Belief: Sorry sword, we'll get them next time.
I'll head over to the tree and...
STORE a HEALTHY FRUIT
Belief: Hey Sword, you want one? There's plenty enough here for everyone.

I'm considering sitting the next round out but for now I want to collect resources.
Though, quick question, if I sit the round out is my respawn still delayed by the items I have?

Hmm, it would appear that certain people tend to favor certain gods.
I wonder if that's because the gods are trying to get apostles, or rather having their antics constantly on display leads some to have favorites.
Unfortunately, I am still uncertain where I stand with these gods, and will need more time to fully understand them and their personalities.
I hope, however, that I can find a purpose in this game, whether it be as an apostle, or an ambition of my own.
Ambition...

I have a question for all other Karmalings.
What is your ambition?
Kome wished to rewrite the rules of death, Hunger wishes to consume, Donut is going on a holy crusade.
For now, my wish is to see these Karmalings come into their own. As such, they first step of that is recognizing your ambition.
What do you wish for?

I mostly wish to learn how to shape and transform this world, hopefully for the best. To discover and understand it. And to help the people on it with that knowledge.

By the way, can anyone on the suCHESSboard hear this?

If all-powerful bored deities could take criticism, I'd yap more often.

Anyways...
To all remaining players: you have an opportunity to build infrastructure. Make some roads and barricades so we get the drop on future spawning enemies.

Very puzzling. With great questions why elect ignorance? Why forgo skill to deduce truth now? When used properly it's a skill of great worthiness.

What you say of the cycle is without evidence. Quite fortunate. Were that true, what hope exists?

>>1048118
So you're missing a few key pieces. Here.
Per https://questden.org/wiki/Suchesstion
>Every suggester can [SUGGEST] an action to an [NPC] or [AI] that is on the battlefield.
>They will act like a [QUEST PROTAGONIST], but can refuse actions depending on their [PERSONALITY]
He had free will despite what you believed.
Here your side's will is to wipe out kblins. Swrd1's was to earn his sword. His god, [WILD] prohibited doing so via crafting. With violence his path, he would do so by helping one side. Either way he might die. Either way he'd be a pawn of a side. Of course you might question prohibiting crafting though that would put you at odds with one of the ones who ordered you to kill kblins...
Still, should your free will have you follow orders of authority blindly that is your will. Only power over you is the power of words. Draw your own conclusions now that you have facts.



So the battle ends. Suggest you evacuate Swrd1, he does not have to die.

> LOGIC
Question: I assume the limits on the spawn cue are still in effect, despite the round being over? (If not, I'm gonna just pop in, MOVE to the tree in Zone F, and STORE a fruit.)

I would be remiss not to PURCHASE AN UPGRADE, either way. Though I'd hazard a guess that I'm jumping the gun by one update or so.

>>1048448
Hmm. I'm honestly not sure. Perhaps I feel unready to tackle the sorts of questions that would pertain to the cosmic realm directly. Perhaps even trying to practice deductive reasoning in such a space that is primarily governed (in part) by [CHAOS] is... naught but nonsense.

It is what it is. I've just come into existence, and I don't know why I know what I know. Another question that is without an answer, for now, and that's fine; I believe I have all the time in the multiverse to find it, after all. Let my living, unaware self worry about solving on a schedule.

Now, unless you're just being contrary for its own sake, I don't believe either of us has a reason to continue this conversation - not while a [GOD] is asking us to stop, anyway, so at the very least this will be my final word to you for the immediate future. Whatever is unresolved between us can be addressed later; we aren't going anywhere, after all.

>>1048438
Oh, hello! Well, [CURIOSITY] is what drives me. I love looking for answers, though simply pondering the questions might be even more fun! Of course, as I said earlier, my avenues for pursuing either of those are rather limited at the moment; I don't mind simply abiding in the meantime.

> LUST
Meanwhile, a [SMOOCH] is tempting - I have a feeling that such as given by the Goddess of [LUST] is something a bit more than a standard physical act of affection. Maybe it can even be [CURRENCY], like [KARMA] seems to be?

... Ah, what the hey; I don't mind dropping to the bottom of the queue again. I'll stockpile resources while I wait for everyone else to find their niche.

