Long enough for it to not matter. The shadow glides over you, and you watch as the worker Dron jump towards a massive and terrifying creature.It smelled not of your colony like the Princess, and it smashed and ripped apart the workers that attacked it as the Princess tried to stand and run.She only makes it a few steps, before a glob of acid is spat onto one of her legs, which melts instantly and sends her to the ground, she letting out a screech of pain that is quickly Mirroed by one of the things hidden in the clouds.The creature surges forward,Leave half eaten and smashed workers to die as their bodies tried to move with whatever energy they had left.

You watch as the creature’s teeth dig into the neck of the Corpse it had made, thrashing about violently as its pericing legs stabbed into the remaining leg. With a crunch and a ripping sound, the monster pulled with all its might and ripped the upper body from the lower, throwing the lower half out of sight over a pile of corpses as it bit more and more into its prize.The wind grew louder, and what sounds like thunder in your ears was heard. Then a flash of purple was seen, and the monster seemed to simply...pop, spewing chitin and gore across the charred dirt.Cont...

She was panting, her body covered in cracks and blood seeping from cuts all over. However, she stands strong hovering over the corpse that was once her daughter.You feel a wave of sadness flow over, a cool stream of sorrow filling your mind as you watch the queen crouch down and cup the cheek of the corpse gently.Then, you feel your blood boil, rage filling your sense as your vision turns red.So strong is this feeling, you instantly Attack the body above your hole, ripping a mouthful of meat and chitin and swallowing it whole.[+1 Biomass]When your sense return, you look back out of the hole and see the queen staring back at you, her hand at the mouth of the tunnel and beckoning you to come closer.>>Do not be afraid.

>>2170679>>2170685You carefully climb out of your whole, skittering closer to her hand, until she gently scoops you up. Her scale immediatly registers as your body balances in her palm, her other hand gently gliding the tips of her fingers across your carapace.>>You are different...You have a spark, just like I once developed...She said, bringing you close to her face so she would stare into your eyes. You feel so small, not physicall, but in all ways possible you could perceive.>>That spark made it possible for you to let my Daughter die...Let you choose to instead hide when she cried out.There was an edge to the voice, one that tinted your vision red as the Queen’s anger seemed to briefly spike.>>I do not blame you though...This is not how you are meant to first see the world. But there is not time. You must start anew. Find a way to survive, steal or make a colony of your own, whatever you do: Do not let your Mother be forgotten.With those words, she tapped her finger between your eyes. Your body began to grow heavy, and your vision began to cloud.>>Sleep through the nightmare, and find your dreamShe lowers you back to your little hidey hole, your limbs turning to stone, as you spot something in the sky, and the wind began to screech once more.>>Above all else, Kill the Prince of BladesWith that, your consciousness faded, and the last thing you see was your queen spinning to face the approaching enemy, and then blackness.

There were bits of chitin strewn around, with a familiar looking arm twisted horribly in a heap. The hands seemed big enough to hold you. However, you don't really care much about corpses. You also notice that the bodies before seemed to have been mostly eaten, as Chitin seemed to only remain for the most part.However, there were some small corpses that looked like you. They were pretty corpsey and untouched, except for flies and small creatures seeking to feed.>Eat the small corpses?>Eat the arm corpse?>Go explore?>other?

>>2170881Unlike last time, you were quick to pay attention to what was occurring around you. The sound of flesh tearing and slurping fluids. There was another creature nearby, likely coming to the once battle field to scavenge just as you were.It was nearby, and from the sounds of its growls and movements, it was much, much larger than your tiny self.>Run?>Go say hi?>Set up an Ambush?>Back in the hole?>Run?>Other?

>>2170941>>2170928>>2170927Deciding that the best way to evaluate the possible threat was to go and observe it. So with bravery beyond your size, you wandered towards the sounds.Feast on a half eaten large corpse was something you for once didn't recognize, which usually meant to your knowledge that it wasn't from your colony or possibly any colony. It seemed focused on its feeding, and has not yet noticed your existence. >Attack it? >Talk ?>Try and steal some food?>Other?(Might be heading to bed soon)

The smell of the veritable feast must have attracted them to the area. You hear a hiss of steam, and the rising temperature of the ground and air became clear to you.

Passing by the empty shells of various creatures, all of whom seem familar like usual, you come across the remains of an even more familar corpse. You vaguely remember this creature asking for your aide in you head, but such details are hard to keep track of for a worker like yourself. So, you approach the corpse which consisted of a head and half a torso, where the cut was a tear diagonally from the waist to the right shoulder, leaving an arm. Truley a great harvest that would leave you well supplied with Biomass, maybe even olding a few adaptations like the arm corpse from before.>W-worker....h-help me....pro....protect....me...Voice, one you recognize.

