Transformers Quest 18: House of Doom Pastebinhttp://pastebin.com/u/Telechan4Twitterhttps://twitter.com/JoeBobotronYour name is Kracken. For hundreds of thousands of years you served as law enforcement on Cybertron, then spent another few thousands years as a terror of the dark alleys and run down slums. Then the civil war erupted and tore Cybertron asunder. Fleeing your dying world you were severely damaged trying to fend off Terrorcon, empty husks of your former people animated by Dar Energon. Then you woke up here. The research station Kammos was sterile, neat, and seemingly void of anyone other than a mysterious figure called Astroclaw who contacted you through a terminal, urging you to leave. As you did you came across your friend Gyro, a member of Cybertrons' nobility, and her mercenary acquaintance Doublecross.She told you about the death of your old friend Copper and their reason for being here.A transformer named Carnage was on this station. He killed a friend and would in turn die for it.You stand in a massive storage room lined with rows of crates. Smoking holes punch through many of the rows from an encounter with the stations robotic security, sparkless drones in gleaming white.The three of you congregate at the door to the storage room, assessing the situation."That was easy enough." Gyro says with a smile and crosses her long arms."Hope they had warranties on those things." Doublecross jokes while turning his attention to his comm."There'll be more." You say with relish. Putting your new chassis through its paces was thrilling. Your sensors read dozens of energy signatures moving all around you, though they are not dangerously close yet. Gyro nods. "Yeah your right. We should get moving.">Teleport everyone down.>Exit and look for a way down.>Take time to investigate the area.>Other (please specify)
>>34978413>>Teleport everyone down.
>>34978413>Teleport everyone down.I can't remember how dead is copper? Like how we were dead or dead dead?
>>34978413>>Exit and look for a way down.Enemy territory. Save the energon for when we need it.
>>34978555Gyro says dead dead. I say we're probably going to meet up with his reanimated corpse along with arclight as we get close to astroclaw.
>>34978474>>34978555>>34978743"Right." You grumble. Grabbing the two of them you are about to teleport when Doublecross holds up a dragon-headed hand to get your attention. "Alright, we may want to brace ourselves.""Why?" Gyro groans."Cause Repugnus is gonna blow the whole hanger out of the station." With a Snarl you locate a fairly empty room below and -zzap- reappear in there. The walls are lined with storage lockers and a light comes on once it registers the movement.>Energon Reserve-130/175The you are thrown into a wall as the station shakes, the boom of a massive explosion rattles your audio receptors.Gyro slams into you while Doublecross tumbles head over feet, tearing the doors of multiple lockers. The light flickers then fades for a moment.Once the rumbling subsides Gyro pushes away from you. "What is that rust brained idiot thinking?" She roars."Monsterbots don't do subtle." Doublecross says as he shoves a door off and rises."Not blowing us all up is subtle huh?" You growl."I'm sure Grotesque knew how much explosive to use."Your sensors detect six drones milling about outside in the hall, one looks like another goliath. There are other small storage rooms around you, likely with maintenance supplies and tools. One room seams to hold a large computer console.Below you is a single hallway surrounded energy conduits, it leads to a spherical room you can not quite get a read on. All you detect is a large sphere that your sensors are not able to penetrate.>Report you finding to the others.>Teleport down to the hallway.>Teleport to the computer room.>Take out the drones and search the area.>Other (please specify)
>>34979281>Take out the drones and search the area.
>>34979281>>Take out the drones and search the area.
>>34979281>Teleport to the computer room.
>>34979281>>Take out the drones and search the area.Can we recharge our shock gloves?
>>34979281>Report you finding to the others.Gottah stay coordinated
>>34979281>Report+Whatever other optionLet's just tell them, whatever else happens.
>>34979315>>34979421>>34979464Moving to the door you pull on your shock gloves."Party time?" Doublecross asks with a grin."Be ready." You say.There are four drones to the right, in the direction of the computer room with the goliath standing in front of its door. One passes by the door next to you and walks the other way. Flexing you hands you feel the glove fiber stretch taught. You are going to have to be careful to keep those blades from shredding them.>Sneak out and take the one who just passed by.>Attack the four in the hall.>Teleport to the goliath and take it out.>Fire the bahamut cannon at the four and the goliath.>Other (please specify)
>>34979855>Teleport to the goliath and take it out.
