In a distant system an Eyegore twitches its many eyes and sensor organs as a significant gravity well approaches. The satellite Reconstructed rotates where it drifts in orbit over the desolate world the Armada and Armatocere used for negotiations and looks out towards the edge of the system. It could sense something arrived at the edges of the system and it took several minutes for the image to appear on one of the remote drones.A fleet of Armatocere civilian ships appear, first stretched to impossible lengths then snapping almost comically into their correct proportions, and their engines flare with light as they fly toward the planet. A message soon follows, transferred through the flower-like Armatocere satellite that faced the systems star, saying they were there ahead of the Eldertrees arrival to prepare the world for their visit.Your Eyegore sends your message of welcome and watches as the treeships descend on the planet. Roots splitting from the large bioships to boring into the ground of the rocky plains surrounding the ruins that had become an unofficial diplomatic meeting zone. Branches spread as leaves unfurl from hidden sleeves and release clouds of pollen or spores that drift across on the thin winds quickly creating a haze around their landing zone. Those ships not rooting themselves on the surface keep in orbit over the location, shuttles wrapped in bark beginning to move back and forth from the surface as they prepared.

>>48541458We know the masked are behind this So this is likely a ploy to weaken usCan we sence there location by focusing on all necrotic energy around us then excluding all that we can control. What's left is likely an immortal

>>48541498Unlocked:Grav-Thrusters: These sub-light thrusters allow a craft to "surf" along existing gravity waves granting an extremely high rate of acceleration and maneuverability the closer to a significant gravity well the craft is. Working best within the orbit of a planet or moon the thrusters will work anywhere but lose performance if out in open space. Grav-thruster equipped craft can also utilize the gravity well generated by large enough sources of Void power, such as capital or larger ships powered with Void Reactors.Thermal Imploder: A grenade-like device that when thrown or launched from a thumper generates a wave of energy that spreads out then rapidly recoils, drawing in ambient heat energy from its surroundings and concentrates it within the device before it detonates in a powerful blast wave. Highly destructive with a large radius it could very well hit the one who threw it. Requires oxygen to work rendering it useless underwater or in a vacuum but devastating within enclosed areas like a building or ship interior.Ammo upgrade unlocked: Ruin Rounds: Kinetic rounds now have increased penetrative power against heavy armor.Mining upgrade: Diggers, Entropic Excavators, and Devastators are now equipped with Rods of Ruin sledges increasing their ability to dig through stone and harvest ore.Pheromone Manipulation: By controlling and releasing specific pheromones tailored to the target species you can now influence the living in a variety of ways. While not outright mind-control it does have a significant factor to their decision making process.Unlocked Research:>Trusting Pheromone: Fast>Panic Pheromone: Fast>Hallucination Pheromone: Fast>Depression Pheromone: Fast
>>48541495The immortals are shared we should be able to sense their locationHow ever the masked are involved so oh knows where they areAlso I am nervous about this meeting with the armotocere as the masked are fucking around with us a bit Also following off from last thread I suggest we begin building our cloning facilities on the sun burnt planet underground how ever we also build two biodomes above ground so they can see the stars this will allow us to make 2000 clones per 4 days.We don't make any sunscale clones until the black scales have arrived and we have them supervise the creation of a new species, not black scales not sunscales, but Greyscales, they are neither of the light or the dark but walk with both the necrotic and the solar. Perfect custodians for our cities of the living and the dead Also... More fan art >.>
>>48541600Immortals are sharded*4 cloning facilities*Also... More fan art
>>48541699... I hate posting from my mobile
>>48541600I don't think they are
>>48541600I'm not sure the masked are behind this. Yes they like messing with us but only when the fates of entire civilizations are in the balance
>>48541825>>48541734They were all sharded after we got them out of system 88 after the flat odor in the offing dropped smoke grenades on them Also reread Jor looking at the immortals rustling leaves sounds, familiar I kinda, reread the whole quest this week >.>
>>48541825And with a meeting with the elder trees to secure our alliance
>>48541874Still we need to find them
>>48541549Your home system grows ever crowded. Your own fleet arrayed throughout and in construction with the fleet of captive ships held docked among the already mined sections of the asteroid belt or parked on the moon. Yet it grows even more crowded as the black hulled ships of the Blackscale fleet exit from warp in orbit over Horizon's Drop, their flagship Pestilence a dark stain against the sun behind it.As your blackscale cabal retreats to the refuge of your home system you are deep below Iti'a'Ropku where no living being besides Jor dared tread. Arrayed before you was a line tanks once filled with bubbling necrotic fluid and holding the Immortals but now empty and silent. Waving a hand ten domination spikes lift from the tanks and float toward you and you inspect them as Jor stands nearby silently.Finally you speak out, the human jumping at the sound, "There was no footage of their disappearance?" you ask despite knowing the answer.Nodding Jor points to the clusters of eyes and sensors hidden behind bubbles of opaque glass hidden along the walls, "The memories the Deep Rot just show they were in their tanks but then their shadows grew faint until they disappeared and I was alerted by the Think Tanks. The Spikes were found at the bottom of the tanks. I-I'm sorry, Lord Jadyk," the man says with regret in his voice and looking down, "I should have brought you immediately to them."The spikes float to lay down in a perfect row on a nearby table of surgical tools, "Do not fret, Jor. I doubt there would've been much we could have done," you say as he looks up in surprise, "You said you heard leaves when you first saw them?"He nods, "Uh, yes. I didn't think much of it, I, uh, there are many strange sounds in Iti'a'Ropku," he says with a frown."Worrisome," you say as you feel the wooden mask hidden within your armor shift, "Very worrisome indeed."
