Welcome back to xenomorph quest! Sorry for the late start! Real life reared its ugly head and fucked me like a cheap whore today. But im back and ready to run for you guys!Previous thread-http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1035266/Last time we infected a hobo, killed his cat in glorious combat and found our dead mom and living siblings! We ate dogs, became a warrior, found a juicy colony and a isolated farm full of moomoos and naive human bumpkins.Cast and crew! Grimalkin-Head honcho/Warrior10hp5pts armor+physically strong (can easily overpower trained humans and large animals)+Enhanced combat ability (+1 to personal combat rolls)+Enhanced resin (sets quicker, sets stronger)+THE BOSS (+2 to any roll involving Grimalkin and another/other xenos)-bulky and slow (for a xeno. -1 against fast opponents)Twitch-Hunter8hp+Extremely fast (+1 to ambush and evasion rolls)+Enhanced combat ability+Naturally stealthy (+1 to personall stealth rolls)+Terrifying (civilian humans WILL panic in close quarters)-average strength (can overpower human civilians and medium animals)+Enhanced resin+Enhanced tracking ability (+1 to tracking rolls)Bob-Drone8hp+physically strong+Enhanced resin+Skilled hive builder (Hive improvements with Bob involved take less time)-workaholic (will work until he drops if you let him)-bulky and slowYou are Grimalkin, you are currently enjoying a xeno cuddle pile with the exhausted Bob, the industrious drone worked himself to exhaustion clearing rubble and laying down resin to further protect the hive. Your hive can now support 30 xenos max!You stir and glance at the cocoon of half eaten flesh and resin that is Twitch. The Hyperactive xeno is almost finished with his metamorphosis into a Hunter. Nearby you spy 2 resin coated dogs sealed to the walls. You could implant them for runners or drones if you wanted. You still have 3 small eggs and 1 warrior egg.Speaking of warriors you observe the comatose bull for a moment. Its belly is swollen to the limit and the aggressive embyro is clearly nearly ready to emerge. What do?> Scout colony (only possible at night)> Scout farm (safest at night)> write in.
>>1039999>Scout farm (safest at night)
>>1039999> Scout farm (safest at night)That's our big juicy objective. With all those cows and humans, we'll be able to make more xenos and evolve them all.
>>1039999> Scout farm (safest at night)Start small and work our way up. Working at night, mostly.
>>1039999>> Scout farm (safest at night)
>scout farm (nighttime)Your goal in mind you curl back into the cuddle pile with Bob, visions of carnage and bloodshed dancing in your head. At night you will venture forth to the farm. *fast forwarding till nighttime*You venture out of the cave system, moonlight glinting off your claws and carapace. Bounfing forth between rocks and ravine edges you set a quick pace towards the isolated farm.You slink over the nearby ridge and take note of the farms layout and potential opportunities.You see--37 cattle-one truck-one car-2 large barns-Annies pen (prize cow)-farmhouse-inhabitants- Pa, Mrs.Abel, Billy Abel, Duke (dog)> Write in what do?
>>1040382> take a few more cows
>>1040382>>1040395> also sabotage one vehicle
>>1040382take out the dog first so it doesn't alert the family. Then slash the tires on the truck and car and finally harass the cattle so someone will come out and we can take down the family one by one.
>>1040407changing to this
>>1040382Kill amd take all the humans. Should be easy while they are asleep
> kill guard doggo, slash tires, cause chaos.You creep forward, low to the ground as you advance toward the old dog resting on the front porch of the farmhouse. The elderly mutts ears twitch as you come near> lunge!> remain still> write in
>>1040519>remain stillwe need this kill to be quite
> remain stillYour stealth skills could make a shadow look obvious. You are instantly motionless, a faint black smear upon the landscape. Duke relaxes back into slumber with a tires growl and you resume your advance. A quick jab with your tail blade pierces the dogs skull. Only a faint crunch and some light twitching are audible. Continuing on your mission you begin looking for ways to disable the vehicles.Roll me a d20 on vehicle sabotage

Rolled 19 (1d20)>>1040673
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>1040673
> 19 excellent success!You quickly set to work on the vehicles, slashing tires, ripping wires and even spewing resin into the engine. Theyre both completely scrapped. The farm is completely cut off until the farmhands return tomorrow morning. What do?
>>1040753> look into the house to see if anyone is asleep
>>1040753sneak through the house and find out where everyone is sleeping.
>look in windowsYou creep around the house, occassionally peering inside to check on the humans. The bottom floor is empty save for Pa Abel sleeping in a recliner. The top floor has Billy abel sleeping and the next bedroom has Mrs.Abel sleeping comfortably with the window open. What do?
>>1040910> Take Ma AbelThe kid and the dad will assume huan kidnappers after seeing the cars.When they come looking.... we go snacking.
>>1040910> Break Mrs. Abel's vocal cords and cripple her.
>>1040926changing to this
>>1040910sneak in through window and take out Mrs. Abel. (as in knocking her out or trapping her in resin) Our goal should be to catch all the humans before they know we're here and bring them all back to our cave.
> enter window, secure old ladyYou crawl up the wall quickly and quietly, easing your frame through the frame without a sound. Mrs. Abel is sleeping so soundly she doesnt even wake from your resin coating her body and mouth until its already too late to escape. You have subdued Mrs.Abel! Do you..> Retreat with your human prize> go for broke, get billy and pa while youre at it!Roll me 2d20 for stealth subdues

