Rolled 90Last time in Mutant Hivemind Quest our heroes took part in an epic battle. One of whom was lost forever smoking his last cigar while beating the enemy to death with his own arm. Meanwhile we have a rather large threat descending on our base. Of whom is most interested in our Broodmother and saving her...from us. Luckily it is willing to communicate but the Arch Brood King will be here in two turns time. We have also acquired ourselves a new crystal Hero! In other news the ghouls have sent us an envoy.Hero wise the Prophet has a rough idea of 1 problem the creature stated...mostly that it came down to not thinking or planning properly. Maybe. Alexis the Huntress meanwhile doesn't really care as in is more concerned with Giggles at the moment.Torg meanwhile is building a gigantic bomb for reasons unknown.The new crystal hero meanwhile has severed itself from the Hivemind and is busy meditating. Richard and Clora'Zel are still busy for another two turns.

Rolled 38Event a new ghoul hero has appeared and wishes to join us.Accept the offer of Necrotic ghoul Reaver(ravager) and his pack?Apparently he has heard word of us and is most interested. That and his forces can't exactly move as easily as they used to thanks to the whole cold war deal going on between the Bandits and other Ghouls.
Rolled 27>>27350417...just realized I forgot link to last thread http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27337711/
Rolled 59>>27350522accept his offeri wont be here for long
Rolled 51>>27350903it's a bit early, so not may people
Rolled 87>>27350417we are gonna need to get the prophet on fixing the loss of individuality issue
Rolled 11Got and get food while waiting still no one, Man what gives you can literally kill the thing if you want wish hit LITERALLY and that isn't even including whatever the secret project is.
Rolled 36>>27351893>>27351893bah meant hit not wish. Freakin typos. All you got to do is might have to penetrate the armor and you got stuff that might work for that.
Rolled 49hm next time make sure to not end thread on such a threatening note also make sure to leave writefagggotry that needs doing for when its slow.
Rolled 54>>27352461well im back for a bitwe are gonna kill that fucking thing and get our spiders inside of ita lot more happened in the thread after the last archive, i still have it up in another tabim the one who had the most criticism last night but im still here for the long run
Rolled 6>>27350441>>27350441>Month 59>>>>>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>6 resource points.
Rolled 19>>27352949And to think I still have so MUCH more to throw out still. Ah gonna be goood if you survive long enough.
Rolled 59>>27352949last night the main concern was the giant monster feeling railroady with it trying to change how we do things.then people brought up how our xenophobia was hurting us and i pointed out how it wasnt and we are in line to becomeing one of the dominant forces in the area/ and some people were saying that if we had been trading and been open with the outside world we would have been as strong as the faction that just killed the brood mother. then there was some complaining about how you never got back to us on some trade deals and how the traders havent been here in forever. then peopl were saying that we were being mindless because we made mistakes and there was a bunch of other shit as welli adivse that after you go to sleep you leave the page open with autoupdate on so that in the morning you will be able to see everything that is said in the thread even if it as 404ed
Rolled 3>>27353275>>27353178im not gonna vote yet because i gotta leave agian for a bit.it is kinda slow today
Rolled 27>>27353312I checked the archives. As for why traders are not showing up the swamp is flooded with ghouls and even new breeds of monster. They don't know how to deal with that well so they're not really showing up. Plus you can trade with the hillbillies why the fuck do you think the reps are there? You just got to trade them something they want. As for railroady you always got a choice. Its just that the setting isn't static. Things change even if you are not aware of it. Plus you don't even have to do anything about what it says. Its just concerned in its own strange way about Clora'zel and it plans to do something about it.
>>27353404There is a lot of shit that isn't in the archives because no one archived again at the end And we did ask to trade with them, and what they would want from us. I asked like 3time and i know someone else asked to. We just never got a response from you
>>27353404And as for the railroad bit. I always give us hints and things and this felt A LOT like something that you would use to try and slap the stupid out of us. Not that it is, it's just how it lookedAnd yeah, we are gonna kill this fucker
Rolled 69>>27353404Guess I go through and clear some stuff up from last thread from when I left.First of all I don't mind if you are playing xenophobic evil fucks. I DO however expect you to be smart about it as that type of play gets you killed REAL fast if you are not. In fact I was happy about the whole not star-guard deal. Markus left because you were no longer good business. Other heroes too may leave or even betray you. After all they all have their reasons for sticking around...or not. >>27353475I posted some of what they had as for what they want I stated what their interested in. Mostly things that kill or you could try offering them something else. >>27353544I may end up having to use Richard for that again. His pure SCIENCE take tends to perfect for that sorta thing. Problem is he isn't psionic so really confirm or test out anything that he suspects when it comes to the Hivemind. He has a rough idea despite that problem though.
>>27353582Well we aren't pure evil. I think we've settled on a neutral "we will expand, you can either join us or perish" kind of thing.Peaceful assimilation is also what will happen to any we temporarily ally with. Betrayal is also a small possibility
>>27353582Could Marcus come back if we fixed price report up a bitWe also need to ask all of our heros their goals. We know Richards and Prophets and Torg is pretty simple. Let's ask crystal, broodmother, Alexis and the New Ghoul and who ever else
>>27353887Fucking autocorrect, I'm on my phone in the car agian
Rolled 49>>27353791...your leaning pretty heavily towards evil. Like at least bandits don't mind-rape you into joining them tier evil. As for expansion your not doing it smartly people don't like the concept of hiveminds they will fight real hard to maintain themselves. Your 'assimilation' is terrifying to them and your not nice/clever about it. This makes it even so much worse. The only reason your still around is because you have only dealt with the rejects and scum. Once you are no longer dealing with just them you will perish. >>27353887Markus will only return if you are good for business.Crystal Is meditiating its goal is no know more about the world.Broodmother goal is to attend to her brood.Alexis goal merely wishes to hunt and roam.Necrotic ghoul former Reaver and now Ravager known as Voss was once a member of the most infamous and worst tier of bandit the Reavers. Basically he just wants to do as a the worst tier of ghoulish bandit does. Only recent he got disqualified as Reaver is do them him dying then rising up as a necrotic ghoul with then found himself with a pack. Who despite his best efforts couldn't get rid of said pack so he got disqualified. Something that is he most certainly sore about. After all Reavers have to be solo because their literally so fucking vile that not even the worst of bandits what to work with them.
>>27354120Well the hivemind will be perfect for crystal dude, cause it is better to have access to ten thousand eyes tha. n just 2I don't see how we're that evil. As far as doing it "smartly" how would you suggest? We are building ourpsionics so that we may compete with our neighbors, I'm suggesting we work on making our assimilation process a lot more subtle. Fleshbeasts can be mass produced if we get into a serious war. The spiders will help with resources collection and military and research. What else?
>>27354120I suggest we send that sick fuck on some sort of suicide mission soon, he will destroy our rep beyond repair. We assimilate because we don't wish to kill them, we want to show them the glory of the hivemind
>>27354407not everyone wants to join a hivemind in fact most people would rather die before joining
Rolled 40>>27354347'assimilation' is the problem at least the way your doing it. Nearly all are hostile to want it entails. >>27354407That 'sick fuck' joined you thanks to your reputation. Even other ghouls who leery about that one.>>27354428Exactly. Not to mention they will be more then happy to destroy you if you try to forcefully spread. So far you have gotten quite lucky be surrounded by fellow rejects and horrifying terrain.
>>27354428Yeah, I suggest psionic suggestions and broodmother suggestions to help with thatPsionic suggestions won't even 'force' then persay it will just plant and idea in their head that they think is their own. It's the broodmother suggestions that force them
>>27354488shit like that is why people want us dead I have this far out there idea to get people to join. inprove are rep and ask people to join
>>27354466That's why we need to fix our rep by killing this fuck because he is to evil for usI now support killing him and spreading the word that he was really fucking evil and we do not support evil
Rolled 41>>27354514Even if you improve the rep you still got the creepiness factor and mutant one. Its a problem that is not easy to fix.
>>27354120>As for expansion your not doing it smartly people don't like the concept of hiveminds they will fight real hard to maintain themselves.> Your 'assimilation' is terrifying to them and your not nice/clever about it. See that's why I'm constantly a proponent of more friendly/not scary tactics.Everything begins with choice. Even if that choice is at a near unconcscious level.>>27354514I don't understand it though, technically nobody of e. For the experienced we can't use it, but for those on who it works why would such tactics be a a bad idea? All we are is offering cake and sitting down to have a nice chat. It's basically the same as asking only giving a little bit of a push. Subliminal messaging can't be bad when used correctly right? We live with it everyday.
>Smar/tg/uy hereMight i kindly suggest we investigate the tunnels for the hivemind creatures down there that've been poisoning our hivemind from the start? The Prophet is compromised, not in a hostile way, he's just the nexus of the hivemind so he was top priority to get tricked.
>>27354547*nobody even knows about our psionic/subliminal techniquesThe suggestion serum is still a viable tactic no? So long as we use it only on viable candidates.
>>27354565I thougt the tunnels collapsed.Also in the immediate turn we have to deal with daddy wanting to come and pick up her daughter. And that's bad news.
>>27354542>>27354514 Ythat is the problem. We will ask everyone first (especially any who ally themselves with us, like those bandits we have) but eventually the ones that are left will be suggested, harder and harder until thy joinYou dont try to convert your enemiese unless they are captured
>>27354616A friendly offer never hurt though.Also we really need to improve our public relations and credit. As is, none of the people who we called friend or partners showed up when we needed them. In fact I think the marauders rejected us.
Rolled 100>>27354541That fuck is keeping the bandits in line plus he joined you BECAUSE of your reputation. Literally. You know all that grumbling and the loss of Warlord Duel Fist was causing havoc amongst the bandits...now on the other hand. I dare say I never could even imagine bandits being so well behaved. Seriously what the fuck did he do to them? They were all elites...>>27354572Bandits know and word has since spread. >>27354591They did and you REALLY need to figure something out about that. Like reasoning with or something. You know figuring out your actions.>>27354616That causes strain to the Hivemind. The reason WHY its able to ensure loyalty is due to a stable base. You make that base crumble and it all comes tumbling down. Prophet does what he can.>>27354649That does indeed not hurt.In any case now that there seems to be players again what is your course of action?
