Rolled 54 (1d100)The inside of the vast cavern stretches on all around the lonesome group of a dozen or so armored men. Below them looms a shallow canyon-like feature dotted with the occasional pile of bones, strange fungal growth, or patch of luminescent...don't even want to know what that is really. Your scouts sit quietly and silently in an improvised hide, noting the occasional crossings of murderkrabs, lurkers, and other as-yet-unidentified monsters that look much nastier.A few dozen meters away from the hide is a small swathe of ground lightly covered with several meaty looking fungal growths. Only a keen eye would be able to detect the hidden capture pit lying below it. Unfortunately it seems that ALL THE FUCKING MONSTERS have keen eyes.A lithe and graceful grey quadruped enters the valley suddenly and heading for the capture pit. Its galloping stride eats distance with incredible efficiency, and within moments it is at the edge of the trap and seemingly...sniffing at the fungal bait. The thing cocks its diode-filled head to one side as it sniffs at the contents of your trap, and after a few moments of investigation grabs one of the fruits in a talon and feeds it into a metallic port on its underside.Then another.Then another.It methodically makes its way through the fungal trap until finally the ground collapses from under the robot scout with a distinct "CRACK. The trap doors re-fold themselves in an instant, devoid of their fungal bait this time, and deploy several metallic rings for pickup.The scene replays itself with minor variations all across the massive science-complex cave you have access to, with almost 100% effectiveness.>Acquired 15 Felinid RobotsWelcome to the Post Apoc.

Rolled 37 (1d100)>>41859136>Look into expanding hydroponics bay>Figure out just what we have in the bandit armoryLater we should get the prisoners some better living conditions, on the condition that they give us info on the surface and answer any questions we have.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>41859136I vote we study the scouts to learn what we can about them.I agree with the improving food production. Can we throw in some games to keep the prisoners busy?
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>41859482I don't think we need to spend an action for an already deployed scouting expedition (correct me if I'm wrong Strelok), but if you want to spy on the robot scouts that's fine.We just captured some catlike robots that might be part of their force though, our scouts should send them back to our base for study.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>41859618A few of your scouts are currently in the field, but were beginning preparations to withdraw seeing as you actually captured a few of your quarry. If you'd like to observe their actions against/around other factions in the field then you'd have to burn another action this turn.The scoutbots are already in your containment units, you simply have to use an action if you'd like to interrogate/deconstruct/otherwise study them.
>>41859618I wanted to get more detail, than the passive drones would gain. Maybe even try attacking to gauge reaction and draw them away from us.
>>41859618The robots themselves could be apart of a much wider threat that could rival our strength, these aren't just some random bandits that own these robots.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>41859800>>41859618By the way, asking the captured robots questions is free. More advanced/in-depth interrogation will require an action.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>41859800Exactly. They came from the city, and therefore almost certainly represent a much bigger, tougher faction than us. What do you propose we do about it?>>41859720Whatever we do, do NOT initiate hostilities.So continue watching the rest of the scouts to see what they do?
dice+2d6>>41859970We should have a volunteer(s) go and try to find any more, they could be friendly, possibly. They aren't primitive by any means so they might be willing to work with us.

Rolled 48 (1d100)>>41860043It's 1d100, not 2d6. Preferably with every post, I use the numbers for background events and influencing your actions' results.
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>41860064And I fucked up again, Sorry I havent rolled in ages
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>41859901"What faction are you aligned with?">>41860043So you want to try diplomacy? I can agree with that.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>41860101The robots act strangely when asked your question. They press themselves to the floor and hologram projections of a trio of interlocking diamond-shapes are displayed above their heads, followed by a voice recording in a feminine yet distinctly synthetic tone."And so yet another unknown faction decides that they must contact my glorious presence! I am the esteemed and famed ROBOTICIST Annette Gloriana, graduated top of class at Herdette Institute of Advanced Studies and Technology and ruler of the Lab-Under-The-Mountain.These scouts will proceed to initiate a radio connection to my HQ, discontinue any blocking measures since you wish to plumb my immense depths of knowledge and we may continue this conversation in real time.">Scout robots are emitting radio signals.-Block Signals-Allow them to go through normally-Reroute/mimic sgnals to disguise your location.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>41860258Now this is a scientist I think we might be able to ally with.I vote to reroute/mimic signals to disguise our location. Hopefully Gloriana will understand, we are a hidden base and don't want any eavesdroppers discovering our location.
