Also make sure the Marauder com box is in working order>Production4 SST's close quarters variety>extraPray to whatever Gods the Memor believe in.
Rolled 27>>27324778Okay, so in light of the discovery that we have a massive force of advanced fleshbeasts that can tear through our best forces with ease heading towards us from underground in this turn (possibly the next), and that any possibility of retreat/reinforcement is cut off due to Monster Mayhem initiating this turn (maybe next)...I have no fucking clue how we survive this.
>>27324808This, using the 100 that was rolled by smar/tg/uy
Well, now that one of the rules may have been thrown out, I'm not entirely sure how many of them apply or if any of them have any credibility anymore.

>>27324832We are fighting in our own base.As they say "you shall sink in it".We'll only have a chance if we can maintain structural integrity. There are no Marauder bombings that will help us. The Ghouls are away. All we can pray for is that our spider's will help pull us through.I specifically was a proponent of their creation after the revelation of things in the tunnels being difficult.Spiders excell in tunnel combat, and like all of richards creation, they grow on the cropses of enemies.
Rolled 93>>27324778Hey guys, I just thought of something.In light of the rumbling beneath our base, and the fact the She Who Hungers wants Cloara alive, it seems almost certain that we'll be attacked from INSIDE our base.Hey guys, guess what?>Our base is designed to keep things from getting out.>Muahahahahaha!I wondered when that'd come into play as a good thing.
Rolled 60>>27324874Well then, spiders all the way
Rolled 14>>27324874Yes Richard is quite the ingenious war criminal Mad scientist we know. >>27324896Its Clora'Zel. >>27324896Finally someone realizes have a base designed to keep things in not a bad thing.>>27324869wont happen 100 wasn't linked to an action otherwise I would of taken it.
Rolled 80>>27324896We have that as a blessing too.>>27324874If you really planned out those spiders because you saw a danger in the tunnels, then I applaud you anon
Rolled 6>>27324915Dam, no mind murder today
Any chance we can turn on those LAST STAND protocols again? Over ride so as to not attack our forces?
Rolled 13>>27324808Fortifications are underway.1 resource consumed.Mother spider research completed. self destruct/suicide bomb upgrade partially complete.SST's constructedbeware SSTs can't fight in the underground quarters due to the hallway size. Unless you plan to take a Digga Drilla and completely wreck everything.

>>27324964Question. These spiders are mechanical right?Any chance we can start chruning out these guys in the factories instead?Maybe recycle some fleshbeasts into them?
Rolled 54>>27324870Let's use Wrath on Clora's sisterAnd let's question Clora's about it fucking NOW
Rolled 66>>27324976>Military>Basic 1Research the Webby. We will choke them with webs>Basic 2(someone think of something)>ProductionIf can produce more Spider Mothers. If not, 25 of the ST's (can they fit in the tunels?) of again, the close quarters variety
Rolled 63>>27324995Dam, gotta sleep. All I have to say is PREPARE
Rolled 8>>27324896We need to come up with a plan to take advantage of this.Oooh.How about we flood the base with spiders, then withdraw all our forces to the outer perimeter?By the way, She Who Hungers is worth her salt. We're not going to be only attacked from the inside. We'll likely get attacked from without first.So maybe we more like put the spiders in secret areas with a release trigger ready to go when the fleshbeasts breakin.Also, let's tell Clora to keep all her fleshbeasts inside the base for "protection reasons". Also, she can't know about the spiders and should be kept abreast of as little as possible about our military plans (why was she so reluctant to let us examine her psychically at the start of Part 1 anyway?). If she's stuck in there with her beasts and she's not a traitor, well those guys are as good at CQC as any strongarm. If she's stuck in there with her beasts and she IS a traitor (more likely) she gets eaten by spiders with the rest.So let's put our stock into getting spiders ready, and let's get the Prophet of Fate prepared to do tremendous battle. He'll have to be able to break the two broodmothers' control on everything/combat their considerable psychic abilities without any other heroes to help.Let's do it.
Rolled 35>>27324995Before we can think of using wrath, we must first find her location. Secondly, we don't even know her own psionic abilities. She's fooled our own hivemind.>>27325011Basic 2Have Prophet and the Mulim research psionic cleansing/shielding. Let us cut off any psionic ties she may be having on us.
Rolled 43>>27324981Negative they are a biotech/bionic crime against nature.Factory can only churn out purely mechanical things.Possible.>>27324995She doesn't know anything. She did know about an eccentric cousin of hers though. Not quite sure how their supposed to be related either...
Rolled 29>>27325011>>27325027>MilitaryTell all our friends and foes, the Marauders, the Ghouls, even the bandits if they shall speak, that a great danger is upon us. A danger far greater than anything we or they have ever faced. If we die, they are next.
Rolled 25>>27325026She already knows about the spiders in fact she helped create them.
Rolled 36>>27325011SSTs can't fit in the tunnels. In some/most places however STs can.
Rolled 33>>27325038Well she asked Alexis where her "precious sister brood-kin" was.>>27325047Yes, but she doesn't have to know about us putting the spiders in the airvents unless she has to know. If you get what I'm saying.
Rolled 87>>27325069So we build ST close quarters combat
Rolled 38>>27325039I like this idea, but it should definitely be a "basic" action, not military.
>>27325069Then build 25 ST's. Of the kind meant to chew things up close in short order.Also, we should not forget the surface defense.I have a proposal. 2 Rings of defense, with exit strategies and scorched earth tactics to be used in case one line falls.Next, two sepearate teams will leave the sides of our base, to facilitate an emergency flanking maneuver or detect any swamp creatures trying to make their own flank attacks. They can also provide artillery support.
>>27325085Our basic actions are filled with Basic 1Research the wbe spider. To choke the tunnels and slow down enemy movement.Basic 2Research psionic cleansing/shielding. To see if we can't cut off She Who Thirsts from the hivemind
Rolled 88>>27325099She Who Hungers*Don't even. It's based off the first thread, where the Prophet of Fate reached out his awareness, then touched on a massive one that was filled with only an all-consuming hunger. He barely managed to survive the contact, and it likely tipped She Who Hungers off to our existence in the first place.
>>27325114So we're going to have to fight with her grubby claws in our heads? Watching through our eyes and ears.
Rolled 21>>27325122I'm not sure if the possible military benefits of having Marcus/Ghouls/Dreamers/etc. coming to our aid (maybe). Outweighs the benefits of possibly shunting She Who Hungers out of our heads.
Rolled 53>>27324841We'll be having a major reassesment of the rules after this.Assuming we make it, after this.
Rolled 77>>27325077Month 581 turn until monster mayhem begins.>>27325077"I know not of her brood kin."An envoy was sent out to all nearby factions. Ghouls laughed and said their used to this sort of thing after all why do you think we're digging in so much?Marauders said we were on our own as they have now deemed that we do not share the Former Master's glory. Strange bandits are absent for some reason. The only thing we founded was their now insanely fortified yet seemingly empty areas.Research on web spiders completed.1 spider mother constructed.25 STs constructed15 plasma throwers 10 bandits.
Rolled 52>>27325135We don't even know if anyone will come to our aid. Or if we can push her out.It's going to be absolutely difficult to fight an enemy who knows your every move because they can hear your every thought.

Rolled 61>>27325174It seems user we got quite unlucky as the Monster Mayhem commenced sooner then expected.
Rolled 85>>27325151Hmm. I wish we could move into one of those.
Rolled 63>>27325174>>27325174Anything to buy us some time. Warboss Dual Fists, your name shall never be forgotten.You were the biggest, baddest, greenest, Memorkiest of them all.
Rolled 50>>27325183Breed you spiders! Breed!Any chance we can get the Broodmother's aura to help the spider mother breed? She can work on mechanicals.
Rolled 14>>27325183Well here we go I suppose.>>27325174We need to erect statues of fallen heroes at some point. Ramona first.
Rolled 100>>27325213Need more then one vote to sacrifice....
Rolled 46>>27325247uh well fuck. I suppose its gonna be one HELL of a sacrifice...then. Just like Ramona I suppose...shit.
>>27325247Hopefully a spider bonus too.
Rolled 24>>27325256Oh, and what if we get DUAL 100S AGAIN??!!!
Rolled 50>>27325183Monsters are too thick our forces cannot even break out of our outer-perimeter. Only reason defenses are holding is due to them being entirely online.Spiders have been dispatched into the tunnels. ST's have been deployed.15 plasma throwers10 bandits have been constructed.
>>27325276I suppose this is a bad time to ask for an actual map of the base, heh

Unless we can put it to something else can we?
Rolled 67>>27325291Yes. Better to sacrifice a hero than to lose the game. And if we sacrifice him and all die anyway it's a moot point all the same.Really quick though, let's ask him how he got his arm.

Rolled 85>>27325406Let me attest, your hints are very gentle and if you don't have the whole context of having been through the entire quest, you can't get the significance of them.It's not a bad thing, I like it but I can't reasonably expect everyone to read through 10 long quest threads.
Rolled 94>>27325415No confirm counter 100 to the 1 >>27325417
Rolled 79>>27325425>>27325417>>27325431There is always heroic sacrifice user.>>27325442That is why I break them up. Some appear throughout while others only show up in a couple threads. >>27325448That will only cancel the 1 and not allow any other benefit.

Rolled 80>>27325417Our military forces Fell back into to better defensive positions...only to discovered that the enemy was lying in wait. Our forces are being slaughtered user. As they literally fell right into the enemies lap.Richards research in Jumper spider...we don't know what happened user. One minute he was with us the next the entire labs went into lockdown. I can access it to see whats going on thanks to security breaches. Only thing I can say user its BAD.Broodmother tried to asists the Spider mother only for it to...explode for some reason. Clora'zel is wounded thanks to it...and badly.Our factory has been overwhelmed and destroyed. Even worse for some reason the self destruct protocols didn't occur.>>27325480>>27325490>>27325498Heroic Sacrifice confirmed. + 100 for increased EPIC effect.The Fall of Warlord Duel Fist will commence shortly. Best hang on to your butts cause this is gonna be awesome. As unlike the other hero Warlord Duel Fist could of lived this GREATLY enhances the effect.
Rolled 88>>27325524http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EptSSXNHIfg for the final stand of Warlord Duel Fist.
Rolled 92>>27325524No one, not even you, will remember if we were just bad men or evil. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that today, one stood against many. That's what's important.By all that pleases you, dice gods; so grant us this one request. Grant us revenge! And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!
Rolled 69>>27325524You are Warlord Duel Fist. Today is the day you die. For some reason you can just know. Looking at the maps it was clear your forces were getting annihilated. Only thing that seemed to be holding them off was the automated defenses....EDE I gotta a favor to ask.Yes Warlord?When you see EVE apologize for me. She really wanted to see you by the way.What?Warlord Duel Fist raises his bionic arm. "How do you think I got this? Just do me one favor deploying ALL expendable forces with me and have your bots work with the automated defenses for maximum effect. Meanwhile have everyone else retreat to protect the civilians."Done...however I cannot contact Richard so his borgs are unavailable. May I ask one thing however Warlord?Make it quick.How did you know EVE....Long ago I got lost found myself in strange place. In exchange for giving me my arm she wanted to get a hold of an old friend who she lost touch with. Problem was I didn't know where to find you. Then one day I encountered the Memor I later joined them because I respected power. Thing was however you here too...so I did my best to guide along to find your friend. Things didn't work out according to plan though cause I sorta didn't know where EVE is or how to get back. In any case I will take care of Richard. Goodbye EDE just know your friend is still around and wondering where your at."With that General Duel Fist departed heading to the compromised labs on his way to the surface. There were literal tides of foes...this was when Duel Fist finally decided to use his second fist. As it slid and pieced itself down into a cannon. He started fighting his way through tides of enemies reinforced by EDE's security bots. While further away a second pincer advanced this one made up of Clora Fleshbeasts including herself despite being so wounded had injected some hydra.
Rolled 33>>27325660I like it.
