Now exiting dormant state

While that Narus is asleep, I thought you might like to accompany me, as I do not sleep. Perhaps we can get to know each other better. Presently you are with a part of me that is far away from Narus.

We can spy on someone somewhere, play pranks, make friends, prey... As long as it has nothing to do with the affairs of Uis or its inhabitants. What would you like?

what is the name of the quest again?
No. 187459 ID: a594b9

Oooh, finding out the origin of the device sounds good. Then again that might fall under 'affairs of Narus' so...

Hmmmmm. What about our world? Earth. Are you capable of complete stealth? I imagine it would cause quite a stir if anyone detected us.

What we must do is find a civilization that is newly beginning, late stone age or early bronze, where the foundations of science are just taking hold... and influence them, become a god that they worship, a source of their wisdom and morality.

Look at the Inside The Quest thread.
I will see what I can do. At this moment, that is not an option.
You would probably know it as "Narus' Quest."
You wouldn't learn much from going there, and you can't fully percieve it besides.
Your world... I can take you to fantastical facsimiles of Earth, but I cannot take you to the place as you know it. Do note that I am not omnipotent, nor omniscient. I will do my best to take you to wherever you would like, as long as I do not find it objectionable.
I come from many places.

I've done things like that before. Let's.

Can you shapeshift? If so, appear before them as an extremely tall version of their own species, clad in spectacular clothing. Speak loudly, and tell them that you are here to "make sure the time-stream remains intact", and they should "IGNORE ME". Make sure you say "IGNORE ME!" a bit louder than the rest of your speech.

Pick one at random and follow them around. If they start to converse with you or otherwise acknowledge your existence, simply say "IGNORE ME!"

But it seems we'll go with a pop-cultural reference...? Yes, I can shapeshift. It should be noted that I do not like to speak vocally. I will make do with mental communication, but they will perceive it as vocal.

"A giant!?"
"[[holy shit]]!"
|IGNORE ME! I'm here to make sure the time-stream remains intact.|
"Uhh-"Dessen walks behind another random person, who tries to ignore it but is having difficulty doing so
"Uhhh so anyway Jop and I were in the neighboring [[multiple-building structure]] and Ilek said he would offer himself for the next sacrifice..."<I hope this giant goes away...>

The others are having thoughts similar to his They are all extremely confused.

This is but one civilisation. We can affect others in different ways.
I am aware. Your device decided to name it like this.
It would be "Dessen's," I think. Possessive.

Demand to know what the meaning of this sacrifice is, and who or what it is being made to.
Once the explanation has been received, politely explain that you frown upon such sacrifices and they should cease.

I'm going to show you a few of your device's features while we're here. Don't be surprised.
Dessen begins to eat something cakelike
"Ilek? I guess we have other craftspeople."<What's that giant eating? That food wasn't there before. Is this a test from the gods?>
"Jop seems convinced that Heama will be pleased, and I'd say he's a better choice than Nosc..."<What's that smell?>
"Nobody thinks N-...Nosc is a good choice. There's nothing to her! She's young, too."<what in the name of the gods is going on WHAT IS GOING ON IS HE EATING!?>
someone walks in. "Did I hear-WHOAH that guy's tall and who is this?"
|IGNORE ME!| Dessen eats more in a very conspicuous manner, dropping crumbs all over the place.the person he is standing behind looks increasingly distressed
"Um." the person walks back out

I will consider that. However, if Ilek is the sacrifice, he will not make a useful ally. Nor will Nosc.

I can tell you that it is very glitchy. Already there has been at least 1 errors in transcription.

You can think of it that way. I am carrying your device with me.
I imagine that will confuse them further.
|Sacrifice? That's not right at all. No, the time stream is already altered! Tell me more about these sacrifices.|
One of them ponders whether or not to respond to me.
he grimaces and says, "Aren't we supposed to ignore you?"
|I demand to know the meaning of this sacrifice, and who or what it is being made to.|
"Aaah Heama the Earth deity will destroy us unless we deliver a sacrifice!"
|These sacrifices must cease. Ones not directed to me, that is. Redirect your sacrifice to me.|
"We'll have to talk to Heama about that! I can uhhhh go ask right now."
Now... Do I tell him to IGNORE ME?
No. 194492 ID: 701a19

"I will speak to Heama directly. IGNORE ME!"
Most societies worship lesser beings than Time Lords, and we seem to be somewhere 'round that ballpark. Maybe we can convert Heama into a follower and send her back?
No. 194493 ID: 0b2a05

Hey Dessen what does sacrifice mean in this instance?

