You casually deflect Ted’s question and ask about your hypospray instead, turns it to be some kind of very expensive medical serum that is capable of healing nearly any problems you may have. Very interesting, so you head out of the room.“Hey wait a minute where are you going?” asks Ted.You ignore him and continue out of the room and motion for the giant lizard to come over. How do you even inject this into a lizard with their scales? “Goblins, what the hell? No wait stop what are you doing with that stuff?” Ted seems to be getting rather angry that you are ignoring him now. So you just jam the hypospray into the lizard’s mouth and inject it there, the lizard responds by trying to eat your arm but its teeth can’t break your skin. You watch as the scars the lizard had from being set on fire vanish, that stuff must be pretty good.“That stuff is worth billions of credits, did you just inject it into a lizard?” asks Bill as the other researchers come out into the hallway. They look very uneasy at the sight of the giant lizard, goblins, and giant spiders. You are going to need to handle this before they run off and try to alert someone.The shadow squads hear that the white coats are calming down inside as there is a whirring of moving machines and then part of the wall begins to slide apart.

The shadow squads prepare several tripwires to trigger sudden growth of the magical seeds as they fall back towards the wall that the other goblins built. They leave the area around ‘storage’ left untouched, good stuff in there for chief probably and around the ‘security’ guy who the white coats were trying to get help from. Then they put up some Tribeburner explosive mines to defend the wall before clambering over it for protection."I like you people, you are good at heart. But you work for those who see the goblins as nothing more than pests - they have feelings, just like us. I am the Goblin King, and I would like to invite you to work with me. I come across many valuable things, and can pay you with some of them if you wish. If you decline my offer, then I am afraid that we will have to take you by force." You give them a stunning speech.>37 vs middle dc 35 pass “Goblin King? What are you even going on about slummer?” asks Ted. You take a moment to explain that DMV place some albino chick threw you down a hole, kinda bullshit how does anyone even move that fast.“Holy shit! Director Snow threw you down into the pit and you fucking lived? Just what are you?” Bill suddenly interrupts.“I told you I’m Goblin King now and its better with me than against me.” You tell them once again.“Why the hell not? I’m sick of making inventions to distribute to living ‘geniuses’ and getting no credit.” Says Phil and with that the others decide to join up as well.“Hey man just don’t go all kill crazy on the learning lab. You got robotics for that, fuck steve.” Says Bernard.> Five human researchers recruited.With that all settled what should you do?> Continue down the hallway> Fall back for now> OtherResearchers> Gather their stuff> Wait in the lab> Go get the teleporter down working> Other

Anything we can't take with us I need to destroy or sabotage."Then destroy or sabotage anything they say we can't take.Gather their stuff and get teleporters down workingWhen we do that we can just send squads up, a single person back down, rinse and repeat for army
>>41910307We should probably not send themBack without us accompanying them.Our ballistae'd turn them into pincushions.
>>41910362Well yeah, we could easily send them down with a few goblins to explain stuff
Rolled 8, 2 = 10 (2d20)The goblins hear gunfire echoing from down the hallway. Something must have triggered some of the trap plants. Which means something is coming, it should take them a while to get here since there are traps and robots can’t shadow walk. So the goblins prepare their crossbows and get ready to defend.The researchers can teleport down with goblins so they will not be killed, for now though they will focus on getting their research gathered up for transport you decide."Have the goblins help you guys gather all the important things for transport back to the goblin city. Things we can’t take should be easy enough to destroy or sabotage.” You tell them.“Whoa since when do the pit goblins have a city?” asks bill.“Well they have a king now too apparently since we work for him.” Responds Ted. Then you leave them to it with a bunch of goblins to help them move stuff back to the teleporter. You wonder for a moment how surprised these guys are going to be when the goblins cart out more stuff than exists in the laboratory. In any event it should help jumpstart the city, soon you’ll have running water and electricity.After a long trek down the hallway you come to a room that is the ‘Artificial intelligence research lab’ the guys said that there are women here, you haven’t seen a women in forever could be good to recruit them.> Ignore it and keep going down the hall> Break down the door> Hack open that keypad> Other

