Freak Quest time!In this quest, you take the role of a big armed, friendly freak, who is currently adventuring with his lizard like friend Joey.Previous threads can be found here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=freak+questIn the last session, after fleeing from a guardian brute with Joey, you passed out in a small chamber with a bed, and experienced a creepy and strange poison induced dream sequence. After waking up on the bed with Joey, she explained that the freak who had let you in to the chamber had healed you while you were passed out. She told that this "Nice Lady" had taken the strange syringe that you had discovered earlier as a payment from healing you. Before investigating this further, you however, decided to regain some strength.
>>24087643>How this works:Suggest an action and the freak will act. I will try to illustrate it as well as I can. Certain actions will require 1d10 rolls to see if they are successful. There are also slightly more complicated rules for combat:There are 3 stats, strength, toughness, and agility, in addition to them, there are hitpoints.All stats are capped at 10, and the baseline hitpoints of a gutterborn freak like the MC are 6.Attacks are handled like this:The attacker rolls 2d6.The first roll is for the attack damage, second for the speed.Damage: 1d6+str+modifiers (if there are any)- the foe's toughness.Speed: 1d6+agiThe target of the attack may try to either dodge or block the blow.Dodge: 1d6+agi vs Attack speed.Bloc: 1d6+toughness vs attack damage.Ties go in the favor of the attacker.These rules are still work in progress, and I appreciate any input on them.Here is your current inventory:>3 empty small containers.>1 full small containers (1 biogel dozes)>1 medium container with 5 biogel dozes.>Cutting tools.>Claw arm.>Improved walking eye bladder.>1 ration package.>Bone armor.You are also equipped with a bone sword.Joey has the bone knife.Introducing the Journal, which will from now on display things of interest. It's purpose is to keep track of things that players want to investigate further.
>>24087661You and Joey are currently sitting on the bed, eating the delicious Jello you found in the chamber.You feel slight aches on your still healing wounds, and your head is still slightly dizzy from presumably the poison that was in your system.What will you do.>In general, updates will take around 10-20 minutes to be posted.
>>24087675I'm really angry that the strange syringe was taken from us, I had a vested interest in it. But NOT being killed by poison seems like a fair trade.Is the red teardrop thing on the wall just a light source? Take action: Investigate the status of the upper bar floor by poking our head out the door. I just want to find and talk to Javak. Getting deeply involved with a potential vat mother so quickly seems a bad idea.
>>24087675I am interested in obtaining that drink that boosts our regeneration, we seem to take a lot of damage, and it is a solid investment so we don't wake up in strange places from blood loss...plus that freak carcass and extra armor at the shop. many get enough bits and peices from the corpse to make a straight trade.
>>24087801You go peek outside while leaving Joey to eat the rest of the Jelly.You also take a quick look at the red thing on the wall. It seems to be just some sort of glowing thing, attached to the wall, but you can't say for sure without closer examination.As for the corridor outside of the door, you don't see anyone right now. Due to the shape of the doorway, you however, have very limited field of vision right now.
>>24087675I want to meet the vatmother and talk to her. What's her deal, why she saved us, what was in the syringe.
>>24087918drink the various containers, they look like they were set out for us. maybe one of them is that regenerative drink.
>>24087918You go further into the doorway to take a quick look at the corridor.It doesn't seem that much is happening here.>>24087931You start pondering if you should drink the containers that were left in the room, as you walk back inside.
>>24087978drink! drink! chugalug!
>>24088013Which one do you want to pick?Joey has finished up the jello."That wass good!..Hey!, what are you doing? Iss there more jello?"
>>24088031look inside and smell them all.
>>24088031The dark purple one with red tendrils rising from it.Ask Joey, "do you know where these containers came from, did the nice lady leave them?" Yes I am suggesting we drink one before asking sensible questions.
>>24088086purple tentacle-aid it is!
>>24088045You start sniffing and studying the containers.The brown small one has some sort of powdery, yellowish substance inside of it, which doesn't really smell at all to you.The large green vat is filled with sour smelling green slime, and small, translucent globs with many tendrils, that seem to slowly swim around in the slime.In the light grey tubular vat, there seems to be many long sticks, that give of a sweet, sugary scent.The purple container lack an obvious opening, besides a small slit at the middle of the tendrils that slowly sway from it, making deciphering it's contents somewhat hard. The tentacles themselves, smell somewhat like blood.>>24088086You pick up the purple container, and prepare to drink it down.
>>24088131You begin to drink down the liquid in the purple container. The tendrils caress your face, as the sour tasting liquid touches your tongue.You take one gulp, and cough up some of it.It has a very strong taste, which burns your tongue. It has a traces of the sweetness of biogel, but the burning, sour taste is much stronger.The stuff doesn't taste especially good."Hey! Did you find some tassty drinkss?" You hear Joey say."Give me so- whatss that?!"Joey seems somewhat more alert now, and her ears seem to twitch."This iss funny! I can hear Nice Lady, even though she is in the other room!"