>>34979855>>Fire the bahamut cannon at the four and the goliath.
>>34979855Let's get technical. Even if we don't know code, we should probably know electrical work.
>>34979855>>Attack the four in the hall.No really, how do we recharge the gloves? I'm guessing shield piercing is going to be important soon.
>>34979940Kracken has some ideas. They involve mutilation.
>>34980145I think it would be more shocking if they didn't.
>>34980145Kracken is one jaded lawbot.
>>34979905>>34979940"Alright, Gyro. A drone just passed us. I want you to take it out while I hit the rest.""And me?" Doublecross asks."Your on cleanup.""Pshh."You hold up three fingers, then lower each one in a count down. Opening the door, you round the corner with your chest folding up to reveal the maw inside.>Alright so were gonna do things a bit different.>Roll 6d100 Dexterity, using the highest amount of successes of the first four.

>>34980716No, that's good anon.It's very very good.
>>349807166 sux + double critI think you did good.
>>34980737Oh shit, I forgot telechan uses under system.
>>34980716Naw dood. This is roll under. You kicked serious ass.
>>34980615>Rolled six success! Double crit!Energy surges within your circuits, boiling out into your chest mouth and dancing around the teeth. Red light bathes the area immediately in front of you.A drone turns to look at you.Your energy beam slices it in half, blows the back out of the one behind it, detonates a third and half of the fourth. The goliath is caught completely unaware and the beam lance through one shoulder and out the other. It explodes a moment before hitting the ground, tearing a chunk of wall away and revealing cables live with electricity.The beam continues on, lancing into the wall at the end of the hall then it passes out of your sensor range. The way ahead is littered with burning metal slag and smoking parts."Sweet Primus." Gyro says from behind you, her task completely forgotten. You hear a crunch as Doublecross dispatches the last drone.Your chestplate shifts back down. Striding up to the wreckage you grab hold of a pair of cable hanging out of the wall.Electricity crackles at the severed ends then is absorbed by your gloves.>Urayan Shock Gloves 2/2."Doesn't seem like you do subtle either." Doubles cross remarks.>We should investigate the computer.>We should head down.>Teleport them down.>Other (please specify)
>>34981056>We should investigate the computer.
>>34981056>"Doesn't seem like you do subtle either." Doubles cross remarks.I like this guy. Dragon bros fistbump.>Other (please specify)Have gyro check the computer while we munch on the drones to rebuild energon.
>>34981116>>34981136>>34981253Dropping the cables you turn to the others. Gyro is pushing a smoking piece of hull with her foot while Doublecross seems to be talking on his comm again."I'm gonna recharge, you want to check the computer in there, see if it has anything useful?"With a nod she says, "Sure thing chief."Letting her by you glance around the mess you made."Yeah I'm not cleaning that up." Doublecross says.You wave him off and transform. Your tentacles fan out around you and begin picking up bits and pieces. Stuffing energy cells, rifles and limbs into your maw you devour anything with any kind of energy still in them.>Energon Reserve-160/175As you eat Doublecross says, "Repugnus and Grotesque have docked at the western hanger, they're gonna sweep the place from top to bottom. We'll find this Carnage guy, and hopefully Swindle too."You stop. "Wait, Swindle's here?""Yeah. We were able to track carnage through him, he's got illegal goods shipping all over the galaxy and this place is where he's getting some of it.""Should have scrapped him when I had the chance..." You mutter."Had dealings with him?" He says without any surprise. It would never surprise anyone. Swindle was a mover and shaker, a middle man for every kind of criminal activity that occurred on Cybertron."Had some run ins. Put him away more than once."."So you were a cop eh?""Was." You confirm.From inside the computer room you hear a small explosion. You rush in and see Gyro sitting against the wall, the computers' screen a smoking ruin."Slaggin'," She waves a hand around. "Defense mechanism or whatever.""You alright?" You ask."Yeah yeah." She says once she rises.>(continued)
>>34982372Gesturing to the computer she says. "I managed to pull some files from it before it went. They have some interesting stuff on this station.""Anything we can use?" Doublecross asks."Well, they have a whole lot of experimental stuff a level up. Mobile medbays, phas-shifters, portable tractor beams, Aegis Tank Armour... on this level there's a large energon storage chamber that reads full. Those rooms are all locked down though. I was trying to get the security codes but then pow." She kicks the computer."Interesting." You say. "We don't need codes thought.""We don't?"You rev your teeth and rumble like a tidal wave.>Discuss plans for moving forward.>Go up and grab some stuff from above.>Seek out the energon storage room.>Head down, time to see Astroclaw.>Other (please specify)
>>34982774>Go up and grab some stuff from above.LOOT
>>34982774>>Go up and grab some stuff from above.Time for looting~
>>34982774>>Go up and grab some stuff from above.
