>(You) are an Administrator working at [THE COMPANY]. You've been employment for quite a while now, and you've managed to grow your [FACILITY] to a decent size! Today is Monday of your second work week, though it feels like its been ages since you first stepped into your office.

Your Facility is in a pretty great state right now. The Wendigo you have in containment is under control, you've just upped morale with a set of new bunks, and you're about to begin your research on the new arrival. The 'Golden Goose'.

Threat levels:

Safe: Easy containment: Basic cell, may self-contain.
Alpha: Hard containment: Specialized cell, some specialized things to use.
Gamma: Extreme containment: Requires costly handling and security procedures.
Omega: Almost Impossible to contain: Teleporters, ignores walls, requires resources equivalent to a room built each month to contain.

Lamb: No threat (Balls that multiply when sung to, sheep with addictive meat)
Wolf: Threat, low (Immortal constantly pissed-off doberman, person that can cloak)
Tiger: Threat high (Our Pissbaby)
Apex: Extreme: (Dragons, Self-replicating cake that doubles every 5 minutes)

The staff are happy today. A good night's rest does wonders for morale. And first thing in the morning, the guards get their weapons! They're all happy about the equipment they've requested, and quickly equip themselves. Jeremy is feeling way better today as well.

[Jeremy has recovered!]

And your new monster is here. Oh god, what the hell...? It looks like a gigantic avian, with a reflective sheen to it. The glint of it interferes with the camera sometimes, when the light catches it just right. It's slobbering onto the floor with its toothed tongue. Horrid growths are present across its face, kinda like a Muscovy Duck. One leg seems to be missing, yet it's putting all its weight on the exposed bone without a care in the world.

Okay, we have no idea how it reacts to any current stimulus right now, and we should only have a designation when we know how it acts more.

I proposed sending of the expendables down there to attempt to talk to the creature. To see if it's able to talk and to see if it's sapient, ala our pissbaby, or if it's just a wild beast. Also to determine how it reacts to a human.
>>
>>4926105
Smart first step. Let's look up any documents the company has on this weirdo, too.
>>
>>4926150

Unlike The Hungry, this one does come with some basic info! They've determined that nothing is cognitohazardous about it. Some parts are censored to preserve privacy in their operations, but it comes with everything they've learned on it.

> [Entity] was captured in [REDACTED] -signs of neglect present. Has proven to possess an unpleasant disposition, but isn't immediately hostile unless enraged. The subject has a high body temperature, enough to be hazardous when direct contact is made. Typically over 100 degrees Celsius.

> The creature possesses disproportionate physical strength for an animal of its size. No DNA tests have been done, as it was deemed unsafe to conduct such experiments while entity was in transit. Sampling can only be done through exposed membranes, as the body of the creature is too solid to be pierced by surgical equipment.

> While in transit, the entity produced an egg, which has been kept in deep storage and is under observation at outpost [REDACTED]

That is literally the boiling point of water. Do we have any ways to engage conversation with it without throwing someone that's probably a sauna at this point?
>>
>>4926172

shit, sorry.
>>
>>4926172
Maybe it's hot. We should try to pour it a bath. We do have a huge-ass kettle lying around right? Fill with water and see if our KFC Hot Wings Failed Experiment hops in.
>>
>>4926168
We should also try to see what it eats, or whether or not it has to eat. If it doesn't respond to the normal stuff, trying throwing in some wood or metal.
>>
>>4926371
So, we should toss in a lump of...what do weird duck things eat again? Probably just safe to toss in some greens or something for it to eat. Also I'm 99% certain from the last thread, Facility said that this thing needs to eat.
>>
>>4926375
Standard poultry feed then for a try, pressed onions garbage and animal powder.

Good enough of a name as any for the time being, if you want to just do a name. Let's L2-NA - The Golden Goose. Since we don't know enough to give a solid threat rating just yet.
>>
>>4926431
actually i am now unsure if its a swan or a duck?
>>
>>4926433
Looks more duck than goose but I think it's just some fucked up abomination. Golden Goose sounds better than Golden Duck. Rolls off the tongue better.
>>
>>4926435
The goose is loose! Actually we should remain cautious with this thing, bad temper+very strong+impenetrable skin sounds dangerous enough for me. We have no info how it was caught, right?
>>
>>4926507
Impenetrable to surgical equipment.

And give it food then fuck with the thermostat to see what it likes. Then see if it drops any pieces of itself. Then collect poop and get DNA from there as well as look at prior meals.
>>
>>4926507
>impenetrable skin
from surgical equipment. Nothing about it being resistant to bullets. Pretty sure it just means shit like blades can't cut into it.

All we know is that 1.) signs of neglect are present, which means that if we take care of it properly, it might warm up to us. It also says it's not immediately hostile unlike the pissbaby.

I still want to see how sapient and intelligent it is through attempting to talk to it, though. The thing also can't be super hard to contain and keep track of since I think the boys themselves said it doesn't need an overly specialised containment cell. So probably Safe to Alpha at most.

