Rolled 90 (1d100)I forgot what day it was edition.Last time a young man named Petyr ran afoul of some unknown regs having got kicked out of the clubs. Tried to make friends with some supers but failed. Tried to come up with a way to impress a Super Genius but has yet to come up with a solution. Found himself questioning the meaning of life(again) before building a superb piece of technology that he is having great difficulty with upgrading for other purposes.Now he is in his lab and considering how does one improve such a piece of technology? He is lacking the answer which isn't surprising really. He is after all lacking a lot of things despite having so called 'potential'.So what is it he shall do and what is with this peculiar announcement?
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>42672702Greetings today students and faculty we have a special announcement today! As unexpectedly a supreme genius of the galaxy will be stopping by our own prestigious university! The legendary human Doctor of Clan Volker THEE one known as Richard. A bad ass MAD super genius who is able to channel correctly without harm or side effect! Not a single project or experiment of this good doctor has failed. He has come here today to for an exchange of info from our data banks and possibly even give a lecture in the meantime. All students are welcome to Richard's lecture which will be at the the auditorium after today's classes.""If your lucky you may even be able to ask a question or his possible interest. It is worth noting that to this day the good doctor has never ONCE failed in his work. He is a true genius among all super geniuses."
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>42672853Now what do?>School>Shop>Project>Switch>Other?
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>42672853>>SchoolWell if this Richard guy is so good it would help us to check him out.Maybe even study up on him before we go to the lecture.
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>42672853Attend the class of course! Learn everything!>Not a single project or experiment of this good doctor has failed. OOC but is this REALLY the truth Genie? I mean, Jesus from the first game holy shit we've had some spectacularly awesome failures.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>42673010Yes, but didn't those 'failures' always pan out in the end? That his is quirk he literally CAN'T fail despite being MAD. He has a MAD mutation which prevents it. Its the biggest reason why is so (in)famous. The guy cannot seem to fail at SCIENCE! Problem is there are limitations...it was that secret quirk of his that resulted in that stuff anon.
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>42673010>>42672954Pretty much this. Attend the lecture. Be sure to record everything about the lecture too.
>>42673125He did fail at stopping Clora Zel from getting to him.HEYOOOO
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>42673125Then we should attend his lecture. The ability to not fail at everything SCIENCE! is something we have to learn.Especially considering our existing scientific difficulties.
Rolled 77 (1d100)Attend the lecture
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>42673165IF it was SCIENCE he would of been fine...it wasn't though. Literally only ONE fucking way that could of managed to happen but alas it did occur...and once it did that poor bastard's fate was sealed. Karma is a bitch.>>42673181Its not something you can learn anon. A HUGE part of science is learning and adjusting from the mistakes made during the process.He is notorious suffer of MAD. Kicker is though supposedly he suffers a MAD mutation or is somehow able to control it.On a somewhat unrelated holy fuck is 4chan screwed now considering who took over...problem is there is jackshit for good replacements for anon /tg/ boards besides 4chan. Especially given how much /tg/ on 2x4 chan sucks ass which I was considering and tg chan isn't much good either...not sure what I am gonna do.
>>42673333>A HUGE part of science is learning and adjusting from the mistakes made during the process.We have the mistakes part down!Just the "learning and adjusting" part..
>>42673304>>42673143>>42673010>>42672954Looks like we'r all eager to see just what this Dr. Richard's lecture will be.
Rolled 92 (1d100)you decide to attend the lecture. There you notice a group of odd indivduals who were scattered around and escorted the doctor to the stage. There he didn't even say anything for a good half hour just looking around at all the people and aliens there before finally speaking."Science...what is science if not of many things? So how does one fail or succeed at science? Let me tell you this right now. There is NO such thing as failure and success in regards to SCIENCE. There is only disappointment and happiness. Negative and positive. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.""I have come here today to acquire data from the Combine in exchange for some of my own research meanwhile I figured I would do a lecture....anyone know why I don't bother being a teacher?""Its because those who teach in such number are a disconnected failure. They are stuck in their own little bubble and ignorant of how it really works outside that bubble. They are here because they CANNOT make it out there! I am not one of them.""Oh no I am one of the most infamous intellects in the galaxy because I know the truths and I cannot be stopped. Progress...cannot be stopped and it isn't always a good thing. Sometimes its a bad thing.""So why should you care about me?""Because I am simply put amazing.""Now why should i care about you worm?""Sure you may think you are worthy and have your reasons but why should I care about YOUR reasons? IS it not my own which is most important?""Some say I am insane and MAD. In response I reply that I no we are not mad but merely enlightened. Now how someone may handle that can vary. Sure some other so called super geniuses are enlightened...but can they really be considered enlightened? Are they not TOO limited to the ways of the norms? Its just they happen to be a bit more advanced in their thinking."For us so called MAD we are so far out there that not even those 'advanced' individuals who are the super geniuses can compare to our brilliant craze.