>>2147416
And what is that, Baron Taxla?Some sort of mark of your people?

I have read some information of the Dukedom.It appears you are rather, well, secluded in some regards. Honestly you are the first member of their people I have met.
>>2147417
Ah, I see.Well,it is good you have free time. I believe this Federation may take up quote a bit of effort on your part, assuming the galaxy is as ripe with strife as I am led to believe.

Welcome, Grod, Garry, and Pipe-Thing!And what of these clans?Are you a collective?

Hello, Silver Frond and Golden Fern. You represent Iron Bloom?
I did not know we had such an esteemed company here. How does it fare?

And whom do you represent?

>>2147402
>He gives him a too hard pat on the back
No hard feelings of course. We are here on a mission of peace after all to show that humans and Ploraxians can co-exist.
>>2147399
Ahhh the Wastes of course the Wastes. I would surely like to hear more about it I've heard some strange rumors of it if I'm being honest...Spacers tales are not the most reliable sources.
>>2147409
Oooooo really tell me about it. Anyone who is interested in the Empire must me a good sort.
>>2147410
Well welcome to the Federation it is always nice to see more races coming together in peace.
>>2147416
Twenty years of my life.I enlisted as soon as I was able to fight in the War at the ripe old age of 16. My father was a military man as well so I had to do for his honor and follow in his footsteps. What about you Baron Taxla? What of your service?

>>2147459
Hmm.And what sort of rumors, may I ask?

After all, it is a rather infamous locale. Or rather, a sailor's tall tale.

>>2147459
Hm. Very well. Let us work towards the feeling of reconciliation.
>>2147458
Now, about those breaches.

Quit yer yappin', ye dog. I'm going in, and if they don't like it they can talk to the Cap'n about it, savvy?

I am Administrator Krexlorr Jamm, appointed to be the Representative of Halcyon Incorporated by the 5th Board of Directors.
We will be landing in approximately 5 minutes, in order to discuss matters further.

"Creature, machine, we tend to blur the line where that is concerned. In essence, it is a living machine. It eats, it breeds, it reacts and adapts to the environment. Although right now my dear Iridium is controlling it from its chambers back on board the ship."

*It is a joy to be held in such high regards, Carter. While Silver wants to participate in these dealings as best she can, she does have a planet to run. I will be acting as the chief representative in cultural exchanges. She's... already trying to push product...*

This is just a small clockwork canine. They have become very rare after Valor went to war. They are very pleasant companions to have at your side. I have tried to replicate what they can do in a larger scale, but have failed on many occasions. This one is proving somewhat successfully, but needs tweaking.

Yes indeed. Otherwise if relations degrade I would be pleased to give battle to you once again.

That is some sort of flesh covered hell where only the lucky survive. And that it is filled with strange creatures that will either help you or eat you alive. And that it is filled with great ships that look like maws and eat any starships that enter into their domain as a quick meal.
Must be rumors of course.

No migration of course.We wish to keep our colonies free of Ploraxians. We don't want any infiltrators. But trade may be a different question. Our trade fleets have been heavily depleted by the war but I believe they are ready.

Well may I ask CEO if you could supply any terraformers to our great nation? The war has destroyed a great many of our colonization ships and terraforming machines as well.

This is a good point. That is why we don’t use organic sapient slaves for manual labour. We use non-sentient thralls for a food source, and ghouls for all the heavy lifting that may be required.
Ghouls want for nothing, and follow every order until they return to nought but dust.

>From a Nearby Dock a strange ship makes landing,the hull is made from polished wood and the ship bears golden sails,from the left side a ramp slams into the ground,from inside the ship the cawing and cries of animals are heard. Soon the footsteps of three seperate beings are heard. Soon a trio of creatures is seen,they are drapped in furs and the two,assumed,males are covered into Tattoos on their right sides. Snapping from their bone jaws are heard as well as deep growls and what could be words. They seem lost as they argue

It’s my dinner. And it’s medically dead because yet again, you care little for Drakul biology and jump to wild conclusions immediately.
>>
>>2147625

Apparently the Kroak believe he awoke on their world, and united under him to drive back the Walkers, but now it's used as the unification who's of our nation. We hope to bring all his descendants under a single flag to honour him.

As for other species, we will encourage peaceful settlement outside our space, and we believe that the Federation will allow for better relocation of races.

