    Re: The New Romverse (Post-Crisis New 52 Ultimate Animated Relaunch Edition)

    And now, to start off the Year, an Anthropology Video:

    A Screen flickers to life, showing a desk in front of a black board. Behind the desk, a Mature, grey-haired Rabbit male with classes checks some papers, adjusting his glasses as he looks at the camera. “Ah, hello. Today, in this video, we'll be going into the basics on the evolution of Anthro-kind, and our relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom.”

    The Rabbit gets up and spins the blackboard around, showing pre-made chalk drawings showing a hominid skeleton alongside skeletons of a primitive anthro felinoid. “Now, as you may already know, the earliest fossil records discovered by anthropologists of sapient beings have revealed that our earliest ancestors all descended from proto-simian mammals, before an event now known as 'the great mutation', where it is believed external environmental stresses triggered dormant metagenetic traits hidden within the hominid genome.” He points to the proto-felinoid with a laser pointer. “These led to mutations within new generations of hominids, who developped physical traits based on the wildlife within their environments.

    The rabbit turns the board again, and this time the formerly blank side now shows a map of the world, with migration lines on it. “As the hominids and their mutant brethren spread across the Earth's surface, they came into contact with new animal species, and acquired further mutations. “ The camera follows the pointer to another board, one showing a rendition of a hominid hunting a deer with a spear, alongside an early wolf anthro hunting with a knife and his teeth. Another picture shows another hominid picking berries, while a stag anthro is eating the leaves alongside the berries. “While both anthros and hominids could use intelligence and tool-creation for survival and influencing their environments, the anthros also had their atavistic traits giving them more options for survival, either in advantages for hunting, or for greater foraging options. As both subspecies were still genetically compatible, it didn't take long for the mutants to outpace their cousins, and slowly absorb the last few hominids into their numbers. It is now believed Anthro Simians are the last people most closely resembling our earliest hominid ancestors.”

    The scene cuts to show the rabbit in front of another chalkboard, this one showing two Earths. “But we've also discovered that there are many alternate Earths where the Great Mutation never occured, or simply occured differently then on ours.“ The rabbit pulls up a of picture showing a statue of liberty shaped like a human woman rather then a female cow, followed by a picture of a crowd of humans. “Interestingly, in most of the ones we've found, Anthros are a rarety, and Hominids make up the sole sapient species. ...You'd assume this would prevent inter-species violence, but it seems that hominid-on-hominid violence is plentiful on its own despite the lack of great physical differences.”



    We shall pause the video here, as I intend to rework some old illustrations for the next part.

    What I love about this bit is it realizes that if humans had some special bio-thingy throughout their history it would have done something big at somepoint in the Ancient Past because biology be random, yo.

    A great many people need to be made away of the hypothesis of Dunbar's number -- or, as I like to call it, the Monkey Limit -- and the idea that humans can only hold so many people in their "group" before they really don't care what happens to you, whether you look like them or not.

    Looking at that Anthropology post, I'm now wondering what an anthro's diet is like. Are they omnivorous, or do they have particular preferences and/or requirements?

    Well, so far my group and I have roleplayed special preferences (the rabbit having a vegetarian diet, and the frog eating bugs), but I'm keeping my options open. Mayne Anthros are omnivore, but driven to prefer a certain diet.

    Anyways, for this Update, I decided to recycle some old visual aids of mine.




    Not illustrated here: Pokemon Anthros, Digimon, and various Aliens. The Pokemon will actually serve as my setting's "Inhumans", being the parallel humanoid race native to Earth. I'll come back to revisit specific species entries later.

    I think some of that text is out of date, considering you now have the origin of anthros as being evolved from humans.

    Also why wouldn't marsupials be considered mammals?

    Also, Photobucket now requires $400 a year to allow external linkage, hence why I can't see those pictures.

    postimages.org still allows it for free.

    Huh: I can.

    Still might be a good idea to move it.

    Sorry, I basically redid some old pictures to save time. And at the time, I was unsure where marsupials were on the whole mammal listings.

    Thanks for the heads up, altered the hosting.

    Yes, I am in fact rather sure I asked that exact same question back when you first posted that.
