The Story of Omar Denis Continues!Previous threads can be found here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=OverhumanAfter losing his parents due to circumstances beyond his control, Omar unlocked his latent potential as an Overhuman.Recruited by a mysterious woman in black, known as "Fauna," he entered into an organization known as "Renaissance."During the training of his powers, he absorbed the legend of the phoenix and shot up in danger levels among the organization, tested in the desert, he was allowed to live..Last time: Omar entered into the Butterfly Room for training with his associate, Kill.In a small bout of madness, he tried to absorb something much bigger than he's capable of... Upon recovering from the fiasco, he finally commits to taking magical theory classes, meeting Spartan, Katie and Drake.Realizing that he's incapable of using the Phoenix transformation at will, he's looked into getting a Medium... However he realized that the location of his mother's corpse was beyond his knowledge and upon asking the Supervisor, he discovered they were in possession of her body. Today, he receives her ashes...
Sleep had been hard for me last night, I had many thoughts of mother. Her smell, our home, trips to the park when I was young.. And her last moments defending me... That's been burned into my mind... I have suspicions that those men must have been sent by Renaissance... Why else would they, would Fauna, have found me so quickly? These thoughts stir in my mind and become a boiling cauldron of vengeance. My flesh feels as though it's on fire, though it doesn't ignite into my other form... Hell, I'm not even sweating.Morning comes, and I'm tired, very tired. I receive a parcel in the airlock of my room, mother's remains... As I touch the package, my hand ignites. So this is the spark I needed... >A) Set to work on creating an appropriate totem from the Ash.>B) Search Renaissance's Catalog.>C) Search the Console for Missions.>D) Search the console for training.>E) See someone at Breakfast...>F) Write in.
>>22926905did we get the chemicals we needed to properly form and color the glass? if so A, if not B, for said chemicals, then A
>>22926905I liked the idea of a glass phoenix, so let's order the necessary components, I listed them off last thread. None of the things are that rare or expensive, it shouldn't even take that long to get here. So order the stuff we need, then make the totem.
>>22926973I think Dran said they'd come to about 500 credits right? unless we decide on lead glass + uranium
>>229269885000 I think he said. Honestly we'd only need trace amounts of uranium, not enough to do much of anything or radiate enough for anyone to care in the least, but still, let's not go asking for uranium.
>>22927013And we'll probably want a crucible for hold the molten glass, and ask for them to let us have some time in a room that is somewhat heat resistant, we won't be going really hot, but we don't want to melt our room on accident.
I spend the morning looking through what connection to the internet we have. I find that social networking sites are blocked, and the only amount of exported data we can use is enough to get to a web-page. Seems they don't desire much contact with the outside world...I had an idea in mind.. A glass phoenix... with my mother's ashes incorporated... That'd be a rightful way to carry her around and have her live on in this form of mine...I find out that I need sodium carbonate, lime, magnesium oxide, aluminium oxide, selenium, cadmium, and sulphur, to get the color that I'd like for her... a ruby red. . .Upon completing the order, the catalog says that it'll require one day for the materials to be delivered.Another day... Eh, that'll be fine...I can still train as I am now...It's a bit past the regular time for breakfast...>A) Go to breakfast, see someone.>B) Check console for Training assignments.>C) Attend Magical theory.>D) Explore the facility.>E) Other
>>22927080oh and how are we gonna carry the thing? on some kind of a chain or..?
>>22927138check for training assignments then get some gruel
>>22927148Up to you guys.
>>22927148Probably a chain of some kind would be best, wear it as a necklace under our clothes. Considering that we didn't melt our clothes when we do this I think we impart some resistance to fire to our stuff so it'll be fine.>>22927138>B) Check console for Training assignments.See what there is, and then we can get some breakfast, not gruel.
>>22927198Supplied clothing has been modified to be heat resistant.
>>22927198gruel's the shit
>>22927211so we gotta make our chain a special chain brb looking up metals that don't melt ever
>>22927211did we ever find out exactly how hot we could get?
>>22927262Not exactly, however we made some of the metal in the warm up chamber ignite when we pushed heat... Granted, not going to max heat would be in Omar's best interest if he was to use the form effectively...
>>22927280that makes sense. i guess we shouldn't have to deal with fancy alloys and can just stick with an element like tungsten then
While I'm at the console, I bring up the menu for training assignments.I read the suggested menu.>Water Skater Chamber. Trains Quickening and shift-Recommended by Kyle Bulwoski>Atlas Press. Trains ReinforcementRecommended by Margaret Willow>Most Dangerous Zoo. Trains Shift.Recommended by Fauna>Supervised SparChallenged by Katie Clover>Supervised SparChallenged by Drake Machete
>>22927332I'm thinking the Most Dangerous Zoo could be fun, Fauna knows what she's talking about.
