Rolled 96Last time in Adero Industries we got extorted, made trade, and got hit with the side effects of SCIENCE.The bandits have returned. There are not that many of them yet but they exist. Monsters lurk the lava flows. Dr. Picli has shown Overseer No-Mad the glories of Lava fishing. With No-Mad insisting fish can't live in lava but Picli simply replied "monsters do". Security concerns have arisen in considering the general threats and our lack of manpower. Last thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27735860/Turn 27>A. Scavenge for food.>B.

Rolled 98>>27762645Last thread it was hinted by Isabella and the Demons that these guys are fond of mutants (relatively speaking, with fond as in 'we're not going to outright kill you'). I'm hoping this gift will at least ensure a successful parlay.

Rolled 25>>27763012These vehicles are precious, even Isabella was leery to give them to us. Shields yes, but I'm not sure it'd be enough for a project of that size.Also and Aduro Corp employee forgetting how to drive a vehicle? That's a dock in pay.
>>27763039How about we change the basic action to "convert metal and foodplastic to resources for the manufacturing project.
Rolled 69>>27763069Our new employee's are refugee's from the ravagers latest strike on the high tech folk. We need help, badly.One of the common mistakes of the wicked Memor was that they always faild to recruit when they had the chance. We need help, badly, if the ravagers come it's game over. I had hoped the demons would be willing, but from what they said there is hope in appealing to Urgsha as we are mutants
Rolled 7>>27762631The Urgsha were caught of guard with the tribute refering you to as Pink Lovers and voluntary slaves to say the least. As we hit upon one of their patrols who 'escorted' us.

>>27763205Well he has spent a considerable amount of time with the Demons, but we should be prepared anyway.
Rolled 3>>27763205The only reason they didn't kill you is because you had mutants among your number. Plus Picli is human I think. Kind of hard to tell with Mad Scientists still doesn't look like a mutant.
Rolled 45>>27763220Mad science roll>>27763155As for what we say is that we are open to being friendly with the urgsha and we are concerned with the recent influx of bandits.We offer assistance in providing intel and scouting to aid any actions the they would like to do against the bandits, we aren't many in numbers but we're willing to do what's neccessary, We could also mention that we are open to favorable trade, paying tribute isn't the only way we can give them things, there are friendlier ways as well.
Rolled 61>>27763253Honestly though, 90 out of 150 of us are mutants. It's not that we have mutants among our numbers, We have humans among our numbers.
>>27763253Hmm, I see.>>27763155"Greetings Captain Morgan. It is good to see a valued. . .customer of Aduro Industries alive and well. I trust you have found our patented stealth shields most satisfying no? We take great pride in customer satisfaction."

Hi-Tech goods/services such as shields and your manufacturing will insure your protection from human elements."
Rolled 9>>27763253Well, technically they can't see Picli talking, but gods help us when he finds out it was a human he'd been talking to.
>>27763492"Ah, but captain it is actually the ravagers that we are most concerned about. Surely one in a position such as yourself knows that they are actively hunting those who can provide Hi-Tech goods and services. As is, we fear that it won't be long before our turn is next.If we find ourselves under besiege by them, we know not how long our shields may hold, though it should be noted that Aduro Industries shielding is far superior to any you'll find on the market and that however long we do last we garauntee none will match. Ah, but I digress, what we are really looking in to is potential aid in case of such an attack. Surely, if we can continue to provide you and your men bigger, more advanced shielding we can negotiate a deal?"
>>27763602"After all, the Shields and cloaks need recharging and maintainance, If they would sack us there would be maybe a year or two of you still having useable shields and cloaks, then you're back to nothing again."
Rolled 11>>27763602"As long as the Ravagers prove human deal is as stated earlier. I would like to kill them all but humans are refusing allow usual concessions for bandit hunting. Plus they fly fast and hit hard. Sadly we are not allowed to perform hunter killer missions against them. If they are not human...*sigh* I will have to talk to the higher ups."
>>27763681"Then we will be sure to inform you upon their status when they arrive. In addition, feel free to keep the shielded vehicle that the envoy brought to carry this tribute. I'm sure your higher-ups will be most interested in the prospect of having it done to all their vehicles.">" Problem is Ravagers humans are not willing to allow usual concessions for their elimination.">" humans are refusing allow usual concessions for bandit hunting.

We really have to do something about our population one day. Chapter three and we're not even in the thousand yet.As much as the thought of finding a broodmother is tempting (umbra corp 'fleshies' aside) I highly doubt we'd be so lucky as the Memor to get a broodmother here. Doesn't seem to be any bio oriented facilities, nor would we fit her needs.As such, soon enough we need to go about recruiting when we have the chance.
Rolled 21>>27764957>>27765008Teams went back to the strange place where our guys fell before. There we started digging around for more resources. We acquired what was left but even more interesting. The creatures were watching our forces. When one appeared and waved at some of our guys. It guided them to somewhere a sealed door where it gestured, then it disapeared. When our men came to break it open a massive amount of radiation was released enough to kill a human but only enough for a mutant to feel tingly. Inside beyond the radioactive material and some corpses. We found beyond a sealed door even more resources. After that we departed when the creatures were being drawn in and the 'corpses' started moving. After that our men swore that on their return they felt like they were being watched.Overseer No-Mad went driving around in the vehicles. Which broke down repeatedly. The terrain is hostile ashes clog everything and the heat melts it. Not to mention it feels like being in a oven in the middle of a volcano even air conditioning didn't help much. We got a lot to work on if we want good vehicles. On the plus side though the thermal shields kept our tires from melting into uselessness. Turn 31>A. Scavenge for food.>B. Try to improve the base>C.

