    Previous thread: >>7004361

    These are the four first individuals you encountered:
    The one who disbelieved your telepathy is a dark skinned male. Fairly short, fairly chubby. Yet again, comes from a location you do not give a shit about. Housh
    The one who was curious about you is female. Also small. Fair skinned. Fair haired. Location you don't care about. Alexia.
    Mikhail is tall, masculine, fair hair, fair skin. Relationship with Alexia. Same location as Alexia, doesn't really matter.
    The final one who was quite scared of you is both light and dark skinned. Kinda like your original skin, but yellowy. Tian.

    Based on your other opinions, you try to make them consider harming you or even trying to take a sample of you a crime - since you are, of course, such a wonderful - albeit terrifying - creature. You isolate the leader, individual called Filipp. Serious chap - but you try to enter his mind.

    It's difficult. If you try to control his mind, your influence over the others will be drastically reduced. Do so anyway?

    sounds like he would be a hard nut to crack. We most likely have the experience on our side when it comes to mind games, but still. Can we get any kind of readings off him at all? We know he's in charge here. How does he feel about us, currently?

    Once in we will be his favoured pet, he will demand all results to come to him. EVERYTHING will run through him. No one must make any contact with us.

    Going with advice from the previous thread as well as the common vote, you do it.

    However, before you do it, you push yourself to your limits, unleashing a sudden ecstatic burst in the humans, dopamines rushing through them, leaving them quite flustered, confused and excited.

    Then, you smash your way into the mind of Filipp. His mind is your puppet - for the time being. You can convince the human to do everything except things that endanger itself or go against everything they philosophically stand for.

    Everything he knows, you know. You burn his memories on to your memories. It's a surprisingly quick process, but it takes a lot of effort. You feel quite worn out after it - it's taken a small toll on you.
    You do this. He wants to find out as much as you as possible. He doesn't want any communication with anyone outside of the encampment. He informs the others of this almost zealously.

    Good, he has cut off communications with the outside world. We need to ensure these are enforced. See if we can't uncover what objects around the camp are used for the communication, and send one of our runner spawn to chew through some wires/mangle some panels, and ensure that they can't communicate, even if they wanted to.

    I propose we now enter into a slow period of mental assimilation of the humans. While they believe they are studying us we in turn study and manipulate them... limiting what knowledge they can gain to us to that which we wish them to (including false conclusions) and all the while making them more loyal to US.

    We need to test how strong we can make these feelings and wether we can make them last. I believe the plan of making one humans zealous love for us reinforce anothers may be useful if it is possible.

    So. Time skip:
    - Make the technicians disable stuff.
    - Slip in a few thoughts about a new being, a new god - concepts about a 'Slul-Huggoth' and you being evidence of such a being.
    - Enforce your will upon the humans - examine their memories and burn theirs on to yours.

    You're able to keep in contact with Fury over a long distance - who still has a captive Omniarch.

    You're also able to communicate with the watching spawn.

    Last post before heading out:

    Check up on Fury, see how he is holding up. He is indeed one of our favorites, and we must ensure his well being and sanity. The ordeal with the Omniarch might have put him a little on edge, and we don't want him going off and doing something rash.

    We do not need to remind him we are the will of Slul-Hogoth, but we should remind him we will be back soon, and are looking forward to everything being in nice order.

    No need for the epeen. Leader was a great idea but Murray is right that making peace with the omniarch is a bad one.

    Time passes. This is actually surprisingly luxurious. The humans have got enough foodstuffs to last them approximately a month - within fifteen days, however, they'll get resupplied. So, you get fed. Your spawn take watch from the distance and you keep up your communication with Fury, keeping him informed of the situation.

    Humans... Humans are surprisingly easy to manipulate. Easier than a bear, anyway. By spreading your focus over them, you've slowly managed to change their view of you from curious to fascinated to almost damn worshipping. They're often confused by their illogical lines for thought - influenced by you - but you make them forget this.

    Eventually, the fourth day comes. Fury notifies you that the latest batch of eggs has hatched. In three days time, the Fury-Omniarch children will hatch and the Namespawn will hatch as well. Omniarch has also been executed - Fury seems quite smug about this. As for the flotsam that the Omniarch was gathering - he can't quite tell what it is. It seems to be a burrow that he was going to try and reinforce and seal up, for some reason another. The burrow is empty.

    It's difficult to describe the atmosphere in the tents. It's confusingly tranquil. You're still putting quite a lot of effort into making sure that the humans don't conduct so much research, leaving the poor creatures with very little to do. You can feel the mental instability growing in your latest pet humans.

    Remain in their camp for a few may days. Request that they bring you selections of animals to try. This will give us more DNA to sample when we gestate.

    When it is getting close to the resupply arriving, give them a serious mental impression to keep us a secret, and tell them that we will go and hide so that the resupply team doesn't steal their discovery.

    Nobody is taking your suggestions seriously, because you are not saying shit that is beneficial to us at all.

    I suggest combining the previous ideas. Get fed as many exotic animals as possible until the resupply team arrives. Before they do, have the team convince everyone that it was all a hoax cooked up by some dumb country folk, and that they're packing up and heading home.

    Then if they want to go ahead and move here to rejoin us, they're welcome.

    Once we leave them, that is before the resupply team arrives, we leave the camp, and instead of returning to our brood where we may be followed, we go out into the woods, dig ourselves a little burrow, and gestate in peace.

    You manage to convince a handful of the scientists to reluctantly give up some precious specie samples that they have, of various different creatures. Mostly just animals that they thought could be identified with what they heard was here. And since there were so many shapes and sizes, it's quite varied, really. Snakes, octopi, bats, spiders. Just small specimens though, kept very, very well preserved, for analyzing and comparison.

    The preservatives only add to the delicious flavour.