>>41860343I agree, this has potential, we can't block the signal and avoid contact but we should practice some cation.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>41860378Sorry still getting used to the dice. think I got it now.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>41860258>-Block SignalsMove to an outside area away from base. Then we can keep talking.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>41860456Sooo...redirect the signals to disguise your location?
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>41860498I was thinking move the robot after putting it in a box to keep it from telling what's happening.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>41860568Fair enough.>Choose 1-Reroute signals to disguise your location, keeping bots in advanced containment unit.-Physically move bots so they can't transmit your location, keeping them in improvised containment units.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>41860633I suppose anon's suggestion is good, move the bots a fair distance outside the base.Let's remember guys, when we start talking we have to be on our best behavior. We're Brits meeting a well-educated and clearly very talented lady. Be polite, be professional.
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>41860633Let's move them.Kek, let's move them towards that Mar-whatever base.
What's the status of our heavy armament? In particular artillery?
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>41860809You have no artillery aside from a few mortar batteries Topside (artillery is pretty useless caveside). You do possess the ability to manufacture basic artillery though.
>>41860848Ok, thanks.Right then, manufacturing artillery should be a pretty major priority for us in the near future. If we want to be an effective fighting force on the surface, we will need some heavy ordinance.
OP may or may not fall asleep if the thread doesn't pick up. Even if I don't fall asleep...I have to wake up at 4:45 or so tomorrow for work, so the thread will be much shorter than usual.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>41860899We don't even really know what's on the surface, for now I suggest we focus on improving our infantry as far as military goes.We don't really need artillery to explore all the caves and underground bunkers and shit.As far as heavy ordinance goes, all we have right now is the walkers.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>41860930I just got here and I'm ready to rock'>rolling for godzillas cock rockin dance
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>41861197>We don't even really know what's on the surfaceThat's exactly why we should build artillery -- having a great many cannon will mitigate a number of other shortcomings.And improving infantry is necessary and beneficial, but there's just no real replacement for artillery. Without it, we're severely limited both on offence and defence.Or to put it like this; while that ghoul horde was advancing up the valley, we should have been firing on them.
Bump.Just arrived, let's see what we're dealing with.
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>41861653In our current state and environment, open battles should really be our last resort. In a world where anything useful is below ground or immune complex, artillery seems a bit wasteful. We should even be shooting first when the transmission state clearly that there are other groups looking for peaceful relations.
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>41860633I vote option 2, pity the thread lost a chunk of momentum right during some diplomacy with what may be a well needed ally.
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>41859136As for base actionsI vote>>41859301Expanding the Hydroponics bay in expectation of more bug numbers is a good idea, and more plants means more biofuel regardless so that is an excellent idea.Learning what's in the bandit armory is also a good idea.
>>41861850I personally vote one.It should also be okay as long as we keep it alive since it seems we just got some reinforcements from /tg/ high command
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>41861906grrr
Rolled 73 (1d100)Option 1>>41859301Backing this
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>41860633ive been gone for three threads, i will return for this one. working is hard.vote: reroute signals, but retain location.
>>41860809>>41860848>>41860899>>41861653You there, the anon who suggests we get artillery.I like you and fully agree with your sentiment, and feel that we've neglected the surface considerably.>>41860930What's the status on the stealth drone research by the way? It's been going on for some time and we've already provided the resources.
>>41862263Especially considering friendly (human) factions are more likely to be on the surface than underground. I do agree with underground expedition too.Perhaps the two arent' mutually exclusive. We could develop artillery capable of both arced and direct fire, for hard targets below ground and to smash targets above ground.
>>41862263>What's the status on the stealth drone research by the way?Sword said he was "about halfway done" a few turns ago, so... maybe 60%? Two-thirds?
