I have been thinking about this a lot since the poll yesterday, and came to the conclusion…why not add all of them( except zombies )? Obviously I am not saying all of this content should come at all at once, and it could easily be structured into different patches. These are just ideas, but I’ll explain in a little more detail and do so in an enjoyable read. Hope y’all like it! XD

After the major nuclear disasters hit the island, both Humans and Animals alike became susceptible to this grotesque mutations. Through this research we have discovered that not only can the mutation affect all forms of life, but can affect the same life forms differently. Our study has found a pattern in the mutation, and how it is spread across the different species that are present on the island. The pattern that has been found is easily noticed when looking at the issues as a whole, instead on a species by species bases. All of the life forms show 3 distinct mutations, and could be generalized throughout various species with 3 different terms.
The first mutation, which seems the most common, could be coined the melee mutation. Changes show enhanced close quarter combat, as the mutation seems to effect the hands, claws, horns, and beaks of each species respectively. The increased muscle max, and density of these extremities show that while vulnerable from a distant, these life forms can quickly become extremely dangerous when meet within melee distance. This is made even more deadly by the fact these life forms also show increased attributes in their stamina, speed, and jumping abilities.
The second mutation, which is the second most common, is easily defined as a ranged mutation. Though the projectile is different among the species, what they hold in common is their ability to inflict heavy amounts of damage from afar. The different projectiles ranged from acidic vomit seen in the human mutation, to arrow like quails from the chicken mutation. While easily controllable when few in number, the situation changes if found in a horde, I advise extreme caution.
The third and final term to be defined is the most complex. Each species seems to have an exclusive ability when this mutation variant is visible. This was the hardest term to define, since each mutation is unique to each species alone. In example Bears seem to not only absorb other species, but then gain attributes from them, leading to the multiple possible outcomes. The human mutation seems to effect the brain, and the cognitive partly restored, as seen in the ability for these creatures to use weapons and tools found from presumably people they have killed. The deer showing this special mutation have only ever been seen to come out after the sun is past the horizon. The have shown the ability to teleport short distances, giving them the ability to quickly appear and disappear, seemingly from no where. We have yet to see a wolf within this category, but we have heard reports of howls before deaths, but little or no trace of these beasts have been found afterwards. We are still looking for examples of this mutation in chickens and rabbits, but have yet to be found, if they even exist at all.

Today we found something we never thought possible. While securing an area of the island, we came across what seems to be some type of metal vault, quite by accident, but I have this feeling, almost as if we were supposed to find it. Unsure of what we had found, we took an excessive amount of time gaining access into this vault, making sure we had a defensive line setup encase something hostile came through that door. We had never imagined what would be hiding behind the door, and if we had known the secrets of that door, it would have remained shut. These beasts should have been long dead, and to think on this day we become the first humans to see Dinosaurs in a very long time. All the different species didn’t even seem to attack each other, but quickly over ran our defensive line. It seemed that bullets bounced off their thick hide, and in retrospective we should have had many more men and heavy weapons in order to stop what we have bought unto the island. None have dared to proceed any further into the vault, no matter the bonus payment offered. We are going need a lot more equipment before we can dive deeper into this vault and mystery. The thing I find the most interesting about the Dinosaurs, is they seem to be immune to radiation as well as mutation.

With all of the danger abound of this island, and all the men we have lost to them, we sent in a request to HQ for backup. When the calvary arrived, we didn’t expect this is what they would be sending us robots. What they lack in sociability, they make up for in usefulness. I suspect that finding men to come to the island has been a difficult task after the reports of what has happened to this island have got out. I am sure glad to have these machines keeping watch, as they are not prone to exhaustion as we humans are. For the first time in a while I actually feel safe.
The robots are turning against us, repeat the robots sent have turned against us. Please send backup admittedly. We are held up in the Charlie compound. Please shut these machines down. How Copy? How Copy?

There is no way off this island. We have looked, and by calculating the amount of time it took to got here, even make shift boat would do us no good. Why has HQ abandon us? Are the communication out, or is this intentional? We may never known. All of the men brought here as military support have all but deserted their posts. Some have even taken over the other posts, hostile to anything or anyone that is not in their group. I suspect that they may have control over most of the resources brought to the island by us. It is as if they have been driven mad with fear. Is there any hope left?

Am I losing my mind? I am seeing shadows that shouldn’t be there. I hear noise right in front of me, but I see nothing. I don’t know if its the lack of food or the little something I ate was bad, but I swear I saw a humanoid creature almost as big as a mountain. Weird sightings of unknown creatures have been reported from multiple areas of the map. One of the scientists, who must be suffering from the seemingly same illusions that I have been. He said he saw a horse today, but instead of a normal head, swears it had the torso of a human. WHAT IS GOING ON?

Am I in hell? If everything that has happened is not enough, today I saw multiple UFO’s in the skies surrounding the island. At first I thought the approaching lights was rescue, but these vehicles are moving unlike anything I have seen before. Is this a sick joke? Am I going insane? I saw a pig float up into the sky, and them seemingly disappear into nothing. To make things worse I had the craziest dream in my life last night. I am not even sure to be honest whether it was a dream or reality, but believing the later makes me at least feel better. In my dream I saw multiple beings approaching me. The light behind them was so intense I could not make out any detail, but I am absolutely positive, they were not human. They spoke to me directly through my mind, but could not comprehend everything the said. All I heard for certain was these 3 words, “We are watching.”
