Now exiting dormant state due to arrival on Wur.

Hey. After you said you were going dormant, your device said it too, and then I guess you did. Now that we've landed it said it was reactivating. You there?

Ah, you are there. Cool.
I wasn't stopped on my way in here! Off the craft and through the scanners with no problems. That's good. And the atmosphere here's no problem for me, at least if I stay in the right areas. Also I've been feeling a little different. Like, better than when we left. Did you do something?

Yeah it's a [[spacious area with a giant viewing window, usually with branching corridors]]. You see them a lot in locations when you get off of spacecraft. It gives you a chance to see what it's like where you are, and uh, walk to places. I'm going to walk places for now!

Just walkin'. Maybe a little tired. It's getting late where I live.

It went well.

Sounds good.

This action only requires an impulse weight of one. registered 3 toward this action, with result that very good purchase is acquired on Narus' shoulder and no one else but Narus notices the transformation.

Can you do that? It might be a good idea... If you can. I'd try it somewhere not so obvious, though, not right now!

Sort of looks... Dessen-y, when it looks like a Cyral. The eyes especially. I don't know how you'd get eyes like that without not actually being a Cyral. Except like, Dessen doesn't make it so obvious.
That looks Dessen-like too, and that does seem to be my room. But there's red light coming from outside? Weird.
Doesn't look that much like an eye to me!
I totally can't make much sense of that.

Anything interesting happen with YOU while you were out?

No. 162394 ID: 7524b0

You feel a little 'better' because we did some non-invasive optimization. Just kinda made your body work better. Not to any large extent, mind you.

Why don't we check out some brochures? Pass through the food court first to see what they're eating. Are you hungry at all?

As for us, well... Stuff happened, I guess. There was an important ruling that might let companies make our internet more expensive and restrictive and really no fun. Hopefully not.
No. 162395 ID: 7524b0

Good idea. If we can go full stealth we shouldn't have to worry about being attacked again. [supporting]

We might want to figure out who those dudes were though, so we can take the fight to them instead of just running off and hiding.

Ok so now that I'm here I should call Caplisk... That's not her actual name but I can pronounce it. Her real name is like a bunch of crazy sounds I can't make. She's native to this planet.
Narus pulls his phone out again and calls Caplisk
)Narus. You're on my planet!(
"Yes! are you well, Caplisk?"
)I am well. Are you? What brings you here?(
"I am well. And about that... Could we possibly meet? I know it's sudden but I'd rather talk to you in person."
)You have my address, and you can take a teleport to near my house. How's that, yeah?(
"Good idea. Are you there now?"
)I'm out. I'll be back in [[a few hours]]. You could come starting around then.(
"Ok. I'll try to be there. I hope this isn't too sudden."
)It is nice to have friends visit. We'll see each other then.(
"Be well."
)And you.(
he puts the phone back

The system the phones use was set up with help from the Cramakc on a bunch of worlds, so the same phone I use on Uis works here on Wur too! Those guys are pretty awesome.

Uhhhhh. Is that... a pop-culture reference?

I still feel just as lazy. Just... I dunno. Also I really really don't want you to mess with the way I think. At all. You never have permission to do that unless I specifically ask for it, ok?

Hmmm. You should ask for my permission before changing me around!

Ok. I'll do that. I'm... a little hungry. Maybe I'll have a snack.

Aw man, that sounds bogus... I hope it works out well for you. Internets should be great things.

No. 162541 ID: 7524b0

Ah, um. Sorry for messing with you without permission. It wasn't really making anything different, just... better. Actually I'm not sure if we managed to affect you noticably in that respect. It said "just barely". Oh come to think of it there was a more noticeable, separate change of restoring bodily circulation and such. That's probably why you feel 'better'.

We're definitely not going to change the way you think. I will strongly oppose that, in any case.

That's some interesting looking food. What's the stuff in the top-right?
No. 162557 ID: 9a1fa4

At least they were positive changes... Even so, always check with me first.

That's good. I hope you aren't the only one who would oppose it.

...I uh... don't know what any of it is really. Some kind of base with different foodstuffs put on it to lend different flavours I think.


method was based on detection of spassitude

Alright, we probably don't have time to visit more than one place before going to Caplisk's house. We've got this giant crevice that's pretty cool but they're on like every planet pretty much, a [[native botanical garden equivalent]] that was very nice last time I was here, a giant art gallery that I'll probably want to visit when I have more time, an old nuclear power facility tour thing, a spacecraft factory tour thing, and an abandoned insane asylum guided tour that's only for mature people like me. Spooky. Those are all close enough to teleport to without paying much. I can see if there's more stuff around here if none of that interests you, but I don't want to go too far.
No. 164038 ID: 0b2a05

>Define "spassitude"

Check out the [[native botanical garden equivalent]] Narus, that sounds fun. Unless you would want to with Caplisk later, in which case spaceships.
No. 164044 ID: 1ac39d

hmmm, the nuclear plant and the asylum both sound good. at the plant we may be able to scrape some radioactive isotopes that haven't decayed yet and get a one-shot fusion blaster.

the asylum would be neat because we may be able to make some ghost busting gear and purge the place.
No. 164048 ID: 288dda

>I doubt we could change how you think, really all we did was balance your chemicals a bit more.