Rolled 21>>27325687Tides of enemies stood in the way. Mountains of corpses soon built up. Bot after bot failed. For every bot that fell they took 5 of the enemy but that still wasn't even. For everyone of Clora fleshbeast that fell that took with 2 of the enemy. It still wasn't enough. Then however Warlord duel fist penetrated the Richards laboratory only to find himself now attacked by the leaper Spiders. He was surrounded by all sides but he fought on. With no armor and nothing but his bare hands. He was about to fall where he heard a strangely familiar string of profanity and strange words. "I am gonna make you into my new mudpie for my granny but she hates BUGS." There was glowyJoe who somehow leaped onto Warlord Duel Fists back.Its PARTY TIME, screamed GlowyJoe Duel Fist couldn't help but agree. As together with Joe's firing of many bullets and lobbing of much explosives from A Warlord's shoulders. With Duel Fist showing the enemy the art of the Single Iron Fist style. They quickly made progress. Only to find Richard having somehow Jury rigged a new monstrosity. His only words being MEAT MISTER AND MISSES SPIDERNAUGHT. Which quickly fell upon the enemy. With Richard screaming while riding the both of themYOU THINK YOU FUCKERS CAN MESS WITH SCIENCE AND ME NOT KNOW ABOUT IT AHAHHAHH I HAVE KNOWN SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING.After that Duel Fist fought his way to the surface with an army of borg, bot, and even fleshbeast at his back for some reason heading straight to the mobile factory. Through tides of monster, Advanced fleshbeast, and even feral ghoul. Once there Warlord Duel Finished had the factory leap up in mid air as he detonated the plasma veins all at once...which slaughtered everything on or near the ground. Then it ran down the tunnels frying everything lurking down there. With Warlord Duel Fist charging right behind it. Tunnel through tunnel he fought both him and GlowyJoe carrying a massive amounts of explosives on their back.
Rolled 87>>27325836The tunnels allowed them to flank the enemy relieving our forces as the foes were caught between the two like a sandwich made of slaughter and yet more slaughter. All the while GlowyJoe throwing explosives around collapsing entire networks of tunnel despite how fortified they may have been. But deeper and deeper they fought the more enemies that came around them. Attacking from all six sides. By this time everyone but the Team up of GlowyJoe and Warlord Duel Fist have either fallen or stayed behind. But deeper they fought ever deeper. Through so many enemies tunnels literally were completely stuffed chalk full of them. The two of them actually had to start using explosives just to make room for them to advance. Finally however they reached a the central Nexus. What the two of didn't know is that by that time it had been entire months had passed. In only a matter of weeks they had completely taken out the tunnel networks anywhere NEAR the Northern swamp because Warlord Duel Fist Sense of direction was so fucking bad. They had found themselves at the heart of the very nexus itself despite the ludicrous amount of detours and decoys. There they found the heart of the beast so to speak and the lost hero Alexis who was a captive.There in a massive cavern where all the tunnels eventually led both those new or ancient. Stood such a scientific monstrosity that even Richard would of of been jelly."I must say this sweet young thing could keep her mouth shut despite not knowing anything she kept quite for such a LONG time. Must say though its impressive the amount of havoc you caused its going to take me centuries to rebuild it all. Damn swamp ground makes everything just SOO slow going. Ah but before I forget you do know that if anything happens your friend dies too right?...I am guessing you never heard of Giggles then.oh so THATS what I heard earl- wait second where the fuck she go, Muttered the creature looking around for its no longer captive.
Rolled 40>>27325980All that time she was there.All those months, rotting under us like a cancer.
Rolled 96>>27325980Ah fuck so much for THAT idea I suppose. How depressing I had such a good speech too...Ah well I suppose you DO know that your completely surrounded right. this time however your RIGHT under old mother! With the endless hordes that entails. I am afraid its your loss Duel Fist and ah Joe I think it was?Its GLOWYJOE, corrected GlowyJoe who despite his constant barrage of bad speech and curses voice STILL wasn't hoarse.ahh fine just fine, muttered the Creature.I am gonna guess your Clora'Zel sister?What oh god no I am Nex'Wor I am just in charge of the tunnels. You know attacking from below, breaking into secure facilities, and ruining stuff that sort of thing. Oh also-Looks like its time for you to die, finished Duel Fist raising his second Fist.Oh this is gonna be such fun!that was when from everywhere came monsters pouring everywhere. Including Brood Guard and worse. Still wasn't enough to stop Warlord Duel Fist from fighting through them. Unfortunately for him however he was out of explosives same with GlowyJoe. So they wouldn't be able to collapse it or even blow a passage through as quickly became evident as the corpses began to pile up. It didn't stop them as it wasn't long before they they fought their way to the scientific monstrosity that would made Richard weep out of pure jealousy. So I must ask how do you plan to bring this place down when your all out of explosives, asked the creature toying with both of them. As they both barely struggled to hang on. How why with your corpse of course, stated Duel Fist.Oh really now and how is that?Because in the primary tunnels you act a speed way. Meaning you pick up all the debris and act a mass blindingly fast transport.Oh very good figured out the worms were I too bad your all out of explosive!Heh you do know not all the explosives detonated right, stated War Lord Duel Fist as he raised his bionic arm with his last shot from the cannon would hit the creature.
>>27326105And our lovely alexis too
Rolled 55>>27326105Fuck, I never thought brood mothers were just distributed through the swamp willy-nilly. God Dammit.
Rolled 16>>27326109For the thing was Warlord Duel Fist single remaining shot was a trick shot. For you see a lot of the explosives were digestible and got stored IN the very body itself. Basically if you ate enough of it you literally became a walking time bomb. That shot was designed to activate said bomb. Considering how that creature basically ate everything in the tunnels...it itself was the bomb. And that wasn't even including the explosives it missed in the side passages. Basically it was the single largest living detonator and bomb to exist in the entire apocalypse. With that single shot it would begin to detonate and it too will detonate all those other explosives and anything else lurking down there. Or release it. ITS BOOM BOOM TIME. Are the final words of GlowyJoe right before Warlord Duel Fist shot at the creature which missed.HAHA- only to hit an appendage of it against a wall. OH shit- were the final words of said creature. As it began to detonate with all those caches of explosives and worse. That was when Warlord Duel Fist begun to look around. Enjoying the view of a literal river of gore, mountains of corpses, screaming monsters trying to escape desperately, a collapsing ceiling that would bury everything and for some reason GlowyJoe taking a shit in the Nex'wors exploding mouth. Warlord took out his cigar lit it with a spout of plasma from his bionic arm. Looking around he noticed everything was beginning to light up as the explosives began to really cook off properly including living explosive that is Nex'Wor. The final words spoken by Warlord duel Fist after he took his first and last puff of his final cigar before everything lit up in a blinding flash light as everything went to hell around him without giving a single care in the world. At that moment he was at inner peace and blissful. Only when he looked around did he say those finals words of to the perfect timing of-"it's boom time."

Rolled 29>>27326300Does that mean you'll run a quest tomorrow if this is still up?
>>27326300Then we'll be sure to keep it going.also>>273262781.) Oh mannnnn I don't know where to even begin2.) We're wrecked. Shit, we lost our hero but live to tell the tale. But the good news is we've basically cleared the land under us for good right?3.) How much of our facility was lost? Any research salvagable? Have the spiders survived? Multiplied even? It's gonna be a feast even if we have one left4.) Can we develop a way to prevent further undermining? Like some sort of steel foundation or buried defenses?5.) Injuries. Whose hurt, how badly, will the broodmothers medecine be of any effect6.) How long before we can expect a counter attack? Have we made a dent in their forces or barely scratched the surface?7.) How you constantly come up with such great material is beyond me.
Rolled 86>>27325660I think the dice gods have listened anon >>27326278Do not waste their gift.
Rolled 93>>27326282>>27326300Can we use that 100 to account for Alexis escaping and running off out of the tunnels while no one was watching? Putting her satyr legs to a test like no other tectus had before.
>>27326342That would be lovely.Someone to live and tell the tale of the last stand of Warlord DuelFists
Rolled 35>>27326342I could get behind something like that
>>27326302Warlord Duel Fist is too cool for lame ass shades. He prefers that the enemies dying breath is them looking into his actual eyes and seeing what lurks there.>>27326308Sure. It also gives me time to come up with something for that 100.>>27326342Never underestimate Giggles dear anon.>>273263171 continue2 somewhat. There are a truly nightmarish and dizzying number of things lurking underground. Basically what they lost were ALL their speed ways and private accesses. 3 Facility only has some holes to patch...and figuring out wherever the hell Richard went. Research see Richard. No spiders survived. 4 Defenses are already built in. The reason it took them so long damned long was because they had to find some cracks to exploit. 5 Just about everyone is seriously injured. Dosages of Hydra are becoming a hot commodity. As for healing broodmother Clora'Zel is busy nursing the wounded turns out she is really quite good a it in a disturbingly/creepily motherly way.6 Next counter attack is unknown. At the moment stating that their more then a little shell shocked is a massive understatement. As for damage to their forces unknown. 7 this is what happens when you starve someone with an over active imagination, traditional gamer who hasn't had a game in years, believes in writing that flows, someone who loves coming up with settings/weird shit and a shitty gm that /tg/ redeemed.
>>27326399and my named dropped figures.
Rolled 77>>273263172/4/6) Nex-bastard said it would take centuries to repair the damage that Dualfists had done before he set off the most powerful explosive in our post-apocalyptic setting. I don't think undermining will be a problem, I also think that we took out at least a decent chunk of their forces (bloodied the nose anyway). Their tunnel network was also their primary means of transport, I'm extrapolating. It's entirely possible that due to generations of influence on monsters the advanced fleshbeasts can move about the deepswamp with impunity, and chose to use tunnels to conceal themselves...but I don't consider it likely. 3) You know, the spiders are cool and all...but I think we need to focus more on developing mutations and psionics. At least until we get access to some better facilities for development of technology. Technology is definitely our weak point, along with manufacturing. Mutants have a severe penalty to researching, and a moderate one to industrial production, but those two are the only things we ever want to do. We have a goddamn biotech facility of world-ending proportions but we want a Massive spidertank instead of a building-sized psionic-death-dealing mass of tentacles and eyeballs.Really though, remember our last assault? Against the high tech bandits? They had a psionic among their number that held our Forbidden Bandit in place, and that guy wasn't necessarily even hooked into a hive mind. Imagine what our Prophet of Fate could do if we researched his Wasteland Psionic crystals and found some way to implant them into every Memor, then have them lend him psychic aid whenever needed. (Or whatever those crystals will end up doing) We could've frozen all of the attacking fleshbeasts in place, then killed them with a thought.Our bonus to psionic research isn't even as good as our bonus to biological research though. Seriously, mobile-base sized monster. Think about it. Deepswamp has them. I'm sure.Anyway, that's just smar/tg/uy's thoughts.
Rolled 83>>27326399>No spiders survivedSon of a bitch. No richard to boot that was our only ticket to a quick built military while we build our forces.We might have to resort to "artificial breeders". Ugh.
Rolled 75>>27326470Spiders are simply there to fill in the gaps and provide support. A boost to where the actually military should be (which is right now royally fucked). There' not the bulk, that should be us.>magine what our Prophet of Fate could do if we researched his Wasteland Psionic crystals and found some way to implant them into every MemorWe were considering psionic mutations last thread, because right now we have to consider that the hivemind is psionically corrupted and we'll need to deal with that. The Mulim will be good for that though.As for other mutations we were thinking of some kind of brain mutant, either good at actual math and calculations to substitute for Marcus loss.
>>27326506Don't forget their cyborg, part fleshbeast so it's possible we can mutate them with the Broodmothers powers. But we can forget all about them if we can't find Richard.
OP are you still here I have one last question
Rolled 84>>27326506I liked the idea of a brain mutant, but in this world biological options are just as viable as technological ones, and I can't conscience spending the huge expenditure of time that was required to develop the brain mutants. Look at the force we just faced, we've not encountered anything yet that could've stood against them. We had to burn a fate point. Yeah, there wasn't really a clear statement on whether or not how hivemind was corrupted. I do wonder what the "Penalties for even the best of things." are.
>>27326549still around but not for long getting quite sleepy.
>>27326565Okay. The Memor rules. How much do you expect are plausible to be thrown out. Are any of them still credible?
>>273265731.) Broodmother can now convert humans to mutant and join hivemind with telepathic ease. Not garaunteed but just "encouraging". Addition of other efforts to win hearts and minds still recommended. Offspring of these normal converted concieve and grow up in the Memor manner and don't degenerate the genepool.2. Artificial breeder feasble. Can be useful for generating soldiers in quick sucession, but these should not be allowed to breed or risk degredation of future generations.3. Broodmother discovered in underground facility. Increases fertility rate of reproduction and intercourse in her broodnest vicinity. Releases juices especially useful for healing, but which cannot be stored and must be used in her vicinity as well.4. Absolute control of base functions and robots by A.I. restored.5. Hivemind membership is by consent and mutation, all entirely easy thanks to broodmother. Once joined of volition, loyalty is, in practice, assured. The hivemind does not allow for slavery
>>27326591Still seems perfectly good anon. At least that one anyway.
