>We’re over capacity for monsters we can safely keep contained in our Lair and we’re risking a break out by trying to capture our current opponents

We should ask if we can eat the snake and kite kaiju later, I'm sure the scientists got enough research off of them for us to get rid of them for a little bit of exp.

> MINIBOSS - [FRQ] AND HER MINIONS
You think of the puppies, those poor puppies from the orphanage that are now most definitely displaced due to the Kaiju uprising in the ACTIVITY ARCADIA. You think of your teammates who fought huge monsters without you, of the government who will probably be pissed at you. And you get angry.

Complaining about them breaking your near perfect record of defending the city doesn't accomplish anything, but it will make you feel good to take it out on these Kaiju that just… won't… die. So you do.

You kick the CENTIMINION into the wall, knocking it out and disturbing enough rocks to block the exit path.

You: BRING IT BUG!
FRQ: . -.--
You: YOUR SCRATCHES MEAN NOTHING TO ME!!!!
You: … Note to self, check out if that's morse code later.
You: Also figure out how the FUCK a Kaiju could learn morse code.

> MINIBOSS - FIGHT COMPLETE
You become engrossed in an absolutely grueling fight. You're quickly knocked out of your suited form after a particularly nasty bite, but the adrenaline fueling through your body lets you shrug off the damage. It's incredibly difficult to keep the FALSE RIGHT QUEEN in place and so you do the only thing you can think of to keep it here. You let it think that it's winning, you let it hit you some more, and it works.

Even in your adrenaline filled state you can tell that moving stings, you ache all over. The arena looks like the bloodiest boxing ring you've ever seen, blood caking the floor and streaking from your body from visceral jagged gashes that cover your arms, legs, and one stray shot at your belly.

You've lost [3 HEALTH]
- It hurts to move
- Your body is covered in many visible wounds


But the great news is that after all of the PAIN, and after all of the BLOOD LOSS, the FALSE RIGHT QUEEN isn't looking so hot either. It doesn't have enough energy to escape, and although it's locked down tight, preventing you from performing a FINISHING BLOW, it' lost most of its mobility out of sheer exhaustion.

You transform once more, rolling a middling [4], but it's enough. You eat one of the crispy Kaiju and get to work tying the FALSE RIGHT QUEEN into a knotted ball. It won't be able to untangle itself without some choice amputation or the assistance of something REALLY BIG. You gather up the remaining CENTIMINIONS and do the same to them, bundling the living ones into a ball and tossing the dead ones into a corner.

And then, only after you confirm that the eggs aren't hatching, and that there's no surprises remaining, do you collapse to the ground, de-transform, and check back in with your squad.

Comms: ABOUT DAMN TIME, YOU BETTER-
You: Stop.
You: Come to my coordinates.
Comms: WE WERE ALREADY-
You: Less yelling, migraine
Sponge: Uh, you alright there?
You: Oh, you know, just took down a nest of centipede monsters
You: CAPTURED a thing that was breeding Kaiju under the city
You: Also CAPTURED a bunch of Minion sized Kaiju
You: Bleeding out on the floor
You: Oh, and there's a bunch of BODIES that probably need to be studied
You: and EGGS, did I mention EGGS?!?!
You: And goddess knows what else
Sponge: Holy shit this cavern is massive!


You tilt your head slightly to the side, only to see Sponge/Josephine and your guards descending down a path right next to the EGGS. You let out a groan and they rush over to you.

Sponge: Man down, man down!
You: It's just blood, man
You: Gimme a transfusion or something later
Sponge: There is literally more blood here than is physically kept inside of a normal body!!!
You: Quieter, migraine time.
Guard: Definitely not going to be enough room at the base for all this
You: Just shove the CENTIMINIONS in some jail cells with foam or whatever
You: They're weak as shit
Guard: But then there's all the Kellpo and the two weird things we fought
You: Mmmm can we pretend we're talking about hot stapler-men
Guard: These "Hot Stapler Men" did some real damage with their LONG LEGS
Sponge: Don't forget the WEIRD BULBOUS BODIES
You: Ew, fantasy ruined
Sponge: But seriously, we're beyond capacity here
You: Wow, sounds like a great problem for the government to deal with
You: All the Kaiju they could ever want!
You: Maybe they'll invest in their own storage space instead of pretending it's a reward for me
Comms: Definitely a concussion.