Of course, thought is simple a cascading series of chemical processes - simple mechanical processes over which we hold complete dominion when we feel the need. Not that we feel any temptation to abuse this! We will continue to work in your best interests! Haha!

On a completely unrelated note, I bet that we could use our extradimensional capabilities to teleport you without using commercial transit. Or produce quantities of the local currency, if you would find that easier.

I would prefer to visit the art museum, but given our time constraints the nuclear facility appears to be the second most attractive option.
No. 164057 ID: 7524b0

Spassitude is a direction in the 4th dimension. Basically, they found us because we're multidimensional.

[prevent future detection via that method]

I'm kinda interested in the Asylum. Insanity is a popular theme amongst us in here.
No. 164058 ID: 1ac39d

agree, +1 to hiding our signature in that direction.
No. 164095 ID: 701a19

No, you won't. Nuclear plants are designed to keep the isotopes INSIDE, and we would need to breach containment to get at them.

Completely aside from that, your understanding of nuclear physics seems to be drawn from comic books. There is no logical reason why we should visit a nuclear plant.

Also, +1 to hiding our signature.
No. 164107 ID: 7524b0

Aside from... wanting to see a nuclear plant, you mean.

Regardless of how nuclear weapons work, we'd be able to make one without needing any material. We seem to be able to just make energy out of nothing.

I would assume that nearly all solid, tectonically-active planets have several points where multiple layers of surface strata are visible due to erosion or other processes. Seen one large-scale canyon, you've seen them all.

Narus, if you could indulge my curiosity. This is a artist's rendition, based primarily on collected radio data, of what you might call our "home" galaxy. Does it look familiar?

You seem to be slipping down my arm. Also you've been getting larger. See if you can shrink. You might be able to stay perched better.



I don't think there are going to be ghosts there, dude. That would definitely make it spookier, but... it doesn't say anything about ghosts in the thingy here. Don't do anything that would make US seem like we belong in asylums. That would be way not cool.


I'm actually going to stick with the local transports for now... Teleportation's a tricky thing sometimes, and we can see that these ones are reliable.

Hm. Good to know.

Yeah... I was getting that kind of impression.

impulse weight registered (4) is insufficient to detect whether or not itself is sufficient to perform this task.action is attempted to be carried out regardless.shifting mass to vacant alternate perpendicular axis

Aha, so you have nuclear plants and are still using them? Neat.

You have comic books too! I've read a lot. I tried to make some but they weren't very good...

Yeah, like that. They're interesting and all, but this one doesn't look unusual, and I've seen several.

Hmm. Not particularly. I don't think I'd recognize my own galaxy if I saw it from the outside, though. Or even most parts of the inside.

I say we go to the asylum! They've got a tour starting soonish, after all. Onward...

Narus finds a teleportation booth and uses it to reach the asylum, which is in a rather physically isolated spot. Some of the people are the native intelligent species, there are a few Silirw, and there are a few other species. There is a wheeled robot with cameras on poles sticking out of the top. Narus walks toward this congregation

)...inside. Welcome, friend Cyral!( he addresses Narus
)I am Zeeister, the guide for this tour. Is that what you're here for?(
"Well met. Yep, that's why I'm here!"
)Excellent. Payment is over there, yeah.( He gestures to a place with some people and lots of machines which presumably accept different forms of currency.
)The tour begins in [[~11 minuntes]].(
Narus acknowledges, goes and makes his payment, then walks back sporting a wristband.

"Hey." says a female Cyral. "I saw you on the spaceflight on the way here. With your... pet."

Shifting mass is not a very effective method of 'hiding', let's reverse that.

This place should be fun.
No. 167414 ID: 7524b0

Shifting mass on a multidimensional level can hide us. Their detection devices might not be able to see very much of the spassitude, and we just happened to be occupying a space they were looking at.

We need more impulse weight on both figuring out how they detected us, and on evading that detection.
No. 167494 ID: 3b6c92

Impulse to both of these.

Also, Narus, why not talk to somebody that isn't the crazy voices that mostly only talk to you? Tell her whatever you feel like telling her, about us or otherwise. We're not gonna do your thinking for you (and you probably don't want us to anyway in this case). :B

Good to have a warning.

