Journal Entry #41

Hey, journal. I'm technically not home right now so this is more of a mental entry. My class all went on a trip to the Aelor homeland and uh... We got all split up. A few of us made our way to a seemingly abandoned city and we found Tessa in a well.

We also found a giant mysterious monolith!
That was guarded by a dragon.

Oh and that dragon is now staring at me.

Tali, channel your magic into us so we have a fuel source.

Then WE'LL cast the comfy magic.

Then you can have sex with this idiot or crush their head with a rock or whatever.

Don't waste an innocent and defenceless rock when there is a perfectly good dragon out there. Not that you need to pulp the ceer if they are incapacitated, but then again, dragon-chow is expensive...

Personally speaking I think the only magic we can and should do is strip dance to Jodeci's "Freak'n You".

Use the Ceer book as a focus for casting the spells. It's a Ceer artifact.

I click my tongue against my teeth, disapprovingly. A lot of members of the Aggregate - myself included - do their best to balance relationships inside and outside of the hivemind, spending just as much time as their friends or loved ones who haven't joined the Aggregate. Acting all high and mighty just because you're a member of the Aggregate is sort of frowned upon.

It's not their fault, Lane says hastily, as I set off down the sidewalk. It was just kind of new and cool to them. They weren't ignoring me on purpose...can we talk about something else? I don't think I want to go over my relationship drama with a stranger, if that's cool.
No. 910390 ID: b7505e

umm, let’s get to know him! more casual questions, normal stuff - we might be sharing a head w him now, but its nice to start from the top; especially since now we know abt smth so intimate
No. 910395 ID: 70df1e

to be fair we arent strangers anymore, and we're going to be spending a lot of time together.

but if he'd rather not focus on that, that's fine. still, just make a little mental note there so that we can look into it later if we want to. maybe tell him more about the detective youre going to see?
No. 910401 ID: 1872dc

I mean, he's in your head. Not exactly a stranger anymore. I guess that's just a newness to the Aggregate thing, though. Not that that means he needs to spill his secrets of course, so try asking something else. Small talk about work.

Also, you've got a badass vibe, Esme, just wanted to say.
No. 910624 ID: ee3259

I guess tell him how your jobs works and how things are probably going to go down. Maybe tell him to keep calm in case things get graphic.

Has anything else like this happened in the time you've been a member of the Aggregate? Have you heard of anything before that time?

Maybe if questions are a problem, you could just not ask anything. Make statements instead. For example, rather than asking "Could anybody steal somebody's life and face?" just say you found a guy with his face melted off and his life missing. If Candor wants to respond, that's fine, and if not, that's fine too.

1-As known space becomes ever more crowded and claustrophobic, the innumerable residents of the innumerable overpopulated worlds will inevitably spend at least one night of their lives dreaming of unpolluted air and untrodden toes. To spend one day without being physically stuffed shoulder to shoulder during work, rest and play.

2-Many settle, unwillingly, for virtual realities in many forms or the many surgical options that promise to dull the anxieties or remove concerns all together. For those with the means there exists one ultimate solution. Single subject expeditionary teleportation, one way.

3-For the cost of a single-use teleportation-shock-proof suit, a bag of survival needs, and joining two points over lightyears of cosmic mystery. Any single person of suitable fitness and regulatory agency satisfying reputation can be sent to an untouched corner of the most current probe charts. To a statistically-likely-to-be-liveable world that has never suffered a single penis enhancement e-mail or alternative energy marvel.

For a significantly reduced cost, pirates will make all the same promises.

Most people prefer the lobotomy to either.

4-The teleshock kicks some automation to life and incredibly dim lights wink on to no untamed alien landscape. A nameless protagonist drops her blown-out helmet to a bare cement floor and breathes a lungful of just-barely circulated air. Aside from tiny claws scrambling over metal, and the fading rumble of a shockwave bouncing back from corridors unknown, there is only her quiet breathing. It is a new and exciting sound to her.

She happily breathes in place, with no greater obligation than the need for air,

Fuck, this quest is just coming apart at the seams now ain't it? I think it's about time I let it die. Trust me, you aren't missing out on much.

Here is a protip: Don't base your quest on "No Man's Sky."

I'm going to write a conclusion for the archives. I have lost enough sleep from this quest already though, so I'm going to wait 'til next week to do that.

This was fun. Thank you TG Chan. Audios!

I'm trying to decide if it's a good thing or a bad thing if she recognizes you as having players. Does that make you someone to cooperate with, or a competitor? If this is a game, there's a lot of rules we don't know.

>[???]: "Then, prove it: what is the square root of 3?"
Root 3. It's already as reduced as you can get it without introducing inaccuracies and rounding errors.

