>Previous Threads can be found at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psion%20Quest>As always, you could check Einstein's data at any time: http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8The year is 2573, and the Void Queen is moving.You can see it, through twisted, psionic perception, peering past the faded view of Robin, Rho, and Isaac, peering out into the grand tendrils, boring telepathic holes into the fabric of space, floating along the wake of demiurg and manifested ships.They were... numberless.You felt a chill go down your spine, and your head start to pound.Thousands of lightyears away, on a world on the other side of demiurg space, was the Void Queen. You felt more alien ships manifest themselves around her planet, in orbit.You saw her, a majestic creature with a thin, lithe carapace, four scythe-ended arms, and six alien eyes.She stared back, and with a power you could hardly believe, started to spea-Robin shook you, and you blinked- Everything had a strange, reddish overlay, but you were knocked out of that perception, almost forcefully."Heather!" Robin said. "Snap out of it!"You realized you were shivering uncontrollably, and behind you, Devourer and Keen gave eachother worried looks. "What's going on?" Isaac asked.
>>25136282"We're out of time."First thing we do is warn everyone at the station, Max should be able to warn all the planets that will be attacked and be taken seriously, we could also shoot a quick warning to our parents and that one big ass ship above Burer’s Glyph.
>>25136339Next we see how much reinforcement we can get to those planets via Devi hooking up Delta to Surya, infinit energy as far as I can tell. We have delta do that and have him make exosuits for everyone (we can just share the pilot knowledge) and teach fucking Summer how the fuck guns work via mind virus. Give Devi some of our clay, and have someone else split theirs with Delta and new Rho. At that point we have Devorer teleport us to VQ planet, kill her ass, and be done with it (Not worried about nukes, she can’t manifest them near us or even detect us due to the clay.)This is my suggestions at least.
"Well, I got a glimpse at Rose before something else tore my attention away. She has potential for something, but I didn't get a good enough look to tell what before I saw the invasion.The Void Queen and the Demiurg have now teamed up - they've got hundreds of ships heading pretty much everywhere in UPA space except here."
>>25136282How to combat ship spam:For this recipe you'll need:1 Summer1 Deltaget a pocket universe. put delta inside. switch time to 1000x faster. have delta build ships.
>>25136282"The void queen, she's sending so many ships to our homeworlds, we've got to warn them and do... SOMETHING"
>>25136363>she can’t manifest them near us or even detect us due to the clayFor all we know, she can detect us, just not act near us
"Er, stuff.Right! We need to go kill the Void Queen. Right now. Time's up, she's attacking everywhere, and the only way to stop it is to take out the source.So let's go ahead and gather everyone up."
>>25136282>RhoI think you mean Rose
>>25136282<Everyone to the cafeteria for a meeting!>Except Damien, he needs the sleep.
>>25136282>Changed picture>Void Queen on the moveI give 5 threads until the end.
>>25136448we're missing valuable clairvoyance input.>shit
>>25136445He was still calling Robin Rho for like 20 threads after she changed her name. I would just ignore it.
>>25136495We can hook him up to Surya, and then he can advise Delta on strategy.
>>25136484He uses that picture when we start a thread in Knowledge mode, IIRC.He also said that it's likely to go over 100 threads, assuming Heather doesn't die like a bitch.
"We're out of time." You say. "The Void Queen and the Demiurg have now teamed up. They have... hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of ships heading pretty much everywhere in UPA space except here.""Aw, fuck!" Keen said, and pulled up his personacom. He started mashing out messages to Max and Manus, and you did the same, messaging yours and Ellie's parents."Everyone, to the cafeteria, please. We may be in great danger." Manus's voice came over the intercom, a few moments later. "Marines, to the shuttles, your commanders should have orders soon. You've all been preparing for this."In the cafeteria, you saw everyone, except Damien. Theta and Sarvesh arrived, Sarvesh in his normal form, and Delta rolled in last. "Lambda, Kat, Rho?""It's Rose now." Robin said."... Rose, come this way." Kailynn said. "We're sending the three of you somewhere safe."After Kailynn, Lambda, and Rose left the room, you turned to the remainder. The councilors, the clones, Anna, Sarvesh, Summer, Jilly, and Alex were all there, anxious."We need to go kill the Void Queen. Right now. Time's up, she's attacking everywhere, and the only way to stop it is to take out the source." You say."Everywhere?" Summer asked, quietly. "How can she attack everywhere?""Manifesting weapons and spacecraft." Devourer said. "And crew.""... Oh, shit." She said, eyes widening.
>>25136282Just thought I'd pop in and say blow up planet/star or go home.
>>25136525>Kailynn, Lambda, Rose, and Kat
>>25136495Get Theta and Anna to hold hands and zap everyone with energy from Helios.
>>25136540Did we at least get to give Rose some clay before she left?
>>25136525>"... Oh, shit." She said, eyes widening.>Summer>Cussing
>>25136525"We need time to plan. Summer, can you take us into your universe at max time warp?"
>>25136582If we do this, grab a bunch of food and Damien as well.
"Theta, Anna, hold hands and zap everyone energy." You say."Where do we get the power from?" Anna asked."I'll have them turn up the nuclear engines. There's a conduit right there." Jason said, and nodded to one of the panels. He took it off, messaged someone on his personacom, and Anna put her hands on it.Her hair fuzzed up, and Theta shook- And suddenly, you felt lightning pounding through your veins, fire rushing through your body."Done." He said."And where's Lin?""He said he's on his way!" Ellie said, looking down at her personacom. Soon enough, Lin huffed in."Damien's asleep. I can't get him awake." Lin said.Everything was still red, and gave everything a bloody cast."We need time to plan. Summer, can you take us into your universe at max time warp?""I can't take Alex." Summer said."I'll lower my shield." Alex said. "Are you sure you can keep it down? All the way?" summer asked, and he nodded.A moment later, you were all standing on a featureless plain, with pure white ground and sourceless light from all directions."Okay, we're in." Summer said, and shook a bit, panting. "I left all of our quantum routers outside, else they'd lose entanglement."Theta touched her, and she suddenly looked less tired.
>>25136647"Okay. First, any plans?"<Jason, how do the FTL Armor things work? Can we apply it to other things?>
>>25136647How much time did we estimate we had exabutt?"Delta, if we can hook you up to a powersource to have all the energy you need, could you make enough reinforcements to make a difference?"
>>25136647we can't protect all of those world at the same time, if we don't cut off the source the ships will just keep comingdidn't Jilly say something about a rebellion happening?i vaguely remember reading about that after we arrived on the current station.and Summer had something planned as well.
>>25136700For the planets being attacked that is.
>>25136647"Alright, I'm pretty sure this is VQs way of saying that playtime is over. She's broadcasting her position like a beacon with all those links. The bad news is that she is well aware of this, as well, and is manifesting tons and tons of ships around her planet. This is exactly why we recruited Delta, though. Hopefully, with energy transfusions, he can create enough ships to buy us enough time to get to VQ.Now, I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather not be on the receiving end of a nuclear arsenal. This red clay will stop her from manifesting stuff like that right on top of us, yeah? Hopefully it'll give us enough distance that Isaac and myself can stop whatever blast reaches us.And that's as far as I got. Any suggestions are welcome."
"Okay, now I can relax a little.With Summer's help, we've got more than a little time to make stuff. After that, I'm hoping Sarvesh and Robin can work together to actually get us and all the stuff on Void's world. Where she actually is on that world I'm not sure, but it shouldn't be too hard to actually find out.The quicker we cut off her connection to things, the more lives we save here."
We'll need ships to assualt the place anyway. So Delta manifesting a fleet is a good plan. Otherwise they'll have the ability to kill us from orbit.
>>25136800I was thinking we use his ships to reinforce the planets and just teleport to the VQ.
>None. Maybe an hour until the first ship hits the first world.<Jason, how do the FTL armor things work? Can we apply it to other things?><They work by bubble drives on the inner hull and properly-made hull plating. It would be too difficult to build in a short amount of time, and isn't as useful as it seems.> He said."Okay, first, any plans?""If I can get on the ground, I can help." Summer said. "I can contact Blackreach." Anna said. "Get some military support. And there's always the wyvern I can fly.""Delta, if we can hook you up to a powersource to have all the energy you need, could you make enough reinforcements to make a difference?""Yes." Delta said. "I cannot easily create bubble drives, however, so any reinforcements will be slower than light if I make enough to make a difference."Jilly was quiet. "I could protect everyone from being... puppeted." Jilly said. "I think.""Maybe I can punch her in the face if I get there." Alex said. "Might just fix everything.""I can pelt her with asteroids." Isaac said.Sarvesh simply stared at the featureless ground.
>>25136842Let's be honest. None of those are really any great help
>>25136842Summer, have you figured out guns yet? Would it help if I just show you?
>>25136842"Actually, Alex punching her in the face was a pretty key part of the plan. I'm willing to bet that'll screw her mindslaving juju right up, and without her minions she's just a somewhat powerful psion, as far as we know.Issue is actually getting to her."
>>25136842"Credit for your thoughts, Sarvesh.">if he says he's useless"You could teleport bombs that Delta could make on the ships, for example."
>>25136842she knows we're coming,could we teleport Theta, Anna and Delta to the world in question to manifest enough reinforcements on site? then FTL wouldn't matter, but it may tire Robin out.
>>25136842"It's a trap. I bet you."
>>25136842"How many bubble drives do you need to move a planet?"
>>25136954Doesn't matter if it's a trap, need to make a move anyways.
>>25136842An hour. Well, crap."I think our best bet would be to attack her directly. We have two people who can become immune to direct psychic manipulation. Delta can make ships in orbit with Theta is there to provide energy and healing. Robin can teleport those who need to recharge to them. The rest of us attack her directly."Before we go we should Awaken Surya and Wyvern so they can pilot themselves.
"Let's be honest. None of those are really any great help. Though, Alex punching her in the face was a pretty key part of hte plan. I'm willing to bet that'll screw her mindslaving juju right up, and without her minions, she's just a somewhat powerful psion, as far as we know. Issue is actually getting to her.""... I have an idea." Theta said. "Me and Anna do that power trick on Isaac.""What would I do?" Isaac said."Throw the planet in the sun." Theta said. "What? No!" Jilly said, suddenly. "The people she's controlling are still people! We can't kill an entire planet of people!""If I even can." Isaac said."Here's what we can do instead." Jilly said. "Psionic powers take focus, right? If some of us can distract her somehow, force her to use her powers on someone else, or even split up or something, then she won't be able to kill all of us instantly.""I can distract her." Sarvesh said. "If I can focus, I won't be able to be hurt.""I can distract her as well." Devourer said, now his humanoid, headless form.
