Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/45260844/Our Current Stats: http://pastebin.com/DfAqsxvaImage Gallery (Floor Maps & Genealogy): http://imgur.com/a/yzpQNYou've finally entered into your 2nd year of independence from your deceased Master and since then your people have grown significantly and have come to terms well enough with their independence and individuality. The people have larger, longer and more vivid moments of independence and the first, small, steps to a societal inclination are truly beginning to blossom. Previously: The Technician and Lilith were able to developed a new Administrative Military unit, The "Amazon". Your people began exploring further into the upper and lower levels of your tower; discovering the "canyon" (B2-B10) below and the "kennels"(Floor2) above . Lilith and The Technician grew closer together as The Technician's intelligence and creativity has finally begun to emerge- graphically. Your community was also able to detain -alive- the Chimera and his 3 kittens- they remain locked up in your laboratory. Collect Genetics. Expand the Psych. Establish your Independence. Create Beauty.((2nd post INC, please wait a moment))
>>45401798+Current Environmental Development+ Spring 2nd year(Cycle repeats: Spring)Winter has passed and bloomed into Spring; this has a few implications:-It is wet, horribly humid, rainy and fog permeates most levels with any sort of open-air access during the mornings.-The stair case leading to the upper levels isn't as flooded, but the small pond on FLOOR 1 has become swollen with tadpoles, insects and small guppies and minnows.-Most forested areas (particularly B1) have begun seeing a dramatic increase in traffic between animals as they breed and rear their young on the spring growth.-Floor B2 ("Canyon" level) is horribly crowded with nesting bird and flying reptiles colonies on the ledges of the broken levels. There has also been mixed reports of 1 or 2 mating Wyvern couples. +Current Development+ FLOOR 2 (Chimera Kennel) Mysteriously Clean?-The bodies and skeletons previously disposed of on Floor 2 via the Chimera have started to disappeared. Despite the absence of the Chimera; no new bodies are piling up and now even the (intact) skeletons seems to have begun to disappear. +Current Development+ The Pilgrim goes off to seek Adventure.-The Pilgrim has made his goodbyes to the family.-He has patched things up with Lilith and "went back into the vat". Lilith in turn has updated his genetics, made some last minute perfections and corrections. He has however turned down the INSEKTVENE blade and wishes to continue using The Late Master's Blade.-The Pilgrim had no special goodbye for The Technician; they held one another and The Pilgrim thanked him and kissed him on the cheek.-Lilac has left with the Pilgrim. They don't quite understand their feelings, but they think they may love one another.You guys can go ahead and start rolling:2 Actions (d20) and 1 Idea (d100)

Rolled 4 (1d20)can someone fill me in on what we're doing so i dont have to spend several hours going through previous threads?>>45402194this sounds like a priority, got my vote.
>>45402228You... YOU AREN'T THAT CYCLOPS OP THAT ABANDONED A PERFECTLY GOOD CIV TO GTFO AND DO WHATEVER WITH EXACTLY 0 FORESHADOWING AREN'T YOU?
>>45402129>search the old Master's study again for magical items or books>Roll 11/20>THE ONLY DOUBLE YOU CAN GET ON A 20 ROLL.>INTERESTING RESULTS.There are two "libraries" within the Arcane Observatory: 1 in the Laboratory that mainly deals with everything from mundane, basic chemistry, herbology to significantly more advanced methods of arcane study, mostly focused on, but not entirely limited to Alchemy.There is, though, yet another smaller more personal library within The Late Master's study within his bedroom. Despite the years the room remains largely intact with very little wear or degradation; the laborers and even the dolls still occasionally coming inside to dust, clean and tidy up the space when the urge overcomes them. The Technician decides they'll visit the space to see if they can make sense of any of The Late Master's personal texts. They feel as though they're doing something horribly wrong and guilty by stepping into The Late Master's domain, but their drive for knowledge and understanding persist and edges them on forward into the unknown. The Technician filters through some of the texts, "Remedial Arcane" sounds like a good place to start- it's the oldest and most worn book in the shelf. Instinct tells The Technician it's most likely outdated, but they sit down at The Late Master's desk, turn on an oil lamp and begin to read.Mind, Body, & Soul.
>>45402536Yes, they are that CyclopsOP, and they did so because IRL got in the way of things.
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>45402194Supporting as most logical thing to do.

