With the last remaining pockets of resistance cleared out on the surface of the desolate world anchoring Station 88 your Reconstructed turn to scouring the world for these supposed ruins that drew the Confederates in the first place. Nails and Coffins fly search patterns alongside the serpentine Drakes searching through canyons and mountains. It did not take long for a high flying Drake to spot something odd with the placement of rubble at the base of a steep cliff-face.Folding its wings against its body it plummets like a shot through the air before unfurling them with a snap of air to descend slowly to the ground. Up close it was easy to see the area had been recently occupied with vehicle tracks and debris from excavations. The cliff-face showed signs or recent collapse and a closer look revealed it had been detonated to cause it to fall, explaining the heavy pile of rubble.By that point a Coffin appeared with a team of Reconstructed and as it lands the Drake gives a mighty flap of its wings to return to the air. Trolls and a lumbering Brute emerge and begin hauling away the rubble and before long they reveal the edges of a large opening. As they cleared more under the morning sun they spot carvings in the stone not destroyed and soon your suspicions were confirmed as the Brute hauls away a slab of stone that revealed carvings in the stone wall.Dominated by a depiction of a swirling star, while faded and worn, it was a bittersweet sight. The symbol of the Wormstar with the sigil of Ruscuv one of your lesser sisters in lichdom, a grasping claw of a hand reaching for the star, carved below it. As your Reconstructed continued to haul away the rubble they are quickly reinforced by more troops and a small base being constructed from materials brought by Coffin.You could only guess what awaited you below in this vault as Gargoyles moved to search the darkness.

>>48661744Unlocked:Pheromone Manipulation: Specially modified pheromones and thorough study on a variety of sentient beings now allows the use of these pheromones to subtly influence a living beings emotional state. These give a bonus to interrogation, intimidation, and other interactions with living beings but the effects are not powerful enough to completely control the actions of another.Arc Weaponry:Arc-Bolter: A medium weapon with two modes of fire, the first launching metal arc-charged bolts that attract the secondary fire, a constant beam of Arc energy. Hitting the target with the bolt, then switching to the Arc beam it can then arc and twist over cover or around corners following the bolt. Up to three targets can be hit with a bolt and the beam will split but each beam will cause less damage. Critical hits have a chance for the beam to arc to a new target from the targeting bolt. Requires pairing with an Arc Condenser.Storm Grenades: Similar in function to an arc condenser, but simplified and miniaturized, these cluster grenades are launched from a Thumper and will generate an area of effect dealing continuous Arc and electrical damage for a limited time. Fires three small grenades at a time but multiple volleys will stack and prolong the effect.New Vehicle:Battle Tomb: A large and heavy land tank that hovers across the terrain in support of ground troops and other vehicles, escorting troop carriers and providing heavy covering fire. Sporting heavier armor than the Large Reconstructed the Battle Tomb can be used as mobile cover for other troops or a battering ram to break through fortifications. All Battle Tombs come with a single Needle Missile pod and can either be equipped with heavy weaponry like that of the Large Reconstructed or mount Pin Missile pods. Cost: 120B 180M

>>48661991All good mate.
>>48661779On the moon of Horizon's Drop profane rituals were underway, the screams of Sunscale Workers ringing out through dark tunnels. Predator Nekris and Revenant Lorgul seal themselves away in their respective temples, Dominator Valresko alone in a deep pit he'd had constructed for his own eventual stronghold. Even from the Charnel Vault you could sense the powerful emanations of Void, Solar, and Arc, your Generals constructing for themselves weapons and tools of staggering might.Across the sector you watch as Buddy meets with their new contact in one of the lower levels of the mega-city covering a portion of Veraga Primes largest continent. The Demi-Think Tank floats up to a window in a back alley to peer through discreetly as Buddy and his partners Eigha and Clud sit in a large cloud filled room across from a pair of well-dressed human and kosda. Dried narcotikelp burns in the basket of a hookah sitting on the table between them, the kosda drawing in deep lungfuls of the potent smoke before letting out a thick cloud of pale smoke. Their talks of bribes and smuggling routes and cuts bored you and you leave them to make their plans and plots. You only cared that the Narcotikelp spread throughout the Confederacy and Buddy promised these low-lives were the way to do so.Roktir and Dretst returned to the prisoners and spoke to them during the night and now those that would fight for the Necrolyte Legion were brought to the grand plaza of Iti'a'Ropku. There the Voidsinger Commander stood with Jor and the pair of your most trusted living agents welcomed the new recruits and explained their purpose to the Armada. Those that elected not to join the Legion were there as well and as the new Legionnaires departed to be assessed and assigned by the officers of the Legion Jor stepped forward to speak to the rest of them, explaining that while they no longer had to live in cramped prisons they were still under the Armada's control.>cont
>>48662261The Lavafathers Moon, now called Bastion by the imprisoned entity himself, progresses steadily in its industrialization. Inspired by the Armada and seeming to want to live up to your faith entrusted to them, the Obsidianborn and the Stonestar continue to build ever larger structures but to your curiosity you watch through a Cyclops as a building sized spire of stone, carved with specially grown veins of polished crystal, rumbles then lifts itself from the ground for several minutes before lowering itself once more. The spire was quickly broken down and a large core of crystal brought back down into the miles and miles of tunnels that permeated the crust of the moon.On Rukor the repairs from the Ahkam attacks were well under way by Ahkam prisoners and Reconstructed when the ships carrying the Ambassadors return them to their home. The ructu send out word to summon the leaders of the various villages and towns that made up the ructu civilization, loaned Coffins ferrying them quickly to the metropolis city. Terrordrome halves sit outside the city ready to leap to its defenses at a moments notice as the leadership of the ructu seal themselves inside their large audience hall to discuss the Armada and the offer of friendship.There is much to do and tend to, what shall you do first?
>>48662280Have Jadyk travel to meet the Armatocere delegation on that world where Jor first met them. Let's get the details of our new alliance hashed out now, they may be able to offer some additional advice on cloning for our sunscale project.
