Your name is Alex Murphy. You are a 250 year old robot with the capability to think and your creator in your mind. You have just killed several cougarwolves, or Coulfs, and a Birdrake, after being captured by the law enforcing Enforcers. You were used as bait to draw out the Sheriff of your town, who was training beasts to raid towns. In gratitude, you were given the sheriff's personal effects (but not his house), and Pete has given you several upgrades.UPGRADE!Offense +Feedback Upgrade:Efficient Feedback lv 2: Further decrease the cost of Feedback BurstImproved Feedback lv 2: Further increase the duration of Feedback BurstFeedback Burst lv 3: Further slightly decrease the energy cost and slightly increase the duration of Feedback Burst.WEAPON REREGISTERED: Revolver lv 1.

>>20011028Inquire of Father as to minions and of Pete as to the cost of ammunition.
>>20011015Sell pelts, go shopping for better/more ammo.
>>20011045Int was upgraded near the beginning of thread 2. Offense used to be --, now it is simply -.
>>20011052I second the notion.
>>20011052>>20011051(Pete has already taken the pelts as payment for the upgrade)You inquire to Doc about his ability to create robotic minions out of scrap. He responds with a positive, but that the knowledge is, somewhat predictably, locked away in an encrypted file that has quite a large amount of encryption in it. He could guide you step by step, but it would require a restrictively long amount of time on the order of months possibly to create one.You ask Pete about ammunition and he responds positively as well, giving it to you as a bonus. 20 additional shells on another belt, plus 10 rounds of explosive ammunition. You thank him and ask him if there's anything else to do around here."Not much, really. I'm sure if you ask around there's menial tasks here and there, but nothing really pressing, and I'm sure going Coulf hunting would get boring fast.">ACTION?
rolled 2, 4 = 6Has Pete taken the kills from our hunt?If not, we should quickly enhance our fist weapons with the addition of Cougarbeast teeth.
>>20011149Yes, but you ask and he quickly fixes up a set of coulf-teeth knuckledusters for you. Nifty.>ACTION?
>>20011175Find a mirror, observe ourself, strike a pose, ask Dad how we look.Then ask about the surrounding area, especially about other major settlements nearby.
>>20011175Groovy. Let's hit up the saloon once more. Always something to do. Maybe play a hand of cards.
>>20011175Pete is indeed good people. Does he know of any other nearby settlements?
>>20011219>>20011224You use a mirror in Pete's shop to examine you in all your sheriffy goodness. You would say you look badass. Doc says "You look pretty spiffy, I'd say."You ask Pete about other settlements. He says "The closest one is Tractormaede, about 20 miles or so northwest of here. It's a lot bigger than here, so if you're looking for more to do you should probably go there.">ACTION?
>>20011257Thank Pete, ensure we give him a list of food recipes from our recipe-databanks.Then leave, onwards to greener pastures.
>>20011257Ask for a map, say my good-byes and then hit the road. Perhaps catch a caravan heading in?
>>20011291>>20011295"No problem," Pete says, handing you a map of the local area. Cropfield is located in the southeastern corner, and Tractormaede is closer to the middle, but still close to the corner. In the very bottom left corner, there is a large red X and a skull symbol next to it. There is one significantly larger city all the way at the top right of the map, "New Scotsdale", but it's much farther than the distance between Cropfield and Tractormaede. You print out a list of recipes for Pete and hand them to him before making your goodbye.Nifty, it seems Delia has left a Ratmule for you at the entrence.You'll have to thank her for that.>ACTION?
>>20011295>>20011291A combination of these two. Surely Doc left some old-world knowledge in our noggin besides geography.Also, talk to Delia, see if she knows of anything to be done or anything of interest about the surrounding area. And if she might pass along to her fellow Enforcers down the line that we are good people and not out to hurt anyone.
>>20011333Well, then, let's head off to Tractormaede. It's close by, and likely to provide opportunities to upgrade our gear and/or programming.
>>20011333We should probably talk to Delia, let her know where we're going first, get her advice and make sure she knows where to find us if needed. Also see if we can get something from her that can verify we're a nice dude to any other Enforcers.
Delia has left, but you send her a text message on the phone to pass along to other Enforcers that you are a fine and dandy dude.You get on the Ratmule, it having already been trained and prepared, as you can tell from its age from scanning. It accepts your presence, you only being slightly heavier than a normal human, and you set off towards Tractormaede.>roll 1d10 for random events (I decide, you just roll die), first 3, skip repeated numbers.

