Morning breaks on the city and the air is dusty. I wake up in Sweat’s apartment, on my back, and watch a bug I don’t know the name of crawl across the ceiling. I think I forgot to call my brother.

I thought the implication was that they'd already finished their first two tasks because they were easy? We should clarify with them
No. 918532 ID: c1eaac


but then why specifically say they don't remember what the tasks were? something seems fishy.
No. 918536 ID: f905c7

When we first learned about thralls we were told that the first two tasks are usually normal/achievable things, and it's the third one which is the kicker.

Shout and whisper's exact phrasing was
>“The ffffffirst, aa, the first t-two, were eeaaAAsy… sso easy I d, I don’t, I don’t, aaaaa, I don’t r-remEMber…”

They were easy, not are easy. But you're totally right that there's some ambiguity so we should definitely clear that up so we're not trying to do the hard thing without getting the easy stuff out of the way.

Would you normally be able to tell how damp that preacher is just by radar, or is this a new insight our optics are providing?

Regardless, I'd advise resisting the temptation to make any big melodramatic announcements, at least until after you've sorted out the actual problem under the lake. A shouting match draws attention, and the repair work might turn out to be more difficult or time-consuming than you expect (so getting people's hopes up is risky). If you're just a blowhard making unreasonable claims, the priests could potentially restore their long-run credibility by having you quietly murdered, but if the lake has already been fixed and you've got a better on-the-spot explanation for it than they do, that's harder to cover up.

>as soon as you heat it up to try and reforge it, it turns into regular steel
Nano-structured plating; you know how chain mail is a bunch of links welded together to create a weak yet flexible steel shirt? Now try making the links smaller than bugs and packed so tight they make that thick plate. Stuff like this was made through industrial processes - it was easy and cheap to produce AFTER you purchased about three cities' incomes worth of blacksmithing tools and a workshop the size of three spires. And even then one of these 'factories' could only produce one ingredient which were carted over to another factory for further processing. The whole thing became one giant homework problem and whoever solved part of it got showered in gold.

Man, those were the days... if only we didn't have to keep our owning rights individualized for such a huge machine. Corruption spreads fast when every customer 'knows' they can make something themselves for $$$ but the factories know they can make it for $/2.

>Preacher: They tried to make cheap knockoffs of what God gave them
Fair enough -
>Preacher: They spurned God and He turned his back on them
- I do feel guilty, we should be better people -
>Preacher: And then they tried to make false purposes but they died
- but it's not your right, Preacherman, to enslave us to a purpose we don't believe in! We wanted to see how far we could go!

I can’t believe this day has finally come. After a decade of pleading, Master Theodolite has finally approved my expedition, and secured funding from the royal treasury. I’m reeling; I can barely see straight - it’s finally going to happen.

With Kran to assist with carrying the load and Uzu's alarmingly effective bartering, the rest of the Brack Bazaar branch of the shopping trip went quickly and uneventfully. As I expected, it was the best place to find camping and wilderness survival supplies, though the merchants were more used to dealing with hunters traveling into the glasswastes than timid scholars preparing for long sea voyages. We also procured a stock of medicine and cloth to use for bandages, repairs, and any other miscellaneous uses that might arrive. (The cloth was surprisingly fine for such a low price, and as Uzu had been the one to recommend the vendor I did my best not to question its origins.)

It was also alarmingly easy to find weapons. It seemed everywhere we turned, we saw displays of swords, knives, bows, and other, nastier things. At one point a merchant attempted to convince us that it would be madness to leave the walls without a spellstriker, of all things, but in my private opinion it would be rather more suicidal to come within a stone's throw of one of those infernal contraptions. I did purchase a crossbow for hunting purposes, as well as a few assorted knives of good quality for various purposes. We would need to go to the Heartmarket for the quantities of travel rations we needed, or the Seamarket if we felt up to several months of surviving primarily on preserved fish, but everything else seemed accounted for.

All in all, I was feeling quite confident about our purchases, but before we left the Bazaar I paused to ask my companions if there was anything else they felt we should bring which my list hadn't included.

Otherwise outside of food it seems you're good to go though maybe a fishing rod or two or even a fishing net to catch some extra food just encase you are out on the sea a little longer then you plan to might not be a bad purchase if you have the spare coin for it.

Can a machine dream?

It’s an odd question, one the prewar scientists often debated when the midnight oil was burning low but the actual work ahead of them was too daunting a prospect to consider. Could a machine, insomuch as it was a being whose desires were derived from dozens upon dozens of algorithms, ever understand that natural state of blissful, protean nonsense that took the human mind beyond the realm of logical limitations?

Even with the dawn of the first AIs or perhaps because of that inciting incident, the question only seemed to grow more muddled over time. As machines learned to think, to plan, as they took on ambition and personalities of their own, the question of what constituted the final, impassable bridge between what was human and what was artificial, that most sacred of lines, was an ever-shifting topic of speculation.

