A few hundred thousand years ago, your kind crawled out of the primordial ooze.
Until recently, you and your people were little more than mindless beasts, fighting each other for survival.
Soon, though, you began to realize that things would work better if everyone cooperated.
Our story begins shortly after this realization. You, my loyal players, will control these individuals. Think of yourselves as a benevolent god, leading the populace with a gentle hand. Think of yourself as some omnipresent dictator. I don't care! WHO you are won't affect the game. Your choices will!
I have a few requests for you all, in order to keep things running smoothly.
1) If you are giving your vote on a course of action, only vote once. Edit your vote post if you change your mind! Also, vote in Red
2) There will be chances for you to give your own ideas, in case you don't like any of the options presented. I can't think of every eventuality by any means. Do this in Green
3) Need clarification? Use orange
Now, here is the whole world! (What you know of, at least)
Pick an Island! (L, R)
and a location on that island to start (N, S)
And your choice of general critter type.

After that, you must choose how you want to be oriented:

's game due to the fact that they're good and I couldn't think of different ones)
