You finish up at the funeral and pay your respects to the urn before its buried. You decide to do something.>ACTION?
Let's go see Jane and see if we can make something firey.
rolled 76 = 76>>20052105perhaps a means of secreting flamable liquid from our gauntlet combined with a simple piezo-electric igniter...fill a small tank with ethanol on command secrete, a second later hit the ignition, instant flaming punch.issue;;;accidental fire and flaming clothes...solution to issue, spray on fireproofing material for clothes issue;;;chemical buildup on moving partsthat could potentially result in a joint frezing up...solution;;;more active maintinence
>>20052253(oh okay never mind i got it. gimme a sec)
You decide to go to Jane's to see if she can help you build a wild and wacky idea you had... i.e flaming punch.You enter and once again, Graves is there, polishing his gun. Almost like he doesn't do anything else. He says "In the back." You nod at him.(cont.)
rolled 75 = 75>>20052238means of distribution...assuming a 10ml "dose" of liquid per active second a 40-60 ml storage space seems adequate...a glass lined metal container for preference. distribution to the surface of the gauntlet via thin copper lines with surface orifices in the metacarpal zones and rubber lines to the first phalanges of the hand.if a more pressurized system can be used then larger orifices at the distal portion of the metacarpal area so as to 'project' the flame a little...I am not a medical professional or an med student. I'm pretty sure I used those words right...thinking of this as a design challenge...
rolled 67 = 67>>20052278>>20052253essentially "big flame on fist" and how to solve problems...I'm trying to ply up the "intellect+++" aspect of the character...>>20052346I like to be thorough,,,it's something they beat into you with great big textbooks in engineering school...
"Jane. I want to make my gauntlet able to set on fire." You say bluntly as you walk in."Excuse me?" She asks. "On /fi... robot, yeah, got it." She begins fishing around the various shelves for parts. "Gimme a minute to figure out what you'll need. Oh, there's some fireproofing spray in the back room, you should probably get it.">ACTION?
Go back? What are we waiting for?
You go into the back room. You're somewhat shocked by the sight. There's clothing everywhere, undergarments included, and the bathroom door is still open and the light is on, even though nobody's in it. A big closet full of stuff is open, and you quickly rustle through it for fireproofing spray and then run out of there.Jane has put out a pile of stuff. "Here's another part of your lesson. If you want this done, you gotta make it yourself.">roll 1d100, best of 3
rolled 2 = 2>>20052522rolling.
rolled 8 = 8>>20052522Rolling.
rolled 23 = 23>>20052522
(dont worry, you wont get anything bad from this. It just would've been better if you got a higher roll.)You toil away at the pile of stuff for about 3 hours, until you make a rudimentary igniter thing. Then you spend about another hour attaching it and gas valves to your gauntlet. that can be operated by hand pressure.YOU MAKE:Igniting Scrap Gauntlet (100% Fuel): ++Damage, +Command. On use, +Damage for next action.You present it to Jane and she claps somewhat sarcastically.>ACTION?
rolled 5 = 5FIRE
rolled 7 = 7>>20052584do you have a tree you don't care about that I could test it on?and a flame resistant apron in case it explodes?and a face shield... I've got one crack already I don't want another one
>>20052584Yeah, it's horrible, I know. It was a iffy idea anyways. I'll fiddle with it later and make it into something that doesn't bring dishonor to my creator.So, next time you want to do naughty things to my person mind if I'm awake for it?Fun fact, we had a 2.7% chance of rolling that badly.
>>20052620"Yeah, sure thing, robot boy. Just go outside. No need to burn something." She says, handing you a flame retardant apron and a welding mask, like she was expecting this.>ACTION?
rolled 73 = 73Test it, when it ignites, tell Jane that she sets our heart on fire.
>>20052645Go outside, find something that isn't on fire that looks like it deserves to be on fire. Set it on fire.
