My name is Mary.

I own a dungeon.

Not by choice, mind you. I was forced into this when the previous owner placed a curse on me after I tried to audit him. Now I'm the ruler of this place until.... Well, for the foreseeable future.

But I'm trying to make the most of it while I'm here.

>-Upgrade Ashley with a Poison rune.
Remember the thing about how using opposites runes in the same monster is a bad idea? Ashley already has the Heal rune.
No. 1050870 ID: 63a1ed

Okay, well we have a lot we can do right now so lets start with what others have suggested first, as I tend to agree. First and fore-most, we should look at using some runes to gussy up some of the key areas. We can add runes over time to other places, but to start, lets go with the main event show pieces.

First, we should add a fancy rune (or two) to Curi's throne room. We can then add things like pillars, banners, drapes and more to add some dynamic areas for players to fight around and give our queen the grace she deserves.

Second, we should spend a little money to upgrade the divide between the Citadel and the Hamlet to make a mini-boss room for Colt. He's available to be a potential boss that players can fight or pass depending on what they do(or skip) in the Hamlet. For speed-runners and those that just want to fight their way into the citadel, we can give him room to breathe. In addition, I would propose using a wood+wind rune setup. Wood for the drawbridge that people would fight on, and wind to add atmosphere and some environmental hazards.

Third, we should upgrade the ruins in the same way. Mini-Boss room for an eventual Cult leader boss. Gazer works for now as an underling, but I think a true cult witch will be better in the future (More on that later). Since Gazer functions as a boss of sorts for now, best to give them room to fly. I propose Holy and Chaos. Holy to represent the ruins as what they once were (which explains the murals) and Chaos to explain the creeping influence and corruption of the cult and to add a spooky atmosphere.

Finally, for rooms, I propose that we use the empty room now as a royal library that can be used to discover some lore both public and secret about Slimecrown, its denizens and the monster down below. E

Ashley has enough runes that it should be fine.
No. 1050873 ID: 63a1ed

I am inclined to agree with the others saying that a poison rune on Ashley (or Aspen) don't really need to be used.

Any of our central Alarunes are really there as helpful NPCs that generate money for us. Turning them into fighters doesn't really feel necessary as they have a role and fulfil it well.
No. 1050874 ID: 7e0c15

String Slime + Tame - Beast Keeper; works at the farm watching over the animals there. Maybe have the strings be more like a lasso for a cowgirl aesthetic? Strings sap the strength of anything caught in them.

Cloth Slime + Levitate - Ghost Slime; haunts the graveyard, trying to scare anyone who gets too close. Levitate to float and do poltergeist-y stuff, Cloth to look like a bed sheet ghost.

Forest Fairy + Space - Add teleportation shenanigans to her bag of tricks for making people lost in the woods.

And any other buffs should probably go to the Citadel proper since it should be on a higher level curve than the Hamlet, although I don't really have any strong opinions on what those buffs should be. Princesses would probably get the most use since they're both challenges and recruitable help, but I'd also like to see some of the weaker ones who haven't really had much time to shine grow stronger too.

For upgrades to locations, the main one to me is adding dark to the ruins so you're not using Dark Slime as a glorified dimmer switch. Maybe also chaos at / spreading out from the ruins, with the more visibly corrupted parts dealing damage or inflicting debuffs if touched.

Crossposting with https://getyeflask.net/quest/res/827.html for the time being. I'll probably be more attentive to posts there

