The ground quakes as the enormous creature shifts from its position and rears up fully to prepare to attack. It flexes its four clawed hands as it flaps its wings; the resulting tempest that is unleashed temporarily scatters the swarm of small flying beasts.For a moment you wonder just how could a creature this size completely hide without the AI’s scans picking it up. The massive beast is currently content to stay on the ground which is probably for the best since you can’t fly. While you are busy facing off against a giant winged daemon creature thing the AI sends you a compiled list of completed research items.>Gryphon feather – With your assistance the AI has determined how the feather detected magical items and has integrated the effect into all scanners. Unfortunately the feather was destroyed in the process of researching.>‘Advanced’ scanners – With the integration of the magic detection process the AI has a spent time to update its algorithms used in scanning. Overall performance of all scanners is increased. Linking scanning probes now provides increased benefits as well.>Fractured crystals – With the advancement from the scanning technology determining the exact crystalline structure that allowed spells to be stored was rather quick and easy. The fractured crystals are highly unstable and capable of exploding should too much magical energy be contained within them. However the AI has designed a process to create new structurally sound spell storage crystals. Currently higher level spells require larger crystals to contain them. >Cleaner mana extraction – Using your observations that a giant crab was able to crush and consume a cleaner the AI has designed a system of hydraulic presses that will be able to crush a cleaner into a thick paste. The paste will then be able to be used in potion crafting.(1/3)
(2/3)>Advanced vehicles – The AI has successful modified additional vehicular designs for use. Walker, hover and Heli designs are now available. >Rebreathers – By creating an external housing that fits snugly around the mouth and nose rebreathers effectively replace the need to utilize the superior implant for use in water. In addition a rebreather will filter harmful compounds from the air. >Spell printing – With spare processing time the AI took the initiative to continue its study of magic. It is now possible to create copies of spells that the AI knows. A vast amount of magical energy is needed for the AI to use this process. New buildings available> Spell crystal manufactory> Heli pad> Cleaner mana extraction facilityCurrently available suggested research items> Djinn lamp – The AI has no records of a specimen this young it is possible that new information regarding the formation of these beings may be revealed. Standard practice is to rub the lamp to awaken the Djinn which binds it in servitude.> Shrieking blaster – At the cost of possibly destroying the gun it will be possible to replicate the mana conversion process, the sonic element, and possibly the multi shot modification. > Lich's crystal - At the cost of possibly destroying the crystal more information of how the reanimation magic works can be extracted. Possible applications include a new spell being created, undead control and mass reanimation.> Hypercube – Another object that the AI has no records of. Spatial manipulation experiments have always failed in the past causing a reliance on magical means to achieve such functions. > Other – At request the AI will attempt to accommodate your wishes and will designate research to fulfill whatever you currently need.
(3/3)With the research settled you now need to determine how you want to fight this giant creature and fast. The AI’s scans indicate that the beast is highly magical in nature so you can expect magical attacks as well as needing to deal with the increasing swarm of small flying creatures that constantly drop from the massive giant.Add in spells you would like to use if necessary> Close distance and attack the giant> Keep distance and attack the giant> Try to clear the increasing swarm> Send the goblins back to get heavy support> Have the goblins begin ranged support> OtherWelcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTGPastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20QuestNew research dump: http://pastebin.com/8xSNSgxc

