Hey, Captain. How hard was it to set up a sex dungeon in Queenwood and rope a bunch of guys into doing kinky military RP with you?
No. 125340 ID: d2e2ce

Actually wait, how the fuck does an art hive make a living anyway? Presumably the art scene isn't all just money laundering.

Speaking of which, oi, Silverstream, what's business like and how do you prevent yourselves getting used for money laundering and the like?
No. 125341 ID: 5f3f48

"Art Hive" just means that art is central to the hive's identity. That doesn't necessarily preclude them from other income streams, or mean that they're incapable of anything else. And even then, there's a lot of creative fields the hive could own a business in, or that individual members might have gotten jobs in if they were so inclined.

That's cool and all but to be honest I'm more interested in the in-universe answer
No. 125460 ID: 32dc9c

To anyone who participated in the ultrahive wars (eg. Rokann, Marra, Rokoa...), How violent were the wars in general?

Were there any laws of war to be followed (for example about the treatment of POWs or civilians) or was it a total bloodshed for all the hives involved? Actually, how many lives were lost in these wars?

Was there any peacekeeping initiative organized by the aliens to keep the violence as minimal as possible?

Any interesting/notable stories or events that happened?
No. 125461 ID: a1c591

Dr. Renson, or anyone who’d know: how common/rare is it for people to practice medicine on other species? In the event of someone having a medical emergency in an area that’s predominantly some other species, would there be any effort to try and find a doctor of that person’s species to treat them, or would that not be a factor? Do other, similar professions (therapists for example) ever cross species barriers?
No. 125509 ID: 27bc37

To Story Seeker:

I have no idea what I'm doing, or if this is even the place to ask this. Here goes.

Has your adventure come to an end (at least as far as we are concerned) or are you just "doing laundry" so to speak.
No. 125515 ID: e1d580

I'm pretty sure SS could provide a funny in-universe update on his stuff in here, but if you want a more unambiguous OOC answer the Story Seeker disthread is probably a good place to try if you can hunt down which page it's fallen downwards to. For what it's worth I'm reasonably sure it's still on the list of quests to do, just lower-priority than the more recent/bigger projects.
No. 125516 ID: afdebc

>if you can hunt down which page it's fallen downwards to
Protip: you can look up quests on the wiki (which has an actual search function) and follow the link to the dis thread of your choice much faster than manually hunting through pages or the catalog.
No. 125517 ID: bfb318

Normally what the couple of above posts say is true, and the wiki pages, in this case https://tgchan.org/wiki/Story_Seeker , are good for just keeping track of threads, but in this case there isn't actually a Story Seeker dis thread.

So for the meta answer, SS isn't over, it'll have more stuff at an undetermined date. Also I'll probably make a disthread around then just so it has one, no matter how belated.
No. 125547 ID: 2f83e5

Now that we are on the topic I want to ask a question to SS.
SS you did a great job improving the conditions of the kobolds (and other races) in Spearstone. Do you think is possible for other races to stop seeing Kobols as just slaves or savages? Or do you agree with Reilqin statement and Kobolds do really shine in the servitude of other races?
No. 125863 ID: a44332

To Shup: Have you ever met the Emperor face to face(plate)? Like, did he ceremonially hand you your mithril seal or something?

Panica from Luvi's story in The Rogue: There is no tactful way to ask this. Why is your pregnancy so weird. Why. Why so big. Why is your freakish alien pregnancy weird. Why. Why. Explain. Why.

Luvi: How many date / marriage requests do you get weekly? How do you deal with these requests given your... attitude against rejection and other negative actions?
No. 126554 ID: 298905

Shup, or another person who would know: Non-kobold creatures can be enchanted, right? Like those dogs that react to the fields being trespassed on? I was wondering if there are any other animals that commonly get enchanted for things. And, the obvious next question: can you enchant non-kobold people, from outside? What if they were born and raised in the kobold lands, somehow? I can already imagine some border nobles hiring non-kobold mercenaries just to have a more special and intimidating entourage.

