The Hive: Xeno quest; part deuce!Picking up from >>43386039.(This will be a short one, to finish up the following quests beggining for the night.)We are currently a small hive of Xenomorphs, consisting of:2 x Adult Drones.2 x Unhatched eggs.1 x Adult Praetorian.We are currently controlling the 2 drones above a residency patrolled by 3 guards using flamethrowers and side arms, also within the room are 3 sleeping unarmed personnel.we have sent a Drone outside to cause a ruckus, whilst the 2nd is sitting in the vents above waiting for the opportunity to strike and HOPEFULLY take another host for the hive...The drones are named Dildo and Raptor, Dildo is outside, raptor is in the vents.Your options are the following.A) Open the vent silently to ensure a stealthy grab. (d100)B) Make Dildo cause a ruckus outside, distracting the guards (d100)C) Other.
Sup /tg/ ain't letting me archive the first one, anyone else having better luck?
>>43388708Lets go with option B. Ruckus is good, but after that fast attack while they are distracted.
>>43388729Done, link. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/43386039/
>>43388708B) Make Dildo cause a ruckus outside, distracting the guards (d100)
A and B mixed.First make a ruckus outside and as humans are paralyzed distraced and or focused on the ruckus outside the second Xeno grabs whoever is closer to the vent. Do not try to open the vent before the ruckus otherwise the whole plan might go to hell.
>>43388708I wish we could mess up the ventillation, and pump carbon dioxide into the room till they faint
B it is. Give me a roll and I'll start the write up, 2d100.
Rolled 26, 87 = 113 (2d100)>>43388758
Rolled 87, 31 = 118 (2d100)>>43388758
Rolled 45, 70 = 115 (2d100)>>43388758
>>43388746I'm rolling this into the others, hence the 2d100.
>>43388764>>43388762>>43388765Okay, We pass both rolls: Distraction for Dildo DC 25 pass; pop the vents and grab a person silently raptor DC 60, pass.Write up incoming.
I don't know what the rest of the thread thinks, but maybe it'll be more 'fun' to see our results when you don't tell us the DC's but rather show us in the write-ups?Any thoughts?
>>43388801That sounds nice, actually.
>>43388801Eh, I'll agree with this.
>>43388801Eh, it would probably make it more dramatic I guess.
>>43388819>>43388820>>43388824Noted and point taken, i'll change up my style in the future.Dildo and Raptor, being the elite operators they are, synchronize their movements, as Dildo, begins banging around out front of the room, the guards all turn their, heads reach for their weapons and make a bee line for the door. Well, the two playing cards do, the 3rd is nowhere to be seen, his flame thrower is laying on floor next to a broken vent cover. No one heard the vent break open, as Dildo was a fantastic distraction.The guards at the door are hesitant to exit, for obvious reasons, but remain vigilant with their eyes painted on the thick door.The 3 personnel, lying on the bunks, shoot up as the noise begins and look towards the door as well.Raptor is inside the vents with his unconscious host. The future queen would be proud.A) Have the drones return.B) Have one drone return. (Which one?)C) Other.
>>43388844The drone carrying the victim returns, the other stays, observes and listens while maintaining a low profile.
>>43388844Have Raptor return with the subdued guard, have Dildo hang around and keep everyone on edge. The humans will tire out a lot faster than he will, and the constant stress will hamper them over time.
>>43388844b) have raptor return and have didlo keep watching, maybe an opportunity will present itself. Or of course he could just drive them all insane by moving around and making a noise every 8 minutes.
>>43388844Have a snack and morph if you can. Have another drone keep them on edge but stay at a distance
>>43388879>>43388882Seconded. More paranoia!How long they can be without sleep? I think Dildo can do so longer..
>>43388920Isolation, but you can't turn the game off, not sure if it will actually give us a mechanical advantage over the humans, but it definitely fits.
Someone named the drone Dildo? Are you the same guy who suggested we use Dildo as our secret password in another quest?
