Previous Episodes: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ghost+bustersLAST EPISODE: Daisuke and Star took in a movie, with rather poor previews. You tried to take it up with the staff, but they were otherwise engaged. As usual, debate regarding religious topics got heated, things were said, windows were broken, and Star was asked to come and see some different viewpoints. Daisuke, was detained, having a health-focused discussion with a young girl. He's back on the right side of Reality now, and ready to ruin more people's lives!EPISODE SIX: KILLING THE VIDEO STAR!"So," You ask. "How are we following Akira?""Sana's scooter." Sato says pointing. "I think it can take three."You see a blue vespa...a blue vespa that's seen better days and that's had a home-done paint repair job in places and a stitched seat.You can probably seat three on it...but you have the feeling that you'd be beat by walking old women, in terms of speed. Also that you three will be QUITE close.> Uhh...how about Sato/Sana/I go back to the theater/dumpling factory. And the rest of us follow Akira.> You guys go ahead, I'll find another way.> Time's wasting, let's GO!> Other
>ghostbusters japanI'm puzzled
>>28661222They're Ghostbusters.In Japan.It's a pretty fun ride.
>>28661138>> Uhh...how about Sato/Sana/I go back to the theater/dumpling factory. And the rest of us follow Akira.Man, slow night. Well, I'm here GM! Also, send the one that can drive the best back to the factory.
>>28661138> Uhh...how about Sato/Sana/I go back to the theater/dumpling factory. And the rest of us follow Akira.Send Sana back to the dumpling factory to help coordinate and get us any equipment we need
>>28661138> You tried to take it up with the staff, but they were otherwise engaged. As usual, debate regarding religious topics got heated, things were said, windows were broken, and Star was asked to come and see some different viewpoints. Daisuke, was detained, having a health-focused discussion with a young girl. Heh, for a second there I almost interpreted that literally.> Uhh...how about Sato/Sana/I go back to the theater/dumpling factory. And the rest of us follow Akira.
>>28661586Well, OP took a thanskgiving break so it'll take a while for people to realize he's back, and it's exam time for a lotta college folk.Not that that's a concern of Daisuke anymore fora while.
>>28661846What Daisuke, and everyone else on this crew, ought to be concerned about is heading to the hospital and making sure we're all vaccinated for smallpox. Should only take a few minutes. I'd rather we not be the first sacrificial victim for a new outbreak and pandemic on japan.
>>28662090Would the hospital even have smallpox vaccine on-hand? This is a first-world nation, and believes the virus to be exterminated. They're peace-addled enough to not be prepared.
>>28662151This is asia.The threat of smallpox is very much a thing. even 3rd world nation hospitals there still do it.Having lived in one, i can vouch for it. I have the scar to prove it.
Hells YEAH JGB QUEST
>>28662245Really? According to the WHO, there hasn't been a new case of smallpox since 1977. Also, Japan hasn't had a case at least as far back as that.
>>28662151Japan, like most of the asian nations, is actually very concerned about the potential reoccurrence smallpox or bubonic plague.Japan still does research on smallpox and we bought some vaccine supplies from them a few years ago.http://www.nti.org/gsn/article/us-to-buy-japanese-made-smallpox-vaccine/
>>28662336It's not that Japan has cases, it's that the fear is still relevant.It's of the mindset that the reason we're not getting anymore cases is because we're vaccinating ourselves and if we fail to do that then we'll see a return. Or in case of bioterrorism.