Over 600 years ago, our home planet, Mox, was discovered to be a hotbed of volcanic activity. Our star lies far from any other inhabitable world, therefore the only option was to create ships vast enough to get us off world. The Directors are the heads of the company set up to create these ships, and what would come to be our government. I myself am on the Board, as Head Administrator of Halcyon Incorporated. We work on behalf of the CEO.

I am using no scanners. However, it has 4%. Most lifeforms are dead long before that, and this one seems normal to me.

However, I am not a doctor. Why is it so unresponsive?Has it been lobotomized?
>>2147698
Ah, how homely!
What a wonderful locale. Tell me, how long does such growing take?
>>2147699
Yes. Then we may speak of the breaches.
>>2147701
No issue.
Anyways, we can proceed to the room, but first I would like to address these new arrivals.
>>2147702
I see. So, how does this Dukedom fare?Any issues involving such resettlement?
>>2147706
It should be, though admittedly you have not yet said what you stand for, beyond your captain. Are you traders?

*Well, I won't say I enjoyed it...*

"I most certainly did. You must bear in mind, blood is not something native to our world. It's all sap. This will definitely make a splash amongst the jaded crowd. Something familiar with a totally different edge to it. I want a crate. What else do you have in the way of chemical vice? I'm always looking to go on a new trip, and a galaxy worth of sapients must have a variety of ways to alter their neural chemistry."

That I'm. or quite sure of. They desire gold above all else, and not for any real reason beyond hoarding it and making it into things to show off on their persons. Gold is actually used for a lot of things in their society, giving its abundance. Gems, red ones in particular, are highly sought after, as it the metal platinum.

More so in Yss culture, it's just that the Kroak are aware of their gold lust more than others, but would rather die than betray others for it. They believe in two methods of getting gold, working for it or fighting for it.

Garry:Yeah, what were you up to?

>Jammis shakes his hand.
>>
>>2150214
It was about who would rule over the Drakul in the aftermath of the Writhe Cure. My House won.
>>
>>2150212
This is the first time of peace for my kind since,ever really,we have much adapting to do. Why is your race here,did your king drag you here too?
>>
>>2150218
Actually, that is entirely correct. My king assigned me here to maintain relations. Some nights I think he just wanted me out of the palace.
>>
>>2150214
Not much, just had to tend to things on Unitum Ferro. Mostly mechanical repairs on our ancient machines.
>>
>>2150217
Narg:Neat, we had something like that over who will rule over Belanira...it didn't really get us anywere though
Grod:Wait, you were fighting using houses?
>>
>>2150216
I don't believe we've met before, tell me a little about yourself.
>>
>>2150222
Rarely. It was mostly Drakul clad in steel plate, ripping eachother with swords or lancing eachother with jetbike fire.
>>
>>2150227
Grod:Neat, but where do houses get involved in this?
>>
>>2150220
Ha, Rukaar,despite being out lord,was basically forced out of the Palace by those damn elders. I pledge myself to guard Rukaar after his father's death
>>
>>2150228
Some of the nobles had castles made and reinforced, with giant legs or hoverplates moving them foward.
>>
>>2150232
Grod:I see, do you live in such house? Or in a regular one?
Garry:Imperator does sound like a castle
>>2150231
Narg:Why did they do it?
>>
>>2150233
He is too young and he despises the way they rule,they have tried to kill him several times and some even waged open war against him
>>
>>2150233
I lived in the central palace until I was assigned here. I doubt it can move, it was build hundreds of years ago. And Imperator is not the name of my actual house that I live in. It’s my family name.
>>
>>2150236
Grod:Family name? Is that like a small clan?
>>2150235
Narg:That sounds bad, what will he do now?
>>
>>2150237
he has tried to unify us and advance our people,he is here to see if any aliens are useful to his cause,I am here to protect him
>>
>>2150225
I represent The Peoples Republic of Scealix but if you want me to talk about myself I’m from Sreail our capital and I’ve been with the committee for outwards affairs for 27 years, for the past 5 I’ve actually sat on the board, before that I was just a functionary. The Peoples Republic of Scealix is a democratic collection of worlds that were formerly known as the Empire of Sreail until our government decided that the best way to restructure our society to the extent needed was to lose a war.
>>
>>2150239
Narg:Huh, how did he try to do that? We had, like, two attempts to do that, one failed and one succeeded, both made by the same guy. So yeah
>>
Good day gentlemen, how goes it?
>>
>>2150237
It consists of around twenty to a hundred Drakul.
I would have to hazard on maybe, to answer your question.
>>2150231
Interesting. Our kings enemies plan from the shadows, never giving us enough solid proof to execute them.
>>
>>2150242
He tired to tell everyone to not kill eachother, when that didn't work he rallied his own army and the war begun,he proved that was indeed the child of Morgeth in that war

Indeed,the one during the battle and one after. Rukaar was absent for the actual party,he isn't a social one
>>
>>2150250
Good to hear. What is a republic, this word is unknown to me.

