>Previous threads can be found at: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Psion%20Quest>Einstein chirped, waking you up. You knew you could check his data at any time: http://pastebin.com/CaAF0yS8You woke up, warm as you've ever been, snuggling with something leathery, covered in pillows. You opened your eyes to find that you were hugging Pheles tightly, blankets swathed around the two of you. Her eyes were closed, and her abdomen- which you were lying on- had a lot more give than Sarvesh's shell did. Her mandibles started twitching, and she reached out to grab you, pulling you closer to her.You were in Pheles' room- which was the inside of one of those great clay domes. You could see her bed, which you were lying on, and then a large computer in the corner, centaur-designed trid goggles, and piles of books under the desk. On the other side of the room was a pile of various makeup supplies, in industrial stock- because she used a lot, apparently. Omnissiah and Einstein sat snuggled in pillows as well, just in case.
>>24440712"this is, nice."reluctantly try to extract our selves or if it is within reach, grab a drink.
>>24440712"Mmmmhmm."Motion for Einstein to pour us an anti-rad drink
Rolled 62>>24440712yawn, wait till pheles wakes up.<Omni, whats the status on the ship? and since I'm semi-imobile right now I could probably set you up those accounts for cash like you wanted>(set up an account with a half million credits in it)
>>24440712Send a message back to Manus<I could try to teach Sigma basic telepathy, to see if it works. If she wants to try, that is.>
>>24440784Mono, I will travel through your computer and rape you in the mouth.Turn off your dice.
<Omni, what's the status on the ship?> you ask.<It's completely repaired. Nerull was kind enough to lend us replacement supplies for the drones.>You hug Pheles tighter for a moment. "Mmmmm."Her eyes flickered open. "Morning~" She said, poking you."This is nice." You say. "It is! you're so soft and squishy, like a pillow." Pheles said.You ask Einstein to give you another drink - this one orange flavored, and you take a drink."So, the plans for today, are..."Someone banged on the door."Yo." Theta said. His eyes were centaur, and his eyesockets were very slightly different. "You ready, Heather? Just the eyes and the pressure, or do you want something else?"
Rolled 16>>24440894"don't forget the hair, and can I get the eyes in an unnatural colour?">>24440888try me
>>24440894>"You ready, Heather? Just the eyes and the pressure, or do you want something else?"nope that should be it, thanks theta
>>24440894"please change my hair back to it's original color"
>>24440925>"don't forget the hair, and can I get the eyes in an unnatural colour?"Why? We're already getting alien eyes.
>>24440894"Eyes and pressure and hair back to normal, please."
Rolled 31>>24440950they aren't alien on this planet though
>>24440938It just means his rolls won't be counted when it actually comes time to roll.
>>244409761, it wasn't being said outloud. 2, it's still centaur eyes.3, STOP ROLLING
>>24440938Hello behatted one.
>>24440976>... If you're not going to turn off your dice when it's not in use, then I won't count your dice ever. I will develop a blind spot specifically toward your dice. This is a special provision specifically for you, monotreeme."Don't forget the hair.""Right." He said, and focused. You suddenly found yourself breathing lighter, shallower- and you still felt like you were perfectly fine. You had a feeling like you'd get dizzy if you were to take a deep breath. Then your hair turned red again, and then it turned... that strange, alien color again. One you didn't quite have the words to explain."How's that?" He asked, as you looked up to him. He had that IR behind his skin, almost making him look bioluminescent."Ooh, can you do the human thing?" Pheles asked."Yeah, sure-""No wait, let's do that after we meet Tala." She said."Alright." He said. "C'mon. Sarvesh is making something for breakfast."With your new eyes, Pheles was... beautiful. Her carapace was shining white, like marble, iridescent blue. With the darker blue makeup on her shell to tie it all together, you were... stunned.
>>24441034"Wow Pheles, I can see why you have all the Centaur guys after you now."
>>24441034>sure thing man, it's your quest. though most of the time it really IS cause I leave the damn things on; just not today, they broke out the picture."hey cool I can see all of the colors now; you're prettier than you were before pheles"
>>24441034"Wow, Pheles. You look really pretty with Centaur eyes."
