Notes from the quest author

Alright, all of this looks intimidating but it is much simpler. In the lower-left corner, there is the inventory backpack that shows how much free space you have and any item will consume a certain amount of pieces. The first item will be the red blaster that you get along with the holster, which means that this item can be permanently equipped widout the need to put it in the bag and its single cartilage only takes one square of space.

The next weapon is the ion shotgun which is represented with orange color, it is good at close range but not so much at the long-range. Also, its shells take up more space.

Third weapon marked with the blue color rapid-fire blaster, the best way in dealing with multiple opponents at once.

The last weapon is the grenade launcher which is designated with the purple color, this weapon is only best at long range but it is extremely dangerous to use it in close proximity. It can change its grenade types between explosive, incendiary, smoke, acid, and freeze grenade. But if this thing looks like it is taking a lot of space you can simply choose the grenade pack but then you won't be able to change between the other types. The last thing to mention about all the range weapons is that they all come loaded up with the proper ammunition.

In the next color green, we have two close-range weapons the laser cutter and the tazer. The gray color is for robotic companions Gideon and the earworm. The main purpose for Gideon is to follow you around in the rooming mode at which point he can carry additional things while the earworm is primarily used to assess the situation.

At yellow we have the short-range jetpack and the whist mounted portable shield. The shield can also be equipped to be carried all the time and take no space.

The last two pink items are the magical injector and the spear suite core. One can heal the H.T.A.P

Eight weeks ago, strange lights were reported along the coast some five hundred miles south of An-Teng- Anathema, or so the local Immaculates believe. Seven weeks ago, an oath-bound brotherhood was sent to “cut their teeth” so to speak, investigating the reported anima banner and sending word of their findings back to the Realm. Four weeks ago, they stopped reporting in, seeming to have disappeared like so many cargo ships and laborers before them. Two weeks ago, you were hired by an Immaculate Monk as bodyguards and worldly aids to travel to Ironport, the last known location of your younger cousins, with the intent to find out what happened to them, ensure stability of the realms interests in the region, and most importantly, bring in whatever anathema caused this mess, alive. About three hundred miles before reaching your destination however, a Lintha ship has been spotted, attempting to put out what seems to be a rather threatening amount of flames currently endangering hull, sail, and crew.
Post a character sheet, describe where you are physically in relation to the burning ship, the method of transportation that got you there, and provide a roll accompanying a declared action.

Prayer roll, difficulty 6 because you count a priest, no animal sacrifice or expensive incense or anything like that in the mix, but fateful (performance)excellency reduces the TN from 7 to 4, which gets you from 9 successes to 11, clearing the roll by a significant margin.
At the beck and call of fate's overseers, the least gods of the waves rise, a thousand tiny spirits pulling the boat forward- only to hear an unpleasant crack from the stern of the boat, accompanied by the shouting of the crew. First mate Doloma rushes to Ribbon's side:
"Ma'am, you're assistant to the dragons, yeah? There's some big sea monster wrapped around the ship, and I think it just busted the rudder. What are your orders?"

Before the journey started, chain of command was set up such that Marisa and Posu are considered of equal rank, and in charge of the ship, to be deferred to on all matters, then, in the case that they couldn't be relied on for direction, Ribbons speaks for the monk and threats of violence or operational concerns should be brought to her next, with the usual chain of command (captain, first mate, ect) spreading out from there. Ribbons can see the monsterous purple head of an infernal worm, yozi beasts bound to the service of the Lintha, rearing it's toothy maw at the back of the ship.

Agent Lobelia feels herself and her new friend suddenly rise much higher in the water as the least gods of the waves buoy you and start creating a channel of waves pulling towards your vessel. You can see an infernal worm rearing it's head, threatening the ship, and the crew preparing arms in response. Before we resolve the post-fight part of your post, is there anything Lobelia does now?

Looks like I can't do a proper banishment with just adept-level warding and exorcism, but I'll try brandishing a prayer strip anyhow. Worth a shot. Bark out a few basic commands in the Lintha dialect of Old Realm, "halt" and "stand down" and "turn back" and so on. If it's bound to obey someone specific, maybe point out that they're already fleeing.

On the other hand, if it's too stupid to recognize individuals, much less follow politics, Compassion says I'm ethically opposed to hurting it so long as reasonable alternatives are available.

