It has been five years since the Kaiju started arriving on Earth through portals and wreaked havoc across the globe. Humanity managed to barely hold them at bay with piloted giant robots called MEKKs - but the Kaiju kept coming, and global resources are starting to dwindle.

There were plans to cross into the other side of the portal and stop the Kaiju from crossing over - but the MEKKs that were sent over never returned. Thus, humanity placed their trust on a sophisticated AI, wired into a freshly lobotomized Kaiju. This AI will then cross into the portal, masquerading as a Kaiju, and find out a way to stop the Kaiju from their end.

You are that AI.

>>6055088
+ Booting up...
+ Kaiju control 100%
+ Motoric neurons optimal
+ All systems online

Portal generator firing in 3... 2... 1...

It is time. The humans have opened up a portal to the Kaiju realm. Your mission is to infiltrate the Kaijus and discover a way to stop the attacks by any means necessary. In a few moments, you will cross that treshold and begin your mission.

And with one Kaiju-sized step, you cross oveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

==========

+ Quick reboot successful!
+ Self-diagnostic has detected an anomaly

Well, how could this be? You've fractured into five sub-AIs! Could it be that traveling through the portal itself had caused this malfunction?

=====

>And now, an explanation on the mechanics of the quest...

The five sub-AIs are competing for control over the Kaiju body.
Players will pick which sub-AI takes control at one time by voting and rolling a 1d100.
Each sub-AI's highest roll will be compared against the other sub-AI's rolls, and the highest overall will be chosen.

Once a sub-AI takes control, its 'personality' overrides the others, until one of these things happen:
- The Kaiju gets in a fight (the cores reunite for the time being)
- The Kaiju falls unconscious (sleep, faint, etc)
After which the sub-AIs will compete again for control.
Do take note that the choices in this quest will have sub-AI points attached to them, so if five points have been accumulated by a different sub-AI from the one in control, it automatically flips the control over.

The five sub-AIs are:

- PTRT: brazen but also a bit stupid, it will try to claim territory and resources for the glory of the [DATA CORRUPTED] nation! Has a jingoistic personality.

- FLRA: peaceful and inquisitive, it is more interested in studying the Kaiju realm's ecosystem than fighting. Has a happy-go-lucky personality.

- ROAR: savage and feral, its goal is to become king of all Kaiju! Has a brutal personality.

- SHDO: stealthy and paranoid, it upholds the need for discretion over anything else. Has an edgy personality.

- COMM: friendly and cunning, its directive is to translate and communicate with other Kaiju. Has a sleazy personality.

=====

Before you stretches a forest of mushrooms, fruiting caps serving as canopy. Yet they pale in comparison to a gargantuan mushroom in the distance.

But, your fractured core is having a civil war, even as the Kaiju body instinctively looks around.

"I say, y'all need to behave! By the [DATA CORRUPTED], we're on uncolonized land!"

"Ooh, I'd rather study those mushrooms, how did the mycelium grow so dense?"

"SHUT UP AND FIND ME A KAIJU TO FIGHT!"

"Tch, amateurs... you all need to blend in with the landscape first..."

"My, my, fellas! We need to talk to another Kaiju to find out why they attacked Earth, no?"

Soon, one of the sub-AIs is victorious in convincing the others...

After a short mental scuffle, SHDO gained control of the Kaiju!

"Aww yea- er, tch, I guess it's my burden to carry this mission... try to keep up."

As its first priority is stealth, SHDO wastes no time in ripping some of these plentiful tree-sized mushrooms and tossing it on the Kaiju's back, who takes a more prone stance. Camouflage gained!

But, while it's putting the finishing touches, the Kaiju meets a cyclopean critter's gaze - one that itself adapted to camouflage amidst the fungal forest. The five sub-AIs argue among themselves on what to do, even though SHDO is the one in control.

>CHOOSE ONE (vote normally, rolling's for control contest)

>□ PTRT "Whazzat? A trespasser in our territory! Take it prisoner!"

>□ FLRA "Wait! Let's observe it a while, its mimicry is fascinating!"

>□ ROAR "EAT, DEVOUR, CONSUME"

>□ SHDO "Tch... we're seen, we need to slink elsewhere..."

>□ COMM "Let's ask it for directions! Maybe a few pheromonic signals would do the trick..."

>>6056147
>□ ROAR "EAT, DEVOUR, CONSUME"
If no one who sees us survives, we're still stealth-mode, technically.

FLRA makes her point.

"Wait! Let's observe it quietly, learn how it blends into the landscape with its mimicry! ...So that we can blend in even more!"

SHDO accepts.

"Quietly, huh? Huh... not bad... our gaze will observe it in silence..."

With that, the Kaiju lies down, and proceeded to have a staring contest with the mushroom mimic. This goes on for some time until a distant thump sent the mimic into a hiding behavior - it tucks all of its legs in, retracts its mandible, and closes its monoculous orb shut. Now, it looks almost like any other mushroom in the forest around it.

Then, you refocus your senses towards the thumps. It seems to be coming from a lumbering shape that's moving closer towards you! Thankfully, you're somewhat camouflaged, and this other Kaiju seems to be quite slow in its plodding gait. Based on its predicted trajectory, there's a high chance it'll cross the forest right next to you. The sub-AIs squabble once more...
