    49 KB Zerg Quest LXX Cerebrate Anon 01/22/12(Sun)20:54 No.17637446  

    We interrupt your regularly-scheduled /tg/ for some irregularly-scheduled Zerg Quest!

    Last week (it's Sunday now. I can say that), we had only just finished nuking Samir Duran out of existence, when Bernie broke away from the Swarm! Moria was violated immediately and brutally. During our attempt to fight the wayward cerebrate off, we sent in our new heighliners. Bernie was waiting, and we nearly lost one to it. We destroyed it instead, but the unexpected detonation of its engine wiped out nearly all of Bernie's forces and an entire orbital platform.

    We have commenced rescue and reconstruction operations under the long-silent Citybrate and Defensebrate, and a large fleet just witnessed some of Bernie's forces retreating away from the central Bernie World, toward one of its more recently-established colonies.

    We send an overlord forward to investigate, and see a moderately-sized fleet of Bernie's twisted Zerg protecting a large swarm of...tentacled mosquito-like creatures the size of ore freighters going back and forth from the world to huge craft.

    How should we proceed?
    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/22/12(Sun)20:56 No.17637484

    Send cloaklords to all known Bernie worlds and see if this possible evacuation is a widespread event
    >> Cerebrate Anon 01/22/12(Sun)20:58 No.17637510
    The other two overlords find similar scenes, but with substantially lighter guards, and fewer of the huge craft.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/22/12(Sun)21:02 No.17637558

    Split forces into three attack groups, two smaller ones hitting the more lightly defended fleets, the biggest one hitting the most heavily defended fleet. Time our attacks to happen simultaneously.

    And there's no need to throw everything at him. Bernie's forces are inefficient and took one hell of an ass kicking at Moria. Consult Warbrate and estimate how much force is actually needed to destroy Bernie's forces. Whatever we don't send to finish Bernie can be sent back to our worlds

    Have Gorn take two small task forces, each about 25% of our fielded forces in this sector, to take out the smaller Bernie worlds.
    Warbrate is to take the remaining 50% to strike at the main Bernie concentration.
    Time all attacks to occur simultaneously.
    No prisoners, no survivors.
    >> TUCAMP 01/22/12(Sun)21:11 No.17637665
    Don't forget nukes, nukes and carrier cannons.

    I also figured out why defensebrate is back, blowing up a heighliner with a yatamo shot messes with time... so yeah not going to do that again lest we revive kingston. And out of curiosity, do we look any different from the last time we looked at ourselves?
    >> Cerebrate Anon 01/22/12(Sun)21:15 No.17637699
    Warbrate isn't entirely sure, considering there are a lot of unique units or squads of units we just haven't seen before (like the mosquitos or the huge ones).

    It gives us a rough estimate, but Gorn suggests using overwhelming force. Bernie is the only thing that has ever really *disturbed* Gorn, and it feels like making sure there's nothing left.

    We notice that there are antennae-bearing units making a systematic circuit through each system.

    Go with Warbrate. Whatever Bernie has developed since we gave him (relatively) free reign is invariably going to geared for torture and intimidation. Combine his inefficiency with the losses he took at Moria and we shouldn't need to risk all of our forces to finish him off.

    Opting for a Father-like moment of astonishing power, we drop out of Warp between Bernie's forces and the sun. Bernie realizes what is coming as we blot out the star at the center of the system. As our shadow falls across the enemy fleet, so, too, do we. Mantalisks slice at chitin and carapace, as valkyries destroy the antennae-bearing creatures. The mosquito-like creatures immediately turn away and those remaining after the first volley of projectiles immediately jump away. We also feel the psionic rumblings of a large Warp field initializing within the huge craft. Two of them manage to flee before out capital ships finally rain down fire on the dozen or so remaining. One ruptures down the middle, spilling absolutely massive amounts of Vespine and minerals into space. Another begins to buckle as well, when we notice something happening inside.

    Something is...growing. Naturally, we keep firing until the skin of the thing breaks and out comes Bernie. Four times its previous size, Bernie lumbers into battle, its pedipalps quivering, covered in a sticky lubrication.

