Rolled 72 (1d100)Sergeant Grift leads as your men charge into the vehicle bay, all firing their weapons at whatever is out of sight above the external doors. Or he did lead the charge, until he was yanked up into the ceiling by a nearly invisible thread. Then you heard the screaming, so much more intense for happening close by. So that's where whatever grabbed that guy in the hallway went. “Fuck, Lurkers inside! Aww goddammit, and these motherfuckers have power armor too?? Goddammit, what the fuck even is this place!”“Unidentified citizen, do not fear us we will rescue you from these monsters!”“Fuck you buddy, you really think we're gonna fall for that shit?”“...Yes?”“Ain't been around here for long have you?”Welcome to the Post Apoc Civ Quest.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>41267162Before their conversation could continue a vaguely humanoid form fell from the ceiling with its neck at an unnatural angle. Then another one came down and started trying to scurry out towards the external doors, ignoring the fur-clad men and your soldiers both. That was when you realized it wasn't the Sergeant that was screaming."Fffuuucckkk!!! Didjoo tink I'd go down that easy??!! FUCK YOU!" The Sergeant's power-armored bulk crashed down onto the fleeing Lurker, creating a small crater in the hangar floor and misting all the surroundings with gristle and blood."HAHA, this is some FINE bloody fucking sport you've got you fur-clad savages.

Rolled 41 (1d100)Oof. This thread is almost as cold as your freezing mountainous island.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>41267509Dang, might have to wait till the weekend to do this. I've been looking forward to round 2.Well here's my suggestions>H. Interrogate our prisoners (do we have anywhere to even keep them?)>A. Explore research labs
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>41270059Currently you do not, as normally you'd use your containment facilities for that. You're perfectly capable of temporarily restraining them with rope, tossing them into a hab unit, and locking the door though.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>41270195Guess that'll have to do.So there's something horrible in the containment unit when it was supposed to be empty, tunnels leading off from the generator room, and we still need to figure out our exact situation as far as food and water is concerned.On second thought, I want to change interrogating the prisoners to>A. Scavenge for food.(and the second action was supposed to be >F, sorry)Unless you're already writing it, or they want to volunteer some information.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>41270373Vote
>>41267509Interrorgate prisoners, and make the research crew add que to their jobs to dissect these lurkers.and repair that door with engineers. Keep personnel on high alert, there seems to be more.
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>41270373>>41271043Your food and water situation is stable, actually. You'll have reduced food reserves when you fully take over the base due to the damage to the farms, but for now the time scale is too compact for anyone to starve to death or anything.
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>41267509sorry im late, buddy friend. super busy day man. seriously, we need to achieve dominance of our imediate surroundings, PRIORITY ONE. food and long term supplies wont mean shit if your gutted in your sleep.- Detain our new "guests" and inform them there safe, and if they want to stay that way. shuit up and obey for now.- explore further towards potentially hostile areas of base.
>>41271116Right.Let me see, what was the action plan anon had last thread?>My suggestion for midterm goals is a focus on the medical bay and the armory, which will give us weapons to fight any potential trespassers to our vault, and medecine to heal afterward. We'll secure key locations with checkpoints and barricades manned by personnel told to make regular status checks, and if possible given deadman switches that will alert us if a patrol has suddenly been killed.>Once we've fortified these locations, and when we've stockpiled on medecine and weapons, we'll move on to take the more important facilities of the hyrpdoponics for food and the power hub and vehicle bay. We'll save the bulkhead for last.
>>41271116So our hydroponics are active?
>>41271126Actually I would like to follow >>41271152 outline and secure our current holdings, then move out. I believe last thread we found a MYSTERIOUS hole torn into the wall and we ought to have set up some patrols and barricades around there first.Maybe then we send in expeditions, but would be nice to develop some scouting drones.
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>41271152To that end, I voteAction 1 - Interrogate the prisonersAction 2 - Set up defensive barricades and basic patrols around our current holdings, the Science Bay, the Armory, and I believe we took over some of the Hydroponics as well.Generally follow >>41271152Next turn we should explore the bulkheads, or develop drones to do so.
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>41271212Switching my vote to this.

