Last time we got so much shit done it was almost sickening. We secured a farm and all its juicy moomoos, we killed rednecks, used all our eggs, Bitch slapped a bear as Twitch and Ox, Twitch got his ass kicked by a pissed off eagle and we molted Grimalkin into a Praetorian while Ox captured some dirty hippies. We named our lone Warrior Tiny and immediately kicked Doggo ass and immediately rewarded him with a Unique Mutation into our Alpha Warrior with a Height issue. You are> Grimalkin> Twitch> Ox> Bob> Tiny

>>1050054>> BobDig the holes
>>1050054> BobYup, we should give our hard-working boy to shine. With all the food available and the work he's been putting in, he should be ready to become the Hive Architect and start making some specialized rooms.Actually, what kind of abilities would the Architect have? Does he use acid spray to melt and mould stone, or does he have incredibly strong claws? He obviously should have increased intelligent, that's just a given.
>>1050112The Hive Architect can create advanced Biomechanical constructs and specialized rooms (inb4 bioship) and can trigger advanced Mutations.
>>1050134Sounds fun, looks like Bob got his work cut out for him.

>>1050134Oh, so is he necessary in order for Ox to reach full size? I just figured it was a pheromone/adaptation thing.We should start moving deeper into the ground, rather than building up. The earth can be our shelter, and we can use deep aquifers as a means of infiltrating other farms, and maybe even the colony itself.We should also be sure to give our future Warriors, Hunters, and Heavy Warriors protection from fire. It'll also make living underground a little easier.> Hive Entrance, you want to actually hunt something (take Tiny with you as backup, but leave the rest to tend the herd).> Find C-Sec worker, stealth capture, bring him back to the Hive. Study his tools and equipment, learn to make new stuff for the Hive.
>>1050221>>1050193Forgot to link back. Sorry.Also, when we make our first Praetorian, we should name him Giger, in honor of the holy father of Xenos.

>>1050221A hive architect is not neccessary for Ox's max size mutation. A hive architect allows advanced and unique mutations and the construction of Biomechanical constructs (weapons/Bioconstructs/etc)
> Food pileYou make your way through the tunnels towards the hives communal food pile, you deftly sidestep as Twitch and a minion drone race by, bounding from the walls and ceiling as they race each other. Twits. Why play when there is glorious construction to do? You idly inspect a crack in the wall and spit a glob of resin at it, sealing it permanently. You pause, puzzled. You arent sure you could do that before. Its almost as if youve gained new abilities.> Xenoqm rapidly repairs cracks in 4th wallNah. Thats ridiculous.You make the last turn into the food storage room, chittering a greeting to the ever obedient minion drone who keeps it well stocked with dog and prey from the eastern forests. You snag a large deer and dig in. Filling your belly with delicious meat.> Bob is 75% of the way to Builder class> what to do?> write in a hive improvement> Other
>>1050291Can you give me some examples?
>>1050396build up home base's defenses by putting hidden tunnels and cubbies through the tunnels so our drones can hop out and surprise anyone who would dare attack our home. And maybe by putting hidden cubbies everywhere you'll always find somewhere to pass out when you get to tired that will be right next to your work so you can get right back at it when you wake up.

We should also expand underground, and turn natural cave systems into expansions for the Hive.> Craft a 'door' to the Hive out of resin, stone, and brush. The natural camouflage should trick all but the most cunning outsiders.> A wide, open, communal chamber where the Hive can come together and socialize, share information, and spar/train. Maybe in a place where water can collect, so we can swim for fun (or training in marine hunts and combat).
>>1050459> Craft a 'door' to the Hive out of resin, stone, and brush. The natural camouflage should trick all but the most cunning outsiders.let's go for that
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>1050396Expand hive tunnels into damaged portion.Grab a buddy.After gaining more ground. Making a royal chamber could be good. We'll need the room for eggs and what not.Maybe some kinda bio machine to fog up the place. Gaining us cover and masking stuff. Add to this if we super size it and make tunnels to targets we could cover an area to hide our actions.

>>1050537let's build that recovery room thing seeing how since our numbers are so small and we're still a bit of a ways away before we can get a queen it might be a good idea to make something that keeps our drones alive and back on their feet faster.
>>1050648I support this course of action.
> so far the consensus seems to be camoflage the hive entranceYou take a moment to marvel at your new form. You stand as tall as a warrior but stockier in the legs and shoulders, a thick and strong set of arms and claws are at your disposal while a smaller, more slender and dextrous pair emerge from your chest. Your tailblade is a spade like tool suited for smearing resin and gouging rock and earth.You would be giddy with excitement if that wasnt horribly inefficient. Instead you ponder all the glorious construction you could accomplish. You could build your glorious leader a proper throne room. You could build a Shaping chamber to equip your hivemates with Biomechanical improvements and weapons. You could even build a basic Healing chamber to speed the recovery of wounded Hivemates.What are you talking about? Improvements count for nothing if some filthy transgressor could enter your hive!You set off toward the hive entrance, designs already dancing in your head.

Hes impeding your precious workspace with his bulk!The colossal warrior hauls himself to to his feet and lumbers off, probably to go eat a dozen cows. Or chew a rock. You dont care.

It will open to receive only members of your hive! Get past THIS invaders!Once the internal structure of the door has been crafted you set to work on the camoflaging aspect.

>>1050968> Recruit a minion, go dig a tunnel to the north.If we can find any caves, aquifers, or even sewers under the colony, we can use it to infiltrate and kidnap humans.

