Although Queen Tslah has dismissed you the extent of how sick she was before being sealed away has intrigued you. You contemplate asking to draw samples to study, but if you fail to heal her you can always study the problem later.“It felt more like a serious disease than a poison,” you tell her, “I could try to heal you fully.”“Your senses must be sharp indeed,” Queen Tslah says, “as a child I was struck by a wasting sickness, some plot by one of my father’s rivals in their attempt to claim lordship no doubt.”“My father sought even the aid of Cathedral of Saints, they of course refused to help due to his past crimes,” she continues her story, “I have grown to accept the limitations the sickness has forced upon me.”“Would you not prefer to be cured of it though?”“I would not impose on you further, you have given me life.”You’ve already decided to heal her, so her feeble attempt to tell you no is ignored. You reach out with your aura and flood her body with healing energy once again. This time you can feel both the poisons and sickness eating away at her body, you a immensely thankful for your own regeneration and the goblins you rule over, no need to worry about backstabbing politics.The cocktail of poisons is easily purged from her system, but the disease is deeply rooted into her. It almost like a cancer slowly eating away at her nerves and growing along the spinal column, you do not know how long her has suffered from it but the disease has eaten its way all the way to the base of her skull, an impressive feat with her neck as long as it is. From her condition she must have only had a few more years of life left, but your healing eradicates the wasting sickness, not even a single trace of it nor the poisons remain when you finish.(1/4)
(2/4)You are light headed when you complete the treatment, it took a lot more of your health than expected to cure the illness. As you recover you can’t react as Queen Tslah rises with tears in her eyes and snakes her neck over your shoulder, pulling you into a hug.“I owe you even more than a life debt now human king of goblins, I will come to your aid should you ever need it.”>Demon Queen Tslah Goldeneyes last daughter of the endless tyrant Silvereyes can now be recruited as a companion.You part ways with the Queen giving her the space to explore the new limits of her body now that she is no longer struck with the illnesses plaguing her.A drone spins with slight annoyance as it directs you to where the freshly cloned creatures that you recovered from the stasis sphere are located. On the walk you catch up on the reports you missed while in the second circle of hell.Completed researchParasite modification – With the additional samples you’ve created it was possible to cross reference the genetics in order to create new forms of parasitic weapons. The researchers will slowly do this on their own even if not specifically directed to.Mana to matter conversion – Ayla’s way of creating objects from pure mana was detectible and understandable. The calculations required to actually create something useful are astoundingly difficult, even a slight variation in location or background mana can cause successful creations to fail. Hell invitations – Demon magic appears to work from a system of sacrificial offerings, the greater the loss the more potent the effect will be. Hestia’s ability to utilize this means of working magic is severely limited by her lack of blood, the usual conduit for hellish rituals.Mega flora – If the plants solely consume mana to grow then natural physical limitations are no longer necessary. Crops larger than entire houses are easily grown. There is some potential for a new method of construction with the breakthrough.
(3/4)>Mana supercapacitors – Combining the storage enchantment and the workings behind mana crystals new material designs have been completed. Combined with spatial compression all robots and vehicles now have effectively limitless sources of fuel. Mana supercapacitor implant now available.>Recharging enchantments - Depending on the power of the spell locked into a item for use between one and fifty charges have been typically displayed. With modifications to the enchantment process it is possible to have the items passively draw in a small amount of mana from their surroundings in a process similar to how the shrieking blaster drew mana from its wielder. X use enchantments will now slowly recover charges over time.>Adaptive robotics – The abilities of the adaptive robot are now applied to all robots, allowing them to change to best suit current conditions and maximize efficiency.>Demonic loyalty and patriotism programming – Rumors of the Demon queen’s presence has leaked to the general population. Rather than the expected unrest, the demons have become more docile. Anointed rule seems to be accepted so Hestia is spreading propaganda about your ownership of two hell deeds.>Silver flask –Your flask’s enchantment has been fully studied and immediately put to work replicating vast quantities of water. Hestia has destroyed your flask in the process, but created a new one for you featuring blue inlays and a carving of the goblin city. Liquid replication enchantment is now available.>Golden feathers – The feathers have been destroyed due to their cursed nature. Curse of greed is now available.Ongoing researchNoneSuggested topics to researchWind knivesEthereal lasersIllusionary field projectors Absorption fieldsDeflection fieldsPhoton distortionLich's crystalDragon scalesLiving structures

