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…

:ScorchSO: Fucking piece of junk!
The side of the ship makes a satisfying crushing noise as Scorch stomps into it, leaving another mark of her boot on the side of it.

:FumeSO: Can you please stop kicking Lizabeth, sis? I’ve told you a million times that it doesn’t help.
Fume looks up from the smoking engine with a rather stern look, but his sister just gives him a big toothy smile.
:ScorchSO: Of course it helps! It makes me feel better, doesn’t it?
She punctuates her sentence by once again stomping into the side of the ship, enlarging the dent even more.
:ScorchSO: So, are you getting this trash heap up in the air anytime soon, brother, or are we stranded on this shithole?
The cybernetic lizard looks down at the engine again…
:FumeSO: Considering how we’re all out of fuel…
…though he has to retreat a bit as it starts coughing a thick smog of smoke.
:FumeSO: And the FTL engine is in two parts, so I’m going to say no. I’ll need a lot of tools and spare parts to fix her up this time, sis.
Scorch gives the ship another kick, much to the dismay of her brother.
:ScorchSO: So… what, we need cash, Fume?
:FumeSO: And lots of it, Scorch.

Leaving the small space port, the two siblings find themselves on the neon lit streets of New Verdante, a colony suited in the ass end of space, in a completely alien galaxy for the two mercs. Strange creatures prod along the streets under the starlight, indicating that this is a city that never really sleeps…

:ScorchSO: Then let’s go out there and make some moolah!
The Sakkilian gesture with her arms towards the city as a whole, as if she’s considering stealing all of it.
:FumeSO: …do you even know how to make credits in a place like this?
:ScorchSO: Fuck if I know, but I’ll just do my usual thing and bumble ass first into cash opportunities.
:FumeSO: Can you at least try and not get security on our tails within the hour this time? We don’t have a ship to flee in thanks to what you did on the last planet.
:ScorchSO: How would I know that they had an anti-spaceship battery installed, huh?
Fume sighs and closes his eyes, thus doesn’t notice that his sister is already walking away from him.
:FumeSO: So, are we sticking together or- you’re already leaving, of course.
:ScorchSO: I’m been stuck on a ship with you for a week, brother, I need some Scorch time!
:FumeSO: Just don’t light anything on fire, sis.
:ScorchSO: No promises~

Who do you follow for now?

Scroch, the hot tempered gal? She’s equipped with a low grade power armor, a lazpistol and a small flamer. Usually solves her problems with brute force and bravado.

Fume, the cool and collected lad? He’s equipped with cybernetic arms, engineering tools and a lazpistol. While he is a crack shot with his pistol, he usually prefers to solve his problems with quick thinking and outside the box solutions.

>Let’s follow, er, Scroch.
It’s Scorch, nitwit, not scroch. You better remember that name.
>Let's follow the lady with the thicc ass and thicc thighs!
Damn right you got a fine ass. Clearly the best part of yah!

You are Scorch, a former soldier of the PDU, now stranded as a mercenary in some unknown galaxy, willing to do nearly anything to keep you and your brother Fume alive and happy. So far it’s going… let just say the shit keeps hitting the fan, but at least you’re still in one piece. No, what you need to do is to make it big. Real big. So that the two of you can retire in luxury somewhere in this alien galaxy. But first you’ll probably need to fix that ship of yours. Even if it is a piece of scrap.

>What can you bring to the table, Scorch? What are your skills?
Kicking ass and taking names! Oh, and you can be really intimidating when you want to.
>Maybe find a way to get a new ship and jury rig the old ship into it, it doesn't need to be much as we can fix it up, maybe an old scrapper a big one to fit our ship into as camouflage.
Honestly, just stealing a ship would probably be the easiest way to do this, but your brother loves that stupid hunk of scrap so he’s probably not going budge before he fixes it. Still, he did say something about our FTL kicking the ass of these aliens FTL, so it might just be worth it to get that junk working again. Hmm… maybe you can get the parts and fuel without paying credits for them? Just a thought…


Walking into a smaller street, you stretch your back a bit and enjoy the breeze on your face. It’s always nice to get out of that ship. Still, you have no idea how to make that kind of cash Fume will need quickly, but you’re sure you’ll bumble into something interesting.

Can't do anything that'll land you in too much hot water, cause Fume is gonna need time to fix the ship. I assume you have some way of contacting him if there is trouble? Actually, do you even know what parts you need? Fuel is probably secondary to parts.

Might be able to get some attention as an exotic and intimidating lady, but that probably wouldn't be lucrative enough on it's own, more so just a tool to use here. Of course, a badass bitch like you can probably make a lot of money in Bounty Hunting, and look great doing it. A place like this, someone is bound to want someone else dead, caught (caught is harder, but less messy and more lucrative), or simply found.

>This place looks like a shit hole filled with low lives and those of ill repute...
Which makes it the perfect place to earn some quick cash! Besides, you don’t think you and your brother would be welcomed in the rich part of this city.
>I assume you have some way of contacting Fume if there is trouble?
You got a comm-mod, duh! You can just call him at any time.
>Actually, do you even know what parts you need? Fuel is probably secondary to parts.
Eh, Fume is the one who has to worry about the details… all you have to do is steal a whole engine and you’re sure he’ll have his parts.

>There's a drug war on, apparently. You could make easy money guarding shipments if you can find one gang or the other.
Hmm… the Riverlords and the Skulls, eh? Sounds like they don’t like each very much… which suits you just fine. After all, where there is conflict, there are credits! Though, you have no idea what this nectar crap is… probably either a drug or booze or something…
>Bet you could find some kind of blood sport around here that would let you kick someone's face in, get paid, and NOT have the cops on your ass.
Looking around a bit, you find a poster depicting a worm lady with her tits out and some kind of shrimp blasting her clothes off, and while those tits are interesting, what really caught your eye was the text. “Two teams enter… one teams leaves naked and humiliated! Join the Unbelievable Tournament today and either win fabulous prices… or be humiliated on live holo-vision!”. Huh… might be interesting…
>Of course, a badass bitch like you can probably make a lot of money in Bounty Hunting, and look great doing it.
You rip off one of the many wanted posters that are dotting the wall and take a closer look. “Wanted: Lady Xatni tol Tesrank de Cupal, for Nectar distribution, Destruction of property, Destruction of security officer clothes, Humiliating several people, Extortion, Theft, Bribes and rudeness. If brought to a security station naked and humiliated you will be rewarded. For more information, visit your nearest security station.” Huh… maybe you should visit one of those security stations and see who else they are looking for. You’re also noticing a pattern here about humiliations…


>Ask the smoking ?mushroom? if they know anyone who'd pay for violence.
”Hey, mushroom boy!” you yell to the large mushroom… whom you think is a man? He turn towards you and sneers, ”The rot? I’m not some-” but he stops when he sees you. Or, at least you think he sees you, as you can’t tell if he even have eyes! Still, as you’re a species he doesn’t recognize, it still makes him a bit more lenient about your ignorance. ”Lady, I’m a Mrrgh, not a mushroom. You better learn that if you want to keep yours spores covered, eh?”, he takes a long drag of his smoke stick before continuing, ”And why are you wasting my time?” You give him a large, toothy smile, ”You wouldn’t know anyone who needs to hire some muscle?” At first, he doesn’t answer, instead just looking at you for a minute, before stating in confusion, ”…why are you even asking me?” Well, it simple… ”Because you were the closes person I could find. Now tell me, sweetheart, which way to the big cash?” He takes another drag of his smoke stick before mumbling, ”…just go join Tournament if you want to fight… or go to security and become a bounty hunter or something. Though, if you’re really looking for trouble, the River Lord family hangs out in this club down near the river… while some Skulls can usually be found near the old refinery, at the bar there.” You give him a thumbs up while cheerfully expressing your gratitude, ”Thanks a bunch, mate, I appreciate this shit.” and he answers with a disinterested, ”Uh huh… whatever…”
>Like the graffiti says, consider asking for this Zali girl. It's not good for your little bro to spend too much time in the engine room. At least, not alone.
Well, he does get cranky if he doesn’t get his alone time… and you’re sure you’ve caught him staring at your bum more than once on long trips. Still, if he wasn’t your brother, he would be your type… a dork that’s easy to dominate. ”Hey, you wouldn’t know where this Zali gal is, would yah?” you ask the mushroom… err… the Mrrgh, but he doesn’t even turn to look at you and instead just points upwards.

