    14 KB Transpace Guard Quest B13: Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/17/12(Fri)19:11 No.17991681  
    On a level of reality just below our own,
    Wait. I've already told you that, haven't I?

    Here's the setting in brief, for people who are new:
    Every fictional setting is real, and this set of a billion or more fictional worlds makes up the Meta. A good half of these worlds are plagued by Mary Sues, Fixers, Fanfiction writers, and Crossovers.
    Your organisation, the Transpace Guard, is dedicated to cleaning up and removing these intrusions upon other people's stories, preserving the Canon. This involves kicking large amounts of ass AND also chewing large amounts of bubblegum.
    The section of the Transpace Guard that you work for is called Requistions. To be more precise? Requisitions - Looting. It's your job to go around stealing everything that ISN'T important to the canon, and selling it back to your organisation for DOSH.

    The players have looted two worlds successfully so far:

    The first, a Dating Sim world gone wrong when a smelly, obese neckbeard found a way to bring women through the Meta to him and mind control them into servitude, leaving many canons without some of their main characters.
    You went in, picked up everything that wasn't nailed down, and got out.

    The second, Black Mesa from Half-Life. The G-man was too busy playing Quake 3 Arena, and relied on you, Transpace Guard operatives, to fill plotholes and loot everything that wasn't nailed down.
    You proceeded to do so.

    Now, the players are in their 3rd world: A Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup run. Thus far, they have defeated the Dwarf Fortress crossover, and have looted most of the main dungeon. The Tomb, Dungeon below D:18, and Zot are yet to be complete, however.

    Most of the DOSH you'll earn from this mission comes from capturing enemy creatures alive, though items are worth picking up as well. Do this for as many creatures as possible, then head back to base to get paid.

    >Heavy Teleport Support, TG-made
    Teleports up and down 10m x 10m x 10m cubes of material every 30 seconds, or person-sized objects every 3 seconds. Requires line of sight to a ground troop or a deployable beacon to work.
    Electrified Steel Nets for the Teleport Support
    >Instant Revitalization Device from Earthbound
    Touch it, and instantly get the benefits of a good night's sleep
    >An Alien Containment from X-com
    Stores the creatures you stun/disable.
    >Recette from Recettear
    3% bonus to DOSH earned
    >Skyranger from X-com
    Equipped with meta transit drive.

    They have been given stun "staves" to use on enemies in melee combat.
    >The Mentor from Orcs Must Die!
    He is equipped with various Warcraft 3 Aura items, for +10% damage dealt, +10% runspeed, +5% attack speed, +100% mana regeneration, and +15% Exp gained to nearby troops.
    He is equipped with Diablo II Magic Find and Gold Find gear, to allow him to build more traps.
    He has a Staff of Negation to spam AoE dispels on enemy summons.
    He has completed his Freeze Solid spell, which works to capture the Undead, Golems, and other non-fleshy things you encounter. Particularily strong creatures must first be weakened by smacking them around a bit first.
    He is now putting experience towards his Nonlethal Traps.

    >A Blastoise from Pokemon
    Modified so that its cannons fire Holy water instead of normal water.
    It knows Holy surf, Holy water spout, Blizzard, and Focus blast.
    It is carrying a 200 kilogram anti-magic gem, which blocks nearby teleports reliably, and unreliably dispels other magic effects. It can be turned off and on, but not applied selectively.
    It is carrying a Grounding Belt for Lightning immunity, and a +50% damage to the undead mask.
    >1 Hero Auror, named Peter Perigree, from the Harry Potterverse
    As a custom hero, his traits are as follows:
    Master of the Arts: Peter is skilled at learning spells from other canons, and can learn a potentially infinite amount of spells.
    Loot Magnet: Peter is skilled at looting shit, and can equip many more items than a standard Auror.

    In addition to his Harry Potter spells, he has learned:
    Clairvoyance, Detect Objects, Detect Monsters, Detect Unseen, and Charm Monster from Nethack,
    "Totalum Requiscat", a custom TG spell that Accios everything in Line of Sight,
    He is equipped with a Mana Shield (take damage to MP instead of HP, if MP > HP)
    He is wearing a crapload of Diablo II Fast cast rate / Mana regen gear, WoW Spellpower / Int gear, and Crawl Wizardry gear.
    He is also holding your Bag of Holding, which currently contains ... basically everything in the dungeon that wasn't nailed down.

