You desire to eat things. With every delicious thing you eat you grow, morph and change.You are currently injured. You sit outside your creator's nest for a moment, looking at the small device you recovered from your last meal, when the door behind you as it flies open. You are shoved out of the way as your creator emerges, seemingly possessing a strength beyond what her thin human body should have."It's horrible!" she says as her hands pull at her hair, "They're misusing my inventions!"Inside the room you can see the television displaying some strange creature with large slitted eyes and a dark suit. It holds some papers as it talks."-set to come active late tomorrow. If it works, and we have been assured that it will, the orbital facility will provide power to the entire planet remotely. This unheard of new technology will revolutionise colonisation programs across the galaxy.""We have to stop them," your creator says as she paces back and forth, "You have to stop them! It just isn't right.">What do you do?

>>27250486"You were mean to me earlier." Then huff, and get up. "Okay."
>>27250486>>27250591This, and tell her "We're hurt. Need to recover."
"Tasty things to eat?""Oh! Good idea! You can go and eat all the damned scientists who are ruining my work.""You were mean to me earlier.""You were in my room!"You huff, scratching your mandibles together."I'll get you another delicious thing to eat?""Okay.""We just need to think of a way to get you onto the station..." Your creator scratches her head with her vestigal claws."We're hurt. Need to recover."Your creator stops pacing and pokes at your broken wing, causing pain to lance down your limb. You recoil from her prodding. "You are all damaged, aren't you. You should heal whenever you eat someone, how come you're still injured? Is that last one still running around in here?"
>>27250747"I changed my abilities instead of healing. Duh."
>>27250747"I...change....evolve. Not heal. Must choose." Also we really need the ability to tell time. I want to know how long it takes our heart to heal us
>>27250747"Heal one thing sometimes. Sometimes get more venom instead. Sometimes glands. Sometimes change body. Healed some already, but not enough."
>>27250747In addition to whatever else: "Question. Created other bioweapons before me? How am I different? How did I show them all when the others could not?"
>>27250847Well, how long does it normally take your heart to heal you?
>>27251023>It's a bit faster then that. Order of days to heal broken bones, but it's main use is healing minor cuts and abrasions to stop bleeding and enable biomorphs like your scales to protect you again."Changed abilities instead of healing. Duh.""Oh, it's one or the other?""Change....evolve. Not heal. Must choose." "And you get to choose?""Heal one thing sometimes. Sometimes get more venom instead. Sometimes glands. Sometimes change body. Healed some already, but not enough.""How interesting! I must write thi- No! There's no time!"Your creator pulls out a small device and begins to read from it."Oh! You healed some other way, you ate some metal, right?"You nod."That's it! There should be a... Yes! Follow me, I know just how to SHOW THEM ALL!!! this time.">cont.
>>27251198You trot along beside your creator as she leads you through the maze of her ship."Were other bioweapons created? How are they different? How did I show them all when the others could not?""Well... uh... you see..." Your creator wrings her hands together, "Well you're still alive, for one. And you've actually, you know, eaten someone I wanted you to eat instead of just sitting in the gutters snacking on passing hobos." Her cheeks redden, "You actually worked!"You eventually come to a room that reminds you of the bridge of the starships you have been on previously, although of a radically different design. One whole wall looks out into the speckled darkness of space. You see many floating asteroid chunks littered about, and a distant sun."And this is where we part ways! Good luck!" Your creator approaches a control pannel and slams her fist on a button marked "Guest Coffee Dispensor".There is a ceramic sliding noise beneath you. You look down and see a miniature trapdoor has opened between your feet.Your creator purses your lips together. "I had it installed before you got big, shutup!"
>>27251208>I probably should have prompted this:>Any final questions/requests from Eliza before we start the next mission?
>>27251208"If you get me more to eat, get psionic. Psionic is the MOST DELICIOUS THING! Made me feel not-hungry.I think whatever psionic is, that is what the delicious really is. Chewing the flesh just makes it easy to get to. Vulnerable."