Raptor returns to the hive, too see the praetorian having gorged itself on the Kentucky fried colonist from earlier, has formed a large chrysalis and begun it’s metamorphisis into a Queen, the Hive grows… Laying the comatose guard down, next to an egg, the Raptor hangs around the hive too guard the growing queen, it’s instincts necessitating so.The guard deposited by the egg has been facehugged and impregnated with a xenomorph embryo.Dildo, remains outside the residency, staring menacingly into the room whilst pacing back and forth.The guards and personnel with in, are clearly on edge, and panicking, none take their eyes of you.You take this opportunity too…A) Jump into the vents and continue making noise above them.B) Continue pacing outside.C) Other.
>>43388959A) and make the occasional eldrich horror shreking noise if we're able.
>>43388940No. I took the name from Ark: Survival Evolved. Dino nicks>>43388959Could we disable the climate system? We can sense where the heat is coming from. Make them freeze
>>43388959Definitely move around in the vents, we want to keep them frightened and off balance, but we definitely don't want them to know precisely where we're located.
>>43388959A) Get spooky.
I'll be ending this leg of the quest soon, as i gotta get some sleep before work tomorrow.I'll be running the quest tomorrow about 6pm UTC+10 Brisbane.
>>43388959Keep making breathing noises and randomly hitting the walls and vents to scare the fuck out of them. No one is sleeping on our watch. Watch for vulnerabilities while we are at it.
>>43388993Alright just be sure to make a Twitter so we can know when the threads are up.
>>43388993Excellent job so far OP, I'll be waiting expectantly.
>>43388959A. Also remember to lie still from time to time, as sometimes nothing is far scarier than actual sounds of the Drone. Leave slime everywhere too?
Dildo channels it’s inner asshole, and leaps upwards into the vents, over the next 5 hours, it continuously knocks around, making hissing sounds, and bumping into the shafts.Every noise is greeted by an undisciplined bang, and cursing from below. No one is sleeping on your watch.The atmosphere is definitely paranoid and desperate, they are running out of options.Peering through one of the vents, Dildo is able to see one of the guards desperately clinging to consciousness, her head, slowly slips downwards, until shooting back up and shaking.They are exhausted.A) Pick off the dozing guard (d100)B) B) Continue making noise.C) C) Other.
>>43389040A) it's about to get spooky as fuck in here.
>>43389040Give them one more hour of extra intense tension, then lay still and allow them to sleep, at this point we can then pick off a guard at our leisure.
>>43389040>A) Pick off the dozing guard (d100)
>>43389040C) We have dead facehuggers at the Hive? Could Dildo get that and deposit/drop it in the room? So humans would think one of them is facehugged?
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>43389040>A) Pick off the dozing guard (d100)That was fun, but we are on a schedule here
>>43389057ThisBetter make them think they are okay, then grab one of them while they all dose off.
Twitter account is @QuestMaster1.I'll post when I've made the next thread tomorrow.Looks like we're going tactidrone with A.Drop 1d100 for me as I'm doing the write up.
Rolled 59 (1d100)
>>43389067You only have 1 more unhatched egg back at the hive, and all of our facehuggers have been converted to create hive aesthetics.
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>43389074
>>43389079The drowsy guard eventually slips off into a deep slumber, the remaining guard and the 3 personnel are currently huddled up on the other side of the room, they do not notice you slip silently out of the vent under the cover of the dark room, carefully you subjugate the sleeping host and hoist her up into the vent.As you do so, one of the people across the room, look over and notice the person missing.All hell breaks loose, the guard looks up towards the vent raises the flame thrower and looses a continuous blast of liquid fire.Shots ring off as 2 more people raise their side arms and start popping off shots towards your ventilation shaft, luckily none hit you, but you doubt you will be able to surprise them again.Dildo, makes haste back towards the hive, to drop of the final host.All of the eggs are now exhausted, but soon you will have 3 drones, a warrior and a queen.The Hive has taken root, and soon ore hosts will be present.There is a loud boom, as you hear what sounds like fast moving craft?The marines have arrived, the party is just getting started…We'll break here for the night, it was a good run, lads. I'll post my twitter again, and drop the archive link in the next Op.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>43389074
>>43389140Thanks for running OP!
>>43389140Shit's about to go down!What's your longterm goal for the game OP?
Twitter: @QuestMaster1Archive for first thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/43386039/Archive for second thread: Some one please link.