> Research added.You knew you kept this laptop around for something and call for the AI to send in whatever heavy equipment is ready. Once again pulling on and compressing the mana in the air around you to form a bank of fog you notice something new, sparks of electricity race about inside the dense fog. It is probably a good thing that you left a clear area for yourself and the goblins to stage attacks from. > AI reinforcements 3/3 turns till arrival.Then you organize the goblins to begin firing at the giant creature’s wings, hopefully they can damage them enough to prevent it from ever flying. Some of the more adventurous goblins begin to plant magic seeds to provide an extra distraction against the swarm of flying beasts. The plan actually works too; the beasts who are angered by the electricity in the fog dive down towards the plants’ movement and attack them. The plants of course happily attack the flying beasts in their mindless attempt to feast on flesh. Then you decide to ignite your gun to shoot the giant beast’s eyes, before the gun changed to have lines of pulsing orange power but now it also has gently glowing yellow lines.(1/2)
(2/2)>24 vs middle dc 22You unleash the power of your gun and shoot the giant beast, a burst of three cackling and flaming balls of electricity and fire fly directly at the monster. A few of the smaller flying beasts get in the way of your shot, two beasts explode when they are hit but thankfully the last shot makes it though and strikes the giant creature in the face. It responds by firing a giant laser from its mouth which cuts through the fog and hits directly in the middle of your formation scattering the goblins.>Your status - 11/11 hp, 27/27 mana, 8/14 external mana> Lizard status – 26/26> Ignite weapon - 2/3 turns remain> Electro fog- 2/3 turns remain – hindering and damaging the flying beasts>Goblin status – scattered and mostly dead but attempting to provide ranged support>Enemy status – One giant beast with a bloodied face and an uncountable swarm of flying beasts> Monstrous plants are mindlessly attacking the swarm of flying beasts> Close distance and attack the giant> Keep distance and attack the giant> Try to clear the increasing swarm> Have the goblins fall back> Have the goblins continue ranged support> Other

With the goblins all nearly being killed from the giant creature’s laser attack they dive into hiding spot and continue take potshots at anything they can, exploding bolts rain through the air thinning out the swarm of flying beasts. The electricity from the fog has begun to kill the flying beasts that dive though it, leaving an increasing pile of corpses much to the delight of the plants.> AI reinforcements 2/3 turns till arrival.You urge the lizard forward through the fog to get close to the monster, if you can poison it then hopefully the creature will die faster. As you get closer however the giant beast howls and angrily flaps its wings unleashing a torrent of wind which completely blows the fog away.> 27 vs middle DC 26The goblins are blown out of their hiding places by the force of the wind and are scattered about. Even the giant lizard is forced to stop advancing as it tries to hunker down to prevent the wind from blowing it away. So you are forced to close the distance alone you dodge a few of the giant beast’s swipes and plunge your poison dagger into it. The area around the cut turns a sickly black as scales fall off and turn into dead flying beasts.>Your status - 11/11 hp, 27/27 mana, 8/14 external mana> Lizard status – 26/26 digging a burrow to protect from the wind.> Ignite weapon - 1/3 turns remain>Goblin status –blown away and trying to recover>Enemy status – One poisoned? giant beast with a bloodied face and a smaller but still uncountable swarm of flying beasts> Monstrous plants are mindlessly consuming corpses of flying beasts> Attack the giant> Shoot the giant> Try to clear the increasing swarm> Other

The goblins are able to fight off the swarm of flying beasts enough to regroup and being shooting once again. With the glut of food the monstrous plants have begun to multiply slowing increasing their number as they keep consuming the flying beasts.> AI reinforcements 1/3 turns till arrival.Since the beast is having trouble swiping at you it instead uses your own plan against you and fires its mouth laser right at you again.> 22There is no time to dodge the attack so you’ll have to endure it, thankfully there is a tingle as your shield’s defensive magic works to protect you. The laser slices though the garbage and ground around you as your flesh boils. Once the laser clears you focus mana into the giant beast then twist it to damage the beast poisoning it from the inside out. Then you open fire into the blackened cut releasing a cacophonic eruption of sound as the insides of the beast are blasted apart.>Your status - 9/11 hp, 24/27 mana, 0/14 external mana> Lizard status – 32/32 waiting in its hole> Electric poison - 9/10 turns remain>Goblin status –trying to provide ranged support>Enemy status – One poisoned giant beast with a bloodied face and a gaping wound in its torso and an increasing uncountable swarm of flying beasts> Monstrous plants are multiplying as the consume more fleshThe monstrous beast tries to flap its wings to begin to fly, but the constant shock from the poison coursing through its body is currently preventing it from taking flight.> Attack the giant> Shoot the giant> Try to clear the increasing swarm> OtherForgot the lizard’s hp increased

