Last time, young Omar learned more of his power of invocation, the aspect of Quickening!By focusing on haste while drawing in energy, he can speed up all aspects of himself!During training in the warm-up chamber, he became frustrated with being unable to strike the targets hard enough, and with the heat exceeding 35C, he miraculously invoked the legend of the phoenix, donning a a winged form of flame!His ensuing rampage in the chamber damaged the equipment and soon enough, he brought the heat up to the point of meltdown!However his time and energy spent in the form left him too weak, he felt the form slipping in his self-made inferno. Trapped in the room, he nearly resigned himself to this fate until Fauna entered and dragged him out in containment.Waking up in a hospital-bed, he learns of Fauna's past after getting chewed out for recklessness!Wallie and Kill enter his bedside and inform him that all of the Overs are on lockdown until further notice, and that Omar's been ranked an A, with consideration of S. However he may be too dangerous for them to keep...Last thread can be found here! Session 4: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22742845/ Recap of 1-3: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22737959/Let us see how this situation unravels!
>>22780116We phoenix now
Though it's nice to see these guys, and they're bros for chucking up on me, I want to see Fauna... I don't know... her tragedy.. and mine.. They're similar and yet not... I feel like I get it though..."Look guys, I..." Beginning to rise from bed, Kill puts a hand to my chest and I see his marks flash as he pushes me down."Kid, I'm sorry, but if you were look'n to leave, we can't let you do that right now. We're trading shifts with Fauna." Wallie light a cigarrette and takes a drag."You went far beyond any expectations that they had for newbies. Typically newbies get strong or die... but this... What you pulled off in there landed you right in Danger class A. We're here to watch you until they figure something out..."My heart drops, as I realize why Fauna had chastised me earlier," I.. What?""You heard me right kid. You're on lockdown, and quite frankly, you've got the wrest of us on lock too. You melted, and burned a chamber made of Tungsten alloy that can take up to 3000 C. They're actually considering putting you in S class based on that. Benefactor's interest and all, you might be too dangerous for them to keep. . .Out of the Oven and into the goddamn fryer... God damnit...>A) Force way out of bed, I need to see Fauna!>B) Lay in bed quietly, go to sleep and wait for judgement.>C) Ask Wallie and Kill Questions(State what)>D) Ask to see someone (Violet, Lock, Eliza...)>E) Threaten them.>F) Other

>>22780199C. Ask them why he was forced back from the door, to his potential death.
>>22780344Cause we coulda killed other people I assumeAlso ask if anyone else got hurt
>>22780220>black, gold tipsThat'll get the women hot keen, don't you think?And fauns ARE closely related to Satyrs... and we all know what Satyrs are..
>>22780379She looks like that through absorbing the demonic image her parents had of her. and the name "Fauna" means animal life.
>>22780402I'm not going to even try to turn this into a sexual adventure, so I'm sorry ahaha.>>22780373'cause Omar is still quite innocent, right? I mean for someone who saw their mother get killed infront of them and such.So if he shows he's still a compassionate kid, they'll realise he's no real danger unless you piss him the fuck off/endanger his mates, right?
For now, I resign myself to the bed, I slowly rub my temples, I've got a headache, and the constant burning sensation in my fingers and toes doesn't help much..."Ok, I just need to know, why was I forced away from the door? Was anyone else hurt?"Wallie's the one that answers," Kid, you were forced from the door to contain the situation. If you'd gotten out people could've gotten hurt, and none were because of Violet. I was there to keep the heat the heat in during retrieval. You already know, but Fauna's the one that put you out. Funny thing though, after she threw you out, she stayed in there until someone threw a blanket in... Guess we still don't know that bitch's face.." Wallie takes a long drag on his cigarette."I heard you got big pay out for makin' that leap though kid, as dangerous as it was. You should check the catalog if there's any shit you want. Weapons and totems are off limits for now, but clothes and other things are fine."Looking around now, I see that despite being a hospital bed, there are no nurses or doctors, in fact, it seems that this may still be inside of the facility.>A) Insist on going out.>B) Check the Catalog for goodies.>C) Ask more questions (State what)>D) Ask for someone>E) Go to sleep/wait>F) Other
>>22780550B, we need some new clothes!
>>22780566Seconded. Buy tuxedo fuck bitches
>>22780589Has to be a flame retardant one, though.And it has to make our black/gold hair look beautiful even in the dimmest light.
