>Previous threads can be found here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Bioweapon%20Quest>Welcome to Bioweapon quest, a game which is (mostly) about small scale tactical combat, and getting deadlier.>Don't be afraid to jump in if you are new!You are a creature of simple desires. You desire to eat things. With every delicious thing you eat you grow, morph and change.You are currently hunting delicious creatures. You were trying to accelerate your offspring's birth when you were interrupted by five armored invaders. You lured a pair of them into a forest, a room in the labyrinthine house of your creator. You successfully ambushed the flier with a net, and ate him to gain a wicked stinging tail.
A silph was following the flier, and it is this one that you now stalk. You have attacked it a few times, retreating from it's phaser after striking a few times. Your chest and right wing are in a small amount of pain, where your scales have been seared after a taking a few blasts, but thankfully your armor provided protection from the grazing hits. You tried to poison the creature with your deadly toxin, but it didn't seem to have any effect on the creature's wooden flesh.Your last attack has left it crippled, a powerful tail strike shattered one of the creature's legs. As it limps towards the door, and the other intruders, it pulls a fist sized object from a pouch and throws it over its shoulder. The weighty object hits a passing bird and both it and the bird land at your feet.The bird is green with red patches, and goes squark.The device is grey with a flashing red light. It is whining with rising pitch.>What do you do?>Roll 1d100 for reaction speed!

Rolled 52>>26968156Oh Yeah Bioweapon quest! Time to eat fools and fuck bitches.
Rolled 81>>26968144I was waiting for this thread.
>>26968156Punt that bomb back
Rolled 20>>26968156FUCK GRENADEKICK THAT SHIT BACK AT HER
Rolled 25>>26968208>>26968192Well that's two positive rolls, excluding mine of course>>26968240And a roll for this
Rolled 3>>26968156Ignore the whine-y thing! Sprint to the Silph and pounce her at full speed!
>>26968144Dodge in a way towards the victim i guess.
Rolled 66>>26968192>>26968208C-Can we use these rolls Toque?
Rolled 2>>26968269Muh roll
Rolled 30Launch ourselves at the silph. Use suped up reaction time to ride the blast if we are still in proximity of it.
Rolled 54>>26968301That was close, we were almost mortally wounded.
>>26968240>>26968251Make sure to give them obscene gestures while doing so.
>>26968368I don't think we really understand that concept yet.
Rolled 76>>26968156Hey Toque! How's it going? I'm not going to be able to stay all night, sadly. Gotta get my sleep schedule ready for school.AndDIVE AWAY FROM THE GRENADE
>>26968409We did it like twice yesterday. Our broods mother tought us.
>>26968463No, we know the gesture, we just don't understand the concept.
>>26968174>Poison glands should be [2/3]You don't like this. Flashing whining things have been bad news every time you've experienced them in your short, but eventful, experience.You spin around and kick the flashing stone (and the bird) which goes flying towards the green armored figure. It sails between the trees as it's siren reaches a crescendo. It explodes before it's gone the whole way, and a huge blue fireball erupts from the air around it.You duck behind a tree to avoid the mess of flaming branches and leaves that the explosion tosses your way and then scurry through the charred underbrush. You find the silph thrown up against the wall, unconcious. It's armor is singed and it's leaves are smouldering. You can almost feel it's deliciousness slipping away.
>>26968251No! That might destroy the deliciousness!Charge, kill, eat!
Rolled 15>>26968434This is why i'm glad he said today and not Monday since i scheduled my classes on Tuesday and Thursday.>>26968463We didn't understand it really and we were copying it, plus we spent hours staring at a mirror.
>>26968484Eat it quickly! But be wary if it might wake up.
>>26968484Is there back up around? If not chow down.
Rolled 57>>26968484CONSUUUUUUUUMEsad no shadow quest tonight. Oh well. BWQ and Lamias instead.
Rolled 41>>26968484Devour before the deliciousness leaves.
Rolled 66>>26968484drag it into the underbrush so no one can really come across you then FEED.
>>26968522There was a mutant hobo quest, which was fairly entertaining.
>>26968497 >Instead you give the group a gesture to indicate you would like to mate with them.We know enough.
>>26968559indeed that it was, lamia child quest is getting good, and I'll be damned if bioweapon didn't come back :D Its been a great day
Rolled 39>>26968559I remember seeing a Hobo Samurai/Shogun quest a while back, but I don't think it made it past thread 1.I'm a summerfag myself, and this is also my first year of 4chan. It's gonna be harder for me to follow quests come a week or two.
>>26968604If your that new you should probably take those numbers off your name, that gives people a reason to get pissed off at you
You grab the thing by it's shattered and charred armor, and drag it into the underbrush as quickly as you can; its deliciousness is draining from it just as its yellow sap does. When you get out of immediate sight you bite down on the things neck, unwilling to wait any longer. Your teeth dig into the oaken flesh and your mandibles crush it. You feel the Deliciousness catch as it dies. You begin to bite and claw, tearing the armor off and consuming the Delicious creature in chunks.>Pick one of:>Neck - Allows you to look in a direction other then forwards. Good for scouting.>Upright posture - change your stance! Provides bonuses to social, and changes how you fight.>Leafy bits - Forest camouflage. False leaves and sticks, and green and brown colouration. Other uses unknown. Twig puns +10Birds sing, all around you.
>>26968604if you go to the archives, you'll be able to find any and all quest threads. A few personal favorites of mine are psion quest, lamia child, future cyborg(cant remember the name off hand) just to name a few favorites. You may not be able to be in the thread, but you'll keep up
>Upright posture - change your stance! Provides bonuses to social, and changes how you fight.I think this is the best choice for now.
>>26968604Look up stuff by Exabyte. He's one of the only questers to finish any of his work.
>>26968640Neck is better
Rolled 23>>26968640>Leafy bits - Forest camouflage. False leaves and sticks, and green and brown colouration. Other uses unknown. Twig puns +10Posture is annoying. I'm not good at it.
>>26968691>>26968682>>26968674How is this better than neck?Since we aren't trying to be that social.
>>26968690Agreed, but still pissed about the ending to psion quest, shitty ending, but good overall
>>26968640>Voice.All of the rest are useless, but with a stolen voice we can trick the others.
>>26968738it allows us to use guns and doors.
>>26968640I bet those Leafy bits would help our Solar powerednessbut...>Upright posture please
>>26968748I change my vote to this.
>>26968640>Upright posture>>26968747Psion Quest is probably his weakest work.
>>26968738>Changes how you fightI dont think you understand how useful an upright posture is, why do you thing humans are so fucking hard to kill by some animals?They cant reach our important bits
>>26968640Neck.>>26968748You wouldnt say that if you didnt have a neck.
>>26968738Social is to make little monstrosities.
>>26968747He is bad at endings in general, but at least they exist.
>>26968782was still a good quest, but a lot of seemed.......well filler, and fan service
>>26968789But what if they go straight for your dick?
>>26968806It was a slice of life bit. I couldn't stomach it honestly.
>>26968827when we eat things we regenerateI thought this was common knowledge now
>>26968765we can already hold guns and open doors good enough and i believe a neck is more useful than upright posture.,
Rolled 11Changing my vote to either Neck or Leafy bits.>>26968765We can already use those, dude.>>26968789We haven't had trouble pouncing things and tearing out necks of previous victims.
>>26968862>we can already use gunswe have to roll just to hold themeven then we fumble with them so much we can barely aim the damn things
Your spine twists and cracks, lengthening and changing. Your arms shift forwards and your wings backwards. You stand only slightly shorter then a human, as your head is nestled between your shoulders. You can balance on two legs now, leaving your hands free for other tasks. Like killing. You giggle excitedly.Before you are the charred and shredded remains of the silph's green combat armor. She was carrying numerous pouches with electronic devices, though some were broken in your feasting fervor. You also see her phaser lying on the forest floor, near the doorway that leads back to the hangar, and the other intruders.
