>We Foolz now:>https://archive.foolz.us/tg/search/subject/Loli%20S.T.A.L.K.E.R./>I also have a Twitter for updates, @Loli_KaleunScavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Lolis, Killers, Explorers, Robbers.YOU ARE LOLI,and you're staring down a monster. The thing is huge, at least as tall as your tank and just as wide. The only way you can describe it is a giant face on legs. Its entire torso as far as you can tell consisting of a massive, deformed face with a twisted mouth filled with far too many shark teeth for you liking, stands on two legs thick enough that you probably couldn't reach your arms around them.It breaths steadily, its entire mass moving up and down as it sucks in air before growling it back out again. In response, you barely dare to breath at all, chest slowly rising as you let the air fill you as naturally as you can. The two of you stay like this, unmoving, as the clouds move away from the Moon to let its light fall through the ruined doorways to illuminate the scene, glinting dully from the scratches in the tank's paintwork and reflecting brilliantly from the beast's huge eyes.Your sense of time starts to reassert itself at last, and you realize it's not going to be long before one of your allies makes some stupid move to break this stalemate. You'd probably better be the one to do so first.[ ]Take the initiative, attack![ ]Approach it. Slowly. Let it know you're friendly.[ ]Stay perfectly still, don't break the stalemate.[ ]Slowly step away from the monster, get outside.[ ]Run away.[ ]Other.
>>31489176[X]Stay perfectly still, don't break the stalemate.
>>31489176>[ x ]Approach it. Slowly. Let it know you're friendly.what could go wrong?
>>31489176>[ ]Slowly step away from the monster, get outside.>>31489247everything
>>31489176>[ ]Approach it. Slowly. Let it know you're friendly.WE MUST RIDE IT!
>>31489369I don't know whether to trust you or be paranoid...
>>31489398Its me.So both.
>>31489176[x]Jump on it's head and ride it like a pony.
>>31489176You take a single step towards it, carefully. Every iota of your conscious mind focused on making this the smoothest step you have ever taken. The monster growls, its knees shifting slightly to tense its muscles, ready for instant release.[ ]Take another step.[ ]Stop.[ ]Step back.
>>31489550Yeah, that one was me. All Quiet on the Tripstern Front.
>>31489550Kaleun told me the options. I cant vote. That Evil bastard.
>>31489604hahahaWhats the best, come on, you can tell us super secret he can't read spoilers
>>31489550You stop in your tracks, eyes still locked with the monster across from you. After three heartbeats pass (and they're easy to hear with how loud they're pulsing through your whole body), it brings its foot up from the floor and swings its body around to face you properly. It places its foot down gently enough that it almost doesn't cause the earth to shake underfoot, then takes another pace towards you. And another. It's almost within arm's reach of you now.[ ]Try to pet it.[ ]Stay perfectly still.[ ]NOPE the Hell out of here.
>>31489681>[ ]Try to pet it.try to pet somewhere thats not near its teeth (if such a place on it exists)this is so going to end horribly
>>31489681>[ ]Try to pet it.go extra slow, let him come to you, no fast moves
>>31489620>>31489681>[ ]Stay perfectly still.THEN>[ ]Try to pet it.

>>31489681>>31489709 heremodifying mine to >>31489713 lets not scare it
>>31489681You reach out your hand, palm open towards its face, letting it smell you, letting it adapt to your movements. As it breaths in your scent, you move to touch its leathery skin-[DC18 What could go wrong? check]
Rolled 1>>31489773This is what happens when I don't check my twitter for an hour, isn't it? Well, here goes.
Rolled 10>>31489773Oh look, another 16+ DC! I wonder what's going to happen!
>>31489794Haha, time for fun!
>So I've been told that I should quote link the responses that I'm following, as well as/opposed to quoting my previous update. Or at least indicate which option was chosen. To make the story easier to follow.>Is this a thing people want?