>>2150251
Were you upgrading it or was the previous pipe faulty?

>>2150252
I personally am not a social being, I always preferred lone hints or time with my family over major gatherings.

Garry:It was...a bit rusty
>He shows a bunch of of ducktape with parts of what was once a pipe

Strange, so you are a race of tinkerers then?

A good king should be allowed time to himself, ruling well can be very taxing.

How very odd, if there is no monarch then who runs the nation?
>>
>>2150272
If you say so
>>
>>2150268
The planet is just above being dust. If you look in our old solar system you may be able to find miscellaneous debris floating around, chunks of the planet, parts of machines, even more ancient than ours, and other things like that.
> Dell gestures out towards a distant solar system, thousands of light years away, the gears in Dell's arm spin, and click.
>>
>>2150272
Garry:Well I'am a scientist first and foremost, after that I'm an engineer. Salvaging and tinkering is more of a Clan Spazzin thing. We can still do that though
>>
>>2150272
The people vote to establish who they wish to rule and the people who get the most votes from a government for 5 years, then we have another vote.
>>
>>2150274
Are you looking to resettle? We have some worlds not suited for human life that contain valuable resources, perhaps an agreement could be found?
>>
>>2150275
Clans? Are they like Houses?

>>2150276
This sounds like a impractical form of governance to me, feels to me that a ruler has such a small amount of time to get things done.
>>
>>2150281
Garry:I guess so
>>
>>2150281
I agree.
This whole scheme sounds far too much like democracy.
>>
>>2150281
If a ruler is good then they will probably get voted for next time as well, people will likely support someone proven rather than an unknown candidate. It probably wouldn’t be very effective if we didn’t have the people who administer separate form the decision makers.
>>
>>2150285
Democracy?
>>
>>2150282
What clan do you hail from?

>>2150285
Sounds bad giving power to those who aren't politically intuned the ability to choose.
>>
>>2150287
Well, how many times can someone be chosen to be ruler?
>>
>>2150289
Garry:Great Clan Senschaft
>>
>>2150279
I appreciate the offer, but we have been doing quite well on the planet of Unitum Ferro. It happens to be a massive mobilized planet.
>Dell gestures again into outer space, but this time to a massive planet that seems to be so close, but you can barely make out details about the surface
Unitum Ferro is completely made of metal, but made specifically to cater to the People of Calor's needs
>>
>>2150288
It’s this radical scheme where everyone would be able to become absolute leader, and then the government would stage a popularity contest instead of actually seeing who is the better ruler.
Then the candidate who lied the best in their speeches gains severely limited power over the state so they can only ruin the country a small amount before the cycle repeats.
>>2150289
Agreed.
>>
>>2150295
Narg:Huh, that kinda sounds neat, we don't really do that though. So what do you guys do for fun?
>>
>>2150295
-Sounds like a waste of time,we simply let the strongest rule,keep what you kill
>>
>>2150297
No, it’s not neat at all. It’s insane.
>>
>>2150291
There isn’t a limit but usually they will do what they want to do and allow one of their followers to try and be leader or their supporters will tire of them and vote for someone else.
>>
>>2150301
Narg:Eh, insane can be fun.
>>
>>2150294
That’s an impressive feat of engineering.
>>
>>2150306
Thank you, my clan of engineers take great pride in mechinising the entire planet in only 140 years
>steam and smoke come out of a little smokestack on top of Dell's pack
>>
>>2150293
You said you were a engineer, so I assume your Clan specialisations is this.

>>2150295
Your people are ruled by a monarch then?
>>
>>2150302
So in theory a popular leader can rule for as long as they want, as long as they remain in the good graces of the population.
>>
>>2150316
Yes, we’ve only been doing this for 40 years but we haven’t seen the need to put any restrictions on how long someone can remain in power for.
>>
>>2150320
Doesn't sound too far off a monarchy to me, to be perfectly honest.
>>
>>2150321
if the people is happy i don't see the problem
>>
>>2150313
Garry:I said I'm a scientist first and foremost, so yeah, we specialize in science and engineering. Grod comes from a clan of hunters, tamers and survivalists and Narg is a shaman

This is incredible. Many species all converging at the same time. This is the dawn of a new era! A golden age for all the nations!
>>
>>2150327
Well they claim to not have a monarchy but someone can rule for life.

