Your mind races. Hunger. Food. You want to eat, to devour, to grow. Beneath you you see movement, a shape walking down the steel corridor you have been hiding in. You burst forth from the vent, serpentine body uncoiling, and land on the base of the thing's spine, teeth first. It spasms as you tear apart it's nervous system and feel yourself grow smarter as you eat. You have a sense of... you.You pause for a moment to think. You are a wormlike thing, two metres in length, little more then a mouth and a tail. Your body is covered in fleshy wriggling bits. You are halfway through eating something you decide to call a human. One of several you have seen.Then the Hunger overtakes you, and you continue eating.You have a choice to make, you realise:>Pick one:>It's eyes - You can only see in monochrome, but this creature can see three different colours.>It's spine - A way of organising it's nerves, of protecting them. You would become harder to harm.>It's form - You could make yourself look like it does, but with none of it's abilities. A disguise, of sorts.>Choices will unlock future options for growth. A spine will allow limbs, and such.
Spine! We need to move, first. And then we can sprout the other abilities.
>>25023529>It's spine - A way of organising it's nerves, of protecting them. You would become harder to harm.Trichromatism is over rated, we've got hiding spots, maybe even a vent system, we don't need a disguise just yet. Besides, spines allow us to do so much more.
>>25023529Spine. Prioritize protection of our weakest parts.
>>25023529We need some backbone!
I concur with the ministers of spine
Your flesh ripples and shifts. Your biology changes as a spine forms inside yourself. You feel ever so slightly safer.>+5 to not-dying checks where a spine would help.You finish gobbling down your meal, the dark liquid from it's body spreading across the floor. The floor plate you are resting on shakes, and something begins to flash, casting light around the corridor. You sense movement behind you. Another human! It stops running and points at you, mouth moving.>roll 1d100 for combat actions, should you choose to take them.

Rolled 87>>25023768We should become an exceedingly phallic creature that controls people from inside the depths of their butts.
You leap at the human, and sink your teeth into it's neck. It starts gurgling, trying to pull you off with it's gangly arms. It reaches for something on the wall, then collapses, dead. You are driven to devour it, tearing it into small pieces spraying more dark liquid around.Soon you are finished, both you and the walls are covered in errant pieces of human. As you finish the scraps, you have another choice:>It's ears - this human was waving it's mouth, perhaps there is a sense you don't yet have?>limbs - the concept intrigues you.
>>25023788>phallic creature>not shaped like a tongue.

>>25023800We need a sense of hearing to complement the rest. Limbs can come later.

