Rolled 77>>27696138A hero can only do 1 action at a time.
Rolled 91>>27696138Clearing the battlefields will net us some resources and prevent the monsters near our base from having as much food as elsewhere.If we hit the monster dens NOW then we won't have to deal with as many later.EDE has stated that devoting actions to heroes' projects (even if we don't know what they are) will increase the rate at which the project is completed because they receive manpower and its not just them that's working on it.Rollan for Mad Science I suppose.
Rolled 57>>27696152Unknown. They used super cells as a base for many things. They got exceptionally good at it.
>>27696156I didn't mean active assimilation, just get them out of where monsters can eat them.

We'll be sure to give them a. . .welcome party.
>>27696194Of course, I presume you mean "hero's can only do one action" then you mean Richard and Clora can only do mad science.If not, and they can do mad science and use basic actions as a bonus then by all means I suppose I can wait.
Rolled 99>>27696194I like the sound of that plan actually. But yea let's let Richard and Clora finish first.

Rolled 49Do you think it's possible we can spray the entropic virus on the corpses and battlefields?Turn them into good, at least the monster won't get to them.
>>27696503Maybe. It's not like corpses can avoid that. But unless we have the range to do it from the saftey of our base, we're not going near the battlefields again
Rolled 294 turns till XTREME Deep Monster MayhemDidrikson has returned he states that the Bandit he was after is surrounded by a nightmarish amount of mutant bandits. They mostly hold up around the wastelands. He wasn't able to get all that close and so he went overkill took out one of their bases. Sadly said enemy hero survived.
>>27696422If I recall, this will be our first Monster Mayhem even with Warlord Slag.What does he suggest we do in the 5 (or less) turns till monster mayhem?
Rolled 25>>27696591seconding to know this as well. Also ask our other heroes. In particular Alexis and Didrickson, who've had over half a decade's worth of experience fighting monsters.
Rolled 70>>27696591Warlord Slag suggests fleeing underground. As he states "its the only place Monster Mayhem doesn't reach."Alexis suggests Hunting them first. Didrickson agrees catching her off guard allowing him to tactically grope her ass, before mysteriously vanishing savoring his success. What he actually suggested was leaving the swamp entirely saying that the monster mayhem will spill over but at least you would get more time to prepare.
>>27696693>Warlord Slag suggests fleeing underground>"its the only place Monster Mayhem doesn't reach."Actually. . .that doesn't sound like a bad idea. As long as it's our own tunnels (can we fit everyone down there?). Do monsters tend to wreck infastructure and buildings of abandoned places or do they leave them alone? Then we have to take acount our psionic presence.Then again, we open ourselves to somebody else quickly taking our bases uncontested.>Alexis suggests Hunting them firstAlways an acceptable idea, or at least thin their ranks as they approach.>What he actually suggested was leaving the swamp entirelyAnd just where does Moses we make an exodus to hmm.

While keeping a look out for anything odd about to happen. Nova Kong is on watch near our base having burrowed himself. Apparently not even he wants to be around for whatever is oncoming. Irewin and his army along with slag went to our bandit base far to the west. While Ramona's tankers and Torg with his Bombardier(didn't take the new BOOM-City) went to the our bandit base to the far east. Meanwhile Torg gave the order to unleash the music/fireworks along with the new crystals mics in all its EXPLOSIVE glory to draw the Oncoming Monster Mayhem horde which worked...too well. The bandits meanwhile prepared to defend terrified about what was about to happen even they could feel it.Warning Extreme Deep Monster Mayhem has begun. Calculating casualties.

Rolled 85>>27698554WARNING EXTREME DEEP MONSTER MAYHEM HAS BEGUN.You are Jergan you are in a Bloody Bandit desperatly trying to hold of the monsters that came pouring in it was really fuck bad then the literal fireworks happen and the music began. Last thing he you felt was when a Monster swallowed you and your tank whole. You are Sherry A ghoul your forces were getting annihilated when the luring began. Last thing you felt was when a gigantic cloud of whatever it was descended on you.You are TORG after your AWESOME run in the bombardier you began to realize that clearly no one was AWESOME enough to endure what was happening, right now you are desperately trying to hold of the gigantic monsters that could swallow even your ride whole. Then a sickening feeling began to drop down in your gut. You realized that you didn't have enough AWESOME especially EXPLOSIONS to survive. Which is when you decided to show off what happens when even you question yourself you pushed the big red blinking button that said EXPLODE as your ride began to crumble around from all the monsters trying to get a piece. By this time your mags have long since run dry and even your barrels have become warped from all the firing.You are Irewin despite your best efforts the monsters were just too much. Fuck even before the lures were cast your forces were being obliterated now not just your ghouls are the only ones fucked. Right now you were about to get overwhelmed even the bandit base was cracking under the strain. Which was when you got a message from Warlord Slag who while on his tour heard about what happen he began to give instructions. He felt a strange sense of calm come over you and decided to do as he asked under one condition."You and I both know I am wont be making it out of here...so in order to buy your boys a chance I need a promise that you will take care of my ghouls when I am gone deal?""Agreed.

Rolled 36>>27698832Did Alexis and Didrickson at least manage to lure the monsters into some zombie hives? Those were priority over our bandit bases.
>>27698832We should have 9+6 resources, you never added the ones from the collection run with Nova King as escort to our total.YOU FUCKING IDIOTS, I GO AWAY FOR A FEW HOURS AND YOU LAUNCH FIREWORKS TO DRAW THEM TO ONE OF OUR BASES??? Why why why why WHY did it not occur to you to do that over near ANY, literally ANY FUCKING HOSTILE BASE??Now we're out 2 fucking heroes you goddamn idiots.
Rolled 25>>27698891To a degree Monster Mayhem was REALLY bad enough for them.>>27698905Correction resource points 15
Rolled 83>>27698832Good news: our base is safe. Smashed up some zombie hives.Bad news: 2 awesome heroes. and those casualties.>>27698905Hindsight is always 20/20, but yeah. Every-time you go away you know badshit happens.
>>27698905Not to mention losing ALL of our vehicles, ALL of our ghouls, and MOST of our bandits, losing Warlord Slag, losing Alexis and Didrikson temporarily possibly for good, and god knows what happened to Witch Luna.
>>27698832Do we have access to any of our research facilities and/or the crystal grove?
Rolled 73>>27698955We sent Witch Luna months ago before any of this was noted.I'm going to go out on a limb and say we were likely fucked anyway, those casualties would still be as high anyway, on top of that we'd be dealing with it at our base (and likely have to activate heroic sacrifice).But for now, we can be thankful as the monsters are the 5 Zombies hives problem to the far east (and the big fortress north of the east base). To the west, there are also Zombie hives for them to get at.
>>27699023I'd rather not do anything that could remotely jeopardize our hidden status. Especially crystals. Let's keep the dead zone for 5 turns while MME is still in effect
Rolled 54>>27699023Research facilities is a yes as its all underground. Crystal grove we do not we do however have access to crystal gardens.>>27699048Our 'distraction'(slaughter) was largely pointless as it hardly did anything for the Monster Mayhem. As for Warlord Slag I suspect he has gone rogue as his only requirement was for us not to make retarded tactical decisions. While we may have listened to a degree...we wiped out over half his men that he was responsible for. the witch meanwhile who knows how long she may be gone at this rate or if our heroes could even survive the underground in which they fled.
Rolled 61>>27699071Maybe we just ask for a 5 turn timeskip. Only to be interrupted when in danger.
>>27699184No, fuck that. We're not going to do nothing for almost half of a year, that's retarded.
Rolled 88>>27699214Do we risk a lab accident giving away our position? But I trust Richard and Clora will take extra precaution.We can't so much as step foot outside until this whole thing is over tho.
>>27699142That's right, you guys called down the brunt monster mayhem DIRECTLY ON one of our allied bandit bases.I don't think we'll have any allied bandits when we come out of this.We didn't even roll a 1 but this is on par with any of our great disasters. Fucking fuck fuck why do I even still try?
Rolled 26>>27699256Vile Bloods are still around they are however VERY leery.
>>27699238Yeah we risk a lab accident giving away our position because unless we had a hero who intimately knows our dispositions and is an expert tactician go rogue because we essentially attacked his base.If we don't come out of this shitting magic bolts of death out of our assholes as the least deadly thing we do we might as well just overload our reactor and quit, because we alienated our allies completely and won't be getting anymore for a long time (likely ever). Shit, people might just attack us out of hand because if they don't we might gain some power and we've demonstrated that we're going to kill everyone even if they're our allies.
>>27699327The only good thing is that SWH might not pay much attention to us any more because she might just be like "goddamn, these people are insane AND stone-cold retards. I have better shit to do than look at them."
Rolled 79>>27699327The ghouls consider you idiots/leery, Warlord Slag's bandits have gone rogue as well as the recently recruited Headhunters and raiders. Vilebloods are REALLY leery.
>>27699376See, we've gone so full retard that NPCs think we're dumbasses.Really though, WHY didn't it occur to you that you could call ALL OF THE MONSTERS down ANYWHERE OTHER THAN ON OUR ALLIES?
Rolled 69>>27699431Because you weren't here to tell us.
>>27699376>Basic 1Give Clora resources for whatever she's doing [2 Res.]>Basic 2Have the Prophet try and refine our psionic stealth power, he should get input from the Vizen on their powers of not being noticed. [This might take 1 Res. I guess]>Basic 3Have Tabula work on crystal amplifiers. You know, you channel your psychic might through a crystal and it amplifies your power.
Rolled 50>>27699555Meh, going with it.
Rolled 61>>27699555>Mad ScienceKeep Richard working on whatever he was working on. If he's done with that then ask him to look into the Experimental Fluids we've had sitting around for years.Mad Science roll.
Rolled 76>See, we've gone so full retard that NPCs think we're dumbasses.So nothing different I see.>>27699555I'm leery of #3, but alright. Voting.
Rolled 71>>27698873We should've gone with immortality tech when we had the chance.
Rolled 73>>27699555I'm just keeping a tally on how many resources we're using because we won't be able to replenish them for a while. Tabula's action will likely take 1 action too.>>27699610I'm trying to delve into crystals/psionics slowly, like EDE has suggested from the start. We know basically nothing about psionics despite having shit-tons of sensitives and a psionic hivemind. Don't worry, we're not going to make any fields or stuff like that (unless we get derailed by idiocy)
Rolled 67>>27699645>>27699637But after Clora is done we'll occupy ourselves with our other strength: mutations.
Rolled 2>>27699555Resources have been handed off to Clora'Zel who finished her project and is now transmitting the data into a form that Richard can use muchless understand.Prophet has begun trying to figure out how to refine the psionic stealth power. He talked to the Vizen about how they did it and got an idea of how to expand its usage.Tabula has begun working on crystal amplifiers not sure how he is going to do it though.Month 192Monster Mayhem ends in 3 turns.>>>>>A.