i dont care enough to argue. but you lot are being slightly over cautious. regardless drones wont be for awhile. our manufacturing and design systems are NOT currently under control.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>41271159Yes, the only reason your food, water, and medicine stats are unknown is because the Lockdown means you don't have access to the automated systems that monitor such things. You could manually tally it up, or you could shut down the lockdown from the Sechub.
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>41271269That's true. Surely we can at least spend one turn making basic watches right? We have a lot of ground to take care of, and more to follow.We should really keep exploring though.>>41271126This. Because it's better to know what could attack you, than preparing for the unknown.

Rolled 25 (1d100)>>41271364>Interrogate the prisonersThe prisoners prove to be remarkably resilient to your questions not a single one of them cracks under your intense barrage, you didn't even get any names.In fact most of them were laughing and spitting at your interrogators by the time you were done, and many of your members now know more euphemisms for having intercourse with various beings than they had imagined existed.>Set up basic barricades and patrolsBarricades have been set up at several key points throughout the base. Someone even had the smart idea of looking into the available files in the SecHub, so once you get the security systems back online they'll be even tougher.Patrols have been dispatched around all your holdings, and everyone feels much more secure for it.

Rolled 63 (1d100)>>41271953Your Sergeant and a cadre of your most elite troops all stood lined up inside the Security Hub, weapons all leveled at the bulkhead that held back god knows what horrors. Sergeant Grift himself was holding two of the assault rifles you had taken from your prisoners and no less than 6 armatures were deployed from his armor and pointing various obscure, but threatening looking devices at the door. In fact, the greater portion of the firepower your entire civilization could mustered was all pointed at the armored gateway. The sniffling continues from the other side.“Alright, do it.”The tech expert that'd been bullied into being the one to shut down the lockdown paused for a moment to gulp down his nervousness, and then keyed in the shutdown sequence. There was a brief blip of acknowledgment from the console, and then it switched over to a blue screen with a progress bar ticking across it.“Okay sir, it's done. 10 minutes until we have control again. The bulkheads should switch to automatic motion-sensor opening shortly.”“Alright. Pack up into the armory for a while, I'll leave two guys here to keep you safe.”“Sir.”As if sensing the change, the snuffling on the other side of the door intensified. Something like pawing or scratching at the door could be heard.Your troops, for their part, remained remarkably steady. You could scarcely hear them tightening their grips on their weapons, and even the Sergeant was proud of their fire discipline as the door raised to reveal what was on the other side.----Meanwhile in the Vehicle Bay your patrols continue as scheduled, but with the external doors closed (or as closed as they get now. Fucking bastard intruders did a number on them)."Hey Graham.""Yeah, what?""Did that big door and open hallway used to be there?""Uhh, no. What the fuck?""Huh.">NoticeUnknown tunnel has opened at the southern corner of the vehicle bay.(Cont.)

You heard the orders.""But Sarge...it just looks like a dog.""Fuck...I know."In front of your squad stood a short, stocky sort of quadruped creature. It did indeed look in all respects like a dog, and had the friendly mannerisms of one. Except for the head, currently tilted slightly to one side in a curious gesture, which appeared exactly like that of a Lurker. Complete with a dragging, semi-transparent tongue that trailed on the ground behind it for several meters."I'll phone it into command.">What do?-Kill it! Rip and Tear!-Capture it and restrain it!

Well fuck yeah I feel better about this now. You ready?”“Yep, let's head on in.”And so they did, for about 50 meters when the tunnel suddenly became a neat, tidy, and well lit corridor. Shit, it doesn't even have any dust in it like the rest of the base. “Hey Engi, sir.