>>24088253bleach. lets not drink any more of that. but joey, can we get her to tell us what the nice lady is saying?
>>24088253"shush now joey, you fret over tasty drinks too much as is. Now the nice lady was very helpful before, can you tell me what she is saying now?"
>>24088281>>24088350You put aside the sour drinking stuff, and ask Joey if she can hear what the Nice Lady is saying right now."..I am not ssure? I can hear her voice, but not what she is saying..I thinks that she iss in the room next to uss, with someone else."
>>24088369Let us get into a position to eves drop, whatever course of action is required. we can perhaps find out about her and her agenda, as well as the syringe...and if need be, escape.
>>24088369I think it would be best just to wait for he to finish.
>>24088369Is it alright if we just skip this particular convo, and instead return to the area we last heard Javak at. I want to talk to him and his friend Char, this time without being suspected a SPY!
>>24088457seconded, shadowstrider style.
>>24088457Joey tells you that the voice of the nice lady comes from somewhere behind that door. She says that if she remembers correctly, there should be some sort of corridor behind it as she saw the Nice Lady leave there.What will you do? Open the door and continue trying to eves drop on the nice lady, or do something else?>>24088468Wait for her finish talking and return to you?>>24088500That is of course, also and option, though it has been many hours since you heard Javak the last time.
>>24088590eavesdrop, but not if it means opening that door, if there is no other way then it's time to see Javak.
>>24088794redacted second. let us attempt to sneak in, and hear what she has to say, but make sure joey's ears are feeling keen. if we get caught, make like we were looking for the nice lady anyway. we are under no instructions to stay put are we?
>>24088624You decide against opening the door, and try to eaves drop from behind it.You still can't really hear anything, but Joey presses her head against the door, and stands still for few moments."I thinks that I can hear something more..but the heart beat of the door iss..loud..messess up.."You can try to roll 1d10 for Joey's attempts to better make out what is being discussed somewhere beyond the door.Number to beat, 6.The first roll will be counted. (The highest of 3 rolls system is perhaps somewhat too forgiving, though I am open to suggestions for improvements, but for now, we will be going with the first roll counting.)
Rolled 5>>24088826ears dont fail me now
Rolled 8>>24088826go dice!
>>24088854Joey closes her eyes, and concentrates for several moments.Finally, she re-opens them and says:"The door's heart beatss messed up much..but I thinks they are talking about the thing the nice lady took. They sound happy! They said that it was important and lucky that they found it. I am not sure though. I thinks that they are not right behind thiss door..too silent..somewhere further."
>>24088931damn. we rolled the 8, or did that one misfire count? if so, press onward.
>>24088931Well it seems ok if we go into the room, I bet the freaks talking are actually beyond it in a different room. Open the door. and be grumpy about it, poison and now sour sludge inside us, I just can't be pleased with anything. I don't plan to venture far past this door anyway.
>>24088995only first roll counted for listeningand it was>>24088854
Knock gently before going through, so that anyone on the other side will have a good chance of hearing us, and we could say that we were looking for her if she finds us.
Oh my god, it's Freak Quest!!!!!
Just got caught up in the archives, awesome quest.
>>24088931go in, lets see what we can listen to.
>>24088931If they're happy about the item than they're probably happy with us, since we brought it to them.I say we open the door to better ease drop.
You cautiously open the door, prepared to defend yourself against possible attacks with your bone sword...Fortunately, there seems to be no need for that.The corridor is empty. Joey says that she can hear the discussion coming from somewhere to your right. You are not sure if you can hear anything yet. The small sounds you can hear, might be just the general background noise this place itself makes.
>>24089150to the right!
>>24089144But they might not be happy about us listening it. They didn't tell us what it is, right? I wouldn't rely too much on their gratitude; we might just be "those dumb hatchlings that stumbled on this super special thing" to them.
>>24089170On that note, can we just disregard both corridors and go find Javak? I really don't expect much to gain from this direction. Not even any cool sightseeing or anything.
>>24089160You head towards right.Joey says that the voices are coming from the doorway before you.
>>24089259Ease drop before we go blindly marching in.
>>24089259Listen at Door, do not enter.
Can we hear them from here?
>>24089282>>24089304>>24089310You stop at the door to listen. Now you are pretty sure that you can hear some noises, coming from behind few walls, but you can't make up any words.Joey says that she can hear the two talking more clearly now, but she is not sure of what they are talking about now. According to her, they are probably still not in the chamber that the doorway opens into, as she would probably sense their movements with her ear tingling, if they were there.(basically, Joey can detect movement on a short radius around her, but only if there are no door or walls to block the vibrations from moving trough the air.)
>>24089447Into the next chamber!
