Old thread: 1452048Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=[PROTOTYPE]You are Jacob Marshal, a man who recently drove his sister into the redzone of a blacklight outbreak, became a lovecraftian horror, and are to busy to summarize this because your too busy fighting what looks like a satanic porcupine!1d20+3 to continue your mauling.+1 if you can give a good (or horrible) one liner.+2 if you can think about how pissed Nina would be that your fighting another monster.
the Monday slowdown is real.
>>1466927Sorry QM, homework and shit. Tomorrow should be better
Rolled 15 + 3 (1d20 + 3)>>1466927I'm sorry! I left to go do things for a bit!I'm also terrible at one liners, but in exchange I think I've finally come up with an interesting Prototype range option. It's always bothered me that there isn't one in game. I'm thinking of drawing it up, so give me a while and I'll see if I can't give the thread a sketch.
>>1466977I would very much love this.
>>1466990I'm not much of an artist, but we'll see how it turns out.
18 success.you have effectively brutalized. this thing that you can get a good look at it and not have it trying to kill you. it's definitely on it's last legs.>consume it!>kill it and leave it.>write in.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1466842>Ah geeze, I'm a dead man. *roar* Not from you, Nina's gonna kill me.
>>1467011>OM NOM IT!Also been playing through the Dead Space games. FLESH MOON!
>>1467011>consume it!Consume is always the answer in [Prototype] for something you haven't seen yet!
Your tendrils talons rip into the beast throat as the third burst through top of the skull, the satanic porcupine has been quelled, and your feeder tendrils set to work eating away at it, leaving behind a largely empty husk.Your dominant arm begins to change, your combat tendrils seem to meld together and talons turn to a ring of jagged spikes of whatever your made up at the end of what appears to be a flesh-like tube Your upper forearm appears to be breathing if that makes sense, and at your elbow you see quills, much like the ones you had been dodging and watching the beast you were fighting shoot everywhere. Now a small group of infected have shown up, about four of them, seems your fight with porcupine from hell drew their attention.>lets test this arm out.>I’m too busy for this.>fuck the new arm, back to the tendrils for more melee!
>>1467041>lets test this arm out.Better to test it here against a small group of infected than to try it against something worse later and realize we have no clue what it does.
>>1467041>Test it out>Try not to make Pew Pew noises with your mouth when you shoot>Make Pew Pew noises anyways
Roll 1d20+2 to mess this pack up.+1 if you can figure out how to use your remaining tendril arm with this.+1 if you can guess successfully what noise this arm quillshooter makes.
Rolled 4 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1467058Tendril arm becomes a pseudo-shotgun: If they get past the quills just whip it out at them to knock them back.Also, just a guess, but the hiss of a hydraulic accompanied by a...squishing sound? Some sort of fleshy sound, instead of a metallic one.
Rolled 1 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1467058+1: Use the remaining tendril arm to draw attention towards it, then fire the quills.+1: The quills sound like a silenced 9mm (e.g. next to no noise to draw attention to them)
Rolled 10 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1467058I'd think a pneumatic "chuff" followed by "THWACK" as the spike hits.
>>1467089fuck me my first roll and its a crit fail. back to lurking for me.
Nat 1, critical failure!You aim your arm cannon at the first of the zombies and grow the biggest grin on your face.“Pow Pow P-BRAP!*. . . your so stunned at the loud fart that comes out of your gun arm that your stuck just looking at it for a minute. You don’t notice that your shot only grazed the cheek of the infected. You also don’t notice them make their way to you, until one them takes a bite out your neck. -25 hp!>Try that again. And try not to pay the fart noise too much mind.>that quill shooter isn’t worth it with that farting sound, just the tendrils.>leave, you’ve embarrassed yourself enough.>write in.
>>1467102>Try that again. And try not to pay the fart noise too much mind.
