Okay. New world, new tricks. The location of my tower is in a forest, pretty close to a sea.
It is summer here I guess. Sunny, warm etc.
So, I felt like going to scout a little with Helena. There was a town pretty near-by, so I decided to pay it a visit.

Everyone is fucking staring at me. Is it my clothing? I tried to take as proper clothing as I could based on the view I got from my tower.
Aaaa. What to do?!
No. 270902 ID: daeb45

You stand out.


It isn't the clothing, it's how you look. Your "normal" look is what they'd consider strange.
No. 270903 ID: 0405f3

Notice any humans?
No. 270907 ID: 55c4cf

Well you are a really awkward human with a ragged dread-locked mop on your head.

Your clothes are a minor issue. Is there any way you could pull off not looking like a crazy man?
No. 270909 ID: c71597

It's probably the fact that you're humans. Can't see any others on this street.

How are you for precious metals to use as funds? Because you might be able to take away a few of their suspicions by buying some stuff and acting like you're a trader. or atleast the agent of a trader. Although you might need some more information for that. Should probably hit up a bar and see what information you can get by simply listening a bit to gossip.

Well, I don't see any humans. I only see those fucking cats from that desert, flatfaces, bipedal handbags, goat-things and uh, I think I saw an elf too.
Yeah, no humans in sight. Shit.

I did take some gold with me. I can hear that they talk English. Actually, all worlds I have been in talk English. Must be shenanigans of the Ancients.
>"Those two kinda look like short deranged elves. Or more slender dwarfs..."
What. That is just outright rude.

Grow or emulate horns, maybe dress a bit different. Tory would make an A+ goatmans.

Alternatively, Dream Hat. With Dream Hat all will appreciate the Tory.

Don't bother with them. Go to a bar and listen to gossip. Just sit there with Helena, drink a bit but not enough for it to have any greater effect.

Do that for an hour or three and then see what you have learned.
No. 270997 ID: 1854db

Just act natural. If anyone asks, say you're a dwarf. Or a half-elf, half-dwarf. Hmm, it may be a good idea to find out if such a crossbreed is possible. If not, research dwarven culture so you don't fuck up.

Also I don't think they're going to really attack you or anything. People will stare though so they will notice if you do something suspicious or taboo.

"Get one for me too. Nothing too strong."

It is now my time to spy!

Helena returns with the drinks. She took something that looks quite strong.

She is getting drunk.
No. 271024 ID: 180ec2

It seems that there are some political tensions, as well as powerful heroes in this world. It may help not to take the direct approach in attacking this world, which might get you attacked by something excessively strong, and instead incite the denizens of this land to war against themselves, then take them on when they are weak.
No. 271037 ID: 1854db

Drunk and undercover do not go well together. You should not allow her to continue talking when inebriated.

It seems elves are not well liked and peace is unstable. How about we tip the country into all-out war by provoking the border guards, and spy on the elves via drone to see what they're like?
No. 271039 ID: f6360f

You could really use some sort of cloaked UAV for scouting in the future. Or, alternately, I once again bring up the idea of easily launchable observation satellites. Randomly hanging out in bars isn't really an ideal way to gather information on unknown worlds.

>H: "Hey Toryh, I never told you thish, but you are really cool. Teachh me that fancy machine...crafting somedayh, ok?"
Well, she would be more useful if she had greater scientific capabilities... sure, tell her she can drop by your lab whenever you've got some free time, she can help out and learn by doing.

She is also drunk, but evidencing growing loyalty to you. The former is probably bad for spying, the latter both quite good and rather surprising.
No. 271045 ID: c71597

Ok, useful information has been found. Magic seems to be relatively common. There is a war brewing so your gadgets should have a market. I'm sure one side or the other would appreciate you dumping a nuke from your VTOL on the opposing sides capitol. And the elves are being wankers, maybe they're fun elves.

Also, grunt something noncomiticing to Helena about teaching her. Who knows, she might actually have the smarts for it. Otherwise she could be like your henchwoman or something. Like a less ugly Igor kind of.