Neumono question: I can't remember if this was ever answered, but if you got a big enough bunch of neumono babies and raised them in constant contact with each other, isolated from other neumono, would they grow into a hive with each other?

General Asteroidverse technology question: Has anyone tried blend AI with cybernetics? Like, through some implant in their brain, using a partial AI to expand someone's knowledge or skills directly. Like, for the cyborg parts with complicated uses such as an arm that can flip out an array of complicated tools or something, instead of having to somehow learn to make a bunch of unnatural impulses using a nervous system not designed for more than fingers and a few joints, you'd basically jam in an extra chunk of artificial brain that already has all the "instincts" for how to use them and which can handle the weird alien feedback it gets. Maybe even up to more radical things like, to bypass the danger of sentient AI, you make a shell of an AI with everything but the sentient bit and a biological person's brain jacked into the saddle to take it's place with a set of neural implants, thereby giving them insane haxxor computer powers?

I mean most people besides neumono probably wouldn't want to risk that kind of brain surgery, but is it possible for the sufficiently unethical/illegal/wealthy person?
No. 126567 ID: e1d580

Yo, to any Asteroidverse lads, how do you rate the different species' pussy? Tits too, if any species has them and they're different from the standard model. We got a rundown on cocks and cum so I figure the other side needs some love.

Korli, any chance you'd know? Ramella maybe?
No. 126822 ID: 8950e3

Zirkala, did you ever punish your skeleton alchemist for chemically castrating Story Seeker? I haven’t followed his story in so long I’ve forgotten her name, and I remember him saying her potion wore off around the time he started learning actual magic, but that doesn’t make what she did any less monsterous. I remember the reaction when we realized what she’d done being unanimous horror and disgust.

I imagine it’s probably hard to reasonably punish an undead minion who you want to keep employing, but still. Have you thought of anything yet?
No. 126873 ID: 465a14

Yo neumono your hives gotta get new blood sometimes right? If the individual hivemates don't meet enough new people by themselves do hives ever arrange meetups, like are there dating sites for whole hives at once? How often do hives arrange orgies for breeding?
No. 126879 ID: a9af05

To Dame Frais from Fen Quest: What did you think of Fen when you first saw him? Did you ever think he would make it as far as he has so far? Did you ever expect to be good friends with him or did your friendship with him come unexpectedly?
No. 126889 ID: 470289

How do Brothel Hives deal with rogues who want to get pregnant, and do they ever use customers sperm to get pregnant without informing the father?
No. 127145 ID: 7582e1

(same poster as >>125863 here)

To Sir Zall: Do nobility or children thereof get any "skip the Pawn stage of the army" privileges? That would explain why do few of your knights are disciplined.

To Cheese: This Might Wizard, does he only upgrade soldiers? Because I thing there would be a good market for upgraded runners, capable of running long distances without stopping often and without dropping dead at the end.
Even with the teleportation network, if you need a fast reply a week can be too long.

Ranger Pink, from the Omega Wave Force: if it's not rude to ask, how old are you? You come across as young at heart, but some things came up when Polo was looking for you that made it seem like you and the other rangers might all actually have been around for a while. How old is the Wave Force? Are you all the original founding members? The way the gun narrated your backstory to Polo made it seem like it was designed for passing it around sometimes. Have you had any extra or replacement members before Polo?

Glitcher, would it be possible for other CAI members to reproduce, or is that only possible due to you and Rulekeep's unique natures? Also, what would an Alison/Sevener kid end up like?

Nalene: I could have sworn I've seen you somewhere before this quest. Any previous appearances throughout the multiverse (internet)?

I’ve been meaning to ask. What do Neumono think of alien murder mystery / whodunnits dramas, given the lack of empathy?

