PRIOR EPISODE: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19997096/You awoke in a coffin and dug out. You met your creator, learned a bit about your past, and killed two cougarbeasts. You are currently in Arizona. There is a grey town made of scrap in your sights, and someone just shot at you with a sniper rifle.A voice blares through a megaphone."Halt and identify your name and purpose or we will fire!" The voice yells. It is female, very determined and somewhat defeated sounding.
My name is RPGmaker.
>>20004091i just looked up "wasteland town" and this is what I found.polite nokosage for not contributing
>>20004073Stop moving. Shout: "Alex Murphy, Hunter."
You halt in your tracks and yell to the woman "Alex Murphy. I am a hunter."She blares back "A hunter of what, exactly? Are you here to peddle your wares?">ACTION?
>>20004151"A hunter of all types of animals. I am."
>>20004157"I am a hunter of all types of animals." You reply. Doc whispers a suggestion in your mind, and you quickly add "I mean no harm to your settlement. I only wish to find a place to stay temporarily.""Very well," she says. "You may enter the settlement.">ACTION?
>>20004232Go on through. Remain aware of the status of the female; she may become agitated if she realizes we are a robot when we get closer. If she doesn't react, that will also tell us something.Ask Doc if there is a record of this settlement. Thank him for the help.
You inwardly ask Father if there is any record of this settlement. He replies with a negative; there was no settlement here but there was a farm.You continue through to the settlement while the woman glares at you, noticing the fact that you are a robot. You hear her mutter underneath her breath "what in the world..."You entire the settlement, which a sign tells you is named 'Cropfield'. Somewhat unsurprising. Everyone outside of their houses goes in and stares at you from the windows. It seems that a robot is a rare occurrence.>ACTION?
>>20004380Look for other signs. Appear as non-threatening as it is possible for a robot wearing bloody pelts with skull pauldrons to be.
>>20004380Are there any obvious weapons other than the women and her rifle?
>>20004455>>20004490A man approaches you, dressed in garb that would be appropriate of a western constable in the olden ages, as Doc tells you. He holds a revolver to your head."What do you want here, steel-ass?" He asks bitterly.>ACTION?
"Information. I request the status of the world in the past two hundred and fifty years. Is this acceptable."
>>20004563"A place to stay temporarily, as I told the woman with the large rifle."
"I am actually made of titanium and carbon fiber but the sentiment is not missed meatbag."
"I wish to know what has happened to the world in the past 250 years. And, perhaps, a place to stay." You tell the man."You happened, steel-ass. Your kind happened. They started a war and they finished it with fire. We won, but they broke us like twigs. They killed about 75% of the human population before they simply... fell apart." The man explains."Oh no... The fools went ahead and continued with the thought experiments after I buried you!" Father says in your head. You nod grimly."And as for a place to stay, you can stay at the Inn. We're gonna have eyes on you 24/7, steel-ass, so don't try any funny junk." He finishes."I wouldn't dream of it," You say as you examine the town for any place of use.There is 12 or so houses within this town center, most of them crammed together or above each other. There is a larger building labeled 'CROPFIELD INN', a building with a bright red cross in a dirty white circle stuck onto the front of it, and a building with a symbol of a wrench on it, labelled "Pete's Salvage">ACTION?
>>20004670Go to Pete's Salvage, see if we can UPGRADE!
>>20004758You decide to go to Pete's Salvage to see if you can get any upgrades. As you walk in, a short and stocky man eyes you warily. You ask "I don't suppose you could give me any upgrades to my systems?"He says "Depends. Are you willing to sell that cape of yours?">Y/N?
"Depends. What will relinquishing the cape be worth in this fine establishment"
>>20004834"You'd take the last scrap of clothes from a man? Well, let's see what you've got first."
>>20004860"It'll get you a systems analysis and a mechanical upgrade or two." He says. Behind him you see several books, such as "C++ for Dummies", "Mechanical Engineering for Dummies", and "Java for Dummies".>ACTION?