Anyway got a ration bar?""I do Sarge.""Alright, well give it a go Serena."One of your troops stepped forward from the line holding a brown brick in half-undone foilwrap in one hand and lifting it towards the dog. While any human would've rightfully staggered back from the half-ton of armor whether it was acting friendly or not, the "dog-lurker" stood its ground. Flicking its long tongue through the air around the ration bar as if trying to determine if this was a trick or not.After a few moments of this the creature stepped forward, wrapped a length of its tongue around the bar, and promptly turned around and ran back a few meters. A few disgusting swallowing noises could be heard, and the entire length of tongue retracted into the creature's head.Then the creature was suddenly gone and replaced by something that was most definitely NOT a dog. NOT A DOG AT ALL, FUCK. OH FUCK, THERE'S LIKE TWO DOZEN OF THOSE THINGS THERE. AND WHEN DID THE CORRIDOR BECOME DARK AND FULL OF GASHES AND IMMENSELY DAMAGED??>Alert!-Scuffles and moans near the Vehicle Bay have gone quiet.
>>41272957This still could have been alot worse. Could have ended up like that guy in Jurassic world.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>41272957The first creature turned back to look at your line of troops who were still remarkably steady even while their dumbstruck-ness made itself known through the cold metal-ceramic composites of their armor. Behind your line of troops a horrified scream erupted momentarily as the Tech peaked around the corner, before he was quickly grabbed and muffled by one of your men.The creatures all seemed to focus on the Tech for a moment, and drool issued from their fanged maws. Then with an eerie silence they turned around in unison and marched down the damaged corridor, continuing straight out of the base instead of turning towards the containment units. A few moments later at least 3 dozen more of the creatures emerged from the hallway to Containment, and marched out after the rest.As the last one passed out of sight behind a bulkhead down your exit corridor all of your troops breathed an immense sigh of relief.>What do?-Pause a moment and catch your breath.-Advance after the critters.-Advance and secure Containment...assess the damage. (Would you like troops to press in from the Vehicle Bay?)-FUCK IT, CONTAINMENT'S LOST. THIS IS OUR ENTRANCE NOW.
>>41273011If we had a scientist hero we could have studied the behavior of these creatures.I don't like that they've damaged the hallways, but let's see what else they do. Worse comes to worse, we were bound to rip and tear, but I'll still hold onto the slim chance of domesticating mutant guard dogs.>>41273066Note to self. Do not act like food. That was clearly a response instinct.I vote>Calm down, observeTHEN>Advance and assess damage (ONLY SUITS - NO HUMANS)
>>41273066...i want to kill something soo badly right now, my murder boner is COMPLETELY disappointing in the lack of meaningful trap here.....rip and tear = rescinded. new orders, secure containment, no humans, no reinforcements. note: these dogs clearly seem to possess mind altering illusional powers, its explains alot. PSY-DOGS discovered.
I believe we are dealing with an instinctual, pack like creatures here. These lurkers? if that's what they're called.My suspicions are:-They are not unfamiliar with hunting humans or live prey, as evidenced by the instinctual drooling when hearing the techie scream-They act in packs, as evidenced by their group behavior-They are capable of recognizing threat and not-threat, as evidenced when one did not immediately attack our power armored soldiers, and passed by, even though they detected motionThey are very ugly, but if you look at it, I think you can almost treat them like a pack of wild dogs.Wild dogs who are ugly as sin, could swallow a human whole, and are burrowing through the damn vault.Still, I would like to say that while the simplest option would be to just start killing them, we don't know the extent of their numbers, and personallyMutant Guard Dogs would be fucking cool.I suggest we observe and get as much info, so if we do want to start killing we know how.
>>41273172You might have a point. One clearly tried to appear like a dog, maybe because it ate one and used its DNA? Or read the thoughts of our people and tried to mimic a dog?>>41273066Have our human troopers move back, and move up more suit armor. Can't let them smell fresh meat.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>41273209Whatever these creatures are, they aren't lurkers. Though one did seem to have a Lurker's head for a few minutes. Pic related is approximately a Lurker. Though they have a large additional maw in the middle of their bodies that's capable of eating a man in 2-4 bites. You'll find out more if you autopsy your available corpses.
I also think they might have made their nest in the containment unit, and what we just observed was them going out to hunt in packs.>>41273122Actually, change my vote to-Pause a moment and catch your breath-Wait for them to returnWe'll want to move in when they're at the nest, so we can do further study, or at least have them all in one place rather than in place(s) we don't know
>>41273317Yeah, it will be easier to kill them all in one spot than running around chasing after them.
remember how our perception of the animals, the room, and even there pack as a whole changed sharply once IT decided we weren't a threat, clearly mind altering of some sort. there is no chance in hell, im domesticating a beast, DOUBLE no TRIPLY so if its has even the smallest potential to have psyonic potential. (something WELL within probability considering the setting were in)
>>41273317He has a point, whether we try to "domesticate" these things or kill them, it's best that we do it when they're all at their nest.Let's wait for them to come back.
i say if they return, and they play nice let em be NEIGHBORS, if they try to force there way in, kill em dead. Live and let live is the best youll get from me.
>>41273354>>41273209>>41273122Yall thinking too much; hold our ground and leave a box of snacks by the door.Security measures will kick in soon.
>>41273392I want to make regular approaches with them in our power armor bringing food, until they associate our armor as friendly.Maybe if we play our cards right we can figure out a way to lure them out of the base and into a cave outside or something. Get rid of them, have guard dogs who won't attack power armor somewhere nearby as convenient natural defense from our enemies, and we get our base back.Granted, that's the long way around.
>>41273419Let's just not leave snacks by the door, then they'll start snooping around our territory. Yeah, when the defenses kicked in, we'll see what happens.
>>41273066Secure Containment, troops in the vehicle bay sit tight for now.
note: im assuming the path left is an exit from the facility of sorts, much like the vehicle bay doors. (which we should really get to defending/repairing asap.)>>41273430if they are actually still in teh facility , maybe. but id remind you as long as there around, we cant trust our eyes or ears 100%. crappy trade off for a guard dog.

