    Previous thread: >>6792547

    You awaken from the strange dream.

    Your body is different. You're still male, but now you're 5'8". You have a slightly more human posture, rather than skulking around like a bear - however, you still appear quite beastial and your movement is something like than of an ape. Your arms are muscular and more human, although they're still quite capable of bear-style maulings. You no longer have any articulated claws on your chest. You can taste a slow-acting paralyzing poison on your claws and harpoons. Your four eyes have developed into six strange slits that contain beady lil' red eyes capable of highly advanced vision.
    Your skin has darkened, slowly approaching the colour of dried blood. You chitin is blackening. Blood red spirals are beginning to appear all over the chitin as well. Your face is also covered with a chitinous sort of skull-mask - quite intimidating and terrifying.

    This is what you've become. What are the first actions that you take?

    You let out a primordial roar as you leave your chamber to greet the hive. Your children all kneel before you, basking in your glory. Messiah has impaled all sorts of skulls on to the spiral spikes that cover its body, while Fury is covered with a cloak fashioned from an animal pelt, dyed with blood. The cloak is covered in all sorts of trinkets and fetishes. Fury also carries a vicious looking spear, with a haft of wood and a cruel bone tip.

    Messiah roars at the top of its psychic voice.

    "Praise Slul-Huggoth, for the Patriarch has returned! Now we may experience true evolution and true expansion, and our race shall grow to its full potential! Hail Slul-Huggoth!"

    Messiah sends out a psychic scream, burning that thought into the minds of lesser beings. They repeat it zealously.

    "There is not an ounce of hate or anger in that shell of a creature - I don't like it. I don't like it one bit. It's almost as if Messiah is becoming the Omniarch to beat the Omniarch. That's what I think of it, anyway."

    Paranoid hypothesis:

    Messiah is setting himself up to usurp our places as Voice of Slul-Hugoth.

    He is implanting seeds of loyalty in the new generation, not to us, but to either himself of Slul-Hugoth directly - and as self-appointed High Priest, really that means loyalty to him. Vile treachery, to be punished most strongly.

    On the other hand, it's worth checking Fury's story before making a decision either way. I suggest getting Messiah on his own and quizzing him on matters more closely - and also doing a psychic examination of the younger generation, trying to pick out whether Messiah has been meddling with their psychology in improper ways.

    Fury and Primarch didn't change into Omniarch swayed guys, and I'm going to guess it is because we were all ready advanced sentients BEFORE we took on qualities of the Omniarch.

    But poor tank, he was not as developed mentally as us, and was pretty submissive. So the powerfull mind of Omni has leeched into him a bit.

    One wolf falls, then another. Another fall before Fury lets out an irritated sigh and charges from the undergrowth with a psychic roar. The spear is hurled from his hand and lances through a wolf's skull effortlessly. He charges into another, grabbing its bottom jaw and tearing it off. The Speedspawn rush forward to join in the fray and the Tentaspawn suddenly dive from the trees that they had climbed up, landing on the wolves, slipping their tentacles beneath their skin and stripping the canines of their hides.

    The Messiah stuff is top priority. We might be getting jumpy, but it's important to either expose treachery - or reassure ourselves that all is well - as soon as possible, before suspicions and paranoia fester to the point where we're panicking and making stupid decisions.

    Go back to the burrow. Brainprobe some of the young spawn to see what Messiah's been up to. Interview Messiah directly and get his take on things. Make a decision based on our findings.

No diviiding the swarm garbage, how has that helped us in the past? Look at Schmucakah(?) and the Omniarch. We would be spreading out control too thin.

    Try to dodge his first charge and buy time. We could try psychic powers, but it seems underhanded, so let's handle this physically. Fury is much quicker than us but he is missing an arm. We're probably much stronger, use this to our advantage. We need to grapple/wrestle him, with only one arm he won't be effective at this. The main thing is don't let him overwhelm us, he's too fucking fast to let this get up close and personal on his terms.

    Do what we can to read his mind and anticipate his intent. Counter his moves before he makes them, or subtly nudge him off-course. No need for big psychic hammerblows (which could end up injuring him anyway), this is an opportunity to practise using a lighter touch in a situation where we won't die if we get it wrong.

    It's disappointingly easy. Almost immediately, you cause Fury to turn away from you, stopping him from charging you. The emotions were already there, you just had to increase them slightly. And Fury obviously recognizes this.

    "This method of training that you propose is flawed - I do not wish to harm you. That makes it so much easier to stop me from harming you."

    He brushes himself and dons his shaman robe and grabs his spear once more.

    I guess that makes sense, but why the fuck is he charging the Primarch then? He should have attacked with his own mind then. Is it a diversion of some sort on his part? If it is a psychic battle try to redirect him, confuse and calm him down. His name is Fury afterall, make him lose his sense of purpose by calming him. Try to multitask and attack both physically and psychically. That's a good lesson for Fury; to multitask the mind and body.

    You hear the shrill orders flying around before you even see the hive.

    The slugspawn are bringing back insects, the deepspawn are bringing back fish and jellies and the batspawn and bringing back birds and Meesiah is constantly motivating them, constantly burning loyalty into their brains, over and over and over again. Due to the relative strength of it, advanced sentients are able to resist it - at this level, anyway.

    You bring in the wolves.

    If we can, we should resolve this with wisdom and guidance, not bitchslapping.

    We need to remind Messiah of the difference between ourselves and the Traitors.

    Both Schmahkah and the Omniarch sought to dominate - to impose their will upon their kin, to be undisputed masters and rule over the rest of their hive. Subjugation, oppression, destruction of the mind and the will. Rule through fear and pain.

    Instead, we seek to create a brood, a true family in which the individuals work together not because they have been commanded to do so, but because they trust and respect those who lead. And we seek to lead using these tools - trust, respect, love. We are the Patriarch, the First, and we lead the brood because we have love for our spawn, and wish to see them prosper.

    To toil in servitude to a dominating overlord is not prosperity.