>>25136842"I'd say that we can lessen the stress on Jilly by taking something small and quick, like the Surya, and then having Delta mass fabricate droned ships once we reach her planet. Once that fleet in orbit is dealt with, or at least occupied, we can head to the ground and take the fight to her."
>>25136976"The shield thing Sarvesh made can deflect psionics, we could give everyone a exosuit equipped with one. Also it makes things explode.
>>25136976"Dumb plans. We're going planetary bowling."
>>25136979>>25136975He needs a shitload of energy for that, we'd have to hook him up to surya.
>>25137022No, we aren't.
>>25136976two distractions, one of which she has no idea about, maybe if Sarvesh can get his arms around her fast enough we can lock her down.we won't have long though but if we can get Alex within a few meters she'll be pissing herself.we are NOT going to throw millions of innocent people in to a sun.>i'm not good at planning these things
>>25136976Perfect, we've just had a great lesson on how to be really distracting from Luna!
>>25137042we should be prepared to, consider this, how many planets will suffer from VQ's forces? weight the lives of everyone on every planet the VQ is attacking against 1 planet
so if we supercharge Isaac, could we separate a small part of the VQ's planet from itself, preferably the part with VQ on it, throw that at the sun, and spare the people on the rest of the planet
>>25137042I dunno, I'd say saving 5 and more worlds is worth one.
>>25136976"Really, what we're trying to do here is force a direct confrontation. If Delta can keep the fleet busy, then we can dive straight for her. Devourer and Sarvesh can do their thing, the rest of us can act as defense, stopping blasts , recharging energy and vanishing manifested enemies. We just need to give Alex time to get one good punch in, and then she'll be thrown completely off balance, and it can only go badly for her from then on. Alex is the one best suited to do the deed, the rest of us are there to give him the chance."
>>25137031That was the plan. Anna and Theta supercharge delta, he fabricates a fleet as quickly as he can and keeps the defenses occupied.
>>25137099Alex won't stand a chance against those talons though, Ellie in her suit would be a great asset here as long as she isn't mind controlled.
>>25137137We can give Alex our exosuit, maybe.
Operation probably a bad idea revision 0:1: Teach Rho Alex's powers because she has super reflexes2: Rho and Anna teleport in3: Rho raises her shield to cover both her an Anna, and Anna shoots her with a gun.
>>25137147didn't we manifest parts of it lately?
Maybe you're all here because this the only place you fit inMaybe you're here because you don't have anywhere else to goMaybe you're all here because deep down, you want to be hereThe reason doesn't matter, what matters is that you're hereIf we don't act now, she might destroy everything.Everything but us.The only ones who can prevent her from doing it.So the way I figure it;She wants to destroy the galaxy. All living things except the ones she slaves and uses as toys.Well, I guess I'm interested in showing her what destroying everything results in!Time to make her pay.So I'm not telling you to go, I'm not even asking.You do what you gotta do, Prometheus.
>>25137171Don't think so. That was Ellie's suit.
"Oh and this should go without saying but nobody is allowed to die. If anyone dies, I'll pout at them for the rest of eternity."
>>25137096I'd say we don't need to completely eradicate an entire race.
>>25137166The two powers are mutually exclusive, I would imagine.
>>25137166you're right, that is a pretty bad idea, Alex's powers would likely disrupt ALL other abilities and she'll never be able to teleport ever again.
"I'd say that we can lessen the stress on Jilly by taking something small and quick, like the Surya, and then having Delta mass fabricate droned ships once we reach her planet. Once that fleet in orbit is dealt with, or at least occupied, we can head to the ground and take the fight to her.""Is that a smart idea?" Jilly asked."Really, what we're trying to do here is force a direct confrontation. If Delta can keep the fleet busy, then we can dive straight for her." You say. "Devourer and Sarvesh can do their thing, the rest of us can act as defense, stopping blasts, recharging energy, and vanishing manifested enemies. We just need to give Alex time to get one good punch in, and then she'll be thrown completely off balance, and it can only go badly for her from then on. Alex is the one best suited to do the deed, the rest of us are there to give him the chance.""... I could try something." Lin said. "If I can get down there, then I can just... walk through everything and then... phase my arm into her brain. If she has one.""That AI should increase my drones' effectiveness." Delta said, suddenly. "I will create a docking port as the hub of the drone network, and Omnissiah can connect to it.""I forgot to put Omni in here!" Summer said, suddenly.
>>25137196and i'd say its well worth it if it saves the entire UPA which is 4 races
>>25137197>>25137202Alex can lower his shield though, and since powers passed down with the machine are passed down with proficiency, it stands to reason she would be able to too.
>>25137205"Excellent idea.Okay, pull Omni in and we can go over final details."
>>25137223We have other options, you're skipping all other possibilities not because you give a shit, but because it's the easiest route.
>>25137205"No no no. All of these are terrible plans. Let's just throw the planet into the sun."
>>25137249How about go fuck yourself?We aren't doing that.
>>25137205"don't fret, he's entangled anyway. break for questions?">>25137184now is not the time for a rousing speech, but soon very soon, it will be
>>25137205"pull him in."having Omni guide ALL the drones ever is a good idea but it might make him go a little crazy again.>>25137246it's also the one most likely to haunt us in the future>>25137249no.
>>25137223It's a last resort, and not one anybody is going to use lightly. If the situation becomes totally unsalvagable, then we can destroy the planet.But not before that.
>>25137263It's the plan which actually means she dies. And the UPA is saved.
>>25137246I'm not skipping anything, I'm saying we should be prepared to wreck the planet if our other options don't work.What would you do if they didn't work, go home? oh wait VQ just blew it up.
>>25137264Omni has been in her universe before, it shouldn't be a problem?
>>25137205"Can you get him in? If not we'll just brief him on the way. That's a good idea. Speaking of taking control, what do you want to do Sigma? Pilot Surya or Wyvern?"
>>25137273which is what i said in the first place, im not >>25137249
>>25137277that was when he wasn't entangled.
>>25137205Let's just manifest that black hole bomb onto her
>>25137275Yeah, because we can totally hook up the entire planet with bubble drives with interference.>>25137276If killing her in person doesn't work we'll likely be dead.
>>25137296The black hole was created when our manifested bubble drive collided with Apocalypse's bubble drive. VQ is on a planet and not in a ship so we can't do that to her.
>>25137296Again, innocent enslaved race.
>>25137277>It isn't the universes that fucks with quantum entanglement, it's time dilated universes"Don't fret, he's entangled anyway." You say. "We'll just brief him on the way. That's a good idea. Speaking of taking control, what do you want to do Sigma? pilot Surya or Wyvern?""... Give me one of the exosuits." Sigma said. "Or Wyvern.""You can have mine." Anna responded. "I've seen you with my ship, and I'm sure you can use an exosuit just as well.""How can I be useful?" Ellie asked.
>>25137317manifest 2 bubble drives and collide them?
>>25137322Nobody cares about some useless aliens when there's people that we actually care about that need saving.
>>25137329"depends, how much practice have you gotten with your suit?"
>>25137351You are wrong. And outvoted.
>>25137351No, you don't care.It's completely out of character to just say "Lol kill everything." Especially when it has little chance of actually working.
>>25137372thats a brilliant argument you have there, and exabutt will be sure to note it down for its pointlessness and having not contributed anythingoh no he wont, he will just ignore you
>>25137372Another fantastic post from the prime shitposter.
>>25137372way to contribute nothing tripfag
>>25137329She wasn't taken off with Lamba &co?"Hit her with a baseball bat! If Alex is shutting down her powers you should be able to run circles around her in your suit."
>>25137377It's not 'lol kill everything', it's a complex and delicate plan that also has the most chance of succeeding in our objective.
>>25137390Even not suggesting ideas is contributing more than suggesting retarded, out of character ideas.>>25137390>>25137403Samefag.
Rolled 14>>25137329Create an entangled router that works in time dilation by automatically adjusting to it
>>25137418yep, samefagging all over the place
>>25137418Those two aren't samefag, >>25137390 and >>25137409 are samefag. Middle guy can use capital letters and periods.
I'm not a tripfag, Im a namefag. If you are going to insult me do it properly.
>>25137329"Help Alex get to the VQ. Alex, you can use my exosuit if you want. Her psionics are most dangerous, but even without them she's still an eight foot tall scythe monster."
>>25137413Well other than the fact that it wont fucking work sure, we'd have to manifest something we barely did the first time, twice, and have them collide on the planet, without VQ interfering at all.
>>25137418Yeah, sure thing, faggot.
"Depends, how much practice have you gotten with your suit?""... Some?" Ellie asked. "I also have a demon bat, if that counts.""Maybe I can manifest two bubble drives and collide them..." You say."It won't work." Jason and Manus said simultaneously."You need quite a bit of power and speed going. Without that momentum, the particles won't collide hard enough or set off that chain reaction. It'd be almost impossible to set them off from lightyears away to collide at the right spot and time." Jason said. "... Wait, have you done that before?""That's how we got rid of the demiurg flagship.""And we're not doing that either." Jilly said. "Not unless we really, really need to."
>>25137413And one that none of the characters save maybe Delta would go with unless it was the absolute last resort.It's the most efficient way to solve the problem. That doesn't mean it isn't a fucking horrible way.
I think it'd be wildly out of character for Heather to go with the scorched earth policy of just killing everyone. Heather has the hero complex, remember? She wants to save everyone.If Heather can save everyone, she'll at least try. That being said, if it comes down to either saving VQ's race or saving even ONE of the inhabited UPA worlds...that's not much of a choice.
>>25137440Barely succeeding in something we can prepare in is better than rushing out to fight something described as with 'power you could hardly believe' and called Devi not very powerful
>>25137473We have plenty of counter measures against her to make fighting her possible.
>>25137457"Fuck off Jilly. That's the plan and it's what we're doing."
>>25137457"I'd like to avoid it.Everything hinges on that first strike. If we throw her off with that first lightning quick attack, it's all over for her."
>>25137494No, its not, get fucked.
