You are James Fucking Henderson.

Father. Director. Survivor. Nutjob. Dead Man.

It has been a full year since Susan, your lover died. Despite being revealed as a traitor, it hurts. It hurts like a bitch. Surprisingly more than having to leave your actual wife and son behind to continue trying to savethis shitty world.

It's been a whole fucking year since the Xenomorphs were broken out under the direction of a shady group of conspirators, a group of conspirators with seemingly endless resources and competance.

With a year of acess to C45513's memory banks and surveillance footage, the records Maxi kept against organisaitonal policy and a whole lot of paranoia, you were able to make some headway.

> There is at least one metahuman traitor
> There is at least one psychic or magical traitor
> Incorrect or missing Personnel reports suggest traitor in intel
> Maintenance sabotage being constantly repaired suggests extensive infiltration of maintenance being matched by loyalists
> Dead Drop for Sue was dropped by someone wearing a Chem "Guest" Hazmat suit. Gender unknown less than 6ft tall

Summary: In this quest, we're basically playing as a slowly mutating soviet named Stojan insert Russian last name here who secretly supports the monarchy and hates the communists. We've managed to escape the Russians, and now we're in 1939 Nazi-occupied Warsaw. We've also got a new character called Douglas Bison who is a Sean Connery agent, but less smart, a bit more lustful, and also much more aggressive. He already has a nerdy girlfriend too! Oh, and he got shot... And is of course, more buff.

Having a famous parent can be a real bother, especially if they're an evil ruler of the land. You'd think being the son of the wicked queen of the borderlands wouldn't be so bad, but all your life she's coddled you and prevented you from achieving your own greatness! Sometimes you wish she would go on another evil crusade, so that you'd have the chance to stand on your own two feet for once.

Alas, you simply cannot wait for that possible day and have finally decided after many years contemplating and planning, to escape from her doting clutches and become your own overlord. To make a throne for yourself, rather than sitting hers when she passes it to you. Or maybe not an overlord, but at least you'd like to not still be living in mother's shadow.

Before you leave though, you intend to collect your inheritance early. That is to say, you're going to steal as many valuables as you can, and flee into the night and lands beyond!

They can stay with us today, we'll drop the three off in a nearby town but in the meantime they should pull their weight. They can help around the coach and inside by cleaning and cooking if they can.

I think is for their best interest to saty with us, actually.

Since it would be safer to go with us if they want to keep going to that miracle, and I asume that we have food while they have nothing.

Our relationship with them should improve if we help them go to that miracle and tell them about freeing more slaves. Not mistreating them also helps.

No sure they would like our friendly aproach considering their 'elven pride', but I agree with being cordial to an extent.

We don't want to be too friendly out of nowhere, especially considering how we got them, or we could make them think that we have ulterior motives, or weird then out

You are Joe B. Roundman. A genius teenager that decided to become a hero to protect his city, Bluesville from the massive waves of crime that have been arising lately.

Right now, you're investigating the murders of several taxi drivers that happened in one night.

Your last action was going to one of the victim's apartment and recolect all the evidence that you could find.

The two of you look around the perimeter of the camp for a while before you come across anything. However, after a while you come across a path of blood and feathers. Nodding to each other you start to follow the trail.

The trail goes on for a while into the forest. Every once in a while you lose the path, but you manage to find it after a while. However, after you make it to a river the path goes cold completely. You look around the whole area, but you can’t seem to pick up the tracks of the group.

You look around and see that the forest stretches out in front of you. In addition to that there is the river which flows gently/

“Well I think we should follow the river,” you say looking over at him. “Since the trail ends here it makes sense that we should check down the river.”

“That’s sound enough,” says Tiberius looking over at the river. “Let’s be on our guard though. We need to make sure that we don’t get jumped by the Asheran’s. We don’t exactly know whether or not they are at the end of this river.”

You nod in agreement at this and start walking down the river.

As the two of you walk down the side of the river Tiberius spots some bloodied feathers on its banks. Encouraged by the sign that they came this way the two of you start to examine the river more intently. However, your search turns up nothing of any valuable.

After walking for a rather long time the two of you come to the beach. Nothing greats you upon your arrival other than the calming sound of the ocean’s waves and breeze. As the sun begins to set bringing night to the world the two of you decide to….