We don't even need any kind of stealth system as long as it's fairly high-altitude. People of this period won't really look up often enough to notice it, and even then it'd look like a large bird from a distance.

"Shhh! Yeah, yeah. Please be quiet now, I am trying to listen."
>"Oh oh... ok."

Yeah, this may not be ideal, but it still gives us some details.
Hmmm! Tipping them into a war might not be hard! But having them to fight eachother with swords and spears is not very interesting. I should sell them PROPER weapons. To both sides!
Elves? Bleh, they seem kind of guys that just wank alone in the forest and annoying others.
Hm. I really need some more information. Maybe I should send Jan disguised as a goatman or whatever those are called?
Bleh, I am pretty sure he'd screw it up. What should I do?
No. 271148 ID: f6360f

The classic method of gathering intelligence in taverns involves buying people drinks. Be warned that this is also the classic method of attracting mates in taverns, so you'd best be careful what message you send if you try to use it. Unless you would consider either one a win, of course.
No. 271149 ID: c71597

Get your flatface fixed up and equip him with an earbud and eyecamera. Send him in as a merchant from some far off place, or possibly as a agent of a noble or something. Anyway, he's to look for a place where he can buy books, get a few on history of this place and religions and crap. Then we rebuild the VTOL and take it out for a spin to another place and do the same. Then we should be able to gather a nice amount of information. Oh, and get some maps as well.
No. 271166 ID: 180ec2

Here's the thing: selling them proper weapons is risky. Right now, you have a major technological advantage over them, and selling them higher-tech weapons will diminish that, at the benefit of increasing the casualties of their war. You should strike a balance that will give them something that will greatly increase the death toll but provide little danger to you. Something like world war one gunpowder weapons would be useful in trying to cause a bloody stalemate war.

Hm, maybe make weapons unnecessarily complicated and chip them incase they try to turn against me? WW1-guns are boring.

Also, I bought
3 drinks, but I could not convince anyone to drink them. One actually wanted, but he passed out before I could pass it to him.
The bartender was pretty cool bro. He did not give a shit about my race or looks.

Ezekiel's foot hasn't been fixed yet. Doc said that it better heal naturally. He is busy with his own health, or so I heard.

These guys don't have any mass-production capabilities, they're reliant on you for ammo. That means that if anybody tries to use their new guns against you, they'll run out of supplies in a week.
No. 271274 ID: c71597

Take one for yourself, one for helena and leave one for a lucky drunk. You could spike it with some drugs for extra hilarity.

So if mr Flatface won't be up and running anytime soon then I guess you're going to need to get some good make up to make you look like the locals. Or a wide elf, or something.

If those drinks get consumed by you and Helena things are going to go bad on this simple scouting mission.

Yeah, the better thing to do is just get a round on the house. When you offer someone a drink from your hand they're probably worried you drugged it...

You didn't drug it, did you?

Why not sell Nuclear weapons to both sides of the war? Tell them how to operate the ultimate weapon, then sit back and watch the mushrooms rise.

I am pretty sure selling nuclear weapons to somebody and then betraying them is the worst idea in the history of ever.
No. 271566 ID: c71597

They might not have a delivery system for it. And there is the chance that we don't get everyone who would be coming for us with everything they have left afterwards. Probably safer to just back one side and make yourself indisposable to them, and then make the other leaders disposable.

One for me, one for Helena and one for some lucky fuck who finds it.
I and Helena leave the bar. All that smoke there made me really ditzy. Helena seems to be quite intoxicated. Damn.

I don't really wish to give them nuclear weapons. I like nuclear weapons too much, and they probably wouldn't appreciate them.

So! Getting information is the first point. I might need to disguise! Ezekiel probably can waltz around without disguise and Jan might pass as goat-thing if he grows too horns. Or maybe I can get some information from library, provided this place has one. To produce weapons for two armies... I'd need a factory or something!

