After dinner you broke out your ‘massage oil’ to use on the Djinn, she needed some persuading to not drink it too, and then let’s just say that things became magical. You’ve never had a woman turn red and literally burst into flames before, so you are thankful that the goblins taught your how to resist fire.“I see your activities have ceased.” The AI says with an undercurrent of petulance. ”Research reports have been compiled for your review.”Completed Research> Djinn lamp – Personal memo from the AI: “The Djinn has successfully been awakened and it has taken the form of a woman and claims to be the strongest of her kind. She has bonded to you and will attempt to serve you, however due to her level of power she is no longer bound to its lamp and may freely decide to ignore orders. Suggest high priority research to contain the unruly creature.”>Grey substance – The potion making squads have taken the mana poison and with the assistance of the poison crafting squads have discovered how to replicate the effect of a mana draining poison. Effectiveness of goblins against magical creatures is increased.>Parasite – The AI has taken special interest in the small fleshy tube that you created. The parasite is actually forms something more like a symbiotic relationship. Attaching it to your arm will allow it to consume your mana and in exchange it will pressurize water to incredibly high levels allowing you to use the parasite as a gun that expels a powerful water jet. Current technology is unable to replicate the parasite so it remains unique at this time.>Collapsible Taser Prototype IV – The design of the taser includes slight improvements to electrical transmission efficiency. While the study of the device has rendered it inoperable the improvements will allow you to transmit power to the old ruins or the lich’s tomb. In addition the AI has upgraded itself to utilize the technology for self defense. (1/3)
(2/3)>Repair broken equipment – Through use of the AI’s database you have been able to repair three morphic battle cannons and fifteen laser generators. Currently only the AI can use the battle cannons so they have been installed to help defend the city. The laser generators will be used to speed construction of robots. The adaptive robot has also been fully repaired it can either be deployed with the AI piloting it or it can now be safely cannibalized to extract the reactor. With time and resources all the things that have been repaired can now be manufactured.New city defenses available> Morphic cannon arrayCurrent ongoing researchIron Rimmed Mirrors – The mirrors have a permanent portal linking the pair. The enchantment is highly complex and will require more time to fully understand.Hypercube – Careful examinations have confirmed that this device is entirely non-magical. The potential expansion of knowledge regarding the nature of reality that this device may unveil excite the AI.Backpack – Despite the plain looking nature of the item it is actually a significantly powerful magical item. Its Spartan design and sturdy construction indicate to the AI that it is a mass produced item created for use in a combat role.Currently available suggested research items> Djinn containment – The Djinn is a powerful being made form pure mana. Modifications of the crystal containment arrays used in the mana reactors may prove to create a viable means of containment.> 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.
(3/3)> Prayer books – The AI is actually rather excited about these books. It is apparently nearly unheard of for religious items from alternate afterlife realms to be found. It is unknown if the nature of them relying on unavailable energies render them inert normally or if the CEO prevents their entry into this realm. The AI is confident that careful examination could allow for the replication of the Abominations, Ablutions, Apostates and Anathema effects. The Djinn thinks that special care should be taken with the book labeled Apostates.> Other – At request the AI will attempt to accommodate your wishes and will designate research to fulfill whatever you currently need.With the research handled for the time being you pull yourself from the Djinn’s grasp and prepare to start the day.

>>42009050Can we research more stable containment for our djinn while also showing her around the ruins?
>>42009050Show Djinn (and Lizzie!) the city, the ruins, and the tomb so they can learn to freely travel between all of them if they want. On the way to those places, take a load of stuff so that the AI can exert influence in those locations, even if it's just keeping an eye on them and telling goblins what to do.In the meanwhile, let's ask exactly what Djinn is capable of - can she actually grant wishes, like legends say?
>>42009154Being the most powerful of her kind I presume it depends on how much she likes us. How much our will aligns with hers.
>>42009142Vote for however much stuff you want to, I'll fit in anything that works together.>>42009154Yes she can grant wishes. But what she can do is limited by her power. So right now don't expect too much from her.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>42009142Roll for research
>>42009290We don't usually roll for research unless we PERSONALLY are seeing to it. Which could be done, but I'd prefer to keep setting stuff up, myself.As for a name, how about Ayla?