>>28661138Get the whole team>>28661222It's pretty cool, we thought it was game-over last time, though
>>28661667"Sana, can you go back to the Dumpling factory?" You say as you take her helmet out of her hands. "In case Akira got lucky and goes back there with Star.""Someone should also call the cops, P-COC, and Central." Sato says."Money." Sana says."Huh?" You and Sato ask."For the train, morons. And if there's a SCRATCH on my vespa, you will know such terrors that only a Ghostbuster Administrative Assistant can create!" She says.The two of you fork over the money, and Sana walks away grumbling."How's your driving?" You ask."Eh." Sato says. "What about you?""Not great." You admit."Alright, I'll give it a shot. Oh, your pack is in the bag." He points to a big duffle bag, you unzip it and strap on your proton pack."We're going against people though...what does this thing do?" You ask."You'll want to stick to the slime blower or," Sato says as he start up the vespa and follows Akira's trail of destruction. "If you don't mind the smell you could use the boson dart. NOT the pulse. Use the pulse and we have a lawsuit.""What does the boson dart do?" You ask, a little wary."Prolapse." Sato shudders."What?!" You ask, slightly horrified."Oh, hang on, we're going through a series of backyards." Sato says.Roll 1d20 to see how swiftly you can follow Akira's trail. It's easy to follow, since Akira suspended his 'don't hit anything' rule in emergencies. Now it's just 'don't hit anything alive/worth more than 50000 Yen.'
Rolled 2>>28662484Here we go.
Rolled 15>>28662484C'mon 20
>>28662570It's a very VERY bumpy ride, but you manage to follow at a pretty steady clip.Eventually you see the shape of YOMI-1. You've arrived at another area of Tokyo that's been seeing tough times. Empty stores and slummy buildings are present, and there's more than a few homeless people pan handling. It's pretty clear a couple of them are on drugs. You feel a little sense of community pride, seeing as the Reject Zone isn't SO bad off that there's OBVIOUS signs of drug use there....you know if you had just kept your mouth shut you'd probably be half-way into getting some nurse-in-training's skirt off...Not driving a dented vespa through bad neighborhoods towards a large white (but labeled) van with a mysterious box on your back.Life's funny that way.Roll 1d6
Rolled 1>>28662701A semi-licensed nuclear box at that.Life's funny, lets hope death and the afterlife have a nice disposition too.Rolling
Rolled 4>>28662701Let's do this
Rolled 4>>28662785>>28662790Amaterasu almighty. . .
>>28662785>>28662790>>28662830It's official we're cursed.
>>28662785>>28662790There's a man standing there waiting for you.It's not Akira.He's dressed in a white button down shirt, black pants, and...apparently has a towel on his head. It looks like something he stole from a hotel.He holds up a hand and the pair of you stop about 30 feet from the van. "If you wish to see your associates in wretchedness again, you will stop, remove those profane devices and leave them there. You can then approach us and we will talk."> "Let's do as he says."> "You stay here, I'll go."> "I'll stay and cover you, Sato."> "Gun it, ram the fucker."> "It was the Boson Dart that causes Prolapse, correct?"> Other
>>28662957"And how do we know you won't do to us what you did to our 'associates'"
>>28662957Shit, this was a setup. I forget who went along with Akira?Does the PKE read anything on this guy?
>>28662957Obvious trap, is obvious. If we stop and do as he says or split up, we'll be easy pickings for him more numourous crew. >Gun it, try to move around him.
>>28662957Threaten him. They took Star.
Don't we have, like, guns?Nuclear guns?How about we ask this asshole to give us proof he has our associates and reason not to turn him into a pile of burning ash.
>>28662957An obvious trap, but with them ghost rolls, not sure we have a choice but to play along.
>>28663272If it's an obvious trap, the last thing we want to do is play along.I dunno about you, but having a small particle accelerator strapped to your back does leave some choices. At least lets see if we can bluff our way through this before we inevitably drop our packs.
>>28662957> "It was the Boson Dart that causes Prolapse, correct?"We are very displeased with you and your cults conduct. Prolapse for Everyone.
>>28663463It's just like Christmas at Grandma's house!
>>28663190>>28663204>>28663353This>"We'll drop our packs when we drop dead or we feel like. And right now we don't feel like it. Convince us otherwise, what's stopping us from talking right now?"