On a balcony right above you, one of those blind lizard things is sitting and watching you intently… or at least you think he’s watching you. You do know from experience that these things see way too much for not having any eyes.

”Yo! You Zali?” you yell and you can hear him softly laugh before answering in a very sultry tone, ”Why, such a lovely little flower, are you looking for a good time, hmm?” His tail wags behind him as he throws you a kiss. While he is kind of cute, you’re a bit unsure about this. After all, you’re pretty sure your bro isn’t into dudes… at least, you’ve never seen him take dick. ”Well, I was looking for someone for my brother actually…” you tell him and he gives you a gentle smile, ”Boys, gals… I don’t care… both are beautiful, aren’t they?” You rub your shin a bit, ”Eh, I think he’ll pass…” but as soon as you say pass you notice how he’s suddenly paying more attention to you. ”Then how about you, my lovely little ruby, don’t you want to leave that scum below and come up to little old me? I promise you I’ll give you a night to remember~” Zali whispers in a very sexy way, as he lifts up his hind leg onto the balcony parapet to show off his body a bit more. ”Really?” you ask him, and he gives his own… um… butt you guess a little kiss before he continue his seduction attempt, ”For just 7.5k I’ll make you scream for whatever god you believe in all night… or do you prefer to get intimate? I’ve been told I’m a marvelous kisser~” Wait, how much!? You only got like 200 creds! ”7.5k!?” you exclaim, but he just licks his “butt ball” and gives it a quick smack, ”Oh, and if you’re feeling really naughty, for 10k I can mount you raw… I’m fertile you know, so I might just leave a little gift in that tummy of yours if you’re lucky, hmhm…” Zali look down at you and smile… and you’re sure if he had eyes he would wink at you. ”Right…”

>I mean, with your thicc ass and thicc thighs, you could go do sex for money.
”Honestly, I’m pretty sure I should get paid for letting you plow this fine ass, buddy.” you bellow as you give your own ass a loud smack, something that quickly draws the attention of that mushroom boy you talked to earlier. Zali takes his time and look you over, clearly enjoying what he “sees”, ”…it is indeed a fine ass, but… hmhm, still, I can’t really pay to do my own job, now can I?” You start to turn around, letting him get a nice view of your rear as you say, ”You’re loss, mate, guess I’ll need to find someone else who’ll enjoy this thing.” And as planned, Zali stops you from leaving, ”Though, you are rather exotic, whatever species you are… and you got the curves on the right place…” Looking up at him over your shoulder, you smile at him, ”Heh, changing your mind?” He waves his hands a bit in the air before explaining, ”Oh, no, I just got a better idea. Maybe we can make a little… movie? I’m sure our intimate encounter would be a popular pastime for some, little ruby. After all… with your ass and my twin cocks, we’ll make an excellent team.” Wait, what did he say? ”A movie? As in… filming a porno?” You hear a soft laugh from him before he leans down a bit and whisper, ”Though… I don’t really know you, do I? Don’t know if I can trust you, can I? Hmhm, no, it will have to wait… I’ll need to see if you’re dependable first. Come back when you’ve made more of a name for yourself here, love.” and with that he returns to watching the streets for another client.

Well, it seems you got some ideas how to make some dough… though you can’t really do them all, can you? Time to choose a path.

Zali's ego and sexuality are quite something. There are worse ways to get paid than being filmed while getting to experience that tongue and twin cocks. Keep the pornstar thing on the backburner, seems sex is quite lucrative around here, getting knocked up more so. Your rep is almost certainly gonna grow quite quickly, so gotta figure out what message to send with it.
That worm lady with the tits is cute. The Tournament may require an entry fee, but the bigger problem is you don't have a team, and the one they assign might try to stab you in the back. Need to investigate that whole process and your fellow contestants. Think you can convince your bro to back you up on that one? Two exotic contestants are better than one, plus you can trust him. Also, easier to get him some action if he's around.

Overall though, checking out a security station and figuring out what sort of small fry (or big game) you can hunt and strip for some pocket change might be in your best interest. At least you may learn who to avoid.

Well, she looks cute enough to match with bro, and sounds fun enough for you to hang out with her. She'd almost be a nice, rich benefactor, or addition to the crew, if it weren't for the bounty.

>You’re also noticing a pattern here about humiliations…
If it's how you gain respect around here, don't knock it. Actually, it really fits your style. This place might be the one.
>you’re sure you’ve caught him staring at your bum more than once on long trips. Still, if he wasn’t your brother, he would be your type…
Yeah, that settles it. You're not leaving this place until after you and bro get yourselves some action.

>>1050132
To be clear, how seriously are you going to take Zali's claims of fertility, or about breeding in general? You really don't have a need to, say, grow a person in a week. Going from breeding to birth is fun concept for a hardcore porno, though, even if need a decent FX budget.

>Time to choose a path.
Screw Security, actually. Join the Unbelievable Tournament. Prove yourself Outlaw Queen in more ways than one.

Hey, it’s like mamma used to say, if you love your job then you won’t work a day in your life… and one thing that you truly love is getting railed by cute boys! So you’re definitely keeping Zaki’s offer in mind for the future!
>Getting knocked up more so.
… … …well, you are biologically enhanced down there… so you can pretty much decide if you want to get knocked up or not if someone blows their load inside you. Heh, you have to wonder how a hybrid between you and some of these aliens will look like…
>Going from breeding to birth is fun concept for a hardcore porno, though.
Now this is something you’ll have to remember! You bet it would be a real hit.
>That worm lady with the tits is cute.
Eh… you prefer boys to gals most of the time… still, she does have a nice rack… and is that a second pair of tits beneath the first one? Nice.

Making your way to this “Unbelievable Tournament” Arena, you immediately kick open the door to make a grand entrance these dorks won’t forget. ”Somebody told me this place is where you sign up for the Unbelievable Tournament!” you bellow loudly as you walk into the entrance hall, leaving everyone inside speechless with the exception of a quiet, ”Ow…” originating from behind the door you just smashed through. But you ignore that, instead continuing your spiel, ”Your time is up, chumps, because the new Outlaw Queen is here to dominate!” lifting up your arms as if you’re about to grab the very world as your own. ”My mandibles…” someone whimpers behind you…

”So whose dick do I have to suck and/or blow off to be part of this shit!?” you ask as you pound your chest, though it doesn’t give the effect you were hoping for. Everyone inside just gives you a look before a very unimpressed… um… robot thingy float towards you and starts talking in a rather pleasant sounding female voice, ”Ma’am, please calm down. You’ll need to wait for your turn like everyone else.” Pointing towards yourself with your thumb, you exclaim, ”Do you know who I am sweetheart? I’m the baddest bitch around and I’m going to rock this little tourney crap and become its fucking champion!” You can see the other people trading glances before a deep voice originating from the stone creature asks, ”…do you even know what the Unbelievable Tournament is?” You give him a big toothy smile and tell him with confidence, ”You kick peoples asses and win, right?” but the robot just sighs, ”Very well, let me explain the game.”


