>In the grim darkness of 1987, there are only street fights.On a warm summer's evening you find yourself watching the new World Warrior tournament in a lousy dive bar on the wrong side of a town that's all wrong sides. You down one cheap beer after another as you watch the spectacle, but the entire thing leaves a sour taste in your mouth. Too colorful. Too many silly rules. For a fighting competition that advertises 'real street fighting' you didn't see anyone pulling a knife to steal his opponent's last dollar, nobody having his friends hold you in place while he beats you bloody. You leave the stifling heat and noise of the bar behind and step into the night. For a second you breathe deep, invigorated by the cold and the quiet. The streets are full of the usual mix of loitering punks and pedestrians walking quickly and trying to ignore them. Standing out from the crowd - you almost think she doesn't belong in this run-down town at all - a pretty young waitress coming off of a late shift catches your eye. You give her a wave, she gives you an exhausted smile before disappearing down a side street.As she crosses out of sight a trio of punks detach themselves from a bus stop and follow her. You've got a bad feeling about this.
>Street Fighter QuestWait what.Did I go back in time?
Follow the punks and approach them friendly-like.
>>23262013I think this is the continuation he had promised a while ago.
Two minutes later you're pulling a punk's head down and kneeing him in the face again and again, carefully angling to keep his body between his friends and you. The biggest one - the one most obviously out of his mind on some designer drug - has pulled a knife. As your knee smashes the punk's face for the third time you feel him go limp. One down, two to go.>Who taught you to fight? And how?
>>23262059>Crazy paranoid ex-Israeli military uncle>Krav MagaLet's be brutal as fuck.
>>23262041Kinda? Side story set in the same late 80s in the same universe. I couldn't decide on a name (Street Fighter Quest 87/Street Fighter Quest Neon/Streets of Quest) so I just named it SFQ again. I'll go with whatever people are calling it by the end....oh, announcer, how I've missed you.
>>23262059Self Taught, Avenging Vishnu style.
>>23262059W. E. Fairnbairn taught us some of that hardcore Shanghai-wrecking Defendu shit.
>>23262093Seconding. Krav maga is one of the true street fighting styles.
>>23262059Obviously, it's a style that doesn't fuck around at all. While >>23262093 and >>23262151 are on the right track with krav maga, I'm partial to sambo myself. The Russian art of strikes, holds, and submissions taught by our crazy immigrant granddad from Russia is nothing to take lightly. After all, it becomes half of Zangief's style (along with pro wrestling) and Blue Mary's primary style.>>23262102Man I missed this. It's good to see you again, SFM. It's Eagle-guy.
>>23262195>SamboFuck yeah. I'm with this guy. It works for Zangief, it works for Blue Mary, it works for that guy from DoA I always just call Scuba Steve.
>>23262102Streets of Fighting. Totally best name.Also>80's as fuckFULL ON WRESTLEMANIABECOME THE HAGGAR
>>23262195Well hell, that works for me, as long as we can have some sort of crazy old relative who brutalized us through our youth to make us into a warrior.
I agree with the serious people, like >>23262223, >>23262195 and >>23262151, but on the other hand who can resist going full Haggar!>>23262228 ALL THE WAY BABY!

Even Tae Kwon Do has punches.
>>23262241Do you know the "five minutes of heaven?" Four dudes catch each of your limbs in a lock and go all out and hold it for five minutes. It's intense.
>>23262223scuba fucking steve... i remember that guy. some assassin bullshit but everyone fought in that fucking rediculus scuba gear.
>>23262264>>23262284It must be a real style, or we can pick our own? What is wrong with hokuto shinken and made heads explode?
>>23262142I would like to say that this: http://www.badassoftheweek.com/fairbairn.html>survived over 600 non-training street fights as a police officer
>>23262323the jade empire refferece was honestly only because i couldnt remember the name of the style from Yu Yu hakasho. the first spirit detective, the insane one, used it.
>>23262369I'm pretty sure killing your opponents will get you disqualified from most tournaments.
>>23262369This is Street Fighter. As ridiculous as some styles can be, it should still be within reason. Even Gen, the blind Chinese assassin that uses a Chinese variant of Ansatsuken that most closely resembles Hokuto Shin Ken, it's still a mix of mantis and crane-style kung fu.
Am I silly for simply suggesting Muay Thai?