    The players have access to COMMON SENSE.
    If you make a retarded suggestion that would completely fuck you over, you lose a bulb of COMMON SENSE, but that action is prevented.
    If you make an ingenious and creative suggestion that would allow you to bypass much difficulty, you gain a bulb of COMMON SENSE.
    If you earn a bulb of COMMON SENSE when your bulbs are already full, you SUPERCHARGE a bulb. Supercharge all of your bulbs to earn upgrades to your common sense!

    Currently, your common sense loadout is:
    >Extra Bulb 3
    You have 3 extra bulbs on top of the standard 3
    >Red 2
    Whenever you would normally supercharge 1 bulb, you instead supercharge 3
    >Green 1
    Your bulbs start Green. A bulb will turn from Green to Yellow and upgrade actions automatically, if a small adjustment (that you should have thought of) will turn a plan from OK into Good, or Good into Great.

    Currently, your Minecrafter is digging his way to below the Golden Rune in the Tomb. You have a plan to extract it via the floor, thus gaining controlled teleportation in that branch.

    The rest of your forces are idle.
    You can clear D:19 to D:27, or you can clear the Tomb.
    Where to?
    >> Not completely retarded 02/17/12(Fri)19:33 No.17991891
    There were nails in the dungeon? Why didn't we loot those and then loot the things they were holding down?
    Do we get xp or extra DOSH for charming those monsters? if so, let's have our magic users all learn charm monster and get grinding.
    Let's task our scout package with looking for animals on the surface, okawaru just wanted their skins, maybe he'd pay more for the whole animal?
    Things really got rather silly at the end of last session, but it was fun thinking up hypothetical looting methods.
    Box of silence, 3d flanking, Teleport shennanigans, and mentors new self spreading trap should help us significantly, aren't most of the tombs foes made easy for us with our portable silence?

    >Do we get xp or extra DOSH for charming those monsters?
    No XP as they are already defeated, and HR has low cost solutions in place for recruitment.
    You would, however, get the opportunity to use them to fight with you.

    >aren't most of the tombs foes made easy for us with our portable silence?
    Yes. Push the Silencebox forward, Mummies can't use spells and are reduced to slow-moving melee attackers. By making a suitable hallway (which you've been doing for most of the game), you then have most of your team able to weaken or capture the mummies in relative safety.

    >Finding animals to sac to okawaru
    You send WoW team 2 to hunt boars in the forest to curb their impatience, and send the boars to Oka.
    Oka seems pleased.
    >> Not completely retarded 02/17/12(Fri)19:38 No.17991948
    If we dig a pit under the rune, putting an observer at a slightly raided place adjacent to the pit so we can flood the pit with holy water, couldn't we make looting the rune easy and safe?
    Silence box gets put nearby to stop the undead from using spells, maybe have the pit be two levels deep, so we can divide the pit into a grid so that the things that fall into it get seperated when they fall to make capture easier.
    We can dig out the floor with teleport suppoer and minecrafter won't be put at risk, and we can just have him tunnel up under the rune when it falls into the pit

    If you want, you may have Max, Blastoise, or some of the non-religious WoW players, act as agents of Okawaru.

    >We can dig out the floor with teleport suppoer and minecrafter won't be put at risk
    Not in the Tomb you can't, no cTele for the whole place until you get the rune.

    So, you wish to loot the Golden Rune with a plan that isn't risky to your troops, but may harm the Greater mummies?

    That is acceptable.

    On his own merit (read: greenbulb), your Minecrafter constructs a makeshift filtration system using a grate and flowing water. There are 3 Greater Mummies in the pit, all silent, and you can now cTele.
    >> Not completely retarded 02/17/12(Fri)19:46 No.17992030
    If it would harm the mummies, then let's fill the pit with regular water and spam stumbombs at our silenced foes.
    We don't want to break our loot. It would probably be better to risk our troops a little than to risk the loot, as we can rez our troops easily, but we cant rez mummies. Can we rez enemy units? if so, we could simpily teleslice all the living things and rez them after putting them in cages.
    What does being an agent of okawaru entail? Are they basically animal skin looters? Does okawaru prefer the animals alive so he can gift "pets" to his followers?
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/17/12(Fri)19:47 No.17992033
    This isn't to say Greater Mummies can be taken lightly. It'll be a bit of a grind getting through the Tomb properly, since you'll have to lure the mummies to the right place so that your healers are NOT silenced, but the mummies ARE, and you'll have to wound them slowly so as not to kill any.
    WoW 2 is sitting this one out, for that reason.

