>>4670178>Now, lets see where the hell I am. Last thing I remember... My name is Boss, and I was heroically trying to kill some monster while protecting Brother. And then he went all-out and transformed... And that's about it.>Oh, he tried messaging me while I was hibernating... I forget about what though. Probably was just telling me how cool I looked when I was fighting that monster.>Looks like I'm stuck in some warehouse now. Did I get captured while I was out? Doesn't seem like anyone's nearby. >Hah, I bet Brother and Eyre are totally worried about me. What fools they are, did they really expect someone as awesome as me to just sit around and get captured?>Now, where's my cape? Can't strike fear and admiration into my enemies without it.You pick up and wrap your cape around your neck, and strike a proud pose as you look around the seemingly abandoned warehouse. It's dark, but darkness means nothing for your robotic eyes. There are stacks and stacks of boxes which appear to just be holding supplies. Looking around, you find a door that probably leads out of the warehouse.>My captors are probably through that door. Now, time to run out of this room, and slaughter all of them while making my escape! This will be eas-Suddenly one of your internal warning systems go off, reminding you about the giant hole in your chest that damaged your main battery.>... Shit. Well, guess I'll have to make this escape quick, or maybe I could capture one of my captors and torture them into fixing me.>Let me review my equipment and make sure it's working. I have a extendable left arm which can act as a grappling hook, and I can make a blade pop out of my right arm.>Good, seems to be all working right. Now, lets see if this rational thought AI is useful.>Break down the door and rush out into the next room (2 minutes)>Search around the room and see if there's anything useful (5 minutes)>Wait by the door and attempt to scope out the next room (3 minutes)>Write in

>>4670196Thanks, sorry for the hiatus. I got busy with life stuff and had trouble figuring out what I should do with this quest, but then I thought about this idea for a Boss side-story and found my motivation.Hope players don't mind the shift in PoV. Also fair warning, this chapter will have a significantly higher difficulty than previous chapters. Good luck!
>>4670184>>4670196>>4670231>Maybe there's a battery somewhere in these boxes. I'll take a quick look.You begin searching through the boxes. However, you don't find much other than pieces of scrap metal, rations, and other random assorted supplies.>If there's a battery somewhere in here, it'll probably take too long to find it. None of these boxes are labeled either, in fact, some of them appear to have their labels ripped off. Weird.Right as you're about to give up on your search, you find a large piece of scrap metal with a handle on one side. You effortlessly pick it up.>Huh, this was probably used as a door for something. It's pretty hefty, and could probably withstand a laser shot or two. Well, it's mine now!You start heading to the door with your makeshift shield in hand. You notice the panel next to the door. It does nothing when you hit the buttons on it.>Guessing it's ID locked. I could always hack it, but that's boring. Lets do this the fun way!You take a few steps back, put your shield in front of you, and charge through the door!
>>4670330You break through the door into a room with a large monitor. Quickly assessing the situation, you see someone laying back and sleeping in a chair. Preparing for them to awake from the disturbance you caused, you take a fighting stance.>Right, once he wakes up, I'll gut him!>...>... Did... Did he really just sleep through me breaking through the door?!In astonishment, you slowly sneak towards the sleeping guard. They have their back turned to you, so you can't get a good look at them.>Well, this certainly makes things more boring. Guess I can behead him in his sleep.>... Or I could do the really BORING option of trying to talk him down. That's what Brother would always suggest...>Murder the sleeping guard before he wakes up (1 min)>Attempt to disarm and capture the sleeping guard (3 min)>Wake up the guard and ask him where we are (2 min)>Investigate the room (3 min)>Write in
>>4670334>>Investigate the room (3 min)veerrrry quietly
>>4670334>>4670337>... Fine, I'll investigate the room before doing anything rash.You quietly sneak over to the control panel below the giant monitor, and press a button labeled "Map". The monitor turns on, and reveals a basic map of the area. You try and press other buttons to gather more information, but you get locked out by a request for an ID.>Well, looks like I'm stuck in some sort of space station. If I had to guess, any robotic parts would probably be in the lab. I'm lucky that I didn't set off an alarm breaking down the door, and I assume all other doors here will require an ID as well. I could steal an ID from this lazy bastard, but he might wake up, and I'll have to kill him. Be better just to kill him first before he can wake up so I don't waste time with him struggling, even if that is boring.>Murder the sleeping guard before he wakes up and take his ID (1 min)>Attempt to steal the guard's ID without waking him up (2 min)>Attempt to disarm and capture the sleeping guard (3 min)>Wake up the guard and ask him where we are (2 min)>Head to the lab (1 min with ID)>Head to the mess hall (1 min with ID)>Write in

I would do one last update tonight but I'm tired, so I'll end it here for tonight. Next update will be tomorrow at 5 PM PST. Thanks for playing!>>4670449I completely forgot about rolls lmao, probably should've made some of the options rolls already, but oh well.
>>4670449+1, but shank him if he wakes up and tries anything
>>4670413>>4670449>>4670991>I hate to think it, but just stealing the ID is probably the best option here. Even though I'm confident I could end his life within seconds, I shouldn't take unnecessary risks with my power this low.You slowly sneak towards the sleeping guard, and notice what looks like an ID attached to his belt. Careful to not disturb him, you stealthily take their ID, and start making your way towards the lab. After a short dash through a empty hallway, you come to another door. You swipe the ID card against the panel next to the door, and it opens with a "ding" sound.You step into the dark lab, and the lights turn on as you step inside. In the middle of the room is what looks like a group of cryo-tubes, likely used to keeping life-forms in suspended animation. All of the tubes are empty aside from one, which appears to have some sort of aquatic-looking humanoid alien within it. A quick glance around the room shows that it's mostly full of tools for researching living organisms. >Fuck! This isn't a robotics lab, this looks like some lab for science experiments on living creatures. I'm running out of time, is there anything here of use?Doing another look around the room, you see what looks like a half-open wall panel. Upon closer inspection, it appears to be attached to a battery which is powering the room.>I could probably use some wires in here to hook myself up to this battery to charge myself a bit, but it'll probably make the room lose power and potentially set off an alarm...>Hook yourself up to the room's battery to charge yourself>Free the creature within the cryo-tube (2 min)>Do a deeper search of the room (3 min)>Go somewhere else (Write in)>Write in

>>4671268Charge ourselves for now. The creature looks like it lives underwater, idk if it will survive if we free it.
>>4671268>>4671292>>4671292>>4671306>>4671312>Why should I care about some stupid alien right now? I need to charge myself before I run out of power.You quickly hook up some of the wires poking out of the panel and attach them to some of wires sticking out of your chest that connect to your back-up battery. You slowly start to regain some power, and once you gain enough power to stay on for about 40 minutes, the lights and machinery in the room turn off.>Well, guess I drained this room of its power. This station must have a generator or something somewhere I can-Your thought is cut off by your audio sensors picking up the sound of a loud bang, followed by what sounds like glass shattering! You turn around to see that the creature within the tube has broken out and is lunging at you!>Block their lunge with your shield >Dodge out of the way (Will use up more power)>Prepare your blade and lunge back at them (Will use up more power)>Write in---------------------------All combat-related options will require rolling a 1d100, best of three rolls decides the value.

