Warforged, by name they are beings of eternal battle and made in the most magical of forges. They have long sense stopped being controlled by any for their wars as slaves. Though the most common of the beings were the humanoids. They were formed in many different ways from the shapes of other beasts of all types.But that time when they were common within the realms. At least a thousand years since they were seen on this plane in common place. Many had sought adventure or had fallen in some sort of disrepair and were destroyed in some way.But far from any that would find the spot of another Forge of Creation, thought all to be destroyed long ago, except for the ones who had built the place so very long ago with knowledge they had obtained in different ways. In the desert mountains with no name, the forge sat beneath where it had slowly eroded the old seals and locks on their mighty doors. And waking the first of many in this legendary cache of magical technology. The first sign of movement was one of the few Warforged created before the place was sealed. It moved slowly and activated itself slowly as the crystals started to fuel it once more.But what will you do first?A: Try to 'Remember' the instructions given by the creators.B: Explore the home where you have sat in 'deactivation' for so long. C: Try to take stock of exactly what you can do.D: Write in.

Rolled 78>>26599218But in all seriousness though a medical warforged would be pretty interesting main character.
>>26599218You remember not only what you can do but also your Name. IronMass you remember, named that because of he sheer amount of Iron it took to make most of this place and that you moved yourself to get things here ready for everything.You also remember the basics of training you had in medicine for the more 'Fleshy' creators had taught you along with the workings of the forge inside. Everything in the forge took a good bit of magic to power and that is why your eyes are in a sense made of magically collecting crytals.Lucky for you they had some sort of extra holding place or the ones inside of your head would have melted you long ago. Sadly you don't know where the rest of the stored magical crystals are at least at the moment.You remember your enhanced strength, your average magical skill and the masterwork forging of weapons you can do. Along with working the Creation Forges with enough practice as you haven't done so in so long.What do you do now?A: Attempt to remember your former instructions.B: Explore the home where you've been sat so long.C: Attempt to look outside, as you were sitting near the only access hole this side of the complex.D: Write in.
>>26599280Set out to be a wandering doctor, healing people as you go. The first thing to do is to use your forging skills to make your set of tools - masterworks scalpels and so on. Explore the Forge for a, well, forge.
>>26599280Look for your medical equipment, any armor and weapons you have lying around, and take stock of what you can remember about crafting and whether or not you can graft magical armor onto people as new limbs.

>>26599359Better than expected.>>26599358That joke has never been funny.
>>26599359You explore the innards of the complex on this end, seems like everything is still in near perfect condition. Lucky for you but with magic in the doors that isn't as big of a surprise. Your creators weren't that dimwitted to fail simple warding runes.Along with the creation forges you see in the center rooms, you find other smaller rooms with other large forges. Fueled by different runes of fire magics and some by deactivated portals to the plane of fire.Now, while the thing is active you go and start to remember everything you are able to create as you make the simple things needed for the Mediforged things. Simple fake limbs that seemed to be able to be used wasn't out of the question. Difficult yes, but not impossible. Along with that the magical essence you are able to infuse within them is...lacking. Perhaps a rune or illusion to make them look a little more real would all you would be ale to do.Focusing back from your memory and thoughts you see the Sword, the set of scalpels, a bone saw (always nice to have), and extra ioun stone head lamp that you rest on your head through a strap. Darkvision was nice, but full color from a light was even better.A: Explore the rest of the forge.B: Go on outside, see what is outside now after so long.C: Try to find other things within the complex, not looking for forging related equipment.D: Write in

>>26599614We could totally be known for giving people something they didn't want. It's like our signature move.
>>26599623Mechanical medicine with necromantic energies as its base, maybe?
>>26599530I...Triple. All the same digit.Huh...---------As you start to think you remember your prime directive as your creator liked to call it. Preservation of not only yourself and the Creation Forges within, which for all you know are not one of the kind like they are, but of the people around the forge area. The builders and your creators were grand sorcerers and wizards. But they told you of the many different races who had called the desert home and had them as strangers as 'Impartial' judges and seekers of knowledge.Being a Mediforged this worked well, if you had met any creatures that were not hostile. You would be able to help them as your Creators did in the past and this sent a 'Happiness' into your metal body.As you rummage through some things you find a few robes and other things in a magical chest. All cloths for the most part of one of the medical men. Slipping them on you look like the classical doctor image that any from the forge before you went into stasis.Along with it as you look around you picked up a staff and a scabbard. Putting your finely made short sword into the scabbard now attached to your hip and you look at the staff and watch the beings on it move slowly."Ah...finally weilded. And by another of medical training. Acceptable." It said in a single voice as the top was a Snake head with deep blue gemstones for eyes that glowed faintly. "Protections and Use, highly acceptable.'You've obtained:Former Medical Garb.Scabbard for your Sword.Magical Snake Staff (Medical Checks Plus 2)A: Explore more of the forges inside.B: Try to find other beings within the complex,C: Head on outside.D: Write in.

