Rolled 72 (1d100)Your caravan of computer components and spider-walkers deftly makes its way through the cracked streets and ruined megastructures of your city on their way to AlphaCorp's tower. It looms slightly shorter than the other towers in its cluster, which is not saying much, but is still quite some distance away.Meanwhile your researchers throw themselves into studying your vast samples of monster components, searching for applications in the Medicinal, Offensive, and Defensive sectors. The whirring of machines and mumbles of the researchers is constant day and night, creating a mild hubbub all throughout your base. It has been going on for quite some time with no end in sight...some of your members are actually beginning to worry, as the researchers' food and water rations pull up outside the doors of their facilities.All in all, things are surprisingly good for being a group of ratty survivors in the Post Apocalypse.

Rolled 32 (1d100)>>39597990>>>>>>>E. Explore in a direction/something.Let's try to find out what those steam pillars are before our shit gets wrecked again>>>>>>B. Try to improve the baseMaybe make it more comfortable or something?
Rolled 13 (1d100)>always late- i say we build, build like the wind.- design gyro copters (mad max style shouldnt be hard), we will retake the sky!- Construct barracks for residents. to increase comfort, for parties naturally.-
>>39597990Do we need to devote any further actions to the ongoing monster research?
>>39598192should be auto
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>39598183Apologies for that, but at least I'm /consistently/ late.>>39598183Due to critting on the research...your research elements are occupied, and you can't shift them from their focus.Every time someone tries talking to them they just get yelled at through the microphone.You can still perform research, but it won't be as effective.
Rolled 1 (1d100)Last thread we opened up that armory we purchased but never actually opened.-ICorp Garrison Armaments Package-ICorp Stealther Systems-ICorp Heavy Weapons Pack-ICorp IGC Armor CratesMy vote is to have Sgt. Gunny train our military forces in their usage.Likewise someone mentioned last thread we could improve our ammunition reserves by developing bullet production, something well within our reach as survivors/scavengers so that is my vote as well. It will allow us an additional bartering chip with caravans and will help us against monsters by letting troops use additional ammo freely.Basic 1Train with the new armory gearBasic 2Develop ammunition production
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>39598192It's going on its own for now, I'm not cruel enough to make you devote further actions to something like that when you only have 2 per turn.>>39598261Damn but the dice HATE you guys.>Crit detected>Train with the new armory gear.[LOCKED]>Develop ammunition production[LOCKED]

Rolled 63 (1d100)>>39598261fuck me. . .goddamit>>39598133>>39598183Crits aside, improving the living conditions in the base is a good idea, baracks and improved quarters.On the topic of Gyro Copters as survivors we aren't suited to jury rigging such as bandits might be, or design and manufacturing such as a corps might be.But, if we get enough supplies we can purchase the manufacturing and the technological capability to research and produce them from caravans and the like. It's unlikely we'll be efficient or effective developing/producing them on our own (though we do have a recent science/research upgrade which would be tremendously helpful)
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>39598261Blatant critfish
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>39598314Survivors are experts at jury rigging shit, actually. They can't pull the same shit off that bandits can, because they actually give a fuck about safety...but they're seriously expert at making shit work.They just can't /manufacture/ things from raw materials too well. Give a Survivor Engineer a couple old world cars, some biofuel, and time and he could make a copter out of it.Though flying machines are quite advanced, so it'd require quite a bit of time.

I COULD almost build one. we got this twice over.
>>39598458>>39598404NIce.I guess then our next goal should be to see if Alpha Corp can convert some raw materials we find into parts and pieces to supplement scavenged parts. We'll have a fleet of scout copters in no time!

>>39598570my dream is a fleet of hindlike gunship/troop transports flying around paramilitary style. lightning raids and missions from the sky , ...maybe some kinda blimp working as semi-permanent overwatch.
>>39598711Don't forget lots of artillery on our skyscrapers....and that we wouldn't be the only ones developing such tech, I suspect there are bandits out there who have the jump on us in this regard. They certainly do militarily
>>39598760guess what my SECOND goal plan was...
>>39598711Also fuck yeah, airships with big bombs and guns.God knows how we'll make something like that, but it'll be something to consider at a later date when we're bigger.Till then we'll have to improve our tech, manufacturing, resource gathering, and pop at every opportunity
>>39598760I'm not sure if they would. I mean, they're each a fighter and a half, but aircraft require a support systems and logistics that quite frankly seem beyond them.Speaking of which, we'll almost certainly need to massively ramp up our biodiesel production.
>>39598808>tfw I've found my lost twinYou're not the same anon who also suggested clearing out areas of terrain around the base either are you?>but aircraft require a support systems and logistics that quite frankly seem beyond them.Oh believe me, they have at least in the other OP's setting this quest is based on.Who needs logistics when you can raid and pillage anyway

Rolled 22 (1d100)>>39598282>Train with the new armory gear"...Hey uhh...hey Sarge."The massive bear of a man that is Drill Sergeant Granyon turned around to face your member. "What is it, /recruit/?

