Back and feeling chipper, I hope people want to play this stillYou are Doctor Victor Von Doom, Ruler of Latveria, Rightful king of the world, Master wizard and genius scientist.You have recieved Mail! Letters have arrived from Magneto, Proffessor Xavier and the Wakandan Ministry of Foreign affairs.You are taking Morgan le Fey around Lake Doom, discussing the new school of magic you are buildingCurrently, you control 100 Doombots, lifelike automata of yourself, 75000 servo-guards, robots superior to a modern day soldier, and 100 time-bots, robots with experimental time based weaponry.In addition, you have constructed 100 Doomknights, More combat oriented variants of the Doombot, with superior weapons capabilities, and 100 silent stalkers, Stealth Robots designed for assassination You also control the "Battle CDC" a 100m tall doombot that houses 80 scientists working on cures for diseases.You are also assisted by 3 Latverian vampires, equipped in armour similar to your ownFurthermore, you control one Doombot converted to act like Mr Rogers, to entertain the children on your media network. More can be constructed from your worldwide network of FoundriesYou have several goals, including: Rescue mother from MephistoDefeat Reed Richards and friendsTake over the worldSteal Vibranium from WakandaEstablish other interplanetary mining coloniesEstablish further Broship with NamorShort term goals include:Don't spill spaghetti on MorganAttend UN conferenceTalk to mutant leaders
Rolled 20>>24491084You have recieved Mail! Letters have arrived from Magneto, Proffessor Xavier and the Wakandan Ministry of Foreign affairs.reading time tonight !! after some flattery for Le Fey
>>24491084We shall discuss the sad state of magical knowledge in the world of today, but that our institute shall let magic gain some respectability in the modern world.
>>24491084Fucking Goddamit OP i wanted sleep*Sigh* Glory to latraviaCan we see what Reed and Valeria are doing?
>>24491201Huh, crit. NeatYou flirt gently with her, and during your walk around the lake, she seems to be laughing at your jokes regardless of how funny they were, and she seems to be holding your hand, which you aren't sure how it happenedYou both share some spells, and discuss how the world differs to hers, as well as how magic seems to have fallen out of favour. She seems disappointed, as she expected the works to continue, so she could learn more. You are enjoying a pleasant picnic, when suddenly you are hit in the back of the head by a hoverboard! A small child goes flying into the lake, whilst you yourself are fine. Morgan is now infatuated with you! This may be of great use>>24491297I apologise sir. Our spy in the baxter building reports nothing but arguments and slammed doors since they returned
>>24491084Learn to subject line your shit, so people can filter you out.
>>24491431>Doom >Holding hands Oh my well looks like we shall go and save a Latravian citizen as Doom does>arguments and slammed doors since they returnedexcellent.....
>>24491431Float the child out of the lake, and examine the hoverboard. Ascertain the identity of the child, and give them a stern lecture on hoverboard safety.
>>24491478I did, though it seems to have gone missing during Captcha. Please feel free to filter my trip, in case this happens again
>>24491431dive in save the child, then proceed to lecture about safety.
>>24491515also may I enquire into the state of Valeria's Doombot?
Step 1: Wait for secret warStep 2: Go after BeyonderStep 3: Beat BeyonderStep 4: Obtain infinity gemsStep 5: Destroy all alien powers in the universeStep 6: Remove all superhuman and mutant beings from the human genepoolStep 7: Create utopia on EarthStep 8: Give fellow humans doctor dooms technologyStep 9: Destroy all universal powers or keep them for humanityStep 10: Allow humans to grow, guiding them gently towards the path of being an unstoppable forceGoal: Usher in an everlasting human utopia free from alien threats.This is how you Doctor Victor Von Doom. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcQ853ibg08
>>24491501The hoverboard is irreparably broken, though it is of Valeria's design, as you suspected. Stickers adorn the bottomYour head is fine, of courseThe Child is not far into the lake, though seems slightly injured by rocks. He would be roughly 11 by your estimatesYou bring him to the shore, then tell him that safety is paramount when using a hoverboard. It can easily lead to accidents, and that he should be wearing proper safety equipment."I'm sorry, Lord Doom, I didn't see you! I'll wear the helmet in future, I promise!"
>>24491575It is still functioning, and from the camera feeds I can see that it is in a pink room, with scattered broken machinery and a desk with Valeria's suitcase on.
>>24491609Use magic to heal the child.Lucia, have the boy's hoverboard replaced, and have him fitted for a helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads. Then send him on his way.Doom is ever merciful to his subjects who show proper fealty.
>>24491646Actually I was asking after his Internal systems *Cough* Namor's fucking your wife*cough*
>>24491646Alert me if Mr. Robot's status changes.
>>24491653Perhaps we should have DoomRogers dedicate his next show to proper sports safety?
