And here comes the next update. I didn't really feel like playing, plus school has started again, but once I began, the fun started. When we left off, a wanderer was around, a new baby had arrived and one of the females was still pregnant.
She's the daughter of our derp snout Kuta and therefore the half-sister of Tourmaline. Her genes are a big disappointment, as she has recessive blind eyes, no velvet paw and only a recessive toxic body. Also, the wanderer gets invited.
The tamed bearyena appears again, just in time for Kois to mate with him. She hopes to bring the bearyena genes into the pack, where they could be needed.
Tourmaline and the rest of the tribe get really hot for some reason. Also, Lame has mated with the invited toxic-body wanderer, and is ready to give birth.
Lame has given birth to a little clone of herself, the only differences between them are eyecolour (the baby's eyes are black, Lame's are green) wings (the wings have switched sides) and paws (the baby has a claw, while Lame is crippled). It's her last day, and she's pregnant again, because none of her children have inherited her J immunity so far.
Lame passes away shortly after she gave birth to a little baby girl. She inherited the toxic body and the velvet paw, but not her mother's J immunity. Because of her golden pelt and her brown dots, she's called Amber.
Our invited wanderer dies, but a new pair of mates has appeared. Tourmaline and his half-sister Rekola mate together. They are trying to start a lineage of winged, toxic bodied nichelings. Also, a wanderer appears next to the two. He looks cool, but doesn't carry the right genes (actually, they are really weird).
Also, Kois has given birth to her hybrid child, but was too old to survive the next day. The baby, Kunuro, possesses all bearyena genes (most of them recessive) and unlocks the bearyena claw. He's destined to be a warrior, and a protector of the pack.
A day passes, and Lame's clone daughter (aka Sisana I think) discovers a rabbil at the shore. She jumps onto it, trying to catch it, but fails as it jumps away- although not far enough to avoid her deadly hit. Proud, she gathers the meat and decides to become a hunter.
Meanwhile, Koana (the yellow female with the stinky tail sitting on the nest) has mated with Vannuduk. They both carry the velvet paw, and hope for a baby that carries on this precious paw onto the next generation, since it's not sure which lineage Amber will follow - the one of her older brother or her own?
Koana anxiously awaits her firstborn - only to see her hopes for a velvet paw crushed. The healthy little girl between her paws carries nothings but the digging paw - twice. Apart from that, her genes are almost pure perfection (apart from the yellow fur). Still, little Kolaana will most likely not be used for breeding.
Meanwhile, Tourmaline and his mate Rekola have decided to build their own nest, and Rekola has given birth to a daughter. However, she's not at all what expected. With double claw and lacking toxic body, Ralame is entirely not what Tourmaline and Rekola wish their line to look like.
Islais is the second result of the desperate breeding for a velvet paw. Like her older sister, she only possesses digging paws. This seems almost like a curse.
Also, Tourmaline and Rekola have their second child, a rainforest-beauty with bad eyes and recessive peacocktail, Kola. Or Coca Cola, as I like to call her.
The digging paw curse has happened again - the third daughter of Koana and Vannuduk is born, no velvet paw is to be seen in poor Rare's genetics. Meanwhile, Amber is off to discover the unknown depths of the jungle, while our huntress Sisana hunts in the grass.
Tourmaline and Rekola also had their third daughter, Memera, the first winged creature in the history of the tribe. Her crackerjaw will be perfect to crack nuts. She also has the toxic body and recessive poison fangs of her father.
While Koana gives birth to their last child, Vannuduk passes away. The tribe is panicked - will the velvet paw stay? In the early morning, little Tataku is born - the first nicheling of the tribe to carry a double velvetpaw. His genes are almost perfect, except for the non dominant webbed hindlegs, but the curse of the digging paw has been broken. He gets renamed to Velvet, showing the importance of his genes.
As you see in the top left corner, Ralame (the claw child) and Kunuro (the hybrid) are both next to a nest. This is because they are a breeding pair. The primary goal is to give the recessive bearyena genes on to the next generation, and then to pair two of their children up, to unlock all bearyena genes. The secondary, long-time goal is a line of protectors and fighters.
The double digging paw Kolaana also went to the west, since there are many roots underground.She's right next to Sisana, who's there to hunt rabbils and stagmoles.
Kolaana discovers an albinistic wanderer with poison fangs, but since he has a recessive purrsnout (I don't really use purrsnout) and a crippled paw, we won't invite him.
The fourth daughter of Tourmaline and Rekola gets born. She's basically a copy of her older sister Memera.
Our first bearyena gene kid gets born. Taroduk is perfect, except for the lacking dots and the bad fertility. The pack hopes for a female that he can mate with.
Behind the young family, a bearyena appears. He picked the wrong prey, getting killed by four hits.
Memera sits onto a tree, starting to gather food by cracking the walnuts around it open. The group is doing really well so far.
Tourmaline and Rekola get a fifth daughter, Analare. She possesses the toxic body, but lacks a wing. Her genes aren't too good, but they are alright.
Our second hybrid son gets born, showing off the poison fangs of his grandfather, Tourmaline.
Speaking of which, Tourmaline is now father to a sixth daughter, that proudly presents her toxic body. Except for her gender and her head, she's the exact reproduction of her dad.
Our two hybrid boys finally get a sister. She shares the same immunity genes with her older brother, and one with her poison fanged brother, but it is still decided that she will mate with both of them, for the sake of the new genes and the future of the pack.
This is were I'll leave everything so far. The tribe has grown since the beginning, and begins to part into three different bloodlines: The winged toxic bodies, the strong bearyena hybrids and the fast velvet paws. Let's see how well this will go.
