The drooliepoolies successfully colonized space, and one of the planets they discovered is now open for visitors!

8779


On this planet live IMAGIMOTHS, strange creatures that have evolved to look like ghosts so that they can easily scare away predators. Imagimoths are communal creatures that live in FIELDS of 16 imagimoths. The imagimoths that live at the corners are special guardians of their pack, and they are willing to work with us humans to better their species. It seems like they really do need help, because the current imagimoths have been inbreeding too much and are a bit sickly.

Drooliepoolie sociologists have heard rumors that Imagimoths believe in a prophecy: that one day, an imagimoth will be born that can control the elements of earth, air, water, and fire. This imagimoth is known as the MOTHATAR, and it's appearance heralds an age of prosperity.

Imagimoths have over 40 genes, stored in their QR Code. Feel free to try and decode this genetic string, and share your findings here. Will you choose to try and breed the Mothatar, or do you maybe just want a pretty or cool looking moth? It's up to you!

FAN ART:

FAN PROGRAMS:
I created a Git repository which represents the family tree of these moths.
Where breeding is representing by branching and merging,
each moth is represented by a single Git branch with a single commit containing:
the picture, the QR code, the gene data decoded from QR code.
(click here for more info)

Below is an imagimoth FIELD. Feel free to adopt any of the unowned imagimoths at the CORNERS. You only get to own one!!!

After you adopt a moth, you can take a TURN. Please only submit 1 turn at a time (wait until I update the playing field before adding additional turns), and don't take more than 1 turn in a row (let others have a chance to play). ((If timezone issues are preventing you from playing, please just ask politely to have dibs on the next turn.))

TURN GAMEPLAY
Choose one of the following actions:
  • ADOPT: Join the game and adopt any of the corner moths. This is now your active, owned moth, and it cannot pass away. (You may put your owned moth in your signature, if you wish, but this will not affect gameplay.)
  • SWAP: Swap your imagimoth with any imagimoth in a space touching yours (including diagonally). This will be your new owned moth, and the old one may end up passing away, so be careful not to swap away a moth you really love.
  • MATE: Cross your moth's genes with any of the other 3 CORNER MOTHS (imagimoths do not have biological sexes, so they can breed with any other moth). When you do, the 2 moths between the mating moths will pass on, and the offspring will take their place. The offspring's genes will be based on their parents' genes, and mutations are possible.
  • MIGRATE: When there is more than 1 field (A.K.A. more than 4 players) you may swap from one field to another. Please specify which corner you wish to settle in, and the previous inhabitant will take your old spot in the other field.
Here is field #1!!!

When I saw myself mentioned in the game thread I thought that you are calling me specifically to join the game.

Ok, I can do it.
I'll take the last available one, and call him Bmon, the first.

And then I will wait until tomorrow to see what happens while I'm asleep.

Your Imagimoth can only breed with other corner Imagimoths! The ones in the middle can only be swapped with, if adjacent to your own.

At this moment I would like to make my next turn but Oegyein's action is not yet recognised by the game board.
However whatever the outcome is, it can't have any influence on any next move I can now make.

So I politely ask that after evaluating Oegyein's turn, immediately my action will be a diagonal SWAP.
Bmon, the first will leave the position and give the place to Bmon, the next.