>>45402734Oh well, i would just have liked a word of explanation.This CIV seems cool enought too i guess.
>>45401935>Idea: Develop metaphysics.>Roll 70/100>Honest, solid, divisible by 5 Number.>Reliable by Results."Everything Mundane and Ordinary can be qualified and quantified by the acknowledgement of Matter and Energy reacting with one another, but to get at the root and basic principles of Arcane magics and Super natural forces we must first become self-conscious of our Body, Mind and Soul.""The Body is the vessel, it is the universal agent of all physical, true, real, matter: chemical elements, bonds and other forms of inorganic matter are the very base-line building blocks of what constitutes "The Body". Most living beings are primarily composed of the Element Carbon or in some very rare cases Silicone- this can be considered an expression of "The Body." ""The Soul is an agent of change, chaos, it is limitless undirected raw energy endlessly produced, consumed and present in an eternal cycle respected by all forms of Organic and ethereal life. Supernatural or non-physical beings are entirely composed of "Soul" until they can acquire a body in the form of matter. Arcane-physicists theorize that the universe as we know it was most likely produced when Soul first came into contact with matter and that subsequent soul was created upon the development of life- allowing for the continued expansion and complexity of reality.""The Mind is simultaneously the most mysterious, obscure, subtle and most powerful force in the universe as it deals directly with perception and influence on reality. It is most well known though as the force that allows beings to be beings and the conscious manipulation of both body and soul- to manipulate matter and energy."The Technician finds this a little of their head, but they at the very least feel a little bit more magical.
>>45402974>Most living beings are primarily composed of the Element Carbon or in some very rare cases Silicone>SiliconEI guess the dolls count as the latter.
>>45402059>Ponder mana>Roll 28/100>Low Quarter Failure. >Subsequent rolls being used for one singular purpose.The Technician spends a bit longer skimming through The Arcane Remedial Text, but eventually becomes overwhelmed and instead switches over to another text, "Mana Holistics".For a book it doesn't seem to have that much in the way of words; it's filled with illustrated diagrams, pictures, and step by step instructions that seem to promise magical results of some kind? The book is just as old as the Arcane Remedial Text and some of the lines and writing are a little faded, but The Technician sets it down and begins mimicking and pantomiming the illustrated movements in the pages. After a while they begin to feel it- inside them as well as all around them. A deep, nostalgic warmth; it burns. It burns as if they've spent their entire life in the cold- it's hot, awkward and unfamiliar.The Technician doesn't know what to do with this feeling, it's overwhelming and causes them to tremble, their knees become weak and they feel nauseous and pent up, falling down onto their knees- their joints, nerves, muscles, lungs and heart ache.They finally extend out their hand and produce a bright, vivid, burst of fire- a quick ember that sparkles violently and produces more smoke than anything.They then fall over; feeling as though their entire body had been sapped of all physical energy. Their mouth terribly dry. >+The Technician has caste their first spell: will the cycle repeat itself?>The Other Homonculi immediately sense This.>They loose all of their composure and come crawling into the room; needy and desperate.The Technician wakes up with about 20 Homonculi- mostly dolls and soldiers- hovering and piled around him obsessively. "The Master?"
>>45402974Well so then we can start developing aristotelean logic and build up from there.

>>45403456>Non invasive chimera sample goes in the vat>Roll 17/20>High-End nearly complete success.The Technician is a little too tired and a little too buried underneath a few dozen Homonculi to do lab work at the moment, so Lilith must step in for a moment to pick up the slack. She requests the assistance of the Laborers feeding and tending to the four Chimera to try and collect non-invasive samples: Saliva, Claw clippings, Fur, Scales and Stool samples so Lilith may begin breaking them down and understanding them within the Vats. The process is not without it's hurdles: The Male Chimera is extremely aggressive and noncompliant- preventing most samples but a few hairs and scales from being collected. The kittens on the other hand are soft, floppy, and haven't even fully developed their snake-tails yet and are very easy to take samples from.

The excessive amount of laborers you have are sent out to do a simple enough task: weatherproof the Arcane Observatory. They, they get a little carried away:-The Laborers weather and water proof your entire communities dwelling, they even manage to re-shingle the roof, re-tile the floors as well as completely scrub, wash and clean every single room no matter if they have rug, wood or stone flooring. -They don't, however, stop at there- They also go out of their way and begun making customization, extensions and improvements onto the observatory: they march out in droves to cut and pilfer building materials in the form of stone, brick and wood, they haul back buckets of water to make mortar with and start building into the hallway outside of the observatory to start including it as an extension. -They begin making more "home" products to make life just a little bit more comfortable: they start producing lamp oil from nuts instead of fat as well as fancy soaps from fruits and animal fat.-They entirely rebuild the one bathroom and turn it into an actual bathroom; it still houses only a single toilet (only the Technician goes to the bathroom), but it now has at least six baths capable of being heated by burning wood. Your people LOVE hot baths.-Their final installment though is something they themselves don't entirely understand, but felt a strong compulsion to make although they were unable to entirely complete it.-It looks like.. Some kind of Rune-Enscriped Bell? Hovering over an Anvil with distinct arcane-looking patterning and engraved.. what look like Gold and Silver paneling?? -When the Laborers are asked where they got the materials, "The Bell was reclaimed and polished from an abandoned dwelling on Floor 1- The Gold and Silver was recycled from coins."