Great. with all the dragons gone dealing with the Pirates and getting lost at sea, the ship was left in the hands of the assistant who could not walk on water. But an assistant that does not take notes and documents that could be relevant to a given job, would be quickly fired. it is as simple as a thought as Ribbons reaches into their Elsewhere pockets and pulling out a dossier on sea Demons. They had a suspicion what this creature was,But double checking never hurt. Measure Twice and Cut once and all. While they were confirming this Hunch, Ribbons took charge and was telling the crew to brace the ship and repair what they can and sending a team to the storage to gather up as much Caustic Potash they can. a common alkaline cleaner and sterilizer usually used for wine, and seeing as this is a yacht, having wine would not be out of the question. the reason for this is, if this creature is a demonic sea creature, it might have come from the acidic seas of Kimbery, and if you mix a base with an acid. . . they tend to cancel each other out, similar to salting a slug. hopefully creating a hostile environment for this Demon will cause it to flee to safer waters, or at least by time for a more openly combat ally to make it back aboard.

Charisma four, presence 0, stunt 2 (if you're going to use that to refill a pool, please post a recap that reflect your current levels in various pools) means you rolled...
>9, 3, 2, 7, 10, 6,
Four successes just falls short of an MDV of 5. Trying to get your rescued companion involved? Keeping your distance or working to close faster?

Let's treat this as a craft water roll to create a harmful substance in the water and drive the creature away- Intelligence two, Craft (Water) 0, stunt 2, means
>7, 2, 1, 1,
One success- the water is being churned by the emergence of the infernal worm, and the conditions to create a potent irritant to drive the creature away are far from ideal, what with only ship supplies, untrained hands, and no tools for measurement or mixing, much less a way to keep it from simply diluting away. Probably not more threatening than extreme heat or cold. At this point, we need to roll to join battle as the crew and ship come under fire from the beast's massive coils and slavering teeth.

Rock: EAT

Blue: DIG to discover the VAST SECRETS OF THE EARTH!!!
No. 1004114 ID: 3bb105

The exhausting of our lone known food source here means we have to switch to rationing food for the time being. Nobody eats anything today.

Lets plan to have ROCKS eat one VINE tomorrow and see how much that satiates them to get a idea how filling the VINES are; I don't want a REPTEKA to eat one when it'd satiate them over their maximum since I'm unsure if they can store the excess as fat or some such.

DORA: Bring FOUR YOLKIES and EXPLORE for new food sources. Avoid combat and try to find a higher vantage point so you can see farther.


ROCKS: Bring TWO YOLKIES to assist you. Pour one WATER on a patch of dirt, scoop a small hole in the resulting mud and plant the non-bulb end of one VOLATILE VINE in the hole. Then backfill the hole with dirt, followed by ZAPPING the VINE with the TWIG WAND. Maybe that'll make the VINE grow more VINES. If that doesn't work, then try repeating the test, but this time place a piece of RUINS METAL at the bottom of the hole before placing the VINE in.

If we can't find another food source nearby or discover a way to create or grow food here, then we're gonna have to consider the prospect of moving to a new home. If that is necessary then having BLU able to move is vital, preferably under their own power, but if not then at least light enough to be carried.

If BLU is carrying one or less eggs in themselves will that make them light and thin enough to travel long distances under their own power with no limbs? If they had basic legs, up to how many eggs could they have in themselves and still be able to move long distances?

BLU, while resting after laying those eggs, think of what would be needed to build a wheeled handcart, pushed by ROCKS, big enough to carry all our lighter and more valuable items (food, glass windmill blade, etc., not bricks or dirt) plus yourself when you were most egg filled.

You are part of the Secret Extermination Command

You control a squad of Constructed Organisms, each with useful biological powers.

Your job is to monitor and command your squad to exterminate paranatural threats to Gray Lake, an amazing and prosperous city. It is extremely important that the people of Gray Lake aren't aware of the somewhat unfortunately common paranatural threats, and so officially, you don't exist.

Do well, and you will be assigned more C.Orgs, or even be able to commission specific gene combinations, and reap the probably-existent benefits of being part of a secret government organization.

Do poorly, and your squad will be recycled and you'll have to get a real job or something.

This is your first assignment. Your commander has informed you that a local business is a front for evil cultists. As far as HQ is concerned, everyone in the building is a threat.

Your cameras go live as your squad enters the building.

Yiann is monstrous and cannot use the blood plasma rifle. The only ranged weapons we have that fit monstrous units are the Large weapons we got from the underwater mission- the large heavy harpoon gun and the large torpedo launcher. The large heavy harpoon gun can be used out of water but it doesn't have as much range.
The only other weapon choice we have for monstrous units is the plasma katana, which can be used by anyone.
No. 1003320 ID: 96c896

Oh I forgot monstrous units can also use the Capture Foam Gun. Probably because it's shaped like a fire extinguisher and doesn't require you to fit your finger in the trigger guard or hold the grip properly with an oversized hand. Like the problems Neumono have with their big mitts!