>>26968640Didn't we kill two of these already?If so i think you never mentioned their weaknesses or did you drop it after fighting the space crabs.>>26968900True but we are more physical fighters.
>>26968918PICK THAT SHIT UPITS TIME TO SHOOT THINGS
Rolled 6>>26968918GRAB DA LAZER/PHASER THINGY
>>26968918Can we pick up the phaser now?
>>26968918grab the gun. the electronic bits coulda been useful with a Knowledge absorbtion but we'll have to wait for it instead.
Rolled 98>>26968918Take phaser and drag body near other intruders for trap.
>>26968850But do we really want to go through having our dick bitten off again?>>26968853But what if they bite through your pants?
>>26968969can this roll count as the needed to move the body silently?
>>26968978Pain also doesnt really seem to bother usJust makes us want to eat more
>>26968640>>Leafy bits - Forest camouflage. False leaves and sticks, and green and brown colouration. Other uses unknown. Twig puns +10Stick it to the man!Upright posture.We do the evolution now! lots of things have necks anyway
>>26969004I think that's our general reaction to most stimuli.
>>26968969We ate the body dude.Hey what did we get from that acid spitting gun thing again?
So is anyone of the intruders going to take a dip in Elizas pool?
>>26969055I think we got a sonic attack. Screaming. We can now scream. We broke a mirror with it.
>>26969055how about the remains then?We can still use them for a trap.>>26969073I forgot we have that, it can be useful.
>>26968918We need to find the extra delicious one. The one that shoots deliciousness. Then eat it.
>>26969132Indeed. We should try it next time we see one of those elephant dudes. Big ears mean big sounds right?
>>26968918Bioweapon quest? Shit negro, that's all you had to say.I reckon we attempt to use the radio and lure the rest of them out, taunt them into coming after us while we lie in wait.
>>26969132I think the sonic attack will be a good escape tool. Since it's (I think) infinite, we can use it to deafen enemies and run while they're disorientated. Also I'd REALLY like to vote for self awareness next time. I don't like that our one weakness is a mirror, no matter how cute it is
>>26969132We ate her whole body. We eat the entire body of everything we eat, the only remains are blood stains.
>>26969203Human guy looks like a good choice for that. He wouldnt have any interesting mutations anyway.
>>26968932>You got descriptions for both these creatures, one last thread and one in the past. The bioweapon's memory is only as good as yours.>>26968969>>26969000>Body? You mean the sap-smeared, splinter filled armor? or the bloody sinews tangled in the remnants of the net?You quickly tear through the undamaged pouches and find three items of interest. The small disk like device the silph was trying to talk to before, another hefty rock, which explodes in fire, and a flat screen that flashes occasionally, whenever a bird flies past.Unfortunately, you only have two hands.You snatch up one of the grab the phaser from the charred grass. Green light shines out from a tiny crack down the barrel. You ponder your next move.>Are you going to:[ ] Head back to the hangar where the other intruders were investigating the burning wreck of the air vehicle you arrived here in.[ ] Wait here in ambush.[ ] Find explore to another room (Acidic smell, or earthen smell and mechanical noises)[ ] Beg your creator for help[ ] Other?
>>26969227Didn't we leave behind rags and electronics.>>26969203But we're delicious an ex-cuddly feather ball.i really wished we went the experiment 626 route with being dangerous and extra fluffy.
>>26969306points for you for that reference!
>>26969306And getting shot to bits every five minutes?
>>26969295Oh shit, she had a motion sensor! We can use that!Take the motion sensor and the phaser. Totally useful. Also we have like 6 legs, right? I kinda want to put a few hands on maybe two of those, would that require a new mutation, or what?
>>26969306>I'd Just like to remind you that you can Shift biomorphs on any kill.>But I forgot!>Since you ate someone, you can either:>Heal (charred scales: chest, melted scales: wings)>Recharge bioweapon (Poison glands [2/3])>Shift biomorphs (Gain one, lose one)
>>26969295Blood smeared armour for trap.Also grab the motion sensor and communicator it could be useful.So my vote is going back towards intruders and bring bloody armour to freak them out.
>>26969370We could always hold the bomb in our mouth. What could possibly go wrong!>Please do not do this.
>>26969306We could still go back to feathers. Stealthy silent flying phaser-armed death.
>>26969391Will those damaged biomorphs heal because of our heart?
>>26969391Heal or paper making if we can do that instead.
>>26969295Can we don the shitty remnants of the silph's armour now that we are bipedal? If we do does it provide protection against phasers? If so strap on that tac vest. If not take the motion/heartbeat sensor (good to get the drop on them) and the grenade.As much as I would love to go and explore the other rooms that can be done later, best we not let our offspring's host get fucked up. Back the way we came to the hangar whilst checking the radar.
>>26969306lilo and stitch, well played good sir.
>>26969356Eh with the right evolution that problem can be solved.>>26969416Nah the scales are more important right now maybe we can change once we get to the last intruder.
>>26969438I think the communicator is more useful than the grenade and we probably don't know how to use it.
>>26969472Feathers are better for stealth. But scales protect us from death.I, personally, want to move away from ambush predator, and become tougher, so we can actually tank hits without getting hurt.
>>26969502the grenade i meant for use.
>>26969472I reckon we go stealth on the telepath/psionic/psychic dude, trying to brute force it will only get us fucked up. We can deal with that after the next kill though.
>>26969502 they don't know that though
>>26969509I find it more fun when we are playing like xenomorhps and going full tank has gotten us hurt and near death too many times.
>>26969426>Eventually.>>26969370>Two arms, two wings, two legs. Your wings do have digits, but it would be awkward to fly while holding things in them, and they're not in a particularly good place to shoot from, or look at. Since they're on your back.>>26969432>Paper making is full.>>26969438>The armor is quite damaged, you'd need time and effort to find something to basically strap it onto yourself. Also, You don't really have the hips needed to fill it out.>post incoming.
>>26969552True but the chance to over hear their plans is to good to give up.
>>26969516Hard to stealth when he can tell you are there without seeing you.>>26969564In fairness thats because we were trying to tank without any real defensive mutations.
>>26969564We should hold off on the tanking. Tanking is for expendable minions. We should totally have got that mutation from the cyborg ape... Ah well. Eating metal is awesome too.
>>26969603Oh, I thought we had six legs. My bad.
>>26969603That's it, next evo I want child-bearing hips. We broodmother now
>>26969644I think we had six legs and on pair turned into wings.
>>26969628Pretty much this. When we started evolving, we became an ambush predator because of our size. We got all caught up in social upgrades though, and when we changed size, we didn't have as many good defenses and weapons as we should have.
>>26969603>Hips:Increased protection, increased social, Increased sexual finesse
>>26969628touche, I forgot about that.>>26969610you make a good point, the grenade may do more harm then good.
>>26969628Also, we tend to fight stupid sometimes. We have acid spit, why are we not spitting at people's eyes using hyper reflexes!?
>>26969672not the guy you replied to, but I also thought we had 6 legs, fuck the wings, next time we need to shift out another pair of arms.
So am i the only one that still wants to be an ambush predator like The Creeper in Jeapers creepers.
>>26969732Bioweapons are for emergencies, since we have to recharge them separately. They're useful when we feel outmatched.
with our whip tail, poison and the fact that we like to go on cielings more often then not I thought we were an ambush predator.
>>26969758Despite the fact that those attacks have been the most successful ones thus far, /tg/ is too impatient for strategy.
>>26969757We did have 6 legs but two of them became legs and another two became wings.
>>26969757the wings are hella useful for moving around areas. All we need to do is find another octo our squid for additional limbs.
>>26969785We are and we get most of our kills though ambush, but there are some of us who want us to be something else.
>>26969757But But wings!>>26969758That dude was also super hard to kill. Besides just because we make ourselves bigger and tougher it doesnt mean we cant still ambush dudes.
>>26969844True, but he never truly dies based on what we learn in the sequel movie.
