Rolled 21>>27829639forgot my name and rollalso last thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27812826/
Rolled 62Ohhh man, I'm finally the first one on a thread! Yes!
Rolled 59>>27829655So, we're currently under assault from both the surface and underground and as I recall, and both of those forces are sufficiently advanced+numerous that our tower defenses are doing effectively nothing to them. So how are our Mobile Bases+Fortress doing?Is our basement in danger of being breached, and everyone in the tower dying?How about our surface entrance?
Rolled 44>>27829741They seem to be holding themselves back for some unknown reason. As for our defenses did do something to them its just there was damn many of them. Mobile Fortress and bases are currently near our tower. The monsters seem to be avoiding them as the membrane continues to expand linking the spires. While both the membrane and spires grow upward. Basement in danger is unknown considering their tunneling capabilities they could breakthrough but how long it would take is unknown.No on in the tower is dying at this time.Surface entrance is crawling with monsters and gore from the glowy figure turning adding eyes and nose to the smiley face.
Rolled 89>>27829794Would it be possible to withdraw our forces from the Vault/Basement and bring them into the upper stories of the tower...then collapse access routes from the ground floor to the top floors, but keep its entrance to the surface intact?I'm getting at allowing underground monsters to pour out of the underground onto the surface via our tower. Where they would hopefully fight each other.
Rolled 76>>27829825You could indeed.
Rolled 15>>27829872And could Overseer No-Mad do this consequence free (aside from having to repair it later) for us using his Special Ability?Also, would it be possible to dispatch a swarm of our intelligent-shielding drones to protect the Glowing Human on the Spire-Monster, and program them to go over to another Spire-Monster if he jumps on them?
Rolled 9>>27829907Actually, could we program them to float/protect him to where-ever he orders them to?
Rolled 55>>27829907Certainly. THough its worth noting that at this point the monsters seems most keen on jumping into the lava lake. >>27829946Considering he speaks in gibberish I am not sure if that could easily be done.
Rolled 15>>27829962I wonder what would happen if Glowy Joe and Overseer No-Mad met. I don't suppose we have any demons lounging around that might be able to modify one of our shields to be like Dr. Picli's shield? I also don't suppose our drones have our updated thermal shields, or stealth shields or anything? Would it be possible to upgrade them and send them out before the monster hops in the lava lake? Do we have any contact with Aquam Vitae? Are our water reserves enough that we could release them and they'd reach the lava lake, solidifying it so the monster would have more difficult jumping in?
Rolled 83>>27830021Not really.They have indeed been updated.Doubtful.No contact with Aquam Vitae at this time.If we drained our lake storage units possibly if we drained it all certainly. Though we would be out of water then...
Rolled 23>>27830143Does our magic water-synthesizer produce at a rate that would allow us to survive and replenish our stores over time?Would it be possible to equip a drone to give the Insane Glowing Human Dr. Picli's personal, modified shield?
Rolled 53>>27830171Certainly though good luck of convincing Picli to hand over her personal shield.
Rolled 36>>27830201Are there any ways we know of for making our shields explode? Do we have the ability to manufacture explosives?Would Dr. Picli be willing to give up her shield for the Glowing man? I wouldn't be surprised if she was intrigued by the touch of her madness that she saw in him. Alternately, would she like to ride along with the drone-swarm and help him out, it might be fun and in her energy-state she's nigh-unkillable right?And you didn't answer whether our water synthesizer (along with reserves from the Mobile Bases and Fortress) would allow us to survive/recover from releasing all of our water.
Rolled 87>>27830276Explosive shield design is not available to us.We can indeed manufacture explosives.She doesn't want to stating that some of the stuff done to it was gift meant personally for her. It would be most rude to pass it to someone else.As for her helping she is currently having a discussion with the Colonel. Not to mention she isn't a fighter just a scientist.Water synethesizer can only produce so much. You could survive but it would be tough for a while.
Meanwhile, a rather not so brightly Mr. Light returned. As usual, dimness for him is a sobering sign of ill tidings."I don't believe this. They turned on me. They were only waiting for the little one to leave. Couldn't take us both."The figure of light shook his head."5 Jinn and their slaves, even I can't do anything against that. Saal cut off contact with Aduro, the false gods demanding sacrifices again. Mmm, at least it was nice to see my beloved park filled with light and the laughter of a child again. . ."A figure of light slowly returns to his office.
