Well, I can think of a few ideas.

maybe either ask Lilian when those records were dated, then head to the library to check for any newspapers around that date and check the obituaries for any kids that died that might look or sound familiar to you

check the graveyard for any tombstones with familiar names that might be your own.

or maybe... this might sound crazy but... what if you asked doctor dad himself? If we do this, it's probably going to take very careful ways of wording things in order for doctor dad to tell us some information... and without getting in trouble. But I have this feeling that it is possible. This option can give us more information about your past, and Graduation. But like I said, getting Doctor Dad to spill the beans I think will be tricky, but I do not think it'll be impossible. Like I said, he probably kept things secret from you because he was worried about how you'd react, but you seemed to have reacted fine to what Lilian told you about your revival.

those are the only three ideas I have so far. I'm Leaning towards talking to your dad personally because I think you'll be able to handle it, but I Might think of more ideas later.

...

Hey Franklin, also, I just realized. This means you have 2 BIRTHDAYS each year!

And I'm going to say, lets not visit mom right now, even if Temmie told us to. I really don't think Franklin is ready for that until he gets more information. His fear level is pretty high right now after all.

>Dr. Franklin Stein and Franklin Stein Jr.
Okay, I gotta give this one to Lemmy, that's pretty culturally significant for us as well, to an amusing degree.

>Yourself
So, if I'm being perfectly honest, I do feel like you're pretty close to figuring everything out- however, the fortune you received more or less stated as much that you wouldn't have enough time to figure it all out. I don't know if you'll have more time later when this is all over, but it feels like you have enough to work off of, potentially even without us.

See if you can nab a notebook and some paper for organizing your thoughts for the future, about yourself, and so on. I'm sure it'll help you a lot when we're gone.

>Graduation
The other group just reached the Abandoned Plant (hopefully unseen by Aiden) - if that turns out to be relevant to Graduation, it might be redundant to look for more now. If not though, then you guys will have to find a new lead somehow.

>What We Want?
I don't know about the others, but what I hope for you guys in Cattenom is a combination of Safety and Growth. What that means for everyone is a little different.
Sure, the Graduation thing is... worrying, but to me, that's personally secondary.

Early autumn is pleasant in Cedar Ridge. Summer's hottest days are behind you and the shade of the Douglas fir trees that blanket the town keep the underbrush cool.

North of the lake that divides the town are sets of woods. Interrupted only by mud roads and storm drains that rarely see use outside of the rainy season. This grove is only a mile from the town's one high school. Frequented by teens and alcoholics alike for bonfire parties that leaves the smell of ash in the air. This far east into Oregon the breeze is warm and sluggish, trapped in by mountain ranges.

From where you stand you can hear when the occasional truck passes through Cedar Ridge's main road. Barely. It helps you keep your facing when you're unsure which way is home.

You are in the north in the outskirts of town.

B. Whatever kaiju invades, they mostly come from the sea, whether it be flying, or land.

And while we fight a sea kaiju, If we see any flying kaiju or land kaiju going a certain direction, we'll alert the guards. To go over there.

That said, 2. Have them stay. That way, if any other district gets attacked, the guards will be ready to head over there.

“…So, why are we making this again?” The green stickman said to, honestly no one in particular. Just a habit of thinking out loud. Something he should probably get rid of if he’s now going to be working here.

The black stockmen adjacent to him lets out a short, but extremely exasperated sigh, the type you do after getting asked the same question for the four-hundredth time (even though this is the first time being asked) “It doesn’t have a purpose-at least not yet anyways.” He continues to write on his board. Noting down subject’s vitals (stable), mental action (None so fair(same as yesterday)), any changes in body (also none(it appears the subject has reached “maturity”)) and…dick size…he once again leaves that part blank.

“You think it’s a …you know?” He replies before black even has a chance to answer, “A living sex toy?”

The mere thought stings black’s mind, “No. it is not a “living sex toy”. It is probably going to be some soldier or slave race they’re making.” He talked like a stern parent denying a kid wanting to go to McDonalds.

Green is quite a bit taken back by this response, “You…you actually want them to be something like that?”

