Month 49Last time in Mutant Hivemind our forces attacked the strange mutant. We lost half our forces while the other half got away expect for a hero by the name of Ravoanna a former bandit pilot who was absorbed into the Hivemind a long time ago. Who with her Forbidden Bandit solo held of the enemy and served as a living reaper amongst their forces she slaughtered so many. Eventually she was however overwhelmed but not before activating her backup plan. The resulting nuke lured new hordes of ghouls upon the now vulnerable base. After that however a meeting was done between our forces where we were given some dire warnings of which we still do not know the true meaning too...Meanwhile the hero Markus has completely left the Hivemind and took his mobile base with him. With that occurring, the death of many including a hero, and questions having been raised since the discussion loyalties came into question. Along with the wretched awareness that there was something wrong with the Hivemind...

Rolled 69>>27317238Crits take priority and I am thinking about requiring more then just one roll now due to multiple actions being possible. Just going off one rolls seems a bit meh...In any case votes/rolls for actions are required for each. Up to a maximum of 3 or a crit. I suggest not relying on the dice gods as they tend to be most ornery when I am involved. This may change later on depending on how things work out.
Rolled 42Last thread http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27284893/New players are always welcome. I am a sucker for dropping hints and tips so I always recommend trawling over the archives even if you were in the thread
>>27317374and heres your mapsi have no clue about "the secret" and i went over every thread 3 times. and i was here for everyone of them.we're fucked, unless we get a really smar/tg/entelman in here
>>27317238so we gather up every remaining hero and interrogate the fuck outta them, force them to open every single back corner of there mind for the hivemind to see, we really should have done this in the beginning. kind of a policy of "if you are going to lead us you must prove that you truly serve the hivemind" or some shit like that
>>27317691fixed that bitand which base did we destroy? the river one or one of the other two?and i suggest scavenging the remains of that fallen base, and doing it shouldnt be to hard because they just fed and we'll have our own ghouls mixed in with our scavenging teams
>>27317788fuck forgot map
Rolled 37>>27317691Cannot force most of them. Prophet of Fate single handily operates the Overmind, Richard cannot join the Hivemind thus is immune, and Clora'Zel commands a potent army combined with being quite Influential if so desired.>>27317788Base got wrecked not destroyed. They have already retaken it. It was one of the swamp bases.>>27317615Well there are such thing as side effects even for the best of things.
>>27317868well then we ask first. im sure the prophet will open up willingly. richard shouldn't really have a problem with talking because all he cares about is SCIENCE and we have argreed to let him leave if he ever gets bored. Clora'Zel will be the hard part, lets do her last so that she'll seem distrustworthy if she doesnt, not that im saying we defame her for not dooing it but we really really need her to do it. Warlord Duel fists would have no problem with opening up and we dont need alexis to open up (tho if she wants it will probably be a little helpful
>>27317940actually wait, we should probably ask alexis nicely to open up because she did do all that scouting around the swamp and went into the tunnels, she may not have been here long or been involved in any intricate plots but she certianly has seen quite a bit
>>27317940>>27317968and these should provide a bit of a morale boost to the common memor who just saw marcus leave
Rolled 57don't forget voting for actions. Besides interrogating the heroes.
Rolled 8>>27318014well seeing as im the only one here i vote using this interrogation plan>>27317940>>27317968did marcus take his factory with him? if so then we build another factory, if not then we build 1 forsaken bandit and 4 SSTsso did marcus take the GIGGA base, the one we got agianst the bandit horde?we scout the tunnels, trying to capture anything and everything we can, preferably alive but dead works to. if alexis says no to the interrogation then send her with them.send some scouts with an escort to every single facility in our swamp to check them out/see anything strange about them (tho i dont expect them to see much)
Rolled 19>>27318121ill roll for this again since im all alone here
Rolled 67>>27318127>>27318121im getting some serious deja vu here, i just hope i make better decisions this time than i did the last time i ran this alone
Rolled 22>>27318014do you want me to roll for each different action? i can do that3 rolls per action
Rolled 54>>27318121Cannot construct Forsaken Bandits or bombardiers due to no mini reactors. Otherwise it would cost 1 free action as well as another actions thanks to no Markus.Markus did indeed take the GIGGA base.
Rolled 81>>27318161i dont really see how that works, since apparently all of our people were in there, including heros and regs. or how everyone let him just say "get the fuck out" and now we're left in the middle of the swamp with no base at all
Rolled 65>>27318177so are you gonna need more rolls? like 3 rolls per action? or are you already writing?i like the three rolls per action deal, crits wont completely fuck us over so its less a dice game and more a strategy game (though with how we've been strategizeing lately you might wanna leave it)
Rolled 47>>27318121Interrogation wise.Prophet doesn't seem to know anything. As he spends his time making sure the Overmind works smoothly. The only thing we found in his memories that he didn't share was his wasteland journey. Which was mostly emptiness with the spice of terror. Richard says this entire swamp was once upon a time full of many research faclities and corrposponding military bases for protection. City nearby was used to draw materials including test subjects. He doesn't know why it got so completely flooded or overgrown however. But suspects it may have something to do with the projects undertaken there. As for what he thinks of the Overmind Richard points out that everything has a price to pay. Plus an equal and opposite reactions so he asks what is the TRUE price of the hivemind and the corresponding cost? Warlord duel Fists mind is...surprisingly empty for the most part. The only thing that really causes in action in there is the prospect of fighting or getting ready to fight. He is however amazingly clever when it comes to either of those pursuits it just that anything else...Alexis states that there were unusual creatures underground that moved with sereneness similar to the Memor as if they were scouting it out...other than that however she doesn't know anything. Swamp wise she suspects that are many mutant types here and the swamps ecosystem is entirely vicious not to mention happily mutative.
Rolled 28>>27318309go onequal and opposite, huh...
Rolled 94>>27318309Clora'Zel on the other hand...we discovered wouldn't allow us access until Alexis came to speak with her. After that it was revealed that she had secretly been in cahoots with the other broodmother for a very VERY long time. In fact if we hadn't released her when we did it would have only of been in a few years times when she would of been busted out of there. Richard was right about the suspected tunneling around. The other Broodmothers' forces were only a year or two away until Markus' Special GIGGA base rose up. Causing the tunnel to flood and collapse in places. So they had to reroute which bought us a few years otherwise they would have already of compromised the facility. The fleshbeasts that escaped the tunnel to help us fight off the bandits due to them wanting to protect Clora'Zel. The hivemind made the mistaken assumption that it was Clora'Zel forces. It wasn't. Now however now that the bandits are taken care of their making a come back for her. >>27318177No one was on the mobile base everyone was in facility.>>273181214 sst constructed user.Scouting wise tunnel scouts didn't find much more then usual...until Alexis came down anyway. She found some carefully hidden burrows/nests and even some tunnels. Which is where she found some far out scouts for an unknown force. Scouts didn't find much in the outer facilities. They were either abononded or heavily overgrown. Usually both. Hell some of them were outright flooded or even sunken.