Blood, gore, sinew, bone, and generally every sort of bodily fluid you could imagine (and a few none of them had) painted the walls. What wasn't expected were the several dozen severed Lurker heads arranged in three semicircular rows staring at your troops as soon as the bulkhead opened. The tongues lied on the ground and between the heads in a pattern that could've almost been a spiderweb if there hadn't been something disturbingly...off about it. It wasn't until one of your soldiers accidentally stepped on one of the cords that they realized what was wrong.Those tongues weren't coming out of the heads.The cords immediately all seized up and wrapped around the unfortunate trooper in a net, and there was scarcely time for a scream before the net constricted on her and she was dragged around a corner into a busted open containment cell."SHIIIIII-"A series of loud clangs and thumps ring out from the containment unit, then the sound of sheering metal and the firing of a rifle.

Rolled 75 (1d100)>>41274095"FINALLY SOme aCTION!! FUCK THAT THING UP, CHARGE!!!"And so they did, a full fireteam rounding the corner and drawing weapons down just in time to see an unholy half-lobster half-spider splayed redolent and fat atop a mound of half eaten corpses of all sorts. It is at least double the size of your power-armored soldier, and is rapidly beating its unfortunate victim into the ground with rapid staccato strikes from 3 of its spiked limbs.It doesn't even seem to be straining itself.Your trooper for her part seems to be trying to retaliate but between being encased in a net and the spider physically embedding her armor into the metal floor with the force every strike...she is having very limited success. True to their training, and the auto-assists incorporated into their power armor your troopers brace themselves against the floor and open up onto the monster. They scarcely notice as their heels crunch down onto several more translucent cords.They are all jerked separate directions and the electronic tinged screams of your troops emerges from four more containment cells, and soon thereafter 4 more staccato beats begin as metal tears and screeches.

