Welcome back fellow fa/tg/uys, before we pick up from last night, I’ll run through the system we will be using to clear up any confusion .I am are using a d100 system, where higher is better(You will not be informed of the DC), I’ll call for d20s on specific tasks and I am running a system which uses a disadvantage roll; this means when I call a disadvantage, I will ignore the first succeeding roll.I am mixing and matching genres from novels to movies and comics; however, I am borrowing heavily from Alien vs Predator: Extinction (a really good game, check it out.), and Colonial Marines( a really bad game don’t play it.), for the Xenomorph strains we may eventually evolve. We will have upgrades and evolutions soon and I’ll flesh that system out as we delve further into it,.I’m working on a tech tree and am close to a workable model, feel free to offer any criticism or advice on any topic; be it my writing style; story arcs; flavour text, or length of posts etc, as anything that will improve the quality of my posts will be appreciated immensely.I want to give a shout out to SpookyAnon, for his outstanding drawfaggotry.Any other Drawfags, please feel free to chip in please sign your work, as I want all the credit to go to those who worked hard on their OC.I’ll stick around at the end of the thread for a few minutes to answer questions and talk about our current arc, and PCs etc.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sentient, Hive PCs: 5/8Dildo: Drone Commander.level 4Dildo, our first Drone to hatch is one of our most capable Xenos, having tussled with the big Maori,smartgunner George and come out the other end worse for wear, Dildo is now riddled with scars; bullet holes, now healed over, a missing finger on his left hand and a skull resembling the surface of Terras moon, Dildo is our most battle hardened xenomorph. As the 2nd eldest of the Hive, all other Drones defer to Dildo in combat and will not question or disobey, unless Spooky is giving orders.80 HPHardened carapace: 30 ArmourPerks:Fear: Smart guns.Mineral Enriched Exo-skeleton.Scree!: Warrior.Level 2120HPThick carapace: 125 armour.Perks:Mineral Enriched Exo-skeleton.

PC Perk tree. Corrosive Exhalation: Cystic (acid spitting) drones mutate to exhale large clouds of corrosive vapor. Hostiles caught in enclosed spaces suffer acute respiratory distress unless they are wearing respirators. Chitinous Bulwark:Purestrain Xenomorphs mutate heavy protective plates over their skulls and shoulders, this mutation reduces flexibility but renders all small-calibre fire striking the front of the Xenomorph completely ineffectual. Thermobaric Surge:When ignited by flamethrowers or other thermal damage based weapons, Xenomorph warriors and runners explode violently, spraying both friends and foes with shrapnel. Mineral Enriched Exo-skeleton: Naturally occurring carbon fibre re-enforced bones and carapace during ossification, flat bonus of 15 armor units. Anaerobic Overdrive: Xenomorph warriors can greatly increase their strength for limited periods of time, however all that energy has to come from somewhere. When activated- -20 health, +20 to attack rolls.Spore Factory: Drones can mutate to turn their own bodies into mobile spore factories strengthening all friendly Xenomorphs in their proximity. -20 health to Drone, 2d6 damage reduction for all Xenomorphs fighting alongside it. Continued...
PC Perk tree continued.Kamikaze: Drones with the Kamikaze perk can trigger chemical reactions in their own bodies which break down the mucus membranes protecting them from their own blood after successfully grappling a human sized target, melting both drone and victim into an unrecognizable mess.Battle Hardening:Xenomorphs who have survived more than one battle begin to grow stronger carapaces. Addition of 5 units of armor per battle, to a maximum of 50. Auxiliary Nerve Ganglia:Xenomorphs develop multiple redundant nerve bundles and can survive massive injuries, provided they are returned to the hive immediately. Caustic Spores:Hive web produces irritating spores which cause painful irritation in the eyes and lungs of non-Xenomorphs who come within 5 meters of the hive web, impairing their fighting abilities unless they are wearing respirators of some kind. Hydrosulfuric Spray:When critically injured or killed, warrior Xenomorphs limbs or bodies explode violently, splashing nearby enemies with their highly caustic blood, enemies struck with the blood are distracted by pain and the choking smoke produced by the acid.Fear:Any Xenomorphs with this perk will have a specific fear of a certain thing/human/object/place, until it is overcome.Fear applies a disadvantage when rolls are made against its feared thing/human/object/place.LARGE:Xenos with this perk cannot use ventilation shafts or move quickly through tight areas.This perk ALWAYS comes with STRONG. STRONG:This Modifier ensures no rolls are needed against destroying/damaging/breaking through structures or vehicles, made from Human alloys.You hit harder, run faster and throw further.QUEEN strains:The BOSS:Can command ALL members of its hive at distances up to 50km away(Can be increased).The Matriarch:May lay up to 20 eggs every 5 hours, d20 determines how many are unique[Praetorian, Genophage etc.])Continued once more...
Spooky; Unique:I Think therefore I am:Is smarter than your average, bear! Capable of Human levels of intelligence, reasoning and logic, which extends to all under her control, after long time exposure a small group of Xenomorphs under Spookies control will eventually come to sapience, permanently.