Rolled 84>>27318443send the Warlord to meet with the ghoul herosend Alexis to take samples/captures from those nests for richard to research.so is Clora'Zel still on our side? was she planning to over throw us with the aid of the other broodmother?speak to her about what her plans were with the other broodmother, including asking to se if she will come to us (though that seems unlikely)research any samples that our scouts brought back from the Tunnels
Rolled 2>>27318516rollin agian
Rolled 61>>27318570that was closeand agian
Ah, you used a different image. I'll need to remember that.Also here's the updated close up map from last thread.I'm sure you guys are familiar with the usual Memor Rules and longterm possibilities.
>>27318423How's richard going with the spiderborg project?Also some other suggest upgrades:>Jumping. Because holy shit having a giant spider jump on you is bound to be terrifying to anyone>Sensors of all kinds, to increase our field of vision and detection ability>Mine laying capabilities. Sneak around laying explosives, maybe under enemy bases or vehicles. Perhaps they can carry the explosive Brood mother things
Rolled 96>>27318604to be honest this one is a bit more detailed, tho im stealing the remember ramona bit>>27318638i completely spaced on the spiders, and why would that be richard and not the broodmother? though with them being a suicideish class it will expose the hivemind to an animal intelligence.but we will need them to be connected to the hivemind to work properly
>>27318604>Remember RamonaWhose dicing onions? I didn't ask for this
>>27318686>and why would that be richard and not the broodmother?>Bioborg spiders>Self replicating via recycled flesh and scrap metal as the cyborgs do>Some brands equiped with tools to make repairs to vehicles on the field, thereby no longer necessitating the use of the factory to make repairs>Others recycle flesh into a biochemical web like material, to seal leaks, gum up enemy equipment, and obvious capture>Other mechanical brands for sensors, mine laying, ect>Being mechanical in nature, would be run by either Richard or the A.I.
Rolled 7>>27318739it wouldnt be hard to make most of those mutationsbut neither richard nor the A.I. are connected to the hivemindi say we ask Warlord Duel fists what he reccomends
Rolled 62That feel when 4chan ate by bigass post goddamn it.
Rolled 86>>27318784please tell me you type this stuff up in word
>>27318761Actually I believe a recent Broodmother mutation allows her to add non mutants to the hivemind. I think.http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/27204608/#27209549>the Joining- non mutant creature becomes mutated as well as part of brood.We might lose some opportunities if their entirely flesh with no machine component.
Rolled 52>>27318761I trust the A.I. more than Richard or the Broodmother.After the last episode, I'm having doubts with the Broodmother too. We have more fleshbeasts than bioborgs, and we must ensure some kind of saftey protocol. Checks and balances.
Rolled 51>>27318818i see no reason why richard cannot make a mutant into a bioborg. and with them haveing limited intelligence it should prevent ethical issues
Rolled 3>>27318832once this>>27318516 post is answered as far as questions goi stil say we ask warlord duel fists
>>27318843I don't see why not either. The only difference is which comes first, the machine or the mutant.But like >>27318832 says, we ought to give Richard a bit more garauntee he can help us control the Broodmother because right now things are stacked in her favor with 2000 fleshbeasts from last chapter. Not even our Robots can deal with that and win.Not that I'm expecting her to rebel against us anytime soon. Only the possibility.
Rolled 27>>27318516If we're lucky she might be able to capture a few wranglers. Then it's just a matter of serum injections and Broodmother subliminal messaging.
Rolled 89>>27318870i say mutant first cause it is said that borgs cant join the hivemaybe give richard a kill switch?
Rolled 54>>27318516Warlord Duel Fist went out to find the new ghoul hero. He sorta got lost…despite the swamp being homeground and everything. It might be a while.Alexis went hunting again acquired yet MORE samples for poor Richard. Who at this point really needs to know what to focus on considering all the discoveries that have been made but never bothered with.Clora’Zel is indeed still on your side. As for her planning to overthrow you she thought about it…twice. Aid wise was considered during the second time. Plans for other broodmother were to team up. At least they used to be anyway as for the other broodmother joining you not going to happen. She is far too old, powerful, and mature to even consider such a thing. Not to mention she olds quite the grudge against the Memor for stealing her offspring from her as she views it. Cause as it turns out Clora’Zel is her daughter. Researching of samples of tunnel samples has led to 3 discoveries.1 Monsters are down there.2 Old experiments lurk down there.3 Heavily advanced fleshbeasts are prodding around down there.>>27318638>>27318739At this rates its gonna take a long while with all the abilities you want them to have. Richard doesn't mind of course because of SCIENCE.>>27318843Mutant borgs requires research with 'samples' or advanced cybernetic facilities. The current way is EXTREMELY CRUDE AND INHUMANE.>>27318914You can try. I don't recommend it as he has a literal borg army. Not to mention could call upon the wrath of high tech bandits. But sure go ahead I dare you user.
>>27318879Definitly, we need to get our hands on some wranglers.Other than that if the Spiderborgs come into fruition I have a longterm plan for them.They web the forrest. Capture prey, choke the movement of monster and ghoul and invader alike. Wrap them in cocoons.The cocoons with their living prey are dragged back home. The cocoons are injected with serum, while the Broodmother sings them her song until they open to the mind and then we release them. Those that don't we use for resarch. Maybe we might even ensare giant monsters. The spiders could build nests inside them and multiply. Or have an ST drag it back to base for research or tribute to friendly ghoul mercs.Just a pipe dream for now
Rolled 27>>27318914Well with Broodmother borgs now can, can't they A.I.?>>27318939If push came to shove, would his borg army or the fleshbeasts prevail?
Rolled 49>>27318604Wrong base it was actually the deepest swamp base that got hit.
Rolled 33>>27318939so we have richard research the heavily advanced fleshbeastsi think we're going to have wait a bit on the spiderborgs. the whole "Secret" thing is a tippy top priority and researching what is under us has a ood chance of discovering things
Rolled 88>>27318970It would be a bloodbath but with our assistance along with what remains of my 540 bots we should prevail. Problem is they keep digging in and reproducing at quite the rate. >>>>A.

We'll get a lovely boost to our pop that way.>>27318973Ok then. That means the river outpost is still active.Wait those little are bases? I had no idea. I assume the rest are the strange bandits too. Are the two connected to the waste accurate or they don't belong?
Rolled 24>>27318985I'm sure richard can multitask. . Besides we still have to capture the heavy advanced fleshbeasts before we can research on them.

Rolled 59>>27319145>>27319101We're at the loss of an engineer. Richard is a scientist, but he specializes in cyborgs and bioweps.For a specific secondary research, what of a proposal of a natural substitute for Markus? Use the broodmother to generate a new class of mutant, a smart class. A brain mutant. Capable of advanced mathematics, storing and processing tons of info, making precise calculations and simulations in the mind.It won't be as good as Marcus persay, but he was once a Memor too, but we can't let our technology stagnate.

Rolled 55>>27319610Unlikely they actually like you guys. Its just that their preparing for...something.
>>27319641Hmm, after we find Warlord and the Ghoul heroes we should send another envoy next turn then. See if we can't make good of a good opportunity or business proposal.The odd Bandits might've rejected our aid, but surely these ghouls will be more listening.
Rolled 61>>27319641well thats why we are sending out the scouts to find warlord duel fists and the ghoul leaderspreferably they would lead the warlord to the ghoul leaders.and the entire concept of getting lost shouldnt happen in a hivemind, he would be able to access the memories of the scouts that have scouted the area he is in, worst case scenario the hivemind guides him in
>>27319690Remember.>6. Certain hero units have the strength and willpower to hide their thoughts from the hive-mind, even massive plots and secrets. This can lead to mistakes and unseen actions and conspiracies by the heroes, but the rest of the Memor masses do not and should not be feared of treason or action without hive-mind consent or supervision.He cut himself off, he has the privelege to do so. he got lost or wants to be lost.
Rolled 11>>27319397Alexis has taken to the tunnels once more. Except now they know what to expect now. Apparently they aren't stupid. Our forces got routinely ambushed eventually we were driven out. Richard made a major breakthrough. Got the metal bits figured finally combined with the bio base. Only problem now is figuring out the actual abilities...Broodmother has tried to make preparations for brain mutant...but there is just one problem she has NOTHING to base it off of. Basically this might take a while...a long while. >>27319690Not thinking something suspicious might of happened or it got blocked out...must think of these scenarios user.

>>27319786We had an 88 on that. That's a pretty good roll. OP is giving us hints.
>>27319800Which it was. When you cancelled out the crit, you cancel out the move. Likewise if you uncanceld the move you uncancel the crit.
Rolled 33>>27319814like i said, i dont know what rolls he's taking. he mentioned something about wanting to roll for each action seperately at the beginning of the thread
Rolled 75>>27319723Somehow recruiting is advise by all our heroes. User. Apparently their rather concerned with our few number and many much more numerous foes.
>>27319837I'd like to know too. Richard did make a breakthrough, but neither did Broodmother though.We might have been lucky not to lose anyone this time around. And they're getting smarter
Rolled 64>>27319836that is really stupid, if it has the most votes you should consider it as just a repost
Rolled 39>>27319856Which is the purpose of finding the Ghoul leaders and Warlord, while making envoys to the ghoul camps, as it's clear the tunnel plan isn't working. and bandits are uninterested. On the otherhand, the ghouls seem to think fond of us.As such I'll go with >>27319795
Rolled 92>>27319837First to three votes/rolls locks an action. Of the rolls I take whatever is highest unless people vote for more then one action at once. In which case I have to do some moving around usually. As for the scouting for the Warlord fine. but your scouts didn't find him he is seemingly no where to be found.