Rolled 62>>27699637That too.Consider that we're not going to be working on big projects for a while, it would've been more us in the immediate term (or rather for a long term really. You have no idea how usefull it would be to be able to recover the souls of the dead after shit happens).
Rolled 74>>27699695So Clora is available?>Basic 1Clora looks into the super-cells, have her try and find a way to produce weapon-organs out of them that could be integrated with our troops. Or have her finish up what she was doing.>Basic 2Prophet continues on psionic stealth>Basic 3Tabula continues on crystal amplifiers. Have him take a few of the crystals that act like psionic batteries and hook them up to a crystal that uses an ability, see how that ability crystal works when it has more power applied to it. If he doesn't see a way that an actual amplifier can be made he should direct himself towards figuring out a way that psionic-users can draw power from batteries to boost the powers they are using.Mad Science unavailable because contact with Richard is inconsistent/he's away with the Vilebloods who are an inch away from joining the club and murderfucking us and he doesn't want them to do that to him.Extra: Help Clora with figuring out a transmission method that Richard can understand.What was Clora's project exactly? Figuring out how to integrate new biological discoveries into our mutants? Is an action required to actually have those integrated?
Rolled 33>>27699820Voting for this
Rolled 34>>27699695How about we just say that all the hivemind's actions in this thread (this one, not the last) are annulled because it was scrambled by the persistent outages?
Rolled 32>>27699376Walord Slag's bandits are ALL of the bandit forces we had under our direct control, right?
Rolled 91>>27703998Direct control yes. His only known loyalty requirement was for you to NOT act tactically retarded. >>27703980Trying to escape poor decisions user? I have made it plenty clear that I don't pull my punches.
>>27704604The most frustrating thing is that the noise and the fireworks and etc. to lure the monsters was a brilliant plan...and just no one thought to fix the ONE aspect that made it a fuckawful one.... So yes, trying to escape poor decisions because I didn't make them.
>>27704604Anyway, can you estimate what Witch Luna's reaction when she finds out that we intentionally annihilated one of our allied bandit bases? And can you confirm whether or not we have a Mad Science action?
Rolled 89>>27704627Unknown Witch Luna was never one for sharing. I can say she will most likely keep her distance for now. You do have a mad science action.
>>27704658Alright, then I believe consensus is this action >>27699820And add the Mad Science action:Richard integrates Clora's information into his work, or develops a means of understanding it.
Rolled 26>>27704704Rolling for mad science.
Rolled 87>>27704658So was Clora integrating updates in mutations into our mutants, or just researching how to do so and now we have to implement them?In tandem with that, is Clora currently occupied with any projects of her own? Did she ever finish force-evolving her brood?Is Richard still occupied coming up with a god-tier multiadvantage symbiont?
Rolled 33>>27704883She was identifying said mutations on a specatucarly painful level to allow upgrades followed by biomods then finally symbionts to enhance. First however she had to know the mutations inside and out. Finally she then plans to update them but that will knock out our forces while the changes occur.Clora'Zel is indeed has her own project which apparently hurts like hell. As for force evolving she did indeed finish it.Richard is working his symbiotic magic. Now however designing symbionts to enhance preexisting mutations. Unless someone comes up with some other idea that he may work on(which is always a good thing).
Rolled 95>>27699820Clora has absorbed the super cells and is beginning to identify them. She states that they appear to come in 2 varieties basic typical cells and modified ones that can be used to create things. Prophet is still working on the psionic stealth he has an idea to add on something to it but cannot figure out how reduce the strain of its usage.Tabula Rasa states he figured out how a amplifier might work. Problem is it would be INCREDIBLY difficult as you would have to prevent backlash, burnout, and somehow make the crystals produce enough excess energy as to be useful much less tap into it. Psionic batteries are not quite as complicated. Richard is busy trying to understand the info Clora'Zel but isn't having much luck....Month 193Monster Mayhem ends in 2 turns.>>>>>A.

Rolled 63>>27705007Somewhere in Richard's quarters having take a nap(rebooting) awoke to find himself next to Clora'Zel..."Richard I finally figured out how I can fix an issue I am having and let you understand that data its just that well....WAHHHH-So why is Richard screaming and running out of his quarters naked this time, muttered Super Soldier.I have feeling it has something to do with that spike impaling and dragging him uh down the hallway it seems, stated the other Super Soldier.Ah should we save him?Considering the Hivemind isn't freaking out I would say that is a no.Lovely. Indeed quite nice isn't it?Do you think he will be mad though?Bah is already crazy if he gets payback is basically just going to be a free update Sunday. Ah very well then.
Rolled 37>>27705007What's your estimate on how many resources are going to be required to repair the base have the Monster Mayhem is through? Our poorly thought out distraction at least got them away from us, then they stampeded outwards from the swamp anyway so our base shouldn't be too damaged right?>Basic 1Allow Clora to upgrade mutations and/or create biomods, her preference.>Basic 2Tabula should assist the Prophet in improving Psionic Stealth/reducing its strain. See if crystals can help.>Basic 3Maor resources to Clora.>Mad ScienceCarry on, Sweet Richard.Ask him if he's considered taking symbiote technology and combining it with the borg spiders we have as an easy means of manufacturing them. Alternately, if he's thought about inventing some that would be of use to Nova King, something that challenging would likely involve a good bit of science.For other projects, the worm defense project that was mentioned a while ago? I'll find the info and copy+paste it in a few minutes. Also, maybe devising an organ that produces a forcefield or allows the user to direct electricity? He could study the way Nova King does it. Obviously Nova King isn't currently available I thought Richard was over with the Vile Bloods, in his personal labs. Has Clora'Zel figured out teleportation?
Rolled 85>>27705282Here's the worm defense project.Fortify the base: Biological defenses, an intricate tunnel network crisscrossing around an area just outside the base's outermost perimeter inhabited by worms. The worms live in the pre-made tunnel network most of the time, expanding it slowly using saliva that hardens into a very weak cement on contact with water. They breed and multiply, slowly expanding the tunnel network as their population increases always just enough for their needs. Mostly they're peaceful and docile, feeding on various funguses and lichens suited to grow in their (remarkably dry) home. Their tunnels are not, however, strong enough to stand the shaking of ground when...say, a mass infantry advance is underway, or large vehicles are advancing. At such times the tunnel networks begin to fracture, driving the worms into masses at the points of greatest damage, desperately trying to keep the specially adapted plants of their home alive, even at the expense of their own. The water of the swamp, you see, reacts with the alkaline bodies of the worms. Normally this isn't such a big deal, it introduces small amounts of clean water into the tunnel system for the plants to feed on, an strengthening the surrounding network where ever there's a leak.En masse, however, the salts and heat from masses of worms being flooded in water combined with fractured (often powdered) tunnel material mixes together into an...EXPLOSIVE EXPERIENCE! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!tl;dr Worms living around the base that turn into fuckmassive mines when large groups of enemies advance towards us. We avoid it by having specially reinforced roads to move in/out on, or by having Clora design a beast that distributes a neutralizing chemical underground that stays on standby until we need to walk out.
Rolled 60>>27705282Its actually surprisingly quiet at our base this turn Monster Mayhem wise. Spill over from the swamp is just beginning. You will have to ask Clora'Zel about the apparent teleportation.
>>27705339Can we ask Clora'Zel about the apparent teleportation? Did she have some brood over at that base and just took over it? Or did she go through the tunnels? Poor Richard is about to feel the inside of a Brood Queen.>>27705312It's too bad Torg died because of idiocy...(would he have been able to at least run if he was in his boom city?) my plan was always for him to turn his hand to that for extra power and awesomeness.
Rolled 9>>27705664She went through the tunnels. According to her brood. Lets hope not user.
Rolled 76>>27706411Man I hate running on Sat and Sun but 4chan was going crazy.
Rolled 93>>27704616Achilles was a brilliant warrior too, except nobody bothered to check his heels
Rolled 31>>27705664It's too bad we chose super cells over virtual immortality.
Rolled 39>>27705282Supporting and rolling for Mad Science
Rolled 71>>27706645Idk, it's likely that whole ninjutsu effect thing would occur and heroic sacrifices would be less effective. Or there are limits that we haven't heardOn the otherhand i get the feeling well never be able to trade for it again.Still, we should probably set to capitalizing copies our heroes souls>>27705282VOTE
Rolled 91>>27705282Clora amazingly grumpy that whatever she did didn't work went about fiddling with biomods to enhance mutations.Prophet figured out how to upgrade the stealth so that it also effects non psi users. That was when Tabula showed up introducing a new crystal that he stated has 2 variants Stealth crystals and battery packs. Prophet was most pleased stating that we got the strain problem figured out if we use crystals or can even allow not to powerful or even non psi users to benefit form the enhanced psionic stealth. Mad ScienceRichard thought about creating alkaline worms it ended up blowing up a section of his lab. But according to Richard he got formula figured out now. So he sent the data to Clora'Zel.Month 194Monster Mayhem ends in 1 turn>>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>>E.

Rolled 36>>27706962NewsCarl has come by for some reason.The lost heroes have returned, except for Warlord Slag ans witch.
>>27706571I think the more synonymous bit in this instance would be that no one bothered to notice that Achilles was striking Patroclus.
Rolled 80Hey Dr- I am Richard we got the stuff back you wanted by the way how did you breakout of lab and end up back again so quickly, asked Super Soldier.Long story now I heard-RICHHHAAARD.Oh fuck no not again, muttered whispered trying to make a quick gettaway. I FIGURED OUT WHY IT DIDN'T WORK.NNOOO, screamed Richard as we was dragged along down the hallway. hm looks like I wont have to get payback after all, butted in Carl. The Two super soldiers look at him.Payback?Yup...sorta doubt I can top a brood queens wrath.Indeed. So first thing is first anyone wanna bet if Richard here has a mommy issues or something?The two super soldiers looked at each other. A pot has begun on what underlying issues does Richard have(Major bonus if you get it right).
>>27706962No free military actions or bandit actions any more because Warlord Slag is actively working to kill us.>Basic 1Let Clora have some more resources for whatever she's doing...>Basic 2Finish up the design for/start a small production run of psy-stealth devices that we can equip Wil, Alexis, and our best scouts with.>Basic 3Have the Prophet and Tabula look into boosting the range/detail/benefits of our hivemind. Maybe using crystals as sort of communications relays, for ultra-long distance work, maybe using crystals to help grant members even better coordination or allow them to lend members in trouble strength.>Mad ScienceUhm...Richard help Clora I guess.So who wants to guess what issues Richard has?
>>27707077Ask Carl why he came back.
Rolled 96>>27707188He states its because someone else couldn't make it. So he is here in their stead, though he did arrive early.
>>27707077We should probably secure a tunnel route between our base and Richard's. We should also try to get some means of secure transportation between Base Burke and Lair EDE. Base Burke, for instance, has excess food. Lair EDE has low food. Just saying.
>>27707278Ask him if he knows anything about the Reaver Convention, we get the feeling they're planning something.By the way, we're supposed to treat the interludes you give us at places we couldn't possibly be as the hivemind scrying there right?
Rolled 30>>27707315The writefaggotry is the closet thing your ever gonna get when it comes to oracle/scrying."Reaver convention huh yeah I heard about that they got their shit wrecked by Vass despite no longer being a Reaver from what I understand though they are after something...as in you. As you fuckers were the last ones to have anything to do with Voss. So your sorta on the top of Vass's list now that the Reavers got taken care of."
>>27707350Mmm, so we have a bunch of hero-tier bandits coming after us at the behest of a uber-hero-tier bandit and a hero-tier bandit warlord who's intimately familiar with us gunning for us too, this not even mentioning the bandits (complete with their heroes) that were after us before.Good game guys, not sure that we have any fate points left/that they would be enough to get us out of this one.
>>27707350Vass has been recruiting or killing all of the bandits and mutants that are usually distributed through the swamp, hasn't he?
Rolled 34>>27707394The bandits stay the FUCK away from Vass. Mutants on the other hand have been joining Vass. Apparently Vass has undergone the rites and proved most worthy. >>27707381Sad part is this wasn't even suppose to be the end game enemy. This was mid game.
Rolled 12>>27707426Yeah, but then we turned everyone against us.
Rolled 57>>27707454And our mistakes caught up with us.
Rolled 59>>27707454Ah well I am sure you can figure a way out of it user. >>27707464To be fair you made a lot but that wasn't really a problem except for the whole repeating many of them.
Rolled 33>>27707478In any case though I hope some users will stick around until the end I would hate for it to end on such a poor note. Plus I will just run another Civ afterwards. Same setting different place.
Rolled 4>>27707478For the next quest you should leave the memor where they were right before the Extreme Monster Mayhem, but make them operate in a sneaky fashion like we should've been doing."Sir, we've lost contact with our outlying bases. Something about comrades turning into tall, pale, beautiful women with symbiotic worms attached to them and killing everyone with fire breath.Reports of a massive waves of monsters, zombies and ghouls swamping our other bases sir.Sir, our entire comms grid just went down. Something about flesh-machine spiders digging the wires out....MEMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRR!!!!!!"
Rolled 12>>27707502Or I could just write fag the end if no one wants to play till then and just start a new civ or something.
>>27707502we cant leave you EDE we know that you love us even tho you hurt us. we understand that we deserve this punishment. yay battered spouse syndrome!
Rolled 42>>27707553He didn't want to do this to us, but we just couldn't stop doing 'dumb' things so now he has to teach us a lesson...
Rolled 40>>27707544I, for one, won't give up the fight. (I put waaaaaaaay too much time into searching through archived threads to figure out we were going to be attacked from below, then to find out what researchable items we had available, then to find out all the heroes and their abilities to give up now)
Rolled 59>>27707544Anyway, how is the area around our base doing for monsters? Mostly clear? If so, I'm going to modify the action list.
Rolled 61>>27707567>>27707567...I have been trying to teach you a lesson the ENTIRE FUCKING TIME I even gave you access to an overpowered hero to encourage you to play smart. The only way to lose him was being an idiot. Guess what happened. The only thing different now is that its all starting to come crumbling down. In any case what is consensus?>>27707587You I like you.
>>27707606dont be too hasty! hiding has been the only part of our plan that hasnt backfired horribly yet
Rolled 10>>27707606Monsters creeped back but they are mostly stragglers. As EXTREME Deep Monster Mayhem is about to end.
Rolled 63>>27707632Once it ends...muwhahhahHWHAHAHAHH.
heres a thought: how about we dont fill all the land around our base with tunnels that are designed to colapse then explode when forces are moved over them because our troops have weight also unless you have forgotten that
Rolled 75>>27707646So Warlord Slag what is this I hear about you leaving the Memor?I lost half my forces and 2/3s of my bases thanks to their surprisngly clever yet idiotic plan. I would join the bandits to kill them as payback but old Irewin requested that I take care of his ghouls. That is why Witch. Oh your joining the Ghoulish Legions?Yup...So how likely is it they will survive?Zilch. You know how what the bandits did the Super Mutants?Yeah.Imagine that but focused a single target.So THAT what the true meaning of being fucked is.Yup. What about the ghouls? Once zombies are done bandits are the next feed. Unless I get in the way.Oh my you don't plant to-Slag smiled, yes I do. Yes I do. >>27707539You best pray I never use the Memor against you in a later civ. Cause I have an excellent idea of what they would do.
Rolled 6>>27707646Oh? Not so fast.>>27707688That issue was addressed, twit. We'll find a way of limiting them before implementation so they stay confined to predictable zones, we'll also either have reinforced roadways or a fleshbeast that prevents the explosions from occurring for our troops.>Basic 1Send out scouts with Tabula Rasa, Wil, some of the psy-stealth devices, some of Tabula's psi-optic scopes, and a few of the crystal golems into the Wastes. The psi-optic scopes might let us find Psi-Corps bases through their obfuscation fields, the golems and Tabula are there to entice them.Their task is to tell them that we have a large crystal grove in our base, but that we're about to come under major attack so we need assistance. We'll give them just about anything they want short of Tabula Rasa, mention that we have biological technology, bioborg technology, anything we need to to help.>Basic 2Send out a large force of scouts (along with a few strongarms) to EVE, also requesting assistance. Tell her about Richard and EDE and anything else that might help.>Basic 3Clora does whatever she was trying to that didn't work but now should.>Mad ScienceRichard works with Clora doing whatever those two do.Please let us assume direct control when our troops get to EVE's base and encounter PsiCorp forces respectively.