>>27354591Yeah we're killing him, that's not up for debate, forgot is already building a bomb so we can punch a hole and get our spiders inI vote we kill that ghoul right now to help with our rep. It shouldn't be to hard to have multiple heros ambush him when he's alone
>>27354591The brood queen's tunnels collapsed, i get the feeling this unknown quantity is relatively unharmed by it though.May we ask the Brood King about what hivemind he was a part of, how ours differs, and if he knows of any other minds in the swamp?
>>27354649I was saying we offer first. But we won't get many until we fix our rep, which is why we kill the ghoul >>27354670Fear is not what we want, killing the fucker will probably make them like us a bit more
>>27354698Oh, and by the way if we don't purge the other hivemind from the swamp (the one causing all our problems, the one that has the hunger to consume all other entities) it's a really really bad idea to have psionic crystals in our base.
Rolled 39>>27354767dude, She Who Hungers is deadi dont think we have to deal with the hunger any more
>>27354760Killing him is a baaaaad idea. Just warning you. At least, murdering him in our base with our people after accepting him is.
>>27354670Beyond that nice 100, if your in the mood for writing>>27354572 (You)>Bandits know and word has since spread. Damnit I thought they kept their mouth shut until ours were killed to the last. Now it's gonna be even more difficult.
>>27354787No no, I got it wrong. The brood queen wasn't She Who Hungers. She Who Hungers is much more sly and cunning, also more dangerous and maybe more powerful.
Rolled 12>>27354698I was part of a hivemind of One. I was but of the number. However I evolved but was still hold in to it. Yours is different is but One of Many or at least should of been. Others yes there several. 1 for the saviors1 for the zombie3 that is brood>>27354793This one understands rep and moral.
>>27354787The Brood king heavily implies "you killed the wrong queen dude" and that she wasn't who she thought she was.ANd that there is still some malevolent force acting upon us.
Rolled 96>>27350417>In other news the ghouls have sent us an envoy.Hey EDE it doesn't take a turn to talk these.It's likely very important if they sent us an envoy instead of the other way around . What do our guests want to say to us?
Rolled 90>>27350417>Torg meanwhile is building a gigantic bomb for reasons unknown.Can we ask if he'll be finished in the next 2 turns?
Rolled 78>>27354832...you know how about all those deep swamp monsters stuck to the deep marsh...not anymore.
Rolled 27>>27354810the only other broodmother of Clors caliber is Clora sister. we shall have to deal with her at some point but i dont think she is in our swamp yet>>27354812>>27354793Alright then we attack him without accepting him, the turn isnt over yet so we havent actuallly accepted him yet. if we have then we kick him out, or we wait till he does something bad and we punish him for it. its not hard
>>27354879So is that good news, ill news, are they asking questions?
Rolled 79>>27354879well shithow in the hell did you turn a positive crit into us getting a giant ass monster charging as us and an influx of deep marsh monsters attacking our swamp?
>>27354896>the only other broodmother of Clors caliber is Clora sister. The only that we know of.If one thing the swamp has taught is still true there is always more than meets the eye.
Rolled 28>>27354910very very bad news. im juts curious what they plan/want us to do about it
>>27354913The positive crit opened up a special story mode.I think we chose the wrong choice by having the brood king "answer the call"
Rolled 4>>27354924the Arch Brood King specificaly said that, and that Clora sister is already corrupted by the hunger
Rolled 77>>27354938still, you dont hand /tg/ a mystery box and not only expect them to not take it, but for them to never find out what it would have been if they dont take itif there is 1 thing that /tg/ is it is curious
Rolled 83>>27350522I accept the ghoul Reaver.Also, at a later date, should we let this Ghoul-Bandit war boil over or should we pick a side and see where we can't use it to our advantage?
>>27354941The real she who thirsts might be far more than a broodmother.>>27354958Ever heard of a girl called Pandora?
Rolled 73>>27354958ima post the psionic list>Reactive: sensors maybe? not a whole lot of options>Charged: 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 combat>Reactionary: give to every one memor so that they can multi task with psionic abilities>Node: yeah lets go get EVE now>Hybrid: reactionary/charged could do some cool shit, reactive/reactoinary could make psionic traps, charged/reactive could add sensors for the hivemind other than memor eyes>finding out what[REDACTED] is will open up a bunch more, charged/reactive/reactionary could maybea psionic Golem?>I'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.>soulstones: maybe we could make it so that minds/memories of memor are transfered to the crystal for preservation upon dieing>Scream grenade crystals: Crystals charged to emit a psionic mental blast that is akin to nails on a chalk board x1000 but direct to your mind. Even more effective against other psionic users.Robots and cyborgs could use these without worry of hurting themselves.If we can direct it, we could also create megaphone versions. or use as Artillery or grenades>Psionic Golem/Tank: could use scream crystals in offensive ranged attacks>NEW! we now have a Psionic Hero name Tabula Rasa, (s)he is a creature made purely of psionicly sensetive crystal
>>27354973*She who hungers dammit I'll never be able to remember to differentiate
Rolled 20>>27354963do you want to destroy our rep?and im gonna go with the ghouls cause they have always been our friends (kinda, but they are the closest thing) and killing this dude will not hurt our rep with them because he said that even the other ghouls dont accept him
Rolled 12>>27354958That one depended on a roll basically it was entirely RANDOM. Everything else had a script already.>>27354941He stated her sister was her mothers' child.>>27354928They just chose to gave you a heads up.>>27354913The Crit was side story mode. Your decisions caused that to happen.>>27354998They are actually leery around them.
>>27354998Wait I didn't hear anything about killing him only accepting him to join.And I had no idea the other ghouls hated him so I need to read back why.
Rolled 51>>27355010They don't hate him just leery.
Rolled 89>>27355010cause he is beyond incredibly fucking evil>>27355007>He stated her sister was her mothers' child.this says absolutely nothing and i hate it when you do that>They just chose to gave you a heads up.ask them if there is anything they want or could use and tell them thanks>they are actually leery around them.>They don't hate him just leery.which is why they would understand it if we kicked him out or ended up killing him for some offense
>>27355049How would killing him be useful at all?I can understand rejecting him but killing him doesn't make sense.
Rolled 81>>27355007so will Torgs bomb be done in 2 turns?and we need to get on the spider production if there is gonna be enough to kill that thing from the inside
>>27355068The spiders production cannot be helped by us.Besides, even if we do open up wounds and try to get it in there it's still possible he has some sort of autoimmune system to defend against that sort of thing.The spiders are good for small stuff, not giant monsters. We need more heavy calibre weapons or focus on psionics
Rolled 81>>27355063because he is evil and killing him will show that we do not support evil. but it has been agreed that we wont kill him just not let him join or kick him out or kill him for doing something evil (specific offense)we're gonna use this guy to improve our rep a bit. and having him would further plummet our reputation
Rolled 90>>27355083no, it has already been stated (by EDE) that the best way is just to punch a hole and let them go to work. and this isnt a video game, the giant monsters done have smaller monsters running around inside them
>>27355096>because he is evil and killing him will show that we do not support evil.Firstly the ghouls don't hate him, just leery of him.Secondly I highly doubt killin him will fix all the other intensely evil things we've done to earn our rep before. Or that killing somehow improves relations when they could easily kill him.Thirdly, it's likely they won't give a shit at all.
Rolled 25Just waiting for consensus so I can use that 100. Already had done the random event this turn.
>>27355118> and this isnt a video gameLest we forget Fallout vidya healing radiation. Or that the idea of giant monsters in the first place>the giant monsters done have smaller monsters running around inside themWhere did I ever say monsters? I said autoimmunity against parasites.If EDE suggests it though I'm all for it.
Rolled 9>>27355152EDE is an A.I. who can't know everything user. My data on this target is most limited.>>27355068Unknown Torg is obsessed with explosives so who knows what it is for exactly.
Rolled 62>>27355133the ghouls are leery so they will understandnothing we have done has been intensely evil, the worst is probably when we attacked the bandits and llost ramona, every other time we were attacked first. and it wont fix it, it'll just be a small step, it'll show that we do have some morals
>>27355185>nothing we have done has been intensely evilSo the NIGHTMARE INCARNATE thing is underserved right?>Killing a "badguy" means you are moralWell by all means the bandits must be saints.
Rolled 11>>27355185That ghoul is a former reaver by far the strongest and worst type of bandit. His is also potent.
>>27355185> every other time we were attacked first. The attack on shielded base
Rolled 87>>27355181>>27355142wellBasic 1>Build Deamon PiercersBasic 2>Develop Psionic Railgun (the 100)Production>Churn out more spiders
Rolled 58>>27355208Bah meant his ghoul pack.>>27355152This setting pretty heavily relies upon rule of cool for ideas/things.
Rolled 48>>27355185>nothing we have done has been intensely evilI wonder how the Prophet would feel about that, seeing as how he's had to hide the screams of our own people being experimented by Richard among another darker nastier secret.For the good of the people, of course.
Rolled 95Look, we need to keep Voss. First of all I'm not sure the "Turn isn't over, we haven't actually accepted him" argument works, but also he will whip our bandits into shape and assure their loyalty.Also, his loyalty is guaranteed until our rep turns good. Since we don't have any immediate avenues for improving our rep (and because we can send him on a suicide mission as soon as we do) we should take him. The benefits far outweigh the penalties (penalties being nonexistent as we're already worse than his reputation).
>>27355225>Churn out more spidersSpecifically more Fixers because they're designed to cut and burrow into flesh.The only issue we're going to have is cutting open a holes through that thick armor
Rolled 39>>27355223that is the same as with the ramona and it wasnt even that evil becuase we didnt win or really kill anybody at all and they did encroach onto our territory without even sending an envoy, but the whole nightmare incarnate is simply because we are mutants and we have keep acidently pulling crazy shit out of our ass at last second to win the day. those who know use do not think we are evil (the ghouls, Marcus)
Rolled 14>>27355225I approve of this course of action, but change Basic 1 to Develop Psionic Railgun also. Let's not waste resources building useless tanks.
