You are CPO Cleona Wilhelmina Kukyendall, and you are having a pleasant dream. "Got another one for you, Cleo!" yells Chief Kokolova, pointing out a crate. You're assisting the USS Tullibee's crew load some equipment for the substriker and skimmer tests, and it's slow going. Someone decided it was a good idea to put smaller crates inside of bigger crates that don't fit inside, so you've been opening the big ones first. The good news is that the crates fit on the sub now. The bad news is there's a ton of smaller crates waiting to be loaded. You acknowledge him with a grunt, picking up another in a seemingly-endless line of crates. As you head to the Ambient Pressure Chamber in the Tullibee, you bump into Henrieta Falkowska, an eager young Polish witch. "Oh, sorry, Chief Kukyendall!" she says, quickly scooting out of your path. All you can manage is another grunt before you set down the crate.
>>19105347 "Sub-Lieutenant Falkowska, what can I do for you?" you ask, tapping your impatiently. You've got a lot of crates to load. "Oh, uh...I kind of wanted to ask you the same thing," she answers shyly. You blink in surprise. "But you don't have to do anything. You and the others are just here for testing, right?" "Yeah, but...you don't have to do anything either. I don't think you should have to do this on your own..." she says guiltily. You chuckle. "Falkowska, I'm not doing this on my own. I'm helping the crew of the Tullibee." As you say this, a disappointed look forms on Henrieta's face. "Still...I think I could use some help." At this, her face brightens. "Please, let me!" she says. "And call me Yetta, that's what the others do." "Sure thing, Yetta. Come on, there's plenty more crates where this came from." Pleased with finding someone who isn't a freeloader, you and Henrieta head back to the dock to continue loading the busy ship.
No clue what's going on? Here's the writefaggotry backstory.http://pastebin.com/iwLVQX79tl;dr? You are CPO Kukyendall, one of the first subwitches. You were testing the Substriker along with a new setup called the Skimmer when your sub and fellow pilots got into some serious shit.And lost.>Yetta's dead, I saw it!>You're alive!>Other
And now the waiting begins! I can't wait to see both of the people that are interested in this quest.
>>19105347Grunt again! It's our only chance to do something productive!
Oh, hey, Kotters is doing something other than fap fiction!>You're Alive!
>>19105352Whoops!And then you wake up. Groaning, you look about your surroundings. You're in a dark room, numerous hexagonal and octagonal shapes embossed on the walls. A quick look-around tells you you're probably in a cell of some kind, with bare necessities and no loose objects...and Lt. Rae Caulders! You sit up a bit too quickly and the room threatens to disappear in darkness. Steadying yourself, the room comes back into focus. You get up to examine Caulders, and she's not looking good. Her breathing is shallow and ragged, her clothes in rags. Strangely, parts of her skimmer are still on her, though much has been removed as if by an impossibly sharp and precise blade. Though wrapped in various bandages, they're placed haphazardly, as if by someone that hadn't the faintest clue where they should go. You're no medical witch, but even you can tell she needs some serious help and soon. Suddenly, the wall opens. You spin around at the noise, and see- "Yetta!?" She nods at her name, and steps inside.
Well i am here and waiting. Lets see how this goes.
>>19105400...and this is where the decision is to be made.I'm off to a wonderful start, gentlemen and gentlemen.
>>19105400>you're alive>Implying I am actually going to read it>Implying I am not doing this because you are my friend
>>19105400>Yetta's dead, I saw it!You're dead, how the hell are you here.
>>19105400>YOUR ALREADY DEAD!
>>19105400>Its a trap i swear it. Attack her.
>Yetta's dead, I saw it!Roughs start, eh?
>I SAW YOU DIE!
>Yetta's dead, I saw it!"It'sss okay. My new friendsss fixed me up really good. Wanna sssee?"Sanity roll hoooo!
>Yette's dead! I know because I KILLED YOU MYSELF!
>>19105543In the dark corners of the Earth, evil things sluber deep beneath the waves, beneath our notice; until now. What grim horror did they unleash, masquerading as Yetta that day?