>>1050968What about the molts and the eggs/facehuggers we have lying around? Could we turn them into some sort of base ingredient that would speed up construction/help in finding strains to add? Or could be turned into Royal Jelly for kickstarting the Queen transformation?
>>1050981Yeah getting faster travel to food will help. Then we can start egging up different animals.
can we get our own xeno culture going?i hate when people think of them as animals.like sure they cant realy not eat people but come on.maby. instead of killing all the dogs (cows make us stupid) we breed them and we wont have to worry about that?i kind of want to meet another hive and do diplomacy alien style. cuddling them into submission. or queen to queen combat/play fightactually when we become a empress, (i think that's what the super queens are called) can we have some daughters to make there own hive?
>>1051124Maybe with enough investment in improving the hive's intelligence our xenos might as well turn into the Engineers 2.0 within a few generations.
>>1051165god nowe are a race of cat like, hive minded monsters and it's going to stay that way.EXCEPT when dealing with other hives.also are we bugs or what?
>>1051124We've already got a small herd. All we have to do is expand on that, let the herd grow, and only cull the old, sick and weak. And if we continue to raid the colony's farms and ranches, we'll have more than enough beef there to support our budding Hive.As for the dogs, I doubt Tiny would allow them anywhere near the hive. We'll just catch wild ones or human pets when we want to hatch more runners.It's very unlikely that there were /two/ hidden egg chambers, kept hidden for probably centuries. If there was another growing Hive somewhere on the Hive, we would have to be careful. They might fight us over the rights to the cows. And even if we could establish peaceful communication with them, there's still be the problem of who is the top Queen. >>1051165No.>>1051193The Xenos are roughly 40% bug, particularly army ants or wasps. We /do/ call ourselves the Hive for a reason.The other 60% is rape-murder and hate.
>Recruit a minion, Dig tunnel to eastern hunting groundsWith a mental order from you the idle minion ceases his playing with Twitch and hurries to meet you at the easternmost of your tunnels. You meet him there, already sharpening your claws for their imminet work. The minions brief flash of regret would make you smile if you could as you direct him to shifting the rocks you pry from the soft tunnel side.> timeskip to tunnel completion> switch to _______?
>>1051233>Switch to Grimalkin
>>1051233> Switch to Twitch.> Explore the east some more!
>>1051233Let's go back to our queen. Haven't played as her in a while.
>>1051233Also, can we take Tiny with us, whoever we choose to be? Twitch and Ox are buddies, but the poor little Alpha-Warrior is lonely.
>>1051233>>Switch to Grimalkinshe better be cuddling people.how common is the cuddling in our hive? other hives?what ever the answer it isn't enough
> Switch to GrimalkinYou rouse yourself from your rest, taking a moment to gently scoop the sleeping Tiny from your back. You push a tightly curled minion drone from your foreleg and stand up. There are important things to do after all, you (regrettably) cant spend all day in the cuddle pile!> go Hunting> wake all idle Hive members (Ox, Tiny, Twitch, 1 minion drone) order food. Lots of it (Molt to queen)> inspect corpse of Mother (may reveal cause of death)
>>1051124>i kind of want to meet another hive and do diplomacy alien styleYou know that Queens are berserker tier angry and violent to other Queens, right? Usually they just kill each other and move on, rarely they beat the shit out of each other and rule over the weaker queens. There's a drug made from Xeno Royal Jelly called "Xeno-zip" and various other chemicals that people can use to get swole, unfortunately it makes any Xenos that meet the people who take it to go totally fuckass mad and kill them at least five times harder than they need to, to the point of brutally mutilating the corpse into mush. I guess the only reason Queens sometimes beat each other into submission and not into paste is because Queens are much smarter than the lesser Xenos they command.They don't play nice.
>>1051371> go Hunting> wake all idle Hive members (Ox, Tiny, Twitch, 1 minion drone) order food. Lots of it (Molt to queen)lets mix these two so we can hunt as one beautiful monstosity
>>1051375who the fuck is dumb enough to do zeno-zip though?what about the empress? what would she think of other queens and what not
>>1051371> inspect the corpse of MotherWe /do/ need to know just what in the hell killed a fucking Queen Xeno. The only explanation I can think of that doesn't involve Predators is a fucking volcanic eruption.>>1051375That's about the size of it, really. You see the same behavior in some ant colonies. An older, stronger queen with some daughters who have established smaller colonies within her territory may allow them to remain, but if they get uppity, she has no problem ordering their death.
>>1051371> inspect corpse of Mother (may reveal cause of death)
>>1051406 do the words "it's the only way to be sure" mean anything to you?also in the game they made, in the marine mode you kill it with lots and lots of fire
>>1051405>who the fuck is dumb enough to do zeno-zip though?It is an INCREDIBLY powerful performance enhancer, ludicrously so. It is very appealing in the correct dosage.And the Empress is literally just a Queen who decided not to murder her distant siblings to death but instead tell them to sit down and do her shit for her. She's not a different caste of xeno if that's what you're wondering.Also fun note, hydrofluoric acid can burn xenos.
>>1051371> wake all idle Hive members (Ox, Tiny, Twitch, 1 minion drone) order food. Lots of it (Molt to queen)
>>1051371>> inspect corpse of Mother (may reveal cause of death)
>>1051371>> inspect corpse of Mother (may reveal cause of death)knowledge is power.
Thinking about it, the previous queen here has probably been dead for a long time since it was some random chucklefuck who found Grimalkin's egg and not a marine or scientist. Or it was Predators on a hunt to get some status. This means it was either a small Hive since people are around and not all dead or swarming with USCM dudes or again she's been dead for a while.
> Inspect corpse of MotherYou turn your eyelss gaze to the titanic mummified corpse above you. The chitin is cracked and split from the relentless march of centuries. Her majestic headcrest shattered and torn by some colossal force. Her Throne and egg sac crushed and ground to myriad chunks and dust.You snuffle closer and clamber gently and respectfully onto her bulk. A glint of metal in her claws caught your eye. You draw closer and pluck from the ancient grasp a Mask of some light, surprsingly untarnished metal, its surface scored by a massive claw and a ornate symbol burned into the forehead. You return the relic and continue your inspection. Smaller, sharp bits of metal pierced Mothers carapace in places, pinpricks to a queen her size. A long slender shaft of of metal had pierced her throat and remained there still. Her carapace seemed... warped on one side, as if a unimaginable heat has struck her for a moment. Perhaps this is what had damaged the hive as well?> Mother was killed by a predator strike team. The lead Hunter wounded her gravely but, sensing defeat set off his honor device, incinerating the hive. Predators believe your hive is dead. Their presence is unlikely at this time.> what do?> FOOD!

> FEED MEYou contemplate your new form for a moment, regretting you never used it in battle. Oh well, duty before pleasure. You can always ASSUME DIRECT CONTROL and lead your children from safety. Your mind made up you send a mental screech throughout the hivemind. Everyone not working, bring food. NOW!Your hivemates spring into action, rushing to do your bidding and keep themselves off the menu. Twitch leaps onto Ox's back and the the Heavy Warrior actually breaks into a gallop with Tiny and a minion following close behind. You recieve a mental note from your shepherd drone, many of your female cows are pregnant and it would be unwise to consume them. You agree and redirect your Eager hivemates to the Eastern hunting grounds as you start piling various carcasses from the food pile. You tear in voraciously and lose yourself in a blur of hungerGrimalkin is molting into a Queen!> fast forward to cocoon stage You are _______?
>>1051722oxlife is good as ox. (i kinda want him to be uncle iroh)
> You are OxYou REALLY need a nap. Youve been running food to Grimalkin for hours and you havent put this much effort into anything in... ever. Twitch snores lightly from your back and you resist the urge to flop onto your back and use him as a pillow. You work well as a team and you wouldnt want to have to put up with Tiny, he always seems slightly hostile to you. Maybe its because you used his head as a leg rest and kept him pinned for nearly two days. It was a power nap, honestly. > what to do?> Scout colony with Twitch> Investigate southern mountains> visit Abel farms > Other

>>1051949Never mind! Brushwood beating me to the punch.> Play with siblings, nap, visit farm, make sure its still undiscoveredYou step up to the hive entrance, giving it a moment to register your presence with its sensors. It springs open suddenly, revealing the dark, damp tunnels inside. Ahhh home. You step inside and the door slides shut behind You. With a small flush of pleasure you note Bob left a decently sized alcove just to the side of the interior plenty large enough to fit you. He left you a nappinh spot by the door! That thoughtful fuck.You make your way to the communal resting chamber, presided over by the Ancient Mother. You take a moment to bow your head in respect to the enormous fallen queen before you advance toward the cuddle pile.They went to sleep before you! This will not stand! If you cant sleep, they cant either. > Belly flop!> Roar next to their heads. Alarm clocks are always nice> Fling Twitch at them

> Fling Twitch at themYou know, Twitch DID fall asleep before you. So he technically should be included in this punishment. You curve your head around and gently grasp his tail in your jaws. He stirs slightly, raising his head in curiosity. You whip you head around in a blur of motion, releasing Twitch at just the right moment to send him into a high arc. His squeal of surprise echoes off the walls as he comes down into the center of the cuddle pile like a flailing meteor.Tiny, Bob, and 2 Minion Drones flail around in confusion wondering where the attack came from. You try your best to look innocent as they all gather around the stunned twitch. They seem to be heaping the blame on him> all clumped up like that theyre a nice target for a....

