Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27347899/Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/UuVeJFigYou’re John James Green, homeless mutant extraordinaire. You’re about to meet one of the most disagreeable people you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to cross paths with – and, surprise surprise, you’re actually doing this willingly. Less than an hour ago you and your companions-in-vagrancy sat down and came to the conclusion that best way to address their various ills would be to stand and face them – meet Creeper and work out some kind of deal. You don’t want to work for him again – you really, really don’t want to work with him again – but it’s either that or you all pack up and leave town. And seeing as the border is about 50-60% Sentinel these days, you don’t much fancy your chances there. It’ll be a one-time thing. You’ll work something out and then all this will be behind you.Your watch tells you it’s 9:20, AM. The snow has lifted somewhat outside, but if you know wintertime NY it’ll come down hard in the afternoon. You’re in your dilapidated little shelter. Noriko’s in the bathroom, the aftereffects of Jack dependency burning through her. Laura & Kevin are in the sitting room.>Current Funds: $80>$28 (Laura).>$26 (Kevin). Hunger Level: 3>[ ] Leave.

>[X] PracticeYou amble back into the living room, watching your fingertips for any occasional sparks. You think you might know how to flip the ‘on switch’ for it, but it’s not quite like your ability to fade out. Going invisible is like someone’s turned all the lights down over you – you probably couldn’t quite explain it in words, but it definitely feels like something. This is different. You see the sparks, but you don’t feel anything running through your hands. Kevin’s still eating. Laura appears to have finished some time ago and is reviewing her map. >[ ] See if Kevin can help you practice something.>[ ] See if Laura can help you practice something.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] See if Laura can help you practice something.“Hey, Laura, you mind giving a hand with something?” She glances up from her work, and after a quick but visible bit of internal deliberation, folds it away into the front pocket of her hoodie. You didn’t really get much of a good look at what she was scrawling all over that map, but it looked vaguely like the most complicated spider diagram ever. “I have the time.” “Great. I was just wondering if you could, I dunno, help me get a handle on some of my abilities. Before I go see Creeper.” She nods, and stands up. “I believe there is a useful exercise that I could assist you with.” She actually smiles a little. Uh, what? >Roll a D20>No exact DC for this one

Rolled 9>>27399952I'll play until class. By the way, do we know if Noriko has any cash on her? And can we get a summary of our non-liquid assets?
>>27400087Almost three quarters of an hour later you’re looking back on the decision to ask Laura for some tips and questioning the sanity of the idea. You’re half a block from the apartment, atop one of the far more badly battered buildings near the edge of the scar, where some kind of heat weapon must have scored a path through most of the housing in the neighbourhood. The fire escape at your feet is twisted nearly beyond recognition, taking some real inventive climbing to make your way up. You’re breathing hard, blood pounding in your ears and adrenaline filling your lungs with fire. The cold is almost an afterthought; an annoying buzz hanging over your shoulder. You were pretty surprised to find that Laura’s special training regime was pretty much a game of tag, but you can’t deny the results. You haven’t had a workout like this in months, maybe years, and you clearly underestimated the level of escalation that superpowers can bring to a simple child’s game. She tracks you easily, but actually touching you when you’re invisible is a different matter – more than once you were seemingly cornered, but shifting out of sight allowed you to just about evade her grasp. You think you’re in the clear for now, and take a moment to lap greedily at the cold air. Suddenly, however, you hear something whistle through the air nearby, and a shadow passes over you. Before you can react, a small hand smacks the top of your head. Laura lands beside you with a soft ‘whump’. “Tag.” >Hunger Level: 4>[ ] You’re It!

>>27400267You haven't really had a chance to ask Noriko about that. You actually own very little that can be easily converted into cash. You have two bags of Jack, but selling it for a good price requires time and connections. You have a second-hand camping stove that is probably worth less simply for being in your ownership. You have two boxes of matches, and a can of fuel for the stove. You have your clothes.
we'll probably have to work off Kevin and Noriko's debt by stealing stuff.and then Spider-man beats us up. or we finally meet the Punisher....

>>27400488Okay, well. It’s what, an hour on, and you still haven’t caught her?You came pretty close back at the furniture store, very nearly catching up to her, but she managed to just about give you the slip. Your invisibility is pretty much useless for actually sneaking up on her – here it just obscures your movements – so you’ve had to rely on speed, wit, and general fitness to stay on her tail. And it seems (not surprisingly) that Laura is faster, and wittier, and generally fitter than you are.You chased her all the way to an abandoned parking lot, further on into the scar where the houses give way a long, skeletal stretch of (former) chain stores and restaurants. You’re on one side of a scrapped SUV, she’s pressed up against the other.

>>27400936Sweet, sweet victory.You decided to push yourself to the limit and make one last grand huzzah at the whole thing – and, to your surprise, it worked.As expected, Laura bolted the moment you made an attempt at sliding over the SUV. She made it as far as the ruined Starbucks on the other end of the street, before unexpectedly trapping herself when it turned out that the stairs to the roof had collapsed in on themselves. You two circled around each other for a short while before you rallied the effort for one last burst of invisibility and managed to bring her down. You’re lying on the frozen ground, gasping for air. Victory feels a lot like a punch in the gut. Your legs are live wires full of searing lactic acid. Laura is smiling almost broadly, the blood glowing brightly under her skin. You can smell the adrenaline pulsing through her, steadily winding away, powering down. >Hunger Level: 5>Time: 11:20>[ ] Holy shit that was tiring.

>[X] Food.>[X] Home. Once the halo of adrenaline circling above the both of you fades, you begin to realize just how hungry all that running around and jumping through rubble has made you, your stomach suddenly awakening as all the other parts of you involved in the running and the jumping start to wind down. Laura doesn’t seem to have quite the same problem, but she accompanies you out of the scar anyway. Now that you have some cooking utensils, you can pick up something that isn’t thrown at you over a counter. And if you’re not mistaken, there’s a room nearby yours that accumulates a great deal of snow – might as well be a freezer in there. Perfect. It takes you a little over half an hour to make your way out of the scar and track down a supermarket. You feel intensely awkward strolling down the sterile white aisles, almost like you’ve returned to the mothership after years stranded on a distant planet – it’s just been such a long-ass time since you’ve actually been inside one of these places. You buy a few bits and bobs (including too big bottles of water) that would benefit from cold storage and check out, feeling a little discouraged with the knowledge that your hundred smackeroos have dwindled down to $68.50 in just a day or two. It’s 12:40 when you arrive home. The snow’s thickened a little, and you end up stopping at the door to pat a thin gauze of frost off one another. Instead of being pasty and sticky in the bathtub, Noriko’s being pasty and sticky on the mattress. Kevin’s sitting around looking impotently concerned. >[ ] Cook something up. >[ ] Pass Noriko a bottle of water. >[ ] Write in.