>>34982774>>Go up and grab some stuff from above.Grab what we can carry then Seek out the energon storage room.Then go rek that scrub
>>34982774>>Discuss plans for moving forward.May as well get their input
>>34981056"I can do subtle...just not as fun."
Soo I've noticed we eat guns rather than picking at least one up. Uhh why?
>>34983466We literally just shot a lazer from our chest that burned through 5 people like nothing
>>34983516That takes energon. It's not going to hurt to pick up another gun to use at range. I doubt we're going to use the beam of doom on single targets at range
>>34983594We can teleport and turn into a giant fucking robot shark with tentacles.
>>34982888>>34982903>>34982937>>34982974"I like the sound of experimental weaponry." Doublecross says with his hands clacking excitedly."I do too, let's head up." You agree.Using some floor plans Gyro pulled from the computer the three of you travel through the stark white hallways. Leaving the wreckage of the skirmish behind, passing the hole you blew in the wall that your pretty sure goes right through the station and into space, you climb some stairs.As you move you become aware of another pair of goliaths flanking the entrance to the next level and another large energy signature in another section.>Rip and tear.>Stealth up behind the goliaths and tear them apart.(use path of smoke).>Other (please specify)
>>34983685>>Stealth up behind the goliaths and tear them apart.(use path of smoke).

>>34983783>>34983794>>34983831>>34983982You wave a tentacle at your companions to keep back then slowly begin creeping up the stairs, keeping low as possible.Molding your energon flow through force of will you begin to darken. The tentacles that move ahead of you become hazy, and the mental image provided by your sensors seems to have a gap where you should be.>Roll 2d100 Dexterity, Stealth>Roll

Rolled 100, 95 = 195 (2d100)>>34984200

Rolled 44, 4 = 48 (2d100)>>34984200
>>34984200Why is it a 2d100 pool? Shouldn't it just be 1d100?
>>34984286>Cit fail!>ER 155/175As you creep up you hear sudden groan from below you. What follows is the sound of tearing metal as the stairs give way below you, sending you tumbling through the hole. While the halls were bright, sterile whit you find the inner workings to be old, grimy and rusted in places. You land and a pile of scrap with more wires, supports and metal plating falling on top of you. Darkness surrounds you.Disoriented you shake the debris off and hear yelling and gunfire from above.Your sensors, examine the area around you and above. The goliaths have begun firing down the stairway, forcing Gyro and Doublecross to double back.You also discover why you fell: a single hole punched through the walls and supports, it travels from one familiar area ion this level out and away.Your snarl.>Climb back up and attack the goliaths.>Teleport up behind them and attack.>Tear your way through the walls to get to the others.>Teleport to the others.>Other (please specify)
>>34984652>Teleport up behind them and attack.
>>34984652>Teleport up behind them and attack.Path of smoke?
>>34984652I'm confused about the new dice rules. How many posts are counted per roll? Is it always 4? If we were using path of smoke on that stealth roll, shouldn't it have been 3d100?
