Fifteen hours.You have fifteen hours before the slave auction starts.Houses and shops are boarded up and closed. Groups of slavers are sweeping the streets forcing everyone off the streets.With your ability to sense life you easily make your way through the city and find a building that is actually abandoned. The portal is easy enough to set up and Hestia sends through a drone to speak with you.“The auction time draws near,” Hestia states, “the final preparations for the auction should be currently underway.”“Have your scans revealed any points of interest?”“No, with the slavers forcing everyone indoors it is difficult to filter through what may be the auction location.”“Then let’s make use of the shadow companies, they can stealthily scout for the auction.”“I will prepare the goblins to assist you,” Hestia says and displays a hologram while you wait.(1/3)
(2/3)________________________________________The hologram displays some sort of entertainment news program or something. At least that is what you though before Ayla appears.“Hello everyone! This is your host Ayla!”“Today I have a new friend Aurora!”Ayla drags Aurora out into view. Aurora stiffly waves at the camera. She looks very uncomfortable.“As you can see she has pink hair how cool is that!”“Now on today’s program we have a reconstruction of how the second lord of hell was defeated, but first let’s check in with our goblin correspondent to see what the tribe is up to.”The camera pans to show a goblin.“Tribe go help chief free slaves,” the goblin says in Japanese.“Wow how cool, good luck master!” Ayla appeals to the camera.The program is an animated version of the events in the second level of hell, rather than commercials you have Ayla interrupting things to give commentary.________________________________________
>>42600439Japanese goblin is so based
(3/3)“What is this?” You ask Hestia when the program finishes.“Rather than your usual reports I thought you may be interested in Ayla’s new project,” She tells you, “we have one hundred percent of the goblin population watching the news reports. They are very happy and proud to see what it is you’ve been doing.”“How much is this revealing?”“In the long term all the secrets will be revealed anyways, doing it in this controlled fashion is increasing the moral and loyalty of the population.”That’s when you notice that a the room is already filled with goblins, all stacked on top of each other to watch the show with you.“Chief strong, ate giant ghost,” the goblins chatter about the program.You check the time and still have thirteen hours, you should probably get back to work.>Help the goblins look around>Search on your own>Let the goblins search and watch more of whatever that was and get research reports>OtherWelcome back to Afterlife Quest!

>>42600439>>42600463>Help the goblins look aroundAs the anon that suggested starting up a news program, that was everything I could ever want the post.Thanks for running with the idea OP! That was pretty cool, I actually thought you were going to ignore it, you didn't sound too into the idea of a news program. Were we also broadcasting in hell?
>>42600463Idea: New sport for the Hell Arena that'll become a show on the news program.Blood Bowl!
“If you say it is fine and the program is helping then expand the programming,” you tell Hestia, “live arena fights would be popular as well I’m sure.”“I am still testing and refining everything but with the tachyons that should be easy to add to the schedule.”The drone is no longer passively engaged in its irritated spin so that is a good sign. Now you just need to get the goblins moving.“Shadow companies, I have brought you here to help free another tribe from slavery,” you tell the goblins, “the human slavers have hidden their operation well so we must find it without being found by them first.”“Yes chief!” The goblins galvanize into action faster than you expected.“Yous great teacher woman gave tribe new guns,” one of the leaders tells you, “tribe make shadows.”They fire the shadow projector and the room is engulfed in pitch black darkness.“Slavers not find tribe now,” the goblins say.Some quick scouting of the area has revealed a few sectors of the city with slightly higher slaver presence. They are all low ranking enforcers so none of them know where the auction is they are just following orders to clear the streets. You’ve found a higher class area that has been walled off from the rest of the city, it is like a gated community. There is an area with warehouses, the large space could offer plenty of space for the auction and storing the slaves. Then there is a place with the buildings more modernized with their exterior all glass. The further from the elevator you go the more the city falls into disrepair, at one point it becomes identical to the lower slums.The goblins will be able to scout the areas you don’t choose to look into yourself.>Gated area>Warehouses>’Modern’ area>Slums>Other
>>42600941>Gated areaCan we get a shadow gun?
We should study goblin shadowmagic. Maybe personally, if we need to. Maybe someday drones can appear out of any dark shadow.
>>42600875I try to work in everyone’s ideas when feasible, even if I don’t see what you’re going for or like an idea doesn’t mean it’s bad.>>42600984Sure the goblins obviously brought one for chief.Shadow projector – This firearm manipulates the photons within a variable area, with more mana the gun can affect a larger area or have the darkness last longer. (mana drain)
>>42600941Idea: Mech Suit Training ProgramWe could employ Evangeline at a mech suit techer and train our troops on how to use them, she's actually really good at it.We might need to convince her, but we could just bribe her with an advanced Mech suit made by Hestia.She might need to convince us to let her have weapons though....
>>42601039teacher*>>42601027We could systematically take out all of the slavers after this, we'll know who they are by reading their minds.We could plant signs at the scene saying stuff like"Burgess does not suffer the slaver"Make them thing Director Burgress is coming after them, but we're really talking about his daughter.