Going to a high school with a gang problem taught you half of what you know about fighting. Your strange uncle from abroad taught you the other half. He claimed to be trained by 'the army.' When you asked him which army he made you do a hundred clap pushups. You remember Uncle smoking beside a campfire once (special training in he woods, he said. He just wanted someone to cook while he got drunk by the lake.) While you pushed bacon around a frying pan, trying to ignore the growing sense of dread every time you heard something in the darkness, he rolled a cigarette back and forth in his fingers. After a long silence - too long - he spoke up."Thing about fighting a man with knife, kid, is you don't wanna fight man with knife. You get bigger weapon.""That doesn't seem fair, uncle," Tiny Past You said."Fighting fair is for fools and dead men," he said. For a moment he looked as sad and bitter as you've ever seen. "You fight to win, Joe. I don't want to bury you because a man pulls a knife and you think you have to be fair."So now a thug's got a knife. You've got a thug and a headful of sambo. A quick application of leverage and you send the unconscious thug flying into the knife guy, tangling both up as they fall into a row of trash cans. Time to take down the last man standing before the knife user gets to his feet.>What's the gang that's paralyzing this city in its grip? Roll 1d100, best of the first five (or majority vote) wins it.
>>23262433No, no, Muay Thai would be my second choice. Nearly all my favorite STREET FIGHTAHS use it, from Adon to King to Zack.But this is STREETS OF RAGE, we need to be able to grapple and pile-drive people

Rolled 85>>23262436The vixens. A gang formed entirely by female-looking members who are either females or transgender males. It is said their leader is a pink transgirl who used to work to the original mad gear gang.
A few continuity notes - Haggar isn't mayor of Metro City yet. The events of SF1 are happening out there in the world, as are most early SNK villains, but they're all more or less in other parts of the world. The Karate Hobos haven't begun yet as a movement. Tatsuya is somewhere out there, younger and crazier than the mellowed-out father who appeared in SFQ, but most other characrters from that quest have yet to be born or are under five.>>23262195Good to see you again too! I liked most of the things you came up with for SFQ, it really wouldn't have been the same otherwise.>>23262501First roll only, sorry.
>>23262617It's 1987, I don't think Mad Gear is even around yet.
Rolled 16The Dread Lords of Funk.I think the name speaks for itself.
>>23262636It's true, though, that transgenders are still a thing, particularly in this era.
>>23262636Well, what about this:Their leader is a pink haired transgirl who used to be the bitch to a guy who was dreaming on creating a new gang to rule Metro City.Fuck, the idea is that most people recognize who we are talking about.
>>23262478The punk's got a Psycho Cog insignia on his (sleeveless, of course) jacket. You haven't been in this city long, but even you know they're the biggest street gang in town. Word is they've got more soldiers than the Carrion Crows, The Judges and the Waifus combined. God knows they own more cops and judges than every other gang combined.You catch a glimpse of the waitress clutching her purse to her chest, wide-eyed in fear. She's probably never seen violence like this up close before. The few seconds the fight has gone on haven't been long enough for her to fully process what's happening. Lucky for you the lead thug has barely had time to realize what's happened either.>Don't draw attention to her. Keep fighting.>Tell her to run and find a cop. We can beat these guys up, but we can't arrest them.
>>23262724And not a single mention of The French Ticklers.
>>23262724>Tell her to run and find a cop. We can beat these guys up, but we can't arrest them.Even if the thugs remember that their victim is there, they're too preoccupied with this new guy breaking people's arms.
>>23262724That is not fair!!!>>23262617>Rolled 85>The vixens.Who doesn't want to go into a rampage of womyn beating and misogyny galore?
>>23262724>Don't draw attention to her. Keep fighting.If they notice she runs to get the cops they will be on her like flies on the sugar. We can beat those dudes up, but protecting a civilian at the same time is a bit iffy.
>>23262754He said first 5. Maybe they'll come up later.
>>23262785Oh... ok.I am still a sad panda.I vote to send her to look for the cops. And keep beating the guys.
>>23262754It was after the first five. I like the high roll, though, they're going to make an appearance once things start to go Warriors-y.>>23262740The mysterious French brothers hired by other gangs as torturers, fanatically secretive about their methods which boil down to stuffing a rag in your mouth and tickling you for like five solid minutes? They keep too low a profile for someone like Joe to know about at this point.
Holy shit, this is glorious. I am a fool for having disregarded this before now.
Guys. This may be just because I'm watching The Warriors right now, but we can't dismantle this gang alone.We need to make a gang. We need to become a power player. We need to take them down and keep them down.
>>23262724We can't risk putting her in danger. We knock them out, then find a payphone.
>>23262847No one said we're dismantling the gang yet. We're just saving an innocent.
>>23262724Oh, yeah, just drop these assholes as fast as we can.
How corrupt are the police in this town?
>>23262724Tell her to run and find a cop. We're not guaranteed to win, she should get away in case we're stunned or something.
>>23262867I was thinking in the long term, there. At the moment tho', I say we don't draw any attention to the poor woman. If we lose, she's safe. If we win, she's safe. If we yell, we draw attention to her, and if we lose? She's got a fuckin' big bullseye on her.