>>48541970We should probably subtly hint at Jor about te mask "Jor when I am absent you may be approached by entities, know this they will not lie to you but they will not tell you the whole true, also know that talking openly about them make them very angry... Now I have plans for more cities to it all our citizens where do you suggest we build
>>48541970I fucking knew they didn't have spikes! Full alert! With the blackscales here and the elder trees coming I see too many things that could go very very wrong
>>48542068This,>>48541970Find them nigga
>>48541970Coffins containing the restrained and comatose Sunscale prisoners begin transporting them to the Blackscale while a singular one containing a group of rather unlucky Worker caste travels to the moon of Horizon's Drop where Lorgul, Nekris, and Valresko await to begin their own Weapon Bonding Rituals.There is a brief message from Buddy reporting in on his mission to the Confederate world of Veraga Prime. With the Wick parked in a rental dock they had gone out to the bustling markets of the trade-hub world. It wasn't hard for them to find buyers interested in the standard farmed kelp, eventually getting possible contracts with legitimate food companies that would sell and distribute harvests of kelp as a food supplement. Yet they have had luck contacting a representative of one of the planets local drug-rings after bribing a customs official and letting them sample the narcotikelp. He says they were meeting with them the next day and would report back with the results quickly.Your prison wardens report that there was a large number rallying and demanding to speak to you or the Voidsinger Commander, the crowds whipped up by the Osjiic Roktir and the Confederate Captain Dretst. To their credit they had kept the protesting peaceful beyond the nearly uncontrollable Tyrre who were growing more furious by the day in their confinement and were rallying behind a particularly violent Tyrre that had to be subdued constantly.Your new Necromancer apprentices rested after their night of gluttony but soon they're visited by a Think Tank to begin their lessons in the history and language of the Wormstar. Lessons the stonestars find quite amusing but focus on the written half of the language in their absence of a proper singing voice. There was much to do and tend to. What shall you do first?>Tell Jor about the Masked>Speak with Blackscale about cloning project>Speak with prisoners>Attempt to contact Masked>Diplomacy (Who?)>Create troops>Create shops>Other
>>48542679Tell jor about the masked then take care of the angry prisoners
>>48542679>>Speak with prisoners
>>48542679Warn JorThen prisonersThen black sale
>>48542679"Do you remember when I asked you so long ago about the legend of the Masked?" you ask as you drift down the hall sitting in the air with legs crossed, Jor walking by your side.He glances at you then down as his staff taps the ground as he walks, "I do," he is silent a moment then continues before you could speak, "Do you suspect it was them?"Impressed by his intuition you nod, "That is my guess although I have learned they do not like to be spoken of freely. I suspect you may be visited by them in the future. Know they do not appear to outright lie but you will never gain the full truth. Their offers and deals always have an unseen price."He stops walking to look at you and you turn to face him, "What should I do if they contact me?"You point a talon at his chest, "They seem to be a personal obstacle every being of significance in this universe must face on their own. I cannot influence your interaction with them but know I trust your discretion and loyalty," you say with a dismissive wave of the hand and resume your trip down the dark hallways, light crystals illuminating in the walls as you neared and fading as you passed.Jor catches up to you and is silent for some time before speaking, "Thank you, Lord Jadyk."You look at him curiously, "For?"He gives a small grin, "For trusting in me. With everything."
