Previous thread!->>1451589Last time on XenoMorph Quest we began our humble beginnings on a isolated Scientific Research Station conducting strange and probably illegal experiments in the space equivalent of international waters. We slaughter scientists and androids, create a queen and gain two powerful assets early. Our current hive total is1 Queen21 eggs4 drones1 Shadow1 Predalien1 Heavy Warrior.We have 12 Human Captives and a Tyrosian Thumper from the secure specimen storage.>Tyrosian Thumper- Gain Bulky body mutation. Perfect for warriors and Drones who will see much physical activity. Bulky increases their Physical size and strength, making them much more durable.>Implant to create 12 Drones>Create 6 warriors>Create 3 Heavy warriors>Other.
>>1480477>Create 4 warriors, and 1 Heavy warriorhave two tanks, and 4 more agile killers
>>1480477Let's pull a compromise and create 6 warriors, my reasoning is that we're bottled up with a limited number of hosts and eventually we'll have to capture a ship if we want any chance to escape. We need to be able to kill a greater fraction of hostiles than they kill of us, which means we need units that can both soak up some punishment but also deal out some damage, while being numerous enough that losing a few won't represent a massive loss of resources.
Also before the end of this thread I will post a pastebin or google doc of the available mutations and molts available. But if you feel like suggesting something feel free to toss it up whether its a unit type, mutation or tactic.

After they had feasted on their hosts they turned their ravenous hunger on the remaining humans, tearing them to pieces and feeding until they were fit to burst.>6 warriors gained. Warriors are the basic frontline units of the hive. These are beasts bred and shaped to kill. Next to the drones they are by far the most malleable of the hive, their bodies and minds suited to reshaping for new tasks.>who are you and how many minions will accompany you>Shadow-Runner adaptation, the hives Assassin and scout unit.>Predalien- a beast of muscle and predator fury, the hives close combat master.
>>1480616Switch to shadow, take the new warriors with you. We should see if there are any more parts of the station left to explore. Do the warm living bipeds have a queen like the un-living bipeds? Are they servants of yet another queen of metal and silicon, or are they subservient to another living biped? Where do they coordinate their activities from?

You growl happily as your new warriors follow you into the ductwork. As you crawl along you peer the occasional grate, watching the increasingly sparse humans as they go about their work. Many are armed with shock poles or small pistols. The androids have pulled back to the upper level labs, Mess halls and Dormitories, life support and Backup power, setting up barricades and killzones with the heavier weapons from the main armory. Human scientists and workers have joined them, the fidgety and sleepless looking humans sitting by in groups when not hard at work. As you crawl higher the security increases, armored androids marching in patrols, armed with bulky rifles and shotguns.Eventually the ducts narrow to the point that you cannot continue and you resort to simply watching as the humans and machines mill about.A human with an escort of armored androids confronts a group of technicians, the woman's voice ringing through the halls"What are you ingrates doing out here? Coffee break? Smoke break? We have Contagions loose on maintenance and cargo decks, main power is down, our shuttle bay is completely fucking SPACED!!!! And you fucks are on COFFEE BREAK??? If the Director even thought you shots weren't doing your jobs he'd have you fed to those monsters on Beta Deck!!

I know it sounds insane, but it could be a viable distraction tactic. Have it vocalize like a wounded woman in a low light/high ambient noise area to trick other humans into approaching its location then BAM! tackled from the side by a drone.Pic somewhat related.
>>1480941Actually that sounds kinda cool I wouldn't just have it have female voices though
>>1480965I get you. Make it excel in vocal mimicry and observed body language. If it can sound and move like its wounded, that would net you a few humans until they caught on. But then the psychological damage is done for now everyone is paranoid about going anywhere and trying to save anyone because it could be a morph.Psych warfare mutant strain.Fucking fund it.
>>1480965An infiltration unit would be pretty neat, some form that could perhaps kill a person and then replicate them by molting. It could retain their recent memories (a few days perhaps) and with upgrades could retain more and more till consuming a person gives the spy-morph all their relevant and important memories.
>>1480991Vocal mimicry will be allowed as a mutation>>1480994Physical mimicry is a bit much

>>1480991>>1480994If we end up getting a "Spymorph" and say it get a scientist's memories would we be able to do experiments/control Androids then? I don't think Cursed would let us get such an overpowered unit
Does the queen get any mutations?
>>1481037All of the perks I wrote up are in the previous thread, I don't know if QM is also making his own or not.
>>1481068Qm is definitely making his own list. The queen gets mutations to egg production and hive control.