You let out a groan and sit up just as some medics round the corner with a stretcher. You could probably fake it just a bit longer till you get home if you needed to, but you're just so tired. You take the offered seat and ride the stretcher up until you can hear the sound two kin in a heated debate, it… must be an adoring fan and Phyllis!!! Here to see you after you saved the day! You can't lay on this stretcher now, letting them know their HERO is weak. You try to sit up but are lightly pushed down.

Medic: Concussion.
Medic: Stay down please.


You don't FEEL like you have one, but you feel like you could probably transform again if you really need to. The only frustrating part is that just your body and mind have been pushed to their limit.

A, there is literally no benefit to going to sleep right now, you just don't get to hear the conversation.

Forget about it being middling, just be happy you finally rolled higher than a 2!

>>1054177

Most of it probably belongs to the kaiju. Or if it is your blood, then apparently superpowers give you more blood for some strange reason.

Now I wanna know what they fought against. And don’t worry about the damages, we can donate some money to fix it up.

>you can hear the sound two kin in a heated debate, it…must be an adoring fan and Phyllis!!!
Doubtful it’s a fan. It’s probably one of the higher ups wanting to chew you out for running off on your own and Phyllis is trying to stop them.

>you feel like you could probably transform again if you really need to.

You let out a groan as the medic pushes you lightly but firmly down, you stop resisting their efforts and shut your eyes for a moment, focusing on the conversation.

Phyllis: -ore casualties if she didn't-
???: She's completely out of line!
???: We don't pay her to just let her go AWOL
Phyllis: You're missing the point, things would have been WORSE if she didn-
???: Didn't what? Follow another one of her INSANE HUNCHES?
Phyllis: You mean the same ones that let her pinpoint Kaiju with surgical precision?
???: It's either a case of complete randomness
???: OR, she's the one who BRINGS the THINGS here

> CONCRETE JUNGLE - ABANDONED POWER STATION EXTERIOR
You don't open your eyes as you feel the warmth of the sun on your flesh and metal head. The two are silent for a moment, before you hear Phyllis's smug response.

Phyllis: You were saying
???: Uh... that's a lot of blood
Phyllis: She's not like you, never has been
Phyllis: This isn't about capital interests, investments, or the like
Phyllis: She SACRIFICES for us
Phyllis: Imagine if the GUARDS went in when the things in there left her like THAT
Phyllis: It'd be like the Midland Insurgencies all over again
Phyllis: We'd be lucky to get even ONE survivor, AGAIN!
???: ...
???: It's still not her call on where to send her guards
Phyllis: And yet her direction WORKED and managed to give us such good PR
???: That's OUR job, not yours are you trying to-
Phyllis: Fuck off Knee, you couldn't pay me to take your job
Phyllis: I've rejected the position dozens of times anyway
???: And yet you're somehow still hanging around…


You open your eyes a peek and spot the form of that same very angry turtle in a snazzy military outfit that you remember seeing shout at Phyllis before. His name is WAKE KNEE, and while you've never heard what his actual rank was, you imagine that he's significantly high up the chain if he's able to treat Phyllis like this.

Phyllis: You're not going to be able to strong arm her this times
Knee: Pfff, as if, we'll just offer the minimum reward to grease things as normal
Phyllis: You might want to rethink that
Phyllis: he's been not so quietly simmering on your self-serving "rewards"
Phyllis: Or, you know, do, and I can certainly let some parties know about-
Knee: You wouldn't!
Phyllis: I may not, however there are plenty of Kin who would
Phyllis: Whom I'm sure you know well enough!
Knee: God you're such a bitch Phyllis
Knee: I liked you better when you were a recruit
Phyllis: I liked me better back then too...


You're not able to hear the rest of the conversation as you feel yourself actually start to fall asleep. You wonder just exactly what Phyllis did in the past, and how she'd wield this much influence.

You're put in an ambulance and driven back to the lair, where you can feel the fatigue leave your body, the mission is finally over.

> ??? - [PAZURU] THE HISTORIC PARASITE
You realize that it's not that the fatigue is leaving your body, but it's you. You find yourself in that DARK SPACE again, this time you appear right in front of [PAZURU] who is eyeing you with incredulity.

[PAZURU]: Welcome back, you statistical [ANOMALY]
You: I am pretty anomalous, thanks
[PAZURU]: Actually taking steps towards helping [ME] is appreciated as well
[PAZURU]: But I see that you continue to [SACRIFICE] yourself
[PAZURU]: One such as yourself should consider getting [AID]
You: I'm workin on it geez
[PAZURU]: I [HOPE] you do, before it's too [LATE]…


Something... feels different this time, something's off about [PAZURU], like she's been caught off guard, or maybe it's the space, or maybe it's you. Either way, you feel like maybe she likes you a bit more.