Rolled 62>>27707798Oh, send Ramona with Basic 2.>>27707614I wondered why Warlord Slag gave us a free military AND free bandit action AND was an expert tactician.
Rolled 97>>27707798 Blatantly fishing for a 100. Anyway, I have to leave for a little while. Hopefully it won't turn out so bad this time. On the other hand, there's a new Civ. to look forward to.How about Corporate Remnants who specialized in space systems? Giant Space HQ!!!
Rolled 51>>27707883Oh you only know the half of it user. >>27707798Scouts have been deployed to try and find this 'psicorp' out in the wastes. Hopefully they are discovered and will help before its too late. Duration unknown.Scouts deployed to EVE Facility. Duration 5 turns.Clora'Zel is immensely pleased and no longer in agony...but decided she needed to tell Richard something(last chance to guess his issues you get 3 tries).Direct control requested for scouts.

>>27708080Richard's issues guess:Being abandoned alone fighting a horrific foe for a couple centuries and having to butcher his friends in order to fight it, and now it loves him and wants to protect him and be with him all the time so he's understandably a bit psychologically shaken?
Rolled 43>>27708172Amusing but no that is not entirely it. Got another 2 strikes users.
Rolled 3>>27708248In any case I need the plans for the Hivemind while you are off controlling the scouts.

If get it correct you will get a major bonus as well.Free hintIt has to do with family and it is not immideatly on the top of the usual list of said family issues.

I will fight to the death to see them away on the highest note they can be singing (and not a swan song).I will also listen like hell to dissenting voices of reason because for fucks sake we need more of that.
>>27708248Richard as created/co-created/ or otherwise is believed by Clora parental relation to one of his/clora's monstrosities that she feels he is completely apathethic to in regards to an unethical methods toward said "child"?
>>27709315Uhm...clean up your grammar and repost, I'm not quite sure I can tell what you mean.
>>27709355Richard is doing something to do a "child" (creation) of either his or Clora's that Clora (or both of theres), and she vehemently dissaproves or has recently learned he was doing behind his back