    Immediately, we feel a combative psionic force. Two battlecruisers and a few wings of assorted Zerg units drop out of our thoughts. We watch in horror as they turn upon our forces. Bernie is wrenching forces out of our Swarm!
    >> Anonymous 01/22/12(Sun)22:11 No.17638217

    We once again have a moment to consider that our aim is REALLY BAD. 7 out of 10 missiles explode close enough to Bernie to coat it in nuclear fire, but three wind away, exploding in the midst of the ongoing battle. Our casualties are light, but still!

    After a second of blinding light, we can see clear enough to watch a mass of gore, still mostly intact, screaming in our minds, quivering and quaking with rage, fear, and pain, gather its strength.

    Bernie's forces begin to jump to Warp, though few make it out of the system.

    We gather ourself together. We focus our psionic energies at Bernie's shaking form, and squeeze. In a moment of sublime concentration, we condense our thoughts into this attack, and manage to compress all that Bernie is into a single, perfect one-centimeter cube. We release Bernie's remains, allowing them to explode outward, as we grasp onto the retreating psionic energies. We regain control of our captured forces, as well as three of the gigantic craft.

    Several lightyears away, in dark space, we also gain control of a contingent of the mosquito-like creatures, waiting for rendezvous.

    We watch through hundreds of thousands of eyes as the forces to do not control tear themselves apart in the blind rage of forsaken Zerg. Their remains float lifelessly through space, unmourned and unlamented.

    Bernie is dead.

    What Terran-controlled news networks are still intact seize upon the footage, and the reaction is mostly positive. While a few groups make comparisons between these insectile aliens and the insectile alien Zerg, most Terrans just appear happy that nothing is currently trying to kill them, anymore. There is some talk of sending ships into deep space to ensure the future of humanity in the event that the Koprulu Sector gets any more dangerous.

    Artisanlord is already constructing a memorial for its twin. Despite their differences, they once shared an egg, and were, so long ago, one larva. Artisanlord tells us that it is a bond that cannot be undone, no matter the crimes one might commit.

    We can't really argue with that. Well, we could, but we don't think we should.

    After some quick examination, it becomes obvious that the mosquito creatures were made to tear through the surface of a planet's crust, drain resources, and bring them to the huge ships. Bernie was trying to strip-mine entire worlds from orbit, without the intermediate steps of constructing colonies.

    The huge ships, mostly full, have massive amounts of resources in them. Accountantbrate is going to be so very pleased.

    We should subtly hint to the terran leaders that space outside the Koprulu Sector is very, very dangerous. Like, there could be more of those horrible creatures lurking out there soewhere.

    Instead, we should see if there are any halfway decent worlds in our territory that we could lease to the terrans if they feel they need to expand.

    This method of strip-mining might be useful for planets that we don't want to colonize.
    I wonder if they could be adapted to siphon resources and gases from gas giants.
    Have Nargil begin looking into that. He's good with bio-modification.

    Now that we've eliminated the problems that popped up in our backyard, let's get back to the job of grinding Dyles into paste.

    Continue production of war assets in UED space at our colonies.
    Assuming that the UED is in the Alpha Quadrant, and the Koprulu sector is on the other side of the galaxy in the Delta Quadrant, we should consider expanding and exploring the Gamma and Beta Quadrants.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 01/22/12(Sun)23:44 No.17639289
    Nargil dismisses the idea of modifying them for use on gas giants, as their bodies are simply too geared toward interaction with terrestrial planets. It suggests finding it some life forms native to gas giants if we want something along those lines.

    Accountantbrate's carapace blushes a pleasant green when we give it an estimate of the amount of resources found within the harvester ships. We don't know that we've ever actually felt happiness like this from a cerebrate. It's...almost touching.

    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/22/12(Sun)23:49 No.17639337

    Get those resource freighters to our production worlds to start cranking out more units. Start ferrying units over to UED space using our single undamaged heighliner.

    While that's going on we should start scouting out Dyles territory. It'll take time to build up a significant invasion force so we may as well start looking for viable targets.

    Produce another Heighliner.