Oh boy. They are here!So there is just 4 survivors, really tired. And then a squad or more of marines.Send one drone to their dropship (dildo seems stealthy enough), other guards the hive and gestalting queen?Thank you OP for this already!
>>43388756Fucking metagaming aliens in SS13
>>43389186>Some fuck releases the Kudzu>Some other fuck releases the Blob to counter the Kudzu and the Xenomorphs.>I release the singularity in my ANGER.
>>43389186Aliens in SS13 do that?
>>43389174Long term, I want you guys to be the first intelligent, sapient, Xenmorph hive to impregnate it's way across the universe.Short term, I'm trying to breed some personality into what is usually a hard to run quest as hiveminds and xenos tend to fall flat from what I've seen.
>>43389195....What would a Xenomorph spacecraft look like? Because apparently Hive-creep is as strong as steel once it's hardened.
>>43389194if a player gets the role of a xenomorph, yes.They are able to open gas-canisters and destroy the electronics. In the right combination, they can put the whole station to sleep and then just infecting them.
>>43389195>The Xenomorphs have become aware enough to tinker with their own genetics and craft new purestrains for specific purposes>One of which is FTL travel.
>>43389201I guess we could eventually get some Xeno R&D going, but for now, surviving the nuclear holocaust from Colonial buzzkills, may be a more pressing matter.
>>43389201Well, I'd assume it would be a pretty simple craft, probably a projectile launched by organically produced fuel between planets, perhaps carrying several dormant praetorians and a sizable clutch of eggs.
>>43389201We'll steal ships, fuse them, and we'll be a massive traveling Xeno-Death Star
>>43389209If they have a ship large enough that it's given nukes, then we have a suitably sized area open for hive colonization.
I can't make another archive at the moment, so if another could archive this thread, that would great. Xenomorph quest part 2.
>>43389201I dont think they will be able to make their own ship. They might have enough smarts to get a ship running and send it to a colony. Or we could jump the space shark and have them infect some kind of "living" ship of another alien species. Like the thing from farscape.it bursts up and releases a giant xeno-transporter. There is your ship.
>>43389281The Zerg from Starcraft didn't have Space-travel until the Overmind psi-enslaved a bunch of Behemoths / Giant Space Manta-Whales.We should obviously do the same, and use the DNA for a new purestrain to be perma-saved to the Hive.Or be like the Wraith from Stargate, their ships are the result of advanced bio-technology resulting in a bacteria that just kinda...grows into the shape they want.
Just to keep the thread alive and make use of it, assuming any of you guys are left alive, OP said he wanted to give our starting Xeno's some personality. What should we do with them in both appearance and nuance that will individualize our starting group outside of just naming them?
>>43389497I'll leave the thread running, whilst I'm sleeping and I'll write up any additions and take note of what you guys discuss, when i awake. Take, care, OP.
>>43389497Add dark crimson highlights to our carapaces.
So, Whats the plan when the Navy shows up?, Hide aboard a ship?, Because we have no way off of this station so far.
>>43389605It would seem prudent to erase as much evidence as possible, and then try to hitch a ride to orbit. At that point, we're up against a total crew of 2000, with up to 90 of them being awake at any one time, assuming their ship is a Conestoga class like the Sulaco.
>>43389497Xenomorphs actually have a fuck-ton of personality, the problem is diversifying them.See: Grid from the first AVP movie; or 6.I think I remember reading somewhere that when they weren't being horrifying murderbeasts Drones and Runners are quite playful.
>>43389605Presumably killing all the marines would be insane, given that we do not have that many active Drones.Stealth is our ally now, butif that fails, ultimate rampage with the Queen.
I've got it!We don't -need- space ships! We just need the ability to get from ground to orbit and travel faster than light!>Dragon with a Thousand Winds>Like a Murder of Crows.>The Night of Oh God Please God No.
>>43390924Fuck.>>43390769>You are now picturing drones wrestling like cats and runners jumping off of things like goats
>>43390990>You are now picturing drones wrestling like cats and runners jumping off of things like goatsBut I always pictured that.I also picture them all snuggling into a giant pile at the center of the Hive with the warriors being the ones who meld into the walls when they take their naps.
