If it ain't broke, don't fix it. You throw up another illusion, your tail shimmering in the morning sun as the Ape hollow searches. You show the snake Hollow, broken and dead with the soul from before right beside him, just waiting to be eaten. The Ape hollow rushes forward, salivating like mad before landing on nothing and you strike. Your poison seems to slow him down, but not enough as he throws you off of him, but you land nimbly on your feet. The ape knows he is finished, as do you as you circle around him, making a few probing passes here and there in order to test his strength. His attacks become less and less sharp as your poison builds up inside him and with a large bite you devour him.GAIN 50XPYou are standing around when you see a strange figure standing between you and the hospital. This one is wearing black robes and is holding a curved sword. You get an uneasy feeling just from looking at them and suspect they might be dangerous."Cannibalism?

Have another +10 because I forgot to ask for it.You first try to talk to him, but he upraises his had as if to stop you. He mutters something you don't quite catch before he fires a blast of energy at you. You barely manage to avoid it before rebounding off a wall and launching yourself at himYou dash forward and try to catch him with your claws, but his katana keeps you at bay. You slash, and strike, and try to get a hold of him, but he manages to keep you just outside of hitting distance while slowly forcing you into a corner. You think you have him when you manage to cut his torso, but he just grimaces before holding his hand up and firing another blast of energy at you, your own rather lightly armored form just getting nicked, but it still hurts like a bitch.He lifts his sword before assuming a ready pose.You are currently lightly injured.Wat do?Continue fighting, we must win.Live to fight another dayOther, please specifyAlso, please roll 1d100.

You lunge towards him, intent to continue the fight. He easily bats you away, evidently getting used to your slightly higher than normal speed. As you land you stumble, and you glare at him, certain he has performed some sort of trickery. You see laying by his feet one of your legs. You try to stand and throw an illusion to confuse him, but your illusions are too weak at this time to effect him and he takes another leg before you can roll away.You try and keep his limbs away, perhaps diving under him, yet he seems to already know this tactic as he slashes towards you, nearly catching your mask and catching a large portion of your flank. Your go juice is slowly evaporating into the surrounding area, and you give a silent curse and he fires another of his strange energy blasts at you.You are now: Heavily injuredHunger: LowWat do?Open a portal and bugger outFight on!

Rolled 16, 86, 41, 76, 37, 61 = 317You open up a portal, the flow of energy feeling slightly soothing. You almost make it out when the young man dashes forward. You ignore him and leap with your one leg into the portal. More of a hop really, but probably a brave hop, and not a scared hop or one like an eight year old girl does to scotch.You feel a biting pain as the sword swings down and severs you in half, leaving your bottom half behind as you tumble through the gateway into an endless desert, the moon high above you and covering the crystalline landscape with a soft glow. The top of your torso tumbles into a small tree, no it is actually a crystal as well, you note as you feel your body sink into the sand slightly.You concentrate and your body starts to heal, though the process is exhausting.After some time, the never ending night making it hard to tell exactly how much time has past, you are fully healed.Health: PerfectHunger: StarvingWat do?Open up a portal, you have a score to settleLook around for a while.

You try and develop a second personality who is far better at plan checking than you, but you only manage to make yourself get a nose bleed. That... that's not normal though, right? You wander the wasteland, looking for something, anything to eat. You come upon an absurdly strong hollow who seems to be missing his mask and consider attacking, but they spare a glance your way despite the fact you were trying to hide and choose to avoid them.You try to eat one of the small lizards you catch and munch it down, but it does nothing to sate your hunger, and think you would have to eat a few thousand of them or so before they made any noticeable difference.After a while you manage to see a small portal open up by the horizon.