>>22927332I'm thinking most dangerous zoo would be fun, and maybe later we can go see Katie
>>22927355>>22927378Training assignment... in Renaissance... Fun?Heh... hahah...
>>22927401For some strange twisted definition of fun. Oh, and be sure to bring a bit of our mother's ashes with us, just in case we have to catch on fire for this.
I accept the assignment for the "Most Dangerous Zoo." I figure Fauna clearly knows what she's talking about.. she had warned me of my ill practices before I went ahead and put myself out of commission for a week.. The console schedules me for 1400. Checking the time, it''s about 1000 I have enough time to eat breakfast or even explore the facility if I'd like to...> Adventure around the facility.> Eat breakfast and see who I run into.> Go visit Violet.> Write in
>>22927489as much as I'd like to go exploring I think we need some food in us.east breakfast and see who i run into
>>22927489[X] Eat breakfast and see who I run into.Let's get some grub, not gruel.
Rolled 64evens is ItalianOdds is gruel
I decide to get some breakfast, It's always been an important start to the day after all... And hell, I've had some interesting conversations in the cafeteria... Though lately it's just Wallie and I from our little group.. Eliza and Lock are on assignment, and Kill's recently left as well. Our booth had been so full.. I sigh.. I've actually come to think of them more as friends and comrades. They may pull the occasional trick or two.. but they've been pretty good to me... Hell, they've tolerated an overpowered and reckless rookie such as me among them... I bet it'd have been for anyone... They're just pretty nice... like a fam- No, I won't say that.. My family is dead...I order another Italian breakfast, it's what our chef is best at and the high carb diet tends to do well for us. Today, it's paninis with a small macedonian and glass of fresh squeezed orange juice.Here lies the normal choice of where to sit. . .Wallie isn't here, he must have eaten lunch already.. The cafeteria is pretty empty overall, most other Overs seem to have eaten breakfast already, though some seem to be here for brunch.I see familiar Red hair, I'm pretty sure that's Katie.I see the blonde hair of Drake... He seemed so reckless yesterday..> Sit with Katie.> Sit with Drake.> Sit alone..There's also a guy I haven't seen before.. he looks hispanic..> Sit with the guy.
>>22927697>my family is deadgoing straight batmanI think I wanna go talk to Drake so option two
>>22927697[X] Sit with Katie.
>>22927755switching my vote to sit with Katie
>>22927754I'm thinking more birdman... he should become an attorny.
>>22927795if we try and learn something hard enough that we damage our brain does our evolution make us smarter? that would be epic haha
>>22927852Evolving the brain is difficult. it'd require directed and focused evolution.
>>22927885damn. so we can't just headbutt our way to becomming an attorney
Sitting with Katie should be pleasant.. Aside from a lot of the other women in this facility, she's been one of the less bitchy ones.. I actually had fun fighting with her yesterday... and her movements... they seemed so odd and practiced..."May I sit here?" I ask her once I'm at the booth.She's alone and she looks up at me with a freckled smile," Of course, so long as you don't mind all the empty space, hehe."I glance over at Drake, I see that he's staring at me..."Why isn't Drake sitting with you?"She waves that off," Oh, he's too much of a brooder, ya know? I get t' thinking that he takes it easy on me in sparring. No fun at all... But you, Omar.. I like that name. You made the game fun yesterday, what was it that you did to your arm? Was that a shift? I wish I could do that..." She starts to ramble on...Where do I want to take this conversation?> Talk about/Ask about Drake> Flirt with her, finally a chick that isn't crazy.> Ask her questions about her abilities, about being an animist in general (you may state specifics)> Write in.
No Qurl Dox tonight, I feel like something is missing... That guy is a riot.
>>22927909[X] Ask her questions about her abilities, about being an animist in general (you may state specifics)Ask what it's like to use your own soul to do things, because that sounds really cool. Talk to her a bit about shifting as well since she seems interested in it. Establish a rapport.
>>22927924yeah haha, he comes up with the craziest shit.>>22927909I sort of want to talk about Drake, but I get the feeling she doesn't. maybe ask her how she discovered her powers. since it come from her soul it might have a very emotional base like ours do
>>22927986A very emotional base... The turn of the whole world against us and the death of our mother....who wouldn't want to talk about that? hehe
Suddenly, this seems like a super powered psyche ward at the worst...
>>22928016>>22928027Sorry, that was me.
>>22928039I was excited for a second, thought we had another person
>>22928062I know there are lurkers. About 8 peeps have voted on each archived thread.
