[ERROR] No.8638503 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

The consequences of your actions weigh heavily on your shoulders, dragging you down to pitiable lows - and with the proof of your deeds lies cooling on the deckplate besde you, you don't think it's possible to get much lower. There's blood on your hands and you find yourself hunted by those you once called kin.

You are Xeno, Mistress of the Undying Swarm, Reaper of the Earth and Inheritor to the Lady of the Infinite Abyss... but above all, you are afraid. This was not the homecoming you expected when you once dreamt of sharing your gifts with the empire. However you came to be in this place, you awoke to find yourself a prisoner, violated by neuroelectric probes and data siphons intended to strip the wisdom of the ancients right out of your body.

Your escape was undeniably brutal, both physically and mentally, a panicked burst of violence inflicting horrendous collatoral damage on your captors. There's no more time to dwell on it, though, nor on the life cut tragically short by your actions. Your pursuers won't have given up so easily and may even now be closing in on you.

Currently, you find yourself in a spartanly furnished storage annex, although it looks woefully understocked. Bare shelves line the walls, giving the impression that the under-utilized space has never seen another living soul. You're uncertain of your whereabouts relative to the rest of the complex, save that the deck above housed the isolation lab in which you were confined. The first order of business should be to gather information.

You reach out with all your senses, perceiving the ebb and flow of information around you until finally settling on a particularly vibrant data shunt passing through the adjoining bulkhead. Spreading your fingers wide, you plunge your matter-disrupting talons through the ceramic plate and grasp tightly to the fiberoptic conduit concealed within.

Instantly, you're awash in code as you sort through the flood for context and significance. It takes point-oh-two-eight seconds to realize that the degree of encryption on this line won't bow to your casual interface.

You break through the simplistic encryption without breaking a proverbial sweat, laying bare the complex's network to your influence. It seems like your captors have instituted a security lockdown intended to keep you out of their mainframe, compartmentalizing different systems into discrete logical volumes and physically isolating their associated hardware. There's no way you can take further action from here, but it does point you in the direction of the next network junction you need to infiltrate - unsurprisingly, housed in this deck's security center.

The system's intrusion detection is almost, but not quite as primitive as the encryption algorithms - which is to say, easily evaded by an entity of your power. There will be no worry of pursuit tracking you to this data conduit, notwithstanding coincidental patrols.

Armed with a destination, you feel a surge of confidence that may not be entirely deserved. At least you're on your way out, soon to put this horrible place far, far behind you.

Yes. He asked if people wanted to continue as it was now, since several people seemed to be unhappy about how things had been going and he himself hadn't planned on coming back this early. So he decided to put it on hold.

>> No.8641025

Thanks. I can understand his decision, the story posts are great and his characters are well done and interesting, for the most part, but the way he runs the quest itself is sub-par, in my opinion.

Undead Monstrosity, of Vampire Bride Quest fame, has, for example, been much better at incorporating multiple, often contradicting, suggestions into his story posts.
With Shas it's often a matter of "first-come, first-served" if we have to decide on an action (roll 1d100, declare an action).

>> No.8641183

That was only for that one roll. For others there are different difficulty rates. For saving Tau Girl, we needed 50 or below, with each increment of 10 below making her more and more whole. For other, simpler things we might only need a 70. He doesn't do a flat 50/50 all the time.

Seems to be the case. Though it's worth joining just for the conversations.

>> No.8641362

It dosn't really help that even when he says first three we get a flood of retards. Sometimes I think there are people who deliberately try and sabotage the quest. Like those noko rollers we had in some of the last threads.

>> No.8641399

Most of Vampire Bride Quest was an unbearable heap of MAIM BURN KILL too, but a brief visit to tgchan has made this a lot more tolerable.
If I had found a reasonable solution, I would be running my own quest by now.