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>42673853"amazing brilliant craze are we. So here I am to lecture...sure i can go about science, about myself, or about you. Sadly I will not instead I am here to talk about whatever I want and I wont be talking about that."So the lecturer proceeds to go on a tirade about the glorious of waffles over pancakes and whether or not breakfast should be sized which way.After that he talked about politics of all things and how super genius shouldn't ignore them lest they crawl their way up your ass and into your brain strangling it as well as your potential resources.He lasts warns of insights, of how things get 'twisted' to serve for stuff like war, and how different perspectives as well as goals will always lead to unexpected things.He ranted about craziness.He ranted about genius.He ranted about people.He ranted about people.He ranted about politics.He never once ranted about science.About himself.Or about those there.Finally nearing the end of the lecture when someone walked up to him and whispered something he nodded his head before speaking one last time."So that is all I have come to say. Now to a few select students I have sent an offer...of an internship. This offer is in regards to certain research which may be valuable. Its research on biotech...not any ordinary biotech. For you see this is research where me and a few of my esteemed colleagues including a personal mentor of mine will be participating. Naturally I sent a similar lesson to the Republic but given the morally bankrupt nature of the research I doubt we'll be getting some recruits from them officially anyway.""To this who get the message this is a longterm work occuring over your break period where one of my PERSONAL ships will arrive to pick up those who wish to go. You can even go when your done with classes and come right back!""Yes my ships are that fast so don't worry about running late. Though I personally suggest only going during breaks because of how time flies
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>42674049"Now with that out of the way I bet people want to know some secrets yes?""Fine I will tell some because I love how much people react and to see who gets pissed off.""A certain black site in the Combine is specialized towards multi specie integrated hivemind how dirty!""A Republic black site is in fact research bioweapons to use against Combine species at these coordinates. In fact the Mega Plague was them after all just as certain conspiracy theorists claimed!""Finally everyone sucks and life is unfair.""Goodbye suckers of life."What do?>School>Shop>Project>Switch!>Other?
Rolled 44 (1d100)>>42674128GET.THE.INTERNSHIP.Or rather, make sure we're arranged and able to go, both to actually be allowed to go and make sure in the short span of the break we are there we're not needed elsewhere.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>42674174Who says the offer was sent to you anon?
>>42674209That roll does. IT'S LINKED.
>>42674209Heh, I hope that your eating your own words. The dice do love that.
>>42674209>Who says the offer was sent to you anon?>Rolled 100The dice do
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>42674128Well while we wait on Genie. I taken in what was view as brute forcing to talk to aliens. To mean we can go hit the books and talk to people who study aliens to get some insight on AI and Aliens. Because they are the best at it and we sure as hell need help with AI.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>42674209Fuck you dice for disagreeing.>>42674244They DO like doing that.>>42674209You recieve a notice saying something was sent to your family for consideration and they have granted permission.invitation sent for the internship.
>>42674420We can, it will take some time.Mind you, understanding the alien mindset as a human (even a potential super-human) is one of the infamous "brick walls" we've encountered, notwithstanding the other stuff like impressing our schools Volk teacher, creating Super Tech, and Super Bio-fusions.Not to mention most of these are normal aliens, so that's an additional barrier. But studying up on it should be the way to go.
>>42674510BUT. If according to Richard, the "multi specie integrated hivemind" will potentially solve a lot of that issues, and chances are it also means we'll be connecting with other alien super potentials instead of just normals.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>42674488O cool we did get it. So I guess we better study up for the internship so we don't like like a total dumb ass.
>>42674584But we are a total dumbass, we just have a superbrain and are knowledgeable and advancely educated.
>>42674488Still writing Genie or do you want a new turn?
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>42674657While we a Generally smart we seem to lack the higher tier knowledge in good levels. We need to get more input! So we can build the robots and then we can get the ladies.
>>42674745We wanna get the ladies we gotta get into Ziji's class.
I wonder what Genie be writing.
>>42675261Probably nothing. They are probably going "well dam I have to think about how this will work out" or something. Not even paying us mind as we wait till they say something to have an action made like normal.
>>42675306The plot thickens!
Welp, guess we'll just night bump until Genie says we should vote or something.
>>42675831Sorry internet died and I had something to do.>>42674676Do need your turn. The message thing doesn't count. Would be lame if it did.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>42676149Hrmm, let's see.>>42676149Before we do anything, I want to try again if we can't get into Ziji's class next year.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>42676345Vote
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>42676345More input!
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>42676345Time to start learning about love.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>42676345Amazingly enough a Ziji WAS in their office...problem is it was the wrong one. Who unformed you that you needed to see their partner and get their recommendation first.Luckily you remembered to ask when they'll be back and the other Ziji told you that their fellow Ziji will be back tomorrow...maybe or today if they need to see this Ziji.What do?>Wait>School>Shop>Project>Switch!>Other?