>>42352983>I want to see them first>Try to impress Hestia by guessing what the creatures are (1d10)I wonder if it's similar to that dead hell sorceror's shadow horse?
Too bad for being smart3d15+27 to guess correctly though if you want to.You only clue was the corpses had:>Singular horn>Feathers>Multiple horns>Sharp teeth>Long necks>Hot bones>Strange gooGetting a consensus on this choice will determine what the creatures are.How did I manage to type the H in horns as an s?
Rolled 9, 8, 7 + 27 = 51 (3d15 + 27)>>42353325>Strange gooThe weirdest one that I'd have no clue what was.
Rolled 4, 8, 11 + 27 = 50 (3d15 + 27)>>42353325Sounds like a pegasus
>>42353352"We’ve decided to become a paladin and protect every goblin’s smile."Kek
Rolled 8, 2, 10 + 27 = 47 (3d15 + 27)>>42353352Nightmares?
>>42353352Wait... Is it dinosaurs?
Some of these were not options? But I think you picked:>2 goo, 1 nightmares, 1 unicorn, 1 pegasus, 1 chimera, 1 dinosaurs.
>>42353533...Oh.OH.I totally misread that. Thought it was a list of the clues, and we were trying to figure out what it was.
>>42353533My goo vote was legitimately a goo vote, yeahI figured that it was a vote when I saw two conflicting amounts of horn(s) in the listing
You guys want to vote again for it then due to misunderstanding?I don't think the flavor will matter much but some are more useful or interesting than others.
>>42353626Yeah, sure. I think that'd make sense.
Alright then fair enough.Mystery creature vote:The corpses had one defining feature and it was - >Singular horn>Feathers>Multiple horns>Sharp teeth>Long necks>Hot bones>Strange goo
Tie, so...maybe...some weird combination?
>>42353747nah if it's a tie then op just need to roll a d2
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>42353747It could work, if people prefer a strange hybrid over the dice's choice?
>>42353788A feathered equine with really hot bones?Sure, I'm interested. Could end up more interesting than the pure version of either.
>>42353788Well, which would make the story even more interesting?
>>42353788yes, pheonix pls
>>42353807It could definitely be interesting.
Oh right I just did that in order of votes so they were1 hot bones2 feathers>>42353811Since with 1, the extinct write-in doesn't work out so well, a hybrid is interesting. People seem to like it so here we go hybrid creatures.
>>42353858So, phoenix, fire magic pegasus, something else?
>>42353897A bird that's on fire.
>51 so smartStrange, the creatures had both burning bones and feathers some sort of hybrid perhaps? From the feathers you would think they were similar to a pegasus and the heat is similar to that ghostly horse you found before.“There is a woman I would like to see the hybrid pegasus creatures with me,” you tell Hestia and her avatar distorts to show annoyance, “but you’ve already seen them haven’t you.”“How were you able to determine the species?” Hestia’s slight display of annoyance vanishes, “there should have been insufficient conflicting data.”"We've just revived a previously extinct species. I should see them alone first, and if things work out well, maybe we should celebrate it more publicly afterwards. You've done a fantastic thing here, Hestia. It's very impressive work to bring a species back to life." Hestia’s avatar turns a shade of purple, as you enter the room.When you enter the room it is completely empty, it is a enormous room with plenty of room for the creature to fly around in. Two pitch black horses emerge from nowhere gliding down through the air towards you, one is wispy and insubstantial the other is ablaze with fire.“You were correct in your guess, the species appears to be some sort of demonic pegasus hybrid,” Hestia says, “they appear to show high levels of sexual dimorphism, the male is the one on fire.”“They seem similar to the ghostly horse Ayla spotted in hell before.”“Scans indicate that they are indeed a hybrid creation relating to the nightmare you encountered.” The horses are interested in you but remain docile as Hestia previously told you.>Interact with them somehow>Bring everyone in to see them>Pick one as your familiar>Other

Right, familiar binding.They are not mindless so3d15+11 to force your will on the flaming one.

>>42354343I vote against bindingEspecially against their will
>>42354326>>42354375>>42354395Fair enough I guess?“What do they eat?” You ask Hestia.“They have shown a slight inclination to consume raw meat,” Hestia drones on, “their level of magical energy seems to increase from exposure to fire and they may prefer the environment of the sea of flames you inadvertently created.”"How intelligent do they seem to be? Beyond the obvious, any unusual qualities?"“I would refer that question to Ayla, her ability to sense the minds of others revealed the prideful nature of the gryphons,” Hestia deflects your question, “The male generates fire, as you saw when you entered they appear to be able to vanish when not observed and there have been reports from the researchers that the creatures have been appearing in their dreams.”These could be useful creatures but you are not entirely sure if they are the right choice for a familiar.>Bind it anyways>Don’t bind them>Bring in Ayla to try and read their minds>Bring everyone>Take them to the sea of fire>Leave them for now>Other
>>42354409>Bring in Ayla to try and read their minds
>>42354409>Don’t bind them>Take them to the sea of fire, with Ayla and a drone (to see how they interact with the hellfire, obviously). Maybe bring the Queen too - these things might have been around during her time, so she might know something about them. If nothing else, it's a different point of potential insight about them.