”The Unbelievable Tournament is a competition that takes place completely inside a holographic arena, which is capable of simulating both your clothes and armor as well as any weaponry you may want to bring into it. It is also possible to rent holographic weapons as well, for a price of course, though it is far cheaper than buying real guns. These weapons will be designed to only be able to remove clothes from your enemies and not actually harm them.” as she explains, she shows off some holograms of guns in her hand, ”The goal is to humiliate your competition by removing their clothes while trying to keep your own protected, as you are eliminated when you become completely naked. Those that are eliminated may leave the arena at any time, but it is allowed, and indeed encourage, for whomever that eliminated them to dominate their body if the situation allows it.” The robot makes a gesture you so well recognize, making a circle with one hand and poking a finger into it with the other. ”Whoever has the most points in the end wins. You get 1 point for eliminating foes, 1 point for making them orgasm and 1 point if you are the last contender standing. If you manage to get someone to orgasm before they are naked, they’ll be eliminated and you’ll get both points immediately.” she explains with a very matter of fact voice, ”Some arenas may have additional ways to earn points… or special items to help you defeat your foes… or even natural hazards that you can use to your advantage.” The robot then gesture towards two large screens behind her desk, marked solo and team, ”There will be two tournaments going starting tomorrow. One is for solo play, where you will be either facing other foes in a 1 on 1 or a free for all with up to ten people. The reward is 25 million credits for the champion. The other tournament is for team play, where teams of five compete against each other. The reward is 500 million credits, divided between the team members.” Holy shit, 500 million!? Is there even that much cash on this goddess forsaken rock!? ”Finally, to be able to join the tournament you’ll need to partake in a qualifying match beforehand, and impress the judges and a possible sponsor with your skills. Though, teams are allowed to consist of only three out of five qualified members.” You take a moment to take this all in… this really does sound like your type of game, doesn’t it? ”Well, shit… that’s one hell of a game…”


>The bigger problem is you don't have a team, and the one they assign might try to stab you in the back.
Not having a team is a problem, sure, but why would you need to worry about getting backstabbed? You win and lose together, right?
>Think you can convince your bro to back you up on that one? Two exotic contestants are better than one, plus you can trust him. Also, easier to get him some action if he's around.
Yeah, you definitely need to get him in on this shit. He’s a really good shot, even if he’s melee skills suck balls.

” Well, thanks a bunch, robot gal!” you tell her, but she gets clearly irritated, ”I am a Nox, not a robot.” but you ignore that for now and keep going, ”Now sign me up for one of those quality matches!” The rob… err… the Nox sighs again before stating, ”Qualification match. You are in luck, as the last match before the tournament will be held in about an hour. The entry fee is 500 credits.” Wait? 500? You only have 200 credits! And even if you managed to convince your bro to give you his share, you’ll only have 400! Shit! ”Err… and if I don’t have that cash on me?” you ask rather sheepishly as you rub the back of your head… and you’re pretty sure the Nox rolls her singular eye somehow, ”Then you may still join as part of a team. Be very, though, as after today we will not approve any more teams containing unqualified members for the tournament. There are also 0 teams looking for more members right now.” Huh, this is getting worse and worse… ”So… when is the next chance for this shit?” She stares at you like you’re stupid before telling you, ”This big tournament is only held once every four years. But there will smaller matches played after it is completed, in a month or so. Now, is there any other way I can be of assistance?”

I mean you did say you are amazing... plus it would be kind of funny to see them have to chose between joining your team or going to jail if you found enough people.

If your bro was here, this would when the robot lady's credit counter gets suspiciously glitchy right now. You could fill the discrepancy in their ledger with your winnings before they catch on. But, there's a passing opportunity behind you in the guise of hurt mandibles...

"Oh my, it looks like i accidentally injured one of the contestants."
*after, at minimum, death glare* "Yep, she's definitely too injured to compete in the tournament. Looks like the Bandit Queen has to take her place."

>Not having a team is a problem, sure, but why would you need to worry about getting backstabbed? You win and lose together, right?
While I won't discount how much interpersonal drama can make a team fall apart, absenta strong leader to knock their heads together, I think it's about the fact that you're from a rare, advanced, and powerful species that a lot of people would want to study or steal their personal collection. Not that you should care. Her bro would want to keep a low profile, but your style's been working for you so far.

>Now this is something you’ll have to remember! You bet it would be a real hit.
Of course, but can your body really do that? It might be very unlikey to find the right medicinal cocktail of stimulants and gestational accellerants around here. Not unless it's this recreational drug they passed it off as.

Speaking of, I'm surprised the arena doesn't screen for any drugs, either.

Haggle. Ask if you can get a discount for entering with just your own clothing instead of simulated clothing.

It'll be a high risk since if our clothing is damaged, we won't have clothes after the match and will have to walk around naked in public if we fail, but at least we will be able to afford getting into the tournament easier.

You should just become a bounty hunter. It'd be easier than trying to enter a tournament where you can't pay the entry fee.

>>1050321
>no clothes after match
Not true. We were told this would take place in a holographic arena that simulates our clothes. That means our real clothes won't be affected by anything.

>Can your body really do that? It might be very unlikely to find the right medicinal cocktail of stimulants and gestational accelerants around here.
Eh, you’re sure they’ll have some shit here that can do it… or at least fake it. But that’s for later.

>Think we could track down some of those bounties and either force them to join our team or turn them into quick cash within an hour? I mean you did say you are amazing...
You’re amazing at kicking ass, yeah, but you don’t know how to fucking find some lowlife hiding out in a city you’ve never been in. At least not in less than an hour. So no, you better come up with a better idea…
>If your bro was here, this would when the robot lady's credit counter gets suspiciously glitchy right now.
Eh, he would probably complain that it was too much of a risk for too little payout… but still, having your bro here might help… maybe you should call him? Nah, maybe after the fight…


>Speaking of, I'm surprised the arena doesn't screen for any drugs, either.
”Combat enhancing drugs is legal to use in the tournament.” the Nox lady answers, ”As long as they are legally acquired. Any substances not marked with the official seal of Verdante or one of the four other colonies participating will be reported to security.”

>There's a passing opportunity behind you in the guise of hurt mandibles...
”Oh no! Looks like I accidently smashed another contestant’s face in!” you say as you make a show to seem concerned about the weird hairy centipede that was in your way earlier. ”Accidently? You’re com- HEY!” she is about to whine about something but you grab her and pull her into a headlock, ”See, she’s clearly too injured to compete. Looks like the Bandit Queen has to take her place!” She squirms in your grip for a bit, before crying out, ”I’m a man, acid breath, and I’m not injured!” Huh, it’s a he? No matter, you ignore his pleas either way and instead grip him harder, giving him a death glare, ”I said… you’re injured!” but he doesn’t bite, instead the centipede continues to struggle in vain against you while whining, ”L-let go of me, y-you slime covered l-lizard!” Finally, the Arena lady speaks up, ”Ma’am, please save that until you’re in the arena. This is pointless, as you are not allowed to take someone else’s spot like this.”
>Try bullying your way onto a team.
”Alright, how about this then… you’ll let me join your team, dork, and I’ll stop bullying you.” you whisper to the alien you’re holding, all the while you start giving him a noogie, ”I’m n-not even on a t-team, fat ass! I’m h-here to qualify!” You keep grinding your knuckles into his fur, thought with slightly less enthusiasm, ”Well, darn…”
>Haggle. Ask if you can get a discount for entering with just your own clothing instead of simulated clothing.
”You may not enter the arena with normal clothes, ma’am.” the Nox lady tells you, ”Oh, come on! I’m sure the fans will love it! After all, if my clothes are damaged, I’ll need to walk around in public naked, won’t I?” She doesn’t even consider your deal, instead stating in a matter of fact way, ”While I am sure some would be interested in that, ma’am, but that isn’t the problem. For the holographic weapons to work you’ll need to wear the correct clothing.” You keep the centipede boy pressed against your body, just in case, before you continue to haggle, ”Well, shit… then how about a small discount then? Just a hundred creds?” but as you’re talking to the Nox, you can feel him squirm even harder. Finally, he says, ”Please g-give this acid drinker a d-discount!” something that takes you a bit by surprise, ”Oh? So you want me to join then?” He stops struggling and gives you a hard glance, ”I’m going to hunt you down, drench you in acid and fuck that fat ass of yours so hard that you will walk funny for the rest of your life, slime eater, and I can’t do that if you don’t join!” You give him a smirk and another noogie, before returning your attention to the Arena lady, ”See, even this dork want me to have a discount, sweetheart.” but she just shakes her head, ”I do not possess the authority to give you a discount, ma’am. Either you pay the 500 credits, or you don’t join.”

