get your own personalised creature. I can't take too many players, because I'll be making sprites, events, evolutions, and all that, so maybe the most I could do is 8 players. Basically, once the egg hatches, you guys will be able to interact with your little creature, feed it, keep it healthy, etc. Over time, it'll need food or cleaning, and I'll post in the thread with such updates.

>Rules & How it works:
-Use a secure Tripcode (Name##Password) to mark yourself as the owner of your pet.

-I'm in GMT +8 time zone, so active hours will be relative to a waking day in that time zone. Relevant since you'll need to report in to clean and feed your creature. Leaving it unattended for 9 hours after the post will count as a care mistake for the creature, which will have negative effects. So you might get screwed over just because of time zones and sleep.

-Your pet will eventually develop a sort of personality, depending on your treatment of it. It'll evolve further, go on adventures and be able to battle others through a dice system that I'm still working out.

-I'm still working out the system as I go, so I'm sorry if things get sloppy or take a while.

>How to begin:
Get the egg sprite. Use the 32x32 resolution version, and draw on it. Your etchings will determine the appearance of your starting creature. Furthermore, choose a single word (Like 'Fire', 'Dragon', 'Plant', 'Astronaut', 'Boxer') to add on to the description. Please don't draw on the big version, upscale the 32x32 after to make it easier to see. And don't choose a word that's too weird to make something reasonable. I'm gonna be working hard on making passable sprites and pixel art, so I don't want to have to come up with something for a creature whose prompt is 'anus' or something.

I'll then provide your creature, and you can change your name to fit it or something. The creatures will get a random type: Vaccine, Virus, or Data, which are strong against each other in left-to-right order.

Bleh, super unclear. I meant to say, zoom in and do the drawings on the 32x32 version before upscaling it, so that any drawings or additions can fit 1:1 on the egg.

Helmsbuck has hatched! This Data type digital creature forms armour from trace metal data in the environment. They coat their little bodies with it, and have a bad habit of overestimating their own durability. They have justice-filled hearts, and aspire to fight evil. Unfortunately, they're Data types, and not well-suited to slaying Virus-type digiforms.

And as with all newborns, Helmsbuck is Hungry and requires immediate feeding! Just check in with an acknowledgement to feed it.

Hope you enjoy your little friend. I'll finish the Guitar one before coming up with activities.

This egg has musical data and waveforms within it. However, a mistake has been made in the formation of its egg. Such a process is the most common way of Viral creatures forming. In this case, the uploading of the image as a .jpg has corrupted the incubating creature.

Strumling has hatched! Fortunately, despite being a Viral type and having an incompatible egg format, the theme was coherent and clear enough to bring it back into solidity.

These Viral creatures thrash about by riversides, making loud noises that scare away prospective predators. They wear their emotions on their sleeve, and the waveform atop their head is constantly fluctuating with their mood.

Strumling is Hungry! Same deal, lemme know what he'll be fed regularly.

Out of the egg hatches Strathawk! This species favours cliffs. They're very poor fliers, and strive to take to the skies once they grow up. Their bladed wings are shaped like an aerofoil. These excitable creatures grab anything they find and use them to bomb prey. Sometimes, they even end up snatching eggs from nests and dropping them by accident.

As usual, the baby is Hungry.

Due to the disruption of the Digital lifeform's birth-term, the less obvious definition of it has been chosen, rather than the affinity with Wind that might have spawned prior.

It results in Clocktick! This creature has a hole in its abdomen, that a brass key fits into. It has to constantly turn this key to remain in motion, and if it loses it, it flies into a panic.

As a Vaccine-type entity, it consumes Viral data and keeps Data organisms safe. The feelers on its head slowly rotate along with the turning of its key, and when it makes a complete round, it marks that it's ready to evolve.

You know the drill, check in to feed the baby. It's hungry.

While Virus types (such as Strumling) tend to be wild and aggressive, Doracle is calm and composed. One could almost call it noble. It's said that when its fringe falls over its eye, it can see several minutes into the future, and read the destiny of those around it. It can keep calm in a battle, since it's able to predict when it's about to win. On the other hand, however, it flies into a panic if it sees that it's going to lose, and gets sloppy in its blind attempt to fix it.

Speaking of which, the hungry creature reads the future and sees that it's going to be fed. Right? Right?

The little fella is appreciative of the headpat. Watch the horn when petting, though! Chicken seems like just the thing for a meat-eater. It seems like the food has gone right through it, though. Soon enough, it makes a mess!

>>4981528
A diet of grass seems decent enough for a herbivorous creature. As the oldest creature, Helmsbuck is starting to exercise on its own, and is leaping around the ranch. While punching and kicking, it ends up smashing a bush. The creature looks guilty after the accidental feat of strength.

>>4981582
The Strathawk snaps up the digital lemmings. It seems like the live food provides it constant enrichment. However, it develops the rather concerning habit of playing with its meals, and disembowelling them before eating. What will you do regarding this?
>Encourage
>Reprimand
>Nothing
>Other (Write-In)

>>4981611
Perfect! The little fella slurps up the digital fish, breaking them apart into unstable fragments. However, its waste from earlier >>4981635 hasn't been cleaned up after a short period. It's still well within an acceptable range to leave it be, and it won't count as neglect for a while longer. However, that time has been enough for the creature to start... playing with it. It's making a huge mess, mucking up the water and smearing it across the ground. Letting this continue might spark a behavioural issue, but being too harsh in scolding it might send a bad message as well. It's up to you to find a middle ground.
>Reprimand
>Nothing
>Encourage (Why would you-)
>Other (Write-In)

>>4981637
At first, the aggressive Strumling is hesitant to eat pasta. It ends up enjoying the taste, though! As a naturally harsh creature, this diet might help temper its aggression.