>83+6. Sabotage Ventilation systemAs you scuttle through the ductwork back towards your stronghold in the cargo deck you detect a faint gust of cool air moving through the ducts. As the cool air filters through the grates the humans sigh in relief."Fucking finally. Damn air conditioning has been on the fritz since main power got knocked out"You clack your teeth. Cold air is no benefit to the hive. The hive prefers humidity and heat to grow. This "air conditioning" must be stopped.Following the gusts of cool air you clamber through the ducts, your warriors following close behind. You push aside gently spinning fans, worming your slick form through the gaps. Eventually the gusts strengthen to a breeze and then a near hurricane howl as the ducts grow wider, forcing you to dig your claws into the metal to prevent from being pushed back.You rip your way through a tiny hatch in the ducts and find yourself in a small room overlooking a cylindrical chamber filled with large spinning fans. A pair of human technicians step back in shock as your squad if warriors follow you through the hole.>Kill them. (D100+6)>Subdue them (D100+6)>Toss them into the Ventilation fans (D100+6)

You snarl, gesturing with a claw at the terrified technicians, the men are backed against their consoles, eyes white and pants wet, the stink of ammonia in the air.Your warriors approach, gripping them by the arms as they shrink away in terror. The powerful aliens turn and lift, flinging the men against the glass of their viewing station again and again. The material spiderwebs and cracks, shattering on the third toss, the shrieking technicians falling into the abyss of the ventilation shaft, their bodies rent into pieces by the spinning blades.Far below the sound of rending metal reaches you, it seems the impact of a technicians body bent one of the fans, the powerful motors insistence on moving tearing the shaft to pieces. Alarms and klaxons begin blaring as the chain reaction crawls up the shaft.Your squad dashes into the ducts and crawls away rapidly as the control station is annihilated by a wave of spinning metal, the massive fan blades shredding the room into metal confetti.>Ventilation is down.

>83+6. Improve nest. All your basement are belong to us.Over the next days, the entire bottom reaches of the station fall to the creeping black resin that makes up your hive. Walls, ceilings, floors, ducts, all are covered in layers of the glossy black substance. The ever increasing humidity condensates and drips from the ceiling and runs down the walla, collecting on the floors in murky puddles. Isolated maninenace androids are cemented to the walls, their plaintive voices echoing throughout the midnight halls. Pockets of technicians and laborers are found as they attempt to escape the foul air, dragged back to the nest screaming and clawing, their cohorts fleeing towards what they perceive as safety. Your presence is most definetly known and there is nothing that they can do to stop you. A visible demarcation can be found as an Android stronghold at an abandoned lab houses several humans along with their synthetic guardians. Your hive can advance no further until they are dealt with.>Lower Station Levels are Now hive territory. The stifling heat and choking humidity are as effective a defense as your own teeth and claws.

>>1482157>>Mutate a hive memberCan we get a second stealth specialist like Shadow?
>>1482169Of course you can. You can get a shadow or a hunter or a ripper or any other drone/warrior/runner variant
I think we should lend the shadow the ability to mimic humans, perhaps we can trick the remaining station crew into sending a sizable force down into our hive. At that point we can ambush them when they're out of their element and deal enough of a blow to their forces that we can steamroll the rest with practically no resistance.

>99. Excellent success! Attack the android strongpoint!>Bringing everyone. 4 drones, 1 heavy warrior, 1 Predalien, 6 warriors, a Shadow and a partridge in a pear tree.The Androids manning the defenses of the Strongpoint, a heavily reinforced abandoned lab on Delta level, scan the darkness of the nearby corridor with their pistols. The flashlights beams illuminate the inky darkness and the scored holes in the walls show where they had taken potshots at the encroaching XenoMorphs. If synthetics could be nervous, these two would be terrified."Hostile lifeform detected""Opening fire"A flash of inky black carapace in the darkness prompts a barrage of gunfire, the bullets sparking from the metal as the XenoMorph scurries away with a furious screech."Contact lost""Network connection error. Pursuit canceled. Returning to Guardian protocol"The synthetics turn to resume their patrol around the labs outer defenses but are met by a towering wall of muscle and Chitin. The Predalien and a pair of your warriors growl softly as the Androids process the situation."Hostile liform detect-""Opening Fi-"A single swipe of the Predaliens scythelike tail rends both of their heads from their shoulders, their bodies twitching spasmodicaly as their mouths work without voices.Inside the lab behind barricades of tables and chairs sit several human technicans, some crouched by themselves and others huddled in groups, darting their eyes about at the exchange of gunfire that had been uninvestigated by the remaining Security. You peer through a slat in ceiling, growling softly as you watch the Androids vigilantly watch the doors and man the barricades, weapons trained and eyes unblinking.Yet they are facing the wrong way. With a screech you rip through the flimsy metal, dropping upon a Security android, followed by four of your warriors and all of the drones. "hostiles detected! Hostile detected! Opening fire!" repeats the pinned synthetic before you jam your claws into its head, pulling back until the twitching ceases. Your warriors and drones leap upon the nearby technicians and Security, bowling them over and mauling with tooth and claw. Across the room the remaining androids turn their weapons upon your group, several shots crashing into the walls and furniture, a unlucky drone being caught in the midsection with a growl of pain and a spurt of acidic blood.>cont
>>1482254But in turning their attention to you they seal their fate as lumbering footsteps turn into a thundering charge. The flimsy barricade is smashed aside by a arm the size of your body. The androids standing nearby can do nothing but be smashed to pieces by the lumbering might of your heavy warrior. Behind its bulk comes the rest of your forces, falling upon the increasingly outnumbered security like wolves.Eventually the shooting stops with the sound if ripping synthetic flesh, the last shell casings falling to the floor amid puddles of blood and synthetic fluid. Your hive has won its first assault and proven their superiority. >2 Drones mildly wounded. 1 warrior mildly wounded.>8 security Androids destroyed.>3 humans killed>6 humans captured.>15 human captives total>23 eggs. >Implant how?