>>26969844We can only steal mutations from others, so, unless we run into some giants, I think 'Medium sized' is as big as we're getting. Which is fine, we can be like those fucked up things from Xcom that inject their acid babies directly into your neck
There is a difference between wanting to turn into a tank and wanting to be able to tank a few hits.
The sad part is that we're quickly reaching biomorph limit. We're either going to need to go up a size or start putting some of our stuff into storage.Though getting more limbs WILL let us do more.
>>26969821yeah I guess, our increased bulk sort of dictates that wings are necessary for getting around.I'd be pretty keen for some tentacles tbh. no tentacle rape pls /tg/
>>26969898True, but gaining size will be harder for us to hide and just make us bigger targets.
>>26969644>At one point you did. Then two became wings, and just now you gained two arms.>Fully healed.So many things, you can't just leave them here. You snatch up the explosive and the motion sensor with your wings, and hold the phaser and communicator in your hands. You grab the remnants of the silph's armor in your mandibles, and begin dragging it back towards the hangar.The trip is short and uneventful, filled only with the scraping of ceramic plates and the rubber soled shoes across the matte black surface of your creator's home. You pass the caustic smelling room, and the sounds of mechanical clatter.The hangar is dimly lit, and many thin walls obscure vision across it. You see smoke rising from the damaged aerodyne, engine apparently still on fire.The communicator crackles and a voice speaks out from it."Struth, you'll never believe what we've found in here.""What?" You hear the reply coming from both the communicator, and from over the walls near the wreck. It is laced with deliciousness."An entire swimming pool, complete with diving board.""Don't tell me you're stopping for a swim?""Yeah, I ain't diving into anything that glows green and bubbles like that.""Keep searching."Your hands are full. You are hungry.
>>26969923i suppose we could move our 'stinger' into one of our limbs.
>>26969880My dream is to get the ability to consume deliciousness at will, and the ability to remote control non-sentients.Though acid babies are cool too.
>>26969923Tigers are pretty big and they are still ambush predators.
>>26969898Whoa Red, if we become Large size, that requires some heavy thought. I mean, it makes us a huge target, and we probably would have trouble moving around space ships, and junk.Though, I'm curious if our ability to change biomorphs in the field would let us suddenly decrease size from small to large on the fly, so we could go from stealth to rape assault really fast.
>>26969934lets rush the psionic
>>26969945>trouble moving around space shipswill not be a problem once we are space ship size
>>26969934I am DEEPLY interested in the Psionic as well.Let's hunt it
>>26969945Depends on how large large is.
>>26969974Then we just need to hope for biological jet packs, I guess
>>26969934is the 'swimming pool' the caustic smelling area?I vote we go after the bastard near the swimming pool, because we at least know he isn't near the psionic.Also I vote we drop the armour, it's not needed.
honestly large could mean long instead of bulky. we could be like 10 meter snake or something like that.
I bet that the psion will give us true sentience/control of our bodyim also wondering if a bet digestive system will heal us better or if better lungs would make us run faster/longer
>>26969934Drop the armour near the pool to get them distracted and head for the Psionic>>26970007The pool is acid
>>26969995We just need to eat a bunch of burgers. Its true, A doctor told me.
>>26970007Seconding all this
Rolled 83>>26969934CAREFULLY, quietly put down armor, communicator, and grenade on the ground.Carrying the motion tracker and phaser, stalk the delicious voice.The grenade might cook it, and this one is _extra-delicious_. No risks of losing this meal.
>>26969985>>26969950I think it would be wiser to pick them off one by one then deal with the psionic. he is clearly the strongest of the bunch and we don't want to get caught out if his buddies run to his aid.>>26969995that is a great idea use our fart'sto propel us a la' tremors
>>26970047im worried if we kill everyone else the psionic will run into the ship and leave.
>>26970032Worst part is this is trueAn organ that stores gasses produced during digestion that shoots the gas out of our back thus giving us extra speed
>>26970025>>26969985My vote is for these two
>>26970047 Hey, it works for the Zerg
>>26970063This is also why i think we should go for the psionic and we can also wait on their ship for an ambush.
>>26970063maybe we should frag the ship if it's landed?
>>26969923No we would just need to be super flexible bone/exoskeleton and slipperyh.
>>26970107OMG, THIS! There is no escape!
>>26969994>Large is somewhere between tiger, horse and rhino.>Further categories include Huge (mammoth) Giant and Spacewhale>>26970011>Size is by mass, and only approximate anyway. When you sprout limbs, you technically shrink a little.You scuttle back down the coridoor, to the caustic smelling room. You cough up some gobs of metal paper and stick the sap ridden armor to the wall opposite, along with an approximation of the 'I want to mate with you' gesture.>Paper making [0/1]You scuttle back to the hangar, and pull out the motion detector. The Delicious voice is in the centre of the room and seems to be pacing around the ruined aerodyne. You set down the grenade and phaser, before setting off into the maze of risen walls; there is no sense in wasting this delicious by accident.You get about halfway across the hangar when the communicator crackles into life."I am being hunted." The delicious voice echoes from two sources. "There!"Then the entire wall in front of you is wrenched off its base and flies toward you, riding a wave of Deliciousness.>Roll 1d100 for whatever you do!
>>26970113Go back to being a quadruped/snake? A murder snake can get quite big before it won't fit through halls.Body design somewhat like a chinese dragon?
Rolled 85>>26970179RUN!!I mean, TACTICAL RETREAT!
Rolled 100>>26970179Jump on that shit and pounce off it on to him.
Rolled 87>>26970179Reflex boost, jump over the wall, acid to the eyes.We've got no time to waste here.
>>26970214OUR SAVIORnobody else roll!
>>26970179fuck, we should not have put down the phaser or grenade. As shooting it is out of the question,I vote we try and get into close proximity by leap frogging from wall to wall in the hope that we can crush its juicy head in our mandibles.
>>26970179Go up and over the flying wall to get at the psychic.
Rolled 16>>26970214I love youAlso second
>>26970214>First ever 100>mfw
>>26970229>>26970214so glad I forgot to roll, lel.
>>26970179Oh man I cant wait until we spacewhale
>>26970246Oh man, you're awesome sir. Toque's sadness is our joy
Rolled 95>>26970339And our sadness is his joy.
>>26970339>Nah, this is awesome and you should all feel awesome.You react instantly, ducking to the ground as the wall flies past you. It collides with the walls behind you, and you spring onto it, leaping high into the darkness that shrouds the roof. The Delicious figure in white armor stands beside the ruined air car, three of its four arms thrust towards you, and the last holding a phaser pistol.It barely gets time to react as you soar down from above and land on it, rolling across the raised platform with it. You end up on the things chest as it lies on its back, your hands are occupied holding the devices, but that is the last thing on your mind.Driven by pure desire, you clamp your mandibles around the creature's helmet and begin to suck the Deliciousness straight out of it, drinking the delicious power.But what's this? The deliciousness is putting up a fight! It doesn't want to be eaten. This is new!>Roll 1d100 for Deliciousness battling!
Rolled 70>>26970413I AM THE DANGER! I AM THE ONE WHO EATS!
Rolled 32>>26970413WE WILL EAT YOU.
Rolled 51>>26970413OH MAN DELICIOUS PSIONICS CAN RESIST BEING DRAINED?!Quickly, suck it dry!
Rolled 40>>26970413Die you must feed our cute existence.
Rolled 45>>26970413That just means it's more delicious, bite down on the helmet and use poison to 'encourage' the deliciousness out.
Rolled 35>>26970413come get some!!!!!
Rolled 67>>26970413Use poision from our tail and roll.
>>26970458Damn it Red, roll faster!
Rolled 92>>26970453>PoisonSecond. Poison them to encourage the deliciousness out.
Rolled 73>>26970413Your struggles only feed me!
>>26970481And the head's right there, probably already covered in our metal eating saliva. It's just a case of biting down.
