I'll direct people to here.>Basic 1Hook up some psychic interfaces to the hub and see if the collective ghosts can exert any psionic might from it that is greater that what you'd expect from the amount of equipment attached.>ResearchWork on developing psi-interfaces for living things that are much less intrusive, and can be applied/used without requiring an operation and implantation on the subject. These are mainly to be used for allowing us to hack into subjects' brains easier (at least that's their initial purpose).
Rolled 76>>30221345Damn, the Shadows were supposed to take those guys out. I wonder what payment they'll demand to finish the job.
Rolled 20>>30221402I'll support it.
Rolled 17>>30221402Lets do it!
Rolled 81>>30221402Well the hub had some more interfaces hooked up to it we didn't really notice much of a difference though.Work has begun on a psi interface that can be used without an operation or implantation of the subject(talk about complicated).>>Turn 15>>>>>>>A.

Rolled 92>>30221502>basic 1: C: try to improve weapons. Let's have a look at the advanced military hardware we got and see what we can learn or apply to future projects.>research: continue
Rolled 34>>30221502Is Mat still in here? Is the purging of the infested areas of the lab complete yet?>Basic 1Look into trying to boost the power of our psy-interfaces.>Mad ScienceContinue research on the interface. Try using some sort of electron array deployed on the brain stem to weaken the host's resistance, before the not-implant uses its psy capabilities to take over the brain. The electron array should knock them out (and if it's deployed across a larger swathe of the brain it can even target areas that are generating psy-resistance). Developing particular algorithms for how to attack the brain with psy-probes to utilize instinctual responses to gain a foothold might also help.
Rolled 96>>30221502do we already have the ability to establish remote psi data connections, with the ability to stream live audio and video?>>30221575ill support this as well
>>30221649Nice roll sir
Rolled 43>>30221649>>30221575I'll go for it, use this advice >>30221645 on the research though.
Rolled 72too late to join?
>>30221678I am quite pleased with the results

Rolled 99>>30221702No feel free to jump in.
>>30221709Can we ask Mat if they're going to take care of our other comrades?Are any of the new facilities wrecked? What's the Borg Matrix Array? And offer the OmniTri forces refreshments and those healing implants we developed.
>>30221709score! >AI CORE(under lockdown)does this mean that the room that contains the AI is the room that was locked down earlier (we dont know what is inside) or we have access to the room but not the use of the AI core
>>30221709Woah. Basic 1: make clones all day every day for borgifycation Research 1: continue
>>30221759lets finish out the turn with the good rolls we have before we jump to do anything else
>>30221759That's a bad idea before we know the state of the cloning labs. They're probably wrecked anyway.>>30221754Probably a little of both. AI cores also have lots of failsafes on them that are quite lethal if you tamper with them. It's probably off limits until we can develop the ghosts' hacking abilities more fully.
>>30221782I just got excited, I meant next turn.
>>30221709>AI CORE(under lockdown)>suddenly remember the most recent CivPoor AI and Worm they deserved better.
>>30221709What sort of things were inside our lab that they killed?>>30221793>>30221754Also, that AI core was almost certainly locked down FOR A GOOD REASON.
>>30221709Extra: thank the brave guys of Omnitri! All the food and water they can drink!
>>30221649>>30221575Here's where EDE tries to find some way to make the military weapons blow up on us to discourage just supporting good rolls.
>>30221709We now have a clone facility, ask the soldiers for some blood sample so we may check to see if they are healthy..... and clone later but don't tell them about that.
I can't find your archive, so I'll just try to jump right in.1) Can we convert the bioborg/cyborgs into warmachines?2) Would it be possible to make a flesh eating virus to combat the zombies? (I assume it would affect us as well)3) should we make characters or are we all part of some hivemind? I'd like to play a research scientist who was found in cryo stasis who is a bit of a loon.
>>30221885We can clone the doctor..
>>30221905It's all under the tag "hivemind" on suptg. Here's the immediately last thread. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30204804/
>>30221907"Fate" wouldn't like that.
>>30221709Can anybody give me a quick summary. It seems that I missed thread 2and I would prefer to not miss thread 3 because I was hunting through the archives.
>>302219051) as far a I know we dont have the materials to do so effectively but we probably could at some point in the future2) every thing we do has the propensity to blow back and annihilate us, so flesh eating virus could become dangerous quick3) its more of a hivemind for the posters, but named hero units exist, give us bonuses, and can be ordered to do certain thing, as far as i can tell.not that I am the definitive source of how any of this works, in the least im scrambling to try to understand everything and im reading the archives right now
>>302219051) We could, but it'd be difficult, extremely expensive and require quite a bit of research and ingenuity.2) We don't have biological warfare specialized facilities here, and that aside the zombie virus generally defeats plagues like that.3) We're the /tg/ gods that dictate what this civilization does. There are hero-units in game, but they are their own separate entities with their personalities and etc. They react to what we/our civ does and will leave if we're acting idiotically.
>>30221977We got into a tight spot where zombies and monsters were swarming all over our Ski Resort and seemed like they were going to discover us and break in...then we made a (miraculous) deal with a shadowy organization that promised to keep us secret, and a military organization that has an obligation/responsibility to protect us.If you want more just skim the archive by using cntrl+f "Hub".
>>30221907Could back fire..... and possibly kill us. Should we test fate or just stick to cloning soldiers for a bit until we have got it down.
Rolled 53>>30221753>MatYeah...about that you know a heads up would of been REALLY nice when it came to whatever fuck it was you had stuffed in yourselves.The cloning is damaged and the Matrix is a mess.>>30221754The section, room, and core itself are all locked up tight.
>>30221905Can I play a super intelligent cybernetic monkey who was hiding in one of the sections you just cleared out?
>>30222059I didn't want to rip on the already mad scientist
>>302219051) we could not, we have rapidly diminishing resources and unless god himself intervenes we will get our shit stuffed in long before that.2) it would kill us, and probably superpower the zombies3) tripfagging is good, but no you don't "play a character"
>>30222037>Should we test fateYou don't want to know what happens to people who test fate. . .
>>30222052What does the matrix do when it's working though?Sorry about that, our good friend Mat. Ask away.>>30222059It's not that kind of Civ. You participate in forming a consensus for our actions, not play a character.
Rolled 61>>30221575Military hardware has built in encryptions however we WERE able to crack it...only to show yet MORE encryption they even went through the trouble to make the actual devices themselves complicated as hell.Research continues they think it might be possible to create some sort of screen or hardware that could work but it seems like they might be missing something key...with the direct implants one could rely directly upon the brain to help make up for it.>>Turn 16>>>>>A.

>>30222104they die like everybody else on the planet?
>>30222120Hmm...what are you getting at with these hints. Let me think...
>>30222120Basic 1: clean up all the new facilities that Omnitri fixed for usResearch 1: The missing element is a ghost, that can interact with the brain psionicly and MAKE the tech work. Puzzle solved :3 sorry dude
>>30222194yea, gears turning
Rolled 33>>30222200Forgot my roll :3
Alright, so how bout diggin' for materials or creating a network of tunnel excavations to scavenge for supplies? We could rig them with explosives and bait them with meat and sensor traps in case they are discovered, or lock the entrances down.Our construction bots ought to be able to handle a little digging. Or are we on a collapsed time frame?
>>30222200Ghosts live in the implants, not the brains though. They just come about from the psy-interface being constantly on and shaped by the person's given psy-signature.
Rolled 50>>30222156Death is kindness here.>>30222123Psionics lab is...the best one could expect Pre Fall wise but considering how well psionics went that never really said much. Even legendary researchers such as the esteemed Dr. Volk-.We do have some materials that could improve it but I doubt we get it even passed crude and no real way past basic.>Dr. Hakarr I HEARD THAT VOLK CAN SUCK A BAG OF DICKS!As I was saying it was a tech that only recently was able to be understood by non E5 elements.
>>30222239we dont have working construction bots, but we already have a network of tunnels that probably lead somewhere, except they are infested with something.
Rolled 80>>30222245You put a ghost into the new wi-psy emitter and it does the psy part while the tech reads the data. Thus far we need ghosts to brain hack.
Rolled 90>>30222277I thought the bioborgs were construction bots? damn, this is hard to follow/backtrack
>>30222239We don't have construction bots and we kinda want to stay locked up in our little lab/vault where we can be safe.
>>30222277Nah, the tunnels are mysteriously clear...but something uses them we aren't looking.>>30222239We don't have equipment for doing that stuff, and even if we did it'd attract shitloads of attention that we can't handle. You should really read some of the archives, we're not big fish in this world.>>30222265Aah, see there's that signature EDE flair that I could never impart.
Rolled 16>>30222301You have no idea. It's worth it but there is a learning curve.
you know what? I think I'm a little in over my head here. You guys go ahead and play, I think you are little too far in for me to be doing any good here. Good Luck, Have Fun.
Rolled 8>>30222339The trick is merely paying attention my civs are desire to not require knowledge of previous civs.
Rolled 96>>30222265>basic 1: try to fix up and improve on whatever new facilities we can manage>research: having the non-implants connect to the hub so that the ghosts can access the implants
>>30222265Remember this will be the face of Genie when ever we roll a 1.
>>30222294Hmm, I thought we were already using ghosts for the hacking once a psy connection was made...Oh well, I guess I can go for it.>>30222200Supporting this, but Basic 1: is "Clean up and repair (to the extent that is reasonable/easy) the new facilities that Omnitri cleared for us. Also make sure there's not anything lurking in air ducts."
>>30222368Support this but not rolling to fuck up.
>>30222402you gotta roll to have the vote count, but its best roll of 3 so as long as you dont roll a 1 you cant fuck it up
Rolled 54>>30222368This, rolling
>>30222422I think, from the oldest archived thread i could find
Rolled 40>>30222368I'd say with the Cloning Lab being the primary location to fix.
>>30222383If I was wrong and they are integrated them I'm stumped :/