And rape.The humans cluster up, their android guardians firing into the swarming Xenomorphs, rounds sparking off of the walls or rarely releasing small spurts of acidic blood. The leader of the humans keys his communication relay in panic. The teams of his superiors and coworkers in the security headquarters are treated to the live video feed from his rifle camera and the squad leaders terrified voice."Command! We're experiencing heavy resistance! Up to-Get back you fuck!(Gunfire) Back! Up to 60% casualties! We're surrounded! Repeat! We- MICHEALS! NO!(Gunfire and A unintelligible scream) WE NEED SUPPORT! THERE'S TOO MANY!! Oh god NO!(Gunfire followed by a pained scream)The security team hold their breath, gripping their desks tightly as the video feed shows only the small section of floor illuminated. The whispering voice of the squad leader comes shakily over the comms "Ple-please.... Come get us.... They... They killed Micheals... Dragged Thomasson off... Please...."His voice cuts off with a terrified scream of agony with a wet rip of flesh. A bony clawed hand flips over his lifeless corpse, Newts dripping maw hovering over the camera."Shhhhhhhhh...."

Yet you may also he able to find some lab animals and bring them back to the nest>Catch Humans >Find Lab Animals>Other
>>1488282Catch Humans. The payoff is too great
>>1488282Catch humans, animals after all cannot operate weapons or oppose us in an organized manner. The humans haven't reproduced even once to our knowledge, so every one they lose is one they can't replace. We'll wear their numbers down with attrition while swelling our own and then overwhelm them.
>>1488282Also QM do we know anything about the disposition of the human and android forces on the station? Do we have an idea of how many of them are left?
>>1488282> Find Lab Animals.> Attempt to tame some of them.If we can start breeding, say, rats or rabbits, it'd be a steady source of food for our youngest members, rather than wasting potential human hosts.Also, we should try and nab some of those caged alien predators, try and pick up some more mutations.
>>1488453The humans are reduced to several dozen and there are easily over a hundred androids remaining, concentrated on the other levels.
>Catch Humans.You creep along the walls, sticky pads of your feet giving you firm purchase as you search for any remaining humans. Your pack stalk along behind you, maws dripping clear slaver."I don't know Whats going on ok? None of us do!""Command issued some kind of lockdown and told us to stay here! Apparently some specimens got loose and started breeding in the cargo hold""That killteam must have sorted them out right?""I heard up on Beta deck they rigged a lifepod with some kind of beacon and jettisoned it. Are our main comms still down?"You growl happily. It seems a small group of humans have remained on this deck, dutifully following the orders to remain at their "secure" station.You pull loose a panel from the ceiling, slithering into the narrow space while your warriors adhere themselves to the wall. You creep ahead, following the humans voices into a nearby Dormitory, its door blocked from the inside.The humans huddle around a small terminal, one is elbow deep in its wiry guts, possibly attempting to fix it as the others discuss what is possibly going on. Well. No rest for for the wicked and they will learn soon enough.You smash your claws into the ceiling panel and it falls inward, the heavy sheet of metal shearing off one humans leg as he kneels to hand the technician a tool. The others scatter, some running to the door and throwing away the flimsy barricade before dashing into the hall. Their screams of terror cutting off abruptly as your warriors snatch them.You leap upon a human advancing with a large chunk of metal, the foolish biped assuming the weapon will frighten you off. Your tail blade pierces his chest and your momentum sends the man flying, his chest split open and organs falling free.Your drones pour in through the open door, leaping upon the remaining humans, bearing them to the floor and smashing their heads into the metal.The technician has barely had time to push himself from his station before you grip his head in both bony claws, lowering your toothy jaws to his face."Oh god WHAT THE FU-"*CRUNCH*Gore and thick Grey matter splatter the wall behind the unfortunate man.