You let most of the goblins start their search as you think about what you know.The slave auction is invitation only.There is only a short gap between the announcement of the location and the auction start.The slavers can afford to clear out an entire floor to hold the auction.They must be hidden somewhere in the richer part of the city, the gates would let them deny entry to unwanted guests and a portion of their clientele would already be close.You take the remainder of goblins with you and sneak towards the gated area, it doesn’t take long to locate a more rundown section of the wall that allows you entry. The goblins spread out and start looking in the buildings that you sense as being unusually full of life.>61 vs DC 60You manage to locate a suspicious building, the goblins say there are caged animals and people hidden inside so this is at the very least the location the slaves are being stored for the auction.You check the time, nine hours left.>Wait to see if the slaves are transported elsewhere>Bring all the goblins to take over the building>Sneak inside yourself to look>Other

You let the other goblins keep looking for now, just in case.“Remain hidden, but keep watch on the slaves,” you tell the goblins.“Yous gots it chief!” The shadow goblins slip away quietly.You then go to infiltrate the building yourself.>47 vs middle dc 45As you sneak in you feel something try to touch your mind. Thankfully you can shield your thoughts and you slip through their mental search undetected.“Damn it where are those little shits,” the mind thinks, they are looking for the shadow goblins but can’t find them as the goblins slip around through the shadows.Then a ninja plunges his sword through where you were just an instant before. Three drones float around him scanning the area. He looks around trying to find you but gives up and runs off to look elsewhere.The slavers have hired some very competent mercenaries it looks like.You still have plenty of time, but with these guys hunting for you can you afford to do nothing?>Hunt down the psychic>Hunt down the ninja>Stay hidden and observe for now>Other
We might want to rebuild the shaman temple to have 13 rooms, and maybe have the names of each tribe near each door. So that the goblins can remember how much they were fractured.
>>42601604>Hunt down the psychicThe psychic is probably coordinating.

>>42601604>Hunt down the psychicHoly shit, these guys aren't fucking around with their guards.I'm unsure if it's a good idea to keep our shadow company here with these two around.Also should we capture them instead of killing them off? They seem highly skilled....