Rolled 37>>30222463That I exactly how I picture Genie. We do good and then something comes to shit on our parade. This is Mr. Bones Wild Ride Tier difficulty.
>>30222643hahaha mr bones
Rolled 20>>30222368Our facilities have been fixed(free tip you can only do one thing during a action thus 'and' is great way to lose out on anything past it).Meanwhile we are looking into the ability to connect to the Hub with non implant interfaces.

>>30222662We are locked in right?
>>30222700Features like what are lacking? Also, is the connection enough to ease mind control?
Rolled 36>>30222700Basic1: fix the cloning facilityMad science: make the impossible possible!
Rolled 84>>30222700aw so we didn't improve the facilities?then >basic 1: Improve the new facilities>Research: Try the non surgical implants, with the remote hub access
>>30222700>Meanwhile we are looking into the ability to connect to the Hub with non implant interfaces. We did figure it out but unfortunately the connection is noticeably weaker and some features are outright not possible.I really hope you mean indirect connection via the ghosts.We do NOT want anything but ghosts reaching the hub or that defeats the purpose of the filtration and failsafe system entirely.
Rolled 74>>30222774Negative our tech does not ALLOW the creation of psi energy so it alone is capable of such a thing. After all the interface merely facilitates it does NOT create.
>>30222810this is gonna hurt soooo bad when all of our rolls start to suck
>>30222796You want to fix the cloning facility so we can clone people so that we can increase our population, right?Then let's go about this the right way and improve our hydroponics facilities first, okay?>>30222810What are we trying the non-surgical implants with the remote hub access for...? What are we trying to do?What are we improving about the new facilities? Which facility are we improving and what do we want improved about it? Why do we want to improve that aspect of it?
>>30222814well yea once we get the non surgical implants to work, the next step is to make sure that it is a one way only connection
>>30222814We don't have a filtration and failsafe system yet.>>30222832Aah, you bastard. So how do the non-implants work then? Also, do the ghosts have any psionic capacity?
Rolled 60>>30222814Honestly I am kinda picturing this project at a "brain hacking ray" unless I am misunderstanding something.
Rolled 51>>30222891Ghosts have NO natural psionic capability.Non-Implants work by classic broadcasts it CAN do psionic but the user must already be trained psionic for it have any effect.>>30222892I am just waiting for some clever solution or smart ideas.
Rolled 1>>30222848We already have some food production and we are going to turn them into Borg, that don't eat. Not to mention we got our food fully restocked with everything else.
>>30222891>We don't have a filtration and failsafe system yet.That's inherent with the design of the HUB and Ghost system.Only Ghosts can reach the hub, and ghost themselves provide a psuedo "purification" of what is supposed to reach the hub and in between people.At least if we're going by how the anon designed it.He went into great detail differentiating it from the more compromisable Memor hivemind.https://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27884010/#27894542A whole thread where he goes into the failsafes of the Hub "colony mind"Also the shortened pastebinhttp://pastebin.com/NYzykKBe
Rolled 75>>30222976Dodged another one.
>>30222928Hmm. So our general troops have, generally, no psionic abilities?
Nice we got lot of things now.
Rolled 50>>30223040Implants serves to help 'stimulate' psionic growth/use. Your basic trooper does indeed have actually pretty good psionics...but their almost entirely untrained.
Rolled 71>>30223040For their own safety.
Rolled 76>>30222928if improve the facilities is too vague then>basic 1: improve the Psi shielding around the Psi labsto make the non surgical implants work I suggest we repurpose the nano machines that we created earlier to facilitate direct brain interface. then load it up in a projectile and shoot it at people. the nanobots then relay the signal from the brain to the projectile/implant>research: repuposing the nanobots to allow brain to non surgical implant interface.
>>30222997Well, it would be swell if he were here right now to elaborate on that.
>>30223070Hmm...okay. I see...>>30222928What if we cared significantly less about leaving the target ENTIRELY intact and allowed, like, big-ass needles to be shoved into the brain to aid in interfacing. As in (with some research) it wouldn't harm them permanently, but they can't really be removed without killing the subject. Is that more viable?
Rolled 81>>30223040And we have no troops, they are scientists at best and experiments at worst
Rolled 22>>30223101Fucking love it! Nano bot cloud brain hacking!ROLLING FOR MAD SCIENCE
Since we are making a wireless hub that would connect via psionics. What is stoping other psi people coming in and accessing our hubs.
>>30223245that is something to figure out before we step out of the prototyping phase. perhaps we should make a pseudo-hub, with nothing on it for sandboxing purposes.
Rolled 29>>30222700>Basic 1Repair the cloning facilities. Be sure to check in the airvents to make sure no mold or monsters is growing in there.>Mad ScienceContinue work on the Brain-interfaces, mod some so that we can slap one (really easily) on someone and then have control over basic motor functions. It can shove needles into their brain or whatever is necessary, but try to reduce implantation damage. If, to be removed safely, we need to leave the needles in that's no problem.Needless to say these experiments shouldn't be performed upon our members.>>30223185>>30223101No, nanites are temperamental and extremely specialized. We don't have facilities for working with them, the only reason we got working healer-nanites was because of 2 fantastic rolls and blind luck and our hero being uber-badass.>>30223245Our Hub actually uses standard comms to interact with everything, our implants are the things that have minor psy-boosting abilities.
>>30223245Because is designed to be Hub inaccessible to psionics, only ghosts can reach the hub.Ghost are also unnafected by psionics themselves, since they are only "mirrors" or emulations of the host.If a host is compromised, the Implant and the ghost will detect this and warn the other ghosts and/or the hub.
Rolled 63>>30223318Fine lets play it safer, does his mad science roll count or do I need to give one? None the less I support this!
Rolled 90>>30223318I guess but I still think that nanites done right would be more effective, but we will self that for the future. ill vote for this in the mean time
Rolled 13>>30223457>>30223378>>30223318>>30223454Consensus yay!
>>30223318wait didnt we already repair everything last turn...
>>30223713Hmm, maybe we did. Oh well, probably needed more work done anyway.
>>30223794can we amend fix to improve?
Rolled 24>>30223713You did just not improve ah the delicious taste of a wasted action.>>30223318Cloning facilities are already repaired. Unfortunately however they are exhausted in certain key materials required for their operation and yes we did check the vents we found a little mold but no monsters.MAD Science!Well...we came up with a design but its rather bulky and we had no one to test it out on...so we THINK it works. >>Turn 18>>>>>A.

