Agona's ship appears over the Lavafathers moon and she makes the familiar descent through fierce storms. Punching through the perpetual storm her ship sails over rain-slicked and steaming mountain ranges, the jagged peaks looming in the gloom below with bright strips of molten stone criss-crossing the landscape.The Lavafathers volcano rises in the distance, a river of orange magma flowing from it's caldera down it's sides. A shipyard grows on the safer side, ships in various states of completion filling the pylons. Stone buildings crop up around the shipyard, settlements for the stonestar natives that work alongside Obsidianborn and loaned Reconstructed.The frigate transporting the formidable Punisher General hovers near where Agona first made contact with the Lavafather by a great lake of molten stone. She strides across fields of black stone crunching under her heavy steps and stops at the edge of the glowing pool where one of the floating Obsidianborn awaits her.A pillar of black stone rises from the molten pool, cracking down the middle and splitting open into two pieces. The inside was a hollow space barely large enough for Agona to squeeze into. She glances at the Obsidianborn before nodding and takes her place within. The stone coffin seals around her and drifts to the center of the lake.There is hardly a splash as it disappears under the lava and you lose track of her presence as it fades deeper into the core of the mountain.The Lavafathers voice rumbles, "She will be Reforged and worlds will burn in her passing."

>>46276477Completed Research:>Deathshead Guardian Fighter: A one-person fighter that carries enough firepower to pose a serious threat to Sub-capitol ships on it's own, this craft is the signature ship of the Deathshead Guardians. An interesting observation is the craft lacks a proper power core, instead the pilot links themselves to the ship and fuels it with their own potent natural abilities.>Advanced Missiles: The Osjiic ships relied mostly on a mix of ballistic ferrous slugs and a wide array of missiles. From cluster missiles to missiles larger than a fighter, the Osjiic armory was quite varied and deadly.>Osjiic Capitol Mimicry: Large blocky ships with much of their mass dedicated to heavy armor bulkheads.>Ahkam Capitol Mimicry: An array of ships from different builders but it was the thorned Kosda ships that made up the majority of their capitol ships.
>>46276568Super hotSuper hot Super hot
>>46276745>>Advanced MissilesSweet! Hope we get torpedoes out of this.
>>46276745Unlocked:Void-Overcharge: Void-Terrors and other Void power craft can now have their systems "overcharged" by a Void wielding pilot. This improves the crafts performance in speed, weapons systems, and maneuverability. The effect is temporary and runs the risk of causing the ship to go into a cooldown mode at the end of the overcharge.Pike Missile: A longer than the average fighter craft these missile pack an impressive warhead with the intention of damaging and destroying Sub-capitols and causing significant damage to Capitol ships. To make up for it's large target profile it relies on dense armor to keep it intact long enough to strike its target. Cost: 60M per PodMissile Upgrade: All missiles have increased range and a slight accuracy upgrade.AOMBS: Anti-Orbital Missile Bunker System- A large underground complex that spreads for miles this series of bunkers connect to a central factory where hundreds of missiles are produced daily and distributed. A single system of these can cover the entirety of a planet and its airspace, it's Pike Missiles able to reach even the orbit of moon. Dedicated to launching a swarm of missiles to attack anything violating its planets airspace from atmospheric fighters to capitol ships in orbit. Cost: 400,000B 500,000MOsjiic and Ahkam Capitol disguised ships can now be constructed by your pylons.Current Research>Combination FTL drive: Slow and Dangerous>Weaponized Tractor Beam: Slow>Necrotic/Living Experimentation: Slow>Void-Nova bomb: Slow>Storm Gate: Slow>Deathshead Armor: Medium>Arc Technology: Slow>Warp Engine: Slow>Smuggler Hold: Medium

>>46276821The Predators Nekris and Eiton stalk the corridors of Station 88, fighting the Blackscale Cyborgs and capturing the few remaining resistance fighters. The oxygen levels of the station had been allowed to drop low enough that the living guerrillas were becoming sluggish and struggling to breath. More and more were captured, allowing the two generals to focus on routing the foreign undead. Losses have been sustained but they are quickly replaced using the dead left in the wake.The Voidknights scour the mining planet, Gargoyles and Stalkers searching for the remaining Deathshead Guardian. Eventually one of the Disciples discovers a broken stone and flakes of void scorched metal letting them pick up its trail. The Guardian attempted to hide within a series of canyons but Reconstructed pour in, searching for their quarry.The Plainsrunners seem to be adjusting well to their new home, Jor and Red-Leaf-Strains speaking with the other Osogo about the possibility of inviting other herds to join them in time. Young David is quite popular with the Osogo, the babe growing fast, even faster than a normal human would normally but his parents have yet to notice his development.The Capitol City nears completion, canals filling with melt water from the snows on the mountains peaks and underground springs. Young eels and crustaceans are introduced to the waters filled with kelp and floating plants. Orchards spread throughout the city are given last minute touches, the various plants gained from the Armatocere growing well.The Fury of the Wormstar stirs beneath the waves of Rukor, its bone and metal shell that hid it from the outside universe cracking as it flexes its great limbs then relaxes. It was gathering its strength, the Mind of it learning all it could from it's Deep Rot and Charnel Vault cousins.The Blackscale have leveled their challenge to you, Necrotic energy radiating off an alien temple hidden in a dark jungle. They wait below for your arrival.
>>46277275There is much to be done. What shall you tend to first?
>>46277311First of all, does our flagship or the Fury of Wormstar come equipped with tractor beams? We came up with a little plan as to how to rise to the Blackscale's challenge in the last thread you see...
>>46277364>We came up with a little plan as to how to rise to the Blackscale's challenge in the last thread you see...So I sawAnd yes, they both come with tractor beams.
>>46277443Which of the two are more powerful? We are talking about raising a planetary structure into the upper atmosphere.
>>46277637That would be the Charnel Vault as right now the Fury is still not quite ready to emerge. Physically it's all set but it's doing final system checks and downloading the latest software patches as it were
>>46277443>>46277728So would performing THE PLAN with the Charnel Vault and a battleship or two instead of the two flagships be workable?
>>46277728Good to know, I'm going to vote for paying the blackscales a visit in our new flagship, with along with all of our requiems and omega mining craft. Their tractor beams would help in this endeavour.
>>46277728Well, how long do we have to wait then?
>>46277961Another day at the mostMostly so I can finish the stats for the Bioships that are unlocked with the completion of the Fury at the start of the next thread

>>46278632I noticed that, can you imagine one of those things with Lorgul at the helm? We gotta remember to build at least one by the end of the thread.
You suck at archiving your quest dude.