> BELLY FLOPThey blame Twitch for this? Oh those poor naive fools. They will learn from their mistakes. You charge forward as fast as you can, your massive bulk shaking the floor as you reach full speed in a deceptively short distance.You leap with a roar of joy as Bob hauls Twitch up by his tail, shaking him gently in adminishment. The group looks at you in surprise, the amount of sheer terror filling the hivemind warms your heart as you impact the group like a malevolent wrecking ballYou sprawl atop a pile of subdued and pinned hivemates, Bob complaining thoroughly that now he cant get ANYTHING done, Twitch jabbing his tail against your foot with a pleasant *tink* in an attempt to get you to release him because hes so very sorry, Tiny vowing eternal vengeance and the minions just lay in silent acceptance of their fate.Ahhh comfort. You drift off to sleep.Several hours(or possibly days) later you finally wake up and release your slightly flattened hivemates who immediately flee for freedom.Twitch growls at you slightly in a good natured way as he climbs onto your broad back.> what do?> Scout colony outskirts> visit Abel farms> visit hunting grounds> visit mountain range> other
>>1052283> visit mountain range>Tiny vows eternal vengeanceGod bless you Tiny.

>>1052283> Visit the mountain range.> Take Bob with you. Poor boy needs to learn how to have some fun!If we find a mine of some sort, we can engineer a 'natural' disaster. Collapse the shaft entrance with the men inside, burrow our way in, then hunt to our hearts content. Just so long as we don't leave any survivors or evidence, it will just be jotted down as another terrible tragedy.
> Visit mountain rangeYou think back to the mountains a short distance to the south that Twitch found when he was assaulted by (as he says) 50 flying monsters the size of Queens. You send a questioning thought to Bob asking if he wants to come but he dismisses you with a explanation about load bearing struts and structural ability that makes your head hurt. > insist Bob comes.

I'm getting the feeling that what these xenomorphs are perceiving as "giant flying beasts" are actually just aircrafts/spacecrafts but who knows. Maybe in this unknown planet there are such creatures here.
> Hunt flying beasties. Restore Twitchs honorYou look up the mountain, where several dark shapes swoop through the sky and resting in nests of brush and bones. They dont look THAT big.

> Lucky 7!As a group you advance forward up the mountainside, twitch doing his nervous best to look tantalizing while you and Bob follow at a short distance. The first eagle swoops down toward twitch who squeaks in terror as a Bob spits a glob of high speed resin over his head. It impacts the Foul natured bird in the chest and spreads to his wings from the impact. The eagles majestic dive turns into a awkward flop as he bounces to a stop at your feet. THIS is what nearly tore twitch in half? Ugh hes helpless without you. You spit a large glob of resin onto the flailing bird and idly roll him to thoroughly coat him before you stick him onto your side. You cant return with just one so you direct twitch to look tasty and continue on.> several hours laterA barrage of indignant squaks accompanies you as you make your way back down the mountain. 7 large eagles stuck to your back and sides.

Her body is sturdy and plated in overlapping plates of barbed chitin. Her tail ends in a vicious blade the size of a drone. And is that.... the egg sac. Already it is gently pulsing, creating eggs for your hive. You, Twitch, Bob, The minions and Tiny all bow low and chitter softly in reverence.> Grimalkin is now a queen! You can now begin productiom of eggs (small and warrior are your only current varieties)Grimalkin-Queen25hp25pts armor+Enormous strength (can destroy light structures, barricades and armored vehicles+Devastating blows (kills human opponents with a single hit.

>>1052753So, if we upgrade Bob to architect could he come up with a reclamation pool like the nids were mutation strains can be researched and then added into Grim's egg production?
>>1052770> Bob - Workaholic Narcissist> WE MUST BUILD A THRONE WORTHY OF OUR QUEEN!!! And the eggs! They need a special chamber for their care! And...> Meanwhile, Twitch, Ox and Tiny are forming their own alien Megazord.
>>1052805I can't wait til we get a praetorian who is the biggest supremacist in the history of the universe and proves the superiority if his species by discussion philosophy with his victims before taking them home and knocking them up just like momma would want.
>>1052804Yes, this would allow you to alter Grimalkins egg production to produce Advanced/custom xenos in a limited amount.But OP must rest you guys. Ill return tomorrow around 4-5pm central time. Its been a bunch of fun running tonight you guys! Stay awesome!
>>1052843Thanks for running you champ. This is great for a first attempt at running quests. My only personal gripes are with the hug-piles and stuff but that's personal preference, you aren't writing poorly and others seem to enjoy it so c'est la vie.P.s due to some excellent fortune I'll be moving house this week so Pred Quest may have to wait a little longer. I'd say a week from now. Usually I wouldn't mention this sort of thing in someone elses quest but you seemed interested.
>>1053052Im just trying to give each Xeno their own personality while reminding everyone that they arent always brutally rape-murdering everything lol. Im glad you mostly enjoy it and thank you :)Take your time dude :) its all good haha just make sure you watch out for Fiss :P
>>1052843Hi. Been lurking these xeno threads and I just wanted to say thanks! This is great. I'm off tomorrow so maybe this anon can participate! Looking forward to part 4!
Thread will resume in 1-2 hours! Just check occassionally :)
>>1054541My only issue with the quest so far is how brief the updates are. But, then again, I've been spoiled, and this is your first.For example, consider lengthening your descriptions of the world around the Xenos and how they perceive it. More flavor is always nice.
>>1054581Noted, I try to be descriptive but I am posting from a phone thats prone to crashes and freezing so each post is a race against time. You might have noticed it sometimes takes me 30-40 mins for a few paragraphs. Thats because ill have to write it 2-3 times because my phone craps out on me. Ill see if I can pack in more detail :)
>>1054722Not sure if it's the same with your phone. I could copy all the text and it would save over when mine crashed. So I would save every time I got done with a few lines. Just by selet all and copy.
>>1054772Im probably going to start doing that. Ill restart the thread here shortly once I finish updating the pastebin. I think you guys will like itttttt :D
>>1052827The Praetorian will be an absolute gentleman. The honorable knight to Tiny's raging berserker or Twitch's ninja. He might let the enemy arm themselves first, maybe even let them draw first blood before ripping them apart.
> You are TinyYou stand vigil in the dim light of the hives interior, your long tail twitching and occasionally splitting into three coiling spears before seamlessly joining together again. Otherwise you are as still as a statue as you regard the cluster of precious objects before you, Grimalkin snuffling them lovingly as Bob proclaims them perfect in every way.> Grimalkin has laid 5 eggs. 3 Small eggs, 2 warriors.