Welcome back! I haven't been active here since kettleposting (proud as a peacock that it worked out so well, i'll say), but i read through the archives and i've something i really want to try.

First order of the day; Helhounds!

Our autistic wendigo has some special meat on its bones. Meat that makes animals into pseudo-immortal murderbeasts. Now, i do wonder whether said murderbeasts, if transformed from a disciplined enough base, wouldn't be very useful as militairy or security assets.
Naturally, i'm talking about dogs. Faster, stronger, regenerating dogs which won't die unless the enemy figures out the copper weakness. I imagine that we could sell them at a massive premium compared to our other products, considering their versatility and power.
Now, before we can make ourselves any quadrupedal ice-horrors, we will need to know a few more things about wendy-meats' effects on animals.
First order of the day: Can iced animals infect healthy animals or humans? For this experiment we will need three animals and two (sub)humans. One animal will be given wendigo infected meat, and then put in a secure cage. When it has turned, we will insert the limb of one human and one animal into the cage for it to bite. We will then observe if either of them begin to show any symptoms of turning. When this experiment is completed, we will have the original infected animal shot, and have the remaining animal and human consume some of its remains. We will then observe them for signs of turning, same as the previous duo. If it is determined that secondary infection from animals who have ingested wendigo meat is impossible, we can then move onto phase two, which is the infection of a highly disciplined militairy or police dog. We will need to see if previous training can overpower the increased agression and predatory instinct that the wendigo infection induces, to the point where the infected animal is not a danger to its handlers or surroundings. If this proves to not be the case, phase three will begin.
Phase three describes attempts to disable parts of the infected creatures brains or neural pathways in order to counteract the hormones produced by their infected bodies. Considering their regeneration, it might be possible to disable most of the receptors that correspond to the increased signal substances causing the mental change, either by surgery (along with a copper implant grafted to the inside of the skull to prevent regeneration), or genetic engineering. Phase three might be a bit costly in resources, so we should consider putting it on the backburner if phase two fails.

>For this experiment we will need three animals and two (sub)humans. One animal will be given wendigo infected meat, and then put in a secure cage. When it has turned, we will insert the limb of one human and one animal into the cage for it to bite.
I'm pretty sure we could just do animals. The infection consumes all meat, no matter what, so I doubt it matters if it's human or not. Using humans willy nilly is kinda a stupid thing to do. There's a reason they try new hair products on bunnies or something.

Speaking about consumption of meat infecting people, it does. We strapped a piece of wendigo meat to a monkey's chest and after thrashing around in discomfort, it ripped off the flesh and ate it. It promptly became a wendigo monkey. So at the very least, we have precedent to assume that eating wendigo meat directly infects you. And the infection causes the meat of a host's body to become more and more like a wendigo's, we can assume it would eventually become the exact same as a Wendigo's meat. I wouldn't think there would be much of a distinction between "Wendigo beast who ate a bunch of wendigo meat" and "Wendigo Prime" when it comes to infection.

I also feel like no amount of training of a normal animal (or hell, even a human) could resist the infection's increased levels of aggression. This shit is like super rabies, you do understand, right?

Start asking how Goose feels and ask if it has a name. If it doesnt we can come up with one. Clarence sounds like a good name.
>>
>>4926595
Remember that the Hungry, when we threw the dead wendigo monkey at it, actually STOPPED ITSELF from immediately gorging, examined the monkey corpse up close, then started chuckling to itself before eating the monkey anyway. I don't think that's a good sign there. A wendigo is already a being closely related to cannibalism. What happens if a wendigo cannibalizes other wendigo instead of hunting humans and other lesser animals?

A.) It either just found it incredibly funny we fed it itself or B.) That is a loop of cannibalism that will empower it somehow. Needlessly to say, no.

Howard
>>
>>4926595
This is literally just assumptions on your part. There is a clear difference between dead meat, which is converted into more wendigo flesh, and living, which is not converted on touch but will mutate on ingestion. What i want to find out is if the meat of mutated animals will in turn infect others, and what will happen if we let an infected animal live for long enough. The main difference between the boar and the wendigo is that the boar was still alive after being infected, with hormones being produced in large quantities in order to influence its temprament. The wendigo itself is undead, and does not seem to need normal biochemical communication in order to function. Considering that we didn't get any reports of large populations of undead wendigo-beasts emerging after the capture of the Hungry i think it's rather unlikely that it works as a zombie virus and can spread itself indefinitely.
>>
>>4926595
Also, there is a fundamental difference between rabies, which actively destroys higher cognitive functions, and the wendigo infection, which again has only been observed to produce hormones in order to influence behavior. We should probably also attempt to observe what happens to an animals brain when it is infected, just in case there are any non biological forces that are influencing it, but otherwise my point stands.
The human trials are necessary because it is very likely that humans are the only species capable of actually being turned into new wendigo. We could ask Ty in order to confirm it, but seeing how uniquely the Hungry reacts to specifically human flesh it is very unlikely that any living being could become one. Also because, as stated previously, there would be way more of them since scavangers will eat any flesh without hesitation, and are much more prevalent in the Wendigos natural habitat.