Rolled 7, 2 = 9 (2d20)>>1041062
> 18, 11 good success!!You quickly creep into Billy's room, securing the young man under a thick layer of resin before he even wakes up. One down! Creeping down the stairs you see Pa Abel is still where you last saw him. Sleeping on the recliner, as you creep toward him a floorboard squeaks loudly under your foot. The sharp noise wakes the crotchety old farmer who only has time for a horrified glimpsglimpse of your claws and fangs as hes bound head to toe in thick resin.Congratulations! You have successfully subdued the Abel family. If you move quickly you can have all three of them back at the hive by sunup.Slinging all three resin coated bundles over your shoulder you set off back towards the hive.How do you want them implanted?You have 3 drone eggs and 1 warrior egg.The farm has 37 cattle remaining in its fields and barns.The farmhands will return in the morning.
>>1041187> give the last warrior egg to one of the humans and 2 of the drone eggs
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>1041196Yup. Then with all the cows we can feed them. Tho I wonder if we will have the chance depending on the humans.
>>1041187warrior egg for sure and then the rest with drones. I would like to keep an eye on the farm as well just so we know what the farm hands will do. Maybe not so much as to stop them but to be ready for whatever they do try and do.
>>1041187>>1041196second.So. How do we get more eggs? Do we lay them like other queens or do we just have to find them?
> 2 drone eggs and 1 warriorSecuring the unfortunate humans to the wall you place eggs in front of them. The older, weaker humans receiving small eggs while the young healthy human is reserved for the warrior egg. Their screams of terror are quickly silenced by suffocating proboscises.Twitch exitedly bounds closer to you, deftly leaping over the still sleeping Bob. He excitedly shows you his new form. His claws are large and hooked, perfect for ripping flesh while his tail spike is a vicious barbed hook. Spikes and spines adorn his carapace and his legs are swollen with muscle. Twitch has become a Hunter.With a pained bellow the implanted bull draws your attention. The skin along its belly stretching to its limits.. and beyond them. With a gory rip the flesh gives way, spilling a thrashing young xeno onto the floor. Ox has been born!Ox- heavy warrior12hp8pts armor+Massive (6ft at the shoulder)+Extremely physical strong (can destroy light vehicles and structures)+Thick skin -extremely clumsy (-3 against fast opponents and -2 on evasion rolls)-cannot into stealthWhat do?
>>1041400let bob sleep and have ox guard the cave while we and Twitch keep an eye on the farm. Might be able to steal another cow or two before the farm hands show up and at the very least we'll be able to see what the farm hands will do when they find the family is gone.
>>1041400>>1041429Second.Also that Moment when you want to find an elephant and see if you can make something that can destroy tanks.
>>1041429>>1041437These are good ideas.
>>1041331Grimalkin will develop into a queen after her Praetorian stage (2 more molts).My evolution/mutation plan isRunner-Hunter-Shadow/Slasher PraetorianDrone-Warrior/Builder<Reaver Hive architectHeavy warrior/drone-Brute-TitanBut its up to you guys :)
>>1041437Feed ox plenty and he shall grow to impress.
>>1041429Ox is actuallt still a baby but he should be capable of standing guard.
>>1041465one of the reasons I wanted him to stay home.
> scout farm with twitchYou stretch your limbs and gesture for Twitch to follow. Ox pulls his gore covered maw from the remains of his bovine host, looking at you hopefully. With a thought you direct the rapidly maturing warrior to stand guard at the entrance to the hive. Tearing a leg from the bull he hurries to do your bidding, eager to please.Leaving the cave at a sprint you head straight towards the farm, racing the coming dawn.You crest the last ridge within minutes it seems, Twitch settling beside you, tail twitching with nervous energy. You can see several vehicles coming from a good distance away. You may have time to secure a cow or 2 before they arrive. D20+2 > specify if you want them alive or dead.
Rolled 8, 16 + 2 = 26 (2d20 + 2)>>1041529>dead

Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1041529kinda need food at some point
Rolled 17 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1041529dead
> 18! Great success!You and Twitch dash down the hill as fast as you can. You head towards the nearby lot containg several fat healthy cows. As you near the fence Twitch leaps onto your back and springs forward, tail spike extended. One young bull looks up just in time to catch a foot of barbed chitin in the eye. He drops without a sound. You tackle a hefty heifer and make short work of her skull with your inner jaws. Hauling both corpses onto your back you make a VERY labored retreat toward the ridge. You barely clear the lip as the first vehicles pull into the farm.Propping the bodies against a rock you and Twitch return to watching the Farmhands. 5 have arrived and are headed toward the farmhouse as a group. What do?
>>1041703Watch Quietly and as opportunities rise kill them one by one
>>1041703Is Duke still dead on the front porch?
>>1041743Duke is still on the front porch with his skull split, the living rom and both bedrooms have thick globs of resin everywhere and the vehicles are visibly damages.
>>1041703watch I guess, not much else we can do without more xenos
>>10417035 with no weapons? We can, if needed, have twitch rush to damage the new cars. Then we can pick them off or take them all one.Tho with out burn this place some how. I doubt we can cover all our tracks.
> watch and waitThe 5 farmhands continue up to the house, occasionally loudly yelling for Mr.Abel. sudden shouts of alarm and horror sound as they find Dukes body, skull split open and lifeless. A panicked yell of "Mr.Abel, Billy, Ma'am?!?!" Is heard. They begin searching the house. More cries of alaralarms and disgust are heard as they find the leftover resin and missing residents. They quickly file put of the house and begin searching the area. 2 head towards the barns, 2 head towards the Abel familys vehicles, 1 head towards the cattle lot near you. Theyre searching intently.What do?> Sit tight> Fall back> write in
>>1041899Fall in kill the one heading towards cattle first
>>1041899>> Sit tight
>>1041899> Sit tight
>>1041899disable their vehicles if you can. just slash the tires. No trying to stop them from leaving so much as slowing them down so we can steal the rest of the cows before they come back with help.
> sit tightYou and Twitch fall into your time honored style of sitting still as statues, the wary farmhand counting the cows and circling the lot toward you. Suddenly he stops and inspects his boot. He has found a blood trail!Looking around warily he follows the trail of blood up the ridge toward you.He is alerted to danger.> ambush with twitch. D20+3> Twitch, do your stuff d20+1>send twitch to disable vehicles. Youve got this bumpkin d20

> 12 Slim success!With a burst of thought from you Twitch bounds away, headed toward the farmhands vehicles. Meanwhile you burst out of cover just as the farmhand comes over the ridge."HOLY SHIT!" is a poor choice of last words but you arent one to judge. One powerful claw grips his throat and pins him to the ground. Hes too terrified to even struggle.> kill> restrain> baitAlso roll me a d20+1 for twitches stealth vehicle sabotage

