Last Time on Digger Quest!: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29948682/Check my twitter for Quest Schedules and Updates: https://twitter.com/Crosswire Updated Rules: http://pastebin.com/19xWixbQ Bass Treble Character Sheet v.3: http://pastebin.com/2Ja9DBCsIra Claire Character Sheet: http://pastebin.com/bLUpYWWSCruiser Character Sheet: http://pastebin.com/Reis6zBQWith its large piercing red eye, the drumming of its legs, and the loud grinding and gnashing of its ancient mechanical innards you can easily sense the Hanmuru Doll’s presence in the darkness of the room. Even if you were robbed of your headlamp and left in the pitch blackness, the sickening stench of mold, blood, and rusted metal would inform you of the Reaverbot’s whereabouts.You don’t even have to make a conscious effort to recognize what you’re up against. Anyone who’s listened to an adventurous radio program, heard the tales of an old Digger, or paid attention to frightening rumors passed around a bar would know what a Hanmuru Doll was. With caterpillar legs, massive crushing arms, and an almost berserker approach to killing, the Hanmuru Doll was infamous for its power and capacity for killing. Not only was it known for wiping out entire teams of experienced diggers, but during the Week of Ruin it pounded roads, towns, and entire cities into piles of broken stone and blood.This infamous killing machine stands between you and a chest containing the last key needed to open a door in this ruin that is surely protecting something VERY important. However grabbing and going isn’t an option as large reinforced plates now cover the exits to this large, almost arenas like room.(Continued)
>>29972934Locking eyes with this avatar of destruction you realize the only way you’re getting out of this alive is by fighting with everything you have. As you raise your Bustergun and the Hanmuru Doll charges at you from the other side of the room, your breath nearly catches in your throat as a wave of fear pulsates through your body.>(Roll a Bravery check. 1d20+2 to resist the effects of the terrifying presence)
Rolled 9 + 2>>29972968AGGGHHH!!!
Rolled 20 + 2>>29972968Rolling.
>>29973027That didn't take long.
>>29972968You WILL BE BROKEN BY THE 20's!!!!
Bass is a cool dude who doesn't afraid of anything
>>29973027WE ARE THE STRONGEST
>>29973027>20+2 =22>Critical Success!Adrenaline spirals through your veins and your heart begins to hammer in your chest as the Hanmuru Doll charges at you, its long arms outstretched and its fat metal digits snapping together like the hands of a giant child trying to grab a bug off the floor. Despite your body and your foe doing everything possible to disorient you with fear you stay calm and keep focus, rolling suddenly to the side as the Hanmuru Doll’s hands smash down into the part of the floor you had been standing on moments before.You need to decide a plan of action on how to combat this Reaverbot. It’s large, fast, and strong enough to crush a man with relative ease if that corpse you found earlier was anything to indicate. However everything and everyone has weaknesses, and surely the Hanmuru Doll is no acceptation. This room is large and you have tons of room to run and maneuver. There are no obstacles of any kind in the room and it’s mostly empty save for the chest at the back of the room.It’s not a lot to work with, but it’s better than a small walkway surrounded by water. You have your Bustergun and what you have in your bag to work with.What is your course of action Bass?
>>29973397ITS TIMEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ParUJ9Ll7dkGET ON THE HANMURU'S BACK
>>29973397Strafe and fire?
>>29973467God, if only we had the energy sword for this
>>29973478Armours too thick.>>29973397Try to look for weaknesses or places where there are no armour and shoot there.
>>29973610most likely the back of the head or the spot where the arms connect to the body
>>29973635Same for me, also just remembered we have a giant enemy that charges at us and iron walls.
HEY CROSSWIRE.YOU FORGOT A FEAT ON GETTING CRUISER CAR TO BE A BOAT WITH MACHINE GUNS.
>>29973397Launch a flare in its face. Then circle around it while it's blinded. Then either shoot it in the joints or get out our pickaxe and start prying up armor.
>>29973702>Ridiculous Proposition: For some reason you have this odd tendency to make really dumb or unusual ideas seem very plasuble and appealing. Once a session when trying to propose an idea that is seen as ridiculous or foolish to another character, roll 1d20. If the number is odd even you will receive a +10 bonus to all charisma checks regarding that idea for the rest of the day. Hey Crosswire, you forgot to put this on the Stat Sheet of Bass. You also forgot to put a title next to cruiser level.
>>29973763This or this>>29973689What ever happens first.
>>29973397Flare to the face. Then try to climb on its back. Maybe use some rope to tie yourself to it.Do we have a grappling hook? We could try that trick from the Empire Strikes Back where they tied the AT-AT walker's legs together.Also, try to speak with it. At least yell something in the Old Tongue, maybe it'll confuse it.
>>29973859I'm not sure tripping it up will work. It's got plenty of strength to break free from the rope. Also, even if it doesn't, it already walks with short shuffling steps, it won't see that much of a loss of mobility.
>>29973859>Maybe use some rope to tie yourself to it.God no that is suicide >Do we have a grappling hook?Nope>We could try that trick from the Empire Strikes Back where they tied the AT-AT walker's legs together.His legs are too fat for that and could break the rope.>Also, try to speak with it. At least yell something in the Old Tongue, maybe it'll confuseI doubt speaking to it will help.
>>29973397Start circling around it and do probing shots to determine which part of its body is vulnerable
>>29973939So, we need to blow its eye out or something?
>>29973981Maybe, i was thinking of blinding it and making it charge towards the walls to stun it, and taking as many pot shots as possible.
>>29974003That'd probably work.I don't think it can swim either, so maybe we can lure it to fall into a nearby pool or something.
>>29973981No, don't do that. Intact Hanmaru eyes are a Grade 1 national treasure! According to the curator of a dinky little museum on Kattleox island, who knows if she's right. Still, probably worth something.
>>29973702>>29973781(Right, I'll edit that in later)>>29973610>>29973635You can't spy an obvious weaknesses from a glance, the Hanmuru looks incredibly solid even with all the moss growing over it and the discoloration of it's armor. There isn't any gaps or spaces in the armor, even near the joints.Still, you could probably try grabbing and climbing onto it's back despite not really being much of a climber. You'd only have one arm to work with since the Bustergun takes up your right arm, but the Hanmuru Doll shouldn't be able to grab you if you position yourself carefully.>>29973859>>29973763You could easily fire off a flare at it, but you don't know if it'll blind it or not. So far Reaverbots have been really odd in how well they can or cannot detect you. Tri-Anglers relied entirely on sight while Firushudot's seemed to sense your presence when you entered the room. For all you know the Hanmuru Doll could have other means of detecting you...What do you wish to do Bass?>[A] Circle around and try to climb on it's back>[B] Try to use a flare to blind it>[C] Try Circling around and strafing it>[D] Other
>>29974103Flare, then climb.
>>29974103>[A] Circle around and try to climb on it's back
>>29974103> [B] Try to use a flare to blind it> [C] Try Circling around and strafing it
>>29974038Why not shoot the back of the head?We do massive damage while preserving the eye.
>>29974103>>[A] Circle around and try to climb on it's back
>>29974103>[A] Circle around and try to climb on it's back>[B] Try to use a flare to blind it
Also chime in to our friends on top on how shit just got real
>>29974103Use the flare, circle around and then climb it. Also, start charging that buster, we're gonna need that 2d8 of damages if its armor is that thick.
>>29974217>>29974192>>29974129>>29974280>>29974210“Guys, I’m fighting a Hanmuru Doll!” You yell over the Walkie-Talkie as you yank out the flaregun from your bag, hastily loading a shell into it before firing it at Hanmuru as it charges again. The flare almost blinds you as it shoots from the gun and flies into the Hanmuru’s face, deflecting off and landing in a corner of the room, greatly improving the lighting of the room."A what?" Ira asks as the Hanmuru Doll continues it's charge unphased. "Something REALLY bad!"Stuffing the Flaregun into your jacket pocket you try to run around the Hanmuru Doll in the hopes the flare affected its vision…(Roll 1d20 vs Hanmuru Doll’s roll)
Rolled 15>>29974419(Forgot my roll)
>>29974439welp, looks like im putting the dice down today>>29974453thank god youre late
>>29974453Thank god this is late, i sear this is the 4 or 5th time it has happened.
Rolled 6>>29974453Thank you for being late!
>>29974453And Bass dodges yet another 1. Truly, the dice gods love him like no other.
>>29974453Oh thank god you're late.
>>29974470rekt fgt, lrn 3 git gud m80
>>29974480No it means they hate his luck, but it has made a deal with the devil.
>>29974449>18 vs 15>Bass Succeeds!The Hanmuru Doll lashes out at you with it's arms, clearly unaffected by the flare. However a few well timed ducks and a mad sprint allows you escape it's reach and get around to it's backside just as it halts it's charge. Jumping up you grab onto a groove in the Reaverbot's armored back and hold on as best you can with your free arm, raising your Bustergun to fire on the Hanmuru Doll.Where do you want to Target?>[A] The back of the head>[B] The back itself>[C] Other (write in)
>>29974597>[A] The back of the head
>>29974597>>[A] The back of the head
>>29974597> [A] The back of the headThis is going to hurt.
>>29974597If there's an articulation that join the head and neck, fire here. Otherwise, the back of the head.
>>29974597>[A] The back of the headjust woke up, and already it's time to get my blood pumpin.
>>29974651>>29974637>>29974620>>29974613>>29974651Raising your Bustergun upwards you fire a regular shot into the back of the Hanmuru Doll’s seemingly fixed head. You can feel the heat from the energy blast and here the audible crackling as it whacks into the back of the Reaverbot’s armored chassis. However you see the damage was menial and even at point blank your attack only left a faint mark in the armor.Still, it left a mark and with enough repetition you should be able to break through. Before you can fire off another shot the Hanmuru Doll comes to realize where you are and begins to run around, flailing its arms and trying to claw you off its back. Thankfully even with its metal digits and long reach; it’s not able to reach you as its arms weren't designed to scratch its back.The thrashing however is making holding on pretty difficult and with one hand it’s only a matter of time before you fall off. Still, you can get a couple shots in till then, what do you wish to do?>[A] More is better! Keep firing regular shots into the back of its head!>[B] Quality over quantity! Fire charged shots into the back of its head>[C] Other (Write in)