They let out a scream, and fall to the ground and roll a short distance away.

Why would someone as glorious as me need to bother sparing the life of a measly creature like this? I'm starting to think like Brother...>Well, I might as well give it a shot. Gotta speak in a way that makes me sound cool though, and not like a pacifist pushover like Brother.You lower your shield and proudly say, "Rejoice, pathetic creature! I have decided to grant you the chance to survive after your assault! If you leave me alone, I won't slash you to pieces with my robotic might. I might even let you follow me, if you don't get in my way of destruction."The creature looks up at you and tilts its head."Huh...? You're a robot? Aw, I was hoping to eat some of you! I've been so hungry being kept in that tube for so long!" The creature pats its stomach and you hear a low growl from it. "Well, I guess I'll go take a bite out of some of the humans that brought me here! Cya!" The alien gets up and starts walking toward the hallway.>... The hell? It just wanted food? What a bloodthirsty creature. Not that much different from the old group of bandits I used to rule over. Maybe I could trick them into helping me escape here. >Leave them alone and head back to the monitor room (1 min)>Attack them while their back is turned (Requires roll)>Ask them to stop and try to get them to help us (2 min)>Write in
>>4671599> We have to stay low, the humans have guns. If you do as I say, I’ll make sure that you get to eat something. But if you blow our cover, I will kill youThe creature will be very useful for us, but if we dont keep a tight leash it can fuck us over on accident. So we have to keep it in line
>>4671617Oh, and pull our arm-sword our when we say that last part
>>4671617>>4671599We have to stay low, the humans have guns. If you do as I say, I’ll make sure that you get to eat something. But if you blow our cover, I will kill you
>>4671599>>4671617>>4671623>>4671686"Wait." You say, as the creature turns around. "I think it would be beneficial for the both of us if we worked together. Any humans here likely have guns. If you do as I say, I'll make sure you get something to eat." A smile appears on the creature's face, which doesn't even go away when you unsheathe your arm blade. "But if you blow our cover, I will not hesitate to kill you.""Okay!" The creature jumps up happily and walks towards you. "My name is Elly! What's yours, mister robot?""You may call me Boss." "Wow, that's a cool name!">Heh, of course it is. Always good to get some respect. Thankfully this creature appears to be pretty stupid, so it'll probably follow my orders without hesitation, as long as I can promise it food. "Now, lets get moving. I don't have time to waste." Elly nods, and you exit the room and start heading towards the hallway. Elly follows right behind you.
Next part of the update will be posted tomorrow at around 5PM PST, thanks for playing and goodnight anons!
>>4671710Glad to have this quest back btw, I really missed it
>>4671793Thanks anon, always glad to hear anons enjoying the quest.
>>4671709You make your way back the monitor room, and peek from the hallway to check if the guard is still sleeping. Thankfully, he is still sound asleep.>Alright, now I need to start coming up with a plan out of here. What do we do with this sleeping guard...Elly whispers to you as she peeks around the corner. "Oooh, can I eat him? I bet I could use my claws to kill him in his sleep instantly!">As if, I'D certainly be able to kill him faster...>Sneak past the guard and head to one of the other rooms (write in)>Kill the guard in his sleep (1 min)>Attempt to capture the guard and interrogate him (3 min)>Let Elly handle the guard>Write in--------------------------Sorry for the delay, got a bit busy
>>4673041Interrogate the Guard! Its 2v1 should be easy to capture. You need more information on your situation!
>>4673041>>Attempt to capture the guard and interrogate him (3 min)
>>4673041>>4673060>>4673072You lower the volume of your audio device and tell Elly "I need to get some information out of this guy, and you're going to help me."Elly nods. "Okay! Can I take a bite out of him afterwards?""Probably. Now, I'll use my strength to hold him back, and you can stay as a lookout to make sure no one else spots us. Now, lets go!"You both rush out from the hallway, forcibly knock the guard from his chair, and grab both of his arms behind his back. Elly runs around the room to make sure there's no other guards nearby, and then walks up to the restrained guard with a look of hunger on her face.The guard awakes with a loud grunt. "Wuh...?" And then Elly walks forward, and puts her claws right up to his neck. "W-Wait-" He attempts to struggle against your grip, but he can't do anything against your robotic strength. "Tell me where we are, why I was imprisoned here, and how to escape, and I might let you live." You say as your tighten your hold on him."I-I don't know- ACK!" You tighten your hold even further, causing strain on his arms. "L-Look, I'm just a guard here, alright? I don't know why you were taken here, but I can tell you that this is a space station run by a espionage group...""And the name of this group?""I can't tell- OW!" Elly starts digging her claws into his neck. "I-It's called the Space Dogs... But I don't know who they work for! All clients are only known by the higher ups! H-Here, you can escape by getting to the hangar... There's ships and escape pods there.">Even if we could steal a ship, I'd have no idea where we are in space, and no way to reunite with Brother.You relax your hold on him slightly. "I saw a comms room on the map. I assume a pitiful grunt like you won't be able to work those machines?" The guard shakes his head. "My ID is low level since I'm just a security guard, I'm not allowed on any actual missions... Please... Let me go..."Elly lets out a sigh. "Can I bite him yet? This is getting boring.">Question the guard more (Write in)>Let Elly kill the guard>Let him live>Write in
>>4673196>>Let him liveConvince her that a measly security grunt tastes like crap and the bigger baddies prolly taste wayyyyy better. While we’re at it slip a subtle, Brother-like morality lesson in there
>>4673196>>4673202>... Fine, I'll let him live. A grunt like him doesn't even deserve to be killed by me.You let go of his arms. "He talked, let him live for now. This organization will probably kill him later for being a terrible guard anyway."Elly frowns. "Aw! But I'm HUNGRY! Can't I at least have a nibble?"The guard falls to the ground and crawls away. "P-Please don't, just let me live, I promise I won't tell!" If you could laugh at how pathetic he is, you would. "See, Elly? It's much more enjoyable to see someone as pathetic as him be thankful that you spared them. Now, lets go."You turn your back to him, and start walking away, when suddenly you hear a laser being fired! It misses your head by a few inches, and you turn around to see that the guard as taken out a small laser pistol!"Ha, Idiots! Next time make sure the person you spare doesn't still have weapons on them!" The guard says triumphantly, as he points his pistol at you.FUCK! I forgot to search him for weapons! Guess this is what I get for trying to be like Brother!As you take a fighting stance, Elly dashes in front of you. "Let me handle this prey, Boss! Just act as a distraction!">Me!? Being ordered to be a mere distraction!?... But maybe it'll be good to conserve my power and let her handle this.>Do as Elly says and let her handle it>Order her to stay back as we attack (Requires roll)>Write in
That's it for tonight, sorry for having to end early. I'll be busy tomorrow, so the next update will be on Monday at the usual time.
>>4673367>>Do as Elly says and let her handle itSeems competent enough. Dinner time it is!