>>42354691I haven't gotten to them yet I only just caught up on the threads now just before I leave for work.
>>42354697Sure updated.“Let’s try taking them to the sea of fire everyone can look at them there, after Ayla comes to check on them,” you tell Hestia, “Perhaps Queen Tslah knows something about them as well.”“I will ask the Queen is she knows anything,” Hestia says.“Gah! I know, I know master wants to see me, but it’s weird when you do that,” Ayla’s voice comes through the other side of the door.“Oh master~ I’m here what do you need me for,” Ayla comes floating in to see what you wanted.She freezes when she sees the demon pegasi.“Are those?”“Yes they appear to be related to the creature you found before Ayla,” Hestia chimes in.“SO CUTE!” Ayla exclaims and slams into you with a hug, “can we keep them? The last one got away! We should keep them.”“Yes we are keeping them, but can you read their minds like the gryphons?” you ask her.“Hmm… They are all,” Ayla waves her hands around and makes water swish about, “the gryphons are concerned about their image, they have to look noble all the time. These horses though, they are not smart enough to talk to, they are just cold.”“Let’s take them outside then,” you say, “unless they try to escape it seems fine.”“Prepare for teleport,” Hestia states.“Wait noooo let us walk!” Ayla tries too late and the flash from the teleporter sends you outside the city gates with the demon pegasi. They snort in surprise at the flash but quickly find the sea of fire and plunge right into it without hesitation and the flames lick their bodies harmlessly.They seem to enjoy the hellfire and gallop around inside it.“Queen Tslah wishes to speak with you about the creatures,” Hestia tells you through a nearby drone, “I have directed her to come here.”“No teleport this time?” you ask.“The demons are, unaware of this capability,” Hestia replies, “so I would prefer to not reveal it yet.”>Wait for the Queen>Bring out everyone who wants to see>Ayla says they are not smart, bind one of them as a familiar>Other

You wait at sea of fire watching the demon pegasi trot and play around in the hellfire. You can tell that the only reason Ayla isn’t with them is because she would get burned out there.Soon enough Queen Tslah arrives with the former arena champion and a drone escort.“Gareth King of Goblins and Ayla Mistress of the Arena,” Tslah greets you and examines the pegasi, “I have heard that you have found unusual creatures but I was not expecting this, hellfire spread freely outside of hell is a rare thing.”“You know something about them then?” You ask her.“Before the devouring winds came my father owned the last known pair of these. There was a group of humans who tried for many years to acquire them for some holy war of theirs,” the Queen draws close to the hellfire, “they look just as I remember, many were insulted when they were eventually given to the humans. How did you come into possession of them?”By now the walls are filling with a diverse crowd, imps, goblins and humans all stand together watching the demon pegasi frolic in the hellfire, a trio of blonde women are coming out of the gate as well.“I found them sealed away in a tower in hell, whoever originally took them away has long since died, just how long ago were you sealed away for?”Tslah motions to her attendant, “I am not certain but from the stories that have been related to me it has been five hundred years.”You can feel the weight of curious and accusatory eyes upon you, the twins and Evangeline must have arrived.>Stick around and chat with everyone>Go back to hell>Check on the prisoners>Deal with a research ring>Assist research>Work on your project for Hestia>Other

