And what you need to do is of course to consider how messed up your father's legacy is, and how what you just did was complicit in it. Yes panties power your armor, but it's one thing to profit from humiliating someone who just tried to murder you and a very different thing to profit from humiliating someone who did nothing to you and was simply an easy target. If you want to improve the world instead of being just another costumed maniac you'll have to do better at remembering the difference, and that starts with apologizing and giving them back if you haven't already fed them to the machine.

Why did you yank your little sister's panties from her butt. Why.

Shame on you.

Now seriously, get her new clothes, and pick out replacement parts for the eye socket and right arm. You might want to ask her where to find storage and a crafting table.

Also, does she have an ID or did your dad refuse to personify her for sex toy reasons? Actually, is she your sister or did your dad have some colleagues who worked on her as a side project? And of course you need to ask her if she knows anything about this @#$%ed up suit of STD perversion.

>What were her duties for your father, anyways? A lab assistant? A maid? What are her skills?
basic assistance mostly, polishing things, cleaning dishes, fetching things from the store that sort of stuff.

(I)
Saitnen: "Uh, no? My dad kinda built this gear that feeds on panties, you know how he is"

I give her back her pants but keep the panties.

Megam: "Yes, I understand . . . Why have you reactivated me? I am still damaged."

Saitnen: "I was kind of hoping you could point me in the right direction for getting you repaired."

Megam: "Is your father not available?"

(II)

Saitnen: "He's kinda dead now."

Megam: " . . . oh, I was not informed . . . I'm sorry"

Saitnen: "Don't worry about it,happened while you were offline, anyone else?"

Megam: "A.R.K. Systems has the schematics and assembly parts to repair me."

Saitnen: "Uh don't you remember? A.R.K. Systems closed it's doors a year ago."

Megam: "I was not informed. Is Doctor Noah Kissed availible?"

Saitnen: "Oh come on! Dr.Kissed died three years before you where first turned online"

Megam: "I-"

Saitnen: "Yeah, yeah 'you were not informed', I get it."

Megam: "Perhaps I should power down.

Saitnen: "The A.R.K building might still have a few parts kicking around, could be worth a look.

(III)

Megam: " . . . I will go there, do not worry I will clean the floor before I leave."

Saitnen: "Clean the floor?"

I take a closer look at the dirt she's noticed, it's kind of in a strange pattern.

No. 746020 ID: c94b69

Looks like tire treads. Only one set, so either something came out, something went in and then cleaned itself somehow before leaving, or something went in and is still in there. Inspect the police tape, does it look like it's been removed and then stuck back in place? Also, does the door open in or out, or slide, or what? Inform Megam she does not need to clean this, it may be a clue or evidence.

So she doesn't have the technical experience to work on / help with your gear? Oh well. Although I suppose it's possible Dad was just under utilizing her, just because he wanted a maid.

>>746016
ARK should have it's plans and files stored somewhere, even if they went out of business. Or failing that, whoever bought their liquidated assets on the cheap when they went out of business should. (Or if all else fails, there's the patent office).

>not informed (3x)
You need to give this poor girl access to a television, or a radio, or a computer with the internet, or something. She shouldn't be dependent on what scraps of information people decide to tell her. Especially if you're going to be leaving her alone here in between visits.

>I will go there, do not worry I will clean the floor before I leave.
Hey, good eye! Drag marks. Or tire tracks. These might be a clue.

Hey, this is an order. As of now, looking out for your own well being is a higher priority than cleaning. I appreciate you wanting to help, but don't push yourself too hard, okay?

The microwave doesn't talk. ...and even if it does, it doesn't treat you like a person, or share your understanding for what a perverse jerk your dad could be.

>Officer Cap: "Oh Hello Mr. Soulsworn, Sorry about the inconvenience but the investigation is still underway."
That's okay. Did the crime scene guys manage to match these tracks to anything? A tire thread, maybe?

Does the trail continue past the fence? Can you follow it?

If we can't follow this lead (or the best we can do is encourage the cops to figure out what made this for us), I think the next thing you should do is poke around the ARK building, see if you ca find something to find robo(-won't-admit-she's-a)-sis.

This end of the tire tracks leads away; where in the lab is the other end? Also, inspect the fence. Can you tell whether it has been broken inwards or outwards?