    You could, of course, just attackmove it with the box and make it faster, but this carries higher risk.

    Take which option:
    A. Slow, reliable
    B. Fast, Fast.

    I'd lean towards slow and reliable, if we're not on a deadline or if there's a time-sensitive issue that we need to address (i.e. XOM taking over the now-vacant Abyss?).

    Slow gives us more loot, so let's go with that.
    Does okawaru mind if they only kill 0 DOSH things to sac to him? Following oka basically gives our troops increased xp gain?
    Do the monsters gods send as punishments despawn? (probably a bad idea to taunt the gods for extra loot, but i think i should mention the possibility)
    Can we teach the WoWers, Dnd cleric, etc extra spells?
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/17/12(Fri)19:57 No.17992112
    The going is slow. Even without their spells, the Greater Mummies put up a hell of a fight - some of them utterly REFUSING to be frozen solid until a critical hit from Blastoise or Max kills them, and thus beating on your Mentor considerably. Healers gon' heal, though, so nothing is lost there.

    >Does okawaru mind if they only kill 0 DOSH things to sac to him?
    Oka is fine with sacs of deers/boars/goats. It's what most of his worshippers do. He lets your troops be more effective in non-magical combat.
    For example, Max would be a good candidate.

    Punishment monsters are A. typically not a good idea, and B. never give XP or leave a corpse.
    You cannot teach the WoWers or the DnD cleric extra spells, as they lack the many years of magical study background that the Auror has.

    so are we pretty much done for this world?

    I'm worried for main quest: it hasn't run since monday.

    Perhaps our copious offerings of LOOT will rouse MetaOP from his slumber.

    Now, the question remains.
    The only dungeon branches left undone are:
    >Dungeon 19 to 27

    The Abyss is a nasty motherfucker that will split your party. If you wish to send a person in, it must be only ONE person. They will not have teleport support and they will be completely cut off from your assistance.

    Pan is also nasty. You will lack teleport support, and have to spend a few minutes at each portal "setting up" so that your forces all arrive in the same area, meaning fast escape is impossible, and even with the powerful lords of Pan dead, it's still a nasty place.

    In Hell, the only path open is to Gehenna, which is currently flooded by water. You'd need to break into the Dwarven Fortress, which still has badass dwarves living in it, to loot Geryon's Horn and the Obsidium rune. This might prove tricky.

    The main dungeon should not be tricky.
    Zot:1-4 will be a grind.
    Zot:5 ... well. I'm waiting.

    Mara's first impression is to start summoning illusions.
    First two of herself.
    First one of Max.

    Your own team experiences the fury of TMAR'd Stunbombs. Max, being a robot, is unaffected - but only the Auror, Blastoise, Mentor, Cleric of Desna, and WoW team 1's tanks are standing after a blast like that.
    "ABJURATION!" screams the Auror.
    It ... misses.
    The Cleric of Desna locks onto the real Mara and starts channeling any buff-stopping spells she has.
    Max launches a volley of stunbombs - they hit their mark.
    Blastoise is wobbling unsteadily, interposing himself between Mara's Fire bolts and the Cleric. Blastoise grunts in pain.
    The Mentor lays down a fury of Observation towers.

    Mara then summons an illusion of your Auror.
    Though your Auror and Cleric's spell resistances hold, the Paralysing attack hits home on the rest of your people.
    "Balls to this, we're getting out of here."
    "Not yet we aren't."
    Your Cleric of Desna leaps forward, invoking her power of Mobility to free herselves from stuns, as your Auror catches a volley from Max.

    Mara gets a customary smack to the face. It's enough to put her down.
    With her illusions still standing.
    Your team teleports out. Shaken, stunned, paralysed, but alive.

    You got Mara. I hope it was worth it.

    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/17/12(Fri)20:57 No.17992787
    Max grumbles about paralysis for about 15 seconds before finally hoofing his way to Blastoise's anti-magic gem. It does its thing, and cures paralysis. Slowly but steadily.
    The Observation traps, combined with teleport support, net you one stunned Mara and one fight on your hands over.