>>26970531Unless its ceramic armour.
we could use our tail instead to find a vulnerable joint or something.
>>26970643We could do both.
>>26970626A point. I guess we could just go ape on it with all 6 limbs, the tail, and bite down. Tearing things apart has historically been effective at liberating deliciousness.
Your caustic saliva dribbles out of your mouth as you stand there, struggling with forces you don't entirely understand. Drops land on the being's faceplate, hissing as it sears away layers of protective metal.Your mind struggles to pull, but the Deliciousness is firmly entrenched. You pull and tug, biting with teeth that don't even exist.The creature below you gains some mental ground, and two of its four arms grab you by the wings. Two more arms start slamming into your chest, punching over and over, bruising your flesh. Just as you feel your rib crack, there is another, louder crack as the faceplate gives way. Your mandibles slice right through and into the creature's face and your fangs sink into the creature's face and eye.>Deadly Neurotoxin [1/3]>cont.
>>26970717It screams, wailing echoing in the enclosed armor, filling the hangar bay. As its resolve flickers and you gobble up the Deliciousness. It fills you, sates you for just a moment and you feel respite. Then the Hunger returns, fully.The creature below you twiches as your venom flows to its brain and it dies.>Pick two of:>Delicious force - Throw your Deliciousness and hit things with it!>Delicious sensing - Find nearby Delicious things, even if you can't see, hear or sense them.>Deliciousness battling - Attack other delicious creatures with your very self, directly.>Eight limbs - Two more! Requires six limbs.>Neck - Allows you to look in a direction other then forwards. Good for scouting.>Knowledge - Who are you? How do you do this? Why are you here? Who sent you? How did fly your ship to get here?You realise that you already had a measure of Deliciousness manipulation: You ability to sense if things are Delicious or not.>Short break while I grab something to eat.
>>26970727>Deliciousness battling - Attack other delicious creatures with your very self, directly.OR>Delicious force - Throw your Deliciousness and hit things with it!
>>26970727as much as I would love limbs right now, they can be gotten later, psionics are rare and essential ESPECIALLY if we want to control our young.I reckondelicious sense (from now on known as spider sense)and deliciousness battling, so we can keep our youngin's in line.
>Delicious force - Throw your Deliciousness and hit things with it!>Eight limbs - Two more! Requires six limbs.these two
>>26970727BATTLING, for all that is sacred and delicious battling! How many multibody and AI things could we have eaten with that!?And I suppose sensing, because ambushes are all about seeing them first.
>>26970727Definatly delicious force anyway, after that its a hard choice but I will go for eight limbs.
>>26970727>Delicious Sensing>KnowledgeGuys, with knowledge we can figure out how delicious works!
Rolled 64>>26970727Delicious sensing KnowledgeAre my choices.
>>26970727also, just on a side note toque, that sounded like it has sick potential for a fight, and the whole mind war thing was a very nice twist. I'd love to fight more psionics in the future.
Rolled 3>>26970809>>26970811Is my choice.
>>26970727Neck and either delicious sensing or deliciousness battling
>>26970727>Deliciousness force!>Deliciousness battling!We can ask our creator what 'deliciousness' is later, so we don't need knowledge.
>>26970727>Delicious Force>Eight LimbsHighly useful, I'd say.
>>26970727no sentience option?this guy is a psion after all.or is that what knowledge is?anywaysneck knowledge
>Delicious Force>Eight Limbsgoing with these
>>26970809>>26970811Have to second these, while most everything is useful, knowledge in particular is essential.
>>26970727Holy crap, that's...great I bet knowledge will tell us a bunch about Psionics too!>Knowledge>Delicious sensing
>>26970809>>26970795>>26970774It's like you dont even want telekinesis com on guys.
>>26970839This is me. After what other people have said, I'm changing Deliciousness Battling to Knowledge.
>>26970727Knowledge and...hmn...Eight limbs
>>26970845We can get necks from the human, are you really going to pass up psychic powers?
>>26970727>>Knowledge - Who are you? How do you do this? Why are you here? Who sent you? How did fly your ship to get here?Pick this, for the love of god!Psionics are nothing without the knowledge to USE IT.And it knows where MORE OF ITS KIND AREHoly shit pick this
Rolled 91>>26970872Its barbecue sensing is better and knowledge could help us learn how to get more psionic.>>26970727Hey Toque are these psionic abilities in a different category than the other abilities?
>>26970727>>Delicious sensing - Find nearby Delicious things, even if you can't see, hear or sense them.>Knowledge - Who are you? How do you do this? Why are you here? Who sent you? How did fly your ship to get here?Those two
>>26970727Delicious sensing and deliciousness battling
>>26970872Telekesis is nice, it's a toss up between that, sensing and knowlege as to a second choice.But battling lets us eat anything delicious. No more needing a 100 to be able to eat things made of rocks, so more cheating AI escaping from the truck when we try to eat it. And the thing our creator tried to feed us? We could have eaten that!Battling directly enhances our ability to eat.
>>26970727Delicious Sensing and Knowledge!Therefore we have half the battle....all we need are red lasers and blue lasers and we'll have the battle won!
>>26970727>Delicious forceEverything else is good but this is best.
>>26970872>>26970883>>26970862>>26970855Just going to put it out there that with delicious battling we can impose our will on people and our soon to be broodlings inside that woman...
>>26970727Knowledge and Delicious Force.Mmm, delicious force.
>>26970984Like hell it is.Delicious Sensing is the best....being able to hunt without line of sight or smell....We become the ultimate ambush predator. We know where they are without them knowing we're even there.Delicious Force is only good if we can draw line of sight.
>>26970980We're not here to battle, we're here to EAT. Delicious Battling helps us eat.
Rolled 12>>26971007True but with knowledge we can find more psionics and sensing is a great help for fighting, hunt, and hiding.
>>26970979Actually, you have a point.I want Psychic battling and Knowledge. Those are clearly the best
>>26970943We know how to use our mutations by instinct. No one thought us how to walk or fly but we can still do it.
Rolled 39>>26971045Think ahead, anon with sensing and knowledge we could get more psionics.
Rolled 95>>26971084Thats because of stolen knowledge anon.
>>26971094And have them 'ascend to a higher non-physical plane' when we can't eat them?! No thanks!
>Counting votes up to here.>Next post might take a little, but there's still a few hours left in the thread.
>>26971045Delicious Sense allows us to detect prey before we can even see them, thus allowing the setting up of better ambushes and superior hunting skills.Knowledge allows us to better understand our new-found Deliciousness powers, allowing us to quite possibly expand into Battling and Force.Essentially....we're taking Psychic Predator Vision and the knowledge of using Psionics over telekinesis (Force) and being able to battle someone's will/mind directly with our own...both of which require line of sight/knowledge of where they are.
>>26971062>>26971045Battling sucks, look how well it worked on us.We're not guaranteed to be good at it without skill, and as a Sapience-Vore, it's REALLY useful to be able to sense meals - particularly hard-to-find meals like those that hide in bodies or that abandon shells.>>26971084Knowledge includes theory and practice, though. We can do things, but we lack Finesse.There's a difference between being able to talk, and being able to lie because we can't do that.Same goes for muscle memories and skill. Just because we know how to use it doesn't mean we know how to use it the best.We should go eat an olympic athlete or lifetime martial artist, or hollywood stunt man.
Rolled 24>>26971118All we need is surprises one of them, and we can get battling later on.
>>26970774fuck it, you guys have swayed me, voting for>spider sense>knowledge
>>26971146Seconding this so hard.Sense and Knowledge
>>26971043We are already a pretty good ambush predator and unless we get delicious batteling as well we still need to have line of sight to kill dudes. And we do need more combat mutations. Hell we could even keep it if we shrink down.
Rolled 62>>26971147>>26971146These two make the most the sense>>26971128Hey Toque can you answer my question?>>26970944
>>26971147But we wont be able to eat them if we dont have batteling.
