http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20169438/The Brood has witnessed the rebirth of the Xel'Naga, the parents of our Father. They have returned with a fleet of nearly 200 worldships, and have decided to test our claim to Perfection.We have passed two of their three physical tests. One remains, followed by the psionic and essence tests.Of course, we have nukes ready, if we decide not to keep dancing.
>>20268058DANCE! I COMMAND IT! Also let's add the CORE fleet to the "just in case it goes wrong" plan.
>>20268113You'd like to send more of Cyberbrate's Love Muffins toward the Cube?
Depending on how long it took to move the Nebula, can we (seeing as stalling for time was one of our goals) get some info on what (if any) projects we started in those weeks/months have borne fruit?Not sure if we ever got consensus for them, but I think the suggestions were:Messing with arbiter stasis technology to make moon-crackers.Making Protoss Hybrids.Armoring a heighliner better or making a few slipspace-capable love-muffins.Weaponizing emotions and concepts. (Yes, I am serious about that. It's no more unfeasible than an overwhelming sensor lock from a modern battleship is. At least unless CAnon says it is. :P)
>>20268120I think he meant we should simply remember that we have the option of false-flagging attacks as CORE, Terrans or Protoss, but mainly CORE.
>>20268120Well, in the general area of, and have then stalk the worldships from a couple of light years away.
This thread would be far more effective if it wasn't leaked 2 years ago that the Zerg end up as space whales floating free and magical through the cosmos.
>>20268137>Messing with arbiter stasis technology to make moon-crackers.How would we do that?>Making Protoss Hybrids.Labbrate is setting up cloning bays for its Protoss right now. All of its cloned Protoss are integrating perfectly into the Swarm. Nargil still has not solved its giant brain problem.>Armoring a heighliner better or making a few slipspace-capable love-muffins.Nobody but you suggested this, and Accountantbrate reminds us that the "slipspace-capable" part is what makes the heighliners so damned expensive to begin with.>Weaponizing emotions and concepts.No. I used this as a specific example of why something was impossible. I have no idea how you came to the conclusion that this was a reasonable request.>>20268196I don't know what you're talking about at all. Even if that's...somehow the canon ending, which would be retarded, we've disregarded pretty much all of Blizzard's post-Brood War canon entirely, and adapted most of what's left.
>>20268239I'd say we disregarded Brood War cannon too, What with the UED actually having a fleet, and no pair of crystals that power a planet cleaner.
>>20268239>Messing with arbiter stasis technology to make moon-crackers.For example: Stasis-beams that rotate around eachother, tearing a hole through the entire planet (assuming we can stretch the stasis field that far) as the affected area is forced to come to a stop compared to the rest of it.It's just an example. Now that I think about it, why not just ask Labrate if he can come up with weapons that could feasibly threaten a planet-sized ship.>Nobody but you suggested this, and Accountantbrate reminds us that the "slipspace-capable" part is what makes the heighliners so damned expensive to begin with.I didn't say it wasn't a minority-choice. :P (And the expense is why we only make 1-2, as opposed to a full dozen. But seriously, we do need something that doesn't die from a scratch. o.o)>Weaponizing emotions and concepts.D'aw... But the Emperor does it, with his emitting of overwhelming awe or simply injecting mind-numbingl fear into enemies. But okay, I'll give it up. x)Can we use regular psychological warfare psionically? Like obscene amounts of white noise (or the sound of scratching, crawling? I may be taking too many hints from Tyranids, but it feels like this is the kinda stuff we'd be stupid not to do)?
>>20268350I used the UED, Duran, valkyries, Zakuras, and the shipyards, though. That's got to count for something.
>>20268391Don't you mean Shakuras, as opposed to Zhakul, the archive/library planet.
>>20268468Yeah, that one. Too many -aku- planets.
>>20268391It's kinda funny that we decided to nuke Duran to all holy hell just because it might have made things really really complicated in the future. Well, that and he didn't really have anything useful to offer us aside from "HEY GUYS! I'M GONNA FORM MY OWN INDEPENDENT BROOD! TOTALLY NOT GOING TO BITE YOU GUYS IN THE ASS AFTERWARDS, I SWEAR!"
>>20268516Yeah, it didn't help that Bernie had just been all uppity.Of course, Kerrigan has her own Brood, and that hasn't bitten us in the ass...(If you guys want to ask the Xel'Naga for the next test, we can do that, by the by)
>>20268600I say we ask them for the last test.
>>20268600Oh, I thought it was coming already. My bad, I should have said ask for the next test, and hope it's dancing.