>Welcome, Omar Denis... >Ordering from the Renaissance catalog...>Enter Search: . . .>Browse list...>A) Armaments(Locked)>B) Totems(Locked)>C) Creature Comforts>D) Clothing>As you are currently hospitalized, you may also order from the Cafeteria.>E) Cuisine >Renaissance can supply virtually anything through their benefactors.
>>22780661D, and ask for a fashionista or someone that can help design clothes for him.
>>22780692D-fire resistant tier
>Opening Clothing Menu...>Omar Denis, As per current assessment of your magic, all clothing will be marked up due to fire-retardant material.>Welcome to Renaissance Fashion! We have the latest and greatest Tailor-made selection for our wonderful employees!>A) Shirts>B) Pants>C) Shoes>D) Clothing Set>E) Enter Search ( . . . )
>>22780817D-We need a set
>>22780817I really like the renaissance/medieval fashion, but it's not really good to wear unless everyone else is wearing it, so goin' with >>22780825
>>22780880Ya lets just wear medieval shit in modern times. We totally wont look like faggots
>Opening Clothing Sets . . .>Omar Denis, our fashionistas recommend these brilliant design options!>A) Roc Native American Tribal set>B) Traditional Chinese Phoenix Martial Set>C) Punk rock Thunderbird set>D) Green Adventurer Set>E) Cyberpunk Firebird Set>F) Enter Search>G) Search ThemeGeeze, with these selections, I think I know where Violet got her clothes...
>Clothing sets are all 500,000 each.>Clothing Sets come with three different outfits.>Clothing sets will be replaced upon damage or destruction.
>>22780919HEY HEY, FUCK YOU.I MEANT LIKE THE REAL SUITS AND ACTUAL FUCKING GREAT CLOTHES, OKAY. >>22780928What does the Green Adventurer Set look like?
>>22780928Can we just get some normal clothes? Like a hoodie with cargo shorts or some shit
>>22781005That'd be search query/theme.Searching theme for Modern?
I should've thrown Wizard in there too...
>>22781015Do you have an example of what they all look like?
Search theme 90's alternative.We grunge now?
>>22781040Not all, though I can give a good description.
>>22781068As long as we're not Glam/Hipster, I'm pretty sweet.>>22781089I think we need something inconspicious, one that doesn't show WERE A GIANT FUCKING PHOENIX.
>>22781106Fashionistas be sad...One moment, I'll get some set examples for the 90's search.
>>22780928>B) Traditional Chinese Phoenix Martial Setlets gt some weed and a huge meal like 3x Chinese food tones of those crab ragoons get some beer magic hat #9
>>22781170Weed is not allowed to Overhumans in Renaissance.Dangerous things happen.
>>22781170Good to see you again!
>>22781179So drugs tamper with powers?Is the interaction with drugs and Powers solely negative, or can it be positive?
>>22781179What about meth
>>22781210The powers are controlled by the conscious and subconscious mind.Drugs that affect the conscious mind yield unpredictable results.However, as a rule. Depressants tend to hamper magic, yet reduce the overall toll.Accelerants (forgot the exact word for things like Nicotine) make them more effective, yet increases the toll.Wallie's smoking right now because he can't quit and he doesn't care.
>>22781195thanks just got off work long day of smacking kids around (fuck yea sparing god I love teaching older kids karate )and moping floors wiping down booths and cleaning tubes (tattoos are cool)I Love working two jobs it totally doesn't take all my time so beer is ok?also lets get a 3 Ds and the latest Pokemon game all fire type trainer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjE_2fFMnG0&t=2m23sThe clothes of the guy in that time-slot are available....
>>22781303Is APic in this one is B
Any of these suits are D...
And Wallie wears this.
>>22781317>>22781307NOJust fucking get modern normal shit.Like a fucking Hoodie that we always keep up and cargo pants. Maybe a bandana around our faces or a shermagh
>>22781286Wallie orders drinks too..Alcohol is typically fine, however the "tap" is limited... especially for invokers that can rampage while barely conscious.
>>22781349Nice that you're thinking about the fullbody mark...
>>22781350juts 2 we have self control
>>22781384Omar's mark went fullbody. It's on his back, legs, arms, and even coming up a bit onto his face.
>>22781349Should I go with this?
>>22781397We are in the desert right?Can we go for that undercover CIA look?without the guns though
>>22781365we can just get that body suit Fauna! got
>>22781432'course. Renaissance's Catalog will deliver,
>>22781448That's the Exo-tec suit in Armaments. Armaments are currently locked.