> PEACE
Hmm? I for one thought I was being quite polite, given the circumstances. Although I suppose the standards of a [GOD] of [PEACE] would be understandably higher... assuming that wasn't all directed at the [HOSTILE] Suggestors, of course.

Cor, look at me, engaging a [GOD] in direct conversation. Now that I'm on the bottom of the queue again and have not much better to do but enjoy your company, I'm [CURIOUS]: Which [CONCEPTS] govern the conceptual hierarchy in the multiverse you're visiting from? Of course, you don't have to answer that if you don't want to. I couldn't possibly force an issue against [PEACE] itself, after all.

kblin04 escaped?! No! I must pursue!

The plan was to dig a hole and lure the criminal into it, which doesn’t work very well when they have a ranged weapon. So in the future, I’ll need to have something very worthwhile to lure them into a trap, or have prepared it beforehand.

Or I could simply coordinate with another karmaling and have them push the criminal into the pit. That sounds a lot easier.

Regardless, Donut will dig a TRAP in square H4 that will collapse and flood the hole with water if anyone steps in it. Let’s see you escape THEN!

Also have some art of best guest and her comrades.

Well, if others are willing to step back, I would be excited to take up a spot on the board.

- Free Action: SPAWN in A9 with the [Barricade] in the inventory.
- Free Action: ADVANCE to F1 (due to the lack of movement restrictions this round)
- Full Action: Doors will attempt to pull free and STORE a fresh, [Flexible Branch].
- - "I am sorry for damaging you, if there is something I can [DO] to make up for it, please let me know."
- *Also waves at Swrd1;
- - "Thank you for your help!"

As for ambitions?
I am not sure... perhaps to build? But I will need something to use to defend myself first.

A question for Logic, seeing as he is running this operation;
- "Are we going to be staying here for the kblin counter-assault or will we be MOVEing to a new [MAP]?

> THE MERCHANT ARRIVES
A flash of light fills the entirety of zone C for a few moments before it fades, leaving behind a BEING in a mask, they look humanoid. Their arms are covered in tattoos of various tentacled beasts, and they’ve got a satchel by their feet.

[???]: WELL WELL WELL, LOOK AT THESE CHUMPS
[???]: Hi, I’m [REDACTED]!
[CURIOSITY]: WHAT?! I can't even use my name here!
[CURIOSITY]: Hmm, what about this, I’m here to [SELL YOU STUFF]
[CURIOSITY]: Okay, that works, now I’ll just fudge some things here, mess with a sign there…


The being pulls out a massive neon light sign that reads as [<’S CURIOSITIES]

[CURIOSITY]: I can neither confirm nor deny that my name is in that sign
[CURIOSITY]: But I CAN confirm that I’m here to sell you my CURIOSITIES!
[CURIOSITY]: But what do I have?
[CURIOSITY]: I have EVERYTHING on sale
[CURIOSITY]: Including discounted better reincarnation packages
[CURIOSITY]: Or even TRAVEL PACKAGES if you want to uh…
[CURIOSITY]: Jump ship, though you gotta get one of the [GODS] to take you in
[CURIOSITY]: You just have to tell me what you want and I can get it
[CURIOSITY]: 1 KARMA for anything BASIC
[CURIOSITY]: 1 KARMA for UPGRADES
[CURIOSITY]: 1 KARMA for SPECIFIC MODIFICATIONS
[CURIOSITY]: And cause the other lame brains aren’t listening I’ll be… flexible
[CURIOSITY]: Though the more COMPLEX or OVERPOWERED, the more expensive it’ll be
[CURIOSITY]: I’m here to make MAD PROFITS after all!
[CURIOSITY]: Though I MAY be willing to offer you discounts if you give me some…
[CURIOSITY]: INFORMATION, maybe about your favorite [REDACTED]?
[CURIOSITY]: Hmmm, favorite [REDACTED]? No, What about [NPC’s]
[CURIOSITY]: Ooooh that wasn’t filtered!
[CURIOSITY]: Yeah your favorite [NPCs] from you know what!
[CURIOSITY]: It’s gotta be juicy goss tho, something to make me want to [WATCH] them
[CURIOSITY]: After all, [VOYEURISM] and [SUGGESTION] are [REDACTED]!
[CURIOSITY]: Chaos yer killing me here!
[CURIOSITY]: And I’m a SELLER not A BUYER, I ain’t buying yer goopy twigs
[CURIOSITY]: Yadda yadda, gimme your Karma!

