As for the factory, I just got it ready. I haven't used it to build anything.
Hm. I managed to improve teleportation-tech a little, but it is still bothersome and difficult.
Now... I think it is the time to make some contact with Ragno or Asuan. Or not! Or maybe yes! Or maybe not! Damn it!
Any ideas?
No. 289856 ID: c71597

How is Helena coming in her studies? And yes, if you can now churn out weapons then it's probably time to start selling them to people. Lets go with the Asuans first, because their name sounds slightly cooler.
No. 289857 ID: 8c73c8

make sure you stay anonymous when you sell them. then have them start a war with someone else. then sell slightly better weapons to the side that was attacked. keep going back and forth supplying weapons to both sides of the war.

Helena's studies are going fine. She is still practising basic things like algebra, chemistry and physics.

Yeah, I gotta visit Asuan capital and sell them some awesome weapons! Maybe I should meet the emperor. That might be difficult and dangerous tho. And those disguises... elf-costumes or dwarf-costumes ( Mr. Tallbeard and Ms. Beardtall )? Should I take Jan with me? Or any of MECHAGNOLLS?
No. 290111 ID: c71597

Take Jan, and disguise as an elf. And don't go to the emperor directly. Find some lower level army flunky to use to sell them the weapons.
No. 290130 ID: 867af1

OK here's a plan: Go speak to an Asuan military representative or war-happy noble and offer to sell them some situational, easy to make, but effective weapon. Like pump-action shotguns or something. Take no training to use, super easy to make, useless against your modern armor, but probably capable of piercing platemail with slug rounds.

Once the sale is confirmed send a few cyborg gnolls (with self-destruct units installed) to attack the Ragno border and have one of your flat-face companions spread rumors in Ragno about a new devastating weapon Asuan have started training their most faithful elite soldiers in. The intention here is that Ragno will strike back to show that they're not afraid of some new weapon. Hopefully things will then escalate into a war where you can drop a few nukes in to really stir things up.

As for the Factory: Maybe you could design and mass-produce a kind of "Locust" model warbot? Imagine a well-armored simple 4 or 6-legged beetle-like machine with a central monowheel and a steam/furnace power generator. It eats everything it can find to fuel itself and even if it loses several legs it could still pull itself along the ground on the monowheel. Easy to mass produce and if they work as intended then they'll move across the land in swarms, destroying and eating everything in their path, firing lasers, mortars or whatever else you can pack onto them.

Ha, it almost sounds like a macro-scale grey goo type of thing. I like it.
No. 290153 ID: 28e94e

Simplify the robot a bit - the wheel is pretty pointless and makes it more complicated to produce, and instead of designing a whole new type of engine we might as well just install the standard fusion reactor (which lasts longer and is immune to scorched-earth tactics).

I'd also suggest that instead of shotguns we sell them submachine guns. A submachine gun has most of the same characteristics, but is harder to reverse-engineer and it uses up ammo more quickly (which means they're more dependent on us).
No. 290192 ID: cf244d

A shotgun is not likely to pierce plate. A rifle would be much more likely to do that, and would still be unable to pierce heavier modern armor. I'd recommend the AK pattern, which is very robust, so should be ideal for these technologically backwards folks. An SMG of some sort would be fine too, I suppose.

That robot design is flawed. That manner of powering is not likely to provide nearly enough energy. Furthermore, the locomotion system is overcomplicated. Just go with four wheels and we'll be good.

Yeah, I'll look into that robot-stuff!

Anyway, I took Helena and Jan with me and flew to the capital of Asuan. It is quite large and is surrounded by few walls. It is kinda pretty. I can't wait to nuke it!

Okay, approaching them is different matter. I could probably get through gates without a problem, but getting to the area of rich folk in the centre ( that's what I am assuming. It looks kinda divided. )
I could fly there, but I am not sure how will they receive me. Faggots even might try to shoot me down in worst case ( it would be useless though! )

And what are those chains about.

Just summarize the deal. You've come from far away to sell your new devastating weapons to thex glorious Asuan army, but if you can't find anyone even willing to look at it then you could just sell it to Ragno instead.