>>22781460i meant latter also we got it flout it when on base ;)next time Fauna! bitches at us for not concealing power level in her face laugh say we are
>>22781498Alright fuck it, just shut the catalog for now, we can come back to it later.
>Cancel Catalog"Man, there are some freaking weird clothes in this catalog, how'd you guys get such normal clothes?"Wallie, laughs a bit, smoke escaping his mouth," Man, kid... We came in with these clothes. Personally, I choose to wear a scarf when on a mission to cover up my mark. But here at base I just lounge it up in my civilian clothes. I like this so much I ordered a few sets. Kill here, he's got a top for every day of the week! But he takes a military jacket for the field to cover his spots. Best t' have a casual and mission clothing, ya know? Some people get this mixed though.."A knock on the slide-door is heard. I feel a strange pressure from the other side, familiar though."Hey girl, you can come in. Not like we strung him up naked or anything." Wallie calls to the door, and Violet enters, wearing her typical Gothic Lolita clothing. She steps in, looking to the floor, before staring directly at me. "Hello Omar, you've gotten quite dangerous... It's... Interesting..." She smiles, in an eerie way.. especially with how her deeply purple eyes giving off a slight indigo glow...How do I react to this.>A) Tell her to get out of my room.>B) Ask her questions (State)>C) Ignore her, go to sleep.>D) Flirt.>E) Other
Baaack on track.Next time for catalog, just say what you want... Also, we're content right now?Not defying Renaissance?
>>22781665For now>>22781647Holding up alright? B
>>22781665>>D) Flirt.yea you know just don't mention our mom the day after we see her gunned down and we cool ( get it cook cause er got really hot headed there )My dear I am as harmless as a kitten, how about a pet ;)
>>22781647I'm back, just checked emailsb) ask her if she was hurt trying to stop usAre we going to try with Fauna or Violet? It seems to me like cheating on one of them would piss the other off, both are bad ideas.
>>22781800Im going after Fauna, because fuck the system
I'm kind of glad to see her, she kept me from hurting anyone here during my rampage.. I was so careless.."Hey Violet, you holding up alright? I know it was you on the other side of the door.. Uhh, from before."Wallie and Kill excuse themselves to sit outside as Violet saunters up, sits on the side of the bed and puts a hand on my leg, I jerk back reflexively, as it still feels like I'm burnt."Oh, hehe... I'm quite fine, rather well, yes indeed. They told me I just had to keep you away. I could sense that you were weak at the time too, so it wasn't any trouble..." She runs her hand slowly up my leg, smiling sweetly, though all I feel is a burning tingle.Uhhh...>A) Refuse her, Fauna's the one for me.>B) Ask her what she's here for.>C) Ignore the touch, ask more questions.>D) Tell her to get out.>E) Other
>>22781800well Fauna looks like pan fucked a dragon so .... idk I like small goth girls
>>22781816In Weaboo terms... I'd say Fauna is pretty Tsundere... Violet...Oh, and Eliza was also introduced, though briefly.
>>22781853This is also a very good point haha
>>22781326I personally like the last one.
>>22781826Smile at touch, not hinting anything more in case we really do want Fauna. Also B
On a side note, it's been pretty much established thatOmar is very much a teenager. He's reckless to an extent, though realizes when he's out of cards.Loved his Mother, respected his father...Is straight.Is currently suppressing the fact that his mother died in his arms.
>>22781826take her hand I would prefer you didn't do that right now I feel like hamburger raw but now we have a chance to talk tell me about you how you come here ?whats it like here ?(tickler her )
>>22781946Dude, you make me laugh too much...
>>22781960(tickler her ) as she tries to answer
>>22781826I think Fauna would be into Femdom, and Violet kinda seems submissive and willing to 'do whatever to make you happy' when she's sufficiently developed feelings, so I think we should go for Violet.IDK about you guys, that's my opinion.
>>22782073Jesus christFirst off we need to meet this third bitch firstSecond off I think we should maybe try an arena situation in which the possible candidates fight to the death
>>22782108I bet Eliza is a sexy bitch, OP is getting us to get a gf then meet this other babe so we cheat then get fucked up by whoever we cheat on
>>22782125We gotta wait I think.Wait for Eliza bitch
>>22782108Personally, i think if Violets submissive, make that bitch have a 3 way
>>22782132What if she's a fucking sociopath/sadist!?