Rolled 1>>29974913>>29974940>>29974952>>29974959>>29974986AHHH, THE APOCALYPSE COMES!
>>29974986Its armor is pretty thick, also i think after we are thrown off, we should god it into charging towards a wall to get stunned so that we can clmib on its back again.
>>29975005Thank God that 1 doesn't count.
>>29975013typical brute boss mechanics in my quest?i can dig it
>>29974897>[B] Quality over quantity! Fire charged shots into the back of its headwait, how long does it take to charge? Was it 30 seconds?
Rolled 17>>29974913>>29974940>>29974952>>29974959>>29974986Charging up your Bustergun you fire empowered shots into the back of the Hanmuru Doll’s head, turning the barely noticeable mark you made with your first shot into a large, blackened, and visible dent. You’re only able to get several shots off before you lose your grip and fall off, but the progress you made is pretty significant.The Hanmuru Doll continues thrashing around the room and by the time you get to your feet it realizes you’ve fallen off. Quickly orienting itself it rushes at you, its cycloptic eye glowing with rage as it shakes the entire room with a thunderous, titanic charge towards you. The already audible shuffling of its tiny legs turn into ear splitting smashing, it’s feet cracking the floor as it carries it’s body at ramming speeds, arms outreached and ready to grab and crush you.Gritting your teeth you try and evade…>(Roll 1d20 vs Hanmuru Doll’s Roll)
We need to improve our agility, our dodging sucks.>>29975325Damn, too late. Still, we won the roll with >>29975320
>>29975325awwwwwwe still beat it though
Rolled 14>>29975320>18 vs 17>Bass Succeeds! Leaping to the side the berserking Hanmuru Doll charges past you and collides with the nearby wall, barreling into it with the force of a train, cracking the wall and knocking itself backward several feet. The Hanmuru Doll stands, it's body jerking and sputtering violently, arms flailing spastically as its mechanical insides seize and choke from the collision, leaving it struggling to move. Quickly! What do you wish to do Bass?>[A] Climb back on and fire more charges shots at the back of its head!>[B] Grab the key while it’s stunned! >[C] Other (Write in)
Rolled 18>>29975520>[A] Climb back on and fire more charges shots at the back of its head!we gonna take this bitch down
>>29975520> [A] Climb back on and fire more charges shots at the back of its head!Then move away, dodge, and let him hit the wall once again.
>>29975520>[A] Climb back on and fire more charges shots at the back of its head!One of these chased Megaman all the way to the exit of the ruin he was in, I don't want it rampaging through the tower trying to get at us. Take it down while we can.
Rolled 12>>29975520>>[A] Climb back on and fire more charges shots at the back of its head!

Rolled 15>>29975546>>29975547>>29975553>>29975579>>29975616>>29975637Eager to land more blows you rush over to the Hanmuru Doll and circle around it, leaping and grasping onto the groove in its back once again. Raising your Bustergun you charge and fire shots as fast as you can, pounding the same spot, over and over again in the hopes of breaking through. After several more shots and increasing the severity of the damaged spot, the Hanmuru Doll begins to move again, only this time it’s heading backwards.Its speed rapidly increases and soon it’s charging backwards at the other wall, with you in the perfect spot to get sandwiched and crushed between the two. If you don’t jump off now you could be in a lot of hurt, however armor at the back of the Hanmuru Doll’s head looks awful, one more shot could very well kill it!You can’t do both and you don’t have a lot of time to decide.>[A] Take the risk and fire the shot ! FINISH HIM!>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!>[C] Other
>>29975823ITS LEARNING>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!
>>29975823>[A] Take the risk and fire the shot ! FINISH HIM!
Rolled 4>>29975823>>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!This will stun him, but wait till the last minute.
>>29975823Other>scream from the deepest heart of rage and anger in our soul and FINISH HIM.
>>29975823>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!Not worth the risk. Jump off. We can always circle strafe for the last shot.
>>29975823> [B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!
>>29975823>>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!discretion is a better part of the valor, and it'd probably stun itself from bashing the wall
Rolled 3, 15 = 18>>29975855>>29975874>>29975897>>29975902>>29975959Not being all that interested in knowing what it’s like to die, you throw yourself off the Hanmuru Doll moments before it collides into the back wall. You hit the ground hard, but go into a roll and manage to avoid breaking anything. Getting to your feet you turn and see the Hanmuru Doll ripping itself out of the wall, unphased by a collision that had previously stunned it. Smoke now billows out of its grate like mouth like the hot, furious breath of a gladiator after a tremendous attack. Orienting itself to face you, it holds out its arms and points them at you, firing them off like massive hand tipped rockets!You barely have time to hear the attack and desperately attempt to dodge it…(Roll 1d20 vs Hanmuru Doll’s rolls)
>>29975823>>[B] You hate bass sandwiches! You sure as hell aren’t going to be one! JUMP OFF!If it impact the wall, then it will just stun itself again. Maybe even finish that hole we've started digging in its head.
Rolled 14>>29976106Oh fuck.
Rolled 9>>29976106Well at least we dodged both of them.
>>29976141Your doing gods work
Rolled 11>>29976141YES !
>>29976106A-hah! Foolish Reaverbot Now we have the upper hand! You didn't plan this out at all, didn't you know that being forewarned is being forearmed? Hand pun!
Rolled 3>>29976196So now that it is arm less its the best time to get back on its back and finish it off.
>>29976250Pretty sure the arm just retract back afterward.
Rolled 1, 12 = 13>>29976141>18 vs 3 & 15>Success!With little time to act you throw yourself to the ground and throw your hands over your head, the rocket arms blazing past and smashing into the wall on the far side of the room before detonating in a loud and ear-ringing explosion.Looking up you see the smoking and armless Hanmuru Doll charging at you, this time aiming to try and trample you! You’re on the floor and will had difficulty pulling it off, but if you can get behind it and fire a shot into the back of its head it’ll be finished! Or you could try staring it down and destroying it with a single mighty attack…What do you wish to do?>[A] Try to roll out of the way and shoot the back of the Hanmuru’s head as it rushes by!>[B] Use Goring Shot and obliterate it! (Please note the effects of this attack when choosing this)>[C] Other (Write in)

