You lean against the wall of the train station, standing out of the way of the flow of people. You're on your third can of beer today, and all of your belongings are in the duffle bag at your feet.You have fucked up your life royal.Keio University kicked you out and smeared your records, which means that the companies that you were applying for wont touch you with a ten foot pole. Not even your safety.Hopefully, your parents will eventually start to talk to you again, or at the very least let you back into their apartment. Right now though, they're all 'You're no child of ours!'And why has this happened, and for what? Your stupid, stupid, stupid principles and big mouth.You're in a really dark place, but the train arrives too quickly for you to consider jumping.The doors open and you see a face from your past. It's Sato Fumihito. He was a pretty close friend in elementary school, but then his folks moved.He's dressed in the weirdest looking dark blue jumpsuit and he has some kind of backpack on his back that looks like it crawled out of an electronic store's dumpster. He's talking on a cell phone and has another odd looking gizmo in his hand.He makes his way through the crowd of commuters and comes out right next to you."Yeah, I just got here." He says. "Okay, SongBird...right. I'll..." He turns to look at you and his eyebrows shoot upwards. "I'll call you back when I get there." He hangs up. "Hey!" He says cheerfully. "Long time, no see! How you been ->Name?>Sex?(The movies and game are considered canon here, and certain episodes of the cartoon are as well, The Collect Call of Cathulu, and any episode done by JMS, for instance. Extreme Ghostbusters is also canon.

>>28009567Harutora Daisuke, Male
Fuck. Why is this starting when I have work in 5 mins?> tfw you will never get to join Ghostbuster International
>>28010622"How you been Daisuke? Man, it's been years. As the ancients say, 'A Chance Meeting Of A Friend Is Of More Worth Than A Gold Coin!' Or something like that."Oh wow. Sato hasn't changed in the slightest. Messy brown hair, round face that never lost it's baby fat, and he still has that scar on his chin that he got from when he pretended to be Astro Boy and jumped off the top of the slide on the playground. He's also still making up 'Ancient Sayings' that make no sense at all."You waiting for a train or something?" He asks. "Cause I'd love to grab a drink and catch up. I mean, I've got my new job to do, but that'll be fast. Heh, it's so awesome, wanna see?"
>>28010725> Sure, whatever.> Uhhh, what exactly do you do?> Piss off, I have plans to be drunk and you aren't in them.> Other
>>28010759>> Uhhh, what exactly do you do?
>>28010725>Uhhh, what exactly do you do?I know we've been disowned and are considering suicide, but at least we're not a laughingstock.
Throne's sake, get a goddamned trip if you want to run a quest.
>>28010808>>28010910"Uhhh, what exactly do you do?" You ask.Sato puffs up his chest with pride and shows you the decal on the shoulder of the jumpsuit he's wearing."I'm a Ghostbuster!" He says.Oh wow. You've heard of them. They're like...a bunch of con artists. One step up from the people who have TV shows where they run around in empty houses looking scared. You know...that's just perfect. You get your life ruined for trying to be ethical, and Sato, your friend from childhood with a gigantic hero-complex is now scamming people out of money.Or maybe it's not so bad, maybe he's the one being scammed. Either way, you see the looks people are giving him as they pass. He looks like a lunatic with his jumpsuit, doofus smile, and that weird-ass backpack."So, whaddya say?" He says. "Come see me do my thing, and then we get a drink and catch up? I'll buy."> "Sure. As long as you're buying."> "Sato, are you really going to steal someone's money?"> "Sato, please tell me that the Ghostbusters haven't taken you for much."> Other
>>28011433>> "Sato, please tell me that the Ghostbusters haven't taken you for much."
>>28011433>"Sato, please tell me that the Ghostbusters haven't taken you for much."Well, we're ethical.Until a poltergeist throws us into a wall, ghosts are still the stuff of stories.
"Sato, please tell me that the Ghostbusters haven't taken you for much." You say."Huh?" Sato asks. "What do you mean?" He asks as he starts to make his way out of the train station and towards the street.You follow him."I mean, how much did they charge you for your uniform, that pile of junk on your back, some so-called training. Do they expect you to make your OWN Ghostbusters who report to you?" You ask."What? Like one of those multi-level mark-oh no no no." Sato shakes his head. "Daisuke, they're nothing like that!" He says. "This stuff was all free. We've been making money hand over fist...well...okay is hasn't been FLOODING in...and we still live in the Dumpling Factory...but things are good." He smiles. "Heck on this job along I'm going to make 5000 yen, at least! And that's just for about twenty minutes of work!"Great. So Sato's conning people...or being USED to con people."I have no idea where I am." Sato mutters, looking at a map on his smartphone. "Daisuke, do you know where the SongBird Karaoke parlor is?"You're familiar with it. It's about two blocks from here. It's a place that normally caters to a certain type of clientele...the girls and men who go there often end up in one of the love hotels, near by. Also the owner's kind of scummy. One of the reasons that they created 'Women Only' train cars. Well, if Sato has to scam anyone, at least he picked a good target.>"Yeah, it's this way, follow me.">"Yeah, it's two blocks that way. Can't miss it.">"Sato...please don't do this.">"Wait, did you say 5000 for just twenty minutes?"> Other
>>28011787>>"Wait, did you say 5000 for just twenty minutes?"