Actually, put Kayree in reserve for this one. This is as easy a mission as we are likely to get, we should take the chance to give some of our other corgs some combat experience. Yeah she has that skill that lets reserves level too, but they'll have less opportunity to qualify for the cool skills. Kayree has no particular close quarters skill anyway.

(Or more accurately, I don't want her to level to 5 and be up for retirement quite yet. Eilie needs to retire with her <3)

With better disthread info, it's easy enough to switch the BPG between Yiann and Baetriss. Gives her two high power guns, but she can use the sniper to conserve health, plus she has a talent for overwatch with it.

I just thought of a good use for the wand...
We could analyze and deconstruct it, then utilize it in purpose built golems, traps, mechanisms, and even running water for our denizens.
We could even go as far as engraving it onto our heart next time we gain a layer.

Water is very important for us to maintain life in the dungeon, and the ability to easily move it around would be invaluable.
No. 1003117 ID: b80c0a

Oh, wow, yeah! Using the wand in crafting would be amazing! It could be used to produce all sorts of hollow or near-hollow structures in a single piece. I am sure that Deem can whip up some heat-resistant enchantments to make it useful with whatever molten material it is being used on. It might also make weird alloys that would normally be difficult to keep mixed. I wonder if it can directly purify materials...

I guess it all depends upon the particulars of its manipulation faculties. Even if it isn't much use as-is, having it as an example might help with making a more sophisticated replacement.
No. 1003163 ID: afa6f6

The Waterbearer Wand, Critter Whistle, And Glossid all seem useful.
Deem could probably make a potion sprayer by herself if she wanted to, and it wouldnt even have to be magical, so we could hold off on that.

I do want to point out, since its being brought up a lot, That the Critter Whistle has uses other than capturing monsters for the Dungeon. It can be used for hunting too, so we can get food and potion or artifact ingredients. Or we could just use it to lure dangerous or annoying monsters away from the dungeon.
No. 1003169 ID: 9ffe87

Honestly, I initially thought they were all stupid and pointless tbh, but I think the statement about hauling water sort of distracted from the real potential of the wand. With this sort of outside the box thinking it could actually end up insanely useful, although if used for metallurgy Hin may have to relearn/adapt a decent portion of her smithing in order to utilize the wand.

this quest is (obviously) nsfw. it contains clothing damage, sex, and ogres.

the mysterious Sexy Dungeon has stood undefeated for eons, tempting adventurers with bottomless stores of earthly wealth and the seductive allure of carnal pleasures, but never has a lucky soul managed to reach the bottom level of the labyrinth. all challengers to the earthen tunnels of lust have been struck low and surrendered themselves to the advances of the dungeon sentries.

one such group of intrepid explorers enters the dungeon now, in search of treasure, glory in battle, or perhaps something more... intimate in nature...

Keimi bounds up to a spot on the mountainside and waves excitedly.
"I found it! Look!" she says, gesturing at a small opening in the rock face.
"Found what?" I ask, trudging up the hill. "The last time I went along on an adventure with you, I almost died fighting a giant monster."

Keimi rolls her eyes.
"Firstly, you did not almost die. You were only bashed up a little bit. Secondly, you did not fight a giant monster, according to those documents they forced us to sign," she says, wagging her finger. "Anyway, this leads to a cavity that was shown on the sensor scans of a cavern that, according to the documents that my mom brought home that she definitely wasn't supposed to that I was definitely not supposed to look at; runs adjacent to the area related to those creatures we definitely weren't supposed to know about!"

"This is a lot of layer of not supposing. Am I not supposed to get in deep shit if we get caught?" I ask, stopping to catch my breath.
Keimi ponders for a moment.
"No worries. We definitely won't get in trouble."


"As long as we don't get caught."

It might not be a good idea to keep playing. If you lose track of time, then it'll be night. That's when all of the doors lock and Benny comes out to hunt. You don't want to be stuck in here all night!

Sure is. Maybe everything actually has a mind of its own, but can't express it without whatever this black goop is.

You shouldn't keep playing. Time gets nebulous when you play games and Benny comes out at night. If you were to do nothing else here, then maybe, but if you're to take Kab's deal, just take the novelty for what it was - fun, but temporary. If you leave the place standing, maybe you can come back for another go, later.

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.

You jump down with a heavy thud, and work quickly. There’s only one easy exit- but there’s a pile of boxes near it, and they can be shoved aside to make a makeshift barricade- then climbed up to perch safely above. It’s only a matter of waiting for the man to fully regenerate, and then you can try to propose some kind of working relationship. It’s better than executing someone in their sleep, at least.