>>41862335Bah, I still suggest we further explore the surface once either our current scout force is done with their task, or the new troops are trained. Or better still we send out the Major next turn to do so anyway with some good men.Speaking of prisoners, I believe we were also supposed to deliver them sometime soon. I want them gone and out of our hairs, and I can't say I'm interested in another fight so soon.Damn, I wonder if Strelok went to bed. Well, the good thing about these civ's is that they're durable at least, and perhaps he has time off tommorow.
>>41862397We can always argue like congress until he gets back.
>>41862397We swapped the prisoners with those tribals or whatever. The ones we have now are the bandits.
>>41862448Oh, well then, nevermind. Fuck em.>>41862430Naturally. Hmm, let's see. Priorities, priorities.I agree with the anon from last thread who says we're not "thinking like bugs" when it comes to the insectoids. Truly, now that I think about it, why would bugs communicate through language or speech like humans, and not via chemical or perhaps psionic telepathy like bugs would. I wouldn't put psionics or chemical hivemind out of the question, especially since it's clear they were designed by Sherman to be workers/soldiers.Technology:Things we need to do -Research the Stealth Drones (working on it) [X]Research the bandit "gifts" (working on it) [X]Reverse engineer the Ray-Guns to be produced [ ]Civilization NeedsMap of the Island and our larger overworld map [ ]Setting up a secondary foothold on surface or underground (I suggest sniper outposts on the tops of the mountains close to our base) [ ]Of course we can always add to this
>>41862504We really should make a numbered to do list of this stuff so we aren't spending so much time trying to figure out what to do each thread.
>>41862547>>41862504We also need more power armored troopers... That is the whole point of this remnant faction right? To mech?
>>41862586Yeah, luckily we'll be getting that third action soonish. I suggest it be used to completely armor up our existing military to full capacity. That is, train all of them in the usage of power armor.
>>41862586The remnants are the kind of "jack of all trades" faction. They aren't outstanding at anything, but don't have any real weaknesses either.
>>41862613>power armored blitztroopers wearing hoverbike boots
>>41862638Yeah!Exactly my thoughts earlier this week. Gyrobikes can provide us fast movement capability to even our heavy troopers, we can model our surface assaults and methods via the german blitz and using combined arms.Including artillery and maybe even aircraft or at least attack drones.
>>41862663Could always try to figure out anti-grav propulsion for power armor or convert some of our walker tans into hover tanks
>>41862663We will have to figure out how to capitalize on our speedy raids. Fortunately we can practice raids on the fuckers that captured our men and vehicles.
>>41862586I thought it was to capture unsuspecting tribals and experiment on them with mutagenic substances?
>>41862688>>41862663We need to hover upgrade everything we have, possibly add hover research to the list.
>>41862712Kek, that breaks so many human taboo's it ain't funny anon.
>>41862638>>41862663We probably want our infantry to be firmly on the ground.APCs and armored cars should work pretty well though, especially in this snow.
>>41862723We have more or less become bandits already. We use bandit tech, we engage in slave (prisoner) trade, furthermore our biggest gains have come by outright stealing from other humans.
>>41862771Our infantry are wearing APC's and armored cars, we just need to upgrade their speed.>>41862806Man, stop making me wish we didn't go full Enclave by rejecting the scientist and making a worse enemy out of him.
>>41862875Then we'll need to get them tanks worthy of carrying tanks.
>>41862824Couple reasons. The units will bulk up their suits, which will get in the way of CQB. Not having traction against the ground might interfere with shooting. The units are an additional point of failure on the suits. They'll take power which, if they enemies we've faced so far are typical, we might need for more advanced weaponry.>>41862875Infantry, even powered infantry, will never be as well armored as vehicles.
>>41863055Eh, I don't disagree with you. But as it stands we currently lack manufacturing capability. And that kind of stuff is hard as shit to find.Might be some megacorp survivors or abandoned bases we could raid though, or just try and jury rig some together using salvaged parts. The bandits of the region have considerably more tech and we're on a science facility anyway, so there's plenty of opportunity everywhere to see how we can improve our infrastructure research wise.Mayhaps the robotic scientist might be exactly the person we need as a friend, especially in light of potential robotic assembly lines.