>>24491653>>24491653yes yes yes >>24491710also good
>>24491653Your magic heals the boy, and he swears he feels 2 inches taller. You tell him to head to the castle and get a replacement when he can, and that the hoverboard will be delivered should he be unable to make it"Winning hearts and minds, I see. I think even King Arthur would have the boy beaten if he crashed into him on one of those... things">>24491693Of course, sir>>24491688He has not yet had that attempted, though I can have him say it whenever Richards speaks to it.>>24491710I believe that would be an excellent idea, as the hoverboards are very popular currently
>>24491796Only if Reed or other's beside Valeria decide to pry into her [Valeria's] PrivacyThe Doomrogers idea has my full support
>>24491796"The boy's parents shall see to his punishment well enough."We shall have DoomRogers dedicate his next show to proper safety gear when playing sports, especially that of hoverboards. But do not neglect the wearing of bicycle helmets.
>>24491871As funny as "Namor's fucking your wife" is, wouldn't that potentially injure our relationship with Susan and Namor?Perhaps we should change the message to "You are small-time, Richards, now and always".
>>24491871>>24491911The show will air shortly. I have informed shopkeepers to stock up on safety equipment also. On your way back to the castle, Valeria enters her room and begins crying into her pillow. From the infra red vision, the rest of the fantastic 4 are sat around a table
>>24491963>Valeria cryingThis will not stand!Mr. Robot is still a Doombot; he shall ask Valeria who is the foe that has made her cry, and must therefore answer to the Robot Twin Fists of Justice.
>>24492012"They say that they have to dismantle you, and that I can't keep the armour! They're so unfair!"
>>24492068This could prove to be either a blessing or a curse however I think our next few minutes may require some tactPrehaps we should have the bot confront the FF about said dissmantlment and cite that logically the Doombot can bring no harm to Valeria due to DOOMS superior programming skills
>>24492068>>24492156Perhaps. But first, maybe we should come up with a contingency plan.Have Mr. Robot ask if Valeria can construct another body or mainframe that can house Mr. Robot's memory core and central processor.If her parents will not allow her to keep Mr. Robot in his original form, perhaps she can hide him away where he can still protect her even in a limited capacity.
>>24492156>>24492183" I guess I could. I doubt daddy would miss another D: drive, and I have some stuff over there that could work. Thanks, Mr Robot!"You have arrived at your castle. I have found another potential teacher: A Syrian pyromancerSo far we have Ms le fey as headmaster, as well as a Divinations teacher, a Cryomancer, a demonologist and a conjurations expert. Would you like me to find any specific subject teacher?
>>24492275Extend a teaching position offer to the pyromancer.See if there are any enchanters who meet our requirements for a teaching position. Also, see if there are any still-practicing geomancers from China, and either an astrologist or shaman from Japan.Now that we back at our castle, we must attend to the letters that have arrived.
>>24492275I thought DOOM was going to be headmaster, oh well if it takes up to much time i guess Morganna can be headmistress.
>>24492275lets get some one good with creation, alchemy, or some protection magic?
>>24492365Of course, sir. I shall pack my warmest Cyber-hatDear VictorI would be most interested in your offer about establishing a new home for mutants. Latveria is a proud and prosperous nation, and you run it well, as of late. I understand you lack a native mutant populace, so I shall hope you will be willing to accommodate certain individuals... needsI hope that this goes well, as I know you to be a man of honor, so I shall be attending.Yours truly, Magneto
>>24492365Dear DoomThis invitation seems somewhat out of character for you, though against my better instincts I shall attend. I should hope that you could be considered trustworty, as you seem to be attempting to redeem yourself of late, with the exception of kidnapping Reed Richards' daughter, of course. We have not been faring well in America of late, and Whilst you may lack any native mutants, I believe a new home may help my peopleYours, Proffessor Charles Xavier
>>24492534GIVE THEM WHATEVER THEY NEED STAT hell even having magneto on our side is a goddamn boon
>>24492628>>24492534Make whatever accommodations are required. Xavier will undoubtedly bring along Cyclops, Wolverine, and Beast.Whatever we must endure, to force Wolverine into the situation pictured left is worth it.
>>24492628go with Xavier>Then flirt with StormYes that actually happened in a comic
>>24492365Dear Doctor Victor Von DoomWakanda regrets to inform you that we must decline your invitation to a meeting. Our nations are too different, and have seen too much from you that we do not agree with. We wish you the best of luck in your endeavour, and may the Panther god be with you
>>24492628"Dear Xavier,I assure you that my intentions are without ulterior motives. My people have suffered under the yoke of oppression, and seeing history repeated again against mutants, I cannot simply stand by and watch.And upon my honor, the stories of Valeria's kidnapping are grossly exaggerated. I merely invited my god-daughter for a visit to Latveria while her parents went on a cruise to Mars. I simply do not understand why Richards is so convinced that I would stoop so low.Yours truly, Dr. Victor von Doom
>>24492745Unfortunate that Wakanda declined.We are still considering floating the proposition that since our Mars colonies are sovereign Latverian territory, that no one else on Earth can claim ownership of Mars, that we create a joint Genosha-Latveria-Xavier settlement on Mars, linked back to Earth via DoomPortals, as a sanctuary and new homeland for mutants, correct?