Black once again sighs for the same reason in somehow more exasperated tone, “Yes, yes I do.” He sounds even more annoyed than before, “Because if you’d just used your brain for one second, you’ll realize that we’re SCIENTISTS! Not some…some over glorified sex sells men!”

“I know I know! I was just saying it’s a little weird how there’s no other protective measures! I mean, no turrets, lock down doors, not even harder glas-“

“No you don’t know!” Black is just actively yelling at Green now. Green definitely didn’t deserve this-and Black knows. He’s just venting at him because of all the mouths and late nights and failures and miscommunications thAT WOULD

That sound a bit fucked up and the premisse isn't entirely clear. I presume those two are introducing the protagonist we are choosing or green guy will become another specie.

>BIRD because let's talk about pseudo-penis.
Firstly the vast majority of aves don't have one. It's all cloaca rubbing against cloaca for the most part.
Among the species that have, there are a few different organs that are described as a pseudo-penis. One of those, for example, is and inversion of the genitalia present in both the male and female, the male use his during mating to push the female pseudo-penis inside her.
The pseudo-penis you must be thinking is the one from the ratites like emus and ostriches. It's internal, conical, long and pink.
This kind of genitalia work different from a penis despite the similarities. It is able to regenerate, and in fact it might fall on it's own and grow back. The erection is accomplished by pumping fluid like a penis, but unlike a penis the fluid is not blood. It doesn't have an internal duck to pump sperm inside the female, it instead guide the sperm externally, meaning the erection only start after the ejaculation.
So you got a long tentacle like member covered with tick cum that will become fully erected inside the partner, but by that point the rubbing is already over. How would it feel? No idea.

”Prurient Passage”
A Lascivious Labyrinth side story.

Wiki and previous threads: https://tezakia.net/wiki/Lascivious_Labyrinth
Discussion thread: https://tezakia.net/kusaba/questdis/res/134609.html#134609

Somewhere deep in the most tenebrous wilderness, far from civilization and decency, it is said that a grand temple of the demi-god Wjares lays hidden. In those ancient rumor-shadowed halls, acts of unbridled hedonism and profane rituals were indulged in wild abandon, all to please the demi-god the structure was dedicated too. It is a place where instinct and impulse is acted upon without care.

There are also myths about a great treasure, hidden in the deepest catacombs, far below the surface, forever watched over by mighty guardians and fiendish traps. The corridors are said to twist and turn with a serpent-like suggestion, their writhing path hiding many dangers and foes, but if you stay vigilant they will lead you to your greatest desire. Many before you have been seduced by the myth and been enthralled by the ravenous desire…

…Of the Lascivious Labyrinth… err… I mean “Of the Prurient Passage”! …yeah, that’s better.

…no, Volek, I didn’t steal this idea from Ptamet! I swear on my name Wjares that this has nothing to do with her labyrinth, brother.

Any chance you can throw your voice down the room, along with something to make a clatter? Getting her to fumble her light and chase after "you" might let you quietly slip back around behind her.
The plants won't recognize you, so don't give them a chance to; move out of it, especially before she can draw her wand, because that thing probably doesn't like light, and she's about to fuck up both of your days.
If things get worse, hitting the glowy thing is probably either a very good, or very bad idea.

And there was no pressure plate, as that was triggered before you arrived.

Soon enough, there’s a break in the trees ahead of you. The end of these woods. You’d made it through without any major incident thankfully.

You weren’t certain what would be awaiting you when you got past the treeline. Your hope was that it would be the plant of course, but you didn’t actually expect such a thing. It felt a little too convenient that you wouldn’t have to search around at all.

And yet, the very moment you break from the trees and step onto blacktop... There it is.

Roger: “Whoa...”

He said it better than you could.

There were multiple towering structures... You hadn’t expected that.

Your first instinct is to wonder which might be the power plant. It’s a foolish thought. Together, all of this was the Cattenom Nuclear Power Plant.

The buildings were Massive, taller than any you’d ever entered; and the designs were Foreign, unlike any you’d ever seen in town. The parking lot stretched out wide, with room to house more cars than you’d ever seen in your life. It felt like you had stumbled into another world.