Out of curiosity, who was fighting in the last tournament match we saw, before we left?
You decide not to draw any undue attention to this woman. If they beat you down maybe they'll be too busy kicking your unconscious body to remember she's there.The last thug is putting up his dukes, pure classic boxing stance. The knife-wielding punk has nearly managed to untangle himself from the unconscious one. Time's running out. While you're debating the wisdom of picking up a trash can and hurling it at the standing punk another figure emerges out of the shadows and swings a pipe into the punk's stomach. He motions you to the knife-wielding punk.>who's this mysterious vigilante who stepped in to help you?
>>23263123Ryu vs Geki. Joe left the bar shortly after the Ryu fireballed Geki down.>>23263224The original plan for the vigilante was to have him be a wannabe modern-day knight so I can slip in a Knights of the Round character alongside the Final Fight-styled protagonist. I'm open to community voting on the issue, though....Knights of the Round was awesome, wasn't it? Why hasn't that been rereleased?
>>23263224>>who's this mysterious vigilante who stepped in to help you?Billy Lee. Google double dragon if you don't who he is.
>>23263224Arthur PiperMaster of Pipe Action>>23263281I'm all for it
Rolled 30>>23263224W. E. Fairnbairn, or at least somebody pretending to be him.
>>23263224The Masked Karateman. Secretly the brother of the French Ticklers, and ex-GIGN, he fights with Savate and whatever he can get his hands on. He's come to take his brothers home to France, but hasn't caught them yet.
>>23262724May I come with a suggestion regarding the Carrion Crows? If not, disregard the following.The Carrion Crows began when the brothers Balaclava incurred a massive debt at the hand of power loan sharks. To have a chance of repaying it they recruited a handful of other unaffiliated street punks in need of protection from various established powers, and began a series of robberies, always taking or at least pretended to take name, number and address, in order to scare their powerless victims from squealing, exclusively targetting unorganized minorities and the elderly poor. Coming up with just enough to cover their asses, they realized that the scattered power of those prowling the streets with heavy debts hanging over them would make a formidable force if united under one banner and given direction. So they began a recruitment drive, starting out by organizing small cells and showing them how to painlessly get away with criminal acts to pay what they owed, and upon either success or failure introducing them to the larger growing family of bottom feeders without honour or reason other than to survive and cover your own ass in times of famine, by covering others in times of plenty. They avoid conflicts with other gangs, and will generally not claim turf, instead preferring to scavenge the areas between the streets established or contested borders.
>>23263281If you want him to be a wannabe knight, call him Solaire. He is wearing a T-shirt with a sun on it.I am in the mood for Jolly Cooperation.
>>23263224>Mysterious Vigilante? In our city? Must be the future-legend [s]HAGGAR[/s] Cody!
>>23263281It was rereleased in a PSP collection at some point. I blame the lack of further releases on Capcom being full of dicks.Also, your plan sounds so much better than my own bullshit.
Sir.Just Sir.Goes around in armor made from various bits of street rubbish (signs, shopping carts, etc.). The armor is actually made REALLY well.
>>23263281It's a little on the generic sideThe armor thing is pretty cool in all, but honestly it's kinda of lacklusterNOW THISTHIS IS THE REAL BEAT'EM UP
>>23263359And he is crazy as shit after reading too many comics and being beaten on the head after trying to stop a pair of common burglars. I vote for this.
>>23263359>>23263342Sir Solaire, plainly.
Rolled 49>>23263224Slayer, a batman meats punisher style viglantie, the city knows little of him but he has proven hes a capable fighter against plenty of gang members and is not scared to fight dirty. when losing hes known to pull things like police batons, a net gun, or even a stun gun to help him regain an advantage.
>>23262724suggestion for judges: they dress in judge dread style gear and while a VERY small gang, they are able to hold their territory because they are just VERY capable fighters. their strict requirements and zealot like behavior keep them from expanding their ranks or territory.
>>23263224Bruce Cheung. He is a waiter.