>>22782155Then we can go to one of the other two sadist/pyschos
>>22782132>>22782125don't worry I got a plan for that ;)such a wonderful glorious mad plan
>>22782165I swear to got if it consists of turning into some angel or something
>>22782155Then we can go hook up with whoever, just say we weren't in the right mind frame after being phoenix and shit
Looking into Violet's eyes, I see that they're still faintly glowing.I can't help but smile a bit at her very forward advance, as she was such a bitch the other day.She's a bitch, but she's pretty. But, I'm really not feeling good... Sitting up, I touch her hand and move it away," I'd prefer you didn't, I feel pretty raw right now."She raises an eyebrow and simply says,"Oh?"At that, I feel like I want her to touch me despite my pain... shit, she's using her power..."Ok, I get it..." I draw in and neutralize her ability. It's not hard to do, so long as I'm not flagging, "So, what are you here for?"She smiles anyway," Well, I wanted to see how you are, with my own eyes. I'm also one of the ones keeping an eye on you right now. And... I wanted to see how well you'd resist.. You block my first degree at least. but I had you earlier, I know it. . ." She bats an eye, and for a moment I see the glow, even through her eyelid. Sliding off of the bed, she swaggers over to a chair and sits down, refraining from further conversation, and simply stares. Wallie and Kill don't re-enter.Despite actively blocking Violet, I begin to feel complacent and relaxed...>A) Go to sleep.>B) Resist-1) Bitch at her for using her power.-2) Ask to see someone(Lock, Eliza, The Supervisor)-3) Ask more questions (state)-4) attack her, I'm getting out of here.
>>22782155So far the rule of thumb is that the women of Renaissance are Socipathic Sadists...Though Eliza's intro was a bit short, it hinted at neither of those traits...
>>22782191Wait... Rape? She's totally going to rape us. Huh
>>22782191B, steadily make the room hotter until she stops using the power.
>>22782191B-Continue to resist2-Eliza at some point
>>22782238To fuck with people and also for the lulz
>>22782191Obviously ask to Eliza in a non creepy way.Is it bad not to resit rape? Im going A) rest and heal faster until Eliza gets here, also showing we are being placid and non-aggressive might get us in the good books with these people keeping us here?
>>22782261resit? fuck -.- *resist Also i think we should act like we are out of power in the case we do need to make a runner
>>22782296By the way, good to have you back Lucifer.
>>22782180nope well sorta not really kinda? no better>>22782191B we are stone like marble unchanging I am the rocks of the eternal shore. Crash against me and be broken!
>>22782232We can only increase our own temp. ambient temp increases as a result, but we have no control over heat, only how much we emit.In other words, to make her uncomfortable, we'd have to be about as hot as a fire.
>>22782347Don't do that then
>>22782313Cheers man, wouldn't miss these, best ones to date
>>22782347Yeah, probs not the best idea...Can we neutralize her ability further?Kinda evolve to be virtually untouched by it?
>>22782468Try this, but act like it still has an effect on us so if she's ordered to kill us she would be unable to do so without knowing? if that makes sense
>>22782468Her ability is an evocation one... and one that utilizes concepts in the flow. Neutralization that's happening now is by converting it into "power" and pretty muchj doing nothing with it.It's what gives Invokers an advantage over evokers.(An advantage similar to fire > Grass in pokemon, but a grass can still stomp a fire)"Evolution" tends to be more physical and biological, so the only way to block it is by "feeding" from it. The backlash is that feeding drains on our overall tolerance for using invocation as the catalyst for the power is in fact "Feeding"
>>22782468but I idea do we use to power our selves to block her i say go >>22782344become like Stone
>>22782581We'd need to absorb and shift into the concept of Rock, which is what put us in this situation in the first place.
I decide to keep resisting her, I step it up a notch, and glare back at her, feeling the actual thoughts she's emitting.I determine that I won't be swayed, though a thought in my mind occurs, how many invokers has she won against in this kind of situation? She's been here longer, and likely far more trained...I keep nullifying her power, though that doubt lingers."I get it, you don't want me causing any trouble, right? I- I won't okay? Just stop, please stop." I finally say after some time, feeling myself slipping.She simply breaks her mask of no expression and nonchalantly says," Oh?""Oh what? I just don't want to sleep right now ok?"Narrowing her eyes in a pleased expression," Oh.""Oh? Is that all you can say? You from a place called, Oh? They got a langua-" Her eyes glow once more and I'm caught in my speech."No, I'm just messing with you. You're dangerous. Dangerous because you're still so weak. You're cute though, and you've got potential... Wonder if they'll keep you here?"I begin to try nullifying her ability again, to no avail until I feel it lift suddenly, her glow stopping. Her eyes look a bit sleepy now, and she yawns, I see, or feel; a flash of violet.I yawn...I wake, up in the middle of the desert. I'm wearing a white hoodie and desert camo cargos. A cell phone in front of me, I see pillars in the distance, what the hell...?The cell phone is ringing.>A) Pick up cell phone.>B) Ignore it.>C) Check out the pillars.>D) Check self.>E) Other
>>22782631God.Fucking.Damn.It.These fucking bitches are gonna get us in so much damn trouble. A/D
>>22782631A/D.If this isn't some mind trick, they're fucked.
