You are 1 of 5 Xenomorph eggs laying dormant in an Alien craft of unknown origin, you do not know which species the craft belongs.You are a...A) Praetorian facehugger.B) Just your average facehugger.C) Blank.
C. Shits about to get weird.
>>43386039>A) Praetorian facehugger.A yeah baby let's get this show on the road.
To clarify the system we will be using.I'll have you guys vote on an option and we'll use a d100 system, similar to DH.First 2 rolls only.The higher the better.
Quest in the title field next time, please. Have fun though
>>43386039Usualy an infestation starts with either a few drones or warriors doesn't it?
>>43386069Because this is a Xenomorph quest and Xenos are a hive mind, you will be playing with 2 to 3 different main PCs, I found this would be better suited to making a quest revolving around this setting.
>>43386053>>43386048Need a tie breaker, for the next write up.
>>43386081Aliens are like ants and such, they have different purpose in the Hive, the warrior would be like Big Chap in the 1st movie, big and powerful.Drones are smaller and weaker than warriors.Paetorians are scaled up warriors whose job is to protect the queen, they don't appears in any of the movies, only in the comics/vidyas.
>>43386106Write up coming.
>>43386110No wait, Big Chap was a drone.
You suddenly come to consciousness.An unstoppable, primal instinct takes over you, but fades as quickly as it came upon you.For all intents and purposes, you are the first sentient and intelligent facehugger to ever walk the universe.You take a moment to gather yourself, before leaving your egg.You know that you are destined for greatness, your large stature would give another being this impression if one were to see you.You are a Praetorian facehugger, capable of impregnating another creature with an embryo which would mature into an adult Praetorian strain Xenomorph, and eventually a Queen.Foot steps echo around the room, your egg stirs...A host approaches.The footsteps stop; "Delta 499. this is Survey 6. I'm not sure what i'm looking at here, but it's definitely not Human by design. I recommend you contact the Medical and Sciences division back at colonial 1, this is HUGE!" "Roger that Survey 6, get some footage and report back in 30, Deta 499 out."The foot steps continue they sound as if they are passing below you.What do you do?A) Free form. what do?
Here's what a Praetorian looks like, note the bitching head crest.
I'm writing this as i go, if this takes off, I'll make sure to do some pre writing before part 2, to narrow down time between posts.
>>43386141Not much we can do as a facehugger? open the egg and hope whoever's looking into isn't wearing an helmet?
>>43386175Facehuggers can go through helmets though, right? Did it in the first movie. I vote we go on the offensive.
>>43386195If what you say is true, then I'll go with offensive too.
>>43386175>>43386175>>43386195"Delta 499, I think I see something... Organic, above me, in the vents. I'm going to take a look."The room is silent."Delta 499, do you copy?"Nothing."Damn radio's out!"The steps stop directly beneath you and a lound clanging noise is heard, followed by what sounds like something sliding downwards. eventually a figure peers over the top of your open egg.Following your instincts you pounce.You melt through the protective glass covering the Humans face and latch yourself to the head with ease.You feel your conciousness shift, leaing the facehugger you once called yourself, briefly.You know reside within the comatose body of the unfortunate sod, unlucky enough to peek into your egg.Time skip... 24 hours.
>>43386233(Sorry about the typos, guys. As I mentioned i'm writing this as I go, and I don't have a lot of time to proof read before I post.)24 hours later.You start feeling claustrophobic, constricted. You need to get out.You Burst through the survey team members body, and... Find yourself blinded by surgical lights above an operating theatre.Activity surrounds you, you see multiple people, panicking, running around, staring at you.You're also, very fucking hungry.Around you you see several small ventilation shafts, as well as an open door, to which someone is currently running.What do?
>Xenomorph questI am interested.
>>43386273Hungry. Well, I guess we have to eat the people around us then.
>>43386294You are about 50cm long, and 5cm thick.
>>43386233>"Delta 499, do you copy?">Nothing.>"Damn radio's out!"I had a chuckle. Seems like they have more problems than we do.
>>43386309Oh right, chestburster. Fleeing into the vents should be good then.
>>43386313Problems. Yuatja tend to be problematic, yes.
>>43386327need a tiebreaker, between this and "(sic)eat everyone".>>43386294
>>43386338I vote flee.
>>43386273hide and get big, can always go back to nom on the corpse we bursted out off
>>43386338Vents, definitely vents.
>>43386233>You now reside within the comatose body of the unfortunate sodkek'd
>>43386431Embarrassing, i forgot to include the text. Taking this opportunity of confusion and panic, you make a break for the nearest ventilation shaft.You make it into a vent and take note of your surroundings, you are completely capable of moving through these vents without any trouble, for now. You feel the need to find food and begin your transition towards adulthood. Following the scent of meat you find yourself hypnotically attracted towards some kind of white room filled with cages of animals, who collectively lose their shit at the site of you.You feast.Time Skip 2 days.Having had ample time to feast on the animals, you have grown to the size of a regular drone sized Xenomorph.The Animals have been exhausted and you still have growing to do. But as it stands right now. Perhaps your could expand your colony, if only you were to gather live prey for the other 4 eggs.What do?
