This is a story about the living weapons, tossed into an uncaring world, and left to seek their own answers. Will they survive?

How does it receive orders? Wireless? Voice?

Could we spoof orders to it? Try the default password? Maybe the access cards we acquired have some level of authority to give it orders?

Use the replicators to create substances that damage it, possibly subtly.
You know what it is, what the Argos is immune to. EMP effects? Fires overheating it? Airborne corrosive chemicals? Radiation damaging electronics? Electrified hazards? Flammable gas that would cause a rocket to backfire?

If nothing else, have replicators make as much explosive chemicals as possible (ammonium nitrate maybe?) and the replicators at your pod was noted to be explosive, other power sources may be explosive. Either put as much explosives near the Argos or lure it near them, maybe while still in the replicators if needed. If the Argos is taken out, then you can dig through any rubble in the way with much less danger. Possibly use gun to shoot and cause a spark or heat up something to detonate from a distance.

Do you think it knows there is two of you? The Geiger broke out, but the Tozol was released with no alarms. Toal could sneak around, but then you would have to engage it solo first.

I don't think your firepower is sufficient to do any damage to this huge tank, except maybe to the eye. Even then I doubt the obvious sensor wouldn't be bullet proof, possibly covering it with something from your lab coat to some opaque substance (or napalm) would be more likely to work.
No. 995565 ID: 3a7feb

If Toal's relatively healed up, she should be pretty good at throwing accurately.

Does A10 think hitting the camera with a big ol javelin would work? How about hitting it with some kinda improvised paint bomb?

((Simply throw a blanket over it and it'll assume it's night time and fall asleep!))

The only thing I can think of myself here, is taking it down wireless somehow. I'd say hijacking its wireless signal, if it has one. That only works if we've got the tools and resources to accomplish that, let alone the knowledge as well.
More practical thing to do would probably be setting up some kind of EMP bomb to hopefully take it offline for some time.

Well... that got more responses out of you than I expected. Maybe you all are some kind of combat AI...

>With our current gear, this is suicidal. Maybe we should look for a secret door in the other rooms, or look for some better weapons.
I don't think we have the luxury of time now. The moment the turrets deployed, the Argos became aggressive.

>Do you think it knows there is two of you? You broke out, but you let Toal out without destroying anything.
That... is actually a good point. The Argos will only have been alerted to one hostile. I don't know if it will leave Toal alone if it spots her, but Argos will only hunt me down as long as it only detects me.

>How does it receive orders? Maybe we could spoof some orders to it?
Without an interface to use, I don't think I can do much. I don't think any of the stuff we found has wireless radios, and I don't have the knowledge to reprogram it. The AI may respond to one of the IDs I have, but it could also identify the cards as stolen, which would be bad. If I'm going to try and trick it, I'll have to stack the deck in my favour.

>It would be nice if there was some way to sneak past it.
It would, but this is a secure lab. The only way out be though the door... but the ducts that the maintenance drones use could also lead somewhere, but they're so narrow that we wouldn't really be able to take anything with us. We would lose access to this sector, and the Argos would be trying to hunt one of us down. This plan would work, but it could hinder us in the future.

>Can you crush it with the door? You could get the drones to disable the security features.

It came out of the oceans, like steam rising from a boiling pot. Then it swept over the shores, over the mountains, and down into the valleys. What was at one time a freak phenomenon quickly turned into a disaster as people, landmarks, and eventually small towns disappeared into the fog. So much was lost, even time became less and less reliable. No one's sure how long ago it was, that's been lost to the fog, but the survivors do their best to get by in the new fog world.

Among the survivors are an odd breed of rare human that have come into existence; Distinguished by an odd sort of affinity for the fog. Simply known as the Taken, these beings mingle amongst regular humans, some not even knowing they are Taken. Some people of the fog world believe these taken to be the next evolution of human, a new creature made to survive in a new world; Other's believe them to be servants of the fog, demons hell bent on destroying what's left. The Taken themselves suffer from odd dreams, strange visions, and are haunted by voices. it's hard to say what's true, the truth's been obscured by fog, either way the Taken too must struggle to survive…

She pours herself another cup of tea.

>What is it? The tea i mean?
PEARL: It's black tea, my own special blend.