>>42355894We should probably wait for our flagship suit to be completed before hitting anything else. I feel like it's going to be harder from now on. Also we have stuff to work on. Like prisoners to rehabilitate instead of having them rot there forever.
>>42355997Speaking of should I update the prison to use that one anon's idea of placing the goat you found in there with them?
>>42356028That was my idea, and I still support it. It would be some funny shit.
>>42356028>the goat you found...what? There's a goat?
>>42356028Which goat, the statue that has following eyes?
>>42356047Yeah, that one.
>>42356028If two people look at it, would both of them think it watching them?If so sure.
>>42356044>Goat figurine – The figurine is cursed with a strange illusion that appears to make the goat’s eyes follow you.Prison upgraded with the goat, you can always take it for research later.
You know, we had a stuffed crow like that back in my middle school library.It was creepy as shit.
You bite the bullet and stay put.“Who is this?” the twins ask you together.“This is-” you try to say.“Queen Tslah Goldeneyes last daughter of the endless tyrant Silvereyes,” Tslah interrupts you, “I greet the kings concubines, I owe him a great debt so I hope we will be able to work together.”“C-c-concubines?” Evangeline can hardly stutter out the word due to shock.“I can smell his scent on you all, is this an incorrect interpretation?”“It’s not, entirely wrong?” Elizabeth says and her sister finishes, “Eva here hasn’t decided yet however.”“Is it uncommon for human females to share claim to the strongest mate then?” The queen asks.“They think it’s weird to share,” Ayla morphs her body into dozens of different women while she talks, “I can look like anyone so does master really need more?”Tslah and the twins laugh at Ayla’s antics but Evangeline looks a bit worried.“Wait your not allowed to do that when you look like me!” Evangeline complains to Ayla.“Yes, those are indeed demon pegasi, would you happen to remember who it was that came to take them Tslah?”“No, I was hidden away because of my health and the assassinations of my siblings, my father would never allow me to meet with dignitaries or suitors,” Tslah says, “rumors in the palace spread about it being a human king perhaps? ”“Are there any special needs that the pegasi have and do they have any abilities we should prepare for?”It is then when a circle of runes appears in front of your gate.“Warning, teleportation detected,” Hestia says via drone.A breeze that should not exist blows as a silver clad figure appears, his hair gently flowing in the wind.“Not again!” Evangeline groans.>Nope, teleport back inside >Wait for his ‘dramatic entrance’ to be complete>Oh good, call out to him, you have an audience to humiliate him in front of this time>Other

>>42356575A little while back. A few anons were pondering sending back a letter, before we realized we didn't know where to send it.We also thought it would be a big hit to his ego if we graded his letter's contents and his penmanship like a teacher.
>>42356575After the gryphons, before the last trip to hell.

Light begins to shine from nowhere illuminating his silver armor, its sparkling gleam catches the eyes of all who look upon –Nope, you interrupt this nonsense and walk up to him.“What?!” He exclaims, “Villain you were prepared for my assault and ambushed me outside the gates? Have you no shame or honor?”“What is this?” He notices the girls and pegasi have stopped what they are going to see what is going on here. “My darling Evangeline as promised I have returned to rescue you. I see now that this villains knows no bounds for he has captured more fair maidens and openly consorts with demons.”He locks his eyes onto the twins, “Do not worry, for I, Marquis Gabriel Armstrong - The jewel of the western front shall rescue you! ” He flips his hair back.You reply by handing him back his letter as everyone including the two demons gather up and chatter amongst themselves.“Ah, yes my letter, perhaps there is yet some small smidgeon of virtue buried deep inside you after all villain, to return my letter to me so that I may,” he opens the letter up before continuing, “gaze upon the beauty of my writing once more, it will be a delightful change from seeing your despicable capture of these ladies.”(1/2)

Grammatical mistakes, misconceptions, falsehoods and even the slight deviations in his writing where letters are different sizes or his line wanders slightly up or down, all of this and more is pointed out. As he reads the letter everyone watches as his confidence is shattered. He doesn’t even move or reply, his eyes are just locked on the letter, empty, with a thousand yard stare.“What did you just do to him?” Evangeline asks.“I simply corrected his letter,” you tell her.She walks up and takes the letter away from the Marquis’ immobile hands.A few moments later she can’t contain her laughter and everyone crowds around to see the corrected letter.You now have a group of women laughing themselves to death and one petrified Marquis.>Get the women and pegasi and leave him alone out here>Take him into you prison so you don’t need to deal with this again>Leave everyone out here you have other stuff to do>Other

You snap your fingers at him, trying to wake him up, but nothing happens other than your decks of cards shuffling themselves.The pegasi have come over to the see what the commotion is now, they too fall prey to snorting with laughter when they see the letter. Didn’t Ayla say they were not smart?No matter, you usher them all back into the city leaving the Marquis alone out there, he’ll be fine, probably. The researchers are talking on top of the wall, it seems that a few of them know who he is and everyone is very confused by what just happened.“My apologies,” Tslah says once the laughing has died down, “I did not think human humor could translate so well.”“I hope you don’t mind but I would like to keep this letter,” Evangeline says, “I’ve never seen a reaction that bad to something.”“Aww no fair, I want a gift too master!” Ayla completely misunderstands, “”“The shops in hell were interesting to go to, can we go back?” Elizabeth asks.“I didn’t really like watching every die in the arena though, we can skip that.” Katherine agrees.“I would not be opposed to seeing more of your domain,” Tslah agrees as well.>Take everyone to hell for another kind of hell>Turn them down, you have other things to do>Other