>>19105400 "You're dead, I saw it." You can still remember the image of the Tullibee being struck by its own torpedo, Yetta still inside. You shudder as you think of her and all the other decent people that were on board at the time. As you draw back from Yetta, she tilts her head, confused. She reaches out to you. "Who are you?" you demand, moving again to maintain as much distance as you can from her in this tiny cell. "Why are you doing this?" Yetta remains strangely silent. She freezes, as if in recognition, and then her image fades away. Standing in her place is a Martian, its oddly-shaped head and many tentacles coming into focus. Horrified at what it was trying to do, you take a fighting stance...and Caulders' breathing suddenly gets more ragged. With little choice, you turn your back to the Martian, futilely trying to think of something you can do for her. "Lt. Caulders..." You pump your magic into her, blindly. Just the mere presence of excess magic can help heal a person, but without the finesse and control of a trained witch, Caulders isn't going to stand a chance. Deep in concentration, you jump as the Martian touches your hand with a tentacle. >Push the creature away from Caulders >Ignore it, Caulders needs help. >Other
>Otherrip it off
>>19105590We murder the fuck out of it. Doing shit for Caulders won't matter if we get Japanese School Girled by the tentacled abomination. Unless this is secretly Japanese School Girl Quest. Then we roll with it. Tentacled Abomination is my waifu et all.
>>19105590tentacles? Touching us? Oh dear. We know how this ends.Where is the Rape Whistle?
>>19105590MURDER IT WITH YOUR FISTS!
>>19105590>Caulders needs help! Ignore!
>>19105590>Ignore for right now, heal Caulders
Caulders is better off dead than a prisoner of the aliums and so are we.Attack the alium.
>>19105649What if we crossed...
>>19105590Huh. I was close I have to say.
Back.Damn, I thought you guys didn't like grim dark?
>>19105896 You've had enough from this creature. It insulted Yetta's image and now it's interfering with you as you try to heal Caulders? You break off from healing Caulders; you probably weren't going to be able to save her anyway. Enraged, you swing a fist at its bulbous head. It makes a wet smack as it makes contact, knocking the Martian to the floor. The wall opens once again as four armed creatures burst in, waving weapons and making one hell of a racket. A pair tackle you as you attempt to swing at not!Yetta again, the other pair helping their fellow Martian up and out of the cell.
>>19105950 The pair of armed Martians manage to pin you down as you struggle against them. They place a device on your chest and suddenly you find yourself unable to sit up. The Martians release their hold on you, retreating to the hole in the wall. As they're about to exit, the weight on your chest lifts and the device zooms back to a waiting tentacle. They turn to leave and the wall closes behind them.
rolled 2 = 2>>19105996 Coughing, you get back to your feet, adrenaline still racing through your system. You can hear Caulders struggling to breathe, and you rush back to her side. Again you attempt to heal her, blindly tossing magic in her direction. All you can tell is that she doesn't sound like she's getting worse, which could mean anything. For the next 15 minutes, you continue expelling your magic, reducing your reserves to almost nothing.
>>19106031Whats the roll for. Also lets see what these fucks want with us. (As if the Player doesnt already know.)
>>19105896Having suspension of disbelief issues with the 4 witches on a prototype sub with no escort using prototype equipment and sent into combat unassisted in a setting where they are each worth their weight in U235 bit, but you aren't a terrible writer so I'll stick with it for now.
>>19106031Like a true strikewitch, grope her forward fueltanks~
>>19106031 As you nearly run out, the wall opens again. A Martian enters, padding on its head where you hit it earlier. You turn to it, ready to attack again- You stop. There's something going on. You can still feel all your anger and contempt for this creature, but you can also feel a calm, a desire for peace and safety that wasn't there a moment ago. The Martian holds its tentacles up, mimicking a very human gesture. "W..what?" you ask the Martian, confused about what's going on. As you do, that feeling of calm shifts to hope, a desire for something...from you. You heard the rumors, the talk that the alien invaders had a trick much like magic up their sleeve. Could this be it? >They've already proven they're capable of deception. Don't let it near. >You've nothing to lose. Stand down. >Other
>We have nothing to lose.Besides. If we attack it now, we'll only get to kill one or maybe two of the fuckers. Let's wait until we can murder them all. Hell, maybe they'll start trusting~ us.And then we can use our magically enhanced strength to staple them all to a wall and go down the line ripping their tentacles out by the roots~.
