Now that Deathcube is gone for good (it should be, artifacts shouldn't be indestructible), can we the user manual?

Oh I'm getting the fuck out of the universe at the soonest opportunity I have, I've laboured too much to risk it all to benefit other people.

Heh, sucks for you guys. I'm already out and comfy in my new (sound-safe) home. So long that the people whom made the death-star don't come back any time soon, I should be nice, safe, and happy here.

Wait, if the Doctor got eaten by Lurker Two (or is that Lurker Three at this point?), can the infestation jump much like it did with Origin tech, making each and every ARM operative a potential source of Lurker outburst?

I would like to know this as well.

We know that:
a) the Lurker occupies all of space in some degree.
b) the Lurker uses people as his conduits into a more concrete occupancy of this universe.
c) the Doctor is intimately linked to all ARM operatives, alongside a significant population of humanity.
d) the Lurker has influenced Origin tech in some way, such that all operations of said tech are unreliable and liable to spawn Lurker batches
e) said tech infestation is null (or as close as we can tell) in Orgyverse.

Seems reasonable that the Lurker would use its new toy to increase its effect on other humans, much as it used origin to spray itself all over the face of the UWM and ARM a while back.

Those in other universes would likely suffer little or no effects of this due to whatever mechanic separates origin tech from its influence elsewhere.

So...
Can I use my powers to summon the Deathcube, and then use the deathcube to solve both lurkers forever? I'm pretty sure that's a thing I could do.
No.

Where is the fun in that?

Now that Deathcube is gone for good (it should be, artifacts shouldn't be indestructible), can we the user manual?
Only if people agree not to try and go get it.

Probably not. The Doc's stuff isn't origin tech. If it was gonna do it, then you'd all probably be dead by now.

I mean, if you want everyone who is in this universe to die right now, and to render all you guys in other universes eternally trapped, thats fine by me. But the game would be over pretty dang quick.

I mean, if that's the logical thing to happen due to the Doc's experiments and the Lurker's use of him ...
My character is in one of those other universes so He'd survive for a little while anyway. and i believe there are EUEs outside of the home universe now too.

it's been what? Ten months since the Lurker invaded originally, and you predicted about a year's worth of game left. So we're getting close either way.
But, I am not opposed to continuing either. Though My character is mostly just killing time at this point.

If I may be so bold and voice a negative here, seeing the work of months undone and having your mission stakes reduced to 'useless, probably' about 5 turns in because some bloke pressed three random buttons isn't all sunshine and rainbows either.

Incidentally, it also gives rather heavy incentives for keeping even tighter IC leashes and ever increasing lists of precautions, two things most people agree are the worst thing since unsliced bread.

I'd like to say 'pls no' on the whole subject of the Lurker Doctor-jumping, for purely selfish reasons of I would die before completing my mission and I really don't want that.

I really did think that just testing the targeting functions without testing new commands wouldn't be an issue.  Oh well.  Anyway, Factoryverse wouldn't agree to more restrictions similar to the shock implants.  You'd have to invade first (which would probably be pretty easy to do).

Well, the thing about it is that if he gets the box then he presses 3 buttons again, and the game ends because the big bad guy is dead.