>>20268600Yes, let's do that.Can we ask Labrate if the stasis-cannon is feasible, or if he can come up with a moon-cracker of his own (maybe something like the NOVA-bomb from the Halo novels that multiplies the power of a number of nukes, or simply a massive yet small-bore yamato cannon capable of cutting through it in no time)?Can he also prepare a number of theoretical tests and responses for the other tests in the meantime? If he doesn't have the brainpower to spare, can we lease some of our humans (infested or not) to do it?
>>20268627If things don't resolve favorably in another quest, I think there will be plenty of *dancing* to come.
>>20268616>>20268627The Maker speaks to us:"You have passed the first two physical tests, proving your mastery of beasts and of the heavens, both large threats, but the final test is against a microscopic enemy: a plague that will ravage your forces. Already, the probes that carry it approach your worlds."(Roll 6d100)
>>20268679Labbrate informs us that using stasis that way isn't feasible. It tends to engulf a full object, and has some clear size limits with an arbiter's power source.

>>20268756A plague against the Zerg. LOL, do the Xel'naga even realize what we are?Our immune system will wipe that out easy enough.
>>20268820>>20268812Mere seconds after the Xel'Naga speaks, craft fall from the skies above Xenta, Yoshus, Umoja, Tarsonis, and Dagobah.One appears over Moria, but, as has periodically happened since the heighliner incident, the craft came out of warp horribly mangled, and is destroyed by Terran defensive measures before it can reach the atmosphere.Across our worlds, we feel a foreign presence crawling, squirming in hundreds of thousands of skins...including almost all of our cerebrates, and even ourself.We have been infected.
>>20268952Get Labrate and Nargil on this. This is a test of the Zerg, and we will not fail.
>>20268952Good thing it's just DANCE FEVER! Bust a move! Then panic. Also, we should be overly dramatic about it, and if only there were some awesome cerebrate who specialized in biological research that could save us all.
>>20268945Nargil says near enough the same thing, and begins cycling through standard immune responses.Labbrate takes tissue samples, just in case.(Roll 2d100 to see how things look!)
>>20268945The Xel'naga created the Zerg. I'm sure they can cook up nasty infections that can strain even a Zerg's immune system to the breaking point.

>>20269032>>20269036Nargil begins its standard immune responses to infection. After about 20 minutes, we still feel sick, and Nargil is very flustered. It tells us that it has encountered hard-to-fight infections in the past, and has a few more extreme measures to try.Labbrate's culture samples come back with frightening results. The samples have all grown great, hairy green lesions. Labbrate suspects that this disease might begin to cause death in our larvae within the hour, and the smaller Zerg not long after that. It begins work immediately on a cure.(Another 2d100 to see how their respective efforts fare)
rolled 44, 99 = 143>>20269210This does not bode well.
>>20269210Could it be that the Xel'naga's greatest bioweapon is to turn us all into Oscar the Grouch? After which we will all be grumpy and uncooperative and living in trash cans, and thus be generally apathetic towards resisting any attempts to conquer us?

>>20269245Labrate to the rescue, that's really going to annoy Nargil.
>>20269210C'mon, Labby and Nargy.Also, we desperately need to do something about our cerebrates being infected nigh-instantly. Is it a psionic parasite, or does our quarantine suck?Because we don't have to say we want our important assets quarantined the moment we heard about that test, right?Right...?(Damnit, the stupid thing didn't post. >.<)
>>20269320I'm probably going to go with "Xel'naga SCIENCE!". The sci-fi version of "it's magic, I don't gotta explain shit."
>>20269245>>20269281Nargil becomes increasingly panicked as its immune responses fail to contain the disease, which it tells us is spreading into the Creep and across all of our colonies on the affected worlds.Labbrate, on the other hand, has some great success in controlling the infection's growth in the lab, though it hasn't managed to stop it. It continues to work on it samples.Nargil immediately begins mutating glands that secrete Labbrate's medicines, regardless of how incomplete they are.(You can roll 1d100 to keep Labbrate working, unless you've got some other solution in mind)>>20269320(We probably would have quarantined them, had there been more than about 10 seconds' warning...)
rolled 100 = 100>>20269434
rolled 70 = 70>>20269434Keep working Labbrate! You can do it!
>>20269479Dude, that's awesome.I am having trouble quitting laughing.