Rolled 4>>31489773>[DC18 What could go wrong? check]oh ffs
>>31489794I'm rejoiced you have joined us anons. And I'm not even being sarcastic.
Rolled 19>>31489811yes>>31489794welp, quest over, don't worry about telling us the winning/chosen vote anymore HK, that guy just killed us
>>31489794AAAAAAAHHHHHH well, it never really bothered me, but that sounds like a good idea
Rolled 1>>31489794I am seriously hoping that a high roll would mean 'lots could go wrong' and a low roll means nothing goes wrong>>31489800oh gee I wonder, of course we fail it anon, the only times we don't are when we pull a 20 out of our ass and thats fucking rare
>>31489836Anon please, I didn't vote for suicide.
>>31489773>>31489794The beast finishes sniffing your fingers, before tilting its head forward to slip your hand inside its mouth. Then the rows of shark teeth shut around your wrist. Hard.[DC14 OH GOD IT HURTS! check]
>>31489857It doesn't help Kaleun can't into difficulty check. I can literally see it...>I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing, but I'm going to use mechanics anyway!

>>31489885>>Wants to make a pet of the biggest, meanest mutant in the Zone.>>Wants more than a 34.7% chance of success.>>For reasons.>Uh huh, sure.
>>31489952I feel for you bro.
>>31489880Before you can even register what's happening, the beast lifts you into the air by your wrist, then jerks its neck to fling you side to side. You can feel the flesh of your arm stretching, ready to separate but miraculously, your bone keeps your arm attached. Gritting your teeth as hard as you can, you let your entire body fall limp and don't utter a sound as you're jerked through the air like a rag doll. Screaming now would only reward it, like a dog with a squeaky chew-toy.After a few more swings through the air, your motion is thankfully stopped as it lets you slowly down until your feet are resting on the floor.The it goes for a run.You're dragged, flailing behind the monstrosity as it tears its way out through the door frame, blasting a chunk of the plaster away with it as it passes and bounding out into the moonlight night. It's all you can do to keep yourself upright as it runs, desperately trying to run as fast as you can to keep pace with your own arm.After what feels like a lifetime of horrific pain, though is likely less than a minute, the giant suddenly comes to a complete stop. It's so sudden that you fly past it, almost tearing your own arm off as it pulls you to a stop as well.Stood before you, spotlighted by a beam of moonlight, the young boy who gave you the box of chocolates all that time ago stands, one hand behind his back, the other waving to you, a shy smile on his face. Transfixed with the new being, the giant dumbly lets go of your arm as its jaws go slack. It takes a step forward, then another. Then bursts into a full charge towards the boy.He doesn't move. He hasn't even taken his eyes off you, let alone readied himself to avoid the monster. He's moments from death. You're unable to do anything but watch, horrified, as it bears down on him. In your helplessness, you do the only thing you can. You scream.
Rolled 14>>31490173>Chocolateshota saves usHe is the physical manifestation of the Wish Granter isn't he...
>>31489952It's not just this one you illiterate faggot, every single time you make us roll it's some stupidly high check. And then you have to backpedal with this threshold shit because we would be dead at least 15-20 times by now.
>>31489811Yes to all that, and also add>[Cont]or>[1/?]to your updates if they are multipart, lets us know more is coming
>>31490173Wait what. Where's the horse and shining armor, Kaleun? Are you sure he can save us without that?
>>31490173The moment the monster hits, mouth wide ready to swallow him, the light around him evaporates as the clouds suddenly cover the Moon. For a fraction of a second before your eyes can adjust, the world is pitch black.When your vision returns, the boy is nowhere to be seen. The giant, stood exactly where he was, is thrashing about in a rage, searching everywhere around it. But there is no sign that he was ever there at all.A warm trickle of blood running down your left hand gives you a gentle reminder that you probably need some first aid very soon.[ ]Stay where you are.[ ]Quickly hide nearby.[ ]Run while you have the chance.