>>24089477>>24089523You enter the next chamber.Your nostrils are flooded with a strange, sweet scent, as you step into this chamber bathed in strange, dim pinkish lights.At the center of the chamber, there seems to be a large pool of red...something, which Joey immediately notices."Look!!" She whispers. "So much delicious blood! Can I drink it?!"You yourself, can now clearly hear some vague whispers coming from the right pathway, but you can't yet pick up individual words.
>>24089687"I don't know if that's blood or not, don't drink it yet." Just sort of poke our head inside to see what we can see.
>>24089687We....We are in a shower aren't we. We sneak into the FreakQuest girls locker room. wow
>>24089687ask her to keep listening, but yes, gorge on this. Maybe if she is finally full for once, she will be able to focus on the task at hand.
>>24089687"We probably shouldn't. It wasn't offered to us, so someone might get mad if we take it without asking."
So, what will you do?Do you continue to listen while you allow Joey to go gorge herself in the red liquid, or do you tell her to stay put. (Of course, she might not obey you, seeing how she is an independent little freak, who happens to love blood)It seems that there is currently no one else in this particular chamber. The whispering however, is coming from the doorway to your right.
>>24089938I guess let her gorge herself while we go listen to the right.
>>24089938Let her gorge and we should backtrack to the left corridor, the empty one. There we can likely find free goods and materials if they aren't bolted down.
>>24090042We shouldn't just loot at Vat Mother's house.
>>24090042gorge. also, are we hungry? if not, onward to exploration, and perhaps flex our fappin' arm, make sure its ready for...things.
Polite reminder to put "quest" in your thread subject when making quest threads
>>24089996Sorry it took this long, had to make another background picture for future use.You continue to the right, while Joey happily goes to play in the pool of...red liquid.As you advance forward, the whispering becomes more clear.You can now pick up some words, like:".. assignment....orders...stroke of luck...importance...gutterspawn...aromaculi...sister..." and so on. You can't make out proper sentences though, so not much of the whispering makes that much sense to you. >>24090270I will try to remember to do that the next time.
>>24090301Look at her, going off to frolic. Adorable.Anyway, get closer, but sneakily. You know, creep up all quiet like.
Sneaky, but hurry hurry hurry. If the next room is empty, don't pause, continue to the next area staying in the shadows.
>>24090353>>24090390You approach the doorway, and now can hear the whispers much more clearly.The sentences are still somewhat vague, but you might be able to make sense of them from this vantage point, if you really focus on listening.You can either roll 1d10 for eves dropping from this location, or advancing further to hear better.Number to beat 4.The first roll will be counted.
Rolled 10>>24090452aaaaaaaaaaaaaa rolling
>>24090353you put on your combination multispectral goggles and quickly whip out a concealed .40 socom. Calling in over the radio for support to HQ you get a confused response. "SNAKE?! SNAAAKE?!"
>>24090496Better hide under a box, pronto.
>>24090480>critical success.With your iron will, you steel yourself and concentrate, allowing you to hear the smallest sounds all around you, the splashes of water from the pool, the tiny little noises from the glowing spores, as they gently fall down, the flowing of the blood inside the veins of the walls, at this moment, you have clarity. Maximum spy moment!Most importantly, you hear the discussion the two older freaks are having:(Unknown voice 1):"..you know the risks, are you absolutely sure that this item is indeed what you think it is?"(Unknown voice 2):"It has to be. It fits the descriptions revered sister Sirai gave to us during her lesson on Noble artifacts."(1):"But why would two gutterspawn even have an aromaculi with them? The whole thought is presumptuous! How would they even acquire one?"(2):"I do not know sister, but it seemed that the smaller one was completely oblivious to the nature of this device. She was happy to give it away. They must have found it from somewhere."(1):"That's unlikely. The nobles don't just hand these around! They just inject their drones and lackeys with the contents."(2):"Can you give a better explanation?"(1):"....well...maybe they stole it?"(2):"Two gutterspawn? You realize that they are at most, 4 days old? How in the world they would steal it?"(1):"Maybe they stole it from the merchant that seems to own them?"(2):"..I doubt that even the merchant knows what this is..otherwise, he would have taken much better care of it wouldn't he? and besides, why would the gutterspawn even steal it? They have no idea of what it is. The only reasonable explanation is that they somehow, just found one lying in some of the gutters. Maybe a noble servant was killed and dropped his one or something?"There is a pause for a moment, before they continue again...(cont.)
