    106 KB Spooky Zerg Quest II Cerebrate Anon 10/28/10(Thu)21:16 No.12604918  

    Spooky Halloween Spectacular continues!

    Master Sergeant Crucis Dyles has not been having a good day. Awoken at 0225 in the morning, you were informed of contacts in the tunnel under Lockston that does not officially exist. It soon became apparent that 30,000 Zerg were on their way through said tunnel.

    Rousing the 100 troops at your disposal, you mined and fortified the entrance to the tunnel. When the Zerg burst through, they did rushed the line. Your inexperienced and very tired troops did not hold the line properly. Panicking, you detonated the mines, collapsing the tunnel. At least half of the Zerg were slaughtered.

    This should have been good news.

    A tidal wave of screams erupted through your skull. Thousands of Zerg voices echo through your mind. It is the worst thing that has ever happened to you.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/28/10(Thu)21:20 No.12604962
    The screams recede from your consciousness at about the same time that your eyes and ears recover from the blast. There is still scattered gunfire as your soldiers finish off the last Zerg that made it out.

    Your skin crawls inside your power armor.

    Your suit detects the ashen debris thrown up by the explosion, and automatically lowers your visor, allowing you to breathe through the filtration system.

    >Master sergeant

    Fuck... I'm an enlisted man? Is there any chance I can call in an officer? Somebody with an Academy education would be way better at dealing with this whole, horrors of the forgotten corners of the universe shit. He, or she, would probably have a better sense of fashion too.

    Get on the radio, ask if there's any chance of getting someone of the officer class to help. Combat experience isn't a must, but a sky-high IQ would be great.

    You did. Evac in two days.

    The ones that had their visors down were unaffected. Those that didn't, like you, had some disorientation from the flash and the bang. A few of them are holding their heads.

    You leave behind orders to guard the hole, and make your way to CentOps. It's only 0315, and you've got a meeting with the civilian governor at 0830, but you doubt you'll be getting much sleep anyway. Your eyes are sore the way they always get when you're sleep-deprived.

    CentOps is still on an alert footing, but it doesn't look like anything more is happening. Fallone and Kilroy alternate reporting in that the mound of rock that used to be the tunnel opening remains sealed. Motion trackers show nothing. One of the support staff had the bright idea to grab one of the portable seismograph machines from the tech storage. The base is technically a science outpost, after all.

    You leave Fallone in charge as you head to the mess hall. You hadn't realized how starved you were.

    You step into the hall, and nobody is there but the rat, Megalisk. It stands stock still, watching you. Creepy, but right now you're more interested in what feels like a sinkhole in your belly. You heat up two servings of rations. The good kind. The stuff the high-ranking officers' staff would eat if there were high-ranking officers, here.

    You open your visor and begin shoveling food into your mouth. In what seems like mere seconds, your plate is empty. You are still hungry.

    Medical's probably off-duty right now. We could hit up her quarters. First, though, we want to finish up this second helping of rations.

    Oh, there's only one Medical staffer in the complex. The men decided it was hilarious to call her Medical, as if she were an entire branch of ops by herself. It stuck.

    Check what's happening on the frontlines. Get a report from Fallone on the fortifications and whatnot. Also ask if any civvies might've seen the fireworks down there.

    But more donuts first. Maybe we can invent the powered donut and use it for a variety of useful, non-donut intended functions. Like the psi-high-five!

    If there are somewhere around 30k zerglings or so as a conservative estimate, they'll have to sleep in their armor or something if they want to rest.

    Ask about Kilroy. Has he reported anything interesting?
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/28/10(Thu)22:03 No.12605364
    Rotation is fine, as long as that site is watched at all times
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/28/10(Thu)22:05 No.12605396
    You inform Fallone that rotations for sleep are fine, but they will have to be on full alert, which means no removing armor between shifts. Fallone and Kilroy both agree.

    Coming down with what?

    Well, Medical DOES kind of cause the blood to boil. Maybe that IS it...

    "I think I may have a fever, Medical. I thought maybe we could work out a way to keep me warm," you say without thinking.

    There is a tense moment of silence, during which you are filled half with confusion as to why you said that, and anxiety over how she'll take it. Sexual harassment's not exactly unheard-of in the military (most of the military is made up of resocs, after all), but harassing somebody under your command while the base is on alert status? That might cause problems if she reported it.

    Those worries slide away as she begins laughing out loud, tilting her head back.

    "I've been here a full 18 months, and you just charge up one day with THAT line?! Ha! Oh, Sarge, that's so ridiculous, I'm willing to let you keep trying. Come in."

    You enter Medical's quarters, and immediately narrow your eyes. They are nearly twice the size of yours. You are the commanding officer. This is a disturbing development.

    This is completely driven from your head when you notice that Medical is laying on her bed, watching you. You toss off another line, something really cheesy about arbiters. She chuckles quietly, rolling her eyes.

    You walk as proudly as you can to the bed. Her chest is heaving and the air is thick with the smell of her desire. You crawl slowly across the bed, stopping over her. She looks up at you with nothing but animal passion.