>>48543215The prisoners of the various different factions you've faced are rallying behind several former officers. The Osjiic Lance-Commander Roktir allying himself with the Vorh Captain Dretst gathering both Osjiic, former Confederate troops and even Ahkam soldiers to their sides. The third was a vicious Tyrre who had slaughtered several of his own kind and broken a troll guard in an attempted escape. He was now riling up the other tyrre and more brutal of the Osjiic and Ahkam soldiers.All three demand to either speak with you, a General, or even calling for the Voidsinger Commander of the Necrolytes but they refuse to divulge their grievances to the Think Tanks that attempted to speak with them.>Speak to them yourself>Bring the Voidsinger Commander>Send a General (Who?)>Send only the Voidsinger Commander>Other
>>48543341>>Speak to them yourself
>>48543341>>Speak to them yourselfThis is a matter we should handle ourselves.
>>48543341>Speak to them yourselfEasier to get people to serve you if they feel that they've got a handle on who they're working for.
>>48543341>Speak to them yourself>Bring the Voidsinger CommanderRecruitment time
>>48543469Oh, changing my vote to add >Bring the Voidsinger CommanderI didn't really understand that option correctly.
>>48543495Seconding All will serve it's merely a matter if finding how best to apply then
Idea for our meeting with the armotocere. We should create more glutton spheres and attune then to necrotic energy and bring them to the meeting along with a cloning men of dirges I he the feeling either wraiths or the immortals will be there to upset the party so it would be good to have a set up that could deal with those outcomesAlso does Jaydk remember how to battle wraiths?
>>48543765Contingent of dirges*
>>48543341The vorh woman looks out a port of the Coffin she and the other two captives were on at the fleet of necrotic ships they passed. Her mandibles clicked worriedly as she turned away, the Osjiic seated across from her nodding, "The fleets getting larger every time I see it," he says in a low voice.Dretst nods then glances warily at the tyree fuming silently further back in the shuttles hold. He was held aloft in the telekinetic grip of a Dirge restraining him and thankfully muzzling him as well after his shouting grew to annoy the Pilot Reconstructed.The Coffin docks with the Charnel Vault and the captives are escorted down dark passages that gave them the more the impression of a mausoleum rather than a starship. Guided by a guard of Shock Trolls they are brought into the large command bridge and brought to stand before you. Pilots line the almost cavernous hall as they tend to holographic screens in their pods on the walls. Your throne perches on an almost delicate looking dais with the Voidsinger Commander standing sternly by its base.Kyn'tk twists in your grasp as you look down at the three silently. Roktir and the tyrre alpha meet your gaze while Dretst glances about the room, mouthing silently to herself.Your Voidsinger Commander breaks the silence, "You strand before the Lich-Lord of the New Necrotic Armada. You will kneel in his presence," he commands gruffly.Dretst, perhaps knowing the futility of resistance, kneels before you and bows her head. Roktir delays a few moments before kneeling as well but keeping his eyes on you. The Tyrre alpha snarls as the Dirges bonds loosen and it stands defiantly. A wave of your hand and he finds himself contorted painfuly against his will to kneel before you with shock on his face."You wished to speak with me? Very well, speak," you command simply.>cont
>>48543840The osjiic and vorh glance at each other and Dretst makes to speak but the Tyrre bellows out before her, "You are worse than Ahkam! Keeping us prisoner and do not allow us to fight! Where is the honor and pleasure in imprisonment? Give us something to fight! Please!" he almost begs and struggles against the Dirges hold.Roktir snorts in disgust and speaks up next, "Tyrre are little more than beasts, they live on conflict and go mad if they can't. It's why the Ahkam use them in their vanguards and why I would never trust one to fight by my side," he looks to the Voidsinger, "We hear that you recruit from your prisoners to be soldiers. Many of my troops have come to me saying they wish to join this band of traitors of yours," he glances back to you, "The Empire considers us dead and if we were somehow freed we'd be considered traitors for allowing ourselves to be imprisoned for so long. We have nothing left."Dretst speaks up finally, "Many of my compatriots feel similar to this Osjiic but there are many others who wish only to be released. They are going mad in your prison, there are much too many down there and fighting is rampant and something must be done," she pleads.How shall you respond to these pleas?
>>48543765>>48543765I have a feeling that the immortals will hijack part of whatever ship we bring and fire on the meeting.If we bring a ship without combat power then we will be in a situation where we will need it.Remember, we are dealing with the masked, nomatter what we plan they have a plan for that
>>48543849Whoever wants to join Legion can while the noncombatants can take residence on Horizon's Drop as workers until they can prove themselves loyalThe tyrre though, I don't know if we should have them be Legionnaires. Maybe make them an arena they can fight out their aggression against each other or reconstructed we can easily repair. Maybe even turn it into sport for the populace and even let Legionnaires join in if they want
>>48543849>>48543849We offer those willing to fight a place in the Neceolyte Legion, and anyone else will be given menial jobs in the armada, like manning those hunting outpost on HD or mining.