Rolled 34>>27830343Hmm, okay. I hope Aquam Vitae comes back to ditch us out of the water-scarcity I'm about to suggest we get into...I propose we send out a swarm (half of all) of our our shield drones to protect the Glowing Man on the Spire-Monster, then when he's done with that they carry him to No-Smokey/the monsters over No-Smokey chanting "Good fight in there, lotsa boom, lotsa dakka, dose glowing guys your friends if you can find them". Alternately, depending on the advice given to the questions in parentheses below this, they float him either up to the floating Mobile Base, over to the waiting Mobile Base, or to another Spire Monster.(that section pending advisement on how the Paladins would likely react to a glowing man in power armor crushing their enemies with them...so long as they don't see him do anything evil it should be fine right? He's not *that* well known is he?)In the meantime, we release all of our water reserves onto the surface (try and direct it so that they'll hit the lava-lake the Spire-Monster is running towards if possible)Have our 1 of our Mobile Bases move out with our Mobile Fortress to begin attacking one of the Spire Monsters next to the one that uprooted itself. They should be in stealth mode (for what it's worth) until they're in optimum firing range of it, and/or until their out of the sea of monsters assaulting our base. The other 2 (pending advice on the first section) should either stay near our base as a reserve, or deploy with the Mobile Fort+Mobile Base and assist them...then break off and try to burn a path through the monsters and fliers to No-Smokey for the Shield-Drones to carry Glowy Joe through. The Mobile Fort+Mobile Base should try to burn any fliers in the path the Shield Drone swarm will follow.Meanwhile, we withdraw our forces from the lower levels of the tower, and No-Mad selectively demolishes so that there's a path from the vault/tunnel entrances in the vault to the surface. Cont.
>>27830612>I propose we send out a swarm (half of all) of our our shield drones to protect the Glowing Man on the Spire-MonsterWell, do we really want the spire monster dead or should we even expect him to die before GJ gets bored?> then when he's done with that they carry him to No-Smokey/the monsters over No-Smokey chanting "Good fight in there, lotsa boom, lotsa dakka, dose glowing guys your friends if you can find them".Hopefully the drones, being glowing beings themsleves, he wouldn't turn on them next. Alternatively, we should or shouldn't mention it'll be "your chance to have some fun at the heart again"
>>27830612Also, what do you propose we do with our very precious last few unmolested turns of basic and hero action?
Rolled 90>>27830612The shields in the tunnels and such should be weakened (except around our automatic mining facilities) in a sequence such that there's a route from the tunnels, up into the floor of our tower, at which point we make our Primary-Entrace look like the Primary-Access point into the upper floors of the tower. The route should be such that valuable facilities are not along the road of least resistance.And...I think that's my plan...I hope this makes up for my wrong decision last night.I hope it's alright enough that we might be able to NOT sacrifice a hero just yet. If we do, I wouldn't suggest the Arch Paladin. If we can make it out of this alive then the Arch Paladin+his forces will be the only thing that keeps us alive.
Rolled 18>>27830612Glowy King JoeJoe is well known figure in a few circles.
>>27830725Hmm quite, it took us far too late to realize, he's the only force we have that is actually loyal to the cause, not hellbent on bleeding us of money like a stuck pig.
Rolled 39>>27830706I'm...not sure. Hopefully all of this scheming >>27830612>>27830725is covered under Basic Action 1.So we have 2 more Basic Actions, and access to 2 out of the three Manufacture, Guidance/Research, and Mad Science.By the way, we're probably going to lose Dr. Picli in the middle of all this. I don't know. We might consider talking to her+the colonel, but I have to leave after this post. I'll try to participate on my phone, but it's difficult and I won't be able to make any life-saving plans or anything from there.>>27830754Good guy circles or Bad guy circles or a few of both? That response makes me favor flying GlowyJoe over to the Flying Mobile Base, Waiting Mobile Base, or another Monster Spire. DON'T LET THE MONSTER SPIRES COMPLETE THEIR MEMBRANE.Okay...Good luck, friends.