What do you do?
>>
No. 1054571 ID: d05352

Ask about what cycles are, and that you saw someone at the bookstore holding a book about them, describe what bookstore owner looks like too, and the place's name. Pazuru might know. Weve been meaning to ask about cycles.

Also, let her know you found a cat body during that mission that the queen took the life out of, and if she wants it, we can see about one of our friends getting her that one when the scientists study the bodies... assuming she can use that one as a body (this one: >>1053175) might not be able to, but who knows, maybe magic will allow her to take that cat body despite its current state

Note to self: give Phyllis the perfect gift, she deserves it after speaking for us.
>>
No. 1054575 ID: 629f2e

Okay, hear me out. Pazuru comes from LUST QUEST, right? That means she's probably one horny cat.

Have you considered soliciting Pazuru for funky magic void sex? Give it a try.

As for questions, I've got two.

1: Should we actually be calling you "Puzzle"?
2: Is there any way we can talk to you outside of you reaching out to us after every mission?

Ask Pazuru why she seems so surprised? Was she not expecting us to beat that centipede kaiju?

>One such as yourself should consider getting [AID]
Definitely need to do the Arcane Focus Creation to teach Saba and Josephine.

And if she's willing, we could politely ask Pazuru for aid. She might be able to teach us another technique.

There were a lot of moments where we could've used Telekinesis to make the previous fight a little easier for us. But we couldn't do any of that since a bunch of people insisted on pointlessly giving away that power!

>>1054569
>get yourself some aid before it's too late
It's like Pazuru said before, we're not alone, we have [CONFIDANTS]. And since she's one of them, let's ask if she can aid us.

Then ask Pazuru if there's some sort of significance to us beating the centipede? She seems surprised that we did that.
>>
No. 1054607 ID: e51896

I think she's implying when she tells us about getting aid, she means "hey, give me a body already so I can [AID] you." I think that's the only real way she can aid us right now.

No. 1054608 ID: 36784c

>>1054607
Having a body isn't the only way she can aid us. Remember: She can teach us magic, as stated here: >>1043732 . That's another type of aid she can provide, until she gets a body.

Here's something to ask: Someone told us we'd need to go to the town of [LYST] after we create our Arcane Focus. Ask Pazuru if there's any kind of dangers to worry about in the town of [LYST] that would interfere with our attempts to use magic?

I'm sure that teaching Josephine magic would help with creating a body for her, since she told us to focus on getting Josephine's help for that.

You float over, cross your legs, and invite [PAZURU] into your lap. The sensation when she touches your ethereal body is somewhat reminiscent of the feeling of your leg falling asleep. She feels tingly, vague, and like you need to exert more pressure than normal to actually grasp her. You can't really hear her purr either, but you can feel the vibrations ever so slightly.

You: I'll probably be stuck in the hospital for a bit, I can do both!

You exaggeratedly roll your eyes at her, she's so tsun, you, with your many years of sex training and body language reading can totally tell that she's enjoying the attention. Maybe all the isolation has gotten to her and she just needs that extra push! But then again, learning magic could be really useful, but you get the feeling that you probably won't be able to reach her until the end of the next mission if you ask.

-We already won't have much in the way of spare time during this rest period to practice, given that we have SO MUCH damage to heal up from.

>>
No. 1054880 ID: e51896

(edited)

I'm going with A mainly for time managing reasons, and to have Pazuru follow us along to help.

After getting hurt the previous two missions, with this one having us lose three points, and Pazuru saying things are going to get worse during one of our previous meetings with her, I don't think the Health penalty just for magic is a good idea. Especially since we already lost four out of eight health, with resting only giving us two health back during downtime, and we already got superpowers that we're already leveling up.

Also, with the limited amount of downtime we have in mind, I think it might be better to let our friends learn magic instead so that we'll have more firepower on our side in battle instead of having magic for ourself that we'd have to spend some downtime training when we could be doing other stuff with our downtime, like finding Pazuru a body. Plus, remember, we already have Josephine and Saba willing to learn magic to help us in battle. Focusing on giving our friends magic instead of getting ourself irradiated for magic and fighting alone being the only one with powers that we'd have to train should help us better in the long run, especially with us already with growing powers, and nanobots.

overall, Lets focus on leveling our size and nanobots up and not focus on another thing we'll need to level up when we have friends that can train themselves in to help us out.

