>BATTERY LEVELS: 39%>POWER ARMOR: 18% MAXIMUM STRENGTHDarwin's eyes flit over the heads-up and back to the treacherous path in front of them. According to the heads-up it's a main cut but the collapse wiped out almost all traces that any crews were here. He hasn't seen a working safety light for almost a thousand meters, but what he's really concerned with is what the heads-up has to say about his remaining oxygen.At least they haven't seen any more wildlife.
"The elevator isn't too far from here," Annalee's voice says in Darwin's ear, "We might be able to make it all the way without having to go through anything. "
"Is your oxygen as low as mine?" he asks into the silence of his helmet."Just about."
Annalee's voice gives out a sharp exclamation, and at first Darwin thinks she dropped her foot in a crack, but then the light of his visor swings down over Traver's head and there's something wrong because that's the only part of him.
>>38231327200% excited for this
"Why would they leave his head?" her voice asks out of the speaker in Darwin's helmet as she hunches to pick it up, and stops.
"Oh, shit," Annalee whispers, looking up with fearful wide eyes.
The thing is all legs and sharp edges and as its carapace twitches and ripples the sharp spears at the tips of its dozen or so feet clatter against the wall.
What Darwin at first takes for a beak is a glistening barb as thick as his fist that twitches wildly, but the thing remains where it is, despite its excited trembling.
"Don't move," Darwin hisses.=======Equipment check:*Two autobores*One new-mode autobore*Two heavy-duty batteries that glow in the dark*One malfunctioning computer consoleRoll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please!

The thing uncoils itself off the wall and leisurely skitters toward them and Darwin thinks of the autobores in his hands but then the monster stops."Look," he whispers over the mic.
The barb jutting from what Darwin generously calls a face squirms, and he realizes it's searching for them."It can't smell us," he says, surprised. "Because of our power armor."
"Annalee, listen to me," he says into his helmet.
"Just back up slowly. Try not to disturb the air. See, look!"Darwin takes a cautious step backward and sure enough the nightmare doesn't seem to notice, and Annalee starts to raise her foot when she gasps in terror.
The creature slithers toward Annalee and stops, quivering, less than half a meter from her, and it begins to paw at Traver's head inquisitively, but then Annalee's foot scrapes the ground and the monster's barb spasms.
"It's too close," her voice quails over the speaker in Darwin's helmet, and ends in a terrified whisper. "I can't move!"Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please!

"It's okay, I've got you," Darwin says into his mic as he raises his autobore to place it between Annalee and the creature. "Here, my finger is on the trigger. If it tries anything, it's going to get a bit through its head."
"That's it," he says as calmly as he can. "You're doing fine." He repeats himself until she's safely beyond the thing's reach, and steps back, autobore still aimed at it's single glistening black eye.
After he's sure the creature isn't going to charge him, Darwin ventures a look back.
The monster has repositioned Traver's head exactly how it was when Annalee kicked it, and as it settles back onto the wall of the cave Darwin can't help exclaiming "It's setting a trap."
After that, Darwin keeps the conversation up, and Annalee seems relieved that he does. Together they make small talk for eighteen hundred meters.
A few times they catch sight of wildlife, but nothing bothers them and Darwin is happy not to provoke anything. His oxygen monitor has been steadily blinking at him for the last ten minutes, and the air in his helmet is beginning to take on a metallic aftertaste.
Darwin is so preoccupied with keeping Annalee talking that he's surprised when she stops and exclaims "Look!"
"Looks like the mine boss's shed," Darwin breathes into his mic, more labored now. "They don't put it on the heads-up unless the company decides you need to know."What will you do now?

Rolled 11 (1d12)>>38233791See if it's open. Our air supply is low, and we need a refill.
"The power's still on," Annalee's voice says in Darwin's helmet.
"I can probably use my authorization to emergency unlock it," she says as she taps at the console mounted to the doorframe.
"There, nothing to it-"
Darwin can't believe their luck when the door begins to slide upward, but then something moves inside and before he can do anything he's staring down the barrel of a range detonator."Get away, monsters!" the man's voice shouts in Darwin's helmet, but then something seems to click in his mind and the detonator sags.
"Hey, you're not- well, everyone else is dead!"McPhereson. Company guy. Higher up than the mine boss. What's he doing here?"You can help me get out of here!" McPhereson shouts in Darwin's helmet. "You can get me to the elevator! I'll make you rich! I'll make you both rich! I'll give you anything you want!"What will you do now?

The autobores drop from Darwin's hands and he's confused about why they aren't there anymore, when he notices the jarring noise now accompanying the flashing alert that fills his heads-up.
But then the ground rushes up to meet him and he feels a pleasant drowsiness."Darwin!"
Rolled 9 (1d12)>>38234792Wake Up pls no crit fail

At some point he hears Annalee's voice and it sounds more rich than it ever has before.
"...still here?"Darwin swims back to reality, his head pounding and his stomach twisting on itself, but he's fairly sure he's alive.
>>38235418>dat filenameSo shiny!