>>24090749(1):"Well, to what house does that thing even belong to?"(2):"That is what has been puzzling me...I can't recognize the insignia carved to it. It's not like any house symbols that we have learned."(1):"What?... Didn't Revered sister Sirai claim to have taught us all the symbols of local significant houses, along with the ones of the Great ones? Are you doubting her teachings?"(2):"No, I am not...I hope so at least..But I am sure that this symbol is not among the ones she taught us. Look at it yourself! It must be either from..operatives of some distant minor house, who for some reason, came to this backwater place...but.."(1):"..but that doesn't make any sense. Minor houses lack such projecting power, and they would certainly not allow their aromaculi to be taken on such a risky mission. Other houses might claim it and send infiltrators using the scent against them."(2):"We must take this to Sister Sirai... This might be very important discovery...It might grant us our accession into trusted sisters! We could finally leave this wretched place!"(1):"But how can we deliver it? We can't leave our posts here? We have a mission, and unless that device is absolutely worth risking it, we can't expose ourselves. Unless Char sends us away or replaces us with new consorts, which is unlikely...seeing our...popularity with his customers."(2):"We could use Lekha? Give him the instructions to deliver the device to Sirai?"(1):"No! We can't. He would just take all the credit from discovering it from us, and ascend himself. You know he would, and neither of us wants to see him as a new trusted brother."cont..(sorry that this is taking this long, but hey, you rolled a critical success on this, so you bet you will be hearing the whole discussion)
>>24091053It's cool man.
>>24091053(2):"But what other methods do we have? This device is clearly of some significance. Sister Sirai needs to see it."(1):"Well, if we can't deliver it ourselves, we could use someone else..someone who doesn't realize the significance of it?"(2):"And who would that be? None of the our..customers..value us in any way, why would they do anything we ask, especially if we can't pay them?(1):"..I don't know..maybe we could try to pool up some of the tips they give us?"(2):"..and risk punishment and potential exposure from Char?! You know that we aren't allowed to keep the tips!"(1):"Then what do you suggest! If this thing is the key to our ascension and freedom from this wretched guilder infested whorehouse, I suggest that you two try to come up with some ideas!"(2):"..I am sorry sister...well..we can't leave without risking blowing our cover and our mission..and we can't use Lekha...nor any of the customers to deliver the aromaculi..we need someone that we can easily either convince or manipulate into doing what we want...but also lacks the knowledge of the true nature of the device....Yes! I now know what to do! The two gutterspawns! They are young, and impressionable! The smaller one practically worshiped me for treating the bigger one! She fully believed the poison story I told her, and allowed me to take the aromaculi without question! We could wrap the device in a package saturated with a personal pheromone message to Sirai, and give it to the two. Then we would just need to convince them to take it to Sirai!"(1):"....can we trust the aromaculi on the two? They are gutterspawns, and besides, I think that the cursed Godal merchant owns them anyways."(2):"...well..we could use a little of our..chemical magic..to convince them to leave the merchant behind..it's not like he has them on chains...(1):"..excellent...we retain our cover, and still manage to deliver the device to Sirai...I can't wait to see Lekha's face.."cont..(just one more post)
Internal monologue:>Aromaculi? Is that what the thing was called? Sounds important.
>>24091335My guess? I causes you to exude the pheromones of the noble house it comes from.
>>24091306You begin to hear movement from the chamber, as the two freaks continue to quite excitedly speak who jealous this Lekha person would be, and how they would make him pay for all the abuse and "benefits" he had taken from them while they were stationed in this "wretched hive of scum and debauchery."You have few moments to bail without being seen.(sorry that this dialogue took so long. I had planned on revealing only portions of it, based on the hearing roll, but as you rolled 10, I thought that it would be appropriate to reveal it all.)
>>24091367Relaax man, no need to apologize.Anyway, run back to the red pool and collect Joey, need to get back to that room they left us in.
Rolled 9>>24091306The poison was just a COVER STORY? I am so pissed about that. I thought the nice lady had one redeeming quality in that she was medically trained. But noooooo, she just a coniving whore. Maker help me, I want that syringe back.If they appearently can't afford the services of a delivery service, but the means to coat a package in a pheromone message is readily available, it makes me wonder about what augs they have.
Rolled 2>>24091392Suggestion: chug one small container of biogel for combat bonuses, activate the adrenaline gland once more, Run into the room, use initiative to perform enhanced charge attack and GET THAT SYRINGE BACK before these girls do freaky chemical stuff to us.
>>24091474>>24091428Bollocks-ing hell why can't I turn dice off?
>>24091474Sounds like a bad idea to me. We know the truth now, and it sounds like they're just going to give it back to us.
>>24090496Goddamn amazing.>>24091367I think things seem to be going as we wanted them to go anyway. They're going to trust the device, whatever it is, into our possession, and they do not know that we know they think we do not know it's important.Drag Joey off the luminous blood area, and get back to the place we were earlier. Let's appear inconspicuous.
>>24091593Well, ok....Yeah, lets go get Joey and wait in the room. I bet Joey drank so much she's going to lay an egg or something. I have calmed down now. Don't want to make bad decisions in a quest where death is a very real possibility.
You run to get Joey from the weird blood pool thing...It seems...that Joey really likes it, seeing how she is basically bathing in the ..blood.