>>22928084Maybe some people can't catch it while it's running, or they just lurk.Come out LURKERS.
I won't bite lurkers, I promise
I get a feeling like she'd like to avoid talking about Drake... I wonder if something's going on between the two? Whatever, that's not much of my business right now.."What's it like using your own soul to do... well.. What we or.. you do? That sounds crazy..." I say, sincerely curious.She giggles a bit and rolls her eyes to the upper right," Ohh, I don't know, it sounds almost as crazy as absorbing dreams, doesn't it? But really, How do you do it? How does it feel?"She shrugs her shoulders and gives me something of a coy smile, "How about you tell me first?"Well, I'll be the first one then," Well, I just kind of let power flow into me... It's like opening a gate to a damn and just letting it in... When I need to shift into something though... well. Like how I used the concept of a butterfly yesterday in my spar against Drake... I need to focus on that and let it... I think... let it come to life... it's the same way that I use my phoenix form.. though I feel like that's different in some way...""In what way?""Like it's become part of me, in a way..."She smiles," How interesting..""Ok, so what about you? How does using your soul feel?"She closes her eyes and thinks for a moment, she points a finger up and starts," Well, it feels like I'm more than just me. Like..."I push," Like...""Like I become what I reach out to.. or it becomes me. The sand that I controlled. That became a part of me. I couldn't feel pain when you blew it away that one time... But I felt it leave... it's weird... and I've heard that we need to be "conscious" of where "We" are at... At all times... Miss Rendough said that it's advantageous for us, as well as important so our souls don't gather "interference.""Interference?" I ask.. this is new...She shrugs," We need to be careful to clean our souls regularly after we fight, or preform a task with our powers. Casting ourselves out into the world leaves us vulnerable to negative thoughts and ideas...
>>22927986>>22927924you like me you really like me just got out of work tattoo ran long >>22928241you haft to be the single most cheerful person I have meet here that must be no problem for you at all XDso what do you like to do when not school people in a spar?
It's painful and some are hard to get rid of... Also, if we don't keep ourselves together, we can find it hard to continue functioning...""Like, you'll die?""Well, not die... at least not right away... But we'd need to regather ourselves and focus on our body again... I usually keep everything close... that's kind of a scary thought, you know?""But you said that you don't tire like I do, right? What'd you mean by that?""Miss Rendough said that we just don't get tired like Evokers and Invokers...Something about you guys having some kind of a limit.. What's that about?"Ah, this hits on what happened with me..."A week ago.. I tried to draw in too much, tore up my body and almost killed me. There's some things that are just too hard for us.""Then we're the same.""What?""I don't get tired, but I can't control a whole lot. There's things hard for both of us..." She smiles sweetly..."So, how did you come upon your power? And.. well... Of Renaissance?"She stares at me, and then looks to her half-eaten food."About that..."Drake stomps over and slams his hand on the table, staring at me,"Look at you two, talking like you're all friendly... What is this the winner's circle or something?!""Hey, Drake! You should relax, take a chill. We can play a game later." Katie tries to talk him down...However he isn't having it," A game?! Katie, you've danced circles around me in sparring and you call it a game?!""Yeah, it's a game, and it's not much fun playing with you.." She looks to me."Oh, I see how it is.. You think Omar's better than me. We're both Invokers! Nothing that he can do that I can't!" He throws a finger into my face, I follow it up to his glaring eyes, "Omar! I challenge you to a fight! Yesterday wasn't the real me! I'll show you that!"> What is this fool even on about... Ignore the request, finish eating...> Ask Katie what she thinks, and why this is happening.> Accept the challenge, I knocked him out once, I can do it again.
> Write in.
>>22928386Yeah, you've been consistent in Overhuman threads for a bit now. It's weird not having you here.What'd you get for a tatt?
So, we've got a rough idea of this now...Just so you guys know...Evokers > AnimistsAnimists > InvokersInvokers > Evokers.It's advantage vs, and not necessarily guaranteed wins... Also, there are some of each that may have a unique talent that turns the table on their trinity weakness.
>>22928414>>22928426"Drake, I'm trying to eat breakfast with a lovely lady, just because this place is a mental ward with superpowers doesn't mean we can't be friendly.I won't learn anything interesting from fighting you, if I wanted to punch a brick wall I'd do that, and as Katie said, you're not much fun. So, maybe later."
>>22928414> Ask fool, accept Katie, eat challenge.
