to start, this is from the villains perspective. welcome to the prelude to what I'm running in the winter, I hope you all enjoy.It has been several years since you've risen as a tycoon here in wretched Florida. how long have you had to endure the abhorrent populous? will it matter soon? If all in this next week goes well, you won't have to be here any longer than few simple business transactions. It brings a smile to your face knowing you'll be free from half the plebeians that make up the bulk of the city your gorgeous office tower makes up. It'll be a shame when you liquidate the assets inside, but well worth it. Who needs an vulnerable office when you'll be running some of the most complicated medical laboratories on the planet? After a quick check of the time and an adjustment of your suit, you begin to get up to leave before your secretary pokes her head through your door.[I]Mi-mister Rienholt, just reminding you of your appointment at two o'clock, for the buyout of CellMed Labs.[/I]It's impossible not to smile, it's so cute when they try and remind you of things your already know. You've been preparing to buy out this Gentek subsidiary for months, even spreading a nasty rumor of bioweapon development to lower their prices. (although with that new York incident months back it wouldn't be surprising. considering your own plans.)>bring the secretary along.>head to the meeting immediately.>do some "micromanagement" first.
some ground rules. i'll be using d20's. if you want to pick up a Waifu please don't derail the thread in the pursuit, do so or act too cringy and i'll separate the character from it and have it killed horrifically. I've seen what you Anons sometimes do and i'd like to avoid those lolrandumb moments. also there wont be a morality or sanity meter on this round, your the villain.
Head to the meeting.Fyi qst can be a pretty dead board don't expect too much activity till you get a following
Rolled 3 (1d20)You make your way down to the limo, your Assets know damn well what they're doing and will be effective unless they want to meet the cleaners.All those months have lead you to this simple little office out on the coast. quant, but it should be enough, you can't exactly talk business where some random employee can eavesdrop. you take a seat across from one rather well dressed man flanked by two guards. with a snap of your fingers your personal butler who've you've worked with for over two decades comes in and brings a pair of glasses and fine imported wine.
"Save the pleasantries, Rienholt" the man sneers. oh joy, it appears, you won't be having an easy time with this one."why I insist.""no, but like certain types of gossip, alcohol is poison."Grand, they know your behind the stories of their involvement in bioweapons, and don't seem very happy you'll be taking it off their hands either.>feign ignorance.>cut to your offer. (lowball, mid range offer, or very generous.)>try and convince him your purchase would look better for their parent company on the whole.
>>1445212What a coincidence OP, I was actually tossing the idea of making a prototype quest in my head.Cheers, hope you have a good and long lasting run.
>>1445340why thank you kindly.
>>1445345This is a prequel correct?We start as an amnesiac depending on choices in the winter version of this quest?also>try and convince him your purchase would look better for their parent company on the whole.
>>1445367you start as a normal man, this prequel will determine how things start, but one way or another a groups going to come to power and redzone will be created, the goal here is to become the one on top of that mound of blacklight. going to wait for another vote.
alrighty then."why that seems harsh, what ever have I done?""Shove it you viper.""now where is that going to get us, consider what benefit exist to taking my deal, it would look a lot better for GenTek.""Your angle is obvious, your trying to corner us into selling!""i'm not making you do anything of the sort, however, it would be a shame not to capitalize on the situation, mister?""Alexander, and forget it."give me a 1d20+2 if you can give a persuasive argument for why it would look good or how selling could capitalize on the recent bad publicity.
come on anons, you should know how dice work. best of three, or two.

12 mild success.Alexander begins to think it over. "You have us in between a rock and a hard place, I will give you that."you crack a smile. "oh, it's a little worse than that, now why don't we skip the pleasantries""you son of a bitch. . . make your offer." >lowball>middleground>generous offer
>>1445560>generous offerThe labs will more than pay it back, in due time.
Rolled 18, 1 = 19 (2d20)you make an extremely generous offer considering the worth of the company with it's less than pleasant controversy. almost immediately it's met with a rise in the selling price until you remind him that all the lab equipment is only worth half of the three million dolor offer you made."so do we have a deal?"Alexander raises a hand to his ear. "proceed with the transaction."
18 success1 critical failureeverything seems to go well, a stack of papers exchange hands and signatures are passed between the two of you, everything is about wrapped up when alexander jolts back and returns his hand to his ear. "Repeat that!""is there a proble-""Quiet!"well this was unexpected, alexander gets up and barks an order to his men. "detain him."your butler responds pre-emptively, tossing a dart into the neck of one of the gaurds and wrestling him to the ground. you draw your own tranq pistol to deal with the second.roll 20 anons.