The Almost corps elooks at you, their eyes weak as they watch you grow close and then when you have crawled onto them.>H-help...me...You look at the almost corpse for a second, before tilting yourself forward and beginning to rip into the unprotected neck of the almost corpse. There is a surge of movement, as the almost corpse tries to throw you off, its remaining hand hitting your shell weakly with all its strength, and scratching at your carapace.>Tra-traitor...I-I wo...won't die here...Her arm pushes itself under you, and tries to throw you off, the almost corpse letting out a low growl and a weak hiss out of anger.>Roll Str to hold on

>>2179314>>2179316The creature has some spikes on its body, commonly a deterrent for larger predators. It has eight legs, four on each side, with the front leg on the left side lifted up and tucked under the body.It’s mandibles are clicking and appear pretty pointy. There are some wounds on its body, but it’s carrying itself as if it were at full strength.It’s eyes, having 16 of them, likely give it pretty good perception. >Spend time to further contemplate and analyze for more information?

Is there anything we can evolve yet?

>>2179330>>2179332>>2179333Looking at the other legs, they appear to be holding more weight and thus there is a slight hesitation with each movement where the left side must perform any action. The legs look also under more strain than the right side, likely from having to hold more weight.It’s possible that if the right leg was crippled, it would be considerably slowed or even topple over as its balance is ruined. It seems to either be unaware of the risk, or commiting to a strong front.>Battle plan?>Run?

Without Hesitation, you charged off into the darkness, away from the sounds and noises coming closer. The Horned Dron hesitates, but a cracking sound made it jump and scuttle after you, letting out distressed squeaks as it did.You charge into the darkness, and quickly became engulfed in it, unable to see an single thing except the light behind you coming from the chrysallis room you had just abandoned. You hear the Horned Dron moving behind you, still making noises but now a bit quieter.>Roll Perception to see if you can navigate the darkness.

It illuminated an entry way into a larger room. Your Horned friend immediatly charged for the green light ecstatically, leaving you in its dust.>Run after them?>Approach with caution?>Wait?>Turn back?>Other?

>>2183546>>2183550>>2183558>>2183571While your fellow Dron seems to throw caution to the wind, you slow your step and make your approach carefully, quickly losing sight of the Horned Dron as they scuttled down a slanted floor.Eventually, you poke you head out of the tunnel exit, and examine the room.In the center of the room, there is a large dome covered in what looked like stone but was perhaps almost imperceptibly moving. Strewn around the dome are a couple half dissolved corpses, all of them reminding you of the princess you ate, but smaller and clearly from a different colony. The Horned Dron was happily chewing on some undissolced flesh he had found.Placed randomly on the walls, strange bronze flowers holding green crystals spread light throughout the room. Something about it all felt a bit off.>Join your new friend in the free food?>Examine the bronze flowers?>Examine the Dome?>search the room?>Other?

>>2183601>>2183634Letting out a loud chirp, you caught the attention of your fellow Dron. Letting out a sound and motioning to follow, you reentered the shadows, ecited, then reentered again to try and get him to follow.The Horned Dron tilted their head, looked at the meal they were having, then looked at your again, before ripping off a chunk of the flesh and nibbling on it as they fwalked up to you.They chirpped questioningly, watyching head down the tunnel and back to the previous room. They followed, and soon was leading the way back again, still nibbling on their chunk of stolen flesh."For the last time you savage cockroach, I count only 298 of these damn things. I demanded 300."You hear voices from the room ahead, angry ones."I assure you I have collected the number you requested. The little ones must have woken up and wandered off. They can't have gotten far."They second voice was softer, and very calm, almost like steady stream"They better not have, else our deal is off."The room is just up ahead, and you manage to catch sight of the angry voice, though the other voice is blocked by the pile.

How do you even stand that wretched sun?"The calm voice stepped forward, coming into view as they walked around the angry person."Oh, it's not so bad to be honest. Why, just yesterday, whn the sun was at it's highest, I was blessed to see one of your little spies burst into flames. It was a very stunning display of red as they burned." The calm figure muffled a laugh, that had a slight clicking to it.The angry voice glared at the calm one, but then shook his head and oulled out something that looke dlike the bronze flowers from the Dome room, tapping at the crystal and causing it to make noises "Well, even if you find some some glee in it, I can't wait to get back to Juka. I might even make it back in time for the festival."A light shot out from the crystal, the man aiming the bronze flower at the pile and having the light glide over them all.The Calm Dron, who lazilly watched the angry person, tilted their head" Festival? What is that?""You'll find out if you manage to find my damn specimens." He said, not paying anymind as the calm Dron's eyes flashed a searing yellow and they glared at the back of his head.The calm Dron let out a sigh, and began to walk off towards the warm tunnel "Perhaps they tried to exit the caves?"The Daguran was left alone to study his chrysallis', with the Horn dron seeming ready to retreat back to the room with light and food.>Try to sneak past the angry man and go to the tunnel with light?>Try to sneak past and go follow the Dron?>Try to sneak past and climb up to the cieling?>Try and sneak attack the Man?>Walk out and say Hi?>keep hiding?>Hea dback to the Dome room?>Other?

