Last Time on Digger Quest!: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29295883/Check my twitter for Quest Schedules and Updates: https://twitter.com/Crosswire Bass Treble Character Sheet and Inventory: http://pastebin.com/vHbjpWdLRules for Experience and Damage: http://pastebin.com/19xWixbQAfter taking a shower and getting dressed, you look at yourself in the mirror and smile. You still feel a bit beat up, but yesterday was a great day for you. You made a new friend; you kicked the crap out of some assholes, salvaged a fighter without their help, and investigated the Forest Ruins without being killed by those strange Black Zakobons.Not everything turned out great yesterday though. Cruiser knows where a crashed ship is that you can fix up, but it needs a ton of work and it’ll take at least 40,000 Zenny to get running, not including things like furniture, beds, kitchen supplies, est. You have 3150 Zenny from your exploits, but that’s going to disappear fast unless you can get some more money soon.You have the whole day ahead of you however, so weather things get better or worse is all up to you.So what do you want to do Bass?>[A] Go check in with Cruiser at the garage, see what he salvaged from that Fighter>[B] You’re going to need a boat to get to the three remaining ruins on this island. Maybe you could look for a boat to buy or fix?>[C] Other (Write in)

>>29631930What did Ira do while we were messing about yesterday? I can't remember what she said she was going to do.
>>29632679Went shopping and making some sort of weapon from that giant syringe, I think.
>>29632749>weapon from that giant syringehowhorrifying.png
>>29632006>How was the hols Cross?A tad fucked up, but overall it could have been worse. Had some fun so it was alright in the end.>>29631966>>29632000>>29632209> [A] Go check in with Cruiser at the garage, see what he salvaged from that FighterEager to find out what cruiser saved from the fighter you crashed, you leave the Sleeper Inn and rush to Tom and Tom's junk store, giving the two a brief wave as you slide over the counter and make your way into the back garage.You find Cruiser standing next to the skeletal frame of the fighter in the process of cutting it up with a large, menacing saw."Hey Crusier! What kind of salvage did you manage to pull from the fighter?" You ask cheerfully as you walk over to him, though you keep out of his reach in case he drops that saw."Mostly just metal and scrap metal to be honest, though I did manage to save a few things." Cruiser walks you over to a table and shows you what you pulled out of the fighter."Two heavy machineguns and most of their ammo. They were built to be mounted on an aircraft so they're pretty heavy, but they can deal some good damage and throw out a lot of bullets. I don't think you'll be able to carry these around with you, but they might make a good mounted weapon for a ship or a boat." He picks up one of the guns to show you, obviously struggling to lift the heavy weapon, and for someone of his strength that's saying a lot.(Continued)
>>29631930>[A] Go check in with Cruser at the garage, see what he salvaged from that FighterSWEET, IT TIME.Let the 20's rain.
>>29632834He sets the gun down and picks up a Orange Refractor. "This is barely an A-Class refractor. Not worth a whole lot, but it could power a motor or an engine if you wanted it too." He sets the Refractor down on the workbench and points to the large pile of metal."I think the metal I got from the fighter shaved off 1000 zenny from the stuff I'll need to finish the ship, and I have plenty of scrap metal if I need to do any temporary repairs or throw something together for you." Crusier leans against the workbench as you look over the stuff.[A] Ask if Cruiser knows where you can get a boat, or if there's anyway he could build a boat. [B] Ask where Ira is.[C] Other (write in)

>>29632920>>29632919>>29632898>>29632881>>29632963>[B] Ask where Ira is."Hey Cruiser, have you seen Ira anywhere?" You ask, realizing you haven't seen her since yesterday."Yeah she was here a couple minutes ago, you just missed her. She went to the diner to pick us up some food, she expected you'd be getting up so I think she's going to order you something." Cruiser explains, picking up and playing with the orange Refractor."Isn't the Diner a bit more expensive?" You ask."Yeah, but not by too much. Besides Ira doesn't think it's healthy for us to eat nothing but greasy pizza. She is a doctor of sorts, remember?" "Good point...">[A] Ask if Cruiser knows where you can get a boat, or if there's anyway he could build a boat. "Hey Cruiser, do you know where I can get or rent a boat to take me to those other ruins?" You ask."No, sorry I don't. I tried to help last time but that just led us to Hunter. Besides renting an entire boat just to get to the island would be a waste of money, if you bought a small enough boat you could keep it and store it on the ship when we get it working" Cruiser points out."Well if you don't know anyone to buy a boat from...could you build one?" You ask."Maybe, what were you thinking?" Cruiser asks.[A] Build a scrap metal boat and build a motor using the refractor[B] Make your car amphibious and mount those machineguns on there!

>>29633288Well. I personally think that's kind of a silly idea. On the other hand, this is a world full of silly ideas, and it's bad luck to deny the dice gods their will. Let's build an amphibious boat.
>>29633397They got plasma cannon and flying fucking ships.If we can't make a car able to go on the ocean as a boat, then the dude need to go back to engie school.
