Species in After Reset RPG: Part IV. Plants.
In this news we proceed sharing game lore about the species of the After Reset world. This news is dedicated to Plants.
Beyond that, if you've just joined to our daily news stream, you can find previous data about other species at these links:
Species in After Reset RPG: Part I. Humans.
Species in After Reset RPG: Part II. Animals.
Species in After Reset RPG: Part III. Insects.
A species is one of the basic units of biological classification and a taxonomic rank. A species is often defined as the largest group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Due to storyline limitations, you can choose only Human species for your character in After Reset RPG's single-player mode. Despite that, you will meet a variety of other species during your adventure in the world of the game.
Plants are the most widespread living multicellular organisms in the world after the Reset. They form a clade that includes the flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms, ferns, club mosses, hornworts, liverworts and mosses - as well as, depending on definition, the algae, etc.
Before the Reset green plants were the dominant part of the flora. Such type of plants has cell walls with cellulose and characteristically obtains most of their energy from sunlight via photosynthesis using chlorophyll contained in chloroplasts, which gives it its green color. Some plants were parasitic and have lost the ability to produce normal amounts of chlorophyll or to photosynthesize.
During the first decades after the apocalypse, when the green plants were dying off in huge numbers, that last group of flora took advantage of the opportunity to spread among the subterranean regions - developing its ability to gain required energy and substances from sources other than sunlight and water. The largest accumulations of these plants are usually spotted close to Red Zones - which keeps the question of alien terramorphing's effects on Earth open.

That is all for today, I hope you've enjoyed reading that lore.
There other parts of the lore about species is coming (Synthetics, Biomass, Incorporeals). And according to our tradition, after the end of that small series we'll put those pretty concept arts in HD available to our backers exclusively.
Btw, who can say what plants are depicted in our concept art and why they are dangerous?)