Clone people for testing. Is what i'm thinking.
Rolled 75>>30223816Basic: look through our stockpiles for the things need for the cloning lab.Research: Since we now have something that works start reverse engineering it to make it smaller!
Rolled 50>>30223816What do we need to get the cloning facilities up and running? Can we make it? Or buy it?>>30223931Vote roll
Rolled 42>>30223816Mmkay...well I think we should get back to making ourselves tougher. As per OmniTri's suggestion.>Basic 1Dig into the Psionic Labs, see if there's any research notes hidden anywhere in there (physically or otherwise) and identify what needs to be repaired and if we have what would be required.>ResearchSee if there's any way we can increase our personal durability further, preferably by improving our abilities to take hits (from bullets) rather than recover from/endure them.
Rolled 59>>30223816>basic 1: improve the Psi lab>research: see if anyone from omnitri is willing to be tested on with the non surgical implant
Just in case no one else is paying attention. We been spending 2 resource a turn. Got to be careful.
Rolled 64>>30223816AlertZombie numbers are growing.>>30223962The stuff required is raw bio products and other specific materials that were not easy to get even before the Fall.
>>30223984Yeah, because we've been doing research or repair actions with the basic action and researching with the research.Though it does puzzle me why we can't cannibalize Vault 101 special supply parts to tend to most of our research needs.
Rolled 63>>30223978there is no reason to get tougher because we are using omnitri as proxy troops
>>30224031If we make significant breakthroughs then we can give them to Omnitri.Also if you don't think we're going to be fighting for our lives at some point then you're going to be severely disillusioned very soon.
Rolled 21>>30224003Do we have any troops stationed here?
>>30223931"we THINK it works." Doesn't mean does work. I say we need to test it first on something.
Rolled 9>>30223978I'll back this.
>>30224068if we are going to make something tougher then lets focus on improving the omnitri troops from the get go, there is no point in developing something, only to find out that it is incompatible with the omnitri troops and we have to rework everything
Rolled 21>>30223978and claws from the monsters. But other wise down for this.
Rolled 65>>30224068We just made a huge breakthrough. Wireless implant. Probably great for lots of military things. Seeing as the cloning labs are a bust, we should revisit the Ghostbot idea. Sell the new tech for a few hundred ghost bots
Rolled 6>>30224089Don't do it! It's the Memor all over again.>>30223816Also MAD SCIENCE ROLLBegin developing a training regimen so all of our troops can utilize their psionics to some degree
>>30224168You remember when EDE flat-out said that making ghostbots was a bad idea and that Kaharr would leave if we continued down that road? It was just last thread.
Rolled 17>>30224192Oh god. I'm sorry I didn't know.
Rolled 96>>30223978I'll back it to get this turn gone.>>30224229It's okay, you didn't have consensus.
Rolled 47>>30224089We can't try if we don't have the materials.
Rolled 59>>30224192well are wasting a lot of resource on nothing then if we don't make some use of it.>>30224259But be have the resource to make something we are not sure of working smaller?
Rolled 28>>30224192No. Stop. We had a solid plan guys! We built this new(incomplete) tech for Omnitri. 1 or 2 more turns refining it should be the ticket.>basic: call Omnitri tell them about the good news, also that we need a snatch and grab team to get us some test subjects.>research: improve the user interface on the new wi-psy project (smaller, easier to use)
>>30224313Eh, maybe once our members are capable of going outside without being torn to shreds we can go get some test subjects. I'm unsure of whether OmniTri would be willing to do that for us.
Rolled 85How about.>get huge cloning force.>send clone power to omnitri to labor/train to be soldiers.>ask them to do dirty work for us. >profit??
>>30224361zombie implants ended with warnings of dire consequences, i doubt that monsters or mutants would end terribly better, so that means we would have to find and kidnap some bandits or something
Rolled 56>>30224361We can pay for it with the new tech. That's all we need before we can give them some new goodies.
>>30224412our cloning vats dont work because we are missing key resources for them
Rolled 27>>30224412We can't make clones, we are not advanced enough.
>>30224414Mutants and monsters would almost certainly end better, they don't have extremely powerful global-spanning psionic entities backing them.
Rolled 31>>30224414It just hinted at things they on themselves would not have been dire.
>>30223816you never told us what the borg matrix does
>>30224481Hey, good point.
Rolled 68>>30224465Maybe Omnitri has prisoners from other battlefields, or "willing volunteers", whatever it takes I seriously don't care how we get them. Science.
Rolled 11>>30224452>>30224436More of a suggestion for later.
>>30224465>Mutants and monsters would almost certainly end better, they don't have extremely powerful global-spanning psionic entities backing them.Well, most anyway.If we ever see any humanoid mutants with pale complexion and skin problems, it's time to Shit Our Pants.
Rolled 76>>30224520We would like experiment fodder do you happen to have any.
Rolled 89>>30224465Plants would probably be the safest bet. I mean if we use mutants we could grab a hive. If we grab zombies we have the same problem. If we get a monster we could have something akin to the psionic disturbance field.>>30224313Maybe not a snatch and grab? Volunteers are less likely to try and murder us if we infuse them with insane amounts of power accidentally.
Rolled 9>>30224562Still I am feeling like we are back to square 1 as far as acquiring manpower is concerned.
Rolled 50>>30224598>pale mutants with skin problems.Um psi mutants or anti-psi mutants?
Rolled 9>>30224623>Infusing them with insane amounts of power>like Genie won't use that as an excuse to rekt our shit.Remember this ride has no breaks.
Rolled 69>>30224481I will post that data as soon as i find the notes that i had on it...
Rolled 67>>30224842man I have no idea where they went I an normally pretty good about that sort of thing.
>>30224949Do you like, keep notes and numerical stats on all of the equipment that you make up?
Rolled 54>>30224977I have a system of stats the rest of it is descriptions, fluff, abilities, traits and so on.
Rolled 97>>30225024For example I will compare a bandit from Bloodsnow and a borg from vault 101Bandit Outlaw Male Bonus stealthExperienced +1Military outlaw + 2Youth(+1 Recovery -1 wisdom)Rank 3 Experienced BanditRank 4 Bad Ass in Stealth only101 Borg SecurityBonus HardinessPsi unlockedPsi bonuscyborg +2Educated(+1 in operations requiring knowledge)Rank 2 Advanced
Rolled 99>>30225161bah forgot to include the psi bonus for 101 and the lack of training penalty. It would of been the same but still.Anyway what has consensus been achieved?
>>30225161still looking for matrix info?
>>30225195Well this has the most votes. >>30223978And this roll >>30224254>>30225161Interesting.
Rolled 52>>30225198Yes. Give me some time and I should be able to find it eventually.
>>30225161What about Rank 4 Bad Ass in CQC because of our several turns of training (with some 90+ rolls and a crit)?
>>30225195I think that the general idea is >Basic 1 Get some form of test subject>Research (free)enhance the psionic wireless.Correct me if I'm wrong
Rolled 23>>30223978We did find much in the psionic labs other then some mentions about the lack of psi reactive/counter materials and mentions of some sort of crystals and some sort of breakthrough. For the most part the labs are there and their very good. Just might not be enough as psionics was a very tricky field. Armor augs have been mentioned but one is rather aggressive in its implantation while the other features only minor benefit. >>Turn 19>>>>>A. Scavenge for food>>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>>C.

Rolled 26>>30225282That was included in the Experienced bonus combined with certain events metamorphosed into it.Rather that benefit ended up falling to NON Outlaw class benefits meaning they were actually one Rank weaker when it didn't come to CQC and stealth. By the way Faceless had some interesting stats.>>30225368They only secured the entrances into your area beyond that its unknown.
Rolled 12>>30225392Feel free to post them, one of my struggles with running a mimic civ was difficulty statting things.
Rolled 11>>30225371Voted up!
>>30225371>>30225312I'd be very worried if they were Psi-Crystals.They can be both very useful, and very damning if not used properly.
Rolled 47>>30225371what crystal packet>basic 1: send omnitri to explore the tunnels>research: Psi conducives/insulators
Rolled 73>>30225473We discovered a crystal packet when we searched the military stash long ago.
Rolled 60>>30225371Awww maannn. Going for it.
>>30225454Well as long as we don't use them to emit any sort of field we'll be fine.Memory Storage, Guns, Individual Amplifiers worked rather well.
Rolled 65>>30225312Have we gotten into the AI room yet or is it still on lockdown?
Rolled 64>>30225531>>30225444>>30225371And EDE says to himself "Dammit, now where are THOSE notes.

The first such substance we have encountered for our facility. What this means or could turn into is unknown. One when revealed to the presence of psi will grow, while another sample merely glows.