>>19106077Read the backstory. Commaning officer of the sub sent Caulders and stupid Japanese witch out because stupid Japanese witch was all WE CAN TOTALLY TAKE EM WHAT ARE YOU A PUSSY YOU'RE NOT A PUSSY LET'S GOOOO.>>19106106Stand down, but stay near Caulders.
>>19106106Stand down, stay near Caulders.
>>19106138Them even being on the sub in the middle of the ocean in the first place is hard to buy.
>>19106106Stand down I guess.Call the martian disparaging names.
>>19106152The Humans are trying to solve the rampant Martian sub warfare problem. Its not THAT implausible.
>>19106152They were around Palau, actually, en route to Australia from Hawaii. Numerous detours were made as it dodged more typical routes the aliens occasionally check for ships and stopped for various tests.
>>19106152They were going to Australia for field testing.Seriously, read the backstory.
>>19106152Having prototypes be transported without escorts in submarine so that they can slip past patrols without the problem of trying to hide an escort has a lot of precedent during WW2.So, actually, you've got nothing.
>>19106207>The Japanese also requested materials from their German allies and 560 kg (1,200 lb) of unprocessed uranium oxide was dispatched to Japan in April 1945 aboard the submarine U-234, which however surrendered to US forces in the Atlantic following Germany's surrender.
>>19106169I read the backstory goofus.Submarines have a well documented tendency to disappear with all hands very often in wartime. When you have assets that are extremely valuable, you don't put them on a submarine. You put them on a surface combatant, with a bunch of other surface combatants protecting them, and a submarine or two following along for good measure.Serious failure in risk assessment on the part of the guys who decided against just dropping the subwitches off the side of a battleship with a crane.
>>19106231YesButMartiansFlying dreadnoughtsLASERS PYEW
>>19106207By the Axis, when they were desperate, maybe. But things the Axis did when they were desperate aren't exactly shining examples of strategic brilliance, are they?
>>19106241More survivable than a submarine, and much more likely for the mahou shoujos or whatever to be able to escape or get rescued from a torpedo'd battleship onna surface than a depth-charge'd sub inna thousand feet of water.
It's not like you've much of a choice. You're in a Martian cell, surrounded by Martians with guns, and nothing with which you might make an escape. Cautiously, you stand down and let the Martian approach. It leaves the safety of the door wall, stopping uncomfortably close to Caulders. You feel uneasy, but if they wanted Caulders, there'd be little you could do to stop them. It looks at you, gesturing with its tentacles. Confused, you try extending your hand to it, and you sense satisfaction from it. It gently wraps itself around your hand, the alien feeling of its skin making you flinch. Tugging your hand, it places it on Caulders' chest, where you had it just before you socked it with your fist. The Martian just stares at you, waiting.
>>19106275Its wants us to heal her? Sorry buddy, your a WEE bit late for that one.
>>19106275Punch the martian again.
>>19106275Continue pumping magic into Caulders. It probably just wants to see human magic in action up close.
>>19106275 Not seeing much else it could want you to do, you start directing the last of your magic into Caulders' body. Unlike before, however, there's an incredible clarity in your mind. With just a thought, magic is applied to Caulders' various vital organs, not a drop wasted. It's as if your desires are being translated into the physical actions needed to carry them out. What would have been an almost insignificant amount of magical healing has become enough to stabilize Caulders; her breathing is no longer ragged and her chest bobs up and down with deep breaths. Finished, you let out the breath you didn't realize you were holding and stare at the alien in wonder. What is it trying to do? Undoubtedly it wants to use you and Caulders to learn about humanity's greatest weapons, but it seems to be awfully...patient. Though you manage to keep your face still, you can't help but feel a bit of relief over Caulders and...even a tiny bit of gratitude. You've had enough witches dying today (is it still today?) and Caulders seems like she'll make it through the night. You feel nothing from the Martian anymore, and it races out of the room, probably hoping to avoid another punch.You lean back against the wall, nothing to do but be glad you won't be sharing the room with a corpse in the immediate future, but a nagging, horrific thought rises at the back of your head.How did it do that?
>>19106365Will magicking Caulders help with the plan to pull the bits off all of these martians?
>>19106382This is going to be interesting.