Seems he’ll do anything to win the Primier’s favor.”You manage to catch those words as you walk away, and soon the noises become distant as you delve back into the dark tunnel.After walking the path enough, you and the Horned Dron easily make it through rather quickly, partially having memorized the way. Now, you stood once more in the Dome Room.The Horned Dron looked to you briefly, then watched as you scuttled forward and began to devour the closest corpse, the Horned Dron immediatly charging forward to do the same.You spend a few minutes eating, and then exhaust one of the corpses of any obvious edible flesh.>>Gained ten Biomass>Adpatation UnlockedAdvanced: Lullaby: release a soft song that makes targets sleepy.

At first they are confused, then disinterested, then annoyed. The fling a rock at you, which hit the ground harmlessly near you, but it seemed to think the message was clear as it went back to its feasting.>Try again?>Just go ahead and eat the corpse?>Perform a different action?

>>2186186>>2186152You shake your head in a bit of annoyance, but give up none the less and find another corpse to chew on. This time, you managed to find one whose head was intact, and happily began to feast.>>A choir singing, sisters working together to help their queen awaken. Suddenly screaming, a pale figure.

Each Rank grants you plus 2 to Charisma checks when interacting with Mortal races, which normally suffers a -30 due to being a monster.Letting out a satisfied chirp, you look and count two more free corpses, your Horned ally having already eaten through three others. You hear shouting from down the tunnel, likely from the angry man. It’s rather heated, until it suddenly stops.>Go for thirds?>Examine the flowers?>Eat a flower?>Examine the Dome?>Try and eat the Dome?>Search the room?>Go investigate the Cacoon room?>Other?

>>218628016+2=1818+1=19Great Success!Taking a moment to digest your food, you wandered around the room, searching it for anything interesting. Since the room was pretty simple, you easily find two thingsFirst, you discover a crate at the far wall that had been partially covered by some dirt and rocks. Inside we’re about a dozen more Bronze flowers, the petals closed over the green crystal and hiding it away. On the side of the crate we’re some symbols you couldn’t read.Second, almost right behind the Dome and leading under it, was a small tunnel you could fit through that lead down hill. The passage was dark, but the tunnel was pretty smooth.As your Horned friend went for fourths and you were about to dig into thirds, you heard a soft humming coming from the dark tunnel, and it was growing closer.>>Gain twelve Biomass. 38 total Biomass>>Adaptation Unlocked: >Advanced: Blade: You Grow a Blade like weapon, sharp as steel and twice as tough.

>>2186341>>2186356Thinking fast, you scuttle over and grab one of the flowers with your pincers, requiring both pincers to hold it effectivly. You then charged for the small tunnel, just as you saw yellow eyes in the darkness of the larger tunnel.“Oh little ones? Are you in here?”You slide down, hearing a short surprised chirp from your Horned comrade before your started to slide and rapidly descend into the darkness.>Try to slow your self?>Let it take you?>Other?

Well, Come on now, enough games. Come back up here. Now.” They said, and you felt a massive pressure on your brain.>Will Save!

You begin to turn around, and look at the face of the Pale Dron, the yellow eyes glowing with glee.“That welp of a man it going to take us far away from this horrible place little one. All I need from you is to be a good little worker. Now, come to me.”You begin to walk forward, steadily going back up the tunnel.>Fight back? (roll will)>Let it happen?>Cry for help?>Other?

You manage to slow your ascent, causing the Pale dron to let out a growl, and their face to somehow shudder unnaturally.>”I said, Come To Me.” The pressure grew harder to resist, your very mind betraying you as you both wanted to go to them yet also wanted to run from them.>Resist?

You felt your desires, you feelings, everything you were being pushed aside by some primal urge to please this Pale dominator.>>You are different...You have a spark, just like I once developed...Those words suddenly come to your mind. Your mind stops buckling, settling underneath the weight. Then, with a cataclysmic screech that shook the stone around you, you pushed back.>”What?!”The Pale dron’s mind was bashed by your own metal power, breaking their hold on you.>Dealt 5 Mental damage to Pale DronThe Pale Dron held their head for a moment, seeming dazed.

What feels like an half an hour passes of you just sliding along, thinking about what had happened up above, before suddenly you launch out of the tunnel and smack into something wet in some room that felt pretty warm.Pulling yourself from the wet substance, you land on the ground, and see a lot of partially disolved carapce and pools of dissolved flesh you assume.

>>2186756>Left it is
>>2186765>>2186760Choosing your path, you head down the left tunnel, entering a tunnel that completely dark. Without your Horned ally, you stumble through the dark, though fortunately the path seems rather clear of obstacles.Your journey eventually brings you to a long central hall, lit by what looks like a crack in the ceiling with light bleeding through. It is rather stuffy but otherwise tolerable in the room. Strewn across the hall is mor epools of dissolved flesh and carapace, with a few forgotten body parts left to rot. One particular featur eof note was the corpse that apparently had been smashed against a central pillar so hard they were stuck to the rock, their juices having stained the stone.Down the left path there is a red light coming from one of the rooms, and a slow clicking sound as well.Up the right path, there is a large entryway, with large Dron shaped smears on the walls and what appeared to have once been doors lying shattered on the ground.Your flower shakes a little, than stops.>Go down the left path?>Go up the right?>Activate the flower?>search the immediate area?>Go back?>Other?
