« on: September 16, 2019, 10:28:05 pm »

Ah science, it has been your friend for as long as you can remember. Your friend helped you with an idea you had. It took a while to see your idea come to life. How long did it take?
1) 1 day (itís already possible, just not even close to how you wanted)
2) 1 months(your friend hates you, what happened is the opposite of what you wanted)
3) 3 months(only part of your idea works)
4) 6 month(it works, hopefully)
5) 1 long year(everything works as intended)
6) 5 really long years(you made sure it works and then some)

What was your idea?
A)generic cloning
B)super clones
C)fission cloning
D)not cloning, anything but cloning(write in, something sciency from fiction or the future)

Oh ya and what is your name?

What is this: An RTD about being a crazy scientist.
The Rolls: Sciency:
  1) itís already possible, just not even close to how you wanted
  2) your friend hates you, what happened is the opposite of what you wanted
  3) only part of your idea works
  4) it works, hopefully
  5) everything works as intended
  6) you made sure it works and then some
 Other:
  1) it broke in a horrific way
  2) it just breaks
  3) it does not break, it also does not happen
  4) it kind of happens
  5) it perfectly happens
  6) it perfectly happens, it also breaks
How many players: 10 max, 2 min
Update schedule: Ya that never has worked. Just hope it does not end.
Is there an ending: No more scientists, 1 month without an update(unless I mention a hiatus), or 1st scientist with 10 patents
How do I get patents and what are they: Sell an invention or steal one from another player, for this game they are just victory points and nothing else
 How do I steal one: Do you want me to tell you everything?
  Yes: Figure that one out on your own.
Where are we: Does Earth sound good?
 What if I say no: Too bad.
When are we: 2050
 Why: Because I said so.
Will there be a sequel: Ask me when this ends.
 Is this a sequel to something: I donít know, at most itís a spiritual successor to Scientist Roll to Dodge
What about . . .: You know what any more question can come from actual people.
 But I am a person: . . . You are me
  What: Enough.

Any questions?

The Morphing Cube 2.0
After the war with the Yeerks, Fiona learned about the technology the ĎAndalite banditsí used. Sa cube that gave people the power to morph into any animal they touch. This lasts for two hours. Fiona managed to convince the Andalites to let her try to improve it. Her improvements allowed her to create Morphing Cube 2.0, which is like the original except that it is possible to be in morph for an entire day without getting trapped as your morph, as opposed to the 2 hour limit of the original
(Have you read Animorphs? Would this be allowed?)

Name: Dr Adderson
Idea: Psionic powers, and how to access them.
Timeframe: 5 years, 3 spent doing rigorous testing on both humans and animals to determine itís existence, and the other two developing various prototype methods for accessing it.

The idea of psychic power has been around and well known, but very few attempts have been made to harness it with the rise of cybernetics and genetic engineering. as such, the power of the mind is almost entirely unexplored and most of the potential applications have yet to be discovered.

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.

You all are going for the very easy time frame option and no cloning. :(

Ehh, I'm not a fan of psionics, tho I will allow it(I swear if you go for the magic route).

the only reason magic happened in the last game that Dr.Adderson was involved in was because some crazy archaeologist turned warlock forced him to learn some, after others decided to use that as their research. i much prefer to go the ďX-ComĒ route with psionics. Telekinesis, mind control, and similar are what I prefer to go for.

  Genetic Engineering
Science has shown you how to modify genes and you can do it perfectly. Anything revolving genetic manipulation gets a re-roll. Your current lab has a gene-splicer and a centrifuge.

Science has been kind to you and allowed you to make your Morphing Cube 2.0. Every time you use the Morphing Cube 2.0 you get a reroll. Your current lab has a Morphing Cube and the Morphing Cube 2.0.

Science gas gifted you psychic powers. Anything revolving psychics gets a re-roll. Your current lab has a brain in a jar and a metal helmet.

How do you all proceed?

Fiona touches the Morphing Cube 2.0 to gain the power to morph. She then searches for an animal to morph into

Name: Malady Maleficarum

How long did it take?
 5) 1 year. My brilliance may be boundless but I do not tolerate mistakes.

What was your idea?
Gelatinous Organized Omnimorphic Polymatter. Also known as Grey GOOP. A form of metal that can actively recycle other matter for its own base elements to grow itself, and replicate any material down to the molecular level(user knowledge permitting)