Kicker, a herreras and a claw captain of the 557th squadron of the great Mountain's grand army, deadpanned. Lowtail, herreras and claw on-field medic, grinned at Kicker.
“A group photo.” She said, crossing her arms. “You know we'll have to burn it, right?”
“It'll stay here.” Lowtail poked his head. “This is the furthest we've ever been from the mountains, and it's not like we're doing anything else.”
As he said that Snapper, a feather, landed near them and picked up a bag. They were about to cross a very rickety bridge over a very deep creek, and nobody trusted the bridge to bear the weight of their equipment so Snapper was flying it across beforehand.
They'd been marching counterrootways for ten days and then ten more now, tailed by a tooth unit, under strict orders to avoid being sighted (Or, failing that, deal with anyone who saw them) and to signal the tooth of anyone who might see him. Kicker hugged herself a little tighter. “Fine. But we burn it.”
“And you have to be in it.” Added Lowtail.
Kicker grunted under her breath.
“What… Scraptooth.” She said, sliding a claw to the shotgun on her waist.
Scraptooth laid, bored, on the ground, oblivious to the… thing silently coming out of the sand behind him. “Captain.” He saluted. “What's with the look?”

“Alright, there's time.” Kicker took back her claw.

The next while was spent stashing as much food and water as she could in the turtle shell, as well as ammunition for the pistol- the magazines were neon green, made of something semihard that felt organic.


On the way out, she checked on the rifle. It was where she'd left it, it's breath labored after being spending so long under the rimlights.

Kicker crouched and gave it a small morsel. It didn't move to eat, but the pistol bug ran up to it and tore the meat into small bits it fed to the rifle slowly.

“She must've been something for you to do this.” Kicker said softly. “I have to go. I can't stay here to take care of you.”

The rifle seemed to nod, slowly. Or maybe it was just chewing what the pistol fed it. She couldn't tell.

"I know what it's like. You just need to give yourself time to get better."

it kicked sand at her again, much more weakly than before.

The pistol bug nuzzled the rifle before they departed, and that was that.

Two lone mercenaries, lost in an unknown galaxy far from home, slowly drifts towards a smaller mining colony on the edge of the sector, a long way from anything of note. They were part of colony fleet that would do the impossible, FTL jumping to completely different galaxy, but something went very wrong… and now they are stranded all on their own. Their ship is barely holding together, as the wounds they received fleeing from the last planet as outlaws takes their toll, forcing them to land on the planet before them, for better or for worse…

What you need to do is find a way to spin this bet as a way to send a message to Outlaw Queen in secret. It'll go to voicemail, but at least it'll help her find you once she wins her competition. Big Sis is a lot of things, but a loser is not one of them.

You could access a computer by suggesting a prank video call to the leader of the Riverlords. Since she's radiating "step on me" enery, both of you could do an S&M routine on display. It'll humiliate you, by having to do whatever she says on record, and her, by watching her rival get some action she can't have. Don't worry about blowing up your lie: the Captain will having such a wild time she'd think the Riverlord is denying out of sexual frustration. If you can't message her directly, the Riverlords will by leveraging for her help.

Hey, you can’t go running to your little sister every time you get in trouble! She’ll never let you live it down if you do! No, you’ll solve this on your own… you just need an opening, that’s all...
>Little Sis is a lot of things, but a loser is not one of them.
While she has determination and bravado, you’re not sure she’s the best combatant out there. After all, she’s more used to bully weaker adversaries than going tail-to-tail with someone on her own level. So sure, she might win… but you wouldn’t bet on it.

You look around, eyeing your options. The door is guarded by two pirate thugs... while the only window out of here leads directly into the area of this ‘Unbelievable Tournament’ crap. It doesn’t help that they took your lazgun when you entered, so the only weapon you have is your cybernetic arms. Hmm, maybe if you somehow- ”You aren’t considering trying to swim away are you, you scurvy crab?” the Captain interrupts your thought but poking the tip of her cutlass into your throat, ”Because if you are… well, let just say that I know where your sister is… and your ship. So don’t even think about it, landlubber.”

>Drinking contest?
”You honestly think you can drink more rum than a pirate captain? I wouldn’t suggest it, as our drinks generally melt the insides of most other species. Of course, you’re free to try, KEKEKE!”