And who the hell is Heama?

...Talking to it directly actually sounds kind of interesting, depending on what it is.
No. 194557 ID: a594b9

Oooh. Hey, if you know about our features... can you explain in simple terms what [[unable to translate]] does? We basically understand that it does some kind of... chaotic scrambling of matter that looks like it's boiling, but... I dunno, seems like there's a little more to it than that.

These people believe Heama exists, but until we visit the sacrificial pit, we won't know if that's true or not.
They are going to toss someone into a pit where the person will be eaten.
Heama is an Earth deity, like the fellow said.
Yes, let's do that.
Dessen leaves for the pit
Even as I appproach Heama, they discuss the matter of my presence. One of them has been following me.
The basic idea is that it grinds pieces of space into nearby pieces, folding them together.

There is something intelligent living in this pit.

|Hey. What's going on down there?|
I'm too far for Heama to hear me.
Sure, let's go. it does
The one who was following me is now convinced that I must be an avatar of some god. I'm too large and outlandish for any other explanation.
Heama dug a system of tunnels. It's quite extensive.
I'm not sure what you're getting at, exactly.

it lands on the ground of a tunnel almost softly due to its body's surface area/mass ratio and positioning, then gets up. |Hey. What's going on down here?|
<whaaat> "What?"

Heama is confused. Any observations by senses say that I am one of the creatures from the surface. My garb and size throw that into doubt.
No. 197011 ID: 0b2a05

Hey, could you ask it to stop eating people in ways that kill them? Cuz that's not cool.
No. 197017 ID: 059120

Dessen don't you regularly eat people in ways that kill them? I mean, not that I don't want it to stop, it would just be nice if you weren't being a hypocrite about it. Because you stopped eating people too.

I don't think there's any point in keeping up this pop reference when talking to Heama. Go for something a bit stranger, more intimidating. Maybe something like this?

Introduce yourself as... an Outsider. Ask it what purpose it serves on this world, and why the surface dwellers sacrifice to it.

Yes, I could do that.
Two of this question. Interesting. I eat people in ways that kill them very irregularly, and infrequently. I only do so when I feel that it is appropriate, except for the times when my hunger overpowers me. It doesn't seem hypocritical to me to ask Heama to stop. A problem is that regular sacrificies are a major source of nutrients that are hard to find elsewhere.
it changes shape over the course of a few seconds.faster than you could do it.Heama's mind is altered to feel as if Dessen had always had its current form
|I am an Outsider. What is your place in this world? Why do the surface-dwellers sacrifice to you?|

<strange thing>"Thing. I am a tunneler. I will destroy their structures otherwise. Are there other Outsiders?"
No. 204776 ID: df7322

oh so it has the old fashioned regular threat of destruction. which always fails in the long term due to the fact that one day the populace get's tired of that shit.let's see how it like's getting eaten!
No. 204777 ID: 0b2a05

People shouldn't be major sources of nutrients, that's just... dumb. There has to be alternatives. How about dead people, why do they have to be alive? If not that, maybe an invasive plant species they can help take care of? Possibly introduced?
No. 204797 ID: a594b9

Eat it? I'm not sure we should. This thing could be the last of its kind or similarly rare.

Tell it that there are no other Outsiders here at the moment due to company protocol. Then ask it more about itself. Like, what exactly it is, and if there are others like it in this world. Ask if it could eat livestock or something instead of people.
No. 204799 ID: df7322

why would being rare make it not edible?
No. 204896 ID: c2c011

Tell it that there are, and you can call them to you at a moments notice.

Then ask it why the sacrifices need to be alive. They would probably be alot more regular if they changed the burial customs to being eaten by him instead of whatever else they do.