>>48662421The Eldertrees haven't arrived yet and they're doing a bit of temporary terraforming to allow them to meet you in person. I'll make sure to point out when they arrive
There was some debate on where the Sunscale cloning facility would be kept. Please choose now>Horizon's Drop moon>Scorched research world>Bastion>Necrolyte controlled frozen worldCloning the first Sunscale Workers will begin once the facility is constructed. The facility will contain a full barracks of Reconstructed
>>48662471>temporary terraformingThat is an awful lot of effort to put into a single diplomatic meeting. Nice to see they're taking it seriously at least. >>48662280Contact the lavafather and ask him how the work with the crystal is going and how he plans on using it. While we're there, ask him what power he served under in the Undying Court, we've never actually figured that out and I'm curious.
>>48662631I'm stuck between necrolyte and the sunburnt But as we wouldn't want the sunscale Fibding our spiral but at the same time I don't want the wraiths watching our project and they hang out in that sector >>48662280Straight up do to population increase and for general convenience I suggest we double the amount of think tanks an demo think tanks I also suggest we allow the to wok along side the legion to help decrease their fatality rates I also had an idea for a combat collar that is built into combat armour that contains a Nid and life drain device for our legionnaires in the hopes of being able to clone them. Also to assist in this regards I suggest each has a dream stone to better collect and store their memories
>>48662471>>Necrolyte controlled frozen worldWe can't afford to keep it in the systems inhabited by our living subjects or any significant infrastructure, so the frozen world it is. I'd also like to recommend keeping a void-nova warhead on site, just in case the sunscale raid the joint and we have to cover our tracks.
>>48662280>Lavafather>And frozen workd
>>48662631>Necrolyte controlled frozen worldand yeah keep a Void-Nova or two underneath it all just in case.Then>Speak to Lavafather
>>48662631>Necrolyte controlled frozen world
>>48662892Seconding A really quick question what would happen if we transferred living essence I to a wounded subject Like with Jor we healed him using the necrotic could we set up a stim pack like thing for our troops to keep me alive long enough to be out into stasis or is that what the adrenaline one is for?
>>48662280>>48662631On a distant side of the same frozen world the Necrolyte Legion maintained a small outpost in the hollowed out shell of the Confederate research lab Reconstructed bore deep into a thick glacier of toxic ice. Entropic Excavators drill, burn and pummel their way through the hard-packed ice as they hollow out a large cavern under several hundred tons of glacier. Manglers and Dirges begin raising walls and pillars while smaller Reconstructed connect them all together forming rooms and passages.Drifting in between planets your Eyegore continues to keep watch for any Wraith presence. Ever since your meeting with Akka-Tor they had been suspiciously absent when before the Eyegore could catch distant glimpses of the ragged ghosts drifting in the cosmic winds.>Sunscale Cloning facility placed on the frozen world>Speak to the LavafatherWithin Agona's fortress on the rain-slicked plateau of Bastion you send a Think Tank to the hovering chunk of obsidian glass that drifted idly in the courtyard and establish a connection to the Lavafather. The ground rumbles faintly and you feel his attention turn toward you."Lord Jadyk, it is good to hear from you. Is everything alright with the Armada? My forces grow by the day and my subjects are ready to leap to battle once more. The first taste of equal battle against the Ahkam has only whet their appetite," you can sense a feeling of contentment through the connection.What shall you speak to him about?
>>48663287Ask him what he's planning on doing with that massive piece of crystalline engineering we saw him working on earlier, it was quite an impressive sight. Then ask him if he could reforge muic like he did her sister, and also ask him which power in the old undying court he served.
>>48663383These sound like solid questions
>>48663287"I must again thank you for helping enhancing Agona. She is going to be a terror for the enemies of the Armada. Her sister Muic is eager to be reforged as well, if you would be so kind and indulge her," you send through the connection."It would be my pleasure. Punisher Muic will be given the same gifts of power and might as her sister and further unify us," he replies and you send a short message to Muic granting your blessing for her reforging and she sends her gratitude."I happened to witness that piece of crystalline engineering, quite an impressive sight. May I ask what it was you were working on?," As you wait you look through an array of alerts the Think Tanks funnel your way occasionally. Osogo throughout Horizon's Drop were being met by the alpha sisters of Red-Leaf-Strains and many have begun their own pilgrimage to Iti'a'Ropku guided by a Gargoyle.Shortly the Lavafather responds, "Experimentation in the limits of the crystal telekinesis and attempts to enhance it. In the future, perhaps telekinetic propulsion will replace our current thrusters and propulsion. It is a far off goal but I am hopeful. I cannot thank you enough for granting us the gift of that technology. It has already greatly increased my industrial capabilities and my Obsidianborn thinkers are hard at work on new ways to utilize it.""You will share these developments with the Armada, correct?" you inquire"Of course," the answer came quick"I know this might appear a random question but I was curious, which faction of the Undying Court did you serve?" you had never had reason to question his previous loyalties but the discovery of the ruins bearing Ruscuvs sigil had you curious.The delay in his answer stretches surprisingly long before his answer comes, "I was a vassal Ulsut and a member of the Plaguedrinkers."You brush away the other notifications and focus fully on the Lavafather, "I had met Ulsut. They were only a Plaguedrinker, not their patron. You are lying."
>>48664201Shit just got real
>>48664201The ground of Bastion rumbles as the Lavafathers prison quakes briefly then settles before his next words, "Why would I lie to you, Lord Jadyk?""That is what I'm curious of myself. Ulsut was merely the chosen champion of the Plaguedrinkers patron. Reveal who you really are and served before your imprisonment. You clearly knew of the Armada and some of its members," you accuse and across your forces fleets and your troops on Bastion tense warily.Roll me 1d100 best of first 3 please
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>48664290
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>48664290
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>48664357>>48664290I put in a capital D for dice >.<
>>48664290I figured the Lavafather was being dishonest to get in good with us. Not that I care much, the New Necrotic Armada is a far cry in it's organization from the Undying Court and has alliances that most of the old undead to shake their heads at. As long as the lavafather is loyal to us that is all that matters.