Welcome to the Galactic Federation, I am Dell Vapor from Unitum Ferro and the Republic of Calor, you are?
> Dell bows, his pack clicks and smokes as he does so
>>
>>2150337
Garry:We have a lot of clans, although only seven of them are members of the Great Council
>>
>>2150341
Your houses work like clans correct?
>>
>>2150337
very strange indeed
Anyway how do you do ?
>>2150334
may the Dawn shine upon you i am Karazim of the Vetarian Coallition
>>
>>2150338
>>2150344
Greetings! Greetings! A tale of wonder and glory is forged this day. Of newfound brothers amongst the stars!
>>2150339
Hail friend! All is well in our land, and seemingly in all others as well. The light of a thousand thousand suns shines upon us this day.
>>
>>2150346
I am not familiar with your clans, but every Drakul is part of one house. There are many, some only one or two family members large, others spanning thousands of more Drakul. The important ones number three in total
>>
>>2150341
A king you say? The highest rank of power amongst the Yss is Grand Baron.

>>2150345
We have many high born houses, the greatest is the House of Mexe.

>>2150347
I do well, thank you. My youngest son is to be wed soon.
>>
>>2150352
Indeed,much like our clans,though recently they have been starting to phase out with all of the marriages the council keeps forcing, which is humorous to see Rukaar roar at hordes of crazed whores
>>
>>2150353
Garry:Neat, we don't really have a ruling clan, although Vardot does hold three votes, but their leader is the current Scrap Lord, so yeah
>>
>>2150353
oh, very nice
>>
>>2150321
We have a number of elected posts in our government, there are quite a few checks on the power of any one individual although we expect them to be able to work together for the good of the republic.
>>
>>2150359
So you elect a ruler too then?

>>2150371
My line is secured firmly in the lives of my 4 sons, previously 5, may the ancestors welcome him for his courage.

>>2150393
Tell me this,mit these posts that hold the power to check your elected leader are filled with those who are in league with the leader, won't that make him more powerful then?
>>
>>2150399
As long as the people can replace them it is the people who are powerful.
>>
>>2150399
Garry:Kinda, I think. He's our first ruler since, well, forever
>>
>>2150347
Salutations friend! The sun grows ever bright upon us!
>>
>>2150420
I think some of those present don’t consider that optimism.
>>
>>2150428
This may be true, but the glory of it friend! An hour is upon all the nations of glory in biological unity! Cultures are colliding in the Halls of commerce! A celebration is due!
>>
>>2150460
True enough.
>>
>>2150409
Sounds like creating the illusion of power for the commoners.

>>2150410
The term Grand Baron was reestablished 400 years ago with the end of the 50 years war. Prior to that there hadn't been one for over 3000 years.
>>
>>2150526
In a sense we are but the main benefit is to make sure that those in power are mindful that they serve at the discretion the people. Even if most people can’t obtain power those in power can’t do without them.
>>
>>2150526
Garry:Neat, we had something like that, a war of unification. It didn't end well
>>
>>2148420
That seems rather bad. Why do you tolerate such cloak and dagger antics?
>>2148428
Crimson diamonds? Why is that?

>>2148448
Sure.

>Carter's third body waddles over, carrying the vial of charcoal.
>>2148468
Eh, last time I checked injecting charcoal is dangerous for many. However, perhaps not for your race.
Research is needed on the subject, but charcoal apparently amplifies psionic feelings while deadening one's physical sensations.
>>2149505
Welcome! I am Carter, the ambassador of the Carnem Wastes. And you are?
>>2149931
A god? Do you have any beliefs coinciding with her, or just veneration?

>>2150104
I see. Well, selling those would surely net a fortune.

>>2148499
>Carter's ship parks in the vacuum of space, and he disembarks, attempting to board the ship defended.He tries a vox communicator.

Hello? I assume there are survivors, yes?

>moanai leaves the ship,a large animal that looks like a lizard dog walks by her
"Hmm?"
"oh because it'd cause another war and war is bad of business"
>>
>>2150540
Well, what are the requirements to vote? While we have few voting procedures on Yss, many of he Merhcant Princedoms run on voting certain jobs. To vote there you need to be a certain age and own property.

