    He's dead, Jim!

    We finally did it! We killed Kingston! Way to go, guys! Yeah!

    And...8 years of 4Chan, or something. Bonus!

    Ahem. Sorry. Back into character.

    Things have been quiet the past three days, since we sent Raynor on his mission, minus the obvious. In fact, it may have been the least violent few days the Koprulu Sector has seen in years. We feel like it's only a matter of time before something cracks this peaceful moment wide open.

    In fact, Internbrate agrees. It feels like there's something already on its way, but has no idea what.

    (Well, then. Action begins)

    Continuing to lay about, we notice something twinkling in the sun over Lutrious. It takes us a moment to focus enough to realize it is a Terran escape pod drifting through the system toward our planet...
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/05/11(Wed)21:56 No.16534136
    The pod enters the upper atmosphere, and its onboard systems automatically set it on a survivable trajectory. It is surrounded by flames as its kinetic energy is absorbed into the planet's. It looks like it will land next to a spawning pool full of lounging zerglings.

    Hard to tell while it's screaming toward the surface, but it appears to have two or three life forms aboard. It's only designed for one, but we're pretty sure there are reasonable explanations for a cramped escape pod.

    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/05/11(Wed)22:20 No.16534347
    It is a spectacular crash-landing. There are some things that just don't get old, and a fireball from space exploding on the surface of a world without killing you is one of them.

    Our zerglings gather around the pod once it's cooled down enough. There's movement inside, and finally the pod's seals release and the hatch springs open. Inside are two Terrans with looks of determination on their faces, and one with several wriggling parasites crawling on her face.

    Without hesitation, we launch our zerglings forward in a flurry of chitin and claws. The Terrans kill four of them before they die, and we begin destroying the bodies of the fallen before they can come back.

    The Dyles Entity sent this pod. But why would it only send three Terrans?

    Some bits are decent, but 90% is terrible and they are even more obsessed with sex than /tg/. There was literally a rapequest. Two actually, but the second was a (somewhat funny) joke. The first was literally about following a female furry straight out of happy-tree-friends while watching her get raped/nearly raped.

    Okay... getting back on topic, so we now have to root out Dyles... but I don't want to do a full scale invasion of UED space (insert poutty little girl). Increase nukeworld's production, increase carrier production, increase production of non-zerg assets, make sealed power armour suits for most everything else. We need to make our forces relatively immune to the parasites and be able to cleanse planets en mass.

    To be fair, there have been parts of this quest that...well...

    Labbrate finds that a little extreme. Firebats should be able to sterilize the site, with the added benefit that we have firebats at Lutrious, whereas a nuclear device would either need to be assembled or brought on the weeks-long journey from Zerg World.

    We concur, and the sterilization begins.

    Seconding. Sterilize the area. Shuffle the thoroughly irradiated escape pod to a safe, quarantined area that can also be readily sterilized. Have the Zerg Science Corp. examine the pod for anything out of the ordinary.

    Have our sciencebrates or Cyberbrate plot out how the pod entered the atmosphere and try to predict where it could have came from in space.
    >> Anonymous 10/05/11(Wed)22:32 No.16534473
    Can we trace back the escape pod's origin by analyzing it's trajectory from when we first detected it?
    Also, our listening post needs to be expanded, and a system-wide sensor net put in place to prevent any more such surprises.

    And also make sure to sterilize that area where the escape pod landed. It's probably crawling with neural parasites.

    Scramble what available defenses we have on Lutrious. Hail the ships, and try to get some profiles on what types of ship they have in their fleet.

    Have a small force of Zerg on Lutrious hang back from defending and make themselves inconspicuous (i.e. forming small hive clusters in underground cave networks or just hiding). If this maybe-Dyles wants to occupy Lutrious, we could potentially strike back at his forces later on. If not, we can recoup our losses there when maybe-Dyles moves on.

    (I was cleverly having you roll 2d100 to see how many ships arrived)

    Our forces over Lutrious are small, but the scourge and mutalisks are still quite capable of dealing with such a direct attack. Once we are mobilized, it is only moments before only the largest ship, a cargo carrier, remains. It's slow, but durable. A message comes from the ship before our attacks can do much damage. It's Dyles, his face barely recognizable beneath the nest of tadpole-like parasites growing from mossy protrusions out of his skull:

    "You are a fool to interfere, Cerebrate. The UED will fall, and the Koprulu Sector will be but an afterthought for our luscious Hunger. You are the cherry atop our dessert, Dirtworm. In time, even your little Swarm will be part of our Feast, and you will watch, powerless. We suggest that you scurry and hide like the walker filth you are. We will return."

    The signal cuts off just before we blow the ship into many pieces.

    It would be very helpful to have a force that cannot be infected by the Dyles neural parasite.

    We ship by the Zerg Postal Service, unless the worldship has information on building a warp network.