>>28663660I like it
>>28663190You step off the Vespa and charge your pack and point it at the guy."One: we're not stupid. Two: I'm pointing something INCREDIBLY dangerous right at you." You say.The man takes a step back. You see that 'man' is kind of a loose word. He's older, yeah, but you doubt that he can be called an adult."And finally, we want to see our friends. NOW." You snap. "Or else you have a VERY bad day.""Umm..." The dishcloth-head guy says. "Be cool, okay? Be cool!" He bangs on YOMI's side and the door slides open. Five people in white shirts and black pants get out. You see Akira inside. Bound, gagged, and a little bloody and bruised. He's trying to get free and giving muffled screams and swears. You see more than a few broken noses and black eyes on the cultists."Okay, that's one of them. The other one is inside our Sanctuary.""Get her outside then." Sato says. "And then give us our van back, and we'll go.""We know what you are." The man says. "Ghostbusters.""Yeah, yeah. We know." You say. "Con art-""Godkillers! Heretics! Defilers of the Otherworld." He snaps."Okay." You say. "That's different.""Well...it's nice to be recognized." Sato says with a shrug."What do we need to do to get our friend back?" You say.A pause as they all talk among themselves for a while."Accept our Lady's Blessing and make a Copy of her Blessing. We will ensure that it is spread, as is Her will." He nods. "We will see that as sufficient. Otherwise, we will expose your fellow Ghostbuster to Her Blessing...and destroy the tape used. Thus dooming her."> "Deal."> "Screw you. Star's stronger than all of you AND your lady."> "My counter-deal: Prolapse."> Other
>>28663871>> "My counter-deal: Prolapse."
>>28663871Quick question. Just how loud is the ominous humming from a proton pack powering up?
>>28663950Your pack is already on and charged, the humming is soft, but the charge sound is clear. The people inside the van heard it.
>>28663871"A counteroffer. You all run away, leaving our friend and our property behind. or this." <Fire a short burst into sky>Seems like they're weekend warriors and not dedicated fanatics. So we can scare em to doing what we want. If they don't there's always option prolapse. Just be careful not to hit Akira.
>>28663950Pretty loud.On the brighter note, if by destroying the tape it only means she'll stay possessed we should take comfort. The GB have cleared people possessed by gods before.Unless by destroying the tape it means she'll be killed. That's another thing.
>>28664072>Unless by destroying the tape it means she'll be killed.It probably means just that. We can't risk it on her, but on the otherhand these guys aren't hardcore fanatics so let's see if we can't bluff our way into some more info.Maybe we can get them to talk about their precious godess.
>>28664034>>28664072Righto.>>28664042Then this perhaps will do, with the change that instead of firing into the sky we blast something solid looking nearby to bits as a demonstration.
>>28664042>>28664181I support these motions.
>>28664181"Is that building behind you your place?" You ask."Yes." Dishcloth says."Okay, then this is my counter-offer. You all run away, leaving our friend and our property behind, or this!"You shoot a beam at a window. It explodes into a shower of shards and sparks. Roll 1d20
Rolled 3>>28664303>"Something solid looking">Probably a dumpster nearby, or hell even a tree>A windowMaybe Daisuke wasn't really meant for higher education
Rolled 15>>28664303A window? Well, I guess that will get the point through.
So, I know that Daisuke is a moral, an ethical man, a Japanese man who will not simply go with the flow, even if it means that there have to be a dozen or so "train delays". This is a situation pretty close to the Aum Shinrikyo sarin gas attacks, with these cultists about to spread smallpox. What's a couple "disappearances" when compared to keeping Tokyo, and the entire Kanto Plain, safe from an epidemic?
>>28664517I'm pretty sure these guys aren't with the smallpox ghosts, their with the lady of the tape.That being said, we simply have to inform the P-COC and possible whatever health authorities around here that, in our biological oriented investigations it's come upon us that there is a possibility of smallpox in the city, I'm sure that type of scare should set off a nice few state sponsored vaccination campaigns.
>>28664602>I'm pretty sure these guys aren't with the smallpox ghosts, their with the lady of the tape.But isn't the Lady of the Tape working with the Smallpox Virus? Pretty sure that's what the girl told us when we went to the Well.
Rolled 5>>28664365"You didn't pick a dumpster or a tree?" Sato says."Wanted something showy, and trees could cause a fire." You say.The cult looks at the ettling glass and then at each other. Three of them take off running down the road.There's just Dishcloth, the guy standing by Akira, and one girl. The girl has the 'psycho eyes,' no question."LADY SADAKO! HELP US! WE BESEECH YOU!" She screams up at the heavens.
