>Still most of the way through a turn.You knew that it was going to be impossible to avoid detection. But it would also be suicidal to just bring humans into your place. Well, right now, at least. And you had fuzzy creatures with voices that noone would refuse. So you did the most sensible thing and you sent them out.The results were quite surprising.The White Siren encountered a bunch of highschool teens. It was found both cute and awesome by that group. It seemed it's white fluffy fur and pink eyes were what was considered cute, while the albino-ness was quite interesting.The Red Siren still provoked fear, due to its blood-red color. Upon touching the still developing mind of it, you found two seemingly conflicting desires. Part of the Red Siren wanted to be feared, while the other was disgusted at its grotesqueness, wanting to maintain a bit of grace.The Green Siren, when left to its own devices, mostly wandered in sunny areas. It was mostly ignored, due to its slow pace making it look like a plant. Although at some point it lost its balance when going downhill, curling up into a ball to protect damage.The Black Siren did its best to not attract attention to itself, moving through shadow, its dark coloration helping it blend it. Although it spend its time mostly observing people, it did do its best to lure in some people nearby and attempt communication. Sadly, not many were up for going into dark alleys.(Cont.)
The Brown Siren was, at a distance, confused with particularly large Tarantulas, so people who were not fans of such creatures tended to back away or try their best to throw what they could at it. Fortunately, there were some people who liked arachnids. However, these people took their time trying to determine the Siren's features and drawing comparison to various species of spiders, so there was less communication, but more learning for the young Siren. So it was fruitful.The Grey Siren achieved a measure of success with approaching humans. Being mistaken for a cat at first glance, sometimes as a statue if it remained non mobile, albeit a very weird one, it managed to maintain limited conversations with what seemed to be a young adult in a gray-red hoodie. He expressed interest in the Grey Siren and that it could find him the next day in the same place. He said his name was Alex.>You unlocked [SPECIALIZATION] for the Sextet of Sirens. It is possible to allow each other to pursue a different form and a job, based on their experiences in interaction with humans. It has its drawbacks and bonuses, will you do it?>You achieved peaceful contact with limited amount of humans, along with a potential ally. What are his goals, you are not sure.
>>42031318>Yes>Alex is always a bad name he will be detrimental.

------------------AND CHOOSE TWO SPECIALIZATION ACTIONS:[A2] Black Siren: It seems to favor stealth, but it also gained knowledge of human mannerisms. Maybe we can make something work...[B2] Brown Siren: All the information about arachnides, comparison with them and even mentions of insects seemed to speak to Brown Siren. Though it might also want protection...[C2] Green Siren: Now this siren just keeps rolling, though it also looks with more interest at plants.X[D2]X Grey Siren: It talked to Alex, but mostly with your help. It's not enough, not yet. But it hints that it has potential.[E2] Red Siren: It liked being feared, and yet it detests being such grotesque creature, desiring grace. A form that lures in others...[F2] White Siren: The opinion of highschool group affected it. It is torn between being cute and being "awesome" as the kids called it.X[G2]X Sentient Strangler: It is just a hand. It is not particularly smart and it lacks experience... If only there was a way to fix it.-------I realized that the Cumulative bonus from many Morgan Freeman Sirens might have been too much. But I also realized, these are the elite units that we have. And each can be different.You will be given further choice upon selecting one to specialize.
Also, Upgrading of Elite Units in the means of specialization gives you higher likelihood of jury-rigging bodytech that you haven't mastered yet.
And that's all, you guys can do the voting now.
>>42031462Just pick letters? works for meC body tech work on creating something big and strong that can defend our NestD we still need to learn where we areA1E2 We could easily make this into a more humanoid form and use it to lure prey to us instead of having to hunt.C2 maybe we can learn how to feed off the sun and its energy better
>>42031820Clarifying:Bodytech vote means that we have mastered creation or adding certain parts when creating or modifying creatures. For example, if the Bodytech has Chlorophyll, we can do it no problem, roll would only mean the quality or such. But it is impossible for us to NOT HAVE that trait.And suggestions are appreciated for the stategy votes, but specialization branches off after choosing which to specialize, so wait with that.Now... WHERE THE HELL IS EVERYBODY!
