It's times like these that make someone ask the big questions; is there a God, for example.

You've never really believed in an omnipotent power, especially not now, as you hang from your hands and feel your ribs crack.

Is there a such thing as good and evil, that's another good one.

Probably not.

Your anger seethes, a rising crescendo like the hiss of a steam kettle, until finally it reaches the boiling point... And dissipates.

You sigh deeply, and with the breath, all the anger leaves your body, replaced with a hollow sadness, and deep disappointment in yourself.

It's not Lead's fault. There was nothing he could've done. It took a lot of strength to do what he did, to remain calm in the face of such a shitstorm. And you almost repaid that strength with a bullet. Yes, you're disappointed in yourself, but more so you're glad you stopped yourself before fucking up irreparably.


And besides, you see it now. That sadness behind Lead's eyes, the way he scans the horizon with hollow repetition. It was hard on him to do that, it was a hard choice. But he chose to keep the living alive, instead of cling to a corpse. You couldn't even begin to thank him for that sacrifice, for being surrogate to the guilt that would have hounded others. So you do the one thing you know he'll understand.

You clasp a hand on Lead's shoulder. He looks to you with questioning, almost hopeful eyes, as if he wants you to chew him out, to verbally beat him. It's easer to bear someone's open anger than quiet contempt.

But words never come. You stare him right in the eye, features set in a soft, mournful expression; a tiny, sad smile that reassures the promise of a tomorrow, and knowing eyes that speak the words you do not possess, telling him that you understand, that you feel his pain.

And just keep staring, neither of you breaking eye contact, until you're standing beside him, staring into the abyss. Until the abyss becomes you, and you the abyss.

You take a breath, and order your thoughts; most pressing is the urge to check your gear. Taking a knee, you make a mental list as you inspect the items individually. Struck with a pang of paranoia, you double check that each item is fully functional.

You lost your rifle, you don't really remember when through the haze, but it's gone. That leaves your secondary as your only firearm, a custom Matt-black M1911 SOCOM with night sights, holstered at your hip, it's fully functional, has two extra 7-round magazines aside from the one loaded. Then there's your knife, a shaving-sharp Ka-Bar with a plastic handle, sheathed upside-down in front of your left shoulder. A Leatherman multi-tool in a vest pocket. Two fragmentation grenades strapped to your vest. A small medkit, everything intact. Your radio, a broad-band self-encrypting handheld, fully functional, clipped on your back behind your left shoulder. A watch, electronic, upside down on your left wrist. Your cellphone, totally broken. Your body armor, a light ceramic plate-carrier, front and back protection. And lastly, a razorblade duct-taped to the bottom of your watch, which you sincerely hope you'll never have to use.

Everything except the cellphone is functional; there's a few rips in the plate carrier, and some dust fond it's way into the 1911's chamber, but they still function. A small miracle.


Your paranoia somewhat abated, the next matter is location; yours currently being what looks like an abandoned electronics shop, based on the various ancient TV's and decades-old phones on shelves and in display cases. The team splayed about the room, engaged in various self-care or post-battle activities.

So you're in an electronics shop, but where? Instinctively you reach for your phone, only to be reminded that it is just as broken as it was ten seconds ago. It's GPS isn't much use. Someone else h

Tell Lead ASAP. But also put 'sending an SOS to the Russians' on the table. Obviously an international incident will @#$% things up even more, but at this point, you adversary has a higher level than you; either they have the tech / intel / luck to blackout military-grade hardware, or there's a mole in Mission Control. Or worse. Teaming up to uncover a conspiracy earns brownie points for the troops on both sides, so they have incentive to help.

"You fucked up, kid. Bad. But we're here to give you a second chance."

The PSB agent across the table from you speaks in a cold, soulless voice. His movements are almost robotic, his eyes hiding behind a pair of dark sunglasses. He produces a strange-looking pistol from his suit jacket and puts it on the table between you.

"A revolver," he says, anticipating your question. "Runs on black powder instead of batteries. Shoots bullets instead of lasers. Makes death very painful, and usually slow. Most importantly, since one hasn't been produced in over 300 years, it's undetectable by modern weapon scanners."

"What am I to do with it?" You ask.

"Take it to Jupiter Station. There's a scientist there working on a chemical weapon so potent that a single gram could wipe out all life in every Mars colony combined. Special Agent Pilar will tell you everything you need to know before you leave. Do this, and we'll clear all the charges pending against you." As he speaks, he places a datapad in front of you. On it is displayed a Decree of Exoneration, complete with the official seal of the Martian Unified Planetary Government, declaring you innocent of all charges and ordering your record expunged. As your eyes feast hungrily upon the document, he says at a near-whisper, "I can sign it the moment we have verified your success."