>>43391273A lot of things in nature can be cute, when they aren't being horrifying.Like, cats are just very tiny murderbeasts, the big ones act just like their smaller cousins.Or ants, there are species of ants that do animal husbandry and care for them, often times grooming the aphids like we would a favorite dairy cow for that sweet nectar.
>>43391334>animal husbandry and care for them>flashbacks to the lewd comic about aliens capturing and raping dudes intensifyFearboners, man.
>>43388708What was meant by "Blank" in the initial facehugger selection? What kind of Xenomorph strain is that?Also, do Xenomorphs sleep? I'm not that knowledgeable in this Franchise
>>43391849Blank meant other, and yes xenomorphs sleep(or atleast hibernate), just not nearly as much as humans.
>>43391849I think they "rest" like fish, I don't think they actually fall unconscious unless they're hibernating to stay alive over very long periods of time. Considering they were genetically tailored from the ground up, they're bodies probably make much more efficient use of energy than ours do, and thus whatever level of rest they need is significantly less.
>>43390924fuck this shit of alien with wings flying trough space. This thing is nightmare fuel
There must be some way to impregnate hosts without outright killing them, or impregnating them with multiple embryos to enhance efficiency.As it stands, xenomorphs are limited to the number of hosts they can capture alive, which seems really ineffective.
>>43393906we have ca 2000 + sleeping people. if we act smart, we can crack the cryotubes open,facerapelove them and have more xenos. We don't even have to infect all of them. We even can eat the people. My main concern is that too many xenos turning the place into a hive might damage the stations systems. without live support or power the cryo people die before we can impregnate them.
>>43393807The possibilities are limitless, if we can get onto the human warship and hitch a ride to another planet, we could also assimilate the traits of any predatory species we find. Just imagine what would happen if we could get onto space Australia. >>43393906Since we're playing by AVP:E rules, there is a mutation which can cause chestbursters to mutate into twins, but only for drone variants, I'm not sure how OP could introduce the upgrade system from AVP:E to here, but it does exist.
>>43393906There's plenty of fetish shit that deals with xenomorphs impregnating women in *alternate* ways to produce multiple offspring. Plus there's the AVP:R predalien shit with the multiple egg laying.In Aliens:Labyrinth the aliens somehow manage to impregnate a woman's womb with multiple alien fetuses, but they have to tear her open to get them out.
>>43394543Is that one of the Bugs from Starship Troopers?Mother of mercy.
>>43395536>it has a second mouth the size of a sedan
Something unique our xenos could do is we could wear clothes.Not full pieces mind you small trophiesA pair of glasses on a warrior's face.a scarf tied to a drone's tailBullet proof vests on the queens shouldersPredator mask pauldrons
>>43397023That sounds dumb.
>>43397519Come on! Imagine a Warrior drone with a pair of reading glasses on it would look hilarious.
>>43394543for some reason I'm reminded of the /co/ fusion threads.
>>43398866Funny doesn't mean not dumb. Just have our hive have dark-Crimson highlights along our carapace.
>>43399679Oh, man, I've been up for the last 3 hours, doing write ups and preparing the maps for the next session. I wrote up the colonial assets you guys may come across on the next thread, it's going to be a doozy if you guys end up going into space, 5 hours to go.
>>43399767My twitter so you can know when I post the next thread.@QuestMaster1
If any drawfags, want to mess around with the colour scheme of our hive, feel free to do so and we'll have a vote at the start of the next thread for what we go with. here are some fantastic drawings for you guys to play with.
>>43399767Dude this shit is going to be good. I can already tell that you're going to run a good series. I just hope I can stay up until 3am EST to catch it.
>>43399822Well, I don't think I've actually made a single colored drawing in at least five years, but I am throwing together a quick sketch of Spooky post-metamorphosis.
>>43399822I was dicking around in some online photoshop thing with this image.This is what I came up with, and it looks like some ridiculous art shit. You can't even tell it was ever a xenomorph. This is bullshit.
Here's what's done so far, hot off the scanner.
How long till we start? It's 7:00am here but I want to be part of it lmao
>>43399224>Xeno/Hydra is just a modded PraetorianHuh
>>43399224>hydralisk in the same category as xenomorph and chryssalid>new style chryssalid instead of the original