As you travel, you encounter what appears to be a cross between a dog and an alligator. You assume this is a baby Gatenya, from what you've been told.>ACTION?
>>20011582Ping for other animals. If there aren't any, let's try and domesticate it.
>>20011598This. Good call on the ping.
>>20011582My, that's adorable as all hell. Wave at the pup.
>>20011582Can we get details on what the pup is doing?
>>20011582My god, its adorable, is it a corgi gator?This needs to be a pet.
>>20011598>>20011620>>20011627You let loose a ping detecting nothing else in the area except the Gatenya pup. You decide to get off the Ratmule and try to domesticate it.You pet it lightly. It pants and sticks its tongue out as you pet it. You scratch it behind the ear and it seems to sigh in content and its eyes shut halfway.>ACTION?
>>20011649Take it with us.
>>20011649What about under the earth around us? This thing might have a mother who'll leap to its defense. But given that it hasn't shown up and it's absolutely adorable, give it a few more pets, cautiously see if it wants to come with us and then pick it up and place it in front of us on the Ratmule.
rolled 3, 2 = 5SCAN IT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL LOGICWE MUST KNOW ITS WEAKNESS
our first pet n minion ah what do we call it
>>20011686You pick it up. It does not object, but only because its long tongue has taken a slice of meat you saved for your Ratmule and began chewing on it. It's surprisingly light, so from what you've heard, they must get much heavier as they age.But that is a good question. What do we name the damn thing?
>>20011682A scratch behind the ear or under the left back leg will render the pup helpless
>>20011715Seeing as we're Alex Murphy.Let's name him Jimmy.
>>20011715Rex, we'll name him Rex.Also make sure we have the gender right.

You name your new pet Rex, and use a length of rope to fashion a harness to the saddle and him.You ride on, until you reach a rocky outcropping with a stream running through it.You decide to take a break and feed your new pet and your Ratmule, when you hear a growling noise.>ACTION?

You ping the area, detecting a fast moving shape moving in your direction. You turn to face where it is...and it comes into view, a monstrous violation of nature. It's bounding towards you, mouth open, screeching violently.>roll 1d100 to react, best of 3

>>20011995Wow, that's accurate. In one end and out the other.
>>20011995The cuts extend and crisscross, and you see shards of bone appear on them, forming into complete mouthes. You are pretty sure normal things don't do this. The beast screeches from every orifice, and Rex yelps in pain.>roll 1d100, best out of 3

rolled 66 = 66Time for explosive rounds. lets see what kind of payload the future has on them.
>>20012050You load an explosive round into the chamber quickly, and then fire upon the beast once more, cleanly blowing up the front end of the beast. The back end begins twitching as it falls apart into a pile of meat and gore.(cont.)
The beast begins to pull itself together into a shape, as its skin and bones and muscle regenerate in front of your eyes. The constantly shifting mass of tissue prevents your scan from getting a lock on it.>ACTION?
From here on out, we need to start looking for a flamethrower of some kind. Makeshift or otherwise. I'm starting to think it would help.Also unload one more round into it, grab Rex and the horse-thing and haul ass.
rolled 14 = 14>>20012139

You activate your feedback burst 3 times for good measure, covering Rex's ears, before grabbing the reins and hauling ass on the Mulebeast.You think you might've wandered close to the skull portion of the map on accident.That won't happen again.(cont.)
rolled 55 = 55>>20012170I agree.
Not bothering to look behind you at the monstrosity, you check your scanner to see if it caught anything. Nothing, not a single bit of information, oh well.(Since you got a 1 on the last roll, no third random event for you muahahah)After about an hour and a half more of traveling, you reach Tractormaede.It's big.(picture is in the op).(cont.)
(so, guys, I have to go do the sleepy thing now, so try to bump this every hour or so to prevent it from dying until the morning. I'll archive it any way just in case.Goodnight elegan/tg/entlemen).
rolled 37 = 37I want to find some way to light shit on fire. Always gotta have fire for these kinds of things.Also is it possible for us to eat/get drunk/rest?