>>24091783That's creepy pull him out.
>>24091783Toss something into the pool of what-is-hopefully-blood near her to get her attention.
>>24091877> himHer.Insofar it is really that important in this setting.
>>24091783these things happen. it's alright. get her attention and promise we can come back here real soon but now we have to go. I want a warning when joey's ear frills give the slightest tingle.
>>24091783gentlefreeks, we have options...we either grab her, run like hell, and hope the sisters do not notice that we were here, which depends on how much this stuff smells. Or Two...we play up that we are retarted gutter spawn. Ham it up like champs. Nice lady has nice pool of yummy stuff and helped keep the small friend safe! After all, we probably just drank half a jug of potpourri or a douche. Probably not too hard for a stretch for her to buy. Jump in the pool, have fun and act retarded.
>>24091956>We just ate her douche.God damn it this is hilarious. I like this guy's idea. Jump in with her and ham up the stupid gutterspawn angle.
So..what shall you do?I will wait for a consensus before starting to draw the next picture. (all the neat color shading they have going takes some time to edit, and I don't want to start until it's clear what you guys want to do.)
I third the kids in a pool idea.
>>24091991kids in the pool strategy!
Alright, I'll go with the kids in the pool strategy.Feel free to prepare ideas to how to explain yourself to the older freaks.
>>24092051I woke up, and wanted to find my friend Javek the merchant, he told me alot today, but not that some freaks can turn invisible! We came to find him but he wasnt with you, but this pool was, do you know where he is? Derp derp!
>>24092217ps! thanks for leaving out that good food, joey and i ate it, but the purple drink was too sour!
>>24092264>>24092217>>24091956"We need to fight for the syringe by ourselves and risk dieing.""No anon, that's not sensible let's go back instead.""Yeah that does sound like a better idea, I didn't want to mess anything up.""Wait I Know! Lets all act retarded in the blood pool."Now who is the one not being sensible?
>>24092366the man wasting precious moments of his life. which might also be me in retrospect, but i am sort of grinning at this moment, so maybe not so much.Besides, when we get one of them alone we can break their pretty little necks, or get them to hook us up with biogel and augs for their holy quest. We still got that armor to hook up.
In the few seconds that you have to decide what yo do, you ponder the options you have. You can either rush to the pool, and grab Joey, and then run back to the bedroom, but risk the older freaks smelling that you had visited the pool...or you can run into the pool, and act inconspicuous there.Both tactics are risky, but the later one gives you more time to quickly explain Joey what's up, and tell her to act the part.You jump into the pool, and startle Joey.
>>24092480>Again, sorry that these take so long. That fancy "glow" and the blood pool are somewhat time consuming to edit.
>>24092510>Again, sorry that these take so long. That fancy "glow" and the blood pool are somewhat time consuming to edit."Sorry it takes time to create the best art in a quest thread in /tg/ history."
>>24092548Thanks...that's pretty flattering.Though the quest speed greatly suffers due to the time I put into the drawings. We don't make that much progress in each session.Anyways, here is some music that I used to work as inspiration for the glowy blood pool scenes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvPF43AwcsA
>>24092640Eh, I don't personally mind because the art is good.>>24092480"Nice lady and her friend are coming. They have something to give us and they're not really that nice. Act stupid."
>>24092693Maybe not stupid, but as if he's been there the whole time.
>>24092548You think this is it? This guy make some amazing stuff for Evoquests. Have a look while we wait.
>>24092973This guy is the best damn artist on /tg/
>>24092910>>24092961These two weren't by me I am afraid.Anyways:>>24092693You manage to quickly tell her to what's up, and to act her part. Suddenly, you hear a familiar voice behind you.(2):"Well, well, well...look what we have here. I presume that you two have a good explanation for loitering in the bathing pool of Char's consorts."(1):"These are the two gutterspawns you mentioned? What are they doing here?"(2):"Yes, they are, and I would like to hear an answer to that very same question myself. Explain yourself!"
>>24093087...and I forgot the darn picture.
>>24093087Play dumb and really ham it up
>>24093087Look confused. "Consort? But... delicious pool!"
>>24093087we kept waiting for you to return, but it took so long. I got bored and wondered into this place, calling out for the one who helped me before. There are so many neat things hear. Didn;t you hear me calling? *splash joey and make like it's a game*
>>24093087Now, now. We can ham this up, but a bit of truth will help us seem more realistic. Ask what a consort is, what a bathing pool is, and if we can continue drinking the blood, and if the nice ladies need help.
>>24093087We wanted to explore this place. It's full of wondrous things to do and see. Was it forbidden? If it was, why didn't you lock us in or keep us guarded?
>>24093417Too intelligent, too intrusive. Better to play innocently curious instead of smart curious.