”Alright, boys and girls, I need a quick job that pays 300 creds right now.” you bellow as you look over the other three people in the room, ”Anyone got anything?” The Nox robot thingy just looks at you with her usual bored expression, but both the stone creature and the mushroom exchange glances, before the gargoyle speaks up, ”I’ll give you 300 credits if you suck my dick.” while he grabs his rather large package between his legs. The Mrrgh crosses her arms and quietly murmurs ”Really?” which makes the stone male try and defend himself, ”Hey, I’m horny… and she’s really cute.” Well, at least it’s an offer… and it’s not the first time you’ve given blowjobs for cash, ”I’ll keep that in consideration, little man.”

>Look that the blush, he's totally into it.
”You heard her, dork. If you want a date with the Outlaw Queen, you gotta foot the bill. Them's the rules.” you tell the cute little boy as he keeps struggling in your grasp. ”Why w-would I?” he whines, ”Because If you want the chance to hunt my fat ass down, you better pay the nice Nox lady 300 credits.” The centipede stops squirming for a bit as he consider the offer, before finally telling you, ”…y-you can borrow 300 credits. I want t-them back later.” Well, as long as you get to join this shit, ”Fine, I’ll pay you back, sweetheart. You have my word.” Finally letting go of the alien, he quickly scuttles towards the Arena lady and gives her a cred stick, ”Just take 300 creds already.” With a quick motion, the Nox pulls out a small device and scans the stick, before turning to you and saying, ”And that is in total 500. Very well, you may join as a contender now.” You give her a big smile, ”Sweet… so, what is your name anyway, dork?” you ask as you look over to the centipede, but he just makes what you assume is a rude gesture, ”Fuck you, that’s what.” before leaving your sight. ”Please follow me so you can get registered.” the Area employee states, which you obviously do, ”Alright, let’s do this.”

After some quick paperwork and signing a bunch of stuff about consent, you’re now officially part of the Unbelievable Tournament. You’ve even been given your own profile on their network, under the name Outlaw Queen, as well as access to said network through a small hand tablet.

Name: Scorch (Outlaw Queen) Gender: Female Species: Sakkilian
Primary: Lazgun Secondary: Flamer Rank: Unqualified

It’s pretty sweet… now, let’s see if you can find the other chumps you’re about to fight. As you’re scrolling through the list of registered contenders, you follow the others into what seems to be the locker-room for those that seek to qualify, where you spot the last member of the coming battle, one of those multi-tit worms sharpening a blade. But your train of thought is interrupted when you hear a small beep from the tablet in your hand when you accidently aim it towards the mushroom.

Name: Phassli (Phoenix) Gender: Female Species: Mrrgh
Primary: Flame Lance Secondary: Spore Cannon Rank: Unqualified

Oh, this Mushroom, Phassli, seems to like burning stuff… and going by how she’s stretching, she seems rather agile as well… and she got a nice rack too!

Name: Kaxkan (Slicer) Gender: Female Species: Korak
Primary: Gravity Grappler Secondary: Twin blades Rank: Unqualified

The worm in the back is Kaxkan it seems, who’s armor is… well, it’s rather skin-tight... and is she holding that sword with her tongue? Tongues even? Nice tits, though… all six of em.

Name: Urak Vol (Onyx King) Gender: Male Species: Flaûgnir
Primary: Shatter Shotgun Secondary: Proximity grenade Rank: Unqualified

The gargoyle guy is reading from the same kind of tablet you got, clearly checking out the competition as well… hmm, you really need to figure out how he talks without a mouth… and if he’s… heh… rock hard. He does have a package you won’t mind to fondle, though…

Name: Ba’taq (Acid Fang) Gender: Male Species: Gartag
Primary: Acid Launcher Secondary: Cameo Adapter Rank: Unqualified

Finally, there’s the centipede boy, who’s made himself scarce. Probably afraid of getting bullied again… but you can’t help it, cute dorks deserve to be bullied!

Right… there’s still some time before the match begins… so… um… let’s waste some time?
>>
No. 1050567 ID: 2a82d3

Go ahead and flirt with the gargoyle, seeing as he's quite cute himself and honest to boot. Also, it's to make sure the 300 cred deal is still on the table after the match, in case you can't pay back 'taq any other way. Though, see if he can agree to do it while you sit on him. Always being the domme us your ideal, after all.

Between Urak Vol, Ba'taq, and Zali, you're possibly getting quite the harem. Can you juggle multiple relationships? How good are your sex mods? If you can get pregnant at will, could your body could also store and save seed like a bank for anyone who makes a deposit? You're not the type to retire until you finish your quest to hit it big, but being warm and "pregnant" by multiple partners is still pretty hot. The hormones might even give you an edge in a fight.

Hey, look at those things on the back wall. They're free for contenders, which means they're free for you too! There's condoms, lube, and I can't see what that last one is because the gargoyle guy is in the way, but I think it says sex enhancers. Anyways, the point is, there's some free shit for you, so go check and see if they're worth having.

Looks like you should watch out for the centipede boy you were bullying. He's got something to camouflage himself, which he'll definitely use to try and sneak up on you!

No. 1050612 ID: e7fc0a

Eh, you don't need the condoms, just make sure your reproductive settings are locked to 'infertile', and require you to do a math and a logic problem or something along those lines to change that, which you aren't generally going to be able to do while under the influence of most mind altering substances. You can let the cute guy know you've done this too~~ but you DO intend to win!

>Hey, look at those things on the back wall. They're free for contenders, which means they're free for you too!
Aw shit, free stuff! You love free stuff! Let’s see… condoms? Well, you don’t actually need them but they are free, so why the fuck not? You tap some of the buttons to get a few condoms that will fit all three of the cute boys you’ve met so far, just to see what they look like. The Flaugnir is rather big, heh… and the Gartag one is really thick, whatever that means. The Raolme one, meanwhile, is actually a two pack… which means Zali actually have twin dicks after all! You also grab some lube and fertility pills because… it’s fucking free stuff, am I right?
>Looks like you should watch out for the centipede boy you were bullying. He's got something to camouflage himself, which he'll definitely use to try and sneak up on you!
Pff, that dork won’t be able to take you on even if he ambushes you! No need to worry! Besides, you’ll hear him stammer a mile away even if he’s cloaked!

