>>168230Three more minutes and counting votes.
>>168266>>168230Ok, a small cave it is. You burst from your egg, slime running off of your blue-black shell. You are starving and need to feed your newly freed form. The lesser beetles scurry under your feet and could provide an easy meal, or the mushrooms growing from the walls if you prefer not to cannibalise your brethren.
>>168285Lesser beetles.We shall show our superiority.
>>168290You use your spiked "arms" to spear your brothers and sisters, devouring them as you please. You finally feel sated after you have decimated half of your lesser family. No longer hungry, you are curious about the world outside this cave. You peek outside and see a large hill devoid of trees to your left, and a lake to your left with a herd of deer grazing around it. In front of you is just more forest. What do you do? >Go deeper in the forest>Go to the lake, if so, what do you do with the deer? >climb the hill
>>168325>Go to the Top of the hill and look around to see if there is anything better.
>>168337Your body is still newly hatched and your muscles are weak. Your shelled body is heavy and your four legs are squat. After some considerable work you are very tired but at the top of the hill. Lets check out your eyesight.>roll 1d100, best of three.

Rolled 88 (1d100)>>168369
>>168430>>168470What timing you have! Alright, You look around you at the forrest. To one side there are just trees, growing bigger and older the further out you go, seemingly forever. To another side, huge mauntains far in the distance. Lastly you see something much closer to you. A group of.. things, hacking down the trees. They are going to be getting closer to your cave, and you are not sure if these upright, two legged creatures will be friendly. What do you do? >go try and chase them off>sneak closer and observe them>attemp to follow them back to where they came from once they start to leave>other.

You manage to follow them down a path, and about twenty minutes later they arrive at a camp, tents, a few log cabins, and cook fires dot the landscape. You estimate there are about twenty five of them. Way too many for you to just devour in head to head combat. What do you do? >Observe them and wait to strike at one who wanders off alone>wait for them to sleep and drag one away>watch and try to determine who their Lord is.>go home and gather strength to deal with them another day.>other.>

>>168625>>168627>>168633You wait for the fires to die down and them to get to sleep. You haven't eaten since you hatched many hours ago and feasted on your brethren. You are so hungry. When you are sure they are all asleep you try to sneak up to one on the outskirts and capture him. Your hunger leads you to be less careful and you kick a coffee pot next to a dying fire. It makes a loud clattering noise, and as you hear people start awake and start calling out you rush forward, crush the arm of the man staring at you in horror between your mandibles and scurry away as quickly as you can. Nobody sees you but the poor unfortunate you have dragged deep into the woods, who is too shocked and unconcious to scream for help. What do you do with him? >take him back to your cave to eat or try and interrogate?>devour or interogate hime here>other
>>168675>take him back to your cave to eat or try and interrogate?Safer

>>168723>attempt communicationCan't hurt to try. We could eat him if we can't talk.
>>168735I'll support this
>>168735>>168754You force down your urge to see what his innards taste like, and you lean in his direction. With his eyes wide and focused directly on you, you make a deep clicking and chirping noise, although much more bass that anything has likely ever chirped before. Roll me 1d100 for communication (+5 for stupid lucky decision by players bonus)
Rolled 26 + 5 (1d100 + 5)>>168781Hooray for stupid lucky

>>168803Fuck...Can we absorb his brains for knowledge at least?
>>168786>>168803He reals back in disgust, his hate overpowering his fear, at least for the moment. He snarls at you and says "Did you just try to SPEAK?! You fucking monsters disgust me! Welk you just wait you filthy fucks, once we clear cut this damn forrest the spiders win't have anywhere to hide, and we will burn you all out! I hope when you are burning alive you remember this moment, freak!" And he spits on one of your giant chitinous legs. What do you do?>ponder what he has said>Bisect him and eat his squishy body>Other.
>>168815I don't think beetles can do that. Yet. But at least he is a very vocal person!
>>168846>ponder what he has said>Then eat himOh, well. We just wanted to be food buddies.
>>168872You may be young, but you know you aren't a spider, and you haven't been around long enough to make enemies yet. Hmmm.. *Crunch, splish plop* As you think on the meanings of what he jas said, you casually rip him in half, spilling his internals externally all over your floor. You munch of his shredded body and wonder what it could mean as you tiny brothers and sisters emerge to eat what you leave behind.
>>168927Sharing is caring.That weed cookie isn't grass, Google.
>>168967After you have eaten all the good bits, you settle in to relax. As the sun comes up the next morning you feel.. different. Roll me a 1d100 for bonus shit. Only a very high roll gets you a bonus, you are getting better either way.

