You are the child of happy young couple. Your father works for Baron Frei, an important noble in who runs much of the industry in the small barony of Freiholt. Your mother likes to think of herself as a"career woman" but in truth she's a glorified butcher. She uses a rifle or a club to kill test subjects after they've outlived their usefullness and oversees the disection of the (presumably failed) experiment in the name of science.You parents don't have much time for you. You've spent much of your life in a glomy penthouse apartment with stuffed animals (hunting trophies and or scientific specimens) and jars full of preserved organs as well as hideous animals.You don't spend muchg time with other children and when you do they're eitrher noble born or the children of other researchers. You've got toys, books, and private tutors to keep you company but the tight leash of your parents and your keepers has made it difficult for you to spend much time with your peer group.Okay time to decide somethings.A: Gender.B: NameC: our reaction to being kept cooped up all the time.>1: we've become very withdrawn, even our parents find it hard to socialize with us>2: we're ectroverts, what little time we get to spend with our peers is optimized>3: take a third option (write in)3 votes lock us in.

Your isolation from your peer group has stunted your ability to empathize with other human beings. It has however increased your ability to empathize with animals. You like rats and dogs just fine, but cats are the top animal as far as you're concerned.Mostly it has to do with Spok, you're patron cat.Your parents noticed your increasing inability to empathize with both them and your caretakers so they decided to to choose the most sensible course of action available to them,They went down to slave market and bought a Sapient Cat, then they had its intelligence increased and had it trained to be your tutor.Spok has a fondness for fish and keeps a pair of rats as his pets, he also tends to read a lot.He's been your valued mentor for many years.What has Spok and your slew of tutors taught you?>Major, this is your mad science major. It's your specialty. Its what you live to do.>Minor, this is your mad science minor, its a secondary study that might come in handy but is probably useless>Extracurricular, this is a skill or hobby of some sort that you perform in your free time, it might be mental or physical but it does have real world applications.As per usual, 3 votes locks us in.
>>24901089>Mostly it has to do with Spok, you're patron cat.Welp, this just went from a 6/10 quest to a 3/10.

>am attempting to combine suggestions in some semblance of consensusOver the years you spent a great deal of your time researching mechanical prosthesis and biological alternatives to these prosthesis. As a result you're capable of creating automatons made from flesh and metal.Your refusual to disect cats, dogs, and rats has been a hinderance in your study but you've managed to scrape by disecting giant insects and arachnids.Because seriously, fuck arachnids and insects.>Major: Applied BionicsIn your studies in bionics you found yourself persuing organic chemicals and their effects on the human body. You're quite good at poisoning as well as making a cokctail to get rid of one of those nasty post cram migraines.>Minor: Applied BiochemistryAs an extra curricular you spent much of your spare time sketching, its not quite as good as having a camera on hand butthe ability to make a photorealistic drawing of whatever you're looking at comes in handy.You're also working on names for your inevitable hostile takeover of the world.You'll call your ship "Scion of the Shattered Rainbow"

You're sixteen years old, you're in the market with Spok (who has taken to riding around in a electric walker of your own design.) At the moment you're searching for chemicals and cheap prosthetic organs that you can use to build your next bionic servant, the last one was crude, only capable of carrying out simplistic commands and very weak. It was destroyed by a burglar.The Burglar was caught by the city guard shortly afterwards and you were allowed to decide his punishment.>A: Death, delivered by the guards or your own hand.>B: sentenced to be a test subject, either your own or at one of the more prestigious academies for gifted scientists. (a good way to get your foot in the door)>C: Third choice write inAs you're walking around the market you find yourself at the execution grounds. There's been some rebels who ant to overthrow Baron Frei and restore democratic power to the city fathers of the Barony. They also want to outlaw "The Madness of those who would peel back the curtains on god's mysteries." They've been sabotaging experiments, bombing lectures, and generally targeting the mad science community with all manner of malicious chaos. As such the 20+ pile of heads on the gallows deck is no real surprise you, there were at least 3 times that many there last week.Your father hates them, your mother pities them, how do you feel?>Hate them, bastards should know there place and stay in it.>Pity them, they have some good ideas but their hatred of science blinds them to the truth of the world.>3rd choice write in.

