Rolled 2Last time at Adero Industries Megatower Lilli we made research encountered a nasty surprise of a 'busted' bunker. Finally a global grand meeting between the remnants of Aduro Industries. Sadly only those on this particular continent were able to attend everyone else meanwhile had to use telecom representatives. The goal of this great meetings of meetings was on how to bring light back into the world.

One very powerful remnant that all have heard.http://pastebin.com/6EcNt90zSome fluffy fluf.Oh, btw here's a diagram of Mentis Industria. More of that in the pastebin as well.feel free to tell me whatever doesn't fit.

DONT GET COCKY! first and foremost i suggest a major boost to our manufacturing abilities followed by a general improvement to our facilitiess (both operational and defensive aspects)"Wise words of advice to consider for our next turn
Rolled 82Don't forget there are three things you need to vote for. Including actions but also the stuff on the top.
Rolled 30>>27793883NEWSwe have noticed some serious tremors coming form the radiated zone aways off.Ravager craft have been sighted nearby.Ash Blood Zeppelins numbers are increasing. Something is riling up the monsters.Zombie hordes detected far off. Something is going on in their area.
>>27793883>Soldier AliWe're just not equipped for flesh, zombies and ghouls would be bad for rep (on top of our bad rep), I have no idea what Shadow Extin was but our name is the the opposite of shadow.>BorgsBecause robots. Modifiable, with energy based weaponry, robots.Voting these while I draw up actions to be taken.
>>27794409>Ravager craft have been sighted nearby.In our direction or in another direction? Do we have visuals on their vehicles?
>>27793883Is there still some room for new worker (player) ?
Rolled 56>>27794453Our direction. They be awfully curious about those new bases of ours. Visuals on their vehicles indicate hi-tech flying hover and thruster vehicles. Despite the horrid atmosphere they figured out how to fly. >>27794484There is always room for fresh blood. I just never mention it due to never actually remembering to state it. >>27793883Last thread.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27760838/
>>27794484Always room.However, I suggest reading up on the old threads on suptg, but generally speaking once some of the other members get back and just watching how things go it's easy to join in the decision making.
>>27794511Estimates on how many turns? till arrival?
Rolled 23>>27794542They have already arrived but are just keeping their distance for now.
>>27794563Cripes they just dropped in on us.So I'm presuming the base stealth shields are up.One last question, is there indication they can see through the stealth shields? What of the mobile fortresses, can they be seen from the open?
>>27794527Okay. I'll lukre.
>>27794599Feel free to think something up, even if it's crazy. Just accept some critique, get better informed, and you might have a good plan.Might have a while to lurk though, but the thread'll pick up soon enough
EDE, you bastard I have some questions.Okay, 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?
Gentlemen of the board, in light of the fact that that we are currently surrounded by a large airforce, I would like to propose an AA project.Now, we can always improve our shields but that would only delay the inevitable at best. Lasers, though effective and precise, can only target one target per shot.As such, I would like to propose the construction of a Tesla Tower on our rooftop. We have the chance to both fry their electricals and shields, ignite their fuel, and like a fly zapper burn to ashes anyone who dares bail out, all in a continuous charge that does not need to be directed or aimed. In addition, the atmosphere perpetually falls with ash, and there is a potential avalanche of static electricity in the air waiting to be set off. Our tower would be perfectly safe as not only would it be shielded but we are electrically grounded.Of course, this is pending estimates of the given research time, construction time, power supply, and any other logistics that should be taken into account.
>>27794790Emphasis on the volcanic ash lghtning avalanch
>>27794753I'd like to know some of these as well, as I think of actions.EDE don't worry if our next consensus is gonna take a while. In spirit of corporation we want to maximize our profits, in addition to the whole "we've got enemies at the gates" issue.
Rolled 70>>27794595Unknown if they can see through our stealth shields. Of course the mobile bases can be seen they are kinda huge you know...Global meeting MembersThere are 25 including usfour from this continent besides us. and 20 others who were able to connect.Reports include.Majority of Aduro Research Facilities have been wrecked.A number of Aduro Megatowers have also fallen.Many private bunkers remain. Though a some have been wrecked. Situation is poor for most. Only a handful are doing well.Adero remnants doing well.The Givers.The Mentis The Holy.The Shade.And finally the Saal.Other remnants are who are at least stable.The Kal Combine.The Corp Alli member Adju.The Drad.The Beyocs.The Makora.Those in dire condition.AlkinAdorShilkonMorjeneMulkoMutoAlsiDuwoNalshiDwemin>>27794753Mobile facilities can sustain themselves.Nomad Bases have a number of salvaged armaments. Fortress is equipped with shields and laser weaponry mostly. Nomad bases do not have much in the terms of Research or Manufacturing, Fortress does however.Most research has been lost with the specialized research facilities. There is some yet but it would be hard to access. Only in dealing with shields or barrier tech unless its general/basic.Cheap shot action is basically something like sabotage, ambush, or assassination and the like.Water action deals with odd actions involving water. Such as finding wells or being in the ocean ect.Only if you choose have those both be your bonus actions. Scavenging action is just that scavenging. Scouting action is check out our scouted area or exploring the unknown.3 actions per a turn2 bonus actions that you can choose from among what the heroes can offer you.Weapons are largely the same.infinite energy is incorrect it produces a stable set amount of energy. You pull more then that amount it shuts down otherwise it just keeps going and going. Man-Portable to a degree.
Rolled 60>>27794875continued.Nuclear reactors are indeed obslete to a degree. You can indeed manufacture them. Just beware their output is limited if you try to draw more then that it will shutdown. Luckily they can be kick-started.You can manufacture Phase shields. Watch out though repeated usage or using them to long can have unfortunate side effects(being gone forever). They can already connect to your shields. They do.
Rolled 2>>27794822Those tend to happen regularly already. >>27794870Not really their kinda freaking about the sudden OH SHIT MOBILE FORTRESS AND BASES.After all it takes time to get plan and then do.
>>27794870The base is surrounded and you're wasting your time in a meeting ! We need to act and fast ! We can't let those potential enemies take the initiative.
>>27795044I'm also considerin the *potential aspect of it all.First I'd like to be able to deal with them, but rather than unleashing whatever we do plan for that, then I'd like to ask "whats up with the anti-tech crusade".For now, we need to lay low but build up on immediate defense.
Rolled 60>>27795044The base is not surrounded this is the damned swamp.
>>27793883Voting shadow extin and paladins
Rolled 18>>27795095Bah meant that is the damned swamp where threats are surrounding you at all times.
>Basic 1Arm everyone with shields and weapons>Basic 2We have cleared out the tunnels even more. Now it is time to continue to press down there. Have Gral and MK ninja overwatch a crew to set up shields and block off the furthest safe reaches that he had explored.>Basic 310 of our remnants are in dire condition! Have Living Water summon a portal to send 5 Loot each, the new shields, and 100 men each to bolster our weakpoints! >MAD SCIENCEHave Dr. Picli work on “reactive cage shields”. Ravagers are fast, faster than perhaps even our mutants could react to so much as point a gun at them. If we can invent a shield for our infantry that automatically entraps a target before it can pounce on one of our members, at least that buys our troops some time to take one down.>Hero 1Loocha Skav – I CAN FIX IT – Completely repair and bring back online the Mobile Fortresses, and update their shielding to the latest stealth models. Also, feel free to move them in a direction away from our base so when they “vanish into thin air” the ravagers will be either curious enough to follow them, and if not we can confirm they know our base is here and they are after it (that’s not to say actually move them that far, just turn on the shields while they “head off somewhere else”)>Hero 2SAFE SCEINCE – Have Mr. Light work with No-Mad on procuring the resources, developing the precussors, necessary research, towards the great Tesla Tower in prep to take down enemy aircraft.Anyone have objections or alternatives please say so, it'd be appreciated.
Rolled 88>>27795203Forgot roll.MAD SCIENCEAlso that should be "latest phase model". OF course the whole "too long and you vanish into thin air" should also be noted.
>>27794205Hey, other fluff guy. Here's my updated fluff.I've never read or watched Ghost In The Shell, believe it or not...though I think maybe I might come off as being obsessed over it? I don't know, I've never seen it.I see Vault 101's hivemind as just being a result of being able to communicate with everyone else on a fundamental level. I see the Personality-Ghosts as something like the Geth from Mass-Effect. Machine-intelligences that involved on their own, except this time no one hated them so they cooperate and help their hosts, and their hosts enjoy the company.Anyway, anyone who reads it feel free to mention anything they feel needs revision. It's a first draft on everything.
Rolled 55>mfw arrive on thread>ungodly dice god blessing>information overload>>27795203I can vote for this
>>27795253You seem to have forgoten the pastebin link, fellow shareholder. I'd like to see those reports on V101.
>>27795203What? Oh God no, don't cover the Mobile Fortress in stealth shields! It'll pphase out of existence!>>27795321>>27795253Heh, oops. Here you go. It's mostly the same as earlier, but with 3 or 4 added sections. If you'd like, I could try to work in that this Vault got shut-in sometime Pre-Fall, and that a prototype tech-psionic interface got out. Then you could say that it got to Aduro Industries was what inspired Mr. Light to pursue the Mentis Industria.
>>27795365>Forgot it againC'mon man, step it up> If you'd like, I could try to work in that this Vault got shut-in sometime Pre-Fall, and that a prototype tech-psionic interface got out. Then you could say that it got to Aduro Industries was what inspired Mr. Light to pursue the Mentis Industria.I like that idea.>It'll pphase out of existence!A very scary thought. Okay, maybe stealth shields instead of phase shields.
>>27795203A Tesla Tower isn't really the stealthy type of weapon.Isn't that risky to use such a lighting thing ?We could have created a commission to find out the best suited weapon to our situation if only we has the time.However, we can't wait that long. You have my full support.>>27795253We can't take the risk of destroying all our personalty. We must find out if this will just be a perfect link or if it will made us cells of one spirit.Could we spare some citizen as guinea pig ?
>>27795411>A Tesla Tower isn't really the stealthy type of weapon.True, but I'd imagine it'd blend in to the natural lightning storms and would fit in the background more than lasers, which effectively give away our position anyway.Besides, the tower would also be covered by the stealth shields when not in use and we are already a pretty tall tower as is.
>>27795411>We can't take the risk of destroying all our personalty. We must find out if this will just be a perfect link or if it will made us cells of one spirit.>Could we spare some citizen as guinea pig ?Are you speaking of MI? We're far away from pursuing that project. The machine/tech for it isn't even in our base.But the upshot of MI is that individuality is completely untouched. It's about as Many as you can get with a hivemind.
>>27795426That's a good point.Moreover, we can be sure that if we had to use it, it means that we're already found.However, we should research EMP weapon, next. That seems more efficient to me, if our enemy is technologically advanced.
>>27795411>Isn't that risky to use such a lighting thing ?From a mechanical standpoint no. As we are a grounded tower it's perfectly safe, even if we are strike (which we won't be thanks to shields, and other physics related reasons) it'll harmless channel into the ground. It's in theory completely safe (for anyone in the tower). Though I'd imagine our Mobile Forts better ground themselves too or stay away.However, aircraft are pretty much in deep shit.Though there are possibly other socio-political risks not being taken into acount.