Rolled 15 (1d20)>>1445595Time to out edge Alex
you put two darts into the unprotected sleeve of the brute as you begin to stand up, once he reaches you mid attempted tackle you push him back and then turn your weapon on Alexander. "how dare you-" is all he can say before taking a pair of darts himself.you turn towards your servent. "I want them in their vehicle on the I-95. they won't make it to their destination."after this you gather up the papers and pick up your cell. someone fucked up, you want to know who and why.who do you question.>Alexis: your infiltrator.>Francis: your hacker.>Shin: your insider.

sorry this is taking a while, technical difficulties and the write up I just finish is now lost.
you call Shin. as your phone rings. . it rings . . and it keeps ringing. god damn-"Rienholt this is not a good time at all.""no it isn't, something went wrong and-""they have the entire building under lockdown and are wiping the server room, your code monkey just tried accessing the Fleshlight files."". . . . . the what?""the fleshlight files""are you saying that my IT expert just nearly fucked everything up because he wanted to look at a file about sextoys?""the files on pen station, blackwatch the entire mess in New York that killed hundreds of thousands.""and they named it. oh god damnit."
"we need those files Shin. you better have a solution.""the paper files are still locked away, we can get your saboteur in there, but if she's caught we're done for and all the effort was for nothing.""Just have her do it Shin."you take a deep breath, all you can do now is submit these papers, and hope your agent doesn't blow her cover.>switch to Alexis's perspective.>timeskip (risk of getting into a shadow war with blackwatch.)
>>1445725>switch to Alexis's perspective.So we're gonna be a sociopathic business man? I dig it. Make Blacklight great again.....now that I think about it that sounds bad
>>1445725>>switch to Alexis's perspective.
you are now Alexis.that fucking techie managed to cock everything up, you made it to the server room just fine and now you have shin telling you to loot a safe room for a bunch of files labeled "fleshlight." you swear if your boss has you doing this for something to stick his prick into your gonna cut it off.now how to get to the safe room.>Navigate the hallways.>through the ventilation.>try to knock out and steal a guards uniform.>Write-in.
>>1445789>through the ventilation.
you decide to take the Cruz/Willis method and get into the vents, after taking out and putting the cover back on, you begin to crawl up and make your way over to the files room, you can already hear the sound of heavy boots marching up and down the hallways.roll me those 20s.

Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1445841
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>1445841
19!You quickly crawl over several guards, employees, even making it past a small vehicle bay. one thing you notice is that as you get closer to the secure safe room, the guards seem to have swapped out their standard uniform for black full body armor and rifles. huh. eventually you get over to the hallway where the safe is, but the vent that goes into the safe isn't something you can unscrew and crawl through. and there are two Guards. . oh fuck that, these are soldiers with rifles.>try and incapacitate the troopers.>figure a way to get out of the vent and into the room without going to ground.>this was a bad idea, steal a badge and a uniform.

You roll over to your back, and start cutting into the sheet metal of the vent shaft above you, and find that on the other side is drywall. you have to stifle a laugh.a few moments later after some digging your standing in a space in the ceiling, and begin to dig into the drywall towards the safe.roll me another 20. if you crit fail, the gaurds are alerted. fail and you hit concrete, gotta beat a roll of 12.

you dig a short way through your hole before your drywall digging drops a couple of bolts to drop down onto the vent. the loud clang causes a two guards to look up when the vent gives way.(do vents always give way in every quest on this board?)the guards have their rifles pointed at you, bayonets fixed.>fight>flight