Bump. WAEK UP PERSON IN DIFFERENT TIMEZONE.
(I love you guys)Anyway, you reach Tractormaede and pull in your tiny posse to the front gates. You suppose you can just go on in, there's nobody really stopping you.>ACTION?
>>20015796(what I'm doing up at almost 5am, I'll never know)Ride in like a cowboy badass, ask directions towards any possible work. Keep Rex close too, don't want him running off and getting lost.
>>20015796Ride on in carefully, keep an eye out for sentries and the like. If there are any hail them and introduce ourself.
What the fuck, Alex Murphy, we're Robocop?
>>20015866we're not actually Robocop. Name won the roll, nat100. Besides, I think it's a nice nod to the whole fact it's a quest about a robot with a human conscience too.
>>20015796You Champion. Head in. See if we can find somewhere to stable our Ratmule.
You ride into town slowly, carefully, but still trying to maintain a badass image. The people stare at you but you at least get a better reception then at Cropfield. You decide to go up to a big huge building labelled "Town Hall". They let you in without much trouble, and inside there are several rows of doors, each with the name of what you assume to be a bureaucratic agent and their duty above it.>ACTION?
Oh and your Ratmule is stabled by the town hall.
>>20015911Look for a plaque that has a job description that looks like it'd be helpful. Anything to do with the Enforcers, town information or independent contractors. Failing that find the fanciest door and knock politely on it.
>>20015919Is our goal basically get money, acquire upgrades?If so I second this.
>>20015919I third the notion.
You look upon the plaque labelled "John Cotton, Bounty Organizer". You decide that's a good enough place to start.(cont.)
>>20016020Time to make some justice. Adjust hat on head, then walk in with confidence.
(brb finding image)
Dang it I must sleep. We take on a bounty, we get the bounty money and we get us some upgrades.
>>20016029Keep fighting the good fight mah brotha frumma nutha mutha
As you walk in the room, the world seems to get grayer. The man sits in a reclining office chair, polishing his pistol. The little triangle name stand thingy says the same thing as outside, "John Cotton, Bounty Organizer".You ask "So, is this the place to go if I want to go on a job hunting bounties?"John looks at you and says, "Yeah. You don't look like any normal bounty hunter though. Most aren't robots." He chuckles at his own joke, his desert accent tempered with both a southern drawl and a hint of what you imagine to be a brooklyn accent. "So what'll your reward be? I can imagine you don't want booze or cigs.""I want upgrades. I want to see whoever you have that knows how to engineer things and I want to see anyone here who knows programming." You reply frankly."Haha, well, we got someone we could get for that. Now," He says, leaning over his desk. "Your first job is to find a little girl in this town. She's, believe it or not, an incredibly dangerous killer, clinically insane, but we can't find her at all. She's off the radar completely." He slips you a photo of an ordinary looking schoolgirl, wearing a frilly dress and her hair put in two sidetails. Then you notice the barber's razor in her other hand coated in blood, and the bloodstains on her t-shirt."Do that for us, and we'll get you what you need." He says.>ACTION?
>>20011582Oh god that's so fucking cute, the retard look and cuteness just go hand in hand.
>>20016079We need more info on the girl, like methods and the like.
>>20016079Details would be appreciated. Name, age, family, acquaintances, modus operandi, number killed, personal history, an assessment of how good she would be in a straight up fight. Give me a map of the town and locations where all the killings took place, there might be more of a pattern than immediately obvious.
>>20016091"I need more info on the girl, like methods and such." You ask. John nods, and says "She likes to sneak into houses during nighttime through small openings like vents and such, then she slits the neck of everyone she finds. Usually everyone else is alerted to the killing by a weird combination of laughter and screaming, but by the time we get there she's already gotten away. She always uses a barber's razor from what we can tell.""Anything else you need to know?
>>20016079Get as much info on the girl as possible, where the last killings occurred, age, etc. Second off, ask where the nearest gun store is. Helps to be prepare if she's as deadly as he says.
>>20016103>>20016120"Her name is Jessie, we estimate she's around 10 or so, and we have no idea if she has any family or not, or friends. She's killed 13 people so far, one every week, like clockwork, but the killings are completely random. As for personal history and how good she'd be in a fight, we have no idea of either of those things. And the only guns we have are in possession of the local law enforcement, so you're gonna want to get in their good graces if you want stock of the armory, so to speak." John explains."Anything else?"
>>20016151"Is there any pattern to where she attacks and is an attack due?"
>>20016151You call it completely random, there is always a method to someone's madness, we just don't have the right viewpoint to see it.Get me a map of the town and the locations she has struck.You said she kills one person a week, and you also said she sneaks into houses and kills everyone in there. These two facts are contradictory. What aren't you telling me?
>>20016175Maybe she's only killing in the houses of people who live alone?Or maybe he's keeping something from us
>>20016179He said she slits the neck of everyone she finds. I find this fishy.Also get our hand ready to quickdraw our pistol and be prepared to Feedback Burst him in the face.
>>20016168>>20016175"I'm sorry, that was a slip of wording. She has killed 13 households, one per week, like clockwork. And we mapped out her killings already." He says, pointing to a map he's pulled out. There are big red dots, he explains, where the killings occurred, and then lines connecting them to each other. If there's a pattern from location, he can't notice, and after looking at it for a while, you can't notice either.And in your mind, you feel a clicking, an unlocking of files.UPGRADE!Sonar Ping Upgrade:Enhanced Sonar lv 1: Units detected by your sonar are clearer and scanned faster.Improved Sonar lv 1: Your sonar has a larger range.Sonar Ping lv 2: Your sonar detects units somewhat clearer and has a slightly improved range.>10 minutes to vote