Rolled 51>>27355266that is what the Deamon Piercers and the Railgun is for>>27355262but sending him on a suicide mission wont improve our rep, and fear olny works for so long. im not saying we kick him out now, but we are gonna have to in the near future
>>27355279>that is the same as with the ramonaNo, before that. In the deep swamp>at all and they did encroach onto our territory without even sending an envoy,No they didn't. They built their city far away from our territory.The ghouls didn't send us an envoy when they began to build their cities.
Rolled 47>>27355300why waste 2 actions on a single thing? or wait, EDE does spending more than 1 action per turn help us at all?>>27355317we never ever attacked the deep swamp, the base we attacked that had the Psionic/tech shield was near the deep swamp but not in it. and i was saying that it isnt as bad as what we did in the situitation with ramona.but conveniently that is the base that ramona set a nuke off in and flooded with ghouls
>>27355300>Let's not waste resources building useless tanks.We've got to try though. Pour everything we've got at it. You're not just going to let those resources go to waste unless you can think of a better use for them.
Rolled 20>>27355358more than 1 action per tunr on the same thing>>27355317and the entire north swamp was our territory, they knew it to. we took it from the skull fuckers and we had our watch towers all over the place and we were wipeing any who encroached upon us
Rolled 57>>27355279Our reputation is because we're hiveminded (moderate-significant negative modifier) mutants (significant negative modifier) who throw their entire military into every action and attack almost all outsiders on sight (significant negative modifier) regardless of how many of our own it costs us (significant negative modifier) use nukes to call forth zombie and ghoul hordes (significant negative modifier) associate with broodmothers (moderate-significant negative modifier) and the list goes on.
Rolled 26>>27355381If it helps build the Psionic Railgun faster than i'm all for it. i just dont think it does. plus we have that 100 that i'm hopeing will help us complete it.
Rolled 20>>27355358Using more then one action speeds up the process AND you get to take 2 highest rolls of 5.
>>27355383>and the entire north swamp was our territory, they knew it to.>we took it from the skull fuckers and we had our watch towers all over the place and we were wipeing any who encroached upon usKeyword, was. That was until those other bandits struck and wiped our forces.Territory shifts and changes all the time. You can't lay claim to something unless you actively have the strength to hold it.Otherwise we might as well say everything in this swamp is ours because at one point in time we controlled it.
Rolled 29>>27355396these are all work-around-able:HivemindedMutantsuses nukes to use zombies/ghoulsBroodmother3 of those are just racism and 1 of them is just good tactiics that any smart general would approve ofthese are wrong:regardless of how many of our own it costs usand we only have attacked most outsider on sight, we didnt attack the traders or the marauders or the zombie research faction. the only one who we probably shouldnt have attacked is the hightech bandits
Rolled 1>>27355381I think that keeping those resources might be a better plan. Honestly I don't think fighting him is the way to go, I think that it'd be better to give him Clora'Zel and live to fight another day than to try to fight and incur his wrath and end this Civ.
Rolled 45>>27355426Then put it both on the superweapon.
Rolled 46>>27355426fuck then we use >>27355300all the way
Rolled 1>>27355468Hah, not connected to an action.
Rolled 9>>27355491>>27355468>two consecutive ones>On discussionsThat is either the best of luck, or the worst.
Rolled 48>>27355458yeah but at the time that they came in it was ours and they didnt send an envoy, which means that we were in the right for attacking.tho admitedly we should have tried to talk to them, both times>>27355468thank god that was discussion
Rolled 15>>27355501deffinatly the best
Rolled 87>>27355468>>27355491Such beautiful 1s...wasted.
>>27355504>yeah but at the time that they came in it was oursIt wasn't
Rolled 2>>27355536eat it its what you get for not taking that 100 last night, and yes im still sore about that
Rolled 78>>27355462It doesn't matter if it's "Just Racism" this is the Post-Apoc you're not going to encounter a whole helluva lot of social progressivists who think mutants should be consider autonomous moral agents too!Notice how no one else is shooting nukes off at their enemies to get zombies/ghouls to attack them? Seems like there's some sort of taboo against nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons even these days and if there's a taboo then it's a negative rep penalty.
Rolled 3>>27355501And they were both me, one was me responding to myself.
Rolled 27>>27355571>>27355553>>27355501>>27355491>>27355468>All these rollsAnyway, Basic 1: Psionic Railgun development (using the 100)Basic 2: Psionic Railgun developmentProduction: Production Spiderborgs
Rolled 39>>27355541it deffinatly was because we were the only faction in it at the time, we had killed all other faction in it and we had watchtower over the entire swamp>>27355556the only reason that nukes arent used it cause the bring/create ghouls and no one wants to deal with that (im assuming) and bio/chem weapons havent been avoided at all>implying that what is "taboo" would matter to anybody in the post spocpeople will do whatever it takes to survive
Rolled 82>>27355536what is consensus?
>>27355556The ghouls had nukes. Miss Mox's rocket salvo were all purchased of them.We're the only guys with the biofacility though.
>>27355594>post spocim an idiotpost apoc>>27355604this>>27355593evetryone plese turn your dice off now
>>27355594No, they moved in after we had lost all of that to the other bandit faction and we had abandoned those positions.>>273556042 basic moves on psionic-crystal railgunproduction, start churning out a whole lot of fixer spiders
Rolled 26>>27355594Who else has used chemical/biological weapons other than us? (Richard is a big fan of biological weapons)Voting this>>27355593Rollan.
Rolled 45>>27355593Still get another three rolls if this is consensus.
Rolled 76>>27355645Fine then
Rolled 86>>27355627they took their base before the bandit warlord invaded>>27355645can we use the 100 for it all? or would that decrease the affect it has on the railgun?
Rolled 7>>27355645Final roll.
Rolled 81I'm a little worried about this.Marcus didn't recommend a conventional railgun because he'd have to jury rig all the power from a biofacility.And what with psionic-crystal weaponry being relatively knew science on top of us having to jury rig it without an actual engineer.
No more rolls! Quick!
>>27355727dont worry, we have a 100 it will be fineand we know that psionics can literaly hold a behemoth in place so we nkow it has the power
>>27355743It's not the effectiveness of psionics that concerns me.Only the reliability of our technology.
>>27355755but it isnt techit will probably be either a crystalish barrel or 3 or 4 long sticks of crystal that are used to channel force into accelerating a slug at insanely high speeds
Rolled 23>>27355652>>273556657686Heroic bonusOur engineers were stuck on it. You know they didn't even have anything but heavy tank railguns to start with much less make it psionic...and miniaturized it. It didn't end well not enough crystals to boot. Only breakthrough occured with the new hero uprooted some crystals, which assembled themselves midair, with some metal spikes molted themselves into rods/clip once he was done mediating and fired it off before looking at our engineers and stated."More crystals are required."After that a crystal throne grew and the new sat down upon, then started tinkering with some floating crystals ignoring our forces.Meanwhile our forces created more Fixer spiders.>>27355727You have engineers they just aren't heroes.
>>27355797Is that what you were thinking? I was thinking something like a directed lance of psionic power that'll blast whatever it's pointed at.
>>27355797>it will probably be either a crystalish barrel or 3 or 4 long sticks of crystal that are used to channel force into accelerating a slug at insanely high speedsYou are describing technology.Design of the barrelEnsuring the proper crystal chargesPreventing overload or too much strain on the crystals, as well as inevitable recoilActually knowing how it interacts with physical material and trajectoriesThese things I pray our own scientist can manage

>>27355837I imagined that sort of thing too.Perhaps there could be several different projectile possibility.
>>27355837thats not what a railgun is>A railgun is an electrically powered electromagnetic projectile launcheronly we substitute electricity with psionics>>27355856none of that is tech, it is all psionics. and that last bit doesnt really matter at all.
Rolled 13>>27355864There are two 'hard' types Metal and Crystal. 'soft' types are unknown.
>>27355832Guys, the Arch Brood King will be here next turn and we have nothing. We're going to lose Clora'Zel
Rolled 56>>27355874>none of that is techThat's entirely tech what are you on about?In any case it's a moot point, we have engineers
>>27355864typicaly railguns are used to accelerate very small objects to such high speeds that they strike with force in the mega tons>>27355892we shall explore
>>27355897it is more the domain of the mulic and the prophet and new hero than engineers. why do you think that an engineer who has been working on building tanks would have any idea what to do when handed some pcionic crystals
Rolled 15>>27355917Basic general memories can be shared while talents/special traits/abilities cannot can be shared if the holder allows it.
Rolled 23>>27355917>it is more the domain of the mulic and the prophet and new hero than engineers.It's both.>why do you think that an engineer who has been working on building tanks would have any idea what to do when handed some pcionic crystalsBecause that's how you create effective weaponry. You can discover a phenomenon, learn how to activate it, but it takes some technical skill to weaponize it. They see a crystal push an object, someone is gonna need the know how of how to create a configuration that results in a directed force. It took more than a knoweldge of electromagnetism to create conventional railguns at all, you also needed to take into account the other specifications.
>>27355859Ask the Arch Brood King if we can have send an envoy with him/Clora to maintain communications that will be strictly verbal.
>>27355951Now hold on, shouldn't we mobilize our forces?Or are we gonna have this all go down in the base. I'd rather not have that happen.

Rolled 94>>27356001proabably outside of the base but still near it.next update shit is gonna hit the fan with Richard/Clora and Torg and the brood king comeing
Rolled 76>>27355977can we get numbers on the spiders? or are you not really keeping track?>>27355978we should proabably be cross training our engineers in both from now on
Rolled 33>>27356009This seems to cover it. it's next turn that really counts.
Rolled 89>>27356060Considering they reproduce/threats not really. Be way to much of pain.
