Well regardless, we're a special case. I wonder if we can find other Viriskon and investigate what happened...

Well, let's ask if there are any other repairs that can be done before we get back into the fluid interface.

While you don't quite remember everything, you recall memories of being squished on the floor and also being scooped into a bucket and bring up your concerns of the ship's gravity,

"What can I do without my vessel? Even then I think this ship's gravity is too strong for me."

"Really? That can't be right, this is GSG. It's likely you were just extremely weak on account of being in zero g for so long, not to mention the lack of food and the little amount of heat you had retained. Here, I can return your shell to you and we can test it-"

>>1004367

"Wait, are there any other repairs you can do?"

The doctor takes a look at your core for a hot second and shakes their head, "I'm afraid not, like I said, those implants aren't standard issue. I couldn't fix them even if I knew what they were used for."

Doctor D throws a lever, emptying out the container next to you and returning your body to your core. Moving it around a little, you find that it's a lot easier to maneuver than before.

As you think about reforming you realize you can make your body into almost anything you'd like... under a few limitations.

1. Two Legs - You can't stand on two legs, it feels awkward for you to do and trying to stand up tall is difficult on account of having no bones, being a quadruped suits you best.

2. Six Eyes - You have six eyes, no more, no less, but you put them anywhere on your body, or if you're really inclined you can hide some of them.

3. Size - You're working with a limited amount of goo here, you can't make yourself any bigger than you already are, if you're really willing to leave behind material you could become smaller if you're set on that being a good idea.

4. Color - You can't change your color (yet).

Other than that. Feel free to post images of suggestions, or you could just stay with the form you've already got. (Don't get too complex on me, I'm gonna have to draw this a lot)

>Being a quadruped suits you best
If you have to, but why use legs at all? Go for a snake-shape - eschew limbs (unless you need them for specific tasks). After all, your patrons dubbed you 'Creator Serpent'. Perhaps you should take a cue from that!

And of course, you're not really locked to a shape at all, are you? If something is too tedious to maintain you can just default to a simple (to draw) baseline.

Guess we'll have to visit someone who specializes in implants and/or circuitry.

>change body?
Nah. It's tempting to try to get 360-degree vision though... Maybe take two of our six eyes and put them to the sides? Four eyes in front means better resolution than two for whatever we're looking at, right?

Oh, now that we have memory, ask what food you can eat. Or heck, ask for like, a book on Viriskon or something.

Well you got the four legs thing down, but trying to do a torso above that is just too much. You're not really sure how you would've handled people asking you questions about the door knockers on your chest anyway. It's for the best that this form didn't work out.

Not a bad idea! Your eyes don't have pupils so they can't exactly change where they're looking without you moving them around. Having a pair on the sides of your head is pretty handy. You can even look at the infographic the doctor has for you without turning your head-

"So, I ate my own implants? What exactly do I eat? Do you have a book on this stuff?"

"A book? No, not physically at least. All that information is stored up in here, the robot would tap the side of their head. "I'm glad you asked that though because there was some important information I needed to share."

"Your species is what's known as a lithovore. Your species consumes metallic compounds for food, the healthiest being iron and titanium. That's why when you were starving in space your core began to eat the metallic parts of your implants. Additionally you need to keep your core warm to stay alive. The internal body temperature of your shell is incredibly high- after I heated it up. It is capable of absorbing and retaining heat extremely well, but I recommend you rest near a heat source for at least eight hours each day. Don't let yourself heat up too much though, because that can damage your core. The reason you were able to survive in space is after your core was deprived of those two things you went into what's known as 'stasis'. Your body essentially shut down and went into ration mode. I think the heat from the ship woke you up when we got near... but more importantly there is one last thing I must warn you about. The eight element of the periodic table. Oxygen. Many species breathe this gas to stay alive. For you, this is the deadliest element in the universe. Thankfully it's only harmful to you when it is not a compound, so things like CO2 are perfectly safe, but if your core is somehow exposed to oxygen then it will begin to destroy your core. I'm letting you know this because our ship is full of it. Not this room- right now, but don't be too alarmed. I coated your core in a substance known as, well it's just called core gel. Best way to explain it is, like those silica packets organic species put in bags of dried meats. It'll stop and absorb any oxygen that reaches your core- just keep in mind this isn't a perfect fix. As long as you don't get into any danger though it'll be fine. Just make sure to check and replace the gel every six or so months and you should have no problems.

Ok, eat rocks, don't expose core to oxygen, we've got a protective coating so it's not instant death even if that happens somehow through combat and/or loss of goo. Seems simple.