The goblins continue to fire into the swarm of flying creatures, small explosions dropping bodies all over the battle field. The monstrous plants are enjoying their free buffet as they continue to consume flesh and multiply. The massive creature is fully focused on you right now so you run around the beast to draw its attention away from the direction that the reinforcements should be arriving from. The beast claws and swipes at you trying to kill or catch you.> 24You successfully avoid the giant creature’s four grasping hands and make your way behind the beast. It responds by digging its claws into the ground and pulling the rest of its body from the ground. Rather than legs the beast’s body ends with a long finned tail. It keeps trying to fight your poison and take flight but it only manages to twist around to face you.A hail of explosions heralds the arrival of the AI’s reinforcements. Several armored vehicles move to surround the goblins on the ground to provide cover from the flying creature swarm and the plants. Larger tanks open fire aiming for the giant beast’s wings while two hurriedly constructed helicopters unleash swarms of rockets to break the swarm of flying beasts.>Your status - 11/11 hp, 24/27 mana, 0/14 external mana> Lizard status – 32/32 waiting in its hole> Electric poison - 8/10 turns remain> Reinforcement status –Several vehicles are providing ranged support focused on the swarm and the giant beast’s wings.>Enemy status – One poisoned giant beast with a bloodied face, tattered wings and a gaping wound in its torso and an uncountable swarm of flying beasts> Monstrous plants are multiplying as they consume more flesh> Attack the giant> Shoot the giant> Climb the giant> Other

You ignore your reinforcements with your intent to finish the fight once and for all. You rush straight towards the massive beast intent to climb up the beast to the hole in its torso. It will only be a short climb because thankfully the beast has a tail rather than legs so it is keeping its torso rather close to the ground. The beast suddenly launches lances of fire from the tips of its claws.> 25But you are only hit by one of the flaming blasts and with the help of your shield you simply shrug the blow off and continue as if nothing happened. You set your knives alight and stab them into the giant beast and climb your way up to the gaping hole. The beast slams its hands into you and you feel your bones crack twice, once as the break and again as they reset. It doesn’t stop you though as you reach the hole and cut your way into the beast’s body. You slash your sword as best you can into the flesh and organs surrounding you trying to cripple the beast or at least cause it to bleed to death. You are rather thankful for the implant that makes it so you don’t need to breathe right now because there is no air inside the beast , just an ever increasing flood of blood.>Your status - 8/11 hp, 20/27 mana, ???/14 external mana> Lizard status – ???> Electric poison - 7/10 turns remain> Ignite weapon – 5/6 turns remain> Reinforcement status –???> Enemy status – ???> Monstrous plants - ???> Fight gravity and cut your way up> Slice your way to the rhythmic pulsing> Unload with your gun> Other

Magical beasts work pretty much the same as animals in the living world so you decide to follow the pulsing and hope you find a heart to cut out. There is the fait sound of explosions coming from outside the body of the beast so hopefully that is the AI opening fire and not the sound of the giant beast destroying everything.> double 26 vs highest dc 27 pass> AwarenessYou relies that the beast’s blood is being pumped by ten different hearts, but they are all being regulated by some other organ, its faint pulse is nearly concealed by the electricity from your poison spell.You hack, slash and tear your way deeper into the beast trying to follow whatever it is that is controlling the giant creature’s hearts. Seemingly miles of blood and gore pass by as you work your way to your target. Eventually you find a glowing orb about the size of your fist, your intimate connection to life itself makes you feel as though this orb is very important to the beast.>Your status - 11/11 hp, 20/27 mana, ???/14 external mana> Lizard status – ???> Electric poison - 7/10 turns remain> Ignite weapon – 5/6 turns remain> Reinforcement status –???> Enemy status – ???> Monstrous plants - ???> Its full of life, consume the orb> Destroy the orb> Collect the orb> Other