>>29633288A little gem from PPQ, you rule man
>>29633449Yes. That's what I meant. It's dumb, but it's awesome and fits the setting. So let's do it.
>>29633288Well, nice to see Bass is still the god of luck incarnate.
I am imagining Crosswire right now silently swearing in front of his computer.
(Alright, for rolls over DC 20 range, 20's do not entail automatic success, just letting that be known now)>>29633288>>29633359>>29633389>20"Why don't you make your car amphibious? I remember this one time on this radio program there was this Digger who turned a van into a boat, and mounted grenade launchers and stuff on it. It was awesome and I bet you could do the same thing, only instead of grenade launchers you could mount the machineguns!" You say with an eager smile as the ridiculously awesome idea dawns on you.Cruiser is about say something to defend his precious car, but he stops and thinks about it. "Well, whatever parts or modifications I make could easily be taken off if it hindered with it's ability to drive on land too much. Now that I think about it the AE86 has always been easy to customize. It wasn't meant to be modified like this but..." Cruiser stays silent, looking between his work bench and his beloved car."Alright. It'll take about 1000 bucks for some special parts, but I think I can do with what I have here. Do you want to help or do you have other things you want to do? This will take a while."Do you want to help Cruiser Bass or do you want to leave him to his work and do something else?
>>29633584Help him out. We got Craft so let do this.
>>29633584Help him with our dumb idea
>>29633584Lets help him while we wait for Ira
>>29633584Help him out.
>>29633584Well, we finally broke Crosswire. He's given up on this world of bizarre coincidence and has changed his rules accordingly. Critical successes are gone. Now, how do we get him to let go of critical failures, too? Because we've made too many of those over in AGE Quest.Anyway, let's help. Have him get a list of what he needs, and we'll go buy it and return here. And some tarps. We'll get some tarps. Just in case it winds up not entirely water proof. Then we build.
>>29633584Wake up to see this, feels good man.help him for >>29633605, but we should be ready incase Cruiser decides to take his frustrations out on Ira.
>>29633584Hey Crosswire, if 20 aren't automatic success, then 1 aren't automatic failures right? That be fair.
>>29633659Tarps (maybe birdlime as well), equipment in case we spring a leak, those floating vests, maybe some diving equipment, the works.
Rolled 12 + 10>>2963372620's don't mean automatic successes for Difficulty Challanges (DC) over 20. So if your Target is 30, or 40, you can't roll a 20 and topple a battleship with sheer luck. With DC's at or under 20 however they will still mean Automatic successes. 1 is always a critical failure, regardless of the DC.>>29633665>>29633659>>29633634>>29633618>>29633612>>29633605You decide to help him out and are given a list of parts and materials. You spend 1000 Zenny and come back with a cart of stuff and plenty of tarps. Then you and Cruiser get down to trying to modify the car...(Roll 1d20+1 to try and help Cruiser)
>>29633665WAIT DAMNIT, I DIDNT MEAN CRUISER, I MEANT THAT ASSHOLE GUY WE FLIPPED OFF.
Rolled 5 + 1>>29634019>(Roll 1d20+1 to try and help Cruiser)
Rolled 18 + 1>>29634019Rolling.>>29634055Hunter?
Rolled 16 + 1>>29634019
Rolled 18 + 1>>29634080OK, so we got an 19 and a 22 on making the car.Cruiser got the 22.
>>29634080Yeah, him. We beat him up when he mentioned what he'd do to Ira, right? Since he wasn't able to take revenge with salvaging the ship, his next likely target is her.
>>29634019>20's don't mean automatic successes for Difficulty Challanges (DC) over 20. So if your Target is 30, or 40, you can't roll a 20 and topple a battleship with sheer luck. With DC's at or under 20 however they will still mean Automatic successes. 1 is always a critical failure, regardless of the DC.But if the DC is below twenty, than a 20 would have been a success anyway, right? And if the DC is so high that a 20 can't beat it, than what's the point of rolling?Maybe I'm just misinterpreting it, but making it so 20's only work on DC's below 20 seems kinda pointless.
>>29634238I guess a nat 20 would still count as a success, though it won't be something earth-shattering.
>>29634238it just means that he won't let us try to roll for comically impossible feats of heroism, or that we would automatically fail if we tried something stupid.
Rolled 17 + 1>>29634378no anon, it will not count for a success.However, stuff like stats and special rules can allow a +10 like Cruiser but with our stats....30 or 40 be impossibles.Even with our highest stat will, we just get a fucking +4 on rolls.kinda bullshit.
>>29634412it's probably a +4 for stat and a +6 for craft, pretty high to start, but it makes sense considering his character.
>>29634019>20's don't mean automatic successes for Difficulty Challanges (DC) over 20. So if your Target is 30, or 40, you can't roll a 20 and topple a battleship with sheer luck. With DC's at or under 20 however they will still mean Automatic successes. 1 is always a critical failure, regardless of the DC.I know this is to prevent really stupid successes, but we can still purposely fail for the XPs, right? Do something we have no intention of succeeding in and stack talents?