And speaking of aggression, it's currently blaring its chords and vocalizing in the water. This is natural behaviour, but is a bit of a bother to the other creatures and owners.
>Attempt to curb it
>Nothing
>Encourage its singing.
>Other (Write-In)

>>4981690
Clockwork components are integrated directly into it, allowing it to repair wear and tear from within. After eating, however, it leaves piles of scrap rust around, that are jagged, hazardous, and crackling with trace viral data.

Clocktick and Doracle have Pooped and require cleaning.

Clean up that poop before...

>>4981737
..whoops, too late. I give it a gentle scolding for playing with it's own mess, then clean up the poop from Ikado's habitat, then clean Ikado itself.

If I can, I will give it a more interesting toy to play with (a ball? a leaf? really, anything...) and stay with Ikado until the next time in needs to poop... and then see if I can train it in a litterbox, or even just to avoid a repeat. If it does well, it will get a crab!
>>
>>4981745
Yep, that's possible.

>>4981762
Clocktick's mechanism eventually stalls, and you're quite sure that twisting it further will damage it. When you release it, however, the creature goes into overdrive. It zips around in laps, its speed doubling the whole time.

Once it's over, however, it collapses onto the ground and begins twitching. Seems like doing this will tire it out severely.

Unique Ability!
Clocktick may be wound up before battles, which gives it increased Attack, but has a 33% chance of lingering aftereffects.

The gentle reassurance makes Helmsbuck feel a lot better, now that he realises he won't be scolded. He makes a half-hearted attempt to stick the tree back, but fails, and just wanders off to do something else.

>>4981845
Strumling, being a stubborn little thing, is resistant to trying out new music at first. But eventually, he starts vocalising a new cover of the song he's been introduced to. It's loud, proud, and audible to all the Monsters and Anons on the ranch.

Helmsbuck halts, and quickly trots over to your side to assist! It’s strong enough to lift one half of the bush easily, and the two of you will be able to get it disposed of.

Looks like the little buddy is learning some responsibility! That ought to influence its evolution.

The other monsters are the ones owned by the other anons. Ideally, as the quest progresses, you and the others will end up clashing and fighting in tournaments against other digital creatures, to get stronger. Might be beneficial to make alliances early, or something.

>>4982147
Strathawk coos softly, and seems quite upset. But it immediately stops torturing the poor things.

>>4981936

Babies require food. And it’s not long before the creatures are [b]hungry[/b] again! Every creature starts making noise around the same time, chirping or squeaking while requesting food.

IKADO, STRUMLING and STRATHAWK also poop, leaving a bit of a mess.

Now that you guys have child-level Digital creatures, the wild lands outside of the ranch are open to you. So long as your creature isn’t in need of feeding, medicine, or cleaning, you may go out and adventure! Quests like this will provide opportunities for your creature to develop its personality further, and gain strength, but have a risk of injury.

Strathawk and Strumling are very eager to go.

Strumling is overjoyed to see you too.

Ikado has indeed shit in the box, becoming a little more disciplined from the reprimand. He enjoys the crab greatly. The three of you, together with your monsters, head down to Data Cove. It’s a wide area, with digital water splashing against the shores. You can see creatures leaping about in the waves. There’s also rumor of Cryptocurrency buried in this beach, from an old pirate creature. Plenty of activities to do here! Different activities will imbue your creatures with certain traits, and the things you do will influence their evolution and personality. For example, Strathawk might have become stronger, but more callous if allowed to keep disemboweling things. And Ikado has become more disciplined, but a bit more afraid of scoldings.

Meanwhile, you two go together to File Forest! Its depths are filled with Beasts and Bugs. Viral types and Data types are common here, so Helmsbuck isn’t at the biggest advantage right now. The forest is filled with fruit, and you could get a nutritional treat for your lads if you want. You’ve also heard rumors of a rare file being present here: The location of a Matatutske patch in the real world. What’ll you do in this forest?

The two of you scoop up whatever tasty morsels you can find. Orange berries, fat looking stonefruits from low branches, and what looks like a wild melon. Eventually, however, Helmsbuck stops by the base of a large tree. There’s a white apple atop it, with a semicircular chunk taken out of it. Looks expensive. But it’s too high to grab. What’ll you have Helmsbuck do, to get it down?

It's a pleasant environment, and we're here the first time. I'm okay just to relax, but what would you like to do, Ikado?
>>
>>4982501

Helmsbuck nods at the command. He takes his place in front of the tree, remembering the incident from earlier where he broke a bush. You can see him trying to be more conscious, and this time, he controls his strength to release a punch into the trunk! Vibrations shudder up the length of the digital wood, sending voxels and leaf particles flying. The apple drops down.

>APPLE firmware obtained!

Ooh, this looks like a rather expensive, but frail fruit. You’ve unlocked an EVOLUTION ITEM. You may hold on to it and integrate it into a creature’s evolution once the time comes, to put a sort of theme into it. This one provides a chrome, futuristic aesthetic, but tends to be a glass cannon.

You may trade and sell such items between yourselves, and make deals with other anons. It’s also possible to find evolution items that change future attributes.

Helmsbuck is getting tired, but has learned quite a bit today! He’s good for one more activity before getting exhausted.

As shown before, Ikado is a playful sort, and enjoys the tactile sensation of using its flippers to bat things about. It seems to want to play in the sand, and is enjoying tossing clouds of sand into the air. It’s not very friendly behavior for playing with other pets, but he’s having a good time.