>>29976353>>[A] Try to roll out of the way and shoot the back of the Hanmuru’s head as it rushes by!We should call our friends for help on dragging this body.
Rolled 14>>29976393>>29976386>>29976377As the Hanmuru Doll thunders forward in a desperate charge you lay on the floor, bracing yourself to roll at the right moment so it can't change course and run you over at the last second...(Roll 1d20 vs Hanmuru Roll)
>>29976353[A] Try to roll out of the way and shoot the back of the Hanmuru’s head as it rushes by!>Railroads RcketscNo, capcha, I'm pretty sure the rails blew up long ago, probably after the 4th or 5th crit20 in a row.
Rolled 11>>29976460We're doin' it!
>>29976456>>29976460Can we drag this bastards body towards the elevator?Also is there a way to bait the turtles into the larger rooms?
>>29976567couldn't you just lift those turtle and toss it at each other? that's the easiest way to kill them in the gamewell, easiest without the use of shining laser anyway
>>29976644I figured by then we would have gotten bitten, the only other option is to kite the fuckers with charged shots aimed at their faces.Also here is hoping we can find a way to bring that bastards pieces towards the elevators.
>>29976687Me too. Hopefully we could make something to deal with those turtle things as well.Did we explore the entire level? I think we have a room or two left, as well as two turtles and two of those things we dragged out alive.
>>29976743there might be a room after the boss room(maybe mini boss?), but everything is mostly explored.
>>29976743im thinking of making zakoban grenades. we just need to disable one and tinkering with it untill it tells us its secrets
>>29976775Except for the vault.
Rolled 1>>29976480>17 vs 14>BASS SUCCEEDS!The monstrous, massive, avatar of destruction and death runs at you with the intent of staining the floor with your blood and claiming victory after a long and tumultuous battle. Its cycloptic red eye glows brighter than it had the entire battle, with smoke pouring out of its mouth like evil laughter given physical substance. For a few moments even you thought it was all going to be over and that your adventure was going to end before it could really begin.But then you rolled.Putting all your strength and speed into it, you rolled like a small dog in a tumble dryer and spun right out of the Hanmuru Doll’s path, not giving it any room to change course or adjust its charge. As soon as it had passed and before it could realize it’s horrible mistake, you stopped your roll, threw up your Bustergun and fired, sending a charge shot straight into the back of its heavily damaged head.The armor gave way and the shot pierced the armor you had been blasting away at for what seemed like an eternity, destroying vital and important systems and murdered whatever intelligence and capacity for thought the Reaverbot possessed.With its processing systems gone and it’s body now in flames, the braindead Hanmuru Doll continued its charge until it collided with the wall and exploded, throwing bits of wall, shrapnel, and refractor shards across the room. As the smoke clears and you get to your feet, you see the charred lower half of the Hanmuru Doll lying in a pile of rubble next to a brand new hole in the wall leading out into the adjacent northern hallway.(Continued)
>>29976803also why didnt we take the diving gear?we could use that
>>29976644Take note that Megaman was fully kited with what could be power armor and definitely had arm protection. It's not nearly as safe for Bass to try the same thing without risking his arms getting bitten off.
Rolled 5>>29976883No, it was old and broke.
>>29976883We took the tank. But the helmet had a decaying skull in it for several years, we didn't feel comfortable wearing it.
>>29976883eew, someone died in that. Actually, someone died AND FULLY DECOMPOSED in that.>>29976567We should just take Cruiser down to inspect it after clearing out everything except the boss room.
>>29976875so can we get a map?
Well I'll be damned you guys did it. This is better than any play through I did with Volnutt.>>29976883Weren't we gonna pick all that up on the way out?
>>29976894Yeah. Moreover, Megaman was probably already lvl10 comparatively right at the start of the first game and equipped with really broken skills, like Lock On and Strafe.
>>29976939Nothing a good scrubbing refinishing and repainting an do
>>29976894Also, Megaman has replaceable limbs. He's a cyborg, getting his hand bitten off isn't that big an issue for him. Presumably we could get cyberlimbs to replace any lost ones, provided we didn't bleed to death on the way back home. But they'd be expensive and uncomfortable and it's really not worth it.
>>29976996Debatable on us being humans.
>>29976894i was under the impression that everyone in the legends-verse is somewhat cybernetic entity, what's with the ubiquity of robotic limbs and everything, not to mention "the master" was supposedly the last true human, and the carbons are some sort of reploid-esque not!human
>>29976996Aren't EVERYONE cyborg in Legend ? You know, since everyone is a Carbon and everything.
>>29976996damn i thought his arms looked funnyMegaman had a hard life before the start of the games it seems
Rolled 7>>29977015We just took on single handedly reaver strong enough to kill groups of far more experienced diggers.We ain't human.
>>29977035Well, he did already have several years of experience as a Digger even before the first game.
>>29977024>>29977031Yes and no. They're all artificial life forms. But they clearly have organs and disease and other biological traits. Presumably the cybernetics are integrated at the cellular level. Some, however, go farther and get macro-scale cybernetic enhancements.
>>29976981it would be cheaper to get a new one than to disinfect and repaint a diving suit that far gone.
>>29977080Well, if anything, his forearms are completely artificial since he, y'know, swap them out for weapons when he goes on the field.
>>29977096Oh, totally im just saying its possibleand theres always the chance there isnt any diving gear on the islandyou never know
>>29977126There clearly is diving gear available. Remember the crew of wreck divers we beat up? They have to get their equipment from somewhere.
>>29977126can you please repeat what you just said again in your head and find out why that is plain silly, especially after meeting the douchbag.
>>29977148Shit.I forgotinb4 they own the diving gear shop and are total dicks
>>29977148We could ask in that shop. We'll need to resupply sooner or later.
>>29977148Not really beat up more so thoroughly embarrassed then proceeded to do their job better while ride off as pic related
>>29977223I'm still happy my suggestion to flip them the double bird while we rode off won.
>>29977223>Diver douches diving for stuff near the islands>find a chest>pull it up onto the boat>It sprouts legs and eats their faces
>>29977223Don't forget that we didn't proper equipment or a boat, all we used was a car, and fucking rope.
>>29977223No, we beat them up first. We didn't like Hunter's imprecations against Ira's honor. And Bass is a man of ACTION!, so he responded with punching.
>>29977275Fuck, I hope we didn't attract any amphibious reaverbots with our little adventure here.
>>29977277>>29977256>>29977223That was the day crosswire lost hope in the dice gods.
>>29977275Oh shit, that would be hilarious.
>>29977275>Diver has to call for closest Digger>Bass comes, uses Diver as bait to finish off mimic.>Just as Diver is about to suck it up and say thanks, Bass says:"Oh, thanks for finding it for me, I was looking for that one."
>>29977365>Bass's face when
>>29977280Hmm I thought it was a Kung-fu knee to the balls maybe both but yea we embarrassed him all the same
>>29977365this would be great, and at the same time we are digging through getting nice shit.
>>29977365I'm hoping we have the biggest shit eating grin the whole time to.
>>29977365I can see this being a often occurring theme, where every time he moves away and gets in danger its because of us.
>>29977484nah, I think a mimic incident would be more than enough "justice" done to him. If we ever see him again, we should test him again to see if he's still an asshole before screwing with his life.
(Damn it! Didn't send when I left for Dinner)>>29976883(The Diving gear was old, ruined, and smelled like corpse ass. You got a busted machinegun and a ruptured air tank out of it though)>>29976803 “Bass? BASS! Are you alright? What the hell happened! We heard something from all the way up here!”“Oh it was nothing; I only killed a Reaverbot that’s known for wiping out entire towns and cities! WHO’S THE STRONGEST DIGGER? I. AM!” You throw your arms up and let out an ecstatic shout of victory, dancing a little jig over the smoking remains of the Hanmuru Doll before collecting the loot and the key, promising to tell Ira the story of your victory once you see what’s behind that locked door.You manage to collect about 10,000 Zenny worth of refractor shards and you get the key out of the chest without any issues. There’s nothing salvageable from the Hanmuru Doll, so all that’s left to do is open that door and reap the reward of whatever is behind it!What do you wish to do Bass?
>>29977584Check out that little dark square in the lower part of the roomMight be a seekrit
>>29977584Lets go check out whatever's behind that locked door.
>>29977584Ask cruiser to come down real quick and see if there is anything salvageable, then kite the fucking turtles with charged shots aimed at their faces.
>>29977584I vote we go drop off loot before looking for the last key.>rgainKL altarsHmm tell me more about these altars
Rolled 1>>29977584Lets head toward that locked gate
>>29977646We have all the keys friend
>>29977584I feel as though we missed a couple of rooms.Check that grey rectangle in the same room.Check the room between the mimic room and the purifier room.Go through the other door of the dead diver room(what's up with that corridor?). Basically, I don't remember entering that room there.
>>29977659DOES NOT COUNT! NO ROLLS WERE ASKED FOR!
>>29977624I think that's where the reaverbot crashed into the wall.>>29977629If we do get Cruiser down here, we better escort him.
>>29977646Yeah, that sounds good. We have all the keys, but no need to get cocky. That's clearly a plot door. Drop off the loot before we finish the dungeon.
>>29977584I just want the turtles dead before we go through the last door.
>>29977677Either way theres a big block of ball with three hallways leading to itThere HAS to be a room there
Rolled 14>>29977696>I just want the turtles dead before we go through the last door.We are not properly equipped to deal with those turtles.
>>29976803>>29977584I think you accidentally showed us a secret room there Crosswire.
>>29977709Just like the boss we fought, i think we can take them on if we kite them and shoot them in the face with charged shots..
>>29977712Wait a secondPFFFFFFFT AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAH
>>29977748>>29977745>>29977712That explains why I had the weird feeling that the map had more rooms than we entered.