>>20269337"It's magic, I don't gotta explain shit" is stupid no matter how you put it.If magic is a plot point of a large story, you need at least a basic theory of how it works so that your story doesn't devolve to "why doesn't he wave his fingers and make sh*t happen".Especially in ANY medium where the protagonists themselves use magic, even more so in a science fiction quest where EVERYTHING that happens has implications beyond the obvious..At the very least you have to explain what they can or can't do. If you just go "it's magic, I don't gotta explain shit" it removes all Willing Suspension of Disbelief, and leaves a very poor story that is hard to get interested in since it consists of nothing save "What Asspull will the writer use to save/wreck the day this time?".(Note that characters in a medium might have the "Magic is magic, it's not science" (Because it's totally science. EVERYTHING with an effect is science) opinion, but if the author has it, it quickly goes to sh*t.)
>>20269434>(We probably would have quarantined them, had there been more than about 10 seconds' warning...)Ah, well, that explanation satisfies me. :3However, since your time is limited, can we set up a general "Development Community" among our terrans (or even our infested terrans, depending on how much of their minds are still there) that can research everything the same way modern humanity does today?That way your not-infinite-time doesn't impact the story as much and we can have stuff developed in the background without having to detract from the main narrative (and won't have to fall into pitfalls of "we suck at that because we didn't devote half a thread to it" when there are ridiculously many (hundreds, maybe thousands that even I can see, and I'm the founder of a religion for crazy people. :P) potential research paths we should be pursuing at all times.
>>20269637I'm pretty sure the Morians are doing just that. Granted they're probably focusing more on resource extraction and industry, and will only tell us what they're working on if we ask them to, but I always assumed that the Morians are trying to be the most useful and productive client state possible. Since, I assume anyway, Sakai is smart enough to know that their continued existence rests solely on how we feel about them.
>>20269520>a science fiction quest where EVERYTHING that happens has implications beyond the obviousA matter of perspective. Half the time, I worry my plot twists are too retardedly easy to see coming.As to the rest, I generally agree, though I hasten to point out that a lot of "I aint gotta explain shit" justifications come from writers who just don't want to spend all their time writing out the complex metaphysical interactions that govern the internal workings of a fictional universe. Is there a good in-universe reason that lightsabers only go out three feet? Sure. Should Lucas have let people define it as a weird diamond-intensified arc welder instead of saying "I aint gotta explain shit"? I think not, because the concept was cool and internally consistent without it, and the explanation merely adds a new layer of questions, like how an arc welder can beat on another arc welder like lightsabers do, which just leads to retarded canon bloat.>>20269472(Pic related)Labbrate has a breakthrough. It immediately gives Nargil its cure, and glands develop across our worlds distributing it both to units, and to the Creep. We lost several larvae, more than the Zerg have lost to disease in a millennium, but we have cured this plague and passed our test.The Xel'Naga smiles when we inform him."You have done well. We expect no less. Next, you will face our psionic test. Are you prepared, Cerebrate?"
>>20269727We are. I think.
>>20269727I get the feeling that those questions are rhetorical and are in no way actually supposed to be answered anything other than "yes".
>>20269727"As ready as the star is to go supernova once it has reached the end of its lifespan."
>>20269727I love you too CA.
>>20269760>>20269763>>20269777"This test is simple. We shall pool our psionic strength against you in several ways. If you retain control of yourself and your minions, you pass the test. Are you ready to begin?"
>>20269836Lets begin.>>we have probably already begun
>>20269836Quick turn on the emitters.
>>20269836Get a couple Psi Emitters online, as well as the emergency ones around our Cerebrates.
>>20269688Great, let's ask them what they're up to and seed more humans on other worlds so that we have a large scientific community.And, as the initial suggestion was, start corporations of our own among them with the aim of military, social and medical superiority for either or both races in mind.In short: Research the living sh*t out of EVERYTHING!AT THE SAME TIME!IN THE BACKGROUND!OF THE NARRATIVE!TO BE PULLED OUT AS NEEDED!>>20269727Excellent example! No, he doesn't have to explain HOW it works, but he does have to explain WHAT it does (which he did, aka melt through nearly everything in short order save X materials.).The readers can come up with theories and conclusions of their own from there (X materials have Y and Z in common. Not necessarily correct, but fun and helps build immersion), it's one of the ways a fictional world can really take on a life of its own.(In fact, I think the Expanded Universe explained somewhere that the name 'Lightsaber' is a bit misleading as they're plasma tubes in electro-magnetic containment fields or something or something like that.)>Are you prepared, Cerebrate?Probably not, but let's not tell them that. Would rather spend at least a week more exploring our protoss.(Actually, since our protoss has far more experience using psionics to affect things rather than communication, can pull some quick science (or maybe we researched in the background) to channel our potential better or potentially allow our infested Protoss to turn into Archons?)>>20269836Ask for a few moments (have emitters brought to us. Maybe they can give us a +modifier. :3) and then brace ourselves.