Door seems to be sealed airtight. There's an indentation in the wall next to it, containing a glossy black surface about 20cm square with two round pegs protruding. Lower-left peg is a little under 2cm diameter, upper-right about half a cm, distance between maybe 6cm, angle about 30 degrees from parallel with the lower edge of the panel.
Minor esotery cleans mud off of Melaina's face and hands, leaving a brief halo of heat. Steam condensing on the black panel, from Melaina's hand hovering nearby (larger peg between thumb and forefinger, smaller between pinky and ring), causes it to flash and beep a few times.

Room beyond is almost as large, semicircular, with the just-opened door being in the center of the flat side. DANI recognizes it as the Inspector's Lounge. It's brightly lit and there are two other exits.
Of more immediate relevance, inside are eight creatures, each resembling a slightly different asymmetric mix of goat and human. Biggest one dives for a pile of junk where the vending machines used to be, digs through it, finds and brandishes something roughly the size and shape of a soup can, staring at you wild-eyed while making a big show of hooking a finger through the pull-pin in that mechanism on top. Two in the back continue having sex. Five others set down a card game and ready spears.

Well, at least we learned nothing bad happens if you disturb the boxes!

After a beat of awkwardness with the noise of sex in the background, a wide eyed and blushing Melaina calls out "We come in peace!" and if that doesn't do anything about the weapons pointed her way, she's going to move away from the door, letting someone better armed and armored take point against the angry-to-be-interrupted abhumans.

Attempt at diplomacy to avert conflict, benefiting from training in positive social interaction. (And probably an understanding numenera roll to see if she recognizes the fire extinguisher for what it is, most likely training in understanding numenera cancelled out by her inability with confidence games).

'as you are of fighting age your family's oath to the crown requires you to serve in the role of guardian.' Garrin explains.

Eat the cat food, but leave one tin for befriending the house cat.
Seriously, it would be great to have some animal companionship even if only for a little bit before we have to head for the safe zone.

Then we can fall asleep imagining what kind of piercings we'd like. Maybe some nice pearl earrings?

I think it's more of a hypothetical, obviously we can't do it during the apocalypse but more on whether it wasn't the apocalypse.

>Knock them off the touchscreen
It’s not really that windy up here, but it could still work!
“I have an idea. Let’s clothesline them off the cart.”
“We pull a rope across the top, sweep down and run them all over the edge. They won't see it coming.”
“...Sounds crazy enough to work. Alright, go and get ready to pull.”
Anet and I sneak around while Jaina creeps up to the corner of the screen. As we get to the other end, we notice a fifth Beformican looking over the side of the cart. They could be a problem if they notice us too soon...
Anet stands on my shoulders to lift the rope up and signal Jaina. She pulls it taut, and we’re off! The trick takes them completely by surprise, but as they’re falling one of the Beformicans manages to drag their arms down the touchscreen, pressing a bunch of buttons. The cart abruptly stops and reverses course, sending everyone flying!

One of the hose heads spins around from momentum, spraying the cart top with water. I land in a puddle next to Pent and one of Them. It's impossible to tell where anyone else landed between the ringing in my ears and the water in my eyes. Groggily, I try to scramble away from the confused, angry ant. Not only is the puddle slippery, but stepping free of the puddle is like pulling my feet out of mud. Pent’s quicker to recover and manages to shock the soaked Beformican before he gets up.
I finally have a chance to look around. It looks like three out of the five Beformicans were thrown clear, but Jaina is fighting off the last two on her own while holding onto the rope. I don’t see Anet anywhere - she must be on the other end of the rope still!

Look if there's a way to secure the rope nearby instead of simply pulling it. If there's one, you can take over pulling entirely, leaving her free to fight them off.

>Amp Rings
Sweet! Absolutely an item we should bring for the next match. This Syke approves.

>Press Diagram or not - Not
Since she still hasn't volunteered and we've made clear you were curious, let's leave Diagram's past alone until she's willing to share of her own initiative or the need becomes pressing to know more about her dad. You can tell her you're interested and you'll try to make time for her if she ever wants to talk about it, but it's up to her how 'tough' she wanna try to be around you. You're not here to make her final days in this place unpleasant. She's been a supportive friend and that matters, yeah?