“Power systems in the green, hydraulics online, yep. she’s good to go boss!” a voice announces.“Take’r out, lad. We’ve got to get these loaded before 0900.” The reply comes quickly.A tall, bulky exosuit steps away from its moorings and stomps slowly and loudly towards several heavy steel crates, the sides of which are marked with bright yellow and black biohazard symbols, the lids bolted down tightly with 2 inch thick, steel nuts.The exosuit pilot swings his loading arms down skilfully and in one swift movement picks up the immensely heavy container.Curiously the pilot asks “What are in these things anyway, naturally grown nukes?” he laughs to himself.Quickly and quietly the 2nd man’s voice cuts through the radio “Shut your mouth, you know damn well what’s inside that thing and you know what happens to people who ask too many questions around here, just load the 5 crates and lets go.”Confused the pilot states “5 crates, are you sure it says 5 sir… There are only 4 here!” The loading technician who was giving the orders, quickly walks over to the crates and starts to count them, not satisfied he counts again, then looks around the empty room hoping to find the missing container, he speaks “Oh…someone clearly fucked up back at HQ, I’ll call this in, finish loading those other boxes.”Somewhere deep within the bowels of the station an engineer enjoying his lunch break slips of to sleep, behind him just out of sight in the darkness of the rafters, a rotund, slimy, ovular object opens, and a large spidery hand emerges….------------------------------------
Fixer crudely picks up the radio and speaks “NeEd evAC, tOO many!”In response to Fixers bluff you hear “Acknowledged, Librans Pride has been notified, hold tight and set up a permitter, 9 hours until evac, we’re coming for you, no man left behind, Corporal. Hicks out!” Silence fills the room.You bring your spoils back to the throne room and begin preparations; Spooky reattaches herself to the egg sac and begins the gestation process.The drones and warriors curl up on the walls and rest, time to heal up.ChatterBox saunters over to Spooky and speaks to her “My Queen, I was successful, from now on all of our eggs of regular eggs will produce 2 facehuggers, and I had time to inspect one of our royal eggs, luckily they proved more resilient to my explorations and we have not lost one, I ask you my Queen, are you familiar with the Ravager strain of the Praetorian genus?”Spooky would smile if she were capable of doing so…We’re going to time skip until the first drop ship arrives, after which you guys can tell me what yu did prior to the landing party of 27 marines.A) Free form.
>>43440163Spam spores everywhere and seal rooms with webbings, to make it difficult for the marines to move around
>>43440187You don not have spores yet, those I posted are perks you can apply to the 8 xenos you guys will name and level up separately to the hive.
>>43440044Howdy Penal man, Something interested as we keep growing, Give pastbin a try so the Perks and other stuff can we stored in the main post as a link.Might look shitty but helps >>43440071>Warrior name REEEEEE, Sister of Scree>>43440114>after long time exposure a small group of Xenomorphs under Spookies control will eventually come to sapience, permanently.UH BOSS, DATS BAD FOR US.>>43440163Lay Webbing Everywhere/seal rooms and lock doors with webbings with spoersHunt down the last few marines2 Ravager to be laided/mutatedMake fake Hive-sites with eggsEgg traps with webbing fucking EVERYWHERE. Stick eggs on the ceiling, in closests, vents, ectAttempt too learn how too communate more and try to find a way out of the building.
>>43440208Greetings my Salty companion.I'll be throwing everything into a pastebin for next time, as you for:>after long time exposure a small group of Xenomorphs under Spookies control will eventually come to sapience, permanently.Don't be a dick and I'm sure your 7 other pcs won't fuck off or betray you.Also, too streamline this only 8 PCs at any one time, we can kill some, or bring others into the fold if one were to die, but a whole hive of named Xenos would probably be enough to melt my brain.
>>43440265Whelp, it was nice knowing this hive while it lasted. How was everything this day/sleep/whatever the fuck time it is there?We can stick eggs in places are perfect for ambushes and won't set off the motion sensor correct? Also is there a way to get our queen to lay MORE eggs then 20?
>>43440360Yes, we can have ChatterBox look into making our queens eggsac more efficient.We can have hundreds of Xenos at any one time, but we will only have 8 named PCs, for now. We'll see what everyone thinks about more later on.Eggs won't set off motion sensors and if i recall the correctly facehuggers are too small to set off motion sensors.The hive have 32 eggs 5 of which are Royal.Using the OP map from earlier where abouts did you guys want them set up?
>>43440402The horrible red color is where too smack eggs down, However instead of putting things in the open. Slapp'em in the ceiling and also in the landing bay where dropships land.How long does it take for Chatterbox to look into making our Eggsac more Sacky?... Make sure all the vents are webbed, expect for the exits. This way the face huggers can survive and live in the vents too swarm the enemy marines once they appear.Also 2 eggs into Ravagers or is our colony to small still? We do need a bullet shield after all and they'll be coming back with 27 guys at a time..and flame throwers Do we have any Hosts left?
