right, im sleep deprived and working on some commission stuff before i can update again; figured i'd open this up while i had the chance.

anything goes, ask whatever or just talk about these horrible cat-shaped things.

Why are they called tiny when they exist in a void and there is nothing for them to be tiny relative to
No. 98327 ID: 32d627

the name just kind of stuck when i first thought these weird things up- in scale to us, they'd probably be about a foot at maximum height.

primus is about 6 inches tall, for some reference here.

this is a cool quest mang
No. 98341 ID: 32d627

go hog wild here, fill the landscape with giant shoes if your heart so desires

on creation limitations: there's not too much i'm gonna prevent from being made right now, but for reference's sake i will probably pick things that have function over things that would be virtually useless to TCPs: considering these little gremlins play with anything and tend to look past Intended Use, that's not gonna be too much not allowed.

but who know, /quest/ seems to be pretty resourceful and if yall come up with shit i have NO idea what to do with, we'll see where that goes.

thank you for reading it! i'm really glad it's getting so much suggestion, as it's my first quest and a project i've wanted to revisit for some time. tgchan definitely seems like the place to put it after all.

I don't what you're talking about mortis, tcp looks amazing!
No. 98372 ID: 6a0e58

This whole buddy subplot is reminding me of someone I used to know who had chronic pain from joint hypermobility syndrome.

The only actual solution for pain was medication but it just seemed like, even though it was necessary, it opened up a whole nother box of problems.

Feels like theres a disconnect here, we're an omnipotent entity that can call anything into existence but we just can't fix some things.

I guess that's kinda the point though? Even if we find some insurmountable problem as an individual or as a society or as an omnipotent void thing, we're still finding distractions and ways around it.
If you can't fix it, don't make it a problem I guess.
No. 98373 ID: 6a0e58

No. 98375 ID: 34dbe0

this quest is making me think Horrible things.

main Horrible thought at the moment: when our tcp limit increases, we should spawn a tcp with a really nice comfy body (plushie? jelly? etc), hhhh...hhhave primus kill it quickly before we get attached, and give the body to buddy.

WHICH IS AWFUL!!! but is pretty clearly how the up/down machine is supposed to be used. plus sorry but i'm invested in our first two.

i'm even finding myself thinking that im unwilling to make primus go through that, so what if our third tcp was actually just meant to. sit by the spawning pool and kill the fourth one, so that buddy and primus are completely unaware of the process and don't have to have any like, horrible traumatizing memories from it. WHICH IS FUCKED UP!!!! my love for these little cat things is quickly becoming pretty fucked up
No. 98376 ID: 32d627

a heads up for those currently debating what the fuck to do with buddy right now: you CANNOT directly change a TCP's anything without use of an outside machine's help.
please note that these machines do not come with a low cost, and the more dramatic the change, the worse it's gonna get for you if you're attached to these cat-shaped things.

be caaaareful!

BINGO! buddy's struggle with its pain is VERY much inspired by people dealing with chronic pain issues. (myself included) it was decided pretty early on in the planning stage that weapon TCPs would have incredible disability and physical weakness stacked against them, despite the fact that they'd also be incredible maiming machines if the void put them to it.

whether it's discouraging you to make weapon TCPs or encouraging you to take CARE of weapon TCPs or both? that's up to you.

also, thank you!! i'm so glad that yall like the quest so far.
No. 98377 ID: 34dbe0

WAIT I JUST REALIZED... we have a spawning pool for non-tcps.

so, while this is still hideously immoral, we COULD create a non-sentient, extremely dangerous beast to lie in wait for our next TCP so at LEAST we don't have to make another sapient creature commit murder.

this plan relies on two things: 1. we can un-poof anything we make, which unfortunately i have a feeling is not true and 2. the plan someone else suggested of just spawning a TCP corpse is not possible.