>>29977624(That's actually just me trying to fix the part of the map I accidentally erased)>>29977712(No, that's a room I kind originally erased because I didn't plan anything for it, but forgot to save the map when I did it. It's not there on the actual map.)
>>29977781Too bad. I was hoping it was one of those bomb or drill walls and it would be something for us to get during the end of game grind. Darn.
Rolled 5>>29977742There is a world of difference here.The turtles have insanely thick armor, are ungodly fast in melee and are in an area where these is little place to dodge.They are not worth it, let's not get greedy.
>>29977781but there's still the other door in the dead diver room, so it has to go SOMEWHERE.also, room between mimic room and purifier, it's suspiiiiicioooooous.
>>29977781So there isnt any secret rooms in this dungeon?Might as well just open that door then
>>29977781DON'T CARE! BASS LOVE SMASH!
>>29977807This.Get the key and go unlock the last door.
>>29977807We don't have to clear them out yet.Might as well get the to Cruiser before we run out of light.I guess we could make something out of that air tank - maybe some weapon that could lift the turtles up in the air?Or ask for explosives.
There are still 2 of those alligator reaverbots that ran away and are unaccounted for too.
>>29977968im waiting for the encounter with those 2 and the two turtles in one room
>>29977968They are bound to pop up, i'm still hoping we can lure the turtles away from their death hallway.(not now, but we are coming back for those turtles.)
>>29977988As long as we have room and it isn't a death hall way, then its all good.
>>29978050We could just tip them into the water from the side of thempretty sure they would be fucked
>>29978072thats the thing they have one major weakness, so if we can flip them then they are as good as dead.
>>29978119to add on to this, did we ever try to shoot their limbs/face or lure them away from the hall way?
>>29978178We were in a really bad position so we noped the fuck out
>>29978178They got no limbs.They a clam that is invincible except for the bottom which got a weak spot.
>>29978193true, but i think if we try again more prepared they are fucked.
>>29978209Yeah, but lets get more prepared first.
>>29977820>>29977829>>29977659>>29977625>>29977813With loot in hand you make your way back towards the room with the 'vault'. You make sure to take the long away around that doesn't take you past the Kuruguru's and take a quick look around before you do. After not finding anything out of place or of interest, you make your way into the vault room and approach the massive door. Plopping down your backpack you take out the keys and feed them into the three large holes in the door. Thankfully they’re all identical and apparently don’t have a specific order, as a door quickly sucks them up and begins to unlock itself moments after you put the large keys in their holes.Bolts jut out, seals break, reinforcement bars and locks slide out of place, and finally the massive doors pull back into the walls revealing…a mostly empty room.Your heart sinks as you shine your light into the very dusty room, not seeing a refractor, a chest, or even a Reaverbot! All you see in the rather small room is some kind of console of some kind. Walking up to it you see a small circular indentation in the console about the size and shape of your mother’s necklace.Seeing some writing by it you can make out a little of what it says despite it not really being in the common language. You can only make out bits and pieces, and even then you aren’t sure you have it right… “Release…Primary Gate. Authority…required. …three Sub-Locks…must…deactivated…Primary Gate Release.”It appears to be a lock of some sort for a ‘Primary Gate’ whatever that is. There are three towers, maybe each ruin holds a lock for this ‘primary gate?What do you wish to do Bass?
>>29978202My bad, i mixed them up with another type.
>>29978202couldn't we draw them so they crash into each other? they would both turn upside down when thay happen in the game
>>29978258Use the locket.
Rolled 17>>29978258>What do you wish to do Bass?Put our pendant in.
>>29978258Use mother necklease.Use it, because it a key.And we can read and talk to reavorbots.That kinda....crazy.The implications are clear as glass.
>>29978258use our plot necklace
>>29978258full stop. Dont stick your pendant in crazy. We can leave it like this, and find the other 2 consoles before overcommiting.Nope out. We've got loot, and we can come back to finish off the crocs.
>>29978273thats actually a good idea, we should try that at least once.
>>29978312Really? What are they, then? Not challenging, just not sure what you mean. Do you think we're a proto-anthro unit like Megaman is, and we got reborn just like he was? Who's holding our primary memory unit, then? Is that what Gospel is going to turn out to be?
>>29978324This. Don't activate ancient machinery until we know what it does. This terminal isn't going anywhere.
>>29978258Call Cruiser, maybe he knows what this is about.
Rolled 15>>29978383Eh, what's the worst that could happen?Another week of worldwide reaverbot massacre?
>>29978413It probably opens up a new ruin to investigate. Still, I don't want to stir up the reaverbots until we're actually prepared to enter said ruin.
>>29978413Or maybe it will unlock delicious refractors and maybe a shiny new airship? Or a robotic canine buddy!
Damn, no wonder we ran into an Hanmuru Doll, we went for the final dungeon first.
>>29978452Dude.We need to unlock 3 of these sub gates to open the big one.
>>29978452>activate all three>GIANT PILLAR RISES FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE THREE ISLANDSHAHA ITS TIME TO DIG!
>>29978459Let me guess, we'll call it Treeble, right ? ;)
>>29978472Well we did go into the one where the group of diggers went in and died firstBass dont give a fuck
>>29978472HAHAHAHAHAHAHAThe big island is the final dungeon, we still have two more runs left to do.
>>29978504No.Vanguarder, sigma dogOr the exe version of dog bass.
>>29978519no we didn't we avoided the fuck out of that one, we went into of the two smaller ones.(we would have found the bodies remember)
>>29978483yeah, but nobody will know what we're doing until we actually start sticking the pendant in everywhere. The harder it is for pirates to just swoop in while we're busy, the better, and opening a subgate alone might also have an effect on the reaverbots.
>>29978504What? No! Trebel is our last name!We call it Gospel. Still, we should just put it in. It may also unlock some more loot for us or give us a plot dump. Besides, better to do it now then when we are fighting back pirates.
>>29978550*one of the
>>29978291>>29978302>>29978312>>29978317>>29978459>>29978489Taking off the pendant you slap it down into the slot. It locks into place the entire console lights up. You sit in silence for a few moments waiting for something to happen, but nothing does. Taking the pendant out of the slot you put it back around your neck and begin to look around to see what it could have changed when the ground begins to shake."Bass! BASS! The Tower is starting to move! You need to get out of there! NOW!"Eyes widening you sprint east as fast as you can, bursting into the room with the Kuruguru's and hoping over them before they can recognize you're even in the room.Entering into the large open room you fought the Firushudot's in you see that it's FILLED with them now, dozens of Firushudot's popping out of the water and searching for someone, most likely you.Getting into the last hall before the elevator you find Tri-Angler's swarming out of new openings in the walls, and only barely make it to the elevator before they start firing on you.During the long elevator ride up the shaking only continues to increase and by the time you reach the exit you can barely keep yourself standing. Sprinting out the door you rush to the car, looking back to see the Bronze tower sinking down into the ground."What did you do!?!" Cruiser shouts from the front seat as you throw yourself into the back."I'll explain later! Let's just get the hell out of here!" You shout and Cruiser puts the peddle to the meddle, driving the AE86 back into the water and making a bee line for the main island...(Continued)
>>29978519We went for the safest one first.So the other two are worse than this.
>>29978550Oh goshnow im slightly worriedonly slightlybe beat this motherfucked without taking a scratch
>>29978594not the big one is worse, we don't know about the other small one.
>>29978558That's a good point. It's a better idea to keep the McGuffins on us, limit the chance of some jackass swooping in at the last second and stealing all of our hard work.
>>29978592the islanders are gonna be pissed.
>>299785921 down two more RUINS to go.
>>29978605We took the dam freaking ruin with just getting the arm injuried and the bullshit ear scream.
>>29978615So who is ready to try and rush towards the other small ruin?
>>29978614Well, considering how we just woke up all the sleeping reaverbots, it's safe to say that they're probably worse now.
>>29978592the islanders are gonna be pissed.>>29978615too little, too late, man
>>29978672well uhhhhh....Bounty hunting unlocked?
>>29978672We still gotta rush, plus i feel like they would have filled up with reaver bots either way.
>>29978572We can ask Ira for a name, if we find our dog.We can call him Rush. Or Haro.
>>29978760>Not GospelPlease anon. We arent megaman. Keep with the theme.
>>29978592You make it to the main island and after a half-an-hour of panicked waiting you find…nothing happened. Riding back to the bronze tower you find it’s inaccessible, with the entrance far, far below ground and only the top of the high tower sticking out of the dirt.Riding back to Tom and Tom’s junk shop, Cruiser pulls into the garage and you start going over your loot while he takes out the Firushudot corpse and plops it down onto a work bench. After going over what you got and explaining what the hell happened, the three of you sit down to some pizza from “Tofu, Pizza, and Stuff”.“That was pretty stupid of you just to stick that pendant into the slot like that.” Cruiser states as you hungrily dig into a plate of cheese sticks. “I’m sure Bass knew what he was doing Cruiser. I mean he wouldn’t risk the lives of everyone on the island over something stupid. You did say you could understand what was written on the panel, right?” Ira looks towards you questioningly and you nod your head.“Yeah. I think each of those towers holds a console like that. There’s three locks in total, which opens up another ruin somewhere on this island…” “Oh! I remember hearing about something similar to that being in Kattelox Island Ruins.” Ira exclaims.“Alright, as long as you knew what was going to happen and you weren’t sticking that pendant into every hole you could find…” Cruiser shrugs his shoulders and goes back to eating.“Well I didn’t count on the Tower sinking into the ground like that. I guess I’ll be ready for the next time though….”What do you want to talk about now Bass?>[A] Splitting up the loot!>[B] The next Dig!>[C] Other (Write in)