Rolled 40>>27709399NewsGhouls were getting riled up and mean until Clora'Zel came out grumpy. They were refusing to listen so for once instead of the carrot she brought out the stick...monsters that would normally happily eat babbies in front of their mothers were brought to heel and started acting remarkably polite. She did something to them I swear...The bandit forces are mobalizing in mass. Ghoulish Legions have pushed out attacking the zombie hives before they can recover from the onslaught. Super Mutant Mobile Bases are moving in odd patterns sweeping the swamp for some reason.WARNING WARNING A Mobile Fortress has been detected heading this way user...signatures indicate that it was the one that was supposedly nearly destroyed oh so long ago. Somehow it has been brought back online.
Rolled 27>>27709463Other then Ramona yes.
Rolled 49>>27709282>>27709207I share your pain anon.Also you better help think of something good or we're fucked. This time you'll understand if we scrutinize it to hell and back.
>>27709495They're looking for Mora'Zel/Clora'Zel's sister who came down to the swamp.
Rolled 70>>27709579>Scrutinize it to hell and backI would like nother more than thatI-I'm just afraid of planning after the thought of the end of Memor being on my hands.I have idea's, but they're mostly last stand idea's. We'd leave a legacy but not the kind i'm after.
Rolled 1>>27709640keep those in handy at least, we may get the chance to use them
Rolled 72>>27709697>can't tell if dice gods approve or dissaprove of last standwait, whatanyway, I'm thinking.
>>27709640I'm on the same page. Everything I can think of is last-ditch maneuvers, where even if we win we lose. We just don't have enough information to do much clever stuff. First priority if we survive this or in the next Civ. will be to get a goddamn sensor network laid out so we don't have to waste actions scouting. >>27709697Turn off your dice when you aren't rolling for actions plz.>>27709399What sort of instructions do you mean we need to leave? We kind of broadly stated "Repair, bunker down." What do you want exactly? Keep in mind, we've gotten dicked over for being vague quite a few times.
Rolled 51>>27709495Meanwhile somewhere deep underground...So...when is our eldest sister Zar'Xel going to get here asked Mora'Zel.How am supposed to know, muttered Alkazal.Finally got away from your 'projects' sister?Indeed I just can't quite wrap my head around this 'metal' and 'technology'. I never understood that sister why say no to a good thing we already having going?To understand of course so that way I can counter it and even use it against them....seems like a lot of work for when you can just unleash countless tides of enemies.I thought you wouldn't understand you are after the most classic of our lot.Yes but it kinda sad that not even Clora'Zel is here yet I mean we ARE in meeting in her hive for the sake of convenience. I know exactly how fee-who the fuck are you, screeched Mora'Zel rising herself up at the appearance of Carl.Woah ladies I am just here for your cousin who couldn't show.Oh the black sheep, muttered Mora'Zel.Oh quiet Mora our dearest cousin didn't choose how it would come to be after all. Anyway dear uh represantive why can't our dearest cousin attend?Too busy dealing with guard, hunger, and different forces you know the usual.My my our cousin is quite busy.Pretty much.Still though must admit you smell so delicious makes me want to take a bite.Hah you smell damn good too.>>27709697Aw a wasted 1.>>27709752Anything else beyond that?
>>27709752>First priority if we survive this or in the next Civ. will be to get a goddamn sensor network laid out so we don't have to waste actions scouting. You act like we haven't been hellbent on doing that since day one.Tectus, spiders, buggers. Nothing seems to work.I proposed laying electronic sensors eons ago, but something or other it was shot down.
>>27709792It seems to me that they'd probably do better the less instruction we gave them. Have the heroes take over things and do what they think is best.
>>27709801I remember that, I can't recall why it was shut down.
>>27709903Because we're Memor that's why!W-we don't need none of that.Anyway gonna post some last ditch scenarios. For what they're worth Please somebody else come up with a "we actually plan to live through this one" plan.
>>27709963>Crystal machines endgame. Use what remaining supplies we have, and plant them everywhere>If we can't have this swamp, neither will they!>We plant them all around the swamp, with perpetual energy supplies, and retreat to our bunkers for the remainder of our feeble existence while above the monsters reign freeor>Spread our legacy>You did your duties everyone, it was a good run. Didrickson, Alexis is like a daughter to us and you a son. Take care of her (and Ramona if you can). In the Memor fashion, be fruitful and multiply>Richard, Clora, it 'twas us who found you and ended your stagnate conflict. We rode on your combined achivements, tried to use if for our own, but as our time may draw to an end you two must survive and reach your fullest potential. All that is ours that you can take, though truth be told all that is ours is your doing and yours. Take it with you (and Nova Kong). Be fruitful and multiply.>Tabula Rasa, Prophet, oh the unspoken thousands of words of praise we owe you. Learn from our lesson, herald our mistakes and glories. Find another one to lead. May our dreams of peace and prosperity be realize in them through you.or>Game Over>EDE, for what is worth we will download copies of you, and Burks, programs and disseminating it to all those with the technological capability to recognize it. In particular the forces of Dr. Volk>Perhaps the base, or even our people, can avoid unessary destruction under the wings of another power.
>>27710040Those are depressing thoughts
Rolled 76>>27709792A long while later stuck between the bickering of two sisters Carl was busy trying to figure out the best way of removing his brain without killing himself so he didn't have to put up with it anymore. About time you show up Zar'Xel, complained Mora'Zel. Sorry, sorry its just that I ran into an old witch who I hadn't seen in a such a long time. We got caught up with catching up on how each other were doing.Weren't you the one who got the Super Mutants panties in a bunch?yeah sorry about that its just that entire portion of swamp...cleared. Figured that would make you avoid it considering no place to hide and all. I know I know its just to tempting for me. Finally get a crack at whatever was being concealed or worked on. In any case oh Clora'Zel about time you show up this is evne your own lair anyway how are you-Oh FUCK SHE IS QUEEN wtf WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE OR BE FORCED TO BOW DOWN, screamed out Mora'Zel....I don't believe in forcing all to become One...I wut?Well well Sister looks like her oddness just saved us Mora so shut up, stated Zar'Xel More importantly though what is that little...tike with you?This is my daughter, clora'Zel said introducing her.My god she is already popping out entirely new broods, muttered Mora'Zel under her breath. Ah I wouldn't get to close to Alkazal little one she can can't stand even her own brood, warned Zar'Zel.Son of a bitch, stated Mora'Zel upon witnessing the unbelievable. The heartless frozen harpy is actually...fuck I don't how to describe it even mentally.And thus the family reunion continued between such being that even the elder gods like cthulu would of considered themselves in good company. Meanwhile Carl was considering ending it right there toying with is gun even he a mere mindless being can only withstand so much from such nightmarish horrors.
>>27709399Trying to think of a victory contingency plan, hang on.
>>27710115>FUCK SHE IS QUEEN>My god she is already popping out entirely new broods>This is my daughter, Clora'Zel said introducing her.Did we help her do that? Yay
>>27709399Okay, some idea's.>Voss is NOT deadHe isn't. Vass knows this. We believe it.We could send Didrickson and Alexis to hunt him down, bring him as proof of his being alive to Vass himself>Supermutant mobile baseCrystal machine it? Beg the "family reunion" to destroy the remainder of their great enemy who killed the heart?Are those the only two killer threats after us?
Rolled 19>>27710241There is two...no make that 3 more actually. If you want you can try and get the family reunion to take care of the problem. At the moment there is no less then 4 no wait Clora'Zel had a kid 5 broods in the swamp vicinity.
Rolled 48>>27710286More threats I mean.
>>27710327Can you tell them again? or are some of them hidden on purpose?
Rolled 66>>27710366Bandits, underground, and the Guard. I would say zombies but they never seemed to directly target us quite yet.
>>27710391>BanditsWe could turn to the Hillbilly's for assistance. At the cost of sending Alexis to help Didrickson hunt for Vass, we send her as representantive and plead our cause.The great hunter will have to go alone for Voss. (but this is an incentive for both to suceed and make it alive)>undergroundThe ever present never ending battle sitting under us. We do have richard's advanced sprayers and spiders. A last great clash of tunnel warriors. We could also try. . .contacting the psionic presence that is sometimes felt down there (or did we already discover that)>GuardAre they not also the great enemy of all brood? Mora fought them well, heck I was hoping her wrecking their supply convoys would make them a nonfactor for a while.Come to think of it, the Supermutants have 1 mobile fortress.If negotiations goes well, we can ask that the Queen teach her daughter how to be a proper fighting broodmother against the last mobile fortress of their ancestral enemy. While the four other broodmothers go for the guard under Mora.
Rolled 97>>27710570We never discovered what lurked underground. Confirm hero sent to Vass if so which?>>27710570How do you plan to get the Broodmothers help?
>>27710570These are good suggestions. Wish some more anons were here to look at them.
>>27710570The Hillybillies won't be persuaded into miring themselves in our clusterfuck, I don't think. Especially not after how we've shown we treat our allies.The psionic presence isn't necessarily underground...right now I'm leaning towards it being a broodmother-esque thing in the mega city who is particularly psionic.They're an enemy of the brood, sure...but why would they attack them now? To save us? Why do they care?As for looking for Voss...I don't know. Maybe. Why would he come back to us though?
>>27710635>We never discovered what lurked underground. Exactly. It's time we did.>Confirm hero sent to Vass if so which?Not until I get some more voices to look at it>How do you plan to get the Broodmothers help?Oration. Appealing to Clora, who can appeal to her kin.
Rolled 29>>27710704Her kin doesn't like Clora'Zel at all. Your going to need something better then that.
>>27710675>The Hillybillies won't be persuaded into miring themselves in our clusterfuckNot if we can Alexis to try and send them every last bottle of Memor Mojo with the fact that this will be wiped from the world should the bandits suceed.Not allies, business partners Plus I'm hoping we can tap into their last grudge against the bandits> Why do they care?We have to try to make them care.>Why would he come back to us though?I didn't saying willingly. Didrickson is an adept hunter.
Rolled 14>>27710729First of all the Hillbillies are busy fight their own war with the bandits if they helped us it would be a fight on TWO fronts.Plus Voss is someone who even Vass respects.
>>27710729If he doesn't come willingly then we have the Reaver Convention+Vass+One more reaver all pissed at us.
>>27710722Well, I'm hoping we can try to appeal to them as well.Some of them want to find out more about technology, we can grant it to them.Resources, a nest? We will serve them, as we have served Clora and she served us.See how we have helped Clora reach where she is now, and in time we can help them make such achievements.
>>27710775> if they helped us it would be a fight on TWO fronts.Hmm, damned.>>27710784Or . . .we have two reunited and happily depart on bigger fish to fry? If only.Maybe Didrickson can at least try diplomacy.At this stage, all we can do as the universe implodes on us is cry out and hope somebody listens.
Rolled 32I m>>27710788...You want to offer yourselves to the Broods? You do know that would mean this Civ ends right? The memor might will survive but the Memoran Hivemind will be no more.
>>27710838>You do know that would mean this Civ ends right?Doesn't look like any other option would be different. Heh, at least this one ensures the survival of our race.I'll keep that as yet another "last ditch effort" on the table then.
Rolled 98>>27710838If it is agreed then I will writefag it. One thing I can say though user the Memor will survive to degree through the genetics offered to the brood and whatever Clora'Zel decides to do.
>>27710898Yeah, no. Not like that.
>>27710898Clora is so much more powerful than we are...Holy shit hitting that 100 to persuade her and Richard to our side was probably the best thing to ever happen to us.
>>27710898NOPEWe will survive this, I swear it!
>>27710921>Clora is so much more powerful than we areAnd we helped her and Richard get there. For all our mistakes, our idiocy, they would be naught but two immortals battling till judgement day or SWH's gets to them were it not for us.We are also still her brood. It's got to count for something. I am not in approval of ending the game by joining the brood yet.
Rolled 54>>27710910The Memor would survive to degree Clora'Zel is very motherly in that regard. Basically though the Memor of old(/tg/) would be no more. They would however most likely survive. Especially if momma Clora decides to get dirty.>>27710921In the very beginning you would of suffered VERY HEAVY losses to kill her, then she evolved and could take on the Prophet on even ground. Without even getting physical if she did so she would win. Then she evolved AGAIN.
>>27710898I guess that our orders for the basecamp and everyone at it areRepair the base and fortifyTrain/prepare for the coming stormHave Nova do his best to slow everyone's movement using his elemental powersI don't know, want to launch a last-ditch attempt to try and find some secret in the tunnels? If we agree to throw all our military might into helping the brood-meeting going on downstairs help find their mother's secrets then we could probably get their assistance.And if we got their assistance that might just be enough to survive this shitstorm.
Rolled 55>>27711006The underground is hilariously hostile you cannot even really handle the surface yet even what makes you think you can survive dealing with what lurks under user?As for the mother's secrets good idea but how do you plan to find them out? She IS dead along with the Arch Brood King.
>>27711006>Have Nova do his best to slow everyone's movement using his elemental powersHmm, maybe we can channel all our psionic power and crystals into having him summon a hurricane the likes of which the world has never seen.
>>27710898>>27710974>The Memor would survive to degree Clora'Zel is very motherly in that regard. Basically though the Memor of old(/tg/) would be no more. They would however most likely survive. Especially if momma Clora decides to get dirty.Presuming we were to entertain that idea, how much of the Memor culture would be lost? What happened to the hive-mind?Can we at least build them their promised home in the swamp, as planned?
>>27711034Oh yeah, we can't handle the tunnels even little bit I'm aware. But hey, maybe our huge streams of blood would be enough for the broods' fleshbeast monstrosities to slide into the central base on.>>27711085Eh-heh heh heh. We're at the point where even big psionics are an option again. Man we've fucked ourselves royally. That's a good idea, but we don't have power amplifying crystals. We could probably improve the storm power with shitloads of batteries and all of the memor channeling into Nova King though.
>>27711130>Man we've fucked ourselves royally.If there's one thing can be said, the Memor are a kickass people.We have spawned more badass heroes in this swamp than you can shake a fist at.Every waking moment, we do nothing but kickass. Even when we're not kicking our enemies asses, we're kicking our own asses.
Rolled 95>>27711113Memor culture would be remembered but not entirely lost. The hivemind in its current form(/tg/ and such) would fail. As for their promised home this A.I. does not know. Quite luckily depending on how thinks pan out.
Rolled 6>>27711164Oh god so true,HAHHAH. Fuck makes me want to see what the next Civ will pan out.
>>27711188He's completely right, we go too long without fucking someone then we have to fuck ourselves. Shit, maybe Torg was just too impatient to go near an enemy base and that's why he set everything off.Memor are the only truly Chaotic Evil nation.
Rolled 87>>27711236....my god I always wondered how a chaotic Evil nation would work...turns out the Memor would describe it to the fucking T hah. That is even funnier.
>>27711006>>27711236So, how do we use our heroes to the fullest extent?Do we send didrickson to hunt for Voss and at least find proof he is alive, to satiate Vass?Should we try to communicate with the underground presence?Should we begin negotiations with the brood meeting?What allies can we make a desperate call to?
>>27711273For all the evil we've done, we have a strange aversion to slaves though, and all our members only join voluntarily.Yeah, definitely chaotic evil.
Rolled 32Lurking, not gonna to add to the discussion because I have no fucking clue, but this shit is depressing.
Rolled 1>>27711385Please discuss anon at this rate the civ might in out of sheer inaction.
Rolled 46>>27711396oh cocks
>>27711359>we have a strange aversion to slaves though, and all our members only join voluntarily.Well, that's more of a byproduct of hivemindism.
Rolled 67>>27711396I huh fine dice gods don't agree with inaction at ALL crit fail random event it is then. >>27711406As in join or die slaves don't exist in a truly chaotic society. All must bow down. Those who don't are well...
>>27711396>>27711396Note, if we are to die this turn we choose to surrender to Clora and set off the massive crystal "FUCK YOU" machine to the swamp.Also >>You did your duties everyone, it was a good run. Didrickson, Alexis is like a daughter to us and you a son. Take care of her (and Ramona if you can). In the Memor fashion, be fruitful and multiply>>Richard, Clora, it 'twas us who found you and ended your stagnate conflict.

