Firewall's bust, by Jacques00
You are fighting the Firewall. It is a mighty, motley collection of heavy duty industrial tools welded together to form a hulking robot, at least eight feet in height. Its round, riveted torso combines with its long, piston-driven arms to give it a hunched, gorilla-like profile. In way of hands it has implacably strong crane grapnels, and its two feet are square and support-flapped, built to take any kind of weight. Its head is a square, blank screen, on which a red exclamation mark blinks interminably.
History/Personality/Information of Note
The Firewall must have been built by Hand So as a guardian to her A.I. core. It is controlled by a V.I. and possibly partially by So herself.
The Firewall is hostile upon encounter and will instantly engage in combat with Steele.
The Firewall is fitted with a decent shield.
Its combat actions include:
- Attack - Claw attack that causes penetrating kinetic damage.
- Electropulse - Attack to disable shields.
- Flamethrower - Attack that causes burning damage and inflicts the "Burning" status effect for 1-3 rounds.
- 40% weakness to electric attacks
- 100% immunity to lust attacks
The Firewall will try to disable the opponent's shields first before using its flamethrower attack.
After victory in combat, Steele can choose to either go back and let the overloaded computers explode, or move forward to try to save Hand So's A.I.
If advancing forward, there is an option to loot the A.I. if Steele has a high enough intelligence. Entering with intelligence under 15 will have a 5% chance of passing, and being a Tech Specialist class will have a 10-point advantage. After successfully passing the intelligence check, So's A.I. will be transferred to a data bead in which Steele can decide to keep in the inventory or completely destroy.
The Firewall is worth 750 XP.
Currently, the Firewall has no sex scenes.
The Firewall is associated with Colenso's The Hnngularity questline.