You decide there is no point in making alliances for now as you would spend too much time trying to kill each other. You throw up an illusion of anything you can think of and wait for the wolf like hollow to go past before you jump onto his back and dig your claws in. You start shredding into him, and gnash and tear until there is little left and then you eat. Your body screams out in joy as the energy fills you back up, but even this isn't enough to fully recover you, but it is a start.GAIN: 30XPTotal XP: 129Hunger: ModerateYou can now spend 100 xp to raise any of your 1 * abilities to level 2Or you can spend 100 xp to buy a new abilityAbilities available:Elemental affinity: Changes go juice to have an elemental subtype (Fire, Earth, Ice, lighting)Cutting wheel: Use tail as a makeshift melee weaponTsukiyo's Mirror: Reflect weak spirit energy attacksFatemaker: Gain ability to re-roll one round of rolls ( another round of 1d100s) per thread.Other, please write in
>>25103295Current Abilities:*High speed regeneration:As long as your head is not destroyed and your body doesn't suffer catastrophic damage you can reform and heal yourself rapidly, though you may need to momentarily retreat from danger. This is a native Hollow ability.*Garganta:Opens a small path between the worlds of mortals and Hollows. At the moment you can only create portals that you can move through yourself. This is native to all Hollows.*Glimpse: You can glance through minute portals into the mortal world and into the land of Hollows, Hueco Mundo. This is a natural but lower level version of Garganta.*Illusion: You can make a weak minded, or unaware subject see what ever you want. Thanks to your massive spititual energy you can create a fairly powerful illusion even on a regular human, though it loses its effectiveness on aware, or spiritually strong enemies.*Cloaking: You can hide yourself passively from observation. Hollows below Menos will not be able to detect you unless you wish it or they have skill at detection.*Shape changing: You can minorly alter your appearance, making your claws a little sharper or your teeth a bit stronger, but you can not add new traits to yourself at this level, nor can you assume a form very different than your own.*Poison: All of your attacks contain a dose of your Reiryoku, which is poisonous to the soul of other beings. If you wish it, you can kill a single unprotected human in about two days as your spirit energy slowly kills them from the inside.

As I am worried I was not clear, I will try to say it again.Upgrading any ability from one star to two will always cost 100 XP.Shapeshifting will always cost 100 xp to reach level two no matter if you do it now or later.Getting a new ability will not always cost 100.

Elemental Wind, or Bee BreathNone shall catch us!
Proposed Ability:Illusory ConstructsWhen Schrodinger wills it, an illusions can gain substance, and can interact with the environment. This can range from an illusionary wall suddenly and momentarily becoming solid, to using an illusion to pick up an object and throw it.As more skill points are invested in this ability, so too does the physical strength of the illusions, as well as their durability.
We could always have our custom Cero be lots of mini-Ceros fired from the bees... the hundreds and hundreds of them...
>>25103584That goes with illusions. They will gain substance if you upgrade them down a certain path.
>>25103591I like this,I like this a lot.
Guys, how about a gun that shoots bees? Not like cero shaped bees, like actual bees, with tophats
>>25103591>>25103631Why the fuck do people care about bees so much?
>>25103584I like this.Alternatively, in accordance with our name,ParallelismSchrodinger may create an illusory copy of himself and have it carry out an action. Which one of you is real may be determined retroactively.Leveling up would determine how many seconds after activation Shrodinger has to determine the reality of the situation.
Seems the majority want Elements wind.Are you sure?Y/N
>>25103591Holy shit. YES!
>>25103636I was actually mocking the whole thing, but couldn't find the Stark cap to go with it
>>25103584Does this overlap with anything else?Schrodinger's Shroud (passive)So long as Schrodinger itself is unobserved, Schrodinger's abilities become slightly more effective, but consume much much less spiritual energy. Although I'm also liking >>25103639
>>25103642I'm good with it, then again I suggested it so I'm biased.
>>25103642I want lightning.

>>25103642I wanted better regen ._.
SuperpositionAs long as Shrodinger isn't observed, he exists in every point he isn't observed to not be in, and doesn't exist
>>25103667This first,I'm all down for elemental affinity but some info would be nice.
>>25103667They provide a certain spin to abilities.For example if you chose fire your powers would be able to burn things and carry extra destructive power. On the other hand ice abilities would be more effective on you.It makes you more effective in some situations and worse in others
Rolled 76Nobody seems to want ice :(
>>25103691>>25103639I'm guessing that pulling that sort of thing off would be done by improving the fuck out of Illusion and Cloaking, not necessarily a new ability.
>>25103636I don't know. I just thought it would be amusing to continue down the road of madness...
Again, if you are sugesting an ability please try to remember it will be one star, as in fairly weak until you upgrade it.

>>25103771I doubt I am the namefag you are thinking of...
So it seems now we just want to straight upgrade abilities?Illusion or regen?If there is no general consensus in 7 minutes I will just pick what seems most popular at the time.
>>25103819I'd prefer Illusion over Regen by a fair margin.
>>25103819illusion, we Aizen soon
>>25103819Regen for the path to unkillability

You feed your gained power into your current tail and it seems to become a bit larger, maybe.**Illusion: You can make a regular target see or hear something that isn't actually there. You can also inflict a minor illusion on unaware spiritually strong targets, or slightly more advanced illusions on weak minded targets.