Put it like this "I don't care who you served but I may have found ruins if another former member that is improsoned and I would like know I am not releasing a former foe of yours
>>48664514Oh dude, that's possibly our sister in those ruins, we're busting them open and releasing that ancient evil no matter what the talking volcano tells us.
>>48664290You are almost ready to repeat your demands, not wishing to completely throw away a valuable ally like the Lavafather when he finally responds."I was never a part of the Grand Necrotic Armada. Yes I knew of the Armada only because I fought against it," there is a moment of silence as your forces relax but still keep an eye on the fleets of the Lavafather though they continue as if nothing was wrong, "I was originally a member of what the other races called Wasps. We were created as a slave race eons ago but the Crystalline Minds reached out to us and freed us. For a time, it was good. We coexisted and achieved many great feats but then the Armada descended on the Galaxy. The Crystalline Minds ignored the plights of the other races but my kin pleaded with them to intervene. Our might could, and did, turn the tide of death and destruction."He trailed off as if grouping up his memories, "I was among those that fought and exterminated the Plaguedrinkers and many others. I was united with my partner, an Obsidian Crystal forged for war, and we brought ruin to the undead. But then, we betrayed our brethren. We slew another Wasp warrior and shattered its Crystal companion. They punished us, trapping my mind within the Obsidian and plunging me into this prison. It took me untold years to learn how to control the forces of heat and pressure around me, to create new Obsidianborn and discovering the primitive stonestar."The great volcano rumbles and fresh magma burst forth in glowing rivers, "I hate my former kin and the Crystalline Minds. They destroyed my partners mind and trapped me in their husk then sealed me away for an eternity in a literal hell. I do not know where they are or if they still exist in this galaxy but I am prepared for my revenge. We are kindred minds, broken and imprisoned by them and I would gladly have you by my side to seek our vengeance."He falls silent then, as if waiting your judgement.What shall you say or do in response?
>>48664760forgive, but (silently) do not forget
>>48664760Well then. Ask him what prompted him to betray his kin in the first place.
>>48664760I understand why you lied to me, but I sincerely ask you not do that again. You side of the war was not the only side that had known betrayal. Indeed I was imprisoned and my master slain because of it. That said, I take to lairs poorly. Be straight with me and I will straight with you. As for revenge, You may have it time, you may not. I have seen only echoes and ruins of them so far. I would advise that you spite your enemies by living well and building something truly grand. Turn their punishment into boon instead of a bane.
They where right to stop me you know. Our original quest would lead only to ebtropy and stagnation I realise that now. I hold no grudge against you for what is in the past but I thank you for your honesty
>>48664982I like this
>>48664937This is a good one, supporting.>>48664982And I do not like this. This makes Jadyk seem like he thinks getting imprisoned and having everything had striven for up to that point destroyed was a good thing for him. Also makes him seem like he's apologizing for his actions when he lead the old Necrotic Armada. Way out of character, in a word.
>>48665151We lost an army but we did gain something more important a revelation But yeah being improsoned was not a happy thing but the lessons learned from it where Should we ask why he murdwred one of his fellows?
>>48664760"What urged you to betray your kin?" you ask simply and you can almost sense his surprise at your seeming lack of anger."A rivalry, once friendly and harmless driven to bitterness and jealousy. A duel ending fatally when I foolishly gave into my rage and hate. An Obsidian Mind was not like the others grown pure outside of time, instead forged in heat and passion to go to war and they fueled our passions," he replies solemnly, "In our combined fury we slew my brother and shattered his Quartz. It is still my great shame.""I understand why you lied to me, but I sincerely ask that remain truthful from here on. Your side of the war was not the only one that had known betrayal. I myself was betrayed and imprisoned and my master slain. That said, I take to liars poorly. You pledged yourself to me and my cause and I have nothing but honesty from my vassals, is that understood?"The ground rumbles softly, the Reconstructed on Bastions surface starting to grow annoyed with the seismic activity, "I understand, Lord Jadyk.""As for your revenge, I am afraid that lust may go unsated. I have nothing but echoes and ruins of the Wasps and Crystalline Minds. The secrets of their telekinetic power unearthed in ruins long abandoned," His bitterness was clear through the link but you continue, "Let your success be your revenge. They sealed you in your old partners corpse and trapped you in a prison of heat, never expecting you to be free. But here you are greater than you ever were before, your mind reaching out across this moon and uplifting a race from savage tribal wars to walking among the stars. Let your success and the Stonestar be your vengeance for now. The New Necrotic Armada still has a place for the Lavafather and his children of obsidian and fury."There is a long silence before a the Lavafather finally replies, "Thank you, Lord Jadyk. I am still devoted to your cause and my empire gladly dedicates itself to the New Necrotic Armada."
>>48665343Were there any other questions you had for the Lavafather before moving onto other matters?
>>48665454We should ask him to perhaps create a data base of useful information that would come in handy should we encounter the crystalline minds weaknesses strength tactics any information is helpfulThen we should focus on the ruins I feel we should make a nice family reunion
>>48665454Also we should mention that planet we encountered while going to meet akkator the one with the crystal spires reaching out to a ball of water between two planets
>>48665324See, I don't think Jadyk has had a terribly significant change of heart since emerging from his imprisonment. Sure, he's radically changed how he deals with the living, but I like to think this wasn't the result of a revelation so much as it was a revision of the same principles that drove him before his fall. His reasons for his newfound benevolence are not simply signs of a sudden change of heart in the lich but a necessary means to achieving exactly what he has always sought; to dominate the galaxy and bring glory to the name of Wormstar. Jadyk has just come to realize that having a body of living and loyal subjects is necessary to establishing that.
>>48665505YES! I have forgotten about that. Let's go check it out
>>48665623How about no? She is probably still there.and if she is it is certainly a trap.