>>46278957Send some battleships and cruisers as well. Also, a lot of eyegores. In fact we should have asked Armatocere if they have cloaking detecting tech. Why are we sending Jor again?
>>46279204Grave did say that that is pretty much the exclusive property of the diver spec-ops of the sunscales.
Someone explain me for what reason we are taking Jor?! Keep him at the colony, he has important tasks to do and we can't risk him dying there. Don't just take a random suggestion with zero explanation of thought behind it.
>>46278891>>46279337Because it's fun. Don't worry he will stay on the ship. Let him watch. He likes to watch.
>>46278957>>46279337>YBecause we need someone to keep our Dirges company. Besides, the living like holidays, I hear.
>>46279437He can watch from the colony. "it's fun" is not an explanation. He is doing important tasks at the colony. Going here, he will be absent for a day or two. Do not take him.
>>46279535He's a necromancer now. This is a work vacation
>>46278957A lone Corvette appears in orbit over the dark world with a flash of light as it "skips" into the system. The ship drifts for a few minutes then descends to the planet below and the temple. Your voice carries over the airwaves the Blackscale had used prior, "I am here to face your challenge."There is silence as the ship comes to a stop just above the canopy of black-leafed trees then a burst of static, "The trial awaits. Prove your strength, relic."You grind your teeth in anger as the doors of the cargo hold open and you descend on your throne. The Throne held a trio of Dirges fused to the stone, posed to appear as if they were standing guard with shields and swords of glass. A sphere of telekinetic energy surrounds you as you push through the trees with branches bending out of the way. Strange alien creatures flee flying and swinging through the trees at your approach.The Temple looms before you, dark crumbling stone choked with pale white vines. Kyn'tk shifts in your grasp when you stand on the small step at the base of the throne and look up at the temple. You could almost feel the eyes of the Blackscale upon you, the entrance shrouded in vines but open for you.You stay there for several minutes, observing and waiting until you hear a croaking hiss in your skull, the Blackscale mentally contacting you, "You appear the part but your hesitation betrays your weakness."A cruel laugh escapes you, sending nearby creatures fleeing once more into the darkness, "I do not hesitate. Merely waiting. I find your "challenge" and "trial" insulting! You dare challenge the greatest general of the Wormstar and subject me to this degradation?" Your voice calls out insults and challenges against the Blackscales honor in the harsh language of the Wormstar and you can almost sense their fury through the mental connection.>cont
>>46280039High above in orbit a nova of Void-light ignites as the Charnel Vault arrives with its fleet. You gloat as the ships take formation in the skies. The Omega Harvesters, temporarily taken from their tasks, descend into the atmosphere with a guard of corvettes and Nails, the flagship staying in low orbit. Requiems and Dirges glitter like droplets of crimson blood as they lower themselves through the air in a circle then stop just above the temple like a halo of undead crystal.You still feel the mental contact with the Blackscales but they are silent as you call out, "Witness my power and realize your place, Blackscale. I am Jadyk the Lich-Lord, successor and inheritor of the Wormstars power and will. You are mere lizards born from their curse. You were an accident, a punishment. I was Chosen!"The ground rumbles as the combined might of the Dirges and Requiems, guided by your own significant might reaches out and grasps the main bulk of the temple. Stones crack and vines tear as the very foundations of the structure shift.Roll me 3d100 best of first 3 pls

>>46280082The temple shudders and groans as you reach down with your telekinetic powers and attempt to scoop the main structure from the very ground itself. Straining with the effort you wonder just how heavy a temple could possibly weigh. Even still you watch as the temple begins to lift up ever so slowly, dirt and stone falling away from the base with a cracking of rock.Gritting your teeth you thrust out both hands, mimicking the motion of picking up the ruins the Blackscale dared to challenge you with. You hope they were feeling foolish as you lift the temple several feet and climbing, "This is what I think of your challenge!" you bark over the mental connection."We were...wrong to doubt your power, yet... The temple was only the stage. Your Challenge is only now arriving, Lich-Lord," the words in the broken Wormstar language filling your mind only moments before alerts from your ships blare in distress.Your concentration falters as you look up to the sky and watch as a new star grows in orbit, the Temple slipping and sliding down into it's hole with a resounding crash that shakes the trees for miles.A yellow sun grows in orbit above the planet then novas into a burst of light and radiation scorching the hulls of flickering the shields of the nearest ships. From within the nova appeared a fleet of ships. Ships of pale stone surround a Battleship of gray and white stone, a golden sun emblazoned across it's hull. The skeletons of a pair of intertwined Ahkam juveniles mounted across it, the spire of stone capped by a dome of golden light.Fighters shed from the hulls of stone ships like fleas and take up defensive positions around their parent ships. Small spheres of solar fire burn at the rear of the sub-capitols, the cores and engines all in one as they rotate their bulks to face your ships with weapons chargingYou were lucky, the Sunscale fleet arrived within sight of your fleet with their own weapons already charged.The Sunscale have arrived.
That feeling when your suggestion is not only accepted but gets good rolls I almost feel bad for the black scales they have been the greatest minds of working flesh and reconstructing the dead, we rock up all "your spelling sucks and the view from your house is crap, your too busy mucking about in diet and filth, let me lift you up and show you the stars
>>46280861They were being cunts
>>46280844Oh these little shitbirds. Okay, might as well make a show out of this, I say we vent the uncountable eons of frustration and helplessness we have experienced at the death of the wormstar and our imprisonment upon these fucking lizards. And we're going to want to warp in a much bigger chunk of our fleet to show these bastards what for as well.
>>46280844Well, it's a good thing we brought our flagship. Time to kill some lizards.
>>46280844The bastards called their parents? We'll luckily we brought most if the fleet We should tell Lorgul he might be upset if he misses this
>>46280844Let's fuck there ass
>>46280956Let's do Takei proud!
>>46280844No retreat for these sons of bitches, we don't want a lizard jihad coming down on us anytime soon.
Dearest sunscale a you know what we are but you do not know what we are about. We offer you this one chance to stand down and leave of your own accord. If you wish to mindlessly follow old doctrines without knowing the full story feel free to engage us and rediscover a fury that took the entire galaxy united to contain
>>46280953more like knew their cousins were showing up to go after them or lured them here to fight usbastards
>>46280997Let's pull those who would bully our brothers out of orbit and into the dirt
>>46280844How shall you deal with the Sunscale fleet? They haven't attacked but both sides are aimed at each other with weapons charged.Sunscale forces:>Battleship>2 Battlecruisers>6 Light Cruisers>20 Frigates>35 Corvettes>150 Fighters
>>46281030I like this. Let's be the utterly ferocious and ruthless lich with a cheeky and jovial demeanor.
>>46281135Call for reinforcements, definitely. We're outgunned here.