Did you bring any guns? You could buy a leg of meat on the bone at a market and shoot it to bits in front of this guy to show him what your weapons are all about.

Tell Helena to either put that thing on rapid fire or get out something that can do rapid fire and demonstrate that. I'm sure atleast one high officer could be excused from the meeting to see you after that.

We went to eat. And drink. I hope Helena doesn't get herself smashed. Ugh, this food is not very good. It is edible and consumeable, but... bleh.
I gotta think about things. Develop mobile teleportation-tech... I could have extra-fast missiles capable of warping through armors. And build robots. Huge robots! Maybe moving fortresses! Oh yes! Mobile fortresses that launch nukes!

Ugh. I should do more important things than eating. Helena doesn't seem to have problem with the food.

I guess you were given some elf food. Was the dwarf food more to your liking?

Ask Helena what kind of giant battle robot she'd like to pilot.

What's the biggest teleportation issue? size? distance? Perhaps you could set up satellites by just teleporting them into orbit?

What about some kind of teleportation weapon/defense like a field that just disperses things into the surrounding area? I mean if they have some kind of magic shield then it doesn't matter if their organs go from being connected to being spread randomly over a 10 metre area. Similarly if they throw a armor-piercing spear then it won't do much if you turn it into splinters or just mirror-teleport it right back at them. Also if you combine the nanotech with teleportation then you could destroy armies from the inside.

Cheer up. Really you may feel like you're wasting your time, but you're getting a lot of thoughts and ideas. Tomorrow you will start your plans to push this whole continent towards a boiling self-destructive war and after that... Nukes.

There is no limit to distance really. Or size. I could theoretically move a planet into different solar system. Well, theorically. Power costs would become utterly ridiculous. The problem is that even moving small things in small distances is unreliable, inaccurate and expensive. Sure, I can improve it, but it will take time.
That field-thingy sounds good, let's try that someday!

Sounds like you can take it easy. They can be killed, they're probably just quite strong and would be annoying. But with the right methods I'm sure you can take care of them without that many problems.
No. 294352 ID: 9da1d2

Well why don't you test that theory?

Sounds like Aloi is the most public one, being a politician. Just send him/her a present. And by present I mean a nuke in a box with a quality courier who is paid to deliver it personally to Aloi (try to wear some kind of Ragno-like disguise when paying the courier, just in case). Then have tiny cameras and microphones on the box and a remote trigger so you can trigger the nuke to go off as soon as it's confirmed that you've got the right person next to it.

This will also cause a lot of collateral damage, but it's not like anyone you know or care about will get hurt, right?
No. 294392 ID: 28e94e

No need for a nuke. A simple brick of C4 or similar should suffice.
No. 294400 ID: 0f34a0

Apparently you forgot the pesky individual who destroyed a certain drill with their bare hand. Destroying their arm in the process, but still. They should not be taken lightly, even if we can kill them. At least make sure the messenger dies, so he can't be interrogated. If the blame is on another nation, all the better. The death of one of these heroes will probably interest the others, so you should have a plan for them too. And soon. You should learn more of how these heroes think of each other, maybe they won't give a shit if one dies. Wouldn't want to have to switch worlds AGAIN this shit is getting old. If you learn their specific weaknesses you may not have to blow anyone up, but thats no fun!

I am thinking you should choose the two supposedly weakened ones, see just how powerful they are. Then annihilate the politician with confidence.

Also where you gonna get dem nukes/bombs? Spent the last ones we need some more. Trade some more with dwarves or even start/take over your own mine. Mind control would be useful for this, get lots of workers. You can use robots too I guess.

You should also consider the dishonesty of the people you are doing business with. They might capture you and force you to make wepons for them. No doubt you can escape, but should have backup just in case. Also don't give them anything you can't easily defend against. Like high explosives or energy weapons.