>>19106382Okay, these martians NEED to die. We cannot let them share what they're learning.Although, on the other hand, enslaving martians as magical focuses might be... interesting.
>>19106382>and it races out of the room, probably hoping to avoid another punch.Son of a bitch.We will show him. He will learn to take his punches.
>>19106382 For the next week, the alien comes in and out of your cell bearing things like beat-up, mix-and-matched cans of food, a bucket, and water. Caulders spends most of the time unconscious, only waking up once every couple of hours and even then for only 15 minutes or so. When she's awake, she moans in pain and you have to struggle to get her to eat and drink. She might not be in immediate danger of dying, but she needs serious medical attention from someone who actually understands the human body. It doesn't seem like you'll be leaving soon, however, and every minute you spend here is a minute the Martians have to examine you and Caulders. You need a gameplan.>Recover. You're not breaking out while Caulders is still injured.>Sabotage. Wherever you are, you're not going to get far. You need to eliminate what they've learned.>Escape. There's always hope.>Communicate. There's at least one Martian willing to come back after being punched.>Other
>>19106467I have to say recover. We NEED two witches for the escape.
>>19106467Recover. Chances of successfully sabotaging and destroying this Martian sub become dramatically more feasible if we have two Witches capable of combat, rather than just one.
>>19106467Recover. We can't leave Caulders behind (not alive, anyway), and we can't take her with us as she is.
>>19106467Sabatoge, we won't be able to fix Caulders quickly and the longer we're here the less likely they'll need to keep us alive. We need to buy time, if we eliminate what they've learned we remain valuable and can keep on healing her up.
>>19106467Recover.Continue punching martian. Sometimes don't punch him. Sometimes do it gently or even playfully. Then when he thinks he's established rapport, deck his shit with all the force we can muster.
>>19106467In order:>Recover. Caulders is all we have left. She is the ONLY person from our last command who probably isn't dead.>Communicate, knowledge is power.>Sabotage, (we NEED to purge what they're learning.Also, if we can communicate we can LIE.>Escape. Once we're ready, we GTFO with Caulders.
>>19106467 As much as you hate to admit it, alone you're pretty much incapable of doing anything in this cell. Hell, you're not even a full witch; the depression cut into your training at the academy. Caulders could probably finagle some witchcraft that you couldn't think of and do so efficiently. The problem is getting Caulders back up and running. You could get the Martian's help again, but who knows what they might learn from another mind-link magic session. On the other hand, it's not like they've got a human hospital set up anywhere. You settle with blindly pumping magic into her again, hoping she's recovered enough for it to have a lasting effect. Placing your hands on her chest again, you begin the process. In the academy, they'd teach all sorts of health magic; witches were supposed to help out in emergency medical situations when able. You went through a refresher course when you signed up with the Navy, but it's not like you knew the material in the first place. Blind healing is enough to fix up scratches, bruises, scabs, and the like with just a few seconds of healing, though, so keeping it up for a long time should work. You hope.
>>19106633 After a few minutes of concentration, Caulders wakes up again. She begins to yawn and stretch, but checks the movements as they're quickly followed by pain. "Sh-shi-shit! Ah, what's going on?" she manages. "You don't remember anything?" you ask. "Um...bits...and pieces? Some bad food...feels like I got hit by a truck...damn, this place is dark," she mumbles. Thinking this is enough for now, you stop healing. Immediately Caulders starts to fade again, her eyelids closing as she loses consciousness. You try to wake her back up, but even emptying yourself of magic doesn't bring her back up.
>>19106682Ok so now i gotta ask. What did the aliens do to our magics?
>>19106735Don't know. We may be able to find out if we punch them enough.
>>19106682 The next day, after Socks brings the food (you needed to call him something, and you did sock him good), you try again. This time you continue healing even after Caulders wakes up. "God dammit, did I fade out?" she asks. "Yeah, sorry. I'm doing my best here, but you've had a hell of a time and I'm not much of a medic." "You can say that again..." She looks at your hands on her chest, doing a very sloppy job of healing. "Try overlapping your hands in an X shape. Concentrate on enhancing the body's natural healing, not forcing it to regenerate," she advises. You rearrange your hands and continue, trying to follow her instructions.