    So, you folks wanted to occupy the time of the scientists by making them perform various faux experiments and pray to Slul-Huggoth, right?

    Anything else you want to subject them to over the next few days or is that it?

    Also, did you want to communicate directly with the leader, Filipp?

    You work on crafting this memetic virus - a psychic cell, of sorts, that you will place withins the minds of others.

    The virus encourages:
    - Belief in Slul-Huggoth.
    - The preaching of Slul-Huggoth.

    The virus spreads when:
    - A nearby sapient acknowledges the name 'Slul-Huggoth'.

    Is this correct?

    If so, this psychic memetic virus will be a powerful weapon. You will be creating a seperate entity and you will be implanting it into a single individual, from which it will spread to other individuals. It will require you to permanantly sacrifice a small portion of a resource that we shall call 'potential' - you're creating and lovingly crafting a completely seperate entity here. It shall require blood, sweat and tears.

    By creating this, you create a powerful weapon but you also limit your maximum potential.

    For all we know potential is what causes our advanced sentients. We might be best to wait until our brood is back to a good strength and then get an underling to create the meme for us, sacrificing the potential of someone who is NOT the Patriarch.

    Leaving behind the humans for the time being to handle the situation, you travel towards the location of the hive, ensuring you're not followed. Your spawn come with you. A handful of Batspawn stay behind to spectate.

    The advanced sentients are an asset to the hive, but we need to get there to imprint them with loyalty to the hive ASAP. Our mistake in the past has been not to take a properly parental role in our spawn's early development. It's what went wrong with Schmahkah, it's what went wrong with the Omniarch, it's what nearly went wrong when the False Messiah started turning the young against us.

    We need to establish that we are the Patriarch, that we are the embodiment of Slul-Hugoth's will, that we are awesome and that we love our children who follow our example and act in the interest of the hive.

    Also, I'd suggest imprinting a fierce revulsion against patricide. It is abominable for a child to turn upon its parent. This is Slul-Hugoth's word.

    Also, the point that we have been very cautious in developing and expanding our brood, whereas the Omniarch was PROGRESS AT ALL COSTS! He had similar abilities to us, but applied them differently.

    Because as was mentioned in the IRC log one night, the Omnissah was basically modeled after what spiral energy would be if it was corrupt.

    Don't draw it to a close. Just put us into a position where we can start over simply, but with a slightly more advantageous position.
    Force us to do something drastic.

    I like the idea of consuming the entire brood save for a few choice Prime Spawns and then controlling a human to get us a steady and safe place to establish an enormous, permanent hive.

    We won't know our full limits untill we reach them. For example we can not now gain other special abilities like telekinesis... we didn't learn that untill after we had passed the point. So in order to learn what it will cost us we'll have to never again doing anything that could limit our Gestation Potential...

    For that matter choosing any growth over evo limits our potential as evo is tied to our natural abilities like our psychic abilities... so all the percentages we've put into evo have limited our potential.

    If we use the virus as end-game then it will be less effective. Hence why it was designed ot be subtle. It would essentially create sleeper agents.

    If you want to know why the Omniarch looked like that, I enjoyed the concept art.

    The in-character reason behind it is that the mind of the human that he consumed affected future gestations, subconsciously shifting the Omniarch to look more human with every gestation, even if no human was consumed.

    Then there's the fact that the first Omniarch was consumed by his child, body and mind, after burning its mind on to its child's.

    Then that second Omniarch was consumed by its child, body and mind, after burning its minds on to its child's.

    The cycle would've continued. The latest Omniarch would keep on being consumed by its child. They would've become a cluster of thousands of advanced sentients, all with the same goal, all with the same aim, all with the same mind.

    That was why the Omniarch was so insane. Even though it only had roughly the same number of gestations, it was the size it was through selective breeding. The largest bred with the largest, the most powerful bred with the most powerful and consumed the most powerful.

    Not exactly Sleeper Agents. But the way it was designed meant it would infect slowly and mainly just people who had already heard about our existence so it would have a similar effect.

    Why didn't we think of doing this?

    Wouldnt the new body have a new "potential" maximum?

    Goddamn this is making me even more pissed off about the virus-cowards.

    What would happen if we could steal its mind?
    (if we had that ability)

    Because you would effectively feel yourself dying. Over. And over. And over. It's hella painful.

    The original Omniarch was willing to sacrifice itself, over and over and over - for eternity, so that it could become the pinnacle of evolution.

    The ultimate organism. Everything else was just a stepping stone on that path.

    The virus thing was over-kill in this position. Plus, it only worked with a trigger word=LAME.
    Second, it would expose us to the world; exactly the LAST THING we fucking need at the moment.

    I would use something like that on a city-state, county, nation level.

    Planet level.

    In the grim darkness of the near future there is only SLUG.

    It would only infect on a trigger word. The effects were permenant.

    It wouldn't expose us to the world. It would make them more susceptible to us when something else exposed us to the world.

    That guy was obsessed with becoming the ultimate organism, of dominating everything, of consuming everything, of growing forever at an exponential rate, of consuming the universe, of becoming the universe, of becoming everything and nothing at the same time.

    The Omniarch had big dreams.

    You're extrapolating a lot from some very vague comments by Bio.
    >> Anonymous 12/05/09(Sat)00:08 No.7007871
    No. It was specific enough.

    With madslugs addition of "the slug is the avatar of slul-hugoth" it was pretty much perfect. Hence why there was a great cost and why bio said it would eb a powerful weapon.

    But you know what you didn't think about?

    That would be BORING.

    It would take out a big portion of what we anticipate to be fun in the future, namely taking over humanity.

    But it wouldnt take them all out... we'd still have plenty to kill... and how long do you think this quest is actually going to run for? Bio has already mentioned wanting to end it soon.