All things fail in the long term. This particular one would probably go on for a long time.
I should eat something before you return to Narus. The something doesn't have to be Heama.
They don't have to be alive.
|There are no other outsiders here right now because of protocol. They can be summoned. Are there other tunnelers?|
"There are other tunnelers."
|Can you eat other things instead of people?|
"Yes." <why> "Why are you here?"
|I've come to end the live sacrifices. You don't care what you eat as long as it tastes good and you have enough, yes?|
"Yessss. What will there be, instead of live sacrifices?"
|Dead sacrifices and Certain [[plant-equivalent]]s. Tell them at the next sacrifice.|
"Why should it change?"
No. 208637 ID: c2c011

Well yes all things fail eventually. But some fail more spectacularly and more painfully than others.

Anyway, tell it that it should change or else outsiders are going to find out how diggers taste.
No. 208638 ID: 0b2a05

Because killing people isn't nice, if there's a better alternative you should go with that. Specify that they die from natural causes, not killed for the sacrifice. Also they should probably take up farming of the [[plant-equivalent]]s in case their death rate drops. Viva agriculture!
No. 208647 ID: a594b9

The natives will be more cooperative if they do not need to sacrifice living beings. More food might be given, in fact. Eventually, the tunnelers and natives might be able to cooperate with eachother. Like, they could mine out mineral deposits and such in exchange for food. A more mutually beneficial relationship can last... well, longer than the current one anyway.

We can go to another place of civilisation on this planet, either of this civilisation or another. Alternately, we can go somewhere else entirely. The next designated time of sacrifice to Heama will not happen for a while. The sun will rise soon, and the people here will go to sleep.

Performing trophobiosis on a random xenophilic cutebold, hugging and traumatizing along the way… That sounds like fun. Here's one now, with a friend. The scariest (without being cruel) thing to start would be to sneak up on them and then suddenly make loud noises while adopting a frightening pose. Or perhaps I could assume the guise of a cutebold, run up and hug him, and turn into something else. Of course if you think you have a better idea, go ahead and say it.

specification of "giant" is an insufficient indicator of the scale intended.greater specificity required

"H..hiii!" The female is hugged.
"Hugs? eee!" The male (the xenophile) is brought into the hug. It's all quite delightful. I begin to rub their noses.
"Wha~! Who are you?" I don't respond to her question.
"hmmm~" I'm definitely not a cutebold now.

Soften her up, make her enjoy it despite herself... I suggest tickling! Not too much though, just a little bit. Wrap around her body a bit while you're at it just so she's surrounded by it all. Leave the guy a good view for now and we can pull him in later.
No. 217906 ID: e973f4

Come to think of it this is an okay idea too.

No. 217907 ID: a594b9

Tell them you're not going to hurt them... it's just a little fun. Allow the female to break free if she insists.

Earlier when you said prey, did you mean willing donors (like perhaps this one), or like, hunting animals that wouldn't be considered people?
No. 217908 ID: f9649b

I'm going to have to agree with Typo again. Fulfilling others' fantasies sounds like fun, as long as you're comfortable with it!

I wouldn't suggest restraining the female, as causing people unwanted sexual pleasure (or giving unwanted sexual contact) is highly unethical by my standards.
No. 217932 ID: 40cb26

Thus the tickling, show her we're trying to give her a good time. By surrounding I meant being around her but not all the way and with some distance.

What can you tell about her tastes specifically? Cater to them if you can work it in.
No. 218035 ID: c2c011

Well this is certainly quite freaky. Just don't eat either of them, even if the male wants it to happen. Toy with him instead and don't make his dreams come true.

|I'm not going to hurt you! It's just a little fun.|
"I… like fun…" The female, Gdchralbis, responds. Kladaatrilus, the male, has a mind that is spinning too quickly for him to say anything.