>>20004892UPGRADE SELECTIONAny main stat: +ORAny ability: level upADDITIONALLYWeapon Registry: Femur Club (Can be unregistered when necessary)
>>20004933So do we get either the upgrade OR the weapon?A speed or intellect boost could be handy.
>>20004995Upgrade and the weapon registry.
+ Noise Feedback, and register the weapon
I vote for speed.
My vote is for +Int
gonna give it another 10 minutes or so just to see if everyone else reading this could get their votes in.
>>20005007get those smarts up
>>20005188>>20005173Yeah, smart's good.
You give the man your cloak and let him tinker around with your systems."Interesting. Lots of encrypted files in here. What's your name, kiddo?" he asks"Alex -bzzt- Murphy." You say as you jolt a bit from Pete picking around in your head.You hide Doc as best as possible within several subfiles so that the man doesn't see it.LEVEL UP!Stat Gain!Intellect +Ability Gain!Club Registry lv 1: Your weapon has been registered to the Club (Melee, Blunt).Scan Unit lv 2: Passively gain information about units around you (faster than Scan Unit lv 1).Inventory:Femur Club (Club Weapon): +Intimidate, +Damage.(Just for clarification, the four stats do as follows. Intellect increases the rate in which your memory and ability files become decrypted (faster skill gain), offense increases the rate your abilities naturally level up and increases your weapon registry level up rate even faster, speed increases your energy regen rate and reaction time, and defense causes your shell to naturally reinforce itself and increases your ability to take damage.)>ACTION?
>>20005348See if he's got some work or shit to do.Get an up to date map.Kill more hostile fauna.
>>20005348Inquire about the creature the fur was from and about the relationship of this village with the local fauna.
>>20005468>>20005443You ask Pete about the creature your cape was from. He says "They're Coulfs. Artificial predators created by the robots with elements of both cats and dogs. They were supposed to be sterile, but they mutated and now they are one of the dominant predators not because of how dangerous they are, but because of how quickly they breed, and how resilient they are against natural mutations. We got some other guys out here like Gatenya and Ratmules out in the plains, but the latter is rare and the former is just a useful pack animal. Gatenyas will tear your shit, though." He says."Well, if you want more upgrades, I'm sure I can work out a deal with hunting the local fauna, as you say. heh." He continues. "It'll be a game. Get me 6 Coulf pelts and I'll see what I can do for you.">ACTION?
>>20005617I bet that nigga is ripping you off. Ask if they still use currency and if there is a tanner in town. Also, are those things edible? You should start hauling complete corpses back to the village to sell the fur to the tanner and the meat to the butcher.If they have currency, ask Pete how much the upgrades would cost in money.
>>20005617Fetch quest fuck yeah!"Acknowledged. Though, i find it strange how friendly you guys are considering robots destroyed civilisation before. I would have expected more hostility."
Welp, I have to go to the pool for a couple of hours, so I'll hopefully be back asap.it was fun so far.
>>20005643second, quickly followed by proceeding to the inn. socialize, its good for us, and, who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and learn a thing or two about their culture.
>>20007076i agree alot can happen in 250 years.
>>20005658>>20005643"There is no more currency. That's something that the robots did earlier was to destroy all of the minting places and currency they could find to shut down production. Nobody figured out how to barter again and that's what let us get stomped so early. Nowadays everything is traded, and I'm giving you great deals, especially because you're the only person I can sell most of this junk to, which is also why I'm not pissed like everyone else. And even though this is Pete's Salvage, it's more like Pete's Everything. I do the tanning, I do the cooking and butchering, I do everything except give people a place to stay and heal the wounded. And yes, the meat is 100% edible, not that you need it." He says with a friendly wink.>ACTION?
>>20007177We're a commander, we need minions. Do we know how to make primitive slavebots and does the junk around here look like we could make something from it?Also, ask him for some sort of cart he could borrow. I'm not sure how strong we are, but we only have two arms. What if we punch more than 2 creatures dead.Also, clubs are shitty weapons, ask if he has a spear or something, and how much that is.