>Make sure your reproductive settings are locked to 'infertile', and require you to do a math and a logic problem or something along those lines to change that.
While you can’t lock it with math, you can set it to be unchangeable for the next 24 hours. Though… you still have to consider if that is what you want.
>How good are your sex mods? If you can get pregnant at will, could your body could also store and save seed like a bank for anyone who makes a deposit?
While you can’t really store the seed, you should be able to get impregnated by several different people over the course of… like a month or so. Heh, if you play your cards right, you may just get pregnant with every last species around here… fuck, that’s kind of hot, actually… gotta fuck ‘em all, hehe…


>Go ahead and flirt with the gargoyle, seeing as he's quite cute himself and honest to boot.
”Hey, big guy, this seat taken?” you ask the Flaugnir as you approach the bench he is currently occupying, making him look up from his datapad at you, ”Hmm? Oh, it’s you. Feel free to relax next to me if you want, cutie.” Turning around, you make sure he get a nice view of your rump before you sit down next to him, all the while telling him, ”How can I resist not getting close to such a handsome guy like yourself, sweetheart.” Turning his head, he looks straight into your eyes, ”Heh, I guess you can’t… I’m Urak Vol, former soldier.” even giving a slight nod as he introduce himself. ”Really? I’m kind of a former soldier myself, you know. Name’s Scorch, handsome, and I used to be a soldier before becoming a merc.” you tell him, and you can see his eyes widen slightly before he looks you up and down, ”Well, seems like I’ll have some competition in this match after all.” He says it like it’s obvious, like it’s a fact, so you have to ask, ”Oh? You don’t think these other fuckers will put up a fight?” Shaking his head, he explain while gesturing towards the others, ”Of course they will, but… well, the mushroom is a dancer at a strip club, the worm is an actress in adult movies and finally the insect is a virgin who still lives with his mom and work fastfood.” Well, doesn’t sound like the most experienced chumps, does it? ”Why, don’t you know your shit, eh?” you tell him, and he beams happily, ”Though I don’t know you, Scorch.” You close your eyes and give him a big toothy smile, before telling him, ”I’m a bit of a mystery, aren’t I, Vol?” His laugh echo’s through is body, reminding you about drums beating deep in the earth, ”I do like mysterious gals… and cute ones at that…”
>Make sure the 300 cred deal is still on the table after the match, in case you can't pay back 'taq any other way.
”You’re still sucking cock for just 300 creds?” he asks with a raised eyebrow, and you give him the usual explanation, ”A gal gotta have hobbies, you know. Though, I’m going to sit on your cute little snout when I do it.” Once again, he keeps eye contact with you as he speaks, ”Oh? But I’d rather see those cute, opal eyes of yours look up at me before I paint a masterpiece on that beautiful face of yours, Scorch.” It’s cheesy, but you do love your dorks, ”Heh… well, I might change my mind, Vol.”
>You can let the cute guy know you can be infertile at will~~ but you DO intend to win!
Vol looks at you as he sounds his curiosity, ”Really? Doesn’t that remove some of the excitement?” to which you can only reply, ”Excitement? What do you mean?” The Flaugnir takes a second to think through his words before presenting his argument, ”Not knowing if the guy who’s about to dominate you will wear a condom or not… or if it will break… or if the gal that’s about to ride you will pull off your own condom halfway through the fun.” You give it some thoughts… and he’s right… ”That does sound rather exciting, yeah.” He glances towards the other two gals before murmuring, ”Though, even if you are infertile, I’m still going to bring condoms. They can still be fun even if you can’t get knocked up, you know.” something that’s also correct, ”I guess I can collect a few of ‘em as trophies or somesuch…”

”You know, I like you cutie. That’s why I’m going to humiliate you last.” he tells you in a playful manner, forcing you to respond in kind, ”Heh, you can try, big guy, but we both know who’s going to humiliate who.” Lifting his large fist, Vol holds it up towards you as he proclaims, ”Really? Then let the best fighter win!” and you give him a quick fist bump, ”To a fair game!”

>Between Urak Vol, Ba'taq, and Zali, you're possibly getting quite the harem. Can you juggle multiple relationships?
Multiple relationships? Bah, they’ll be your boytoys! No need for a proper relationship… right?

[Meanwhile, in a nearby V.I.P lounge]

All in. you say as you push every last chip in front of you forward, 100.000 credits on number 3. Number 3 will win this, I can feel it! The shrimp lady on the other side of the table gives you a skeptical look, Why, aren’t you a real high roller, Mr…? Pointing at yourself with both of your cybernetic thumbs, you proudly state, I’m just the best gambler around. Call me Fume, lady SilverEye. She gives you a look that would kill lesser men before growling, It’s Captain SilverEye to you, landlubber. Captain SilverEye of the Flashy Freebooters, a pirate feared across the ports of this sector! You flash her a quick smile, Noted… though, maybe we can make this bet even more interesting? Curiosity flashes over the pirate’s eye, Oh? You have more booty? no, but you have something better than that, Well, I was actually thinking of the lovely booty right in front of me. How about if I win, you’ll go on a date with me, Captain? You give her the most charming smile you can manage, and she seems to like it, as she actually laughs,KEKEKE, be glad that I like you, landlubber, because I’ve keelhauled fools for less! Well, your mama always said you were a gambler… It was worth a try~

You are Fume, and you’re currently betting 100.000 credits that doesn’t belong on you on a game you barely know anything about except for a tip that number 3 will win... and you’re doing that right inside the personal lounge of what is apparently a pirate captain and her crew. It is time like these that you feel really alive…

Now, Fume, I am quite curious on why you suddenly came out from nowhere… and bet this much on a qualification game of all things? she asks as she rubs her claw against her manibles, Oh, you know… I’m just a guy who loves to bet… and I had a bit of pocket change on me. She stares you down, but you just keep smiling at her, Huh uh… and you seem rather content that you might lose all these credits as well. By the salty beard of the lady, I am a gambling gal myself, but even I feel a bit jittery after this big of a bet. she mutters as she picks up a chip with her left, mechanical claw, just to make sure they are real. Hey, it’s a one in four chance. I’m sure I’ll win. you tell her with full confidence, but she just gives you a look that makes your bravado falter slightly, …It’s a one in five, landlubber. …wait, what? Huh? One in five? But there’s only four contenders? you ask, and she gives a little laugh before telling you, There was a last minute sign up it seems… and it’s someone interesting.

She calls herself the outlaw queen. she tells you as she holds up a hologram of the last minute contender.

It is Scorch, your sister. Why is she part of the match? When did she have time to sign up? Damn it, this complicates things! But don’t worry, Fume, you can handle it… just keep your cool and your wits will carry you.

Do you know her? the pirate captain asks, leaning closer, Err… I don’t believe I do? She gives you a long look before shifting the glance to the hologram, You two are the same species, aren’t you? A rather rare species that I’ve never seen before at that… Giving a weak smile, you tell her, Hey, just because we’re the same species doesn’t- but she interrupts you, I know both of you beached your ship just outside the city not that long ago, Fume. Oh crap. I mean… yeah, I know her? So what? You’re in trouble, and she knows it, You sail in from nowhere, bet a massive haul of doubloons on a match no one really cares about and you know one of the landlubbers that’s part of said match… and you don’t even bet on her? Very suspicious. Okay, you can still work with this… she doesn’t know the money is fake, that the chips are worthless if you try and cash them in so… just keep going, Err… I mean… It’s just a coincidence? I haven’t even talked to her since- and once again the shrimp interrupts you, She called you 5 minutes ago.”Oh… um… right.”

She gesture with her silver claw, and you feel two of her crew move in behind you, to make sure you don’t try and run.

You see, landlubber, I was skeptical about you at first, but now… she picks up another one of the chips and give it a very thorough look, Two outlaws that are wanted in three different nearby ports, once even for fraud, come sailing to me and bet 100.000 doubloons on a match one of them partakes in? the chip is flipped into the air before landing on top of your large pile of cash, and as you look over your eyes are met by a very stern stare, I have to ask, Mr. Fume… where did you get all that booty?

…don’t say you hacked the chip dispenser system… don’t say that they are worthless… don’t tell her you’re feeling more alive than you’ve done for months…

Seems like you're a little bit fucked. You can't run or fight your way out, and charming and lying your way out don't seem that likely, though not impossible. Still, gonna have to convince her that you're of value to her specifically, somehow.
You know, despite the situation, she might be the closest thing to your ideal woman (within the immediate vicinity): you both love gambling, risk, and booty. Might want to avoid getting distracted thinking about or looking at that glorious booty or cute pirate attire though, as well as asking where she got all her booty, as that seems risky, but she might like daring. Could offer her your services as a bonus, if only to drag the conversation out.
Could point out that you literally didn't know she would be joining the match until the captain corrected you, but that doesn't answer the doubloon question.
Anything stowed in/fitted to your cybernetic arms that might help? A desperate man is a dangerous man, and you seem pretty desperate. They're shrimp like, so that probably don't like fire or plasma.