No. 273136 ID: 176570

It seems that humans may have a kind of stigma attached to them here. We COULD explain it away as a freak deformity that makes you look like one. This would also give you a reason to avoid conversation about the subject as well, as you could pretend that your "deformity" is a touchy subject. I think we should at least convey this to him. We should also find out more about this so-called extermination war, perhaps by saying he seems to have an interest in it so as to get him talking and spill some information about the event.

>"Anyway, many people don't even know about extermination-war. It happened around 1000 years ago during empire of Agroth. It was result of war between adams and dnaghabs. It was a short war and very unsuccesful for both sides. Little after that, emperor of Agroth, who happened to be a dnaghab, declared that the adams were the reason why war happened in first place. He called for exterminating all adams. Dnaghabs allied with cfeatalfs and catfolk. Us, elves and dwarves did not ally with them, which lead to problems inside the empire. We did not really want another war after one, elves were too busy and dwarves did not care at all. It was one hell of a bloody war. Adams got exterminated, and soon after that Argoth split up to two empires, land of Ragno and land of Asuan.

Well the war was 1000 years ago. Makes sense people would forget about it. Anyway, ask him what's up with the Iusta. Oh, and get some info about religion here.

You might be able to set up a doomsday cult around the idea that the Adam's have returned and the gods are wrathful and submit or die or something like that. Might take some time though to get all that rolling though.

No, it actually IS interesting that the genocide war wasn't studied in greater detail. I could tell you all about the Norman conquest of England, and that took place a thousand years ago. It was studied in detail, with thousands of different scholarly works on it.

It was not as important as a war that ultimately split an empire. I could see them not caring about the genocide part of the war, but the empire being weakened by going to war again so soon would have been very important.

That suggests a deliberate attempt at suppressing history, which means that there's someone who has remained organized for the past thousand years and has worked, and worked hard and affectively, to keep the genocide war out of the history books.

Sounds like something a determined group of human survivors would do, if they had enough money to manipulate publishing houses and scholastic journals. Tory, you need to find the survivors and work with them. Play your cards right and they'll treat you as a hero, come to help them secure their rightful place as the masters of all the weird elves and goat people and stuff.

Stuff about elves, Iusta or other countries, general history and religion/mythology. See if they allow you to borrow stuff or if you need to read it there. If you can't take it with you then go back to the tower, grab a scanner or a camera, come back and copy the whole deal.

Which books? I guess the one about races and cultures is a start. A good map or atlas, some kind of condensed history book and finally a dictionary so you can understand the silly words they use. Also look for a book about common military equipment and tactics.

Keep an eye out for books about magic, but don't ask. You'll look silly if you ask and they have no magic. You need to scope out the magical competition before building anything too awesome. I mean there's no point building a laser cannon if people have some simple spell that warps and reflects light.

I couldn't borrow any books, so I read my head full! Okay, what I found about races;
There are 6 'major' races, and some lesser ones.

- A walking handbag. Proud things, have funny noses and are quite tall compared to other races.

- Tall, dark-skinned, long-eared and squinty-eyed. Mostly live in the forests and jungles and are dicks about their territory.

- Cats. Fucking cats. Pretty darn similar to those I saw in previous world. Quite neutral and law-abiding?

- Flatfaces.

Ta-Ker-Fugocs ( usually shortened Ta )
- Goats. Quite happy and enthusiastic things. They have some sort of weird female-is-superior-system. What the fuck is that about.

- Mostly live undergrounds and in the mountains. Have large beards, love metals and live on alcohol. Usually they do not give a flying fuck about surface-dwellers. Hm.

And hey, I found a map too! I would like to pinpoint some info!

A - Land of Ragna
B - Land of Asuan
X indicates capital. Both lands seems to have mixed races.

C, D - Some other lands. Seem to be kinda divided between races. There is large desert there.

TS - Here be my tower

1 - Border between Ragna and Asuan
2 - Region of Iusta. Sapsh said that it is quite volatile area.
3 - Large forest. Large amount of elves live here.
4 - Mountains, home to dwarves.