>>27795495I was actually talking about the risk to be found out or just to attract unwanted attention.But the issue seems to be settled since w have no time to think about a better solution.

>>27795203I have also realized something, if we are lacking troops to fight, can't we start to build combat capable robots that we can direct from our base? or maybe failing that, we can build powered armor our troops can wear with upgraded weapons dare i say, we create our own SPACE MARIENS?
>>27795529Add on >ExtraContact the Urgsha and offer them the chance attack the Ravager's bases while we occupy them in battle at our tower. If they won't do that for some reason, ask them what their price for coming over here and fighting them off would be.

>>27795636>>27795566>>27795593EDE has created fluff that would make Space Marines piss themselves. Power armor is extremely common, every single one of the ravagers coming for us will probably have it.Don't get shoe-horned into 40k tropes for our troops and/or development paths, this world is a lot more open and has a lot more potential for awesomeness than that.

>>27795785'tis true. We don't even know what we're voting for.I change my vote from Soldier to Flesh, because . . .hasn't anything EDE ever done taught you guys to never pick the obvious?And take hints heavily.
>>27795779Well, AIs can't be fit into processors as small as armors (also, Pre-Fall people tried putting AIs into assault rifles once...and the Rifles proceeded to murder them for it. So maybe we shouldn't do that.)

>>27795785I'll vote for Shadow Extin For a company named "Light" we sure do have a lot of stealthiness, and I like it.And paladins. Because I want to know what paladins are.
>>27795838I think they're "Mini-AIs". We could always get around the problem altogether by getting an A.I. then devoting it exclusively to communicating with Power-Armor processors.But really, getting power armor alone is a big enough boon. We'd probably do better to just improve it using research than to try and get an AI, then try and integrate it.
>>27795819There is risk in any research.If it didn't worked, it don't mean it's impossible.We need a proper research about the AI tech and the way to make it safe. We could also make non self aware program which could do the work as well.With such a system, we could put more people working for science sake, since they would no longer be needed in the battle field.

The dessert, Urgsha is but one figure we have met, presuming we do repair our personal infastructure, and we do hold out the ravagers (and that's saying a lot) how do we do it and what then?

>>27795897So we just have to think about how make it more effective.What about psychological war ? I like to see my enemy mentally destroyed before any gunshot is fired.
>>27795930Well, if we ever go about finding even low level energy beings.I'm sure the Saal would have a thing or two to say about that.But we aren't a psionic race.
>>27795880now for something down our allyway. i noticed something. we were focused on shielding, that is energy and force projection. we COULD develop a enhanced version of a man portable energy and force projector that works much like say, a green lantern's power ring?

>>27795960Good rolls and good heroes don't good plans make, just being on the safe side.>>27795957Well, before we get to ambitious, turning our cage shields into crush shields seems immediately feasible. Reverse the polarity of one side and opposites attract. Bandit/Ravager pancakes anyone?
>>27795956We don't need to be psionic.This could work through energy, hormones, sounds.However, there could be a problem with the mental weapon : each race could be diferent and a mental weapon could work on one of them and no on the others ...Well, maybe it's not the best.

No, we should act desperate, like we are in great need of resources (the machine exploded, we need some badly but can't offer).Depending on how she responds, we'll know where her loyalties lie, and make a decision thusly.