Rolled 19 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>1042186> bait
> 18 great success!You slam the Farmhands head into the ground with precise force, knocking him out cold. You quickly restrain him with resin over his mouth and his torso and legs. Hes not going anywhere.You peak over the ridge and see Twitch but only barely. The elusive and speedy xeno darts and crawls between cover whenever eyes turn in his direction. He quickly reaches the vehicles and sets to work, his hooked claws and vicious tail spike puncturing tires and gas tanks. The farmhands are stuck here with you now.4 farmhands remain. They are alert but not suspecting danger. 2 are still by the Abel's vehicles and 2 are inside the barn.What do?
>>1042271>Ambush the ones by the vehicles
>>1042271the two in the barn are basically trapped. Grab twitch and take them out while the other two are still looking at the cars.
>>1042283switching to this
>>1042280>>1042283Do you want them dead or alive? You only have 1 more egg so more hosts are useless right now.
>>1042293>Take them alive, Burn EVERYTHING.
>>1042293alive if we can but I won't lose any sleep of it if they die. Mostly want the humans for the eggs and the cows for food.
>>1042340but there's currently only one more egg
>>1042375but this way we get to chose the best human to host the egg
> go for the barn pair, alive if possible.Dropping to all fours you dash around the ridge, Twitch circling towards you you both take up positions at opposite ends of the barn. One of the farmhands is near you. He (for some reason) is armed with a rusty pitchfork and is gripping it nervously as he checks the stalls for traces of... you but thats ridiculous. You were never in there. Silly human. The other is up in the hay loft digging through piles of loose straw. Not a bright bunch these.What do?> two possible targets. Farmhand Dayle is ground level. Armed with a rusty pitchfork. Unaware of your presence. Farmhand Cletus is in the hay loft near Twitchs end of the barn. He is unarmed and distracted.D20+3 for whatever action you suggest.
Rolled 4 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1042403> Strangle Dayle until he's unconscious
>>1042403twitch can tackle the farm hand into the hay to cover himself and distract the floor level farmhand. When he turns to see what happened we'll jump him and take him out quick. Don't actually let them scram as their still are two more out there.
>>1042473Care to roll for that lolGood idea
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1042498sorry
>8+3=11. WEW LADYou quickly coordinate with Twitch. The stealthy xeno begins scaling the side of the barn. Climbing through the hay loft door he springs onto Cletus, pinning the farmhand into the hay while spewing resin onto his face and torso. The loud thump of Cletus' s impact prompts Dayle to spin around toward the noise. You take this golden opportunity and step forward, grabbing Dayle by the throat you squeeze tightly... perhaps TOO tightly as his neck snaps like a twig. Shit. Well 2/3 isnt that bad so far.2 farmhands remain. What do??
>>1042557>ambush the remaining farm hands
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1042557For dem.
>>1042569Assuming you want them alive?
>>1042557Tell Twitch to go wait in the vehicle that is closest to the last two.Then we go and show ourselves to them, maybe waggling Doyles corpse at them in a rude gesture sort of way, try to scare the shit out of them so that they high tail it back to the vehicles, then Twitch can jump them in the confined space.Or just bum rush them, but still throw Doyles corpse at one of them.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1042557Watch em. They don't know what has happen. So we see what they are up to and hit when nether can get anyway.Probably have twitch never any fast looking creature. For the off chance they ride it.
>>1042588I personally don't care either way
>>1042590*waves corpse rudely* that mental image man.
>>1042557any spot that we could use to leap on the last two from above? Like the house or a garage? No one ever looks up so it would make it a nice easy way to to end this.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>1042597Ya' know what I'll go with this guys suggestion.
>>1042621The last 2 farmhands are quite close to the house. You are too large to easily sneak onto the roof in daylight. Twitch can do it easily. If you provide a distraction he will recieve a heavy ambush bonus.
>>1042653We could put on Doyles clothes and blend in with them.
>>1042666Hello fellow bipedals.
> didnt even require a roll but ill never ignore a 20. You are watching the FUCK out of those guys. You settle with twitch at a knothole in the barn. Observing the two farmhands argue about what to do. One of them, cleaner than the other is very loudly demanding that they call "Col-Sec" to come "check this shit out". The other seems to agree and pulls a small device out of his pocket and begins tapping it.> colony security is about to be notified. Do or die time > get these dipshits (dead or alive)> beat feet back home with your haul (2 live humans, 1 dead, 2 dead cows)> Other
>>1042666>>1042679Guys this could work if they're dumb enough, and considering they're farm hands they might be
>>1042688> colony security is about to be notified. Do or die time Hopefully we can start a fire here.
>>1042688> get these dipshits, dead
>>1042696You can start a fire but it will be visible to the colony.
>>1042688> Get these dipshits (dead).> Burn this place, including the vehicles, to the ground. Make sure to eliminate any traces of evidence. As far as anyone will be aware, this was a tragic crime of arson by one or several criminals.
>>1042688>> get these dipshits (deadUse the already dead one as a projectile. At the one with the phonething.
> get these dipshits. DEADYou quickly relay a battle plan to twitch. He scales the wall toward the roof and readies himself on the side farthest from the farmhands. Meanwhile you drop down to the ground floor and grab Dayle's body by a leg. You sprint around the corner nearest the Farmhand with the phone just as Twitch screeches and launches from the roof at the clean farmhand.Roll me 2 d20 for twitchs WITNESS ME leap and Grimalkins corpse slinging skills.
>>1042688>colony security is about to be notified. Do or die timeanything we can throw to distract them for a minute while twitch get's into position? I mean just throw something to distract them, have twitch get above them, then we can just walk out in plain daylight where they can see us because that sure as hell will get their attention and then twitch can jump on the two of them and we can rush in to help.

>>1042818the newest sensation sweeping the nation
> 16, 18. Noice.The clean farmhand only has a moment to process the sight before him before Twitch impacts his torso like a hate fueled blender. Blood and organs landing for yards around as the unfortunate man is nearly torn in half by the energetic xeno. And HES the lucky one.With all the immense strength of your upper body you sling Dayle at the Farmhand with the phone. You may not know your own strength as the horribly unlucky man recieces 200lbs of sweaty redneck crotch first at 80mph. Even if his head wasnt pulped by the impact hed probably beg for death.You have successfully stopped col-sec from being notified. Your presence is still unknown. You have cleared the farm of hostiles. You can use straw from the barn and the fireplace in the house to start fires to eliminate evidence. The farm has 35 cows remaining. Your haul is 2 live humans, 3 dead humans, 2 dead cows. Congratulations!What to do?
>>1042847Look over the two living humans and determine which of them is at least the healthier of the two, and use that one for the final egg.Then we feast.
>>1042847well it's going to be some time before people show back up here to see where everyone went so for now grab our prizes, (the humans and dead cows) and head back home. When we get some more drones to burst we can have them help us drag the rest of the cattle back to our cave to feed everyone up so they all can get bigger and then once we existence all this farm's cattle we can burn it down to hide our exist for a bit longer.
>>1042847No one knows about the condition of the farm yet so we should capitalize on this.For now, start taking as many cows as we can each day back to the hive. Once we clear the place out, burn it to the ground.
>>1042847> Firstly, eat the bodies.> Then, carry the captive humans back to the nest.> Finally, we can return with Ox and the new hatchlings to shepherd the cows over to the hills surrounding our nest.If we can learn some animal husbandry and hunt down the wild dogs in the hills, we will have a plentiful source of meat and/or hosts for some time.
>>1042862>once we existence all this farm's cattle>existenceexhaust, I meant to put down exhaust.
>>1042872...So we basically just took over farm duties is what you're saying?