>>46281135Call for backup to flank these guys from the rear, while broadcasting this message >>46281030
>>46281135Drop them out of orbit, aim for the engines then pull the down away from their sun and let them eat dirt
I kind of want to try to capture at least some of them, try and get all up in that Solar type energy. Solar reconstructed would be neat.
>>46281244You know that they exploded when we tried that last time, right?
>>46281135Contact them and offer them the chance to surrender or at least see if they are willing to talk as we are not out hunting for new enemies Meanwhile send reinforcements. But we refuse to deal with anyone's attitude if they start shit we end it.
>>46281135Call reinforcements have them warp behind the sunscale fleet with weapons charged and facingbroadcast>>46281030Fire on them if they keep charging aim fort he battleship first and work our way down.
>>46281274Which is why we'll be more careful this time. He didn't explode till we tried to cauldron him anyways. maybe the NID or whatever could work. Or even just straight us stab-n-drain with the spear, we can absorb shit, remember? it's how we got void element.
>>46281274Yeah, I think Jadyk will have to drain one of them first and get some of that delicious solar energy under his belt. Then all he will have to do is insulate his captives' cells with crystal sponges attuned to said energy.
>>46281358I just want Jadyk to become known as the 'Solar Skeleton'
Yeah, get some more ships here. Do not engage before they do. Actually don't even start any conversation. Let's stall as much as we can. I did suggest taking bigger fleet with battleships and our generals in the previous thread.
>>46281445These are the zealots that attack Necrotic on sight, saying nothing will get them to attack us faster
>>46279086Actually I'm notI'm actually trying to get into this quest, but the tags are absolute shit. So, go fuck yourself is what I'm trying to say I guess?
>>46281135Seems to be>Send for Reinforcements, will take time to arriveDo you wish to attempt to stall for time or launch into battle already?>Stall>AttackDo you call any of your Generals to assist you?Lorgul and Jareth are searching for the DeathsheadThe Predators are clearing out Station 88Muic is mostly idle and tending to system defenses
>>46281501>>Send for Reinforcements, will take time to arrive>StallAnd no generals. This is a test for Jadyk specifically, and this is very much personal for him.
>>46281529>>46281536>Stall> No Generals
>>46281501>Stall>Lorgul>MuicDeep rot can handle system defense in the home base, lavafather for his system, speaking of which:>Tell lavafather if he wants some action, send his fleet here
This is a job for us and us alone
>>46281030yiss beautiful a warning for the bastards.
>>46281489>>46281501Well, let's stall them in any way we can. If keeping silent is going to have them faster then by all means, let's chat. This is going to end in fighting one way or another. Let's take Muic and one of the Predators. Also some disciples for that void element. And bring glutton spheres too. We know that Sunscale utilize void energy and perhaps we can attune it to solar if we experience it enough.
Offer them a chance to leave/ see if tey are willing I talk as we aren't the same world stripping armada. But considering their black scale brothers obviously lured them into a trap tey expect us to clean for them pout out we aren't all that interested in killing themBut one should always respect their elders, an lip and we give them a whipping and treatment all who challenge the lich lord receive
>>46281602These guys have shitloads of experience fighting necrotic a la blackscales, having a few void ships here would help out considerably
>>46281630They wont leave, they'll fight to the death because they're on a 'divine mission' from their god to leanse necrotic from the universe. There's no chance of them leaving without destroying us
>>46281639Do we have Arc variants? We really need to start breaking up our fleets into differently attuned ships. We should have same ratio of Necrotic, Void, Arc, Kinetic and soon to be Obsidian ships. And whenever we discover new element, we should build new ships utilizing it.
>>46281701As if we would miss out in a chance of sipping out those who killed our creator Maybe as a per project we can stitch them all together while still alive into a miniature wormstar replica, maybe keep them alive so it can be a nice writhing ball of agony held spinning on display in our trophy room by dirges
>>46281746Lorgul and co have void, Nekris and the hunters have arc, Punishers are about to have lava/heat/magma/whatever.Speaking of which, we should hurry and get arc/magma for ourselves, so we can start shoving that shit into reconstructed/researching it
>>46281746I prefer to have the bulk of our fleet composed of standard necrotic design, with a handful of specialized ships designed to utilize each form of energy. We keep costs low and avoid over specialization, while still having kickass ships that can spearhead actions against specific enemies and threats as needed.
>>46281866So perhaps we should arrange fleet designs for earlier management with varying quantities of certain ships as a base then then having specialised ships in their own fleet designs so we can say >send x of necrotic fleets and>send x fleets of element y
>>46281818We are already researching Arc lightning. Once Agona has obsidianborn powers, we should be able to research that too.
Might I suggest we build a temple for training the living necromancers then when ever we have captured prisoners or civilians if they have the spark they are sent there to serve out their initial transition period and then once they are acclimatised we induct them into the faith
>>46282083I don't know if we've got the scale or number of elements for such a system to work just yet. Give it time, we're getting there.
>>46282105I'd still prefer to actually be able to USE said element, we've ignored votes to drain akham, which we need to do to develop arc powers. Plus, whatever we develop from arc/magma will likely be restricted to those capable of using the type, like void was.
>>46281501Across your systems ships not currently engaged with immediate tasks rapidly pull away and enter FTL. It would take some time but they rush to assist you, sped along by urgency and already knowing their destination.The Sunscale ships drift into strategic positions, the Battleship rotating so the spire of it's hull aims towards the Charnel Vault. You hastily send a message to the ships on all channels and your voice calls out to them as you seat yourself on the throne and it lifts to the waiting corvette but stays within the planets atmosphere."Hold, we have now quarrel with you, strangers," you say, hoping the believe the ploy.There is silence and then there is a growling voice over the channel, "You reek of Necrotic power and your ships are made of bone and flesh. There will be quarrel and glorious battle, foul undead. Suffer not the dead to walk," they intone and the line cuts out.The small spheres of flame at the rears flare with light as the first volley is unleashed and quickly followed by the fighters behind. Your own ships unleash their weapons in answer as you swear at their hastiness.Roll me 3d100 best of first 3 please(sorry for the delays)

>>46282334From what you described from the visions of the past, we can use our spear as a weapon on an intership level at high power.Given current concentrations of power, could we use void energy to increase the density of the spear massivly, then use our telekinesis like a rail-gun to accelerate it into sub-capitols?
>>46282367Well rolled anon, well rolled.
>>46282412I remember from description of Jadyk at the apex of his power he was able to do exactly that, even without any void energy. Maybe it would give the Sunscales unpleasant flashbacks of their time fighting him so many years ago.

We were kind of a big deal, and we don't want the guys well known for hunting down undead knowing the biggest, baddest undead is out there and building up strength once more.