>>27797178It seriously seems like whenever I leave for even a minute a bad action list gets chosen and then a disaster strikes. Oh well, at least the actions weren't negatively productive.
>>27797351Do we have any communication with Urgsha? We have a lot of mutants here under attack by human bandits and we have more tech to offer him.No wait, we also have human Paladins. Urgh, nevermind.Why do I have the feeling this is like a region spanning Bandit Mayhem event...
>>27797178>Strange bombardments form obscene range has begun its worth noting that it is releasing strange contagions, refuse, and radiation.Hmmm long ranger artillery and virus weaponry. . .sounds familiar.
>>27797417Nope, still not them. Trust me, if we get attacked by you know who it'll be either completely out of the blue or blatantly out in the open
Rolled 61>>27797178Alright, let's consider our situation gentlemen.We have shields that are holding out the barbarians, for now.We have a Tesla Coil, that should the shields fail. We are also working on point laser defenses, hopefully if that comes to fruit we can intercept the long range artilleryWe have 4 stealthed mobile forts at our disposal, but I'm always cautious of attacknig without scouting. A pity our scouts are down and out, plus it's chaos out there.Then there's the tunnels. When you can't break into somewhere, you tunnel into it. It's a classic military tactic, unless worse we are being attacked by someone else completely down there.Suggestions?
>>27797178>>27797351Contact the Urgsha, promise them an excess of water, a lot of food, and a good amount of laser-tanks/other tech for their assistance RIGHT NOW. Have the Paladin coordinate with their commander.I'm going to acquire some more information before I try to make an attack plan.What sort of numbers does the Ashen Fleet have? Do they have the weapons to take down, say, our Mobile Fortress and a Mobile Base that have 3000 paladins in them helping?What are the numbers/armaments of the Ashen Fleet in general? And how deadly are the Ravager planes with them?We can't assume that there aren't shitloads more forces out there, somehow a goddamn fleet and a Mobile Base snuck up on us...AND we're under attack from underground somehow/for some reason/from someone.We HAVE to go out on the offensive away from all the defenses of our base though, because we're under viral/radiation/chemical bombardment that will crack through our shields or leave our surrounding area uninhabitable if we don't address it.
>>27797490>Have the Paladin coordinate with their commander.See that's the thing. Humans paladins + mutant supremacists = conflict big time
>>27797490>because we're under viral/radiation/chemical bombardment that will crack through our shields or leave our surrounding area uninhabitable if we don't address it.Perhaps we can appeal to the Demons too. Certainly they wouldn't appreciate someone poising the nearby fishing holes.
>>27797477We have ONE stealthed MOBILE BASE.NONE of our bases or our fort are very good at fighting, they're cobbled together and designed for use as a Corporate HQ respectively.The tunnels were already extant, although the "new tunnels" our scouts found might've been being made for this assault.>>27797383I feel more like it's people getting together to acquire our 1000 LOOT and 100 RESOURCES in an area where 3 or 4 resources is a OH GOD, YOU'RE SO FUCKING FILTHY RICH!!

Rolled 26>>27797490...We couldn't get a hold of the Urgsha as we are being jammed. The ashen fleet is made up of unknown number of zeppelins who knows what else(using ash clouds as cover).

Which indicates a quite the number considering its constant and switches around at a random.Weapons are unknown as they are trying to crack our shields at the moment. Unknown. Ravager deadlyness is unknown but considering how hi-tech they are and the fact they crack open labs for fun I would say it hellishly so.>>27797496Definite possibility.>>27797617Other then that it was amazingly good.

>>27797606We're going to have to attack them, and soon. Point-defense technology is good, but I'm not sure we can acquire it fast enough to make a difference in this situation.>>27797648AlEDE, is the Ashen Fleet+Ravagers on top of us, or are they holding off while their artillery grinds us to bits?Does Picli know how to replicate the Ash-Lava vortex she made a while ago? If so, someone could probably come up with a nifty plan where we get a shitton of lava and/or lava streams in the air, then have Aquam Vitae (Living Water/Water of Life) flash-cool it using water into a shield that'll grant us some time.Aquam Vitae has control over all things liquid so maybe he could just do it himself.Look over the Pastebin with the heroes' abilities and consult them motherfuckers and we might just live to tell our Children-Subsidiary Companies about the day we had to fight off a region's primary bandit forces.Fuck.Take note that they wouldn't have attacked unless they thought they had enough to win.

>>27797813Sounds like we should burn a fate point and attack the ravagers and/or mobile base with our fort NOW before their tunneling (probably laying explosives down there) pays off.How undetectable is our Stealth Mobile Base?
>>27797875Will the fatepoint cover the underground though?There might be worse things down there that we are ill equipt to handle, at least up here we have the promise of a Tesla Coil (though if history shows, our personal projects usually suck ass).
Rolled 38>>27797875Rather undetectable. Problem is IT sorta big...>>27797902Unlikely. Fate points will only counter a threat that you can identify.
We're in a pickle.We are under attack from artillery beyond our line of sight (and we're on a megatower too) in addition to a mobile fortress in a location we cannot scout (due to loss of scouts).As much as it pains me, I'd rather use the fatepoint on this one.