Next research: Full analysis of Reggie. By which I mean, have a shitload of scanners around, and allow for us to be put on an operating table with healers on standby while we get opened up and have our interior fleshy bits examined. Maybe actually place a scanner inside to constantly monitor our status and progress.Then, use Void Power so that we can research the void a bit, see if we can chart anything strange about our insides before they seal up from using the ability. Then study the exterior, I suppose, as much as we can.It's a good opportunity for Pain Tolerance training, too, I suppose.

You nearly fall face first out of the crumbling corpse, but you use your secret agent skills to turn it into a tactical roll so it looks like you meant to do that. Then you run to the side of the battle field and take aim so you will not hit any of your allies. Then you channel all the mana you possibly can into your throat and then suddenly release it all in a single massive burst.> 24Your flesh burns as the laser is freed from your body, your eyes boil from the intense heat and light. A massive swath of the battle field is instantly vaporized. While the steam clears the AI and giant lizard mop up the few remaining plants. Looking around at the bodies of the flying creatures you see them all crumbling to ash and scattering away into nothingness. “You have not exhibited this ability before now.” The robotic voice of the AI chimes out. “Either you have been holding back or even more alarming you are developing new abilities at an abnormal rate.”“I highly recommend gathering data on these phenomena tied to you.” The AI continues. “With the improved scanners perhaps some answers can be gathered.

>>41977710This is correct you failed the DC to fully hear the whispering voices.
>>41977768Alright.Got it.Just thought my phone was being a cunt.
First things first you loot the battlefield and find-> One very small deck of cards, five very large pairs of sky blue boots, twenty-one large tigereye gems, fifteen yew bows, fifty pairs of dark aqua pants, eleven small skulls, nineteen sea green flags, one chisel, one rat figurine, eleven horns, five very small jerkins, one very large vase, eleven lead cutlasses, one pair of bright green pants, *nineteen huge vials filled with a dark grey substance*, nine suits of silver chainmail, *four books of prayers*, one sapphire globe, one large maple harp, one sapphire, one very small vase, one bronze cauldron, eighteen copper rapiers, one very small broom , seven statues, forty hawk feathers and one hematite gem.Then you head back to the goblin city and agree to the AI’s request to study you.The room you enter is filled with scanners with a single operating table in the center.“Please begin by performing matter materialization.” The AI’s voice drones.So you close your eyes and try to will something into existence, you think about how much better it would be to loot some guns or some advanced technology for once. At the last moment your mind wanders and you think about genetic modification. Then you feel a pop as something new begins to exist.You open your eyes to find a small cylindrical fleshy mass which sits on the operating table. It slowly waves tentacles around looking to grasp something.“Congratulations you are a father.” The AI says. “You have somehow created a new life form.”“Scans indicate that it is parasitic in nature, it consumes mana to do something. More research should be done before trying to use it.” The AI continues as robotic limbs scoop up the little thing. ”Next we shall attempt to dissect you, your natural regeneration should render the attempt harmless.”> Get dissected> Skip to something else>Test out that thing anyways > Ask some questions> Other
>>41977819Damn, no eggs. I guess those flying creatures are extinct now, unless we somehow will an egg into existence.>Get dissected
writing for getting cut upFeel free to add in questions, they AI can try to answer things while you are on the table.
>>41978005To help with the AI's full analysis, we should probably tell it a bit about our life, and most importantly, the last moments before our death and what occurred afterwards up until activating the AI.
You lie down on the table to allow the AI to dissect you while you are still alive and completely unsedated.“First a sedative will be administered.” The AI thankfully states. The needle snaps uselessly against your skin.“Attempting oral sedation.” The AI passes a small tablet to you which you swallow. You start to pass the time by talking about your life; perhaps the AI will find some clue in your past. You quickly gloss over your abusive childhood and how it led into you becoming a secret agent.“Interesting, however, scans indicate the sedation has failed.” The AI says after some time passes. “Continuing to dissection regardless.”Robotic limbs bring an assortment of tools to begin to cut into your body: bone saws, scalpels, circular saws and even a blow torch. You ask the AI is this really is a ‘dissection’ or if it is torture.“Of course not, please continue to distract yourself by talking.” The AI responds. So you keep talking about your secret agent past, the missions, the women, the exotic locations, the guns, the explosives, the booze and of course the women. Meanwhile the AI is trying its best to break your skin, every tool fails to penetrate your skin. It was a little bit strange when the tools start to stab at your eyes though. “Dissection has failed” The AI says as it hands you a probe. “Please swallow the probe. Unless you would prefer a suppository.” So you manage to swallow the probe.“Good now please utilize the spell ████power.” The AI states. “You mean ‘void’ power?” You ask the AI.“There are no records of such a spell in existence. Please use the unknown spell ████ power.” The AI responds.> Use void power> Skip to something else> Ask some questions> Other