    It's a while before a Healer gets back up from their dirtnap.

    What tactics will you use for this? She needs to be awake to charm her, and Silence doesn't work on Rs.

    Can she make illusions if she's buried alive, with the only gaps within 100 meters being a small air shaft just wide enough to drop stun bombs down, and a cramped place for the auror to stand while he charms her, with the only access being by teleporter?
    Gag her so she cant verbalize, everything but her head and torso being encased in rock
    We could also parylize her, if not magically then maybe with a dagger to the nerves?

    Your plan is brutal. I like it.
    MARA joins your party.
    Mara has more HP than your warcraft spellcasters, about as much as your cleric of desna, and roughly half that of max.
    Mara is pretty decent at dodging or absorbing blows.
    Mara is really good at resisting magic.

    Mara's abilities are:
    Mislead - Target can't tell what type of creature a friend or a foe is, only that something hostile exists.
    Bolt of fire - 3d27 of Pain.
    Mara summon - summons 2 extra copies of herself for even more bolts of pain
    Illusion: Makes a copy of target.

    Is it worth repeating this procedure on any of the other natives we have?
    We caught someone who resurrects if he dies, can we use him to farm xp by killing him over and over again?
    If we can't use the burying alive method on him, maybe we could find out exactly where he resurrects, and put a box around it, so that if he suicides while being charmed, we can recapture him easily for another go. We should probably drug him either way, so he cant figure out how to escape while in captivity.
    We should only do the charming on things that would give us a large advantage though, as we have a limited abount of time.

    What are the limits on this illusion ability? Could we make an illusion of the end boss, a dwarf, or a god? How many illusions can he maintain at once? How often can he make a new illusion if the old one is destroyed?
    Hypothetical end boss plan: Send in wave after wave of illusionary aurors that then try casting charm, stunning spells, etc on the endboss, until one succeeds at it.

    You could potentially charm any monster to work with you, as long as it's not magic-immune. However, their AI isn't the best, and they're likely to turn on you if you're the only thing standing between them and the orb of zot.

    Mara and TRJ are easily the strongest options. Antaeus, too, if you can be arsed to go through the trouble of finding him.

    >We caught someone who resurrects if he dies, can we use him to farm xp by killing him over and over again?
    He respawns in a random location. It's likely you'll never see him again.

    >What are the limits on this illusion ability? Could we make an illusion of the end boss, a dwarf, or a god?
    Yes, Yes, and Yes.
    > How many illusions can he maintain at once?
    I have no idea, but they last for a limited time (maybe 10 minutes?), and I've only ever fought one of my own ghosts at once. Presumably it's 1 per target.

    Also, heard of the term "tripfag"? You're being one, Khronos.

    D:23. Margery was here. To those unfamiliar with her, she's the commander of a group of Hell knights and Necromancers.
    However, Max was wearing the fire mail and had rN+++. She screamed before she died. ... er, well, got captured.
    There were also another group of competent yaktaur captains, however these were in a side vault (pictured). Narrow area + teleport support + stun bombs = lol.

    Fucking nothing.jpg. Well, there was a competent ettin. You outrun it and outrange it. It got captured.

    It's hard to call a Stone Giant "Competent". However, these ones were. Massive hurled boulders force a respawn on your minecrafter, batter your Auror's shield, bowl over your Cleric of Desna (not dead, no con loss), and send Max plummeting to the ground. Timely intervention by your Mentor prevents any more casualties.

    From the back, a pair of competent Fire Giants are handled by your WoW teams. The Fire giants seemed to target the Healers first, but before your WoW team could fully bite the dust, you were done with the Stone Giants.

    You stand at the entrance to the Orb of Zot. Hundreds have tried before you to reach this, possibly even thousands. They have all failed.

    Fish feast is prepared.

    Blasty can Holyificate anything that's disproportionately difficult to capture. Particularly anything that can cause permanent stat losses.

    Mara is maintaining illusions of the Auror, Blastoise, and 2 of himself. Claims he can handle one more, but wishes to save it for "the big guy".

    Your Mentor has invented a Creeping Freeze Vine Trap. It bounces AND freezes. Your Mentor has invented a Healing tower. Your Mentor has invented an Aura/Totem tower. Your Mentor has invented a Swarm tower (upgrade to Wall tower, it periodically summons weak enemies to block the path).