>>25023800Them ears. Having arms is useless unless we can hear the humans death noises when we strangle it.
>>25023800Voting for ears
>>25023800Ears. While arms would be great, hearing things coming is always useful in the hunt.
>>25023800We need to hear their screams.
>>25023800Not to be an ass, but its is the possessive for singular nouns. "It's" is a contraction for "it is."
>>25023800Ears, we were lucky we felt the floor move this time.
You gain rudimentary hearing. A sound echos throughout the corridor: Wailing, high and low, over and over. It seems to accompany the flashes.Something interrupts it: We are under attack, all hands man stations. This is not a drill. Three pirate ships are inbound, ETA two minutes. Repeat: We are under attack, all hands man stations. You don't understand it. Perhaps they have found you?You are at a crossroads in the corridor, still unsated, forever hungry. To the left you can see a heavy door behind which you can hear heavy thuds: footsteps. To the right the passage goes dark, you can hear a low hum from that direction.
>>25023921Are there any vents near the floor we can squeeze into? Our only strength is our surprise, right now.
>>25023921Move to the darkness, ambush the fuck out of any asshole that wanders by
>>25023921To the low hum!
>>25023921Crawl back in vent and stalk filth.
>>25023921If we can drag the bodies to the right, to the dark passage, do so, it would not be good for our prey to know they are hunted.Then we'll go looking for a vent system to explore.
>>25023921PLOT TWISTAlso, we should probably go lurk moar in the dark, so let's go right.
>>25023930There are vents that you could hide in, back the way you came.
>>25023940Always take the third option.
>>25023921Find somewhere to hide.A vent, among some piping, whatever.
>>25023938Here. In light of >>25023956, changing my vote to INTO THE VENTS!
>>25023956We hide out in the vents. Maybe move through them and search for a lone target.
>>25023956Into the vents we go. We've got to use em while we're small enough to do so
So we're kinda like The Thing?
>>25023944There are no bodies. You ate them. There is just blood and gore.
>>25024020If the thing had a definite form, sure
You twist and crawl back the way you came, grabbing onto a pipe and hefting yourself up into the vent you first dove out of. You crawl through the vents, and find yourself above the crossroads, covered in the blood of your second kill.The heavy door cycles and opens, and four beings pass through, two human and two... other. One looks human, but has green skin. The other is very different, a soft body with eight limbs, each reaching as if with a mind of it's own. They all smell delicious.They stop near the expanding pool of dark liquid. Oh god, what the fuck happened here?They seem to be panicking.The vents seem to follow the same basic layout as the corridor, so you can go either left or right, or burst out into the middle of them.
>>25024076observe the beings for a while to see what they do
>>25024076OI, I THOUGHT WE ONLY SAW IN MONOCHROME
>>25024076There are too many here. Let's... scare them. See if they'll split up. Make a noise- a screech, or a growl if we can. Maybe even one of those sounds they're making.
Rolled 99>>25024076If the alien creatures have mouths, slip into the one that looks most accessible. Try to be sneaky.
>>25024076Don't burst out on them, there's too many, choose our prey carefully.Watch them for a bit, observe, and then head to the right.
>>25024076Tough one. I'm going to say left towards whatever the group left behind.
>>25024076Are they carrying any weapons?
>>25024076Let's not burst out now. Our urge to gorge ourselves on the fleshthings can wait. Let's track them through the vents.>>25024125Nevermind.
>>25024125Oh god this rollLets do this

Then it speaks at the wall: We've found a pool of blood on deck 4, no sign of who ever's it is though.Then it barks a sharp order to the others, and the group head off down the first corridor, where you killed your first.They are in single file, looking around worriedly. The human who spoke is at the back. You have but a moment before they come across the pool of blood there, as well.You know that you could pounce, right as that last one passes below you, and fill its throat with your body, muffling him, so it could not communicate.

You dive into the trailing human, teeth first. He doesn't even have time to gurgle as you tear out his vocal chords. The other three reach the first blood puddle and stop, but you're not paying attention to them anymore.You writh about, eating the human from the inside out, his head loling from his neck, disconnected when you ate his spine. Your tail hangs out of his neck, wriggling as you fufil your desires.You haven't even half et it when you feel a lance of heat slice through your (and the human's) body.>Do you:>Continue eating.>Continue devouring.>Continue tearing the flesh of your kill.>Other?

Rolled 35>>25024483I concur, yet I believe we should position ourselves to burst out hastily if need be.

It takes all of your newfound willpower to resist the urge to claw into the flesh that surrounds you.You pull your tail inside the creature, and feel another burst of heat as that strange thing again lances into your tail. You plan to wait a moment, before bursting out, but as another ray of heat scorches the body you realise you might not have time. You burst out and slither into the dark corridor.You travel some way, hearing shouts from behind you, and dive into an opening. Flashes of light fly down the corridor from behind you, illuminating the bare steel walls.The room you have entered is dark, but punctuated by many small but bright lights. Your poor eyesight makes it hard to see anything above the human's waist height, where most of the lights are. Humming comes from numerous dark metal boxes, spaced evenly throughout the room. You curl up behind one of the boxes.You appear to be leaking fluid. Your nervous systems is safe, thanks to your new spine. The siren continues to wail. You are hungry.
>>25024676Hide, listen for it anyone is coming, look for a good ambush position.