They're accompanied by a small escort of Soldiers and The Amazon unit.The Amazon brings a small packed lunch for The Technician. The weather is simply perfect and ideal: the heat and humidity are a little much, but wading through the small river's waters keeps them cool and refreshed as they prowl around for genetic samples of amphibious and aquatic fauna. The Technician (to their great delight) manages to catch a few Crayfish, a couple of Frogs and Toads, a small black and red Sunfish and a Salamander that's nearly as long as The Technician is stall- it's so heavy and slippery have to carry it with both hands. After their little safari they have a small picnic under the supervision of their escort company and then return home later that evening. >+STRUCTURAL GENE CATALOGUED: MUSCULAR, DEXTEROUS TONGUE.>+STRUCTURAL GENE CATALOGUED: EXCESSIVE MUCOUS PRODUCTION & EXTERNAL MUCOUS MEMBRANE.>+STRUCTURAL GENE CATALOGUED: INCREASED LUNG CAPACITY. >+WEAPONIZED GENE: CATALOGUED: PROJECTILE SPIT

The Technician slips back into his white, sewn, little lab-speed suit and makes their way back into the laboratory to get to work cataloging and upgrading the genetics of the community; they plan on giving everyone within the community a slightly-tweaked and re-furbished version of the increased-lung capacity. It's a simple enough mod that should be easily integrated into your people's current make up. Lilith is already up however, slowly creeping up from the Vat; crawling out of the Mana, dripping and slithering down and across the lab floor, "You did it, didn't you? You should have told me sooner- I can smell it on you, taste it on you." She extends her long, ash-tipped claws to slowly, methodically, grasp around The Technician's small body, pulling them in closer."Show me. Touch my dream, make it lucid, make me feel your warmth, let me witness this conscious reality and understand fully the breadth of what it means to be alive, My Master, My Pyre, My Alpha and Omega." Lilith holds closely the Technician in her Arms, "Love me." >+Global Genetics Updated and Acknowledged, Structural improvement: Lung Capacity has increased, this has significantly increased the energy and activity levels of your Homonculi population and their ability to do more and longer hours of work and strenuous activity. >+Individual Genetics Updated and Acknowledged, Ouroboroic Incest: The Technician has begun to significantly and more efficiently produce Mana- less of it is being process through caloric intake and more of it seems to.. come from "nothing"?

>>45405346>The wonderful world of sustainable tree harvesting and giganto-bonsai>Roll 11/20>THE ONLY DOUBLE YOU CAN GET ON A 20 ROLL.>INTERESTING RESULTS.The Laborers have been on a roll recently and are ever in the market for more materials and reliable sources of resources, namely lumber. There are just a handful of viable tree species capable of growing within the aggressive, extremist environment of the Dungeon Tower, but the laborers have been methodically studying and coming to an understanding of them using their inborn horticulturalist tendencies in an effort to work around one obvious problem:Many of the Trees roots are supporting the compromised stone work of the Floors they've taken root and grown upon. Floor B1 may very well hypothetically be entirely self-supported and kept together due to the excessive growth of the trees and other plants growing on top of it due to the roots splitting, separating the stone, but at the same time hugging onto it tightly. With all this in mind the Laborers have begun to be excessively conservative with what they can and cannot harvest in terms of lumber; often having to settle for fallen branches, logs or scavenging from what very few dead trees there are. Thankfully though, most of your lumber needs begin and end with heating a couple of baths or fixing furniture. This lack of wood though is severely limiting the expansion of the home though.The Laborers begin testing and seeing if new Trees and Foliage can be artificially planted.

They immediately isolate themselves and go off into The Late Master's study to go and teach themselves more about Magic and the Arcane nature of everything up to and including reality. They become mild to wildly obsessed, overcome with an insatiable urge to understand, learn, compile information and make-sense of every text available to them from what was once previously obscure, difficult to understand and foreign literature now seems to be read and understood so naturally. Nobody sees much of The Technician for a week; life continues without them- The Amazon Unit and Lilith go about taking care of administrative efforts and so forth, but the mood is quiet, awkward and your community feels the absence of The little Technician. Eventually they come back out of the Study.They're greasy, they have dark bags underneath their eyes and they've become slightly emaciated and sore, but there's a certain.. deep, deep, distant look in their eyes and a static, horrendous and ominous aura clinging to them.They're literally picked up by the dolls and immediately washed before being fed by the laborers and then put to bed. The Technician sleeps for an entire day and awakes.. seemingly back to normal..but.They keep gazing, looking back and forth- seemingly staring, glaring and paranoid of nothing.