Ok, I know what the title says, but actually you're working for me. I just demolished this... creature's home village, and I heard it swear vengeance against me. It's going on a quest to end me right now. It's not really a threat to me, but it's taking a nap and I wanna end it's miserable life in the most brutal way possible. Only problem is, I'm not creative. Any suggestions lads? I promise to make your waifu real if things succeed...

Rolled 42 (1d100)

There is currently much trouble afoot as you decide to board your own ship and discovered things are not as they appear. Plus lots of bots due to how heavily automated it is.

Currently your in the cold racks watching a fight between a funny little bot and army of drones led by a big bot boss. There you ponder on what you should do....and if you should use that strange artifact that was given to you.

Besides that you had to overhear a rant by the Ship's AI and got to see a bunch of adorable little bucket bots murder the shit out of each other before this mess came up.

Rolled 92 (1d100)

>>1497202
Which treats the resources brought in by the drones. Breaking them down into pure goodness and dumping the waste outside into space. Those now pure and processed materials are then stored away. This vastly increases the value of the hauls the ship can provide. You don't need to haul the raw resources to a processing center...

Now if that weren't valuable enough the ship's AI admits they can also cannibalize other ships...completely. Down to the last bolt and piece of scrap. Even organics can be processed. As the ship's manufacturing as been adapted to recycle human's waste and Abhr states technically those modifications also means it can directly process humans too. As its ability to process and recycle is a little too good. Aliens are included and most important Outsiders.

Turns out the ship was also meant to harvest rare and exotic materials. In case they were stumbled upon by chance in the field or were purposely sent to an area which possessed them.

Hence despite the popular belief of their simplified manufacturing hub being the most valuable and quite rare. That belief is false. Its actually the processing center that can devour just about anything and put out purified materials.

Thus in truth there is far more fact in those descriptions of a 'swarm of locusts surrounding a mothership and devouring all in its wake' then you had heard before. You thought it was a bit of exaggeration...but if what the Ship's AI claims is true. Its not.

The ship absolutely could devour an entire living world should it be given enough time and cargo space but with multiple of them? A single world is easy.

Alright, time to get to business. Can the Advanced AI handle taking the ship out to collect dark matter if we give it the Dark Matter Collector?

I'm hoping that once we're done trying to figure stuff out here, we can just send the ship on a harvesting run aided by Fisher tech. So first step is to figure out if we can actually do that.

While we're at it we can tell the AI about the other Fisher tech designed for ship use.

So the AI is distinctly about EFFICIENCY and THE COLLECTIVE GOOD.

Ahbr, meanwhile, stands directly opposed to stripping away individuality for the sake of the collective good.

The two viewpoints are difficult, but not impossible, to get in-sync. In the meantime I suspect we'll need to get them separated so they're not at each others throats and so we can gain trust/influence with each of them without causing chagrin by constant mediation.

I've got some ideas in that regard.

On another note, how would people feel about giving Ahbr the Cloak of Cancellation?

OH SHIT NIGGER(s) it's an adventure about killing vampires n shit.

4 vampire hunters is going to infiltrate a vampire castle to kill the head vampire there for casting a spell than kept the world at perpetual night time.
Each hunter needs at least 1 player to be the voices in their head to tell them what to do n shit.

Just name yourself something with the highlighted title under the hunter to identify which team you're going with. Example: Regular Hunter Faggot -> Controls Oswell the regular Hunter
Need at least 1 player for each dude
The more players each character has, the more rerolls that team gets.


Currently the party is snooping around the second floor, looking for vampires to kill.

A loud explosion, a booming sound.

The metallic floor plating shakes under your feet, metal creaking under immense stress. Bolts and rivets jut out of the walls' steel panelling, ricochetting in the small quarters, the pipes inside the walls bursting and jetting out a dense vapor-like gas. '''The transport you are in is under attack!''' Alarms blare alive, its sirens deafening. White fluorescent lights suddenly die out as they're shattered and wires cut loose from the ceiling, hanging and sparking. The auxiliary emergency lights come alive, a dim glowing red, set out in a guiding path before you.