i would also say that we could try to spawn like, OP god medicine that mitigates buddy's pain perfectly with no side effects but uhhhhh that would severely undercut mortis' intent with buddy's disability (which is something i'm invested in as well, and i'm not really all that interested in finding a perfect miracle cure for it so much as /quest/ as a group finding a creative workaround.) if we can't have machinery without heavy costs i assume we can't have drugs/potions/consumables without heavy costs as well.
No. 98378 ID: 32d627

good! this could easily be a horror quest and i have made accomodations/plans for it to go that way! i'm glad that people are starting to debate how they want to do this, as i'm well equipped and ready to turn this into a horrible blood (or would it be fluid?) bath.
No. 98379 ID: 32d627

>we don't have to make another sapient creature commit murder.
a good idea but its Gotta be a TCP- they're the only ones that cat be influenced by the KILL command.
>we can un-poof anything we make, which unfortunately i have a feeling is not true
very not true! you make it, you gotta deal with it
>the plan someone else suggested of just spawning a TCP corpse is not possible.
possible, yes. will it work? well, is the bee that you spawned REALLY that good of a bee? is it a bee, or a Bee Shaped Thing? your call there
No. 98381 ID: 34dbe0

hmm, ok. well, if the corpse plan has even a tiny chance of going Horribly Awry i'm not willing to risk downloading buddy's consciousness into it. on one hand i would rather take NO risks at all and just focus on mitigating buddy's suffering through coping mechanisms, distractions, etc, but also literally the only thing it wants is for its body to stop hurting so my heartstrings are a-twangin.

also! u might wanna let ppl in the thread know that the disthread is up and running so that more ppl will come here to hash it out - i think a lot of times people just go straight to the links of the quests they read and don't click around to check the other boards.
No. 98383 ID: 32d627

done! will probably keep updating but with non-buddy-pain-fix related scenarios until /quest/ can come to a relative degree of agreement/majority rule on how this is gonna go.

that's not a promise your solution will work as intended, mind you

His body has him in horrible continuous pain, I think it would be better to upload him
No. 98386 ID: 5ad4a7

It sounds like body replacement is not something we can do freely. It will only become an option if we create a TCP that goes/is bad and needs to be KILLed.

Which, I assume, will happen at some point. Heck, we could probably make a bad TCP on purpose. Like, use a bad word for a TCP. ...well, since the word picked seems to be up to the author, I'm not sure that will work. Or even if we know what words are bad. KNIFE didn't make a violent TCP, after all.
No. 98387 ID: 5ad4a7

...maybe we can approach it from a different direction. Could we make something that would ease its pain? Like, a magical painkiller bracelet?
No. 98388 ID: 32d627

type choosing is kind of tricky, yes it is up to me but i also am going to pick by hand if i see a word that i think, as a character designer, will be really interesting to the quest and as a standalone design. knife worked incredibly well as 1) i actually designed knife type TCP already and 2) it would get us to the meat of this quest, aka the horror elements.

BUT, i did pick tent by randomization. cactus was equally tempting, so i ended up doing a randomization for it and will probably do a similar tactic if a type isnt agreed upon or too many are suggested.

personality is kept ENTIRELY different from type, and there's no guarantee that a word will spawn a certain personality/morality of TCP
No. 98389 ID: af3241

low-stress positive environments are beneficial to people with chronic pain issues irl so maybe we should just keep keeping on with being good to buddy instead of going straight to "KILL THE MISTAKE" ?
No. 98394 ID: 99a64d

The biggest issue with Buddy is that he lacks any orifices through which to ingest painkillers. I suggested Dermoplast, but that isn't exactly a high strength painkiller, hopefully the placebo effect will help with that, but I'm not confident about that. Maybe we could inject him with something using a syringe?

Would it be possible to surgically remove Buddy's blades?