Might I also suggest, biological weapons? Doesn't have to be a super virus, just something that can wipe a city real fast, like mass tear gas. If they can survive that, they will still be in chaos. Will be useful if you really need to make a nation fuck off. I would study all of the nations a bit to see what would be more effective against each.
No. 294407 ID: b50003

Right. There's no real need to be particularly worried. It's just a good sign that this place isn't totally safe. The only change this should make to our plans is that we should avoid storing things here when possible. I'd recommend storing things on our world where the mine is, it seems to be our safest location.

Nuke in a box you say? Hehe, that would be pretty damn RAD! In both meanings!
But nuking a politician seems like an overkill. Not to mention that there is that HUGE collateral damage! Brick of C4 will suffice. If it doesn't kill him/her/it, it will cripple him/her/it.

As for honesty of the Asuan? Haha, I gotta be careful then.

No. 295147 ID: 0f34a0

Jan probably does not need rest, unlike you(i guess). I doubt he is hungry enough to run around eating people, but it wouldn't hurt making sure. You really don't want that kind of attention. As for preparation just make sure you find Jan before the meeting and think of what you are going to sell. You will need Jan if they betray you.

You should slowly introduce the tiers of weaponry. Pistols, shotguns, smgs, rifles, lmgs, snipers, grenades, vehicles, tanks, robots! Make sure they eat lots of ammo and are cheaply made so they break easy and need a lot of maintenance. But sell them high. Take turns giving one side an advantage through price and upgrades, so the other must buy better weapons to keep up. This will maximize your profits and allow you to control the flow of battle while still being weak to you. Eventually one or both will be weakened greatly. That is when you should strike. Destroy them, or dominate their government. With your own empire things will go so much smoother.

What is everything you currently have in possession? Just that smg in the demonstration? That should be enough to generate a profitable interest. When they start wondering why the enemy has similar weapons, just tell them you have a rival that steals from you or something.

Do not forget about those ageless faggots either. I doubt they will be a burden until things start getting fun, so just keep it on your to do list while area of the planet is still standing.

Tell them that you are offering (for the moment) a type of weapon known as a firearm, a weapon that uses a small, contained explosive discharge to propel a small metal projectile at very high speeds, and is powerful enough to not be hindered by most mundane forms of armour.
No. 295239 ID: 8c73c8

No. 295250 ID: 0f34a0

Give a brief explanation, say it doesn't require any magic, and offer a demonstration. Be sure to impress him as much as you can. Then ask a ridiculous price but say you are very willing to negotiate. Price is not so important now, once they become dependent, you can charge all you want. If they refuse or you can't get an acceptable deal just tell them to imagine this devastating weaponry in the hands of every enemy soldier. You are interested in business and you have no specific allegiance. They can't refuse.

"Sure, why not?"

We can leave this boring place after this boring discussion is over. Yay! What then? Should I just return to my tower? What about Jan?
No. 295286 ID: 28e94e

The initial shipment should probably be rifles or full-length SMGs, maybe with a machinegun or two thrown in. Machine pistols, while great choices for close-range fighting, are terrible for an open battlefield.

Attempt to locate Jan, then let's get back to base.
No. 295297 ID: 0f34a0

>'two tens'
What is that, 20 or 100? Or did he mean tons? And him giving you the reward after the delivery is a bit fishy. But understandable. Establish a contract next time.

You should really find Jan before you leave, and make sure to have him with you the next time you meet with this general.

When you get back to the tower, come up with more awesome weapon stuff for the nations to fuck each other over with.

Don't request the chemicals you need for the propellant, that's the important part. The rest is steel and grease and lead, but the propellant should remain a secret.

Request uranium too. Even if you don't need pitchblende to build the weapons, you can use it for your own purposes.