    He will default to using the Healing and Aura towers on clusters of friendlies, then the Creeping Freeze tower everywhere else.

    Your Cleric of Desna equips a ring of Wizardry. While it doesn't raise spell levels, it does make her feel like she can cast more spells per day.

    Mara is mostly hanging around in the back. He doesn't quite get the concept of "Nonlethal", so you're mostly just having him around as TPK prevention.

    Zot:1 to 4 look extremely normal. The biggest problem is that you can't seem to dig the Floor beyond Zot:4 for some reason.

    Your Teleport support seals passages after you have cleared them, to prevent any ... "surprises", and also prevent anyone who might grab the orb and run for it from going up the stairs.

    The enemies here would be a match for you.
    If you weren't funneling them into 1 tile wide corridors of stunning, traps, and more stunning.

    Let's see. Did you encounter any Ancient Liches, Orbs of Fire, Elec Golems, or Curse toes?

    >1 Orb of Fire
    >1 Bone Dragon
    >1 Bone Dragon
    >1 Curse toe

    The Bone dragons are trivial by this point. Tank 'em with blasty and hit 'em till their HP's low, then ice 'em.
    The Curse toes eat an Anti-magic field. Shit's off like Donkey Cough. They might torment you when you move the field away to freeze them, but other than that.

    Now, Orb of fire.

    It's Magic immune, it strongly resists most forms of damage, it's got no fleshy parts to stun, and it has a ton of HP. And my mistake, it DOESN'T blink, that's the Elec golem.

    Orbs of Fire are worth 50 DOSH each, the Elec golems are worth 15 DOSH each.

    However, the Orb of fire is so f*cking fast that even when you're hasted, if you try to lure it into a corridor it'll catch up to you and spam fireballs at you.

    I shall leave this thread overnight for others' input.

    Here is Zot:5, for those who care:

    A wide open area.
    The floor and ceiling are too hard to dig.
    Some of the walls, including those around the orb, are too hard to dig.

    Enemies in this area include:
    1 Elite draconian (Caller)
    3 Draconians
    2 Killer Klowns
    1 Bone Dragon
    1 Curse Toe
    2 Ice Dragons
    3 Dragons (fire)
    3 Storm Dragons
    3 Tentacled Monstrosities
    3 Golden Dragons
    27 Orb Guardians
    3 Orbs of Fire
    4 Ancient Liches

    You would have to fight them on one z-level only, and TPK is TPK here due to no controlled teleport.
    That said, Look at all that money.

    Regarding contacting base:
    It seems that whenever you try to use your comms, Base always responds as though you just said "We're encountering the orb of zot, and there's an orb of zot here. We may need a party after dealing with the orb of zot" or likewise...

    Truly, you are the Doshmasters.

    Spending 80 hours so far in the dungeon, you have lost none of your initial loadout of 850 DOSH (resells for 425 DOSH).
    In fact, Blastoise went from a 50 DOSH unit to a 90 DOSH unit, owing to his experience level rising.
    The Cleric of Desna went from 20 DOSH to 150 DOSH.
    The Mentor, starting at 65 DOSH, is now worth 75 DOSH.
    Noting that reselling gets you only half, you earned 90 DOSH from working your units.

    This is, of course, in addition to the Loads of money you get from selling loot and creatures.

    In total: You will have 15,265 DOSH if you leave now.
    If you loot Zot:5, you will have 1570 more DOSH, for a total of 16,835 DOSH.

    That's a lot of DOSH.

    I guess I'm confusing you with Lace or something.

    The players have been well-behaved, and often creative/ingenious. I like it.
    It's strange that nobody's tried to romance any of the side characters at all. There's been at least five times when they talked to a female NPC to try to help them with their problems, but no times when they were trying to get in someone's pants.

    Actually, I had lines beyond "lol no" for many of the characters so far, though only one of them would consent to relations.

    The Auror would complain about the lack of women in the upper tiers of Hogwarts, and ponder fixing it with magic.

    Blastoise would say that he only likes Pokemon. Specifically those of the Monster and Water 1 egg groups. He would express worry about Hedonist/Shipper attacks on Pokemon canons.

    The WoW teams would talk about the razing of Goldshire, and the effects it has had on their world. The gnomes and dwarves would also complain somewhat about their lack of popularity.