    You slide your hands up over her hips, her abdomen, her breasts. She squirms in anticipation. Your hands continue up to her neck, brushing lightly across her smooth skin before they tear her trachea from her throat. You see her eyes widen in terror and pain before your face descends into the wound, feasting on the still-pumping life's blood as her soul slips away.

    You don't feel quite so hungry, anymore.

    You hear a tiny scream reverberate through your skull.

    As the body stops twitching, you look down at it. Despite the gore and the fact that it is pale with lack of blood, the carcass is still rather attractive. If she looked like this and were still alive, you'd probably go through with it anyway.

    As soon as you think that, the body's legs move to wrap around your waist. Her dead eyes lighten, renewing their lust even while smeared with blood.

    What if this isn't ACTUALLY a zerg plague/spore/infestation/what have you, and is actually something TOTALLY different and we're totally overlooking something obvious?

    The zerg were sickly right? I wonder if they ran out of shit to kill to sate their hunger? Or if they were all killed by something else, and using them as puppets to mask their dark schemes?
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/28/10(Thu)23:11 No.12606286
    You realize the chip has been buzzing...shaking, really, for some time. You should be screaming in the fetal position, right now. After a split-second's contemplation, the chip shifts, then you feel a sharp pain before something very small and gooey starts sliding down the back of your neck.

    All of that takes a back seat, though, as you continue what we thought we were getting on this bed to do in the first place. As you move, absorbed in the passion, we start to notice that Medical's gurgles are more distinct. We roll, putting her on top, just as she begins to moan. Looking up, we notice that her throat is mostly intact, again.

    A few minutes later, she has collapsed onto our chest. We feel...odd. We imagine her waking and standing, and she does. We begin to notice an afterimage.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/28/10(Thu)23:12 No.12606290
    Interesting theory. We should experiment with Medical, and I mean that in a scientific way, to see just what we can do with her. Then maybe nom Killroy and send him to the facility to look around. Granted there'd have to be some digging.

    We envision her saying "The Intelligence line is 225 Epsilon," something she would not know. She says it, exactly as we desired. We try to think of something medical that she should know, but we draw a blank. It seems that we did not take her thoughts, just her body.

    Oh well, if word gets to the rescue team that infestation is loose, they'll just wipe us out from orbit. In the interest of survival, we should sabotage communications.

    Though we obviously have no way of making use of Medical's personal knowledge and personality ourselves, can we make her act as though she is perfectly fine? Have we created an actual thinking slave with all her pre-existing talents intact here, or just a mindless homonculus?

    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)00:54 No.12607433
    Thinking about the situation, we decide to dress and head to Medbay with Medical. We have Medical call the first marine on the list to come to Medbay for an examination. He pisses and moans, but comes anyway.

    While we wait for him, we slip to the side and pick up several of the sedative slap-patches used in combat surgery to anesthetize patients. We could use these to subdue the men, but that might make them less than useful until it wears off. Who knows if they'd recover faster, like Medical did. This might even keep them from healing. Bodies would be hard to explain.

    How are we going to do this?

    Well, he's now the villain, so it's actually kind of fitting.

    It's only been like 30 minutes since we nommed Medi in her quarters. Maybe 2.5 hours since we woke up.

    Are we still in our armor? If so, when the marines come in, make them de-suit, then knock em out/nom them when they can't effectively fight back.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)00:59 No.12607485
    Have Medi ask a series of questions. Routine stuff: any headaches, nausea, change in appetite, dizziness, shortness of breath, ect. Then, if applicable, have them remove their armour to check for any rashes. If it seems like they don't have what we have, or anything else for that matter, release them. If they have the same thing as us, have them be kept for observation, i.e. quarantine.

    You're an idiot, we're the monster now, I think Kilroy was SUPPOSED to be.


    Nom each one as they come in, then send em back to their sleeping hole after a little bit. Make sure to clean up each time.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:06 No.12607571
    We can always infect them later. I'd rather get control of this whatever it is before noming everyone in the base. It'd be a problem if all of the people who were there start acting different after going to the medbay for a checkup.

    Alright, so are you using the patches when you devour them, or not?

    Yes, we are the horrible monster, but that's no reason be be dumb about it. We can do something other than nom every person we meat on the spot. If there is someone else how wants to nom people I want to deal with it promptly. There can be only one supreme nomer here, and it's us.

    Clearly my suggestion to use caution and a bit of guile is being ignored. But I suppose marines don't have much in the way of personality anyway. Just don't nom all of them.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:13 No.12607648
    You can interview and select, but telling me how you intend to nom them is somewhat central.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:16 No.12607692
    Nom the bigger and dumber marines, also anyone who seem to have what we have. I see no reason why there couldn't be another, and I don't want to get into a war with another whatever we are. If noming doesn't work on it try and detain, if that doesn't work kill it. We'll deal with that problem later. Unless it wants to make a deal, negotiation is fine.
    >> Anonymous 10/29/10(Fri)01:17 No.12607697

    Use the patch on the ones that were possibly exposed, use mindfuckery on the normals(ie: Make them want to fuck us for easy nomming.)
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:19 No.12607722
    Come to think of it we have no way of knowing how easy it would be to control more minions. After a certain point they might just start shuffling. We should be cautious.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:23 No.12607754
    Also, we could call them back in for a followup examination later, so there is no real rush in noming them.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:25 No.12607764
    We invite the marines to Medbay for an exam one-by-one. After a few dicey encounters, we get the hang of pacifying them beforehand. Only one of them is obviously lusting for us, but that's not really important. Some of them were showing obvious warning signs that they were having a similar, if much milder experience. Their minds offer no more or less sustenance than the rest.