What’ll you do?

"Good job, Helmsbuck."

>Go collect mushrooms

I'm not gonna be leaving this place without a encounter, but that's for the 2nd action.
>>
>>4982511
Nothing wrong with playing with sand, it isn't as if Ikado's getting anyone else in the plume.

Once we've both had a spot of downtime, let's do a bit of searching. Food or treasure, hmm... actually, since Ikado eats seafood, we could sort of do both together? Treasure sounds more fun, though!
>>
>>4982540
If you pick treasure, you’ll be competing with Strathawk and his owner to get it. Will be based on rolls!

>>4982530
Helmsbuck raises the apple triumphantly, and then starts the search for mushrooms. It’s the second activity of the day, and Helmsbuck is a bit tired. Roll me a 1d6, please, to see the degree of success in locating the mushroom, and to determine any random events that happen on the way.

>>4982535
As for fruit hunting, you’re able to gather up the same sort of local fruits. Instead of the apple, however, Clocktick seems to take notice of something else. It leads you towards a sort of clearing in the forest. The air is rather still, and in the middle of a glade sits a large bulb. Traces of crackling static are present in the air around it. It definitely seems virus-affiliated.

>Approach and investigate
>Leave, this doesn’t look safe

Sounds fun.
I want to approach with clocktick but in case only one of us can go, then he'll go.

With its sharp vision, Strathawk is adept at searching. It takes off into the sky for a brief moment, gliding over the sands and checking out the terrain. When it returns to you, it screeches and guides you towards a spot, where you can begin digging!

From the air, this spot certainly looks like an X, with the marking being made from parts of the natural environment. Your pet has managed to apply its innate skills, and gotten better at searching! It’s a bit worn out and [HUNGRY], requiring feeding, but is satisfied at having gotten some money for the two of you.

Gained 8 Cryptocoins! I’ll make a store once I’m back home. For now, you may either:
>Return home
>Pick 1 more new activity.
>>
>>4982547
>Approach with Clocktick
Both is valid, yeah. The two of you inch forward. Your little friend winds up the key on his back, and then prepares to lunge at the bulb if it does anything suspicious. He seems grateful that you’ve come down with him, and is ready to guard you if anything goes wrong. You’re able to get up close to it without anything bad happening.

When you’re within three feet of it, however, the bulb unfurls all of a sudden. Clocktick panics and raises his limbs, scuttling backwards and trying to drag you away. Within the bulb is some kind of strange, spasming mass. It looks like corrupted data, half-formed and ready to be spat out into the forest…

>Get Clocktick to destroy it
>Try and harvest the object
>Leave it be, don’t fuck with viruses
>Other
>>
>>4982560
Your little companion is rather tired, but manages to power through! By the time the search is complete, he’s quite [HUNGRY], but has managed to locate the cache! Hidden in the files, beneath the roots of a tree, you two find a mushroom. The object contains the real-world geolocation of a mushroom patch, and the information is almost as valuable as the actual fungi. Unfortunately, you’re in the digital world and can’t really go out and get it.

However, as you handle the mushroom data, you see Helmsbuck staring at it hungrily. It looks rather enticing to him…

>Give him the mushroom to eat
>Sell the mushroom (+5 Cryptocoins for purchasing other things)

>>4982583
>Give him the mushroom to eat
He did manage to find it and the "apple" is valuable enough on its own

Ah, PC peaks. These mountains are filled with Vaccine types, and Doracle is a bit hesitant to go where they’ll be targeting him. But adventure calls! It’s rugged and rocky, and the sun shines brightly on the two of you. It’s a good day to be out in nature. You two could embark on training, adventure, or things of the sort. To keep the mountains cool, there are gigantic flat plateaus in places, with huge fans that rotate and blow hot air up. Creatures use these to fly, but you could potentially also hijack them and travel through the mountains.

Ah, the roll was to search for treasure and compete. But you chose to go for food instead, so no need to roll.

>>4982562
Ikado flops through the shallows, searching for clams in the sand or anything like that. You help with searching as well. After a while, you both have gathered a respectable amount of clams. If you bring this back to the ranch, everyone could enjoy a good meal.

Ikabo blubbers and gets your attention. He’s discovered an open clam! And inside it is a valuable-looking pearl. Your pet seems ready to snag it up. He’s quite the hasty little guy, after all. But you can sense something a bit off in the area…

>Grab the pearl

I have to go to sleep again. But when I’m able to get to a Pc, I’ll do the fishing combat and post the battle mechanics. It’s still on-trial for the battle ones, so I apologize if it’s clunky or a flawed system.

Could you potentially use multiple evolution items at a time or just one every time your pet evolves?
>>
>>4982607
You can use just one, yeah. Doing so will change the color and aesthetic of your pet, while not using one preserves the natural progression it would have.

>>
>>4981260
I don't know if i am late or can i still join?
>>
>>4982597
I look around the area and see if there's any obvious reason Ikado shouldn't grab the pearl; but if there's no obvious reason not to that we can detect, we try to grab that pearl!
>>
>>4982846
Yeah, sure thing. You can be the 2nd last person. That’ll put us at 9, and absolute cap is 10.

Reaching home soon and I’ll be able to properly attach images, do art, etc.
>>
Yo, just checking in to make sure Strathawk's fed
>>
>>4983235
Good timing, I was just about to do it.

The rest of the pets are getting a bit peckish! Some have been fed recently, or are seconds away from fighting, and are exempt until after. As everyone is out in the wilderness, you don't have to clean their shit up, so that's foregone for now.

Clocktick and Doracle are hungry!

Replying to these to remind myself to post after this one. These eggs too.