>>24441034I want to run my hands all over your carapace, Pheles. Come here so I might molest you!
>>24441034"you look AMAZING pheles, these eye really bring out the color of your shell!"
>>24441077>IS Because I [forget and] leave the damn things on.
"Wow, Pheles." You say. "I can see why you have all the centaur guys after you now. You look really pretty with centaur eyes.""Hooray!" She said, and hopped on her feet."You look amazing! come here, so I might molest you!""Psh, you can't molest me." She said. "You have no bits that are wiggly enough. Also, Sarvesh would totally duel you. He dueled Anna, after all."You carefully touch Pheles, stunned by the IR reflecting off of your own skin, and watching the strange way Pheles's carapace reacted to the shadows."Anyways!" Pheles said, as you pat her abdomen. "Let's go get breakfast."In the dining room, the largest hall, Sarvesh had lain out more food. You take some waffles, and start to eat, theta sitting down next to you."Hello!" Sarvesh said. He had those strange stripes again. "How'd you sleep?"
>>24441195You're sister is like an electric mattress. It was amazing!
>>24441195reasonably well, the gravity is still getting to me, but it's getting easier to deal with.
>>24441195"comfortable, your sister is just a little bit warmer than you."
>>24441195Oh wow that wasn't creepy at all, how old is pheles?
>>24441195>You have no bits that are wiggle enough.Centaur equivalent of saying someone has a small dick?
>>24441266Old enough for Heather to perv over.
tentacle arms, we need tentacle arms.
>>24441266Old enough that males duel for her.
>>24441292Luckily, Theta could give Heather the wiggliest bits that Centaurkind has ever seen.He probably shouldn't though.
>>24441292I think so.
>>24441292>Fuck you man, my bits are so wiggle I can scratch the top of my abdomen with them!Aliens are weird.
>>24441266>Three moults old. Sarvesh was three until the day before yesterday.>Yay, non-time-based maturation!"Your sister is like an electric mattress. It was amazing!" You say. "Your sister's a little bit warmer and softer than you.""Aww." Sarvesh said. "Sadly, my carapace is too thick to be comfortable."Theta sat and started to eat, while Omnissiah and Einstein both followed. Nerull was already sitting there, sticks in his hand, eating quietly."Oh, by the way." Nerull said suddenly. "I received a message- and dad should be returning today, sometime. Mother won't be home until tuesday, though.""That's good." Sarvesh said.
>>24441361"So, Nerull, I understand I have you to thank for my ships hull?"
>>24441354>Fuck you man, my bits are so wiggle I can scratch the top of my abdomen with them!>and that's how I became covered in Centaur bitches
>>24441361You want to avoid your mother?Does your carapace get thicker with each moult?How many moults have you, Nerull?Ask Pheles <Is wiggliness really necessary? Sarvesh had mentioned some things...>How does Nerull look with centaur eyes?Make sure to drink all our drinks.
>>24441404I thought Sarvesh called in a favor and got his brother to make the polycarbon frame?
>>24441390This makes me think. The Centaur equivalent of harem anime must be badass.It's not about some awkward young man having a series of embarrassing romantic situations, it's about an awkward young man engaging in a non-stop battle to fend off the suitors for a half dozen females until he is a scarred war god amongst Centaur-kind.
>>24441434Holy fuck DO WANT!
<Is wiggliness really necessary? Sarvesh had mentioned some things...><I-uh. Well. There's no real way to molest a female centaur, except for our genitals, and, um, you need something a foot and a half long and prehensile to get... all the way in there.> She said."So, Nerull, how many moults have you?""Seven." He said. "I'm... rather old for a centaur, to be honest. I'm two moults older than dad, which is rather strange, socially."You give him a look- he didn't look very different in UV, but in IR, the divots and scratches looked a little bluer than the rest of him. His shell was much too thick to have any strange patterns, and it wasn't as drastic a change like Pheles and Sarvesh's were."I understand I have you to thank for my ship's hull?""Well, I did get Sarvesh in contact with the people who deliver my hull parts to me, yes." He said. "But you should thank him- he's the one that paid for it."Strange. Sarvesh told you that he'd gotten them for free."So, let's go, shall we? Better hurry up and eat and stop talking." Sarvesh said, rapidly. "I'd be offended if we ate the food I made to slowly and then let's go ha ha ha."