Rolled 25>>26971200We need the skills to use battling right like this anon said.>>26971147
>>26971200>But we wont be able to eat them if we dont have batteling.lololhow do you think we got the power tobegin with!Fuck battling! We have a mouth! and phasers!Do the math!
>>26971147You're misreading it I think.>Deliciousness battling - Attack other delicious creatures with your very self, directly.We get that, we can TRIGGER the 'I eat their souls' ability. Consciously.
>>26971224Then get batteling and knowledge.We need to get one combat mutation out of this.
>>26971172But we become an even better ambush predator.Being able to stalk prey without seeing or smelling them is a HUGE advantage.Being able to realize that there are more than one sentient creature in room A....but there's only one in Room C....whereas before we really wouldn't have that information before it's almost too late (and sometimes it was too late).It also seems that the Sense may have allowed the Psionic to actually derive our motives (the whole "I'm being hunted" bit), which if true, is an even bigger boon, it'll let us know if what we're stalking is either aware it's being stalked, is on guard, or is oblivious to us.Telekinesis is nowhere near as useful to us right now, and with the knowledge gained from psionics, we may be able to develop it at a later date.
There is nothing in battling that says it will allow us to eat things like that AI or that hivemind.
Rolled 86>>26971200A surprise attack and intense pain like what our poison did is more than enough to stop them from escaping in their minds.>>26971266Sensing is already combat orientated and plus while using battling whats to stop some one from attacking us.
>>26971277It says "Attack other delicious creatures with your very self, directly.".AIs are delicious creatures.
>>26971270>It also seems that the Sense may have allowed the Psionic to actually derive our motives (the whole "I'm being hunted" bit), which if true, is an even bigger boon, it'll let us know if what we're stalking is either aware it's being stalked, is on guard, or is oblivious to us.This is why Delicious Sense is important.Plus we want to be able to hear what our creator is REALLY thinking.
>>26971235What about the things that can leave their bodys? Like that thing in the truck or the thing our creator tried to feed us?
>>26970727>>Delicious sensing - Find nearby Delicious things, even if you can't see, hear or sense them.>>Deliciousness battling - Attack other delicious creatures with your very self, directly.
>>26971313Then sense is even MORE important, because we can find out where they are REALLY tele-operating from.
>>26971266No, we don't.And you're far too narrow in your definition of "combat".Being able to set up ambushes...that's part of combat. Anybody who says otherwise is a dumbass who doesn't know the first thing about combat.Combat is not just damage dealing. If you think that...leave now.Combat is also positioning, planning, knowledge of your enemy, tactics, and strategy if you're going long-term.
>>26970944>Yes. They will use a different resource. It doesn't recharge on feast, but instead over time. Probably per 'mission'.>>26970827>Thank that nat100 for that.>I should clarify that the 'two for one' on biomorphs was because of the 100. Regular 'delicious battles' don't do that.>That's a lot of votes. I keep getting different answers. One moment. Technical difficulties (brain melt).
>>26971313It might be a case of roll high or they escape, but right now they can flee at will, which sucks.
>>26971304She isnt delicious
>>26971354She is, actually. She's just a 'strange' type of deliciousness in a way we don't understand. Which could mean she's psionic herself, or she's completely fucked up mentally. Or she's partially an AI or something. Or all three.
>>26971298Worked real well on that thing our creator tried to feed us didnt it?
>>26971354She's "sort of" delicious. We sense her but she's "spoiled".>>26971380We've sensed part AI and full AI as delicious before. My bet is on insanity.
>>26971380All three seems about right.Well, she DID make us after all. SOMETHING has to be wrong with her.
Rolled 80>>26971344>doesn't recharge on feast, but instead over timeIs there a way to speed up the recharge and how long does sense last, since its the obvious first pick.
>>26971354We had this conversation already! She IS delicious! But not anymore. Tainted delicious.Because hahaha she makes bioweapons for a hobby, of course she has ware/tech/augments that make us not want to eat her.Being able to sense her thoughts/motives - especially when she's trying to goad us into doing her bidding with a carrot lets us get the upper hand on her.And we also know she made us unable to stop being hungry, just not how. Taking control of our hunger is the first step to throwing off her shackles, and reading her mind - especially when she doesn't know we can do it - is the first step to THAT.
Rolled 29>>26971429Plus we need to mate and she is the closest female we have.
>>26971429We CAN stop being hungry. We just did a moment ago. The problem is we keep eating morsels. The obvious conclusion is we need to find a 'world mind' scale AI and eat it.
>>26971342Yes but we still need to be able to dish out damage. What have we? Claws, fangs a stinger tail and poision. What if we run into another fire thing and we dont have an acid spitting gun on hand? What if we run into another psionic guy and we dont roll a 100? What if we get ambushed and dont have anywhere to hide?
This is what I got, some of the votes were a tad confusing so these numbers might not be exact:>Deliciousness battling3>Delicious force10>Delicious Sense10>Limbs5>knowledge13>neck1
>>26971507Oh yeah, the fire thing... We didn't get to eat that either!
>>26971480no, we only get temporarily satiated. Our creator flat up told us she made us hungry all the time on purpose.>>26971507You're thinking like you're stuck in last thread.We walk upright now.we have two hands useful in combat.There are any NUMBER of useful things we can do with that.Not the least of which is Phasers.Hands, claws, fangs, stinger, poison spit, grenades, phasers, thrown objects....yeah, we're not nearly in as dire straits as you think we are.
>>26971429What if she also put in something to stop things reading her mind?
>>26971547Do we decide again between Delicious force and delicious sense?
Rolled 58>>26971547we have more sense and battling then force.
>>26971507Except that with the Sense, we won't be ambushed unless something shuts it down, which is highly unlikely.We still have plenty of damage dealing potential.And if you actually play it smart, you won't run into the fire thing again without knowing beforehand...because SENSE!The Psionic will sense us....and then sense that we sense him....he loses a major advantage he had over us...and that would be attacking us without us knowing he's there. Then we just physically attack him instead of psychically.
>>26971547So, what? knowledge and tiebreaker vote?>>26971565There's only one way to find out! More info is always good.Also, since she's not psionic herself, that seems unlikely.Or, if she did, its probably the key behind why we find her untasty - and being able to see past it is also incredibly useful.
>>26971547I stack my vote on Delicious Sense/Limbs. You can never have too many arms.
>>26971547I'm so disappointed. It's like you all don't even like to eat.
>>26971592>The Psionic will sense us....and then sense that we sense him....he loses a major advantage he had over us...and that would be attacking us without us knowing he's there. Then we just physically attack him instead of psychically.Delicious Sense is Jedi Mode.There's no way we can't pick it.
>>26971547See by my count I got:>Battling 5>Force 7>Sensing 8>Knowledge 11>Limbs4
>>26971612Smart predator beats dumb predator, natch!Planning for the future beats filling our stomach now.
>>26971612Toque said we're not gonna be able to get 2 things from a body instead of 1 with that upgrade.I know, I was disappointed too
>>26971547Voting again for spider sense and knowledge ftw
>>26971592That sensing ambushes worked out real well for the last guy didnt it?>>26971553But like you were saying about the psionic powers if we dont know how to use those things (which we dont) They wont be very effective.
>>26971547I think you typoed/swapped votes for Battling and Force btw
Rolled 67>>26971660He tried to attack us, he could have easily avoided us or even set up a trap.
>>26971660Actually, it worked fairly well for him.We got excellent rolls.And the ONLY way we knew he was onto us was that we had the communicator.If we didn't, we'd have been caught flat-footed.But hey, it's ok if you cannot into tactical or strategic thinking. That's why the rest of us are here, to not get us killed.
>>26971658Hey hey now no multiple votes.
>>26970727Force and Battle.
>>26971709my bad, I thought we were revoting?
>>26971147Changing my vote to this persons.>>26971723
Rolled 75I still don't see why people won't pick knowledge and sensing, those two are important for us.
