Iaocia

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Iaocia is a strange underground laboratory built on the northeastern forests of Almeria; most of this subterranean lab is hidden deep beneath Visigonian soil. The fact that this below-ground laboratory was built in Visigonia, one of the most deserted regions in all of Almeria, makes one wonder what sort of shady things are taking place in this most secretive of places.

Though the guards do a good job of keeping dangers out, one should be careful, espcially in areas past the gates, keep an eye out for anything small and skittery, and find a source of disease curing if something matching that description dies around you. Otherwise the place is pretty safe.

The Enemies

  • The face-smotherer
  This is an iaoxling covered in pale yellow flesh.  Its ridged, elongated tail weaves to
andvfro like a serpent crawling. Its long, finger-like digits are reminiscent of spider's
legs. It has two rear lung sacs, each on either side of the base of its tail, which
expand and contract together as the creature breathes.  From above the creature resembles
a giant scorpion, whereas from the side it seems more like a crustacean.  You recognize
this as an iaoxling, part of a deadly hive species of predatory killers.
 It has a few thin streamers of churning sickly haze and a tracery of sparkling light
within and around it.  
  It looks about five and seven tenths dimins tall, one and four fifths dimins wide,
and nine twentieths of a dimin front to back.

These creatures, while very weak, have the ability to implant an embryo into your stomach with one of its special attacks. If it succeeds, you're going to die, there is no saving you from this fate as far as I'm aware. In a few hours time, a chest-burster will kill you.

(I've been told a cure disease form Phyrra will abort the egg but I'm not willing to test it. Likely will since symbol of Mithras atop the mansion in Thessalae, which cures diseases/plague, expels the egg.)

I've been told that full face protection can help protect you from this but i have no evidence to back it.

Attempts at consuming an egg will cause the egg to burst open and release a chestburster, though it will not immediately attack you.

A good indicator you're in trouble is if the iaoxling immediately dies after hitting you, as that's the indicator that you've been implanted, and it'd be a good time to find a healer that can cure disease. -Xaolyn

  • The drone
  This is an iaoxi with an intimidating exterior of metallic dark red bone.  Its large,
elongated head has a vaguely phallic resemblance, being smooth and without feature other
than bottom-ridges and jaws lined with shiny teeth.  It has no visible organs for sight or
hearing.  Tube-like protrusions in its exoskeleton run all over its body, and nearly straight
bone-like tubes rise out of its back.  Its waist is narrow and tapered.  Its digits are
finger-like, but end in vicious claws.  It also sports a bony, ridged tail with a prodigious
barb on the end.  You recognize this as an iaoxi, part of a deadly hive species of predatory
killers.
 It is permeated by a haze of lurid greenness.  It has a few thin streamers of churning sickly
haze and a webwork of sparkling light within and around it.  
  It looks about twenty dimins tall, six and three tenths dimins wide, and one and three fifths
dimins front to back.

Very durable enemy, shoots acid, and is weak against air, fire, and force damage.


  • The Queen
  This is an iaorexi with an intimidating exterior of copper bone.  Her large, elongated head
bears an enormous bony crest that protects the creature like a giant plate of armor.  Receding
in and sometimes emerging to make an appearance is her actual head which bears a massive set of
perfectly articulated enormous fangs.  Her features are smooth and she bears no visible organs
for sight or hearing.  Jagged protrusions in her exoskeleton run all over her body, and
perfectly straight bone tubes shaped like giant spikes rise out of her back.  She has large,
muscular hips to support her massive girth, and she leans forward to balance her weight.  The
digits on her hands are elongated muscular fingers tipped with vicious claws, equipping her four
bony arms with deadly weapons.  A reticulated bony tail -- like a spinal column, but splayed
outward into sharp ridges -- stretches far beyond the reach of her arms.  She uses her tail both
for balance and to impale prey with killer speed and precision with a giant harpoon-like barb on
the end.  You recognize this as an iaorexi, egg-layer of a deadly hive species of predatory
killers.
 She is permeated by a thick, intense field of lurid greenness and a dim sparkling light.
See has a webwork of churning sickly haze within and around her.  
  She looks about sixty-two and a half dimins tall, nineteen and a half dimins wide, and four
and nine tenths dimins front to back.

Extremely tough, has a low dodge rating, typical for something this large, shoots for massive acid damage and, like the drones, is weak to force and air, and fire damage.