>>24441471<You told me it was free!>
>>24441434Or you could be Sarvesh and have a carapace full of spaghetti.
>>24441471<Sarvy, ya big softy.>
>>24441471Idly measure our arm."Sarveeeeesh...."
>>24441471<Sarvesh, I can eat and talk at the same time. why did you tell me that you got it for free?>
>>24441471All that lobster spaghetti.
>>24441471>a foot and a half long and prehensileMaaaaan. We should have done Sarvesh before going steady with Anna.
>>24441511>Idly measure our arm.why bother we have tactile tk
>>24441546I FUCKING TOLD Y'ALL NIGGASBUT YOU WERE ALL "NO NO, LET'S FUCK THE MALNOURISHED FIVE-FOOT-NOTHING GIRL WITH NO TITS OR ASS, IT'LL BE AWESOME"
>>24441546No worries, we just have to convince Anna to agree to let Theta turn her into a male centaur one time.
"Sarvesssshhh...." You say. "This is pretty good." Sarvesh said, taking a bite.<Sarvesh, I can eat and talk at the same time.> You say. <Why did you tell me that you got it for free?><Well. Um.> He said. <I had ten million credits just... y'know, sitting around. I didn't really have a need for all of it.><Sarvy, ya big softie.><My shell's pretty hard, actually.> He said, and went back to eating. His stripes grew brighter as his cheekflaps went blue- he was blushing, brightly.
>>24441572.... give Pheles an evil grin, "Did I ever tell you that I refined my TK, they act like hands, I can feel with them">>24441590it is awesome
>>24441604"You're right. This is pretty good."
>>24441604Punch him on the arm.Alright then, let's go.
>>24441604<well, now I'll need to pay you back for it; and don't even try and refuse I WILL FIND A WAY>[enter oblivious voice]"looking a little blue in the face there sarvesh, are you asphyxiating? or is it something to do with these new eyes of mine..."
>>24441607Not at the table, also that's cheating.
>>24441604<Well, I guess another thanks is in order then, though I'm not too happy about you spending all that money on me without even telling.>
>>24441664>Not at the table, also that's cheating.>using a part of our body>cheatingno it isn't
>>24441699Just because your mind-tentacles have tactile sensation doesn't make them a bodypart.
>>24441604Oh no I dont like where this is going."Soooo! Sarvesh. What are we doing today and what are we going to see?"
>>24441729it would be cheating if we used the tk to dildo her, but tk is an extension of our mind
<Well, now I'll need to pay you back for it; and don't even try and refuse. I will find a way!><... If you make Rho.. er, robin hate me less, that would be enough.> He said, meekly. <To pay me back.>"Looking a little blue in the face there, Sarvesh. Are you asphyxiating? Or is it something to do with these new eyes of mine...""Aw, he's blushing!" Pheles said, and giggled. Then she turned to Nerull. "Did you hear? Tala had a baby.""... Did she?""Yep! you wanna meet her?""I... um." "Yes. Yes you do." Pheles said, standing. This was the first time you'd heard her angry. Sarvesh took a slight step away. Theta met your eyes and shrugged- he didn't quite know what was going on, but there was something... scary about Pheles's sudden anger."Yes. Yes I do." Nerull responded."So that's that!" Pheles said, going back giggly. "After breakfast, we can go. She'll be happy to meet you. And the baby will too!"
>>24441793I'd love to come with you!>Bet you the baby is actually Pheles'.
>>24441793Shrug back at Theta. <Manus thinks there might be a way for people to learn more psionic powers, by the way. Interested in telepathy?>
>>24441793<did I miss something just now sarvesh?>
>>24441838Theta would need to have technopathy for that to work.