>>4926507

Okay, from the information we have, i think we cab deduce some base facts.

1. The Goose is alive. It's metabolism (or perhaps some innate supernatural factor) produces body heat, and it requires food to persist. It will heat up its containment cell passively over time. We could possibly connect the ventilation systems of its cell with that of the Hungrys' in order to counteract both of their respective influences on temperature with no cost to us. That is only an option if the Goose doesn't require a high temperature, however.

2. It has not regenerated the apparent damage it has sustained, but doesn't seem bothered by it either. This might mean that it is merely severely deformed, or it could indicate that it is incapable of rapidly healing damage, but feels little to no pain.

3. It can lay eggs. Common myths like the original golden goose suggests some conceptual value to these eggs, but they could also hatch into ravenous monsters or be thermonuclear bombs. Once it lays one we should immediately analyse it with ultra sound or x-ray scanners.

4. Its golden skin is highly resistant to sharp objects. Bullets probably won't work against it, doubly so since it seems resistant or immune to pain. It would be prudent to test the efficiency of tranquilising compounds against it, since being able to down it would make studying it much easier. I suggest that we order a diverse array of such chemicals to out in its food once we figure out what it eats.

5. Its intelligence is unknown. It could be a big, dumb bird or a sentient affront to god, but until we interact with it, we have no way of knowing.
I second sending the expendables to attempt to talk with it, and if that fails, we could replicate the trials done on corvids in order to find out exactly how intelligent it is.
>>
>>4926684
All of this seems very well thought-out and I support it.

I also support naming L2 "Clarence".
>>
>>4926627
>That is a loop of cannibalism that will empower it somehow.
QM should throw "Wendigo Monkey Cannibalism Loop" as a test on the list before we fuck up irreversibly, if we haven't already by feeding wendigo monkey to The Hungry. Answers the question of "What happens if a wendigo cannibalizes another singular wendigo, or several wendigo?"
>>
Everybody read this to refresh yourselves
http://read.gov/aesop/091.html
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Goose_that_Laid_the_Golden_Eggs
>>
i suggest naming the thing "Other Pissbaby", "Oversized Plumosite", "Orthopedically Painless" or "Ordinary Pennsylvanian".
Also supporting anything leaving us with the acronym "OP", just so to make things confusing,
>>
>>4926653
Rabies was just a comparison, I know it's not literally super rabies. I still find that we should test on animals FIRST before we try creating a humanigo or something. That and look, man, "wendigo hellhounds that we probably can't even control" is something the god damn Umbrella Corporation would make. Maybe if it we used them as a biological weapon we dropped into a battle field, sure, but I think that's the only use such a creature would have. It still seems like it has a lot of complications unless the tests prove otherwise.

>>4926642
Fair enough I suppose. I have no issue with trying to see if the meat of a mutated animal infects others. I am a bit concerned on how we're going to be able to contain a Wendigo beast for a long period of time unless you just want to dump it into C2 to let it tard rage and I'm kinda wary of doing it for some reason.

>>4926684
>1
I want to assume that it's the metabolism since they said it does need to eat to live. Smart idea on the Wendigo air venting thing, though.
>2
"Signs of neglect" make me want to say yes to both "severely deformed" and "incapable of rapidly healing damage".
>3
Oh, absolutely. Best case scenario, like in the original story, it's literally just a solid hunk of gold.
>4
I think there might be a slight difference between a bunch of scalpels and a bullet when it comes to damaging something but I do think we should find a way to disable it regardless if that is the case. Maybe one of the safety measures we can install is some vents that pour sleeping gas into the room?
>5
Agreed.
>>
>>4926103
Well, uh, at least this thing seems docile... I actually have no doubts that this thing could kick the Hungry's ass in a fight. If we have tasers, I'd like to test them on this thing, but again, it doesn't seem angry or anything, so I guess just get someone in the glass and try to talk to it.

Well, there isn't anything that looks immediately monetizable about it, besides maybe just selling it's flesh, so just put him on the backburner and let's worry about how we're going to harvest flesh form the Hungry first.

>Hungry lunges at the golden goose
>claws scrape metal flesh and Hungry screams in pain
>briefly looks down at his paw

Would be funny
>>
>>4926748
Maybe we can ask Ty if there's any tales of such things? Wendigo consuming other Wendigo or themselves, I mean. Not monkeys specifically.
>>
>>4926684
>We could possibly connect the ventilation systems of its cell with that of the Hungrys' in order to counteract both of their respective influences on temperature with no cost to us.
If the Hungry produces cold and the Goose produces heat, we could also make a very effective engine out of it and get lots of free electricity. It wouldn't even require us to directly connect the ventilation between the two cells, just in case the goose releases spores or something.

The kettle, unfortunately, isn't big enough to stick it into. It'd need something like a pool to be fully immersed, considering its size.