>[X] Cook something up. >[X] Pass Noriko a bottle of water. “Did you get stabbed to death by gangsters yet?” Noriko groans out from under the protecting shield of her hands, peering through her fingers at you. “Hah, nah.” You set aside your shopping and pull out a bottle of water, setting it down beside Noriko. “I haven’t gone after Creeper yet. Here, you should probably be keeping hydrated.” “Uh, if didn’t go see… that guy… what’ve you been doing? You’ve been gone for hours.” Kevin regards you curiously as you begin unpacking a few choice items. Now, you’re not one to brag, but you are a truly veteran of the hobo culinary arts, having been running this gig across the US of A since sweet fourteen. You’re about to show these schlubs just how far a few chicken livers, some hot water, and a bit of pepper can go. Of course, someone else will have to handle the matches. “Laura helped me work on my powers for a bit. Went pretty well.” Laura nods and sits down beside you. “It was enjoyable.” “Yeah.” You confirm, choosing not to divulge that it was mostly just a very long game of tag. “Speaking of, you got any ideas on your powers? Any way you can think of for clocking in some practice with ‘em?” Kevin’s brow furrows and he seems to sag inward. “No… I mean, I can’t exactly go around touching people and trying not to turn them into dust.” Right. >[ ] “Trees?

>[X] Wood.“There’s gotta be some plywood round here.” You note, setting up the stove and cracking open a packet of chicken. “This place is basically one big rubbish tip. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen people just unload crap at the edge of the zone and waltz off.” “Yeah… I guess.” You glance up, and can’t help but notice that he doesn’t look particularly enthused by the idea – just discussing his powers, it seems, makes him kinda nervous. You feel a tiny, guilty spark of relief. There but for the grace of etc, and all that. You always thought the eyes and the scales were bad, but clearly you actually scored a moderate win (or at least an even) on the genetic lottery. With some slight embarrassment, you get Laura to start up the stove for you, flinching a little when she strikes the match. That out of the way, you step in and get the chicken boiling. You guys pass the next hour just milling around, eating, and discussing little stuff. Noriko occasionally downs a swig of water before going back to sweating off the Jack aftershock.It’s 13:40, those chicken livers have filled you up, and you’re recovering from the morning’s exploits. >[ ] Go look for Creeper.>[ ] Rest longer, ask Laura about her map plan thing.>[ ] Rest longer, ask Kevin why he’s on the streets.>[ ] Write in.

>[X] Strategy talkYou sit back and decide to let your lunch (and probably dinner too) digest for a while. No point in rushing in. You’re not procrastinating, you’re just being cautious. You recall Laura’s project and clear your throat. “Hey, Laura, mind if I take a look at that map thing?” She glances at you and wordlessly unfurls the large sheet from her pocket, shuffling a little closer and flattening it out against the floor. On the sofa, Kevin teeters in curiously, though his expression quickly changes to one of total noncomprehension. You can’t say you blame him. The map is riddled by little red markings, lines converging and separating at – as far as you can tell – nonsensical incidences. Luckily, Laura seems to realize that you’re not Jason Bourne, and points to a large red marking further upstate. “This is the facility’s primary centre of operation within the city. Officially, it is a research centre owned by a medical subsidiary.” She then points to three other marks at different points. “My information on these points is outdated, but they were offices owned by the facility. Two are located within public buildings, whereas the last operates under the guise of a private school.” Huh. Kevin whistles, and you think that about sums up your opinion. >[ ] “What are these circles all over the place?” >[ ] “What are these little X’s?” >[ ] “What are these big shaded in circles?” >[ ] “What can we do about these places?” >[ ] Write in.

Based on the positions of the facility’s offices, these are the areas most likely to dangerous.” Huh. “And what about the X’s?” You allow yourself a bit of a chuckle. “I’m guessing not buried treasure?”“Previous encounters.” Oh.

>[X] Previous question. >[X] Creeper time.You point to the tiny X that you can’t pin an event on. “What happened here, if you don’t mind my asking?” She nods. “That was when I first entered the city. I…” She stops, and lets out a tiny, unobtrusive sigh. “I entered a government building to locate public records on someone I know. It was a foolish thing to do. I was caught on camera and a group of agents tracked me to that point. They’ve only taken this long to find me again because they assumed I’d move on immediately.” “I see.” You don’t push that any further. “What about the little circles?” “Police stations.” Huh, okay. Useful. Glancing at the time, you decide that that’s enough geography talk. You can get around to comprehending the whole scope of that particular mess when this first mess is off your hands. And that means seeing the Creeper.“Welp… I think it’s about time.

>>27403147OH GOD HARD DECISION.On the one hand, she's the only one we're sure can "notice" the Creeper.On the other, that leaves Kevin and Noriko defenseless, since the former is a quivering shit, and the latter is in her own personal vomitorium at the moment.
>>27403147Already voted for backup but if we do go alone at least give her the Malcom Renolds caveat and let her know to come rescue our ass if we don't show back up in a timely manner.
Well, we need somebody to keep Noriko from going into withdrawal rampage and Kevin can't touch her without killing her, so I'm voting...>Go alone
>[X] Go it alone.You raise your hand, gesturing for her to stop.“Actually, Laura, I’d rather go alone.”This is your problem. Well, actually, it’s not – but Creeper is. He’s been your problem for years.She stares for a moment, as if you’ve said something in gibberish, and then opens her mouth. “Have I done something wrong? Do you doubt that I can be effective in”–“No, no, nah.” You smile haggardly. What the hell man? “I just don’t want you involved. You’ve already got one psychopath looking for you. ‘Sides, I reckon Noriko might be a two-man job once the second wave of vomiting hits.” “Lovely.” Notes Kevin. “You sure you don’t need any help?” “I’m good.” You confirm, and hurry your way out before anyone else can object.You’re good. You make it outside before you realize that you don’t have an actual destination. You know a place that Creeper used to frequent – this rickety old crack-den full of bad stains and worse people – but you’ve been out of touch for a while now. You’re not even sure the place still exists. >[ ] Go with what you know.

