    Sorry. Old thread here;


    It got caught up and an autosage before it could really begin. I will re-post everything.

    >This chart should easily explain what kind of freak you've been born as. Of course, it is a highly mutable life-form, so what you begin as and what you end up as can be unrecognizable.

    >Whenever you perform an action - roll 4D6. 1-2 is a -. 3-4 is nothing. and 5-6 is a +. The more +s you have the better, and the more -s you have is horrible.

    >For weeks you have been tracking Randros - an Aughound. You're pretty sure that he has recently drank some tainted water as he seems to be weakening. Your bodies are low on biogel and you need to go in for the kill soon.

    Instead of rolling 4d6 where 1-2 is -, 3-4 0 and 5-6 + you can instead roll 4d3-6 as this will have the same outcome. If you roll a 1 (33%) you get -1, if you roll a 2 (33%) you get 0 and if you roll 3 (33%) you get 1.

    It's the simple equation of emulating Fudge dice in a normal diceroller.

    Dfaghn runs after the beast and slams into him. He feels the victory is his, but he didn't know that Randros was dead just seconds before he got there.

    The beast bleeds biogel - an important ingredient for healing and accepting augments.

    You may also attempt to fit his acid-spitting aug to your body. You will need to roll for it, and attempting to do so without the biogel, and even with it, could have a bad effect.

    The tubes attach and it slowly begins to alter your stomach. You begin over-producing acid and it causes you to feel nauseous. You can spit acid, but because the biogel went towards attaching the augment, your leg did not fully heal.

    You all begin frantically looking for flesh sacs and bone cups to hold the gel. As of now you have 3 more units of it. It would do you well to save it.

    After a brief struggle, you bag one too, but you covet stix for finding the brown gold.

    After you head home and feed the mouth, you wake up the next day to find the city has grown. You can see thick, veiny root-like appendages stretching deep into the ground. Let us hope this doesn't upset anything living below.

    The corpses of the darklings can be fed to the city, the only useful augment they carry is their eyes, which can see in the dark.

    The TL;Dr version is you live in a land made of flesh and bone. To find anything non-living is nearly unheard of. We began by fighting a beast known as an 'aughound' - these are freaks who have acquired so many augmentations that they went insane.

    A freak is a person or human. No 2 are alike and are normally a result of a city spitting out thousands and thousands of useless creatures, and some of these tend to be useful members of society.

    The aughound that was killed became our city and now we live inside it. The goal not is to let the city grow and form a new home.

    Stix makes the robe into a scarf/poncho like thing. He also attempts to modify it so that he can carry stuff in it.


    Stix is curious about the wares of the merchant. He starts browsing through the products the trader has for sale. He readies himself to haggle like there is no tomorrow.

    Well, we do have the splinters, but Stix is a greedy fellow, so he'll part with them only if there is no other thing to sell. Then there is the cloaks were just made, propably some leftover parts from the darklings and if nothing else won't do, we can just chop off our own parts.

    "B-but it seems you all are more geared toward combat, got a few extra arms, some fine bone crafted weapons, and some leaping legs. Each augment comes with biogel so you can attach it, but fine weapons like this aren't cheap."

He is somewhat interested in the jumping legs, though he doesn't actually need them, as there are no problems with his own legs so far. A second pair of arms would also be quite useful.

    I think it's wonderful that someone, in this case you actually remembered this setting bothered to make a quest about it.

    At one point, I had planned of running a quest in this setting myself, but I have been quite daunted by the task recently, as my experiences with running Spider Quest have shown me quite clearly how much effort running a quest takes. Especially in a world as complex as this.
    Or at least my idea of this world is very complex.
    I fluffed out shitload of stuff relating to the gigerverse/Mundus Carnis in my spare time. Noble houses, other guilds and so on. Unfortunately they are all in my head currently.

    But anyways, I liked this quest, and I hope we will revisit our twisted little freaks again.

    Agreed. If I do another thread He will be a city guard drone.

    Also, when I make a new thread I will give you all a heads up. Just shoot me and email at agoorigod@gmail.com if you want me to keep you informed.

    "Let me see what I can do."

    Once I understood what was going on, this was pretty cool. I have to admit that with you back, my mind is shifting back into cryd mode.

    I like it.

    I'll be sure to shoot you an email, however I might just find it haphazardly since Uni is out and I'll have no job soon. Anyway, off to work.

    Allowed the city to grow more, feel free to add your own........ additions.

    I've always felt pixels are a better medium as I am not a great artist. And quest threads are improved with some kind of draw faggottry.

    I would love to see current sprites and I'll keep popping in to read what you've posted, but I've been in the damn chair for 6 hours straight and I need to get the fuck up!

    Have this everyone.
    You people rock, and this was a fun quest.
    >> NO TRIP 05/03/12(Thu)16:03 No.18964871
    I was thinking of writing that, but I didn't consider it real loot. I suppose I should make a craft-list.
    >> from Aether !GuYmUwz4mI 05/03/12(Thu)16:06 No.18964909

    This is great, man! Truly wonderful!

    I also want to compliment everyone on the role-playing that was done. Everyone got very in character and it seemed to be understood to trust no one, accept your flaws, and take what little you can get. I really wish I had a reaction image to suit my feelings.