    Elyvilon would point at Sehanine and shrug, and might also complain about Xom if pressed.

    Rocksfall_youdie traps were present for most of it. Literally in one case.

    There was one among them you could have legitimately romanced. Guess which one!

    Why couldn't we have just taken his deal and looted the creatures, then betrayed him? We had no incentive to follow through on our half of the agreement except that it'd be a hard fight. Oh well.

    So Bootleg, if we HAD fought you, how would we have beaten you, and who would've died? Would any of our plans have worked?

    >But in all seriousness, it seems a bit creepy to try to romanticize chars. Especially after seeing the Grognard in action.
    That's what I was hoping for. Still, DM wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't plan for the possibility of the players Killing, Romancing, or Ignoring every NPC the players come across.

    If you put in a BBEG, the players will ignore him.
    If you put in a plot-delivery talkative NPC, the players will kill him.
    If you put in a random world flavor NPC with no lines, the players will make her the party mascot.
    It's a constant of freeform gaming that your players will try to Loot it, Kill it, Fuck it, or Ignore it, and will do this utterly randomly.

    rolled 55, 59, 1, 69, 44, 24, 54, 84, 86 = 476

    I have no idea of the capabilities of the Cleric of Desna.

    First, I'd simply sit in my Room-o-zot until the party entered. At which point I self-buff, step out from behind my Portable-DM-Wall-Of-Invulnerabilty-so-the-players-don't-kill-the-BBEG-as-he-talks-to-you, and things are on.

    I had a lever in there that'd lock the doors, but it's still possible to teleport out if you deliberately stepped on one of the 8 teleport traps I had lying around.

    Also, the room was like 33% zot trap, thanks to a few Decks of Dungeons and minefield draws. Shit would get very silly very quickly.

    Let's just roll some dice and see how well it goes.

    For starters, I'd open with Walk With Death (kali piety) to raise 2 Dwarf Marksmen and 2 Dwarf Miners as allies, and have them target Max.

    I would then walk straight up to Blastoise and start spamming Fire Storm until either I ran out of HP or your Minecrafter and WoW healers were dead. Guessing by those rolls, I'd be able to block/dodge Blastoise's Focus blasts enough.
    (Focus blast? Does 50% of my HP. Easy. I'm steel type, it's fighting, it's super effective, he's max level. I don't block it or dodge it, It's PAINFUL.)

    If Max is still up at this point, I watch whether you're using him to shoot at me, or are holding fire while I tank blastoise.

    If you ARE shooting at me, Summon butterflies and semicontrolled blink on top of him.
    >If you are NOT, kill Blastoise asap.
    That's the crux of this plan.

    If I'm able to get Blasty down then I take your Anti-magic gem, pick it up, and get out my axe of Distortion.

    And yes, I know Fire storm does fuckall to Blasty an Max. I target it on the minecrafter and WoW healers.

    Thankfully, your mentor rolled a goddamn -1- so he was eaten by Zot traps. If he wasn't, then I'm reasonably sure he + Auror can take me down.

    I hit the scroll of silence, Abyss your Auror (he'll be back), proceed to carve up anyone still standing while chainchugging health potions.

    Right now, Elyvilon's boon activates. Bam, you guys are up, I'm wounded as fuck.
    I hit Dance with Death, then Walk with Death to summon dwarf miners to collapse the dungeon, I run away from the orb of zot into the Zig and haul ass through it like Death itself was after me.

    I'd have the Max put those bouncy traps around Blastoise so that you couldn't get close enough to melee.

    Also, since Blastoise has an anti-magic gem, how are you spamming firestorm?
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/18/12(Sat)14:12 No.18000938
    So, in short, even with damn unfortunate rolls on your part, I'm stuck with "Collapse the dungeon, gtfo", and you just hit Dance with Death to survive the collapsing dungeon.
    Your Auror comes back, says "Hey picked up this Abyssal rune and where'd the dungeon go".

    Fortunately it's mostly antiteleport and only works on hostile enchantments. As for bouncy traps, I -fly-, son.

    For my Win condition, I need to burn Ely's boon, AND your Dance-with-death.

    And may I say, if you've got DWD up then I have to use mine or your entire team just lols and powers through me.
    And THEN I have to kill you twice. It's not good enough to kill you once and drop the dungeon on you, your shaman can selfres.

    It was quite a hopeless fight on my end, I must admit.