Now what is this about new equipment?""Sergeant, the ICorp armory that we acquired.

>>39598953We could have started as Paramilitary for that actually, though we'd lack the suvivor bonuses we'd be enjoying. I still support that idea.
just for clarity: a) do were represent the leadership perspective or the general populous? b) where is our camp situated? in a tower/group of towers, a street level building , a clearing surrounded by a chainlink fence, a concret fortifyed admin building?
>>39599031>a) do were represent the leadership perspective or the general populous?Whichever you want when you make a dialogue post.

Council wants to improve the ammunition manufacturing capabilities. I'm having a bit of trouble with it though...so many different shell types, you know?""Well, you know what'd help with that?""What?""Having examples of all of them right in front of you!""...There's no way you have that kind of sway with Gunny.""Just you watch, my friend.">Ammunition stash has been moved to Armament Production [Salvaged]
if we can control the immediate area, through clearing debre and opening line of sight, auto and manned firepower from the walls, arty upto a couple kliks, and general air/armored response we can then focus on projecting force throughout the surrounding areas and securing new territory.
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>39599130Several hours later..."Damn, that really did help man. Good fucking idea. You didn't really need to bring then entire ammunition store here though, you could've just brought samples of each.""Well you know how salvaged and reloaded ammunition can be, besides it's only like...3/4s of it.

You want to do the honors?""Fuck yeah I do.">Armament Production has been OVERCLOCKED>AMMUNITION RESERVES ARE BEING OVERLOADED----"So dude, do you really think it's a good idea to take a smoke outside the ammo dump?""Chillax man, it's fucking fine. Not like we've got enough in there for anything real troublesome to happen anyway?""Wait, what's that clinking noise?">WARNING>WWAARRNNIINNGG
>>39599218That is the plan. Easier said than done though as even if we complete the hurdle of controlling the ground surface, there's also the underground to contend with. And the monsters down there
merely survival isnt enough, we must dominate. >>39599256true, im thinking... guardsmen - ground (eventual vehicle support and arty needed) stormtrooper/heavy infantry - underground ( heavy gear and sensor, domesticated predator beasts etc)air power/paratroopers - search and raid/rapid deploy
>>39599315To start with, we'll likely have to reach a point where we are wealthy enough to either hire/integate such troops/mercs into our fold, or get in league with an actual paramilitary

Rolled 92 (1d100)>>39599837>>39599872Also my last wacky guess is that they are mutants, and that our scouts never noticed because they were soley using that radio vision of theirs.It would make sense since they never imagined us to return "so friendly"
>>39599904Maybe they are robots.Robots would be a strong source of radio chatter, and computer parts would be useful for them. Unity might mean fixing up an old Super Computer or something to lead them
>>39599970dear gods, i was just about to post this...
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>39599837Probably Megacorp remnants. There was talk of how they extended a line of credit to our ancestors, that doesn't sound like anything any other faction would do.
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>39599970This anon might have it.Think about it. Megacorps often used robots in their manufacturingRobot radio chatter would be common from all of them talking to each otherAnd it explains the bandits use of radio jammers (against them) and why they want computer parts.
>>39599970>>39600033That's more support for an idea than any other has right now

There is no queen of the hive there are just many body's of the one.This is a good point. But I still think it's a hivemind.They state "It occurs to the collective that we"A collective acknolwedges a, well, collective of individuals working together. Likewise the use of the pronoun 'we'.Had they said."It occurs to Urfgent that I"that would be more indicative of a one mind. Indeed, it would be readily obvious when it seems like we're speaking to one person yet each refers to that same person.

Rolled 23 (1d100)>>39612511I think they are a one mind mostly because there is no reason robots would go for a hive and not a oneThey might have been a hive mind once and that would explain them saying "the we of Urfgent" and when the signal is bad the are hive mind once more.Really the are both just depending on there wifi strength. The one mind is just a perfect hive mind. Among bio minds the one mind can never truly be reached but with AI it's almost easy. We should focus on figuring them out and working with us, and eventually joining us.We could say thinks like "with your minds as a one it grants you great strength but often it requires different perspectives to innovate." That's is how we help them. We can innovate far faster that the minds of metal.