>>28664685Hit her with the boson darts.
>>28663871You must be under the impression that I am functionally retarded.Fuck you AND you get a free prolapse. Akita, do try to duck.
>>28664346>depriving Sadako of portals is a bad thing
>>28664685>and trees could cause a fire.that's not exactly true either. Usually the proton packs incinerate and char the stuff it hits before a flame can be lit and spread, otherwise the movies would be filled with buildings catching on fire. Hell, the rookie knocked down a tree in the game. But whatever, ignore my nitpikcing again. Artistic license, carry on
>>28664678This we will have to wait and see.Also we really should get vacinnated asap, because we have about three to four days before it's too late assuming we are indeed infected. Not that there's a big chance we are, but man that would suck if we were have to seek a magical cure for smallpox for ourselves. Prevention better than cure.
>>28664685Nothing happens."Huh." Sato says. "So..." He charges up his pack.The girl takes a step back."You CAN'T give INTO them!" The girl says. "This is a TEST of our FAITH!"You see Akira's arms shift. It's clear that he got his arms loose. His eyes are set for murder...or a close proximity.> "Get 'em!"> "Go get our friend. Now."> Other>
>>28664797Let Akira take whoever is closest to him while we get the others to come out with our friend
>>28664797>OtherCalmly take aim at the girl."Sato, you take Dishcloth over there. I'll take the girl. Then we can flip a coin to see who get's the last guy over there."Calmly talking about how we're going to kill them (even though it won't really) should give Akira the distraction he needs to get loose and beat up the last guy.
>>28664797We have the slimethrowers right?Use the sling function on these assholes and paste em to the floor.Then we go inside for our friend while they're all tied up.
>>28664954>Set slimethrower to slime tether and spiderman web these guys to the ground>Move in to apprehend and free Akira>Proceed inside and rescue
>>28664954>>28665023So sayith Ray, "Hose em".
Rolled 3, 11 = 14You take a moment to look at Sato."ホース が!" You shout.Sato turns on the slime net, just as you do.Akira rises up and grapples with the cultist that was watching him, screaming through his gag.Roll 1d20
Rolled 8>>28665157C'mon dice gods here our pleas
Rolled 19>>28665157Hang em high
Rolled 18>>28665157Go go gadget slime
Rolled 12>>28665199Why dice gods? What have we ever done to earn your ire?
>>28665199And that's the sound of our gun gumming up and exploding all over us.
Rolled 2>>28665178>>28665199Oh we are LUCKY sons of bitches!
>>28665199GHOST ROLLYou only get a little slime on Dishtowel, and Akira's in a dead lock with his guy.Crazy Girl dodges Sato's slime and stumbles back, and she looks at the side mirror of YOMI-1.Her face breaks out into a giant smile. "SHE HAS HEARD! SHE COMES!""WHAT?!" All the others yell."Yes! Yes!" She points at the mirror, the broken glass on the ground, and she twirls around. "I can FEEL her! Oh, this is SO much better than just the hallucinations...her love FEELS so GOOD!"> Slime the cultists, it's an easy shot, and they'll get to meet Their Lady.> "Anyone who does want to die get behind me now!"> Grab Akira and run for the Sanctuary to get Star.> Other
>>28665500Grab Akira and Sato, run for Star. Don't face Her
>>28665500>Slime the cultists, it's an easy shot, and they'll get to meet Their Lady.Once infected, they cannot be allowed to escape. They must die here.
>>28665500Oh shit fuck, we've got transdimentional conduits. Slime that shit before she gets through.Also, fuck get our ecto goggles on if we have them and a chance we're at risk for occular possesion.
>>28665500>OtherSlime the mirror and the broken glass to disrupt the conduits.I think we have ecto-goggles; if so, put them on.