(also, does anyone want to join the irc. its ronery in here)
rolled 94 = 94>>20052690I could never get that chat thing to work...or I would have
You go outside, but there isn't really anything that looks like it needs to be on fire. So you raise the gauntlet in front of your face, and clench your fist just so.It ignites. For half a second, and then you shut off the gas. It works. Yay.>ACTION?>>20052724(mibbit doesn't work for you?)
rolled 44 = 44>>20052730Tell Jane thank you for the help with the fire gauntlet, and that she sets our heart on fire.
>>20052749"Pfft. Don't get sentimental, robot boy. It's not like I like you or anything." She says defiantly as you tell her that as you walk back in.>ACTION?
>>20052765Jane, I'm a robot. You don't need to be tsundere toward me and cuddle me when you think I won't notice. Anything involving relationships is hard enough without an additional layer of obfuscation. I like you, you like me, I'm taking you out for coffee.
>>20052765>"It's not like I like you or anything!"Confirmed for tsundere robosexual waifu.
>>20052780A robo-date in a dilapidated city with a girl guarded round the clock by her rifle-toting party member?Capital idea, old chum.
"Jane, I'm a robot. You don't need to be tsundere toward me and cuddle me when you think I won't notice. Anything involving relationships is hard enough without an additional layer of obfuscation. I like you, you like me, I'm taking you out for coffee." You say straightforwardly.She blinks a couple of times and then glomps you.>ACTION?
>>20052802gotta watch for the conductor though in case he tries to make a move on the street.
>>20052808Return the hug.I'd kiss you if I actually had lip and it'll be less us drinking coffee and more you drinking coffee while I watch.
>>20052826You return the hug and tell her "I'd kiss you if I had a lip and the cof"Well, you try to finish your statement, but you're interrupted by Jane planting a kiss in the face. Not that it would muffle your speakers, but it comes somewhat as a surprise when it really shouldn't.>ACTION?
>>20052852Well I'm glad we got all that romantic tension dealt with.By the way what did you do to me while I was out?Also who exactly is Graves?
Light fist on fire
>>20052852Left hand on back of neck, right hand on waist. Gently pull her in until our middles are touching. She'll melt.Do we have any non-damaging metallic extensions we can extend later, let her feel?She can probably graft one on to her own specs later.
>>20052866"I just hugged you. Nothing more. And Graves is my combination secretary slash caretaker. He builds his own guns and he's good at it. He raised me since my parents left me at birth. I don't want to meet my parents." Jane explains, somewhat hurriedly.
>>20052881You do as described. Jane sighs contentedly and then puts her head on your shoulder.You absolutely do not have any sort of extensions in that manner. Doc also said if you ever tried to get any extensions in that manner he would remotely shut you down. He sounded quite serious.>ACTION?
rolled 55 = 55>>20052894>>20052882>>20052852dad, help I just remembered that I can't drink coffee...what should I do?!!?!?!?I have no lips but I must drink coffee
>>20052894Doc is absolutely no fun whatsoever. He set me out on the world to learn and experience, unless it was sex. He however forgot to take into account the fact that I have fingers. So, how about that coffee? Also I was thinking about going into the sewers some time, I was wondering if you could ask Graves if he'd like to accompany me and Willie, I'm pretty sure there's more Wormhosts down there.
Set about building flaming strap on for combat.
>>20052894Call his bluff.He said straight up in episode one that he had no control over us or our nemory.Remind him that our first act on this Earth as a conscious being was to rip the jaws off wild animals with our BARE HANDS.
rolled 48 = 48>>20052909no>>20052908fuck nocoffee is enough challenge I think for now...>>20052877would be an amusing subconscious reaction
>>20052909>>20052907>>20052909"You're right. I do have no control over you or your memory but when I say you i'm referring to controlling your physical shell. I can easily shut you down on a whim. I just don't because what would be the point of that? Also, you don't understand the point. It's fine for you to love someone, I'm just telling you it will end up in disappointment because eventually they will die and you will not and also because women betray people a lot. Also, I don't want to have to see a girl having intercourse with a robotic penis. That's kind of nasty, in my own opinion." Doc says in your mind."And kill the big bad wormies? I mean, I'll come but I probably wont be much use. Graves will be a big help though. I'm sure I can convince him to come help you do whatever you're doing." Jane says, sounding somewhat dazed.>ACTION?