    Within 2 hours, we have possessed all 20 of them. The screams that bellow through our minds as they die nourish us. There are 80 more down in the trenches, but they will have to wait. Now, we have another decision.

    We have a meeting scheduled with the civilian governor in about 5 minutes. We can remove the blood from our armor and be there in time, but he will be definitely put on edge if we show up in full combat armor. If we take the time to remove it, we will be late.

    Or, we could just not go. Of course, this meeting would be the best time to inform the civilians that they will be evacuating the settlement in a day and a half. Or, to devour the governor. There ARE 2,000 people outside, after all...
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:26 No.12607771
    Sorry, I didn't see these. Thankfully, I don't intend for them to become shambling zombies after just 20 additions. We seem to be controlling 22 bodies as well as we controlled 2.

    Show up in blood spattered power Armour and tell the Governor just how much shit we had to kick in to save his ass.

    Can we inform the governor we'll be late due to Fallone being a goddamn fucking retard with his alerting us at 2 in the goddamn morning for a GODDAMN FUCKING SENSOR MALFUNCTION?(Since Governor DeliciousMeal doesn't need to know what happened.)
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:31 No.12607831
    Well, that noming went off without a hitch, I must say I'm surprised, but then again this isn't regular zerg quest. I think we can hold off on noming the civilians for now. I don't think they could do much about being nomed by someone in power armour. How late would we be to the meeting? We should go to it and tell the Governor that Tarsonis has decided to relocate the local populous and the garrison. When he ask why just shrug.

    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:37 No.12607887
    We contact the governor and tell him we'll be a little late due to technical difficulties at the base. He asks if it's serious. We tell him it's just a minor issue that's really irritating. He chuckles. Asshole.

    We take the time to remove our armor, and head to the meeting.

    (From all the nicknames, can I assume you are all wanting to eat this morsel?)
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:37 No.12607889
    We should find out what happens when one of our minions noms on someone.
    >> Anonymous 10/29/10(Fri)01:38 No.12607902

    Not quite yet, as we don't want to tip anyone off.

    We should wait on eating Governor Food until we've gone full-on horror from the deep and are acting openly. No sense in making anyone nervous/suspicious.
    >> TUCAMP Rep. 10/29/10(Fri)01:40 No.12607918
    Eventually, but not right now. For now he can organize the cattle into groups to help expedite the noming... I mean evacuation. There's probably committees and agencies and groups etc that he'll have to talk to to get the evacuation in motion, and we can't get memories with the noms, so he's spared for now. Nome base, then civilians.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:51 No.12607992
    We carefully consider matters, and decide that it's simply too early to devour the governor.

    We go to the meeting in dress uniform. He's chipper and jovial, as always. We reconsider eating him at all. He might make us vomit. Still, we're almost bursting with the blood and souls of our underlings, and that makes it so much easier to listen to him babble on.

    After what time seems appropriate, we bring the meeting to business: We received word just before the meeting that the Confederacy is abandoning Lockston. A battlecruiser will arrive in a day and a half to take us off-planet.

    His cheerful attitude drops away. He is apoplectic. We're forcing him to leave his HOME? We inform him that we have no choice in the matter, and neither does he. With Chancellor Kingston's strategic reformation laws, he could assign us to serve on the surface of a sun, and we'd have no recourse to object or appeal.

    The man rants and raves for nearly an hour before he lets us leave, promising to contact our superiors and take this all the way to the Chancellor, if he has to.

    We leave. Staying in the room with him now is even more grating than when he was happy. We hadn't thought that possible. Still, we look over our shoulder as we leave, grin deeply, and tell him, "Before we're shipped off in different directions, you and I really ought to get together for a bite."

    (Damn, guys. We spent hours longer on Medical than I expected. We'll have to continue this later. Monday, same time?)

    Works for me. For a one shot this is taking a long time. If this keeps up it might become a full blown quest. But, Wednesday night should be regular Zerg Quest. I want to see what Berniebrate does.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/29/10(Fri)01:58 No.12608058
    Wednesday will definitely be regular Zerg Quest. A bit short, since I am again working the next morning, though (two weeks in a row. That's really odd).

    Also, this SideQuest ends when you A) Die and/or B) get evacuated. Feel free to begin speculating on how it will affect the larger Quest canon. >:)

    WAHAHAHA I've been here since ZQ7 and I'd never read ZQ2...I thought you guys had simply forgotten to do so while it was running and got 404'd. I've done that on a couple of my threads by accident. "Hey, this has been a really good discussion. I'll archive it. 404? fuck! I hope someone else did!"
    20 minutes later, I realise my hopes are dashed, and I haven't updated the html for an hour. Failure, failure all around!
