It's not the end of the world

anonymous asked:

Speaking of SCP-049 i have a headcannon that there is some kind of real but anomalous disease it can sense in people and its cure does rid them of it. The end result while horrible, is better than letting the anomalous disease manifest.

The disease isn’t that bad, to the people who have it. Sure, it’s terminal, but so chronic and widespread that people have normalized it. We the Foundation protect people from the truth of how the world really is, after all.


Theme Bestiary: Tyrant Jelly

CR 9/MR 3

Neutral Large Ooze

Pathfinder Bestiary 4, pg. 266

When an Ochre Jelly finds its way into a colony of magical bees or wasps and manages to absorb the brooding egg of a queen, a peculiar reaction sometimes occurs. The larval insect hijacks the ooze, becoming something akin to a brain inside the protoplasm and gaining control of the slime’s bulk, steering the slime to its own, buggy ends.

Tyrant Jellies are not content with mere bees or wasps as servants, no–their Vermin Empathy ability allow them to build up a rapport with any insect that possesses an exoskeleton, forming an army of spiders, ants, centipedes, and other crawling, squirming, flying creatures. They send their new armies out into the world to bring the Tyrant back some delicious, delicious food (everything) to feed its new unnatural hunger.

While their spell-like abilities–Dominate Monster, Charm Monster, and Hold Monster, each usable 3 times a day–would make them terrifying and formidable foes, the saving grace is that their abilities only affect vermin (which they can do because of the Control Vermin ability), severely limiting the usefulness against larger, more humanoid enemies. Say the Wizard or the Witch possesses a vermin familiar, though… Especially devastating for the Witch, since they rely on their familiars to regain their spells. A Druid with a gigantic insect Animal Companion can also find the strength of their ally being turned against the party. EDIT: WHOOPS! Turns out, Familiars all get buffed into Magical Beasts, not vermin! Poor, poor Tyrant, one of its biggest ‘mess with the party’ abilities torn from it just like that… At least it can still steal any vermin summoned against it.

Though the armies of the Tyrant are not the only danger. Tyrant Jellies are plenty capable of taking care of themselves, retaining all the strengths of the Ochre Jelly with none of the slime’s weaknesses (aside from its pathetic 5ft reach). The slam attack is now a staggering 6d6+6 damage, plus 1d6 acid, with the threat of being grappled and constricted ever present. What’s more is that the protoplasm of the Tyrant courses with a strange mixture of insect fluids, causing a Constitution-damaging poison to surge across its outer surface. Anyone damaged by the Tyrant’s slam or constrict is exposed to this poison, potentially taking 1d4 Con damage each round for 4 rounds… And, cheekily enough, it requires three successful saves to stave off the poison, so that’s at minimum 3d4 Con damage. Hope you brought some poison resistance.

In addition to offense, though, the Tyrant possesses all the defensive qualities of its parent ooze, as well. The Ochre Jelly’s immunity to slashing, piercing, and electrical damage carries into the Tyrant, and exposing a Tyrant Jelly to any such damage form while it’s above 30 HP causes a completely new Ochre Jelly to split off of the main mass! What’s more, both the Tyrant and any Ochre Jelly spawned from this ability possess Fast Healing 5, and the Tyrant can take a full-round action to absorb any Ochre Jelly adjacent to it to add the Jelly’s HP to its own, possibly undoing any damage the party has done thus far.

And, remember, that the Tyrant Jelly never operates alone. A party combating one will also have to fight off whatever hive it has taken command of, as well as any insectoid allies it may have coerced or Dominated into its service. While it possesses only 5 Intelligence, that’s still enough for it to know “send in the minions first” is a good idea.

Relax, its my opinion XD. I still think that Mutsuki must dies in the end, maybe committing suicide for a good cause, who knows...

You’re definitely entitled to your opinion. I’ve just seen a lot of ableist stuff floating around about Mutsuki, so that wasn’t entirely directed at you to be clear!

But TG’s a very anti-suicide manga, and anti-martyrdom as well. I’ll bluntly state that Mutsuki has to survive or at least want and try to survive after being redeemed for the manga to work on a thematic level. If the new world ghouls and humans create cannot offer hope to characters who have been so exploited by the old world like Mutsuki, what is even the point of creating a new world? If characters whose lives have been tragedies due to no fault of their own have to die for a new world to exist, well, I think TG has already shown us how creating a world or a throne built on corpses of the weak/inconvenient goes: it creates a monster that will eat your world and everything you’ve worked for.

ok y’all im spamming with this net neutrality shit and im not even sorry for it
i do not care whether you live in america or not just PLEASE reblog what information you find (that works for KEEPING it)