>>27403726The old den might not be such a great idea, what with your pockets stuffed full of jack. And you know who you trust more than Creeper’s unholy circle of pushers, pimps and dealers? Basically the entire universe. You head out into the deepening snow, recalling from memory the local shelters, soup-lines, and other such capitols of jolly hobo activity. It takes hours just finding them all, let alone getting the message out. You’d usually expect to have to grease some palms, but Creeper business is business that everyone generally wants concluded as fast as possible. You hit the guys tossing papers first, then you make your way to one of the larger handouts, making sure the word spreads. You drop in on the shelters you can recall, braving the sickly sweet well-meaning of the volunteers and evangelists, and make a brief circles around the favoured beggars’ spots.By five-thirty, you’re taking a well-deserved break in the park that lead you to Noriko. The crustwaves are buzzing with activity, and you’re pretty damn glad you took a few hours to rest up in the middle of the day – you pretty much forgot how tiresome hobo-to-hobo communications can be. You briefly wonder if Laura even bothered to head into work today. She should be there now, if she has. “Hey, boyo.” You stiffen up, suddenly noticing the intermittent, vaporous heat of his breath against your neck. Oh, how predictably unpredictable. --------------------------------------------->THREAD 08: ENDGonna have to call it a little earlier than usual. >Congratulations! You’ve gained an X-Point. X-points can be used to buy new mutations or upgrade existing ones! I’ll post the full list momentarily!>Congratulations! Your dramatic decision to face Creeper alone and reach a pivotal point in JJ Green’s progression has awarded you a second X-point!>Congratulations! You have gained an Attribute Boost point! These points can be spent to provide a bonus to certain rolls!
>>27403932I'll start the push to say: WE MUST BOOST OUR SENSES.We're tracking down Creeper, we need this.
>>27403932Senses or Invisibility, what to choose...?
You have a single Attribute Boost point to spend! As you have been using these skills often over the past few threads, you may spend this points to boost the following rolls: >STAMINA.>SPEED.>AGILITY.>PERSUASION.
>>27403956seconded. We must protect our personal space
>>27403932>Gee Billy why does your QM let you have TWO X-points
>>27403978I think persuasion would be our kind of stuff... Then again agility would be handy as fuck. Going to agility because failsafe :3
There are three types of powers you can purchase in Homeless Mutant Quest! CORE POWERS, which are the bread and butter of your powerset, SECONDARY POWERS, which are additional abilities or powers from other sets that are also appropriate to yours, and TERTIARY POWERS, which are powers only tangentially related to yours. All can be purchased and levelled, but Tertiary Powers can never be maxed out. Powers have five levels… except when they don’t.The powers currently available to you are:CORE POWERS: >Invisibility Lvl3>Enhanced Senses Lvl3SECONDARY POWERS: >Enhanced Agility Lvl1>Claws & Fangs Lvl1>Adhesive Touch Lvl1>Pheromone Manipulation Lvl1>Envenomed Touch Lvl1>Paralytic Touch Lvl1 >Vampiric Touch Lvl1 >Electrostatic Touch Lvl2>Light Armour (scales) Lvl1>Phasing Lvl1TERTIARY POWERS: >Enhanced Strength Lvl1>Healing Factor Lvl2>Medium Armour (carapace) Lvl1You have two points to spend. First level powers cost one point, second level powers cost two, and so on. The exceptions are your Core Powers, which cost one less than usual.
>>27403978Would Stamina let us stay invisible longer?
>>27403978>>SPEED.>>AGILITYwhat's the difference?
Rolled 5 + 1>>27403978>PERSUASION.we haven't found a need for the others yet.

>>27404004Agilitt, Enhanced Senses 3
>>27404004Invisibility means we would be truly and completely invisible right? What would electro touch 2 do?
Homeless Mutant Quest will return between Friday and Sunday. Check pig disgusting twitter for further updates: https://twitter.com/CrustyJay
>>27404004Enhanced agility + phasing
>>27403978Agility. Invisibility is only as good as your ability to dodge oncoming traffic (human or vehicular).
>>27404004PHASING. PHASING PHASING, PHASING PHASING PHASING.Phasing 1, bank the second point.
>>27404006Speed is how fast you can run and move. Agility is how dexterously you can move. Speed: Running a marathon.Agility: Parkour.
>>27404081Wouldn't Speed be more like running a sprint and stamina be running a marathon?
>>27404081ah>>27403978speed>>27404004>Enhanced Senses Lvl3tired of Creeper sneaking up on us
>>27403978>persuasion. Getting people to agree with us (i.e. creeper) can be hugely useful.
>>27404004I think it'll have been asked by now, but could you please remind us what Invisibility 3, Sense+ 3 and Electrostatic Touch 2 look like? Thanks.
>>27404081Well my vote is agility and Senses we predator now.
>>27404005Nah, that would be Concentration. Stamina is for physical stuff. It lets you operate at higher efficiency for longer.
>>27403978>PERSUASION>>27404004>Phasing Lvl1Bank the other point
Rolled 19>>27404004>We have enough for senses or invisibilityEither one of these or grab strength and... ugh phasing.
>>27404004>>27404081Senses and Silver tongue please(PERSUASION.).
>>27404004Man I'm seriosly doubting between invisibility or electrostatic touch. Meh going with electrostatic touch
>>27404125More votes for Senses though. We'll need it.>>27404119Oh, cool. Stamina makes sense, given our work-out, but so does Agility & Speed.
>>27404004Invisibility 3. We have to assume the Creeper has Mutant or enhanced human trackers at his disposal and I don't want to chance leading him back to hipome base.