Your savior is some sort of homemade knight wielding a lead pipe like a sword. The armor is crude, but apparently effective - the man underneath looks none the worse for the wear even though the armor is dented. He's seen some shit. The weird thing is apart from the homemade and ren faire-quality armor he actually looks...normal? Well-dressed and successful, even.In any case, you're not gonna turn down perfectly good cooperation. You pick up the nearest trash can and smash the knife-wielding punk right in the fucking face with it before he manages to come to his feet. You can hear the steady rhythm of pipe against skull in the background."Are you well, miss?" the knight asks the waitress. She nods, still in a state of shock. "Excellent! I will leave you in the care of this fine gentleman, sir...""Joe," you say. You offer the knight your hand. He's got a solid handshake. "Thanks for the help back there.""It is a privilege to help fight the Cogs, an honor to aid a lady and a blessing to find a fellow warrior for good," he says. "The name's Saul. Have you decided what you're going to do next?">find a cop and get these guys arrested, I guess>leave the gangsters un-arrested, walk the waitress to her car>walk left to right, beat up everyone
>>23263224He should be an old man who's still into cheesy vigilante comics, living in a trailer in a dump and trying to escape his shitty everyday life. Trailer's full of toys and posters, and nobody even knows he lives there since he only sneaks out to kick ass. A bit prone to tearing up and acting childishly if questioned, but gung-ho when it comes to JUSTICE! An old man who means no harm, unless you're a dirty criminal - you'll have to convince him that you're not evil, should he find out you participate in illegal tournaments (if we do).
>leave the gangsters un-arrestedNothing's gonna happen to them anyway if we make a report. Better to walk the waitress to her car, explain that she should take another bus or route home for the next month or so.
>>23263671>leave the gangsters un-arrested, walk the waitress to her carMake sure she gets to safety first. Plus, considering the Cogs apparently own the cops and judges in this city, calling the cops probably won't help much. Better off just leaving them here to rot.
>>23263671>find a cop and get these guys arrested, I guess
>>23263671>>leave the gangsters un-arrested, walk the waitress to her carThey won't stay in jail for long enough to matter anyways. But kick them in the balls a few times first and give the woman a chance to stomp on their face before we walk her to the car.
>>23263671Even if we do not walk the waitress to the car, the knight guy would not leave her alone.
She could be a worthwhile contact. People talk around waiters and waitresses, especially during the night shift.
>>23263589I like it. And it'll give me an excuse to use some of the Dredd images I've been hoarding.>>23263386Never been able to find a way to play that. I just remember a Knights arcade machine at this youth center I used to go to in junior high, I fed it an unreasonable amount of quarters over those years.>>23263342Saul's vaguely european accent renders his name as "Sol." Funny enough, I actually started playing that game just a few weeks ago.
>>23263671>walk left to right, beat up everyone
>>23263671walk her to the car. see her off. walk back to the ally and start tying these thugs up until the knight leaves. kill them when the ally is clear.
>>23263589 they should totally have the quietest & safest part of town but have no police.
Saul gives you a fencing salute with the lead pipe and then disappears back into the shadows. Or at least tries to, he retreats a bit further into the alley and begins removing his armor and putting it into a briefcase. Maybe he really is a businessman or something."Could I walk you to your car, miss?" you ask the waitress. She nods and takes the arm you offer."You might want to consider an alternate route home for the next few weeks," you say. "Or at least don't cut through any more alleys.""I usually don't, it's just the lot at the diner was full," she says. "Thank you, for...for everything." "It was nothing," you say. You wish you could think of a cooler line. "I'm Joe, by the way.""Debbie," she says. Gives you that tired smile again. You like her tired smile.>ask for her number>just see her off. if you want to talk to her again you can stop in at the diner.>destroy her car to earn points!
>>23263996>just see her off. if you want to talk to her again you can stop in at the diner.No need to be creepy.>destroy the thugs' car to earn points!
>>23263996ask for her number AND THEN destroy her car for points. bitches love points.
>>23264020This. A thousand times this.
>>23263996DESTROY HER CAR TO- earn points? Not because it's funny?Seriously though, ask for her number. It's not like we have to make it a habit, but we're probably gonna need someone who isn't involved in this fighting shit to relax with from time to time. The smile helps.
>>23263996dont ask for her number. one of these cog fuckers will see and they will retaliate against us by going after her, and its will be our fault so we'll have to take care of it.make this shit look nonchalant. if we wanna see her again we can go to the diner. also kill the cogs when the knight is gone.
>>23264101We don't have to do it in their sight, you know.
Well, this died pretty quickly. Did everyone skip when they didn't get their favourite martial art or something?