    So it's really just as simple as fussing a bunch of overlord together around a pile of emitters tuned to dad... I mean it does make sense based on how I understand resurrection and the swarm as a whole functions.

    If Dyles isn't bullshitting us, then he's got a sizeable force ready, probably "commandeered" from the UED. We haven't been able to get a good feel for what exactly the Dyles entity IS (excluding our meta-knowledge from Spooky Zergquest, which only amounts to us knowing his MO).

    But there might be people who did know what the Dyles entity was before it got a hold of Dyles himself.

    Have the Zerg Science Corp. delve into the Xel'naga worldship. Have them search for records on any type of neural parasite or such.

    Also, begin developing a type of Zerg spore that can be launched from queens and defilers (and maybe other appropriate Zerg units... maybe even the mantalisk or other fast flyers) that induces rapid growth of the Psionic-blank gland that we discovered shortly after our Xel'naga Worldship hijacking. While it might not be as drastic as a nuke or acid spray, it may be useful in disabling large amounts of Dyles' forces in a pinch.

    I don't think that resurrecting the Overmind will really do anything. It will piss off the Protoss something fierce for one, making us fight two potentially very large enemy forces at once. Secondly, unless the Overmind can automagically resurrect every Zerg that died in the Battle for Aiur and every Cerebrate that didn't die of Dark Templar void-blade trauma, all he's going to do is re-assert control over us and Kerrigan and tell us to do shit. And maybe wonder why the hell we would resurrect him before we had the whole Korpulu sector waiting for him on a silver platter.
    >> TUCAMP 10/05/11(Wed)23:25 No.16534969
    Wait. Are you saying you we thinking out using an emitter as the basis for working the crystal? I was thinking that the psionic signature IS the being. If that weren't the case then how could cerbrates tell each other apart, and why would the overmind still have to be in contact with a cerebrate to resurrect them? Maybe I just don't the answers to the fluff holes.

    As for Dyles, we send a small(ish) force. It takes weeks to get there afterall, but a force that is large enough to glass a planet and defend itself from a pure terran force ten time its size.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 10/05/11(Wed)23:25 No.16534973
    >that induces rapid growth of the Psionic-blank gland

    That would require extensive mutation, on the order of causing a Terran to mutate into a zergling. It might be possible, but it might be a waste of time. Should we devote our cerebrates to it?

    >Delve into the Worldship's files

    There are files in folders for operations, design, ship's logs, and bio-diversity. The computers are older than the Overmind, and extremely delicate, considering their rough condition. We could try to do a search, but Cyberbrate warns that there's a chance that even a successful one would corrupt a lot of data. Should we risk it?

    No, I think it's a waste of time, and depends on far too many assumptions of how the neural parasites operate.
    If we capture more parasites and are able to prove that the null-psi gland actually works on their hosts, then we can devote resources to it.

    Without a way to directly interact with the data (the Old Ones obviously used a far different computer system than the Terrans or Protoss of today), we can merely access files, which carries with it a risk of corruption or accidental deletion, due to extreme age and damage.

    Attempting a search would essentially involve accessing every file. If successful, it would definitely bring us to the relevant information, but might destroy all or part of the rest. If unsuccessful, it could possibly destroy all or part of the entire database.

It believes that we have clear enough evidence that Dyles and the UED are at war to consider the option of diplomacy with the Terrans.

    Cyberbrate could build more Terminators (I was going to keep denying the name, but let's face it: they're totally Terminators), but they are very expensive and keeping control of them is very difficult without releasing them to their own programming. Cyberbrate reminds us that this programming was specifically designed by VoidGate.

    (You've got your vote. You'll need two more!)

    (/tg/ dice, you've got an agenda)

    Almost all of their memories are here. We look at what these men knew about the UED's recent history.

    It seems that Project Purification, the effort to root out mutants, cyborgs, and other "undesirables" from humanity that resulted in the Terrans of the Koprulu Sector (among other things), ended dramatically. A rogue scientist, realizing that humanity's newfound lack of cybernetic implants limited reaction times and isolated the human element from the machine, created a series of combat drones that began to systematically kill humans involved in political and military decision-making, and interfaced with the machines they used. In two years, he had basically taken control of 2/3rds of the world's weapons and commerce. The UPL fell apart, unable to fight the machines with even the purest examples of humanity. It looked very much like this man would be a Warp Age Caesar, until several cyborgs (often erroneously called "The Last Cyborgs," despite there being entire underground communities at the time) used their combinations of flesh and machine to lock the scientist out of several key systems, corner him, and physically blast his torso into particulate matter.

    If we assume that there is only one Kingston for every 50 billion humans (just a guess at the pre war population of the sector), then the UED should have... a dozen or more.

    We have to work under the assumption that they won't be amenable to any sort of long-term alliance with what they would perceive as a bunch of murdering infesting insects. Hell, I don't even think that the Morians would have even considered talking to us if they weren't at our mercy.