Rolled 20 (1d20)11 mild success.you manage to raise your pistol to the soldier on the left and fire a round that goes through the eye of his mask, a brief squirt of crimson says all you need to know. the other soldier however lunges at you. as you fall back, the bayonet thrust leaves a gash in your leg along the thigh.ignore the roll.
with one soldier silent in death and the other focused on you, nobody radios. you hear over your earpiece that camera's have been shut down around the facility. that would have been nice to know an hour ago, it would save you the heart attack.roll 20 for the last guard.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>1446226
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>1446226Hey E88, what time does this take place?
>>1446284several months after the end of prototype 2. after this operation we fast forward to December 2015 and prepare for the full quest.you put two rounds into both eye sockets. the heavily armored soldier slumps right down. how fortunate.now it's just you, two empty bodies with the keys, a wounded leg, and a safe with files on a male masturbation device.you pull the key cards off of the soldier who you shot first. and walk over to the lock mechanism. . . and it's a retinal scanner. maybe it will work with one eye? you begin to drag over the corpse that you didn't completely destroy the eyes of and slap him onto the consol. to your surprise the safe opens.
Rolled 20 (1d20)you are quite surprised when the safe hisses open.
It seems fleshlight wasn't just a bunch of files. but rather the whole room is a collection of salvaged materials from NYZ. infected civilians are kept in a suspended state, a severed arm rest inside a glass container, and there's even several vials kept behind bullet proof glassing and thick metal bars. safety deposit boxes line a single wall, files are kept in a clear alphabetical order, until you go past Z and 0, where your greeted with odd symbols rather than anything else identifiable.>radio in.>you came for files, not some kinda sick and twisted medical eldritch horror show. get them and get out!>why not have a little fun in here. see if you can get into something.>just leave, it's too much, you don't care what Rienholt does.
>>1446308Got it, so Mercer's dead but James is around and->>1446320Jesus Christ man leave some 20s for us why don't you
>>1446353>you came for files, not some kinda sick and twisted medical eldritch horror show. get them and get out!
>>1446353>radio in."Hey you want me to just grab the vials along with the files? Yes? No?"
i'm rolling in five minutes if anons don't decide.
>>1446353>>radio in.What exactly am Iooking for here boss?
you begin to radio in to Rienholt."R-Rienholt. what exactly is this fleshlight i'm supposed to be looking for?"". . .what did you find?""it-it's hard to explain, but, oh my. it looks like I'm in a museum for the NYZ outbreak.""really now? turn on your camera and have Francis patch me through. I want to see this for myself." "yes sir"
the camera turn on and a moment later your holding it out for Rienholt to see. he sounds amazed at all the curiosities that fill the safe. an exclamation of "my god" when he see's the clawed, inhuman arm in the case and a brief fit of laughter when he see's the vials. DX-1121, DX-1134, DX-1135, and the one with additional secrutiy marked DX-1200/PRIH. "my god Alexis, this is what I've been waiting for!""er, really?""yes! get the fleshlight files, if you can't get the vials that is fine, but try! oh, gods damned, I have to go. hurry!"you turn off the cam, and then turn towards the vials.>well you have your orders.>get the files and leave.>who cares about a bunch of papers, get the vials! its clearly what he wants.
>>1446465>>well you have your orders.I'm sure we could get both
>>1446465>well you have your orders.E88 I have a suggestion, stop using fleshlight before someone shows an image you may not like.But in all seriousness. GET EVERYTHING
>>1446465>well you have your orders.
>>1446497well now I just have to download that body parts gun image I saw on /k/ a few nights ago just to post it here.as the good master requested you shall obey. you begin by going over to the file boxes and picking the locks, you gather up all the files in the F section which actually comprised most of the wall, discarding anything irrelevant like field reports. in the end you have one bag full and another half way with some room to put the vials in.well now, what to do about all this security glass and the bars. below them is a console, as well as a port that you can plug your phone into, if you had the right funny looking cable, one of the dead guards might have one. theres also the option of brute forcing it, but there isn't a way of telling how to get in there, maybe your wrist are skinny enough?>try your luck with the controls.>see if one of the bodies has the right wire, then let Francis have a go at it.>screw security just break that shit and squeeze your arm through.
>>1446546>>try your luck with the controls.Be the crane
>>1446546>try your luck with the controls.Breaking the glass is stupid but we also don't have time to loot dead bodies. Even though our gun is silenced we had a scuffle that left two dead bodies and a wounded leg on our part, we have to get out of here fast.
you head up to the controls and. . . what the ever loving fuck is this?on the panel there are keys for what looks like an upside down F with a row of spikes along the back, and a series of 9's lock in a circle together. and the hell is this squiggly line?roll 20.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>1446585
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>1446585
after a moment of pressing the squiggly line and the upside down turtle looking key, the glass comes up, but now you have the metal bars.>stick your arms through and get the vials? (can drop them, effects will be unknown.)>try the controls for the bars. DC15.

Rolled 7 (1d20)>>1446650>try the controls for the bars. DC15.Come on Jesus, Allah, Krishna, whichever god wants to help throw something in for us.
the bars come up and now you have all the four standard vials in the bag, that was easy enough. who knew that the sixty-nine position monkeys key and the red dot in a triangle would be the right keys to press? all that's left is the ominously squirming contents of the DX-1200/PRIH vial. . . should you really?>yup, those are your orders. (creates hard mode when main quest starts.)>no, no way, it's even squirming inside the vial. there is no way I'm handling that fucking shit, not even for Rienholt.
>>1446680What do you mean by hard mode?
>>1446683I mean the DC for most stuff is around 10. hard mode your gonna need 15's and bonuses when fighting some really supped up brawlers and shit, on the other end, if you go hard mode, the story will get really, really involved, and might even leave Florida.