Will be adding these prospective tests to the list, and commencing an operation to feed it animal-appropriate food, as well as sending someone to talk to it.

>The kettle, unfortunately, isn't big enough to stick it into.

thats a shame. I would have much preferred to stick it in a giant kettle, if only for the memes.
>>
>>4927750

First, you get some food ready. You slip in the food using the feeding chute (Which is the only free modification the cell comes with, upgrades will be necessary for $100 to customise C3 further). It immediately goes for the greens, pecking at them and honking softly. It at least attempts to eat everything that you throw in there, including inorganic materials and garbage. At one point it starts choking and has to vomit it out. Seems like it's very indiscriminate, like an animal.

John turns on the intercom and attempts communication with it.

>"Uhh... Hey there. Hello. Can you hear me? Hello? Big duck?"
>"Honk. Quack. Boo! Uh... Boss, it doesn't give a shit."

You then move on to the next step. You flicker on the light, allowing the glass to become two-ways. L2-NA honks in surprise as it spots the human, suddenly in such close proximity to it. It then charges forward, slamming its entire bulk into the glass and spreading its arms to look bigger.

"HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK!"

Meanwhile, you pitch some tests to Oscar. She seems to believe Operation Hellhound has merits. However, she doubts it'll be cost-efficient in the end, as K9 units are already extremely specialised, and further narrowing that field down may have unpredictable results, that are hard to carry out on a macro scale.

Feeding it infected creatures is a good idea. Unfortunately, you're rapidly running out of space to keep monkeys in containment, while not sticking biohazards out into the hallways. She mentions wanting a lab built so she can deal with all these tests, and would appreciate a colleague or two.

And she likes the idea of using two creatures to ease each others' containment, but dislikes the idea of containment procedures relying solely on each other.

Ah, and of course...

"Hungry... So hungry... Cold again. Cold, freezing-cold. Help...? Hungry. Just a bite..."

So it's not sapient and it's just a wild beast. It also tried to eat whatever we threw it's way. Tried to attack John through the glass and attempted to look bigger for intimidation?

Start writing a file for the Golden Goose and note down the following
>No higher intelligence unlike the other entity, the Hungry, we have in storage. Unable to communicate back.
>Tried to attack a human when it saw it by bashing against the glass. When it failed, it attempted to make itself look bigger.
>When given foods of different types and even inedible garbage, it ate it al. Seems indiscriminate about how it ate

Should we try doing the whole "toss a monkey at the wendigo in exchange for meat" again or what? Also we should probably tell John to get away from the Golden Goose to see if it calms down.
>>
I say we get started on the Material Strength Test just so we can learn more about what materials are optimal for restraining The Hungry later on. But while doing the kettle experiment can enable us to better use The Hungry for power generation and get us more money from THE COMPANY, the Hungry is always active. The sooner we can succeed in restraining the Hungry, the better for our workers to breathe easier in our facility. Wendigo monkey cannibalism test can wait to later, assuming us feeding The Hungry that wendigo monkey the other day won't have immediate consequences or bullshit we'll be faced with. Speaking of consequences, is THE COMPANY aware of the potential fallout of wendigo meat being unaccounted for after being spent as vehicular armor? They have teams to recover and dispose of that properly, yes?
Pacifying the goose is also priority right now. Note down to order waterfowl feed for geese and similar animals, around 2-3 varieties to cycle through so its not the same every time. Looking into goose handling and care should also be something to do. Youtube is enough to get some idea of how it works and what we'll need for our golden goose here. I was thinking we could use a pool of water for it, but not only is it really big but the body temperature being the boiling point of water will quickly boil and evaporate any pool of water we put this thing to swim in.
I really want to get enough money to buy a second researcher and have a proper lab to the right of the archive. Teaching the expendables how to get the antifreeze is good, as multitasking for efficiency is always good. Maximizing money-making is a must, except if it would endanger everything else. Let's remember the fable of the golden goose...

Let's see what the Goose's reaction is to normal animals. Show it a monkey and a lab rat from behind the glass (without letting it see any humans). Then we could try opening the airlock door just enough to shove a rat inside.

>>4927924
Aw, I feel bad for it. Normally with animals scared of humans, I think they just have humans sit there and have them realize "hey, it's not trying to kill me." Unfortunately, we can't really do that with this giant goose of doom...

Order a goose costume/actual goose to see reaction for that?

I also feel bad for the hungry, but I know deep down it's whiny pissbaby. Ignore it for now, but make sure the guards are aware they'll most likely need to start shooting it daily before the end of the week.

Also, pencil in a renovation for a room to the right of the research lab, a gun range.

Since it's already aggressive maybe we should go ahead and attempt pacification, if nothing else than to see if it's particularly resistant to small arms fire or not, although that may permanently sour our relations with it.

You turn off the light. For a moment, it keeps honking at the panel, but calms down once it realises nobody is there. You get John to move one of the monkey cages behind the glass and wait for its reaction. It hisses and seems suspicious of the monkey, but doesn't pay it much mind. When you get him to stick a rat through the feeding chute, The Golden Goose chases it around to try and stomp on it. It eventually crushes it and starts nibbling at the pancake.