    Continue production of military assets in the Koprulu Sector. Once our forces are back up to pre-Dyles and Bernie numbers, all forces produced thereafter are to be ferried to UED space to aid in the fight against Dyles.

    Colonylord is to continue our colonization campaign, and keep an eye out for anything interesting from gas giants.

    I believe we still have a free Cerebrate. Delegate to them the task of expanding and fortifying our holdings in UED space.

    Actually, we have three. One was destroyed, and damaged spacetime around Moria enough that reconstruction efforts are still hampered by difficulty getting into and out of the system through Warp travel, and power generators continue to burn out substantially faster than they should, globally...but the other three managed to get away, and have just rolled off the line, good as new (as far as we can tell, anyway).

    We need to request a high-level diplomatic meeting with the UED.
    We need to inform them of the arrival of the Protoss Expeditionary Fleet in their space, that they are here to strike back against Dyles after one of their worlds was attacked. We don't want our two erstwhile allies attacking each other, when we all need to concentrate on Dyles.

    I think we have 4 of them left. Still spawning more X, and constructing more Y is a solid plan. Come to think of it, with the heighliners, assuming we can make more, in the future we don't need build forward production facilities. Now that my mind is on it, we should probably build some orbital platforms around Xenta, primarily for defensive purposes. Also, dropserves everywhere in UED space!

    Good enough for now. We'll have to keep an ear out to see how the protoss and UED get along.

    On to scouting. Start sending out cloaklords

    We really, really, should have a nice personal chat with Kerrigan sooner rather than later.

    (You can do that now or later. Either way's fine with me.)

    (On a sort-of related note, I'm ok with running another thread tomorrow, if there are going to be people there. It'd be a little silly to try running it if you guys are going to be busy, though. Thoughts?)

    I'm down for another game tomorrow. If we're gonna have another game tomorrow we could have a chat with Kerri tonight and finally get back to Dyles tomorrow.

    Thought:Kerri needs to explain herself, specifically how she could loose control of a ghost.
    Though:Indifference to tomorrow, it it is I will, if not oh well.

    [I should be able to be on tomorrow night, what time?]

    Guys. Guysguysguys.
    We have a spacetime anomaly. We should be studying the shit out of this and learning how to replicate it under more controlled conditions.
    >(I think we're pretty much done with temporal shenanigans since we blew up VoidGate's big time travel facility, unless there's some serious effort on your part to get that sort of thing happening)
    We CAN use it. And what have all our problems been recently? Not being able to control the Swarm well enough. Hell, with a big enough psychic presence maybe we could even turn the tide against this Dyles thing too.
    Guys, let's get Dad back.
    >> Anonymous 01/23/12(Mon)01:06 No.17640243

    Talk to Kerrigan.

    We are transparent as shit, she on the other hand acts like she doesn't even love us as a brother and wants no part in the Swarm.
    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/23/12(Mon)01:08 No.17640271

    Talk to Kerri. Ask her why she never calls us. We always have to drop by and see what she's up to. Does she not love us?
    >> Anonymous 01/23/12(Mon)01:09 No.17640278
    Time to play the dopey, lovable and well-meaning but kinda stupid older brother to Kerrigan's prickly rebellious younger sister.

    And we still needed to get her souvenirs from the UED. Like a UED Navy baseball cap and I love Earth t-shirt.

    >What time?

    (8 central, as usual)

    >Guys, let's get Dad back

    (TUCAMP already worked out how you could do that)

    "Cerebrate, I am very busy. Is this something important?"

    We ask her why she doesn't love us.

    "I...love? What are you talking about, Cerebrate?"

    We recount all the ways she's distant from us, harsh with us, how she doesn't seem to respect us or treat us like the Overmind's elder child, how she refuses to join our Swarm.

    (Roll yourself a d20 to see how she's taking this)

    You mean the anomalous behavior surrounding Moria? We should study that. As for bringing dad back, unless we can get the protoss to look the other way for while we use a super secret crystal of theirs to bring back the entity that they blame for their near extinction, I say we continue to hold off on that.
    >> TUCAMP 01/23/12(Mon)01:25 No.17640464
    Join in the sense of not being a lone wolf, not in the psionically dominated sense.
    My other idea was time travel, but voidgates time machine went kablooie and I don't know if we have the plans for it.

