Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/45115944/Our Current Stats: http://pastebin.com/DfAqsxvaIt has been an entire year since The Master has died and your people have managed to carry on their lives. Your have finally seemed to develop resemblance of free will and their bouts of independence have become common enough that they've even denied orders once or twice... Though your people still dogmatically follow the entity that produces the largest amount of Mana: The Technician. Previously: You developed an entirely "new" customized unit known as the "Pilgrim", it's too soon to say what significance he will have, but he may yet prove himself to be a promising "adventurer model" in the near future. We also found out how truly we've come to depend on The Technician unit as chaos unfolded when they were indisposed. The Alchemist Stone was also "cut". Collect Genetics. Expand the Psych. Establish your Independence. Create Beauty.((2nd post INC, please wait a moment))
>>45260844+Current Environmental Development+ Winter(4th thread, winter)One entire year has passed and it is now winter; this has a few implications:-It is cold, dark, cloudy and rains constantly on and off.-The stair case leading to the upper levels is slippery and treacherous from run-off from higher levels draining into your area and flooding the small "river" on your level.-The heavily wooded FLOOR B1 has become completely littered with nuts & small orange fruits as well as budding mushrooms- all of which have attracted animals fattening themselves up for the rest of the next year. +Current Development+ Cut Philosopher's stoneA Complex soul has been spread to the Philosopher's stone and they are now what's considered a "cut" philosopher's stone as opposed to a "rough" one. They are now a 'being', but what this entails is unknown. +Current Development+ The Pilgrim's ShackThe Pilgrim has made himself a small living space that he's been using as a general hunting lodge and forward base for his independent travels within the local area and to allow himself some distance from the Philosopher's stone. The pilgrim has also been using it as a site to independently craft hand made tools and accessories- mostly made out of bone, wood, insect chitin or the few inorganic scavenged materials from the dungeon.-He comes back 'home' once every week to have dinner with the technician and the rest of the homonculi, usually bringing wild game, fruit, and mushrooms with him. Every once in a while though he seems to bring back a few gold coins.

>>45260954>Inspect and Analyze the gold coins brought by the Pilgrim.>roll 19/20>Nearly perfect, completely and total 'nearly' unarguable success.The Pilgrim has been making longer and longer trips as he's come to accept and become more comfortable with his independence; sometimes at the cost of growing more distance from his community, one might consider.Though, he continues to come back once a week to have dinner with The Technician as well as to catch up with the rest of the Homonculi- exchanging stories with the Soldiers, assisting the laborers in their work -if only out of persist habit- and humoring the nonchalant, aggressive advancements of the dolls. The Pilgrim however is no free-loader, he is Homonculi, he is a laborer and his instinct tells him to bring and collect resources for the one he considers a "master": hunted game, foraged edible plants, fruits and nuts, but most interestingly gold coins.The Pilgrim doesn't know why, but he feels an overwhelming undeniable compulsion to collect what small treasure he can find and an even stronger compulsion to bring it back home. Nothing significant or in large quantities mind you, but a small bad of assorted gold, silver, or bronze coins every second or third week. The Technician gathers the coins in their study and also brings them forward to have Lilith study them; Lilith seems to light up, "G-gold? Here?? Where did you get GOLD from??" She rolls the coins through her large, black, surgical claws and methodically feels every groove and indentation from their make and design before popping them individual in her mouth and studying them carefully. "Does the phrase, 'Burn Alone' mean anything to you my Master?" Lilith questions, spitting out the gold coins and handing them back to the Technician; perfectly cleaned, glistening and free of their previous wear, tear and tarnish. "There's also an emblem- A herd of Horses(?) stylized to form a sweeping cloud or pyre?"
>>45261402Glad to see eldritch abomination gf is feeling better.

Oh we are starting? I've been waiting on the weekend thread.
>>45260989>Action: Investigate further traits/quirks about the Supersized Dolls.>roll 19/20>Nearly perfect, complete and total 'nearly' unarguable success. They're Big. They're Strong. They're built to Last.Unfortunately they were exclusively made and designed for intensive loving and though the Pilgrim and Technician both agree it entirely possible a Plus-sized Doll could hypothetically kill the Chimera with their bare hands.The idea of violence to seek harm or confrontation seems to repulse them. The Technician however makes an attempt to analyze and study the Dolls for any further unique quirks or hidden features- They foolishly try to interview the Dolls themselves, but are quickly trapped and become immersed in a prison of mountainous exposed, heavy, plush and ample homonculi flesh. It takes them 5 hours to "escape" and it is only when they are given permission. Eventually The Technician reasons it might be better to just ask Lilith as she is the one who made them a long with everyone else."The Plus-sized Dolls were the first customized or personally edited and registered model in the register- you, my master, are the second and the-" Lilith pauses to wave her hands to demonstrate sarcasm, "'Pilgrim unit' was the third such custom unit, although he is thankfully not a registered model. The Plus-sized Dolls as well as yourself are the first and last custom made models we have from our previous Master." Lilith begins slowly, very discreetly budding copies of herself in the shape of Dolls; dozens of them, like branches they grow and extend from her body- effortlessly hanging demonstrations of their excessive and grotesque flesh "Would you like me to make more? It would be no issue at all- All Soldier, Laborer, Doll and plus-sized dolls may be mass-produced.""It would be my pleasure." She Chortles. This is the first time anyone in your community has made a joke. Her laughter awkwardly peters out when she realize The Technician does not get the joke.

>>45262015It'd be a good idea to get used to it. It's only gonna get more sever, by the looks of it.

>>45261953>Sex slaves>Built to lastAlso that whole interaction with Lilith was kind of like that dialogue with EDI in Mass Effect 3, when she makes a joke about forgetting to recycle oxygen or something and has to reassure Shepard that it was just a joke.
>>45262115We should develop sarcasm
>>45262115I'd rather roll for a sense of humor and then laugh with Lilith.We should roll for puns. Even if we end up rolling a 1 we would still have painfully bad puns, which are the best kind.
>>45262115Humour seems and advantageous idea in general. Our family is very focused on emotional well-being, and in the event of a tragedy humour could prove helpful to the maintenance of familial cohesion.

>>45261024>>45260945>Introspection and remember: The Master>Roll 56 & 21>Below Average results. +Genetic Memory"Cold." Lilith interjects. The Technician turns away from their studies of the Dolls design and the coins over to Lilith- Crawling up, her body moving like hot candle-wax and she brushes her skin suit made gown."I remember Cold, boney hands. All over me. I remember it being an entirely loveless, meaningless affair- all formality and no flair."The Technician reasons she must be talking of The Late Master- they move over to the tanks, pressing their hand on the glass, Lilith in turn extend one of her claws on the other side to mirror the Technician's small palm."I felt nothing; no stress, no disgust, no love, no hatred, no anxiety- It was as if I merely existed, not too dissimilar to how a brick might live in a wall or the head of a hammer." Lilith begins reaching her other hand out of the tank to paw at the Technician- gently dragging the fine points of her long, drawn out claws against their back. "You could say this year has been wrought with emotional trauma for all of us involved, my Master?" The Technician remains stone-faced.Lilith slowly draws back her hand and slithers back down into the basement to be alone.

>>45262249>>45262301>>45262412>>45262480>CROSS-BREED>Roll 10/20>Minimal Success, but overwhelming interest.The Technician is blatantly interested in attempting to fuse the best qualities of the Doll models with the best qualities of the Soldier models. Taking with them one of the Soldier Models as well as one doll and one plus-sized doll, the Technician requests Liliths presence in order to ask her a question; she seems to have a sixth sense for these sort of things and rises up almost immediately. Before the Technician says anything, "Yes, My Master?" She than realizes The Technician means to combine traits from the three models to form an entirely new model and proceeds to calm down. "Oh, right- Yes, that can be arranged. The superior internal supporting muscle and bone development of the Dolls could be combined with the military capabilities and qualities of the Soldiers... Although we would need to carry over more of the Doll's nature than perhaps the soldiers as the imbalance in hormones would most likely lead to Hyper aggression and explicit, unhealthy, highly territorial behavior, but I think we'd be able to cobble something professional up.. If you would assist me, my Master." >+New Model Unlocked+: Amazon Doll>You can may now make "Amazons". Amazons are a combination of the best qualities of the Plus-Sized Dolls and the Soldier units: They are essentially a busty, literal-bomb-shell, very heavy "cruiser" type soldier model of Homonculi. Unlike the Soldiers models who were designed and built as "Body-guards", Amazons are more socially equipped due to the Sex-doll carry over psche and are more capable of working as an effective team and even leading others. Amazon Models make for exceptional leaders and commanding officers who value the lives, security and combat effectiveness of their units and those they protect; They are dominant, yet submissive units that know ALL about 'giving' and 'receiving' orders.