You thought the possibility of spending the rest of your life in prison was bad enough, but now you're having to choose between that and murder for hire. The fact that the hiring is being done by your own planetary government just makes it feel worse.

The only thing holding you back from accepting is a conversation you overheard in the prison canteen at breakfast. Tonight's the night of a massive jailbreak attempt: Rival gangs cooperating, a riot, corrupt guards, a tunnel, stolen ships,

Your chances to kill just one person without the revolver are scant. Intel on the lab itself is severely lacking; apart from general information about his coworkers and the blueprints, you have nothing, which hints at the PSB's informers not having lab access. From the blueprints, you notice two things about Cruise's lab: It is on an exterior wall, and has an unusual amount of space allocated for a chemical lab. There appears to be a large opening present in the lab, but it is shown only on the earliest version of the blueprints, leading you to suspect that it was an early freight delivery point during construction. Or, you consider, it could've been deliberately obscured to hide something...a secret shuttle bay? You can't quite figure it out from here.

You consider the CO2 monitors. His entire apartment building is connected to the same ventilation system; you could easily suffocate him in his sleep and make it look like a system error, but that would kill all of the estimated 690 residents in the 360 apartments in his building. You may also be able to pull this off and kill only Cruise and his coworkers while they're at the lab, but you aren't sure what additional failsafes are in place for these lower levels, and especially what mitigating factors might exist in the lab itself. His work with chemicals - especially Wilson's work with injection systems and storing unstable compounds - seems like another good opportunity for sabotage that can be made to look like a genuine accident. However, containment and the specifics of what is being worked with make you sketchy on pursuing this course of action.

It would be child's play to reroute voltage to electrocute him remotely as he interacts with a panel or sits at a terminal, however this presents two problems: It would be obvious that this was no accident, and it could be traced back to you - or rather, your location. Your only option here would be to f

what if we just tried to talk to him? (too bad we didn't get any charisma) the electrical thing sounds highly promising, though that seems way too easy, like he isn't the REAL mastermind behind the project.

No. 942437 ID: ce39da

Very possible he isn’t the mastermind, but he’s still the brains the mastermind needs to make his plan a reality, if nothing else. Here’s my idea; find a subtle way to break into his apartment (so that you can lock the door behind you, etc.). Find a place to hide that you’re confident he won’t check (like a toiletries cabinet or under the kitchen sink). Wait for him to come home and go to bed (wait several hours to be safe). Come out, and smother him with a pillow and use that to muffle your shot. Break out before morning comes. As far as I can tell, this is your best shot at getting away with this.

We should try to minimize close contact with the target. Mary isn't physical enough to survive an encounter gone wrong without resorting to the revolver, and that is neither subtle nor quiet (it uses frigging chemical explosions to push a slug, it'll be loud as fuck).

I'm liking the electrocution idea. Even if we don't frame someone else it puts distance between the target and Mary, and it buys a lot more time than a shooting does in terms of giving her a chance to escape. If we do frame someone, it'll buy a lot more time. Plenty of time for our collaborators to spring their next part of their plan.

Cruise spends time with Su Yi Chen. What if we could make it look like there was evidence that their relationship was not platonic? What if we could make it look like Deng Chen learned about it, and in a misguided attempt to salvage his sister's reputation decided to just kill Cruise?

It'd require some fiddling with social accounts, some e-mail fraud, some spoofing and phreaking, but it'd be doable. And it would have the authorities detaining Deng while we got away, and our collaborators carried out their part of the mission. Cruise being murdered by an angry brother won't result in the same security response that Cruise being killed by an assassin armed with an ancient weapon would.

You all met in a tavern in some no-name logging town out on the frontier. Scruffy prospectors, scheming merchants, disgraced minor nobles, and deranged veterans from thousands of miles away converged on rumors of a ruined fortress from the Old Empire and the priceless treasures within. Seemed like a great way to get rich, make a name for yourself, or at least keep busy while avoiding the big cities for whatever reason. Things went wrong. Now you're lost, with barely any supplies. Getting out alive won't be easy. Might still score some wealth and power on the way, though.

Pick a class (hedge witch, rich bastard, soldier, or townie), and a specialty within that class. A hedge witch specialized in healing can resurrect the dead, if all the key giblets are in place, but after they start to go rancid it's like pushing an avalanche back uphill.
Pick a higher ambition (compassion, fame, honor, wealth, rule the world, etc.), and a lower ambition (fetish).
Pick either a phobia, a concealable mutation/parasite, or a supernatural vulnerability - or all three plus an innate power.
For example, an elf could have a phobia of disfigurement (an un-pretty elf is called an orc), pointed ears providing acute senses but vulnerable to overstimulation, and the power to balance effortlessly on any solid surface, no matter how narrow or fragile. An adventuring vampire could have a phobia of holy powers, concealable fangs to heal by drinking blood, vulnerability to immersion in running water, and the power to transform into mist. A corrupted princess could have a phobia of slime, vagina swarming

As everyone murmurs half-remembered gossip from Passholdt, Lizzy raises her voice, to better address the unseen assailant.