Rolled 14>>27319935Scouts sent to check out the ghoul movement got wiped out the man...we also have a feral ghoul horde headed our way.Meanwhile the labs had to be quartined as the precedures down to allow the experimental creatures to reproduce worked a wee bit too well. Last we heard Richard screaming about 'containment protocol this' and 'worked too well that'. At the moment a system purge is underway. Our labs and facility are also a bit damaged thanks to this. But luckily everything was built to contain this sort of thing. As for Alexis...she disappeared user. One moment she was in the Hivemind then she wasn't. When our forces went to her last known location they only found a bloodbath with her remains no where to be found.

Rolled 51You are Alexis your team and you were trying to figure out where the hell Duel Fist disappeared to when the ground from around your forces erupted. At first you thought it was ghouls until the now familiar gleam of advanced fleshbeast digger claws were evident. Most of your forces were sliced to ribbons before they could react. The rest soon followed. For some reason you couldn't connect to the Overmind. Which was bad as they soon turned out who. You managed to blow the brains out of two of them but eventually you were overwhelmed. One second you thought you were gonna die until you find yourself awoken by the clicking and clattering of claw upon rock and metal. That was when you realized you were wrapped up in a caccoon and you were somewhere down in the tunnels. You that was when you felt the stuff ripped from your mouth. Before you stood a strange creature. Which stated "so where is our dearest sister brood-kin?"You are Richard. These spider things are beginning to remind you why you hated things that could reproduce themselves with just materials. As if anything goes wrong you might be able to look forward to a grey goo scenerio. Which was exactly what was happening right now except it was with spiders. They were wrecking equipment and every-time they took down a defense this or that they reproduced even MORE. Luckily however since your intern days you had long figured out what to do about this sorta thing. As you pressed the blinking yellow button. Above which was the label(extermination). Good thing you figured suggested that one when the facilities were constructed.
Rolled 37>>2732019198 on this, and I say that counts as a vote And I second it

Rolled 95>>27320509You are Torg. You fucking LOVE explosions. Right now you are commanding the siege weaponry thanks to that idiot Olaf sucking at his job. After all why did he have to fail at making the EXPLOSIONS happen? So you took command and now every single shell was hitting the ghoul horde perfectly. Best part is thanks to the Tectus you got front row seats at MULTIPLE angles how AWESOME is THAT.Hero unlocked Torg the Current (Siege) Master of EXPLOSIONS. Our artillery quickly adjusted to match their speed. Combine with tectus harassment kept from off their game. Which really came into play when our forces deployed...who thanks to Torg's disturbing talent with has what her refers to EXPLOSIONS. They didn't have to do anything more then mop up...Meanwhile the spider problem was figured along with making it able to reproduce. Only thing that needs to be worked on now is the actual types of them and resulting abilities. The actual base itself sis now completed.ProductionTorg didn't considered our ammo EXPLOSIVE enough so he figured out a all new types of guns that shoot BULLETS that EXPLODE. Not to mention he created an artillery piece that he refers to as SWORDS AND DINOSAURS ARE AWESOME. What actually turned out to be Giggles who he though wasn't EXPLOSIVE enough so he made him so. Then he ran away...instead of getting depressed Torg went out and literally wrestled down a shark dinosaur monstrous hybrid thing...in the deep swamp. He then strapped freaking LASERS to its HEAD. While armoring it up strapping all manner of EXPLOSIVE weapons and armor to it. He calls it Dino Fluff.

Rolled 91>>27320748I was wondering when Torg was gonna be a hero then that 100 happened.In any case.NEWSGuess whose back? ITS GlowyJOE. As it turns out Warlord Duel Fist was REALLY fucking lost. As in somehow found himself in the Northern City lost. Apparently using the strange tunnels as a short cut was a bad idea. While there however he and GlowyJoe went on many an adventure together...if you can consider taking on hordes of zombies, Justice Warriors, and white knights not to mention an army of bandits an adventure. Warlord Duel Fist also did in fact encounter the new Ghoul Hero Mr. BRAIINS. A Big Brained Ghoul who had organized the ghouls.>>27320886You can make SSTs just not Behemoth due to no min reactors. you also don't get bonuses to reproduction or weapons development any more.
Rolled 96>>27320747can we get a list of forces to go along with the pop list?current pop total: 3190
Rolled 39>>27320914now we get GlowyJoe into the Hivemind fucking Stat
Rolled 80>>27320914Okay, it seems like the tunnels are deep enough to block out even the hivemind. That's not good.As for Mr. BRAINS That's wonderful! We'll have much easier time with diplomacy with the sentient ghouls. Hopefully once the spiders come through we can begin cocooning and assimilating Feral Ghouls too
Rolled 83>>27320952im pretty sure they got into some epic fight or something
Rolled 22>>27320952>adding feral ghouls into the hivemindAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH no

