A Dry Sense Of Hunger

"Lycus needs to eat, but he forgot to stock up on cereal and he can't leave his experiment unattended. Can you go buy some for him...? If you do, he'll give you some pans or jars that he's no longer using."
A Dry Sense Of Hunger
Introduction: Wh-what was that noise? Oh... just my stomach.
Requirements: Urgh... I forgot to buy more cereal... again... You, um... (username), isn’t it? I really can’t step away from this experiment...
If completed: Ah... thank you, I could barely hear my equipment over my grumbling stomach... I’m finished with this piece though, here - give it a test run.
If declined: O-oh… I can barely hear my equipment over my grumbling stomach…

Cleaning is Chemistry, Right?

"The lab has flooded, and Lycus needs your help cleaning it up before it ruins his experiments! Get him some cleaning supplies and repair items quickly, and he'll give you a toy from the lab donations."
Cleaning is Chemistry, Right?
Introduction: Quick, please... before the whole l-lab floods!
Requirements: Agh! The safety shower’s on the fritz again... Quick, please... before the whole l-lab floods!
If completed: Ah... thank you. The last thing I need is another electrical short down here... Here, this avoided damage, have it if you like.
If declined: I will go down with this lab! Apblublubblhpbthlpbth…

Controlled Chaos

"The lab is chaotic, and Lycus is looking for a way to organise things. Maybe he could store things in jars? He'll give you some Shards if you can help him."
Controlled Chaos
Introduction: O-okay... maybe it’s not “controlled” exactly...
Requirements: My lab is not disorganized... it’s just... you know... chaotic. Ugh. I suppose I could stand to sort things a little better. I need something to store all these little pieces, first...
If completed: This... oh! I could put screws and nails in these maybe... (username), right? Thank you.
If declined: Perhaps I can use my pockets… Ah! O-oh no! There was a-a hole! Everything spilled!

Friends Forever

"Lycus wants to get Jay a gift she'll appreciate. Do you have any candy he can give to her? In exchange, he'll give you some coffee beans you can use."
Friends Forever
Introduction: Ah, i-it sounds kind of embarrassing when you say it aloud...
Requirements: It’s been a long time since I met Jay... I.. I’m actually not sure what year it was, way back in preschool. She - heh - she accidentally elbowed me in the face. I was in tears, of course, but she immediately took me to the nurse and burst into tears herself apologizing. The next day, she stuffed her pockets full of sweets and gave them all to me at lunch, and well, she’s been my best friend ever since. A-ah! S-s-sorry, no, I-I, that wasn’t - cough - th-that was an unnecessary tangent. Uh. M-my point is, Jay shows her affection with candy, and I wanted to give her something she’d appreciate.
If completed: Thanks, (username), she’ll love it. Uhh... I also got her some coffee, but I.. don’t want to brew it in the lab… Maybe you can use it?
If declined: Too s-sappy? Auh, s-sorry, n-nevermind!

Let's See How This Pans Out

"Lycus's experiment is nearly completed, but he needs more pans to finish it off. Don't ask why, just get him more pans! He'll pay lots of Shards for them."
Let's See How This Pans Out
Introduction: Don't ask questions, just get more pans.
Requirements: This experiment is almost finished... but I need more pans... Why? If you have to ask... you clearly don’t understand what I’m doing...
If completed: What? No, it’s supposed to do that... or at least I am... reasonably certain it’s supposed to do that...
If declined: Ugh... I knew I couldn't trust this to you...

Lycus' Black Thumb

"Robin has brought Lycus food recently and he wants to repay her with some plants. If you're good with plants, maybe you could bring him a flower or herb, in exchange for some miscellaneous items?"
Lycus' Black Thumb
Introduction: Robin doesn't like petri dishes...
Requirements: 1 Rose/Mint
If completed: Ah, thank you, it’s beautiful... She’ll know I didn’t grow it, of course, but better that than nothing... I shouldn't even touch it, just in case...
If declined: Oh no... I should have realized... you're also a plant-killer, aren't you, (username)? At least we have science...

Miranda, Still Defender Of Books

"Lycus needs a book for his experiments, but Campus Supplies refuses to sell him any. He'll give you the Shards for it if you'll buy a copy for him."
Miranda, Still Defender Of Books
Introduction: All those other times were an accident, okay?
Requirements: (Username)... hm. I... may need a favor. I need a book. It’s moderately advanced, but Mir–, Sky- The... Campus Supplies store won’t sell it to me. Something about how my books all end up "singed at the edges" or "damaged beyond use." Bah!
If completed: Tch, I would n-never burn a book unless it was for a very p- particular, important experiment, and I always pay my dues i-if it comes up, I can’t believe she’d... Oh! You’re back. And you have the book! Th-thank you, this really h-helps a lot.
If declined: Tch, I would n-never burn a book unless it was for a very p- particular, important experiment, and I always pay my dues i-if it comes up, I can’t believe she’d... Oh! You're back. But... you don't have what I need. Oh... I see.