>>1467102>Try that againWe need to have a ranged option for us to at least close the distance if we end up going with a melee build.
>>1467102>>write in.Change the design so it whistles or makes any other noise besides farting.Then try again.
>>1467105I have mentioned the tendrils you already have work for a grappling arm. you can either pull something towards or from you, or you can pull yourself somewhere.>>1467106consume these guys and that may be an option.
You jump back and take aim.Roll 1d20+2 again.
>>1467111I am a terrible artist, but here's a rough sketch of what I was thinking.I maybe will do a more artistic and less bare-bones version later.The idea with this is that it's pretty easily scaleable. Could take up just the forearm, or could be a bigger thing that takes up the whole arm. Maybe hangs off kinda like the blade arm? Would be more of a single-shot thing than a rapid fire weapon. Think non-repeating crossbow. But hey, if the spike's big enough you could give it a payload!Also I probably drew it a little too short and fat.
Rolled 58 + 2 (1d100 + 2)>>1467112
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>1467112Fartarm, ACTIVATE
Rolled 13 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1467112Wrong dice
>>1467112How much force will we eventually be able to put into these quills?Wondering if it wouldn't be possible to grapple arm something, then quill shotgun blast them away for shits and giggles.
>>1467118okay, I don't feel so bad now.
Rolled 10 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1467112
>>1467120I hope 15 is a pass.
>>1467116it's similar to how I'm working it. ever use a paintball gun with High Pressure Air? similar but add in the aforementioned Super strong muscle bullshit. it is a very nice sketch though, I may have to use it for something later.15 good success.*BRAPBRAPBRAPBRAP*You put a quill through the head of each of the infected. with that done, theres only one question.>consume, we want the points.>head to the hallway, we want to end this mission!
>>1467140>>consume, we want the points
>>1467140>consume, we want the points.Also, we came to look for drugs. Are there any drugs for us to take back?
>>1467140>consume, we want the points.The answer is always consume.
After devouring the infected, you take a moment and realize something. You actually feel stronger.>General upgrade>Bioupgrade.>>1467145shit, almost forgot about that. bad QM, back to your shed.
>>1467140I thought about pneumatics, but I couldn't think of a good way to get that to work. I will admit I don't know much about how paintball guns work.
>>1467151paintball enters chamber. pulling trigger releases HPA or CO2. CO2/HPA push the ball out of the barrel at high velocity.
>>1467149lookit that. Its shake n bake and I halped!>General upgradeAfter the experience with the hunter, I feel like we need some endurance. Barring that, we could use some strength.
>>1467157Oh, I know that much. I was just thinking you could get a hell of a lot more omph from it if you could really seal the barrel, which would be hard to do with a solid spike. Also you'd want more surface area for the air to "push" on, which would then necessiate a rounder, flatter base on the spike, which isn't so good from an aerodynamics standpoint.I'm an engineer and I get the feeling I've way overthought this.
Pick one.>dense biomass: HP upgrade by 100 points.>enhanced muscle mass: +1 to strength checks.>Adrenal Production: +1 when below half your health rounded down.>Proficiency: Natural Weapons: +1 to the accuracy of weapons formed from your own body. (overrides the bonus of any specific natural weapon your proficient in to the same degree.)
>>1467192considering whores have been fire ping pong balls out of their cunts [spoiler/] for ages without compressed air. you probably did overthink it.
>>1467198>dense biomassMore HP means better chance to survive to get more upgrades for cooler stuff later.
>>1467198>>Adrenal Production: +1 when below half your health rounded down.
>>1467200Overthinking is kinda my job. Because going "Nah, it's good enough" means terrible things happen in my industry.Also, asking "I wonder how that works?" or "How would you do that?" leads to all kinds of interesting discoveries and ideas, I find.