This quest is going to turn into Dwarf Fortress isn't it?
No. 98395 ID: 3663d3

oh oh. once we get a third cat we should get a cleric cat. pull a blade out and cast heal magic.

ok but buddy is a sweetheart, how would it feel to know we killed someone to take their body? :( :( :(
No. 98398 ID: 0c7bf6

I'm not sure if we could pull the blades out, since they seem to be part of the body. But maybe a cleric/healing TCP could help pain relief?
No. 98400 ID: 99a64d

Some kind of medical TCP would be our best bet for the next one. Maybe a medkit? Then teach it surgery and have it remove the blades. I'd consider teaching Primus surgery, but I don't think he would take well to it.
No. 98402 ID: 47160d

Again, we don't need to kill someone. We can just create a body

if the TCP limit is 3 and we kill the 3rd TCP, can we spawn another TCP? or do corpses count toward the limit?

corpses do not count towards the limit, only living TCPs do!

No. 98414 ID: 32d627

No. 98416 ID: 9fd26b

because of
it's very very likely that whatever comes out of the void will lack whatever makes a TCP... a TCP. and that TCP essence is vital, that's what the upload/download works on

speaking of essence, aren't TCPs defined by their noun? if we removed the knives from buddy wouldn't it... dissolve, or disappear, or something? that's a morbid thought
No. 98417 ID: 47160d

But we are moving Buddy into it so it doenst matter if it is lacking a soul or something
No. 98418 ID: 47160d

New thing, we let it make a copy of buddy when we use it so that if something goes wrong we can deal with it and then put Buddy back
No. 98419 ID: 32d627

nope, can't do!
modifications of existing items or entities can't be done without the help of machines or other objects, see:

i agree that the best course of action right now is just to be as kind to dad as we have been to primus and buddy. as far as we've seen, there's no real reason for a tcp to become hostile unless we start being jackasses. i feel like trying to scheme or preemptively outwit them only bite us in the ass down the line.

this, more than anything, is what makes me so nervous about dad. while dad's abilities are passive i could easily see how this kind of thing could still occur

at the same time i also feel like attempting to kill dad would Not Be a Good Idea - one reason being: i feel like dad could thwart any attack made against her by overriding the void's commands (unless im misunderstanding her abilities) and then we Absolutely have made an enemy of a very powerful tcp, if not all the other tcp in the process

i think the best thing to do is what a few other posters have suggested and be kind to dad, i dont think we can make a morality judgement about dad yet, but at the same time i think knowing the risks of making an enemy out of dad is good too
No. 98528 ID: f6442a

I don't think dadcat spawned with any ill will towards other tcps or the the void so it's best we keep it that way.

If Dad does become villainous, we just have to raise TCP away from her and teach them archery or something to take her out without her being able to take over. So far, she's been making good calls though, so I doubt it will come to that.

No. 99067 ID: 2c4dc5

So anyone wanna discuss what sort of cat we should make next?

I am not a fan of making more weapon TCPs, or making body part themed TCPs for suffering reasons.

So far designs I am a fan of:
Pros: Circle! Cute!
Cons: No idea

Pros: Could be very powerful
Cons: Could be very powerful

Pros: HOT DAMN THAT DESIGN, maybe provide energy or something?
Cons: Might need fuel of some kind

Pros: Great designs, probably some cool powers
Cons: There's got to be drawbacks for each of them, probably causing trouble to the environment they're in (we could work around this with some clever creating though.)

Cons: Might wanna squish stuff/end the world depending on how mythological we're getting

Pros: BEARD (and smithing)
Cons: Alcoholism likely if exposed to booze, possible urge to die in glorious battle

Of course, these are all total guesses, but I think it would be cool to see what designs/names everyone was thinking.

I think we should go for either a Material type or a Food type. Those are the two types we don't have covered.
No. 99071 ID: 99a64d

I vote leviathan or dwarf. The former because HOLY SHIT IT'S SO FUCKING CUTE GOD DAMN and it's probably pretty strong too, the latter because we dorf fort now.

We also don't have any body part types, but maybe that's for the best.