If you wish, you can give her a reassuring pat on the shoulder or a light hug. That might not do much for you, but it probably will for her.

>Choose Nanoweaver or Amica - Nanoweaver, with caveat
What makes Diagram think Amica isn's a bad person? Good people can still justify doing bad things - though same goes for Nana, really - but it would be interesting to figure out a bit more about what motivates Amica here since we still know relatively little about her. People can put up a false front to get others to do what they want - Patz sure did, to lesser or greater extent - though, maybe, not as easily with someone like Diagram. Hm...

I'd be inclined to take these splinters to Nanoweaver just to force the dang veil of secrecy open from her end - or at least expose it for what it is: secrets kept deliberately from you, answers witheld for whatever reason, with no intent to explain until whatever all of this is... is over, or progressed further than it currently has.

That said, if Diagram can put into better words what she thinks makes Amica a not-bad person, perhaps it's worth considering givi

>That would explain the bullet, wouldn't it? it's meant for if you go berserk.
Not entirely. I can see the idea behind that, but if they wanted to get rid of me, there's a lot more effective ways to do it than a magic bullet, right? From what I remember of the note, Judi got it from someone else who told her to use it just in case, but... if it were me they were dealing with, then normal bullets would probably work if you used enough. We can regenerate but I don't think even I could survive having my head turned into sauce.

>If your berserk trigger goes off, then we can record it and have it cured!
...That's assuming I have one of those in the first place. Also, I have a feeling that 'killing someone else in a berserk rage' isn't something you can just easily come back from.

>Let's leave Diagram's past alone.
Yeah. I would've been fine asking her a little more, but...
Holding back now's probably a better choice.

"So you do have one. What's its name?"

She mutters something under her breath before speaking up again.
"W-well, it's... it's something embarrassing, so you'll have to forgive me for not telling you its name."

It's probably for the best she has her suppressor on. I don't need to feel second-hand first-hand embarrassment.

Stepping out from Diagram's room, I can feel the chilly air sweeping by. It's a good thing that Judicium's gotten me this new coat - I feel much warmer than I was before.

...There's just so much on my mind, though. What with Diagram, her dad, her Parasignia, the upcoming fight, whether or not I've formed a Psuedosignia with anyone... it's all up in the air. It's hard keeping track of everything when I still have to fight one of this facility's strongest soldiers tomorrow.

I reach into my pocket, pulling out the thing that's the root of my worries.

The vial of Splinters...
This thing had been hidden away for a reason. Hidden under a table in an old office.
Why was it removed at all? Did it belong to you in the first place?

I turn the vial over in my fingers, the thing catching the dim light.
This thing... this thing's gonna be the deciding factor for what's going to happen next, isn't it?

...But it won't determine how my upcoming fight will go. Only I can, with your help.
There's nothing more I can do right now. I've got a fight ahead of me and I need to ready up for that.

Okay first thing is to wash those pants. Can't go out without clean clothes. Ask if you have any other clothes? They'll all need to be washed.

Remember, the Void King didn't kill the Goddess, that was the Trickster. And the world broke because the Goddess was killed. The Void King only showed up after that and (mostly) killed the Titans and Grand Slimes. And apparently he considers trying to kill the Queen a mistake caused by some sort of misunderstanding, so it's entirely possible his demigod slaying was justified and reasonable given his understanding of the situation at the time.

So you died, then were brought back to life via experimental science? And due to having been dead for a while, your memories were damaged? Or maybe... ask if they operated on your brain.

Do you remember Judy ever calling you by name?
No. 1050218 ID: 22eda9

I'm... hmm. It feels nice to see my hunches being right, but the other spirit's right, we should backpedal a bit.
Dad had seemingly no reaction whatsoever, which is... odd.

>Maybe we're genuinely confused?
With a situation as complex as Franklin's, it would be weirder if we weren't wrong or confused about something, what's important is trying to work through it.

