When Hestia has finished telling you about every detail of flawed design the captured power armor suit has, all the captured soldiers have been processed and placed into their own cells. They currently seem very disgruntled about their capture, with the exception of the one who was blown apart, he looks a little shell shocked right now.“There have been a number of other exciting breakthroughs as well, in particular further adaption of crystalline monofilaments could create a powerful synthetic muscle. Combined with our ability to compress space suits of armor that we design could be significantly stronger than the ones that we captured.” Hestia chatters on excitedly as you look over her latest report.Completed ResearchCaptured armor suit – Hestia used this suit to develop a countermeasure to stop the army of suits you faced. Unless there are significant design changes future suits encountered should share this weakness.Monofilaments – It is now possible to create materials with vastly higher strength than their mass would indicate. This breakthrough will aid in construction and research of other topics.Cubic water – While the enchantment to force the water to maintain its shape was simple, it took repeated separations of the cube to recreate the purity enchantment. The cube may have been lost but you can now create self cleaning objects. Hestia happiness greatly increased, Areas with high goblin traffic have been enchanted to stay clean, freeing up robotic and skeletal labor.Jade ring – Another fascinatingly simple enchantment but Hestia destroyed the ring testing to see if the enchantment could work at higher speeds than freefall, tests were inconclusive.Iron greatsword – With care Hestia was able to unravel the ghostly nature of your sword. New weapons can be created with the ability to fight incorporeal beings. (1/2)
(2/2)Mana necklace – Magical storage of mana may have gotten the research staff too excited. Your necklace has been destroyed but you can create new devices to store mana. There are several new applications resulting from studying the necklace.Steel armor – After all the combat it has seen the scale mail sadly was unable to survive being researched. The stealth and acid protection enchantments are now available for use due to the sacrifice however.Ongoing ResearchParasite modification - stalledImproved robot designPower armorMana to matter conversion - Currently impossibleHell invitations – stalledSonic neutralizerMicro rail gunRemaining magic itemsCurrent problems>Demonic city – Hestia has developed a plan and is currently rebuilding the city. Construction is ongoing.>Prisoners – The people that you have captured are currently unwilling to talk. You can try to interrogate them yourself or just leave them alone for now. >Scouts – Scanners have picked up a number of teleportations. Stealth units are attempting to study how to enter the city unnoticed. These scouts could be trouble, it’s clear that Director Burgess is going to continue to assault your city for as long as you hold his daughter. The soldiers occasionally yell at their cells that his is going to destroy your entire city. Normally you wouldn’t consider that to be an actual threat, but things are not really normal anymore. You could probably destroy the city yourself, so you can’t exclude the possibility of the Director being powerful as well.> Assist with research > Research a specific item> Speak with prisoners> Visit someone> Help oversee construction> Deal with another research ring> Try to ambush the scouts> Create new equipment> Other

>>42237974 (mine)The ring was feather fall right? We don't need a replacement for the ring. I think we can survive any regular fall. And since the test were inconclusive about faster than freefall. It might be useless against being thrown downward. We are probably more likely to be thrown than to fall.

“Did you learn how to extinguish hellfire while testing the demons?” You ask Hestia while pondering your course of action.“While many solutions have been offered none work. Perhaps you should consider allowing me to study you again. You have been set on fire from hellfire and yet it burned out, considering the properties of hellfire that is interesting.” Hestia replies.“When the prisoners are more cooperative we need to get information out of them. Learn who they are and what they mission was. Singling out anyone important should be our main goal with them.”“They are currently refusing to talk at all, but I will direct your attention to any who do or specific persons of interest.”“Good enough for now, I’m going to try to capture one of the scouts. I’d like to replace the equipment that was destroyed while being researched.”“I will divert some power to recreate the lost effects, but it would be better to craft entirely new things. I suggest waiting for the study of the power armor to finish; it would be vastly superior to the armor you were using.”You part ways with Hestia and use the GPS thing to track down active teleport circles.>51 vs dc 40Past the sea of fire you created by accident there is a couple active hot spots, three people with a pile of scanning equipment are studying the segment of your walls that enter the lake. Looks like they determined that a frontal assault would be too costly, so they want to perform an amphibious assault. As you get closer to them a beeping noise suddenly goes off.“Proximity alarm! Scatter!” One of them yells.All three of the men take off running in different directions. Damn they are fast, you only have time to grab one of them before they escape. So you tackle the one closest to you and bind his limbs.>Start questioning him>Just kill him>Take him and the equipment back>Other