>>27798197...Prophet of Fate...?
Rolled 14>>27798587NEWSThe grounds nearby is beginning to swarm with monstrous activity.Ravager forces are sweeping in punching through our defenses and deploying their forces.Our Tesla Tower seems to have no effect on them. As in their craft...eats the lightning being thrown their way. Paladins have hit major resistance underground in strange human threats. They punched through and continued their Crusade. MK Ninja has returned severly wounded. What words that we could get out of before passing out was that no one but him made it out of there...
>>27798625Certainly not,If we get to the Mentis Industria, which at this rate idk, all will be revealed. Hints in the fluff and in one or two comments let last thread
>>27798642Aah, that's what you meant by "those tanks would've been of limited use in this fight". They're immune to energy weapons for some reason of another. Well the Ravagers have pinned their target well.I wish you hadn't sent that goddamn Mobile Base out ALONE. I told you it wasn't combat specialized, but you still sent it out ALONE for an attack. It was meant to be a goddamn trump card. You always keep a reserve.
>>27798686It seems it really wasn't meant to attack, just sort've scout.We still have the mobile fortress in reserve and 3 mb's left. And we have a good look at what we're getting into.
Rolled 50>>27798587>>27798642welp! it's been good to know ya fellows. the freaking Ravagers are here. is it too late to phase blip our entire fortress, bases, and population into a mini pocket space and make us VANISH? the besigers will then go away now we're no longer there to be taken.
Rolled 54>>27798726Still got that fate point...
>>27798642Seems we pissed off the Lurklas when we initiated a genocide against them. I wondered why you guys wanted to do that instead of recruit a god-tier stealth race.>>27798721Yeah, that's good. EDE, is the ghoul base in addition to the other Mobile Base?
Rolled 60>>27798766The Ghoulish Mobile base IS the hostile mobile base.
>>27798766To be fair, somebody down there struck first and it wasn't us. We sent miners down there, and they wiped them out.Though I wish there were a way to contact them and I knew that was coming to bite us in the but.
>>27798783I thought so. Oooooookay. Plans, plans, plans plans. Let me look at that hero list.
>>27798783Oh, I suppose we lost Grandmaster Lootya with the mobile base?
Rolled 17Reavers have broken through and are trying to breach our tower. Ashen Fleets has shifted their bombardments onto our mobile bases and fortresses full power. In addition to depositing troops on the top of the tower. Ghouls and other monstrous things are coming in on the ground everywhere. The ghoulish mobile base is keeping its distance bombarding us with all manner of nasty things. After they soaked our base they too began to focus on our mobile bases and even fortress.
Rolled 3>>27798899Well we did lose contact so it is certainly possible.
>>27798924>Ashen Fleets has shifted their bombardments onto our mobile bases and fortresses full power.Dammit how did they find those? We didn't even touch them yet.
Rolled 40>>27798963They got Hi-Tech Ravager allies and who knows how many places they hit or even how experienced they are in this sort of thing.
>>27799059Wait, we've got our most brainiest anon on the job. Give him a shot,
>>27798924Okay. Activate that fate point. (also I'd like to ask 'fate' if we're going to need to burn a hero?)Deploy the Paladins+their Leader against the Reavers at the top of our tower and where-ever they break through. They shall be a spear of shining light burning the darkness and filth out.Send the Mobile Fortress+Mobile Bases out against the Ghoulish Base in a cordon. Fucking dirty warfare fuckers, they're going to regret fucking with Adero Corp. The Mobile Bases have standard weapons (I presume), so have them focus their fire on the Ravagers+Ashen Fleet. Dispatch Mr. Light with the fortress, maybe he can pull some Dr. Manhattan shit and float up and blind the Ravagers with a flash of light too.Have Aquam accompany the Mobile Fortress and raise the lava-lake (If he's capable of it) up so that it burns all of the fuckers on the ground that they pass over. Once he feels he's close enough to have a reasonable chance of succeeding have him pull lava up around the legs of the ghoulish base...then douse it in water so it can't run or maneuver.Have No-Mad channel all of the employees under him, his, and MY into getting our shields back up and overcharging our lasers to FUCK EVERYTHING. Waiting for confirmation/advice from other anons. Also, ask Aquam if he thinks he could do that/is willing to for us?
>>27799133Channel all of the employees, his, and MY RAGE* And that was the best line in there too. Damn.
Rolled 82>>27799075we are about to get FUCKED! the zerg is about to swamp us! burn that point!>>27799133do this.
>>27799133The crusaders are busy harrowing hell right now, we pull them out we had better hope our multiple shield barriers hold out long enough.That, or we ask No-Mad to blow it up.
>>27799208We're NOT blowing up the tunnels while the Paladins are down there (also, I was under the impression that 100 paladins and 200 mutants were sent down there, as "no one sent down there returned"). Our reputation is one of the only things we have going for us right now, and burying our Lawful Good allies under rock, or flooding the tunnel with lava, or blocking any chance for them to escape would ruin that for us.
Rolled 31>>27799133Fate point my be used on a player action or handles by me...ah so much for that writefaggotry in line. In any case I am afraid that the paladins are not avaialbe(their busy dealing with whatever the fuck it is that lies underground). "I cannot control molten rock or fire only water.">>27799208"I don't got enough explosives for that not to mention these bastards can obvsiouly tunnel and survive the wicked heat. Wish I could do that still got to fix my ride otherwise a certain someone is gonna be pissed."
>>27799263I was sorta implying pull them out, then blow up the tunnel.But we don't have the firepower it seems.
Rolled 89>>27799263Those who never returned were the people stationed down there. Then a crusade was declared so they are ALL down there.In any case I am noticing an awful lot of requests for fate point burning? Burn a fate point?
>>27799269>"I cannot control molten rock or fire only water."Yeah, he's a Marid, not an Afreet.
>>27799304If others approve it, I do. It's a far better use of a rogue 100 really.
>>27799269Well, unless it's going to wreck our Mobile Fortress I'm fine with handing off the planning to you.Because, you know...you have every single pertinent datapoint available to you, and I'm working on hints and guesses.>>27799304So burn that fate point. Save our asses from our foolishness in not getting on a war footing immediately after our boons, please.If we need actions, then go with the above combat plan I suppose. Maybe the Ravager fleet will take a few of the shells the ghouls are lobbing at us.
Rolled 86>>27799304Sorta need more then just two votes to confirm otherwise I need actions.
>>27799558Burn the fatepoint, we are not equipped for this situation.
>>27799558A fatepoint is now
>>27799558I'm pretty sure it's consensus. We don't have any way out of this situation...>>27799133This is a good plan, but it won't do in this situation.
>>27799616Except that ever elusive "third option" that for the love of us we can barely ever find.
>>27799558Burn it.>>27799638Yeah, not even I'm clever enough to figure that out here... ;_;
>>27799638We're damned good at the fourth option.Crystal machines, psionic viruses, attacking the wrong base, last standsWe're fucking Einstein at that.
Rolled 20Fate point burnedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D4QIf4Ot7oYou are No-Mad no body ever listens to the sane guy you swear. But ah well what can you expect from a world that went insane? In any case though you are trudging out the door and on top of the tower which was when the ash bloods got a good look at you...and promptly starting scrambling away so hard some of actually fell of the tower they were so desperate to get away. Yup. That is what you get for being the only sane one this crazy as world. So you jacked into a hardline and sent a message. "payment recieved and confirmed just to warn you though No-Mad this is the last time can your faction too many at home not liking you not being purists." Meanwhile at a certain blimp."RUN FOR LIVEZ ITS NO-MAD OH SWEET MOTHER'S TITTIES RUN RUUNNN."The zeppelins began to desperately turn so hard and bandits were so desperate to escape that some were actually falling off plunging to their death. Meanwhile holes were poping in their air sacs and others were bumping into each other. Some zeppelins exploded while others were lit on fire and crashed down to the surface far below. Meanwhilehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySXsFk3v-_E related.From out of nowhere a hail storm of missiles, laser, and railgun blasts began to erupt out of nowhere towards the Ravager craft and even the Ghoulish Mobile base which was forced to retreat the force of it was so strong. The return fire blasted away stealth fields...revealing an Urgosh warband.
>>27799694Goddamn the Memor days were fun. I liked it back when EDE dropped hella fucking obvious hints so I didn't have to actually think to figure anything out.Have you ever QM'd before these 2 one, EDE?
>>27799776Where do you get this music?*proceeds to rock out*
Rolled 59>>27799776The hail of fire continued blasting Ravager craft out of the skies and when they were grounded charged the ravagers were seen seemingly fight a invisible foe. When it was revealed Urgosh strike forces were narrowing in at the Ravagers despite the monsters, ghouls and worse. The fighting was fierce down around the ground wrecks of zeppelins and Ravager craft crashed and fought the onslaught of the monsters wanting to partake in the flesh...while they were distracted THAT was when the Urgash teams hit. They crumbled not even Ravagers could deal with the assault so they withdrew...much more cleanly then the Ash Bloods who seemed obsessed with destroying each other so as to leave a distraction behind while they made a getaway. The battle raged for a seemingly long time the havoc was so much as the Urgosh gradually grind the enemy into paste that they would later use for their pancake batter. After that they loaded up and left...taking with them wrecks, corpses, and more.
>>27799850 Forget the music, where does he get the inspiration to write these stories/create this setting?
>>27799929Note to my word document, Ash Bloods aren't very coherent.
Rolled 12>>27799929Actions?Ghoulish Mobile Base is retreating.Urgosh forces have withdrawn.Ash Blood forces are gone...well at least the ones who survived anyway.Ravagers withdrew who knows when they shall return. No-Mad meanwhile was last seening conversing with Captain Morgan. Who stated that there shall not be next time and arranged payments for some reason. Actions? You can still do stuff this turn. Free warning a lot of nasty stuff is floating around as well as critters at the moment.
>>27799776>yfw 22 chapters we had an uberawesome hero in a digga nigga duty that we never used>22. Fucking. Chapters
>>27799929All the wrecks? Not even one?Dammit, we need to know what ungodly energy absorbers they were using.As is I also have some idea's how to counter that, but still knowledge is power.
>>27799997Are the crusaders still crusading down there? Anyword from Loocha?
Rolled 81>>27799981Their really not when their panicking.

I couldn't handle the INSANE dice god shenanigans so it died. Seriously I have yet to see a quest with rolls like that to this day. That was also when I discovered I had a dice goddess 'fan'. Second time I tried after figuring out how to deal with dice got too busy. EDE was the first time I ran a Civ though.>>27800074Yes I am an asshole I know. That is what happens when you just wait for heroes to show up instead of looking for them. Plus you never delve into his backstory...or even thought about HOW he managed to endure what he did.