In the end, dreams became a common subject. Could something that was wholly logical, whose perceptions and responses could be reduced to lines of code: could such a thing as never even needed sleep to begin with, enter a state of unknowing and yet somehow revelatory unconsciousness? Even if it could, at that point, would it be a dream in truth or merely a simulation, something inherently bound to a perfect and rational order?

Perhaps, in the end, the creators feared what they had forged in their own image. Perhaps that is why, when the technology was there to create hundreds if not thousands of artificial intelligences, a virtual army that mimicked the intellectual prowess of the greatest scientists of their age, they limited themselves instead to what they could reliably hold in the palms of their hands.

“I won’t sugar coat it,” you begin, trying not to strike a callous tone. “Nothing down below is in peak condition by a long shot, and the part of the network that’s been cut off is in even worse shape.”

“Is it the pumps?”

“The water pumps, air pumps, and the filtration systems,” you explain, noting the creases of concern on the canine’s face. “Give it a couple more weeks, a month at most, and I think at least one major sanitation and oxygen filtration system out of three will probably be down for good. The subsequent increase in strain across the remaining network will probably mean complete lights out within the next two months.”

“What’s worse is that those systems must be the ones that are only accessible from inside the tank,” he conjectures with a whine. “Otherwise, I likely would have found the damages during my external sweeps.”

“We might be able to selectively shut down parts of the tank for cleaning and maintenance,” you suggest. “The bigger problem we’d have to solve first though, is just getting the actual replacement hardware. Vault-grade construction for self-sustaining aquatic ecosystems isn’t exactly common.”

Understandably, the news puts something of an end to idle conversation, Theodore becoming wrapped up in his own thoughts as he begins plotting a course toward the ever-more turbulent future. You leave him to it, praying for your own part now that you’ll have some good tidings to share on the return trip.

To your surprise, your return to the upper levels (while lonesome) does find you face-to-face with your sortie, the groups of hounds all fit and formed up around the elevator door with tails held rigidly at attention.

“At ease,” you order through the Pup-Boy, relieved as they immediately respond. “Meet up at 20:00.”

Again, they seem to have no difficulty understanding at least that much, the ordered masses quickly breaking back down into an uncoordinated horde of wagging tails that scatter to the four winds. As convenient as it would be to begin running drills with the group and figuring out the exact limits of their understanding, there is still just so much to do.

“Aria,” you call through the network, tapping into her live feed just long enough to see a pair of Mr. Handy arms fussing over a pile of warm, writhing lumps. “I thought you were going to see about repairing the other Mr. Handy’s.”

“But I did!” she insists. “I reprogrammed the functional repair automata with some of Jeremy’s subroutines and maintenance presets before leaving the job to them!”

That… That’s actually surprisingly competent.

You just quit your job. You can't believe it.

PARADISE FOUND is a post-cyberpunk neon glam quest about fighting the man, finding yourself, and becoming a witch. It will deal heavily with themes of gender/identity exploration and found family. Content warnings will include violence, injury, blood and body horror as standard for my quests, as well as potential nudity. Due to the story's themes, it may also deal with depression and dysphoria (both general life dissatisfaction and gender dysphoria.) Be kind to one another. Be kind to the story. Godspeed.

The tour has been going on for....quite some time. You've seen everyone's sleeping quarters, small dormitory-style rooms housing two people each. You've seen the kitchen, where Soma informs you the folks who need to eat go. (You think this implies that it doesn't need to eat???). You've seen the bathrooms and showers, and the repair room where Soma proudly tells you it does most of its work when it isn't at its workstation in the main room. Just when you think there couldn't possibly be anything else down here, it leads you to a final room. It's very sparse. There is a bed, which looks comfortable enough, with plain white sheets. A desk stands at the wall, with a computer atop it, and the other wall is lined with bookshelves.


Suddenly, a red light on the wall blinks, and a voice emenates from a speaker mounted in the wall.

Psyche: Soma, can I borrow you in the main room?

Before you have time to respond, it disappears down the hall.

It occurs to you that this would be a very good opportunity to snoop.

A) Snoop
B) Stay here. Do not snoop.
C) Follow Soma instead.
D) Something else?
No. 914452 ID: a64fd6

snoop, always
No. 914457 ID: 930d12

The temptation is insane, but snooping always feels so gross, and it doesn't feel deserved yet.

C. That's more interesting than waiting and enough disobedience to get over the temptation for snooping.
No. 914468 ID: afdebc

So... is Soma's appearance within acceptable bounds of what you would consider normal in this day and age, or is television-for-a-head unusual?

Snooping in someone's bedroom is pretty low, don't do that.

