This article offers a guideline for adding facility specimens, but it's only a guideline! You can add segments, remove them, change the order, or fully change the format as needed! It's not strict. You definitely don't need to do fill out all of them!



--Designation: This is where you would write the species' name! For Undergrowth's records, their definition of "species" is a little broad, and any entity capable of self replication is listed as a species with a taxonomic designation. (Often in latin or greek, unless a non-human species has already named it.) This means that their definition of species could include artificial, █████████, or supernatural beings!

--Clearance: This is the clearance level required to access the information, the level of security placed on the species, and the physical "level" in the facility where it's stored. It ranges from 1-5 where Level 1 specimens are of minimum concern and may even be allowed to roam the facility relatively unhindered, and specimens on level 5 pose a mass extinction level threat to the biosphere.

--Status: This may show if a specimen is contained or not.

--Response: This is a quick reference for what level of force should be used in as few words as possible, and it's always capitalized. Two common examples are NON-LETHAL and LETHAL FORCE.

--Classes: Generally this area has short tags and other quick details! Not a paragraph, but a few words like "homoanalogia" or "latexphera."



--Eco Threat:

--Hominid Threat:



This information helps drones and facility staff identify the specimen, so it's generally comprised of superficial descriptions, and doesn't contain any information on how the specimen works.


This is where the nitty gritty of the specimen's biology is explored. It can be used to talk about it's behaviors, what it's capable of, and how to contain it if it should prove a threat.


(Optional.) If you want to detail their enclosure!


(Optional.) This is the threat that the specimen poses to the biosphere at large if it is allowed to roam free! It's sometimes used to detail possible scenarios in the event of a containment breach.


(Optional.) This is where you log various tests. It has some heavy overlap with utilization.


(Optional.) And this is how the Undergrowth Foundation uses or studies them, if at all.



This is what's become of the specimen after the collapse of all Undergrowth facilities. That is, if they've been found by Delver explorers at all! Some are never recovered, some are told of only in rumors by the facility's denizens, and others are avoided at all costs. This is a fantastic opportunity for stories from the Delver's perspective, and great place to show how specimens have changed in the intervening years.