>>1446680>yup, those are your orders. (creates hard mode when main quest starts.)Let's do this
it was easier getting this than it was the others, just had to pick two locks at once, and using your teeth was the real trick. once that was done a trick with a pocket mirror got you in.you grab the vial, eww, why the hell does that rich bastard want this? you put the squirming thing into the bag with the others, glad that Gentek makes such weird high tech containers for squirming eldritch abominations.as you head outside of the safe you radio in. "ok, mission accomplished, I have the files and the vials, can I please get the hell out of here?" "yes, just a moment the mercenaries our employer contracted should be attacking the south side of the building right about."that's when you hear the shout of "Allahu Ackbar" and an explosion. great, his escape plan was a fake terrorist attack."now, get out and follow the swamp, there will be a cabin when the river meets a fork. stay there and before the lockdown is over a hover craft will come for you.""roger, see you later Francis, I hope."______________________________

>>1446786caught that didn't ya?December 5, 2015.Rienholts office.it has been years, years of examining and dissecting the vile things in the vials that Alexis has brought you. amazing work she did, it was only fitting to give her a position as your "personal assistant." it almost did make you reconsider when she insisted keeping that spineless worm Francis alive. no mater now, year later and you finally have some idea what those vials contained. while the nightmare of NYZ went on, these viral cultures were doing very interesting things. one had evolved to become a type of armored mold. you've never seen anything like it. of course the laboratory was a little dismayed to have burnt so many samples, and do away with others, but why worry when more can be made. others spread like the plague, becoming those giant wall coverings of meat that had occupied so much of the red zone, interestingly, a few of these were building up spores. the Gentek scientist who wrote the reports you received were particularly worried about the spores that were developing in these sacks. a giant pustule erupting and spreading a virus so deadly to so many people in almost an instant, it would have been unthinkable. and finally the mutagen in vial 1121. oh how remarkable, to make a near cripple into an athlete, you would have injected yourself if you didn't see even greater potential with one asset you haven't found, DX-1118 F strain. you really want to know how this mutated out of the "evolved."
You've had Shin looking out for where this particular strain would be kept. and many years later to your surprise, it's coming to you.in 2014 Gentek and significant portion of blackwatch dissolved and their assets were sold, if not destroyed. some of their viral assets for instance are being moved to storage facilities. interestingly that same facility you had raided is being closed down and a new vault underneath the very city of Lauderdale is going to be housing a large number of these. you must remember to reward Shin for this later.for now you have an empire to run. as much fun as it was pumping out pills and making a fortune over the last couple years, it looks like this Trump fellow is going to bring an end to that. a pity but now would be the time to use your fortune to get into the private arms business, someone has to replace the crumbling blackwatch after all.>start focusing on making your super soldiers.>that Armor Mold strain, it would be amazing to make some tanks out of it, perhaps you should look into that.>if there was a way to control the spread of the DX-1135 strain, it would be invaluable as a bioweapon, perhaps the military would be interested in having an arsenal of that once more.

you begin revising employee contracts, and start looking for new hires, how fortunate that blackwatch has begun to crumble, you would have to be some kind of crazed sociopath to want to be injected with this stuff. it amazes you that so many lunatics were recruited into that organization, but then again, a useful lunatic is still useful at the end of the day.a week passes, and boy are the results coming in, so many new recruits and you only have the first four strains from the base culture developed. after so many years and now you get to finally put your efforts into motion. it just tickles you on the inside, although that's what the first subject said it felt like his injection was doing to him.roll me 1d20+4 four times to see what the DX-1121 does to each of these souls.

you announce that your ending all experiments to for the DX-1200 strain, this does raise some contention between your scientist, which makes recruiting them into a new department that much easier. you decide to make a habit of checking in on them every few months.after buying a lab for them to further the study of the strain you get back to examining what else to do with the rest of the strains. >See how many uses the DX-1134 has. armored buildings, more resistant tanks, maybe even something like sturdier tools.

Looks like ignoring the cult with a touch of subversion won. Will get to writing in a bit.
>>1448254BuenoSo what's the likelyhood of mass producing PRIH-strain super soldiers?
>>1448261Assuming that you can make ones that don't die on injection, go mad, or that you'll have control over what they do. Very unlikely.

>>1448270Think extremely fast regenerating brawlers covered in Juggernaut chiton what have claws that can actually damage a tank and pulls shit into it's biomass as it's killing it. Oh and it also looks like something slaneesh and nurgle made together and we're promptly disgusted by.