A. I don't think Roger is comfortable enough with us yet, and if someone does come down the road, they'll be more likely to see us if there is two people watching instead of one. Plus, we're not as fast as roger if we have to run, raising the chances of getting spotted. And I don't think Clive is social enough to make things less awkward with Roger. Let Roger become more comfortable with us through our actions during this mission instead of speaking with him. Clive isn't comfortable enough to be social anyways, let alone someone who is afraid of him. Let him practice with Enid for awhile first.

Also, trying to talk Bec into staying with us might be more important. She did seem shaken by the parents hiding something big from her, so she might be more willing to help get to the bottom of things.

To add on, we also promised to fact check with Bec after she finished speaking to Roger. We can do that while we help her with the door. I have a feeling it's going to be helpful if she hears both sides of the story of what happened.
>>
No. 1051315 ID: 22eda9

I think A is the right choice too.
While I totally misread something earlier, it did still lead me to a relevant line of thought however-
If we see anything in there that's... well, visually displeasing/hard to look at, I suppose, we can warn the others in advance. Namely Enid.


While a part of me does want Clive to work things out with Roger, the biggest problem seems to be a matter of "What do I even say?" followed by "He's made himself clear, why bother?" - which isn't really helping things.

"...Draw anything cool lately?"
That doesn't really sound like Clive, but... what do I know?
I wonder if Clive has any interest in art.

I highly doubt Clive is ready to make up with Roger, after how badly he messed up with Enid. Let's not push it.

A. Not just because I suggested something door-related in thread 3B, or because doors are fascinating in general, but because it's the right thing to do.

C: "I'm just gonna say it's literally impossible to reunite me with my trainer and leave it at that for now. I've picked up a lot of strategy and trivia, though; it's possible your trainer was holding out for you to learn Giga-Drain at Lv. 45, which is admittedly a pretty wicked move. Even if that is the case, though, I know for a fact you can brute-force learning a new move if you use the right approach and keep at it."

Spheal case is much more concerning than running away after a disagreement. Her family and friends were killed and skinned, that is a nightmare scenario I wouldn't expect in a pokemon story.

>Stay calm

Maintaining your cool is not the greater force in comparison to your blistering chagrin by a wide margin, but you know better than to fly off the handle over this activity you will undoubtedly have to repeat numerous times today. It does no favors to reduce your rapidly-building stress right now, though.

>Grab the knob

Your quivering hand reaches out and wraps itself around the doorknob. You're incredibly reluctant to do anything with it, owing to the fact that could end up barring you from entry - or rather exit - even harder. It takes a while before you can muster up the courage to start moving it. But the floodgate opened upon your mind of various techniques with which to move it proves too much to bear, and instead of any coherent engagement, you just kind of aimlessly jiggle it in random directions.

That certainly doesn't stop you from trying a number of methods. You push it in, pull it out, tug it left and right, and apply judicious amounts of body weight against as many sections of the door itself you think might reasonably give way depending on the position of the knob. The burgeoning rancor of your failed attempts is disrupted by Amanda calling out a ways behind you.

AMANDA: "Are you alright? You've been screwing with the doorknob for 10 minutes straight."

If you're here to commend, not criticize, then you could drop the air of military authority for a minute and just summarize the latest feedback, quick and to the point.

Unless it is important that air be maintained in which case one could still try to hurry it up by skipping the more rote and regular stuff you don't think there'll be any issues answering or receiving feedback on.

>rumours
What were those rumors now again?

... and, say, what sort of clone mix and which generation is Grayblood here?

>What were those rumors now again?
They’re always something seemingly benign, but I know how these things play out. Starts out small, becomes a big problem later. I’d step in, but my intervention doesn’t always make things better.

>If you're here to commend, not criticize, then you could drop the air of military authority for a minute and just summarize the latest feedback, quick and to the point.
Standards are standards. I can’t go out of my way to give her preferential treatment - not past what I’ve already been doing for her anyway.