Damn that would've hurt a lot more if we hadn't gotten that fate point...but as-is we're still down by nearly half our heroes.
>>27800122That was your first civ? Seriously?Perhaps you are a real "hero" of QM'ing out of nowhere.
Rolled 10>>27800122Oh yeah, ask Overseer No-Mad about his past. (we tried asking him before, but we never know what specific questions to ask until it's revealed/too late) How'd he survive that ordeal? What're his connections with the Urgsha and the Ash Bloods?
>>27800178Hmm, however they did it it's clear they had some amazing heat/electrical sinks on their craftOne solution I can imagine is the creation of railguns or coilguns to launch solid metal pikes, to pierce enemy craft and act as a conductor to bypass their heat sinks and electrify the vulnerable innards.
>>27800178What's also disconcerting is Master Exporer, who is basically our Nova Kong, and can see ambushes while at the same time being supported by MK ninja was. . .ambushed
>>27800240Whatever we'll do, it's obvious that investing exclusively in high-technology isn't the way to go. We need some good, old-fashioned hypersonic projectile lobbers.
>>27800274Yes...I know...TECTUS W/ PSIONIC STEALTH CRYSTALS
Rolled 14>>27800183Yes, it was seriously. Whatever you do don't tell the Quest Generals about me. I have heard that they have been doing creepy this with QMs lately in addition to the usual hate and wretched sadness. As is I have enjoyed the fact that I was never mentioned there. Also EDE was my A.I. persona.>>27800230"I had rations, air tanks, and recyclers that is how I survived.""Urgsha know me through you. The Ashbloods meanwhile probably heard the stories about me or might worked with them for a while. You would be surprised how much they hate the sane.">>27800274They weren't ambushed just overwhelmed.

Rolled 100>>27801533In the swamp it would of simply have been swallowed whole. >>27801503Basically thanks to Aduro not willing to share their better tech they got blocked something fierce from military oriented research.(not sharing dem shields) despite some Aduro facilities having the capability they never got very far.>>27801572You seem to figure about where they lived.
>>27801617We ought to improve the defensive and offensive capability of our shields.Such as perhaps reflector shields to bounce back targest to the source.
Rolled 37>>27801646Hoohooohoooo!!>>27801656Yeah, we should. We also need to get some Rad-resistant ones, and improve our Thermal Shields so we can actually float over lava and not be fucked by it. Right now though, I'm thinking we'll spit out some improved shields...then cart them down to the paladins so they can keep whatever is down there occupied for longer.
>>27801690>then cart them down to the paladins so they can keep whatever is down there occupied for longer.Presuming they aren't dead.
>>27801708Yes, presuming. They were hella-badasses though, and they're fighting evil (which they and especially their boss get scaling bonuses against) so I wouldn't be surprised if they were holding their own but desperate for resupply.
>>27800776>We're still only armed with basic SMGs, Shotguns, and Pistols.We need to change that. Though not completely switch from solid to energy, but rather, imagine a rifle with a laser sights that meltings things while you aim.
>>27801745>they were holding their own but desperate for resupply.Which I suggested we send them down a few turns ago, but whatev
>>27801790Yup. And laser swords for melee.
>>27801790It'd be more accurate to call it a laser rifle with a gun attachment.
>>27801806Sorry bro, we needed a way to survive long enough to get to them. >>27801824You pull the first trigger to shoot at your target and see if it's in line, and if they're hit you pull the second one to fire the laser.
>>27801808Yeah, we did invent those as a PR stunt before the fall. We'd have to checkup if other remnants have the schematics for that tech.Realy why aren't we doing that already? We are a company (almost) united we should be disseminating our info to all our members. Especailly those in the dire situations.
>>27801849Very few schematics/research info has survived. I'm all for assisting our fellows...but I'm not sure we really have the means.
>>27801909Information is still power. If at least we can give our fellows the designs for our shields, they'd be better off.
More glorious writefaggotry incoming from EDE.>>27801933Fair enough, we'll tack that on as an extra action next turn. We could also prioritize sects in resource-scarce areas like ours and send Aquam out on a trip or design water-gathering devices that'd work in their area for them. Hey, if we can get portal-tech going (good luck with that) then we could give them some of our infinite water.
>>27801933Now that I think of it though, we risk them being overrun/our shield technology becoming widely distributed through them getting killed or pillaged if we distribute the shield tech....
>>27801975We ought to give it to only the more powerful sects though, as it falling into the wrong hands (too quickly) isn't good either.