>>4981853

And I've come up with the battle mechanics!

Battle mechanics:

There are three stats:
Attack
Defence
Hp

Creatures have: 1 atk 1 def 2 hp by default.

Defense is a shield that prevents your HP from being lowered, and each successful attack busts through 1 defence point

On turns, you attack your opponent and try to beat their defense roll. Defending is different from having a defense stat.

Attack- Roll 1d4+atk
Defend- Roll 1d6

A coin is flipped to see who goes first, and each creature gets to attack a number of times equal to their atk, at the end of which, the battle ends.

Winner priority:
Whoever doesn’t have 0hp
Higher HP
If same HP, Higher Hp percentage

Virus gains +1 attack against Data, Data gains +1 hp against Vaccine, Vaccine gains +1 defence against Virus.

Each of you guys get 2 stat points to put into your stats, so reply and lemme know what your pet will spec into!

No obvious reason, no. And Ikado is very eager to do so-

And as he reaches for the pearl, the clamshell snaps down and tries to take his tentacle off. He swiftly pulls it back and smacks the clam, causing it to skitter across the sand. Two little eyes open up, and the digital creature snaps its jaws menacingly.

Ikado has been pulled into a battle!
Coin flip time:

Your little friend takes the mushroom and gratefully chows down on it. He looks up to you gratefully and offers up half of it. Unfortunately, humans can't eat digital food, but it's the thought that counts. Your little pet is having a great day. You may not have gotten the coins, but giving him such a valuable present has strengthened your bond.

With your adventure complete, the two of you head home to the ranch! You do notice something a bit odd, however... Helmsbuck is sneezing! Seems he's caught a bit of a bug.

Helmsbuck is sick! Check in to administer treatment.

>Relax

As your second activity, the two of you spend some time relaxing and contemplating on the beach. Strathawk is practicing flying, and spends some time flapping around in the sand while watching the confrontation between Ikado and the wild Digiform. Eventually, your pet calms down and approaches you. He takes some time to just sit there, admiring the setting sun after a long day of adventuring. The contemplation mellows him out just a little bit, and he curbs his hyperactivity for a while to just enjoy the moment.

Time to go home.

Fishing! You grab one of the rods and take your place by a pier. Strumling watches, looking rather impatient. It takes a while, because the little fella keeps blaring noise and scaring away the fish. But eventually, you get a bite! Strumling helps you with the rod, and you pull a fine specimen onto the sand. Perfect for eating- if you can take it down, that is!

The two of you explore PC Peaks! Doracle's ability seems rather useful in preventing any accidents. He's able to predict whenever you're about to step on a loose rock, or somewhere unsafe. Unfortunately, he can't actually prevent you from doing it, but in the immediate aftermath, you're always able to right yourself. It makes your bond quite a bit stronger!

At one point, a landslide causes the two of you to get covered in dust and rubble, though neither of you are harmed. Doracle stops immediately. He refuses to move on until his horn is properly shined again! It'll make your trek quite a bit longer if he just stands here to do it, and he's being a little stubborn about moving on.

Despite Clocktick's protests, you harvest the item! It looks like a swirling mass of missing textures, that form odd chunks. You've obtained a [BUGBUD], an evolutionary item! This will likely infect a creature with a virus and change its type, but as it's missing textures, won't result in a change of palette. Your creature may not be very happy to have it used, but if you ever need a type-change upon evolving, this is how you do it.

Well, I'll comment while your pet fucks around, I guess.

Blipbloop is a digital sentinel that usually sits within the mainframe, killing viruses in transit. It has a transient physical form, and rides around on a cloud of antiviral programming. Visually, it's a bit garish to look at, and it prefers to not have a solid body at all. But in order to get stronger, its made a bond with you and is prepared to experience the simulated digital world, instead of the realm of code.

She uses this to close in on prey, and then cuts them apart with her glass edges.

Doracle slowly nods and follows along. You've taught him an important lesson about pride, and that he can't let it get in the way all the time. He obeys you and decides to put up with the indignity of his sullied horn.

Eventually, the two of you climb to a peak! From there, you can see a huge valley below, with a river running through it. It's a wonderful sight, and you've caught it JUST as the sun begins to set. If you had dallied down there, you'd have missed this beautiful view.

Doracle's eyes go wide as he beholds the sight. And after fully taking it in, he starts cleaning his horn once you two take a break up top.

Oh yeah missed that.
Uhh, 2 points into ATK. With that skill, what else?
>>
>>4983491
Using your skill gives you 1 bonus attack in a battle, which stacks with your stats. There's also 1 bonus attack if you fight a Data type, which makes Clocktick an absolute unholy terror with up to 5 attack as a first-stage creature. But winding his key has a 1/3 chance of permanently damaging him.

>>4983473
By this, did you mean using the skill, or just moving the key?
Clocktick may be wound up before battles, which gives it increased Attack, but has a 33% chance of lingering aftereffects.

If possible, I'd also want to encourage her to hunt any small critters around the area to train her reflection ability, though she might do that on her own anyways.

Training tools: 5 Coins
Buying one will allow your pets to train. You can choose between three types, and purchasing a unique type will allow you a stat increase of the corresponding type. Can only occur one time per stat.

Deluxe food x2 : 3 Coins
Increases your pet's happiness significantly, and they'll need double the amount of time between feedings, for the period after eating.

Deluxe Ranch: 10 Coins
Say goodbye to the rest of these suckers on the communal ranch. You're hitting the big time, baby! Receive a specialised place that suits your creature's individual needs. Permanent happiness boost and they'll naturally evolve into stronger forms that exemplify their existing traits.