>>24093101>I just now realized that I should probably make your roll for success at trying to fool the two.Should I...?A never mind that.I have this picture ready, so I am gonna post it.You do your best to appear somewhat dumb, and not really aware of the fact that you are apparently trespassing and in general, try to raise as little suspicion as possible."What's a consort?" you ask meekly, while making little splashes towards Joey, who herself seems somewhat confused, but also starts splashing, as if you two had been doing it for the whole time.(2):"..That doesn't matter. Get out of the pool, now!"(1):"We have a little task for you two..if you play nice..and do what we want, you will be rewarded."Again, I apologize for taking this long.
>>24093811Playing dumb seems to work. Continue.But step out of the pool anyway, (1) and (2) don't seem too happy for you using it.
>>24093811Get out of the pool, look apologetic.
>>24093811get out of the pool, be curious and eager; help joey out with your big hand.
>>24093811THAT...that is a really pretty picture.
You step out of the pool, and help Joey out of it too by lifting her with your strong hand.The lady with the insectoid head things (2) continues to speak:"Now, you two listen very, very carefully. We have a special mission for you, that is very important. But firstly, we need to ask you some questions:Big one, can you fight and defend yourself? Little one, do you remember, where you found the pretty thing you gave to me as a payment.And finally, where did your master find or buy you?"The taller, fleshier freak nods after her sister stops speaking and says:"You must answer these questions truthfully. If you act nice, and do as we say, nothing bad will happen to you two."Joey clings to your arm, clearly intimidated by the two freaks.
>>24094419well she asked for the truth.....
>>24094560Well, what will you do?You can roll 1d10 to lie.Number to beat 5.Or, you can just tell the partial truth, leave out details and so on.
Rolled 10>>24094724well if I pass this then lie if I don't tell the truth
Rolled 3>>24094831Welp looks like a lie it is
>>24094831Basically tell them what they want to hear. You found it near the Gutters. Your 'master' found you in the Gutters. Yes you have fought and won. The sword is one of your trophies.
>>24094831today is a good day in FreakQuest dice.
>>24094831Critical success (they occur every time the roll result is equal as or higher than the target number multiplied by 2.)So, what is your lie? If it something completely outrageous though, it will obviously not pass. For example, they won't believe that you two fought against dozens of aughounds on your way here. Keep the lie reasonable.
>>24094831critical success to lie, not only do they believe we are from space, but the future. We are given all their worldly belongings and a nice foot rub.
>>24094916This sounds like the best ooption
>>24094916You and Joey tell that you found the strange syringe thingy in the gutters, that Javak found you in there too, and that you are capable of fighting.The two seems to be pleased by these answers, and the insectoid lady says:"Alright then, let's get you two ready. Follow me."
Shall we stab them in the back? They are going to try and brainwash us.
Make sure to tell them that no one else knows about the syringe. Make the lie as pleasing and pacifying to them as possible.
>>24095208I'm not sure we can handle these two. Let's ask them to talk to our "master" first. We'll say we're sure he wouldn't mind earning a bit of biogel lending us out for whatever its "nice ladies" need.
>>24095208I am not sure if we should.From what I understood from the discussion between the two we overheard, it seems that they are in a pretty shitty situation too. They seem like some sort of lower ranking Vat Mothers who are working undercover as slaves/prostitutes, and with no real way to get out of the situation, other than delivering the potentially important syringe thing to their masters.
>>24095208Not yet we'll betray them taking credit for the syringe ourselves and i'm pretty sure their "brainwashing" works like joeys i.e suggestion
So, what will you do? Do you follow them or do you have anything else to say to them.Of course, you can say it while following too.
Rolled 6>>24095294>>24095271>>24095270>>24095252>>24095208I have an idea: Let us pretend to be under joeys own mind control pheremones, and get her to ask if she can become a "nice lady" one day. The sisters will realize joey is a gutterspawn that has become like a vat mother on her own, think twice about brainwashing us, and get them to trust joey. I'm rolling to get this lie to work.
>>24095318go ahead follow them
>>24095208Uncertain; getting the hell out of here at speed would be a good idea, but remember, these are Vatmothers; perhaps not high level ones, but they're part of one of the big, resourceful factions. As such, there is a decent chance that they are hard as nails. I think a distraction then booking it may be better.
>>24095318Follow them, be prepared to wreck something important looking to use as a distraction.
>>24095371Don't do this just follow them until we get the syringe then find a way to get out of there as fast as possible
>>24095371I am all for any option to get out of their presence. Even if it leaves the aromaculi behind.
>>24095422But if we take credit for finding it then we're pretty much set
>>24095421We don't need the syringe. All things considered, keeping it may be akin to having a sword of Damocles over our head.
>>24095447We don't need the the syringe?!The way they were talking about sounded like it was a one way ticket to godhood.
>>24095503No, it's just that I really really really liked it when we first got it. I was so pretty. And I don't like the idea of getting bamboozled while sleeping.