>>41863087addendum about the survivors, I suggest allying them and NOT raiding them.Unless they sell to bandits, then time to go full dredd.
>>41863055>>41863087Although I'm thinking about it again and maybe not. Using them kind of like jumpjets could provide some nice tactical advantages in the field, although it might mean they can't deploy by vehicle. I suppose it will depend on just how hard they are to engineer.Anyway, the bikes also had shielding units IIRC, so I'd like to develop that tech as well.
>>41863300They could close in on an enemy faster than they can react then deliver a hyperspeed punch that would rival even the most advanced rail gun.
>>41863381>refine the anti-grav point defence into anti-grav knuckles
>>41863413Now that is sexy

Rolled 43 (1d100)>>41877734Maybe, but remember he's just been working his ass off on that one project we told him to do since he got back.I guess we could hold off on giving him anything major for a little while after he finishes, but I suspect he'll want to get a look at the ray guns more than he'll want a break.What he asked for to help him finish the scout bot was an example to reverse engineer, so that's what we should give him.Might want to wait until after we talk to Glorianna first though.

If we manage to repair our relationship with him we'll be sure to pass along your message."
>>41879919Seeing as we are exchangeing contacts, ever met "a wandering man of handiness who hails from across the pond." That happens to excel in gravtech?
Bump. Let's see what I missed, I hate having to be distracted from this.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>41879652"Here's a question for you your highness, plain and simple.What can we do, in the most concrete, non-abstract, detailed terms, on our part to gain an alliance and good faith with you and your forces?"
Rolled 36 (1d100)Also I hope this isn't strelok sleepy time. Speaking of, while diplomacy goes on and if we have base actions, I still support. >>41859301
Rolled 32 (1d100)Disregard >>41880050>>41880570This is what we should ask>>41880292Sort of doubt she knows about Old Man Zan, but he's worth mentioning I guess.>>41880625Didn't think of that, hopefully he'd give us some warning as he did last night. Maybe he just had to leave for a while.
>>41880986Yeah, he has a new job and all and mentions he needs his sleep to get to it. The game may be piecemeal until he gets a day off or something, but it is still the game.
>>41880570My guess would be sworn loyalty, retainers of some kind or tithe/tax/payments of some kind.Also, and not limited to, works of envy, parties in their honor and nothing wrong with some entertainment as well.
>>41881192Well, we're Not!British, a monarchical head of state shouldn't be unusual to us.
>>41881192Not a bad deal if there's a tech exchanged involved, and after all, the early Kings of England held their position often through consent of the people as opposed to heredity.
>>41881749>>41881621>>41881192If the queen gives us any sort of recruitment gift, or even just a promise of military assistance when needed I'm down to join her. Seems like she has her shit together and though a bit of an extrovert her intentions are very clear.
>>41882176I wonder if she might be interested in having a King with a Sword.Or as it stands, a King who IS a Sword. And a fellow technophile.
>>41882355Heh, I think that will end up like one person said about her being crazy. The guy comes running back to base and you see things blowing up in the background. Ah what fun that will be, seeing lovers dealing with each others 'quirks' and what not.>>41882176While clear at the moment she does have 3 personalities (Shy/(hiding something?), Prideful/selfish and Wrathful/(Alpha Animal?)) and that could be a problem for stability. Less we forget what the ghoul said about things underground gaining power above once again.So many things to think about... Like I wonder why hiding of our location was a big problem that needed hiding from 'her' the Prideful one?
Bump for Swordxcrazy Lady
>>41884800You realize inorder to make that happen the two of them need to end up in the same room. She will not come to us due to our location and I would hardly risk sending sword out into the world unless he personaly requested it, not that he can't handle it, but Because he is too valuable and has at least 15 turns of reaserch ahead of him.