First thing we should do is raid the mess hall and move all of the food/water supplies there over to the nest. Have everyone fully fed for that vital energy, you know? And then...we could go the the bathrooms, take all the soap, and spread the soap on the floors near egg traps, and maybe run lines a foot off the ground to trip people with too. People slip/trip, set off an egg, and get fucked
>>43440501I'll start a write up and put a down for ChatterBox.Eggs don't go straight to ravagers, you need to evolve Praetorian into one.You do have 5 eggs however, and if you want I can ret-con one of the hosts you guys impregnated into a Praetorian host if that's cool?The eggs would probably be spotted if you left them in the open near the landing pad. I'll set up traps around the red spots and in 5 minutes I'll drop the next write up.
>>43440504I'll assume that you guys already moved all the food to your Hive earlier.
>>43440504Only after posting this did i realize that i was suggesting home alone tier traps for xenomorphs. Something about that makes me chuckle deeply. Maybe we can rig up some more traps like that. A tripwire that fucking throws a table from the messhall at a marine. A big rug or blanket that conveniently ends near a ventilation shaft, where a xeno can pull it and trip everyone on it.
Oh, we definitely should see about jury rigging some of the marine armor into shit that can protect our weaker units from bullets. And we should pass on the knowledge of how to use all of the marine weaponry, and then try to get the smaller guys (drones) used to using them?We can also lay grenade traps, we have a few.
>>43440540Does this mean I should get working on drawing up a Ravager?
>>43440540Jeez I'm playing that game later today. I'd personally like the re-con ONLY if we don't fucking have any hosts left.Then Slap them in the rafters or something. I can't remember for the life of me what the hanger looks like. The thing is simple, WE'RE ALIENS SON. SUPER SNEAK IS A GO.>>43440566>Implying this dones't match with Cunt, Calling marines cunts.>>43440595..Do we know how to do that though?>>43440599Howdy Spooky!
Use our gained Knowledge from the marine CO to write "Colonial marines Go Home leave ours." on the ground on the ground outside the landing pad doors.
>>43440614We know everything a college educated lietenant marine would, so i assume!
>>43440614God damn waiting for this thread to finally go up was a drag, glad to have arrived early instead of an hour late like yesterday.
Did we ever get those straggler Colonials?I say we need be playing elevator music, full blast, over the intercom. Give the place a comfy atmosphere.
>>43440632KEK do this Imagine how spooked they will be
>>43440595Human weapons are too unwieldy and small too be used effectively by our current Xenomorph strains. If you have ChatterBox research the tech, however, you may be able to protect yourselves better or morph strains capable of using them later.>>43440566Anon please, you're killing me...>>43440599Snap to it boyo, 'cuz I feel you guys are going to have one soon. Fucking metagaming ss13 xenos.>>43440540ChatterBox pipes up my Queen, I forgot to mention, I took the liberty of exploring the production of your eggs and have found a way to increase our yield and decrease the time between gestation within you.(40 eggs every 3 hours, give me 3d40 for royal yield and 1 d20 for white eggs.)Spooky has the Hive begin setting up traps, moving eggs around Colonial 1, Content with your preparations and with the looming threat of an assault on your hive imminent, Spooky tells Dildo to begin setting up ambushes.Dildo takes the 3 young, adult warriors, the 2 young Drones, Raptor, Fixer, Scree and marches makes haste…A) To the mess hall.B) Split into groups and cover multiple insertion points.C) Send a scout, then make plans.D) Other.NEW ARRIVALS:3 x Warriors.2 x Drones.1 x Praetorian.
Have everyone talk constantly while we work. Make those voices match up perfectly with human ones.
Rolled 38, 11, 35 = 84 (3d40)>>43440632Etch it the hanger bay floor and doors with our acid blood>>43440633Fair point, Forgot that.>>43440641Ya I know, Fucking OP being a Penal colony on the other side of the planet sucks.>>43440668Dice roll for Royal
>>43440671Base level Xenos will never sound completely human, you know, having a second mouth instead of a tongue, but you CAN evolve different Xenos later on capable of doing so, sans second mouth of course.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>43440668roll for white eggs>Send a scout, but have the rest split into groups for the time being. We'll go from there once they arrive.>>43440675Fuck ya me, Look at all dem eggs.
>>43440668Doesn't a robot made to infiltrate xenomorphs use a gun?
>>43440657Nah man we should have Scree!Sing this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR8gi_gWy4M over the intercom to the tune of Xenos Hissing
>>43440668Right away!Also B, but in the vents, so we have more freedom of movement. I'm assuming that since the number of humans that can be fielded is somewhat limited, they'll probably stick together in one or two large groups, so we shouldn't ambush them until we can attack them from multiple angles at once.
>>43440675You guys have 84 regular eggs and 36 Royal eggs, or you can decrease the number of royal eggs and add more normal eggs.>>43440692Sorry no more whites yet.>>43440694I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand.
>>434407093 drops ships will be touching down soon, with 3 APCs, and 27 Human marines.
>>43440720Ya we need Ravgers to cut open the APC's. Can we bump it somehow too 3?Also OP can we smuggle the fuck outside? I don't think you ever said anything about the outsides world.. Can we go outside too hunt for pray?