>>169047Glad people are enjoying enough to swap devices! >>169017>>169027Sadly, not high enough for good luck bonuses, but still. You awaken stronger. Slightly larger. Most importantly, Smarter. You know that the thing you ate last night was a "human" and was here to destroy the forrest that gives you shelter and keeps more of his kind at bay. You also know he mentioned spiders, and you aren't one. Perhaps you should meet with them? Or perhaps you should meat them? You :Try and sneak back to the human camp to see what they are doing? >go to the lake to eat and drink to keep your energy up>try and search the deeper woods for spiders. >Other.
>>169093>go to the lake to eat and drink to keep your energy upSave up some strength.
>>169093>go to the lake to eat and drink to keep your energy upby the way, what was our approximate size, before? I'm assuming the size of a human or slightly larger.
>>169104About the size of a lounge chair. You can look a man on the eyes. Now you are slightly bigger and need to lean down just a little bit to stare a 5'11 man in the face. You are about 6'2 and 225 pounds.You decide to go and get some energy, so you scuttle to the lake. You see a few deer still there enjoying the abundant water and greenery. You are not fast enough to catch them if they flee, but if you can sneak up to the one next to the forrests edge you could grab an easy meal. Otherwise you could drink some water or try and spear a fish.
>>169144>FishWe should hunt bigger game when we're faster.
>>169144>FISHCareful, we gotta look out for Spess Carp and Dwarven Fishermen...

>>169188>>169194 You just like.. Kay. You waddle over to the waters edge, and peer in, giant spiked claws ready to spear a fish. You see a fish staring right back up at you. a BIG fish. It leaps up at you, your mind ringing it's alarm bells. Then you spike it in its big ugly face and drag the bulky twitching mass of this huge carp out of the lake. This time, the bug eats the fish. as you gorge yourself in the corpse of your foe, you ponder if you should bring a little back to your weaker siblings. >Yes, feed the tiny ones.>No, MY fish!
>>169239Fuck em, we feed ourselves.

>>169239>>169246>>169251>>169252Alright. Feeling generous after you have stuffed most of this 6 foot long monster fish into your gullet, you drag back the corpse, which is mostly a bit left around the head and tail to your weak little siblings. After you drop it to the ground and back away they pour out of cracks and from under rocks, picking the bones clean. your good deed done for the day, and your hunger very well sated, what do you do? >Spiders?>Nasty little humanses?>explore, and which way, past lake, deeper in, or towards the mountans>Other.

When you look up to see what it was, you find a bone dry deer carcass hanging from a limb. You must be on the right track. You carefully work your way further in that direction, and as you go around a clump of briar bushes you see a giant spider webbing up a boar. it is busy and hasn't noticed you yet. it is slightly smaller than you, and looks much reedier but it is obviously venomous and you should approach with caution.

>>169416changing my vote to this
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>169402>>169416>>169430Looks like watching wins for now. You watch it for a few minutes as it webs up the boar. You see that it is obviously nimble and skilled at what it is doing, but you can't tell how they fare in combat. Suddenly you hear a loud squeal and a huge sow charges out of the woods at the spider, angry at it eating her young. Roll me a 1d100 for the boar, and I will roll one for the spider. If you wish to jump in and help one or the other, say so.