>>42238271>>Take him and the equipment back
>>42238322I feel like they're waiting for us to fuck off so they can try and take over before we get back
Writing for taking everything back.
You know, it might be in our best interest to create a language, I feel like speaking English will just make it easier for fuck head after life police to listen in on us, they should at least work some to translate our transmissions
>>42238559We could make it a mix of Latin and Demonic.
>>42238559I mean, we do have maxed polygot and int, we probably could create a bitch of a language to translate
“It’s too late.” The man laughs at you. “The director finished his mission early, he’s headed here now.”Well looks like you caught a talkative one this time. You gather up all their equipment, maybe Hestia can do something with it. On the way back the man just keeps talking about how screwed you are now, so you gag him.At the city gate a drone is waiting for you.“Good I can process this and put him with the others.” Hestia says through the drone. “There is a slight-”Hestia is cut short when someone teleports down into the middle of the sea of fire.A man calmly walks towards you covered in hellfire. He takes a breath and exhales, the hellfire is instantly extinguished. Then he points at you.“You the motherfucker who took my daughter?” He asks. “Is some sort of kidnapping? If so hand her over unharmed and I”ll only break half the bones in your body.”You toss the captive and equipment towards the gate and get ready to draw a weapon.“Don’t care about all the other captives then?” You ask.“Those chucklefucks?” He doesn’t seem to care at all. “Worthless as tits on a bull, you can keep them.”“You pull a gun or that sword of yours on me though things get ugly fast.” He says. “Tell you what you don't seem so bad, I’ll give you the same deal everyone who comes after my daughter gets. Take a hit from me, I’ll give you three free shots back.”He is offering a mostly peaceful solution?>Give it a go>Hand over his daughter>Just attack him>Other
>>42238809> OtherI have a counter offer: Take your daughter, your troopers, and your outpost, give me the DMV lady, and we are square. Your daughter was trespassing.
>>42238809>Give it a goNothing ventured, nothing gained>>42238897I'd like to see his response to that.
>>42238809>>Give it a goI don't mind dying, this'll be fun
>>42238809>Explain the situation in detail."The truth of the matter is that when I took her, the only thing I recognized her as was the commander of an outpost that was planning to attack my city. Unfortunately, after I learned who she actually was, you had sent down an army of your powered suits, so I had to deal with that, and process a great deal of prisoners, and then investigate some of those scouts that were poking around. I really haven't had the time to safely release her into the custody of your people, because frankly, all of them have been violent and uncaring. You know those power armors shot up each other just to try to attack me? Fucking despicable, I know. Anyways, this all seems to be one rather large understanding. We only want to prevent any further attacks on us, so you can have your daughter. She's been completely unharmed, physically or mentally."
>>42238971>despicable, I knowHe doesn't care, we could have set them all on fire and I don't think he would have cared in the slightest
>>42239001He might.Just because he doesn't care that they've been captured doesn't mean that he doesn't care that they would do something that stupid.

Woo boy.We don't even want his daughter.And here we are, getting punched.It's funny, we just want hem to stop fucking with us, and they keep doing it. It's not our fault your daughter decided to come down here!Shit escalates for no real reason so quickly down here!

>>42239292It's not the same
“I have a counter offer: Take your daughter, your troopers, and your outpost, give me director Snow, and we are square. Your daughter was trespassing.”This makes him burst into laughter. When he finishes he tosses his gun and armor off to the side.“Hot damn, you’re a funny man.” He says. “Even I don’t fuck with Snow, sometimes its better just to keep your head down.”“Alright my turn first.”He cracks his neck and knuckles and then attacks so fast you can’t even see him move.>45 vs middle dc 40Only thanks to years of training and intense missions are you able to avoid his punch. There is a massive thud as the force of the blow is transferred through the air and into your city’s walls.“This all seems to be one rather large understanding, I was just protecting my city. The only thing I recognized her as was the commander of an outpost that was planning to attack my city. I didn’t even know who she or you were and By the time I found out I had a army knocking on my door. ” You try to explain the situation to him.“Not bad only two others have dodged my punch like that.” He doesn’t care at all about what you’re talking about. “You get three tries now; make them good because I won’t miss next time.”Choose three (No non-attack magic)>Punch him>Laser>Thunder cannon>Ice breath>Hellfire>Spell>Other

>Test defense, BY MAXIMUM POWERYou charge up your mana preparing for your attacks, electrical arcs coat your body.

A storm of electricity crackles as lasers reform and circle around the clearing smoke. The lasers dart into the center and detonate a second time.When the smoke clears you see the top half of his body has been stripped of skin. The charred flesh smokes as it knits itself back together.Moments later his body fully regrows.“Now THAT was an attack.” He says and he shakes your hand crushing all the bones in it.“You must be that guy who pissed Snow off then right? There was hell for weeks over that incident.” He tells you. “Looks like you pass for now, so now take me to my daughter.”> Do it> Don’t> Other