Rolled 16, 3 = 19 (2d20)I'd like to commit a significant portion of the AI to hyoercude researchIt may also be valuable to let our djinn interact with some of our items. I bet she knows plenty about how the mirrors work. And the combo of the parasite and her magics might be intense.
>>42009309I dig it
>>42009343I'll agree to having Ayla check out the items. Outside insight is valuable.
> Added Djinn containment to research, you monsterOk looks like we roughly want to tour around a bit and personally help with research. 2d10+13 for research.

Double 22s nice, name a particular research thing you want to work on for an extra boost for that.Feel free to argue about her name for a while, I'll be running for at least seven more hours unless something comes up.
>>42009571Hypercube is probably goodIf you mean an ADDITIONAL one, then the backpack is probably a good one to pair with it.
>>42009589sorry about the slowness, needed to do something real quick. But yes I mean one thing extra.
If we could research the prayer books and find out about the Apostates, perhaps the djinn could make a teeny pocket dimension we could summon them in without leading some other universes top tier demons into our house.
Hypercube trumps prayer books though since the books are so volatile.
>>42009925Pocket dimensions are a bit beyond her right now.But to make up for my terminal slowness I’ll give you a free hint about the book, Apostates inflicts mass harm to intelligent beings that don’t follow the set of book’s religion, it is particularly harmful if you follow an opposing religion.
>>42010016Hurray! We've already won half the battle.
You gently wake the Djinn up, Ayla could be a good name for her you think. “mmmmm’tired.” She grumbles. “Then you’ll miss out on exploring the city.” You tell her and she instantly jumps up.“Master is taking me out on a date already!” She cheers and floats around happily.“Are you sure you don’t want clothing?” You ask her.“What’s wrong, don’t you like my body master?” She teases while expanding her assets.You ignore her bait and go outside to the city. “Hey wait! Mean, master is mean.” She pouts at you while linking arms.So you stroll through the city showing her the buildings you’ve had built while she floats on a cloud beside you. Eventually you make your way to the research center and bring her to meet the AI, the monitor room floods with blue light as the AI’s avatar is displayed.“Greetings ‘goblin king’ I hope you have brought the djinn for further study.” The AI states.“You are not alive. You are a strange thing.” The djinn says as she pokes at the AI’s monitor.“You are a living mass of magical energy, I am a living mass of information. We are both ‘alive’ in a similar fashion. Further study of the processes that make you exist could reveal important information.” The AI responds.“That sounds boring! Master lets go do fun things.” The djinn says.They just met and they already don’t like each other, isn’t that just great you think.“How about we go help study other things, you could show off how smart you are.” You say as you guide the djinn away from the AI’s monitor.You make your way to the research areas and are met with slack jawed stares, or rather the naked djiinn is. Showing some tact for once she forms clothes for herself, a pair of nerdy glasses and a rather short lab coat. The introductions almost go smoothly before the djinn interrupts them. (1/2)
(2/2)“Oh! They are the same person, does master like that?” She asks as she morphs into a clone of the blonde twins.Fortunately this breaks the ice rather than angering the twins and allows you to transition to researching.You have the djinn look at some of your magical items taking care to not let her just eat their magic. She doesn’t tell you much other than how she thinks they will taste. The research into the mirrors is delayed when she decides to have fun teleporting herself with them, at least you now know they will not hurt living creatures that go through them. While she is distracted with the mirrors you help the AI look into the hypercube.> double 22Careful disassembly of parts of the box leads to the box accidently breaking, the internal dimensions of the box suddenly expand to the full size turning the box inside out. You are not entirely sure what you did to it when the AI chimes in.“Fascinating the scanners caught the dimensional expansion, with time I will be able to calculate how to reverse the process. All attempts to gather information thus far have been met with failure, even by accident you have been most helpful in studying the cube.”Then trying to ignore the complaints of the researchers as the djinn uses the mirrors unleash pranks, you start to disassemble the magic backpack. With the enchanted interior fully removed the other researchers take over.“You don’t need to bother with that any longer.” The AI states. “With my improved sensors and the interior removed finial study of the weight reduction effect should be finished shortly.”“Master they took the fun mirror!”> Awareness“Why don’t you just ask your sister to help you get it back then?” You ask.The other two twins, triplets?, come over.“What no fair!” The djinn pouts. “How did you notice?”> Continue the tour> Take the twins with you> Stay and test the parasite> Other
>>42010293If we stay and study the parasite maybe all of this "research" will count as training ourselves how to study better.>study parasite, bring Ayla
>>42010293>Continue the tour and take the twins along, because she seems to like their company and vise versa.The parasite can wait for another day for study.