>>31490256>[ ]Run while you have the chance.Back to Yanov, go cry and hug Vasa and Kris and hopefully interrupt their makeup sex
>>31490256>[ ]Run while you have the chance. say, do we have some nades left?
>>31490256>[ ]Run while you have the chance.Get the fuck out. If it pursues, alert EVERYONE. We have decent firepower and we're not locked in close quarters, we totally have a chance. Sort of.
>>31490277Oh no. No no, we're not telling anyone what we just did. Nope. Bad enough that Shota saw us in such an embarrassing situation. How can he respect us after something like that?
>>31490305uhh its in a cage anon, how could it pursue?
>>31490345Actually he's in a rage, not a cage. Wishful thinking is a cool thing though.
>>31490344well we kin of need first aid and they know how to give itand its not like Loli is afraid of being embarrassed at this point
>>31490240Whoa bro. Gettin' heated. Chill out. If you are complaining about the high difficulty checks, I am on Kaleun's side here. A little girl trying to tame a gigantic predatory mutant beast, is a lot more difficult that taming a Dog or something. And if you are angry abut the back pedaling to the pain threshold (giving us a second chance ) I see no real problem there either. But I can see, how you can view it as him giving us a high DC that he expects us to fail, and then giving us another DC that we can pass but will ultimately leave us in a still worse off/bad position, as kinda .... backwards intuitive or unfair way of him limiting us, but still if you don't like it you could always just leave the thread, if you are getting angry don't stay here, bro.
>>31490364derp, maybe I should go to bed so I can actually read properly...
>>31490256>[X] Run while you have a chanceas quietly as you can, gotta warn the others about this monster
>>31490256>[x]Run while you have the chance.While the thing is still roaring in anger and confusion, you take the chance to break into a run directly away from it back in the direction you came. Luckily, it seems to have completely lost interest in you and lets you flee.You keep running hard, making it halfway back to the station before your legs and lungs finally overwhelm you with their protests, and you trip, tumbling to a sprawl on the ground where you rest for a long time, just trying to catch your breath."Tha-that was a close one, Loli." The little blond boy appears in the edge of your vision, hovering above you. "P-please... be more c-careful in the future. I-", he fidgets nervously, playing with his own fingers, "I might not be here next time." And then he's gone. You want to make an effort to follow him, at least with your eyes, but your entire body protests that you should just stay perfectly still and rest here.Several minutes pass before you can finally pull yourself upright into a sitting position.You're in a field, almost a quarter mile from the station, in near total darkness. You're exhausted and bleeding, and as you sit, you can hear the wildlife of the Zone going about life around you.[ ]Stay here.[ ]Try to find somewhere to hide for the night.[ ]Try to make it back to the station.[ ]Other.
>>31490621>[ ]Other.i'm pretty sure we "know" basic first aid so..., it might be worth a shot to at least try to stop the bleeding.i'm no expert, but i'm pretty sure blood always attracts bad things
>>31490621How much of our gear do we have on us? Did we grab all of it?
>>31490621>[ ]Try to make it back to the station.The monster might go back to the station and V&K are relying on us to keep watch. We can't do that from here so we have to go back!
>Delay inbound while I deal with this emergency.>Then I'm driving home.
>>31490621do >>31490658 tear some of our clothes to make bandages if we have to, then do>[ ]Try to make it back to the station.Seriously Viktor and Ice, why do we let you live if your going to fall asleep on watch and let this happen?
>>31490621[X]Try to make it back to the station.
>>31490658>>31490733Kris totally taught us basic principles like "that shit's bleeding, wrap something around it to make it bleed less" and "that bullet doesn't belong there, take it out." And to fair to the guys, even if one of them was on watch, they may not have actually noticed seeing as both we and the giant somehow managed to make very little noise and were inside the station.
>>31491238they missed the giant not 5 meters from the tank?
>>31491289Well, didn't the giant come from the other side of the station? Doesn't matter how far anything is from you if there's a building in the way you still can't see it.