>>27403978>>PERSUASION.>>27404004>Pheromone Manipulation Lvl1and >Enhanced Agility Lvl1for powers please
>>27404094Actually, yes. You're quite right.>>27404113Invisibility 3 is no longer chameleonic. Light passes through you. There's less visible distortion from movement and you lose your shadow. Senses 3 is heatvision. Electrotouch 3 is a much stronger current, able to short out unarmoured electronics and cause visible burns.
>>27404175Nice point, voting this.
>>27404004Hmmmmm. I vote light armor (scales) and Enhanced agility. As we continually turn into a blue dragon.
>>27404197they can track us, i say senses so that we can lead them off our trail.
Wow, very wide spread of mutation choices this time.
>>27404197Seconding. I think I'm changing my push to Invis, since Creeper's version seems more like forcing people to ignore him (kinda like a psychic-thing), Senses might not be as good against him. Let's out-sneak him.
>>27404236there is a slpit between senses and invisibility.There also a tie between Agility and Persuasion.
agility + phasing
>>27404246You're right. High Senses can sense things that are tangenital to him. You might recognize a smell and realize what that means, but that doesn't necessarily mean you'll see him.
Invisibility and Agility is the obvious anti-creeper package.
>>27404246I think we're far better if we keep ourselves on the invis-agility path, we can't really mess with guys as organized as mr.creepo and the agency after Laura so we're far better if we focus on escapes.
>>27404283Stat-wise, I'll toss a vote into Agility, since we spent most of the day getting a workout in super-tag.>>27404310And cementing my vote change to Invisibility.
>>27404310True, but i think its better to know where the fucker is and avoid him.
>>27404300What did invisibility 3 grant us exactly? Was it proper cloak field?
>>27404310Invisibility and Agility for the win
>>27404326We are gonna have a serious talk with him, i think getting persuasion now is the best time.
>>27404333Sorry phase-bros, I really like phasing but I think we should stick to our cores in upgrading time, soon I'll vote phasing I promise ;_;
>>27404353>>27404336>>27404326>>27404333Guys we are planing to talk to him in the next thread i think its a better idea to get persuasion.
>>27404394Fairly likely it will go south
>>27404392they have been trying since the first thread it is usually a screaming match between us stealth bros and them
>>27404394>>27404403Almost guaranteed really.
Okay it seems like Agility wins the Boosted Attribute contest. The x-points are more scattered and there's been some flipping around. So.Post 1 for Invisibility.Post 2 for Senses.Post 3 for Electrostatic Touch.Post 4 for Phasing.Post 5 for Enhanced Agility.If one of the 1-point powers there gets it, we'll do another vote for the second pick.
>>27404394We need to think long-term, agility is a failsafe to many situations, while persuasion is only to those willing to talk.
Attribute: Agility (I'm assuming this allows us to climb and do acrobatics and shit) Xpoint: lvl3 Invisibility if we can get that, if we can't, get lvl 2 electro touch
>>27403990because this quest's followers are fucktards who can't into saving points, so if were ever going to upgrade something that costs 2 points, we need to get 2 at once.>PersuasionLeave the fightan to Laura, we'll never be as good at it as her.>Invis Lvl 3So we can be even more unnoticeable than hobos in NYC usually are!Then we can start really branching out into other stuff, like taserhandsman.
>>27404394Yeah, I'm just voting agility based on our workout. Plus it's handy.>>274044251
>>274044252>>27404426We have a mutation for it.
>>27404455We dont have enough points to mutation-powers everywhere and have way more cool shit like phasing.
>>274044252 we predator now.
>>27404189>We have a shadow while invisible.Yes this makes perfect sense but it still never occurred to me. Glad I already voted to remedy that.
>>27404471We iz a great beeg sneeky-pants electro-lizard-elf.(not a vote here, I already voted for Invis).
>>27404425Please based Crusty, deliver unto the deserving the gift of Phasing, for which I have been campaigning for for many moons
>>27404520Before, we were chameleoning around, just blending in. We going Invisible now.>>27404535Keep waiting, m8, Invis wins.
>>27404535Next thread I'll join the phase-bros voting I swear.
>>27404535and for many more will you be campaigning for.you guys almost won last thread, but it seems the creapers presence stomped the choice for phasing or sensing.
>>27404511>>27404535Not today children of the phase. Our time will come next time we don't get 2 X-Points. We are not able to bank points so it'll come down to agility or phasing
>>27404552>not joining the sense bros>not getting predator vision with our agility(basically lets us see through walls)
>>27404581(We can bank points, but everyone is too childish and reactionary to play the long game.)But that's a separate complaint.
>>27404535maybe next time phase friend, when necessity trumped potential today.
>>27404604i was trying to bank the point last thread, but people wanted electro hands and phasing so my vote was outvoted.
>>27404604That's what i am talking about actually
>>27404592You get heat vision, not x-ray vision. You can see through invisibility and detect other sneaky bastards and become a better tracker, but you can't see through walls.
>phasebros faces whenI feel some very legit empathy for you guys. Welp, Invisibility takes it. If anyone's got any other questions, now's the time.
>>27404592Mane, we can just dodge everything just phasing, phasing is the future.
>>27404535I'm so sorry Anon for I told you last time that I would support you in your quest at this current juncture. However with the availability of a second X-Point to spend, I made the cynical, self serving calculating that if we don't get killed outright (unlikely, we can make it worth the Creepers' while) Invisibility 3 will be the better short and long term investment. Next time - and you now have my word - next time, even if I think it's detrimental to our immediate needs or OOC to acquire it I will support your phasing. And sorry about backing out on you this time.
>>27404657If I wasn't already a hollow shell this would turn me into one.Also, can you spell out (again) that people aren't getting X-Ray vision and can see through walls. That seems to be a huge misconception...
>>27404646True, but it can see through thin walls and maybe earn us other eye related powers if crusty ever decides on adding them.
>>27404661We've gotta drop Invisi-mode to do it, plus it's only as good as our reactions in combat. I'd rather have wall-climbing than that, just because. At least it fits our lizard elf more than electro-hands.
Oh hey we can get phase now!>>27404657FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUCK
>>27404674They can... kind of see through walls. Kind of. Not as effectively as people probably want to.They can see notable heat sources through stuff, especially when the general temperature is low. Senses 3 is not at all X-ray vision, though.
