Previously, on Bord Quest!

We are Hugo Packagebord, an engineer on a colony ship headed to Borgas IV. But when we awake from our cryosleep for our maintenance shift, we find ourselves alone. Which is weird, since the previous shift is supposed to be helping the next before they take to the cryotubes. After an encounter with a possible bord-eating monstrosity from the vents, we find another Bord awake...

So, after your crotch pain subsides from getting hit by Rando Bornum with a size 100 wrench that you seized, you ask him about any possible weapons that you could get, or possible weapons you could engineer.
"I like your way of thinking! The maintenance room's this way, you might find some stuff for you." He said, in his thick Osbordian accent.

"...and here we are. Seems like the previous shift didn't return much."
You seem a bit dismayed at that news, but hey, at least there's some stuff left behind you can salvage, right?
But first, we take a look at our inventory.

IG, could I have a quick chat with you about part of the setting's continuity? You know where to find me.

Well, we have our engineer getup on, with our engineer's belt and our standard shoes on. On our back is the size 100 wrench, and in one of our pockets we have four C-Bar rations.

>What should we take from the maintenance room? Keep in mind that we still have our own two hands free.

>> No.29402564

From what we see, there's three bolts on the floor and a crowbar propped to the corner. On the wall is a cable cutter and a glue gun. You wish it was a drill, but it's a glue gun.
There might also be stuff in the shelves.

eh, slow updates are good. Just like the original Primordial games!

Well, seems like the top shelf's jammed. The bottom shelf, however, has an e-tool, a coil of cable, a screwdriver, and some more loose screws. You know from your training that the e-tool can be used to 'hack' into cables and read data or electrical outputs.

Talk to it! It might be friendly.

Tell it to calm down, and that we aren't going to hurt it. Ask it how long it was there and if it saw anything.

With a swiftness of the foot you spin around and kicks the blob long before it hit the ground.
Rando looks on as the thing sailed past his head.

To your surprise, the little blob seems to like the little game you did with it.
"Why, I think 'e likes ya!" commented Rando.

Aww, how cute! I think I'll call it Whampla.

Let's try and talk to it. Ask how long it's been here and if it's seen anything odd. Try and see if it can understand us. If not, give it a piece of our food bar and see if it likes it.

You decide to try and talk to the thing you now call Whampla, and start off with the universal greeting. Whampla just emits a confused pop as a reply.

>> No.29405405

Rolled 55

If language doesn't work, there's always prime numbers. Try chirping twice. If he pops three times, then chirp five times in response. Even with no common language, any sufficiently advanced intellect will recognize prime numbers.

After that, try some hand gestures. Make a circle sign with one hand, then point at the corner with the other. If it goes to the corner, then pat the ground to signal for Whampla to come back. Pet him if he can follow your directions.

sorry guys, IP just switched to a blocked one, and had to reset twice to get to another that's not.

You try unwrapping a C-Bar and toss it to Whampla. It seems like Whampla is happy with this development!

Okay, now that we're done playing with our slimy buddy, let's see about getting stuff. So far, we've seen:

>cable cutter
>glue gun

The question is, what's missing? Anything that isn't here has been taken by the crew and not returned. Someone else likely tried to improvise a weapon against the monster; either it worked, and they kept it, or it didn't, and they died before returning it. Knowing what's not here could be an important clue for battling the monster.

>> No.29405826

We don't know what's supposed to be inside here, but your engineer background tells you that they should have at least a drill, a welding torch, a smaller wrench and protective gear.

And whoo, I'm getting tired, let's continue this next week. Inventory update next week, and more detective work?

>> No.29405861

Eh, okay. Also on Friday?

>> No.29405966

yeah. Exactly 1 week methinks. I'll announce it on the nearest QTG around.