> inspect live humans. Bring back booty!You give each subdued human a thorough inspection. Poking, prodding and sniffing reveal the one you knocked out on the ridge is superior to "Cletus" in every way except fungus growth. You absently spear Cletus through the throat with your tail spike and begin loading up your haul onto your back. Twitch carries 2 human corpses and you carry 2 dead humans, 1 dead cow and 1 live human, dragging the largr dead cow behind you. You have a feast for your growing hive!!Who is going to molt this time? Grimalkin-Praetorian Bob-Warrior/Builder
>>1042904Just as a reminder, if Grimalkin molts into a Praetorian she will no longer be able to stealth or infiltrate
>>1042904>Bob-Warrior/BuilderI'd like to get a few more drones before we start going the queen route seeing as once we go big it's going to be a bitch of a time sneaking around and we still need to scout out the colony.
>>1042912That's fine, we need to start moving things along for ourselves.
>>1042912It would also mean we need to upgrade our hive's tunnels if we want to move through right?
>>1042904> GrimalkinAlso, If we manage to shepherd the cows back to the hills near the lair, we should have at least two Xenos keeping an eye on them at all times.>>1042912Ah, but that's what Twitch and his future companions are for. With all of these cows, Grimalkin will be able to reach Queen stage in short order.
>>1042920Bob has cleared many tunnels that could accomadate a queen sized xeno. Assigning helper drones or upgrading him to Builder will allow advanced construction and hive upgrades.
>>1042929 well we can assign some of the new drones once their ready.
>>1042929Okay, so I think the general plan is;> Grimalkin grows to Praetorian.> Bob grows to Builder.> Twitch, Ox and new hatchlings herd the cows back home.> Use the last human as a host for a warrior.> Turn at least four of the cows into hosts for more drones.
>>1042941sounds good to me
>>1042941sounds solid. lets do it.
>>1042912I feel we can trust our growing brood to take over. If we can get eggs going that is.Start building up some hunters and gather up good pack to move into setting up missions on the colony.
> Grimalkin to Praetorian locked inArriving back at the hive you stop to gawk at the fully matured Ox that stands before you. A hulking mass of armored plates covers his body. His tail is thick and strong, ending in a tip that is equal parts mace and battle axe. His head is encased in a shell of iron hard chitin. He snorts at you happily and sneaks a chunk of Dayle as you pass by.Entering the hive you spot several new tunnels and additional rooms. You spot Bob directing a pair of freshly matured drones as they expand a tunnel upwards. Piling the fresh food against a wall you take a moment to consider your ravenous hunger as twitch curls up for a nap with the new warrior. You tear into the larger cow and eat it down to the hooves. You need more food. You need to grow....Grimalkin is molting into a Praetorian. You are> Twitch> Ox> Bob
>>1042968Oh shit, uh...You know what let's go with Ox. I wanna' develop him some more.
>>1042968>Bobtwitch had his time to shine and Bob has been around longer then ox
>>1042968> TwitchSo far, he's shown smarts, and he's now got experience hunting, tracking, and killing. He can be our lieutenant, as it were. We should also come up with more names for the new hatchlings, and future spawn.> Titus> Basil> Lump> Custer> Midnight> Ebony> Tiny> Wolf> Cisco> Typhon> Kila> Cleopatra> Cestus (as in the old spiked gladiator gauntlet)These are just off the top of my head.
>>1042941You have 1 small egg left. You can produce a drone and mold him into a warrior but until you become a queen you cannot produce more eggs.
>>1042984>>1042985When we get that new Drone I vote we call him Tiny.
>>1042984As much as I would love to name every xeno 5-6 is the maximum amount of Named/playables I can keep up with :) ill try though!
>>1042968>> TwitchIt feels right. We can have Ox be our buddy and have this duo form.
>>1042985We don't really need to be super strong right now anyway. Grabbing those cows will make it easier to support ourselves as we expand the hive.Assuming that each of the nest members eats one cow per, we would still have enough to feed ourselves for more than a week, instead of wasting time and energy hunting.
>>1042999>>1042998changing to twitch
>>1042997True. Eventually, we aim to have a solid colony of at least twenty, likely more, xenos when we set our sights on that colony.
>>1043004Yeah same, if Ox can be our buddy then I'm cool with it.
>>1042998>>1043010Its like an alien buddy cop movie, only with more gore and violence.
>>1043016So it's exactly like an alien buddy cop movie.
> you are TwitchYou rise from your power nap yawning and stretching happily. The younger warrior seems relieved that you are no longer using his gead as a leg rest. You leap closer to Grimalkins cocoon. Poking it with an inquisitive claw earns you a growl from within.You take a moment to observe The tireless Bob direct his minions.. ahem "helpers" as they carve out new tunnels and rooms. You estimate the hive could comfortably support 35 xenos.What do?> Scout solo> scout with the warrior> scout with ox.
>>1043041> Scout solo
>>1043041>> scout with the warrior
>>1043041> scout with ox.
>>1043041>Scout with OxWe gonna' bro it up.
>>1043041>> scout with oxsee if we can't find some clue as to what killed the old queen.
>>1043041>> scout with ox.We find them, you knock them down.
>>1043051Oh shit yeah, that's an actual plan.
>>1043041> Scout with the Warrior.
> scout with oxYou have an urge to go exploring. One problem.. you are small. You know just the right companion! Dashing towards the entrance to the hive you see ox still at his post. Youre not sure hes moved. At all. You leap on his back and tap his head with your tail. You wanna gooooo. Get up ox. Sending him thoughts of exploration and danger gets no results. He merely dozes and ignores you. Oh well. He must not want any FOOD. He jumps to his feet. You now have his attention.Where to go? > north-towards colony> west-towards Abel Farms> east-???> south-???
>>1043085>> east-???let's save the colony for night... and when we have much more sneaky companions to help us scout it out.
>>1043085>> east-???>>1043089Agreed, our main hive is vulnerable at the moment. No need to stir things up
>>1043085I just realized what we're doing.
>>1043085> SouthWhat direction was that colony located? We should keep that in mind as we explore/hunt/build. Don't want to attract any attention before we're ready.>>1043112How do you translate Hakuna Matata into alien speech? Would it just be a bunch of hisses, screeching, clicks and growls?
>>1043122Colony is to the north.
>>1043122"Ha-hoo-ha ma-ha-ha"?Their inner mouth doesn't seem very flexible.
>>1043130I think we'll just stick with HISSSSSS!!! and SKREEEEE!!!They're oldies, but goodies.
>>1043138Yeah, that makes much more sense (and funnier).I just speculated would happen if a xenomorph alien attempted to emulate human speech with what it had anatomically.
You leap onto Ox's back to direct his plodding pace toward the east. Theres enough space here for 4 of you on his back. Damn hes big. And slow. You curl up and get comfortable. This is gonna take a while.Several hours laterYoure finally out of the hives territory and leaving the dry, rocky, boulder strewn ravines behind. Youre approaching thick woods, the air is filled with the sound of insects. Ox lazily chomps on a firefly that drifted too close. There has to be something good here. Good prey, good hive spot, good something!Roll a d20 for discovery!