Of course. I have arranged a room for all of them, as befits each expected guest. They shall arrive in a few days time. There is a UN conference tomorrow, and you have requested a seat next to the British Delegate. Would you like to attend?
>>24492820We shall attend. When is the Atlantis Tournament that Namor is hosting expected to begin?It would be uncouth of us to not attend after he personally invited us.
>>24492820>she should>she willFuck, I could read Doom comics all day.
>>24492817Yes, I believe that was the plan. The colonies have been expanding the Hydroponic farms in anticipation>>244928589 days away. You are not in danger of missing it. There would most likely be lots of things to prepare/
>>24492877>There would most likely be lots of things to prepareHave you found the waterproof cloak yet?
>>24492877we should spend the better part of a week and a few hundred million dollars updating our doom bots, so Richards gets nothing of use for destroying Mr.robot.
>>24492924Your cape wardrobe is extensive, sir, but yesI believe a gift for Namor would be customary, as well.
>>24492969this is a good idea.>>24492982well he like the laptop, lets get him a really nice one fast and powerful like a gold clam shell with his crest on one side, water proof exct.... hell open a factory to start making laptops for Atlantes check with the one guy from the magic school make sure we get the right power cord for them.
>>24492969Mr Robot is a stripped down version at any rate, as he has been modified by valeria over the 2 months that she was with you quite heavily
>>24492982>gift for NamorYes. We must come up with a gift befitting both Namor's noble station, and our own brilliance.
>>24493072o never mind>>24493078 well he like the laptop, lets get him a really nice one fast and powerful like a gold clam shell with his crest on one side, water proof exct....hell open a factory to start making laptops for Atlantes check with the one guy from the magic school make sure we get the right power cord for them.
Polite reminder to put "Quest" in your quest thread subject field
>>24493114>>24493062The laptop is a nice idea, but we should ask the Atlantean mage if there's even a market for them. Perhaps what games or applications that Namor is fond of, and install them on the gift laptop.
>>24493114>>24493177"I am not sure. Whilst most have some animosity towards the surface world, they would most likely accept them, as you have become a subject of interest to King Namor, They would be used, yes. Though I am unsure as to what My king likes, as he did not entrust me with such matters. You could ask him on the day, of course"
>>24493247So let's not get too hasty with setting up a factory.We shall create a custom laptop, waterproof, with a micro-fusion battery rated to last 250 years. With more processing power and memory storage than the previous one, and a built-in webcam and touch screen.The case shall resemble a clam shell, be colored gold, and have his crest on the top.How big would such a device be?
>>24493305>>2449330518 inch ? its big but Namora has super strength we could take it up to 20-22 inch and still be fine
>>24493305It depends, sir. If it's for a standard 15.6 inch 1080p screen with the custom detailing it should be roughly 18 inches long
Shall I progress to the UN meeting if that is Ok with everyone?
>>24493408Yes, after the gift for Namor is prepared.
>>24493408yea thats fine.>>24493359this size huge screen Namora is super strong make it a 20 inch screen so the case will probable be like25- 26 ish inches
>>24493420Of course, sir. There is of course the half finished Robot Kraken you started to build when you got drunk one night
>>24493484we will use it to pull a flying chariot also lets build a flying chariot, to go in. see if Le Fay wants to go.
>>24492858Yes, better to speak to him as one dignified ruler to another.>>24493078>>24493305Indeed, a practical yet elegantly appointed gift.
>>24493519>>24493519I do not wish to argue with my master of course, but your concept originally called for a water based design. This can be changed, I'm sure
>>24493671yea water chariot that what I meant
>>24493695That would certainly be a way to arrive in style.Is the gift of a laptop agreed?
>>24493671Fool! It must both fly and operate underwater seemlessly! So says Doom!
>>24493752Very well sir. As an apoolgy, I shall work on completing it whilst you slumber. Should it be incomplete, I shall dismantle myselfMr Robot has stopped transmitting
>>24493795Wait shit what were it's last audio and visual recordings? Also can we skip up to the Un meeting?
>>24493835I know it was being dis-assembled by valeria but i want to be sure
>>24493736yes yes >>24493795don't be so hasty I will look over you work when I awake then decide what to do ( we fix what need fixing using her as an assent till it is done. no wasting bots by having them dismantle them selves.)