>>28012025>>280118595000 yen for just twenty minutes? This you have GOT to see."Yeah, it's this way, follow me." You say."Thanks man." Sato says. You both start to walk down the street. "So, what have you been up to man? You go to Keio now, right?"> Lie> Tell the Truth> Evade the question> Say nothing
>>28012099"No, I'm not." Evade all questions after that.
>>28012099>Evade the question"Not really. But what about you? This a full-time job, or just part-time while you're in college?"
>>28012131>>28012135"No. I'm not, not really." You say. "But what about you? This a full-time job, or just part-time while you're in college?""This is a full-time thing." He says. "And I'm glad for it. It got me out of cow-town." He says. "Last thing I want to do is look at empty fields of grass and shovel animal crap."You arrive at the SongBird. "Okay," Sato says. "Umm...I'm not expecting anything bad but...maybe you want to wait out here for a bit? I mean, this stuff can get a bit...technical."> "No way, I want to see this."> "Okay, I'll be out here."> Other
>>28012422>> "No way, I want to see this.I could use a good laugh after the month I've had.
>>28012422>> "No way, I want to see this."Let's see this con in action.And when it turns to be real, it'll be great reacting to it.
>>28012453>>28012458"Heh, after all you've said to hype this up? No way. I want to see this. I could use a laugh." You say.Sato nods. "Okay, but follow me and do what I do. Oh...wait wait wait..." He reaches into a shoulder bag he was carrying and pulls out a thick three ring pocket binder. He flips through it for a bit, and then tears out a sheet. "Sign this." He hands you a piece of paper.You look at it. It's a liability wavier. One in very small print, but probably one of the longest you've ever seen. It even has 'exsanguination,' ' temporal displacement,' 'skeletal liquefaction,' and a bunch of other laughable terms.The gist is, no matter what happens you can't sue Sato, Ghostbusters: Japan, or the Ghostbusters franchise.Sato holds out a pen. "This is protocol." He says.> "Fine." Sign.> "This is a joke, right?"> "I thought you said that you weren't expecting anything bad?"> Other
>>28012637> "Fine." Sign.It's obviously part of the show, and it's not like we're the ones being conned.
>>28012637It's a free show. Might as well sign it.
>>28012831>>28012728>>28012716Sato's playing his part to the hilt. Fine. You sign the form and hand it back to him."Great! Protocol's important." He says as he goes inside, you following him.The SongBird Karaoke Parlor and Cafe has pink tinted windows,and a large reception room with a white tile floor.Sato walks up to the front desk, where a nervous looking woman in a slightly too-tight dress is nervously sitting behind the desk. There are other young girls, and older business men sitting around in cushy looking chairs. The girls are leafing through magazines, chatting with each other and the men are trying to not get caught leering at the girls. They all have that look of people who are mildly annoyed by waiting. One of the men looks at Sato with his jumpsuit and flashing backpack and sighs, muttering "Finally!" under his breath.It does seem a tad crowded in here. Also, you don't hear the thumping of bass from the karaoke suites down the hall. They emptied the rooms, just for Sato's arrival?"Hello Miss." Sato bows and extends a business card. "I'm the specialist you called in.""Oh...oh!" The woman nods. "Yes, yes...she...it's..." She glances back at the hallway to the parlor rooms. Sato smiles and waves his hands. "No need to get up. I'll handle everything and be done in a few moments."She's obviously relieved, and the mood from the waiting guests is a bit less hostile. The sight of professional looking people with impressive looking tools is enough to make people believe that Things Are Under Control.Sato looks around. "Is the proprietor here?"The girl nods and points to one of the waiting men."Great, let me talk to him." He pauses and then turns to you. "This is boring stuff, rates and forms." He waves his binder. "Wanna do me a favor? I just need you to scan the suite doors, don't go in or anything. Just point this." He holds up the doohickey in his hand. "At the doors. Tell me if the bars go over three."> Sure> Do your own scamming
>>28013039>SureWhy not? We're getting a drink out of this, least we can do is not be a douche about the guy's job.
>>28013039>In Before Class 5 Free Roaming Vapor.
>>28013039>SureIt might not be very honest work, but he's sort of a friend. No reason to make things hard for him.
>>28013039Sure. It's a favour for a friend anyway.
>>28013146>>28013082"Sure." You say as you take the whatever-it-is. This is a farce, but it's a free lunch. If people are openly paying for this then it's at least a legal scam. "Point, hold the button, count the bars?" You ask."Yeah. Thanks." He says and goes to the owner.You go down the rooms, 'scanning' the door to each one. You have no idea how this things works, but it's making some chirping noises, and one or two bars appear on the screen. Once a three. You're at the last suite in the hall when you scan the door and all five bars on the screen glow bright green and the chirping noises change.Sato's back in the lobby, out of immediate ear shot.> Go get Sato.> Yell for Sato.> Go inside the room and see how he's pulling off this scam.> Other
>>28013242>Go get Sato.
>>28013242>Yell for SatoHe might know what's going on, and if nothing else, it'll help him put on a good show.
>>28013242>Go get Sato.Go get him.
>>28013534>>28013276"Sato?" You say. "Hey Sato!"Damn, he can't hear you.You walk down the hall and almost bump into him."Got all the paperwork done." He says. "Something up?""Last room, five bars." You say."What color?!" He snaps. His eyes going wide."Green. Why?" You ask.He sighs with relief. "Alright. That's not so bad. Let's go."You follow him down, handing him the thing-a-mabob that you were using. He scnas the door and nods. "Alright, a class five non-aggrivated PKE source." He nods and takes a deep breath and opens the door and walks inside.You follow him. The suite has the same slightly-pinkish walls, a small plastic table with a book of songs on it, a big screen TV at one end with microphones and a remote lying in front of it. Across from that is a large couch of faux leather that's just a slightly darker shade of pink than the walls. It's completely empty.Roll 1d20, I'll take the best of the first three rolls. Crit fails eliminate the best roll.A '4' means a ghost roll. (This is Japan, 4 = Death.) You don't want ghost rolls.