Rolled 7 (1d12)>>38235830ROLL TO NOT BE INTERRUPTED
"Looks as though it was nothing serious," McPhereson interrupts, leaning in over Annalee's shoulder to glower at Darwin.
Suddenly a light comes over his face and his expression brightens to manic glee. "That means the two of you can take me to the elevator now!" What will you do now?
Rolled 7 (1d12)>>38235918>>38235948"Oxygen deprivation is ALWAYS serious, McPhereson."And yes, let's go to the elevator. Absolutely. We might as well go to the elevator, it's probably broken."So what do you think about the local night life, McPhereson?"
>>38235948Tell him to calm down and look for our armor.
"Fully charged, or as charged as it can be," Annalee says as she holds Darwin's power armor up for him. "Oxygen levels are all filled. Your tank's a little damaged. Just don't exert yourself and you'll be fine."
The instant he grabs his power armor Darwin feels the looming weight of trillions of tons of rock above their flimsy shelter and how vulnerable he is without it...
... and before long Darwin and Annalee find themselves waiting on McPhereson, who's assumed a facade of pure business."Just a minute," he tells them, seemingly uncaring about any previous troubles.
"What are you doing?" Annalee asks McPhereson and he flicks a flat gaze at her while the terminal continues to process."None of your concern."
"There," he says as he detaches the console and secrets it away inside his suit. "All right, let's go."Roll a d12 for anything you want to do before you head out!

McPhereson waves one hand at the tall cylinder standing against one wall. "That's the only oxygen tank. All the others were being worn. When the creatures-"
McPhereson continues to mumble to himself, but when Annalee hands Darwin his autobores and tells him with a dart of her eyes "Kept them safe for you," he feels a lot more secure in the situation.
"All right, let's go," McPhereson suddenly barks and Darwin fights the urge to flinch when the vector of the range detonator sweeps over him.
As they step out the airlock, Darwin catches Annalee's worried gaze and returns it in the silence of his helmet.

Just a heads-up lol I should be ready to start back up in an hour or so.
Oh, and for the anon in last week's episode who asked about Duplo compatibility, that wasn't the first time a Duplo piece has shown up in Lego Quest!
This hippo's shown up a couple times too, but it wasn't actually "connected" to anything. It can connect to a baseplate, though.
"Just... just a second."
"Maybe you should let one of us carry that for a while," Annalee's voice says in Darwin's helmet, but McPhereson shoots her a look of virulent rage through his exhaustion. He's been lugging that range detonator for eight hundred meters over rough ground, and he's not wearing power armor.
"I need it for protection!" he shouts in Darwin's headset, and as McPhereson wearily jerks it farther out of her reach and menacingly close to Darwin, their helmets' external mics pick up the sound of wildlife.
>>38245542>>38245579This dialogue is starting to sound repetitive...
"What was that?" McPhereson shrieks, waving the barrel of the detonator with trembling grip."Watch it," Darwin says into his helmet. "You're going to start another collapse-""Shut up! They can see me!" McPhereson rages and and in the glow of his heads-up Darwin can see his wide terrified eyes.

Darwin doesn't want to kill McPhereson if he can help it so he dials back the strength on his power armor and swings a fist that nevertheless is enough to temporarily dislodge the safety seal on McPhereson's helmet as Annalee's voice shouts his name in surprise.
McPhereson coughs for a few seconds and pushes himself over to sit up with a wince and gasps "You... you attacked me!"
"Just hold on, Mr. McPhereson," Annalee's voice says soothingly in Darwin's helmet. "We need to keep our heads level if we want to all get out of here."
"You're going to get us killed if you keep waving around that deton-" Darwin starts to say, when McPhereson cuts him off.
"You want to kill me! You're working with them! You want them to eat me!"McPhereson, flush with insane terror, throws himself toward the detonator!Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please!

"No! Get away! Get away from me!" McPhereson's voice echoes inside Darwin's helmet."Whoa - okay, let's just calm down-" Darwin says into his mic, raising his hands as the range finder hangs in the air ready to vaporize him.
Darwin is trying to work the chances he has of grabbing the barrel and pulling it away before McPhereson can engage the detonator because no matter which direction it goes off in a collapse is almost certain when McPhereson suddenly gets a wide-eyed look of childish glee and seems to forget all about him."Hey, look at that!" the voice in Darwin's helmet exclaims.
>>38246512b-but, muh 11. >>38246472

"I'm going to live!" McPhereson shouts as he takes off in a dead run toward the lights."Wait!" Annalee's voice cries in Darwin's helmet.