>Alright, back at a PC.>>31490684>Unless otherwise specified, I generally assume you're always carrying all your gear. You even put your pack on whenever you're not asleep.>>31490658>>31490733>Your pack has a first aid kit. I was seriously starting to doubt if you guys would ever need to use it at this rate.>Writing.
>>31491339It was standing in the 'door' the T-64BV conveniently made for it at the Battle for Yanov Station (TM)Last thread HK said we could see the tank behind the giant through the door.I don't know what Viktor and Ice were doing, but they are not getting any chocolate for breakfast anymore.
>>31491481Oh. Well shit, then they either weren't on watch at all or someone decided to ignore it.
>>31491523Like I said, no chocolate for them, more for us and Kris and Vasa-neechan
>>31490621>[x]Stop the bleeding.You pull the cargo pack off your back, easing it over your maimed left hand, then opening it to rummage inside for the First Aid kit you're sure you bought a couple weeks back. You find it relatively quickly once you start digging further down, and crack it open to find a small collection of basic medical supplies. There's a few gauze sponges and a reel of bandage, so you do your best to press the ragged tooth wounds closed and stem the bleeding. The wrapping isn't exactly neat, but it seems to slow the flow enough for now. A few cuts of sticky tape keep the bandage in place after you let off the pressure.When you're finished, you close the kit and drop it bag in your bag, slinging it back onto one shoulder as you push yourself upright. You're about to start making your way back to the station when the ambient crickets in your immediate vicinity suddenly go deathly silent, and the brush a few meters away starts gently rustling.[ ]Investigate.[ ]Wait to see what it is.[ ]Shoot it.[ ]Flee.
>>31491698>[ ]Flee.FUCK YOU TOO ZONE
>>31491698call "doggy?"flee if it's anything but him
>>31491698>>31491743 herechanging my vote to >>31491758
>>31491698>[ ]Wait to see what it is.We can't outrun a lot of zone predators anyway I think, so be still and ready to shoot if it doesn't go away.
So Shota is clearly a vampire. He only appears at night, he is exceptionally shy, and practically disappeared in a fraction of a second. Vampire.
>>31491847So, a Bloodsucker?
>>31491890 loli is probably too young for that
>>31491890That's what I just said! A vampire!
>>31491890oh fuckhe's the bloodsucker who killed Ice's squad and nearly killed us isn't he?he tasted our little knife demon blood and fell in love
>>31491698[x]Call "doggy?"You curb your immediate impulse to flee blindly into the darkness again, just long enough to quietly call out to the bush: "Doggy? Is that you?"In response, you hear a happy bark and Doggy hops out through the bush, loping over to you and jumping up to lick your face. He hops happily on his back legs as you nuzzle into his face, scratching behind his ears and giggling as he licks you. He drops down after a few more licks, circles around you once, then sniffs inquisitively at your bandaged hand, before growling menacingly and spinning to face off in the direction you came from, as if ready to spring to the hunt.[ ]Calm Doggy down, take him back to the station.[ ]Encourage Doggy.
>>31491954>[ ]Calm Doggy down, take him back to the station.too risky and we were supposed to watch the camp
>>31491954>[ ]Calm Doggy down, take him back to the station.Lets get our hand properly treated and get back to safety for now, we can go hunting in the morning with out TANK if we want to
>>31491954>[ ]Calm Doggy down, take him back to the station.Doggy can't take on a pseudogiant alone, that's insane.>Nibbler isn't with himFuck.>>31491918Yes. The loli blood turned him into an adorable shota.