>>43440668>>43440705Right then: D) >Search the colonies music library for intercom music.
>>43440712http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/JeriA xenormoph infiltration android, which has been shown to use at least some guns effectively.
>>43440705No way! it should be the White xeno with a tongue that Sings although i would prefer this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULMQGLmipjU
>>43440720Oh shit, they're going all out. In this case I think we should make a stab at baiting them into a relatively whole group and leading them on a marry chase through the facility, whittling them down with the egg traps as they pass through. At that point we should then bottleneck them in the fusion plant and assault them from all sides simultaneously.
>>43440751wouldn't they just blow the Fusion plant rather then let us kill them?
>>43440734Finally, someone asks to go outside. I've been waiting a while to post this one.>>43440740Oh cool, I never knew about this.Thanks for bringing it to my attention >:)>>43440736>>43440709>>43440736>>43440751Write up in 5.>>43440773Fusion plant is offline and would require time to restart, homefield advantage goes to smart Xenos.
>>43440773Dunno. >>43440720OP, would the humans try and blow the reactor out of desperation?
>>43440784So, does that mean we CAN use some of the weapons?
>>43440668Preatorian: BoudiccaWarrrior #1: Paul HoganWarrior #2: Patrick BatemanDrone #1: Radiohead
>>43440784Also, if/when we get a Ravager, I demand we call it Bulk SquatThrust. These things are walking slabs of muscle and armor.
>>43440818I accept that Spooky, I'll back that.>>43440784Send 1 warrior and 2 drones out into the world for recon and hunting pray. We NEED fooddddd
We can have 3 more Xenos named and added to our PC list, if you guys feel we can keep track of more later on, let me know, but for now let's stick with 8 unique PCs.You have a Praetorian adult in the throne room, what do you guys wanna do, because you will not have enough time for a Ravager to be born before the first wave lands.Dildo orders his Xeno subordinates into groups.You have 3 groups, Dildo and two young drones, Raptor and Fixer, and the 4 warriors.Dildo sends both of the young drones out to simultaneously scout both the landing pad and the outside of our Station.Drone 1 heads up through the medical ventilation shafts and breaks through the darkness into the blinding light of the midday sun.The ships are over the horizon and closing fast, you estimate they will arrive in under 10 minutes, but due to the small nature of the landing pad, only one ship can land at a time, the rest may have to rappel out or take turns moving and dropping Marines. There is no where for the APCs to be unloaded and used effectively.Drone 2, makes a haste to the residences beneath the armoury, climbing out from the ventilation shafts and into the warm sunlight you see a great forest stretching before you. There is lots of movement to the east as you are able to discern easily that the land is ripe with hosts and food.A) Observe. B) Explore the forest.C) Move your ambush parties where?D) What did you just say about me you little-(Gorilla warfare time!)
>>43440873>D) What did you just say about me you little-(Gorilla warfare time!)I HOPE DILDO IS SUITED UP AND READY FOR SOME ACTION
Did we ever use that level up and assign a perk?
>>43440873We've been on a jungle planet this whole time?I thought we were out on an asteroid or something. huh.
>>43440873Send Drone2 to check out the wildlife from a safe distance, and considering the humans are getting ready to land, we should start the Ravager transformation, perhaps we can use our established terror tactics and the egg traps to buy it enough time to emerge after the humans have already entered, at which point it will move to cut them off from the escape routs and we can slaughter them indiscriminately.
>>43440873Get the Praetorian too aid in the defense.Keep Drone 1 there too watch what they actually doDrone 2, Go find us more hosts for the queen. Look for new scents and keep too the shadows.Move our Ambushing parties once we actually KNOW where/how they are entering.>>43440892That...honestly seems like what dildo would do at this point but with a smart gun.
>>43440915I applied it and i'll be dropping a pastebin in a sec with all of our shit.http://pastebin.com/3JdahgLg>>43440916Yep, I mentioned earlier that Humans can survive outside with no suits, but no one really asked to explore outside. Oh well.>>43440921>>43440920Okay, i'll go for a dart and when i get back i'll take the next 2 posts and do a write up.
>>43440945>votes for my statement.>>43440921>>43440947Kek
ChatterBox, would like to know what Spooky wishes he focus his attention on for research purposes!A) Drones.B) Warriors.C) Larvae(eggs, facehuggers or chestbursters.D) Praetorians.C) The Queen herself( spooky or her egg sac.)
>>43441012Praetorians, we have a LOT of royal eggs. Once this battle is over we're going to have plenty of hosts for them.
>>43441012Praetorians, We need too atleast make sure THEY remain loyal no matter what.
>>43441036>>43441027Write up for next move coming.ChatterBox acknowledges Spooky's request "Yes my Queen, i will begin looking into the praetorian strain right away." (d100)chatterbox unfurls his slender pink tongue and pounces on the large Praetorian and begins probing and exploring the large Xenomorph, mildly amused the Praetorian stands to attention.

