If anyone wants to draw the two species as they are now, at their current stage, before too much happens, it would be cool. I know I drew the Irgise over in the new species X thread over on giantitp, but that's because I was bored in class, and it wasn't that good.
Any art style is ok. Even making BSF ships to look like the species would be cool. Just remember that both of them are now spiky.
You talk to the new comer, you and your clone, and it's clone, pointing out the items and actions and everything you've named so far to it, and it grasps it all pretty quickly. You also try to come up with some sort of team tactics, but even with your minds, they are still just beyond your grasp right now. However, the various rocks and plants are becoming very familiar to you, and you eat several of them to see which are most beneficial (+7 DNA).
You continue naming things, when you bump into one of those spiny cells that you helped/helped you take down the stomper. It's not the one that helped name the ruegga, but it's still one of the two you saw. Or, rather, the two of them were one of those two. Two of the large cells are drifting around, looking for prey, which thankfully you are not.
Suddenly something very, very, very fast bursts out of the ground, climbing surface-ward very quickly. The two cells bare their teeth hungrily, and chase after it, firing their spines at it, intent on taking it down. Then another of those fast things bursts out of the hole left by the first one, then another, and another, and pretty soon it's just an absolute swarm of speed-midgets, and something else with them. Something's wrong with the speed midgets, though, and they seem to all be protecting the large, bloated, slow cells drifting out of their hole. The two big cells have chased the first midget out of sight, so you guess that the four of you... correction, the purple-dot one just split... the five of you all have to work against this midget swarm.
You note there's definitely some more advanced organs in that larger cell, and that there's something sticking out from between the eyes of each midget. It's not normal for them to swarm, although they aren't territorial, and are often found in the same place, and it's definitely not normal for them to protect anything other than their own hides. So why...?