Lets not try to do everything ourseleves, especially if it means harming ourself to do thme. We have our friends that want to help.

Also, we'll have Pazuru, another ally on our side guiding us. She can help teach us stuff, alert us of danger, and she can help us help her find a suitable body for her. And most importantly, her bluntness, judging, and nagging can lead to some funny moments with Hailey's silly or lewd moments, especially when Hailey is the only one who can hear her..

A.

Better to focus on our already-gained powers, than try to take one rank in everything and then get our collective ass whooped.

Plus. Kitty!

>leveling our size and nanobots up
It's gonna be difficult to level up size because of how advanced it already is and we don't have a specialized trainer to help us with that. And we can't level up nanobots by training, we'd need the scientists to do surgery on us to improve them, as shown here: >>1049504 , which involves dice rolls and paying money to decrease the chances of them messing up and hurting us.

Of course, there are Lair Upgrades that can help with reducing the chance of injury for the upgrading nanobots surgery, as shown here: >>1050780 , but odds are, we'd have to pay for that ourselves, since the higher-ups in the government want to be stingy with things like that.

However, I don't want use money to get that Lair Upgrade yet. I want to donate it to heal the city, and as shown here: >>1046204 , doing that won't use up an action. So we can help heal the city and still get to do another action!

Be nice when she starts providing those "historical facts". She hasn't had anyone to talk to for a long time, so she might do a lot talking.

And, yes, you're going to tell your friends about being able to see Pazuru more often now. Preferably in that room where Phyllis could completely block out anyone listening in.

A) Do not irradiate yourself.
You have an entire R&D team. Incompetent they may be, but they're not the ones who would go out into public spewing radiation everywhere.

Also, you ended up getting a little chonky from eating just one kaiju last time and this time you ate a little more than that. I hope you still have clothes that'll fit!

> ??? - [PAZURU] THE HISTORIC PARASITE
You: I'd like one blather sphinx please!
You: It must be boring not having anykin to talk to!
[PAZURU]: You get used to it after the first eon
[PAZURU]: [SANITY] is truly quite burdensome in that regard
You: Uh, you don't seem insane
[PAZURU]: I told you that I wanted to die in our first meeting
You: Lots of sane people feel that way, have you seen the internet?
[PAZURU]: ... fair point...
[PAZURU]: Guess I can watch the [HAILEY MARY SHOW] for a bit
You: Hell yeah, don't steal my thunder though
[PAZURU]: Me, steal your thunder?
[PAZURU]: Did you forget that only you could see me?
You: Oh right, well... don't let me steal your thunder then!


You watch [PAZURU] roll her eyes at you as a small grin tugs at her lip. And this time, when you abruptly wake up, [PAZURU] is there, sitting on your lap. You look around, to the right of your bed, finding yourself inside of your MEDICAL SEX DUNGEON, hooked up to blood bags, a saline drip, a bedpan, and restraints.

You: Yup, definitely the right choice, I feel so cozy here.
You: Kinda kinky that I'm already tied down though.
Alberta: That's cause otherwise you'd get up and do something else

> MEDICAL SEX DUNGEON - YOUR BED
You turn your head to the other side of the bed, spotting a very disheveled and puffy eyed Alberta.

You: That's cause I'm fiiiiiiiine!
Alberta: You've lost SO much blood man
Alberta: And carved up like a butchered pig!!
Alberta: They're putting you under medical lockdown for [1 DOWNTIME ACTIVITY]
You: Boooooooooo
You: Booooooooooooooooo
You: What about teaching them how to make the [ARCANE FOCUSES]?
Alberta: Hailey, please
You: Ughhh fine
Alberta: Good because otherwise you'd have to do a ton of paperwork
Alberta: The higher ups want to see you too
Alberta: Take your rest when you can get it!
[PAZURU]: Alberta has two bullets inside of her at all times
[PAZURU]: The first was from a firing range training accident
[PAZURU]: The second is to distract her from her skin condition via pleasure
You: *COUGH* WHAT?!?
You: You have a vibrator in you right now?!
Alberta: Did you get another superpower through that concussion?
Alberta: It gave you X-Ray vision, didn't it Hailey.


You get the distinct feeling that you're soon going to know the most intimate details about many of your friends and coworkers. The thought fills you with a [LUSTFUL] feeling, awesome!

You're gonna have to learn to control those outbursts, so that you don’t say those things out loud and in public!

But with these random facts, we might learn something we can use in battle against the kaijus!