>>48543898This essentially>>48543898I like te arena idea maybe make a suicide squad for them where mission with high body counts and they have the honour of being at the front During their down time they get to fight in an arena against reconstructed to keep the crazy at bay but they are at the necrolyte legions discretion to use Those who simply want to be release will be allowed to work ff their debt Explain to then the system we have and once the minor debt it paid they are allowed to do as they please so long as they do not cause trouble
>>48543898Tyrr would be perfect for a weapon testing/arena
>>48543849Could we... Modify the tyrre to take out the fight crazy. I get the feeling that that is something the Akam put in to make them slave soldiers
Also all for testing our latest creations on them in non lethal combat arenas Hell we could televise it to the colonists as a combat arena beta and narcotikelp all round
>>48544061Tyrre biology is naturally like that. Their world is considered a death world to the rest of the galaxy and they evolved an overactive adrenal system. If they don't burn it off regularly, something they would do in their day to day lives hunting and competing with other predators they can become sick and even more emotionally unstable than they are already
>>48544169Would they be partial to our necrokelp?And how would they feel about their battle being televised?
>>48543849Looks like:>Offer recruitment into the Necrolyte Legion for willing soldiers>Send non-combatants to work on Horizon's Drop doing menial labor as their sentence with chance of eventual release into the Armada population>Create an arena for the Tyrre population to fight against Reconstructed and allow the Legion to deploy them as they see fitIs this acceptable?>Y/N?>>48544189They have not been giving the narcotikelp but they would likely be susceptible to it similar to how it eases the Diver Sunscales sadomasochist tendencies
>>48544169And we learned nothing new from them?Mate they are fucking SPACE AUSTRALIANS!We already have better fighters in every way, but what we don't have is better worshippers! Praying arena! Fucking yaA prayer arena made of Kelp!Fucking underwater kelp arena prayer combat! Fuckin ya
>>48544280As long as the arena invols kelp! Like the plant crown thing the Romans had, but in this case it's kelp
>>48544280Y to allGive them necrokelp in their down time and a coliseum to battle in to their hearts content once we are sure the necrokelp can help stop their violent nature and we know they are loyal we let them into the colony on occasions Necrolytes can use then as see fit but only those who prove themselves worthy through co-operative may be sent on missions
>>48544311You actually did learn something!>Berserker Gland: With oversized and redundant adrenal glands units can now enter a berserker state that causes them to move faster and hit harder in melee, able to ignore damage that would cause others to flinch or hesitate. Berserk units will continue to attack until their target is dead or they themselves are destroyed. The intensely physical demands of the Berserker state means a unit can only enter the state once a day and must enter a hibernation to recuperate afterwards. Cost: 3BThese can also be included to exosuits functioning as injectable drugs like the Space Marine Stimpacks from Starcraft
Also can we make a point to the osjiic and fleet commander by letting them know that we have only been out if iur box for a out 2 months and we are already becoming a mahout player
>>48544280Y to all. That last option is especially great. Reconstructed are cheap on a small scale, and fighting against Tyrre repeatedly might help us improve our own troop designs.However, if a Tyrre would rather serve in the Necrolyte Legion they should be free to do so.
>>48544554I want to see Jadyk teasing other people for how long it took them to get there empire going
>>48544554mahout is the best autocorrect of major I've seen.
>>48544280Your talons tap on the armrest of your stone throne as you consider your options, "Did you know I've only been out of my imprisonment for a few months?" you ask to the startled looks of the two former officers then nod to the Voidsinger, "Commander?"The osjiic steps forward, his necrotic armor leaking ripples of void light across his form, "Those that will fight will join my Necrolyte Legion. The Legion will be your new families and the Armada your only loyalty. All former allegiances and feuds between race or faction will be forgotten or dealt with forcefully. We live our new lives to serve until our deaths where we shall continue to serve in undeath. That is the way of the Necrolyte Legion," he says.The Osjiic scowls but nods, "There is no other choice."Dretst clicks her mandibles angrily before answering, "Fine. There really is no other choice is there?""There is always a choice in the Armada," the Voidsinger says, "The choice between life and death. Your life will become much simpler once you come to accept this as your fate."The tyrre alpha snarls and thrashes against the bonds of the Dirge, "What about us!?" he demands loudly."I admire the ferocity of the Tyrre and I would be loathe to see that potential wasted. Very well," you jut a finger at the berserker, "You shall have your combat. A colosseum will be constructed and there you will prove the might of the Tyrre as you face my Reconstructed," you proclaim and you could feel the sudden spike of joy surging through the nearly overwhelming rage that permeated his emotions, "Prove yourselves worthy and loyal to the Wormstar and the Armada and in time you may face my enemies."Laughing their guttural laugh the alpha strains against his bonds in excitement, "Turn us against the Ahkam and we would rip their scales from their bodies for you!" he proclaims and you join his laughing with your own booming voiceWhere shall the Colosseum be built?>Iti'a'Ropku>Moon of Horizon's Drop
>>48544513no worries mang
>>48544755>Iti'a'RopkuThat's that capital, right? If so, there.It can be a public spectacle, not just a secret research facility. Who is going to get the see the glory of the Tyrre in combat if it's hidden away on a moon?The Tyrre love it, at least some people would love to watch, and we get the benefits of testing out our Reconstructed designs.
