    The reports of my liver failure are greatly exaggerated. I mean, I'm trying, but it's just so damn resilient. *There's a pause here where I took a long drink.*

    Anyway, I was banned on three separate computers for trying to tell you guys what happened. What's up with that?

    So, no flowery language that could cause a repeat, despite how well it hid part of what was going on.

    Crashing battlecruiser passed its check, and crashed into the orbital platform, which is now, itself, crashing.

    One carrier blew another in half as it tried to warp out of the system. The trauma ripped it into several hundred thousand small pieces.

    All but one battlecruiser is completely destroyed. That last one escapes.

    We survived with more forces intact than expected. Protoss radio chatter is panicked.
    >> TUCAMP 12/21/11(Wed)20:51 No.17293999
    Tell the protoss, "Sorry about that, some of them seemed to have gotten through," then leave. If they want answers, they have to ask nicely.

    And you should know better then to try to fight a ban with your liver.

    Alright, let's leave one overlord in the system to talk.

    But we should still be smug

    Any chance on tracking the lone escaping BC?
    >> TUCAMP 12/21/11(Wed)21:10 No.17294190
    I was half serious, in that I felt like I needed to post something so you didn't get lonely and think everyone abandoned you, and I was never too keen on this plan anyway. Since the toss had problems dealing with this surprise attack, I figure we should just make enough zergleks to fill a highliner, and use it to purge Dyles' planets.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 12/21/11(Wed)21:15 No.17294230
    Tracking the battlecruiser is unlikely.

    As our combat forces begin to leave the system, the Protoss chatter becomes even more despondent. Some of them cry that they are being abandoned, that we have destroyed the enemy just to stand by and watch them die.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/21/11(Wed)21:15 No.17294235
    I really don't think zergleks are powerful enough for that. If I recall, they were estimated to have firepower on par with siege tanks when they were first created

    In any case, if we can't catch that escaped BC, we should start gearing up to hit Dyles where he lives. We should also send a warning to Kerrigan to be on the lookout for his BC, in case he decides to try to hit Moria or Tarsonis in an attempt to build a power base here.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/21/11(Wed)21:17 No.17294246
    Can we stop that crashing platform? We should at least make an attempt, in the interest of improving our relations with the protoss.

    >> TUCAMP 12/21/11(Wed)21:19 No.17294259
    Oh fine then, help them out by trying to stabilize the platform. Comment that they shouldn't be having these problems, what with their "voodoo crystal magics or sum such".
    >> TUCAMP 12/21/11(Wed)21:24 No.17294294
    Siegetank is an ok estimate, I think, but then again they're only the size of a marine and can fly. Do you know how many of those we can cram in the volume of a capital ship? Certainly more than a breadbox. But, I think sending in a fleet to take care of orbital defenses, followed by scouring the planet with zergleks will work. Unless the planet is beyond colonizing, then we nuke/glass it.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/21/11(Wed)21:30 No.17294361
    True, but we also only have one planet capable of producing zergleks. Even with all these weeks of presumably continued construction, we probably won't have enough cleanse a planet, let alone the numerous number of planets Dyles controls.

    I suppose we could try to take a planet and experiment on how to reverse his alterations, but he probably won't let us sit there trying to figure out how to kill him
    >> Cerebrate Anon 12/21/11(Wed)21:31 No.17294365
    >*sigh* FINE, we'll prevent a KT Event-like global extinction!

    With an almost belabored mien, we direct hundreds of mantalisks under the platform. They attempt to push the craft up from below as overlords find grips and pull from the top. We manage to stabilize the platform long enough to send a demand for repair teams to the Protoss, who quickly scramble to oblige. It takes a few hours, but joint efforts get the platform back into orbit. Whether that orbit will keep, and whether the platform will ever function properly again is anybody's guess, but the Protoss can't deny that we just saved their asses. Twice.

    We perfunctorily reply to their gratitude that we have parasitic monsters to kill, and our forces warp away.

    We feel like that went well enough.

    While loading our Zergleks into a heighliner, we bring Pauldronlisk out of mothballs (not literally, of course. That would dry out its carapace) and set course for Aiur.

    "Considering recent events, we decided to make ourselves available, should the First Born desire to speak with us, or have questions."

    After a few minutes, the commander we were speaking to tells us that Dapperjunior is to be escorted to a landing site on Aiur.

    After the guided landing (during which we fervently spy on Zerg World, still in a relatively stable orbit and seemingly untouched by Protoss forces), Pauldronlisk comes to a public forum. Several hundred Protoss fill the seating area. We are told to wait.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/21/11(Wed)23:20 No.17295323
    Nothing we can really do but wait, I guess. Pauldronlisk should get out a folding fan and appear completely relaxed.

