*sigh*

Ok. Well, since the governments seem to be dealin well enough with the coup attempts, it’s time to see if I can help stop the end of the world.

Try to summon a truly massive amount of uncharged mana batteries on the location in Egypt where all the Eldritch shit is going down, and make sure they’re set up in such a way that they can start absorbing the energy in the area into themselves but not let it out.
After all, Eldritch magic is still magic.

Is your role just to +1 whatever Glass says.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.

Dare I ask how you (inadvertently at that) created the psychic equivalent of a false vacuum event?

"Well, looks like the worlds ending better stay in the fort and hold out."
Teach the deer about survival, have the deer help me dig a well, set up some spikes at the bottoms of the walls, and build some houses in the walled area.

”enough of this, you are going back from whence you came, even if i have to drag you there physically!”
use all of my psychic power to make the dark pharoh go back through the portal! siphon his magical energy, use mental and telekinetic methods, hell, try to pull him through with my bare hands if i have to! just don’t let him stay in our world one minute more!

I figure at some point, you're just gonna run outta fucks to give and just off yourself whenever you get hurt at all. It's not like there's any downsides to it. Hangover? Suicide will fix that. Stubbed your toe? Suicide. Headache? Suicide. Papercut? Suicide.

"Well, looks like the worlds ending better stay in the fort and hold out."
Teach the deer about survival, have the deer help me dig a well, set up some spikes at the bottoms of the walls, and build some houses in the walled area.

[1d6 = 2] The deer consider themselves quite knowledgeable about survival, being wild animals. Although it’s likely true that you still have a unique perspective on the subject, they aren’t interested in it.

[1d6 +1(deer) = 2+1 = 3] After digging for a bit, you come across a small underground river. Nothing substantial, though.

[1d6 = 5] You set up quite a few spikes along the bottom of the walls.

[1d6 = 6] They are most certainly houses… but they’re clearly designed for deer, and are rather uncomfortable for people. Perhaps that’s a blessing in disguise, though. You already have the… RV thing.

ROLL INTRODUCTION.

In this turn: Stuff happens.

This is the final turn mentioned previously. You may now start asking me questions: Whether in this thread or on Discord.
https://discord.gg/UmMhHzg

CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

You absolute penis.
turn the prototype teleporter into a black hole device and activate it.


[1d6 = 2] Having few tools accessible at the moment, your frantic fumbling with the teleporter accomplishes nothing.

SWAT officers and FBI agents disembark from the vans, some of them in purple uniforms. Several of them start sprinting to your vehicle, drawing weapons as they do so.

[1d6 = 6]

One of the purple-uniformed FBI agents makes a pulling motion, and the teleporter flies out of your hands and through the windshield, shattering it. It continues towards him, and he catches it and sets it down on the ground.

(1d6 +2(weapons)+1(numbers) +2(training) +1(psychic assistance) =2+2+1+2+1 = 8) vs (1d6 = 1)
A SWAT officer leaps onto the hood of your car and tazes you point-blank. Another officer smashes through the driver-side window with a baton, unlocks and opens the door, and hauls you out. Your hands are quickly cuffed behind your back, and you slip into unconsciousness as a purple figure moves towards you.

FADE TO BLACK. CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

*sigh*

Ok. Well, since the governments seem to be dealin well enough with the coup attempts, it’s time to see if I can help stop the end of the world.

Try to summon a truly massive amount of uncharged mana batteries on the location in Egypt where all the Eldritch shit is going down, and make sure they’re set up in such a way that they can start absorbing the energy in the area into themselves but not let it out.
After all, Eldritch magic is still magic.


[1d6+skill bonus +skill bonus(Raburn’s assistance) = 5 skill level 1] The pentacle is quickly assembled and activated. Nothing to do now but wait to know what happens…

Wait. Your phone is ringing. It’s Bastet.
Code: [Select]
The Egypt situation is ongoing, but I have a plan to deal with the coup attempts. A sort of… semi-perpetual procedure. A doctrine…

FADE TO BLACK. CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

Get in the van
"So, is there a plan or are you so dedicated to headhunting scientists?"

A man in a suit is sitting across from you.
“Of course we have a plan. With your expertise, N.A.T.R. will win the Second Space Race before it even begins. From there, quelling the revolutions will be simple, as will restoring order in the affected countries. Strategic Director “Spearhead” will brief you on the details. Details about them are classified, so don’t be surprised to hear a distorted, mechanical voice.”
He hands you a smartphone, and you take it.
Code: [Select]
Bernarnd Bonson. Allow me to explain the Bastion Doctrine to you…
Wait. You recognize that voice.

FADE TO BLACK. CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

"I don't Know mysterious voice but I will"

Professor Oak will try to replicate the Physic false vacuum event.
Professor Elm will make so the metapod can evolve into butterfree.
Professor Birch will try to create an Axew


Professor Oak’s equipment spontaneously self-destructs. It seems that you have metaphorically struck a nerve of the voice.
Code: [Select]
WHY WOULD YOU TRY TO DO THAT

[1d6+skill bonus = 1+1 = 2] Professor Elm fails to do so.