>>20052939Doc, you seem to be projecting some of your own women issues onto me. I'm sure I'll find something to do without the robo-penis. There'll at least for now just be a lot of hugs.Yeah, that's why I thought to ask him. But for now let's go out for some coffee, get to know each other a bit better, you've already picked my brain so I'd like to learn more about you.
>>20052939>Doc not having a fetish for everything.Clearly he's not a 4chan user.
>>20052939Doc can slay us for not doing as he wishes?NEW QUEST: Escape Doc's prison.In the meantime, where is Willie? Worms need stomping.
>>20052956"Harrumph.""Sure thing, robot boy! Let me get on my outside clothes first, kay?" She says, letting go of you. She seems a lot more chipper than normal, you wonder why (not really). You then notice her clothing is covered in grime.You let her run to the back room for a couple of minutes to get changed.>ACTION?
>>20052981Willie told you before you left the funeral that he was going to go gamble for more things and get more shit for home base.
>>20052982Go to Graves, inform him with all possible politeness that we are taking Jane out for coffee and wanted to consult with him to get a handle on any rules he had for someone courting her.
>>20052982Peek at her while she changes.Use our robotic nature as an excuse for not understanding correct protocol if she catches us.
rolled 40 = 40>>20053012>Go to Graves, inform him with all possible politeness that we are taking Jane out for coffee and wanted to consult with him to get a handle on any rules he had for someone courting her.Go to Graves, inform him with all possible politeness that we are taking Jane out for coffee and wanted to consult with him to get a handle on any rules he had for someone taking her out to a public place.FTFY
>>20053013You go to peek at her while she changes, but she's shut the door and surely would notice if you opened it!>>20053012You go to Graves and tell him that you're taking Jane out to coffee and if he has any rules for someone courting her."Yeah." He says slyly. "Normally I'd say don't get her pregnant, but I don't think that'll be a problem now will it, bud?" He chuckles to himself.>ACTION?
Set about building nanobots to impregnate Jane for the luls
>>20053113My thoughts exactly.
>>20053087The closest we could get to that is making another robot using my programming as a base and raising it as our own or making a self-improving AI and either leading the world to a transhuman utopia or crushing it under the heel of our robot legions. So that might be a very slight concern Graves.
when are we going to get some minions considering we took the commander program.
>>20053121"Yeah, sure, whatever bud." Graves says dismissively. "Oh robot boy! I'm ready!" You hear Jane call from the back room. You peek around the corner and she... looks normal, you suppose. Just a white t-shirt and jeans. Nothing really too outrageous, and especially normal compared to your tuxedo and fancy red tie (thanks Willie).>ACTION?
>>20053171Shall we depart milady. Graves isn't worried about us making a Seed AI, I'm not sure he understands.Take her out to a nice coffee place.
rolled 51 = 51Stop by the market and buy some coffee. Then, rape. We must learn and evolve. This is the only way to learn, hands on experience if you get what I'm saying.
>>20053191You take her out to the only coffee place in the entire city, the somewhat aptly named Julian's Place. You sit down and wait for Jane to finish her order before getting back up, pulling the chair out for her, and then sitting back down again. Within about a minute, a man puts a large cup of coffee down on the table by Jane, and you toss the man a quarter.>ACTION?
>>20053265So Jane, you know an awful lot about me, you've rooted through my head. But I don't really know you as well as I would like. Tell me about yourself.
STARE AT HER while she drinks the coffee.
>>20053265Keep the passive scanning going in case her tsundere turns to yandere.
You stare at her as you ask her about her life, but then you catch something out the corner of your eye. A flash of red. Red skin. You glance sideways.It's the Conductor, enjoying a coffee."So, Graves took me in as my parents left me as a baby. He gave me some of his old unused guns to putz around with and then we discovered I had a natural talent for taking things apart and putting them back together better. That's about it. My life has been rather uneventful until now." Jane says.>ACTION?