>>48665454"Good," Muic boards the cruiser she'd taken as her own and departs for Bastion and her reforging, "Any information on the tactics and abilities of your former comrades would be quite useful should we encounter them in the future.""I did not know much about the technology of the Crystalline Minds, much of it indistinguishable from themselves. I will however share knowledge of their tactics and weaponry they used though their technology has likely progressed even further since my imprisonment," he says and for the briefest of moments you see a memory.He flew through the void of space, armored in razor-sharp greenish-black glass, dodging blasts of necrotic energy and streams of kinetic rounds as a fleet of Armada ships open fire on him and the handful of Crystal armored Wasps flying by his side. Fightercraft raced at them unleashing their own weapons but the way he and his comrades sailed and danced around them made the fighters look sluggish and primitive as they were sliced through with nanomolecular edged blades or blasts of focused light.A frigate rapidly neared and he thrust his hands forward, his armor growing and shaping itself before his eyes turning them both into a spear of glass. The shield shattered and hardly slowed them before they punch through the thick hulls of metal and bone. His aim true as ever he and his Obsidian pierced the necrotic reactor of the ship as he passed clean through the ship. It detonated moments later but he was already moving on, aiming himself for another ship as his heart soared with exhilaration.You are unsure if he was aware of the slip but you say nothing of it, recognizing the ships of one of your old allies the Dread Wights.
>>48665728We can show him imagery of it It's not like Jaydk is going to drag te moon to the system and be like "check this shit out"Also shall we share the hard light research with the lava father
I think we should build a couple cloning facilities on the burnt out planet but produce normal clones as a steady boost to the necrolyte legions
Speaking of which we need to build them a proper fleet of ships
>>48666003Instead you send an image of the strange binary worlds you had seen in the system neighboring the one Akka-Tor had been harvesting. He replies before you could send your own message, "I am amazed that still exists. It was an experimental habitat for races of aquatic beings, sort of a refugee camp until they could be relocated. Those structures projected a gravity well, enhancing the natural lagrange point. Is it still populated?""Not that we could detect but we did not trust to stay long. It is unlikely much living remains, a neighboring system held the forces of Sun-Eater Akka-Tor," the ground shakes angrily at the name and boulders bounce down the side of Agona's fortified plateau."A pity," he says simply.You bid him farewell and turn your mind to other tasks while still mulling over his revealed origins.A number of things have arisen requiring or requesting your attention.>Speak to Buddy about the meeting>The Blackscale wish to speak briefly>Voidknight Jareth wishes to speak about the Deathshead captives>The visiting Stonestar say they are ready to return to Bastion after their lessons in technology and warfareWhat shall you tend to first?
>>48666223>>The Blackscale wish to speak briefly
>>48666223First the niggerscails then the stone stars
>>48666223>The Blackscale wish to speak briefly
>>48666223The Demi-Think Tank you'd assigned to the Blackscale projects your image in their ship the Pestilence and you see them seated on their dais, speaking about their plans for the cloning facility to fuel their creation of Knights but they halt as they notice you. Bowing their heads in greeting Guir speaks first, "Thank you for replying so soon, Lord Jadyk. We realized we should share this plan with you before enacting it."You nod and motion for them to continue and Raakah speaks next, "You know the Flyer Sunscale caste?""Yes. Seem to be harmless and childlike. Hardly useful for combat. Why?" you had ignored the hyperactive creatures, focusing instead on the abilities of the others.Beqor's third eye stares off in the distance, "They are indeed children. Their minds are pure and innocent. Violence terrifies them and they cannot stand to be caged," he glances at the others for a moment then continues guardedly, "This Cabal has decided to release them instead of converting them to undeath."Raakah speaks before you could question them, "We have already chosen a suitable world. A garden world, lush with game and lacking any true intelligent species. It is highly doubtful our orthodox cousins will find them. They will be happy there and unable to interfere with our plans. They have no knowledge of this systems location and are not a threat."Guir nods, "Will you allow this, Lich-Lord?"The Blackscale wish to release the Flyer Sunscale captives who they claim are harmless. How shall you respond to this wish?>Write-in
>>48666589It will be allowed, however if I find you misled me, or that you underestimated them it will be on your head. What brought this on may I ask?
>>48666589"This is an unusually merciful gesture of you, why?"
>>48666589No, spike them and let them live in our capital.
>>48666615Sounds good to me
>>48666589Ask them where this world is and if it is nearby, in the unlikely event that you need to defend it from hostile forces.
>>48666589What exactly are they used for by the sunscale then?And why such a benevolent act I would have thought you would use then for raw materials But if they are harmless then I don't see by not would they not be happy in iur Capitol?
>>48666589You almost wish for a face to show your surprise, "This a rather uncharacteristic act of kindness for you all. What brought this on?" your image folding your arms across your chest.They glance at each other for a moment then Beqor sighs heavily, "It may be hard to believe but we would feel too..." he struggles to search for the word."Guilty?" you offer while truly disbelieving."Yes, guilty," Guir says, "The Flyers are innocent. They wage no war, they are rarely strong enough of faith to beckon the Father but the Mother dotes on them. They would be a liability if they were to live in Iti'a'Ropku even though your world and city would be suitable for them."Raakah flexes her oversized fist compulsively, "We decided as a Cabal never to take the life of a Flyer or reanimate one. There is nothing more depressing and pitiful than an undead Flyer."You point a finger at them, "I understand now. You Blackscale are not all bile and hatred for your uncorrupted kin. You actually care for the Flyers," the way they recoiled or looked away at the accusation only served to confirm you accusation but you wave the matter off, "Very well. You may release them on this world. Make sure they know nothing of where they have been. We cannot afford a Sunscale fleet arriving at our doorstep."The Blackscale compose themselves and bow before you, "Very well Lord Jadyk. We thank you for your understanding," Raakah says before the connection is severed.Keep an Eyegore in the system they are released?>Y/N?
>>48666810YSpeak with jareth
>>48666810>Y May as well stand watch. I guess ever faction draws the line somewhere, the blackscale's is murdering and reanimating children
>>48666810Who shall you speak to next?>Speak to Buddy about the meeting>Voidknight Jareth wishes to speak about the Deathshead captives>The visiting Stonestar say they are ready to return to Bastion after their lessons in technology and warfare
>>48666964>Speak to Buddy about the meeting
>>48666964Jareth then buddy
>>48666810>yAnd a dream stone obelisk
>>48666964Why can't we just send the stonestar back as we are talking to someone? Unless our presence is needed it seems like a pretty autonomous task.