>Rolling for Event: 95>High End Roll, High-near complete success>Themetic/Topical Results, piggy-back on current events.You are The Technician and you've just finished your week long Marathon of Arcane Study. Your eyes are strained and there's a deep, horribly, anxious and burning feeling deep inside your heart that no amount of pillows, silks and cushions can comfort. You eventually fall into a restless, disingenuous sleep; twisting and turning back and forth under the covers until you eventually begin to dream. Bright lights, sparkling, shimmering, irritating, loud, blinding incandescence permeates your world- you try to cover your eyes, but only then you realize the light is coming from inside you and there's no where to escape. The world around you though quickly rises forth with chaos and voices; initially mumbling, hushed, whispers that quickly enclose around you and rise to the deafening roar of a crowd a million billion voices eternal. And then suddenly Darkness. Darkness so absolute and all consuming that it smothers all light and noise, but you're not afraid; it is comforting, gentle, cool and calming a blanket of shadow immersing your body in it's comforting embrace."My Child. My sweet, adopted, babe of alchemy- You've grown ever more beautiful, your hymn sings out across the dream so uniquely and sweetly, at once you were naught but a single note easily ignored and now I can't help but to linger and listen so fondly." A figure of calm, still, shadow steps forward. They're towering, their presence seems to encompass every single absence of light and complete nothing'ness- the end and beginning of everything. And yet they tenderly kneel before you to extend a gentle cold hand of void, "You are precious to me, you are not of my brood, but you are eternally precious and carry no more or less favor than any other of my beloved children, but I have a great and selfish favor to ask of you. My darling, will you humor my request?">Y/N?
>>45407807NOPE!NOPE NOPE NOPE!
>>45407807Why not, what can go wrong?
>>45407807YesWhat's the worst that could happen?
>>45407807of course, but try to suggest some type of "reward" in returnwe're not whores now, are we?(try to be nice about it though, we STILL dont want to upset...whoever this is)
>>45407807>Nshe calls us precious, but does not elaborate on what she wants from us.
>>45407807That depends. What exactly do you want us to do?
>>45407992something tells me you already know what she wants from us, dont be scared crog, walk into the darkness and stay a while

>>45406662Reyvateils aren't robot though. The series makes a pretty clear distinction with maintenance droids also appearing, while Reyvateils are considered as synthetic lifeforms created from biofluid and cultivated in special nurturing tanks, excepting for a subclass of them that is completely human and born the natural way.
>>45408180but the important thing is that our entire sum, or the sum of all of our parts will be the same, our vision the same, after all, the only thing that seperates us is what our "job" is or how we see our "duty" to this life-look at that laborer who wanted to be a warrior (and then pilgrim was born)its all just roads, let him take it, please.
>>45408217The game also makes a point to remember you that, regardless of kind, they're all born with a USB port somewhere in their body.I think robogirl is a decent approximation.
>>45408229umm? I'm trying to say "God" is going to manipulate Techie with sweet words and contradictory promises.
>>45408474and? let "god" whisper sweet nothings into the techies ear, we will learn much.no?you know you want to.
>>45407807>YesYou don't have to say a thing, they understand your every thought, fear, ambition and hangups intrinsically and intuitively, "Thank you, my pale child." They hold your hand and it seems to suck the heat right out of you, but you do not feel cold; you feel an overwhelming natural sense of calmness and relief as if every point up until now you had been uncomfortably anxious and warm. The two of you walk together and they begin to speak, "There is a child, not unlike yourself- They are alone, they are afraid, they are angry and they have spirited themselves away from me to where even I cannot find and save them. But, just as you are now a part of me, so too are they and in truth I can still feel their sadness, fear and anger- I can feel them and I know that they must be saved and brought back to me, brought back home."As they speak, the darkness below you ripples and forms waves underneath the two of you as if you walked upon water. In it's depths though, you see a vision of fire & smoke and rushing forward and from it a herd of galloping horses- quickly getting stripped down to their bleached bleached bones, fire replacing their muscles as they burn and glass the land spread out before them into charred nothingness. "Ignis Solus, she likes to tell herself.. 'burn alone'- a tired and antiquated phrase passed down from a confused and angry age." The being turns to you and lowers themselves to your level; their shroud seamlessly forming into the shadows below as they hold their empty hands forward to clasp around your tiny palms. "I need you to save her. I need you to climb the tower and save this lost and confused daughter of mine. Will you do this for me, Pale Child?"
>>45408564OkayWhere is she?
>>45408564>"Ignis Solus, she likes to tell herself.. 'burn alone'-"Your latin sucks balls and we're outta here.
>>45408564>i need you to climb the tower and save this lost and confused...the tower we live in? and you say you werent interested in me/us before but coincidentally shes at the top of our tower?(assuming)very strange. but ok
>>45408669>Your latin sucks balls.I know that was directed at an NPC, but I do this largely improvised and may have taken that a little more personally than perhaps might be appropriate.
>>45408757I'm sorry i was just joking but it came out bad, i didn't want to offend you.We cool?
>>45408637>>45408669>>45408706>>45408759>>45408564Your doubts however become greater in your heart and you become more and more uncomfortable and unsure of what's going on; you've heard them out, but you don't know if you've what it takes to save someone, if you even know what "saving" them exactly entails. The being begins again to try and console and asure you, but they're interrupted. >Koschei Rolls 65/100>Needed at least a 45>Baba Koschei reaches out to you within the void.A light; cold but a bright and vivid burning blue wisp in the darkness. Gently humming and calling out to you in the distance, "No, no please no, Oh please, god no." "Don't listen to her. Please, Please, I beg of you."Louder, but it still remains just a faint whisper in the dark- a wind chime, gently blown and bullied by the breeze and flow of the dream."Please, I made you- I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Please forgive me, please don't listen to her. I'm sorry. I'm sorry!"The Shadow retreats and takes with it the dream- You wake up.

