[WARNING! THIS QUEST MAY CONTAIN NUDITY AND OTHER NSFW CONTENT 18+ ONLY!]

My name is Saitnen SoulSworn

I have been hunted for a life style I never wanted

I don't know who people expect me to be but I'm not it.

I'm just trying to survive.

>Do you even have that much money?
Not even close, I could probably dig up a couple hundred but that's it.
It's possible Dad left me an inheritance but I believe all his money was locked into investments.

Saitnen: " It's a scrapped production line, isn't it?"

Dr.Kissed: "All the production lines around here are scrapped, this is a graveyard for production lines."

(II)
>If all else fails, is there any favor the "good" doctor would be willing to accept in lieu of cash payment? You're neighbors, after all, and you have a history.
>Actually, what is your history with her? You didn't exactly say.

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.

(III)
>You might be better off digging up your dad's notes. He might at least have figured out how to repair those parts.
I can take a look around next time I get back to the lab.

>She is a robot. Just take the brain out and put it in a new body. Way cheaper.
Saitnen: "Would it be possible to move her over to a more resilient body? Maybe one that is modular and repairable?"

Fine, I'll consider it. But I want a bodyguard frame; Megam isn't the calculating type and I don't have enough people watching my back to assign squad members to R&D.

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.

hey you weren't there and didn't have to endure summers of "no we can't have a dog, Anne would get sick" and
"no we can't go to the park, Anne would get tired" I probably would have got over it, but she took our shunning to heart,
she became bitter and superior deciding she was so much smarter than everyone else and no longer wanted to associate with any of us.

(I)
Saitnen: "Very funny but I'm not sticking Megam into vacuum body."

Dr. Kissed: "Why not? her brain power is about on par with it."

Saitnen: "Okay, let's say I busted up a rogue bot body and brought it to you, could you plug in Megam's brain?"

Dr.Kissed: "You're talking about the MR-C unit that was apprehended in the hospital"

Saitnen: " . . . Yes, would that work?"
(II)
Dr.Kissed: "If you gave me a functioning chassis I could do it for 7000$"

Saitnen: "SEVEN THOUSAND?! just for plugging in a brain?!"

smug little rodent knows I could barely set up a watch . . .

Saitnen: "well I still can't afford it, is there anything you want besides money?"

Dr.Kissed: "If you bring over some appliances or gadgets from your father's lab I'm sure we could work out some manner of barter.

Saitnen: "I guess that's doable . . ."

Dr.Kissed: "Good Luck robot hunting."

(IV)
Saitnen: " . . . one last thing, you wouldn't happen to have an emergency shut off for Mercy would you?"

Dr.Kissed: "No but I do have this tracking remote."

Saitnen: "I guess that could come in hand-"

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.
>>
No. 757196 ID: 3abd97

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.

Dr.Kissed: "I'm impressed you even considered that."

Saitnen: "Impressed enough not to charge me for the batteries?"

Dr.Kissed: "5$"

I pay her via credit, I'll need to make a note to pay that off.

Dr.Kissed: "thank you for your business"

At least the thing works.

(III)

. . . aaaannd here's the place, kinda a crummy neighborhood but then again I AM looking for a criminal.
The tracker seems to indicate she's in the un-boarded window.

Now to decide how to make my dramatic entrance.
>>
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.
>>
No. 758297 ID: 3abd97

We've officially escalated from panty snatching to body snatching, here.

Suffer minor existential crisis. You want to help Megam, but is it really right to leave the other bot body-less?

Then remember she's kind of a jerk and came after you first.
>>
No. 760012 ID: 947562

(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."

Trill: "of course my lady."

No. 766696 ID: 3abd97

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?
(II) after nearly an hour of walking

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.

Trill: "Of course my lady, what is the next part of the plan"

Big Shot: "Te-te-te-te-te . . . let us ste-te-tart small, perhaps open the mind of a dozen?"

Trill: "I know just the place."

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.

My father had hundreds of robots anyone might classify as a "sexbot"
most of them he sold, and all of them were experiments of some kind.
he never seemed pleased with any of them.

Megam: "Off course, that's what Mr.Soulsworn wanted."

Has she forgotten who I am?
maybe her memory circuits are damaged as well.
once I have a job I'll be able to sort all of this out . . .

. . . I hope.

Saitnen's heroic career over before it's even began?
Will he get a job at the police station and show up his friend Paris?
How will he get the parts to repair Megam?
and Will the date with Emma ever happen?

Find out all this and much, much more in the next exciting issue of Soulsworn!

suggestions not required?