How good is Hazard power amor?(How well can we reverse-engineer things?)What're the hiring costs of the SSC and Hero, the Military Borgs+Hero, and the Demons?I'm thinking we should pick up some demons and maybe get them some cooler heads, or show them glory and wonderful things to eat! It might be an "in" to recruiting/allying the demons.What's "Other"?
Rolled 64>>27802295She does. She just had to wait till things cooled down before she came again. She too has had some good luck.
>>27802295If she doesn't that opens up possibilities, how should our relationship with her continue. Business as usual? Or should things change?Remember, we can now seriously break the water monopoly going on here.
>>27802351We've already broken it slightly, by giving the mutants wells (I hope Aquam didn't go overboard with that...) she probably won't be terribly happy about that.
>>27802334That is both good in that now we can really kickstart the waterfall of fortuneAnd bad, in that it's now confirmed people afar know we're a power in the region.But if anything, she's still gonna need a bigger caravan.
>>27802379>giving out free water>Not just telling them to join us for the free waterWhy in the energy gods name did we decide to effectively hand out the one most valuable resource in the land for free?
>>27802399We could literally flood her with water if we had Aquam with us.
>>27802416Goodwill with the Urgsha. Potential allies later. Keeping down the zombies in the city.
>>27802448We could've done that by taking people into the fold.Well, if anything at least this will hurt the other factions selling water. Then again, now we've pissed them off even more and I expect them to come after us soon.Would've been swell if the people we gave the free water too had a reason to protect us.
Rolled 6>>27802329Special Mark arms are crafted by a genius of weapons masters basically their made a some group who kept on making better weapons despite the Fall.You ask for type of vehicle I got it.GUARDIAN series armor is the stuff used by the infamous and incrediably powerful harvester guardians no don't ask how I got it. Hazard power armor is the best you can find for hazardous conditions and more. As for reverse engineering I wouldn't reccomend it Hazard armor was top of the line pre fall and Guardian armor oh I wouldn't want to what would happen if you tried to peak under the hood of that. You are going to have to talk to them about that. Borgs want tech. Super Soldiers want Dr. Picli for some reason. Demons want good fun, food, and drink. Other is whatever you suggest. I state the stats and cost.
>>27802485Memor or Tectus MercsDoes she have a possessed Boom-City?How much for the SPECIAL WEAPONS (energy based ones preferred)?How much for the GUARDIAN armor?Ask the Borgs what they want to join?Ask the Super Soldiers why they're looking for Picli?Ask they Demons if they'd like to join up? We can, in fact, promise them excellent food and fun right down in our tunnels very promptly.What does she have in the way of hovercraft? Does she have any vehicles of interest?
>>27802485>You ask for type of vehicle I got it.You wouldn't happen to have any access to marcus tech would you?I've heard they've got some interesting spider vechs. Specifically, plasma spider vechs.
>>27802485You know the ravagers that flew by hear? They had some incredible energy dampers and sinks on their vehicles.Would you have any idea on how to aquire one of those for us? We're willing to pay VERY handsomely.
>>27802621Also ask her how the fuck Ghouls got cloaking technology.
>>27802485>Borgs want tech. Super Soldiers want Dr. Picli for some reason. Demons want good fun, food, and drink.Are all of those up for permanent hire? We have considerable resources to provide.
Rolled 3>>27802585 Memor Nightmares or Storm Wardens go for hi tech as payment. Tectus scouts was the new stealth shieldsNo idea what a boom city is.All my stuff depends upon what you are willing to barter for them.Borgs want tech.Super Soldiers say its due to their mission to track down, keep safe, and then deliver. Demons would love it.I have any and all hovercraft. Vehicles of interest I don't know you will have to ask and then I can make the call. I don't know about the specials.>>27802589Hm in fact I do how do you think I get Mark arms?>>27802621No idea considering they raid hi tech installations like no tomarrow I can't say.>>27802653I do know about the ghouls though...gonna need some quite the bargain for that sort of info>>27802721If you can afford it.
>>27802842What's the Super Soldier hero's name and abilities? Ask him who he's supposed to deliver her to?What's the Borg hero's name, where's he come from? Where do his loyalties lie?(You still haven't answered how good we are at reverse-engineering stuff.)
>>27802842The Demons and Borg, we're hiring for sure.Super Soldiers mission is posing some seriously scary ramifications.Also we are ESPECIALLY interested if you could find us an programmed borg-spiders or even a borgST from the forrest of spiders. We have heard the legends of how dangerous that can be.We're in a position to do some bargaining, what do you want for the info?
>>27802947And quite importantly, is there a time-limit/sensitivity on their protection of Dr. Picli?
>>27802970We aren't biotech. We have no facilities even remotely geared towards doing anything with biotech. We couldn't control them if we got them. They're useless to us except as something to outcompete the horrors downstairs with worse horrors that coordinate with each other better and have training from a Master Pilot.
>>27803024I was hoping we could reconvert them to pure borg tech with energy variant. Or at least program them to serve us, so long as we feed them, without having to work on the biotechnical aspect at all.If anything, it'd make an interesting pet.
Rolled 93>>27802947Super Soldier hero's is known simply as the Colonel abilities are CLASSIFIED.Deliverance of Dr. Picli is of two options to a desginated safe zone of which I cannot say. Basically we are to secure her safety. Borg hero's name is SUPAH, I came from a horizon. My loyalties lie to my borgs and upgrades.Your reverse engineer is decent as a corp you would of been used to stealing tech unfortunately this facility does not specialize in it. Thus for sensitive pieces or especially secured it is not recommended.>>27802970Eh we got some of those actually. Why the hell do you want to them? Their sorta rapid you know.>>27802990Time Limit not any more in the old days though certainly. As for sensitivity I cannot say why we must do so.
>>27803113Tell the Super Soldiers that we have Dr. Picli (as if they didn't know), but that we're going to need her for quite a while before we're willing to let her go. But when we are ready they'll be allowed to take her completely peacefully (provided she agrees).Ask the Borg's if our technology is sufficiently advanced to secure their services, and for how long. We treat our allies well.So I'm guessing that GUARDIAN armor and SPECIAL Mark weapons are EXTREMELY well secured, huh? I think the trade/hire list is as follows:>Hover VehiclesSome APCs, some tanks, some special platforms>Weapons/ArmorSpecial Mark Arms, SPECIAL GUARDIAN armor, Hazard Series Power Armor>InfoGhouls>HireDemons definitely, SSC and Borgs dependent upon the answers to the questions at the top.All of this is dependent upon price. Tell her she can have as much water as she wants, and then some. She can also pick up a refill on water if she can find a Water-Elemental in the city named "Aquam Vitae" and tell it she's from us.
Rolled 20>>27803260What variant of plasma spider tank?>>27803257That is going to cost a whole lot of water and delicious tech. surprised no one whats the 'other' such as memor or something
>>27803260It's obvious some bait from EDE, but if we play it smart they could be a huge boon.
>>27803257This is entirely better, though I would like to add a marcus spider tank that we can look to manufacture/add energy variance (laser tanks on the roof would be a big help to the crusaders).Beyond that, I'm especially leery of hiring the Super Soldiers. We have much to lose with letting them have Picli.
>>27803300Nobody trusts a memorI would rather spit on my dead grandpa's grave than trust a single one
>>27803300We're trying to play good guys...so Memor are out of the question. I wish someone would come up with another idea though.>>27803304...If you must. Marcus has had <x> years to perfect the safeguards on his technology though, and he was always an expert at reverse-engineering so he knows all the ways you usually go about it.
>>27803364I thought he was all about not putting safeguards?The memor managed to do well enough reverse engineering without him. ANd for all there evil, they tended to be technical idiots.Though I admit, it won't be an easy process nor garanuteed as feasible, but we can at least try.
>>27803399I seem to remember that they did terribly at reverse engineering after he left.He was all about not putting failsafes on his equipment, but he sure wouldn't let just anyone replicate it so I'm sure it has extra-super-double-mega-safeguards against copying.
>>27802485>OtherYou wouldn't be able to get your hands on a . . .erm, lover strain of fleshwoman would you?We could use a population replenishing and a boost to morale.
>>27803443Still managed to make borg and borgST variants.
>>27803483Those were developed from scratch by Richard and Clora with shitloads of resource-investment and time.
Rolled 24>>27803460"..hAha let me get this straight you want a BROOD strain? That is going to cost you a fucking fortune."
>>27803502Are you absolutely sure? Could've sworn they used them as the base.Still, Torg also managed to reverse engineer one of Marcus tech to be more explosive.
Rolled 69>>27803543Because he orignally designed it with him.
>>27803543Heh, I think it's more that he added bits of his explosive self to the powder-stores...
>>27803560>>27803565Very well, then forget I asked.We're gonna need something to give us that same kind of edge down there though.
Rolled 99So who do you want to hire or want?Remember a special OTHER is going on all you got to do is ask or suggest.
>>27803572If we hired him directly he could build us even just a light ST factory, like the Memor had, and help us to design energy based ST's. He's done bigger things for others, even jury rigged mobile forts for the Guard.But even we're no where near that profitable (yet).
>>27803614 someone save this thread please
>>27803614It's this list, but we need the answers to the questions first.>>27803257
Rolled 20>>27803257Anything else also don't forget the special OTHER you wont be getting that again in all likelihood.
>>27803614>Hire Demons and BorgsI'm sure later a bolt of imagination for other will strike, but that's not now and by then it'll be too late
>>27803672Is Marcus for hire? (just kidding)How about a diplomacy-focused hero?
>>27803672OKAY okay, give me a second.
>>27803690>How about a diplomacy-focused hero?That will be our neighbors. Potentially.
>>27803726I guesso. Let's wait on this guy then >>27803694(though I really wanted to get 2 more turns in but at this rate we'll be lucky to get the actions for this one after trade.)
Rolled 18>>27803690There are in fact TWO Marcus(the former Memor and trader extraordinaire) and Markus(engineering genius). Though good luck buying one of their services.
>>27803672Okay, so you ever heard of the Queen Sheba's mines? You know, the one where an entire mining colony was trapped for one and half centuries, and the people there evolved to the underground?Heard something about a race of badgermen being blind but somehow able to see, noses that can detect scents through even dirt, or power arms and claws that allow them to dig through even solid stone, or other weird stuff. That legend, like a lot of legends these days, wouldn't happen to be true would it?
>>27803764Oh yeah, the coal badgers.Bet they'd be pretty interested in our gem mines.
Rolled 68>>27803764"Eh you want Coba? They got wicked claws capable of even tearing through power armor, amazing scent, and are blind. But Queen Sheba who those ones are gonna extra pricey. I can get some though. Shit I heard those particular ones mutated even further acquiring razor wire fur and powerful jaws with a noxious acids/saliva. I can get those ones sure."Anything else?
>>27803811Hmm, if they could be Dorfs interested in just jewels it'd be awesome.
Rolled 63>>27803869"...Oh no those fuckers are crazy hardcore mofos. Even worse the Dwarves. Sweet mother why would you want some of them?"Not to mention their pretty racist and greedy.
>>27803862Well today we're on a mood for a spending spree, so yes. In fact, we've got plenty of, at least for now, quite useless gems lying about that I feel they'd be pretty interested in. Take a chest of these as an incentive for them.We're interested in any with a more. . .volcanic line of expertise, and beyond a doubt, subterranean combat as well.
>>27803943>at least for now, quite useless gemsHey! We're going to be reintroducing that as fiat currency. someday.
>>27803900So I guess it's this list >>27803257Plus all the jewels she can carry/that we have to hire Coba.Tell us the cost and we'll confirm.
Rolled 36>>27803943In that case your going to want the Volciv, Volcan, and hm tunnel fighting I think ah the Silcith. But oh boy that is quite the order there. Trade has been confirmed. Want to hire anyone else?actions?
Rolled 36>>27803257Hm Super Soldiers agree but they will be taking her with them unless certain conditions are not met. Borgs say the tech is good for a few turns of service. After that though unless you develop something new and good they will leave.Secured certainly how well is unknown.
>>27804020That'll be it I think. Can we pay at least most of the cost for hirelings in advance? (Aside to the board members)Never know where we'll be when she comes back.
Rolled 75>>27804060"Sure but man I don't know how you can keep affording all these damned mercs. It must be taking a bite of your coffers. But ah well that is a corp for you. They should arrive next turn or so."
>>27804090"As long as you keep profiting off of selling water, we keep being able to afford them."
Rolled 23>>27804108water/food is only good for native mercs non elite. Some of these guys you want are not native.In any case is this thread archived yet? Also actions?