You reach out with your mind gently towards the psychic who is trying to locate you and the goblins.They are already starting to panic a bit, scouring every nook and cranny of the building. They are already slightly afraid of their failure here and they worry about who could have sent these goblins here.>That was damn close>DC was 50 – 10 from circumstance and choice of emotions>42 vs DC 40 passYou help foster their panic and turn it into paranoia, where are the goblins hiding, who sent them, why are they here, how can the hide. Their mind begins racing, they start feeling as though the goblins are taunting them from the shadows. You feel them running through the building trying to find more light, more light to stop the watching eyes.Then you push the fear of failure more and twist it slowly into fear of the watching eyes. At this point your work has become a self perpetuating cycle. Their mind is in tatters as they continue to think up ever more imaginative scenarios of why this is happening. They start lashing out with raw psychic energy, their telekinesis is destroying the area around them.“Shit, psychic overload, I’m on my way,” the ninja passes inches away from you as he runs off to stop the psychic from lashing out any more.A few moments later the psychic’s mind goes still as they are knocked out. You should have an easier time remaining hidden now.>Hunt down the ninja>Try to locate any other mercs>Stay hidden and observe for now>Other
>>42602021>Hunt down the ninjaIf nothing else, see if an emp will take out his electronics.
>>42602021>Hunt down the ninjaWe're in our most pure element.Being a secret agent.Support for an emp btw.
>>42602058Agreed. Very localized EMP should cut off his means of communication
One merc down, who knows how many more, oh right someone here should so you scan their minds. The ninja is too focused on the mission to think about other things. From the gathered slavers you estimate out of the hundred or so lives you feel that there were a total of five mercenaries.You also manage to read off of one mind that this location is where the auction is going to be held and all the slaves are already here.Messing with the psychic’s mind didn’t take up much time, you still have well over eight hours remaining.To his credit the ninja is actually very good at tracking you down, so when you feel his life force draw closer you unleash an EMP.The ninja’s suit freezes up and the drones clatter to the ground deactivated.“What is the hell is going on here?” He rips his helmet off in anger.He is trying to see what went wrong with the drones, you could ambush him if you wanted to.>Kill him>Knock him out>Leave him alone>Start killing all the slavers>Bring all the goblins here>Other
>>42602360>Knock him out>have a few goblins quickly take him to prison, and to fork over his suit and drones to hestia>locate the rest of the mercs and access their capabilities and weaknesses.
>>42602418Second. Have them grab the psychic too. Keep him under for now, until we have a means of making psychic bonds.
>>42602360>Knock him out>>42602418good planwe need to find the other mercenaries
>>42602418I mean assess. Not access.
You hit the ninja hard in the back of the head, and use your draining touch to pull just enough life out of him to keep him knocked out. He seems fairly tough but the suit boosted most of his ability to the height it was at. You collect his helmet, drones and weapons and find some goblins to sneak his unconscious form back to the abandoned building where you set up the portal.“Try to secure the psychic that was looking for you as well,” you sense where the psychic is recovering and direct the goblins to the right area.You sneak through the building avoiding the rank and file slavers trying to locate more mercenaries.“Two of your operatives have been incapacitated, I trust this will not be a problem,” a man says, he seems to be the one in charge here.“We made a deal, there isn’t any issues here,” Another man responds."I don't want any mistakes, or else you will be going up for auction."The head slaver leaves and you move in closer to who appears the mercenary leader.He is clearly not human, the horns and claws are a dead giveaway. From his thoughts you gather that there is a mage and some sort of fighter with the group that you have not yet encountered.“We’ve been doing this job for years, never had a problem before now,” he grumbles to himself and lights a cigar.He hasn’t noticed you yet so you can ambush him too.>Kill him>Knock him out>Follow the head slaver>Other

>>42602845>Follow the head slaver>Other - Telepathy- talk with Mercenary Leader- "This Whole slave Operation is going down! Don't get in my way or I'll do something I'll regret."
The merc leader goes down easier than the ninja. You were expecting a bit more since he is the leader but oh well. It looks like he is partially a demon, so perhaps he can use hellfire and that makes him in charge? A mystery for another time, you get more goblins to carry him off.Then you stalk the life force of the head slaver. He twists his way through the building barking orders to the men. Even with the security issues it seems that the auction is going ahead anyways. You slip into a room after him.He has an actual throne room, he certainly has a high opinion of himself. There is no one else around so you could easily take him out. He stops in front of the throne, picks up a scepter and spins around to face you.“Why don’t you come out from your hiding place little rat,” he says, “those five may be bumbling idiots but I can sense the beating of your heart.”His eyes glow with power.“To me my minions!” He yells.Five people are summoned from nowhere; the ninja and merc leader are among them.“Awaken and fight!” The slaver commands and all five of the mercenaries recover and are forced to try and kill you.>Your status - 67/67 hp, 45/45 mana, 65/65 external mana>Enemy status – Head slaver and five mercenaries.Well shit, so much for taking them out stealthily. >Knives>Gun>Fists>Spells>Ability>Other