I look down at the steaming cup, the faintest reflection of my mask stares back. The warmth feels nice on my hands.
RITA: I only drink coffee
PEARL: I'm sure you'll like the tea, go on try it.
RITA:…How can you help me anyway?
PEARL: Your minds going, slowly but surely. You're unhinged I know it. Everyone see's you like shattered glass, all broken and dangerous. I see you as a puzzle.
PEAR: I can put you back together; Help you go down into the depths of your mind that you're too scared to go alone and pick up the pieces. Coiled in fear and regret is the true strength you've lost.
RITA: Even if any of this is true how does it help you?
PEARL: I like the challenge, I want to see how much I can draw out of you.
RITA: So I'm a Guinea pig for you? Is that it?
PEARL: More or less, but I assure you it'll only be beneficial for you.

Pearl takes a long sip from her cup. I hear cawing, Pearl looks up.

PEARL: Raven!...Wait maybe it's a crow…Your tea's getting cold Rita, aren't you going to drink it?

Well so much for hiding that you can see it. I don't think that the attempt at misinformation is going to work either considering Isabella is in contact with Max, who is almost certainly working with the Hero's Guild. If anything, what we did just backfired and let Isabella know we are tried to feed her misinformation, which could lead her to conclude that Cat is onto her, which will escalate things further.

Logically we should tell her that Isabella has fire powers and shit.
Also let her know that you don't have any plans tonight so she can have you after work. Or until the next customer, but that'll be awkward.

>successfully kept his cool
That was a success...? Let’s hope. Bad that the amulet got exposed though. Or at least she probably saw you doing something with something tied around your legs. Maybe swap its location later.

This thing’s a bit of a bully, too. Perhaps bored, getting its jollies where it can.

I think she was only laughing at our reaction to our notebook being burnt. I think we managed to trick her. That said, we should continue playing dumb. It might be too risky to reveal Isabella's flame spirit this soon which could cause her to do something drastic.

I dont think we have time tonight to get some action with Andrea, since we have Willamina's inheritence and looking into Iraphena's artifacts this evening, and maybe check with Cannie about a late night job, but maybe we can plan to meet her tomorrow since we have the entire Sunday off (with strip poker the only thing planned). We can ask if she wants to meet at the Ruffled Haunch or at the park like someone once suggested sometime tomorrow.

It's sounding more and more like you don't *REALLY* want to be a human. Being human is about having compromises. We're trying to give you advice that worked when we were alive, some of us human, some of us not.

But none of it matters if you dont actually want us to try and help.

>I’m not a shadow…
Of course. But if all you desire out of people is what they have, the path forward would be the path of those who people view as some of the lowest of the low. The shadows who hide by the dark, who thrive by raid, burglary, theft! But should you wish to avoid the life of a shadow, to live with them, you must see a simple truth.

>Good is what makes me feel good, and evil is what makes me feel bad.
This is the heart of the issue. People see this view as selfish. Usually, people see selfish as bad, while selfless is good.
The logic of this is that should they be purely selfish, society would fall apart, but to be selfless would help it thrive.
For example, if two farmers were purely selfish, each would starve if they had a poor crop while the other did well, because after the first starves, the farmer who lived would starve if they had a poor crop later. But, if they helped each other, they would both thrive.
To be sure, it is difficult to be selfless. Sometimes you are forced to be selfish. So they make it a crime to be too selfish. This is why the raiders, burglars, thieves, all those who take what that they desire, live the lives of shadows. Their crimes make them outcasts. So, to be more like people, to avoid the life of a shadow, you have to figure out how to be selfless.

PFft, you don't even know the most basic of human ethics. You know why you humans aren't afraid of you as a whole Dotti?

Because there's a lot of them and one of you. If you try to dominate humans, they all team up and they'll kill you, and no, there's no way for you to win other than to leave. You wanna be more human, better start figuring how their society works and try to start fitting in, cause otherwise you're going to get killed and Serah is going to get run out of town for bringing you here.

Yeesh, the great and powerful fox spirit, who has to rely on one person at a time domination to stay safe and can't manage enough magic to turn into a humanoid furry. Great and powerful indeed.

Oh, by the way, names have power, and Dotti is a name of a friendly, well meaning nuisance. Probably part of why you've sucked so hard at everything you've tried.