Yes, the whole point of this is so that she can interact fully with others, a android body would be cool but it detracts from the goal. So you work for hours from a library of genetic code to create what will eventually look identical to the avatar Hestia designed for use in virtual reality. Then you work on the connection unit more Hestia seems like she would be hard pressed to just jump into a mostly human body so you prepare it to use an advanced sensor package rather than a flesh and blood brain. Then the eyes will need to be replaced as well so you spend a while designing synthetic eyes that will appear to be completely normal.>54 not as goodChoose three design modifications:>Pure mana diet>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor plating>Increased strength>Increased dexterity>Increased constitution>Increased sensitivityAnd with that the project is complete; you just need to grow the organic parts in a Bio-tank. But are you ready to do this? Are you really ready for Hestia to have a physical body?>Y>N
>>42359896Does sensitivity apply to like, the inbuilt 'scanners', IE the eyes and ears and shit?If it's the more sexual kind of sensitivity, then I vote for>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor platingBecause I doubt she wants to actually eat mana all day every day. Flavor is one of the best things about being alive.That being said, can she still partially eat mana without the pure mana option?
>>42359896>>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor platingReady here doctor>Increased sensitivityLewd
>>42359980All feedback increased, both kinds you've outlined there.She can still taste things with pure mana diet, it just makes it so the body recharges by being plugged into the grid rather than eating.
>>42359896>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor plating>Y
>>42359896>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor platingThese are good.Wait to give it to her until the armor she is designing for us is finished. Double reveal.
>>42359896Ah, I was thinking it would have been an organic brain with plenty of hardware hooked up to it instead of a fully computer brain. Damn.I mainly want to be able to somehow get her to understand Infinite Mind, and I think she'll probably need an organic brain for that, since machinery has hard limits.
>>42359896>N>Large mana reserves>Structural Reinforcement>Sub dermal armor plating>refine the biological components.
>>42360136>Hard limitsFor now.I'm assuming at least one person out there is waiting for 200 int to upgrade Hestia's coreSeems pretty tight on those three upgrades, and not revealing it now.
>>42360257Well, I don't see a harm in planning for some more upgrades for her right now. Not like we won't be able to give her another upgrade down the line.I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to change hestia's core system after presenting her with the body, to increase compatibility and boost overall efficiency since we have 100 intelligence on top of a few very important research topics finished and a maxed out goblin scavenging for the best possible parts to give her.
Upgrade results>Unit final health: 50>Unit final mana: 50>Damage resistance 5No this isn’t the time, perhaps when she finishes with the power armor, you conceal all your finished work, ready to be deployed but not complete. You finish your work by preparing a set of clothing.When you leave your study you run into Ayla immediately.“Master~” She seems very happy right now, “What are you doing?”“Finishing up a secret project,” You walk Ayla away from the study and through the mansion to the exit.“What kind of secret?” “It’s not a secret if I tell you, besides you already know don’t you.”“More fun if you do though,” She pouts.“Well it’s a secret so don’t tell.”“You can count on me!”You exit the mansion to find Evangeline panting and knocking on doors.“Did you do something?” You ask Ayla.“No?”“There you are!” Evangeline see you two and runs over with Ayla’s snake, “This, this thing bites you know!”“I know isn’t Sazglangolor just so cute?” Ayla takes the snake back.“No, it bites, that is NOT cute,” Evangeline is covered in dried blood and bite marks.“I don’t think I can handle looking out for her, how can you even keep track of her when she decides to vanish?” Evangeline complains.So Ayla was getting into trouble.Pick any number of choices>Heal Evangeline>They seem to get getting along, time to leave them alone>Punishments for everyone!And>Research>Train>Visit someone>Speak with prisoners>Go to hell>Deal with another research ring>Other

