ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
What are some stories about the diplodocus? Memorable diplodocus stories, wild encounters, and fan fiction.
Whew! We’re finally here! I like writing this and all, but these last chapters have been hard since I haven’t had much time on my hands the past week. Also a little boring. But still super important to the story—it gets much more interesting now!
As the four carnivores walked through the deep forest of Runheimr, every stick and stone seemed filled with life. Ever step, every tail flick, and bushes rustled, trees shook, and lumpy shadows scurried out of sight as multiple creatures watched them curiously.
We’re being follower, Forest thought.
Crimson groaned, throwing her head back. She whirled around to glare at a young Microraptor who had been watching her for the past few minutes. “DO YOU NOT HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO??” She demanded, making him jump.
“This is their territory,” Spark said as the Microraptor flung himself higher up into the trees to hide. “they’re all wondering why we’re here, and what we want.”
Scowling, Crimson lifted her head to all the shadows around them. “We have BUSINESS TO ATTEND TO, LIKE EVERY SINGLE CARNIVORE,” She roared. “Hm? Now go AWAY!”
Rust rubbed his temples. “Jeeze, Crimson,” he muttered.
Several creatures leaped through the trees and bushes, leaving, but a few of them stayed, finding better hiding spots and keeping their distance from Crimson.
“Every creature in the forest is gonna know we’re here,” Forest murmured, slowing his pace to glance around at the hidden figures. “Even the Terror birds.”
“Let’s hope not,” Spark said with a worried look. “I don’t think they’d like a bunch of carnivores sucking up all the attention when they’re around. Maybe we should find a more secluded spot.”
“It is getting dark,” Rust observed.
“Where are we gonna sleep?” Crimson asked.
“Maybe we could find a cave?” Forest suggested. He turned to the hidden shadows behind them. “Anyone know where we could get some sleep?”
No answer. A few shaking bushes and claws scrabbling on rock, but nobody spoke.
“Hmph,” Crimson grunted. “Guess we’ll have to find one ourselves.”
Forest lifted the sack from his shoulder and opened it to pull out Needles map. He sat down and unrolled it on the Forest floor, hoping for clues. “Hmmm. I don’t see anything.”
“Maybe there are no caves in Runheimr,” Spark supplied.
“I don’t know,” Forest said slowly.
Suddenly, inside the bag, a bright light ebbed through the opening. He squinted and reached inside.
It was the rune. It was glowing brighter than before. “What the…?” He held it out to see.
“Woah,” Spark said, the green light reflected in her eyes.
“Why is it doing that?” Rust asked.
Forest opened his mouth, but before he could say, “I have no idea,” one of the bushes shook from his left.
And as he turned his head, a small, pale creature leapt from its branches, slipped under Forests talons, and snatched the rune from his claws.
This one time when I was a noob I was just running around when I found a diplo and it was passive tame and the tiem when I was a noob I knew about passive tame so I tamed it and it took a long time and I named him dave then after a little bit me and himself died by a pack of raptors it’s just the fact it was 2 years ago and I still know it
When I first started the game I was not really playing I was just running around exporting and dying every second but these guys would be like pretty much everywhere so being new I did not know like they are aggressive has f so I would hit them and have them chase me FOR FUN now I am scared bc I don’t wanna die bc I got like tons of animals all around
I was just walking around not far from my base when I see a diplo without noticing the cliff it’s coincidentally standing by. As I’m looking at it I think: why not, I have the food, I’ll just tame it. So I go over to it getting ready to tame it and I notice something...
First, It’s already tamed.
Second, it has a saddle.
Third, there is a player in the saddle.
And fourth, there is this mischievous vibe to the player, as if he sat there on his diplo next to the cliff on purpose just to troll people who were playing ark when they know they should probably be getting some sleep instead. Well... that’s exactly what the case was, I looked up at him pleadingly but he had no mercy and in a second I was yeeted off the cliff. BUT I HIT A TREE AND DIDNT DIE. So naturally since I was close to my base and wasn’t going to stand for that injustice I ran over there, grabbed my army of dimorphodons, and all he heard was a whistle before he got swarmed by my army of flying demons. I laughed evilly as I watched that frekker get ripped to shreds.
Oh and I found his base shortly after, but I wasn’t so cruel as to raid him. I was WAY worse. Instead, I left some of the meat from his diplo on his doorstep, knocked on the door and ran. What? I had already cooked it for him.
I was out Raptor hunting when I came across a Diplo that seemed to have appeared right next to me out of nowhere. For a moment I think it’s a Bronto, but I quickly realise that it’s a little small for that, so I go over to check what it is. “Diplodocus” is what appears, much to my delight. I’m about to let it be and continue my hunt when I notice it walking towards me. A little cautious, as I am with any Dino I haven’t encountered before (I’m a noob) I walk to the side to try and see if it’s following me or if it’s just a coincidence. Nope, definitely locked on. Worried now,I quickly leave the game to check Dododex if, for whatever stupid reason, Diplos are aggressive. When I discovered it was completely the opposite, however, I eagerly returned to the game, then laughed as I let the Diplo yeet me around the beach. I lead her back to my home and wedged myself in the corner of some stone foundations so she could continue to play with me while I tamed her. I wanted to name her something cool, but Dippy just suits her!
Here's a story of how a Diplo saved my life, so, one day I was going on a metal run with my parasaur(I was low level) when suddenly my parasaur came under vicious attack from a swarm of angry dragonflies, soon it was devoured alive and I picked up its metal, but then I was too heavy to move, so I sat for a long time dropping things until I saw a huge creature with massive teeth running straight towards me! The creature turned out to just be a Diplo though so I fed him berries and used him to carry the metal back home,
Just today, I was on a mining run at the central volcano and my quetzal was near completely encumbered from the metal, so I was just slow as heck. I tried to whistle follow but it she was just too slow and heavy. I told her to rest so I can eat when lo and behold, there was a diplo egg in the open. Without hesitation, I made it a snack for my long way home. Then I rode my quetzal downhill south when the mother of my meal nudged us forward, accelerating our current speed for a short time before repeating a few more times. Then after a raptor pack halted her progress, it was just the two of us out of there. We proceeded home, very much grateful for the actions a mostly-useless creature provided for our long journey home, as even in the wild they have at least two good used: burst propulsion regardless of weight, and danger- bait.
Thank the ARK gods for this unexpected boost to the conquest of the island,
And to you guys, tell your stories
and keep surviving!
No! Don’t hurt them....they just want to be friends...think about it.when you see a diplo and the diplo sees you...the diplo runs toward you to become friends...you run towards it to kill it.you slash it pounce it shoot it but hurt it ....but the diplo still wants to become friends...it is still smiling and laughing...but you are still hurting it...it’s health is low...it trusts you and think you can become best friends with him....until....until....the diplo falls back....no movement...no respiration....no sound....a still fallen diplo...with no sign of life...a dead diplo who hoped to be best friends...a naive innocent diplo....was killed by you....then you give a freckle smile....and you are happy about it...but you never knew what the diplo expected from you...please....STOP DIPLO ABUSE