>>34984767Uh yeah sorry. I am dumb it should have been three, crits take precedence though.Would y'all like to reroll that stealth check?
>>34984968Nah, i'm fine with suffering, I just want to understand the new system better.
>>34983970>Holdout Pistol X2 (quality 1)Has Per range. 30 damage per shot.Fires three shots. 1 Er per shot.Do cybertronian weapons not have independent power sources then?Could we maybe rig something up to fix that?
>>34985037Basically its the first four posts that count, with the one with the most successes being used. Posts in the first four with crits are the ones used. If there are more post with crits than one the one with the most crits or success is used.
>>34985126Maybe if we rolled an engineer might have to buy something for that
>>34985132Alright. Just be aware that the best of 4 thing will heavily shift the expected successes in kraken's favor.
>>34984968Eh a reroll would be awkward. Feel free to throw us a passive bennie though, if you're feeling like making up for the goof up.
Telechan, I just want you to know that I'm watching the newest movie while waiting for your updates. Every moment you wait brings me unspeakable suffering.
>>34985257I think the poor guy needs it. This is trial run though, so it might change. I'm trying to lessen the amount of posts needed to roll for something since the dice pool is pretty big. If it's to much of a boost I might lower it to three posts, but I don't want to go lower than that.>>34985126The more exotic/powerful weapons do, but basic stuff runs of their own energy. If we get some tech skills or someone who already has them on our side then yes it can be changed.>>34984691>>34984740With a snarl you -zzap- away from the junk heap and -zzap- back into existence behind the pair of goliaths. They fire their arm mounted cannons down the stairs, return fire crashing against their blast shields without effect.>ER 135/175Growling you prepare to attack the hulking drones' unprotected backs when you detect a third goliath rounding the corner behind you. Drawn by the sound of gunfire the large, gleaming white drone hefts its shield and canon in your direction.>Attack the pair of goliaths while you can.>Charge the new threat.>Teleport behind the newcomer.>Other (please specify)
>>34985661>Attack the pair of goliaths while you can.Toss one into the new guy if possible.
>>34985661>>Attack the pair of goliaths while you can.Fastball special?
>>34985661Bait it into shooting at us just as we teleport behind him
>>34985776Forgot to mention, we'll be wrassling with the goliaths and hopefully cause some friendly fire.
>>34985776das a good idea
>>34985603Pic related anon, pic related.>>34985722>>34985756>>34985776You roar a challenge at the drone stomping down the hall in your direction, coil your tentacles beneath you, then spring into the air.You watch as its gun tracks your movement and decide to get it to do the dirty work for you.Blue ringed tentacles grope out and you land on one of the drones. You attempt to gain hold of it long enough for the advancing drone to open fire.>Roll 6D100 Dexterity, Martial arts

>>34986517>My FACE is my warrantYou're a monster, you know that?
>>34986626>rolled six success!You grapple the drone without even looking at it. Tentacles coiled around its domed head and blocky shoulders allow you to cling to it as it begins to shake side to side in an attempt to throw you off. An outreaching limb snags the arm of the other drone and you, with your rides aid, manage to pull it off balance.You roar at the oncoming goliath once more.Its canon roars back. A ball of energy soars through the air and smashes into the goliath you were no longer on. Falling forward, the goliath tumbles down the hole in the stair with a crash.Now perched on the other one, you tense and pull. With a loud crack the canon arm comes loose. Only cables and wires hold it on but this is enough to allow it to put a hole in the ceiling.>Get the goliath to shoot its own again.>Bite the one underneath you.>Other (please specify)
>>34987223Point the canon at its face, use the shock gloves to make its canon shoot itself.