>>41911133Tank OP, Blizzard pls nerf
The research guys with the help of the goblins have moved everything they thought was important to the teleporter room. The researchers are surprised that there was a teleporter behind the blast door, they thought that room was a top secret research lab or something. With all their stuff moved they get to work repairing the damage that the plant bombs and careless goblin scavenging caused. With any luck the teleporter will be fully functional soon.Well it looks like the AI lab is still sealed shut from the alarm going off so you decide to leave it be for now and mount the lizard to hurry down the hallway. The sound of gun fire is coming from just ahead so you ignore another teleporter room and rush ahead.> 32 vs upper dc 30A pack of those animal robots is fighting a swarm of carnivorous plants who are desperately trying to push past to eat the group of researchers who don’t even notice you until you ride the giant lizard between them and the continuing onslaught.“Where did a giant lizard come from?” One asks“They are going to kill us all!” A pair of them notice the goblins and start screaming.Looks like your stealthy squads released some of the plants as a distraction but the researchers don’t know this and you can use that to your advantage.> Attack the robots> Attack the plants> Tell them to follow the goblins to safety> Capture the researchers> Other

Rolled 5, 8 + 25 = 38 (2d10 + 25)>>41911576Lets go for a show of power and do it twice. We really wanna destroy the robots too.
Rolled 2, 3 + 25 = 30 (2d10 + 25)>>41911576
Rolled 2, 4 + 25 = 31 (2d10 + 25)>>41911576
>>41911576Oh right, its automatically quickened too, so if anything survives we can cut it down.
Rolled 1 (1d2)A tie for empowerment, guide us dice!>1 Once>2 Twice
Rolled 5, 5 = 10 (2d20)“Quick follow the goblins away to safety!” You yell to the researchers.“No the goblins brought the plants here.” That same pair keeps trying to convince the others.“Sorry about your robots!” You yell as you grab at the mana in the air pulling it to do your bidding. There seems to be far more energy here than in the pit, so you keep pulling using far more mana than normal to craft two large beams of fire. You align them to cover as much of the area in which the plants and robots are fighting in. Each of the two beams are about half a foot in diameter and one cuts open the robots closest to you as they materialize into existence. The further one cuts apart the plants and sets them on fire.>38“Oh shut up already you two have been hysterical this whole time, the rest of us are getting out of here.” The others just drag the complaining pair away and follow the goblins.The few reaming robots are forced into the beams and are destroyed, the plants by now are all on fire from the searing rays, but they keep trying and failing to force their way past them.There is a thunderous crash from inside the robotics lab and heavy metallic footsteps signal the arrival of a new robot.“I see you think you can attack us. Fool! The director left this operation to me and you won’t mess things up for me.” A man says from atop the robot. Past the slight glow of the force field you can read the name on his badge, ‘Steve’. It is another one of those giant robots that they sent to attack before, damn it those guys were right, fuck Steve.> Attack Steve and his robot.> Force the robot back to the searing rays> Shoot it> Throw something>OtherGoblins> Use ranged support > Attack>Fall back> Other
>>41912113The sound gun seemed effective at getting past shields, so use it againGoblins use ranged support, specifically trying to make a cloud of explosions on the robot to block its view
>>41912113>> Attack Steve and his robot.Pay the extra mana to keep ray on.And go in to do the most damage we can to the robot.Have goblins use ranged support.
Rolled 8, 19 = 27 (2d20)Alright ranged support from the goblins while you attack. Your gun is actually the most damaging thing you have.Do you want to use ignite weapon and double empower it?Either way 2d10+10 to mess the robot up.
Rolled 2, 9 + 10 = 21 (2d10 + 10)>>41912404Fire sonic rounds? Im not sure how itd work!...but that would definitely make it tear through the robot, our biggest threat. Yes please.

>>41912404>ignite weapon and double empower itsure.100% more effective ignite weapon. gives us a bit more damage. for 3 full rounds.