>>25137457"think about it Ellie, you impose limits and restrictions on psions, what can you think of that might help? we'll need a couple of spare nuclear reactors to power everyone, Jason, Manus do you know where we can get a couple of small ones? or alternately do you think we can get a governmental full pardon for someone who can(anyone remember newt?) cause that might help things....
Alright we have a tentative if fairly stupid plan ready. Shall we get to it? We have about an hour before the first ship hits the first world.
>>25137457"Yeah, it would be nice to save the Kliktik. Theta, can you make Sarvesh more durable in case his 'not get hit' plan doesn't work out?"
>>25137504Shield that can deflect psionics on our exosuit, clay that makes it impossible to mind control us, fucking Alex.
>>25137507We have Helios who has a ridiculous power output. Anything larger probably wouldn't be portable. We're already stuffing a lot of people onto the two ships.
can't think of a meaningful contribution at this point but I sure as hell am not backing the Planet x sun plan
>>25137507>>25137457>>25137532or something portable with just sufficient power output for someone who drains the shit out of stuff. we won't be ship board for all of it, just a lot.
Do you fuckers have any idea how -far- planets are from their star? "Hyurr let's use supertilkensis" IT WOULD TAKE MONTHS!The black hole thing would work as a last resort, but we only did it once, we only had no manifest one bubble drive, and it was on a god-damn 100. Not to mention if we're in system it's guaranteed to kill us too. Honestly Alex punching her is not only the most in-character choice, it's also the most likely to succeed of any current plans, so you murderboner jackasses can stuff it.
>>25137520So, two tiny shields.If the clay was really going to block her, I doubt we'd have Jilly saying she's going to block her mental powers.Alex has already said his powers are exhausting.
>>25137551We can try to solar power and let Theta drain that? We're less practised than Anna but sunlight is way more plentiful than nuclear reactors.
Whatever happens, I have faith in the dice.To kill Heather in the most awesomest way.
>>25137520I think the clay also stops her from manifesting nukes on our head, but I'm not sure about that one.
>>25137572and if we're fighting on the night side of the planet?
"I'd like to avoid it." You say. "Everything hinges on that first strike. If we throw her off with that first lightning quick attack, it's all over for her.""So first we come in through bubble drive in orbit." Manus said, tapping his chin. "Delta, Theta, Omni and Anna are in... the wyvern, perhaps?" He asked. "And they work on fighting the ships in orbit. Devourer and Sarvesh teleport down, and start distracting her, while everyone else makes to land.""We also have the beluga." Newt said. "And we can tear one of the nuclear engines from the station and put it on that, with Theta, Anna and Delta on that ship instead. I can pilot it, while Sigma pilots the wyvern.""And I can teleport Theta around to heal anyone who gets hurt, I guess." Robin said. "Because none of you are allowed to die. Else Heather and I will pout at you.""Theta, can you make Sarvesh more durable in case his 'not get hit' plan doesn't work out?""Right." He said, and put his palm on Sarvesh's shoulder.His lower arms pumped up, and out... becoming another set of pincers, as his shell hardened. The ground started to quake as Sarvesh swelled, slightly, becoming nearly twice as dense, as more carapace swelled over his body, becoming a veritable juggernaut of shell."I also refilled your moult cells." Theta said.
>>25137566Only when he goes full pariah mode, otherwise he's just passively invulnerable to psionics. The clay has works all this time to prevent her was mindfucking or manifesting anything on the station two shields is all you need when your target is 10 ft away from you.
>>25137582>Implying she won't light herself on fire and die from her own fuck up pathetically.
>>25137593>Newt>Neva, even. Damnit, 4-letter-N names.
>>25137591Isaac can spin it around and make it day!
>>25137593Oh shit! What if we turn the old station...into a battle station!
>>25137593>"We also have the beluga." Newt said.Where the fuck did she come from and what's the beluga?
>>25137628Sarvesh needs another few years before he can move something as large as a battlestation
>>25137640>Newt's a councilor, who came along with Jason and Manus. Also, the Beluga is the station's shuttle.
>>25137593Sigma in the wyvern, support team in Beluga, we can ask Delta to beef up the Beluga to tank status, maybe make some modifications to Wyvern and Surya?
>>25137658You mean Nava.
>>25137658I think you mean Neva again.
>>25137658>Neva, even, goddamnit.
>>25137593"yeah great. three ships against numberless amounts."yeah, rip.
>>25137658Newt's not a councilor she's a wanted criminal. You corrected youself in >>25137605 and then uncorrected yourself again?
>>25137624I seriously doubt that he has the control and he'd likely hurl a great deal of stuff off the planet with the centripetal forces.>>25137640see>>25137605
>>25137593<How would I pout after I've sacrificed myself to save everyone?>
"Holy crap you turned Sarv into a tank!"
>>25137673I think you're forgetting a key part of the plan.Delta manifesting a shitload of ships as soon as we get there.
>>25137593"Anyone else got anything to say, or are we ready to rumble?"
Can Omni control an entire fleet without going full THIRTEEN THOUSAND YEARS on us? Because I'd rather avoid a second instance of that.
>>25137694Omni can stay in the Beluga as well to direct Delta's ships.Beluga need to be really, REALLY tough for this.
>>25137714I'm pretty sure he'll have to pump himself up, yes.
>>25137593"Right, so, that's the entry plan worked out, more or less. Once we actually get down to the planet, we can hopefully land either on top of the VQ or very close by, make our way there, and engage. Alex can wear my exosuit and punch her in the face, I think I would be best playing support for him with Isaac, Ellie, Summer, Jilly and the others. He'll get more use out of it than I would.And yeah, what Robin said. If anybody dies, I will reach across the veil and pout at you until the end of time. Clear? Everybody is coming home."
>>25137714Remember, he was in really basic shit demiurg equipment when he performed every calculation for making bubble drive jumps without hitting anything or being connected to the network perfectly on his own. I'm sure he can handle a few drones as he is.
Let us have a small ceremony for all ships that we fight with "This machine is discharged into your care. Fight with this machine, and guard it from the shame of defeat. Serve this machine, as you would have fight it for you."
>>25137714do we have a supercomputer to load him into?>>25137593delta, can you build up a supercomputer to load omni into? it would likely improve our chances to having him thinking at maximum speed for the assault, that way we could leave the pair of you in the beluga behind a veritable WALL OF STEEL to orchestrate the drones freeing up anna and sigma to blast about
>>25137593"If the Beluga is going to be the control point and spawn point for Delta's manifested fleet, you'll need to deck it out in some super thick armour."
>>25137750Lets get Delta to manifest us a new suit as well, don't want to go in unarmored.
>>25137724It isn't. Its bubble drive is as slow as shit as well. Why are we even using it, it sounds like a liability.
>>25137779What's wrong with our old suit?
<Queen Anna. You've no permission to die, the pirate playtime jamboree hasn't even started yet.>
>>25137795Alex is wearing it.
>>25137775Anna needs to be with Theta and Delta to act as a psionic battery. That's what is going to let him spawn enough ships to give us a fighting chance.Wyvern can fly in atmosphere, right? It might be an idea to have Sigma harass the VQs personal guard from the sky. Her talents would rather be wasted in a gigantic orbital fleet melee.
"I likely have brain damage and my memory was damaged when I was a kid. And yet, I am still the number fucking one in the Galaxy when it comes to SCIENCE. We're taking her down."
>>25137797Nobody has permission to die. Better we tell that to everyone at once rather than just Anna.
>>25137804>>25137795since when?he can wear a delta-made our suit is ours, and it's plumbed for a girl.>>25137817I suppose I see
>>25137804That seems counter-productive to him punching the Void Queen to disrupt all her shit. He won't be touching her with his power if he's encased in metal.
>>25137593Hello, idea.We charge up one of the spare heat crystals, then we drop/teleport it onto the planet and watch the fireworks.
>>25137837He can't wear a delta made suit because manifestation.Ours is built by hand. He can wear ours, we can wear a delta suit.
"Holy crap, you turned Sarv into a tank!""I can't do that with the rest of you, because we don't have enough time to learn how to use them as well as our actual bodies." Theta said."Any chance of using the old station as a battle station?""We don't have enough power to activate the bubble drives in it all at once, enough to move it." Jason said."Delta, can you upgrade the Beluga? Beef it up to tank status?""Give me a moment." Delta said, and closed his eyes. He mumbled to himself, and nodded. "No. I will construct a new ship for this use."Then, in a colder voice, he continued. "This recabulator must be worth it.""Right, so that's the entry plan worked out, more or less. Sigma in the wyvern, support team in ...""Defense Ship." Delta said."And the rest of us in Surya." You say. "Once we get down to the planet, we can hopefully land either on top of the VQ or very close by, make our way there, and engage. Alex can wear my exosuit and punch her in the face. I think I would be best playing support for him with Isaac, Ellie, Summer, Jilly and the others. He'll get more use out of it than I would.""I should go into the Beluga." Jilly said. "Er, defense ship. Whatever it's called. In orbit. I can do things from up there.""It might be an idea to have Sigma harass the VQs personal guard from the sky. Her talents would rather be wasted in a gigantic orbital fleet melee.""She can make Wyvern dance like I've never seen." Anna responded.
>>25137835Robin already did that bit.>Because none of you are allowed to die. Else Heather and I will pout at you.
>>25137844It'd take days, perhaps weeks to reach the temperature that would be required to act as a planet buster.
>>25137874Anon, guess where we are.In a time-bubble moving at months in seconds.
>>25137861>Then, in a colder voice, he continued. "This recabulator must be worth it."Fucking Delta. Won't even fight for his own survival unless there's cool tech in it for him.
>>25137861>Defense ShipOh Delta, you lovably autistic jackass.
>>25137861"Listen up you autistic shit. This fight isn't about recabulators or not. This is about survival. You don't want to be killed and mind controlled? Then help us."
Rolled 4>>25137861manifest a small one, hand it to him.I'll make you the bigger one later, it's fiddly. use this to make some improvements
>>25137861"Right then. Is that everything?"
>>25137887Either way it's probably a bad idea. All it would take is VQ poking it and we'd be caught in the fireworks.And we already agreed not to glass the planet unless everything else has already failed.
>>25137861we probably shouldn't push for Delta to do much more in our plan."good, great! Sigma, are you okay with that?"
>>25137909Let's not provoke any of our team members.
>>25137911No giving him payment in advance. He'd just cut and run when danger showed up if there was nothing left in it for him, he doesn't give a shit about us.