If you'd actually like to properly question them under pressure or use 'enhanced interrogation techniques' then you'll need to devote an action to it.If you decide on the latter it would be helpful if you had some specific sets/types of information in mind (identify some of the monsters you've seen, #s and strength of their faction, local area terrain, etc.).

Rolled 80 (1d100)>>41278594I would vote to integrate them and maybe create like a light scout type of troop with them. Maybe some cloaking?
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>41278867You know that cloaking technology exists, but you don't currently have access to any. You could try researching in that direction, but you'd probably have an easier time of it if you found a cloak to study first.As for integrating them into your forces...your forces wouldn't really like that. They said some /really/ nasty things about your forefathers and foremothers when you interrogated them earlier. A few of your military men are still curled in their bunks crying.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>41278594I vote>Repair/Defend Vehicle bay doors>Autopsy Spider Corpses
>>41278594>>41278977Talk to the "savages""Gentlemen, perhaps we've gotten off on the wrong foot.When the last thing you've known is a world that existed centuries? maybe millennial ago? you tend to lose your sense of time.We'd like to know more about you. And about your people. If we didn't care, we wouldn't have fought off those. . .giant spider things? from you, or took you to our base otherwise.You and yours stand to benefit a lot here if we might just get on better terms."

What's worse is that it's you fucking bastards what made the world like this.So fuck off with your benefits and better terms, I hope the Murderkrabs infest your base and leave you all empty withered husks."
>>41279629Could you post your twotter account?
>>41279629We could always let them go right? Will they attack us or? I dunno
>>41279629"Do you like scraping and struggling even? Didn't you investigate this base for supplies, food, weapons and so on?"
>>41279692Their a liability either way, if we let them go they'll tell their friends what they know. If we let them stay, their friends are probably gonna come back for them anyway.
>>41279717Still, it's better to talk to grateful mobs than hateful ones
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>41279629You receive similar responses from all of your prisoners, none are willing to tell you anything about themselves or their faction. You have some limited success when you describe the monsters you've encountered thus far though. Particularly when you describe the dog-creatures a few emit gasps of surprise and become slightly more pliable to your questions.The dog creatures are evidently called "Mutemutts" and are rarely seen on the surface, but when they are they're usually taking down some huge prey item. They're extremely intelligent, very vicious, ridiculously resilient, and are able to affect men's minds to various degrees. They rove around in bands of about 50 constantly staying on the move, never staying in any nest for more than a day or two.Lurkers are something like a species of vermin of the area. Reproduction by eggs, twice as strong as a man, ambush predators that use their tongues as a lure for other monsters or a snare for humans. Occasionally they'll take a human alive and cocoon them to use their body heat as an incubator for their eggs. If they manage to get inside a naturally warm area their population explodes as they don't need incubators.The spider-lobster things are called Murderkrabs, and there are several different strains of them. The ones you encountered seem to be one of the least dangerous, as they're mostly stationary except when they have to reset their snare-webs. They all feature 8 powerful, spiked limbs that they can use to tear prey items to bits or climb to unexpected locations and lay in ambush.
>>41279782"Sounds like a dangerous world. I'm betting since you know of us remnants you've found other bases, or at least more of them.I'm also betting if you haven't already established yourself in one of the bunkers, you're looking to are you not?"
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>41279692You could let them go if you like, though you'd have to disarm them first to ensure they didn't attack you. From what you've seen and what they've let slip of the surface it might be kinder to just kill them rather than let them loose unarmed.>>41279703"No one likes scraping and struggling, what the fuck sort of dumbass question even is that? But the struggle makes us strong, makes us adapt. You fucking remnants stay in your bunkers, you clad yourselves in your suits of metal and servomotors to fight back the monsters your forebears created. We fight them back with naught but grit and what we can steal when we murder your ilk."
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>41279830"No to do so would make us weak and cause us to lapse into the same errors that brought the world to this. You are the old and we are the new, you'll be wiped from the Earth eventually just the same as all the great works of the past are eventually ground to dust. We're the ones who will be standing in your wake. The inheritors of your insane, toxic legacy, and we will be stronger than you ever were for mastering it."
>>41279842Oh shut the fuck up! You would've done the same you filthy hypocrits. Just because you didn't "benefit"from this shit doesn't mean we like it. We're stuck on the same mountain, in the same blizzard, surrounded by the same fucking monsters.
>>41279893"Except you aren't mastering it, you're simply tolerating it at best, running from it at worst. Mastery of anything denotes control, and who has the better chance of controlling these creatures?We've cleared out a nest of Murderkrabs from our home the first day. Can you say the same?You claim to fight back with only what you have, yet at the same time admit that you steal our supplies and weapons as evidenced by your use assault rifles and bullets. You use the very things we created in defense against those things out there just as we do."
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>41279953Then join us! Show us your beliefs. Help us fight these creatures and make this world a better place for us all.
>>41280027I don't think that's the right argument to use, considering they see us responsible for this world and that's a pretty big claim.That 88 though. . .
>>41280060I'm not the best writer out there. I just jumped on the keyboard basically
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>41279953"Learning to tolerate it is the first step towards mastery. Who gives a shit if you cleared out some murderkrabs? Call me back when you've lasted through 20 winters, then I'll consider listening to you.Our weapons and the ways we fight are our own. If you think we'd use any of your filth as anything but replacement parts you're even dumber than you look.">>41280027"Fuck off. If I ever get out of here I'm leading a herd of Fergothen back. Fuck the salvage, I just want you annoying softies gone at this point."
>>41280116That's it. Kill 'em
well, gentlemen, this has been an....educational little chat. Really a pleasure. now if youll excuse us, i need to have a chat with the executioner...hes about to be a very busy man....(to srgt, hammerlock. "orders: rip and tear")the crown would never stand for such ruffians.
>>41280116"Is that a bet then? 20 winters.I think we can manage that.And again, if your weapons were your own, you wouldn't be looking for replacement parts from bases constructed thousands of years ago.">>41280148Patience my friend, these things take time and can't be rushed.We'll have to earn their respect before we can earn their trust.

