Everyone out in the galaxy is in it for themselves, to make it anywhere you gotta make it big, and in this case, bounty work seems like it'd be worth the time.

With everything else from diplomacy, to warfare, to politics, having your own brand of freedom out in the Galaxy is a hell of a thing.

Keep doing a search, anything else on this console Apex can get working? The cat may complicate things, you can live the romantic bounty hunter life of flirting with enemies and rivals later Sivon. Remember, your ship needs hyperjump capabilities to expand the bounties you can take. You also need some more augments before we can take on higher risk bounties and become more badass.

Found Jackson first, then observe the cat lady and found out if she is an ally of Jackson or another bounty hunter..
No. 968503 ID: ce39da

Click through all the security cameras, and if you still can't find Jackson... remember that authorities only confirmed that Jackson's ship was heading here. Either "Jackson Fist" is an invented alias (and I mean, good lord, that name), or this cat jacked his ship, and he's actually stuck where it last departed.

Also, assuming you can't find Jackson: "Hey Apex, let's see if we can lock her in the factory bay, then lock her out of the fabber controls. There should also be a PA system, right?" (Might want to subtly lock her in even if you do find Jackson because we don't want her walking in on us while we gank him.)

That or Jackson has somehow switched to a new body. It could be possible. If they got too much heat before and needed to start over. Problem though is that they still have the old ship, unless that is why they are here...

Regardless, lets try to lock them in so we can interrogate them, either now or after we check elsewhere.

I can’t take the silence anymore. The walls no longer creak, the clock no longer ticks.
I find myself forgetting reality.
Simple things, meaningful things.
The Abyss beckons to me. But I can’t…

I need to distract myself, even for a moment.
But I can’t think of what to write.

Appendix: The Vessel will take longer to recover from illnesses. The Vessel will become more vulnerable to Corruption. The Vessel will become ‘Inflamed.’

Spine: The Vessel is more likely to freeze when startled. The Vessel will only be able to remove penalties with the Maneuver action, rather than gain benefits. The Vessel will become ‘Clumsy.’

Muscles: The Vessel will need Meat. The Vessel will hurt itself if exerted too much. The Vessel will become ‘Jittery.’

I wish I could, but I'm too pale to move anything, its much to lit in this room... besides it would probably scare her... I would probably scare her...

I couldn't possibly get that close and... touch... no no no... I'm not brave enough... besides I'm too pale... but... maybe... I'll try... but I cant been seen... I'm too shy

I'm much, much to shy... when ever she looks towards me I hide. I hide so fast, it's as if I'm not even there... besides, she would probably be afraid of me if ever she did see me...

"One sec," you reply. "Let's look around some more." While you're here, you might as well check for any tracks near the water.

A brief search of the surrounding area turns up nothing of note. You glance at your watch nervously.

>"We can keep looking around if you want to go see that body, sir," one of the cops offers.

"Call in some more guys to help while you're at it," you order. "Get public works on the line to get this bridge closed off. Everything gets analyzed, I want every loose brick bagged as evidence, and some closer shots of those marks, too."

>"Yes sir!" the second cop barks. "We'll get some great shots with this camera!"

The gears are turning, now. Once a few more men get on the scene, your bases should be covered nicely. There's just one more thing...

"Also, I was wondering... Where did you get this raft, anyway? And that camera?"

>You watch in terror as that vein on Dane's face slowly begins to swell. "I brought them," she grits. "You were there. I put them into the car in front of you."

"O-oh! Of course, of course," you laugh nervously. "I just forgot."

>Ohhh, no. Another vein starts popping out. "We're gonna talk, later."

Your subordinates shoot you apologetic looks from behind Dane's back. You're somehow more on edge than you were when you butted heads with STEVE.

“Grappling! Excellent choice!” The knight unbuckles his breastplate and sets it aside with his belt and sword. “What’d you say: first to three pins?”

Casey starts limbering up, doing a little jog in place to get warmed up. “Works for me. Are you sure you’re going to be alright in your condition? I don’t want to pop a stitch or anything.”

Opinel shimmies out of his shirt, revealing a motley patchwork of scars and stitches. “Oh, I’ll be fine. Nothing that I haven’t dealt with a thousand times before.” The footman grins, his face bursting with enthusiasm.

Cauldera looks around with momentary disbelief before carefully twining her fingers between Vivians. There’s a momentary shock of energy as the fire ward around the fey’s neck activates and absorbs the overwhelming heat.

The phoenix is pulled up on stage by her partner and feels herself spun around. Unsure of what to do, she tries to match Vivian’s pace, trying not to step on any toes. “R-Raithe! What do I do?” She stammers.

“Uhhh, guys...?” Kol eyes the little pinpoints of flame dancing away from the flustered elemental. “We might have a problem...”

Feathers rapidly shake loose and start to spiral around the stage, threatening an uncontrolled conflagration.