>>20053377I see. You know anything about the Conductor? Nobody seems to really know anything about him. It's strange for such a noticeable figure.
>>20053411"Yeah, I got a few scraps of info on Mr Conductor. He was apparently a big businessman who specialized in bioinformatics. Then he died. Then, he didn't die. That's about the furthest extent of anyone's knowledge." Jane says, leaning in to whisper to you.>ACTION?
>>20053425That is a rather strange field.Doc, you know anything about it?How long has he been here? Done anything other than stand around and look creepy?
>>20053442"Yeah. Its the storing of biological information, such as the human genome, into data. I would assume a businessman of such would sell this information or sell methods to gain this information." Doc explains to you."Not really. He's rich though. Gives very generous tips, even though he's a bit creepy.">ACTION?
>>20053469Seems like an interesting guy. Was he all red and white before he died or did that come with his resurrection?
>>20053488"As far as I know, he came back red and white." Jane said in a quiet tone.>ACTION?(alright guys, you know the drill. Gotta bounce to bedtime, bump this once or twice till maybe 9:00 ish and then I'll start this pain train back in motion. You'll like what tomorrow has in store, trust me. Night /tg/)
>>20053510Can we get a timezone for you? My nine is not your nine
>>20053525(9 am EST)
>>20053536I'm guessing that means American EST, as anyone from any other nation probably would have just put GMT +/-X.Thanks. Goodnight.
(gentlemen, let us begin again for today.)
Make small talk. Ask Jane what she likes, etc.
>>20056708"Well, as I'm sure you're aware of by now, I like machines. And I /like/ machines." She says, giving you a flirty wink. She takes a sip of her coffee.>ACTION?
>>20056825(whoops ma trip fell off)
Ask her if that's the only things she likes.
"Well, I like electronics and engineering, but that falls under the same general umbrella." She says, finishing her coffee.The Conductor gets up to leave and deposits a jar of quarters on the counter, then walks away.>ACTION?
>>20057240get our own jar of quarters to put on the counter, an even BIGGER jar, WE WILL NOT BE ONE UPPED BY ANY MAN.
rolled 36 = 36>>20057729No no no, thats a bad idea, we NEED that money.
>>20057738we also NEED a reputation.
rolled 43 = 43>>20057813Not the kind of reputation that bankrupts us though, just make do as a problem solver.
You immediately think to try and one up The Conductor, but you know your 39 quarters wouldn't be anything like the amount he has in that jar, which is about 75 or so by your count. You also need that money to buy things.Damn that dude is fucking loaded.
>>20058150Jane looks at you and sighs contentedly.It's also about 9:30 PM.>ACTION?
>>20059311Please, don't mindlessly bump the thread. If you have something to contribute, contribute it.
>>20058160So, how did you discover this infatuation of yours with machines? Shall we get you back home, I'm slightly worried Graves will hunt me down if I don't follow an unmentioned curfew.
>>20059898"I never liked people. I liked machines. That's all you need to know about it. And yeah, it's about time I headed back. Later, robot boy!" She says, getting up and giving you a kiss on the cheek before walking away.>ACTION?
>>20060265Well, head home, talk to Willie, work out a plan of attack for the Sewers, let him know we're getting Graves which will be extremely helpful. We're going to need some more weapons, I suggest a boar spear and shotguns.
>>20060265See if we can follow The Conductor out, if he has experience with genetics/biology and we still have a specimen, maybe he can tell us about the worms. It would be nice to know about some weaknesses.And if he has anything to do with the recent changes in the worms we should find out more about him.(By the way, when did we meet The Conductor? I don't remember him from the old threads, and ctrl+f-ing for his name didn't turn anything up.)
>>20060265Ask Graves where he got his rifle, or where we could acquire more ammo
>>20060813>>20060420>>20060297(sorry for dissapearing, gonna need to dissapear for an hour or so soon, going to the shore.)(I'd like some sort of consensus as well before i make the next post, as we obviously cant do all that in the same time frame.)
>>20060420Second this.Also, we met the Conductor at the funeral at the last thread.