>>34987289veto to this. we need shockgloves for shield breaking

>>34987289>>34987443The drone whips about, trying to dislodge you but your hold is to strong. The other goliath advances with its cannon leveled."Come on slag sucker!" You bellow. You bring the loose canon dangling from the goliath up and it fires. The blast slams into the others shield in a bright burst that knocks it back a step but does little else.Below you you detect Gyro and Doublecross creeping up the stairs. You also detect the fallen goliath thrashing in at the bottom of the hole.>Roll 6D100 Dexterity, Martial Arts

>>34987965>Rolled four success! Crit fail!With no way to control the gun you simply tear it off and toss it aside.This distraction is enough. The goliath fire and strikes its fellow in the back, blowing out its circuits and blasting it forward.Once again you fall down the hole.Darkness encloses you as you bang and crash on the walls on the way down. You and the goliath land on the first to have fallen in a heap of hull and limb.Once again you find your processor jarred by the impact.Then you are tossed aside as the first of the goliath drones throws its dead partner aside.>Tear it apart.>Teleport out of there.>Other (please specify)

>>34988461>>34988471Your vision stops shaking and you find yourself upside down. Rolling you get your bearings as quickly as possible.The drone you rode down the hole is offline, your attack and the blast to the back has seen to that.Above you the form of Doublecrosses alt flies past, roaring flame and destruction.A crash draws your attention. You locate the first drone to have fallen thrashing around in the dark. It tears cables and struts from the walls and crumples conduits in its mindless fury.You spring forward with your maw open, intent on finishing the drone.>Roll 6D100 Dexterity, Martial Arts

>>34989098>Rolled six successes!With a roar you bowl the drone over.You pin its shield against the ground and shove the canon to the side to discharge against the wall. For a brief moment the area is bathed in a bright orange light.Then the sound of screeching metal starts as you tear into it. First biting off its chestplate, you then shred its internal machinery and gulp down its power cell.>>ER 155/175With a howl you leap of the wreck and clamber up the walls. Your tentacles find purchase on the many conduits and cables, letting you speed upwards fast enough to jump out of the hole.You are greeted by Doublecross. His twin headed alt mode stands on the smoldering slag that was once a goliath drone.Not detecting any other foes nearby you transform. Doublecross follows suite and jumps off the wreck."Good kill."

>>34989606>Rolled six successes!As his odd fist sails towards your head you raise an arm to block. The maw clangs off and you retaliate with a quick jab that he barely leans out of the way of. Teeth along the side of your hand scratch his cheek.He follows up with a knee that you also easily check.With a snarl he says. "Smash your ugly face!"Lunging at you he is caught mid air. Then with a turn you hurl him at the wall."Alright scrap. Start tal..." You begin, only to have Gyro push you back with her buckler."Hold on chief!" She says. "This is all a misunderstanding.""A misunderstanding? He came at me.""It's complicated." She says then sweeps the recovering Doublecross' legs out from under him."Hey! What'd ya do that for?" He cries.Grabbing his head she turns it to you."This 'bot is our friend.""Huh?" You both say.With a sigh she drops him. "He has this thing, two minds same body. They both have control when in alt mode, but only one is in robot. You can never tell which is at the controls though."Hands on her hips she gives him a hard look as he stands."I'm guessing you haven't been around since the two of you first fought?""Only seen 'em when we were trying to incinerate 'em."She rolls her eyes then gives you a shrug."You kind of get used to it." She says. "Just treat him like he has a very selective memory.">"Not sure if I'm comfortable with that.">"Whatever, lets hit those weapon caches.">Punch him again.

>>34990108>"Incinerate? ...meh, I should be mad, but it's not anywhere near the worst thing someone's tried to do to me. Or that I've done to someone else.">Punch him for good measure, then move on to weapons.

>>34990520Ya but dinobots
>>34990540They were moderately cool for all 10 minutes of screentime they got. Among the many disappointments this film brought me was that they gave the bad guys this cool cube transformation thing that they used to avoid damage in their intro scene and then never used again. Like, why have 50 fucking enemy robots when you could've made more interesting scenes with just 2?
>>34990108>"Why don't you just transform when something important comes up? I could have been introduced to both of you and not risked me eating your limbs."