14 minor . . failure? Success?While you don’t find the drugs, you do find a number of boxes under the one of the counters. And even a few lunchboxes. One of them is apparently missing. Huh.>back to the hallway and onwards towards physical therapy.>take another detour. (employee lounge and diagnostic medicine are the only area’s left.)
>>1467305Might be something useful in physical therapy. There's all kinds of equipment in there that could be repurposed for other uses. Also might find crutches for our cousin if she doesn't already have a pair.
you make you way back towards physical therapy, and the generator you need to swap out year old fuses on.
Rolled 18 (1d20)ok, sorry anons but I need sleep, here's hoping I don't sleep for sixteen god damn hours again.
>>1467335I'll be here after work tomorrow. I'm glad someone's finally doing a quest based on [Prototype]. I always thought it was a setting with a lot of potential.

>>1467198>dense biomass: HP upgrade by 100 points.>>1467200So we chose to be an air compressor instead of shooting out needles like hydralisks with muscles?
I will be running as soon as my power comes on so I don't have to do this by fucking phone posting.
>>1467380think less air compressor and more like the human bowel system when sharting.First thing you notice when you peak into the physical therapy room is that all the gym equipment has been arranged to make a simple barricade, probably meant to keep some of the zombies out. and that there's someone in there arranging heavy weights into some sort of large chair. you do hear some rambling."I'm king! King! King of this house! They think they can replace me! Ha! I show him! I'll show the! my pets!"*rawrg* "huh? do I need to feed you again?"your not sure but that roar sounded like a lazier one of those things that attacked you back when you were on your way back with the supplies group. Either way, the man in there is probably insane.>go in, guns, or tendrils, blazing. (pick a weapon or weapons.)>maybe there's a way you can sneak past.>maybe you can talk to him?>write in.

>>1468295>>attack. (specify)He is obviously a psysch. What's our HP?If it is fairly high, then I suggest we use our needler to kill the "king" and we use our tendrils to impale the creature

“Hey junkie, I've got a fix for you right here!”*BRAP* your needler fires a large, thick quill into the drugged up psycho’s chest.“Inject that!”Well, now the technician he killed can rest easy. . unless getting eaten – ok best not to think about that. You now have two hunters in cages, at least they look like hunters. You could probably take the time for a meal. Why does the one on the left look greenish?>eat them.>eat them.>eat them.>focus, your objective is in the door marked maintenance.>maybe loot the junkie or the room, or both.>write in.

>>1468352So we have 2 arm cannons now? Sweet.>eat them.>eat them.>eat them.Can we like make sacks of flesh that's inert that we can eat later?
You take aim at the beast on the right and dump almost fifteen of those large quills into it before it falls down and stops moving. It's not the most satisfying kill but it's still a good filling meal. . . ok why are you thinking like some kind of predator? Nevermind, all that's left is the one on the left. odd, it's not howling or growling like the other one, it's just looking at you.>eat it.>onto the looting.
>>1468364sorry but no, there is no portable meals in prototype. yet.
>>1468386>eat itwe aint some kind of pussy

gonna wait just a tad longer.
>>1468386Try and communicate with it.
>>1468386>>1468415You know what, fuck it why not
Sorry Anons had to disappear for a couple minutes.You walk up to it and lean over. What follows is a long and challenging staring contest. “. . . . can you speak?”Of course, the beast says nothing. So, you put out a hand, only for it to swipe with a claw and miss.“so, not very friendly are you.”And still no reply.>just kill it and eat it?>leave the damn thing be.>try something else? (write in.)
>>1468469>>leave the damn thing be.
>>1468469Can we Nav'i the thing and shove a tentacle head tail into its brain to communicate? Worse case is we turn its mind to mush, and get a headache for our troubles.
>>1468469>kill and eat it
>>1468480not really, shoving a tendril through a skull tends to have the effect of killing the recipient.
>>1468469>>kill and eat itSlurp it up.Acquire immunity to stupid anti virus, consume all the scientists
>>1468486Well if we end up doing that then we eat it. The important thing is we try. Do it with soft flesh and like nerve endings or something.
You unload the rest of the quills into the beast. Once it stops moving your tendrils set to work devouring what they can of it. Odd, you head feels-

You put the pistol away in your bag after unchambering the little piece. With that done, and the room cleared out. You head on to the generator room.

>>1468999>>rifle. current. 11 shotsIt's probably better used for most situations
>>1468999What kind of shells? Cube shot is surprisingly effective.
>>1468999>rifle>pistol>shotgunI have no idea what caliber the guns are in, and what kind of magazine size for ammo we have.Probably rifle since unless hes got slugs for the shotgun it'll be less damage. Plus its a sawn-off anyways.

“5.56 please.”With that Winston pushes two boxes of fifty rounds towards you. (about 16 shots.)“Thank you very much for helping us. So, tell me. What’s your account of that grizzly scene when you and my granddaughter were coming back here from your trip for supplies?”“why do you want to know?”“really now, your hear with a loved one, I think you can answer that one yourself.”“Well, it ambushed us, and killed one of the others, tore her head off.