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>42676767>>WaitMess around with buddy and see if there is anything cool to read on space net.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>42676767>WaitPrepare letters of recommendation from all our science and technology teachers if we have them in time.And prepare a speech about our love of machines and technology and improvement our passion.Talk about our dreams, our goals, our desires.To improve ourselves not only into a Super that we can perform science and create technology like a true super, but create machines and fusions, and not just any machines and fusions but SUPER machines. SUPER devices that are capable of boosting us as a super, not drag us down like regular devices will.Our goal to see Buddy become the best damn robot ever, to be worthy of being called a Super Robot and who can protect us and be piloted by our mind, to work in synergy with him!We've taken risks, gone into unknown territory, and made mistakes. But this is because we wouldn't let such things get in the way of our passion.Most of all, talk about our passion for SCIENCE!
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>42676941I'll vote this.
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>42676941Rolling
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>42676941You have prepared...but the professor has yet to arrive. Getting your letters lined up and preparing a speech. Sadly the Professor Ziji(other one) has yet to arrive.What do?>Keep waiting>School>Home>Shop>Switch>other?

Rolled 35 (1d100)>>42677513This
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>42677513Let's have a chat with our little buddy.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>42677513So you waited...and waited before finally deciding to work on Buddy's speech programming. You only managed to make some basic progress with speech. Its to teach it to talk but hard to converse properly or so you have concluded with your work. Eventually however the person you are waiting for hours later DOES show up...Mostly because you saw a figure dash into the office and a loud crash. When you went to see you heard one Dr. Ziji trying to tear the clothes of the other and the other Dr. Jizi complained saying they had company. The other Dr. Ziji looked over and noticed your presence before pouting while touching up their clothes and putting...'things' back into their lab coat pockets.Those things you are only halfway positive that they aren't actually lab instruments. After that the Dr. Ziji turned towards you and asked what the hell you wanted.What say/do?
>>42677811"I want to be in your class next semester Doctor and Doctor.I prepared a speech and have some letters, but I'm willing to go and let you continua ah. . .what you wanted to do if I just get a confirmation on the class roster."
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>42677868Heh
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>42677868Yeah, this will do.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>42677868Rolling
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>42677868All these poor ass rolls...you are SO lucky a roll wasn't directly attached to this. So you get another shot at it.

Rolled 25 (1d100)>>42678124"...You...YOU CHEEKY LITTLE-LET ME AT HIM.""Calm down dear," says the other Dr. Viji as that one shoots the other doctor with a zap gun."AFHISHFSFLS TRYTING TO-""You have to admit it IS a nice change of pace.

Rolled 32 (1d100)>>42678310Two doctors down! One more to go.And we still need to find a way to impress Dr. Volk.I DO have an idea though. We're going to go on a science trip to parts unknown on this planet. AND collect samples.But to get there, we're going to need some protection.>ShopSee if we aren't filthy rich enough to buy some kind of armored life support equipped observation vehicle.So we can watch Buddy and our other bots interact with various scientific anomalies and stuff on this planet from safety. And bail out if need be.
>>42678427I know not of what you speak anon...and for the record I never tried to write smut before. As is I only do some light teasers and leave the rest up to anon's imagination. Like the Richard and Clora'Zel incident among others.

Rolled 94 (1d100)>>42678310>ProjectI HAVE AN IDEAFOR SCIENCELet's research Collapsible Technology. The ability for a device to shrink and grow on command.Imagine being able to shrink or grow something at will? We could hold like, tons and tons of weapons and stuff in Buddy's robot body and it could help make him faster in flight by shrinking uneeded components.Or better still, we could hold the MK I in our pocket, throw it out when we need it and have buddy attach to it!If we can discover the means to compress and uncompress mass, we can put the technology into certain nanites or microchips spread into the metallic material and control them via waves.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>42678610Hell, go for it. Voting for SCIENCE!
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>42678610Sounds like fun
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>42678610Fine. A little science now and then won't hurt.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>42678610Collapsible technology as it turns out exists to a degree...there is just 1 problem. It isn't able to decrease the weight. So it weights just much as it had previously but in a smaller area.Its also expensive as hell otherwise cargo transports would use them a lot more.Now as for making your own...you did. Oh the joys have having your own private fully stocked lab, lotsa money, and professional personnel! Ah the good life it is....Now if only the shrink system itself wasn't so damned big.What do?>School>Research>Home>Shop>Switch>Other?
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>42678786Hmm, the ability to decrease volume but weight and (presumably) mass remains the same.Curious and interesting technology!I'm sure someone has already come up with the conclusion to make say, bullets. Force = Mass*Velocity. With this, we'll be able to fire a bullet with the weight power of a cannon ball, and since it's smaller than a cannon ball it's more likely to cause penetration into heavy armor. Even shields.Let's see if we can start making our own version of a cannon or magnetic railgun system for the MK I that can fire these extreme density bullets (higher metallic density should mean easier to launch via magnetic propulsion). Also make tests on high explosives too, such as loading grenades with these heavy pieces of sharpnel.Secondly, let's experiment what happens if we shrink the shrinking apparatuses.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>42678886I would suggest experimenting with Superheavy shield for the MK1, made interlocked shrunken plates, mixed in with extremely powerful anti-grav.It's denser and stronger than an ordinary shield made of the same material, and as a bonus he can also time it by turning off the anti-grav at the same time smashing it over somethings head, or using it like a battering ram.A power-hammer built aronud this concept would be good too. Light when throwing around, heavy when smashing down.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>42678886What do you think the more advanced gauss weaponry uses?Problem is the larger/heavier the object the less time it will stay shrunk. Another problem is the varying level of shrinkage, duration, and making it permanent effect. Which can vastly increase the cost accordingly.