The goblins begin to shoot their exploding crossbow bolts as they fall back to a safe distance. The robot’s force field is just absorbing all their attacks like they are nothing. Steve is sitting on top of the robot furiously typing something on a laptop. You have the lizard rush closer to the robot to try and stop whatever Steve is trying, but it’s too slow and the robot’s main cannon fires at the lizard.>29You grab the magic around you and what the hell, you force it into your gun trying to ignite it like you do with your sword. Glowing orange lines appear along the gun and you open fire. The gun shoots three balls of fire out rather than the atmosphere distorting energy spheres it usually fires.The first ball strikes the robot’s shield causing an eruption of fire that ripples along the surface of the shield. The next two shots pierce straight through the rippling ball of fire and hit the robot. The force of the blows cripple the main cannon, blow a hole into the side of the robot revealing its reactor and throws Steve to the ground.>Your status - 6/6 hp, 12/12 mana, 7/24 external mana> Lizard status – 22/26, regenerating> Ignite weapon - 5/6 turns remain> Searing ray- 4/4 turns remain>Goblin status – Providing ranged support>Enemy status – Robot severely damaged, main cannon ruined and reactor exposed.

>>41912733>> Attack the robotHave the goblins capture Steve. and muffle him.
>>41912733Have the goblins take steve, muffle him, strip him, and bind him.Robot is clearly user operated, not ai operated. Get to the laptop.
>>41912798Seems smart to me
Rolled 15, 7 = 22 (2d20)Ok I waited for a tiebreaker and it looks like we grab the laptop while goblins grab Steve.writing
The robot still isn’t moving so you tell the goblins to run in and grab Steve. You see the laptop dangling by some wires from the robot. The screen says ‘UPLOAD’ with the bar at 60%, so you disconnect the laptop and the screen displays an error that reads upload failure. Good that should mean the robot stays deactivated and it does. It is a bit damaged but you could probably fix the thing up later and use it yourself.The goblins have been busy with Steve, he is now bound, gagged and naked – the goblins didn’t really need to do that last one. The rest of the group has already started ransacking the robotics lab and piles of loot, including the entire inactive robot, are being taken away. Then a guy in a black suit walks up to you. “Not bad, you broke Steve’s robots, looks like I get paid without needing to work.” He says, “But I’ll need to take him back from your little goblin friends and I’m going to have to ask you to leave.” Looks like this guy runs the security on this level of the ring, your experience tells you that he is tougher than he looks.> Give him Steve> Don’t give him Steve> OtherAnd> Head to the AI lab> Go to blast door teleporter> Go to the other teleporter> Other
>>41913505Point your gun at steve. "Either we take him, or he dies. We can't have someone like him working for these people. So, what's it going to be?"
>>41913622Oh, right. And if he accepts, head to the Room steve came out of.
>>41913505> Head to the AI lab
>>41913732The goblins looted that room, you can still go in there if you want to though.
>>41913845Hmm...might be something they couldnt loot that was important or good to destroy...
Alright I'll go with this stuff I guess.2d10+10 for effectiveness.
Rolled 5, 8 + 10 = 23 (2d10 + 10)>>41913997would the social mods apply at all, being that we're using a hostage to intimidate?Also, did we destroy the stuff we couldnt take from the first place we looted?

>>41914019They would normally, but not against this guy.And yes the goblins have looted and destroyed everything they could.
You point your gun at Steve and tell the man, "Either we take him, or he dies. We can't have someone like him working for these people. So, what's it going to be?" You try to channel all your skill and charisma into convincing this guy.“These people? That’s a new one, but I can’t let you take him contractual obligations and all.” The man says.“Looks like he dies then.” So you shoot Steve, the three flaming sonic rounds pulp his body instantly.“I wish you didn’t do that, now I’m going to have to work.” Is all the man says.He pulls a gun from his jacket and shoots you in the head. There is a crackle of electricity when it impacts and blood rolls down your face before the wound heals.“Now that’s new, haven’t seen something like that since I left the combat division.” He says as he pulls a knife out next. The blade is blue and a frosty mist wafts away from its surface.>Your status - 6/6 hp, 12/12 mana, 7/24 external mana> Lizard status – 26/26, regenerating> Ignite weapon - 3/6 turns remain> Searing ray- 2/4 turns remain>Goblin status – Providing ranged support>Enemy status – Unharmed man in a black suit> Sword attack> Shoot him> Throw something> Force him into the searing rays> Other

>>41914348That or pull the Sickeater dagger. I'm up for a knife fight.