>>24901563>"Screams from the Forgotten Infinity"Where are you getting this really shitty names?
>>24901370Aand hate them
You had the burglar sentenced to the stocks, death by starvation. A classically brutal execution. The guards admired your traditional taste in torments and up until the man finally whithered and died you'd take lunch right in front of him. You made certain that he watched you eat as he slowly starved to death.As for the rebels, you admire their balls. Baron Frei has a tendency to use anyone who opposes him as a test subject, and if he has too many people to run experiments on he sends them to his subordinates. There are too many rebels for that, thus the public execution. The whole thing is kind of entertaining in a darkly comedic way and you look forward to reading the newspaper in the morning to see what new horrors Baron Frei and the Rebels have inflicted on one another.
>>24901600Sorry, rolled for it too early to include your choice in the roll. Will try to include the option next time.>>24901593>where are you getting these really METAL names.FTFYI know they're terrible names, that's why I like them so much. I made up some but hit sup /tg/ and look for the recent duelmasters thread if you want more deliciously bad names.
You have reached eighteen years of Age, Spok succumbed to old age a year ago and was buried in the family plot. (the one with gargoyle automatons who tear trespassers apart.) You're still a little broken up about it but even with all your medical knowledge you just couldn't stop the lung cancer that was killing the poor old cat.Even if Spok were still alive you'd still need to enroll in an Academy, all the things you need to succeed in life are there. People to make connections with, information you can't get anywhere else, and up to date experimental facilities.What kind of academy are you going to?>Something old and traditional, so you can get something vageuly resembling respectability.>Something new and radical, have to stay ahead of the pack if we really want to succeed.>Military School, they have all the best toys.>4th choice write in.

You've never liked authority figures.It boils down to your parents really, they abandoned you at an early age and the closest thing you ever had to a loving parent was a sapient cat who liked to read old military manuals, (He found the human concept of honor hilarious) Smoke pipe tobacco, and eat tuna steak.The Baron's approach to ruling boils down to "this is my land, and everything in it belongs to me" he's harsh, but fair enough if you meet him halfway. But everything has to go through him and that will take far too long for your tastes.You suppose you could throw your lot in with the rebels but they've made it clear that they intend to end the free pursuit of science and put in place some sort of theocratic dictatorship.Fuck that.You decide that you're dissatified with the current power structure of Freiholt.You pack up all your notes, surgical tools, machine smithing tools, a couple sealed jars of your favorite chemical compounds and some sketching supplies.You intend to make your fortune on the high seas.It takes some doing, and you probably won;t ever be welconme in Freiholt after all black market surgeries and illicit automotons you've made but you got together enough capital to buy your own ship and crew it.>You bought a cargo vessel it has some basic armements (tesla coils, harpoon guns, a pair of pintle mounted machine guns...) and a coal boiler engine.>Name your ship>What is your ship crewed by>A: Misfits and outcasts lured in by the promise of easy money>B: Your own creations>C: third option write in,

Decay was reversed by complex chemical solutions and missing organs were supplimented via mechanical prosthesis.Your ship is crewed by stolen corpses and the occasional sailor who doesn't mind being around abominations brought to life by a particularly determined mad scientist.You have a ship, you have a store of coal, and you have a dream pulsing in the back of your mind like an inflamed ulcer.But you lack one thing.Capital and a Short Term Goal.>A: Forget about any major research at the moment, go find a ship to pirate.>B: we have marketable skills, lets make money and do research at the same time>C: Pure research, you have plenty of time tro make money, lets do some experiments.>D: 4th option write in.

You pour your heart and soul into it.Days and nights are spent deep in the holdof The Shadenfruede. You grow increasingly edgy and snappish, the sapient golems, and the few humans among your crew avoid you.But you're getting closer and closer to the secrets of the universe.Making a man get up and walk after he has died is an easy task if the corpse isn't too ripe and if you have the materials on hand.But actively improving on the biology present in an organism, or making mechanical reproductions of living systems?That's hard.Quite frankly you're at the end of your noose.>Slkills increased>Applied Bionics is at Rank 2>Applied Biochemistry is at rank 2>Art is at rank 1>To further increase the research capacity available to F.E.Line you need to get ahold of more research equipment and improve your private laboratory.>Your coal reserves are half empty.>Your food reserves are half empty.>A: Find a port somewhere, do some black market SCIENCE.

The TNAMSS Shadenfreude makes its way to the port of Brownburg, its a port on a island in the middle of the ocean that would be completely inconsequental if only it weren't so useful for pirates, men on the run, and autodidacts much like yourself.You've got some aquantinces here that you could contact in the hope of making a little cash and getting some contacts.>Lorenna, the pirate queen. Femalwe pirate, you patched up some of her men. From what you hear she's been having trouble making raids on ships. Apparently somebody has been getting tips before she can come along and she's been taking pretty heavy losses.>Jules, a pimp, but a classy pimp. He doesn't hurt his ladies and he takes pride on training up the finest women in the sex trade. Somebody sliced up one of his girls. He's really pissed.>Hauser, german dude, kind of a douche.