>>27251260"I have feelings too you know,theyre mostly hunger but you know what i mean."
>>27251208"Where's the rival I saw in the transportation to your nest? I desire to kill it."
>>27251260Let's ask her what to expect damn it! What sort of dangers are on this mission? I want to know what we're getting into so we can change accordingly
>>27251208"... You made me to change. Of course I'll get bigger."
>>27251208What is our objective? How should we obtain it in the most efficient pattern? Anything we should acquire during our attack?
>>27251269Don't let her know we have psi powers.Veto'd.DO scan our creator with delicious sense, though! thats why we got it! To get INSIGHT into what she's REALLY thinking about us!
>>27251269>>27251554I agree with this anon. don't let her know about our psionics.
"... You made me to change. Of course I'll get bigger.""And it's a good thing! I'll drill out a bigger trapdoor the moment you're gone!""If you get me more to eat, get psionic meat.""That could be difficult, psions are rare, but I'll see what I can do.""Psionic is the MOST DELICIOUS THING! Made me feel not-hungry.""They did what now? Oh dear. Perhaps I shouldn't then. We can't have you broken like that.""We have feelings too, you know. They're mostly hunger."Your creator pokes your antennae, causing them to flinch away. "I'll get you someone extra delicious, I promise.""What delicious fleshbags will there be to eat?""There'll be some engineers and some scientists and probably one or two idiots there to make sure nothing goes wrong. It's a huge station, but it was designed to me mostly automated. I can't run everything myself, you know!""What do I have to do to get the one you offer?""Break the transspace thermal conduit convertor. That's the only important thing in the whole installation. It's a small box about as big as me, it's covered in coils of wires. You'll know it, it'll be right at the heart of the thing, behind steel plates and well watched.">cont.
Your creator begins pacing again, ranting away into the emptiness of space. "I knew I never should have left it in orbit around that star unguarded. It was meant to capture stellar radiation and beam it through transspace to warm up my burritos wherever I am in the galaxy, not power green energy colonies! It's disgusting!""What is going to try to kill me?""Oh, well, probably everything. What kind of a question is that?""How do I get there?""I'm going to stick you in a junk satellite I have lying around, then we shoot you off into a cross path orbit, the scrap collector picks you up and brings you on board. It's brilliant!Just before you jump down the hole, a question springs to mind. There is some business left unfinished here. "Where's the rival I saw in the transportation to your nest? I desire to kill it.""Rival? Oh, you mean the mir'rah? I'm sure you'll see another one soon enough."Mir'rah? Your rival is one of many? This is worrying."Enough questions, just go already!"
>>27251554>"Psionic is the MOST DELICIOUS THING! Made me feel not-hungry.">"They did what now? Oh dear. Perhaps I shouldn't then. We can't have you broken like that.">>27251574Fuck you, toque!Way to ruin our plans from several threads about breaking the shackles of our creator, and ignoring the contributions of anons with brains.
>>27251574>>27251554Did you two even read that post? There are no admissions or even implications of having psychic powers in it.
>>27251605Calm down you reactionary cockfag. Not everyone is on board with your plan in the first place, and even if they were, nothing is ruined.
>>27251612>no admissions>>27251577>"Psionic is the MOST DELICIOUS THING! Made me feel not-hungry."Uh huh, anon. Riiiiight.Now we get an anti-psion control virus to gimp our growth in ways our creator doesn't want.Fuck that, fuck you
>>27251577Figures she'd be useless regarding information...Oh well, we have Psion sense now I suppose.Jump down the hole.
>>27251605>>27251639>I have to keep to a reasonable posting schedule. You replied awfully late.
>>27251639It said that psions taste delicious, not that we have psychic powers.
>>27251639I'll be honest with you anon, it probably doesn't even matter what we say to her. Our creator is plum nuts. She'll probably forget we even said that, and go about creating a cure for world hunger just because she wanted to play 'giant watermelon bowling'
>>27251662>It said that psions taste delicious, not that we have psychic powers.>>27251198>"Changed abilities instead of healing. Duh.">"Oh, it's one or the other?">"Change....evolve. Not heal.