Rolled 3 + 1>>29634446Our Combat spec character don't get those bonuses.Criuser be a better fucking digger than us because he just as strong and smarter than Bass.>>29634499Dude, last thread we got 20 and successes but we got nothing except for the language bullshit due to plot.Do we have to FAIL to learn anything or to be better?Cause that what I starting to think if we want the really good special rules and add stats.
>>29634499I think only successes will net us EXP and traits.
Rolled 2 + 1>>29634532I mean by bonuses is that we get jack shit for being a digger except for like a +1 in combat.We even get the same bonus in crafting.
>>29634532Look at the rules document. We need to do spectacular things to get new talents. The degree of success or failure doesn't matter, it's how memorable the event is that counts. We need to constantly raise the stakes to make sure every encounter has an important impact on Bass. If this was a book, and you were to point out the most important events for Bass's character development, those are when we'd get talents.That's why we got a talent for resisting torture, because it was our first real taste of serious pain.
>>29634532Cruiser isn't skilled at weaponry, and Bass is a pretty good talker, which is more useful than you might think. Stealth, traps, aim, heck, strength is mostly for recoil in a setting with guns and rocket launchers. Cruiser's just higher level than us to start with, which is good because a low-level mechanic is effectively when a digger also knows a bit about machinery.>>29634561both successes and fails can net perks, and almost everything gives XP. The problem is that the number of 20s we rolled is fucking ridiculous, and would break the game if we seriously considered which of those would give a perk.
Rolled 13 + 1>>29634644That what I fucking hate.We the character get stronger, thus the GM makes the foes stronger.Then what the point of getting stronger? What the point of getting lucky and getting the benefits?We had multiple 20's in last few threads and we got JACK. Nothing. Zip.This isn't a story but a quest damn it.
Rolled 14 + 10>>29634238>>29634563>>29634561>>29634532You guys are misunderstanding me. Things with a high DC in the 30's-40's are stuff that's ether incredibly difficult to do or nearly impossible. So far you haven't ran into anything like that or tried anything like that. Once you get to a higher level, get more skills, and more talents, you'll be able to succeed in exceeding dangerous and difficult things. You'll still be able to attempt things for experience and such, but certain things you'll want to reconsider doing due to the risk to Bass (like trying to jump a massive canyon in motorcycle).I just don't want you guys rolling 20's and succeeding at stupidly impossible things, and then trying it again, failing,and getting Bass gored. On the topic of Crusier, he's a Level 5 mechanic and has almost all his skills in crafting, with a little in unarmed fighting. He's untrained in using anything but simple weapons, and he has less HP then Bass because he's better suited toward combat. >>29634080>18+1=19>Cruiser's Roll: 22>Success! With Cruiser working admirably and you helping him to the best of your abilities despite never having worked on a car before, you and him manage to turn his car into an amphibious, machine-gun touting vehicle.You and him drive it out to the docks and give it a test drive. It runs pretty well, it goes rather fast through the water and there's no leaking. Still, you wouldn't want to take it out on the sea and try to drive too another island with it. but you don't really plan to do that, you just plan on driving to something close by.Driving it to the shop you find Ira is waiting for you with food. "Wow! What did you guys do to the car? I was only gone for a few hours...""Say hello to the AE86 Type-A." Cruiser says with an excited laugh. "This baby will be able to get Bass here to those islands, and we have a couple machineguns mounted on top in case we run into anything nasty on the way there."(Continued)
Rolled 14 + 10>>29634757As for me not rewarding the natural 20's bit, I'm sorry. It's just there we so damn many of them that I realized it kind of fucked up the system I had going since I thought they would be less frequent. However I'll amend that right now. Whenever you guys roll a 20 you'll get a Talent Point. You can save these up to spend on specific talents instead of just relying on the ones you get through doing awesome/crazy shit. You'll still get talents from doing crazy shit, but in case you roll 20's doing regular stuff you'll still be rewarded for it. Plus, at the end of every game you'll get to point out if you did do awesome shit you did and get talents for them in case I have a brain fart and miss it. How does that sound?(Also, FYI, you guys got a talent for convincing Cruiser to make his car amphibious) >>29634757"Will we still be able to drive it around?" Ira asks, noting how much heavier it looked."Yeah, it won't be as fast on land, but I figure once we're done here and we have the ship I'll be able to modify these parts and the car to be more modular, so we can make equipment for the car. This baby will be able to take us anywhere!" Cruiser says excitedly. The three of you sit down and begin to eat. So what are your plans for the day Bass? Are you going to go out and start digging in the ruins you can now get too, or did you have other things in mind?