>>27326591-of it's members within the hivemind, nor crimes, and major actions within the hivemind are monitored and by consent of the hivemind masses.6. Certain hero units have the strength and willpower to hide their thoughts from the hive-mind, even massive plots and secrets. This can lead to mistakes and unseen actions and conspiracies by the heroes, but the rest of the Memor masses do not and should not be feared of treason or action without hive-mind consent or supervision.7. New strain of supervirus by Richard. One strain been deemed feasible for battle purposes. Other strain of contagion particularly deadly and left for "last resort/final solution" purposes.8. The hivemind/overmind is capable of surviving without the presence of the Prophet of fate.9. Radiation now heals. Don't ask how. It's mutation I ain't gotta explain.10. Broodmother aura vicinity can make everything better, organics, machines and all.11. Broodmother's subliminal "encouraging" can be used to increase convert turnout, however expect increased dissent among those with the experience or intelligence to detect it, and vice versa. The more experience the more likely they will pick up, while conversely the less experienced the less they will pick up. As such, populations used by the Broodmother (and any other psionic/subliminal/chemical) methods should be used on a group where they would not be likely to pick up, or dissent by the rejectors would not pose a serious issue.What really concerns me the most is the loyalt of the Memor common man. Can his devotion really be corrupted? Or is it simply that he is tricked?
Rolled 29>>27326551Jesus it's late at night, dat grammar.Anyway, here's important issues I think we need to tend to ASAP. A: Scout, and if they're still empty, occupy them. We'll have to be careful though, and if the Psytech Bandits come back...Well, we can't afford a two-front war. Maybe we'll be lucky and we can produce better biofuel than them and offer them some for a base. Might need to rebuild our troops a little bit before this is viable, no use taking something you can't hold...then again, maybe our reputation would help with that.B: Get our base back into running condition. I think we should prioritize getting into new facilities over improving ours though. There's not a single other faction around confined to one base.C: Investigate the creatures Alexis saw in the tunnels that "Moved in a fashion similar to the Memor." That's definitely a hint from OP.D: Search for EVE. Robots/bionics, proper technological research/production facilities, and another AI that can delimit ours. That's an invaluable facility. It'd be really damn nice to now how this place went to shit and where the look for the central swamp-causing brood mother.E: We should definitely scrape the battlefield for scraps of advanced fleshbeast and feed them to Clora. She's our only means of producing troops at a reasonable rate, and it'd be nice if those troops were upgraded.
>>27326601Crimes can occur just quite difficult to happen.Devotion cannot be corrupted as its picked up on REALLY quickly. It possible just hellishly difficult to both corrupt and then keep it secret. It is however quite possible to be tricked.
Rolled 14>>27326601We really need to start working on our recruitment efforts. Next time were researching that suggestion serum.And reaching good candidates for recruitment. God knows we already found them but we're always too busy to get to them.
>>27326625With Richard gone we're at the loss of our best scientist too. Broodmother can try I guess.>No engineer>No scientist>Our best Warrior deadThings are looking grim.
Rolled 67>>27326636Which is why I was suggesting the brain mutant. Even if they're not the best engineer or scientist alone, there is strength in numbers. Like a cluster computer.
I was thinking, if we're worried about future tunneling by the enemy we can mutate some kind of worm. These worms will burrow into the earth, spread, but in the presence of air they rapidly dissolve into a kind of acid and collapse enemy tunnels.But then theres the issue of it they start to collapse our tunnels. If there were only a way to differentiate.That or some kind of siesmic hammer to strike the ground
Rolled 2>>27326654Maybe a mutant that specialises in burrowing and underground fighting?
Rolled 67>>27326654I like the worm idea. We could develop them in tandem with a digger mutant and have the digger mutant secrete some substance or other that keeps the worms away from our tunnels.On the other hand, we're dealing with a force of broodmothers here that are far older and more experienced than our one is. They could probably mimic any tunnel protection compound easily. It'd be hella effective against tech-enemies though.
Rolled 72It'd be really cool if we got some more bases. I think one of the reasons we face these do-or-die sort of situations so often is that we only have one base. All our eggs are in one basket, and it's one target for the enemy to throw all their forces at. They don't have to whittle down any defenses, take down any outlying bases, or anything, they just cruise right on up and we start fighting for our lives.
Rolled 72>>27326317>Rolled 88>>>27325524 #Vump
>>27326712As always, the key issue here is manpower.Everytime we want to conquer a base, move somehwere else, heck maybe even just make our base a little safer we don't ever have the means
Rolled 77The Marauders have abandoned us in our time of need. The ghouls were of no use. God knows what the odd Bandits are up to these days.We haven't seen the Caravan in a year. Damn it sucks being the pariah race.

>>27330310The Glows Crew Raiders are on loan to us by GlowyJoe. Meanwhile the other bandits were here do to Warlord Duel Fist...I do not know how we can ensure that they don't do anything now that the Warlord is gone.
>>27330310I think I may be the only one awake and participating right now. Oh well, if this thread survived through the night then people will come back to it sooner or later.>>27330309Do you have a list of researchable items?

The feral ghouls.
>>27330423The 100 has an interesting effect that you will get to see in a few turns...
>>27330444Well that's sufficiently vague as to be threatening.
>>27330425Well we sort of have the Tectus to where the buggers would reasonably fit (unless their steal/sensitive abilities are superior. But even then we can just further mutate the Tectus).The Viroz could be useful if, when Richard comes back, we can further develope the battle virus strain (or worse if we are under a sickness of our own).As always the Vizen would be enourmously useful for recruitment and likely conversion.
>>27330440Glowing flower was indeed the healing radiation one.We've had "Experimental Fluids" and "Finger Biter Fish" for years now. He threw those to us in the first thread, they might be important or they might bestow boons that wouldn't solve any of our current problems.I think we ought to research the Waste Crystals, then Experimental Fluids, then Finger Biter Fish as soon as we can.

>>27330469Buggers are not scouts. Not to mention all the older StrongArms are quite leery when it comes to their SUCKER ability. Apparently not fun to be on the receiving end of according to them.Viroz basically living plague cauldrons. Supposedly.Vizen are quite antisocial. They don't even like each other much less others. Problem is this data we have is quite old and what we picked up from the Warlord.
Rolled 97>>27330486Well, if they can prove to be more useful than control of even a fraction innumerable legions of ghouls, I suppose so.
>>27330469We should probably prioritize getting the Vizen. We need something that they want in order to secure their loyalty though. Also it's possible that they don't act as a faction but as individual units. You know, like Marcus' wife.
>>27330503First of all we don't have that many actions, but also that's a horrible plan. We need to nurse our wounds.
Rolled 50>>27330512>Buggers are not scouts.What are they then? Spies? Ambushers? Again we do have the Tectus for that. but if they are better in that or other ways , which I'm sure they are, then we should definitly recruit them sooner or later.
Rolled 93>>27330519As it happens you do know she plans to visit us in a few turns? Apparently she plans to have drinks with Clora'Zel claiming how she needs to relax and have some fun!I will admit I am a wee bit concerned about what may end up happening for the sake of 'fun'.
Rolled 47>>27330530We are still in the middle of fighting for control of our base. Nursing our wounds is a given, she's already passing around her serum. We cannot let anymore of our base fall into enemy handsAnd have or have we lost our second basic action EDE?
>>27330540Hah. Well that'll be neat to see.
Rolled 27>>27330553You have.
Rolled 41>>27330553Yeah we're still under attack by monsters for 2 more turns, we shouldn't be doing research until we first secure the base and we should find Richard for that.

Rolled 41>>27326278100After the explosion amongst the rebel rose up an surprisingly untoasty Warlord Duel Fist. As his eyes adjusted to the gloom however he realized he had a serious problem.First of all around him stood an amazing variety of advanced flesh beast that would even make the Brood Guard piss themselves. Second thing was there above and him all were tubes that poured forth more fleshbeast.'Third he finally realized that what lied above the cavern was the Head Lair of She Who Hungers as the Memor claimed.With a GlowyJoe at his back and both of them out of ammo. GlowyJoe said a most enlightening thing."So if more fleshbeasts keep on coming that means we never get to stop fighting yes?"Warlord Duel Fist was stunned and could only nod his head in agreement. Looks like he will get to fight to the end after all and not have it all go boom. This made him happy as he was always one for fighting. Both him and GlowyJoe prepared for the best and final fight. As the ground rumbled around them and the fleshbeasts woke up and advanced. Today Warlord truly blissful. He had saved his people and now he could do what he did best. He had no worries or complaints left only the moment as he raised his fists towards the oncoming horde.
>>27331742exactly why anyone who gets to know us and realizes those were all accidents [/spioler] just goes "oh god, they're all fucking idiots"
>>27331749We already sent them. That was only 2 SST's, back when we had dozens could churn out 8 per turn if we liked. It was peanuts for us to send those at the time.It was supposed to be a measely force anyway. Their only purpose is to act as hivemind eyes and keep things up while sort of saying "hey ghouls we're your palls".And yes that's exactly why they are there, so we can have hivemind access to the ghouls.
Rolled 52>>27331832And as of right now they're the only Memor we have in the outside world I think
>>27331815i wonder how long he will last fighting? months? years? with the Warlord and GlowyJoe you just never know
>>27331529This, but change production to producing explosivesso that we can arm the Glow Krew and bandits with what they like.
Rolled 62>>27331923If glowcrews and bandits with explosives will have a better time outside the walls than our tanks, why not.
>>27331923Do my rolls not show if they're made on my phone?
>>27331970you missed the 1
>>27331820Well the only people who are gonna get to knows pretty much join the mind with loyalty so no problems there unless it's a hero.fucking Marcus is probably spilling Memor secrets for a profit or a laugh"Their like a bunch spastic 5 year olds, shitting their pants at the first sign of trouble and charging to attack"
Rolled 54>>27332043Well he did ask the Broodmother for info on mutation, breeding, and stuff before he left
Rolled 24>>27330846Random event iniated.You find yourself awake in a strange bed and room. Surprisingly clean you might add that was when you realized that you had company. As sitting at a chair watching was a figure in strange type of armor.Hm so you have finally awoken. Must admit our doctors were a bit concerned but also amazed. Where am I?The Citadel otherwise known as the Fortress Containment. So I could of sworn I died...You did by the sounds of it but somehow you came back...kinda. Your friend brought you here.Why?"We are the only ones he knew of who knew how to somewhat deal with," the figures shrugs "whatever you became...kinda truth be told we have no idea how you turned out the way you did."That was when you got up.Oh guessing you want to stretch your legs?Yeah...I do have no idea how long I have been out. Feels like years.It was months, corrected the figure handing you some extra garments. "It can get chilly."After putting them on you went outside your room. It was largely empty and he was right despite the damp that hinted at wet heat. It actually was quite chilly. Down the metal passages and the blinking bleary ancient lighting. You trudged on with your...guide right next to you.I doubt you did this out of the kindness of your hearts so what did you get in return also what about what was with me?Hm what we got for helping you was a guaranteed armaments resupply. Good stuff too as for what was with you...follow me. With that the figure veered of going what seemed to be in circles only for it to open up to a garage yard. That was when you saw a strange vehicle which called out to you for some reason and a strangely familiar figure turned towards you. It was Markus but who was somehow...different now.Why its good to see you again...Ramona. damn all these fucking hundreds[/spoilers]
Rolled 51In any case what is the consensus?
Amazing, I JUST started following this quest on sup/tg/, and here it is!Something I've been dying to suggest - that we develop a mental attack - even if it's a very weak one and may even just be a glorified psionic scream - that can be targeted at anyone that any member of the hive can see.This might be presumptous, but there's just no way I'll be able to catch up in time. Any chance for a short summary of what's happened since thread 4?
Rolled 71>>27332133Oh fuck
Rolled 50>>27332175We have already developed Mass Telepathic Wrath.We just haven't really tested it yet. Presumably if one of our members see's someone or something all the Memor can channel it into rage and crush it. I think.
Rolled 84>>27332175It exists and is known as Wrath.
Rolled 42>>27332189Never underestimate Markus or the power of multiple 100s.
>>27332211>>27332222Awesome.Did we ever get around to developing serious guerilla tactics, sniper squadrons, scouts and artillery (seeing as we have absurdly good spotters by their very nature)?