    >> timetravelbrate 01/23/12(Mon)01:30 No.17640526
    True time travel to change the past, probably not, it'd undo everything we've accomplished, but if we could replicate the hole we punched in reality over Moria in a more controlled way, maybe we could get some kind of psychic connection going, yank Dad's consciousness into the present right before his death? Just a thought, might be more likely to go unnoticed by the Protoss.
    Unless they notice gaping holes in spacetime.
    >> TUCAMP 01/23/12(Mon)01:32 No.17640542
    Clearly having one of her plans nearly kill her, and only being saved by our sudden decision to say hi, has made her reconsider how distant she wants to be from the rest of the swarm. Also the fact that we pulled a full planetary blockade out of a hat helps.
    >> TUCAMP 01/23/12(Mon)01:34 No.17640568
    But the Morian Anomaly isn't necessarily temporal. Sure it probably is, but it might not be. Still have internbrate figure it out, and tell him to write a paper on it, tell him figuring it all out is his thesis.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 01/23/12(Mon)01:39 No.17640601
    (You guys should really discuss these plans with Labbrate and/or Cyberbrate before you start messing with it. Just saying)

    "Alright, so maybe I haven't been playing nice. I do not like the idea of being controlled again, like I was under the Overmind...and if there's anything in the galaxy that could do that, it's you. I think you can imagine why that might make me cautious about getting close to you."
    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/23/12(Mon)01:46 No.17640686

    Dear sister, if we truly wished to control you, we would have have done it when you were first born. All we are asking is for you to work with with us as an equal as our father wished. True, we would prefer if we were of the same swarm, but if you want to remain separate, that's your decision.
    >> TUCAMP 01/23/12(Mon)01:47 No.17640696
    Not sure how telling the scicorp to do science to the Morian Anomaly would upset them. Understanding it is the first step in fixing/recreating/improving it.

    "I think you give me too much credit, I just had to kill one of my pseudo-cerebrated when it went rogue. And I'm a space slug of my word, at least when it comes to zerg, and I made a promise to our most exalted Father to not try to dominate you."

    Not recreate by blowing up another heighliner, but maybe making a device that creates the battery draining effect. It's SCIENCE, you're not supposed to know how it's supposed to turn out, that's the fun of research.

    "Not sure. You could hop into our swarm, or you could just keep me updated with how you're doing. Oh, would you rather have a UED Navy Football hat, or a Lord Robotorinator tee? Actually I'll get both for you."
    >> Big Fat Zergling 01/23/12(Mon)02:00 No.17640818

    I don't think you'd want to move in with us just yet. So for now, we should have a close alliance. We'll keep each other appraised of our goals and plans, share news of interesting galactic events, technology, useful new strains, etc. Mostly we need to talk more. Your problems with Duran may not have spiraled out of control if you'd had us watching over your shoulder and we would certainly benefit from having an equal to discuss matters of politics and diplomacy with.

    She sighs. "Fine. If it will make you happy, I will keep you informed of the things I do." She quickly outlines her modest spy network inside the Protoss Empire, which she believes to be mostly exposed and ineffectual, and what was, up until a few days ago, a decent collection of near-officials in the Morian government, which she intends to fill up now that so many higher-ups are dead. She gives us the rundown of her decent-sized Protoss battle fleet (stationed in dark space until they are needed), and her recently-depleted ground forces.

    "If there's anything I can do to help you, just...well, we'll talk about that when it comes up, alright?"

    We get the feeling this is as much as we're going to get from her. It's a pretty big step, really.

    Just gotta warn her first. Last time we engaged in psionic touchy-feely, we threw her off-balance in the middle of a fight. She probably interprets such things as attacks.

    We will continue our effort to bring Kerrigan's swarm some class. Dapperlord was merely the first step!

    After everything I've read in these threads, I can only conclude that Kerrigan thinks we are truly mad, or that we think in such a way that our sanity appears to be madness.

    The latter is probably true.

    Give her Rayner and ask her not to enslave him too much? We've let him have a pretty loose leash, and he hasn't fought us too much.