He would be a total idiot to do that. You are the only source of these weapons, and if they kill you they will never get any more weapons or bullets ever again.
No. 295448 ID: a41aaf

How is your mass-production capability for small electronics? You could have some fun and give yourself a secret weapon:
Construct the guns as normal with a firing pin + primer in the cartridge. However, use a shock-inert primer (will not detonate when struck by the firing pin). Instead, the hammer will conceal a piezo crystal and a small, sort-range RF transmitter. The base of the primer cap conceals an RF receiver and an electroigniter for the primer.
Under normal operation, the pin hits the primer cap, the piezo in the hammer sends a pulse to the RF transmitter, which is received by the RF receiver, which ignites the propellant. However, to any mechanic disassembling the gun to replicate it, he will see the hammer hit the pin, which hits the primer cap, which ignites the primer, which fires the round. HOWEVER: any attempt to replicate the gun will not work with the ammunition! And if they replicate the ammunition, it won't work with the guns (unless they develop and substitute another suitable primer)! Being unable to successfully replicate the guns will discourage attempts to replace you as supplier, and you can easily undercut them with the price of ammo if they ever figure out how to make working primer, easily discouraging them from ever having all but a tiny stockpile of home-produced rounds.

The second benefit is: you can send out a signal and disable all the primer changes, rendering everyone's ammo useless in an instant! Or detonate every round at once, causing all ammo dumps to explode and all weapons to discharge indiscriminately at once!
And you could add a different key to each sides weapons to prevent ammo from one side being used in a gun from the other! Just to mess with them!
No. 295472 ID: 28e94e

No, that's stupid. They're already completely incapable of reproducing the ammunition, and this would just make it more expensive for us to produce.

No. 295517 ID: 595d54

I guess this guy might be planning to see if he can replicate the weapons himself if he's only buying 20 of them. Which is kind of OK with regards to your plans, but you'd miss out on some profit. I guess he could also just be cautious and unwilling to use loads of money on a weapon from an unknown source that's not battlefield tested...

Actually it occurs to me that Blue was taken down and it was equipped with projectile weapons. It would also have left bullets all over the place. Parallels could be drawn. Maybe you could mention something in passing about there being trouble in your technomantic order?

Why don't you try to find some independent broker in the city who could be your middle man from now on? He could sell more weapons on your behalf, handle the weapons deliveries and do this kind of boring stuff for you so you can spend more time inventing killing machines. Jan has probably gotten in trouble or he's hanging out with girls. Ask the city guards if they've seen him maybe.

Yes, 20 guns. That's nothing. I can make them easily one or two.

And sure, protection is needed. More reasons to build an awesome super-robot that protects me from assassination-attempts!
Maybe I should get a middle man. Maybe I should get BOTH.

I guess Jan is hanging out somewhere with the girls. I don't know. He seems like a person who loves women. But there are no human women here.

Anyhoo, Helena wishes to visit a bar. Sure, but I won't allow her to get drunk. That might be very dangerous now! Maybe a drink. Or two. No more than that.
We find a bar. Helena rushes in.

Anyway, we are finally going back home! Wonderful!
Producing those weapons is not going to take much time. I will have plenty of free time.
Let's plan! Maybe I should build that awesome robot that you suggested! I still have blueprints of my previous magnificent robot, TD-01! Recreating it will take some time and I gotta make some changes!

Hm, hmm..?
No. 296122 ID: 28e94e

"Lets plan" Fuck yeah! But first I think you should ask about how that monster hunting thing went. Are they actually capable of comfortable fighting powerful monsters? "huge lizards"? Or were they just wild animals? If the first then we simply cannot afford to take chances. Hey, what if one of them was a hero? I doubt Jan would not tell you though. Or does he not know about them?

As for awesome ideas you should make a computer that auto analyzes stuff about and around your base and offers tactical support. And tells jokes. And spams vulgarity at anyone who isn't you. This is necessary.

The badass robot/middle man should have the shape of a humanoid like an elf or something, and always have heavy clothing in case somebody gets a little curious about why he is made of metal. He could say it is a curse or something if they find out. These people are stupid about tech so they will believe it easily. How the hell can something made out of metal have a personality, anyway? You're awesome thats how. Make sure it has at least a bland personality and a background story. The whole middle man robot idea is great for spying on the city. You gonna buy him a house and shit? You could also use it to sleep in. +protection while you sleep.

Oh, and sell to those other faggots too! 20 of your weapons is still a major advantage, and they are on the brink of battle so you have heard. Can't have them fighting just yet.