>>42603666I did think of that, but it sounds too much like a shadowrun, we'd be the one controling him, not anything in the void, we'd only be using it to erase his mind.
Preparing your magic you release a twisted combination of Holy and Fear auras, then you sacrifice your own life to draw power. As your skin turns an unhealthy pale white and black veins pulse under your skin you draw your gun and open fire at the head slaver, as soon as you do the mage casts some sort of barrier spell. Just to be on the safe side you prep even more magic and unleash an emp.>50 vs lower dc 45 passWith the wind howling around you magical bonds appear and attempt to bind the mage and the slaver.Your shots shatter the magic the mage cast, but then the slaver holds up his scepter and the shots are absorbed into it along with your binding magic. “You dare to challenge me with that pathetic magic?” The slaver asks you, “fear my arcane wrath!”A massive orb of acid is hurled at you and the mercenaries scatter to avoid being hit.Your flesh sizzles and burns as it heals from the acid. When acid has subsided you open fire at the slaver again but he just laughs as your shots are absorbed by the scepter.>Your status – 18->33/33 hp, 43->45/45 mana, 56/65 external mana – hasted, holy aura>Active spells: Dark gift 2/3, aura of fear 2/3>Enemy status – Head slaver and five mercenaries.Choose Two>Knives>Gun>Fists>Spells>Ability>Other

You unleash more magic trying to get an advantage on the group you’re fighting. Your knives pulse with elemental energy as the holy guidance of fervor settles about you. Then your sides split open and lava pours out. The lava forms into a secondary pair of arms like the first lord of hell had. The mage tries to kill you by blasting you with a burst of technologically supercharged electricity.>54+4 vs middle dc 55 passYou run directly into the mage’s lighting attack to throw off the others, who are still fighting the effects of your fear aura.

You lava arms work as both sword and shield as the three remaining mercs attack you. The lava bubbles and splashes as the leader’s hellfire enhanced claws try to cut into them. It appears that the arms are completely immune to hellfire though. It hurts significantly more when the fighter nearly slices through the lava arm of your other side. The psychic just hits you with random debris and even a few things taken from the mage, but his psychic power seems a bit dulled by the berserk state so he can’t hurt you.>60+4 vs higher dc 55 passYou catch the leader and fighter’s attacks then return them with quick slices from your knives. You throw the now dead part demon leader at the psychic as you slice and punch the fighter to death.With all his help now dead you can fight the slaver directly, no more tricks a skinless demon would say.“It took me a long time to collect those slaves,” the head slaver says, “but their corpses can serve just as well.”He slams the scepter into the ground again and a bloody mist flows out. The mist swirls around the corpses and enters their mouths.Then they return to life as some sort of twisted fusion of technology and undead creature.>Your status – 24->67/67 hp, 35->45/45 mana, 34/65 external mana – holy aura, lava arms>Active spells: ignite weapon 4/6, fervor 4/6, monstrous transformation 1/3>Enemy status – Head slaver and five reanimated corpses>Knives>Gun>Fists>Spells>Ability>OtherOh right soul charge, not like you'll ever use it before it hits 1000.448/1000

>>42604781The spell is still active, so why not you can keep them, but you’d miss on all the other fun opportunities.