>>27765328"Many thanks friend, but before we begin negotiantions, tell me. I'm sure you have been enjoying much benefit from Aduro Industries shielding but how would you feel about even more improvements to your caravan? More vehicles for resources, what sort of things do you wish your shield could do that it can't and we can make it happen?"
>>27765362Oh come now, we hired Voss without thinking twice. Profit is profit, evil and good are irrelevant.
>>27765334Yeah, but Alede has made it clear that the only way to get resources is through looting and scavenging, No matter how much work we put into resource production. And arming our scavengers better would cause our scavengings to be safer.>>27765395Which is why I say we hire him, but getting bad PR for hiring a mass-murderer or something or someone that migth betray us would be bad. But we should still vet him, hire him and keep an eye on him. I also suggest that each hero get a small share in the company to motivate profitability and loyalty (with clauses to the ownership of the shares, such as a certain amount of work each year towards furthering our goals and not taking hostile actions against us etc)

>>27765588Now that's thinking like Aduro Industries.
Rolled 93>>27765362Both those forces are VERY expensive to hire for obvious reasons(plus rep penalty what FUN). Good luck bargaining with them.>>27765370"heh i don't know about improvements I leave that sort of stuff to scientists and my engineers/mechanics. "In any case though the Graz were a special treat considering I know how you deal with uh 'exotic' materials very useful to be around. Graz got resistances to things even other mutants don't normally have plus they got keen senses.""SSS are a special I ran into with Sinner Salsho not sure what they are about exactly as their equipment is most strange. Only know that they are super soldiers. Doubt I can get something like them available any time soon.""tribal warriors are available thanks to some strings I pulled they are amazing at unusual warfare and scouting. It was expensive getting them though they don't like mutants but unlike others don't hate them.""Nomads I wondered into don't know what their deal is as they wrap themselves up tight. Got some mean looking shields, armor, and weapons though.""Sinner Salsho comes from one of the kingdoms. Was former Syn user(clean now)got put into the Protector programs. Too bad for them he cleaned up so they they didn't have the usual ties to him. Somehow found him far from home and in company of the Squad over there. From what I heard he was a criminal and addict he is clean now though and free don't know much more then that though.">>27765588She seems rather offended about this."Only time you see mutants in a caravan is only in 3 ways. They travel the wastes, they are in a bandit caravan or they are the product. As is you got lucky that I don't hold the usual prejudices and am actually willing to deal. People think way to lowly of them and I found doing otherwise gives quite the advantage."
>>27765633We have plenty of humans for the caravan if the issue is that a mutant caravan would have trouble trading. (not entirely sure what the reason she's offended is)I still support us trying to hire salsho and the SSS
>>27765633"Well, we'd be happy to speak with your engineers and mechanics and see what they have to say."In the meantime, as for trade:>Hydrogen>resources 2>Hi-Tech(biomods and medical)These are necessity. Purchase these to the maximum limit first.>Vehicles(hover and tracked tanks tracked APCs)These are desirables.Will trade food, water, and shields for them.
>>27765730I don't think we can risk an additional bonus to rep, as is we have a disadvantage of being both human and mutant (caught between the wrath of two worlds).The nomads seem interesting. But Graz are potentially very useful for radiation and dangerous energy experiments.
>>27765826*an additional penalty to rep
Rolled 28>>27765730Hire them how exactly and offer them what?She is offended because she is very independent, has many trade secrets and is well aware how bad for business you would be. >>27765795The usual huh? Very well then.Biomods(heat tolerance, Ash filter, and Iron lungs) Medical is basicaly medicine(hi-tech) surgical tools and medicinal healing units. VERY expensive both types. Resources VERY expensive as well. Especially considering you want both.Hydrogen is as usual traded for water as per the agreement.Luckily we have the stores for it but damn does Isabella knows her business. >>27765826"Feel free to talk/bargain with the potential hires."
Man it really sucks that we didn't survive the fall unmutated. Damned leaky reactors, even with the shields.She's given us radio contact with the hires so even after this turn we can attempt to bargain with them yes?
Rolled 61>>27765978Nope once their gone they may very well be gone forever.
>>27765896First off we offer them comfortable accomodations (I'd assume that our tower has some of the most comfortable rooms in this area that is not filled with ash and is airconditioned), We also offer them a (quite) small share in our Corporation (bigger for Salsho). We also give them a stipend to use to requsition any materials, gems, equipment they need for the job or personal reasons (within reasons).As for the rest we want all the bio mods and the resources, we might want to consider aborting the hydrogen deal (provided our volcanic gasses covers that).As for payment we pay food, water and upgrading the Caravan with shields and cloaking units.I assume it's understood that us hiring the SSS and Salsho is on the down low and should not be spread around.
