Gods of the Cataclysm (Challenge Thread)
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:44:37 AM »
On the wall is duct-taped a note, handwritten in thick, black marker on homemade paper. It reads:

Pantheon Meeting Wednesday 4/28

You Know Where

Gods Only

Mortals Will Be Shot; Then Sent Off With A Stern Warning

Zombies Will Just Be Shot



I've got myself a god character now, and I'm running out of things to do. I looked at the wonderful J-9 thread, but I have my own ideas. This is a place to both submit challenges and accept them. But this topic is named Gods of the Cataclysm for a reason. If you can complete five challenges and pass two milestones, you may choose a sphere of influence and be inducted into the Pantheon of the Apocalypse.

I hate myself when I found threads like this... I mean, I can barely survive two days without getting killed, I feel like I am losing a lot of things... For example, I never, NEVER have been able to work in a "gigantic level 32 fortress-ish 250-mph-per-hour" car...
I can make nice visuals, I think; http://rogueesp.deviantart.com/.

Already beat the J-9 with a past catman save (feline threshold) and did the shoggoth and hulk one, don't know if it was fair since i used boxing (cross counter may need nerf as I can one shot dudes unarmed) and had saber tooth , claws and the fingertip razors aug.
In my opinion the hardest would be the car one because I admit not having the b*lls to doing it (or thinking of doing such thing). I think it's possible with reinforced heavy power armour though. I also automatically lost because I refuse to cut off my arm to get the cannon CBM, and if I end up doing it, it would be the LAST thing to do here.
Personal massagers are the best weapons.

Not much of a ninja if we can hear him smiling.  KA101 cancels casting Detect Ninja: ninja detected

Hulks are due for an Upgrade shortly, so I'm gonna suggest killing one unarmed and naked may be way more dangerous than you'd expect.  (The Upgrade is designed to let them do damage through heavy power armor.)

The J-9.

Done multiple times. It's sort of become an acid-test for how tough your character has become. Even better when you can do it unarmed:



Kill a shoggoth unarmed.

I don't think I've ever killed one any other way so far.

The radio said “No, Rivet. You are the demons”
And then Rivet was a zombie.

Killing a hulk unarmed should be pretty much trivial.
I once put my debug char with 20 starting dex, high on meth, with a pointy stick, 1 skill in melee and no armor against a hulk. I though he'd die, but he managed to kill the hulk, break the stick and only get hit once. At ~5 unarmed, fists are better than pointy sticks - especially broken pointy sticks.

For the hulk challenge to make sense, it should be more like:
Kill a hulk unarmed, naked, without using advantageous terrain (pits are insta-win), with 0 fighting skills and with no stat at more than 10 before buffs.

Unfortunately, nobody is going to have 0 melee by the time they are doing the challenges on this thread. Maybe if they hack it back to 0, then restore it afterwards.

Grinding isn't much of a challenge. If you lucked out at bionics and got memory banks and metabolic, you could literally just spend days punching fungaloids to get all the skills needed to beat any sane number of hulks while unarmed, naked and sober.

As far as I recall, you can turn off skill leveling. Turning off melee, dodging and unarmed at the start of the game would allow to make this challenge challenging instead of grindy.

Next time, make a backup before attempting a challenge. If you die, you can restore it, and it's not against the rules.

Alright, J-9, using diamond katana, Close Quarters Battle, Hydraulic Muscles, and my own strength.
Aftermath:





And my survivor suit is slightly damaged. Bring on some more challenges!

J-9 with shoggoths. Then, if you dare, 'Nether' challenge: 1000 shoggoths plus covering entire terrain in mine's gas/smoke vents.

Somebody needs to survive a mininuke exploding in their hands. I haven't tried that since they got a much deserved buff.