As to your question, I meant both.
Alright. She's embarrassed, but doesn't know why, nor what to do. I'll give her a good tickling.
|Then you'll like this.|
Gdchralbis is no longer held, but is tickled.she laughs, a little concerned at first but then enjoying
Of course I can multitask! I'm being Narus' bed while we're doing this, as well as a few other things. He's so soft and warm… These kobolds are too, if a bit less so. It's nice.
Other than a lot of noserubbing, it wasn't a fleshed-out idea. I suppose I could incorporate that into something like what I usually do with my other trophobionts, like Narus. It would probably have been a sexual fantasy if he had some idea of what that was.
I like this line of thinking.
it engulfs most of Kladaatrilus, giving him a sensual massage with emphasis on the nose
"oooh~" He's trying hard to think of something to say. Silly kobold.
It's not my intention to make this into a sexual situation. She likes the tickling just fine, and I'll stop before she finds it unpleasant.
She's not picky with the species of friends… However, she would not consent to having some fluids sucked out. She's not the xenophile here, after all.
No, he certainly doesn't want to be eaten. He will be quite interested in this, however… it extracts some of his fluids, which makes him squeal in surprise
Delicious kobold juices… And now Gdchralbis has had enough tickling. I'll give her a moment to regain her breath.
Some other kobolds are coming to see what the commotion is about.

or... something.
No. 218906 ID: 40cb26

You could keep going a while despite the onlookers... or maybe you can do something to keep them from seeing this? Ask the female if she wants to have more fun, maybe give her a rub. Err, backrub.

Otherwise I think it's about time to wrap this up, you could have more fun with them but you don't want a big crowd. Give them a last bit of embrace, and then move them together before letting them go. Tell the male something along the lines of enjoying things like this is ok, but love those you are with. In whatever terms his simple mind can understand.
No. 219005 ID: 0b2a05

Nom nom cutebolds. The more you eat now, the less you'll have to eat later! Stick to nondamaging trophobiosis, yadda yadda you know the drill. Reach a tentaclething out and pull one or two in. Don't take too many or they might have difficulties getting food and such, but a few won't hurt.

Zynraex: What goes on?
Dessen: I'm eating. It might involve predation; I'll have to get direction as to whether or not that is acceptable.
Zynraex: Excellent. I hope it is. Care to join me afterward?
Dessen: We are on a mission of exploration, and not one you would be interested to participate in.
Zynraex: Unfortunate. Do let me know how your present endeavours go.
Dessen: I will.

You may talk to em, if you like.
The female runs away, but she's not scared or resentful. This is just a bit much for her. I have taken some fluid from the male, but he is just too small to provide much without damage. it releases him

Is it acceptable to eat cutebolds?
I think not.
I have no worry of capture. Nonetheless, this does seem like a good time to leave. Where to next, and first, what is the consensus on cutebold eating? There are plenty here.
No. 223405 ID: 40cb26

Well, yeah. These are simpler creatures, need some simple words for them. Wouldn't want to make them into some wacked out xeno-hugger cult. Probably.

No. 223407 ID: 0b2a05

Of course killing them isn't acceptable, they're people. Predation doesn't explicitly mean killing them though! If there's a lot of them you can drain a little from each to get more fluids without overall damaging them.

So you've never had apples... what about other fruit in general? How exactly do you use the fluids you drain?

What's the closest you can get to outright eating them without killing them? You should do that.
No. 223548 ID: a594b9

I don't think it is acceptable to fully-eat cutebolds. They're a bit dim but still... people. I think the others meant just... limiting it to the safe kind of fluid taking thing. I hope so anyway.

Proetelikesan? Tell us more about that? Or we could ask em. What kind of pronoun are you using? It is unfamiliar... Just the basics would be good. What type of creature, visual appearance, usual activities, mannerisms?

As for where to go next, how about... where you come from? If you don't want to do that, my second choice would be... hm. Can you survive in a black hole? I've always been curious about what's past the event horizon... Wait, would WE survive the trip? Maybe that's not such a good idea. Instead of that, how about we find a planet where a bunch of obviously decent people are fighting an army of nasty folk? Then we help fight the good fight!

That's an amusing thought.
I've not ingested what you call "fruit." There have been similar things which I have eaten, some that I have enjoyed.
As to these fluids, they are used largely to maintain control over myself. It's not as effective as devouring a victim, nor as satisfying, but certainly can be a worthwhile compromise. Particularly so when the other party is someone I would rather was not killed.
task completed.dessen eats the apple
Quite tasty. Not completely dissimilar to some things I have had before.