>>42678886A magnetic centrifugal launch system would be better than a Cannon. It could save space and wouldn't to deal with recoil and wear from the heavy bullet. Get some powered magnets, put them in a rotating circle, and put the heavy shrunken cannonball in them. The circle will rotate with magnetic pulses causing the ball to gain momentum and speed, and when it's spinning very fast can be flung out by a powerful pulse at the right time.If you make it strong enough, you can put in more bullets at once, until you have a stream of them being fired out.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>42679032Pic and rolls
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>42679031Then for science purposes we should investigate these effects but shrinking different masses at different rates and then getting averages on how long each configuration stays shrunk and how fast they get unshrunk.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>42679073Actually, this seems prudent.>Make shrinking more predictable to us
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>42679032So....gauss shotgun or machine gun? Had those things ones since the Memor-wait I think those ones were the cruder coil based one because rednecks.
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>42679111Actually yes, though they would be closer to a tennis ball machine or the LHC. Have a circle, spin an object around it via magnets until fast enough and then launch with a final push.With a more advanced system we can account for unpredictabilities in unshrinking by having them eject objects that get to big before they clog the system.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>42679150>>42679073>>42679032I vote with these ideas
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>42679150>>42679073Let's go with this.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>42679167Seconded
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>42679111ehm ah yes my notes here state that they used coil based due to simplicity and their tech was based off more advanced gauss tech they had lot of examples of. However due to lack of equipment and resources they weren't able to build the better stuff so they made cheaper knock offs. They were very lucky in that they had intact power cells that were able to keep the man wieldable ones powered. Otherwise simply put there wouldn't have been a chance those things would of been able to be man portable.>>42679073This won by 1 vote.Apparently your own shrinking system actually differed a bit by according to the sources you found online...then again your system wasn't exactly a complete copy...Roll to see the difference.100 roll twice1 is worse in all stats80-99 longer lasting shrink60-79 cheaper shrinking40-59 choose two stats one will be increased while the other is decreased39-20 Shrinking cost is increased19-2 shrinking is doesn't last as longFirst roll taken only.Now what do?Same pick as last time if you need an idea.
>>42679314>choose two stats one will be increased while the other is decreasedHmm, tricky.On the one, if we increase shrink time but increase cost (I presume power) we'll be able to load more and the firing system will be more powerful, that means for the purpose of bullets more power.It also means melee weapons and other uses are more feasible.The downside is the cost.If we decrease the cost but decrease shrink time, we'll be able to shrink more and maybe even install the system into the MK I itself. Allowing it to shrink stuff at will, not just its ammo and weapons.But only for a little bit.Useful for cracking things open I imagine, say, shrink an AP shell and fire it into armor, and then watch it grow back and crack the armor and widen the breech. It would render melee stuff and other flexibilities less feasible however.
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>42679397I meant for you anons...should of clarified that moi bad.Only reason melee is still feasible is because of fucking speedfreaks, close quarters combat, and magic/psi(strangely not as much as you would think as it also works the other way around) as well as advanced armor/shielding.Yeah cost=power in this case.
>>42679397I vote shorter shrink times but a cheaper system. We'll just shrink the shells when they're needed and fire them as AP rounds, penetrate and then grow back.Also means we can have fun if we make it powerful enough to shrink other things too, like say a piece of armor or a ceiling support or generally fucking shit up by inconsistent size.
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>42679486Eh, I'll back that.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>42679314>Now what do?I support the shorter shrink time but cheaper cost. Set up a Gauss system where a container of AP Explosive shells are funneled into an onboard shrink-ray in the MK I. Then in the time we have, they are circled around the centrifugal magnetic launch for as long as possible and then propelled at great speed toward the target.The high weight plus the density of the shell should allow excellent penetration, which from the short shrink time will grow back into regular size, and as an afterthought also explode whether shrunk or big.Thanks to cost reduction, this should be feasibible to fit on the MK I without extremely weighting it down.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>42679565Vote.
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>42679565This, but can we make an actual shrink ray weapon next?
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>42679565Roll
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>42679508Shrinking cost is increased. Your shrinking system consumes more power then usual...>>42679565Research commences on such a weapons system. Unfortunately our shrink system isn't what we wished but thankfully with some time we SHOULD be able to adjust the shrinking duration.Sadly however the weapon system isn't exactly small due to the shrinking and power constraints.Nor is the weapon itself even completed yet!What do?