>One could still try to hurry it up by skipping the more rote and regular stuff you don't think there'll be any issues answering or receiving feedback on.
That’s exactly what I had in mind. Grayblood is already quite capable and I’d be doing her a disservice keeping her here too long. Not that I can bring it up directly to her anyway. She was never one for special treatment.

>What sort of clone mix and which generation is Grayblood here?

Gray’s a relatively new generation - she’s over two years old currently. You can see the Rhappor genes in her like you can see the Asliann genes in me, but whatever mix they’ve got going on there, she really embodies the idea that the Trace Clones aren’t quite like any of the species any more.
I suppose what with the generation they put out last year, where they started trying to splice in the genes of animals into the clones, they’re much more open to experimentation now. Not that such experimentation has led to good results - I feel like they’re just bringing some very unfortunate people into existence.

Back on the range, huh. I’ve heard stories from Patz and Leeza about their days shooting targets in the mainland. Here, there’s a certain… stuffiness to the air, given that it’s indoors. Can’t say I ever really looked forward to the range like the others - I’d much rather be making the most of my time with vehicles instead.

In truth, I don’t think Grayblood’s performance needed an early evaluation. But the higher ups asked as much.
I ran through the rote lines in my head -
“Quarterly evaluations are crucial for maintaining morale and performance amongst comrades”, it went.
Not so much when it’s a solo evaluation conducted way before any of the others can square themselves away.

As I walked by Grayblood, her aim’s a little off. Maybe it’s the time pressure.
Even if her friend’s sick, I’m not going to cut her any slack - I’ve still got a role to perform, even if it stretches the definitions of my duty a little.
“If you’re trying to rush it because of your friend, don’t. Her condition is stable enough to last a while yet.”

…I don’t think my reassurances are helping much, judging from that dark look on her face.
Changing the topic.

"Do you see those targets over there, Grayblood?"

“No, that’ll be all for today.”

“Permission to leave, sir?”


I sigh. “Dismissed. Go, see your friend.”

And there she goes.
…I know the others are worried, but…
I don’t think she’s the supposed Rogue they’re worried about. They’re putting undue stress on the girl all because of that bloody rumor.
I only hope that she’s ready for the troubles ahead of her.

Why would anyone be Rogue - and why did you and whomever else is on top of this expect a basic performance evaluation to aid in exposing them as such? Normally one would quietly surveil people under suspicion, no? Like... through the SAI.

...were you actually ordered to put her through evaulation to keep her busy and away for a bit?

>Grayblood's friend
Who were - or soon to were - they now again? Is it the daughter of that project lead, or another clone?

To Assistant: We got a response from Head of Research via a different channel, thanks. Who has control of Alex's arm right now?

We should carry Alex up, let them see a bit of what we're trying to accomplish. It doesn't break the Tenets, so it's fine if the action is discovered.

((I think we need to decide who will be doing what. Someone needs to see Head of Archives, obviously. We could also go talk to Head of Research and perhaps help out with data interpretation or otherwise filling in the blanks. Someone could also try to explore Anarchy's territory and see what can be done to help. Lastly, someone could investigate AdminI and see if we can either extend an olive branch or sabotage its efforts... but trying to stay away could be a benefit too. I wish we knew what we could do to buy Anarchy more time... oh, I wonder if giving units stealth is actually a bad idea in that respect. Maybe we should start handing over... slightly inaccurate information. Or someone could actively sabotage the system...?))

((I agree. We definitely want Alex to join in the branches at some point, but the question is whether tonight is the right time -- for now I'll delay my vote too)).

Is it possible to pull Alex up with an added filter to fog it up? Like, make it more dreamy/trippy than initially planned (perhaps set it in an exotic locale). A filter to be removed on subsequent nights. I think my vote is "yes if this is possible, no otherwise".

My apologies to the Head of Science for my rudeness and pressure.

Oh hell! I was only able to kill Stitch after he was already weakened after a fight with Garm! And only then it was because we used explosive rounds to pierce the steel in his chest! We gotta get out of here. Toothpick, how wide is the ledge out the window? It won't be easy trying to shimmy across with her if I have to carry her. I'll look around here, maybe I can find some kind of rope or something I can use to tie her to us that way we can climb out of here.

