    You are a little female jumping spider named Bibi who used to live inside a turned over can in a shed with your mate Dorpou and your sack of eggs. In the last session the shed was invaded by mindbogglingly massive creature, that killed your mother and most of her brood in it's rampage. You and Dorpou decided that the shed was no longer safe, and after quickly gathering your eight surviving siblings, some resources and your eggs, you started your exodus with your loyal pet centipede Isaac.

    The outside word was alien, and the only seemingly safe place in sight was a hole in a tree, to which you started moving. On your way, you encountered a ladybug that was being assailed by a small group of ants. After rescuing him, he introduced himself as Andor the Aphid Eater, but he also made you know his many other names as well. He offered to fly you to your destination, as according to him, he was now honor-bound to aid you.

    In the tree-hole, you encountered an old and apparently lonely spider, who agreed to let you live inside the hole, provided that you would share some food with him. After quickly building a rudimentary web nest for yourself and your now quite large family, you and your mate are resting near it, waiting for your eggs to hatch. Andor is also resting nearby, as carrying all of you and your stuff was quite laborious. The old spider is in his web. Your siblings and Isaac are inside the nest.
    What do you do?

    >How this works.
    Suggest an action and then depending how feasible it is, the spider will act.

    You are just an ordinary spider in moder day earth. You have no special powers, other than your intellect.

    Making silk costs proteins, which you can restore by eating. Your mate has his own protein reserves. Making the nest costs you both 15 proteins, which leaves you both with 75.

    You can upgrade your nest with silk.Your nest currently has the following improvements:
    >Small rudimentary web nest:
    - web-sacks containing 24 food, 10 units of wood, 3 chitin plates and your egg-sack.

    You and Dorpou s improving your home. Dorpou builds a proper storage chamber while you lay some trip wires to warn you if some one enters the tree hole by climbing at least. It costs you 20 protein, and Dorpou 30, leaving you with 55 and Dorpou with 45.

    "I am Ranou of the Web Runner clan, though the contact between myself and my clan mates has been quite rare.
    The are surrounding the tree has plenty of hunting opportunities, the abundance of flowers attracts many fliers to this area, the tall grass provides much cover for crawling prey and the pond nearby also attracts many other insects.
    Know this however, this area is contested by the ant hordes. The flowers also attract bees, and bees attract wasps, who do not hesitate to exploit weaker creatures.

    You excuse yourself and head behind the new storage to check your spinnerets.


    While cleaning up you also make a mental note about the additional need of defense and the possibility of allying yourself with ants or wasps, though you aren't even sure what the later are.
    After finishing your "inspection", you head to the primary chamber to check your eggs.

    Everything seems to be fine inside your nest.
    The eggs are still intact, and everyone is present.
    Dorpou has apparently moved the storage sacks to the new chamber, though he has taken some food from it. 5 food units lost, Dorpou has restored 15 of his proteins, and he now has 60.

BUT....they are light so we could use them to BUILD A SLINGSHOT FOR ANDOR to carry on his back! HE WILL BE A LADYBOMBER!

    They seem to be some sort of plants. They are excreting some sort of strange smelling nectar.

    You also start contemplating the uses the giant corpse could have, but it is clear that if want to use the material, you need to find a way to break it in to smaller parts, as most of the individual bones are quite large compared to you.

    Bird's scare the shit out of everyone and are basically our apex predator.

    You ask if Ranou is willing to guard your newfound stuff in exchange of food. He gladly agrees, as he has really nothing better to do.

    You realize that, although an interesting find, the bird nest and it's loot isn't of the immediate concern.

    You finish up improving your new home for now by building few sticky web traps at the base of the tree. The traps are connected to your main nest with strings, notifying you if something has been caught.

    This costs you 35 protein, leaving you with 10. All this working has also taken it's toll on you. You have 3/5 of your energy left.

    Before you do anything about the aphids, you quickly go and grab some food. 5 food units lost, you regain 15 protein leaving you with 25 and you now have 5/5 of your energy. The storage now holds 14 units of food.
    You explain your plan to Andor.
    He says that the aphids reproduce quickly, and the to his knowledge don't even need males to produce the offspring.

    Which one will you test the nectar on. The wounded one or the healthy one?

    Tell him to salvage wood from the old birds nest if he wants. You could teach him to build slingshots later, that would be fun and helpfull. Eventually you should teach all of them to operate slingshots. More Markspiders more kills.

    Your mother instincts prevent you from bringing the obviously dangerous blue slime even near your eggs.

    Instead of infanticide, you open up the web-sack.
    The hatchling stares at you intently, most of it's body still inside the egg, it's arms waving around slowly.

    Dorpou rolls one of the web sacks containing food to the nest, and then goes hunting.
    Your siblings join you in aiding the spiderligns to hatch. They predigest the food bits for easier ingestion for the babies, and tend to them while you help them out of their eggs and lift them out of the egg-sack. Isaac is rather curious, but one of your siblings is ensuring that the centipede doesn't get too close.

    Well we live in a tree and the old spider bro is a proper web-building spider unlike us. He could teach us how to build a prober web and we could lay some web-traps between the branches to catch flying bugs etc.

    Apart from that we could ask Andor to work together with us more closely for mutual benefit. He can fly and carry us...which will greatly incerease the range in which we can hunt. We could spot potential pray from a higher up position on Andors back and when spotted we can dive in for an attack with our bolas or an slingshot in Andors back. With that tactic we should be able to secure much prey, much more then andor and we could hunt alone for ourselves. YAY FOR SYMBIOSIS!