Shall we meet the rest of the crew?

No. 1004461 ID: f8fa51

That makes sense. Oxygen is a well-known oxidiser, after all, and would be deadly to most living things if they weren't metabolising it constantly.

No. 1004474 ID: bb5924

Hmm... An electrical engineer could perhaps repair your implants... But it is unlikely they would know their function before they did so. It could be risky.

A reverse engineer, perhaps a corporate spy or career scavenger could perhaps divine thier function, but you might not want to get tangled up with such folk...

A cybernetics specialist familiar with lithovores could probably do both, but one might be hard to find...

Alternatively, you could just say screw the old implants and get new ones. The scars from the old ones are already on your core, might as well replace them with some that work.

Perhaps a compact heater?
You could eliminate your need to rest in exchange for slightly higher dietary requirements.

That would help you get along in any civilisation, which in turn will help you find out what happened to your ancestor.
>>
No. 1004483 ID: 1b8ca3

If we can find out what metals we consumed from them maybe we can refill(reconstruct) the circuitry of the implants when we eat metals (because shouldn't there be empty space where the metals used to be that we can fill back up with new metal).

"That's all very informative, thank you. I was wondering, was it possible I could met the rest of this ship's crew?"

"Perhaps... if they haven't all left the ship already."

>>1004474

You contemplate different ideas for implants, perhaps with the right materials and the right tools you could make your own.

>>1004483

Unfortunately you can't turn back time. Can't find the identity of a metal that's been consumed, still what parts remain will make getting new ones a bit cheaper.

"There, was actually one last thing I need to do.", the doctor's tone became a bit more troubled. "It won't take too long."

They head over to a terminal and start entering in some things on the keyboard. After a moment they'd produce a tablet and present it to you.

"I know these circumstances were out of your control- but it's protocol. You owe three hundred and eighty eight hours of service to Minerva station."

>You owe three hundred and eighty eight hours of service to Minerva station.
Oh, that’s not too bad. At least it’s only 388 hours.

Which means that “3,088 hours” at the bottom right of the tablet is a glitch and can be ignored, since that’s not what you owe!

Honestly, I was expecting something like this to happen.
3088 hours... assuming you work 12 hours a day that's 258 days. Not terrible, considering you'd be dead otherwise. Wait, that's work hours, not currency, maybe better jobs give more work hours per hour?
Oh, it's Minerva station you owe a debt to, not the ship? Erm. Well, I was hoping to work directly for the people that saved us, but I guess this is fine.

Tell them you have every intention of repaying your debts. Too bad you didn't have health insurance! Should you go talk to someone on the station regarding employment? If you don't get placed on their ship, then you'll have to say goodbye when they leave.

"If I could, I would like to help out on this ship, even if the circumstances are a bit in... bad form."

"I'm aware, perhaps we could talk this over and sort this out. You'd have to talk with the captain if you want to work on our ship, but they're currently in a meeting... why don't I show you around?"

The two of you would exit the office, passing through a small airlock, the doctor contemplated refilling the room with oxygen, though considering you may still need medical help they decide to keep it how it is. After the airlock circulates the doors open. Immediately waiting on the other side was a figure in a helmet.

"Ah- captain, back already?"

"Yes, I need to talk with about something D0C."

The doctor turns to you, "This should take just a moment- but uh,"

"-feel free to take a look around."

While the two converse there's already a few things of note around you, through an open door the doctor's assistant would be speaking with someone lying in a hospital bed. And just across the room was a hologram sweeping the floor.

I don't think we own that space rock... It's just a rock, anyway. Considering we were starving out there the rocks must not have been metallic so it's not even good for food.
Also we shouldn't be able to remember it!

Saying hi to the hologram seems fine though. Are they part of the ship? Or an independent, hired AI?

"Uh, hi. I'm Kiocoatl. ...do you have any rocks?"

"Hello! I'm sweeping. Rala is currently shopping at the station for supplies. I will add 'rocks'. To the list."

"Wait, maybe. Add titanium specifically. Not rocks."

"Oh, okay!"
The hologram's face displays a buffering symbol for a brief moment.

"Noted."

”Yeah! It’d be fun to talk with someone new, but I’ve got more sweeping to do.” With a determined look the hologram began to resume sweeping the floors of dust.

As the hologram walks off you decided to explore the corridor, but before you’re able to walk off the captain puts away his communicator and calls for your attention,

”Hey kid, we’ve got some business to attend to…Minerva wants to see you.”

“Oh- that sounds important, do we need to leave now?”