Tell her it's none of her business how you got the money.
Tell her your sister didn't have enough credits to enter, so you don't know how she's competing and this caught you completely by surprise, hence your complete lack of a cover story. That call 5 minutes ago didn't have anything to do with it. Wait, no, she was about to ask you for money but didn't say why... so she must have been trying to pay the fee then. Someone else must've made up the difference. (Yes, say that out loud; the more open you are about your thought process the better, so long as you're avoiding talking about your real crime)

Also that since she's already ruined half the mystery (play it up like you're an eccentric who likes betting randomly... because that's what you did in the first place) you should find out who number 3 is so you know how screwed you are.

If your big sis was here, this would be when the pirate is defenstrated (thrown out the nearest window equivalent) while you get the ship r- your ship isn't fixed yet, is it...

You can stall for time to think by misinterpreting her request for your booty as a flirt. Time to trump up your personal assets. Your ass IS quite nice, thank you, and you've been told what's in front is very virile too, if that's important to you. Please be gentle. The only booty you've been with is the holographic kind.

There's 2 ways out of this hole:
1) Claim you made a bet on someone else's behalf. Who? She looked loaded, and snakey, and blind. Yeah, the lobsters and the eels don't get along, right? That explains why she wouldn't be in person.

Who gave your tip anyway? That's someone you can pin this on. Not great, but neither is gaining permanent residence on a slaver ship. (If it wasn't permanent, it wouldn't seems so bad.) If she's in the betting room, she'd also bet the same as you would, assuming she doesn't change it to the new girl.

2), Claim you totally meant to do that. You know your sister enough to know she tends to showboat on camera, it landed her in jail one time, and you're hoping thinking it'd make her slip up in the game. Is three the gargoyle? He looks tough. If she loses to her, hopefully she'd overlook betting against her after your winnings. If she wins, well, that's when she catches your message (that you sent in secret after you catch her name, ship or where she's sending you) and comes to bail your ass.

The first one risks being made an example of, and involves selling out someone, but more importantly doesn't seem like it would get you laid. Helping to repopulate a dying race isn't the worst thing, once you get a rebreather.

You saying that someone is cheating and has made arrangements to fix the match to make sure number 3 will win?

>>1050687
>Why is she part of the match?
For the prize money. Duh.

You're supposed to be the smart one, so how'd you not immediately know it was something like that? It's really obvious!

...suddenly realize this is why she called you for money earlier. She was going to register both of you, because she knows you've got really good aim, so that you could both win together. Guess she found someone else to help pay her entry fee.

>suspicious you didn’t bet on her
It's like Captain SilverEye said, "Outlaw Queen" is a last minute entry, you didn’t bet on her because you didn't know she was going to enter. You honestly thought she was going to run off and suck dick for money.

Besides, if you did know she was going to enter, then you would've bet on her. And since Captain SilverEye knows you and Outlaw Queen know each other, then that would've been even more suspicious than you not betting on her.

There's this thing called honesty. Sprinkle it over your horse pucky.
Explain that you really don't pay enough attention to whatever shenanigans your annoying little sister does on a whim, and that you'd bet against her anyway. Seriously, she's too brash to win this tournament - and hey, if she did win, the prize money would offset your lost bet.

>You know, despite the situation, she might be the closest thing to your ideal woman (within the immediate vicinity): you both love gambling, risk, and booty.
You do love the kind of woman that can kick your ass, sure… but a pirate captain? She is kinda cute, though…
>You may get a permanent residence on a slaver ship.
That is a residence you rather not move into, so let’s get out of this mess already!
>Helping to repopulate a dying race isn't the worst thing, once you get a rebreather.
Then again… no, even if you were sure, you can’t just give up to the shrimp pussy! Shrussy?

>You saying that someone is cheating and has made arrangements to fix the match to make sure number 3 will win?
Err… well… no. What you’re saying is that you hacked into the roster information and saw that one of the contenders where leagues above the others when it comes to combat abilities, which means it will be an easy win… in theory, at least. It’s not like you can lose money you don’t have, anyway.
>Anything stowed in/fitted to your cybernetic arms that might help?
Hmm… it mostly just tools… and a stunrod, but that won’t help… maybe you can… no… no… that won’t work…


>You can stall for time to think by misinterpreting her request for your booty as a flirt.
”I’m a bit hurt that you would assume this booty isn’t real.” you tell her while pouting in an over the top way, though she seems more annoyed than anything, ”A booty this fine needs to be closely examined… both by sight and touch. Now, where did you get it from?” A smirk spreads across your lips, ”Why, the same place most others get it from, of course. I just got what my mama gave me.” a statement which makes her raise an eyebrow, ”Your mother gave you this booty, landlubber?” Giving her a big toothy smile, you state proudly, ”Though what my father gave me is even more impressive!” SilverEye looks at you with a bit of curiosity... then a light turns on behind her eyes, ”Oh, did he give you an even larger treasure?” Still, you have to keep going, even if she gets the joke, ”Not only large… by virile as well… if that’s important to you.” She smirks a bit, before grabbing a large cutlass from a nearby table and pointing it towards you, ”It might be, little boy… but you’re just lucky you’re cute. Now, if you don’t stop wasting my time by talking about your ass I will make you walk the plank out the airlock. So one last time… where did you dig up this treasure?”

>Explain that you really don't pay enough attention to whatever shenanigans your annoying little sister does on a whim.
”Oh? You don’t know what your crew is up to?” she says as she stands up behind the table, ”My little sister is… a bit impulsive. Honestly, I thought she would just run off and suck dick for creds like last time.” You watch as she does a double take before laughing, ”KEKEKE, I see that you don’t think highly of her.” After flicking a stray hair away from your snout, you continue, ”Which is why I wouldn’t bet on her even if I did know about her joining!” Putting one leg on a chair, se lifts up the cutlass and places its sharp end into her metal claw while muttering, ”Still… she’s part of the match…” You clear your throat before explaining further, ”She’s an last minute entry, remember? You saw that I was very surprised when you brought her up.” The Captain looks up from her blade and observes you for a moment, ”…your expression could also be seen as a ‘Oh barnacle, she caught us’.” Giving your most innocent look, you continue to squirm your way out of this, ”Well… sure… but why is it more suspicious that I didn’t bet on her anyway?” Her answer is both quick and firm, ”Because you might have made a deal with her to take a dive and aid the one you bet on. After all, it’s easier to lose than to win, no?” As she talks, she starts swinging the cutlass in your general direction, making you a bit unnerved, ”Well… err… I honestly didn’t know she would be part of this?” With the sword still pointing right at you, she stares you down… before putting her blade back into her metal claw, ”…we’ll see about that. Now… answer my question… the doubloons? Where did you dig it up?”