Rolled 74>>27830612>In the meantime, we release all of our water reserves onto the surface (try and direct it so that they'll hit the lava-lake the Spire-Monster is running towards if possible)>Have our 1 of our Mobile Bases move out with our Mobile Fortress to begin attacking one of the Spire Monsters next to the one that uprooted itself.This is the one I'm most concerned about.As of now, we are not particularly in the attention of anyone, and this could easily change that. Though on a brighter note, whoever is under there might confuse Glowy Joe for Mr. Light and getting it to yell curses at GJ is a good idea.
>>27830822You always leave at the most important times. . .
Alright, so while we at least have an action plan by our best and brightests, I'll try to think of the most usefull uses for our basic actions and heroes. For now.
Rolled 87>>27830833Oh yeah, that reminds me. Glowy Joe and Mr. Light will undoubtedly have some interesting interactions.>>27830833I'm torn, I feel like if we move ALL of our bases away at once then we'll be left completely undefended...but to move them out individually or in small groups will just get them killed. I'm leaning more towards send MORE out with the Mobile Fort than keeping more with us.As for the water...hey, maybe it'll get people fighting to get some. Maybe they'll start taking down Spire Monsters themselves. Make no mistake that WE are the center of attention for the Underground Commander and the Surface Commander (and the Air Commander...who will swoop in once the opportune moment arises). We're not yet the center of attention for the Ghouls, or the Unknown Mobile Bases.
Rolled 78>>27830914On the other hand, if we send out all our Mobile Bases and the Underground Monsters+Surface Monsters JOIN UP when we blow our lower stories...then we're fucked. At least with the bases around we might could stand a chance at thinning the hordes a little bit...fuck, I don't know. >>27830850Sorry...Good luck.
>>27830952>On the other hand, if we send out all our Mobile Bases and the Underground Monsters+Surface Monsters JOIN UP when we blow our lower storiesThat's where I'm hoping the potential death of either one or both the commanders (and that is saying a lot) will prevent such a unity.
Writing up an action
>>27830612>>27830725"Hey No-Mad. We have a mad plan going on. What do you think?"
Rolled 64How many times has EDE said the right option is always simplest. . .god help me I can't see it, but everytime we try our damndest to make a well thought out plan it almost usually backfires (except the one with Didrickson hunting, that was good, and it was in line with one of our NPC's advice).
Rolled 38>>27831121"who says the monster commanders don't work together? Or the watchers will swoop into clean up. Let us tire ourselves out. And just how sneaky is something as big as mobile base even with stealth shields?"
>>27831224"that's what I suspected. Do you have any suggestions on how to properly "tire ourselves out"? Even a single motto or analogy, but hey, for some reason I get your more the type for straight answers than. . .riddles like everyone else seems to love."
Rolled 20>>27831252"When you are exhausted they'll all come down to pick and fight over whats left. Think about it you somehow survive there is all that tech, treasure, and flesh. Plus you would be weakened a most opportune time to attack one that they would not likely get again any time soon."
>>27831307"So what you are saying is, even supposing we hold out the monsters somehow, we'd have the flying forces to pounce when we're out and down. I can see the logic in that, though that is typical of you. But, likewise as our most sane and valuable member so far, what is your take on all of this?"
Rolled 71>>27831353"No friends or connections is your doom. Not establishing yourselves well too, that simple really. Plan is good but you must ask yourselves what will you do after or if it does not go well?"
>>27831416>No friends or connections is your doom.Or rather, no loyalties is our doom. We've tried making friends at every opportunity, but friends may or may not come to your aid when you need it. We have connections, but they too have the similar issue. Perhaps, the issue is ideology. We must find friends with whom we share a common interest in, as we have with the Paladins. Wouldn't you agree?>Not establishing yourselves well too, that simple reallyYes, and that is also an issue, and though we've tried to make ourselves "safe" we've had difficulty figuring out how to properly establish ourselves and we sorely wish someone could advise us on how>Plan is good but you must ask yourselves what will you do after or if it does not go well?A plan that "might not go well" is a good idea, not a good plan per say. But, that said, it's getting to the "after" part that we are most interested right now.Certainly, we will reevaluate our strategies (and especially consult yourself) when we reach that point, it's getting there. And we will have much to discuss on that aspect once we do.
Rolled 28>>27831416We'll do our best or die, I suppose.Also, the Mobile Forts+Bases should go full guns blazing if stealth isn't an option.Oh, and i find it likely that we might have to take out ALL of the spires before the surface monsters cease to be controlled. So maybe the portion of the plan where we blow our lower levels should wait.