You go to the favored dive of the assorted scum that dwell in Brownburg.As per usual the Rusty Shithole lives down to its name. Its a shoddily constructed single story brownstone. Its cold in the winter, hot in the summer, it leaks during a storm, and a person can't take a single step without stubbing their toe on a chair leg or stepping in a puddle of filth.Its kind of homey once you get used to it."BLOODY HELL!" An emptied bottle of rum sails over your head and slams into the shoddily nmortared wall. "WHEN I FIND THE SUMBITCH RESPONABER FOR THIS MISABUR TERN OF EVARTS I'LL PULL HIS TONGUE OUT ARSE!" You've seen Lorenna drunk before but this kind of rampage is rare for the woman.She's sixx feet tall, scarred, muscular, tends to wear surpluss military uniforms and likes to use a brace of pistols and a boarding hatchet. Her skin is light brown indicating some form of mixed breeding and her hair is tightly braided and tucked beneath a tricorn hat.In the hopes of getting somewhere productive in speaking with the irate she-pirate you order a small glass of rum, spike it with a concoction of your own design and give it to Lorenna. She accepts without so much as a word of thanks and then downs it in one gulp. Then she spits most of the rum back out ontpo the front of your coat. Its cool, you'd have to be a total dumbass to wear nice clothing in the Rusty Shithole.Captain Lorenna glares at you with sullen fury, but she's sober now."Oh lookit at who it is. wee little Dr. Line. Why have you seen fit to grace us with your presence oh esteemed one?">what is your response?

>>24903778REVEAL THE CHEETAHMEN!
We should focus on bidding our time before we try to mind control her, instead we focus on helping her so that we can gain more resources for our domination/sciences.More resources men higher chances to do greater thing.
>>24903982Let the waifuing begin! I'm out guys, have fun.
"Heard you weren'y doing so well with the whole pirating thing. Thought maybe you could use a hand." You're not much of a people person, but you're good at keeping your face nuetral. You keep your hands where she can see them and phlegmatically wait out Captain Lorenna's glare.Eventually she gives a small huff and jerks her head towards a stool nearthe table. You check for vomit, thorns, broken glass, or splinters but find the stool is safe. "I heard ye were using dead men for a crew Dr. Line." You shrug and give a wish washy gesture. "Well they started out dead. Most of them anyway. They're also bright as a sack of hammers so I need normal supervisors."Lorenna nods, there's still anger in her eyes but its no longer directed at you. "I dinnae know who was responsable for me troubles at first but now ahve got a good idea of the direct cause. Still don't know who the spy is." Lorenna takes out a dagger and begins carving a map into the heavily scarred wood of the table. "There's a fortress on this island, a little shit of a merchant styles himself a prince and lives in a mansion. Thinks he's safe because he's hiding behind 700 soldiers." Lorenna locks eyes with you. "But I know some caverns wherein a brave crew could climb onto the island. With a couple hundred good men I could catch the bastard and get the information I need from him with some hot coals and a good sharp knife."Lorenna pauses, she clearly wants you to say something.What do you say?
>>24903982Besides. We might be able to convince her to go under some genetic/cybernetic experiments later on.
>>24903982Fuck no. This isn't pirate waifu quest, this is maf scientist quest.IMMEDIATE ADDITION TO THE 10 YEAR PLAN: CHEM GELDING!
>>24904011"That should be well under the capabilities of my men. Very well."
>>24904030Actually, if she's a powerful queen it might be in our best interests to marry her at some point. She's not exactly adorable though.
>>24904011"a couple hundred?""I need only fifty."
>>24904063We can make her more pretty my friend. To our own mad tastes of course. Who wants a Catopus pirate queen with nice cybernetic enchantments?
>>24904011Sounds good. We're in.
>>24904063Oh dear fucking god.We're removing our genitals, and the parts of our brain that dictate lust and sexual desires.
>>24904011Agree, but we should talk payment first. Thing is, what do we even want? Just dosh?
>>24904115Her hand in marriage.A purely political marriage.
>>24904101NONSENSE! That's where your creativity lies deep down! We cannot be mad scientists without lust!