>>1469073>"I hit it with my machete before it did, though. The blade broke off but I had it's attention. Madison did...something to distract it, I think, and then I unloaded into its head with a rifle I picked up.
>>1469095They might be keeping stronger munitions in matchboxes for rationing purposes.
>>1469095((your using a auto AR-15, those things spit out bullets fast. while 16 shots is a fucking lot of ammo, your gun holds 8 shots and can spend the entire mag in four to two turns, or one if you want to get crazy. one shot is equivalent to one short burst.))“then I Struck it with my machete, stopping it mid charge.”"I still find that hard to believe, but continue."he said still, Madison must have told him a little about what happened.when I tried to hit it in the head the blade broke off.

“You know as well as I do on how hectic it is when you're in the thick of it. Your daughter did an admirable job.”“that I am sure of and proud of. Your point.”“well, we both unloaded on it sir."He stands up, walks over to you and puts a hand on your shoulder. “do you know what I think?”“uh.”“I think my granddaughter got very lucky that someone as brave as you was able to be there to protect her. Which is why I have a new request.”“I. . what?”“I want you to take her with you on one of her next little adventures.”“WHAT!?”“oh, she wants to go out and keep doing whatever to help this group of survivors. But as much as I want to see that. I need to be sure she is able to defend herself, so I want you to bring her with you so that maybe she can learn a few things.”>please, don’t make me.

"and for Hydes bedtime story, there was once four little troopers we saw shoot a woman. they made her a bait trap to blow up a pack of those shamblers. and now they're stowed away inside an old warehouse building. anyone seen going out there is liable to get shot in the neck.

nothing seems to be happening, you end up kept at the table for the most part of this game, one thing your are fortunate on is taking two of the other players out of this event. with their money spent, and them going for moving a box of explosives, now it's just you and this other guy.>go for his money too.>go for the kill.>maybe you can excuse yourself somehow?>write in.

>>1470089>yeah go after the others.
ok, new plan, stay awake long enough till it's nine at night and then sleep.You head towards the two who wandered off, last you can recall from your most recent meals memory is that the other two went to move a crate of explosives. your not sure what kind of explosives but if they're unstable you may be able to kill two birds with one grenade, if you can find a grenade first. well, it's that, or you can try to blitz them in a tendril frenzy, and of course sneakily eating them as you have been.

>>1470490>>1470505fyi, if the crate does contain explosives, and we do cause a secondary reaction, we'd be in the blast zone.
>>1470490you begin walking over towards the right side, going past some of the large shelves and stacked pallets. and one of the troopers is walking up to you. shit."Hey lieutenant, how'd the card game go.">quick, stealth kill!>maybe you can bluff him.>chimp out!>write in.
>>1470508Then the troopers won't shot in fear of blowing themselves up... hopefuly.
>>1470514>maybe you can bluff him.
>>1470515most explosions are not usually caused by ballistic impact, rather extreme heat or a pressure wave tend to the what detonates a dormant explosive. it's why if you throw a grenade at say a barrel of oil it will probably explode and throw sticky burning fuel everywhere, while shooting it gives you a leaking barrel.

you find one of the spare Blackwatch mask laying around. might be something to take back, can't think of a better way to say, "hey they're dead, I can't say why but they're gone."after a couple of minutes, you find what they made for a comms room.

Rolled 2 (1d2)i'm really sick of rolling.1winston2walk.
>>1472201true, but Winston, who is the head of this operation for whatever reason, needs to know that the gas run tomorrow could be a shitshow. We'll need the guns from the warehouse if we're gonna do it right.
>>1472252That's what I'm saying. We disappear for a little, come back, and then go to Winston and tell him the guys are all dead, the warehouse is full of guns, and there's no infected around ("they must have moved on, or something"). Winston gets his guns, and we don't fall under any suspicion. If he asks why we were there, we just tell him we were scoping it out because we were worried. Hopefully Madison hasn't mentioned to him that we were gone last night.
you decide that your going to head out for a walk."and it's time again for Hyde's mid day announcements. First off, we have fuel to collect, in two hourse were going to be cleaning out the gas tanks of abandoned cars and trucks. and in five hours we're taking it straight from the station. The Pres Elect has stated that he is willing to deploy firebombs if this outbreak leaves Florida, as has Barry the ape fucker. looks like there's one thing everyone in DC can agree on, the only thing we're good for is a vacation spot and target practice. Finally overwatch spotted a big commotion coming from the direction of that warehouse. it was either a mutiny or a bad case of I have no fucking idea. point is no patrols have been seen since last night."shit, looks like they're going to the gas pumps later, that could turn nasty if the Blackwatch guys you ate weren't joking about a nest growing down there.>take care of the nest.>do something else.