>>27404690>OH FUCK LOOK A BILLION ENEMIES>JUST LET ME RUN THROUGH FUCKING WALLSNo, point invalid, running through walls op.
>>27404665Sadly I must now vote against phasing next time, no matter what the circumstances may be. War is coming.
>>27404686It does boost ALL our senses, so hearing, scent, etc. would become better. Maybe pick up on the paint smell around Creeper.
Its like nobody's seen Predator
>>27404686Reminder that if we'd gone with vampiric touch instead of electro we would have eventually gotten life sense/vision which should be unaffected by obstructions.
>>27404707Not at level 1. Too much points for it to become useful.
>>27404706Hey crust what are the levels of agility, phasing,Armour and Light ouch.i'll probably go for these after maxing out senses and invisibility
>>27404719Yeah I'll tell you straight up - level 3 would pick up Creeper's weird paint smell. Not as well as Laura's nose, but you could do it if you're paying attention.
Guys, I just realized something, the only original power we have is sensing. Everything else is just a mockup from somebody else's power. 1. Hung out with Creeper, invisibility powers appear.2. Hung out with Laura, healing powers appear.3. Hung out with Noriko, lightning powers appear.There's clearly a theme going here
>>27404765That was a joke, and sensing comes from Laura too.Also, mentioned every thread.
>>27404765yeah we are making that theme reality.>next therad people are gunning for Envenomed Touch
>>27404765Yeah, someone made a joke about us being chameleon-chameleon a while back. Picking up powers based on folks we've had contact with (never touched Kevin, so no disintegration stuff).
>>27404783Do you think we could ever hope a power called "imitation" or something like that at a critical plotpoint?
>>27404805No, but I can hope that I get Phasing next thread.
>>27404783We had good senses before Laura.>>27404805And it turns out, that was our power all along.
>>27404657Much like Kimura was made to specifically countet X-23, I get the feeling Creeper was selected to foil the stealth powerset. Who would be our foil had we selected the other two powersets?
>>27404818Yup you guys have been fighting for this power since the very first thread.
>>27404783Pretty sure that our senses came from another member of the Creepers gang. Also, foreshadowing of the Creeper's Hunter which we don't actually know about yet,
>>27404818I want enhanced strength.Swinging an electrified hammer into Kimura's temple would be amusing.
>>27404839Creeper's actually good for us, with the senses and all. Speed-traits would've just had to book it, Strength would've had to hope we landed a hit.
>>27404744Agility:>1: Just above peak human.>2: Toad.>3: Beast.>4: Nightcrawler.>5: Spider-Man. Phasing:>1: Short bursts, can hurt oneself phasing, but not too badly.>2: Longer bursts, can't hurt oneself phasing but it still ejected out of the substance if you materialize in it.>3: Sustained, substances move out of the way once you unphase inside them (though you can still fuck it up on a bad roll if you try this. No insta-kill power is without risk). Electrical attacks no longer affect you will phased.>4: Temperature and electricity no longer effects you while phased.>5: Light based damage no longer affects you while phased.>Light Armour: Each level gives you an addition defence bonus. Light armour is for agile dudes, though, and above a certain level it provides nearly zero benefits. It can reduce the effects of small arms, but don't try to tank a HMG or some She-Hulk tier punching. It can be switched on and off, like Colossus' armour.
I have to say as much as I understand how useful phasing is, I'm never voting for it. I love our standard powers and personaly feel people are only voting for phasing because they want to become some unkillable god mutant. Where's the fun in that?
>>27404805so we're pic? or Rogue or Synch or Mimic or Hope or Super Adaptoid or Kl'rt or Omega
>>27404894>my opinion and feelings are more right than yoursThanks, bro!
>>27404875Phasing question. At what level could we match our wavelength (Phase cycle? Terminology?) to another phaser?
>>27404894same, plus its too similar to our current powers.
>>27404875Can you give me info on Invisibility levels as well? I want to know what the tier 3 invisibility was.
>>27404895No. Rough has Vampiric Touch 4 (I'm betting 5 is instant, which hers is not).
>>27404947no longer chameleonic. full invisble. no shadow. light passes through
Yeah, the imitation thing is a wonderful coincidence and I have considered doing something. Like adding powers you can buy when new superhumans turn up, perhaps limited by your Relationship level with them. Still not sure about it, though.That said, there's still one superhuman you've met but have yet to mimic at all.
>>27404894>>27404927>>27404941God forbid that we're not the killing machine you all want to seem to vote for. How do you rationalize lifeleech or predator sense or vampire touch?We're not a combat mutie, we're a sneeky git mutie.
>>27404971Oh really? I thought adhesive touch came from him.
>>27404971were a mutant Persona chameleonjesus
>>27404976Sneaky gits tend to be rather good at murder.
>>27404971maybe we're muties only?>>27404976>predator sense>not a pro stealth choice
>>27404989Haven't purchased it.
>>27404971we never touched him, clearly our powers only work by touch.We should give him a nice consoling hug some time soon...
>>27405002Does that mean fastfood restaurants should be held accountable for every death attributed to heart disease?I too can create false equivalencies.
>>27404976Because not wanting phasing clearly means I want to be a killing machine murder hobo. No other options exist.
>>27404947Level 4 makes other objects invisble(no more fly dart gun)Level 5 makes people invisibleSenses level 3 heat visionSenses level 4 senses are equal to LauraSenses level 5 spider man levels of broken.
>>27404971Not yet, but the senses will grow to fit, hopefully. And maybe a point in wall-crawling, someday. But we're pretty agile, so that might count.>>27404976Predator sense is handy for running away by finding them first.
>>27404925I never stated my opinion is more right than yours. I just stated my opinion. If phasing gets voted in I'll go along with it. I'm just saying I won't vote for it.
>>27404947True invisibility instead of chameleonic. So light now passes through us instead of our skin matching pigment to our surroundings. We no longer have a shadow when invisible and I think there's only minor lending around us when we move (as a function of our concentration), right now our running camo kind of fails to match our chanting surrounding in real time. Oh, and we should be invisible across the entire light spectrum now unless I'm mistaken.