So... in my opinion, I'm not sure I think Franklin's Dad was lying in this situation, because I'd rather not believe that he's so heartless as to forget his own daughter's name.
At the same time, I don't want to disregard Franklin's memories.

Normally, this would present a pretty serious contradiction, and I believe that contradiction is the key, rather than a "It's one or the other" situation.

Seeing as I've had a few good hunches, I'd like to the idea out there that maybe "Franklin is actually from another world" - or so to speak that "Franklin has memories from two different worlds."
This is obviously a really out there idea, but it doesn't feel that unconvincing. I'm not sure how that would really work though...
Not sure Lillian or Lemmy would buy it though.

(I think it's more likely that Franklin has brain parts from a different kid. Just like he's clearly got other foreign parts on his body. I don't want to give Franklin an obvious way to walk back his newfound realization that his Dad is a liar, though. He's definitely lying about Franklin's mother. Mostly because the room his mother is supposed to be inside... is a closet.)
No. 1050319 ID: 22eda9

(Right, I was trying to clarify, but maybe it wasn't clear enough.)

Even if he's not lying about Judy, who definitely exists/existed somewhere - just maybe not this world ((sequel foreshadowing?)) he's for sure still lying about something.
It's hard to find someone in this Cattenom who isn't lying or hiding some kind of secret, so surely your Dad is no exception, Franklin.
...Yes, even you, even Enid. Everyone has their reasons.

Also, idle thought, but maybe the memory Dad is a different Dad...
No. 1050747 ID: 22eda9

This is kind of random, but does the word Perpetuity hold any meaning to you, Franklin?
It's the title of a story still being told.

It might be a bit of an archaic word, but in essence the dictionary meaning of the word is along the lines of "The state of remaining the same."
I'm curious what the others in Cattenom think of it, and it might be a key to understanding the mysteries of the town.

I disagree with the prior suggestors in saying that he wouldn't. He's already on a road to at least *attempting* to socialize and he misses his brother, maybe he wouldn't under normal circumstances, but I think this kind of thing would be calming to him in the moment. Also, having someone higher up means they can also spot for you in case there's anything weird coming up that you all (Being short kids) could miss.

I wanted to say A3, but Instead I'll go with A2, piggyback and the middle, the extra height from Enid means you'll be hard to see anyway, which means having someone up high in a hard to see place can catch something you all otherwise might miss.

Wait, you said illiterate? T-that's no-no joke! The girl must travel-sight a marvel of Inter-Chaotic ship technology, and she doesn't even know how to tell the stop / self-destruct buttons apart, let alone a space-flight manual?! Who do I need to report for kill-kill- I mean execution?"

Further-Lord realizes the whole room is now staring at him.

"Yes-yes, all of you praise the All-Saviour-All-Destroyer, He who shall obliterate all Chaos in all things for all the Imperium (once we man-things get our God-Emperor-be-Damned act together). Apologies for the verbal tics, can't stop them, install-grafted sacred biotechnology to save-preserve it from decay out of broken tube. Manual said it was tested on rats. Manual never said it harvested brains of rats and grafted them to user.
...A demonstration is in order. Yes-yes."

Further-Lord finds the nearest piece of technology or aching crewmember and 'repairs' them.

Everyone in the meeting room whips out a pistol and aims at the babbling rat-monster, who promptly vanishes into thin air.

>Pozzo Ekasdottir equips archaeotech laspistol (unloaded)

Acting Captain Flinders taps a button on the table, engaging an in-ship vox link.
"Gellar field status?"
"All green, sir. Nothing to report." The assembled senior officers relax, slightly.
"Acknowledged. Over and out." Taps again, disconnecting. "Goddamn hallucinations."

Any exorcist worth her salt could tell you that "neither within the law nor outside it" and "entire star system" do not belong in the same sentence.