Medical skills are something we could tech to any TCP at any time. If we wanted a healer TCP I'd recommend a hospital cat. Hopefully it would have an effect similar to Primus, but stronger.
No. 99074 ID: 3e182c

What about some sort of TCP that was totally immune to god powers? Like a knight or crusader eldritch TCP or something. Could we make any cat immune to God powers? Sure, it would include us I'm sure, so our other TCP's would have to teach him, but he'd be able to confront other gods.

Perhaps this here leviathan or dwarf could be like that?

Out of the list I made I'd probably root for Mountain, Rock, Leviathan, or Dorf with a strong preference towards Mountain or Leviathan.

Immunity could be interesting, but lets be careful with the abstract kinda TCPs. Never know what power you'll get and that power is gonna be strong.
No. 99082 ID: 35151f

guys here's an idea:
Demigod TCP

let's just go fucking nuts with the op bullshit
nothing could ever go wrong because we personally are presumably intangible, ergo invincible.

Other potetially-broken-yet-useful ideas:
Overseer tcp (for that orweillian flair and as a possible boost so we can spread our attentions more efficiently)

SCP TCP (because puns and monsters go great together)

Painter TCP (this could either be entirely useless or entirely broken as fuck and I heavily support flipping that coin)

Lycra TCP (huggable AND skintight!)

Dwarf TCP (so we can expand the basement more efficiently and have a bunch of new locations that the quest creator won't need to draw every time we're in the overworld)

Planet TCP (this can only end hilariously for all involved)
No. 99083 ID: f562b1

Security, Containment, Protection is three nouns, not one.

Probably would just end up as a very rounded TCP with some lumps and a gel coating it (Except for the lumps) that looks like water, but that's still pretty fun sounding.

What would happen if we were to create two TCPs of the same type? I'm assuming they'd have different personalities, but how much would their appearance differ from their counterpart? For instance (and I am in no way suggesting we do this), if we made a second KNIFE TCP, would the blades be in a different spot or something?
No. 100489 ID: 2f5847

My running theory:
Elements of the construction seem somewhat randomized. I don't think that all DAD TCPs are female, that seems counterintuitive, but it's what happened with ours.

There are many kind of knives, so a 2nd Knife TCP might potentially have greater offense (if it favored Ka-Bars or bowie knives)
or maybe greater structural integrity (a butterfly knife TCP could probably stone it's blades between parallel bones)

so uh, life update
i've wanted to get back to updating TCP and maybequest, and i guess it's pretty obvious the regular updates haven't been working out yet
recently i was taken to the ER for stroke-like symptoms and diagnosed with hydrocephalus. it's very likely i was born with it or got it early, and it's equally likely i have permanent brain damage as a result.
i don't know the extent yet, or if my lifespan has been shortened any. i'm on state insurance + foodstamps and have just about zero income so the neurologists i have access to have waitlists a mile long. until i get placed on SSI/disability, my options are very limited.
what this means for TCP and future projects, i'm not sure. i know i will be continuing them to the best of my ability, as the universe TCP takes place in has been my comfort for many years, and i want nothing more than to be able to share it with people. updates may be slow, but none of my projects are or will be abandoned!

Hydrocephalus is weird. At least it's nowhere near the worst thing that could happen to you. :p
Ever heard of the man with no brain?
He was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus as a baby, but had his shunt removed at 14. Then went Thirty Years Leaving it untreated. When he finally had it put back in, he only had a tiny, thin strip of brain matter lining the skull. Thing was though, he had been living a normal life despite this. He had a job, a house, a wife, kids, the works. It was only when he eventually had trouble moving his legs did it become a problem.
So yeah. Let them have their waiting lists. You're probably not in any immediate danger, and the body is apparently really, really good at working around slow brain damage, what with it able to reprogram parts of itself to replace the functions of damaged tissue -n- all.

Also, yeah. The people working ER's are typically dicks. Overworked people generally are.

Anyway, like the others, I wish you luck!