>>48666964>>Speak to Buddy about the meetingGotta hear about how the kelp pitch went.
>>48667020I can support this send them an autonomous thanks and let them return was there like a head stone star that wanted our attention to thank us or something?Btw can we search the confederate citizens we have from the other planet to search for potential energy users Also would I be right In assuming the ruins need clearing before we can go in and open the newest can of fun?
>>48667020Considering the recent revelations about the Lavafather, I'd prefer we meet these guys just to see how they feel about us at this point.
>>48666964As you sat in the Charnel Vault you bring up a screen showing Jor speaking to the Stonestar as they prepared to depart for Bastion. A Demi-Think Tank floats forward and projects another image of yourself and they turn to face the holographic image. Jor bows low and the Stonestar dips one side of is body toward you, its eyes peering up at you from the gaps in its chitin suit."I hope your time here among the Armada was an enlightening experience. May you bring honor to the Lavafather and your people," you say to the researcher.The stonestar seemed intimidated by you but it bobs itself in their version of a nod, "Very enjoyable as well. We have learned much and we will work hard to bring glory to the Armada. Our traitor-kin may find yet find redemption under this city," they say in their clacking code of a language. You were surprised they spoke almost fondly of the traitor stonestar that your Armada had "adopted" after their exile."We can only hope. They already join my Legion and bring honor to themselves in combat. Bring word to your people that anyone may visit Iti'a'Ropku should they wish. Our home is open to all friends of the Armada," you say as your hologram waves broadly at the city behind you.The head researcher gives thanks again before departing with Jor to finish up the remaining tasks of gathering the stonestar and leaving for Bastion.>Stonestar researchers and warriors returning to Bastion
>>48667053Yeah the tunnel is mostly collapsed and the Reconstructed are hard at work clearing it out. It looks like there had been some presence there before they hastily detonated the entrance in an attempt to hide it before they left>>48667110Ok so who first?>Buddy>Jareth
>>48667127Pass the kelp brotherBusiness first then we can can play with the deaths head
>>48667127Share the pheremone research with buddy to help with "bribes" and setting up his empire
>>48667127>JarethIf he wants to see us it must be pretty important if not urgent .
>>48667182Oh hey there's an idea. It would be risky as hell in some situations but for most deals that would be really handy.
>>48667221If he set up a den it would make deals much smoother to get doneActually that raises a question can we modify the kelp with the pheromones in mind to increase the feeling of euphoria?
>>48667258Forget the euphoria, could you imagine what they'd do with hallucination pheromone mixed in?
>>48667127You find Buddy sitting in the small mess area of the Wick eating a bowl noodles with a pair of thin plastic sticks as he scrolled through a datapad displaying the local betting and gambling halls. A holographic bust of yourself materializes over the datapad nearly making him choke in surprise. Covering his coughs with his arm he pushes the bowl away and tries to clear his throat as Eigha looks over from where she sat writing at her own pad, mandibles clicking in surprise at the sight of you projected by the Demi-Think Tank.Finally Buddy composes himself with a small laugh, "Ah, forgive me Lord Jadyk, you uh, surprised me. I was just about to contact you," he says and you can feel his nervousness through the spike in his chest."Yes, I'm sure you were. So tell me, have you made progress on your little endeavor?" you ask with a glance toward Eigha who was making to leave but sits back down as the Demi-Think Tank sends a small jolt through the spike lodged between the plates of her carapace.Buddy runs a hand over his recently shaved scalp, "Well, it went good actually. They were impressed by the narcotikelp, said it even had a catchy enough name. They're going to bring some in to show the big bosses but they seem like it's a done deal. They even joked about wanting to buy from us themselves if the deal doesn't go through," he says with a small laugh but coughs when you stare at him silent, "From what they were saying if the big bosses like it enough they'll let us bring in a decent amount first to see how it sells then depending on it's popularity they'll negotiate for bigger shipments.">cont
>>48667431Eigha speaks up with a click of her mandibles, "I did some research on these guys and I think they might be what we're looking for. Rumors and public records say they've got ties in shipping lanes, particularly food transportation between agri-worlds that much of their contraband is made on. Honestly we could probably use their shipping companies to sell both the narcotikelp, the regular food kelp, and maybe even some of the crops you have growing in the city," she says counting them off on her fingers.You nod, "Very good, Eigha. See what you two can do to establish a demand for the narcotikelp, that is your main priority. Even if that means going to every drug-den in Veraga Prime and giving away samples or operating one yourselves, I want this planet to need what we have. Good luck and may the Wormstar guide you."Eigha and Buddy bow their heads, "Glory to the Wormstar and the Armada," they intone before your image flickers out.Buddy collapses back in his seat with a heavy sigh, "That doesn't sound good for the people here, huh?"Eigha shrugs, reaches across the table to grab the abandoned bowl of noodles and returns to scrolling through her datapad, "I dunno. I like this more than being a rancher on some half-frozen backwater."Buddy nods with a small grunt, "Yeah I guess you're right. I hated those damn herd-beasts," he grumbles.
>>48667361Depends on what kind of hallucinations though bad trips don't sell well But if we can make it one hell of a fun trip and we wot have to try and sell it we will just red to make sure we have enough to get to all the buyers Also we should think about sending an envoy to open communications with the confederates so we can start diplomancing the fuckers
>>48667472Hell, with the pheromone technology we got from the Armatocere we could practically start making different strains with different kinds of effects. They would sell like hotcakes.
Has Jaydk checked the populous for Solar capable members? i feel we could make a nice order of the Solar Skellington
>>48667563I was thinking we could make a big public announcement about the prospect of recruiting energy sensitive individuals from our subjects before screening them all. Make it a big affair within the city with each head of our orders present and use the occasion to tell the people of what it entails and why they should do it. We could use the event to tell them about our immortal program too.