[1d6+skill bonus = 6-1 = 5] Professor Birch successfully creates an Axew.

Code: [Select]
Despite your best attempt at ending the world, Samuel Oak, the Bastion Doctrine is about to take effect, which means I won’t have to micromanage you.

What does that mean?

FADE TO BLACK. CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

TricMagic’s turn (action submitted through PM):
Quote
Eh, build the full portal and head for the moon.

[1d6+1 +skill bonus(machine) +skill bonus(nanoforge) = 1+1+1+1 = 4] You assemble a human-sized portal as the parts are created by the nanoforge, but you then realize that you don’t have a spacesuit… yet. Having the nanoforge make one wouldn’t be too hard.

A disembodied voice speaks up.
Code: [Select]
Dr. Anamolate, as per the Bastion Doctrine, you and your creations are now under review for any existential threats to humanity…

FADE TO BLACK. CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

My liege

Spoiler: secret action (click to show/hide)

Hmm… yes. Though I am loath to trust your advice, it is true that the gains are too good to pass up. I had hoped that my other servant in this era would be able to sway people to my side, but it was a secondary objective and time did not permit it. He will guard my physical form in the short amount of time this will take. It is best, I think, to fully transform you into the appropriate form, instead of a mere projection...

Suddenly, you find yourself in… “cyberspace” is perhaps the best word for it. The Internet appears as a vast web of hyperlinks and information, and you are approaching a site with many connections to the rest of the web. You glance to the side and slightly behind you, and you see the Dark Vizier alongside you.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE.

”enough of this, you are going back from whence you came, even if i have to drag you there physically!”
use all of my psychic power to make the dark pharoh go back through the portal! siphon his magical energy, use mental and telekinetic methods, hell, try to pull him through with my bare hands if i have to! just don’t let him stay in our world one minute more!

The Dark Vizier shifts slightly, and the portal closes. There goes your plan.

But… wait. He’s doing something… he’s trying to hack the Internet! Well, looks like he’s going to get a technopathic surprise. You transfer your consciousness to cyberspace, searching for him… and you find him, along with the warlock. The warlock points at you, and the Dark Vizier turns its head slightly.

(In the physical world, the robots relax slightly. They must have a plan. In addition, dozens of strange objects appear and begin to siphon the Dark Vizier’s strength.)

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: JOHN WEST’S POV.

At last, you are backed up by the full force of the Mighty Messenger! Now it is time to see what happens when it is his turn to lose.
He takes a protective stance in front of the website you are approaching.
You are five seconds away… three seconds away… one second away- a featureless grey sphere forms around you and the Dark Vizier, trapping you inside. The Dark Vizier performs a gesture that is the equivalent of splaying one’s fingers, with the key difference that seeing it can drive a human insane.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: DR. ADDERSON’S POV.

You have been gathering your energy, and as you are about to unleash it, the warlock and Dark Vizier are hidden from your view by a metallic wall.
You hear Bastet’s voice.
Code: [Select]
Trust me, meatspace is going to be a much more entertaining view than bitspace.

You blink, and your eyes open in the physical world, just in time to see and hear the pyramid explode. Only two things remain recognizable: An enormous circular opening into an underground chamber, and a massive lid of the same size, covered with runes. And then the opening sinks into the sands, hiding the chamber from view.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: JOHN WEST’S POV.

The Dark Vizier performs a gesture that is the equivalent of blinking, with the key difference that seeing it can drive a human insane. He is clearly surprised.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: DR. ADDERSON’S POV.

The shimmering sphere collapses inward and vanishes, whatever was creating it apparently destroyed.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: JOHN WEST’S POV.

The Dark Vizier growls in a low tone of voice. Suddenly, an image of two closed eyes appear on the inside of the sphere, directly in front of the Dark Vizier. They blink open…

Code: [Select]
0000100 4 “EOT” “End of transmission”

...and the Dark Vizier vanishes from cyberspace.

The eyes close and shift their position to directly in front of you. They blink open…

Code: [Select]
0001000 8 “BS” “Backspace”

...and you know no more.

CUT TO NEXT SCENE: DR. ADDERSON’S POV.

The Dark Vizier jerks abruptly, as if violently removed from cyberspace. Only now does he notice the devices that have been sapping his power. He moves to destroy them, as if in slow motion...

And then… a massive jar-like structure of solid stone, lined with runes, erupts from the ground around the Dark Vizier, too quickly for his weakened form to react. The lid of the underground chamber teleports onto the open top of the jar, forming a perfect fit and sealing away Nyarlathotep.

All of the robots but one have vanished. The remaining one steps towards you.
Code: [Select]
The Bastion Doctrine is now in full effect. Allow me to explain what that means…

It didn't looked that dangerous.

It was only not-dangerous because the mysterious voice stopped it before it could get dangerous.

Probably not. I write robots shooting wizards, not slice-of-life in near-future soft science fiction.