    Without HIM, I smite your Mystic Theurge, dwarves on Max + firestorm on healers, and chop Blasty.
    THIS time, I'm not on critically low HP when everyone pops back up, because only Blasty and Max can reliably get past my SH/AC.
    Blasty goes straight to the goddamn Abyss, and I fly directly to Max to chop his face in.

    You can lure individual strong monsters out of a pack of enemies.
    Or, if you'd prefer, lure them into a crapton of stun traps, a place where you HAVE tele support, and have already captured shit like this before.

    "Not our job to deal with SUEs. Our job's done. Let's rack off."
    But the Abyss, and-
    "Fuck that, too risky for the pay. Job complete, pack up time, get in and fuck off."

    Your crew loads into the Skyranger.
    Blastoise is upset it didn't get to kill more things. the WoW teams are upset that they didn't get any gear upgrades and that setting up defensive emplacements is so slow, but at least they were able to earn the merit of Okawaru by killing boars in the forest.
    Your Auror maintains his 6-armed form, until he falls asleep, and he returns to normal. His gear clatters around a bit before you put it in a box next to him.
    Max inspects himself for damage, poses for a non-existent camera, and claims to be looking forward to getting paid.
    The Minecrafter seems to be content at his journey, but he too needs rest.
    Your Cleric of Desna simply repeats "VGCG" and "VGTG" over and over. You have no idea what this means, but she seems happy.

    Most of your troops file off to other assignments, cash paychecks, or to do whatever it is people do to pass the time before Logistics send them somewhere.

    Being more concerned on the effects of your job or the changes to Canon, your first instinct is to find out what's going on with the Abyss.

    It seems notices for an "Abyss grand opening tourney" in a week's time are already being posted around the base, but you can find no trace of the Vadrigar who is to lead it. Perhaps he's on assignment at the moment.
    Nonetheless, it seems that within a week, there'll be an infinite layer of rocket launchers and respawning for everyone.

    You head back to your usual "Chill the fuck out and bullshit with people" depot. It's as clean and comfy as usual. You're pretty sure you could take some time off now and nobody would give a shit. You DID just make a lot of pay back there.

    Actually, it'd be best to save this for next session.

    So I'll just lay your choices out now, and you can mull over them, and I'll get all the LORE up next thread.

    Things to look into:
    #1. See what's happening to the troops
    #2. Look into the Tourney, and the mission to reclaim the Abyss (these are one in the same)
    #3. See how the mission to Alpha Centauri went
    #4. See how the mission to the Sailor Moon "everyone bring your own fan character" place went.
    #5. Bullshit to people.
    Your Auror and Mentor are already off to teach other people of the skills they learned, and your Theurge, Minecrafter and WoW team 2 have gone straight to HR for assignment (since I forgot to give them a personality).
    Available for bullshitting:
    WoW team 1

    After that is done, your missions available are:
    #1: Time off
    You are entitled to take 5% of your total DOSH earned from last mission, i.e. 868 DOSH, and spend it on shit that interests you.
    #2: Beer run with Max
    Max has expressed interest in an unofficial mission with you to pick up Booze, Smokes and Chicks from as many canons as you can in one night. You will have the limited 868 DOSH budget.
    #3. Loot a planet, A:
    A planet with Psi-rich crystals has been located in the Starcraft Universe, and is currently being fought over endlessly by Zerg, Terran and Protoss. Conquer this planet, establish a year-long peace treaty with each of the three, and we'll loot the entire planet.
    #4. Loot the planet, B.
    A planet with time-morphing capabilities, the Little Planet, has appeared in orbit of Moebius, as part of the "Sonic CD" canon. We are yet to determine exactly what place in the Timeline this occurs due to the interference. Ensure the Canon takes place as intended, then loot the planet afterwards.
    #5. Loot the planet, C.
    How would you like to rule the world?
    We have located a Civilization canon. Because it's literally not KNOWN what the canon eventually will turn up like, and because you probably don't want to spend 6000 years on one job, you will be equipped with a Chronosphere that allows you to make jumps forward, and backward, in time as need be.
    Ensure that you have infiltrated and taken over whichever nation is to conquer the world, by as early (in-game time) as possible.

    Note that those last 3 missions may not necessarily give you return on your loot. We are not sure how much these planets are worth to us - so don't spend all your money trying to take one over.