Oh yeah, some more information.
Largest religion is some sort of sun-worshipping-whatever. They seem to have paladins and stuff. I hope they are not as annoying as in that other world.

And about lesser races. It basically seems to include some sort of races that are considered mentally or culturally inferior. Whatever.

I also found mentions of magic while reading. Argh.

Head over to the dwarves. Sell them info on modern metallurgy in exchange for raw materials. Now you have TWO sources of supplies!
No. 273500 ID: 252e1b


First priority has to be hooking up with the human survivors. They'll make contact with you, if you keep running around without a disguise, but it will put your future relations with them at a disadvantage since you'll have potentially compromised their security through obscurity technique.

You need to find out who is running the history programs of the universities here, and which publishing houses refuse to print books about the genocide. The directors of those places will have contacts with the humans, and you can use them to make contact yourself.
No. 273508 ID: c71597

Sounds like you should head over to the dwarves and exchange some tech for resources and shit. Should be fun. I mean what can be more fun than surly drunks with guns?

If they're disgruntled then they can fuck off. We're not here to save them, we're here to enslave and subjugate the entire world under an iron fist of SCIENCE!
No. 273576 ID: 252e1b


The survivors already have a network for moving money and supplies around, they absolutely would need one to have survived this long. If Tory shows up and supplies them with the blueprints, technology, and training they need to get revenge for the genocide, he'll have a large group of ready allies. If Tory wants to just terrorize and be dumb and give the locals a chance to organize against him (like what happened when the dragon was killed) then he didn't even need to go to the library. But if he can connect with these survivors, and use them, he can have an effective set of allies for taking over the world. He will need an army if he wants to actually hold anything here; this world has two big organized governments that would be quite happy to wage war against a handful of humans working out of a tower.

But we don't know if there are survivors. Or hell, it could be that the dorfs are the survivors and they're hiding by being short, isolationist and drunk.

As for a army, if we just get the right materials then Tory can prbably use the Nano rifle he got to make a nanobot plague. Sort of like a zombie plague, only it's spread by tiny robots and the effects are a fuckload more horrifying because these bastards will still be intelligent and use tools. They will simply be 100% loyal to Tory and freaking terrifying.

You might like the dwarves. They kind of remind me of you. They tend to spend their lives building things like magma cannons, volcano eruptors, and gigantic statues that breathe fire. Just because they are ridiculous and awesome.
Anyway, you might be able to trade with them. They tend to have stockpiled massive quantities of ores, metals, stone, as well as some very useful minerals, including pitchblende, and a rare impossibly strong metal called adamantine. They also have some technology that you might like, such as a thermodynamics-defying water generator.
You would probably be able to trade them things like machinery and technology. They are very unlikely to cause harm to you with any technology you sell them, because they are usually content to their construction and mining.

Saphs threw me out. It's night, so it is understandable.
Well! I did get much information!

Dwarves seem like cool bros. I read a bit about their history, and seems that they mainly come out just to trade or booze. They don't seem to give shit about anything that doesn't involve them.
Hm. I must prepare my journey! What should I bring? Who should I bring with me? What kind of attire should I use? And how should I meet them? In secret or what.

And by the way, luckily for us, self-replicating nanobots are not possible. Yet. So no gray goo for you.

This world has nice moon(s) by the way.
No. 273744 ID: c71597

Hmm, sounds good! Dwarves will probably love drills and explosives! Explosives are so awesome!

And no, mindcontrolling nanobots won't work. Theory of multiplying nanobots is pretty simple, but application is hellish. There were some succesfull attempts, but those nanobots became extremely unstable after few replications. Not to mention mindcontrol is very problematic. So, it is pretty impossible for me to pull it off. For now.

So yeah, my questions still stand. How should I meet them? Who should I bring with me? Disguised or what?

Your appearance alone will probably make the dwarves curious. Just show up with Helena and ask to talk to the king. No disguises, being human is why you'll get to enter the halls of the mountain king.