You think you even saw a wheel or something roll across the floor and off the tower."Torg, that's just a gigantic pile of scrap.""Ohhh noo it's not! IT'S PERFECT.">Repairs to ammunition production are underway>Heroic unit detected
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>39617511>Investigate the baths and 'odd feelings'Your squad of randomly selected investigators stood on the edge of the gash in the roadway, looking down at your hot bath complex. No one had been willing to volunteer to actually investigate how they managed to exist, so straws had been drawn."Well...shit. Do any of you guys even remember how or why we built this shit?""The 'why' is easy. We were all /very/ drunk and wanted some hot baths. As for how...I don't know, I think I maybe remember the caravaners have some equipment?""Uhh, right...I think I remember getting into a Digga Sigga with Ramona at some point...I don't know, just thinking about that night kind of makes my head hurt."Your members stood in silence for a little while longer. Below them a series of surprisingly organized and well made pools occupied the bottom of your trench. Steam was coming off them faintly, and a few even had bubblers active. It would've been quite a refreshing sight if it weren't completely devoid of people."Well...who wants to go in first?""Draw straws again?""...Nah, let's just get this over with already. Fucking Council couldn't just leave well enough alone.">Investigators dispatched to figure out MAD Underground Hot Baths.>Why have you inflicted this upon us?

Bump for OP
Rolled 50 (1d100)Apologies for the delay, kinda had to deal with the gf having a mental breakdown. Resuming now.
>>39619479There is a d in deal
you want to reschedule srelok?
>>39618400Technically I think its a multiverse but Genie doesn't share the gory details due to continued world building efforts and spoilers.
>>39619479[spoilers]Irl first buddy, I hope she is okay.[/spoiler]Good to have you back!
>>39619724Actually, from what Genie implies, most if not all of them were connected in a distinct timeine.He has mentioned the fantasy is a prelude to the Post Apoc. And that both the sci fi iterations where also, preludes to the Post Apoc.So technically speaking, they are all in a singular universe.Even if they aren't, it's pretty much confirmed that each respective setting is all in one universe (Post apocs, Sci fi's, and fantasy's)
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>39618400The Memor is the beginning, it's a good place to start.After that the highpoints are: Adero, Bloodsnow Bandits, V101, Splicer Brigade, Gearhead Garrison, Jungle Cultists, Hax.
>>39619765Yeah but Genie also implied with 'outsiders' meaning its not just one universe. There was also the modern invasion into fantasyland that ended in disaster.Hence why I think it may actually be a multiverse...would love to get a look at Genie's notes.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>39617700Your team has begun investigating the baths. They are making spectacular progress, given the situation. Several insights have already been gained.>Source of heatApparently when we dropped down the MAD Bandit Pyro Grenades down here during Monster Mayhem they did more than just blow flames through all the underground pipes within a square kilometer or two of the base.It seems dropping so many at once has given the area a lasting MAD effect. There appear to be static anomalies in MANY locations that are just patches of superheated air. This was discovered the hard way when one of your investigators had a damn good walking stick burnt into ash for seemingly no reason. Somehow your drunk asses managed to harness these superheated spots to warm the water for your hot baths.On the upside though, the anomalies seem to be clustered around the walls of the trench. Preventing entrance/egress through the various exposed tunnels. This explains why there's been so little trouble with monster attacks from underground, as they've likely not had the chance to develop sufficient heat resistance (yet).
>>39619976Hmm, random heat spots? I'd like to investigate if these are static or dynamic, popping up randomly.If they are static, even if they lose their disuading effect we might harness them for more than baths but also steam power and therefor electricity
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39619976>BathsThe baths themselves were created for exactly the reasons you would expect from a bunch of extremely drunk people. You were all feeling nasty and dirty from your...activities, and you wanted a goddamn hot bath (do you know how hard it is to get a hot bath as a caravaner? FUCKING HARD)."How" is similarly unsurprising. You guys 'borrowed' a Digga Sigga from the caravan in order to neaten up the trench a bit, and then used a combination of your construction supplies, expertise, and a good amount of drunken elbow grease to make this shit surprisingly nice. It still can't be determined how you mapped out the Heat Anomalies without any fatalities.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>39620098>Odd FeelingsThis was the hardest bit to actually investigate...and the most taxing on your investigators.On the upside, you actually did figure out what the odd feelings were. Apparently the MAD effects keeping the anomalies in place are...bleeding out and in some places destabilizing. It doesn't seem to have effected the anomalies just yet, as it's just beginning, but the MAD is enough for people to feel if they spend too much time in the Baths.>Civ has acquired a very mild tolerance to MAD. This is not entirely good.Somehow it seems that the way in which your baths were constructed stabilized the MAD effects that heat your pools, and has prolonged the presence of Anomalies along the edges of the trench. So for the moment everything is precisely balanced such that all the anomalies are stable and stationary, but it is impossible to know what will happen as the MAD continues to deteriorate.On the downside...gaining the insights necessary to discover and explain all of this has driven your investigators thoroughly MAD. >Acquired-10 MAD Members
>>39620225I've seen this before guys.We must not let the Mad get out of hand, it is literally civ ending otherwise. And we're not even bandits/mutants who at least have stronger toelrances to Mad.Best find a way to nip or control this at the bud
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>39620225Meanwhile, inside your base..."Holy shit Torg. What IS this?""It's an armament production line, Michael. What's it look like?""It looks like some sort of unholy fusion of a nuclear reactor, Megapolice factory line, and...some sort of mechatrice tech.""Oh. Well goddamn but you have good eyes Michael, how'd you tell about the Mechatrice bit?""Something about the combinations was bugging me, and I've always been bugged around Mechatrice stuff so it was just a lucky guess really.""Damn fine lucky guess. Anywho...it's ready. Which one of us did the honors last time?""I believe it was you.""Damn....Probably best if you do the honors this time then.""Uhh, just a second. What about storage and shit? That's where the actual problem was last time.""I hooked up with Gunny and the new Drill Sergeant (real pleasant guy, btw). It's been seen to, personally, by them...there won't *sniff* be any explosions this time."After finishing his sentence Torg briefly broke into an uncontrollable sobbing fit. "Dude, it's not /that/ bad. Anyway, time to fire this bad boy up."
>>39620225>>39620395Um. Well. At least we know now, right? I guess?How should we get a handle of this?
>>39620505Knowing is half the problem, once shit gets out of hand, and I get too drunk, than I start suggesting mad ideas.