Rolled 11>>27356009rolling for this even though we don't really need it
Rolled 16>>27356009Sure, why not. Can we use this? >>27356045
Rolled 13>>27356095so lets just say that there is a lot of themand they are supposed to stay near our base so the threats shouldnt be too bad>>27356009works for me
>>27356009Well, I'm not gonna vote against it since it's clearly what you guys want.Just remember Tabula's words "not enough crystals"
Rolled 82, 73 = 155>>27356009Roll.
Rolled 9>>27356126well shit, i want to delete the post and change B with grow crystals but then i woudl lose the 94
Rolled 41>>27356140dont think we are supposed to do that>>27356126and i guess we are just gonna have to stick with it. we'll grow the crystals next. if its not to late
>>27356150We can't even grow crystals proper without researching the node crystals.
>>27356189And that requires uncovering a [REDACTED] thing
Rolled 50>>27356189yeah, but we can start. we grow what crystals we can until we either find EVE or find out what they do
>>27356205We already have started"Without the node crystals, it's going to take a very long time"
Rolled 48>>27356245nah, he said that it "would take a long time, not incredibly long, but long"
Rolled 46>>27355832100Alert Alert Richard and Clora'Zel have left the lab early...with some interesting things in tow.MutantBorgs unlocked.Cyberbeasts unlocked.Workers unlocked.Symbionts unlockedHive Net unlocked.Richard upon finding what happened is rather irritated and said all this panic was for nothing considering he could cook up a single bullet that would kill it...problem is however he is. He is went off to talk with the new Hero while dragging the Brood Mother along. He was muttering about damn "memories and taint" on his way there. Clora'Zel meanwhile has contacted the creature...it has stopped in its tracks user.
>>27356294Well then we should have richard make that bullet while we still have time.Also can we tap into that conversation? She is connected to the hivemind unless she wants it to be private
Rolled 5>>27356294define/describe:Cyberbeasts unlocked.Workers unlocked.Symbionts unlockedHive Net unlocked.ask richard what he meant by that bullet, ask clora what she said to itask richard what he means by "memories and taint"
Rolled 6>>27356294MutantBorgs unlocked.Cyberbeasts unlocked.Workers unlocked.Symbionts unlockedHive Net unlocked.Can we get some specs on these?Also, does this mean we've suceeeded in fleshbeast-cyborg hybrids?
Rolled 27>>27356403it seams like a fleshbeast/cyborg woudlnt be to hard. not any harder than a regular bio/cyborg>>27356294that is what that 100 was forwhat about Torg? he still working?
Rolled 56>>27356294we need info
Rolled 34>>27356294hm I assume you are Richard, Stated Tabula looking over from his work.Yup must admit didn't think it was possible for psionics to affect me very impressive. Indeed, however I assume you are here for the two problems this Hivemind is having?Yup I believe you know?Indeed its why I seperated myself. You the first doesn't have an easy fix as long as they don't play smart right?Yeah I know but I am hoping the fix for the second one will help.Very well then have fun explaining.Meanwhile Clora'Zel and a certain Arch Brood King had a conversaton.HOLT.Hm so you have finally chosen to show up...And you plan to take me away.Bad influence.They are my brood.You do not lead.I am not suppose to lead only guide....you do not guide then.Or so you believe.Believe heh if you were such you would fix problem. You did not instead you are being infected by it, but still redeemable. What if its fixed?Hah as in all?No but partially to show that improvement is possible.Very well if improvement is does not occur...quickly I WILL destroy them and take you with me. Have fun healing protective one.Hm just don't turn into your sister on me. You shouldn't you help her?Only after I take care of you, then yes.You push yourself too hard don't you.I do not have long to live but much to do still...and I must say you certainly got Queen material in you. To catch me off-guard so well.>>27356389Cyberbeasts Flesh beast with augmentation. workers; old stuff to inefficeint repair wise due to both lair and high tech. So something new was devises to handle both.Sybionts:enhances user.Hive Net: allows hivemind like communication between bio and metal types.
>>27356591So bascially we can avoid a whole lotta issue if we find just what this corruption is and improve it, if only a little
Rolled 23>>27356591>>273566381 of the issues is our people losing their individuality. it was said yesterday and op also said that it would be easy for the Prophet to fix
Rolled 20>>27356591so what exactly can the workers do? can they man an assembly line? can they build tanks? repair them? collect materials? looking for an intelligence levelwe are gonna wanna mass produce the symbionts for people to use.would it be possible to link that Hive Net to the Hivemind?
>>27356681Hmm, then so be it.I'm wonder how that's going to work.Maybe some kind of individual pilgramage/rite of passage? A person is separated completely from the mind for a month in order to discover who he is among his people
Rolled 41>>27356591so we aske Richard and Tabula what exactly the problems are, im assuming one of them is the loss of individuality.so Cloras' sister is "protective one" and needs to be healed?
Rolled 61Richard hereAlright you fucking morons you know some of the problems your oh so precious Hivemind been having? You know how memories and shit are passed around between you? Well guess what that also means the things pass around ALSO fucking taints you. The very thing you are so PROUD of is literally poisoning you. Basically all the major faults/grudges of the previous generations are passed on despite their efforts because its STRONG. You can only block so much. This means you use the benefit being able to change rapidly with the generations. It strangles as their locked in a quagmire. Powerful Hatred, loss ect. is passed on..builds up. Forms a toxic cloud throughout the hivemind tainting EVERYTHING. Which just so happens ALSO works as an excellent smoke screen. Mind blank doesn't do you shit if they just go through use the taint to mask themselves. You would literally never ever know period.So here are you crazy fucks so very proud of the everything that will lead to your doom. Despite the so called 'benefits' others have to start nearly from scratch since birth. They don't just 'start' with everything they need. They can be influenced and helped but not that is it. While it is slower it also serves to minimize the bad while maximizing the good. That little short cut you are just SO fond is fucking you over. As the problem is it directly carries on the burdens of the old to new. The burdens while seemingly beneficial will eventually break your back leading to you dying so very slowly. For the reason is simple.The Grudges and faults of the past are supposed to stay there. Not be carried along with know how/experience just because its easier. Because taking the easy way will always end up biting you in the ass eventually.Richard out.
Rolled 40>>27356591So right now our first priority is gonna be fixing whatever is wrong with the hivemind.then we can move back into developing those crystals and railguns. how big are the RailGuns? like rifle size?
Rolled 64>>27356790Bah meant lose instead of use for the first paragraph.
Rolled 53>>27356790so, we need some sort of hivemind cleaner? something to go through the hivemind and eat up all the feelings of the dead generations?
>>27356790I see. I see indeed.The sins of the father are visiting our children at a young age.When we induce our young into the mind, not only do they gain the good they gain the bad of the last generation!That is how they lose their individuality!How did I not see this sooner
>>27356909Instead of growing up to be their own person, they are imprinting life of a previous generation. This includes the baggage that person had.The only solution is to up the age of hivemind joining. Some kind of rite of passage or adulthood. Each new memor must discover who she is first and then join the hivemind, rather than have the hivemind dictate who they are.
Rolled 60>>27356909so we need something to get rid of all those feelings that are just floating around. the good and the bad
Rolled 28>>27356728They build, maintain, and repair. Even the most sensitive or complicated of things.>>27356798Railguns at the moment are cannon sized and amazingly crude.>>27356849The cloud taints everything. It is the very memories you pass on and rely upon. Quite the problem to fix. It basically clouds the entire Memor in a toxic soup...problem is they never realized it because it always seemed to be that way.The other problem is you being not so smart with plans for expansion and 'assimilation'.The PROBLEM was literally STARING you in the FACE the ENTIRE FUCKING TIME you just NEVER even bothered to CONSIDER the OBVIOUS or even what supposedly BENEFITS you. it was beyond painful to witness I might add.
>>27356941It's not that we can get rid of them, we need our people to develop their own sense of morality, what they believe is good or bad, first rather than the hivemind tell them.Time will clean the generations, it's the corruption of our youth at such a young agewith previous grudges and hatreds. they need to develop themselves.>>27356909>>27356937And really, to have been revealed this by a character who's name and embodiment is literally "Tabula Rasa" is irony of the highest degree.
Rolled 63>>27356937No, because the feelings will still affect the person when they do join. and we lose the benefit of helping our young.we have to find a way to get rid of the feelings that are just floating around. we need a clean pure hivemind
>>27357017>because the feelings will still affect the person when they do join.But this will only worsen if given to children at such a young and impressionable age, whereas an adult will have developed their own feelings AND individuality to counter that.
Rolled 26>>27356988be fair, we didnt really get to many hints that we were losing our individuality until that Arch Brood King got herewe need to clear the airways of the hivemind of feelings so that they dont pollute the minds of our members. i just have no idea how we could do that
Rolled 50>>27356937Somehow this makes a lot of sense.It's like being bombarded with thoughts of what everyone should hate and everyone should love at like 5 years old. You're just being the person the hivemind tells you to be. not becoming an actual person.
Rolled 76>>27357037it doesnt quite work like that. you cant be assualted by hatred (or any other emotion) day and night for 24 hours a day, day and night and not let it affect you. the only solution is to remove it in the first place
Rolled 24>>27357070actually they are being bombarded with "hate the bandits" "Remember Ramona" "The Warlord Was Awesome"it wont diferentiate ages, it is just mindless feelings
Rolled 37>>27357079>you cant be assualted by hatred (or any other emotion) day and night for 24 hours a day, day and night and not let it affect you. If you have the willpower to do it. Adults and adolescents do. Children do not.I'm not saying we shouldn't try to clean the mind, but what better way to do so than let those grudges die with the previous generation and not pass on?
Rolled 77, 13 = 90>>27356941Yes, shall we have a showing of Oedipus and Antigone for the hivemind to achieve catharsis?
>>27357113Yes but age and experience determines how you react to these mindless feelings.If you are still young you believe without a doubt "hate the bandits" "this is the right thing because everyone believes it so"Where as if you actually lived your own life you could develop your opinion, your own sense of morality, not just be dictated by them before you've developed into your own person.