>>19106789 "No no no, dammit Kukyendall. Don't you know anything about healing at all?" "No, sorry. I missed that part of class." Caulders rolls her eyes. "Here, let me." She places her hands on top of yours, and a familiar sensation takes hold. This time, however, the flow of the magic is completely out of your hands as Caulders guides it into her own body, letting its natural regeneration tap into a new source of energy. The two of you remain silent as she concentrates, eventually draining you of magic. With a sigh, she manages to sit up and lean back against a wall. "So. What the hell is going on?">We need to sabotage these aliens.>They're learning with our every move. We need to get out.>No clue. We should ask the Martian.>Other
>>19106789Oooh, we can learn things from this one. Eeeexcellent.
>>19106801>We need to get outGonna make a jaaaaaailbreak.
>>19106801>They're LEARNING. We need to get out.And murder them.
>>19106801We've been captured after the attack on their sub. I have no idea where we are. I can assume they are studying us and want us to be good subjects. Lets not. And escape while were at it.
>This questAre you fucking serious?
>>19106801>We need to sabotage these aliens.They want to use us as test subjects and learn how witches work. We are in a perfect place to FUCK THEM UP from the inside. We can do a lot of damage here and make sure the rest of the martians aren't able to use the data they've collected on us.
>>19106829Completely, my dear.
>>19106829>Strike Witches>Tank Witches>Sub WitchesNow we just need Space Witches: FUTUREQUEST and Ye Olde Witches.
>>19106801>They're learning with our every move. We need to get out.And on the way out, destroy anything and everything we can get our magically-enhanced hands on.
>>19106801>No clue. We should punch the Martian.
>>19106854I keep telling them we need Strike Witches: 1662.
>>19106829Dude's gotta justify his little girl snuff fiction somehow.
>>19106866On one hand, witches as pirates and with broomsticks and olde tymey cannons and costumes and stuff.On the other hand, uhhmm
>>19106801 "Well, as you can see, we're no on the Tullibee anymore. I got knocked out during the attack, some sort of horrible noise hit me. Shut up, it's not funny." Caulders stops giggling. "Hah, done in by a sound. Was it scary?" "Oh? And what happened to you?" you counter, trying to save some face. "Well, I...um...flew into an invisible wall." It's your turn to start laughing. "What? I said it was invisible!" "Yeah, well, it seems to have left you in a pretty bad way. You were nearly gone when I came to in here, and you've been passing in and out of consciousness for about a week." "A week? In this dump?" She gestures at the room, especially at the bucket you've been...using. "Why'd you have to go and wake me up? This isn't exactly an experience I want to remember." "Because we've got to get out." "Come again?">Try to trick Socks and escape>Caulders has to have some magic tricks up her sleeve>Bust past the guards next time the wall opens>Other
>>19106866Fuck that; CONQUISTADORWITCHES. Let's kill some Aztecs!
>>19106970Bust past the guards when the wall opens next.Fortune favors the bold.
>>19107003>Fortune favors the bold.
>>19107001Oh that could be BRUTAL. Because you know the Aztecs had witches too. And if they were build into the whole "human sacrifice bit..."
>>19106970>Caulders has to have some magic tricks up her sleeveIt's time for her to show what an Academy-trained Witch is capable of.Or to shut up and get off her high horse.
>>19107024I'd read Blood Witches
>>19107018Its better than being stuck here and going insane while trying to trick our way out.
No, you aren't thinking meta enough, we need african warlord witches.
>>19107115Isn't that a modernish kind of thing?Personally I want to see Gladiator Witches.
>>19107115I want some kind of armored tracked witches quest.....
>>19106970"What you like it in here, Caulders?" "I've been up 5 minutes and I'm already hating it." "Then let's try and break out. Staying here only helps the Martians figure out how to beat us." "And how do you propose we do that? Ask nicely?" "Hey, you're the academy witch. Surely you learned something that could help. Right?" You serious right up as she averts your gaze. "...You did, right?" "I...didn't do so well in school." Great. She's all talk. "That's more than what I did. Come on, you learned how to heal, right? You had to learn something." "Oh sure, I learned lots of great tricks for a situation like this. How many do you think I remember?" Is she really going to make you do everything for her? You sigh. "Something. Anything. God dammit Caulders, this isn't a game." "Fine." She shuts up and starts thinking, trying to remember anything that could help. She makes a few motions with her hand, sparking off a few little pops and flashes here and there as she tries out a few things. The obvious show of magic makes you feel nervous.