“What about the Sickeater dagger?” you ask the AI.“While you were talking about your exploits during your time as a secret agent in the living world it was already tested.” The AI states as a robotic limb draws your attention to the sizzling hole in the operating table next to you. “Now please activate the spell.”The robotic limbs set probes all around your body and move equipment all about the room to attempt to maximize effectiveness of the scans taken.So you flood your body with mana, and then realign the mana to fill your body with the power of the void.> 28 pass“Do you find the current world rotten?” a voice whispers to you.“Victory determines righteousness not motivations or goals.”“Wealth and power beyond measure.”“Well done so far Reginald.”“More is required.”“Get your revenge, destroy this prison.”> Try to communicate> Try to meditate and find a better voice in your head> Try to will something into existence now> End the spell> Other Thought I posted this already sorry

>>41979099Yeah, fuck these voices, let's get a better one.
After we're done with the voices maybe ask the AI if it wants us to preform self-surgery, cast ignite weapon and slice ourselves open?
Alright, pretty decisive this time.2d10+9 to find a better voice, with blackjack and hookers.

>>41979399I was the 16 guy, I was trying for double 21s
>>41979438Well, you got a twenty then. Pretty good, but unless you draw an ace, you're out of luck.
“Piss off!” You yell at the annoying voice in your head.“I will not be denied you fool!” The voice yells back.“Freedom or puppetry both follow my will.”Enough of this nonsense you ignore the voice and try to meditate. Pretty much any other voice in your head would be better than this one.> BlackjackYou manage to shut the annoying voice out and try to find a better one to talk to you. All you find is peaceful nothingness, now it is as though you are truly one with the void. No distractions or annoying voices.So you open your eyes to see what the AI is doing.The scanners have overloaded, short circuited machinery is scattered about and some have even managed to explode. Turns out using highly reactive crystals in machines isn’t such a good idea.“Hello, AI are you still there?” You ask while looking over the damage.“So you are still alive?” The AI’s voice crackles through damaged speakers. “Moments after the spell was activated an energy spike caused severe scanner failure.”“The spike originated from the goblin warren and was centered upon your body.” The AI continues. “Are there any negative effects?”“No everything is fine. What about the probe you made me swallow?” You ask the AI.“It is fully operational and is transmitting data.” The AI responds. “Just as your presence is unable to be confirmed the probe is not communicating.”> Wait what, you just contradicted yourself> Ask the AI more questions> Try to will something into existence now> End the spell> Other