Here is the original TD-01. Kinda simple eh? No weapons in pic, etc. It can fly short distances quickly, acrobatic ( thanks Yasui for programming that ) and is kinda resilient. It doesn't have personality, but that won't be too hard to program. It won't be a true personality tho.

So, what kind of disguise? Elf was suggested. What kind of weapons, personality and any other stuff I should add?
No. 296318 ID: 6a9fdc

Needs chainsaw blades along the shins and forearms. Magnums in the hands, flamethrower nozzle in the mouth, maybe pistols-caliber slug throwers or small lasers in the "eyes", micromissile pods in the upper arms and upper legs. 360 degree vision so it can't be hit from behind. Joints that rotate freely so facing can be reversed suddenly and weapons can be brought to bear on rear targets easily.

Basically just make it awesome and killy.
No. 296319 ID: 28e94e

Nothing fancy for weapons. A flamethrower, maybe a submachine gun will suffice. As for personality, keep it very formal and professional. For disguise, put him in heavy, concealing clothing - several layers of shirts and jackets, heavy work pants and boots, thick gloves, a hood or large hat, a scarf, and some goggles. Look for old, dirty clothing, stuff that looks like it's been through a warzone. We're going for the traditional "shady black market dealer" look.

Also, make sure you can watch the transfer. We need to see how they react and adjust the designs accordingly.
No. 296321 ID: 0f34a0

Making it look believable like a certain race sounds hard. Heavy clothing should take care of most of the concealment, but he should look somewhat real on the inside. Elf sounds good since you yourself disguise as an elf. But it doesn't matter as long as it fits the profile of the robot. He should have a very boring personality, and always try to avoid pointless conversation. We need him to look real and sell our shit, not gab with the locals.

As for weapons, go for the more silenced approach. Attach retractable blade things to his arms and give him some places to store magazines and his own silenced gun. He could double as your assassin which is great. Install a self destruct feature in case he gets caught and disabled, to be safe.
No. 296323 ID: cf244d

Give him a pot belly. The belly contains a gun of some kind, whatever's the biggest you can fit in that space. Any additional space should be storage compartments loaded up with explosives. You never know when that might come in handy.

If you haven't already, add the ability for us to wirelessly see through its eyes, and assume direct control if needed.
No. 296366 ID: 7903c0

Just model the robot to look a lot like your elf disguise.

Give the robot really good sensors, like lie detector-ish with a millimetre-wave radar and/or echolocation so the robot can detect falsehoods, hidden enemies and concealed weapons.

I think the idea will be to go for an alpha strike firepower approach. This isn't a battle robot, this is the kind of robot that can respond to threats with instant overkill destruction to make sure that all enemies die or that you and the robot can get a window in the chaos to escape to safety. Think you can fit a rapid-fire grenade launcher in one of the arms or legs?

No. 297947 ID: 0bd0b0

I must say, excellent work on the hat. Does the monocle have those certain suggested optical enhancements? Those could actually be quite useful. Also it is very good that our bot is believable. If we could do something about the 'strange accent' that would be good but I doubt it will cause problems. He obviously isn't from the city.

Regarding weapons for Ragno, you should stick to projectile weaponry. If you don't care about letting them both know about your indifferent business relationships, sell them the exact same weapons. Then if you waited until the word of these new weapons travels to them it would give extra incentive to buy them too. But you could just hurry up and change the design and sell it to them now. Claim there is some competition as a cover-up.

As for the new disguise, Ragno was the dwarf empire right? They didn't care about you being a human so why not just stroll in with your new gentlemanly attire? I doubt people will find any connections but if they do so what. What are they going to do, stop buying from you? They'll just get fucked by the other nation. Kill/capture you? Teddy would like to object.
No. 297957 ID: c71597

Lets sell these guys projectile weapons. Then we can sell lasers to the other side and they might not figure out that it's the same guy supplying both sides.