UPGRADE!Sonar Ping lv 1 > Improved Sonar Ping lv 1-----Ignoring that moment of oddness, you tell John that you don't notice anything. Then you have an idea."Do you have any information on the households she's killed?" You ask.John nods. "We haven't given it a good hard look, but, give me a second and I will." He says as he pulls out a large paper and begins looking up and down it.His eyes widen, and he smacks himself on the forehead. "Of course! Every family killed has a daughter within the 9-13 age group and no other children! I don't understand why, but I think we can make a couple of predictions now. Hand me that map." He says, cursing his own stupidity under his breath.He takes the map, and makes several circles around rectangles that represent houses. 4 in total. "Here are the likely locations for her next attack. Which is tonight, by the way. Think you got this covered?" He says.>ACTION?
>>20016262"I'm assuming she's probably had extreme mommy and daddy issues. I'll try to appeal to that. Should that fail, I'll employ something else. But yeah, I got this covered."
>>20016262trip fell off, my bad
>>20016262How far apart are the buildings? If we can't cover all of them with the Improved Sonar we won't be physically able to do that as we have no idea about which one she's targeting. About the daughters, is there anything more in common other than their ages? Share any teachers, play locations, groups, cliques?
I say we try to ground herIf that fails, we grind her in to dustAnd tell people that we grounded her.... in to dust
>>20016290The buildings aren't enough to cover with a lv 1 improved sonar, but if you get in between two you could get near them.John looks at you and says "Yeah... They all have a similar appearance. Blond hair, blue eyes, round face. And, kiddo. Give her the death penalty."You walk out the office, locations memorized from the map. Speaking of which, as you walk outside, a boy is standing near your Ratmule and Rex. "Oh hey mister! I fed your pets for you, hope you don't mind!" He then runs off very quickly. Odd.Anyway, night is beginning to fall.>ACTION?
>>20016314Check the eyes of both Rex and the Ratmule for any dilation. Last time, a rogue cell phone call almost got you killed, a stranger's kindness might have done something equally as sinister.
>>20016314That little shit better not have poisoned our ratmule and crocdogGet 'im!
>>20016323You check both of their eyes. They look normal enough, nothing strange, no dilation.
Quickly make our way to the houses. Let's try and warn the occupants. If we attempt to save human lives then people will look on us more favorably.
>>20016314We don't have enough range to cover all the buildings.Make sure our pets are doing fine.Call up the local Enforcers or find the local chapter, we can't cover all 4 buildings, we need at least two assistants, I'd prefer 4 so they can pair up, each cover one and we Radar the hell out two of them.
What sort of ammo do we have available by the way?
>>20016330>>20016334You call up Delia, and ask her if there are 4 Enforcers nearby you can use to cover the houses. She says yes, she'll send them over as soon as possible, where should they meet you? You tell her in front of town hall.Within 2 minutes, three male enforcers and one female one on Ratmules come in and stable them near you. You tell them the addresses to go to and give them a description of Jessie. Meanwhile you go to the other closest pair of houses and hide in an alleyway, using your Sonar every 10 minutes or so.(cont.)
>>2001635039 normal, 9 explosive.
After about an hour of waiting, your sonar pays off.>Energy: 77%You detect a small shape moving near the house to the south and move silently. You get into view and see Jessie stalking along near the side of the house, looking for an entrance. (Imagine the pic related, without the dude, younger, and in schoolgirl clothing.)>ACTION?
>>20016371Ready my pistol slowly and move slowly towards her.
Welp, here goesTake aim, walk out in to plain view"Young lady, you are in a lot of trouble."(I like to imagine that there is a cloak billowing about us in the wind for some badass effect)
>>20016371Fire a warning shot near her, and yell to drop the weapon or the next shot will connect.
>>20016399>>20016398You aim at her with your pistol while your scanner takes effect. You say "Young girl! You are in a lot of trouble!"She turns towards you, her neck jerking awkwardly, like her body is not used to moving. You hear several cracks, and cringe a little."How am I in trouble, big man? I haven't done anything wrong. I love my mommy and daddy! I love them so much, I am a good little girl and you are all rotten spoiled brats! You don't deserve how good you have it, but I am a good girl! I am a good, good girl!" Her voice is high and cracked.>ACTION?