>>22928414>>22928507>>22928438I didn't get one I do piercings and clean the shop and close it up had to wait till this girl was done getting some script on her ribs >>22928414>[X] Accept the challengeok sounds like fun man we you want to "Dance"I kind ant to finish breakfast first that cool ? but lets make it interesting say Katie how about winner gets a kiss ;)that way I actually got a reason to beat you again
>>22928507One decline>>22928511Wot even is this?>>22928575One acceptance..And both contain such cruel burns... bwahahaha...Should make our thing verbally "burning" people... Hehe..
>>22928575>>22928616>>22928507roast him verbally then you know beat him up with fire I well if your going to give me an attitude like this I wouldn't be as nice as I was last time ok?also go for the kiss line
>>22928616acceptanceIf anything could get Us "hot "its ruining our conversation with a pretty girl see if she wants to come along "kid I was just getting warmed up you sure you could handle some real heat"?
>>22928616>Wot even is this?Ask Drake why he's going this, takie Katie on a datie, chew Drake up like a panini in the fight.
>>22928084>>22928088I'm here but I'm kinda sleepy as fuck and I need to finish reading about 11 pages in my textbook.I'll vote up the archived thread, though.
>>22928414Accept his challenge, but try to actually teach him something during/after it, as it should help make him more receptive in future conversations.
So, we after Katie now? Just clarifying for that kiss thing.
>>22928864She seems like the sanest person here, which isn't saying much, and looks to be a nice girl.
>>22928864 seams like a good Idea at the time so sure Violette didn't even visit
>>22928892She also hasn't been here long... implying that there isn't anything wrong with her.
>>22928918I said "seems" for a reason, I'm sure she has her own bucket of problems.
>>22928864I think we have gone after every single girl about this point. We are going to get caught so hard by Fauna and Violet, all whom im sure would love to torture us for it. Make sure you pick the right one
>>22928986The feel when you realize that it's been an Invoker, and Evoker, and an animist...
This attitude of Drake's... it's annoying...I slap his finger out of my face, he puts it back where it was. I do so again, and he puts it back again... This fucker... "You just need to ruin..." I stand up and glare at him,"You've just got to ruin my day, huh?!"Katie leans back in her seat, against the cushion of the booth," Oh, you're going to accept his game Omar? I don't have fun with him, but you might..." She smiles as she usually does, though it may be just a touch more wicked than usual."Normally, if I wanted to punch a brick wall, I'd do it later... But it seems that I need to break it now, huh?!" I grab his arm and hold it out of my face... He seems surprised by my unpowered strength,"I was just getting warmed up last time, can you handle the heat?" I say grinning, I see a glow from his shirt and he breaks free from my grip."You've got no idea man, I hadn't even gotten started.." He almost pleads as he grinds his teeth."Katie, what's say winner gets a kiss... Since this seems to be about you?" I say as smugly as I can, more aiming to piss off Drake even more..."You Asshole!" Drake shouts, his marks glowing erratically and slowly turning purple as he seems to be just barely holding himself back.Katie laughs," Maybe not a kiss Omar, but winner gets to play me.""Omar, you and me, combat zone, now." He walks off, leaving footprints in the metal floor...----------------------------------I touched the parcel that contained my mother's ash, to get myself to flare up. I dare not misuse them... I keep the heat in my hand, and feel as though from this, I can use the full form...I meet Katie and Drake in the Sparring sand pits. Drake has his arms crossed and is scowling, while Katie seems like she's daydreaming about something."About time you showed, Omar." Drake growls, his aggression.I let it wash over me, I need a clear head for this. I remember what Wallie had said... Anger makes our powers unstable... Right?
Katie just kind of laughs at the whole situation,"Ok boys, let's see who'll win. Both being invokers, it should be a fair game. Tell me when you're ready!""Hey, Omar, your hand's on fire... you gonna pull that bird shit on me?! I'll tear off your wings!" His marks are still glowing purple...> Ready some reinforcement, we're gonna need it.> Quicken, lets see if we can abuse his lack of speed.> Shift with concepts... (Float like a butterfly...)> Don phoenix form from the get-go. We're not holding back.> Write in.
>>22929100[X] Don phoenix form from the get-go. We're not holding back.Fuck it, burning time.
>>22928986not every girl and violets a fatty fat fatperson thats why her eyes are glowing she is constantly using her powers to look good. and she just wanted us cause we were strong Fauna i don't think she would give a fuck one way or the other >>22929040there is no anger there is Heat there is noannoyance there is fire there is no Omar for I am flame "flame on! ">>22929100 let the heat hold him back then when in Fire bird form Quicken can't touch this
>>22929100[X] Quicken and Shift with Concepts.