Yeah, why would you need a gun? Luvi's kind, but that's ridiculous, and you're not particularly well trained with one - though perhaps you could act like you know what you're doing. Maybe Luvi prepared it for her gun-nut friend?

Anyway, plan of action. You're headed for the Office of Rogue Services first, then Gentle Pastures. Though... is today a Monday, Wednesday or Friday? Luvi's 'legally required' opening spiel mentioned them being open from ten AM to four PM on those days for drop-in consultations, and if today's a not-open day (or too early) we may want to reconsider Kark's advice. Also, do we know where the offices are? Check for the address if not - ideally get a map app of the city and a buss schedule / ticket purchase app DL'd to your phone.

Walking will take a long time, but it's free. You'll probably have to hustle a bit, mind, to get everywhere you want to go. Also, you might run into someone from that youth gang you've probably pissed off. (Huh. Maybe that's why Luvi prepared a gun? She was considering your safety?)

Taking a buss will ideally take less time at the small price of 50-something zeny, and you'll wait at buss stops and hang around other neumono on the way. This could potentially be turned to an advantage if you can pitch rogues to show up to the town hall. Who knows, you might get lucky

Hore's brain temporarily segfaults. For all her intellectual wanderings, this concept is almost alien to her. Sure, religion is not equivalent to faith but isn't it powered by faith?
"I... wait. This... what? I mean, as far as I understand, faith is what powers organizations. If nobody believed that any organization has a nonzero chance of bearing fruit of some kind, nobody would join anything ever. The main misconception is that you need a perfectly specific type of faith to join a specific organization - hence the cults, the corrupt, and those who have no faith in their fellow conspirators but have faith that the organization they joined can be bent to their schemes - but faith is still the main power source."
There's more Hore would like to say but it can wait.

After the argument in the river, everyone is a bit wet and grumpy. Upon returning to the court, it comes up in discussion that a third party, presumably at least somewhat faithful to both Orcus and other employers, was attempting to spirit the Wheel of Bone away, and has managed to do so. Even though they consider themselves faithful, this "Goris" is politically unaligned with the Church as an organization, and was actually attempting to transport the creature to their current boss, an opportunistic Lucre Witch who's got a thing for capturing monsters as pets. This means that, if the court requires the Wheel of Bone on their lands for proper vengeance and disposal procedures, that the Firehawks would likely be unable to actually transport it back here to fulfill those requirements. Accordingly, the court settles upon disintegration as a satisfactory goal, and agrees to send a representative to observe the event.

The pirates are contacted via sending, and an agreement to come assist with disposal of the Wheel of Bone in return for the safe return of their prisoner Goris is made. It's certainly possible the pirates had other plans to backstab and/or otherwise profit off the arrival of the mercenary crew, but if that were the case, Supreme Disintegration probably convinced them otherwise.

Monster extermination and liaison between the crew of the Ardent Star and the Court of the Fethine goes reasonably smoothly, all things considered. Nobody's completely happy but at least the grinding skirmishes seem to be over.

Sister Goris was injured while in your custody, several deep puncture wounds cauterized by what look like chemical burns. Exact cause and timing are unclear. Nothing her own magic can't fix, given a day or three, but her crewmates are pushing for some sort of restitution, though they're not in a great position to force the issue. She herself is oddly quiet, and actually went to some trouble to conceal the injuries.

If the Fire Hawks are going to be practicing their teamwork in the relatively low-threat environment of the Mouth of Doom rather than Talon North, they should probably re-introduce themselves in thread 7. https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/829557.html

And worse of all, do you think ME above fate?! That I can write it and rewrite it at my will and that the gods themselves bend to my whim?!

Oh…

Oracle: Foolish, stupid, you that think that giving me more than what I ask will grant you a better fate! My predictions will be the same, regardless if you give me the payment of a king, or a mere mule!

She seems to have greatly misinterpreted my intentions…

Man: I heard screaming, Is everything alright?!

Oracle: Yes, honey, thank you! Please go back inside.

Man: Uh… Yes, dear, sorry for bursting in.

The oracle seems calm herself and takes a deep breath before continuing…

Oracle: … So, do you want my vision or not?

Apprentice: Y-yes, please.

She counts the coins inside the bag, and takes exactly three, before handing it back to me.

Oracle: Alright, hold on…

The oracle closes her eye, takes a deep breath and remains silent for some time… until she finally speaks.