>>29978854this is why you don't stick your pendant in crazy.they aren't asking Bass about his pendant?voting to total up profits and expenses, and talking about what all this pendant business is all about. Maybe check if dad sent a mail.
>>29978854> [A] Splitting up the loot!Let's see what we found.
>>29978854[A] It's time to split the loot. After all, we need to make weapons, armor and upgrades. Still.. if the thing sinks down, that means the reaver bots can't leave. For that one island, that could very well be a good idea.
>>29978854>>[A] Splitting up the loot!See what we got and can make.>>[B] The next Dig!Plan for it and make a list of what we would need.>>[C] Other (Write in)Weapons, and maybe a few upgrades.
>>29978854ALSO, tell the, all what happened in the dig.About all the bullshit and how we survived.Also brag about soloing an city destroying reaverbot.
>>29979009Tell them, not tell the,.Fucking touch tab.
>>29979009Also sketch all the types of reaverbots weve metIt'll give us something to do rather than twiddle our fingers
>>29979036new reaverbot with new name, get Bass some reputation as a digger.
>>29979084>>29979036This. Nice ideas.Also, soloing a hanmuru doll is some SERIOUS fucking rep earn right there.
>>29978854Alright, we can rest for a while. Ira can fix our arm while we fill them in on what happened. Then, lets divide the loot. We got some money, lets split it. We also found some items that could probably be used to modify or make new stuff, so Cruiser gets to check them out, as well as that reaverbot we salvaged. And get our equipment double-checked as well.After that, lets prepare for the next dig. We need to check our supplies, see if someone's selling diving equipment and explosives we can use. Might as well see if we got mail, or if there's anything unusual going on.We should also start our own digging journal where we'll describe our finds, the various reaverbots, and use that thing for future reference. Once we're famous and an established digger, we can sell copies of it for the future generations.
>>29979195>>29979009(You already filled Ira and Cruiser in on what happened. Ira also treated your injured arm)>>29978945>>29978898>>29978910>>29978920>>29978965"So Bass, where did you get that pendant exactly?" Cruiser asks as the three of you eat."This? My Mom gave it to me before she..well disappeared." You let out a sigh, not wishing to talk about this after such a triumphant day."Disappeared?" Ira looks to you with a sad expression and you shake you head."I remember her leaving. So it's less that she disappeared and more like she never came back...but let's not talk about that right now! We have loot to split up!" You smile and think of all the Zenny you got in that ruin."Bass recovered 20500 Zenny in those ruins. We need at the very least 40,000 Zenny to finish basic repairs on that ship. I also need money for making armor and weapons, and there's also the subject of our shares." Crusier says, taking out a calculator."Since we're a team it's only fair we get a cut of the Zenny. Whatever doesn't go towards the ship or weapons, should be split equally amongst ourselves." Cruiser states.What do you think of this Bass? How do you want to divide up the money and how much money do you want to put towards the Ship and Weapons/Armor?
>>2997922970% goes automatically to the shipwe all get 10% eachseems fair
>>2997922970% goes for the ship.20% goes for gear and weaponsThe rest is split in 3.
>>29979267Gets my vote, disregard this.>>29979273
>>2997922950% towards the ship.15% for gear and equipment.10% to each member.5% slush fund for miscellaneous uses.
Rolled 5>>29979229>Whatever doesn't go towards the ship or weapons, should be split equally amongst ourselves." Cruiser states.Huh, sorry but now way.Bass is the one risking his hide down in those ruins.
>>29979267changing my vote to this, forgot about the funds to weapons and gear
>>29979229Fix up 1 more machinegun, incase of pirates.Get either a buster part to punch through armor, or something explosive that can go underneath/above armor.get real medical gear, pay for whatever Ira was making with that syringe.3/4 of the rest goes to the ship, and what's left will be split between them.
>>29979300Priority is the ship.We need that shit mobile as soon as possible. In 2 or 3 more dig runs, we get enough zenny to fly it.Then the world is ours to explore and dig
>>29979326And Ira patches us up afterwards, while Cruiser makes the gear we need to go down there in the first place. They're just as important to this operation as we are.
>>29979267>>29979300These sound good
>>29979300Seems alright. That's:> 10250 for the ship.> 3075 for equipment.> 2050 for each member.> 1025 slush fund.
>>29979267>>29979292>>29979332>>29979338>>29979367After some number crunching and discussion you all decide that 70% of the Zenny you got will go towards the ship, 20% will go towards weapons and equipment, and the remaining money will be split up amongst yourselves.>Ship Fund: 14350Ƶ>Weapons/Armor Fund: 4100>Share Money: 2050"Well now that we have a budget worked out, I want to ask you what you want me to do with this Reaverbot corpse." Cruiser points to the Firushudot lying on a nearby work bench."I could make some regular armor out of it, but I think I could make a special diving armor with the stuff you brought back. There's also that old ass machinegun I might be able to do something with. What I work on is up to you, I could try making something totally different, but it'd be cheaper working with the stuff you brought back." What do you want Crusier to make for you Bass?
>>29979579I kinda want the gun to be honest but noDiving gear or some armor for our arms seems better
>>29979579Diving Armour! We're a bass, we gotta be able to swim!