>>46282412We have the full force of our Dirges and Requiems with us on the planets surface. Lets use them to fling the spear
>>46282521I think the blackscales may have already ratted us out to their solar cousins.
>>46282588I think its more that they led the sunscale here rather than going "hey bros, remember that evil lich lord you hate? he's totally gonna be at coordinates XY, go fuck him up"Pretty sure they'd immediately ignore literally anything that the blackscales tell them.
Ok we'll flood their ships with the biomass eating tide so we can keep one or two of them intact Decimate the rest don't want Jaydk to do a boarding raid and they decide to dentists the ship with him on board
Might I suggest on all future visit we arrange for crit crawlers to be dispersed from the ships once arriving in system make it look like out FTL brings slot if debri with them but it's all just crit crawler
>>46282522Why not use them to Deorbit some ships?
>>46282945This, how ever how do we make it return?Also not launching Jaydk with the spear It's like you don't even try to rule of epically awesome
>>46282989>not turning the spear into a guitar and playing it as we burst into their bridge
>>46282334https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CfhlEX_ubYDefensive Corvettes leap into action, their repeater cannons rapidly shooting down incoming missiles and slugs made of dense metal and shielding the larger craft with their own forms. Several have their shields broken and their hulls crack open but their sacrifice rescues the other craft.Your own attack strikes against their ships wiping out a large portion of their fighters and several of the sub-capitols. The spinal cannons of the Charnel Vault launch slugs of necrotic infused metal as large as gunships at the Sunscale battleship but one of the heavy cruiser pushes itself in the way and a portion of the clustered slugs deflect wildly into the cosmic distance but the others shatter the shield and break the ship nearly in two.The Sunscale Battleship retaliates with a beam of solar fire that streaks across the distance, incinerating several nails before it strikes a glancing blow against the flagship, shearing off several turrets as it passed through the shields unhindered.A handful of Nails manage to swerve their way past the blockade of protective ships and narrow in on the Battleship, the main solar cannon already charging up for another attack. Weapons mounts turn on the ships and the narrow craft twist and roll to avoid the attacks. The unleash their missiles, pins and needles pouring into the mouth of the cannon moments before they fling themselves into the weapon itself.The Pilots in their final moments shout out, "For the Lich-Lord!" the cry picked up by the Deep Rot and the Reconstructed fleet as the Nails detonate themselves within the large weapon. Explosions rock the large stone ship, leaving the tip where the cannon once protruded a glowing crater.>cont
>>46283145The Charnel Vault takes advantage of their sacrifice, another volley cracking against the shields of a nearby battlecruiser and causing heavy damage to it's hull. The skies above the dark planet glow and flash with explosions and beams of energy solar and necrotic, the burning remains of ships streaking towards the ground.Your fleet was exchanging blows with the Sunscale fleet, ships exploding and breaking on both sides but you know that even with the Charnel Vault the costs to your fleets would be dire. The Corvette prepares to depart even as the defenseless Omega Harvesters land on the planets surface to avoid notice, Dirges and Requiems landing on the now lopsided temple and holding completely still like macabre decorations. You can almost feel their yearning to fight but trapped on the planet they would be easily picked off should they attempt to ascend to orbit.You fear for your fleet and your brand new flagship but your fears are partially relieved as a message reaches you from Muic, Jareth and Eiton. Each of the new Generals brought a force of your armada with them, appearing behind the Sunscale fleet thanks to the aid of your Eyegore.The three Generals command their ships forward and attack the unguarded flanks of the Sunscale, lightning cannons and spinal guns raking across their backsides. Their fleet suddenly vastly outnumbered the Sunscale turn their weapons against the new arrivals, fighting with a renewed fury that takes your Generals by surprise. Ships on both sides are sundered but the pure press of numbers begins to overwhelm the Sunscale until all but a handful remained.Remaining Sunscale ships:>1 Battleship>1 Battlecruiser>1 Heavy Cruiser>2 FrigatesNecrotic Losses:>1 Battlecruiser>5 Heavy Cruisers>4 Light Cruisers>14 Frigates>24 Corvettes>135 NailsWhat shall you do with the last ships?
>>46283164>Boarding Action Time+gas and swarm attacks
>>46283164Crash obelisks into them
>>46283164We should attempt a boarding action on their largest ship, and have the rest of our forces attempt to capture smaller ones, but destroy them if it seems they're going to make a break for it.
>>46283227Should the generals assist Jadyk on the big ship or they each focus on their own boarding action?I say we should destroy the other ships or pump them full of the wasting sludge or devouring swarms and focus on the battleship since that would be the main prizeAlso, ask the Blackscales if they're enjoying the show
>>46283164Looks like>Jadyk boards the Sunscale BattleshipSend Generals with him and if so, who?>Jareth>Eiton>Muic>AloneWhat about the other ships?>Destroy>Board and capture>Use Devouring Swarm>Use Wasting Sludge
>>46283552>Jareth and Eiton>Destroy half, Board and capture the rest
>>46283461They have a habit of self destructing before allowing themselves to be captureIs say we want to capture their capital to try and steal their main weapon
>>46283164Fix bayonets and board, we can't drain corpses of their solar energy. And let's be really brutal on these guys, they're the ones that slew the wormstar. I'm talking, flaying, dismemberments, general rip and tearing.
>>46283552Everyone Board and capture
>>46283552Can we ask the Blackscale what they want us to do with them?
>>46283587Who gives a fuck what these upstart cowardly lizards want? Can we all agree that once this all is over, we take whoever is in charge of Blackscales and toss them into a cauldron.
>>46283552>>Alone>Use Devouring Swarm>Use Wasting SludgeThese bastards don't deserve to live.
>>46283581We should make a note to drain/kill everyone aboard, and not take any prisoners from them, seeing as they self-destruct. we should MAYBE capture the captain, but even then they might be more trouble than they're worth.Also, fuck asking the blackscale anything, those guys are assholes and should be given the ultimatum of falling in line, or being destroyed
>>46283552>>Use Devouring Swarm>>Use Wasting Sludge
>>46283609Yes. These treacherous dogs have proven themselves completely unworthy to carry the mantle of the wormstar. I say we publicly drain whoever led the sunscales here and enslave the rest.
>>46283615We need some to experiment on
>>46283659Maybe a handful of the worker class, but even that would be tricky given their tendency to simultaneously explode. We might have to dominate them just to stop them from praying in captivity.
>>46283659They explode when we try, anon. IF we take prisoners, we should only take a few, and use them for the EXPRESS purpose of finding a way past their self-destruct. But then, I have a hunch we can help bypass it if we develop Solar powers by draining the shit out of their leader, personally, by not giving him even an INSTANT to think about exploding himself to spite us, because you just know he's TOTALLY going to as soon as we weaken him to a point where he can no longer win the fight.