>>27321015Well then after this >>27320819 turn, we'll start research right away.
Rolled 34>>27321015i meant vechs too but thanksand when did we have regular bandit? and why arent we converting them nowi say we convert all regular bandits, right. fucking. nowit'll bring us close to getting another action
Rolled 77>>27321005>>27321033Besides if they don't join even after all that, we just feed em to the spiders or broodmother or use em for research.And there is Mr. Brains.
Rolled 30>>27321033adding madness. into a hivemind.yeahno, we are not gonna doom the entire Hivemind.
Rolled 27>>27321056The bandits are part of the mind. Remember Ramona? They handle the Bandit SST's and ST's and stuff.We do have the serum though, and we can convert them into something else we already have.
Rolled 60>>27321033Ghouls are fucking INSANE especially the ferals unless you want to hivemind to go insane with hunger go right ahead.>>27321056Do not recommend they are distrustful of our forces. If we tried they would turn hostile. Vehicle wise1 bombardier5 SSTs each type expect Bandit or Plasma Baby which is 7 each. Everything else is unchanged.
Rolled 12>>27321069we can add sane ghouls into the hivemind because they are sane. if we add something that is insane into a hivemind what do you think will happen. especialy if we add hundreds or thousands of themand lets go convert them bandits now
Rolled 41>>27321078The prophet brings order out of the masses and into the hivemind. You can't join the hivemid with animosity or insanity, which denies consent.And again, we've converted ghouls before.Besides, we can always mutate the madness out of them with research
Rolled 6>>27321095well lets give them the option for now, im sure a few would like the idea of eternal brotherhood, especialy since bandits are notoriously cutthroat
Rolled 10>>27321096Confirm forceful conversion? So far there are 3 votes.
Rolled 17>>27321095Wait, so the 250 aren't part of the mind?Eh, fine then. We'll just use them as resource for now.We'll see if we can't figure out a mutation later.
Rolled 68>>27321109it is allmost impossible to cure an insane personnot only that but the mind of a ghoul is rotted>>27321121nonononono, i was never saying forceful when i proposed that
Rolled 40>>27321121Not "forceful" more like, we put them in a room, inject them with serum while the broodmother does her thing until they open up.You can't join without consent, but yeah it is forceful in that we're not gonna give them another option. So like that.
Rolled 6>>27321125the 250 are part of the mind because they are sane. most ghouls are not sane>>27321142that is forcefull, we are not doing that
Rolled 78>>27321133Do not doubt what miracles our mutations have done before.Besides, once we find and assimilate a sane wrangler even if we can't make them join the mind, the wrangler will and we'll have control of a good number of em.
Rolled 22>>27321142there are 1000 bandits, there is no way we are going to do that we do this>>27321117then over time more and more will come. but we will not start a war among our own forces
Rolled 61>>27321149It's not forceful. There will be food and drink (filled with serum) chairs and pleasant music.Stuff like "now sit back, relax, and listen to the words of the broodmother"They should give after a time.
Rolled 69>>27321174>there are 1000 bandits, there is no way we are going to do that Not all at the same time, no. Let's start with 100. Then when we win those over, they can help convince their peers to join and more and more they win themselves over to the mind.
Rolled 61>>27321166yes that is a good idea, but insanity in a hivemind is always >>27321185that is still forcefull, do you really think a bunch of cutthroat badass BANDITS are going to just sit back and allow themsleves to be herded into a room in the creepy mutant facility and listen to the speechs of a mutant nestmonster
Rolled 71>>27321217Well yeah, they live in the mutant facility and they see us on a day to day basis. Plus they don't even have to see her, her aura has a wide effect.You'll never know what works until you try.
Rolled 76>>27321205but if we force the 100 then the rest will know whats going on which is why we do this>>27321117they will help convert there ex-comrades
Rolled 64>>27321229EDE even said that it is a fucking terrible idea>Do not recommend they are distrustful of our forces. If we tried they would turn hostile. his words
>>27319604>>27319404No no, I figured it all out. You're just damned lucky my phone is shit and I'm at work so I can't tell them.
Rolled 9>>27321230Well that's almost the same thing. But I guess, I don't see why hearts and mind tactics like >>27321185 can't be tested at the same time.We'll give them the option to leave I guess.
Rolled 75>>27321217Meant to say always a terrible idea
Rolled 26>>27321242Under what context though? I'd imagine he was thinking of the force conversion.
Rolled 93>>27321253post it. NOW>>27321254when EDE says something is a bad idea, lets listen to him. he has said that he gives hints and reccomendations, it does nothing if we ignore those hints and reccomendations
Rolled 4>>27321242If we tried to FORCIBLY convert them.Remember. And failed, they would turn hostile.>Once joined of volition, loyalty is, in practice, assured. His words too.
Rolled 41>>27321272that is a forced conversion, do you really think bandits are going to allow that to happen. and even then we will not have their consent so it will be much more difficult. forceing them would be incredbily hardEDE how much would >>27321185 fail?
Rolled 75>>27321276Yes. He said FORCING them to convert is a bad idea.He said nothing about CONVINCING them to join.also >>27321290 if they do join they cannot turn hostile
Rolled 35>>27321253In that case you better spill otherwise this civ may very well end in another thread or two.
Rolled 80>>27321290of violation. that means that we must have their consent. do you not know what that means?
Rolled 45>>27321308i very much agree with you in this EDEi would also like this >>27321301 anwsered
Rolled 35>>27321316It means that we earn their consent. This will be done through broodmother encouraging and application of serum which opens them up to suggestion.Those who are still resistant we let go and try to convince them at a later date with the ones we have been sucessful with.
Rolled 59>>27321307>>27321290also, if your going to come up with a plan to convince someone to join the alien hivemind of the NIGHTMARE INCARNATE at least make it a good planlike the psionic dream conversion one, that one was good
Rolled 76>>27321355They LIVE and WORK ALONGSIDE the NIGTHMARE INCARNATE. They're basically a part of us.Dream conversions, we could attempt that to. Perhaps ahead of time in addition to serum and subliminal broodmother messaging.
Rolled 81>>27321340do you reallly think that they are just sit there while we stick them with needles of a completly uknown and probably hostile fliuds to tehmand do you really think that the bandits would just forgive us for trying to forcefull convert them? that tehy would just forgive you for turning the others? no they woudlnt
Rolled 68>>27321389>NeedlesNo. Food and drink.And no it's not forcefull at all. If they have the will to join then they leave. All the serum and sumblinal messages does is open them up to conversion. And who says they're going to find out anyway? Certainly the converted ones aren't going to spill the beans.
>>27321276If you can survive until 10:30 central time then i should be able to spill it.
Rolled 72>>27321378he already said they are extremely distrustfull of us. would you allow the goverment to pull you into their deepest facilitys and start sticking you with needles full of foriegn fluids that could do unknown things to you? no you wouldntnow multply that NO by 1000 because we are FUCKING MUTANT NIGHTMARE INCARNATE
Rolled 32>>27321438...so why do you think their working with you in the first place?
Rolled 27>>27321423what time is it for you right now? dont know US time conversions>>27321419i really cannot express how stupid of an idea this is. you are planning to turn our 1000 trained bandit allies agianst us when w can slowly turn them over time at no risk at all
Rolled 84>>27321438>NeedlesTHERE ARE NO FUCKING NEEDLES. THERE ARE NO PULLINGS AND ABDUCTIONS.We're not pulling them into the deepest depths. We are inviting them, a small number of them, into a comfortable setting. Offering plates of food and drink, while they sit and relax to music all the while wondering "what is this strange voice that makes me want to open up to it and calms me"
>>27321423Like I've literally been typing these one handed while driving on busy city streets.
Rolled 74>>27321467because they are openminded bandits who seek protection in a larger force.i really dont need you messing wiht things right now EDE. you know as well as i do that this will not turn out good
Rolled 66>>27321468>w can slowly turn them over time at no risk at allWHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK I"M TRYING TO DO. It's an entirely risk free method. Food. Drink. Sit down. Chill. Those who join, come along. Those who don't go back to the camps. If anyone ask questions ask your friends, they'll tell you.
Rolled 2>>27321496>OpenmindedKey word. Open minded. That's entirely what I'm trying to get them to do. Give them every reason to be open minded. literally.
Rolled 35>>27321488i rolled a 100 while driving, its no big deal>>27321484i seriously doubt that the incredibly complicated serum that degrades in the matter of hours will function properly if served in a coke, and that they wouldnt at least taste it, and they haev to be mutated befroe joining the hivemind