>>41914293Our gun is incredibly strong now, so we migt as well >shoot himIn a way where the force might stumble him into the searing ways. Angle it correctly and such."You're an interesting man! What's your name, friend?"
>>41914293We just took a headshot! Holy fuck, we're totally badass! Apophis, on a side note how much damage did we just take the head?Lastly>Sword Attack - play knifey-spooney
>>41914439It was a surprise attack for 4 mundane and 3 electric damage. High enough to break your DR. but too low to matter with your regen.
Rolled 2 (1d2)Going into melee combat seems to have a slight advantage, so tell us dice what weapon>1 hands>2 sword
Rolled 18, 19 = 37 (2d20)I forgot to ask you guys to give me2d10+10 to sword him I guess.
Rolled 5, 4 + 10 = 19 (2d10 + 10)>>41914642Goblin support best support
Rolled 10, 6 + 10 = 26 (2d10 + 10)>>41914642Are we there yet? I wanna use my swwoooord
Rolled 5, 5 + 10 = 20 (2d10 + 10)>>41914642Get rekt
You pull your Iron sword out and face off with the guy as your sword is wreathed in flames."You're an interesting man! What's your name, friend?" you ask.“Just a nobody like you.” He responds.Seems like he isn’t too big on banter but when he attacks you block a couple stabs and counter attack.>26 vs middle dc 23You have the reach advantage so after his failed stabs you swing at him hard. He tries to block with his knife but the force of the blow is too much, with a hiss of steam from the blades contact he is thrown backwards towards the searing rays. That’s when the goblins open fire. Explosive bolts rain down on the guy and when the goblins move to reload the smoke clears showing his body bloody under his newly torn suit.“Not bad, but can you handle magic?” He asks, a red glow appears in his free hand.That’s when the giant lizard blindsides him, mauling the guy and throwing him into the nearest searing ray. He tries to stop from hitting it but fails as his arm comes into contact with it at the elbow cutting his arm off instantly.>Your status - 6/6 hp, 12/12 mana, 7/24 external mana> Lizard status – 26/26> Ignite weapon - 2/6 turns remain> Searing ray- 1/4 turns remain>Goblin status – Providing ranged support>Enemy status – Bloodied and poisoned man in a torn black suit, missing one arm> Sword attack> Shoot him> Throw something> Force him into the searing rays> Other
>>41914939Shoot him, aim for the face. With hope, even if he fails to die, it might blind him."It's too bad we couldn't work together."
>>41914939Shoot him in the leg.I like this guy too much to kill him outright.
Rolled 2 (1d2)Let’s keep things moving and shoot him.>1 head>2 legNeed 2d10+10And pay one mana to continue searing ray?
>>41915019I'll back.As much as I also like this guy, we can't allow for loose ends. Loose ends get people killed, as reggie knows all too well.
Rolled 4, 1 + 10 = 15 (2d10 + 10)>>41915186Spend the mana, we can afford it, and zoning is useful.
Rolled 10, 6 + 10 = 26 (2d10 + 10)>>41915186Continue searing ray
Rolled 1, 7 + 10 = 18 (2d20 + 10)>>41915186
>>41915193Given this, I'm willing to retract my leg shot >>41915049, if it's not too late.
>>41915186Yeah countinue ray.
"It's too bad we couldn't work together." You say.“Yea, shame I’ll have to kill you now.” He responds. He then releases the spell he was preparing, seems that losing his arm didn’t disrupt it at all. Two balls of fire materialize and slam into your giant lizard, looks like the lizard pissed this guy off enough to become the spell’s target.>26 vs upper dc 25You hesitate, it would be nice to keep a guy like this alive, he could help you out a lot. So you take aim at his leg with your gun, he notices and runs forward to attack you. You can’t have any loose ends though, so you switch targets and shoot him in the head. There are three screeches and bursts of flame as the gun’s shots connect.The man’s body is flung backwards by the force of the blow his headless corpse is then cut in half by the searing ray. > Lizard status – 14/26 hpA shame that he had to die, could have been good working with him but if he was all the security on this level and the robotics lab is already taken care of you will be able to take your time and go through everything. The alarm is still blaring, it could be a good idea to head to the security area and get that turned off first.You> Go to one of the rooms (which)> Talk with the nine researchers who went with the goblins> Talk with the five guys from before> OtherGoblins> Keep standing guard> Begin teleporting stuff back to the city> Loot more rooms (which)> OtherHave a free mspaint map of the ring for winning, enjoy.