>>28665578>>28665616Slime da portals.Put on dem goggles
>>28665616"Goggles on!" You say. "Slime the mirror and the glass and...well anything reflective!""IM NT CLNING TH VN!" Akira shouts through his gag as he pushes the man aside to get his goggles and pack that are in the back of the van.The cultists are...well they look like they're in the middle of a drug high. The men look terrified, and dishtowel says 'Not...today...made...copy...'Either way both men's skin is starting to grow pale and they're sweating.The girl is having a different reaction. She's got her head rolled back in ecstasy, and small little bumps are appearing all over her face. "I knew it! I knew swapping tapes with Kyrie would be the KEY! You could have claimed us at any time! THANK YOU! THANK Y-WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" She says as you cover the last mirror of YOMI-1 with slime. "STOP!"She lunges at you.> Slime her> Hit her> Prolapse> Dodge her> Other
>>28665500>Grab Akira and run for the Sanctuary to get Star.We've got to make sure the whole team's safe. Everything else can wait.
>>28666004Slime baby, slime
>>28666004Slime her like it's her first bukkake video.
>>28666004>OtherDodge her, slime her, then use our boot to kick her down and start kicking her in the head.She's infected, she needs to be immobilized and prevented from infecting others.
Rolled 10>>28666134We should go jidai-geki on these cultists, and use some enhanced interrogation techniques.
Rolled 17>>28666134>Roll 1d20
>>28666158You hose the girl in a deluge of slime, and she slips and falls flat on her face.Sato and Akira hose the other two men as well, just for safety's sake. Akira then punches the guy who was holding him and gags him, as well as the girl."Is...is she gone?" Dishtowel asks."There's a lot of windows, but they're pretty dirty. So I think you got a reprieve. Now, where's Star?" You snap."Inside, third floor...please don't make us go in there! It's full of old tvs!" He begs."Great, next time let's fight her in an electronics shop." Akira says. "Or how about in the scramble. She can come out of the 109's screen and be 50 feet tall!""Well...there's franchise precedent for those kind of creatures." Sato says.Akira glares at Sato and he shrugs."Fuck me man..." Dishtowel groans. "This wasn't supposed to go like this." He slumps down next to his fellow members. "You just see weird shit, get high, and fuck crazy girls like this." He nods at her. "How the fuck were we supposed to know that they'd take this 'Our Lady' shit seriously?""So...you don't worship the ghost girl?" Sato says."Fuck no, man. She KILLS people. But you can get REALLY fucked up while she messes with your head, and there's no needles or dealers or shit like that." He shrugs. "Nearly everyone in the Ring's a NEET. Not like we have much else left.""So how did the whole 'Our Lady' thing start?" You ask.He shrugs. "I think it was Toshi or Hiro, I dunno. Chicks don't fuck junkies, but a High Holy Keeper of Our Lady's Blessing?" He grins. "More tail then when I was even in flight school.""What's your name oh great "keeper?" And where's Star?" Sato asks."Enenra Ichiro." He says. "This got so fucked up. She's inside, third floor. Here." He fishes out a key and holds it out. "We just tied her up.""You didn't show her Her Lady's Blessing or whatever it is?" Akira asks."Fuck no! That shit kills people!"> Go get Star> Send one of the others and continue to question Ichiro
Rolled 10>>28666537>Go get Star, have Akira keep them covered, bring Sato along for backup.
>>28666537>Slime down the cultists for later questioning>Go get StarWe're going to question these cultists before turning them over to the police. We're going to question them using tried and true, traditional Japanese questioning methods.By the end, they'll beg to be allowed to die.
>>28666594>We're going to question them using tried and true, traditional Japanese questioning methods.Track down their parents and shame them into confessing?
>>28666537>>28666592Should also mention that trying to run would be a bad thing as we all likely now have small pox and need to get sealed away by the CDC.
>>28666594Incidentally, make a mental note to call central so we can pitch the idea of licensing slime tech to police forces as a nonlethal crowd-control technology.
>>28666537These assholes need to know that belief is a pretty powerful thing.Hell, a shitload of the greek gods were manifestations of human culture and emotion.We tie up this guy in the backseat of the Yomi and have Akira watch. Lock the doors, feel free to dab some slime on the rearview mirror.Sato comes with us, we're getting star. Goggles on, slime ready there's tv's portals in there.