You might have to consider what to say if the Dwarves ask what you are. It's something of a cliche but in many worlds Elves and Dwarves don't get on well so your "I'm a mutant Elf" cover story may not impress them.

While gold is nice because it is fungible, you want something they probably don't think they need. Uranium ore! You have three nukes, and while that's good, more is better, right? Plus you can make radiothermal batteries and other cool stuff with it! Well, once you have a breeder reactor going, anyway.
No. 274939 ID: 5f0943

Gold is pretty useful as a conductor, though I suspect you already have something better for that purpose, which means it would probably be mostly useless for anything SCIENCY.

However, gold is shiny, and people tend to like stuff that is shiny (especially when the shiny stuff is gold), and so could probably be used for things like bribery.

and lastly, but not least, there is always the option to use gold for decorative purposes.
People know you mean business when you are pointing a gold plated gun at them.
Or they will just be confused by a gold plated gun, distracting them from avoiding being shot.

So yeah, gold is mostly useless to you.
No. 274940 ID: c71597

Tell them that while gold is nice it's not a metal you need in your work. You build things, and gold is too soft to be useful in other than small quantities.
No. 274959 ID: 28e94e

You might actually need a certain amount of gold for electronics, unless you have some easily-accessible substitute. What you really need is steel and aluminum, plus titanium and uranium if there's any in these mines.
No. 274965 ID: 180ec2

In a pre-electricity civilization, aluminum metal tends to be more valuable than gold. It would be extremely expensive here, so don't ask for any. Keep in mind, though, that you could make a killing by stocking up on large supplies in a place like Earth and taking it somewhere to sell.

As for things besides basic metal, you might want to ask for pitchblende, or as you more likely know it: uranium ore. Saltpeter and brimstone might also be useful in the production of gunpowder.
No. 275005 ID: 28e94e

We're giving them some equipment, so mining aluminum shouldn't give us THAT much trouble.
No. 275010 ID: f6360f

That's only because they can't effectively refine the bauxite. We can- in fact, we could probably teach them how as part of a trade deal, if we really want more aluminum.

Gold isn't really terribly relevant. You should probably spend some time hashing out just what metals they have available and decide what you'll need in quantity, so that you can effectively make a good deal.

We got ourselves an agreement! For explosives and tools, I get iron, coal and such. Useful! As for uranium, they have some, but they really don't value it. I got some for two 100 kt warheads, but that's about it. Now I just have to keep my part of the contract.
To seal the deal, I show them some of my explosives. They are impressed!

No. 276453 ID: 276e18

Yeah go for the feast, but be careful in case their food or drink is accidentally poisonous. Maybe dwarves find that asbestos gives food a nice aftertaste or something. You never know (unless that book on races and cultures covered this issue). Try to question them on the current political climate. Do the dwarves have any enemies? What's going on in the world? There might be somewhere you can step in or land a nuclear warhead for maximum political upheaval.

See if the dwarves can sell you any phosphate mineral ore types in any larger quantities. Then you could get white phosphorous out of that, which is fun and effective. Maybe they would be willing to mine more uranium and rare metals if you'll trade them tools and refining techniques.

I stay for feast.


This feast is pretty nice. Alcohol, meat is pretty delicious and they are serving weird mushrooms. I suspect that most of the foods contain alcohol. Poor Helena, getting drunk once again.
My presence did not go unnoticed, some dwarves seemed to know my kind somewhat ( maybe they are THAT old, or they have books. I suspect latter. )
I see only dwarves, so they probably won't tell others.

Now, I have to plan my next move. According to our agreement, I sell them tools and techniques for metal. I will get enough metal for some weapons and a small factory, they will receive the tools and techniques. After that... I don't know. Somehow get land of Ragno and the land of Asuan buy my weapons?

Now, as for political athmosphere, dwarves don't have enemies and don't care that much about affairs of 'surfacedwellers'. The Asuan and Ragno are not too friendly though, and Iusta seems to be a very volatile area.