Rolled 3>>25137945he'd only have the small one, not the 36 inch one
>>25137936he can't even emote. it's not like we're provoking him.
>>25137861"I... Think that's everything, then.You guys want to a cheesy hands in routine before we go? Group hug maybe?"
>>25137955STOP WITH YOUR SHIT IDEAS
ENGINEERING TIME!We know that VQ can manifest nukes, but the blast of a nuke won't work in a vacuum, we'll only have to worry about radiation (and heat, but that's technically radiation). What's a great shield for that? Water! If Delta can manifest lots of water around our ships, we'll be much safer from nukes.
>>25137955once he gets his hands on an actual recabulator he can manifest one of any size he wants.we don't give him any until we're done.
>>25137955Nah, we're not giving him advance payment. He's a liability if we do.
>>25137965Unless she manifests the nukes in the water, then we're fucked. The plan is to teleport in so she can't focus on making nukes, I think.
>>25137955Who says he can't manifest himself all the sizes he wants once he has the machine? Also wow those rolls are shit, take your dice off.
>>25137976>>25137974>>25137964>>25137995and if we give him one he could make a shitload of improvements to ALL OF THE TECH
>>25138004and he could potentially leave because "I don't want to die."
>>25137861Can we pull Damien in here and wait a few hours for him to wake up?
>>25138004Not really. And he would have no reason to.
"Good, great! Sigma, are you okay with that?" "Yeah." She said."I will also provide all of you with exosuits on the way." Delta said. "It wouldn't do to have you killed. Robin, I expect you are capable of teleporting between ships.""Yeah." Robin said. "... Wait, you know my name?"Delta didn't respond."I... think that's everything, then." You say. "You guys want a cheesy hands in routine before we go? Group hug, maybe?"Sarvesh, with his new, tougher, larger body, pulled everyone- even Delta- into a hug, and Jilly supplemented that with her tail.Lin was quiet, and took a deep breath. "Well... This won't be the first time I'll be in a life or death situation. It's just important that you guys all stay calm.""Be careful." Ellie said."I'll be fine." Lin said. "It's you who needs to be careful.""Alright!" She said, and kissed him on the forehead."Are you guys ready to be pulled out? We'll have to set off as soon as possible." Summer asked. "I couldn't speed us up much more than like, five times normal, since there's so many of us. I won't be able to bring us- or anyone- in again for a bit.">Are you ready to be pulled out?
Moving puppets, made from imagination.Nuclear infernos, available on call.Tendrils of enslavement.Ships unnumbered.The enemy that Heather and hercompanions must stand up againsthas grown to such an enormous scale.Do they even stand a chance against thisvile and powerful nemesis?No, common sense must be ignored in asituation such as this.Even if there is only a one-in-a-billion chanceof victory, that means there is also aone-in-a-billion opportunity of turning thetables completely.
>>25138056this shit plan is gonna get us killed.Sun buster is best plan.
>>25138056"I don't think there's much more we can talk about.Let's do this thing."
>>25138056"Let's save the galaxy!"
>>25138056I can't think of anything else, we need to ask Omni about controlling the manifest-ships.
>>25138056"When we first discovered the Void Queen, we learned she was trying to enslaves all Psions. But she wasn't trying to enslave us, she was trying to kill us. She's afraid of us, and we're going to show her why she's afraid."
>>25138081And simultaneously the worst plan.
>>25138081It's really not. It wouldn't even kill her.
>>25138081Sun buster is an unworkable piece of shit
"When we first discovered the void queen, we learned she was trying to enslave all psions." You say. "But she wasn't trying to enslave us, she was trying to kill us. She's afraid of us. And we're going to show her why she's afraid."You give everyone another hug."Let's do this thing."You landed on the cafeteria again, and Omnissiah was just coming in."You're coming with us." Delta said. "We will use you to help us defeat the void queen."Omnissiah chirped, and followed him."Us three will stay here, do what we can." Neva said. "Let's get to the control room."Sarvesh, Devourer, you can come with me and the Wyvern." Sigma said.Anna, Jilly, Robin and Theta followed Delta and Omnissiah as they headed toward an empty hangar.You, Lin, Alex, Ellie, and Summer simply met one another's eyes, the last ones there. You made your way to the Surya, quickly, and strapped yourselves in.<I'm scared.> Alex told you over the personacom.And then Max tromped in."Jason told me the plan." He said. "I may as well come with you."
>>25138189<"I think we all are. Remember what Robin said. Don't Die. And I'll do the same.">
>>25138189<I think everyone is scared, Alex. But we can't let the whole UPA be wiped out.>Yay, Max! He can sniff at the Void Queen!Really, why does he have such a crap specialisation?
>>25138189<You're not the only one. I'm beyond scared. I'm standing on the mouth of a Void and it is going to swallow me whole... and it'll choke on me. She wants an apocalypse? Well, we'll give her one. We're an army. We've declared war. From now on, we won't just face her, we will seek her out. We will find her and slap her shit. There is only one thing in this galaxy more powerful than her. And that's us.>
Guys, why should we throw the planet into a sun, when we could throw a sun into it?Move a gas giant at it, then collapse it into a sun.
>>25138189"Glad to have you on board Max"<I am too, but if we don't do this millions of lives will be wasted because of one greedy bitch on a power trip. have faith and don't let fear cloud your mind>>I hope it is just one greedy bitch on a power trip.
>>25138278because way more work
>>25138278There might not even be a gas giant in that solar system?
>>25138278My don't we just manifest a tiny sun, wear it over our tabbard, and give her a hug while being grossly incandescent?
>>25138278Because apparently saving some bumfuck aliens is more important than everyone else.
>>25138301Why don't we just ask her out and show her the time of her life and eventually become the Void King?
"Glad to have you on board, Max."Max nodded.<I think everyone is scared, Alex.> You say. <You're not the only one.>Everything was still blood-red, colored by your perception. Ellie put the helmet on her suit, and it hissed closed.<"She wants an apocalypse? Well, we'll give her one. We're an army. We've declared war. From now on, we won't just face her, we'll seek her out.">You slam on the thrusters, shooting out of the hangar. You'd gotten a lot better at manuvering, now. You hit the navigational computer, and punch in the coordinates for the system.You weren't sure where you got them from.<"We'll find her, and slap her shit. There's only one thing in this galaxy more powerful than her. And that's us.">You flip on the bubble drive, and Wyvern did too, the glow starting to come from her- and then the large, bulky 'Defense Ship' started up as well, and tore off into space.Some time later, while you sat there, waiting, Robin appeared in a cloud of black smoke."Alright." She said. "How many of you have suits and need them?""I'll be wearing Heather's." Alex said. "So she'll need one, Summer should need one, and Max will. Will you, Lin?""I'd just have to phase it, and that'll be hard." Lin said. "Don't get one for me.""Alright." Robin said, and vanished. She came back a few moments later, with a suit exactly like your normal one, alongside one wolf-shaped, and one tiger-shaped. Robin huffed, and relaxed for a moment, floating in zero-G.
>>25138278>Moving a planet into a sun quickly enough to matter is simply impossible.>GUYS LETS MOVE THIS EVEN LARGER AND HEAVIER OBJECT AND THEN DO SOMETHING EVEN MORE IMPOSSIBLE WITH IT!
>>25138349>huffed<Wotcher huffing, m'lady?>
>>25138349"Oh yeah, I forgot the whole point of using Knowledge in all that faff. Rose does have her own power that she hasn't discovered yet. I don't know what it is but it's different from yours."
>>25138349>A fucking tiger in an exosuitJesus Christ that's horrifying
>>25138384Not as scary as a Centaur in one.
>>25138420or as Sarvesh is now, a Tanktaur.
>>25138384>Wolf exosuitI'm picturing something along the lines of this...
>>25138349We all have some of the clay right?Cause I don't remember giving Delta any.You know, the guy this entire plan hinges on?
>>25138503Jilly said she can protect him from mindrape, and she'll be in the support squad.
>>25138513And we're not reinforcing his mind anyway why?
>>25138503He'll be stuck in a small ship with plenty of other people who are holding clay. That stuff protects an area, you know. Also one of them is Jilly.
>>25138503We don't really know the range of the clay. Just having him on the same ship as the others is probably enough.Though you do make a good point, it should be fine.
"Oh yeah, I forgot the whole point of using Knowledge in all that faff." You say. "Rose does have her own power, but she hasn't discovered it yet. I don't know what it is, but it's different than yours.""... Is it?" She asked, eyes wide. "It's a good thing I gave her some of my clay, then. I just hope we can make it back."She stretched."Alright..." She said. "Good luck. And... Well, thank you."She gave you a tight hug, and then vanished into smoke again.Max and Summer got into their exosuit, and then you made your way into your delta-made one as well, before sitting back in the seat. "We're close." Max said, his mechanized voice booming from his suit, as he examined the navigational computer. "Is everyone ready?""Yes, we're ready." You hear Sigma say over the radio."We are as well." Delta said.Max turned to you, and nodded, strapping himself down in preparation for breaking.Tentatively, Anna touched your mind.<... Hey, after this.> She said. <We need to have a talk. Alright?>
>>25138551<Yeah. Be safe.>
>>25138551<That's if we don't all die.>
>>25138551<alright, stay safe, okay?>prepare for the inevitable trap VQ has laid out for us.
>>25138580Bit negative, ain't it?Though asking to talk before the climactic battle is a massive death flag.
>>25138551Give her a mental expression of LUV!No words,only LUV.
>>25138551<After this we will all probably want lots of food and sleep. But after that we can talk.>
>>25138580to negative, even if its like that.
<Sure.> You say. <Be safe.><I will.> She said."Defense ship has arrived in system." Delta said. "Beginning fabrication."Surya blasted into system, and you saw a large, silver, blocky ship, those 'forcefields' on every available surface, pointing outward. As you watched, hundreds of drones appeared in a moment, assembling themselves, as demiurg ships started manifesting themselves in system, starting the battle.The planet itself was silent, quiet. Almost a green, healthy, garden planet, with with great glowing lights coming from the surface. Something was... wrong about it. It looked pure, and pristine.It was also the only thing that your mind didn't percieve as red.Something started to screech, to grab at your mind- But something else held it fast. Like a sprouting, branching tree, protective, insulating you from the screech, Jilly reached out.For a moment, you were Everyone. You were Max, smelling the Void queen on the northern pole of the planet below. You were Sigma and Wyvern, twisting through the air and carving a hole through manifested ships. You were Sarvesh, and Devourer, both teleporting down to the surface. You were Anna and Theta, transferring energy. Delta, weaving complex schematics in his head.You could feel everyone's thoughts, and movements. All part of the same tree, the same mind, connected. Whole.And below, was the planet itself. Just as whole as you were.>What do?