Rolled 12>>28013796Let's get a 4!
Rolled 5>>28013796Rolling thunder
>>28013835It's a room...Sato seems intent on studying every little part of it but you see nothing.Oh, hang on...there's something that fell between the back of the couch and the wall that you can see from this angle.You're not sure what it is though. It's not very big, your first thought is that it's a small remote.> Try and grab it.> Ignore it and watch Sato 'work.'> Point it out to Sato.
>>28013835No, seriously, ghost rolls are not fun. Have you ever played the Ghostbusters RPG before?They're meant to punish you, and be fun for the GM and not the players.
>>28013909Point it out to Sato.
>>28013909>Ignore it and watch Sato 'work.'If this is a scam, which we believe it to be, let's see how he pulls it off.
>>28013909>Try and grab it.The hell's this?
>>28013909>Try and grab it.It's probably what he's using to set up the scam or whatever.
>>28013909>> Try and grab it.What could go wrong?
>Ignore it and watch Sato 'work.'Let's see what he and the others do.
>>28014035>>28014019>>28013988"The hell's this?" You say as you reach behind the couch. It takes you a few tries, but you manage to grab it and pull it out.Oh, it's a Chyme.They were a knock-off MP3 player when the first wave of them came out. They were actually REALLY good for first generation. Color screen, camera, up to thirty seconds of video capability, read text emails, and they could hold 'Up to 1,000,000 Songs!' as the ads claimed.Too bad that they were expensive as hell. Plus they were the size of a graphing calculator, twice as thick, and heavy. So naturally, they died off pretty quickly.The Chyme has a clear crack along the casing, and it has brown stains on it. Other than that, it looks to be in decent condition.> Try to turn it on> Show it to Sato.> Other
>>28013909>Try and grab it.Oh hey, Ghostbusters! Great timing, I was thinking about showing this movie to the people I live with for Halloween.
>>28014259>Try to turn it on

>>28014259>> Show it to Sato.This is not meta, it's a rare find!
>>28014259>Show it to Sato."This part of your show?"
>>28014259Show it to Sato "Hey, look how cool this is"
"Hey, Sato. Look at this." You say holding out the Chyme to Sato. "This part of your show or something?""Hmm? Ah! Daisuke!" He starts and goes wide eyed. "Okay...Dai...put...that...down. On the table. Very...slowly." He's acting like you have a bomb in your hands. Honestly. Well, better to play along. Sooner this farce is done with, the sooner you'll get a lunch.As you set the thing down, your finger brushes over the crack in the casing.Roll 1d6.

>>28014705Read upthread. 4 is associated with death and considered unkucky.
>>280147054 is an unlucky number in some asian cultures.Just like some elevators in the west don't have 13th floors.
>>28014705There is, if you actually pay attention. They're just not using the number.
>>28014705The same reason some elevators don't have a 13th floor, I'd think.

"Oh...you fucking pimple-faced slut.""Oh fuck...oh fuck..we need...we need to call the po-" Another female voice."Are you crazy? The'll lo-" A third female voice."SHUT UP!" A pause. "Alright. Grab her legs."It does dark.You blink and look at Sato. He's looking calmly at the other side of the room you turn and look and...and...and you're looking at a ghost.She can't be older than 15. She's wearing a school uniform. She has no feet. Her legs just fade away to right below her knees. Also she's slightly transparent.It...She...The Ghost looks like a girl who is in the middle of a horrific puberty. Slightly too tall, her haircut is a cheap one, and she's got really bad acne over her face. You see long red lines down her wrists.You can see your own breath. It's cold enough that you can see your own breath. Sato is flipping through his three-ring-notebook like mad.> "Funny trick, Sato."> "Sato...explain!"> "Who...who are you?"> Run and don't stop.> Other

You back up towards Sato. "Who...who are you?" You ask the gho...apparit...spir...the other being in the room.She just looks at you, and then looks at the Chyme on the table."Okay, found it." Sato says. He clears his throat. "Greetings entity. My name is Insert Na-oh...My name is Sato Fumihito, I am a Ghostbuster and currently appointed representative of the management of the SongBird Cafe, the City of Tokyo, and the nation of Japan. I request an audience, do we have permission to speak to you?"The girl tilts her head to the side confused for a moment. Then she slowly nods, still confused."Excellent, can you understand me?" Sato asks.She nods."Can you speak?"She shakes her head."If entity cannot speak, but has visible form and is responsive, proceed to page 6-D." Sato flips the page. "While we acknowledge your desire to remain on this plane, we must request that your presence here is disruptive to the living, and ask that you vacate to either a different location, or a different state of reality of your choice or convenience."She looks at you and points to Sato with a look on her face that says 'Do YOU know what he is saying?"Sato sighs. "The management wants you to leave."The girl shakes her head violently. Sato winces and waits for a moment. Then goes back to his folder. "Let's see, reluctant but non-hostile...page 21-D." Flip flip. "Ah, okay. We understand that this is a dramatic shift, and are willing to assist you in any way that we can so that your transition process can be eased. Do you have any unfinished business that you feel is necessary to complete. A message that was never sent, or a task to be completed?"(cont)
>>28015073She shakes her head."Were you murdered and you feel that your killer has not received justice?"The girl looks down at her wrists and shakes her head.Sato looks confused for a moment, and then his eyes widen. "Ah. Alright...is there something you need or desire?"The girl shakes her head.Flip "Is there something keeping you here?"She nods.Sato sighs a 'Finally' sigh. "Okay, page 24-D...is this a physical object?"A shake of no."A person."She starts to shake her head, but then pauses and waves her hand in a 'kinda' gesture."So, kind of a person...what would..." He goes through the book and then his eyes widen. "Another ghost, or other such entity?"The girl nods wildly."This ghost that is keeping you here, is it hostile to humans?" He asks.She nods again, eyes wide.Sato grins. "Excellent! Alright, so if we dispatch this other ghost, will you be free and willing to leave?"The girl nods."Good, I have to call in back up." He takes out his phone and then frowns. "PKE interference...alright, stay here with my friend Daisuke. I need to find a spot where I can get a signal. I'll be right back." He exits the room.Leaving you alone in the room...with the ghost girl.> Run away with Sato.> "Hi."> Run to the street and don't stop.> "Wait...what was that about hostile to humans?!"> Other