Some even carry rectangular polymer riot shields, small shotguns poking through the slots in their centers.There are well over forty of them, surrounding their human handlers, the men clad in armored climate suits, wildly swinging their rifles about, trying to illuminate the inky darkness."He-HEEEELLLLPPPP!!!

They push open the door, dashing past several of your warriors without notice, unable to distinguish carapace from resin.They pull to a stop as as they enter the lab, the back of Micheals head visible over the top of the chair. "Micheals? You ok buddy? We're here to get you. Come on man, youre safe now"The Security officer steps forwards, spinning the chair around as Micheals groans and shakes his head"Fuck!

Your warriors striking from above, below, behind, striking from the walls themselves and fading away like shadows.You creep slowly along the ceiling grate as they manage to get Micheals loose from his resin restraints, taking the exhausted mans arms over their shoulders they begin advancing toward the door, weapons ready."We gotta-gotta go...

What the fuck are these eggheads cooking up here!?!""We need to get the fuck out NOW!!""Micheals NO! Don't do-"*BANG* Micheals lifeless body slumps to the floor, blood gushing from his temple. He had lunged And snatched the pistol from the nearby Zhang, splattering the walls with his brain."Oh god man OH FUCKING GOD WE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE"Several of the team break and run, desperately fleeing toward the elevator. Their teammates attempt to catch up, drawing the tight formation into a long scattered line.Perfect. Your warriors fall upon the android guards nearest the elevator, the androids simply unable to react fast enough and promptly disemboweled by slashing claws, milky white fluid splattering the walls and running in thick streams along the floor.The first members of the team round the final corner, starting in shock at the sight of their guards being mauled to pieces. Before they can even lift their rifles they are swatted aside by the heavy warriors, bones audibly splintering as they impact the walls.All along the scattered formation your warriors and drones attack, a Android or human that strays from the other is pierced through and left twitching or dragged screaming into the dark.Dutch wades into the clump, shrugging off fire as he lays about with his claws and tail, his massive strength cleaving heads and crushing bone.After several minutes the screaming finally stops. The last bullet casings clatter to the floor among puddles of blood and android fluid. Your hivemates secure the new captives and lick their wounds, growling happily at this great victory>44 androids destroyed>3 humans killed>10 humans captured >3 Drones mildly wounded>1 Drone moderately wounded>2 Warriors mildly wounded>Dutch mildly wounded>9 human hosts available>24 eggs >implant hosts how?
>>1490642Yep, we need numbers. We've reduced the android forces by what sounds like about a third, but if I'm not mistaken they still outnumber us. Also I think we should really start thinking about some stat improvements. Maybe the humans store food somewhere we can raid for easy energy surplus.

>>1491651I'd say 5 of these Guardian/Hoplite warriors. Not enough to run us completely out of food, but could block a hallway as needed.
>>1491651How many warriors do we have? Let's take all the wounded ones, plus however many more it takes to reach 4 total. That should be enough to block a hall, plus gives them time to heal.

Could we get Bioregenisis on the Hoplites? If so that and a hive anodes are my vote, if we have the food to upgrade them right now.
>>1491670We have 8 warriors and 2 Bulky Heavy warriors.
Do these hive-wide perks require food, some other research, or can we apply them whenever you give us the option to apply a mutation?
>>1491698You do have food what with the rotting corpses you have hanging around. Enough to easily upgrade your warriors and a drone to builder to begin upgrading the actual hive.
>>1491676As always, your lists are better than my own ideas:)
>>1491712In that case, I vote for those upgrades. We need to roll?
>>1491730I draw from about two years of playing and replaying AVP:Extinction, to this day I pray that some kind of sequel will be created.
>>1491712>>1491699Hoplite Xeno'll look something like this, using regular warriors.
So the consensus is to mutate 4 Warriors into Guardian Warriors. They will be larger than average, slow moving with a one forearm covered in a large, thick chitin shield and the claws of the other arm extended into long, slashing claws. Their tailblade will be narrowed into a piercing point with no edge.Yes? You also have enough food to mutate a Drone into a Builder to begin improved Hive Upgrades
>>1491743Oh god that would be the best game ever made
>>1491754>builderAbsolutely yes! As far as Hoplite see pic here>>1491749
>>1491741No, Mutation is a action that requires only necessary food. 1 corpse per mutation depending on the size of the Xenomorph
>>1491754this sounds pretty hype. yes to builder and hoplites
>>1491759Ive got drawings in my thread! (Squees internally)
>>1491775Couldn't help myself, got really into the idea of a xeno that simply marches forward through fire until it impales the shooter on tail
>>1491775I might go back to drawing when my PC is back on it's feet, but I'm a lazy faggot so I'll probably not be able to pump out drawings like I do perks.
>>1491815they don't have to be great. I literally googled alien queen head, and quick sketched the shield from that.
>95+6. Amazing success. Attack next deck. Claim hive space.>4 Guardian Warriors created. 1 Builder created.A group of your warriors rip their way free from cocoons of Resin and flesh, stretching their newly shaped limbs as fluid and scraps of tissue fall away. They are hulking beasts, nearly as tall as your heavy warriors. Their head is wide and short, a dome of carapce protecting their heads and necks like a helmet. Their chests and legs are thick and heavy, coated in layers of overlapping chitin as hard as iron. One entire foreclaw has been shaped into a massive shield of chitin, the glossy black surface sloping away into rough edges nearly four feet across. Their other claw consists of thick fingers extending into long, razor sharp claws stretching twice their original length. Their tail curls over their shoulders, long and thin it ends in a needle sharp point of hardened chitin perfectly shaped to punch through the enemies of the Hive.Nearby a drone pulls itself from a similar cocoon, stretching its limbs and chittering in displeasure at all the work that hasn't been done yet. It is bulky, stronger than an average drone with a small pair of secondary arms extending from its torso. These are small, with delicate fingers well suited for intricate work. It immediately commandeers a group of drones and sets off to extend the hives holdings.>Builder gained. HIVE upgrades are now possible. Upgrades to Hive structures and even Biomechanical structures/weapons can now be created.Your warriors and drones begin massing at the freight elevator, chittering for the fresh battles to come from above.>Tactics time.