Rolled 77>>27321521they may be openmided but they arent stupid>>27321503then why not just convert the ones who want to join the normal way? which is what i proposed
Rolled 83>>27321522>i seriously doubt that the incredibly complicated serum that degrades in the matter of hours will function properly if served in a coke, and that they wouldnt at least taste it, and they haev to be mutated befroe joining the hivemindDepends. Is that true EDE.We reall need to give a firm answer these type of questions early on to clear things up before they begin.
Rolled 94>>27321544Intelligence has nothing to do with it.>then why not just convert the ones who want to join the normal way? which is what i proposedBecause we should test these sort of things to esnure if or if they do not work.How many times has the OP given us the chance to test different items and ideas and we just left them by the wayside?
Rolled 2>>27321503we dont need to coerce the ones who have agreed because they have agreed, sure refreshments are a given cause they are wiulling to join us but still. and no need to hide it, they probably expect some sort of injection seeing how it is undoubtedly an incredibly complicated process
Rolled 65>>27321554Richard took care of that problem. Serum is quite long lasting especially while its still in its containment unit. Outside your looking at oh about 2.5 months it still good. Otherwise as long as the containment remains untouched it wont ever go bad.
Rolled 86>>27321580But we need to see if we can get more people to agree to the process via sumbliminal messaging. Test what the Broodmother can and can't do to encourage them. Verbal agreements can only go so much. The more effective we can convert the masses, the better we will be at it and boosting our population.
Rolled 24>>27321578we test the idea he gives us, not crackpot idea that could effectively destroy our civilization. we know that they work becasue we have converted bandits before you do not test things by risking a lot. you test things but captureing a few enemies
Rolled 6>>27321597Okay, can the taste of the serum be masked?Better yet cut to the question and end the argument, will subliminal messaging be a cost effective way to convince more people to open up to the mind than simply asking "who want's to join say I"?
Rolled 36>>27321601once they have verbaly agreed why waste any time in converting them? we wouldnt be able to know if it worked or not becasue they are going to get converted anyway
Rolled 17>>27321610just anwser us this EDE, answer us this. include the risk of them saying "fuck this" and attacking us into your decision
Rolled 16>>27321602Which is why we will attempt it on a few bandits, not all of them in one go. There are far FAR greater risks we have taken before than a few dozen confused bandits.Op even says "you could have had a field day making up crazy shit and then promptly making it."
Rolled 6>>27321628>a few dozenthere are 1000 of the in our baseand you do not expermient on your allies, that will make the others even LESS likely to join
Rolled 69>>27321610Broodmother can only influence. The taste can indeed be masked. In fact it bitter but as it is exposed to air it sweetens.
Rolled 36>>27321615It's the ones who don't verbally agree. That's wasted opportunity. Could we have convinced them to agree? give them better reasons?Hell think beyond subliminal messaging. We have room for 25000 people with a fraction to live in.We can offer them a free house and extra citizens benefits if they join.
Rolled 92>>27321652oh you vague motherfucker
Rolled 40>>27321652So we can "snackify the serum"And in conjunction of the serum with influence of the broodmother, is this a good idea or a bad idea yes or no?
Rolled 65>>27321655they are already living in that 25000 space, with free food, protection and the worksand i seriously doubt that most bandits are very weak of mind. these are the motherfuckers who kill, rape, pillage, and generaly fuck shit up, and they're human ie: much much weaker physicaly than us and they have no hivemind and look how much better most bandits do than we are doing
Rolled 39>>27321708Having a strong mind would matter if we were trying to convince them to do something they don't want to do. We do not do forced conversions.What we are attempting to do is get them to want to open up. Even if they don't know why or how.
Rolled 78>>27321665Let me put it this way she can't make someone change their mind if they have already made it. If there is still something to work with she can sorta 'push' them in a certain direction. there are limits however despite how good she may be at it.>>27321671Cannot say.>>27321708Regular bandits are like that. These are ELITE/bad ass bandits for obvious reasons.
Rolled 99>>27321743That you CAN do if they haven't already made up their mind.
This is the guy who figured out OPs plan, forced conversion into anything psychic is a VERY VERY OH GOD NOOOOOO bad idea.
Rolled 83>>27321775Oh shit I only hinted about a few times. Fuck, how much DID you figure out?
Rolled 13>>27321768>>27321745And there you have it.We can attempt to push them in a certain direction before they have made up their mind. That's where the important part lies.Let's do an experiment. Two groups of 50.One group, the control group, we attempt to ask them to convert the normalThe other group we have them sit, eat some tasy serum snacks, while the broodmother in the floor under them attempts to give them that gentle push without them knowing.Let us see how effective this thing can be.
Rolled 15>>27321775yes, i agree with the smart guy who figured out the plan.not only that but lets not risk it or convert people without telling themfirst. i woud be pretty pissed if someone tried to conevrt to into something without telling me or even asking me if i wanted to do it
Rolled 100>>27321809I only hinted at that a few times and only once or twice...
Rolled 29>>27321823>>27321809>>27321775this conversation solves all debate
Rolled 34>>27321822Are you pissed at billboards then?
Rolled 89>>27321823>>27321823oh fuck me. I was wondering when that 100 was gonna show up.ALERT ALERT NUCLEAR LAUNCH DETECTED.Users I have detected a series of nuclear explosions at the zombie hives. The ghouls are mobilizing in force as it turns out this was what they may have very well been waiting for.
Rolled 75>>27321823and a 100still proving that op has more crits than we do
Rolled 76>>27321840That forced conversion is bad.Says nothing about subliminal messaging which is not the same.>>27321823Nice 100 by the way.
Rolled 55>>27321857Oh goodie. Wish we had eyes there to tell us what happened.Maybe the other Ghould Heroes will come with good news (why didn't we give those guys radios before they left).
Rolled 6>>27321857awesome>>27321845no, but i would be pissed if someon brought me into a room and started preaching muslim prayers and trying to get me to convert, not only that but also drugging me whilst trying>>27321865lets not risk it, and our entire hivemind
Rolled 12>>27321897The difference is you found out about the subliminal prayers which you can't hear, and the drugs which you can't taste. Likewise the bandits will be none the wiser after they leave.>>27321897The hivemind is never at risk from conversion. Anyone who converts is loyal, except the heroes.
Rolled 42>>27321818Can we please just try this guys plan and let it fail or suceed and end this once and for all?
Rolled 83>>27321897lets just put out an offer to the bandits that we would convert any of them and encorporate them into the hivemind, im sure a few will accept. these guys are the best, they are smart, trying to dupe them is an incredibly stupid plan when the ones who say yes will tell the other that it is great
Rolled 73>>27321915im dure they will notice the voices in the back of their head and the friends who were a 'maybe' before are now jumping in wholeheartedlyhe just said that it is an OH GOD NONONO WE DO NOT FORCE CONVERSIONS bad idea
Rolled 13>>27321938There's a difference between duping someone and subliminal messaging.Would you say TV commercials or Movie commercials are trying to dupe you? Or are an incredibly stupid form of advertisement?
Rolled 65>>27321954those commercials dont go right into my brain and automaticaly convert me unless im opposed to the ides, and they arent trying to put me into aq fucking NIGHTMARE INCARNATE MUTANT HIVEMIND. not only that but these guys are probably a part of EDEs plan
Rolled 78>>27321952Broodmother gives them a "push". Does that mean voices or something else entirely? That is up to the EDE. And whatever it is, we haven't had any rejections or objections from it so far. And we won't know until we try.And their friends who joined will wise up to the plan and participate. They won't go shouting praises to Memor, they'll say "eh, why not. Sounds like a good idea">O NOT FORCE CONVERSIONSKeyword Forced. This is not forced. This is suggestion.
Rolled 54>>27321979>those commercials dont go right into my brain and automaticaly convert me unless im opposed to the idesSo I see you don't get subliminal messaging then. Because that's exactly what they do. They attempt to convert you within your subconscious.>nd they arent trying to put me into aq fucking NIGHTMARE INCARNATE MUTANT HIVEMINDWhat part of "we work along side these guys, they're not as scary fighting with them as fighting them. They give us food and stuff".They are elite bandits before they joined, they will be
Rolled 12>>27321982this is extreme suggestion, otherwise known as WEAK MIND CONTROL. im pretty sure mind control falls under the "forced" catageory
Rolled 78So what is consensus action wise?
Rolled 29>>27322000Will still be elite be after we join
Rolled 83>>27322000yeah, elite which means that they are happy as they are and have almost no reason to want to join us>>27322015just put the offer out there that any who want to join will be encorporated into the hivemind