Testing shouldn’t take too long so we will just do all the things.Who wants to get a parasite?> Yourself> The twins> Djinn parasite combo> Other
>>42010559Ask the Djinn if she would mind it, and if she thinks she could remove it after it attaches. If she minds, then just leave it for now.
>>42010559Attach ourselves to the parasite to show her how it works. Ask her if there is any similar way she can attach herself to us. (implied sexual undertones but seeking strategic information not a quickie 4 some)Then ask if we can attach it to her to see what happens
Rolled 2 (1d2)1 for >>420105952 for >>42010674
>>42011013Too late, I gave up and wrote for both sortaBefore you go you did want to test that strange parasite you created somehow. So you take your trio of blondes over to the containment tank that the AI had it put into.“Who wants to try it out?” You ask the girls as you pick the fleshy mass up by the tubular end. The two non-djinn girls go pale.“Ugh, master that thing is gross, where did you find it?” You djinn asks.“I made it.” You tell her.“Well if master made it…” She relents reluctantly.You attach the parasite to the end of her arm, or at least try to. It can’t attach itself to her.“It can’t attach to me!” She exclaims triumphantly. “Uh, but I can still give it a little mana if you want to see what it does.”“No its fine, I’ll try it out myself.” You tell her. As you place your hand into the writhing mass of tentacles. The creature pokes at your skin trying to break it, but eventually settles on wrapping itself around your hand up to the wrist. You fell your mana drain away as it connects to you.> Maximum mana reduced by 4The creature gurgles happily as pressure begins to build. You take aim at the wall and unleash the pressure when it reaches it maximum level. A blade of water cleanly slices though the stone leaving a gouge several inches deep.> New ability gainedSymbiosis: Rank 1This ability allows for the use of parasitic and symbiotic organisms in a manner similar to implants. You may use one organism for each rank in this ability. Higher ranks may have additional effects.The girls seem impressed but also still a bit grossed out by the creature, so you carefully detach it from your hand and put it back in its containment tank.> Maximum mana increased by 4You then say your goodbyes and depart the research center and take your blonde trio to the mess hall. After picking up a lunch to go, you grab the giant lizard to ride for the rest of the tour.(1/2)
(2/2)“Ohohoho, so master likes these kind of things.” The djinn says while flicking out a forked tongue.The djinn has fun chatting with Elizabeth and Katherine as you ride over to the restored ruins. Then she starts narrating to the girls.“The tribe came to the ruins to show them to master and he took some goblins inside. There were three paths so they split up!”“I don’t remember telling you this.” You probe.“I can read minds!” She proudly beams.Your tour of the ruins continues as she greatly embellishes everything that happened and the twins are thoroughly impressed by the time you break for lunch.“So did it all really happen like that?” Katherine asks.“Not really, she exaggerated greatly.” You tell her.“Nuh-uh, master really did jump on a spider and chop its brain out.” You djinn hastily replies. “Next lets go to the tomb and I’ll tell you about the evil skeletons!”> Escape back to the safety of city before things get worse> Continue to the tomb> Tell her to tone it down a bit> Other
>>42011068"Isn't the truth impressive enough, when it comes to me? I mean, it really doesn't need embellishment, considering all the things that I actually have done."Down into the tomb of despair we go
>>42011116Hi, it's your tour guide Min Lin D'jinn, and welcome to Tomb Time.