Lets discuss what TCP we want to go for in detail as to not clutter up the main thread. I'm shooting for a defensive/support kind of TCP like maybe a stealthy one. What about an Armour or rather Knight TCP? It might not count as a weapon. Itty Bitty Kitty in a suit of plate-mail would be neat.

I'd be really careful with adding support types, as that's already Dad's role to a T.

Meanwhile, a potential lobster type TCP

Given that Void is the "God of making and manipulating the masks that float around them," I think it's easy to go beyond what Jukashi did (>>103146) but it's actually a pretty creative go.

Void being a mass of voices and wretch being an oozing mass of aphrodisiac... I could see some wacky dominance swapping possession like stuff going down.
No. 104089 ID: 12cd9f

If we have a theme of masks and identity as well as discord, maybe we could use that to avoid being eaten somehow? I mean what the mask looks like isn't what's actually there, except in a double-bluff situation. It's the thing under the mask that's real, not the mask itself, but if Void is Void then is there maybe nothing under the mask at all? Just a mask without a face. An act without an actor. How can you eat nothing?

So maybe we could have a sort of distributed self thing, and if we hide our masks all over the place then so long as we have more masks somewhere we can't be eaten/killed. Like it creates a sort of lich situation where we can get ressed if someone finds one of our hidden masks later. Or maybe if someone tries to eat us then it'd be like pulling off a mask only for there to be another mask underneath, and you can keep pulling off more masks but there's always another one. Or you take the last one off but then suddenly there's nothing left in front of you at all and you turn to look at the pile of masks you threw behind you and now there's a bunch of Void clones wearing them and silently staring at you.

We could be the spooky absurdist monsterthing.

When we start merking gods our TCP should wear purge masks.

Also, can we convert enemy cats by the use of Dad? We should try something along those lines once combat starts.
No. 104098 ID: 12cd9f


If not Dad, that could be a mask-theme thing as well. Masks are for acting like a different person, right? Maybe we could make, like, a magic mask that gets put on a TCP and then they count as one of our TCPs while they wear it. Since usurping control of a TCP is against the natural order of things it might also count for the "discord" aspect of Void's nature.

Other ideas: a mask of a god that lets them directly control a TCP as their avatar when they wear it, or for a lesser version, that allows that god to speak through said mask. Maybe not even requiring someone to wear it? If we want to set up a god team we could create a temple with shrines to each god, for the education of TCPs in theology and for meetings between multiple gods, since maybe the communicator only allows two-way communication? Also various other magic masks, like one that hides TCPs from the senses of other TCPs or even from other gods. Masks that give TCPs powers when they wear them.

Wretch's sludge influences behavior when ingested so it shouldn't be too much a stretch to say we could maybe make a thing that has effects on someone that uses it.

went to the ER again on the 30th, didn't make a ruckus about it because i still have more doctors to see before i can come to a final conclusion, BUT
good news: my hydrocephalus is normal pressure and uninfected, which means it is not likely to harm me now, or in the past. it's pretty much the best case scenario, but i'm not getting my hopes up until i have a neurologist appointment.
the bad news: my symptoms are still happening, which means there's still something severe going on. i'm gonna be seeing a lot of doctors this month, and will keep people posted as shit happens.

onto quest news: maybequest will also be returning soon, and i'm going to try and adopt a new tactic for making/handling quests, including TCP. yall as the readers probably won't see much of it, and it's still very much a work in progress, but hopefully when i've got it figured out, updates will be faster and more convenient.

i've been taking custom TCP commissions for a while now and want to open it up to yall as well, considering they're pretty damn fun for me and i figure if there's gonna be interest, it's probably here. i make bases for these little guys and recolor to match people's commissions, and you can get one for a lot cheaper if you order on a base. using bases helps us work on a personal project of indexing all the types we can think of, which i hope to release some time next year.

the team that works with me on TCP got over 200 types based already and a generator that's made...i want to say 17 septillion? 17 sextillion? combinations of unique TCPs with strange and bizarre qualities, if you want to pay 10 bucks for a random one. these randomized little guys also have the potential to be more than one type.

i also have regular design commissions listed here: https://twitter.com/rinmortis/status/807724346533822464 and if you're down to get a TCP (or anything) of your own, email me at ringormortis@gmail.com and i will hook you up.