>>41915544Go To the security area, after searching guard's body for any sort of keycard or useful items. Goblins begin teleporting things to the pit.
>>41915544> Talk with the five guys from beforeLoot the guy, for his shit. Possibly gain his security clearance or something.> Begin teleporting stuff back to the cityOnce we have the alarm off we can begin to look everything. The researchers should have grabbed a few good implants.
>>41915630>>41915759Lets teleport the guards body after looting it.We can dissect it later to see if he had anything good in him.
>>41915630Seems like the smartestDont want something worse coming
>>41915544> Head to the AI lab
Feel free to add in anything more you guys want to do, had a power surge and need to rewrite anyways.
With the searing rays dissipated you check the guy’s body for a security pass or something. You find a solid red card with no visible markings on it so you take that along with his knife and gun. Then a quick lizard ride later you are at the security station, it doesn’t take long to find where to insert the card. With the red level clearance you are able to disable the alarm which ends the annoying red flashing lights once and for all.You have the goblins continue to strip down the place and teleport back all the stuff from the storage, security, robotics lab, and power generation lab rooms. Then you meet up with the five guys to talk a bit more.“You guys got all your stuff moved?” you ask them.“I’m not sure we had this much in the lab before but yea it’s done.” Says Bill.“So what is in the commercial and cybernetics labs?” you ask.“Commercial is boring just gadgets to sell to the city.” Ted tells you, “but the cybernetics lab is working on prosthetics right now robotic limbs to send designs to the living world mostly.”“Help the others stop freaking out so much” You tell the guys and point to the nine researchers you picked up by the robotics lab. You don’t get much of a response other than ‘yea whatever.’Well now you know what is in the three remaining labs so you head to the AI lab. The door opens when you use the red keycard so you don’t need to hack the door open this time.You walk in to find pair of blonde twins working on computers typing at abnormally fast speeds, they don’t even notice you enter. The room is lined with computers all running learning simulations of some kind. There is another person ankle deep in an opening under a large screen; she is muttering curses as she tries to fix whatever went wrong with the machine.> Get the twins attention> Talk to the repair lady> Just look around> Other
>>41916865Signal for shadow squad to get in position to stop them if they suddenly go to do anything hasty and unwise.Then walk up to the repair lady. "What's wrong with The machine? May I take a look?"

>>41916865>> Talk to the repair ladywell, at least we now have researchers than can look into all of our stuff. And tell us if we have implants and exactly what they do. A long with that. They can oversee the construction of a bigger better lab, and better defense system.

>>41917224Science is diplomacy to them.
Now for an even more important question, since you passed the first check.What color should glowing crystals be?and another 2d10+11
Rolled 10, 3 + 11 = 24 (2d10 + 11)>>41917527Blue.
Rolled 8, 9 + 11 = 28 (2d10 + 11)>>41917527In my head they were always tyrian purple.My favorite color, coincidentally.