>>27332133>>27332154>>27332222>>27332241i just have to know, are they still "on our side"
>>27332250we have had great artillery they just seem to get wiped out to much, the snipers are the tectus and they are quite good. though we need more of them
Rolled 98>>27332175As for since chapter 4>Develop a doomsday virus, although later we question if it is effective enough deliver the doomsday or not >Swamp gets invaded by a new faction of bandits with advanced weaponry>Attempt to fend them off. We get so SO close to winning except one bad roll fucks us over.>Before we can use the Virus, that's when Marcus comes out with his super secret project he hid from the hivemind, the Marcus Special Mobile shop. Destroys 2 of their bases, while his wife nukes the others causing a mass influx of ghouls>Then we play around with some science, with moderate rewards. The best part is the Broodmother went into hibernation and earned lots of powers>Then we create a new breed of mutant. The Tectus. Fast, agile, silent, eyes and ears of a hawk, with skin that can blend in their are the ultimate scout/sniper/sabotuer>Throught their scouting efforts we get a much bigger map>A 2nd new type of bandit builds a base. They mostly dig in, settle down, set up their city for themselves. In our ultimate wisdom (yeah right) we decide to attack before we even communicate or scout. Of course, it ended badly but we nuked one of their bases and the ghouls filled in. Turns out they weren't as bad as we thought, so we left them alone.>Then things get interesting.
Rolled 8>>27332250To a degree.>>27332258Unknown.
Rolled 77>>27332250>>27332277Yes, since the very begging. A memor telepathically see's and gives coordinates instantly to our mathematicians. The mathematicians, working telepathically in perfect simultanous coordination, calculate the necessary trajectory. Less than a second later, the teams get a telepathic message where to fire.Updates are, again, instantly given by the eyes of the scouts via telephathy. This allows for perfect precesion. Similarly the snipers act as so, no longer needing a spotter or line of sigh.The tectus has greatly enhanced this, as so has Torg and his artillery tactics
Rolled 74In any case what is the consensus for this months action.
>>27332290>>27332281so are you writing? or do you still need consensus?we really need to go find Richard and Alexis though im sure they will survive we still need to get to them before She Who Hungers does
>>27331529>Basic 1Have broodmother go about eating and assimilating the corpses of the fallen into more fleshbeast>Production 1General patching of of the most vulnerable spots of our basewe really need to crank out fleshbeasts cause they are really our strongest opprutunits, that and psionics
Rolled 1>>27332320BasicallyScout sees target - hivemind calculates - arty crews fire - update.But instead of radios where this could take minutes, it's hivemind and is more like seconds.>>27332281>Things get interesting>The words of the strange bandits, as well as a most intelligent anon, dissect the numerous hints and writings on the wall (figurative) that the EDE A.I. had left>Determine an imminent attack by our greatest foe, She who Hungers, a broodmother in the center of the Deep Swamp. She has corrupted our very hivemind, to an extent unkown>We barely fend them off, until a final sacrifice by Warlord Duelfists gives us a fighting chanceAnd now we're here.Also somewhere we forgot the incredible Heroic sacrifice of Ramona the bandit pilot, who it seems, isn't the posthumous hero we thought.
Rolled 73>>27332383forgot dice
>>27332281Thanks a lot!>>27332277Why do we ever bring them out where they can be destroyed?Do they not have a range of multiple kilometers and capable of traveling at least one kilometer behind our main forces without losing any efficiency?Can we use regular military as snipers and spotters until we have sufficient numbers of Tectus?What was up with that guy's wife? o.o
Rolled 46>>27332383We fixed up the base as is. Right now we can fix our damaged tanks or give the glowkrews some explosive weaponry.Actually the spiders were making out to be our greatest opportunist, much moreso than the fleshbeasts, but they were wiped out after the prototypes were finished and Richard is no where to be found>>27332390Haha, I love a wasted 1
Rolled 58>>27332390That feel when that 1 wasn't somehow attached to an action.>>27332332I need some consensus I just got bored waiting and did some writefaggotry while waiting.
Rolled 42>>27332390oh thank god that was discussion>>27332400they probably do not have that kind of range and if we did that they would be vulnerable.>>27332383im all for this
>>27332400>Why do we ever bring them out where they can be destroyed?>Do they not have a range of multiple kilometers and capable of traveling at least one kilometer behind our main forces without losing any efficiency?They do, but the issue is often the enemy is so fast and strong to swamp our forces and get to them anyway.>What was up with that guy's wife? She's a vashari, a special kind of mutant that's charismatic and sexy as fuck. Kinda like the Vizen, except not as hateful toward each other and other mutants
>>27332390>>We barely fend them off, until a final sacrifice by Warlord Duelfists gives us a fighting chanceWhy aren't we finding her nests/armies and starting to shell them right now, before they arrive?Have we started a serious guerilla campaign on her forces yet? (One month of constant guerilla assault is an absurd amount of damage)
Rolled 48>>27332458just go read the threads, you'll understand
>>27332458It's called deep swamp.It's scary. It's deadly. It's unscouted. It's deadly.Did I mention it's deadly?It's also pretty big, we dont' know where her base is. She also sorta tunneled under our base for months without us knowning, sent one of her own heroes too. We're still trying to figure out how to stop that.
Rolled 16>>27332444>>27332398>>27332383I can roll with this, heheh "roll"
Rolled 58>>273323831 flesh has been recycled by the Broodmother. At least some of it anyway. A lot of the monsters have mechanisms built into to greatly speed up the breakdown process.2 Defensive patches continue2 resource points left.Vehicles have been repaired.1 turn until Monster Mayhem is over. At the moment monsters are being held of by the Deathtrap and Defensive Network problem is their heavily damaged and its unknown how long they can hold.>>27332489It actually took her centuries. Swamp ground is hell combine with trying to avoid certain places, defenses, and other fun stuff it takes a long ass while.
Rolled 72>>27331670I'd like to know this to EDE. Have we been keeping eyes on our guys at the Ghouls via the hivemind or were they wiped out and we didn't notice?
Rolled 45>>27332545Month 63>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice2 resource points.>>27332558They got wiped out when the ghouls were besieged between the monsters and zombie hordes combined. Now however the ghouls are no longer pinned but their clammed up tight for Monster Mayhem.
Rolled 66>>27332489>>27332545we dont really have to worry about tunneling, lets also note to never start a serious tunneling plan because of how long it took the broodmother, it would probably take us longer
Rolled 62>>27332581i think this got enough votes>>27332383
Rolled 59>>27332477(This thread would be over by the time I'm done)>>27332489I realize that the deep swamp is horrifying - but the point of artillery is that we can actually stay a fair bit outside the swamp while shelling.Can I suggest shelling any area where we know she has inhabited tunnels, and get a few seismographs to try and figure out where they are?It seems pretty likely we'd be able to collapse them on top of the creatures inside.(Blatantly putting random suggestion in, just in case the roll is good).
Rolled 19>>27332581Gah, there go our only link to the outside. Well, except Ramona unless she's severed too.>>27332545That's some good knews. At least can be thankful there won't tunneling like that for a long time.
Rolled 8>>27332545>>27332581>>27332603oh nevermind that was last turn
Rolled 46>>27332607The deep swamp is big. I mean really really BIG.Even if we put our arty right up at the edge of the swamp we probably wouldn't be able to reach her.As for tunnels we no longer have to worry, we blew them up and it took her centuries to make them.
Rolled 98>>27332581>Basic 1With our new fleshbeasts, our troops moderately healed, and our tanks also repaired, let us give the final push and drive them out of our base perimeter. >Production 1Continue to repair defenses as they hold off the horde
Rolled 5>>27332607we destroyed ALL of her tunnel networks. im pretty sure that Warlord and GlowyJoe were in the middle of the Deep Swamp when that bomb went off. it completely fucked all tunneling efforts ever.also, with the collapse of the massive tunnel network and the explosion of the biggest bomb since the apoc (possibly ever) i propose that the entire deep swamp (or maybe just most of it) drops by about 20-30 feet. this would discourage monsters/ghouls/everything from leaving there, and it would allow a bit of drainage of some of our swamp making it less "vegetatous"this plan also makes a lot of sense that it would happen
Rolled 97>>27332698>drops by about 20-30 feet.You would think that, but actually upper ground can be really stable with all the trees and foilage holding it in places. My guess is that the water simply drains to fill the gaps.
Rolled 7>>27332611Romona has been severed yet somehow she turned out to be psionic so she can connect its just very troublesome. >>27332697Their outside our base perimeter thanks to the efforts of Warlord Duel Fist.
Rolled 71>>27332743upper ground? i dont recal him saying it was higher or lower than us.the roots and shit makes sense but thaqt was a really fucking big bomb, like really really really big. really big
Rolled 14>>27332698I said biggest LIVING bomb.
>>27332770Will they leave and go away in the next turn even if we don't do anything?
Rolled 48>>27332697>Basic 1With our new fleshbeasts, our troops moderately healed, and our tanks also repaired, let us drive our forces out to hold the perimiter>Production 1Continue to repair defenses as they hold off the horde
Rolled 14>>27332797well i still think its pretty likely. them old world scientists probably make some bag ass living bombs
>>27332785I meant the surface ground. And yeah, unless the bomb was big enough to create a crater even at the surface, the swamp could still hold it's integrity.
Rolled 72>>27332639Sounds like our next research project should be some kind of V2 rocket or biological flying bomb/flying creature with extremely corrosive acid for blood.If the hivemind being compromised is still an issue, could it be helped by disconnecting most of the individuals and reforming them into smaller groups that have contact by radio, with other words compartmentalize our Hivemind?(Groups that need to work quickly together would obviously be part of the same group)
Rolled 3>>27332830Overmind system already does that. Plus you only think its compromised hard to figure out for certain with current capabilities.
>>27332830Even if we have the range, the problem is we don't know where to strike nor could we cover a decent area and it's freakin rocket science. It'd be awesome, but we're biologist. and we definitly don't have the resources to make a dent.As for segregated hiveminds, that's how it used to be way in the begging until we developed the overmind to connect them all. The Prophet of fate can still do that, but this corruption could be complete and total to all hive mind members. Segregating might not help. We don't know much about it.
Rolled 3>>27332830no, we are not getting dictracted agiancould you please go back and read the threads now, or else i cant really take anything you say seriously.we are going to be delving deep into psionics and possibly fleshbeasts. and maybe them spiders to. makeing rockets that could actually do any kind of damage to the deep swamp is really really fucking hard. not to mention that she would know where we are shelling and just avoid those places with her forces
Rolled 62>>27332882yeah we already do that. Our hivemind system is fine how it is, we just need to research psionics so that our hivemind isnt fucking weak. plus, sis you see them bandits? they were fucking op as fuck
>>27332896Psionics and Recruitment efforts. Think outside combat and also to economy. Time and time again our heroes the EDE has been suggesting we fill our ranks with more converted Memor.Now that we know Broodmothers subliminal suggestion efforts are effective under the right groups, so long as they aren't experienced or too intelligent, we should go about looking for such groups. We can also further mutate her powers, and develop that suggestion serum as well.Basically we need more men.
Rolled 10>>27332930The hillbilly's don't sound too intelligent, but I bet there'd be some experienced members among them. We should find a way to filter out the likely and the unlikely candidates if we're to recruit them. Or anyone else.>inb4 they hilbillys out to be highly educated and verbose gentlemen simply with a taste for incest and simple clothing
Rolled 90>>27332800Yeah, what's gonna happen once monster mayhem ends?
Rolled 14>>27332980we will need alexis to get in with them, and i fucking love that.he said that they were a bit xenophobicand do we still have their 'guest' here?>>27332996we are going to go find Richard and Alexis
Rolled 23>>27332896i support a mix of these
Rolled 87>>27332930>>27332896hey guys, can we actually stick to our long term plan this time? can we not get distracted? like we always do
Rolled 8>>27332896Ah, you may be right.Still reading this thread to current events.The good thing about biological flying bombs is that they could spot for themselves and presumably have sufficient range to reach deep into the swamp. Essentially a target seeking missile (like Zerg Scourges, but able to divebomb) that you can release without a specific target. But if we already have a better plan I'll defer to your greater experience.
Rolled 41>>27333127the foilage of our swamp is to much to see though from the air, let alone the deep swamp. not only that but that place if filled with TITAN class monsters that do not necessarily serve her but she can call upon them at will
Rolled 75>>27332896>>27333097Actually, how about we Basic 1I propose we develop a special class of Mulim. Devote even moreso to psionic detection?The removal of their eyes and ears to decrease their sensory awareness, the blind Mulim increase their mental awareness. This allows them to see and hear the world through pure psionics. Like being able to tell what a card is before you flip it, they see the world through their minds not their bodies. They would be able mentally see the very links that telepathically bond hivemind members. We can catch the links that connect any of us to the Deep Swamp, and sever them. Also they'd be powerful at other types of psionics, maybe even individual telekensis.Surely Prophet and the Broodmother can figure out a way.