Rolled 29>>27357121but ignoring it will not make them go away. and do you really think that the equivalent of a teenager will be able to resist overpowering hatred or overpowering love? you would have to atleast be the equivalent of 30 to keep up a constant resistance like that. it would literaly be like the monkish "resisting all emotion"
Rolled 99>>27357140i have no clue what those are, or what Catharsis means
Rolled 77>>27356988EDE, do you have any psychological or sociological data that might assist us in finding a way to destroy old hatreds?
Rolled 27>>27357121Imagine the most emotional moment of your life and then imagine that feeling constantly for 24 hours a day for your entire life. most people cant resist it even once, let alone a constant barrage of it.And our children are born into the hivemind, they are just shielded until they are ready. there is only so much you can shield.
Rolled 44That sudden feel when I had the sudden realization that I have no fucking idea how I am gonna beat this twist...fuck.
>>27357171>but ignoring it will not make them go awayThat's what I just said> and do you really think that the equivalent of a teenager will be able to resist overpowering hatred or overpowering love?Far better than a child who hasn't even learned what he thinks of those concepts>it would literaly be like the monkish "resisting all emotion"Not all emotions. Grudges. Stereotypes. Things which are only detrimental to us. We can train our children to resist, supress them in both themselvse and others, such things and better the mind as a whole.Thinking with emotion over rationality is never the way to go.
>>27357222>, they are just shielded until they are ready. And it's clear they are not being readied enough, as they are being tainted.We should both find the source and cut it off, while simultanously training our kids to resist the taint.
Rolled 18>>27357240That is already being done the problem is how insanely strong and pervading it is.
Rolled 60>>27357264As in not even mature adults or even HEROES are safe.
Rolled 46We have crystals that can store thought patterns, right? Why don't we have the Prophet shunt all of our hatred into some of those? We'll do it periodically to make sure too much never builds up.The test of when one can become a Memor will be when they think they're ready to glance, for a moment, into the racial hatred of all of Us. Of course they'd never expose themselves to all of it at once, they'd get to gauge their preparedness based on looking at a sample of hate-crystal first.Gotta be careful the hate-crystals never animate on us though. Don't want a Tabula Rasa of ULTIMATE HATE AND DESPAIR.Rolling to see how well that'd turn out.
Rolled 2>>27357240>> and do you really think that the equivalent of a teenager will be able to resist overpowering hatred or overpowering love?>Far better than a child who hasn't even learned what he thinks of those conceptsthey still wont be able to, infact most teenagers are emotional as fuck. though i dont know how the mutants are but the fact that they used to be human implies that they still o through puberty>>it would literaly be like the monkish "resisting all emotion">Not all emotions. Grudges. Stereotypes. Things which are only detrimental to us. We can train our children to resist, supress them in both themselvse and others, such things and better the mind as a whole.we are gonna want to have a zero influence policy, we dont want one group to help us and then change and we not realize how twisted they become because we still fucking love them so much.raionality is better. but emotion is still necessary. and it is impossible to resist emotion forever
>>27357264Then what more can be done? How do stop it?Have the prophet research into it?
>>27357292Good ideaBut crystals of pure hatred are some of the most dangerous things we can have.They could seriously shit up if let loose, and we can't throw them at our enemy. . .or can we?Maybe we can use the hate crystals to increase the effectiveness of Mass Wrath.
>>27357300I got it we stop being a hivemind
Rolled 85>>27357287exactly>>27357292i dont know if they can store thought patterns, it was just said that they can store psionic energymemor are born into the hivemind, they are just shielded they are old enough.if we do that then we find a way to purge the crystals or we destroy them.>>27357231it is not good to create a problem that you yourself do not know how to defeat
Rolled 34>>27357350yeahnothats our biggest advantage and the only reason we are a hivemind. if would literaly take years of therapy for each memor if you were to destroy the hivemind
Rolled 84>>27357343Actually, that sounds like a pretty interesting idea.Can we let of some steam by fuelling all our grudge and hatred into an enemy or a big rock or something?>mfw we're playing psychotherapy with a civilization
Rolled 69>>27357343i could see creating golems out of them and we "enslave" the golems like they are dijins and use them in battle
Rolled 30>>27357397>>27357405we could just get the entire hivemind pissed and create some more hatred troops. the enemies face when the kill a bunch of us in a battle and we have the exact number of hatred/crystal troops as the ones we lost in the next battle.hashtag hivemind problems
>>27357397>The Prophet sits in his office>Telepathically asks everyone to sit in a coach at home>"Now everyone, I want you to think about what you hate. What you dislike the most. And think about it on that boulder over there">The boulder and the surrounding ground and tree's for a mile implodes into a the size of a pebble
Rolled 5>>27357264>>27357287so is this>>27357292even a little feasible?
Rolled 52>>27357484my sides. we have to try that. those exact wordsbut seriously until we get that fixed i suggest some group meditations
Rolled 23>>27357485No it wont it the problem would nearly instantly regrow, and we don't have NEARLY enough crystals for something like that.
Rolled 8>>27357631Primary problem is that it will come back VERY quickly.
>>27357631>No it wont it the problem would nearly instantly regrowWell, on the bright side if we have a limitless supply of hatred so long as we gather the crystals.Or better yet, maybe we can invent some crystals that can turn hate directly into energy.
Rolled 76>>27357631well lets ask the prophet what he suggestsand Richardand Tabulaand Clora
Rolled 4>>27357672and the brood king
Rolled 52>>27357667I would honestly like to entertain that idea,
Rolled 84>>27357748well we'll need the proper amount of crystals first>>27357672and Alexisand Torg (i guess?)
>>27357672We have Richard and Tabula's opinion.I would like the Prophet's take. Clora is busy with diplomacy and we know how the Broodking feels>>27357778I doubt they would, but if Alexis and Torg can shed some light I'd be pleasantly surprised
Rolled 78>>27357879no we have their opinion on it in general, not on a solution to it.
Rolled 34EDE are you writtin or waiting for conensus?
Rolled 38I guess we're going to have to stop sharing experiences in the hivemind then. Maybe we can make some crystals to store useful experiences in later, but we have to fix this right now.
Rolled 72>>27357921i'd prefer to just purify the hivemind if we can.lets get the opinion of our heros first
Rolled 96>>27357921A Memor inquisition to deem which experiences are good for the Memor and beneficial and which others should be purged
>>27357962A mulic inquisition.and they will be given mandatory Red suits and hats
Rolled 26>>27357962i would prefer that our memor are exposed to everything but not everything all the time. and i would prefer not to have censorship
Rolled 80>>27358004The prophet has already had to censor many things before.
Rolled 65>>27357672Richard suggests mindwiping and imprinting.Tabula suggests...whatever it is he is working on.Clora suggests truly becoming One>>27357698broodking suggests becoming Many>>27357879Alexis suggests being forced to go on a long journey to find who they are.Torg suggests make it go EXPLODE.
Rolled 61>>27358025shield and censor are two entirely different thingsshield protects the hivemind from something that may harm it or the individualcensor prevents the memor from viewing something because he thinks it's badand im assuming that the hivemind knows that the 50 memor were given to Richard. they were volunteers after all, and you dont just have 50 people disapear with no explanation
Rolled 53>>27358067So1.) Mindwipes and imprints2.) Tabula Rasa's. . .thing3.) Embrace absolute hivemindism4.) Tone down on the hivemindism5.) Individual pilgrimage to create strong self image to overpower negative influence6.) Thank you Torg, duly noted
Rolled 6>>27358067and the Prophet?Richard: noTabula: lets ask what that isClora: she wants a traditional hivemindBroodking: he wants no hivemind at allAlexis: hahahahaTorg: just.... just get back to work Torg, we shouldnt have bothered you.
Rolled 21>>27358076The Hivemind only knows that they were volunteers handed off to richard and then disappeared. Beyond that...
>>27358076>shield protects the hivemind from something that may harm it or the individual>censor prevents the memor from viewing something because he thinks it's badSemantics.
>>27358102>>27358109Yeah, Alexis means well but not even our Heroes themselves, who many have gone on long lonely journeys and are arguably the strongest individuals, can stand up to the taint.Torg. . .torg I don't even
Rolled 19>>27358102Alexis' was a joke. she doesnt know she just wants to get out of the place and do some exploring.speaking of which i say we send her on a long term scouting trip for a few months and check out what the situitation is around the entire swamp. she will bring a handselected group of tectus with her. we expect knowledge of faction/conditions and any and all info she can gather. this will keep her from getting antsy and keep her loyal to us, and we should need her for awhile because we have been fasttracking R&D or a while to come
Rolled 87>>27358137only to a dictator
Rolled 72>>27358102>>27358109>>27358171Not believing Torg when he says EXPLOSIONS fix everything for shame user.
>>27358205Like the Prophet
Rolled 100>>27358187we shouldnt need her for awhile>>27358209if he can come up with an idea that will work then I am totally game
Rolled 40>>27358225if you think the Prophet is a dictator then you have been reading the wrong threadshe helps GUIDE and MANAGE, NOT lead
>>27358248But he has censored things which would be dangerous to the hivemind. That's the point. It's not being a dictator.
Rolled 23>>27358231Nice wasted 100 anon.In any case what is the consensus for actions?
Rolled 15>>27358209>>27358112>>27358067can we get a response from the prophet on ideas to fix this problem. he is the one who has the best chance of solveing it anyway, with him being invloved in the hivemind and psionics so muchand can we ask Tabula what it is (s)he is working on?
Rolled 32>>27358277can we get this>>27358281first?
Rolled 75>>27358281whatever it is i like this idea>>27358187because we need to start seeing to our heros more.and whatever we decide will help with the hivemind problems.
Rolled 31>>27358277feel free to take as much time as you need for >>27358281so that you may com up with the best ideas
Rolled 25>>27358281Prophet knows two things. 1 the Current Hivemind needs purged somehow2 must prevent the bad from being passed on.As for ideas he doesn't really know.Tabula is working on memory crystals that will store them. Problem is preventing the bad stuff(such as limiting what you specialize in) or curing the current Hivemind. Also doesn't know if he has enough crystals.>>27358372You have no idea anon I am just waiting to see what you guys come up with.