May our dreams of peace and prosperity be realize in them through you.>>EDE, for what is worth we will download copies of you, and Burks, programs and disseminating it to all those with the technological capability to recognize it. In particular the forces of Dr. Volk, EVE, and other corporate/gov remnants>>Perhaps the base, or even our people, can avoid unessary destruction under the wings of another power.
>>27711348We've already made desperate calls to PsiCorp and Eve, but those will both probably end up fizzling. EVE likely would've helped us a long time ago if there weren't some sort of shackles on her, and PsiCorp likely built or is at least aware of the crystal grove in the wasteland so they don't have any particular reason to help us.I guess we could maybe send someone over to the Glowz Krew, but they don't like us that much and we've been awful dicks to bandits in general forever.We have 1 Marauder bombing run available, I think.I thought we sent Wil off with the people to PsiCorp because he has a diplomacy bonus, but I guess not.We should begin negotiations with the brood meeting. Let's start by asking them what they want.As for our heroes...sending Wil and/or Alexis out to find Voss seems like as good an idea as any. Supercharging Nova King and making a giant storm sounds like a fairly good idea given the situation too, that'd prevent air forces from operating (including our marauders, mind you) and slow people down maybe allowing EVE and/or PsiCorp and/or Glowz Krew to make it to us in time.
>>27711463I whole heartedly agree.Presuming the critfail gives us a chance.
Rolled 88>>27711396WARNING WARNINGA blockade has formed around our base made up of Mobile Bases.Reavers have been detected in the tunnels around Burks Bunker. The Super Soldiers are doing what they can to hold them off. Reavers detected around our ghoulish dens and Brood Hives.
>>27711458Fuck that, if we are to die this turn then we launch all of the virus at everyone, we supercharge Nova King with the hivemind and the crystals and have him make a storm that will level the swamp, we throw our 10 mini-reactors at people, we call in our marauder airbombing run on everyone, we sacrifice ourselves to make a route to the Heart of the Swamp so the broods can get the secrets there and kill everyone, AND we set off a psionic-deterrence field as big as we can build it.
Rolled 98MFW /tg/ comes up with some really dasterdly evil last FUCK YOU shit. If only you were this good about tactics/strategies, ideas and even coming up with how to combine it you wouldn't have to use them...
>>27711534We do come up with good tactics/stragies.It's just our talent for FUCK YOU seeps into them, and hoists us by our own petards.
Rolled 75>>27711579That and never remembering to scout it out first. Seriously amazed at how many times that mistake was repeated.In any case actions? Cause it seems that so far that you want to do a last stand of pure FUCK YOU kind of deal. If so need to know what you plan to do exactly.
>>27711508Can't we do that and ensure the survival of our speices?Or at least our heroes.I don't want to see them all die with us. Let them live.
Rolled 763>>27711620If I roll a 1000, can I get a free ticket out of jail?
Rolled 64>>27711665Start working on a plan then. >>27711679the Dice Gods didn't agree. So that is a no.
Rolled 41>>27711620>>27711006I vote this. Bide our time, but keep our hands on the button.Channel all our power into Nova King to summon storms, earthquakes, floods of biblical proportions
Rolled 64>>27711507Oh, fuck it.I vote for initiate this.>>27711508Call in the Marauders to bomb everyone now, don't tell them about the incoming storm but wait until after their bombs are dropped to launch it. I don't care if they get caught in the storm, it's not like we'll be around to get retaliated against.Tell the Marauders to get into contact with Glowy Joe and the Glowz Krew before they head in though. Tell them the biggest most glowy battle ever is about to go down in the swamp. Lotsa dakka and choppy like you neva seen before.In the meantime, have everyone be charging up psionic batteries, and immediately after the Marauders have dropped their last bomb start the storm. The whole hivemind, the prophet, tabula, etc. AND all the batteries should be used to boost Nova King.Toss our mini-reactors strapped with explosives out at the blockade of mobile bases, fuck them with nuclear-fusion fire. If that's not doable then strap them all together at the middle of Lair EDE and set them off when the most enemies are inside the walls.In the meantime, have the Prophet and Tabula and whoever else building a bigger, stronger version of the psionic deterrence field. I want the monsters going 3 times as crazy, and 30 zombie hordes to come at us this time instead a paltry 5.Tell the brood-meeting downstairs that we will devote our entire military might, excepting the troops that need to man our walls, to fighting through the tunnels to let them get at their mother's secrets, but only if they swear our enemies will be the first ones they convert into biomass.Our heroes are free to leave or stay as they please after they've done the last requests of the hivemind. They can have whatever wealth they want, and we wish them well.
Rolled 93>>27711758Wait >>27711756we can still hang on threads of hope that someone out there will save us.Hold onto hope, until last of the evils of Pandora's box is unleashed.
Rolled 48>>27711809We are holding out, that is just a move to prepare the big end.>>27711758Approving of this, we'll enact the psionic field at the last moment.
Rolled 63>>27711809If EVE could of helped she would have me and her go WAY back. As for the psi corps...what happens when they check out the thoughts of hour scouts and see what we did/do?Unless you want to come up with something or figure out to persuade the broods. I don't know.
Rolled 67>>27711847>If EVE could of helped she would have me and her go WAY back.It's why we're planning to send copies of you and burks to her. Or something. I don't know.>As for the psi corps...what happens when they check out the thoughts of hour scouts and see what we did/do?They will see we plan to make this region of the swamp and our Biofacilities and all it's secrets impregnable or destroyed if we are not saved.And the whole, monsters from half way around the country to here.
Rolled 11>>27711899I doubt EDE or Burk will be destroyed. He'll probably high tail it outta here on some secret channels.
>>27711847>Unless you want to come up with something or figure out to persuade the broodsWhat could we possibly do that broods could want to help us?
Rolled 77>>27711938Ah you knows us too well user. >>27712000...huh tech, biomods, genetics, heroes. I don't know user I am an A.I. how do you expect me to understand the alien intelligence of the broods?
>>27712045Can we ask them what they want?
Rolled 16>>27712045>>27711758Well, then why we build the mega cyrstals machine, while our diplomats diplomat, wihle Will and Alexis search for Voss, and while Nova Kong unleashes storms, we should open up diplomacy via Clora's connection to the hivemind.Try all leads to their very ends.
Rolled 21>>27712122The broods hunger and seek to expand to evolve. That is what they are at the most basic.
Rolled 18>>27712155Speaking of the crytals machine, I'd like to incorporate speaker crystals into it and stockpile on some fireforks.Our little distraction was just foreplay, this'll be the real thing.Out with a BOOM, not a whimper. Let's celebrate the fall of the memor when it comes.
>>27712192How about some of the finger biter fish, glowing flower genes, experimental fluids that we never checked out, zombies or ghouls that we have sitting around, crystals, portions of our population?
Rolled 33>>27712155i like it mabey hold off on the crystals for last tho
>>27712192>The broods hunger and seek to expand to evolve. Sounds just like us.Both of us want to expand, evolve. But look how far Clora has gone with our aid, while the others have not. Surely the promise of doing the same for them will be attractive.
>>27712245there are like 5 kinds of death on our doorstep and you wana reasearch? that time has passed
>>27712254Of course. This might be our last chance to build it tho.We can always dissasemble it later. maybe
>>27712287oh just building it? then yes you have my full suport
Rolled 41>>27712155Marauders have begun bombing the bandit bases.Glows Krew are on their way. As they can't say no to good fight especially if its glowy. Reactors have been thrown and detonated on the mobile bases. Psionic crystals have been prepared.Super psionic deterrence field is under construction.Wil and Alexis went looking for Voss. They are not having much luck. As he is LONG gone. Nova Kong has errupted apparently he evolved himself into NOVA King and has begun to whip up a GIGANTIC elemental storm.>>27712270The major difference is the Broods are of One instead of Many. So they would NEVER agree only reason we got Clora'Zel was she was young, innocent, and naive. It would never work on the others.
>>27712277It wasn't research, it was things to offer the broodmothers for their assistance.
>>27711758This is the conensus.>>27711809This is the roll.Open up diplomacy
>>27712331Well this is going to make one hell of an epilogue.
>>27712331We ought to send a box of Memor Mojo to Hillbillies anyway.A playful ploy, also a parting gift."Thanks for fighting the bandits and trade. We're about to be killed by them. Here's some of our last formula."
>>27712333oh my mistake then but other ideas are still better
Rolled 88>>27712400That.Remember those carriers we got years and years ago? They and viroz, unleash them. All of them. everywhere.Load some of their material into the spewers and just hose everything down. The storm will pick them up.Every last contagion, virus, plague, disease we have.
>>27712458Oh yes, this. Brain parasites, viruses, bits and pieces of the Viroz, omnivorous plant seeds, that swarm of flies we have, shoot it up into the storm right before we die or right before they attack.Fuck if we're going to make them regret actually trying to deliver the killing blow on us.

It would never work on the others.We're not asking them to become many, or even accept us. It is a simple economic trade of mutual desires. We will give them things that help them expand and evolve, what they desire of us, and they will help us in exchange.
>>27712562The parting gift should be all of the Memor Mojo we have. We've had the brewery functional for a while and we're not going to need it. No one else even wants the stuff.Tell them it's a last toast, nothing is expected from them, though if they wanted to charge in guns-a-blazin that'd be fine.And yeah, we're willing to do almost anything for the broods to join in the battle. They just need to name their prices.
Rolled 92>>27712331Meanwhile during the family Reunion. So I guess it would be wrong of us not to do something for our dear sister Clora'Zel with the whole hosting us right sisters?They all agreed. In that case I think we can hit two burns with one stone so here is what we can do...Meanwhile in Bandits deploy their forces in mass...Things crawl up from the underground. On the borders of the wastes the alarms began to sound. ITS the GUARD RUN FOR LIVES THEY ARE COMING OH GOD.Fuck cursed the remaining officer at the bases seeing the massive tide of Guard approaching from the wastes. He heard screams on the radio stating that they had even begun pouring into the city. Shit there were even reports of them coming from the swamp in ships from the recently toasted area as well. "how did they know...They shouldn't have been able to."The guard struck when everyone was beaten bloody and they had dispatched the majority of their forces...they were just going to clean up.Reminder if you want to know any secrets or details state it now so I can include it in the epilogue.
>>27712654>The parting gift should be all of the Memor Mojo we have. Almost all.We save one box for our own in the last ditch. Any heroes who happen to stay (though I'd prefer they leave and live on) and our last Memor.Hey, maybe when the enemy come upon the endless orgy they'll let that part live.

Plus you missed the family reunion you know.Ah yes sorry about that. But I need to beat them off so I can crack those facilities plus it when will I be able to get a test scale on this size again, Giggled the CEO hopped down from her seat.Evil. Indeed, by the way did you find Dr. Volk?I did indeed and they have an interesting name for you little girl by the way, stated Carl looking down.Oh really what is it?She who Hungers.PUWAHAH oh god they thought I was that?Yup.Hm guess you were correct about no one expecting the little girl am I right 'Jenny'?Yes you are correct.>>27712562A parting gift to the Hillbillies of all our booze was sent over.Plagues and other bioweapons have been cracked open. Richard even gave us access to his private black listed weapon banks...dear lord he could of ended the world 3 thrice over with just one of these things back during the Pre Fall days. >>27712654The Hillbillies promised that they would indeed celebrate and toast in your name...

>>27712808I'm thinking as many up as a I can.Where did the Prophet come from and what was he?Who will win in this swamp?Is the planet somehow connected by a greater plot, or is everything we've seen limited to this region?What was the end of the world exactly? Was it entirely caused by this swamp or more?>Jenny was SHW and maybe broodmother all alongWhat the FUCK was she? And holy hell I did not in a million years see that.
>>27712765fucking these! also a personal question which idea that the memor had while we were still functional did you think had the most potential but we fucked up?
>>27712850well the last one was just the dice gods shitting on us
>>27712846>plans, actionsYou hurt us EDE, you know this is the end.You know our plans.We are at the mercy of the Brood.The Crystal machine will go off as planned.The plague storm will be unleashed.And gods save the heroes for another nation to meet them*