For the briefest of moments you feel an uncontrollable urge to start smashing her car as quickly as possible. You take a few deep breaths to restrain yourself.She takes your silence in those moments to mean something else, you guess. She smiles and steps into her car. The moment is gone."I really, truly appreciate you saving me," she says. "You're like my knight in shining armor.""I...thanks," you say. "See you around.""Yeah. See you around," she says, then starts up the car. You kick yourself all the way back to the alley, only to find the three punks have disappeared. You shrug and walk on. It's not like they're gonna recognize your face.You head back to the bus stop, ready for the long journey home. You could have asked Debbie for a ride home, come to think of it. It might have come off as creepy? Aaaaargh. You settle in, ready to try ignoring the punks hanging around and the shitty music blaring from an old boombox."All right now, for all you boppers out there in the big city, all you street people with an ear for the action, I've been asked to relay a request from the Cogs. It's a missed connection, a Cog got a real hand from a man, roughly six feet tall in a white t-shirt and an old army jacket, goes by the name of Joe. He's asking all the Cogs and their affiliates in the city to keep an eye out for this man. Last seen in the Nerima neighborhood. Here's a hit with him in mind."The strains of Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive" begin playing. The punks around the bus stop - all dozen or so of them - slowly swivel towards you.You, the roughly six-foot man named Joe wearing a white t-shirt and a secondhand army jacket at a bus stop in the Nerima neighborhood.>what do?
>>23264342Isn't it obvious? Kick punk ass for points.
>>23264122i call bullshit on that. if we make any hint of wanting this chick they will see because plot device. >>23264311i know! i'm MAD AS HELL! i made the jade empire reference and the Russian shit was chosen. i'm still here. where did the rest of these sluts go?

>>23264342"Bring it on you fuckers. I just have one warning, first one to approach will be eating out of a straw for the rest of their life, and the second one's testicles are going into their eye sockets."

>>23264342Fucking leg it, but not at top speed - let the quickest one or ones catch up, turn and kick their asses, then keep running until the next catches up.
"I hate this song."
>>23264342 rip up plank on bench of bus stop, grin and wave them over.
>>23264342Let's break some legs
>>23264425this but make it like:#2 gets his testicles torn off,#1 will be eating #2's testicles through a straw.
>>23264530What about the rest 10 of them?
>>23264547We'll think of something. The point of this is to make sure nobody wants to be the first or second one to attack out of fear of what we'll do to them.
>>23264547Rinse and repeat. or, #3's head goes up #4's ass, #5's up his and so on.
>>23264615See, this (doesn't) work if you've got a reputation. These people aren't afraid of you already, so why would they be remotely intimidated?
>>23264342Scream your war cry (something loud and vulgar), then launch yourself bodily into their midst and unleash a wicked sambo-combo
>>23264663Still worth a shot, and it's a good first step to getting a reputation.
>>23264683this makes me wish we had chosen luchador as our style. we could just climb one and fucking play spiderman on the guys.
>>23264547#3 will need to number his bones.#4 Better start counting to 10 because#5 will be used in our "How long will it stay up in the air?" record break attempt#6 Needs to clench his teeth and ass because otherwise his face will be hammered so far in that he can lick his ass cheeks clean from all his blood#7 Better call his mom to let her hear her sons last words as man with functional balls, arms and spine#8 Will be shown all cardinal points at the same time#9 Is gonna be showed up #4 ass in such a way that he can both tickle his own and #4s brains at the same time from the inside#10 gets to choose from all the above#11 Will get us a soda pop like it already was here 5 minutes agoand #12 will die from snapped neck syndrome.
>>23264719just as long as we follow through
You stand and crack your knuckles. "First one of you steps against me is getting his balls torn off. Second one of you is gonna be eating those balls through a straw."The punks just look confused."Because his jaw will be broken. And...I'm gonna feed you his...""There's more than two of us," the one with the boombox says.You grab the boombox and smash it against his face, then book it. You can hear the punks behind you rallying, yelling.You have a good head start, but you're not going to run all the way home.>turn and face down the fastest chasers>duck into a side alley>keep running?
>>23264775>turn and face down the fastest chasersLeave a pile of twisted mangled bodies for the others to have to dodge and jump over.
>>23264342>"You're like my knight in shining armor."What, not the literal knight in actual armor?Also it's good to see you again SFM. It's not like I have to do well on these midterms anyway.
>>23264775Side alley, then climb up one of those fire safety stairs(this is the eighties, they are everywhere), take to the Rooftops and start area 2.
>>23264775http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMjDlYtXtuUDrop shit on themKeep them away with kicks and what not
>>23264775Duck into a narrow alley and force them to funnel through it. They lose their numbers advantage and we pummel them one by one.
>>23264830Vote for this.Also, if there are no stairs, we face them in a small corridor, 300 style.
>>23264845Just so long as we rip the first one's balls off and feed them to the second one.We can't go not making good on our threats, now. Otherwise what's the point of them?
>>23264830this, pick off as many as you can as they follow you up the fire escape due to them being forced into one on one fights.
>>23264775Hm, an alley could be helpful, because they'll think you're getting away, and stop running as a group, should they be doing that. Plus improvised weaponry and all that. On the other hand, risk of dead ends and running into more punks. Tough call, uh... Oh fuck it, face down the fastest runners. We don't know the alleys yet, we have no business being chased by locals in them.
