Sapiens – Basic Sapien Guide (Age and Traits)

A sapien is a human that lives in the game. These sapiens make up your tribe and do the work that the tribe needs.

Age

Each sapien has an age associated with it, representing its current stage of life. This can be viewed in the tribe window, listing the sapiens of the tribe, or by directly clicking on the sapien. There are 4 primary stages of life of a sapien. A sapien’s age is counted by days.

Baby

For a short time after birth (1 day), a sapien will be carried by its mother, shown by the mother’s status of “carrying baby”, which prevents skills which require heavy lifting from being performed.

Child

After growing up from being a baby, a sapien will be independent, and a child, until age 11 (10 days after becoming a child). Children are distinguishable from their small size, and they function mostly as an adult sapien, although they are unable to perform skills which require heavy lifting, and are unable to become pregnant or carry a baby.

Adult

During this phase of life, which makes up the majority of the lifespan of a sapien (40 days, age 11 to age 50), a sapien can perform all tasks, provided it is not carrying a baby or pregnant, both of which prevent skills which require heavy lifting from being performed. It can also become pregnant and have children if it is female.

Elderly

Elderly sapiens (age 51 to 60) will be unable to perform tasks which require heavy lifting, and cannot get pregnant or have children (please confirm). They will have gray hair, and require more rest, and get overworked and fatigued more easily.

Death

All sapiens die eventually. For a full list of details, see the page on death