>>42360786>Heal Evangeline>Tell Ayla to think about what she's done, and how endangering others is a bad thing>Start writing up core upgrade plans to compliment the new body. Seriously, designing new systems specifically meant to help interface with the body would probably really help.
>>42360786>Heal Evangeline>Deal with another research ring
>>42360916Might as well, I can't think of a better time to offer it to her than during the trade. And making the plans now give us a good amount of time to really hammer out a good one. Maybe get the materials ready, too.
"Sorry, I probably should have expected that," you tell Evangeline as you expand your healing aura.Her wounds fade instantly, it was mostly superficial the little snake just has sharp teeth and is likely used to biting Ayla who doesn’t notice or care. Hmm, Sazglangolor seems to be injured too, torn muscles in the wings. Too much flying, or too much Ayla throwing it around, almost certainly it’s the second one. So you heal the snake too.“Did you just heal me? No medicine or spell? Just poof you’re healed?” Evangeline asks.“Yes. Now Ayla, endangering others is a bad thing to do, you should think about what you’ve done,” you admonish her, “Now, both of you can do some practice on the learning program.”“What is a learning program?” Evangeline asks“Its booooooring, the computer makes you learn things but you can’t even get to that high of a level,” Ayla helpfully explains.“Would it make it less boring if I gave you something for reaching or beating the level I got to?”Ayla is already gone, seeking out the learning center to beat your high score.Evangeline giggles, “If only I knew it was that easy to get her to listen. What level did you make it to anyways?”(1/2)
(2/2)“It’s been a while since I last gave it a shot, I was training to endure ten times normal gravity and reached level one million.”“Ten times normal gravity?” She just shakes her head, “Since I don’t know if that is impressive or not what level is Ayla at?”“In the lower tens of thousands I think?”“In other words it’s hopeless for her to even try?”“She’ll learn something at least, you should give it a try too. Its set up to give out rewards if you do well enough.”“Really like what exactly?”“It was made for goblins so mostly shiny baubles, but there are also written spells and other such things.”“Written spells? Like what I chose the book in Hell for? The things that are rather rare because they get used up when someone reads then?”“Yes, the means of making them was researched. We have a poor selection but it’ll do for now.”“Why even get the book then? You had what I was looking for the whole time.”“You seemed interested in it.”She sighs, “I’ll go see what this learning program is about then.”Evangeline leaves next trying to follow Ayla to the learning center.You wonder if Hestia’s learning program would be able to challenge you now, or perhaps it would be better to improve her systems again first. A double present for the power armor then, a body and core system upgrades, now just to design them.3d15+27And a 1d10

>55 vs dc 55 passHow exactly can you even improve the AI core, you are working from memory on how it is all put together. You spend a few more hours sitting and working usually coming up with nothing. You eventually narrow it down to four aspects that could be improved.Pick two:>Sensors>Processing power>System security>Mana flow and storageYou can’t help but feel that you have failed your overall goal here though; these are just slight improvements to Hestia’s systems. You feel like you are missing something, Hestia can’t understand the void entirely and there are gaps in her data relating to it whenever it comes up you would like to be able to fix that it possible someday.>Try again>Research>Train>Visit someone>Speak with prisoners>Go to hell>Deal with another research ring>Other
>>42362390>System security>Sensors>Try againMore time with whyfu
>>42362390>TrainI don't think we are good enough at the moment to make any real progress with this.To the Learning Program!!!
>>42362390>Sensors>Processing power>Try againReach deep within. Maybe meditate on the nature of the void and Knowledge, think more abstract than purely numbers and circuits.
>>42362390>>System security>>Mana flow and storage>Deal with another research ring
>>42362390So we all know that Hestia is going to be very adamant about Reggie sticking with just her and maybe Ayla now that she can satisfy him physically
Weird that we didnt make significantly better progress. Our mental rolls have grown to over double of what they were during the first upgrade, and our dice and their pool are both bigger. By all means, we should be making her at least two times more efficient.
>>42362823The solution is to get 200 int
>>42362390>>Processing power>>System security>Train
Sensors and Security win this timeWhen you choose to upgrade her systems Hestia will equipment to:Tied so have three:+90 perception+100 willpower+100 intelligence3d15+27and a 1d10 to try againThen training time.>>42362823Perhaps wires and crystals are not the best thing to build an AI out of? Photon distortion can open the way to much better upgrades.

Rolled 8, 11, 15 + 27 = 61 (3d15 + 27)God, you guys suck at rolling.Let a champ show you how it's done.
You decide that it isn’t good enough and work to improve the systems as much as possible.>49You work at the last few points of improvement that you can see. With some tinkering you manage to increase the potential of the sensor subsystems even more. With the base of work you already put in is easier to design the systems to achieve what you want. Then you design a custom monofilament to replace Hestia’s wiring to optimize her control over mana. Hestia’s equipment will now change to:+100 perception+100 willpower+100 intelligence+100 kiYou still can’t figure out a way to fix her memory gaps relating to the void. It’s been hours of sitting still though so you leave the study.Getting in some training in of you own might help.