Quaddis is essentially a planet-sized vacation getaway for the upper crust of the Calixis Sector's nobility, kept in perpetual extraterritorial limbo by a legal loophole. As heir to the Haarlock line, May is the closest thing it has to a planetary governor. There were no fixed orbital facilities or other industrial infrastructure to speak of, even before some more recent catastrophe. Interplanetary-range vox chatter is mostly a mix of eerie silence and variations on the Voidfarer's Prayer for Aid.

Initial skim by the astropathic choir estimates only a few hundred thousand people left alive across the entire system. When the Sigilite's Word last passed through here, just a few months ago, that was roughly four million, expected to swell to over five million as offworld visitors arrived to view the Grand Conjunction and attend the concomitant Festival of Tattered Fate. That event was last week - around the same time as the incident at Ice Station Mara, and far too recently for conventional transport to have departed via any safe jump point unless they broke orbit before the festival started.

Your party has effectively been reunited. Novator Benhamin "Old Ben" Nostromo, alpha-level psyker Lottie "The Burning Princess," Anguish, and Magos Biologis Sarcos "Bubbles" Vathek, aren't in the same room with Acting Captain Flinders, the rest of the navy officers, Ekasdottir, Further-Lord, and May (who hasn't been formally recognized as being in charge of much of anything yet), but from their respective duty stations they can all speak to each other easily through the in-ship vox, and everyone else seems to be assuming Maioigo Haarlock knows more than them about what the hell is going on.

Let's start by asserting control, rounding up surviors- locals can likely tell us the rough shape of the thing, then we can get detailed examinations later. Standard quarantines protocols, let's make sure we're not losing anyone from our crew to whatever happened here.

First distinction in ship types is warp capability. Non-warp-capable ships include orbital habitats, semi-static planetary defenses, and everything from tiny passenger shuttles (such as the ever-popular aquila lander) to multi-million-ton in-system vessels which could in principle be fitted with a warp drive but simply haven't been.

Among warp-capable ships, the major distinction is size.
Smaller category is escorts, subdivided into transports, raiders, and frigates.
Largest common category is capital ships: heavy transports, light cruisers, cruisers, battlecruisers (also sometimes known as heavy cruisers), and grand cruisers.
Finally, battleships. They're equivalent to at least two cruisers each, ranging on up into huge, absurd superweapons. Rarely seen outside major fleet engagements.

Raiders are fast but fragile. Frigates are more well-rounded. Usually takes five or six of either to be a fair fight against a cruiser, and you could expect to lose at least one in the process, but they're not really meant for fleet battles - any given ship of the line can only be in one place at a time (not counting arrive-before-you-left warp shenanigans), so if you've got five escorts and your enemy has one cruiser, ideal strategy is to spread out. One encounters the enemy capital ship and retreats, while the other four get to play "I brought a space warship to this meeting and you didn't."

Not quite up to that level yet, though. So, what do you want for your family's new flagship? Your father, and several generations of Haarlocks before him, operated out of a frigate known as the Spear of Destiny. It's not here, but there are about a dozen escort-sized vessels to choose from, could probably find something similar.

Could even combine the best of two or more of them, thanks to the Viat Lux, a Goliath-class heavy transport outfitted as a mobile shipyard

This is a test game. A test for a very simplified system that I want to see if it works or not. It may be subject to change mid-game if it’s not working as intended. Expect violence.

The world’s in a period of great upheaval. Centuries old rule is being challenged. Old magic and primal forces rage across the land. Old and terrible gods set their eyes upon creation. It is a time of great story and great heroes.

But this isn’t one of them.

Why do you even need to ask? Hopefully they have a health potion or something...

Hold on now, the rest of your payment better not be this useless paper stuff. You’d rather have useful supplies as an advance. Time to put those merchant skills to work.

Scrip as payment..... money you can only use with one person who decides the price......its just money back into the merchants pocket scummy or very cheap of them if it does not act as exactly the same amount of coin but even then.... scrip that can just be churned out by one unbacked source

You approach the caravan store, facing a Queydan merchant. At least this way you know there will be no price gouging. Greedy as they are, they take a vow of propriety