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>42679633>Shrinking cost is increased. Your shrinking system consumes more power then usual...Aw, but we voted the opposite. I got the feeling you'd pull the switcheroo on us.Looks like it's longer shrink times then!>>42679633>Nor is the weapon itself even completed yet!Upgrades!Let's put our brilliant minds and our helper bots on the job. Between us thinking for them and giving orders, and them working for us, we should come up with something good soon

>>42679751>tfw no MADIt'll only happen if we ever figure out how to make it work for Richard, or become a bandit.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>42679751Time to come up with more power.Hmm, considering that we can shrink items longer but at added cost, perhaps a more compaq battery system?We can use laboratory shrinkers to shrink larger, batteries to store energy. Since energy can't be created or destroyed, the batteries will be equally as potent big or small, meaning we can hold more energy in a smaller space.The increased weight of the batteries should be offset by their power, and the system can be used to eject empty batteries or batteries that are about to get big again.

Its like though...if you increase the size that would increase the mass no? So in order to succeed to do so you would have to use extra energy from the ray to somehow convert it into mass...but not just any mass. It has to be an effective copy.Or you increase size but not weight or mass?Or something.Honestly its a massive pain....especially making the ray so small...maybe if you could like the shrinking process but in reverse?What do?>School>Research>Home>Shop>Switch!>Other?
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>42685605>...if you increase the size that would increase the mass no?Not really. Well, I mean, you don't HAVE to.It's like the shrink ray, it decreases volume, but mass and weight remain the same.One version of the grow ray can do the opposite, increase the volume, while mass and weight remain the same. Which means a pencil the size of a tree should still weigh a pencil (also be incredibly fragile and light, possibly like a giant paper mache thing.)If we have the ability to alter mass and matter, that means we can work on a second type of shrink ray gun that actually decreases mass by disintegrating extra matter.Let us investigate these four types.

Its refreshing.""I know right?""Fine this way...""Say you wouldn't happen to know of any ways to improve my skills would you?""...As a member of the living naturally you are limited with things that the living to require to function properly.""Yeah but what about skills?""...I would have a solution however you will need a special device or magic to use properly. For now I know of a few who can help.""Seriously?""Yes...you are aware of things lost to time?

Who have countless more experts on the subject and unlike the living are a lot less occupied?""...You undead fuckers really are a bunch of broken as fuck cheaters.""Admittedly us undead are only a fraction of all dead. Not to mention it can be tricky contacting and getting the dead to help. They sleep hard and can be less then happy when they are bothered.""Still though fuck you guys...so wait you DO know of a means for me to improve?""Yes.""...how?""Besides instruction what do you know of life and death next what their evuivelents be for your devices? Are they not however easier to fix the 'broken' or should i say 'dead' tech?""Yeah. Much easier then bringing the living back compared to inventions.""Hm yes...now what if you made the 'broken' instead of fixing undead?""...what?""As in improvement why fix when you can animate it? Bring it a sense of false life despite how broken it is?""...undead tech?""Exactly.""...uh...huh. I don't know...""Do not always have time to fix or maybe is impossible to fix yes? So why instead of bringing back to life you make undead?""Yeah but HOW would you do that?""Are you not a super genius?""Yeah but I ain't no mage.""Why not?

Its why I am so sneaky.""Ah possessing tech?""Doable. Ever heard of tech ghosts?""...Fucking hell you can do that?""Yeah how do you think my goodies function? Besides you should see the ghost tech instead of possession.""Thats a thing?""Yes...sometimes even naturally occurs.""No fucking way...""It can. Kinda similar to how all things have spirit or soul.

Rolled 24 (1d100)>>42708169Off to work!In other thoughts, I wonder if some magic person/alien can give us temp undead like state for studying.
>>42709766Not bad.A better long term solution is the true bio-virtual fusion, perhaps a virtual reality where we can think (and therefore read) even while we're sleeping so our body and mind rests, but our consciousenss learns.Alternatively we learn more neurology and how to engineer memories, upload books digitally and then download them directly into our minds.