And how long did it take from Polo’s ability being exposed to the world until someone ran with the idea to create a «proper» neumono murder mystery whodunnit?
No. 129226 ID: 93fb12

How long do neumono generally take to regenerate from various levels of injury?

>Actually wait, how the fuck does an art hive make a living anyway? Presumably the art scene isn't all just money laundering.
I think most hives that deal in the arts work like Storytree, though most of them are much more specialized than we, er, they are. Most of the funds that are earned go into the Hive’s central bank account which pays for taxes, food, utilities, and other general things. Reoccurring costs. Only a few of us can touch that account, and it supports our lifestyle. From that account the Queen transfers a certain amount every month into a shared account that most of us do have access to. That’s basically used to pay for like, personal purchases, Hive events, everyday expenses.

Once you’re an adult and considered responsible enough you get a card that lets you access the shared account within certain limits. Before that you must ask someone with access to the account to do transactions you can’t do with petty cash. So, when I was a kid I used to ask J’raine to buy any personal instruments or easels or whatever and once I got a card my little sister bothers me whenever she wants some stupidly expensive history book or access to some online biography that’s behind a paywall.

Any individuals or small groups in the Hive that do paid work that’s not ‘Hive sanctioned’, which means the Queen doesn’t personally look over or listen to the work and sign off on its quality, sends their profits directly into the shared bank account. It’s not required, and I know a few who don’t, but they usually spend what they get almost immediately. If someone needs funding for the project they use the shared account, and we basically work on an honor system that no one will take too much out of it. So, if decided to do a band gig with some hivemates then, well we’d probably borrow the equipment from someone else in the Hive, but if we couldn’t we could buy the equipment with the shared account and we’d forward the pay back to that account. Assuming we weren’t paid in beer, obviously. Overall, this isn’t much of our income.

‘Hive sanctioned’ work are contracts that are brokered by the Hive itself. Generally, the Queen or her representative will meet with another Queen, company, or whoever and work out the specifics of the deal. This can be something like production design work on a small movie. Usually the Hive picks who’s going to work on the project and if the Queen signs off on them it basically just goes like any other job. Income from this goes to the central account, and it’s the bulk of how we support ourselves.

We also own a few businesses which I think operate independently, money-wise. A few hivemates live and work there full-time and they grab kids for part-time work as needed. We have a publishing house, the front of which doubles as a book store, and the amphitheater we call the Hall. Oh, and the gallery. That’s new though, and I’ve never been there and don’t know much about it. The Publishing House mostly prints Hive stuff, but we do lease it out to outsiders sometimes. The theater is the same, though it’s a lot bigger. The Queen is always looking to expand, and I think she has her eye on a studio next.

Storytree is more stable financially than a lot of other artistically focused hives since our products are diversified, but the drawback is we can’t handle large volumes of work in the same medium. If someone needs a small band we can do that, but we don’t have enough professional-level musicians trained in the specific instruments to field a full-scale orchestra, for example. We do have an edge over our competitors since we can do multimedia projects in-hive with a lot more ease.

I think that’s everything?

Alright, someone has to bite the bullet. Luvi, what's the premise of Tekbeasts?

>How many date / marriage requests do you get weekly? How do you deal with these requests given your... attitude against rejection and other negative actions?
I don’t get them weekly, but I do get asked out every now and then. If it’s from a rogue I’m helping I try to let them down gently, but firmly! It’s against the rules to date clients, and it’s also just awful for their long-term well-being. Rogues rebounding onto their case workers is never good because they get really fixated on you. It’s one of the job hazards.

Outside of work, I speed date when I can and since I can’t always attend ladies’ night, I get asked out by insistent guys sometimes. It’s usually best to say yes and wait until they get tired of me in a couple of weeks and ghost me. If it’s a girl, well, a lot of times we stay friends afterwards, which is great!