>>27404971I can't wait till we get level 5 agility and senses.
>>27404934You could TRY at any level. It'd be much easier as you go along, though.>>27404963This Vampiric Touch is nothing like hers. It drains the vitality from people and rejuvenates you. She drains memories and powers.>>27404947see>>27404966Level 4 allows you to take one person or two midgets into the invisibility effect with you. You can also maintain an invisibility field around something very briefly after you stop touching it.Level 5 is "Step into my invisible automobile, I assure you it's there, just... invisible." Also you can keep things invisible after touching them a little longer.
>>27404971Adhesive touch/enhanced agility anyone?Btw, what lvl of adhesive touch do we need to be able to stick on walls?
>>27405029plus smelling them.
>>27405055level fucking 1
>>27404894>I love our standard powers and personaly feel people are only voting for phasing because they want to become some unkillable god mutant. Where's the fun in that?If you >>27405035 didn't want to sound like a preachy asshole, then why type like a preachy asshole? There's no need to carry on past "I won't vote for it because I don't like it."
>>27405024That was retarded, congratulations.I was thinking more the way a crocodile is sneaky and murderlicious.
>>27405029Final level of Enhanced Senses is indeed basically Spider-Sense. Coincidentally, the level of Enhanced Strength you're capped at it roughly near Parker tier.
>>27404966Excellent, that's all I wanted from invisibility in the first place. As far as I'm considered, I'm done with invisibility and only vote for stuff that'll increase our mobility and lethality.
>>27405046Oh, but invisibility only ever covers, well, visibility? There are no provisions for scent or sound available? Not a problem or buyers remorse, just thinking that we might need to find a way to shower more regularly.
>>27405055Level 1 dude.
>>27405090Can't Peter toss cars?
>>27405064Then I'm totally voting for Adhesive touch next time so we can become an invisible wallclimber and so that we can keep the theme going.
>>27405090You said light Armour becomes useless at a certain level and the returns you gain from each level is less, so what is the point of getting it past level 2.
>>27405126Depends on a car I think. And on the version of spiderman.
>>27405126Yeah, he just holds back so he doesn't kill folks when punching,>>27405129We getting Shadowrun Infiltrator now.I will fully back whatever lets our chameleon elf look in 2 directions at once.
>>27405129I think it was confirmed that with the strength to pull it of level 1 is enough to rip a guys face of
>>27405129I like to think of our powerset as being a highly evolved sort of lizard, such as the noble gecko, so I would be cool with that. We also need parkour levels of agility with how much we run away.
>>27405126Depends on who's writing him, but usually yes.
>>27405141I think the point is there's not a lot to be gained from getting it past 2.
>>27405126http://marvel.wikia.com/Spider-Man_(Peter_Parker)#Abilitieshttp://marvel.wikia.com/Power_Grid#Strength:800 lbs-25 ton range
>>27405163That's a higher level. One of the spider clones was an example for that level (Kain? Kaine? )
>>27404971following this logic we could pick up light or medium armor because of our contact with kimura.
>>27405090>Strength CapIf we - and I know it doesn't matter since we're capped at 3 - ended up getting some plot power along the lines of imitation and some how ened up with our good friend hulk or best bro Thor ( this is a hypothetical), could something like Strength 6 get unlocked? Or would that be an alternative prereq for buying lv 5? Just trying to see how big the sandbox has the potential to become.
>>27405209That is a fairly substantial range.
>>27405110Yep. It does what it says on the tin. Enhanced Agility can help somewhat with stepping lighter.>>27404839You are corect. I can't tell you about the other foils, though, as they are still out there in the sandbox and you may run into them eventually.>>27405126He can indeed. You'll not be quite as strong as him if you push to 3rd level, but you'll be close. For perspective, 5 is Molly Hayes strength.>>27405141Well, no, that's not exactly what I said. Light Armour keeps getting better at blocking what it can block. But it will never block, say, a Barret, because that's out of its weight class entirely. Its advantage compared to Medium Armour is that it doesn't restrict your agility or impede stealth.
>>27405166With a hint of fae as well, where our lightning comes from.
>>27405242All we need to do is buddy up with tony stark. Hell, I think capping at 3 is just our mutant powers. We can combo that with tech, magic, and radiation because comics and get whole new templates of powers.
>>27405247Yup, so yes we could throw a car.
>>27405265Nah, we're just a new fangled electric lizard-elf.:muties:>>27405256If I need to suck your d to get phasing, Crusty, just let me know and I'll get it done.
>>27405256so we will be able to throw 800 pounds or 1 ton?>>27405209based on this
>>27405215Nah, you could do it at Level 1. Kaine's adhesive grip is identical to Peter's (Peter's even done the Mark of Kaine once or twice, when super pissed), he just uses it differently.What you'd need to pull off a Mark of Kaine is enough leverage, not more levels in that. High Adhesive Touch levels start to get more along the lines of Mayday Parker's version of the ability.
>>27405277It would be pretty sweet if we could loot Tony's superbrains.
>>27405256So the more we level light armour up the it covers up and not how strong it gets.
>>27405311Btw do you have a website or pastebin or something where we can look at the power templates that are available to us? I understand if you want to keep some other powers a secret.
>>27405329Not...really. It gets better at blocking what a light, flexible armor is good at blocking. (Cut resistant, rupture resistant, bashing maybe but probably non-existent, kind of puncture proof depending)
>>27405311Ok, so what would level 5 adhesive touch look like?
>>27405242It's somewhat possible. However, something like that would be more likely to happen once Homeless Mutant Quest has changed a great deal. It'd basically no longer be HMQ by then. It might even be renumbered, in true comicbook fashion, as Cosmic Mutant Quest or some shit.>>27405309I'm thinking around 1500 pounds.>>27405329No, it gets stronger. It just has a set limit. For example, lvl is likely to turn aside knives and will probably reduce the damage of small firearms. Lvl five will bounce small arms fire off you with ease. However, it will never stand up to, say, a sustained burst from a HMG. Or a laser cannon. Or whatever.
>>27405370one time Juggernaut pulled Spider-man off a brick wall.a good chunk of the wall came off with Spider-man
>>27405404well thank you for the answer, and i can see light Armour being used for ohshit moments.