Rolled 81>>30225924> basic 1: send omnitri to explore the tunnels>continue research on the crystals
Rolled 45>>30225924HAHA!!!Oh wait, oh god no this is terrible...we were already trying to jump into psionics headfirst earlier, what will we do now?Anyway, can we talk to the OmniTri and see if they'd like either of the new mods we've developed?>Basic 1Research ways to enhance the subdermal plating's defensive benefits, perhaps use some sort of electroactive polymer and have ghosts activate appropriate portions to defend against attack? Or whatever they feel is best, they're the scientists.>ResearchContinue research into the crystals. Let's try and get information on what the other types do.
Rolled 20>>30225924Maybe we should try and access the AI, maybe he has some research info in there.
Rolled 42>>30226063It's possible, but it'd be [REDACTED]. So we still need better (see: black/god tier) hacking abilities to get it.
Rolled 36>>30226090We do have the skill that lets us hack every thing from our hero.
>>30226135Hmm, good point..I'd still rather have some more firepower to use before we try though, because opening up the AI core can go VERY badly if it goes badly.
Rolled 60>>30226090We could still gain some knowledge by opening the full capacity of the vault/lab.
>>30225924Does OmniTri want any of our implants? (Free of charge...well we could maybe do with some monsters and/or zombies and/or human test subjects)
does nobody want to see where the tunnels go or if it could produce any allies/ trade options, we might be able to trade for knowledge instead of reinventing the wheel
Rolled 3>>30226162Yeah we will need to be ready for anything. We are getting there we armor and healing. Now weapons. We should train with the ones we got now that we have ammo.
>>30226238We still have very few weapons, so I'd rather not check them out yet.
Rolled 61>>30226191They claim to have their own and thus don't need any.
>>30226244Ehh, scientists will never be fighters and I'd rather not burn ammo (I'm fine with enhancing them, but training them is ehh with me. You can vend developed enhancements, not trained scientist-fighters though).Also, don't forget that we need to apply those upgrades to ourselves.
>>30226273Really? Jeeze.Is there anything we can pay them with to acquire victi-err, subjects for us?
>>30226261thats why we should send omnitri, they had the firepower to clear out the vault I feel they would survive an exploration trip to the tunnels
Rolled 54>>30226295True we are scientist. But our ghost can pass some skill on to other people. So getting a few good at it can help go a long way.
>>30226326They might not be willing to though. Protection doesn't mean they'll be our fetchers.
Rolled 36>>30225924OmniTri came by earlier and handed us some material for the cloning facility they say its not much but it should be enough to get it properly operational again. After that the stuff we need next wont be quite so difficult to acquire.
>>30226487What exactly do we need after that? More importantly, where can it be found?
Rolled 47>>30226487Sweet do we know what we need or do we have vague idea?
Rolled 20>Basic 1Get the cloning facility operational again (and enhance if that's possible I suppose)>ResearchImprove the defensive qualities of the sub-dermal armor, as per these suggestions >>30226062 they should also see if there's any way they can combine them with the medical implants for some synergy.
Rolled 29>>30226594I guess ill support this
>>30225924Do we want to try and keep our resources above ten so we have a stock if something bad happens?
Rolled 81>>30226569You have a vague idea but that is it.>>30226540Just the more basic items is required now.
>>30226716Aah, like biomass and stuff?
Rolled 62>>30226716Can we make the more basic stuff?
Rolled 45>>30226756no. At least not right now anyway.>>30226741Pretty much the stuff is pretty basic but due to certain limitations placed on even before the Fall and now after the fall it isn't nearly so easy to get.>>30226714That is up to you.
>>30226594>>30226716I would like to throw the idea that we use the psi sensitive crystals as a power level tester and test our population for who our most psionicly powerful person is and get them the training they need to be a hero.We could even host a competition to see who can innovate in the most fields in a turn or two.Let's find our hidden heros.
Rolled 70>>30226845Hmm, so we can't make it right now. With research could we make it?If so then I vote for this >>30226594 but Basic 1 is "Research manufacturing equipment for the cloning facility...stuff"Otherwise, this >>30226062
Rolled 80>>30226896MAD science roll for this
>>30226845Do we have said pieces? And I know that I was asking for people opinion in the subject.
Rolled 23>>30226896We can't make heroes, remember? I'd be down for this, but maybe next turn. All those "Iz you a ____ git?" contests with the bandits were superr fun, after all.Of course, if this is a crit then I'll gladly initiate a competition to see who can advance our technology(ies) furthest fastest.>>30226907That's not a mad science action.
Rolled 69>>30226933a few of them but not even enough to really jury rig something up. Anyway still awaiting consensus.
>>30226966I would call it MAD science when you use the crystals to test the population
>>30227063Thing is, we don't want the bonuses/penalties/risks associated with a MAD action applied to testing the population with crystals.
Rolled 97What is consensus?
Rolled 11>>30227342Basic 1: help the doctorResearch 1: research crystals with doctor.
Rolled 64>>30227382I can back that.
Rolled 55>>30227477me too
>>30227342I guess we could try and look for the parts in the ski lodge but that will take some time due to probably having to clear out the zombies or we could work on getting the AI up an running.
Rolled 88>>30227342I, personally, think>Basic 1Improve the armor>ResearchResearch the crystals
Rolled 7>>30227511Would an AI be ok with our ghosts?
>>30227511Why would a ski lodge have parts to a cloning array?
Rolled 24>>30227382uh help the doctor good doctor plan his meticulous vengeance against Dr. Volk that involves dolls, prayers, and desperate searching to see if he survived or not so vengeance may be taken? Sure that wont be a problem...According to the good doctor there are 5 different types we know of only two. 1 glows in the presence of psi2 grows in the presence of psi3 unknown investigation seems to indicate that it too interacts with psi.

>>30227664>>30227695Is Skelly still alive? We said to not kill him.
Rolled 76well if we are gearing up for war we may as well look into making weapons.Basic 1: Research: using the glowing crystal to produce a psi powered laserFree Research: Using the growing crystals to make a growable walls, or crystal spikes that may be used as projectiles.of course start these experiments in the small scale in a controled psi lab environment
>>30227824Whoa whoa whoa>Use the glowing crystal to make a psi powered laserYou're jumping waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy far ahead of ourselves there.>Using the growing crystals make growable walls or crystal spikes to be used as projectilesJesus man, there's no way either of those things is happening, the second one is even more far-fetched
Rolled 29>>30227814He is.
Rolled 85>>30227900Did he get his chew toy?
>>30227867this thread is going nowhere at the speed of light and everyone else is really into getting us combat ready, so yea, why not, we are cyborgs aren't we, you telling be we cant manage a tube with a mirror at one end, and a polarize two way mirror at the other. for the growing crystal that amounts to seeing how fast we can make it grow and testing how hard it is, simple science shit that normal people manage in their garage.
Rolled 75>>30227923The other zombie?>>30227941Its the peace before the storm. As usually I would be constantly throwing hurdles i have already hinted at stuff to come.
>>30227941Not him, but from what we encountered Psi-Crystals grow at a notoriously slow rate.Even a living hero made of crystal and several nat100's could barely make a garden of the stuff near end game
>>30227964What's Skelly and Implantee been up to lately?
Rolled 26>>30227964No for Skelly.I kind of want to be like the doctor from day of the dead with him. How he would feed and be nice. slowly training him how to do things.
>>30227964did we ever kill that one anti-psyker zombie that we used to test skelly or did we kill him after?
>>30227941Psy-Crystals grow at a stupidly slow rate and are incredibly difficult to use (let alone discover how to use).
>>30227995Well, we do know how NOT to use them.Any sort of field or emmiter device is a big one.Also Railguns
>>30228036aw damn i was gonna suggest railguns next
>>30228036We don't talk about the-weapon-that-must-not-be-named.
>>30228059Nope, no railguns allowed in EDE's c.Unless we magic some up with gunsmithing stations.
Rolled 50>>30227993I think you did indeed kill him.>>30227978Skelly is acting oddly for a zombie. As in it seems to be completely still before going through periods of pacing and scrawling with purpose along random surfaces.>>30228061Next time make sure your specialty is more fitting for it and you have the stuff set up.
Rolled 98>>30228075an advanced enough gunsmithing stations and yeah I will concede on it.
>>30228077We had an energy megacorp for such a weapon, and you specifically said that sort of technology was highly guarded and kept secret.
Rolled 77>>30228077Hmm. He's not writing anything legible I presume?>Basic 1Outfit everyone with the medical implants and dermal armor.>ResearchCheck on Skelly. See what he's writing. Maybe try to psychically communicate with him or re-hack his brain. Whatever Dr. Kaharr thinks is best.
Rolled 7>>30228102Doesn't mean you can't figure out. Railgun weaponry is in three rough categoriesNavalTanksSuper Solder Obviously the lower you go the harder it is to pull it off.

Rolled 52>>30228126We do not know.medical implants and dermal armor have been produced. They will be able to be equipped next turn.It seems what he is writing is in fact legible...though it does seem to some times go off on random tangents or become crude pics/drawings.