>>24441793>"Yes. Yes you do." Pheles said, standing. This was the first time you'd heard her angry. Sarvesh took a slight step away. Theta met your eyes and shrugged- he didn't quite know what was going on, but there was something... scary about Pheles's sudden anger.<I assume she gets that from her mother>>>24441793><... If you make Rho.. er, robin hate me less, that would be enough.><she doesn't hate you, she's jealous that you can teleport things without touching them while also having other powers on top of that>
>>24441879> We... *believe* that we can allow a psion to learn new disciplines rather easily, as long as they have a 'teacher' with technopathy as wellonly the teacher needs technopathy
>>24441826<Theta, can you check genetics with your power?>
<Did I miss something just now, Sarvesh?> You ask.<The baby is Nerull's son.> He said. "I'd love to come with you!" You call. "Alright!" Pheles called, and got to her feet. All of you finished up your food, and then you made your way outside- and the sky was shimmering blue, almost greenish near the horizon. Two whole dimensions of color covered the sky, and everything was brilliant, sparkling..."I'm going to need to keep these things." Theta said, next to you, gasping."Hm? What is it?" Pheles asked.
>>24441943"The UV eyes. They're pretty cool."
>>24441943How do you not just stand around stunned forever by what you see?
>>24441943<...oh...well, I think I understand...>
>>24441943"Human culture has thousands of poems about the beauty of the sky. It looks boring in comparison now that I'm seeing it with Centaur eyes."
>>24441943"Any chance you could add IR as well?"
>>24441943"Then why doesn't he want to see it?"
<Then why doesn't he want to see it?><It's Tala. Tala's in love with him. He... refuses to see it. Always has. It makes him uncomfortable.>"How do you not just stand around, stunned forever by what you see?""What do you mean?""Human culture has hundreds of thousands of poems about the beauty of the sky. It looks boring in comparison now that I'm seeing it with centaur eyes.""... Don't stare into the sun too much." Sarvesh. "You'll lose your IR sight."Pheles giggled. "Sarvesh can't even see when pretty two-moults are blushing at him. Poor guy."The six of you continued on, toward the city. You started getting stares from other centaurs on the streets, but other than that, nothing major happened. You were still stunned by the way the sky looked, when suddenly, a small, bright red centaur came tearing out of one of the domes, almost tackling Nerull in a hug."Nerull! You're here! Hello!" She said, blushing brightly- her entire head might as well have been purple. She laid her pincers on his shoulders for the longest time, and Nerull didn't move. Then she noticed Pheles and hugged her too. "Hey, everyone! And new people! You'd be... Heather, right?" She asked, meeting your eyes. "And... um... hm. ... I wanna say Damien." She said, turning to Theta."No, I'm just here to tag along with Heather." Theta said. "My name's Theta.""And mine is Tala! Pleased to meet you. Come on in!"
>>24442097"Thanks, Tala! Please to meet you!"
>>24442097"Why didn't your IR sight get healed with moulting? Or when Theta fixed you up just before?""It's great to meet you, Tala!""I suppose Pheles has been telling tales about me, has she?""I've been told you have something adorable to show us!"
>>24442184>"Why didn't your IR sight get healed with moulting?why would it? it's not like the eyes get replaced
>>24442097<theta could you please fix Sarveshs eyes?>
>>24442212>>24442253>>24442184Guys, I don't think Pheles was being literal.I think she just mean he's got too much spaghetti in his pockets to notice when young women hit on him.
"Thanks, Tala! Pleased to meet you!" You say, and hug her too. "I suppose Pheles has been telling tales about me, has she?""She has, a few. Apparently you're some kind of genius in video games.""I've been told you have something adorable to show us!""Of course!" She said, and lead all of you inside. A pure, shimmering white object was in there, the same shade as pheles... It was a small bundle of carapace, tear-drop shaped with a point at the bottom, and teensy pincers came out of the top, complete with a miniature centaur head. It opened it's floppy mandibles... and squeaaked. The sound reminded you of a penguin's warking."Oh my god can I hug her?!" Pheles asked."Go ahead!" Tala said. "The little bugger's resiliant as long as I keep feeding him."Pheles hugged the little squeaking centaur, and it turned to you- and wiggled it's arms out, trying to hug you, and squeaaaaked again.And then a picture frame, pushed by telekinetic force, fell off of a nearby shelf."Oh, sorry! That happens." Tala said, and put the picture back up- it was of a centaur you didn't recognize.