>>27765896>ResourcesExchange for food, water, fertilizerQ>HydrogenAlready agreed uponAsk the SSS and Sinner Solsho what their starting price is? We can offer advanced shields, and we'll get them some advanced energy weapons eventually. They'd also get all the food and water they could want.We should definitely try to acquire the Nomads and Tribals, for their scouting and scavenging proficiencies.
>>27766039>>27765328Resources are the most important. Get 2 of them. Whatever we have leftover to be used for the biomods and medicine."Thank you for your continued trade, Isabella. Remind your engineer's to voice any concerns or questions about potential shield imrpovements, and please tell them to actively take logs on their performance for us to make improvements. Aduro Industries greatly values customer and business partner input."As for the contacts, let's open up individualized inquiry with them. Use Dr. Picli's speechcraft bonus.Ask them about themselves, what are they pertaining to share, what do they think we can provide them or would like us to provide them, and how do they feel about coming under our employ?
>>27766197We NEED to recruit the Tribals and Nomads at least for their scouting and scavenging proficiency respectively.Ideally we'd get the SSS and Sinner Solsho, but it's more than likely that they're too expensive for us.
>>27766279Yes, We add the tribals and nomads. Hopefully we can just adopt them easily with our superior living conditions.
>>27766279Hmmm, quite. Nomads would also be good because of their affinity or familiarity to shielding technology and usage.
>>27766310You have to talk to them personally in order to see what terms they want. No one's going to join a group of (multiple different types of mutants) for cheap.We might also consider getting more Gral. They might be able to detect what's been picking off our patrols in the tunnels.
>>27766344In addition we should also checkup on the wax skinned creatures in time. They've shown friendliness to us, have been seen to have a knowledge of the lay of the land and resources, and we have MUCH to profit should we sucessful return the favor.
Rolled 46>>27766064"Salsho actually laughs so hard he fell out his chair while even the stony SSS chuckled.>>27766169"Shields along with 'fresh' food, 'pure' water and nice board with first pick of equipment as well as loot then you got yourselves our services for a turn or two or enough for a mission anyway.">>27766197Dr. Picli had to bribe them with some shields and water to get them to open up.Graz are mutants who normally run around in the usual packs in the outlands or gangs in the ruins. Until they ran into smarties who loved to hire them thanks to their abilities ever since then its proven quite profitable for them. Sure hard business to get into but well worth it thanks to all the stuff they get. >Contract requires tech payment to seal.>Regular payments include food and water. >Contract extensions require all of the above.Are available in order to help out their tribes and home. Times can be tough having a fraction of warriors hire themselves off can help alleviate issues.>Tribal Warriors require large food and water shipments for their tribe and a smaller fraction for themselves if only in water.>Contract Extensions require an extra large of the above as well as tech.Nomads go around wanting materials for their wanderings. Food and water are easy enough to get on the move refined materials/finished product on the other hand much harder. Nomads are the strangest wanting only materials. Contract extension requires tech bonus.
>>27766391I feel like those are probably ghouls.
>>27766344>They might be able to detect what's been picking off our patrols in the tunnels.The demons have postulated it might be Lurklas, which are very sneaky. Monsters are possible, but they would've left a mess by now and often there aren't even smear stains on the walls.
>>27766441>Food and water are easy enough to get on the move refined materials/finished product on the other hand much harder. >Nomads are the strangest wanting only materials.Well looky here, we're up to our noses in the stuff. Can't even use them for resources.These guys are a must, but others should gotten of course, but just saying we have what they want.
>>27766454Yes, but we don't know what a Lurklas is in practical terms. Nor can we hope to capture one or otherwise set up negotiations for alliance or recruitment if we can't even see them. (think of how good they'd be as scouts)
>>27766441(new guy here, it seems to me, we should not call it "mutation" in this context. mutation sounds random. here, this could be called "gene-modded" and it could be done in a proper lab.)
>>27766441We hire the SSS to clear out the tunnels, and then I really mean clear out, we want whatever that has been killing our men dead, all it's relatives and friends dead, its home pissed on, shot a bit and then cleared again to make sure everything is dead. Then they get payment.And then hire the rest.What does Salsho ask for?
>>27766441>"Shields along with 'fresh' food, 'pure' water and nice board with first pick of equipment as well as loot then you got yourselves our services for a turn or two or enough for a mission anyway."How about selective protection? That is, we don't know when we might come under attack from. . .certain forces, but when we do we would like aid. We'd also not like to come under the attentino of them, so sending you to attack them isn't desriable.We can provide you 7/10's of the food, water, and what tech you like. When we come under siege, we provide the rest (and a hefty bonus) for you to come to our aid.
>>27766504Which part are you talking about? The Graz (and an uncountable number of others) are indeed mutants that've developed since The Fall.
Rolled 38>>27766504Gene mods and engineering is entirely from mutation. Mutation doesn't require a lab you just have go out there, find interesting stuff to shoot up, and see what happens. >>27766533Same as super soldiers but medicine, drugs and tech as well.>>27766536No. As we can not be certain we would be available much less make it in time.
Rolled 26>>27766592Bah meant gene mods and engineering is entirely different from mutation action wise. You don't need a lab to mutate thanks to being mutants.