>>23264775Duck into a side alley, wait until they pass, then grab the last one and disable. Begin hunting the group from behind.
>>23264898 we would need to break line of sight first. i mean even when cops chase you they only think of liner movement, just breaking line of site will save you.
>>23264775Oh, oh, I have a better plan: we try to search for and grab a baby or some stairs. We then turn around and tell them we don't want problems.Imagine the rest.
>>23264966I could see this turning very Jackie Chan.We've already got a nice, unassuming cute girl and a zany sidekick type.
>>23264411There were multiple people shooting for sambo, and I've never played Jade Empire. I'll see if they've got a copy at the used games place in my neighborhood, maybe a later fighter could be a JE reference.>>23264966Sorry, we're not playing this on God Mode.
>>23265051i'm not mad you didn't use my reference, i like the sambo thing better, it goes with the bear thing in my post, i'm mad as hell that people left. this is awesome!
You turn into the first sidestreet you see between two fast-food joints. Near the dead end of the alley you see a craps game going on - manned by a few unshaven white guys with Japanese high school uniforms. The Waifus. About halfway between you and the Waifus a middle-aged man in a McKing hat is stepping out of the restaurant with a bag of trash.You pivot and grab the first thug as he enters the alley. Nothing fancy, just redirecting his own momentum skull-first into a wall. The next fastest doesn't have enough reaction time to avoid the elbow you throw into his face. Two down, fourteen to go.>find a fire escape, get to the rooftops>head into the restaurant, try to lose your pursuers
Has anyone ever run a quest with two PCs?
>>23265127Rooftops is generaly a bad & dangerous placeSo let's go to the restaurant
>>23265127>find a fire escape, get to the rooftopsRooftops are best tops.
>Find a fire escape, get to the rooftops.We Street fighting man, not running away man.
>>23265127Throw one of the thugs into the Waifus and yell "COG ATTACK!" Initiate alley gang war.
>>23265127>RooftopsWe Jackie Chan now
>>23265127up the fire escape!Force them into one on one fights on the narrow landings. then at the top pick them off as they come up.
>>23265127The resturant. Plenty of chairs and tables to knock over to slow or separate them-
>>23265114It runs during what's afternoon for most players, and to be honest I never had the impression SFQ had that many players compared to most other quests. I always like the audience it does get, though, you guys tend to have cool taste in things and come up with great stuff.
>>23265187Okay, yeah, this. Yell "Onii-chan help kyaa~" in a girly voice and hide before they get a good look at you.
>>23265246Probably get a lot of UK players, since it's prime-4chan browsing time here in GMT.
Shout out "WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN LUM ISN'T THE BEST"Then proceed to get the hell out of Dodge while the Waifus get into it with the pursuing Cogs, hopefully.
>>23265246this is actually my first one but it seems like a kick ass quest thread so i tagged along. you're likely right about low activity, but i just kinda get disappointed when a good thread gets passed over or abandoned.
>>23265313Quests which attract too many posters can become horrible clusterfucks, this many people is just fine.
Beating on those two Cogs got the Waifus' attention. May as well try to use it as a distraction."THESE GUYS SAY ANIME IS FOR KIDS!" you shout. The waifus come to their feet, tossing aside the dice and piles of yen they were playing for. As one they charge for the mouth of the alley, shouting incomprehensible bad Japanese. Uncle taught you some Japanese (he taught you some of a lot of languages, said even if you don't speak if you should be able to recognize it) and what they're shouting seems to have nothing to do with that language.The Waifus go down fast. Almost instantly, actually, but they buy you enough time to scramble up a fire escape. They seem to take one or two cogs down. Now there are only eight or so you have to worry about.
>>23265420Stay on the fire escape for a second and kick off the first couple that try to climb up after us.
Just saying to everybody in this thread we should've picked taekwondo as our fighting style.
>>23265420Fight as you go up, using the higher ground to your advantage.
>>23265420lets get up that ladder and force them into a series of 1 on 1 fights on the platforms.those people did not last long... i think we can now assess things asus = saul > Cogs > ??? >Waifus
>>23265532It was 10 on 2 to be fair, and they took down 2 of the Cogs.The only thing I'm taking away from this is that the Waifus are crazy enough to fight 5 to 1 in defence of GLORIOUS NIPPON.
>>23265532Yup, 1 to 1 fight seems the way to go.How is the waifus went down so fast?
>>23265452Shit no, what if they catch us by the leg? Or stab us or someshit? Better to get up the roof quickly.
>>23265583Horribly outnumbered.Plus, since when were weaboos ever good a fighting?