Pandora help me look, all we have on us is we a belt and a tie and that might help but I'd like something more sturdy if we can.

Dimensional portal winks out. Thunderclap of unraveling tidal force shatters the surrounding stone wall. You're stranded in a cavernous space full of ancient, semi-functional machinery. Can you find another way home?

Core of character creation is an adjective, a noun, and a verb.

Noun options:
Arkus (leader)
Delve (explorer)
Jack (rogue)
Glaive (fighter)
Nano (mage)
Wright (builder)

For adjective and verb, describe what you want to be and do, I'll compile a short list of the relevant options.

After a brief moment of deliberation, Misha heaves a sigh, nodding. "Alright alright."

She re-sheathes her dagger and emerges from behind DANI to approach the hurt goatman, along the way she spends a point of Intellect and Iotum on Right Tool for the Job to fashion an impromptu first-aid kit. She also makes sure to nab the patch of missing skin (that DANI presumably still has stuck to her hand) as she passes the AI.

Carefully holding up the makeshift medical tools and being as nonthreatening as possible, she'll scoot past the still-raised spears, then kneel down to examine and fix up the hurt margyr; antiseptic/anaesthetic gel and plasters to reattach and seal up the missing skin and soothe any other bumps or scrapes until the body can knit itself together. (2 trainings in healing + an asset from Right Tool)

The Wright's lack of bedside manner immediately resurfaces once she is done focusing on the task at hand, voice grumpy when she stands.
"Alright, boo-boos've been patched. Any further complaints; I'm gonna need to direct to yer mummy who should be able to do the requisite 'kissin it better'."

With a clear sense of why DANI doesn't exactly mind them having weapons established, she will give the still holding their weapons people a sharp look and point to the ground, and afterwards go over to the happy couple, placing the spears near by, and go in to pick them off the ground and pull them and the blanket in two, only to pick up the reinforcing bar spears and attempt to non-consensually fashion the blanket halves into a sort of covering garment by wrapping the spears around their body like a pretzel to hold the blanket in place.

Process of separating and dressing the couple involves more torn-velcro noises and blood than expected, but otherwise achieves a swift and satisfactory result.

Apparent leader of the goat-people is outraged by this, howling and stabbing DANI though the back of the left knee. Core joint structure intact, but that's still five might damage, reduced to 2 by armor. The spearhead also slipped through the surrounding armored weave, overpenetrating far enough that it's now pinning her leg to the ground. Chief catches an elbow to the gut in response. He staggers away, disarmed and stunned.

Turns out margyr crotch-parts involve more barbs than human equivalent, with a correspondingly slow and laborious procedure for safe disengagement, but femoral arteries are in approximately the same place. If there weren't a surgeon so close by, with just the right tools already in hand, one or both of the 'happy couple' likely would not have survived. Melaina manages to convey this information to the goat-people, positioning Misha as a benevolent force, balancing DANI's severity.

Ivori just finished coating her blade in a thin sheen of non-splattering sludge when the giant dough-fungus burst into the room she was in, forcing her to break concealment and run straight into the kite room.

Ivori leaves the dark, kite-shaped room with the conveyor belt and the exultant mycelimancer, flees through the brightly lit semicircular "inspector's lounge" where the margyr and most of the other PCs (and some piles of potentially salvageable debris) are, then departs via the wider of the two available exits, perpendicular to the way she came in.

Unfortunately it's an open archway, there's no door to slam. After dashing down that hall, Ivori reaches a room maybe 15 meters square. Floating in the center of that room, roughly the size and height of a human head, is a hole in space. Flickering aura around it leaves the room dimly lit.

Two other possible exits from there. To the left, a spherical room is visible, like an enormous inside-out pearl, but the way is blocked by a transparent panel - difficulty 5 intellect task to open it nonviolently.

Directly on the opposite side of the hole in space (relative to where you came in), another hallway, with narrow-beam lights set into the walls every few meters around shin height and a distant whirring-rotor sort of noise echoing from the far end.

“Between what we’ve learned and Mr. Graves’s knowledge of vampiric runes, we think we can operate it. He’s been a huge help to us so far.” 