>>22782631A) Answer but don't immediately talk, this will be a task given to us to complete and show we are trustworthy to survive, must not fuck up. Also I thought Violet might do something like this, check self as we listen to voice on phone.
>>22782631>>A) Pick up cell phone.hello thank you for calling bobs taxidermy you kill'm we stuff em
>>22782631(Dranule, you beautiful faggot, I hope you're going to archive this thread)
>>22782714(Good. If I wasn't busy with school work right now I'd fucking join the shit out of this Quest)
Ok, if this is real, and I'm pretty sure it is, this must be some kind of test or something, right? I mean, they wouldn't keep me in the hospital for days while they discussed what to do, right?I pick up the cell phone, noting that the pillars are some distance away, however all four of them are equidistant.Answering the cell phone, I think to say something smart, but decide this isn't the time..."Hello Omar Denis." It's the same voice from assessment," We've brought you out to this impromptu testing field to gauge the extent of your power in that form. Failure to comply with what we ask will result in one million credit reductions to your account. Once you are out of funding, you will be terminated. If you attempt escape, you will be terminated. We understand that your form may not be affected by normal means, however we have confirmed that other subjects can apply damage to you. You have been warned." There's a pause on the phone, during the time that the voice had been speaking, I look myself over. I find that there's nothing out of the ordinary, however I don't feel that strange burning sensation anymore... I also notice that there's no food or water here, what exactly... The voice resumes."Having understood all that, our objectives for you are this. First, heat up to your highest attainable temperature. We are aware of your last benchmark. Second, direct your flames at each tower to the best of your ability. Third, fly as swiftly as possible to each tower in whatever order you choose. Fourth, returning to center, fly as high as possible. Fifth. Return to land, remain transformed for as long as possible. Understand?"I instinctively nod, there's no hesitation in the speaker's voice, and it's stern, reminding me of my father..."Understand?""Ah, y-yes. Yes I do."First task is Heat.>A) Comply.>Attempt Escape.>C) Question speaker(State)>D) Other
>>22782787Is this an Anon, that's been here before?
>>22782899(Did you archive it, or should I? If me, what should I write for the tagline/description?)
>>22782914(No, but I've been reading the archived threads and I fucking love this Quest.)
>>22782922Archiving now.Can you tell me what you like about it? could always use the feedback.
>>22782899A-comply but hold back quite a bit
>>22782970Seconding. But will have to go to the same extent we went last time or else they will know were holding back.I swear, this phoenix mode has been more trouble than what it was worth, shouldv'e just had sex with Violet and done a runner
>>22782953Personally, I feel the shortcoming in this session is the "Renaissance Catalog" detracted from the main line.. Like I said, I think it should just be search from now.. What do you guys think?
>>22782899C."And how do you think you'll 'terminate' me?"
>>22783092Ohohoh... Someone's got some cojones.
>>22783138We're the virtual incarnation of fire, plus we can just flaw away..
>>22782953Rather unique setting, SUPER ULTRA FIRE COCK, the interesting characters, etc. etc.What I don't like about it (and this might be me not getting the point of the game, I admit) is that we didn't really get to roll or have a say in what our initial powers are.Like we didn't do a 1d100 roll and get a random super power result. Again, I could just be missing the point of not doing it.Though that's a small complaint honestly.
>>22783164We chose the type of Power he started off with in the very first thread.Then last thread we rolled for the 'Super Power', then again most of us come from /b/ and don't really know how this board is usually used, hahah.
>>22783164There was a decision in the first thread to be an Invoker, and then to have the primary power be evolution.And everyone at the time voted it. . . Though it was before I started archiving Omar's story.Though a roll did take place to determine the success of absorbing the legend of the phoenix.Other rolls will take place in terms of such risky decisions.And I've always said that "Other" is an option.