>>48544755>>Moon of Horizon's DropWelcome to the thundermoon
>>48544755Why have a coliseum where no one can watch it? Build in the the big scull (the big scull is slang for ita'a'ropku because fuck trying to remember how to spell that)
>>48544880I'd be fine with the moon as long as people can spectate. Is there any way for all the people at the capital to watch?
>>48544880>>48544903it would be broadcast and only a coffin ride away to visit in person
>>48544955Oh. Well in that case I change my vote>>48544878Put it on the moon. Make the events more special. I assume we'll have plenty of transport coffins for anyone who wants to attend.
>>48544755>Iti'a'RopkuWhat is a capital city without an arena?Can we have hover jousting with the chariots?
>>48544955Nope, keep it in the city. Call it The Bone Zone
>>48544955In the moon that way it's a special trip and the arena is set to a bak drop of stars We should build it under a biodomeOh and I had an idea for some attack drones can they be equipped with hard light shields? So they can act as living shields as well as being able to link together to make a shield wall of hard light
>>48544955In the city!
>>48545151City it is>>48544772Ambient crystal sponges when?
Might I suggest we organise the gladiators into teams where they have undead team mates so as not to make the games "the dead vs the living" it will also encourage them to work with the undead
>>48544755>>Iti'a'RopkuOur new citizens need entertainment.
>>48545028With Opening Anthem by the Voidknight order
>>48545230Gold team rules
>>48545028I was thinking about that, right now the only entertainment the people have right now is betting on the hoverbike races the netu started. Maybe we could back them and make it an official sport of the city, they could have sanctioned Grand Prix races through the streets of Iti'a'Ropku.
Construction begins on the Colosseum addition to Iti'a'Ropku, construction Reconstructed starting to clear out and flatten a ridge of stone for the basis of it on the edge of the city's border.The Voidsinger motions for the prisoners to be escorted away and they are guided back to their Coffin to bring word back to their compatriots. The osjiic hesitates joining them though and you can almost sense his apprehension even without his domination shard. You look down at him and he meets your gaze and you can see just under the collar of his bone armor his flesh charred and burning with the growing void corruption, "Speak your mind, Commander. This is about the shard yes?"He looks startled at the bluntness and nods, "Yes. The decay from my voidflame progressed enough that it just fell free one day. The corruption burned a trail to it as if to cut it free of me, its host," he says as he kneels before you, "I am still loyal to you, Lich-Lord Jadyk. I give my life to you and the Necrotic Armada, freely and of my own will. I ask only one thing of you.""Speak," you command."Jor told me of the Immortals. Before the time comes that I am consumed and burned to ash by the Void I would ask that you grant me that gift," he rises to his feet with a flicker of voidlight, "I honor the Voidknights and heed the words of the Voidlord Ghul and Revenant Lorgul but I would not be myself. In the Osjiic Empire I was nothing, a nameless weapon who would only be turned into fuel. With the Armada," he pauses and looks down at his hands and the cauldron forged gauntlets he wore then clenches them into fists and looks up to you, "With the Armada I am a Commander. I am my own being, not a number. I have friends here, Jor and my officers. I have a purpose here and I would see that purpose be eternal.">The Voidsinger Commander reaffirms his loyalty to the Armada and you>He also wishes to be made Immortal rather than a Voidknight when his time comesDo you accept?>Y/N?
>>48545570>>YA suitable gift for a loyal soldier.
>>48545570>Y Consider it done. Would you like a name since you lost your old one?
>>48545690ThisY But warn him of the dangers
>>48545189>Ambient Energy Collection: SlowResearch added>>48545419That could be very possible. If people like we could even make that official when the Colosseum is opened.Also last thread I forgot to reply to this but someone reminded me about Reconstructed pets.Any citizen of the Armada is able to request a necrotic companion for themselves. Examples include but not limited to:>Individual devouring worm>Gargoyle (Common or Flat-body)>Domestic Stalker (Smaller and less toothy)
>>48541600>>48541719Hey Smiles, great stuff.I hate to be annoying with requests but could you draw Jor in his necromancer robes and armor?