> Implant Eagle, Go visit Farm with TwitchYou reverently step forward, bowed low as you send forth your request for the egg. Grimalkin inclines her regal head slightly.Go. We will own the above AND the below.You tenderly scoop up a small egg, carrying it gently over to where the resin coated eagles adorn a section of wall. You spend some time inspecting them, you want the best for the first of your hives Flyers.A large, healthy, vicious looking eagle catches your eye. Your choice made you step forward as it screeches defiantly.The egg pops open and the facehugger leaps forth, rapidly subduing the large bird and inserting its proboscis> Eagle has been successfully implanted! Unique flyer "Starscream" will be statted upon his "birth"You send a mental request for twitch to meet you at the hive entrance to which he rapidly agrees. You lope carefully through the winding, resin coated tunnels, sidestepping Ox sleeping against a wall, his snores actually shaking the tunnel. Big idiot, hell regret jumping on you once you put on some mass.Twitch is curled expectantly at the hive entrance, somehow looking bored AND hyperactive. You set off from the Hive and head west, Toward Abel farms, the miles of desert and scrub brush falling away as you race each other through the fading light. Roll a d20 for the farm being undiscovered

Ugh, the Dice Gods are fickle as fuck.
> Double 13!!! Lets get spookyYou and twitch race each other past the docile herd of cattle your hive posseses, their numbers steadily growing as the cows drop their calves (46 cattle currently)You crest the final ridge that overlooks the sprawling abandoned farm. Twitch curls next to you, the last time he was here he assisted your glorious queen in its capture. You jab him with your tail and hiss. Just because he helped capture it doesn't mean he can sit this out damn it!You lope down the hill, inspecting the farm yard and barns. No traces of your hives resin or tracks remain. The pens and lots are broken but that seems more like panicked livestock than anything else to your eyes. Twitch climbs on top of the farmhouse roof and points with his tail proudly at the spot where he eviscerated a unlucky farmhand. Scavengers have cleaned every scrap of the mans flesh and torn organs. The vehicles are quite obviously damaged, tires and engines shredded and reduced to scrap.You enter the house cautiously and watch the Vermin who have infested the house scatter. Theyve trashed every inch of the house and devoured most traces of Grimalkins resinSuddenly a sharp flash of alarm reaches you from Twitch. A pair of lights and a dust cloud are headed toward the farm down the long dirt road. You have company> a col-sec patrol is investigating the missing farmhands at this isolated ranch.> what do? Write in.
>>1055392Hide in wait and ambush. More for the hive.
>>1055392Stealth mode.Observe them.
Thoughts on becoming a human and learning their ways? Twitch could totally dewit, become an infiltrator
>>1055420Fuck my life, I mean Tiny could totally dewit
>>1055392> Observe only. Patience. They have no evidence we were ever here.We do not yet have the numbers to overwhelm the colony, and eliminating this patrol will only alert Col-Sec that something is wrong.If we can learn mimicry/throwing voices though, we can totally make them think this place is haunted.
2 for observe, 2 for stealth ambush. Need a tie breaker people!
>>1055466Gotta remember to greentext.
> Stealthily observeTwitch flattens himself on the roof and immediately is unmistakable from the shadows around him. You step into the shadows between the vehicles and observe as the cruiser pulls closer and is thrown into park. Both doors open and two blue uniformed humans step out. The men pull flashlights from their belts and flick them on, sweeping them back and forth as they wander the property. They dont seem wary or threatened at all, Twitch creeps along the roof, shadowing the pairs movements."What do you think Steve?" Says one "5 idiot farmhands and three yokels up and vanish... and leave their cars?""No idea man, Maybe they went to go "live with nature" like those dumbass hippies we picked up last week"> The officers are approaching your hiding spot> relocate.

>>1055562I'm half tempted to say that we should leave some spooky scratches on the vehicle while they investigate the house, but that would attract too much attention.Maybe later though, when we start scouting the colony, we can try to mind fuck Col-Sec and the humans by making them think there's a serious haunting going on in multiple locations, or that there's an alien predator (not us, something native to the planet) prowling in the dark.

THIS FUCKING PLACE IS ABANDONED!!"Impressive. You slink away between the vehicles, concealing yourself under the porch. You watch the officers as they turn toward the barn, the beams of their flashlights noticeably shaking."Lets just wrap this shit up and get back to town O'Neil. This place is probably fucking haunted or some shit""Y-yeah you're right. Gomez doesnt pay us enough to deal with demons and shit"> Twitch has gained the voice mimicry ability.

>>1055638> Twitch has gained the voice mimicry ability. He can imitate human speech and with more human observation he will expand his vocabulary.It's spooktastic.> Have Twitch whisper again.> "Do you..want...to play?"> Tosses a human femur at a Col-Sec patrol.> Spooky kid laughter.> Tiny breaks windows, screeches, throws furniture.
>>1055653It can be a learned trait for advanced and unique units. Twitch can teach by example
>>1055661This. Let's scare the shit out of them.
>>1055638>> Have twitch scream again (say what? 3words max)>"I SEE YOU"
>>1055671Yes, and if someone else comes back, we should have a pile of human bones mixed in with the hay in the barn.Or maybe instead, we can dig a shallow grave near the house, and leave it disturbed enough that someone who finds it can easily uncover the bones.There's too many bones in the pit to belong to just the Abel family and their cowhands...And the voices...They know things...Names...
> LETS GET SPOOPYa devious plan forms in your mind and you send it to Twitch who chitters softly in excitement from the roof and he creeps into the open top floor and takes his position by a open closed window and readies his tail as you crawl into the living room and grasp a heavy chair, hurling it at the wall as Twitch shatters the window and screeches into the night"THEY.... ARE...... HEEEERRRREEE"He explodes into a whirlwind of motion, dashing around the upper floor, screeching and throwing furniture, shattering windows and releasing occassional rasping cackles.You mirror his movements on the ground floor, your strength shattering furniture and flinging a table through the front window. > OFFICERS ARE THOROUGHLY SPOOKERED"WHAT THE FUCK DUDE!?!?!?!

> 18! HORROR MOVIE CLICHE INCOMINGOfficers Steve and O'Neil rush by the house, toward their vehicle, gasping and white faced in terror. You halt your carnage of the interior for a moment as a scream of pain and a grisly crunch reach your ears from outside> officer O'Neil has tripped at the edge of the headlight illumination and broken his ankle."Steve!!!!