Meanwhile, you decide to test what materials The Hungry is able to rip through with its strength. You dust off those puzzle cubes, stick meat inside, and then put them into the cell. It immediately begins trying to dig the meat out. Looks like it'll be busy for a while. It doesn't whine while actively 'hunting' for the food, though. Oscar sits behind the glass and observes. She notes that the hunger aura is greatly diminished. However, it feels way colder today, and she shivers as she watches it.

Jeremy, Mac and Jim look like they're about to take advantage of the new console you got them. They settle in the Archives and get ready to play.

Forgot to cut this part out, sorry. The actual status is that they're both passive right now.

So the threat level of the Golden Goose seems pretty low as of now. Outside of it getting pissy when seeing a human, it hasn't done anything that really warrants a lot of prodding (hell, I think as long as we keep it fed it probably doesn't care). It only really reacted strongly when exposed to a human, the other two animals didn't really cause as much of a hostile reaction (well depends if you count "stomping on a rat" as hostile.)

I'm starting to think about the whole "golden goose" and "the goose that laid golden eggs" connection. Both stories involved people attempting to harm/exploit a goose for their own profit, using resulting in the downfall of the greedy person. Do you think there's any connection we can draw from that and apply to this thing? Let's try doing "feeding it a microbot by mixing it in with some food" to see how it's insides look, though. I'm pretty sure they can handling boiling temperatures, right?

>>4930597
>>4930635
Noted, added to the orders.

The Hungry is continuing to rip through the boxes. It seems like it has trouble directly prying apart the stronger materials with its bare hands. Right now, it's struggling with reinforced steel, while anything less than that has been ripped open over time. Its bloodied its nails, and the floor in the process. The meat inside seems to invigorate it, though, and as it's actively 'hunting', it continues staying quiet and entertained. What's concerning is that there's now a ton of metal shrapnel around its cell.

The Golden Goose has the camera bots stuffed into its food. You watch their feed. Hey, it looks normal inside it! At first. There's a stomach, which looks similar to the inside of a large avian's, such as an ostrich or emu. There's also chunks of digested food and scraps of... metal? Huh. It almost looks like chips and flakes of foil. The bots swirl about inside. Once they start trying to squeeze past the stomach and into the rest of the system, however, their feed goes dark. You frown as you observe the screen. Their connection is better than this. Acid should have taken a while to damage them, and they can work in high temperatures (The inside is very hot, their sensors display). There aren't any technical issues. Yet, you just can't get them to display the insides of this creature.

okay, that is certainly anomalous and the whole "the pissbaby is entertained while having something to hunt" is interesting. That's a roadblock but I really don't want to do anything risky to try bypassing that like cutting it open. Need I remind you of the story of the goose that lays golden eggs?

We should probably inform Oscar of this and prod her if she has any ideas what's the cause of the weird connection error is after the material strength test is done. We might also need to order some safety apparel that can protect someone from extreme heat (or hell, maybe even make some of our own through wendigo means[trademarked]) if the tranquilizers work and we can try getting some material off the bird.

Theroize that the goose is somehow refining the food into eggs. Wait, ask if the goose has just pooped while they were transferring it to us. Get someone to search up how to help with abused animals, we really can't do much with the goose if it tries to stomp us on contact and we risk destroying it/crippling it when we defend ourselves.


Also, nice, we found another way to delay the hungry's tantrums. Again, we'll probbably need to light him up and go on the warpath before the end of the week, but it's something.

GM, I know for meta reasons you probably won't give us monsters that can't be used to make profit, but what happens if we find out that is the case? Do we just let them free or are they killed?
>>
>>4930716
Given that we got the meat at 45%, couldn't we cut it at, say 94% and split it into two halves which both continue growing? The mass of both would be more then the original and since the mass itself was ripped off of The Hungry, it might work ripping half off of it after.

You do realize how risky and flatout insulting it would be to [THE COMPANY] if we just let go of an anomaly willy nilly. That would almost certainly result in a deathsquad knocking down our doors and shooting us in the head. As for killing them?

Pretty sure it's like "if it's way too risky to contain and offers no monetary gain, then maybe" type deal. Like if it's an Apex threat creature that just kills anything that knows that it exists for more than a day and whenever someone dies by this effect, they gain the same property.

We've had it a few hours. Give it time. It could be a heat-generator, a supplement to containing the profitable L1, a course of precious metals, maybe a garbage disposal if it can truly eat anything. We've hardly scratched the surface on L2.

>>
>>4931306

For the sake of fairness, I'd be more inclined to say that: 'This one portion of meat grows at X rate' and keep it that way for that meat sample. Otherwise, there's nothing stopping one from splitting 100% into 100 1% bits, and then saying that they ought to grow at 2% each, resulting in 300% after an hour.