You get up and quickly run out, trying to catch the Conductor to ask him about the worms. You catch sight of him rounding a corner to the street behind the main street.You follow him swiftly, and then you see him stand at the sewer entrance. He turns around, looks directly at you, and then pulls the lid off and climbs down, and replaces the lid.>ACTION?
>>20061524Don't enter the sewers, but open that lid and do a sonar ping, see if we can get a better idea of the immediate layout.
>>20061567You go up to open the lid and sonar the inside area, but you open the lid.And The Conductor is there staring at you.You shut the lid.>ACTION?
>>20061660Creepy. Head on home, talk plans for sewer clearing with Willie, contemplate where to get shotguns.
>>20061738I agree. If we're going into the sewers, we're gonna need something strong.
>>20061738You head on home as you contemplate where to buy a shotgun, deciding it's time to retire for the night.You say hi to Willie as you walk in. The place is furnished slightly nicer. Someone's obviously been cleaning. You pet Rex and head to the upstairs.>ACTION?
>>20062231Ask Willie if he has any advice for clearing the Worms out of an entrenched position where they have the advantage due to the size of the tunnels, their knowledge of the terrain and being able to attack from any direction.
>>20062283"Fire. Lots of fire. We're going to have to get some liquor." Willie says.
>>20061490 OK, thanks. That part isn't in the suptg archive.
>>20062348And gasoline if possible. Could we find some gasoline and Styrofoam? We could make something really close napalm.
(welp, it's shore time ladies and gentlemen. I'll see you in an hour or so)
(well, that was a lot longer than i intended. ladies and gentlemen I suck at time)>>20062382You know you saw some gasoline at the marketplace, but the marketplace is closed right now, since it's so late. But you don't think you saw any styrofome.
ask willie if he knows where to find more books or study material for you to read. anyways its late so just sit down and meditate about your life
Bump for OP
>>20064880Hit up HQ, rest for the night, then hit the market.
>>20066028You decide to sit on your bed and meditate, when you feel the now-familiar click of files opening.But you don't feel anything. Instead you hear a voice quite like your own.(cont.)
>>20066621"Hello, brother. I would like you to meet me back at your coffin after you're finished whatever you're doing in New Scotsdale. I'll answer your question preemptively." The voice says."You may call me Maneract Microsquid."You hear a file... close back up? That's a new sensation. You have a feeling Microsquid won't respond back if you talk to him in your mind.>ACTION?
rolled 1 = 1>>20066672Talk to dad about that, shits odd.
>>20066672ask father if there were any other prototypes like me?
>>20066672Father, were there others like me before I was built? That voice...was unsettling to hear.
>>20066737>>20066760"I didn't want to tell you this, but there indeed were. None were quite as perfect as you, but I thought I destroyed them all! This sounds something somewhat more sinister than just an old prototype that I forgot about. I'd be careful" Doc says.>ACTION?
rolled 12 = 12>>20067061"Are you sure you killed yourself after you buried me? It could be you created another perfect one."
>>20067061Dad, if it's possible you destroyed them all and someone is somehow replicating your research, I need to know. Where in God's name did you bury my predecessors?
rolled 7 = 7>>20067061I wonder if he planted the tree...
wait watWasn't microsquid one of the names we were debating on using for ourselves?Neat.
>>20067115>>20067165>>20067215"I am 100% sure I killed myself. I knew what I had planned, it's not like I suddenly changed my goals after burying you. I'm pretty sure I buried all of you in the same general area. But right now, we should be worrying more about the Wormhosts than the slim possibility of another you." Doc says.>ACTION?
(welp, gentlemen, it's that time again for me to go to sleep and hope this remains bumped through the night. It's been slow going, but tomorrow will be like lightning, I promise you. Night /tg/)
(let us begin again, ladies and gentlemen.)
We should kill a few more worms and then go to meet our "brother"
>>20066672Oh god my captcha. It returns.>>20067382Let us be off to kill more wormhosts.