I decide that I don't want to show them all that I've got... Yet at the same time, I'm aware I might have already shown them quite a bit from the "Warm-Up Chamber.."I decide to play it safe and at least go to that point. I close my eyes and draw in energy as I've become accustomed to, and tap into the Phoenix once more. My flesh slowly begins to ignite and burn steadily until I re assume that flaming form. Feeling a tinge of rage and sadness in my heart, I cry out with a tongue of flame.Straight to business, I begin to heat up my form until my flames become white, the sand within a ten foot radius becoming molten, the flammable shrubs igniting into nothing. I feel an urge to go further, however I feel as though I physically can't. Looking to the marks that adorn even my flames, I see that they're glowing, even now.I keep trying to push the heat farther, however I just can't seem to go further than the white-flame. I let the flame die down, and realize that I melted the phone in my haste... Goddamnit, I don't know if that was good enough now...>A) Proceed to the next task.-1) Effort-2) little effort>B) Attempt escape.>C) Feign weakness.>D) Other
>>22783217>Roll for phoenix legendWasn't referring to that. That was actually rolled, so I didn't count it.And as long as you keep up this Quest, I'll be happy.
>>22783307Will do, I've already got some rough ideas for various routes from this point.
>>22783239A-1 and a halfPut in effort, but not an extreme amount. Like 3/4 effort
>>22783337Seconding, do this for most tasks, however when we get to the last task act like we are fading out and then collapse? we dont want to be reborn from failing/trying to hard.
>>22783365ya sure this
>>22783239>A) Proceed to the next task.-1) Effortthen by the last one make it look like er are strugglingfire balls at 3/4 strength first 2 then 1/2 for last then fly at a mid high pace to the first pillar by the third get half way then struggle to get the topthen when flying get only so high then fall when we become short of breath or the pillars look too small then fall make it look like we are trying to stay aloft, -2) little effort but land hard and break a leg/ankle Injuries makes the weakness look real especially after we avoided the dangerous tests earlier
Next step was to direct my flame...I didn't really try it before... I look to my burning talons, in place of my hands and stare at the eastern tower. Still white-hot, I throw my hands out to throw the flame, however it doesn't fly like I intend. Spinning around, I try to throw flame at the western tower, however none of it extends, same as before.What the fuck... I look to my hands and think for a bit. Even if I did try, it doesn't seem like I can "throw" flame.Whipping my arms a few more times, I find this to be true, nothing more can necessarily be done... unless... I unfurl my wings, holding them high before giving them a low beat, burning wind travels with the beat of my wings. Focusing on the northern tower, I give a quick and powerful whip that sends me back a bit, and the burning air travels for about twenty meters before fizzling out. After a few more attempts, I find that to be the best I can manage.For the next task, I fly from tower to tower at a casual, yet somewhat hastened pace. upon nearing them, I see that there are people standing near the base, and along the outskirts. I don't recognize any of them until the third tower, I see the familiar black-suit of Fauna...>A) Wave.-1) continue at same effort level.-2) increase effort, give it our all.>B) Attempt escape.>C) Land and speak with Fauna.>D) Other
>>22783522>>A) Wave.>-1) continue at same effort level.little less even
I throw Fauna a wave, it's kind of reassuring, seeing her here. I know she sees it, however, she doesn't return the gesture.I continue on flying, for a moment slowing down as my mind trails off to how natural it feels, figuring it has to do with taking in a bird. Ohhh, this form feels great... Reaching the last tower at my own pace, I return to the glassed center to prepare for the final real part, the climb. how far up can I go?>A) Go as high as you can, more for yourself.>B) Go up high, and then attempt escape.>C) Go up high enough to please them.>D) Refuse.>E) Other
>>22783703Lets go to the Moon
>>22783703A.People, remember fire doesn't really go well when there's no air to sustain it.
>>22783703c) but fail and hurt self not too badly to make it look like that was the full extent
>>22783782fuck it break a leg make it look good we heal fast
Finding my stability on the newly glassed surface, I look to the pillars, I know that they're watching, the other Overs, and somewhere, the Supervisor...Gazing to the sky, I begin to wonder how high I can fly, yet I feel that if I find out now, it'd be bad to let them know...Picking up my wings to take off, I ascend in the most reasonable fashion, I seem to just know.I circle up upon my own burning heat drafts, feeling myself rise higher and higher with next to no effort. Soon however, I break into full ascending flight, pushing myself towards some of the scant clouds, I take a deep breath as I decide to take the fall that could cost me my future here.Wobbling in flight, I pass by a cloud, my left wing dispels the vapor, yet I disable my left wing.Let's have them think I'm weak towards water...Flying clumsily with one wing, my adrenaline begins pumping as I fight the fall, really trying to restore the wing out of fear."Shit, shit! This, this is gonna hurt!" I lose what semblance of lift I have left and fall to the earth, I spin around to aim for a lifting dive, however with only one wing, I find that highly difficult and in my semi-solid form, I do hear a sickening crunch upon landing. I look and I see that the still somewhat solid part of my leg has a bone protruding from it... Oh dear god...>A) Cancel power, wait for assisstance.>B) Force into place, quicken/shift heal.>C) Wait out the pain and the duration of the form.>D) Other
>>22783951C. We don't know what it'll do, and it'll be rad to see.