>>46283701For all we know it only takes a glutton sphere attuned to solar to prevent them from exploding. Iirc, their self destruction was external.
>>46283750Still, I'd rather get Solar element for jadyk just in case, and we seem to get elements by draining particularly gifted people (ship captains/admirals/commanders).Plus, don't we need a person that can utilize an element before we can make a crystal to absorb it? I can't remember.
>>46283552Jadyk boards the Battleship alone while his Generals board the others.Capture the Leaders but drain the rest?>Y/N?Roll me 3d100 best of first 3 pls, time for a lizard hunt

By having someone with the ability to manipulate the energy connected to the Cauldron/Think Tank system they are able to study the energy and attune Glutton Spheres to it.Because of Lorgul and Nekris having the slightest of Arc power within him the first generation of Glutton Spheres had access to the three energy types, Void, Necrotic and Void
>>46283780Drain everybody. Perhaps try to capture a couple of grunts
>>46283814>100oh boy here we go
Rolled 34, 16, 69 = 119 (3d100)>>46283814Seriously, they don't even have any information we want, draining them is the most useful. We can use captured grunts to experiment on, their leader should be drained to try for Solar power so we can use spheres to nullify it next time, by which point we'll know how to bypass the 'Fuck you I'ma Splode' failsafe they have.
Once we wipe the floor with the Sunlizards we should ask the necrolizards if they know about the Masked. I'm sure a faction like them as been dicked around by them as well
>>46283814Awww shit, time to flay the fuck out of some lizards.
>>46283879Didn't the plants say talking about the masked was a faux pas, and generally a Bad Idea?On that note, am I the only one that kinda trusts the masked? or at the very least way more than Akka-Tor. I dunno, I just find something inherently trustworthy about their whole schtick; like they aren't going to lie to us because they could just use our enemies to fuck with us instead, whereas Akka-Tor betrayed her own patron by fuckin' EATING it, and lied to our face.
>>46283879The only interaction with the necrolizards I would vote for is torturing the top dog to death and enslaving the rest.
>>46283937Seriously, the blackscales are jerks. Hell, the human factions cyborgs are their fault too. They haven't done a single thing that shows them in a good light EXCEPT worshiping the wormstar, and even then, they talked shit about us, it's HERALD, straight to our face. They're like the space equivalent of edgy teenagers, only using necrotic energy because their space lizard parents disapprove.
>>46283985Enslavement and experimentation is the only way to find the way to kill their cousins
>>46284027Somehow, I don't think the blackscales inherited their brothers magical Solar powered anti-necrotic failsafe.
>>46283985They even talked shit about Wormstar, to them it's nothing more than a distant dream that failed, and that tore it for me. They don't deserve shit from us, if they want to learn anything about their inheritance they will have to earn it through blood and tears.
>>46284063I mean, why should we give them anything when they can't even respect the wormstar? To them we should basically be Necrojesus.
>>46284051Nah just their basic biology and thinking so we can make tailored death bringers
>>46283918Akka-tor basically admitted that she betrayed us when we confronted her about doing nothing while we were being killed. She was surprised we saw her and remembered.
>>46284100Did we mention that we saw her doing nothing? I don't think we did
>>46284111We did, to which she screamed at us that the crystals would have devoured her as well. What really set me off was the way she furtively glanced at her place/sun draining machine when we asked her where the wormstar was. Shady as fuck.
>>46284162Shes a betrayer of everything, she betrayed her patron, us, the wormstar, the undying court, hell, I bet the reason the masked hate her is because she betrayed them too.She seems like she only works with/under people until she has enough power to depose them, then immediately does so. She's Starscream.(Plus that bitch totally ate the wormstar/wants to eat the wormstar)
>>46284200We should absorb her
>>46284200Someone else I suspect we will have to drain before long. What do you think we should whisper in her ear just before we snuff her out?>"Turnabout is fair play, my dear."
>>46284236Man, what element would she even give us? Ghostliness? Spirit? Douchebaggery?
>>46284259Necrotic, same as us. Part of the reason she seems like such a likely suspect in the Wormstars demise.
>>46283845You writing or dead
>>46283780There was something about the situation that filled you with a white-hot anger.Just after visiting your former ally and the only surviving member of the Armada, only to learn of her compliance in the deaths of both yourself and the Wormstar. Then you find a faction of Necrotic controlling Sunscale cursed by the Wormstar only to have them disrespect you so grandly. They then had the gall to use you to fight their purist, undead hating cousins.Your rage boils around you as the corvette angles itself toward the skies, Dirges and Requiems floating into position around it before the full group launches into the air and out of the atmosphere.Nails and sub-capitols swarm the remaining ships, ion guns and acid-drops disabling or melting weapon mounts. The Charnel Vault latches onto the battleship with its tractor beam to hold it in place as Nails run strafing attacks against the thick stone hull searching for an entry.Your Generals split up among the remaining craft, Muic staying in her ship to keep watch and make sure there were no sudden unknown arrivals. Eiton and Jareth eagerly leading their Support Coffins to latch onto and board the ships.The corvette carrying you drifts to a halt in the shadow of your battle-scarred flagship, Requiems and Dirges ripping away chunks of stone until they manage to breach the hull. Atmosphere leaks out along with a few Worker Sunscale before the Corvette docks with the hole and seals it shut.>cont>>46284364Undead. Incoming wall o'text
