I don't know what that first sign is, but the second one is "heavy"

First sign probably means 'widening the gap'. I think she's saying it would be too heavy to dig through all the fish.

I don’t think anyone is going to be willing to kiss people they’ve only known for a few days.

Sounds good, let’s do this.

Now that I think about it, what was everyone doing before they came to the Giga-Chunk?

Were they sleeping in their bed at home and then suddenly woke up here or did something else happen? I really want to know how people end up coming to the Giga-Chunk.

If we have anything to write on (like the pages in the blank section of a Codex) we could pass the time trying to put together a map of what areas we've explored so far, including the locations of points of interest we've investigated. (We'll want something to help us decide a direction when we're finally out of the "finding our footing" phase of this new life.) I'd like to eventually complete the map of this chunk before moving on to any others. Have Vermillion and Jordy contribute what they traversed before we found them. Sprite, how does one tell the difference between a chunk border and a regular old biome transition? (We should use a colored line to represent the former, for clarity.)

If they weren't in that power suit you would've already crushed their skull and be on the bridge piloting your way to Flek right now.

Instead, standing right in front of you is everything wrong with the Astranian military hierarchy. Someone who doesn't know shit giving orders to someone trying to save the day.

There seems to be a large blind spot where we could approach without being noticed. As long as the soldier doesn't move and we're quieter than the sound of waves, it should be doable.

Alternatively, the soldier seems to be close enough to shoot. If we could pull them out in the open, as long as we're a decent shot, we should be able to hit them.

So the plan would be a stealthy A, with one person covering us with a gun while we approach through the water. If the soldier notices the people below, they would likely take a more open position, which would allow the person covering us to shoot them. If they don't notice us then we simply get close and do a hitman job.

See if you can get a sniper-class long-range archer for your rogue slot. With Dances-Nude laying traps and your 'Paladin' Harvess scaring the ^&*( out of the opposition, most of your higher-level threats are going to stay the @#$% away from your killzones and take potshots until you stop moving. Hire someone who can take potshots at them first.

I don't know if Dances-Nude was flirting but she seemed really ready to be flirted with and at that point the distinction isn't that important.

Dea was going to meet up with us when she was done with her current adventure and help ensure that the expedition goes as smoothly as possible since we're a rookie at leading them.

And since there's quite possibly two warriors or at least one warrior and one unarmoured bruiser in the party...

No. 943485 ID: 32b5ec

I don't believe Dances is flirting with us. To me, she simply seems very earnest and friendly.
This, however, should not stop us from being friendly and flirtatious with her when given an effective opportunity.

I'd say we find a warrior first. You've got a more passive spellcaster; we need to find a big ol' fleshwall-in-training.

Also, is Dea coming with us? What role is she covering? Have I mis-interpreted/remembered things?

CASE 2: The secret art of the great, green twin wyrms.

“…And our next piece is drawn the very talented and gifted Pilli DuGast. See the stroke work, how it splashes unto the canvas with such fury and vigor. You can almost see the emotion of the artist as he painted this masterpiece. The shape language tells us a story on its own, with the sharp angles contrasting the soft circles of its centerpiece, whiles the colors, red and green, presents us with the idea of the endless conflict of the two sides of our very soul. Tell us, Pelli, what emotional significances, what deep enigmas and thoughtful depictions are you presenting us with?”

Could it be that he has been the one painting but not the one turning them in? Maybe his brother/friend has been doing it behind his back all this time.
If his friend/brother was close to him and found his art good but he himself thought that it wasn’t he could have handed them to the gallery without their knowledge to get his art recognised thus proving his point that the art was good to him.
No. 943348 ID: e6f10c

You're gonna have to talk fast so he can't cut you off. Tell him you're a P.I., Rishi Zsazsa, hired by the Sunstrider Gallery's owner, Isabella, to find the artist Great Green Twin Wyrm, him, and get him in contact with her. Tell him Isabella's comm number and ask him to please just call her. Tell her he's the Great Green Twin Wyrm and him and her can sort out this business with his paintings. Then tell him your comm number and to call you if he wants to know any more.

He's married? Well, that's a real un-Serpens thing, isn't it? And it's rather likely that Drizu is Axio's husband, going by what you've seen so far. ...And going by the way Axio doesn't know the paintings are gone and that Drizu got all aggressive when he found out who you were looking for, Drizu is either involved in the paintings getting to the gallery or is hiding that the paintings are gone from Axio.