>>24095503Sounded more like political positioning; it's Noble house biotech, which appears to be of a sort that has high value to the Vatmothers (and presumably the Nobles too). If you have ever watched Snatch, consider the sheer trouble caused by that diamond, then consider how this is not a Guy Ritchie film and that we will die horribly if caught in the crossfire (as opposed to having our Pikey gutterspawn friends save our hides).
>>24095637>>24095623Honestly you two are being way overcautious about this.The worst thing that could happen if we take the syringe is that we leave the merchant behind. No one noticed or cared when we had it with us before.We'll be fine.
You follow the two ladies out of the bath chamber, back to the corridor.As you walk, the two older freaks chat casually with each other, seemingly not caring about your presence.(You managed to really convince them with your "dumb stupid gutterspawn act")"Things might just turn out alright after all Jial.""True..I at least hope so. If we manage to pull this off, we could finally get out of this place.""I can't wait to get back at Lekha...we might even manage to get rid of him completely, if we are allowed to become trusted sisters.""We just have to home that these two gutter spawn are capable enough to deliver the package."(you are currently walking in the corridor)
>>24095803Pretend not to be listening and play around with joey until they start talking to you.
>>24095803You arrive in the room where you woke up."Tum, could you prepare the package." says the insectoid lady, and before turning to you two."Now, little ones, go sit on the bed, so that I can't instruct you on what you must do."(no picture for this update, to save time, working on the next one. It's getting pretty late, but I am trying to reach a suitable spot to end this session.)
>>24095898Do as she says.
>>24095898Plop down on the bed.
Guys.I am freaking tired.And I don't think that I can end this session in a satisfying way before I fall asleep at my computer.I am sorry.I hope that this session was enjoyable, and that you got at least some feeling of plot progression this time.Like always, input and criticism is always welcome.If this thread is around tomorrow, I can try to finish up this session then, but now, I really need to sleep.So if you want to bumb this or something, feel free to post links to good thematic music, or pictures that could work as inspiration for freaks or landscapes or whatever.
>>24096471Anyways, this is the current situation where we will end for today.You and Joey sit on the bed. The tall freak begins to fiddle with something at the table, while the chitinous freak stands in front of you, and begins to explain your mission in more detail."To fulfill your task, you must take the package my sister is making to a very specific place, and to a very specific person...."Again, I am sorry for this sort of cop out cliff hanger at this point, but I overestimated how long I could do this today.
>>24096536Thats fine. Thanks for the fun time FQop.
Hey FQop and redeath, what do you think the archive tags and description should be this time?
>>24096611Already archived it.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=giger
>>24096584No problem, I aim to please.>>24096640Thanks.
Anyways, I am gonna go to sleep now.As always, ideas, input, and critique is welcome.Also, if you guys have any pictures I could use for inspiration, such as this one, feel free to post them.
>>24096742Bump.Also, what happened to George? (The walking bladder with eyes)
>>24096992This looks like it could be a good freak.
>>24096992I'm pretty sure he's just sitting round notdoing anything.
Not Giger, but somewhat reminiscent.
suppose I could post some all tomorrows stuff.
>>24097323oh god is that thing from the mistwhen i first saw that movie (day it came out on dvd with a bunch of bros) i awoke in the middle of the night believing i was covered in spiders and ran screaming through the house trying to get them off megood times
>>24097534>>24097574>>24097594>>24097622>>24097681>>24097708What the fuck man? What the actual fuck!?
>>24097594>subway commutersHere, have the PDF.
>>24097751:3>>24097752Since when can you upload pdfs to 4chan?
>>24097752Good Christ, do I love this. Such a shame Snaiad got taken down.
>>24097794It's been quite a while now, at least since some time last year.
>>24097832I had no idea.
>>24097832>>24097897Well now I got nothing anyone else wanna contribute.
>>24097794It's only on a couple boards. I don't know if it's just one or two more. /po/ is for sure one.
Well, I am back.Thanks for bumbing this thread.However, unfortunately my pc crashed when I was asleep, and I lost almost all the background pictures I had drawn today.
>>24102217> However, unfortunately my pc crashed when I was asleep, and I lost almost all the background pictures I had drawn today.How is this even possible? Does your program (Photoshop?) not make backup files? You just kept them in memory for the whole time, not saving them at all?Argh.
>>24104160I mean that I didn't manage to save them in a format in which they retain their layers, and thus, are easy to edit.I only have the png versions of them, which means that if you guys want to revisit the bath chamber, I need to redraw that background.Which annoys me greatly.It took loads of work to draw that damn place.
>>24102217Soldier on.I'd post a pic, but my snail-speed internet won't let me.