>>265996421: that staff can talk. Talk to that staff. Ask it about its former owner and how it can help us heal people.2: Explore the facility, inside and out, and look into trapping or sealing the entrance. We have to leave at some point so we need a way to keep murderhobos out.

>>26599702Can we name it Ssen?kidding.

Rolled 70>>26599813shit forgot dice
>>26599827"So...What is your name Snake Staff?" IronMass asks his newest Staff sitting on a stone under him that seemed to have long since lost it's meaningful carving."I am Ssen, I was crafted here to analyze and replicate the poisons of creatures for antidotes and to protect the wielders from different threats." It said in an almost robotic voice, it clearly isn't a Warforged but something more attuned to magic.You've learned more about Ssven.You've learned about it's Poison abilities. To both replicate, collect, and cure different types of poisons it has come into contact with.

There were a few scorpions that were skittering around along with other creepy crawlies. No rats or other mammals though. "My Directive...by that I assume Purpose. I am to keep the medical leader of this Complex safe and healthy until another can be found and most poisons can be cured easily." Ssen said as it scanned the room for any unknown Toxin. "No toxin in this room found, not any I cannot cure with a simple glow."Now what?A: Explore the Complex more.B: Go on outside.--------I'm gonna level with you right now /tg/I expect Warforged Warlord.Not a Mediforged.

Either way I look forward to our inevitable grafting of magical prosthesis on war torn orphans and what not.Also, ask the snake if he can imitate drugs. A sleeping chemical could COUNT as a poison right?Also, we should switch over to an Awl instead of a shortsword. It'd punch through armor easier and if we poisoned it with Ssen it'd be pretty deadly.

>>26600272As you open the once sealed door into the moonlight outside you blink looking out across the sandy dunes around the mountain. The door is near hidden by a magical spell that you have been taught exactly where the door is and other doors are that may be buried or gone.Looking out though, you do see somethings in the far distance and one thing up the mountainside. You know there were no tunnels into the complex from the top so it must be something else, the other things you saw across the desert seem to be smoke rising from behind one of the many dunes.A: Climb the Mountain.

Though this doesn't let you look at the dunes. (the 3)As you climb up you find a large cave, and it strangely full of different shiny objects. Finely made goblets here and there but mostly small metal coins that you seem to not know the true value of. Inside you do see something starting to move, it's rather small and blue and speaks in a tongue with an odd accent. Clearly it's not the blue things native tongue."What are you doing here? Who are you? What are you?" It says quickly and slinking around only a pair of yellow eyes and faint blue shape being able to be made out.A: Attempt to get closer.B: (Insert what you will want to say.)C: Simply leave with a bow.D: Write in.

>>26600487B) "I am IronMass, a healer. Who are you?"
>>26600548Dude, the dragon had no idea our little Warforged armory even existed under his hoard.
>>26600561So just kill it then?
>>26600549"I am IronMass, MediForged. Healer from The Forge below.""Below...No. This is My Mountain. The only stupid mountain in this Stupid Desert!

>>26600571You are the "war" part of our warforged nature, aren't you?
>>26600611A dragon clearly, a young one probably.This could prove problematic. If its evil and kleptomeniacal it may plunder the forge. Judging from its rant its pretty self absorbed.Point out that we were here first, by a couple centuries at least and that if the mountain belongs to anyone it would be whoever made us and put our facility underneath the mountain. Ask why this newcomer assumes he can just walk in and claim land as if its his own without taking into account its current anbd previous owners.
>>26600611B) "I have no desire to make you leave. I apologize for the misunderstanding, but I have slept beneath this place for centuries. Do you know what is burning beyond the dunes?"
>>26600658Almost exactly what I typed
>>26600655That's an awful idea right now. He's clearly just been in some form of conflict, dracoadrenaline still pumping in his brain, and we can't confront him about this concern until he's calmer and more impressionable.
>>26600677Mostly I want to see how he'd react to ownership rights. If he's willing to stay on his side of the mountain and leave our forge alone I'm happy with his presence.If he's a Kleptodrake then we hqave to get rid of him.Calming him down is fine but we need to get a feel on how he views the property of others.
Why is everyone so afraid to fight a small dragon?We are a walking ton of metal with a master-crafted sword.