No qualms, it's just a clam, like the ones we've just been gathering up. Ikado eats seafood, I feed it fish and crabs myself. Well done on the win there, buddy!

It has been roughly 48 hours since their hatching, and the two oldest pets have both gone through quite a bit.

For Helmsbuck, he's been taught to control his strength, and to take accountability for his actions. He has developed into a disciplined youth, who prides himself in martial ability and the power of his armour and body.

Strumling is wild and aggressive. One might find him a bit uncontrollable, but he certainly knows how to get his way and express himself. He's loud and proud, and an excellent fighter.

The wild Strumling has evolved! Its waveform splits into three, and it can maintain three separate chords of sound at once. The organ on its nose allows it to blast out piercing sonic bursts. Its body is well-suited for swimming, and it excels in amphibious terrain. This evolution is very much a completely natural progression, and hasn't been stunted in any way.

>>4983859

>>4983967
Helmsbuck, meanwhile, has grown his horns in. The introduction of the Apple Firmware has altered his evolution! Cybernetic parts adorn his body, integrated deeply into his systems. Portions of his armour plating have been replaced by white chrome, and most notably, a helmet obscures his little face.

Combat-wise, he's able to carry out a speedy analysis of enemies, and strikes with brass knuckles and chrome-tipped boots.
>>
>>4983973
>>4983983
>>4983977

The two of them are [Hungry] after evolving, so perhaps they could benefit from some tasty foraged clams.

As the next two oldest, Ikado and Strathawk are next in line. Both have been fed and maintained for 48 hours, have been taught certain things, and have gone on adventures, so they're ready to evolve! Just as soon as I get the sprites.
>>
Let's go to the Data Cove, to search for material, cryptocurrency and fight
>>
>>4983848
Vespray, during your attempt to make a sort of nest for her, shows off some of her natural skills! She pulps a tree and starts using the bark to form a nest. It's slow, and will take a while, but she's adept at making natural shelter. You also notice a bit of a swarm forming around her, of strange glitches in the digital world.

Special skill!
When reduced to 0 HP, Vespray isn't instantly defeated. Instead, she summons a typeless, 1hp, 1atk 'swarm' creature, which replaces her and resumes combat. This creature is used for calculations at the end of combat, to determine a winner.


>>4983993
Doracle has been on an adventure a bit too recently, and is still tired out. You may bring him on a quest, but there's a chance of 1/3 chance of exhaustion setting in per activity, which counts as a Care Mistake (permanent penalty for evolutions, etc).

>>4983983

Two more contenders come in, to join the clam buffet.

>>4983580

First, STRATHAWK has evolved! It now has larger wings, and is capable of constant flight unlike its previous stage. From the search it did, it develops golden eyes that can pinpoint weak points from vast distances away.

From looking at past records of the species, however, your pet is slightly different. A normal Strathawk gets a bit sharper than this when it evolves. Longer claws, a savage beak, and unbridled cruelty. But you've tempered that vicious streak through raising it a certain way. It's less physically imposing, but more intelligent, and less prone to making mistakes due to any innate sadism. If you continue down this route, you'll continue getting a creature that's different from the baseline. Or if you prefer the sound of the other path, you could change your raising style.

>>4983977

Ikado is chaotic, rather than violent. You've allowed it to exercise a bit of a creative streak, so its developed as a creature that uses multiple tentacles to slap and grapple foes. It's quite physically affectionate too! Despite being a Virus type, he's quite kind, and has learned the importance of sharing and altruism. It's also an evolution that's quite different from the baseline, due to its treatment.

You and Pokeog come across one of the gigantic fans that keep the mountain from overheating. High above, bird-type Digital beasts leave shadows in their wake. As you observe, a creature crashes through a nearby thicket! It looks like it's running from some predator. The beast leaps onto the fan blades, and the light little thing is blasted high into the air, and out of danger.

You hear the pursuer getting closer to you. It sounds big- larger than your Baby-level pet can take, probably. What'll you do?

While out exploring with Blipbloop, you two find an area in the woods that seems... Corrupted, in a way. Huge chunks of the terrain are missing. The mushroom caches are probably in the area. They're just as rare as the real mushrooms, and someone has already found one today, so you'll be having a bit of trouble. You'll need to watch your step, since you can't hover unlike your pet.

Roll a 1d6!

>>4984116
Fishing time! You cast your rod across a pier, while Shiftshard watches. You spot your pet reflecting her light and frying tiny beach creatures, while cackling mischievously.

Moments after you drop the line, you feel it go limp. When you pull it out, the string has been cut! You quickly replace it.

Five minutes later, it happens again.

And again.

And again!

By your fifth string, you're getting rather hot and frustrated by the situation. Shiftshard is also getting annoyed, and floats over the water to look down below.

Unbeatable, which breaks down one of Massacrab's defence points.

Unfortunately, at the end of it, Massacrab has managed to strike twice! The first hit cracked a glass shield that your pet put up, and the second cracked part of the mirror. You're able to read the room, and figure that you're losing! And so, you grab your pet and drag it away, fleeing the battle with the both of you alive.

The two of you search the beach. Shiftshard has a sort of special method of helping out. She's quite upset after the loss, but the activity helps take her mind off this. She hovers above you, watching out for any glints of light from objects on the beach.

You two come across a big hole in the ground, with a shovel next to it. Looks like someone has already unearthed the chest rumored to be here. But before you stop looking, Shiftshard spots something made of glass, in the sand.

The two of you unearth it, revealing a message in a bottle!