>>46284446You were at the forefront of the assault on your throne, gunfire already peppering you only for flechettes and bullets to stop midair then drop slowly in the low gravity using the Dirges fused to your throne to form a protective shell around you.Shock Trolls flood in around you quickly followed by an array of Reconstructed troops. They only encounter Workers at first, the green and metal-scaled lizards falling back down hallways shouting and firing behind them as they're pursued by leaping and screaming Talons and Stalkers. Looms and Flatbody Gargoyles slither through ventilation ducts, dropping sedation and riot gas grenades or firing through grates at passing Sunscale.Your throne drifts down a hexagonal hallway of metal and stone as a flash of flame illuminates the corridor ahead. Shields of hard-light are raised at the front of a line of Warbloods, the hulking dark-scaled warriors armored in red and orange plates. Scatterguns bark harshly, filling the air with burning metal that tears through a line of Trolls. Several of the Warbloods inhale deeply then unleash a wave of flame from their mouths that washes over and cooks your troops.Thrusting your hand out you telekinetically grasp one of the Warbloods behind the front lines and tear them past their companions and the Reconstructed. The lizard shouts in alarm only to gasp as they were flung onto the blade of Kyn'tk, their body withering then falling to the floor.Standing from your throne you are handed a shield from a nearby Stinger and with spear in hand you dash through the air over the heads of your Reconstructed. Kyn'tk lashes out, snaking around a hard-light shield with blinding speed to open their throat with a spray of blood. Voidflames engulf your shield, chewing through the rounds they poured into you.>cont
>>46284468The Warbloods were a fearsome foe, your reconstructed suffering at their hands and flames but you carve a path through them in your fury. Bolts of Necrotic power and lashes of Voidflame leap from the twisting black metal of your spear, devastating the Sunscale and leaving a trail of withered and torn bodies in your wake.Diver Sunscale fire from behind barricades, launching grenades and bundles of razor-wire at your Reconstructed as Workers form shield phalanxes with metal shields and polearms that hum with electricity. Tall skinny green Sunscale leap from wall to wall, their x-shaped feet not touching the surfaces before they're propelled weightlessly down the hallways launching explosive bolts at pursuing Reconstructed. Strangely, among the Sunscale you encounter a number of other races, yet each armored or clothed in the Sunscale colors and fighting alongside them. Humans, Vorh, Kosda, Epikor, even Tyrre and a few lone Osjiic fight alongside the Sunscale with an almost equal zeal as their reptilian comrades.When it became clear that the tide was unstoppable alarms began to blare throughout the large ship and a voice begins to order an emergency evacuation. Looms and Shadows follow those that flee, picking them off one by one. They rush towards the outer hull then dive through hatches that seal behind them. Several don't seal in time and the unfortunate escapees find themselves locked in a compact room with the blood-thirsty Reconstructed, their blood quickly painting the walls and consoles. Escape pods are launched into space but they are quickly intercepted and either blown apart or snagged in the grasp of tractor beams or the Requiems and held captive for the moment.>cont
>>46284489You find the halls suddenly clear of the living, your shield cracked but still sizzling with void energy. Blood drenches you up to the elbow, splatters staining your armor and skull but Kyn'tk was spotless as it drank in the blood. Ahead of you lies the main bridge, the memories taken from a slain Kosda showing that room hidden under the large dome was where the commander and pilots of the craft waited.The doors creak then slowly open as you float toward them, a horde of Reconstructed at your back. The light was blinding within, a small sun the size of a crit crawl suspended at the height of the great dome. Consoles and stations were spread around the bridge on various levels and steppes, the highest peak holding a throne of stone just under the miniature star.Upon it sat a Warblood but one unlike any you had seen before. Larger than the others his scales were a pristine white except where jagged scars marked years of battle. Their armor was a stark black with white panels, a golden sun emblazoned across their chest. At their sides were a pair of Warbloods, their armor identical and each carrying an octagonal rod of runed metal.Standing the Albino Warlbood dons their helm before twin jets of solar flame like blades form in their grasp, "Come, Lich. Meet your true death," they say calmly before leaping forward with their Warblood bodyguards.Roll me 3d100 best of first three pls.

>>46284501>>46284506>94,77,90Looks like we will be drinking deep of solar power tonight.
>>46284544No. Why the hell would we for someone who probably only knows of them from legend, and will soon die?
>>46284544I think we should put the mask on only when we're either about to die, or safe and sound back home.Speaking of which, we should totally put the mask on once we're done here and enslaved the blackscales.
>>46284560Why would we want to sell ourselves off as a masked? That will probably only annoy them, and it's like we're giving credit for our accomplishments to someone who couldn't care less about us.
>>46284657What? No, I mean when we get back to base, and are safe in our bunker, we should put on the mask that we WON from them. To see what it does in a non-threatening situation, y'know? It's one of their masks so it probably has some kind of cool poer.I'm not saying we should go around and be all "Hey look at me! I'm a masked! whooooo!", because that would be stupid.
>>46284686I see your logic, but I personally think our time would be better spent meditating on the Wormstar. The last time we tried we kind of botched the roll and with how powerful we've become since then and all we've learned we might be more successful.
>>46284708Eh, they're both good ideas, but I'm just too damned curious as to what that mask DOES, man. Either way, they're both things we can do whenever, but the Wormstar's not getting any dead-er anytime soon, whereas the masked might be getting a little insulted that we went so far as to ask for a mask and then just left it lying around instead of doing anything with it.
>>46284742From it's behavior during our little chat with Akka-Tor I assume that it serves as a communication relay/tracker for the masked. They appear to be able to see through it and it responds to their thoughts, but it does not seem to confer us with any of their powers.
>>46284765Yeah, but we haven't tried putting it on yet, and if there's anything that would cause a mask to activate/whatever, I'd assume it would be putting it on.
We should make our bunker into a trophy room
>>46284916We already have.