>>22929163Samefag here.I'd rather we try and train some of our weaker abilities right now, so we can:1.) Get better overall2.) See if he has changed since last time (Might have been a day, but lots of shit can happen in a day. Like our Phoenix miracle)3.) Show that we don't consider him much of a threat.
>>22929100How about shifting a chambered fist or two and then applying quicken. I don't think its' necessary to bring out the trump card on someone that's even greener than we are.
>>22929208>>22929212You make a good point, change from >>22929115to starting with some Quickening and Shifting as well if we can do that. But keep the Phoenix on the back burner.
>>22929100QUESTION: Has Drake met or heard of Fauna yet? If not, I kinda wanna drag a fight with him along to where she steps in and he tries to hit her for interrupting.Just to see him get decimated.
>>22929163>>22929212>>22929208valid points lets do this but what concept ?I suggest willow tree bend and reflect attackstoss him around with spirit Aikijutsu
Gettin food real quick... Will be a lil' longer for this...>>22929208Commendable plan by the way.
>>22929336I honestly have no idea.Maybe some sort of Viper Strike or something that we can use during Quickening.
Use quest in the subject title
>>22929346>make up a plan that I think will get ignored>is well liked by thread members and Quest runner himself.Holy fuckballs I'm so wet right now
>>22929336That works, though bamboo would probably be better for using flexibility, bending, and rebounding.
>>22929413And if I remember correctly, bamboo also grows rather fast so we can try some sort of regeneration/rejuvenation thing as well.
Something I've been wondering:If we decided to play Overhuman as an asshole, would we have been Drake?
>>22929370It was a good idea, it's not good to rely solely on the First Order Optimal Strategy that we have with the Phoenix, it's powerful but there are counters to it and times where we don't want to set everything on fire, if we haven't gotten our skills with other stuff up we'll be boned when that happens.
>>22929413willow is the primary meteor used in aikido/jujitsunot just strength but moving with it and reflecting it back then snapping the locks to break bones in a spiral fracture think Steven Seagal but less nice striking quickly like a willow whip those fuckers hurt god dam do I hate a willow switch >>22929370you the man now dog
>>22929448Not necessarily. Drake's... a bit different...
While on the topic of shifting with concepts, how would we go about setting up specific forms with their own grouping of adaptations? I was the anon from the other day asking about it, and I've been thinking a little more on the subject. What if we we to establish a couple basic cookie-cutter forms that we memorize the construction for and then just further adapt to the situation at hand to maximize our shifting prowess.Just to throw it out there, one form could be something like a heavier "bruiser" form, with plates/carapace and denser musculature/bone structure which would be strong in slugging matches/situations where raw brute strength is best. Another form could be something with lighter, springier muscles that move very quickly and precisely that you would use in conjunction with some type of bladed/piercing adaption. That form would be something akin to like a duelist/assassin.Of course, this is purely my two cents on how to get the most out of Omar's shifting abilities, I have no idea what constraints actually exist.
>>22929510>Drake's... a bit different...Yeah, he's more special than a drunk person with Down's Syndrome, we can tell.
I think to myself, my left hand still burns slightly with the power of the Phoenix. I decide, using this on him isn't worth it right now.. this is still a spar, and an opportunity to get better at my other abilities.I prepare a shift to "float like a butterfly"... I can't think of when this couldn't be useful... it's allowed me to move along the sand as though it's a solid form... I prepare quickening and begin to think of the wave of the willow that some martial arts may employ.. or even the strike and reflex of vipers...Stepping into the sand pit, I bow to the aggressive blonde and feel his heart beating from where I stand..."I am ready.""So am I!" Drake charges, faster than before, however I dodge out of the way with heightened speed and snap a sharp strike to his neck as he passes... It feels like iron...Drake presses in against the sand, sliding quite a bit, he roars and his marks begin to turn yellow, he kicks off like butterfly this time.Another pass and he's still too slow, he turns and throws a backhand that I let myself fall under before aiming a dual strike at the side of his ribs. Still, like iron... He draws a leg up and stomps, spraying sand everywhee, forcing my retreat.Out of the cloud, he crashes into me with an extended arm, too close and fast for me to react even while quickened, he slams me into the ground with a force that causes me to lose my breath... What...I see him ready a sloppy punch to my position on the ground and reflexively aim to catch it with a double hand parry. Trained instinct fails me this time as I'm once more reminded of Overhuman combat, I feel my naturally reinforced ribs break...He steps back and laughs, his marks changing color to a soft pinkish purple. "See Katie?! This is how I can really fight?! Omar's got nothing on me!"I focus on healing during my short respite.. He thinks I'm done...> Reinforce, I need to match him to some degree.