>>27404004Does strength come with thoughness?Kind of hard to punch shit when you break you own hand doing it.
>>27405350Not at the moment. I am making one.>>27405370You'd be able to adhere to a wider variety of stuff, and you'd be able to make surfaces you have contact with adhesive for a good range. You'd also be very very very hard to drag off shit.By the by, thread is up in the archive, but I'm tired and fucked up the title.
>>27405530Fucked up you did indeed
>>27405530Is the adhesive touch something along the lines of lvl1. make yourself able to stick on shitlvl2. ability to let things you touch stay sticky if you wantlvl3. ability to reduce stickiness, making them slipperylvl4. can shoot the stickylvl5. stickystring requires ridiculous strenght to break
>>27405495Nope. That said, comicbook physics are in effect. You won't be breaking your hands on anyone's face.
>>27405530http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.htmlWe can tell by the looks of the messed up title.
>>27405578Mostly. Though there is no shooting the sticky.
>>27405404>light armorBut it will never be able to protect us from say, a biological father/primary donor's adamantium claws, right?
>>27405530next time archive it at the beginning
>>27405624thats where medium and maybe heavy will come into play.
>>27405404Out of curiosity, if the other 2 foils are running around NYC somewhere, are the other 2 mutants we could have been (mini-bamph and tank) also running around NYC somewhere?
>>27405404Would it be safe to assume that the full lvl 5 light armor would essentially be similiar to a ballistic vest against bullets? Like nothing that's not designed to pierce vests isn't going through from the non-weakspots.
>>27405624Adamantium seems to just go through anything.>>27405650YES.
>>27405605Ok, but can you make a gunk of it and throw it?
>>27405605Wait, so if we can make other things sticky, could we permastick an adamantium blindfold (or just annoying, near indestructible fridge magnets) to Kimura?
>>27405691Yes. In fact, that's exactly how it is.
>>27405693Homeless Mutant Quest will now turn into Homeless Mutant Shanty Town Mayor Quest.
>>27405693>Read 1st thread>Ceramic Like SkinOfficially requesting that the Tank be a female, of, say, Cantonese descent, who goes by the moniker of "China Doll"You know you want to.Go full Silver Age all up in this bitch.
>>27405693Will we ever meet them and how will you decide their powers?Like will they each gain an xp point every time we do and choose an upgrade similar to their play styles.
>>27405717although, >implying it already isn't with Noriko, Kevin, and Laura in tow
>>27405707No. The sticky isn't a gunk, it's you doing weird shit with the electron structure of things you're touching.>>27405710Not permanently.>>27405643Gut idea.
>>27405746Welp you made me want to go search for them once we are done with the creeper.
>>27405736>implying I haven't already been doing this>>27405734...That could be integrated. That could very well be integrated.
>>27405717Hey, someone's gotta found the Murlocks, and if it isn't us I say we either take the job of glorious leader or find some legit way to slip the sentinel net and head either for Boston or Philly.
>>27405771I just wish I had a cunning linguistic play for the teleporter. I'll stew on it and let you know friday/sunday when you make the next one.
>>27405771senile or absent minded old teleporter>"sorry my boy! my mind seems to be more than one place at the moment!"
>>27405778I'm thinking the easiest way is to get a boat and sail down the coast, and then beach it/swim in to Boston harbor.If we really wanted to, we could take it all the way around Florida, beach it in the bayou somewhere in LA, and then cheese it west. I imagine the security in the south is a little more lax than in the richer northeast.
>>27405771If we take claws, will we eventually be able to shoot them and will shot claws be able to be charged with our touch powers as long as they're alive?
>>27405771Too bad we're not named William so our codename can't be Inviso-Bill.
>>27405813That probably all depends on whether the sentinels have a network of aerial drones to scout for them. Since this world seems to take the whole "anything in defense of the mutant threat!" thinking seriously, I wouldn't bet against it.
>>27405795I've had an idea for a teleporter that makes portals, runs a transportation service with his powers. $5 gets you to any part of town in an instant, call it the You-Go Company. Yes, I AM watching Wakfu right now. Probably not going to happen with mutants as they are here.
>>27405813Yea, but they're probably more intolerant in the south as well of hoboes AND minorities.
>>27405898It's DANNY PHANTOM!
>>27405904If we're on a fishing trawler it will probably evade must cursory glances.>>27405922Eh. A bunch of raggedy teens in a janky pickup in 'bamer or Louisiana isn't really suspicion arousing.
>>27405898>>27405931That's already in the quest where they take Galacta to prom.
>>27405952I know, I was hoping everyone but me forgot about it so I could recycle the joke.
>>27405889Fourth level claws can, indeed, be shot. They take over a day to regenerate, however. I'm considering them channeling touch attacks.
>>27405950Anybody gets a closer look at us can tell that we're a mutie, which is why it's a blessing that we have invisibility.
>>27405965Nope, I just read all a them again, so we'll have to work harder for a funny name for our charming lizard-elf of mystery.
>>274059735th level channel maybe with only 1 touch at a time or something? I mean it would be a mighty dick move to put sticky claws with lightning, vampirism and paralysis on it. Nobody can remove it.
>>27405974Silly hat and aviators, bro. Mutieness 100% concealed e-z.
>>27406007What's our hair color?The Ginga Ninja
>>27406024We also have pointed ears. ...omgWe could disguise ourselves as LARPersNobody will be wondering why the team wizard is shooting lighting and turning invisible as well.
>>27406024Silly hats are a hurtful mutant stereotype.Check your privilege flatscan.
>>27406068lol'd.>>27406050The silly hat is large enough to hide the ears. Or we just let his hair grow out to cover the ears. Or we just say when mommy and daddy are also auntie and uncle and grandma, there're gonna be some biological issues we gotta deal with.
>>27406068is dat a Nite Owl hat?
>>27406092It appears so.
>>27406134Ooooh, poor Frank
>Be phasebro since first thread>Come in late>See we got 2 x pointsThe pain.Well, at least we can gloat and say "I told you so" when we inevitability at hand cuffed by the police.
>>27406197Or pinned by Kimura. Or trapped in a thousand other places.I don't want to gloat, though. I just want to have it.