>>39620596>-Big Boss reports things are going well with the Urfgent. He request permission to carry out the rest of the mission as he sees fit."Boss, is this urgent? We have a caravan coming in and we would like your expertise on this matter.Can it wait for a bit, or do you feel you should continue this immediately?"
>>39620621I suggest we pay the caravans to take them to a place where they might find refuge. It would be more merciful than killing or outcasting them, and less detrimental than keeping them openly.
>>39620596Give the research lab three resources, but fucking check on what they are doing this time.
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39620395The only reason bandits deal with MAD is simply because they can't avoid it and I never said mutants had Mad resistance.They don't but tend to be more tolerant of crazy due to neurological changes due to their mutations. This simply means they are more tolerant of 'eccentrics' but full blown crazy and your out. Bots consider MAD downright lethal and are actually the only faction in general who go out of their way through to of put down their crazies and its considered VERY dangerous. This is because its MADNESS is much MUCH more contagious for them.Classically speaking when factions have some of their people go insane they get kicked out and tend to do the same with other troublemakers/criminals. This actually ends up forcing the bandits to take them and care for them.Which they do. Every bandit base has a 'crazy town' section to them.Also bandits who regularly use MAD are known to be especially insane because for bandits who actually have a TOLERANCE to madtech they fully accept the fact that there is a 50/50 chance of it going terribly wrong if they use it(and they are the only ones trained for it besides actual crazies). They accept this fact and usually use it for emergencies or if they are considered crazy even by Bandit standards(they have high standards when it comes to insanity).Obviously bandit Crazed units are free to use Madtech however they please. Obviously bandits prefer to keep their distance from said forces as even the crazies can have madtech blow up in their faces(quite possibly literally) but all the larger bandit forces have MADtech and crazy units equipped with them. In an emergency, desperation, or downright mental break ordinary bandit forces will(ingly) use madtech.
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>39620596>>>>>>E. Explore in a direction/something.The Caravan.

Rolled 9 (1d100)>>39620505General policy regarding MAD in the Post-Apoc is to never touch it in the first place.If you do get hit with/infected by it then you need to excise the source ASAP.>>39620627"What, that caravan who's transmissions we've been hearing? You guys really need to get a sense for how good these sensors I got you are. They're still outside of the damn city.Anyway, it'd be pretty detrimental to extract right now. The main thing these guys are interested in about us is how unexpectedly friendly and open we were from the very start."