>>24904011"I could make truth serum. If you gather all your men, I could use it on them and find the mole."
>>24904115We want the dosh to refill our stores but we also want to make buddies with her so we can share her contacts and get a good scoop on raiding targets.>>24904101It's not like we have any reason to fuck her besides MAYBE an heir, and we'd be captaining separate ships most of the time.>>24904144Too much to ask this early, I think. We're liable to just offend her, which won't do any kind of good.
>>24904177This is /tg/. If we aren't asexual, we'll spend the entire time fucking everything that moves.
>>24904177An heir is good. Makes our descendants able to continue the research in case you didn't discover a way to extend your lifespan.

tripfagging for the sake of making it easier to know who is running the quest[/spoiler["You know I could just synthesize a truth serum and we could go through your men one by one until we find the mole." You say this matter of factly, as if making such things is a common event for you. Seeing as how you spent the last 2 months delving into the secrets of biology and its mechanical equivilents it kind of is.Captain Lorenna looks incredulous. "Pig shit." she states in disbelieving tones."Why do you think I gave you that terrible rum? I needed you sober. That worked just fine didn't it?" You keep your tone as calm, professional, and soothing as possible.Lorenna frowns and rubs her chin. "...can you make anything for hangovers?" You assure Lorenna that you can indeed make a treatment for hangovers that gets rid of all negative symptoms within 15 minutes,Then you get down to the talk of profit and plunder.Lorenna wants the spy(s?) and she wants your help with raiding the merchent prince. (in particular your half dead workers to take the damage when it comes to fighting his soldiers)In return you get a captain's share of the prince's fortune and all the coal and food you can carry away from the island.Her terms are just what you need so you sign on the dotted line.
>>24904521Use our magnifying lens to read the terms before we sign.
It takes the better part of a day to find the culprits, they're captains and officers in Lorenna's (now downsized) pirate fleet. A captain, a first mate mate, a navigator, and a handful of shio's ratings.Lorenna does the cruelest thing she can think of.She hands them over to you and leaves their fate up to you.You have the men sequestered in your brig. You can use them in your inquiries into the nature of human biology later.In the meantime you have a merchant prince to deal with.You have 70 reanimated servants as crew, 10 normal humans (most of who sport a prosthetic limb or organ) and a smart mouthed parrot.You can try and upgrade some of your servants before you leave for The Island of Flowers.Attempting to upgrade your servants may destroy some of them and will use up some of your remaining resources, it will however unlock technologies that can be used later.>Current Servant Model>Normal Human, reanimated corpse, dumb as hell but capable of following simple orders, very hardy.Would you like to try and upgrade the servants?If so how?
>>24904615>>24904663There is no small print. The contract is written on the back of a page torn from the bible with ink made from charcoal soot andcheap alcohol.The terms are, quite simply, find the merchant prince and kill him.You are given a captains share of the loot, along with Lorenna's captains and the woman herself.Any other spoils are open to negotiation.
>>24904718Yes. We are going to alter their stomachs. Make them capable of digesting flesh and converting it to energy to make them move faster.
>>24904765Why limit it to just speed? We could have them gain a temporary boost to strength, speed, and endurance. It might not last as long but might open up more doors for us.
>>24904718Total, unwavering loyalty.Also sword-arms. Retractable sword-arms.
>>24904718Also, we should have our reanimated servants do most of the work while we use our normal humans ferry any corpses back to us for reanimation.
>>24904847>>24904765They can already digest food. You could order them to go full zombie but it wouldn't serve much purpose.well it would be scary I guess. There's that.>>24904849They already have total unwavering loyalty to you, its one ofthe advantages of personally putting together each and every "crew member" after aquiring them from a graveyard.Sword arms would be new, make them a bit dealdier I guess. They're smart enough to hold blades but don't expect actual fighting prowess.Might wanna armor them or something.They're already stronger than a normal human being and take a fuckton of physical trauma to stop so there's that.
>>24904966In that case find sheets of metal and bolt it into them. Make sure said bolts are barbed so they don't get torn out very easily.
>>24904966We don't have a lot of metal do we? If we have the material for it, breastplates would be good I reckon. But there's not a lot that needs doing as far as I know.
>>24904978>>24904966We could combine the two: Have a few of them be armored with sword arms. First generation Shock troops.
>>24904966Give them ability to spit acid and making them look very scary so that they could break people's fighting spirit.
>>24905062>someone namefaggingYou know it's bad when the quest starts circling the drain in its first thread.