>>24493835It seems Valeria Disconnected it's head whist Richards was attempting to talk to her through the door.A ship has launched from the Baxter BuildingYou arrive at the UN Headquarters in New York in your usual regal style. You approach the receptionist, who gives you your badge and directs you to the main auditoriumYou are sat next to the British Ambassador, Sir Chauncey Peppertooth, who extends a hand for you to shake
>>24493955shake his hand ( not too firmly, we don't want to crush him) proceed with small talk.
>>24493955>who extends a hand for you to shakeHandshakes are in fashion among the English aristocracy, are they?We shall deign to shake his hand.
>>24493955Anychance we could find out whats in the ship that launched?>>24494006This
>>24494006>>24494048Covertly scan him for Skrull while we shake his hand as well.>>24493955Track the ship.
After he tries to out firm grip you, you move on to matters of little import, such as his family, or the weather, which is bad in England at the moment. Shortly, after all ambassadors are seated, the first issues are raised.Should the UN step in to assist in Syria?Should the Skrull threat be taken more seriously? Did SHIELD overstep its boundaries in assassinating the Prime minister of Serbia, who as it turned out, wasn't a Skrull after all?>>24494048I cannot say, though I will investigate further. Perhaps Morgan will be able to scy for you >>24494124He is not a skrull, though you identify his hair is not his own>>24493939Whilst I would provide excellent parts for the robot, it may impede my duties somewhat.
>>24494197>UN to SyriaTheir use of chemical weapons is a disgrace to the international community, and there should a response.>Skrull threatThere is plenty of evidence that the Skrull Empire will not normalize relations with Earth, so we must respond.>SHIELD screwing upThey most certainly did overstep their bounds. Not even DOOM would slay another world leader without the proper precautions that the one he kills is the right one.
>>24494197Bring up the grosa lack of regard for International law by both S.H.I.E.L.D and the FF with the evidence of our attempts to get them to comply to Int.law.Call S.H.I.E.L.D out on its bullshit destablizing of shit in latravia's hemosphere, offer to vaguley assist in the Intervention of Syria and Promote the idea of the skrulls being a threat
>>24494334>>24494344You place your votes, and offer your support in all circumstances that would permit it. Whilst most say that you have assisted sufficiently in the matter of the skrulls by providing the scanners, they would be most grateful if you could assist in Syria. Your robots are immune to their chemical weapons, of course, which would minimise casualtiesWhen it is your turn, you bring up the matter of the fantastic 4 and SHIELD not requesting clearance to land, then arriving at your home and threatening you, which compounds the matter of SHIELD's lack of controlOnce the votes are tallied, SHIELD will have much more restrictive management, and the skrulls will be dealt with more severely
>>24494492>SHIELD will have much more restrictive management, and the skrulls will be dealt with more severelyExcellent. None shall cross Doom without recompense.
>>24494492Excellent all according to the non existant plan.Any chance we have discovered who or what is on that ship?
>>24494585>>24494586Excellent Mind.>Doom: Why yes, I do have an excellent mind, kind of you to say so.
>>24494492>send Servo-Guards to Syria as UN PeacekeepersDoom shall grant this request, being a responsible sovereign leader of a legitimate state that values its position in the international community.10,000 Servo-Guards, under the command of 10 Doombots, with 10 Doomknights and 10 Stalkers as support, shall descend upon Syria to secure their chemical weapons, and help to distribute food and medical aid to the suffering civilian populace.
>>24494586Yes, It appears to be Valeria. The other chair has the head of Mr Robot carefully strapped inNo other ships have launched, thus it appears she snuck out
>>24494642We shall take no action unless Valeria enters Latveria airspace. No doubt Richards will find some way to blame Valeria's rebellious streak on our meddling.
>>24494621Very well. Shall I delegate distribution of the troops to the Doombots, or would you like to take direct control?
>>24494642Oh Boy time to troll the Richards again lets actually get our legal on
>>24494673Which we in absoloutly no way magical,technical or psychologically impose on her
>>24494679Troop distribution shall be handled by the Doombots, who will abide by our UN mandate.We are in Syria to secure their chemical weapons, to prevent them from being used against civilian populations and from falling into the hands of terrorists.We will distribute international aid to civilians.We will NOT aid the rebels or the army in any military action; we will, however, provide neutral medical aid.We WILL take action to protect the lives of civilians from any military action by the rebels or the army, but will only act in a reactive manner. We will not take pre-emptive action. In order to carry these actions out, we will employ whatever force is necessary.Preferably by employing massed stun beams and sorting combatants out later.
Is Valeria dismantling the Doom bot? Wasn't it internally programmed to say "Namor is fucking your wife."? Umm.... guys?
>>24494934Yes, Valeria dismantled Mr. Robot.Yes, it was programmed to say something when its memory core is tampered with.Also, someone did see a problem with it and moved to have the message changed >>24491920
>>24494934If anyone BUT valeria tried that is what would be said
>>24494962Oh ok, thanks for clearing that up.