"I didn't...think anything was actually here is why I came and took over these lands. It was all I really knew of where to go..." It walked out from the shadows and showed itself.While it was mostly blue, it was scarred to all hell. White marks littered it's scales and it's snout had many large scars on it while the horn on top of it's head was chipped all over."And the Burning I would guess would be one of the many tribes of the desert. They were brought here long ago by boats from what the tales go. Boats left them here and never came back, and now that they roam the desert Orcs, Goblins, Gnolls all harrass them.

>>26600778Prejudiced assumptions, bro. How do you know his "trove" (as he calls it, not a hoard) is not an inheritance passed down by his grandsire?
>>26600753Fair enough, no reason to kill it unless it has it coming.>>26600751Exactly, he'll totally make operating on people easier. Hell Antibiotics are just poison for microbes so those are a thing Ssen could do too!>>26600746Ask if the dragon is injured or in pain.

>>26600800Our Hippocrates subroutines throw exception of flag, "UNETHICAL" if we attempt to do harm.
>>26600810I think we should be programmed to use violence in self-defence, but that's about it.
>>26600808Agreed, its only sensible for a Wyrm to grant one of its hatchlings a seed horde on which to build. We can't just assume the Dragon is a loot happy monster until given sufficient proof. Its highly agitated, which would make any appraisal of its personality difficult.We need to calm it down and figure out if it can respect basic property rights. If it does it gets to stay, if it doesn't... we'll burn that bridge when we come to it.>roll uranalCaptcha we aren't playing FISTOForged. Get out.
>>26600844Yeah, we should offer proper treatment to assholes too.
>>26600848Agreed. We don't have to like or even appreciate the wyrmling, but if it can come to a reasonable agreement then we should let it stay.
>>26600847I said "Do No Harm" not "Roll over and die"I interpret it like one of Robocop's prime directives "Serve the Public Good" or something like that. Greater good...? The point is that we're programed to make the world a better place.
>>26600791>>26600800>>26600808"Injuries are Clear on your body. I am trained in medical magic and sciences. Allow me to look you over and lessen any pain." IronMass said and bowed a bit showing his medical gear and his staff. Lucky the pain killing poison of a plant was a simple one that Ssen had on it that could even effect a dragon."T-thank you?" It says and walks forward closer to IronMass with a clear limp. It truly is fairly injuried. Though it's scars and wounds are many, much of the wounds seem to be breaks and beatings from larger objects. "Where did you obtain the wounds that you currently are showing?" IronMass asked as he used simple magic to start to slowly mend some broken bones. A powerful spell and taking much of a normal human's magical stores. Luckily the Crystal was at more than full power and not drained much by the ordeal of healing the young Blue."The Giants, a clan that had stolen me and nearly had killed my kin. I only escaped when my father's other Dragonborn son killed on of the guards and allowed me to flee." He said as the pain numbing poison allowed him to relax mroe and more. "Giants are a near contant plague here, they think they can kill or loot anything around. Worse then anyone really...I'm glad none are able to come too close to this mountain because of the great rifts. "The small blue is now looking a good bit better, his wounds look much cleaner now with the magic and 'poison' used as Medicine. He seems to now be able to move with much more ease and without much pain.Now that you know of the Dragon, what do you do?A: Go back down the mountain.B: Talk to the Dragon.

>>26600958Well, if we're going to be neighbors then it's better to familiarize ourselves with him. Besides it's just good bedside manner.
>>26600985Ask the dragon if it gets enough exercise and has a healthy diet. Does it eat enough greens, those are in short supply in deserts? What about alcohol consumption, is it within tolerable limits?
>>26600958B) "I'll investigate a possible solution to the issue of the Giants. What is your name?"
>>26600958How old the dragon is? What size it is?
>>26600958Ask it about the giants, gnolls and other creatures. These are going to be the source of a lot of injuries so we should look into Murder Hobo-ing if only to cut down on cases of sudden unexpected amputation.

He said as you reach behind it's frills and rub behind them making it make some sort of odd sound. "And my name is Nethil.""Do you eat enough Nethil then? Food I understood was hard enough to come by from my creators." IronMass asked and looked at Nethil."Mostly Camels, sometimes a goblin if I'm bored. And sometimes I hunt down a large hawk for a bit of something different.">>26601021Don't know the age, and a good bit bigger than a horse.------A: Go back down the mountain.B: Talk to the Dragon.