"Isn't the truth impressive enough, when it comes to me? I mean, it really doesn't need embellishment, considering all the things that I actually have done." You say.“No, master’s version would be like this, ‘entered tomb, bypassed traps, killed all monsters, goblin losses regrettable but within acceptable margins’, see boring.” She says while miming quotes. “If you told someone about the flying beasts all you would say is that they are dead now.”You take a moment to let the girls chatter and make sure the goblins are incorporating electricity, computers and scanners into the ruins alright on their own. Unfortunately under the AI’s expert guidance all work is proceeding smoothly so you are forced to continue the tour to the tomb.Another lizard ride later you arrive at the Lich’s tomb, and the djinn takes over.“This first level was boring, the undead weak and low in number.” She says waving the twins to continue on. “The few that dared to show their skulls were quickly felled by master while the goblins were useless some even getting trapped in nets.”“Then there was a strange knocking over here.” She rushes to the north side of the first room on the second floor and knocks on the wall. “The mystery of knocking was never found!” “Then master noticed that there were no bad guys at all!” She continues as you walk over to the trapped area, which she of course triggers causing the twins to jump. “So master found the lich’s spell book and jumped though the lightning and stole it.” “Then master killed the bad skeletons and the goblins didn’t even help at all.” She quickly finishes as you enter the third floor.“That’s it? No talking up the action?” You ask her.“Its evil down here, makes me feel all strange.” She tells you.> Go back to the city and tour more there> Finish up and do something else> Other
Tell the AI to have a few goblins tear down that knocking wall to search for what was doing it before.Meanwhile, go tour the old Ruins, and then finish up the tour in the city.
>>42011581If it's possible to approach the knocking wall/puzzle again then let's do that. If AI could start working on learning how the shrieking blaster works. That'd be great.
The mysterious knocking was just the lich doing stuff on the level below its not a secret puzzle or something that you missed.
>>42011637I kind of want to delay tearing our blaster apart. It's op as fuck right now.
>>42011808Cool. But we should figure out some better armorments for our gobbies so they can be more effective. Maybe we'll roll so well on reassembly that we don't break it /s
Writing for finishing up the tour in the city.>>42011862You could upgrade to guns or something, you have the tech for that now. Which reminds me that I need to update the tribes vehicles.
>>42011896Yeah, we should start training tactial groups so we can have actual backup. Create a small quantity of the best guns we can. Rather than arming everyone establish a system for identifying the most gifted fighters and sending them in groups to preform easyish missions.They'll likely be too inept to help when things get tought so we won't lean on them until our tech can give them a better edge. But at least they'll have team tactics and aiming down.
The djinn getting weirded out by the lich’s ritual chamber also seems to be making the twins uncomfortable so you usher them all out of the tomb and back to the lizard.“Well other than the tomb this has been interesting.” Says Katherine as she climbs behind you.“Yes, who knew that goblins were smart enough to remember their own history.” Elizabeth says while climbing into your lap, err, in front of you.“Hey, that’s my spot!” The djinn says.“You can float.” The sisters laugh as they monopolize you on the way back to the city.On lizard back the tour of the city goes by fast, it does take a while to pull the drooling djinn away from the mana reactor. If a close eye isn’t kept on her she’ll probably drain the reactor dry. You let the lizard go back to begging for meat at the mess hall and finish up your day by the lake side having the skeletons deliver dinner to you. You take the time to finally savor your after dinner treat of three blondes, with the trio’s help you only manage to get a few hours of sleep. More work needs to be done though, they have been quiet lately but who knows what surprises the researchers from above have in store for you next.> Upgrade goblin city (How? timeskip)> Launch invasion of research rings (Which level? How many squads?)> Ask people questions (who)> Train yourself (In what)> Train Djinn (how)> Train lizard (how)> Train goblins (how)> Other
Train goblins to be more compent in group tactics and warfare as quickly as possible so we can hit those research rings.
Begin upgrading the goblin city with rockets, mounted turrets, AA-defenses, the works. Have the goblins start switching over to the vastly superior firearms, grenade launchers, and rocket launchers we can produce.Meanwhile, we should instruct the Djinn to try as best as she can to utilize the magic that lays around areas instead of an item's magic or her own. The lizard should be trained, daily, on the agility course - with increasing challenges added, with better rewards for finishing the challenges for incentive. We don't necessarily have to do this ourselves, it should be easy to hand the task off.We personally should train our Intelligence by pouring through all the information reserves that the AI has stored, trying to retain the information, and having the AI quiz us routinely on it.