"Hi." You manage to croak out. Ohhh, Sato is going to have to buy you a very large liquid lunch for this. Holy. Fuck."Can...can you believe that he had a standardized man-wait...what was that about hostile to humans?"The ghost nods. She motions putting a hand to her neck and sticks out her tongue. She's miming someone choking."This ghost does this to people?" You ask.She shakes her head. You relax a little.She holds up three fingers."She's done this to three people?"She shakes her head."She does it three times to the same person?"Shakes her head.You take a deep breath and REALLY hope you're wrong."There's three of them?"

>Ivo Shandor and a group of elite tycoon cultists back in the 18th century constructed New York based on ley lines and astronomical patterns to draw natural spiritual power and ghosts, even gods, in a spiral that fulminated in him and his compatriots becoming godlike beings themselves. Thus explaining the mass spiritual activity in New YorkSure am glad none that applies to Tokyo. . right?
>>28015454But we're the straight man who didn't buy into ghosts and doesn't seem particularly geeky nor sciency.We're like the black ghostbuster.
While this is going AMAZINGLY, I would like to point out that 5000 yen is only 50 dollars American, and that doesn't go as far there as it does here due to it being an island nation.
>>28015335We are Daisuke, Ghost Negotiator."So...do they have a specific trigger. Should I be worried right now, would it be easier to wait for Sato's backup outside and collect your Chyme when the dust clears?"
>>28015499You forget they also had entire teams of archaeologist uncovering ancient religious stuff across the world and bringing it to New York, built a Psionic slime factory and slime sewer system, and sacrificed an entire island of cultists.But Tokyo? Perfectly fine. Just a few shrines and temples here and there.
>>28015499Tokyo has it's own spiritual problems. Like all the damn suicides. Because tokyo has alot of them. I'm pretty sure that forest where everyone has gone to kill themselves for centuries is a giant fucking twinkie

"SATO!" You yell out from the door keeping your eyes on the ghost girl. "WE HAVE A PROB-LEM! SHE SAYS THERE'S THREE YOU HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR!"You turn back to the Ghost Girl. "Why do they have it out for you and the living?"The girl sighs and nods at her Chyme. The screen turns on. And voice start to play."Fuck! So much blood! You know if you hadn't teased her we wouldn't have to DO this!""Not my fault she couldn't take a JOKE!""We NEED to call the police!""Absolutely NOT, my Uncle would KILL me if I ruined his parlor with police and a suicide! Just finish chopping her up! I'll clean up the blood.""Okay okay. You stupid pimply cow!"There's some nasty wet sounds and then a sizzling."Ugh, *cough* you sure that *cough* she won't be found?""No one...*Cough* comes in here! *cough* And I locked the door! No windows, no nothing! She'll disappear.""*cough* *cough* What IS that smell? *cough*""It's the cleaners I used...to...clean up the....blood.""Oh...oh no no no! Tell me you didn't use ammonia and bleeaaa....""You *cough* stupid...bitch...your fault...your fault...."Then silence.The girl looks down at the ground and at her wrist-slashes. She gestures at the Chyme."Your...fault...."The girl nods.> Console her.> Run for Sato.> Run to the basement.> Other
>>28015592>Console HerPoor girl.
>>28015572The ones in NYC were charging 5000 dollars for a job in 1984. That's a bit over $10,000 adjusted for inflation.
>>28015592>> Console her.We're first and foremost a nice guy.
>>28015592>Tell me you didn't use ammonia and bleeaaa...Gah ha haLooks like all 3 of them dissappearred too. Wonder what bone they have to pick to want to come back and haunt the living.
>>28015592Console her."When this is all over, all of you will have peace"
>>28015592Christ. These other Ghosts need a good positron beam up their asses.
>>28015538That 5000 is just the 'Come inside and scan for PKE anomalies.' Treatment OF said anomalies, THAT is a DIFFERENT fee. Not to mention transport, containment, cleansing, follow-up, etc. The fees are all detailed in the Three-Ring-Handbook.Plus there's the sweet sweet merchandising. But Melnitz guards THAT golden goose more rabidly than a pack of hellhounds.
>>28015592Well shit, we're dealing with three Japanese teenagers AKA fucking demon bitches.First, we console the victim, because trauma clearly exists even after death.>>28015623They were also strongarming a swanky hotel whereas we are in a sleazy karaoke hall.
>>28015562>giant fucking twinkieAnd somehow despite already having nostalgia at full force right now, that line just made me even more nostalgic.As an aside: As an Aussie, I've never had a twinkie. What are they like?
>>28015667>>28015668I will accept these explanations. Sorry for nitpicking.Ghostbusters is the greatest film ever. I still want a third.
>>28015686not that good actually. they are kind of spongey
>>28015686They're tasty in that disgusting way that junk food can be. Don't ever eat more than one at a time.
>>28015623Well there's a reason the New York Ghostbusters have an international reputation of being cons.>"That disgusting green blob is up on the 12th floor again, wreaking havoc! I demand a refund right now!">"Sir, if you check the fine print on our invoice...">"Invoices">"Right, invoices, you'll see that your warranty on re-haunting expired some time ago. You should've taken the extended service agreement."That shit would never fly in Japan and the Japanese division know it.
>>28015592>Console her.We are a nice guy, and an ethical man.
>>28015686They're kinda meh to me. Vanilla cakes with cream filling, a bit dry. It's mostly the convenience of a cake with no dairy in the cake itself that makes them popular (reduces spoilage by a couple weeks).
>>28015690The video game is being treated by the producers as a de facto third film.It's actually pretty good that I'd almost let them get away with it.Almost.