>>1055809> Grab his legs with our tail, drag him into the darkness.> Twitch screams "TIME FOR PLAY!!!"> We knock O'Neil out and carry him back to the Hive.As much fun as this has been, we need more hosts for our Hive.
Ah, If only this guy was the religious type. Then we could totally rip off 30 Days of Night.> "God?...No god."
>>1055809>Fuckin rape steve, we can't let him bring reinforcements
>>1055817I'm down for thisI mean, how much language could they really have picked up?
>>1055809On one hand I want to let them go but that is something that may cause security to come in force here before the hive is ready.On the other hand having a few more bodies is always nice but their disapearance may force the same security to send search and rescue teams looking for them.If we can learn to use their radio/phones we could call off any attempt to come up there with some bullshit that we, passing for Steve and O'Neil, are following tracts into the forest and that we'll report soon. This could give us a few more days to prepare a bigger ambush.
>>1055855I mean, we were gonna' get found out eventually, it's just a matter of moving the Queen, keeping the eggs safe, and being smart.
>>1055865>>1055855We don't even have to move the Queen. The Hive entrance is disguised, and as long as our drones watching the cows were hidden, there's no outside evidence of Xenomorphs.All they know is some soldier, high off his kite, found a haunted house and his buddy got lost.Eliminating the main forces of the local Col-Sec would be awesome, but we still need a lot more Xenos.So, on one hand, we can take both if these terrified idiots back to the Hive as hosts. Or, we can let one escape, and take the other back. OR we can let Steve escape, and snap O'Neil's neck to make it look like he fell. Maybe position his body at the bottom of some stairs or something?
> Drag O'Neil into the rapey darkness.You dart forward out of the house and circle around, twitch watching through your eyes in fascination. You creep forward toward O'Neil, the ginger officers left foot turned 90 degrees with white bone poking through. The smell of blood and piss heavy to you."Steve.... please man... help me! Please!!!!""Alright partner... I gotcha... just hold tight ok??"Crunching gravel signals the wary approach of Officer Steve. No. This human belongs to the hive now.You grab O'Neils ankle and crawl away as fast as you can. The screaming Col-sec officer gouging bloody trails into the dirt and gravel eith his fingernails"HELP MEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee......" his voice trails off into the distance as you drag him away.Twitch would grin in pleasure if he could as Officer Steve draws his sidearm and fires several rounds into the distance screaming his partners name in terror and anguish> Let him go, theyll never believe him> Screech something, lunge (d20+1)> OTHER
Rolled 5 + 1 (1d20 + 1)>>1055901> Screech something (d20+1)>Never come backkkk, We own thissss
>>1055865Yeah we'll get found out in the end but there's a lot we can do to get ahead when words finaly gets out.We're risking having 3 differents armies going down on us if things gets real.The Colonial Marines because they'll be the one the colonist calls first.Weyland Yutani because they'll tap into the Marines network, and Weyland will do about just anything to get their hands on xenos.And the most dangerous group of all, the Preds, if they catch the distress signal that a hive is on a planet that they sent someone to clear out a hive and that now have human settlers on it.At best the Marines and WeYu will duke it out while we pick stragglers from both side. But if the Preds get there at the same time?
>>1055911Shit, the attack requires the roll. Not the screech. Do you want to attack also or just screech?
>>1055901> OTHER> "Come..and..Seeee...."> Let him go, they'll never believe him.We have GOT to teach this shit to the rest of the Hive, even Ox.IF we keep O'Neil to be a host, after he dies we should take the head and leave it on the doorstep to the Abel house. If we don't use him as a host, just leave his mangled body parts hanging from the rafters of the barn.
>>1055940Let's go with this. Seconding.
>>1055932not a drawfag or even proficient at anything artistic but i had to do this
>>1056010It's a masterpiece.
>>1056010Well now we need to find a giant crab so we can implant it with Xenos.
> let him go, theyll never believe him.Officer Steve is an ashen faced wreck of a man. His uniform soaked with sweat and piss he squeezes off the rest of his clip in the vague direction O'Neil had been taken by some.... demon. He screams into the darkness "What are you!?!?! Where is O'Neil!?!?!"A rasping cackle from somewhere in the abandoned farm causes his balls to draw into his belly and sweat to feel like beads of ice"Come... and.... see..... Come... And.... seee..... COME.... AND .... SEEEEEEEEEE" the hellish shriek grows in volume and repeats over and over as the horrified officers mind begins to shatter. He leaps into his patrol car and speeds out the drive in reverse, demolishing tThe Abel familiy's mailboz on his way out.His only thought is to get away from this nightmare and off this damned rock.Twitch snorts. That went well. If only Ox coukdve seen that. His massive jaws could NEVER recreate that masterpiece> Twitch and Tiny have learned Psychological warfare.

>>1056130Tiny should become an Alpha Ripper, It was in the old Xbox game but it had scythes for weapons. and was a tank.
>>1056130Alright then, I suppose our boy is going to need a new name then.> Tiny and Twitch gorge to reach next mutation.We're going to need more drones too. Did we capture any more dogs?
> You are TwitchYou are currently assisting Tiny in Sealing the catatonic security officer to the wall of the queen chamber. He doesnt seem to enjoy the help. Grouch. You helped before and he was happy. Maybe you shouldn't have told Grimalkin that YOU had captured the human alone while Tiny had cowered in the hay pile. She was proud of you both. Thats what matters!> order something? > Bob to build/Do something (write in)> Tiny to go do something useful for once(Write in)> Ox, to do what? Wake up? Pshhhh (write in)> Go gorge yourself (triggers mutation, suggest class types/mutations from pastebin)

>>1056196>> Go gorge yourself (triggers mutation, suggest class types/mutations from pastebin)
>>1056228Yeah :) shadow is a prebuilt class but ill throw in some unique stats for our ninja boy. If anyone wants to create a unique class just throw it together with a description of Its appearance and ill balance it out :)
>>1056261Well building off the idea of a Ninja class, I'd like us to have some sort of spike or pin or razor thrower. Like, something we can use ever few hours.And padded footing.
If nobody has any objections im going to with> Gorge (mutate into Alpha Shadow class-Unique)Buéno?
>>1056310Give him Active Camo, and a Quill Launcher. Maybe some extra armor, just in case he gets caught in the open.
>>1056335Also make him thirty feet tall and have a dick made of chocolate that ejaculates money.
For Tiny, he could be a mix between a Praetorian and a Warrior, with sturdy armor and a strong offense. Though he still might need to gorge some before he'll be ready to mutate again.> Alpha Warlord; Large (9' tall, 16' long including tail), 15 hp, 12 pts armor.> Active Regeneration, Multiple Limbs, Ripping Claws, Triumphant Roar (basically gives a temporary bonus to any Xenos in open combat nearby) and maybe a Bladed Carapace.This way, he's set up perfectly for RIP AND TEAR, leading the swarm from the front lines. Too much though? It's up to you QM.As for Ox, I think he could do with a pair of Mighty Tusks (basically a bonus to charge attacks and dealing with tanks, walls and buildings) and a roar strong enough to break glass and stun or deafen unprotected humans. So, y'know, just imagine a Xeno T-Rex with elephant tusks.>>1056369I wish /I/ had a dick made of chocolate that ejaculated money.

Man we should have made a drone worker from a cow.Big diggin motherfucker. A walking Backhoe. Bulldozing piece of chitin.

You beat a hasty retreat once you're out of Bobs sight and head along a tunnel toward the Chanber of the fallen queen. Tiny spends a lot of time there for some reason. You enter the ancient space slowlly and fail to see Tiny anywhere near his usal spot of Vigilance at the Ancient corpses feet.A pebble.clinks off of your head and you jerk your gaze up. There he is, he seems to be digging himself an alcove near the ceilings apex. You spread your wings wide and jump upwards, driving air down you gain altitude, circling the chamber slowly you ascend to his new sleeping/vigil spotHe sends you a mental image as you land next to him, a image of the walls of this chamber filled with Hibernating warriors of great skill and ability, waiting for their services to be needed. He sees himself among them.... and you also if you work hard. Unlike most of thes twits. You both chitter in amusement before he looks at you questioningly. > do you need something little one?> take tiny with you.

> Divebomb practice?You send him a questioning thought. You, diving from the sky at full speed, savagely striking any prey he can drive out. He snorts softly, impressed at your idea. He sends you an image of a four legged canine being shredded along with a feeling of intense happiness.> Tiny will flush out dogs and you willl divebomb the ones that flee.You glide down from the chamber he had dug, he just leaps dow, rolling with the impact. Show off. He snorts at you dismissively.As you exit the Ancient queens chamber you spy a slight discoloration on the wall. It seems to be be shifting back and forth slowly. You inch your way closer as Tiny looks on curiously. You are almost close enough to touch the anomaly with your nose when it fades away. Revealing you were nose to nose with Twitch. He burbles happily and pads silently away, probably off to go brag to Ox. Or lie to Grimalkin according to Tiny.You make your way through the secure hive entrance, standing under open sky for the first time ever.