Rolled 30>>27333164ehh its a good side project, theyll be like the psionic tectuswe just need to do some pure research for now, have the Prophet research those crystals, research anything that may aid in psionics
Rolled 2>>27333113We're just waiting for OP, unless he's waiting for a consens.We have many long term plans, mutation, population growth, even securing the swamp. What's more important right now is the immediate issues and how we fix them.
Rolled 28>>27333191after monster madness is over we dont really have any immediate issuesso im going to prioritize research into psionics and finding Richard and Alexis
Rolled 65>>27333215as immediate term goalsand also, does the hivemind know that Ramona survived?
Rolled 13>>27333161Could they not easily be made just as agile as swamp-living avians, enabling them to fly through the swamp itself?Will go back to reading this thread and not suggest any actual courses of action until I understand the current predicament in more detail.
Rolled 90>>27333215Hmm, im pretty sure the fact that Torg wresteled down giggles and made him EXPLOSIVE will greatly increase Alexis' survival chanceand did Torg ride Dino Fluff into battle alongside Then Warlord in the beginning? cause i think her did
Rolled 45>>27333215I agree. Psionic mutations, psionic artifacts, psionic abilites. All very important, and all likely to help us find Richard and Alexis.Is there a reason we don't just ask our heroes to wear tracking devices or something?
Rolled 90>>27333259they would get eaten faster than you could blink, the explosion would only provide a bit of spice to whatever monster did it
Rolled 26>>27333215If the monster madness is still the immediate issue, (assuming they're not actually assaulting the whole month long) what prevents us from spotting concentrations or nests and then shelling them inbetween assaults?
>>27333304Mostly trees.And the fact that there are probably more nest out there than we even have bullets.
>>27333164Octor and mulic say hello.
Rolled 36>>27333304the 1 action per month thing, that and we probably lost most of our boom towns and >>27333319 and if we did they would all imediatly charge us. and after EDE finishes writing it will no longer be a "problem" per say, but the level of monsters will be higher. but we've dealt with that before
What is consensus?
Rolled 75>>27333346the Prophet will work closely with them on the psionic research.i think that one shoulda been a given
>>27333346Wait, the Octor and Mulim can already do those things?
Rolled 63>>27333372>>27332806i support thisits kinda the general opnion for the last of the monster madness
>>27333394Mulic are EXTREMELY sensitive to psionics and their also attracted to it. While Octor senses are fucking weird senses...especially considering they don't seem to have any eyes or ears and shit yet still manage to move around amazingly well. Combine with their disturbing amount of toughness despite not being a tank class mutant.
Rolled 85>>27333394no, but that are more psionicaly sensitive than the memor. they shall be working very closely with The Prophet in all matters of psionics
>>27333414Wel they're already cleared from our outer perimeter. The issue is if they'll go away after monster madness. Which they might not.Instead of perimiter clearing, 'et's try psionic research.Experimenting with the psionic crystals>>27333164Begin prepping for advanced Mulic mutation
>>27333414That had already largely occurred last turn. >>27333450Mulic are sensitive to psionics forcing them to rely upon it completely is not recommended.
>>27333442>>27333438I get that, just wondering if there was a way we can mutate/reserach them even further like telekinesis and literally being able to see the telepathic bonds and wavelengths that may or may not be in the direction of the deepswamp
Rolled 99>>27333438hmm, the Prophet should have a retinue of mulic and octor that help him in all maters psionic.the octor can go on the battle field to use battle psionics>>27333450no, last time monster madness nearly fucked us over. we are not underestimating them agian, he already gave warnings that the defenses may fall. plus we want to keep those defenses
Rolled 67>>27333463Damn.Well, at least the crystals then. Anything we have had sitting on our shelf for too long.We've had guests for months now why should it take a single turn to have a conversation with any of them?Can we talk to the hillbilly guest at least?
Rolled 5>>27333491see this>>27333486lets not make our losses any worse
Rolled 29>>27333486So generally cleanup of the nests? I'm cool with that.>Basic 1With our new fleshbeasts, our troops moderately healed, and our tanks also repaired, let us give the final push and drive them out of our immediate base vicinity and generally thin their ranks>Production 1Continue to repair defenses in case we need them
Rolled 52>>27333491I have been asking for a conversation with them since we got them and still nothing.>>27333414im with this guy
>>27333491Well yeah you had two of them in fact Billy Bob and Bobby 2. They were good friends of Alexis at this point in time.
Rolled 35>>27333517did you see the last time we dealt with MM?lets just drive them from our base for now and kill any that come, the ghouls will take care of the rest
Rolled 71>>27333486Getting the feeling that the mulic and octor assistance will be extremely beneficial.
Rolled 77>>27333552Our base is clean of monsters already. The issue is the nests of them that surround our immediate base
Rolled 94>>27333557yes mulic/octor+Prophet= psionic masteryeventauly, but they should fast track things
Rolled 31>>27333517Support going on the offensive against the nests as well. Every monster we kill sleeping is one less to throw itself against our defenses.
Rolled 98>>27333578they are still assaulting our perimiter and our defenses are about to failmonsters dont just plop down and make a nest right outside the wall, they go find a hole and dig it deeper and make their nests there. which is why monsters attack us in the first place it to take our place as there nest. (im probably just talking out of my ass but that is no doubt 1 of the reasons)
>>27333600Just the nearby ones that threaten our base, we're not going out deep into the fray.
>>27333600...You do realize its still Monster Mayhem right?Anyway can someone please tell me what the hell consensus is.
Rolled 28>>27333600were you here the last time that we did that? it didnt work, not only that but our forces have been DECIMATED the ghouls will take care oif all of this for us
Rolled 4>>27333651this is the consensus>>27333414please dont listen to the idiots that are saying we attack in the middle of monster madness. please. and with severaly crippled forces to boot
>>27333636The generall idea is "make our base safe".So whatever that means, the differences are trivial. What we're not going to do is make uncessary risk, but we are going to stop the attacks where we can and where it is reasonable to do so.That is the consensus
Rolled 54So, what options do we actually have?
Rolled 87>>27333686were you here the last time? they attack during monster madness, then the monster levels are elevated for a bit, then they settle down. the ghouls will literaly feast upon all of the monsters a soon as it is over.monsters dont attack our base unless it is monster madness
>>27333698Month 63>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice
>>27333718And it is still during monster madness. And we are still under attack.This is why we must stop their attack until it is over.
>>27333724>>27333698it is this>>27333414it is smart, it is practical, it doesnt put us outside our base during monster madness. it has almost no risk unless someone critfails
Rolled 18>>27333673Only supporting that in the assumption that "attacking" really means "send out a few scouts and fire artillery on nests and concentrations", only really risking a few dozen scouts and that the attack starts a bit earlier (if the monsters are intelligent enough to track the source of the explosions).If this is not the case, I retract my support and put it with >>27332806.
>>27333755yeah, stop them from attacking, do not attack them. that is just stupid, especialy when the ghouls will do it for us
>>27333773artillery is no doubt already being used on the attackers right now. if it isnt then we make sure it is and keep up a constant barrage until we make sure there isnt a monster in sight of our base. in sight of does not mean that we start attacking their nests
>>27333777>Stoppng an attack>Without attacking themOh so I guess we can just sit on our butts and don't have to lift a finger then?What part of "stop there attack where it is reasonable to do so" and "don't take any unecessary risk" do you not comprehend. No one here is saying we send a force outside of the base. We're just trying to kill the damned monsters at our gates. And to do that we must attack the monsters at our gates.
Rolled 73>>27333777>yeah, stop them from attacking, do not attack them. So what we just yell at them?"Hey monsters! Stop attacking us k? Thanks!"
Rolled 6>>27333811that is stupid, the only way we can take not take any unnescary risks is by staying the fuck inside of our base and supporting our defenses with artillery and sniper/snipetank fire
Rolled 48>>27333827defending and attacking are 2 different thing believe it or notto defend: to kill those who attack youto attack: to go try and kill things that are not currently attacking you
>>27333836>staying inside supporting our defenses with artillery and sniper/snipetank fireThat's what I'm getting at. Attacking them from within our base.You're the one here whos against attacking them at all.
>>27332806Our forces have been deployed to the outer perimeter to hold the line. A lot of stuff is damaged and its unknown if we can even repair some of it thanks to the tech levels.Defenses partially repaired.Monster Mayhem has ended for now. We meanwhile have received a message from the ghouls wondering when we are going to take back our the monstrous mad scientist that is Richard. Apparently he has been screaming about something something SCIENCE. While launching entropic viral bombs everywhere. Every time the swamp adjusted to it and he would tinker with just enough to make it effective once. Apparently he has been causing some serious havoc. Month 63>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice
>>27333857You do realize any form of self defense involves attacking someone. Whether you are doing it from the safety of walls and lobbing shells at them, you actively attacking them from cover and trying to kill them.The only time you're not attacking is when you do nothing.
Rolled 51>>27333876>>27332806i proposed this idea
>>27333916Yes holding out the perimeter. Which means attacking the monsters who are at our perimeter in order to defend our base.It's not a hard concept.
Rolled 42>>27333888Damn it meant month 64Anyway you got 1 resource point left.Forgot to mention that Alexis has returned to us as well along with Giggles. Markus's wife is visiting the broodmother and being a bad influence. She has already tried to get her intoxicated but failed. This time she is planning to try some of the REAL good stuff.
Rolled 55>>27333911implied meaning, implied. everythiing is implied>>27333888we go and get Richard now, we also keep an eye out for Alexis while we are out there
Rolled 69>>27333876This.It can't possibly take the entire month to mop up the rest of the monsters within line of sight of our base. All that was suggested is that we send out a few scouts to spot new targets before they attack again.We still have a production action to repair our defenses, don't we?If this isn't possible without risking more than the scouts, use action to repair defenses and secure perimeter as >>27332806 suggests.
Rolled 77>>27333941well lets have a converation with her about marcus and if he is coming back. also does he hivemind know that Ramona is still alive?
Rolled 17>>27333964he already updated, lets move on1 base action per month, lets no argue with the DMs rulesi vote these>>27333968>>27333945and we have the Prophet and his mulic/octor retinue research the crystals as stated earlier
Rolled 38>>27333941ok we grab Richard and go have a talk with Markus's wife and the broodmother
>>27334003>>27333945Is it safe to step outside the base yet?
Rolled 83>>27334003and research crystals, having a conversation shouldnt take an action
Rolled 56>>27333968The Hivemind knows as Markus's wife informed the broodmother. Apparently the two of them sorta got wasted and had a fling. REALLY wish my mics didn't pick up the details of that...As for conversation wise you gotta ask luckily she is slightly tipsy. >>27334016It doesn't.
Rolled 3>>27334009yes, the monsters are no longer on the offensive. now they will just guard their territory (mostly)but we have to go get Richard either way
>>27334016good thing to add I agree with this
>>27334035Then this means>Basic 1Send out a team of tectus, strongarms, and support vechs to see what's Richard up to and get him to come back>ProductionResearch crystalsOtherConversation with Miss Mox
Rolled 79>>27334035>MilitaryGo get Richard>BasicResearch special Crystalsextra talk to marcuses wife about him maybe coming back (and other shit)
Rolled 83well it looks like we have consensus this time
>>27334016>>27334091we already got an 86 lets not tempt the dice godsplus its first three anyway
>>27334064We lost the military move with Warlord.We only have basic 1 and production.Eh, just semantics
Rolled 93>>27334062Conversation with Miss Mox doesn't really tell me anything you know...
>>27334113shhhh, leave it to EDE
>>27334122? just ask her about wether he will comeback or not?
Rolled 29>>27334064>>27334062So, we have a basic and a military/production action?
Rolled 29>>27334064You can only do one of them thanks to losing the Warlord.
>>27334144>>27334122Or if he's made any. . .interesting discoveries.Yep, it would be nice if he found something that would be of interest to us. Like one of our members.
>>27334153shhhh, lets not talk about itEDE will decide either wya>>27334161nevermind, well lets go get Richard. shouldnt he add an extra researching turn or something?