And maybe you should give Teddy a different testrun. Tell it to go to a bar and listen to how the leatherbags speak. Try to get the AI to pick up proper mannerisms and speechpatterns.
No. 297964 ID: 7bb4f0

Maybe you could sell Ragno some kind of variation, like gyrojet guns. You could also just sell them light mortars or fragmentation handgrenades. Guns vs. grenades anyone?

However before you get to that stage you really want these countries to be at war. Maybe you should nuke something. You've got a few sub-kiloton bombs right? If you vape or irradiate a border village/town in a contested area then accusations will probably start flying about who did it.

Can you put some kind of fake scar or injury on No.2 to 'explain' his speech? So it looks like his throat was badly cut or burned or something.
No. 297965 ID: c71597

Nukes will probably not be necessary. And might make them both stand down in shock of what has been unleashed. Once one side has a very clear advantage they will probably start fighting quite soon after that.

And if they're not feeling up to it then we can get some cyborg zombies to do the job.

No. 298515 ID: 0bd0b0

Teddy's progress is excellent. Laser weapons would have been the better choice imo if it weren't for the increased production cost and the fact that the people we are dealing with already don't know shit about the weapons.

Our 'allies' don't need to know anything about gun safety. Keeping them safe is not our concern. If they aren't stupid they should know what not to do with the weapon anyway. You should be wary about Helena using guns while drunk though.

I hope things go smoothly with the general. Keep Teddy on alert? He does need you for continued production but he may decide to capture or attack you. To keep you away from the enemy maybe. Should not be a problem as long as Teddy is there. Teddy is a damn beast.

"Okay, now hey, this is a gun! EAKG-2 to be exact!"
"Now, it might look awfully complicated and strange, but we swear it's not! We at Torian promise that you can use the weapon after you get it in your hands!"
"Grip it like this, point at person or thing you want dead, pull the trigger and BAM! Corpses! Full of holes! You can hold the trigger to fire continuously. More corpses! Filled with holes too!"
"It's that easy! Of course, you have to reload it with ammunition from time to time, but that is not a problem."
"Technomancer out, have fun!"

Hoho! Now Teddy will bring them weapons and ammunition every week. He'll be flown with Maximum Fuck ( autopilot ). Helena will accompany him.

Now I'll just to sell weapons to Ragno or spark the war.
No. 298937 ID: 0bd0b0

It is a good thing that you no longer need to visit them in person to sell the weapons. No risk for you, no precious time consumed. Same ol' money. Did Teddy's accent change back or did he just not use it?

I recommend you sell to Ragno BEFORE sparking the war between them. If they don't have your weapons they will be at a significant disadvantage. They may surrender early, or do some peace agreement bullshit. Even if the Asuan destroy Ragno, the Asuan will still be in good shape, which makes them harder to destroy in return. If the war lasts long enough those heroes will supposedly take interest. Maybe they'll even die on the field. So yeah go sell them some wepon. Also think more about what you are going to sell to them. Laser/projectile weapons both have advantages and disadvantages for selling. But they both seem acceptable choices.

And about the heroes, specifically the politician.. You may be able to sway him, help fuel the war. Make a 'friend' of him. Or at least know more about your enemy. Like where and when he sleeps, and how easy it would be to cut his throat.

recap: teddy is cool, sell to ragno before starting war, think again about type of weapon, don't forget about politician fag

Huh. Sister of Pain and Organist are having some sort of... tea party.

"Uh, hi."

Please don't spend too much time on that other quest you were doing. At least give us a pause screen. It is cool too though.
No. 299198 ID: 180ec2

WHY? This is very very very notgood. You'll have to do a lot of reconsidering right now because if things go to pieces you have nowhere to run. You may want to reconsider causing a world war lest you get dragged into it. The big thing that you should focus on is your reactor and world device. Is the reactor still functional without it? If not, you invented it, so hopefully you should be able to rebuild it. Also, do you remember enough about how the device works that you could reconstruct one? Without it you have no way to escape, no way to acquire higher-technology resources, and no access to your mines. Try to make a plea to them.

He probably needs it for something then. Remember what he and sister is like, fucking with them means loss of limbs, so play nice.