Or maybe you could just not throw a fit whenever you don't get your way.Oh no, actually thinking about the situation and not just the last post!Grow up, get some balls and a memory bigger than that of a goldfish, anon.
You jump down the whole, tucking your legs and wings in and ignoring the occasional spurts of pain as you jostle against the walls.You land in the dark, in a small tube that gives you a small amount of room to maneuver. You hear a panel close above you, sealing you in. You wait for some time.After a time, you feel a wrenching from your inside. Your form flickers and changes, your eyes see colours that you're sure don't exist. After a moment normality returns, and you resist the urge to vent bile.Your stolen knowledge identifies this as a warp jump, how most starships shortcut their way between places in the galaxy.Some time later you are slammed into the back of the tube, then you feel light and begin floating. Later again, you are slammed into the front of your capsule, and feel the weight of gravity again.Your scales and feet have begun healing, sewing themselves back together. Your bruised ribs feel better.>Current Injuries:>scarred and scratched scales (back, legs, neck)>Crushed wing>Lightly bruised ribsThe hatch above you hisses, and slides open. You crawl out quietly and have a look around.You are in a large cavern with a low roof. All around you are wreckages of sattellites, spaceships and there are occasional hunks of rock. You can hear a voice, echoing from somewhere out of sight, behind the stacks of twisted metal.You are hungry.
>>27251879Hm, let's sneak across the pile then, and find out who's there.
You creep away from the tube, which looks like much of the other debris around, and climb slowly up the nearest metal heap. This area is only dimly lit, and strange shadows are cast from twisted solar panels, bent antennae and dented shielding.You identify the voice as delicious. It seems to be humming to itself."Two gallons of juice and we'll be done; two gallons of juice for me.">Roll 1d100 for silent stalking!
Rolled 57>>27252012Sneaky-sneaky wall-crawling.
Rolled 41death pounce>>27252012
Rolled 74>>27252012We be spidey man
You get higher and higher, but when you near the top, you bump your injured wing on a protruding strut, and it twitches involuntarily. You dislodge a small metal plate and it falls toward a large shielding panel.You lash out with a hindclaw, and catch the plate with your digets, gripping so hard your claws score the soft metal. That was close.You continue upwards, more wary, and find a small gap in the scrap to peer through.You see a delicious oblong of flesh, worming its way through the maze of space debris. It glistens in the half light, as does the path it has walked through. It is carrying a plastic jug in one arm, and the other has a rope looped around its shoulder. Its eyes are on long stalks that protrude from its raised shoulders. It has no mouth you can see.The meatbag stops and rummages through a small spherical satellite, sticking its eyes inside as it searches.It throws the thing aside with a sigh, and continues along its path. All of a sudden an arc of light lances out in front of the creature, melting the plastic and spraying liquid into the air."Intruder alert!" A delicious metalic voice cries."It's just me, Carl." The fleshsack responds unsurprised."Identify!""We've know each other for two years, Carl.""Identify or be destroyed!">What do you do?
Rolled 79>>27252257The time has come Toque, to devour our roots.DEVOUR SLUG FROM SLUG QUEST. HE SHALL BE ASSIMILATED

Rolled 69>>27252257>>27252410I second this. Remain in stealth-mode until the danger clears, /then/ eat the delicious slug.
>>27252508toque is writing, leave him to it
>>27252304>there was a slug quest?The fleshsack you can see, reaches down and picks up a hunk of metal."Look, an intruder!" the slimy one shouts as it throws the thing high into the air.There is another lance of light that vaporises the thrown thing. Then you realise that the thrower has rushed through the narrow gap and is now behind another pile of twisted metal."I'll loop around and charge you up, alright?""I wait. I age. Forever watching.""You and me both, Carl."You could try to loop around to the right and find another path to the slug. Or perhaps you could go to the left, and find a path to the hollow sounding delicious one. Or you could scrabble over the metal heap to where the mollusc was, but the metal one might be able to see you if you do that. You clench the metal disc in your hindclaw, bending it slightly. You realise that there is plenty of material in this cavern that you could eat.You are hungry.
>>27252550>Late input can often be included in future posts. It's just that vetos and seconds have to be timely.>I aim for 10-15 minute post intervals.
>>27252555Go left, carl can wait. if we eat a few loose pieces of metal silently, i have no objections
>>27252555Find Carl. He apparently is out of charge.
Lets go find carl. It'll be our first robot.
>>27252555((Yeah, Slug Quest. It was basically a mini version of this quest, except our base form was a slug, not a mouse.It was...kinda boring, honestly. The majority of it was spent in the sewer, trying to take over rats, and failing a lot of the time.))>>27252555Also, fo left. We need to take out the lancer, so to speak.
>>27252726>mousesnake thing. my bad.
You slink off between the scrap piles, weaving around like a hidden predator. Along the way you pick up a few small scraps of tasty metal, being careful to not upset any of the towering piles. You snack on them, mulching them with your mandibles as the corrosive saliva in your maw softens the metal.>You've had a small meal, so choose one of:>Minor recharge (+1 use to bioweapon)>Minor heal (remove scarred scales, remove bruised ribs, or lessen crushed wing.)Soon enough you turn a corner and spy something delicious. A huge barrel-like satellite is wedged against the roof, slightly bowed where it didn't quite fit into the small cavern. It has many hollow rods that point from it in groups of two or three in various directions. Some appear to be connected to the main body with cables, others with thin wires and some with cages half-full of metal rods.The thing has large wings of black material, most of which are crumpled or snapped. It many horns and antennae. On the downward facing surface, you see a red blinking panel. It has many lights dotted around, small ones on the end of its wings and horns, and bright ones that light up areas around it.It doesn't seem to have noticed you yet.>How do you approach it?
>>27252857>Roll 1d100 for whatever you decide!>Taking the second even roll.
Rolled 95>>27252857I'm throwing this roll away so someone else can have the second one because I have terrible luck!