Rolled 8 (1d100)Wow, I don't know how I didn't think of this earlier, but we could ask her about the Fall. Just a general "What can you tell us about the Fall" could potentially net us interesting info, as we know literally nothing about how the world ended.We might want to do that for our second question instead of asking what she wants from us (our unconditional fealty and adoration)Heck, we could ask her what year it is, since we don't know that either.>>41884800crazy ROBOT lady. The 'robot' part is important, as it denotes both what she uses and what she is.>>41885276I don't think they're being serious. Maybe. Either way Sword and Gloriana can just talk on the radio. If he wants to talk to her at all.
Rolled 77 (1d100)bump
First chance we get she'll (she is a lizard mutant) need to have a Dirk in the back. I'm getting some Alice in wonderland vibes from her. She could be an okay ally but terrible enemy.
>>41886709You mean like the other mad scientist we already made a terrible enemy but would have made an okay (evil) ally.
>>41887066We honestly should have just allied with him and killed her when she shows up. I really dont like the idea of an faction who has a leader that is crazed about us being in her domain that controls robots.
>>41887519At least she's not evil, and a robotics scientist seems more suited to our needs than a mutant/monster scientist, which has specific taboo's towards other human factions in this setting.
>>41887762You think she ISN'T evil? My dear friend, we only have our conversation with her to go by and she seems far from good. I 100% am in favour of allying with her. It will do us a lot of good. But we will probably have to remove her at some point and we should plan for that or at least be cautious

The seedling incubators and fertilizer tanks are expanded, aquaponics enhanced, and overall growing space is nearly doubled. Then we stumbled upon some old semi-corrupted notes in some of the computers in the hydroponics area. The notes are difficult to read, and Strelok can't seem to detect their presence, but they seem to suggest that there's some way to actually expand the hydroponics bay physically. The files that would instruct one on how to do this exactly are too heavily corrupted to access though.Either way, food production has been greatly expanded. Water consumption has gone up apace, but with the automatic snowmelt collectors that shouldn't be an issue.>Research the Bandit ArmoryYour military members and scientists set themselves to cracking open and cataloging the Bandit Armory. The armory is quite extensive and surprisingly high-tech for coming from bandits...then again these were bandits with gravbikes and shields. Everything from some strange personal shield units to strange magazine fed squad artillery weapons to strange guns that fired cones of FUCKING ELECTRICITY or RADIATION were represented.

>>41914771She'll be holding much cock bruvLove me some robot hand jobs
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>41907824What makes you think you can produce them?You chose a bunker. Bunkers are moreso repositories of awesome stuff than they are makers of awesome stuff. Towers are the ones that come with less awesome stuff but more of the ability to produce it.Now to be fair because of your fluff you'll have a massive headstart on producing them but unless you get manufacturing equipment you'll basically be making spare parts sufficient to build a new one and then assembling them painstakingly by hand. It's doable, and because vehicles are terrifying deathmachines it's even viable, but it's far from the best way to do it.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>41917240>>41907824If we're going to produce vehicles, it should be war walkers to help us take Graphon Tower for ourselves.Although if we're going to be manufacturing anything, it should probably be more power armor and advanced weapons, including heavy weapons that require power armor for a normal human to be able to use.I'd like to reiterate that we need to get more AI upgrades and unlock the full potential of our base, it may include manufacturing equipment.Also yay Strelok is here!
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>41917632Power Armor is extremely difficult to manufacture. Like, being able to manufacture power armor is large-faction endgame tier type shit. You can't produce it except with actual materials (no resources allowed), which means either burning very-hard-to-get supplies, or having an intact supply chain for everything you'd need, or being a Think Tank. Your handful of power armor suits are worth a king's ransom to most, and the 25 you lost to Sherman were worth a small fortune.Now what was the consensus for actions?