>>25138686>Also, I totally forgot Isaac. He's in Surya with an exosuit as well.
>>25138686Wake up the planet, awaken it, let it fight back against that bitch.
>>25138686Land on top of her.
>>25138721>Awaken planetI can't help but think that would put us down for the entire fight, and that the planet might be favorable to its own.
>>25138686she's on the northern pole, make our way there.>is obviously what she wants us to do but I can't figure out what else to do.>the planet itself. Just as whole as you were.as in the entire planet? not just the population?
>>25138686Let's direct everyone, TacCom style. I mean, we weren't doing anything specific in the plan, and we're in a unique position to do so now.
Rolled 12>>25138686Awaken the planet. Make it become our friend.
>>25138768>Rolling without it being called forStop that.
>>25138752>Let's direct everyone, TacCom style.That's kind of Jilly's job. She's in everybody's brain communicating with everybody. She's perfect for overwatch.
>>25138752Yes, seconding this idea.
>>25138721Won't this basically take us out of the fight?I mean, we don't have a fantastically essential role, but we should probably give directions out first, if we're going to do that.And we don't know if the planet will even fight the VQ or not, or even if it can fight.
>>25138751I think he means the planet, and I don't think it likes the VQ as she's been mind controlling its population.
>>25138686Land, not sure how long sarvesh and devi can hold her off but we don't want her getting either of their powers.
>>25138796She's linking everyone, yes, but we can issue orders.I can't help but think her waiting for us on the north pole is a trap, but at the same time I'm inclined to do just that.
>>25138721>>25138768No, last time we tried to awaken a space station we felt like crap, and a planet is a whole lot bigger. I'd rather we not go into a coma at the start of a really brutal battle which requires zero fuckups.
Stick to the plan. Let's get to the north pole, but be wary. We have to be ready to defend against what is probably a trap.
>>25138752Everyone already has their job, we need to do ours, which is landing this ship and punching VQ in the face.
>>25138829But she can also issue orders and she can coordinate people a lot better which would free us up to concentrate on the fight. And I'd like for Jilly to actually do something for a change because she never comes on our adventures.
>>25138870Punching VQ in the face is Alex's job.But we do need to land this ship. Until then, we can't do anything that risks us getting KOed.
You are Sarvesh.You appear in a forest, somewhere, alien trees spanning all around you. Almost a dozen kliktik charge, hissing, their scythes ready. You wouldn't be useless this time, you thought, as you raised both pincers for battle. An explosion burst above your head, a cacaphony deafening you. You kept your focus, and as it burned away the trees and aliens, you stayed standing.You are Devourer.Growing, swarming, consuming.You burst free from the kliktik you teleported inside, writhing and swelling, all of your tendrils growing blades at the end. You were in a city, somewhere. More explosions manifested above you, but you ignored them.You are Delta.Fabrication. Kinetic spreadshot drone, Laser Drone. Plasma Drone. Kinetic Spreadshot Drone. Fabrication.You are Heather."Let's go." You say, and shot down toward the planet."I can take care of the inertia." Isaac said. "No need to land. Just get us there."You slammed on the thrusters, and shot down toward the north pole. There was a great, stone fortress there, centuries and centuries old. The atmosphere started slowing you, dragging you down, and you wheeled around your heat shield.That's when the anti-air turrets wheeled toward you, firing spreadshot. Isaac deflected most of it, as it all missed. That's when yet another nuclear bomb appeared in front of you.>Field too long!
>>25138917I forget, was Summer on nuke cleanup duty or not?
>>25138917>Field too long!If this explodes with us getting a chance to denuke it imma be pissed.
>>25138947Summer will do... something, once she reaches land.
>>25138958I'm pretty sure I meant to say that she could be on nuke duty.Fuck, I knew I was forgetting something.
>>25138958Summer creates universes, still useless in the final fight.Full circle.
And then, the bomb fell into a rift- just as it exploded, a slight amount of the blast leaking out.Next thing you knew, you slammed your helmet into your console. Everything was spinning, and you were getting dizzy. Summer's straps had snapped, and her exosuit was bouncing around the surya as it spun, crashing into the walls and floor.You look at your data, and quickly find that you were entirely intact, the nuke The blast shield in front of you was cracked, open to the insides of the ship, and through it, you could see the fortress. Isaac raised both hands, and you suddenly felt weightless- and when you opened your eyes again, everything was still.Surya was perfectly intact. Isaac pushed himself- and everyone- to their feet, and Max opened Surya's hatch, peering out the ramp.Not far from here, Kliktik were standing, all exosuited, standing on the walls of the fortress, mounted weapons at the ready. Summer's eyes were closed, focused."Don't worry, I can protect us." Isaac said.Then their lasers started whining, capacitors charging."... Lasers. Shit. Nevermind." He said.>What do? Roll if using psionic powers.
>>25139016>the nuke having done nothing to Surya other than rattle it around.
Rolled 9>>25139016Eat the lasers.
Rolled 77>>25139016Convert bits of them to energy.
Rolled 89>>25139016Lazers, lol, black hole generators.
Rolled 43>>25139016can Isaac on short notice, produce a material so dense it'll stop lasers for a time by crushing the walls/ground the Kliktik are standing on?
Rolled 57>>25139016Protect everyone from the lasers as we go in with photokinesis. Absorb them if possible otherwise just deflect them.
Rolled 62>>25139016TK Finesse with just a touch of strength. Quick jabs at the focusing lens in each laser. Any damage to the lens, even a tiny crack, will pretty much ruin a laser weapon entirely.Tell Isaac to do the same. Just wreck all of the turrets.
>>25139094this sounds the best.
Rolled 16>>25139094Shields up?
>>25139068And by this I mean black hole the lazer guns.
>>25139094Well we are pretty awesome at TK, so it might work.
>>25139124She can fix them with her mind, major damage will last longer.
Rolled 76>>25139016Controll lasers
>>25139136It gives us an opening to get inside, and it stretches her powers even wider.Basically, the more we ruin her day, the easier it becomes to ruin her day even further. If we can keep the pressure on, her ability to fight back will only decline.Unless she reveals her final form and turns into an angel made of snakes and eyes or some shit.
You thought something, and through Jilly, Isaac went through with your idea instantly. He raised a hand, and the wall shook, splitting, and started to collapse.For good measure, you continued on by punching out each of the focusing lenses, one by one.They sparked, lightning shooting from them, and at least one of the exosuits started smoking, breaking down, and some of the lasers got a blast off, scoring a large line off of your ship. You and Isaac raised your shields, the lasers deflecting off into the side, burning more holes into the side of your blast shield. You'd have to leave the ship if you didn't want it any more damaged.On the other side of the collapsing wall, almost two hundred unarmored kliktik started tromping forward.That's when Summer's eyes opened.And the ground started to shake, and your heart started to pound.Behind you, behind Surya, a grand rift opened. With electricity dancing along the end of their lances, silver knights shot out, riding along silver destriers. All of their armor was dented, scratched, and clawed.They, as a fictional people, practiced for a century for this day, you knew, as the arrow formations started to crash against the kliktik."I can keep this up." Summer said. "For as long as you need. Can't really move."Behind the wall, more aliens started manifesting themselves, none of them with any technological gear. Seemed the void queen couldn't spare the focus to use technological manifestations right now.
>>25139016We need to get the message to Sarvesh and Devi of where she is.
>>25139094Why not tell Isaac to do that and make the shots that make it miss with photokinesis?
>>25139209Charge!Get out of poor Surya so it doesn't take any more damage. Why didn't we protect it from the lasers?
>>25139209Get the message of where she is to Sarvesh and Devi, start whirring up the plasma cannon. We can take down the back ranks and advance upon the void queen.
>>25139209"She can't manifest any tech right now because of how stretched her lines are, so those lasers are all she has. Isaac, help me wreck them and we're free to charge."Destroy the remaining lasers and then make a mad dash to the castle. Also check where in the castle the VQ is.
>>25139209I don't like leaving Summer alone up here, we need someone to stay with her and protect her, Jilly will probably stay there as well."can you protect yourself while doing this?"will probably have Isaac or Lin stay if she can't.>>25139283they've picked up on that already, through Jilly's link.they are keeping VQ's focus elsewhere.
>>25139368She has a kajillion knights, she's not alone. And she can always retreat into her universe and be completely invulnerable.
>>25139368Never mind then, but whir up the plasma cannon anyways, get isaac to tk our stream so VQ cant turn it back at us.
You start up your ion laser, and clamber out of the ship, holding it up. More manifestations thundered past you, clashing against the kliktik, endlessly. The faceless knights were perfect in stature, their focused power crushing through the alien defense. A horn blew, somewhere, and more knights charged through the rift.You instantly let Sarvesh and Devourer know where she is, but both of them returned that they were fighting as well, the constant detonations making it almost impossible to teleport.Soon enough, the first and second lines of defense- the wall and the garrison- were gone, the knights patrolling around it to lance any stragglers. At least, until more aliens from the south started to come, constantly getting closer."She can't manifest any tech right now because of how stretched her lines are." You say. "We're free to charge.""Can you protect yourself while doing this?" you ask."I can try." She said. A dragon tore out of the rift, roaring, and an armored troll, nearly two stories tall, bellowed as it followed, club in hand. "I'm also going to guard Surya if we need to escape."
>>25139437Time for the kill team to move out.
>>25139437"Remember that ou don't have permission to die, flufflebuts."
>>25139437"Jilly, will you join us on our way below?"
>>25139437If this isn't at least 3/4s as awesome as the end to TTGL I'm going to be disappointed, Exa.
>>25139437"I believe in you."Okay, let's charge and make our way to the VQ.
>>25139437"Call out when you need extraction, Robin, when the time comes move her to a new location to continue the fight.">>25139494Jilly's on the defence ship.
>>25139494>>25139524I noticed, I feel so stupid right now.