Rolled 64 (1d100)>>39620937So many goddamn crits to deal with. Damn.
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39620910You know nothing. Wait till the absurd combos get involved or a theme starts showing up.then believe me you'll know...YOU'LL KNOW!>>39620927Proximity to MAD will generate and afflict further MADNESS to those nearby. Which in game terms is sanity damage. It takes something special to drive someone past the point of insanity and succumb to fullblown madness.Which is why all Bandits aren't so heavily afflicted by it as you would think. Its also represents a sad state of affairs with how BANDITS of all people are the only ones who go out of their way to take in crazies and other outcasts. The other factions know this and accept this fact. While it isn't the best option often enough its the only one as only bandits for the most part are equipped to handle the crazy and MAD.This is due to the instutitions and resources being lost that would normally be able to help treat it. Now in the VAST majority of areas bandits are their only hope.In the few areas that by some strange miracle have a still functional institute to handle them are often overwhelmed and liable to being overrun due to lack of resources.Its worth noting those types of places are among the only places that bandits wont attack and even more bizarrely react with kindness by even going out of their way to helping them out. Usually this means in gifts, escorts of crazies to them, and even taking in people when they become too overwhelmed making sure they have a place to go.Local bandits around those institutes are notoriously protective of them as it means they have to deal with a lot less crazy(though often they are still stuck with MADs but hey not NEARLY as bad as it could be).Its one of those things that is suppose to show the shittiness of the post apoc. People who need that kind of help 99.999% of them can't get it and are thrown out as it becomes too much. Meaning that the bandits are the ones having to take them in and help take care of them.
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>39620596i saw we follow AndroCorps lead and quietly terminate the infected before they become know to our new allies, or are let go and wind up leading bandits or worse about all our secrets and location. we need to stamp them out in a HURRY, 10 men, or our whole organisation, i for one wont jepardise our future.
>>39621176Thanks for the info!>>39620937once done that trench will make a krieger cry, An Iron Warrior pop a boner and the inquisition have a heart attack.We should name it 'The Mariana Soak'
>>39621343I doubt even 10 men would be privvy to anything vitally important such that only our heroes would know.We can afford to have them shipped off quietly by the Caravan if they accept. A bit of kindess now can pay of a lot more later
>>39621419correction: a bit of kindness now CAN kill us all later!(not to mention some other poor unfortunate souls)the hesitent wont survive long out here comrade...This IS the right choice to be made, just not the comfortable one.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>39620937Kill the mad ones quickly in there sleep. You want there pain to end but not to suffer.
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>39621470>>39621493End the madness.
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>39621343>>39621419>>39621470I.. sadly agree. INterview then quite deaths, preferably on another 'mission to the tunnles' down in the trench. lead them a few hundred meters away and into a mined area. Let the explosives kill them off. We should do as much as possible to keep the knowlage of this plan in the council. the trap setters will think they are just setting a trap. The commanders just think it's another mission. THe MADers do as well. it will be such a sad accident.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>39621343It would still be frowned upon. Think about it those are people's loved ones your talking about and...you don't really have the resources to care for them. Not to mention they might be a danger and are guaranteed to be a drain.Its only acceptable for Bots to do that and even then its shady to others. Bots however don't give a shit about that because to them its an extremely serious matter.And if you really worried about hidden location what you do is blindfold them and go in a few circles to get them lost before letting them go.That is what the hidden factions due with their crazies and other outcasts to prevent their location from being blown.Execution can also happen but its frowned upon if you start killing everyone not to mention a drain in resources. Better to just let the nasties outside kill them for you and give em a chance.Though this is my verse and its what goes down in the background.>>39621470your assuming that they will have a shred of sanity enough to blame someone. Which is rather rare and even then its not like the bandits are gonna listen to them. You NEVER listen to the damned crazies or the Mads.
>>39621547or... just this >>39621493
>>39621470>>39621493>>39621547This treads down the same dark path another civ I recall happening. One that resulted in what arguably can be considered our most evil civ yet. The MemorI have a feeling I won't convince you otherwise, but people outcast their madders all the time without difficulty, even think tanks and corps.If we even go so far as to give them a reason to remember us fondly, they won't have a reason to turn against us in the future. And it sets a standard of morality for us to follow and hold back against that slippery slope.
>>39621565Paradoxically the Memor had the best intentions we ever had and had some really good moments where we did do good things, upstanding and noble even.They were very extreme and chaotic
>>39621556>your assuming that they will have a shred of sanity enough to blame someoneAnd if they do retain that shred of sanity and information to think about us, what do we want them to think of us? Someone to hate, or to remember fondly?I have seen outcasts come back with a vengeance to help end civs, but only because they had reason to hate us.If we give them a reason not to, even if they pose a threat, I believe they'd know enough to remember what we did for em
Rolled 31 (1d100)hmm, it COULD work, and probably will. But thats simply a chance none of us pragmatic types are willing to take. if they die, end of story, however every moment they live is a liability. solution, cold hard execution of cancerous material.I remain unconvinced, life is cheap.
>>39621672Life IS cheapbut character is pricelessYou're right, if we kill em we'll get nothing (at best).But I feel if we don't there is a chance, no matter how small, we'll get something good in the end
martrys , brave souls lost in the hot gash anomalies, they died ensuring the rest of us would be safe, HEROES, THE LOT OF THEM! ....thats what well say. no one questions a hero.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>39621565Perhaps you're right. I think giving them resources, gear, A map [fraudulent or not] and a nice letting go could be advisable. there are people out there who can care for them, care about them deeper than our pragmatic hearts can be aloud to...
>>39621699by that same logic, theres a equal chance were fucked for our kindness. PEOPLE, these are men no longer, walking sanity tumors is a more apt description! there existence is a threat, that wont change, ever. end it now, while its controllable.
Rolled 36 (1d100)Anon did guess correctly about the Urfghent androids. I'd give him another chance with the mad infected.