>>24104230Found the source.http://jflaxman.deviantart.com/art/Bad-Kitty-350629675?q=gallery%3Ajflaxman%2F5026137&qo=13
>>24096536The insectoid lady steps closer to you and says:"Unfortunately, I do not trust that you could find your destination, even if I explained it in detail. Thus, I will show it to you."Before you can react, she grabs hold of you with her arms and says:"Do not resist. It will hurt less."http://postimg.org/image/ty7vhvd4p/>Due to 4chan bullshit image size limits, I can't post this to the thread.
>>24106210Anyways, I might be able to continue this quest for few hours, if there is interest in that.Also, feel free to suggest entries to the Journal.I was supposed to mention that you can do that earlier, but I was so tired that I forgot.However, now I am not tired, and if there are any questions or other topics relating to Freak Quest or Gigerworld in general that people would want to discuss, feel free to ask.
>>24106449What does the syringe do?
>>24106596Well, if I would tell you that, it would ruin the mystery of trying to find it out in the quest, wouldn't it?You should be able to figure the most important things about it's nature, from the discussion between the two older freaks.
Bumbing in case people are still interested in discussing stuff related to this quest.
>>24106210ha! Ha. HAAAAAA. YES! Thats the stuff, that's the freaky mind warping shock and fear that I want from quests set in gigerworld. Thank you FQop, now we just need a dot on the map at that location and a simple journal entry about delivering the device. Maybe color code the both of them.
>>24108923Good to hear that the animation was pleasing enough.I'll do few quick finishing updates soon.I promise that in the next session, you will get back to Javak.
The vision ends as quickly as it started, and as you re-open your eyes, a sharp pain hits your head.The insectoid lady laughs heartily, and taps your head."Don't worry little gutter runner, the pain will end soon. Tum, is the package ready?""It is, dear sister." Says the tall freak."Good, then we are set. Let us just hope that these little ones can do their task. Now you two, remember, that this is your special mission. Do not mention it to anyone else, understand? When you get to the temple, ask for Revered sister Siran. Don't worry about the door mistresses, they will let you pass..you are on a special mission, after all."The tall freak presents you the package. It has a strange, somewhat sweet scent, which you can't entirely place."Now, treat this package with care, for your mission's success depends on it."You have acquired a pheromone package containing the strange syringe (aromaculi).>Fucking embedded file error. Keep ruining my day. Link to the picture here:http://i.imgur.com/L8Kq9Hq.png
>>24109691>mfw embedded file errors everywhere.Anyways, here is the updated Journal/stat/inventory and map picture.http://i.imgur.com/kzHEoWG.pngHere is your current inventory:>3 empty small containers.>1 full small containers (1 biogel dozes)>1 medium container with 5 biogel dozes.>1 Pheromone package. (Strange syringe, aka aromaculi)>Cutting tools.>Claw arm.>Improved walking eye bladder.>1 ration package.>Bone armor.I seriously hope that moot fucking fixes this embedded file error issue.
Do you guys think we should ask them if they know where our friend Javak is?
>>24110008What were the devs even fucking around with to break something as integral as images?
>>24110008I am gonna just test if I can upload this here this time.
>>24110103Might be better to ask Yzel (Bartender). Get directions back to the bar, peek in to see if the problem freaks have left yet.
>>24110176Thank you, shame that now my png files don't work.>>24110166Moot has a raging hate boner against sound threads, in where people post pictures with embedded music in them. It seems that he is willing to fuck over the whole site over those threads.I seriously hope that this problem is solved soon. Because the program I use for these drawings can't save them as gif files.
>>24110234It's a roundabout way of doing things, but save the .png files, open them in paint, and save as .gif. See if that works.
>>24110287Tried it.Dunno, it seems to fuck up the image quality.
>>24110234This seems to be happening a lot lately what with breaking the extension and greentexting.
>>24110324Better than nothing.
>>24110324Yeah. Gifs are the most compressed format out of the three.
>>24110209A better thing to ask might be where the body of the spy(rapist?) you killed is, if they ask why just say he has some cool augs that we want, this might also lead us to Javak.
>>24110008>http://i.imgur.com/kzHEoWG.png4chan not working for you and most of the people who were here yesterday not being around is not the best possible time for the quest. When it ended yesterday, most people, including me, assumed it would continue next week.Could you call it quits and continue at another time when you can actually properly post the image. Keep the few last pictures that didn't come through properly now and repost them next time?>>24106210This is the kind of shit I mean. This is the best quest on /tg/ at current time, even if the audience seems kind of limited. It does not deserve to be buried into the last pages.
>>24110491That is what I was kinda planning to do.I also got work tomorrow, so I can't really stay up late anyways.It was however, good that this thread stayed here for today, so that I had the time to properly tie up this session and make that animation thing.Basically, you and Joey are packing up, and about to leave the two ladies.We will continue next week.
Woo! Freak Quest!>>24110576Awww...
>>24110576Ok, great, I'm looking forward to it!
