>>20171050Okay, I'll bite. Why are you angry?Wedding go badly? Lost money at Vegas? Mooch?
AWWW YEAH AC QUEST TIMELet's roll!

>>20171133>Or ten minutes, since apparently I need to go feed someone else's fucking animals.
>>20171133Well shit man, just... Shit.On a slightly related note, all that bad luck probably means that you'll roll nothing but ones for enemies.
>>20171153Fuck em!Though I probably should have fed my brother's cats before I left on this walk
>>20171133Man, I'm sorry.So much shit happens to you, yet you still try to continue this regularly.Ac-guy, I salute you.
>>20171158>On the one hand, it would mean not getting to run AC-Quest.>On the other, it means not having to run AC-Quest.>I think after we finish up this arc , I'm gonna run something lighter/sillier in the chapter two/three break.
>>20171316You can do it, AC-Guy. I believe in you.
YOU ARE ALEX RASTON.Currently most of your team is out of commission because Legion is trying to destroy their minds by hypnotizing them and making them live their worst fears and deepest darkness.Doing so has put him squarely at the top of your shit list, as you call out to Elsie, your squad's sniper. Also your girlfriend, and you aren't sure which role she plays in your life makes her pain harder for you to bear."Alex? Thank god." She says "I just got a call... my Dad...." She starts to cry again as you listen, trying to find a way to get her to snap out of it.>What say?
>>20171405I can't recall, how did her dad die?
>>20171405"Elsie, listen to me. He's trying to get into your head; the fucker that calls himself Legion and let those Black Rock fucks into Vegas, is making you relive your worst nightmares. You gotta snap out of it."
Comfort her as best we can, don't say anything. Let her talk.
>>20171405Elsie, get it together. I know it hurts, but I need you with me right now. I need you to be strong for me Elsie. What you're hearing isn't real, come back to me so we can kill the person who is doing this.
>>20171428>Military service. Well, militia.>Elsie was never told the details, and you found out later that the reason for that was because.... well it was pretty bad. Messy and horribly painful.
Time for AC Quest!>>20171458Going to go with this.
>>20171405Hell with it."I know, Elsie. I know, and now I need you to listen to me: this already happened. We're in Vegas, and the asshole responsible for what happened at Hope is here in front of us. He's probably responsible for a lot of other people's misfortune, too. But right now, I need you here. And… I love you."
>>20171515Huh, after i posted i knew someone was going to pull the i love you card.>>20171460Changing my vote- I love you always works.
>>20171515I gotta go with Udz on this one.
>>20171533It's not just good melodrama, it's also a time reference.
>>20171515Love always wins. Or at least that's what they told me. I go for this
rolled 76 = 76>>20171515She's silent for a long moment."Wait, wha-" You can hear her shaking her head as if confused. "I-"
rolled 21 = 21>>20171844I suspect that could have been a better roll.
>>20171844"Alex?" She says after a moment. "I don't know what's going on. This feels wrong...""That's because it isn't real.""I... I think I knew that. I... You love me?" She asks, almost hopeful. "That seems... right. I think... I think I'm starting to remember. Remember everything....." she says, her voice slightly dreamy."You alright?""I... think so?"[ ] Good, because I need to see how Laurie's doing.[ ] It'll be alright, I'm right here.
>>20171945[X] It'll be alright, I'm right here.She doesn't look all there yet, keep her talking a little bit longer see if we can get to to fully snap out of it.