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>42708169You suddenly remembered you had an internship that you have yet to show up for. So you hurriedly hustled over to where the pick up is and notified a stationary figure who once he saw your internship qualifications brought up a device that he than spoke into...shortly after a strange ship jumped out of FTL whose pattern and design you were completely unfamiliar with."So how long is the trip and how long before i return?""...Very quickly if you have need of attending alert one of our personnel they will alert you when its time to go back and you'll be returned in time.""Even if its the next day?""Yes.""...How fucking fast is the FTL you got?"The FTL drivers equipped on this ship is personally made by the great Dr. Volk. Either it is personally designed, engineered, or modified by him. Its quality is not to be underestimated.""...So madtech?""Yes.""Fucking figures goddamn mad bullshit," you mutter as you board the ship before take off. Soon enough the ship departed once you boarded it and you were handed a hard file for you to peruse. You were not allowed to copy it or hold a digital form however and once you arrive it will be handed back.The file is apparently on the word that will be done...which is biotech. In particular research on one of the many different bio-menaces throughout the galaxy. The research in particular is on guided mutation and the design of entirely new genes/forms of life from scratch...this is some extremely high level stuff.In the document you were also alerted that the facility you would be going to is a black site at a hidden location in deep dead space...here you are expected to work as one of the super potentials brought along to be guided and hopefully unlocked. For some reason a number of the super geniuses there were VERY clear on that sorta thing. As is it was extremely unusual that even Dr. Richard Volk was able to get in despite his notoriety and skill.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>42709890The project is based off a migratory bio menace that apparently picks up many different lifeforms making it a treasure trove of extremely diverse mutation and life. Hence why it was selected for this particular black site. The research appears to be going VERY well...they have already made a number of interesting breakthroughs. Sadly though those are mostly experimental and one time. The next stage will soon occur where they will attempt repeats...which has proven to be failure ridden. The very diversity and unpredictable/unstable nature is making it a living hell to successfully repeat trials with the same results as the former.Its bad enough to be giving even the super geniuses a headache...so they are working on a new project of research involving some kind of 'guide' for it. Hoping that if they succeed in some kind of guide providing oversight that the trials will provide the same results as previous ones....problem is its proving VERY tricky to manage over such a diverse form of life. Its proving a challenge to even the supers present who apparently are quite enjoying themselves over it.Especially given the previous trial hell that they just ended up suffering through...You got through the outline of the file by the time you arrived. What you saw literally nothing but empty space in a great void between the major systems and spacial bodies...pure nothingness until you passed through some kind of field.Suddenly a great big installation appeared and drifted into view. There the ship you were on approached and docked. When you disembarked you notice that suddenly you were surrounded and escorted by an entire squad of super soldiers...They really weren't kidding about the black site status given how well hidden it is and the truly absurd security. For fucks sake who ever heard of someone deploying an entire SQUAD of super soldiers for escorting a simple goddamn intern? Downright freakishly excessive and impossibly wasteful it is...
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>42710016After being promptly teleported out of nowhere(you didn't even notice a device or caster nearby). You found yourself in a viewing wing overlooking a operation being done involving a strange lifeform in the form of a combat trial. Apparently you weren't the only intern there you were busy watching taking notes or following the directions of this strange overseer. Who upon noticing you gave the simple instructions of 'make yourself useful and if all else fails just ask first'.The trial didn't end well apparently considering the hissing of a few of the researchers when the super soldier succeeded before getting teleported out. Oddly enough the super soldier squad was still escorting you...and everyone else also apparently had their own form of guardianship present.Its kinda amazing how they are so good at staying out of the way but at the same time hovering over them in case anything happens. How do they manage to not get in the way?What do?>Ask a Intern>Ask a Super>Approach a guard>Approach a personnel>Try to make yourself useful>Switch!>Other?

>>42710105I want to ask about the combat trials. Specifically if there are different tiers of them and what they test for.(mentally wondering if maybe in the future we can use this as an excuse to try the MK I suit against a lower level bio-form menace)
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>42710187It would seem hard to predict what the workers are doing but they seem to be quite limited to a certain stretch of activities per the worker in question. The stuff they do is neither simple or repetitive as otherwise bots seem to handle the work.The interns for the most part seem to either watch and take notes or run errands for whomever they attach themselves to.You 'sorta' got it but you really wished there was a common theme of action that you could decipher.What do?
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>42710636Ask around if we attach ourselves with an intern willing to partner up, or rather, anywhere that might need two or more interns. Be nice to have a friend here we can work with regularly, maybe even a group.Otherwise keep making ourselves useful, and just keep note taking. Make sure Buddy in our pocket is also recording this for later.

Rolled 2 (1d100)>>42711099Well shit
>>42711099Uh. . .still need us to decide or will we need to let the crit take precedence.
>>42711116>>42711139My roll not yours.BIG difference.>>42711176You guys still need to decide.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>42711204Look around for any interns working with1. SUPER Neuro-bio-tech and related software (brain mods, human-computer interface, virtual reality, brain surgery/construction, etc.)2. SUPER computers/AI3. Undead (you never know)4. Love and emotions (ask around if anyone here has heard of the Ziji couple. This one is more of a fun one)
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>42711293Or even if we don't find anyone working with super tech. . .non super variants of those will do.

Rolled 73 (1d100)>>42711366Seconded
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>42711366Thirding
>>42711293For the record, these are "or" qualifications, not all of these four are inclusive.But holy shit if we found an intern who matched two of those or more.
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>42711366sorry bout that was making myself something to eat. Now quick post before my poor ass dinnner.>>42711293You found 9 total interns who are of interest to you. Two appear to be hanging around the neurologists. Two are working with the computers/AI. Two are undead that you noticed so far. Two of whom when you asked around are a loving couple who actually DID know about the Doctor and Doctor Ziji they appear to be working on something in regards to pheromones, chemicals, and emotion.You also encountered a intern who appears to be an engineer working on supreme technologies contained within the facility. Oddly enough that one ISN'T dealing with a whole lot of biotech.So who do you wish to team up with?