One Man’s Trash

"Can you help with Lycus's latest experiment? He needs an interesting miscellaneous item to continue his work, and is willing to trade a different miscellaneous item for it."
One Man’s Trash
Introduction: I need something different. Something new!
Requirements: This experiment is a disaster... I need something different. Something new! Ah, (username)! Please, I can rely on you to help with my research, can’t I? May I trade with you? You must find interesting things around town...
If completed: Aha... This is perfect... Excellent, now I may continue my work...
If declined: I… I must be able to use this for something, surely…

Repairs Are Physics, Right?

"A Kith ran through the lab and damaged all of the equipment there. Now Lycus needs your help to repair it all, quickly! If you bring him some repair items and cleaning items, he'll give you a toy from the Lab."
Repairs Are Physics, Right?
Introduction: Quick, please... before the whole l-lab crumbles!
Requirements: Agh! A Kith ran through here chewing on everything, and I, I was so distracted with m-my notes that… Quick, please… before the whole l-lab crumbles!
If completed: Ah... thank you. The last thing I need is another broken table down here… Here, this avoided damage, have it if you like.
If declined: I will go down with this lab! CRASH!

Stocking Up

"Students keep donating ingredients to the Lab, and Lycus isn't sure what to do with them - he can't eat them raw! If you bring him a cooked food to eat, he'll give the ingredients to you so they don't go to waste."
Stocking Up
Introduction: Why was this left here..?
Requirements: People leave some of the strangest things here. A-are they trying to feed me anonymously? Eggs? Flour? I can't cook these down here or anything... (Username), do.. do you want to trade? If you can get me a snack that I can eat, y-you can have some of these built up ingredients I keep getting. Mom has been giving them the stink eye when I've been bringing them home for her..
If completed: Ah! This looks great! Here you go - good luck making something with them. I promise I kept them out of the experiments fridge.
If declined: Hmm, it… feels like a waste to break them down for my experiments. Oh well, into the pile they go.

Delicious Inputs

"Lycus needs some inorganic miscellaneous items for his Nibblug. In return, you’ll receive some Shards!"
Delicious Inputs
Introduction: Nibblugs learn by nibbling… d-does that mean that if I ask Hypothesis to stop chewing on my equipment, I’m impeding scientific progress?!
Requirements: I can tell that Hypothesis is really interested in learning more about Earth… If you see something interesting on your travels, c-could you maybe pick up it up for them to sample? Maybe a broken gizmo, or some interesting shells, or something like that? O-only if nobody else is using it, of course.
If completed: (Username), this is p-perfect! I really want Hypothesis to be happy on Earth with me, so having an exciting new snack like this will really brighten their day.
If declined: tba

Experimental Playtime

"Lycus asks you to play with your Kith as an experiment. In return, you’ll receive some Shards!"
Experimental Playtime
Introduction: Um, Hypothesis keeps getting s-stuck to some of these toys…
Requirements: I’ve been running experiments to observe how a Kith from the Cosmic Solarium adapts to life on Earth. Today my Nibblug assistant Hypothesis and I will attempt to conduct a simple game of catch, since that’s Iris’s favorite game to play with me and Piper... Um, regardless, we n-need to have a control group before we begin. (Username), could I observe your Kith while they play with something?
If completed: AUGH! HYPOTHESIS, NOOO! WHAT HAVE I D-DONE?! I’ve dropped the ball and smashed my lab partner c-completely flat! My lack of hand-eye coordination has turned me into a destructive m-monster! I- Oh… w-wait… they’re perfectly fine? Phew… Um, at least we learned that Nibblugs don’t have any bones?
If declined: tba

Experimental Reading

"Lycus asks you to read to your Kith as an experiment. In return, you’ll receive some Shards!"
Experimental Reading
Introduction: B-back in the Cosmic Solarium, Hypothesis mostly learned things by eating computer chips, so…
Requirements: I’ve been running experiments to observe how a Kith from the Cosmic Solarium adapts to life on Earth. Today, my Nibblug assistant Hypothesis and I will read some of these non-holographic textbooks and investigate the effects on Hypothesis’ learned logic patterns. Y-you know, like figuring out what not to chew on... Um, regardless, we n-need to have a control group before we begin. (Username), could I observe your Kith while they read something?
If completed: …Well, I d-don’t know that we learned anything about logic patterns, but… now Hypothesis has made a chart ranking all of M-Miranda’s textbooks according to “flavor profile”? Uh… let’s n-not show her this research…
If declined: tba

Experimental Tasting

"Lycus asks you to feed your Kith as an experiment. In return, you’ll receive some Shards!"
Experimental Tasting
Introduction: I hypothesize that Hypothesis will be fond of our next experiment…
Requirements: I’ve been running experiments to observe how a Kith from the Cosmic Solarium adapts to life on Earth. Today I’m going to carefully measure the health of my Nibblug assistant, Hypothesis, as they attempt to sample their latest snack, which appears to be… uh… a p-pair of leggings? I hope those didn’t belong to anybody... Um, regardless, we n-need to have a control group before we begin. (Username), could I observe your Kith while they eat something?
If completed: …Uh, w-wait, a student with bare legs has come s-storming into the University Lab, and they l-look pretty f-furious about- N-no, Hypothesis, wait! Abort experiment! ABORT EXPERIMENT!
If declined: B-but… it’s for science!