>>4673367> Do as Elly says and let her handle itConserve battery, and feed a nice alien. 2 in 1 :)
>>4673367The guard is probably going to make some noise as he dies. When he's taken care of, get ready to ambush the armed guards who are coming to investigate.

>>4673367>>4673421>>4674170>>4675117>>4675467"Understood. Don't fuck this up!" You lunge to the side with your shield in your hand to protect yourself from the guard's laser, and Elly starts running up to the guard! Elly then lunges at the air right next to the guard.The guard laughs. "Hah, you missed-"You hear a familiar BANG sound, and Elly suddenly changes course in mid-air, and slashes the guard's neck! The guard stumbles backward, and drops his pistol as he grabs onto his neck. >Interesting, looks like that fin on her back can generate a small explosion, which can change her velocity in mid-air! Maybe this oversized fish will be useful after all.The guard falls to the ground, clutching his neck as nothing but gurgling sounds come out of his mouth. Elly wastes no time taking a bite out of his neck as he writhes around on the floor.>... Even though I've committed atrocities worse than this, I can't help but feel somewhat disgusted by this beast.As you walk over to take the dropped pistol, you notice the guard holding some small machine in his shaking hand. Before you can stop him, he hits a button on it, and hear alarms go off! The guard has a smirk on his face, and then he breathes his last breath as Elly continues taking bites out of his neck.>SHIT! This situation is only getting worse! This alarm means some reinforcements will be here soon. We have to get moving!>Rush to the Mess Hall to get closer to the Hangar/Comms room (1 min)>Go to the storage room to hide >Stay put and get in position to ambush any reinforcements>Write in

Lead the way!" You use the ID card to open the door to the mess hall, which is empty apart from a bunch of lunch tables in the middle of the room. Your audio sensors pick up the sounds of footsteps coming from the direction of the foyer.>Sounds like there's about 3 or 4 of them, but I can't confirm it. I could hide or set up an ambush here, or just go guns blazing and rush into foyer. Hiding or setting up an ambush might just give them more time to get more reinforcements... >Weird how this place was mostly empty when I woke up, were all of the people here away on a mission?Elly licks the blood off her claws as you stand there and think.

Well I want a wait a bit longer to get more votes/rolls, and next update will most likely be a bigger one that I need to spend time on, so I'll end it here for tonight and continue tomorrow at around 5PM PST. Thanks for playing, have a little doodle I made.
>>4676920Boss sure has his work cut out for him-- thanks for running OP!
>>4676920also dropping this here...
>>4677036That's fucking rad, thanks so much anon.Are you that one mutant quest QM? Your style looks like theirs.
>>4677044Yeet yeet. That I am, OP. That I am.didn’t think my style was that distinct, but Boss is rad and so is this quest (honestly is one of my personal favorites; don’t think I’ll ever run out of positive things to say about it)
>>4677062Neat, I really enjoyed your quest, and thanks for the kind words.I wonder if you've figured out which character Elly is a reference too.
>>4676589Set an ambush
>>4677065It crossed my mind briefly, but then when she was introduced I was like "nah, my quest isn't THAT popular.">eats people"Everyone likes feral, people-eating fishgirls-- couldn't possibly be, right?">dat name"Hmmmm..." Commence handonchin.jpeg Gotta say the explosion power Elly has is pretty badass.Also had no clue you were one of my readers-- learning that made my day! I hope to be back when the IRL grind lifts its foothold on me.
>>4676589Changing vote from this >>4676700to set an ambush
>>4676589>>4677092>>4677878>Too risky to go guns blazing, and hiding will be pointless. Lets set up some of the tables to act as cover."Elly! Put the tables on their sides and have them face the door!" You and Elly quickly shift tables onto their sides, to create some cover. "Do multiple tables, if we do only one it'll be obvious which one we're behind! Lets hide behind different tables so we can catch them off-guard. Don't attack until I tell you to."Elly nods, and hides behind a table across from you, putting her out of your range of vision.>Now, we just wait...
>>4678061After waiting a few minutes, the door to the foyer finally opens, and you hear multiple people walking out of it, talking to each other."Oh goddammit, someone messed up the mess hall. Did that beast get loose or something?""Don't see any blood. Someone probably just had a tantrum. A false alar-"Seizing your chance, you quickly pop out from behind one of the tables, and prepare to shoot. The men are dressed in what look like some form of stealth suits, and there's four of them. Unable to react to you quick enough, you shoot one of them right through the head, killing them instantly!"Shit!" They quickly aim their weapons and are about to shoot your cover to pieces!>Continue shooting them behind cover>Tell Elly to ambush them>Move to another piece of cover>Jump out from behind cover and attack with your blade and shield (Will use up more power) >Write in-------------------------------As a reminder, all combat options will require rolls. Elly and enemies will now get rolls as well, which I will perform once the vote is finalized.