>>43386450Start stalking them, learn their schedules and find place to ambush the fuckers.
Funny, just finished marathoning Alien and Aliens. Gotta love divine provenance.Use the vents to stalk around, find someone alone to pick off.
>>43386465This. We need to play smart right now.
>>43386450Two days to grow seven feet? Wow, that's amazing. How strong are we though?
>>43386498pretty stonk by human standards, Praetorians are temy/dreadnought tier by 40k standards
>>43386536>pretty stonk by human standards, Praetorians are temy/dreadnought tier by 40k standardsI done fucked it up, if one's Termy tier, he's more than pretty stronk...
>>43386465>>43386494>>43386490You have been able to ascertain, that station is primarily a scientific vessel, very lightly armed, with 3 armed personnel, one of whom is not alive, or at least not Human like the other 10 individuals.The atmosphere on board is tense, but you feel safe knowing they believe you are 50cms long and not a 'serious' threat.The medical bay is usually occupied by 1 person, someone who resides within for long periods of time, un-interrupted.You...A) Observe the medical wing.B) Observe the Inhuman security individual.C) Go elsewhere.
Observe the Medical Wing
>>43386498I'm streamlining the growing portions of the quest, because it would be borring otherwise.You are a 7 foot praetorian adolescent, and are incredibly strong and agile, even by xenomorph standards.
>>43386593Inhuman? That sounds interesting. Lets learn more about this little anomaly.
>>43386619>>43386606Tie breaker necessary.
>>43386619Lets go see it then. I'm curious too.
>>43386637>>43386619Using the ventilation systems, you carefully, and meticulously make your way towards the armory of the outpost station.Looking down into what you can only assume is a checkpoint for the security room, you see the inhuman person staring intently at a screen.The person is alive, but is not breathing. You do not understand how this is so, but assume correctly that your species CANNOT propagate using this individual.Do you.A) Silently drop down. (d100 required)B) Continue to observe the synthetic.C) Go elsewhere.
>>43386688BLets see what Roboman is up to
>>43386688>B) Continue to observe the synthetic.
>>43386688Can we see what room(s) he's looking at in the security feed?
>>43386703B it is.Write up inc.
>>43386713You sit and wait patiently in the darkness of the ventilation shaft.The Synthetic person, is looking at the medical lab from which you graciously burst forth into this world from.It looks like you made quite a stir 2 days ago and people are still trying to work out exactly what happened.You hear a voice cut through silence, “Fred, Daniel and I have just gone into the holding cells, and it is a FUCKING MESS, I can take an educated guess at what caused this, but everything is dead. What the fuck was that thing?”“Jamie, are you okay, is anything moving over there?!” You hear the Synthetic now named Fred reply as he quickly stands and rushes towards the armoury door.AJmmie responds over the intercom “No, no sign of the… ‘Thing’, can you grab a rifle from the armoury and meet us at the holding cells? Just in case.”“Already on it, 5 minutes away.” Fred begins to reach for a badge on his shirt.What do?A) Jump down silently and advance upon Fred. (d100 needed[with advantage due to his haste. Cannot crit fail])B) Remain above and continue observing.C) Go elsewhere.
He's of no use, let's take him out.
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>43386764Remove synthetic from the premise

>>43386828>>43386783With Fred distracted, you are easily able to hop out of the vent without making a sound, you nfurl your tail as you advance upon the unaware Synthetic, and you strike.Fred reaches for his badge and swipes the card and topples over shortly afterwards, his head having been removed several seconds ago. No one knows what has transpired, for now. You have 5 minutes, and the armoury is now open.What do?A) Visit the medical wing.B) Visit the Holding cells.C) Other.
>>43386842AWe're too young for group combat
>>43386853Are we though?
>>43386861You are only 2 days old, and not fully grown, although at your age and being a praetorian strain you are ahead of the bell curve when compared to a basic drone caste xenomorph.
>>43386842C. Drag the synthetic into the armory and close the door.
>>43386881Jesus, feel free to fix this up, I made this using my phone. haha.

>>43386928Well I would assume we have another vote after we do A
>>43386916Noted.>>43386928>>43386918>>43386916You look over your handiwork and feel somewhat relieved knowing the small outpost is sufficiently incapable of repelling your fledgling hive now it is without advanced weaponry.You return to the ventilation shafts, and notice it is becoming increasingly difficult to traverse the relatively claustrophobic confines.You are getting bigger.You now sit above the holding cells, which used to be filled with a plethora of alien species, now consumed to placate your insatiable hunger.2 people are outside the main door, waiting for Fred.What do?A) Observe and see what they do.B) Jump down and alert them to your presence.C) Other.
>>433870049000 hours in paint.
>>43387004Observe I say
>>43387004A) Observe and see what they do.Pay particular attention to their 'vocalizations'. If we can try to reproduce such things in the future, we might be able to fool humans into walking into traps.
>>43387004A) Observe and see what they do.