>>27766592Then hire him and hire the SSS to clear the caves for us. Clean house.
>>27766533agree, but don't let them take advantage of us. >>27766536don't give up the store here!>>27766543(sorry, the mutents remind me so much of last civ run. btw, are these mutents really deformed? or do they have a common trait with them all? a pic would be nice.)
>>27766643We also hire the nomads and Tribals into our ranks, seeing as how they are willing to send members of their own under permanently employ to us as we have what they want (food, water, and materials)
Rolled 12>>27766592......(slaps forhead) why didn't we think of this. air moisture condencers! they pull water out from the air! it's another simple water making system we can make.
>>27766730I thought of that, but it probably wouldn't work due to the area we're in. the air moisture is probably low and the ash would clogg them immediately.
>>27766730> they pull water out from the air!See, the thing about living in a volcanic dessert (keyword dessert) is not only is it very dry, it's very hot and very dry, in addition to being very dry. DId I mention how dry the air was?
Rolled 16>>27766730We didn't think of it because we're in the middle of a volcano. Believe me, if people hadn't decided on a volcano-desert I would've just grabbed my copy of Dune and treated it like a handbook.
Alright so the way I see it>SSSWe hire these guys for the next two turns to clear out the tunnels>Nomads and TribalsThese guys are willing to give memebrs to join us permanently for food, water, and materials (of which we have abundance).How about the graz? They'd likely be good at looting.
Rolled 5>>27766816We already have 55 Graz, but we might consider getting more. It might encourage them to just stay.
Rolled 93>>27766667All mutants are deformed most of the time hideously. The memor hard large eyes, pale hair, nigh translucent skin and all manner horrific skin problems. Graz veins glow...different colors at random. Their have two eyes lids and three eyes all in a line. Their skin has a strange husky glow. Their 'hair' is a bunch of fluffy tentacles that move around at random. They have a single large eyebrow that pulses seemingly at random with the hair going straight out.The demons well look like demons. The Urgsha big ass motherfuckers their skin ranges from yellowish green to orange. They don't have any hair. Their the white of their eyes blood veins are pronounced and blue in color. their eye color is completely black that seems to become larger and smaller at random with both of their eyes. Their nails end in claws their fingers thick but surprisingly nimble. Their skin is thick and can have little issue with weaker weapons. Their Jaws and neck are thick. Their teeth clearly meant for gnashing and grinding bone to dust.
Rolled 23>>27766754>>27766758>>27766763hot and dry it may be, there is still SOME water there. BUT! these devices can be made small enough to be portable and be used as an emergence back up water production. (the water can be filtered to get the ash out) we can SELL that to the caravan. others would love them.
Rolled 12>>27766848We're already getting plenty of water to sell from our synthesizer, and we have quite the bank anyway.
Rolled 33>>27766836a quick question. has anyone even tried to "undo" the mutations? bring them back to human norms and appearence?
>>27766836How do the enlightened look?>>27766816Don't forget about the hero as well.
Rolled 56>>27766848Others have tried that the heat is beyond terrible on a whole lot of tech and lets not get into the ash...
>>27766848Well if it's cost effective then by all means, but it'd be easy to check the air for its humidity.Think in terms of profit fellow shareholder.
Rolled 71>>27766881point. well i guess we can file that idea away as a back up if we lose all the water some how.
Rolled 19>>27766885I'm sure they have, but the mutant strains that survive usually have more benefits than penalties...so why would mutants even want to become human? Let alone the fact that humans hate them and have killed/hunted them for 100s of years.
>>27766887I think we're stretching our supplies as is. We had better protect the water synthesizers and hydroponics farms like motherfuckers after this deal, even with special shieldings aside.
Rolled 56>>27766885Pre-Fall certainly. It can work as long as its not natural mutation or the result of SCIENCE.>>27766887Their skull is warped from containing the enhanced brain(brain case bulging out). Eyes pushed out a bit even same with teeth. Nose is straight and narrow. The veins on their neck and head are VERY pronounced and pulse with their heartbeat. the veins closer to the head are red and slowly turn purpler the further away they are. Their blood strangely ranges from black to red.
Rolled 4>>27767000well, if the mutations are USEFUL... i just wish they can be made more presentable. (i'm thinking X-Men here. a corp needs to pleasing and sellable)
>>27767062We usually just send represenatives with presentable looks for that.Like how the evil Memor had sexy Vizen who could morph forms and kill by being so pretty or handsome. If you looked into their eyes it'd kill you (had to give them sunglasses). They were also good diplomats and scouts.
Rolled 6>>27767133No, they killed you with their hands. They just didn't like being looked in the eyes.
>>27767183Oh really?that's somewhat disillusioning. So much for me thinking they were like gorgeous medusas
Rolled 46SSS and Hero hired and dispatched underground.Hm these tunnels seem empty. Well besides monsters anyway oh fu-*Gauss blast* oh thanks J.No problem.So how long we been down here anyway. We got hired to clear the volcanic tunnels their cleared. Oh good then lets get out of here.Uh about the monster that fled?Everyone looks at the newb. We were only payed to kill the things in here not what escaped or is elsewhere.Ah very good then.