>>29634747in terms of game balance, it's fairer for perks to come from failure. I think getting a perk for being awesome is just fluff, and something to remember the event by.we MIGHT have gotten a perk for taking apart the fighter, but it makes more sense to get that machine gun.It's difficult to be awesome at perception, and a perk based on that will probably be for lie-detecting.>>29635001oh. I was actually gonna archive binge to see what else would work, but this is fine too. Bass is really turning into one charismatic talker, isn't he? It's actually quite interesting, when you compare him to megaman.>call home, ask dad about mom
>>29635001Do some shopping, get supplies we need (we used some stuff in those ruins the day before, so lets resupply). We need to find out as much as we can about those ruins we'll be visiting as well, so if there's someone with info on them, we need to visit them. I'm guessing the mayor or the police chief? Might as well use the chance to find out more about the pirates or if they managed to contact our dad.
>>29635073We can't do that. Our home island isn't connected to this one by phone line. Would be nice to check in on him, but wouldn't work.>>29635001As for what we can do, let's first warn Ira about what Hunter said. I figure she knows about him already(given how he acts he's definitely hit on her and been turned down) but still worth a heads up. Then let's go sailing to the sea ruins. I don't think we'll get a chance to enter yet, but we should still scout around. Mayor Gold said the Reaverbots of the sea ruins were more active, so there might be some guarding the entrance. Let's scope them out and prepare for our attack.
Rolled 16 + 1>>29635001Lets resupply and rest.
>>29635001>>29635147send a letter, tell him we're safe, and vaguely ask about the pendant?giving Ira a heads up also sounds good.I'm up for getting the car running and testing it on the sea ruins. We're gonna need all the firepower we can get for when the pirates come.the machinegun CAN point upwards, right?
>>29635240I wouldn't mind if we made sure that thing is actually capable of firing.Especially if we run into some swimming reaverbots or something sinister.
>>29635240This works well>>29634757Also are the guns top mounted or side mounted, do they rotate or are we gonna upgrade that later as part of the modularization process?
Rolled 9 + 10>>29635365>>29635321>>29635240>>29635156>>29635147>>29635128The guns are mounted on top of the car, on a crude turret Cruiser put together. He replaced the roof with one he could put a hole through and mount the turret on. It's a bit hard to move around, but you should be able to attack things around, behind, and above you without too much problem. As for the gun itself you fired it off when you tested the car at the docks. It's loud and the guns have some nasty recoil, but they seem pretty powerful. You consider going shopping, but considering you only used a single flare from the Flare gun and a little chalk you figure you don't need to resupply yet. As you think of going to the other ruins to investigate them you talk to Ira about Hunter and what happened yesterday."I'm sorry about him. I ran into him a couple months ago at the hospital. He's been following me around and trying to get me to date him ever since. I haven't seen him for a while, so I figured he'd given up. I apologize that you had to waste your time with him, though I appreciate how you stood up for me. Still please don't put yourself in danger to deal with my petty issues." "Having some butt hole like that bothering you isn't a petty issue. You're one of the first real friends I've had, I'm not going to let anyone even talk about hurting you." You state firmly."Alright, still, I hope he doesn't try to get back at you I'd hate for my problem to become yours...">+Ira trusts you more and will continue to worry about you.You finish lunch and you're eager to go to the other ruins now that you have a means to get there besides swimming. Who do you want to take with you? or do you want to do something else before you go? Maybe you could mail a letter to your island. If your father is still alive he will most definitely send a reply. It'll be slow, but it's better then sitting around and worrying about his fate.
>>29635889Let's mail a letter to dad.Also, did we fix our armor? I think we got it broken during the fight with that humanoid reaverbot.
Rolled 10 + 1>>29635889Lets send that letter and ask Ira to come with us explore.Lets be extra careful with her around.
>>29635889forgot about this>>29635949. Always keep equipment properly maintained and in good condition.Also, the whole point about telling Ira is that she should worry about HERSELF, not us. Hunter's probably not done yet, considering his type.send the letter, most important task.if we're going to the island, bring everyone. Cruiser drives, and Ira can perform first aid if we have a repeat of last time.
>>29635889Send a letter to dad, just checking in letting him know we're still alive and make some inquires into mom, cause a killbot- hang why again are we asking him this I forgot. Still send a letter
>>29636032Yeah, that sounds reasonable. We need to maintain our stuff - fix the armor, check the buster gun, all that.And we could take the whole team with us - Ira for first aid, Cruiser for driving and protecting the car, while we go out to explore the ruins.
>>29636044no need to get specific. Just tell him we're fine, and fish for hints about mom, nothing about revearbots unless he mentions it. Besides, I'm not too confident on the privacy of the letter being kept safe.
>>29635962Ira is basically the one who serves as our Roll in terms of function. Saving our butt if we get KO'd and providing first-aid once we get out of there and also our monitor. We don't bring her in, but her being near the entrance is good. Cruiser will likely be needed to drive us there and back as well. He can also get Ira to safety if reaverbots come.
I just sent you an email, Crosswire.