>>39621788clarify, your FOR gut instinct suggesting a potential gain, or your for a pragmatic view of potential threats?
I like to imagine all of this debate is happing In Character between council members
>>39621850you bet your ass it is. politics is scary shit man...
>>39621863they get in fist fights...
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>39621844I am for trusting gut instincts for potential gain. It's served us well so far.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>39621565That is true...there is also another hidden facet.Another reason why people don't kill their crazies is because bandits take that sorta thing rather poorly. They do the same thing with the execution of would be outcasts.They do the same thing if bandits find out there its a bandit faction who refuses to help outcasts or crazies.You know what they do?The bandits go unleash their crazies on them.And they ALL do it until there is nothing left IF the faction in question isn't bandit. For the bandit version same thing but there is a chance you'll make it out alive.How to do this however means taking in ALL the crazies sent your way and no buts about it. Once word spreads they'll stop throwing them at you. This 'privilege' doesn't extend to nonbandits.The bandits refer to this as a 'hazing' and they do it to whoever refuses to treat the crazies right. Also if they REALLY fucking hate something they'll do it too except they'll offer backup. Bandits rarely hate something that much though as it tends not to much behind for fun and loot.Outcasts however get a different treatment. If bandits find out you don't do your part with the outcasts. they'll go out of their way to attack you especially if your a fellow bandit faction.And ALL the bandits will do this to a faction who doesn't do outcasts IF that is their found out. Eventually bandits do find out because they are very good at that sorta thing. Mostly because their lives sorta depends on it.Alright I am gonna go anon now. Just been in an odd bandit mood for awhile.>>39621788What mean?
>>39621886I also had a hunch with Ramona too, which if that 100 means anything, will also get us something good.Still, I admit, I might be horribly wrong about all this and you can all hate me for it later.But having played a dozen "practical acceptance of minor evils, leading to greater and greater sins until we're practically evil" civs, I really want to see if we can try playing good and staying good, just once.Strelok's offering me a blank slate to try it anew, I wanna use that chance.
>>39621887meh, i want all bandits dead on sight anyway. burn the traitors, the mutant, and the heretic. pure and simple.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>39620937>Fortify the trenchYour entire civilization [which is still unnamed] deploys out in force to secure the Trench. Many speak of how it's high goddamn time you do something to seal it up. In fact several of them had extensive ideas on how exactly to seal it off. All of which were heard, integrated together, and implemented flawlessly. Slowly a metal skin seemed to scab the gash in the streets over, eventually covering the entire thing. The brand new manufacturing line was put to use to manufacture weapons that were jury rigged onto your autoturrets, doubling their firepower. Then half were removed and placed to cover the new defenses on the Trench.The fortifications in your Northern tower were extended down to the ground, and then expanded in order to encompass the Trench entirely. As a consequence, groundlevel around all of your towers has been secured somewhat, complete with automated defenses, pillbox networks, and all the nastiest fucking traps you could imagine.Suffice to say that shit has been LOCKED DOWN. No one and nothing is getting out unless you want it to.>Acquired ground fortifications.>Tower grounds secured.>Trench has been Fortified++.
>>39621953>Still, I admit, I might be horribly wrong about all this and you can all hate me for it later.I'm the one who had them investigate the bath in the first place, so you definitely won't be getting any from me.Personally speaking, I want to keep them. Maybe it's naive, but this happened to them because of my suggestion. A bullet in the head or the bum's rush seems poor thanks indeed.
>>39621887yeah, that settles it. THough the settings are distinct, I'd rather not let this risk come to pass.It's very odd though, we aren't given the chance or choice to try and help our boyo's beyond sending them out to join some murderband...
>>39621956Killing bandits on sight is fine as they are by definition are raiders, pillagers, and rapists. The people who are actually evil.Mutants though. . .I'd be cautious about killing them.Yes, they are frowned upon by human society and its ill advised to have any sort of relations for them as it is also frowned upon (though not nearly as much as bandits I think).But they aren't always evil, though many of them live up to their reputation, most of them have the same amount of free will.There are bandit mutants, and there are non bandit mutants trying to make a living.Whatever we do we shouldn't we seek to provoke a fight with them because they are that strong. And as I always believe, one good turn is usually returned.
Rolled 30 (1d100)i call for a hard vote on the execution vs exhile debate or wait.roll and prefference. make it easy for strelokim quiet execution.
>>39622036mutants are on a case by case basis, traitors are free game.
>>39622033Yeah, its a tough choice with cons all around.If we do kill craizes not only is it slightly demoralizing but if ever found out even the damn bandits will target us especially and unleash crazies on us in some vagueness of ironic backlash.At the same time we can't bloody well keep them, that's a problem that compounds we do NOT want to happen.>>39622058I am against execution and for outcast, preferably hospitable outcast.
>>39622083i might still get my AndroCorp sexy robos, now if only there are monster girl mutants....hmmm.
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>39621887As in bandits will go out of their way to whip their crazies into a frenzy before pointing them in a direction. Just under normal cases bandits wont do this in MASS and in this case they WILL do so.So for a faction who doesn't treat their crazies right expect waves of whipped up crazies sent after you even if your a bandit.For factions who refuse unleashing other outcasts this simply puts you on priority listing of 'assholes who need to get fucked' and unlike the previous one it doesn't matter if your bandit or not.Bandits like to thing of such things as karmic payback and avenging the dead.They will go out of their way to fuck your shit up even putting aside old grudges and teaming up. This has the interesting affect of sort of forcing non bandit factions to be 'nicer'. Which is why the Genie has never really revealed much appalling factions besides bandits.>>39622033Meh I just follow a train of thoughts and ask my self the effects along with reasons. It leads to some very weird and interesting places.Though from what I can tell is a different setting and i have no idea how things really work here. Even the Mad shit.>>39622036Bandits are varying levels of evil as a whole no exception. Even the outcasts...for them though its nothing but a matter of time.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>39622058We could give the mad ones to the botsOr... Sell them to the caravan. To sum madness has value.this madness is the most valuable. They have knowledge to literal endless energy pits. That has high value