>>1472410the building is the gas station mini mart, and if your alright with destroying what the people in the hospital want to get out of it, then by all means, ram away is an option if you can hotwire the tanker.
>>1472415Could we load a truck with the gasoline, store it somewhere, and blow the station?
>>1472427I'm going to need at least two or three votes in favor of this before I allow it.
>>1472427I like this idea.Also, captcha is gas stations
>>1472427This is a really good idea. Nothing could possibly go wrong.
You resolve to blow the gas station on top of the nest before any of the survivors can get to it. Question is how are you going to get the fuel tanker down there filled up?>maybe the infected won’t notice me, or care.>maybe I can fill it up from the cars. (this may leave the survivors with no fuel at all to syphon.)>I do have a grenade, maybe throwing it at a pump would have the same enough effect.>I could fight them off long enough to fill it.>write in.
>>1472523>>write in.We'll slowly glide the truck into the gas station and start filling it up. If the infected notice, it will be like a videogame mission where we have to defend the truck
>>1472523>Well, Winston DID want you to take her on an adventure...Recruit Madison for this. She can fill it while you hold off the hoard.
>>1472523>I could fight them off long enough to fill it.This can only go well. Madison could help, I suppose. Although If we go back to get her, why not just tell Winston that the gas station is full of infected, but hey, there's an empty warehouse full of guns just over there.
>>1472529Anon, the survivors won't like it if the gas station, and it's supply of gas, is destroyed, and Madison has a lot more loyalty towards the survivors than she does you. remember they want the gas but there is a nest under there, so by extension she wants the gas.>>1472553telling Winston it's full of infected may be a good idea if you insist on bringing Madison along, he might not agree but maybe, just maybe you can convince him it's not worth the trouble.
Gonna give you all ten minutes or so longer to decide on a course of action.
>>1472560But we voted to load the gas in a tanker and then move it somewhere else.We'd fill up the tanker, then use whatever gas was left to blow up the hive.
>>1472582God damn it me. Ok, I'm going to need to take a day from running this, but I think I'll finish the thread first.just for the record it's going to be a very difficult roll to blow the whole station with the remaining gas after filling the truck.bring Madison.>yes>no

You hop into the passenger seat of the tanker, pushing your duster to the side as you lean back. A few minutes later, Madison hops in the drivers seat. She apparently took the time to grab a thick long sleeve, ballistics vest, and an SMG. Your not sure, but it looks like she did up her hair.". . . Do either of us know how to drain the tanks of a gas station?""I. . . god damn it."Well, an hour of reading a manual later, you both know how to set up the hose into the pumps, although with no experience.

you make your way towards the hive, grabbing your rifle and letting out a sweep of bullets. the sound of gunfire and screeching actually does draw a few of them away from the tanker, meaning that's less Madison will have to deal with on her own right now.

you jump off the building and slam a tendril right through one of the infected trying to get trough the cab door.

It seems at this rate the most your doing is keeping away from these things, your not even getting a moment to close in for a hit.The worst part is probably once your made to rolls through a shop window, and then out again. being made to climb up the side of a building even for a minute was enough to piss you off. the most irritating thing is how damaged these buildings have become from the military strafing runs. having to ride a chunk of an apartment down onto a car wasn't as fun as it sounded in your head.>switch to a ranged weapon, keep up the dance.>keep it up, maybe you can out last the hunters.>try to break off from the hunters.>write in.