>>29635949>>29636032>>29636044You didn't have the armor repaired. It has a few broken ceramic inserts, but it's not too bad. Still, you decide to keep your armor in it's best condition and give it to Cruiser to fix along with your buster gun to look over and check, giving him 300 Zenny so he can make replacement inserts.While he's repairing your armor you get a letter and some postage stamps and write your father a letting him know that you're alive, and asking about how he is, Mom, and the pendant she gave you.Dropping it in the mailbox you return to the workshop and wait for the repairs to your armor to be finished.You'll probably want to bring Ira long with you and Cruiser has to come since he's the one driving, but do you really want too bring Ira inside the ruin with you? To your knowledge she doesn't have a weapon and it can get pretty dangerous...>[A] Ira should stay in the car with Cruiser, it's gonna get dangerous.>[B] Convince Ira to come into the ruins with you>[C] Other (write in)

>>29636664[A] For a first run, Bass should go in first to scout out the area, find the big shinnies and traps. Two people can help, but as is, Ira isn't properly trained for combat. Once we clear the bigger problems and just need salvage, yeah.
>>29636664Ira should stay in the car with Cruiser, it's gonna get dangerous. Once we get out in the world more, we can work on getting the whole team outfitted.
>>29636707>>29636725>>29636734>>29636743>>29636755all in agreementthey should work on their own thing while we're in there, though.
>>29636743>>29636725>>29636707>>29636755(You're not rolling for anything so don't worry)You decide it's a better idea if Ira stays with Cruiser. Maybe once you have some more experience in ruins and they have proper equipment, then maybe you can think of bringing the gang along, until then you'll be counting on them to save your ass if you get the crap kicked out of you.Once your vest is fixed you put it on and everyone climbs into the car. Cruiser starts it up and drives towards the beach, deciding to take the car to the islands through the longer water route to get a better feeling on how it handles in water.The scenery is nice and even as you man the turret keeping a watchful eye out, even you are calmed by the sound of the waves and the smell of salt int he air...As you approach the first of the islands that's supposed to have a ruin on it Cruiser slows down. "Do you want me to drive onto the island or cricle around it?" He asks.[A] Have him circle the island so you can get an idea of what's on it.

Rolled 12 + 1>>29637076>[A] Have him circle the island so you can get an idea of what's on it.Make sure there is no giant reaverbots
>>29637274Pretty sure people would be talking about giant reaverbot island. Sounds like something people would talk about.
>>29637411Maybe we should ask, just in case. We really haven't been paying attention to the local rumors or stories, besides the "there's something bad inside the ruins" part.
>>29637076>[A] Have Cruiser circle around the island.Bass is on the hunt lookin for a come-up cause this fuckin awesome
>>29637495do they have a camera? I can just see Cruiser and Bass posing while Ira takes a picture.
>>29637440Bad in one of the islands. If I recall there are 3 ruins and one is the seven man party eater. Just need to be careful and hope what we need is in the two non big name ones.
>>29637583We do know which ruin is which, right? And we're going to the tamer one?
>>29637636We were told which one I believe since it's the one where reaverbots breached the surface. Of course we would go to the tamer ones first though. Even if we don't find the refractor we need, it will have parts and things we can use for our digger gear and money for our ship. Who knows? We may find another talking reaverbot and it might just be sane.
>>29637583Speaking of which, did we ever bother to ask which ruin was the one where those 12 guys died? You'd think that would be the first thing we'd do upon hearing that piece of information.
>>29637076I just sent a second email, my first one didn't go through.
Rolled 12 + 1>>29637774We did ask. The answer was that it was one of the ruins on the islands. Not sure which one.
>>29637818Well, if the reaverbots broke through, we'll probably see something suspicious going on from afar.
>>29637131>>29637147>>29637156>>29637274>>29637636>>29637774Yes. You know that the ruin that killed those Diggers is on largest of the three islands. You're going to one of the two smaller islands to check out the ruins on them. You don't know if it's any safer on the other islands or not, but that's why you're scoping it out firstYou have Cruiser circle the island so you can get a look around. He doesn't fully circle it, since that would bring him closer to the larger island, but he doubles back and allows you to see about 75% of the island. It's not very big, mostly covered by shrubs and bushes, only a few scrawny trees.The ruin entrance is very visible thanks to the lack of foliage. It's a ridged, tower like structure that stands about 15 feet tall and has a faint bronze color to it. The door to enter the ruin seems similar to the ones inside of the forest ruin and should open without any issues. Overall, it seems pretty safe, you don't see any Reaverbots, traps, or other structure besides the tower. What do you want to do?>[A] Check out the other small Island>[B] Try to observe the larger island from here and see what you can see.>[C] Other
Rolled 19 + 1>>29637889Lets just go explore those ruins.
>>29637889> [A] Check out the other small IslandWe're here to do some digging. Find a safe place to park the car, and lets start preparing for this thing - use the radios for communication with our outside team, scout the ruins before descending, that stuff.
>>29637889enter this tower. Have cruiser and Ira prepared to blow up any reaverbots that come if we have to run away, and be careful incase the pirates or Hunter comes.