It is dusk at the Village on the Hill. The harvest sunset illuminates the countryside in a brilliance of oranges and yellows as it sinks beyond the horizon. A constable of ravens fly into the distance, their caws echoing off the rolling hills.

Inside a house within the tiny village, a familiar red-haired witch settles in for the evening.

Anita: "I think we're good to go."

Zoe: "Alrighty. Let's set up the megascope."

As the witches take long drinks from the mana potions, Zoe and Rochelle retrieve several pole-like objects from their damaged shop. They set them up in a triangle formation and plug crystals into a hatch in the bases. The megascope hums to life, and magical energy fires from the poles to coalesce into a single point. At that moment, the portal the kunoichi used re-opens.

Zoe: "You got a couple options here: you can go to the destination the original portal was set to, or we can adjust the megascope to put you in a random location somewhere close to the original destination. It won't be in a solid object of any kind, so you don't have to worry about being telefragged."

No. 910035 ID: 094652

It's a matter of management. We could invest more time and effort into assisting an entire district in pulling itself back together than attempting to restore Terroza's honor, but if turning Terroza grants us a mole in the department with special training perks, with the eventual goal of neutralizing the source of all this corruption, then it MIGHT be worth the risk. There is always worth in doing what you can. The question I'm asking is, is it worth the risk and effort to at least attempt to save Terroza? Or should we kill her to maximize Justinia's probability of survival?

>The question I'm asking is, is it worth the risk and effort to at least attempt to save Terroza?

Attempting to save Terroza would involve getting her to run away, which would shortly result in her reporting to her superiors which would expose Ema as a wraith.

That's no good.
No. 910065 ID: 10c408

If we off Terroza, there's now one less corrupt influence in the guards making things worse for everyone.

That.... is the dumbest series of events ever. Also, tell the rest of the crew that Adam's gone crazy and stolen all our stuff.

Also, remind our jailor that you have magical purple-shit-detecting eyes.

Also, Flukebiter, why is your bioweapon hostile to its creator? Why would you NOT specifically include loyalty in its coding?!
No. 909629 ID: ad51b8

>speak for Flukebiter fairly and as clearly as possible
I'm honestly going with this because I'm hoping that without you causing friction you'll be more and more ignored. Especially if you can actually find this guy and everyone starts focusing on him to get everyone out. Then while everyone is more worried about getting the hell out of here you escape not only from this place but also from you keepers.

You're already caught right now so might as well play nice fore now so people will start focusing on everything else and put you at the back of their mind. Plus if you twist things, once you actually get to Flukebiter he'll probably call you out which will probably bite you in the ass.

Did you design your bioweapon with intelligence or sentience? Because that's what it sounds like.

On a hunch, it sounds like it's trying to grow, and the only thing stopping it from overrunning the planet is that you're on some sort of ice world hostile to biological life.

>...Any further questions?
Yeah. Escape now sounds like it will end in freezing to death, so what's the plan? What exactly are we supposed to do that will get us out of this mess of yours while fending off a rogue bioweapon, dealing with an isolationist salikai, and fighting amongst ourselves?
...How did we even get here? It doesn't sound like our dysfunctional group is in Kansas anymore.
No. 909993 ID: ad51b8

...so this is all, at least partially, your fault?

So what was this bioweapon supposed to do and please tell me you at least had some way to counteract it incase it did ever breach contaminate and get lose.

trying to romance marcie again is inappropriate, and weird. go tug naz's collar, and figure out what jimmy and your old squeeze are up to.

No. 909372 ID: 7c90bc

Look chuck, this should be easy for you, you already know her. Just talk to her, be yourself, pretend you really have never met her before. Be friendly and charming and make some off color references that will fly directly over her head.

Inevitably you'll get choked up or nervous about what was lost, just remember what you did the first time round if you need to fake it for a bit. If the entire situation breaks down, just apologize and tell her the truth.
No. 909388 ID: 2a7417

You'll never be able to separate the old Marcie from the new in your mind, and that's not fair to either of them. Move on from that part of your life, you're chasing plenty of other tails.
Go find the ghost for instance, see how many are in the house now.

You’re surprised to have slept through the night. You figured that once the fire died out you’d wake up freezing and have to find some more wood, but instead the sun on your face pulls you from sleep. You feel warm.

The couple is already rolling up their tent and preparing for the final stretch to Thistle. Penny sits across the fire pit wrapped in her blanket. You climb out of your bedroll and rummage through your bag. You toss an apple to Murmur, one to Penny, and keep one for yourself. She accepts it and plops down next to you.

Its an awkward topic to reach but eventually you tiptoe towards it.

“Your sister huh? You want the miracle for her?”