>>25024887anybody*Fucking double negatives
OP come on bro wanna eat the goobers.
You know that you will heal slowly with time, or faster when you eat. Your interrupted meal was unfinished, not enough to give you any new abilities, but you do feel yourself healing because of it. You estimate that the bleeding will stop in 1 minute, and the pain soon after. It will take at least 10 minutes to heal fully.You hear shouting from the corridor: Get security down here, we can't deal with whatever that thing is.You look around the room. There is a vent, high on the wall across from you, past the door.You gnaw on the metal box. You make a circular bite indentation. It tastes like metal. You don't think your biology can make use of metal... as it currently stands.A shaky light approaches from down the corridor Goddamnit why do I have to be the one to-. The light stops, and shines into the room. You cannot see what is behind it, as it's brightness blinds you. [Can't see it in the server room. There is a strange, distorted reply. [Well no, I'm not going to go in and check!]
>>25024952attack. eat. then go to the vent.

Rolled 64>>25024952If he comes in, sneak up on him and eat his eyes out.
You wait, cowering behind the metal box.The creature steps into the room, the blinding light sweeping back and forth.Ah fuck me. Fuuuuuck me.>Roll 1d100 for sneak killing.

>rolls are not so good...You coil up, ready to spring, waiting behind your metal box. The creature's light suddenly swings around and lights you up!Blindly you leap towards it and your teeth sink into something hard and metalic. It tastes foul.You feel yourself and the thing you have bitten be thrown across the room, and the cone of light vanishes when it hits the floor.Lances of heat fly out from the creature, lighting up the room in flashes. You slither as best you can towards the metal boxes, but the shots are getting closer.The creature is still in the centre of the room.It's here, somebody fuckning help me!

Rolled 68>>25025166So... I'm thinking into the vents again? And since we appear to be getting shot up, maybe explore a little more away from the areas we've been seen in
>>25025166right, lets kill him quick. Manuevar around the boxes then go for his legs so he can't run. Once hes down on the ground he is meat for the slaughter.

You snake around behind the boxes until you are behind the creature, who you now realise to be the striped alien. More lances of heat fly out from it towards where you were.You dart forwards and embed your teeth in it's leg, causing it to scream. It sounds as delicious as it tastes.You go for it's chest next, clawing through layers of fat, muscle and bone. It screams over and over. At least until your get to it's lungs. You bite into it's heart, killing it.You want to leave to go to the vent, but you have exhausted your willpower, and your instincts take over. You gorge yourself.>Its eyes - Colour vision.>Its arms - Rudimentary limbs.>Its mind - More willpower to resist your bestial urges.The floor shudders again, and the alarm changes tone.

Rolled 10We need that mind, we've proven quite capable physically, with minor fuck ups.Now we need some intelligence to back up our brutality.
Just thought of this, but we should probably figure out what deck we're on. You know, to better avoid the shit out of Deck 6. Also, if we're up against pirates, they'd want to perform a boarding action right? I figure eventually we can make our way to their ship and hitch a ride to somewhere else
>>25025363Limbs if it entails more than two, Mind otherwise.
>>25025510Our eyes are fine for right now. Mind upgrades will be better to get in good commands and such, as we seem to me more than capable of killing everything we've met so far.
You feel your mind grow and change. You reign in your bestial urge, and cage it. You tame yourself.You finish gobbling up the chunks of flesh on the floor and climb up into the vent. It's dark here, and you feel much safer.You explore a short distance. These vents are different, full of metal snake-like things. They branch off and travel in many directions.Beneath you you hear a rythmic thump, which stops in the room behind you.Fuck. That thing got Vassi. Spread out, cover each other.You see many bright lights, moving about.>Roll 1d100 to navigate the vent system.>Are you trying to find anything in particular?>Or do you want to stay behind?

