You turn the light on and look over the Playground.
It’s been a day or so since you built it, since you’re pretty nervous about using it.
It’s about time you start, though.



You have:
  • A Common Clovette
  • A few other Clovettes and other saplings, almost done growing
  • A LOT of different seeds in stasis
  • Red, Green, Blue, and Gold extracts
  • A single assistant (currently out on an errand)
  • Enough syringes and cotton swabs to last a lifetime… or maybe just a month of nonstop experiments. You won’t need more for a while.

… The first thing you need to do is place the Clovette in the Playground. But you’re still nervous, and you’re not sure what tests you want to start with.

THROW ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU HAVE AT ONE CLOVETTE.
SEEDS? FEED THEM TO THE CLOVETTE.
EXTRACTS? FEED THEM TO THE CLOVETTE.
WEAK BABY CLOVETTES? FEED THEM TO THE CLOVETTE.
LAB ASSISTANT? YOU BETTER BELIEVE YOU'RE FEEDING THAT INTERN TO THE PLANT GOD.

Oh, the first Clovette is already grown and ready for testing. You suppose that’s a good sign already; you never really considered yourself much of a gardener.

You believe you watered the Clovette earlier, but it wouldn’t hurt to gently introduce it to the Playground’s water supply.

Shortly after being placed in the shallow water, the Clovette walks to the shore of the pond and sits down to dry.

It seems the Playground is not an alarming environment to this creature.

You assume they taste strongly of the materials you procured the extracts from - the earthy taste of Breadcap, the sweet-sour taste of Denmelon, the cloying sweet taste of Hornpansy, and the numbingly-bitter taste of Prickleberry - but you really, really don’t want to eat these extracts. You didn’t make these for culinary use.

Okay, more accurately:
  • 5 doses each of Red, Green, Blue, and Gold extracts.
  • A couple hundred syringes for internal extract application, and a higher count of cotton swabs for external application.
  • A fridge full of imported plants - namely, the ones mentioned above
  • An extraction machine, for use with those imported plants
  • A whole lot of extra Clovettes and other creatures, growing but not yet matured, though two are almost ready.

You decide to try applying a single dose of Red extract to the Clovette, with a swab. The Clovette wiggles away, moving to a different side of the Playground.

You sit back and jot down some notes, and after about 15 minutes, you notice…

The Clovette has wilted a bit. This is what you expected of the Red extract, though it took effect alarmingly quickly.

You take note of the effect in your notebook.

You hear a brief alarm buzz elsewhere in your lab, notifying you that some of your saplings have matured and are ready for testing. You can now add another Clovette, or a Flysnap, to the Playground.

Make a note to dilute any extracts you use in the future. 

Recall memory or consult a source for methods to restore vitality to clovettes. It seems we had expectations going into this of what a red extract would do; what are some other expectations we have for this experiment?