Really screwed you over in the long run.
I hope at least the Tectus and spiders survive. They were our only original contribution to the swamp.At least even if they are all killed, may they live on through Alexis and Wil. Ramona in there as well, because Memor are into that sort of thing.
Rolled 11Alright beginning to write the Finale. After that there will be the epilogue.
>>27712934Memories of the fallen>Warlord Duel Fists>The Prophet, who sacrificed so much for us.>Remember Ramona FUCK YOU, MARCUS
>>27712948I'm so dissapointed we decided to monsterize the swamp and remove all hopes of the glories and dreams of prosperity.we won't fuck up next time we'll be DAMNED if we do.
>>27712934If you'll notice, he doesn't add his own wallet to the stack of the dead until he sees that the wolves are all around him.
>>27712988Ramona lives!>marcusHeh, even if all of our heroes die only the prodigal son will live.goddamit, that's who's going to inherit our legacy?
>>27712988Memories of Memor.I pray Tabula keeps our collective consciousness safe with him. For someone to view in posterity.The pleasures and the pain. The dreams and the nightmares. The brilliance and the idiocy.
>>27713029I expect the trio of Ramona, Wil, and Alexis to make it out. Ramona will ride in on her massive Mobile-Base Sized Weapons Platform infused with nanobots and EVE's technology leading a swarm of hyper-advanced robots and crystal golems, blast the fuck out of Mortana the Master Pilot and the Mobile Fortress, then she Wil and Alexis will beat a hasty fucking retreat out after making the enemy feel every last drop of Memor blood that they're spilling this day.
>>27713110OP has hinted that the crystals can sense when they're endangered, and will work to help save themselves too. Who knows, maybe they all pile onto Tabula and he becomes a skyscraper-sized golem and annihilates a chunk of the planet with a psionic impulse?
>>27712934 Excellent movie by the way, if anyone cares to watch it.
>>27712948Yeah, that's what we're contributing to the world at large.Combining the finest hunting genes into a super race of hunters the likes of which the world shall never know again.And on the otherside, legendary pilots and tankers without match.A forrest of strange spiders, who shall one day overcome the monsters.And a lone humble golem, walking around, with the memories and souls of his people. Our lasting legacy.
Rolled 71>>27712975Some musichttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1Bda-_atAkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaTA3YLVNeIThe Prophet left his office and took to stand in front of the crowd of his people...he looked over at them heavy hearted that he had failed them so miserably."My people I come to this day to say that young shall be led away. Let the elders awash our selves in the blood of the enemy to redeem ourselves for FAILING our CHILDREN our very PEOPLE. Today we shall rain the hell upon the enemy so they shall ALWAYS remember this day and our children shall look upon this event to see that no matter what the Memor shall ALWAYS be a people of Kickasses that we shall ALWAYS fight to the bitter end. SO that they may FOREVER remember the mistakes of their forefathers and learn upon them. Now who is WITH ME."The cheers of the Collective Overmind was such that even non psionics in the swamp and beyond could hear it. With that the young under the care of the Clora'Zel they fled. Among the constant weeping of adults and elders saying farewell to their young. Making promises and tearful goodbyes. This was going to be the end. All of those remained knew they were not going to be able to walk away. Yet at the same time they also saw that heroes also chose to remain to the bloody end...CLora'Zel insisted she wanted to stay but Richard stated that someone needed to watch the children, and he donned is suit of pure undiluted Mad SCIENCE. Before approaching the surface with a truly nightmarish array of 'experimental' objects. That was when the ground begin to rumble and poured forth form the tunnels in gleaming armor was Volkendrad Elite Company and Secret Forces of the Marsh. They came to join battle with their leader known as Richard...otherwise known as the monstrous Dr Volk. The man responsible for the Fall...
>>27713179Stop it, I'm going to cry.I hope we encounter a forest of terrifying half-flesh half-machine spiders that spray plasma, acid, radiation, fire, electricity, and lay their eggs in fallen monsters in the next thread.
>>27713179that just gave me a thought:tabula survives and continues to tend his crystal garden some psionic sees him and thinks he can get the drop on him. he tries to probe tabulas mind before striking and is met with every memory of all the memor and his brain proptly liquifies
>>27713179Don't forget 101 ways how to have an orgy everyday for any species.I really do hope somone sentient reach the lovenest first. Or at least Clora comes to save it. Heh, the heart of the Memor will beat on.
>>27713279>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1Bda-_atAkThe things in the image on that first youtube compilation are what you imagined the memor to be like, aren't they? Or at least, where you hoped we'd lead them.
Rolled 100>>27713249From the hellish elemental storm marched for the massive bandit legions...and then the bombardments began from the mobile bases and what vehicles they brought with. That was when the Rods From God were deployed impaling the mobile bases. That was when ghouls erupted from their burrows from below along with Fleshbeast but they just kept coming. The onslaught was so vicious that it wasn't long before our guns ran dry...that was when for some reason we began to receive air drops of supplies to keep the fighting gold. On each package was a Kiss mark with a message "With Love from Marcus and Mox P.S."We held them off until the ground began to rumble...and erupted from it were a massive tide of mutants and bandits. That was when NOVA King erupted from the ground leading the pathetic remainder of brood forces as he charged forth into the enemy surrounded by a literal halo of elemental energy. Our forces were slowly being assaulted from all sides despite the truly Hellish storms we had air drops from ravagers descend on our forces. From all sides, down and below we were assaulted. Our forces were about to collapse before we could deploy the Deterrence field or steriods or even the doomsday weapons that was when the BOOM-City turned on. Over the gigantic Mics everyone heard DO YOU REALLY THINK WOULD MISS SOMETHING THIS SOMETHING OF PURE AWESOME. It charged forth wreaking such havoc that our engineers were actually able to build in peace and thus the deterrence field was deployed. By this time however we had Reavers and ravagers running amok even Super Mutants fighting along side bandits. Our forces were all about to die when the final one last FUCK YOU was deployed.The doomsday weapons were activated and the Deterrence Field on Steroids activated.
>>27713485>Rolled 100The dice gods are sending us a parting gift as well.
>>27713485DAT. PERFECT. 100.
>>27713503I'd like that to hurt "Jenny" somehow.As Leonidas and his 300 made the god king xerxes bleed on his last stand, so too shall we make she who hungers bleed.
>>27713503By the Gods.
>>27713485im so sad to see the memor fall but goddamnit this ending along with your music im absolutely giddy right now
>>27713503The Dice Gods at least.Us? Had they lived, the Memor would have some words with the gods that lead them to this.
Rolled 17>>27713485The zombie Hives literally exploded the zombies contained within were so eager. Even the zombies in the City and those hibernating in long forgotten cities and underground cells awoken...and they found the resistance they faced .Monsters meanwhile all erupted so many in fact that the swamp shouldn't have possibly of had that many and then some but it did. From hibernating beasts who only awoken during god forsaken amounts of times to even the monstrosities trapped underground erupted forth. Not even monsters on the other side of the world or zombies for that matter were safe from this call. The event was on such a magnitude that Psi users screamed in agony and people everywhere thought that yet another Fall was going to occur. Everyone they poured forth fighting their way to that sole settlement at impossible speed. Even zombie strains and monsters from the world over were found fighting there in the swamp.Even She Who Hungers got swept away by the sheer urge...and thus even she belied forth.
Tabula and EDE and his kin better be recording all this for posterity.
>>27713654MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!At least the Psi-Deterrence field gave us the world-ending weapon that the Entropic Virus was not.
>>27713677I'm sure they are, from every angle.It is fitting we are called "Memor", for we shall never be forgotten.
>>27713697"Evil beyond words""Tiny, but vicious."These will be understatements. Who could've thought a race so small, so puny, a pariah could cause all this havoc.I wonder how other Memor will be seen in the eyes of the world.
>>27713751Heh, no one will ever touch them. Next thread we'll stumble upon a group of pale mutants with large eyes that move strangely on accident, just a few dozen of them. We'll try to destroy them and immediately invoke the wrath of every major faction in our area.Because no one dares see what will happen if someone tries to kill the Memor again.
>>27713751Truth be told, Jenny was entirely the embodiment of that as well.All those times, the great voice of the zombie horde, was a little girl in a business suit plotting from behind a corporate desk.
Rolled 62>>27713654The resistance the Monsters and Zombies found most wanting. Meanwhile in the City a large series of gigantic glowing zeppelins rose forth heading the clusterfuck of the swamp. The owners were none other the Glows Krew Raiders. The largest one of which on in the lead on the very tip of strapped to it was a glowing Figure screaming obscenities...that was the last time the Glows Krew were ever seen. Fighting alongside their dearest friends the Memor for one final time. Just as the memor shall be finished so too were the Glows Krew. Side by side. Charging into the hellish storm somehow they made it time to fight Near the very end of the fight instead of the crystals being sent to NOVA King they were instead used by The Prophet of Fate, but not without warning.You can't do this Prophet your people need you were their guide their savior tapping directly into this many crystals would be too much for even you, begged Tabula Rasa....It was because of me this all happened said the Prophet revealing a birthmark on him to Tabula which appeared as /tg/ this was what proved me to be that figure. I guided the my people I led them all this is my fault...plus the bastards thought I couldn't fight for shit. With that the Prophet plugged himself in. The then GIGANTIC Elemental Storm also became psionic...and it sought out targets while moving with horrific intelligence and even will almost as if it was aware. It even became so large as to sprawl out of the swamp at an ever accelerating pace. Psi users from around the world and beyond felt that massive amount of energy as the Prophet decided to burn himself out like star and go Super Nova.
>>27713851>a birthmark>/tg/It's the mark of the cursed gods. . .
>>27713851I suggested on occasion that we send him out for a fight. It was always shot down because he maintained our hivemind/"was our most valuable member". And he was...may the Prophet live forever alongside Warlord Duelfists. Please let us find statues of these guys somewhere in the next one.
>>27713946I don't know about statues, but apparently portraits of Glowy Joe riding atop Duelfists in front of the Supermutant mobile fort fleet charging down the fleshy walls to attack the heart are popular.This on the otherhand deserves an entire mini-series of movies and a sitcom of our heroes as actually seen by the hivemind.
>>27713981We must acquire one.
Rolled 48>>27713851Sir why hire bandits. Against the Guard no bandits can in straight up fight.They just need to buy time, answered Algeraz. They did not hold for very long even with reinforcements. They did however hold just long enough for the Guard to find themselves being attacking from all around by Wasteland Mutants as they spewed forth. The zombies meanwhile could also be heard pouring forth from the Mega City and descending upon the Guard forces. Meanwhile in the distance one could see a nightmarish storm rapidly approach promising yet another Apocalypse. In the city meanwhile spewed forth zombies, mutant zombies, psi zombies, zomborgs and their wranglers. poured forth it is said that so many came forth and infected humans that the city was seemingly empty for centuries. The zombies struck the Guard tearing open their APCs like paper and tossing their tanks around like ragdolls. They charged forth and then sent their attention to the swamp....Meanwhile somewhere in the swamp crept along a Mobile Fortress surrounded by an army of Mobile Bases. That was when the ground began to rumble so hard that even the Mobile Fortress tottered despite being in a swamp. errupted forth from the ground countless number of Brood Spawn. So many in fact that shear weight of numbers pushed them to such heights as to tower over even the Mobile Fortress. There they fell upon them. General Dukov could hear the screams and his forces desperately fighting. He will admit as he picked up his wine glass for one last drink before they come tearing through the door. He could hear the chittering, slobbering, and could even feel their hunger. He took was last gulp as he rose his pistol towards the door as it began to warp inwards. That he never expected for so many broods to work together much less there were actually this many of them in swamp. For that oversight he and his people were all going to die. After that lost thought the door went flying forward and came forth death.
>>27714280Haha, fuck you, good guys.
>>27714340I laughed, out loud.
>>27714340Haha, this is too true.And we were so CLOSE.
>>27714340You make me feel sad.I've had this image of a lone memor child, sitting under the shade of a very specific tree. Beyond, sunny plains that caravans trumble through and further a great vined wall.Only mobile fortress ships sailing through a stormy ocean of broodflesh now.
>>27714481I wonder how bad Fireworks+Tchaikovsky Anon feels right now. Finally the blow we couldn't recover from.
>>27714549I don't blame him. I didn't see the huge flaw when I agreed to it.It was in a good idea, but horrible horrible lack of judgement.But that's typical of us.

Rolled 70>>27714280From the West charged forth the hillbillies and redneck families. On a tearful rampage as they knew that they would never be able to drink such things again. Thus they fought their way to the EDE Facility just to be able to taste one last drink....They made it too. From the East meanwhile charged forth Ramona in her vehicle of pure death freshly infused with EVE Tech along with a army of EVEbots. They charged forth meeting the Mobile Bases head on breaking through and charged towards the facility. There Ramon was seen doing her dance of death against apoclypic monsters, Super Zombies, and even taking on Mobile bases. With the bots secured A.I. EDE and Burke for getaway. During the worst of the fighting. The Crystal Guardians finally sallied forth. Wrecking everything that was a threat and even somehow making the Apocalyptic Storm even worse despite the sheer impossibility of making it even more so. That was when the ground crumbled and crystals pulled themselves out and together...they were feeding off the energies of the Storm and arose a OH FUCKING GOD HAVE MERCY COULD BRING APOCALYPSE BY ITSELF ALONE Tier Crystal Titan arose. a Herald.Meanwhile in an unspecified top secret prison.

They were led had Ramona, the possessed BOOM-City, Voss, Vass and even Warlord Slag among their number.Heroes EpilogueProphet of Fate was last seen literally aglow and falling apart from the sheer volume of psionic energy he wielded and directed. Countless numbers fell to him and it was thanks to him the Apocalyptic Storm grew so powerful and out of control it literally wrapped around an entire continent.Richard the Mad Scientist and former Scientific Monstrosity. somehow survived the fight and continued his research deep in the bowels of his lab. Until one day a unexpected guest arrived. His daughter.Brood Queen Clora'Zel found a home for herself and her brood. In afar away land but despite the enormous distance even the people here were painfully familiar with the Memor. She was lonely especially since her daughter left to find her father. But she was satisified as despite the everything her brood and family survived...she would be more then capable of doing something about it should a threat arise. As still no one knew her true power...after all got to keep the best for last just in case.

Rolled 10>>27714947William Didrikson the Fifth aka Wil. Spent his time hunting and going on adventures with the Alexis satisified...desperately trying to get into her pants. However he found himself having a bad habit of getting dragged around by Giggles whenever he got close/something or if not getting his ass kicked by Romona. He swears that once he FINALLY bangs Alexis he is totally going to show her that not all penises are fucking evil. ESPECIALLY his. Alexis the HuntressSpent her time hunting with the Noble Hunter who admittedly has grown on her, frolicked with Giggles(the apex monster of monsters thanks to its 'abilities'), and played with Ramona. She hunted so many things but ever since the day that the Storm brought forth she has never been able to enjoy quite as she used to. Considering how bittersweet it was and what they hunted. Ramona the Immortal nano infused master pilotSpends her time also trying to get into Alexis pants, raping women, tearing of the penises of men when they lose against her and racing. She even fought Wil once...she regretted that he revealed his true form and fought her in her RIDE to standstill. That day she discovered that he was in fact an Syn Addict, Augmented Monstrosity, and member of the a certain secret group. He was never actually human...just a monster even by mutant standards shit even by hers. Which is why deep down despite her greed and wanting to keep Alexis to herself she was also doing it to protect her...not that she would ever admit it.Dr. Claire stayed behind to patch the wounded enough to let them fight once more or commit an act of mercy. She knew she was going to die when most unexpectedly when she seemingly died from her wounds. Found herself awakening in a strange pool where a certain which and even Broodmother was...and there she stayed. Happy to heal and grow things but most importantly not have to put up with the goddamn sexual injuries anymore. Ah pure bliss.