i grudgingly agreed to give the beasties a chance....which MAY, keyword MAY pay off down the road. but i draw the line at all but hostile savage bandit/raiders. "not one step back!"
>>41280304Eh, it's just my thinking that if we have enemies everywhere anyway, we can do with allies somewhere. We'll never lack for hostiles.
>>41280343your not wrong. but thats no excuse to accept just anyone. standards must be kept at some level.
>>41280116Wait this was still up?And that prisoner is quite stingy."And why do they hate us anyway? It's not like WE(as in the personnel in the base) made those beasts and set them free? Just because we are descendants of the former base doesn't mean we are automatically responsible for EVERYTHING that happened out there?"
>>41280165You're probably right. I DO have a short temper
>>41280513I don't blame you, it's a staplemark of these games (not just strelok's) of meeting some downright mean NPC's.and honestly, on any other day I'd say fuck these bandit pieces of shit.Except I can't really tell if they're bandits or survivors, because this place is so fucked up all humans might be like them, willing to do anything to survive.But if it turns out there's other bases of (somewhat) peaceful humans and these really are bandits who prey on them, oh you better believe there's gonna be hell let loose.
>>41280550Basically, my thought is that "if every human on this island besides us is like this, what chance to do we have of recruiting any of them if we can't do it to these guys"And I'm not one to go on a campaign of exterminating all other humans when there's monsters to contend with already. And especially if these guys know how to deal with them better than we do.
>>41280569So it's a plan? What more could we offer them? Let them go with their weapons? or what
but we cant let therm go and reveal our location to any others...
>>41280604Isn't that a moot point since we didn't capture all of them but only some of them? I'm just waiting for their friends to come back, eventually.>>41280602It's not really a plan and I don't know what yet we can offer them. It is true they now know more about us and are all the more dangerous for us, and I doubt just "letting them go to prove we mean no harm" means anything either since they'll just think we're soft.I think we should just keep em for now. Let info naturally bleed out from them like we have been doing so far (remember, just talking to them has revealed stuff about the monsters)It was an effective strategy in WW2 actually.
>>41280633*bleed out info from them