Rolled 5 (1d100)>>41918303>Research/Develop Winterized GearSo our members went about looking into making winterized equipment and realized that somehow...no one in the bunker had a goddamn clue about how to make good cold-weather gear. They went outside and tried all sorts of shit from covering our vehicles or troops in synthetic wool, to exothermic chemical reactant packs, to covering and vehicles or troops in hot water. On the upside we discovered a lot of ways NOT to stay warm on top of a freezing mountain, on the downside we hit a goddamn research wall.Then someone thought about searching the base archives.>Discovered: Winterized Template SchematicsThere were blueprints for winterizing literally every piece of gear we have in the base, and even some gear that we don't have yet. Better yet it's all simple and easy to do, and designed to be manufactured and done with the equipment we have on hand. On the downside, winterized vehicles will be much more susceptible to heat damage if they're operating caveside rather than topside.What would you like to winterize?>Continue Ray Gun researchRay gun research continues apace.

Rolled 64 (1d100)>>41920190Obviously someone with ambition, so the first step is a public announcement for the position, weeding out the ones not-interested.The next step might be as simple as a public oratory competition, someone who can use their tongue very well.Other would be if they are informed about the peoples outside of our base in any way, if they have any knowledge or connection with Graphon tower.Also they need to actually be able to judge the value of items and equipment from a distance or even from description, knowing the difference between faulty junk and actually valuable items. It may be they need a degree of engineering or technical skills.The last step could be a contest. Each person ought to be given something of an unknown value or make, perhaps the parts the something important mixed with useless junk. The first person to successfuly barter and trade for enough parts and figure out the usefullness of them gets the position.Bonus points if they can turn useless junk into something even more useful, thinking outside of the box an all.

Command has announced the formation of a new pseudogovernmental position during this period of martial law: Minister of Foreign Trade. Assessment for fitness for the position will take place in Anteroom 2C, followed by a general vote on the candidates. Please report to Anteroom 2C if you are interested in the position."Your assessment center was shortly inundated with candidates, from former used vehicle salesmen to simple shop clerks and more it seemed like most of your civilian population were there. The assessment opened up with a simple test of estimating the value of various objects as a weeding out measure. Some technical problems occurred without a system of currency in place anymore, but they were minor and smoothed over quickly. Approximately 3/4 of the hopefuls were eliminated at this stage, with several people making ridiculous estimations of the utility value of simple towels or bottles of water.Next came a "selling" contest where the prospects were given an assortment of objects and told to attempt to sell one to a committee of their peers. This further reduced the number of potential candidates, as several simply couldn't make the sale. A handful of candidates, including a former industrial sales specialist and unexpectedly enough a dockworker, excelled at this competition.Finally there was a public oratory competition among the remaining candidates. None displayed any particularly intense oratory ability aside from the industrial sales representative, but few of the performances were particularly bad.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>41921225The distinguished dockworker had a surprisingly charming performance that spoke to the laymen, while the sales rep was better able to create a sense of urgency in his audience.A vote was held, and ended in a tie between the Sales Representative and the Dockworker. It falls to Command to cast the deciding vote.>Choose One for Minister of Foreign Trade-Industrial Sales Representative-Dockworker
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>41921302-DockworkerI vote for the blue collar man
>>41921302Hmm, tricky question. The sales representative would probably be helpful in making trades orally such as over the radio or convincing peope.Dockworker may or may not have better "hands on" experience with items and their usefulness and utility.>>41921440I think. . .I'll agree with this.