>>20007177thank him and be off to the inn.
Access our vast recipe databanks and give him many many tips on more food that's better than the gruel he likely serves up. One day he'll be the hero of the wasteland, cooking up storms of food, and he can only thank us for it.
>>20007222>>20007218"I can't say that I know of any littler bots you can use. And all the weapons are property of the sheriff, and you know his thoughts on you. You're gonna need to do something real spectacular if you want to get in his good graces." Pete says as you ask him the questions.You leave the store and go to the Inn. An old looking lady smoking a cigarette sits behind the bar of the combination bar/lobby, and the rest of the lobby is deserted. "Sheriff told us you were coming. He said to give you room and board for a day. One. That's it." She says. Her voice is scratchy and hoarse, as you would expect from a smoker.>ACTION?
>>20007351We could ask around if there is any big trouble (A QUEST!) that needs solving around. Maybe we could even go to the sheriff and tell her we'll solve it.Also>We're a commander, we need minions. Do we know how to make primitive slavebots and does the junk around here look like we could make something from it?Was more of an introspective question. I mean, telling a human villager, not matter how tolerant, that we are a COMMANDER is probably alarming.Anyway, DO we have any knowledge of that kind?
>>20007351thank her, and try to strike conversation. perhaps using your "father" as an example, mimic his voice to make it easier for the woman to sympathize.
>>20007351Smoking can cause incurable damage to your lungs, fleshbag. I suggest you stop. On an unrelated note, is there anything that needs to be done around here? I wish to "pitch in".
>>20007420Please, that term is so passé.
>>20007351Ask for a mirror.
>Your name is Alex Murphy>ctrl+F "robocop"What is wrong with you /tg/?
>>20007399You asked him something like "Are there any little robots that I could use for myself?"Introspectively, you have no such knowledge that you are aware of.>>20007420>>20007448>>20007414You add the older and graver tones of Father to your voice in an attempt to make it easier to sympathize. "I have only two requests. One, are there any jobs I could do around here for you people? Two, do you have a mirror?" You ask.She pulls out a cracked mirror and you have your first look at yourself. She says "As I'm sure Pete's told you, the local Coulf packs need to be thinned out. Just do that for starters and we'll consider giving you something more... important to do afterward."You take a good long look at yourself. You can feel memory files open up, but nothing happens internally that you are aware of.>ACTION?
>>20007528bid her adieu and proceed to look for the sheriff, you should try and learn why he is so antagonistic toward robots. then go Coulf hunting.
>>20007528Paint a happy face on your head.Do you need to sleep? Is that a thing you need to do? What time is it?Otherwise, this:>>20007595
>>20007595>>20007616You have a feeling that you know why the Sheriff is antagonistic towards robots, because of the war. You also know instinctively that you do not require sleep or eating or drinking, as your body runs on solar energy and ambient energy in the world around you. Doc has told you while you were skinning the coulfs that your other advancement over the other robots is that you had /the/ most efficient solar generator possible to science. As long as you stay in sunlight for as long as possible during the day, you will usually always have power.You decide to go and leave the town to go Coulf hunting. You see the Sheriff put a phone away in his pocket, but pay it no mind.>ACTION?
>>20007783Remember our excellent tracking skills and track those coulfs. If we smell of anything, it's coulf blood, so we should have an advantage. In the meanwhile, calculate the amount of coulfs we have to kill to make it count as thinned out.
Head to a high up vantage point to get a view of the surrounding area. Like on a hill or something.
>>20007892>>20007876You decide to go to a high spot (of which the only is a sort of hill maybe a couple of feet into the air?) and let loose a coulf roar to attract some coulfs to your location. A sonar ping after you hear some roars in reply confirms several coulfs moving in your direction. From your vantage point, you see a pack of coulfs led by a very large one with red streaks in its fur approach you.(cont.)