>>26601646-ASSUMING- they're hostile thugs, having a doctor who will heal their wounded for free (they're sure to have wounded, being ruffians) will be far too valuable to attack us.
>>26601721Okay, so we get put into slavery. Kewl. Not a bad plot hook.>>26601714Go say hello
>>26601739Nah a group like that would have one brain at least. So they would be wary of enslaving someone then asking him to take a scalpel to his captors.
>>26601767Fuck these last two rolls. Why did I stop rolling?
>>26601702Nevertheless, what are they're going to do, stab us?
>>26601739You're pretty paranoid.
>>26601847Every quest has to have one. They generally only help if the OP is a shitty DM and throws something insidious at us that -can't- be feasibly handled. (Assuming the tone of the quest doesn't involve Souls-series tier death possibility.)
>>26601876Well, considering that the biggest threat we face is erosion I'd say being overtly cautious is unwarranted. We're sturdy, we can handle lots of things that a normal protagonist wouldn't.
>>26601876It's like Young Paul Atreides taking Thufir Hawat with him to Disneyland. "Would you just chill the fuck out and enjoy the teacups, old man?"
>>26601767You decided to walk over the dunes and toward the smoke pillar close by. As you get closer you hear the shouting and yelling of the beings within the camp. Climbing over the dune you see a large man near the fire throwing things inside it making it spew different colored sparks.Keeping watch you see them bring another fleshy toward the front and throwing them into the fire making the flames suddenly go straight up.A: Anger Sequence Activated.B: Investigate.C: Retreat.D: Write in.
>>26601920This is monstrous! How many are they? If their numbers are low enough we should intervene.
Rolled 11>>26601920Told you guys.Observe. It is not our directive to interfere with different cultures.When this scenario calms down, approach and find out more information.
>>26601963From what you see, about a dozen not counting the one thrown into the fire.
>>26601915I like you, anon.
>>26601920D) "Know you men what you toss so casually into the flames? Tell me, what do you see clutched in your ephemeral fingers of fragile meat?"As we speak, walk through them without regarding their existence, reach into the flames and take whatever ruined shards of our brothers are left in the embers.
>>26601920While we can take on a young dragon I doubt we could take on a camp of Giants let alone one who are sacraficing fleshbags to their godsLets go back to home base and tidy up no doubt the place is dusty as hell and a mess after our masters just up and left.
>>26601920Intervene, this cannot be right. Loudly declare your presence and ask what is going on here.
>>26601920How are these fleshies dressed? Do they look primitive or advanced?
>>26601990They thought they threw a human inside the flames.->>26601997Not giants, just about as tall as you, and your about 6'4
>>26602027You cannot tell, mostly furs and rags but some wear bits and pieces of old styled armor from at least before your time.
>>26602036Oh then lets go and fuck with them they cant just waste good meat like that
>>26602036Oh. I thought you were saying they were all throwing soul gems into the fire. They actually tossed another living man in?
Rolled 83>>26601920>A: Anger Sequence Activated.Lets get terminal with this "patients".
Rolled 11>>26602015We are a Mediforge, not a peacekeeper.I'm sure we've been programmed with higher than average warforge intelligence to accept that multiple cultures exist. A lot of things that should be considered when encountering a new one.
>>26602054From what you saw, he was not happy about bein' thrown into the flames.
>>26602048>>26602060Let's not use unnecessary violence, talking to them first would be a good idea. Maybe they're burning plague victims or something?
>>26602070Well, there's our programming and then there's our conscience. At least we should see what this is about, don't you agree?
>>26602094>>26602084Theyre savages in the desert, they will want a fight
>>26602084Walk briskly past them and reach into the flames. Put our sword in the brainstem of the burning man. Once he's out of his misery, turn to face the killers and say, "What was that man's name and why did you kill him?"
I like to think we are more of a Combat Medic, our main purpose was the preservation of ourselves and Creation Forges. Not being a literally doctor.
Rolled 61>>26602108Yeah, but I don't think shouting "What the hell is wrong with you?!" is a good way to meet somebody new.Only respond in self defence.
>>26602135We're a literally doctor though. Besides, what other purpose than to produce servants for mankind those Forges could have.
>>26602135Mayhap, but we were forged by man. The same sort of man who was just thrown into a fire. This is an affront to the kin of our masters, albeit by others of the sort. I'd think our arcane cogitator is on fire right now with the conflict of interest.
>>26602110That's a dangerous prejudice, we don't have enough information about the situation to make a judgement yet.
Rolled 76>>26602173I like this guy.