Foreboding clouds hang heavily overhead, and yet the air is still.

The ship has been becalmed for almost five days now, the black sky obscuring the stars and threatening a storm that has yet to come.

The crew is growing restless, which isn't good even on a disciplined military vessel, but this is not that. This is a pirate ship.

Who are you?

A. Cabin Boy. A lad that the captain took a fancy to, looking for adventure.

B. Cabin Boy (Female). You're pretending to be a lad to escape an oppressive home life. The captain took a fancy to you.

C. Captive (Male). Youngest son of a wealthy family, you were kidnapped by the crew. The captain intends to ransom you back to your father, a Naval officer.

D. Captive (Female). Oldest daughter of a wealthy family, you were kidnapped by the crew for ransom back to your father, a powerful merchant.

E. Stowaway (Male). You snuck aboard the ship to avoid the life of a homeless petty thief. You've probably kept your presence a secret.

F. Stowaway (Female). You snuck aboard the ship to avoid the life of a homeless beggar. You've probably kept your presence mostly secret.

G. Crewmate (Male). You signed on for a life of freedom aboard a pirate ship! Before that, you were a bank clerk.

H. Crewmate (Female). You signed on for a life of freedom aboard a pirate ship! Before that, you were a seamstress's apprentice.

“The angel doesn’t care about you so you should get out of there. We’re trying to get more spider silk, meet us at Aaron’s place in an hour and make sure you weren’t followed.” you say.

You hear Cookie say something to Margot, the clink of keys, and a door opening.

“I’m out. I’ll drive around a bit first, but I probably have a tracking spell on me because I was in the same room as Mr. Lewis while he had his magic active. I wish I knew how to check for it, but I’m still a beginner.”

That’s a problem, but you’re not sure how to deal with it right now. While you think, Cookie stumbles over his next question.

“Body’s with you, right? Is she, er, still mad?”

“She’s fine.” you say. The zombie’s ears twitch.
No. 995559 ID: b1b4f3

Tell him it seems like the anger won't go away until Saul has some manner of closure, whether that is healing or freedom or death or revenge. In order of your personal preference.

The tracking spell can be worked around. The mobsters will have trouble pulling off a clean assassination if you're driving around. Cookie comes and picks you up at Aaron's place after you get the silk, then you drive while Cookie turns it into magic string and/or communicates with Saul. First priority is to ease the pain if that's possible, second priority is getting some input on our plan for stopping DH and also what we're supposed to do about the moon god.
Oh and now that Cookie's out of the apartment you should spill the beans about what DH is trying to do, and what it told you.

“Uh, as long as Saul doesn’t hurt me. Do you know what’s happening with this angel stuff?”

You summarize the situation and Cookie lets out a low whistle. “And you’re going to try to get more string to fight stop this thing and its evil master plan? Good luck I guess. I’ll help you get supplies but I can’t promise anything else.”

“Right, well, call us if you can’t meet. See you in a bit.” You hang up, a tiny bit disappointed by Cookie’s indifference, and hand Body her phone.

“Put the hoodie back on and let’s move. You lead, I don’t remember how to get there.” you say.

There are a few things every human being on an advanced world knows about spaceflight.

The first is some basic history. Some time long before the foundation of the modern Historiam Calendar, ancient humanity sent an enormous amount of self-replicating machines hurtling through space. These probes, known as Terraformation Engines, were designed for one enormously complex task: to identify planetoids in habitable zones and seed them with life. Full-scale atmospheric creation, the artificial spread of both flora and fauna; the shaping of countless Earths and Earthlikes. This effort has created an ever-expanding sphere of habitable space, centered from the Core Worlds, humanity’s birthplace. The furthest edges of this sphere are known as the Rim. Humanity has spread outward from the Core, following in the wake of the Engines, colonizing, living, dying.

The second is some basic physics. It is impossible to move faster than the speed of light, excepting the will of the Archotechs- and they’re certainly not telling humans how to do it. This means that to cross the vast distances between stars is a task of centuries. The geologic timescale of spaceflight ensures the vast majority of planets are isolated. When humanity does travel, they do so in a state of artificially induced Cryptobiosis, only awoken at rare, regular intervals to prevent illness and assure mental well-being. The endless work of flight itself is performed by a Persona-Level AI, operating at a human capacity without fatigue as it guides the craft.