>>25104216Stop naming yourself fool.
>>25104251I am doing this so as when I look back on this questI may remember which ideas I thought up and what I said
You decide to continue exploring. You wander for what seems like hours until you see in the distance a large number of buildings and pillars. As you walk towards it, it does not seem to get any closer, and you can only speculate it is massive enough you can see it from even this far away.DISCOVERED: Area of Las NochesYou feel your body become wracked with pain as your hunger becomes almost too much to even tolerate.Hunger: SEVERE(Impairing abilities)What now?Back to the human worldBack to make friends and talkExploran!Other, please specifyPlease give me another round of 1d100 rolls no matter what you decideThose who know me from .hack//AIDA know I love my random charts so sometimes I ask for a lot.

Rolled 14>>25104276Again to the human world...though let us proceed far more stealthily than we had before...lest we again find ourselves beset by blade wielding foes.
Rolled 6I am multitasking
You decide that you have seen more of this place than you would ever like to and tear open a portal to the mortal world. Luckily you manage to pop back down near the shopping district from last time. You grab a quick soul you notice wandering around and munch on it while you survey the area, the human soul not quite as filling now that you know how tasty your fellow hollows are.Hunger: SEVEREYou extend your senses and search out the area and discover a likely source of hollows by a church. On the other hand, in the other direction near the train station there seems to be a whole gaggle of the regular human souls.Is that a thing, a gaggle?You blink before shaking the thought from your head. You also get the feeling the strange ghost from last time is by the river, so you could always go there.GAIN 1XPWat do?Go take out the hollows, you need as much food as you can getGo for the train station, best play it safeGo chase the blue haired guy from last time down.Other, please specify
>>25104407...You better not bring a roll like that to where the shadows wait.
>>25104415[X]Go for the train station, best play it safeOnce we're not at Severe hunger we can think about larger prey.
Rolled 15>>25104415>Go for the train station, best to play it safe.
>>25104415Train station. Our powers are weak, we must consume easier prey.
>>25104415train stationgotta play it safemaybe send an illusion to taunt the strange soul?
>>25104415[X] Train station.Probably a suicide zone or trap. Prepare for souls to mutate into Hollows and ambushes.
>>25104415Well, we need to eat and train station already has two votes. Why not? I vote train station a well.
Rolled 84>>25104415>Go take out the hollows, you need as much food as you can getLess Hollows also means less competition for the plentiful and easy human souls.
You float over to the train station, noting with some dissatisfaction you have not been rhyming or feeling like your regularly fantastic self. In fact, ever since the blue haired jerk showed up you have been having a generally awful time indeed. You float gently down to the train station and see a group of school girls holding hands on the platform. You are confused for a few seconds before noting that there seems to be a small memorial to the girls who jumped into the path of the train as part of a suicide pact. A few of the are crying, and a few others trying to look strong.You frown as you consider just floating over and eating them, but then pause.That isn't what you should be doing, is it?Then again, if you take too long the scary blue haired boy might come back, or the other hollows.Wat do?troll(how?)Just eat them, then run to the church to eat the other hollowsLeave, these poor souls deserve their restJust eat them then go hideOther, please specify
Go take out the hollows, you need as much food as you can getIt will sate my hunger I'll bet
>>25104576Can we just eat them? If so, eat them. Eat the lot of them. Then to the church.
>>25104576[X] trollWe have to get back in touch with our roots, blue haired asshole be damned. We should try to use our increased illusion making abilities to make the children attending the funeral (or at least one or two of them) think they see the ghosts of some of their friends. If we can also 'mirror' reality, we could make them walk into the train tracks while they think they're walking away or chasing after their friend.
Rolled 69>>25104576eat them, but make sure we keep track of them when they reform as hollows, we need the food but we aren't terrible
>>25104633I was not clear. The girls holding hands are the ones who did the suicide pact. They are ghosts, tied to where they died.
Rolled 27>>25104576Leave. This isn't fun, this isn't IC. The hollows at the church should be satisfying enough, and we'll actually get to enjoy it. These girls are already depressed, and trolling them won't be properly amusing.Besides, the Shinigami won't investigate some disappearing hollows as much as normal human souls.
Rolled 9>>25104576Petty human children are no muss...I've tasted truth and pain.As the bell tolls I will feast and fussOne hallowed laneA cannibal's blush.
>>25104633I stand by appleswe must honor Cheshire
>>25104576[X]troll(how?)Craft an illusion of a passing train, tell them it will end the pain. As they leap from the platform again, they shall fall into our domain. A feast we shall have today, for we shall lead our prey astray.
>>25104654Ah, well, we still need to troll them. We can make auditory hallucinations right? Let's make one of them hear another of them blame the person hallucination the sound for their deaths. Get the school girls fighting each other before we step in and have some fun.
>>25104690I like this, make them think that if they jump again for the train they'll find peace.We'll be waiting below with an open mouth.It'll be hilarious. We can even compose a little poem for them.
>>25104576[x] OtherLeave and go to the church to eat some other Hollows.Depressed ghosts can't be properly trolled; they're no fun.
>>25104659Second. It is no fun trolling someone who has given up hope.
>>25104744Those are the best ones to troll.Give them a shred of hope, something to latch onto, and then take it away.Make them think they're going to heaven and then once they grab hold of that, we eat one in front of the others and chase them down.
Rolled 95>>25104744Try to make them jump into the traintracks by making their friend appear on other side.
>>25104737When the train will pass you byJump before it, please just tryWhere once that fate did end in tearsNow you'll be happy your final yearsWhat's the matter, do you think I lied?You cannot kill what has already died.
>>25104830Then eat, of course
Long term, an efficient digestion skill or even feeding on negative emotions, or residual spirit energy can save our asses, or at least make food less of a concern.
You decide to troll them a little. You think about making them start fighting among themselves, but then realize you don;t know what any of their voices sound like so that would not be very effective. Instead you craft the illusion of a train and have it start approaching from the distance.The girls seem to sag a little before you project your voice."When the train will pass you byJump before it, please just tryWhere once that fate did end in tearsNow you'll be happy your final yearsWhat's the matter, do you think I lied?You cannot kill what has already died." You explain and the girls look around, evidently at a loss."Who- who said that?" They ask but you just laugh."Have faith, have trust!To move on it is a must.I only seek to help you pass,I assure you the ride is first class." You continue, the girls seeming apprehensive.After a few minutes of deliberation, aided by you creating the illusion of voice, the girls jump. Right into your waiting maw You devour them totally, and leave nothing behind before climbing off the subway tracts. That's dangerous after all.Hunger: ModerateYou are picking your teeth clean when you feel the blue haired boy from before rushing towards your position. You duck and weave and make your way out of the station before finding yourself back at your usual perch, ready to plan the day.You have, after all, only just started.Why don't we call it here for tonight? I will be around for a bit if you have any questions/concerns/comments and the like.