Yeah, no reason not to talk to her. I can't stop you from suggesting whatever you want, though!

impulse weight registered (2) is insufficient to perform this task

"I am well. Are you?"
"Yes! May I lick you?"
"You may. May I lick you?" he licks her neck lightly with both tongues
"Yes." she licks his neck lightly with both tongues

Hm. Good taste.
Oh, that's a common practice for Silirw-Silirw first-time meetings, especially among Cyrals. Looks like she wants to be friends!

I think I'll skip on the name for now. Her eyes don't seem that unusual, also.

Hmm. Eyes works, also body form, shape of ears or breathing structures... any part actually, as long as it's a particularly nice part of them. She's pretty, but I'm not sure what part-oh, I know. Women can be pleasing to any of the senses, so...

"You taste good."
"So do you."

Oho. Well, now.

Flirting... We don't really do that. Either we make it clear we want to, like, get together, or we don't!

this Cyral was on the flight.
hey wh-
-re you doing?

touching verifies that she is a Cyral.she is surprised

"They're pretty tactile, aren't they? At least they didn't do that thing like they did to you on the flight!"
"Yeah... I don't think you'd want that." I'm glad you didn't do that to her. Touching other people is something you shouldn't, like, do randomly, by the way. It can have... unintended interpretations and stuff. Not a huge problem just now, but like, don't do it.
"It looked really awkward."
"Yeah... They were just going to lick my leg but I guess they're like, not used to the body so it got all crazy."
"Oh, that was a lick? Wow... Ooh hey, so can they talk to me?" she seems earnestly excited
"I think so. Let's see..." Try talking to her telepathically. Like, while you're just sitting here on my shoulder. We can see if it works, especially now that you touched her. Did you see her thoughts, by the way?
No. 167744 ID: 7524b0

All we got was "-fe-" from that touch. So far we've had to be quite close to something to establish a link, and only one person at a time... but let's try it.

Well, assuming you can, you seem like a nice enough person. Hopefully we didn't weird you out too much with the random touching and the lick thing. When enough of our 'subroutines' agree on an action, it tends to get exaggerated.

That guy? Or maybe it's a girl... Hard to tell. Anyhow, looks to me like a Dibiul. I'm not too familiar with them... Keep to themselves, see?
Now Vemians, they're some odd folk. They talk even less,just a little more than a stone and less than a dead body. Other people talk about THEM. Underneath those shifty shapeless suits is some kinda mass of feelers and super-sensitive eyes... And they gotta keep in the suits, else they might die. At least, on a lot of planets they do. Good choice for the position these ones are holding, I gotta say. I know I ain't steppin' outta line...
Dunno if you could tell, but our Vurod guide here has 2 mouths on the end of each arm and 2 vibrating structures on the branches comin' outta those arms. That's the way they're set up. The mouths can also be used to manipulate objects, because they've got these filaments in there to grab stuff, like. That, and the teeth and all. I guess it helped their ancestors to grab food or somethin', and it turned out useful for other things too. They can imitate just about any sound with enough practice like a big, smart mockingbird... with two heads. imagine that. They've got some of the best wave-related tech around, and they can vibrate ya to death even without it.

The angelic choir in Narus' head's gone back to being a robotic one.

That worked, excepting rare cases where the guests were a little bit wilier than the ones watching them. Notice, there are cracks in the walls we pass by. Many of those are from escape attempts, where the walls weren't quite fixed up right. You just can't always tell what someone's going to do... especially when you give them accessto information.

She was convinced that a physical object was creating it, but, there didn't seem to be one. Every day she wrote on the walls, about the pain it caused, and then wrote the same thing into her diary. On the day she died, she wrote 'The noise has stopped.' An autopsy showed that part of her brain had liquefied, seemingly hours before she died. On this time alone, what she wrote in her diary was different from what she wrote on the wall. She wrote 'the noise has left,' in the diary instead. Maybe it was just because her brain melted, or maybe there was really something there that they couldn't detect, and it exited, freeing her from its influence but killing her. There are some drawings here too. When asked what they were, she said that they were the thing in her head.(

"Probably a freaky brain tumour."

"That would be scary."
"Yeah... Oh." Obict presses her button

"What do YOU think was the cause of this?"

"Yeah, it sounds awful no matter what it was..."

Some of the guests here took advantage of this. Some of them found other things to use as weapons.