“Mmm…” the kobold leader nods noncommittally, “I trust your judgement, but I don’t trust that machine. Everything left behind by the old masters brings nothing but ruin.”

Garrin shakes his head'I'm afraid that's not possible, I need you here Ahtas'

'you do?' The mare smiles with exitement.

Garrin gives a nod'Indeed the Princess has lost most of her guards, and needs replacement companionship'

Tirzaea's smile fades replaced with confusion '...w-what?'

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

Realization finally reaches the woman her voice cracks into a childish whine 'But I haven't been trained for such things, you couldn't expect me to bear arms could you?! My father said-'

Yiddle interrupts with a scowl'Be quite child! you are beholden to the knight captain, you better do has he says or it's the dungeons for you. forget anything your foolish father told you.' the old kobold then hobbles off.

>Pull up!
I scramble between the Beformicans and grab onto the rope. Anet with all her bags is really heavy, but between the two of us we manage to pull her up. Unfortunately, Jaina ends up having to defend all three of us as we lie catching our breath. One of them strikes her on the back trying to tear her armor off, but she manages to break away from their grip. Pent and Jaina end up focusing on one, then the other, flanking and driving them over the edge with painful zaps and wide swings.
The cart finally leaves the Beformicans in the dust, and we’re safe for a moment.
“Are you okay Jaina? It looks like you’re bleeding,” I ask.
She grits her teeth and waves me off. “It’s nothing. It hit the armor. You should see the other gal.”
The cart travels much faster than we could on foot, and its route loops past a building next to the labs we were aiming for. We can jump from the cart down onto the walkway and duck inside, bypassing a whole lot of sneaking in and up from the ground floor. There’s just two questions: how do we approach stealth, and what to have the cart do after we’re gone.

> The way forward:

Pent has lived like this the longest and has the most experience in dealing with the beformicans, but splitting up might not be a good idea anyways, what if the group is spotted? Or Pent can't get out after her distraction? Jaina is (most likely) injured and I don't think Sam or Anet are the best of fighters, and Pent would be able to spot anything indicating beformicans before any of you did.

Although ambushing is better than head-on fighting, but you just came out of a fight and it was a fight where you even had an ambush-advantage yet you still came out roughed-up. Any injuries from said fight might be a problem during another ambush, and there could be way more beformicans the next time.

The entire purpose of going to the archaeology site was to explore these ancient ruins anyways, if you're careful enough and have Pent as a guide you can avoid any more beformicans and traps (hopefully). There's not exactly a hurry right now anyways. Take the long way and make sure to find a safe(ish) spot to quickly check Jaina's carapace, even if it did not pierce through her armor it should still be reinforced or something. If that place is safe enough, check everyone for injuries after a fight, it would be bad to discover any problems too late.

I say do things Anet's way

>The cart:

If there really is no time to figure out how to work the cart, and just park it instead, getting it stuck in vegetation sounds incredibly dangerous. I think you would just end up crashing it, but that would make enough noise for a sort of distraction if done right, but that would still be way more dangerous. Even if it is meant as a getaway vehicle getting it "stuck" in vegetation kind of defeats the point.

I really can't think of a way to get it stuck in some vines an

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…

As the flame subsides, you’re forced to duck for cover as a spear of flame whiffs past barely a decimeter from your head. Standing behind one of the pillars, you try your best to get a glimpse of who’s trying to cook you, but the flame spears keeps raining all around you, pinning you to the spot. It’s clear that they don’t want you to move from this location.

”Hey! That was my trap, you inflated puffball!” you hear a sultry female voice yell out, a voice you recognize. It’s that mushroom lady, Phassli or what her name was, and this is clearly the flame lance weapon she had. ”Come out here so I can burn ya!” the taunts as she keeps firing, before you hear her weapon click and hum, ”Eat spores, sap drinker!”