>>22783951That sounded perfect, C) make them think we're still trying our hardest for them as they asked us to wait in that form until it cancelled, maybe act like we black out from pain?
>>22783986My name deleted apparently -.- didn't even notice haha. Also, if we wait it out, does that mean we get re-born? Cause i don't really want us to forget everything...
>>22784057Rebirth occurs due to death.However based on Phoenix legend, there are conditions to this... Omar may have research to do.Timing out in Phoenix form won't kill him either.. What was so dangerous last time was the fact that he was in an Oven... one in which he set on fire.
Despite my pain and suffering, I decide to wait out my form, I really don't want to cross them, at least not yet. I see that Violet was right, despite this power... And true, I did hold back a bit here... I'm still a green kid. In my fly around, there weren't more than 10 other overs between all the towers and their perimeters.Holding onto my leg, I find that I'm bleeding flame that looks like liquid, it's curious, and I focus on that for a while. Soon enough, the form dispels itself. Fauna, and a stranger that I had probably seen in the Cafeteria come up to me. Apparently I ended up closest to them..."Comfirmation that you can no longer move, and that you've exhausted your shift?">A) Yes, take me back now...>B) ...No, force-shift and attempt escape.>C) Ask Questions( State )>D) Other
>>22784140C. Ask what they were thinking, bringing you out here without your permission.
>>22784140A/C) Ask them if them if the can help you as you don't think you can move to well with bone protruding out of your leg
The pain, it hurts, and with that form gone, I only see bone and blood from my leg.The stranger beside Fauna wears a chain that's strategically wrapped around his body, along with desert camo military garb. I can't see his face, I can only tell that his build is lean...To Fauna, I glare, anger in my eyes," What in the hell is this?! Bringing me out to someplace without my permission?!"Fauna does not seem to hear me however, and repeats," Comfirmation that you can no longer move, and that you've exhausted your shift?"Sighing, I gesture to my done in leg," Look at this, yes, I'm done, exhausted. Look, forget it, can you ta-" Fauna steps in and grabs me by the throat, lifting my up and holding me firmly in the air."Omar Denis, you have been declared, by the executives of Renaissance, too dangerous to live. What is your course of action?"What the fuck.. Fauna... Why... I struggle for breath...>A) Give in, I'm done.>B) Spit on her and try to force power out, I'm not going to die!>C) Glare at her, with hatred in my eyes.>D) Other
>>22784323Well shit niggerD-Ask her what hers is

>>22784323God dam, this can be a trick to see if we lied to them, i.e forcing us to show our power OR it could be the real deal and we are rightly fucked. D) demand to talk to the supervisor, they said we live until we run out of credits, and we are far from that.
>>22784323D, glare at her with distaste and disgust.
>>22784341To clarify"What's your course of action""I guess that depends on yours"
>>22784385Changing it to this, plus asking him what his Powers are.
>>22784410His? The man in Camo?
>>22784442Yeah, that guy.(I hope he doesn't have any...)
>>22784442Im talking to Fauna, hoping she will side with us though I doubt it
>>22784460We could say to her 'Well, you're the one that took us into this forsaken place, it's fitting you take us out.' with distaste or someshit.
>>22784494This would be good to try manipulate her, add so feelings inbetween and were good to go I reckon, big gamble though. I hope theres another series with diff character and scenario if we do die *hint hint OP
>>22784494>>22784527Something that'll get to her, maybes like 'I thought you stopped killing those that loved you.'
I glare at Fauna with fear and disgust at the verdict that she's just given me, putting my hands on her arm to pick myself up a bit and out of her grasp. Her grip remains firm, though I can talk now," Wh-what's yours?"Fauna remains silent behind that black mask of hers.She repeats herself again, as though she hadn't heard me,"Omar... Denis. You have been declared, by the executives of Renaissance, too dangerous to live," She pulls me in close to her helm," What.. is your course of action?"I feel the claws of her suit begin to dig into my throat painfully, I wince and tear up between that and my throbbing, wounded leg."D-did, I... run out... of creds?" I weakly get out.She ignores this too, and simply restates her question.The man beside her remains silent.>A) Give in.>B) Force out power. Fight.>C) Negotiate ( State)>D) Other
>>22784552Well I'll go with >>22784385>What's yours?