Rolled 13 (1d100)>>43441089>kills egg
>>43441098>>43441100Dildo decides to wait for intelligence from the scouting parties before setting up the ambush.Outside by the landing the pad drone 2 watches as the first marine ship lands and it’s hanger bay opens, 12 marines rush forth and take up firing lines, another steps down and starts giving orders as the dropship lifts off and makes room for the 2nd to land.“We have lost contact with recon teams 1 and 2, we know that one of our teams is holed up inside and a sizeable enemy force more than likely occupies the research station. WE CANNOT use nuclear options, the town 20 kliks North would be destroyed and we aren’t fucking Weyland-Yutani, You 12 are Bughunt1 and will insert through recon 2s entry point. Hop to it ladies, let’s bring our guys home!”The 12 Marines salute, acknowledge the orders and begin moving towards the staircase leading to the Medical facility where recon 2 entered.Mean while:Drone 1 scurries off into the forest, headed towards the where it saw movement earlier, upon reaching a clearing you notice a herd of 25 herbivourous mammalian animals, standing at 6 feet tall they are an impressive presence.They are no more than 2 kilometres from the hive.A) Have Dildo set up the ambush now you know how the marines will behave.B) Wait for the 2nd drop team to land.C) Observe with drone 2 for longer.D) Have Drone 2 attack the mammals.D) Other.We'll find out What ChatterBox learned soon.
>>43441163>Have Dildo set up the ambush for the first wave of marines>Drone keeps watching for the 2nd dropship>Order a warrior to go help Drone 2 in attacking the Mammalian aliens.
>>43441172Seconded, also Ravager pic is about halfway done, should finished pretty soon.
>>43441172>You have 3 groups, Dildo and two young drones, Raptor and Fixer, and the 4 warriors.How do you want to spread your forces?And you have a Praetorian up in the throne room who can come and help.
>>43441194That Praetorian should be in a evolution egg boss. We're buying time till it hatches.>>43441192Badass>>434411942 Warriors too back up each drone group. Have the Drone group attack each side of the marines wither through vents or anywhere else we can into that they have trouble following.
>>43441163Send drone 1 to the Town 20clicks North for initial recon (and if we fail here at least he survives)Rest of Warriors and Drones should make a trap for Bughunt1
>>43441232Anon I don't think they know we have a Queen yet, We're fine too escape worse case into the wild life. Sure we've lost everything but facehugs can survive long enough too repopulate.
>>43441245No one has seen Spooky, or mentioned a Praetorian, ChatterBox has informed you that his memories from the host suggest that the USCMS USS Librans Pride, believe this to be an isolated outbreak.
>>43441258In that case we should definately start the Praetorian mutating and keep it in the nest so the humans don't know about it until its too late.
>>43441258Yup, We're keeping the two of them hidden for as LONG as fucking possible then. We need to make them think that for as LONG as possible.
>>43441282>>43441279Back up at the landing pad Drone2 watches as the 2nd ship lands and drops it’s precious Human cargo, 12 more marines you hear a similar speech and watch as they make their way towards the mess hall instead, it appears that the only two ways up to the roof are through the mess and the medical bay, interesting.The praetorian, forms a chrysalis and begins it’s arduous transformation into a hulking mass of muscle, sinew, and talons. Boy are the marines in for one hell of a Christmas.ChatterBox tells the Queen that he has learned much about the royal strain, and that if he were to tinker with a Praetorian egg, he could either increase the size of our Royal strains, or implement the carrier genome and allow our Praetorians to force a mutation into a lithe, gangly, pale Xenomorph, capable of transporting safely and securely our facehugger young, whom will be able to survive indefinitely isolated from the hive.he asks you what you would prefer, he begin working on. (D100 if you say egg)Dildo breaks the group up into 3 teams, Fixer and Scree!, Raptor and 2 warriors, and Dildo takes 2 1 warrior for himself as back up.You make your way to the medical bay, the and set yourselves up the same way you did when first encountering Recon 2, Dildo has the warriors take up positions around the door and near the roof, and Fixer, fixes the lighting issues you have inside, as in to say Fixer destroys all the red lights around the room. The medical bay is pitch black.After a few minutes light begins to cut through the darkness, bouncing off of the metallic walls from behind the breached doorway illuminating the darkened, lonely corridors. Eventually you hear the quiet footsteps of 12 marines as they begin to make their way into the room.None of them have nightvision goggles, and all have their breast lights blasting out some incredibly concentrated lumens.A) Have Dildo…B) Have Drone 2…)C) Spring the trap.D) Continue to observe.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>43441350We must spread our progeny, evolve the Carrier strain. D, wait for them to start running into facehugger traps, then spring the trap on them, get in a few attacks and retreat towards the nearest unsprung egg traps.
>>43441350I'll support >>43441381Glad we put the egg traps around. We're the worse type of a smart one.
>>43441350I sincerely hope we actually used the soap to slip up the floors. And made things to trip people at ankle level. AND PUT CARPETS OUT TO PULL OUT FROM UNDER PEOPLE.I need to home alone this shit.