Points to her slashed wrists and then points to herself."Ummm...yeah." You say and sigh. "You want to...talk about that?" You ask lamely. "Alright let's start with your name. What's your name?"She opens her mouth and then stops she then goes wide eyed and puts her hands to her head and looks hysterical.She can't remember.The lights start to flicker in the room the more hysterical she gets.> "That's okay!

>>28015732When it came out I spent half the night watching my roommates play the game. I only went to bed because I had a test in four hours.There's a reason why I'm a Bio major now.
>>28015749It was probably due to Ivo's grand ritual taking effect. The city overrun with slime, real world melding into the ghost world, summoning gods, apocalypse and all that.Vigo's painting turned back into a talking Vigo actaully.

> "Okay, let's call you something else for now until we find out!"
>>28015756>It's okay! It's okay!She's been traumatized, certain things being blanked over is understandable, but she needs to stay calm and possibly tell us more about what Sato is going to be waking up as soon as possible.
>>28015756Distract her with movement from the shop to a slightly safer location."Shh, shh, it's all right. We can do that later. What matters is that we help you. Come on, lets walk to the front okay?"
>>28015756>That's okay, calm down. Don't worry, you'll remember it eventually. We'll help you, alright?

>>28015444Pretty sure that whatever we did is small potatoes by comparison. Dude risked his life, and the lives of his family.All we did was flush our chance at a cushy career down the drain by telling our superiors to fuck off. At best, we're Rock.

>>28015856>Aokigahara? I've been there, actually. Beautiful place, but creepy as fuck. It's just so quiet.I'd like to visit if I ever get a chance to go to Japan. Are you allowed on the unofficial trails, or do they make you stick to a main tour trail?
>>28015561Where can I read more on this backstory stuff for ghostbusters?
>>28015818"It's okay! It's okay! We'll figure that out later. Okay?" You say. "For now...for now...ah hold on." You pick up her Chyme. "Let's see if there are any text messages with your name on it."You don't see any text messages from friends. If she had any, they didn't text her. You DO see texts from three other sources, cyber-bullying at it's worse. They insult her clothes, her face, her lack of parents (apparently this girl was an orphan too, was she BORN to suffer?!), even the fact that she has a Chyme...it doesn't let up. There's weeks of this stuff archived."You poor kid." You say. "Alright, forget that. Let's call you something else. How about..."> Nameless> Chyme> Yurei> Other
>>28015856I may visit that forest if I ever go. It's always interesting to see what other cultures find frightening/haunted.>>28015867I may be wrong about the flavor, I haven't had one in years. I preferred donuts.
>>28015856>14 square mile area with no wildlifeOh god that sounds like the scariest place on earth. I'm not kidding, silence in the outside world is unnatural and means something nasty is sneaking up on you.
>>28015897IDW's new Ghostbuster comics are doing pretty good. If I get time on Thursday I might dump it on /co/.>>28015911Congratulations. You put the fear of this place into my heart with that sentence.
>>28015897The wikia I guess.I'm simply remembering stuff from the game, they really put a lot of effort into backstory and all these little awesome things and relics and easter eggs.Like a clock that can tell the time of death. Ray kept it on his desk next to the containment unit as a fan.
>>28015900>Sadako...>On second thought Yurei will do
>>28015911A bit yeah. Aforementioned Aussie...I can't imagine a silent forest. I mean, rainforests are pretty loud if you are listening for nature rather than people and bush the same.I'll toss in another for the 'Would love to visit'. Sounds like it would give me nightmares...but also like it would be fascinating.
>>28015900SatsukiBecause isn't it sad?
>>28015947He kept a clock on his desk to USE as a fan? How?Wait... oh god, it's pointed at the containment unit and it goes haywire, doesn't it.
>>28015900I dunno, what to call her but to call her on what she is feels off after all the insults and putdowns about her. How about something else. Maybe her name can be Galaxy for the Samsung Galaxy?
>>28015967Yep, and lots of other little collectibles like that. Some of them are based on real New York haunting and superstitions and stuff.
>>28015967I guess you can say this is a case*glasses*of Fan Death?
>>28015964>>28015974Because nothing says "shat on by life" like being named Satsuki

She then smiles a little at the bad joke."Okay, Yurei it is th-"And that's when the screaming starts.You look out from the suite to see a form hurled down the hall. You run outside and see Sato, lying on the ground."Your money will be cheerfully refunded sir...as long as you have the receipt and fill out this form...ughh." He slumps to the floor out cold.One of his backpack's straps has unhooked itself.You hear screaming and...feedback...coming from the lobby.