You, Isaac, Max, Ellie, Lin, and Alex charged. Summer stayed behind, standing up at her full height."Remember that you don't have permission to die, flufflebutt." You say. "I believe in you.""I know." She responded.By the time you got to the entrance to the fortress, the troll was there, and kicked open the great stone doorway, bellowing as the lasers from inside did almost nothing to the trollflesh, simply charring it black. Around you were knights, fighting, and above you were explosions, and blasts from fireworks. Wyvern danced along the sky, lasers scoring the kliktik apart, and kinetic spreadshot slamming into a spacecraft that started to come down. Sigma was covering you from above.<They're coming from outside too much.> Summer said through Jilly's connection- it was instant, as fast as thought, and everyone- even Ellie, save Alex- was connected <I won't be able to help much for inside.><Don't worry, we should be able to deal with it.> Isaac said.Inside the fortress itself were more mounted guns, and more exosuits. Ellie shot off a grappling hook, and with a heavy tug, pulled an alien off of one of the mounted lasers. <Robin, there!>A moment later, Ellie and robin were at the mounted lasers, Ellie grabbing ahold of it and scoring lines into the other mounted guns, melting their bases and causing the entire things to fall to the ground, useless. The entrance was clear.At least, if you didn't count the several dozen exosuited kliktiks, charging toward Ellie.
>>25139630>blasts from fireworks.>Blasts from exploding missiles, almost like fireworks in the upper atmosphere.
>>25139630since our suit is identical to the one we built, lets see how those grenades work...and some music perhapshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFi7bWkyRpA
Rolled 9>>25139630Time to see if technopathy works on the VQ's shit.Ion laser as well in case it doesn't.
Rolled 25>>25139630snap their spines
>>25139630retreat you two!Time for the plasma cannon, wipe those exosuits from existence, enhance our stream with TK to prevent VQ from turning it back at us, get Isaac to help out with this too.
Rolled 90>>25139630Convert them to energyyyyy
Rolled 41>>25139630TK slam them all. We've never actually had much of a chance to really let loose with TK.
Rolled 22>>25139738uh, can we do that?if yes, yes.
>>25139769We can technically, we once completely destroyed something rather than crushed or chrystalized it.
Rolled 17>>25139769Won't that just make radiation go everywhere?Be ready to photokinesis the resulting radiation so it doesn't give anybody a nuclear suntan. Try to direct it to the other suits if possible.
>>25139799We're all in exosuits.
Rolled 66>>25139799Maybe its more trouble than its worth. Just snap their necks/spines/equivalent features
>>25139799What if we also eat the energy.
You, Alex, and Isaac all had the same idea, raising your arms and firing grenades. With a thoomp thoomp thoomp, grenades started unspooling, flying toward the exosuits-Before, with telekinesis, they shot back at you. Isaac caught them in the air as they exploded, small fireballs appearing where they were.<Grenades won't work. She has TK.> Isaac said, instantly through the connection.And so, you raised a hand, and closed your eyes.You'd only done this once before, but you might be able to do this now... You slowly start to convert them to energy.Your limbs burn, and you almost collapse, energy draining from your limbs.<Retreat, you two!> You say, and they vanished. A moment later, on Jilly's order, Theta, Ellie, and Robin appeared next to you, pushing energy into your body. You had that electricity in your limbs, though they still ached, exhausted. Seemed the energy transfer wasn't perfect. Theta and Robin disappeared again."That didn't seem to work." Alex said.In response, Isaac just slammed all of the exosuits into the ceiling, and then the floor again. And back into the ceiling. And down again.
>>25139853"That seemed to work."
>>25139853wade through the gore and tear our way through the walls till we find the VQ
>>25139853Yeah, that was stupid. Now is not the time to field test shit.If we need brute force, we're the second most power telekine. Let's just use that and not do dumb things.
>>25139853"and that did. Time is precious, let's go."
>>25139630>the troll was thereSer Kell?Does he have the Heart?
>>25139853Proceed towards VQ.Let's not draw this out.And for the love of god, let's remember Occam's Razor.
darn, we were doing an average. We know tech pretty well, lets just focus on tripping things that will cause their power to go into over load instead.
>>25139853"Good job Isaac.Now let's move! There's a bitch around here that needs her ass kicked!"
Rolled 72>>25139853goto where
>>25139915>Troll as in a giant, two story tall humanoid with crude armor and a club."And that did. Time is precious, let's go.""Right!" Ellie said.You, Ellie, Isaac, Lin, Alex, and Max charged down through the entrance, Max sniffing and leading you onward. You were wordless, perfect- Everyone knew Max could smell her, and everyone followed. Down and down you went, running down slanted ramps, through hallways. Behind you, now and then, more exosuited kliktik appeared behind you, but they couldn't stop your ion laser.Eventually, you were in a long hallway, far underground, and your connection with Jilly was getting tenuous. You charged forward-And a telekinetic force slammed all of you back, save Alex. that's when most of the stone above you... started to fall, a large stone block slamming between Alex and the rest of your group, blocking you from going onward. The hallway back was still there...It was a very complex, very heavy fortress... And it was designed to collapse, just like this.You could swear you could hear gloating from below you. Isaac held up his arms, and the fortress's collapse stopped."We have to hurry." Max said, and started ramming his shoulder into the stone. "She's moving somewhere. Maybe even further down."From the hallway behind you, more Kliktik charged, scythes at the ready- and your ion laser wasn't heated yet. Ellie twirled her bat, and Lin started wavering, phasing.Isaac didn't move. <I have to focus.> He said. <Damnit.>
>>25140034Lift the stone, move on.
Rolled 90>>25140034<Don't worry we'll take care of them.>Slam them with TK into the wall.
Rolled 88>>25140034stop those suits from getting close with TK until Gae Bolg cools.
>>25140034Just smash through the floor with TK. Her paths are trapped and long, make your own and go straight there.
Rolled 19>>25140034>Ours is the TK that will pierce the Stone
>>25140034"Rho, get everyone pass that stone, Ill hold them off, get me last."
>>25140094>>25140099Better.Stick to what we're good at.
Rolled 38>>25140034Are we, or are we not, telekinetic? Pressure wave those motherfuckers into the terrain.
>>25140134Or hell, just have her disintirate the stone.
Rolled 48>>25140034laser beams!! !
<Don't worry, we'll take care of them.> You say, and slam them into the wall with telekinesis. And then into the other. You smashed them like bugs against the windshield, carpace cracking and crumpling.<Robin, get-> You try to say, when something laughed.Something that wasn't Jilly.The laughing got louder, deafening you. Your head pounded- and quite suddenly, nothing was red anymore. Your connection with Jilly- and, by extension, the others- were lost."Can't you raise this, Isaac?" Ellie asked."Focusing. Lots of things to lift." He said, with a grunt, and shook his head.Max focused, and the stone trembled, slowly starting to rise."Shit shit shit!" You heard Alex calling, on the other side, with the sound of a struggle.Ever more alien started coming from behind. Ellie smashed into one with her bat, and Lin phased through some very important parts of some of them, killing them almost instantly."There are more coming." Max said. His nose was bleeding, you sensed. "We need to lift. Not... strong enough myself."
Rolled 68>>25140269lets see if we even lift
Rolled 78>>25140269Black hole a pathway through the rubble, and then a pathway to the level below us.
Rolled 58>>25140269"Isaac, do you even lift?"TK LIFT
>>25139209I am late in this, but my god Summer, you are the absolute best girl ever.
Rolled 27>>25140269>Heather's face when Void Queen
>>25140301yes we can lift
Rolled 14>>25140301>4thFuck.>>25140269Let's be the fucking drill that goes through everything.
Rolled 73>>25140269No we won't lift. We'll throw these at them. Barricade ourselves from them.
>>251403233rd rolling for TK lift, ones a black hole.
>>25140269help lift the rocks, "Hold on Alex! Ellie, Lin, I can't support you for a moment! Max, don't over exert yourself"oh god, Jilly!>need to sleep.>sometimes i curse needing to sleep.
>>25140334Still the 4th roll.
>>25140269Oh noesHope Jilly is okay.
>>25140269We need to get down, right? Use the experimental omni-shield on our suit to burrow downwards!
Rolled 26>>25140269kill alien
>>25140334>It's always the first three rolls, regardless of what the roll is for. This is so that you don't vote on certain things specifically because it has a high roll attached to it.You grit your teeth, and heft up the wall with telekinesis, holding it in place. On the other side, Alex punched the kliktik again, and a third time, with your exosuit. Then he wheeled around the forcefield shields, and plunged it into the alien's head. Max focused, trembling- and collapsed, unconscious. The wall started to fall, but you, Ellie, and Alex caught it with your exosuits, holding it up."Can't... move." Isaac said, gritting his teeth. "She's... manifesting more stone on top. More weight.""Fuck." Lin said, as more kliktik came from both ends of the hallway. Your ion laser was recharged, so you blasted the side with more aliens in it while Lin held off the other side with telekinesis. "Max is out and Isaac can't move. Any ideas?"
>>25140405We need to get out of this hallway first, and I'd rather have Robin find shortcuts for us and disintegrate the floor herself.
>>25140405Yeah, the shields just disintegrate shit, they could go through that rock like butter. We need to get through the wall and stop Alex from dying before we can go down.
Rolled 67>>25140443Nope no ideas here lol
>>25140443"Rho, we need a shortcut."
Rolled 71>>25140443Bore a hole to the level below us with a black hole.
Rolled 99>>25140443"Cut a channel into the floor, so we can hide when the rock comes down.""Use the force shields on my exosuit!"Also use black-holing to make more space/
>>25140443Supporting using the shields to drill straight down towards VQ.>This is so that you don't vote on certain things specifically because it has a high roll attached to it.But we do that anyway even if it doesn't make sense. High rolls means the idea has the dice god's approval.
>>25140443"We must keep moving. How about we try to use these rocks against them? Pile it upon their heads and thus secure our backs. Meanwhile we will try to get Max and Isaac out of here on our backs."
>>25140467They make shit explode in your face at the same time.>>25140513Rho can disintegrate shit without it making her tired.
>>25140551I'm saying that WE use a black hole to bore a hole to the level below us. Not Rho.
>>25140529Cool roll bro
>>25140551Our face is under a massive steel exosuit, it will be fine. If these things can't handle a couple of flying stones then we're screwed anyway.>>25140565And he's saying that's a terrible idea.