>>45263149Make a squad as amazons, About 5 or so.
>>45263232I think we should utilize the amazons as elite soldiers and maybe breed the tech with a soldier or amazon to make a leader/general type unit
>>45263232>>45263275wait, it's not yet time.
>>45263149So I'm thinking we keep good old vanilla soldiers around home base to keep us safe, and the Amazons be the soldiers we send abroad.Their fighting ability, leadership and "charisma" would make them very balanced adventurers.Also, is it at all possible to convert older soldiers to Amazons? I'm not saying we order that. Actually I would very much be against it. But if they are statistically superior models, there is a good chance some of the soldiers would request the transformation. Especially considering they are also superior models in other areas that the soldiers have shown interest in.
>>45263324Seems to me we'd be better off sending squads of the normal soldiers led by Amazon commanders.
if there any remains of the old master, bones for example, we should give them to lilith
>>45263275>>45263232Don't roll until the OP asks fro them
>>45263389That sounds like a stupidly dangerous idea that would reveal only painful and horrific revelations. Not to mention the whole ordeal and any consequences would be absurdly spooky.I'm all for it should we roll now?
>>45263478Not yet.But it's indeed better to let the old master rest. I am sure he would never have allowed half the things we've done.

>>45262548>>45262575>Finish the business with the Otyugh>Roll 79/100>Imperfect Roll, very high end success. +BONUS ACTION+ +LONG-STANDING HANG-UP+The Otyugh tank has been a novelty in your community, but the larvae have been getting bigger and bigger and unlike in nature where they would most likely eat one another until a single, large, Otyugh would take command of it's filthy territory.. There are at least three dog-sized Otyugh within the Aquarium- living peacefully and sated on garbage.The Egg case has long since been eaten by the Otyughs themselves and they've grown so large they're actually quite capable of consuming entirely the small amount of waste your community produces: dead vegetation, table scraps and excrement from The Pilgrim and The Technician. Your Technician though hasn't been slouching, they have been genuinely busy researching and studying the Otyugh in their spare time and have even been disposing of the the dead or runty larvae via throwing them into the vats for Lilith to break down and analyze.You've found out the following information concerning Otyugh Ecology:>The Otyugh within the disposal level most likely slithered in through a crack in the wall as a larvae. Otyugh Larvae are the size of a brine shrimp when first born and amphibious; being able to wiggle on damp surfaces in their effort to find food and housing. >The Otyugh on a genetical level has very little to offer beyond their spines, but Lilith and The Technician agree the Otyugh's unique internal microbes could be used to give a slight upgrade to the already stacked immune-systems of your Homonculi and the formative digestive systems of your Pilgrim and Technician unit.>Lilith does not enjoying breaking down Otyugh, "If you're doing to give me your stool samples I'd much rather.. Take them from the source." >The Technician does not understand potty humor either, (un)fortunately.
>>45263292>>45263391you're both wrong, seeing as there arent very many options for him to choose from, he has 2 actions and 1 idea per "update", i was just giving him some variety, which is more than that shitposting
>>45263658I say keep enough to take care of our waste/start a breeding program if necessary and get rid of the rest.
>>45263658Don't give any more Otyugh samples, both to keep bae happy and because it doesn't look like we can get too much else from them.Which of course leaves us with the question of what to do with the grown ones we already have.The other homonuli seem to like them, so we can't just kill them. Also they seem pretty useful.Assuming they don't get bigger and more difficult to keep, I say we leave this matter as it is. It seems to be good for developing the others' individuality, having something neither homonculus nor Master nor livestock to care for and observe. Kind of like a class pet.
Sorry I missed the last thread, life stuff. It seems like everything is coming along pretty well!
>>45263841Yeah, things got just a little tense when Technician was "recovering" but other than that it's all good.That one independent laborer got customized like he wanted into Pilgrim and is doing his own thing now.We also had our first date with Lilith.It was sexy.

So far though, you have been praciting and brandishing your skills on the local flora and fauna: hunting in your spare time, rummaging and looting for treasure on the FLOOR 1 and FLOOR B1.Your personal achievements include: Crafting your own leather equipment from deer/goat hide.Fashioning a bow of sinew, leather, animal bone and wood.Using the sword of The Late Master to successfully kill a Cockatrice (after having been poisoned and found paralyzed in the field at least twice). You have since eaten the Cockatrice at a house dinner with the Technician and made a fashionable belt and purse from it's snake-skin-tail.You can still do more though, but what?You may roll for 2 Actions and 1 Supportive/Contribution to your community.

Persimmons, Acorns and Apples can be gathered from the trees of the floors as well as mushrooms from their trunks. Vegetation comes from edible fern heads, the starchy roots of reeds growing by the river on FLOOR 1 as well as wild, green, onions that sprout up in the thinner grassy areas. Meat though, is surprisingly plentiful: Goat, Deer, Pheasant, Squab, Beetle, Scorpion, and Cockatrice all make for excellent eating- The Pilgrim's favorite being Beetle fattened from winter persimmons; boiling them in whole in their shells and cracking them open to eat the sweet, buttery meat. The Laborers have learned a significant amount of culinary improvisation from the Pilgrim to say the least.

>>45264710>>45264559>Explore level FLOOR 2B (below) and FLOOR 2 (above)>ROLL 20/20>COMPLETE AND TOTAL SUCCESS. INTERESTING RESULTS!The Travels of the Pilgrim have begun to take them farther and farther away from home- not too far though as the threat of the Chimera still lingers on your home and brethren.But it has leas them far enough that they've explored the heavily wooded area of FLOOR 1B: walked beneath the canopy of Dungeon oak trees as he picked mushrooms, hunted animals and stalked monsters- in search of treasure, glory and experience. Floor 1B though is a calm and peaceful wood compared to the level below it.Below Floor 1B is the Canyon of Floor 2B: The stairs remain, but several or perhaps even a dozen other level below it have collapsed leaving behind haphazard platforms supported only by tree roots as they cling to the sides and supports of the tower. This "canyon" though is not so deep though as the only floor left intact can still be clearly seen below- perhaps a dozen or so levels below where our community currently resides. Floor 2 however is a different matter; it is a dark and foreboding area with withered foliage and the arched windowed either sealed or obscured to allow no light in- This is where The Pilgrim has been collecting the coins from. What they have not been telling the others though is that they've been collecting and scavenging these coins off of the dozens of stacked and piled skeletons strewn about on the floor surrounding the stairs. All of them stripped and clean of flesh with the bones themselves showing claw and bite marks and almost always deprived of any useful or meaningful equipment beyond rags. Floor 2's floor is also heralded by some sort of banner or flag over the entrance leading from the stair case: a purple banner of some sort with some kind of cloud and hooves? The Pilgrim doesn't ask questions- he merely dashes in very briefly and pilfers the pocket change of dead men.