A few minutes later, you are thoughly lost in the networks of tunnels. You feel your self Hunger, but quench that though. Then, as you pass a small grating you see the eight limbed thing from before. It is quivering slightly, as it pokes at things on another metal box. Beyond it you can see rows and rows of boxes, streching off into the distance.All right, we're rigged to jettison cargo, ma'am. We just need time to clear everyone out.You are beginning to understand a little of the creature's speech. It seems to be in a hurry to leave.

You watch the creature, which does more things to the box with lights in front of it. Another siren sounds out in the large cavern. Evacuate the cargo hold. Evacuate the cargo hold. It repeats a short message over and over.The creature turns around and you slip out of the vent to follow it. It reaches a heavy door and you prepare to strike...But as it closes the door, it looks behind itself, and sees you! You leap, but it's too late, and it's many limbs fly up infront of you, and catch you. You struggle against it, but it's very strong...>Roll 1d100 to best it!

Rolled 96>>25026012strangle its sissy ass
>>25026068High is good. You have not been rolling so well this time.>>25026035Whelp...You writhe and struggle, and manage to sink your teeth into one of the limbs. Then suddenly there is a slam, and the door seals shut, with you and the one squigly limb on one side, and the creature on the other. You can hear it's pained squeals through the door, as it's arm begins to spasm, dropping you.You are all alone on the floor in the corner of the cavern full of boxes. The limb is twitching on the ground beside you. You want to eat it.Cargo bay cycling. Stand clear. You hear a dull wooshing noise, and the air gets thinner. It's probably a good thing you don't breathe.You are hungry.

Holy shit, the dice gods have finally decided to be benevolent. I didn't know such a thing was possible.

Rolled 49>>25026012>>250260742nd roll, our average isn't so good right now.Ripping apartSevering fleshGouging eyesTearing limb from limb!
Rolled 26>>25026186Eat the arm and stick to the strongest thing we can find that also has a good hiding place.
>>25026186This is not indulging my invulnerable demon fantasy.Eat limb real quick and jump back into vent. Get daffuq outta here.
>>25026186>You want to eat it.Let's do that then.
Rolled 32>>25026186Quickly try to find something to wrap ourselves around and hold the fuck on. After swallowing that arm whole.
>>25026186Oh. Don't need to breathe. Neat. So... Eat the limb, then fuck off to the vents?
Rolled 60>>25026186Eat the flesh and try to burrow thru the door maybe
Rolled 86>>25026186Take the limb and gtfo the way we came.
Rolled 83Eat that limb, proceed to the nearest vent and get the fuck out of here. If the vents have been blocked, anchor ourself to the nearest bolted down object by wrapping ourself around it and chomping with our JAWS OF STEEHL.
Rolled 98>>25026186Is the limb stuck in the door? if not, BACK TO THE VENT/BITE HARD ON SOMETHING NEARBY
Rolled 9>>25026186get back into the vents, we don't want to be sucked out into vacuum.
Rolled 95>>25026186store the arm in your gullet and fucking bail, eat it once inside the vent.