rolled 8 = 8>>20171945Damnit. I'm torn. Gonna let the dice decide. High, check on Laurie, low reassure Elsie
>>20171945>[x] It'll be alright, I'm right here.She's not out of the woods yet, and I'll be DAMNED before I let us not be there for the woman we love when she just had her mind thoroughly violated.
>>20171966>>20171971>>20171979What the hell happened to the whole 'We've been ignoring Lawrence too much in favor of Elsie, best friend needs us sometimes?' thing we had going?Isn't Laurie currently being man-raped in his mind right now? By Blast 'Fucking Fraide' Hardcheese?
rolled 26 = 26I am legitimately worried about Laurie, though, based on the snippet we got of his. Does Alex have any knowledge about what Laurie's nightmare could be?
>>20171945[x] Good, because I need to see how Laurie's doing.We've got to get as many of the team broken out of the dream as quickly as possible. We'll work on making them able to fight once they're all out.
>>20172008There's also the possibility that going to Laurie can make everything we just did for Elsie pointless.Their all being mind-raped, judging how they react is hard.
>>20172008Well right now, If we let this go, she wont come out of it. Immediately go after laurie next. Also, we don't know hes being man-raped.
>>20171945gotta help laurie
>>20172008Look at my name. Look at how I phrased my comment with my vote. I believe you now understand my reasoning.But in all seriousness, we can't be sure she's out of it just yet. We have to be certain. If she falls back under when we go to check on Laurie we just wasted the time we spent here trying to pull Elsie out.
[X] It'll be alright, I'm right here.We gotta be sure otherwise it's all for naught.
>So....>Which way swings the vote?
rolled 92 = 92>>20172264There's like 2 votes for Laurie, and many more for Elsie.
>>20172298Tossing another vote towards Elsie before I go get food.
>>20172355That was me, not someone voting twice by the way, not that it matters with how many votes Elsie has.
"It'll be alright, I'm right here.""A-alright. Thanks Alex." She says, and a few moments later her core starts to power back up. "Those weird looking MTs are about to enter effective range for my gun. I'm taking up a better sniping position." Her voice has entered the deadly calm that she gets in real combat, so you know she's good to roll.With her and Ari both back, it's time to....[ ] Check on Laurie.[ ] See if Mooch is up.[ ] Try wake up Dave again.

This isn't real?" He sounds woozy."No. Now come on, we need you.""I... I'll try...."You can hear Ari charging her gun, and a pair of sharp cracks as Elsie shoots at the approaching horde.You probably only have time for one more try....[ ] Stick with Laurie, make damn sure he gets up.[ ] Go help Dave, you never got anything from him.[ ] Go check on Mooch, he seems the best suited for this kind of engagement.

>>20172718I'm going for Laurie. I have a feeling he's probably one of the two most vulnerable right now. I hate to make this choice, but two fully cognizant soldiers is better than one awake and two at minimal capacity.
>>20172744We stuck around for the dedicated love interest, because it's the minimum to keep the waifu fags happy.That said, I'm glad we fell into that one early so it isn't some thing we have to worry about for like a million threads.

After having a minute to try and work them over, Elsie's taken out a few, but there's still more to come.Then Ari's gun goes off, and that part of the world turns white....

>>20173238That's okay, it's not like we're gonna see anything that awesome ever again. We may as well die on a high note.
>>20173217You're right, there are two crit threats in there.
>>20173189>>20173135You knew well enough to close your eyes when you saw the second sun appear.You now get to see the damage your sister just wrought. There's a solid line from where Ari's shot fired all the way to slightly past where it hit the enemy line where's there's a wicked scar of glass deep into the sand, with scorched marks on the sides of the nearby buildings and parts of the pavement actually smouldering and burning in some places.The blast was massively destructive, killing almost a third of the oncoming force and wounding a chunk of the rest, some clearly beyond hope as they stagger and die on the move in.She's cut the effective ability of the horde in half, easily."Holy shit." Laurie comments. "Dave's gonna be pissed that he missed that. Can you do that again?""In about fifteen minutes, maybe. It needs time to cool off, and then charge again."No time for that then, they're getting too close to try.[ ] Charge out to meet them.[ ] Let them come to you, line up shots.
>>20173310>[ ] Charge out to meet them.Let's go big. If ever there's a time to be a big damn hero, defending Vegas sounds like a good one.
>>20173310We have guns, so we might as well use them.
>>20173310>[x] Let them come to you, line up shots.We are not a Super Robot protagonist. We are a Real Robot protagonist. We will fight tactically. For now anyway.
>>20173334Fuck it this. I was going to say line up shots but this all the way.
>>20173310[X] Let them come to you, line up shots.Lets pick these guys off while our team can get their stuff together. besides, Mts are slow.
>>20173310Line up shots. We have guns. Let's use them for once.
>>20173310[x] Shoot themOperator this, not punch it. Punching leads to death, since we're not Dervish. Maybe we can be the Dervish of guns, with abilities to take snap shots if we kill something or shit like that later.
>>20173291>>20173217>Sorry, my bad. It wouldn't have made too big a difference though, since pretty much everyone hit was gibbed.>>20173264>Yay, crunch!>Basically, Ari has an Over-Weapon, which is a huge fucking gun that does massive damage.>She spent effectively six combat rounds charging it, drastically multiplying the base damage output. Then she took an extra action to aim at the last second, which due to feats cuts about a third off her threshold.>So she took a fuck-off powerful gun in just about the ideal situation to use it, and then multiplied it's effectiveness by thinking tactically.>After all, the line of thought that leads to 'There's no kill like over-kill' is clearly inherited by her big brother, current world record holder in the 'nuclear surfing' category.
>>20173310[x] Let them come to you, line up shots.There's no reason to get into CQC if picking them off with guns is just as viable.