>>19107194 "Can you try not to be so flashy as you think? They're probably watching us," you say. "Shut up! It's the only way I can think things through!" she says, continuing. Her little shows are toned down, but continue. After quite some time (Socks came in with another meal, much to your worry, before walking back out as if Caulders were just counting on her hands), Caulders jumped up. "I've got it!" "Got what?" "How to get out! We'll just walk out!" "Are you kidding me?" If that's all it took, you would have done it ages ago. "Well, if we use our shields and smash them up against the walls, they can't stop us, right?" "This is your magical plan?" "Hey, I don't see you coming up with any better." "Fine. We slam them with defensive magic they've seen a million times before. Then what?">Then what?>Make a break for anything that might lead outside>Take a hostage>Other
>>19107194>She's all talkFucking officers.
>>19107211>Make a breakAliums probably don't care too much about hostages seeing how they treat prisoners.Socks might be important to them as a physic kind of fella, but that may also make him tough to hang on to.
>>19107211Make a break for anything leading outside, destroying as much equipment as we can along the way.We need to try to sabotage as much Martian equipment, and the research they did on us, as we can.
>>19107211[x]otherI doubt we could keep a multi-limbed being hostage very long. Also their weapons are psi-locked.What we need to do is find a way to a room full of shiny buttons and dials, and start smashing shit. If there's any particularly large buttons, press them. Then smash them.
>>19107211 "...I don't know. You're the brains here." Unfortunately, that couldn't be more true. "First priority is getting our asses out of here. I don't think I can overstate our importance to the war effort, strikers or not. Almost as important, however, is destroying anything they recorded about ourselves or our magic." "You mean we're not getting straight out of here?" Caulders asked. "Right. We find any thing with our pictures on it, the word 'MAGIC', or a bunch of shiny buttons and dials, we wreck it." Caulders brightened at that last comment. "They'll be hot on our heels, though, Kukyendall. How are we going to hold them off?" "Keep running and hope they don't have guns." Caulders groans at your answer. The two of you settle on down, waiting for the next time the wall opens to begin.
>>19107368 Socks doesn't come back for the rest of the day. Resigned to a jailbreak tomorrow (probably a good idea, seeing as you're low on magic), you settle down on the thin cushion serving as a mattress on your bench, plunging into a deep sleep. You have another dream, this time of Lt. Harumi Ogawa. The two of you didn't get along well, and part of you is glad she wasn't in the cell with you and Caulders. "Lt. Ogawa, are you just going to sit around all day?" you ask, annoyed. Ogawa'd been doing her best to do absolutely nothing to help you and the rest of the crew load up the test equipment. Technically that was well within her rights as an officer of a foreign service and a test witch, but she kept finding ways to distract or impede you as you scurried through the Tullibee.
>>19107462Well guess who is laughing now, dead dream bitch!No one.
>>19107462 "I'm hardly sitting, Chief. In fact, I'm on my way to get some food. I don't suppose the chefs have any rice?" she says cockily, as if you doing work offended her. "I don't know, you'd have to ask," you answer, struggling to get a crate past her. "Well, you keep up the hard work." She saunters off, making an effort to not be putting in any effort. Her actions infuriate you. Cursing, you continue heading down to the Ambient Pressurization Chamber, nearly running over Sub-Lieutenant Falkowska. "Oh, sorry, Chief Kukyendall!" she says, quickly scooting out of your path. Yes, Lt. Ogawa was a most infuriating character. Even so, you feel a tinge of guilt for thinking ill of her. Not only was she a comrade in arms, she might not even be around to defend herself any longer. You shift in your "bed," searching for a more comfortable position. Tomorrow is the day you get out.Or die trying.Next time on Submersible Witches: Jailbreak. Expect it around Wednesday, same time, same place. Thanks for sticking with it, I promise more shit will go down then. If you won't be joining us, then I apologize for wasting your time.
>>19107553>more YettaYou have a blackened, cruel heart Kotters.
Pretty good so far, if a bit short. Looking forward to next week.I bet Caulders will die.