>>29979579Diving armor please that allows us to use mega buster in water. Maybe turn the machine gun into sub-machine gun for dual wielding with armor-piercing rounds so we don't have to use Goring shot in case of emerg
>>29979579Diving armor with a waterproof buster gun.I guess that old machine gun was waterproof, considering how we found it near a diver.

You ask."I don't think I'll be able to restore it, but if I had some more parts or some money to work with I might be able to use it to make a better weapon." Cruiser states. "What about the Diving Armor? Do you think you could Waterproof my Bustergun?" You ask eagerly."If I made the Diving Armor and the Waterproofing parts for your Bustergun, I'll probably use up all the materials from that Reaverbot you brought me. Also, while I can make parts to make your Bustergun waterproof, I don't think I can modify it to work underwater, that's the issue with a lot of energy based weapons." Cruiser says as you bite into a slice of pizza.So, do you want Cruiser to spend the Armor/Weapons Budget on Diving Armor and Waterpoofing parts for your Bustergun?
Rolled 1>>29979767>So, do you want Cruiser to spend the Armor/Weapons Budget on Diving Armor and Waterpoofing parts for your Bustergun?YesAlso, lets think of a weapon we could use underwater
>>29979767Ask Ira about what weapon she developing.If not readyl then go for waterproofing buster and get divng armor
>>29979767Armor priority should be in protecting the limbs. I don't want to risk getting our legs bitten off again. Diving armor is a secondary goal, though if he can get us a working rebreather I'd appreciate it. We're not going too deep here, we don't need a pressure suit yet. As for the machine gun, an idea: Take the stock and trigger mechanism from the gun. Use it to give the buster a more standard design. Less ergonomic, but easier to swap back to a free hand. Maybe take the clamping action from the Firushudot's mouth, tuned down, to let a brace automatically clamp around our arm when we grab the buster. A button by the safety will let us disengage it. That way we can swap it out a lot faster than having it as a sleeve-mounted weapon would, but still keep the firm grip when we need it.
>>29979812Theres always the classic spear gunother than that got nuthn
>>29979812How about actually being able to breath under water first.Also its time to go sopping and get some shit to flop over the turtles.
>>29979835SUBROCs, mate. Nothing like amphibious rocket cannons. Combine it with gyrojet tech and we'd have a rifle that can shoot in and out of water and hits damn hard, too. Wouldn't be good at close ranges, though.
>>29979833Nice thought there on the clamp ideashould be easy to implement
>>29979833seconded, we need armour, not a diving suit.
>>29979833>>29979879Just a heads up, If you use the Firushudot's shell to make regular armor you won't be able to make Diving Armor as good as what you'd get if you used the Firushudot's shell.
>>29979833Sounds alright with me.We can also use the diving gear we found to make a makeshift spear launcher. Pressurized air used to launch a bolt at high speeds at an enemy underwater, and we can always refill it with more air, as well as salvage the spears.
>>29979922You know what? fuck itjust make the armordiving suit can wait, there are still ruins to search
>>29979922Because the Firushudot is an amphibious Reaverbot? I guess it would be more neutrally buoyant, but I can't see it providing that big an advantage. It's not like they deal with deep pressures that much, either. Unless...are there underwater Reaverbot ecologies? Have the Reaverbots been recruited by the vile forces of the fish?!
>>29979986Is such a thing even possible?Yes, fucking fish.
>>29979922Get diving armor.We can get better normal armor but we cant get better diving armor if we fuck the shell.
Why not focus on close quarters fighting alongside the diving suit? Get a melee weapon.
>>29980043>melee weaponI wish we could make a beam saber or something.
>>29979833>>29979945>>29979931>>29979879It'll cost 3500 Zenny to make a full suit of armor and take up most of the Firushudot's parts.You could use the remaining Firushudot parts and 600 Zenny to make waterproofing parts for your Bustergun.Does this sound OK?
>>29980059we can its just that we dont have the parts
>>29980082YESwe arent planning on walking on the bottom of DA SEA for awhile
>>29979767I'd say armor over diving initially. We take damage more often than not and being able to take a hit is pretty important. Especially for our limbs. Besides, if we use a diving suit, what would happen if it got hit ONCE? It'd be wrecked. At least damaged armor can still function for the rest of it. Not so much for diving armor.
>>29980059But we can! They apparently give out most of the necessary parts for one of those as game show prizes, I'm sure we can whip one up eventually. Also, laser weapons would work fine underwater (I know it's a long way before we get the Shining Laser, but we might get something weaker sooner). Lasers of the right frequency (green or blue light, mostly) aren't absorbed very well by water, so they should work just fine. Something to remember for AGE Quest, too, if we wind up fighting some Wrozzos in Gen 3. SigMaxxis Rifles should work just fine in the water.
>>29980082yes.. now we will have proper digger armor. All we need now are dash boots.