Rolled 10 (1d20)Also rollin' for attack.
> momma aint raise no bitchYou snarl angrily from your lofty perch atop Ox's back. The bear returns a earthshaking roar which finally gets ox's attention. He fixes a murderous gaze on the bear and roars so loudly even the bear looks shocked.

>>1043257This world isn't ready for the fastball special.
> 22! EXTRA CRITICAL SUCCESYour acidic blood sings with warrior fury as you and your companion do the unthinkable and charge this (former) apex predator. The bear rears back onto its hind legs in an attempt to scare you off and doing so It seals its doom. You leap forward, carried by momentum as you blur by the bears head, your razor sharp claws slashing through its throat just as Ox's titanic tail blade crashes into its chest like a meteor of apocalyptic wrath. The impact flings the bears ruined corpse backwards so hard it cracks the tree it impacts.> you win! Teamwork is stronger than bears. You have 1 large bear carcass and have unlocked eastern hunting grounds!.
>>1043257I only count the first 3 rolls. We had a preemptive roll but we were already in combat so I counted it.
>>1043263Noice. Delicious bear meat, delicious validation as the new alpha predators, and wonderful new lands to explore and conquer.
>>1043263sweet. Now let's drag this bad boy home so the rest of the family can know how great we are... that and also a new place to hunt for food and other host once we clear out all the cows on the farm.
>>1043263>Teamwork is stronger than bears.I love this Quest so much.Alright lets take the corpse back, by the time we get home Big Momma' should be awake.
> So return the conquering herosYou spend several minutes with Ox chittering in pure excitement at what just happened. You decide the bear is a good reward for your hard work. You and ox work together to load the enormous beast onto his back. Riding atop a bear shaped saddle you enjoy the journey back to hiveFf the journey home.You are just entering the hive entrance when a ear splitting roar emerges from the queen chamber. Grimalkin is awake. And she sounds HUNGRY.> offer bear> send minion drones/warrior to get a few cows
>>1043323>send minion drones/warrior to get a few cows
>>1043323> send minion drones/warrior to get a few cows
>>1043323>offer bearit's dead, not like we can use it for a host or anything so might as well give it to the big boss.
>>1043323> offer bearMake big mama proud.
> tied up so why not both?You quickly have ox fling the bears corpse into the egg chamber. Grimalkin tears into it with a desperate hunger. Youve bought some time. You quickly send the 2minion drones amd young warrior off to the Abel farm to retrieve some cows before Grimalkin eats one of you.> you can assign minion drones to hunt or scout or defend/improve the hive. They can only have 1 task at a time.
>>1043361so other then grim, ox, bob, twitch, and I guess the three drones we just sent to get more food how many drones do we have again?
>>1043361Let's scout out the hunting grounds we just gained, there's got to be something else there.
>>1043361We should send drones to hunt the eastern region until Grim's hunger is satiated.
>>1043366You have Grimalkin and 6 hivemembers and 1 idle drone egg. You have 1 healthy human host.
>>1043376Oh well let's also get that drone egg all up inside that human man.
>>1043376>>1043381Agreed, no reason to let it sit unused
>>1043376and three are cow herding. leaving bob, twitch, and ox. Well since bob has probably been working himself to death might as well have him rest here and "guard" the cave while Ox and Twitch check out the last spot in the south so we can have an idea on what is around our home base. Grim can wait for the other three to come back with the cows so she can tear into them right away.
Also does what we eat determine how strong the next form is?
>>1043391we primal zerg now
> put last egg to useYou dart into the queen chamber, grabbing the last egg and darting back before Grimalkin spots you. Setting the precious object before the human host the favehugger happily springs out, glad to have a host to call its own. You sit around to make sure implantation goes smoothly and the human is properly secured. You finish up just as the Minions and lone warrior return dragging one large cow each. Maybe this wont be so bad.You quickly have Ox fling 2 of the cows into the queen chamber, listening to the contented munches and slurps. She seems to be better now. You and ox take a bried break to rest and enjoy some well deserved cow while Grimalkin gets her mind together. Orders for minions?2 drones, 1 warrior> hunt eastern zone> release and drive cattle toward hive> assist Bob > guard hive> scout.
>>1043400>> release and drive cattle toward hive
>>1043391Not so far as I am aware, no. There's a couple branches in each 'evolution', specializations like Twitch, who was originally a Runner but became a Hunter, and Ox who can become a Brute and then a Titan.> Release and drive cattle toward the hive.> Stay on duty, keep the herd safe from any other predators.
>>1043400twitch> scout.Ox> guard hive3 spare drones plus slave driver bob>release and drive cattle toward hive.
>>1043410Shit, forgot to link back.>>1043400
>>1043410Second.Also I don't know much about Xenomorph biology but...Who's the unlucky soul that has to impregnate the Queen?
>>1043391Not really. Its more fuel than catalyst. The food fuels the mutations but it doesnt cause them. You guys are perfectly free to put forth mutation ideas and as long as they progress cleanly and dont just pop out randomly ill accept them :)
>>1043420I thought they were productive the moment they became Queens?If it does require the dirty deed, I would say Twitch, just because he's clever and deadly, both admirable traits in a Xeno.
>>1043426so if we somehow found a bird big enough to be a host we could get flying aliens?
>>1043420Asexual reproduction m8
>>1043426So if we got a big ass bird, like a Condor or an Eagle, and implanted an embryo in that, would the Xenomorph that pops out have wings?
>>1043426I would like a flying Xenomorph, shits cool
>>1043439Yup. Dont exclude anything :D
>>1043446Fiss?Predator Quest callback.
>>1043446I like this, it gives us ideas.If we're lucky enough we might even find an Emu.
>>1043426I would say that, for the final stages of the Hunter, we could get venom, acid spray, or maybe even the ability to launch spines or quills. Enhanced senses, even beyond his kin, seems obligatory given his station/caste.For Ox, he could get a second pair of limbs or a second tail, long curving tusks, and maybe an ability to launch huge globs/leugies of acid.The Drones could become perfectly adapted to working with soil, and can burrow quickly through even tough rock. They might also become, basically, a living communication array, using a mix of pheromones, vibrations and high-frequency sound waves to keep the hive connected across long ranges.>>1043450I thought the xenos were already able to breathe underwater? Or maybe they just have a large lung capacity combined with an efficient respiratory system.
Yes I approve of this xenomorph flier idea.
>>1043454I like the idea of Ox getting bigger tusks, but I think that should be about it. Obviously he should get bigger tougher too, but spitting globs of Acid seems a stretch.
> scout, guard hive, xeno cowboy?You sit up from your meal. Grimalkin wants you to scout some more. Ox immediately returns to his post at the entrance and plonks down like an armored boulder with chronic laziness. Bob steps out of the hive for possibly the first time in his life and sets off toward the farm with the minions and a warrior escort. What direction do you go?North-colonyeast-eastern hunting groundsWest-Abel FarmsSouth-???
>>1043454http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Predator+questJust a reference to some threads in it that were hilarious.
>>1043464Man I miss that quest, it was so fun.>>1043463South-???
>>1043463Let's go South, without Ox we can be sneaky sneak.OH SHIT WHAT IF WE FIND AN ANACONDA?!
>>1043461A living battering ram would be nice.Good for getting into barricaded human shelters.A harder head carapace (or maybe some bull horns too) would do the trick.
>>1043470And he Moo's occasionally to blend in with the other giant black shiny cows.
>>1043454You. I like your ideas.
>>1043470>A living battering ram would be nice.isn't that literally the crusher xenomorph from colonial marines?
> head southYou leap out of the hive entrance, bouncing off of Ox's thick shell. Youre gonna go find something good. You just know it.