>Come back to /tg/>Exabyte finish sorcerer quest
>>24442324To Sarvesh, <Did you feel that?>
>>24442324"...That happens? How often?"
it apparently runs in the family. tickle her with TK
>>24442355Haven't been here in ages.
>>24442324DAWWW YOUR SO ADORABLE.Play with it's mandibles.
>>24442374YEESSSS THE GREAT PSIONCRACY WILL SOON RISE! ALL WILL BOW BEFORE THE TEN(?) GREAT FAMILIES!
>>24442324<Max, we found a centaur baby who keeps using TK. What do?>
"That happens?" You ask. "How often?""Whenever the bugger wants something." She said, and grabbed a spoon and some strange cream. She mushed the cream up in her mandibles, and spit it out into a spoon, holding it out The baby started scraping the cream off of the spoon with its own mandibles, eating contentedly.<Did you feel that?> You ask Sarvesh. Slowly, Sarvesh nodded.Then the baby reached out to you again, and squeeaaaaaked again. It wanted to hug you! Let me hug you!"D'awww, you're so adorable!" You say, and hug the baby. It's pincers nipped at your ears and nose, eyes staring straight into yours. You tickle it's mandibles, and the lower end of the coccoon wiggled as it kicked its legs, wiggling and chortling. You distinctly heard a human baby's giggle in the back of your mind.And then it rammed it's cheek into you, hugging you. It's eyes closed, and then it was asleep."Dawww." Sarvesh said. "What's his name?""I haven't named the bugger yet." Tala said. "I was hoping to get Nerull's feedback.""I. I. Um." He said.
>>24442324"Heh. He's got a bright future ahead of him."
>>24442473At some point we need to go to pick something up, and leave the baby hanging there in midair.
>>24442473<Should we tell her, Sarvesh?>
>>24442473Do you name them before you figure out their gender?This is the cutest thing ever!I want to take it back with me.
>>24442473"So the baby pushing things with his mind doesn't surprise you at all?"
>>24442473>her>himWhat the hell is it?
>>24442573It was covered earlier. Centaurs don't have a distinguishable gender until their first moult. Different people are referring to the baby as different genders because they're guessing.
>>24442573no one knows... also is it really important?
>>24442593Would you want a boy-centaur called Jilly?
>>24442624Centaur names probably aren't associated with a particular gender.
"Do you name them before you figure out their gender?""Yes, we do." Tala said. "We don't know what his or her gender is until the bugger's first moult."<... Should we tell her, Sarvesh?><... We should ask Max.> Sarvesh said."This is the cutest thing ever!" You say, and hug it. It giggled, asleep, the lower end wriggling more. "I want to take it back with me.""Too bad, the bugger's mine." Tala said, and stuck her two tongues out at you, between her mandibles. "Nyaah.""Heh. He's got a bright future ahead of him.""... Kha'tuk." Nerull suddenly said, looking down at the sleeping baby. "His name is Kha'tuk.""His?" Sarvesh asked. "You're certain it's a boy?""... It's just a feeling." Nerull said. "Can I hold him?"You hand him the baby- and it apparently pincered a large chunk of your hair until you were able to finesse it out, and Nerull held the baby close.<It is a boy.> Theta said. <If you're curious. Should I tell them?>
>>24442689try to figure if Nerull is psionic. He might have a touch of precog \ clairvoyance.
>>24442689<Better ask Sarvesh, he'd know whether it'd be a good idea or a total faux-pas.>
>>24442689<Your call theta...I'm keeping his psionics to myself for now though>
>>24442689<If you want.>I think we should tell her that her baby is psionic, get her in contact with the institute, and make one of the void shield things so he'll be protected from the void queen."Tala, I think Kha'tuk is psionic. It certainly seems that way, anyway."