>>20269879Stop over thinking this. You're trying too hard to "win. This is Zerg Quest, something started on a drunken lark. Don't take it too seriously.

>>20270039This is Zerg Quest, Henrik. Not Muv Luv.We are not making the Beta.
>>20270039I said we should have started practicing after we turned bernie into a cube, but no one else wanted to vote to explore our new found power of telekinesis.
>>20269879>>20269868>>20269862We activate Psi Emitters next to each of our cerebrates, tell Kerrigan to batten down the hatches, and tell the Xel'Naga that we're ready.Immediately, worldships set off from their perches over the Cube. Not long after, they appear over our major worlds, and we start to feel a sort of psionic buzzing.(Can we do 13d100? Let's see.)

>>20270191>>20270195The buzzing intensifies throughout our Swarm, centered around our cerebrates! Kerrigan reports feeling it, as well, though she manages to keep control of herself without any help.Most of our cerebrates, their Psi Emitters pumping our presence into them, maintain contact, but Warbrate, Accountantbrate, Defensebrate, and Salem Saberhagen all drop out of our minds.This is jarring. We haven't been without Accountantbrate or Defensebrate since they formed, and cerebrates have shown that they cannot live long without us!
>>20270393Well, we should obviously try to regain contact.Can we in any way (like a swarm of overlords in support) boost our signal harder?Either way, we're sending emitters to those cerebrates, right?
>>20270393Immediate attempt to regain contact with the missing cerebrates.
>>20270393We must redouble our efforts, delve into the memories of the Protoss on meditation and focus harder on regaining contact with our lost cerebrates.
>>20270393Psi cannon them!
>>20270393Get more of our Zerg forces to direct more Psi-emitters to our lost Cerebrates' locations and attempt to initiate psychic high-fives. In the meantime, dig deep and keep reaching for them! They're essentially a part of us. Try to remember what it was like when they were formed, and try to gain a thread to their consciousness form there. We compressed Bernie's consciousness into a small cube when we got a hold of him.Try to see if we can form a sort of psionic network with the rest of our Cerebrates to amplify our power.
>>20270466>>20270444>>20270434>>20270431So, plans we've got: "try harder," "see if there's a Protoss technique we can use," and "use our Psi Cannon"?
>>20270487I'm all for seeing if there's a Protoss technique we can use.
>>20270487I'd say use the psi-cannon; if possible we should ferry more psi-emitters to our lost Cerebrates as well. Also see if we can join our power to the rest of the Cerebrates' and see if we can't amplify our psionic reach that way.
>>20270487Why not all of them?We're a god-damned cerebrate, surely we can give three orders at the same time?(It probably just means we get one d100 each to succeed in anyway. x))

Honestly, I almost feel like this would be a good place to stop, since it gives CA the perfect way to end. The Cerebrate's control slips away as the Xel Naga reassert control, losing awareness in a murky half-awake state. Only to snap back to awareness as the following line booms in its mind..."AWAKEN MY CHILD, AND EMBRACE THE GLORY THAT IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT.

>>20270987Warbrate is in space over Yoshus. The troops there not under its control confirm that it's still there. Defensebrate is on Tarsonis. Salem Saberhagen is still on a remote colony, yes.The only one on Xenta is Accountantbrate.
>>20270999My bad. I was assuming we were trying to blast them. I need to read more carefully.
(Did the text all over the site just get bold for anybody else?)
>>20271011where am ihave i been killed yet
>>20271022So, was the Zeratul being alive thing because of me?Because I'm the one who went "Holy shit, Zeratul probably taught them. Holy shit. He's probably on the ships we just stole right now. Hey MetaOp?">No, he's still back home.
>>20271022I have no idea why.>>20271014Out backup plan is to nuke the Xel'Naga. Everything else is test related.
>>20271072If he's there, you don't know he's there.
>>20271072Who said anything about Zeratul?>>20271071You may need to read some of the archives...>>20271001>>20270985>>20270970So, two for a test shot and one for a blitz?
>>20271071You went rouge, so we crushed, with our mind, into 1 cubic centimeter, which we then sent into a black hole.
>>20271108Ok, now you're making me paranoid again.
>>20271108I implied blitz, now that I know what blitz is in referance to.
>>20271108oh what, that is bull why did i get killedi demand a resurrectionrebirth me using your mind, i'm sure that'll beat these fuckers' test, and if that doesn't work then fire all the nukes and fleets we've got
>>20271128Nope, you removed yourself.No resurrection is possible.