Modified claws for your description.
Here are some class mutations. More hive perks and structures up next.>RavagermorphDerived from: Standard praetorianThe ravager class of Xenomorph is an unrivaled engine of slaughter, completely forsaking the functionality of it’s normal hands, it’s forearms develop into massive scythe like monomolecular chitin blades capable of cutting through starship hull metal, heavy vehicle armor, all grades of body armor, and flesh with equal ferocity. +Does massive damage in close combat+Incredible health-Sacrifices armor of similar sized morphs for raw damage-Ravagers cannot subdue targets, only slaughter them-Ravagers are HUGE, cannot effectively into stealth>HammermorphDerives from: Standard PraetorianThe Hammermorph is the tankiest tank that ever tanked, coated from clawed toes to dripping fangs in superheavy chitin plates, the Hammermorph’s oversized fists fuse together to form crushing bludgeons of bone and armor. While it cannot inflict the same kind of carnage as the Ravagermorph, it compensates with an incredible capacity for absorbing injury.+Absorbs massive damage in close combat+Incredible health-Sacrifices raw damage of similar sized morphs for protection-Hammers are HUGE, cannot effectively into stealthScissormorphDerives from: Standard WarriorThe Scissormorph wields twin blades similar to those of a Ravager, but at a much smaller scale. Monomolecular chitin can cleave through human-sized body armor almost as easily as the flesh beneath it, but simply lacks the weight and force required to inflict that same damage on heavier or more robust armor. +Straight upgrade to warriors, they inflict more damage in close combat with human sized targetsCastermorphDerives from: Standard DroneThe Castermorph sacrifices the functionality of one arm to develop a novel organ which is capable of lobbing exceptionally caustic blobs of acid to long distance with pressurized gas. While not as caustic as Xenomorph blood, and thus incapable of hulling ships or stations, acid projectiles are more than capable of dissolving body armor and flesh with gruesome efficiency. +Ranged combat-weak in close combat with the use of only one arm

>Sweep and clear. If the android guards remaining on the main deck had the initiative to guard the main elevator they would notice the massive claws emerging from the gaps in the door, muscles straining as the doors are bent inwards, easily forming a large gap. Inky black figures swarm through as the massive figures emerge. Several of them sporting massive shields of chitin move to the front of the group, overlapping their shields into a walking wall of black carapace.The first Strongpoint is a reinforced mess hall, the occupants having formed crude barricades from the metal tables. Their android guards open fire as your warriors break the door down, advancing inside as the humans scramble behind cover. The first of your guardians reaches the synthetics and smashes one against the wall with its shield, tail whipping out to pierce another that attempts to fire at its back. Your heavy warriors burst through the formation, smashing aside the barricades and crushing several humans and androids under the hastily welded tables. massive claws sweep down, slashing and crushing synthetic and natural bone with ease. You leap onto the ceiling, using your momentum to carry you into the back of the androids formation, one of your shadows plucked from the wall by a hail of bullets, its squeal of pain accompanying your own howl of rage as you drive your claws into a androids eyes, ripping its face apart before leaping to the next.Behind you comes Bruce, impaling a android on one claw and using it as a shield to advance upon the nearest group. His large claws and heavy tailblade shear through their bodies, leaving them to topple to the floor in pieces. The bullet riddled android is flung into the wall with such force it hangs in the dent, fluid dripping down the wall.Only when the last of the synthetic guardians lies bisected on the floor do you calm, chittering in glee as the remaining human captives are bundled in resin and pile near the elevator.>2 Drones mildly wounded.>1 Shadow Heavily wounded >1 Warrior Mildly wounded>16 androids destroyed.>5 humans killed.>6 humans captured.Your builder expresses interest in these "human weapons " and claims it can possibly improve the hive with study.>Bring a pistol>Bring a Assault rifle >Bring a shotgun>The hive doesn't need puny human weapons >Also, continue assault or gather forces and implant new host