>>27334161>>27334174Yeah, he was our scientist. Losing our engineer and our military tactician was bad enough.Without the brain mutants ( and that'll take forever) we can't even subsitute any of our heroes intelligenceSend a force to Richard
>>27334174total pop is 1860 right nowlets be sure to put the word out we are accepting conversions, though i dobut we will get many
>>27334208Aw c'mon, who would want to join NIGHTMARE INCARNATE SUPREME?We have great benefits
Rolled 41>>27334144You are no longer good for business so no he wont. After all Nightmare Fuel rep is good for business Nightmare Incarnate is not. The negatives outweighed the positives that is why he left. >>27334169Discoveries? Certainly he has many deals going on.
Rolled 47>>27334227You actually have terrible benefits ESPECIALLY for pilots/drivers. Its not good to be a member.
Rolled 85>>27334194If the brain mutants ever gets done, hopefully, maybe we can get groups of them to mimic the heroes thought patterns.
>>27334264Sshhhhh EDEHow's propaganda supposed to work if you keep telling the truth?
>>27334229im pretty sure Ramona will come back, right?...
>>27334291ever heard of a hivemind?then again they arent in the hivemind so it may work
>>27334299yeah we do its is this>>27332930>>27332896>>27333164i believe that answers your living missile plan to. it just wont work.
Rolled 56Do we have any set long-term goals now? If so, will defer to other players' greater experience.If not, I propose developing aforementioned living missiles/creatures as our basic action to give us some extreme long-range capability.
>>27334299At 100,000, we can begin a national border program involving expanses of burnt no mans land patrolled by SST's, ST's, Tectus, and shitloads of spiders and spiderwebs. We can also begin to drain the local swamp, following proper research into swamp construction, and open up farmland and lebensraum.At 400,000 the secondary border can be created.
>>27334334this to this>>27334336why delete for a simple question mark?if we want missiletech we can just buy it from marcus, and yes we will be able to control its flight that is basic stuff
>>27334336>>27334356But that's an extreme long-term project though.
Rolled 39>>27334334It doesn't actually say anything about why developing the missiles themselves would be a bad idea, but it's irrelevant for now.Let's get some recruiting and psionics going!
>>27334356i advise making the borders so that encorporates the entire north swamp as that is only a part of it. we should also have bases along the borders to east/west/citybut that is super long term shi
>>27334382Not before we get Richard back.We should also remember to improve our recruitment sciences.
>>27334382oh shit my bad, here you go>>27333282>>27333319>>27334362
Rolled 12>>27334362Because I forgot to think and hoped noone had started replying yet. Won't do that again.>if we want missiletech we can just buy it from marcus, and yes we will be able to control itWill those be able to pick their own targets (being 'fire and forget's) and be manufactured en-masse (assuming we can still grind out biological beings in great numbers on the cheap) by us, though?
>>27334404psionics first, cause those bandits were OP as fuckwe get Richard back,t hen we do psionics, then we do fleshbeast/recruitment/othershitbe sure to send Alexis with the force to retreive Richard
>>27334460it wont be that simple, and we dont need fire and forget because the hivemind will decide the best target for them to go to anyway. plus we dont want our missiles having thoughts
>>27334470Yeah, Alexis is kinda a must for this mission since she has a lot of experience with monsters>>27334493we got her and Giggles back already
>>27334493Oh wait, nvm I forget she returned. Send er
In any case we sent our forces to try to find Richard. We had to take out some big monsters but it wasn't too bad...until we found Richard anyway. Who had somehow built grey goo and viral bombs/missiles that were getting thrown everywhere. With him screaming about how you can't mess with SCIENCE. But he came back....but not before lobbing sending his forces on a suicide mission into the deep swamp.Month 65>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choicepop increase.1600 memor400 strong Arm400 Mulic300 Ortor100 TectusWe got our second action of our choice back.
Rolled 75>>27334488Why would long-range missiles with thoughts on the grade of animals (controlled the same way the other biological monstrosities are - not part of the hivemind) be bad? And the problem with the hivemind deciding was that it needed spotters, which sentient ones would not, no more than an attack-dog would.But I'll drop this for now. We're mostly waiting for E.D.E, I believe?
Rolled 23>>27334536Certainly you mean Richard.Basic 1Richard salvages what research he might have lost in the attack. Namely his spiders.Basic 2Prophet researches CrystalsProductionWhatever, I leave that to you guys
>>27334536yeeeeah, alright>Basic 1Research dem Special Crystals with the Prophet and his mulic/octor retinue>Basic 2Have the Broodmother start collecting every bit of dead monster flesh and everything for fleshbeast production>Production>>27334565lol, marcus
Rolled 11>>27334565Wait, grey goo as in some unidentified goo that is grey, or as in Grey Goo consisting of self-replicating nanobots that will devour the planet within days if not contained?
Rolled 10>>27334600>>27334585Broodmother collection can go on our productionBasic 1>Research dem Special Crystals with the Prophet and his mulic/octor retinueBasic 2>Richard recollects what he might have lost in the attack. Especially the spidersProduction>Broodmother starts gathering flesh for the fleshbeasts and other uses
>>27334585>>27334600can we use our production action to make more spiders? Richard is deffinatly the kind of guy who would memorize the plans to his things and should have zero trouble (if we dont still have the plans somewhere) cranking some out
>>27334607Grey Goo of self replicating nanobots. Suffice to say Richard was REALLY fucking pissed. As it turns out the only thing that makes angry is if you get in the way of/mess with SCIENCE. In which case run for a life as he will go full War criminal Mad scientist on your ass.
>>27334607>implying Richard can ever make a competent Doomsday virus/nanobot I fucking dare him to
Rolled 40>>27334627this if we canif not we do this>>27334638if not then just do spiders
>>27334638Our factories can only produce pure mechanics. Spiders are part cyborg.Don't worry though they multiply like crazy, especiall with all our vehicle wrecks still around and plenty of dead giant monsters to eat and lay eggs in.
Rolled 89>>27334655lets not tempt him
>>27334655That is because you never got him angry or got him fucking SAMPLES. Or let him go all out. You kept on fucking with him so he took it out on the bandits who were having a hard time reaching your base cause of everything. Thus putting him into a grumpy mood.
Rolled 61>>27334653Well shite.So, our new priority is quarantining that grey goo, since if even a single particle escapes, the planet is pretty much doomed?Of course, knowing him they probably have some fundamentally flawed weakness like oxygen or H2O
Rolled 1>>27334702Well, what samples does he want?He makes the spiders, we'll cocoon and drag all the live specimens he wants back home with the help of our military forces of course.A hundred webby's cocoon a big old beasty, we get an ST or and SST to drag it back home.
Rolled 34>>27334680no we are going to scavenge our vehicle wrecks ourselves for res to research with>>27334702wait... did he just single handedly wipe out the marauder bandits? or were they some other bandits?and we kept trying to get him samples, the samples just wouldnt cooperate
Rolled 5>>27334732It's such a lovely feeling to see a 1 wasted on a discussion. Don't you agree.
Rolled 36>>27334724nah that is She Who Hungers' problem for now>>27334732that is a really good idea, thank god it was just a discussion
Rolled 60>>27334739>no we are going to scavenge our vehicle wrecks ourselves for res to research withThe spiders can do that to. The fixers cut them up into smaller manageable pieces and drag them back to the factories.And I'm sure there's plenty of other wrecks out in the swamp we haven't touched for years gathering rust too.
Rolled 78>>27334680So, can we get them to produce the prostheses for more spiders?Or heck, can we set them on producing simple anti-tank or at least high-powered infantry-portable weapons like anti-materiel rifles for the kind of enemies we're facing right now?
>>27334724No what ended happening was a all out free for all between swamp life and grey goo. It ended in a draw so Richard just made MORE. >>27334732He specializes in the inhumane/unethical research. You kept screwing with in that regard except for the bandits.
Rolled 49>>27334772yeah that is a good idea, lets get Richard on making scavenging spiders
Rolled 38>>27334784you have the bad habit of not anwsering my very important questionsthis>>27334739
Rolled 63>>27334702I'm gonna go ahead and suggest we start treating Richard with some serious respect, since he's obviously among the greatest minds of this generation. Apologize for how we treated him, get him what he wants, and get out of his way.
>>27334812Lets just say there are some now empty zombie hives and some big craters in the deep swamp. Also I wouldn't go into the wastelands any time soon.
Rolled 82>>27334784How does one specialize in "inhumane/unethical" research?Besides we're not even human nor are we a very ethical people. We'll given him all the humans he wants. We can't even have any qualms with whatever he could possibly research so long as it's not on a Memor citizen or isn't risky.Whatever he wants, he gets.
Rolled 11>>27334836>this generationlol'd he is AGES old, but yeah i agree. lets set him on the spider thing and just let him run with it. lets not even vote for it anymore>>27334844good to know, lets just build our rep even more. make those marauders scared to come back. and lets inhabit those bases
>>27334856...your not giving him MUTANTS including MEMOR to have fun with. Also you never sent out forces to really acquire interesting samples for a while.
Rolled 75>>27334877All we need is for him to finish the 2remaining spider designs, and then he doesn't have to touch a single spider ever again. They'll multiply good enough without him.>Jumper - Purely combat. Equipped with an assortment of poisons and a fang. Noted for it's ability to really fuckng jump and run. Can also dig itself a nice trapdoor to lure stuff in>Feelers - Detectors, sensors, radars, and ann assortment of eyes all meant to give it sight and sound and sense of all around it. Can also lay mines and explosives in the path of enemies or on the sides and underbellys of vehicles
Rolled 66>>27334897yeah, but the spiders will change that. lets tell him that once he get the spiders going he can use them to aquire as many samples as he wants. that will light a fire under his ass
Rolled 53>>27334897Can we at least segregate the Memor from the mind to prevent any unnecessary pain to the collective? I'm sure we can have some volunteers using the loyalty bonus.Is like 20 reasonable?>Also you never sent out forces to really acquire interesting samples for a while.We'll remedy that right away, and if he builds us spiders we'll only get them all the faster.
Rolled 16>>27334930This, OH GOD so much thisbasically give him the opportunity for SO MUCH SCIENCE
Rolled 91>>27334856He made capital-letters Grey Goo.I'd say that's about as risky as it gets.Not sure whether to give him what he wants so he doesn't hurt us and hope really hard he never ever creates anything like that again on the only planet we have, or try to kill him to make really sure he can't.Doesn't get much more unethical than tossing Grey Goo around on inhabited planets.The bandits are veritable saints compared to him.
Rolled 65>>27334930We'll send out some forces to gather those resources ASAP while he works on the spiders. Give him an incentive.
Rolled 47>>27334956WE. ARE. NOT. KILLING. HIM.dont even think about it, for he will know. plus he controls his grey goo
Rolled 17>>27334956He's not suicidal. He wouldn't make something that would kill himself wihtout good reason.Besides, the swamp is resiliant as fuck. The stuff he made it healed over every time.Besides if things get bad, we hide in the bunkers until the whole thing blows over. No more swamp, no more problem.
Rolled 17>>27334988thats not how grey goo works. but i agree with youGrey Goo will eat the entire world. down to the core, EVERYTHING
So anyway what is the exact consensus. I heard something about spiders anything else?
Rolled 76>>27335084Basic 1>While Richard finishes Spider models and research, we pledge him the samples he wants. We will give him up to 50 segregated from the mind mutants this turn if he desires. Tell us what samples he wants and next turn we will search for themBasic 2>Prophet and the octor/mulic research the crystal psionic artifactsProductionBroodmother begins to collect and assimilate flesh of killed monsters
Rolled 91>>27335132Rolling for theseespecialy that "light a fire under Richards ass" part
>>27335162ok, no one else roll
Rolled 35>>27335084I got the impression we were giving him everything he wanted, and politely asking him to help us with the spiders so we can help him even faster.So:Basic1: Give Richard whatever he wants and ask him to help us give him whatever he wants faster by giving us a hand with the spiders.Basic2: NullProduction: NullI'd suggest starting to produce infantry weaponry that can hurt tank-strength enemies (like rocket launchers for grunts and anti-materiel rifles for snipers) with our production action, so that our infantry can have a greater impact in battles against monsters and tanks.
>>27335177>nullnoBasic 2 is psionics researchProduction is given to Broodmother
>>27335177Psionics, psionics before everythingluckily we dont have to choose so i say we use this roll>>27335162on this>>27335133
>>27335230>>27335233Ye, changed my vote to:>>27335196when I saw it.
>>27335132Psy crystal research.Not enough resources for research.Richard being in a surprisingly good mood constructed both types of the remaining spiders. Whistling and heading off to the bionics labs printed out some new parts and took his fresh new samples for some SCIENCE...(RICHARD will be busy for 5 turns). It is recommended you don't access his labs until then. In addition the Broodmother has also gone to assist him in his operations. The Prophet meanwhile is rather tired from having to block out the screams so he is quite tired. Luckily he can still do some things thanks to the relief that Clora'Zel is helping to provide.Month 66>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choiceWe are out of resources.