“I got it!” Raithe launches into the air, flapping left and right as tries to catch as many feathers as possible. “Uh, this is actually kind of a lot!”

Get Vivian's attention, ask her to do something with all the exploding feathers. She can manipulate fire, she should be able to incorporate it into the dance.

Welp we can't interrupt a Fey during a performance. Maybe Kol can use some of his body puppetry to move quickly enough to catch feathers in the pot. Miki can just focus on grabbing feathers since she's warded.

It's finally happened. You've taken the plunge. You're going to make something of yourself.

Now that your father and mother have passed away, you've exchanged all of your property to the Governor of Aldenhead for a note of value.

With this, you can purchase supplies and materials, hire some guards, and set out to become a traveling merchant, one of the only possible ways to move up in the world.

First, you'll have to decide what kind of goods you want to purchase for your first trip.

Gems are small and easy to transport, but they're also a very attractive target for thieves. They're essentially impossible to spoil, but it's a little hard to find good buyers for them. The return on investment is high.

Bread and grain is large and bulky, but brigands generally have no interest in them. They're somewhat easy to spoil. It's easy to find buyers, but the return on investment is low.

Fabrics are moderately bulky. They're somewhat attractive to thieves, and extremely easy to spoil. They're moderately easy to find buyers for. The return on investment is moderate.

What kind of goods will you transport? You've decided to pick only one thing, because it'll determine what else you need for your trip.

>it could keep you safe if you run into orc raiders in your travels
How would that keep us safe? Do we just shout that we know the Secret Water orcs and the raiders would just give us a pass?

>If you're traveling out west, maybe you'll run into her
Would've been useful to know the exact location of their village in case we'd want to travel there to trade and whatnot. Assuming they have one and they're not purely nomadic.

>it would still be roughly a year before the invasion was to occur
So we've got one year to get rich and raise an army...
No. 968598 ID: 12b116

Probably better for the /dis/ thread, but I'll answer these here.

>>How could this help?
Parleying and explaining you're an ally of the Secret Water tribe would probably make anybody who are allies with them not want to murder you and take all of your stuff.

Depending on who they are, they could also hold you and confirm or something like that. It's not like magic words that make raiders evaporate so much as something you could use to bargain with hostile orcs.

I don't think the other two things really require any kind of direct response, though.

As far as the last one, also assuming that's true.

You're running through the grand salon, an oval room 60' east-west by 45' north-south. Eight thin white pillars encircle a colorful 15' square mosaic in the floor, a lens of pale yellow glass in the ceiling 50' above, and a chandelier suspended halfway between, consisting of glowing orbs hanging from the hilts of twelve upturned golden swords. Elaborate gilded-bronze vines decorate the walls, framing small balconies on two upper floors.

Your shortness of breath, overheating, and shaky muscles imply recent prolonged heavy exertion, but you have no recollection of the specifics. Given how thoroughly ice-encrusted your clothes are, at least part of that hard labor must have taken place in a blizzard, and since your most recent memories of being outdoors were late spring or early summer in a temperate climate, far from any snowcapped mountains, the gap in your memory likely encompasses at least half a year.

There's a howling creature in your way, with shaggy white fur, possibly something an ape-demon sired on a polar bear, brandishing a severed human arm with not only clear killing intent but alarmingly supernatural expertise. Maybe you should do something about that first, sort out more nuanced strategic details afterward.

I'll leave it to Tasnim's player to describe exact current feelings, but that's more than enough successes to pick up on her intimacies of professional responsibility toward medical patients in general, and anxious protectiveness toward Noir personally.

Also, technically, even after clumsily falling off the door and down a few stairs, noticing Noir's presence would require four successes on Perception + Awareness unless the cloaking device either broke down or was deliberately deactivated. Six, with anima power active.

For similar reasons, Larceny-based action goes smoothly too, though those dried berries are almost painfully sour - not rotten, just intense enough it's probably meant as small portions to spice up a diet of bland starchy staple grains, rather than for stuffing your face all at once.

These are almost certainly that same group of four you noticed earlier. >>959808 They seem to be domestic servants, with a clear internal chain of command: despite a youthful appearance the curly-haired woman has overall chronological seniority, but orders from the man with bushy eyebrows will take precedence in matters of food preparation (and, by extension, general kitchen management) due to his training as a chef. None of them seem even slightly prepared to initiate real violence, or respond to it as anything other than awed spectators or terrified victims.