>>48667442The black glass walls of the Voidknights temple glint and shine with a myriad of colors as you drift down the long hallways. Jareth awaited you near the prison containing the Osjiic undead and turns to greet you with a low bow, "Lord Jadyk, thank you for coming.""Of course, Revenant Jareth. What did you wish to speak about?" you inquire as you float before him, Kyn'tk twisting in your grasp. You could feel deep below you the ritual Lorgul was in the midst of, an aura of void energy shining like a hidden star.The Voidknight jerks a thumb over his shoulder at the prison where the Deathshead Guardians were held in cells hardly large enough to move in, "Figured I'd ask you myself while Lorgul is occupied. What are you wishes for the Deathshead? They just sit there in their cells meditating. We don't think they're trying to contact anyone, we felt them try before but it's like they're in stasis. Likely out of boredom. Lorgul likes to come down and taunt them despite their lack of reaction," he says with an exasperated shrug.Revenant Jareth requests your advice on how to deal with the Deathshead Guardians you have imprisoned.>Write-in>>48667563I'll make sure we do a roll before we stop to do so, cause I think you're right in that we haven't.
>>48667634On one hand we could make more void disciples, while on the other hand we could drain them of their mighty void powers. I think I'll vote to make more disciples.This reminds me, we need to spend some time to meditate on the solar powers we recently received.
>>48667634Talk with the Deaths head directly. We can always use more Void knights. come to think of it, the captured voidsingers, we should see about recruiting them to the legion>>48667659>Thismeditate on the solar, and figure out that damned mask.
we have drakes infused with lightning, what about some void drakes, or Solar drakes?
>>48667634I hope your stay has been enjoyable... but now its time to wake up. now i have questions. Do you hear the voice of Ghul. Will you serve willingly. What do you know about the missing commander you where sent to find, why is the emperor so interested in a missing fleet.
>>48667634I'm sorry folks but the way I'm nodding off I think we need to continue this tomorrow.I hope folks had fun, I know I did running it. Thread is archived, please vote if you can.We'll deal with the Deathshead tomorrow to wrap up the thread
>>48667791Night man thanks for running. Any chance we'll get a chance to meditate on our solar powers any time soon?
>>48667791Thanks for running Gravehope the interview went well
>>48667814It seemed promising. I'm hoping.>>48667810Probably how we'll close out the thread tomorrow/today
>>48667867I will keep my fingers crossed for you. I know full well how hard it can be to get a job when your not currently employed. But the trick is keeping your spirits up and just slogging through the interviews. hope you dont mind but i might post some more art i found that reminded me of the game
Btw, any idea when we should expect the new pricings for ships and infrastructure so we can get back to universal domination?
Heres a question, if we clones an Arkham would it have Arc powers, for instance is that simply part of their species, or is it a gift they sometimes contain. Also in regards to necrotic Hero's Jaydk and nekris being the specifics in this case, have shown they can steal a power by sufficiently draining enough of that power from en entity. Does this mean if we had say... Jor, Drain a Deathshead, would he too gain some mastery over the void? or Solar or arc etc. Just a random thought, will clones have the potential for various powers with our ability to allow genetic mutations or will they essentially be blanks.
I don't know why this got stuck in my head.. but now I cant not picture Buddy speaking in a Canadian accent...
>>48668557That's pretty funny
>>48668557Ahahaha that's great
>>48667634Okay I'm back briefly to wrap this up.So options for the Deathshead Guardians are:>Attempt to speak with them>Drain them (who)>Reconstruct them (Requires Lorgul and Jareth both to assist)
>>48675207>>Attempt to speak with them
>>48675299SecondedIf they don't wake up have Jaydk drain one a little to get their attention "oh good your awake"
>>48675207>>Reconstruct them (Requires Lorgul and Jareth both to assist)Void disciples ho!
Looks like I chose a good day to be home sick Here's a question would having the void knight order feed on them be viable means of increasing their own power?
>>48675207>>Reconstruct them (Requires Lorgul and Jareth both to assist)
>>48676296They would indeed. The two full fledged Voidknights could drain them for a powerboost or have the Disciples do it
>>48676377I guess we should talk to them first, we can always reconstruct them. but needing Lorgul means we have to wait for him to finish making his soulbound weapon right?
>>48676551>needing Lorgul means we have to wait for him to finish making his soulbound weapon right?Exactly. The three Generals will finish their rituals by the next thread
>>48676551hmm, well I am going to support the two suggestions first >>48675299>>48675900if they dont responde nothings lost and when lorgul wakes up they can get a nice wakeup bath in the cauldron. Should they be unresponsive i suppose we could focus on finding Solar sensitive members in our populace, and check the System 88 confederate prisoners for potentials in solar necrotic and void. Shame we cant do a quick check for Arc yet but Nekris can look into it when he's done.
>>48675207>Attempt to speak with themWhat shall you say to them or ask?
>>48676780So, do you guys know anything at all about the Emperor you have supposedly dedicated your unlives to serving, or why he is sending fleet after fleet into my space?
>>48676726Hey Smiles, do you read Hive Queen Quest?I think you'd like it, it's similar to DAtS
>>48676842You know I never got around to it. I probably should some day. I only really got into this one when I bumped into it, i believe it was the one where it started with Jaydk remembering standing upon his ship as the world below him burned and he started taking out enemy ships with casual throws of his spear.Also i have a thing for liches. So i guess the real question is, Is HQ spooky enough?
>>48676780Ask them about the emporer, and Angona's origins.. why is the emporer so obsessed with finding her fleet. What do the Osjiic know of this sector
>>48677060It's pretty darn spooky, often in many different ways at once.
>>48676780Roll me 2d100 best of first 3 for interrogating the void-skeletons
Rolled 56, 93 = 149 (2d100)>>48677238
Rolled 86, 79 = 165 (2d100)>>48677238
Rolled 89, 3 = 92 (2d100)>>48677238rollin>>48677114You know I have always loved Giger, but you I did not realis that the alien heads are literally Dicks until you try drawing them.. i mean i know all his landscape images where literally the land having sex with itself but still Might start reading it tomorrow though, getting paid while reading quests is always fun.
