Why howdy, rancher number . This your first time on the far, far range? Let me introduce myself and the terrain, then.
PLORT is a fanlisting dedicated to the game Slime Rancher, where the player takes up the mantle of Beatrix LeBeau, a greenhorne out on her lonesome on a distant world populated by slimes.
What are slimes?
What is a fanlisting?
Keep reading, rancher - and if you like, or if you know the answer to those questions already, please join PLORT, as it is a listing of fans of this particular project approved by The Fanlisting Network.
Slime Rancher is a PC and console game released into 2017 where one does, indeed, ranch slimes. What this amounts to is venturing from your homestead each day with a vacpack and jetpack to guard you against the perils of a foreign world. Playing as Beatrix Lebeau, you'll suck up wandering slimes and bring them home to high-tech corrals, feeding them flora or fauna in the hopes of procuring plorts — their highly scientifically interesting excrement. Should a slime imbibe another species' plort, they will change irrevocably. If this is their first encounter, they will become a hybrid, called a largo; if it is their second, they morph into a monstrosity known as a tarr that preys on surrounding slimes, combated only by spurt of water.
It's a curious world, the far far range. Though you'll have no direct contact with any other person — excepting perhaps the loving letters send by Beatrix's romantic partner, Casey, alluding to their former life together — there are hints of a former civilization that worshipped the bizarre and endearing slimes that roamed its surface, both surprisingly resilient and fragile. Slimes literally pop from the earth at certain intervals, grouped roughly by ecosystem; as they are usually in crowds of at least three species, trouble starts, so a tarr devours the population, and then they pop out anew.
A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not only) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting fans across the globe.
This site runs on a version of Enthusiast 3 heavily edited with input from Masao, made with images directly from the official art of the game and handholding from Larissa. All fonts are available through the Google Fonts open source project. The modal functions are all through Fancybox 3.0. Note that Slime Rancher is of course the property of Monami Park, as are the pieces of official art used throughout; this site was made to demonstrate love, not claim ownership.