Rolled 61, 54, 71 = 186 (3d100)GraveQM I summon you from your slumber
>>46284495A halo of flame engulfs the Albino Warblood as they fly at you, the pair of twin warblood rushing behind them. Their flaming brands lash out at you but a Shock Troll leaps in the way, the jet of flame passing through and nearly cutting them in half. Kyn'tk bursts from the core of the troll as you dart forward hoping to take the Sunscale off guard. The black metal scrapes across their armor as they use their momentum to twist away from the strike twirling through the air.Enraged Shock Trolls rush past you dueling with the albino to engage the pair of Warbloods. Swinging the rather simplistic looking weapons you are temporarily distracted as a Shock Troll very nearly explodes from the force of the blow that reduces bones to dust and makes a severed arm go sailing away. Spinning the rods with surprising speed they strike blows that should be impossible for their size and admittedly impressive strength.Kyn'tk shifts and reforms into new deadly shapes as you duel with the Sunscale Albino, both flying around the domed room in your vicious fight. Bolts of necrotic power lick across his armor but you feel his armor absorb the brunt of the attacks so you switch to the Void. Ultraviolet flames clash with radiant solar fire, Kyn'tk reshaping itself into a hammer that erupts with voidflame.The sudden change surprises the Lizard and causes him to hesitate allowing you to grab then fling him telekinetically toward the ceiling of the dome. It cracks as he strikes it but holds, the lizard groaning at the pain but dodging barely in time as you slash with Kyn'tk forming a long bladed sword and gouging a deep cut in the meter thick glass.Launching himself at you once more you guard with your shield only for it to warp and crack as he unleashes a pillar of blue flames from his maw, the violent flames charring your arm and bones.>cont
>>46285007Below the pair of Warbloods smash and sunder Reconstructed foolish enough to attack them in range of their mighty staves, their orange flames washing over the others. It was the few Cyclops you had brought with you to the Temple and rarely brought onto boarding operations that manage to turn the tide. A well-placed shot of explosive bone lodges itself into joint of a knee before detonating and crippling the lizard with a cry of pain.They are quickly swarmed by the Reconstructed, their weapon torn out of their grasp only to break the fingers of the Troll that tried to carry it as its weight increases exponentially and lands on the floor at the center of a dent in the stone. The other Warblood, spying its dying kin rushes forward with a scream of rage but they are run through by several Arc-spears, the Shock Trolls pouring their full strength into their weapons to cook the warblood from the inside out and dropping the smoking corpse.The ships commander watches his officers downed by the undead swarm they give their own bellow of anger and fury, the halo of solar flame flaring around him. The once finely controlled jets of flames emanating from his hands roar into chaotic life. The burnished metal of their helm glows with the heat and they stare at you with unbridled hate in their eyes before launching at you once more.Kyn'tk spreads itself thin, forming a spiraling shield of metal to guard yourself against the fierce onslaught that drives you back and scorches the armor of the Reconstructed below. The Albino Warblood becomes unto a sun himself, flames licking off his body and armor in his pursuit. It was all you could do to hold back his onslaught, the Reconstructed below firing at him but most of their rounds burn up as they get close to him or don't even phase him if they do strike.>cont
>>46285023Finally, as flames begin to engulf you as well you feel the presence of nearby power. With a shout you thrust out your hand and grasp the Albino by the throat. The flames char and scorch your armor and bones but the lizard finds himself unable to move, arrested by an invisible force. He struggles against you as you level Kyn'tk's point at him, eyes darting frantically until he spots the audience of Dirges and Requiems crowding every available inch of the dome. Their telekinetic strength join your own to hold the solar-blessed warrior in place as Kyn'tk's tines pierces flesh and scale.A shudder runs through you as Kyn'tk drinks deep of the ocean of solar fire at the Sunscales core, the flames spreading to engulf you both. It almost becomes too much and you are forced to drop the unconscious albino the ground below, Reconstructed swarming him to tear away armor and embed at least five of the domination spikes into their form.You hover above them, body burning and attempting to metabolize the Solar energy. The flames feel as if they will reduce your bones to ash and you feel the tips of your fingers and top layers of your armor crumble to dust. Kyn'tk twists and circles you like a concerned serpent as it helps you process the new source of power.After what felt like an eternity burning from the inside out you manage to turn the solar blaze into something manageable, a small flicker of flame at the core of your ribcage contained by a shell of Necrotic and Void power.Victory Complete!>Jadyk has become Solar-touchedLosses and Gains to be calculated
>>46285037Enslave the edgy lizards and the sunscale leader
>>46285037>unconscious albino the ground below, Reconstructed swarming him to tear away armor and embed at least five of the domination spikes into their form.Shit, did we get Sunny D, AND the lizard leader? Today was a good day. Time to go rub it in those jerkass blackscales faces.
>>46285065Also: loot those staves the warblood bodyguards were using, they seem magical and shit, we need to research them.
>>46285037And with that I must halt here for the night. Will likely pick this up tomorrow if the threads still up to do the Losses and Gains and chat up the Blackscale (might save that for next thread)I hope folks had fun, I know I did. Thread is archived, please vote for it if you can.I'll be up for a bit if anyone has any questions or troop/ship suggestions.
>>46285055That would be hilarious. Like they'd both be trying to kill each other so badly but every time they get close to attempting it they experience the overwhelming agony of the domination spike. Hell, that's practically karmic!
>>46285082Y'know, with solar power we probably look like ghost rider.>>46285085Thanks for running! It was nice to finally catch one of these live.
>>46285085Thanks for runing Jyoti, this was a fun one. Regarding troop/ship suggestions, now that we've brought our resource extraction to within sight of the 1,000,000 units per turn mark, the primary limiting factor on the growth of the armada is our low number of pylons. I'd like to suggest we address that.Build 10 small craft pylons: 8000B 6000MBuild 20 subcapitol pylons: 20000B 16000MBuild 15 capitol pylons: 22500B 18000MConstruct 7 biomass farms: 142100B 38500M3 Void Destroyers: 1020B 2550M
>>46285093>Y'know, with solar power we probably look like ghost rider.Even more so than Lorgul, and he's already a flaming skeleton! Welcome to the quest, glad to have you anon.
>>46285093Glad you could join us!
>>46285085Now, just so folks arent too shocked when I put up the losses, remember that despite the amazing rolls and nat 100 these are the Sunscale you fought.In the Galaxy only the Crystal enhanced Wasps are as effective undead killers.
>>46285188That you know of
>>46285188Well at least now we can develop an effective means of countering them. I can't wait to start reverse engineering their tech. The look on their faces when we start deploying undead using the very element that is supposed to be anathema to them will be priceless.
I wonder if the Blackscale know how to reanimate Sunscale. I want undead fire-breathing lizards on our side
>>46285085Thanks for running! This thread was pretty epic. Looking forward to the next thread!
So the lava fathers's moon has a sister that they are currently mining right? What if, after they sick her dry we make her into a second and much larger deep rot
>>46285037You know, I'm really looking forward to our male Akham and Albino sunscale slaves meeting for the first time. I imagine there will be much surprised swearing involved.
>>46285354Of the many moons surrounding the jovian world that the Lavafather orbits there are two metal rich moons.One is currently the site of several of your mining depots while the other houses the Lavafathers larger shipyards and extensive mining operations.
>>46285116Now that we have income of almost 1 million, we should aim for 2,then for 4, then 8, etc I approve the idea of building more pylons, but I think we should build even more of them. >>46285055>>46285092I say we try to reconstruct the sunscale leader. No interrogation, no nothing. Just turn the fucker into solar-touched hero. We should use solar attuned glutton spheres around the cauldron when doing this and also try to do it in the Deep Rot
>>46286448i have a different suggestion, first we question him, then we take him on a tour to see how we operate, how our materials are environmentally friendly etc and how we treat our prisoners. All the while pointing out, we don't go looking for fights but if the instigater is unreasonable we are more then happy to unleash a can of antediluvian whoop assonce again awesome quest, love your work Gravealso... a sneak peak
>>46286619Dang bro, nice artwork.
>>46286619Everytime with that delicious OC, Mr Smiles
>>46286694>>46286914glad you enjoy it, heres an update on Jaydks armour with a different background in celebration of our new found solar powers
>>46287027>>46285037Exellent pic, by the way, anons were thinking of upgrading Jadyk's body at some point. Could you give us a pic of Jadyk as a Gywn-ish figure? Combining this solar fire with the power of death and the fire of the empty void just gives me such dark souls vibes .
>>46287791no promises but il see what i can do, I am not done with the image but this is all i got done tonight.