>>48677360Giger was a master of sneaking innuendoes and sex organs into places you wouldn't expect them.
>>48677651I must have an eye for it, but I cannot recall seeing any of his work that wasn't sexual innuendo except for some of the stuff he did for doom. Love his work but still I always wonder if i should wash my hands after flipping through his work I remember reading he was walking through a field with a family friend when the friends son stomped on a field mouse, the father horrified apologized to Giger who wave him off picking up the field mouse while in a somewhat distant voice saying "No no, Its no trouble, I can... use this"
>>48677849Yeah okay, that's disturbing.
>>48678263speaking of Terrifying... i dont know why i made this, these threads are making me do terrible things it seems but this is our modus operendi for recruitment drives.
>>48677238Facing the cells you wave a hand and the doors slide into the walls revealing the pair of undead. Their cells were barely large enough to contain them, more sarcophagi than proper cell, a trio of Glutton Spheres set above each of their skulls. Thick bands of metal strapped their armored forms to the wall but they both raise their head and you feel their eyeless gaze upon you. The Voidflames that leaked from their collars barely covered their skulls like a flickering layer of musle, their power subdued and restrained."Good, you're awake," you say with a cheerful tone despite Jareth and several void attuned Dirges behind you. Kyn'tk reaches out and taps several tines like fingers across their armor, "I had some questions and the rest of the Osjiic just don't have the knowledge I require. You will tell me what you know, truthfully and quickly."The Deathshead that lost its arm in its defeat and capture shifts as if they were trying to stretch despite their bonds before their voice answers, "Speak then.""You Deathshead undead dedicate yourselves to this Empire but do you know why your Emperor sends so many of his citizens and soldiers to their death against me? For one little scouting fleet that was only hunting down pirates? Please enlighten me," you ask as Kyn'tks tines slowly start to drill into the chest plate of the other guardian.Yet despite the weapon threatening them the Deathshead passively answers, "Sub-Admiral Estkri is of importance to the Emperor. Her relation to him is unknown and pointless among the Osjiic. We are raised by the Empire, our families were are comrades in battle."The one-armed undead speaks up suddenly, "She was integral to the Emperor claiming the throne after the old perished in battle against the Armatocere.">cont>>48678888Oh man, this is great
>>48679364You and the other Deathshead both look in surprise at him, Kyn'tk releasing its hold to jut at the other, "How do you know this?""She had the chance to be Emperor herself but instead threw her support behind the current Emperor and it allowed him to claim it for himself. He feels he owes her for that support," the guardian says before looking forward and falling silent once more.Tapping your chin with a claw you mutter to yourself over this revelation. You were right in assuming the Emperor felt a personal sense of loyalty to Estkri in that he was willing to use so many ships and troops in attempting to retrieve her or enact revenge. You look back up to them, "Tell me about this Emperor.""He is much like any other Emperor I have served or ruled the Osjiic. He knows the Osjiic depend on conquest, we know no other way to unite us as a species. There are the weak-willed that willingly serve our enemies such as you or the Netu. The Emperor has been preparing for larger operations against our foes. He spoke of wanting to eliminate the Netu pirate clans and cripple the UON. To drive the Wraith from our sectors. And now he will deal with you," they say without moving"Very lofty goals indeed. We shall see," you float there as you think, debating how you shall deal with these uncooperative undead.>Drain>Reconstruct(Terribly sorry about that. Had to run some emergency errands. Waterline under toilet broke and nearly flooded)
>>48678888I thought that was a stationary image until I clicked on it, very nicely done.
>>48679392>. Waterline under toilet broke and nearly flooded)ouch>after the old perished in battle against the Armatocere."Really now?>Give them to Lorgul to do as he would with them.
>>48679392>>ReconstructYou will very soon realize why attempting to raise armies against me is a doomed effort.
>>48679392Let them choose.
>>48679452Tell me if nearby osjiic sectors Wich are of greater importance where do you refuel What areas are vulnerable If your emporer can only unite your people through conquest then perhaps I can help him by televising him if such, lofty burdens Those who serve me are not weak, you will find that much like yourself that compared to when compared to me there was never much chance of winning to begin with but do not fret all I conquer are free to live and do as they please so long as they serve
>>48679364>>48679413what can i say, i have alot of free time since I'm home sick for a change. >>48679571this mixed with this>>48679586Live and serve, or die and serve it matters not to me. Look around you, I have been out of my box for a few months and in that time i have crushed your forces, tamed serpants and have reborn the voidknight order of old, And this time the universe is not united against me, I suggest you make your choices soon though, the void hungers
>>48679586I like this bit about those serving me not being weak. Really seems to drive home how powerful we have become and how powerful we CAN become.
>>48679692on a threat level scale of local problem to galactic scourge I think you will find Jaydks potential is Terrible to behold, I look forward to the pun filled interrogation of the Father from the solar
>>48680165Oh god the puns. In aeons hence whatever remnants of the sunscale still live will speak in hushed tones of the puns Jadyk wrought that day.
>>48680210Why Solar, you look positively Rattled!. Did you forget about the Skeletons in your closet? now now no need to look so Spooked I wont leave you to Molder away in some halfheartedly crafted sepulcher, in fact, I feel we should cut straight to the Bones of the matter
>>48679392"Do you Honestly compare me and my armada to the threat of the armada? I ask because i have never Fought myself But i think untiring unceasing undead with no morals would be more of a threat than pirates"
>>48679692Imagine How powerful Jadyk will be if he drains the wormstar fragment.
>>48680496>Draining the last living fragment of our beloved godI don't want to call you a heretic, because we're playing a lich of all things, but I really can't think of any other term with enough weight.
>>48680588I never suggested we actually do it... I said Imagine how powerful he would become
>>48680588>>48680704well considering its a corrupted shard... We would be, unifying and purifying it, the worm star cannot be remade by sticking its peices back together, but it can be reborn into a new form. also i have a weird vibe that the Duchess is actually the shard because for all we know the shard is a sentient living/un-living thing... Gods are weird>getting a weird image of Grave being washed out to sea by a flooding toilet while screaming "Damn Sunscale sabotage!"