>>43387023>>43387019 2 for observe, going to duck out for a smoke, and when I get back i'll do the write up.For everyones information, due to a genetic fault, or evolutionary trait you are the only Xenomorph with higher thought, self awareness and intelligence.
>>43387036Now if that translate to being able to understand and utilise human equipements, we could just shut down the life support system long enough to put every human out cold and gather them in front of the eggs, instead of running the risk of one of 'em activating it's latent Ripley's badass gene.
>>43387066Your understanding of human tech is none, yo are simply very intelligent, perhaps you could observe Humans and learn about the operations of the technology on Colonial 1.
>>43387036You remain inside the ventilation shaft and continue to o serve the 2 humans outside the main door.After a 1 minute or 1 of the 2 the people outside reach for a black device on their shoulder and you are able to hear the following…“Fred, where are you, it’s been 10 minutes?”No reply.“Fred, FRED!”The person talking turns to the other and says “The fucking radio is out again, can you go see what Fred is doing and I’ll go inside and investigate!”“James are you sure, you saw what that ‘thing’ did to Aaron!”James replies “It’s Jamie, and yes, I was in the room. It’s okay, I have my side arm. Now please, go and get Fred.” Jamie reaches for a badge on his breast and opens the door as Daniel runs off in the direction of the armoury.Jamie begins going through the Holding cells searching for whatever caused the mess within.His side arm is holstered.What do?A) Continue to observe.B) Jump down and surprise the lone man.C) Other.
>>43387114>A) Continue to observe.
>>43387114>B) Jump down and surprise the lone man.Get him alive and drag him into ventilation for happy fun time

3 for B, write up inc.
>>43387124Seconding happy fun time, we can go in and grab his mate immediately after.
With Daniel out of the way, you take this opportunity to surprise the lone man.You Burst from the ventilation shaft, and catch Jamie unaware.Hearing the sudden noise, the undisciplined security officer, panics and reaches for his side arm as he looks up at you, bewildered, he hesitates for a moment...A) Rush him and try to knock him unconscious.(d100)B) Other.

As you land, you transfer your momentum into a forward leap and make contact with the frightened lone man, James is barrelled into the nearby wall and knocked unconscious.You operator as fuck.You pick up the body and make your way back to ventilation shaft as you do so an alarm goes off and you hear over the loudspeakers a familiar voice “FREDS DEAD, SOMETHING KILLED HIM AND RASHED THE ARMOURY, ALL STAFF MAKE YOUR WAY TO THE ARMOURY, BE CARFUL, DANIEL OUT!”You take this moment of respite to gather yourself and make haste to…A) The other 4 eggs on the Alien craft outside the station.B) The armoury.C) Other.

Knowing you have only a few minutes to ensure the host is impregnated, you make haste towards your hatchery.Instinctually you are able to discern the location of your original location and after exiting the station you find that the habitat is acceptable for the Human hosts, perhaps the suit from earlier was just a protective measure, none the less, you present the body to a unhatched egg and after a few seconds, you have an implanted embryo growing within the body of the ‘former’ James.What do?A) Return the station and collect more hosts.B) Hang around for the larvae to mature.C) Collect food from the station.D) Other.
>>43387266I'm working night shift for the next 5 days, so I'll be running for 2-3 hours 6pm CST Australian time.I'll make a twitter after this thread if it is archived and post the link so you guys can be alerted.Only if this is popular and picked up, I mean.
>>43387280>C) Collect food from the station.Do we know how delicate the eggs might be? How long could they potentially last if moved? How long can a facehugger last once hatched? Because, if we carry one that we coax into hatching, we can throw it at someone's face for quick impregnation.
>>43387280C. Collect food from the station and bring it back to the Larvae so it can eat it when it hatches.Collect more hosts after it hatches.
>>43387280>C) Collect food from the station.We should also chain the guy up in case he wakes up prematurely.
>>43387280B and if some fucker comes to help that impregnated faggot you impregnate him too.Isolate and impregnate is the way to go buddy.
C it is.You make your way back to the station to collect food for the growing Xenomorph within James, you make sure you secure the Comatose body using secretions of organic matter, although you believe there is nothing James could do if he were somehow to awaken and remove the deceased facehugger.Back on board colonial 1, you take stock of the current situation, the atmosphere is increasingly tense and paranoid, NO ONE walks by themselves, and with only 9 of the original 11 individuals left alive, all the personnel you observe from the ventilation shafts are armed with either a side arm or a rudimentary flame device.You notice that the Holding cells have been sealed shut and bariccaed, perhaps this could serve as a nesting ground.You make your way towards…A) The armoury.B) The medical wing.C) The residences (There are four, choose one; going clockwise, 1, 2, 3 or 4.) Refer to the OP Image>>43386593D) Other.
>>43387343>B) The medical wing.
>>43387343>C) The residences 1Their nests. Someone might lower their guard.
>>43387343B) The medical wing.