>>2150547
We unified after it but at a hideous cost to life, millions of soldiers had been killed and some Barony's and Princedoms were whiled out entirely.

>>2150548
Simply what I said, red diamonds. Red diamonds are the rarest form of diamonds, and as such are highly sought after by the Kroak. There isn't even a abundance of them on their own worlds.
>>
>>2150548
I have enough wealth. I have enough wealth for several lifetimes in-fact.

I will simply do what I must to live long enough to spend it all, which means doing my job and keeping relations.
>>
>>2150554
Garry:I see
>>
>>2150563
Narg:Oh by the way, what's with this mask? Also, tell me about Nox, do you have anything neat there?
>>
>>2150554
There’s an age requirement and you need to be a citizen. At the moment we don’t have laws to allow outsiders to become citizens as we wanted to make sure that when we made them they would be compatible with the federations laws.
>>
>>2150576
My mask? It is my mask. What of it?
I see that you xenos do not wear them, which sickens me just a small amount, but I expected worse.

And it is dark on Nox.
>>
>>2150563
>Moanai looks at the Drakul
Excuse me miss,have you seen a other of my kind,kinda brutish,tall,violent?
>>
>>2150581
Narg:How dark?
>>
>>2150578
Well I hope your "Democracy" works out for you, while I don't like the idea of it personally one should never chastise the path of civil governance a friend has taken.
>>
>>2150582
There was one called Guthak, or something of the sort.
Do you refer to him?
>>
>>2150582
Grod:There was a guy named Guthak, he's near your ship I think
>>
>>2150597
Yes that's him,have you seen him?
>>
>>2150602
Yes, he was eating a rather large creature earlier spraying blood all over his ships ramp. It was quite a waste if I’m honest.
>>
>>2150604
Did you see where he went, or must i send Hokaii here to find him?
>she pats the animal
>>
>>2150549
Just try not to overdose on it.
Too much is bad for you.
>>2150553
I did not recommend war, but clearly they attempted assassination. Why do you not complain?

Unless they have stopped trying to kill Rukaar.
>>2150554
Hmm.
Well, that is peculiar, but I can see why others would like them.
>>2150563
>>2150581
Are masks important in your culture?
>>2150582
Yeah, he was roaring at me earlier.
>>
>>2150613
Grod:No, we haven't seen him
>He looks at Hokaii
>>
>>2150633
>>2150636
Damn,well then...
>she couches down to Hokaii and the three jawed beast smells the cloth in her hands then sprints off.
so how are you all?
>>
>>2150640
Fine. Just checking if there were ship survivors, is all.

That, and awaiting the Ploraxian and UE ambassadors. I must speak to them over recent breaches.
>>
>>2150593
Thankyou, I hope we have a long and fruitful friendship.
>>
>>2150640
Grod:Were good, cooling system in our shuttle is repaired so spontanious combustion of our engines is unlikely
>>
>>2150633
Yes, quite.
Each one of us wears one and the craftsmanship or quality of each mask reflects our social status.
The lowest of the low have masks of driftwood and tape and such materials, while the highest nobles have masks of hardened steel, gold, gems and ivory.
>>
>>2150645
Breaches?
>>
>>2150645
I spent the night thinking of possible use of this collection of aliens,i honestly don't know how useful half of you
>>
>>2150633
They believe them to have significance amongst their society, they use them for very specially occasions and the finest of their jewellery.

>>2150647
I too hope for this, we are seeking to expand our communications with other empires amongst these stars.
>>
>>2150645
Narg:Breaches?
>>
>>2150664
Hmm,would you be intrested in some trade deals by chance miss...hmm i didn't hear your name
>>
>>2150653
What a strange way of life. So, what if one is removed? I assume the punishment must be harsh.
>>2150658
>>2150665
Yes, breaches. The Wastes had some earlier, plagued the trade routes. I must deliberate with them, to separate fiction from fact, sailor tales from historical accounts.
>>2150660
Use is relative, and this is a gathering meant to unite parts of the galaxy in collaboration.

Plus, there is good food and drink. For the most part, anyways.
>>2150664
So, how much would they fetch for? Perhaps some here have deposits of such diamonds.

Regardless, given that I am occupied in 3 other bodies, I think I will go for a stroll. A sale in Jolevor Marketplace is commencing, and I would like to see what is offered. Perhaps something unique, or important to an ambassador here.