The sow rushes in and crashes into the side of the spider, sending if bowling to the ground, it uses its many legs to try and grapple the sow but it is still on top of the spider and goring it fairly well. You decide that the spider will die if you don't help, and that likely won't win you any eight legged friends. do you:>Push boar off the spider>Try and spike the boar but avoid slicing spider too >Other
>>169518>Push boar off the spider
>>169518If you don't like what is going on, Other is always a good way to choose a different action than is listed. Just making sure a last time that everyone knows.

>>169636You saved the bacon. or killed it rather. The serrated spike slams home, and pins the sow to the dirt. it starts to slow as you rip it free and spike her again. once it is good and dead, you turn your blood spattered frame to look at the spider, who has been staring at you and is now backing away slightly, getting into a defensive position.Now, What do You say? >Write in what you are saying to the spider please. >If not talking, you may attack>also you could just walk away I suppose
>>169675We just say hi.Like a normal, non-sociopathic beetle.
>>169675I heard from a human they want to kill all spiders, he thought I was a spider. He tasted mediocre. Let's not fight and just kill humans

>>169689>>169702You tilt your head to one side and wiggle your gore covered spikes back and forth while you click and chirp. You best attempt at "Hi, want to eat humans and be friends?" You see its eyes narrow and it seems to think before it makes a breathy hissing noise. You can almost understand what it is saying. It sounds something like " Allo, hhhmns ess yumss."

What will you do?>Try and stealthily drag one away>eat them both> Other

The problem starts when you try to grab the axes with your mandibles and cut yourself with one of the blades. you chirp and drop them, waking one of the men. you quickly scythe off his head, leaving his body spraying blood into the air as you raise one of your front feet and thump the other slowly waking man in the face, knocking him flat out. That could have gone better, but you are learning every time. soon they will never have a chance to know there is danger before they die.What do you do?>devour body here, take sleepy back home>devour body, wait for sleepy to wake and interrogate him>Other

Carefully grabbing sleepy in your mandibles you carry him home to your cave.Once you arrive home, you notice that now you can feel little pulses of power from the asteroid in the corner. likely they have always been there, but you are just getting to where you can feel them. You dump sleepy in the corner and shoo your siblings away from him so that they know he isn't food. yet.>Wait for him to wake up>try and find some way to hold him down and restrain him>also, what do you want to do with the head?

>>170117>>170118>>170122You go through many leafy squishy green vines before you find some nice hardened brown ones that were sturdy while still being soft enough to bend. then you find a nice heavy log near the lake. As you return, you see the man peeking out around the lip of the cave with his back turned to you. you start to scurry faster, and as he turns to see you, he yelps as you shove him down and drop the log on his legs, not quite breaking them, but making sure he stays put. He just sits there and whimpers as you thread the vines around the asteroid, making a little vine basket cage around it with a loop to go around your head. As the Asteroid touches your chest parts of it crumble off, revealing a deep green gem inside which glows lightly for a moment then calms. the pulses are stronger now, and you feel stronger and more able in return. You pivot to the whimpering man under the log and speak to him in a deep gravelly voice. "Your kind will leave my land or be Devoured. Do as I say, or perish on my claws." (Do you have the head still? or did you eat it? If so, please tell me if you wave it in his face.)
>>170162We still have the head. Weave it!
>>170162Wave the head, then take a loud slow bite.
>>170185>>170186You follow this up with showing him the severed head on your spike claw. He screams "Billy John NOOOO!" and then you rub the severed head on his face for a bit them ever so slowly crunch it in your mouth. Billy John is still as delicious as you remembered.

Most of the lumberjacks here are the same. he says "But now, I have a truer purpose! I shall serve you, oh lord, and gather my comrades to serve as well. If it is your wish, I will help you drive the kings men from this holy land!" Snot bubbles at his nose, and tear tracks on his cheeks, your first worshiper is rather.. shitty.

I hope everyone liked it and is wanting more later. Please give me any advice or complaints you may have so I can work on progressing. this is my first quest so I have lots to learn.
>>170403Thanks for running.