Inside is the location to another cache of buried treasure. Unfortunately, it's in a completely separate region of the digital world, so you can't dig it up yourself. But you can sell the info, at least.

The hands on Clocktick's head tick down. 48 hours, a battle, some adventuring... The conditions for evolution have been met!

For Clocktick, there were two paths possible. One could have focused on the bug-like aspects of it, or the machine-like parts. Making use of its mechanical biology and feeding it gears has caused it to take on the latter's attributes! Now, it's a tough, hulking fella, with pistons and cylinders giving it great lifting strength. Physically, it's tied with Strumling for having the most raw strength.

Doracle has received quite a bit of development. He has overcome its nature as an innately-corrupting virus, and an air of nobility lingers around him. He no longer lets his pride be something petty. Instead, it's the pride of a warrior and a knight.

His bond with his trainer is so strong that the blanket he was gifted has been properly integrating into his body upon evolution. He wears the muffler as a reminder of what he's fighting for.

Blipbloop phases into the ground and returns with a shimmering mass of data. Hey, it's gotten it! You're not really sure if it can properly taste, so it might be a waste to give the cache to it. It might be about the principle, though.

Either way, these coordinates have some value, and you can find a buyer easily.

You and Pokeog hunker down in a bush. It learns the value of patience once the enemy walks into view. It's some sort of gigantic viral organism, crackling with static and drooping with black tendrils. Trying to battle it would have ended in disaster.

The creature quickly passes by, and after making sure it's gone, you two exit and sigh in relief. It's a good thing your digital companion isn't the hot-headed type, and it's certainly not going to be charging in after this.

Cya!

Most of the creatures can sleep on the ground, and prefer to. But as with Digimon, even vaguely humanoid creatures are... Weird. They still prefer to sleep on things like pet beds, and even Angemon shits on the floor. As such, Doracle is satisfied with just an old bed, that he can curl up on.

The fans are powered by some sort of hardware deep beneath the mountain, and it's inaccessible at the moment. But the two of you are able to ride the currents and use them safely, after some experimentation. The fans send you and Pokeog up onto a clifftop, where you're able to look out at the mountains! A new day dawns right as you reach, and Pokeog takes a moment to appreciate the scenery.

As the two of you go out hunting, you hear a sudden gunshot. A branch collapses from above, nearly hitting you. Blipbloop fizzles out of existence for a moment, and right before the branch hits you, it goes flying off into the distance. Blipbloop emerges from within it, having possessed the object for a moment. It gives you a thumbs up, before turning to face the attacker.

Clocktick fashions the wood into a huge club. With his ogre-like strength, he wields it easily.

The four of you head to Ram Ravine through one of the local P2P teleporters. Immediately, you're spawned at the base of a vast, dark ravine. You can see ruins in the distance, from a failed colony. High above, dragon-type Digiforms fly about, releasing plumes of fire at each other. It looks like a bleak landscape. Helmsbuck seems excited at the prospect of training here.

You and Clocktick head to the ruins. There were clear attempts at starting up a civilisation once. But from the scorch marks on the buildings, and the gouges on the stone textures, it looks like dragons besieged the settlements. Clocktick looks down to see a CD crushed underfoot. The two of you come across a region where the surroundings almost look like glass. It looks like it's been attacked by heat so overwhelming that it was...

Burned to CD.

Anyway, there's a definite possibility that something useful was converted into a disc. Might have been data from an old creature, physical belongings, maybe even... Parts of a human. But anyway, time to roll a 1d6 to search!

You can see quite a few digital creatures passing by. There are larger versions of the Slamshells, likely to be Youth evolutions, and dozens of fish swimming around. There's also something that looks like a temple! As you approach, a stream of data streaks past in the current. Ikado latches on to it and pulls it free, revealing a little informational blurb!

It seems like this area was once aboveground, and prayed to a Digital God of the sea- one of the System Admins of old. But when they got sloppy with their prayers and offerings, their blessings were revoked. And when they committed a grave sin against it, the God sunk this whole region into the sea.

The temple and ships in the area ought to have something good. Roll a 1d6 to search!

In the midst of the ruins, you find a disc drive that's warm to the touch. It definitely has some sort of info inside it. It looks like it contains Heat data! Using this as an [Evolutionary Item] would give a creature a fiery palette, and likely grant them a sort of elemental affinity. It seems like the flames of a dying Dragon was imbued into this disc sometime during that ancient battle.

Apart from that, Clocktick is sorta messing around in the ruins. He's curious about everything, and seems to be underestimating his new strength. He keeps on pushing over statues and flicking stone railings, sending bits and pieces flying into the distance.

You and Vespray head up to PC peaks! Vespray has the hands necessary to grab a pickaxe, so the two of you get to work. You stroll into the old mines and search around for anything of value. It doesn't take long to locate some veins of bitcoin. You begin bitcoin mining, which takes up a bit of time.

But halfway through this mining, Vespray abruptly tossed her pickaxe down. She seemed to be throwing a little bit of a fit, and refused to carry on with the physical activity. As a Queen of bugs, it seems she has a little bit of a Diva streak to her...

Clocktick has a bit of a stiff, mechanical nature. He doesn't fully understand the subtle implications of disrespecting ancient ruins, of flinging shit around, but he does get that you don't want him to be making such a mess. And as such, he puts the statues back up without complaint!

The next step is to construct a camp. It takes a while to find trees, or any materials that can easily be moved around. But Clocktick is strong enough to do the heavy lifting. You two are able to set up a camp that the other creatures and explorers can stay at, to make their time in the Ravine a bit easier.

Where's the camp?

Very sorry for the post fuckup. Replied to the wrong creature, and thus made a scenario that wasn't appropriate to its personality.