Rolled 12>>27715128Witch Luna Got a hold of her friend a broodmother who she sworn had died long ago. She also established a coven and several scattered bandit bases. There she stayed after all there was just SO many secrets lurking in the swamp. At least once she got done going on the amazing bandit/ghoul crusade anyway. God was that fun plus talk about payback be a BITCH. That is what they get for throwing her out as but young girl not to mention stripping her of her own name as well. Warlord SlagFought his way to the Memor base only to find Prophet there he tried to persuade him that the best of badasses didn't die but lived on to retire. Prophet refused saying he this was the price he must pay for his failure. Crest fallen and morose the retreated to his base. Where he was morose until his wife arrived...having succeeded in getting that youth elixer she wanted. After that her constant revitalized appetite was just too much for him so he went ahead and lead a united crusade across the continent to getaway. Which would forever be remembered. I mean did his wife care when her tits sagged, her cunt was such a trainwreck, and she had enough scars to make a Reaver blush NNOOO but once her ass started going...she never even had a nice one in the FIRST place.NOVA KING Met his end during the crusade leading a strange armada and causing much havoc. Apparently if the stories are to be beleived despite being the first in a fight and the last out of one. Eventually his body gave finally gave out. Not by wounds but the same thing that took out the Arch Brood King. >>27715234He actually quite. As it did terrible things to its users. Basically imagine bioshock deal on steroids but even worse.

Rolled 64>>27715311Tabula RasaA lone golem is found in the remains of that battle so long ago...surrounded by carnage carefully attending his grove. Which by then expanded so very much. If one found the golem one would be hit by the weight of an entire people...on those crystals however were carved the names of everyone who died. From the time they were born to the time they died. How they died, their firs kiss, all their life experiences everything...it didn't matter if you couldn't read it as the crystals would translate it and give you that person's entire life story. There a moss covered golem roamed tending his grove, the memories, and the graves of those who had fallen. Overlooking it was a Crystal Titan which helped attend the grove and even protect it. Accessing encrypted files from database and harvested memories beginning drop. The Swamp was the result of bunch of labs experiments gone horroribly wrong...then it got flooded. The Guard were military remnants who eventually rose up and began forcing their own good laws on the land. The common sense kind of laws. They were made up of entirely of mutants as they got mutated one way or another allowing them to surivive. Thanks to their taking out of Bandits and dealing with slaves they had an amazingly high female to male ratio. Recruitement wise they relied upon freed slaves, children, adn the occasional volunteer. As to join you 1 had to become a mutant and 2 enforce the Laws. Giant maufacturing city supplied the Labs, city, and military with all manner of goods. Was inhabited by a Broodmother, bandits, and mutants, Crystal groves have guardians that feed upon the energy inexchange for protection. After all they have potentially amazing qualties safeguards had to be developed.EVE is an A.I. like myself originally she was supposed to be placed in this facility but thanks a mix up we got swapped. That is how we met and even kept in touch.
>>27715505>If one found the golem one would be hit by the weight of an entire people...on those crystals however were carved the names of everyone who died. From the time they were born to the time they died. How they died, their firs kiss, all their life experiences everything...it didn't matter if you couldn't read it as the crystals would translate it and give you that person's entire life story.It should be noted however, that going too far back to a particular era of history leads to a strange disappearance of all memories pertaining to the senses and sensation.Upon inquiry, presuming you manage to survive, Tabula can only note a sense of irk and display the image of a monstrous man or sometimes a scientist.
>>27715505>The Guard were military remnants who eventually rose up and began forcing their own good laws on the land. The common sense kind of laws. They were made up of entirely of mutants as they got mutated one way or another allowing them to surivive. Thanks to their taking out of Bandits and dealing with slaves they had an amazingly high female to male ratio. Recruitement wise they relied upon freed slaves, children, adn the occasional volunteer.

Of course this made them a target so they made some alliances and headed out to some incredibly hostile places to continue their work in secrecy. Prophet came from the Memor born and raised but was born with a certain mark. As for what he was it was a hero.The planet is indeed connected by a greater plot(the Fall) but that is the only thing. End of the World was caused by a Gigantic War, plague, natural disasters, and experiments gone horribly awry to put it simply. Was not entirely caused by the swamp though it certainly did more then its fair share.Didrikson is a member of very secretive group capable of doing terrible things and were very capable with Syn. The final State of she who hungers(her true form is hybrid between humanoid and the chaos that is broodmother). EDE Facility was wiped on the map for the most part. Or should say heavily damaged and overgrown with crystals. Scientific Research was looted by Richard and some of the survivors.>>27715462To a degree Syn is horrifying substance even bandits are wary of it.>>27715318She survived and led the zombies rumor has it she even took part in the collective Crusade.
>>27715634We planned to be good once our dream home came to light.
Rolled 1>>27715634And you wouldn't believe how pleased I was over that fact. I was expecting another Star Guard or even more likely the typical 'good' guy/white knight deal /tg/ loves. But NOPE not my fan-base not a chance in hell on their watch. I was actually pretty amazed over the whole affair.In any case though that is all.>>27715604To a degree it survived. Now I get to look forward to a reunion with EVE.
>>27715639Was She Who Hungers made in the swamp? Did all broodmothers come from the Heart of the Swamp? What was in the underground? I must know if I got it right!
>>27715639>She survived and led the zombies rumor has it she even took part in the collective Crusade.That's no way to describe the utter chaos of Umbra corp upon realizing their beloved immortal CEO was the most powerful psionic being in the region, watching her lead the very zombies they. . .oh wait were they in on it too?>still aliveto haunt another civilization perhaps
>>27715671one last fail for the road but if you could answer >>27715081it would be much appriciated
>>27715671>Rolled 1>That is allA strange yet fitting way to end
>>27715710I think the CEO wasn't SWH, but something that Umbra Corp had gotten ahold of.
>>27715639>Scientific Research was looted by Richard and some of the survivors.Oh thank god. So even with the passing of the Memor, their works have not been wiped.Spiders survive to, and I pray they won day overthrow the monsters as the new monsters in at least this small part of the world.Did Voss keep the crystal machine?
Rolled 88>>27715680She who hungers was created by Dr. Volk and his team. Yes it occured in the current swamp. Not all the broodmothers came from the Heart of the Swamp only the named ones did. Underground contained the facilities and tunnels that connected them among whatever else that began to spread between. Basically imagine, deadspace, bioshock, Resident Evil, cthulu, and SCIENCE all lurking down there. It only begin to describe it. Next persona is under this. Which I will most likely keep and trip it as well. I might start the next civ tomarrow or on a Tuesday if I can otherwise its going to Thursday/Friday. I don't like running on the weekends cause it turns out the majority of my fan-base has a life on the weekends. It has indeed been archived so don't forget to vote it up or the older threads. Seriously though I was kinda never really got that many votes. Granted I never actively encouraged it. >>27715710They were indeed in on it. Basically they could make Umbrella Corp piss themselves with what they were capable of. >>27715734She was it was the PERFECT hiding place for her.
>>27715734So what did Carl mean by when we thought she was she who hungers?
Rolled 53>>27715792Voss used it whenever he got bored to create some havoc so he was no longer bored. Basically he becaming a literal walking disaster. >>27715813That is what you called her.

I don't like running on the weekends cause it turns out the majority of my fan-base has a life on the weekends.Hurrah!do you think we'll learn our lessons this time or will the mistakes of past haunt us again?
>>27715813We called Umbra Corp's CEO's little pet "She Who Hungers".
>>27715839New people will hop on to a new Civ. thread like flies on a piece of meat, I'm afraid...So let's us old hands decide here what faction and etc. we want to play. That way we can get it instituted really quick.
>>27715792>Spiders survive to, and I pray they won day overthrow the monsters as the new monsters in at least this small part of the world.I do too."There used to be monsters in this region. They took part in the Great Storm. Strangely though, spiders have become an equally potent force, working with strange giant vines. They seem to protect the crystal grove.A strange scientist is known to walk among them, and only the BOOMtown nomads have been known to enter the place in peace""In particular, there is an odd ring of territory they set up nests and fight to the death. As though they were protecting a long forgotten border"
>>27715871Does anyone want me to post the beginning options?
Rolled 44>>27715846Pretty much. She Who Hungers was actually the collective hunger of zombies. The CEO merely guides it.>>27715839Doubtful considering you kept on repeating many of the damned things.
Rolled 59>>27715884Hold up and let me update them first.
>>27715900It's too bad this thread died so soon after I spent all that time compiling that shit.
>>27715839We have catchy catchphrases this time to remind us."Remember Ramona!""Don't turn on the crystal machine!""Save the fireworks and music for the end!"
we already went the [REDACTED] evil rout so i suggest for next civ we aim as close to TN as possible. "we become the mega corp with the toys that everyone wants and we direct chaos all around us all to turn ourselvs a bigger profit"
Rolled 59>>27715912Next you get to do it from the very beginning though so much easier in the long run.
>>27715923>"we become the mega corp with the toys that everyone wants and we direct chaos all around us all to turn ourselvs a bigger profit"In particular, we have the boon of a strange mutant engineer and his rather pretty wife.He came to us after his last faction he worked for died, took most of his newer models with him.
>>27715923Thing is with the Memor, I cared for them and their race. I had an endgame in sight of peace.Good busniess is grand and all, but why should I care for an industry?Also no more hivemind benefits, fuck scouting will be even more a pain in the ass
>>27715934"you get to do it"huehuehue, thanks there Mr. QM. Sure hope you don't mind if a couple hundred extra tanks pop in there every now and then.
>>27715948we do very little fighting on our own but instead we direct other peoples armys to do our bidding with the promise of favors/trinkets (of course we keep a crack team for surgical strikes where they are needed most)

>>27715981We have an end goal.Out competing our great rival from before the fallumbra corp
>>27716041>>27716041Hmm, I can get behind taking down Umbra Corp.Shit, we might even just do well to be able to equal the amount of end-game dickery the Memor were able to pull off.Oh, what sort of stuff were we going to be able to do with the Finger Biter Fish and what did the Experimental Fluids do?

>>27716041>>27716063Perhaps, our glorious CEO was conversing with a certain someone about a particular idea.A little garden, with a little market, in a little patch of land somewhere.Though, if it were to be done it'd need to be capitalized on it a lot more.
>>27716118Or we make it our goal to find the Memor, and when we do we integrate all of their mutations into all of us, and we integrate the Memor too.Then we make it our goal to find a certain crystal grove in the middle of a swamp.
>>27716180>Though, if it were to be done it'd need to be capitalized on it a lot more.Yep. No more silly green plains or houses.We're gonna maximize profits here. Maybe find a broodmother. Open up a lovenest that puts the Memor to shame.
>>27716243>>27716257I like these idea's. No, I LOVE these idea'sBut keep your hunger in check guys. We need to keep business afloat first before we can make the Market Garden a reality.When we reopen the lovenest maybe I can actually do a longterm plan for it that I had hoped would happen, had the Memor not died

As a result of lack of test subjects after the fall, most of the remnants at this point are heavily augmented, heavily psionic, or both. They get a hivemind...of techpsience!
>>27716391Aduro Industries and Umbra Corp, as one can expect of such named companies , shared a bitter rivalry that spans well before the fall. Always regraded as equals, even at their peak, their rivalry had great influence on the economic world.Where Umbra Corp specialized in biological research, often shady or ethically questionable at the time, Aduro Industries specialized in technological research and in particular, energy research. They were rather more public with their works, often doing many fancy PR stunts and proclaiming the glittering shining cities of light of the pre-fall world their creation (but to be truthful, thes cities would've also been unsustainable Umbra Corps discoveries in the meidcal and biofield).In particular, the Government was interested in their energy research. Lasers tanks, microwave satellites, these were small fry to the company. At it's peak, it once had a generator that was claimed to "draw energy from outside the known universe".Since the fall, much knowledge of that particular project was lost but ever since the numerous corporate remants remants and government industries have been vying for even a shred of proof of its existence.