Favored TCP ideas:

Dwarf cat, as a craftsman/engineer for our larger projects.

Pheonix, giant, or Leviathan, Marnet turned out nicely, I think there's a lot of potential in powerful and beefy creature-types, especially considering how Spit won't know what they are. We could also do a body type if we feel like being more conventional.

Void type, that's "Void", not "void", if we did an abstract I'd want it to be this one, we'd have maximum synergy with it and the best shot at controlling it.

We might want to try a spy, eye, sight, or satellite type, to get the information advantage over Spit.
No. 109510 ID: 9876c4

I'm not a very good powergamer, but the idea of a dwarven TCP makes me giggle a bit.

particularly if it's a Scottish Fold that speaks in brogue.
No. 109529 ID: 0c367f

Exactly what I was going to say: Big fan of the idea of some sort of TCP we can use for surveillance/espionage.

You also mention "I think there's a lot of potential in powerful and beefy creature-types, especially considering how Spit won't know what they are." The fact that we know about things unique to Earth is probably a big advantage.

For these reasons I'm currently leaning towards a CHAMELEON TCP.
No. 109535 ID: dd5b4d

Go for maximum versatility: SQUID TCP

Camouflage! Jet nozzle! Tentacles! Possibly a big type if we get a giant squid.

Or perhaps octopus. It just doesn't roll off the tongue as well as squid though.
No. 109536 ID: db0da2

Now that I've slept on it I think a sight TCP is a necessity. We have to know what Spit is doing as soon as possible to avoid being blindsided. A camouflage-capable TCP is all well and good, but it still requires sending a cat into Spit's territory whenever we want to learn anything. With a sight TCP we'll be able to spy on Spit remotely, possibly even through walls! Abstract types are supposedly dangerous, but I can't help but feel that the hype can only help us in this case, given that "sight" is about as far from any combat related concept as possible.

If we focus on making things to surprise Spit with, then a Technician Type or Alchemist Type might be useful.

Although knowledge on what Spit is doing would certainly be useful, something like a Surveillance Type or a Spy Type.

Then again Spit's speciality is being sadistic from what the other's said, so maybe a Therapist Type might help. Also since it seems some TCP's abilities are painful to use.

So many choices.
No. 109543 ID: db0da2

You're both thinking too small. Clearly, the only way we can adequately protect ourselves is with an omnipotence TCP.
No. 109544 ID: 67456a

To put it bluntly, the sheer power required for an Omnipotence TCP would probably completely destroy it before it could do one thing. I mean, Buddy nearly killed herself casting magic, and she's only knife type.

It's like trying to channel an entire nuclear plant through a lightbulb. Just not a good idea.

No. 109555 ID: dbf8a5

If it's camouflage you want, why not go all the way to an INVISIBLE, INTANGIBLE, PLOTERGEIST TCP. Instead of just masking its visual presense, it could hide inside of walls to avoid being smelled, heard, or touched. It would be the perfect saboteur, able to float right through the enemy's defenses for easy access to their base's vulnerable internal systems. It would also provide a good opportunity to talk to the enemy's TCPs in order to convert them.

I don't think we should make another weapon type, but if we did I would want it to be...

The cat of promised victory, EXCALICAT! Literal guaranteed victory is probably the best ability a TCP could have, but even if it doesn't quite work that way I can't imagine Catiburn being anything other than stunningly powerful. The cost to use its abilities could be prohibitively high, but if it takes on the characteristics of Excalibur's scabbard as well it should be durable enough to take it, though I wouldn't want to try making it use magic.