>>4678066>>4678118>>4678177>>4678203Wasting no time to aim another shot, you shoot another one of the enemies right through the chest, making them fall back and shoot wildly before they hit the ground and die. "Elly, attack!" Elly jumps out from behind one of the tables, but the enemy she's aiming for dodges her assault, and kicks her away! Elly's left in the open as the remaining two enemies prepare to shoot her!>Just great, she's going to get herself killed already. Should I bother trying to fix her blunder?As you prepare to fire another shot, you notice your laser pistol is out of energy.>Piece of junk. I'll have to use my arm blade or pick up one of their dropped guns.>Yell at Elly to fall back>Jump out of cover and protect Elly with your shield (Will use up more power)>Jump out from behind cover and attack with your blade and shield (Will use up more power)>Jump for one of the dropped guns>Write in

The two enemies use this chance to fire on her, and two laser shots graze her right arm and her left face fin. She lets out a scream from the pain, and stumbles backwards. "Ahh... It burns!"While the two are focusing on Elly, you use this chance to grab one of the dropped guns. You're now out in the open, but the two enemies are still focused on Elly, and preparing to fire upon her again! Elly is stunned from the pain and unable to move!>Yell at Elly to pull it together>Jump back to cover and attempt to distract the enemies>Use this chance to shoot at the enemies>Jump in front of Elly and protect her with your shield (Will use up more power) >Write in

She leaps into the air, and the two enemies take their shots, but Elly uses her booster fin to propel her out of the way of the lasers, dodging them!While the two are distracted, you shoot another one of the soldiers right through the back of the head. The last soldier panics once they realize they're now outnumbered!"W-What the hell?! I didn't sign up for this! H-Hello?! General! General, do you copy?!"The soldier turns around and starts running into the foyer.>I can't let him call more reinforcements, what do I do...?>Attempt to hack his radio (Requires roll) (Uses up more power)>Attempt to shoot him down (Requires roll)>Tell Elly to chase him down>Write in

>>4679734>>4679785>>4679853>>4679867"Elly, don't let him get away!" Elly dashes after the last soldier with zero hesitation, and uses her booster to catch up with him. She attempts another attack, but only manages to tear into his back."Ow, fuck! Get away from me!"While Elly is chasing him down, you use your hacking programs to hack into his radio. Hacking into something as simple as that is trivial, and you easily shut it down before he can contact anyone else. "H-Hey?! Why did my radio turn off?! I know, I'll hide in the bridge and use the comms panel there!" The soldier continues running, this time heading in the direction of the bridge. >Of course Elly messes up again, and now he's too far away for me to shoot reliably.

You chase after them as well, trying to make sure the last soldier can't escape.Elly attempts another lunge, but once again only manages to scratch his back. The soldier doesn't stop running, and makes it through the door to the bridge, and quickly shuts it behind him before Elly can get through, making her smash into the door.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwxTZaa3NgI"O-Ow... Not again..." Elly groans as she falls to the ground.>Useless stupid fucking fish. Once again I have to do shit myself! Stupid fish is about as useful as that dumb Moth, Brother or Eyre would be much better comrades here!>I'm getting really mad now, if he gets to the bridge that means more reinforcements, and I don't have enough power to deal with that!>Attempt to hack the door to the bridge's hallway open (Requires roll) (Uses up more power)>Charge full speed at the door to break it down (Require roll) (Might cause damage to Boss)>Run to the hangar>Write in

>>4680105>>4680123>>4681333You attempt to hack open the door, and successfully break past the door's security systems and re-open it within seconds! The soldier was taking a breather on the other side, so he isn't prepared when it re-opens!"Oh fuck-" Due to the soldier's shock, Elly's able to lunge straight at the solder's neck, and successfully slashes his neck open. The soldier falls to the ground, trying to wrestle Elly off of him, but she uses her teeth to bite into his jugular, killing him.>Finally... I'm very low on power now, but at least I'm very close to escaping this dump. I could rush straight to the hangar and take a ship or escape pod there, or try and use the comms room to get into contact with Brother. Though, that always has the chance of just backfiring and sending more people here to try and scrap me.>Head to the Hangar (1 min)>Head to the Comms room (1 min)>Write in--------------------------Sorry for the late update
>>4682609Which room has the highest chance of giving us more battery life?
>>4682609> Hack the door between the mess hall and the foyer, and close it. This way any remaining crew can’t grab guns or escape> Head to the armory, we can probably use a laser gun charger to charge ourselves

>>4682609>>4682644>>4682648>There might still be some soldiers hiding in the barracks. Lets lock that door.You use your stolen ID to close the door between the mess hall and foyer, and then hack it to stay closed. >Good. If someone tries to open it, it'll stay closed. Now, lets head to the armory!You tell Elly to follow and you use the dead soldier's ID to get into the comms room, which is devoid of people, and then go into the armory, which you find is...>COMPLETELY EMPTY!? What the fuck? Did EVERYONE here go out on some sort of mission?Walking around the room to make sure there isn't anything left, you find one laser rifle left on the ground, the same kind the other soldiers were using.>Seems like they were in a rush to grab weapons and all left. Would explain how few people I ran into. This also means... A lot of armed soldiers are likely going to be coming back soon.>Doesn't look like there's any wall panels here I can use to steal power from, and these guns have no way for me to convert their energy into power. The only places to get more power will probably be off this station.Elly wanders around the empty armory, visibly winded. "I'm... Getting kinda tired and thirsty...""Can't you just drink their blood?" You say as you pick up the left over laser gun."No... Need... Water..." Elly lets out a large sigh.>And this piece of deadweight is probably going to die before I can even use them as a meat shield.>Go to the comms room (1 min)>Go to the hangar (3 min)>Write in
>>4682785> Go to the comms room and check for a power source. (There should be one; how else would the control panels get their power?)> Ask Elly if she is actually about to die
>>4682799Supporting this ^
>>4682785>>4682799>>4682805>There must be a way to get more power here...You move to the comms room, and look around for any power panels on the walls. There are none that you can see, so you decide to use a stolen ID to unlock one of the communication consoles there. On it you find an option to show a more detailed map of the station, and you see that there's a way to get to the station's power generator by crawling through a hidden maintenance shaft.>Damn, that's pretty far away, and through the door I just locked! Hey, what's this message pop up here?You touch a part of the communications panel that's blinking, and it shows a message.Was sent 3 minutes ago from Ship 1:Operation to capture the Moth was a complete blunder, and the guys we sent to clean it up weren't able to find Ship 2. Looks like it's been hijacked, their distress signal mentioned something about being attacked by a robot, wonder if they're related to that piece of scrap we stole. Client isn't going to be happy about this at all, we're heading back. Our ETA should be around 10 minutes.Also, what's with the alarm back at the station? One of you pricks better not have pulled it as a prank again. -General 0>A robot saving Moth? It can only be Brother! Ha, I knew I didn't have to worry about him! Did that say ship 2? Maybe I can use this control panel to send a signal to that ship!Before you mess around with the communications console though, you decide to ask Elly something. "So, are you going to die?"Elly's breathing sounds labored. "I think... I'll be fine for a while. But anymore fighting... Will probably make me pass out."So I can't rely on her to fight for me any longer. I'd have to fight any other soldiers by myself.>Try to use the console to get into contact with Ship 2 (1 min)>Head to the hangar (1 min)>Dash to the power generator by hacking open the door you closed (5 min) (Will use up more power)>Write in