Rolled 87>>27358389so in other words you dont know how to solve this any more than we do? fuck
Rolled 90>>27358419I have an idea problem is I am the QM and not a player. I can hint but that is it.
>>27358389>1 the Current Hivemind needs purged somehowOptions:Determine which are the bad and good things via inquiry, and manually cut the wheat from the chaff>2 must prevent the bad from being passed on.Options:Create stronger sense of individualism to resist bad thingsDecrease sense of individualism? A stronger hivemind to resist the taintDetermine which are the bad and good things via inquiry, and manuall cut the wheat from the chaffDevelop crystals to store bad things and do something with themAny other ideas?
Rolled 66>>27358494well the im saying thisBasic 1>we send Alexis on a long term scouting trip for a few months and check out what the situation is around the entire swamp. she will bring a hand selected group of tectus with her. we expect knowledge of faction/conditions and any and all info she can gather. this will keep her from getting antsy and keep her loyal to us, and we shouldn't need her for awhile because we have been fast tracking R&D and will be for a while to come. she will make a similar circuit that she did when we first got her.Basic 2> Give Tabula Rasa whatever she wants; be it crystals, help, SSTs, whatever it is we give it to herProduction>Produce Crystals by the fuck tonExtra: Group Meditations
Rolled 61>>27358522>>1 the Current Hivemind needs purged somehow>Options:>Determine which are the bad and good things via inquiry, and manually cut the wheat from the chaffit is not so much "cut the wheat from the Chaff" as it is "get rid of it all". we are gonna want memories and emotions and feelings to be passed in the present but not memories and emotions and feelings of the past affecting us, be they good or bad
Rolled 85>>27358522an increased sense of individualism will probably result in a vizen like state, or whatever it is that marcuses wife is.
Rolled 63>>27358530lets make sure that Alexis takes anywhere from 5-20 with heri can vote for this
>>27358567>we are gonna want memories and emotions and feelings to be passed in the present but not memories and emotions and feelings of the past affecting us, be they good or badWhere do you define which memories are past and which are present? After a time should people just forget certain memories?
Rolled 28>>27358615have her start training some protoges.>>27358619memories of the dead. if we bring it any closer than that then we are mind wipeing people.
>>27358636So we completely erase the memories of Warlord Duelfists from the mind? All his tactical insights and such?After a time the people who witnesses his heroism will die to and his legacy will be completely forgotten.
Rolled 38>>27358636If we're going to wipe the memories of the dead, we're going to have to have mass wipes as is because we've had thousands of people die already and their memories passed on.Huge chunks of memories will need to be purged
Rolled 39>>27358651i think we can keep the "memorioes" but not the emotions and feelings
Rolled 61>>27358665emotions, grudges and feelings will be wiped. the actual experiences will be left. it'll kinda be like an Archive Of The Dead that contains the memories of all our dead
>>27358671>>27358694Well good luck finding out how to separate emotion from memory.
Rolled 13>>27358711that is what our new Psionic crystal hero is for. i suggest The Prophet and her work together
Rolled 93>>27358694>emotions, grudges and feelings will be wipedEven patriotism? Feelings of pride and heroism in our legacy and our people? The good along with the bad?"Remember Ramona, but it's not like you're supposed to feel anything so whatever""We are Memor. That's about it. Nothing special"
Rolled 68>>27358742yes, even patriotism. the remember ramona scene does not require emotion, it will envoke its own in whoever is viewing it. pride, patriotism, even love can all be taken to far. so when they are pooled in excessive amounts they will consume the mind of any who access that pool
Rolled 78>>27358742we are not getting rid of the emotions themselves, just the emotions of the dead. the living will keep their own emotions
>>27358783>>27358738>he remember ramona scene does not require emotion>it will envoke its own in whoever is viewing it. pride, patriotism, even love can all be taken to far.And that's the problem, because the opposite can be entirely true as well.There are memories out there that on their own, even without remember emotion, can invoke their own. Memories that by themselves create a sense of grudge, hatred, anger.Seperating emotion from memory will be difficult in that memories by default can cause emotion.
Rolled 75>>27358828but it is the same as the real world. we should remember the holocaust and how evil it was. but we should go around killing all germans.
Rolled 54>>27358828the memories are pure information; and while yes information can inspire emotion, it does not force it onto the viewer of the information
Rolled 41>>27358530Voting for this.
Rolled 84>>27358916i think that makes 3
>>27358892But the memories holocaust still leave a sense of emtion nonetheless. Nobody remembers it as purely an experience, they derive feelings from it. And we especially shouldn't forget that.>>27358909Which means certain memories and pure information can still inspire the very emotions which taint out society.The point is, seperating emotion from memory or emotional potential from memory is in and of it's own a logical paradox.
>>27358530I support this as well.
Rolled 16>>27358945yeah they do leave a sense of emotion, but not an overpowering onei get what you are trying to say, but im talking we get rid of the emotion that the dead people felt but not the memories of the dead. yes the memories may inspire new emotion, but it will neither be as strong as the one who lived it nor will it linger there forever.infact this will kind of create a current "mood" of the hivemind that is constantly unpadting and changeing
Rolled 47>>27358945>>27358994kind of like a he stabbed the guy and he was feeling hate. rather than he stabbed the guy and he was feeling hate, and the person feels the exact hate that the person doing the stabbing felt.does that make sense?
Rolled 42>>27359019the person viewing the memory
>>27358994>>27359019I get what you're trying to say too. The emotion will be to a lesser degree without the actual emotion of the persons experiences.Just that I'm wondering if that's enough.Because I'd still feel a little sore against the guy who stabbed my brother, if if I didn't know my brothers hatred. Add that to the memories of hundreds of my brothers being stabbed, dismembered, blown up, ect. I'm bound to create a natural opinion.
Rolled 42So...how do you plan to fix the current generation hivemind included?
Rolled 13>>27359052Maybe we can create a crystal that stores dangerous opinions
Rolled 95>>27359052exactly, it is YOUR opinion. you are given the facts and you drew your own opinion, that is what we want. not the opinions of others being forced onto us. nor do we want to completely ignore the past, because that can get you killed, and you can learn from the past.it would be like us completely forgetting the fiasco with attacking strange factions without scouting first, we would be bound to repeat our mistakes over and over agian
>>27359117For a start, we'll make a bit of a dent by completely eliminating the emotions within the memories of the dead.It won't fix everything, but should a little.
Rolled 5>>27359117im thinkin this>emotions, grudges and feelings will be wiped. the actual experiences will be left. it'll kinda be like an Archive Of The Dead that contains the memories of all our dead>it is not so much "cut the wheat from the Chaff" as it is "get rid of it all". we are gonna want emotions and feelings to be passed in the present but not emotions and feelings of the past affecting us, be they good or badso basically find a way to get rid of the emotions of past generation while leaving the memories.but also this>>27358530as the "turn"
>>27359127Ah, but do opinions count as emotions? Because certainly emotions come from them.For example, if I remember every one of my ancestors were in life of the opinion "I really don't like bandits". And I had the memory of them being killed by bandits. With my own eyes and ears and sensation.Do you honestly think I would have any reason to develop an opinion to the contrary? Or that my peers and children would?
>>27359145Which won't fix everything, as we'll still have to figure out what to do with the negative emotions the present living hivemind will generate naturally from certain memories.But it'll make a big dent at least.
Rolled 67>>27359146no, it would be a "he didnt like bandits" and if you met a bandit that changed things for you then no you wouldnt hate them. you own experiences and the emotions wil obviously be more real than those of otheres, as every mind is inherently different and the thoughts of one will rarely match with the thoughts of another>>27359153i may solves the problem altogether, the problem is it piling up to the point where it cant be resisted, if it doesnt pile up from the dead then it shouldnt get to overwhelming
Rolled 67>>27359153and we also wouldnt want to wipe the love that someone feels for their wife or shit like that.lets stay out of the realm mind wiping for now
>>27359175>"he didnt like bandits"More like "hundreds of didn't like bandits back then"> if you met a bandit that changed thingsBecause those opportunities crop up all the time am I right?>you own experiencesLet's just hope those experiences provide a contrast to the examples of the past, and not strengthen them.>if it doesnt pile up from the dead then it shouldnt get to overwhelmingWe shall see
Rolled 80>>27359189yeah well theyre bandits what do you expect? i think it is natural for your own experiences and opnions to feel more "real" or "better" than that of someone else
>>27359180But we're about to do a huge mindwipe of our pop on the emotions of the past dead regardless.Gonna be weird when if your parents dies, you suddenly no longer directly remember his feelings of love for you. Only that you felt loved, and they said they loved you, but you don't have the actual emotional memory of it.
Rolled 67>>27359215and the love that you felt for them, and the memory of them loving you, and the memory of feeling their love for you.and sacrifices must be made, humans dont even get to feel it period im sure they can manage.
>>27359199>i think it is natural for your own experiences and opnions to feel more "real" or "better" than that of someone elseFor humans at least.Not so much in a hivemind where you can literally feel when your brother cuts his arm, or where "people who are good at sex tend to be quite popular"
>>27359231But that's gonna be such a huge transition for them.Like saying "You can deal with losing your sense of touch. Born lepers never get to feel it period, and they manage"
Rolled 52>>27359233dude, not only were these guys mutated from humans but that also look almost exactly like humans. our hivemind values privacy and individuality.im actually not sure quite how our hivemind works when it comes to pain and things like that. does everyone in their particular hivemind feel it? does the entire thing feel it? only the individual?
Rolled 42>>27359254it isn't near as drastic as thatand i just realized something. the memor can instantly view thousands and thousands of memories or "movies", have access to instant dicussion with thousands and thousands of people. they are the Mind Internet.
>>27359259>not only were these guys mutated from humansSome, but most were natural born Memor.>but that also look almost exactly like humansNot quite either.Also it depends on consent of sharing experiences, which naturally in a hivemind few people really care. Generally speaking, nobody gives a shit when you take a shit.They value privacy, but certainly to a lesser degree than humans. The heroes value privacy the most.
