    You are a strange creature, capable of taking over other lifeforms to serve as your vessel. Your current host, Jack Winters, was unbeknownst to you a drug addict, and overdosed on speedball. To survive, you bonded with him, but this damaged you, leaving you without any idea of what you are.Your purpose seems to be related to the series of objects that have appeared and dissapeared above major population centers, and to the cyborg-like creature that you killed. Leaving the party that your host's girlfriend organized for you, you met others of your kind, who reacted with hostility to your presence, proclaiming you sick and broken.You managed to kill one of the combat-oriented ones, called a Warrior. During the fight, an aircraft, made and piloted by humans, was shot down.Investigating it, you found that it contained tech reminiscent of the alien tech of the cyborgs. You escaped the police arriving to the scene, and returned, pretending to be a black man.You managed to find little information beside the fact that some government organizations are involved.

    Your known abilities are:
    - reinforcing your muscle and bone tissue, making you several times stronger,faster and tougher
    - growing weapons from your arms, limited to one on each arm in any combination:a hooked, double edged blade on your forearm, claws or a spike that springs out from your wrist underneath your palm
    - hardening your skin into thick,segmented bone plate armor, and growing a membrane under your skin, that contains fluid that hardens on impact
    - absorbing ingested organic material, that you can use to increase muscle and bone density(animal tissue is the most effective)
    - the ability to call forth your host's memories, skills and knowledge
    -altering your appearance, includin skin\hair\eye colour, facial features, height, build, and gender, though the more elaborate the change is, the more time and effort it takes.
    -producing almost any kind of drug or poison in liquid form, including sedatives, that you can deliver either at high pressure from an opening that can be created anywhere on your body, or through the wristspike.

    Hey, OP

    I should apologize. I ignored your quest before even when I ran into it during thread 1 but after reading the archives this seems to be interesting.

    Though, I will voice the complaint that one anon left you in thread 1:
    your posts lack a bit of flavour. The updates are sometimes very short, like a single line or two. It is always nice when the Quests are more descriptive (see some of the popular ones like Dragon Quest, Harlem Quest, etc... or not as popular but certainly amazing: Binder Quest)
    Not saying to start writing walls of text, but would be good if you tried to write a bit more.

    >reading the previous thread
    >after the dangerous fight, people go for the VTOL, ignorir 3 bodies of Bodysnatchers, which would have been easy snack and free upgrades.


    Anyway, what was the plan now? We changed into the FBI agent....
    Now what?

    This whole idea seemed dumb to me when I was reading the archive.

    You are in the club Jack's girlfriend dragged you to, in a second floor bathroom. There are two guards outside, guarding the stairs to the third floor. The building is 5 storeys high, and Agent Jacobs is on the roof alongside the downed VTOL.

    You stiff the pistols into Greg's pants, and fold your clothes neatly, placing them in a stall adjacent to the one Greg's in. You check yourself in the mirror, seeing the face of a thirtysomething Caucasian man, with watery green eyes, blotchy skin, and a sligh mustache. His -your- hair is a dirty blonde, already receding at the top. Everything seemingly checking out, you step outside, and start walking to the stairs in the grimy, dimly lighted corridor, pretending to talk on your phone about something pseudo-significant. You wave to the guards, and they salute, standing aside to let you pass. The building's main stairs are beyond the door, leading to a number of apartments and small offices. The place is in disrepair, the plaster cracking on the walls, the steps smoothed by years of use, and only one in two lightbulbs are working. There are soldiers standing guard at every floor, but they don't seem to expect any trouble, saluting you with bored looks on their faces. The trip to the roof should have exhausted you, if you were truly Greg that is. Your enhanced muscles carry the weight without exertion, and soon you are greeted by the sight of the VTOL, swarmed by soldeirs and technicians, with helicopters botting the night sky.

    You see Agent Jacobs, shouting at one of the technicians."Goddamnit, what's taking so long? Will you give me a status report already?" The man gives the agent an annoyed look. "These things take time, sir. Any minute now." Another techie climbs out of the craft, an hurries over to him, handing a PDA over. "Everything checks out, the cloacking device is at 98%, and the tracker is completely undamaged. Shouldn't take us more than 3 hours to fit both onto another KP-21." "Okay, people, we've got to get them back to Central, I want an airlift prepared in 3 minutes!"Jacobs shouts, and seems to only notic you now, turns, growling "What took you so long?