>>30228433no one liked my lazer idea. maybe we could make some automated turrets and hook them up to the hub with the remote hub relays we made a while back
>>30228500A Psi-Beam gun is good and feasible, we've done it before, but we don't have the research or facilities for it yet.
>>30228500just build them to accept the guns that we have currently, this way we can make use of the whole stock even if we have more guns than people.
>>30228520what facilities are we missing beyond the Psi lab
Rolled 72>>30228500I like the idea of turrets. Put them in the ceiling.
We have a geothermal plant.We could try collecting natural gas as a fuel source for flamethrowers.
>>30228433Let's toss around weapon ideas.Railguns, reverse engineering the military weaponry, and psi-crystal based stuff is out for various reasons and because they'd take too long. Psionics is a viable path to take.Something that would take advantage of our borg and/or bioborg capabilities.Something that would take advantage of our mind-control interfaces.Something that would bring the monsters down on the zombies (anyone noticed that whenever the zombies try to make a move on us the monsters get all riled up and hit us hard? I have. Maybe the Shadows are being guardian angels).Assets list:Ore VeinsAquiferFuel DepositsAdvanced Recycling CenterWaste DumpsGX 5 RiflesOmicron Body ArmorPulse Rounds+GrenadesMedi-GelJust a minute more.
Rolled 83>>30228433voting for this and developing turrets
>>30228537Crystal Research, and better Psykers. Possibly a hero or mini hero with psionic capbailities who could aid in that sort of research.Hmm, a contest was usually a good way to look for talent among us when we played bandits. We could try and sort out who has the best latent psionic abilities through a series of tests.
>>30228538Turrets only do so much, that's not the answer to the coming crisis I assure you. We need something bigger and better than turrets.Anyone want to try making behemoth borgs? Or hybridizing bioborg and borg tech to make something unholy?
Rolled 100>>30228547I think we should make turrets for the short term defense, and then go maybe psionics and powersuits?
Borg Ants anyone?Kharr would love to stick it in Richards face by proving Ants > Spiders and he IS borg specialized.They'd help with other stuff after this is over, like resource gathering, patrol, ect.
Rolled 37>Basic 1Equip the implants (medical and dermal armor)>Mad ScienceTry to create a chromeborg+bioborg hybrid that specializes in combat abilities. Specifically, resilience and speed.
Rolled 53>>30228562well we can grow something(could take a while. Plus to train), Train in weapon use or have computers fight for us. I do like the idea of behemoth borgs. But time.
>>30228590we can use this right?
Rolled 69>>30228590I guess we're making turrets.Nope :/ Not directly linked.
>>30228547Going back on the growing crystals maybe after so long of an exposer that they will grow enough to make ammo out of them.
Rolled 23>>30228609no it was a discussion roll.
>>30228593If they have as much versatility as the borgspiders did the line it'd be a good investment to make. I'm not entirely sure if that'd come into fruition in time to deal with what we're gonna face, but then again Richard managed to work on it with less time during an actual invasion to our base.
>>30228632last time we started making robots, we were told we didnt have the facilities.
>>30228651Were those full on robots or borgs?I'm not entirely sure where borgInsects fall on that line, because Richard was able to make them without robot facilities.
>>30228676I guess they were robots as apposed to borgs. how far can we augment the size and shape of a borg with what we have on hand
>>30228651These are different, that being said we were only able to make self-replicating borgspiders because we had Richard AND Clora. So I don't that it's possible for us here any time soon.How about we invest into making...I don't know, some sort of unorthodox implant-weapon like metal tentacles. Alternatively, look into weaponized psionics...but I don't think we could complete those in time.
>>30228613What type of turrets are we making?Also do we have any training with firearms?
>>30228707>How about we invest into making...I don't know, some sort of unorthodox implant-weapon like metal tentacles.Hey there's something.Like something the size of a grenade launched at a zombie, which releases tentacles controlled by ghosts that burrow into the vital organs and brain.It could in theory act like a small dog sized insect and leap onto other zombies and try to burrow into them as well.They wouldn't be able to replicate, but they could be cost effective to produce.
>>30228756turrets that can be controlled by the hub, that we can just stick guns that we already have into, that way if we get better guns we can just swap them out.
>>30228768That's a great idea, but not what we need right now I think.If we do something like that, maybe we can make it so we can launch it at a big monster and control it's brain electronically instead of psionically (which has problems in the past)
>>30228768Hmm. That seems to be a bit on the robotics side of things...but I like it. How can we do that with borg/bioborg tech?>>30228622EDE, is the cloning facility capable of churning out dogs?
>>30228768I like the way you think. next turn after the turrets. maybe just make them stored in a borg, like as a backpack, and then they can be activated and then controlled with psionics
Rolled 10>>30228756Pretty sure we don't have any training.
Rolled 56>>30228831Eh. Turrets are **really** not the answer here. I assure you.>Basic 1Equip the dermal armor and medical implants.>Mad ScienceAttempt to develop some tentacle augs we can equip to enhance our combat abilities. Preferably they'd be stabby and grabby.
Rolled 68>>30228819uh if it had a sample yes. Current samples mostly involve such things as spare parts and so on.>>30228852The best you have is security training and countermeasures in the case of a containment breach ect.
>>30228819>How can we do that with borg/bioborg tech?Rather than wires, we could use fleshy nervous systems to control the tentacles (not exactly long lasting, but these are meant to be used shortly after production).A micro brain to facilitate ghost control could also be grown, which could be very small to suit only the most rudimentary tentacle controls instead of electronic.
Rolled 4>>30228876Tentacles haven't really not been productive before, so yeah why not.Voting
>>30228779Good very versatile, I like it.
Rolled 14>>30228876k ill vote for this, we should consider making projectile sea urchin versions as well
>>30228912>>30228831>>30228779>>30228756Turrets? It's like they've never heard of Aduro.
Rolled 83>>30228907Wow, that's some odd grammar bro. You should catch some sleep.>>30228876Let's go for it. Mad Science roll.
>>30228946I haven't care to explain?
>>30228946Ive only started reading the archives today
>>30228963>>30228964We were a megacorp and we happened upon a fortune. We spent a significant chunk of that fortune on extremely good turrets on our base, on 4 Mobile Bases, and on a Mobile Fortress...and it wasn't enough.
>>30228989To be fair, there's very litty you can do when a pot of gold lands in your lap as you are surrounded by endless bandits and monsters living under your feetand fucking Lurklasshole scum
Rolled 4>>30229008And without mythical railgun technologies.>>30228876Let's, everything we've ever encountered with tentacles has been pretty nasty...I think.
>>30228907>>30229173>Dub linked 4'sUh oh. . .
>>30229213Shiiiit didn't notice.
>>30229213They're not linked. It would only maybe matter if they were both for the Mad Science action anyway, but they're not either of those things.
Rolled 36I want to see what happens when we try to talk with Skelly.
Rolled 50>>30229213Its fine doesn't count.Anyway what is consensus?
It'll be interesting to see how long it takes to make tentacle-limbs.
Rolled 20>>30228876Dermal armor and medical implants have been placed.old tentacle and tendral augs were brought up and we have begun work. There are a number of different paths that we can use but currently we only have the most basic version.>>Turn 23>>>>>A. Scavenge for food>>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>>C.

>>30229350Think of the potential uses.Silent running and wall/ceiling climbing and increased jump ability.Electro Tentacles, Acid/poison/stun Spewing Glands, a gun in teach tentacle for maximum Dakka
>>30229357What are the different paths we can use?How do you guys feel about electrified blades on the tentacles? How about we craft some sort of bio-mod that makes them secrete poison too?Ideas?
Rolled 45>>30229357>basic 1:equip basic tentacle augs>research: Bioborg tentacles
>>30229357Maybe we can implant them in the wall and use them as a static defense. Also try to find a way to funnel the zombies.
>>30229420Let's not equip tentacle augs until we get some more advanced versions. No need to jump the gun.Also, it saves resources and also upgrades are often more tedious to do than implantations.
Rolled 67>>30229389I was thinking bio > poision or acid or parasites or something
>>30229440k so research bio tentacles and do what with basic action?
Rolled 79>>30229389well got shooty, choppy, grabby, punchy, ect.>>30229425That will require some engineering and modification.>>30229357NewsZombie numbers are increasing.Monsters seem to be becoming leery of the ski resort.
>>30229357Okay, I'm going to field a wild guess here and say:Tentacles: Doctor Octopus style things, probably mounted on the back. Strong and durable, not terribly versatile by themselves but can be equipped with a wide variety of devices.Tendrils: Lots of little, fibrous...tendrils. Mounted who knows where, can form into various shapes for different purposes, weaker than tentacles, aren't really suitable for mounting equipment on due to being lots of really small things.
>>30229485Oookay.Who says we should kill Skelly? I'm leaning towards killing Skelly. By the way, would it really require an action to toss him pens+paper and food?
I've watched enough hentia to know where this civ is going.
>>30229385>>30229389>>30229485If we manage to get them to be able to support a person hanging from the ceiling, we can lure zombies into a large room and fire at them from high up.It won't hold them out forever, but such tactics would help greatly.>>30229516Ah, but have you read the Bandit Quest? That train has been there already
>>30229493yes glorious anon yes!
Rolled 87>>30229516Soon after we become Lovecraft-en Horrors.
>>30229485Does it take an action to toss Skelly food and writing materials?
>>30229485Can we combine choppy and grabby tentacles?Also, can we/would it help to try and upgrade processing power in our implants?
>>30229552although im looking at bio tentacles that can be used to spread hub connected (for the loyalty, and the fail safety) nanobots that turn out enemies into goo
>>30229588We're not going to get goo-ifying nanobots for a very long time, I promise. Also...I think that biotentacles (while valuable) would be a lot more resource intensive and difficult to develop.
>>30229588>hub connectedOr rather, ghost controlled.But I see what you mean.Nanites aren't something to be trifled with though, from past example. Not only are they a pain in the ass to fix if something goes wrong, they have a thirst for hero blood.
Rolled 98>>30229505with enough votes certainly.>>30229516Oh anon you have such low standards. >>30229588As a warning bio is quite complicated and you do not have any special bonuses for it.>>30229577Yes you can but it takes time.It could help.
>>30229588Just stick I the metal ones for now mount guns and blades and bludgeoning stuff on them.
>>30229357>Basic 1Attempt to improve our tentacular augments generally, make sure they're easy to use and that ghosts can control them if needbe too.>ResearchAttempt to combine Stabby/Choppy and Grabby tentacle paths together.Corollary: Give Skelly some food and writing materials.
>>30229622I am but a simple man I need not much to be pleased. Like>>30229619Said we don't have nanobots yet so there is no need to develop that kind of stuff yet we need to deal with the problem at hand.Can we get through to Skelly when we talk to him? Also general consensus on what to do with Skelly?
>>30229619was just thinking, seeing as how we all have the nanite repair systems in us already i thought how much more wrong could it go.
Rolled 7>>30229701Oops....Guys, I've been having the worst anxiety lately.
>>30229709Also we don't need all the labs we can salvage some in dire times of need for quick resources.
>>30229722*phew* My anxiety is caused by worry that I'm going to roll a 1 on a very important set of actions.
Rolled 93>>30229722For what is to come or the roll you just got?
>>30229701lets attempt to create stabby/choppy and grabby tentacles before we try to combine them, its a whole lot of things to do in one research turn
Rolled 19>>30229736never mind lets do it all at once voting for >>30229701
>>30229744Well, I meant create stabby/choppy/grabby tentacles. Stabby/Choppy being basically the same thing, and grabby being something that tentacles simply ought to be able to do.The reason shooty is excluded is because we can hold guns in our hands.
Rolled 44>>30229701Well first off they sure as hell are not easy to use and have bugs out ass. Its best not to get into how ghosts deal with the things. Suffice to say it is hard to determine who hates each other more.combination research failed pretty fucking miserably. Our forces for whatever reason were having massive problems even beyond the trickiness of fusion. >>Turn 24>>>>>A. Scavenge for food>>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>>C.