>>43387343Forget the armory they are already armed.Go to the medical wing, maybe we can find some fucked up people or whatever to infect.B
>>43387360Wait, scratch that. Can we make an observation? This environment has several unique conditions, undoubtedly for the comfort of these organisms. Oxygen, temperature, gravity, and light. Light is coming from shiny things in the ceiling. Could we... kill them around the station? Create darkness everywhere we can before fleeing back to the vents. Sabotage.
>>43387343B. Medical wing
>>43387390Lightly armed, due to your diligence and forethought, no one on the station has anything bigger than a side arm, and the rudimentary flame weapons are more than likely jury rigged and unreliable, probably.
>>43387403 B wins, write up inc.
Heading towards the Medical wing of Colonial 1, you notice that security around this part of the facility is light, You take the moment to observe the wing and notice several beds for patients, and supply closets for medical supplies, the rooms is fairly roomy for its size.There is only one medical professional from your observations and he seems very panicked and paranoid, maybe you could make this work to your advantage?Only 3 people are around this side of the station, and within the medical facility itself only 2 people are currently residing within.One of whom is in deep and panicked discussion with the other.You are able to overhear, a few words… “Xeno… Colonial… Inbound…navy…infestation… hive.”You get the overwhelming feeling of dread, what does this mean for you?A) Observe.B) Drop down silently (d100).C) Burst forth from the ventilation shaft and surprise them(Surprise round).D) Other.
>>43387445>Only 3 people are around this side of the station, and within the medical facility itself only 2 people are currently residing within.Find the third
>>43387445>A) Observe.Take the time to look at the physical details of each person - try to notice things any particular flaws from previous injury or other possible health defects. Then, look at the surroundings - what can be used to our advantage? Is there cover from their sidearms, or things which we could potentially throw to clock someone at a distance? Can something be tampered with around here?Basically, go super-observational on this shit.
A) Observe. We can't risk doing something stupid and alerting a third person that is going to shoot the shit out of us. Let's sit and listen and hope we can notice where the third person is and if he/she is patrolling or something on those lines.
>>43387445>A) Observe.Observe and learn.>yfw this Xenomorph starts talking
>>43387445Obsere. Lets just use the paranoia of them to our advantage: someone will make a mistake evenactually+ Can we go outside the craft and destroy those nasty human communication devices?
You take the moment to observe the facility and see the 3rd person waiting outside the medical bay holding a flame device, the door is currently closed but looks like it’s been jury rigged to open at a moment’s notice.The other 2 within the facility itself are both uninjured, although the Doctor who is panicked and talking quickly is wearing a leg brace, he is unarmed.The other person is holding a pistol in her left hand by her side and ndding her head in acknowledgment of the doctors words, she looks scared and worried, she is wearing a jumpsuit and a tool belt.The room has very little cover, but you think you could reach the 2 inside with very little effort if you took a running start.You examine your options and you…A) Take a few steps back and jump towards the Doctor.B) Take a few steps back and jump towards the jumpsuited armed woman.C) Go elsewhere (Where).D) Other.
>>43387523>C) Go elsewhere (Where).Make noise in order to lure one or more of them away then pounce the doc
>>433875312 are armed, one with a pistol within the medical bay, one outside the door with the flamer.You are able to hear talk about a colonial navy and xenomorphs, that is all.
>>43387523D) Try to make noise somehow, making the Doctor panic and luring the guard inside. After that using the vents rush towards where the guards was and wait for him to come back then go for him as silently as possible without the two idiots in the medical bay noticing.
>>43387523D: Try damage the wirings to take out power (to disable door opening and lights) and then take out the one lonely person outside?
>>43387523>C) Go to the Power/Operations area
>>43387552>>433875512 for D. 1 minute, then write up inc.

You decide the most prudent option is to cause a distraction, so you make may towards the central power station of Colonial 1.As you arrive, you find the place lacking any security, easy pickings.A) Drop down and start breaking shit.B) Other.
>>43387595Time to fuck some shit up.
>>43387595>A) Drop down and start breaking shit.
>>43387595B) Carefully look through the power station and attempt to learn how it works by disassembling it piece by piece. Hide the pieces deep within the ventilation system in case you want to reassemble it later for some reason.
>>43387595This feels like the heart of this metallic beast that keeps our prey alive: we cannot kill it as it would kill our future-hosts of the Hive.B: Try to disable doors so the prey have harder time moving around? Later we can use this nice and warm location for a hive!
>>43387595A. Break shit quietly
>>43387608>>43387603These work for me. Let's find out how it ticks, and then try to cut the specific power to doors and lights.
>>43387617Are we even engineers that we have this knowledge?
>>43387595>>43387617seconding, its better than stupidly breaking everything
>>43387625It is like wounding our prey: Damage stuff close to the part we want to wound: In case of doors, wires and such near it. We are strong?Not the glowing big heart-generator in the middle of the door!