> Shift into something more! ... I need to get past that defense!> Quicken, all the faster, he'll burn himself out with that force..> I've had enough, I'll show him my flame!> Write in.
>>22929720"Drake, I'm not setting you on fire and melting the room because you're not worth it."[X] Shift into something more! ... I need to get past that defense!Keep on shifting, focus on the bending, redirecting, his force means nothing if we move with it and throw him into a wall.
>>22929734I know this is probably stupid, but when we shift to mimic animals, can we get chemical adaptations too? like venom or toxins? Cause if we went Komodo Dragon and paralysed him for a bit, could be entertaining
>>22929335He's likely heard of her if he's listened to some of the senior members...>>22929433We already regenerate.>>22929448Following up on this, I think Omar's turned out to be quite an interesting protagonist overall. He's a bit innocent, though he still realizes vengeance. He's a teen in that's learning that he's not invincible. Right now he's motivated by vengeance... But he's yet to realize the big picture. >>22929515That would be prearranged patterns of thought, ideally concentrated in the mind, or the idea in a totem of some sort to make it easier. This was about the dragon form, right? If he took on additional physical adaptations of concepts, he could begin to shift and mold the form around as well. Though that'd still be fairly high level. The nice thing about invocation is that the power of the flow accounts for "reality error." Which would be something that "shouldn't be" coming to exist.... Such as the "Phoenix" The power of the flow accounted for the inconsistencies of the legend and brought it into reality... Now... in the case of "evolution" his DNA is reworked, and natural quickening speeds the process. That's very "real" and thus less costly due to a lack of "reality error" if that makes sense? I've heard of a similar effect known as "paradox" from another game.
>>22929720>> we can take power and ideas from Evokers why not other invokers do not mach him take his power from him completely rend him low and just slap him >>22929776"Drake, I'm not setting you on fire and melting the room because you're not worth it."use this as we do it we don't take things on directly to escape heat we became fire to defeat him we become him
>>22929860I'd rather not try that, we know we can do it on Evokers, but trying to take the concept and power from another Invoker might lead to another us almost dying from trying something too big moment.
>>22929817See here>>22929842Yes.Though mimicing their concept, and shifting into said animal is different."Float like a butterfly" is a concept shift that warps the reality of the user, making the world treat their steps as a butterfly."Phoenix" is a Mimicry (I know there's a better word) that makes him the legend... in the same way that when he adapts a body part.Though the body part effect can stay due to the realism... if you follow.. I know it's detailed.. (And honestly, I'm keeping this all in my head....)
>>22929860That'd be akin trying to take his soul.Aka, everything he is/was/will do.... Instadeath. Even some gods are a touch easier.
>>22929918>>22929884ok then T-rex strength speed of a humming bird body of a rhino lets beast out
>>22929897Another note on the phoenix, the "Reality Error" is also why it drains him during use. He needs to take in energy to sustain it, though after transforming, it's not a huge cost. More like a trickle effect.
>>22929964When will you archive this thread, Dranule?
>>22929969As usual, when I have a name for it."The Fight?"Or maybe....
>>22929897Wicked, I reckon we get a blade/bone that can be hidden in our skin/arm and can flick our to cut enemies however it is coated like the komodo Dragons venom which practically paralyse the target or slow them down incredibly.What path would we need to follow to get stuff like this just curious
>>22929988That'd be following the path of his "natural" specialty.
>>22929776>>22929817Going with this in terms of the "willow" bending and things of that like... Unless there's more input.
Speak now elegan/tg/entlemen.
>>22929720Shift something to pass through his defense. Doesn't have to be the chambered fist exactly, but some type of arm design that can do internal damage would be ideal.What comes to mind is Big O's farm actually, with that piston-punch, although that wouldn't be easy to re-create. How about creating something in the arm that could compress air to a high degree and then release it like an explosion upon contact with the strike target, the air being directed in such a way to drive the fist further into the target after making contact. Or is this what the chambered fist basically does already?>>22929842It was about the dragon-form originally, but I'm reducing it to a broader, non-legend based format, but yeah I get the gist of what you're saying.
>>22930001>>22929988Honestly, I would rather follow his natural specialty path than the phoenix-path just because of how much more creative you can be with the applications.
>>22930082The chambered fist is akin to the mantis shrimp.It's a real animal that uses a high speed clubbing implement that has built in mechanisms to maximize striking speed, along with having hard shelling that's impact resistant... look them up if you'd like. You can hear their impacts outside of an aquarium, and they've been known to break their tanks.
>>22930126Also we can adapt secretly and keep it from the people in charge to give us an advantage
>>22930126It is a good trump card though. and we could change the form around.. who wants burning poison? or a salamander form?