Tell him that if he needed you to wait around for his return then he should just have said so, then assure him that it's no problem at all that he broke your stuff.

Say something like that.

Organist is being a total dick here but he is creepy as shit so keep your mouth shut. I wonder what he would need that part for.. hopefully not to fuck with you some more. It is good though that you can replace that part. Once this world is yours you can start rebuilding. I guess O just wants you focused. You need to use your new handicap as motivation. If you fail here now you will have pretty much no chance of success or survival. So get moving, make sure nothing can stop you.

Benefit us both...? Hmm. Alright. I hope it's worth it.

He said he only lied to you once, though. Was that about him being human?

At any rate, hold off on starting the war. Just deal weapons for now, and say that you ran into a snag and you can't produce as quickly as you could at first. Slow down production so that you don't run out of metal, and work on that replacement part full tilt. We need that world-hopper back online.

It's not so terrible if you can reproduce it, and if they really are doing something important with it, it's not that bad, and if the void reactor is still functioning you should be fine for a few weeks. Just be careful not to get dragged into anything that would get you attacked; you said yourself you can't handle a siege.

Motherfuckers! Ok, this changes things a bit. Can't get out of here if things go to shit. Fucknuts.

The plan can still go forward, with some slight alterations. Send out Helena and her crew with Jan along to gather information. Anything and everything about dark magicians and shit like that. Teddy keeps delivering weapons while you work of a replacement part.

We'll get out of here eventually, gather up more information and learn how to deal with the likes of Sister and that backstabbing Organist. Then we're going to fuck them up. But that's for later, more immediate problems need to be solved first.
No. 299866 ID: 1854db

Kill them both? That would be... very difficult. I don't think it would even be worth it. Some advance warning would've been MUCH appreciated but he said that it would benefit you in the long run. So let's just deal with it.

Why do you want someone with magic? I guess it could be neat to make some magitech stuff, but that isn't always worth the effort. It really depends on how well the magic meshes with your tech.

Maybe you can do a little research on armipotent beings if you're *really* set on getting revenge, but it should wait until after you're done replacing that part.
No. 299869 ID: 0bd0b0

I realize your anger, and it is quite justified, but fucking with these guys is a big fucking NO. They are being total assholes but at least they are gone now. It appeared as though they had some justification for fucking with you. Organist acts like this is for the betterment of you and them. Despite the total dick move by Organist, they have been more helpful than harmful. If Organist is really on your side this should turn out for the better. I see nothing wrong with having some magical defense against them, however. There may be some other magical threat as well.

The rebuilding of that important part must happen eventually. Nobody wants to kill you right now, so it seems, so if you wanted I guess you can go to work immediately. But I don't think you should. Focus on this world and make sure it is yours before those faggots come back. This world should have just as many resources as that other one you had a mining thing on. Start a mining operation near your tower. You shouldn't have to worry about resources after that unless you need something really big fast. Then comes the planning of annihilation and world domination and general mayhem.

Don't forget to blow something up! Make it big. That always seems to put you in a good mood.

On the upside their rooms in the tower are now yours. More space for your work! Maybe Doc needs a bit of extra room as well. You should go check what he thinks. Maybe he was told something else.

Perhaps you should make an ultimate all-slaying weapon. A Void Annihilator Cannon perhaps. That dragon Ceisyoli had an abnormal respect for the power of the void. Armipotent beings be damned if you can just suck them into the void.

In the meantime you'll have to slow down your plans since you don't have an interdimensional escape route. Maybe fortify the tower a bit more. Keep trading with the dwarves. Focus more on arming Asuan and aggravating the two countries into a war instead of dealing weapons to Ragno. You can sell them stuff later if the war starts. It'll be easier to get away with it when Ragno are desperate and losing.

Okay, the cyborgnolls are still travelling. I sent them far away. They are all fine and approaching destination.

And no, I don't need a magician to operate the device. It's just that it would be great to have someone to get information from. And yes, Sister did help me build the device by providing information about gates.
Also, combining magic with technology? Might work.

>Void Annihilator Cannon
I like your style. I'll see what I can do!