>>4682919>Conserve power by using our still-stolen ID to open the door we closed>Book it to the power roomOnce we're charged we can head back through the maintenance shaft, get to the hangar, and nope tf out of here.
>>4682946Also I presume client is some sort of human(oid)-trafficking ringleader? We probably should get Elly some water somewhere along the way so she can fight again.
>>4682919>>Dash to the power generator by hacking open the door you closed (5 min) (Will use up more power). Then charge> Tell Elly to come with us and bring a gun with her> Once we have charged for 3 or 4 minutes, start hacking doors shut. Manage the boarders FTL style
>>4683120Call for help before doing any of that though. That way our friends can maybe bail us out if we fuck up

Elly lethargically takes one of the fallen soldier's guns. "I'm... Not that good at using guns though... But I'll try!" You hack open the door you closed, and make your way to the maintenance shaft. You hit a small button on the wall, and it opens the door to the shaft, letting you climb into it, and make your way to the generator. You find the power generator, and quickly jerry-rig some wires sticking out from it into the hole in your chest, and you instantly feel your back-up battery getting refilled. Once you have full power, you start trying to hack all of the doors shut.>Being far away from the doors makes hacking into them harder, unless I hack directly into the station security system...You look around the room, and see a engine monitoring console, showing the status of the engine. It also allows you to check the station's alert status and the status of machines and doors on the station.>I could attempt hacking into the security system through that, should give me access to door controls and security cameras. Though if I fail, it'll probably set off alarms and make it obvious where I'm at. What to do...As you think about what to do, you notice Elly sitting against the wall. She's breathing heavily and looks visibly distressed. "Water..." You don't think she'll be able to run anymore in her current state.>Attempt to hack directly into the security system (Requires a roll of 80 or higher to do successfully, anything lower is failure)>Leave the power room and head somewhere else (Write in)>Stay in the power room and wait for a while>Write in

>>4684435> Attempt to hack the security system> If successful, watch the guards. (The plan is to trap them using door hacking, but the specifics depend on where they go and stuff like that)> If the hack is unsuccessful, flee to the monitor room and use doorhacks to keep soldiers out. We can see everything from there, and Elly can drink the water in the stasis tanks.

>>4684435>>4684503>Setting off an alarm would be making it extra dangerous for Brother, so I shouldn't risk it.You decide just to wait, keeping yourself attached to the generator to keep your back-up battery charged. Elly continues to breathe heavily, but her condition doesn't seem to be getting any worse. After about 20 minutes of waiting, your audio sensors pick up the sound of someone crawling through the maintenance shaft! Thinking it might be Brother, you try send out a signal to reach him, but you don't sense him anywhere nearby.>So whatever is crawling through there is most likely human. I could just shoot laser shots through the shaft and kill whoever is in there easily due to how small it is, but the sound might alert nearby guards. >Shoot lasers down the shaft and kill whoever is coming in>Wait it out and attempt to subdue them quietly once they enter the room (Requires roll)>Write in

>>4684743>>4684748>>4684753>>4684768You move over to the exit of the maintenance shaft, and take out your arm blade. The sound of crawling gets closer and closer, until you see someone poke their head out of the shaft.>It's one of the soldiers! Alright, time to decapitate them! As you swing your blade down, the soldier turns their head and looks at you, and you hear a scream!
>>4684960>Wait, that voice!You stop your blade an inch from their face, and they crawl backwards. "You nearly killed me! Jerk!" They stand up, remove their helmet, and long brown hair comes flowing out of it."Hah, I should've expected you! I'm glad to see you're more competent than I thought, sneaking in here alone." You say as retract your arm blade."Says the robot that got themselves injured and captured. Looks like you're truly helpless without me." Eyre retorts with a smug smile. Eyre's eyes are then drawn to Elly, who seems too tired to even comprehend what's going on. Eyre's mood instantly changes. "Tricking more people into dying for you, Boss?" Eyre says with a scathing tone in her voice."Must you always criticize me? Anyway, fishface is still alive-""Not for long! She has blood loss and dehydration! And she's losing consciousness!"Irritated that Eyre is more concerned about Elly than you, you turn away from them. "Be happy she's still alive at all. Idiot couldn't even take down a few guards on her own- HEY! LET GO OF THE CAPE!"Eyre rips off pieces of your cape and uses them to wrap up the wound on Elly's arm. "Oh shut up. Don't you always say that all of the damage to your cape gives it character?"Somehow, despite Eyre's whining and blatant disregard for you, you still feel relaxed knowing she is safe. "So, how is Brother doing?" You ask, leaning your back against the wall, and keeping your cape out of grabbing range of Eyre.Eyre finishes wrapping up Elly's arm. "He's hiding in the ship we commandeered, I was able to put on a disguise and trick them all into thinking I was the last survivor from the attack and flew the ship here. Moth's there as well." Eyre stands up and thinks. "Damn, how am I going to get you two back to the ship? Due to your murders here, the whole place is on high alert and crawling with soldiers now. Any ideas, Boss? Wait, I already know your idea. It's going to be killing all of them.">Inquire more about the situation/ask a question about Brother (Write in)>Suggest a plan to get to the ship (Write in)>Write in