Rolled 53>>27322015Bandits are dead so>MilitaryAttempt to find alexis>Basic 1Finish up those spiders>Basic 2Scavenger for resources we have 0>ProductionNothing, we're out of resoures
Rolled 77>>27322019why would they want to risk such a massive fucking unknown like that when they are fine as they are
Rolled 42>>27322024Do not have enough resources for research.
Rolled 75>>27322024>>27322019these except add ghoul leader to the military one
Rolled 76>>27322019If they have no reason to want to join us, what's the point of asking?Honestly, what is supposed to be a harmless experiment on a group of 50 is made into such a big fucking deal. If you're worried about it, then lets just wire the room to blow up and call it a "terrible accident". Nobody but the mind will know about it.>>27322024I vote this action for now. We'll do some conversion later after more important matters.
Rolled 14>>27322016>>27322019To be exactThe Glows Crew Raiders are elitethe other group is a bad asses.
Rolled 74>>27322035EDE you're really ignoreing a sensitive issue. I actually like where this debate is going between the guys. . .a while ago, but can we just have a definitive answer?
Rolled 20>>27322035i say we break down all but 4 of those 44 swamp walkers>>27322057feels like they would be the otherway around>>27322024>>27322019these
Rolled 84>>27322084Let's just put that little experiment as Basic 1 then if we don't have resources to much else.I want to see this guys experiment crash and burn and shut him up once and for all. And if it does work, god knows why, then whoop de doo.
Rolled 42>>27322052almost no reason, but considering that some of them are the Glow Krewz we may get a few more since they are insane (figuratively) there will always be some
Rolled 61>>27322085Yeah we haven't used those things since the swamp clearing mission so long ago. they're just collecting dust right now.
>>27322104>>27322084Honestly I just wish they'd be more civil about it cause they do have some good points to both sides.The idea of "fake explosion to hide terrible mistake" might be a good failsafe. Not like we haven't had much worse accidents before.
Rolled 79>>27322085GlowyJoe company that followed him were the best of the best of the crew. The other group was handpicked by the warlord among the rabble who wanted to come along.
>>27322024Alexis and Dualfist are gone. Forever. There's no hope for them now and our base is going to be wiped off the Earthat any moment. I don't know why we aren't dead already.
Rolled 41>>27322127I thought we usually send like a floitilla of them to support whenever we send out the bigger ones for missions
Rolled 71>>27322084You have enough for experiment on the bandits but not enough for research.
Rolled 39>>27322131i just kinda figured that anyone who follows GlowyJoe is probably bordering on insane, especialy since they almost worship glowing shit
Rolled 90>>27322147Well then let's do that then and end this argument that's gone on too long. With the exploding failsafe. Not like we can research anything else.
Rolled 61>>27322147then break down 40 of those swamp walkers and use that>>27322133we have only been through like 4 months this thread
>>27322162Technically that wouldn't even need to be an action would it?Preparing some cakes and chairs isn't like building tanks or making military moves or researching weapons.
Rolled 95>>27322159....anon they would literally worship shit if it glows. You are seriously underestimating just how batshit insane the Glows Crew Members tend to be ESPECIALLY Elite members and other higher ups. >>27322162Use the serum with the non control group? If so what type of serum Mutagen or Mutant?
Rolled 66>>27322187but the conversion it self takes timei like this idea>>27322175we have extra res just stiiing around
>>27322199Mutagen of course. The one that "opens them up to suggestion" like was propose in it's creation.Be sure to have a plan to keep things hush hush. And how the converted bandits should act normally around the non converts.
Rolled 28>>27322199exactly why i thuoght they would be 'badass' instead of 'elite' either way they are fucking awesomeour mutants are probably gonna pick of some of that love of glowy shit from them huh?
>>27322206True, but that's not the experiment. The experiment is persuasion. They can be part of the mind and still be human and we'll mutate them later.
Rolled 13>>27322229you have to be a mutant to join the hiveind or else the connectioin will wear off
Rolled 40>>27322229We do not have suggestive serum. That is the broodmothers ability. We do however have serum for another other mutagen available to us. Including hivemind.
Rolled 16>>27322250im gonna just let it happen. but when you guys allienate all our bandits AND glowyjoe because YOU DONT EXPERIMENT ON YOUR ALLIES, im gonna say i told you so
Rolled 91>>27322264this see this>>27322261he said that the connection is extremely tenious unless they are a mutant first
>>27322264Well then forget that, don't want them going back non converted and growing scales. Just try the Broodmothers subliminal push then. No serums. This is her test.>>27322276It's not like we haven't had I told you so moments before.Lest we forget the rushed harrasment.
Rolled 38>>27322291Incorrect Hivemind mutagen allows access no matter previous psionic ability. With psionic ability you don't have to be a mutant to join.
>>27322291It's not even about mutation or connection. This is simply going to test if we can use the Broodmother to get more to say "Yes" than without her.
Rolled 37>>27322307alright, but im smelling doom in our future
>>27322296>>27322307I have it. Those who accept get to eat the serum directly, no hiding. It's a plain cup full of mutant serum. Kinda like "red pill blue pill guys, make your choice"But only after they say "yes, I want to join"
>>27322343That makes more sense that hiding it in the cakes.If they ate one and started growing tentacles back at the bandit camp before joining us that's bad shit.
Rolled 69>>27322343i dont htink thats what the serum does, i think turning them into memor is a bit longer of a process than that
>>27322175Yes, and we were doomed before, but now She That Hungers has integrated our two best combat heroes into her already superior Memor.
>>27322370But the serum simply expediates the process I presume. Anyway, the experiment isn't about it anymore now that it's not the open to suggestive kind people thought it us. It's just a way of confirming their desire to join and if the Broodmother can make more accept or not.
Rolled 88>>27322372marcus and alexis? it wouldnt suprise me if both are still alive, though alexis is probably fucked marcus has the entire gigga base at his disposal
Rolled 74>>27322241That feel when trying to figure out how this is gonna go down...in any case rolling for Richard.
Rolled 61>>27322483somehow i get the feeling im going to have to pretty much redo the entire map within a few updates
>>27322511I'm game to do the up close one too if calls for.Nah, it's only gonna be our base. The Ghouls dominate the swamp.
Rolled 44>>27322554i got the 2 that are made after that have the ocean and shit. other people can do the other one i think mine are better anyway
>>27322585They're better at describing the surrounding land beyond our borders and extra details.Mine is more accurate. And up close
Rolled 10>>27322585oh, jeeze this long update is scareing me
Rolled 52>>27322620not that i want to argue, but mine is more geographically correct
Rolled 63>>27322656i should probably add details to the larger map too, huh?
Rolled 36>>27322483Elite is above bad ass. Anyway experiment underway...First control group refused except for 5.Second group...also refused except for 10 this time. Not without much head shaking or muttering however.When they were released...they went back to their camp. That was when mutterings began occuring. At first it wasn't really anything going for...until the second group spoke up in particular a few more unusual bad-asses From both Glows Crew Raiders and the other odd mixture. Then they sent a force to talk with Richard. Richard is simply put MOST annoyed. After that the bandits departed back to their camps. Once they arrived however Torg shows up and shows to the bandits the true meaning of EXPLOSIONS because apparently no one else in the Hivemind understands but he heard good thing about the bandits understanding EXPLOSIONS. Which they totally DID. So it was all AWESOME.[SPOILER] TORG JUST SAVED YOUR ASSES SO FUCKING HARD YOU GOT SO LUCKY I REMEMBERED HIM BEING TURNED INTO A HERO[/SPOILER]
>>27322656Depends. We'll ask EDE.Take the wastelands and busted bunker, how far apart are they?
Rolled 21>>27322024In any caseforces sent out to find Alexis they didn't find anything.Could not research spiders due to not enough resources.Scavengers were sent out they gathered 5 resources.
Rolled 100>>27322686oh dear lord we got do lucky, thatnk you tank you thankyou torg you lovely sonofabitch
Rolled 68>>27322705Month 56>>>>A. Scavenge for food.>>>>B. Try to improve the base>>>>C. Try to improve weapons.>>>>D. Research technology.>>>>E. Pursue new mutations.>>>>F. Explore in a direction/something.>>>>G. Scavenge for raw materials.>>>>H. Your choice5 resource points.
Rolled 72>>27322700yours also has jungle in it when we have no border with the jungle at all
>>27322706Damn, with or without Broodmother (at least we have proof she's effective) that was dangerous.Thank you Torg.
>>27322718Well, OP put it there. He drew the base. Unless it doesn't belong there, does it OP?I'm willing to rearange.
Rolled 37>>27322715Military>Scouts to sane Ghoul leaders. Especially the Ghouls in charge of the missle launch.