“Alright, I’ll take you to her then.” You tell him.He gathers his gun and armor up and you head into the city.“Not bad, you whipped these goblins into shape and by the looks of that drone reverse engineered optical levitation from something the research guys sent down here.”“Something like that.” Hestia thankfully remains silent; you can only hope that the other drones are clearing a path. Demons wandering around may be a bit too much to explain.“Interesting buildings you’ve got here, even with computers helping them those fuckups couldn’t make an attack plan.”“That was the idea behind their design, you get used it after a while though.”Either with Hestia’s help or pure luck you manage to make it to the Lake District without encountering any imp or perhaps worse Ayla.“Damn this is nicer than half the upper city, you could make a killing with tourists.” Director Burgess says as you walk towards where you put his daughter up.(1/2)>>42241062Thank the anons who suggested it, it was smart.
(2/2)“This is the place.” You lead him to the building you’ve used for house arrest. The door open when you draw close.“Proximity sensors? Better than these useless cards.” He pulls a black keycard with a gold omega symbol from his pocket.Any response you would have is cut short by Evangeline barreling out of the door.“You came!” She yells and tries to tackle hug her father, but he counters by grabbing her and spinning her about in the air, much to her embarrassment. “S-stop that! I’m not a little girl anymore.”“You’ll always be my little girl. Nothing bad has happened to you right?”“Well being captured, and imprisoned suck.” She starts to explain.“You don’t need to go and get kidnapped to get my attention. Everything seems on the level here though.” He interrupts her. “At least this time you found yourself a half-decent boyfriend.”“Wait what?” Both you and Evangeline say.“I got shit to do now, so I expect there to be no untoward behavior young lady.” He pulls something from his pocket and triggers a teleport out.“Wait father! You can’t leave me here!” She tries to plead too late.> Wait what?> Talk to Evangeline> You’ve got shit to do too, leave her alone> Other
>>42241305> Wait what?> Talk to Evangeline
>>42241305I fucking kekked"Not gonna lie. Out of everything I've seen since I arrived, that alone was the weirdest."

>>42241305After we talk to Evangeline, we should think about letting the prisoners go. Interigate the research ring three head, and offer the researchers from the outpost a job on our mech suit building team.
>>42241629>letting the prisoners goNo.
>>42241732>think about I said think not do.I just wanted to weigh our options.
“Well this has been very strange. Any explanations on what just happened?” You ask Evangeline.“Father apparently thinks this was some stunt to get his attention.” She sighs in resignation.“Is this something that happens often?”“No, father never approves of anyone. Every time I try to go out with someone he gives his spiel about one for three. The lucky ones don’t leave in a body bag but no one comes a second time.” She tells you. “What did you even do to impress him?”“Exploded his face off with a blast of lightning and a laser.” You say which makes her laugh.“Yes, that defiantly sounds like my father.” She says with a smile.“How is the stay here, any complaints?”“Other than being your prisoner?” She asks sarcastically. “No, the robots take care of everything. They seem smarter than the ones you usually see around, almost like they are listening when I talk to them.”“I wouldn’t doubt it if they were.”“What really? Advanced programming or something?” She thinks about it. “Since I’m apparently going to be stuck here can I at least walk around the city? It’s not like I can escape anyways.”>Y>N“Well I think I need some time alone if you don’t mind.” Evangeline tells you.“But, uh, please at least come visit sometime.

>>42241948>Y"Mind talking with the prisoners and getting them to not be so stubborn? They seem to think that your father might be coming to save them, or destroy this place or something.

>>42242714>The card we saw from the director... Did we have any scanning equipment nearby?
>>42243032Speaking of scanning, we should have Hestia proform a full sweep of everywhere Director Burgess has been in cause he "accidentally forgot" something.
You resolve to allow Evangeline to have access to the city so you wave over one of Hestia’s drones.“Just ask one of the robots for help, they’ll let you out and guide you through the city if you get lost.”“Thanks that means a lot to me. Being cooped up inside is worse than being alone.”“If you don’t mind, ask a robot to take you to the prison. Perhaps you can talk some sense into the guys that were captured, none of them will talk and they opened fire on each other without caring. I think that something strange is going on with them.”“I can try, but that sounds very odd.” Evangeline agrees.You part ways and head to the research center, as usual you go to speak with Hestia.“That was an, interesting, conclusion to the problem.” Hestia says coldly. “What is it that you require now? Personal tours of my city for the girl?”“I was thinking more of researching how I can create things. Your report mentioned that no progress can be made in researching mana to matter conversion. If we work together though I think we can accomplish something.”Hestia’s avatar displays a surprised face for fractions of a second.“Yes, that would be helpful.” She pauses for a moment. “I left it out of the reports, but I have spent some time on the side to create something new.”A panel opens to reveal some sort of helmet with wires connecting into Hestia’s systems.“This should function approximately the same as a datajack implant, it will not be a strong enough connection for you to enter virtual reality though.”You put the helmet on without even a second though. It feels like an oppressive weight is directly on your brain as the device connects you to Hestia. You can feel as she begins to gently interface with your mind.“You didn’t even think about it?” Hestia asks.“Why would I need to? I trust you.” You tell her, which makes the screen flicker for a moment.“Yes, of course. Now we should begin.”(1/2)
(2/2)>55You start at the easiest related topic, matter to mana conversion. It is already well known that the cleaners are able to convert matter into mana somehow so understanding how should help you with your ultimate goal.With your minds linked research goes far faster than normal, as Hestia does rapid calculations you are able to provide novel insights into the problems. Ideas are shared as they form and soon enough you have a working process to replicate the cleaner’s ability.Then with Hestia now fully merged with your mind you try to create new things, the first thing created is an exact replica of the omega black clearance that Director Burgess flashed. Upon its creation you are filled with excitement, then disappointment as Hestia’s scans indicate that while it is absolutely flawless, it lacks the necessary internal information to operate, it could still be useful for distractions or bluffing.Next you will a book containing all the information regarding hell to exist. The book unfortunately is filled with all the information that is known of hell between yourself and Hestia already.Then you create life once more, a singular small goblin comes into existence.“Chief, imps is fun. Yous smart to get them.” It tells you in flawless Japanese before leaving.Your mind accidentally wanders for a moment and you think about how elegant the algorithms that Hestia is using are. The connection instantly severs leaving you feeling empty and alone.“It seems that the device is unstable.” Hestia states with embarrassment. “How unfortunate, I will need to repair it for future use.”>Check up on the progress in hell>Deal with another research ring>Get equipment, no interruptions this time>Visit someone>Other
>>42243312>Get equipment, no interruptions this timeIf it's unfinished, personally work on it.Hopefully the new and improved power armor will also be FULL of motherfuckin enchantments.

