    201 KB Doppleganger Damacy. Prime Mover !e2iGzkKSGQ 04/07/10(Wed)21:42 No.9047990  
    I was inspired by the recent "Doppleganger Damacy" thread, and decided to try running it as a quest.

    Original Thread:

    The basic premise: You start out as a generic creature with no voice, no skills, feats, or special abilities whatsoever, and every stat at 10.
    Whenever you eat a creature you acquire one of its traits. Permanently. For the purpose of this quest, that means I'll give you a short list to choose from.
    >> Prime Mover !e2iGzkKSGQ 04/07/10(Wed)21:42 No.9047995
    You open your eyes in a dank alleyway. It's a couple of hours after nightfall. You're in a city of some sort- probably not one of the most respectable- with no memory of how you came to be here.
    You DO remember what you are. You are a blank slate, an example of limitless potential. You will survive. You will consume. You will adapt. You will grow. Given half a chance, you could be a god. But for now, you are frail, and realize that discretion is a must.

    Possessions: None

    What do?

    Search the alleyway for signs of life-- rats, stray cats or dogs, sleeping hobos. If it's something that you can catch and eat, do it, but use discretion.

    As quietly as you can, you make your way up a rickety metal ladder nearby. From this vantage point, you observe the alley.

    There is a dumpster in the alleyway, from which issues the sounds of snoring. You're fairly confident that there might also be a rat or two within. You cannot see any cats or dogs from where you are, although it would probably not take too long to track one down.

    A human in tattered, unwashed clothes snores within. He reeks of alcohol. You reach for a discarded bean can, and draw it quickly across his trachea. His eyes snap open, and he manages a faint gurgling. After a brief struggle, he is no more, and he disappears down your gullet.

    As you rapidly digest 135 pounds of hobo, you feel your muscles tightening, your nerves firing slightly faster. Evidently, this man would have been quite agile, were he sober.

    Searching the dumpster further, you find a Cricket Bat. This would likely be handier in a confrontation than a discarded can of beans.

    A wise choice! You'd already acquired some hair from eating a primate, but it's now growing considerably thicker. Your teeth grow slightly, and your ears come to a slightly harsher point. More relevantly, however, you're now capable of clinging to walls with your hands and feet.
    15 foot climb speed gained!

    The street beyond the alleyway is cobbled. From where you stand, you can make out a few unlit storefronts, and one or two that still seem to be operating at this hour.
    They mostly seem to be establishments of the entertainment industry- a couple of bars, and what might be a brothel.

    I suggest we find another hobo. There's nothing on the roof and we can't jump from building to building yet.

    So search the roof for roof hobos. If there are none, go back down into another alley or something.

    Also, we need to think about what we need. We're a bit deformed already, so we don't look like a human. Speech is a bit useless, unless we use it to lure people towards us, for instance.

    In any case, we need some way of moving around unseen and fast.

    Toxoplasma gondii is a microorganism that reproduces in the gut of a cat. To get there it infects rats that come into contact with cat shit. It alters rats to be attracted to the smell of cat urine so they're more likely to be eaten.

    Many of these buildings have multiple stories, and it would not be unreasonable to expect the proprietor of some of these stores from living on the second floor.

    "Godsdammit, Tommy, this is the last time you wake me up! I hope you enjoy your sleep, because I'm tanning your hide in the morning." He walks back to his bedroom. Shortly after he leaves, the mother walks up to the bed, and moves to kiss her son goodnight.

    The woman passes out. However, her husband seems to have heard the struggle. You have just enough time to stash her under the bed and take up an ambush position by the door.
    The husband runs into the room, wielding a cricket bat not unlike your own. You smash him hard in the back of the head, and he goes down.

    They are both delicious.

    The animal shelter is about half an hour away. Infiltrate the bar and the vinter's house first, or go straight there?

    You are now aware that you're in a small city known as Piedmont, in the kingdom of Ker. It's populated almost entirely by humans, though members of other PHB races are not unheard of.
    People generally stay the fuck out of the sewers when they can help it.

    You find a mirror and examine yourself. You could indeed pass for human. Likely, something would eventually give you away, but by that point, hopefully, it would be too late.

    You clean up the house, as best as you can. You find 38 gp and some Delicious Bread. You generally prefer meat, the fresher the better, but you can take it with you if you wish.

    OP, going to bed but I'd like to tell you first that this has been fun. I had a few doubts when I started reading but you've run it well.

    I hope you keep going to whatever conclusion comes, instead of letting it die after one thread like so many quests with potential. Also, I'm curious as to how you're handling attacks. Is it that we're attacking things with so little HP/AC that they tend to go down in one flatfooted hit?

    I'm fine with you using a diceroller for speed instead of rolling here, but it might be cool if you posted dice results. I'm fine either way really.

    Among other things, the sewers do indeed contain alligators. They've been confirmed to grow up to five feet in length, and you remember hearing tall tales about ones three times that size.

    You know of a nearby church of St. Cuthbert, and one of Pelor several blocks away.
    This family attends services at the Pelorian church every Friday around noon. It's currently Tuesday night, around 3 am.

    There's also the animal shelter, the tavern, the brothel, the vinter's house, or anywhere else you can think of.
    You currently have a Little Boy's Voice, and look passably human.

