So no kids game again, but as a bonus I did get to have the GURPS game. We got so freaked out by the fact that these things could hurt us that after much arguements, we started triangulation with only two points of linkage then moving and checking it without getting out of the ship. This brought about a small problem, the things had setup communications blimps with light ship weapons. That means one hit and we are dead, funny fear can make you do very creative things in game. Then one of the blimps started talking to us, which was even wierder, so weird after about 10 mintues we bailed for space. Three things we learnt from this communication, first they had co-opted human brains into their sentience, second they were unable to access the memories of the human's or they just don't care, they were using human's as CPU's.
So this brought about a new plan, the blimps had weapons on the bottom facing planet site, not aimed up at where we were. Thus hack form above, we flew over the top of one of the blimps, and lowered me down to hack the systems. First thing we learnt was that the systems actively counter hacked me, which is how we figured out they were using human's as CPU's for these things, we initially thought they were doing this over comms untill I jettisoned the pay load and cylinder and the light ship weapon drop out of the blimp.
After a second attempt at this on another blimp which shut it self down, because I disabled it's comms we started to get worried. On the third attemp on a another blimp we got it to jettison its system but this time it looked like it was learning about what we were doing. So we flew down to pick up the ship weapons as our ship had none. This is how we learnt that they cylinder had human brain tisue in it and was being used to control the bimps, and why I was being counter hacked by the blimp. Sentience was high but enough for us to communciate with the cylinder, this just made it worse for us.
At this point we went to hell with this, we know where the main robot colony is lets just blow it to hell. So plan was set up one of the scavenged drones with the newly aquired light ship laser and have it fire at the colony and draw out the bots while we set it up to explode. This is where it got worrisome because the attack went so well when we got into the colony nearly all the bots had gone, the whole conlony of bots had left while we were hitting thier blimps. We watched the last of te bots dismantle stuff and start out of the colony so we followed them. To a rocket, the bastards were going to leave! Worse they were set up for over a thousand brain units inside the rocket, the assult on the rocket showed us one thing they hadn't gotten into the rocket. So we blew that baby sky high and bugged out, these things/whatever they are were too dangerous to let off planet worse there was more than one thousand of them. At that point our pilot went to fuck this for a joke and we were space bound. Transmission turned up from HQ, leave the planet retun home for debrief. We left 1000+ bio computers, that saw everything as resources including humans behind, all I wanted to do was nuke the planet, but all we had was two light ship weapons which I was tasked with mounting on the ship while were tranported back home. Game end debrief to come, serouisly freaking scary.