Welcome to the skill stars! Each constellation of Fetacivs has many stars locked away from you at the moment, but with each lock opened you gain access to new powers, you can only branch out to skills that are adjacent to the skills you have unlocked. There are also four types of locks.

Bronze - The easiest to open, by using your abilities you will naturally begin to hone your powers into new sects and advance your capabilities. Rediscovering memories will also get you back onto branches currently locked off to you.

Silver - Slightly tougher than the former, you will need to get creative with how you use your abilities to discover how to branch out further.

Gold - Unlike the previous locks a trainer is required to learn how these powerful arts can be performed. Trainers may also be able to advance the power of other abilities.

Diamond - Only after every skill in a constellation has been mastered may you progress to the ultimate power. These will require you to seek out extraordinary people to learn them.



|Current Skills|

Telepathy: That broken link tied to your core had something to do with this… perhaps you can still use it to mentally converse with others who are close enough.

Search Memory: You have a perfect recollection- of the few fragmented memories you have.

Energy Sense: See the flow of energy in the universe, great for finding out why something isn’t working. The types of energy you can sense are non-specific. Get creative!

Emotion Reading: You’re more aware of people’s emotions, some in cases more aware about them than they are.

Telekinesis: Reliable telekinesis, without it you’d just be a puddle.

>>1011658
You focus in further on the constellation of facooisk, may it's insight guide your way.

Search Memory: Viriskon scholars are often living libraries, capable of perfectly recalling memories stored within their core.

Memory View: View the memories of others, those who are taught this skill are expected to take a full course in ethics beforehand.

Lucid Dream: Enter your own dreams and scour your mind for your deepest thoughts and desires, a look into your own subconscious. Those more in tune with facooisk can dive into the dreams of others.

Vault Memory: Trap a memory so that it can not be accessed. The great Roschooa often uses this ability on others, their library is filled with many bubbles of thoughts.

Erase Memory: Destroy a memory permanently. Few ever had the nerve to do it.

Search Memory sounds useful, you try to remember your favorite meal… it wasn’t of titanium or iron, it was grander than that, gold. Delicious gold, adorned with gemstones, your hunger grows stronger just thinking of it, but it wasn’t this delicacy that made this memory so fond, it was sharing it- sharing it with… with… you can’t remember. Their formless shapes shift about yet nothing comes together all you feel is the sadness from the empty spaces left behind.

Hmm, so the grey constellation is actually the black one, and white doesn't have a constellation(since it's the moon) but allows us to branch out into ones we didn't pick at all. Also we got the starting perks of orange, red, and blue for free despite not being attuned to them. Likely thanks to white.
Hmm, White's downside says we can't master other branches, does that mean we can only unlock diamond abilities on Black and Cyan?

Tell them you remember your favorite food. Gold and gemstones! Also you had a loved one, but you don't remember anything about them.
Also try using Telepathy to send a test message, which is "Testing testing, can you hear me?"

A Jack of all trades is master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one. White seemed to be a good choice. Lucid dreaming might help us discover who we were but for now there’s not much we can do. Not like we have the means to chase after them even if we do remember.

I’d say test your telepathy on the hard light hologram and the… we’ll probably best not the captain, we should ask them first. But the robit and the hard light? Seems useful to find out.

Also see if we can pick up the hard light broom with our mind, that’d be pretty sweet. It’s supposed to be really light and fragile right? I’m imagining non Newtonian aerogel.

You will be able to unlock all the stars you can see, eventually, but your potential will not be as great as those more focused to one path. By the time you’re able to erase memories others on that path will be able to see into the future, something you may never be able to do.

That’s no moon, it’s a star! A white dwarf. It’s very important to your people because it’s the star of your home planet… a planet you can't remember.

You finally open your eyes and try to tell the captain about what you learned, but he’s nowhere to be seen. How long were you spacing out?

It’s probably not best to try telepathy on him anyway, that’s not really a good opener for someone you’ve just met. You’re not even sure it’d work on artificial life anyway, maybe you could test that. Actually you’re not even sure if the captain’s a robot or not, you don’t know what he is.

Maybe the hologram would be worth a shot. Worst thing that could happen is that it fails.

You focus on your core and channel the link inside you. For something you’re just relearning this feels very natural, it’s as simple as connecting strings.

This isn't too bad, there's nothing keeping you from moving your body towards your destination while you're connected! Introduce yourself and maybe chat a bit with them. Do they know any interesting places on the station? Oh, you might want to get directions since the captain is no longer around to guide you.

seven of them.
I guess while you're in there, see if you can search their memory with your Search Memory power? If it pairs with telepathy this could be very potent.