Anyone else tense?God, I'm tense.
>>22784564I'm always tense when I play Pokemon.
>>22784564Give in. Say something cheesy as we go like "you know your gonna miss me.". It's either a test to see if we gave it our all or our death, but we should embrace it either way
>>22784552Do we know anything about the dude thats silent next to her? Also weren't there like 11 people? where'd they all get too? Are they just watching from a distance?>>22784590Seconding this. It's all a test.... I hope.
>>22784617They're watching from a distance. Basically acting as a perimeter.
>>22784638'Neither of us want to do this. Go no further and I'll work for you as before, go further and I'll escape.'
From everything that I had learned about this place, that I had learned about Fauna and myself, I found out that I'm just entirely inexperienced. To her, I'm just a trifle, a blade of grass to her elder tree. If her story is true, she's been an Over from day one, hell, even if I fought her, she'd just as likely snap my neck and do whatever needs to be done to kill me... For good.Bringing a hand down, I stare at her, not with anger or frustration, but with understanding of my position,"Why... does it matter? You'll just... kill me... anyway... Heh... You're.. gonna miss me... right?" I drop my other hand and fall back into her crushing, clawed grip. The man in camo laughs, breaking his silence for the first time, he pulls off the articles covering his face, and smiles in a very calm and cool fashion,"Excellent performance, Omar Denis." It's the voice from the phone," Seems you'll fit in here yet. You only received two reductions to your account, one for flying lazily, and the other for failing to throw fire, though in future testing, that one may be refunded." This, this is the supervisor?!Fauna removes her claws from my neck and tosses me down into the sand, "Omar Denis, you are pathetic." She walks off as The Supervisor waves over another Overhuman," We had to be sure you'd gotten every bit of power out, further, you need to understand that just one Overhuman can't comprehend the combined power of others. A man cannot stand alone, Omar Denis." I see a purple glow again and I wake up in my own bed, head aching.. Goddamnit, the fuck was that?! Some kind of dream?!I'm angry at violet right up to the point that I check my leg, no cast, however the bone's been forced into place for my natural ability to take hold. I briefly met with the supervisor... He was right there... if I had power...>A) I would've torn off his head.>B) The same thing.>C) Asked for more money.>D) Offed myself.>E) Other.(this is a personality change question.View of Renaissance.)
>>22784781A. Definitely A.He needs to be ruthlss when he needs to be, yet compassionate other times.
>>22784781Fuck Yeah! We survived haha! >>22784801Seconding this.
>>22784862>"Omar Denis, you are pathetic."Is from Fauna, just to clarify.Missed the dialogue line-change.
>>22784877From Fauna that's a good job, she wanted us to hide our powers and we did so, she complemented us on that in a negative way ;)
>>22784877>>22784904Oh, actually thought she looked at us with disdain from then on, ahahah.
If I had power then, I'd tear off that fucker's head!Those freaking torturous test and training rooms, teasing me with life and death, who the fuck does he think he is, playing god with my life?! I may have submit, but that was only because Fauna held my life in her grip.I know her power, and, and she told me to hide mine...I smile, I might just be able to make that wish come true... if what the Supervisor said is true, I should have three million credits in my account... With a quarter million per training excercise... They'll be focusing on my Phoenix form, and losing sight of my "Real" power.My leg won't break as easily as it did before, and, this training.. if I take the punishments, I'll get stronger, and stronger.I don't laugh, but I can't stop smiling, revenge will be sweet. . .(That's it for tonight, I'm sure we're all too tired to keep going on... I'll email a day in advance before and then again when I start the thread.As usual, it was fun guys. I'll hang around a bit more to answer any questions you have that are non-spoiler related.)
Oh, and if anyone has any ideas for tor- I mean, training chambers/equipment, just let me know. I'd love the ideas to expand upon Renaissance's facilities!
Peace, good night, my fellow Overs.
>>22785060 "Welcome to the enrichment center... you monster"seriously underwater would be interesting, deep cold conditions, or vacuum.hum toxicity, radiation, or mental (would be funny doing a test for inelegance and be expecting some sort of death trap)or be very crazy and experiment with precognition.lots of crazy stuff.