And coupled with the fact that you can also harvest more from the wendigo in terms of percentage, it leads to a very easy infinite-dupe moment. So unfortunately, I'll have to say that the percentage and 2% growth represents the sum total you have in the Facility, and it's limited to 2% an hour no matter what.

>>4930991
In which case, you guys can submit a case for termination procedures. One completely valid option is to consistently (perhaps intentionally) fail to generate any profit from a creature, while having it be a security threat above its worth. In that case, it can either be sent off site, or you might be tasked with its termination. It's a arduous process but will essentially let you 'reroll' your entity.

Answering these two before the update, stay tuned! No update tomorrow, I'll be gone the whole day unfortunately.

Oscar replies that she's not sure. The specifications of the robots are certainly competent enough, so there really shouldn't be a reason they stop working. That must mean that there's some sort of phenomena inside it that knocks out connection, yet isn't observable at all prior to it. The force itself is probably something the bots can't pick up.

Though, she reiterates that that's just her theory. And with that, she gets back to observing The Hungry.

The Hungry struggled with the stronger materials. When it got to reinforced steel, it was no longer able to smash it with just its physical strength. At first, you and Oscar assume that by making a room out of it, it might be halted completely.

And that's when it starts spazzing out. The Hungry activates that odd, semi-gaseous form that it uses to generate momentum. You've seen this plenty, when it lunged at prey, killed Chanstopher, and while its just been flickering within the cell. Its limbs descend over and over in a half-translucent state, battering the cubes in a blur. You can see bloody flecks flying out from damage to itself. But eventually, given enough time, it manages to smash through materials up to titanium strength, and gets the meat inside.

It'll take time for it to smash through doors. But if it keeps up a sustained assault on one of the cells, its only a matter of hours before it can get all the way through.

>>4930991
You ask. Yes, the goose did do that. You request images. [THE COMPANY] has catalogued little details like that. They do have a sample of normal-seeming bird excretion, though it had traces of gold and metallic compounds within the organic material. It was also intensely hot to the touch, but soon cooled down.

While you're working, you receive a phone call. Hey, it's... it's Ty! Ty Fiddler. You haven't heard from him in a while, since you haven't had $150 to spare on calls for quite a while. But he's calling you for once. Hopefully he doesn't expect you to pay to just pick up.

Without countering his gas state transformation, I think we cannot feasibly contain the pissbaby in any material. He takes time to break those high strength material, but this is a test we're presenting to him with the reward of food. Plus, he's in our containment cell where he cannot merely abandon the effort and go hunt something else or leave the meat alone, such as in the wilderness out in nature. There's stories of hunters and other people surviving wendigo attacks by merely shooting at them with incendiary rounds, or using fire/torches until they gave up and left the humans alone. While that's good and all, that's not our facility and that's not proper containment for a wendigo. In-containment actions and priorities are not necessarily the same as actions and priorities out in its natural habitat. I think we need to do more research into the Hungry's gaseous form and its weaknesses. We already know high-density gases are the way, but is there anything else we can test out? Electrified barriers? Ionized gases? The wendigo's weakness as well as that of its substances and materials is heat and flame, yet its blood and meat and powers are built to counter heat and flame at the same time. Definitely a puzzle to solve for us to be able to completely neuter this fucker and turn him into our free flesh and blood money farm.

I think the goose turns the things it eats into precious metals. That would explain the metal chips in its stomach and the traces of gold and metal compounds in its shit.

>"Hey there Ty! I hope you're not expecting me to pay for this call, at least it full, I couldn't if I wanted to, we got a bunkroom for the employees."

Alright, so I think the way we should test this goose is feeding it different foods to see how much gold poop it makes. I say we should try foie gras first, maximum meta-cruelty. (It's fatty goose/duck liver)

>>4932075
I think we should try this at some point, if gases can slow down the speed it travels, then the lack thereof will either make it very fast (nothing stopping it but it will prob not be use to having that speed)or prevent the ability completely.

Let's not ask ty, he's only relevant to the wendigo, not need for him to be asked about every affair of the site, He's just another form of employee, not a lifeline.

I’d like to do a conditioning experiment with the goose. We know it is aggressive towards humans by default, but this seems to be normal goose territorial behavior rather than SCP tier homicidal rage. It just is more capable of killing due to its size.

To this end, we train the goose to view staff in certain clothing as a non threat. First have a mannequin visible in the window. It should act aggressive at first, but eventually calm down as the stimulus ceases to matter to it. Then dress the mannequin in something easily identifiable (silly hat for example), then later try a staff member in same clothing. It will take time, but eventually the goose will be trained to view staff in that clothing as a non-threat. Betraying this trust is inadvisable, as we’d have to start over.

A vacuum, not yet. However, you guys have tested it with gas before. Filling the area with dense gases makes it hard for it to use that ability. However, it would impede sending staff inside while the cell is flooded.