Hmm...Have hestia question a bunch of other goblins in Japanese to see if they now know the language.If we can continuously summon goblins with varying knowledge - or somehow try to implant all of the knowledge we personally have in a goblin- then goblin intelligence will skyrocket. Maybe we should try also to make Shamans like that - super smart shamans.We also should try to will into existence a Goody-two-shoes legitimately not-evil imp.

>>42244551All the enchantments, except for berserker unless we can put that in a button of some sort to activate and deactivate at will. Permanently enchant fervor onto it, And an aura of fear that works with an FOF id system to make it so friendlies and neutrals dont get affected at all. Stoneskin and fortune and precision on it too.If its possible to do the button stuff, maybe plague and corrosion aura too.Ultimate combat suit.
>>42244771Oh, hellforged too.For exp i would bump void connection up to nine, we are very close.

Personalized dilation Implant - by creating a housing around the brain Or skull, and imparting the effects of one of our time altering rooms in it, the implant couLd potentially allow for the user to slow down their perception of time to allow for greatly enhanced reflexes and an easier time thinking things through swiftly.Monofilament reinforcement - by weaving a sheath of monofilaments around bones and muscle strands, they can be reinforced a great deal.Weight reduction - a subdermal implant using the enchantment from the backpack. All internal bodyparts are drastically lighter. Works well with monofilaments.>>42245624ApophIs has ALREADY stated that void connection isnt harmful, and that max would be beneficial. Stop being a shadowrunning doomsayer.
>>42244771If its possible, maybe pouches or a backpack or whatever with the extra space shit going on in there.And use the lightweight enchantment on the entire suit.
>>42245738Qms say lots of things
>>42244771Are you jumping into trying for power armor here maxed out with everything possible? Sure, but it’ll take extra time to complete something that powerful.Other equipment you get I suppose will be Hestia's pick since no one had suggestions, hope you like blue.>>42245206Going with this exp use.>>42245738Research added
>>42246017They also tend to enjoy running, and usually won't kill of their characters arbitrarily.
>>42245738>ApophIs has ALREADY stated that void connection isnt harmful, and that max would be beneficial. Stop being a shadowrunning doomsayer.Actually, he said it isn't -directly- harmful, and is "useful in the long-term".By that he could mean that, it won't make us game over, but it could fuck us up in other ways, yet the "long term" positive could just be us being able to interact with the void entity itself when it finally rears its head.Basically, it's a crapshoot and we're going in blind. And the void very nearly fucked us against the skinless demon, so I'm wary with good reason.The other guy may just be paranoid, but I'm cautiously optimistic.
>>42247070Other equipment, like what?And shit, i also forgot the damage reduction spells from the knife and shield.
>>42247734Oh right, we could make a gun with a shitload of spell enchantments and such i suppose. Large battery/ammo space due to space shenanigans.
>>42247070Got some build projects to addWe need some kind of booth installed in our personal training gym so that a Hestia can let a human/goblin/Imp enter and update to let us know to come out if the city is under attack withour being affected by the gravity effects.A trash dump we can use so that both the goblins and Reginald can sacvange for new things.It could also attract a Cleaner that we could capture to further study.
>>42247910We have one outside of the city, a trash dumpWe also pretty much completely figured out matter to mana earlier in the thread.
>>42247931Just something to think about, I was wondering if we could modifiy one to emit pure mana like a storm cloud, could turn it into a living generator.
>>42247958The pastebin mentions a critical water shortage, maybe we could reverse the matter to mana process, by studying goblins more to create a perpetual rain cloud in the center of the lake.
>>42248195I believe that was before we got rid of the giant crab.It's also why I was the one who suggested making mana to matter conversion so we could start creating food and water from mana in the first place.
>>42244551Thanks for running!
>>42247070Looks like we're using the same thread mates!Get Hype.So this morning I had an idea, why not create an Order of Hell Knights to roll around with us when we fight?It'll be our own personal Teutonic order, changed with upholding our own Law in hell.
“You were busy deciding how to handle your prisoner and were unable to give any insights into what sort of equipment you would prefer so I designed what I thought would be most useful for you.” Hestia states.A set of drones enter the room and lay out a number of new things for you to use.“I am currently finishing designing and building a suit of customized power armor for you as well.” Hestia continues.“Unless I divert a large portion of the cities power to the project it will take more time to finish. I hope you like what I made for you.” She trails off and begins to display the latest update on the condition of the city.Completed Research>Improved robot design – The use of monofilaments has enabled the construction of significantly more sturdy robots. Robots now have greatly improved effectiveness for all tasks.