This your calling, you drop out of the ventilation shaft above you and begin slicing up cables and smashing monitors, your rampage has a noticeable effect on the lighting within the station as the lights begin to dim, until eventually a black out shuts down the power, you hear a siren alarm as a mechanical voice echoes from the comms systems, “Fusion meltdown emergency procedures in place, emergency shut down in effect, back up generators online, station electrical report to station power for damage control”. This message repeats 3 times before it ceases.The red lights within the station burst to life and illuminate the room, you are in your element.Current Objectives: 1) Collect food for the embryo within James.2) Collect hosts for the other 3 eggs.3) Grow a queen.4) Grow the hive.What do?A) Head back to medical.B) Go elsewhere.
>>43387653I thought careful disassembly won
>>43387653>3) Grow a queen.
>>43387659You caused the plant to shut down, not explode, emergency generators are online and the plant is currently down for the foreseeable future.
>>43387653A. Get the doctor and the lady.
A) Back to medical
>>43387653B) We need to spread more fear to the prey, so they make mistakes and we find more hosts for the remaining eggs
>>43387653Back to medical. Just got into this thread and damn, the AVP:E nostalgia is strong.

You return to the ventilation shaft, it is noticeably tight, you do not believe you can maintain your travels through the vent shafts for much longer.You are growing larger.You return to the medical bay and notice that there is now only 2 people within the wing, the 3rd whom was stationed at the door has now taken the place of the woman in the jumpsuit, the Doctor is in the corner of the room on his knees cowering and muttering to himself, the person with the flamer is looking about wildly and excessively paranoid.It’s now or never…A) Burst from the vents and charge the man with the flamer.

>>43387789Yes, although it would be a bit awkward, like using a gun made for hands significantly smaller than your own, but most Xenomorph body types have a hand that could manipulate a human built firearm.
>>43387830Looking at the panicked man, you raedy yourself, in the blink of an eye you burst out of the ventilation shaft, grab the vent cover and loose it expertly at the panicked and now surprised and frightened man with the flamer.Your aim is true, and the cover flies straight into the weapon the man is wielding, ripped from his arms it clatters uselessly to ground. You are now standing in the medical bay facing two unarmed individuals, one cowering in the corner, the other suddenly without a weapon to fight back.He glances at you and then at his flame thrower, he moves for the flamer.You…A) Rush at the suddenly disarmed security guard. (d100)B) Rush the Doctor.C) Other.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>43387863>A) Rush at the suddenly disarmed security guard. (d100)I'm surprised that his piece of shit flamer didn't just get destroyed by thatThough, for all we know, the internal components might be busted?

I want to make it clear, for all involved, I ask for the selection we make, THEN I ask for rolls, I only count the first 2.
>Turn off the lights>Thread goes dark
You rush the guard, moving incredibly fast, you reach him… Just as he grabs his flamer.Turning towards you as you leer over the top of him, he presses the trigger of his weapon and… it explodes.The guard goes up in flames as the fireball envelopes you, it hurts. A lot.The guard is dead, but the Doctor has found his spine and makes a break for the door, sprinting past you!You…A) Finish the guard off. B) Rush the Doctor.C) Other.
>>43387942C:Use my tail to cut his head off and then charge the doctor.
>>43387942B) Rush the Doctor.The guard's stated to be dead man
>>43387942B: This host is too damaged, lets get the Doctor
>>433879521 C1 BThe guard is barely alive, but probably not a threat.
>>43387942B) Rush the Doctor.
>>43387936Them skeletons, man. They're worse than the xenomorphs.Why do you think they burst out of our chest? when they realize that they are inside a skeleton they want to get the fuck out of here.
>>43387942Go for the doctor before he manages to escape and call for help.
>>43387942Chase down the Doctor, the guard shouldn't be an issue considering he's coated in military grade accelerant.
>>43387950Can dead humans be used as hosts as well? We do not need to mangle corpses (except to cause more fear to survivors) ?
Current Objectives: 1) Collect food for the embryo within James.2) Collect hosts for the other 3 eggs.3) Grow a queen.4) Grow the hive.3 for b.Write up incoming, give me a d20.
>>43387963What if there's a skeleton inside us? What if we develop an exoskeleton and it gets outside?

Rolled 20 (1d20)>>43387972As far as I know the host must always be alive, xenos will go out of their way to protect and restrain the host if needed be. Still good food though, assuming he doesn't burn to a crisp.>>43387973

>>43387973If dead guard cannot be inpregnated, he works as nice (and cooked) food for the embroy!(lets just get the Doc first)
>>43387972Nah, corpses cannot be used to gestate new Xenomorphs, although they still serve a purpose as a food source.
>>43387982>Xeno starts liking crispy meat and watermelon
>>43387982Reeling from your explosive confrontation you briefly see the doctor pass your peripheral vision, not willing to allow another perfectly good host escape, you leap into action and charge the fleeing Doctor.The Doctor reaches the door as you make contact and continues into the following wall as your momentum propels you both forward, you hear an audible *CRACK* as the doctor screams in agony. He is subdued.What do?A) Grab the guard and drag him to your hatchery(Barely alive, may not survive) d100. B) Rush the Doctor off to your hatchery.C) Other.
>>43388004C:Both, just prick the guard with your tail and drag him along that way.