Rolled 60>>25140443>alex's power has some range on it?"alex, full pariah pulse it on""Isaac I'm gonna bore a hole support the arch, we can't beat her with power so we beat her with brains"black hole an arch in the stone in our way, fuse it with the ion laser, an circular tunnel in stone, especially underground supporting compressive forces is the strongest shape you can build with.then brace the tunnel with manifested materials
Rolled 87>>25140603If Alex goes Pariah, then Isaac can't lift, and the non-manifested stone falls.
>>25140603I like this plan.
>>25140551>>25140487>Rho teleported away. All the way back at the entrance.You reach out to Robin again- but that laughing was there, white noise, making it impossible to telepath very far."Use the forcefields on my exosuit!" You say.Alex looked down at his shields- and nodded. You, and him start boring a long deep hole, and soon enough, you collapsed on the ground in a massive cavern, far underground. You caught Max's unconscious body as Ellie pushed it in the hole, and then a great block manifested itself in the ceiling, fifty yards up, sealing up the hole you'd just created.A moment later, Lin phased through, landing next to you. "More aliens are coming up above, and Isaac can't burrow because he's holding the entire thing up. Ellie's up there pretty much alone." He said.
Rolled 21>>25140646Use the black holes to bore some space underneath Isaac and Ellie so they fall down as well. Both of them should be able to catch their falls with TK and grapplehooks.
Rolled 57>>25140646"Point out where they are, I'll cut out the floor beneath them so they fall down here."TK.
Rolled 48>>25140646Rip a solid chunk of floor out of the ground below where Isaac and Ellie are. Why the fuck didn't he just drop the ceiling and come with us?
>>25140646Fucking VQ, stop splitting the party."Ellie, grab Alex and grapple up so he can touch that block."
Rolled 91>>25140646Port them down.>Just this once, Dice.>Just this once, give us the power to help.
>>25140713won't work, thats real stone.
>>25140713Wait shit, Ellie's the one who isn't here. Whatever, out exosuit has thrusters and stuff.
>>25140701>>25140708>>25140710Or we can blast a hole in the floor with our ion cannon and have Ellie grab him.
>>25140729>a great block manifested itself in the ceiling>manifested
Rolled 42>>25140633good point>>25140646"can you take someone with you when you trick through a floor? how about a pair of people?"(manifest stone, and draw in the unmanifested stone around us, shore up the tunnel before we do anything.)"if you cant well then alex jump up there and demanifest the rock while I grab Isaac and Ellie"then jump up and grab
>>25140646<Hey Ellie get as close to Isaac as possible.>Wait a while then cut a hole beneath Isaac.When they come through, catch them with TK.
>>25140646Better have someone get herr then.
Rolled 40>>25140646"DAMNIT MAN why are you alone? Grab your girl and get her down here!""Then Isaac can drop himself down with that TK crush he can do."
>>25140646This is so fuckin confusing. load of shit.
>>25140799It's not that confusing.We make hole in floor to go through. VQ blocks hole in floor. Ellie and Isaac trapped by themselves on high floor with lots of enemies.
You reach up- and tear that block out with telekinesis.The Void Queen manifested another block there."Damnit!" You say, and grab Alex. With your thrusters, you tried to push him-And your suit didn't get any traction against him, the manifested thrust doing nothing on him while his shield was up."Right!" He said. He turned on his own thrusters, and shot toward the ceiling. He touched it, and demanifested the stone- just as it remanifested itself. He closed his eyes, flying there, and focused... And the hole opened itself up.Ellie fell, smashing into the ground, and a moment later, Isaac did as well.He landed on his back, arms still raised, and there was a massive crash as things started to fall.Then the ceiling started to crumble in. Isaac held it up again, holding up the ceiling."It's getting heavier!" He called. "But there's no fortress anymore. Just... pile of stone. They aren't problem anymore."Ellie pushed herself to her feet."... Where are we?"Around you was pillars, all cracked and broken, symbols carved into them. Ones of... humans, on their planet, holding hands. Centaurs. Nagala. Valk. A rocket, in the sky, the station you lived at... And then there was a carving of Devourer, centuries old.>Field too long!
>>25140878You took this moment to focus, to recount everything. Max was unconscious. Isaac was holding up the ceiling. Ellie, Lin, and Alex were with you... And everyone else was up above, as you were unable to reach them.That's when Sarvesh appeared in a flash of blue, in his full tank form. "I'm here." He said, his mandibles sticking straight out. He took heavy breaths, and looked down to Max. "Almost impossible to teleport. What happened to Maximillian?"
>>25140886"Too much strain. What the hell are all these carvings? How are they so old?"
>>25140886"Passed out, not sure why, we need to keep moving."Pic up Isaac, move him with us.
>>25140886"Overexerted himself. Good to see you Sarvesh. ""Looks like someone had some serious future sight here. "Onwards. We can't stay still.
Rolled 30>>25140886"K.O. from overexertion. Sarvesh, sorry about this but what's the colour of my hair? Can't be too careful."
>>25140886"Just exhausted himself, he should be fine. Can we strap him on your back?""Looks like VQ has somebody who can see the future."
Rolled 51>>25140886He overworked himself with TK trying to help Isaac.It looks as if one of these Klicklic foretold what would happen. Is that why the Void queen is so intent on killing us?
>>25140886"He's knocked out.""This place looks like some prehistoric cavern of some sort. But look at those carvings. It almost seems like... this happened before."
Rolled 26>>25140878>a carving of DevourerWhat does a carving of the devourer look like? Headless humanoid or pile of squiggles?
>>25140886"Conked himself out. We have to go. Time's ticking, and much as I would love to stay and examine these carvings, we need to kill the Void Queen."
Rolled 47>>25140886Use Knowledge on the mural.
>Headless humanoid."Overexerted himself." You say, and pull Isaac onto your shoulder. Still, he trembled, holding up the ceiling. "Sarvesh, sorry about this, but what's the color of my hair?""It's red, why?" He said- And Ellie's bat smashed into his face. His face twisted, his two eyes splitting into six, and he charged into Ellie, smashing her back."He's an imposter!" Ellie called.Sarvesh seemed to grin, and tilt his head.Then he raised his pincers again. All four clicked- and became scythes.
>>25140988Can we stop trying to exhaust ourselves before we even fight VQ?
Rolled 87>>25140998Crush it.Sad sigh.
Rolled 64doge and destroy
Rolled 71>>25140998reduce him to paste.
>>25140998Oh, I guess she got Theta or Devi.
Rolled 88>>25140998ION LASER!NOONE IMPERSONATES THE BEST HUSBANDO
Rolled 44>>25140998TK smash. Turn it to dust, then we have to move.
Rolled 24>>25140998Slam it into the Pillars."HOW DARE YOU IMITATE SARVESH!"
Rolled 100>>25140998dodge and let Alex punch him
>>25141065damn you number 7
Rolled 52>>25141065why now we could have use that
>>25141065FUCK it's the 7th roll.
>>25141065DAMNIT that's the seventh roll.
>>25141065there goes our only 100 for the thread
>>25141065Can we use this to cancel the 1 we'll doubtlessly get later on.
>>25140998>He said- And Ellie's bat smashed into his face. "He's an imposter!" Ellie called.Does Ellie even know about the UV stuff? Ellie's the imposter and Sarvesh was sent to make us trust her!
>>25141076It's cool. This is the first time a 100 hasn't counted and we've had more than one 1 in 7th position to make up for it.
>>25141131Ellie knows these things. Also she's wielding the demonbat, and so we know it's her.
>>25140998"Ellie... How did you know he was an impostor?"
He charged again, and you stepped out of the way, and smashed him with telekinesis, He crumpled to the ground- and growled, pushing himself to his feet once more. It was slow going, though.You throw him through a pillar, with more TK."How DARE you imitate Sarvesh!""How dare I imitate your friends." Anna said, from behind you. She was simply wearing a swimsuit, like she had back on Heaven's Jewel... and she raised a hand, and from behind her, firestorms started to raise. "You're the ones imitating me.""... Ellie, cover Isaac. Take him as far as you can away from me." Alex said. "Lin. Heather. Don't kill me."Then he closed his eyes.And Pariah opened them. He raised his arms, and Anna and Sarvesh started withering, growing old."Why-why would you?!" Jilly whimpered, slithering out from behind a pillar. "It- It hurts. It hurts me. You're hurting me.""You're hurting us.. Alex." A girl's voice came, one you didn't recognize.Pariah wavered, and for a moment, it became Alex.
>>25141171"Keep going Alex! It's not them!"
Rolled 58>>25141178"fuuuuuuuuuuuck off."
Rolled 97>>25141178its working dont stop

>>25141178"Alex, don't hesitate! If we don't stop her she'll kill the real ones!"
>>25141178"Get a hold of yourself Prometheus."

Rolled 41>>25141178"imitating you implies we cared who you were when we started" bash the Jilly and the Nadia throw their corpses at the anna"alex you KNOW that Jilly is safe and sound this is all a LIE"
Rolled 72>>25141178She's using your loved ones against you because she's afraid of you, Alex. Show this bitch what real fear is.
>>25141227>"Get a hold of yourself Prometheus."seconded.
>>25141178"Alex! Don't listen to them! Only ones who are hurt by it are Void Queen's minions! Don't listen to her!"
Rolled 87>>25141178"Ignore them!"
"Keep going, Alex! It's not them!""Please. Don't!" Heather said, coming around from behind another."You *know* that she's safe and sound!" You say. "This is all a lie! She's using your loved ones against you because she's afraid of you, Alex. Show this bitch what real fear is."Alex closed his eyes again.And then a monster opened them. With cold black eyes, shivering skin, something writhing underneath the flesh.Your powers grew cold, and the grinding from above started again."I can't do anything!" Isaac said.The space around Pariah, around that eerie, alien monster started growing dark, empty. The ground writhed beneath it's feet.Like a beam of sunlight in your eyes, blinding you, Knowledge told you something.It was eating away at reality. Pariah was eating away at the building blocks of the universe.And then the ceiling started to collapse, as all of the fakes vanished, melting away and screaming in pain. You heard Lin vomit, and a moment later, you could see again.Isaac was unconscious, Lin was pale, shaking on his hands and knees, and Ellie was shivering uncontrollably. Alex was standing there again, eyes fluttering closed. Exhausted.Surprisingly, you felt... Okay. Not disturbed at all by seeing that... monster as everyone else was.The ceiling started to grind again, and a boulder fell not far from the group. It was caving in.