>>27335310we scavenge all our destroyed vehicles from the last battle and i say we break down 40/44 of those swamp walkers since they are just collecting dust. you really need to tell us those things, or at least post an updated res/forces list more [spoiler/]
>>27335359The walkers and ST's were destroyed in the attack to the last.Only the SST's survived.
>>27335359You already scrapped them a while ago. Only got like 4 left.
Rolled 74>>27335310>We are out of resources.And that's bad. Not for long though.Basic 1Send out our usual gathering crews, along with a support team of spiders. The fixers cut down on the wrecks, the webbers grab up any opportunistic monsters for flesh, and the mother's feast. Jumpers for support, and feelers to detect for monsters and enemies. Let's put them to the test.Basic 2I don't know about this one. All our heroes are busy. What say you guys?ProductionNothing. Not enough resources
>>27335397we never actualy did, everyone vetoed the idea except me. unless it was in this thread.then we still harvest EVERY wreck from the battle
>>27335310Also can we get an update on the spider pop?
>>27335427Basic 1Send out our usual gathering crews, along with a support team of spiders. The fixers cut down on the wrecks, the webbers grab up any opportunistic monsters for flesh, and the mother's feast. Jumpers for support, and feelers to detect for monsters and enemies. Let's put them to the test.Basic 2have The Prophet psionicaly talk/link with the mulic/octor about everything psionic and have them prepared for what exactly they are going to research.ProductionNothing. Not enough resources
>>27335310Proposition:Base1: G, being really frickin' careful while scavenging the battlefield within sight of our base, should be a goldmine of salvage right now.Base 2: H, try to fully restore base to full conditions. If resources are needed, divert them directly from scavenging operations.Production: Psionic reserch, if resources can be diverted directly from scavenging. If not, C. If that also requires resources, D: Perform social experiments in Positive Psychology to try to maximize the productivity and happiness of our society.
>>27335446You have to build the first gens. After that they take over.
>>27335427This I can go with.I've had too many 1's in this thread though, not testing my luck with the dice gods
>>27335454you cant use production for any of those thingsswap production and Basic 2, then your good
Rolled 89>>27335456Well the 1st gens should obviosly be the Mothers and the Fixers because their the best at multiplying (all though all of them can I presume).>>27335453This unless the prophet is tired.If we don't have the spiders, we don't even have the resources to construct the 1st gen so I'm willing to take a normal scavenging run this turn too.
>>27335498talking/shareing thoughts isnt hard. and he has an entire month to do it.lets also have a conversation with him about why he is tired. wouldnt want to ignore a hint now would we?
Rolled 42In other news Torg has shown up again. Saying he has seen the biggest boom and feels inspired. The ghouls meanwhile are once more mobilizing their forces. It seems those zombies are entrenched insanely deep.
Rolled 67>>27335498Okay so that meansBasic 1>Scavenge run, with existing spiders to multiply if have. If not, just a normal scavenge run.Basic 2>try to fully restore base to full conditions. If resources are needed, divert them directly from scavenging operations.ProductionNull
>>27335498even with normal scavenging we can still use the wrecks from when we got fucked>>27335545i dont remember Torg leaving, i assume he was riding Dino Fluff
Rolled 84>>27335540He is tired because he has to block out the screams from the rest of the Hivemind.
>>27335540He's blocking out the agonized screams and pain of about 50 of our own members. Asking won't hurt, but it should be obvious why he's exhausted.
>>27335554noOkay so that meansBasic 1>Scavenge run, with existing spiders to multiply if have. If not, just a normal scavenge run.Basic 2Have The Prophet psionicaly talk/link with the mulic/octor about everything psionic and have them prepared for what exactly they are going to research.Production>try to fully restore base to full conditions. If resources are needed, divert them directly from scavenging operations.
>>27335453Add the social experiments (as an 'if psionic isn't feasible/possible clause) and reparations in production from >>27335454 and I'm in.
>>27335564what screams? when did we agree to that?>>27335592yeah but he has his production and basic switched
>>27335561That's part of it and goes without saying.>>27335545"And Just tell us Torg, what is this BIG BOOM you have seen? Certainly it is not bigger than our glorious hero's Warlord Dualfists sacrifice, rest his mind."
>>27335592 here.Could also get behind >>27335579 but still suggest the social experiments in case we can't do psychic, just so we won't waste an action.
>>27335579see >>27335564The prophet is too tired to deal with that shit nor should we press him. OP is giving us another hint.
>>27335623i think we shouldnt stress The Prophet, how about we have him brainstorm for both? its not hard but it may give us ideas
>>27335609We agreed to give Richard 50 segregated mutants of the mind for research for his experiment >>27335310We're supporting him all the way
>>27335633brainstorming is hard>>27335658why in the fuck didnt we cut them off manualy like marcus did himself? woulda saved us a problem
>>27335680brainstorming isnt hardthats what i meant to say
Rolled 20That feel when people are voting for actions but not rolling for them. Most annoying also what is the consensus.
>>27335697Why don't you ask the prophet?
Rolled 64>>27335680He can't have all of them severed depending on whatever he is doing.
>>27335680>why in the fuck didnt we cut them off manualy like marcus did himself? That's part of the experiment I guess. Or perhaps permanently severing 50 mutants is difficult.
Rolled 65>>27335700This one seems to have the most votes right now:>>27335579
Rolled 50>>27335700Definitly the 1st basic action is a scavenging run with or without spiders if we have them.2nd basic action is contested. I leave that to whoever.We cannot use the production move without resouresAlso >>27335611 What did Torg see?
Rolled 22>>27335720>>27335700this seems to be consensus>>27335540>>27335554>>27335453
>>27335808i can go with an 83no more dice for me
Rolled 41Dat when it's early for the usual time but the threads near the bottom of the catalog
>>27335892its not early, its late, very late
Rolled 238 resources acquired from our scavenging from the wrecks of our defenses.Accomplished some psionic research on the spy crystals got two varieties. The basic one just lights up when it comes near the presence of it while the other stores the energy.Repair wise we did what we could problem is we just don't have the tech to repair the more complicated/sensitive stuff. 2 resources used.Month 65>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice
Rolled 88>>27335947And I forgot to state its now month 67
>>27335947ok, so now we research those crystals again with the prophet and mulic/octoryou will tell us when they're burnt out right?
>>27335912Depends where you're from.The past threads usually start around 5-7 est time and end at 3-4.
Rolled 56>>27335971The prophet was the one who researched them. Broodmother relieved him allowing him to take a break and research.
Rolled 51>>27336025Okay so that meansBasic 1>Scavenge run, with existing spiders to multiply if have. If not, just a normal scavenge run.Basic 2>Have The Prophet psionicaly link with the mulic/octor and do intense research on the crystalsProduction>Build more spiders, of every type>>27336025you said that the broodmother went into the swamp with richard
>>27336013Technically a single mother should be enough to suffice for now. She gets fed by the spiders, lays her eggs, and carries hundreds of little ones on her back while the fixers helps them grow. We should help them set up several nests around the base to collect nutural resources and breed.Good thing these guys are mechanical and loyal.
Rolled 34>>27336051i can roll with this that will never get old. heheh 'roll'
Rolled 33>>27336072there are bio/cyborg actuallyand we still need to build some to start. and isnt each spider self replicating? or is it just the mothers? it was never specified but i think it was each one with how the containment incident went down
>>27335947>The basic one just lights up when it comes near the presence of it while the other stores the energy.I'm wondering the potential applications for this.Certainly the first can be used for psionic detection, glowing brighter and brighter the closer to a source we get.The second one is more interesting. How is psionic energy stored?Can it be used like a bomb? Explosive telikinetic force? Some kind of EMP like device that scrambles the minds of other psionic users?Or like a battery? Storing psionic energy and giving whoever has it a quick boost of power?More research is needed
Rolled 85>>27336113They are self replicating mothers just speed up the process.
>>27336113They are all self replicating, however the Fixer specializes in construction, while the Mother is the best at it being able to make many many more of all the different kinds at the same time.
>>27336129Maybe like a literal crystal ball?We leave a marble sized on behind, the mind can use it to look around.
Rolled 88>>27336131ah, thats nifty lets be sure to lets them go wild in the swamp. do they need biotic and metalic materials to replicate? or just one or the other?>>27336129lets just leave it up to The Prophet
Rolled 76>>27336160we shall see, since we dont know its properties yet we cant brainstorm yet
Rolled 53>>27336162They need both.
>>27336162They're basically like Richards original cyborgs. They need metal and flesh.The Webby ones can eat flesh and metal and turn it into a superstrong chemical alloy.
Rolled 36>>27336051Yep.Basic 1>Scavenge run, with existing spiders to multiply if have. If not, just a normal scavenge run.Basic 2>So long as he's fine with it, have The Prophet psionicaly link with the mulic/octor and do intense research on the crystalsProduction>Build more spiders, of every type
Rolled 26>>27336217>>27336080>34>36Step it up anons
Rolled 78>>27336198>>27336189so it will take a concerted effort to reproduce, but it should go quickly.are they linked into the Hivemind?
Rolled 13>>27336241we had much better rolls earlier, it is far past 3 rolls and consensus has been achieved. just waiting on EDE now
Rolled 29>>27336251They're linked to Richard and the A.I.'s computer network. Or however he automates the cyborgs
Rolled 78>>27336251Negative.Our forces got attacked while scavenging they still brought back materials though.4 resources acquired.Research slowed a bit on the crystals but he found some that could store a charge and release it slowly as light. Spiders have been constructed.Month 67>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice
Rolled 84>>27336305i'd still like EDEs anwser. and we need to get them into the hivemind.to keep Richard from getting op, and increase worktogetheratry
Rolled 17>>27336349rinse and repeat, but instead of building spiders we plant the spiders in the swamp around our base and let them build nests and replicate
Rolled 53>>27336427Basic 1>plant our spiders in the swamp around our base to set up nests/webs and replicateBasic 2>So long as he's fine with it, have The Prophet psionicaly link with the mulic/octor and do intense research on the crystalsProduction>SSTs?
Rolled 18>>27336398User...the spiders would of worked against non Deep Swamp monsters. Problem is deep swamp monsters are beginning to migrate thanks to lower level food chain tier food moving away. As well as nukes going off and disease. Underground meanwhile...not even Alexis likes whats down there. Their still effective right now but I can't say how long it will stay that way.
Rolled 82>>27336377The fleshbeasts keep the cyborgs in check, and vice versa.We're not sure if cyborgs can be integrated, or it it's cost effective.>>273363493 more turns until Richard and Broodmother come out with whatever their concocting (it's still quite amazing to see such mortal enemies who once fought for centuries work in harmony).>>27336398Oh come now, let's have a little variety.Basic 1Assist the spiders in setting up nests around the base, almost like a vanguard to detect and deter enemy presenceBasic 2I say we make multiple envoys. Let's keep tabs with the powers that be. Some to the ghouls, and we should send a crew to the Hillbilly's while asking BillyBob and his friend how do we communicate with them.ProductionSuggest we begin restoring our vehicular force as well. 25 ST's for emergency base defense (who knows if we'll need them in a few turns eh?)
Rolled 51>>27336398instaed of this, im changing it to this>>27336435
Rolled 73>>27336446Right people are forgetting that they are NOT the military. They are a supplement. A support. They do not make the bulk of our forces.They're basically canon fodder really, except more useful than the fleshbeasts in multiplication, resource gathering, slowing the enemy, and captures.
Rolled 21>>27336452well i say we have a conversation with the HillyBilly envoybut lets send the envoys next turn
Rolled 80>>27336476You are severely underestimating fleshbeast strains. Which are amazingly numerous.
Rolled 75>>27336435>>27336452Basic 1>Plant our spiders in the swamp around our base to set up nests/webs and replicateBasic 2>So long as he's fine with it, have The Prophet psionicaly link with the mulic/octor and do intense research on the crystalsProduction>STs?Extra: have a conversation with the HillyBillys
>>27336476I know. It's just gonna be awesome. Think of it like this. A behemoth walks around, while dozens of mothers rest on it, and on them and the behemoth thousands of spiders of all sorts.When a pesky enemy or a monster makes so much as a move against the behemoth BAM, thousands and thousands of spiders jump and swarm and web it on it while the Behemoth pounds away with it's big guns.