'''You are a prisoner''', once held helpless in your cell. Now, for better of for worse, your once imprisoning cell lays broken before you, the energy wall detaining you and keeping you in is deactivated. This is your chance to escape. But to where?

The ship you are in is a prisoner transport, you know most of the escape pods are not near the prisoners' quarters but rather near the crew quarters' and the command deck. However, you also know very little about the ship's layout, and you have to make your way out of it quickly before the ship is shot down!

You have nothing on yourself but basic clothing: a yellow jumpsuit with the numbers '''"023-D"''' imprinted on both your back and front, and boxers underneath. You have no shoes and no socks. Fortunately, your hands are not bound, as you are in one of the low-security prisoners onboard.

'''What do you do?'''

Fist clash, and white hair dances as I try my best to keep up with Yoruchi's near impossible speed, hold my arms up as I feel the impact of her fists bruising my arms and making my bones shake with every single punch she throws. Byakuya is watching from the steps leading up to his manor, studying and occasionally glancing up to watch us. Though I'm not sure he's getting much entertainment since our friend the captain hasn't been much more than a blur since she decided to surprise me with a bit of training. The second I got back here after I had to do extra duties and work at the sixth division for....well disappearing for a day. Wasn't much and it wasn't hard, in fact I quite enjoyed what I had to do. Glad I'm still not so prideful as to see cleaning up as an insult, in fact I'd say cleaning up most of the barracks gave me some time to think and clear my head....its just been a day since I met my other self and I still have so many questions and to be honest worries.

The first most of which is not being beaten by my dear friend here until I look like I had ink smugged all over me.

"Having trouble, sensei?" Byakuya says, with a smirk that tells me he is just loving watching me deal with what he has to with every time I make him and Aya spar together "are you off practice? I was certain you'd be used to fighting opponents must faster than yourself by now, I mean....you always tell me I need to practice with it myself, with your often at time irritating little sister"

"Yes" I say, struggling to track where Yoruichi is going to hit as she continues her assault, the pain in my arms mixing with the wind blowing over me "But there is a very key difference between the two of them, for one Aya isn't a captain like our mutual friend Yoruichi here, and two"

"She plays like a little girl" Yoruichi says, smiling like she does when she's having a good time, which seems to be whenever she isn't serious with her duties and work "and well I don't"

"Yeah" I say through gritted teet, managing to catch her arm as she takes a swing at me, a slower one with more power and weight behind it that would probably break something inside me or just knock me unconscious "Like a cat"

I have to head out for awhile, so I was just going to leave my thoughts on how to approach Aya's question.

The following is the utilitarian take on things, and not what I would recommend telling Aya directly:

The fact is, and even Aya admits it, she made a mistake: a mistake with tragic consequences. That would tend to make almost anyone feel sorry for themselves, like maybe things would be better off without her, or some similarly distraught state of mind. Problem is, that is a fairly short-sighted and selfish state to be in given that Aya is a rare, valuable, and necessary talent in Soul Society.

By definition, all shinigami are rare talents since souls with spiritual power are in the minority--a fact that is skewed slightly by the fact that powerful souls "live" longer and rise to positions of greater prominence (not to mention the entire show focuses on them and not the boring, plain-old, weak, ordinary souls.)--so she is somewhat obligated to participate in the Gotei 13. The G13 serve a crucial role in the very cycle of life and death, and every loss they incur is relatively major since training and fielding a shinigami is not a simple task.

Aya is in a bad way right now, but she is still very much needed. She has been shaken up, but it is in everyone's interest to help her get back into form. If you are the last living pilot on an airplane, you don't really have the luxury of sitting back in coach and feeling sorry for yourself for whatever reason. Admittedly, that example is pretty far removed from these circumstances, but only in severity: the principle is the same.


As for the actual answer to her question:

The simplest answer is to put her duties first and to acknowledge her mistakes, accept her imperfections, and do her level best to learn from them and improve herself so they are less likely to happen in the future. Kimi does have experience as a soldier, they are used to the notion that people are depending on them. It is probably worth noting that while Aya is tired and depressed, while being a touching credit to her compassionate nature, will only make future tragedies more likely.

So long story short, we should teach her to channel her feelings constructively in a way that helps/motivates her towards her duties/betterment.