>>29637889[A] just so we are sure what the final island is like. A tower type will likely be different compared to the cave types we dealt with. Less branching corridors and more a gauntlet.
>>29637889>[A] Invade the small island, claim glory and riches
>>29638104silly fox, we're not here for those, we're here for POWER-I mean parts.
>>29638197And possibly to find something to tow back so we can flip hunter another double bird.
>>29638285Like a boat? Or an airship?
>>29638285no need to bait. That will just end worse for us.
>>29638308..remember that one big refractor at the end of Megaman Legends 1?
>>29638023>>29637968>>29637941>>29638080>>29638104You decide to leave the other towers alone and just focus on this one for now. You have Cruiser pull up onto the island and park the car under a tree in a thick batch of bushes to try to stay out of sight. Getting out you slip your Buster Gun over your arm and check your equipment, calling Ira on her radio to make sure it works.>"Yep I can here you Bass. Let us know what happens down there OK?""Same goes for you guys, if anything happens up here please tell me.""Absolutely. Good luck Bass!"Looking up at a tall bronze tower and the deep blue sky above it, you walk up to it and enter through it's doors, ready to find treasure...(I'm gonna set up the map now, it might take a little but since I'm using a program now, but it'll make things a lot easier for everyone.)
>>29638285This will be our running gag. Towing stuff with Cruiser's car while flipping off Hunter. Eventually he'll try digging himself to show us up, only for us to have to rescue him from Reaverbots. Neither of us will learn any important life lessons from the event, because we'll hate each other too much.
>>29638361make sure to properly black out the map this time
>>29638361..you know, this gets me thinking. Maybe the other towers are silver and gold? Silver being the second, Gold being REAVERBOTS EVERYWHERE.
>>29638361I wonder if there's a way to subtly show/hide cracks. That way we don't need to waste time telling you to check for some every room/corridor.
>>29638340I doubt we'll find something that nice in here - this place was probably already cleaned by previous diggers.Maybe we'll find some old blueprints or old tech that we can use, or a bit bigger refractor.
>>29638619ANY refractor can be considered "something nice". The blue prints or old tech are a definite possibility, though, even if it's already looted.
>>29638467I think we could do that with some candles. You know, in case there's a crack nearby, the air will move and the flame will flicker.>>29638714Yeah, fair enough. We'll need to check out what's inside anyway.Maybe we find more clues about the reaverbots being sentient or something.
I wonder if Reaverbots can be used as scrap.
Rolled 14 + 1>>29638781I don't see why not, but they have a tendency to explode on death.
>>29638714Yeah. Considering the number of reaver bots and how many things require A-class refractors, I wouldn't be surprised if some towers just have spares waiting or they somehow make more.
>>29638781they commonly self-destruct upon defeat, leaving only refractors. That's why non-lethal takedowns are so valuable in the Legends setting.>>29638768working magic with the narrative could be hard, but it could work. I was thinking more of really subtle effects on the map itself.
>>29638285>Bass used mean look. It's super effective, Hunter is pissed
>>29638878>Ira used Censorship, Bass is now disabled, cannot use actions that require middle finger.
>>29638913>Bass used Teleport. We'll finish this later
>>29638361You're very shocked when you come to a small, dark, and empty room inside of the tower. Turning on your headlamp you shine it around hoping to discover stairs, or a ladder, and instead find a small stand sticking up out of the floor with a simple button like nub on it.Pressing it the floor beneath you lurches and groans before slowly beginning to move downwards with a soft electric humming all the way down. Perhaps it's just your excitement but the elevator takes forever to reach it's destination. You don't have a watch, but you have a feeling it took a good 20 minutes to go all the way down.You talk to Ira on the radio and complain about the long elevator ride until eventually it stops. Walking off the elevator platform you walk into the wall, noting that the walls in this ruin seem different, they're a light blue color, and scrawled with different symbols, lines, and glyph. You can't read any of them, it's almost like they don't mean anything at all.To the west the hallway goes straight, shining your light down it doesn't yield anything noticeable, it seems to go on for quite a ways. The hallway to the east quickly turns into a bend which goes south. Taking a quick peak down it you can't see anything, but you can hear a faint grinding noise which quickly stops.Which way do you wish to go Bass?>[A] To the west.>[B] To the south where you heard the grinding>[C] Other
>>29639752>[A] To the west.
>>29639752>20 min elevator ridedamn loading times.read the symbols.
>>29639752> [A] To the west.Anything familiar about the symbols?
>>29639816wait, didn't see the part about not understanding them.west
>>29639752>[B] To the south where you heard the grindingThe elevator was electric. This has to be something else making that sound. Let's check it out.
>>29639752>>[A] To the west.While keeping an hear out for the noise
>>29639752>[B] Head south and check out the grinding
>>29639857>>29639828>>29639804>>29640007You decide to head west, but keep your ears listening for any grinding. You walk forward a ways till you reach a door. Opening it you step into a large open room with a high ceiling. Immediately upon entering you hear the faint sound of rushing water and look to your left to find the floor drops down into a kind of moat of water. Looking across the room you see another moat, but you can't see the source of the water. To your west is a door and to your south on the eastern wall you can faintly see another door. Outside of that the room looks unusually empty at least it appears that way, it's pretty damn dark so you aren't sure what could be in here.What do you wish to do Bass?