>>45265679I bet it's another floor boss, but the nature of the bite marks should tell us more.
>>45265745>>45265762no i didnt say that...not even the slightestdo i think you should get a "trip/name" anyways? yes seeing as there are numerous benefits and the fact is, is that you are still "anonymous"dont be so sensitive anons>>45265768no, dont mind the anon, i think hes actually literally autistic, and a shitposter
>>45265806What if there is only one chimera?
>>45265769Its the only thing I can imagine.All those bodies picked clean, and yet the Chimera leaves us alone? Probably cause it was made/captured by the Master to defend him, the tower, and his property; and since he made us, that would make us off-limits to the Chimera.
>>45265812>nature of the bite marks should tell us more.Good point, we should examine the corpses more.Or better yet, bring some bones back to Lilith. She should have a better idea of what causes what bite marks. We may even get some neat genes from the bones or any leftover saliva.
>>45265846This seems extremely prudent, we must assess the potential threat of whatever is creating all of these bones.
>>45265806Unlikely. I think something else. Flesheating bugs maybe? Anyways, the Chimera should provide some upgrades for our soldiers
>>45265846Same guy who posted this so don't count as a second vote for scavenging corpses.We should also look around for any sign of fur or any trace of what killed them to give to Lilith.Just be careful. Pilgrim needs to be aware of his surroundings, especially considering how dark it is.
>>45264639>Bring in Cockatrice bodies and/or eggs for potential research and domestication as "guard dogs">Roll 63/100>Above Average Success. Results, but not ideal.The Cockatrice is a medium sized bird about the size of a turkey or perhaps a large goose. It is best known for the paralyzing venom it possess in it's snake tail and the unique defensive chemistry it possess with the snake and chicken head; being able to run as fast forward and backward and capable of seeing nearly completely 360 degrees around itself. This is what the Pilgrim's Encyclopedic knowledge of basic creatures, animals, livestock and monsters tell it about the Cockatrice, but it is entirely different to actually see and experience the animal.It is an awkward and goofy looking animal; it clucks and struts about- too heavy to truly fly, but it's pride remains untarnished by this fact. The Cockatrice does not seem interested in hunting down The Pilgrim, recognizing the Homonculi as naught food, but a genuine threat: the difficulty of then hunting this creature is not to confront it, but to make it stay and fight while avoiding the tail.Loosing a well placed bone arrow into the breast of the creature followed by carefully severing the serpent tail seems to be the best option.The First time The Pilgrim fought one it simply ran off with expedient and surprising haste into the brush. The second and third time The Pilgrim fought one he was bitten twice- both times because he neglected the tail lives on for 5 minutes after the death of the main body.Either way, experience has taught him much and even though no eggs are found- Another cockatrice is collected and donated to the Alchemy Lab of his home community. The Pilgrim personally hands the birds carcass to a Soldier on patrol- his efforts rewarded with a drawn out kiss.

He feels it is duty to as an adventurer and as a member of his community- the safety of others, the honor as prestige it would bring. He comes up one evening, just after night fall- this is when he's heard the most noise coming from the floor above; "thump", "crackle" and a dull, low, thundering rumble. It's pure and absolute darkness though that awaits him, absolutely nothing can be seen in the void- he takes no chances though and confines himself to the bottom of the stair case in case he needs to make a hasty retreat. There's a loud, metallic, grinding and clattering noise followed by a shuffling and then a thump and another and another- heavy, 'full-bodied' thumps that land on the bottom of the floor crunching on the bones below. The Pilgrim then notices the beast.He can hear the mighty Chimera's grumbling, low, roar roll out like dull thunder in the distance. When the creature opens it's mouth he can see the dull embers of flame briefly light and draw shadows from the horrible beasts teeth and sabre-fangs. There's a shuffling, heavy paw prints and hooves pattering against the floor as the creature seems to carry off mouthfuls of bodies to a layer deeper within the level.Briefly, very briefly, the Pilgrim's feels the gaze of the bright, reflective cat eyes of the Chimera's.It lets out a quick huff of air, "Hffff" before going back towards to what the Pilgrim senses very distantly the quiet, tiny, sound mullings and purs in the black distance. >FLOOR 2: THE CHIMERA KENNEL DISCOVERED
>>45265806Allright you win. Apparently it WAS chimeras.
>>45266479Well.Glad Pilgrim's OK.Also, Pilgrim needs to be sure to be careful with the bones, I'm still hoping there's some saliva or something preserved on them. If we can get Chimera DNA to Lilith in some form, it would really help us beat it if we have the same abilities it does.
>>45266479>It lets out a quick huff of air, "Hffff" before going back towards to what the Pilgrim senses very distantly the quiet, tiny, sound mullings and purs in the black distance.And it's a mother.
>>45266479>quiet, tiny, sound mullings and purs in the black distanceDo we get our own Chimera pup?
>>45266572Ooh, smart. Supporting this.
>>45266479>>45266034>>45265591Aaannd that's three, it's time to get back to our girls back at home.>The New Homonculi are ready.The entire community has come out of the wood work to welcome in what will essentially double the size of your family: 5 new Soldiers, 10 new Laborers, 3 new Dolls, 2 new Plus-sized Dolls AND 1 brand new Amazon Doll with an ACTUAL total of 21 new Homonculi nearly completed. ((sorry, bad at math))This will raise your current total population to 48 Homonculi.But never mind that for the time being, it is a joyous occasion and all of the Homonculi have gathered for the release of the completed batch- Even the Pilgrim has come out to welcome the new sisters and siblings into the fold.The First to come waddling out are the laborers, they're plain and simple- the adjust their foot and stand to attention before waltzing over to the company of their own kind. The majority of your community is made up of laborers and had you any visions of economic or industrial expansion- they'd be the back bone of it, for now though they simply keep things neat and tidy and your chickens and vegetables fat and sassy.The Second to be released from the Mana Embryotic soup are the Standard Dolls and the Soldiers, they're built a little heavier a little more complex, but again they're all too eager to swap registration and information with their new sisters.The Plus-sized dolls are the third last to come out; their breasts, hips and ass seem to appreciate no longer being cramped within the confides of vat glass and take a moment to stretch and dry off, before making a pass at the Pilgrim. Which is denied politely denied by one of the Soldiers- Lilac, to be specific. All of the new Homonculi seem to have been registered through inoculation within development. (part 2 inc)
>>45266929>Lilac, to be specific.HE STOLE OUR WAIFU DAMNIT!
>>45267038Lilith doesn't count?
>>45266929>Lilac and PilgrimI like it.
>>45266929Lilith finally slithers out- shacking wrists carrying and setting down the wobbling, shuffling Technician onto the laboratory floor, "Registration complete, Internal and external manual design completed. Failsafes check on structure, psyche and mental facilities. New Model Acknowledged, Cataloged- Genetics Checked, Cleaned up." The Technician rubs and stretches their aching joints, wrists and body before they're scooped up by a Doll to be tended to.The Vat can barely contain The new Amazon Unit- even held up in the fetal position her frame is absolutely horrendously massive. She is Big.She isn't actually that Mean- she's actually quite nice and serviceable.And she isn't Green, but a sort of a rich, maybe coffee-colour brown complexion with a really dull complimentary blue-hued almost silver hair?Her bio-synthetic skin suit tightly holsters over her muscular body and tanking breasts like a leotard. The Amazon Unit walks out of her tight vat and stretches herself out; she towers over all the other units and it's amazing she was even able to fit in her vat during mature development- it's very clearly visible how physically taxing and resource heavy it was to produce her physical body- Your Technician and Lilith both hope the soft ware turns out just as good as the hard ware though as even Lilith is in a semi-lucid state from the over exertion of creation. She speaks, "Acknowledging initialized pre-registration", "Oh thank The Maker-" The Technician exclaims, still being held and rubbed down by two Dolls. >You now have an Amazon Unit>She can be effectively used to better and more efficiently command and issue military orders to your disorganized and undisciplined Soldier units.>She exhumes an extremely dominating force over soldier units, but at the same time is very submissive to models of authority or individuals as per standard design feature. She will answer to Lilith, The Technician and The Pilgrim- with a bias toward The Technician.

>>45267260Far be it from me to criticize outright, but I must ask what the utility of massive unnecessary fat deposits are for primarily combat focused body types. Fat does not offer the same kind of protection from punctures or cuts as chitin or synthetic material, and reduces mobility while increasing weight.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>45267260Interact with Amazon in front of the Soldiers.Reward her with compliments when she behaves/responds appropriately to hopefully get the Soldiers to follow suite.