    Retardation aside what happens when we reach the animal shelter? Absorbing so many animals will make us lose whatever human surfacing we've gained by digesting the family.

    Here's hoping there's some Elven druid in training caretaker to 'om nom nom' in order to balance out the feral ball of death we seem focused on becoming.

    Looting the house gets you a suit of Leather Armor. It clearly hasn't been worn in a long time. It also isn't your size, but you can shift your body to accommodate it. There isn't much in the way of cash, but a few trinkets can conceivably be fenced for 30 gp. You also find a scroll of Calm Animals, and one of Summon Nature's Ally I.

    So, what is it, druid spells or 17 wisdom? Bear in mind that things with 17 wisdom are pretty rare, but that 0-level spells will let you use the scrolls.

    You feel your mind opening to the flow of the world around you, to the very heartbeat of nature itself. Old Maggie picked up a lot in her six decades of life, and you have wrested quite a bit from her now.
    Wisdom 17 gained! (Remember, wisdom also affects your senses).

    You make your way towards the cages. The animals are uneasy around you, but you look enough like Old Maggie to pull out a cat or two.

    You eat enough cats to gain ALL of the following:
    Low Light Vision
    Stealthy (+2 Hide and Move Silently)
    4 ranks in Hide and Move Silently
    4 ranks in Balance and Jump
    2 Claws (1d3)
    Bite (1d4)
    +2 base reflex save

    By this point, all the animals around you are making a tremendous din. You are about to star devouring the dogs, when you hear a much deeper growling behind you.
    It seems that Old Maggie had an animal companion, in the form of a grey wolf.

    We're like a discount Bene Gesserit with this voice but combined with Old Maggie's know how either getting the wolf to put down it's guard or align with us is a possibility.

    Natural Armor Bonus
    A natural armor bonus improves Armor Class resulting from a creature's naturally tough hide. Natural armor bonuses stack with all other bonuses to Armor Class (even with armor bonuses) except other natural armor bonuses. Some magical effects (such as the barkskin spell) grant an enhancement bonus to the creature's existing natural armor bonus, which has the effect of increasing the natural armor's overall bonus to Armor Class. A natural armor bonus doesn't apply against touch attacks.

    Mostly dogs and cats. Anything not obviously domesticated, Old Maggie released back into the wild. There are a few caged birds, and a few larger dog cages (Riding Dogs), but you can't reach them from where you are.
    You also seem to recall there being a single Camel tethered out back.

    Pelting the wolf with knives might be bad idea since it will tip off the pursuers that an intelligent creature was involved.

    You start hurling kitchen knives at the wolf. They were certainly not designed for this, but most of them find their marks.
    The wolf starts jumping in the air, trying to bite you. You wisely relocate to the ceiling.
    You are down to your last knife when it whimpers, and passes out due to blood loss.

    You then eat your way through the few birds she has. You develop a membrane under your arms. You don't think you'll be able to properly fly just yet (you'll have to eat a medium sized or larger flying creature for that), you will be able to glide just fine.
    When winds are favourable, you have a fly speed of 40 ft (clumsy), but this is not suitable for extended travel.

    You also find a single Small Viper. It tries to bite you, but you catch it deftly, and eat it like a large spaghetti noodle.

    Poison, but only if it has secondary damage.

    Otherwise, initiative.

    Also, I find it hard to believe there's just one snake, look for more.

    Incorporating some of the snake's nervous structure, you streamline your reaction time still further.
    Improved Initiative gained!

    I'm going to bed after you eat the camel, so make it snappy.

    Restating that improved initiative will allow us to get the first action in even if we are surprised.


    Also we should save our venom searches for SPIDERS. Liquification is slightly more badass than mere nerve paralysis unless it destroys our food target.

    Spiders use their venom for hunting. It would hardly be fair if you couldn't do the same.

    However, random house spiders aren't going to do you any good. You're going to need to eat a monstrous spider- a Tiny sized Brazillian Leaping Spider or Sydney Funnelweb at the least.

    Do you know how surprise works? It's not like some bonus on initiative, they get a whole round of actions on us.

    The Camel has been woken up by the noise from within the shelter. It turns to face you... (Hide Natural 20+11)
    Oh. Nevermind. You sneak up on it, and take a swing... and miss.
    You win initiative, and decide to full attack it with your teeth and claws. You deal some damage, but it's still standing, and it's angry. It bites at you, ineffectively.
    Your turn. What do?

    You bite and claw the camel some more. It's bloodied, and braying in pain. It's also drooling ALL OVER THE PLACE.
    It tries to overrun you- at which point you neatly sidestep and brain it with your trusty cricket bat.

    Choose One:
    18 Strength
    50 foot land speed
    +1 natural armor

    Shouldn't be that hard a decision.

    I'm up for Librarian hunting. Except be forewarned she might have magical prowess.

    Although her bookish frame cloaked over the killing machine which we are becoming...

    You chow down on the 500 kilogram camel. You're feeling almost.... sated. That's a weird feeling, and you don't feel it very often.
    As you do so, your muscles enlarge. You now have the muscles of a camel. CAMEL MUSCLES. Either way, you now have 18 strength.
    Your bite or cricket bat now deals 1d6+4 damage. Your claws deal 1d4+2.

    I'm going to bed now. Would you like to slink off to find a hiding place now, or resume your killing spree right where you left off?
