E Being near the brain is sorta neccesary for brain control.
D helps in my long and hard to explain plan for us
DV I'd like to keep sight, plus helps my plan, plus actually enhances sight.

For now, but how long until we move on to fish? We'll get there eventually.

How long until we move on to mammals? Also, this is an alien planet. Warm-blooded squid and fish may be done.

Now that's just silly.

E) Situate ourselves in a different part of the intestinal tract higher up and closer to the brain, where blood flow is more strained but there are more capillaries and veins.

closer to the brain

Now fully opaque, what colour do you wish to be?
C) White, from loss of pigment due to living with no light.

brains are Grey. white is almost Grey. seeing as we want to be in the brain this makes sense to me


How do you want to evolve? Choose two.
A) Develop a biochemical anaesthetic, to prevent the host from feeling pain in the area in which we are feeding. (Stealth +++)
----- V) Produce a biochemical that causes obtundation, dulling the victimís mind and lessening their mental capacity, either temporarily or permanently at more potent levels.

D) Develop a series of photophores just underneath the exoskeleton, allowing you to produce bioluminescence. (The ability to produce light.)

----- IV) Emit light from the infrared spectrum.[I]

if they have a lesser mental capacity it will make it easier to controll them later.

Do we need to worry about stealth if we're in the brain? How are we going to be seen in the brain?

That seems like a valid concern...yeah.

You don't think that it might be important that we stay as invisible as possible while in the water looking for a host though?

sure thats important to but there weren't any choices for that. the color is suitable in all environments really, white does not really stand out in water. and the biochemical will help not only in keeping us hidden in the body but make it easier to gain control. also later we will be moving to creatures with longer lifespans and stealth outside the body will be far less important. to me these seem to be the best choices

also why am i the only one who has chosen 2 evolutions it clearly says chose 2?

The viscera currently don't have an out-of-host stage, since they're endoparasitic. They live, die, and breed inside celephates, and switch over to other celephates when their celephate is attacked - that's the only time that they're out of a host.

You guys need to vote more. We need two evolutions, so far we have 2 votes for DI, 1 vote for DV, DIV, and AV. AV and DI will win if no one else votes.

What do you wish to do?
E) Situate ourselves in a different part of the intestinal tract higher up and closer to the brain, where blood flow is more strained but there are more capillaries and veins.

Now fully opaque, what colour do you wish to be?
A) Black, a generally vague and unobtrusive colour.

How do you want to evolve? Choose two.
A) Develop a biochemical anaesthetic, to prevent the host from feeling pain in the area in which we are feeding. (Stealth +++)
----- V) Produce a biochemical that causes obtundation, dulling the victimís mind and lessening their mental capacity, either temporarily or permanently at more potent levels. (admitably, no the best thing right now but I'm sure it will help with mind control later)
E) Develop a series of electroplaques, allowing you to use the surrounding electric field to electrically locate objects. (The ability to electrolocate.)

For a change i won't try to figure out my own votes and explain them, instead i'll support Logic_mans votes

sidenote: Oathin, would you mind explaining a few of the pros and cons of the different color specters the biolum can be as i might opt for an different color?

I'm pretty sure it didn't say that when I voted.

Black is a better option for the water because the water is generally a dark blue, unless we're incredibly close to the surface.

My other evo vote is:

----- IV) Produce a biochemical that causes relaxation, sedating the host to prevent unwanted movements and body reactions.

Sedation is a good option for surgery, which is sort of what we'll need to do.

exept that we are never going to be in water.

so choosing a color that is hard to see in water is pointless. it makes far more sense to go white which will give us some camouflage in the brain.
