So in Anticipation for the next Pen quest update I made a new shirt,I really liked the movie poster shirt from dating a murder neumono so I made an attempt to make it.
Sadly I do not have very many colors to work with witch means it’s off color.

Next shirt I’ll try to make will be the “Polo does it from behind” shirt XD.

Also I don’t know if this has been ask before but Lagotrope is there a chance for some asteroidquest merch at all
I would die for a three stripes plushie.

Also one last thing
Lagotrope you made my day too when PoloQuest 7 came up,your one of if not the Radis Quest author on the internet.
No. 124138 ID: bfb318

Thanks, and good stuff.

To answer the question re: merchandise, I've considered the possibility, but there's likely too small an audience to really do any kind of significant investment towards merch. Basic standardized stuff (stickers, t-shirts, mousepads, basically 2d stuff printed onto various surfaces) is more doable though, with very little investment required.

A three stripes plush though is pretty high up, as it requires finding someone with the skills, knowledge, and materials to make a custom shaped plush like that. I'm unsure of anyone who does that sort of thing, save for businesses that only do wholesale at a required quantity of 500+ or some such.

Admittedly, if not for the requirements for a plush, a three stripes plush would be the first merch done. Maybe someday.
No. 124139 ID: 9125e0

Thanks for the response Lagotrope I appreciate it.

I would love t-shirts and stickers too.

Well keep on Questing.

I think its Kind of funny that the first time I saw anything AsteroidQuest was on CoD blackops2
he was spawnkilling my team pretty hard and his calling card emblem was ThreeStripes,so it kept flashing across my screen for a good 5 minutes of getting spawn killed.
Bout a week later and I fownd Tgchan and AsteroidQuestIntermishon#1 was the threed I randomly picked to see what quest were.

ever since Iv roamed CoD lobbys looking for that man. lol

Faraday cage can prevent electromagnetic fields generated outside to affect objects inside but don't prevent electromagnetic fields generated inside to affect objects outside. Being inside one prevent you from receiving signals but you can still send.
No. 124217 ID: b1b4f3

Not so. Microwaves use the faraday cage effect to contain their radiation.
The blocking effect goes both ways, BUT the cage has to be grounded for that to work. If it's not grounded, then yes, internal signals can escape.
No. 124218 ID: 5b93d3

Technically grounding is only required if you want to pass signals in and out (e.g. running a conductor through the cage). If the inside is isolated, then grounding is unnecessary (and potentially counterproductive).

People seem to be putting a lot more stock in the idea of the ASE seeing Penn as a leader or object of admiration in herself than seems wise to me. Like, I think that "biological reincarnation" sounds a lot like one half of a true reincarnation, the other half being mental, body + mind. That Penn is basically a vessel pre-made for a takeover by some brain download seems like one of the more likely scenarios, and for all we know the ASE does have some sapphire brain scan they dug up sitting around waiting to go - if you wanted to entertain some indiana jones ancient conspiracy thinking, maybe the ASE are even descended from some cult that's been holding on to such a thing for thousands of years. Secret imperial/science/technology cults seem like they would have been a thing for the tribal belenosians.

The way someone looks at their god, and the way someone looks at the spare parts they could use to build their god... those would be close enough to be mistaken for each other, I think.

>"What happens if you cut a neumono in half?"
>That was already answered in ITQ. One of the earliest questions in fact.
Specifically, that was answered here. >>51355

>If they had the means, material and even the materiel to clone anyone, of any species and make an army, they would have had much better security forces other than a gaggle of crazy rokoa brain dart victims
In general, cloning tech does exist in the asteoidverse. Here's Polo talking about clone rights, and even clones used as soldiers. >>68968

Now, cloning neumono reliably and/or repeatedly the way Vanski and/or the science hive is doing is something of a recent breakthrough (although one could quibble that dart clones are cheating since you're copying over / altering an existing person instead of growing a new one entirely from scratch).

You're right that Vanski is making sub-optimal use of his resources in ways that don't make sense using experimental neumono clones for defense, but that kind of behavior is consistent with what we've grown to expect from him. (One could argue Vanski couldn't access conventional soldier-cloning tech for other species, but given the reach we've seen OPA display I don't believe that for a second).

My argument was more about the logistical problems involved in cloning, rather than the availability of the involved tech.

He is being hunted by the entire world, after all. A fact that he likely wasn't prepared for and is now scrambling to manage before his house of cards collapses on him.

Interesting. So you can regrow small parts quickly. So you just need to keep removing small pieces, keep them alive using standard brain-in-a-jar technology, then stick all your small pieces together once you have enough volume to start regeneration. And you can even speed up and improve the process by continuing to add more bits from the donor. So long as the donor is never missing more than, say, half-a-kilo at any given moment, you should have your clone up-and-running in a few months. Once you have multiple near-identical donors, the process can accelerate, and the donors can continue to be active provided that they have sufficient medical attention.
No. 126077 ID: b1b4f3

The brains from the various pieces would be desynched and probably fight one another.
No. 126078 ID: 10c408

As was pointed out, the brain matter migrates away from damaged areas and you have no way of determining what's even 'in' the removed section, let alone the neumono who has been donating.
No. 126080 ID: 094652

So the neumono body adapts to repeated amputations in the same part by taking the neural instructions to regrow that specific part, along with most of the brain for that matter, and shoves it somewhere else. Similar to how scar tissue is a crude but adaptive reaction to severe damage, only this is an evolution for regeneration and not defense.

Makes sense. I think I have an idea.