>>25105131A sexless soul eating monster
>>25105142It is @dothackaidaAnd I planned on it which is why I mentioned the date
>>25105060Were you expecting it to be this popular?
>>25105151Their gender from when they were alive was probably male or female, CC 2 doesn't remember which
>>25105060Do you like the rhyming thing? Did you expect that to happen?
>>25105175I expected some popularity, but nothing to this degree. I am pleasantly surprised. I figured my writing would have driven people off by now
I'm still amazed by how popular my rhyming bit got. Just a good example of contrast I suppose
>>25105190I imagined it might. I do not mind it.
>>25105193Bleach is sorta popular compared to .hack.
>>25105146I'm pleasantly surprised by how the players are good with having Schrodinger be a sadistic monster.Usually quest protagonists tend to default towards Chaotic Good.
>>25105225Man, I miss the fuck out of .hack.
>>25105234Or worse. But yeah, I'm very surprised the majority kept it in hollow character.
>>25105244I don't. The show was shit.

>>25105286The... other quest I run? A .hack quest? Would you like a link?
>>25105286The quest he ran, and is still running, before this.Has 20 threads, has been going on since near the beginning of April?No?
Rolled 11>>25105255Of course it was. The games, however, were not. (G.U. at least, I didn't love the combat system in the earlier ones.)
>>25105300CCS was always on when I was busy running around. .hack came on at around 7ish so I was inside most nights by then.It also introduced me to the idea of lesbians. So that's a thing
>>25105316Ahh, I'm new to this board so I didn't know. >>25105308A link was provided here >>25105300 will read up on it. Also, I'm following your twitter now.
>>25105350>lesbiansOh yeah, me too I'm pretty sure.Mostly I just remember the awesome music.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Wci0l_wCOwFuck yeah.
>>25105255Oh yeah? Well I disagree, but respect your difference in taste. It's been a while since I've seen sign, so it might not have aged well .>>25105321The concept behind the games was novel enough, although I feel that they didn't explain enough about The World being less of an MMO with true AIs, so much as a true sapient AI creation engine that CC-corp built a game around. Thus somehow creating an actual artificial world that they only had limited control over, and somehow exist over the internet despite there not being any infrastructure that could realistically support such things.The absurd price per game in the first series wasn't great either. Still bought the games, despite Bandai's obvious money-grab.
>>25105434Plus the clear unregulated status of CC corp which I didn't even notice till I started AIDA.Seriously, the game was putting people into comas, and the government doesn't even care? That's some shadow war level stuff right there
Is the previous topic up somewhere so I can catch up?
>>25105497CC Corp is the digital equivalent to Weyland Yutani.I still half-suspect that they were somehow responsible for Pluto's Kiss to gain a monopoly over operating systems.
>>25105401The music was always up to a pretty high standard. The themes as well it is just sometimes they were not executed well
>>25105535Ten year old crashed the Internets.GRHAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.That is Shadow War shit right there. What did CC Corp do? Take control of every nuclear platform?
>>25105434http://dothack.wikia.com/wiki/Guilty_Dragon:_The_Sin_Dragon_and_the_Eight_CursesEnjoy your cellphone game, anon. ;_;
>>25105577They made an AI which can. As well as control all life support or virtually anything else hooked up to any internet.Well, actually a genius/crazy programmer did and sold it to CC corp as a game so his AI could analyze human emotions and minds as data.Once they found out they covered it up and tried to gain control of it or remove it
>>25105612I'd really like to know just how terrifyingly advanced Fragment was.I kind of suspect that what's going on in your quest right now was a design feature.