Anyone wish to join me?
>>
>>2150680
Narg:Sooo, how are you gonna do it?
>>
>>2150680
Why not,i'll accompany you flesh man
>>
>>2150680
The punishment is the execution of your entire family by public hanging. To remove the mask of another is treason, and treasonous lowlifes must be purged.
I am not familiar with these wastes you speak of, but have nothing better to do than join you.
>>
>>2150672
Baron Taxla, I speak for the Dukedom. And yes red diamonds are a priority of the KMC, I can act as a medium for their interests.

>>2150680
The KMC is willing to trade various jewels, unprocessed ore and refined ore, as well as products created from these materials.
>>
>>2150688
slow down Sir Taxla, what exactly are these red diamonds and why do you think i'd have them?
>>
>>2150688
Garry:You could look at markets of Clan Ulami, they love trading
>>
>>2150683
Discuss breaches, or unite the galaxy? I intend to speak with both, as I was present during the breaches. Uniting the galaxy is a difficult task, on the other hand, so I have no clue.
>>2150685
Sure. Simply follow me. And you may want to bring your king. With the bodyguard gone, he could be attacked, for instance.

Just a thought, since it seems you fear an assault will occur.
>>2150686
Rather brutal, but to each their own.
It is understandable you have not heard of the Wastes, as you were embroiled in civil war not too long ago. However, if you have heard of mysterious ship disappearances, then perhaps it was them encountering my homelands.

Regardless, you are welcome to join us.

>Carter leaves the ambassadorial meetup, and the door closes behind him.
>>
>>2150698
if what his presence i shall get him,wait here
>she goes back into the ship
>>
>>2150692
Red diamonds are literally just that, the rarest form of diamonds. As for me thinking you have any I don't know if you do, I was merely saying that the KMC is currently looking for them.

>>2150693
If they are looking for huge quantities of gold and silver, we are the right people.
>>
>>2150698
>Jezebel follows Carter
So randomly and without warning ships can suddenly vanish onto the surface of your home planet?
Is this meant to make any sense?

Though this does sound a lot like what happened in the penultimate battle of the Factionis wars, what with an entire Cyberius battle force vanishing during a skirmish at the border of their battle complex
>>
>>2150720
Narg:Aight, I'll post a notice for that later
>>
>>2150708
No, no, you do not need to fetch him. I was simply saying that to leave a bodyguard, or have him under protection, would make sense. Given that he is a king and all.

>Carter exits, and beyond the door lies the city of Trojan.Lights adorn the entire area, with neon billboards and advertising dotting the gigantic buildings. Ships of all shapes and sizes fly above, and personal speeders zoom by, as the streets are packed with aliens, robots, and other strange beings. Multiple shops are nearby, and if one squints Carter can be spotted viewing merchandise in the distance.
>>
>>2150734
>Moanai and Rukaar stride to the group lead by carter
I have brought him
>>
>>2150688
Hmm. I assume your mineral deposits must be large, to trade such valuables for luxuries.

>>2150730
>Carter's third body responds.

It is...diffirent than a planet, per say.
Regardless, if you are coming, you best be soon.
I think I found myself a good deal!

>And with that, both other bodies of Carter Decay, leaving the two others, one in Trojan and the other in Space assisting Voidwatch.
>>
>the feoroxian take a nice break pounding down the streets of trojan, the entourage leaping over other inhabitants of the city chasing an unfortunate rodent the size of a pig, while Hears looks on from the embassy, he smiles as his men close on the prey, heedless of the dazed and fearful populace that they leave in their wake

Garry:Yea!
>And so they explore the planet...until they come across electronics shop in nearest shopping mall
>Garry leans against the glass near it
Garry:We need to buy some of this stuff
Grod:But we don't have money for it. We don't even have cubes, let alone their currency
Garry:Hmmmm
Narg:Oh, I have an idea! We perform tricks! I will perform magic infront of the crowd!
Grod:Good idea.
>Trio goes to the area near the malls front doors

>>2150752
>Rukaar stares at the flesh man
What kind of hell were you born in
>>
>>2150752
Murder is one of the largest sources of various precious metals in all the Dukedom, and the Kroak seek out the worlds and asteroids that would hold such valuable materials. As such we have a abundance of them.