Rolled 39>>27767183No looking in directly in their eyes could literally kill you. They also loathed each other and others even more so.
>>27767226>We hire the SSS to clear out the tunnels, and then I really mean clear out, we want whatever that has been killing our men dead, all it's relatives and friends dead, its home pissed on, shot a bit and then cleared again to make sure everything is dead. Then they get payment.
Rolled 34Alright, so>SSSHire them to clear out the tunnels>Nomads and TribalsGive them what they want, they give us permanent members>GrazWe'll accept permanent membership as well, for what they so desireDoes that sound good? alsoProposing>Basic 1Evaluate the effectiveness of our new members on a salvage run. In addition, if you see a waxed skin creature approach them in an ammiable manner and attempt friendly communication.>ManufactureStart disseminating the biomods to our people>MAD SCIENCEHave Dr. Picli make our crude laser labs. . .less crude
Rolled 3>>27767293He has a point, EDE. That was the wording of the request.Though chill out, Shadowrise...if they want payment we can't stop them. Remember when Didrikson fought Ramona to a standstill in a mobile-base sized hero-vehicle because he was a Syn user? Yeah...
>>27767226>We were only payed to kill the things in here not what escaped or is elsewhere.Fuck that's gonna bite us in the ass later, I know it.Shit we need to make better contracts, we're a coporation for gods sakes. If we only had a CEO with us.
>>27767329yeah, just trying to get them to keep to the deal. We can't make it a habit to let people get off easily only doing part of the job.
>>27767363Especially since we're a corporation so that's double shame points.
Rolled 32>>27767293You only had access to the volcanic tunnels they cleared them out. Its not their fault that what lived there fled. Not that much escaped you have to remember these were super soldiers. Its was goddamn killing field despite it not being their home turf.>>27767336>>27767387too bad you didn't choose the CEO hero...
Rolled 74>>27767301I can dig it
>>27767387indeed. If people start thinking they can get away with it we're in trouble. It's not just that whatever was down there could come back and bite us in the ass, but it sets a bad precedent.
>>27767417>It's not just that whatever was down there could come back and bite us in the assI find your lack of faith in EDE, disturbing
>>27767403Well, lets examine the corpses and what's left behind.
Rolled 70>>27767444Let them have hope, cause I am Aleede.
>>27767464We should, unless. . .>"Ah whoops did you guys want corpses? Sorry we sorta vaporized them"
Rolled 28>>27767464Corpses will be available in three turns. It takes two turns to purge and another turn to work their way back out.
Rolled 62>>27767301Sounds like a good deal.MAD SCIENCE roll
>>27767471has anyone ever thought about sealing OFF sections of those tunnels until we are about to expand beyond the areas we finish useing up?
>>27767521alright so that the sss now lets see how the nomads and NoMad get along on a salvage mission
Rolled 45>>27767579Now that they have been cleared we should be able to set up some defensive shield barriers there.>>27767301Voting this, except change basic 1 to (Set up shield barriers to the furthest extent of the safe zones of the now cleared tunnels, as well as backup barriers).
>>27767642.>>27767301Supporting this.But maybe manufacture and basic should trade places
>>27767301>>27767642>>27767695adding a 3rd roll
>>27767695Yeah, take out the biomod dissemination in exchange for barrier placement. THe tunnels are No-Mad's domain.
>>27767642i was thinking of not only that, but collapsing the roof of those tunnels. lets see them get thought THAT. we can dig that back open later when needed.
ede said that the sss are still doing their thing for 2 more turns and they wont return untill the 3rd so for now lets do other stuff till they get back

>>27767764Well then if that is true, we switch manufacture back to biomod dissemination.
>>27767793Do the nomads and tribals have their own actions or do we need to use our other actions for them?

>>27768029We have both the natural gas income and abundant hydrogen.Push comes to shove, we can eve use electrolysis to get fuel from water.
>>27768045We should probably develop a means of condensing the volcanic gas into a liquid fuel before we invest too heavily in non-battery powered vehicles. I think we should just adapt our shields to power vehicles, personally. They have recharging power packs soo...
>>27768102yeah, we could probably create some kind of barrier based hovercraft, have the barriers push down and propell the vehicle
>>27768152Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. That's for the future though, once we have resources for research.
Rolled 76>>27767991This time our teams hit the mother load.

ok since sss are coming back soon i have an idea on how to secure the tunnels and possibly catch one of the sneaky fucks that we just had murderized.we set up several barrier projectors along the walls in a tunnel (3 or 4 rings of 3-5 projectors) with barriers blocking the tunnels on either side of the trap as backup containment/keep somthing else from freeing what we catch.so basicly when somthing comes into the center of our trap all the projectors activate and just create an ever shrinking ball of barriers until whatever is inside can no longer move (or is crushed to death oops) which we can then figure out how to deal with it best
>>27768410Basically set up shield cages for the SSS to lure them into? Sonuds reasonable.

It'll also be expensive to develop a technology we're not specialized in from scratch.Also, let's consider taking over the Busted Bunker and lighting it up so the Ravagers raid that and think they've taken us down. You know, the old Trojan Horse-esque routine.