Also, there's obviously a very famous very dangerous person on their way to fuck us over. My current plan would be to (next turn) scout out the Ash Bandit bases, then the turn after that have the Fortress and Bases head over to one and take it out with the SSC accompanying. If LOOTYA is found by then we'd send him along as well. If we can manage to jointly coordinate with the Urgsha that'd be great.My alternate plan is to have the SSC clear out the Busted Bunker (because we could use the expansion in pop. cap and I get the feeling it has some awesome stuff in it)I wish our scouting hero hadn't died.>>27804522Are you calling the thread at this?

>>27804571>If we can manage to jointly coordinate with the Urgsha that'd be great.That's out of the question, his last effort was the final save for us.In addition, he has superior orders to work with a figure he doesn't like. And if there's someone he doesn't like, there's someone we should be afraid of.Oh, and I've been having an idea on how to make the tesla tower potentially effective against enemy vechs with electrical sinks on the exterior. Magnetic drilling devices. Launched via electromagnetic propulsor cannons, they magnetically attach to the hulks of vehicles and drill deep into the enemy vech, to allow a conducting point to bypass the enemy electrical sinks.
>>27804600It would be lending our (petty) military might onto their operation, not saving us. It'd gain rep with them, and gain our military forces some experience. If you'd like to dismiss the idea go ahead, but don't do it out of hand.I like that idea, I'll assign it this action list (if we're having an action list this round)
>>27804600Alternatively, we just launch straight up magnets at their vehicle and the power from the Tesla Tower increased their strength tenfold, drawing the aircraft together and crashing them.
>>27804630>If you'd like to dismiss the idea go ahead, but don't do it out of hand.I'm not going to do that, but I just feel there's going to be something going down between us and Urgsha by related events that neither of us will like
>>27804635Or we develop cannons that create an ionized pathway through the air so the effectiveness of the Tesla coil is increased. Combine that with switching the polarization of the flux capacitor attached to the beryllium sphere, and the alternating currents might short out any electrical sinks (or even make them explode!)
Rolled 63Think I am going to call it a night here will stick around to answer questions.
>>27804757Okay, what was the progress on laser weaponry? (do we have any usable weapons yet?)
Rolled 73>>27804757Just a warning you guys are a fuckHUGE target. That fate point only delayed things. Its going to get much worse. Granted it may take a little time but shit is going to get ugly.>>27804771You do as in Lasenades and laser cannons are man portable.
>>27804771Speaking of weapons, had another 'bright' idea.Flash Burn Grenades.Like flash bangs, only 10 times flashier and with third degree burns included.
>>27804757Do we have an estimate on turns before Aquam and our scouts for Lootya come back?>>27804784I know, that's why we're trying to build up our military...it's just we only have so many ideas, and it's late at night so fewer anons are around to pipe in.Any suggestions on paths to take? We seem to be hitting the Wall of Diminishing Returns with shield-tech and lasers. >>27804787Write these down.
>>27804757Is upgrading the Mobile Bases a good route to take?
>>27804825>We seem to be hitting the Wall of Diminishing Returns with shield-tech and lasers.Only because it's kinda non specific.Think of unorthodox ways to imrpove, reflector shields, crushing shields. Even lasers can have interesting variations.Like a Dazzle effect. Lasers of such different colors every second so as to blind and confuse enemies.I'm also going to be writing down a lot more idea's for tommorow.
>>27804869Yeah, sorry about that...It's just pretty late.
>>27804869>>27804825But overall yes, we must consider alternate methods of military improvement.
>>27804825You chose a REALLY tough gig to play. As you are stuck in between two forces human and mutant. THEN you decided to play nice. Unlike other similar rejects/outcasts in your position who put aside their differences and go bandit together cause FUCK YOU assholes.Human-><-mutanthuman-><-human/mutant-><-mutantIs how it works if you don't stick to a single side usually. Putting you in even TOUGHER spot. You motherfuckers seemed to want to go full HARD mode.
>>27804899That isn't even going into terrain choice or not so stellar rolls.
>>27804899I don't know why we had to be mutants. Personally I had hoped we would've survive more or less humanely intact since the fall thanks to our shielding.But maybe those Aduro reactors aren't as safe as we had though.
>>27804899Well we went full retard-mode with the Memor, despite being in one of the most deadly places on Earth. Should we say "fuck everything" and go evilmode? I'm not sure we can, with Mr. Light and the Paladins already here and good-aligned.
>>27804931That's not how to run a business.This isn't the "no matter how much it hurts, make them hurt more", we're in it for profit now.
>>27804930Yeah, I don't know why we had to be mutants either. I think it was stipulated in the fluff somewhere. Something to do with the Mentis-Industria.
>>27804931We promised to go full pragmatic mode.
>>27804942I'm not sure we're in an adequately secure position to be "in it for profit" and not "in it for survival".
>>27804931Not exactly viable I had been hinting at another possible option that fits the corp deal to the goddamn T. Problem is your odd corp nor have you picked up on it. I am gonna guess this is going to be a short civ. >>27804944You voted for it Mutant Corp which was stipulated in the Civ people voted for. A very tough combination to do.
>>27804944Not really. MI was designed as an artificial hivemind without the need for mutation, that was one of it's design purposes.In fact according to the fluff we were supposed to enjoy a certain degree of human purity. Maybe other's have done better, but we sure didn't.
>>27804978Which thread did you hint heaviest for it in?
>>27804978>I am gonna guess this is going to be a short civ.Not while we have anything to say about it!Which isn't much but still!
>>27805015 That feel when double-100s fucks you over harder than 1s
>>27805026To be fair those 1s didn't do you much good inn the longer then not so long term. After that you failed to use it all to its maximum potential I feel like I am fucking THROWING money and solutions at you. Even gave you a warning still nope fucking feels like the beginning of my first civ with me dropping tips and hints goddamn everywhere.
>>27805012Like there are not that many I picked up on several options and started hinting at them right away.
>>27805057It takes a bit of time to grow into our new role. It took us like 12 threads with the Memor. The learning curve should be quicker for this one because of the veteran players having experience there...but it still takes time.We'll get there...if we can last long enough.
>>27805087Actually the Memor never quite did and when they finally got a rough idea terrible tactics finally caught up with them.
>>27805105>Actually the Memor never quite did You kidding? The Memor finally did what they were born to do.Be evil
>>27805105Well...yeah, but you run a no-punches-pulled Civ. It's great, but unusual We got better near the end.Anyway, final question before I go to sleep. When's the next thread planned?
>>27805117Now that they pulled of gloriously truly the one of the finest examples for a chaotic evil civilization there is.What I am meant however was how you refused largely refused to do what you had a fucking AMAZING advantage in the long run like holy fuck. Worst part is you are saying no to to an entire research tree over again. Seriously though if you don't plan to fucking mutate then DON'T play mutants. Its not worth the rep and pop rate penalty. >>27805126Either Tomorrow or Tuesday.
>>27805170>Seriously though if you don't plan to fucking mutate then DON'T play mutants. Its not worth the rep and pop rate penalty.Yeah, that was a major oversight that really bit us in the ass.>A single poorly thoughout sentence somewhere proves disasterous all over again