Rolled 38>>27831690Still waiting for the other actions.
Rolled 86>>27831855Change what's under "Mad Science" to Basic 3 and what's under Basic 3 to a >Manufacture action so we get to use that sweet roll without fucking stuff up.Also, we should only set up placement/preparation of blowing the lower levels, not actually do it until at least the Spire Monster GlowyJoe is on dies.
>>27831855>>27831971Alright, then modify it with this.>Basic 3Have Dr. Picli make a plea to our demon neighbors for aid. Spires and monsters rising out from the ground is as bad for the underworld as it is for the overworld.>ManufactureAll the required necessities for basic 1
>>27831993Actually he meant the manufacture action is for the P.I.K.L.I devices, basic 1 is for the necessary explosives.

Rolled 98>>27832017It works either way really, so long as negotiations are out of the Mad Science category (which had the ability to make things go tremendously good...but with a roll of 96 i don't want the risk of rerolling and having things go tremendously bad.)>>27832075The only potential problems i see are EDE nitpicking the grammar in the plan-posts, the possible ways the plan can go wrong, and that we might need to manufacture PIKLI rays before we can equip them.On that note, the "Equip Pikli rays" action should have a contingency that we manufacture some if we don't have any to mount.Can we take personal control of the Mobile Fort+Base, the Two Mobile Bases that are staying behind for the moment, the Drone-Swarm, and anything else please?
>>27832075>I asked you guys to analyze
Rolled 45>>27832298Oh, and if we still have the Urgsha on the line or can get them back on the line could we ask them if they've seen a walking pillar of water around? If so and they have the ability, would the please ask it to hurry back? We're in a bit of a tight spot.
>>27832338They would more likely steal him than return him to us.Man. . .sending him out was not the brightest idea.
Rolled 36>>27831855Items have been manufactured.Demons state that they are rather busy at the moment. Big time. Mr. Light has left.Now the fun begins.Glowing Man and Monster took a dip in the lava lake. Shields were sent over and floated around aimlessly. Meanwhile our water reserves are exhausted while they are poured down on the lake. A very pissed monster got trapped in it screeching out...That was when our mobile base and Fort advanced attacking the spires. What happened is we found ourselves under attack as the fliers and surface monsters converged on them in mass. Then we saw burrower monsters rooting around in the solidified lava lake. Which then erupted forth and started spewing lava on our tower and bases. The fliers are descending all along our forces. Then the underground monsters erupted in action roaring from below. Most of them outside targeting the bases while others started burrowing upward to attack our tower from below. We even see our bases once they got soaked in lava(slowing them down and revealing their location) which were then surrounded by cloud of monsters. Lasers flashing and weapons roaring. AlertMonsters have nearly penetrated the tower from below. The explosives slowed them down. AlertThe tower is sealed in a cocoon of cooled lava.AlertOur mobile bases are under attack and nearly overrun. Granted they are taking quite the number of monsters with them. Two of our bases are dueling the underground and surface monster commanders. The other mobile base meanwhile has fallen. Our mobile Fortress is still doing somewhat well.AlertThe membrane is nearly completed as wounded monsters and fliers sacrifice themselves to help it expand. Only a narrow shade of space is left which is being watched by the Flier Monster Commander.AlertA strange growth is covering the ground around our tower.NewsA strange aircraft has penetrated the cocoon and docked at our tower. The individuals inside it is a young girl and her pilot.

>High Energy Plasma Accelerator – A device that uses a series of pulsing electromagnets to send plasma down a magnetized circular tube, increasing its energy to reach incredible velocities. As the plasma approached the speed of light, it reaches a point of transition where any added energy cannot be translated into increased velocity, but instead gains increased mass. The highly energized plasma is then launched from the tube via a separate directed path, and acts as a “solid” projectile traveling at the speed of light. When impacting mass, explosions should be expected to go nuclear, as well as leaving a small nuclear inferno trail through the air.We have over 900 loot to provide, the best energy expertise in the region, and several floors of the tower to devote (should only take three).

Rolled 5>>27833462Ask the Colonel what our true power is?
Rolled 31>>27833715It's the opinion of this board member that such a project isn't feasible due to time constraints, the lack of Mr. Light to boost our development speed and provide a Mad-Science boost without risk, and our energy supplies being just a nuclear reactor+geothermal spike at the moment.