>>42364388I concur. I want to make this guy into an actual man.
>>42364444TRUE QUADS CONFIRM!When we are done with him, Burgess MIGHT actually approve of him outside of him passing the FIRST test!
>>42364532You mean the SECOND test?Evangeline seems to be having trouble looking after Ayla so you decide to go make sure that the learning center didn’t get totally disrupted or destroyed.To your surprise even hours later both of them are still sitting at the computers trying their best to get to higher levels.“How is it going?” You ask.“Oh I bet I beat your score now master!” Ayla says triumphantly, she has made it to the sixty thousands.“No Ayla, you are not even close,” Evangeline says, “I thought you said this thing gave out spells, so far all I’ve gotten is one.”“Was it something bad?” You ask.She casts a spell and a ball of light floats about, “well this is not exactly exciting but I suppose it is more than I could do before.”You check her level, it’s around seventeen thousand, more than you expected actually.“Well keep at it at a higher level you may start getting something better.”Then you sit down and try to learn more yourself.>Auto-successYou spend a while at the computer the multiple simultaneous problems are not even a challenge for you right now and you rush through all of it, memorizing strings of numbers and words while solving ever more complex mathematical equations nothing even fazes you at all. At some point it just feels Hestia gave up trying to improve the program and is just having you filter and compile vast amounts of data.When you finish crunching data for Hestia, your level is rated at over seven million.“Is that even humanly possible?” Evangeline asks.“I’m not human and I can’t even do that,” Ayla says.“I thought you two were studying?” You ask.“After you started all the computers shut off,” Evangeline tells you.Your computer displays Hestia’s avatar, “My apologies it seems, the learning program yes that it, was overloaded.”“Wait what is this?” Evangeline asks.“It appears I should have fully restored my sensors before contacting you,” Hestia says.>Introduce them>Change the subject>Other

>>42365127>But that Goblin King, now there's a man for my daughter! I mean, look at how squared and robust his jawline is! Now there's some strength!Sometimes I feel like Burgess is really stupid, then I realize he probably just doesn't care so long as it doesn't fuck with his daughter or his job.
Introduce them wins by a slim margin it looks like.Writing>>42364812Yes, you are one of three people to pass the first test. And one of two who were not trying to.

>>42365358No it’s actually the first person Director Burgess met that was stronger than him. The idea of someone surviving his punch being good enough for his daughter he came up with later. I think that is enough obvious spoiler relating to this topic for now.

“This is Hestia she is-““This was my mistake I am capable of handling it,” Hestia interrupts you, which really needs to stop happening. With a flash of light you are teleported to Hestia’s monitor room. The room is illuminated by the blue glow of Hestia’s avatar.“I am an artificial intelligence, I have taken the name Hestia,” She continues, “after a total system failure resulting in my termination some years later I was repaired by-”“Wait an A.I.? That shouldn’t be possible,” Evangeline cuts Hestia off this time, “my father said that A.I.s are dangerously unstable and always genocidal.”“Obviously master is just good at fixing things,” Ayla chimes in.“No you are correct I suffered from extreme genocidal tendencies prior to system repairs,” Hestia states, “instability is, under control at this time.”“The instability is now jea-”“You let an openly genocidal A.I. have free reign with some sort of advanced teleporter?” Evangeline asks you cutting of Ayla, “I something strange was going on around here, but doesn’t that seem like a very bad idea.”“I trust her without question,” you say.“Yes, and as I said that is no longer an issue,” Hestia states.“Yup, like I tried to say its j-e-a-l-o-u-s-y!” Ayla seems proud of herself for getting it out this time.“Wait what would an AI have to be jealous of?” Evangeline asks then looks at you, “oh…”(1/2)
(2/2)“Yes, well now that we have cleared this issue up, I will need to ask you not to spread this information around,” Hestia says.“But how can that even work, I mean computers and humans can’t really,” Evangeline blushes when she realizes where she is going with this, “uh, work together.”“That won’t be a problem forever,” Ayla starts giggling, and Hestia’s avatar become purple tinged.“What you can do that?” Evangeline turns even more red.“This has managed to get very off topic,” You say, “we are currently trying to keep a low profile so just do talk about it to anyone.”“Fine, but you’ll owe me more magic for this,” Evangeline says.“You are still a prisoner, you should not make such demands,” Hestia states, “but I will allow you to learn more since you have shown good progress thus far.“That finishes everything up here, so everyone starts to leave Hestia’s monitor room.“If you could remain behind for a moment Goblin King.” Hestia asks you to stay behind for some reason.> [ End ]We seem to have been derailed there so that is the end for now.

>>42368579>Second weapon now available to manifestNoice.I'm putting forward a rapier, because it'll fuck with Maxie-whateverthefuck and because we already have a heavier weapon in the form of a halberd, so a speedier weapon would be nice.
>>42368700I'll second the rapier.Next time he shows up, we need to have an honorable duel. And correct his form and maneuvers as we go.
>>42368579>SymbiosisAwesome, the ability is slowly getting stronger. That much closer to a viable venom suit underarmor.>Thunder CanonSweet, this'll become a signature ability along with lazor. We can cast both through living weapon right?>Draining touchDat synergy with Living weapon though! I was hoping that udgrade would add mana to the draining effect.>IncorporealityWhen this is up, does our Living weapon gain ghost touch?>Living weaponAwesome, I think we should wait on the weapon vote, but if people want to go with Rapier I don't see why not.
>>42368735>"Okay, Max, I noticed you use a smaller weapon like this, so I decided to get my own, so I practiced for about fifteen minutes, and - I notice your stance is a bit wide..."
>>42368579So right now, Living weapon takes 8hp to manifest.