Rolled 4, 3 + 11 = 18 (2d10 + 11)>>41917527blue
Looks like you are completely unnoticed so you have the shadow squads sneak in as well and take up hidden positions for ambushes if necessary. Then you tap the wall by the opening to get the repairwoman’s attention. "What's wrong with the machine? May I take a look?" you ask her. “Who the-” She hits her head on something and releases another bunch of curses before sliding out into the open. “Who are you, never seen anyone around here with a big sword.” She says while rubbing her head.“Just you know looking around, seeing if there is any trouble.” You say, thinking fast you flash her your red keycard.“Damn they sent a red down here? What did you fuck up?” She asks, “Just kidding I don’t want to know but if you really want to take a look.”This red card seems to be rather important if it gets that kind of reaction but you maintain the ruse and slide into the opening. There are wires and glowing crystals everywhere looks like someone jury rigged improvements right over the top of whatever the original design was. There is box of tools, repair supplies and a bunch of different color crystals.> 26, You’re smart now, you fixed a reactor, you can do this too how hard could fixing some wires and magical crystals be?> AwarenessYou spot a couple of bad wires and use the repair supplies to fix them. Then you notice a few connectors have been undone and put them back into what you think is the right place. Then you slide out the all the crystals that are not blue, they are obviously all wrong. Then you replace them all with fresh new blue ones like they should have been the whole time.(1/2)
(2/2)Then you see a much larger crystal that glows with a sickly green color, that’s just not right at all. You fish around in the box of repair supplies trying to find a bigger crystal and just when you think that there are none you pull out a nice large tyrian purple crystal. Not quite blue but it fits the slot and its better than green so you swap the crystals out and look it all over. Yup looks good enough, so you slide back out with the box.“There you go fixed it.” You tell the repairwoman.She pokes her head in to look at what you did. “Where did you get all these blue, wait is that one purple what the-” She hits her head again.“Just turn it on and watch I’m sure it’ll be fine.” You say.“Yea yea yea, I got it.” She says while rubbing the back of her head again. She fiddles with a nearby computer for a bit then the huge screen turns on flooding the room with blue light.There is a swirl of purple and a face appears on screen.“Repairs completed all systems are functioning. Thank you.” A robotic voice chimes out.“Wow, fixed it and its personality too.” The repairwoman says. “Who are you again?”“A responsible question to ask Dr. Harrington. This man has no records of existing.” The robotic voice says.> I am the goblin king!> Give your real name> Invent a new name for yourself> OtherAnd> Ask questions> Get them to join you> Other

There are all the researchers from the other sectors, including a few that you have not even seen yet, even your giant lizard has poked its head into the room. Every single member of the impromptu audience has been brought to tears by your rousing speech.(1/2)
(2/2)“Truly a moving speech.” The robotic voice says. “As the organics are all too busy crying, I will inform you that yes we shall join you.”“My scans indicate that you have control of the experimental long range teleporter on this level, I will perform the calculations necessary to relocate all the equipment of this level to your city in the pit via teleport.” The AI continues.“It seems that your repairs have increased my abilities, thank you goblin king, calculations are complete. Initiating complete teleport sequence now.” The AI states.There is a flash of light and you find yourself once more in the goblin city.> [ End ]I’m going to need a day to figure all this out so that is the end of things for today.I’ll stick around for questions/comments/criticism/spending exp.>You finished a thread, thanks for playing +10exp> AI repair +10exp, +5 intelligence> AI personality alteration +10 exp, +5 stat points> Researcher recruitment +50exp> Incredible luck bonus +10 luck, +10 stat points>Current total exp: 81>Current total stat points: 15
>>41919040Insane luck! I fuckin love it. Tons of researchers and even an ai work for us now, holy shit.Ill need a bit for stats.
Rolled 7, 2, 5, 10, 1, 1, 2, 9, 10, 9, 10, 7 = 73 (12d10)Magic, as per usual!
>>41919124nice roll.Guys would you be willing to to save some exp. For when we get an implant to rank that up to like 5 asap.>>41919040Or could we get that now? Now that we know it exists?
>>41919168I'll need to prepare the implants that will be possible for you to obtain, but yes I'll allow you to take it to rank five if you want to.I was expecting a more aggressive attack, not total diplomacy domination.
>>41919242Man, we're a secret agent.Smooth. Fucking. Operator.
Int to fifty for the purpose of steamrolling technology for the city alongside the researchers and trying to decipher and uncurse our magic books? We would be insanely smart. could probably alter implants for better function at that level.
>>41919308I am up for int 50.Shouldn't be bad. and should help with learning new spells.Implant to 5 will leave us at 46 exp.How do you guys feel about scavenger to 7leaves us at 18.going to be damn useful once we start looting this lab.
>>41919455Fine with that, ifWe also pump polyglot to five for more magic deciphering.