>>24442689<...Maybe we'll tell Max when we get back. Or in a few years, even.>
>>24442689<Max, we found an adorable little psionic centaur baby. What's the procedure for that?>And >>24442734 to Theta.
>>24442689<Nah, I think they enjoy not knowing.><Hey Max, we found another one. A natural this time. Sarvesh's newborn cousin. I trust you know how to do everything all nice a politely?>
>>24442689Send a message to Max while we are at it.
With the void queen out and about, it's too dangerous to keep the fact that he's psionic to ourself.
>>24442766No telling her until we've cleared it with Max.
>>24442689"When to they first moult? I'd keep them like that as cute as can be for as long as I could."
>>24442734This. We do not know the proper way to put this.
>>24442689Hey, was that Theta initiating Telepathy? I thought the Clones couldn't do that?
>>24442866>... Um. er. ...He wasn't initiating telepathy, he was THINKING REALLY HARD AT YOU. And you picked it up, akin to the same way Jilly picks things up from normal people.<Better ask Sarvesh. He'd know whether it'd be a good idea or a total faux-pas.>You turn to Einstein, and send Max a message.<Hey, Max, we found an adorable little psionic centaur baby.> You say. <Sarvesh's nephew. What's the procedure for that?>There was a pause.<... Don't tell anybody.> Max said. <I'll come down to that world in a few hours, and I'll tell the mother everything and bring her an anti-void device. But we're *not* bringing the child to the institute. It deserves to stay with its family.><He said to keep it silent.> Theta said. <So I will.>He stretched."He's adorable." Nerull said. "I um.""You know what?" Pheles asked. "How about me, Sarvesh, and these two humans go on ahead?" She giggled up at Nerul and the white baby centaur. "Okay? You don't mind, do you?""... No, no, that's fine."
>>24442917<I thought you wanted to show off thetas little trick pheles>
>>24442917<Got it. I'll let Sarvesh know.>CC Sarvesh into Max' messages."Hey Pheles, you need to show me that thing you mentioned last time!""Will you change colours as much as Sarvesh did when you moult?"then when we're outside"OH MY GOD I WANT 4 OF THEM."
>>24442917"Tactful exit!"Or at least it was.
>>24442917Tactical roll out of the room with TK.
>>24442917"Well then, we'll be going, to do... human... stuff. Yeah."
"Well, then... we'll be going to do... human... stuff. Yeah."And then the four of you make your exit.<Got it. I'll let Sarvesh know.> you say, and send the messages to Sarvesh."Oh my god I want four of them!" You cry, once outside."I know, right?!" Pheles said. "She was so tiny and cute and... and wriggly! SHE WAS ADORABLE.""I thought you wanted to show off Theta's little trick, Pheles.""Well, I wanted to do that *now*." She said. "Because I didn't want to freak Tala out.""So, back home, then you can turn human?" Sarvesh asked."And I'm going to do something to you, too." Theta said. "But I'm not sure what."
well if we are species shuffling, Nagala? Or is that too much right now
>>24443106You could make him all spiky everywhere? Or maybe give him extra arm sockets, so we can build more robolimbs!
>>24443106"Your father won't object to this will he, Sarvesh?"
>>24443106>to sarvesh?oh? are you planning to do what I think you were?>to us?not without telling me first, I'd not like to have to buy a new wardrobe to fit...
>>24443106"Keep the eyes? Maybe add some retractable layer that blocks IR radiation so we can see normally as well? Or maybe I could make something like that... shades, even. Though they might get lost... integrated?"
"You could make him all spiky everywhere? Or maybe give him extra arm sockets, so we can build more robo-limbs!""Yes!" Theta said, as the four of you made your way inside. "I could give him extra arms!""Your father won't object to this, will he, Sarvesh?""He'd think it's interesting." Sarvesh said. "Hehehehe." Theta said."...That's foreboding." Sarvesh said.Theta raised his hands... and then he changed everybody in the room.Yes, even you, you knew, as your body started twisting.Theta cackled.>End of thread!
