In the year 3096 humanity left earth forever, much of its history lost due to wars and disaster.
The only leftovers were seized by the last human government—
The Dimiran Empire, formed from the weatlhiest and most advanced conglomerates on the planet.
They quickly colonized seven new homeplanets, each one headed by a different company and humans began to prosper once again.
Now, in the year 5247 the empire thrives on nine planets, but within the last ten years a new form of "entertainment" has shown up within the empire.
Under the guise of scientific study, the government has gathered criminals, slaves, debtors, or contracted individuals to help study the ecosystems of foreign planets.
Those in the experiment are genetically altered to become humanoid monsters with traits similar to animals from earth.
They are then sent to varying planets where they must adapt to survive.
Their struggles are watched through constant livestreams for entertainment.
Unfortunately, you are one these experiments.
Sorry for this.
The premise for this roleplay is that you are a human from one of the nine homeplanets who, due to varying circumstances, are inducted into the experiment, becoming mutated and left to survive in an alien ecosystem. You go through growth spurts to gain adaptations, or improve/modify existing ones. You get to choose the planet you wish to land on, but the landing pods aren't stable so where you land on the planet will be random.

[attr="class","p_content"]Food, water, and energy—these three essential resources guarantee the player's survival. The requirements for minimum sustenance fluctuate depending on the player's base monster to reflect how some animals require more resources than others. Players receive bonus resources if they are well-suited to the source of the resource (e.g., a carnivore-based character may receive extra resources from eating meat). Staff will inform the player the number of resources gained for an action.
Each resource has three values: the bare minimum, the bare essentials, and the maximum. The bare minimum is the number of resources each character starts with per thread (unless a previous thread is linked indicating other circumstances). The bare essentials are the minimum amount of a resource required before players suffer from sleep deprivation, starvation, dehydration, etc. The maximum is the amount of resource a player may have before incurring health hazards.
[attr="class","p_content"] Water | An essential resource. Bodies of water may not always be available, however. Players will have to collect water from rainfall, mist, plants holding water, etc. Beware toxic chemicals or deadly bacteria murky water may contain.
Dehydration - When lacking the minimum amount of water, the state of dehydration is inflicted. Every three posts, the player drops a health status by one. Vision will be out of focus, and they will feel drowsy.
Hyponatremia - When exceeding the maximum amount of water, hyponatremia will be inflicted. Symptoms of nausea, headache, and fatigue will occur. Every three posts, the player's health will drop by one status.
Food | All living organisms require nutrients—gained by either consuming other organisms or producing their own via intaking chemicals. The character's diet and species determine their specialization—the source of food which gives a bonus. However, a character's diet may adapt and change during roleplaying. Please note that you may only switch diets during growth spurts.
Starvation - When beneath the minimum food quota, inflicts starvation. Acute pain occurs in the stomach area. Every four posts, health drops by one status.
Severe Bloating - Exceeding the maximum food limit triggers severe bloating. Lethargia and swelling pain in stomach area will occur. Inflicts a drop of one health status per four posts.
Energy | Energy is gained through a combination of rest and food. Players may fill themselves with energy or keep it in reserves. Energy reserves are determined by food vitals, shelter, and other factors such as migration.
Exhaustion - Going beneath the minimum energy threshold causes exhaustion. Extreme fatigue and dizziness may occur. For every six posts, one status of health drops.
Hyperactivity - Gaining energy exceeding maximum reserves will cause hyperactivity. Jitteriness, distraction, and loss of control over movements (such as hitting something harder than intended) may occur. For every six posts, one status of health drops.
[attr="class","p_content"]In resource threads, the goal of the player is to secure resources and their sources. At the end of every resource thread, the character's vitality card will be updated to reflect the results (good or bad). All new characters must perform a resource thread as they will not have much to begin with when they land. Players may have a maximum of three resource threads at the same time per character. They are not considered completed until the vitality card has been updated.