Also, since there's no outside comms in the club, that'd explain why Drizu didn't get in contact with Axio the second you left Drizu's office.
No. 943354 ID: b1b4f3

I don't see much reason to hide the act of donating paintings to a museum. Not unless there's something else being smuggled in with the paintings that the curator doesn't know about.
It's more likely that Tezo is making up excuses to decline- I mean, saying the paintings aren't supposed to be in the museum is one thing, but accusing the messenger of being the thief is another. It's frankly a ridiculous accusation; why would a painting thief track down the owner and invite them to the museum they DONATED the paintings to?
No. 943389 ID: bbd5f5

Well, attempting to hold an extended conversation in the middle of your respective jobs turned out awkward. That's why we said not to try and give him the whole message right now. It sounds like he's kind of in a hurry, so we should keep our current meeting as brief as we reasonably can.

Sure, we'll wink for a photo if Tezo agrees to talk later so we can explain things properly. It sounds like something suspicious is going on and we want to help him get to the bottom of it. Sharing comm numbers should be enough.

Or if he doesn't want to talk about it over the comm system for some reason, he could give us a room number where he'd be comfortable meeting with us later. If he thinks we're suspicious, would he be more comfortable if we were tied down while we were talking so we couldn't try to attack him or anything?

If we have the time, we might want to assure him that we don't mean any harm and were simply having a difficult time getting into contact with him.
No. 943409 ID: a9af05

"I was just hired to find you and deliver a message to you, which I have. If you believe your artwork has been stolen, then contact my employer at this number" *give him Isabella's number* "to tell her."

"If that's not enough to satisfy you, you can call me at this number" *give him Rishi's number* "and I'll help you find the art thief."

Then let him go and pose for the camera, without knocking any of the food off of you. Afterwards, go join Thule and hang out with him for a little bit. If Tezo wants to talk to you, he can have someone from security bring you to him or he can have someone in the security room follow you on the cameras and then he'll come to the room you're in.

she doesn't interrupt you as you tell her about what happened, but her brow furrows even though you skimmed over the supposed severity of your future actions. when you finish, she says what you knew she'd been thinking the whole time.

"they couldn't have been legitimate or they wouldn't have told you about this."

"but if they weren't, why would they bother? I can't imagine it would be easy or cheap to find someone willing to make you clothes to help impersonate an acolyte. why go to the trouble just to make a fake prophecy about one person? there would be better things to say to stir up trouble, if that's what they wanted."

"assuming you're the only one they're telling things to. eventually people would start to figure it out, but so far out here, it would cause some chaos before the lightwell could get it under control."

you shake your head slowly.

"even so, that doesn't explain why. it's just - it doesn't make sense. no matter how I try to think about it."

she looks at you contemplatively. it's unreasonable to expect her to have an answer, an easy solution that would put your life neatly back to where it was, but part of you had been hoping against hope, and you try not to let your disappointment show.

"so," she finally says. "what are you planning to do?"

Yes, it would be great for security. Trouble is, he can't use it as a reason he should be part of Vessel's security because it'd lose a fair chunk of its effectiveness if the Agents knew about it. And Omega wouldn't have much reason right now to be on security besides his ability to sense bioresonance signatures.

...Wait a second. Omega sensed two of those odd bioresonance signatures that turned out to be Outsider signatures. Figured the second one was in Outsider containment, given it's general location. But what if it wasn't in containment and just happened to be in the same general area as Outsider containment?

Omega better check his bioresonance sense for the location of Outsider signatures and ask Phi if they've got any Outsiders in containment, 'cause if they don't then there's a second one loose on Vessel.

Oh that thing is pretty big. Another option I was thinking of would be to grab the animal and move it to the well to throw the tail in, but maybe it's too big for that.

Shoot one of its arms, then TK the arm TOWARDS you.

Oh, ok, you DID summon us to find love. You don't need to explain your aims at all. Though you probably also want a dose of power along with it, perhaps some revenge. I mean, those organs and the smell of blood means our summoning is pretty ominous.

Take a relaxing position, try and float on your back and breathe, think calmly. Give us your goals in a nice check list, and we'll go to town on those goals.

Oh and be careful acknowledging our voices directly. Some of us live for that shit and can get carried away just trying to get noticed. If our collective ego gets out of hand, chaos will more likely ensue and you'll lose peace of mind. If you have any in the first place to lose. Organ's on the floor already pointing us towards not having it.

Sorry you had to like, be the ONE world we have to go to that requires that much sacrifice to contact us. Must be a really bad connection.