If you have any suggestions or ideas just leave em here and ill read them when I get up.
>>1043619Thanks for running, really enjoying it so far.
>>1043619Swiggity swoo, nice quest man.
Does anyone have addititional ideas for mutations for Twitch? I'm against anything that would make him slower/less stealthy.How about some strobe flashlight on his tail to disorient enemies? Adaptive camouflage on his skin? A hallucinogenic breath weapon? An additional, weak but dextrous pair of arms to make tool use possible?
>>1043891Any mutations (within reason) that you guys can suggest will go into the mutation list im working on. Ill post it at the beginning of each new thread after the stat list
>tfw no predquest
>>1043891Some "empty" space inside of him where he can put facehuggers or other items, to carry them easily.
>>1043921so what's your feelings on the husk and boiler xenomorphs?The husk ones from what I remember from colonial marines were the pale white ones that were blind and only reacted to sounds which they would then close in on and if they found it tear it limb from limb. Also really hard to kill making them decent watchdogs.The boiler xenomorph was basically a suicide bomber that ran up to a group of enemies then exploded in a huge shower of gore and coated everything around it with his acid blood. Think a giant water ballon... but instead of water it's full of death.
>>1043938I really like this idea. He can the the Queen's Prince. Drop facehuggers and eggs places we can't stealth to.
>>1043998you mean like the carrier from the Alien vs predator games? Basically just a big ass alien that carried a bunch of face huggers on it's back and the gas propelled launches them at enemies.
>>1043944If you guys can agree on the mutations then I have no issue :). Husks and boilers sound metal as hell desu
>>1044010Not so much that as he can pretty much be us from the start of the quest.Two eggs in a chest cavity.He stealths into a big house, resins up the owners and leaves eggs there.Twitch turns the house into a mini nest then comes back.
Mutation list-(These are just my pre-built options, im open to new suggestions)You can mutate to support 2 new upgrades per body typeBody type is your "class". Each class comes with standard mutation upgrades (hp increases, increased damage, etc)Upgrades/mutations are PERMANENT until the Hive Architect is created. Then Advanced Mutation choices and Advanced construction will be possible.Runner-6HP0 Armor+Extremely fast (+1 to Ambush and evasion rolls)+Naturally stealthy (+1 to stealth rolls)+Enhanced tracking (+1 to tracking rolls-physically weak (cannot overpower adult humans without ambushing)Runners can evolve into Hunter or Drones (or you offer a new class and a stat choice from the finished list, must include positive and negative stats)Hunter-8hp+Extremely fast (+1 to ambush and evasion rolls)+Enhanced combat ability+Naturally stealthy (+1 to personall stealth rolls)+Terrifying (civilian humans WILL panic in close quarters)-average strength (can overpower human civilians and medium animals)+Enhanced tracking ability (+1 to tracking rolls)My prebuilts for the Hunter are the Shadow and Slasher but again, you can offer other classes and either you can offer a stat list or I can put one together for that class.Shadow-8hp+Complete stealth (+3 to stealth rolls)+Ambush hunter (+2 to ambush rolls)+Infiltration expert (can enter and exit secure locations easily unless the inhabitants are aware of your presence)-average strength (civilan humans and medium animals can be overpowered)-soft skinned (takes +1 damage in combat)Slasher-10hp+Extremely Fast (+2 to ambush and evasion rolls)+Combat Expert (+2 to combat rolls)+Terrifying (will cause civilian humans to panic)+Piercing blades (can easily penetrate body armor and helmets)-Bulky blades (-1 to stealth rolls)-Average strengthDrone-8hp+Physically strong (can subdue trained humans from ambush or in combat)+Stealthy (+1 to stealth rolls)+Hive construction (can improve the hive and create hive structures)-Group thinkers (lose intelligence when alone/cut off from hive)Drones can mutate into Warriors or Builders.Builder-10hp+Advanced construction (hive improvements progress faster)+physically strong+Enhanced resin (resin is stronger than normal. Provides more reinforcement)+multi Limbed (multiple arms increase efficiency and work speed)-Defensive combat(-2 to combat rolls outside the hive. +2 Inside it) Warriors-10hp3pts armor+Enhanced combat ability (+1 to combat rolls)+Physically strong+Stealthy-Group thinkersBuilders can mutate into Hive architects and warriors are perhaps the most mutate-able besides drones.Ill post a complete mutation list in the next thread :)
>>1044031Could you put that in a pastebin?
>>1044041I suppose lol. Never used pastebin before
>>1044050I use google docs personally. Just because I already had my homebrew stuff ont here, but it's also an option.
>>1044050Yeah just somewhere so we can have a quick browse whenever
>>1043944we aren't going to make our baby's suicide themselves.first we make flying ones. then we make them into giant bioships so we can go to other planets
http://pastebin.com/PGTyvDG7 heres the 1st draft of the pastebin.Ill tinker on it some more tonight but I think it gives you guys and idea of the possible stat choices :)
is it possible to make a mutation in the eggs we make to have them hach to baby's?
>>1044195That seems to go against our parasitic nature but ill go with allowing mutations to cause double chestbursters from each implantation.
>>1044219To prevent it being OP, why don't we make it give two weaker drones, ormake it a 1 in 10 chance or something.Like the egg is a different type giving 2 scout types or two drones only.idk just seems like we'll always implant twins if possible.
>>1044219if it was a thing i could see how when they grow up they start out way smaller and weakerlike a tiny cat really.could have a cool evo line though
>>1044227How about...The egg has to be altered by the Hive ArchitectIt produces a weaker drone or runner pairThey have a longer incubation time
I wonder what Ox would look like if he became a brute.
I wonder if we could keep a titan still and have him buried under foliage outside the nest. How would colonial marines react when the hill they're climbing stands up.
>>1044269With Ox's personality he very well could be mistaken for a hill while he remains still as a Titan
>>1044249stilltwo for the price of oneeven if we have to wait a bit longer for them to grow big and strong and murdery
>>1044280I like the OX emergence plan.Hill actually being giant ancient dragon/beatsie has become a bit of trope in my DMing though
>>1044280can we make him bigger than a titan?a.... colossus maby?
>>1044288Oooooohhhhh We have to go bigger!
>>1044297> Colonial marine Battlecruise opens fire on enormous mountain over xeno hive. > "FIRE EVERYTHING"> Barrage lasts hours. Nothing could possibly survive> Ox turned a little so they could scratch the itch on his back while they were at it.> LaughingXenos.jpg
>>1044340"NUKE IT FROM ORBIT ONLY WAY TO BE SURE"[i]2 hours later[/i]Seismograms pick up a burp of galactic levels as Ox wakes up.
>>1043932Don't worry anon, I'm considering running one.
>>1044541PLEASEmaby a marine one if any one is good with horror
>>1044020We'll seeing how big the eggs are I think it would take a much larger xeno then twitch to actually be able to hide two eggs on their person
Ho boy, if Ox ever actually reaches Titan/Colossus size, he'll have to hunt whales and other huge sea creatures in order to feed himself. I guess we better get started on teaching our boy how to swim.Also, for the option/mutation/upgrade to carry eggs, it might just be easier to have a pouch designed for carrying just the facehuggers.