Please take note.If you wish to take both, i'm going to need you guys to make a stealth check with d20 because you are rather large and can no longer fit into the vents with BOTH people.
>>43388004B: Doctor seems good host, the guard is of secondary matter. We can come and get him later.
>>43388004It's safe to assume that you don't want us to carry both so let's just grab the docto since it's a safe bet.
>>43388004Take both.If nothing else, the guard can be used for food or eggmorphing if he dies.
>>43388010Aye take both
>>43388004Get the doctor to the hatchery first, then deal with the guard assuming he's not already dead. Considering the severity of third degree burns, he's probably not going to live for much longer without immediate medical attention which we are incapable of preforming.
Take both it is. Give me a d20.

We pass vs dc 15.Write up inc.>>43388040>>43388038
With your distraction in the power station proving successful, you have little trouble passing through the station proper without trouble.You find yourself back on the alien craft with another host, and food for the NOW hatched chestburster awaiting you, having already begun feasting upon the former Security officer, James.You leave the extra crispy guard by the next egg , which you entice open with the comatose doctor.You now have in your hive:1 x Drone chest burster.1 x Implanted Security guard.1 x (almost adult) Praetorian xenomorph.You feel as if you should rest after you eat, instincts tell you to make a queen.You…A) Grab the guard and feast; it is time to morph into a queen.B) The metamorphosis can wait, we need more drones.C) return to the station with the other 2 eggs, the hive must move.D) other.
>>43388098BWe need a bigger hive, especially if a company of Marines are coming!
>>43388098>B) The metamorphosis can wait, we need more drones.To be honest I'd also rather another chestburster morph to a queen, and we'll serve it
>>43388098>Practice human speech. Attempt to mimic the sounds you heard from them.
>>43388098B) More drones desu sempai
>>43388098C: It is vital that we survive: If the prey would stumble upon our young it could be disastrous.
>>43388098I think we should relocate, perhaps to a different part of the alien ship. If we metamorphose too soon, moving about in stealth will be nearly impossible, and it will be more difficult to move from place to place as a queen. I submit that we first relocate to a different part of the ship, and then use up one more egg, leaving the other in reserve. Once we have three drones we can consider metamorphosing and then sending the drones out to bring new hosts to the fledgling hive.
2 for B.Write up in 1 minute unless other options receive more votes.
>>43388115I think you guys will be playing the whole hive, no?(lurking and enjoying)
>>43388143This. Move the eggs to the holding cells that were blocked.
>>43388155B it is, move eggs to barricaded holding cells.
>>43388098C) return to the station with the other 2 eggs, the hive must move.
OPDoes the station have any possibility for setting up automated turrets?
>>43388115That's not how it works, bro.A Praetorian Facehugger is born from a Royal Egg, it's purestrain, specifically calibrated to discard Host DNA for the Praetorian / Queen / Carrier / Ravager / Empress line of growth.Normal eggs take host DNA so the Hive can be better adapted to the environment they find themselves in. The ONLY exceptions to this are when people do genetic fuckery the likes of which result in K-series Aliens with their Predalien Queen and other abominations.
It's interesting to note that Xenomorph Hives apparently practice sustainable harvests.Like, in AVP2, the game, not the shit movie, that planet has like, 8 Queens, some smaller hives, an Empress, and a megahive, and the surrounding lands still had appreciable levels of Wildlife.Then again, some species of Ants practice animal husbandry and farming, and Xenomorphs are apparently find-tuned enough to survive in space for decades on end, so they probably don't even need to eat that much, and over-harvesting Hosts can only be a bad thing.
>>43388206it is a scientific station, and from what you have seen has no standard automated turrets within.
>>43388211Remove K from hive premises.
You remember how the holding cells where previously you had eaten everything, has now been locked down by the station personnel; a good place to start your fledgling hive.You collect the remaining two eggs and the comatose doctor, and begin the trek back towards Colonial 1, the chestburster coils up your leg and wraps itself around you securely.Upon arriving at the station, you notice that the power is still down and the red, emergency lights are still flashing. Good.You begin bringing the eggs into the holding cells as well as the doctor and you ensure the chestburster is safely tucked away in the nearby ventilation shaft as it begins it’s first stages of metamorphisising into a drone.You are now too large to fit into the ventilation shafts, from here on out, you may only stalk the halls as a 9 foot tall behemoth, Jesus Christ, how terrifying.A) Grab the guard and feast; it is time to morph into a queen.B) The metamorphosis can wait, we need more drones.C) Collect more hosts from the remaining 6 station personnel.D) Other.
>>43388251>B) The metamorphosis can wait, we need more drones.
>>43388251Will snatching only one person alert the other humans? If so I'd suggest we subdue them all at once if possible, so we don't have them trying to hunt us or building fortifications. If we can afford to pick one or two off without them noticing us, I suggest we do that and then metamorphose.
>>43388251Where we are? If we are in the barricaded holding cells, lets not move away as humans would notice we breaking the doors, so A. It is time to take it easy and let the drone do the work for us!