…This isn’t exactly dating, but occasionally I do get propositioned on the street. it’s usually by rogues who think I’m a U addict because of my empathy. U is a drug that makes you happy and euphoric, but it’s hard to get in the Tree, so some people try to get close to me to get access to my ‘connection’. Usually after I insist for a bit, they believe I’m naturally like this. When they don’t, well, sometimes Rocker gets involved.

>Luvi, what's the premise of Tekbeasts?
Oh! I’ll try not to talk your ears off! Just the premise, Tekbeasts!, the original series, is about a world where different races have been locked in strife for countless generations. There are hundreds of societies on the planet of various sizes with each main character coming from a different one. The one thing all the civilizations have in common is they lack a concept of metal, and without it advanced technologies like we have now are absent from the entire planet. At least until the planes are broken! During a melee one of the smallest and weakest societies reveal they’ve secretly been plundering other planes for technology and have launched a campaign to begin their Empire! The main characters who were fighting in the battle manage to fall into a trap that sends them out into the wider planar field and have to put their differences aside in order to get back home and learn enough about the planes and each other to get back home and save the planet! And that’s just the first season, before Thrasher gets her Infernocycle!

There’s been a few reboots and sequels, and they all remix things in their own ways, some more than others. Thrasher is in every adaption that matters, and Gulper of Black Marsh, Tyreen Tail, and Joe show up the most often of the original cast. Oh, that’s going a bit farther than just the premise though. I’ll shut up about it now!

>Hey, Captain. How hard was it to set up a sex dungeon in Queenwood and rope a bunch of guys into doing kinky military RP with you?
Most of my squad would not have sex in the basement of our current safehouse. Therefore, I would not classify it as a ‘sex dungeon’.

A few safehouses were already functioning when we came to Queenwood. Part of my work since has been to cultivate more. Varied methods are preferred, from buying property, renting with trustworthy landlords, or long-term squatting to keep the paper trails as hard to follow as possible.

To obtain Toreq I followed him and mapped his likely paths. Geo then intercepted him, pickpocketed his wallet, and ran into an alley where I was waiting. I subdued him, and we transported him to the ‘dungeon’. He is the only guy we have roped on this excursion.

I do not know what ‘RP’ is, or why it would be kinky.

Raox, what inspired you to campaign for rogue rights? Was it spurred by a personal decision, or a hive-wide one?

And no offense, but you look /awful/. How well are you balancing ultrahive politics with your normal duties as queen?

To Raox or anyone else who wants to answer, what is Scorch's specialty, and how is it doing these days?

Answered before, iirc- Raox brought up the issue at a meeting one day. The others thanked him for volunteering and then it was his job.

His original answer >>93274 implies his choice was a bit more active than that, and Kark calls him a "bleeding heart" -- it's curious why he cares in the first place and why he hasn't quit, especially when not a single other ultraqueen appears willing to address the issue without humans twisting their arm.

No clue, boyo. Honestly! People yell at me about ‘conflicts of interest’ and ‘ethics violations’ if I even look at a Silverstream™ business sideways. If my Hive aren’t being mopey pieces of shit I assume everything is good. Nora! Tell them how y'all work!

Somewhat related to the question of hive vs. individual culpability for crimes: If a queen committed a major crime, like something on the level of treason, war crimes, or an attempted coup, and they faced trial, what would happen to their hive in the aftermath? How much is a hive considered on the hook for their queen's actions, if the queen is the heart of the hive and reflects/directs its will? Is "the hive made me do it" a valid legal defense? Or does it work the other way around, can followers claim they were bamboozled by the queen's influence?

And sorry for the double post, someone can say if this has been answered before: Is Raox Coalition or Tree? I interpreted his "All the other ultras are queens" to mean only the ultras in the Tree, but did he mean all ultras period?

Moi, what kind of Neumono are you? Snow, Jungle, Redgrass, Archipelago? We know Likol had Jungle roots, but others from your hive (Ramella, Korli) seem to be something else and all the Salikai intervention means there was likely some mixing of things.