>>22930142You mean that shrimp that slams its claw so fast that it actually creates a pocket of plasma, right? I've always that that thing was damn cool.>>22930160Yeah, if anything it could always be used as like an overlay of sorts to modify whatever adaptations are being used.
His bullheaded gloating of "knocking me down" has given me enough time to fix my ribs for the better... Quickening seems to be useful, very useful for swift shifting... though using both seems like it would be costly... Have I gotten stronger?Turning to me, Drake smiles, as his marks crawl, spreading over him in slow crescent-shaped waves, turning a soft orange again," I brought you down Denis. You should stay down before you get hurt again."I shake my head, and spit out some useless blood he brought out of me. All about bringing me down, eh? I'll make myself look good for Katie... "Yes, yes, you caught me. Though the chase continues. Can you keep playing is the question?"Drake's marks go red as he grinds his teeth, sparks fly off of them," You mock'n me Denis?! I'll... I'll break every bone in your body!"He advances again, and I bring up quickening another notch, being forced to heal so fast, I figured out that I can increase bloodflow too. It had put strain on my heart during that quick heal.. but it's fine now. He seems so much slower now. . .My right arm shifts as I feel the spring mechanism kick in and lock in chambered position. He flies past, attempting to catch me on surprise again. I butterfly step around a second time and crack him in the back of the neck. I feel the force go through, and he stumbles, but he retaliates with a backwards leg kick.. though once again clumsy, Stepping to the side, I dodge it. None of his attacks are especially fast or properly performed... I'd be a goner right now if he had good technique...He swings a backfist and I dig in to meet it with a quickened chamber blow. I feel his flesh give and he roars in pain... "Fuck you! Were you going easy on me before?!""I could say the same to you," I say, backing off a step. He's dirty, he'll play dirty tricks on me at that.
He drops to all fours like the other day, and turns to me, his scaling marks have finally reached his eyes, and seem to dye his sclera red with their glow."I will not, I won't let you win! Fuck that!"His marks begin to flash red and the color seems to melt over him," You! I won't be shown up!" His marks "cool" down and have changed into flame-like scales all over his form. They still rapidly flash red.He smiles, though seems as though he's getting worn out," Such... power... Heh..." He charges once more, displacing no sand and reaches out for my throught, I figure that I'll be able to quicken myself away... but I don't feel anything... I feel so... disconnected... he grabs me by the throat and smiles, I see that his marks have given his hair a red outline...> Struggle, reinforce, and break his grip.> Shift, it's got to work!> Quicken, c'mon!> Last card, time to burn Phoenix!> Write in.
Archiving now, for who was asking.
>>22930399[X] Shift, it's got to work!You know what we need? We need a stronger neck and a fuck ton of spikes. Let's do that.
>>22930405(It was me, and thank you. I hate it when a good quest doesn't get archived.)
>>22930399Can we shift the chambered fist to minimize surface area on the striking point to maximize penetrative force? If so do that and jam it right into his solar plexus and fire it, I don't care if we have to leave a giant gaping hole in his chest.Otherwise, >>22930423 sounds good.
>>22930448Why yes... Yes, and that'd be lovely.
>>22930423Can we do this but get the spikes to have toxins? Not deadly of course, but good enough to mess him up, oh how i love toxins.
>>22930480And you should, toxins are wonderful.
>>22930443Why thank you.Also, if you're interested I started a quest called dreamland last night. I couldn't keep going with it because I got "Can't fucking see" tired... But it should be good for an adventurous laugh tickle bone...
>>22930492>>22930480Main problem with toxins, Omar wouldn't necessarily know what he'd get... He's no poison expert. He'd need to use whatever the Flow gave him.
>>22930513That could end badly.... We don't exactly want to kill drake so ill go for just plain old ordinary spikes... However we should research into the Komodo Dragons toxins somehow
>>22930513That could be bad, we don't want to kill him, it's rude to kill people in sparring matches. We could however make the spikes barbed so they hurt more and pulling them out is painful.
I figure at this point, it's getting to life and death with his aggression.. I need to put him down for my own life... I focus on making my chambered arm more like a spike.. yet I still feel nothing... What is going on?! I feel so... empty..Drake starts to sweat heavily, as he glares into my eyes,"Here... here is... where I've got.. You..." His fingers tremble and he lets go of me...I feel the power of the Flow return to me... Drake pants on his knees, what exactly did he do?"Fuck... you... Denis! Don't... look down on... me like this..." He breaths heavily, trembling in the sand as his body betrays him.I see bloody spots appear from under his clothes, No don't tell me he... > Help him, call a medic.> Leave him there. This isn't your problem.> Ask Katie to look at him, explain to her what's going on.> Write in.