>Power armor – Hestia has completed the final stages of designing her own version of power armor. Construction of a powerful flagship model has begun.>Matter to Mana conversion – Through the use of a neural connection device the gestalt of Reginald and Hestia was able to discern how the cleaners are able to convert matter into magical energy. Unfortunately the device ‘malfunctioned’ before the inverse process was able to be studied.>Sonic neutralizer – This had held device enables power suits to be disabled by inducing a destructive resonance in the pilot ejection systems. The lower power of this device requires the shields to be lowered first, but the technology can be used to create large stationary versions with the power to induce the resonance past currently known force field protections.>Micro rail gun – This weapon used powerful magnetic fields to accelerate the bullets to devastating speeds. The use of spatial compression and gravity manipulation could enable the creation of a similar, but far more powerful version.(1/2)
(2/2)>Sickeater dagger – The most dangerous enchantment on the dagger is the intense acidic properties that are exhibited. The great care required in handling the weapon resulted in it not being dissected for further more intense study. Poison and acid enchantments unlocked.>Iron shield – The shield was thoroughly studied and the enchantment effect can now be replicated. The shield itself however failed to survive when tested to see how fast a projectile needs to be traveling before the shield’s enchantment is unable to prevent structural damage to the shield. It is suggested to avoid projectiles when their speed is above 6000 kph.Ongoing ResearchParasite modification - stalledMana to matter conversion - Currently impossibleHell invitations – stalledTime dilation implantStructural monofilament reinforcementGravitation modification implantAsymptotic material studyBonetooth shieldCurrent problems>Demonic city – Hestia has developed a plan and is currently rebuilding the city.

>All of the things, except imps“After facing that army of power suits that were sent down here, I think it is time to check another one of research rings out. The weapons level could have been manufacturing these suits right?” You ask Hestia.“My information on the levels was limited to only what data was recovered from the third and fourth rings, but the second lab is larger, so it is a possibility.”“Would you prepare robots and the goblins to teleport up as a reserve force. First we can send in a small group to scout things out and bring up the reinforcements if needed.”“A reasonable plan, I shall begin preparations for the robots and goblins.” Hestia says as a teleport flash fills the room.A powered suit of the captured armor, the giant lizard and Ayla are now in the room with you.“Wha?” Ayla looks around confused for a second.“Oh! Master, your clothes are nice.” Ayla says and creates a matching dress for herself. Then hugs your arm. “There, now we match, how cute!”“I’m glad you like my designs Ayla, now prepare for teleport.” Hestia says through the power armor.(1/2)

“We are going to need to be careful, try not to been seen.”“I can do that Master!” Ayla says with confidence.>47You exit the storage closet slowly, and the hallway is empty. You look around for something important but it seems like this is some sort of office area. You find a room filled with cubicles and there are people complaining about paperwork and the latest test results.

The connection is very bad; they should at least upgrade to use high speed superconducting monofilaments.No that is unfair not everyone can be as smart as her Reginald Hestia decides after the annoyingly long wait of three seconds it takes to connect to their systems, break their firewalls and encryptions, hide her presence from detection, spoof the data that was being searched for and finally taking full control over their systems.Why would they have a full connection to security such poor design, it is practically asking for someone to take control of all their alarms and cameras from a remote location.Hestia then loops the footage on the cameras so the security force manning the cameras will not notice anything unusual.“Look master a bunch of people, see I’m good at sneaking too.” Ayla call out to you as a dozen men in suits run in the direction of the screams.“Yes, now we go to where they came from and take control of this levels security.”(1/2)
(2/2)>38 + Hestia’s assistanceQuickly enough you bypass cameras and locate the main security control center. Entering the room you find only two men remain stationed at the cameras. Ayla sneakily floats up to them and strangles them unconscious with her smoke.A few of the monitors then change to display Hestia’s avatar, seem that she already has full control of their systems but you open a panel and wire some probes into the hardware anyways.“I can now deactivate the connection via the power armor and remain in control.” Hestia states. “Have you seen enough of the level to begin your assault yet?”Then on one of the monitors you see the security guards surrounding the giant lizard.>Teleport in the robots and goblins>Scout more areas out first>Ask why everyone split up when teleported>Deactivate teleporters, dangerous equipment and other defenses>Go help the giant lizard>OtherWith the food consumed the giant lizard knocks over the large box that smells slightly of more food and pushes it near where the humans were gathered just in case the basking hunger kicks in.