>>46286448Yeah we make him a hero unit and Enslave the rest
sheeiiiiti missed the thread
>>46287791You forgot to mention the Arc-Lightning, and possibly, if the Lavafather doesn't mind, his powers over Fire.
Y'know, considering that we have on obsession with integrating new forms of power into Jadyk, it would be safer to just draw him as a skeleton in an amazing technicolor nightmare cloak.
>>46289217We have generals for that. Division of labour exists for a reason, and we it's better we get stronger with our existng powers than keeping adding to them. We can research them anyway if our general's possess then.
>>46289245>technicolor nightmare cloak.Anon you have made me moist with arousal
>>46290005>be sunscale>aim telescope at recently destroyed fleet>see jaydk lich-lord >rainbow cloak Fucking everywhere
>>46290117>>46290005>>46289245In my head, I'm now imagining Sauron / Witch-King of Angmar with a technicolor nightmare cloak.
>>46290140One spike to rule them all and in the darkness party
Just need to keep it alive a few more hours, then hopefully Grave will return and we can sort out what delicious loot we have obtained.
>>46286619>>46287027>>46287880Love your work Smiles. Keep it up>>46291214Finally awake, I'm gonna make a list of possible loot and do the losses and gains in a bit here. Because we're already close to bump limit we'll save the chat with the Blackscales for next thread
>>46291943 Is the next thread going to be today?
>>46291943At a guess, that 'sun' that seems to be central to the battleship should be interesting to poke. Ready the Think Tanks.
>>46291980Thursday as normal
Build 22 biomass farms and 15 mining facilities. Build 10 Omega fleets and 20 Reaper fleets Build shitton more construction pylons (enough to build hundreds of mining fleets at once)

Believed to be the Sunscale ships power source, engines and FTL al in one.>Shaker Shield: Medium - A shield of simple metal once again covered in blocky Sunscale runes. Similar to Vibroweapons they are meant to be a defensive and offensive device, Shaker Shields vibrate at extreme speeds capable of breaking or shattering weapons that strike it or using its edge similar to a powerful vibrobalde>Ravager Blade: Slow - Shortbladed swords once again covered in runes, these blades extend to longer lengths as they're swung or stabbed, creating an unpredictable attacks
>>46293525That is a LOT of loot.
>>46293697First time you folks rolled well for looting
>>46293734So we're converting the battleship yeah?
>>46293734We've rolled 100 for looting before. I should know since I rolled it. The results weren't nearly as impressive as these. But then again, the enemy wasn't as great at these.
>>46294230Oh yeah, forgot about that. But yeah, this was a big fleet with some big ships and the nat 100 for boarding meant you captured a lot
suggestions for troops or ships?
>>46295006I got one. First we need to replace our loses from this battle, and build more pylons to build said ships on. Pretty sure almost all of our sub-capitol and capitol pylons are already occupied right now and we need to expand our ship production capacity.>1 Battlecruiser: 200B 850M>5 Heavy Cruisers: 450B 2650M>4 Light Cruisers: 320B 1680M>14 Frigates: 840B 3500M>24 Corvettes: 1080B 8400M>135 Nails: 1350B 7425M>550 Talons: 2750B>400 Stingers: 2000B 800M>150 Trolls: 1800B 450M>220 Shock Trolls: 3960B 3960M>15 Looms: 270B 75M>8 Shadows: 72B 96M>25 Flatbody Gargoyles: 100B 25M>45 Stalkers: 180B 180M>2 Demi-Think Tanks: 10B 10MConstruct 7 biomass farms: 142100B 38500MConstruct 5 mining facilities: 25000B 100000MBuild 10 small craft pylons: 8000B 6000MBuild 20 subcapitol pylons: 20000B 16000MBuild 15 capitol pylons: 22500B 18000M3 Void Destroyers: 1020B 2550MTotal Cost: 234002B 211151M
>>46295907go for it
>>46295907What we need is a manufacturer plant. Let's pick a lifeless rock and cover it in manufacturing equipment on top, right below that is bio farms. Ideally this planet will be next to a metal rich meteor belt
>>46296879Let horizon drop be our palace and city. The lava farthermost moon is his own The barren world close to the star is the dangerous research Somewhere near the meteor belt is manufactureA gas giant and its moons will be a space port, refueling hub, and ship storage The necrolite world will be the main living military baceAnd so on. Thus will the system Umbra be born. The heart of our empire
>>46296431Oh god you're right. Will we have to research them to make their design template?
>>46296431Devastator: At a hulking 35 meters long the Devastators are intended to fill ambush and siege roles on the battlefield. Almost more machine that Reconstructed it tunnels through stone and earth using a powerful thermal drill to melt and bore through obstacles. Meant to burrow under fortifications or into underground complexes when the Devastator surfaces its drill lifts up and a "mouth" opens to unleash the Reconstructed it carried inside, typically carrying a max of 20 soldiers. Far from defenseless, once surfaced several hatches open to reveal a single twin-linked heavy weapon mount on a turret on its back and a pair of twin-linked medium weapons on it's sides to provide cover. Cost: 200B 250M>>46295907Looks good.
Hard light constructs we forerunner now.But seriously inmagine it a city of bone and steal and gleaming lightShin mining radiant bridges intersecting towers where the living walk in wonder at the power and majesty if the wormstars generosity and splendor The jewel in the empires terrible and imposing crown
We give requiems and dirges hard light shields for "decorative" purposes and extra protection. Also I'm all for sharing this stuff with te lava fathe
>>46297719How finely can hard light be manipulated I wonder Imagine hard light torpedos filled with reconstructed. Imagine an Akham mouth open wide to attack only to be filled with heard light and choking on it
>>46297898Or the plants. Imagine what they would traid for that
>>46293734Can we study the sunscale runes
>>46297719lets build 50 devastators for now.10000B 12500M
>>46300199Can we make 100 manglers too? I really want to get a sampler of all possible large reconstructed units.
>>46297719Are you coming back or what
>>46295907What is it with these weak ass suggestions? Build 22 biomass farms, 15 mining facilities, 5 Omega fleets, 10 Reaper fleets and hundreds of construction pylons.
>>46301284Was he supposed to?
>>46303703Yeah he was supposed to come back after the total losses and gains
>>46303743He said that was a maybe. At least now we have something to look forward to at the start of the next thread.
>>46306498Undead, thank you very much. It is an important distinction.
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>46285037I should have worked on the other piece but this has been bouncing around in my head all day
>>46307014Ahaha holy shit this is perfect
>>46307014This is great
>>46307014Best part of that picture is totally that the second part can be reused for just about any enemy we face, too.
>>46307014>>46306921Jadyk doing like Bowie there but the spheres are each a ball of Necrotic, Void, and Solar energy