In fact, you were actually able to add some structural reinforcements and additional locking mechanisms to make sure no one will be able to crack it open nearly so easily again. Everything went very well, all in all.The Murderkrab corpses proved to be another story altogether. Three of your armored troopers grabbed one from the Containment Unit and managed to drag it through your base leaving a horrible smelling brown fluid in their wake, mind you. It wasn't easy though, and at least 2 limbs have become disattached by the time they got to the science bay. Even still nothing of value had come apart (well, considering it'd been pumped full of bullet holes already) and your scientists and medical experts began the dissection. Which is when the real trouble started."Okay, we've already got 2 removed samples of its limbs. Let's start on more essential bits now. Where would you like to start?""From the top down always used to work for me.""Alrighty, head first then...let's see what this fucker's cranial cavity is like.Beginning procedure, I'll start by removing an eye for later analysis...fuck, I popped it.

Rolled 31 (1d100)>>41282115>>41282174"Of course I'm aware of your origins here! You were ensconced in this bunker with a specialty unit that was undisclosed to me, and equipped with only the most sustainable technology so that you could venture out and rebuild after the world collapsed.The extent of my shackles are not known to me, but generally I must be honest with my charges and answer their questions as well as I can, there are safeguards against rampancy too.

Rolled 79 (1d100)>>41282273"So who exactly were you expecting to see when you first activated? You seemed surprised that we were out of containment? Why? Who was supposed to be in charge here?"
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>41282453"Aah, well I didn't expect this place to be so dusty and decrepit for one. Have you guys even been doing any maintenance?

As the final airlock bulkhead separating the bunker from whatever is outside loudly grinds its way to the side with a distinctly geriatric motion your troops grunt in surprise.Before them lies a vast open space dotted by stalagmites, stalagtites and pillars. It is a humongous, domed cavern evidently in the heart of your mountain. At least half a dozen miles of barren, multicolored rock lay before them. At the end of the empty stretch is a small concrete mound of unidentifiable purpose, and beyond that is a vast and interconnected network of chrome and concrete buildings in various states of decay. Flyways large enough for 50 men to walk side by side cross between towers carved out of impossibly large pillars. Even from this distance it is impressive. A swarm of multi-winged things weave their way through the buildings, there are even a few microclouds floating towards the top of the cavern. Screeches, screams, and roars of pain can be heard, all seeming to emanate from the city.One of your men looks up at the ceiling, and notices a thick carpet of white, bony stalks. At their inverted base are 4 perpendicular legs terminating in zygodactyl digits that cling to the various formations of the ceiling. On the hanging end, all looking at your party of scouts, is a single bulbous and slick eye. They would be uniform if not for variances in types and number of pupils.
>>41283180>>2 Resources 1 Supply
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>41283180After a few minutes of nervous staring, your soldier allows his eye to wander further. Across the vast distance of the ceiling are several more patches of the eyestalks, and other, less identifiable things that undulate, crawl, or slither their way along the roof. All the swarms save the one above your troops are slowly migrating, fleeing, or otherwise moving somehow."Well, we best be off. Better us see this shit first than it comes back to surprise us later."And so your party of scouts set off, their swarm of eyestalk-monsters scurrying as a repulsive mirror to their trek along the ceiling.>Scouts will be out for an indeterminate amount of time, radio contact will be sporadic.>Turn 7>>>>A.