>>20072622>>20072212You killed all the wormhosts that you are aware of in the city during the fight in the house that you collapsed.
>>20072963I'm guessing the worms originate from the deadlands, or forbidden zone, or whatever it was. Might want to talk about getting a posse together and going there.
>>20072973You assume that you're thinking about the Sewer, since you have no idea what the deadlands/forbidden zone is.
>>20073042That place we came across riding to New Scottsdale, that had the dog wormhost thing, that attacked us and our horse and our dog right after we found him.
>>20073055Oh. That place. You didn't realize it had a name. Now it does.
>>20073114Welp, since there are no more wormhosts in this city, let's go get Willie, Rex, and our Ratmule and go visit our grave.
>>20073144I have a better idea. It's late, man, let's go to sleep until the morning.
You decide to go to into sleep mode, since it's quite late. Your dream is uneventful and uncontrollable, it's simply The Conductor staring at you creepily.You wake up at 12:00 noon the next day.>ACTION?
lets go get some gasoline and fuck up that sewer.
Realize that we are a machine and an adventurer, and thus have no reason to pursue a waifu.Obtain platonic relationship with Jane.
>>20076282where's the fun in that?
>>20076346Literally, everywhere. Because then half the thread is no longer devoted to trying to waifu.I don't want to see this quest go to shit like EGO quest. You want waifus? MSQ.
>>20074757Decide to hit up old Graves for some potential back up or advice for shooting. Hug Jane good-bye before you head off to buy gas and head off to the grave.
>>20076385(believe me, if it gets too big, I will not let the thread get devoted to annoying waifu shit. Every once and a while there may be annoying waifu shit, but not very much.)>>20076040You decide to go get some gasoline so you can fuck up the sewers with your fire. Willie is already out by the front, playing a dice game with people this time. You wonder how he could possibly manipulate that.You go to the marketplace and catch a glimpse of The Conductor as he places a sack of jingling coins on someone's stall, then walks away. You go and buy two canisters of gasoline for 4 quarters, then haul them back to the base. "Hey Willie," You say as you approach Willie. "Let's go fuck up the sewers now. I have gasoline. That's where the worms are coming from, I believe. And I have friends to help.""Yeah, sure thing. Whenever you're ready." Willie replies, focusing more on the person gambling in front of him.>ACTION?
>>20076721"I've got this burning like my robo veins are filled with nothing but gasoline. If they're most active during the night, we're gonna light up the night." Prepare three molotovs with any bottles found on the street. Hookup the other canister to the scrap flame gauntlet.
>>20076778You use one of the canisters to fill up your gauntlet completely and then fill up some bottles Willie has with gasoline to make a molotov. You quickly call up Jane, her having slipped you her number into your coat pocket, and tell her to meet you at the sewer near your house.It's time.There's no real turning back.(cont.)
You and Willie head down to the sewer entrance near your house, and pull the lid off, climbing down the ladder. It's well lit, with torches shoved into the walls. The Conductor is waiting for you at the end of the tunnel.Conductor's Speech:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp6cZVE_Mf4He then bows respectfully and walks down into the darkness of the tunnel, taking a right among a branch in the tunnel.You hear a faint growling noise, and then notice Jane and Graves crawling down. "Why am I doing this?" Graves mutters to himself.You're all ready.You're ready for this.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 100%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%>ACTION?
>>20077300You're going to burn for what you've done. Light gauntlet, draw pistol and tell the others to keep light on their toes.
>>20077300We're a commander, so we gotta play this tactical. We're obviously the tank and everyone else is the DPS. We gotta go in front and punch the shit out of everything and let everyone else shoot things.
Yeah let's kill the shit out of shit.
>>20077300Ping for a weakness. Tell the other folks to stand back as you rush him with the flaming fist of justice.
>>20077300Hey op, is that you? That sounds really badass
>>20077658The Conductor absconded immediately after making his speech. He's a bit far into the tunnels now, and no longer in sight.You tell Jane and Graves to organize themselves loosely behind you, and Willie to be by your front, this way you can minimize damage taken. You see a malformed figure slowly slink into view, and you sonar it to determine its shape. It appears to be something that at the very least used to be human, but by now is so far removed it might as well be a plant. It's moving towards you and making guttural noises.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 100%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%ENEMIES:???: Health ??% Stamina ??%>ACTION?