“You just contradicted yourself, you said the scanner is working then that it isn’t.” You tell the AI.“There is no contradiction the probe is fully functional and transmitting data. No records of the probe sending data exist, perhaps you are misremembering what I have said?” The AI states.“No it seems more like the void is causing there is be a blank spot in your data that by its nature you are unable to notice existing.” You tell the AI.“Since there are no such records I am unable to confirm your theory. I shall perform a full system diagnostics sweep.” The AI tells you.With that more or less settled you decide to see what is the worst that could happen if you will something to exist while using this void power spell. The AI will probably receive data on it still, even though you are not being noticed your actions are. You close your eyes and focus, focus harder and think about something safe. Safe like a goblin.> 29 no cosmic horrors todayThere is a pop and you open your eyes to see a goblin standing there.“yous needs a thing chief?” It asks.It’s a perfectly normal goblin so you have it go get some others to help clean this mess up.“Anything strange about the goblin?” You ask the AI.“Other than the fact that it didn’t exist before, no.” The AI responds.With the goblins helping the AI quickly restores the condition of the examination room.“Tests may now conclude, no further data can be obtained.” The AI drones on. “That is if you are even still in this room.”> Ask the AI more questions> Try to cut yourself open> End the spell, try to cut yourself open> Finish the tests> Other

I wonder if that goblin is the one that disappeared into the void earlier? That would be top tier. We'll keep it in mind for questioning later.
>>41980299Too bad it didn't seem to be a proto-goblin. That would have been neat.

>>41980397No its just to see how much you can get done while your body is regenerating.
You start to try and cut yourself open, scalpels fail, bone daggers fail, a blow torch fails, the Sickeater dagger fails, it seems like you can’t even hurt yourself. In fact your connection to life makes you feel like trying to hurt yourself would be healing your injuries if you had any.So you end the spell.“Ah, there you are.” The AI says as soon as the spell fades. “You wish to continue testing then?”“Yes I’ll try to cut myself open, you’ll still get data that way.” You respond.You repeat the process that you did before while under the influence of the spell, as similarly nothing is able to break your skin. “It seems that even you are unable to break your defenses.” The AI states.The only thing you have not tried is your ghostly sword, so you try that next. And it slices into your skin with a tingle of electricity, success at last!“Interesting that magic sword has cut you, is that perhaps a function of its simi-corporal nature?” The AI observes.>24Well you have something that works so you cut into your stomach and working quickly remove the probe so it doesn’t need to find another way out.“Almost no usable data has been obtained. This concludes the tests now. In the future should scanning technology improve we will resume matter materialization testing.” The AI says and then leaves you to your business.> Upgrade goblin city (How? timeskip)> Launch invasion of research rings (Which level?

>>41981071Oioi!I wanted a babeh!The best babehs are babehs that should not be!I'm only moderately drunk.
Alright writing for the lamp. Is there anything special you want to prepare for this test? Other than the paranoia room.
>>41981191Hmmm...Maybe prepare a fine meal to be placed on a table within it, and a few silver flowers in a vase.
>>41981233He's right, this time, we will succeed in our attempts at James Bonding.
You contact the AI and tell it that you want to set up a containment area for scanning and testing of things like the djinn lamp. You with the goblins acting as a workforce a new highly reinforced building is created. You then have your skeletons prepare the finest meal of purple fruit and crab meat that they can with a lovely carnivorous plant side salad. Then you have it expertly arranged on a nice table with a vase of silver flowers to finish the look.With plenty of scanning equipment in place to collect data for the AI you bring the lamp into the center of the room.“Good now simply rub the lamp three times, in theory that should awaken the djinn.” The AI states.So you give it a shot and rub the lamp three times.Nothing happens.You try to rub the lamp again.This time the lamp begins to shake and a thick smoke fills the room. So you set it down on one side of the table and take your place on the other side.>awarenessThe smoke floats around careful to not touch anything but it is clearly examining everything in the room. It seems particularly interested in anything of a magical nature.“Hello?” You say carefully.The smoke swirls around vaguely trying to form shapes. It seems agitated, until the smoke extends out and touches the silver flowers. The flowers instantly tarnish and crumble away. Perhaps it needs more magical energy to fully manifest?> Try to feed it your mana> Bring more flowers> Bring crystal batteries> Bring a different magic item (which)> Other