>>27406111That gives me so many ideas. 4th level invisibilityGo to a dude and tell him that he must take the ring to mordor because he is resistant to it's evil magics. When he says we're crazy, just tell him to wear the ring, it'll turn him invisible. *Poof*>HOLYSHIT I'M THE CHOSEN ONEI must go, Gondor calls for help.Then just hide and stick to walls and see what he does.
>>27406210Kimura has indestructible skin right? Couldn't we just phase past it to put a knife in her heart/brain?
>>27406247That's Phasing level 2 or 3 ish. But yeah, that's one way to solve the Kimura problem. It'd be easier to leave a softball in there or something, though. Maybe a melon.It'd just make an even bigger mess, though.
>>27406068Oh Molly, you have one of the most writer-dependent power levels of any mutant.Actually, fair question, how strong is she in this universe?
>>27406269>get a penny>"Penny for your thoughts?">*phase penny into her brain*que laughtrack
>>27406247We could, but pretty much all touch powers, except the sticky one will be effective against her from level 1. So our electrotouch will ignore her skin, but can't kill her yet as it's only tazer level right now and we need to bump it up to lethal levels or have Kevin dust her or Noriko to disintegrate her.Fact that we haven't yet mentioned to Laura for reasons unknown. I think we should tell Laura at somepoint that these two kids can probably destroy her if they'll touch her.
>>27406269>Could of had the power to kill Kimura>People voted to be able to zap people a littleAs much as I love this quest. The player base can be retarded.
>>27406300We don't need to make it lethal. Incapacitate her first, then snap her neck. Invulnerable skin, not so much for the insides.
>>27406247lvl 3 phase required to replace stuff we phase in, this means we could walk to her and as she hits us, phase in and out and she'd be dismembered.lvl 2 means no injurieslvl 1 means objects take chunks from us occasionally, but we've got healing power that'll deal with that.
>>27406300He skin is probably a great insulator, I mean she survived the blast in the innocence lost comics without a scratch, I doubt electricity would hurt her
>>27406333She's not immune to to electrotouch. We'll be able to kill her with it on 2nd level electro touch.
>>27406360I think level two will do it, it displaces things to stop us from being injurded
>>27406380Level three touch causes visible burns, good for torture. Death, not so much
>>27405973I'm still not sure how I feel about projectile claws. Not that it wouldn't be awesome and extraordinarily useful, it just feels off from what I expected the power set to be.
>>27406366Crusty confirmed that it works on previous thread. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27347899/#p27353468It's not a great insulator, but it does mitigate it somewhat. However, if we just touch her in the skull, we could probably take her out as we are, it doesn't take that high voltage to destroy the brain.
I think you're overestimating our current healing factor.
>>27406435It takes significantly less to kill a person with electricity than it takes to burn him.
>>27406473Crusty said that lvl 1 phasing won't take out limbs or vitals. We're capable of dealing with nonlethal wounds decently.Unless we, you know, do something REALLY stupid.
>>27406473he said all it'd do is shave off some skin/soft tissue if we had a booboo.but we've got Karma for that too. no problemos, amigo.
>>27406435You can kill a person with defibillator shock, but they don't burn from it. Keep pouring that voltage? Unless she has deadpool level healing factor, she probably can't recover from it.
>>27406575I could nitpick, but I think we can both agree that some non-lethal wounds could still prevent us from making a rapid escape, or, you know, walking. A lowly pulled muscle takes at least most of a day for us to heal at the moment. Or at least that's the assumption I've been laboring under.>>27406617I can still see that backfiring, but admittedly I do feel reassured.
taserhands+ her eyeballsalso, we are not alone Noriko would probably be more useful
>>27406683Besides, that's only in rolled applications. For non-combat/stressful power usage it works as intended, problem free.
>>27406617It should be noted that there are a few powers always skirting the edge, that I'm constantly looking over or revising. Phasing is one of them. For example, I'm considering moving matter displacement up to level 4, and making level 3 'you can phase larger stuff with you'.It's a hard power to balance, but I want it to be an option because people clearly like it.
>>27405717Come to Scar City. Ask for JJ. He will help you.
>>27406846no, just call it The Scar
>>27406776I like it because Kitty is one of mai waifus and also because it's a ridiculously awesome travel/utility power.I just wanna phase around and do stuff. And not even the criminal things, just normal things.
>>27406864It needs a sexier or more mysterious name than that. Like, "The Hotel," or "The Farm," or something like that.
>>27406776How about making the matter displacement lvl 4 and lvl 3 as 'you can phase out people who are touching you' Because matter displacement is an instakill touch ability that's effective on pretty much anything.Hell, I wouldn't mind if that was a lvl 5 ability considering how powerful it can be if applied properly. You're literally chewing chunks of reality out of existence, that's pretty fucking powerful.
>>27406877I just want phasing because how ridiculously well it would blend with our dude. We would be pretty much the ultimate getaway dude.
>>27406776I don't know if you're still around Crusty, but I just had a thought and some questions.9/11 and the war on terror etc. all happened, right? And you mentioned that there have been several NYC shattering events as well.How do people rationalize terror vs. mutants/galactacus/Dr. Doom/etc? Is Ground Zero still considered hallow? Do other sites of destruction take on the same holiness? Or are events like Galactacus considered an act of god/force of nature and people just keep trucking and rebuild imediately?
>>27407049And all the exploration we could do in the scar.
>>27407088NY in this universe has lots of contingencies, and with so many superheroes around, many events that would be era-defining tragedies in our universe are resolved with far less bloodshed.9/11 is probably rather unique due to the human element behind it. It's not quite the same as being attacked by Skrulls. That's a WAR against a more advanced alien species. 9/11 was a bunch of dudes nobody in America considered dangerous to them unexpectedly destroying a cultural symbol and ending thousands of lives.There is, however, a prominent disaster site that has the same if not greater psychological weight as Ground Zero, though.>>27407007That's basically what I was considering. 'Larger objects' would pretty much mean 'people and people sized stuff'.
>>27407088Considering what happens in NYC pretty much daily, I doubt anybody would REALLY give a fuck about 9/11, I mean 2 buildings get knocked down, pish posh, they get annual destruction on much widel scale annually.