About five minutes later, the quiet pops of joints and knitting flesh go quiet. The man has almost completely scabbed over with dense, pale chitin- it’s covered his face entirely. He wakes with a muffled grunt- and while he sounds irritated, he doesn’t seem particularly alarmed. He reaches aside for a sharp knife, made of a short piece of sharpened rebar- and thrusts it into his face, shattering the keratin shell. He pulls at it with his hands, prying apart enough to leave his eyes and mouth exposed, before searching around for his clothes.
You allow it, considering you don’t particularly feel like staring at armored man-ass, before clearing your throat and steadying your weapon.

As he looks up, his response is rather muted.
>”Oh. Surprising. Thought you would be dispatched by now.”

“Not everyone is as kill-crazy as you are. I’ve met up with the First Mate- we have plans to save this ship. Save everyone! We can put the engines back together- maybe even revive the Chief Engineer to help!”

He remains placid. His eyes scan the room, clearly trying to assess retaliation, but there aren’t many avenues for someone on the wrong end of a high-ground situation.

He gestures towards the fire- and you nod. He steps over into the light, seating himself, crosslegged. He idly examines his own body as you discuss, identifying just what’s changed in order to better heal him.

“You’re the only person on board with real combat experience, and I understand the engineering wing is packed full of hungry bugs. You working with everyone is our best shot to get in there and fix the engines.”

His expression is somewhere between annoyance and pity. He actually manages some incensed inflection to his voice.
>”Fix the engines. Fix the engines. You keep using that phrase and I become more and more convinced you do not know what you are talking about. There is nothing to fix. There was no- I don’t know what story the AI has fed you, but this is not a minor malfunction. If it were, we would not be in this situation. I would not be forced to cull those who will not survive on the planet’s surface in cruel mercy, in the hopes that the strongest of us will live. The primary engine is gone.
>”It is wreckage. A gaping hole. I believe we may have been hit with some sort of warhead.”

He pauses, staring up at you, past the barrel of the gun. If he has any fear you’ll pull the trigger, it doesn’t show in the slightest.
>”But you are clearly tougher than I assumed- and I apologize for my assumption. I am a killer, but I do not revel in the fact. It is a raw necessity of our situation. Time pressure. Lack of options. But- consider this. I’m engaged in what I am because the AI is... malfunctioning. Driven by logic that cannot be satisfied. Everyone cannot be saved.”

What's the point of launching the escape pods early? If we can get a fuel source, the secondary engines will be good enough to keep the orbit stable, and we can repair the ship enough to attempt a landing with them if we stockpile enough fuel as well. We don't NEED the primary engine.
No. 1002287 ID: 673c1d

I don't trust him. He's already convinced of his course of action (leave ship no matter how many he has to kill), and he doesn't really need you - just your firearm. If he's lying and we ever get within arm's reach of him, we're toast.

If we're reluctant to kill him, we could just send him to go collect the Chief Medical Officer and Engineer and bring them to us - we need their help anyway, right? Tell him about the Engineer's current status, then send him to bring back the Engineer and a spare person (alive, of course). Hopefully that solves one of our problems, and even if he plans to betray you, he'll need to keep you alive until he gets back with the Engineer's stack.

Ask him to humor us in trying to fix things. Put all the killing on hold and collect the important people first. Maybe we can prepare some kind of killswitch for the AI (does our new captain have an override for the escape pods?) so that if we're down to, say, 30 minutes and it doesn't look like we can fix up any kind of thrusters, he can kill the AI and launch with whoever's left. He's going to need to collect those people anyway, why not focus on that next instead of randomly killing whoever he can find?

Or does he have a better idea? What's his new plan?
No. 1002292 ID: 96c896

The regular Engineer is fine. The Chief Engineer is the one with the stack we need to retrieve, and right now we don't know if it's possible to get it. The bubble belt doesn't have enough time left on it.

Damn, now that I think about, I really wish I hadn’t packed my utility belt. I should’ve just left it out for after I was ready to move out of this apartment…! Maybe if I find a spare [b]utility belt[b] on my way through the city, I could actually have an inventory to manage… something to keep in mind.

This jacket doesn’t have pockets, and the pockets on my pants can only hold a couple small items at a time: my keys and wallet and a spare magazine of ammo; my hands barely fit as is! I can also only tuck one item in my waistband at a time, and right now that item is gonna have to be the gun.

The flashlight is a gift from one of Mylia’s friends that has a special kind of aether battery inside, I think he actually custom made it? It won’t run out of juice for a long time and is sturdy enough that it’ll actually weather a fairly strong beating. The problem is that I can’t remove the battery without, again, specialized tools. No hiding gun parts inside it, unfortunately.