>>2150732
Fantastic, the KMC will be delighted to hear of it.
>>
>>2150752
>she exits the diplomatic building and eventually ends up on top of its roof, aiming to spy anything interesting in the city

>>
>>2150850
He'll come back eventually, he is too loyal to my father's memory not to
>>
>>2150853
When did you lose him exactly?
>>
>>2150752
>A man walks into the room
I have returned Carter,fellow ambassadors.
>He sits down with him
Now what is this about rifts? And i heard Markon has some sort of task for us as well.
>>
>>2150855
I went to sleep, moanai stayed up thinking about ways to make you aliens useful. He was outside
>>
>>2150839
Well in short I'm looking for economichul help caush basically a few long long times ago I was part of an empire we the robots were servants and I and a planet of us have awakened. When we awakened everything was overgrown and our biological masters were nowhere to be seen we have so far got the planet into hairyly working order and scouted out another. We don't know why everyone has gone or why we are the only ones awakened and we need help getting back on our feet and at least being able to defend ourselves
>>2150841
Thersh people willing to code anything if they are bored
>>2150842
No I'm fine jush purging the last rogue code now

Where did you all come from?!?
>>
>>2150859
Grod:Last we saw him he was near your ship eating something
>>
>>2150859
Right...
>>2150863
Well that’s... odd.
Did you try cloning your masters to bring them back? And are you sure you don’t know where they went? And why did you go to sleep?
>>
>>2150871
You sound as if you don't believe me
>>
>>2150874
Oh no, I believe you. Do you not have a phone to contact him?
>>
>>2150871
No trace remains of them we have been gone a rather long time our sun has changed colour. We went to sleep because we were on guard duty we were awakened when our systems detected an unidentified ship. We have come across the ancient war titans of our own they were built to last but the AI core on all of them were unrecoverable. Since then we have branched out and formed the 5 castes from what is left of our race.
>>
>>2150887
Phone? Is that a Horn of some kind?
>>
>>2150887
>>2150874
Garry:Maybe we can use our shuttle to look for him
>>
>>2150888
Well that’s completely inexplicable. Good luck on whatever you are doing xeno.
>>2150889
No. Did you never invent the phone? How did you get to space?
>>2150890
This seems like a bad idea, given your habit of crashing into things.
>>
>>2150894
Garry:I'll have you know that we didn't crash here, we actually landed, aaand landing gear is working...sorta
>>
>>2150780
Hmm. Were these asteroids inhabited?
>>2150776
>roll for your success at performing for them
>>2150857
>Carter waves to Karl outside.
>>2150739
>>2150777
In the Carnem Wastes, a land of flesh and bone.It is not the most peaceful place, for sure.
Give me a moment.

>Carter turns to who he is haggling with, a three snouted creature holding a strange cylinder.

Listen, I don't care what sort of story this has. 100 credits is all I'll pay unless you throw in the slugthrower.
>>
Rolled 3 (1d100)

>>2150898
>>
>>2150890
That could work
>>2150894
Boons from the storm,and we may have but constant wars throws technological advancements around. One part of Ru could have nuclear reactors when another thinks it's just discovered the wheel
>>
>>2150898
No, thankfully. The KMC inspects them to make sure that they aren't inhabited, as that would mean a lengthy process of resettlement, thus loss of profits.
>>
>>2150904
Well that’s certainly.... interesting...
What is the storm exactly?
>>
>>2150913
Does your planet not have storms?
The one I referred to is the creator and destroyer,a giant ball of chaos and raw power. It sometimes spits out machines and metal from above.
>>
>>2150916
Our planets have minor lightning storms from time to time, but nothing that spits out metal and machinery.
>>
>>2150906
Have you found anything besides asteroids in these journeys?

>He turns to the salesmen

Look, 100 is my last offer.

>Carter shows Baron Taxla the cylinder. It is inscribed with strange markings.

Hell, I have been trying to buy this for some time, but he won't throw in the item there.

>He points towards a slugthrower. Decorated with alien stabilizers and with a modified energon pulse sight, it is a diamond in the rough of the scrap being sold.
>>2150900
>The audience is angry, with calls of "Faker" and "Get out of here bums" among the boos.
Even a rock is thrown.
However, someone in the confusion drops their wallet. They notice, but have not picked it up.
>>
>>2150927
>Grod shield the others
Narg:Hey look someone dropped a wallet
>Narg picks it up
Narg:He opens it up to find out who's the owner
>>
>>2150932
>The wallet says "Forgaro Mi'stanti" and shows a mothman, looking nothing like the man who just dropped it.
>>
>>2150946
Narg:Hmmmm...we must find this Forgaro Mi'stanti!
>Narg goes to the nearest police departament
Narg:That's where were supposed to go, right?
Grod:I think yes
>>
>>2150920
Your storms are weak
>>
>>2150927
We found the floating husks of a old ringworld, similar in design to the Avarians ones. We haven't explored it yet, as we don't want to upset the Avarians.
>Taxla ripumages around in his satchel, produces several large gems
Would this cover the cost of that item for my friend?
>>
>>2150965
Thank you.
>>
>>2150951
>With the crowd formed earlier now dispersing, the Trio made it to the police station. Entering, it is expansive, with visitors around. Fighters are flying in and out, painted in the distinctive orange color of the police force on Trojan.