Penny answers noncommittally. The question is unexpected. You get the impression it isn’t something that comes up outside the intimacy of a night by the fire. Probing for further information annoys her and she rises to pack up camp. You move to do the same and the day’s journey starts sourly.

The awkwardness hangs in the air throughout your walk and the two men sense it. They fall back to get some distance.

It’s more difficult to walk today, the snowmelt has turned the trail to mud. You piled your jacket onto Murmur’s back along with your other belongings hours ago. It feels like the beginning of Autumn. The only chills you feel are the occasional clumps of snow sloughing off of the trees above.

This close to a town it isn’t strange to run into travelers but you still take wide arcs around the campfire smoke plumes you see. Beginning about an hour outside of Thistle it becomes impossible to go a hundred yards without seeing a tent or camp set up.

Trees fall away and you finally get your first look at Thistle. An inn in the distance. You can hear music even from here and smell something cooking. The day has been unseasonably warm but your sure it’d be a nice option to sleep indoors for whatever the night brings.

Orion and Caleb are reinvigorated when they see the inn, excitedly untying their bags from Murmurs saddle.

”We’re grabbing a real dinner! Are you two going to join us?”, one asks. The blonde one. You still don’t have the names down.

Penny agrees to join.

You ponder what you should do with the remaining hours of daylight.

Agree to staying with them at the inn. Having a base of operations during your mission will be a boon. Take the time to apologize to Penny and explain that you're an herbalist by hobby; you were wondering if there was something you could do if looking for a miracle worker doesn't pan out.

You stick around with the crew you’ve accumulated and tie off Murmur in the stable.

Indoors its crowded, hot, and smokey. You hear somebody laughing overwhelmingly loud. You’ve lived as a hermit for all of winter up until this point, this isn’t your natural habitat. A table in the back is open and as you settle in you tell Penny that dinner’s on you. She smiles.

“What, cause you feel bad?”

She elbows you jokingly. You’re just happy you didn’t burn a bridge.

The owner of the inn bounces table to table and finally makes her way over to you.

”New faces! She leans against the table and props her serving tray against her hip. ”What can I do,” she asks, scanning the table. “Beers? Cider?”

The inn's serving stew for dinner and you opt for that. Penny asks for pumpkin pie and you raise an eyebrow.

“Do you have any rooms open?” you ask.

”How long’re you staying? I can get a room set up for tonight. Someone’s yelling for her and she yells right on back for them to hold their horses. She turns back to you and laughs it off. “I’ll be back with your food, holler for me if you need anything. Name’s Effie!”[/i]

After such long travels your party falls into comfortable silence, and you watch the other conversations around the room. Most people have traveling gear with them. If the weathers like this all winter no wonder it attracts folks.

Orion and Caleb start discussing with each other how they’re going to appeal for a miracle. From what you gather they want to share one, in the hopes that that’ll make them more worthy of it. This is so damn confusing.

Before you set foot in there, check under that rug for some sort of magic circle.
No. 899523 ID: b1b4f3

Hey, you should raise a skeleton and send it in there ahead of you. That way if there are any traps, the skeleton will get hit instead of you.
No. 904910 ID: 778df3

The shadow of the person doesn't match the profile of someone laying down. Its probably a trap for you in some way, probably relating to that previous person. Spectral Senses?
No. 905012 ID: 977456

First, don't step on the rug and keep an eye on the mounted head's eyes.
Second, you don't have the preparations and knowledge to start a cult, you have already left evidence, and this town is pretty small and religious anyway, so a cult here is not looking like a good idea. Just kill and keep(loot) and kip then cut-and-run. There will be plenty of time for diplomacy at the next place when you have money and a persona ready.
Third, if it is a child then it is probably some sort of quest-objective loaded with negative karma. Kidnap them and teach them to be your high-priest while travelling to the next place. Otherwise, just kill them.

Can you store all your power, kill some random traveller, gain one of the starting powers, then repeat the process until you have all the starting powers stored then reclaim them for the complete set at bargain prices?
If not, can you store your power, start on a different path, then reclaim it and get different powers? If you just need to kill one low-level soul to completely rearrange your abilities it would make things much easier.
No. 908290 ID: 470289

Check the room and under the rug for any bolt-holes. If there's a trap it's not for you, so diving out a window should be a good backup plan.

>"also... "crawled out of a gutter" What? Is that normal for ghosts?"
Pretty sure. Something about your soul violently detaching from your body that makes it wake up not that close to it. I woke up at a truck stop. Though I'm not incorporeal, duh. Sometimes undead wake up next to their bodies, though I don't know if that's lucky or just, y'know... If that sucks ass.