Trying to disassemble a gun to hide it isn’t a bad idea though for future endeavors, I’ll try to remember that one. I’d probably need to wrap the pieces in something so that gun oil doesn’t get everywhere.

Also, I can take off the aether sheathe without specialized tools, thankfully. I guess that leads to the final consideration…

Do I take the High Road and pass by the peace officers, or the Low Road and risk the gangs?

Normally, the peace officers are actually pretty laid back, but with the military build-up on the border outside the city and the State ordered curfew (thankfully, it ends every morning at 7), they’re stretched thin and on edge these days.

The gangs are taking advantage, of course, and while there has always been organized crime here (according to Mylia), the past few months… something has changed. They used to be “respectable businessmen”, the kind of mobsters with suits and ties and that actually helped the community in some ways. Nowadays there are mobs and beatings in some places, and even shootings. They do leave humans alone, but that makes me feel even less at ease for some reason…

… also, those are the actual street names. Its not called the “High Road” because the peace officers are super morally praiseworthy or something.

I'd take the high road. Just go though casually and stay relaxed. They won't search you unless you're going though a check point or if you look suspicious enough, and being in a panic would make you suspicious. If they do search you, just be polite. If they find the gun, say it was a mistake or habit.

Madelrada sa Kimbery, That Which Wears Down The Mountains, is bored.

It's been years since she's seen any action remotely worthy of her title as one of the Eight Masterful Demon Generals. Even if she had a legitimate reason to go out and conquer something, the Contagion isn't really over yet. Unnecessary risk has never been her nature. So, she's going to stay home, but she's not going to stay idle. Time for some training exercises. How about an amphibious assault scenario? Lots of ways to keep that interesting by mixing in different unit types.

This is an Exalted second edition game, basically a tournament-arc excuse plot for open playtesting on my attempt to finish what the Scroll of Errata started. Several old sticking points in the combat rules have already been reworked, and more changes are planned, but first the basic threat-assessment scale needs recalibration, especially with regard to grappling.

Baidak are living humanoids with the mentality of automata, created by one of Madelrada's own component souls to fight like chess pieces. They're fearless and reasonably intelligent, but almost completely incapable of creativity or individual initiative beyond the scope of their explicit orders. In this context, they'll follow appropriate suggestions from anybody.

Mermaid-like demjen and their animated-ore minions will also listen to advice from the audience, but have more personality. Roleplaying a specific individual in more detail, or shouting advice at the group as a whole, are both acceptable approaches.

If you've got somebody else all ready to jump in, post a description and character sheet for final approval. I'd rather keep this thread focused on the visible scenery and events, but iterative character creation feedback can happen in the discussion thread ( https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/120347.html ), or the houserule doc has a link to a Discord server for deeper analysis of the mechanics.

Demjen send a squad of Chalcothete under whatever the demon-realm equivalent of a white flag is in order to negotiate a truce and terms of surrender, as per the Unquestionable's orders. Clearly the most certain way to ensure her will is carried out and a single force wins without deliberate or accidental killing is for Scathra to willingly concede. Rolling for Red Team to gather/present appropriate bribes to the puppy-minded island. Not sure what the tummy-rubs and peanut butter equivalents are here, but I assume such knowledge could be found IC.
No. 1001907 ID: f57349

"Deliberate killing" in the sense of excessive force against soft targets, or continuing to attack someone already incapacitated or otherwise neutralized. "No accidental killing" was emphatically not part of the decree.

If red team all surrenders, they'll be removed from the field and teal team wins by default no more than three days later. The baidak aren't very interested in negotiating for anything else, and you'd probably have to get past them - either sailing or marching through lightning range out in the open, or searching for a sneaky route underground or above the cliff - to even attempt delivery of a bribe to the actual behemoth-manse.

>peanut butter equivalents

Meat. Enough to be worth losing the exercise would probably be more than could fit in the cargo hold all at once, and this is a sparsely populated area on the outermost layer, so you don't know offhand where the nearest market which has that much for sale even is. If it's more than five or six hundred miles, Whirligig can't safely get there and back inside three days.

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…

So let's assume this demon is telling the truth: You're not in a simulation. It can speak into your head, but isn't creating for the mental images your getting. You just react too strong and undisciplined to raw stimuli.

You're a psychic, untrained and sensitive. You're the one creating the images in your head, most likely inspired by your captivity and breeding urges. But this means you are capable.

You're already building a form into it. Next, try imagining this big holy stick or water gun you can wield when it feels too close. After that, see how much you are able to control its "movements".
Remember: you are not the only one who would get hurt if this thing gets out.