The corpses shuffle towards you in an attempt to kill you. You try to counter by controlling the undead with magic. Three of the corpses shudder and come under your control, you have them block the others as you attack the slaver.>60+8 vs highest dc 60You fists collide with a barrier of some kind that glows bright red as you smash against it.“So long as I hold these artifacts you cannot touch me,” the slaver taunts you, “now my slaves return to my control!”His eyes glow bright red as he holds the scepter aloft. You feel the magic you controlled the undead with get severed.“You are a mage of some talent I see,” the slaver says, “but can you fight the embrace of death?”He slams the scepter into the ground again and the undead shuffling towards you are torn to shreds.The flesh flies through the air and surrounds the slaver as some sort of grotesque armor.>Your status – 67/67 hp, 35->45/45 mana, 14/65 external mana – holy aura, lava arms>Active spells: ignite weapon 3/6, fervor 3/6, monstrous transformation 5/6>Enemy status – Head slaver – shielded, corpse armor>AwarenessYou are positive that when you attacked him that his shield was nearly broken, he must be using this spell to buy time to restore the shield.>Knives>Gun>Fists>Spells>Ability>Other

You draw on your own life force to summon forth both your living weapons, and then you rush forward to keep the pressure up so the slaver can’t recover his shielding.>56+8 vs dc 30Your halberd cuts through the shield with a flash of blood red light. The corpse armor is torn apart as you nearly slice through to slaver’s chest. Then you follow up with a thrust with your rapier, by chance you strike the chain of the necklace the slaver was wearing. The blood red amulet clatters to the ground and the slaver’s eyes go wide.“Impossible, you will die now!” He yells at you.The corpse armor begins to glow red as he holds his scepter up.The flesh explodes into a fine mist of blood that quickly swirls around you.

You decide to keep a low profile and loot everything in the building with the goblins while you wait until the auction time.>Four thousand gold coins, three hundred platinum coins, fifteen large willow mouse figurines, ninety very small iron locks, one fancy painting, fifty pieces of jewelry, one dark blue shawl, one small mirror, twenty hammers, one pair of opal dice, five bones, one tiny skull, one bird skull, one platinum necklace with a amethyst pendant, one drum, thirty lead nose rings, thirteen garnets, two pairs of topaz gem earrings, one large steel locket, one vibrant blue candle, one platinum circlet, one small sapphire, *one arcane tome*, one piece of obsidian jewelry, seven lavender potions, eleven very bright blue skirts, *twenty 'herbs'*, one small dark gold hat, five pink pearl necklaces, *slaver's amulet*, *slaver's scepter*, *slaver's ring* and *one sparkling clear stone*.When the time for the auction comes nothing happens. No people start arriving and the slaves remain trapped in their cages.You wait a little bit longer just to be sure but it looks like killing the head slaver has completely disrupted their plans.So you go to where the slaves are held and begin freeing everyone. The large majority of the slaves are goblins from the white tribe, but a number of humans, mostly children, and animals are also freed.Everyone is very scared and are unsure what to do. They can’t return from where they came from or the slavers will find them again.“Yous free us?” A goblin with white paint on him asks you.“Yes,” you show the goblin your amulet and he is shocked but examines it closely.“I am shaman of the white tribe, yous free us so the tribe will follow yous as our new chief,” the goblin shaman tells you, “tribe was all captured this time, no place to return to.”What are you going to do with the slaves?>Turn them loose in the streets>Take everyone back to your city>Kill them, end their suffering>Other