If they want to worship the object of their research, that's fine, as long as they don't let it get in the way of their "holy" purpose. Make sure the quotations are holy are there on the memo.
Ok, finally good to run, booting up PC and writing.
you don't really care one way or another what your scientist do or start in their free hours, as long as they are serving their purpose during their work hours. you do however take note to use their inclination towards worship to your advantage when possible.ah the results of their work. so far they haven't done much except some comparisons to the human genome, you don't really know what to make of it, you do take away that this material tends to rewrite itself and whatever is put in front of it, for instance when putting some human tissue in front of it a sample turned it into bone like spikes the first time, and in a follow up test made it a hard calcium like material.getting back to your need to acquire the DX-1118 samples, Shin and Francis have competing idea's. Shin believes that amid rising fears of the terrorist group known as isis crossing into the country from the border, it would be possible to stage a terrorist attack on the convoy delivering the samples to the Fort Lauderdale vault. Francis on the other hand claims this is too risky and can destroy the samples in the attempt to get them. Francis claims the best way to get it is with a hacking program he recently found the keys to on the dark web, in short, he can hijack the vehicle and drive it somewhere so it can be robbed. Alexis really doesn't have much of an opinion, she does however note how badly Francis screwed up the first time, and then teases Shin for being "a snitch.">Shin's plan, False flag and steal it.>Francis's plan, use his "missing CIA software" to jack the vehicle.
>>1448486>Francis's plan, use his "missing CIA software" to jack the vehicle.Tell both of them to shut up, they gotta learn to work with one another or else paycheck may contain Ricin
Rolled 5 (1d20)you take a deep breath, and tell them to knock it off before you ask one of them to lay down on a table in the research labs. then you question Francis a bit."are you sure you can turn the convoy vehicle into an RC car?""hey if the CIA can do it." you wonder why he keeps bringing up the CIA, they haven't been useful in years.Shin cuts in. "And if the truck is old enough that it doesn't make use of any kind of internal computer, how do you think your going to get the serum then.""it'll work I doubt that the Org they are sending to move the samples are going to be able to stop their own vehicle, or use such outdated equipment that it wouldn't even have a basic computer with steering and throttle adjust.""Francis were going with your plan."they all seem a little surprised as you begin to contact your mercenaries and start making the necessary arrangements, that being a garage to pull the vehicle into.______________________________________May 22, 2016Fort Lauderdale, Floridapardon the roll.
Rolled 5 (1d20)You have one problem right now, eyes on the convoy confirm they have tanks with MG's driving on both sides front and back of the transport vehicle.From a rooftop, Alexis has a complicated looking transmission device. it's very expensive equipment, but will be well worth it if it can do it's job.Shin on the ground radios in, the mercenaries in the kill bay are ready once the vehicle rolls in.Francis says he has the program ready to transmit, he just needs Alexis to aim him at the transport.it's an amazing display of competence you have to credit them all on that.Roll me a 1d20 to see if Francis can actually get into the computer. ignore my roll.

Alexis begins to move in on the tank, by the time she reaches the street level, one of the tanks is unable to fire the main gun. theres a group of marksmen in the back line, a good chance you'll be spotted if you go directly towards the cargo truck.roll 1d20 and beat 15.

Rolled 5 (1d20)
the garage door doesn't seem to want to come down. which presents a problem, as the mercenaries are only few in number, they can't hold off this onslaught for very long. Shin arrives at the cargo bay with a pair of your more trusted soldiers. who quickly join the fighting. "this is turning into a real shitshow Rienholt! if we don't get that door closed some idiot might shoot the truck and cause another pen station style incident.""why the fuck are you telling me, get that door closed, i'm not letting this all be for nothing!"roll me a 1d20+2 i'll make it a +4 bonus if you can come up with a way to get that garage closed.

September 2016.it's time for your injection, this first of many, but what may be by far the greatest, today you'll cast off that mortal coil, today you'll become a god! as was Zeus, as was Ares! its almost here.just five more minutes, the anticipation eats at you, Alexis in her wheel chair can't wait to see, she has the next scheduled injection. the very though of become evolved has made Shin elicit a genuine emotion, even if it was for a minute."the table has been prepped sir, please come on in."you make your way to the table, the toothed grin on your face shows your need to start this. the scientist ask you to take your place, and allow the restraints to auto lock. you comply.the anticipation damn near kills you as the machine with the syringe begins to fill up with the black and redish liquid. "remember to keep calm" they tell you. calm! your on the edge of divinity, calm would be insane!you take a deep breath, and give a slight laugh (read cackle) as the machine moves it's needle to your arm.
the pain, the pleasure, its just too much. it feels like your in torment in heaven, on ecstasy in hell! every nerve in your body is firing as it's destroyed and rebuilt. you look down to your arm, and the flesh seems to twist and meld with your blood rapidly, your entire arm seems to become a swimming mass of black and red tendrils and a sick cracking and reshaping of bone, and not even half a second later it looks how it once was. the sensation spreads, as you see your chest rise and fall, in strands of biomass. your senses go in and out, you cant see and then you can, you fail to hear the cries of "my god" and "holy shit" only to hear a high pitched wail of "is that normal?" you tries to cry out in the confusion of sensation but nothing is heard, the next moment your shout causes ears to be covered. this is all far to grand! its all too horrible! you can't stand the sheer overload of raw sensation! it's. . . too. . . . . . . much. ____________________________________He's passed out. your employer has fallen unconscious, but is still alive, after seeing his body do such horrid things no living creature should be able to do you aren't certain if this can even be called alive.