Leaving behind the trio of tangled bodies you head to the learning center. “AI can you have the goblins learn leadership, warfare, tactics and some sort of safety handling for firearms and explosives?” You ask the AI, and several nearby unused monitors change to display the AI’s avatar.“Of course, it will be a simple change to have the program also include those lessons. Their current level of intelligence should facilitate proper learning on such topics.” The AI replies.“Good that should make physically drilling it into them easier later. Now let’s see if I can’t learn anything more myself.”>29Languages, history, mathematics and sciences all go by rather easily but then the program starts throwing out law, timed drafting and technological design problems. You get past those too rather quickly. Then the program shifts to magical theory, advanced physics and mathematics, philosophy, and then culminates in increasingly alien game theory, you stop at level 400k.“It is most impressive to watch the program attempt to adapt to challenge you.” The AI states when you finish. “Your calculation speed is good for an organic.”“Yea well now I have a headache from doing all that.” You reply with a yawn.“Master!~ There you are, you left us all alone.” The djinn floats into the room and starts pulling your arm. “Come on lets go have fun!”“AI could you also begin to prepare fire arms and explosives for both the goblins and defense of the city?” You ask the AI. “I have a bit more training to get done.”“Of course, the technological improvement will vastly increase effectiveness.” The AI responds.(1/2)
>>42013129Jesus, fuck, genie is insatiable!I feel like we're going to get free endurance points just for dealing with her!SHIT!
(2/2)You let the djinn pull you outside, then turn the tables on her and pull her along with you as you go set up more training. You instruct the goblins to create a firing range for weapons training, and designate a large area outside the walls for explosives training. Then you have the skeletons put to work tirelessly training the animals, including your giant lizard mount, on the agility course which you have expanded and make several modular areas so that new challenges can quickly be put into place.“Master this is not fun at all.” The djinn complains.“Its training, it’s not supposed to be fun.” You tell her. “And now it’s your turn. You should learn how to manipulate the mana around us.”You sit down with her and try to explain what you are doing while you manipulate the universe’s mana.“It’s impossible master!” She decides after several hours of practice.> Have her keep trying while you train yourself (In what)> Train in something else (in what)> She seems to get bored easily, take a walk to clear the mind> Otherwhoops was updating pastebins

>>42013581You don’t take a trio of blonde women to meet a bunch of old goblins, instant date ruining.So they know of her but not exactly introduced. And as for magic you learned all they can teach.
We need to name the AI and the djinn. Any suggestions?
>>42013878I left the names open, but for the djinn it seems like no one has a suggestion other than Ayla.Feel free to name the AI whatever you want.
>>42013920Aylas good, But SHODAN, nah
I actually like that the AI has gone unnamed. Seems authentic
>>42013957Although AL would be sortof funny in the sense that it would be written Al which is hard to differentiate from AI

>>42013990>>42014003Ha, I like em both. QM can choose if either tickles his fancy too.
"If it's impossible, then how am I doing it? You can do anything you set your mind to, even without wish-granting powers. All it takes is dedication, willpower, and training to refine your efforts. If you succeed at learning this, I'll even grant YOU a wish, as far as I'm capable of doing it." You say, and instantly regret.“Master grant ME a wish?” she says as a disturbing grin creeps across her face.“Uh, sure just learn how to do it properly.” You say as you cast a simple spell from the mana around you. She explodes into a cloud of smoke, you’re not sure if she got too excited or if she’s just spreading out to try and feel the mana better. Probably better to leave her at it so you go grab the giant lizard and get to training on the agility course.> double 24The skeletons prepare the course for lizards and line them up side by side you and your lizard. With a gunshot the race begins. The first set of obstacles are simple walls to climb over and the lizards manage with no problem, but the second set is a series of progressively larger holes to clear. Including your mount only a few lizards clear the obstacle, the others fall and have to climb up and down the holes to continue. Then there is a set of twisting bridges, with your guidance your mount makes a clear lead on this obstacle. With other lizards hot on your tail you reach the final obstacle, a large cylinder with footholds. Climbing it would normally be easy for the lizards, but the skeletons have spread the anti-mobility gel all over the cylinder making gripping it impossible.At your urging though the lizard digs in grasping at whatever it can with its claws, using brute strength to overcome the lack of friction. Your mount is the first and only successful lizard to pass the new course so the skeletons reward it by cleaning off the slippery gel and treating it to a feast of crab meat.(1/2)