>>43441410Anyone else want some Xeno: home alone edition shenanigans?>>43441399>>43441381Okay going with carrier genome.Egg Traps exist within the med bay, map incoming so you can see how everything is set up.
>>43441432how could we not want that?
>>43441432Anything that slows the humans down and weakens their numbers is good for us.
>>43441432We do it for the quren
Oh god damnit, someone needs to do up a pic of Home alone 2 with Mcaulay Caulkins head cahnged to a Xeno and the 2 antagonists changed to Marines.Also using the OP map of colonial one can you show me where you've set up traps, be reasonable and mention on the battle map I've supplied where you set up the egg traps.
>>43441432Sounds like a Good Time. For Us. Not the Humans. It sounds terrible for them
>>43441497We are outnumbered, should we wait untill they have spread up or just take few of the last ones - like motion sensor?
>>43441432Did we figure out how to tie knots? A few paint cans swinging from the ceiling is a necessity, and well as a few burning hot door handles.
>>43441514The plan was too wait until they hit our eggs. While they panic to get the face huggers off. We sweep in, kill who we can and then retreat too the next layer of traps.
>>43441518They are marines, not idiotic criminals. I do not think they will not care that much about our distractions when we can do far worse as Aliens
>>43441552You see, the distractions open them up to facehuggers.They slip, and look up to see a facehugger egg opening up.They burn their hand trying to open a door quietly, and kick it open instead. The activity activates a few eggs on the other side.etc.
>>43441552You aren't thinking big enough, man. Imagine the confusion and innocent christmas spirit we could imbue them with!
5 minutes until write up, there are 10 eggs in the room.Thread seems a bit quiet tonight, do you guys wan to pause for the night and pick up again tomorrow?
>>43441617Just waiting for the writeup and working on the Ravager. Anything else we should be discussing between write-ups?
>>43441617This is cool, lets continue. Awaiting writeup with anticipation!
>>43441617it would probably be more active if we didn't do this at 2:00 AM pacific
>>43441617I'm heading out op. Its 5 here. I'll be back later maybe.be safe you Cheeky dickwaffle>>43441629east is best coast.
>>43441629Next week should be better I'm on 2-10 shift, so I can start late night Aussie time and go longer into the day for our American friends.Okay, so Looks like you guys want to let the facehugger wave thin the group before springing the trap, give me 10d10 and then I'll finish the writeup.
Rolled 9, 4, 2, 5, 4, 5, 3, 7, 5, 5 = 49 (10d10)>>43441695
Rolled 8, 10, 6, 6, 10, 8, 10, 3, 9, 4 = 74 (10d10)>>43441695get.WRECKED.humies.
>>43441617It might be because of just how many things we need to keep track of. There are just so many xenos/enemies now that I for one just wait for everyone else to take care of the combat side of things and just interject when I can make a stupid suggestion. I wouldn't be surprised if others do the same.
>>43441714Oh shit this guy blew my roll out of the water.
The Marines with smartguns begin sweeping the room, their eyes peeled for hostiles in vents.As the motion sensors ring out every so often, picking up nothing of note.Around the room attached the roof 10 eggs all open at once.Using a means of primal synchronicity, they leap. “MOVEMENT, WE GOT MOVEMENT!”4 riflemen spin on the spot and look for movement, they shoulder their rifles as the 1st wave hits and fire, 2 marines are grappled instantly and go down, 4 facehuggers explode in the air, their trajectory carrying the caustic blood forward,their innards dowsing the room in an acrid smoke as their blood begins to eat through the medical bays metallic walls, 2 marines scream out in immense pain as the blood hits them, 4 facehuggers find their marks, but are held at bay as 1 of the amrtgunners fights for his life.2 marines down.2 marines injured.1 smartgunner grappled.3 riflemen grappled. 2 un harmed.A) Spring the trap. 3 d100 for each team.B) Other.
Rolled 93, 79, 74 = 246 (3d100)>>43441823holy fuck, twenty facehuggers all at once. They aren't going to last long even if we leave them alone!Time to spring the trap and ruin their day, then.
Rolled 21, 12, 77 = 110 (3d100)>>43441823SUPRISE MOTHA FUCK.
>>43441854https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzEemp1SLOMNow we need a xeno version of this, with marine cops
>>43441823Scanning the Ravager pic, this shit takes a while but it should be ready by the time our Ravager emerges from its cocoon.
>>43441854Write up incoming, was just video calling my fiance' and son.
>>43441894The facehuggers fight their marks, and eventually break the grapple, ending the struggle.with 6 marines out of the way, and only 2 smart gunners left, the 4 warriors break their cover and pounce, 1 smart gunner goes down to combined might of 3 warriors whilst a 4th Warrior Scree! bellows a warcry and charges the final Smart gunner, the Woman swings around too fire, and is promptly tackled from the side by Raptor, having overcome his Fear of smartguns.Dildo Slinks down silently and sneaks up behind one of the injured marines and lashes out with his tail, ending the foolish Humans short life in an instant.Fixer, fixers the other marines broken outlook of being alive, he is a talented fixer this one.3 dead.1 marine injured.6facehugged.2 unharmedA) Press the attack.B) Another volley of facehuggers(2 per egg remember.)C) Other.