"Well didn't they... clean up the blood?"
)Of course. To get this bad, it took a lot of blood. Sometimes the rooms would be used for [[hours]] at a time, and there was not enough time for them to remove the blood before it hardened and it became impossible to completely remove the stains. What is the next question?(
"Why is there a big hole?"

|The things you encountered on the spaceflight are Fervylis. Aliens from another universe. Their goal is to take over this one, starting at Uis for some reason. Seems Uis is randomly a hotspot for freaky aliens right now. The initial explosions of apparent magnetism were from Fervylis ships transporting into Uis' atmosphere, much like the smaller one on the spaceflight. As for the device, I don't know where it came from. It is a trinket. I have seen similar things before. It will definitely make your life more interesting if you keep it around. This particular one has a secret that greatly amuses me, but I won't tell you what it is. The humans whose voices you hear from it do not completely understand their power either. It's really best that you figure it out yourselves.

It's highly taboo to consume creatures that are still alive, assuming it's not outright illegal.

No. 268414 ID: 1854db

Many humans eat raw oysters, which are still alive. They don't really... move though. I think that's the only case where that's true, aside from vegetation. Eating larger animals while they're still alive tends to be taboo... However there are many predators on our planet, so it's not like it's completely unknown to us.

Also considering that food here would look nothing like the animals we have on Earth I doubt it would really be disturbing... I think half the reason why it's taboo is that it's considered cruel, the other half is because 'civilized' meals on our planet are prepared beforehand. Chopped up, at least. Uh I dunno, is this enough information?
No. 268446 ID: 70d9eb

If it doesn't have a cerebral cortex it's fine to eat alive, there's a lot of seafood that is eaten alive (especially in Asia), and it's certainly not illegal. There's also some delicious over-fermented sheep cheese that's covered in live maggots called Casu Marzu.
No. 268454 ID: 701a19

Casu Marzu is illegal in plenty of countries, albeit due to health codes.

While you're eating, let us, the voices inside a strange device thing shaped like a ball, consider what we can do here.

We need information on the Fervylis. We intend to board one of their ships, so if we could get schematics, details, operating guidelines, anything that could help. We've already proven to have an effective means of dispatching them when they're unaware we're a threat, but it's not certain the same trick will work twice.

Narus is able to use the weapon
No. 290283 ID: 1854db

Alright... There's three small medium-security ships that have a bunch of troops in them we could go fight. There's one medium-security ship with... nothing of interest I suppose. There's the big high-security ship that has something called a Maxten in it? Up to you where we go to. I think we have a good chance of winning in a heated firefight with very little injury, if you're worried.

No. 290512 ID: 3e6377

I think notifying Narus of items fabricated is wise. If it's ever unwise we can declare notifying to stop happening at that time.

Narus, we created a shield device. It should cover about 90 degrees in front of you and block attacks and deflect projectiles. With the duplicated alien weapon, you should be able to stand a fighting chance if things go a little awry.

If they go a lot awry, uh, we're working on it. It's probably for the best to go for the smaller medium-security ships based on that reason. But...

+1 IW to determining what a Maxten is and what function it serves.

It might be more useful to go after the Maxten.

+1 IW to either continuing to hide Narus' presence from scanning systems or if we haven't already done it stating to hide his presence.

Maxten... Ooh that's familiar wait. Uhh... In the first Fervylis thing you saw! In the spaceflight. It was the name, of, a Fervylis I think. It's in the records of your device. I pick the medium ship for now, then the high one. Very little injury sounds good enough.
Narus is correct about Maxten

Anciu: Is this working? Are you receiving?
Narus: Yes what um?
Obict: Huh?
Dessen: Hey guys.
Narus: Dudes. Ok. Obict I have to drop you out for a moment. Anciu, what?
Anciu: Ah, ehm, we figured out that those magnetic disturbances yesterday were caused by spacecraft teleporting into the atmosphere.
Narus: Oh. I'm looking at some of them right now. I think.
Anciu: You are? What's going on?
Narus explains the situation

Alright, looks like we should do alright by teleporting in at the empty, important-looking room 'k', destroying whatever purpose that room serves, and then teleporting out.

What I was thinking was, if we could take out the troop ships, uh, then they wouldn't be able to defend the high security one. If that room is the key then I think that's a good plan.

That's worrying. How about that shield thing? Will that be more effective?

Hmm, well, the armor film does protect you a bit- the projectiles don't go very deep. I'll check the shield. Maybe we can make you an additional layer of armor in the form of loose-fitting clothes? Keep in mind that we can reactively create shields ourselves like we did in the earlier fight. Hmm, maybe we can just continuously project an air-permeable shield bubble around you?
At any rate, we are probably ready. If we have any trouble we can just keep making things as we go.

Hmm. We didn't manage to hide your eyes. I bet if you closed them you'd be fine though, right? How about we give you a mental image of your surroundings while your eyes are closed?