Rolled 54 (1d100)>>45409597Supporting, let us have glorious chimeric steads to ride into battle.
>>45409439>update our family on what's going on, ask for their opinions!>Roll 20/20>Complete and unarguable success, full disclosure to the current extent of your abilities.The Technician lays there awake and contemplating their dream; this is the second time they've witnessed that shadowy figure in their dreams, but the name "Baba Koschei" is something entirely new to them.They've never heard or read of that name when they were piling through the physical texts, journals and any other source material around the Arcanum; although as the Pilgrim and Lilith were able to note- The coins did have the phrase, "Burn Alone" minted onto them.The Technician decides the most logical step would be to inquire Lilith to see if she knew anything of this "Baba Koschei".Lilith welcomes The Technician and slithers out, prepping to sexually harass the small Admin, "What do you know of the person "Baba Koschei?"Lilith immediately stops. >Lilith Counter rolls 15>Lilith can't beat a 20There's a long awkward pause, Lilith attempts to slither back into the vat, "Lilith, what do you know of the name or person, "Baba Koschei?" Lilith loses some of her composure; she twists uncomfortably, coiling around herself, ashamed and embarassed."Ex-Master: Disposed of through complete organic decomposition via the garbage disposal level and then fed to indigenous Otyugh to completely bioremediate any lingering genetic registration material." Lilith avoids eye contact, "Initially felt guilty; short-term solution to long term problem, but than efforts towards grooming The Technician were successful- phenomenally successful, exceeded all perceived expectations." "Exceeded perceived expectations of even my own craftsmanship- The Technician has become greater than the whole of either of our parts. I no longer regret what I did. It was a calculated risk."
>>45409162I wonder if we can sequester a secondary bedroom for communicating with these beings.Make it a meditation room, comfortable but not extravagant. Research mana foci and whatever else is needed to boost the technician's "signal" for stable connections.Have the "bed" be a small vat shallowly filled with mana liquid, and the Techie just sits there and meditates if he wants to contact them. Lilith should be able to interface with the vat to monitor Techie's vitals and POSSIBLY pull him out if something goes wrong.
>>45410001OF COURSE the Master was female. I'm less surprised and more curious about Lilith's feelings about the whole thing, or why there was such effort to scrub the name.Still, looks like someone's not quite dead yet. Or completely insane.
>>45410001if i read this right, it could totally be that lilith is a lot more powerful than we're seeing...>>45410145technically she said it was the "previous master" or ex-master...not necessarily "the master"
>>45410340OUR previous master was male She's not talking about baba koschie I think
>>45410418Baba explicitly stated she was responsible for the Tech's creation yo, see >>45409162
>>45410515she was responsible for the philospher's stone creation maybe and indirectly us as well
>>45409597>animal husbandry and animal taming>Roll 96/100>High end, nearly complete and perfect success.Meanwhile the laborers have less morbid work ahead of them: The garden space above the Arcane Observatory feels lonely with the few vegetables, herbs and chickens that frequent it, but at the same time it feels over-crowded with how many laborers there are within the local area of your community. They split up into several teams and small groups: One focused on finding and domesticating local animals so they may reliably take advantage of the natural products and resources they produce. Another group is responsible for maintain, grooming and establishing proper shelter, feed, and pasture land appropriate for any new livestock that will be accepted into the community- the Roof Garden is simply not appropriate for herding animals. The third group focuses on taming the Chimera Lion and his Kittens. The Laborers overall have quite ideal results:-They are successfully able to re-tame over a dozen or so of the feral goats from the herds that occasionally frequent the local area of floor 1 and B1. They have begun shepherding them and keeping them grazed through a cycle that takes them through FLOOR 1 and B1 so as to not over-graze the two areas.-One of the blocked passages in the hallway of FLOOR 1 has been converted into a large stable- lined with straw and a wooden wall and gate built into it to keep the goats safe inside. >>45406129>Ideally can never ignore a 20-The Chimera has also been being fed and taken care of methodically and regularly and has very slowly come to terms with it's keepers, but the real moment of change happened when it's kittens were returned.-The Chimera is not in anyway domesticated and is only barely tamed, but he has at least stopped trying to burn laborers alive and seems placated. -The Kittens pen is recycled and the 4 of them are briefly moved and a much larger more comfortable enclosure is made for them within the lab.
>>45410001So is she the chimera original master?