    >> Cerebrate Anon 12/21/11(Wed)23:54 No.17295698
    We consider employing rapid mutation to give Pauldronlisk a chitinous fan for effect, but decide against it. Fans an pauldrons might not look great together, and this is hardly the place to be experimenting with that sort of thing. Pauldronlisk has a reputation to uphold.

    After about twenty minutes, Khas and Tassadar arrive to applause. Khas continues to be dressed minimally, as if he were a commoner who just happened to be Primarch of the Protoss Empire. Hierarch Tassadar, on the other hand, stands tall in his ceremonial Templar armor (complete with pauldrons that, while smaller than Pauldronlisk's, make up for it in embellishments describing accomplishments. We're not sure what all of them mean, but they are impressive nonetheless). A third Protoss, in simpler Templar armor and substantially younger than the others, takes up a similar place to Tassadar on Khas' other side.

    The two leaders take up places of prominence on the stage, with Pauldronlisk in a nearby but lower place (our knowledge of Protoss culture indicates that there isn't an established heirarchy for diplomats, as the Protoss were not in the habit of speaking to 'lesser' races. It's likely that the Protoss are just unsure as to how a diplomat should be treated, much less a diplomat who is literally inhabited by the mind of a foreign leader).

    Fenix, Praetor of the Templar caste, steps up in simple zealot armor, and a harmonic chime sounds, silencing conversation, as his amplified voice rings over the crowd.

    We express our gratitude for the honor of being involved in such an assembly. Tassadar blurts out, almost the second we finish, "The Swarm is TOLERATED at this assembly, but your actions are incredibly suspect. I daresay, even damning."

    Khas cuts him off with a glance, and addresses the crowd. "Before we question the motives of the Swarm, we must discuss the conditions of our assembly. Today, Gyras was attacked by the sentience known to us as Dyles--"

    "--A name we know only from the Swarm! A species we know only through the Swarm!" interjects a bulky-looking Protoss with what appears to be a prosthetic arm.

    "True enough. Nevertheless, our garrison at Gyras was attacked by this entity, and a large contingent of Zerg forces appeared to fight them off, and saved the Gyras shipyards from catastrophic collision with the surface."

    Tassadar seizes the moment to speak. "And how, exactly, did the Swarm react so swiftly? How did the Swarm know TO react?"
    >> TUCAMP 12/22/11(Thu)00:28 No.17296057
    We negotiated with the terran homeworld, and are in the process of eradicating the Dyles entity. Some of their forces slipped through. It's hard to keep track of things spending two weeks at warp.

    One of our exploring overlords spotted their fleet *some random distance outside the Koprulu sector* and managed to trail them stealthily for several jumps before being spotted and destroyed.

    A fleet of such size is clearly out for conquest or destruction. We extrapolated likely targets across the sector based on the direction of their warp jumps and deployed our forces so they could respond relatively quickly to an attack.

    Frankly, we would have intervened sooner, but we expected them to come after our own worlds, rather than one of yours.

    Pauldronlisk turns sharply to Tassadar.

    "We knew to strike because we have been tracking this vile creature. We responded quickly because we were prepared to defend the Koprulu Sector against this danger. We placed ourselves as a substantial risk in order to defend the Protoss assets at Gyras, and we have asked nothing in return but your goodwill, which you have denied us in favor of blind insinuations. Be not so swift to condemn us, Cousin."

    We notice Tassadar (and several of the other Protoss) bristle at being called cousins of the Swarm, despite the clear familial bonds between us.

    "More to the point," speaks up Artanis, his voice lighter than Tassadar's, and carrying just a hint of Khas' religious air, "I would like to know how this entity learned of Gyras in the first place. Was it happenstance, or is our entire Empire at risk?"

    Some bustling and murmuring spreads through the Conclave.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/22/11(Thu)01:08 No.17296461
    Yes we're a force to be reckoned with, but we don't have the power to fight both Dyles and the protoss at the same time. It would be stupid to pick a fight with the protoss if they're willing to be civil, and we lose nothing by acting humble and repentant.

    Of course, we will finish off Dyles (and possibly the UED) someday and we will be able to turn our full attention to bringing the First Born into the glory of the Swarm. But that's a ways down the line.

    And all of our infested protoss died when we lost control of our brood when the Overmind died. There hasn't been an opportunity to infest new protoss because we've been dealing with other shit and we don't have time to pick anotehr fight with the protoss

    "Oh... I just assumed I was the only one. He dishonors you too Master Khas?"