>>26971709"Vote early, vote often!"But yeah, kinda skeevy. In any case, we HAVE to get the Delicious Sense at least, it's too good not to.

Rolled 67>>26971905Paper making since we still have 1 poison left.
I think we should pick poison honestly. We get more use outta it then papermaking.
Rolled 82New thread?
>>26971992nah, we are only on page 2.
>>26971962Now I'm imagining an old style submarine sonar display, but with ham hocks and drumsticks instead of dots.
Rolled 58>>26972011True, but we usually get toque to post every 5-15 minutes and i don't feel like searching for a new thread.
>>26972052at the pace the board is moving I doubt thats something you are going to have to worry about much.
>>26971887>No. You can get that next time you eat a psion. Get hunting.>Papermaking recharged [1/1]You scurry off down the corridor, towards the deliciousness. You find them in a huge room, large then any you've seen before. Most of the room is filled by a huge sea of liquid, glowing green and bubbling. Around the edge there is a thin floor, covered in tiles. The Delicious human is crouched halfway down the long side of the rectangular lake, with its backpack set aside. It is working with an electronic device, which it waves over the bubbling liquid.At the far end the horatian, still wearing its armor and helmet, has scaled a concrete monument that hangs out over the caustic lake."I'm telling you, there's something in there," the human shouts."Well if it comes out, I'll blast it," the other replies, voice distorted.They don't seem to have noticed you.You still hold the motion detector, and the communicator.You are hungry.
>>26972142We should focus on psionic powers. It is the will of the Many.
Rolled 23>>26972142Make some noise from where you left the Armour and set a trap using paper making.
>>26972032The sweeps, the bleeps, and the chicken nuggets!
>>26972142oh god, the horatian would be so easy to kill right now. Just knock it over and watch it die.>>26972205we have knowledge lets use the communicator in the voice of the one we just killed and send them at the location of the armor.
Rolled 96>>26972142We don't need the comm or the motion detector anymore, do we?Anyway, let's bite this human on the neck vampire style
>>26972142If only we had some way to rip the gun out of the big guys hands from far away.
>>26972142What is a horatian again?If it's shit then I propose we toss the radio at it's head and watch as it falls off the monument into the acid. Then we laugh.If not we toss something in the opposite direction to us and when they turn we get the human while the other guy isn't looking.
Rolled 92>>26972231We have to eat and throwing him in acid isn't good, and i second using the voice to get him close to the armour and making use of paper making for a trap.
>>26972269actually, use sonic screech and that will hopefully disorient it into falling off.
>>26972260And get shot by the elephant?
>>26972264Let's see if we can throw something at it so it gets startled and drops it?
>>26972280>Sonic screechSecond. But first, let's use the communicator to say "Listen close, deliciouses."
>>26972142>Chuck grenade at Horatian>>26972260And then seconding this.>>26972219Luckily, jam is Delicious. So we won't have any trouble with that.
Rolled 7>>26972269 we have a piece of armour set up as a trap might as well use it.
>>26972231Remember, we can't lie yet.

>>26972301I don't want to lose any precious genetics until we literally gain nothing from them. Humans included. They still have evolutionary systems we can use.
>>26972355I don't want to loose the meal, just saying we can try to get rid of the gun.Never waste food!
>>26972337perhaps we speak over the comms and taunt their asses. This will encourage him to get down and then we let loose a SONIC SCREECH!
>>26972333We just have to tell a half truth then. "He was attacked and his last known location is 'so and so'"
Rolled 39>>26972405Which is why i'm for using the armour trap and luring the big guy to it.
>>26972142We really need to lure them out though, this is a crappy place to ambush them.It's open. It's dangerous to us. It's dangerous to them getting made undelicious before we can eat them.Finally, there might actually BE something in the pool of acid. And it's not delicious so I want no part of it.
>>26972465We could just set off the grenade or screach near the door and pounce on them when they come to investigate.
>>26972269>Thick skinned, trunked creatures with wickedly curved claws, short tusks and a thick skull.You hold the communicator up to your face."Help help! I was eaten!" You say, unable to reproduce the voices of any of the guests."Aww shit, it's got Ellen. Get down, we've wasted too much time."You screach into the device, which whines and then bursts in a shower of blue sparks and so do similar devices on both the other invaders suits.You quickly run back toward the hangar, where you had left the grenade.When you return, the human has reached your grisly spectacle. It appears to have ejected internal fluids."Sick." The distorted voice says.Just then, there is a huge roar that echoes through the entire structure. A collosal tentacle reaches out into the corridor, spraying acid all around as it grabs the larger figure, crushing its red armor and drawing it back into the pool room.The yellow armored human begins firing its gun into the room.You hold the grenade, and the motion detector. There is a lot of motion in the pool room. This motion is undelicious.You are hungry.
>>26972525Easy prey. Leap onto the human's back and bite his head off.
ok, well we are sort of divided and we need to come to a consensus. I reckon we lure them by throwing something to get their attention and when they go searching we disorient them with our scream and then go nuts.
>>26972525Joy, giant squid.I say we ambush the human from behind.
Rolled 19>>26972525FUCKtake the human, the other guy is good as dead.
Rolled 79>>26972525Throw the grenade at the center of the undelicious motion. Then leap onto the humn's back and bite at the back of his neck.
Rolled 24>>26972525Sneak up behind the human and try to break his neck with our jaws.
>>26972525Holy....did...did we just get helped out by one of Doc's big fucking octopus monsters?Oh also pounce on human.
>>26972525Fly past the human as fast as possible and grab it's head with our claw, snapping the neck and flee with the morsel as fast as possible.Throw grenade into pool, hope acid is flammable.
>>26972525Oh man, oh man. What is that thing and why do I want us to ride it into battle?
>>26972525snap the human's neck with our mandibles and drink deep of his deliciousness before that big fucker tries to steal out food. Be sure to bring the grenade with us in case the kraken thing comes back for seconds.
>>26972618Whatever it is, it's not delicious and it stole deliciousness from us. I hate it.
Rolled 75>>26972525Attack human and throw grenade at pool hoping to stop it from stealing your meal
Rolled 47>>26972525grab the human and drag it out of range of the tentacles then FEED>ametes inclosed
>>26972628We don't want to use the grenade on anything delicious anyway, just give it to the asshole thief squid.
>>26972658let's not antagonise it dude, it can easily fuck our shit up no problems. Only use the grenade if necessary.
>>26972678Fuck it up, it won't fit down the hallway. (probably)
You leap onto the human, bowling it over from the side. You slash at its neck, but it's thick mangey fur makes you misjudge the attack. It kicks at you, and the points its shotgun at your chest.You slam forwards with your arms, knocking it against the wall. There is a crack and a pop as the human's head slams agains the wall, and red fluid begins leaking out as it collapses.Inside the room the horatian is fighting a writhing mass of tentacles. It is held high above the lake of acid, firing it's heavy phaser downwards repeatedly. With every blast charred flesh and glowing acid are flung around the room, searing the walls. The Delicious fatsack's armor is corroding as you watch, it won't last much longer.You heft the grenade in one arm, and prepare to throw...>Roll 1d100 for grenade!
Rolled 41>>26972678it stole our shit and its not delicious thats more than enough reason to hate it and kill it.
Rolled 75>>26972713Here is hoping for anything above 50
Rolled 32>>26972713Masher out!
Rolled 48>>26972713Toss, exit stage left, eat.
Rolled 54>>26972713Stop the thief.
Rolled 67>>26972713open wide muthafucker.
You don't know how to make it flash, but that's not the important bit anyway. You toss the heavy thing, and it arcs over the pool. A smaller tentacle darts up and grabs it and grabs it. It sinks back into the churning mass of acid.A few moments pass as the horatian struggles, blowing off a large tentacle.Then there is a boom, and the very sea seems to rise up. It is as if a huge bubble has burst, but inside was not air, but fire.An expanding wall of acid and severed tentacles sweeps towards you, filling the room and the coridoor.You realise how small you are.You are hungry.>[End of thread!]>Next thread will be either Friday, or on the weekend.>Updates can be found at my twitter: @solartopee>Please vote in the archive if you enjoyed the thread.>Thanks for playing!>I'll be around for a bit to answer questions.