"I made it! I made it! I-"
"-where is everything?"
"McPhereson, you idiot, don't go running off like that again!" Darwin shouts into his helmet. "We have two kilometers to cover before we get to the elevator, so-"
"Look, they're back on!" McPhereson exclaims with a voice of pure childish glee. "The lights are back on! The lights-"
"...what?" he asks, dumbfounded as the lights begin to bob and move closer to us, forming a circle.
>>38246979Oh this nigga crazy.
The first one clambers out of the shadows, and Darwin can see a pair of mandibles the size of his autobore's bit around a single staring eye. It darts forward a meter, pauses motionless, then skitters closer and leaps!
"Yaaah!" McPhereson's voice shrieks in Darwin's helmet but Darwin can't pay attention to it because the rest of the creatures take this as a good sign and close in!

McPhereson's voice screams in Darwin's helmet and keeps screaming over and over until it's just a wet cough.
Darwin barely pays attention. Pushed to the brink of exhaustion, he finds himself fighting as he never has before, impaling one of the creatures on his whirring autobore as it leaps to snap at his head-
- and immediately lunges out to drive the second autobore through another, piercing its carapace and sending gouts of its insides flicking away into the black air!
A third scuttles close to Darwin's foot, and though his autobores both whirr with furor...
... he elects to end its life the old-fashioned way, smashing its head into the stone with the heavy boot of his power armor, forcing out a viscous splatter of fluorescent sludge that coats his leg as the creature spasms and dies.
McPhereson is gone by the time Darwin is finished, but whatever dragged him away didn't bother with the range detonator, and Darwin thinks it might be safer for them just to leave it there."Annalee?" he asks into his helmet but all he hears is silence and his own labored breathing.
>>38248233Bring it, we're gonna need it to get Annalee back.
Darwin backtracks to where McPhereson broke and ran and something suspended in the air glimmers.

"Hang on, Annalee," Darwin says into the dead air of his mic.
"I'm coming to get you back."
He stalks through the black silence, and the wildlife circles around him but gives him a wide berth, almost as though they understand the danger he poses.
"Well? Come on!" he exclaims over the external speaker, and his challenge is met with silence as the creatures vanish away from the sound."Thought so," he mutters to himself and resumes his walk, uphill now, the only way she could have gone.
>>38249589i cant F5 fast enough, its like there's a rip in time!

Darwin reaches down and snaps a piece of stone away with the fist of his power armor and casts it into the abyss...
... and when his external mic finally detects the sound of it impacting the ground far below, he notices what lies on the far side of the expanse.

Darwin's heads-up clamors and begs, but he ignores it and disengages the safeties, opening up the full amount of his power armor's remaining supply.He could probably make it to the elevator from where he stands, but he's not going there yet.
Instead, he digs the fingers of his power armor into the rock until it starts to compress, and diverts all the strength in his armor to the legs."Annalee," Darwin says her name again into the empty black.
So great is the distance that Darwin feels vertigo, as though he lies suspended in the air, and only the navigation of the heads-up allows him to plot his vector, and he sees that he has aimed his power armor perfectly, for the peak where Annalee hangs suspended appears beneath him and swells in size until it eclipses his vision!
Had he not had time to stow the detonator Darwin might have lost it, for he impacts against the spire so hard that he needs both hands to keep from tumbling off again!
"Annalee!" he calls into his mic as he scales the last few meters. "Are you all right?"
"Darwin?" her voice responds, weakly. "Is that you? My armor's dead. I can't move."What now?
Rolled 10 (1d12)>>38251270Carefully drill away the web
"Hold on," Darwin says into his helmet. "I'm going to try and cut you loose with my autobore."The webbing is tough and sticky, and begins to smoke as the friction of the bit heats it up. At one point Darwin thinks the autobore might seize up from the tangled mess, but then the last of it snaps away and Annalee's body sags loose.
"Thanks," her voice says in Darwin's ear, and turns to a nervous giggle, "but I still can't move. My power armor's dead."
"That's twice you've saved my life now," Annalee's voice says in Darwin's helmet. "If we were counting."

"Hold on, I've got those batteries," Darwin says into his mic as he reaches down to the storage compartment on the fringe of his armor...

"Here... my armor's battery is at eighteen percent. That'll be enough to restart yours." Darwin starts to reel out a power cord when something collides with the spire and throws him off-balance!

"Darwin!" screams Annalee's voice in his helmet as he tumbles off the cliffside into the black void.
Darwin's stomach lurches with vertigo as the fall drags on forever, and when he finally impacts against the stone floor of the cavern he feels it even through the power armor.Then something moves at the edge of his helmet's light...
...and as an enormous cluster of eyes topping a head the size of a small spaceship looms into view above him Darwin knows that he might not make it out after all.