Your sharp eyes pick him out in the near complete darkness as he snuffles along, searching for the scents of wild dogs, precios few packs remain near the hive due to Tiny's "efforts". You know a solo hunting mission is how he earned the thick, healed cracks in his carapace and armor. He stops suddenly, creeping fforward and lashing a dog across the rear with his tail.> strafing run (slash)> Dive bomb! (Vicious tail slash)> pick it up, fly high, drop.

> you are starscreamTiny lashes a sleeping wild dog with his tail and the terrified animal boltd with a yelp. You can feel Tiny' vicious joy as he wait for your strike. You wont dissapoint. You fold your wings close to your body and dive, wind whistling past your carapace as you close om your target. You sink your claws into its hide and push down with your wings, hauling the terrified mutt high into the sky. The dogs yelps and struggles only grow stronger as you reach the point where think clouds gather and Tiny is a miniscule black dot. If the dog wants down, down he shall go. You release your gripA terrified howl arcs down from the heaven, ending in a wet *SPLAT* as the unfortunate dog impacts at terminal velocity. Tiny snorts loudly. Impressive. You proudly flex your claws and swoop overhead. > Starscream has gained the Basic wings perk. He can easily carry away small targets.

>>1057996seconding , let's train a bit more before risking getting detected
> WhyNotBoth?.jpegYou take a moment to ponder the possible uses of the wild canines as hosts. You send the thoights to Tiny informing him,regrettably, that you should capture some alive. He growls unhappily but agrees. You both set off into the desert night, you swooping gracefully through the air, Tiny snuffling along the ground.> roll a d10 for dogs captured alive.

> 6! You got yourelf a sled teamTiny repeats the process of before, creeping silently up to a sleeping dog in its den or alcove in a crevice and flushing it from cover. You swoop down from above like a terrible black shadow and hit it with a flying tackle. You pin the yelping dog and seal its legs together with resin.You drag it to a flat rock where Tiny sits atop 5 whining bundles. This was your success. You present the new hosts to the Queen. Shell appreciate it. Also youll drag them back because hes got things to do in that colony.A familiar dimunitive form fades into view next to him and burbles a greeting. They've got scouting to do and as the resident infiltrators you just arent qualified.> Starscream has gained favor with Grimalkin.> 6 dog hosts have been captured> you are?> Twitch> Tiny

> you are Tiny. "A little shorter than average" just isnt a good nameYou watch the grumbling Gargoyle start dragging away resin coated dogs and gesture for Twitch to follow you. The excitable Shadow immediately leaps up and uses your head as a springboard to gain a lead as you both race towards the colony. Its finally time to infiltrate it and learn of the human inhabitants.You come over a small hill and gaze into the human colony as Twitch fades in and out of view next to you.You see a group of several small human residences grouped near a lager human building with a large red + above the entrance. You also see a mid sized, secure looking building with several of those Blue uniformed humans standing in front. There appears to be a smaller human building off to the outskirts of town. Several humans in reflective vests are gathered outside of it. Small human residences are scattered through he town with a larger, official looking one in he exact center.> investigate hospital> investigate Waste treatment area> investigate Col-sec office> investigate the mayors office> other
>>1058190>> investigate the mayors office
>>1058190> Investigate the Waste treatment area.Depending on how they managed their trash, we might be able to use this to further infiltrate the colony. I wouldn't do Col-Sec or the Hospital just yet, simply because there are hundreds of humans and only two of us.We should keep our eyes open for an entrance to the sewers. Then, we can plan to build a tunnel from the Hive into the city.
>>1058190> investigate Col-sec office

>Investigate the Waste treatment areaPossible infiltration point
> sorry for the late reply, things have been hectic today but posting will be regular later tonight> inspect Waste treatment plantYou motion to the small building on the outskirts with your head, designating it as your target to Twitch. Your companion growls eagerly and the two of you drop to your bellies and crawl forward swiftly towards the vaguely stinking sturcture. The 2 humans in reflective vests never notice the malevolent shadows creeping towards them. You and Twitch circle the building noting points of entrance> The front door. 2 humans out front.> The roof may have a point of entrance> a open manhole in behind the building with a ladder descending> Small windows leading into 3 dark rooms and 1 illuminated> The waste treatment area is lightly illuminated, lightly staffed and full of noisy machinery.> what do?> Enter through the front door.

>>1058836> Subdue the humans out front, but don't enter the building. Resin them up, gag included, and drag them back into the grass.First things first. Don't want anyone who could come down behind us or spot us leaving with any captives.> Sewer EntranceWould we get a bonus to stealth when we're underground in the dark? Tight quarters might give us an advantage in close combat too, given we're stronger and faster than humans.Whatever vote wins, we should capture any and all humans we come across, rather than kill. We have our specialists, but still need more hosts for the next generation of drones and warriors.
Plumber here warning you treatment plants are death traps, the pipes are fully of maserators and filter blenders and the water pools are so oxidised you can't swim and can only sink.Otherwise wannabe pick people off stage an accident
>>1058977Good thing xenos are way more physically capable than humans in every way.Except having nice, soft skin.
>>1058977GET YOUR DETAILS AND REALITY OUT OF MY DAMN QUEST >:OI wasnt actually aware of that though. Good on ya :)
Posting will recommence when I get off work :) im off for the next 2 days so tonights posting will continue until 2am. It will recommence again the following afternoon around 1-2pm and continue all day until I cannot stay awake.Feel free to leave ideas for classes, hive construction, weapons, stats, hopes and dreams, what have you.You guys are awesome!
> Sewer entrance?Still want to avoid detection. Next step after scouting should be make more fliers. Evo them with stelth active camo speach and physiological warfare. Make the town tear itself apart without humans even realizing xenoes exist.
>>1058977Why not just go in , clog shit with resin and then bail?Sabotage is almost as fun as actual abductions and murders.
>>1059390>dropping resin in a facility where they will go to investigate very quickly>where if the people disappear they will actually make an effort to find>and if those search parties disappear they will call in the big guns>or if they find the resin they will confirm there are xenos and then call in the really big gunsI'd rather not.
Some ideas for mutations:Self-igniting blood combined with heat resistance (good in melee, also: all wounds cauterize themselves)A "healer"- mutation: the Xenomorph`s spit gets healing properties.A "digester" mutation (maybe combine this with healer): intstead of resin the Xenomorph has nutritious vomit. The predigestion saves precious time for our other specialized members.Spikes: Melee attackers have a chance of damaging themselvesMetabolic overclock: The Xenomorph can enter a frenzy, when it gets enhanced speed and strength. Damaging to the Xenomorph (ideal for our self-hating member?)Tendrils: from each of the shoulder blades, three long tendrils grow. These can be used in melee, especially when grappling/subduing an opponent.
Hey OP what happened to the three stoners ox captured last thread?
>>1060497Never happened. It was all a bad trip maaaaaan.
> I didnt get home until after my cut off time for the thread so to make it up to you guys I WILL be running this thread all damn day! OP shall not be a fgt!> sewer crawling. Grab your purell.You and Twitch both peer down into the manhole entrance. You look at each other Twitch hisses andbacks up a step. You first. You gesture for him to look again and after some hesitation he peers back down into the sewer. You promptly grab his head and a rear leg and push him in head first. A thick splash echoes up a few seconds later along with a annoyed hiss. You snort in amusement and follow him down, albeit slower.> the tunnel continues on behind you toward the treatment plant.> the tunnel is unilluminated> The manhole was open. You may have company. > Continue forward, inspect sewers.> Search for a spot to start digging a tunnel.> Hunt down sewer worker. Subdue/Terrorize/Murder/?> Other