>>42711883Gah, choices. There's always that wildcard too.I suppose we have to pick only one team right?Uh, how long will we intern, long enough to work with each of them for some amount of time?
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>42711883I vote the Engineer, supreme tech is awesome.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>42711883I say the neurologists.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>42712090Let's meet the Engineer
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>42712090Engineer
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>42712090Fine. I'll switch to engineer.Still want to meet those neurologists and also the loving couple later.
>>42712145just popping into this thread to say:"spy's sappin mah sentry"
>>42712219Dagnabbit anonSpy around here
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>42712090"Ah so your the new guy huh? Ever wonder WHY I am the only intern engineer?""...no.""Because dummy i no we work for Dr. Volk. Whose primary job it is to keep this place running and develop the tech to assist in the biotech.""...Fuck.""Yeah I thought so too...used to not only be me. Now though I am the only one left.""Double fuck...""Not all bad. After all we work with one of the few super geniuses here...sadly it IS the mad one though.""..Triple fuck.""Nah its cool. Most of the time the MAD stuff is only dealt with those Victims...don't ever join their roster. We meanwhile work on the other stuff that wont drive you insane.""OH FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS!""Yeah...still your technically interned under the local Dr. Volk as in the one really infamous one who suffers from the MAD mutation.""So is that way he designed to join this project?""Fuck if I know never dared to ask. As an intern though you can go meet and ask him questions. You can even ask him for stuff or favors at times.""Seriously?""Yeah.""Why the fuck isn't other people sign up?""...you ARE aware we work for right? Someone who is SO fucking notorious that even coming from that notorious Clan he is notorious even among them. You wonder why people avoid this? Some galacticly notorious MAD super genius from a Crazy Clan?""...Oh so that shit is actually the consolation prize.""Yeah pretty much.""So how did you end up here?""Honestly I wanted to see the kinds of juicy tech that was floating around here that you know was actually FUNCTIONAL unlike the biotech.""Oh...thats sounds reasonable found any?""You kidding this place is stuffed FULL of it! Sadly I can't make heads or tails of most of it. Oh free tip when your offered the slav-ahem victims accept. You need their disposability for a LOT of the requests. It WILL save your life and more.""Why not use a bot?""Some of the places we work is bot inaccessible also we're cheaper and more replaceable."
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>42712339"...Really I mean REALLY?""Yeah you any idea how expensive black tier bots are?""Still though can't believe we rely on slave labo-""Not technically slaves.""Then what are they?""Disposable assets and partially redeemable failures.""...That is more messed up then just simple slaves.""Yeah...i am like 99% positive those victims would actually be a lot better off being simply enslaved.""Most of the from Volk's Clan hands them over to us and sometimes we have dumb asses who sign themselves up thinking they are actually gonna enjoy a much better gig. Seriously though you should see some of the stuff that is done to those poor bastards...""So cannot I like change my mind?""Nah your signed up already. Don't worry though remember THEY are disposable trash We aren't! If you have a hard time sleeping at night just remind yourself that you are still human and death is often a merciful fate for them.""Fucking hell what the hell is done to them?""You ever wondered what happens to those things that are experimented on, survived, but aren't considered a success but still useful enough to not simply put down? Now make them suffer from MAD experiments from a infamous crazy clan's MAD super geniuses. Sometimes they aren't even native clanners just some poor sap who signed on the wrong roster or more simply was kidnapped.""...That just ain't fucking right and I am from the Combine.""Really now? I am from the republic so what do you do with them?""Kill em because at that point they aren't nearly useful enough to keep around given the risks you would have to be insane to think otherwi-oh nevermind now i get it."What do?>Work>See the Doctor Volk>Go home>Explore>Switch!>Other?

Rolled 23 (1d100)>>42712614VoteAlso new thread soon Genie?
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>42712614Let's meet the Doc.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>42712614Rollan
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>42712614>>42712614First thing is first now that you are working for the guy...you will see him and get your due while you still can. So you rushed over and found out that Dr.Volk is completely available. His guards though...they were some strange super soldiers. You went into his office and see a surprisingly young map laying back on a chair staring at the ceiling."Who are you and what do you want? I remember you from the lecture and are some rich scion or something oh wait yeah I remember your elder sister is an evil bitch.""...I know.""Yeah I feel yah you should see my sister. So I know where you are coming from.""Yeah but you ever got fucking lobotomized by the bitch?""...Ouch. That didn't happen attempted rapes though and set ups oh yeah.""...Your sister tried to rape you?""Well not personally she just sorta arranged for me to get raped.""The fuck man?""Comes from being a part of my Crazy Clan. Happens a lot actually.""The fuck?""You know sometimes you get too distracted and there needs to be new generations to replace the old and dying ones...sometimes you gotta force it.""By raping each other?""Well yeah with the dash of new blood of course.""I-I haven't heard a single good thing about your Clan.""Thats because there isn't any. Anyway what is it you want?""First how do you know my sister?""Long story involving my own pain in the ass sister. Where do you think that psycho surgeon came from? Apparently the two know each other or something. As for me knowing her i know her through my sister...rather not talk about the rest.""Let me guess attempted rape?""Yeah...its literally complicated though. As in even I don't know how far it goes though. I could know but I would rather not when it involves my sister with that sorta stuff.""Even when it involves yourself getting raped?""Actually I am FANTASTIC at getting out sexually related jams consensual or otherwise. Its really quite the gift. So what you here for?
