Welcome to CCSF 2015's wolfing run!


The run currently: Over and finished. Team Norn's Dilo lived the longest and I still have to count the babies.

Convenient links:
* Stream page
* Random event numbers
* CCSF 2015 page

Stream highlights:
* Day 1
* Day 2
* Day 3
* Day 4
* Day 5

This wolfling run is a mixture of ideas. It has seasonal food sources, random events every 30 minutes to help keep things interesting, 3 competing teams, and it will be stream live on Twitch. The seasonal food sources means that food isn't hard to find, but the creatures will have to migrate every few seasons. The random events are there to help keep things interesting and are largely borrowed from Kezune's and Ferral's lists. The big difference from other random runs is that most random events will affect one team at a time, and not just random individuals.

Basically I'll roll to see which team get affected by the event, and, if the event targets an individual, I'll roll again to see which member of that team gets the event. The events are completely random, so they could help, hurt, or do absolutely nothing. I also won't be interacting with the creatures during the run, except to do whatever the random event says and maybe breaking up any slap fights.

Each team is competing to see who can survive the longest and who has the most babies. The winning teams doesn't get a prize, but all of the babies and the original creatures, will be uploaded to Creatures Caves after the run is over. Any gaps on the teams will be filled by me, though hopefully I won't have to!

The run will start whenever the CCSF starts, and it will end when all of the submitted creatures die. It will also be streamed on Twitch. The stream should start around 4pm CST and will go on for an hour. There won't be any voice commentary, but I will be in the twitch chat (and possibly CChat?) I'll be saving the videos for each day and posting a daily recap of what random events happened and if anyone died. So everyone can catch up on what happened to their creature if they miss a stream.

Submitting your creature is pretty easy and what kind of creature you submit determines which team you are on. If you submit a Norn, then your on the Norn team. If you submit a Grendel, then your on the Grendel team and so on. Once you have your creature, send your creature to kittytikara(at)yahoo(dot)com and it will be added to the team. If you don't have a creature to submit then either reply here or email me what species you want, what breeds/sprites it should use, and what color, what gender, and what name you want.

There are a few rules to, hopefully, keep things a bit fair and give everyone a chance to get on the team they want:

* 1 creature per person
* No immortals, super breeders, violent creatures, or geats
* Maximum of 12 creature per team
* Send the creature to kittytikara(at)yahoo(dot)com
* If you don't have a creature to submit then reply here or email me with what species, sprites, color, gender, and name you want and I'll make one for you.

Can you make me a female purple Hardman Norn and name her Violent Violet, please? :D

She's been created! She isn't a true Hardman Norn, but she should hit toys and critters when bored.

Could I have a female magma norn (if you can, magma-bondi splice with magma head :) ), named Lomadia?

How about Arjagge for me?

EDIT: Just a note: he ages a bit more slowly than normal creatures, but he isn't immortal.

I'm curious, how well do colourtrues breed with non-colourtrues? I remember reading stuff about slider problems.

Sliders aren't that common, but they do happen. There are only about a dozen genes or so moved around, so if you're lucky, you won't have any problems.

Could I get a blue-grey Ettin female, maybe with less gadget-centric instincts if possible? Name her Tinker. c:

C1anddsaddict, I'd like to add your creature, but his download appears to be empty for me.

Tinker and True Rose have been created! Both of them have been edited to, hopefully, be less obsessed with gadgets and True Rose is slightly carnivorous. I figure it was fitting considering True Rose has Chameleon sprites.

If you need more entrants to make up the numbers, I'll take a pink female Ettin named Evangeline, please! I really don't mind what breed she is, I'll leave that up to you. :)

Do you know what time the stream starts in GMT?

That's mostly what I want, some creatures to fill up the empty Grendel and Ettin teams. Having half the other teams be my own creatures isn't very interesting. The stream starts at 10pm GMT, and I think I'll add that to the news post.

