    >10138220 Continued

    >Move closer, charge
    You continue insulting the mage's mother while moving forward, then lunge forward into a breakneck speed charge. The man is clearly shocked at the sudden change in your behavior (and unbelievable speed), but not badly enough to stop him from letting off his readied spell. As you bolt past the 25 foot mark, you see him speak a final trigger word. No time to do anything but finish the charge now--
    >1d20+4=9 Will save
    Suddenly, you don't see a scrawny man in too many belts, he's--that thing from last night's dreams. Right in front of you! There! The thing that stalked, that lingered in the shadows, that drove you as its quarry and toyed with you until--

    You shake your head and snap out of it, noticing now that you're in the middle of sprinting headlong away from the safe house. You're now about 310 feet away from the door.

    I'm not sure if shooting a crossbow bolt would, um, work. For one, he has fort saves, and for two, we have shit chance to hit anyway. It's probably best to keep a line-of-sight blocker in range, charge him, and run away if anything stronger confronts us.

    There are none nearby the house. It was evidently chosen for its distance from other buildings, making it easy to keep an eye on and watch for intruders.

    >I do believe we run towards the man, good sir.
    Speaking of the mage... he's not outside. You don't see the hawk either, but it could be hiding somewhere out of your line of sight.

    They were hired to catch a thing eating people, not a mustachioed duck farmer. If we say we heard a woman's scream from inside an abandoned building, they'd scramble people there asap.

    These guys:
    #1. Burnt an apartment building, killing a person.
    #2. Kidnapped one apartment resident.
    #3. Are squatting on some abandoned land.
    #4. Are hurting someone inside that abandoned building
    #5. Are at least moderately strong adventurers.

    Guard Rush.
    Claire is, unfortunately, dead. Fortunately, we are not. I'd say it's about time we found a Hunter, tracked some creatures to give us upgrades (Leopards are nice for pounce + rake), and come back later.

    You hear another scream as you leave, longer this time. Off to a guard station. You realize that if you're going to get them to check before the sword-for-hires move locations, you're going to have to go with them to the safe house.

    Pounce lets you full attack (2 claws + bite) after a charge (1 bite, most likely).
    Rake lets you attack with claws during a pounce.
    So a Pounce is effectively 5 claws and 1 bite or 4 claws and 2 bites.
    That scales damn well with claw damage, so something with powerful claws (e.g. a Brown Bear) will boost power quite well. Only trouble is killing the damn brown bear

    Getting in melee range of something we admire the melee capabilities of is ... not very bright. Filling it with 200 bolts as we bounce from treetop to treetop might result in the brown bear tipping the tree over. Running around outside its 85ft charge range can also work but the Bear might attempt to use cover or retreat.

    Probably outside his control. I'm sure he'll be back with a vengeance to make up for lost time.

    Seriously though, let's not get ourselves killed over Clare, or anything else for that matter. We're currently still very much fragile - the right crit could end us outright. Our potential is too much to squander. These petty creatures we have been devouring are nothing next to the spoils of war which could be ours with a little patience and discretion...

    She was a liability to begin with. Even so, we should try to get to her body to devour it, and putting the guards onto the adventurers is a good idea.

    I missed the threads from tonight, but still want to give my input.

    As long as we live to NOM another day, that's all that matters. We must survive long enough for us to find strength in war.

    Just think of the battlefield dead that await us, the felled lieutenants, generals, foot soldiers, war wizards... we'd do better in one night on a battlefield after a battle than we've done up to this point

    Dude, we're too fragile to go without allies. Adventurers take on goblin mines and whatnot because they work in teams; until we start getting extra actions and whatnot, we'll need other people to support us, and Claire is an excellent example, since she's a member of a PC class.
    >> Anonymous 05/30/10(Sun)01:14 No.10148455
    Oh please, we've been going on without allies since the beginning of the game. The only thing Claire's done for us is give us a place to sleep, and eat up our morning for her petty courier job.

    You DO remember what you are. You are a blank slate, an example of limitless potential. You will survive. You will consume. You will adapt. You will grow. Given half a chance, you could be a god. But for now, you are frail, and realize that discretion is a must.

    The guard gets up from behind the desk and swiftly moves over to the door, jamming a key into the lock and bolting it closed. Locked to both inside and without.

    "If you wish for answers I have none, I've been actively feeding for ::insert length of time:: ((less than a week if I'm not mistaken))"

    also lets try to get some info as well things like:
    * how long has he been active
    * is his distance absorbing natural or is it something he gained.
    * would he be willing to fight some adventurers with us and split the biomass.

    All I know is that I exist. I have no memories since I started eating.

    Now, tell me, what is the nature of your hunger?

    My creation? Unfortunately, that is a mystery to me. I had no voice or intellect when I became aware, and had to gain these things from various... donors.

    honest approach time guys, hes just like us, a little more badass and a lot more curious bout our origins, but if he wanted to he could have just taken our knowledge local already.

    Sadly, that information is still denied to us as well, thought we share your curiousity. From your question, I assume you know not of your creation's purpose either. A pity. Well... what do you think of potentially working together? As in, working to cover each-other's tracks, and maintaining a code of keeping each-other's existence a secret, should we individually fail to stay hidden?

    Remember guys Claire is also in a building with adventures being like tortured or something so lets not be have a slow chat, actually I say we ask him to help us and he gets half of the body's, but not Claire's she lives and comes with us. Then we can arrange a meeting to talk at another point when things are not so heated.

    Nah, she's likely dead.

    Anyway, waiting will make the adventurers' guards go down.

    most of us are of the opinion that she is already dead.

    it was fun while it lasted but the adventurers probably panicked and killed her.

    but i think we are hungry for revenge though.

    Not really. Hungry, but only because it's four strong people we can eat, plus one appetizer.

    Our hunger drives me to consume my prey, whole. Making a meal of freshly dead prey provides me with the opportunity to take aspects of them into myself. As I do this, I grow more powerful.

    I don't think Claire is dead. At the very least, we can't assume she's dead yet; we have no evidence that she is, and they're not dead until you see the body. She very well might still be alive and just be being tortured, in which case rescuing her is imperative.

    Also, odds are both of us were experiments by one of the wizards in this town to create the ultimate weapon or something, and were discarded as failures.

    Until he swears a vow of servitude, or we are sure he won't stab us in the back, anything we tell him is something he can use against us.

    Good idea. Dibs on elven ranger. Get proficiency in all martial weapons, and then trade up our crossbow for a longbow, that we can apply our Strength modifier to.