>>27833780Indeed, very much appreciated fellow shareholder.
Rolled 11>>27833740He doesn't know.>>27833715Sure you can pull that off in just a turn?
>>27833796Nope.A turn changes everything.
>>27833462Hmm, got to find a way to follow our heroes advice with one turn. So many resources, so many risks. . .
Rolled 89So actions?
>>27833906Still thinking, trying to base actions on time constraint and risque.
Rolled 41>>27833796What's the status of the monster that GlowyJoe was riding?
A more simple, moderate idea.Ionic Plasma Stream – Construction of simple ionic plasma stream on the roof, based on existing basic plasma tech.Alone it is little more than a regular plasma stream, that you would commonly find in most tech armies, and could easily be deflected. The difference here is it is ionically chargedAs you know, some vehicles are equipped with energy dampeners and electrical sinks, rendering our massive Tesla Tower less than effective. Bar trying to bypass them via physical means, you could simply increase the strength of the Tesla Device to overpower them. However, this is impractical even by our energy industrial might. Instead, a simple Ionic Plasma stream can be used as a targeting device to direct the *entire energy output of the tesla coil and our generators onto a single focused target, completely frying it and overwhelming the synchs of whatever happens to be in its path.In addition it will have the usual effects that would be expected of a medium sized plasma stream, but with the weight of the great Tesla Tower behind it.
Rolled 85>>27833943Got dug out by some other monsters.
>>27833949We should have a few plasma cannons lying about here and there, just upgrade them to be ionically charged and grounded to the tower.
Rolled 91>>27833949>>27834014That still requires research and/or manufacture. We need to do something with supplies we already have, and it needs to be big. I also don't think we have plasma cannons, or that that'd be enough.And all that aside, we're encased in a cover of lavarock.
>>27834083Yes, the issue is balancing big with feasible and can be done in a single turn. Do you have any ideas?
Rolled 18>>27834120We have the P.I.K.L.I. tech already. Make a BIG one on the roof?Or we could construct some reactors outside and blow them up when the lava barrier falls. Radiation heals us, it might call the ghouls, and...idk just tossing out ideas.
Rolled 74>>27834120Trying to think of some, give me a minute.I don't suppose we have any indication that these monsters are susceptible to radiation poisoning?
Rolled 100>>27834163Not really considering their doing fine despite the dirty bomb artillery from a while back. It appears that they have the ability to neutralize it.
>>27834187Dice gods be praised
Rolled 76>>27833977Could we get any more information on the growth that happening on the ground near our tower?Or about how well our Mobile Fortress is doing? Is it currently assisting the 2 Mobile Bases against the Monster Commander? Do we know where GlowyJoe is? Can we signal the drones to redirect and protect the mobile bases?
Rolled 21>>27834187Heh, just when we needed it most.
>>27834187Well, maybe Crom DOES like Valor...
Rolled 75>>27834187>>27834187Not again fuck.In any case I am going to put a time limit for coming up with a plan this shit is taking way to long even by my standards. allsoCHOOSE oneArch PaladinShadow ExtinSoldier AxtonGhoul RombaZombie ilshie
>>27834236Arch PaladinCan the time limit start after your writefaggotry?
>>27834236Can we just use that 100 for one of our plans?Would've done wonders for that particle accelerator or tesla targeter.
>>27834253Yes, is this possible? It would be nice to see other faction's faces when we get covered in lava and there's no gun, then we get uncovered and there's a massive fucking gun that snipes the Surface Monster Commander, then underground monsters begin pouring out of the base of our tower, then the massive fucking gun snipes the shit out of the Sky Base and then proceeds to murderfuck the rest of the Spire Monsters.
Rolled 64>>27834253Only player rolls go to player actions. My own rolls go to the npc, enemy, and the world.>>27834249Nope. Just make sure you have a plan/actions mapped out however crudely out otherwise I get to have some fun.
>Basic 1Arm all our mercs and men who can bear arms with our best technology>Basic 2Repair, upgrade, or otherwise bolster our lower tower defenses where we still can>Basic 3Do whatever we can to boost our water replenishing rate>ManufactureThe parts needed for Mad Science - No-Mad in command>MAD SCIENCEConstruct a great P.I.K.L.I device on the roof.