>"Ask him if he believes in life after death."
It'd be a little hard not to, I guess, unless you're catastrophically ignorant. Over half the population of this town was alive once, and now aren’t anymore. Or never were, sometimes. We're mostly life after death. Heaven? Don't know about that one. I've heard of ghosts growing faint, though, forgotten or just... losing strength. Electricity. and disappearing. Whatever comes next isn't my business.

I hesitate, searching this guy's face for any signs of vague recollection. "Ddddoooees it?"
I make a noise. This is probably useless, but, "was it a long one? short one? Anything about cheese?"
The ghost just laughs, airy, strange, not really there but definitely audible. Wispy, I think. "Cheese? That'd be awful. I'd want to be something like, euh, well. I guess being called Sentinel would be pretty neat. Or the Groomsman of the Crypt. Something fitting, y'know?"
"Haha, yeah." Definitely useless. "Uh, also," I look back at Copper, who's trying to cover the body with his body. Subtly. "I mean, you're a lot more... uh. I mean, a lot more, uh... ghosty than I, but as you can see, I have no problem with wearing things." I pull at the pockets of my raincoat to demonstrate. "Know where we are?"

It occurs to me Copper'd probably let me have a look-see around our guy's apartment. I don't know if bringing the ghost of him along would be a great move, but I also maybe feel a little bit weird about leaving him to his own devices. Ghosts and skeletons, people don't really notice us. Which is sometimes great, and sometimes, when it comes to social or economical standing. Anything else rules though. Except for those. It'd be great if this guy could somehow just know that he's of lower social standing even than when he was alive and be great at dealing with it.
"Cops," I mutter over my shoulder. "Try asking the cat if there were any unfamiliar smells around. If she's from here regularly, she might just know." I hesitate, thinking. Then add, "and find out about cameras. From buildings, dashcams, anything that might've caught what made this guy end up from his murder scene all the way up here. Cars, vans. Whatever."
Copper growls. "A please would work."
"Dock it off my pay. Can I have the apartment key?"
He presses it into my palm. Awesome. Time to pretend at being a crime solver.
The keys have a small, carved number on it. 21a. When I start walking out of the alley and around the building to get to the front entrance, I don't have to decide whether or not to call ghost boy to follow, because he just does. He clearly has a bit of trouble with the fact his legs aren't really necessary to keep him up and moving anymore, shoving them uselessly in place instead of just willing himself to float. When he catches up, he immediately starts talking. "Where're we going? Is there food? I'm real hungry. What're you a consultant for? You hang around other dead people a lot?"
No. 908157 ID: 270774

“we’re heading to your apartment, so i hope you had food around.” (is it normal for a ghost to want to eat? even if it isn’t, just act like it is.)
you consult on alive people becoming not-alive people, and.... honestly, kindle, it seems to me like you don’t hang around with much of ANYONE, dead or otherwise.
and uhhh. ask him if he just wants to keep using his alive-person name. it’s cute.
No. 908184 ID: c0641d

"We're heading up to your apartment to look for clues. I'm a police consultant, which in this case means I'm supposed to help figure out who did this to the alive person that you used to be - that being the poet once known as Pale Gouda - so the police can apprehend them, because making an alive person... not alive; that's a crime, in case you didn't know. By the way, you cool with keeping that name?"

(So wait, if the living can't see you guys... are dead people even suspects? What are you actually doing here, if it can be left to the living police? Or did you only mean that literally, and the living know your kind is roaming about even if they can't always see it? On another note; Pale is so precious.)

OUR name is Kindle.

Since you're reinforced with nanogoo and have a goo-girl clone backup that means you can enjoy every young adult's favorite hobby of dangerous extreme sports without having to really worry about what happens if you get killed.

So go out and do some x sport snowboarding on a volcano or something. Take Graphene with you, train her to be your rad dog. What crazy daredevil doesn't need a mechanical canine sidekick?

You could play chess.
Or go help shoptits at the store.

Actually, can default or graphene do any sort of 3D printing? without leaving nanomachines in the end product of course.
No. 908104 ID: 977456

Lack of architectural background + overenthusiastic half-tonne dog with matter-erasure function = sad house. Non-innuendo plans named "Basement Expansion" will lack my vote pending further elaboration.

Attempt to prank [Default at work] by convincing [Defaults at home] to transmit instructions to "Expand the Basement" directly to DaW's nanite distribution systems without alerting the 'consciousness'. Maybe hide it in junk data. They could spam asking if the new guy is hot, then admit that they are just doing it to prank themselves, followed by a discussion on self-deprecating humour. That should provide plenty of signals too annoying to look too closely at, and it even admits that it is a prank, but hides the body-modding prank behind an annoying spam prank. It is also a useful experiment into information warfare. If Default can trick Default into a rounder rump, then someone else might be able to trick Default into becoming Giant Deadly Spikes Everywhere while holding All of the Orphans.