Step 1 throwStep 2 RUNWe forgot step 2!
>>26972985How common are psionics? Is the human still Delicious? Did you expect things to go batshit like they did over the ten pound chocolate bar of a psychic you gave us?
Rolled 77>>26972985Well shit we forgot to run.
>>26972985epic session man, reading them in the archives is just not the same as being here.do you think in future you may be putting us up against a combination of delicious and non-delicious foes to force use to take different approaches to combat? (ie encourage the use of weapons and not having to worry so much about completely destroying them)
>>26972985Heh, well I just saw where we might get spacewhale size catagory from.Too bad we don't have Large yet.Also what did you mean by 'lost the plot'? Seemed to me the plot was to hunt down these intruders, no?
>>26972985Will we ever, literally, take everything there is to take from a species?Namely humans, I suppose.Besides Knowledge, I guess.
>>26972985Also Toque, I like the random updates about Doc's lab. They made me chuckle
Rolled 79>>26972985So what are the chances that our food will survive, since we know we will survive thanks to Eliza and stuff being around.
>>26972985If only we had some way to throw the tentacles back with our minds.
>ArchivesChrist, has anyone else noticed the number of downvotes on quests all around has increased a ton?I've seen quests go down a color grade because of all the down voting.
Rolled 51>>26973213Stop bitching about past decisions, we already decided by majority vote and even then i doubt we could protect ourselves completely. >>26973242Yeah when i went to vote right now, this one already had 1 down votes.
>>26973082>Rare. Varies greatly by species.>The race of floating psionic brains is a thing, of course.>>26973099>Anything is possible. I tried robot allies for a while, but this seemed like a good spot for something big, fleshy, and antagonistic.>Which, for the bioweapon, means stealing it's food, haha.>>26973103>It's more personal. Sometimes I find myself sitting here reading the replies, and then I realise that my allocated 'writing time' has passed and I haven't any words down, so I have to rush out the next post with little planning.>>26973137>It is possible. I can create many many new aliens yet, but there might be a limit to the number I can keep track of, in the game. My hope is to introduce more different things when you are smaller, but when you are larger you can take on more of them.>>26973164Good to hear, I'll keep doing them then.>>26973177>You are not the doctor's first bioweapon. You probably won't be the last.>>26973242There's a consistent two downvotes for every quest thread, and one for every other thread. I don't believe I'm being targeted in any way.
>>26973274Check the early ones. Bioweapon Quest 1 had 15 downvotes. If it hadn't been for whoever these fuckers are, it'd easily be gold color.Seriously, what is this bullshit? Is someone fixing this?
Rolled 30>>26973285>You probably won't be the lastTrue but we are her first successful one and i meant to say that she could still save you and it is in her best interest for you to live.
>>26973285Groovy. Anyway, thanks for the thread, Toque. An entertaining series as always.>>26973380We're her most successful one, I'd think. We finally ate her rival.
>>26973285Oh. Well I end up reading a lot of the replies too. I appreciate the speed, but no need to rush yourself.
>>26973274Bah. You numptys are all Oh we will sense threats coming an be real sneaky like and what happens? You get into an unexpected fight with a giant acid squid.I knew something exactly like this would happen.
>>26973380Ha, I have a feeling, if Doc is going to keep making bioweapons, we'll either end up having to kill them, or kill her. Which is a shame, because she's sorta our only NPC we can talk to.
Rolled 88>>26973405Which proves my point about the likely hood of her helping us live, which is why i asked the chances of our food surviving and this is assuming that our scales do shit and we received the worst damage possible.
>>26973444Who needs talking when we can eat stuff?
>>26973444>You can talk to any NPC. Just not after you have eaten them.
Rolled 52>>26973444It depends if the weapons are delicious if so, then we should be content and just think of it as training.
>>26973444HOLY SHIT-why don't we become a mercenary? We have knowledge or mercenaries, so if she goes awry with our creator we can always just kill her and become a merc...
Rolled 65>>26973490Will you take into account our armour(scales,skull,other) for the acid?
>>26973490Fine, but I mean have a conversation that didn't involve the various different ways we could kill/maim/fuck/poison/rend them.I assume we'll gain some sort of disguise ability at some point. That'd be handy, so we could go full Prototype.
Most important development:We can fly a spaceship. So, we find some poor, defenseless colony world and eat a few villages. Preferably somewhere filled with nature loving peaceniks of several species. Maybe a safe, touristy nature preserve?
>>26973490Be honest Toque: What did you actually expect us to take from that Psion? Would you have been sad if we just took the limbs and neck
Rolled 82>>26973553For disguise to work we probably would have to repressed our battle oriented mutations.
>>26973566Honestly Rav, I wouldn't mind a defenseless colony of humans. It would help fill out our social tree, plus I always wanted to know what it'd be like to have 10000 brains at once.
>>26973536Because we have no need for money and our life goal is to eat things and get stronger?
>>26973570>I was expecting limbs and neck to be trollpicked.>But for serious, TK and Hungryvision.>I was pleasantly surprised when you wanted Knowledge.
>>26973576Only some of them, most can be covered by clothes.
>>26973593Pleasantly surprised as in "Oh man now my super doom boss can fuck them up!" or pleasantly surprised as in "Awesome, that means you'll be able to...**** later"
>>26973590Money's great for buying delicious slaves. I'm sure somewhere sells slaves. Rare species even.
Rolled 65>>26973583true this could be great but i doubt we will be getting a freebie upgrade mission anytime soon, unless toque adds a boss that only shows up if you eat everyone.
>>26973603Heh, oh man, that'll be hilarious if we actually gain enough brain power to lead an organization disguised as some new manner of alien.
>>26973593>>I was pleasantly surprised when you wanted Knowledge.We're seriously underplaying our potential to be a universally amazing jack of all trades and steal-your-shape infiltrator.which... make sense considering our intelligence, inability to lie, and general inexperience with the outside world.
>>26973593How much could we have even lifted with TK?
>>26973637I think it'd end up 'free' until law enforcement arrived on planet to hunt the thing that ATE A WHOLE COLONY.We should still do it.
>>26973624I think he means pleasantly surprised as in "Oh good they actually want to know more about the setting, they're not just mindlessly trying to pick up bodyparts."
>>26973576I'd like to see a mutation(cocoon? Chyrsalis?) that lets us respec/change out bioweapons as we sleep. Like, over time, but without needing to kill someone.
>>26973670Hey. You know what's even better then a colony of defenseless civilians?A bunch of cops with small arms that can barely hurt us.Yup
>>26973678Well, honestly I want new knowledge upgrades almost all the time, but we only get to pick one, and well, Toque keeps throwing interesting aliens at us. If we fought more of the ones we already saw, maybe then we could pick up more Knowledge upgrades.Hell once we get the ability to lie, and Self awareness from humans, I will probably default to knowledge upgrades from them
>>26973590but money can be exchanged for goods and services, such as exotic slaves. And realistically we will be killing on the job so that's also something to consider. What is more enjoyable than flying around the universe eating tasty morsels, getting paid for it then using that cash to buy more tasty morsels.
>>26973688And then after we eat them, the military!It's like a tasty delicious version of GTA!Until they nuke us from orbit... Maybe not the best plan.
>>26973685Speaking of 'over time'... We still don't have a time sense.
Rolled 94>>26973688If we ate a small colony(5-12 people) then they might send the military considering we should be somewhat famous thanks to that anchor man.
>>26973717did you forget? We can polite a spaceship now.Nuking from orbit is no longer a way to be sure.
>>26973714Why, SHOWING THEM ALL! of course.