[THE COMPANY] responds to the query. The Goose was captured in a location that's currently classified, but somewhere in the countryside, away from large groups of people. They first located it with a satellite, after spotting a major thermal anomaly roaming around. Teams arrived to bag it, and reported that its current state was the same as when they found it. They didn't manage to take it down in the end. It was contained by luring it into a mobile containment unit and sealing the door shut until it calmed down inside eventually. One team member perished when he was used as bait, and another is under treatment for severe burns. Tranquilizer gas was cycled into it, and the unit was attached to a transport, generating dangerous amounts of heat the whole way.

The egg is still under observation. They can't seem to x-ray it properly, despite surface scrapings showing that it's made of gold. All scans display it as being a completely solid block of gold, coated in precious gemstones of genuine value. They resemble Faberge eggs in design.

However, simply checking weight and tapping it reveals that it's not solid, directly contradicting the scans. They're holding it until they decide there's nothing else they can try but cracking it open. The egg is also extremely hot.

Jim and John assemble their third Expendable buddy. They have a short argument about whether to call him 'Basket Bill' or 'Sam Dunk', and when you ask them to get back to work, they demand you decide for them. Pick one of the names, fellas!

The mannequin is made visible in the window. Just like before, the Golden Goose begins honking and screeching, puffing its wings up and beginning to attack the glass. It stops after about twenty minutes of pounding, during which you stare at the feed in worry. The glass is extremely strong, but you're not sure whether it can survive a sustained, bloodlusted assault.

It stares at the mannequin for the rest of the hour, refusing to act or take its eyes off it. What next?

So we know that tranquillizer gas is useful to some extent and that the eggs share the same weird effect as we saw earlier where you can't see into it. Also, Sam Dunk sounds way cooler.

I suppose just leave it there until it either gets really agitated again or eventually calms down. Let it know that the thing is a non-threat and isn't doing anything.. Also when it comes to the Ty thing, should we ask what it means if the are around a wendigo gets REALLY cold? Like colder than usual?
>>
we should install a pond with a circulation system which could safely power a steam machine
however the liquid used -as already mentioned- cannot be water...
it should also be something with good heat absorption capabilities and not poisonous
some kind of metal perhaps?

>feed it with some greens
ask to boys about how bad the pissbabys hunger effect is around cell-03
could we get a temperature reading on our still nameless feathery friends cell?
im also backing anyone who comes up with a female, not obviously duck name for the thing, so we can finally settle the mater

I rather keep the official designations as cold and brief as possible (Hungry for the pissbaby, Golden Goose for...the yeah) but I think a good name for the duck goose thing would be Della or Yabba as the unofficial designation. Maybe set up a small poll among the staff to see which name they like the most and if they have any suggestion.

For a permanently liquid pool, we could use gallium. No danger of freezing with the goose stuck inside, unlike a metal with a higher melting point. Not incredibly toxic like mercury. A bit of research shows that gold and gallium probably won't interact that much, but it might be worth some testing first to make sure we don't turn our goose into a slime monster.

Alternatively, we could use silicone oil, which is nonflammable, mostly inert, and stays liquid up to around 300°C. Lubing up our goose might have some negative effects though.

Instead of a proper pool, we could try to rig up some kind of water shower so the goose can bathe without having to submerse itself. The water would instantly vaporize on the goose's skin and the steam collected into a big fume hood for power generation.

sounds good

i like the idea of the shower
lets see what OP thinks is a fair price for implementing it

>Ty
Tell Ty we've been feeding it monkeys after its given us a lot of its flesh and blood, otherwise scrap meat. We've managed to suppress it once with some success and only one injury. Also what >>4934783 said about asking Ty about the intensified cold. And we should ask Ty if he knows what happens if a wendigo ever cannibalizes another wendigo
>Goose
Will the location cease to be classified at some point? And have they traced the goose back to its initial location from where they found it, since a mobile heat signature must have left a trail in the countryside easy for THE COMPANY to backtrace? That its current state was the same as when THE COMPANY found it bears further investigation, which the backtrace might shed light on.
Interesting property of the eggs and the goose. Both must involve black box processes, where if they are revealed in any way they cease to function. Just like cutting open the golden goose kills the magic at work, cracking open the golden egg makes it cease to be a Kinder Surprise. We should look into using an egg for thermal energy generation, assuming we ever get one while we have the goose here. I wonder what Ty would think of the goose and the eggs, and if he or his tribe has some experience dealing with unruly waterfowl.

>>4934835
+1 to feeding the goose with greens for now, until we get the waterfowl feed

>>4934850
I approve of the cold and brief official designations, as well as the poll for informal names

>>4934854
Shower idea is good. Gallium pool would be nice if it works, but we should do more research anyway. As a preliminary pool idea, it is good. Researching goose handling on youtube might be interesting in the meantime
>>
>>4934854

This shower idea is very good.

>>4934773
>>4934775
I support anon's shower and feeding idea, taking temperature readings of both cells, the name "Clarence" for the Golden Goose, and "Sam Dunk" for the mannequin. Sam should remain visible during feeding, if possible, creating a positive association.