>>1045735>That amour bonusNice
Grimalkin stands head and shoulders above even the lone warrior your hive posseses (shes around 10ft tall). An ornate crest of iron hard chitin guards her head and neck while her torse, back and tail are encased in overlapping chitin plates. Her tail is a wicked spike over two feet long and her claws could rend metal as easily as flesh. She has become a symbol of a hive's might. A Praetorian. She swivels her massive head to regard you as you fidget in place. Pride radiiating from her as she congratulates you for your efforts. You have done well to learn of the immediate area around your hive. >you are?> Twitch> Bob> Ox> Grimalkin> Warrior (Needs a name)

>>1046591>present them to Grimalkin to gain gain favorask before we eat one of them, or ask for a cow.
>>1046591Changing my vote too handing them too Bob
I really do think we should make the herd a permanent addition to the Hive. Having a stable source of meat and hosts will be invaluable, and the cows are docile enough that the will grow accustomed to the presence of the Xenos.If we continue exploring and discover other farms and ranches, we can bring home more cattle, maybe allow them to breed so the herd isn't terribly depleted by the Hive's needs.
>>1046655I'm for this.
> Gift to GrimalkinYou have very rarely wanted to kill something as much as you do right noe. These humans have not shut up the entire walk back to the hive. A chorus of "Dude"'s sounds every time they see a member of your hive. You are sorely tempted to offer one of them to the recuperating twitch but you know grimalkin needs the food more to become a queen. You drag the humans into the egg chamber, they seem shocked into silence (finally) by the ancient mummified corpse of the old queen. You snap your tail free of the resin and bow your head low as you present them to your Praetorian. She strides over, her ornate head crest dipping low as she inspects them. A faint feeling of pride energes from her as she congratulates you for your successfull "hunt". You bow your head again and retreat from the chamber as she begins to feed. Screams of terror and "bad trip dude!" Are music to your ears.What do? > go snag a cow, youve earned it> go take a nap, youve also earned it> cuddle pile with Twitch. He earned it.> Switch character?

Guys I've figured out a good path for Tiny's evolution, hear me out.He never gets to be as large as the other Warriors, but over time his tail splits into two, maybe three mean ass lookin' jagged spears of doom.
>>1046698> Cuddle pile with Twitch.> Switch to Warrior. Name him Khan for a guy, Bellona for a girl.The Warrior is probably itching for some action too. Maybe we can have him/her protect the herd from predators and maybe investigate some humans.>>1046756I'm thinking that he/she will be a balance between ninja Twitch and giant Ox. Maybe a few perks towards leadership, being the first and strongest of the Warrior Caste.
>>1046756That reminds me of the Lurker from Dead Space.
>>1046766Yeah gotta give the guy some sort of special perk for being the first warrior.Maybe even becoming a "Warrior Elder/General" down the line when there are other warriors around.
> Warrior is now Tiny!> snag some beef, share with Twitch, engage cuddlesYou search the food pile in the hives storeroom, resin coated dogs and rodents tossed aside. You want substance! You send a mental image too a nearby minion and he rushes to do your bidding. You make your way to your resting companion and curl around him, your tail protectively curling around his small frame. Your food arrives a short time later. The minion rapidly dragging you a freshly killed young bull. You prod twitch awake and you both tear into the meal happily, growls of contentment coming from you both.> be Tiny> Be GrimalkinOther