>>4526743020 is probably all the support this needs but still want to say I like this idea.It will be important to make Amazon the leader of the soldiers, but immediately declaring the newborn as the veterans' boss is a decision I and I'm sure the soldiers, Amazon included wouldn't be too comfortable with.Let her prove herself as worthy of being their leader.Considering she was created to be a good soldier and leader, she'll no doubt prove herself as the leader of the soldiers in no time.And also having her lead by example is a great idea.

Interesting Results.Both the Technician and Lilith have to rest for a day or so, but they eventually awake to notice... nothing has fallen apart.Everything is perfectly fine the way they left it and all the Homonculi obediently waited for their return with nary a peep, revolt or kidnapping of the Technician as they slept within their tank. The Amazon unit has been keeping everyone in tip top condition; even going so far as to physically pick up and scold those few, rowdy, Soldier units who may have gotten out of line under previous conditions. The Amazon seems to get a long swimmingly with the other Homonculi- see radiates a positive and confident attitude the others find calming and reliable. The Technician however is mildly interested in meeting and getting to know their first actual piece of independent "work" and decides to spend some platonic time socializing with her in the therapy room.The Amazon is very "stiff", she lists of her serial number and is uncomfortable with breaking rank, but she eventually warms up when she is allowed to address The Technician face to face.This requires the Amazon to kneel down, but it seems to disarm the situation. The two talk of idle things and exchange questions about one another. The Amazon unit admits in a brief moment of vulnerability admits she would like her personal nickname to be "Princess", but quickly realizes in a distinct and complex moment of social independence the the idea of The Technician addressing her as "Princess" feels INCREDIBLY unprofessional and embarrassing- quickly dropping the subject entirely.

It's only been a few days, but the Amazon doll seems to have whipped your little disorganized group of low-attention-span warriors into an actual serviceable obedient military force: the now listen to orders, execute them accurately and go about their duties in an effective and timely manner.Before their idea of a "patrol" had been reduced to simply going outside and wandering about to make sure nothing in the area would kill or harm anyone in the community.. occasionally bringing back a dead rat or deer. Now everything is organized and scheduled down to when they go out, who goes out, and what they bring back.Now they're being actively trained and drilled to keep their bodies in pristine working condition- The Amazon Unit taking great pride in the creativity and results shown by her drilling exercises. She has even managed to whip and squeeze that extra 110% out of the Pilgrim's small body in between training and disciplining the Soldier dolls. The Soldier Models are finding out for the first time they're capable of sweating under the tutelage of the Amazon Doll. >The Amazon feels the Soldiers and herself are physically prepared to face off against the Chimera if they have to.
>>45268400Discovering a name for yourself makes a pretty good rite of passage for us.I wonder if lillith being 'cut' has anything to do with why Princess found hers so quickly?
>>45268281You! Yes you!I like you.
>>45268670I think the Dolls already had a decent amount of free thought and individualism, so she probably got it from them.
>>45268281I love it.
>>45268709Hey eh, just had a though... what happened to the Masters body?
I gotta go, but could someone vote later to go and ask Lilith how is it doing? Maybe to be as bold as to ask what changes now that she has a complex soul herself?
Rolled 78 (1d100)Lets develop the idea of: Building. So we can start shaping this place up properly
>AgroForestry>roll 90/100>Good, Solid, '10'. Nearly Perfect Success. The Technician and The Pilgrim rationalize that with the added security and the materials available, the forested floor below us could be converted into a mix growth orchard where food and building materials could be reliably collected and gathered; mostly in the form of wood from the Dungeon Oaks. This wood as well as the stone and mortar salvaged from the interior of floor 1 could be used to build an extension of our Arcanum and allow your people to begin building into the neighboring hallway just outside. The problem however is you currently lack the tools for such a job, but it seems necessity is the mother of invention and the mother has come in the form of lilith. She once again slithers to provide her insight into your people's problems and issues, "I could make us some tools and attachments- we have the material already compiled, here let me show you. I've been working on a little something for our new Elite Unit, The Amazon." Lilith begins shivering, twisting, coiling and shuddering before her long claws cut a spade into her chest and it begins folding outward; a large, fresh, blood-soaked, massive femur begins to slide and feed out of her. The Head and Handle of the bone are comically over-sized and as the massive femur becomes exposed to Oxygen, spilling out from the vat; it hardens like steel and lands with a heavy, echoing, dense, thud on the floor of the laboratory. The Femur has been grown and developed in the shape of a gigantic hammer- the length of the bone wrapped around in a kind of gripping, living, flesh that mimics the tension and feel of leather. "A weapon-" Lilith coughs, clearing her throat, "A weapon for our Amazon Unit to wield proudly in battle!" >The Philospher's stone can casually make and produce quantities of "living" tools provided it has the biological material and mana available. >Tools are obviously easier to make than Homonculi.