>>43441944Lets try and take the two marines down alive so we can ensure they don't get off lucky shots and kill any more facehuggers.
>>43441944PULL THE CARPET, FIXER.EVERYONE ELSE GANGBANG THE UNHARMED.
>>43441960Need 'em alive, drone take down or facehugger take down?2d100 for Drone.10d10 for facehuggers.
Rolled 65, 50 = 115 (2d100)>>43441983If ten were opened earlier, there should still be some facehuggers around, right?
Rolled 79, 72 = 151 (2d100)>>43441983Drones.
>>43441989Four got shot, six found their mark, so we still have ten left. They'll not live for very long, so perhaps we should let the remaining two call for help, and draw another group into the room quickly.
Rolled 6, 94 = 100 (2d100)>>43441983Drone take down to provide food for the chestbursters
Rolled 5, 4, 9, 5, 10, 7, 6, 10, 3, 6 = 65 (10d10)>>43441983If the ten remaining huggers need a roll, here it is maybe i guess?
>>43441989Yeah, you have 20 facehuggers in total, 4 destroyed, 6 hit their marks, and ten are still in the eggs waiting.>>43441991>>43441989Okay quick write up for this one, as I'm off to work in 10.>>43442011Sweet, nice roll, fa.m.
>>43442015Oh, the twins didn't all come out simultaneously? Weird that some would wait in their eggs still.
>>43442015Thanks for all the great work OP, your threads are always a treat.
>>43442018You can choose when using eggs as traps to fire in volleys so to speak, so you don't blow your load on a bad roll all at once.For example, if you rolled lower than 4 for every d10, that fight would have gone very differently.>>43441944With only 3 marines remaining, and the battle clearly lost, they make a break for the door, screaming into their radios “AMBUSH, AMBUSH, EVERYONES DEAD, THEY FUCKING KNEW WE WERE COMING, HELP HEL-“The Marine is interrupted as a facehugger leaps from the shadows and buries it’s proboscis down his throat, arms wrapping tightly around the cranium and its tail straddling the neck, the hive grows.The other 2 marines turn to fire and are pounced by Raptor and Dildo, their weapons knocked from their grasp, Dildo and Fixer Hold their heads still as 2 more facehuggers impregnate the luckless fools.4 casualties on your side, an entire Marine fire team, obliterated with barely a shot fired.What do you want ChatterBox to research?Discuss in this thread and I’ll put it in the pastebin for tomorrows OP.We’ll leave it here for the night.I’ll hang around as I get ready, but I need to leave soon.
>>43442045Research Chestbursters. If we can get them to grow faster when born, we'll have a massive fuckin army in the middle of being invaded.
>>43442062If I remember correctly, we can get twin chestbursters as a product of cyst-spitting drones. The cysts infect targets struck by them, and as a result any infected person spawns two chestbursters instead of one.
>>43442062Oh, a thought just popped into my head in regards to that. What if we altered it so that the tumor repurposed ALL the cells of the host? That way, there's no corpse left over that they could eat and leave a bloody mess behind of. The host more or less BECOMES the xenomorph, probably not quite full size, but still a lot more formidable than the average chestbusta.
>>43442078Still need to do cyst-spitting first. Also nice pic again Spooky. We gonna cut there apc's ip real goodWork on that reseach? >drone research
>>43442083That was actually dropped from the original Alien movie, originally the Alien could mutate a human into a Xenomorph by cocooning them, however that was dumped in favor of the Chestburster. The problem with that is it will reduce our available food supply.
>>43442089Yep, researching cystic drones also gives us a straight shot at some of the chemical warfare perks I suggested in the previous threads.
>>43442093I think it would waste more of the energy to be derived from the host if you ate it instead of just mutated from it.Digestion is actually very terrible for converting what you eat into energy to be used.So, with that in mind, I think it would be more efficient overall to have full conversions instead of just chestburster-sized conversions of cells.
>>43442108I don't think so. We're already optimized killing machines. Converting we really don't need too worry bout that. Chestbursting is still our best way and allows us too hide the bursters before they egg up
So, real talk, where's this game going to go?If we manage to expand further the mechanics of the thing will have to change to a squad based strat game. Eventually we get the whole planet and we move to Civ style play.Alternatively, we get nuked and go back to the single alien RPG it started as.Personally, I think I'll end up getting bored and less attached the larger the scope gets, desu.There isn't much to do anymore other than rinse and repeat the same scenarios over and over again; We find Marines, kill them, get more us, they send more them, ad nauseam.How do you guys feel about it? Do we need a quest/endgame? And if so, what kind of scale are we looking at? Planetary or Personal?
>>43442121Optimized killing machines does not translate into optimized eating machines. recall the following: primary consumers get about 10% of the energy produced by autotrophs, while secondary consumers get 1% and tertiary consumers get 0.1%, much is lost in digestive processes.