>>48545570"Your loyalty shall be awarded my friend. There was a reason I picked you to lead those that would fight for me. I've known about your missing shard for some time now but I trusted your loyalty," you bow your head respectfully, "And I shall grant your request. Just know, for those with powers of the Void like yourself, the procedure is dangerous and potentially catastrophic. Are you willing to take that chance rather than join the Voidknights? They could make you a full fledged knight, you've more than earned your name and title."The osjiic shakes his head, "I debated with myself about this choice after Jor told me of the Immortals. It was not a long debate. He told me of the risks and I am willing to face them. There is one other thing the Armada has given me that the Empire could not instill."You tilt your head inquisitively, "What is that, Voidsinger?"He let's out a short laugh, "Faith," he gives a respectful bow, "Lord Jadyk," he says before excusing himself to depart with the captives.
>>48545929Oh man that's cool, and hoverbike races around and in Iti'a'Ropku would be awesome, they could bridge the sections not accessible to them with hardlight highways and dirge lifted bridge segments. Maybe we could even invite some allies to join in at some point.
>>48545970I believe he already did a sketch of him.
>>48545970Sure I will see what I can do
>>48546108That was rather touching
>>48546320Faith, that pulled the gels train
Now I guess it's time to talk with the black scales and get this clone army underways. Though do we have a better name for them than Greyscales?
>>48546108So we will have a first among the living and a first of the Immortals
>>48546522I think they are genetically divided into seperate castes, we might have to stick with either black or sunscales.
>>48546108The insectoid face of your first host looks up at you, the dark wooden mask in your grasp heavy as ever and just as deceptively lifeless. It was a powerful temptation to don the mask and attempt to contact those that gifted you with the trophy but you slip it discreetly away as the doors to the command bridge slide open and the Blackscale Cabal drifts in on the low gravity.They each bow before you, Raakah speaking first, "We humbly give thanks for your hospitality, Lord Jadyk."Beqor grins, his jagged teeth glinting in the light, "Our cousins you turned over to us will be reborn to serve the Wormstar and the Warbloods remade into Knights for your armies."Guir motions to the bridge around them, "I must say we are quite impressed by your fleet, Lich-Lord. Very fitting of your old stories."You bow your head to them, "Welcome to Horizon's Drop, Blackscale. This system can be your home as well as long as those living here under my protection are not harmed. My plans for the Armada's future are those of peace and unification among many beings."The trio of lizard necromancers let out hissing and gurgling laughter but they quickly grow silent as you look down at them in stony silence.Guir coughs nervously and looks down apologetically, "O-of course, Lord Jadyk. We live to serve the heir of the Wormstar.""Do not forget this fact. You live because I find you valuable. Follow my laws and continue to provide your worth and you shall have nothing to fear of me and you shall have your place in my Armada," you say and all three bow, "Now, I have need of your knowledge and assistance in a project of mine.""Yes, Lord Jadyk. What is our task?" Raakah asks almost eagerlyHow do you wish to start off the cloning project? Also now is the time for asking the Blackscale questions>(Write in)
>>48546583Or race mix all the casts to get greay
>>48546642How do the castes affect the nature of individual scales? Do you commune with your gods based on genetic predisposition, and if so would a cloned sunscale ever be made to follow a being like me on it's own volition?
The sunscales are fearsome adversaries design in no small part to deal with the necrotic. I wish to harness this power I am building a grand cloning facility to create a living army designed bred and trained to help defend us against those beings and creations specifically created to counter the power necrotic.How ever I fear their loyalty and dedication to their gods may be more a genetic design than any mere indoctrination, yes? I want your assistance in creating a new species not sunscale not black scale but something that is... Both and neither a living vanguard if you will what are your suggestions and opinions speak freely as I would know opinions on the subject Also mentional the immortals procedure to them in case they are, interested in shedding their diseased bodies Might I suggest we incorporate the rods if ruin into all disciple weaponry eg mix it with the reaver staffs and void hammers
We could call them wormscales?
>>48546642Start off with tissue and workers. ASk them why the sunscales seem so resilient and genetically prone to fight undead. Ask if cloning tissue and grafts/replacements would ease their discomfort.
>>48546721>Void Hammer+Rod of RuinOh my.