>>45269433The Moment I've been waiting for.It's time for the true journey to begin.Everything we've worked and planned towards- our first real steps forward.Lets do it up. Together.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhDK0Krdabo
>>45269433>Repeating numbers and a 20. Witnessed!
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>45269378Could we try using that cockatrice paralyzing poison to take it alive? Having a tamed Chimera around would be badass, and this one might have cubs we could use to start a breeding program.
>>45269513Fuck taking it alive. That thing is going in the VATs
>>45269433Blessed Be Anon!though i expect we'll lose someone this day.
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>45269258supporting, since the cats pretty fucking dead
>>45269513she has a litter that is probably weaned already, and those will be easier to tame. I say we kill the mother, keep the kittens/kids/whatever you call a baby snake
>>45269652I can get behind that
>>45269652Yeah, I sense a bit of a dilemma coming up for our soldiers when they find out the chimera is a mother.
>>45269740>Yeah, I sense a bit of a dilemma coming up for our soldiers when they find out the chimera is a mother.Yeah, the dilemma being where's the father?
>>45269740It is not one of us and is a danger to the family, I don't see them having a dilema about it, If they do though they are sadly very flawed....
>>45269787The Master's kinkiness continues to surprise and dismay.
>inb4 the Chimera is the only thing between us and something more threatening
>>45269787OH FUCK M-maybe the reproduce asexually!
>>45269258>Step 1: Weapons and Equipment>Roll 13/20>!!!!!13!!!!!!! NUMBER OF THE TECHNICIAN. UNUSUAL RESULTS.Lilith seems to be impressed with her little fabricated hammer, "See, It's bone and still living marrow in the center with a layer of Keratin to make it dense and li-" "Chitin". The Technician gets up, "Chitin, can you replicate Chitin?" Lilith doesn't want to admit how turned on she becomes when the Technician interrupts her, "Y-yes, I can synthesize Chitin, I can actually make Chitin quite easily, why, my Master?" "Blades. Blades, very, very sharp Blades- down to the micro-meter; cheap, cost effective, very, very, sharp blades and Armor. Armor that has chitin infused into a removable layered attachment onto our skin-suits- actually; here, I'm taking administrative editorial action. I have a vision that must be realized." The Technician storms off and dives right into the Mana Vats- brazenly wrapping their arms around Lilith before diving down into the floor below.Lilith is embarrassed by how aroused she currently is.>+New Geneology: Prosthetic Chitin Blade and Filaments>Chitin Blades can be held and armed like a perfectly ordinary blade- they are also less expensive and more light-weight than bone or keratin, but break easily if handled incorrectly. The Technician attempted to make replaceable Chitin Rounds for the Soldiers Spine-shooters, but the Chitin proved simultaneously to fragile and sharp- bone spines providing excellent stopping-damage. >Chitin has also been used to infuse and refurbish the Skin-suits of your soldiers and amazons: it is an exceptionally flexible, strong, resilient material, but is less insulating than their standard skins. It also has the added bonus of giving your Soldiers and Amazon's body-suits a very attractive, reflective, almost metallic sheen.
>>45269868I think I just realized what our logical coarse of evolution is.
Rolled 87 (1d100)Do we already have ranged weapons on the soldier models? If not roll to develop that.
>>45269868>The Technician storms off and dives right into the Mana Vats- brazenly wrapping their arms around LilithI know I should care about the whole revolution this new material will bring our society, but that means nothing to me compared to the development we've just had with Lilith.
>>45269966Nah, That isn't beautiful.
>>45269972they all have bone launchers grafted to their arms.
>>45270017We can make them beautiful.
>>45269966>Artificial creatures utilizing chitin and collecting geneticsHonestly I got more of a Collectors vibe.Technician using his magic to lead invasion with iconic battle cries "the forces of the universe bend to me" when?
>>45270029Sweet then I change my roll to augment the launchers with paralytic venom.
>>45269868Neat, I'll sketch some of this up.
>>45270062Never, Because that sounds lame.
>>45269310>Idea: Animal Trapping>Roll 75/100>Good, Honest, Divisible by "5" number. Sturdy and Reliable results.The Technician rises up from the top of one of the Vats; The Pilgrim and Amazon Unit both having been called to survey and review the custom made Chitin equipment The Technician themselves made.While the Amazon applies her new Chitin-infused leotard skin-suit, The Pilgrim handles one of the Chitineous blades- it cuts cleanly, swiftly, singing through the air with a foreign zing and as light as a hair- shining, glimmering, dull green insectoid shimmer. The Pilgrim wonders allowed, "What about Traps?" The Technician whisks off the Mana from their bright, teal hair, "What do you mean, Traps?" Placing the sword down, The Amazon unit posing off to the side- stretching and testing her leotard, quietly admiring how it gives her muscles a glistening and beautiful metallic sheen. "Do you think you could Fabricate some traps, snares or cages to pin or capture the Chimera? This equipment is breathtaking, Master, but supplementary accessories that aid or pit the environment against the creature would be useful." The Technician ponders and gazes over at the Amazon Unit, "Muscles.." The Amazon unit immediately perks up, flushed, embarrassed- standing at attention.The Technician dives down below the basement once more, pulling Lilith with them. Such pleasures of the flesh. It's all so sudden- the direction, the authority, The DOMINANCE. Such Exotic and unorthodox Design. The joy of creation. Overwhelming. "Take me. Use me.">+New Geneology: Muscle Snare >The Muscle snare is a non-lethal latching, grabbing, trap: made from bone, coiled by living muscles and flesh, while being pinned in place to the ground by a burrowing coiled, spine. The Muscle snare has a "mouth" and a "tongue" trigger- The Tongue able to taste friend from foe and the literal mouth clamping down onto the limp. Can come with or without teeth if needed.
>>45270100Another art guy? Neat! thought i was the only one... that said I feel bad i haven't been doing as much as I normally do.
>>45270220I would have started sooner, but honestly I'm not as good at humans/humanoids as I am at Ayys, or nonliving objects. Oh well, I can't improve if I don't practice.
>>45270219>The Technician ponders and gazes over at the Amazon Unit, "Muscles.." The Amazon unit immediately perks up, flushed, embarrassed- standing at attention.She's to damn cute! Okay she's gettin waifued.
>>45270219Should we be worried that Lil is turning into a Nymfo?
>>45270319No we should not do anything. it all seems fine to me , yes sir, fine to me
>>45270319>turning into a Nymfo?But anon She always was one Also it's Nympho
>>45270220Am I hallucinating or didn't we see Parrats running around the level but we never did anything to meet them?DId they disappear?
>>45268520sometimes the cliche tropes are "cliche" for a reason my friend, because they work (and in some cases are sexy as fuck)>>45268670agreed my friend, but lilith has very little to do with their individuality, in my opinion, as what >>45268705 said, its mostly the dolls psyche mixed with the tech+lilith personally "creating them">>45270220>parratmy nigga>>45269433>dice gods hear my call>dubsdouble my nigga>>45270219>can come with or without teeth, also "tongue trigger" how lewd>>45270319>implyingshe always has been a nympho, dont you remember last thread m8?-----------------------also i really think the dolls look like pic related
>>45270409>pic relatedYou mean like ants?
>>45270319Only if she has no way of expressing her desires.Which I'm sure we will be allowed to give her plenty of outlet for later.Also worth noting that these seem to be different "desires" than before. Before she was envious and even worshiping us for out magic. She is a philosopher's stone, the pinnacle (or just about) of magic, but with no magic of her own; other than what is required for her operation, of course. She was just a tool, a living tool with desires and feelings, but fundamentally just a tool with the express orders>Collect Genetics. Expand the Psych. Establish your Independence. Create Beauty.I'd say three of which magic would fit nicely into.I'm just reiterating shit we already know, of course. But my point is that it's different this time. Now that she is truly alive with a soul, I think it's more biological infatuation, or even love that she's feeling for the first time for us.
>>45270283Well there are plenty of non humanoid and artificial things to draw. like say... the symbol on the coins, the muscle snare we just made. and more.
>>45270447>>45270448only picture that i had of her, you get my point thoughalso>not having superior homunculi eyesight and magnification of ocular lensstraight casuals>>45270456>magichonestly we need to figure out how to create/make/discover magic before we can use it- and seeing as we havent really even done the basics, that is probably far far away---------------------------------although one goal i have in mind, and this could be a very far away or very close goal depending on how you look at it-to see if we can seperate lilith from the "vat" without killing her or stopping us from being able to make more modelsspeaking of which, do we know what lilith actually wants?(other than the technicians both literal and figurative penis)
>>45270219I'm honestly getting a little worried about lillith, with how much she wants to be "used"Codependency is a pretty nasty psychological issue.Also a little worried about the Technicians dominance, it seems out of character and reminiscent of the master. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but we should probably keep an eye on it.

>>45271019It's to late to vote buddy.

>>45271048Is it really?Well.Guess I let the chimeras cubs die.
>>45270838ok fine, not a carbon copy, but you know what i meant, and to be honest, you have to remember what he is(not a human) and that sex appeal isnt really homunculis thing(unless wired/programmed to be, IE. the dolls) but for the most part i believe that he is to be like the master (i mean he gave the technician administrative purposes, that must mean something)>>45270974>>45270974see, this is why we really need people to consider tripfagging/naming themselves, its easier to count the votes, and to encourage easier gameplay/ not to mention it will create a sense of community amongst us, even if you want to roleplay and be named something like >warrior model XJ3i guess it bothers people that this website is "suppose to be anonymous" but unless you're hiding behind 7000 proxies you arent really anonymous, not to mention that the whole point of quests/civs is to put your own ideas/twists/creativity on someone elses story/gameend of rant
>>45271093>see, this is why we really need people to consider tripfagging/naming themselves>Encouraging tripfaggingGet the fuck out right now.
>>45271093Yeah, there have been a handful of civs I've namefagged in and I've found on the overall it really simplifies things in the long run. I know people are usually dead set against it on this website, but seeing as how this quest appears to have a particular base of dedicated players (who are pretty cool people) I think it would work here.
Could someone explain this shit to me?
OH DAMN SON!I forgot this was today.Can anybody bring me up to date?
>>45270795>you have to rememberI agree with all that, but don't want to encourage those traits. I don't like where they lead.
>>45271252lilith has decided wre her true love, we made amazons, gonna kill or capture chimera
>>45271252We made amazons warriors and Lil had an organism
>>45270974You are the Chimera.You are a proud and strong apex predator and you watch over your territory with diligence and persistence: at one point taking orders from a God herself. Those were blessed times for you as God in their providence and mercy provided much for you: territory, mates, and the opportunity to breed and produce many sires to your line.It was not perfect though; God took away your sons and daughters and you missed them, but you sensed and understood they were spread across this land, this tower.You have fallen unto hard times however as God left you. The only thing you have to remember of her Blessed holiness is the constant unending supply of meat she has enchanted the roof of your den to produce. Bless her in her wisdom, for even in her absence she made the effort to provide in these trying times.And trying times these have been; the death of your mate at the hands of heretical interlopers onto this holy land has brought much sorrow to you and your household. She was taken too soon- the children had just been weaned and you know she would have continued to be a wonderful mother and mate.This only means you must work even harder; you must devote yourself fully to withholding the integrity of your family, your line, your holy kingdom. God will return and she will see naught ruin, but a faithful servant who never gave up, whom always believed they would return and stood fast against the harrowing tide of evil. That is until the fallen and corrupted Angels of God came forward. Lead by a false God springing from their own ranks.
>>45271093>see, this is why we really need people to consider tripfagging/naming themselves, its easier to count the votes,>implying people won't sockpuppet> the whole point of quests/civs is to put your own ideas/twists/creativity on someone elses story/gameYou can do that while being anonymous. Does it really bother you if you do that and nobody knows who you are?