In the East... er, wait... in the East Crescent, a being of great evil... uh, I mean, there was a great Empire, on the edge of the... no... where was I? Damn it. The empire was in the west, wasn't it? I could have sworn it said east... Wait, hold on...

*flip flllip flip*

Right. In the West, there was a great Empire which centuries ago wrested peace from the jaws of war. Its line of rulers was good and just, and that peace was maintained for centuries. That period of order came to an end when a being of terrible evil arrived, and wreaked havoc on the lands.

That's not true. If Niklaus gains something useful that Dionaea can use, then that would count as affecting Dionaea's story, since she would use whatever Niklaus gives her.

Same thing if we make poor decisions and something bad happens to Niklaus while we're playing as him. If Niklaus gets kidnapped, injured, or killed, that would affect Dionaea's story by removing an ally that can help her.

Time may be key here. We have little of it, so be quick and concise.Though observe what he's doing to fight the other's control - as that might be useful knowledge. Consider aiding whatever that is if you are capable and it is non-obvious.

But first, immediately pitch him your game. He appears as fucked as we are while under Crown's thumbtacle, so we might as well be honest. But we need something to get under his skin more than just, y'know, Biothaumaturgy, or else he's going to tell you to fuck off again.

Meet his metaphorical eye, not in anger, but with resolve. Hug your tail for moral support if you need.

"I understand, but... Spiral is free. Awake. Alive. And I fear for it. Chalk fears for it.

My plan is to have the Vessel drain you of chaos fluids to minimize the danger of cross-contamination. Will it do? Do you know anything that can help, at all? If so, tell me and help or trust us to minimize damage while you... focus."

If he scoffs or disbelieves, you may consider reaching out to touch Chalk too, adding her and Spiral to the link. You may have to be quick and brief to avoid detection. Puh... if only there was some way to slow down time. Or... speed up thought.

Why should it? It's what you agreed to.
You agreed to aid the fetus's development, but not to complete it here or keep him under his influence.*
You agreed to deliver a independent evaluation of the Alchemist, but not that anyone else he wouldn't like would listen to that, alongside passing other information.
After all, if he wants to obey the letter and not the spirit of the deal, why can you?

*You have an ample supply of ecto and chaos fluid on hand.

Sarcasm aside, you can say that he can just keep fucking. All you need from him is for him to flip them both off the alter, onto the sand, and in your direction, maybe even on top of you. That should be easy enough to do in the middle of such rough breeding.
If this works, you can draw the sigil, grab Sable, and everyone will be out of there. Then if we're lucky, they'll write it off as an accident. If we're not, we have a head start at least.

Tell him you have a way for him, Chalk, Sable and yourself to escape Crown, with his help. Is he in or not? If he is, tell him to drag out the sex and you'll be back quick with his directions, then disconnect. Otherwise, ask him to drag the sex out to give you extra time to come up with anything.

Once you sever the link, stop Sable from draining the chaos fluid from Rentauk and pull Sable to the side of the altar on Rentauk's left. With one finger draw out the exit sigil in the sand next to the altar while writing your plan out for Sable with your other hand's finger. Tell Sable your plan is to get all four of us out of here; Sable, you, Chalk and Rentauk. He'll roll himself and Chalk off the altar, right onto us two and the exit sigil. Sable will touch you and them as they fall and activate the sigil. Will this work? Will Sable be able to send all four of us away instantly? 'Cause if not, then it's a no-go.

If it's possible for Sable to teleport y'all away, then reconnect with Rentauk and tell him you need him, on your signal, to roll himself and Chalk off the altar to his left as fast as possible. The signal is you sticking your fingertip over the lip of the altar. If he has any reason this plan won't possible work, he should say it now. If not, break the link, get yourself and Sable in position and give Rentauk the signal.

You have a confirmed position on one of the enemies. Hostages are only good for negotiation; they aren't going to think about shooting them when they have you bearing down on them, not giving them time to negotiate. I doubt the balcony guy is in any position to take hostages. The other guy might be watching the door, so that might not be the best option.

Here's my hot-take, therefore; if you're confident that you can climb up to the balcony, then I think that skill and energy is better spent climbing up the far side of the building to gain egress through the window you shot out above him, and proceeding to ambush the guy inside (wherever he is).

"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.
No. 942530 ID: acfea1

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.

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. Davina and the Lucre Witch entered a back office, and spent several hours "negotiating" plans while the rest of their respective crews res

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

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.

It doesn't, not for her. Read the previous chapters again, her compulsion to eat actually gets worse the more she eats.