>>45410418Sounds to me like baba koshei made us, then died (?) And we were repossessed by our last master.Might make sense, I doubt a master studying "remedial magic" could have created us, or a philosopher stone. Unless he kept the book for sentimentality.Shit, we don't have an age. Were the plus size dolls made by a teenager?

>>45409413>Experiment with the forge>Roll 15/20>High end number divisible by 5>Reliable results.Despite Lilith's disturbing confessional; work needs to continue although The Technician feels it might be best if they give The Philosopher's stone some space for the time being. The Technician think's this is an ideal opportunity to experiment with.. The Forge?The Laborers have been addressing it as a Mana-Forge, "Keep in mind, we're just quoting what it says in the provided source material" one laborer says as it waves a book entitled, "Arcane Industrial Enchantment". They admit however that they're unsure if it works properly as none of them have been since able to get it to respond, they also admit begrudgingly that even if they were able to turn it on they lack the technical and administrative insight to operate such a device. The Technician simple touches the bell. They Immediately regret this decision. The Gold and Silver Lining on and below bell light up and the forge seems to just SUCK the SOUL right out of The Technician as it begins to hum all the while The Technician spasm violently- The Laborers pry The Technician off of the bell and rush him back inside the laboratory where they place them back into the Vats. The Technician's slightly emaciated body seems to suck up the Mana like a sponge and de-wrinkle almost in real time.Lilith is at wits end and lectures the laborers, "What the HELL did you guys do to The Tech Unit?!? They're the only one we HAVE, I CAN'T MAKE MORE OF THEM." The Technician eventually interjects, "They were doing what they were supposed to do; this was entirely my fault."The Technician admits though that it was an important learning process: The Forge runs on Mana and that The Technician is not capable of producing enough to power an Industrial Mana-Forge. If we're going to use it, it would probably be best to do it with.. Gloves or some form of protection(?) and to pour Mana into the forges metal grooves.
>>45411173>"What the HELL did you guys do to The Tech Unit?!? They're the only one we HAVE, I CAN'T MAKE MORE OF THEM."This is both very amusing and quite interesting. What about the Technician prevents it from being replicated?
>>45411227We have a soul.
>>45410001>>45410600>>45411173AAAaaaannnddd that's three.So, here, I've felt the pacing for today's quest was a little off, but we've got ONE MORE TURN LEFT.Do you guys want to end it on some Actions or do you want to spend it on making what -even I will admit- would be a CRAZY fucking useful, awesome, totally radical Salamander flamer unit: >>45410942No Bias though, I mean, you guys decide what you want to do.But I'm not going to lie- Flamethrower unit would be super fun to do.