>>22930622[X] Help him, call a medic.He may be a dick, but we don't just watch someone bleed out after doing something quite that fucking stupid.
>>22930622>Help him, call a medicWe were once that stupid, and we weren't left hanging so we might as well pay this forward.
No! "Katie! Call someone! We need a medic, now!""Omar...?" She looks scared, though she smiles, she's unsettled. "What's happening to..." "Medic Katie! Now!" She runs off to get the nearest console.I kneel down and put my hands over the bloody spots, applying pressure as best I can..."De...nis?" He asks weakly with similar disgust in his voice as before."You fucked up, I did it too... Look. you'll be ok.. just stay.. Just stay with me, ok?" I say that, but the bleeding spots multiply... I can only cover so many...With a quick bit of Reinforcement, I tear off pieces of my undershirt and apply tourniquets to his arms and legs... He's long since lost consciousness, but he's still alive, I feel his heartbeat with that sense I picked uo...In short time, there are a team of medics in the room, shooing me away and picking him up and out of the sand. I don't bother to ask if he'll be ok, I know that he's likely knocking on death's door now...Katie walks up to me, and sees the blood," Hey, you tried to help him, yeah? You're doin the best you can, yeah? It was a... bad game, yeah?"I shake my head, I don't understand why she keeps calling this a game.. though it's not my fault that he went that far... is it? I put a knuckle into my temple. "I don't know, I just don't know...""I'll, I'll stay here if you need me, i'm worried about him too...> Tell her to leave, I just need to think right now.> Ask her to stay, but we should go somewhere else. (cafeteria, room, lobby, fitness center...)> Write in...
Oh, and the one dude downvoting Overhuman trend has continued... That's funny...
>>22930800Just sayin, only reason I care is because I don't want it pruned..Other than that, it's kind of funny.
>>22930786>[x] Ask her to stay, but we should go somewhere else. (fitness center)On the way/ when we get there we should fill her in on what happened to Drake.
>>22930786> Write in...Ask her to stay, just sit down, we don't feel like going anywhere right now."I don't understand, he did something stupid, outrageously stupid, just so that he could beat me, so he could kill me. I don't have any idea why he would hate me that much. He should have known that it wouldn't work, maybe he was banking on me dying before he did. He might die, I didn't like him, but I don't want him to die because of this.Sorry Katie, I don't really feel like playing a game with you right now." If she's moved in closer give her a hug.
Off topic... but I can imagine Renaissance giving out magical theory pamphlets upon entry... For invokers it'd warn specifically the highly negative effects of "overconsumption."
>>22930920Based on these, not far separated incidents...
>>22930800>>22930814Questfags actually get upset over downvotes?
>>22930933I just think it's funny since there's one guy that's apparently, and consistently not enjoyed it.
I look at the blood on my hands from trying to stop the bleeding, my eyes shift to the blood in the sand..."I ... I don't understand this..." I trail off, heading to the observation Deck to get away from the pits. Other fights that had taken place temporarily stopped when Drake pulled that stunt.. they now resume with his removal.Katie follows me, though I let her follow me because... Well... aside from Wallie, she's my best friend now..."Hey.. are you sure you're ok?" Her smile has ceased save for the barest hint of its existence.I look to her, frowning," I'm not sure, I'm just not sure... I... I was prepared to fight him... But..."Katie sits down next to me on the bench, putting a hand on my shoulder," He's my friend too.. sort of... What happened to him?""He took in too much... it's overconsumption fatigue.. however when it gets to be too great, it can destroy us slowly and surely... I experienced it myself, a week before magic theory.. While I was like that, I couldn't even use magic..." I recount, she slowly nods to the explanation, taking it all in."I didn't know you had it so tough.. I thought you just got tired or something...""We do, I think that's when it's extreme or something..."She scoots over after some silence and puts an arm around my waist.She says nothing, and simply stays right here, by my side...[Having trouble with my consciousness, have to formally end this session or I'll vanish before next post. Good night guys! We've got a girlie in Katie! And we'll see whether Drake id fine, with time... Thanks for reading tonight! Have a fine night.I'll likely be running Dreamland tomorrow night if you haven't checked it out. >>22911342 Still up... or http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22911342/ I just wanted a setting that's ridiculously fantasy and light hearted to contrast the setting of Overhuman... Hope to see you in either! ]
Also, while I'm on the verge of passing out, I'm coherent for some questions/comments if you have them... I know last time, or before last someone mentioned that this would make a bitchin' Tabletop RPG or somethin.