>>19107581I'm just trying to fix the problem I had rushing the original story. I'm fleshing out the others, because they're still a relevant part of the quest...who know what I might use them for?
>>19107594knows, rather. My keyboard died and this new one seems to be a bit iffy.>>19107585Yes, I'll try and make the next session longer. You'll certainly be seeing more than just a cell.And you guys nearly had Caulders die here. That roll was to see if Socks would bother coming back into a room with an angry witch.
>>19107594Well you've pretty much limited your options to nightmares and 'lol martians ate your dead friends enjoy your double nightmares'
>>19107594I thoroughly enjoyed it Kotters. It was a real break for the usual SWQ stuff we get, as i told you on Saturday. Also you are a really good writer and im enjoying the story so far.
>>19107613We should punch him again out of gratitude.
>>19107637>Also you are a really good writer and im enjoying the story so far.You flatter me. I can always do better, and I'm not exactly the best right now.>>19107638Are you Cyclops or what?>>19107628Well, the real-life Kukyendall apparently suffered from survivor's guilt, so that's actually appropriate.
Don't be discouraged by the hate Kotters. All the SW quests (and MSQ a bit) have pretty much handed victory and survival to the players. Consequences will make the players think their actions through, and become less susceptible to Big Red Button syndrome. I hope.
>>19107722I don't see any haters.Yet.
>>19107722I am not going to stop suggesting we punch a martian at every decision point until we run out of martians to punch.
>>19107677You're better than Panzer was when he started.Course he didn't bother with a mighty long backstory, that probably helped a bit.Also, I have a feeling we'll be seeing a sidestory of Yetta with the horrors of the deep. HINT HINT WRITEFAGS.
>>19107722>SWQ>Logical thinkingPick one. Cuz most of the writers and GMs on this project have been unable to avoid it as of yet.
>>19107780I hate this.I was enthused when MC had that revelation that he wanted to live.But the players can't avoid CHOICES THAT ARE IN CAPS or the choices that offer immediate reward for later consequence.And they're only excuse is "pilot" like that explains everything. It's like they're burning down their house so that they can watch the fire. Only since it's an online quest they won't get burned. I get so butthurt about it, I can't even believe it.
>>19107811>Getting butthurt over a questYou realize you can always stop reading the quest, right? Or come up with your own story? It's not like any quest thread is a major million dollar project with canon of any weight.I do agree with people going after the most ridiculous choices. Planefag writes them quite well.
>>19107842And thats what makes PF such an amazing GM. All of the retarded shit thrown his way and he takes it on the shoulders like it was nothing. I just wish he wasnt addicted to bitch-tears so much.
>>19107862Would be neat to see some more serious choices once in awhile. Still, it's not like SWQ is currently known for being a serious military quest.
>>19107811Are you me?
>>19107882No, I think he's Someone else.
>>19107811I hate that irc circlejerking tripfags have more influence over the decisions than the anons who just want to have fun.>>19107882Like you. Fuck you.
>>19105347 Public Service announcement: You should know that the suptg archive might not catch your thread. if you have 4chanx, you should be able to catch the foolz archive of it when it 404s. Just thought you should know. The code switch fucked around with the script.
>>19107913Bro-tip, chief. Planefag ignores PMs from IRC users for votes. The only thing he does with us on the IRC is give his stamp of approval on spin-offs.
>>19107913I'm not a "circlejerking tripfag"I have more fun with a serious story and plot+character development than with a lighthearted story where you can act on whim and expect no consequence.
>>19107763Ironically, Kotters helped me greatly after I started my quest, he assisted by helping me correct grammatical errors and the like. Him also having alot of story right out of the gate also helped him, where I only had my timeline done till about 1939
>>19107913He rarely if ever interacts in the IRC during quests, and if IRCers had more influence, we wouldn't have fucked Cupcake. The butthurt was palpable.>>19108029I don't think that's what Ironic means. And yeah, I was hounding Panzer a bit at the start. To be honest, I don't follow TWQ, but I certainly do look for summaries.Especially after that link to SWQ. Holy fucking shit.
Ah, the eternal war between the characterfags and the actionfags. Truly a battle for the ages.Although the actionfags do seem to come out on top more often than not.