>>1448903Ohboy. Somebody fucking got legs.
the next several injections go over extremely well, Alexis was surprised to find her leg in the same condition as it was when she was injected, but after a moment of focus on it reformed the limb back to how it should look. for was in shock for a full minute. Shin goes up, and takes his injection with the most insane appearance of calm you've ever seen even Alexis screamed in agony, this chink son of a bitch just clenched his teeth and went with it. and finally there's Francis. cowardly, Francis. he really protested until the others talked him into it, and even you had to take a moment to get up and stretch your limbs, as well as the back of your hand upon the face of a doctor who insisted you rest. Rest is for the dead, you've been reborn. a simple palm on the boys shoulder and an utterance of "get on the table, trust me" is all it took to get that wet blanket into the operation room.not all of the QM rolls are going to be open or obvious, several events are still being determined in this quest, your actions have shaped them considerably. for instance I was expecting an RPG to hit and a new redzone to just develop then and there during the heist. nope, dice said no.
>>1448929Well i mean, We have that other virus right? We can totally create Redzones for you QM. Though, What happens to our tools/armor if exposed to these viruses?

"the fuck is all this?""a betting pool on the election, master rienholt.""I can hardly call it a betting pool, Francis is throwing his money away." Alexis chirps in."wait for it." quips Francis.you sigh. "does anyone know a damn thing about that group that attacked the convoy yet?""no, and sorry Francis but this was a stupid bet on your part." Shin replies.annoyed you shut off the TV and reassert the question. "we need to know who is that was, because now we have a target on our backs, we may be near gods now but our assets aren't something we can keep protected if the feds find out we were involved, so I ask again. why don't we know anything."once the initial groaning subsides Shin takes a moment to explain just why he can't find anything. "they had no logo, no symbol, and no recognized uniforms. even after consulting a DNA database for the blood spilled we had nothing. whoever these men were, they simply didn't exist."Francis chimes in "I haven't found anything with facial recognition software, that shit is supposed to be near flawless. we can find men in mask and where they live with ease, but as shin said, these fucks just don't exist.""its ISIS." Alexis states flatly.its never ISIS.
>>1448963Clones maybe, CIA? Maybe those left over that were already infected?
You leave the living room after turning the TV back on."and Florida is called for Donald Trump."Shin: "what how?"Francis snickers as Alexis grabs him by the collar of his shirt and shakes him ferociously."YOU SON OF A BITCH! WHAT DO YOU KNOW, LITTLE ASSWIPE!""how people think." he says with a smile as he grabs his glass.you close the door behind you as you hear the sound of the money jar shattering and very severe beating. now you have the quiet to think, it can't be Heller, he's one man and has been avoiding blackwatch and anything related like the plague. has yet to appear in the news for the last two years except in speculation pieces. who?>write in your guess.

>that moment when you really want the anons to come up with a unique weapon to use for rienholt but instead they waste the bonuses on failed guesses.12You dive out of the way of the blade of the scientist. as the blade passes over your head cleaves a surgical table clean in two. your about to make a break for the exit when the lockdown doors come crashing down. your former employee with his hand the button of the emergency button. by now an alarm has been triggered to order everyone out of the building until a time that its deemed safe. you are not safe, your trapped inside of a room with an evolved who's arm is glowing a color it by all means shouldn't.You take a deep breath as the scientist starts approaching you almost like a mindless drone. it's arm extended towards you from the elbow. You quickly form a tower shield sized wall of chiton from your left arm, and a thin, long double edged blade from your right.roll 1d20+3 to engage.+2 if you can demonstrate some martial arts knowledge and describe how Rienholt sword and boards.

Rolled 10 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1449806>Deflect the sword with your tower shield when he attacks, as taking it head on will most likely hurt us more, while we jab into the person's side.