>>48546642"Is the Sunscales devotion to the Mother and Father gods based on a genetic predisposition, and if so would a cloned Sunscale ever be educated into worshiping the Wormstar?" you ask, the question gnawing at you ever since you first met the Dagger rescued Worker.The trio glance at each other and Guir shrugs, "We can not speak for the other cabals but we have not attempted cloning ourselves."Raakah nods, her dewlap shaking, "Though that is quite an interesting idea. I say we give it a try."Beqor speaks next, "Agreed but why would you want to clone Sunscale?""I believe they can be a formidable force to add to my Armada. Do you not want to spit in the eye of the gods that hunt your mercilessly?" you goad"Ha! Very well! We shall help with this," Guir proclaims, "Might I suggest starting off with the Worker caste first? They would be the safest to begin the experiment with.""Good. Construction will commence of a facility to house our little experiment safely," you say, glad they were so eager to help.>Blackscale are more than eager to begin work on the project>Sunscale Cloning project: SlowRoll me 3d100 best of first three please
Rolled 67, 9, 85 = 161 (3d100)>>48547097
Rolled 55, 47, 37 = 139 (3d100)>>48547097
Rolled 29, 67, 81 = 177 (3d100)>>48547097
>>48547097Hang on, they never addressed our question. We still need to know if the scales have a genetic predisposition to following specific gods, and if they can contact those gods, or each other, from anywhere. We're taking a massive risk here.
>>48547097as... inspiration, mention immortality is on the table if they can make this project work>>48545970>>48546225Mores the Merrier, just threw this together for you
>>48547181well... we didnt roll a one so it should be, ok. Oh and since thats the blackscales taken care of, should we arrange a search of the ruins below Station 88? or is there another issue we had yet to addessAlso we should arrange to build more minning factories and biomass farms, gotta keep up that Exponential growth essential for growing skeletons
>>48547181They do not know the answer to that themselves. They are whisked away from their clutches upon hatching and do not get to know their Sunscale kin and are raised by other Blackscale. They are unsure if it is genetic or because of their strict religious upbringing.Sorry I should've made that more clear.>>48547222Looking great, Smiles>>48547278>arrange a search of the ruins below Station 88Oh damn thanks for reminding me.Roll me 2d100 best of first three for commencing a search for the ruins
>>48547278There is never not a good time for exponential growth. Speaking of which, I may have brought this up a couple threads ago but what if we designed a space based biomass factory that we could use to supplement the income from the Kelp and kelpcow factories. We could link a crapload of solar collecting stations and wire them up to a dedicated solar powerstation. Something like that would be extremely effective at generating absurd quantities of biomass while still easy to construct anywhere.
Rolled 17, 74 = 91 (2d100)>>48547320
>>48547320Glad you enjoy them, as iv said before your writting material gets my draw on. Also as i mentioned earlier i kind of, reread the whole quest over the last 2-3 days so iv got a mental check list of all the little tid bits youv dropped hints at that the player base has fogottenKind of like the oceans on Horizons drop, there are large sea animals with big bite marks and we forgot all about it other then studying the corpse that washed up. Also a quick question regarding something you mentioned in the last thread, of the necromancer trainees you mentioned the Kesh who had been one of the original miner we captured, isn't that the same one we, kinda, dropped in the cauldron to get the cyclops upgrade?
Rolled 100, 90 = 190 (2d100)>>48547320
Rolled 90, 97 = 187 (2d100)>>48547320rolling>>48547350dam sun
Rolled 10, 65 = 75 (2d100)>>48547320>>48547340sounds like an idea, have you looked at the ship builder folders to work out your design?
>>48547350>>48547362well damn"I hear there are ruins here"You mean those ruins? [points at mosuleum]"Yeah those ones, is there a door?uuuh yes.. and its open. sir?"Good good all according to plan..."
>>48547370I was thinking of it as a sort of stationary structure that could be built into space cities and asteroids, but that might work. It would have to be pretty massive to make sense though, maybe even on the scale of a flagship.
>>48547411well not necessarily, it could be a fleet of smaller ships, that way the loss of any one ship is not a major loss, also they would be faster to build.
>>48547347>necromancer trainees you mentioned the Kesh who had been one of the original miner we captured, isn't that the same one we, kinda, dropped in the cauldron to get the cyclops upgrade?Uh.... from one of the later groups>>48547362>>48547350Dang dudes. I think you found em.>>48547278I'm a horrible slacker and I have yet to adjust pricing on ships or work on the resource generation. I'm going to have to make use of my extra free time while unemployed to fix that so ships and construction isn't so cheap and we aren't just spamming mining fleets and biomass farms.>>48547340Once space cities is researched this could be quite possible to make. I'll make sure to stat up biomass generating options. There will also be mining options where they would give a bonus to asteroid mining operations.But sadly I think I must call it here for the night. Thread is archived please vote for it if you can.I hope folks had fun playing, I definitely had fun running it. Also don't forget I check the Ask.fm nearly daily so don't be afraid to send me questions about lore or background. I've got all these histories and backgrounds for the different races and factions.I'll be up for a while longer to answer questions and there may be a chance tomorrow of a short continuation to show the results of the search for the ruins
>>48547518Thanks for running Grave. Speaking of changing prices, since you've jacked a lot of the system from QD, are you thinking of incorporating his new resource system?