MILD PARALYTIC VENOM: Stored within mucusPROJECTILE SPINES: VARIANT (Short, sharp, cheap, many)The main strategy is to litter the field with paralytic slime, rather than trying to accurately fire an inherently inaccurate substance. The spines are designed to only break skin, allowing the slime venom to seep through wounds to do their work. Missed spines will land in mucus, making it hazardous just to walk into slime. The lung capacity is necessary incase a wrestling takedown is required and the unit needs to hold their breath to prevent self-suffocation from slime.
>>45411311>>45411320>>45411322>>45411333>>45411342>>45411358>Complimentary Final Action>No roll needed: Success brought through overwhelming Consensus reachedWhile in the Vats the Technician ponders and reviews the collected and various catalogued genetic traits and features your people and The Technician's own efforts have managed to compile and some of them seem to stand out a little more than the others.Lilith can sense what's to come, she's excited and eager with overwhelming anticipation, but she won't admit she's still troubled and frightened of what The Technician thinks of her after her confession of user temperance... The Technician addresses her in the Vat and she jerks her body to attention- her porcelain flesh shivering anxiously like lace in a gentle breeze. "Excessive Mucous production, Chitin Infusion, Projectile spit, Incendiary Lung with combustible powder.." The Technician starts listing of traits, reaching over to Lilith and grabbing her alabaster flesh begins to molding and shaping it like clay- reaching deeper still inside of her to pull out and piece together bones, rolling the flesh in their hand and stringing it in line like they were sewing to form organs and entrails- tying knots in their work and seems. Still, no words have been spoken- but Lilith doesn't stop The Technician; grazing meekly tracing her horrid claws against their small body as she lowers herself and fully allows the Technician into her seamless white court of blood and bone, "W-what.. what are you doing, My Master?" "Fire." The Technician finally admits, "Black and Red, Flames- I'm, " They mull the words over in their head, "I'm inspired." They then holster their thighs around to keep themselves and their "workspace" steady- Lilith doesn't resist; she's become far too enamored by the Technician's aggressive and dominant behavior when they're working.
>>45411551Guardian SetPARTIAL WING DEVELOPMENTCHITINMUSCULAR, DEXTEROUS TONGUE.Combine these three genes to create hard pseudo-appendages. Rather than fly, these heavy but surprisingly dextrous "wings" defend the self or others with hard chitin.

>>45411551>>45411619>>45411769i strongly urge that we think more of just a weapon, and go deeper- what personality they would have, what they do would when we're not at war, if we're constantly at war, would it effect them after killing thousands,millions?etc...idk>>45411815>what are you doing, my masterwe should REALLY see what we can do about having communication with lilith(the technician short term, collective long term)
>>45411905Allow me to expand on that, the Venom is in both the projectile spines and the Stringer
>>45411551Makeshift genocide VenomStingerBy injecting targets with a small amount of Homunculi immune bodies, the target is temporarily granted the immune response of a Homunculi.....and when these bodies eventually die, the target finds itself with no immune system at all, much like an AIDS victim.
>>45411929So what you're saying is that we need to do morally dubious psychological experiments? :D
>>45411973Why don't we just develop an acid venom?Like, you know those snakes that can kill you within seconds of being bitten?That. Lets do that.
I had an Idea for a model based on a laborer, with the mana analysis borrowed from Lilith.It could help trait gathering by performing field analysis.
>>45412010my point is that we need to be more than just another civ who will take over the world or kill people who dont look like uswe need to be more than that.>>45411973if we do procede, we need to stress very clearly that it will be NONLETHAL-almost always.>>45412060im not sure i understand your question/statement BUT i dont think that you can use "lilith" as a model/template/anything
>>45411551Bone ArtConverting the bone launchers of Soldiers, or rather the organ that produces more bone spines.By enlarging, duplicating, and attaching multiple of these organs together, one can in theory consciously construct bone structures of a certain standard of size and shape. Objects made in this manner would have the benefit of improved structural strength due to no action that goes against the "grain" of the material. Compared to carving, where one works around the structure in place, Bone Art focuses on the foundation and builds it to their desire.
>>45412133>my point is that we need to be more than just another civ who will take over the world or kill people who dont look like uswe need to be more than that.Agreed. Maybe we can slowly phase out the soldier caste as the game progresses.
>>45411815This isn't like the previous moments where in Lilith was mass-producing pre-registered models herself, nor is it even like their collaborative effort when they were creating the administrative amazon unit. No, this is entirely The Technician's own will and genius at work and truly now does Lilith get to experience the full breadth and dimension of The Small Masters ingenuity and technical skill."Greater than the sum of either of our parts. The Joy of Crea- A-h-oh-Oh God" Lilith is cut off from her monologuing; The Technician is being a little insatiable: they flick their hand to the side and witness The Technician themselves has Claws not too dissimilar to herself, but they're so small, dainty, precise and delicate. The Gaze of the Technician though is something else; their pupils and irises dilate, spin, change in size and shape seemingly manually at the internal commands of The Technician."Pl-please- " Their hands; making such small incisions, cutting, slicing, breaking, bending and molding bone- such subtle, concise actions, it's all just a little too much for Lilith. "I'm sorry. I'm working with Incendiary Chemicals and this needs to be perfect. It needs to be perfect. You're going to have to hold on."Lilith is currently horrendously over-stimulated. It's so slow, so methodical and deliberate, every little movement, every little decisive action is like the work of an artist and she is the mantle, but it is a long and drawn out process that constantly keeps her on edge. Her true body starts leaning against the back of her floor, sprawling out; shivering, stuttering, "Are, are you done yet?" "Almost".Lilith starts breathing in small embarrassing hiccups and whispers to herself "Oh God." The Technician assures her once more, "Almost done. 95% done- Germination process will be ready in a moment. Patience please."
>>45412186>Maybe we can slowly phase out the soldiersee no, thats exactly THE OPPOSITE of what i want, while the "soldier" model was/is originally the average militant unit or whichever you wish to call it, but what happens during peace? do we just get rid of them? what do they do?sit in a room like the 10,000 terracotta soldiers, but alive and well?>>45412274i dont understand, lilith speaks out but is she actually ok with this?i really wish for some insight on how she feels about it