    Sabotage through innocent means. Need anything else be said?
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/22/11(Thu)01:52 No.17296937
    "Everything in that direction" includes all of our territory. It would be easier to supply them with the coordinates of one of Dyles's worlds and let them investigate it for themselves

    You dont know that and he was being figurative anyway.

    And I approve of this plan. Maybe they will even meet the terra terrans and see that we /do/ have nice relationships with other races.

    But this reminds me, are out colonization waves still going in the general direction of earth, because we should probable be heading in a direction that isn't full of things that currently, or in the future might, want to kill us. And that new cartography system should really speed things up I suspect.

    Note to swarm: infiltrate UED so that a UED-Protoss war breaks out after Dyles is killed.

    Removing any information about our colonies first, I don't see why not.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/22/11(Thu)02:04 No.17297043
    Figurative or not, our territory is between the protoss and Dyles. If they send out their forces, they're almost certainly going to stumble across some of our worlds. So far our biggest advantage and greatest defence is that no one knows where our territory is. No one know where our worlds are. If the protoss are gearing up for an invasion, we should start looking for some backup sites well outside our current borders.
    >> TUCAMP 12/22/11(Thu)02:06 No.17297053
    With the clarification that it's incomplete, since the UED only told us about planets that were irredeemably lost, and more Dyles in the general direction of earth.

    Yes. Lets keep with the theme of the most effective session of this quest in recent history and agree on this.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/22/11(Thu)02:12 No.17297111
    They may decide to drop out to get their bearings, drop some listening posts or even establish outposts. The protoss are heavily introverted and this is going to be the first time they've left their sector. I see no reason why they wouldn't want to be overly cautious on this expedition and try to find out as much as possible about the route they're going to be traveling for weeks so it can remain secure for future use.
    >> Codeki 12/22/11(Thu)02:15 No.17297140
    If that's the case, we should scout out some planets nearby that are more habitable for the protoss.
    Zerg like Molten worlds and alot of the worlds that other species don't like, so we could find some for them to keep them away from where they're not supposed to be.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 12/22/11(Thu)02:17 No.17297162
    Actually the zerg like any planet that will support us. It just so happens that highly volcanic planets fall into that category

    >implying the discovery of Ludicrous Speed wasn't effective

    (Hey, man. Free body heat. One less biological function to keep track of. We don't have an autonomous nervous system to keep track of this shit, so whatever lessens the burden on our central mind...)

    After several minutes' lively discussion, we finally bring forward a sign of good faith: the coordinates of three medium-sized Dyles-controlled worlds in UED space. Tassadar, of course, regards this as a complex set-up, an ambush. Khas appears reticent to trust us with a weeks-long journey involving a sizable portion of his fleet.

    Artanis, however, argues in our favor. "Primarch, I may be inexperienced, but if an ally comes to our aid and then provides us, for free, the location of our enemies' homes, we would be fools to spit in their faces and distrust them. Heirarch Tassadar is might indeed, and his suspicion is justly shared by every living Protoss, but we cannot let resentment cloud our judgment!"

    Tassadar, in turn, delivers a short speech on the untrustworthiness of the Swarm. He mentions the slaughter of billions of Protoss right here, during the Battle of Aiur. He makes reference to the proud sacrifice of Feneschal for the good of the Empire. He reminds the Protoss of the loss of the Dark Ones, on the eve of their return to the whole. Even while we are guided by the crystals of our forebears, he intones, we much be mindful to become nothing so small as they became, or so easily deceived. Allying with the Zerg, he argues, is what destroyed the Xel'Naga. He suggests that we not make their same mistake.

    Is there a way we could bring a few of them over in one of our super carriers so they don't have to take our word on it, without them figuring out what we're using technology wise?

    We should mention that we had nothing to do with the deaths of the dark templars, that was the human tyrant, Kingston, whom we have dealt with. Futhermore, we should also mention the billions of zerg lives lost, including our brother cerebrates and the Overmind. Leave the past behind us, look forward, etc, etc.

    Oh, don't forget that we reunited them with that tribe of perma-archons entirely selflessly.

    After considerable debate, and not a small number of unkind words from Tassadar and a few of his supporters, a vote is tallied. The majority stands in support of sending forces to UED space to combat Dyles. We aren't sure of the Protoss system of government, but it seems like the final vote between the Primarch and Heirarchs has at least as much weight as that of the Conclave. Tassadar, as expected, stands against us. Artanis stands in support of us (which encouraging, since we had not met him before). Both turn in unison to face Khas, awaiting his final decision. After a few moments' silence, he indicates his support of our intelligence.

    The Protoss have officially entered our war with Dyles.