Rolled 10>>30229736Were you voting for the actions with that roll? :D>>30229701
Rolled 31>>30229837>Basic 1Keep at it.>ResearchKeep at it.Unless other people have better ideas.I encourage people to remember that our greatest achievements have come when we drove on despite resistance and the long-term nature of the projects. Like the Spiderborgs, and the Tectus.
Rolled 25>>30229837this would be so much easier with the specialty in biology as well. I could come up with so many things to try
>>30229839Won't matter it wasn't linked.
Rolled 94>>30229862rolling to continue
Rolled 79>>30229868We'll probably pick up some biological expertise eventually. If we're impossibly lucky we'll get a friendly brood mother.
Rolled 33>>30229868You have no IDEA how much I dread the day when something like mutants come up again.
Rolled 84>>30229862Let's get the gear working so it doesn't cause problems.
Rolled 12>>30229839If i said yes would it count? Lol, But yeah i was cool with what you pick so i left it like that.>>30229837So why no food for Skelly and writing material?
Rolled 1>>30229889You were unbelievably lucky to get one in the first place. I had that one stashed in there for quite some time plus some of dem rolls...
Rolled 6>>30229862Voting>>30229906Discussion, thank god
>>30229915Oh god, the Wintadooms! Pity the Arms Master got ripped to pieces.
Rolled 39>>30229890I kinda want to try something that I haven't heard stories about maybe paramilitary, cultists, and the basic survivors.
>>30229935Doesn't matter if it's discussion if EDE rolls it...>>30229936And let's not forget the possessed, pyromaniac wintadooms.
>>30229890I was close to getting us to play mutants instead of cyborgs, next time I will not fail
>>30229947Our most recent Civilization were the paramilitary bandits. They were pretty damn successful too.>>30229980Mutants are actually an extremely popular choice. People would've went for you, but we've been trying to play as this particular Civ for quite a while now.
Rolled 41>>30229906I uh guess Dice Goddess god bored at this slow pace very well then bitch its on now(even though I know I will lose horribly). WARNING Bandit forces detected.WARNING WARNINGZombie hive has gone into overdrive.Zombie hordes have arrived at the ski resort.WARNING WARNING OVERWHELMING MONSTER MAYHEM EVENT DETECTED.WARNING WARNING WARNING>>30229902Skelly writes down certain messages clearly meant for us they state.They know you know? For a little while they couldn't feel anything until next thing you know they could. After that there are your former comrades...apparently their even more fucked up then expected. Their coming for you by the way. Should of given them mercy. That sorta thing has a bad habit of biting you on the ass when it comes to zombies...The rest of the paper was used mad scrawlings, jabbering, and pictures.
>>30230009Is Mat still around? We would like to donate some more tech for something, anything.
Rolled 65>>30229995But like military remnants I should have said, you know not the dick ass bandit like moral soldiers type.
>>30221345Is that a sherman in the background?
>>30230038White Knight is VERY difficult to pull off in this setting. Trust us.
>>30230055Looks like it. Could be a Charlie or a Bradley though.
Rolled 55>>30230009Sheeeet the reckoning has arrived prepare to have to think out every trade off and opportunity cost for each action. For the ride that never ends... has just begun.
>>30230035mat is just the info specialist from omnitri, i got out voted on cutting deals with the shadowy group
Rolled 12>>30230009Well some one said it a long time ago we should have got them back/killed them when we had a chance.
Rolled 29>>30230035He is that one is always around. At least when he is not bothering the captain or watching Skelly.>>30230067Hey to be fair that time you fuckers had me utterly convinced you wanted nightmare mode deluxe and all my players were hardcore masochists with the line up you selected. >>30230081Nope a second 100 saw to it you had deals with both. Surprised you haven't figured out what the additional bonuses were.
>>30230081You haven't read the archive have you? We have deals with them both because of a conveniently gotten 100.Mat is the representative of the Shadows.Captain Dulga is the commander of the OmniTri forces.
>>30230009>>30230094Any update on the tentacles and such?
Rolled 69>>30230067Ehh true it would just be bandit civ 2 electric bongaloo if you didn't at least set up a line that is "do not cross unless you are completely sure you have to".
Rolled 57>>30230148many paramilitary forces either end up REALLY fucking hating bandits or becoming them.>>30230139Ah I had thought consensus hadn't been achieved very well then.
>>30230176It already had...so you shouldn't count any time against us for the special event.
Rolled 7>>30229862Well we have cybers fixed and working just fine. The ghosts have also figured things out mostly...they do however complain that they are lacking in the right hardware to do so effectively.Meanwhile a combination frame has been developed. It is capable of holding two different designs effectively without causing problems. You can even choose two of the same to allow overlap.>>Turn 25>>>>>A. Scavenge for food>>>>>B.