>>42031216Just a question, but for once can we have a Flesh quest thats NOT doom and gloom? Can we have a brotier "the Thing" for once, with out mind raping or assimiliation or edge?
>>42031940That is actually the majority of flesh civs. they end up helping shit out from what I have seen.Murderhobo flesh civs i've only seen 1.5 of the other one currently going on and this one is the .5 as its not quite murderhobo level yet.to be fair I have only been in like 11 or so flesh quests though so could have just missed a huge boom of destroy every thing versions
>>42031940...That is what this quest is supposed to be.Check the suptg for Flesh Civilization Quest. We have Morgan Freeman-voiced meat spiders. And we robbed a pizzeria without killing anyone.Now, Seriously, anyone else besides Tansen is voting?This is particularly odd
>>42031940>>42032076So far we only killed... One person.And many cats and stuff.We can either kill people or try to diplomacy our way through or somtehing. I leave that up to you people. I will always give a good and evil options, more or less
>>42032078Here for you mate
>>42032111From a statistical perspective we have killed 50% of people we directly interacted withand 100% of animals
>>42032140We were found cute by highschool popoulace and spider enthusiasts held our brown siren. So our kill ratio is actually less.And now I shall sit back and await further votes.
>>42032169But we haven't directly interacted with them yet. only you have had any influence as you were writing the story.However I do doubt that even the people here will try anything in those situations as it would pretty much guarantee our death
>>42032210I see... What about other stuff?Sorry for it taking so long to just go into next turn. I want to make sure. Had an odd day.
>>42032270I suppose I would like to evolve the Green siren more, as i could see it protecting our nest
>>42032318...Could you, please, tell me what votes for each section you have? 2 for strategy, 1 for quest, 2 for specialization
>>42031462>[D] Landmark: Come to think of it, where the hell are we?

>Landmark>96 - Stupidly Successful!You realized one thing.You had no idea where the hell you even were. Your Sirens managed to get to a pizzeria, they found highschool students, a park. But that still didn't help. And so, you sent the Brown Siren out, to find any sign that might help you realize where you are. That is why you were controlling Brown directly, his mind taking a passanger seat but not feeling uncomfortable about it. He really trusted y-The wind smacked you in the face with some paper. Or rather, brown's face. Frustration building up, you took off the paper and was prepared to tear it, but then you realized something.It was a map. A map of the town you were in, it looked like. You seemed to be in... England. By finding a sign with the name of the street, after some time, you managed to properly triangulate your position.It seemed you were just a bit into the more run-down district of the town, far enough to have less people visit this place, but close enough so you can still reach the better places.The Brown Siren grinned, responding to your glee. You knew exactly where everything was. How convenient.>You got a [Map]. You can find yourself in the town, find shops carrying various supplies you might need, etc.>This means you could just ask me if there is a certain place nearby and most likely it will be there. Hurray!
>>42032918I hear England is a wonderful city.
>Bodytech> 22 - Not so go->DOUBLES!Now that you had a steady supply of biomass from the photosynthesizing patches of yourselves, you could use the bodies of those insects and such that you found for purposes of studying instead of just consuming them.And that is exactly what you did. You had to be delicate about it, but with as many bodies as you had, all that you needed was time.And the time was not wasted, no. You managed to uncover secrets of [Insect Wings], although trying to put them on a significantly larger creatures will probably not accomplish much. However, you also learned how to properly work in [Web-glands] and [Carapace] For your creatures, along with an [Exoskeleton]You are sure it will help you in the coming times.----------->>42032968I MEANT TO DELETE THE TOWN PART. Oh well, you guys are in London.It's just that I suck at both geography and was not there, but the place where I actually was would be a bad place to be. Just saying.
>More Past delving.Once again, you concentrated on your very self. You still had many questions, many unresolved concerns. You needed answers, but will you get them... We shall see.What is it you feel and see?[A] Trouble. That is all I can say I was at.[B] Childhood. The days of innocence and fun.[C] The... the reason for what I am now.