You let loose another feedback burst to stun the one currently fighting you before plunging a metallic hand down its throat and grabbing something. You yank hard and very badly damage the coulf.

You pull the instantly killed coulf (you pierced its heart) and threw it to the side. The last normal coulf still in fighting condition came to face you.

>>20009663>>20009664>>20009674You comply with their request. The leader takes some thick looking steel rope off the side of her ratmule and wraps you with it tightly, before adding a thick padlock.

After about a minute of riding, you arrive back at Cropfield. There is a stage set up, and you are lead up to it.

Your choice is made to increase to Feedback Pulse lv 2: Now stuns for slightly longer and only uses 9% Energy/use---You bust out of your stocks somewhat easily, then grab the leader and deliver a question to her face."May I ask what the charges are for my execution? I've done nothing wrong since before coming to, entering this town and leaving it."She spits in your eye (which slides off your waterproofed frame), and comes in close to whisper something. "It's all bullshit. There is no charges against you, just this Sheriff and this town and their vendetta for something they weren't a part of. It's all a show of good will. But I was about to kill you, and I still have to."She then knees you in the stomach, but you release a burst of noise once more that stuns the entire crowd. As they recover, holy shit a massive bird dragon comes down behind you on the stage what the fuck.>Energy: 63%>roll 1d100 to react, best out of 3.

>>20009881You attempt to mount the bird, but holy shit it's huge. Also it's too tall, and when you try to get a grip, it throws you off. You see its stomach begin to glow red, and everyone but the lead Enforcer runs out of the way. The lead Enforcer just rolls forward as the Birdrake releases a gout of green smog that quickly ignites before it even leaves the mouth, sending a line of flame down into where the crowd was."Ah, a natural pyrophoric acid!

You take the cable and fashion it into a quick lasso that you send over the birdrake's neck, yanking it down as the Enforcer pours more bullets into it. Within minutes, the beast is done and finished.(cont.)
"Now then..." The Enforcer says, walking to the Sheriff. She cuffs his hands behind his back and yells this. "Sheriff Kaplin, you are under arrest for endangering the peace and being an accomplice to an attempt at mass murder. We know that's your birdrake, we know you've secretly raised it from a hatchling. You were going to try and set this robot as the bad guy if he won and the good guy if he died, and made yourself look good in either way. You are scum, endangering a citizen because of something they had no part in and that you had no part in either!"The Sheriff nods and a tear, a single tear of regret, drops down his eye.

Well, we probably shouldn't run outta town just yet. Despite the madness, this'd be a good place to set up for now given we got Phil with his salvage to upgrade ourselves with and could probably keep that room at the Inn given we helped save the town.Figure we could talk to the lead enforcer, ask if Alex may have the Sheriff's hat and duster as a means for disguise/general clothing to wear.IRegardless of the answer, we do need to take the pelts to Phil. If we get the duster, maybe he can work us up a better cape with two Coulf heads as shoulderpads as we had previously or just add that onto the duster.
"You guys are all assholes. Except for you Pete, you're cool."
>>20010297Wait, crap, I meant Pete, not Phil.
>>20010298Yes, startle them by not acting like a robot.
>>20010317>>20010241>>20010298>>20010297The lead Enforcer gestures for the sack of dead coulfs to be brought to Pete's store, and then turns to face you. "Sorry about the ruse, Mister...""It's Murphy. Alex Murphy." You say back."Right you are then, Mister Murphy. You can call me Delia, and that's all you need to know. We needed to put on that elaborate ruse to get rid of this Sheriff. He's been harboring dangerous animals and training them to go on sieges to relatively nearby settlements, and we needed proof before we could make a move. The report he sent to us was all the proof we needed, and when you busted out as we suspected you would, he called down the birdrake, also as expected. Sorry for leaving you in the dark, but it had to be authentic.""That's nice and all, but that was kind of dickish. Can I at least take his clothes?" You ask back."Since he was trying to kill you real bad, why not. He has no next of kin to claim his belongings." Delia says, handing you his duster, revolver, phone, and hat. You put on the hat and duster, pocketing the revolver and phone. "If you ever need the help of the Enforcers, just give me a ring. We'll be there as fast as possible."You would say something about being assholes, but thinking back on it, only the Sheriff was openly hostile towards you. The most hatred you got besides that was from the innkeeper and that was only passive-agressive shit.Pete looks up from the pile of corpses and beams at you.>ACTION?

>>20010455>>20010432>>20010431You spit out a quick "Much appreciated, Delia" before turning to Pete and sauntering over.Inside, you ask Father his opinion on your appearance. But you don't have a mirror with you right now, so he can't see you. And neither can you."Well Pete, I seem to have exceeded your expectations, correct?" You say, as the last Enforcers haul the dead birdrake over to you and then depart."Hell yeah! Come in real quick, and I'll give you a little tinkering that you've been asking for." He replies(cont.)