You then pick her up in a cradle carry and leap out of the wrecked vehicle. You have to hurry you jump up and over a few roof tops, and then your nearing the line of sight of the hospital overwatch.>who the fuck cares, she needs help! you'll leap right into the middle of the building if that's what you have to do.>walk over, It may not be good for Madison to be made to wait a little but you don't need it to be known you have lovecraftian superpowers.>write in.
>>1479066>walk over, It may not be good for Madison to be made to wait a little but you don't need it to be known you have lovecraftian superpowers.
>>1479066>>who the fuck cares, she needs help! you'll leap right into the middle of the building if that's what you have to do.This is kinda our fault...
>>1479066>who the fuck cares, she needs help! you'll leap right into the middle of the building if that's what you have to do.I think Madison dying is a worse outcome than us getting found out.
>>1479066>>who the fuck cares, she needs help! you'll leap right into the middle of the building if that's what you have to do.
Rolled 9 + 3 (1d20 + 3)Give me a while, I have to take care of a few things, in the meantime, rolling for how well the population takes to man in duster and cowboy hat leaping from a tall building into the lobby and then jumping up to the second floor rather than using the stairs.
Six, they won't take to this well be back later Anons.
Ok! i'm finally home, I missed ya'll.People immediately start backing away from the area and talking amoungst themselves, meanwhile your on the top floor looking for one of the nurses, they seem to be in a hurry of getting her into a care room while bombarding you with questions of was she bit or if she had come into physical contact with an infected. It takes a while but she finally receives the care she needs. please roll me one d20. only the first roll will be taken.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>1480248shit
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>1480248
6 minor failure.Madison ends up in intensive care, the nurses don't seem to be able to come to a consensus if she's going to recover in a month or in a matter of days. Meanwhile the crowd outside seems to be increasingly nervous, you can't imagine that Mr. Winston is going to be happy with this.>talk to Nina.>talk to Winston.>try talking to Brian and Mark.
>>1480288>>talk to Winston.
>>1480288>talk to Winston.
Your making your way up towards Winston's office, when the guards stop you. they end up asking what your business up here is and you tell them it's about his granddaughter. a few minutes later and one of the guards comes back, with a flat, "Mr. Winston will see you now." Lovely.It's the same office as every other time you've been in here, except this time the man in the chair is turned away from his desk. When he speaks, his voice doesn't at all sound pleasant."Have a seat.">Take a seat.>Try to apologies.>Maybe you should see yourself out.>write in.
>>1480332>>Take a seat.
>>1480332>take a seat.captcha ate my post.
You pull out the chair and sit down."Now, I'm missing a tanker truck we needed, there's panic downstairs after your little stunt leaping through the lobby, but most importantly my beloved granddaughter is now in an intensive care unit."And then he turns around. A large shotgun is in his hands. it seems to be a semi-auto."And honestly, I'm debating if I should be letting you leave this room or not. so, lets start with the tanker you two stole.">start with the nest.>explain that you two were going to be getting the fuel yourselves.>state that you didn't mean for her to get in an accident.>write in.
>>1480383>start with the nest.
>>1480383>>start with the nest.>state that you didn't mean for her to get in an accident.>even if you wanted to "never let me leave this room" you couldn't. There is a reason I managed to kill those Blackwatch soldiers, and take out all of those infected, and it is because I am a superhuman. As far as I am concerned, I don't deserve your stern talkings.
anyone else here want to vote?
>>1480413I don't think there's many people in here. And don't reveal the powers yet! Not until we have to.
>>1480413>>1480424Yeah don't tell him that shit, just tell him about the nest.
well, I might have to roll for it if nobody shows up. if either of you are desperate to get your course of action pushed, shilling for this quest on /qtg/ is an option. ((PLEASE GET ME MUH PLAYERBASE!!!))>>1480434oh looks like nest wins. writing.
Just got back after moving some stuff with a friend.If he wants us to explain how we knew that shit, tell him, we snuck out a while back and ran into some blackwatch soldiers who were talking about blowing up a nest and how it be a big explosion since its right ontop of a gas station. We we approached them, they started shooting at us, and we bolted.
"There was. . a nest, of infected. there were multiple's of those beast like the one that was stalking and killing people""And you took my Granddaughter into that large patch of monsters? You better have a good damn reason for it or I'll have you cremated, and your ashes fed to that precious Nina of yours."that will be 1d20-2 to explain why you had Madison come with your, along with the tanker.+3 if you can come up with a good explanation for taking her with you to the gas station nest.+1if you can complement his granddaughter while doing so.+2 If you can explain how you know about this without freaking him out about your lovecraftian powers.
Rolled 19 + 2 (1d20 + 2)>>1480463Well you wanted her to get combat experience from the best one around here, so I brought her to wipe out a nest, that we successfully did, by the way. She held her own and while I think I am a good teacher, she is a natural when it comes to fighting. It must be in her blood. That's all there is to say. I take full responsibility for what happened and if there is something that needs fetched to help her, I will get it.