>>27770789>Rolled 89 for mad scienceSo is this a case of a bad plan or not the right tech?
ok since we got the shields set up for the traders we should now work on our own (if i remember correctly our tanks can stealth but only for a short time) depending on what the problem is i have a suggestion:1. if the problem is somthing faulty/hardware cant handle extended running we need to do further work on the actual shield2. if the problem is simply that it takes too much energy we should work on making a good vehicle portable form of energy storage. this would be good for the initial purpous and also later in the game when we find people who are interested in buying energy we will have the ability to give them a truckload of charged batteries
>>27770803Waiting for the answer to this question.

>mfw this is OP's plan to show that he's capable of an largescale civ quest
>>27771728We're still a long way from taking over the world...though this region is a different story. We have infinite water, so large scale agriculture and dominion over this area is feasible.>>27771713Please let no other factions know about this until Isabella shows up again. Oh God I want to see the reaction you write for her when we give her more water than she can carry using a water elemental.
Rolled 73>>27771728...its still not ready yet though seriously though my 'largescale' idea does not even BEGIN to cover global. I was thinking more along the line of regional and EVENTUALLY continental....I am no idea what I am going to do.
>>27771706even tho we now have a shit ton we still need to be careful! if we dont build a proper foundation for ourselves we will topple under our own weight. DONT GET COCKY! first and foremost i suggest a major boost to our manufactureing abilities folowed by a general improvement to our facilitys (both operational and defensive aspects)
>>27771706I love the rides there!>>27771676He's right, I have a million questions but can barely manage to concentrate on one because of all the other stuff that it links to.>>27771769Don't worry, us neither! We'll wing it, like we always have.
>>27771789Yeah...>>27771769Can we get basic autobiographies from all our new heroes? I mean, if it's no trouble...I know it'd be a lot to write and it's late.
>>27771787Of course of course.It's just, what with all these delicious treats poured forth, one tends to get hungry.
>>27771787>>27771815Yeah, we should definitely delve into shields, and lasers now. I guess our reactor and geothermal spike are obsolete now that we have infinite energy 'batteries' (though the reactor still produces weapons-grade uranium...and we have a ninja that can infiltrate anywhere.)And expansion to our manufacturing abilities is important, but I think the Mobile Fortress probably has extensive manufacturing centers, and our base had large manufacturing abilities, we just didn't have the resources to use them. So I'd rank it below improving our shield and laser (defensive and offensive) technologies.
>>27771767This time we'll be offering Isabella a seat on the board for our appreciations of her efforts. With enough time, I'm sure the prospect of a fleet of caravans under her personal control will be tempting to say the least.All in due time of course. All in due time.
>>27771815Control your hunger! That's just Umbra Corp. infiltrating your brain! Listen to this man! >>27771787And this one! >>27771868Infrastructure! Secure our Tower, then secure our Mobile fortress and Mobile Bases, then secure our volcano, then secure our area! Securing the Volcano is far more daunting than we might've guessed before our glorious scouts discovered all of the tunnels below us, but it is incredibly important.
So here's an idea, we talk to Captain Morgan and see who's above him in the chain of command...then use our Ninja to eliminate them, thereby getting a friendly Commander of the Urgsha forces that owes us a favor.We might or might not want to discuss this with him first. It would depend on that roll, also might want to try to see how intense his loyalty/anti-humanism is.
>>27771815as long as we can keep all the bad ideas (that we are now very able to make) in check... fucking giant lazers on the roof
Rolled 77>>27771814MalzonStarted of a simple child who always loved exploring. then one day he ran into our scouts with his small pack and joined us. After all it was a perfect excuse to leave the city ruins and explore what lied beyond. Lootcha SkavSince he was born could always find, take and fix then improve whatever it was. Thus he quickly rose the ranks and grew ever increasingly skilled. When he was little more then a boy he was already a master and when he he hit puberty he was the Grand master. MK Ninja was a scout and average member of the journey who loved sneaking up on people, snatching things, and being a test subject(even if it means 'testing'(taking) experimental things). He was real troublemaker but valuable in the fact he always volunteered for dangerious scouting or experiments. Dr. Picli was rather fond of him thanks to that. Living WaterSimply existed then one day felt a call and found a world that could use some help...so helped it did. It seems though that for the most part it largely floated around from wherever it came from aimlessly unless something caught its interest.CEO Mr. Lightcontained in previously written fluff for the most part.
>>27771990Could they tell us what would piss them off so much that they'd abandon us/what they would like to do and/or seen done?
>>27771951what part of carefull did you not get? we deffinatly dont want to start fucking with the political landscape. just because we are able to do things doesnt mean we are able to deal with the repercusions. yes we COULD easyly have this head dude killed off but who would that piss off and would that even gaurenty us an ally? do we even want them as an ally? we are a hot topic now and we can have our choice of the company we keep. we shouldent settle for just anybody
Rolled 20>>27772011Malzon loves exploring.Lootcha gots to fix that looting or fixing urge of his.Living water is...unknownMr. Light whats to bring light back to the darkness.
>>27771990>fluffguy hereForgot to mention Mr. Light had a secretary. Though, that's another story altogether. She was the only one he'd let hold the sphere of light and he was quite fond of her. Mysteriously vanished a long time before the fall, and when she did he only kept his sphere of light ever so closer.After she was gone, Mr. Light acted often talking to the sphere (more than usual). Very odd.