>>41919498Or computers, i forgot to say. Both poly and computers are good choices
>>41919498sounds good. 4 ->5 puts us at 3 exp left over.Apophis, any specific bonus this will give? like +1/2 per rank to deciphering tombs/rest of rank stuff.
>>41919040So, how easy was it for us in life to fit in with the scientists we were inevitably sent to spy on?
>>41919579I give 10% per rank of ployglot reduction to deciphering things. It was hidden before, but at rank 5 it would have been visible on the char sheet.

>>41919643how about our lizard. did he gain a shit ton of exp too?
>>41919124ItemsYou only have two books and the lamp by my count of unidentified items, the AI uses its massive database to aid your attempts to identify the items.> Djinn Lamp – Power emanations indicate the recent formation of a djinn, no known specimens of this level of development are documented. Rubbing the lamp is known to awaken sleeping djinn. The AI requests you do so while completely surrounded by sensors so data can be collected on this unusual specimen.> Grimoire – An advanced book of magics. It contains █ █ █ █ power (7), Corrosion aura (9), Multi-cast, Infinite mind>Lich’s spellbook – Unable to penetrate the book with scans. The AI suggest you improve your mental fortitude before attempting to access the magic within.
>>41919757Allow ourselves to be scanned while we learn multicast And infinite mind, in case we can someday help others gain acess to it too
>>41919757>>41919754Can we have our lizard. stats put into intelligence. Making him better in combat.
On right, and lets also learn Cure, Ice blast, elemental Burst, since thats what we can learn up to int fifty.We might not be able to cast all of them, but some areas are magic rich enough for that not to matter.
>>41919040I have a question, was the experimental long range teleporter also teleported to our goblin city, or will we have to build another one if we want to? I assume that the AI would be more than happy to assist in building another if we want to.
Lets ask the ai about where the probes in the box are sending signals too, and what they do exactly. If the function seems useful, lets have them send info only to the ai, and hang them increasingly lower and not in a lead box down the voidhole, for explorative purposes.
Rolled 89, 15, 65, 28, 70, 82, 61, 1, 74, 80, 45, 92 = 702 (12d100)In case you need any in the future, have a few d100sMaybe we should reverse engineer the taser at some pointWe also should ask for help opening the magic sealed letter
>>41920098The AI brought it with you, it brought everything in ring four down except the other teleporter.>>41920175They send data that the scan back to ring five. They are able to link together to increase their scanning ability. The AI has disabled them and will be able to redirect their data streams to send data to it instead.I'll write out magic and update the sheets next.
>>41920175Or we could lower a goblin down, with the sensors, to have different subjective reference points. We know the goblins won't lie to us. So, although the goblin might not be able to perceive as much as the sensors, atleast we will have a simple laygobs explanation of what's down there.
>>41920333Sure, this works too. Just make sure the goblin is willing.
>>41919978Abilities and spellsMulticast: Rank 1This ability allows any spell cast to have a 5% per rank chance of being replicated for no additional cost. Higher ranks may have additional effects.Infinite mind: Rank MAXThis ability unshackles the mind, allowing for the usage of all spells that a caster may know. It also opens you to the influence of unimaginable things - this alteration of perspective grants a bonus of +10 mana. Cure: Cost 3 manaThis spell heals a single target for 1/10 the caster’s ki. It also heals one random negative status effect.Ice blast: Cost 7This spell causes a massive explosion of ice and frigid cold. It has the potential to cause frostbite or even instant freezing. It does cold damage equal to ¼ to ½ the caster’s ki.Elemental Burst: Cost 20 mana This spell causes a massive explosion of elemental energies. It automatically reacts to its targets to inflict maximum damage against their weakest resistance. It has the potential to cause a number of magical elementally themed aliments. It does damage equal to ½ to ¾ the caster’s ki.
>>41920773HOLY TOLEDO!Any abnormalities on the scans when we learned that?
>>41920838The AI scanned the books and then you during the learning of all the spells and abilities at your request. With sufficient materials the AI will be able basically print out new copies of them. The main requirement is large amounts of mana as well as paper and ink. The mana reactors which you fixed the designs on can supply the needed magical power. The AI theorizes that one reactor at full output per spell level will be needed to create a copy of a spell. The multicast ability is equal to level 8 and infinite mind ability is equal to level ███. The AI apologizes for loss of accuracy regarding infinite mind, total over all complexity of the ability is unknowable.