Also, what about nukes? I could make seven missiles with single warheads ( 100 kt ), or I could make one big and cool ( 700 kt )!
No. 276810 ID: c71597

Smaller ones are probably better. But that's less cool. Lets see what the market demands first. Then we can start plotting how many nukes will be needed.

And yeah, the plan is to sell weapons to one side. Then they will win wars and all will be fun and happy, while you get a sort of sweet position in the ruling council or something. Make yourself undisposable and when the time comes, everyone else very much disposable.
No. 276812 ID: 265f6a

Well I know it sounds crazy, but I think a couple of lower yield nukes will be better value. After all this world probably doesn't have many cities that are more than 3km in diameter.

How about you start off sending your flatface companion to offer a homing beacon for a nuclear hit to some insane, fundamentalist extremist group with good resources in Iusta that will surely use it on Asuan or Ragno? They'll hopefully claim all the responsibility for the blast. Then they'll want more strikes and then you can charge them a lot of money for it... Or offer one to the enemy for a charge...

From then on it should be a full-on war. The key here is to trick others into taking the blame while you sit back and enjoy some dwarven alcohol.
No. 276853 ID: 252e1b

If you could engineer 20 kT nukes, they would be the ideal size for cracking low-tech cities like the sort that are common here.

Sub-kiloton warheads would be ideal for actually fighting wars. The Davey Crockett design had a probable fatal radiation dose range of about 400 meters. Perfect for killing an entire low-tech army.
No. 276880 ID: f6360f

>Sub-kiloton warheads would be ideal for actually fighting wars. The Davey Crockett design had a probable fatal radiation dose range of about 400 meters. Perfect for killing an entire low-tech army.
Sub-kiloton would be great. You could have entire racks of nuclear missiles mounted on your helicopter. It's not like you've got a lot of enemies at intercontinental range anyway; most of your problems are up close and personal.

If you actually mount small-scale nukes on your helicopter, do not forget to upgrade its rad shielding.

>According to our agreement, I sell them tools and techniques for metal. I will get enough metal for some weapons and a small factory, they will receive the tools and techniques.
Some weapons and a small factory? Measly! Use some of the metal you get to build more tools, sell those to the dwarves, get even more metal, etc. etc. so that you don't have problems with running out of stuff to build stuff out of.

Make sure that you've got sufficient production up and running before you start selling weapons to anyone. Also, if you're going to play arms dealer you probably want a fair number of expendable minion types, lest someone get it in their head that they could shoot you and get your weapons for free.

Our contract is not permanent you know? I get enough metal to build a factory and some weapons and they get tools and shit. Fine enough for me. We can make a new contract about trading explosives. I'll think about that later.

Fuck yeah! That is a great idea! Sub-kiloton nuclear missiles sound good! Also, I probably have to use some of the uranium as fuel. So, lots of sub-kiloton nukes, 8 or 10 20kT nukes and some nuclear fuel?
And as for using nukes, I don't feel like using too many. Yet. It would be overkill.

Anyway, I got some info about leaders of the Asuan and Ragno.
Ragno is ruled by handbag-emperor and Asuan seems to be ruled by a goatman. Uh. I hope they have forgotten about extermination-war, or otherwise I might need a BRILLIANT disguise and a SMASHING alias!

And what I am going to do with Iusta? Build robots and weapons and attack the area with flags of Asuan/Ragno?
No. 277109 ID: 517631

Actually... The easiest thing to do is to continue increasing your dealings with the dwarfs. This way you can play both sides with Ragno and Asuan. Let them fight each other. Ragno first due to his demeanor. Then come to the resuce of Asuan. Worse come to worse, the dwarfs get the finger and you can continue to sell services all around. Its easier to get them fighting each other making any conflict easier for you.

Well why don't you set off the CHOP-U units on a long seek & destroy mission, starting with this town.