You open the letter against your better judgment.________________________________________Dear Villain,I write to inform you that I have traveled far and have uncovered the means to unleash holy powers. Being a gentleman of the highest caliber I must inform you of you impending doom so that you may adequately prepare. One third of my journey has been completed, when I finish I will be able to defeat your demonic powers without even trying. Then I will sever your foul mind control and rescue all the beautiful ladies you have kidnapped. My darling Evangeline will be rescued at any cost!Yours truly,Marquis Gabriel Armstrong, the Jewel of the Western Front!P.S. You will be unable to try and insult my writing for I have enchanted this letter to burn to nothingness as soon as you read it. Take care not to burn yourself.________________________________________Sure enough the letter burns away as soon as you finish reading it. Maybe he is learning something at least.By now the shamans should have all met and the tribes should all be fully united.There is a strange lack of goblins around the city, only imps fly around calling lord slayer after you as you make your way to the shamans’ temple.You see why when you arrive at the Lakeside District, all the goblins are gathered around the temple and are engaged in some sort of party. To your surprise there are thirteen massive troll like goblins presiding over everything. Unlike the monstrous goblins you encountered before at the blue tribe the shamans seem to have complete control over the transformation.(1/2)
(2/2)The shamans announce your presence and the goblins part allowing you a path directly to the shamans.“Chief yous have united all the goblin tribes both fallen and lost,” the shamans boom as one unified voice. Their life forces seem to be linked in some way creating some sort of distributed consciousness.“Please hold forth yous amulet!” The shamans say.You hold your Bonetooth amulet up to the goblins.“On this day to honor yous achievements and leadership of the goblins,” the shamans announce, your amulet begins to hum with magical power and floats into the air, “we hereby name you not as chief, but king of all goblins!”The shamans each in turn raise their hands and beam some sort of magic towards the amulet. The magical power bombards the area and you notice a large number of drones intently monitor what is happening.The amulet glows with a blinding light as it floats back down to your hands. When you catch the amulet there is a blinding flare of light and you seem to know that no one else will be able to wear this new amulet.>Kingship amulet obtainedThe amulet is still clearly a piece of carved bone but there is a large crest at the top detailing the symbols and colors of all thirteen tribes. The usual Bonetooth emblem sits below the new details.As the magic subsides the shamans collapse their mana and stamina spent. Their disciples rush to help them. Then all hell breaks loose as the goblins turn the entire city into a massive party. You doubt that anything you can do will end this celebration early.>Enjoy the party (time skip)>Bring everyone into the celebration (time skip)>Check on the progress in the second level of hell>Go visit someone>Open the letter>Research>Other

>>42608703>Bring everyone into the celebration (time skip)Fuck it, we deserve it. I'd like to get these items and shit checked out, and then check on hell for a bit, but that might not happen this thread.I'd like to hand that slave master's head off to Hestia though. We aint done with the fucker.

>>42608916Fashionably late>implying the party doesnt last a year
>>42608930eeh we could explain that away by telling them we're attempting to reeducate them and show them a different way to live.
>>42609014They might be the kill first ask questions later kind of law people.
>>42609014Oh, true enoughHell, just inviting them should be good enough, they can always choose not to attendJust make sure we tell them the plan for the demons in the invite
You know you can’t stop the party, so instead you spread the party over into hell. In a rare moment of unity goblins, humans, demons, and even the tribe’s animals all party together in a seemingly endless festival. Part way through the party the researchers discover that the ‘herb’ you found was actually a strain of magical super strong weed. The goblins’ Sickeater influence takes over and they love the new drugs. At some point in the drug induced haze you think you may have used the law orb to try and invite them, but there wasn’t a crusade and a lot of dead demons when you come to, so they must have not come.The party lasts several months, several months of no work happening. At least Hestia kept everything moving along smoothly. The twins are happy when things calm down as they are quite obviously pregnant at this point. You don’t think any of your other girls are pregnant but a lot of the other researchers hooked up and you sense that a lot more children will be on the way. The goblin population has also greatly expanded, so it is a good think you can grow nearly unlimited food just about instantly.One thing is for sure, everyone is going to be happy and healthy for quite some time after this amazing party. > [ End ]Time to end.