Rolled 19, 9, 9 = 37>>24494819Yes, sir. I shall have medical equipment prepared for transport, and I shall have the flying Servoguards sent over.It seems Valeria has stopped in France, whilst another ship has launched from the Baxter building.When you return home, it would seem Morgan is sat on your throne, reading and drinking something fizzy
>>24494642Hm, this may also indicate that she disabled certain security feeds at the Baxter Building.Hm.
>>24495078That.. is not her place to sit.
Rolled 8, 11, 5 = 24>>24495109It would seem so. As she took the head off Mr Robot, RIchards was at her door. She may have escaped through vents>>24495144"Why do you only have one chair in the room then"
>>24495078Get off my throne you presumtous woman
>>24495078>>24495144Greet her warmly, gently drawing her away from our throne. Then firmly state that it is to DOOM that throne belongs. Soften the the blow by matter-of-factly noting that there is room for another throne, were Doom decide upon someone worthy to share the dais.
>>24495215>MorganBecause it is the throne room, and that is my throne.
>>24495215My Dear Madame, there is one, but only the most magical of beings can see it.
>>24495215We can work the infatuation angle.Something curt that implies that we have yet to meet a woman who has proven herself worthy of the honor of being our Queen.If she's interested, that ought to get her doing something useful.
>>24495236>>24495236yes yes yes, she is bold, I like it.
Rolled 19, 11, 10 = 40>>24495220>>24495236>>24495252>>24495254"Guess I'll make do with one of those folding chairs for now then. Also, you should read this, and the kitchen is out of Fanta, I think it's called"She hands you a book on Scrying. Perhaps as a subtle jab
>>24495306Have the kitchen order more Fanta, of various flavors.And we shall accept the book, and begin study. Only a fool refuses to acknowledge their own weaknesses. A great one understands them, and eliminates them.
>>24495109>>24495215This opportunity should be taken advantage of. F4 out of the building with possible security compromises already.Do we has a Stealth Bot with us here on our UN visit, and/or any interesting catspaws to work mischief through upon Reed's home?
>>24495359No, Richards will undoubtedly already be expecting us to try something. We will not fall into his expectations. Instead, we will study the book on Scrying, and have the castle prepare for our international guests.
Rolled 16, 5, 15 = 36>>24495359I shall acquire one bottle of each flavor, which may take some time>>24495343Whilst you could send one, you also have Oleg, the janitor of the Baxter building in your employ
>>24495359Mischief yes.Wanton destruction I think notWe dont want to move against the F4 in anything other than verbal/lega/Psychological manner as we are trying to maintain a Reputation worthy of DOOOM!!
>>24495398>which may take some timeI find it difficult to believe that Fanta, a company that unashamedly sold its products to Nazi Germany, would have trouble selling its wares to DOOM.
>>24495078Do we know what caused Valeria to stop? If it looks like "mechanical trouble" we could go and offer our assistance. This would give us a chance to probably say something condescending to Richards (when he undoubtedly shows up in the second ship), as is our want.And when he shows up, if its true that Valeria tried to escape on the DL, we should be calmly explaining to Valeria that it is important to not worry her parents, because of...you know...the love...Anything that we can do to make us look reasonable, and Richards look like a jackass, and to make it clear to Valeria that its her parents doing this to her. This will instill the necessary resentment.
Rolled 20, 15, 8 = 43The book proves useful, and before long, you find yourself tapping into random homes in Latveria to see if everyone still likes you A great feast is being prepared, and the steps now have a ramp nearby.>>24495455It is more the sheer quantity of different flavours, sirhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_availability_of_FantaValeria has resumed her travels. It seemed she merely stopped for lunch
>>24495343>>24495343agreed also lets send something to keep track of our god daughter France is a dangerous place for a girl her age.(not a doombot) >>doom gets phone call from france "there coming for me uncle doom">>I have a very particular set of skills
>>24495522Difficult to acquire? Than perhaps DOOM shall consider allowing a bottling plant to be constructed? We might want to consider allowing some outside companies to open inside of our borders. Opening ourselves to limited trade would improve our international image, provide some measure of employment, and increase the standard of living. All of this under strict Latverian regulations of course.Any chance the second ship arrives before Valeria gets into our airspace?
Shit.I kinda wish we didn't get Val to disconnect the Doombot.A recording of the FF reacting to "Namor is fucking your wife" would be a perfect gift for Namor.Sue blushing, Reed aghast/infuriated, Johnny disappointing, Ben angry. He would have loved it.
Rolled 13, 9, 13 = 35>>24495539Thankfully she is already in the air. Sorry folks, stats test on monday, so this'll be it until monday night. Have fun!
>>24495652Actually, scrap all that. Industrial espionage. DOOM COLA. And we can use super science to improve on the formula. We can start doing some cultural imperialism.