I'm a bit irked that both Wretch and Eastwood are somehow coming to the conclusion that Void is either a habitual liar or flirts with everyone when we don't actually do either of those things. We wanted to fuck with Spit because Spit is a bad person. Why was this impossible to get across?

ill take some blame for this, personally
i was pretty offput and distressed by the sheer amount of flirting and the nature of it towards spit, and i was hesitant to include a lot of it in voidsy's actual responses (when doing so would have been a lot more accurate towards the character)

my bad there, honestly.
No. 109677 ID: 3abd97

/quest/ has something of an irreverent and disrespectful attitude towards villains in general. It's easy to be flippant when any real consequences or threats exist within the narrative, but not outside it. And refusing to take certain people seriously sometimes throws the off their game.

Honestly, blatantly sexualizing threats could be seen as something of a defense mechanism, or a power play.
No. 109678 ID: 65ec8d

There might have been something lost in the format. We're using text, after all, and the difference between a suggester ironically flirting and actually flirting isn't necessarily going to be clear.

Like, personally, I posted a "flirty" suggestion, and I assumed that from context it would be obvious that it was an attempt to mess up Spit's "intimidating silence" ego act by pretending to do the opposite of being scared, not any sort of actual flirting. But I can see how, from a look back at some of the beings /quest/ has flirted with unironically, it might not actually have been obvious.
No. 109682 ID: 79a07e

Pretty much what >>109677 said. We're not being flirty because they're actually hot, we're being flirty because we're MOCKING their attempts at being intimidating. It's defiant blitheness in the face of the enemy. They want us to be afraid? We're going to be the EXACT OPPOSITE, just to mess with them.
No. 109684 ID: 79a07e

Furthermore, /quest/ has a thing where we're defend friends and people we like to the death (not to mention if they're our waifu like Wretch is we'll follow to the ends of the earth) but our enemies will just get insults, scorn, and general attempts at total annihilation.

And spite. We really really like doing things for spite if we don't like you.
No. 109685 ID: b7883c

>We wanted to fuck with Spit because Spit is a bad person. Why was this impossible to get across?
I think the issue is that us flirting ironically out of spite is in practice almost identical to us flirting genuinely. Doing the almost exact same behavior with completely different meanings in different contexts can get confusing when seen out of context.
No. 109686 ID: 79a07e

Fair. I think it'd come down to a tonal difference, which over text is...obviously impossibly hard. I think maybe we could've done with some slightly better wording. Still, though. I would've thought personally that considering our discussion about psyching her out, we'd have gotten our intention across- but like you said. Context in text is hard.

Plans for the next thread:

Upscale alchemy operation. Replace the dinky herb garden and single tree with a massive vault of botany. Try fertilizer and other such things to see if we can improve our operation. Hydroponics should give us higher yields faster, but we should experiment and compare both methods to see if there are any complications. Get bees for the trees. Maybe expand to other magical plants to see if we can't get some ironskin or swiftness potions.

Test if the Eastwood mask increases the effectiveness of the potions.

Try making an inverted Spit mask to act as an anesthetic.

Make more copies of all of the masks except Spit's. We'll probably only use the Miller and Eastwood masks, but just having the others won't hurt. Also make extra wands and hats so that we can use all the cats' abilities at once.

Test what Jasper's wand and hat powers are.

Fortify the base: traps, armor, locks, shuttered embrasures, more horrors, etc.

Finish testing wand and hat powers, keep anesthetics and potions close by. Test range, line of sight, and interactivity between powers.

We should ask someone how the tcp defection system works. What does it take for a tcp to count as officially defected, do they just have to want it? What side do they count as being on: no side, their own side? Can they be adopted by another god, and, if so, does this bypass the 5 tcp per god limit? Can defected cats survive the end of the game? Can you trade cats by telling them to defect to another side? If your tcp defects are you able to spawn a replacement?