>>1060531>Hunt down sewer worker.>Subdue
> Hunt down sewer worker. Subdue.A faint clink of metal somewhere down the tunnel line causes you both to freeze. You are not alone down here. You both clamber onto the walls and crawl along. Keeping yourselves flat and low you rapidly come up to a fork. > Go left, water level deepens. Maybe hes fixing a clog?> Go right. Water level goes down but theres some machinery down that way.
>>1060556> Go left, water level deepens. Maybe hes fixing a clog?
>>1060556> Go rightMaybe he is repairing the machinery?
>>1060556>> Go left, water level deepens. Maybe hes fixing a clog?
>left we go. Who knows how to swim? Twitch takes advantage of his small size and climbimg ability and flattens himself against the ceiling while you slip into the rapidly deepening water. You both advance forward toward the metallic thunks and light splashes. You see through Twitches eyes as a human in a reflective vest and illuminated hardhat comes into view. He is "fixing" a small machine attached to a pipe in the wall. The way hes smacking it with a hammer suggests its not going well. You amd Twitch take a moment to convene. > what do?> tackle him and subdue (missing person)> Drag him into the water. Drown him. (Workplace accident)> Kill him, hide the body under water.

> How long can you hold your breath m8?Twitch scurries forward until he's directly above the oblivious sewer worker, the man grunting with effort as he beats the defenseless filter. The only indication of your presence is a slight ripple in the water as you advance to be directly behind him. The man pauses, taking a moment to wipe the sweat from his brow and stretch his back. The glow from his hardhat illuminates a slight variation in the ceiling and it catches his attention. "What the feckin 'ell is that?" Some kinda -"*WHACK*With a crunch of teeth the mans head is whipped back by the impact of Twitch' s tail. The sewer worker stumbles backward, swearing in pain as you surge out of the water and grab his arms, falling back in and sinking several feet to the bottom. The mans struggles and terrified shouts only serve to hasten the process as you regard him curiously. Your face inches from his.Less than a minute later the unfortunate sewer workers struggles slow and then cease altogether. You hold him down for another few minute to insure he hwas dead. As you release his body it gently floats, facedown, to the surface. You clamber out of the water and onto the platform while Twitch growls in approval.A slight hum sounds behind you as the filter kicks back on and runs perfectly.> workplace accident has been staged!

> Col-sec sewer access? Body dumping? Who knows....You go over the visual layout of the colony in your mind. The humans "defenders", if the inept and weak creatures could be called such, are based to the eastern side of the colony, in a mid sized, defensible looking building. You set off in that direction, following tunnel branches that lead in that direction.You come across several ladders leading up to the surface but dismiss them. They are for accessing the sewers from the colony streets.Several junctions later and backtracking your steps several times you come across a clue. A human weapon (pistol) in a plastic bag with the markings "E v I d e n C e" on it resting near several other such bags containing human clothes and small boxes > Col-sec sewer entrance has been located, used as a Evidence dump it is not guarded and lightly secured.> investigate other sewer entrances (where to)> Search for a good spot to dig a tunnel to the hive (will occuppy Twitch, Tiny, Bob and 1 minion)> other

Nature is a hell of a lot scarier than we give it credit.Also, would it be possible for the drones to pick up botany/mycology? It would be cool if we can develop another source of nutrition, and maybe even medicine, for the Hive.
>>1060941Hey, if all the criminals start vanishing it'd still be a bunch of people going poof. And criminals still have family/connections. It's not like everyone is going to stop and say "Oh look, no one has been stabbed this week" it'll be "Jesus Christ where are all the delinquents at?"
>>1060941But Ox-Tank eats air support
>>1060941I like the idea of the drones cultivating massive mushrooms with nutrient soaked resin so ill input a fungus chamber into the construction list.And your weapons are not only BASED on real life they are weaponized IMPROVMENTS on the original designs. Scary shit yo.

After a couple decades, they'd breed and raise children of their own, and we'd be building a population of willing human hosts.
> Hospital. Turn your head and hiss please.you decide to check for a way into the large building on the other side of town. Many humans seemed to be heading into and out of it while you observed before and some of themd sick and wounded. Perfect prey. You knock Twitch lightly on the head, stop playing with that rat. Eat it or let it go. He grumbles slightly and swallows it whole, matching your pace easily as you head in the general direction of the hospital.Youre glad for your species natural affinity for winding, chaotic tunnels as you easily find your way back to a main junction and set off again. Twitch scurries along the ceiling ahead of you, a shadow among shadows. He rounds the corner first and sends you a warning.

> 16! Good successYou regard the scene through Twitch's eyes. The humans are clustered near the door, 1 of them is hauling against the door with a crowbar as the other 2 stand watch with flashlights illuminating both directions of approach. The water in the middle of the pipe is not nearly deep enough to hide you. You reach a decision with Twitch and send him ahead to silently remove the addicts from your path. The eager shadow slowly creeps forward against the ceiling, fading from visibility as the dim beam of one junkies flashlight sweeps over him."Cmon Richie get that fucker open man" one of them says nervously"we need to get the shit!""Im....Fuckin'..... TRYING!!" The scrawny muscles in the Richie's arms stand out as he hauls with all his might. With a metallic pop he flies backward as the lock breaks amd the door springs open.*Fwip* *Fwip* (1/3 Quills remain)The dazed junky stands up shakily, rubbing his head blearily. Two flashlights roll along the ground. "Jimmy? Mike? Where you fuckers at?"he unclips a flashlight from his belt and flicks on the beam. He immediately recoils as he sees his two companions lay on the ground, 6 inch barbs of black chitin lodged in their throats. The veins around the puncture wounds are a dark, inky black, the junkys mouths dripping bloody foam as they twitched."Wha-...what the fucking SHI-"Richie never finishes his terrified scream as Twitch swings his tail blade down from the ceiling and buries it in his eye, the dripping point energing from the back of his head.You round the corner and hiss approvingly as Twitch leaps down from the ceiling.> Enter hospital (Twitch can enter air vents)> Search for a tunnelling spot> other

> Starting as Twitch. You ascend the dusty, grimy stone steps, headed upward to the hospital entrance. You bounce between walls and the ceiling as you employ your trademark speed, a black shadow blurring from one point to the next. You emerge from the abandoned staircase and look around nervously. The basement is full of larhe crates and plastic wrapped medical equipment. You spy a small grate on the corner of the ceiling and leap to it, yanking it open and crawling inside.> what do we search the hospital for?> MEANWHILE> You are TinyYou stride through murky, filmy water as it sloshes against your legs. The walls of this part of the sewer are covered in thick film of grime and algea. It seems this part of the sewer rarely, if ever, recieves visitors. Already, the bricks and pipes are falling apart.