Rolled 92>>25141350"Good work Alex. Let's go, everyone!"Use Awakening to make the our friends themselves again.
>>25141350"Run! Carry those who can't run!"
Rolled 53>>25141350"We have to move, now!Ellie, grab Lin!"Carry Isaac and Alex with TK. Or, if his shield is up, carry Alex normally and Isaac with TK.
Rolled 10>>25141350RIght, Lets move on. Grab everyone with TK and lets fly towards the voidqueen
Rolled 6>>2514135010 GOTO VOIDQUEEN
>>25141350"I am glad you listened to me. Now let's move! This place is falling apart and we have a bitch to kill!"
>>25141414>>25141404Lets not exhaust ourselves before we have to fight her. We have an exosuit, no need for TK.
Rolled 97now fuck up the VQ
>>25141440The exosuits should give us the strength to physically move our friends out of harms way without using psionics.>>25141396I am interested to see if this works. We're the opposite of Pariah, so perhaps we can undo what Alex did to Ellie and Lin?
>>25141443>>2514121897 in row better stop rolling before that nat 1
>>25141479it doesn't count. Only the top 3 do.
Rolled 83>>25141479Rolling to make you understand dice mechanics.
"We have to move, now!" You say. "Ellie, grab max!"You grab Isaac and Alex, hefting them into the air, your exosuit demanifested by Pariah, and run. Lin pushed himself to his feet, and followed.Behind you, the ceiling started to cave in, as you, Ellie, and Lin charged through the tunnels, increasingly older and unworked the further and further down you went.Finally, you stopped.And there was the Void Queen.All six eyes, all four scythes, four lion-esque paws, claws unsheathed.She stared down at you. And smiled.Then she hovered her foot over what looked like a button- one connected to something underground. Something that your technopathy told you wasn't manifested- it was handmade."A nuclear bomb, it's called." The Void Queen said, and met your eyes. A powerful telepathic force screeched in your mind, and you felt your arms and legs go limp, your powers withering under the onslaught. Every creature on the world, other than you and your friends, were all focusing their psionic potential into your mind, deafening you, blinding you. "You approach a god's throne. Leave the unknowable at my feet, and I will let you, and the rest of your people, live."
>>25141531"A threat you dare not use is no threat at all. If you press that button, we both die. Gods and mortals alike.Stalemate."
>>25141515i know >>25141518it was direcetd to myself to stop rolling before i fuck up
>>25141531"Many people have called themselves gods before. And all of them were proven mortal. We're gonna end you reign of terror now, bitch!"
Rolled 94>>25141531"no, I doubt you'd press that button if it were a nuclear bomb, it would kill you too. and you fear death, I can see it in you"
Rolled 75>>25141531"A bomb is a bad choice for close range combat."Full JC Denton.
Rolled 84>>25141531You're not the only god. I know seven others.<Hello Mr Nuclear Bomb. How are you feeling?>
Rolled 80>>25141531Do we have our Ion Cannon with us right now?Summon up enough strength to talk to the nuke, tell it that we're its friend and it shouldn't go off."You wouldn't do that. You want to live through this, and me, I'm willing to die to ensure that future generations of all species are free from your tyranny, you massive cunt."
>>25141531Not to day
Rolled 32>>25141531since the bomb is non manifest we can just talk it out of exploding
>>25141531"This seems like rather a desperate measure."
>>25141531Push back!"I have a different deal. Release all your mind controlled lackeys and make an effort to be a nice person and I might let you live.">Something that your technopathy told you wasn't manifested- it was handmade.So... we can just turn it off?
Talk to the bomb. Ask it not to blow up. Then shoot the bitch with the ion cannon.
Rolled 4>>25141531Hah, wow.What a joke.All we need to do is disrupt the shaped explosives so that the Uranium isn't compressed spherically, then it won't reach the critical mass needed.
Rolled 44Can we Awaken ourselves? Go full Anti-Pariah mode?
>>25141635she has TK as well... but its worth a shot if talking doesn't work.
>>25141531I don't get it. She's well aware that we're a technopath, so why the tits is there a handmade nuke here?Is this some kind of excessively elaborate trap? We can just ask the bomb nicely to stop.
"A threat you dare not use is no threat at all. If you press that button, we both die. Gods and mortals alike. This seems like a rather desperate measure."If we both die... The unknowable does too." It said, and the foot pressed a fraction. That is a true monster. An unmaker of reality and thought itself.""... Alex isn't a monster!" Ellie called.That screech came again, this time not focused on you, and she collapsed.With all of your strength, you reach out.<Hello, Mr. Nuclear Bomb. How are you feeling?><I'M FeElInG LiKe EXPLODIIING.> It responded, and cackled. You reached out to modify the nuke- and the screech came again, thundering into your mind."Even at the risk of my own life." The Void Queen said. "That monster is worth killing."
>>25141531"A God's throne, huh? Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi. Get off my throne, ox."
Rolled 40>>25141650why don't you just shut the fuck up
>>25141650Oh christ she's a fucking antispiral.
>>25141650that is not a monster his name is Alex
>>25141650"Funny, that's exactly how we all feel. Only it's you that's the monster."
>>25141646I don't think you get how precise the explosives are on a warhead. On a standard US W87, there's 72 explosives, all placed specifically to create a concussive blast that is *perfectly* spherical. When those explode, they compress the uranium into a ball only two inches in diameter. Inside the center of that sits tritium gas, which increases the nuclear reaction cycle rate. If any of that is disrupted, then you wont get the compression, and you won't get the critical mass needed for an explosive chain reaction.
>>25141650"The universe it still here, you have enslaved countless people. The only monster here is you."
>>25141650"And you can say that without even knowing him? All this, everything you've done, is to kill Alex?What are you?"
Rolled 38>>25141650hmm, welp, I got nothing. Attack her mind directly. Make her a drooling vegatable.
Rolled 32>>25141650"wow, you telling me about whats a monster and what isn't" laugh right in her face "tell me, whats your definition for monstrosity?"
Rolled 55>>25141650His name is Alex. His power is not at fault.And I can undo any damage he does.TK blast! knock her off the button.
>>25141683I don't think you get how little Exabyte knows about physics, much less nuclear physics.
>>25141650"But you're wrong. The only damage so far has been stopping the people who'd kill us."
>>25141699>>25141708Pls noDon't do this.
Rolled 28>>25141683If we can mess with it with TK, she can set it off with TK.
Rolled 69>>25141708>>25141650no TK blast; merely break the connection somewhere along it's path to the device
>>25141650"You call him a monster, yet look at what you've done. Enslaved races, massacred living, sentient beings.He that kills himself to avoid misery, fears it,And at the best shows but a bastard valor:This life's a fort committed to my trust,Which I must not yield up, till it be forced;Nor will I: he's not valiant that dares die,But he that boldly bears calamity."
Rolled 35>>25141683begin the murderizing.
>>25141719If we can break an eggshell with TK, she can make the egg whole again with TK!
>>25141725Could set it off.Best thing we could do would be to remove the warhead.
>>25141650"You know what they say about people who hunt monsters.I heard one of them, before. From under that tendril you have wrapped around their mind, I heard it. It was screaming for help.From where I'm standing, the only monster I can see is sitting on that throne."
Rolled 87>>25141747If we mess up the explosives then she can simply TK crush the thing until it goes off.
Oh wow.Yes, let's try and kick the thing that doesn't give a fuck about our powers and can detonate a nuke that's under our feet.Great plan fucktards.Let's talk.
>>25141767We're being watched like a hawk. We try anything, she detonates the nuke.
"And you can say that without knowing him? All this, everything you've done, is to kill him?""Yes." She responded.<His name is Alex.> Jilly said, a shaft of thought slamming through the sky. You felt something swarm around you again, insulating you from that noise."Funny." You say, and push yourself to your feet. The screech came, but with Jilly protecting you, it didn't hurt at all. "From where I'm standing, the only monster I can see is sitting on that throne."You raise your ion cannon, and pull the trigger. It slammed into her forehead, the ion beam tearing her head from her shoulders. Then her body fell forward, onto the button.>End of thread!
>>25141777Well, this is what the people wanted, isn't it? They wanted to come down here and talk to her when we could have just thrown her into the sun.
>>25141796That was anticlimactic.
Rolled 33>>25141796DAMNITExcellent thread as always, exabutt.
>>25141796Talk about a deadmans switch.She's going out with a bang.
>>25141822at most half die, because that's all that is in range of the nuke
Rolled 52>>25141796Oh. shit.
>>25141796I'm officially raising the level on the happening-o-meter.
>>25141796Three threads left.
>>25141796That cliffhangerExa I swear if there isn't a thread tommorow I am going to blow up a post office.
>>25141796>Ion cannon endYessssssssssssss, kill psionic god with science.
>>25141796Man, I'm getting some pretty hardcore TTGL vibes here.Void Queen = AntispiralPsionics = Spiral PowerI guess that makes Heather = Kamina.
>>25142026Alex is Simone.
>>25142026I've never finished TTGL
>>25141987>Three threads left.there's still all sorts of things left: Armtek and Omega, jabberwocky, the talk with anna, Delta's 36 inch recabulator, the heat crystal for newt, being a dick to hound as revenge.
>>25141988It's just a nuke. Nothing bad's going to happen. Yesterday's no thread was worse.
Rolled 80>>25142078>>25141987where is this number coming from?
>>25142050If the VQ is doing all this to protect the universe, then you've unintentionally copied TTGL.Hopefully this will end with galaxies being thrown around like shuriken.
>>25142110He probably just pulled it out of his ass.
>>25142112I'm not gonna lie, it... probably won't.
>>25142078There were plenty of small things to do at the end of Sorc Quest as well, and Exa wisely ended it when the antagonists were gone and the plot ground to a halt. Armatek is the only big thing remaining really.
>>25142125That sounds like a challenge.
>>25142125We just need to train TK more!
>>25142125That a fact?
>>25142112Jesus, whats the kill count of that show?
>>25142125Can we throw a planet into a sun at least
>>25142167They fired lasers at every single point in time and space.And then they create a mecha that is 53 billion light years tall. And then the mecha turns into a drill 10 times the size of that.
>>25142167>implying the galaxies were harmed by being used as throwing weaponsThat would involve the show making some sort of sense.
>>25142232Not making any sense was the entire point.