Shiftshard is a little bit tired from the battle yesterday. The two of you head into the mines to do some bitcoin mining, which is definitely the most classic way to get Cryptocurrency. You split blockchains with your clickaxe and get the cash out from within.

Halfway through, you notice that Shiftshard has gone missing! You manage to go deeper into the mines, where you see her hovering in front of some bat-like creatures. She's giggling mischievously and reflecting light at them, causing them to shy away and fly deeper into the cave.

You and Ikado eventually come across a sort of shrine, cracked and buried. A disc is perched in the central altar. Bubbles rise up around it every so often, blocking the view in your goggles.

Combat analysis- Helmsbuck can choose to lose 1 ATK, but becomes able to use 1d6+(DEF/2) instead of 1d6 to defend.

You gotta roll that attack on your turn, instead of the dice roll you made (Which would have been 1d4+2), but you may choose to activate this ability at the start of the battle. Will you do it?

Also rolling Winvern's defence.

Clocktick watches as you open the area to everyone. He's definitely noted the altruism. The two of you busy yourselves setting the safehouse out, marking it with the symbol of the communal ranch, so that every explorer can use it. After a while, the area is complete, and secured!

Finally, before you exit, you two do one more sweep of the worn-down house. You do find some old Cryptocurrency! One million units in a drive! Unfortunately, that particular one has depreciated majorly in recent years, so it's only worth 2 at the moment. Oh well, it's something for your good deed.

>>4985158
This disc - would be very useful for you, Ikado. We should investigate if we could salvage it.

First, we look around the temple to see if there are any inscriptions that suggest how this disc might be released, and how contact in the past was maintained with the being(s) this temple was made to honour. We wouldn't want to offend this being if it might be observing.

if we find something we'll have to consider how to proceed, but if we find nothing we will simply ask. 'Being of the depths, would you object if we took this disc?'

If there is no response to THAT, Ikado will sit himself upon the alter, his tentacles upon the columns. He will carefully take hold of the disk, and then use his tentacles and a jet of water to boost himself and the disc from the alter and out of the temple in one fluid movement.

The temple doesn't have inscriptions referring to the disc. The name of the deity itself is in some archaic coding language, and you can't quite decipher it, but you can at least recognise it whenever it crops up. The disc is an offering, rather than anything attached to the temple.

When you speak, there's no response from the statues or markings in the temple. It doesn't seem to have a security system either, from observation.

And afterwards, Ikado is able to jet away with the disc in his hands! There's no immediate response to the heist, and after a few minutes, you're sure that nothing is coming for you, and the temple isn't about to explode or anything.

Got an AQUA DISC! This evolution item adds on an aquatic theme to a creature upon evolving. If used on a creature that already embodies this attribute, however, it grants them 1 additional HP. It can also be used to reshuffle one's colour scheme to something with ocean hues.

Strumling has 2 hp, and is full glass cannon, so if he can't reduce an enemy to beneath 3 hp due to them stacking too much def or raw HP, he'd lose a fight. Your go to attack again! One more hit will just outright defeat the foe, leaving it with 0hp.

As you travel, Shiftshard manages to spot an enemy! It's a little fella hiding under a rock. As you approach, it leaps into action, spurned on by the presence of a virus-type.

You order your pet to take it down. The Winvern lunges one last time, and Helmsbuck leaps forward to deliver a series of blows using its martial arts techniques. It strikes over and over, before finally turning away from it.

Without waiting for you, Helmsbuck dramatically walks off. As soon as he turns his back, the creature bursts into wisps of data, and is scattered into the mountain.

As Strumling leaps back, he deposits the handful of feathers by your feet. He then blares his sound at maximum volume, using conflicting waveforms and bursting the inside of its body into smithereens. It's discombobulated from within, and eventually disintegrates into a distorted, shimmering mass.

There’s four evolutionary stages. For each pet, I have an evolution theme in mind by default, which changes depending on treatment and how it’s personality forms. For example, the enemy Strumling fought would have been Strathawk’s evolution, if he hadn’t been trained to be less cruel.

The two of you make the trek to PC Peaks, and wander into the caves. She's excited at first to be out and about, but soon gets tired of the walking and strutting, and begs to be carried at points. There's plenty of old pickaxes you can salvage, and the two of you spend a hard afternoon breaking blockchains apart to harvest the bitcoin within!

Before you're done, however, you hear a clinking sound. Vespray has thrown down the pickaxe. She looks tired, and is currently crossing her arms and stomping her feet. Both of you have been at it for the same amount of time, but she's currently throwing a tantrum and doesn't want to take part in the tiring work anymore.

Seems like as a Queen of bugs, she has a bit of a diva streak...

Fruits are easy to come across. Whenever you find anything on a high branch, Blipbloop simply hacks into the mainframe and deletes the connecting portions, forcing them to spill onto the ground, where you can pick them up. You get quite a lot of tasty fruits. They all look like local wildlife. Cloudberries, fruits filled with iron fillings, juicy citrus-like fruits that taste like battery acid, all sorts.

You abruptly come across a strange region in the forest, however. Blipbloop creates a popup, showing that the local clock has been set to Friday the 13th, Halloween. That doesn't really make sense, considering Halloween is on a 31st, but the more you look at the popup, the more your head hurts.

Sitting there is what looks like a pumpkin, moving up and down idly. It's clearly not a digital creature, but plants don't move like that. Blip also grabs your attention with a series of bloops, motioning to the grass around the region. Pixel by pixel, the greenery is taking on a dead, brown tone, radiating outwards from the item.