>>29640731Check the water for cleanliness/danger. We can jump into it if necessary later, to avoid large reaverbots of explosions.Keep going west, away from grinding sounds.
>>29640731Head westI prefer the old maps to be honest
>>29640731We have a pole. Use it to gauge the depth of the moats.
>>29640792this allows for more detail, but it might indeed be necessary to have an overmap later.
>>29640731Get your pole out and check the tiles while heading west.
>>29640731Head West young man, head west
>>29640839>>29640834>>29640786You decide it's best to head west, but after seeing the water grow curious about it's cleanliness. Got to have something to jump into to avoid explosions.Taking out your telescopic pole you extent it and get on your stomach, sticking it down into the water to check it's depth. It's a 5 foot drop to the water from the regular floor and from what you can tell the 'moat' is about 10 feet deep. So if the water is gone it'd be a 15 foot drop onto a hard floor.Pulling your pole back up you smell it and note the lack of saltiness, or any smell other then wet for that matter. Running a finger across the pole you dab your mouth with it to taste the water and find that it tastes fine, and is actually fresh water.However the water is murky and you can't see what lies beneath it. You wouldn't want to chance drinking the stuff if necessary, but you feel you won't be melted if you jump into it, though getting your Buster Gun wet might not be the best idea...Keeping your pole out you begin to move forward towards the door while searching for any pressure panels. However half way to the door you hear a splash and the sound of metal colliding with stone.Turning around you look south and in the darkness you see what you can only describe as a metal cyan colored crocodile. Three more jump out of the water and into the darkness in front of you.Quickly you try to remember if you've heard of these Reaverbots...(Roll a Digger Lore check. 1d20+2)

Still you're surrounded, and if you try to run by the Reaverbots they could bite you with their bear trap like jaws.You could try staying mobile, that would make you hard to hit, but it's a little difficult to hit a stationary target while running around.

You stand catching your breath as you look over your kills. The Firushudot that was hit by it's ally's attack sits, smoke coming up from it's full intact body. You can tell the internals are totally destroyed, but it's hull and probably it's refractors are completely intact. Cruiser might be able to make something useful out of this.You turn your head to look over the Firushudot you killed which was totally obliterated by your hit, not even the refractors in it's body survived the explosion. It was a tough fight, but you prevailed! You sit down and catch your breath, relishing your victory...(This is where I'll end things tonight however there is the matter of leveling up and talents to deal with)>Ridiculous Proposition: For some reason you have this odd tendency to make really dumb or unusual ideas seem very plasuble and appealing. Once a session when trying to propose an idea that is seen as ridiculous or foolish to another character, roll 1d20. If the number is odd even you will receive a +10 bonus to all charisma checks regarding that idea for the rest of the day. >Goring Shot: Once a day +1 day per 2 levels you can double the damage of an attack directed at a weakened enemy (as notified by the GM). If the target is destroyed by this attack it's resulting death is so devastating and powerful that it has a chance to stun, berserk, or terrify enemies in the vicinity of the enemy destroyed. However the attack is also so brutal that if the enemy is destroyed by it, all loot and valuables on the target are also destroyed. (continued)
>>29644912Still, the Shining Laser is the best weapon.It just FUCK YOU DIE weapon for Bass to use.

I don't get it, you lost me.
Rolled 6>>29645080For every 2 levels you can use Goring Shot one more time a day. You're level 3 right now. So you can use Goring Shot one more time a day for a total of 2 times. Make sense? >>29644943>Level up!+5 to HP+1 to Craft: (Mechanics) +1 to Lore: (Digger) *this is more you remembering more of what you've already heard then learning more*You may choose to add +1 to one primary stat of your choice.
>>29645099I see.I vote for the Goring Shot. The Weaken Enemy thing can help us put the DAMAGE in bosses.If we hit a weakpoint or make one, is there a multiplication effect on damage?
Rolled 8>>29645133You received both talents, you got them for the critical you rolled involving Cruiser and the Firushudot respectively
>>29645099+1 Agility, but am open to Willpower, Endurance, or Bravery
>>29645099Agility. We need it to dodge attacks and to aim more effectively. We also need LORE(Digger) because the Mechanic job to be the mechanic. We just pick up craft to do patch up jobs in the dudgeon runs and if we get stranded. ALSO CROSSWIRE, if we talk to Cruiser, do we get bonuses in craft rolls if he helps out and we can talk to him?>>29645149Sweet.
>>29644943..I am thinking either melee weapons, armor, or that NEAT cannon they have along with loot money.Strength for the level up though.. goring shot would probably be useful against lots of mooks since hitting a big guy means no loot.