Rolled 25>>27252857>Small mealsOooo I like this! Alright, remove scarred scales. Need to protect ourselves.Alright, then let's...I don't even know what the hell this thing is, but let's jump on it from behind, and devour!
>>27252872Sneak closerLessen crushed wing
Rolled 58>>27252857>Remove bruised ribs.Tip our hat to it and saunter on by.I mean, leap on it where the red light can't see us, and suck the Delicious out of it.>>27252886>>27252913Welp.
The bones in your wing knit themselves back together. They probably can't support your full weight in extended flight, but it should be enough for now.You decide to circle around behind it, to find a place it isn't looking and attack from there. You spring from your hiding place, darting across the open space to the next mound of rubble."Intruder alert!" the thing cries the moment you enter its field of view. One of the hollow tubes points towards you. With a blast it shoots a metal rod at you. The bolt whiffs past you, flying between your legs. It embeds itself in a pile of rubble which begins to collapse. Another tube points at the collapsing rubble, and an arc of light lances into it, slagging an ancient solar panel.You quickly jump behind some debris as everything settles.It occurs to you that the first weapon stopped pointing at you. You peer closer and see that it is blocked by the Delicious metal box's shoulder. It can't reach everywhere! It does seem that is has at least one weapon pointed in every direction.You think that ahead of you is only watched by a bolt gun, and behind you is only in the reach of the light arc.There must be some way of getting close to it.
Rolled 2>>27253197Let's use our Hyper reflexes to avoid the bolt gun. We can probably get past it easier, as opposed to a weapon that fires light.
>>27253197Knock a pile of metal towards the box thing and obscure his sight so we can charge
>>27253251seconding him, but not his roll
You heft a metal plate that is bit enough to cover you from the scrap pile hiding you and slide it out into the reach of the bolt gun."Intruder alert!" The Delicious voice cries, and three metal spikes embed themselves in the metal you are holding. You freeze, and nothing else happens.You grab a small piece of electronics in one hand and give your impromptu shield a kick before darting out of hiding.The plate rolls a short distance, and again a metal spike shoot out and punch through it. You activate your enhanced reflexes and watch as the weapon draws another spike from its rack, then fires it at the slowly falling shield. It draws a third spike and fires again, halting the shield's motion as it is nailed to the rubble.The weapon begins to turn toward you, so you toss the electronics you hold to the side, hoping to draw its attention.>Roll 1d100 for speed of throw!
The gun bears down on you, turning to point directly at your head. Then the circuit you threw lights up, and the boltgun turns away. The spike of metal shatters the electronics, spraying them across the clearing surrounding the delicious metal barrel.You arrive at your Delicious destination, crouched up under one of its wings out of reach of its weapons."Come out, intruder," it cries, "you must be terminated!"You are hungry.
>>27253559Dig in baby! Crack open that shell and feast!
>>27253559First eat metal delicious by cracking open like an egg! Then eat slug delicious by burrowing into its fatass back!
You dig your claws into the creature's armored shell, peeling back thin layers of protection. Inside you find the things mind, green and blue ceramic and many twisted cables and wires. You bite into it, shattering, grinding and devouring, pulling yourself into the creature's body and eating it from the inside out. It warbles quietly to itself, before dying.>Choose one of:>Radio Antennae - Long range communications!>Multi tracking - Attack two things at once without penalty!>Knowledge - Decoding Misc: System historyYou are sitting in the empty shell of the delicious thing you just ate. You hear movement outside.