That way we can escape without anyone noticing.> Have someone (either Brother or Moth) hack all the other ships as well so nobody pursues us> Attempt to hack the security system just before we exit. If successful, we would have a few more options at our disposal (like locking every door in the ship so that we can raid the mess hall and get water for Elly without getting swarmed by everyone)
>>4684972>>4685071>>4686076While Eyre is thinking, you suggest a few ideas. "How about we use the vents to get to the armory, get some weapons, and then get to the hangar from there and dash to the ship?"Eyre shakes her head. "No vents lead to the armory, we'd have to go through the bridge. I took the time to check the map of this place before sneaking in. ""Then, what about you going back to the ship to cause a breech in the hull here, so we can escape? Brother and I could even attempt to hack into the ships to stop them from pursuing us."Eyre closes her eyes in thought. "That's... Not a terrible idea. However, while you don't need oxygen to survive, this alien does. If they're exposed to the vacuum of space for too long in their delicate state, they will die. I don't think going loud is the best idea, we're outnumbered, have someone who's injured, and attempting to hack their ships might not work.""Well, if you're going to criticize my genius ideas, why don't you come up with some plan?"Eyre signs. "I'm trying to. I just think that being stealthy is our best option. If you really want to do one of your ideas, I won't object to them.">A stealthy approach, huh? That's certainly more boring, but is there even a way to get out of here now without getting spotted or raising some sort of alarm?"Eyre, how much access to this station do you have?"Eyre flashes an ID at you. "One of the soldiers that was on our ship had high level access, so I currently have access to the entire station. That said, I've only gotten this far by avoiding their commander and tricking the lower level soldiers into thinking I'm higher rank than them. My cover could easily be blown if someone of higher rank noticed I'm not who I claim I am.">I wonder if her access could be used to help plan out a stealthy escape.

Alright, something came up so I have to end it early tonight, I'll continue tomorrow at the usual time.Thanks for playing, sorry for not being able to update more.
>>4687158I wanted to suggest this plan to Eyre
>>4687232Yeah, starting to think that Eyre might be able to offer us another perspective on this. Shouldn't give into the impulse to roll the dice all the time but the temptation's too strong.
>>4687042>>4687158>>4687232>>4687277"How about this plan: I hack into the security system to get access to the ship's door and camera systems, then I lock all of the doors except the ones we need to open to escape? And we just fight through whatever rabble we happen to run into."Eyre nods. "That seems like a good idea. However, one of us will likely have to help this alien since they can't move much. And if we take too long, they'll probably find a way to circumvent the hacked doors." Eyre looks deep in thought. "Hmmm... I feel like we might be overlooking something... But we can't spend too much time here thinking. I heard the soldiers are going to be bringing supply boxes to the ships in the hangar, and re-supplying them. If we wait too long they'll probably find Moth and the robot hiding in ship 2. Should we start preparing our plan, Boss?">Can't spend all our time here just trying to think of something.

Eyre quickly fishes something out of her pants pocket. "Aha! Forgot Moth gave me this. He hacked this radio to be on a private frequency, so I can talk to him." Eyre hits a button on the radio. "Moth, do you read? I've found Boss, and..."Eyre proceeds to explain the situation over the radio."... And that's the plan. Can you help us out? Over."You hear Moth's voice from the radio. "Alright, I guess. Me and the robot will attempt to secure the hangar when you give us the signal. Try not to screw up the hack, over.""You have no need to fear, insect. My hacking skills are unmatched!" You strike a intimidating pose.Eyre chuckles as she puts away the radio. "Alright, are we ready?

>>4688499>>4688526>>4688564>Alright, time to start phase 1 of the plan!You use the engine console to attempt to hack into the security system of the station. After expertly hacking past its security, you gain control of the station's cameras and doors, and can see into almost every room on the station.>Damn, it seems that the hangar's cameras are broken. Won't be able to see how many soldiers are in there. Brother will probably be able to hold his own though.You wait until you see the least amount of soldiers obstructing your path.>I could wait longer, but they might notice I've hacked into the system if I take too long.

>>4689705>>4689739>>4689790>Lets begin.You hack all of the doors that aren't in your path shut. Eyre picks up Elly and carries her on her back, and you detach yourself from the power generator. Eyre then takes out her radio and tells Moth to begin the plan. Both of you crawl through the vent and dash your way into the mess hall, and the solder turns around to see you."Oh fuck this." The solder turns around and dashes straight towards the foyer!>Attempt to shoot him (Requires roll)>Temporarily close the door to the foyer so he can't escape>Ignore him and keep running>Write in

He falls to the ground, completely unconscious.>... He went out cold. Looks like Elly isn't the only one that bashes her head into doors."These soldiers are about as competent as our old gang members." Eyre sighs as she stares at the unconscious soldier. >Kill him while he's unconscious>Ignore him and unlock the door to get into the foyer>Write in

>>4689926>>4689934>>4689983>Speaking of Elly, this would probably be a good chance to get her some water.You rip off one of the sleeves of the soldier's suit, and wrap it around his hands as makeshift handcuffs. He doesn't react to you moving him around at all, he's completely knocked out."Eyre, find the fish some water before we move on" You order after you finish handcuffing the soldier.Eyre nods, and rushes over to a water fountain. She lets Elly down and pushes the button to make it shoot water, and Elly starts drinking it. After a minute, Elly steps away from the fountain, refreshed."Aaaaaaaah! Now I'm good!" The light has returned to Elly's eyes and she looks revitalized.Eyre smiles. "Good. Here, take this soldier's gun." Eyre takes the unconscious soldier's gun an hands it to Elly, who fumbles around with it.>Alright, at least she won't be deadweight now."Lets go." You motion for Eyre and Elly to follow, hack the door back open and continue into the foyer.
And that'll be it for tonight, part two of this update will be posted on friday since I'm busy tomorrow.As always, thanks for playing!>>4688598>>4688633Thanks, it always makes me happy to see people enjoying the quest.
>>4690008With Elly and Eyre following close behind you, you make it to the entrance to the foyer. You lock the door behind you and hide in the hallway as you notice two soldiers trying to open the door to the bridge.>Good, they're distracted and didn't hear the commotion in the mess hall. Perfect for a sneak attack.Eyre whispers to you. "If we're fast enough, we could probably run straight to the hangar without them noticing us.">Or we could do the more boring thing.>Open fire upon the soldiers before they notice you (Requires roll)>Ignore them and attempt to dash straight towards the hangar>Write in
>>4692528>>Ignore them and attempt to dash straight towards the hangarKeep an eye on them anyways and be ready to pummel them if they turn around.
>>4692545Support, also lock the doors behind us again as we exit
>>4692528>>4692545>>4692552>Better not keep Brother waiting.You lock the door behind you, then silently motion for Eyre and Elly to follow you, and you quietly sneak to the hangar door. As you hack it open, you see three surprised soldiers on the other side!>SHIT! I couldn't see them because the hangar cameras are broken!The shocked soldiers let out a scream, and the solders back in the foyer notice the commotion! Eyre quickly looks over at you, waiting for your orders!>No time to think, I have to make a quick decision now!>Attack the three guards in the hallway and lock the door behind you (Requires roll)>Retreat back into the foyer and lock the door to the hangar, while shooting at the two soldiers in the foyer (Requires roll)>Write in