(2/2)You doubt that the lizard will be up for another go on the new most difficult course anytime soon so you have the skeletons reset it for you to run alone. There are lot more jumps and climbs forcing you to use as much strength and agility as you have and more pushing your limits further than ever. Every time you make it to the end the AI tells the skeletons to change something to make it harder.This continues for some time until the djinn interrupts you.“Master! You’re all sweaty, let’s go take a bath!”“Did you figure out how to use the mana around us yet?” You ask her.“Uh, sure yes, yes! Watch.” She focuses for a moment and then a burst of magic arrows are released a fair bit away.> Awareness You don’t feel the mana move at all, you do notice that the ground is slightly differently colored where the arrows came from though.“Ok, see I did it now time for my wish.” She tries to distract you.“It would be, if you didn’t cheat. Shape shifting to cast spells from unexpected angles is a good trick, you should keep practicing.” You tell her.“What how did you! I mean, as expected of master to notice my trick.” She pouts. “But honestly master it’s impossible for me.”> Try guiding her in learning again> Teach her something different> Give her a reward anyways> That’s enough training for today> Other

“Just feel what I am doing.” You tell her as you slowly move the mana around.“I can feel it master, but really I can’t do it.” She says. “I can’t even drain the mana away.”“Just keep trying, with practice I’m sure you can do it.” You encourage her.> 25 vs dc 30 failureYou try to help teach her for what seems like hours but it seems like she really just can’t manipulate mana from outside herself other than to absorb it, but even that doesn’t help her copy your unusual ability. When she gives up again you instead help her practice her shape shifting trick from before, it’s not exactly what you wanted but it could prove to be useful.“I feel all stretched out, please can we stop master.” She begs. ”I just don’t have as much energy as you.”“Alright, why don’t we go for a walk instead.” You relent finally.You take her to the living sliver flower farms, a sparkling sea of slowly rustling silver.“It’s beautiful master.” She says with shining eyes. “They taste wonderful too.”(1/2)
(2/2)You motion for a skeleton worker to bring you one of the fully grown flowers, which you give to your djinn.“Thank you.” She gives you hug and clutches the flower to her chest.“I have something else for you too.” You tell her as one of the skeletons draws near with a crystal mana battery. These skeletons are pretty good, even responding to the slightest thoughts that you have.“Ooh! You shouldn’t have master.” She takes the battery and begins the drain the mana from it.“You know, if you don’t drain it to ash it can be filled up again.” You tell her.“It’s easier to just take it all.” She says, but this time she leaves enough mana so it doesn’t crumble away.“You are trying your best, so that is enough.” And for the first time you call her by her name –> Ayla> Write-in something different> [ End ]And that’s the end for today. Next thread Sunday 12 EST.Feel free to suggest implants and/or research if you want either.I’ll stick around for questions/comments/criticism/spending exp.>You finished a thread, thanks for playing +10 exp> Researched the things +5 Intelligence> Seducer +???> Level 400k +10 exp +10 Intelligence> Lizard training +5 stat points> Training +3 Dexterity +3 strength +3hp +10 stat points> More djinn training +10 exp>Current total exp: 30>Current total stat points: 15
>>42015378Ayla is goodNice stat gains, I'll make up a psread as usual.Let's begin researching...implanting a symbiotic being/construct. If we can implant the parasitic watergun, that'd be beast.
Rolled 4, 4, 7, 3, 5, 6, 10, 5, 10, 8, 5, 7 = 74 (12d10)magic as per usualOkay, how about int to 80 (WE'RE SO CLOSE TO 100 IN SOMETHING DAWG)Dex to twentySave the last point because fuck it why notlemme think for a bit on exp spending
>>42015479You don’t actually have anything left to ID I believe. I’d suggest as usual not messing with the Lich’s book but it’s there if you want to play with it.
>>42015532Well, we can always try to get better and better at identifying the nature and structure of the curses on in. It might help for trying to break or ward them later.
Life connection to fiveDraining touch to twoA bit of exp left over but whatevs
>>42015665Looks good to me, everybody's sheets updated.New ability unlock via interaction of draining touch and life connectionHealing touch: Rank 1This ability allows you to infuse your life into any being that you touch. You may heal 1 hp for every 5 of your own that you sacrifice. Higher ranks may have additional effects.