>>27253649>Radio Antennae - Long range communications!
>>27253661>>27253669>>27253674While multi-tracking seems good, we'll only be able to attack two at a time. While it might be better for ambushes with two people, what about ones with three? Or four? Or five, or ten or twelve? It'd be a lot handier to be able to disrupt communications.
Rolled 7>>27253649>>Radio Antennae - Long range communications!

Your vocal range is now limited to a single voice.Cool metalic spines emerge from your back, sticking out from between scales. You focus, and can hear distant voices talking."We've got some minor micro-meteorite damage on collector 16, I'll have to patch it up for tomorrow. We have to look good on the big day, after all. Do we have spare parts in the dock or is someone going to have to go diving in storage?""It's in the dock. Can you get it done today? We're short on time.""Yeah, I expected this so I took lunch with me."You tune that out as you hear footsteps just outside the shell."Alright Carl," you hear the squelchy delicious thing say, "open 'er up and let's give you that charge."

>>27254097>To roll, put "dice+1d100" in the email field!>Rolling high is good!>Rolling low isn't.You brace yourself against some of the metal bones that ran through your last meal. You use your healed wing to push off from the back wall and slam your feet into the hull near the voice.Your talons distort the thin metal, leaving two clawed footprints."What the-? Carl?!" the slugthing asks.You slam downwards again, bursting open the sheet of metal and landing on the ground. You slip in the puddle of sludge, falling to your knees. You catch your fall with your hands. It seems that the delicious slimy meatball got out of the way.You look up and see that the thing stands, or perhaps lies, in front of you. Its eyestalks are retracting slowly.You are hungry.

Rolled 33>>27254232Tear out its eyes and then consume it.
You scrabble forwards, digging your claws into the rubble for grip. The meal before shrinks back, leaving an extended trail of slime. You will have to watch your footing here.You slash at it with your hands, claws raking across its upper body, aiming for its eyes. Unfortunately you miss, but you do score some light cuts on the things flesh. Your digits come away covered in slimy gunk.The creature swings at you with a glowing box. The cable hanging from it lashes out and catches you on the antennae. It gets tangled and your vulnerable sensory organs hurt under the lash, but doesn't seem to cause any lasting damage.>Roll 1d100 for whatever you do!>Smart moves have lower target DCs!

Rolled 74>>27254545Muh roll.
You spring up out of the slime and away from the things impromptu weapon. Your wings bear you aloft, and you flutter upwards. You fly over to a pile of rubble and throw some scrap at the creature. Or at least, you tried to throw it at the creature. You missed. The broken satellite lands in the puddle of slime a length or so to the left of the creature, shattering.You aren't very good at throwing things.You spring from your high vantage point, leaping over and behind the thing. Then you leap again, supported by your wings and arc towards it.The creature pulls a long reddish orange rod from the shattered satellite you threw. You land on the things back, slicing with your claws as you try to get a grip, preventing the fall with your flailing wings. The slimy meal spins and hits you with the rod. A surge of lightning wells up from the things hands. It arcs down the rod and into you, causing your wings to spasm.You screech as loudly as you can, and the meatsack recoils in surprise. Its eyes pop out of its head on their stalks and the whole thing shivers.You drop out of the air and fall on four limbs on the back of the creature. Somehow your claws manage to find purchase on its slippery coat and you dig in, attaching yourself to it.You lunge for the things eyes with your mandibles...>Roll 1d100 for eyeball licking!
You lash out once, twice. With two quick snaps you take the things eyes and swallow them whole. They are Delicious.The creature squeals and moans, thrashing about. You leap from its back and skid across a puddle of slime before coming to a rest on some raised solar panels."You arse! Die!"The blind creature thrashes about with its metal rod, slamming it against the ground and piles or rubble with enough force to bend the soft shaft. Each time it hits the lightning leaps from it and courses to the impact site.Then the creature goes silent, and begins to slink slowly around. It is heading towards you.>Roll 1d100 for whatever you do!>Taking the third roll!