The third is a simple fact. We are alone. While life generated outside of humanity has been reported, no records within the Historiam exist of contact with intelligent life not originating from Humanity itself- with the possible exception of the Archotechs, but this is, reasonably, impossible to confirm.

Next, you scroll through the DMs from here to the CAPTAIN terminal. It’s reasonable to guess the actual captain isn’t on the other end. These seem to scroll back through a good length of time, given how many sets of exchanges there are. You start with the oldest.

FirstMate: This is the CMO. You there? >CAPTAIN: hey. FM here. think im promoted FirstMate: I saw the captain’s post on the public bulletin. Did he really..? >CAPTAIN: yep. right between the eyes. his stack’s fine though. FirstMate: That is… awful. >CAPTAIN: its ok. I dont really have anywhere to put him in here so hes still just in his tub. FirstMate: Given the circumstances it might be best just to let him lie. The bugs have already burrowed into the morgue. >CAPTAIN: gross FirstMate: I assume you’re not going to come out. I don’t blame you. Do you have enough supplies in there? A source of water? >CAPTAIN: yeah i got water out all the faucets in the bedrooms. Im good FirstMate: Keep that way. Stay safe, son. I worry that this is all going to get much worse before it gets better. FirstMate: Unlock door FirstMate: Open door FirstMate: Shock off FirstMate: Search “how to manual override airlock” FirstMate: Disable electricity in hall >CAPTAIN: lol >CAPTAIN: who is this FirstMate: Guardian. My armor is in my room. I need to get to my room. >CAPTAIN: she dont wanna talk to you dude. Fuckoff >CAPTAIN: blocked

Uh, is that the same mercenary you trapped in a burning room? He survived? Or was there more than one mercenary? Concerning. Oh well, he doesn't know where you are now and must be in pretty bad shape if he's still breathing.
...maybe you should ask the AI where the mercenary is right now.

Probably useless to try to talk to First Mate but you may as well give it a shot.

You tab back to the AI.
FirstMate: Hey, AI? Where is the merc? >Charlotte: The MERCENARY GUARD is currently located within OPERATIONS. Heartrate monitor indicates elevated stress levels! FirstMate: Just… operations? Can you be more specific? >Charlotte: I’m sorry! I’m afraid privacy restrictions prevent me from printing exact coordinates to anyone outside of the medical team or command staff. You’re not either of those.

Makes sense. Back to the CAPTAIN account.

FirstMate: Hi. Is anyone there?
The response takes a little bit to come in.
>CAPTAIN: yo >CAPTAIN: this you doc? FirstMate: No. This is the Maintenance Technician. I woke up recently. The AI realized I had a survival belt and could open my pod safely. >CAPTAIN: yo nice lucky >CAPTAIN: well not really. >CAPTAIN: tbh id rather die in my sleep than putz around here for however long we got FirstMate: AI says that might not have to happen. She’s gonna help me fix the engines. >CAPTAIN: lol >CAPTAIN: wait you’re actually serious? FirstMate: It’s either that or just wait until we crash, and I made it through too much back home to die here. FirstMate: My bunk is in one of the cabins past this deathtrap in the halls. It’s got my tools in it. Is there a way around? >CAPTAIN: not for anyone i dont want through. this is my fort. my sanctum.

It's been half an hour since we trapped the merc in there...

Tell FM that he can just ask the AI where you are and where the merc is, he's got command privileges. Though he'd be able to tell it's you anyway even if he didn't, as you're probably the only other person in this area. You want to know the exact room the merc is in right now though, since you trapped him in a room and want to know if he's still there.

It finally stopped raining, just as we arrive at the ridge.

According to the handbook, an assigned worker (which would be me) needs to go the Torrus' Ridge outpost to collect all the outgoing mail and parcels for our designated sector as well as a delivery route to find out which pinnacles we need to visit and in what order, and after that we'll be on our way.

Pilot has also asked me to pick up a few things, so I'll look out for stores and maybe pick up a few things for myself while I'm there.

Potential NSFW. Death may occur here.
This is the quest where you play as everyone but a certain character. We’ll call that special character ‘the catalyst’. Whether you help them out or work against them is up to you. No metagaming would be nice. But we’ll see how the demo rolls.