>>42033172>16 - Not so Good.You knew what your goal should be. To determine why you were not a human anymore but this odd flesh thing that you were now.You pushed in, your goal clear in your mind. From everywhere, random memories, floating thoughts, anything that could distract you, it was there. You tried, you really tried to do your best, to reach the goal, but you found yourself wondering:"Will Alex betray us?""What would my parents say if they saw me?""How long it has been between me being human and THIS?""Am I still a human?""What is it that I want?""I miss Paul from college...""I WANT A RAISE"Each thought battered down your mental defenses. You focused on what was important, your fleshyness. What you were now, that was the important thought. Then, it felt as if you hit a wall with your head. You tried to see what it was, but you couldn't understand it. The thing seemed to try to surround you, writhing and squirming constantly. You could feel its hunger, desire to become all.You ran, your mind trying to escape from the incomprehensible monster. It swung at you, multiple tentacles forming and managing to leave a few injuries on your form.----You found yourself catapulted into your physical form, breathing heavily. You don't know what that was, but you knew few things.One, you didn't want to meet it again.Two, your 'brain' felt as if it was on fire.You needed a few moments to calm yourself, and even then, you did not feel comfortable or at your mental peak.>You failed in pushing into your reason for being what you are, attracting attention of something that seemed related to it.>Your lack of focus will limit your strategy actions to one for the following turn.
>>42033316Your thing appeared just as I finished writing, due to damn auto-update timer. And also the fact that people did roll already and all... Sorry.
>Specialization.You had White jump into the pool of the Fleshy-Tub, letting its body dissolve to a limited extent as its consciousness trusted you with the next changes.Black was awaiting his turn, but you still have to make a choice for White... Adorable, yet Deceiving: After all, these highschool girls did say White was cute, so why not emphasize that? Awesome: Then again, would not being awesome or badass fit better? But can you achieve that with what you have?
>>42033599>Adorable, yet Deceiving: After all, these highschool girls did say White was cute, so why not emphasize that?
I propose we make more runts rather than risking our rare limited-edition six-of-a-kind godly-voiced sirens, now-in-different-flavours edition>>42033599 Adorabloodthirsty
>>42033634Which I guess is basically  I guess I vote for that
>1Adorable, you decided for the White Siren. It seemed content with your choice and inwardly, you smiled. It was good to have such children who listened to you.You reached deep into your human mind for inspiration, for a proper shape that would fit White's colors and yet still be considered cute and interesting. Ah, there it was... Something from the past, from the media you have watched when you were human..That would do nicely(Cont.)
>>42033383Is that the assimilator?
>>42033599>>42033726>Green Siren: 2wtf why did you put white in?
------In an hour or so, you sent the thought to the White Siren.'Rise.'It heard you, nodding in response before being surprised. It had a proper head now, and upon thinking about it, it seemed its brain was also bigger in size, allowing for higher cognitive functions. You shared a bit of your knowledge with it during the process of creation, to accomplish this.It slowly climbed onto the wall of the Flesh-Tub, proceeding to jump out of it before inspecting itself. It could see white fluffy tail, that was for sure. Trying its best to turn around to inspect rest of its body, it only saw something that resembled hair and white paws.Chuckling at its antics, you sent the White Siren what it looked like, the image having multiple points of view to let it know its body.It tilted its head at that and spoke.'Is that so, Master?' Its voice was not the voice of a God it had before, but it was what would be considered adorable. As it experimented with its body, it realized it did not need to open its mouth to make sounds, as its hair was actually hiding other orifices capable of producing sounds for this purpose.It nodded its head and sat near a wall, letting Black step forth. It jumped in, confident that your choice will be good. Stealth. That is what Black should have. You were sure. Subterfuge: It had studied human mannerisms on its own, it could possibly blend in, either as a human or something else.----->>42033899I derped. It's late and I didn't get much sleep. How about I have the white specialized as a bonus, then? Black and Green will still be specialized.Stats and such shall appear at the end of specialization process of the current chosen.
>>42033972>Stealth. That is what Black should have. You were sure.
>>42033972Stealth. gonna be our spy/assassinand meh mistakes happen. the bonus sounds great. sorry for seeming so hostile off the bat.
Subterfurge, we can go to more places and acquire more allies.
 Subterfuge: It had studied human mannerisms on its own, it could possibly blend in, either as a human or something else.
>>42033972> Subterfuge: It had studied human mannerisms on its own, it could possibly blend in, either as a human or something else.