>>20271131>>and if that doesn't work then fire all the nukes and fleets we've gotget cracking then
>>20271117Well duh. Of course Zeratul is still kicking around here. That fleet was trained by Zeratul, but commanded by... I'll say Artanis, because I don't see Fenix going dark, and I forget if he's dead or not.
>>20271117Good. Good. I bring chaos with my posts.
>>20271142Tassadar. Artanis and Fenix are both chilling in the Empire with Khas, as far as we know.>>20271125two for a test shot, two for a blitz.
>>20271205i still think resurrecting me is the best option. i'll show these fuckers. i'll show em -good-(do you guys seriously not have me saved somewhere in your dna or anything)
>>20271205test shot>>20271228Nope. Purged every last strand of your deviant existance.
>>20271238>>20271241Which one? Warbrate, Accountantbrate, Defensebrate, or Salem Saberhagen?
>>20271205Not the fleet we blew up, the one that poofed away, but if Artanis and Fenix are with Khas then that only leaves Zeratul, and maybe Selendis, but she's a twit... did Raszagal die on Shakuras?
>>20271279Whichever one is easiest.If none of them are, begin with defensebrate, he might have an idea on psionic defense as well.
>>20271291Same fleet. It's complicated.>>20271301>>20271305Since Accountantbrate is just down the road...
rolled 83 = 83>>20271412rollin'
>>20271323Good ol' Accountbrate, our first named overlord, and I think second cerebrate, since defenselord started doing it before we even broke from teh Overmind.
rolled 95 = 95>>20271412
whatever happened to Erniebrate
rolled 67 = 67>>20271443His name is Artisanlord. You would know that if you ever played this quest before.
>>20271439>>20271429Huzzah! The dice declare that Accountbrate is saved!
>>20271443Never happened, Artisanlord is still floating around though.
rolled 41 = 41>>20271463Unless we were supposed to roll low this time.Then he's fucked.
>>20271458I want to say BERNIE dropped out before we made Artisanlord, came back shortly after we made Berniebrate, but Artisanlord wasn't particularly active at the time.
>>20271429>>20271439The heighliner lines up its shot and lets loose at Accountantbrate. Immediately, its mind returns to us, with a status report on the resources it gathered during our absence and it begins tabulating how much it would cost to recoup our losses if we don't get the others back.(3d25 fortitude, then you can try for the others)
rolled 8, 21, 5 = 34>>20271560
>>20271458i played in the very first thread and i also poked my head in to tell you which ship was the real one about to kill the Overmindpull the stick out of your ass, chum
rolled 17, 9, 18 = 44Come on guys, you can pull through!
rolled 1, 10, 9 = 20>>20271560Rolling for effect!
rolled 2, 1, 13 = 16let those bernie genes keep you alive
>>20271587>>20271597Rolls acknowledged. 3d100 if you want to save them.
rolled 19, 67, 31 = 117>>20271640Fire!
rolled 95, 79, 46 = 220>>20271640YOU CAN DO IT GUYS!
>>20271672I'd say we got two of them back.
>>20271671>>20271672The heighliner passes through Yoshus, and Warbrate's mind returns to us. It tells us that its forces are standing by. The heighliner hits Tarsonis, and Defensebrate's thoughts come flooding back, showing us how the Terran reconstruction is still proceeding. It goes to the remote world holding Salem Saberhagen...and we feel nothing. The Psi Cannon has not restored it to us.
>>20271741Attempt another shot of the psi-cannon.
>>20271741Try harder!Not Salem!
>>20271741Must have something to do with him being a "true" cerebrate. Fire at him again, then add more emitters and Artisanlord.
>>20271770>>20271774>>20271780I'll convert the roll. 2d100.
rolled 43, 2 = 45>>20271811We need more power, Scotty."Neh, it cannot handle anymore powah"
rolled 35, 87 = 122>>20271780I have no words left. Just rolls.
rolled 80, 49 = 129>>20271811
>>20271823>>20271836The second shot rings true, and Salem Saberhagen's mind rushes back into ours. It asks what took us so long.That's a good place to stop, before the next psionic test. Looks like we're going to be meeting on the 18th, unless a friend's medical stuff gets out of hand, in which case we'll have to wing it. Gotta be Mr. Helpful and hold hands.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20268058/See you cats next week. Stay silly.
>>20271927Sweet. :3Also, kitteh. <3We gotta develop us some super-cuddly kitties. Yes, seriously.We should harness the power of adorability.
>>20271927See ya in a week Cerebrate. Hope your friend gets well soon.
>>20271968I'll be sure to relay that sentiment. Thanks.>>20271956It took me too long to realize why cats were related. That show is so far in the past...
>>20271927Alright, see you next time, CA.