>>27771951>>27772048Right. We are literally and figuratively standing on what could be the next biggest bomb since the Great Storm of Memor and the Continental Crusade. Presuming we even do something remotely that we'll have to discuss it to him carefully, subtly. He may be so loyal the the very notion could mean war.Speaking of careful speech, our illustrious neighbors could prove quite the potent allies. I wonder if the world of socio-economics and politics would prove remotely interesting to them.
>>27772048Chill out there bro, I chided fuckers left and right in the Memor threads about jumping ahead. I know how to be careful. We may have several Mobile Bases and a Mobile Fortress, but none of those are military-oriented, we still don't have weapons tech or military training.However, we now have what would've been a fortune back in the swamp...so a fuck of a lot more than that in our current situation.In other words: We sit upon a treasure trove, and have no means of defending it. So, we need to acquire a military arm and we need to do it as quickly as possible. But I always intended to go about it in a way like this guy >>27772090 is suggesting.
>>27772090fucking demon lawyers and polititions! i love it
>>27772214Bet they'd make some mean contracts to. We'd never get ripped off again.man, but speaking of demons I'm pissing myself imaging what very forces of hell and nature EDE will be summoning against us
Rolled 86>>27772254Not sure if backhanded compliment...
>>27772254We're not even at hell and nature yet. We're not even on taking down the Heart of the Swamp yet. We couldn't take down Clora'Zel as she stood at the Fall of the Memor yet.The Mobile Fortress is specialized as a Corporate HQ/Manufacturing hub, it probably has defense weapons but it isn't a military fortress and (while I'm sure it has security forces) its members aren't particularly combat-trained.The Mobile Bases probably have more weaponry proportionally than the Mobile Fortress, because they were nomad bases and so had to be able to defend themselves wandering the world...their inhabitants are likely proportionally more skilled at combat, but still aren't military or even paramilitary tier.This is a great boon, but it's no where near an instant-win button. We basically have hugely expanded Megacorp. Remnants capabilities with a heavy helping of Nomad civ. abilities.We'll need to invest into our research, and come up with ways to defend ourselves...then ways to fight back at other people...then we'll have to learn how to fight back or get people who can do it for us. And in the meantime we're MASSIVE SOFT TARGETS for every other big player in the region who worked for what they have.
>>27772275i would say that that was a compliment, you always found ways of letting us know that we werent on top without actualy shitting on us(unless the rolls let you) you run a great quest ede and personaly i wouldent hold it against you if you decided that a global civ was too much for you to process and just give us a continental expantion. but i know whatever you come up with will be fantastic.also when are you planning on starting the next thread?
>>27772254We have a CEO hero now (though he is more of a researcher), we shouldn't get ripped off anymore.
>>27772055Speaking of which I'd imagine Mr. Light is still talking to "Cassiel", as he calls his sphere today. Needless to say, even if his presence is naturally soothing it can still get really creepy.It's worse whenever you so much as mention the Mentis Industria project, because he gets into full blown conversations with the thing.
Rolled 60>>27772326The usual Thursday/Friday.
>>27772325Hell, we probably couldn't even take down the Memor as they stood (isolated of other threats) at their Fall yet. Barring /tg/-stupidity, which had more than a fair chance of occurring at any given instant.
>>27772339As long as he supervises deals.Still, having skilled diplomats is never a bad option. Beyond that these guys are wise, and tough sons of bitches to boot.I dare say, some might even call them handsome devils. here's hoping they're like our vizen one day. But that's a long time from now.
>>27772339but he is a CEO who isnt all there (either because of crazieness or brilliance or both) but even besides that not every single deal can cross his desk. we would greatly benifit from having a group of people there for the purpos of making sure we dont get fucked by the small print(and mabey throwing in some small print of our own)
>>27772361Nobody can take down the Memor. Only the Memor can take down the Memor.
Rolled 81>>27772382....and now the Memor are controlled by ME MUWOWAHAH.
>>27772382this is a fact that has tested true time and again
>>27772393And you placed them us underneath us because you wanted to demonstrate just how badass we could've been/show true your statement: "You guys better hope I never use the Memor against you in a future thread, because I have an idea of what to do with them...MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"You evil, evil AI.
Rolled 19>>27772466Nah I wont do it to so soonhave to wait till you wont be expecting it and to make there will be lots of fresh blood who wont know the implications. Plus EDE is long gone I am simply a member of Adero corp in charge of keeping hold of stats, events and news. As I am Alede.
>>27772507I'll be there, EDE, and I'll figure out your plan like I figured out the impending fleshbeast assault so long ago...Unless you don't hint about it and/or the players are too dumb to get even the barest hints about it coming.
Rolled 95>>27772540You should know I am a sucker for hints and tips.
>>27772540Or they've disenfranchised me somehow and I want to seem them die a painful death with you.
>>27772540Since when has the latter ever not been true?As long as we have the voice of reason, the we cannot fail (too badly).