Rolled 66, 58 = 124 (2d100)>>4692612>>4692631Well since it seems we'll get no rolls higher than that, I'll roll for Elly and Eyre now and start working on next update.
>>4692605>>4692612>>4692631>>4692651You draw your arm blade and lunge at the soldier in the middle, and Eyre and Elly attack the other two soldiers. The soldier isn't prepared for you at all, and you effortlessly stab him through the heart, killing him. Elly slashes at one of the other soldiers, and is able to stop him from being able to get a shot off, but she is unable to kill him.Eyre tries to bash the remaining solder with her gun, but he blocks the attack with his arms.You lock the door to the foyer so the soldiers there can't interfere. The remaining two soldiers continue struggling with Elly and Eyre.>Attack the soldier Elly is fighting (Requires roll)>Attack the soldier Eyre is fighting (Requires roll)>Leave them and run into the hangar>Write in
Last update for tonight, I'll continue tomorrow at the usual time.Thanks for playing!

Rolled 24, 10 = 34 (2d100)>>4692767>>4693554Alright, rolling for Eyre and Elly again, then I'll start work on the next update
>>4692745>>4692767>>4693554Deciding to go for the closer soldier, you lunge for the soldier Eyre is struggling with, and successfully stab him in the gut. While he's stunned, Eyre takes the chance to shoot him in the head, but misses. "Crap." While Eyre tries to go for another shot, you just stab the soldier again, and he falls to the ground and bleeds out.Meanwhile, Elly fails in her attack on the last soldier, and he bashes Elly with his gun, making her go flying backwards and get knocked out.>Still utterly useless.The last remaining soldier, while bloodied, stands his ground and prepares to shoot at you and Eyre!>Attempt to shoot at him (Requires roll)>Focus on dodging his laser shot (Requires roll)>Let Eyre handle him and dash to the hangar>Write in

Rolled 30 (1d100)>>4694012+1
>>4694002>>4694012>>4694034Wasting no time, you take out your laser gun and fire at them. It hits them in the shoulder, but he remains standing. "Hah, is that all you've got-" Eyre follows up with another shot, this time hitting him in the chest. The soldier falls to the ground, dead.Eyre runs over to Elly and shakes her awake. "Oh good, she's fine. Just bruised." Eyre helps Elly onto her feet. "Well Boss, are you ready to get the hell out of here?">All I have to do is enter this hangar and board that ship, and I'll finally be out of here...>Proceed into the hangar>Try to contact Moth and Brother with Eyre's radio before entering>Write in
>>4694222>inb4 more soldiers>Proceed to the hangar
Alright, next update is going to take some work so I'll continue on monday. Sorry to end early. Thanks for playing!
>>4694222>>Try to contact Moth and Brother with Eyre's radio while entering
Sorry to delay the quest more, but something came up and I haven't been able to work on the update. I'll hopefully be able to continue on Wednesday.
>>4696439No problem OP!
>>4694222>>4694432>>4694244"Eyre, before we enter lets try and get a grasp of the situation. Contact Moth."Eyre nods and takes out her radio. "Moth, come in. How are things in the hangar? Over."You hear Moth's voice over the radio, and he sounds panicked. "There was a lot of soldiers, and the robot took care of them... But then their commander appeared, and the other soldiers have just been watching the two fight! I-I can't tell who's winning!">Heh, looks like the enemy commander likes to put on a show. Wonder if Brother will go all-out again..."No point in waiting anymore, lets run in there and help!" Eyre and Elly nod, and you hack open the door to the hangar. You're greeted by a scene of Brother and the enemy commander battling it out in the middle of a bunch of soldiers. Brother is using a laser sword with one hand, while the enemy commander appears to be using some type of gauntlets as weapons. Their attacks are lightning fast and send sparks flying everywhere!
>>4699348Between their blows, the enemy commander yells out "Is that all you got? I expected more!"Brother staggers back, and retorts "I won't stop until Boss is rescued. Please stand down so there doesn't have to be any more casualties."The enemy commander laughs. "Stand down?! After what you've done to my men?! I carry the lives of all of the men you've killed on my back, and it's my duty as a commander to make sure their deaths weren't in vain!" The two resume their battle, with neither having the clear advantage.Eyre whispers to you. "This is our chance, all of the enemy soldiers are distracted! We could dash to ship 2 and get out of here!">But if I do that, will Brother be able to make it to the ship?>Attack the distracted soldiers (Requires roll)>Dash to ship 2>Try to contact Brother electronically to form a plan with him>Write in-------------------------Sorry for all the delays
>>4699350>>Try to contact Brother electronically to form a plan with him
>>4699348Also epic gif!!!
>>4699383+1Nice update btw
>>4699350>>4699383>>4699426You motion for Eyre and Elly to stay where they are, and you send an electronic signal to Brother, trying to get into contact with him.>Brother! I'm here! We're by the hangar door!>Boss!? Are you okay?!>Still a bit damaged, but I'm ready to chop this fodder to pieces! Just let me at 'em!>Don't be rash! That commander ordered his soldiers to stand down so he could fight me alone. It'd probably be best for you to try and escape without them noticing!>But then you might get left behind! I won't allow that! We need to still have our duel you promised, you know!>Don't worry, I'll make it to the ship, and won't get captured like you do.>Tch. Well, how about...>Go with Brother's plan>Say we're going to deal with his soldiers>Run in and attempt to help Brother defeat the commander>Write in
>>4699515>>Say we're going to deal with his soldiers4v3 sounds pretty good... though with our roll-luck it's negligible
>>4699515> Go with brother’s planDoes boss know about brother’s terminator mode? I forgot
>>4699557Fine changing vote. Let's let brother go apeshit on these guys.
Sorry to end early after a long delay but I'm tired and busy tomorrow, so next update will be on friday at the usual time. Thanks for playing!>>4699386>>4699426Thanks, making a .gif was easier than I thought it'd be.
>>4699515>>4699557>>4699600>Fine... I'll go with your plan. You better not mess up!>Perfect. Run to the ship, I'll keep distracting them!You point at the door of ship 2, which gets Eyre and Elly to understand what you're planning to do. You quietly sneak close to the door while all of the enemies are distracted. The door opens, and you see Moth poking his head out of it. He motions for you to get in, and you let Eyre and Elly get in first. Right as you're about to enter, the enemy commander notices you! "Ah, there's that pile of scrap! Men, don't let him escape!" All of the soldiers turn around, and start aiming their guns at you! Brother attempts to go for an attack while the commander is distracted, but the commander deflects it easily!>Quickly, get out of here! I can escape on my own!>I doubt it, brother. You're barely keeping up with him! Of course, if you had someone as amazing as me helping you, this fight wouldn't be a problem!>I can always activate my hidden mode if things get bad, just start the ship already and get out of here!>(Damn it, what should I do? Can I really trust Brother to make it out of here without getting scrapped?)>Trust Brother and escape>Use your grappling arm to try and wrangle Brother close to you while enduring the laser shots (Requires roll)>Jump into the fight and take out the closest soldier (Requires roll)>Write in