    I'm voting Civ planet.

    Maybe take a robot that can A) pass for human and B) last for a reasonable amount of time between recharges (say, 100 years or so-obviously taking some means of recharging it with us in the chronosphere), or recharge itself through lightning or whatever? If we took, for instance, a reprogrammed T-X, they could take the slow path, perhaps establishing a secret society or cult to guide things in our absence. Not to mention, perhaps taking to the field of battle (in disguise) to turn the tide of key battles?

    Yes. I'm recovering, though. Nothing serious, but I've learned I can't Quest well when my mind is all foggy. Hopefully thread tomorrow (Sunday).

    If you guys can get a plan together, we can try to power through a chunk of Dystopia.

    Awesome! Glad to hear you're better!

    OK chaps, let us plan the FUCK out of the next session. I'll start a planning thread tomorrow around midday board time if we don't have one up. And if I remember (not a guarantee).

    Will the quest be online at the usual time, OP?

    I'm voting for Planet B, because it's awesome. However, if we can get enough people to agree to it, we should REALLY go with Max on the Break Run - booze, smokes, and chicks sounds god-damn awesome.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 02/18/12(Sat)22:13 No.18006407
    Just to be clear: You can do the Booze run and then the Civ/SC/Sonic CD world. Time off is, basically, "Here's some money and a meta drive, don't fuck up anyone's canon, go have fun".
    As for me? Still kind of tired. Think I should go back and sleep more.

    And yes, most of the Canons I know of are videogames from 1990-2005. You can guess how I spent my youth.
    >> Anonymous 02/18/12(Sat)22:14 No.18006423
    while it does indeed sound quite awesome, having a whole planet at our disposal is more awesome. And that being the case, I'm voting planet C, because it might lead to the SMAC techtree, which is awesome.

    Although if Holtz is anywhere in our direct chain of command, I might be willing to reassess our plans.

    You know of one or two people named Holtz, mostly Farmers or guys in Logistics. None of them resemble the Holtz from Metaquest.

    Also, it's completely up to MetaOP whether Dr. Grimm 2nd-in-charge-of-human-resources is the same person as, father of, or completely unrelated to, the Dr. Grimm from Metaquest.

    >> Codeki 02/18/12(Sat)23:36 No.18007602
    Like I told you previously, getting the dragonballs is a retarded idea. Expecially when other canons have casters that can CAST wish. Hell, our Cleric is one of them!

    ...Khronos isn't a troll... At least, not a purposeful one.
    I thought it was a cool idea.
    Clerics can cast wish?! I WISH FOR DRAGONBA--- Wait...

    But on a more serious matter, fun cannons to fuck with:
    Paper-Mario universe
    A Minecraft world, with lots of random villagers, and asshole moderators who fuck with us
    The worlds from DARK CLOUD
    What you believe to be a rift between cannons, turning out to be the cannon from SuperSmash bros Brawl
    The Harry Potterverse, in which, only the Auror [And other Potter-Magic] will work

    Any other suggestions?

    If you're not a troll, then I'm sorry, it must be hard living in a world where your brain doesn't work the same way as everyone else's. That said, your suggestions are just so different to those of a typical player that I cannot and will not use them.

    Seriously though. You post dumb suggestions while wearing an !AWEsomEEEE tripcode. If that ain't tripfag trollin' then I'll be damned.

    I am trying to understand the line(s) of thinking that would lead a person to believe that going to "A minecraft world where the moderators fuck with us" would be a good idea, but I cannot find them.
    It is the same way for many of your suggestions. I cannot reasonably talk about them, since I literally cannot understand the lines of thought that would lead a human being to make those suggestions.
    As I cannot interact constructively, and it's never a good idea to yell angrily at someone, I opt to ignore it, as it's the best I can do.

    Regarding a /b/tard's self-esteem:
    *laugh* the hundreds of camwhores say otherwise. /b/ is a haven for people who give absolutely 0 shits about the rest of the world. That is what makes it both incredibly ugly and also incredibly win. It only goes to crap when people obsess over camwhores, or whine about their feelings. The rest of the time, it's pretty good.
    >> Codeki 02/19/12(Sun)00:41 No.18008475
    Arcane Casters can cast wish.
    Clerics can cast Miracle, which does the same.

    Our friend is a Theurge which means he can cast either.