This is my revised cell layout. Having the cells in the center is a bad idea, it's causing us to be unable to renovate existing cells without serious airlock shuffling.

Instead we should move everything to the left, with one cell always empty for use as a spare or for general testing. An elevator system connects the used cells with the testing cells, and airlocks separate each cell from both the elevator and the rest of the facility. In addition, we built a steam turbine for the goose and a lab for the testing cell area.
>>
>>4935526
I get the problem with having the cells at the center, and while I haven't got an answer to it yet, I don't think I can agree with this one. The elevator feels like a lot can go wrong. Maybe we can go for a more wide rather then deep to accommodate but that's just a suggestion.
>>
>>4935724
In RTSes, you build tall or you build wide. Look em up.
>>
>>4935526
I think this is a good idea. We could use a reinforced elevator and an empty cell to shuffle around our critters at will.
>>
>>4935751
yes but I wouldn't exactly call this stellaris or civ. This is more management/simulator i'd say. If we are going with that analogy then I'd say we build wide since building down too much has its cons given our current state of affairs.
>>
Well technically we can build in 3D so it should be possible to build an elevator shaft in front of the holding cells.
>>
Regarding shower: we don't even know if it WANTS to bathe/shower yet, maybe it doesn't like water and is fine with it's body temperature. Kiddy pool would be a cheaper way of finding this out before we install a whole shower unit for the thing.
>>
Research topics for GG:
1) Heat creation: where does the heat come from? Can we harness this energy source?
2) Insulation: Something about it's body and eggs seems to be highly resistant to signals and waves of any kind. Possible applications: stealth/smuggling, high-security rooms, radiation protection.
3) Gold production: experiment with it's food to see if we can somehow increase the gold output in it's shit.
>>
>>4935526
>The elevator feels like a lot can go wrong.
exactly. if one creature manages to break into the shaft, it will be able to open every other creatures way too
>>4935526
>Instead we should move everything to the left
right under the living quarters, really?

airlock shuffling is fine if we can harden the things

>>4936000
>Regarding shower: we don't even know if it WANTS to bathe/shower yet
im sure she encountered rains while she lived in the wild
dont think she will mind
worst case senario, we give her a break when it starts to visibly stress her out
>>
>>4936134
But what's the harm with trying the kiddie pool first, before we go through the whole renovation for something we might not even need?
>>
>>4936194
no harm, i just dont see much benefit
but ok
lets try it
>>
>>4936134
The elevator is always separated from every cell by an airlock. You can even see it in the drawing.
>>
>>4936370
It would still afford an escaoee the opportunity to be alone in an elevator shaft with access to all those airlocks, and no easy qay ti get in there in time to stop it breaching the others.
>>
>>4936000
A kiddie pool will pribably have its contents evaporate, and then have uts plastic or vinyl components melt onto the goose, almost immediately. Also, I want to try that steam collection idea.

>>4936020

All solid lines of inquiry.
>>
>>4936373
But that’s still a more secure method of transport than what we have now. We can’t call in that elite team to help us move the Wendigo every time.

Like right now we need to clean up the Wendigo’s cell and upgrade the Goose’s cell. How are we going to do that? Eventually they’ll start attacking in the airlock and escape.
>>
>>4936376
>A kiddie pool will pribably have its contents evaporate, and then have uts plastic or vinyl components melt onto the goose, almost immediately.
This is the reality of the situation. >>4936378 also brings up a good point about how much we need reinforcement, but we need to pour our money into researching and making more money for that first.
>>
the most secure would be to have too cells for each entity
if one needs repair we send/force it to the other
obviously, it will cost tons tho
>>
>>4936403
100 degrees is not that hot bruh
>>
>>4936784
100 degrees CELESIUS. That's the boiling point of water.
>While the world's countless types of plastic have differing melting points, a wide variety of common plastics begin to melt at 100 degrees Celsius (212 F)
>>
>>4936789
I am aware. it is still not that hot. Any hotplate works with much higher temperatures, otherwise it would take very long to get the pot to the boiling point.
>>
So while it would eventually melt plastic/rubber/whatever, it is not like some anons describe it, water will immediately go up into steam and pool melt down. The kiddie pool idea was single use anyway, just to see how it reacts to water and if it feels hot and wants to cool down. Once we have established that it does, I fully support anons shower idea. Just want to avoid building a shower to then find out that the creature looks like a duck, but behaves like a cat when it comes to water.

wait a sec
>wendigo uses ice
>goose is a heat furnace
You know what must be done.

also we are about to get fucked rn
>>
>>4936846
Gold will easily be shredded and torn up from the wendigo, plus the cold the wendigo uses might shatter it, or the heat and cold combined might shock it enough for weakening it
>>
>>4936373
If it came down to it, we could try to pin any escapees against the top or the bottom of the shaft using the elevator car itself, which would minimize damage to only one other cell.

>>4934775
With regards to the shower or pool, I think we should stick a garden hose through the feeding opening and see what the goose thinks of flowing water.

A really good low-cost, low-risk idea.