>>45271314This does not please me at all! YOU LIED!
>>45271350Don't you realize? All supernatural creatures are sentient/sapient.
>>45271251Make a crazy suggestion and roll either 1d20 or 1d100. Even if the idea is stupid, Cyclops OP will make it into gold.
>>45271314So "God" would clearly be the Master, except that it's a "she", while the master has made it abundantly clear to us through the "user registration" process that he was a man.Another homonculus, maybe? One acting on the Master's orders? One that's not with us anymore, but could still be out there somewhere?Or maybe she was one of the deceased dolls?
>>45271314This is what happens whenever we decide to get bloodthirsty and actually set out to kill something in CyclopsOP's quests. We wind up regretting it.Forever.

I CAN'T WAIT TO KILL THIS THING.
>>45271314I don't need this today op.
>>45271436Chimera may not be able to tell humanoid genders
>>45271548Or the chimera has its own master.Another Rival Master perhaps?
>>45271314T-This didn't make me sad at all. Not in the least. We fucked up, didn't we?
>>45271586Well he said >Final post will try and please everyone as best it can. So either he's a lying bastard orh e's going to do the right thing.
>>45271570whoever was here before we got here
>>45271612He's probably gonna kill and make everyone feel bad about it, especially those who voted for non-lethal. Yeah, he's a lying bastard.
>>45271586We couldn't have known, the thing obviously considers us a hostile entity, and would try to kill us. I don't think peace with it is possible.
>>45271251>>45271252A pervy alchemist known only as "The Master" built a Philosopher's Stone and, from it, made homonculi; artificial humans.The homonculi were divided into separate classes. Soldiers, of course, defended the place. They have bone weapons.Dolls seem to have no purpose other than for "pleasing" the Master. They are extremely sexualized, with certain variations, the "Plus Dolls", having even more exaggerated proportions.Both Dolls and Soldiers are all female.Laborers are the simplest class, both in build and in mind. They have no gender and seem to only focus on their menial tasks, with one exception (get to him in a moment).We were the only male homunculus, likely made in The Master's image. As the Technician we helped him around the lab. When The Master died we took over out of necessity. We have since been trying to survive and advance. With no Master the homonculi are a little lost as to what we should do with ourselves but we're finding purpose in survival and collecting genes to make more of ourselves.We are in a tower, the size of which is unknown other than that it is fucking huge. The Master's domain, now ours, is only part of one floor.The Philosopher's Stone is a living entity; an abominable mass of ever-changing flesh that exists only to consume and recreate materials and life into her own unholy designs. She hopes to one day harness the full potential of magic through our soul and ascend to godhood.She's our waifu and we love her with all our heart.One laborer decided it wanted to be an adventurer, so we threw it in with Lilith (that's the Philosopher's Stone's name) who slapped a penis on him and now he goes by "Pilgrim" and has fun woodland adventures on the floor below us.Pic inaccurate because we've made a couple more types of homonculi since then but whatever it gives you and idea. Will get into what happened this thread in a minute.
>>45271314And a powerful false God he was- He shawn with the radiance and beauty true divinity, a true king, that even you admit; rivaled perhaps a fraction of the splendor of your God.But he was corrupted, vile, unnatural; he lacked scent, his foot tread not a traceable print on the soft grassy meadows of this holy land and he brought with him twisted and sick creations brought forward from twisted flesh and bone that frightened, nipped at your heels and sprung forth from the ground- bloody and savage. His own Angels however, were his most grisly creations. Lead by two Angel, nay, Devils; corrupted holy beings demented by know doubt by perversion and hatred, resembling nothing of the tender, and soft beauty you once knew of them in your youth so long, long, ago. They inspired such sadness, anger and Fear.And Truly would you know true fear in your heart for the first time: fear for your children, fear for the future and this holy land. But with the blessed spirit, ferocity and honor of nature within your beating savage heart, you were determined to protect this sacred land, to protect your family and honor the memory of your God and your wife. To Show these vile devils the tenacity and beautiful strength of the natural world that they've left behind.You were the bastion, the sole protector of this most blessed realm.And so you fought (https://youtu.be/g0RKjGLfhgc?t=79).
>>45271648Well, it could have killed Pilgrim when he was in its den, but didn't. It seemed like it could have been peaceable enough.
>>45271648Except we encountered her a couple of times, and she never did anything.Pilgrim met her near her cubs, and did so much as growl at him.At no point that I recall has the Chimera ever shown hostility towards us.We're the monsters here.
>>45271699*didn't so much as
>>45271699>>45271686Maybe. I dunno. It's obvious he hates us. Hopefully we can take it alive, but I won't shed tears if we don't. We'll attempt to raise the children should we find them,
>>45271495>even the op is tripfaggingHe has to in order for the readers to know when stuff is going on in the universe. We don't need to know who anyone else is.>the fact that you cant really "credit" the people voting/making ideas etc you have no real...organization?You want organization? Out of a democracy? We don't need a history of who voted what. We certainly don't expect that out of real world democracies. It opens people to unnecessary scrutiny and can lead to discrediting otherwise good ideas on the basis of what someone did before. It can also result in blindly following someone with a bad idea just because they've had good ideas in the past.
>>45271685You fought with everything on the line, you held nothing back- You fought as though every deer, every sparrow, every goat, every beetle, every pheasant and cockatrice to even the reeds of the river edged and cheered you on to victory. You fought as if you were the last hope God's grace had given this land.You wrought forth horrid and burning flames from your mouth, you striked and them with claw and tooth and lashed at them with the severity and cruel cunning of your serpentine tail- Your goat head providing you the wisdom and knowledge that assured you victory was achievable, so long as you never stopped believing. For home, hearth, family and god you fought for all that was good in your world. You fought as your heart swelled with the passion of the wilds, you fought as your old joints ached and as your muscles grew pained and numb.You fought because if you did not no one else would- and everything would be taken away from God's bounty and into cold darkness. But it was not enough.
>>45271811Dropped and downvoted, If you're going to lie straight to your players faces you shouldn't fucking run at all.
>>45271839how'd he lie? We don't know if we've killed it yet, and he said it would satisfy us all, not that it would make us happy.
>>45271775We could have made some super cock poison and knocked it out, put it in an enclosure and trained it to be cool. A bug blade that cuts bug dreams is pretty frekin awesome, but we could have taken it alive easy.
>>45271811Please we voted non lethal right? We voted nonlethal?
>>45271860Well I'm a part of that all, And I certainly am not satisfied with this bullcrap.
>>45271370>>45271456>>45271839>cries of Liar>>45270974>Final post will try and please everyone as best it can.You know the best way to please everyone as best you can? By pleasing no one. OP is doing exactly what he said.
>>45271902why don't you let the man finish before you throw a temper tantrum
>>45271879we could have done all of that. With the information already provided.He didn't lie to us. We just didn't ask the right questions or consider that it might be sapient.We'll learn, no doubt, that it's sapient when Lilith dissects it's brain and figures it out.We'll be more careful in future.
>>45271683We (the Technician, we play as the Technician) were injured trying to be a dick. Turns out homonculi can't attempt to physically harm other homonculi without some switch making them horribly ill.Lilith took us inside her (obvious lewd joke but wait it gets better) to heal. We were healed but she didn't let us go. Kept making excuses. Eventually a plus size doll grabbed us out of the tank and rescued us. During this period Pilgrim and Lilith built up some animosity.When we felt better we went to Lilith. I should tell you more about Lilith.In the lab, there is a tank. You throw organic things inside, it is processed, and you collect genes which you can use to splice things together to make cool shit.Placing a slightly injured hand inside the tank, we observed that the fluids, a kind of "liquid mana", healed us. So, absolute madman we are, we jumped in the tank. The eldritch tentacle of eyes and mouths and cute butts that slithered out from an opening in the bottom instantly stole our heart. Mine, at least. We chatted for a while and learned her name was Lilith.After a while we (the Technician) became magic. Not really sure how it happened, I think it was just all of a sudden in a dream. If I'm wrong then someone please correct me. Anyway, Lilith was equal parts terrified and thirsty over what we had become, thus the whole keeping us unconscious prisoner thing.When we confronted her on this she asked us to speak with her in person. So the floor opened up and we descended down a damp staircase into a pitch black room made out of flesh. Lilith confirmed that this chamber was her true self, not just an extension like what we usually speak to, and that we were now officially inside of her.She told us that having magic meant we now had a fully formed soul, not the simpler artificial "souls" other homonculi have. She wanted our soul. So of course we let her borrow it, use it's "flame" to ignite her own, and now she is "awakened" like us.