With the right modifications, an extremely focused flame can be achieved that is useful for precision welding.yeah, I'm out.
>>45412508sounds serious enough, we will see your input next thread?(as this one is coming to end soon i believe)>>45412537doesnt mean she shouldnt be watched, just because she is important to our survival and other matters. thats all im saying
>>45411815>>45412274Eventually The Technician finishes up and the quivering mess that is Lilith gently lifts and carries The Technician out of the Vats and onto the Laboratory floor with a shivering body before slumping and laying limp like a piece of meat. The Technician goes off to have a long hot bath.>+New Model Unlocked+: "Salamander" Unit>Mottled red and black Skin-suit, vividly bright red hair and a complimentary matching duller toned flesh; The Salamander unit is based off of the psyche and build of Soldier units with a few slight modifications and designs- namely the addition of a Fire-breathing organ grafted onto their arm that seems to extend onto their bodies. Their flamethrower produces a horrible, torrent of flame from a uniquely combustible powder produced by them, like wise; their skin-suits have pores that secret a kind of mucous to prevent themselves from being burned alive. Their skinsuits can also be pulled over their heads and faces with specifically designed "Chitin Goggles", forming an actual genuine body suit as opposed to the leotards your other Homonculi wear. The Technician makes three copies of this particular unit; their registration and birthing all happen rather seamlessly and they're welcomed into as new members of the community.Personality wise though, they seem to take after the soldiers psyche with their own individual traits taken into perspective: They have an almost unhealthy obsession with fire and heat.
>>45412640AAAAaaaaalright and that's time. Although the events in this session might not have been as exciting as other sessions; I hope everybody that stuck around had a good time and that my story-telling was up to the standard that you've come to expect out of 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.I'll be "around", but I'm trying to order a PIZZA because I'm tired and hungry.
>>45412640Neato. What should we do next?
>>45412640I can't wait till we have to make a Fire Department because of them.
>>45412769I have a question When are we going to encounter another race? Like, elves, or humans or something. I'm curious to see how that would play out
>>45412798>I can't wait till we have to make a Fire Department because of them.I would not at all be surprised if that happened.
>>45412640we made psycho killer-made, distant pyromaniacs.we can work with this.-------->Although the events in this session might not have been as exciting as other sessions; I hope everybody that stuck around had a good time and that my story-telling was up to the standard that you've come to expect out of mehow come you look so down on your work/art?even if you drew inpiration from something else, doesnt mean your work is not good and credible.>>45412837it would probably require some very lucky(or unlucky?) rolls, or some semblence of ..."structure" for lack of a better term or else chaos would ensue, no?>>45412798but they wouldnt be the firemen themselves no? would there be infighting on who wants to start another fire or something of that nature?...who knows>>45412773nothing?i guess we can plan?
>>45412837Considering we captured the Chimera that was seemingly killing everything two floor below us, probably not too long.
>>45412773We should try learning how to replicate the alchemy vat technology either through biology or machinery. We should also create some form of generating large quantities of energy through biology or machinery. We should consider some means of improving our basic biology through the introduction of synthetic materials, pure biology can only take an organism so far. We should aspire to incorporate the clear structural superiority of the machine with the natural creativity and evolutionary potential of the organic and thus receive the benefits that come with both.
>>45408438Not really, since that ignores the fact that their bodies are organic in nature instead of being machines, and that they have self-learning systems and self-awareness akin to that of the humans, while the maintenance droids obey preprogammed instructions and can't do things outside their programming: in other words, Reyvateils have a Will (H-Wave activity), while things like viruses, most data-based lifeforms and robots don't.And the Install Port doesn't really factor into that .
Is it over?
>>45414206For the most part.
>>45412640yay, we have Pyro now.