Could you make me some regular armor and waterproofing parts for my Bustergun?" "Of course. That'll take up all of our weapon/armor budget and it'll take me about a week or so to finish them, but I can absolute make them for you." Cruiser says with a delighted grin.So you have a week to wait for your armor and parts to get finished.

>>29980139SigMaxxis also has the capability to move its projectiles around by manipulating the magnetic fields, so we can have tracking shots by the time we hit Gen 3. Probably based on messing with the captured IUS system.And with nanominiaturization, we probably can make the new suit capable of cloaking and generating at least some EM shield. Power the entire thing using the Black Raven cells, and put in the EM/IUS system.

All you need to know is that the were assholes and I'm a lot happier now."Feeling you overstepped your boundaries you try and talk to Ira about her past."So Ira, how well did you know your parents?"

Find out who we need to talk to in order to get the Tri-Angler recorded for posterity. New Reaverbot types being discovered is important. Aid Cruiser in whatever we can in regard to the crafting. At the least we can acquire parts. Likewise, ask Ira if there are any errands we could run for her while we're waiting.

We need all the help we can get in order to become a better digger.Also, check if someone's selling explosives, and if we got mail from our dad.

>>29981777never mind, it just changes it into a +5 instead of a +10.>>29981789Why?
>>29981744Naw, this is for everyday chats or small talk. The ridiculous idea is for when we get hyped about something and other people just get caught up in our hype and go with it.

>>29981827Basically this. Bass can get other hyped, but sucks at making small talk.
The real question is, Can we overcome our flaws?
>>29981681Seriously?If they betray us because of this flaw, then Bass will be just like his canon counterpart.Alone.But not because of being a fucking douchebag, no.Because We get NTR as hell with that fatal flaw.It reduced the dice roll by 1/4.That fucking huge. Especially since it seem that to pass DC, we need like 15 or 14.
>>29981827(Yeah, this won't effect that perk at all. Bass's flaw is only related to social interactions with his friends and in general)>>29981734>11Looking around the store you try to think of something to get Ira. Ira's a girl right? What do girls life? Clothes! Well what kind of clothes? Clothes that make them look pretty of course.Walking by a rather odd looking store you see a manikin in the window dressed in something that looks nice to you. Walking into the store you go up to the counter and ask to buy it. Apparently it's called a "Playboy Bunny" outfit, whatever that means. It didn't really look all that bunny-ish to you save for the ears.You see a whole bunch of other stuff in the store, whips, chains, phallic shaped objects, and lots of leather. You think of getting something else but you're sure Ira will like what you got her.Getting Cruiser a present is easy. He seems to be interested in Wrestling, so you bought him a book on it called "The Lie of the Wrestler: An in depth look into the falseness of 'professional wrestling" It's pretty thick and seems very intellectual, he'll just love it!Now that you've gotten your forgiveness gifts, is there anything you want to buy?
>>29982014Oh god, we're horrible at gifts. So very very horrible.
>>29982014>>29982014NO.SHIT.OUR SOCIAL LINKS!!!!!!!!
>>29982014Oh god. Dude an 11 isn't THAT bad. Jesus.
>>29982014Oh no. Buy some alcohol.
>>29982014>>29982047What this anon said.That shit is like getting a 1 on a dice roll.Goddamn it. This kind of shit gets people mad as hell.Mad enough to fucking leave.
>>29982014[Sweating Intensifies]Maybe this wasnt a great ideaWould it be meta to reconsider our gifts?Maybe get a second suggestion from themselves?
>>29982047>>29982042>>29982039Told you so.
>>29982014DUDE!!! WRONG LEVEL OF FAIL! THAT LEVEL OF FAIL IS FOR CRIT FAILS WITH NEGATIVE MODIFIERS!
>>29982014THIS IS BULLSHITI COULD UNDERSTAND IF WE ROLLED A 5 BUT COME ON
Rolled 19>>29982014>>29982072Yeah, I really don't like the direction this is taking either.
Let it happen. Friendships need some rocky times, and Bass needs some interactions that don't take place in a fishing boat.
>>29982073Too meta, you guys have to roll with the punches.>>29982072We hardly know these people, what do you expect, plus we are from a small island village.
>>29982108Why does a small island village have a playboy outfit anyway
>>29982108Look.If this kind of consenquences keep happening.They will hate bass.and they will leave. Then bass will be alone. With no mechanic or medic.And no Ship.
>>29982108We come from an island where everyone knows everyone, not where everyone is mentally RETARDED!
This is a VERY thin wire we waking on here Crosswire, Be VERY SURE you know what your going to write is acceptable
>>29982154We were named after a fish.
>>29982014Come on man this goes way too far, at least have him have some second thoughts about the gifts. Or just declare a mulligan and do it over. This level of dickery isn't fun at all.
>>29982181And we had no friends before.But still, this is a bit too much.
>>29982138No we are from a small island village so we wouldn't know about it, i think this place is a fishing hub though.>>29982150True, but they seem to hold on to their word.>>29982154We never heard of playboy, but i don't know about the wrestling one.
>>29982150Or they might like the gifts. We rolled an 11, after all.
>>29982014God damn it, I leave to take a shower and when I get back I find THIS? What the hell?
>>29982181THAT WAS A SINGLE PERSON! NOT THE ENTIRE FRACKING ISLAND!
>>29982220WHY THE FUCK WOULD ANYTHING NICE EVER HAPPEN
>>29982230It was the person who raised us.
>>29982225THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LEAVE! NEVER LEAVE!!!
>>29982234>>29982230Calm down, and just see what happens.
You people are overreacting over a damn joke. They aren't going to leave. They'll be pissed, but they won't leave. There is nowhere else for them to go.
>>29982254Mine was a joke
>>29982243And Bass before the gift shit was a determined, self dependent young man going out to the world to make his dream true.Now he acting like a shonen retard idiot.
>>29982258Let them bitch and whine.They act like these are the worst presents for us to get them, but i can think of worse stuff right now.
>>29982243No, I live in a small town. EVERYONE FUCKING RAISES EVERYONE!
>>29982014A roll of eleven means boring, neutral gifts. ones that will be appreciated for their effort in being given. Not... this.
>>29982258They're trapped on the island. With us~
>>29982287Calm your shit and ease off the caps lock.
>>29982283You gave a present to a girl you barely know of 2 days a fucking bunny suit.You give a guy who fucking do wrestling moves in a real life fight a book about why wrestling is a lie.You only met them for a few days.That shit will change their view on bass.And bass will continue to do so.Until the ship is ready. Then they leave bass behind after spending a month with him.
>>29982288YES, ANOTHER PERSON UNDERSTANDS! Do you think it should only be this bad on a critfail? 'Cause I do!
>>29982096Don't be ridiculous, Bass would have gotten something MUCH worse with a critical failure.>>29982138(This isn't a small island village, this is a well developed town/city)>>29982074>>29982073>>29982072>>29982060>>29982047>>29982042>>29982039>>29982108>>29982150>>29982179>>29982225>>29982230(Calm the fuck down guys! It was a joke! You guys have succeeded at just about EVERYTHING else up to this point. You've rolled more 20's then I've ever seen in my life. I wanted to make things interesting by making Bass a bit of a social idiot to make his interactions with his friends a little more interesting and amusing. Sure maybe I made the 11 a little more harsh then needed, but it was to be funny. Bass isn't going to lose anything over this, if anything it'll be a learning experience)
>>29982335He was in a sex shop, he could have gotten her slutty underwater or a sex toy, hell he could have gotten something that offends her more by getting a book that talks about modern healing being bullshit.2.We could have gotten cruiser a dress or, well for cruiser you got me there.
>>29982341Were scared you were going to railroad usOther QM's have done it before
>>29982341This doesn't feel like a failure though. It feels like a colossal screwup. Not because they are bad gifts but because they are OFFENSIVE to our friends. Please can you replace them with something... I dunno, just regular stupid?
>>29982341Maybe? This is critfail territory, something NO ONE could bounce back from to keep their friends they've barely made in day or 2, after they gave them this stuff!
>>29982399I wasn't i was just waiting for the results of the presents.
>>29982407>>29982404He just told you that this won't have any real negative repercussions and you still want him to change it?
>>29982404Yeah. I mean, come on. Even Bass isn't so insensitive as to not pick up on when he's crossing the line.
>>29982341The problem is you gave us a harsh penalty, and we deffied the odds of getting some terrible result of 5 to get something above average, we should see that reflected in the results.
>>29982396>Bunny suit>Not slutty underwear>Cruiser getting a dress>Not as Bad as getting a book that spits on what one of the things he love the dearest.
>>29982439YES! This is worse than an EVIIIILLLL Bass. An evil bass couldn't have gotten things more offensive!
>>29982455I admitted you were right about cruiser, but a bunny suit is a costume, not a piece of underwear, hell it covers a Shit ton more.
>>29982505>Bunny Suit>Playboy >Implying there isn't some kind of playboy in Legends>Ira not knowing that kind of shit
>>29982404>>29982407Yeah, these are just REALLY bad ideas. These aren't just socially unaware, these are outright idiocy. Bass clearly knows enough about interacting with girls from his previous discussions with Ira to know you don't give them skimpy clothing when you're not in a relationship with them. And he's seen enough of Cruiser to know the guy is passionate about his hobbies and probably wouldn't like a book about how they're stupid. So instead of major screw-ups, just misreading the situation. Like, getting Cruiser a book on Lucha Libre when he's a fan of American style wrestling, or getting Ira a REALLY unflattering shirt or something like that. Stuff that shows he doesn't really know these people that well yet, not stuff that's outright insulting.
>>29982525I know for a fact that there are. There's even a store on Kattleox Island that sells them. Megaman comments on how much he likes them!
Guys seriously he straight out said nothing bad will happen at allCALM DOWN
>>29982341Frankly, it feels like you are giving us a disproportionately harsh result for an average roll because we are usually lucky with the dice.
>>29982547They won't listen they want the shit changed, even if nothing bad happens.
>>29982505Perhaps, but makes a lot more assumptions. This is something really personal to a girl and can have a lot of messed up meanings. You know how Hunter is a creep? This brings forth hunter levels of creep.
>>29982563You don't understand.Bass flaw will prevent any advancement on relationship with Cruiser or Ira.In fact, due to time, they will get worse.And then Ira and Cruiser will eventually leave Bass when they see an opportunity to leave.
>>29982547NO! He should use something like>>29982527this person's suggestions! These are fine!>>29982014THESE ARE THINGS A THAT SOMETHING COMPLETELY UNKNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT PEOPLE GIVES SOMEONE!
>>29982588And getting sexy underwear isn't?
>>29982591SO then we upgrade our charisma