>>1492218We're at the point where shadows aren't as useful, since quite a bit of this station is ours, so we need more warriors and drones.
>>1492245I'd agree with this, shadows are great for a probing offensive and spying through vents, but they're going to suffer when forced to fight side by side with various combat forms in direct confrontations.
>>1492163I know i could/would be a waste but can we and implan some humans and then send them back to the other survivors we might be able to sneak into a room during the confusion when the little guys emerge like 2 bodies would be fine
>>1492281This is actually a pretty neat idea. I'll throw my support to it.
Also how many humans have climate controlled suits on could we get something like poison gas Hive mutation or get a poison gas mutation on a Xenomorph
>>1492281Just one. Don't want to waste valuable resources, and if there's more than 1 survivor it'd be suspicious.
>>1492306The thing is though we could get more people if it's successful that is
>>1492303I made a hive upgrade for that a while back. I'll create a dedicated AOE debuff Xenomorph in a short while.>Aggressive terraformingWhat you call home is a far cry from the soft and friendly climates of weaker creatures, your hive and hive nodes pump out heat, spores, and caustic vapors. You couldn’t be happier but other lifeforms will be hard pressed to remain alive in such a vicious environment.+Enemies who enter your hive or hang around your hive nodes suffer from reduced health+You are warm and cozy
>>1492316we've left no survivors from offensives so far, if more than one makes it out their commander(s) may sense a trap.
>implant humans and release 1 to sow chaos once it hatches. Y/N
>>1492320I want our builder to make this now. More intensive the closer to the Queen they get
>>1492326Every single Y my body can muster.
>>1492326Y. Plus even if it doesn't cause any physical damage to some it'll still cause a huge amount of psychological damage.
>>1492326YES. All my yes. Waiting 56 seconds to post my ASS!
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>1492326Y I'll roll for it too Forgive me it's not correct
Here's my AOE class. Hive structures ACTUALLY on the way now.>SporemorphDerives from: Standard DroneSporemorphs completely retool their biology, shedding their armor to grow bulbous sacs which exhale clouds of caustic vapor that burn the eyes and lungs, weakening enemies in it’s vicinity. The sporemorph’s body is compromised by these new organs and as such it cannot excel in combat like it’s brothers. The sporemorphs chemical factories can be heavily modified to cause varied effects. +AOE debuff reduces health of all enemies in the sporemorphs vicinity (1 deck/level of a spaceship or station, whatever the area of combat is if the sporemorph is included in an attack party)-Poor health-Poor damage
>>1492373I like this a lot put these on the backs of the Guardian Warriors perfect symbiosis then
>6 Drones. Release 1 to spread Psychological horror.>Molt 5 to Create CasterMorphs>Builder gets a shotgun to tinker with.>Builder builds Hive node.Your Builder climbs up the elevator shaft, its drone attendants following it positively laden with squirming Facehuggers. They immeidately latch onto the human captives, forcing their embryos into the hosts. While the humans are implanted your Builder ingest a large amount of fresh meat and offal, a large organ on its chest swelling before it kneels next to the elevator opening and disgorges a pulsing mass of resin. The gluey orb latches onto the wall, spreading thick black tendrils along the wall as the self sufficient mass of neural tissue and resin links to the hive mind.A drone offers up one of the bulky, squarish shotguns wielded by the androids. The builder snatches it from the drones hand and retreats into the hive proper, eager to inspect this new treasure.One of the freshly implanted humans is dragged to the edge of the nearest Strongpoint territory, his restraints cut free and the Facehuggers pried from his head. In a few hours his precious cargo will emerge>Improve hive (D100+6)>Have Builder Research Shotgun (D100+6)>Attack nearest Strongpoint (D100+6)>Other

They stuff their bellies to full and beyond, their shells cracking under the pressure.>hours passThe cocoons of resin and flesh are torn open as your new CasterMorphs enter the world. They are sturdy, squat creatures, similar to a drone but more muscular. One entire forelimb is reshaped into a tube like organ, pressurized sacs along its length filling with viscous acid and pressurized air. They growl happily as they test the new organs, the globs of acid burning shallow holes into the metal walls. Your Hive will continue to adapt and thrive>5 CasterMorphs created. A mid range unit capable of dealing devasting damage to soft targets. Decreased melee damage and will require support.
Does another anon want to roll and hopefully salvage this clusterfuck?
Rolled 27 + 6 (1d100 + 6)sure, I'll try