>>45271811>Victory.>But also despair.
>>45271902Wait, before you leave can you just explain what you wanted? Just personal curiosity.
>>45271811Your strength was not enough and you were captured by them. You currently reside within their dungeon- surrounded by strange and horrible devices, contemplating the horrible tortures and perverse experiments they will no doubt conduct upon you in order to corrupt and convert your body and soul into some horrid, disgusting abomination.All this would have been tolerable though, if only you had managed to save your children; if only they had spared your children and taken you instead. "Let me face the trials of your hellish insanity alone vile demons, but spare my daughters and sons- you cruel, uncaring, corruptions of my youth" you yell at them, baring your teeth and spitting flame- but your voice falls on deaf ears. They either cannot understand you - lacking true divinity- or they are cruel, uncaring beings straight from the pits of hell.You sit within your cage and contemplate your fate; praying for the safety of your children.>+New Asset: Captured Chimera and 3 Kittens>You have successfully manage to capture and contain -through non-lethal force- An Adult, Male, Chimera and the entirety of it's kittens. They currently reside in a make-shift enclosure within the laboratory until you decide what to do with them. >Even though the Chimera Lion is sedated, he is still extremely aggressive; bellowing out horrible, ear-splitting, roars and lashing out at anyone who draws too close to the bars of his cage.>He does not appear to be sapient and is just an irritated animal taken out of his habitat. >>45271839I didn't lie.We captured the Chimera and the kittens.They're perfectly Safe, Anon.
>>45271918Also there's a chimera problem I keep forgetting to mention. There is a chimera lurking around and we've been meaning to take care of it.So now finally caught up to this thread, we and Lilith are the only two homonculi with actual souls.We decided to mix together the traits of plus sized dolls (they have nearly-unbreakable spines, which makes sense) with soldiers to make the "Amazon". With all the traits of a soldier plus the dolls sense of empathy, strong back, as well as other, assets, she has the perfect blend of fighting ability and charisma to be the leader of the soldiers.We have had chitin for a while now actually, but just learned how to effectively use it.And I think that's about it.Sorry if this was annoying to the people who have been following this, and if I made any mistakes or left something important out let me know.
Here guys have a soldier mid-charge.
>>45271917Every civ needs a sin on its conscience
>>45271778you're missing the point completely my friendnot to mention we're basically arguing to brickwalls, you disagree with me, i disagree with youbut yes, i want organization, i want to be able to see how many people are playing, what their ideas of how the civ should go (even if we dont make those ideas a reality) and its really NOT a democracy, its just a mirage of one. realistically its a dictatorship(Cyclops obviously being the dictator, in a good way) and yes we should have a history of who said or did what, because it adds character and liveliness to the game- and speak for yourself as far as how you see democracy, because i see it differently my friend. not to mention your views on how we would discredit people for good ideas/bad ideas and all that mumbo jumbo shit- as well as blindly following others, no, its called learning when and how to use certain ideas/plans/actions to push the civ forward, and the best way to do that, in my opinion, is to be able to credit/pinpoint people instead of 11 "anons" all posting, with 2-3 of them shitposting and we cant tell whos being serious or not (even though honestly cyclops handles it very, very well)in conclusion, im done arguing with you but seriously consider what im saying. namefag up.>>45271839>>45271902>being this childish>>/reddit-------------------...i know its hard for all of you new friends to accept what cyclops is doing, but trust me, this will be enjoyable, just wait.>>45272013see?-------------->>45272024nice m8, can you color it?
>>45272013We can't tame this thing. Feed it to the VATs, raise its young as our own.
>>45272013>I didn't lie.>We captured the Chimera and the kittens.>They're perfectly Safe, Anon.Th-thanks, Cyclops.So now what? Should we give kittens back to the dad? If so it would undoubtedly be difficult getting them back.Is it at all possible for Lilith to examine and collect genes from the kittens without harming them? Just dropping them in the tank to be analyzed? Or maybe just collecting fur or blood?
>>45272053It's intelligent, we might be able to be friend it. We were subjects of cruel mastery, we shouldn't continue that.
>>45272013Begin sedation and analysis of the entity. Establish method of control, communication or uplifting it to our level of being. Leave it intact.>>45272054Seeking information from the progeny is unlikely to return results. They are not fully developed. We should examine a fully developed entity first. Vivisection and homunculization if possible.
>>45272053I think we should try socializing the kittens at least.Its kind of hard to tell if we should use this out of character knowledge. do we count it as part of our bizarre divine countenence from having a complete soul?
>>45272050I wish. No drawing software, no real coloring pens or pencils at hand. I'll see what I can scrounge up by next weekend, I realize that my normal greyscale doesn't really fit with characters who's hair and eyes are vibrantly colorful.
>>45272054Blood sample is probably our best bet
>>45272105metagame buddy. We have no idea that it's sapient.Instead we should come up with IC actions that will let us develop communication with it.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>45272127>>45272118>>45272105AlrightRoll to befriendTake flood sample
>>45272013We should probably put the kittens out of hearing range of their dad's roars, else they might get upset.
>>45271314>>45271685>>45271811>>45272013Aaaannndd that's the end of our Session for the Week!Thank you all for sticking it out. I hope I made it worth it to stick it out to the end- I realize we went a little late- and I also hope I've continued to deliver on the quality of story telling you've come to expect from me.For those interested in seeing this series continued, the thread has been archived and you can vote for it here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=homonculi as well as catch up on previous sessions.For those dissapointed or sad: I won't apologize for making you give a shit about an animal, but I will make an effort to handle this story better than the constant emotional roller coster that was Cyclops Quest.I didn't think it would be interesting or rewarding writing the capture from our perspective.
>>45272127Agreed. Take blood samples and noninvasive or lethal tissue samples and from adult and infant/adolescent forms.We can begin analysis from there. If necessary we sedate the adult, and vivisect it then rebuild it.
>>45272160For what it's worth, I really liked the change is perspective.Made an already emotional scene more tense and unique, and got some hints at deep lore.
you guys....really need to chill.
>>45272207emotional roller coaster crog!
>>45272160I personally like feelcoasters, after all the only way to truly understand happiness is to have sadness to contrast it with.
>>45272222Quads herald the truth
>>45272105he is also a warrior of the old order who thinks that we are literally the devil. I say we study him/ give him time to acclimate to his confinement, but if he gets to pissy, then Im backing >>45272053, because he is really close to the rest of our family, and they come first
>>45272222>dat pic>recently learned that was the episode filmed after his wife passed away>whyyoudothis.jpg
>>45272160>I will make an effort to handle this story better than the constant emotional roller coster that was Cyclops Quest.but that was ones of the most fun parts!
Now that we're done, found a line in the cyclops civ quest that seemed relevant. Those lucky fuckers who were there for that can ignore, but for those of us who missed it>Souls are not stagnant; they are alive, they change, they constantly shift partners, owners, and a single soul can be used to alight endless vehicles of life. Diverse and powerful souls are independent and cannot be controlled; but plants, microbes, and simple forms of life possess simple souls that are open to suggestion. Over generations they may be shaped, direct, and re-purposed for varied uses as they physically express themselves.