Rolled 89>>27322686Well color me surprised. Broodmother actually can do. . .something.Not doing that again though, they don't want to convert one way or the other.
Rolled 84>>27322764>>27322777combine these two inMilitary>Scouts to sane Ghoul leaders. Especially the Ghouls in charge of the missle launch.

>>27322777In which ways is it flawed though? Anyway, it's just a tactical map. Expanded for troop movements.
Rolled 2>>27322792i say that we put the word out that we will convert all who are willing, and that those who do will be in charge of EXPLOSIONS and tanks, directly under EXPLOSION MASTER TORG
Rolled 94>>27322792She has many powerful abilities that I had posted earlier. Not to mention she stays busy its just you never really bother to look into it. Really its because you don't actually use her despite her easily being your strongest hero.
Rolled 61>>27322686Eh, I'm still skeptical.Would the mutterings have been worse with or without the Broodmother?Next time we do crazy shit like that we try on someone who isn't apt to fucking up our base if pissed.
Rolled 88>>27322830We also should go into the suggestion serum research, now that we've confirmed there is credit to subliminal messaging.Also >>27322834 OP is right we're not using our Broodmother to best effect. I mean lazing about around a perpetual orgy is nice and all, but she has much more uses than that.
Rolled 57>>27322837there would be no muttering if there wsnt a broodmotherwe still converted 10% of the control group, which is pretty good. so we could maybe get 100 more memor if we put the word out and then those 100 would go convince the other bandits
Rolled 95>>27322860>>27322834but it seems like her best abilites were combat based and we dont want to risk her, especialy not with She Who Hungers out there
Rolled 89>>27322830>putting out word>From the NIGHTMARE INCARNATE SUPREMEDon't get me wrong I'd love to, but still
Rolled 61>>27322872>there would be no muttering if there wsnt a broodmotherEDE confirm or deny.Eitherway, she's still effective so long as we can eliminate mutterings as a threat by having a safer test populace.Further experiments will need to be conducted on a safer test groups.
Rolled 48>>27322820lots of waysthere is no jungle border with usthere is no jungle to the north westriver runs through not around our swamp (not really that important but necessary if we were to use it)it also seems cluttered, mine is organizedim noting that im not arguing im just pointing shit out in a discussion
Rolled 71>>27322882She Who Hungers(if it is indeed the other broodmother) is Clora'zels mother. >>27322905Confirmed if the broodmother wasn't there it would not have been a problem.
>>27322924I'd like to believe you, I'll change that right away if EDE can say a simple "yep that's right".I'd still appreciate you zoomed in on our territory for the purpose of the next time we need to wage war or plan swamp construction projects in the far future.
>>27322936Well then we know the risks and the benefits.>Broodmother's subliminal "encouraging" can be used to increase convert turnout, however expect increased dissent among those who reject. As such, populations used by the Broodmother (and any other psionic/subliminal/chemical) methods should be used on a group where this would not pose a serious issue.
Rolled 23>>27322944ok, ill make a super zoomed ni version right away
Rolled 31>>27322944If we can keep the ghouls on our side and if they can hold out every one else, we're pretty much safe from war anywhere but the deep swamp.
Rolled 62>>27322965Sounds about right unless EDE says elsewise.I was just pissed earlier because we were using it on a group where dissent meant badshit (namely, the damned 1000 bandits at our base).
Rolled 53>>27322965The only reason increased dissent occured is due to them picking up on BECAUSE their fucking badasses if not outright elites. Their not your common rabble and this is not even including your reputation or anything else into the mix.As for map discussion my map is correct completely its just I got West and East mixed up.
>>27323015So>Broodmother's subliminal "encouraging" can be used to increase convert turnout, however expect increased dissent among those with the heightened intelligence to detect it, and vice versa. The smarter the more likely they will pick up, while conversely the less smart the less they will pick up. As such, populations used by the Broodmother (and any other psionic/subliminal/chemical) methods should be used on a group where they would not be likely to pick up, or dissent by the rejectors would not pose a serious issue.
>>27323015So there is a little bit of jungle to the east between waste and zombie swamp, and a little bit of green to the west of the city.And that means the wastes are relatievly close to the busted bunker/ghoul lairs too.
>>27322806This is the agreed on consensus I presume
Rolled 37>>27323015>>27323015wait wait wait, i was specificaly told that the jungle did not border the north swamp at alland that there is no jungle in the city
Rolled 90>>27323051I would replace smart with experienced as it explains it a bit better. Though being smart certainly does help.
>>27323124Got it. Going in the rulebook.Also for godssake OP, can you attempt a color based key? It won't be that hard.What's the little white thing between the 4 swamps?Also I you won't mind if the little swamp to the bottom right is a different color, to note that it is is the west/left edge of the zombie swamp and not part of the deepmarsh.
Rolled 27>>27323124what do those red block mean?
>>27323170The strange bandits I believe.
Rolled 26>>27323154Different colored swamps is okay as it differentiates turf. As for the little white thing it a base of the faction who are interested in zombies.red boxes areSpecialized bandit zone/base. That feel when I checked the catalog and realized I might have to make a new thread soon just great. Didn't think that would ever happen.