If you guys are just going to throw a temper tantrum and stall the thread over a JOKE then I won't try to do anything interesting anymore. >>29981734>11Bass gets some cheap chocolates for Ira and a couple of usedVHS tapes for Cruiser.Is there anything else you want to buy?
>>29982645the bunny suit and the anti-wrestling book.
>>29982627Which will still fuck us up because we only get one point to upgrade per level, which we need in order to survive in other things.And apparently we'll roll that -5 every time we interact with them.>>29982645Some snacks and drinks. We'll go help Cruiser with making our stuff, have a drink and a snack.
>>29982645I'd like to buy that bunny suit. For ourself.

>>29982667>>29982689Fucking Great.Now the trolls are here.>>29982711There a flaw and there getting a crit fail roll by rolling an 11.
>>29982645>I won't try to do anything interesting anymore.That isn't necessary, just don't throw results our way that don't fit the rolls. It feels really unfair.
>>29982730I'm not a troll? I really want to get that bunny suit for us.
>>29982645(When you called them jokes I was imaging the looks on Ira and Cruiser's faces while Bass is just there smiling like a damn idiot asking if they like their gifts and laughed. Sorry most people got fussy, it was funny to me at least.)Nope nothing else mini-job time? Please be mini-job time.
>>29982730sorry you cant take a joke guy.
>>29982747Explain why the fuck would Bass want a bunny suit.For what reason? Please explain how that going to help Bass in digger or be related to any of his hobbies.>>29982762You say that until there a mayority.Look at some of DBZ Quest bullshit.
>>29982711But do the other things help us alot? No, they are specifically tuned towards specific situation! This, this perma-critfail will make Bass completely unable to talk to ANYONE or do ANYTHING! In fact, it's likely to get us killed! "Oh, sorry Mister police chief, you don't like your book on POLICE BRUTALITY?!"
>>29982780>Explain why the fuck would Bass want a bunny suit.>For what reason? Please explain how that going to help Bass in digger or be related to any of his hobbies.Too get you worked up over nothing, it seems to be incredibly easy>You say that until there a mayority.>Look at some of DBZ Quest bullshit.Well then its a good thing this is DIGGER QUEST not DBZ QUEST
>>29982645Sorry Crosswire. I understand you wanted to have some humor, but that just felt a bit more heavy handed then it had to be. We do enjoy the quest, hell.. I LOVE the quest myself, but that just felt a bit.. too much.Still, I say we get some books on diggers for ourselves, maybe some silly little random things and maybe a few help books.
>>29982780Because bass would be adorable in a bunny suit?
>>29982759Well I'm glad one person found it funny and didn't lose their minds over nothing.I'm just going to end this here for tonight. I'm not in a great mood what with everyone throwing a tantrum over a joke and it's obvious it's not going to stop. Good night everyone.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29972934/