Take a look at the fence wires. Are they bending out, or in?

... I got nothing.

The road's perfectly clean, but that's just the street sweepers that the city commissioned. None of the rails have been broken, so using an all-terrain vehicle to dive into the water is silly and unlikely. Building a new road over the tire tracks is madness, that hatch doesn't go under sea level at low tide, and A.R.K. could just confiscate your dad's work with some bull^&*( legal work if they needed to steal it.

The funny thing is how those tracks are extremely perpendicular to a narrow road overlooking a sharp set of cliffs. How many drivers enter the road at a 90 degree angle? My guess is that the vehicle used was smaller than a car, possibly capable of turning in place. A robot? Either way, it's still someone stealing your stuff, and there are too many robots and vehicles in this city to narrow the perpetrator down with tire tracks.

Well if they're one of a kind you'll just have to keep an eye out for them. Not sure if that makes it more likely the treads belong to some custom vehicle the baddies used, or if they're from something your dad built and they stole.

Mercy looks decidedly not psychopathic. If she was made here, that probably means at least one former employee here would know enough about her inner workings to reprogram her into a psychopath… or perhaps how to taint a replacement part that would cause her to go nutso.

Why did this place get shut down, again? And what other robot models did this place design? I'm thinking you ought to take a look at any surviving former employees and make sure you double or triple-check any replacement parts you can find, just to make sure we don't wind up with a Robot Master situation on our hands the second you fix up Megam. I mean, really, would an evil/mad scientist bent on world domination through corruption of friendly everyday robots be a surprise after everything that's happened, recently?

there was some big issue with robots over seas ten years ago, I don't remember the details, A.R.K. systems was going down hill ever since, they finally closed down last year.

Whatever quibbles you had with her in the past, it's time to set them aside. Stop antagonizing her. You're here because Megam needs parts, and Anne probably wants to know about the rogue Mercy unit.
The Mercy unit was probably sent by Anne in the first place, so don't be surprised if she says as much. However, you need to set aside the murder attempts at the moment because Megam needs help much more than you need to get into a pissing contest with an ineffectual villain.
Besides, she's probably pissed at you because of your father; I see no reason to fight over your mutual agreement that your father was an ass.

Okay, gotta stay focused on why I'm here, and not get into petty bickering, Anne is the only person I know who could fix a robot.

(I)

Saitnen: "Hey so I have a robot named Megam, she got kinda broke in the arm and face, can you fix her?"

Dr.Kissed: "oh yes, I recall selling your father an Additor-89 several years ago. He had made her a bit of a pet project, he was very interested in fixing her factory flaws and sent me copies of his reports and efforts. Ultimately his efforts proved futile and he eventually lost interest.

Saitnen: "Factory flaws?"

Dr.Kissed: "When Az-tech industries developed the Additor series they designed them as vanity products and typically were made fragile so as to encourage purchasing replacements when they inevitably broke down. I can't imagine the cruelty required to build a being so ill equipped to survive in the world."

I get the distinct impression Anne could imagine a lot more cruelty than that . . .

(II)

Saitnen: "So can you fix her? she's missing an arm and eye."

Dr.Kissed: "Of course I can, however the Additor series are not modular and Az-tech did not create repair kits, thus every new part has be manufactured separately. It can be done, but would be prohibitively expensive 15,000$ would be the best estimate I could give you without seeing the damage for myself.

Saitnen: "Holy hell! I could buy a whole new robot for that price!"

Dr.Kissed: "That's the idea."

It's a scrapped production line, isn't it? Aren't there spare or broken chassis we can harvest parts from instead of manufacturing brand new ones?

That's how you fix old cars, after all. You buy a second parts car to strip for parts, or you get the parts you need cheap from junkyards.

Alternatively, could we jury rig components from other product lines? There's likely compatible tech out there, having everything match perfectly isn't so much an issue.

Long story short, my dad, Paris's dad and Noah Kissed were all business partners, they had the great idea that their children should all be friends and forced us to spend time together, for the most part it actually worked out.

Me and Paris got along and played all manner of action games, his sister and my brother both seemed to like fashion and poetry a whole lot.

Anne however was a huge nerd who liked boring things like board games and math, combined with the fact that she was allergic to everything, and got exhausted after a walk up stairs ensured that she was the least fun person to be around.
Anne was a chore to be around, She taught me what it meant to really hate someone.