>>23265420You scramble up to the top of the building. It's a cloudless night with a full moon, good for visibility. One of the Cogs manages to follow you. You give him a shoe to the face for his trouble, dropping him to the pavement below. Seven left.On the roof of this shitty McKing two fighters in full karate gis are facing off. Neither seems to notice you - not the enormous Japanese man in bright orange or the scruffy weirdo in a dirty gi that doesn't seem to have been washed...ever. "You sure you want to do this?" the man in orange asks."Your style is for weak little babies," the scruffy man says, drawing his hands back.The two come together in combat. Fast - much faster than you'd have thought two men their size can be. In only five moves the man in orange has the scruffy one on one knee, one hand drawn back to form a...what do you call it, knife hand? Spear hand? You should have paid more attention to all those karate movies your sister made you watch."KYOKUGEN IS STRONGEST!" he declares, ending the fight with a chop to the side of his opponent's head.
>>23265604Challenge him to a duel!!!
>>23265604Oh shitKarate Joe and Tatsuya?In their prime?
>>23265604"Hey! Those thugs backs there said Kyokugen sucks!"
>>23265604The man in orange finally notices you. "Oh, hey, I'm Tatsuya," he says. "You here for a challenge too? Give me a breather and I'll be right with you.""I've got some punks chasing me," you say."Hey, even better," he says. "You want to beat them up first or you want to beat them up while we fight?"Gears turn in your head. This guy's got no common sense but he's incredibly strong.>tell him we can fight after we take out the pursuers>NO BOTH AT ONCE>explain you've made a terrible mistake, head back down the ladder
>>23265638WE ARE NOT SO FUCKING READY FOR THIS! RUN!Or seek cover and see them tear through the cogs when they catch up.
>>23265671>NO BOTH AT ONCE
>>23265671..."Okay, just don't cripple me. This could be fun."BOTH AT ONCE
>>23265671>tell him we can fight after we take out the pursuers
>>23265671NO BOTH AT ONCE!We use hadouken to kill all of them.
>>23265671BOTH AT ONCEWE ARE HEADSTRONG. AND BY THAT I MEAN DUMB.
>>23265671Fight after taking out the pursuers.
>>23265671>NO BOTH AT ONCEWhy the hell not we've got all night.
>>23265671I think this guy overestimates us.Tell him we can take out the pursuers and he can figure out if he still wants to fight us based on how we do there.No point for him if we're not even in his league.
>>23265671>NO BOTH AT ONCELet do this.
>People passing up a chance to bro it up with Tatsuya and Karate JoeIt's like you people don't even lift.
>>23265127>Near the dead end of the alley you see a craps game going on - manned by a few unshaven white guys with Japanese high school uniforms>>23265580The first post suggest there were more than 2 of the waifus, but, hey, they went down defending Nippon.
>NO BOTH AT ONCEIt's more likely to make them interested in taking out the thugs, since you appear more interesting to get to know.
>>23265671How… how can we choose anything BUT both?
>>23265816There were four of them. They went down badly because they kind of suck at fighting unarmed. A Waifu with a katana is incredibly dangerous, but only if you let him finish his speech about how cool his sword is and how it's been folded over 10,000 times.
>went a bit later than I expected, this and the next one will be the last for the day"....both at once?" you ask in disbelief."Fine by me!" he says. He's on you like a freight train full of punches. The simile is bad but it's the best you can do while you're being assailed by punches. You deflect one or two and then start scrambling backwards to the edge of the roof. Two steps, then a block, then a third, duck under a kick, fourth step back you feel no ground under your feet.Fuck."WATCH IT," he shouts. A hand whips forward lightning fast and grabs you by the shirt, hurling you the other direction on the roof. You roll to a stop against the smelly guy. You hate heights, why did you even go onto the roof in the first place?By the sounds of bones breaking and fist on face it sounds like the cogs caught up with Tatsuya and are currently regretting it. You shake your head to clear it as you come to your feet. Tatsuya stands over seven Cogs and a stray Waifu."Heeeeyy, buddy. Sorry about that. Ready for round two?"You put up your fists. At least if this guy punches your head off your body you don't have to keep fighting your way through the entire city.>field too long, one sec
>>23265904If the anti-spam system is being a bitch, you can paste it to notepad and post a screenshot.
I NEED T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS OP!