You jump onto a pile of rubble, dislodging a large piece of shielding. Although it doesn't make much noise, the slugthing hefts its copper rod and throws it at the pile. You leap high and dodge the attack which, when it connects, arcs lightning through the whole pile of rubble.You land on the things slippery back, again balancing with your wings. You claw at its arm, slicing through the thick flesh. There doesn't seem to be a bone, and you tear almost completely through the limb, leaving it hanging uselessly. The creature squeals again, and grabs the glowing box with one hand, jamming its fingers into the sockets.There is a massive surge of lightning that courses through both you and the Delicious creature, causing you to spasm, claws clenching into the things arm unbidden. You are flung off its back and tear the arm from the creature, along with a long strip of flesh from down its side.Sensing an opening, you leap forward and slash at this exposed bare flesh before the slime can cover it. After a few swipes you reach its innards, and hurl them out onto the ground.You bite and claw at the thing, as it weakly bats at you, but it doesn't have much strength left.Soon enough you stand above your latest kill as it slime and blood run from it, mixing in the rusted junk that litters the floor.You are hungry.
You leap onto the thing, biting and slurping it up, slime and all.>Pick one of:>Slimy glands - Slippery!>Eyestalks - See from far away!>Electrovore - Eat electricity>You can also:>Heal (no damage>Recharge one bioweapon (Poison Glands [0/3], Hyper reflexes [0/2])>Shift biomorphs (Change up to 10% (4) of your active biomorphs for things already known.You are alone, in a low roofed cavern, surrounded by much scrap and debris.

>>27255144Electrovore, then Recharge Poison.Just think of what we can do with that Power Plant thing that we're going to. If we can find a way to beam it to us at will, then we will have all teh healz we will ever need.
>Looks like it's going to be near unanimous for Electrovore... But we'll give it a few more minutes.>Are you expressing it? Which biomorph are you losing to gain it? Air Sack was mentioned before.
>>27255245let's dump papermaking.
>>27255245Lose...uh...Photovore for now
>>27255245Lose the stinger.
Repress blubber, let's be lean and mean again.
>>27255245Photovore is probably a good one to lose. We don't really stay in one place...well, ever.
Your teeth and fangs change subtly, becoming laced with metal and conductive. You can now absorb electricity and use it to heal, recharge or shift.Your scales lose their solid green colouration, becomeing silvery and reflective. You can no longer heal from staying in bright light for a time.You find yourself standing in a pool of blood and slime, surrounded by metal wreckage and space debris. You can smell rust and gore, but nothing Delicious.You remember that the wreck around you is tasty, and there is a lot of it. You could find many a meal in here, if you want to spend the time.>[ ]Stay here and eat things? - Full heal, recharge and rework your biomorphs?>[ ]There's no time, just find an exit. - Leave and search for more Delicious things.
>>27255368full heal, but find an exit first, and stay nearby it
>>27255368full meal heal and recharge all
>>27255368Time? What is this 'time' of which you speak?We don't know what that is, remember?1
>>27255368I don't even remember all of our biomorphs. Would take too long. Let's just go look for more delicious stuff.
>>27255443>Err... Point.You dive into the twisted wreck of rubble, throwing aside things you can't eat and swallowing things you can. Soon you poison glands feel full, and your reflexes refreshed.>All bioweapons fullYou keep eating, allowing yourself to change your biomorphs and adapt.>Built an adorable murdermachine mode!>Pick a size category>Pick either 30 or 40 biomorphs, depending on which size you choose.>Any combination in any form is allowable, provided you don't have more then 3 or 4 biomorphs on each limb, depending on size.>The list of known biomorphs can be found here, along with explanations of their functions: http://pastebin.com/3FuwK5Fs
>>27255546yeah, what are our current biomorphs?also, I don't think we could go large. It would seriously interfere with our stealth.
>>27255572i say stay with what we have. it seems to work, and changing things around without reason isnt really the type of thing we do. it isnt metagaming, just isnt in character
>>27255572It says Pastebin under Heavy Load for me
>>27255572>>27255645Same with me. So let's jut stick with what we have.

>>27255674Uh...well we can look through the pastebin after threads over, and say we changed to that next thread?Oh, no wait we need the metal for that...Well I want to at least give the pastebin a once over before I agree with going on
>>27255690Ooooh I like this!
>>27255699>It seems to be back up now.
>>27255690Remove Ovaries. That'd take too long too, I think- and remove Suckers. Take the Antenna and Air Sack. Jamming and disorienting will definitely help.
>Alright, it's clear that I wasn't really prepared for this. We'll call an>[End of thread!]>now, and I'll try to reformat the biomorph list so it's readable and easy to understand, then we'll start next thread with the morphing and go from there.>Is everyone okay with that?>I'll update the twitter (@solartopee) with the new formats and lists when they're done. I'll try to put things into a nice image format so they can be posted on 4chan with minimum effort, and we don't have to worry about pastebin being down.>Next thread should be on Friday, or the weekend. Regrettably this week is rather busy for me.