Ah, Jif Jungle. Everything here is in constant motion. Many parts of the digital world are eerily still, made of pixels, voxels, and stock images. It can get eerie at time, especially for a human visitor. But Jif Jungle is different. Everything is in constant motion, and it can get dizzying. Nauseating ,even. Camouflaged creatures are extremely common here, as the moving pixels make their square patterns nigh impossible to spot.

The two of you pack your bags and say goodbye to the others. The Deluxe ranch is smaller, but is meant for one creature to have all the space to itself. Shiftshard's ideal environment resembles a temple, with smooth marble architecture and lavish surroundings. It's kept cool, and past the marble slab is a starry purple void, that twinkles beautifully. It's constant twilight here.

Immediately, she seems very happy, despite the two losses. That's money well spent. While her fitness has gone down, her happiness is extremely high now.

The two of you search for some plants for your pet to eat. There's some roots and edible bulbs along the way, but nothing like his favourite crunchy snack. Soon, you run out of any treat rations you had along the way. No more eating till back at the farm, unfortunately, but you do manage to find a flower right as you clamber onto the edge of a sheer cliff.

The Ravine is already filled with vaccine types, who sweep between the walls and delete viruses with impunity. And so, it's natural that the flora has natural antiviral properties. You're able to obtain the flower easily.

Evolution item- Vaccblossom. Changes the type of your Digital pet to Vaccine when used as an evolution item.

Ikado wraps his limbs around the crab and jams his beak in between the shell. He injects viral data into it, and the two of them grapple for supremacy.

The two of you decide to check out the fans. You spend some time observing other creatures, watching how they leap onto the air currents and use them to travel about or take to the skies.

Eventually, the two of you feel confident enough to hop on. And indeed, it's a fun experience! Vespray spreads her little arms and flaps them, as though imagining flying for real. The two of you use the fans to travel across a valley, getting to the other side safely.

One particular trait of the PC Peaks fans is that they spin fast enough to generate such a strong gust that there's nothing heavy enough to fall into the blades and get ground up. However, there are some that spin a lot slower, as supplementary fans...

And during your acrobatics, the two of you are blown by a current into a slower-spinning region. You notice too late that you're both headed for the blades! And your body weight is pushing you down, rather than being blown upwards. Vespray begins to panic, as you go speeding towards the rapidly-turning, razor-sharp fan blades.

What'll you do?

In the case of Vespray, she wouldn't be too averse to it, unlike Clocktick, who is a Vaccine type and hostile towards Virus types. Since the standard Data type is preyed on by viruses, introducing such data isn't conflicting with its role.

Vespray panics and flails, squealing in terror as the two of you drop. It's like that old charlie and the chocolate factory movie with Gene Wilder, but in reverse. You manage to grab on to her and hold her tight. She responds to your grip, but is still clearly terrified.

The fans, unfortunately, are PC fans, and so have no non-moving portion. It's danger all the way down. And thus, the second option is activated! You spike Vespray out of range, pushing her out of the wind column. She flies backwards, reaching out for you and squealing as you plummet to your seeming doom. The last thing you see is her red eyes, wide with shock, before you fall into darkness. No matter what, she'll be safe, at the cost of your own life.

Bwoomph.

You're... Alive. You immediately sneeze as you try to reclaim the breath that was knocked out of you. Up above, you can see Vespray at the very edge of the spinning blades, just out of the actual wind column. Light streaks in from the skybox, blocked ever half-second by the spinning blades, and as you look around, you notice that you're on a mattress of dust and powdery fragments. Ew, gross. It gets all over your clothes. Looks like you've managed to drop precisely through the hole in the fan blades, and escaped being chopped to bits. Your pet will never forget that you were willing to sacrifice yourself for her in a heartbeat.

Ahead of you is a tunnel, leading deeper into the fan network, presumably. Vespray can't come down here with you, but she quickly sends a swarm through the fan blades to guide you in the darkness. After scrambling about in the caverns for what feels like an hour, you finally reach a metallic trapdoor, and bust it open.

On the other side is your grateful pet, nearly in tears, who immediately latches on to you for a hug.

That's a +2, so it'll be 5. Rolling defence.

No worries!

Raw evo it is!

Shiftshard, after her many experiences, evolves! She's been in more scraps than other Baby-stage creatures, just that she's lost them both. The battles left her glass body slightly broken and battered, but upon evolving in an ideal environment, she managed to mitigate the damage!

Surprisingly, her next stage turned out to be close to humanoid, rather than the mechanical shape her body plan implied. She used the damage fragment of her code to form a mirror, instead of letting her body be destroyed.

And lastly, further-examining the previous skill has unlocked her innate ability.

[Skill unlocked!]
When this creature is defence-broken, it can attack one more time, though its modifier doesn't change.


Ah, and of course, she's very hungry after this.

-

As an aside, some info on skills, since not everybody got them yet. Skills are unlocked by investigating your pets, and discovering a particular aspect of their biology! For example, Vespray was used to build a hive immediately, so her skill was unlocked. Clocktick was wound up to max speed, etc.

Does she get bonus stat points for evolving in the deluxe ranch, or are the "stronger evolutions" more in the sense of them having easier-to-access and/or stronger abilities or something and not a stat thing?
>>
>>4988316
well that sounds bad
>>
>>4988318
She would have, but the 'stronger' evo was more of her being rescued from a not-so-good evolution, due to the ranch and happiness. So it evened out to zero in the end.

Still get the regular +2 stat points per stage. Future evos might be even stronger if she does particularly well, though, since you have the added buff of the ranch.

Roll a d6, then roll one more attack. And afterwards, the battle will conclude.