>>24905088We already have waifufags and namefags, what could go wrong?
>>24905088At least MrTT isn't here.
>>24905121>inb4 he spawns because you named him
>>24905108>We already have waifufagsI know people were saying it might be advisable to marry the pirate queen, but it looked like mostly power-hungry politics, not waifu-faggotry. Who would want a waifu like that, anyway?
You get your hands on some scrap metal and beat it into shape. From there you bolt it onto your creations and use the occasional spot weld to make sure the metal sticks.>Armored Reanimated Servants>These servants can take more damage than usual thanks to the scrap metal bolted to their frames.>You have 56 normal servants >You have 17 armored servants>you have ten normal supervisorsYou have reached The Island of Flowers.Assault will commence immedietly.
>>24905140Don't underestimate waifufags capabilities, they're groomed to trick you "yeah, we'll pick that girl to torture her!", "we'll marry the pirate (just to get shit lol)" and before you know it, boom, we're making sandwitches for her.
>>24905164"No man, we're just going to interrogate her! That's it!""OH MY GOD SHE HAS A VAGINA OUR COLD HEART HAS MELTED, ALL OUR LOVE"
>>24905164I'm just here to make the ultimate biowaifu.
The T.N.A.M.D.S.S. Shadenfreude and the P.S. Red Wake rendevous on the farside of the island of flowers. Shadenfdreude is running on stealth mode, very little visible smoke, Red Wake is doing much the same though it appears she makes use of some manner of Etheric Power plant.Regardless men from both ships pile itno rowboats and make their way towards a crack in the cliffs. There's a cav, usually hidden at hightidethe cave is acessable for the next couple of hours.Ittakes some prodding and shoving but eventually you managed to get your Reanimated Servants through the cave system without much difficulty.You finally find a tunnel that leads up to the surface, from the looks of things its part of an old basement that was sealed up. you command your Servants to pick up rocks and smash at the walls. You're above the waterline now but the sooner this is done the better.It takes 3 hours but they finall smash a hole in the brick wall large enough for a normal sized human to step outside. One by one Scientist, Servant, and Pirate step into the basement.From the looks of things this building has been abandoned for a couple of years. You got lucky.It takes an hour or so but the wandering band of pirates manages to find a local road, a great deal of hijacking horses and wagons as well as tying up hostages and storing them in a dillapidated mansions basement and you're ready to go to the ball.Which is to sya you're making your way towardThe Duke of Flowers' Mansion.
>>24905344Not on my watch you faggot!
>>24905391Please. You don't want a incredibly destructive completely loyal creature as your waifu? All we need is that pirate queen to accept and we can make some... modifications.
>>24905376>ShadenfdreudeAre you just mixing it up more and more to see how long until someone comments on it?
The 700 mercenaries and a fantastic island with cliffs that form a natural fortess. There are only two safe harbors and both of those are guarded by fortresses armed to the teeth with cannons.None of these things stopped you from using a risky gambit to gain entrance to the island. Most of the Duke's forces are on garrison duty and that only leaves a couple hundred to guard his mansion.Its not enough. Reanimates charge the fortress recklessly, pirates back them up with rifle fire. The soldiers do their best to hold off the tide of not-quite-unliving flesh and succumb.You lose a lot of servants but your armored servants come away functional, if damaged.Eventually the expedition reaches the Mansion proper. The mercenaries of the Duke Surrender and throw down their weapons, then they try to march off into the wilderness.Lorren has them bound and placed with the other hostages.She eventually finds the Duke of Flowers, he's locked himself in his chamber and won't come out. She smashes down the door and subdues the man herself. She tortures him for hours, and eventually she hands him over to you, still alive, if only barely.You've taken the island of flowers.
>>24905376Okay, proceed. I imagine nothing of interest was looted from the hostages?
Okay I need to sleep so I'm stopping the quest here. Next one will be on thursday between 8:00 and 10:00 4chan time.>>24905440What am I misspelling it? Cut me some slack I'm sleepy.
>>24905470Excellent! This shall be our capital!Er, depending on what the Queen wants I guess, we have a captain's share but no more, I'm not sure how that applies to an island. We should also take first claim to things relevant to our research, but other than that I doubt anything much matters.
>>24905470We'll have to keep her cruelty for later if we ever modify her. Anyway as a sort of penchant for irony. Maybe we can make some sort of plant based reanimated from the Duke of Flowers?

>>24905628Good day and good night, I look forward to the next thread.
>>24905524More like temporary stronghold until we can complete our plans to turn our ship into a submersible.
>>24905696We do need a permanent land-side base though. You can't build a shipyard on a ship, or at least not one big enough to create ships bigger than the one you're on.
>>24905720Our ship is going to be aliveIt is going to get pregnant and give birth to rowboats.