Sorry, but even with her terrible sense of self worth, a downground that far would have to hurt.

If I found the parts myself, would you be willing to do the repair work on commission? Alternatively, is there anything you're interest in besides cold hard cash? Maybe you could trade some kind of favor for a favor.

>She taught me what it meant to really hate someone.
Hating someone because you don't share an interest or cause they're physically unable to do things is pretty low, man.

Give her $160 and sarcastically claim that she's so super intelligent that you become a dum-dum in her presence. Then, forcefully rip her clothes off and steal her panties, claiming that she specifically said that was the deal, and that you're too stupid to remember that was sexual harassment. She'll have to decide between suing a fugitive and preserving her ego.

Obvious question:

If I turn on the tracking device, will she be able to tell? It doesn't help as much if it just lets me track her right into an ambush.

Second obvious question:

Does it work? I don't need to pay for repairs, or calibration, or some super rare battery before I can use it, do I?

>$80
Honestly that's probably a fair price for the hardware before we even consider function. I say you buy it.

>she became bitter and superior deciding she was so much smarter than everyone else and no longer wanted to associate with any of us.
So you were all dicks to each other. Maybe you should all grow up and stop acting like sulky children over it.

>what else
Remember to at least discus this with Megam before going through with sticking her in another body. She has a right to have a say in what happens to herself.

No. 758189 ID: 3663d3

don't be dramatic. have your defenses up but just knock on he door. she hasn't technically done anything wrong yet. and she was already released from prison over what happened before, so according to the cops she's innocent. if she strikes you after you just knock on the door then whatever. but for now pretend it really was a virus that made her crazy. if she actually asks what you want you can apologize for the panty thing and do that whole explaining who your dad is, relations to ark and your desires to not die.
>>

(I)
that robot technically hasn't done anything illegal (that I know of) since she was released from prison. I should probably hold off on the dramatics and try to just knock on the door like a normal person.

which probably would be more appropriate if I was dressed liked a normal person

(II)
As I get close to the door I can her people talking inside . . . maybe a little sneakiness can't hurt.
she's seems to be having a conversation with her lawyer.

Trill: "And these will even work on humans?"

Czaro: "They will work on en-ee-thing."

Trill: "Perfect. You should really consider working for us on a more permanent basis, I can assure your we would pay very well for someone of your persuasion."

Czaro: "I have a great deal of work to do. Please leave."

Trill: "Fine, fine. but you'll need us again. And our assistance won't come so cheap next time."

Czaro: "I un-dur-stand. Please leave."

So either he brought something shady, or he brought something completely normal and the dialog you overheard out of context makes it sound shady.

Bursting in and just attacking anyone would only be proving Paris right. You can't afford to be an asshole vigilante, here.

>what do
We're probably better off following Trill to see if we can learn anything from him. We can easily find Czaro again with the tracker.

Don't confront him in the hall, that will just get her attention. She's not deaf.

I gotta find out more before I make any rash decisions, I have no idea what's in that case so I can't confront Trill on it, not yet at least.
I should tale him and see where he goes, I can always use the tracker to find Czaro again later.

(I)

that's odd, with a fancy suit like that I'd expect him to be heading down town, but instead he's going further into the slums.
Where are you going Trill?

Maybe the docks?
but what would a criminal defense lawyer need to head to the docks for?

I was right about the docks, and we're at the edge of town so unless he plans to start swimming Trill's reached his destination, looks like he's headed for that number 13 building.

construction sounds perfect for a man in a super suit. how many I-beams do you think you could lift?

also, you were keeping an eye on trill because he's in contact with someone that wanted to kill you, specifically you were going to body snatch them for your robot to drive instead. so after you send in a job application go back to her place and see if she still wants to fight you.

first to 9, talk to Czaro. if non-hostile explain you have a robot who's body is damaged and is suffering, leads to an intact or mostly intact body would be good. if she attacks you then beat them up, shut them down, and take them to your house to pick up your robot then take them both to ark so anne can do the brain swap.

if you are just given a lead then head there if you can, if the lead would take too much time then just head home and change, put gear in a suitcase and take it with you.

if you have have time left then head to the police station, you will be in nice clothes so you can apply, and paris will be weirded out by the fact you actually did take the gear off.

then head for date.