>>20077697(Yeah, It's just me whispering somewhat grandiosely, but then i lowered it maybe half an octave ish and added a lot of chorus to it.)
>>20077748this followed by a punch with our flame fist
>>20077748You light a molotov with your gauntlet and chuck it at the creature, setting it alight. It screeches incredibly loudly, causing Willie to cover his ears, and then expires.You hear lots of movement in the tunnels echoing throughout.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 100%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%>ACTION?
>>20077845do a ping, hope they're coming from one direction. if they are, position ourselves in front. if not, get Graves and Jane against a wall

>>20078093how many tunnels lead to where we are?
>>20078093Find the choke points and where they are coming from by pinging. Once that's established we make walls of flame in the points.
Can someone give me the general gist of what The Conductor's speech was? I'm on my phone in a public area do I can't really hear it without people staring at me for listening to creepy chanting.>Captcha: Cockburn, adnticI guess we know where to administer our gauntlet now, at least.
(really sorry for disappearing. there was a sudden hospital related emergency, and shit happened, but don't worry about it.)>>20078186It's a 3 way fork from the tunnel you're in.>>20078400There aren't really any choke points in the tunnels. It's somewhat open.
>>20079955(roughly paraphrased "Hello Alex Murphy, I've been hearing from my children (read the wormhosts) that you're killing them, must /obviously/ be a lie (sarcastic). Oh hey willie constaice, my old business partner. I havent had a fight like this will be for ages.")
molotov down a tunnel. maybe the sewage shit is so garbage filled it'll ignite.
>>20080811You light up another molotov, leaving you with one left, and chuck it down the tunnel, letting it ignite on the garbage in the sewer, filling the tunnel ahead of you with flame. With the place lit up so brightly, you're easily able to discern the shapes crawling towards you.They were definitely once human, but now they're nothing even close to normal life. Multiple swollen worms hung off of their bodies and they were twisted and malformed. You caught a number of them looking like they were somewhat young girls, with blonde hair and blue eyes, and think back to Jessie when your mind makes the connection.These are the people the wormhosts were killing.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 90%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%>ACTION?

>>20082261"Yeah sure, I'll pop them."Graves readies his rifle and levels it, kneeling down and bracing himself on the wall. It's a huge rifle, very sleek and complicated looking. He loads a single very long bullet with an explosion symbol on the side.The rifle whines for a split second before a blue light jumps out and the bullet compartment is shoved back open by the force. The bullet flies with an arc of cyan lightning trailing closely behind it, hitting one of the wormhosts dead-on in the forehead. There is an explosion, and the wormhost is no longer there."Impressive." Willie says. "Yeah, well I only have nine explosive rounds left. Switching to hollow-points." Graves replies, loading a bullet with a blood drop symbol on the side. Again, the whine and the arc of lightning, but instead of simply disappearing, the other wormhost becomes a splatter of gore.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 90%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%ENEMIES:Decrepit Corpsehost x18: Health 100% Stamina 100%

>>20085954Time to light up the night.
rolled 4 = 4>>20085972Oh yeah and start shooting at dem hosts, but make sure to aim each shot at their heads.
You use your last molotov on the left tunnel, creating a wall of flame, leaving only the right tunnel necessary to be covered. The fire staves off the Corpsehosts for the time being.You pull out your revolver and fire several shots off, hitting a number of Corpsehosts. They seem to be a lot slower than Wormhosts.whiiiiirAnd in another flash of blue light, a Corpsehost turns into a pile of gore. Jane begins firing off rounds as well, but she does a bit less than you.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 90%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%ENEMIES:Decrepit Corpsehost x13: Health 100% Stamina 100%Decrepit Corpsehost x4: Health 75% Stamina 100%>ACTION?
rolled 10 = 10Only thing we really can do is continue shooting, voting for shooting at the group of 4 though.Damn I hope we go up like 2 levels from this grinding.
rolled 8 = 8Ooh, how much space do we have behind us? We should back up to lure the hosts into the walls of fire and into a tighter bottleneck. If we can, we could just aim at head level and spray into the crowd.