>>28016192I highly doubt that's a proton pack Sato brought, or that the Jap branch wouldn't ensure a buddy system with, you know, walking nuclear reactors. I don't even know if the Jap branch has that type of equipment yet.
>>28016222Well, there's the possibility that if this is the present day that the Ghostbusters have improved their tech to be less unstable and destructive.
>>28016222>>28016253This is taking place post-Extreme Ghostbusters, so this isn't their old proton packs.
>>28016275This. Extreme-era blasters could get pretty small and handy, like Kylie's.
>>28016253Possibly.Still, sending a single man out alone. Even the american branch always had the team system.Though that also means the possibly of some nice upgrades Egon thought of. Explosive boson darts. Stasis field "freeze ray" function. Always remember to only cross the streams when fighting a god or closing an inter dimensional portal. We might have some relatives at hiroshima or nagasaki who can tell us first hand how unfun total protonic reversal can be.
>>28014959Actually I see myself as an American in Korea working at a financial firm. But to truthfully answer your question the south Koreans know they're south and a nation divided. They want to reunite with the people of the north, many of them are family, but they aren't fans of the north government.
You grab Sato and drag him into the suite.Then you do something really stupid.You take Sato's Three-Ring-Handbook and you start to read it.- - Dealing with Hostile Entities. 1-A, ensure your proton pack is in place and properly working. - -You unhook Sato from the backpack, strap it to yourself, and turn it on.It makes a strange sound when it starts up, you feel slightly tingly...what IS this thing running on? Maybe you don't want to know.- - Ensure that you have Wand (Diagram 2-A) and Trap (3-A) ready and charged. - -With some fumbling, you pull out the wand and get that box thing and the small car-alarm fob that operates it from Sato.- - Bust those spectral bastards back to where they came from! (Ensure that you have all forms filled out prior to action, save in XK class scenarios, where it is considered gratis) - -"Take care of him." You say to Yurei. She nods and mouths 'Good luck' to you.You head out down the hall and into the lobby.It looks like nearly everyone has fled, save for the owner of the SongBird and the girl that was behind the corner.They're both being choked by...what the fuck ARE these things?!The...you hate to call these things girls, or even imply that they had been human once. They're wearing school uniforms like Yurei's. Their arms and legs aren't arms and legs, but rather writhing, undulating, twitching cables and cords. Their hair is a mass of stripped bare wires. Ball microphone speakers form their fingers. They have two speaker dishes where eyes should be. They have has red, white, and yellow A/V plugs for teeth, and black slime drips from their mouths.All three of them are floating in the air.Two of them are busy wrapping the hostess and the manager's neck in their cord arms, trying to pull them off the ground. The third is laughing, a horrific sound that sounds like static mixed with feedback.They haven't noticed you yet. You're pretty sure you can use this thing, the manual says it's just point and blast.
>>28016275Actually, game canon is considered primary to cartoon/comic canon but they're very much compatible and don't technically contradict really.The GhostBusters extreme ones were more stable and compact, but seemed less powerful really. Maybe in this game they are separate versions
>>28016344try and talk to them?
>>28016349Separate versions as in, we give rookies the stable weaker ones and only the more advance teams get the walking reactors.

>>28016316Unfortunately, reunification will completely wreck the finances of South Korea for decades if it happens.
>>28016344They're the smaller ones in Extreme, not Kylie's little one but one the guy's had. You DO have all the options that the Game had, but you have no idea how to USE them.This wasn't supposed to be a Hostile run.