>>43388251>B) The metamorphosis can wait, we need more drones.>D) Practice trying to mimic human speech while we wait. Try to keep the volume low, to not attract anyone to the area.
>>43388262You need to recon the station to ascertain the whereabouts and fortifications of the station. It has been 1 and a half days since you took the doctor and moved your hive.
The halloween skin for 4chan is fucking awful
>>43388280Have our wounds from the exploding flamer healed ?
>>43388241I find it interesting that Purestrain aliums apparently don't suffer from age, the only time we see a Praetorian / Queen / Empress in disrepair or debilitated is when they are captive and can't really take care of themselves, or have their drones do it.Then again, I suppose they could be like tarantulas, living for a frankly obscene amount of time until they can have an exoskeleton so strong they can't molt it and die from the pressure, though this is really, really unlikely for something like a Xenomorph.For reference, a tarantula can apparently live upwards around thirty five years, barring fungal infection or the difficulties of strong exoskeletons mentioned above.
>>43388272D) and B) if no one else has a problem?>>43388289You have had time to overcome your superficial wounds, as the flamers were using rudimentary flammable liquids.
Growing up has fucked up the stealth benefit we had damn.Go to Residence 1 and start patrolling from there to the next residence blocks until we find someone. Doing the patrolling as quietly and stealthily as possible.
>>43388280In that case, I'd submit that we should metamorphose now and begin to fortify our own position, and let drones do the recon once they're fully grown.
>>43388295They are the ultimate predator, it makes sense they are effectively ageless.
>>43388295Considering how certain castes of xenomorph have giant hull-ripping claws, I don't think they would have difficulty with molting as long as they have an adequate hive. Just get some assistance, you know?>>43388306Sure thing, do it up
>>43388307It has it's benefits, what you lack in stealth you make up for in fuck huge stature, strength, and survivability.
>>43388329>you make up for in fuck huge stature, strength, and survivabilityIf that's the case we should go and fuck up the armory so that they only have shitty pistols and flammenwerfers. Unless the armory is fucked up already (I just started reading the thread).
>>43388345We did that in the beginning, after we killed stations only synthetic.
>>43388355Then metamorphosis and send a drone for one vessel to impregnate.
>>43388329Don't forget the ability to spawn endless more lesser forms to do the stealth for you.Or more Praetorians, they don't molt into Queens unless their mother is dead or have been out of contact for a extended period of time.Speaking of which, Are Arachnid-xenomorphs a thing? Facehuggers that fucked around long enough for the chestburster embryos inside of them to say "Fuck it" and impregnate the facehugger?Apparently they produce very strong Hive-webbing and are very good at digging because of the multiple legs.
Taking the next few hours of quiet, you begin attempting to mimic the human speech you have heard.You believe this could come in hand for luring prey into traps, or possibly distracting guards or hosts.You need more hosts before you metamorphisise into a queen, the process is lengthy and you are currently without guards.Your hive consists of1 x Chestburster(From the doctor)1 x adolescent Drone(Metamophisising.)2 x unhatched eggs.1 x Adult praetorian.A) Grab the guard and feast; it is time to morph into a queen.B) Create a hole into one of the adjacent residencies.C) Other.
>>43388378Where are we? In the barricaded holding cells?
>>43388378Two drones are probably better right now. They can still use stealth and overwhelm hosts. Give the body to the chestburster.
>>43388390>43388390yes, you have made these confines the beginnings of your hive.
>>43388392Seconded. More is merrier and our prey will not expect so many of us.
>>43388378Lets try and punch into the residence area, albeit as quietly as possible. Once we have three drones we should then metamorphose.
>>43388392If no objections, I'm going to do a time skip and take us up until both Drones have fully grown, 3 days in total would have passed.
Reminder that the marines are coming and know about us.Open a hole and look for someone to bring to the nest. We need more drones.
>>43388414Two drones sounds good.But we should start preparing for the Marines.
>>43388414Sounds good. A team of two stealth drones can wreck shit.
>>43388418Unless they had Marines on-hand it's going to take them months at the very least.And besides, when the Marines do arrive they probably won't have a Protagonist-level Operator to operate operatingly on our ass.
It is time to rest.3 days pass…You are unable to move around the vents as a fully grown praetorian strain Xenomorph, and spend your time guarding the hive, the two adult Drones you helped propagate are completely under your control, you are their queen for all intents and purposes.What do you have them do?2 x adult Drones.2 x unhatched eggs.1 x Adult praetorian.A) Have the drones split up. (Where do they go?)B) We SAS now(Have them go together to a place on the station.)C) Other.Also, name the drones, so we can identify them and make actions/rolls easily.
>>43388431Problem is that if we have gotten everyone in here before Marines arrive once they do initial recon they will most likely just nuke us. So we need to be prepared for them and hit them hard - and infest their ship so we can continue spreading
>>43388431You do not know how close the Marines are/were, when you overheard the Doctor, but from the general atmosphere, you are able to ascertain comfortably that the hopelessness of the personnel means they are not very close.