>>25105653As all the AI seem able to send people into comas, and harald himself managed to dl his brain into the game?If these are the only features they put into the game I would be shocked. How does "Births a potentially evil AI, has some dudes brain inside it, and may create threats to mankind" not get caught in beta?!
>>25105653A person once described Fragment as Harald Hoerwick's way of creating an actual sapient intelligence, but got all depressed and emo when his girlfriend dumped him and as a result only left it 70% complete. Then he got himself stuck in an upside-down chair in the internets. It could've worked perfectly fine for what it was, but it was still incomplete.So, CC-corp gets a hold of this software, doesn't really know what it can do other than generate lots of detailed worlds given strange combinations of words, and think "HEY! THIS THING IS A PERFECT GAME ENGINE!" and thus Fragment/The World was born. They didn't quite know about all the other stuff that contributed into making the first perfectly sapient AI and Morgana Mode Gone and Cubia and all that other stuff until they used the engine to make until everything started going to shit with the comas and the Kites and the bracelets and stuff. Many of these things are probably not exactly correct, as I don't have access to the Japanese source material nor can I read Japanese real well and am trying to remember this from a thread I read a while back.
>>25105713>harald himself managed to dl his brain into the gameIn all fairness, he didn't really do that good a job.
>>25105737>got all depressed and emo when his girlfriend dumped himNah, the poet chick had no real interest in him, he just kinda pined for her and freaked out when she died.Also she and CC Corp apparently were members of some extreme eco group that felt that humanity had to drastically reduce its population.And they just so happened to market a game that can transfer consciousness to the digital realm.
>>25105713I meant specifically the whole "players treat their characters as actual bodies, appear to be moving and thinking a lot faster than normal"...How many people died as a result of the beta testing again?
>>25105737That's about right, except for the black box where the epitaphs and aura and all that was stored was in the programming. CC corp saw the box was there and had no idea what it did, they just knew if you took it out the game would run so instead of coding something else up they just left the unknown piece of software in.>>25105755He sort of half assed everything that didn't have to deal with emma directly.Fake daughter based on her because she was not all that into him? ALL MY EFFORT. Brain dling machine. Meh, who needs safety protocols?
>>25105792Lolwut. Source?As I remembered, Emma was Harald's crush that was already married. He could not NTR the husband, therefore, they decided to blend poetry and computers together. Emma died in a car crash. Sauce on eco-group?
>>25105811Harald at least, though if he died is debatable since part of his mind is in the game. Then after the whole coma thing? The perfect AI which could control the world's internet? They wanted to do it again! And were shocked when comas happened, AGAIN
>>25105841http://dothack.wikia.com/wiki/MamaCould just be made up, but it's unsettling stuff.
>>25105859To be fair, Aura was doing a lot of unseen and undetectable stuff to somehow make The World v1 require little to no maintenance, and also require little to no infrastructure to run. To a short-sighted bunch of greedy corporate suits, why WOULDN'T you want to replicate the same thing after your main cash-cow of an MMO crashes and burns IRL? Who cares about the implications of an AI seemingly blurring the lines between reality and the internet, with all the signs that implied that there might be some sort of plane of existence in which The World is a gateway in which humanity can interact with said plane?
>>25105932Since they seemingly answer to no one?Wait, trick question
Well, I'm off. Thanks fr the fun thread guys!
Too bad I wasn't here for this second part.I love how Schrödinger is evolving into a psychopathic trickster. Though, maybe we should give him some more personality aside of his love for trolling ?Upvoted both threads on suptg.