>>24491583Pretty much what we've been working on. But we passed up infinity gems for time travel and spoiling our goddaughter.
>>24495652They are roughly 2 hours apart. You may attempt to hail both soon thoughIt may be unlikely that it would work, though. We have such a high minimum wage, that it may discourage factories>>24495653That he would, sir
>>24495652What is it with you guys and factories? Namor wants a present? I WILL BUILD A FACTORY FOR THE PRESENTWe're out of fanta. I WILL BUILD A FACTORY FOR THE FANTAValeria's coming. I WILL BUILD A FACTORY/SCHOOL FOR THE VALERIA
>>24495744Hail them when they approach anyway just so we can wrangle them more legally in the international courtAlso give namor the original doombot recording(? Shit i dunnp its fucking 8am over here)
>>24495744"Bah, factories are not for Latverians. We've an army of robots at our disposal. Full automation is all but necessary.It is also time our magical institution be made to do something of use. Imbue this 'cola' with some minor cantrips to improve taste."
>>24495804I laughed. But seriously, capable infrastructure is key to enhancing the power of Latveria.Creating a market for export goods will increase our wealth, enhance our image, and provide long term assets which we can exploit. We can beat our plows into swords if need be.
>>24495899But you just got your sword sent from Phobos. It is made of Anti-metalBut yes, goodnight guys. It's been good. I've archived it, so discuss anything you want, and I'll read it in the morning
>>24495899We already have factories in Latveria; where do you think our robots come from? And these factories producing one-off products are a waste of resources since they produce items which have a limited market.
>>24495899But we already have swords that can plow the ground BETTER than a plow surely my fellow Latravian has heard of the DOOMPLOUGH!!!!
>>24495899Seriously, we have an infrastructure rivaling any first world nation, our average tech level is equivalent to Japan, our minimum wage makes Iceland look like a nation of paupers.
>>24495960>>24495981I know, but I'm more thinking about creating an international market for Latverian goods. Cultural imperialism. If we can churn out enough stuff and make the trade relationship lucrative enough, other countries will be hesitant to use force against us because they would be effectively shooting themselves in the foot.It works for the same reason that the US and China will never go to war - we're too dependent on each other for the stuff we want, and there's too much money that would get burned in the process.Such international strategies provide our nation with another barrier to conflict when something goes down.Of course if your contention is that making a factory for DOOM COLA is stupid because the market is over saturated, I get that. While DOOM could obviously dominate any market that he chooses, we could discuss finding something that fits the image and brand of "New, Totally won't try to murder all of you I swear, Latveria."
>>24496108So we need something that people rely on? We already have the training robot company going up, maybe it could expand to domestic robots?
>>24496108You....I like you
Is Richards seriously trying to enter our country again?Tie the FF up in miles of red tape while we get Valeria back. Bury them in EU sanctions while we get Valeria to have funEnd in a climatic encounter with Richards, where we taunt the shit out of him.
>>24495804I WILL BUILD A FACTORY FOR MY MOVING SIDES
>>24496162Might work. We could patch them to be surveillance all around the globe, and to respond to orders when we decide to conquer the planet.Though maybe something less capital intensive so we can proliferate through all of the socio-economic classes. I'm going to list some suggestions.Advanced medical technology and medical devices, durable consumer goods like household appliances, renewable energy tech, consumer electronics, etc.Also, we need to export a national delicacy. Fastest way to a man's heart...
>>24496108Getting into the beverages market is stupid, for a variety of reasons, with market over-saturation only being one of them. We are already becoming a major supplier of rare-earth metals due to our space mining program, and so we should leverage that advantage.We can start chip foundries and LED manufacturing plants to become a major exporter of high-quality consumer electronics, especially of computer monitors, TV's, and computer components.With our DoomPortals and Skrull-derived spacecraft, we can set up a toxic waste processing and disposal station near Mercury, using the abundant solar power to help process toxic waste into useful materials in a completely automated and clean facility well away from Earth.We would become indispensable to many nations, especially China, by taking care of their industrial waste and cleaning up their cities.And this is not cultural imperialism, this is economic imperialism.
>>24496162>>24496108Don't find a market. Make one. Nobody knew they needed a car until Henry Ford shoved them down everyone's throats. Nobody knew they needed bottled water or coca cola or cigarettes or deodorant or shampoo or refrigerators or properly sized clothing, or windshield wipers or personal computers or phones, until the respective companies MADE THEM HAPPEN. Doom should not merely mimic and improve on existing markets. Doom, and to a lesser extent fools like Richards and Stark, specialize in new, exotic technologies most commoners cannot imagine ever actually owning. Like the hoverboard. So, Doom should create new products, original products, things commoners don't know they don't have but would want if they were available.