No. 915587 ID: 50697f

Don't snoop, we don't want to get in to deep before we know we can trust them. I'd say follow Soma

Is this cuteness unusual?

Everything has a nature, Render. We, just like everyone else, didn't get to choose ours. It makes no difference that someone designed ours.

It's good that you don't want to use me as an object. I am my own person after all. But sometimes, It's ok to give into our natures, Render. Maybe I'll want to be used like an object sometimes.

Why don't you ask me, and find out.
No. 915028 ID: ae9bd9

Cuz he had mixed feelings about his creator. Hated his existence, but loved her. And then was retroactively made into her consort.

So, this may be a tad groundbreaking, but maybe a good start to overcoming this sort of thing would be some clothing. Render wont be as uncomfortable if Calliope isnt strutting around with her baps and vag on display.

Plus, clothing can offer protection both from the elements, and in the case of things like kevlar, from combat as well.

Additionally, if no one has noticed, ur all white af. That isnt a very natural color so lets try to either make some wearable camouflage or some body paint so as to blend in better. Weapons (and some grabbers for Render) would also be useful.
No. 915029 ID: ae9bd9

Btw, are Calliope's breasts capable of functioning (soylent, maybe)? That could be a source of emergency nutrition for the more biological members of the troupe if we end up under an extended assault. If not, we need to set up an indoor farm.

If we can secure the door further and create an airlock, we probably won't need someone to stand watch, or at least not outside.
No. 915059 ID: 6b5bdd

Perhaps instead of body modification, we could use her bubble blowing to push food in when she blows ichor bubbles? They seem pretty strong and with no air getting in, also as sterile as whatever is poured into them.
Things like chewed salted foods would definitely work, and if she could sterilize her gullet comfortably she could do dried and liquid food too.
It would be less useful for large storage but if you can pop the bubble without getting the contents all over you it's a durable and long-lasting food container.
No. 915151 ID: ae9bd9

Body mod?

No, i was asking if they are currently capable of functioning, not whether we could make them function. Your bubble suggestion is valid, but i think the biologicals may be a bit more amenable to something like a hydroponics garden.

It is a time of war, and a time of peace. A time of magic, and a time of technology. A time of endings, and a time of beginnings.

But most importantly, a time of genesis. After a long and hard fought war, you have driven back the forces of Castle Rengrave and reclaimed the land that belonged to your homeland, at last establishing a ceasefire that granted you sovereignty when the leadership had changed in the Castle. But now you must rebuild: on this island of Avalon, there are 4 major powers battling for supremacy - the Dragon Blood, the Blackwater Union, the Tulran Primacy, and the Zurvian Empire. One day, your fledgling nation may stand at the same vaulted ranks as these four, but for now you are among many small independent villages and kingdoms that are scattered among Avalon, only escaping notice due to your diminutive nature.

But the wars of Avalons are no longer being fought by blade and by bow, but by providence, blessings given by whatever god or dark demon you give worship to for mighty deeds in battle. There are but three ways to gain a providence: earn it through victorious combat, slay the previous owner of a providence in a fair combat and gain theirs, or cut out the heart of a dead providence user and eat it. You had a providence, but it was sealed away by the elders during your childhood; instead, you won your war for independence through your intense bravery and leadership skills. Still, Blackwater outnumbers you in population and land size, as they have been the undisputed masters of the Raven’s Peninsula for over 2 decades, and they used that opportunity to establish several “corpse towns”, crowded dirty villages filled with the dead, dying, and undead whose sole purpose is to provide “raw materials” for Blackwater’s necromantic industry, nearby. If you’re going to truly claim to be free you may need to negotiate to get them removed or attack and erase them from the map entirely.

Today's the 4th day since I became the chief of what must be the shittiest, most indefensible camp I've ever named Storm Hold.

Matron kicked me out of my own damn tent and told me to at least pretend I was managing things, so now I'm sitting under this rock in the shade and pretending. It's not all lazing about. Leaf and I spent of yesterday properly checking everyone and gauging people's ability to kick other people's asses. Oakroot and Hilt were Wind's best fighters, which is a damn shame. Oakroot's a dumbass, and Hilt is a soft dumbass.

Matron said I should write down a full list of gnolls, with a rough idea on their skill levels. That means I have to find a gnoll that can be assed to do that. All I know is that we got about 50 gnolls after all, counted up after our raid on Blacktorch. Not counting the kids, cause kids don't count.

In better news, a crap sword was just finished for me. I'd call it plain and boring, but like starvation and food, it looks good to me. Like a metal stick with a carved edge. Considering how fast it was made, I ain't complaining. Even has a sheath!

Leaf comes up to me.

I think Leaf is well acquainted with the basics (and advanceds) of stealth, we're supposed to choose how he enters the fort.

He should definitely wait 30 minutes though. Getting spotted before entering the fort is even worse than being spotted inside it.