>>28017124Or>Comes just to collect the ghost and their equipment>"Sato, you're fired">It's up to us, Sato, and Yurei (whom we must hide and protect from them) to solve the mystery. . .or something>>28017149Enter the corporate beuracracy
>>28017149Four words:Amen.Hallelujah.Peanut butter.
>>28017065You try but...no...it's...just...no...good.The last thing you see before darkness washes over you, is a bright light...and a banging noise. Then...nothing.Dai....Daisuke....DAISUKE! WAKE UP!You start and sit up, gasping for breath."Oh thank then Heavens." Sato says. "You're alive!""Yeeee-haw!" A loud accented voice says. "I TOLD you that fella was a badass. Facin' down three Class 4s! DAMN!""Totally radical to the max!" A cheery female voice says."Yes, he has done quite well to be alive and not dead and also victorious in his actions which were very bologna." Another voice says."Brave, Doctor Griffin. Brave." The female voice says."Ah, apologies."Sato steps back and out of the way. You see three people, standing there and two more smoking boxes on the ground.There's two Japanese folks, and one American woman. The male Japanese guy is quite tall, wearing cowboy boots and a cowboy hat as well as the same jumpsuit Sato has. The girl has her hair done up in the poofiest style you've ever seen and is dyed blue and pink and she has glittering star hair clips in that mass. She's also wearing thick pink eye shadow and glitter lipstick.The american woman has dark hair, pale skin, and it looks like she's wearing orange american-football shoulder pads.Now you know what that light was. It was the light from the street and the banging was these three people kicking it open.Sato's back-up. You smile and say "Thanks.""Easy there Hoss." The Cowboy says. "You sound like ten miles of bad road.""And your throat is, like, totally groady." Say the Girl who apparently never left the 80s.> How's Sato?> How's Yurei?> Who are you?> Other
>>28017232>> How's Sato?
>>28017232>OtherAll the questions at once.
>>28017232>Who are you?
>>28017232>> How's Sato?>> How's Yurei?
>>28017232>How's Yurei?>Other: "Sato, you definitely owe me that drink."
>>28017232> How's Sato? And... yurei?
>>28017232>> OtherWell my life was going pretty bad before. Didn't feel like I was losing anything risking it on something like this.
>>28016388Meh, they'll just lie about things, build up a shit load of debt, then stuff it in another company that's failing to wash it away like they always do. But that's a different topic. Op you're awesome and pulling on the heart string of my childhood as a ran around my house in a ghost buster costume sitting invisible ghosts with a proton pack my parents drove 3 hours to buy me. Can I give you my second born son? (First is gonna be a ghost buster so he is spoken for)
>>28017232>Doctor GriffinIs it...>The american woman has dark hair, pale skin, and it looks like she's wearing orange american-football shoulder pads.IT IS!Kylie mother fucking Griffin.>Who are you?
>>28016388>>28017298Well hey, if WW3 ever gets started chances are no more North Korea, no more problem. Korean unity at last.
>>28017260"Sato," You croak out as the 80's girl bandages your throat. "You REALLY owe me that drink.""Yeah, no kidding." He says."How are you?" You ask."Fine. I mean, I may have a slight concussion, but you remember when I was Gigantor when we were little and had that accident?" He taps his head. "Metal plate, got put in the ol' noggin. I could get hit on the head all day and be fine.""What about Yurei?""Who?""Ghost girl. The good one. Oh, locked door in basement. The remains of all three of the girls are there." You say."On it, come on Doc." The cowboy says and heads off."She's fine." Sato point to the side. You see Yurei there. She waves and smiles at you. "She wanted to thank you before she moved on."A Chyme slides across the floor and bumps into your side. She nods at you as you pick it up. A gift...you think, cause she's got this mischievous look on her face as she fades away. Waving her hand.Sato sniffs and wipes his eyes. "Tears me up, every time I see it." He says."Yeah, sure." You say as you pocket the Chyme, trying to ignore at how the screen just lit up."So, who are they?""I'm Sakura." The 80's girl says. "But please call me Star! It's totally the name I was BORN to have!"Sato rolls his eyes. "Akira's the one in the stupid hat, and that was Doctor Kylie Griffin from Central. She's helping us set up the franchise." He rubs his hands. "Which brings me to what I'm about to ask. You said you weren't in College any more right? Well...not many people can charge in and bust a Class 4.""But I got my ass kicked.""So what? It's not like we haven't." Sato says. "The world didn't end, right? So I call it a win. So, what do you say Daisuke? Wanna join up and be a Ghostbuster?"> Yes.> I hate you. Yes.> NO.> ...can I drink on the job?
>>28017367take it to /pol/ don't need any of that nonsense in my ghostbusters
>>28017382>...can I drink on the job?Because seriously. The guns are real, and we can shoot someone who tries to laugh at us.
>>28017382>I hate you. Yes.Any one you walk away from.
>>28017382>> Yes.Best new prospect we have.
>>28017382>...can I drink on the job?Gotta get our Heibeken fix somehow.By the way, what is it with Japan and that stuff?Seems like if the characters in an animu drink an import beer, it's gonna be Heiny with one letter changed. Even in shows that don't bother to censor other product names.
>>28017382>> Yes. ...can I drink on the job?
>>28017382>> ...can I drink on the job?We really really need a liquid therapist after everything that happened.
>>28017401You pause. Well...beats doing fuck-all and considering suicide. (Although certain death seems MORE likely in this path.)"Can I drink on the job?" You ask."Sure!" Sato says. With a smug look on his face. Oh no...you know what's coming next."As the Ancients Say: 'One Can Drink All One Wants...As Long As It Is Water!' Or something like that." He grins."I hate you." You say. "Yes.""AWESOME!" Star says. "You ain't afraid o' no ghost!"Is it too late to get hit by a train?END EPISODE 1
>>28017382>Yes"Best prospect I have. One condition though: Next time, doesn't matter if it's a routine scan or not, WE WORK IN PAIRS!"
>>28017453>Is it too late to get hit by a train?Trust me, me. You don't want that. That way lies taking orders from an asshole black sphere with a dude inside and atrocious grammar.
>>28016404>You DO have all the options that the Game had, but you have no idea how to USE them.Well this will be sweet when we do learn them in the long run.>Boson dartsVery explosive, basically the grenade launcher version of a proton stream>Stasis fieldEssentially a "freeze ray", turns ghosts and constructs into solid brittle things>Capture streamCan capture ghosts AND move solid objects far heavier than the person (without burning it), like a piano or a large steel beam. Good for whenever a ghost decides to collapse a bookshelf or a builidng on you.What about the slime weapons? Do we/will we eventually have those as well?
>>28017124>Ghost Buster mobile coming in for back-up. We wake up, the ghosts are captured, they offer us a job, end thread. Calling it now.Damn, did I call that shit, or what? It feels good to be the king.