Hmm... Okay. I think... HmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMM- I like [PEACE]. They didn't really leave a strong impression on me, which makes sense given they're [PEACE], but I kinda have a conceptual bias for the guy.

Speaking of...

- Why hello there, [PEACE]. I'm curious; what's your multiverse like, in terms of ruling concepts?

I think it's important that I "submit a ticket" for that, since the answer may determine whether I want to do that "jumping ship" thing you mentioned. After all, a multiverse where [WRATH] or one of its cousins rules and [PEACE] is some twisted [ANATHEMA] wouldn't be any more fun than this one.

How much would "a buff whose potency depends on how many turns I spend in Limbo" cost? Given I've decided I'm partial to non-violence, maybe something defensive or supportive?

Thinking: I wonder if any of these purchases are valid: https://questden.org/kusaba/questarch/res/1002288.html#1002703
If so, I think the majority of us can only buy the ones that cost 1-2 karma points... unless it's possible for one of us were to gift one of our teammates their karma points, or give him gossip which I feel uncomfortable doing right now... Don't need him stalking anyone.

Thinking: I want an INNATE SKILL, but it costs 3 and I only have 2 right now... I think I'll wait until I get another point before I shop, or if I can think of something to gossip about...

Thinking: And I know who that is, that is [STEVE], or as one universe called him, the [TENTACLED IRIS] though that was because those who saw him only saw his mask, and tattoos of tentacles on his arms... but if saying his name is redacted here, maybe it's something I shouldn't know about and should be kept quiet or else I might get struck down by the gods for knowing too much... though the gods are not listening in right now... hmmm...


0Plasm: Thanks [ST]- er... [CURIOSITY], but I think I'll save my points for now... Unless I can think of something to gossip to you about before the UPDATE is over...
0Plasm: I want to get an Innate skill, but last I checked, it was 3 points,
0Plasm: And I don't think I have enough for that yet at 2 Karmas, unless I'm wrong and it's actually 1-2 KARMA points?

And while I would want to wait and see what other people but rather than using up my karma, I do wanna see whether I can do something like this.
Belief: I would like to buy an ability.
Belief: Devilish Temptation: My words, requests, and suggestions are more tempting than usual, NPCs are more inclined to do as I say or take my side.

Full action for Donut: dig another TRAP in H1, but rig it so that setting it off won't collapse the dam in H4 or spring the trap in H4 either.

However, setting off H4 will also set off H1, turning the entire two-square area into a flooded double trap.

[Interdimensional Shielding] Damage Threshold 1/2 Heart (Any attack that deals damage to the user is reduced in power by 1/2 Heart). If a successful attack would normally kill the user, Damage Threshold is increased to 2 Hearts, and this ability is disabled until the user recharges at the Dimensional Anchor or some Place of Power, or after four turns.
Next time, I'm buying a quick strike ability.

I think I will follow suit as well. You can take my 1 Karma too for [ARMOR] that swrd1 can use. Hopefully 2 Karma (in total) will get them a good set.

As for gossip... I'm not sure if I have anything; Or at least nothing that I think would be [FAIR] to offer up.

For my actions I will:
- *Smiles.
-- "Take care now, Swrd1."
- Free Action: ADVANCE to D5 (assuming additional movement is still free, otherwise REPOSITION me to F9)
- Full Action: DO; I will try to WEAVE the longer grass into a [CORD] that I can USE to CRAFT my [FLEXIBLE BRANCH] into a [BOW].

Divulging ambitions? Well, one can be publicly disclosed. Just a minor rule change regarding criminals. Ending coercion so criminals can still elect to join but without being forced. Persuaded with carrots not beaten with sticks. Would not have to be hostile without that issue. Quite FUN being one of the bad guys though. Well, perhaps bad is the wrong word seeing one of your leaders admit genocidal plans...

Oh, since people get to queue queries, have one for the quiet one, [HOPE]. What hope exists for the kblins? Or is it pure genocidal despair with zero hope?

Oh, where I5's tile?

[CURIOUSITY] seems open to dealing in information rather than [KARMA], maybe you can use that to barter.

I also agree that I hope Swrd1 doesn't need to fight anymore.


But that should be their choice, not yours.