>>27772548Okay, I've mulled it over and have some questions:Do the Mobile Bases and Mobile Fortress have their own food production and water supplies/recycling systems?What sort of combat ability do the Mobile Bases and Fortress have? Research facilities? Manufacturing facilities?What Aduro Ind. research have we acquired from getting into contact with all of the remnants, and from the Mobile Fortress HQ? I'm guessing very little because 'the research facilities were mostly looted (filthy Umbra). Do we have the facilities to reproduce the tech required to take advantage of this research?You know that if you control the Memor you have to make them behave sufficiently Chaotic Evil right? Or make something up about how the Many became One (that is, /tg/ became just you).What's covered under "A cheap shot action per turn"?What's covered under a "Water Action"?We get one Research action (can mimic Mad SCIENCE without the usual penalty/danger) and one MAD SCIENCE action per turn, right?What's covered under "free scavenge action"?What's covered under "free scouting action"?We get 3 or 4 basic actions per turn now, right?Can we get an updated Weapons list? What size and power output are our infinite-energy batteries? Man-portable? Do they render, say, our nuclear reactor obsolete? And do we have the ability to manufacture them?Do we have the ability to manufacture our let's call them Phase Shields? (the stealth shields)Back to the 'batteries'. Can we expect just a general increase in how good our shields are, because they now have such a god-tier powersource, or will we need to do a turn or two of research to integrate them into the shields?Do the Mobile Bases+Fortress have shields and/or lasers integrated into them?
>>27773911Additionally, I'd like to present a further consideration of an unpleasant meta-knowledge related possibility to the Board the players.We have been down into the tunnels and had our scouts taken out by an extremely stealthy, ruthless/deadly and precise enemy that 'slithers'.The Memor's Tectus were reptilian.There are tunnels coated in flesh below our base.Now, if it IS the Memor down there, we are obviously in an extremely delicate situation. We would have to ally or eliminate them with extreme haste. More on that later.If the Memor are below us, and the Urgsha find out...the Urgsha are mutant purists and the Memor were about the most pure expression of mutant purism that the Post-Apoc has seen. Right before their final battle, they directed one of the most fierce streams on monsters the Post-Apoc has ever seen on their human BANDIT ALLIES! Their ALLIES! Not even the human bandit ENEMIES they had been at war with, but their allies! This demonstrates their absolute hate of humans, as they sacrificed the strategic advantage of destroying their enemies (who had been concentrated into one base that would've been completely wiped out) to do penance for associating with filthy humans!That sort of extremism, this humble Board Member believes, would ring strongly with the Mutant Purist Urgsha. Recruiting the Urgsha would be the only practical way to kill the Memor (we ourselves have little to no experience in the ways of combat, as was demonstrated repeatedly with our patrols when they were unable to defend themselves against the smallest numbers of monsters or zombies)..but as has been discussed, the Urgsha would likely kill us for suggesting such a thing.So, pending more information...if it is confirmed that it is the Memor below us, we must do whatever it takes to ally them. Otherwise we will face a militant mutant faction below us, and one of two dominant paramilitary factions in the area coming at us from the land.
>>27772548btw EDE, I have some writefaggotry of my own for the Think Tank Remnants Civ if you'd like it. I have a junk e-mail you can contact me through if you'd like.
>>27774467I'd certainly like to see it, maybe as a pastebine.Even the us corporate remnants know of the legends of their brilliant minds.
>>27773966>we must do whatever it takes to ally them.Dear god man, do you have any idea what you are saying? Even supposing the legends prove true (and personally there are some of us here who still think the wicked Memor are a superstition to explain the great storm and the crusade, or made up story told by mothers to bad children) the Memor turned on their own allies! Celebrated the event with fireworks and music in a horrific slaughter that killed those members with monsters (don't you know the stories? It was a dark sacrificial ritual to their cursed gods to summon the terrible storm and creatures from hell). We cannot trust them!Additionally, fellow board member, your innate knowledge of this terrifying race is startling. It's almost as if you were divinely inspired or had some other wordly source.
>>27774723alright, the story is told in 3 segments now. I'm trying to leave it open in case EDE wants to use it as an NPC faction, and because I want to leave the heroes open to being Evil or Good.Here you go. http://pastebin.com/ya1s3zgSThe 'fluff' is told in a short narrative, an Overseer's report, and a pamphlet/propaganda advertisement after the Dr. takes over.The pamphlet somewhat develops my ideas on how it would work, and tries to differentiate it slightly from the Memor hivemind. I'll likely expand on those points later.>>27774777Heh.
>>27774808Hmm, interesting take on it. I love it.I was thinking of elaborating on Mentis Industria myself. And I'll try to ensure that any similarities (no mutation needed, potentially less "One"ism) end there.To the best of my abilities of course.Speaking of which, I wonder how our other remnant brothers are/will react to the return of Mr Light (how is it being spread? By word of mouth? oh dear). There are factions out there who believed Mr. Light a myth. There are also factions out there that are extremely devoted to the corporate cult (we treat it at best as formal tradition, at worst as a supersition), some more radical but unconfirmed reports are of one or several remnants even commiting live sentient sacrifices. In addition reports those same remnants being directly aided by the energy gods of the cult are most concerning. If these things are true. . .even if Mr. Light is with us. . .their loyalty will not be assured, not by a long shot.More on that in time.