>>27359275It is. You're losing an entire spectrum of emotion that one so near and dear to you had and that you've known for so long. You can no longer confirm that they loved you, only say so.And yeah, not only can they have instant discussion they have instnat resolutions>"Can you imagine, a polar issue like abortion, being debated by every single person in the nation simultaneously, where everyone instantly see's everyone else's point of view and resolves differences, not through slow words that can be misinterpreted, but pure logic and rational thought, and an agreed consensus that fits everyone is achieved all in minutes."
Rolled 27>>27359287yeah, but a memor is probably biologicaly very similar to a human. and i was meaning the first memor.yeah mostly like a human, the only difference is the sores the white hair
Rolled 10>>27359307yeah i remember that conversation, it would literally solve every problem ever.and they are just gonna have to deal, they will have to rely on the memories of feeling that emotion. it sucks but it has to happen
Rolled 51>>27359307People will have to move on.
Rolled 90>>27358530Alexis disappeared with 24 Tectus will be gone for 5 turns for a long range scouting mission.Tabula Rasa meanwhile...this is gonna take a bit of writefaggotry explaining.Production we don't really know how to produce more crystals. You are Tabula. Right now you figured out how to create memory crystals...but you don't have enough. It should help problem is however the already existing corruption even if you had enough crystals. And mind wiping wont work cause it will destroy everything in the process.So Tabula you don't got enough space for all the memories right?Yeah not enough space.How about I tell you I can get enough and to store the memories to boot. Without crystals. How do you plan to do that.Data storage and memory copying.Doesn't that contain all the important data not to mention not nearly enough space?Watch this. That was when Richard pressed a very simple button called delete. The only thing that anyone could hear was the psionic screams of the Hivmind in pain and misery.What the FUCK did you delete, asked Rasa after he/she got over the scream despite not being apart of the hivemind before seeing Richard's memory.Porn file deleted.Why is porn really that important?Clearly you have no idea how much people love their porn.But to take so much space...Well now we have a place to store it temporarily.You know they are all gonna hate you right? Plus didn't you use it too?No I sorta lost all those faculties since my transformation not to mention my porn wasn't on that server.Oh they are REALLY gonna hate you. Heh wait till you see what memory storage and mindwiping entails.Meanwhile for some reason Torg was lining explosive materials throughout the base...when asked about what he was doing his only answer was- "EXPLOSIONS FIX EVERYTHING". They then promptly detonated.
>>27359341>>27359356Yeah, it's for the good of our people.It's gonna be pretty gutwrenching though.Two lovers who once could literally feel their love for each other, making it only exponentially stronger as they confirm each other every waking moment. Not only in death must they separate, they must now surrender the treasured and intense memories of the love they once shared.
Rolled 87>>27359366Holy shit Richard your a dead man.All that porn. The memories or your first time or of the best sex any Memor ever had in our history. Gone forever.
>>27359366I'm gonna have to buy plane tickets to China and Egypt just to recover my sides
Rolled 97>>27359366Oh dear. maybe we should suggest digitizing their porn?Torg....Torg....Torg what did you just do? and why did you do it?what are the damages from Torgs... thing?now we have to get on to deleting the emotions of the dead, fuck>>27359387they will still have their own memories and emotions and their lovers memories, and the memory that "she loved him" he just wouldnt feel the love>>27359408i would ptobably kill him tooh my fucking sides, i dont have a proper reaction image for this
Rolled 19>>27359366Basic 1>Delete the emotions of the dead but not the memoriesBasic 2>Delete the emotions of the dead but not the memoriesProduction>Nothing for they will be in shock
>>27359492Erm, let's set up some automated defenses first in case we're left reeling for a day. Or 7.
Rolled 19>>27359497we already got them and we have the borgs and beasts if something really happens.[spiloer] this is gonna be bad
Rolled 39>>27359492Whoa whoa whoa slow down there, we've got King Brood at our gates.Maybe we can ask him to protect us while the entire hivemind is reeling from a relative kick to the balls that deleting the emotions of our history will be.
Rolled 62>>27359521the members of the hivemind only really constitute like 2/3rds of our forces, and i do you really think it will be best to tell him exactly when we will be weakest? though it may be usefull to say "can you kill anything that comes our way for the next couple weeks our so" then do it in that time
Rolled 83>>27359366...user I don't know how to explain this but...the Hivemind is no longer clouded.Meanwhile during the havoc of both porn deletion and EXPLOSIONS Richard slipped away to go on a 'journey' for obvious reasons.Return date unknown.Temporary memory storage is online. Two variants are available general history(no emotion) and private lessons(with emotion to improve effectiveness).>Month 61>>>>>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>2 resource points.
Rolled 75>>27359492I'm surprised we've recovered from the deletion of sex memories and now you want to get rid of emotion memories too?Mannnnnn are we going to be utterly mentally wrecked for a long time. This generation might have some scars that can never heal.
Rolled 92>>27359576>...user I don't know how to explain this but...the Hivemind is no longer clouded.wait.WAIT.SO YOU MEAN TO TELL ME ALL THIS TIME THAT"S WHAT THE HUNGER WAS?k
Rolled 61>>27359576oh my fucking sides
>>27359576>>27359591Cripes, so when he meant "your hunger for expansion is so great, like my queen" he wasn't kidding. Hahahahaha, all this time we were just to hungry to breed.
Rolled 24>>27359576so should we do private or general?
Rolled 16>>27359591Torg's explosion...cured it. I just just my logic coprocessors just can't...even with super computer assistance.>>27359430>>27359577Both memories and digital.
Rolled 56>>27359576oh fuck, we were just horny
>>27359615Both.General history is the one publicly shared to all.Lovers and parents should be given private crystals for posterity and should not be shared to others in excess or likely be segregated from the mind while viewingAfter it is done, the crystal is stored and the emotional memory deleted from the person until the next time he wants to look at it.
Rolled 71>>27359627lets go talk to Torg on WHAT THE FUCK HE DID!
Rolled 77>>27359430Torg literally blew the toxic Hivemind cloud in a EXPLOSION. As for reason EXPLOSIONS CURE EVERYTHING.a lot of stuff is pretty wrecked at the moment...not to mention all that mental trauma...
Rolled 43>>27359644We The Giver nowAnd I'm perfectly fine with that.
Rolled 64>>27359647what about physical damage?>>27359644i can roll with that
Rolled 64>>27359647Correction Torg yelled at me its actually EXPLOSIONS FIX EVERYTHING.>>27359646EXPLOSIONS FIX EVERYTHING.
Rolled 43>>27359667can we ask him about the bombs he used?
Rolled 74>>27359644I'll go with this.We're gonna have to rebuild our porn collection somehow.mass competition by Memor for the new title of greatest sex in history
Rolled 84>>27359664its being repaired as we speak by the new worker drones...while everyone else is sorta in stupor. Luckily this makes it easy for them to be herded for mindwiping and memory copy.>>27359672EXPLOSIVES WITH SUPER SPECIAL secret DUST.
Rolled 56>>27359576Basic 1>therapyBasic 2>Grow Crystals (Tabula Rasa)Production>?this>>27359644
Rolled 56>>27359686what are we wiping from their minds?what was the dust made of?
Rolled 71>>27359702You DO want Richard back eventually right? Cause he WAS the one who sorta deleted the porn...do you think the memor are gonna forgive that easily?As for dust...secret. Honestly user I have no idea as Torg is claiming that the dust is made of up dried tears of pure AWESOMENESS.
Rolled 73>>27359694>therapyMan I sure do not want to be the Prophet right now.We ought to get him a barrel of coffee, he's gonna be busy.
Rolled 76>>27359731We ought to make some kind of witness protection program and have him work in secret parts of the base.I'm sure the Prophet can hide him like he has before, and Marcus.
Rolled 12>>27359736Yeah...about that prophet is also sorta in stupor. He was the hardest hit in fact.
Rolled 45>>27359731alright i can agree to that, but only those memories.>>27359747dont need to, they wont remember>>27359783looks like the prophets' got kink, that and he tried to shelter his people from it.
>>27359783I can imagine why.Well, while we're all curled up in fetal poisition and sobbing let's just hope Clora and Tabula can keep things in order.
Rolled 21>>27359783so your saying that the only one who isnt in a stupor right now is you EDE?>>27359800they're in the hivemind to
>>27359813They don't seem to have been hit so badly. Tabula was still speaking after Richard pushed the button, and hopefully Clora is similar.
Rolled 74>>27359813Ghouls, borgs, fleshbeast...but not Clora'Zel is in a stupor to keep her brood intact...she should be able to recover by next turn. The rest of our forces however I doubt are so fortunate.Not even bandits were spared thanks to the whole porn goes bye bye.
Rolled 85>>27359832i dont know, with cloras; breeding impluse and the impulse to protect her brood
Rolled 84>>27359841ok, the bandits being affect is just silly. its not like they are in the hivemind
>>27359841I thought all our bandits were dead.And what of the Brood King, is that giant dude still looking down on our base and wondering what we're up to?
Rolled 24>>27359841we better make sure that the evil fuck of a ghoul doesnt take advantage of this
>>27359862We had a few hundred join the mind and stay human over the years (never bothered to mutate them), but I thought they all died in monster madness.
Rolled 43>>27359866we still got like 1000 bandits
Rolled 4>>27359876but we still have like 1000 bandits just kinda chillin with us. half of them are the glow crewz
Rolled 91>>27359862Thinking the bandits don't love porn.>>27359866He is sorta wondering what the fuck just happened and is once gain approaching.>>27359874He is one of the only heroes unaffected. At the moment he is trying to get the bandits back out of the fetal position. They should be available in a turn or two.>>27359876They are not part of the hivemind.
Rolled 68>>27359841so Basic 1>Therapy?Basic 2>Therapy?Production>Have the Worker bots finish repairing our base
Rolled 4>>27359920You can still research just be aware that any manpower intensive action isn't recommended.