>>170415>>170414Glad you guys liked it! I don't have a twitter yet, but I will make one. If somebody wouldn't mind archiving if they like it enough I would be grateful because I have no idea how to do it.

>>170437With any luck I will run tomorrow, though perhaps at a slower speed.
>>170589cool senpai, i'll keep tabs on /qst/ for it.
>>170600Just got back home, and I made a thing! https://twitter.com/beetlelord
>>170839thanks for running OP, love games like thesewill there be ways to focus our mutations? If we ate a rust monster, for example, could we gain it's rusting powers?
>>170926This is your QM saying that I will have to work out a system for that, but it would makr sense. You are still gaining your powers, so you will likely get better at it. I don't think you will be getting an awesome mutation every time you eat a thing, but sometimes it will happen for a super cool fight or fantastic role. This has been brought to you by insomnia, the sleep killer.
>>171528Resources are divided into two groups. Parts database and currency to purchase them. Unlocking parts/mutations come via thievery or evolutionary pressure. Kill a foe with a biological feature, and you'll unlock his parts. Endure long enough in a specific hostile environment, and receive a new mutation like Cold Resistance I: survive in a tundra long enough and at his discretion OP allows unlocking antifreeze glycoproteins, which are spread via bloodstream and latch onto ice crystals, preventing their growth and accumulating them in the spleen organ until they can be thawed. You're slow, but you don't freeze completely, or risk death. Upgrade II allows sweating an external coat of gylcoproteins so you stop giving any fucks at all.The currency is accumulated over time via actions. Eat, win fights, reach objectives, get experimented upon, find a new type of terrain, survive near death experience, get currency to spend on your growing list of parts. Most parts cost roughly the same (some still more expensive than others) and the main global price inflation occurs each time you make a new purchase. This allows OP to constantly play with the prices to keep things balanced at his discretion, without long term commitments.
>>172139I'm not sure we need a detailed system like that. It also doesn't really make sense to have a nonspecific currency where we could do a bunch of achievements, and then experience something unrelated once and immediately evolve it with the currency we saved up.I think just getting upgrades when the OP decides our beetle has experienced enough to warrant a mutation is fine. Basically, we keep the part where we can get potential mutations from the creatures we meet and the conditions we endure, but we get them when we've done enough to "level up". And if we've experienced something enough to understand it to some degree, we can attempt to force our mutation in that direction.
>>172139I like this senpai.
>>172249Well, wouldn't call it nonspecific. It's xp/evolution points essentially, and not really different from what you described. OP can just write that you feel an urge to cocoon up, go take a nap, feel a change is coming, etc. From a story perspective not necessarily linked to the event we just completed, but from a technical point it is.Not really detailed either. Just an updated list of mutations with a vague description and benefits, with an invented cost and evolution/xp points you get every now and then. If each item on the list at first costs 10-20 points, and you get 3-5 points per event, the second purchase could cost 30-40 on average. It's simple, fits the story, lets players choose, and most importantly easy to implement since OP doesn't commit to anything so no need for number sheets and worry about balance.
>>172354Eh, I would prefer if they costed less, or scaled for less.
>>172363Well, whole point is that numbers are pulled out of OP's ass with ease.
>>172367Well, I guess. What's the worst that could happen
>>172354By putting in actual numbers, you're limiting the OP's control over when evolution events happen by essentially saying "you have to have this many events happen before we evolve so we can afford the next upgrade" and "you can only have this many events happen because we will have enough to evolve after that".And if everything costs about the same, how is that any different than just "level up, pick a mutation"?If you want it so that the OP doesn't have to commit to anything, the simplest solution is to just let the OP decide when they want mutations to happen within the story instead of trying to force set mechanics onto it.
When is OP back?
>>173510I think the OP should control when we mutate and stuff, but we should ultimately control WHAT we mutate into.
>>173608Well, yeah. We're already rolling to see if we get extra bonuses with our mutations, it's not much more to add in that we can also say what kind of base mutation we want to go for. OP probably would've already allowed that anyway if anybody had actually suggested something.
>>171528Good qst, keep the good work