>>30230207Hmm. Well.Ask Mat if he can do anything for us or has recommended courses of action.Ask Captain Dulga if he can do anything for us/has recommended courses of action.
Rolled 76>>30230176I am okay with hating bandits, if that is the way we choose, I just like the challenge of trying to help and not fuck over everyone we come by. I know it sounds white knighty I just think I am bored with all the edginess.>>30229980Just remembered your the bio guy, that would be a very interesting mutant civ.
>>30230207anyone think it would be a good idea to make a "tentacle grenade," just toss it out in a group of enemies and and then tentacles just go wild and wreck shit.
Rolled 2>>30230176On another note it can be pretty tricky in my civs to not end up going evil if looking them as a whole is anything to go by. You guys have managed to play some seriously evil fucks hopefully the new guys might become a good influence(which is sorely needed). >>30230207ALERTFor some reason the zombies are congregating around our vault entrance...and have begun to spew forth fluids, tear odd zombies part sprawling their entrails everywhere and more. Some of the zombies are even attaching themselves to walls and ceilings before causing themselves to explode and such. The reason is unkown.WARNINGOVERWHELMING Monster Mayhem is continuing to be in affect and seems to be heading straight towards us.
>>30230258I don't see how that would work.>>30230260We, uhh, need this answered ASAP >>30230254
Rolled 40>>30230260Strap in, keep your arms and legs in the vehicle, and bet ready for the ride is about to begin.
>>30230260Is there any way to ask Skelly what he means by "Mercy" for "them"?
>>30230283just combine the old remote ghost control interface, with the tentacles attached to a power core/ processor/ interface unit, like a robot attack dog, with tentacles.
>>30230308yea we should ask skelly if he can tell us if there is a way to sooth the zombie hoards, in addition to talking to Mat and the captain.
Rolled 4>>30230308Killing them would have been mercy as living life as a zombie enthrall we by the 5 is terrible. I assume that is what he means
>>30230315It'd take more development than that. Also, it's a robot. And we don't have production facilities...and that's not a god-tier robot so it doesn't mesh well with our capabilities.
>>30230344well unless someone has a better plan for this turns research i dont see the harm in trying...
Rolled 96>>30230260Well shit. Hope we have anti acid stuff.
Rolled 18>>30230254>Mat...So you did you piss off? I mean I know our guys noted that those fallen of yours were nasty and even teh zombie mentioned. Sounds like you are hiding some stuff that is going to bite you on the ass.>Captain DulgaDig in and prepare to hold out things are going to get REAL ugly REAL quick.>>30230344All you do is you get a take a penalty for jury rigging cybernetics for it and lose out on some of your bonuses.
>>30230384We also don't do the whole "manufacturing" thing well, and those robots aren't meant to be survivable.Alright guys. Execute our zombies? I'm saying execute the zombies.
Rolled 89>>30230384Maybe we could try and give them back Skelly?
>>30230380good point should we work on acid proofing dermal implants?
Rolled 64>>30230412I think what is happening is our dead bros from out side. Keep what they know and what to get back us or get back in side. That or a zombie hero went this is some get stuff lets get more.
Rolled 1>>30230448at us*
Rolled 88>>30230463Could prove very useful.
>>30230412should we write "what should we do?" on a piece of paper and give it to skelly and see what he does with it?
>>30230463Modding our dermal implants to be generally nonreactive indeed might prove useful. >>30230493Sure, why not?
>>30230493Wouldn't hurt to try.
Rolled 19>>30230503We really need to be able to fight as well.
>>30230466Jeeze man. You're like, our Nat 1 sinkhole.
>>30230512alright lets do that. (it doesnt cost us an action point does it, like talking to mat or the captain)
Rolled 58>>30230493Kill them before they kill you...unless you wish to offer them company.>>30230521Don't rub it in damn it it ruins the best parts...
>>30230520Yeah, I'd say manufacturing and equipping the tentacles are more important than modding the armor.
>>30230534the nat 1 was a discussion so it doesn't count right?
Rolled 54>>30230521lol Yeah my rolls are weird. Like the 100 then the 1 right after.
>>30230534Offer them company?Can't tell if that means "unless you want to get turned into zombies" or if it means we should build them a hub or borgify them or something.
Rolled 69>>30230551yes, so stop rubbing it in damn it.
>>30230553ask him what he means by offer them company?
>>30230569That's not how EDE works...but let's go ahead.
>>30230537but If we dont mode the our augs to be nonreactive, then they will start to dissolve when we use them to attack, cause i assume they will get covered in zombie gore
Rolled 26>>30230569>SkellyWhat I could of mean could be many things. I figured it would of figured it out by now to feel what one feels...trapped screaming a rotting corpse forced to witness atrocities.
>>30230582yea fingers crossed
>>30230623Aah, we need to kill the zombies' ghosts. They've gone insane and are likely very powerfully psionic by now too.
Rolled 12I say we pull something from the dead space thread and make a micro weave gun. Cook every thing.
>>30230623ask skelly if he would be willing to negotiate with the zombies for us, if they can be negotiated with, offer to research a way to try to give them back their free will and make them feel less "trapped"