    On top of that, if Danger arises we are much more capable of fighting it off together....and when in need we could flee much better on his back. Even if a stray wasp spots us Andor could concentrate on flying and fleeing while we could fend off the attacker from his back, again with bolas or a slingshot.

    When you get back to the nest you start building multiple slingshots. Luckily the bird's nest is made from sticks, so there is no shortage of materials. Making the slingshots costs you 10 protein, leaving you with 15.

    Right, we learn from the ants. We don't need to kill aphids to get food, aphids can be "molken" for nectar. We are using them as cattle and have to think of it for the long term too. If we can get them to reproduce.....we took the first step into civilisation. We learned herding wich will net is with a steady income of food in form of nectar and the occassional aphid. And that all without the risks of hunting.

    On top of that we can go hunting too to even bost our food production more...and a huge food production is the basis for a big family...and will net us the freedom for more aspiring projects. Like gliders to get an airforce, war carriages to crush the ants if they get cocky and so on and so on.

    You explain to Andor your multiple for the aphids.
    "If you are going to raise them like the ants, you need some food for them. I don't see many plants here, well besides the tree itself. I could perhaps help you with this project, if I get my cut of the aphids of course. I could fetch some plant stuff for them to eat. That should be easier than always fighting with the ants.

    We literally live in a tree. Carrying leaves and stuff into the aphid pen is way easier and safer then hunting.

    And if our aphid-herding plans succeed, we can offer Andor a share of the easy to get food...which will bind him even more to us and give us the opporunitiy to use his awesome services even more. Like hunting partnership and LADYBOMBER services.

    /r/ that we name the kids already.
    We have twenty kids, so there's plenty of names to go around. What do you say?

    Well it is not really Nectar, I don't know what it is called right now...but it basically is almost pure sugar. Keep it in an bowl or something like that, spit some of your predigest-vomit on it and let it do its work and after that I am very sure we can eat it. We would need bowl or other things to store it in though. We could construct them from leaves and silk I presume.

    Sounds good, and we *DO* want to take good care of Andor too.

    We're gonna be a management mogul in no time at all.

    It's going to be very hard to keep track of them anyway. Maybe name the ones that become distinctive? Make a name a right of passage or a privilege to be earned, rather than a default.

    Even our brothers and sisters weren't named by our mother yet.

    Find the smallest and biggest of your male hatchlings, and name them Ornstein and Smough, respectively.

    The pact is sealed!
    Andor will help you feed the aphids that you will protect, provided that he can eat a couple of them every now and then.
    >> Anonymous 01/21/12(Sat)18:14 No.17623141
    We should immediately train half of the hatchlings to be hunters to get a steady supply of food.

    Have them practice on aphids maybe?

    Also, train them to be Bibi's loyal guardians. Train Ornstein to use a spear, and Smough to use some sort of bludgeoning weapon.
    >> Spider Quest OP 01/21/12(Sat)18:17 No.17623160

    I am afraid that your hatchilings are far too tiny at the moment for such a task. They could hunt really tiny bugs, but the won't be any real help in your hunts for a while.

    I like this idea. I like a lot.

    I'd be more comfortable giving him a fixed percentage of all offspring, and any that become old/sterile/useless or die.

    That we he can't eat our herd into the ground.

    We are going to need to eat before we can continue any projects. When is Dorpou coming back? Also, play with Isaac and your kids goddammit.

    He assures you that he realizes the fact that if he over eats the herd will get nowhere. He says that his intention never was to completely stop hunting. He thought that the herd would provide a nice emergency cache in case of a rainy day.
    You go and hug Isaac.

    (I think that I'll end this soon. It is almost 1.30 am here where I live.)

    "Honey, I am home!"
    Dorpou enters to the chamber carrying a big insect.
    And then the spider family had a great feast!
    The end... for now.

    I will try to start a new thread next Saturday about 10-14 server time. I will also answer to any input you guys might have.

    It is nice to know that.
    I find it funny how cutesy this quest turned out to be, as drawing all this cutesy stuff is almost completely out of character for me. I would be the last person in my social group that would be suspected of enjoying cute things.

    I off course enjoy this too, otherwise I wouldn't be doing this.

    That is the wonder of the internet. Even grown men like me can safely admit to like cute things without having to fear to look like an idiot. And so far Spiderquest is great. It is a good mix of awesome, cuteness and creativity with a side-flavor of action and suspension. That and the simpleness of the exotic theme. Thumbs up.
    >> Spider Quest OP 01/21/12(Sat)18:52 No.17623521
    True dat.
    I hope that I will manage to keep that mixture fresh. I'd hate to see this turn stale.

    The thing is, I really do only very minimal planning with this. Sure, I think some ideas for encounters and events, but beyond that, it is almost impossible to plan anything, as you guys always go to completely unexpected directions, and I just have to try to keep up, as I don't want to railroad this.

    Forgot it was saturday so I missed the quest, but in terms of aphids, we could always use them as part of a way to keep Andor with us. We provide him with an aphid farm and he provides us with all the benefits that a ladybug can provide a spider empire. He could even collect the plants to feed them himself, especially considering he says he still wants to go out hunting. If Andor was ever wounded then we would be unable to keep him fed if not for an aphid pen.