Rolled 19 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1449806Rienholt seems like a crafty-stabby guy, so he should play off of other people's misconceptions, right?Keep the shield held between us and him so that he gets accustomed to it being there while we fight and it seems like a standard knight's duel. Then, feint a swing with our sword arm and grow a blade from the shield arm while he's distracted to impale him with.
Rolled 19 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1449806No idea boss, I'm a gun man
Two 19's and they come after the first three rolls. oh well.15 great success.you allow the strange new evolved to swing heavy handedly at your shield as if wielding an axe, being sure to let it only roll along the edge of the chiton plating. as his third swing is deflected, you raise your sword arm over the shield and thrust into the arm of the Scientist. as he stands still you slam him with your tower shield and slam him again into a wall. certainly someone must have heard that with the large crack it left.quickly the evolved begins to get back up. attempting to jump over you to swipe at your back.roll 1d20+2 and you got lucky you made 15, remember what I said about hard mode.

21 major successthe creature gets over your head and begins to swipe, but finds the tower shield in it's way. you stop the blow from doing any form of damage but it forces you to reel back, and the bizarre evolved tries to take advantage this and swings from overhead, and finds it's blade stuck on your shield.roll 20+3 to retaliate.+2 if Rienholt can come up with something very cruel to do to the scientist when you find those traitors.if it becomes another sextoy joke i'm hanging myself.

All these invalid rolls
>>1449932This one I read in a book.>I am going to encase half of you in concrete, vertically, leaving the left half free to be fed an IV drip and sedatives right up until the day your encased half rots away, rubbing against the cold, hard stone, trapping your bleeding and pus against your eroding flesh.