>>1046822That's a lotta' tails!
>>1046800> Be Tiny.Kek. If he/she becomes the second largest member of the Hive, I will laugh.Ox doesn't count, seeing as he is less of a creature and more of a living siege engine.>>1046756There's also the ability to regenerate. That's hella useful in thick combat, or a berserker rage that makes him/her immune to pain or shock. Poisonous or acidic projectiles, like quills or even just globs of spit, would be good too. Of course, there's also spiky, bladed exoskeleton to consider.If we go full Xeno General route, the ability to produce pheromones that drive the other Xenos into a rampage, or instill unnatural terror in humans and beasts, would be cool. Plus, gotta be able to keep communication and order among the troops, so a way to keep the horde together is important.As for the trident-tail, it sounds fine, but we'd have to be careful not to get it caught in anything. If we just turn the end of the tail into a fan of quills or launchable spikes, we can have a ranged attack. But then, we probably wouldn't be able to use the tail as a prehensile tool.
>>1046857What about a tail that can fold into itself to look like a single tail when out of combat, and when in combat we can separate it into the trident tail?Also regeneration sounds dope, and the razor body too. Maybe have the razors be retractable so we're not catching ourselves on everything all the time.
>>1046870The spines on the body could be just like a porcupines, laying flat against the body when relaxed, but bristling up when agitated or angry.

> remove doggoYou remember the scrawny wild dogs that have been occassionally harassing your cattle. A decent group, around 8, led by a large Alpha male.

>>1047610> Use Inner jaws, munch his headmeat
> use inner jaw, nom tasty brain meatYou slowly bring your maw closer to the Alphas head. He snarls and snaps weakly, blood pouring from his jaws. You clamp your claws onto his head and angke it perfectly for your victory strike. With a wet CRUNCH and some heavy twitching your inner jaw punches into his brain. You spend a few minutes emptying his skull and savoring the tissue. When you look around again the two Mutts are long gone. > congratulations! You have eliminated the Alpha of the badlands! Your herd is safe! Tiny has earned the "Battle Scarred" Trait earning him +1 armor> you have 6 dog corpses and are heavily wounded> Return to hive> EAT DOGGO (recover hp and armor, -2 dog corpses)> GORGE (trigger mutation, ill make Tiny have a UNIQUE mutation)

>>1047673>GORGESo are we going for the Multi-Tail route or what?
There was a Xenomorph quest that ran a few months back, in it the Hive xenos learned to be extra spooky, too the point of being able to talk and lay ambush by calling out the marines.You haven't known true terror until you hear a xenomorph yelling "I see you, cunt" before it leaps at you.
>>1047722I miss that quest ;-;
> GORGE THYSELFFuck sharing. You just got gnawes on. Youre gonna eat and its gonna be so fucking good. You statt tossing dog corpses into the cave, making a nice pile in the back, you sling the alphas corpse over your shoulder and head in. You barely know where to start so you just dive in, trying to fill the void in your stomach. Is this how ox feels ALL the time??Tiny-Alpha Warrior (Unique)12hp6 armor+physically strong+stealthy+Capable leader (+1 to rolls involving 1 or more other xenos)+Commando (+1 to any roll while alone)+Multi pronged tail (can strike 3 close range enemies for medium damage or one for high damage+stealthy+Battle scarred-HATES DOGS-Reckless-little man syndrome (automatically attacks largest enemy in combat)

>>1047767missed a want somewhere, I kinda want to see a pov.
>>1047764NO! He's awesome and cool!
>>1047753 Tiny strolls into human fort Bunch of shithead Colonial Marines. "Hey guys, like at this tiny prick!" "FOOKIN' HELL DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY DICK YOU GINGER FAGGOT?!" Rip and tear ensues. Said ginger faggot ends up screaming on the end of his tail. "YOU SOUND JUST LIKE YOUR MOTHER!"

>>1047782>tiny botches his rolls and gets clubbed nearly to death by a group of irate CMs with folding chairs
In my opinion, we should probably get moving. We should remove every trace of our existence and retreat into the forest and turn Grimalkin into a queen there. Otherwise she will be immobile close to a (former) human settlement. Probably in a few days humans will come look for their missing ones and we don't want to be stuck in the area then.
>>1048196Your hive is located in the "wasteland" and is several hours travel from the human colony. The closest settlement is Abel farms which you have secured. Your chances of accidental discovery are extremely low.
>>1048494>>1048196But, surely some day will ask questions what happened to the people we killed.I as a former Shadowrun player remain paranoid.
>>1048534well then think like the shadows and use misdirection. If we can find some more doggos we can beat them to a pulp without stabbing them or ripping them apart with our fangs, claws, and tail. Dump a bunch of the bodies around the farm and find pitchforks and crap to stab the dead doggos to make it look like the farm was invaded by a large pack of doggos. Start the fire to make it seem someone left the stove on or something before the doggos attacked and after awhile it caught the house on fire. Could also make some false trails lead away from our home cave to throw off anyone who wants to look deeper into it.
>>1047722Fuck I loved that quest. I know I cant make a truly epic quest seeing as this is my first one ever and im doing this all from my phone and some physical notes.my Qm skills will improve with time I promise.
>>1048592That's the spirit!
btw, can we trigger the queen evolution only partially? With say only 10% of the egg-laying capability but with 90% of the remaining mobility? That would greatly increase Grimalkin's worth. We could lay a few eggs but still move around.
>>1048662next thread when?>>1049132>Not going for Multiqueen and Multi-lair approach>Having a huge quantity of Drones and warriors to swarm a huge part of the colony.
http://pastebin.com/PGTyvDG7 updated pastebin with new stats for our Unique units, new mutation options and body types explained!Next thread will be around in 2-3 hours. Ill post here when its up!
>>1049132Queens can detach and create those bigass eggsac things on their ass-ends at will. Mobility isn't an issue. She can pack up and leave literally whenever she wanted. Albeit, it would hurt. But if you are comfortable and confident enough to create the eggsac in the first place you won't need to move often, you'll have an entire hive to get shit done for you.Also a Queen would draw a fuckload of attention if it was ever seen moving around, so going out and doing things is far more risky to do with a queen.
>>1044541DO IT. PLS ANON
>>1049534Shit ok Xeno sama, I'll work on it. I was on the fence about it but I'll get some quick notes written up and run in a day or two maybe
