Spawn - a neighbor that spawns in a location is added to that loctation when that location is scouted by an Organ in the ocellus state and the other conditions for spawning are met.

Spawn - a neighbor that spawns in a location is added to that location when that location is scouted by an Organ in the ocellus state (and that location scouted isn’t named “Foggy Location”, nor was it named such immediately prior to the scouting) and the other conditions for spawning are met.

What would you do to flavor it?

I editted out the comment before seeing your comment here, sorry (it mentioned that I would be in favor of a better themed and more appropriate creature-spawning mechanic). I don’t know how I would flavor it, honestly. I’m open to ideas though.

I also dislike that an action you can do for free (scouting) can destroy something so difficult to make (egg clusters, especially fertilized ones).

I think this is upside down. With this change they can be generated “as a free action”, but are not generated when the location is first scouted.

I think ideal behavior would be they appear only when scouting a foggy location (or location named foggy immediately prior to scouting), and no other time—- the exact opposite of this current proposal. Retroactively adding neighbors to the appropriate locations would be nice as well. Grandfathering in a location may be appropriate as well—but not a vent or brine pool.

I would like to vote deferential on this, but I don’t think I can do that during a Hiatus, since that provision is under the Proposals rule and not the Votable Matters rule.

I don’t like that this would require two daily actions for neighbors to spawn. If it were possible to activate the ocellus twice in a day, I might have voted differential. against