Hm, I even have more space. That's def. big plus. Maybe I should give Organist's room to Helena.
Anyway, replacing that component will be difficult and take time. Sure, I can devote time, but I still have to have my plans in motion. Tower already has kinda strong defense anyway ( those sniper-turrets for example ).
By the way, Ezekiel is healed. I'll send him spread some rumors and gather info like you suggested.

Magitech is a good idea but we got more important stuff right now. Do you still remember about the 'gates'?

I believe we have already ruled about fucking with the void. Something about a void bomb swallowing us. But if you think you can make it work, much devastation will come from it. Hopefully on what is targeted, and not us.

I see no problem with taking up the faggots rooms. What would Helena do with the space though? Ask her if she wants the room, see if you could put it to better use. There is still Sister's room. Oh hey, did they leave anything? I doubt they would, Sister visibly had a pack on her, but couldn't hurt to check.

Wash your hair, put your gentlemanly attire back on!

Pretend to be a hero first. Should also take care of the blowing something up plan, to make you feel better. The.. reputation.. may also help with the Ragno deal.
No. 300176 ID: c71597

Pretending to be a hero will only attract attention, and then there might show up people demanding that you aid them with their shit at all times and crap. Will only be an annoying and potentially dangerous distraction. Just lie low and keep working.

Get another robot built and then get working on that device. Just try to lie low and let things progress while you stay at the tower and get work done. Don't go out in the Maximum Fuck or do anything that would attract attention to this place.

No. 300576 ID: a9d7f5

It would be cool if you could use Helena's outlaw-tracking senses to have her set up a crazy extremist group in Asuan. Then give her underlings some simple rocket artillery and task them to fire rockets across the border at night from random locations where they won't get caught. Preferably hitting the estates of some rich, important people in Ragno.

I say rocket artillery since it is so obvious. If deadly balls of fire are coming directly from an enemy country, leaving incriminating trails of smoke then someone in Ragno will get very angry very fast.

Just remake TD-01, inventing a new model would be time consuming without real benefit, unless we can come up with something good. You should give him a different race appearance since we already have a leatherbag selling our guns. Leatherbags seem the most convincing as robots though. You could make up your own race kinda, make him a dark humanoid figure in heavy clothing.
No. 300681 ID: 4be44e

You could use your handy factory to simplify the rocket mass production and hide them somewhere like forests or caves where Helena can send her potential future subordinates to retrieve them a few days later. Very little trace. Especially if Helena comes up with a good disguise and backstory.

Get ready to sit back and chill with a drink on your tower roof as you watch rockets streak across the sky, delivering destruction.

For the next robot base it on TD-02 frame, but vary the weapon loadout a bit. Maybe a different race? If you also make it look like an older person then the artificial robot clues can be hidden under a facade of wrinkles, fake cramps and pretend illnesses.

Thinking of yourself as a god? Hard to deny with that suave attire. If you wanted to be magically powerful, you should look to sell your anti-magic field. Your genius may speed up the learning process. Your anti-magic field may also be useful though.

On the subject of a new race, let us not make a silly crazy creature thing. It is just to help disguise its true identity. A dark, bald, humanoid figure will do. Give him an assassin's look, and specialize his weapons and abilities in silence and darkness. Silenced guns, blades, poison. Let him be charismatic. Might help him fit in the crime rings of Ragno for extra selling, and kill small groups of people people without suspicion. Give him some bombs and shit though. He needs to protect us too.

Make sure to make a hero-killing weapon for Helena in case some do-gooders somehow manage to track her down. I'm thinking some kind of nanite mini-cannon. Even if it's blocked the resulting nanite cloud should kill most things. And she tends to wear that scarf. You could make a high-voltage tesla scarf! If anyone tries to get in close combat then Helena can use the scarf as a whip and electrocute anyone it hits.

Get her involved in the process as well. Maybe she has something to add and it would be good for her to have a bit of a clue regarding how the devices work.

Once you've got the ball rolling maybe you should take it easy and work on your void and teleportation theories while waiting to see if a war will happen.