We need to MAX regen at some point so it'll give us sweet sweet extra stuff.
Begin researching the Madblade in a way that won't deconstruct it. If it channels magic, that could be highly valuable to learn about. Wands and staffs could be made, or other channeller weapons.
>>42016335Unfortunately researching items may destroy them, you can try and wait until your tech improves if you are really worried about it.
>>42016402How mad would gobs be about deconstructing the madblade?
>>42016486Since the Madblade tribe is gone now, they won’t care. They are all Bonetooth tribe now.
>>42016520Oh, cool. Research away, then.
When do we fight it?
>>42016759What it? If you mean the research rings they’ve been failing all their rolls.
>>42016793When do we meet this angry fucker?
>>42016873When we become him, obviously
>>42016886I don't think we are -that- angry.Maybe this angry when we have reason to be.But not Asura-tier.Fuck son, calm down.
>>42016960True.I wonder if we can achieve something akin to Nirvana/buddhahood at some point, through extreme meditations and perfection of pretty much all our skills and stats.
I’d recommend more HP before fighting strong angry things, I know flying beast boss didn’t seem like much because you ate its soul. But it did hit you with I think it was a 24 damage laser and its melee attack was even stronger.>>42017003I'd say that's not in my plans right now, but you've managed to derail anything I set up for short term plans via write-in and good dice luck. So I won't exclude the possibility.
>>42017041How great of a plan was burrowing into it?
>>42017127Honestly it was probably the best possible action in retrospect, poison was a good idea too but trying to take it down by attrition would have likely killed all your forces. I’m not even kidding: it could have killed you in two good hits. The lizard was hiding in its hole for good reason. It was only the second oldest and strongest giant monster too.
>>42017193Is this a good size comparison for the Flyer Beast to Reggie?Or is this too big a difference?Also, is there any way to tap into -any- other afterlife's "power" so to speak?Like, can we get hellfire? Can we take lightning from Zeus, Thor, or Raiden?
>>42017360More like 1/2 that size but yes the crab, tiger and lizard bosses are all going to be huge like that.As for other places to get power maybe Ayla can help. Her power isn't fully developed but its on her sheet.
>>42017417Fighting PowerHealth: 3/3Mana: 210/210>210W-What?Is that normal!?FUCK!Our spells are still stronger pound for pound, though. HAH!But that's neat.We should go fuck with Shaka Zulu in the African afterlife. He'd probably be a nice dude to learn how to spear, from.
>>42017483actually with 90 ki hers are significantly stronger if they increase in damage based on ki score
>>42017535Whoops! Mixed up Ki and Will.Wellll shit.At least we have sweet abs, though. All natural abs.Wonder how Apop would deal with historical figures in their respective afterlives.
>>42017483haha, glad to see someone noticed that. She could kill you instantly with all that mana. She has MAX in multicast too, so she hits twice with all spells at a minimum.>>42017558The ones who are with you, likely mind wiped. Other afterlives may be nicer.
>>42017848>The ones who are with you, likely mind wiped. Other afterlives may be nicer.I wonder who went with us, and where we went to.This requires further study>Compensating...
>>42017936WE Went to corporate hell, think about it
>>42018419Yeah but we got there from a not!shinigami from Bleach.It's kind of fucking weird.
>>42018510Maybe they are just retrievals, and dump em in a sorting area
>>42018552Maybe, but the shinigami are apparently kinda exclusive to Japan and the whole Bleachverse thing.Why one would work for a "spirit shipping company" is beyond me.We'll just have to find him and punch him in the nads til he tells us.
>>42018625He was hunting that manticore, we died, and he threw us to the right place?
>>42018722He was in Africa.Fighting a European folklore monster,Now tell me how any of that makes sense!It's a set up!
>>42018944The Soul Society is canonically always looking to replace casualties.He ain't looking for a job, he would already have one.The whole thing is fishy.I don't trust any of it.
>>42019021maybe the lines are a bit blurred here?
If you really want to know Just kidding, you’ll find out later.
>>42019162u lil shitI love you>>42019080Apparently so. I just would rather not assume, ya dig?
>>42019268around 12 EST Sunday