>39+6. Improve hive on main deck.Your drones set to work on securing the nearby rooms, smearing resin on literally everything and prying open doors to reveal rooms that have been previously used to house humans hiding from the encroaching menace.Several contain corpses of those who had chosen to escape in their own way or had succumbed to the decreasing air quality and rising heat of this deck.As your drones advance through the hallways a whirring sound is heard in the darkness ahead of them. Bright red beams if light leap from the darkness and settle on their carapaces. Curiously they scratch at the beams of light shortly before the source is illuminated by muzzle flash, the drones thrown back he the impact of the high caliber bullets.>Nearest Strongpoint (Armory) is protected by Heavy Autocannons and Android guards. >2 drones severely wounded>Removing Newts squad bonus from rolls that don't apply.

>>1492615Well that rules out frontal assault, assuming these are comparable to the autoturrets in Aliens. We'll have to use the vents, or perhaps... Well I have a possible solution on the way.
Rolled 25 + 6 (1d100 + 6)>>1492615>Attack Armory (D100+6)take the vents closer, then drop the casters and hoplites to destroy the turrets, push up and kill the rest.
>IncineratormorphDerived from: Castermorph or Standard DroneThe incineratormorph sacrifices the functionality of one arm to develop a novel organ which consists of a large reservoir of highly caustic accelerant and a reservoir of highly pressurized gas. When ejected from this modified limb, the accelerant reacts with oxygen and ignites at a temperature of 1350 degrees C. This metal warping, lung incinerating, caustic napalm burns with a sickly green light and is superb at causing entrenched enemies to crumple under the blistering heat and clouds of acidic vapor. +Extreme damage in enclosed spaces or against enemies without specialized thermal protection-poor health-weak in close combatLook on my work, ye barricades, and despair!
>>1492665Hoplites are much too big to use the Vents. Nearly the size of the heavies
>>1492674This pleases my cock
>>1492674ohh, this is good. make some casters into these.>>1492676shit. well, we may just be able to use the vents to pop out and shoot, play whack-a-mole
>>1492615Mutate two of our casters into incinerators. FUCK strongpoints.
>>1492690yeah, this would be better. I'm heading off for the night, hope you guys murder more humie gitz while I'm asleep. good luck, friends.
>>1492699I was thinking more along the lines of this.
Here's hive structures, part one.>Thermobaric spore mineA modified hive node, the spore mine exhales a thick cloud of highly reactive chemicals, acid, and metallic powder, igniting this already lethal mixture with a bioelectric spark and producing a conflagration hot enough to fracture metal and carbonize flesh. +Damages enemies-Damages friendlies, stand clear>Caustic spore projectorA modified hive node, the spore projector develops a specialized organ which stores and spits half-strength xenomorph blood. While this powerful corrosive cannot usually outright kill humans, it can severely wound or incapacitate them if they aren’t wearing specialized protective garments. +Damages enemies>Structural valvesThe hive structure develops natural irising valves around intersections and at the hive’s entrance. These organic doors can be opened or closed at will to impede the progress of invading enemies and slow their progress into a hive. +Improved hive defense, enemies must destroy doorways before they can continue into the hive.
Sorry for the lateness. Any anons present?
>>1494576Sir, yes sir!

>>1494621naw, I get nightmares more or less every night. But rest was had, so that was good.
>>1494617We were attacking the armory. Glad that we don't have to worry about smoke inhalation.
>69+6. Attack Armory.>2 AcidCasters mutated into IncineratorsA pair of your newly made AcidCasters tear into piles of bleeding human limbs, stuffing their bellies to fuel the necessary caloric process to change their bodies once more.>Hours later.The armory is under assault. Android Security stand at their posts, assault rifles perched atop metal barricades, muzzle flash illuminating the oncoming force as the Autocannons thunder. Your Guardians march forward, the Heavy Autocannons high caliber chewing into the thick chitin of their shields, globs of acid arcing over their defenses, splashing down among the android defenders. Several reel backwards, pawing at the viscous liquid as it melts away their faces, flopping to the floor as their heads dissolve.One of your Guardians stumbles as a shotgun slug punches into its knee, splitting the carapace and spurting thick green caustic blood onto the floor. The limping Guardian resumes the relentless march into the hail of gunfire, leaving a trail of cratered metal behind it.Finally the formation closes on the barricades and tiny gaps appear in the shield wall, a pair of circular limbs extending from the slots. Before the androids can switch targets the Incinerators release their destructive payload. Vibrant green flames coat every surface ahead of the formation, metal warping and cracking in the intense heat as the Androids simply fade away into piles of slag and carbon. The Autocannons explode as their rounds cook off, showering the remaining defenders in shrapnel and ricocheting bullets.The Main defenses breached, your Troops begin pouring around the Guardians, smashing down the flailing Androids and attempting to Pry open the locked door.>Have a heavy smash it down (D100+6)>Have AcidCasters coat the door in Acid and then smash it down (D100+6)>Use the Incinerators, Slag the Door (D100+6)>Other