Rolled 49>>27336494What do you wish to ask?
Rolled 94>>27336497I didn't say the fleshbeasts were useless, only that spiders had their own uses.The Fleshbeasts have their uses too.Fleshbeasts are far better at assimilating monsters than spiders, being purely made of the flesh. And the larger ones are probably stronger to.Spiders can lay mines, ensare things with webs.To each organ it's own purpose in the body, no one greater than the other, each having their strengths and weaknessesIt is a homage to the wars Richard and Broodmothers ancient war.
Rolled 64>>27336476those things could skitter all over a spidertank and cut it to pieces in seconds. and it would only take a hundred or so. imagine what a million of them would do>>27336529imagine an enemy titan class monster, they are sllow and would would have thousands skittering over it in seconds>>27336538possible alliances, what the situitation is like over there, others?
Rolled 50>>27336538"So guys I'm sure you've been enjoying the food and sex and all, but we were thinking of visiting more of your cousins. What's friendly where your from? Do you remember anything that all Hillbilly's like, hate, want?"
Rolled 17>>27336569>alliancesWe can finally use that word?
Rolled 95>>27336603correctionpossible assimilation, that is the end result of all alliances for us
>>27336555If only we could find a way for fleshbeasts to self replicate away from the broodmother. That's their drawback, they have to drag all the flesh back home and have her birth more herself.I'd certainly like to start planting fleshbeasts nests around our base too.
>>27336632Right. Don't forget we have to sort through the bright and the dullwitted, the experienced and the novices.The former we'll have to convince personally.The latter, we can attempt subliminal messaging on.
Rolled 87>>27336642we just need to get the current fleshbeasts to gather biomass for the broodmother to cyclei think that the sheer amount of fleshbeasts should give us a gathering action
Rolled 49>>27336659yeah, that is if we even want the dumb ones.also i support the HillyBillys being refined gentelman with a taste for incest and fine wine
>>27336699Intelligence won't be an issue once they join the hivemind, as everyone can access the collective knowledge of our people. Strongarms are not the brightest fellows either, not that their dumb, but they make up for it with being great warriors.
Rolled 95>>27336723Not if they are incest-baby retarded
Rolled 94>>27336569Allaince? Hah we just came cus Alexis be on hella huntah. Womawn can HUNT. As for situation well other then monsters, zombies, and mutants fucken, Fightan, and hunten not much. >>27336579None of da families like outsiders(see they'll kill then eatcha). Alexis made an expectation but Hilly Billy family. They all like shootahs, choppahs, smashahs and boomahs. They hate outsiders and each other. They want more things they like simple.>>27336618Trade? Don't see much we may want from you as your productions are quite tiny to be most frank.
Rolled 53>>27336739well lets see what they have to offer first, im sure we can come up with somethingdefine shootahs, choppahs, smashahs and boomahs.
>>27336735Well then they wouldn't be able to consent anyway.
Rolled 93>>27336760they probably be could
Rolled 38>>27336756>>27336756Things that kill.
>>27336739>They all like shootahs, choppahs, smashahs and boomahs.Fuck where's Marcus when you need him.Least we have Torg. We'll need him to make more BOOM things.>They hate outsiders and each other. Hmmm, hopefuly it's the later over the former but I'm betting it's not.Maybe we can exploit their interconflict to our advantage somehow. Pick sides or something.
Rolled 92>>27336779and trade options?and are they any better than our weapons
Rolled 16>>27336792>Maybe we can exploit their interconflict to our advantage somehow. Pick sides or something.I've got it.Have Marcus bring the most explosive, destructive, BOOM things he can. Surely someone will want to trade with us.Your enemy always has what you want. We take those traded goods and find another tribe who is in want of them, and barter. Slowly we'll collect enough Hillbilly goods to make a decent deal with one of them, perhaps fight one of their enemies
>>27336837*Torg not marcus
Rolled 25>>27336792They collectively hate outsiders MUCH more then each other. If an outside force shows itself they'll unite against it in a heartbeat. >>27336802...user our weapons are akin to ancient single shot black powder guns user. Unlike most factions they kept on developing their weaponry despite the fall. Such as BOOM-Stick. SHOTguns. Rifle Cannon. Eater Plate. Personal Force Shields. EXX rounds. that is just what they have with them.
>>27336883>They collectively hate outsiders MUCH more then each other. If an outside force shows itself they'll unite against it in a heartbeat. Okaaaaaay let's just not visit these guys and say we did.Maybe, since we're so focus on psionics, we go finally visit those wasteland mutants.Basic 1>Assist spiders in setting up nests around our baseBasic 2>Send scouts to the wastelands to determine the situation thereProduction>25 ST's of close quarters variety. Best to keep emergency base defenses
Rolled 54>>27336883fuck, why dont you tell us these things?lets see what they would want for 1000 of each or 500 of each
Rolled 38>>27336883Yeah, let's not trigger a hillbilly war.>>27336934Wasteland mutants sounds good. Rollin for this.
Rolled 52>>27336934no, we continue research on psionicsBasic 1>Plant our spiders in the swamp around our base to set up nests/webs and replicateBasic 2>So long as he's fine with it, have The Prophet psionicaly link with the mulic/octor and do intense research on the crystalsProduction>STs?and he said not to go into the wasteland for awhile due to Grey Goo
>>27336950If we even show our face their it means war, let's not make problems where we don't need them.We can however, hope the caravans show up. Use them as middle men to trade with Hillbillys and give ourselves a decent name enough that we can step foot and they recognize not to just up and declare war on us.
Rolled 14>>27336951lets not get distracted aginavoting for this>>27336966>>27336972we dont have to, the guys who are here arrange everythin
>>27336966I though he went and goo'd the zombie hives?Oh well, fine then. I just hate monotony, it's letting the EDE's other gifts and discoveries collect dust. We can be exploiting other things and the crystals can only go so far
Rolled 44>>27336989but some things take dedicationit was a while ago, he said that we wont have to deal with bandits and that the deep swamp would be bust fro awhile and not to go into the wasteland for awhile
Rolled 68>>27336972The hilly Billy Family is friendlyish...the other ones however are quite hostile. Still not sure what it was Alexis did that made them so damned friendly in the first place...>>27336966Grey Goo was deep swamp Wastelands was his viral bombs.
>>27336966>>27336989And if you're going to use this it needs a better roll.Just please tell me you have other things you plan to research and explore once we're done setting up the spiders this turn and prodded the crystals to the fullest
Rolled 7>>27337006and the zombie hives>>27337009it is still a bad idea to go there
Rolled 5>>27337019>>27336966Forgot the roll part
Rolled 100>>27337019yeah, more psionics. we are going to end up being just as good a those bandits are with psionicsand some other shit like flesh beasts and shit
Rolled 58>>27337045ohhohoho this deffinatly counts, look what its linked tolinked to a post asking for a roll
>>27337045Great roll anon
Rolled 56>>27337045hahahaha, im gonna enjoy this
Rolled 53>>27336966Spider nests have been established.Psionic master continues to probe the crystal this time they discovered you could tinker with them to do stuff. Problem is their sorta capped out out research wise unless you wanna figure out how to grow them or develop new psionics to probe them with.15 plasma thrower ST10 Bandit ST constructed.
>>27337082woah, bad dice, bad dice
Rolled 100>>27337095Month 58>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice>>27337045oh you motherfucker let me checked to see what that was linked to.
>>27337045>>27337095This can't go to waste. Pretty please?
>>27337095look at this>>27337045
>>27337112>Rolled 100HA! Double 100's!I think we're in for a new psionic hero
>>27337129and maybe those weapons from the HillyBillys to
Rolled 46>>27337116>>27337117The only thing that has been changed is you figured out how to grow more and that you can program some of them>>27337112FFUUU oh god random event or something fuck. I already used my last 100 level random evnt idea.
>>27337160thats it? well if he is using a 100 on those crystals then they must be importanteither use it to get us the weapons from the Hilly Billys or have some traders show up with some weapons. cause we re4ally need new weapons
>>27337160Great. Next turn we'll need to start growing a crystal grove.Also can you be speific on the "stuff" they can do?
Rolled 63>>27337197Wouldn't fit for a crit level event.
>>27337197Nah, let the EDE use his imagination. He always comes up with something good
>>27337207i think he was just at a loss on things to do with them.maybe make it so that we can impant them in memor and make them psionicly powered like those bandit might have been
>>27337220i just want to solve our weapon problem
>>27337229Telekinetic BombsBatteriesMind scramblersDetectorsThere's plenty of possible uses for them he can come up with.
Rolled 10>>27337207Alright crystal info dump it is.There are 5 typesReactive: it reacts to psionic presence/energyCharged: can store a psionic charge.Reactionary: can use a psionic ability when activated.Node: Converts [REDACTED] into psionic energyHybrid: With some tinkering can do two or more effects.
Rolled 99>>27337275Have fun coming up with cominations/types/abilities to develop. You figured out the entire baseline for them all.
>>27337303Aw, so close to another 100.Still writing that other 100?
Rolled 40>>27337329Trying to brainstorm something anon as I used up last one.
>>27337275>>27337303>Have fun coming up with cominations/types/abilities to develop.>Reactive: it reacts to psionic presence/energyThese are the glowing ones I presume. We should make lots of these, probably as necklaces all Tectus and pilots can were that glow to tip off the presence of enemy Psionics>Charged: can store a psionic charge.These are the batteries. We keep these stockpiled, while the collective hivemind leeches off psionic energy to it at a reasonable rate.>Reactionary: can use a psionic ability when activated.I presume activation also requires energy, and can be increased with energy thereof. As such, these should be used in conjuction with Charged crystals as the battery source>HybridA sort of on the fly adataptable crystal to fit changing needs I'd thinkDon't know what to do with Node because of good o' REDACTED
>>27337351Take your time.By the way thread's nearing the edge of page 15, you can call it a night and sleep on it. Or make a new thread. Or whatever.
>>27337275Reactive: sensors maybe? not a while lot of optionsCharged: a TON of possibilites, implanting them in memor, giving them to memor, psionic powered anything, and a lot more. have the mulic fill them because they will not be in combatReactionary: give to every one memor so that they can multi task with psionic abilitiesNode: yeah lets go get EVE nowHybrid: reactionary/charged could do some cool shit, reactive/reactoinary could make psionic traps, charged/reactive could add sensors for the hivemind other than memor eyesfinding out what[REDACTED] is will open up a bunch more
Rolled 50>>27337370I'm 100% positive we can weaponize these crystals into some type of psionic gun or cannon. Be great to pierce those psionic/tech combo shields.
Rolled 22>>27337383I will make a new thread was I get some caffeine and figure out what the hell I am gonna use that 100 for.
>>27337370they would glow around us so they would be always glowingwe need to start producing these batteries ASAP
Rolled 66>>27337400Meanwhile feel free to discuss or start the new thread without me. I will show up there eventually and activate the next turn once I count votes/rolls. Just don't forget to update the stats if you do so.>>27337426What for you don't have any psionic abilities yet that need excess energy.
>>27337389charged/reactive/reactionary could maybea psionic Golem?>>27337443well lets get to that. what about Wrath and No Limits?lets develop an immobilization ability
Rolled 61AND I rolled 3 doubles in a row. Fuck.
Rolled 31>>27337426>they would glow around us so they would be always glowingThey might glow brighter if a powerful enemy psionic is nearby. Or we can program them to change to a specific color in a psionic presence that is not us.Also it's kinda feelsy to imagine that everytime a Memor dies, his crystal becomes dim or dull.Yeah, we really need to start growing these guys. What do they need? Water? sunshine? The blood of our enemies?
>>27337479this is gonna be goodwe could always get ramona and marcus backthe development of signifacant psionic abilities may sway marcus, tho they arent very impressive yet
>>27337494maybe a mulic just has to stare at them for awhileand that is a feelsy ideasmaybe we could make it so that minds/memories of memor are transfered to the crystal for preservation upon dieing
Rolled 51>>27337497Wait till he see's what the psionic railgun can do.
Rolled 92>>27337466Wrath calls upon the members of the Hivemind NOT any potential batteries. At least not directly anyway. No limits just releases the natural limiters the body posses but certainly not without risk.>>27337494I am afraid the baseline for nodes is [REDACTED]. >>27337497Markus wont be swayed until you fix your rep. Its to hard to do what he needs to do with such a difficult rep to work with. Not hard to reason out.
Rolled 81>>27337519soulstones ehSomething like that, or maybe we can use them to mimic the thought patterns of our heroes. How some of our greatest minds think, so we're not at a complete loss if they're gone.