>>27255958Shit, forgot ribs. A lot of these aren't listed in the pastebin...36/40
>>27255958>Ach, it looks like I forgot to update the list. I thought I had done that yesterday.>Technically it's 1 slot for "Limbs at all" and then another 1 for "two extra limbs", bringing you to six.>"Frilly bits" are the Pleopods that you find on the bottom of lobsters and yabbys. I'll update the name.>>27256029>That too? Looks like I've overlooked it. This isn't meant to happen at all!
>>27256029>It appears that was because you never actually picked ribs. I had my notes mismatched at some point. This is might embarrassing.
>>27256069>LimbsOh. Well alright. Do...Pleopods any any use at all now that we're medium? Seems pretty useless to me.>>27256069Well either way, that's my pick for our build. Takes out a lot of the extra stuff I think...unless I missed a defensive upgrade.
>>27256097Wait, we didn't? Are you sure? Because I swear we did... what did we take instead?
>>27256097Eh, don't sweat it. We understand it's a lot to keep track of.
>>27256102>They're good for swimming? They were combined with feathers to create highly manipulable feathers. Perhaps you can find a use for them.>>27256109>>27256130>You took heart instead.>So I guess ribs are a freebie!
>>27256173Oh. Well, I suppose that's something then.>Took heart instead of ribsI swear I don't remember that...but yay~Anyway, that's my build for us above then, I think.
Hey guys, due to the vague description of paper making, we can technically make stuff out of electricity now!
>>27256291How.....how would that even WORK?
>>27256291>blatant powergamer detectedIt's a funny idea, but you can't honestly think Toque would allow that. Don't be so hard on the guy.
>>27256301>Through a perverse mixture of creativity and movie magic.>It'd be extra fun if you learned how to code. Then you can inject viruses into things!>>27256315>I kinda want you guys to so silly awesome things with your biomorphs. As it states in the rules, and has for some time, combining biomorphs is encouraged and expected.
>>27256354>Injecting viruses....what...what? How does that even make sense?I mean, I understand wanting some awesome combos, but I thought we were working from some frame of reality
>>27256368>My yardstick is asking if it would be out of place if it appeared in an episode of star trek. Could you get a creature which drains power from the ship, and through those power conduits starts to mess with the systems and take over, piloting the ship into an ion storm for its own benefit? If the answer is yes, then we can include it.>I can rename 'papermaking' to 'food repurposement' if you like.
>>27256396I've never seen star trek so...fair enough.
>>27256396>star trek logicSooo....basically we can do anything.
>>27256410>You ought to, it's entertaining.>>27256418>Except you're the alien menace creating the problems. You don't have to worry about how to solve it, that's everyone else's problem.
>>27256438Yo Toque, just a thought I had for future biomorphs.You could have one of the 'choices' we can pick from be reducing the space other biomorphs take up.Like, once we have a bunch of bones, and we eat something with a full skeleton, we can reduce those things to like 'Skeleton', and free up room for future, higher 'tier' stuff.
>>27256483Organ systems would also be useful for freeing up space they'll also have maybe even combine effects. Anon would be lovely.
>>27256483>So completing sets lets you get the whole set for less then its cost?>eg: Skull + ribs + spine + pelvis = Skeleton, costs 2/3 slots?>The cost of biomorphs is meant to be important, but at the same time you shouldn't feel that things are absolutely mandatory.
>>27256605Yes, just reducing the cost a little will help.And I realize it's important! But you should also realize, the more biomorphs we get, the more difficult choosing is gonna be, slowing down threads immensely.Let me put it this way: Would you rather 10 of our biomorphs be crazy interesting unique stuff for us to combine and blow up people with, or would you rather that same 10 all be skeleton pieces that basically just 'protect us better'?tg is paranoid, we're gonna want the protection.Now, better bones? those shouldn't be grouped up, I think. Like, Heavy bones would affect anything in the skeleton catagory, but would always cost extra. So would, say? hollow bones, or whatever.
>>27256418>Sooo....basically we can do anything.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bBD5yyT-s0WELCOME TO THE U.S.S MAKE SHIT UP!