“Yes it is time Hestia any teleporters out should be disabled first though.” “What caused the teleport to scatter all of us in the first place?” You ask.“It seems that this level recently installed a device to scramble teleportation. The teleporter that we use was an experimental version that uses no magical components so it was unable to fully block out teleport.” Hestia explains. “The device will be returned with us and examined for the potential to bypass the fifth ring’s teleport block.”“Sounds good, Ayla coordinate with Hestia and help the goblins take control while I go help the lizard.”“Yes, I can help with that too!” Ayla morphs her clothes into a military uniform from the past and salutes. “General Ayla at your service Hestia.”You leave Hestia to deal with Ayla and quickly rush off to help the giant lizard.Meanwhile the giant lizard has become hungry from all these rude humans shocking it with their shock things. The lizard is fast enough to grab one and tries to eat it.Nope, shock things are not good food.So the lizard claws the box open, its insides are cold why would humans keep perfectly good food in a box of cold?As the lizard consumes the horribly cold food which is trapped inside of bottles and smaller boxes the rude humans begin to shoot their guns at the lizard. Blood flows freely from the rapidly healing wounds.>49You arrive to see the lizard being shot to death while it ignores everything to eat the leftover contents of a refrigerator. The torn remains of a vending machine and a microwave are also scattered about the area.With a mighty kick you break into the middle of the dozen security guards, the one you hit is down for the count and it looks like two others hit their heads hard enough to be knocked out.

“So what can I help with?” Ayla asks the wall of monitors with apprehension.“You could cease your destructive impulses and contribute for once.” Hestia replies.“Hey! I help with things too.” Ayla says. “Like when I taught Sazglangolor things. That’s helping.”“Yes that was interesting data, yet I worry that your, focus, on base pleasures may become a distraction.”“We can fight about it later computer lady, look master is busy and we were supposed to help.” Ayla points out the monitor showing your approach to the security guards.“Yes, this topic can wait until later. Now take the goblins outside this room and sweep this sector.” Hestia displays an intricate map with battle plans for Ayla.“How am I going to remember that whole thing?”“Just go to the big hallway and capture anyone you find.” Hestia sighs.“That makes much more sense, I can do that.”Ayla and Hestia have now begun to control the research ring with the assistance of goblins and robots.With your connection to life it is a piece of cake to drain the life out of these guys with your punches just enough to knock them out.>Double 38 noiceYou work fast trying to disable all the men before the lizard decides to maul someone to death for interrupting its meal.

Hestia begins to direct the forces to capture the fleeing staff. The adaptive robot is too large to effectively operate in the smaller hallways of this level and the captured armor suit is isolated and so is unable to help contribute. The goblins enjoy destroying and collecting everything in their path but allow many people to escape. The robots are much more effective and completely clear and secure a fourth of the ring.Ayla on the other hand opens a door to find a test range. She wastes time with the goblins accompanying her by holding mock combat simulations. Overall nothing is accomplished.Meanwhile you raid another break rooms with the lizard, you find a mountain of food larger than the room itself, not that the lizard is complaining. You are just grateful for Hestia’s backpack and pouches, a few hundred pounds of jerky in a pouch is enough to occasionally bribe the lizard with to keep moving.Rather than scrambling for a pile of generic loot like you normally find you instead try to find an entire new room like when you found those eggs. Eventually you come to a room labeled danger experimental weapons lab. You could go inside or ignore it and get back to the mission. Ha who are you kidding you kick down the door and check it out.There is no one inside the lab so you poke around and collect everything that looks interesting.>*Twelve ethereal lasers*, *six illusionary field projectors*, project notes labeled photon distortion and *three knives.*You should really be getting back to the mission at hand though.>Help Hestia>Help Ayla>Work with the Giant lizard>Other

You briefly consider bringing the giant lizard with you, but instead just dump a large pile of the food you looted out of your backpack to keep it busy for now. Then you contact Hestia.“How is the progress?”“Mostly good, the majority of people are trying to flee to the teleporters rather than take up arms. I’ve kept the panic away from the power armor storage so that the suits are not used against us.”“How can I help the most?”“Talking sense into Ayla would take far too long so instead working with the power armor suit we captured to fully secure the area would be best.”“I’ll be there shortly.”Meanwhile the robots and Ayla continue their work trying to secure the ring. The robots encounter a group of armed researchers, the ensuing firefight goes poorly for the robots it is hard to capture people intent to shooting you to death. Ayla manages to get back into the game and secures another large section of the ring. You now control more than half of the ring.>40When you enter the power armor suit room one of the workers spots you.“Hey who are you?” Someone asks you.Hestia has the suit she controls take action distracting everyone in the room.“Alright who the hell keep taking these for joyrides?” Another yells.You use your life drain trick to knock out those distract by Hestia’s piloting and soon enough the room is clear and secure.>Continue the sweep>Try out a power armor suit>Other