Rolled 48>>27359917we should see the brood king off to the deep swamp soon>bandits in the fetal position for 2 monthslel
Rolled 6>>27359937who would do the research?
Rolled 87>>27359941....they don't have anyone to rape or whores to fuck. There isn't really much bandity stuff to do so they had to...occupy themselves. >>27359953You could always mutate or something. As for research crystal hero is still active.
Rolled 33>>27359920alright thenBasic 1>Therapy?Basic 2>Have Tabula Rasa start growing CrystalsProduction>Have the Worker bots finish repairing our base
>>27359966The Fixer Spiders can come in and help too
Rolled 49>>27359973im sure the workers will do fine, but alright thats fine to. we need to put that hive-net in with our spiders
Rolled 14In any case don't forget to vote old threads included and archive. Noticed there wasn't all that many. Plus what is the consensus or are we just really slowing down for the night?
Rolled 3>>27360024I'm with >>27359966>>27359973Don't worry, it's just while the Memor are reeling from the loss of porn, we're reeling from the loss of sides.
Rolled 79>>27360024i'm going with this>>27359966
Rolled 20>>27360035Man I knew it was gonna be funny but apparently I had severely underestimated just how much.
Rolled 17>>27360046it was funny.but it is also slowing down for the night as well, its almost 2am where i am and you started it like 1pm, so you've probably lost a good deal of your starting audience
Rolled 75>>27359966Thanks to therapy bandits are active once more as well as Clora'zel. Everyone else on the other hand...losing all that porn and the cloud that was such an integral part of the Hivemind. The double whammy seems like its just too much...Tabula Rasa has been found staring intently at the crystals as apparently he is supposed to make them grow...without knowing how. So at the moment he is trying to give them the evil eye and force them to magically sprout up...without actually having any eyes. He is most certainly trying though.Worker bots are busy at work.>>27360071Didn't have any place was completely empty for hours in the beginning. Next time I am gonna avoid Saturdays. Fridays seem to be good still need to check out Sundays though.In any case the Arch Brood King has arrived...only to settle his great bulk over the entirety of our facility perimeter included. While Unleashing a devastating shriek that could be detected throughout the entire swamp and more.His excuse being that you needed to some protection as your forces recovered from the trauma. He seemed most mighty amused about the whole thing. Stating that he could allow Clora'Zel to stay but not without his temporary protection as you recover. After that he stated that the remnants of Spawn will begin to arrive citing that her sister can't control them all and the ones way out here are to far out to be of much use to him or her sister anyway. The rest of them he sent of somewhere else doesn't cite where though. We also got our pilot hero back for some reason. Granted she was comatose but it seemed the autopilot took care of rest.
Rolled 49>>27360024It's not exactly that we're slowing down, in so much as we're waiting on your every word after were done discussing.

Rolled 78>>27360145How much longer until his protection is ended and we are healded?
>>27360145>RamonaFuck yeah, and her special vech is here too
Rolled 13>>27360184unknown user. He promised to stick around until you could take care of yourselves though. After that he had to help the other remaining broodmother. As for recovery...who knows. Forces are beginning to recover but its just an amazing shock to pull through from is the problem
Rolled 76>>27360145Well, at least Tabula's trying heh>>27360158>Basic 1Bandits with Spider tanks and actual spiders go out to gather resources>Basic 2Continue therapy.>ProductionNothing. We don't have enough resources
Rolled 18>>27360145so we got Ramona and her mobile fortress back?i hate how you make it a side note, this is big shit, like really big
Rolled 93>>27360145>>27360158didnt tabula say that it was possible to grow a crystal grove? have him research ways to grow more crystals
Rolled 17>>27360231What? Haven't you read the papers. It's not like when Custer came back from the dead they didn't bother to make it more than a footnote.
Rolled 20>>27360244We need to research [Redacted] first, which is hard without our proper forces, and then we need to collect resources as we're low.>>27360226Rollin for this
Rolled 54>>27360212im requesting a converstion with Ramona on what she wants, what she knows, what the fuck she is now, if she is in the hivemind
Rolled 49>>27360274She's in a coma ano
>>27360226I vote for this.So any chance we can get King Brood to lend a hand, or is he just gonna stand there and swat monsters away?
Rolled 69>>27360279once she wakes uprollin for this>>27360226next turn we shall dive into the growing of crystal research
Rolled 99>>27360287im fine with what he's doing now. he actually seems kinda cool now that he isnt being all threatening, i was dead set on killing him before to. well gonna have to thank clora for that
>>27360309>he actually seems kinda cool now that he isnt being all threatening, i was dead set on killing him beforeAmazing what a little diplomacy and a change of perspective can do.We need to start taking this kind of stance on other factions.>well gonna have to thank clora for thatClora. . . and hilariously painful circumstance
Rolled 38>>27360226Bandits forces dispatched togather resources. Despite being attacked repeatedly by ghouls whom promptly got repelled. The bandits succeeded in bringing back quite the haul.6 resources acquired.Brood Mother Clora'Zel and Rasa are doing their best to get the mutants out of their stupor problem is its taking a while.>>27360244They can grow slowly on their own its just if you want to speed it up your gonna have to find out about nodes properly.>>27360231She didn't have a mobile fortress and yes you did.>>27360287Arch Brood King is busy occupying monsters since the whole no longer sticking to Deep Swamp no longer applies. Its becoming a near constant war zone out there. Hate to see what Deep Monster Mayhem is like. By the sounds of it regular monster mayhem is equivalent to non Deep Monster Mayhem on a good day.>Month 63>>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>>C.

Rolled 4>>27360377>She didn't have a mobile fortress and yes you did.yes we did what?well we have Tabula start researching into nodes
Rolled 77>>27360377Basic 1>TherapyBasic 2>Have Tabula Rasa start researching NodesProduction> Automated defenses, build mounted plasma spewers on the perimeter of our baseit should help a lot with base defense
>>27360377Food is still low ain't it? Better work on the farms now why mutants aren't eating a lot.>Basic 1>b.) Worker fleshborgs try to improve farms>Basic 2Therapy>ProductionYou guys decide
Rolled 5>>27360418>>27360426I think that once we start therapy it shouldn't take a basic action to keep it going. Clora can keep at it while we work elsewhereAs such I voteBasic 1>Worker Fleshborgs better our farms to increase food supplyBasic 2>Tabula begins to research nodesProduction>Other workers and fixer spiders construct better base defenses meant to keep things out for once
Rolled 45>>27360426>>27360418combine these 2 into>Basic 1Workers and fleshborgs try to improve farms>Basic 2Therapy>Production> Automated defenses, build mounted plasma spewers on the perimeter of our base
Rolled 7>>27360445well if what this guy says is tru he get my voteif not then this>>27360450
Rolled 19>>27360445This right here
Rolled 96>>27360462Since there is so many, this guy seems to simplify things nicely.
Rolled 13>>27360478yeah im going with this>>27360462as well
Rolled 3>>27360445Farms have been sent to be upgraded...problem is the worker platforms don't know what to do exactly. So they started several project but never did anything more.Tabula meanwhile as set a node up on a table in front of his throne that he sat and watched...she forgot the sensors.We tried sorta couldn't construct better defenses all that well with the whole gigantic motherfucker covering everything with his bulk made it a wee bit tricky. Clora meanwhile continues therapy. Octor are capable once more as who then shielded the Mulic so they are good to go as well.>Month 64>>>>>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>6 resource points.
Rolled 5>>27360546Basic 1>Continue the farm upgrades that they started, if they dont know what to do then just build moreBasic 2>Have Tabula Rasa keep researching Nodes, set up the dam sensors this timeProduction> Automated defenses, build mounted plasma spewers on the perimeter of our base. build them in the factories, connect them to the defense system (EDE) and prepare them to be mounted on the walls once the big guy leaves (mounting them shouldnt take a turn)it should help a lot with base defense
Rolled 14>>27360546>Tabula meanwhile as set a node up on a table in front of his throne that he sat and watched...she forgot the sensors.We're gonna have to find [redacted] if we want crystals aren't we.Well it's late, I have to go. Great thread OP, very entertaining. Someone archive the thread and vote it it's not already up.
Rolled 36>>27360605Not just mounted plasma spewers, but the usuall guns and such.
Rolled 100>>27360546In any case think I am gonna call it a night its fucking late where I am at. Still be around for some questions answering though.
Rolled 66>>27360605so we build them and prepare them for mounting once he leaves?rollin for tihs>>27360622the dice gods do not want you to leave
Rolled 47>>27360622oh god damn it. Next thread gets a level 100 event. I really need to make a list of these things I swear considering our freakishly frequent they are its hard to keep coming up with stuff.
Rolled 84>>27360627Apparently so I will stick around a bit longer at least until my sleeping pills kick in anyway.
Rolled 81>>27360632can we just get like a really improved recovery, or some traders offering an awesome deal, or Tabula helping with growing crystals, or something else that doesnt add in all these new factors
Rolled 35>>27360644wait, Alexis is returning next turn. you could do some really cool shit with that
Rolled 77>>27360655wrong link>>27360638>>27360632
Rolled 23>>27360655Another 100 for Alexis trip. Oh fuck I don't even...
Rolled 35>>27360638i love them quest, have a goodnight. i gotta hit the sack as well
Rolled 53>>27360670another? she already got a 100? oh this is gonna be good, have her bring back EVE or something, or find a bunch of new crystals, or something else awesome like that
Rolled 52>>27360688The first time basically her debut. Oh dear...
Rolled 12>>27360712oh i see, and she already is familiar with the route. im looking forward to this.you gonna start it a little early agian tommorow?
Rolled 80>>27360783Meh who knows. Got a bit of work to do first but I will try. As I am trying to figure out the best days to run on the weekend. So Saturdays seem like they'll only really pick up later in the day.
Rolled 85>>27360801Once I figure out the best days and times to run I will start cutting back in order to help prevent burn out.
Rolled 37>>27360806>>27360801that would work, it was also a bit slower today because its the weekend and on the weekend everyone sleeps in till 4pm