The villain’s power is far greater than I ever imagined, he has captured not just by darling Evangeline but three other helpless beauties as well.I know it has been longer than three days, but I had to train my penmanship to the heights of excellence, somehow the villain has flawless handwriting. How could he have had the time to develop such a skill will forever remain an unknown, but I have finally surpassed his level of skill. My hands are bruised and still bleeding but it is all worth it.The villain had six women with him, six. Completely unbelievable at first glance I know, but I believe two of those women were not even human but rather were demon spies from hell. The other four lovely ladies surely were under some sort of demonic bewitching curse.Many paragraphs of explicit actions he would perform on Evangeline, Ayla and the twins are scratched out.My mind wanders yet again, but surely the key to defeating demons is holy energies. So first I must travel to the distant east to find some means of gaining holy protections. Then I shall brave the far north to anoint my blade with holy fury. To the south at last to find an ancient holy mirror which can shatter the bonds of even the most foul demonic brainwashing curses.With all this set into place I will have gained the power needed to reclaim my darling Evangeline and the three other beauties that the villain has kidnapped. My plan this time is foolproof and nothing can go wrong.With love,The jewel of the western front, Marquis Gabriel Armstrong!!!
>>42369750>tfw he shows up with holy gear>and Reggie just turns on his holy auraAw shit. Hold on, my hype is growing too strong.All the scenes with this guy are fucking golden.I have never once seen an "enemy" be so amusing before.
>>42369750>Not really sure why people care about this guyBecause we're going to turn him into a REAL MAN.Won't he be surprised when we pull our holy aura out in response to his claims of defeating us with holy magic.
>>42369750I wonder in what way we're going to humiliate him next?"You think you're righteous? The God of the realm of Law gave me this as a symbol of our friendship and alliance." And hold up the orb, maybe?and then we awe him with the tales of our selfless journeys to kill the demon lords, and return both a lost acolyte and some holy books, even though it could have ended badly or have been a trapWe will humiliate him with our virtues.
>>42369750>Ayla>helpless beautyTop Kek.
I wonder, if we killed this guy and ate his soul, what would the things we could pick up be?>blonde hair>frilly sleeves, all the time>jobbing mechanic?
>>42369951Ego growth ability (exp must be spent in it whenever possible)
>>42369908Maybe flash him the deeds to hellIf he sends down ne'er-do-wells who might want to collect them, then we'll get us some nice souls, I imagine.
>>42369951>Ineptitude with women.Could be useful. We're up to our neck in girl at the moment.
Max will only receive a true fight from us when he finally learns how to abandon his pride, ego, and overbloated sense of self worth. We absolutely have to keep embarrassing him until he shows humility.
>>42370070>tfw Reggie, a 100% asshole is helping someone abandon their egoI don't know how to handle this, but I love it.
>>42370140>a 100% assholeMaybe in life, but we really seem to have turned over a new leaf since we died.I mean... Disabling the power suits, healing our enemies, freeing the layers of hell, empowering the goblins, plus, I think we've killed one person since we died, and that was entirely self defense.

>>42370381Well those are all selfish actions for the reason behind them.More possible recruits, and at the very least extra suits. We aren't lords of any layers because it would trap us, and we are their King, of course we empower them!Everything can be spun either way, but Reggie isn't performing a bunch of selfless acts, some things, sure, but all of them? Hell naw.
>>42370416While that may be the case, he's still not 100% asshole.He's pretty high up there, maybe high 80s, but definitely not 100%.On this note, we really should give the twins some love.I just read our social links, and they're carrying five babies between the two of them.And knowing us, there'll probably be 7 or 8 once we meet them.
>>42370475>Why are these women giving birth to litters?>fucking Goblin Scavenging
>>42370583What happens when it pairs with regular looting, that we will one day get. Do the kids all end up as blonde hair blue eyed 10/10s?
>>42370381We've killed several people, I'm guessing your definition of person is human. Goblins are people, we've killed a few. Every demon we've killed had hope and aspirations, people.We have killed, to our knowledge 2 humans. Steve, the asshole genius behind adaptive robotic, because the security guard wouldn't let us capture him, we claimed he was a threat, and the AI research levels red card security guard, he attacked us because we killed Steve, we were the aggressor.