>>31491954[x]Calm Doggy down, take him back to the station.You wrap both arms around Doggy, pulling him back. "No, Doggy, no! Leave it!" He tilts his head, whining quizzically at you. You shake your head authoritatively at him, and he ducks his head, apparently giving in to your request to pursue this no further. You let go and stand up straight, turning to head back to the station. Doggy falls in at your heel, making sure to stay within reach to support you if you need it.You thank him by gently mussing between his ears as you walk, but you don't need the help.You're almost back when you realize your pocket has been vibrating at you for some time. You pull your PDA out to find you're getting a call from Ice. You answer it, bringing it to your ear."Jesus Christ, girl, answer your phone when someone's calling you! Where are you? You alright? You dead?" As he's finishing his tirade, you step onto the ridge of the hillock overlooking the station. Below you, all the lights in the station are lit, as well as the headlights of the tank on the opposite side of the building. The tank's engine is rumbling, ready to go, and you can see Ice standing inside the entrance, holding his phone up to his ear.>How do you respond?
>>31492292"HI Ice! No I'm not dead, but a giant unfriendly version of doggy tried to make me dead but then the mysterious little boy who gave me chocolate saved me and I found doggy again and your not getting any chocolate for breakfast, also, I might need first aid."
>>31492292"uhh, I think you should turn out all those lights otherwise the monster might come back"
>>31492322 hereadd >>31492361 into it too
>>31492292>>31492322>>31492361You decide to interrupt his one-way conversation with your own. "Hi Ice! I'm not dead, but there was a giant thing eating the bodies and it tried to eat me too before playing with my like a toy, then we went for a run which kind of really hurt. The boy who gave me chocolate then appeared and saved me but disappeared afterwards. Then I found Doggy again. Oh, and you're not getting any chocolate for breakfast. Also, I might need first aid."The stream of information shocks him into silence for a few moments, before he weakly replies. "Right, well. How far out are you? We've got the tank ready to come help you out right now.""No, that's okay. I'm almost back now. Uhh, do you think maybe you should switch those lights off now? Just in case the monster comes back?"You see him press the phone to his chest while waving to someone with his other hand and shouting something. All the lights shut off at once, followed a moment later by the tank headlights and engine. "Okay. A heads up, Kris is looking pissed. Expect some flak when you get here. See you soon."He takes the phone away from his ear and your line goes dead.[Part 31 End]
>>31492619Aww, so short. Oh well, gotta take what you can get, right?
>>31492619Oh... bit of a short thread, huh?
And that's it for now. I'm going to try to get another thread in on Thursday night, though my schedule isn't looking helpful. I'll also be away from any PC's from Friday to Tuesday. I'll try to find a way to make up for all these short threads some time in the future.As always, thread is open and I'll be lingering for Q&A and discussions.Thanks for the thread, folks!
>>31492697Here's a question. Is Shota a vampire?
>>31492697Thanks for running Kaleun!
>>31492735Whether or not he's human is up for debate.
>>31492697Thanks for the thread HK, cya next time, and don't get yourself gassed.>>31492787well to be fair, whether Loli is human is also up for debate
>>31492735>twilight: loli in the zone edition >>31492697thanks for running i'm pretty sure that troll was all like "all according to the plan"
>>31492697How much do you make up and exaggerate on your Twitter? Not trying to start shit, I just have a really tough time believing how often you say you nearly die or burn yourself. Though, I am pretty well convinced your finger was actually broken that one time you ran, so maybe you just don't know how to take care of yourself?
>>31492965Uh... the one about... let's see.This one here, about how one wrong calculation would be all it takes to cause an explosion.That one's exaggerated. Because I always triple-check my calculations from the base up.So I'd need to get three calculations wrong in the same way to blow shit up.And yeah, I often make the same mistake 3 times in my calculations.
>>31493082so wear three hazmat suits
>>31492821Loli is completely normal in the biological sense. The only difference is that she's crazy enough to make everyone and everything around her doubt that fact, resulting in the laws of reality being conveniently stretched in order to accommodate her madness. Essentially, she's unintentionally bluffing the Zone.For example, the pseudogiant should by all means have torn her arm right off with that bite, but then the Zone stopped to wonder "wait, is that how it works" so the laws of reality temporarily and very locally stopped applying because the Zone couldn't figure out what to do about it.
>>31493140Triple hazmat beats double hazards? Sounds legit