Rolled 93>>27834236Arch Paladin
Rolled 11>>27834290We have no Mercs aside from a precious few Military Borgs and Super Soldiers, but they're not following our orders.It's too late for repairing/upgrading our lower tower defensesBoosting our water replenishing rate is something to be done AFTER we get through this crisisThe mad science/manufacture is just too much to do in one turn...
>>27834345I know, I know, we just need a crude barely passable plan right now so please help me think of one.
Rolled 93>>27834290Roll for mad science at least, but I really want a different plan than this. . .
>>27834470Not bad of a roll
Rolled 30>>27834345Ask Rizal if she has any way to help us, please?Tell the Mobile Fortress to assist the Mobile Base and take the Surface Monster Commander down.After the Surface Monster Commander has been taken down, blow the lower levels and open up that pathway through our base to the surface. Apply explosives or use our laser defenses on the lava shell around us so that a hole is blasted there too so they can stream out.Equip our people that will be guarding the routes that monsters from the lower levels might break through with our SPECIAL Mark Arms and GUARDIAN Series Armor. Aside from that...I don't know. I'm reaching my wits' end. If I hadn't had to leave all day (and have to leave now) I might've been able to come up with something but...Activate Heroic Sacrifice:Overseer No-Mad, or Dr. Picli or (as a last resort) Aquam Vitae. Mr. Light and the Arch-Paladin are off limits.>Basic 1Boost our Tesla Coil atop our tower>Basic 2Boost our Tesla Coil atop our tower[Overseer No-Mad]>Basic 3Build the Tesla-Targeter from Mad-Science>ManufactureBuild the Tesla-Targeter from Mad-Science>Mad ScienceDevelop a weapon that will condense all the energy from one of our Tesla coils into one pathway, and amplify it+extend the range its effects can go. If successfully developed it is to be put atop the tower.
>>27834506Better roll for mad science, I ain't testing my luck.
Rolled 43>>27834506Mad Science roll
hello again everybody R&D fag here with new insight1st of all we have a special unit (shield bot) just sitting here that we never even bothered to dust off since we got out of the vault. i would like to put in a request to the Adreo records dept. for any and all specs we have on those.2nd more gadgets! first idea is a laser flash bang grenade, except remove the bang and instead of a flash we just have that sucker burn for at least a minute. imagine: toss one of those in a room and all thats left of whoever was in there is their shadow burnt into the wall, but that only covers the poor bastards without shields but i can guarantee that they will either 1 be running out of their in a damn hurry (see easy pickings) or 2 their shields worn down and probably blind (see easy pickings) continued
>>27834665We're sort've dealing with basic survival here friend, but ideas are good. Why not paste bin them?Also sounds awfully familiar to the flash burn grenade concept http://pastebin.com/wGavpxyb
Rolled 78>>27834506Well looks like this is civ end after all very well then I will start a new civ after thisYou guys did good though I didn't think you would last this long.
>>27834747Not even that 100 or Rizal could've saved us. Grrr. . .Looks like this is yet another in Mr. Light's long attempts to bring light back into the world undone. never even got this remnant to hivemind stage. . .
>>278346653rd the "Disco Bomb" basicly the same concept as the laser flashbang but larger (and possibly guided) the main difference is that instead of a wide angle laser blast this will have dozens of small focused laser beams going off in every direction at once (possibly add a FoF sensor for our own troops safety) i was thinking that this could be used as a last ditch weapon to be deployed by an overwhelmed shield bot.4th taking vague requests. give me a general direction to let me know what we want done
Rolled 88>>27834747Goddamit we fought so damned HARD.You know what? Fuck, we're going to choose an island fucking paradise for the next civ
>>27834701oh really? i just showed up and havent read through the thread yet just wanted to get my ideas out there before they dissapear into the depths of my mind
Rolled 53>>27834747Even if we engage heroic sacrifice? Also, will you start tonight?