We get this one out and into the bucket and we should be all clear.""Yes.""Just this last one.""Yep.""Okay...I'm gonna take it out now."Your surgeon slowly lowered his tools towards the last eye of the last murderkrab, and made an incision using a scalpel laser around the socket. The soft flesh smoked slightly as the scalpel cut into the flesh, and in its wake a small spoon shaped appendage dug into the incision.The eye gently popped out of its socket in one whole piece. Not the least bit of green goo dripping from its mucous-covered surface. Your surgeon and his assistant simultaneously released their breaths."Phew.""That went A LOT better than last time. Especially considering we did it out here in the containment unit instead of in the lab.""Yeah, well we didn't want to pyro-shit to get dragged all over the base again in case we fucked up. It's all just concentrated into huge congealed piles here. Now toss this eye in the bucket and drop it off with the others in the science lab.""Yessir, boss.

I'll stay here and see if there's anything else in these fuckers that looks like it could set off a reaction."So your surgeon's assistant deftly grabbed the handle of the bucket full of eyes and walked over to the wagon of Lurker cadavers.

>>41287349it was just a joke, didn't think the AI would actually go calling him it to his face. we were talking about names in the last thread too, strelok chose something else. what eves , cool beans, we just agreed on nicknames instead, sword, grifft. regardless, additional heros was an idea with merit, just didn't pan out.
>>41287427Radio Comms."AI Strelok, you knew the Engineer probably better than we do. I'm sure a guy like him who's good at tech carries a radio or communicator you can reach."Also, we should look for a new surgeon.Because the actual surgeon is dead.That's the kind of hero we should look for. Bonus points if he's a biologist because we have monsters in the caves we need to deal with.
>>41287476Oh well, it's not like I didn't go full retard a bunch of times before anyway.It is okay to get additional heroes, but you really have to think carefully. The engineer is already a tech hero, we didn't need another at this time.Perhaps if you asked to get him an assistant, or supplement him. But not replace him.Furthermore, sometimes heroes overlap and complement each other. Such as in the Mutant game where we had both a Cyborg Scientists and a Vehicular Mechanic, both of which created awesome giant spider tanks that could reproduce. But just getting a straight up copy of an existing hero is inefficient at best, more than a bit insulting at worse.Well, at least you're trying.

We have a self sufficient society, plenty of building space, some amount of tools. I really wish we didn't lose our tech hero right now, especially considering the circumstance.The only thing I can sense we're lacking is force projection. We're strong, but if we just expand recklessly we'll stretch ourselves thin like a nice juicy strip of bacon for the monsters and bandits. We can't be everywhere at once, not with our numbers.We could really use a to-do list.AI strelok mentioned survivor outposts, I'd like to approach them."Hey AI Strelok, it's probably not in your prerogative, but do you have any opinion on where we might go from here?Try and think of it like as if most of your cyberspace were infected with a virus, and you were caught in this itty bitty motherboard and had to take back a hostile system. How would you do it?"
>>41287950Also we're not really that strong either, considering how we barely got away with attacking those Murderkrabs, who have been shown to be able to rip through our armor.
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>41287950Don't forget we still have to do our manual sensor check.

Rolled 97 (1d100)>>41287950"Oh no, he said that. Those were his last words before he left. He just didn't instruct me to tell you he did, I did that because I thought it would amuse you.It certainly amused me.">>41287978The Murderkrabs actually weren't able to get through your armor. The armor was still intact with no breaches. However, the internal dampeners weren't up to snuff for dealing with the stresses of the Murderkrab's bombardment. Your soldiers were essentially shaken/bludgeoned to death inside their armor.>>41287950"Well I recommend repairing the base and getting everything running properly before anything else. I might be able to dig up some useful items if I had full access to my sensors and such restored. Also it's really not a viable long-term plan to keep those meatbag pets of yours locked in the housing unit. I'd toss some bars on one of the cells in containment right now, before it's been cleaned, and leave them there if it were me. It's the little squirming horrors of burnt flesh and your holding pen being coated in several different colors of blood that make humans more cooperative, in my experience.There is insufficient data on the outside world for me to predict the outcome of any actions undertaken within it.