>93+6Your Incinerators growl happily, chattering to one another as they begin bathing the Armory door in emerald flames, the metal warping and glowing under the intense heat, fissures appearing as large flakes of metal fall away or are atomized by the flames.They step away, burbling proudly as the thick metal of the door ticks and pops, mechanisms within melted into slag. One of your Heavy warriors steps forward, swinging a heavy limb forward and shattering the red hot metal into a burst of scorching shrapnel. As the metal ricochets around the room there are hisses and pops as they connect with androids, the metal sinking into their flesh and boiling away the tissue. Screams of pain signal the presence of humans within, the scent of burnt flesh evident they did not expect the sudden destruction of the door.Your Heavy warriors step into the armory, thick bodies simply absorbing the bullets fired at them, calmly observing before springing into action. Androids are splattered against the walls, synthetic bones shattering into countless pieces. Massive claws sweep downward, splitting body armor asunder and crushing unfortunates into the floor.Your warriors leap in, crawling along the walls, slashing with claws and tail, rending open those that oppose them. Androids and humans alike are cut down, left bleeding and twitching on the floor as their lifeblood is sprayed across the floor.Your Guardians smash aside the remaining opposition, shields crushing bone, tails piercing enemies and nailing them to the floor or walls. Foot long claws bisect entire bodies, leaving the victims to fall to the floor in pieces.>1 Guardian moderately wounded>2 Drones mildly wounded.>1 Acidcaster mildly wounded>14 Androids Destroyed>3 Humans killed>5 Humans captured >Implant hosts how?
>>1494827we already have quite a bit of drones and warriors, so what say we implant some builders? get our territory truly built for us?
>>1494833You can mutate drones into Builders. Builders are a drone molt. Until you create a Engineer you can't create advanced unit eggs.
>>14948272 builders and the rest drones? Also do we have an efficient medbay, or do we need to make one?
>>1494837awright, then implanting 2 drones and one heavy warrior.
>>1494838Alright so all drones and molt a couple into builders.
>>1494838You can create a hive upgrade to improve heal times and health upgrades for Xenos.
>>1494859Can we hide inceno's in holes so when people come in we can spew fore eile they walk over our fiery fiends?
Here's a hive buff upgrade from a previous thread.>Hive bioregenisisHive material and hive nodes produce clouds of regenerative spores which confer the bioregenesis perk to all Xenomorphs within the hive proper or close to a hive node. Xenomorphs within the hive proper or close to a hive node recover more quickly from injuries.+hive and hive nodes buff Xenomorphs
Ayo QM you still alive in there?Anyone else lurking, anyone have some perk ideas/suggestions/etc?
>>1495515We do have someone researching the tech behind the shotgun. Perhaps when we upgrade the hive defences we can create some sort of biomechanical turret.This could even be used as a tool for aggressive expansion. Instead of clearing each room one by one, we could just make a beeline straight down the middle and set up turrets to keep the resistance at bay (thinking like a Xenomorph version of blitzkrieg).
>>1495515Yeah im still here. Sorry been hanging out with the gf and the familia.

The Predalien’s ribs and flexible but tough carapace thicken and fuse into a barrel like case of dense overlapping chitin plates nearly impossible to pierce with small arms fire, offering extreme protection for it’s vital organs.

>46. Research Shotgun. Slim Failure.Your builder crouches over the strange, blocky human weapon that the hive had claimed in battle. So far its attempts to divine the secrets of the weapon have been fruitless. It has remained stoic and silent, refusing to roar with flame and death for the Builder. In aggravation the builder grabs the shotgun by its barrel, shaking it back and forth. Suddenly the grip along the bottom of the tubular portion slides back and forth, ejecting a bright red cylinder with a loud KA-CHINK. curiously the Builder inspects the weapon, turning it over in his claws and twisting it this way and that. Suddenly one of its claws sticks into a loop of metal near the bottom of the weapon where a small spur of metal resides. Unknowingly your builders claws pulls back the spur.BOOM!>1 Drone Moderately woundedA nearby drone squeals and flops over, pawing desperately at the spurting gouge torn from its flank.

Surely there must be some way to inspect it without incurring its wrathThe human weapon is gingerly picked back up and placed on a small outcropping of resin. A delicate claw pokes and prods, scraping small furrows in the synthetic grip and stock. Small inscriptions stand out along its side, a small collection of notches along its barrel.The weapon fails to cooperate however.