    Insulate your brain as much as you can.
    start making a dart which will fly to one of the guards.
    talk to him while preparing.

    They probably see you as normal bodysnacher, as in we take over the body but it stays mostly the same. They dont know we can grow blades from our body which we can use to cut the restraints.
    Make your body ready by stalling the conversation ti you get to perfect state to release yourself and take out everyone in the room

    The CNS works by sending electrical impulses though, you can't prevent getting electrocuted and still maintain control over your body.

    Try to convince them to let her go safely first, since she's not involved in this. It also helps make us seem a bit more human if we care about the well-being of others.

    He looks at you with a bemused face. "Curious, curious. From what we know, you should come with a set of instructions from the get go.Hmmm."

    See, this way they think we care about pathetic human lives, and might make the mistake of judging us based on human standards.

    Don't break out yet as we could still use some answers, but be ready to deploy armor, shoot darts, and break our restraints and shred everyone in the room, maybe knocking out one of these people that knows some answers and taking them with us when we escape with Catherine.

    We could inject someone with a sleeper chemical, couldn't we? That makes someone pass out for a while. We could interrogate them later after feeding some bullshit story to our host's girlfriend Catherine.

    "Smart choice," you say. "Now listen. I'm a patient guy but... well actually I'm not. So unless you want to explain what the fuck is going on, I think we'll be leaving now. That sound good to you, Catherine? Cause I think it's more than fair for what you fuckers put us through."

    Oh, sorry. Had my wires crossed.

    "There was some cyborg-ed shithead. Kinda like that Star Wars' Borg thing."

    Intended mistake, since I guess Jack isn't really the geek/nerd type to know the difference. Of course, if Jack knows the difference, Star Trek it is, since Megan would spot the difference.

    Also, check on Catherine, once guns are away from us.

If you don't I'm going to walk with Catherine here. You okay?" you say, looking down at her. She's whimpering, but looks up at you as you say her name, and emits a muffled scream, as instead of her boyfriend, she sees a freakish thing covered in segmented bone, with hokked blades on it's arms. She crawls backwards, until she finds a corner, hugs her knees, and starts crying again. "DON'T! He's a Hunter, nothing short of an armored platoon can slow him down." You look back, and see the Doctor pushing the speargun down in one of the gunmens hands. "Very well, we'll tell you what we know, but we should take care of her first, no?"

    Okay. This is what we wanted - to make a scene.

    Turn back to normal, while keeping up as many imperceptible defenses as possible, and comfort Catherine. Reassure her that we're still the Jack she knows - pick out a memory from Jack's mind, maybe the one of how he met her or some other sentimental BS, and describe it to her so that she knows we're really not who we are. Give her a hug or something if she's calmed down enough. That usually turns out pretty well in the movies.

    I agree with this, but pick the memory of how we defended her from her abusive father. She knows Jack would do anything to keep her safe. If I remember the first thread correctly, he did time and ruined his life to protect her.

    "Woah, let's just slow down there for a second." you say, bone receding all over your body, concerned features becoming visible."No one "takes care of" anyone here, got that?" The Doctor looks at you with amusement, while Megan makes a How-can-someone-be-so-stupid face. "I only mean that we should tend to her wounds, I trust that is quite allright with you?" "I, uh, yeah. Of course." He gives you a bright smile, and snatches a first-aid kit from one of the piles lying around. "And gentlemen, if you wuold please put those guns down? The most you can do with them right now is get us all killed. Thank you." You go over to Catherine, crouch down beside her and say "Cath? Catherine, it's me, Jack. No one's going to hurt you, everything is fine now." She looks up at you with doubt and fear, but calms down when you recite for her the first time you met. "Wh-What's going on with you? Is, is there something going to happen to me too? I got bit, didn't I? That's how it works, you said so, yourself, you got bit too."She looks like she's going to break down again.

    Damn it! It was Catherine that got bit? Somehow I thought it was Megan that got bit!

    MY TRAIN OF THOUGHTS: Blown off the rails.

    Ask the Doctor if she'd be alright and all. Try to pump for information all the same. Start speaking about the cyborg dude and Infiltrator punk chick.

    Also, do we care about 'murderizing' the whole of this room (Catherine and Megan included), if it ever come to it?