Some Rules:
• In a room full of people (e.g. a police station office, gang of thugs), you’ll only roleplay as two characters at a time. If there’s a mob (e.g. zombies, hive of alien bugs), you can roleplay them as one entity (e.g. pillage, march down the street, run away from the kaiju, etc.).
• The game may immediately end when the catalyst either dies or achieves its goal. Or perhaps something else that comes along to give the story a proper resolution.

Let’s begin.

I'm pretty sure that Siobhan can't zap herself. Think about it. Why does Mike need Siobhan to zap him? Given that he's punching in codes, he probably knows how to use the dustbender just fine, so why couldn't he just zap himself? Probably because it's too dangerous. Maybe the person receiving the zap gets a shock, or something, and isn't able to hold the dustbender steady long enough for the process to finish. Or maybe the dustbender needs to be moved around precisely. So if Siobhan wants to get zapped instead, she would have to talk Mike into doing it.

Personally, I'd just zap him.
Why? Because I think things will turn out more interesting this way. I mean, it's entirely possible that Siobhan getting zapped here is how she gets her powers. But how would she get them if she zapped Mike here? Something very interesting would have to happen indeed.

Wait... the samples that Penny found, why did she find them in the Old City? If all of them used right here, right now, through the dustbender, then it makes no sense to bring the empty vials to the Old City.
What I'm implying here is that, for the sample vials to end down there, where Penny finds them, it only makes sense if Mike and Siobhan do not open them here. But if they don't open the samples here, it means that either Mike and Siobhan choose to delay zapping their dust here, or they're interrupted by someone.

So... this means that Mike and Siobhan are quite possibly in immediate danger?

Siobhan might want to ask Mike to be quiet for a while and listen. Make sure there's no one around.
No. 994023 ID: a0dfd2


Okay, okay, let me get this straight.

Mike just instantly caved on this one, and is willing to potentially commit what amounts to suicide if this goes wrong, knowing FULL WELL there's no way in HELL we can do anything about it if so, considering how powerful he claims this group to be?

I mean, I get it, I do, but what kind of pressure did they use for him to just ... just accept, like this?

He wants to protect us, sure, but we're the one who had to ride it all out in this crazy new body, who risked our neck to even GET those cursed things in the first place, and whose had to upend our life because of them -- right along with Mike.

And moreover, he's right on the fucking escrow thing: we did it. It's done.

If those Orchid guys are really that powerful, then why in the everloving fuck would they need US to hide this shit for them, huh?

What are THEY so afraid of that they need to pawn off their big prize to someone like ourselves to keep it safe?

Has Mike asked himself that at all? Because if not, we need to.

We'll be lucky not to lose him from this, and playing the goddamned hero isn't going to fix it, either.

Luce doesn’t seem inclined to talk about anything other than the research itself. Maybe a different topic needs introducing?

Just then, Adrian notices a folding table to the left of Luce’s desk. It seems to be a temporary workstation of sorts. On the table is a clipboard and what looks like some electrical engineering equipment. To the left of the table on the ground is a large spherical object mounted on stilts. It looks like one of the drones.

A final card materializes on the table, glowing brightly before fading to reveal the picture on it. It’s the King of Spades!

Franklin, Mary, Cat and Wil, and Alma all reveal their cards!
Alma has the best hand with a Full House!

“Aww shucks,” Franklin sighs, “I had a good feeling about this one too.”

After politely waiting for most of the other players to get their snacks, Arthurius takes his turn to pick up some chicken strips and bbq dipping sauce. He then takes a quick glance at Mary Kil’s punch before swiftly looking in the direction away from the punch and towards Alma’s card without taking any of Mary’s drinks.

:sp_arthurius: :Way to go, Alma! A full house! That is lucky!

“Dang!” Mary says. “I’ll get my brushin, don’t you worry about that!” She shakes her flask of liquor at Cat and Will in what could be seen as a threatening manner if she wasn’t grinning so widely.

Willamina: AWW, guess I’ll have to settle for snapping a photo of Cat stripping, HEHEHE.

“I foresaw this outcome” Chinzebeth replies confidently.

Alma perks up.

“So, I guess that means I lose, huh?” Franklin stands and unfastens the button on his Jeans, “I guess I can take care of Alma’s dare at the same time, right?”