>>27716518>Think Tank Remnants>HQ: Research Facility/Vault>Location: DesertOne of the more daring Research-Vault experiments. Vault 101 was meant to see what would happen when a population composed of mostly scientists was isolated for an extended period of time with assumed incompatible technologies.The Hypothesis was that the residents would divide into opposing sects of mechanical augmenters, and psionic-users.Instead, the population solved the integration problems in both technology and biology, and technology and psionics. They also temporarily turned their hands to political science after this quantum leap, (though they quickly became bored and went back to their more difficult pursuits) and formed a hivemind.This miraculous step is made much less surprising when one is told that a brilliant scientist, known widely to rival the brilliance of the esteemed Dr. Volk, had been inserted into the lab on accident. He had recently faked his death so the assassins that his jealous comrade in science would be confused for a while, and the experiment designers mistook him for an average scientist.
>>27716627>No bandits>Factions: 83>High monsters and zombies>Not that very mysterious, but still thereCan't wait to see.
>>27716657Our swamp actually had a "Mystery" score of 2. I'm not sure that "Mystery" actually refers to the mysteriousness of a location.
Rolled 73, 47, 27, 60, 12 = 219>>27716627Alright apparently Local Bandit Presence got the living shit beat out of them by both the nearby factions and threats. As in they are virtually nonexistent. Sadly this cannot be said of the monsters and zombies who maintain a good reasonably strong presence. Despite this Factio are quite prevalent. Resources are low thanks to all the competition for them. So unlike this Civ resources are going to be an actual concern for you. Competition is stiff for them. Good thing bandits are no virtually nonexistent otherwise it would even be worse.>>27716672Its actually to determine several things.
>>27716540>>27716655>mfw these are both really good I can't decideTruth be told I'm leaning to company because doing another hivemind would bring bittersweet memories.Also I want to try new things.
>>27716627Pfft, after the swamp that doesn't phase me at all. There's not a single score on there that was as high as the swamp (except mystery).
Rolled 87, 87, 51, 51, 16 = 292>>27716693The swamp was fucking hell on earth even by Post Apoc standards. For veterans of this civ its going to feel like a goddamn cake walk except for the lack of resources.>>27716692Its strange to see people in a Megacorp mood. Guess that is what happens with the awesome of Umbra Corp. Problem is your next location is going to be low in resources remember that.
>>27716692I'm all for new things to, that's why I'm leaning towards Think Tank Remnants, as they get UBER RESEARCH CAPABILITIES.You know how many turns it took us to figure out how to build the Psionic Deterrence Field?Yeah, not anymore.
>>27716692And aside from the points here >>27716732I'm afraid of the headache of dealing with assuring loyalty and all that jazz. Seriously, it'll be a pain in the ass if we don't have some passive function assuring complete loyalty.>>27716731If we hadn't had a hivemind assuring complete loyalty we would've fallen apart almost straight from the get-go with the Memor right? By a combination of how fucking atrocious the swamp was AND our poor decisions?
>>27716731It's not like hivemind scientists can break the laws of conservation and poof up resources either.At least we'd be energy efficient (in abundance even).But I'm good with both, still leaning toward megacorp though.>>27716732Yeah there's that. The Megacorp I'd imagine would be all into searching and tapping into dat amazing oldworld tech that's still very much advanced even to this age.
>>27716741>Seriously, it'll be a pain in the ass if we don't have some passive function assuring complete loyalty.Who says hivemind is the only way to assure that?Did you know the brain functions as a series of energetic messages and pulses? Even Umbra corp managed to digitize the soul itself.
>>27716747Yeah, in light of the resources desert probably isn't the best way to go.
>>27716731>For veterans of this civ its going to feel like a goddamn cake walk except for the lack of resources.Somehow that's not very reassuring.
>>27716777I guess we could tether them with drugs or something else evil like that...but I think that having a hivemind is probably one of the best ways.Also, Think Tank Remnants means we get to jizz over designing uber-super soldiers where 10 can kills 1000s
>>27716731Seriously though dice gods hated you fuckers but granted you extremely high amount of access to painfully abundant resources. Only problem was getting them. Ain't gonna be true this time around.>>27716741Ah can't really say that feels like a while ago and in the very beginning you guys were kickass hard ass. Later on though oh most certainly. >>27716747Oh god I have to come up with awesome tech ideas to scrounge up...hopefully the creative juices in this thread sticks around.>>27716792Its not really. You got a good to even large number of rival factions. Above average to nearly high presence in monsters and zombies. Plus low resources to boot. Only good thing about it is no bandits(as in will only show up if crit fail occurs).>>27716789Desert has many facilties thrown around problem would be cracking them open to get at whats inside. The actual desert itself would be especially scarce. Would make an excellent place to have a hero with Ravage ability.
>>27716789Well to be fair, I'd imagine corporate remnants would have plenty of stockpiled resources, having survived this long. The vault in the meanwhile has not been getting any new supplies.In addition, every business knows the importance of micromanaging your resources to their fullest efficacy. And we would have the energy bonus, diplomacy bonus for existing this long, where the vault would be stepping out to a new world have to rely on whatever ancient generators and supplies were limited to them.
>>27716792Has EDE/Alede ever said anything reassuring?
>>27716820Oh no far beyond drugs.Think of an artificial hivemind, the fruits of endless labours into the energy workings of the mind. A sentient form of energy that can govern the masses will.Plus, we get to actually have a bonus to weapons research. Railguns? Lasers? Nuclear energy? We'd make the surrounding factions such weapons look like toys.Also, dat probability of hiring marcus
>>27716824In fact, Corporate Remnants have High Supplies and Thinktank Remnants have Poor Supplies (though I think research could circumvent that fairly well).I'm not sure we'd get a bonus to reputation, because we'd be emerging from a private bunker or something. Or emerging out of a private bunker into a super-tower.
>>27716841Allows you to loot the unlootable.
>>27716916That is its most basic Version you the hero you used to have that had it had a heavily advanced/upgraded version.
>>27716867>Or emerging out of a private bunker into a super-tower.Do we have to have been hiding there the whole time?Umbra Corp didn't seem to hide after the fall (if they did, how long did they wait to come out)?
>>27716858One such remnant of Adustro Industries hails from a particular branch which was in charge and had recently completed the "Mentis Industria" project. Based on oldworld and recent experimentation into the wavelengths and energies of the human brain (originally intended to wake patients from coma's or those in vegetative states) have discovered a way to artificially and technologically replicate the 'hivemind' that is more commonly found through biological mutation. This means that mutation is not a prerequisite for joining (however the same consent rules apply). Psionic users are therefore dependant upon both mutation and personal willpower, and as such numerous CEO's throughout the industries post fall history have been traditionally powerful mutants (though there have been exceptions of highly psionically active humans).Some concerns Mentis Industria is that it seems to be influenced by the so called "otherworldy source" or energy.
>>27716994So megacorp with hivemind benefits and energy bonus?We never did find a power source equal to the monsters of the swamp, and minireactors were a pain in the ass to purchase.
>>27716858>>27716858We could build those weapons, energy sources, artificial hivemind, advanced medical devices, and more with Thinktank Remnants too (and it'd be easier). But I suppose in the end people in the New Civ. creation thread will get to choose. And fuck Marcus, I'll obliterate that guy (with moderate prejudice because of his supply drops in our endgame) when I see him.
In any case though I am going to give you guys a free tip. figure out something that can deal with low resources and has good combat ability. Your going to need both. You choose something that is only good at one or the other or god forbidden neither your going to have a rough time.
>>27716994I thought Umbra was the medical giant?Oh well, I still lean towards the bigger research bonus, and particularly having unlocked bioborg tech (because that's honestly what we had the most fun with I think)
>>27717028I don't know about weapons, unless vault 101 is a dangerous place. Even then, our company would be founded on weapons research and we would have the edge over anyone else in energy sources. As for hivemind see >>27716994Medical I can give to them though.>But I suppose in the end people in the New Civ. creation thread will get to choose.Of course
>>27717049What ways are there of dealing with scarce resources?Trade? Efficiency research? Would being able to have an extensive mining operation help? Is something with high starting resources advisable?
>>27717049Basically this is how you should be thinking about.1 can deal with low resources(including food, water, materials ect).2 Decent war capacity(all them monster, zombies, and rivals)
>>27717068That's the thing, we'd be good at researching /anything/.
>>27717078Look at groups that have abilities that corrspond with it well. Such as high supply(only good for beginning) or abilities and so on.
>>27717068Just going to pipe in, we might not want to choose an archetype without strongpoint: manufacturing in a resource-scarce area.
>>27717084Think tanks and scorps are specialized. Its just that the think tank penalty for outside research is lower then then it is for corps.
>>27717094Sorry:It might be unwise to choose an archetype *with* strongpoint: manufacturing in a resource-scarce area.
>>27717084Yes, a jack of all trades, but master of none.>>27717080>1 can deal with low resources(including food, water, materials ect).E=mc^2. This is the formula for turning mass into energy.However, this can also be reversed. Energy can be turned into mass.That's not to say we can pull fleets of tanks out of our asses, but that we do have the capabilities. The issue is generation.As for war capability, what should one expect of the great rival of Umbra corp for governmental contracts for energy weapons vs their bio weapons?
>>27717114That's why we choose an archtype with a strongpoint: manufacturing without resource dependency. That is, energy based weapons over material based weapons.
>>27717116(this is, of course, dependent on EDE confirming either of our rather cheesy ideas)...Turning energy into mass isn't a practical thing. A spoonful of antimatter is enough to take out a good chunk of a rocky planet like earth, so that means that enough energy to create 2 spoonfuls of matter is enough to blow up a fair chunk of the earth...Also, might I note that borgs are not resource intensive and get several combat buffs.>>27717096What are the "War" bonuses dependent on? We never were really all that good at fighting as the Memor despite having "Excellent" war waging capabilities.
>>27717139See, when I hear energy-based weapons I think "requires rare materials and delicate assembly lines to make", and that doesn't sound good for poorly resourced areas.
>>27717116while i like where your heads at even IF we had energy>matter tech it would require FUCKHUGE ammounts of energy just to get basic elements (unless ede grants science handwavium to make it efficent)
now is all of this just brainstorming or is this all cannon that will be seen in the new thread?
>>27717150They said "turning energy into mass is impractical" they said. "You can't just poof energy from nowhere" they said. "you can't make a tank that uses absolutely no metal, only shields and solid energy" they said. Ah, but Aduro Industries says otherwise!Aduro Industries Ensuring a brighter tommorow, yesterday.
>>27717193Brainstorming mostly my points however remain quite valid. Including rolls prep accordingly.
>>27717193It's mostly a discussion between two guys harking the points of their respective civilization ideas.
>>27717166> it would require FUCKHUGE ammountsGood thing we have access to that. Because ENERGY production!>(unless ede grants science handwavium to make it efficent)Lest we forget magic healing radiation
>>27717201...That's really asking for a bit much...
>>27717208so your rolls for threats are valid but our location/base/race will be decided for real tomorow? just checking
>>27717208So would choosing a desert setting compound the resource scarcity?
>>27717221With rule of cool, you're doing it wrong if you're not asking for muchyeah they'rell be limits of course though
>>27717220i know that physics bending has happened but you shouldent count on it in creation unless ede oks it
>>27717220>>27717201>>27716994>>27716858In case you forgot about how we just swore we'd listen to EDE's hints, here's one. >>27716731>"Its strange to see people in a Megacorp mood. Guess that is what happens with the awesome of Umbra Corp. Problem is your next location is going to be low in resources remember that."
>>27717201I'm Cave Johnson, and I approve this message
>>27717248Of course. Which is exactly why I'm proposing a faction that is very much not dependant on material resources and is highly efficient at what little they're given.
>>27717252Black Messa was better
>>27717276Black Mesa can eat my bankrupt half life is better than portal tho.But they don't have Cave Johnson