>>39622214Outcasts can be crazies, but aren't always. Outcasts are just that, people are cast out for one reason or another. Probably for commit crimes like rape or theft who we can or won't kill/imprison for one reason or another. Maybe your family was kicked out when another family took its place as head of the clan. I imagine even odd cases like intelligent infected zombies or mutated citizens who are smart enough to stay sane but can't stay for obvious reasons.

Rolled 80 (1d100)>>39622161That would require exploration of the underground to determine. Your towers clearly had basement levels once upon a time...but they were /thoroughly/ collapsed and buried a very long time ago.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>39622214Outcasts are those who for whatever reason aren't wanted anymore and may not always be insane.They can range anywhere from being criminals, addicts, or just some poor bastard who pissed off the wrong people. Hell some outcasts are simply thrown out because there isn't enough to go around though in those kinds of cases its typically attempted to have the group split up creating another faction instead so that way you don't curse them to banditry.Simply put for whatever reason outcasts are simply undesirables who aren't utterly insane. >>39622269Pretty much dead on.There are TONS of different kinds of outcasts and its one of those cases where all crazies are outcasts not all outcasts are crazy.Bandits actually do have a sort of universal code they follow and punishments of breaking it are severe with it dealt out by other bandits. Its one of the only causes where you can expect bandits to easily unify under however temporarily and 'bandit justice' is some nasty shit.

Specifically about a certain caravan and a certain ah. . .thing we should keep to ourselvesIs this channel secure?"Main reason I want to support-Wait for the caravan to arrive, then trade them offis that we can ensure they go somewhere far far away where there's less of chance they'll bother us. And we might even ensure they don't fall into bandit hands or slavery.That said, we don't want the caravan to know this if this will detriment relations.

Rolled 76 (1d100)>>39622468You have a no-man's land around your towers that is kept clear of trees and other obstructions automatically.

Rolled 87 (1d100)>>39622839Damn, someone thought to ask...>Scouts ReportThe steam pillars seem to be some sort of automated safety feature of the city's infrastructure network. Pressure builds up too much, so it gets vented. Problem is that it doesn't seem like the pipes in question were designed to handle steam. From what you can tell they were actually the pipe network that supplied water to various automated fire suppression systems.On the upside, that means the pipes are designed to handle a lot more pressure than normal, and have pressure release systems in place. On the downside, when those pressure release systems fail they fail HARD. Apparently we just got unlucky though. They could only find 1 other location that had endured a proper explosion like we did, and it wasn't even half as bad. It's possible that there are others, but we didn't have enough men to cover all the area.The North tower at least should be safe from any further explosions, as all the piping was utterly wrecked. The worst we can expect there would be unpredictable boiling hot steambaths flooding tunnels randomly, with a little bit venting to the surface sometimes.

>>39623134We've got to make this place heaven first.We'll start out as a haven. But when we make this place the best place to be for miles around where caravaners want to take a rest and where you feel safe, then people will say "That place is high heaven"Or at least, even if we can't do that, we'll set up a reputation of being so

Rolled 36 (1d100)>>39623085Don't get me wrong, you can certainly become some badass combat proficient survivors, and your numbers and pop growth will ensure that you have plenty of oomph.But Paramilitary civs get the best of Pre-Fall war technology. Genemods, VR Training, cyberaugments, gear, power armor, weapons, tanks, flyers, the works.They /start/ with that when they wake up from stasis.There's nothing preventing you from getting that, except for the world being generally hazardous and all that stuff being very rare, heavily sought after, and jealously guarded (by the people best equipped to guard it).