Rolled 50>>27834747We tried breaking through the hardened magma upstairs to access the Tesla Coil.We broke through but it turned to be broken.Tesla Coil repaired.Telsa Coil targeter constructed.Mad Science research commencing we got the idea of how to do it down...but we ran out of time before we could test it out.TESLA COIL UNLEASHED powered up by both Dr. Picli and No-Mad. We started zapping monsters left and right but they started dive bombing us...to bad they couldn't make it alive sadly they could if they didn't plan to survive. As it turns out their bodies can contained some very nasty innards which began to eat away at our equipment and even ourselves.Our mobile bases meanwhile started teaming up the Surface Monster Commander who we manage to vaporize. Sadly the Underground Monster commander took out another one our mobile bases and started working on the last one before the Fort. The Fort meanwhile was kept busy with a buzzing swarm of monsters from above and below constantly going after it.That was when they started pouring in from our tower underground. We were able to keep the surface and even air monsters occupied. Sadly but not those. Our troops in the best equipment we had to offer desperately tried to hold the line in the lower levels, but sheer weight of numbers and the fact that they were more then happy to make their pathways made it so our forces soon fell. >>27834808to be fair if monsters didn't kill you the bastards lying in wait will. That is why I suggested something to finish off the monsters and to scare the vultures off. >>27834850Do you wish to activate Heroic Sacrifice if so who?
>>27834820Yeah, we clawed so hard to keep this one going.Hmph, well at least we succeed in our attempt to try and not be impractical evil this time.I imagine Mr. Light will take the GL and retreat and wait for his next opportunity to try and find Mentis Industria and bring back his beloved Cassiel again. False gods are still sacrificing Saal on the altars. This is just another in a long list of attempts.Another time a spark was lit, and the darkness snuffed it out.
Rolled 26>>27834908The Membrane has been completed and noxious gasses and growths have begun to overtake everything contained within.Flying Monster Commander has descended to attack our last Mobile Base.>>27834944Pretty much.
Rolled 28>>27834820>>27834820Well it depends on rolls for dangers but that sounds attractive to me too.
>>27834908>>27834956Welp better make the best of it.Start telecoming our latest designs to all our other remnants (bar the Saal).Overcharge the reactors.If this candle is going to burn out, let it go in a flash.Also, I'd like to see that story on the Paladin and how No-Mad managed to safely get back into the Digga Nigga and be launched by an explosion yet again
>>27834987Can you post that pastebin on V101?Got transition my mindset from Energy Corp to Think tank, like I did from Mutant to Energy Corp
Rolled 38>>27835036How we gonna do this one?We did evil. We tried good.Isolationist?
>>27835071We're scientists this time.That means we go MAD
Rolled 64>>27834956>>27834908That was when our heroes took action.Aduro HQ the Mobile Fortress retreated and loaded up the civilians while the last mobile base held of the tides of enemies.Meanwhile the surviving force of Super Soldiers and Borgs freshly loaded up charged forth breaking through the tower and horde of monsters fighting their way through...it is worth noting that some of them carried a wriggling package between them tied by some strange devices. Once the Mobile Fortress was loaded up and departed self destruct sequence was activated. No-Mad was last seen climbing into his freshly repaired ride RIGHT before the tower detonated. He craft was seen streaking in the sky to end up who knows where.Meanwhile in certain volcano...Paladin.Yes me and mine will hold them off while you take on the beast.Why would you make this sacrifice merc?...Once upon a time we soldiers with a cause I guess it just that I would like to go down fighting the good fight instead in the name of gain....I see farewell then.Good luck Archie, stated the borg leader as he headed towards the chokepoint to hold of the monsters as long as he could.Meanwhile in some magma veins some very confused demons stared as a glowing human figure zipped by screaming obscenities.
Rolled 67>>27835036I will, but i need access to my computer. Which i should have in an hour or at most, two.
Rolled 18, 45, 7, 98, 99 = 267>>27835115The arch paladin and his surviving forces charged forth into that one last den. His forces fought the things and he personally charged up to kill the leader the commander in chief personally. The fight was hard long but he won smiting it down andits corpse fell down into the boiling couldron of magma below...unfortunately he was tied to it and got dragged down with it. Meanwhile in a certain tunnel a MK Ninja was tracking his prey despite being quite wounded when a glowing figure dropped on top of him screeching obsceneties...but he realized he knew what it was actually saying and responded.That day GlowyJoe met someone who knew what he was trying to say...and then promptly looted a new friend. The paladins meanwhile climbed up and out of the volcano. Their leader somehow alive and well saw what was happening to those who too believed being the light an example surrounded too by darkness. They charged down and forward not noticing a strange craft flying above their heads.
Rolled 96, 81, 52, 46, 49 = 324>>27835213Don't forget to archive or vote for that matter. Will start a new civ thread soon.