> Twitch plays Hospital Vent crawler> Search for coma ward, Check roofYou crawl along the vents, bracing the slightly sticky pads of your feet allowing noiseless ascension. You occassionally peer through the vents to investigate what, exactly, this place is. You see several white clothed humans bustling about, escorting sick, weak or wounded humans between several small rooms. Another vent reveals a group of humans, elbow deep in the guts of another human, extracting organs and tissue for some purpose. While you appreciate the gruesomeness the pathetic creatures arent even eating any of it. You shake your head and continue on.A few vents down you snort slightly as you find a vent overlooking a storage room of some sort where two humans are engaged in some physical.... engagement. A blue and white set of human clothes are scattered around the room and the two humans appear to be wrestling for some reason. Weird. You scurry forward, searching for particularly weak humans. > Roll a d20 for possible coma ward> You are Tiny> search for comm unit/landing pads.You have a sudden epiphany. These humans are fond of calling for help when they are threatened. If you remove the ability for them to summon their warriors then they will be defenseless against you. You review your mental map of the city and emerge from a manhole in a poorly lit side street. You rapidly ascend the side of a building, using your natural sensitivity to radio waves and energy to pinpoint any clusters.> roll a d20 for location

That is NOT good.No less than 8 Col-Sec officers patrol the brightly illuminated grounds with who knows how many are inside.

Bob could also make a tunnel underneath the place, so we can ambush them within their own base.
> 16! FUCK YOUR HELICOPTER> you are TwitchYou advance closer to the strange human machine. The bubble is open so you leap inside and are immediately confronted by several complicated buttons and panels and switches. Oh well. Lets get started. You pry loose panels and rip away anything important looking. You smash the guages and rip away feet of wire, throwing it all into a bundle next to the machine. Once you judge it thoroughly gutted you leap out and carefully gather your pile of scrap and happily dump it down the open air vent, caredully reaffixing the top afterwards.

The warriors and Gargoyles can join up with Tiny and Starscream on an expedition back into the mountains, maybe practice the air drop for when we do our raid on the colony.
Does Ox have a unique mutation, or is he still just a simple Heavy Warrior?Our big boy needs to catch up with the other guys.
>>1063453It would require an architect 'morph and a pool of knowledge and maybe a shaping chamber if you want to add the proboscis on an existing xeno.
Our boys Ox and Starscream.
>>1063352Small eggs only make drones right? If so I'd say use the warrior eggs to make one flyer, one warrior, and two heavy warriors and then use the 4 bums for four drones since they still have a stealth bonus. Plan is the twitch will take out the colony's power and when the lights go out the two flyers will drop off the two warriors and they take out the comm tower. Our two heavy solders will come up through the sewer and attack from below while the normal warriors and flyers work their way down. Bob and the drones can hit the hospital and grab as many humans as they can while twitch hangs back to act as quick backup/ stop anyone from running.
>>1063558I still want to wait until we have more warrior eggs and small eggs, and the hosts for them. I at least want our Hive to number over thirty before we go on the attack.

And the house.I'm just concerned that if we charge in, well walk right into a trap and get burned badly, probably loose at least half the Hive.We should keep hunting in the forest, explore the mountains for any human activity, and look for more farms and ranches to raid. Capture all of those humans in just a few days, steal all the cattle that we'll need to support the population boom in the Hive, and THEN go on the attack.

Though, if he got that
>>1063728Have one of the drones begin molting into a builder so we can get Bob the Engineer ready for molting.
>>1063728I just realized that Tiny is going to be /pissed/.Even BOB is bigger than him, and he doesn't even do combat.
>>1063728>Switch to Grimalkin.>>1063747Don't worry he'll find a way to express his napoleon complex by forming a squad with the newly hatched and Proving that strengh in number is better than strengh alone.
>>1063747Yeah but Bob actually lifts. Tiny kind of just jumps and runs around flailing his arms at things. How uncivilized.
>>1063740>Ox might be super expensive to field in combat due to his appetite, so Bob and Grimalkin might keep him in hibernation until he's needed again. I actually rather like this idea. The big guy is lazy so it shouldn't be too hard to tell him to take a load off, though there's a chance that his laziness might make him develop a serious stubborn streak when it comes to listening to anyone beyond Grimalkin. Be worth it though when a bunch of humans think they have the upper hand as they chase off a few waves of xenos only to have Ox roll through and demonstrate precisely why you can't box the ox.

>>1063795> Tiny and Starscream will lead the Warriors and Gargoyles on a training mission in the mountains to capture more eagles, and if possible, locate any human presence.> Twitch will go out and attempt to find another farm or ranch with more cattle. The herd has proven invaluable to the growth of the Hive, and must be expanded to support future efforts.> Bob and his 'helpers' will either finish the tunnel to the human settlement, build a Shaping Chamber or a Nest of Healing. The Deep Tunnels are not yet needed.> Grimalkin will continue to dote on her precious babies and eat tasty cows.
I had an idea for when we assault the colony. If we get Bob and a couple of builders we could excavate the space beneath Comms tower, leaving only a few support pillars keeping the tower upright. As soon as we're ready to launch our attack we knock out the pillars bringing the whole tower down on itself, removing the problem all at once.
>>1063845That is an excellent idea, my friend.My reasoning is that, so long as there is not a separate Comms Tower elsewhere on the planet (say, at a Weyland-Yutani facility), we can do pretty much whatever the fuck we want. That's exactly why I want to explore the mountains further; I'm thinking there might be a mine we can seize, or a Weyland-Yutani base hidden among the peaks. I'd rather we take /that/ out before we invade the colony, just so it doesn't come back to bite us in the ass.
>>1063845if we get the generators and coms out we'd have a very good Shock and Awe factor, enough maybe to abduct shit loads of people while the main fighting force lure the response teams out.After that we'll have to incubate them and go on the defensive and try to lay low and hide to prepare for a second assault while harassing them enough to prevent any new coms being built.I think we're up for the task but we'll have to specialize in teams such as Abductors team, Shock team and Recon/harass.
> Deploy the troops!You take a moment to divvy out orders for your ever growing hive. Twitch shall venture out into the western grasslands to search for more ranches and farms. Tiny and Starscream will take the new warriors, Gargoyles and heavy warrior to the mountain range to train, hunt and explore. Bob will direct the 5 available drones to speed construction of the tunnel to the human colony.> Select a Hive member to assume direct control over. Roll 2d20 for the other guys
>>1063873We can also prepare for the imminent surge of human captives by having Grimalkin push out a big number of eggs. She'll be tired afterwards, cranky and hungry, but the boost will be enough.When those Runners molt, Twitch will have his own little cadre of Hunters, while Tiny will lead the Warriors. Starscream and the Gargoyles can harass and support, while Ox can be our surprise.What are the Hive numbers again? I think we've got almost fifteen Xenos now?

I have a strategy suggestion anons, let us learn of multiple settlements of humans, learn more of the area and if possible before we go all out. We don't wannabe get isolated or draw the Predators here...
>>1063896you're suggesting setting up multiple outposts?Could have it's utility if our hatchling production is sufficient. If it's not the Grimalkin will have to be i guess evolved a bit and it might require Bob's expertise.
>>1063893Noice rolls mate.>>1063896Yes. More information is never a bad thing. Though we also need more human hosts to hatch more Warriors.As for the Predators, they believe this planet to be clean, and so long as we don't allow any escape attempts off-world or calling for aid, we don't have to worry.
>>1063903Kind of yeah, have deep and hard to find tunnels branch out and lead to new hive locations...but under no circumstances lead directly to the Queen nest that remains incognito. That way if the tunnels are nuked the Queen is safe
>>1063890Do our warriors and gargoyles meet a real apex predator bird? Some sort of supercondor?

We have to send Bob out to the forest with a couple drones later, so he can collect plants and fungus, and start a Xeno Garden.
>>1063951Sure why not make a snuggle pit, I'm game
>>1063957The more you feed them, the more they can molt into more specialized forms or in Ox's case, just increasingly fuckhuge. But combat stress can influence their change