>>28017454Well, these guys are just starting the franchise here so they're probably strapped for manpower. At least, now that you're here it should make things easier.
>>28017491It's not that hard to call the obvious.
>>28017471I hope so, we're gonna need it.
>>28017515Wow, you hurt my feelings so bad, anon, I'm going to go home and cry now.
>>28017453NEXT TIME ON GHOSTBUSTERS: JAPAN"Welcome to the Happiness Filling Dumpling Factory! Your new home!""What is that smell?""That would be the horse."THUNK!"You will know the TRUE power of the world beyond and I will see you sent to HELL! Who wrote this?""Our neighbor.""Is that the reason why the sign is filled with arrows?""Yeah, turns out some miko's have hair trigger tempers and good aim.""What do you mean by Fatal Crockery!?""TEN! TEN! FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S HOLY THERE'S FUCKING TEN!""LIAR! DIE!""RUN!"November 1st 3-5pm PST
>"Ghost girl. The good one. Oh, locked door in basement. The remains of all three of the girls are there." You say.Hey, wait a second. If the dead girls are still locked up, how did the Chyme that recorded them dying get out of there?
>>28017584Ghost levitation.Probably took her a while and lot of effort to do it too.
>>28017584AND WHO WAS PHONE?
>>28017601Then why did she hide it behind the couch?
>>28017566>miko is pissed off we're stealing her business
>>28017584The Chyme was left in the room. Yurei was able to put the sounds of the trio's death on her Chyme. It was easy for her to do because her body was there and 'present' for her death.
>>28017624Ghost magical long-distance recording. Gotcha.
>>28017618She was probably trying to move it to you or sato but dropped it. So she showed up person.
>>28017644Or rather, Psionic Residual Effect and Electronic Imprinting.
>>28017566First you put Kylie in front of us, and now a Miko?OP, you're just ASKING for a waifuwar.
>>28017622Hey, it's not our fault if they can't do proper marketing.For fuck's sake, Buddhist temples have websites for funeral services, twitter feeds for their priests that are making their rounds to let people know if they're late, and Facebook pages for their temples.
>>28017664Kylie is the knowledgeable ara~ ara~ lady of this quest, not a waifu
>>28017688All women are waifus to /tg/.
>>28017688>not liking Christmas CakeBut seriously, the only women we need are beer and our proton pack.
>>28017723And the ghost girl in our phone.
>>28017471>Slime weaponsYou mean the plasm distribution system.In the game it was used to slime ghosts and slow them down, spray invisible objects and revealing hidden doors or fake walls, stop furniture from floating, and neutralize caustic ectoplasm like black slime (that shit burns yo).
>>28017688You know that if you go after her, you're just asking for Eduardo to show up.
>>28017758Black slime doesn't burn, you're body is perfectly fine.It only hurts because its sapping away the essence of your soul/lifeforce.
>>28017775>Kylie is married to him>Eduardo was whipped into taking her surnameBut seriously, Kylie's only her to help start up the franchise. She won't be around long enough to waifu.
>>28017831>It doesn't burn, it just sucks away your soul and lifeforceThat's more unsettling actually
>>28017852> She won't be around long enough to waifu.You underestimate /tg/.
>none of these idiots wanna hold out and score a professional cellist girlYou fuckers are pissing on tradition.
>>28017903I'm against waifuing anyone so far. Not until our team gets a Janine Melnitz.
>>28017723Kylie isn't Christmas Cake, she's Eduardo's used goods
>>28017930Can we recruit HER for the franchise?
So what gods and mythical figures of Japan do you think we might meet?Here's hoping we might be blessed by Hachiman himself one day.
>>28018006There's plenty of possibilities.>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_legendary_creatures_from_Japan
>>28018006Let's stick to monsters, ghosts and their ilk please. It's not like the original crew ran into good/heroic/non-demonic entities barring a handful of episodes/stories.
>>28018042They fought a god in the first film, a wizard in the 2nd, and essentially a wizard trying to become a god in the game.But yeah, that's BBEG endgame stuff. For now we do what we do best, and that's busting oriental ghosts!
>>28017930Oh god, my childhood. . . It's growing into a twisted adult erection. This. . . It's glorious. . . But it ruins my youthful love of ghost busting. Gonna go home and find out more about this. By find out, I mean find some porn of it. Fuck, whose idea was it to make female ghost busters so good looking?
Made a bit of drawfagging of that electronic-schoolgirl ghost type.Hoping to see more types of ghosts/monsters/youkai
>>28018082It's just one figure, put out by Kotobukiya.She has no real details beyond her appearance.Admittedly, that'd make her a good jumping off point for OP to build a character onto if he wants to use her.
>>28018086It's good.But some things only imagination can do justice.
>>28018093>checks it outPretty noice fig, would bu->$60Fug
>>28018308> mom, you remember how you always talk about wanting me to dress up in my ghost buster costume and run around the house like I did as a little kid? > yes dear, can you do that for me? I'd be so happy! > yah, well I've got the next best thing. . . Wanna but me this figurine? > what the fuck is this? ! ? It's cool and I'm half way interested in getting it despite hating the people that collect those things. But I'm pretty sure it would be impossible to explain such a thing to people.
This Quest is Based for a startup, on my phone so can't properly archive if it isn't already done.Ways to be disgraced: in Japan college is usually the easy part, toughest part are entrance exams and Highschool. While applying for the PHD programs in psychology and psychiatric care, we wrote a very unsettling paper about national mental health & suicide rates in Japan, often citing the unspoken aspects of modern culture that make populace overworked, criticizing the vilification of independent thought in a homogeneity enforcing society that ultimately leads to spiking suicides, lower rates of marriage, and grown men jerking off to vinyl figures of fictional middle schoolers.Our advisor told us to politely scale the paper back because it was terribly impolite, we said fuck you and both submitteded it and posted it on our personal blog.The backlash has landed us where we are now.
Whoever archived it, if they see this, should use more tags to make it easier to differentiate from the other Ghostbusters quests.Consider: Ghostbusters:Japan Quest, Shamefur Dispray
>>28020795There's more than one? THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY IN A MONTH!
>>28020962Sorry to burst your bubble, but both of the others died after the first job.But they were entertaining while they were still happening, at least.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghostbusters%20Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/21401954/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/21487311/