>>4702416>computer crashed right as I was about to rollWelp, since I'm having computer issues I'll delay the update to tomorrow and give you anons more time to vote/roll.Tomorrow will probably be the final updates to this chapter of the quest as well, thanks for playing and I'll continue tomorrow.
Since there hasn't been another vote, I'll try and roll 1d2 to break the tie if there isn't another vote in 30 minutes.Hopefully my computer won't crash this time.

>>4702184>>4702350>>4703841>>4703879>As if I'll let you get yourself killed out here!As the soldiers prepare to shoot you, you use your extendable arm to wrap around Brother, and pull him towards you! As you do this, you do your best to dodge the incoming lasers! You're able to make sure your head doesn't get directly hit, but it gets grazed, and one of your antenna gets shot off! >Boss...!Brother comes flying into the ship, and he quickly stands up next to you at the door of the ship. "Well, thanks. Eyre, get us out of here-"You hear a noise behind you, and you see the enemy commander dashing towards the entrance of the ship with inhuman speed! "You're not escaping me, even if I have to destroy my own ship!" He lets out a yell and lunges at you!>This is it, we just have to keep him away and I'm finally out of this hellhole!>Close the door shut as fast as you can and try to keep the commander out>Prepare one final combo attack with Brother to knock the commander away (Requires roll)>Write in
>>4704022>>Close the door shut as fast as you can and try to keep the commander outIf he comes in, it's a boatload of people vs one other...
>>4704022>>4704029>>4704109>Brother, quickly, help me shut the door!Both of you grab the door, and slide it into place as fast as you can, but it isn't fast enough to stop the commander from lodging his gauntlets through the doorway! He then tries forcing the door open!Eyre stands at the cockpit, quickly hitting buttons and getting the ship ready to fly. "Get that door closed, or all of the air in this room will get sucked out when we fly out of the hangar!" Eyre yells frantically. Despite both of your robotic strength, the two of you are unable to get the door shut!>If we keep struggling like this the door will probably break! What do we do?!>Keep trying to force it shut (Requires roll, rolling too high can break the door)>Have Brother keep trying to shut the door while you knock the commander away (Requires roll)>Tell Eyre to punch it and hope the commander gets sucked into space so you can close the door>Write in

Rolled 47 (1d100)Since it's best of three I might as well roll too just to see if we can get a better roll
>>4704177>>4704225>>4704243>>4704269You stop trying to close the door, and instead start bashing yourself into the commander's gauntlets, trying to break their grip. >Damn, it's no good! He won't let go!You take out your laser gun and plan to shoot him through the crack in the door, but suddenly Elly runs up and grabs one of the ends of the commander's gauntlets! "Boss! Grab the other one and pull it away!" You grab it, and start trying to weaken its grip.You hear a series of bangs, and notice that Elly is using her explosive fin to give her more pushing power. Slowly but surely, the commander's grip weakens and his gauntlets slip through the crack, and Brother shoves the door completely shut!Brother puts his back against the door to keep it firmly shut, and says "Eyre! Get us out of here!"Eyre nods, and you feel the ship suddenly lurch forward, and through the cockpit window you see the stars go from dots to long lines. After a few moments, everyone finally relaxes, and Eyre runs right up to you and pats you on the head. "I'll give you credit Boss, I didn't expect that plan to work. But we made it!"You swat her hand away, not liking how she pats your head like you're a child. "Of course we made it, my plans are always flawless!"Brother walks up to you. "Well, you're welcome." >"Don't make me laugh, I could've escaped on my own, I never needed your help!">"Thanks.">Write in
>>4704297Let's thank our brotherNo need to hold up appearances when a fellow is around. Treat them with honesty
>>4704297>>4704305>>4704307>>4704324>... Well, I guess showing thanks for once won't hurt.You try and say thanks, but due to how rarely you genuinely show your emotions, your audio system has an error and it sounds like you stutter. "T-T-Thanks..."Eyre and Moth laugh, while Brother puts his working arm on your shoulder. "I'm just glad we got you back safely, and it looks like we even have a new member of our crew now." Brother looks over at Elly, who's staring at Moth."... So is this bug our livestock? When are we cooking him?" Says Elly with droll leaking out of her mouth."K-Keep that beast away from me!" Moth yells as he hides behind Brother. Eyre continues laughing. "Hah... Well, I guess I better start searching for a place we can dock to get you two robots fixed up, and we'll need to find supplies soon if we don't want to all get eaten by Boss's new friend.""Don't think you can treat me without respect just because I'm no longer a leader of a gang, Eyre. That beast isn't my friend, I just decided to let it live and follow me." You say while trying to strike an intimidating pose, which only makes Eyre laugh harder. Still, despite the teasing, you feel happy to be all together again.Brother looks out at the lines of passing stars through the window. "Now we can finally continue our goal of getting real bodies...""Don't worry Brother, with me around, nothing will be impossible!" You say as you put your arm around Brother.You also look out at the passing stars, excited about thinking where your journey with Brother will take you next.END OF CHAPTER 3.5
And that's all for this chapter of the quest. Thank you all so much for playing anons, I hope you all enjoyed it.However I'm sorry to say that this quest won't continue for a long while, my classes will start up again soon and I'll have some more boring life stuff keeping me busy. I also want to spend some time trying to learn how to actually draw, and I really don't know where to take the quest from here I need to spend some time thinking of a story to write.I'll probably be able to give an update at around the end of this year, keep an eye out on /qtg/, I don't lurk there all the time but if you ask a question about the quest I might see it and might be able to answer on when I'll be able to continue, and I'll for sure post updates there when I actually am able to continue the quest.Once again, thank you all so much for playing!