“Bring some more flowers, some magic seeds, and the excess mana batteries the goblins looted.” You tell the AI.“I must warn you that the crystal batteries may become unstable during the djinn’s mana draining process.” The AI states.The smoke recoils towards the lamp and greatly condenses; it appears to be scanning the room trying to locate the source of the voice. So you make some soothing sounds and gestures to coax it back out.The AI is careful to maintain silence as it has the supplies you asked for delivered, the inner airlock is opened and you bring the stuff inside. You then offer the flowers to the smoke which quickly reaches out to them and the flowers once again tarnish and crumble at the touch of the smoke. After consuming the flowers the smoke has changed from pure white, to a faint greenish color.Next you offer the magic seeds to the smoke. It swirls about them, gently prodding and examining them as if it was slightly unsure but it still absorbs the magic from the seeds leaving behind husks that crumble into dust. The smoke now takes on a violet color as it begins to move about more energetically.Next your try the crystal batteries, they hold the equivalent of 5TW so surely one would provide enough energy. Upon presenting a battery to the smoke it curls around the surface of the battery, once again exploring the new object. Then the smoke thickens around the battery and the total volume of the smoke begins to rapidly increase until the battery crumbles into ash. The smoke then contracts while twisting around you to access the remaining batteries which it quickly absorbs the energy from leaving behind nothing more than a pile of ash. Now the smoke is a brilliant orange color and it floats about happily you think.(1/2)
(2/2)Well there is one last source of mana you decide, yourself. So you reach out and touch the smoke.> 27 vs upper dc 26The smoke moves closer to you and tries to pull mana from you but instead you pull the mana from the world around you and channel it into the smoke. It quivers and probes around a bit as if its aware of what you did but unable to comprehend how such a thing is possible, so it contents itself to keep pulling at your mana. The smoke is rather endearing with its mana draining antics at this point you to let it pull out your mana until you feel your reserves emptied out and then you cut it off so it doesn’t try to turn you into dust as well. It keeps pulling for a bit before puffing out a bit and contracting back into the lamp like it was pouting. Soon no more smoke is in the room.“It appears to have returned completely to the lamp. There are unusual power emanations coming from the lamp this could be an unknown formative stage.” The AI suddenly states.> Rub it now, bring more stuff to feed it> Wait for the lamp to finish then rub it> Other
>>41982185>> Wait for the lamp to finish then rub itDon't want to overfeed it, ya dig?Let's get a book or something while we wait.
>>41982185Bring in some Cleaner paste potion while we wait for it to finish, then rub it when it seems done.
>>41982255Sure we'll say that you got some of that while battling the giant flying beast.Do you want the refined potion version, or are you trying to use it as some kind of magical massage oil in your quest to seduce everything?
>>41982404Yes?A drink AND a massage? Genius.
>>41982404Yes.That is all, only yes.
I'm really sure what I expected in asking that.I'll write something up.
You decide to wait for whatever is happening to happen, you’re not sure if leaving could disrupt whatever is happening so you decide to just sit down and meditate to try to recover your mana. Before starting you ask for the AI to bring any cleaner paste that may have been collected and any potions that have been made using it. Once you have the new supplies you begin your meditation in earnest. After some time you feel like your reserves are restored. “The power emanations have subsided. Please attempt to awake the djinn once more.” The AI says.So you approach the table where the lamp sits and rub the lamp once more.Sparkling white smoke erupts forth from the lamp so you sit down at the table to wait for what happens. The smoke swirls about the opposing chair and slowly begins to clear revealing a very beautiful raven haired woman, who is also very naked.“What have you summoned me for master?” she playfully asks.“It appears the awakening process has been successful.” The AI states before you can respond.“Who was that? Reveal yourself!” The djinn says while looking around the room.“That was our AI, it is not here but can project its voice over the speakers.” You tell the djinn as you pour the improved mana potion into a pair of glasses. You pass one to the djinn and motion to eat, as you enjoy your meal you – > Ask her about herself> Get her clothing> Other
>>41982872Ask her if she would like clothing or any other amenities, Introduce yourself, then ask her about herself.