Following like a scolded puppy, Noir almost shrinks, his imposing silhouette momentarily appearing smaller in tow behind what might aptly be described as a force of nature. As she finishes dressing the wound and plying him with wine, he begins to attempt charades, drawing what amounts to a house and a question mark, trying to gather information on where he is and what's been going on. Eventually he mimes for Ada's bags, trying to go through them for clues as to what's been going on, or at least conversational aides. He finds the partially drawn maps, and begins studying what he can of the layout, looking for potential

Not sure what kind of roll that is, maybe doesn't even count as mechanically resolvable/consequential, but gathering intel based on your surroundings, looking for secrets based on architecture, and rummaging through people's belongings to find out information on them all seem like reasonable things to attempt with potential interpersonal fallout.
No. 968615 ID: f57349

First dose of celestial wine heals 3 levels of damage, eradicates an infection which Tasnim's diagnostic skills can easily confirm had already taken root in the wound (Stamina 1 + Resistance 0 + Deprivation Penalty -1 + Wound Penalty -2 = Bad News), also incidentally curing any and all other diseases in or upon Noir's body, mind, and spirit, no matter how subtle or persistent. A single dose won't guarantee lasting immunity, but on the other hand, it's also not enough for intoxication penalties. Assuming Noir manages to avoid combat, heavy exertion, or further injury, that level of lethal damage remaining in his -0 health box will sort itself out in at most twelve hours - or six hours with proper rest.

The wine also tastes great, and is potentially addictive, just like mundane alcohol but more so. Bottle has two more doses. Replacing a dose using Scorpion And Toad Mastery will cost 10m.

Tell Dreaming Pontiff that you're looking for a Serpent named Azara Uzel and you have a feeling that the Uredo that attacked them is also looking for her. Ask if they know where Azara could be? You think she might be in danger!

Also, tell them to call Saki and let him know they are alright. Saki is the one that told you they were in danger.

Don't forget to ask Leon if he found any clues on where Azara could be!

well I came down here looking for someone to more or less offer them a job and heard they liked to hang out around her sometimes. However when I got her the sanctuary was abandoned exempt for Saki who said the place as attacked by a plant monster. He said you lead it away by agree to help and and when I want to make sure you were alright a massive Uredo with red eyes attacked me, knocked me the ground and disarmed me, scared Saki away, and ran off. When I regained enough of my senses I saw I was alone and decided I should head down here to make sure you were ok.

Theory: Our buddy here was being interrogated about something that they wanted to not just "forget", but REALLY forget.
Ask him if he even remembers who Azara is. If memories belonging to her have also been tampered with...

And bring him back to the Sanctuary to help the poor kid. He must've shorted a circuit by now.

Tell Dreaming Pontiff that you only heard this second hand from Saki, but according to him a "huge plant monster," which was actually a giant uredo, barged into the Sanctuary, fired a warning shot with a laz pistol and demanded everyone do as it wanted or it'd hurt the SAIs there. It was looking for something, but Saki didn't hear what. Dreaming Pontiff then led the giant uredo outside, whereupon every other SAI ran off but Saki, who hid behind the altar.

Tell Dreaming Pontiff that you came to the SAI Sanctuary looking for Azara Uzel; You were hired by the New Horizon Brood Pits to find her. It's not for anything related to her work for Sol Corp or whatever pro-SAI actions she's done. They just want her to come in to be bred before she leaves the station. Ask Dreaming Pontiff if they have any idea where Azara would be now, or know of anyone else who'd have some idea.
Ask Dreaming Pontiff to please call Saki and tell him that you and they are okay and that the big plant monster, which was actually a overgrown uredo, ran off, so it's safe for him to come back here now.

Ask Dreaming Pontiff to share the last memory they have before the wiped gap, as well as the timestamps for the start and end of the memory gap. By retracing Dreaming Pontiff's tracks during that period you may be able to find out Azara's hiding spot or, if it's not Azara the uredo was after, where whatever or whoever the uredo was after is or was.

Ask Dreaming Pontiff to contact the other SAIs that are members of the Sanctuary and see if they can provide eye witness descriptions, images and audio of the giant uredo that showed up. ...Actually, you could just ask Saki to transfer video of the event from his memory to your data pad, but getting multiple angles is a good idea.

Tell Dreaming Pontiff that you messaged PK Officer Leon Strongheart about the uredo assaulter, so there's gonna be

>Now you admit you might have been prudent not to ask Saki about the plants, but you needed to be sure.
Just be glad you didn’t ask him about what Azara wanted him to write near the Uredo. Otherwise that would’ve tipped it off to go after him!

>It gives of a satisfied hum as you insert the battery into it again and boot it up. Nothing indicates that it came to any harm, with the exception of some dirt on the grip.
More like soil from the Uredo. Could that be used to narrow down where the Uredo lives? Kinda like a finger print for plants? I’m sure the PK would be able to get access to some kinda database that keeps track of how healthy various patches of soil on the station is to make sure all the plants are healthy.

That would mean the PK would need our sleeper gun as evidence.

>What do?
Let’s lead Dreaming Pontiff back to the Sanctuary. And mention that other than the memory loss, you’re glad that they’re unharmed.