------------------

:RaolmeCommSO: It seems the Outlaw Queen has some trouble with Phoenix, as she’s being pinned down behind cover with her flame lance! Though, you know what they say about you mushrooms and cover.
:MrrghCommSO: Never hide from someone that will burn you out, Xolin. We can only hope she has a plan to deal with the spores before she gets burned!
:RaolmeCommSO: Oh! And look at that! It seems Slicer got the drop on the Onyx King on the other side of the arena! The Flaugnir might be in trouble now, as those Korak’s are not to be trifled with in close combat!
:MrrghCommSO: It seems that he’s on the defensive, trying to retreat from her… but she’s keeping up without problem!

Seems both the pyros and the close quarters wound up together. The other fight will go quickly, no doubt, which is a shame. For Phoenix, sounds like she needs to reload, and is sending spores your way. So, either run, or shoot them right as she deploys them.

Invisible nerd (Ba'taq) detected by that pillar in front of you. Might be worth using him as a shield, but if you can convince him to help you against that burning mushroom, all the better. Drag him along to safety, he won't want to be here in a few seconds and you can say you helped him. Just don't turn your back to him (even if showing off some primo ass), or leave yourself unarmed. So, probably don't shoot Phoenix yet.

You need a shield or distraction to get out from the suppression fire. If noone else comes in, blind fire in her general direction. If you're lucky, you might ignite her cannon blast on herself, like shooting a rocket barely past the barrel. Even if you miss, she'll at least h9ld back the spores out of fear that you could.

From there, it's either tactical retreat or closing in for CQC.

>This might be the end of Urak Vol’s short career folks!
Nah. If he's not tactical enough to know how to use his Prox Grenade to put some space between them, if not lay a trap, he wouldn't be an interesting fight for the finale.

>Tucking and rolling are for weaklings! You’ll do a fucking three point landing with this suit!
Tucking and rolling will keep you moving, which is helpful when you're trying to not get shot.

Doing a three point landing brings you to a dead stop, which gives everyone a chance to shoot you before you can get yourself moving again.

>Preferable atop of someone as well!
Or if no one is under you, you can grab someone and jump over the edge with them to make them cushion your fall.

>cloud of spores explodes
>>1051105
>"Eat spores, sap drinker!”
Since her spores explode when exposed to flames, you don't want to stay where you are when she throws them! The cloud of spores will go around your cover so that when she uses her weapon, it'll ignite the spores and still hit you behind cover!

This is a short fan quest taking place way before the events of The God Damned by Whistler and Graphygraphie https://questden.org/kusaba/quest/res/944457.html. Fret not, as reading it is not necessary to understand this tale. Take it as an aperitif for a much grander one.

A day in the life of people who just want to get through the end of it.

>Intrigued
Each tribe has a purpose, each tribe is divided, in a role that most befit them. For each tribe and creature is different and has their own part to play in the world.
While others may resign to this and shun what’s alien to them, there are those who, to a degree, embrace that strangeness, that broad range of beings, from the akin to the utterly foreign, who form a constant part of their world and indeed their everyday life. They are odd and mysterious, and the wise always affront such things with wariness, but there is ever an allure to be found in the mysterious.

As she settles on a proper spot to keep watch over the street, Trezi allows herself a little smile as she surveys the passers-by.

Each tribe has its role, each tribe is different. But strange as it may seem, Trezi is glad they are together.

“I-I’m sorry to inconvenience you, honored Martinet, but I need your help!”

A rather young Artisan with bright, curved markings approaches Trezi, joining her hands pleadingly and beginning to kneel as she speaks. Noticing a laprine or looking their way, Trezi walks towards her and signals her to rise, before letting her continue.

“One of my wards is missing. He stay home and continue practicing but after I came back from picking up breakfast, he was gone! “

“H-his name is Prielos. He is training to become a seamster, like me. Please, it’s been over an hour! I’ve been looking all over the neighbourhood but I can’t seem to find him. Would you help me look for him?”

Curses. Trezi is not supposed to leave her post today. Not until a couple more hours, at least. She has been a proper guardswoman for a couple years now, but she is still fairly junior in the eyes of her superiors.
Keeping the peace and helping the citizenry is what Martinets are meant to do, but if she goes looking for a missing kid, it may actually take her hours. If she abandons her watch for that long, she could get in trouble.

What should Trezi do?

Go look for the kid, this is classic stuff, like helping old ladies cross the street