This thread is nerfed as fuck.
Rolled 68Eat arm, hop into vent. Track the fuck out of now seven limbed creature and devour it.
Rolled 64>>25026361YES DO EET
>>25026331What do you mean?
You tear into the limb, devouring it's flesh. It is tasty, but there is something missing, and it doesn't teach you anything.Then the siren bursts into a wail, painfully loud.Emergency override triggered. Venting cargo bay atmosphere.The floor of the cavern opens below you, revealing an expanse of inky blackness, punctuated by pinpricks of light. Air and boxes rush out, as if pulled by some unknown force.You reach for the only thing within reach, the metal piping on the door behind you, but you can't get a good grip on it's smooth and hardened surface. You slip, and are flung outside along with everything else.You collide with one of the boxes, thin and lightweight, and sink your teeth into it.Perhaps that was a bad time to eat.Behind you you see a bright light, burning hot, retreating away from you and the debris that float around you.Then another two large things arrive from behind, and you feel yourself pulled towards them, and see that everything nearby is pulled as well.You bite a hole in the box and hide inside.>[END OF THREAD]>Questions/queries/comments?
Rolled 81>>25026400So we fucked up and died, or are you gonna continue at some point?
Rolled 93>>25026400Spectacular...ly anticlimactic.
>>25026400Do you take the first roll that gets in, or do you take the best out of X, or what?
Terrible thread. Downhill since. >>25023800We should have been upgraded like 5 times by now, and should have controlled them by crawling up asses.
>>25026400When is your next session? Is we ded?
>>25026400Well it was interesting as fuck.
Someone with writing skills start a new thread so we can take vengeance on stupid eight arms
>>25026400That ending feels awfully abrupt. I realize that the players need to be allowed to fuck up horribly from time to time but sticking them in an unescapable airlock (with no way to roll to get out of it) is not the fun way to do it.
It's obvious that we're not fucking dead. They vented the cargo, which the pirates are now picking up, us with it.
Rolled 60>>25026444A million times this.
>>25026447Feels like a ROCK FALLS EVERYONE DIES kinda feeling
>>25026460I like you,You can read.
>>25026424>>25026444>>25026452Powering up that fast would get boring really fast, mind control enemas are fucking stupid, and the writing isn't that bad.Also, stop samefagging.
>>25026460This. Jesus, I thought it was pretty obvious too
>>25026469But you should've chosen to grab onto something instead of chewing on an arm.Besides you didn't really die, per se, from what I gather you're being sucked up into some other ship. Pirates possibly? Scavengers? The ones who created you, checking out the results? Who knows.
>>25026460It's still written in the wrong way. People want to read about this biological weapon wreaking havoc and devouring. We killed what, two people? It's not fun.
>>25026481>mind control enemas are fucking stupidOne of those things that you think is understood without needing to be said, yet here we are
>>25026460>>25026497It's pretty obvious that the box is going to be picked up, it's just that I'd rather have read about eight arms being eaten.
>>25026400Will someone please archive this thread?
>>25026499>what are different tastesI personally enjoyed it, it was much more interesting than loli quest #572, even though we didn't cause much havoc.
>>25026447You got ejected because you chose to eat, instead of going to the vent first.>>25026440Thanks.>>25026425You are not dead.>>25026424I realised I was flagging, which is why I am calling a thread end here. I would like to continue, but don't believe I can offer any quality to what I write from here on out.Also, you never had the ability to control things by being inside them. That is an ability you'd need to steal, by eating parasites or something. You can currently do little more then move and eat.>>25026422I took an eyeballed average at the time I started writing, usually 2-5 minutes after replies started.
>>250264994. And great things have small beginning
>>25026499Was this "Ultimate power alien omnomnom quest"? No. Starting as an oversized earthworm should have clued you in that we're not playing as a god of death.
>>25026460I think the reason everybody assumed we're dead was because OP stated only "Two large things" approach us, which most thought meant two engines.
>>250264994 or 5
>>25026548Also, you know, we're in the vacuum of space in a shipping crate with a bite hole in it.
>>25026534Anon who asked about the rolls here. Gotcha. Would you consider going with a best of X system, or would you prefer sticking with the current one?
>>25026548I think you're overthinking this, people really don't have as much imagination as you do.
>>25026534So, you've decided not to continue writing this quest then? If that's the case, then I agree with >>25026444 this guy, I'd love to see this continued.
>>25026548Well, considering that the ship is being attacked by pirates, pirates are almost always there for the loot, and we were attached to said loot, it seemed pretty obvious to me what was going on.
>>25026590Notice how OP never said, "YOU ARE DIED."? And actually had us perform an action before ending the thread?
>>25026548It was meant to be two ships. Apologies. As I said, my writing skill is falling off as I tire.>>25026593I should formalise a system. I suppose I should also finalise the rules. Will do for next time.>>25026605Speaking of next time. I would like to continue, but won't be able to for at least 4 days.I have a twitter @solartopee where I will post updates.
>>25026641>won't be able to for at least 4 days: (
>>25026641Rolls anon again. Cool, thanks for the neat quest. Looking forward to the next one
>>25026641What the fuck is Monstergirl Sky Pirates?
>>25026597>>25026607It's just a postulation as to why there was such an extreme backlash.>>25026641I understand the need for ambiguity, and I actually prefer that you refer to objects in generic terms rather than specifics because we don't know everything.
>>25026670Another quest he ran, once upon a time. It is exactly as it says on the tin.
>>25026670It's a quest that was run by this same guy.Check the archives.
>>25026684>Check the archives.>>25026699>Check the archives.Speaking of archives, is anyone archiving this thread?
>>25026641As a bonus, octoalien would have given you a choice of:>Limbs - Why get just four?>Language - How are these beings communicating anyway?>Suckers - Stick to all kinds of things!>>25026670A quest I ran last year. Was a little bit complex, and it stalled when my life got too busy to keep up.>>25026680I appreciate the comments. It is a balance I need to strike, and if I miss, it is important that you enquire, so that I might clarify.Next thread will begin with the cargo being picked up by the pirate vessels, and them being investigated by delicious delicious fleshbags.
>>25026757>and them being investigated by delicious delicious fleshbags.Sounds awesome
>>25026757>delicious delicious fleshbags.WE HUNGER