Guys remember that, excepting a few social skills (like lying, proper nouns, and general empathy), Toque has explicitly stated that the Bioweapon is about as smart as we choose to play him. There aren't really any 'smarts' upgrades.
>>26973730Then we flee of course. We're pretty fast, after all.
>>26973688Dude guns wreck our shit because we keep picking sneaky options. Our only real defensive mutation is scales. We didnt even have a skull for ages.
>>26973742Oh god, we're doomed.
Rolled 90>>26973714SHOWING THEM ALL!!
>>26973734>we can polite a spaceship"Excuse me Miss Vessel, would you please do me the honor of ferrying my personage across the infinite blackness of the void between stars whilst keeping me in relative comfort and safety?"
>>26973742Oh I know anon. I like the knowledge upgrades becauseA. General skills and talentsB. Interesting tid bits about the setting and our victims. Actually felt bad for Psion girl(?)C. I think the more brains we consume, the more in touch with Psionic energy we can be.
>>26973730That smaller things with green feathers ate the anchorman. Remember?
>>26973758Yeah...we should pick that up from humans too, come to think of it. A REAL skeleton.Also want tough skin from elephant race
>>26973772>PoliteDamn, that's some hardcore typoBut hey, that works too
>>26973770think of the sick armour and weapon we could buy with all the moneys though...biomorphs plus technology?....
>>26973801I think tough skin is mutually exclusive to better protective dermis upgrades, like scales.
Rolled 62>>26973754True we do know how to drive several vehicles, but this is the space military we are talking about.>>26973790I forgot we were small at that time, but our master should still be famous and we did take out a whole building of people that had cameras so they should still have an up to date image of you.
>>26973801Or osteoderms from someone else, these are great because they're subdermal. You could have them and tough skin, and tough scales.
>>26973820>>26973772More like: "AY YO BABY, U WANT SUM FUK?" *repeatedly gestures with middle digit*
>>26973719>Speaking of 'over time'... We still don't have a time sense.We should fix that.In fact, we just need to get a 'tier 2' brain with all those fancy little things sapients have, like an internal clock, self-determination, observation to detail, a better understanding of linguistics, etc....
>>26973782It says that literally no where, only way we are going to get more psionic I reckon is if we eat more psiconic dudes
>>26973852I wouldn't mind a tier 2 brain.Toque, I hope you're not gonna make up kill a guy just so we know what time it is, or that that funky thing in the mirror is actually us.
>>26973830They may be in game, not sure, but mechanically tough skin and scales are combinable in reality because they're different layers in the dermis.
>>26973869maybe not increase our psionic powers, but perhaps our recharge time on psionics?
Rolled 54>>26973852True, but having a sense of time can be bad as well.
>>26973920Because boredom?I'm sure we can handle ourselves.
>>26973852>>26973920If we get a sense of time, we can improve our tim/ing/, too. Amusing as it is to repeatedly kill our mirror-selves, we ought to get smart enough to figure that out, too.
Rolled 59>>26973946we are simple minded and let our urges take us over, i don't think we can handle boredom yet.
>>26973911We dont have any to recharge. Hungry vision has unlimited uses. At the moment anyway.
>>26973920We're using grenades. We need a sense of time.
>>26973660>You could impart force about equal to your bodymass flung at something by leaping. Hefty, but not OP.>>26973656>I feel I have to keep repeating this: The Bioweapon is exactly as smart as you play it. You will never gain raw intelligence through biomorphs, just new understanding and ability, such as reading, speaking, or plotting throwing arcs.>>26973633>>26973714>While I don't really want to stop you from taking a path like this, I think it would be better if we kept the more visceral feel, instead of chasing spacedollahs.>>26973624>More like "Huh. I didn't expect that. Now I get to write out some backstory and give you more insight into the universe.">>26973670>>26973688>>26973717>I would advice against taking on an entire planet's military at this stage of your evolution.>>26973685>Metamorphosis was an option that didn't get picked a while ago. I shall bring it back. It's a bioweapon that lets you shift without eating.>>26973790>You are still green.>I miss the feathers.>>26973782>Psion guy.>>26973900>hehehe>It would have been amusing, if you had chosen the social route.>>"It's my birthday on Saturday.">>"Uh..." *Scurries off and devours a hobo* GIFTS ARE REQUIRED FOR BIRTHDAYS>>26973911>Those memories _were_ awfully delicious.>>26973975>You can disregard boredom. Your second upgrade was the ability to override your bodies forcing drives.
>>26973975That's why the upgrade would help, unless you're suggesting that we need ANOTHER upgrade that is "Stop being stupid, you simple minded dork"
Rolled 35>>26974004we don't even know how to use them all we did was chuck it.
>>26974022Oh I know Toque, I didn't mean we'd get 'smarter' that way, I just 'smarter' as in we'd know how to do more stuff. Like talk about stuff without gibbering, etc.
>>26974022>BackstoryYay, I'm glad to hear. I love me some backstory. If we encounter more 'simple bodies', I'd be willing to take more knowledge upgrades. As it is though, we are running into new junk a lot, so it'll have to wait.
>>26974022I, too, miss our feathers. We were small and fluffy and adorable, once.>>26974046Exactly. With no time sense, we could as easily have just herped and derped staring at a live grenade until it exploded in our face.
You know what we need to do now? Go hunting spacewhales.
>>26974022>WHAT IS A BIRTHDAYOh god, stop making us the most adorable killing machine ever! God damn.
Rolled 11>>26974118We should pick knowledge whenever the other choices are useless.
>>26974179That's the problem anon, they almost never are useless. Not recently, anyway.And, as much as I like backstory to this world and characters, I can't help but vote for the upgrade that means I'm less likely to die, or more likely to kill something good....or to get Psionic powers. That's also a huge goal.
>>26974236We could hit the psionic planet from that dudes mind.
>>26974283I doubt it's a Psionic planet.Like Toque said, it's just something that happens to people sometimes.Now, what WOULD be good is to hit a Psionic academy. You know. AFTER we're strong enough to destroy a planet.
>>26974323>Now, what WOULD be good is to hit a Psionic academy. You know. AFTER we're strong enough to destroy a planet.We need a name for ourselves.I vote Regis.Mark Twelve.Mark is our middle name.
>>26974323That was what I was on about.
>>26974118This is part of the reason I wanted to go down the "eat minds" route. If you need to go toe to toe to win, size and expressed combat biomorphs are important.If you can latch onto their spine and suck the delicious right out of them, small and stealthy (and cute) works great.On the other hand, if we get large enough we'll be able to swallow humanoids whole. (being ever careful of grenades...)
>>26974236I dont think it's a psionic planet. From the sounds of it him being psionic was bad and he got put into something resembling the blackships from 40k. Toque also said they are exceedingly rare.
>>26974354Why do we need a name?
>>26974354We're Delicious.>>26974398I expect we could actually eat a grenade without harm; anything we swallow kinda just... Disappears, mass and all.
>>26974402For on the wanted posters. Either we choose one or someone else will, you know.
>>26974402Because NO ONE CAN STOP REGISREGIS IS INVINCIBLE
>>26974398I'm hesitant to get any bigger before we devour some sweet sweet minds and bodies still...but you never know. If we find something large that's sentient, then it might be worth eating right there.
Rolled 11>>26974426I'm guessing we will need an upgrade for that.
>>26974437HAHAH YES THAT SHOW! FUCKING LOVE IT!>>26974402Your arguement is no match for the superior tactical abilities of the regis mark five! which is invincible!
>>26974438We want more defense if we we go bigger
>>26974500Exactly. We'd just be a bigger target, slower, and make it harder to hide.
>>26974515>>26974500what we really want is this>>26974022>>Metamorphosis was an option that didn't get picked a while ago. I shall bring it back. It's a bioweapon that lets you shift without eating.Shifting forms is way better for hiding than being big, small, or able to wear clothes.Plus, it lets us suit our armament to the situation.
>>26974548I'm still upset we lost that upgrade because...of something.Hope we can get it back.