>>34990160>>34990162>>34990169"Incinerate?" You shrug."I should be mad, but it's not anywhere near the worst thing someone's tried to do to me. Or that I've done to someone else."Then you turn and hit him in a special spot just below his chestplate. Caught off-guard, he goes down hard. There is an awful sound as his hull tries to transform without his transformation cog engaged. He shudders and groans.Gyro gives you a disapproving look.You make an after you gesture and she lightly punches you as she passes.You look down at the half transformed Monsterbot and say."Take it easy." Catching up to Gyro you find the lithe brown 'bot waiting impatiently in front of a well armoured door. Beyond it you sense a number of high energy signature, crate, weapon lockers and a large rig.She make an after you gesture with a sarcastic smile.You transform and rev up your teeth.>Roll 1d100 Strength (roll two if you want to use path of steel)
Rolled 14, 14 = 28 (2d100)>>34990705
Rolled 48, 22 = 70 (2d100)>>34990705
>>34990725>Rolled two successes!You feel energy surge through your conduits once more. Your servos whine and pistons whistle. With a strangle roar you dive at the door, propelled by your tentacle at an obscene speed by pure strength.>>ER 150/175A single bite crumples the armoured sheet of metal. A jerking roll tears it free.Negligently you spit the door out the creep into the storage room. A flick of your tentacles hits the light switch.Along one wall is a rack of pistols, rifles, swords and shields. The other has a stack of crates and a series of workbenches with equipment on them.At the far end of the room is the rig. It has a large set of bulky looking power armour with a large mace for a hand.You transform and let out a long, low whistle."Nice spread." Gyro says. >Check out the Aegis Tank Armour.>Examine the weapon racks.>Check out the devices on the worktables.>Investigate for hidden loot.>Other (please specify)
>>34991373Upgrade our peashooter then check out the worktables.Also rec the power armor to Gyro.
>>34991373>>Investigate for hidden loot.
>>34991373>Investigate for hidden loot.Let's see what we can find.
>>34991522The weapon rack is huge. Extending along the wall from one end of the room to the other, from floor the ceiling. Every meter lined with weapons.Most are heavily modified. Pistols that fire acid rounds, rapid fire sonic blasters, high caliber 'bot stoppers. Scatterblast rifles, lightning throwers, a sniper rifle. Fire swords, vibroblades and energon siphons.You turn to Gyro who is rummaging through the devices on the workbenches. "Hey. You should check out the armour, see if it's operational." With a nod she attaches something to her wrist then heads to the bulky suite.You turn back to the rack.Choices->Neutron Assault Rifle- Per range, 3 shots, 2ER a shot. 40 damage a shot.>Scatterblaster- Half Per range, 2 shots, uses ammo. Cone effect. 45 damage a shot.>Sniper rifle- Triple Per range. Uses ammo, Penatrating, 50 damage a shot.>Pathblaster- Per range, 2 shots, 3ER a shot. Knockback. 40 damage per shot>Teslavolt- half Per range, 1 shot, 3ER a shot. Cone, Stun, 35 damage per shot.>Energon Harvester- Half Per range, 1 shot, 4ER a shot, Line effect, 45 damage to ER, gives ER to wielder.
>>34991712>>34991728>>34991809ffffff. sorry I took so long writing that, was checking my numbers
>>34992061>>Energon Harvester- Half Per range, 1 shot, 4ER a shot, Line effect, 45 damage to ER, gives ER to wielder.Oh so very much this.
>>34992061>>Energon Harvester- Half Per range, 1 shot, 4ER a shot, Line effect, 45 damage to ER, gives ER to wielder.We are an Energon using machine. Having one more way to get it that also steal from others isn't a bad idea.>>34992091Don't worry, just make that the next thing we do.
>>34992061>Energon Harvester- Half Per range, 1 shot, 4ER a shot, Line effect, 45 damage to ER, gives ER to wielder.Definitly want this.
Alright, I need to get some sleep. Try not to get us killed. Again.