Death is a choice.
Sacred it is, to fulfill the pact.
A sin it will be, to fail to act.

A fire is a good idea. I can't just sit around and wait like this.


>Get up and look for a beast to slay.

This... marsh? is strange, and for the dead trees I'd say it was truely lifeless... Every now and then I look up from the fire to see shapes in the fog, but as I chase them they run away or just seem to disappear. I still haven't eaten, and I swear, the hungrier I get the more I notice shapes in the corners and behind trees...


I might just eat that meal, I really am starving...

Try to see where this 'voice' is coming from.

You think this is the place, it’s a good thing you won the raffle and the spaceplane tickets are already paid for or this would’ve been a huge waste of money! DAMA’S Spa & Bathhouse, huh? Maybe she lives in an apartment upstairs.

Yamelle Cecil-Naast... interesting name.

I hope to make this a quick one-shot, enjoy! Maybe it’ll be definitely NSFW? I dunno what’s gonna happen! Handholding? Also, non-canon! Pretty much non-canon.

So, some kind of wild animal visited your shelter and marked it as their territory. That confirms it wasn't undead, at least. Unfortunately it might take issue to you returning to the same location.

Head into the dorms first for supplies, as that could make retrieving the lexicon easier.

Scout the surrounding area for like an hour, to make sure when you exit you're not going to run into a surprise, especially if you're making a loud exit. Not just if there's anything around but if there's any signs of things that could come back later.

It is strange that he'd just let her walk in, but perhaps that's less strange and more a service they provide. A walk-in service, as it were! Might even have to pay for it, heh. Doubt this is a kidnapping ring or whatnot. If so she'd just been told to 'oh yes, go in, 'Rocker' will meet you in room X' without being given the option to wait and been none the wiser.

Anyway, thank the receptionist. Mention that you weren't told much of this place, so you presumed something just now, and well, you learned recently that perhaps you should presume less and ask more. What service do they provide and what's the going rate?

(brace for sales pitch)

This. Stay in the lobby. No need to rock the boat or accidentally stumble into, uhhh, what we suspect could be going on here. Besides, you could chat up one of the other waiting neumonos and try another recruitment spiel for this afternoon's town hall.

RANCH QUEST- You are a robot, and you must have ranch dressing.

A bizarre comedy quest about the search for meaning, gunfights, free will, broken robots we left behind, and why Dorothy Lynch deserves to be burned alive.

It is absolutely ridiculous, and should not be viewed unless you, too, are on a quest for knowing ranch dressing fully and totally, and also are okay with some of the worst pixel art this side of the MacIntosh era.

R4N ran across the desert, and a desire for ranch dressing followed.

You are R4N, a gunslinger. An older bot. You used to make a thing called “ranch dressing”, back when you had a Purpose. But now you wander, looking for something, which is obviously NOT ranch dressing, as going on a quest for ranch dressing, which also hypothetically is the only thing you could acquire to make yourself happy, would be entirely ridiculous- just you and an old gun, and your metal, sexy body. Today, you wander the Rust Desert. The dunes stretch out before you like a particularly chunky mixture of ranch dressing.

You walk further, and see a crudely made sign. “RuSTin” is scratched into it, and an arrow pointing the direction you were coincidentally walking. Must be a town. “Might be interesting.” You say to yourself, working your vocal processing unit, trying to lie yourself into thinking that you will check out the town out of mere curiosity, and not a programmed, internal and eternal, undeniable, desire to find “ranch dressing.”

You just arrived in Malfeas, the Emerald Sun and the screams of Tomescu greeting a new day as you wake up, your characters having by some chance been in the area for the last 5 days as it made its journey across the endless desert.

This stretch of land, where it had once been at the foot-end of the Scavenger Lands, awash in the broken ruins of the first age, now finds its self in a golden cage, it's population kept in their oasis of sanity by gilded branches and haunting melodies that lure the careless into the jaws of uncaring predators.

Who are you unfortunate souls to wind up with this mess of a world? What wonders have you brought forth from the earth, or what nightmares have you inflicted upon it, intentionally or otherwise? What companions do you have, what enemies? Are you travelers, unfortunate enough to be caught in the destructive crosswinds of destiny, or do you lay your head in one of the seven villages large enough to even be called such, or the vast long since unclaimed wilderness of the area?

Attached is a map of the creation area, as picked on the discord server with 93 hexes.

Go ahead and attach a concept, and claim a spot for 1 of the 7 villages in A1:K8 notation, and define it as a village as well as you are able to.

So after some deliberation, I decided instead of waiting, I'll try to run this alongside the civgame. My train of thought is in the discussion below(not gonna make a new thread for this, it's gonna be one chapter only).

This is a very NSFW quest! Expect nudity, violence, gore, non-con, sexual intercourse of hetero and homoerotic natures, confusing story lore, cryptic bullshit, borked updates, and stupid names