I'd also like to become more unified strategically with our allies, they all seem to be pretty much doing their own things at the moment and that's less than ideal. We should all be using the same level of technology and force, so that no one pushes it too far and starts an arms race, and no one shoots themselves in the foot by holding back too much. We should make sure that all of our bases are equally outfitted with facilities, meaning they all create their own alchemy setups, we fortify our bases to the same level, and we copy good ideas from each other. We should also discuss with the others what tcps they plan on making. Food, creature, body, and form types are all consistently good as long as you don't pick something completely stupid, but weapon types are nearly useless without magic enhancing their powers, we should encourage the former and discourage the latter. We also have the advantage of being from Earth, meaning we have access to a bunch of potentially powerful tcp ideas which we should share with them. Container and machine types could be great, but they require planning and coordination to be useful, so we should talk with the others about maybe scheming something along those lines. Our communicator doesn't have a group call function, but we might be able to work around that by having the others stay in the same physical room (this has the added bonus of keeping Spit from trying anything), or by doing something tricky with calling multiple people at once. We should have our tcps do joint training exercises to build camaraderie, and give our cats time to share all the stuff we taught them as preparation for the UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY with the others.

We could probably end this whole thing pretty quickly by getting another god to create a DEICIDE tcp and teach it MORTALITY, JUSTICE, DUTY, SACRIFICE, and SPIT (we would also probably want to lie to it and downplay the risk involved in using its power, maybe even convince it there's an afterlife or something; it's scummy, but one life is easily worth it to save all those lives Spit would take). Of course, I doubt we could actually convince any of our allies to go through with this, they'd argue that the risk of the plan backfiring is too great, and they'd be right, given that narrative convention would demand that it backfire in order to avoid an anticlimax unless we tried the plan at the absolute last second,, but we might be able to convince them to do it as a last resort.

We might want to give our cats bodycams so that we can see what happens in the unhallowed sanctuary. We should install an airport security style checkpoint at the entrance to the sanctuary to prevent Spit from doing the same.

The bodycam sounds like a good idea. I feel Spit would just do the same in response though. Possibly even finding a way to abuse it.

We can't. We have 5 TCPs, that's the max.

What if we disguise it as accessories?

I meant "we" as in one of our allies.

I know, hence:
>We should install an airport security style checkpoint at the entrance to the sanctuary to prevent Spit from doing the same.

This is a good idea.

We should also get someone to make a sniper type, or something else long-ranged to fill that gap in our team composition. I prefer sniper type to sniper rifle type. It would get identity synergy with sniper rifles and wouldn't lose health every time it attacks. It would also be more versatile, given that it would have a larger health pool and abilities relating not just to attacking, but to (to quote Wikipedia):
>detection, stalking, and target range estimation methods, camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition.
A sniper type would be especially potent against Spit, given that her base is in the middle of a wide open desert with no cover.

good to see some discussion going in here! still no ETA on act 3 considering the massive amount of prep that needs to be done, but we are hard at work on it (and probably going to make a new disthread soon for quests set in the same universe...because that is coming)

in the meantime, my brother roman and i are looking to get some serious repairs done on our RV- aka our house. we decided to go forward with a goofy little thing to raise money and reward yall for helping us out: a VERY NONCANON horror mutation drive for eastwood. donate a dollar, eastwood mutates a little. goal is to turn him into a horrible monster and also fix the giant holes in my roof! everybody wins!
http://homebrewdeviants.tumblr.com/post/159961476886/spring-2017-morbit-mutation-drive here's the link for it, feel free to check out all the rewards (including a shot at getting your very own canon morbit god, shhhh) and share with your friends.

Um, is that the right paypal link? The name doesn't come up as Roman Mortis.

The icon is the same as Roman's twitter, at least.

Unfortunately for both of us we have to use our old names for PayPal until we get our names legally changed.

So how will mutation choices and other non-commission donation bonuses be handled? Via email?