((I don't think they can leave, I think it was more like "go somewhere else on the suchessboard"? Maybe to go see kome, if I had to guess. I don't know if it's the same for [NPCS] but [PLAYERS] need to buy a travel package to get out of here, and also a sponsor. Even kblin4 seems to have used some kind of item to get out of here.
If they can actually leave whenever they want, good for them, but I doubt [WILD] will grant them that sword if they do. And they want to get it, so going away is counterproductive to their goals at the moment.))

Coda turns toward swrd1.

"Say, Swordman, I was wondering, how did you get here? You were already here when we arrived. Did you too agreed to some kind of terms of service?"

High risk, high reward? Is this by chance Dimension 88-H?
As for the "gossip" others mention... I'm certain it must be coincidence, unless...
Do these gods frequently take mortal forms within their respective dimensions? If so, it would be possible for some of us to have seen them.
Also, if I'm hearing all this right I can spend 2 karma instead of 1 to make my persuasion idea an innate ability instead of an item?
If so, I would like to make this an innate ability rather than an item.
If that is not an option, make the item a silver pocketwatch.

Move to B7.
Find a suitably sharp stone and... Use the sharp stone on the log and carve a wooden staff/spear haft.

I'd like a boon in the form of [HYGGE BLANKIE] - "For every turn I spend in Limbo, I bank 1 Heart Point; while in Limbo, I can spend 2 banked Heart Points to heal anyone on the map by 1/2 a Heart." It looks like a fluffy security blanket I can wrap around myself for maximum coziness in Limbo, combining the comfort of healing with the reclusiveness of someone who's not interested in getting down and dirty amongst all the action.

I tried to be conservative with its efficiency, but I get the feeling this is still complicated enough to be worth no less than 2 KARMA, while I only have 1. Though I can probably grease the wheels with some hot goss... Well, I had been following a rather interesting tale of one secret agent's [DESIRE] coming into conflict with his own loyalty, the [ANGER] of his beloved, and the veils of [GUILE] and secrets surrounding both of them on all sides, over in Dimension 18-Q. He's a fluffy little mole-kin named NICO GIOVANNA, and I'm sad that I never got to see how his longing for the half-blood princess calling herself MARTH ultimately plays out. I couldn't possibly say who (or what attribute) will win out, or what sort of [CHANGE] that conceptual victory will manifest.

What happens if I eat the fruit now? I don't think it's been confirmed whether we have a Max HP value or not beyond some universal ceiling? Let's find out! Also, I collect some Karma Bug.

Wait, I need 2 Karma to make Damage Threshold an innate ability? @#$%.
I'm not buying a material shield. If I can't get permanent DT from a 1 Karma purchase, I'm saving it up instead.
... Also, can you help me upgrade my dagger? It absorbed karma and a corpse, it should be able to develop something.

I'll carve a Wooden Shield out of the tree's bark with my dagger, then move to E6.

Err, sorry swordman, I think we perceive the world very differently, I wonder what we look like to you... I'd gladly explain what little I know but that would be weird and stressful, so I can't, sorry.
But I can probably give advices I think? You should try to cause change. Big changes are better if I understand correctly. "May your passion incite change."
Maybe you knew that ? That's all I got anyway, good luck, whatever you choose to do!

SVilHQ

>World
Just as suspected there is a world outside of this. Walls are artificial limitations. Ones swrd1 is probably bypassing without issue because he's native. Still say he should flee. Would be best to warn without commanding... perhaps this?
Swrd1, should you stay your life will be risked while those of the blues will not be. Staying here is pointless if you can earn your sword places outside of here.

> [CURIOSITY] Makes sure that only the players can hear the following
Hostile suggestors too? Was a hostile query so probably how that was intended.
Hmm so either way total victory involves genocide. Would stalemate of endless war be better overall?
While consumption does sound bad, we're given no info how severe it is. Given that these supposed gods set up this system instead of getting a full war campaign it may not be that bad. Or perhaps... well, since they may be listening you guys can figure out what the rest is.

Of course with rule 16, quite a huge question is raised.
How could beings that can be sentenced (thus punished) grow powerful enough to endanger worlds?
Or does rule 16 not apply to them at all?
Dimensional refugee is a term that has been used...
[Justice] had a list of what kblin04 did... so supposedly should be sentenced...
What exactly is going on here...?
Have to get further evidence.