>>45272160Feels coasters are the best though, they actually help one get invested into the story. Either way, thanks for the quest OP.
>>45272218wqdt can tell you it can sometimes, ah, lead to something worse than>>45271902>>45271839
>>45272257Damn it anon, why did you have to type that?
>>45272053>>45272134now that we know of how we were treating it, and how it "seems" non-sapient but i believe it is, we should definitely feed it/ take care of it and NOT kill it unless absolutely necessary. honestly we need to figure out some way to communicate with it, but for now leave it alone (maybe get it a bigger cage if necessary as well..)>>45272127very good idea, might give us some insight and possibly some way to communicate.>>45272121nah its great, some critique if you dont mind, the armor needs to be slightly bigger, and probably covering more of the body, not to mention the spikes(weapons) come from the arms and are projectiles, if you could incorporate that- but for the most part very good, honestly it would probably help cyclops out a lot if u could draw some shit for him (for his posts)>>45272153>seperate the father from the babiesnot sure if serious or not, but probably the worst idea ive ever seen>>45272160>>45272160NO, never apologize for the "constant emotional roller coster that was Cyclops Quest."that was a work of genius, the whole way through, so many feels...honestly dont change anything of how you write, unless you really believe it will improve on how you write.not to mention that whole chimera perspective gave us insight on how the world works and what exactly should be our goal (in my eyes atleast)>>45272207wow crog, where were you?---------------------------------i have one question im not sure the answer to, do we actually know what happened to the master? have we seen his remains?
>>45272322that is a very good qustion
>>45272322The chimera is already separated from its children. If the kids can keep hearing their dad's yells and screams, they may resent us.
>>45272322lunchI am banished by magical realms
>>45272322Thanks, I'll spend some of the upcoming week looking at various references and perhaps I'll rework this particular drawing. More likely I'll just redraw the character in a more static and easy to work with posture because I'm a lazy shitter.
>>45272024>Here guys have a soldier mid-charge.Love it.Love it.
>>45272409Cy, what happened to the Masters Body? Did we bury him when we had yet to awaken? Is he a spooky skeleington now? Or did he just fuck off and die in hole, leaving us alone?
>>45272014Thanks dog, I'll stick around a bit and see how this goes.
>>45272024Oh fuck I scrolled right past this.That's pretty great.We have plenty of general fantasy pics that we've been using that just about fit the characters, but a lot of these characters seem to have weird parts or aspects, and it seems like they'll only continue to be more unique.I'm really looking forward to seeing how these designs progress and all the art of them.
>>45272397....How are you even here then?
>>45272372consider this my friend, since we cant understand the chimera, what makes you think the father cant understand his children and vice versa?yes the father may be bad mouthing us, but the fact is, is that we dont really understand why (yet) and we will figure that out in time, but i REALLY dont think we should seperate them...especially RIGHT after we captured them, it almost seems like we're torturing/punishing them-----also something i've noticed.chimera- its a goat, a lion, and a snake.there are goats around the tower, and most likely snakes and lions somewhere around the tower as well, not to mention all of this text>You fought with everything on the line, you held nothing back- You fought as though every deer, every sparrow, every goat, every beetle, every pheasant and cockatrice to even the reeds of the river edged and cheered you on to victorywhich brings me to conclude that maybe, just maybe, these animals arent talking about a "human" or "homunculi" god, but an animal god(like how a lion is the god/king of the jungle/sahara ETC) and maybe its just figurative talk>>45272397>lunchlunch for 8 hours? holy shit m8 that is magical realm shit>>45272403do what you think is right, but me personally, i dont think you should "redraw" but instead retouch and pay close attention to detail, it might come out better than expected- good luck my friend---------------->>45272427i have a theory but if im right it might ruin the "endgame" and im not sure if cyclops wants that(this is all assuming if im right though)
>>45272160Sorry jumped the gun, I'll get some friends of mine to vote it up when I wake up, Seeya
>>45272469Well, the more chitin we pile on and the more Ayylmao things start getting, the easier my job becomes. >>45272515Thanks for all the advice, I'll probably do both the touchup and the redraw if only to view her from different angles.
>>45272427>Cy, what happened to the Masters Body?Without getting into Meta Knowledge: You dumped it in the trash. Also for those wondering: The Chimera isn't "sapient".The Chimera is "sentient" obviously, but he is no smarter than the sum of his animal parts. His intelligence is comparable to that of a lion, this has obvious implications towards his perspective on the world.ALSO, TO THOSE WHO DESIRE ALL THE LATEST, GREAT AND HOTEST META KNOWLEDGE ON THE SETTING: http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/I now have a Tumblr devoted to world-building and sfw'ish art dumping where I post all manner of draws and writes devoted to or involving the setting we've been using and all enjoying!Feel free to follow and burden my life with world-building questions and drawing requests. http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/
>>45272427>The Master may be dead, but he still lives on>At night his spirit lurks about in the laboratory, pursuing his strange experiments even in death.>With no need to be concerned over his own safety anymore, he is free to dabble with the most destructive magicks, often causing loud explosions, booms, and repetitive thumping to echo throughout the floor>You may hear other, more concerning sounds coming from the lab>The deep, masculine grunting of the Master's ghost>The moans and howls of whatever poor doll or soldier is trapped with him>That's right; if interrupted in his experimentation, the Master will capture and torture whatever foolish homonculus dared enter the lab at night>Only the Technician and I are allowed inside, to help the spirit with his lab work.>That's why it's important for every good little homonculus to stay in bed at night and never, ever, EVER go inside of the laboratory no matter what they hear.At least, that's what Lilith told everyone.
>>45272563no problem m8, we need people like you(and to name a couple others sleepy fag, and that guy who made the cyclopean language/ alphabet ETC) to make this more immersive and easier to play/understand you're doing gods work ego, more power to you>>45272590>Without getting into Meta Knowledge: You dumped it in the trash.so either im right and you wont let the secret out that i might have figured it out, or im wrong and im a jackass for being so confident---also do you h8 me or do you not have alot of time? i would really like to run a civ (and talk with you etc about it) if you do have time though, drop a throw away skype or email-another question, is there any way we can play/help while we arent playing? of course other than drawing etc? for example like the cyclopean language, would you give advantages to things like that or should we not bother with such trivial things
>>45272590>Also for those wondering: The Chimera isn't "sapient".Called it.BEGIN THE VIVISECTIONS!
>>45272702DID SOMEONE SAY BOARDLINE NAZI SCIENCE? I meanyeah, cool, lets see if we can learn about it
Would this be a good time to ask for tips for my weekly session for tomorrow?
>>45272722It's an animal. The author just anthropomorphized it's animal thoughts.Did you feel bad about the Otyugh?No.VIVISECTIONS!Obviously while it's -sedated- We're not MONSTERS
>>45272814Whats the fuck in that?
>>45272814>Not using full grown Chimera and Otyugh as guardians in our near-future mutant fortress of flesh and chitinAlso, while not a contrarian meme, I have another idea on what we could do with the kittens. We should attempt to raise and train them as companions for the soldiers. Like attack dogs, or even riding them into battle.
>>45272903Not against this. Provided they don't need to be homunculized to avoid flaws.The elder one is flawed. How do we know the younger ones won't become flawed in time?Better to examine the elder, correct flaws, and then release again.
>>45272903Why have lesser beings be out guards when we could use thier genetics to make the prefect guard?
>>45272790no myrm, make a very "general" and modest"civ general thread" and dont be a retard when people give you advice--anyways with that, im out, unless theres a civ general thread i will see you guys next saturday
>>45272947Good point. Maybe they could be a sort of advanced guard, to hide our capabilities.Have all our cool homonculus shit patrolling our home, but let the animals loose around the neighboring floors or wherever, just outside our home, to guard against trespassers while not giving outsiders any idea of what we really are.Honestly I'm just looking for excuses why we shouldn't kill the cat, of course, but this still might work.
>>45272903I still want cockatrice pets mostly for Pilgrim
Well guys, I'm exhausted and fucking off to bed now. See you all next weekend.