>>1450005>eat it, slowly.
>>1450005>I should want to strangle you with the braided hair of a midget with down syndrome.Sounds like a good time!>eat it, slowly
you reabsorb your shield and blade to pick the defeated evolved up by the neck, you push your fingers into it's chest and slowly worm your tendrils through it's body until it's on the brink of death, then you start absorbing the evolved.rather than memories. you see nothing for a moment, as expected when you are eating slowly. then suddenly rather than memories, all you see and hear is the shrill, screeching scream of a small child, the noise is unbearable. almost as unbearable as the strange rejection of biomass in your body as a green puss like mass erupts from your side.tiredness, you feel tired after that. you have questions, such as what the fuck was that?>your fucking done for now, just get back up stairs and have a clean up crew handle this. as well as keeping an eye on your fellow scientist.>search around the lab, there has to be something to explain what just happened.>get your agents and some staff, it's time to check inventory.
>>1450059>search around the lab, there has to be something to explain what just happened.>get your agents and some staff, it's time to check inventory.
calling it for the night, will continue on again in the morning. i'm glad I got as many replies in this quest as I did, wasn't expecting to do this well on my first quest.
>>1450059>search around the lab, there has to be something to explain what just happened.>get your agents and some staff, it's time to check inventory.>>1450117Same, I didn't expect there to be so many Prototype fans
Will start running in a couple hours.
Rolled 15 (1d20)alright, five hours but who's counting.you begin looking through the lab before canceling the lockdown, then call for your agents.you don't really find anything yourself except that they either took apart, destroyed, or managed to take their research with them before fleeing.
you find that your security team had it's camera's disabled in the laboratory during the night of the party, however some logs from before then show a very curious event. they turn on the recording, several of the scientist are shown gathered around a petri dish. Far more than you would consider normal for a simple observation. they appear to be talking to each other, no actually they're talking to the petri dish.Alexis comes back holding a stack of papers and an SD card. "Shin said it's important" she said. recent request from the scientist in your off the records department, missing samples of DX-1118. even a slew of employees calling in sickdays around May. . may, that was when.you made your way back up to the office and put the SD card into your computer. your not sure what files your opening but afterwards you recognize what your looking at. it's the same program that was on one of the monitors when Francis was receiving his injection. the injection site seems to be the face, oddly the sensors only show a change to that region, and the Cardiovascular system.you need to respond to this somehow.>increase the number of DX-1121 supersoldiers in your ranks.>ramp up production of Chiton armor to your combat assets.>release DX-1118 to more of your assets, you need to fight fire with fire.>do nothing, it's eggheads as evolved, the last one was dangerous but nothing you or your men can't handle.>write in.
>>1451287>ramp up production of Chiron armor and make sure all working in the labs or things like that now stay on base at all times and have trackers in them. However don't inform them>more super soldier's from those hired before may.>Get a new area set up and move assets out quietly to a desert or some place where we have the lay of the land and can keep everyone there for good.
>>1451287>Look into the research yourself. The secrets of immortality are currently best understood by a bunch of crazed lunatic researchers. THIS IS NOT OKAY. Those fuckers might come up with some general 'fuck everything' strain that you and everything you've made will be completely ineffectual against. You need to understand this shit so you can counter it yourself. Even if it means eating all your OTHER scientists tangentially related to the project.
give me 2d20+1
Rolled 4, 19 + 1 = 24 (2d20 + 1)>>1451353Well okay normal person.
Rolled 11, 4 + 1 = 16 (2d20 + 1)>>1451353I bet my ID has changed again
Rolled 1, 19 + 1 = 21 (2d20 + 1)>>1451353
>>1451366Are you the guy who has rolled 1's like 3 times this quest so far?
>>1451394You're gonna get a pay cut if this keeps up.
>>1451398Jokes on you, I'm getting double immortality.
you decide to enact some sweeping policy changes to put the blackwatch to shame in terms of security, but most of them end up locking out several of your loyal scientist from being able to even enter the laboratory facilities.>discard these changes.>try and make it work.meanwhile you mangage to really bolster your forces, not so much with more armor, but rather, your number of supersoldiers has damn near doubled since you started recruiting more aggressively for the program.finally you have to move your assets to a more secure location, the swamp. you make arrangements.
>>1451401You'll need triple at this rate with all these 1's.
>>1451415>Make it work.>There is no try here, Also alert the soup agencys via a dead line or the President that ISIS or some other terrorists group has Bio-weapons on US soil which can make a much worse Red Zone.
>>1451415For the record, these are MY policy changes.>Try and make it work.
>>1451416>>1451429do you really want to bring that cloud of suspicion over your company? alerting the alphabet soup could have consequences.roll me 1d20-3 to make your new security protocols functional.
Rolled 6 - 3 (1d20 - 3)>>1451457We can always eat somebody from a Bio-medical firm, go as them to the 3 letter soup guys and do that right? Draw attention to our 'rivials' and those who also hire blackwatch
Rolled 9 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1451457Still not sure how to get this to work
Rolled 8 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1451457Nah, the Soup is waaaay too hot for us.
9-3=6failure.you fail to get the new security protocols to work, a couple scientist decide to retire, of course, retirement doesn't mean they get to go free. "accidents" are arranged and consumptions happen, you learn enough to know just how blacklight lets your cells change their very shape, not so much how you condense so much biomass into the size of a human. Francis and Alexis urge you to simply adopt the measures that blackwatch came up with towards the end of the NYZ incident.>just keep these measures you made. (most effective, but will prevent your scientist from being able to even work more than once in a while. effectively stalling RND.)>adopt blackwatch policies. (more effective. will cause suspicion amongst your security personal and being modified for your evolved assets won't be as secure.)>just go back to normal security procedures.
>>1451513>just keep these measures you made. (most effective, but will prevent your scientist from being able to even work more than once in a while. effectively stalling RND.)>Adopt BlackWatch polices for our military/security personalKeep the two separate, Because we can't let the Nerd's think Security is on there side, and we can't let Security bully or know what the nerds are doing.Also our main work should be at the swamp? I guess we're going call. So it should't draw too many eyes if we have everybody living underground and stuff like that.
>>1451531sorry anon, but those security measures will end up applying for both the military and your RND crews. also, by taking both your effectively making it impossible for your employees to get into the labs, which under blackwatch security measures tends to get people spirited away. in short, you may want to pick one.
>>1451546>>1451513Ignore this then >>1451513 and go with this post here Oh my apologizes then, Well then I'll just go with >>just keep these measures you made. (most effective, but will prevent your scientist from being able to even work more than once in a while. effectively stalling RND.)
>>1451546Why would BlackWatch policies cause suspicion?
>>1451513>keep these measures We already have people after our samples.
>>1451566because you have some ex-blackwatch and you haven't told most of your security team what it is that you have your scientist experimenting with. the question is do you think it's ok that security knows that godlike powers/Horrific NYZ outbreaks are one hallway away? they may ask questions when a couple people are taken out back and are never seen again.
>>1451584Oh okay I see where you're getting at.>just go back to normal security procedures.
>>1451611Anon, Going back means more snitches and more stolen vials of our juice that causes Red Zones.
2 against 1, calling the voting in five minutes.
>>1451618Well I would like to get some research done, or not have our Security rebel against us
>>1451653Wait, I thought it meant on certain DAYS we can't do RnD. Not 'all RnD stops' if all RnD stops, I'm voting blackwatch.
>>1451653Changing too blackwatch. As that other anon pointed out. RnD is super important and I don't wish it to stop at all
you decide to take the suggestion of your compatriots and instate some modified blackwatch security measures. notifications of the new changes to security are passed out and some of your more passive security quits. how fortunate they don't know a damn thing, lets you hire people who are actually more serious about their work and don't have a problem with detaining random people.productivity seems normal in the weeks leading up to the move to 'new' facility. An Armored transport is secured and a number of armed and armored "security guards" are set to move with it. You even ordered Alexis to go with them, figuring one Evolved should be enough. now you bide your time."Rienholt! We have con-BANG!"_________________________________End of Thread.will have the new one, with the start of the quest up in a couple hours.