>>43442127Fucks wrong with you? We're in it for the long haul. I personally can't wait too find out wtf is up with our dna and what other hives think of us.>>43442131I just woke back up. Apologizes. Has there ever been. point in the show/movie/games were this method failed us? Food will never be an issue like this and we see get our desired outcome.>>43442045Fuck happened with drone 2 and the warrior sent out to hunt the animals?
>>43442127Well, we're playing with a lot of influence from the AVP:E RTS game, and we had Yautja(predators), the Colonial Marines, and hostile Xenomorph hives to contend with, and they weren't static. Hopefully in the next thread or two we'll be going to space by capturing the human's warship, and I'd assume from there we'll be trying to move our hive to perhaps a larger colony that will put up more resistance, encounter more advanced humans, roving predators looking for a challenging hunt, and perhaps Xenomorph hives that have also blossomed on other planets.
>>43442127Our short-term quest is to confiscate the human ship so we can travel to a planet with more hosts and resources, or to fortify our new hive and attempt to construct some kind of craft for the same purpose (like some kind of dumb missile filled with hundreds of eggs and some drones in stasis or something). In the long run I'd guess our goal is to become the dominant Xenomorph hive in this part of the galaxy (wherever that is).
>>43442154I don't think they thought hard enough into the whole deal with Xenomorphs to go into the logistics of how they survive as animals, beyond their breeding habits. We never see any of their bodily waste (do they even produce any? Surely they must.), nor do we see them eat regularly even when food is presented (there's a few cases where they completely ignore readily available food/corpses for whatever reason). It is important to remember that, as a horror movie series first and foremost, seeing the xenomorphs do all of the things expected of other animals would ruin the image they're meant to set.Writing all of this has got me thinking: WHERE ARE WE PUTTING OUR WASTE, OP?
>>43442186I would imagine one of our goals is to find out who modified our egg, and why. And then to eat the person responsible, for their delicious brains.
>>43442189.... Anon don't think too hard. We are optimized in all aspects. We only shit eggs and only the queen is allowed that.>>43442202Bad spooky. I'll send. Predator after you if you dare say the queen isn't enough for us drones
>>43442212Waste MUST be produced, otherwise a xenomorph would grow, and grow, and grow as more matter accumulates. To ridiculous proportions, very quickly. No amount of optimization can get around that necessity.
>>43442154No need to be arrogant. I'm just not that interested in the DNA question, because the base answer is that it's our excuse for the game. And if we find another hive, so what? We absorb them, own them, and now we have a massive hive of our own. What next?These aren't bad questions to have. If they're considered, then we should get a much more interesting story. It's all about that ending; is it worth sticking around to see?
>>43442226Eh, perhaps it could be released as gasses, or as a liquid that soaks into the ground, either way, the hyperefficient nature of Xenomorph biology makes the quantity of waste produced an insignificant factor unless hives grow supermassive.
>>43442243What happens when you attach a facehugger to a xenomorph?That's something to stick around for.That one question.
>>43442258I think in fighting another hive, our objective would be to kill their Queen and any Praetorians, to prevent a new Queen from developing, bereft of leadership the remaining members of a rival hive would then willingly supplicate themselves to us. Either that, or abominations with abarent genetic mutations, or even worse, Xenomorphs artificially created by humans, would have to be completely exterminated.
the radios on the marines still work right? And are still connected to the same channel the marines are using to coordinate with each other right? Could we use the radios off the dead marines to lesion in on there planes for next thread?
>>43442258It could potentially produce a xenomorph adapted to hunting other xenomorphs.Scary.
>>43442269I saw a comic on /co/ someone was story timing about 2 alien hives at war. They basically charge each other like medieval armies excepts they rip each other apart with there bare hands, tails, and second mouth instead of with swords and arrows. didn't see any face huggers in that fight
Hey guys, just here to clarify for some anons our goals and the overall story.Right now we are in a squad based game and will need to transition into civ style eventually, named PCs will still be sent on missions etc.I've been writing snippets of back story in the OP posts and these should start revealing bits and pieces of who fucked with your DNA.
>>43442330so is wayland-Yutani still in business or did they go bankrupt? I mean I don't really know much about them other then they're alien's universe's version of umbrella but I remember someone saying they went out of business at some point. Probably because they fead all there employes to the aliens.
>>43442368At the end of Alien: TrashRection, Weyland and all megacorporations were banned.This game is set before that god awful movie and after Aliens.
>>43442615Aliens trash bin? That whatbthe call the last aliens movie?
At some point I'll take ownership of a xeno named Preddy the Predalien and you can't stop me
>>43445054We can and will Anon.
>>43444570Jesus this thread isn't dead yet, I just finished an 8 hours shift.Alien and Aliens, were brilliant, Alien ressurection, was redeemed only by the Xenomorphs.The movie was garbage.
>>43448677Just waiting for the thread to continue, haven't got anything better to do right now.
>>43449349>>43449349I'll be jumping into bed soon, and I think i'll run the thread as soon as I wake up, about 7 hours give or take.
>>43449413sadly I'll be at work. You're not the only one who works a night shift