It seems there won't be death involved.
Zynraex: Now that is a pity. Why not?
Dessen: I'm taking some people from another universe on a tour, which they are directing. They don't seem to think it's acceptable.
Zynraex: Humph. Culture clash.
Dessen: It is so.

I'll just take a little bit from some of the kobolds. They won't even notice.
Someone did say they wanted to see more. You certainly didn't contest it. The meters are working just fine. Some of them are simply not applicable to the cutebold.
Proetelikesans have one sex, but it's not hermaphrodite. I'm using your neologistic "Spivak pronouns."
They look like large, dark, metal skeleton beasts with arms, legs, a tail, a torso, and an head. They have many sharp angles, and a culture that focuses greatly around death due to their harsh history. Ask Zynraex whatever you like.
I wouldn't say these kobolds are innocent. Some of them have seen battle, and blood. Experienced losses, hardships, et cetera. Some have even brought it upon others. They are simply, in large part, amoral.
Now we find nasty xenophilic dawwblins, trying to clear out a tunnel system that's already occupied. Should we infiltrate the goblins' ranks? Attempt to fit in with their opponents?
Why do you specifically want me to find goblins that are xenophilic?
No. 226696 ID: d677cc

That's a really creepy whatever that is there.

Uh, sure, try to fit into their ranks or something.

And I suspect the "xenophilic" aspect is because, um, no offense, but to your standard issue humanoid you're kinda freakin' weird, especially in the form we usually see you in, so it's I guess a way to try to work with that. Or something. I'm just going with whatever sounds funny, honestly.
No. 226713 ID: 0b2a05

You have control problems?

Anything you'd like to talk about?
No. 226736 ID: 40cb26

Transform and infiltrate, find and isolate one or more of the xenophiles. Then you want to not transform back completely, but extend a tentacle and wrap them up a bit.

If we come across their opponents we can probably just go ahead and eat them. No need to stop any other activities we may be engaging in. Check what they are first, they might be fun in other ways.

>I wouldn't say these kobolds are innocent.
Right, I meant more like "well developed sexual behaviors" The other aspects are a non-issue.

>Why do you specifically want me to find goblins that are xenophilic?
So that instead of trying to run away from you they'll cum to you. I mean come to you. Well... you certainly want both, right? It works out, trust me.

Y'know, you really ought to look up what a phrase like "fight the good fight" means before you throw it around and make it the POV character's goal.

It only has one meaning (look it up!), and that generally doesn't have much to do with a battlefield.
No. 226973 ID: a594b9


No, that is not the only meaning. It is generally used to mean fighting for what you believe in. Or just warfare in general, apparently: http://thesaurus.com/browse/warfare Plus, I didn't make it the POV character's goal. Like he said, he's giving us a tour. It's MY goal.

Yes, isn't it delightful?
They'll surely notice if a new goblin comes in. I could do something like go in and be invisible and intangible to them, but that's easy. You lot have had more experience with goblins than I. What are your thoughts for an approach?
I don't find your statement offensive.
There are circumstances that can cause me to go berserk if I am insufficiently fed. This goes unpleasantly. Fortunately, I greatly enjoy eating and it doesn't take a lot to secure control.
Have you missed an important detail? The goblins are the enemy here.
You may have gotten another wrong impression. It's not at all my desire to make this encounter a sexual one.
I do now. I can even perform some "miracles." What fun.
there is insufficient impulse weight to complete this task
Your impression is correct.
Yes, I think I can incorporate that plan into our agenda quite nicely.
Zynraex: I believe that Death is the only eternal. People simply do not exist after they die! Their bodies become used by other things, until Time succumbs to Death as well.
Now, now. There's no reason we can't do both.
A fine response! Most excellent. Our journey will start with the gnomes, and then we will infiltrate the goblins.

No. 239184 ID: c6fa0a

Religion is often said to be one of the greatest instigators of violence and injustice in modern human society. Therefore, one must assume that using religion for nefarious purposes is... easy. Child's play, if you will.

Therefore, I challenge you to create a religion that will do the opposite. Convince multiple species to be tolerant of each other, secular, and work together to make life better for all involved. Convince them to be diplomatic and tolerant, but yet not weak or pansyish. Create a superculture of peace and prosperity while still allowing ancient subcultures and (non-violent, non-discriminatory) traditions to flourish.