“Bold move!” Mary says, “Goin’ pants-off right off the bat.”

“I didn’t exactly dress for the competition,” she admits, “So I’m startin’ out no-pants, although you’ll all be able to see exactly what I’m not wearin’ in just a second” She laughs, undoing the top button of her labcoat.

“I got this new sweater, just for the party, so I don’t really wanna take it off right away. Sooooo…” He pulls his jeans down, exposing his boxer briefs beneath the hem of his sweater. As he pulls the jeans off his second foot, he begins hopping around in a circle on one foot.

:sp_arthurius: :Wow, you have excellent balance, Franklin!

“Thanks, I exercise a little so I’m pretty good at this sort of thing,” Franklin says as he passes, hopping around the table to hand his Jeans to Alma. "That was a really great hand, you're pretty good at this!"

Alma takes Franklin’s jeans and sets then aside and glances nervously at him, not sure where to direct her eyes.

“It just kind of worked out for me, I guess.”

The short Corgi steppies onto the table, tail wagging, and slowly strips off her labcoat, revealing the lacy lingerie that seems to be all she’s wearing otherwise.

“Woooo!” Mary howls, finishing her drink in one long swig before twirling the coat around her head and tossing it over to Alma.

“Woooo!” Landi echoes. Serah laughs and gives Mary an approving smile.

Chinzebeth applauds Mary. “You’re simply adorable, Mary! And such gorgeous fur!”

“You’re too kind, Your Majesty!” Mary says, holding up invisible skirts in a faux curtsy.

Franklin whistles from the sidelines and holds his hands in the air as he continues to hop around the table, “Wow you really dressed up for the party!”

“You know it!” Mary shouts, shaking her ass in Franklin’s general direction.

Cat: P-p-p-pretty lady…

“I don’t think I can compete with, well… that, Mary.” Serah smiles and holds out her shoe. She tries to avoid staring at Franklin as his hopping takes him past her chair. “Um, I didn’t expect things to go this quickly. And with such royalty playing… I feel underdressed. ”

Queen Chinzebeth turns up her nose. “You are underdressed indeed! If I were you, I’d fire that small glowing maid for her tardiness on dressing you, she’s barely done half the job!”

Serah tugs on her bodice nervously. “Oh, I couldn’t fire her. My… maid is quite attached to me. She’d be helpless on her own.”

Landi is too busy trying to drop-kick bits of Snortilla chips into her mouth to notice.

“I sympathize, my dear Lady Kensington,” Queen Chinzebeth says.”We all put up with a great deal of incompetence for that status of having a rare servant, and I must say your pet fairy has a sparkling radiance!”

Landi burps.

Arthurius coughs a little as some of the fairy dust that flew from Landi’s burp flies in his face.

“Lady Serah,” Chinzebeth raises an eyebrow. “Have you considered doing something with your hair? It’s so . . . common.”

“Um…” Serah scratches her neck. “I… I used to, but… my handmaid was the one who knew how to do it. I’m sorry it’s not to your liking.”

“Fear not!” Chinzebeth says warmly. “I meant no insult, and truly I sympathize with losing talented handmaidens. You have gorgeous golden hair, and it is simply a shame nothing is done with it.”

Sizz hits one-eye with her magic, clouding her vision. The killing strike instead grazes the girl's face. She screams and clutches her wound, letting go of the Dah-een.

You turn back to the dah-een. She's drenched, clutching a small knife. It's pathetic.

"Yer not gettin' way so quick bastard."

:guk:"You lose dah-een. You think to kill me with that?"

"Nay. Jus hold ye till the others get 'ere."

The other dah-een coughs as it pulls itself out of the water. He grabs One-Eye's spear and charges!

>Dah-een just don't know when to stop

Use your quickness to grab the spear, yank it from the other dah-een's grip (or if he holds on, just yank him, too) and smack one-eye over the head with the blunt end (or the other dah-een, depending).

Even if she stays conscious from that, with reach combined with reach, her only hope is to close the distance or run away. If she does the first, you clock her or grab her and if she does the second, you chase her down, being far quicker.

Dive underwater and trip him, then grab the spear, stand up, and throw at her.

Dodge the spear and use the shaft to knock both of them, we shouldn't kill the cyclope girl, she has information.