>>41921017What about implant rank 5?don't see it on there.
>>41921017Begin making and distributing copies of Bless and Magic Arrow to those who dont know itAn entire army that knows bless...we will become an army of holy warriors!Are we capable enough yet to try to transfer our knowledge into book form, so that we can teach the other level one spells we know?
>>41921017>>41920773Oh shit, does this mean we can see the amygdalas?!In all seriousness, though, are we going to be able to see "cosmic others" and other such weird things?
>>41920773With infinite mind, lets look at the grimoire again. > █ █ █ █ power (7)
>>41921017>>41920773I'm guessing if we personally get lowered into the bottomless hole, we'll be able to hear the thoughts of whatever horror is imprisoned down there. Or we can get the effects of being high, just by relaxing our mind, who knows?
Nice catch and paranoid anons, it probably all means nothing.Spell learned Void power: Cost 15 manaBecome infused with the power of the endless void, or is it lack of power. All status effects and injuries are healed as you become one with the void. All damage is doubled and retyped to void. This effect lasts three turns.
>>41921182>all we hear when lowered into the void is a cacophony of cries, screams, and pleading, all in a language which gives us an aneurism.Don't fuck with crazy shit from beyond, bro!
>>41921336>implying the void isnt filled with the sweet sound of complete entropy - true silence, unburdened by any form of matter, energy, or existence
I think that I got everything updated - if I missed a thing just let me know.
>>41921729ReputationGoblin scav has same descrip as previous rank i think, dunno if intentionalSocial linksLootNot sure of anything else.Did it teleport any facilities down here at all? Whole rooms, walls and everything?
>>41921898Loot and information regarding the teleported facilities will be ready for next thread. There is a lot to work through, with the AI teleporting everything there is unfortunately less loot at first but you get all the machinery, computers, the main reactor and a bunch of other goodies that will likely just get ignored by everyone. It’ll all be there in the background improving the goblins and the city though.
>>41920264I didn’t miss this one I swear.The letter’s seal only detects it being broken if you open it. Honestly I expected someone to want to open the letter a while ago.
>>41922023Nice.Now, for the last bit...we should have the ai calculate the most efficient and optimal way to build up our goblin society, with a focus on defending from future attacks from the...whatever those guys called themselves. Ring five, i guess.Pretty much put the ai in charge of city development.Can we xray the letter?
>>41922172The AI informs you that the letter contains a non-harmful magical trigger, likely communication of some kind, and a credit stick. At current market rates 1 credit is worth 10,000 of the gold coins you collect.
>>41922277Open the letter.
>>41922299You break the seal on the letter, open it and read the contents.“ Joey, you two timing sonuvabitchI hope you rot down thereCredits are worthless in the pit JoeyHope it was worth it-Don Viennetta”The AI scans the contents of the credit stick and informs you that it holds ten thousand credits.
>>41922656Ahah, fuck. Where did we find this letter again? I bet joey is one of our skeletons now.Maybe see if theres any database info on don Vienetta and any affiliates by joey.
>>41922710The AI searchers its database for Don Viennetta and Joey. There is a large number of slummers that use the name Joey, most of them have connections to Don Viennetta. Don Viennetta is a contact for Research ring three he supplies ‘materials’ for them through his Casino which encompasses a repaired area in the lowest reaches of the Rustbelt. The ‘materials’ are likely to be code for human trafficking. Don Viennetta is known to have anyone who mentions ice cream brutally murdered.
>>41922854Im gonna say icecream to him if we ever meetAnyways fun game gm! See you next thread!
>>41922920Did you ice anyone, with some cream?
I wonder if our current armor includes a helmet.
>>41923261Just have one fuckhuge skeleton made by the skeletons climbing onto and holding onto each other.Then, if it gets damaged, all the skeletons jump off of each other and rain down upon the enemy!
Mage squads with magic rifles are the future of our civilization.
I bet void power makes us like this.
>>41923145Man, you're an ice cold mother-fucker, but I'm gonna cream you.