>>29645220A big guy might not die to the GORING SHOT and besides, sometimes, we need to put the hurt on something.But using it on mooks for a PANIC BUTTON to clear out areas and GTFO or move to a better position is also a great way of using it.
>>29645099Crosswire, you may want to update the character sheet with the money we spend and the injuries we healed. We don't got black eyes anymore do we?
Rolled 17>>29645284I'll update the sheet when this thread ends. >>29645197>If we talk to Cruiser, do we get bonuses in craft rolls if he helps out and we can talk to him?To a limited degree I guess. Cruiser is more experienced then you in terms of crafting, plus he has some talents that make things easier/cheaper for him to build. You're better off not wasting points dumping them into crafting and better off focusing on more useful skills for your role on the team. Night everyone.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29631930/
>>29645335Night CrossSo what's everybody thinking? Definitely rank up Lore(Digger). What of Strength vs Agility
>>29645335Thanks for running Crosswire
>>29645520We need agility. A Digger needs to dodge attacks/avoid traps, aim better and to react faster to other stuff like sports or shit.THAT STAT IS 10.It average, noting special or crippling but that shit will not live for long for a digger.We need to be faster, to have better reflexes, to see better, to REACT greater.
>>29645572Yea I hear that but I want to hear what other people have to say
>>29645572All we got to do is circlestrafethen we'll be invincible
>>29645620I think that shit will not work in this quest. Just saying.
>>29645335great, not too late for the level up.I agree with agility, because traps and aim.Strength will be for later, when we're strong enough to risk damage in exchange for taking apart the opponent piece by lucrative piece.
>>29645645Don't know until you try!
>>29645645>rolls a 20Bass has learned circlestrafe! He is now invincible in large rooms!
>>29645672That shit doesn't work anymore man. 20 don't give automatic success.but a 1 still gives a auto failure.
>>29645693I'm joking, really. A perk like that would be way overpowered.
>>29645693But what if Crosswire does it like Cosgrove. It the DC is 15 over what is possible with a 20 plus bonuses then it impossible. We still get a bonuses next time depending on what we were trying to do but at least don't take the auto success away without taking the auto failure away too.
>>29645717And now I am picturing this group of pirates circle strafing Bass. It's the legends version of the jet stream attack.
Shit, I miss the damn quest.Still, Going to vote for Agility and to keep the thread alive. Hopefully to have a discussion on our progression.We need to focus on 5 STATS. STR/END/BRA/WIL/AGL due to being a digger.INT and CHA are our dump stats. We don't need them because we are a digger. Or rather, they are not our focus. If somehow we reach the cap on the rest of the stats, we start leveling them up. We might want to get a Face to get weapons, resources, deals, info. They be our CHA/INT/WIL focus helper. We got a Medic focus on INT/AGL/WIL (IRA) and we got a Mechanic who is focus on INT/STR/END (CRUISER WITH WRESTLING)We the Digger (BASS) are focus on WIL/BRA/STR (It takes balls of steel to be a fucking digger, especially how Bass manage to accomplished this) However We need to improve AGL due to having RANGE weapons rely on the ability to aim which is focus on AGL. AGL also allow us to dodge attacks, traps, get more information due to better senses and react faster like that other anon said. STR will be useful for RECOIL on HEAVY weapons and CHARGE SHOTS. STR don't mean much after that except for CQC, KICKING and MEELE weapons like the DRILL and BLADE ARM. END is also important because we will get hurt and we will suffer. END let us survive attacks and keep on trucking which is important due to the many many life and death battles that Diggers go though.We just need one thing. SKILL for Shooting. For fuck sakes, get books on shooting and shit, go practice, train, get the damn SKILL to get MORE bonuses on shooting shit because that what DIGGERS do. We already got the LORE and CRAFT to survive the shit Diggers go through, now let make sure we can kill reaverbots good.
>>29651099We're well in autosage already.Though I agree, we could use something to help us with shooting, either practicing or getting someone to show us the ropes. We have zero training in how to be a Digger, only what we picked up so far.For the stats, those work fine, though we could give Bass some charisma as well - we did get a perk that allows him to pass on insane ideas as something plausible. Though that might only help us with coming up with plans or something, or convincing others to do what we have in mind.
>>29651668Charisma isn't the kind of guy Bass is. He wants to be the strongest Digger in the world.He just got people who were desperate or had nothing to lose. ISA was desperate and Cruiser had nothing to lose because he going to leave the job he had anyway.Not much on Charisma. Bravery can be use as CHA for inspiring people and shit.What does Bravery does anyway that Will doesn't?
>>29652105Resisting fear and intimidation, I guess. Willpower is how hard you're to influence, Bravery is not to flee when a reaverbot made from humans comes at you.
>>29652237Also Pain. Remember the torture scene from Red that we got the +4 bonus due to 18 WIL but that just will power so that falls under "Influence" or shit.
>>29652272Yeah, that too. Looking over our stats, we're one hot-blooded digger who's afraid of fish.Ah, crap, the boss in the tower is going to be a giant fish reaverbot.