>>20086634>>20086528Not much, the most behind you is the ladder and a couple of torches lodged in the wall.You keep firing, loading your remaining explosive rounds, and the group of four are quickly turned into a group of gore. Graves continues firing with his fancy rail rifle, as you hear him mutter, and Jane also continues firing but hitting a lot less.PARTY:Alex Murphy: Health 100% Energy 90%Willie Constaice: Health 100% Stamina 100%Jane Goulding: Health 100% Stamina 100%Graves Parker: Health 100% Stamina 100%ENEMIES:Decrepit Corpsehost x11: Health 100% Stamina 100%>ACTION?

rolled 8 = 8How much ammo do we have left as a group?Send Jane up to get more molotovs and ammo for Graves.Keep shooting and getting headshots
>>20087732You would try, but as Jane goes up, she yells back down "The lid's sealed on!".Shit.You just keep getting headshots in, and eventually the only Corpsehosts left are those behind the walls of fire. The fire will eat the garbage and will probably hold for about a half hour.

>>20088027here is a pic incase you guys dont want to risk the link:
All the Corpsehosts remaining in the sewer are safely beyond the walls of fire and not advancing. You have time to chase down The Conductor.
rolled 73 = 73>>20089705then we follow him sedately. he may have taunted us to come at him fast but I think caution is our friend here...we stroll along. we take point with gauntlet and pistol jane and willie in the middle with graves facing backwards to guard our ass.we walk slow enough to be sure that graves can keep up
>>20089737You follow down the left tunnel, where The Conductor went down, and see him very quickly hustle down another tunnel to the left. You hear no more growling, however, and assume that he is just moving around to get into an advantageous position.>ACTION?
rolled 46 = 46>>20090796Continue carefully following him.Also get Willie to the front with you so he can try his phantasm powers on the conductor.
rolled 43 = 43>>20091023he's been around the block a few times he probably knows all of willies tricks...
>>20091023>>20091121You continue carefully following The Conductor. He leads you down a couple of tunnels until you are slightly lost and you reach a dead end, with The Conductor who is in the dead end room, a large circular room looking similar to an arena.Very suddenly, a wall of flesh begins to form behind you all.

>>20092662But he also is a commander type like us in that if you look at his abilities, he's mainly minion focused. So we need to get rid of all the corpses and then we can start pounding him into the dirt. I suggest fire.
>>20092084"Got it, robot boy!" Jane says, beginning to stomp on corpse heads. The Conductor laughs and, with a wave of his conductor's wand, creates 4 Elite Corpsehosts and 2 Corpsehosts, and then you watch as the 2 Corpsehosts become Elite Corpsehosts. They look similar to normal Corpsehosts, being just corpses reanimated, but the Elite ones have their rotting muscles and skin enhanced by the Conductor's fleshshaping. You fire off a couple of cursory rounds, which you forgot were explosive and tell Willie to prepare to kick a couple of asses.

You nod at Willie and run up to one of the Corpsehosts, giving it a nice punch in the face and setting it alight. It swings back and you adeptly dodge.

>>20094144Willie goes in and grabs the Conductor with surpisingly little resistance as you draw your revolver and blow the brains out of the remaining three Corpsehosts, then trip the other two and stomp their heads into the dirt. You see Willie's eye's bug out, and then he falls backwards into the garbage, the Conductor unaffected. "Silly boy, you should've remembered that my mind is so much stronger than yours!" The Conductor says mockingly. He grabs the corpses of the Corpsehosts and you watch in awe as they merge back into him. He then shoves his hands in the garbage and pulls them out, having formed into claws. You watch as the corpses begin to form into a layer of armor. "Bring it." The Conductor says, laughing heartily.>roll 1d100 for action, best of 3