>>24496349Well I think it should certainly involve Valeria's new sauce somewhere in it
>>24496384You're right.We can do cultural imperialism through our entertainment industry. We should subsidize our film industry and get our most prominent artists out into the international film festival circuit. We don't necessarily have to target western countries - as long as half the world thinks our country is awesome I don't particularly care which half. Though anything with a sufficient amount of explosions should work for American audiences.
>>24496499Separate market. That's Valeria's. I think we actually forfeited out claim to it so she could reap all the benefits of it.
>>24496443What about going meta and writing comics? I don't know how they work in this universe though
>>24496530Damn. Well, I honestly have no idea about eastern European cuisine. Potatoes?
>>24496656Latveria may already have a traditional cuisine. Or we can have our personal chefs work towards creating one. We could simply use DOOM's favorite dish, and amp it up with the use of super science to optimize flavor. Or magic. Either way.
>>24496566I don't think they do really well. I'd say stick with movies. What if we modified our forcefield to act as cushions? We could replace seatbelts and airbags entirely. Set it up with a crude AI to automatically activate and adjust to people's height and weight. We could set one of our colonies on Mars up as a penal colony, have every country export their non-super criminals to us. We use advances teaching methods to rehabilitate and educate the convicts into perfect citizens of Doom. When their sentence is complete we either send them home cured if all anti-social tendencies, or we allow them to pledge fealty and become Latverians on Mars. Can we afford to purchase one of the buildings in New York's Times Square? If so, we should do so. Set up a permanent Doomportal Hub leadin from there to Latveria, Tokyo, London, Belgium, Madrid, San Fransisco, Seattle, Chcago, New Orleans, Hong Kong, Dubai, every major city on Earth. Maybe even one to our largest Mars colony. We just put a HUGE dent in the airline industry. They've never had major competition, and we just rendered them obsolete. We can charge for passage, but since it's impossible to hijack a doomportal, we have minimal safety concerns. Operate it like a subway station.
>>24496510Don't forget sappy romances. Actually, we should do a pseudo-documentary/autobographical film. Like the one about the queen of england or Pirates of Silicon Valley. Make it really low-key, but hit all the important formative moments of our life. Mother trying to protect our tribe and losing her soul to mephistoUs studying hard and mastering everythingUs overthrowing the old dictatorUs asking Richards for help and being rejected, leading to the accidentUs accepting and diving into our responsibilitiesUs fighting tyrants and monstersUs being attacked without (much) provocation by 'heroes' (leave Cap mostly out, but lampoon stark, richards, thor, and spiderman)Us time-travelling to MorganUs exposing the Skrull threatEnd it all with us sitting on the throne looking as tired as possible. Enough action for american audiences, and i should generate a lot of sympathy internationally, plus it puts richards and our other rivals on the defensive in the public eye. We're willing to expose ourselves to scrutiny. What are they hiding?
>>24497835Naw man.Spidey is cool. Leave Spidey out of this.
We really should push the UN for a seat on the security council. We've proven that we have the planet's best interests at heart. We've proven that we know more about what goes on in the world than either the UN or Shield. If necessary, point out that Shield has been aware of Skrull infiltration since the 70's and remained silent. We only exposed it because we had developed countermeasures to detect them so there wouldn't be widespread panic and witch hunts. We're already a step ahead of Shield, which refuses to listen to us due to a mix of pre-existing prejudice against us incited by our enemies, and rampant paranoia. The paranoia we condone, even encourage, because it keeps them on their toes, but we need to wipe away the slander and lies surrounding us so they can see that we are trying to help survive an ever-changing and dangerous universe.
>>24498170Maybe. He did tell us off that one time. But we owed him for protecting us, so we're even. Yeah, we can let spidey off the hook.
>>24498170>>24498536agreed. Spidey is a bro
What do we do to prove that we didn't kidnap Valeria? No doubt Richards will fabricate a lie, such as us brainwashing her, or hacking the ship.
>>24498629Give her a stern talking to about scaring her mother and asking permission before borrowing other people's flying machines, and about filing flight plans. Establish a Doomportal back to her room at the Baxter Building and carry her home and make her apologize to her mother. When Reed shows up at Castle Doom, have the servants show him to the portal and present him with a gift of child psychology books and parenting-help manuals. Remind her that her armor has a communication relay she can use to talk to us whenever she wants, if she really needs comfort, and explain how frustration and anger are better channeled into studying new things or inventing things. You can't run from your problems, but you can use them to better yourself or solve them.We should come off as compassionate and sympathetic, but slightly disappointed.
>>24498629He can run any sort of test he wants. We literally haven't done anything. If he starts getting really annoyed we can have Xavier scan her mind in front of him. He's more likely to trust that outcome than whatever we would do.We must also properly gloat after the results are revealed.