Then dress up in some mystical looking robes, covering your faces pretty well. When the bandits come out to see what's making all the explosions and fire pop out of some bush and introduce yourselves as executioners of the void dragon society or something. Tell them that the presumably burning town is a show of your true powers and an act of vengeance as some ancestors of the towns inhabitants once hurt your society's founder. Then tell them you'll consider selling the bandits or whatever other weapons of great destruction and awe if they meet you again tomorrow.

Well they're dead so you're going to need to control or spark the nervous system/brain stem, or entirely control their movement like a robot.

Since they're already dead, that makes them pretty expendable, you could make them explosive to maximize the individual unit's damage potential.

Hey wait if Red has the varialaser and napalm then surely RED won the race with 6 burning gnolls since Helena took out 4 of the 8 lead-filled ones? Or have I got it wrong?

If you can create fairly natural looking, but powerful zombieborgs then you could send them out on suicide missions to assassinate world leaders.

Use spare parts from the others to make up for any lacking organs or body parts. That should hopefully give you some extra bodies to work with.

After that it's pretty much like >>281517 said. Get their nervous system under your control and put in some mechanical parts to make sure that their body functions somewhat.

Yeah, Red won! Thank you for correcting me. 0.90kW laser sure cuts and burns nicely.

"Hey, Helena. I see 14 corpses. Did anyone manage to escape?"
>H: "Yeah, two of them. They ran to the forest, one was pretty badly wounded. He won't get too far."
"Oh, right. Well, I am going to land MAXIMUM FUCK here, so we can easily collect the bodies. If you could, please pile them up here."
>H: "Gah. Fine. Why did you not take Jan with us. He could lift those bodies easier."
"Hah, like you would have problem with lifting those. Now chop chop, I am off to get my MAXIMUM FUCK."


Okay, bodies are in the VTOL. Is there anything I should do before demolishing that town? Or should I just get them back asap so Doc can work with them?

No. 281561 ID: fb6601

You don't want survivors. Maximum Fuck probably has infrared sensors so use that to track and gun down the last escaping gnoll. It should show as a heat source moving away from the camp.

Send out Red and Blue on their full test run with their radios transmitting their progress so you can learn from their eventual mistakes. set them to move to a predetermined meeting point in a few hours/when lot on ammo/when damaged so you can collect them.

Dump off the corpses to Doc first and tell him to keep them from getting too ripe. Then take the chop chop bots out for another test and hit the town as well. More material to work with is always good.

gnolls are simple creatures, all they understand is power and strength,

Why don't you brainstorm with Doc while he works? Try to come up with a way to implant wired electronic reflexes and a computer decision making brain assistant. Then you should get programmable, superfast zombie gnolls!

For Tory's disguise how about armored, red robes with circuit patterns on them? Then a dragonlizard type helmet so people could think you're a dragonlizardperson underneath.

For Helena's disguise make it skintight and lightly armored. Then a helmet with cat ears so she could be mistaken for a catperson. If she says "nyyaaa" every now and again it should be 100% plausible.

As for the cyberzombies make one with harpoon claws - like it's got extendable claws that fire off and are pulled back using wire. Then it can climb or swing between buildings or harpoon people.

Also put in some stuff to make them extra scary and disorienting - like speakers that can emit deafening bangs and shockwaves or powerful strobe lights so they can blind people with sudden flashing lights. The zombies can be made immune against this, but enemies might find it hard to deal with zombies when it's like flashbang grenades are going off all over. Then they get shot and torn to pieces.

Disguising as elves doesn't seem too hard. I quickly visited that town, stole a book and made us perfect disguises!
As far the book is concerned, Helena's are pretty common amongst elves anyway, green colours, etc. Book said that in elven villages they tend to wear much less clothing for some reason. I myself took this SMASHING RED ROBE! I am a mighty technowizard after all!
Of course, we had to colour our skin and hair. Bah. I also quickly made us elf-ears out of plastic material. People should mistake me for an elf now!

>H: "Oh. What are you going to do with your hair?"
"Huh? Nothing?"
>H: "It's a horrible mess. Comb it down or something."
"Nope. You can take off the disguise. I just wanted to check that our disguises are not silly or anything."
>H: "Ugh."