You have to admit, even if you don't think you can beat this guy, the thought of fighting him is making your blood boil a little. You grin a little in spite of yourself you run at each other. He's big, but slow. Maybe if you can knock him out...A familiar pipe cleaves the air between you and Tatsuya a moment before impact. Saul, Knight of the Streets, stands between you two."There's no quarrel here that requires combat," he says. "Tatsuya and I have stood together against gang crime many times, and Joe here is on the side of righteousness as well."Tatsuya eyes you suspiciously, then drops his fighting stance and shrugs. "If Saul's fine with you I'm fine with you. Maybe we can have a friendly match some other time.""Probably not," you say. "Every Cog and affiliate in the city is after my head.""...all of them?" Saul asks, a glint in his eye."Even the Generals?" Tatsuya adds, a bloodthirsty grin spreading across his face. "Y-yeah, it was on the radio," you say."You thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?" Tatsuya asks Saul."That this might be our chance at last?" Saul says. "I really can't ask you guys to help me," you say. "They're not going to stop coming after me.""That's exactly what we both want," Saul says. He throws an arm around you and Tatsuya's shoulders, turning the three of you to face the night skyline. "Tonight we save this city or we die trying."
>>23266086in b4 Mayor Mike Haggar
>>23266086really haven't contributed to the thread since i have no time but keep up the good work SFM.i loved the first one!
>>23264898What is this, predator? Sounds extremely cool though. Also, Street fighting man, Glad to see you.
>>23266086Oh my gawd.Joe, Saul and Tatsuya side-scrolling across the city punching gang members.It's... it's beautiful.
We assembled our party! Good thing, it was dangerous to go alone. Quest will continue around 1pm 4chan time either tomorrow or the day after. Thanks for participating, everyone, it's always a pleasure. I'll be around to answer questions or whatnot for awhile, just not long enough to continue the quest tonight.
>>23266086WE STREET OF RAGE NOW!
What the fuck, this guy pummels us and then expects us to do nothing? Fuck that shit, we are going to get some fucking fightan done right there on that roof. Ain't fair to rile us up and then drop it like that. Saul can get in on it too if he wants.
>>23265874>That cover!Please, tell me this is not a real thing. God, how can someone pay money for such horrible art?
I hope the leader of the waifus has a suitably ridiculous title.Like Grandmaster Imouto.Or Shogun Onee-San.
>>23266198They uh pay for the system, not the art.
>>23266198Rest assured, the game is as terrible as the art.Which is a shame. Don't suppose anyone has any suggestions on what would actually make for a good modern street fighter type rpg system?
>>23266198It is apparently real! I haven't read it myself, though.>>23266212I think he just forces everyone to call him Senpai. The gangs and gang bosses are going to be handled the way they were when Ellie fought Mad Gear in the first SFQ, largely chosen on the fly by suggestions.>>23266107Final Fight came out in 89 according to Wikipedia, so I'm assuming Haggar was elected in either 88 or 89. He can't have been mayor for very long before Mad Gear tried forcing his hand by kidnapping his daughter as I see it.Also, what are we calling this version of the quest? Streets Fighter Quest 2? Neon? 87? Streets of Fighting? I'll leave it up to you guys, I can't make up my mind.
Street Fighter: Justice on the Streets.Street Fighter: Justice.Street Justice.Fight Justice.
>>23266270STREETS OF FIGHTING!It's a Threefer reference:Streets of FireStreet Fighting andStreets of Rage!Three awesome series in one title!
>>23266229>Don't suppose anyone has any suggestions on what would actually make for a good modern street fighter type rpg system?Play Legends of the Wulin. Just strip out the ancient china setting.Alternately look into Burn Legend from Shards of the Exalted Dream, which is basically a fixed-up version of the white-wolf game that cover is from snuck into an Exalted book.
>>23266270What about Street Knights?Fighter Knight?
>>23266354ALSO ART OF FIGHTINGTHERE IS ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN THIS.
>>23266270I like Streets of Fighting, though Street Fighter Quest: Neon also has a nice ring to it.
>>23266354>Streets of FireI forgot how good that movie is. That convinces me. Streets of Fighting it is. Or SFQ: Streets of Fighting if we have to tie it back to the original for some ungodly reason.>>23266400Only Saul really follows the knight template. Joe I see as more of a pure street fighter, not above fighting dirty to win. Tatsuya without the mellowing influence of his wife and daughter is pure martial arts violence caged in mortal form.
>>23266447SFQ: Streets of fighting will be.CAPCHA: runerson kyng. No, capcha, this quest is not running to become the kyng. It is already.
Wait wait, I got it.Street Fighter Quest: (The) Art of War.
Street Fighter Quest Neon seems best because I get the feeling Bimm-er, Billy and Jimmy will be showing up eventually.
>>23266447>That feel when your title is chosen cuz of your favourite movieFUCK YEAH.Now I'm double mad cuz it's not on Netflix no more.
Didn't participated in this one just here to say i love your quests good that you are back Street Fighting Man!
Somebody archive this. On a phone.
SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT I missed it. Fuck. Continuing my proud tradition of missing the first ep/10 minutes/instalment/whatever of everything I like.