Then EDE rolled another 1, now monsters/zombies are errwhere below the surface too.We're talking to the zombies. (We think)
Rolled 38>>30230990The ride never ends.
>>30231010>>30230996How are the Monsters reacting to the zombies?If it's evident they will overwhelm them, we could just that as a bargaining chip.The Ghoul alliance was a sucess due to our ability to proove the Ghouls we could supply food to them via cracking open enemy bases.If we can provide food to the zombies by helping them down monsters, that seems like a good shot at getting on the right foot.
>>30231010I get your point but we cant under shoot if we never get the chance to shoot in the first place
>>30230891>>30230801Any descriptions of the tunnel threats?Would it be possible to evac+seal a level and redirect the tunnel threats out towards the surface threats?
>>30231025The zombies have opened our front door wide, but aren't going in. They seem to be allowing the ULTRA MEGA MONSTER MAYHEM MEIN GOTT THE SWAMP NEVER KNEW ANYTHING LIKE THIS to use it to enter our base.As for tunnels, we have no idea what's coming from down there.
Rolled 68>>30231031I remember there was a exit. But our front door is open.
So if the monsters hit us we're straight up dead.
Rolled 68>>30231031Tunnel threats seem to be zombies. The railway meanwhile is harboring monsters. You could try.>>30231025Turns out zombies slinked away after opening our door thus allowing the monsters an easy way in.
Rolled 91>>30231050I hinted heavily and there is ALWAYS A WAY TRICK IS FINDING IT(seriously though this time around you got some real fun shit to play with).
>>30231070Hmm. Yes, the trick is, indeed, finding it.
>>30231010>>30231056>You're promising a bit much there, buddy...You'll never know till you give us a chance.Lemme ask you something, what do you expect to gain from this?Even supposing there is anything left of us after the monsters are done, unlikely, will nibling at our corpses bring you anymore than a few days, maybe hours of satisfaction.There's an endless buffet of monsters out there, but it's the devils buffet. You have to kill what you can eat. We can help you get that meal on your plates.Tell me, do you know of ANYONE else who is willing to feed zombies? Much less talk to you as we are conversing.
>>30231070is zombie response text incoming or should I keep talking if I hope to get a response.
Rolled 34We got shadow people backing us. Let us become hidden.
Rolled 94>>30231089"Plenty are willing to feed zombies and monsters especially those ones tend to be very good eating.">>30231119Which post is meant for zombies?
Rolled 46>>30231149I don't fully remember the map. But i think we could seal a big chunk of the base and go there. We got Ai room. Water ways, But no clue where they go.
If things get extra desperate, I suggest beaking into the locked AI room and see if a Deus Ex Machina comes flying out
Rolled 77>>30230977"Why should I say you when I already have of what is most valuable too me that you could provide?>MatYou best be very careful and there ARE other options...but I don't know how well you would like them.>Dr. KaharrAs long as I get payback against Dr. Volk then I WILL BE FINE.Heh sometimes things are not as they seem or worth the price you know.Not when it comes to vengeance Mat not when it comes to vengeance against Smug Evil Assholes.
>>30231175Looking back on it...that's a terrible idea. >>30231196I suggest breaking into the AI room right now actually. We ARE extra desperate.>>30231152Would the OmniTri troops like any Zombie Slayer arms?
>>30231152>"Plenty are willing to feed zombies and monsters especially, those ones tend to be very good eating."Ah, so we've established you're willing to accept business partners and now the issue is haggling a price.As I said earlier, I really don't see how you're going to benefit from Monsters not even leaving the bones of us, when you're still going to have to hunt to eat them anyway. As opposed to us helping you gather more monsters than you could get alone, and being a recurring action.
Rolled 22>>30231196One thought was to see if Captain Dulga from OmniTri forces would let us stay at their place but can't use the tunnels now. >>30231216Matt if you don't mind do go on.
>>30231216Hmm, it has our psi-tech. I think.
Rolled 40>>30231228There are already so many monsters and we already have our ways to hunt I do not see what you are trying to offer.
>>30231228Food is obviously not the motivator for this guy.
>>30231216(to the zombies)"if you let the monsters destroy us, what will you get but a temporary respite from the hunger that plagues you, but with time we may be able to offer you more permanent solution. Are you willing to take the chance to quell that pain for an eternity?"
>>30231250True, I'm wondering just what they are trying to gain from letting in the monsters into our vault anway.It can't be to eat us, because nothing would be left.Can't be to fatten up the monsters, cause their a plenty.Shelter? Probably not.What DO they get out of this?
Rolled 98>Basic 1Equip the Zombie Slayer augs (unless they're operating independently for some...reason)>ResearchPrepare The Hub to hack into the AI core, and then defend itself from possible counterattack.
Rolled 44>>30231235>MatWell for one who have shield 5 but...considering your current predicament I would hate to see their price tag. Or you could throw your lot in with ours...of course other groups might offer a similar deal good luck finding them much less with a similar deal.>>30231258Hunger is a tool.
>>30231267if negotiations fail I will certainly support you in this
Rolled 64>>30231267If the Zombie Slayer augs are operating independently then...apply the Nonreactive (really need a name for that) to our armor and the augs.
>>30231265Why not ask them?>>30231280>>30231240Alright, maybe you don't see what we can offer but I don't see what you gain.Why all this? We won't feed you in the belly of monsters. You wouldn't need to fatten them up if you say their plentiful. What are you getting out of all this?
>>30231280(to the zombies again)"Is it truly a tool, or is it becoming your prison?"
Rolled 69>>30231294The monster are our main problem. Ether we some how reseal the doors, fight or Get hidden real fast.
>>30231305>>30231265Vengeance? Elimination of a potential future threat? Access to our tech? Any number of things really.>>30231309Get off the food wagon, that's not the key to this conversation.>>30231310Or we pull a trump card from somewhere...we just need to look for where.
Rolled 61>>30231305I already have gotten want I personally wanted. My charges on the other hand is different story they want something and they plan to get it. >>30231309A tool my prison is of something else.
Rolled 17>>30231322Psi gems?
>>30231327(to the zombies)"and what could that prison be that we would better serve it dead than alive?"
>>30231327>My charges on the other hand is different story they want something and they plan to get it.Well whoop di damn do, it's probably our favorite corporate shadow company again.Unless we can convince them we have something to offer them than totallynotUmbraCorp can, I don't see anywhere these negotiations can go.
>>30231322I think there is something to be found in the locked down AI sectors
>>30231347Possibly, but how? We don't have many. Think that's what they're after?
>>30231356I'm unsure whether its charges are our zomborged comrades, or some faction in the monsters...or what.
Rolled 96>>30231356Not knowing Umbra Corp has competitionWhat makes you think their Umbra Corp anyway this is pretty obvious stuff. They tend to like sticking to the shadows a lot more.>>30231350It doesn't matter whether your alive or dead. If you did however serve that prison I assure I would destroy you personally.
Rolled 16>>30231366Over load them and force a growth. Is one path. Good chance but they would have had to know about it for a good amount of time. ( Dam you Skelly being a wire tap. )
>>30231366They're after what they're "charges" want them to be after. And their charges are able to offer them what they personally want.>>30231393"If you've got everything you want? Why serve your charges. They're offering you something you find valuable clearly."
>>30231404Eh. We could try overloading them with Psy but I doubt that'd be **enough** to get us out of this.
>>30231356was this a post by genie?
Rolled 68>>30231414Just thinking of what we could do with what we have. Mat's team would probably hurt us long term if we are not careful. But Ai or him would be the last fail back we have.
>>30231422nvm i was confused
Rolled 34>>30231409HAH they serve me not the other way around. At the moment I merely humoring them. I just find it most annoying that the damned zombie you modified managed to find me. How embarrassing...
>>30231438Hmm. That's interesting.I think our zomborged comrades may've taken over a hive's mind, but that this is the overmind we're talking to. It would give them motivation for wanting us dead (the ghosts being driven insane) and fits our observations at least slightly.
Rolled 79>>30231267rolling to crack the seal on the AI>>30231458I think he is talking about skelly, since we made contact through him
>>30231476if nothing else we can lock ourselves in that section and buy our selves a little extra time
Rolled 56>>30231491Move threw the air ducks to freedom. But what about the hub.
>>30231511what about the hub?
>>30231476Skelly is the one that found this thing, I doubt that Skelly is its "charges".
>>30231476are 3 rolls enough to begin this action?
>>30231527my guess is that the monsters are its charges, the overmind is humoring them, by opening the front door
Rolled 81>>30231518The ghost our are homies they live there we have to some how take it with us if we leave.
Rolled 39So giving up on negotiations when you had found few such tasty leads?
>>30231547no, just thinking while taking action, unless taking action will spoil negotiations.
>>30231540That would imply the monsters are fine with paying tribute and service to the zombies who are also hunting them and using them as a food source.If that were the case, it's a shame we couldn't open negotiations with the monsters and tell them about our anti-zombie technology. Then we'd find out what the zombies are offering the monsters.Also of note, perhaps we should look to the bandits if we can. They live here too and I doubt this monster incursion will do any good for them either.
Rolled 12>>30231560it may interfere with each other because turns are basically a certain amount of time.
>>30231575Good point. There aren't actually any bandits around these parts except for the very few ultra-elite groups...Actually, they might just be coming to loot our corpses.
>>30231581(to the zombies)"what do your charges offer you, that we cannot beat? also what is this prison, that we can do nothing to free you from?"
Rolled 69>>30231606"My charges payment to be has already been received I no longer care what happens as is it might prove better that you end here. This prison is the one I am trapped in as for freeing me...I have no idea not even the one who did this to me seemed to know a way to reverse it the mad bastard.
>>30231658(zombies)"The one who did this to you, could his name be Dr. Volk?"
>>30231658>The mad bastard.>There's a scientific monstrosity in those ruins over there.>So many monster strains even the finest pre-war...only broods would be able to...don't seem to be any around here.
>>30231658>This prison is the one I am trapped inCome now, you can be more specific than that.I'd certainly would be able to tell you in great detail whatever bars or chains kept me locked up, figuratively speaking.
>>30231680There's only one other mad bastard I know of who'd be able to imprison the zombiesbut these guys aren't doing the samba, so I doubt it's him
Rolled 15>>30231679Hm how do you know about Dr. Volk my...creator and former ACQUAINTANCE THAT BASTARD.>>30231680I admit nothing.>>30231683YOU try to be trapped within a SINGLEWEAK BODYIT is HELL.
>>30231699quickly fetch Dr. Hakarr maybe he can tell us something of import
>>30231699>My creator...Hmm. Not saying Richard couldn't have made something rival Clora'Zel's daughter. Just saying.
>>30231699"We have a bit of a professional grudge against the Doctor. Here, you might want to talk to our leader he explains it best."
>>30231699>YOU try to be trapped within a SINGLE>WEAK >BODY>IT is HELL.. . .do you have any idea who we are?We borgs were created specifically because of that.Our bodies were weak, so we made them stronger.Our minds were not content to a single body, so we ensured a piece ours could move in between bodies at will.The Body is NOT a limit to us, and that can be true for you as well if you let us.
>>30231699ps whats gonna happen if the thread gets pruned seeing as how we have been in autosage for a while.
Rolled 30>>30231734I am afraid borgs have limitations otherwise I would of done it oh so long ago.>>30231714>>30231731>Dr. HakarrAh of course yet ANOTHER one who has a grudge against Richard believe me I understand where your coming from.>>30231752I am tired as hell and need to call it quits. My writing is suffering and I can't do stuff justice that will show up soon.
>>30231772k its 5:10 AM here so i wont complain if you want to continue at a later date.
>>30231772Works perfectly for me. When will you resume?
Rolled 28>>30231772I know that exact feel.
Rolled 91>>30231787Next Tuesday as usual. On an interesting note I am planning to compile my system into a single format that I intend to post.
Rolled 35>>30231810That'd be spectacular. You might want to pastebin it though.
Rolled 47>>30231810That way even after i am gone my system and hopefully post apoc civs will continue on. I do need to test it on a fantasy format though I would like to see how it would work with that one of these days while I can still run.
>>30231825>That way even after i am goneThat will be a very sad day indeed
Rolled 50>>30231825That'd be a much grittier and realistic fantasy realm than most. I don't know how magic would mess with everything.
Rolled 77>>30231856I would imagine would translate into a roughly psionic format but would be much more common.>>30231836Two anons have already tried to mimic my civs so I am confident post apoc civs will continue on.
Rolled 12>>30231865You'd have to severely restrict its abilities somehow, because magic is far more game-breaking than psionics are. Materials for enchanting, for instance, would have to be about as rare as psionic crystals. On another note, who's the second anon? I was there for Strelok, but never saw a different one.
Rolled 60>>30231865My goal is to get my format down and possibly go over the older civs turn them into a ebook has had been suggested a few times.>>30231880The anon tried but was discouraged/panicked so it never led anywhere. Plus there are a few GMs lurking around trying it out as well.
Rolled 42>>30231880Of course, maybe we just haven't figured out how to use psionics yet, and that's why they're not as gamebreaking to us.
>>30231889Hmm, that's a pity. Well if you do that I might actually restart the ubermutants. I should've done what you're doing here in that last thread. Blech, I ruined the writing on that queen completely, among other things.
Rolled 74>>30231944hm and what was that exactly?
>>30231957Went to sleep so I could do justice to things.
Rolled 99>>30231972Ah I see I noticed its possible to get a second wind on occasion but its not wise to push it.
>>30231944>Well if you do that I might actually restart the ubermutants. looks like all that fluff pushing and those free tips that one day was for naugth.Oh well
>>30232023Shhhhh. They'll still be mostly valid. Things will just be a lot meaner.
Rolled 4>>30232023Problem is reviving a young quest is hard harder still if the QM in question is still unknown. Its why I pushed through with the Memor so I hard I knew I had to get over that initial hill.
Rolled 2>>30232023I wouldn't be so so sure that's the last time we hear of Dr. Mendel.>>30232043Anon's trying trying to push fluff helps the process along I imagine.
>>30232043Yeah, I'll give it one or two shots at restarting...and if they don't catch on I'll do another one.It was quite odd how everyone wanted some sort of nationality associated with their faction. Very odd indeed.More odd was the german-nazis that were mutants intent on assimilating genetic information from external sources.
Rolled 1>>30232072I've noticed a pattern of choosing races based on the bad guys of the previous civ.Aduro in response to Umbra.The Bandits to see what it's like being on the other side of a Bandit curbstomp.Yours specifically mentioned the Red Army as previous antagonists.
>>30232085Indeed it did. Pity you guys never found out about your past.
Rolled 14>>30232085Red Army are some scary badass mofos. Pity I was not able to give them much screen time.
>>30232099I'm sure that something as widespread and powerful as the Red Army has plenty of remnants around, and plenty of backups and safeguards so they can come back later.
>>30232099I really hope you didn't plop Vault 101 right on top of/next to Clora'Zel's hideout.