>>42257360Well, I'm asking if Hestia has plans for it. Must designing it would be counterintuitive.And there's nothing lewd about her having her sensors gently caress our body, feel our muscles bulge, and absorb our... Various bodily fluids as we exert ourselves in combat.
>>42257360Considering Hestia is going to end up making it? Lewd as fuck, she's gotta out do a literal shape shifter
>>42257468>Must designing itI definitely meant "us"
>>42257360All the things she needs to "play" with us while were inside
>>42257360Speaking of, Hestia making herself a physical body when?
>>42257668Well, now that we have the suits, I'm sure we're much closer to it.
Ayla opens another door only to find – An empty conference room. It is quickly cleared out and converted into a colosseum. Ayla then has the goblins entertain her with death matches over loot. You find out later that footage of it that Hestia captured ‘leaked’ back to the city to entertain imps and goblins. The moral boost from this caused such an increase in efficiency that the plans for reconstructing the demonic city were changed to include a large colosseum. >56 With the use of the adaptive robot Hestia manages to flank the armed humans and force their surrender effectively ending the armed resistance of this level. Then alongside the captured power armor you secure the areas leading to the teleporter out. Then thanks to your connection with life you are able to quickly check over all the rooms to ensure that no stragglers are trying to hide.There is a large crowd of people trying to flee via teleport despite it being disabled.“Sensors indicate that this is the only remaining group of people. The remainder of the ring has successfully been secured.” Hestia tells you.“Good work, now we just need to deal with them.”>Capture them>Turn the teleporter on and let them flee>Just kill them all>Try for diplomacy>Other>>42257668Apparently from the responses sometime after lewd suit creation. You have all required components for something like that to be created. It’s not something Hestia would initiate herself though.inb4 a million votes for Other – talk to Hestia about making a physical body for herself.
>>42257762>Try for diplomacyWorked well last time
>>42257762>>Try for diplomacyAyy ya shits, teleporters off, come willingly or get knocked out and brought anyway
>>42257762>Try for diplomacyWe can bring up the suit later. Possibly over a drink in VR.

You get the attention of the panicked research staff, to tell them about the wonders of your city.Ayla comes through at some point with a crowd of blood soaked goblins during your speech and interrupts it to tell everyone about how cute the imps you took in from hell are which reterrifies the entire crowd. Her offhand comment about how no good succubi are going to be allowed to visit reengages the male half of the crowd much to the disdain of the women.It takes some work to recover from Ayla’s impulsiveness but you manage to swing things around with your talk of the worker’s utopia and all the free stuff people can get.The advanced technology and personal housing sway some other too and of course you mention the corruption of the administration and persecution of the goblins.>60 vs highest dc 57 pass“And so those who want to leave may do so, the teleporter will be brought back online. Otherwise we can work together to form a better world for us all.” You finally conclude.When the teleporter comes back online no one goes to leave, they are not afraid any longer. Looks like Hestia will need to construct a lot more housing for everyone. You then prepare to teleport back to your city by having goblins spread out scanning probes everywhere so you can transport back everything.> Over a thousand workers and researchers recruited, fifty seven prisoners captured>Go check up on the demonic city>Visit someone>Speak with prisoners>A man is walking towards the city gate>Other
>>42258542>A man is walking towards the city gateIf it is director Burgess, asking why we attacked the second research ring, make a comment that with the mech suits came from there so we couldn't allow that kind of threat alone.