B) Together patrolling residence, looking for one, hopefully two humans for the eggs assuming they probably have their guard down after 3 days of no activity.
>>43388447B: After initial recon of current human activities, try to gather more hostsDrones are Doc and Number 1 ?
>>43388447Raptor and Dildo :3B) We SAS now(Have them go together to a place on the station.)
>>43388449Exactly we better just remain stealthy and keep some of the people aboard alive.That way the marines have to board the facility and we can try to hop aboard their strike cruiser.
B it is.Also vote on, raptor and dildo, or Doc and number 1.
>>43388449Would radiation even do shit to Xenomorphs?I mean, background radiation in fucking space didn't do anything to them, so if we can survive the initial nuke det we should be perfectly fucking fine.Colonial Marines never happened, you fucking cocksucker.
>>43388481Raptor and Dildo
>>43388472Seconding this. Also lets call our Praetorian Spooky, in honor of the earlier discussion of spook skeletals, Halloween, and that asteroid.
>>43388492Spooky, the praetorian, and raptor and Dildo the drone bros.You instruct the Drones to patrol the ventilation shafts and find suitable hosts for the remaining two eggs.Eager to please, the drones scurry off together.Eventually the come across a fortified residence just past the armoury you trashed earlier this week.There are 6 people inside, 3 are awake and holding flamers as well as being armed with small calibre side arms. Two are playing cards at a table whilst a 3rd is slowly making rounds, checking on the 3 people sleeping on the nearby bunks.The room is dark, illuminated by the red lights, barely.Only the 3 awake are armed, and you notice they are playing underneath a covered ventilation shaft and that they have their flamers leaning against the table on which they are palying cards.Hive consists of:2 x adult Drones.2 x unhatched eggs.1 x Adult praetorian.A) Have the drones split up. (Where do they go?)B) Attack the card playing guards (2d100[One for each drone])C) Attack the patrolling guard.D) Observe.E) Other.
>>43388486Eh, I would say it depends.Like, a Purestrain xenomorph would probably be fine unless the Preatorian Facehugger got a burst and the embryo inside it was vulnerable, I'm assuming the Eggs themselves are heavily insulated against....everything.A Drone strain? Probably vulnerable to it, because their hosts are vulnerable to it and the drone strains get information from Host DNA, which the radiation could damage.
>>43388486Station where we are seems quite small. One (or a bombardment) of space-nukes would hurt.And radiation would probably prevent other potential prey from arriving.
>>43388533Have one drone try and draw one or two of the guards outside of the fortified room. If we can draw two of the guards out, have the other drone drag the remaining guard into the vent.
>>43388533Take out the lights (thrash wires and systems in corridors), then attack the patrolling one?
>>43388533Have a drone go outside into the hall, and claw at the door, make a noise, then run away. Seconds later have a drone at the vent grab a guy and carry him inside back to the hive
>>43388551If alarmed they will most likely just wake up them all -> more difficult to get them. One stealth attack is better
Guys, if things start to go wrong at some point in the future, Jettison some eggs. It matters little if the entire hive dies, so long as at least a single egg lands somewhere else.
>>43388559>>43388551 I'm going to combine these two, as they are essentially the same task. Cool with you guys?
>>43388582Sounds okay. The drones have to act fast so the sleeping ones do not have time to wake up.
>>43388582Will this action wake up the other people? If so, will they have anything capable of causing complications?
>>43388597He already stated that only 3 guys (The 3 awake) are armed. And making a ruckus will definitely wake up the other considering all of them are on the edge right now.
>>43388597You'll have to roll for this, which is part of the options in the following;Dildo the drone, makes a beeline foe the ventilation exit in the corridor outside of the fortified room and hops down, as Raptor makes his way towards the patrolling guard, in preparation over a vent, the drones wait for the moment to strike…What do?A) Open the vent silently to ensure a stealthy grab. (d100)B) Make Dildo cause a ruckus outside, distracting the guards (d100)C) Other.
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>43388605>A) Open the vent silently to ensure a stealthy grab. (d100)
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>43388605A. Stealth is better than that humans are ready for us with weapons ready.
>>43388605Seems like a por que no los dos scenario to me, the drones should be able to co-ordinate well enough to carry out both actions simultaneously.
>>43388605Removing the vent is too risky and it can fuck up the entire plan.Make Dildo make a ruckus, everyone wakes up and start focusing on the door and then Raptor grabs whoever he can (an armed target if possible) and gets the fuck out to the holding cell.
>>43388605>B) Make Dildo cause a ruckus outside, distracting the guards (d100)
>>43388614relax guys, i've stated this a couple of times, i want you guys to come to consensus THEN roll. So this doesn't count.Lucky.>>43388616These options CAN be combined, but i'll need 2d100's instead of 1.
>>43388624You are the best of men, OP.
>>43388624One other option: They have flamer weapons in apparently quite small place.If both of drones attack sleeping humans they cannot fire! (Unless they see being burnt a better death than being hosted) :P
>>43388650I have two for ruckus and a couple of free form options. I'll duck out for a smoke, and when I get back I'll do the write up.