>>24498803"What do you want me to say, Reed (Val is a richards too, and the familiarity will probably piss Reed off)? You expect me to cackle like a saturday morning cartoon villain? You expect me to gloat about controlling your daughter? Fine! I admit it! I brainwashed her. I'll even tell you how I did it. It's an ancient technique called Good Parenting. You might want to study it some time."
>>24498843this, Xavier as a 3rd neutral party will be the best option
>>24491084>Don't spill spaghetti on Morgan
>>24498853>Doom ever calling Reed anything but RICHAAAARDSno
>>24499001"Wrong once again Reed. Did you not test your hypothesis? Did you not consider all the facts? You had left her alone as you went to visit an alien world. There is greatness in her, that is undeniable. Where she got the genetic underpinnings for such greatness puzzles me deeply, but it is there. She must be challenged for that greatness to assert itself. She will not allow herself to wither under your neglect, nor will I enable it. As her God Father it is my duty to see for the well being of young Valieria, and I will burn heaven and Earth before I neglect her as you have. Tell me Richards, what hurts your pride the most, the fact that you're wrong about me, or your failings as a parent?"
>>24499133>Calling Reed anything but RichardsPlease stop. Doom would NEVER refer to Reed as anything but Richards.EVER. It cannot, and will not happen.
>>24498170>>24498545he made a deal with mephisto we must fuck with him
>>24499825Error on my part. Apologies.>>24499889I find it unlikely that we know about that. Plus, the universe already makes his life miserable enough as is.
So we've heard from xavier, magneto, and t'challa. Any word from Namor, Black Bolt, or Callisto?
>>24502008>NamorIs safe to assume he will likely confirm it in 9 days at the tournament. Also lets make him an antimetal weapon in whatever form he likes. Also if we can hook him up with internet that would be better than another computer.
>>24502420Speaking of making weapons, I had a HILARIOUS ideaa in preperation for the return of this quest.Can we.... make Skrullbots?I mean, we have doombot inpersonators, and data on the skrull genome, and lots of defectors, as well as a mastery of robotics.What i'm getting at here is: All of our enemies and allies are paranoid as fuck about skrull infiltration, and being able to MAKE such a threat where non exists would be HILARIOUS.I mean, just think of the irritation we could give our enemies.
>>24502476He he. Also are our Skrull defectors from there main government?
>>24502420Well the idea of transplanting atlantis and 20% of earth's seawater to Mars is a bit crazy and I wanted his input on it, even if it vastly increases the livable surface area of earth, delays the worst effects of global warming, preserves existing sea life by moving it beyond the reach of commoner fishing and pollution concerns, and vastly increases the livability of Mars (we can take more water fromEuropa later to further augment Mars' supply and increase its mass to better hold atmosphere.And as a superhuman ruler of a superhuman people, I think he can lend valuable insight to cavier/magneto/whomever in settig up their martian mutant nation.
>>24502420Probably some kind of trident?And I think we could get him internet access
>>24503702Why not a trident that works as a wifi hotspot?
>>24503405We can get freshwater from comets from the Oort Cloud with our new skrull FTL drives. We might be able to get some from the asteroid belt, but I don't recall offhand if there is ice in any significant presence there.
>>24503988there is lots>>24503405that would likely push lots of reefs out of water killing them but if we do >>24503988 and transplant a vast variety of marine life with his aid that would work.
>>24503988Would people mind if we stole Hailey's comet? There's always Europa too
>>24504284lets not steal those when there are billions of tons of ice people dont have sentimental attachment to
>>24504012Fair enough. Someone suggested turning Phobos into a massive genetics laboratory and zoo. Use the Time Machine to retrieve DNA from extinct or endangered species and rebuild earth's lost biodiversity there in a controlled environment, transplanting to Mars and Earth once captive populations grew large enough.And yeah, Europa is looking like the best option, followed by asteroid mining. Maybe transplant the waste minerals (the commons stuff and slag we don't use to Mars, sinking it into the planet's core to further boost the planet's mass. If we can do it safely, of course.
>>24504514Well since we have anti-metal, we could try drilling to the core and try setting it off again, wouldn't that make the atmosphere better?
>>24504651IT would start up the magneto sphere which would help keep in an atmosphere. the vulcanism would be a problem because the surfer and CO2 and CO would stifle an oxi nitrous atmosphere we would try and build. But We are DOOM and such enjinering onsurns our trifals to us. Plus that would give more atmosphere to burn up comets in without a hard impact or sort landing.
>>24504742Plus it sounds cool. If it's a matter of magnetism though, maybe we could get magneto to help. Maybe build a machine to increase his power level
>>24504993the magnetism is a product of a spinning molten core not the cause of the molten core. Besides I doubt Magnus would be willing to sit in a machine full time to magnetically shield a whole planet. Not to mention he is getting on in years.
>>24505145Ah, alright. I meant more that he may be good at kicking it off, but he is getting a bit old
>>24505353well he did survive the Holocaust.