Anyway, Doc said that I cannot work with the corpses yet. He has to do some stuff with them and run some tests. After that I can install all kinds of wacky stuff on them! So, harpoon-claws, sound-generators and weapon ( lazer, flamethrower etc. )? Sounds cooool!

I probably should pick up my CHOP-U robots soon.
After that I'll begin the construction of the factory. It should not take too long since I managed to get dwarves to help me ( teaching them etc. ). I am still unsure where to locate this factory. After that uh, I suppose I should contact either Asuan or Ragno OR build that decoy-robot.

And back to the subject of fetching Red and Blue:
Is there any precautions that I should take? During midnight they will flee and drive to a specific clearing where I will pick them up.

Is there any chance Red or Blue could have become damaged and unable to identify you and your guys as friend or foe?

Red is mostly fireproof since it had a laser and napalm grenades right? If the woods are dry enough then you could turn the entire area into a firestorm with MORE incendiary ammo and laser strikes and sweep in to grab Red in the middle of the blaze all dramatically.

This is some interesting material!

• Blue was cleaved in a half by some goatdude wielding a sword. What a prick. Blue self-destructed, but I don't think it took that prick with it. Kill-count I got from Red was pretty accurate.
• There were some guards in the village, but they defended kinda poorly. They landed few hits.
• Heroes were kinda interesting. There were one really strong one ( one with the sword ), and 6-7 weaker ones.
• Weapons were pretty damn effective. The units suffered some blasts from magic, but they were nothing too bad. They mostly used magic in attempts to extinguish burning napalm.

Hm, that was cool.

Yes it was. But there is still a problem with the fact that the bodies are not accounted for. Which is bad, potentially very bad. You need to beef up your defenses.

And those bots seemed like quite workable creations. So some more of those would probably be nice.

That would be because they were VAPORIZED.

I support the innfiltration idea, but make it a side project. Also ask Doc about a classic zombie or pseudo-zombie plague. If we can land one of those elsewhere in the country as a distraction via Doc infiltrator, it would draw the heroes' attention away from us.
By the by, you should totally built yourself a legit Wizard's Tower not too far away, maybe learn some magic while you're at it too.

I thought I told you that? Well, I did now. It can be removed tho, but it supposedly involves contracts with demons and shit. Supposedly I and Doc have anti-magic field. Sister sold hers and Organist... Well, I am not sure if Organist is human.

Okay, I gotta work on my priorities.
Our plan: I have to get Asuan and Ragno somehow fighting eachother while supplying them both with weapons.
I have to build a factory pretty soon, and I also have to study teleportation-technology!
Maybe I should study the void as well?
I have to come up with some use for those particle-weapon plans.
Uh uh uh.

Get to building the factory then ffs. Study after it's built.

It will give us time to see how our attack was taken by the locals. We should send Helena in costume to local towns to see what they are saying about the attack.

Getting them to start fighting should be quite doable. Just nab some soldiers from either side, get them zombified but still looking decently alive, then have them attack the opposite side. Should get them riled up and stuff.

Other than that you should probably work on the factory and teach Helena stuff. Oh, and a project for the future. A magic detector. You should have a magical spear still stuck in the Maximum Fuck, so you have something to work with.

The factory can produce things without our aid, yes? But it needs a design to produce. So getting the factory up and designing something to mass-produce there (using the particle weapon, perhaps)should happen first, but it doesn't really matter which of those two you do sooner.

Hmm, yes! Factory! I can use dwarves to build it! Mass-producing weapons should not be hard. And yes, I can take it kinda easy after factory is ready. Robotics are wonderful.

Yeah just be careful saying that kind of stuff, or else you'll jinx it and suddenly there's a bunch of annoying heroes knocking on your door.

But yes, it's all going well.

Doc sleeps?! I figured he had used some of his zombie-creation skills along with his team so that he had the benefits of tirelessness.