>>34992124>>34992151>>34992162Knowing how you burn through energon, even with your fuel processor (or maybe because of it), you go with the obvious choice.Energon Harvesters were illegal back on Cybertron. Something about their ability to steal power from anything without leaving any damage left the Senate uncomfortable. Did not stop them from circulating the underground. It is a clunky looking thing, three rectangular barrels and no stock. Picking it up you give it a once over then place it on the magnetic clamp on the small of your back.You hear servos whine and detect a massive energy surge. Gyro sits in the power armour. Its chest is blossomed open like a flower and you can not see her legs in the device, though her arms are visible as she busies herself with a holographic panel emitted before her.With a nod you decide to look around. >Roll 5D100 Perception, Investigation
Rolled 51, 38, 55, 39, 73 = 256 (5d100)>>34992464
Rolled 10, 42, 98, 53, 64 = 267 (5d100)>>34992464
Rolled 14, 16, 49, 80, 3 = 162 (5d100)>>34992464
Rolled 94, 15, 8, 76, 24 = 217 (5d100)>>34992464
>>34992565>Rolled five successes!Roaming around the room you decide to check every nook and cranny for anything hidden.The lockers prove to have nothing but work tools, the tables covered in devices you do not quite recognize, and the crates are full of spare parts.Then you luck out and pull a box out from under a workbench.You whistle once more.Dimensional Decimators. Three of them. Gravity distortion grenades said to be capable of tearing the fabric of space and time.Your almost afraid to even handle them."You find anything?" Gyro calls."Oh yeah." You say in awe.A commotion draws your attention to the door as Doublecross stumbles in while shouting obscenities. He points angrily at you, then is distracted by the wall of weapons. Waving you off he wanders over and pulls a sword from the rack.>Go talk to Gyro.>Work things out with Doublecross.>Look through the stuff on the workbenches, ask Gyro what they do.>Other (please specify)
>>34992873>Look through the stuff on the workbenches, ask Gyro what they do.
>>34992873>>Look through the stuff on the workbenches, ask Gyro what they do.
Is draining a robot dry with the gun more or less effective than eating it whole? If we so drain one, does eating it give any further benefit? And if we shoot a dark energon user, does it give us dark energon?
>>34992873>Look through the stuff on the workbenches, ask Gyro what they do.I wonder what's on them.
>>34992924More effective as outright eating a 'bot causes significant energy loss due to damage. Yes you can still process their body into more ER. Yes.>>34992913>>34992920>>34992973Bringing the box up onto the workbench you gingerly pick them up and secure them on your waist.From behind comes a loud thunk as Gyro gets the armour to take a step. She whoops in delight.You wave to get her attention."What do these things do here?" You ask, pointing to the devices."Which ones?"You hold up a yellow disk the size of your chest. It has a pair handles that when held allows you to stretch it out to arms length. on one side are a series of energon emitters, the other has an antigrav plate."How 'bout this?""Mobile medbay." She calls."And this?" You ask while holding up a short staff with a claw on one end."Portable tractor beam. That sphere next to it is a remote spy spider, those purple boots are magna clamps, they'll let you walk on magnetic surfaces.""What about this?" You say, holding up a fist sized rectangular device."Datamine, you can use it to copy are hard drive and everything on it."You hmm.>Which do you take (may take up to two)
>>34993292Spy Spider and Datamine
>>34993292>datamine>portable tractor beam
>>34993338>>34993433Securing the Datamine and Spy Spider in compartments on you hull you turn to take a look at the other two.By now Gyro has the Aegis Armour running to her liking and is walking it around the room. Its ponderous gait shakes the floor with each step.Doublecross is loaded with weapons. Seems he tried to take the entire rack. A pair of burning swords in each hand, a sniper rifle and slung across his back and a Pathblaster and Scatter blaster on each hip.The three of you were carrying enough illegal weaponry to put you away for life, or get you sent to the institute.Only now that your paying attention to your surrounding do you notice the energy signature moving around on this level. There are dozens of them. You detect seven security drones readying themselves just outside the doorway."We got company." You alert everyone."So?" Doublecross says with a smirk. Somehow he manages to twirl the swords without fingers."So try to keep up." You growl.-----------------------------------------------------Gonna end it here for tonight.Questions, concerns, comments all welcome.