The instant Darwin's finger triggers the range detonator his external mic shuts off to avoid deafening him but the reverberation on the stone floor nearly throws him off his feet.
The detonator works as intended, and a wave of energy obliterates the titan's skull and converts its contents to a plume of superheated gas that flashes bright enough to illuminate the cave ceiling three kilometers overhead.

The wildlife is caught in the flash, helplessly blinding themselves staring into the wonderful terrible light, brighter than anything their kind has seen for billions of years, and Darwin's heads-up is blocking out everything and all his computer's readouts are screaming and he keeps his finger on the trigger.
When Darwin finally shuts the detonator off it takes his heads-up a full minute to come back online.
The creature's head is completely gone, along with most of its front section. What's left above the halfway point is nothing but a bubbling mess of molten chitin.Annalee's voice calls in his ear.

They walk in silence, too exhausted to speak, and Annalee's suit is only rated for twenty minutes of emergency oxygen. Darwin's thoughts grow darker and darker when the glow of safety lights assails them and they find themselves walking down a pristine cut.
"Look!" Annalee laughs in Darwin's ear.
Darwin didn't know what to think before they came around the corner. Certainly that the elevator wouldn't be working. He assumed the entire thing had collapsed, that they would spend the rest of their short lives gasping on a pile of rocks and then something would eat their bodies. But not this.

-and it leaps at him hard enough to knock him down!Roll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do!

Darwin jabs at it with his autobore but the thing is too quick and its mandibles clamp down on his wrist, cutting through the metal and severing his hand!
A roar echoes inside Darwin's helmet as his heads-up blares warnings, but the rush of losing his hand is too much and so he squeezes harder and harder and the heads-up glows brighter and brighter as the power armor overheats, and the monster in his remaining hand thrashes and thrashes and the lure above its maw clatters off his helmet but Darwin keeps squeezing...
... and squeezes harder, and the monster's claws rake Darwin's visor and trembles and lets out a shriek in a frequency that he couldn't hear without his helmet.
But Darwin hears it and it feels good and the thing explodes in luminous gore that splatters his helmet and finally sags to trembling stillness, nothing but dead weight now.
"Come on," Darwin says into his mic as he reaches his good hand down to Annalee.
>>38256407LQ go to sleep. Your text formatting kind of went out the window.>10/10 epic, gripping quest.
Well, that was a pretty fantastic run, even more so considering that the whole thing was done on a whim just because of a lighting test with the blacklight.>>38256451Glad you enjoyed yourself, anon! I certainly did!
>>38256777Yay we saved Annalee! And survived!
The dangling bits of "cut webbing" were an official Lego piece - this really long Technic band that I sometimes use when I need a really long rope or to tie someone up train-tracks-and-a-mustache style.
The response to Darwin pulling the trigger on the detonator took a long time because I wanted to get it perfect. The explosion went through several evolutions lol. Here you can see the initial draft.
I thought it just made it look like a Mixel, so I added some fire and tried to funnel the explosion into a cone. Getting close, but still not quite right.
Finally I got it just right. Here it is in double-size format.
I just remembered I made this image after last week's episode.
>>38257067It was a fun ride.

>>38257228I wanted to make a Master Shreepsman, too, and I forgot all about it. Fugg.Quit making all these great characters that I want to copy and tactically deploy throughout my collection.
Holy shit that was intense. Are we safe now?

>>38259091I even considered getting an Exo-suit for that torso. Then I realize that I lack all the other parts as well...
>>38257067It's a small miracle Darwin and Annalee did not die yet.
>>38257127We only survived that because another anon rolled a 1 in an attempt to die. We gained and lost immortality in this adventure.
>>38258400This is great
Losing a hand seems to be pretty common among Lego Quest protagonists.
>>38257016This is gorgeous
>>38260486>It's a small miracle Darwin and Annalee did not die yet.Elevator is actually a mimic.
>>38266420This is at least the fourth or fifth time it's happened.
>>38270220Well it's probably the easiest nonlethal bodypart to remove.

>>38271859 Didn't Altman the Futuron loose an entire leg in one story?
>>38274699http://legoquest.wikia.com/wiki/Altman_of_Futuron>Altman lost his leg when he challenged Aphelion to an OTC duel for leadership of the clan. Using his own severed leg as a weapon, Altman bested Aphelion and later sought to use the Ice Men to attack a group of Circuit-Man mercenaries before they could deliver the scientist to the Blacktrons.
>>38276456I was there, it's all true.
>>38243749Don't tease me with Apprentice Quest pictures!
>>38276547Your action scenes are always great, LQ.One can tell how much effort you put into them.
>>38278132I don 't even remember what happened there last time. So many characters. I think it involved lesbians
>>38280802Witches and lesbians! And nasty mosquito monsters! But the real husbando is the were-shark.
>>38271859I kinda want this to happen even if it destroys a piece