Rolled 94 (1d100)>>41921302>Have someone in Power Armor go out and feed the Mute-Mutt.A lone power armored figure shuffles its way across the moist grey stone of the stalagmite-dotted cave floor. The air is hazy with a slight fog, and the figure drags a slab of meat the size of a cow behind it by ropes. A pair of eyestalks sit on the hunk of meat, with small claws on chitinous arms occasionally emerging from where their legs are and sawing off a morsel to devour. They stare at your soldier.A small distance away, obscured by the mist in the air is a silhouette of a large quadruped. Disgusting gulping, chomping, and wet swallowing noises can be heard from its direction."Alright now Hemson...just chill out. It's just a huge mutant monster twice your size with razor sharp teeth and fucking mindpowers. No big deal..."The mist clears and the Mute-mutt is revealed standing aside a large, mostly devoured carcass. It stands as tall as Hemson in power armor at its shoulder, and its grey-brown bulk ripples with powerful muscles and is studded with the occasional prehensile spine. Its mouth opens to rip a chunk of meat from the carcass, and several rows of vicious looking teeth are revealed. Now that you're able to take a closer look at it, it seems that in several places...there are human torsos incorporated into its form."Hoooly fuck."The Mute-Mutt turns towards Hemson and opens its mouth, spilling out a long tongue and causing a cascade of bloody saliva to pour onto the cave floor."Hey at least you guys got my back right, eyestalks?" Hemson looks back towards his chunk of meat for the reassuringly omnipresent presence of the eyestalks.They can be seen scurrying off into the distance with a rapidity they've never displayed before, their odd scuttling gait causing them to bounce up and down as they eat distance to the nearest stone pillar. They continue on even as Hemson curses at them through his integrated loudspeaker.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>41921719Hemson turns around back towards the Mute-Mutt to find it standing immediately behind him, maw sitting in the air far too close to his helmet for comfort and still drooling. Hemson freezes stock still for a moment, before reaching behind him and dragging the chunk of meat to his hands. He eventually gets it into his hands, and gingerly places it in the monster's mouth. Seemingly pleased by his offering, the Mute-Mutt backs away from Hemson and lays down on the floor nearby to enjoy its newfound meal with gusto. One of the human heads may or may not've winked in Hemson's direction, it's difficult to tell from the video feed."Phew. That went better than expec-">PFC Hemson has lost consciousness.

Rolled 8 (1d100)>>41923339>Ray Gun ReportThe guns are incredibly advanced in manufacture, bearing the distinctive precision indicative of Think Tank manufacturing equipment. When fired they emit a short energy pulse in near-infrared that is focused by several devices in the frontal cone of the weapon. The methodology of the actual pulse and focusing mechanism is rather brilliant. When it strikes a target it simultaneously ablates a layer of the surface and sublimates it all the way to plasma, causing a small explosion. and penetrates to cause deeper heat damage. The result is a concussive, prolonged burning effect that is particularly effective at penetrating natural armor and also has the potential to fry electronic systems due to interference from the plasma. A very nice weapon. Your power armor troopers will be quite a terror with them once they're all equipped.

>>41923793Fuck yes. Now all we need is to find the nearest factory or atomize the nearest motherfucker with a factory and be able to make more
>>41923793Fuck, we might need to totally rework our armor from the ground up just for that.Maybe we should plan it out.Power Armor Ulimate version:>Ray Gun equipped>Personal Shields>Anti-Grav jetpacks>Anti-Grav repulsors (throw back enemies in CQC)anything else?
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>41924206Oh...wow, that's absolutely terrifying.
>>41924206I think that would do, just need a solid number of them, plus we can use the drones been developed atm to act like eyes and ears for the power armour teams.Maybe develop a cut down power armour variation with a stealth generator, grappling gear and a big ass sniper Tbh all are a fair bit away but progress is good
How about stealth sniper drones? Fly them cut into the sky and have them pick off key targets. Also stick heavy weapons on grav bikes to use a heavy weapon platforms
>>41924602With a master roboticist of uncertain intentions and stability around, I'm gonna go ahead and say we probably want real people behind our weapons as much as possible.
>>41924834Not to mention how she specifically wants us to make amends with the scientist, whom we're already clear and distinct enemies with.>>41924602This is an excellent idea, I was thiking if we have artillery research we can put mortars on our bikes. Get them to make explosive hit and runs or fly onto high vantage points.
>>41924602Generally speaking hovertech/gravtech only operates near the ground. You'll have to find another way to accomplish that.>>41924885She more wants you guys not to kill each other than to be buddies. There are several ways you could accomplish that.
>>41924551>>41924206We totally need to go back underground and do more science lab raids for equipmet to research power armor integration.
>>41924913>Generally speaking hovertech/gravtech only operates near the groundBut what about our Nat100 walker repulsors?
If we equipt the drones with ray-guns we can use them as point defenses to detonate incoming missiles and shells.