>>19107964That explains the 5 or so tripfags crawling out of the woodwork last session and going all LETS BE HYPOCRITES, THAT'LL END WELL!But I'm not bitter. At least now we can manoeuvre Minna into being mad at random people until she calms down.>>19108059It's ironic because I called his writing shit while praising you, and you're the one who made him better.
How do you guys feel about image macros with posts? Should I go find a bunch of naval image macros or do you think the posts are fine and recognizable without?
>>19108132They certainly don't hurt.
>>19108132If you're looking for a way to make your posts stand out, use the 'subject' line. No one else does. A couple of nonsense symbols or something. But in quests, sure. Especially if you want to emphasize something, point something out, etc
>>19108132I find it's better to have a semi-related image then not, gives your posts a bit more "appeal" if you will. I just recently re-restocked my stores with pantless tank warriors~
>>19108132Personally, I find they make the questrunners posts stand out more.
>>19108138>>19108141>>19108142>>19108148I don't suppose any of you have a hidden stash of naval macros, huh?
I could use related images for MY posts, but as I write fapfiction, that might not be a good idea.
>>19108152No, but if you have a few and go over to /k/ you may be able to start a dump.
>>19108163Just don't say why."Yo, I'm writing a story based on a setting from Strike Witches and I'd really like some help!"
>>19108110>LET'S BE HYPOCRITESOur fucking cupcake doesn't change the fact that Minna screwing her was a selfish and impulsive thing for her to do. Two wrongs don't make a right.
>>19108159>fapfictionOH RIGHT>>>/d/4105270JET PORN? JET PORN. Sadly the first two threads are gone and chanarchive seems to be fucked and I don't know of anything else that archives /d/.
>>19108207It was reposted and possibly archived on /k/
>>19108202Therefore everyone should get mad at each other because ircfags think that is how adults resolve their problems.
>>19108176Are you kidding? /k/ eats that shit up. They love Strike Witches.
>>19108241Color me surprised.
>>19108241Currently they love Upotte!
>>19108152Yeah, sorry, just regular pictures.Though I've got a couple of old mechamusume ones of battleships, but you probably don't want those except to show who's going to die next.
>>19108241>>19108176And I'm fairly sure they like SWQ as well. Something about all the dogfights we get into.
>>19108223The image dump or the sexy, sexy words?
>>19108240At a certain point, it becomes a bit illogical for a person not to get mad about certain things. Being cheated on is one of them.Although MC, and Minna too I suspect, are really just mad at themselves.
>>19108268teen girls, people who DO know about guns and somewhat realistic firefigths, what's not to love?congratulations on your first quest thread kotters, you've grown into a beautiful person rigth before my eyes,( ;_;)
>>19108429/golfclapYeah kotters, I liked it, but thats like saying "HEY MOM! I GOT HERPES!"Closest I have to a seawitch in my SW image folder
proposed archival tags:strike witches, navy, submarines, WWII, Collective Game, Submersible Witches Quest, SubWQ, Kotters,if no one else archives it by 2am central I'll use these, ok?
>>19108577Tags look good, should do it now incase lol404
Thanks guys. Hope the next thread will be decent.
>>19108627so...what do I put as a quote mr bruja acorazada? "it's a beautiful morning in the Tullibee, you've been helping Yetta load crates and get ready to test these new flanged substrikers, only you cannot shake the feeling Yetta shouldn't be here"something that doesn't give away the whole thread like this?>>19108663fuck decency, your next thread better kick ass, you can pull it off
>>19108722>fuck decency, your next thread better kick ass, you can pull it offHigh expectations tempt me to exceed them, but I'm still a realist.
>>19108722Waking up in an alien prison, CPO Kukyendall has an unexpected and unnerving guest.
>>19108722>quoteI'd go with "You are CPO Cleona Wilhelmina Kukyendall, and you are having a pleasant dream."
>>19108730if you just aim for "decent" you'll just suck ball though, aim for panty-melting fuckawesome and you'll be good wherever you eventually end upend up>>19108755>>19108749sanity check failed? fucking licorice forgot to update to the new HTML/CSS code
Archive still not working I take it? Oh well, this is why we have foolz.
>>19111414Don't expect the archive to work any time soon.