>>48547518Thanks for running Jyoti, quick question, could we keep the blackscale cloning project in a different system from Horzon's Drop. We have not succeeded in completely removing the risk that they could contact their other Solar cousins and bring them to our home, so could we set up the cloning facility on that planet the blackscale first taught the Confederacy about Necrotic energies, or somewhere equally removed from the heart of our Empire?
>>48547541>HQQ resource systemPlease no, that works for a massive super stellar empire but not if you want to keep track of individual projects. What we've got now suits the quest pretty well.
>>48547541Yeah pretty much. He bounced ideas for his system off me when we were both on hiatus and like I said, I'm just such a slacker I just need to figure out how to incorporate biomass farms and such into the system.>>48547564There is the system that the Necrolytes discovered with the old Confederate research base on the ice planet. The Necrolytes have a small base there but the system is mostly deserted and could be used to house it.
>>48547612Be a fairly fitting spot to raise an army of sunscales. We could just build a new facility if we wanted to avoid the awkward questions about where the bulletholes came from.
>>48547643Yeah it would likely be built new under a glacier
>>48547612Can we have one of the Blackscale help tutor our apprentice necromancers?
>>48547689their skill in the wormsong is... poor, its more trial and error that they learnt the craft, full of spelling errors>>48547518>Uh.... from one of the later groupshahaha I read it the first time and i was like "He lives?!"Btw, does Jaydk remember anything about the wraiths and if they are susceptible to various elements?
>>48547612might i suggest working out resource generation as say, x potential per system, some systems giving a larger % of x material but unable to go beyond certain numbers. ore applicable for minning really
>>48547612Can rods of ruin be combined with the reaver staffs, sentient blades and void hammers?
Anyone have suggestions for ships to build and infrastructure or are we holding off til grave sorts out the prices? Also can we get Lorgul and Eiton making Sacrificial weapons I think we want Nekris with us while searching the ruins maybe Agona as well Also city wise can we make a games facility we mentioned a few treads back where the populace can choose a race of star ships to use to battle one another in computer simulations for entertainment and tactical training purposes
Woah Woah Woah. I just had a crazy idea. What if we use giant rods of ruin for our railguns? I can imagine the shattered ships, it's beautiful.
>>48548603Ruininous Ammunition... that is, actually a really good idea, especially for the capital ship sized weapons [pic related]Also we should do another scan of the populace/prisoners for potential arc/void/necrotic/Magma
>>48548875Yeah, I had the idea because it was already set up for the small arms, but if we made some big enough, they could be planet crackers :D
DUDE ZOMBIES LMAOLE BRAINS LE BRAINS I NEVER SAW A ZOMBIE MOVIE IN MY LIFE BUT GONNA JUMP TE BANDWAGON XDD
Hey guise I love zombies they are epic! I saw Walking Dead (where zombies originate from) and played a lot of Minecraft. How do I play this game with you?
>>48548970le brains? so... french zombies? Mind you I don't know if having zombies that surrender is the best idea for the ArmadaActually, i wonder if we could make a unit similar to the Chrysallids from Xcom, only with more devouring swarms. >>48549001Well the QM who runs the game is probably asleep atm, but generally you have the QM [DM, game runner what ever you want to call it] will write out whats happening and we then make decisions and choices as to what we want to do. Certain actions allow us new units or research, but we can also mix and match exisiting technology into new units/items if the majority agree with the idea. Also we dont really use zombies all that much, we take the dead, break them down in cauldrons and then, Rebuild them into new reconstructed. We can Make zombies if we are desperate and we used them to good effect when getting different groups to start attacking one another. Heres the story from begining to the present if you want to read it to get an idea of how the game plays out. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Death+among+the+starsPase bins in the second main post have details on how to make units/ etc.
>>48548875By the wormstar, that's brilliant.
And just because the humble troll needs picture because other then talon those guys are some of our best rank and file meatshields and general Mook material
last one... for now >.> Also just had a horrible vision of our meeting with the Amortocere where as we meet with the majority of their Eldertree's and we being discussing the alliance, a swarm of wraiths descend to feed upon their leaders. Having said that, Jaydk Ghostbusters Edition sounds like it could be a laugh.