*That* sounds like a *real* challenge.

In the context of the goblins and gnomes... use this force to make peace and work together. Eliminate those who oppose peace if necessary, but always attempt rehabilitation first.

Zynraex: Ah, the multiple universes. You are correct on that count. I have no one favourite method of killing! Oh, I don't kill for fun. I kill for fulfillment, and it's a rare occasion. I observe the unfolding of events for fun.
Dessen: I'll take your idea into account.

No. 241689 ID: c6fa0a

The Flood sounds like it could be particularly thrilling for gnomes - however, it might not be very threatening to them if they can just phase through solid rock...

It may actually be a bad idea to use Old Testament legends on them, since they wouldn't know anything about them, and on the whole they're just pretty silly.

Maybe a little about the wisdom of Jesus, adapted to a gnomic audience?

And a temporal disturbance sounds fine. You're doing a pretty bang-up job on your own, and it might be fun to see what you do while we're away. You have to admit that it can be fun to be surprised from time to time. :)

Zynraex: We have some cities, which are mostly for the tourists. We often prefer very spread-out communities. Our architecture, by and large, is carved out of the walls of deep caves, with vast, intricate etchings and glowing paints. The cities have more structural and decorative pieces combined with the carved parts. Along with that, more electric lighting. That's the "modern" look. It looks nice, in my opinion. I have killed an alien before, who had attacked me as part of some deadly ritual. It knew what it was getting into. My other kills have been, nearly to the point of exclusion, accidental crushings of tiny creatures, and hunting for food. We've many other ways to acquire food, and yet we do that sometimes. Killing is a part of us.

Dessen: Jesus and eventual time travel it is.
|I will tell you a story written by a man named Jesus. He has his own important part to play in the scheme of things other than as a storyteller, but I'll save that for another time. This first story is short and to the point: Lazarus was a poor guy who people thought was dead because he was poor. But then he found some money and everyone thought he came back to life. That parable illustrates the idea that people are dumb.|
this is met with chuckles
|Actually, there's a lot of resurrection involved in this book. Jesus can be resurrected with the proper setup, but no-one's gotten it exactly right for a long time. For example, in the far-off land of Egypt, King Ramses tried to resurrect Jesus in an event called the Exodus. He needed frankincense, but he accidentally used the wrong ingredient... Frankenstein.|
the gnomes don't know what to think, but the absurdity of the situation makes them laugh more
|Instead of Jesus, this summoned An entity of immense power that had once been sealed away... The Forbidden One. And it Obliterated. That was the end of the Egyptian civilisation.|
"What's the lesson in THAT one?" It's another gnome.
|ALWAYS read the recipe.|
"You hear that, Verne?" from the distance in the caves, comes the reply "Shut it!"
some gnomes laugh.others merely roll there eyes
"You're alright, James. But do you believe this stuff?"
|I wouldn't interpret it all literally. Supposedly this was transcribed from a time when God's hand appeared and wrote it on a wall, but who knows? The lessons are good anyway.|

"You've come at a funny time. It's these goblins, want our caves. PAH! Been pestering us for a while; that's all they can do. You a fighter?"
|Sure, I'm willing to assist. Anyone want to read this book meanwhile?|
"Here, I'll take it," a gnome comes out from the shadows to claim the book.another gnome comes up
"Come with me, and I'll show ya what you can do."
|Sure thing. Coming, Lester?| I know he isn't. He's just the doorman. However, he'd expect me not to know that.
"I'm just the doorman. But maybe we can share a drink after ye give those goblins what-for."
|Fine plan.|
Dessen is led to where the goblins are making their attack, and debriefed along the way
"They just showed up one day and tried to claim our home. Nasty creatures. Being they're just a nuisance, we don't want to kill them, but if that's what it takes to get them to leave, why, that's exactly what'll we do. And diplomacy hasn't done anything for us. So we've been holding 'em back until they leave. Come back every time. You said you're a fighter? You seem more like a talker to me." the sound of explosions and commotions grows louder