    As for the Protoss & Dyles... perhaps we could arrange a meeting with Khas or Tassadar (or whichever senior leadership protoss will see us) to show them the Dyles entity firsthand. Perhaps we could capture a specimen and show it to them to demonstrate that we weren't bullshitting them about the whole thing.

    Ideally, we should embroil the Protoss into a conflict with either the UED or the Dyles entity, but so far it seems that Protoss space is fairly far away from where we expect the conflict with Dyles to take place.

    With the only heroes in the world overcoming an evil dictator with the power of cybernetics, a new age of integration dawned. A lot of the fervor has died down over time, but it's a public "secret" that the military still uses extensive cybernetic modification on even standard troops. The scientists we infested had heard rumors that some covert parts of the government even bred people in secret for intense implantation from birth.

    The UED had never encountered alien life before Dyles attacked. It had found and covered up the Xel'Naga fragment, but that was older than humanity and obviously damaged beyond repair. This invasion has been their first contact.


    >Protoss on Dyles

    The Protoss did become much more willing to work with us toward peace when they learned of Dyles and the UED...

    Well, 1 to 2 dozen BEFORE Dyles attacked. I now have a new crazy plan for dealing with Dyles controlled worlds, a psionic null net. Put it around a planet and wait for the parasites to die off. Don't know who it'd work, but reprogramming the terminators would be a good idea.

    Sounds like a weird combination of Ghost in The Shell SAC and Terminator, with some Dues Ex thrown in for good measure.

    Seeing as they're all newbies to the whole alien race relations thing, they probably tried to deal with Dyles using an unrefined version of the "Humanity fuck yeah" approach. This probably didn't turn out so good.

    OR we could rewrite the programing so it isn't going to kill us or our pet terrans, EVER, then start churning out terminators to deal with Dyles. Or, you know nukes, carriers, and numbers.

    Get that thing up and running
    Sell it to UED in return for NO BACKSTAB K?
    Invite some Protoss to Lutrious. If there's still some Dyles hanging around, let them glass the infected areas. They like doing that.

    Death incarnate in small cramped spaces with plenty of long hallways to spare. But in the open, though they were fierce combatants, we mowed them down with a few well-placed ultralisks as fast as we would any Terran fortification. We were also able to match them in space-to-space combat, or stall them long enough for us to land ground forces at vital locations. We gradually wore VoidGate down and through cunning and ingenuity and some luck, we triumphed.

    We could probably rig up a ZergNet now if we put our minds to it. Accountantbrate might have an aneurysm when we ask him to estimate the cost of it, but it could be a good way to supplement our ground forces.

    I wonder which.

    Let's not get VoidGate back online. We already have Cyberbrate and a vast amount of resources. Let us instead see how we can create a ZergNet that we can use to control and mass-produce terminators/cyberwhatevers that we can direct.

    Inviting the Protoss to Lutrious might be a good idea. If Dyles attacks again, they can see with their own eyes that we aren't feeding them a bunch of lies.

    (Is that a vote for LutriToss?)

    Cyberbrate reminds us that it requires large communications equipment to maintain a direct link to its Terminators. Unless that equipment is present on the battlefield, any Terminators will need to be automated.
    >> TUCAMP 10/06/11(Thu)01:26 No.16536144
    Implying the protoss would come. One of the Jellies might, who could then relay what they see back. Though that does raise the question of whether or not the parasites can affect archons, I'd assume not but...
    >> Anonymous 10/06/11(Thu)01:29 No.16536164

    It is a vote for LutriToss.

    We can be accommodating on any measure they will place to ensure that we don't just infest the shit out of any protoss they send and say "oh he died. How sad. No, we can't send the bodies back to you. Also, did I tell you about this new awesome not-protoss hybrid we have now?"
    >> Anonymous 10/06/11(Thu)01:31 No.16536175
    No, scrap those stupid options.
    Have Cyberbrate go through the Terminator's neural net CPU architecture and programming to make sure that there are no VoidGate backdoors or hidden protocols (like rebuild VoidGate). Then once done, repair a factory and begin production.
    >> Anonymous 10/06/11(Thu)01:44 No.16536279


    Also see if there's any VoidGate construction shenanigans that we can apply to building our own Terran stuff faster or better.

    (It's always right after the big events that we get all lazy! It's alright. We got some backstory and a challenge from a rival power in here, as well as got the ball rolling on some ideas. Next week, though, you should get together and do something. I'll most likely be drinking, so a splendid time is sure to be had by all)


    (For >>16535971, pic was my very broad inspiration. I'm willing to admit that I like it way too much)

    Cyberbrate is astounded by the independent operation protocols. There are contingencies in there for hundreds of bizarre situations, as well as thousands for more mundane ones. There are substantial files on dealing with being trapped in Earth's past, including detailed files on assassinating major figures. Cyberbrate isn't even sure where to start cutting to keep VoidGate's possible back doors shut. It assures us this is possible, but warns that it will take a while.

    (You'll have to vote on that again next time!)