>Stealth: 4>Subterfuge: 4>COMBOINGStealth, you decided, would be the best option for this one. And thus, Black was satisfied with your choice and let you do your magic. In a metaphorical sense.You knew a proper inspiration for it, at least in terms of design. This would require a lot more biomass to accomplish, but it might work.Human mannerisms would require human-like body. Being able to blend into shadows would require a dark body. These were your main thoughts.---------Soon, you sent the thought to Black."Rise.'And it did rise, though in a different manner than usually. It stood up, and noticed that the flesh-tub was only coming up to his new hips. He moved his forelimbs and noticed a hand on each, yet its forearms had odd bulges. It flicked its hands and above each hand, a black blade slid out. It retracted these blades and moved to touch its face. It could feel a hard, yet flexible surface, it could feel teeth. As it moved out of the tub, it could feel wet hair sticking to his back. Its hand encountered what seemed to be horns, although they turned out to be connected to the head in a manner resembling arms connected to the torso, allowing it to fold those in as to avoid sticking out too much. At its chest, it had a hollow cavity, currently closed with flaps of skin and strengthened with carapace.You sent it a piece of information. What you could salvage from the DNA of spiders, it given it the ability to inject venom through its fangs, but mostly through its arm-blades. It was not one of strongest, but it was still venom in its own right. And considering its source, it would potentially be fatal to a human... you thought.Sadly, you were incapable of the detail necessary to fabricate a human face, at least this time. You would have to improve your [APPEARANCE] Skills. But still, if its face was covered, or it visited shops that contained anime-related merchandise, it would blend in. And if not, then it could hide in shadows.
The last one to change, Green, stepped forward and into the pool, Black nodding at him.It was not sure about itself...[A] Beauty: It could be graceful, quite simple. Green is a nice color.[B] Plant: Although it could be more plant like, no?[C] Rolling and energy: Although being capable to have more energy from photosynthesis and consumption, along with its amazing rolling abilities, gave you an idea...
C: Rolling and Energy
>>42034522>>[B] Plant: Although it could be more plant like, no?
>>42034522special option availableC!!!!
>Rolling and energyAlthough upon thinking about it, the ability to roll on the ground properly might prove useful.So you thought, and so was your choice. And with it, the Green agreed.You gave it a bigger torso, yet not too much, along with better developed limbs. You really wanted to rely on the source material a lot, but you realized it might be a bit above you. However, you are nothing if not resourceful and you will still accomplish these two abilities.The fur on most of the body dissolved, leaving behind skin of green color, perfect for photosynthesis. In places where it remained, you hardened it, yet tried to maintain the ability to maintain a static charge, like people tended to have with longer or such hair. It will be a helpful focus.It was a bit hunched, allowing for improved rolling ability. Its face resembled a gorilla more than a human, similarly with its bigger arms. However, Green was smaller than what it should be like, and its hair remained of a green, although darker than rest of its body. You still were not satisfied, yet you lacked the proper [APPEARANCE] sculpting skills to achieve what you desired. But that could be improved upon later, if you wished such.Still, it was a good try, you thought in your mind, as you thought about what Green was supposed to look like.When on all fours, on the ground, Green would possibly reach a person's knees. Though it might actually be better this way, for now. Higher manueverability and a way to move through smaller passages.Oh, and it also could produce electricity. Just as planned.
>White's specialization completed. It lost its Morgan Freeman voice bonus, but retained the sound mimicry bonus. Any interaction that utilize its appearance or mention contracts of any sort also gain +20 bonus>Black's specialization completed. It's voice was altered in the process, losing the Morgan Freeman-ness. However, it gains +10 to blending in human society as it is, except for any convention and similar place, where it is +20. Similarly, If it is wearing trenchcoat and something to obscure its face even a bit, it can maintain its bonus in regular environment. It also gets +25 to stealth checks. It can also store small objects in its cavity and is a capable fighter, especially if utilizing sneak attacks(More so on that in a combat situation). Its venom is untested but potentially could eventually kill a person. Possibly.>Green's specialization... completed? It lost its Morgan Freeman voice bonus along with its vocal mimicry bonus. It can produce small amounts of electricity and is capable of high speed movement through rolling, although the desired appearance was not achieved fully. It can, to a limited degree, power electrical appliances. +15 for mistaking him as a weird child or person with a skin disease, or just covered in bodypaint. +10 to strength checks due to its strong arms.>NAME THESE GUYS.