Also Evangeline is a pretty pink Sea Ettin. She's amphibious and is slightly more carnivorous.

Could I request a dark purple boney grendel named Riptide? Gender doesn't matter. Amphibious, flowers have a calming effect, & a taste for critters & fruit would be nice if possible.

I was very tempted to request a neko ettin instead. [ntongue]

Riptide has been created. He's amphibious, finds flowers and plants calming when pushed, is calmed by the smell of flowers, and prefers critters and fruit over seeds and food.

The stream has ended for today, and the highlight can be found here. The two random events were Misplaced Christmas Present and Temporary Banishment. Misplaced Christmas Present put a few random agents in the Meso and Temporary banishment would have moved any creatures in the Meso back into the run. Both events were pretty useless. Evangeline died and 14 babies were born. Most of the babies were from Samia, Ziggy Stardust, or Riptide.

Also I was typing which events happened in the chat, but I don't think it went through. Hopefully I can fix the internet issues before tomorrow.

Day 2's highlight can be found here. The two random events were trading places and splice experiment. All Trading Spaces did was swap two creatures next to each other, but Splice Experiment created a random baby from Ziggy Stardust and Lomadia. 22 babies were born today, which brings the total to 36. It's insane.

Currently the Grendels are winning the baby part of the run. They've had 19 babies and the Norns have had 17. The Ettins are down 1 member and have had no babies. The season has changed from summer to autumn though, and the stream ended with 3 of the Norns still in the summer area.

That love triangle between Ziggy, Milly and Violet, the abusive relationship between Dilo and Sara (when all Dilo wanted was to be with Riptide! Forbidden love...), and all those slider and right-walker babies born to the Grendels...

Felt a little like I was watching a soap opera :P

Do Harlequin norn females usually behave like Sara?
I am shocked. ^^
Soap opera indeed.

Day 3's highlight can be found here. The two random events were Regroup and Heal the Sick. Regroup moves a random team into the Meso, and the randomly selected team was Team Norn. Heal the Sick would move the most miserable member of a randomly selected team to a better location, but Team Norn was selected again. So it did nothing.

11 babies were born, most of which were grendels. Roy died of starvation. That leaves Team Grendel and Team Ettin down a member, with Team Norn still doing fine. Also some of the grendels and Vansu have gotten old.

Edit: Also I'm probably going to turn creature voices off and play some music. The "I love/hate whoever" loops were getting really annoying.

It's a shame that my pink Grendel couldn't find his way down, or wouldn't get up anymore. ( Looks like eat elevator to me? :< )

Thanks for letting him take part though!

I'm pretty sure Roy had eat elevator and your welcome! Day 4's highlights can be found here. Today's events were Critter Contribution and Critter Cataclysm. Both events canceled each other out. So I added balloon pigeons for one event and removed them for the next event.

Samia died of old age and 14 babies were born, which were split evenly between the Norns and Grendels. Team Grendel is down two members, but everyone is in the old or ancient stage. So tomorrow will be the last stream.

I'm proud of Dilo, even with living far longer than everyone else he never forgot how to look after himself. :)

I don't think Lomadia had a single natural offspring.

Lomadia's baby was exported almost immediately, so who knows how well it will do. Also she had one other baby, amazingly with the same Norn.

Thank you to everyone who submitted/requested a Norn or watched the stream! This is has been a lot of fun and I think I'll try something like this again.

The highlights for day 5 can be found here. Dilo lived the longest so Team Norn won the first part of the challenge. The second part, who had the most babies, is... a tie between Team Grendel and Team Norn! Milly managed to have 7 babies today, and that's what tied them up. Otherwise the Grendels would have won the second part. Also the submitted Creatures, minus the filler creatures, and their babies will be uploaded in a few minutes.

Partially unrelated, but how do you make a seasonal Wolfling Run?

If you have the garden box, you can set the patch plants to only grow during a certain season, forcing creatures to migrate to find food.