>>20173381>current world record holder in the 'nuclear surfing' category.Can we get that on, like, a Core bumper sticker or something?I mean, yes, it was a tragedy what happened to Hope. But still.And if we survive this, can we start going out and hunting down Black Rock cultists? They've got the resources to get MT's; I want to hunt them down and stake them out in the desert for the vultures to eat.
>>20173448Well, we've unlocked the magical ability of hate now, so if we get some down time, we could attempt.Although making sure the team is fine, the Hope Survivors are fine, and etc first to do though.

>>20189566>>20189572>So since it's too damn late to make any real progress in the actual quest, let's talk aspects.>Aspects, for those who don't understand them are basically a trait or a belief that can be evoked for an effect.>Aspects are something of a double edged sword by their very nature, since someone can invoke someone else's aspects, if they know what they are.>For instance, somebody could have the aspect 'World's greatest swordsman'. This would be something they could invoke to give a bonus in combat situations, or in some instances instantly ace a test related to wielding a sword.>However it would also mean they have a reputation as a talented swordsman, and would have to deal with people constantly demanding duels to try and prove they're the better warrior or something.>I'm basically giving Alex one right now for you guys to pick. Based on choices made between now and the chapters end, you'll get another one that reflects Alex as a character.
>>20189626>have to deal with people constantly demanding duels to try and prove they're the better warrior or something.So it'd be like having the Number 2 headband?
>>20189679>I... guess?>I feel like I'm missing the reference.
>>20189626All I can think of is, "Mama Bear," protecting and seeing to the needs of those important to us.And I am balls tired, so I'm going to bed.G'night, AC-Quest
>>20189706Afro Samurai.Possible Aspects "Big Damn Hero", "Surfing the Nuke", "Give Me Your Face".
>>20189706Afro Samurai. Basically, there are two headbands. The Number One headband pretty much makes you a god. The Number Two headband gives you the right to challenge the guy who has the Number One headband. Nobody who doesn't have the Number Two headband can challenge the guy with the Number One headband. So the guy with the Number Two headband has to deal with EVERYONE wanting to kill him and take his headband so they can challenge the guy with the Number One headband for the chance to be a god.
>>20189732Surfing the Nuke sounds amusing, but I'm not sure how that would work. Bonus to Crazy Ivan tactics?
>Feel free to debate this and discuss it until you've decided. I have to go to bed, since it's one A.M. here and I need to be up in like four hours.
>>20189775That could work. We're compelled to take Crazy Ivan actions, but we do that anyways, placing our life in danger, that sort of thing.We get a bonus to unusual tactics, especially those that operate best when they're not expected, things involving large amounts of explosives and surviving in improbable circumstances.
>>20189855>>201897752am find ac quest placing a vote for surfing the nuke, goodnight /tg/,im just going to leave this here
>>20189855Right, but we we're at our best doing Crazy Ivan tactics to save an ally. Going by the sheet, that is, and if we get Riding the Nuke.Being compelled to take Crazy Ivan methods over usual just sounds like a win to me. A very risky, unnecessary danger win, but a win all the same.
>>20189732voting for Surfing the nuke/ radiation rodeo/ Crazy Ivan.we usually get put in situations where the best way out would be the weirdest possible choice.either that, or we just like insane tactics.
>>20189855I like this idea. The other edge of the sword so to speak being that these are normally the most dangerous tactics we could choose to take.
maybe the drawback could be that you would inspire people to be like you and they end up failing horribly.ari for example could try and be like alex and wind up dieing trying to pull off something tricky
>>20189922We should just call it Crazy Ivan>>20189950>>20189950And I like this, but... I dunno, the consequences of failing a Crazy Ivan are generally penalising enough.Maybe we should just make it an "amplifier", higher reward to higher risks.
Augh, I was thinking of suggesting a "Rage Through the Pain." Aspect, where Alex rapes more face the more backed into a corner and fucked up he is. Since he always seems to get injured and Pushed into horrible situations, and then Turn around and tear peoples faces off anyway.But it looks like theres already a consensus
>Let's take an aspect about how we do crazy shit>(Almost) Never do crazy shit outside of the sims>Okay.Y'know, what, sure. Let's do it. Then maybe we will.
I'm not even sure why I'm bumping this now.