>Few police officers are here, but a large, tusked alien, seeming avian in nature apart from the long, thin arms and noodle like fingers, staffs the front desk. It looks bored.
>>2150982
Avarians you say? Who are they?
And thanks.

>Carter takes them, then offers it to the seller.

Here, I'll thrown in this too, if you get me that compass.

>The deal is made!
>>
>>2150993
Narg:Hmmm...
>Narg goes to the desk, he's a bit shorter than the desk, so Grod picks him up and holds him infront of the desk
Narg:Erm, excuse me, but someone dropped this wallet on the street near the mall, his name is...
>He looks at id card
Narg:Forgaro Mi'stanti
>He places wallet on the desk
>>
>>2150989
Weakness is a compliment to your race?
>>
>>2151020
It is good to not have strong enemies.
Why would we wish for powerful storms to cause chaos?

Ye, it be a full on reboot. Though not really an alternate timeline either. No worries though, just follow the rules and feel free to ask questions on what has changed.

What's this?
>A symbol is imprinted on it, it looks like a star with a crown on both ends
It looks familiar to me, like I've seen it somewhere. Very familiar.

Narg:Why are they making so much fuss about some moth person with a funny name?
Grod:Dunno, maybe his name is a bad word here

Really? Is it some kind of company?
The guy mentioned some treasure hunt.
Hold up.
>>2151113
>Carter notices the CANNOT BE swirling within the chamber.

Huh. It seems another ambassador has arrived.
>>
>>2151125
Really is that all you have to say about this? Does this happen every day?!?

>>2151113
We are here to form a galactic federation, we are still at the early stages.

>>2151130
I have seen stranger aliens in my time, my friend.
It likely simply wishes to join us.

Also, why do you seem intoxicated?
>>
>>2151119
Don't worry I doubt it'll harm us,though if I do die make sure my corpse serves a use
>>
>>2151136
Garry:By serving a use you mean...
>>
>>2151136
As you wish, does that mean you do not wish it returned to your people?
>>
Aw really is it that obvious? I thought I purged it. The main reason is how vast and amazing this Trojan place is and how insignificant compared to literally any other civilisation I've talked to here (which is admittedly 3) Is the remnants of my empire
>>
>>2151136
It doesn’t even make any sense?
What am I even looking at?
>>
>>2151138
Food. I'm sure my skull could make a club

Your empire is insignificant? What happened to it?
>>2151147
Some beings are more..dimensional in nature.
Perhaps it is a strange alien from another locale.
>>
>>2151147
I'm not sure at this point,if it attacks get behind me
>>
>>2151125
>Taxla checks it again
Wait I do remember it. When we fought in Heavens View, after we had conquered it, we did some sight seeing and found a ancient star chart, with various symbols denoting worlds or something all over. This symbol was one of them, located away from some others.
>>
>>2151149
Your a Spirit then? Have you been summoned?
>>
We don't know we were awoken from our sleep cycle to find everyone but us gone though we have found a lot of ruins and a few war machines no concrete evidence of what happened. As far as we know the galaxy spanning empire has been reduced to 2 worlds

Get off of me xeno!

Sigh, Dilectus xeno. Speak Dilectus.

And why would I do that?

Garry:I see, can I use skull as a decoration for the shuttle instead?

Narg:Excuse me, do you know a guy named Grectoros Gains?

I’m not sure if behind would matter should this thing seek to do one of us harm.
>>
>>2151160
I'm 12 feet tall and I weigh a ton,I can take the attack as the rest of you escape
Unless you want to die in which case be my guest

>>2151166
Right. That’s rather honourable for a xeno, isn’t it?

I'm trying to help, it's better than nothing isn't it

I see,

Maybe it is a suitcase or something.
Or a holoscroll.
>>2151151
It has been a few hours, no issue. I bought a slugthrower.