>>26602145>"What the hell is wrong with you?!"Nonsense, that's hell of a way to make a first impression!
>>26602173Precisely. That's why I say this: >>26602126
>>26602187So we are going up to them, ending the burning man's life and then asking why they had slayed the man?
>>26601920if we are going to kill them then wait till they sleep and drag one or two into the fire then watch what happens, otherwise lets get some backup.
>>26602267inb4 its a test of manhood or some retarded bullshit
>>26602267Yes, except try to drag the burning man out of fire, he might still be salvageable.>we can rebuild him>we have the technology
>>26602281Nah, let's not kill sentients in their sleep.
>>26602267That's my vote. Ask Ssen to cook up a non-fatal paralytic neurotoxin if he can so we can smear it on our blade after giving the burned man mercy. We may need to down all these fucks if they get uppity.
>>26602318I like this. Ending somebodies life should only be done when strictly necessary. Like euthanasia.
>>26602294No he's fully engulfed in a roaring bonfire and will have been in it for a good portion of a minute by the time we get there. The only mercy now is death. (Unless we know we have awesome magical healing abilities, Forger?)
>>26602294>>26602286Roll d100 To be the Autobot!
Rolled 31>>26602338Roll out.
Rolled 57>>26602338Switch on our ambulance siren, lights!
>>26602335Probably, but it doesn't hurt to look first.
>>26602335Dunno. Depends on your rolls and how good we are at being a walking Burn Ward
>>26602338Awww I thought we were going to kill him.
>>26602378We may have to. Bottom line, though; we're fixing this situation.
>>26602353"NOOOOOO!" IronMass shouts as he runs down the dune and rolls down a few and then keeps running and pushes away the large men who seem amazed by your metal being and pulling out the man of the flames.You look to the being and are...well slightly amazed the small man hasn't gotten a single burn but looks wounded by stab wounds that have been closed by the heat healing him at least in that respect."Why do you throw this one into the flames? Why do you sentance another to the death by the heat of creation?" IronMass asks the large one who is amazed to meet another his size."A Traitor and a murderer. He left others to die in the waste whilst they were fighting the Gnolls. We have lived long against this one but he fled like a coward leaving his brothers to die Metal One." The Tall one says in a clear tone."I ran because I was ordered..." Said the smaller one, he seemed only half your height and you look to the large one.What do?A: TalkB: FightC: Write in.
>>26602496"Was he the only survivor of the battle?If so he would have died trying to fight the enemy forces"
>>26602496A) "If you must execute a man, do not torture him. Is it true he retreated under command of your leader?"
>>26602496Tell them that you're taking the man to be your follower. His punishment will be to serve for the rest of his life.
>>26602623Yeah, its eventually going to come to this
>>26602623Ehh... I don't know if we can enslave a creator.Also, I just realized. Whether he retreated under order or not, it's highly unethical to execute a prisoner. It's just wasteful and stupid aside from evil.
>>26602574"Observation and information tells that the final survivor would have died if not retreating. And even though if he were ordered to do so, if execution is need. Do not torture, simply painless would be more adiquiet. I will take this one to my home. Do not worry, he will serve until I see fit." You then pick up the half sized burned man and walk up the dunes surprising the hell out of the giant creatures. The smaller one has now passed out once again as you take it back and put it into the medical room inside the forge.
>>26602671Well, fleeing a battle is a serious crime so he should be punished somehow, and making him work for the good of all is better punishment than death.
>>26602782And then we will be logging this for today and possibly continue this tomorrow if you'd all like. I'll set up a twitter tomorrow possibly and now I shall be back.
>>26602782apply salve or something to help with the burnsStart sanitizing the medical area.
>>26602782"I didn't ask for this" -time ahoy!
>>26602802Please do, this is shaping out to be an interesting quest! Also, the dragon is a cutie.
>>26602782put in all the implants
>>26602832http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26599118/There you are for the link. For tomorrow dear gents.Let's see how we do with this.
>>26602802Aight give us that link before you drop the thread. Good quest btw. I like the feel of it a lot so far.>>26602832I can see IronMass and Nethil being pseudo-immortal bros. We might possibly end up as a wandering knight whose skin is his armor and whose steed is a dragon. With our reluctant squire, Crispin. I'm sorry.
>>26602885I meant I will be doing a twitter and posting that link tomorrow because I have shit to do at the moment.
>>26602885I see IronMass becoming the personal therapist of Nethil, trying to get him change his evil chromatic dragon ways.
>>26603021Ha."Why do you think you hoard?"