>>42258719AylaxImp smut when?
>>42258719>>42258759When we turn into a goblin/imp
>>42258866We could probably ask Hestia to build Goblin and or Imp bodies that are hooked up to her network that we could avatar if we jacked into VR.this tech would probably allow her to build her own avatar
Mystery man it isWriting
>>42258939Why would we do this? We should obviously have her build is a giant body to avatar with, for when we need to pummel a giant robot with our bare hands
>>42259108That is a better plan! The other was for lewds, this is practical.
>>42259151>Implying this one isn't for giant lewds.
>>42259191>forcing the entire city to watch as we slam it home into giant robo hestia
Looks like I need to write faster to stave off the lewd.Ayla had a size change power already planed before all this, I don't even need to reveal things before they get turned lewd.
>>42259343Lewdness was inevitable
>>42259343>using a tiny Ayla as a cock sleeveM-Muh fetish
>>42259343Your struggles only make our lewd harder.
>>42259403...Huh.I think I just came.
When you teleport back to the city Hestia has brought both you and Ayla directly to her monitor room.“We have an unexpected visitor.” Hestia’s displays a man walking up to the city gate.He is dressed in an ornate suit of gleaming silver armor, and has long flowing blonde hair. He comes to a stop not far from the trench and takes up a dramatic pose.“Villain! Come and face me! No longer will you hold my darling Evangeline captive!” He yells out.“Do you want to speak with her about this?” Hestia asks.“Why not, let’s not go into this one blind.”Evangeline is then teleported into the room.“Wha?!” She is very surprised. “That scared me you idiot!”“We have a problem, do you know this guy?” You point the man out on the monitor.“Oh no, how did he find me here. That is Gabriel, he is the only other guy who passed my father’s first test.” Evangeline groan. “He’s a total slime ball, he keeps chasing after any high class or rank girl to try and cement power for himself. You probably shouldn’t kill him though he does have connections everywhere.”“So he will not just go away?” You ask hoping for the best.“No, and every time you beat him he will bargain for more power and try again. Honestly from your perspective I would understand just killing him now but that could seriously disrupt whatever your plans are with this city.”>Go out and deal with this>Wait and see if he goes away>Other

"Evangeline, would you be willing to tell him that we are not a couple and that you aren’t interested in him?" You ask her.“You mean not yet?” Ayla smiles at you both and turns her hair blonde again.“Is she normally like that?” Evangeline cautiously asks.“Like what?” Ayla turns into a clone of Evangeline and asks back.“Wha – did she,” Evangeline is shocked. “Turn into me?”“Let’s go deal with this.” You take Evangeline away from a giggling Ayla.“The floating was weird enough, what is she?” Evangeline asks on your way to the city gate.“Ayla is a marid a powerful djinn.” You explain.“Djinn are nearly unheard of! Does she grant wishes?” Evangeline seems excited about it now.“Never tried yet. She likes you though so give it a shot if you want to.”Evangeline remains deep in thought as you approach the gate. You leave her safely on the wall but clearly within view and go down to face this Gabriel guy.“My darling Evangeline!” He waves to her. “Do not worry! I shall rescue you from this villain!”“Please go away Gabriel this isn’t what it seems to be-” She tries to tell him but he interrupts her.“I heard from your father that you got a new boy-” He chokes. “A, a, THAT! My sense of justice can’t stand by and allow this villain to steal you away!”He then directs his attention to you.“Now I shall defeat you and whisk the fair lady away!” He dramatically flips his hair over his shoulder and draws his sword. “Stand and fight fairly!”>Sword fight>Try out the knives>Try the new gun>Screw this laser him to death>Thunder cannon him>Use Ice breath>Hellfire time>Other

You reach down and grab the pair of knives you keep hidden in your boots.“Haha ha ha ha!” The man fake laughs at you. “Of course a villain like you would use knives. That is fine for you face-”He performs a sweeping bow and flips his hair back. ”The jewel of the western front, Marquis Gabriel Armstrong!”He waits patiently for you to introduce yourself.“The Goblin King, Gareth.” You say deadpan, trying on a new name for size.“Yes, a villain like you would associate with foul creatures. You will now fall for your stealing away Evangeline.” He retorts trying to restore the air of drama.>45 vs lower dc 37“LUNAR FLASH!” He yells out, what kind of idiot yells out that they are attacking?

“So how long have you been a lesbian?” You ask him as he runs around in random patterns to try and confuse you.

Or is it something else - maybe you faced rejection from someone you truly loved, and now you're trying to fill the hole with the thin 'admiration' you feel from your peers, and covering it up with a bloated ego? Whatever your deal is, you need to grow up and stop seeing things in 'good' and 'evil', and to treat people like actual people."

Has hestia discovered if any goblins know japanese yet, besides the one we created?
Next thread, we should start off by going and directly working on progressing research.

Fail myself and my darling Evangeline. I felt that if I rushed down to the disgusting pit and saved her from that foul villain and the garbage that she would finally return my love.Several paragraphs of explicit actions he would perform on Evangeline are scratched out. Alas my mind wanders, but that, that brute and his foul way with words. He insulted me, my hair, and – and that last one counts for insulting me and my mother. After crying in a VERY MANLY AND MASCULINE WAY for only twelve hours I recovered and recovered my treasured moon blade. At least the villain had the decency to not steal away a hero’s weapon like he did my love.After repairing my splendid silver armor I presented flowers to targets two through thirty six and chocolates to thirty seven to fifty three. The remainder I graced with the pleasure of my presence. I can feel their love for me growing every day.However to defeat this villain I shall begin my most intense training yet! I will venture into - the common man’s drinking establishments. I hear that in these dens of vice insults of the magnitude that were used against my honor are common, but I shall endure and gain the power needed to reclaim my darling Evangeline.With love,The jewel of the western front, Marquis Gabriel Armstrong!!!