>>42712868>Actually I am FANTASTIC at getting out sexually related jams consensual or otherwise. Its really quite the giftBide your time doctor>So what you here for?"If you want an official reason, to give the courtesy an intern is due to the professor they are working for and to meet you in person and say what an honor it is to be your intern.If you want the real reason, mostly to talk. If you have the time Doctor. I was very touched by your words, really, about how there aren't any failures in science, only happiness and disappointment. That really hit close to home, I made some more of my first supreme tech that way, a shrink ray and I'm glad I made it. My only regret is that whenever I make supreme tech it seems to be during flashes of supreme inspiration *cough* crits *cough* , not measured and controlled progress. I haven't yet found out if I can make supreme tech without those random bouts.Me? My biggest happiness is to one day make a very important Super Tech. A Super Fusion Computer. One that I can enter my mind into and unlike normal fusions which will slow down a true super, but as a normal can boosted by a normal computer fusion, a Super can be boosted by a Super Computer fusion. Be able to do many things at once, without splitting my efforts but multiplying it, acting through bodies not just robots but organic androids. I wonder if I'm not the first to desire something like that.If you're up for it I would like to ask about MAD. From what I know of MAD, the only people who can live with and use it without harm are Bandits, and yet here you are with a mutation that lets you get MAD but use it to an advantage. I've. . .mistakenly gotten too close to MAD myself. Well, making others MAD mostly, but close to affecting me. I must say I find that exceptionally interesting."
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>42712868May we ask about your transformation from a potential to a true super genius? How did it go for you and what did you do?
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>42713044"...hm not really ever seen as a professor.""No matter how far you go flashes of inspiration are critical. However the fact that you indeed succeeded in creating a piece of super tech would mean that you are in fact a super.""Such tech already exists...supreme varieties are however much rarer. Such tech comes at great cost and grave risk however.""...You wish to know of MAD? Bandits? Pirates....yes I suppose but without harm. MAD is both a good thing and a bad thing. I supposedly suffer a mutation of MADNESS. Which can happen...though I believe that due to the very unique and unpredictable nature of MADNESS combined with the differing persons...everyone has their own form and hence mutation of MAD. When people say that somehow I suffer some unique form of MAD a mutation of it is bullshit.""Not really. At most i can detect you got a bit of MAD tech inside you but thats it...truth is though all geniuses have to walk along a very thin line. Those who succumb to MAD simply failed at it. Sometimes it happens before you are even born. Sometimes there are things that you aren't suppose to know not ever or not just yet. It can cause harm learning it too soon.">>42713063"I was born a super genius. I never 'transformed' into one."
>>42713408>Such tech comes at great cost and grave risk howeverHmm, care to share? I would like to know more if you know about it.>When people say that somehow I suffer some unique form of MAD a mutation of it is bullshit.It's not very often you hear of non-pirates who are MAD but don't spread it or negatively affect them. I mean, I'm pretty sure if I went mad without that kind of mutation it wouldn't go near as well as it did for you.>I was born a super geniusSome people have all the luck. We potentials gotta unlock ours. . .but I've yet to find out how.--Oh, one more thing Doctor, I'm sure your Engineer has been of great help, and I'm going to be helping him too now. Anything you want to say to me besides be sure to follow the Engineer?
>>42713408Also the auto-sage is on. Need a new thread Genie? We could just use this one until it 404s. Got some tasty questions for now.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>42713638No new thread. Haven't been feeling healthy enough to do marathon again.
>>42713747Alright, take a break Genie. It's been fun, I'll archive this thread.
>>42713618"Costly to create and by creating more you...enhances chances of someone exploiting the access. Increasing intelligence beyond your limits make it easier to realize something you should not...makes it easier to go insane.">>42713757Hey I am still here.
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>42713770"Thats a fair word of advice. Thanks doc."Bid the doctor thanks and goodbye, and go back to work for the Engineer we teamed up with.Continue to work until either we have to do sometihng else or we get some freetime. Maybe until we can temporarily shift and talk to some of the other interns and help them.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>42713618>>42713770"That is because MAD is rather rare compared to ordinary crazy. As for how to maintain control during mad...well i will say its MUCH easier then going back sane again. That is something not even I am capable of...""There is a way to...force it. Assuming it goes right nothing bad happens. In fact hooking up a brain to certain super computers can forcefully unlock their super potential...or you know drive them insane or something.""Interns are like slaves...in places that you know 'make slavery illegal'. Of course its one of those nifty tricks they use to circumvent that little problem.">>42713816"There is a reason why I dare not use such enhancers and copy methods. Risks are not worth the reward in such a case as I.""Otherwise i would do it."