>>27805170Hmm, but we don't have biotechnologies...I guess we'll have to pursue some...or something.
>>27805170How do we integrate mutation though?I know the Supermutants were both a military faction but how did they balance machine and mutation?
>>27805199>>27805207>we don't have bio technologiesOr do we? We must remember the biochemistry is also a source of energy.Think of the novakon, who sprayed powerful radiation, or the plasma beasts of the swamp. We must balance out energy technologies and mutation in one.. . .somehow
>>27805170I swear makes me feel like want to beat a motherfucker with another motherfucker. >>27805199You can mutate without penalty. the biotech just made it so you could SO much fucking more to play around with not to mention dat stacking potential. >>27805207They didn't they largely lost their tech capabilities with the last of their human allies died out. SO they went full on mutant with military training and tech support. Only tech knowledge they had was how to maintain, fix, repair, and threats/counters. As for integration that is only a problem if you get really freaky with your mutations tech compatibility might become an issue.
>>27805233>They didn't they largely lost their tech capabilities with the last of their human allies died out.>SO they went full on mutant>with military training and tech support. Only tech knowledge they had was how to maintain, fix, repair, and threats/counters.Hmmm. . .we have 2000 humans out of 30,000 non humans. Urgsha a mutant supremacist.>Implications
>>27805233Well, I guess we'll pursue mutation then. Do you guys want to go the monstrous horrors route and become acid-spitting ultra-tough automatically drug producing monsters with claws on mutated arms coming out of our backs, armored carapaces, and integrated flesh-eating worms shooting out of our hands?>>27805278I'm not sure that's viable. We have 7000 paladins underneath us right now, who knows what conditions the Super Soldiers will withdraw Dr. Picli on, and think of the mass-desertions if we killed off a segment of our population. (though sending them on dangerous missions might be a different story...at least one with *slightly* less morale penalties)
>>27805233So do we just do >Basic 1Pursue mutation <x>
>>27805324Or, like what happened to most of us, we have an "accidental core leak". Now, the mutants have evolved to survive that sort of stuff. The humans? They were slowly dying out anyway.This is a grim thought.
>>27805278Urgsha are different for one they are NOT supers. Two tech capability is unknown.three tech is lower then Super Mutants has they had black listed toys to play around with.four they didn't hate humans.five and most important they were humbled despite their great power unlike the Urgsha. >>27805345There are two primary ways.1 to choose a mutation and try to unlock it2 mutagen is found (suggestions are welcome)>>27805354You never did find out what the vault experiment may have been or if it even existed.
>>27805324More along the lines of energy based mutation.Bodies draw natural power from the generators, and gain an inreased boost in speed, strength, agility. Like ghouls, but on power not radiation.
>>27805354Station the humans down in the vault, some of our radioactive military-grade uranium gets put in the fresh coat of paint down the corridors...(I guess that'd be covered under "Free Cheap Shot Action" and MK Ninja...)
oh goddamnit am i too late? have the traders already left? guys we have the shields that we upgraded JUST FOR THEM did noone remember those? fucking fuck
>>27805388Too obvious, they'd smell it in an instant. It mustn't look like we are actively trying to do something to the humans.In addition, this is all just hypothetically speaking.
>>27805371Okay then. Any sort of limits on what mutations can be/do?
>>27805405We bought everything they had to sell and then some.And yeah, we have shields out the nose right now.
>>27805405We have shields that we upgraded just for them?Oh, the reliability tech. I think that's just integrated in all of our shields now. A lot has happened, read through the thread.
>>27805409The more complicated the mutation the longer it takes and the more liklihood something goes wrong. Which is why its wise to build up a support base and like a pyramid slowly make your way to the key mutation other wise you may expect to pick up some negatives. Or you can always pick up a negative mutation if it to boost yourself(even get two positives out of the deal maybe).
>>27805418but we rolled a 95 to make shields perfect to their spesifications that i am sure they would have BENT OVER BACWARDS to get their hands on. but i guess we can be a mega corp that doesnt sell any products... yeah that'l work out fiiiine
>>27805450They did bend over backwards, to a degree.We pretty much emptied her caravan and have 3 merc groups under our employ
>>27805467Good luck keeping such elite mercs though. They aren't cheap.
>>27805477You're tell us.
>>27805435i just finished doing so and in none of edes updates does he note that those modifications have been added to our standerd shields. we made those just for the traders not for ourselvs.
>>27805483Unlike bandits you have spend an action respeccing or upgrading. They get that shit for free.
>>278054673 ELITE merc groups at that. And the best weapons+armor, and we have a shitload of other mercs incoming.>>27805477How many loot per-turn would we have to spend for the Borg mercs?>>27805483Eh, sorry then. On the upside our shields are hella upgraded, we have laser weapons, and we have all our Mobile Bases fully stealthed, and one upgraded with enhanced weapons+defenses.Not sure how much good it'll do, but EDE was always bothering us about not upgrading our weapons systems with the Memor sooo....
>>27805513Like, we literally have stealthed walking buildings. One bumped into the Ghoul base on accident.BTW Alede, we were never given the info on where/how the Ghouls got stealth tech+a goddamn mobile base in a resource-scarce area.
>>27805467they did no bending. they brought us product and we paid them for it. all we did was hemmorage resourses we arent doing any actual trading. they bring us things they know we want so they are able to make profit off of us. we COULD have turned the tables and gotten better deals because we finaly had somthing THEY wanted, but fuck being profitable amiright?
>>27805530Try being here and arguing for it next time. If you're not here to state your viewpoint then it will go blissfully ignored. (trust me, I know)
>>27805545i know im fucking kicking myself i checked for this thread 3 times earlier today but i only found it about 2-3 hours ago and i have been reading as fast as i could since and i get to the end just too late
>>27805513basic mercs take 1 loot per a turn.Advanced takes 2 loot.Elite takes 5(borgs).A badass unit takes an extra 1 loot.Heroics are double.>>27805525"those ghouls come from an old military base you know. Which has all manner of advanced tech. That mobile base was their pride and joy. They rarely use it unless they got something big planned. What you think stealth tech is rare if you got hi-tech access? Not true the problem is having the better stealth or detector its an arms race really. Too bad getting past advanced stealth is nightmare. Shit even getting past basic is expensive as hell."
>>27805566Mmm, we're going to have to invest in detectors then.
>>27805566Explains how everyone snuck up on us. That artillery might not've even been so far off (I actually think it was from the Mobile Base).Guess it's lucky we even detected the Mobile Base then.>>27805566...Sorry to beat the dead horse, but could we get those scouting/wellmaking estimates?
>>27805576Basic detectors not hard...the advanced stuff though that stuff was protected to hell and back BEFORE the fall. >>27805586Scouting is for what exactly?Wellmaking should be done in a turn or two more.
>>27805589The scout-party sent out for Grandmaster Lootya
>>27805604Ah they should be back next turn or so. Tracking ain't easy especially in that sort of carnage.