What if we ARTIFICIALLY SIMULATED repeated amputations to various areas, without physically amputating anything, and condensed the brain into a smaller area - like an actual brain? How hard would it be to convince a neumono's body into thinking their limb was amputated, by simulating the environmental factors involved like adrenaline input and partial sensory deprivation? The body is tricked into thinking a part has been decapitated, then re-attached a similar part with near-perfect synchronicity. Since it's the same limb and same nerve pathways, the sync rate should be preeetty high. But in theory, the body reacts. Less neural activity in those specific portions, more in others. By the end, you have a functioning brain of sorts in a compartmentalized area. Still dangerous, but an interesting field of study for Vanski.
No. 126082 ID: d5442a

The neumono's body may reduce the amount of brain power in a limb from amputation, but I doubt it would entirely remove it. Neumono aren't amoebas, they have skeletons and muscles and those take up the space they need to take up, so brain matter probably isn't evenly distributed so much as it collects in a few particular nodes, like a set of mini-brains. Those mini brains may be more or less developed compared to each other, but they probably don't disappear.

Simulating amputation is also probably more than just a matter of nerve and hormone stimulation. A neumono's body probably has some (usually subconscious) awareness of its own empathy and would read the absence of its limbs in that way.
No. 126085 ID: 977456

Fascinating proposal! I wonder if a compression of the mental tissues would increase processing speed. By concentrating the mental tissues in an easily-protected and low-exposure location, say, the base of the torso, one could retain most of the Neumono's advantages while overcoming their slow reaction-times. Additionally, by minimising the mental tissue in the less protected regions, their recovery times from and resistance to typical combat injuries(such as dismemberment and high-calibre rounds through the centre-mass) could be almost trivialised, while shooting from hard-cover would have minimal long-term risk.

Perhaps electrical pulses could be used to disrupt the function in the desired areas. This could even result in a net increase in mental capacity should the suppressed tissue return to full function. On the other hand, if it resulted in a disconnect with the effected regions and, for want of a better term, a civil-war, or cancer, then it could potentially be weaponised directly. Being consumed by, or consuming, a past version of themselves would be disruptive to morale and incapacitating. That said, an effective delivery system that wouldn't be better used on sedatives or explosives would be difficult to produce.

>an easily-protected and low-exposure location, say, the base of the torso

That... doesn't seem like it'd be a good place for a brain. For a lot of reasons. I don't think it's easily-protected or low exposure, and has a bunch of other disadvantages.
No. 126095 ID: 10c408

Neumono brain matter isn't distributed into sets of 'mini-brains', it is it's own additional layer that covers most if not all of the body.
No. 126096 ID: 40ae85

I wouldn't think so, that seems really sub-optimal. You could get the same redundancy with nodes, without getting in the way of your skin, muscles and bones, and probably take advantage of the bones to provide some protection instead of having literally all damage be brain damage. Basically a nervous system with some of the key junctions pumped up. Neumono must have at least some concentrated brain matter, since their skulls are pretty big can't be full of only sense organs. So if they have some brain concentration there, why not some near other key areas like the forearms, near the stomach, base of the spine, et cetera?
No. 126097 ID: 10c408

Okay, I went and looked it up on the wiki. I got some of it wrong, but they still don't have nodes or mini-brains.

And yes, this distributed placement is a bit inefficient for reaction times and learning but the sheer amount of punishment they can endure AND recover from given time and food is a helluva trade off.
No. 126100 ID: 977456

The torso-base doesn't require much mobility and is central and low for balance, so can have more armouring than any other part of the body. It is less used and exposed than limbs, so no need to throw it in people's faces where it could get bitten. It's much lower than most senses and armaments, thus the surrounding terrain is far more likely to protect it from direct attacks and shrapnel. It really seems like the best place for a critical location in a super-soldier, which seems like the appropriate MAD SCIENCE goal.
No. 126101 ID: 40ae85

The torso base is already full with your reproductive and digestive systems, the latter of which is subject to a lot of variation in weight (that's why the hips are basically shaped like a bowl, to be able to carry them). The stomach is the one area with vital organs that DOESN'T have any sort of bone protection like the skull or rib cage provides higher up, and the reason it doesn't have it is because the lower torso is a major area of articulation, being subject to all sorts of twisting, bending, curling, stretching and flexing. The torso is also the area where most people with guns are going to be trained to shoot, especially in neumono, for whom being shot in the gut is the canonical best way to quickly disable them so that's where everybody aims.

Any roughly humanoid biped with its brain in its lower torso will have a brain with:
- no in-built protection from bones except from the hips, which will only protect from a very low angle and then only in a limited way
- a lot of varying pressures placed on it by the creature's movements if it is called upon to do basically anything athletic
- even more pressure put on it by the weight of the creature's food (remember that neumono eat more than most other species)
- about as much distance from most of its major sense organs (sight, hearing, smell, taste) as can be imagined, slowing its reactions greatly and making it much more likely that it gets cut off from those senses by any bodily harm severing nerve pathways
- a high chance of serious medical danger whenever it wants to try make babies

Also you can't actually armor it heavily because the lower torso is where your legs attach and if you want to be able to run fast you are very restricted in how thick/free of gaps you can make armor in that area.

Thrice dammed by all the god's! I was just beginning to really like Miss (the pomi), and then that thread ends!
Okay, I have a mission for you, (yes you,the one reading this), should you choose to accept it.
You must make the arduous journey to fanfiction.net once there you must write a Hok+Miss romance fanfic. I don't even care if it's cheesy or poorly written or barely legible.
I would do it myself, but then I wouldn't be able to enjoy reading it now would I?
Should you complete this task for me, not only will you have my sincere gratitude, but I will also officially owe you one Major solid. That's major with a capital M, and not something I take lightly.