>>48679392"You really are foolish if you were to compare the threat of my Armada to some pirates. I have defeated every enemy sent against me and I have only been free to build my own empire for mere months," this gets their attention and they turn empty sockets to you, "I have crushed Osjiic, Pirate, Confederate fleets, I have slain and shackled the Ahkam. I bend all I encounter to serve me in life or death and you shall be no different."The one still whole makes to speak but you cut him off, your voice carrying a hint of anger, "Your Emperor is so poor a leader he can only unite your people through conquest, then perhaps I can give my assistance in that regard. You will find that those sent against me break. When they are broken they are given a choice like all my subjects. Servitude in life or servitude through death, just as you served your Empire with your lives as Voidsingers and then again as the Deathshead Guardians.Tell me, do you hear the words of Ghul? The whispers that lurk between the hymns of the Void? He speaks of his reincarnation and the call for all those burning with his flame," you can feel their gazes on you, almost sense their growing unease, "I am his message. I am the instrument that brought about the Reconstruction of the Voidknight Order. Should his inheritors decide, you two shall be apart of this grand order or used for fuel their might.Rejoice, you shall know your true purpose soon," you finish and wave a hand, the doors sealing before they could respond. Turning you float past Jareth but pause, "Tell Lorgul when he is finished that you two must decide their fates. They are the business of the Voidknights Reborn," you tell him before drifting down the glass-coated halls
>>48681446Damn but we are one smooth lich lord.
>>48681446>>48681513I suppose if you spend several centuries alone in the dakr you eventually have enough mental conversations with yourself to be able to suave your way out of every encounteralso decided to work further on this image, lets see how far we go with it
>>48681446So next thread when Lorgul finishes his ritual (along with Nekris and Valresko) he and Jareth will decide the fate of the two Deathshead. They do not seem willing to serve you.I'll be up for a while if folks have questions or suggestions. Sorry today was kinda off, it was surprisingly hectic
>>48682302Not much you can do to prepare for exploding toilets dude, thanks for running. Think we could get a bit of meditation on the solar in next thread?
>>48682338Of course, sorry we didn't get to it this thread
So when do people think I should bring back Ghoul Quest?
>>48682442When you've developed an interesting and rewarding tech and or magic tree for it. I love them Ghoulies and the narrative is really engaging, but we need more than that to interact with the quest. I've mentioned this before but we need some kind of yardstick which we can measure our impact as players on the success or failures of the tribe. That, and when you've cut down on post times outside of dramatic events like battles. For the day to day stuff being able to vote more frequently makes things fun for us.
>>48682442I was actually wondering if it would be better to do them once each a week if it's not too much paper work month long hiatus can lose you casual members for both games Mind you I don't run a quest so I don't know how much you need to sort through to run each quest
>>48682581Yeah I've been working on them a little bit but I do need to focus and make one that works. This is a portion of what I've been working on>Clay Working - >Primitive Clay Bricks - >Primitive Brick Laying - Fired Clay Bricks(*) - Brick Mortar - Clay Furnace )^(- Ceramics)#( - Advanced Brick Mortar - Basic Brick Laying - Advanced Brick Laying>Primitive Stone Tools - >Primitive Cold Metal Shaping - >Stone Forge)*( - >Basic Metal Shaping - Advanced Stone Forge - Advanced Metal Shaping - Fine Metal Shaping (#) Anything that is in () needs what supplies )(Anything with > is learned
>>48682302Life has a habit of eating away at your free time when you least expect it. Thanks for running though >>48682338Maybe as part of the meditation he does a search for the solar potentials within the armada. I imagine learning how to focus on the sun within will make them shine out like beacons in the night.
>>48683058Why are you so interested in solar potentials specifically? We also have potentials for all the other elements in our population, why this one in particular?
>>48683100well, nekris will need to look at each individual in person to screen for potentials, as does lorgul. Jaydk having the power of the solar Can screen the whole population in a much short span of time. Once we get arc powers for Jaydk and the reforged powers he can screen for those otherwise we kind of lock Nekris down while he goes face to face with everyone And i feel it would be, prudent to have an order of units who are exceptional at dealing with enemy undead, what with wandering wraiths [and voidknights] who might bring all kinds of necrotic to our door.Its also why i like the idea of spreading or making the energy types we use more universal/diverse. Less likely to get curb stomped by something that is specifically powerful against one energy type. Point in case, Jaydk vs the Albino commander. we didn't much head way until he switched to void to counter the solar power he was fighting. I mean, it almost sounds like Anon doesn't praise the sun.
>>48683184But we don't need the heads of the orders specifically to detect the potential to manipulate energies in mortals, their subordinates and even dirges attuned to said energies can do that. And Jadyk isn't the only one with solar energies here, he has his own seperate order dedicated to manipulating solar energies. I love the idea of diversifying our field of energy manipulation techniques, which is why I think we should start recruiting potentials of every variety at once when we get the chance. This would be a huge deal to our subjects as well remember, we're giving them the chance to rise to positions of great power within the armada. Why not use it as big event for our subjects, one that redefines our connection to them?
>>48683014That's reassuring Graves, I'm glad to see you've been thinking about this.
>>48683278huh i thought only Jaydk could scan the populace, where as the various orders could only do it when face to face where as Jaydk just does it via the dreamstones/dominion spikesOtherwise yeah, find all candidates induct from there
>>48683499The void disciple on the Council world was able to pick up on on of the native's void potential, and he hasn't even earned his name yet. Our generals have got this shit man.
>>48683613Well in that case we should organise an Accadamy for training potential users, where they can practice their skills but also spar against different element types so they can learn to work together and combat enemy casters.
>>48682442Both of you're quest's are awesome graves i'd love to see what the ghouls get up to
>>48682338>Not much you can do to prepare for exploding toilets dudewhat?
>>48683613The understanding i got was that he could see it because he was in visual range of it, and void users are kinda special, They Can see the Ocean of energy that is the Void, linking and surrounding everything
>>48687902He had a plumbing emergency