"Well you wanted her to get combat experience from the best one around here, so I brought her to wipe out a nest, that we successfully did, by the way. She held her own and while I think I am a good teacher, she is a natural when it comes to fighting. It must be in her blood."he just looks really irritated now. but takes a deep breath."so your telling me the two of you destroyed a nest.""I take full responsibility for what happened and if there is something that needs fetched to help her, I will get it-""I asked you a question. you said you two destroyed a nest of infected. is that true.">stick to that lie.>come clean.>modify your definition of destroy.>write in.
>>1480547did we actually wipe it out? I thought we did
>>1480547>stick to that lie.
>>1480561. . . read man.[spoiler/] you haven't, you had Madison retreat while you finished off the special infected above it, but then the normal infected swarmer's had made too thick a crowd and you had to go find her. [spoiler/]
>>1480572Ah shit, well >modify your definition of destroy.We finished off all special infected above it, and all that remains is the swarm of infected I can easily take care of, if you will let me
>>1480547"Well, maybe destroy is a strong word..."
>>1480584This. Say:"Its not half as dangerous as it was before...."If pressed, mention that completely destroying the nest would destroy the gas station and all the fuel as well. We were trying to take the gas station intact.
"well, maybe destroy is a strong word. It's not as dangerous as it was before. .""Excuse me?""we can't completely destroy it, destroying it would mean destroying the gas and that's what we were trying to get.""so what the fuck do you mean by you "destroyed it" do you take me as some kind of easy to fool old coot!?""we killed the more dangerous infected, the ones that shoot needles or those things that were stalking the survivors over here."he seems to be gritting his teeth."If she did so well, then why is she in intensive care right now.">we were on our way back and there were three hunters.>I had her retreat when it got too hot and she was ambushed.>I don't actually know for certain why she crashed.>write in.
>>1480643>>we were on our way back and there were three hunters.Tell the truth.
>>1480658the truth is actually more of a mix of the first two, would you like to do that?
>>1480643>we were on our way back and there were three hunters.
>>1480680This is better, the more truth we tell, the easier the lies are.
>>1480680Yeah sure, mix the first 2.
You take a deep breath."I had her retreat when it got too hot, on our way back there were three hunters. She was ambushed.""Hunters?""the things that snuck around the perimeter killing people."". . . Then she was . . . is she infected. .""No."". . did you infect her.">ask him what he is talking about.>flat no.>state that your not infected.>write in.
>>1480754>ask him what he is talking about.
>>1480754>flat no.Say it like we are slightly offend.
>>1480761That's going to take us in a direction we won't like. By saying no we can avoid further questioning down that line.
To the Anon who preemptively Archived this thread, please do not do so again. I would at least like to have more information included in the tags and description before it gets saved.
>>1480786But if we say no, we didn't infect her, that still leaves open "we didn't infect her, but we could have" Asking him what he's talking about gets us the info on how much he knows or suspects, which we can use to tailor our responses further down the line.
god I hate rolling between decisions. five minutes while I refill my glass.
>>1480811>we didn't infect her, but we could haveHow would that even work? Unless he knows everything about us, then he may assume that but he doesn't. He may suspect something, but as far was we know, he knows nothing. By trying to act coy, it makes us more seem more suspicious, like a kid who is trying to avoid telling the truth, but doesn't want to lie. If anything a paranoid and intelligent doctor is more likely to suspect something if we act that way.
>>1480840>Unless he knows everything about usOkay that may be a bit hyperbolic
"No."". . . Our truck is gone, you will either go get it out of the rubble or clear out the rest of that nest, but if you do neither don't come back here.""but.""But nothing, you made this mess and you will clean it."he seem very adamant about this.>Agree.>ask a question.>Refuse to comply.>Refuse to comply without (X)>write in.
>>1480862>Refuse to comply without (X)More ammo/dakka!And maybe some explosives.
>>1480862>>Refuse to comply without (X)A thank you. I have been out risking my life for the good of this group and I have not been shown any gratitude.
>>1480868>plays a walking bioweapon.>wants to receive conventional weapons.>doesn't even take a moment to reload in a fight.What is this?
>>1480878Idk, I don't want to leave empty handed since I feel under appreciated, and gotta keep up the masquerade!