>>27323217Didn't those zombie researcher guys leave? Or did they come back and I must've not noticed.
Rolled 61>>27323255Yes. Mwahahaha! Soon this swamp will be covered in the web of Memor. Then we'll send them into the tunnels.>>27318951This guy knew what was up.Except we'll only convert the wranglers, not the ferals. The ferals we used for fresh meat for the spiders/broodmother

Rolled 83>>27323326They came back?The ferals proliferate, the sentient ghouls are waging war and exterimating the zombies in our swamp and abroad, and their back here?What a strange people. I hope we don't ignore them this time.

Rolled 97>>27323365Scouts sent out they encounter a number of leaders. Mostly at the bases though. As for what they want the memor doesn't got it. That of which they can't salvage or take is traded to them by Markus. Number/ability wise you don't have anything that is worthwhile to them. In fact they consider you small but beyond vicious.

Like a national gift of a single force of an Boomtown SST and some ST's raising the Memor standard high in the air to fight on the frontlines against the zombies to show our support.

>>27323818i still think we should spend the rest of the time we have on developing a doomsday virius and then just unleash it and bunker down
Rolled 55>>27323903Still thinking a doomsday virus will matter in a post apoc? What the hell did you think happened anon? If you thought that was nasty it wasn't shit compared to everything else that was unleashed.
>>27323925"Said the EDE aloud, to Richards ears. Nevertheless, we learned that day even metal can blush with rage"
>>27323925thats what i was afriad of. welp we're deadso EDE, will you run another civ after this one? ill certianly be there, ill even make your maps for you since they were such a clusterfuck this time
Rolled 21Here's what's going down/has gone down.The swamp used to be a huge complex of interlinked research and development bases, with an emphasis on biotech (though they weren't all biotech) and supporting military bases.There is at least one lab in the swamp that specialized in AI and robotics, it's commanded by an AI named EVE. EDE used to work closely with that lab, but is prevented from telling us much anything about it due to programming blocks (that EVE could remove).The major biotech lab in the complex, at the center of what is now the "swamp" was particularly interested in mutation studies. As such at some point they created a brood mother (possibly the first ever), to facilitate their tampering with genetics/biology.Shortly before the world went to shit (possibly because of this very complex), at least one (probably two) slivers of the brood mother that would become our swamp was shipped out of the central lab. Now this brood mother ain't nothing to fuck with. The sliver broke out, and took over the lower labs of our facility. EDE tried, but failed to fully eradicate the outbreak due to its robots running out of fuel (indicating that the central brood-mother coordinated an attack). I consider it possible/probable that the central broodmother [She Who Hungers] unleashed the (or 'a') zombie virus as part of her escape attempt. Evidenced by the fact that the Enclave of our world are interested in the mutants in the swamp.To be continued.
Rolled 24>>27323968Maybe or I might run a quest. I was planning to do so when I needed to take a break. But it seems this game might meet a bloody end. And I am still in the Civ mood so most likely yes. In fact it will even take place in the same setting but a different location entirely. Not about to give up on my clusterfuck of a setting after all.
>>27323968well heres the zoomed in one if it matters, wasnt sure what else to add>>27324018thats all fairly inferable, no great revelations there
Rolled 78>>27324018>Note: a sliver of the central brood mother nearly overran an entire extremely advanced biotech facility.Richard, valiantly [Richard, valiant, lol.] managed to hit the containment switch in the lower labs, sealing himself and the brood mother in until we let them out.Anyway, enough history. Next post will update on pertinent details about us.
>>27324023its a very good and interesting setting, the amount of shit that caused the apoc creates some massive chances for interestingness
>>27324099im just sitting here, spamming the update button
Rolled 24>>27324063So, through the years She Who Hungers encourages the growth of the swamp. She encourages massive mutations to the creatures of the swamp to make them nasty fucks, unleashes terribly plagues in the deepmarsh to kill off weaker creatures, encouraging nastier fucks.Possibly due to old power plants in the facilities in the deepmarsh becoming unstable due to She Who Hungers' escape attempt, or possibly due to some mechanism She instigated the inner swamp became irradiated also. Between the monsters, the zombies, and the radiation She Who Hungers is now safe. She begins to devote her time to wider ranging things, including psionic development.We are the result of that line of development. We came from the caves of the swamp (sure didn't come from nowhere), where we had been slowly designed by She Who Hungers mechanisms.We aren't the only product of her psionic aims though.
>>27324139i thought we originated in the wasteland, or maybe we just went there as soon as we left deep swamp
>>27324139I want to see where do our beloved heroes fit into this. Namely the Prophet. Heros? Villains? Pawns?
Rolled 82>>27324139To begin with, there's at least one of clan of Memor (or something similar, definitely something with a hivemind) still floating about in the caves below us.It's possible that its the creatures of the broodmother sister of Cloara'Zel that's going to attack us the next turn. By the way, the broodmother sister of Cloara'Zel (who also came from a sliver of She Who Hungers) has been actively infiltrating our hivemind, covering things from our eye, deceiving us, shielding heroes' intentions.For instance, when she made us think that the fleshbeasts that came out of the tunnel collapsed by Marcus' Mobile Base were ours. Anyway.
>>27324172dont think of this as an epilouge, this is an infodump so that we can survive the coming months
>>27324200we get The Prophet on purging that bitch fast
>>27324208Or the upcoming days.Or hours.It matters not.We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in our base, we shall fight on the swamps and the tunnels, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing radiation in the air, we shall defend our base, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the forest, we shall fight on the erupting grounds, we shall fight in the toxic fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrenderRemember Ramona!
>>27324227Hold on there bucko. It's getting to the good part.Where the Prophet and Clara fits into all this.
Rolled 100>>27324172>>27324200The Prophet of Fate is either another experiment by She Who Hungers, sent into this base to lead us to it so we could fulfill some goal that I've yet to identify...or a happy accident we happened to be drawn to who had happened to occupy this extremely advanced biotech base in the middle of an extremely hostile swamp, who has been nudged by Cloara'Zel's sister's psionics into not seeing things he would've otherwise noted.Particularly I think certain Memor may be corrupted. If we had forcefully converted anyone into Memorhood/the hivemind then they would've been especially vulnerable to corruption, and also the chaos in the hivemind would've allowed our broodmother enemies greater avenues into it.
>>27324263im thinkin that 100 should mean The Prophet says "Fuck You" to Clora'Zels sister and literaly murders her with his mind and Clora'zel gains her fleshbeasts (if she is still on our side)
>>27324263>Particularly I think certain Memor may be corrupted. If we had forcefully converted anyone into Memorhood/the hivemind then they would've been especially vulnerable to corruption, and also the chaos in the hivemind would've allowed our broodmother enemies greater avenues into it.I thought we couldn't force the hivemind on anyone. And the loyalty guarantee?All but the heroes. . . EDEEEEEEEE
>>27324298EDE is clearly corrupted himself.
>>27324298not that big of a deal, EDE may be the only uncorrupted one, him and Warlord and Torg. cause strongarms are bros
Rolled 99>>27324298>>27324313This is only what anon thinks is correct. It may not entirely be true After he is finished I will say how much anon has gotten right per a post but wont say what he got wrong per a say
Rolled 25>>27324263Cloara'Zel is possibly in with her sister and/or She Who Hungers.By the way, you think the fleshbeasts that effortlessly caught Alexis (our most powerful hero) were difficult? They aren't even the vanguard, they're just the workers.Back to Cloara, I'm unsure of whether she's in on it. It's more than possible that she is (maybe even likely). It would certainly seem like it'd be easier for the Prophet of Fate to have aspects of the hivemind kept from his view if there were TWO (possibly 3, with She Who Hungers [though I'm not sure we're actually powerful enough to warrant her notice]) extremely potent psionic units actively working to deceive him. Of whom one is IN the hive mind.On the other hand, I asked Cloara about things at the end of the last thread and her answers are what set me about on discovering all of this. The answers also seemed competitive."No, my gatherers aren't that powerful. Not yet."[in reference to whether or not she could acquire samples of the advanced fleshbeasts she had encountered in the depths of the swamp]
>>27324332the fact that we presumed the absolute loyalty of all non hero members, and then it turning out might not be true is a very VERY big deal.Maybe they are loyal and believe, but are tricked or fooled? We've been duped before.
>>27324387It also may have something to do with Marcus ordering armor then saying he didn't order any
Rolled 70Threads nearing the end o the catalog. Best keep this up.Also is that 100 gonna give us a bit of a snowballs chance?
Rolled 29>>27324368Let's see, what else did I discover?The high-tech bandits are likely a faction of the Marauders, the faction that briefly stopped in our swamp very early in the Civ. The warlord that was with the bandit band in that instance mentioned something about parlaying with mutants then "why do you think we're losing?'I theorize that the mutants they were fighting have conquered/allied them. Those mutants are the uber-specops soldiers who planted strange devices on our SSTs that disabled them when we attacked the fortified bandit position a thread or two ago. They have a hivemind, or at least psionic communication among themselves, with someone akin to the Prophet of Fate at their head.It's possible their Prophet of Fate (named "Cortana") is the EVE AI mentioned earlier (or some as-yet unknown AI), as certain military based specialized in tech-psionic hybrid projects [evidenced by the tech-psionic shield on the bandit base that was our first major defeat in this Civ.].
Rolled 40>>27324459 A heroic sacrifice acts a fate point which may give you a chance. Depending on said hero I already got one lined up just in case.
Rolled 95>>27324449He did order it for you guys. As your armor was...pitiful to say the least. Basically he had compition among the ghoul war bands over who could collect the most/best armor. They would get an excellent deal from dear old Markus. Which you denied. Pity too it was some seriously kick ass shit.
>>27324499I say we sacrifice the ghoul heros first, we haven't done shit with them and thereis 2of them
>>27324474So the dreamers, our friends, where they really? Where they fighting against these guys?They did mention they were dissastisfied with new leadership.They sent us a substatnial bombing support too against the other bandits too. And certainly if they were working with, rather than against, these other marauders they'd opened up the combox when we started attacking.>inb4 check the combox>"You have 137 unread messages"
Rolled 38>>27324474The monsters of the swamp are under She Who Hungers control, and likely to an extent Cloara's sister's control (though I doubt she controls them as well as her mother). They are, after all, going to apeshit all over us in a turn or two. Right when she's coming with thousands of fleshbeasts/mutant Memor (and possibly turning Cloara's fleshbeasts on us).Rather clever of She Who Hungers, actually. Populate her swamps with simple, brutishly powerful creatures who wouldn't be able to resist a psionic pull on their minds to attack what She needed.While still defending Her. That way She could keep her psionic profile low, meaning that people like the psionic bandits accompanying the high tech bandits wouldn't find out about her easily.The psionic/tech bandits do know about She Who Hungers though...I don't know how. They hate her and wish her destroyed. They saw Her/Her offspring's influence on us though, and accordingly rejected our offers of peace and assistance.
>>27324518If these high tech bandits were part of the marauders they would have said so in hopes of an alliance
Rolled 51>>27324517Their independent at the moment so you can't use them.
>>27324536>They saw Her/Her offspring's influence on us though, and accordingly rejected our offers of peace and assistance.I can't say I blame them.
>>27324540Hey hey hey that's bull. We rolled hundreds and got heros we should be able to sacrifice them when we need to. At the very least we need to be able to call them for aid
Rolled 33>>27324536Hmm, wishing her death can't be the only thing. They also had some kind of "rescue mission".Maybe she who hungers has taken one important of their own?
Rolled 40>>27324577You never inducted them into the Hivemind. Plus they are too far away to be of use.
>>27324536Is She Who Hunters responsible for the ghouls too?
>>27324598Which is why they rally the ghouls too come to our rescue
Rolled 18>>27324537Why would they want to ally with us? The Dreamers were a small sect of the Marauders as a whole. It's very possible the rest of the Marauders despised us for whatever reasons.>>27324518>>27324536There is a possibility I haven't talked about yet. That our allies/heroes/etc. all haven't told us about the influence from She Who Thirsts that they saw because they couldn't tell us without Her knowing, and if She knew their plans would be fucked.Along that line, it's possible that Marcus left because he knew he couldn't pursue our survival while his knowledge was accessible by the hivemind.If anyone wants to ask questions, I'd be happy to answer. I feel like I discovered other things but have forgotten.Now would be a good time to start another thread.By the by, it's likely that, as a creation/experiment of She Who Hungers, we have a killswitch or a virus tailored to kill us or what have you. And it's possible-to-likely that Cloara's sister has access to it.That's it. Questions? New thread? Be sure to post a link here.
Rolled 62>>27324619that is assuming a LOT of thingst anon.
Rolled 82>>27324619Rescue what? They said so themselves "you don't have anything of value". Not even our enourmous stockpiles of fuel.Then again, we DID send that support force. Maybe they'll have a heart.
Rolled 10>>27324634Yeah a new thread needs to happen.
Rolled 4>>27324634New thread. We shall decide our fate.
Rolled 59>>27324601Yes. They're simple creatures, easily influenced by psionic impulses, vicious, and deter exploration of the deepswamp.OH FUCK, RIGHT. SHE WHO HUNGERS IS USING THE GHOULS/US TO TERRAFORM THE OUTER SWAMP FOR HER.
>>27324651Fuuuuck, she's trying to turn the outer swamp into the inner swamp
Rolled 41>>27324651>A mysterious ghoul approaches us with an offer>We set off shitloads of radioactivity-inducing bombs>Ghouls move in, fight things>Greater monster presence "Because there's less food in the deepmarsh" (how would you even know that EDE :P )>Generally shit has gotten worse here the longer we've gone onShe Who Hungers used us to expand the swamp. She's making this section Deep Marsh so she can expand towards the city! That's why she made us! Fuck, I remember now!
Rolled 96>>27324695Anyway, new thread yet? Questions?
Rolled 40>>27324695Maybe that's why our own terraforming projects had such an arbitrarily high requirement.
Rolled 41>>27324018Mostly correct correct.>>27324139somewhat correct.>>27324200Kinda correct to a degree anyway.>>27324263Somewhat correct.>>27324368Mostly correct>>27324474mostly wrong.>>27324536Nigh completely correct.>>27324634kinda...There is your reward for figuring out a good chunk. I honestly thought no could figure anything out which was sorta depressing...
Rolled 36>>27324727No, I don't think so. I think that's because of She Who Hungers also. (She's had hundreds of years of strategizing). I think it's so high because it's terribly difficult to terraform the swamp. What good would the swamp be as a deterrent to discovery if you could get rid of it easily?Oh, also I think the swamp exists to cover up the labs that might hold the secrets to killing She Who Hungers
Rolled 82Where did the old skullfuckers fit? Poor saps just trying to make a buck we happened to kick out (all part of SWT's plan?)