>>42610799Let's go ahead and learn all of them, assuming the book isn't warded.>Dat AmuletFucking amazing. Saving the goblins so worth.And it grow with us? My dick can only get so hard OP.
Oh right have some ability things too while I write up the spells.>Ability thingsMental Compulsion: Rank 8This ability allows you to force organic life to think whatever you want. If your target fails a will check equal to 50% of your willpower they permanently believe whatever you forced them to think. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.Giant form: Rank 3The magic of the goblins' transformation has been transferred to you. You now have the ability to increase your size by 90%. While enlarged your physical stats increase by 50%. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.
>>42611003Giant form is kinky
>>42610799New Research project for ReggieSymbiote hand, think something along the lines of the Symbiote from Vampire hunter DMostly it'll add a second mouth to one of our hands so we can use stuff like lazer and ice breath from our palm.
>>42611003>While enlarged your physical stats increase by 50%.So none of that "you get bigger, you get slower" bullshit?If we get bigger our speed increases as well, yes? (I don't expect us to pick locks with giant sausages fingers, mind you, I just think that whole "oh, he's twice as big, now he's somehow only able to move half as fast as he could before!" shit)
>>42611142Yes you get faster. Some things may be easier to do while not huge though.You would be a bit clumsy with the distances your limbs move all changed, but you have geo spatial intuition which can easily cover for that.

>>42612032All it does is summon a poodle that never shuts up and can't be harmed or silenced in any way.Truly, a fate worse than death.
There was a time skip of let’s say two months.If anyone is still around this would be a good time to suggest research.Here is a list of things that are being researched and will be complete:Force-Energy structuresHolographic weaponry Tachyon communications Feng Shui - 余り物には福があるHell flora research Advanced casino managementEconomic incentive structuresAdvanced broadcasting propagandaIron cupDecks of cardsQuill pensteleport jammingteleport scrambling‘herbs’Slaver artifactsSparkling stoneThat is a lot of things.>>42612032If you can find something like that. Tslah already knows one but it is impossible to learn it from her.you may be interested in the lich's spellbook if you want an ultimate spell
>>42612242i want to research an ultimate canon for our super heavy suit with explosive shells that have hover control and onboard targeting systems with maximum emp proofing, Also potentially putting mana fusion reactor into our suit to gurren lagann it up turn our life into mana and then turn it into raw force.so:>super heavy suit smart EX-shell canon>suit mana fusion reactor with mana reserves
>>42612242>researchFamiliar magic and how to break their bondsBlood magic and how to protect against itParasites that have been listed beforeWe should let Hestia study us againSince this is a 3 month time skip can we get any trainin inbetween partying with the goblins?
>>42612242Maybe look into magic tattoos?
>>42612242Complete study of goblins and their abilities.Optimal ai components.Psychic abilities study.Unenchantment and uncursing.Hybridization done with the now complete goblins.Genetic memories research.Hellish abilities and hellfire study.Divine abilities and holy aura study.Law orb study.Biocomputers.Communal mind implants for whole communities sharing information freely and instantly.Something for even better scanners.
>>42612529We should probably train in Giant form to get even moar BULK.Also get Hestia on creating VR training with holograms and training interface suits>advanced VR training:>through the use of the interface suit and holograms, Hestia is able to design virtual training missions to help sharpen your skills, these mission will be designed with previous data found on encounter, lower tier mission will also be given to special goblin troop to train elite soldier
>>42612242If we go over 100 in a stat from the giant form boost, do we gain the special ability associated with that stat while we are in giant form?
>>42612669Yes, but I wont tell you what it is.
>>42612725i wonder what the upgrade could be...will you tell us what it is when we turn into giant form?
>>42612242Honestly I'd like to take some time and train our Polyglot ability using Hestia's learning program so we can get rid of the implant for it that takes up one of our slots.I'd like to also see if we can train our Implant and symbiote mastery abilities when hestia studies us again so we can take on more implants.>>42612725physical stats would be Strength, Constitution, and Dexterity right?
>>42612800more like speed,strength and constitution, i believe
>>42612799No, you'll have to legitimately get to 100 to find out. I also will not tell you what it is when companions reach 100, which a few have.>>42612800Yes, Str, Con, Dex.
>>42612725In giant form, would we be able to surpass our current stat cap? Meaning if we got our if we got our Strength or Dexterity to 200, and then used giant form would that stat increase above 200?
>>42612984Yes, your caps are doubled for str, con and dex when in giant form. Companions fully updated and it looks like Aurora is getting a sheet now too. Ayla likes her too much to send her away now.