“...I’m seeing you walking… I don’t know where… Suddenly, you encounter a being… a haunting, wild darkness… you can sense its mere presence all around you… you seem incapable of escaping but… it doesn’t seem to consider you a threat… nor it seems to care about you. It ignores you completely… focusing on something else…

Then… the being… it would seem that… you can turn it in your favor… make it an ally...? but to that… I’m seeing you dancing in the fine line between life and death…”

Oracle: … And… that was all I could see…

… Well…

…That was ominous…

But a Dungeon is not merely a property, but also a business in itself, you can inquire a debt on a business without collateral. Hmm, but then if Mary claims she only claimed the real estate, constructs and monsters, and used it to start a new business... which checks out with her changing the name of the dungeon as soon as she was able to... then the debt would be associated with the Dungeon of Pain, which is unrelated to Mary. Yes, this is workable, we have a solid case now. Carry on.

THIS QUEST MAY OR MAY NOT CONTAIN: adult content, gay and lesbian content, gore, asphyxiation, nonconsensual immolation, necromantic life drain, vivisection by way of mideival weaponry, full on cannibalism through swarms of sapient insects, cube-based dissection, and vaginal fingering.

a girl entered the tavern about a half ago, beaming from ear to ear, and strapped for war.

"a mug of your finest, sir!" she said, "you're looking at the newest initiate of the Crawler's Guild!"

GARGOYLES: stout of body, stout of soul. gargoyles are as unmoveable as the mountains.

MURDERSCRUBS: Death begins, death ends. Murderscrubs are masters of the fine art of killing.

ZENLINGS: fleet of foot, fleet of mind. Zenlings move like a cold breeze, and strike like a sandstorm.

LUDELINGS: perfection of self, perfection of the world. Ludelings walk like men, and think like wolves.

Nope, eating addiction is something that actually exists and doesn't apply to everyone; just being dependent, or even enjoying it, isn't enough. The main difference, and the one that's most important right now, is compulsive behavior and lack of control.
Alice can't control herself when it comes to eating, and every time one of you suggests that she should eat something, she will take the excuse to eat.

>the addiction seems to go away after a while.
It doesn't, not for her. Read the previous chapters again, her compulsion to eat actually gets worse the more she eats.

Know, our child, that among the long and trackless eras when silence ruled the stars, and the hopes of our ancestors were spent on dried and hollow bones, there rose and crashed a cresting wave that glittered with steel and fire; an Age when sparking coals of written word and carven stone were spilled and burned away across the world, when the serpent-spiders in their secret kingdoms wove tapestries of death and cunning from sea to sea, and queens of queens tied tribes one to another, to strive with them and with each other, writing histories of dreams and nightmare onto pages doomed to crumble.

Hither came Zorya, red of fur and marked in white, heavy-formed, brazen-eyed, blade in hand, an amazon, a champion, an unrejected rogue, with affections fierce and rage the same, to rip reality from legend and become, and be, a Queen of Blood.

And if you feel you have time, or find them on your way, several large stones/small boulders for throwing, and perhaps a middling tree limb (From one of these dieing mistbanks) to extend your reach will be useful.

... to do a search this section of Mistbanks for the creature.

However, this will take a few minutes to do, as without knowing the precise location, I can only search all of them for vision of the creature, whatever it is.

So, now would be a good time to plan out some general battle tactics. It may be surprising, but I have very little concept of effective combat beyond 'hit something with a heavy object'. That might work for a feral quillbeast and a rock, but this creature can move quickly, and is intelligent enough to use some form of camoflague for hunting. And it appears to be diseased or venomous in some fashion.

A large stick or log does seem to be the best option as a weapon, though, if only because there is some inherent humorous irony in beating it down with a piece of its victims.
>>
No. 941305 ID: b1b4f3

>>941298
Since it can move quickly and you can't, the best option for you is to take it by surprise and eliminate it before it can do anything.

Optimally you want a very large sharp stick to throw at it and impale it from a distance. You could also chase/lure it into traps you've constructed ahead of time, but I doubt we have time to set up any traps.
Aside from that you've already listed several problems with attempting any kind of tactical non-brute force approach: we don't know where it is, you don't have any weapon skills or equipment or even any powers beyond growing flowers on your body, it might be hard to see, and it moves faster than you.

What options do we have, exactly? We need options to form a plan.

Also examine the condition of the bars and where they're secured. Since this place appears to be very old it's possible the bars have been significantly weakened by rust or the stonework they're mounted in cracked. Might be enough to work a bar out or work away at a rusted spot 'till one breaks.

You don't need to go back in time to fix this. Teleport her forward in in time right before she would have gotten hit by the explosion.

This way, you will avoid a paradox because after the explosion you realized she was missing. She actually vanished because she was moved forward in time by your future self.