Plenty of room for infrastructure improvements too. Your towers are nowhere near the largest buildings in the city. The Urfgent Megatower, for instance, is about twice the size of one of your towers.Some secret background stuff prevented you from starting with a larger population.Several floors have been collapsed or removed for your defensive networks though. Each tower has had its structure heavily modified over your stay here.
then its settled? well be known as the "HIGH HEAVENS" community? as a colective (individual towers out of our trio can be given indivudal names of course) ? sound good?
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>39623264Also, the trees that infest the city can rival the heights of even the tallest buildings. The tree in the middle of your towers, for instance, caps out about 20 meters below their roofs.Pre-Fall had a pretty ridiculous powerlevel. Think about it, the Tech-Bandits that attacked you were using grenades that had a pseudo infinite-energy effect (by using MAD, to be fair). That's what bandits have, let alone what Think Tanks get access to.
>>39623235we found one of the MADers... >>39623264>3 mini-towersFUck.. that's cool! we could have mas transportation in there, gondolas and shit! if we survive we should try to work on our internals. Also, have people really been hoofing it up and down this whole fucking time? jesus. that party also stretched from top to bottom with only a couple thousand people... we party hardy
>>39623264confirmation, our towers are in a close proximety , along with the annexxed gash, and ALL FOUR ENTITIES PLUS OPEN GROUND are surrounded by a perimeter wall? cuase if not, that needs to happen assap.
>>39623353we tried that early on, but then the gash opened up.hey strelock, would the streets of this city feel kind of like an overgrown [and upsized] new mombasa from Halo? that's the idea I've been running off of.It's also terrifying that monsters died in such numbers that they piled with visual significance against our Kilometer fall tower.Do other towers collapse all that often? I've seen what the WTC did to new york streets as it fell, what would it look like for one of those fuckers to fall? Would one of the mega towers cause a dominoes effect? Or are the towers more likely to colaps directly down?
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>39623323Nah, you've got plenty of elevators and gondolas and such. In fact, several of the main living floors have been expanded to cross the gaps between all the towers by using the center-tree's branches as supports.See, at civ creation there were a couple of Remnants choices on there. If you'd chosen one of those you would've gotten to pick between>Remnantsand>DescendantsRemnants start off with Pre-Fall gear, better training, larger stockpiles of supplies, and some other bonuses. They're also unknown to all their surrounding factions, but with a brief intel dump of their surrounding area. You're a group of Old World remnants who've just been woken up.Descendants, on the other hand, are the descendants of Remnants or people who survived the Fall. They get more well rounded bases, a more stable society, established connections with surrounding factions, and bonuses against local threats.>>39623353You have perimeter fortifications and defenses all along the ground around your three towers. Around the North tower the defenses have been extended to incorporate a more distant line that encompasses the Gash.>>39623399It's been quite a while sense any towers have fallen. The ones that survived the Fall tended to be the tougher ones.Most factions/monsters wouldn't be capable of collapsing a megastructure intentionally. These things were hefty investments and they weren't a stretch to build, so they were built to last.
>>39623399this semi sci fi, post apoc, mega towers etc wouldnt contain insulation , concret, asbestoes, or have a dozen other dusty matirials. itd be all metals and polymeres and meta matirials. nano carbon, graphene, titanium, steel, aluminum, etc. big boom, crash etc, less dust cloud.
>>39623433okay, thx strelok. so we DO have a ground perimeter, also, ill keep in mind this is far more sci fi then i imagined. halo-Esq etc. new thread on wensday.also , name "high Heaven"gnight
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>39623399I suppose that's an apt way of thinking about it.It's equal parts megacity and forest though, so think about how much more extreme this city is than what you're familiar with...and apply it to the forest also. Contrary to what most people in the 1st world might think, forests are not a friendly place. At all. Nasty things lurk in forests, scary things that go bump in the night, and all the trees look the same when you have to run away from something.
im gonna try and sketch this out some day.
>>39623491so like a mix between kasheek, The congo, New mombasa/New alexandria?Fucking awesome. this old world had to have had off world assets, if only in space stations and mining... right? Is this a kind of alt-earth setting? As in, are ther eany locations that we would know?
>>39623605but with trees...and less lights on
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>39623569There are locations that might seem similar, but no direct analogues. As for off world assets and space exploitation...you'll have to look around in-game if you'd like to discover that sort of information, but the Fall has erased a lot of knowledge that was once commonplace.So no, not alternate earth.
>>39623605or this i think>>39623616 that's really nifty, thanks man.how complete of a picture do you have for this world? no spoilers of course, but, is it pretty coherent?
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>39623646The section of it that you're in is coherent, and as of next thread background stuff will start chugging along. Factions that you haven't encountered will spawn and do their thing, monsters will begin to act like proper monsters, and the secrets of the city will come into play whether you find them or not.The areas surrounding the city are sketched out and moderately populated, but you aren't big enough players to really be worried about anything other than your immediate surroundings thus far though.The Flamebandits came from out of the city though, so distant undiscovered areas do have an effect on you if you get just the right mixture of circumstances.
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>39623703I'm really stoked on this game man, THank you so much for running it. I'm really digging it's style.WOuld you mind me tring to make MSpaint maps of the various areas? they'd be rough and shitty but something at least... what shape are the towers?