To anyone still hanging around, what sorts of things do you want to devour next? What sort of abilities do you want to gain?
>>25027490I want us to become a sapient parasite. Hide in someone's body, talk into their mind, make them go mad...
>>25027490Something with a little defense,chitin armor, maybe some bio-electricity.
>>25027574bioelectricity is coolI'm thinking something like tentacles and we lie in wait and then constrict them to death-when I say constrict I mean rapidly break all their bones and crush their internal organs.-camouflage-ability to spawn little parasite things from pustule on you that could act as a distraction/attack people. (could maybe hide in dead bodies?)-some kind of webbing fluid perhaps?-a fucking tail that stings people, resulting in them swelling up and exploding in a shower of gore and bone shrapnel
>>25027490Higher intelligence, maybe enough to to start leading them space pirates
>>25027490incredible sense of smell to the point where it can somewhat detect emotions like fear?-release a pheromone that either induces fear or causes people to wander towards the pleasant smell?
>>25027490How about a hallucinogenic poison? We're a little low on mobility right now, but maybe later on we can get a little nibble on someone, bail out, watch the chaos as they start flipping shit, and clean up what's left.
>>25027817not OP but cool idea, get some kind of biomorph that allows us to grab them and hold them while we inject the poison, let them go and watch them go nuts as they slowly and excruciatingly die.
>>25027490multiple joints, or something that allows us to fit into tiny cramped spaces and then shoot out.
>>25027490finally, ability to detect shit through walls.
Rolled 25>>25028131To anyone lurking here.
>>25026757Monstergirl sky pirates was awesomeLots of fun>>25027490I would have loved suckersI think tentacles, paralytic venom ( whether spat, shot in spines or by contact ) and bio electricity sound fun and very useful given the shipboard environment
>>25027773We shall copulate with them to assume direct control and spawn moreChrist that is going full Bernie territory there...
>>25028762I'm afraid I don't follow what you mean by "Bernie".
>>25028953Read Zerg Quest. If you dare. It was in the first half dozen threads. Later on Bernie turned into a planet-raping Zerg swarm.
>>25029488Poor Bernie. In the end we couldn't let him keep doing what he's doing.
Great quest OP. Don't know why some people are being faggots.Although, I think it was premature to let us (the players) read what the crew were talking about. We should have started understand a little bit only after we upgraded the mind.