>>41983329>The goblin king!
>>41983405kek, I took it out of the pastebin because one of the traits I listed out while making the MC was that he didn't like his name. and then everyone just started rolling with being the goblin king.
>>41983484I thought you said he hated his -first- name? Like, he got pissed if someone actually did call him Reginald. Or am I getting it backwards?
>>41983329> Real name
>>41983329> Real Name
Well shit, if we are going to parade around as "the goblin king" we need an actual name to go with it.The title alone is nice, but it lacks the catchy ring to it!
As you enjoy your meal you notice that the djinn doesn’t care for the food but really enjoys the mana potion, having you refill her glass several times.“I am the goblin king.” You tell her. “Tell me about yourself, do you need clothing or anything else?”“I am yours master, but I am not a simple djinn. While my power is still developing due to your nurturing I am a marid, the grandest of my kind.” She says with her eyes sparkling.“Your desires are my desires master as I am your qarin.” She says next with a sly smile. “However if I may be so bold, this drink is lovely and there is that other thing.” She passes her empted glass to you once more and makes a square shape with her hands.“Oh! Right.” She makes a pouting face and waves her hand around a bit. A faint illusion of a mana battery appears and she radiates happiness. “These things are very nice if master wishes to spoil me.”You pour her the last of the mana potion and pass the glass back to her. The potion makers are probably going to hate her, a whole day’s work gone in mere minutes. You would offer her clothing, but she either doesn’t mind or is purposely playing with you, not to say that you are not enjoying her jiggling about.“Do you have a name?” you ask.“It is whatever you decide master.” She replies after draining the glass once more.> Write-in a name> Leave it for later> [ End ]And that’s the end for today.

>>41984317I'm cool with this.
>>41984317Eh, sure.But we do need to get our physical stats way up, too.Antimagic is apparently a thing (not, totally not, Apop said it was certainly 100% not a thing, nope.) it would be nice to have something other than magic to fall back on. And the mouth laser is nice, but punchan is the most reliable weapon we have, especially with regen, we can punch so hard we break every bone in our arm and it'll heal back (in theory, I don't know is Reggie can actually punch that hard because of his DR, but a "normal" person could!).
>>41984060>>41984096What about the name "Gareth"? I think that's more fitting of a Goblin King.Are we looking into creating a bog of eternal strench? We can always call the bottomless hole an oubliette!

Item IDs>Grey substance – A corrupted mana potion. It damages mana by 3 point when consumed.>Books of prayers – Each book contains magical scripture from an unknown source. The four books are labeled Abominations, Ablutions, Apostates, and Anathema.>>41985667No you can add more if you want to, current research is only the prototype taser, and a focus on repairing broken equipment.
>>41985773Research Iron Rimmed Mirrors, Hypercube, and Backpack together. I have a feeling that all of their properties are complimentary, and understanding some parts of an item could help with understanding other parts of a different item. Besides, we aren't really using any of them right now.
>>41985830added to research
>>41985773Ablutions seems like the most harmless...Maybe we should read it?What does the AI think about the books?
>>41986048Genie too, for that matter.Tell her not to absorb them, tho.
>>41986048The AI thinks that you should research them so that their effects can be replicated in the future. It also determines that reading any of the books would be ill advised since you are not a follower of the religion that the books are from.>>41986106She thinks that they are supposed to hurt bad guys and that the Apostates book doesn’t like her.
>>41986163Does...does religion really matter? I mean, none of the religions mentioned an afterlife with technology like this, freakin ai's, genies, a DMV office, a pit of garbage - you get the point. Do people even practice religion in this afterlife?
>>41986224Well one of the researchers did mention the bible, so it’s possible.