You use feedback burst and she kneels to her knees, and you take quick aim with a loaded explosive round. You fire...and you hear several cracks of joints snapping as she /flickers/ in speed. There is an explosion, and as the dust clears, you see her, standing there, somewhat singed, and her knife in front of where you aimed. "I love my mommy and my daddy very much and you are a bad person!" She says. She walks towards you, cracking her knuckles as she moves.>ACTION?

You walk into Cotton's office, ignoring the looks of everyone around you. You set down Jessie in the corner and saunter up to Cotton. "The death penalty, like you said. But not her. This." You toss the stomped worm onto his desk, and he grabs it and looks at it. "Intriguing. So are you saying she was under the control of this... thing?" He inquires."Yeah," You reply. "Never seen something like this, I'm assuming?" You ask him."Yeah, there's plenty of freaky shit out here, but nothing I've seen like this. I'm sure if you get to New Scotsdale, you could get some sciencey people to examine it. And yeah, I got your reward. Go to Carl Max's room, a couple over. He knows the deal." Cotton finishes.And yes, you have her knife.>ACTION?

You decide to go to the local bar/inn to see if you can get any more information, and also to try your hands at playing cards, which Doc has told you to try earlier on.You enter in and... nobody really notices you. You go to a booth at the corner and plop your steel ass down.>ACTION?
>>20017896thought so, ask doc what he thinks about physical upgrades to our body, useful and cosmetic. then head to saloon rest a spell and info up. oh, and can we scan the pets for worms

>>20017964>>20017977You decide to see if you can get anything flammable while playing cards. You walk over to a table with 3 people, yank a chair over, and sit down. An encrypted file unlocks, and you remember suddenly how to play cards. You think Doc did that for you."Gentlemen" You say as you sit down. "Would you mind if I joined your game?"A very suave looking young man in a suit with a red tie looks over to you and grins. "Sure thing buddy. You can call my Willie Constaice, professional card shark. These are my associates Dickins and Newt." He says, gesturing to the right and left of him. Dickins is large and bald, somewhat brutish looking with a stylish mustache, while Newt is short and slender with big eyes. "We were just starting another game, care to join in?"