>Claim you made a bet on someone else's behalf. Who? She looked loaded, and snakey, and blind.
These shrimp don’t like those eels, right? What are they called? Raolme? ”Oh, someone blind you say?” she asks with a new interest. Suddenly she very engaged in what you’re saying, listening to every word with renewed focus, ”Yeah, it was one of those… scaly ones that walk on all fours… and don’t have eyes.” Her expression visibly sours, ”Really?” so you quickly answers, ”And she gave me the chips and told me to bet on number 3, and if I won I would keep half the winnings.” The captain narrows her eyes at you, clearly skeptical about the strider shit you’re spinning ”…what did she look like?” Oh crap… how did she… wait… ”Um… older? A bit… green…?” Her eyes narrows even further, ”…and her face marking?” Alright, think Fume… the wanted poster! What did she have on her face again!? ”It was… some kind of yellow swirly thingy.” you explain while gesturing into the air… and it is clear she knows who you’re talking about, ”Riverlords… typical landlubbers.” She starts to sharpen the blade in her hand, making sparks fly as she drags her metal claw across it, and without even looking up she states, ”…Seeing as you’re clearly a fool, it isn’t a surprise one of those eels would be able to trick you. The chips are clearly unregistered and thus worthless, so that barnacle tried to trick us both.” Your heart pound, your legs shake… but it feels like you’re flying! She’s buying it! You just need to keep going. ”I d-didn’t know they were… um… fake… so… I’m free to go?” you ask, but she just chuckles, ”You still tried to trick me, so no. But I am willing to parley…” she once again points the cutlass directly at you, ”As I said before, I am a gambling gal… so let’s make a bet… two bets in fact. If you win both, I’ll let you go… but if you lose one, I’ll take everything you have of value, including that ship of yours, before kicking you out.” The Captain lifts up her blade and looks it over, ”…and if I lose both?” and with one quick motion she cleaves the cactus right behind her as if it was air, ”…then I’ll take that fine booty of yours and sell it for a high price. An exotic slave like yourself will surely fetch some real treasure… after I’ve had my own fun with you, of course.” You can’t help but shudder from her glare, ”So… what are the bets?” She takes her time to start sharpening her blade again before answering, ”The first… well, you’ve already made it. Number 3 will have to win the competition.” you let out a slight whine as you hear that, ”As for the second bet… well, surprise me.” Wait, what? ”Huh?” She looks up at you and smiles, ”As I said, I’m a gambling gal… so if you come up with a bet that will keep me entertain through the whole match, I’ll bet on it. Preferably something that involves you making a fool of yourself, landlubber.”

What you need to do is find a way to spin this bet as a way to send a message to Outlaw Queen in secret. It'll go to voicemail, but at least it'll help her find you once she wins her competition. Big Sis is a lot of things, but a loser is not one of them.

You could access a computer by suggesting a prank video call to the leader of the Riverlords. Since she's radiating "step on me" enery, both of you could do an S&M routine on display. It'll humiliate you, by having to do whatever she says on record, and her, by watching her rival get some action she can't have. Don't worry about blowing up your lie: the Captain will having such a wild time she'd think the Riverlord is denying out of sexual frustration. If you can't message her directly, the Riverlords will by leveraging for her help.

Hey, you can’t go running to your little sister every time you get in trouble! She’ll never let you live it down if you do! No, you’ll solve this on your own… you just need an opening, that’s all...
>Little Sis is a lot of things, but a loser is not one of them.
While she has determination and bravado, you’re not sure she’s the best combatant out there. After all, she’s more used to bully weaker adversaries than going tail-to-tail with someone on her own level. So sure, she might win… but you wouldn’t bet on it.

>OPEN FIRE AND SKEDADDLE.
You look around, eyeing your options. The door is guarded by two pirate thugs... while the only window out of here leads directly into the area of this ‘Unbelievable Tournament’ crap. It doesn’t help that they took your lazgun when you entered, so the only weapon you have is your cybernetic arms. Hmm, maybe if you somehow- ”You aren’t considering trying to swim away are you, you scurvy crab?” the Captain interrupts your thought but poking the tip of her cutlass into your throat, ”Because if you are… well, let just say that I know where your sister is… and your ship. So don’t even think about it, landlubber.”

>Drinking contest?
”You honestly think you can drink more rum than a pirate captain? I wouldn’t suggest it, as our drinks generally melt the insides of most other species. Of course, you’re free to try, KEKEKE!”
>Eating contest?
”Eating? And what do you suggest we eat?” You look straight into her eyes and wiggle your eyebrows, ”well, I’ve heard the shrimp here is really good.” and she immediately answers by poking the blade of her cutlass harder against your throat, ”That’s a no, then?”
>Dancing contest?
”While it would be amusing to see you dance the rope fandango for the whole match, it isn’t quite what I had in mind for a scallywag that tried to hornswoggle me.” she drops her blade a bit as she continues, ”And I have to ask… do you even know what a bet is? So far you’ve only brought up competitions between us, not something you bet on.”

>You could access a computer by suggesting a prank video call to the leader of the Riverlords.
”And you really think I have a direct connection to my mortal enemies? Not to mention, what kind of prank do you even have in mind.” She move the cutlass away from you and back into her metal claw as she waits for your reply, ”Well… heh… you are radiating a very strong ‘step on me’ energy, so… we make a video call to them while you humiliate me with some S&M play.” The captain looks up at you with one of her eyebrows raised, ”…and that will accomplish what, exactly?” Clearing your throat, you explain, ”The Riverlords will be forced to watch one of their rivals get some action they can’t have, namely with the exotic new twink in town, me!” You punctuate the last word by striking a pose, pointing at yourself with one of your thumbs while putting your other hand on your hip. SilverEyes just looks at you with annoyance, ”…you just want me to step on you, don’t you?” With a very faltering smile, you say, ”Err… o-of course not.” and she just stares at you for a moment before going back to sharpening her blade, ”…while I wouldn’t mind having you on your knees and kissing my feet, there is a slight problem with this idea.” The Shrimp doesn’t even look up when she speaks, clearly more interested in her blade right now. Still, you ask, ”…and that is?” Suddenly, the blade is back to being pressed against your throat, as she gives you a death glare while shouting, ”That’s still not a bet, you imbecill! I’m starting to lose my patience, lizard… so either start doing as I ask or I’ll feed you to the fishes!”
>"I bet you can't have sex with me within the next three minutes."
”…really?” you smile sheepishly, ”Um… it’s a bet, right?” which seems to make her calm down a bit, as instead of screaming she sighs, ”You have to be the biggest fool I’ve ever met.”

”Seeing that you clearly can’t come up with a bet, I’ll simply have to make one for you!” she states as she starts looking over her cutlass, ”How about this… you said you wanted to dance, right? Well, I bet that you can’t do a strip tease so interesting that I can’t focus on the coming game.” The captain holds up the sword in front of her, turning it so that the tip is pointing towards the ceiling, ”Or… I bet I can make you blow your load before the match is over, even without undressing myself… I might also bet that you can’t run around the whole arena building completely naked without being captured by security, be it the Arena’s or the colony one.” she lowers the cutlass slightly as she looks back at you, ”Of course, if you don’t want to make any bets at all, then maybe you can do me a favor instead. If you wish, you can join the match that’s about to begin as an even more last minute sing up. Your goal will not be to win… but to make sure both your sister and number 3 don’t. Because if the eels think number 3 will win then I want them to be wrong.” SilverEye swings her sword right in front of your eyes… and you watch as a single strand of green hair slowly falls to the ground, ”So what will it? Which bet do you think you can win? …or would you rather do that favor for me, scallywag?”

The fact that she's mentioning that she knows about you and your sister shows that she's got eyes around this town. But the fact that she didn’t mention you hacked the chip dispenser system means that she's got some blind spots.

>terrible bets
Ok, how exactly are you the smart sibling? Couldn't you think of anything better than that?

>I bet I can make you blow your load before the match is over, even without undressing myself…
Take that bet. In order for her to win, she has to make you blow your load without undressing herself. For you to win, you can't blow your load or you blow your load after she removes an article of clothing.

Don't mention this out loud to her, but if she happens to remove her hat, that counts as her undressing, so if she makes you cum, you'll still win the bet!

Also, can you remotely hack things? Maybe short out her eye and arm? If you're lucky, shorting out her eye will also zap her brain, which will knock her out.

You could work a strip tease. The trick is to make it interesting to her, as appeal to her interests or kinks. You've been watching her for how long? You must have picked up something.

She does like to swing that sword around. How attached are you to your clothes, and are you at dodging? Is she any good with swordplay? If she has lots of pride in it but she lands a knick on you anyway, you could invalidate the bet.

>>1050882
>In order for her to win, she has to make you blow your load without undressing herself. For you to win, you can't blow your load or you blow your load after she removes an article of clothing.
I like this too, and not just because I want to see her do a footjob. (She has, like, four of them.) It's a great workaround for the issue of him being the worse fighter than his sister and thus unlikely to have more endurance than her. It'd be a terrible bet at face value, otherwise.