    On the devil's advocate side (or moralfag's), there might be reasons for these: She's seen effects of an Infiltrator and remains skeptical of 'Jack' or she has washed her hands off him and mentally thrown him under the bus from a long time ago (since break-up with addict Jack).

    For now, I vote for trying to get her to trust the new and better 'Jack', the saviour Jack of her past, not the Jack that came out of the juvie.

    I am unsure if this organization is connected with the Feds. We need more information.

    "Really? Am I really going to be fine?" The Doctor nods, and she blinks away the rears and smiles, hugging you."Well, if you are quite finished there, then might I tell you about the things you were so vocal about?" Megan asks mockingly. You break the hug, and stand up as the Doctor kneels beside her, opening up the first-aid kit. With the three gunmen failing miserably at being non-threatening in the background, Megan sits down in the chair in front of the computer and starts swirling around on it lazily. "So, I guess you could say it all started when a young FBI agent, named Gabriel Jacobs met a woman named Anne Grey in 1993, in a small town in the middle of Buttfuck Nowhere, Arkansas. She claimed to have been attacked by aliens masquareding as humans, and showed remarkable powers. Sounds similar yet? So when he took it to his bosses, and they took it to their bosses, and so on and so on, the order, strangely enough was to provide a comfortable living for her, while trying to attain as much information from her. Now, this was rather strange, as no attempt was made to study her powers, I mean, none at all, while you'd think they'd get all slice happy, yeah? So, while all this is happening, they a prepping a military base with an insane amount of quarantine measures, and... Shit.Shitshitshitshitshit." On her last turn, she notices something on the monitor, and turns back towards you, her face bloodless and pale, her hands visibly shaking. Your delight doesn't last long, as she calls out in a thin voice "Doc? It looks like the critter managed to put out a distress call, or beacon before it got smashed. It summoned every available strike time of theirs in a 100 mile radius." The Doctor looks up from treating Catherine, visibly shaken, managing only to say "Oh dear.".

    Paragraphs spacing for one would be nice. It'd be easier to read than a wall of text.

    Story/plot-wise, it worked out okay. There seems to be a plot, and we are rather quickly introduced to it, rather being left to sandbox and then suddenly shoved/rail-roaded into the main plot while we are interested in doing something else.

    Just have to be careful about power-ups and the rate we can gain it from eating the Bodysnatchers. And also let us gain non-morph power-ups, like improved bluffing skill, etc.

    Till next time.

    Last time, we were unable to eat the metal guys, centipede included. We eat the organic ones, the Bodysnatchers, instead.

    Now, though, if we get some kind of power up, to EAT all of them, including non-invaders (human)...

    I was just thinking of some non-combat uses of our abilities.

    The high-powered wrist spike could serve as a quick way of opening locked doors. Place the spike against the lock and then shoot it forward, would be much quieter and more subtle than kicking it down.

    The arm hook-blades should be very helpful for climbing and hooking on to things. The finger blades should help with climbing as well.

    The napalm spray makes disposing of evidence fairly easy (if not exactly subtle), just spray the crime scene with napalm and leave the incriminating evidence to burn away.

    I'm also curious as to what sort of drugs we can sythesise. We know a napalm substance, a sedative and a lethal toxin but it'd be very cool if we could synthesise something to make people more suggestible. It'd be much less suspicious if we could drug our victims in a way that they are still able to walk around but don't have the capacity to attempt escape (saves us being caught carrying drugged bodies through the streets). Similarly, a truth serum like sodium amytal or pentothol would make interrogation much easier (and yes, I know they're unreliable but it does make them more talkative which would be better than nothing). Sodium amytal's ability to induce 'false memories' would be excellent as a subtle way of covering our tracks (possibly convincing Catherine that she didn't see what she thinks she did). These sort of uses shouln't be that hard since they're basically just variations of a sedative.

    Why not make very tiny spikes that we can use a lock picks? A strong flat spike that's like a tension wrench and some very thin long spikes and we'd be able to enter most doors.

    Why not use a cocktail of powerful enzymes to break down biological evidence into goop? DNases, lipase, ect.

    Why not improve our vision into the UV and IR ranges?

    Very nice. I was thinking of things that we can do now though, not sure whether we'd need to spend an upgrade to see in a wider spectrum or morph lockpicks.