She's still unlikely to take off the hat, though. Pirates love their hats. If we could do change the wording without her noticing, changing "undressing herself" to "getting undressed" would give us more to work with.

As fun as it might be, you won’t be a slave to a pirate captain for a whole month just to see who wins this stupid tournament. Besides, you are already betting on who will win the match that’s about to start, which is enough.
>Ok, how exactly are you the smart sibling? Couldn't you think of anything better than that?
Hey! A very sharp piece of metal right in front of your snout made it a bit hard to think, alright? That and the cute shrimp. Not that being smarter that sis is a high bar to pass…

>The fact that she's mentioning that she knows about you and your sister shows that she's got eyes around this town.
To be fair, a lot of people probably know about the two weird aliens crashing a ship by now, though it does mean she got people on the streets. Still, she has a few blind spots, as she didn’t know about your fake chips. Of course, nobody probably knows about your work with the dispenser.
>Can you remotely hack things? Maybe short out her eye and arm? If you're lucky, shorting out her eye will also zap her brain, which will knock her out.
Who would be stupid enough to make cybernetics that can be remotely accessed? But sure, if you can get a connection you can do some magic… but your magic takes time and isn’t really subtle.


>Striptease and then streaking around the building, if you pull it off that's like a double win! Otherwise go for the not cuming one.
”So… if I won more than two bets… would you go on a date with me?” you tell her as you wiggle your eyebrows, but she just gives you a stern look and flatly states, ”…no.” Oh well, it was worth a try… still, if you can get her to give you a footjob at least… ”…well, then I guess I… hmmm… I accept your bet! There is no way you can make me blow my load without even getting undressed before the match is over!” She gives you a coy smile before putting on a sultry tone, ”…why, aren’t you sneaky. I do like that, but you won’t get away with hornswoggling me, fool.” before she continues, she lifts up her sword so that it covers part of her face, ”The bet was that I weren’t to undress myself, scallywag… which means if you knock off my hat I won’t lose. Or if I accidently knock it off myself.” Looking at her hat, with the coral part and everything, you can’t help but ask, ”Wait, you aren’t going to remove your hat?” The Captain smirks, ”The hat stays on. Always.” SilverEye change her stance slightly, as if she’s aiming for something, ”So the rules are… I can’t undress, though if any accidents occur, or if you do anything to strip me, it won’t count. Of course, I will try to redress myself as soon as I can. Can’t blow a cute guy without my hat after all.” For a few moments, she just looks you up and down before quietly telling you, ”Now, stand completely still… or I might draw some blood.”

:RaolmeCommSO: We’re here to entertain all… 12 of our watchers here tonight, though mostly we’re doing this to give Kassa here some experience before the real tournament.
:MrrghCommSO: Of course, this doesn’t mean we’ll do our best to keep you interested!
:RaolmeCommSO: And the game has begun! Everyone has spread out without seemingly any real plan, indicating that most of these chumps probably won’t qualify! Only contender number 3 seems to know what he is doing!
:MrrghCommSO: But there is one contender of interest here, Xolin. Contender number 5, Scorch the Sakkilain! That’s right, a whole new species never seen before have joined our game tonight! Still… she seems rather confused on what to do… hopefully, she’ll give us a real show tonight, folks!

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

It takes half a minute of fumbling around before you get your bearings. Just a minute ago you were standing next to the other contenders in a large room filled with odd, blue rectangles but then all the sudden you find yourself here, in this… whatever this place is. Looking around, you can see several passages out of this room… as well as a stairwell to the lower floor... and then there’s this weird floating purple thing down there… which you think is one of those power ups the nice Nox lady mentioned? Either way, you’re a bit lost…

Checking your equipment, you make sure both your Lazpistol and Flamer is working properly, as well as your armor. The Lazpistol, while having a slow firing rate, is extremely accurate and powerful for its size. The flame meanwhile is deadly at short range, and as it is built into your armor it’s both easy and quick to use… even if it needs several seconds to reload after each burst. Finally, your power armor… it makes you harder, better, faster and even stronger… and would normally protect you a bit as well, but you’ve been told all clothes and armors are equally durable in here.

Right… let’s win this… um… thing… somehow… and why does it smell like spring in here?

... Both herself and her reactions are really cute. If you can get her into it and distracted, she might strip something without thinking. You rocking a robo dick? Being at least a little genuine might help.

Scorch, do you think you can safely tuck and roll a landing down to that glowing hologram? Looks to be a tool and having it is better than an enemy having it. If you can't, get some cover behind a pillar, and be ready to shoot down on someone, cause there is a shadow approaching below from the left.

If you're lucky, she'll be really curious on how you feel inside her and she'll strip herself in order to fuck you, which will allow you to win the bet! Or maybe the tournament will be over so quickly, she doesn't even get a chance to properly suck you off!

Then you just have to get really lucky and hope your sister doesn't somehow screw things up and cause Number 3 to lose!

Since you didn't read the manual, remember the lady said stripping and screwing are one point each. Not only does that means you have to close in even if you snipe a shot, you could "kill-steal" after a big fight.

Keeping an eye out for cameras too. For the sweet shots, they will be pointed at traps, or bonus point spots. The casuals could use them to puff up their pornstar resumes too. You see them, you could join them. I know you're not into them, but it would be professional to learn to fake it. They're also pros, they'll understand.

>why does it smell like spring in here?
Vine trap. There's gas around the pick up too. Ready your flamer. Spare a thought for the poor (Uredo?) employee the arena assigned to it.

Think you could learn to track people by smell? The only one you'd know is insect dork, but still...

The game seems to be all about humiliating your opponents, which you love. Though, you better be careful, as the match doesn’t stop even as you’re trying to get your prey to orgasm.
>Keeping an eye out for cameras too. For the sweet shots, they will be pointed at traps, or bonus point spots.
There were these small, flying drones that started following all of you as you entered this place, but as the holographic arena sprang up around you they just kinda disappeared. So you can only guess those where the cameras and they are around here somewhere? Still, you’re surprised how embarrassed you’re getting just thinking about having and audience for this… you’re no real pornstar, after all, so a part of you rather not get humiliated in front of a crowd.

>Scorch, do you think you can safely tuck and roll a landing down to that glowing hologram? Looks to be a tool and having it is better than an enemy having it.
Tucking and rolling are for weaklings! You’ll do a fucking three point landing with this suit! Preferable atop of someone as well!
>Vine trap. There's gas around the pick up too.
Hmm… you can’t see any vines… but there is this cloud of… whatever that shit is. It almost looks like those things that fall from trees during spring… and smell like them to? Kinda reminds you of a Uredo, though you’re sure there aren’t any of those freaks in this galaxy.


>Ready your flamer.
Ready? You’re fucking using it! Whatever that cloud shit is it deserves to burn! Lifting up your arm, you use the neural interface to deploy and fire your flamer, making it shoot out a long stream of flame before exploding into… HOLY SHIT! The whole fucking cloud just went up in flames!

:MrrghCommSO: Would you look at that explosion! It seems our new contender the Outlaw Queen isn’t so wet behind the cap that she walks right into a trap, Xolin!
:RaolmeCommSO: Those spores of yours react rather spectacularly when combined with fire, Kassa.
:MrrghCommSO: And going by the size of lady Phoenix spore bags, she got plenty more of it to give!

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!
:RaolmeCommSO: This might be the end of Urak Vol’s short career folks!

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.

That night just be a camera drone. Is it a camera drone?

>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.

>"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!

>Invisible nerd (Ba'taq) detected by that pillar in front of you.
Shoot him so he loses his invisibility and gives the mushroom lady another target to attack instead of focusing only on us!

>convince him to help
After how he said he wants to humiliate us, I don't think he'll want to team up.

No, that is definitely the bug guy that Scorch was bullying earlier.

Watch out for the invisible nerd right in front of you.