>>28666673Well, no. We've got big mixing tanks back at the dumpling factory, so we can fill them with water, and tie up the cultists above them. We'll dunk them into the water for 40 seconds or so, pull them up, then spin them around while beating them with multiple staves of bamboo.There's also making them sit in seiza position, and place stone slabs on their knees until their legs break from the weight.
>>28666721Ha, a noble thought. We'd have to get a lot of good feels energy to make it effective. But you know, that door swings both ways. Someone gets angry enough and then their shirt tries to eat them.>>28666707We have about three days left to get retroactively vaccinated to be on the safe side.
>>28666707>we all likely now have small pox and need to get sealed away by the CDC.Right, right. Smallpox is airborne.Yeah, we're pretty fucked.
>>28666707Wait, how did that happened? Are you talking about the small pox ghost in sadako's magical realm? Because he wasn't there at the time IIRC
>>28666752Heh, Daisuke has some interesting thought processes.One day risking our lives to save a single cultist from other cultistThe next day waterboarding!
>>28666773>and then their shirt tries to eat them.Just put a small disclaimer on the slime throwers and we'll be fine. Rioters getting mauled by their own emotions and clothing? We could videotape it and spread it on Youtube for the laughs it would generate. Rioters should be hurt for all the damage they do to innocent bystanders.
>>28666795We're a complicated person, and we're WAY too sober right now to play nice.
>>28666806Hmm, we could get very lucrative selling this stuff to China and N.K.Filthy rioters posing as "protesters"
>>28666795>The next day waterboarding!You have to understand, Japanese TV dramas, especially period dramas, show these kinds of enhanced interrogation techniques not only being done by the protagonists, but as the right and proper way to get information and confessions out of criminals. Once you are in the right, either because you are the vigilante of justice OR you are the sole authority figure that stands between the innocent civilians and the criminals that would prey upon them, your actions are justified as being for the greater good.
>>28666537>that shit KILLS people!THEN WHY WERE YOU DOING IT?!?
>>28666904>THEN WHY WERE YOU DOING IT?!?You heard him; he's a NEET and it meant being able to score with girls.That's literally what he and the other NEET's were killing people for, to have sex with a girl.Is Daisuke the type of man to let this kind of injustice stand?
You know, we were lucky that today the buildings were dusty.Hebus Jebus we're in a city with skyscrapers covered in glass.If it's not already installed, we need to call Central and have them send us the plans for the super slimer they were gonna implement on the Ecto-1 so we can build it.Also the Super Slammer Muon trap for the really big things and to insta trap small ghosts we put in its path if it's not already on the Yomi
>>28666941>Is Daisuke the type of man to let this kind of injustice stand?Absolutely not! So long as he's paid to stand for justice of course
>>28666783>The girl is having a different reaction. She's got her head rolled back in ecstasy, and small little bumps are appearing all over her face.
>>28666941We need to ask this dick why they did it and then repeated throatpunches
>>28667004Come on, Daisuke's responsible for a dozen deaths by now; what's a few more?And those suicides were because of public shame and corruption, while these cultists are murderers and people about to release a para-biological weapons attack on Tokyo. I don't think even Kamen Rider would begrudge Daisuke exploding these cultists like the weekly monster from Shocker.
>>28667081Like I said, Daisuke is a man of JUSTICE and FULL POCKETS
>>28667110Full of his hands, maybe.
>>28667044This could actually work to our favor. We cure ourselves first, and then with living proof of the first smallpox infestation in decades we get all of japan to vaccine itself within the next week and make things extra hard for the smallpox demon.Also we should start wearing red from now on, maybe bring a dog. It doesn't like that.
>>28667131Well, if they were someone elses pockets I'd suppose so. I'm sure a cultist won't notice a few hundred yen missing while we "search for his identity"
>>28667044CRAP how did I miss that, best case scenario it's ghost viruela and the slime is the only cure you need. Worst case we need to prepare for a serious outbreak
>>28666776You take the key."Akira, watch them. If they try anything...""Prolapse." Akira says. "It's not a problem."You go inside the building. It's a flop house. The third floor is a little better. It has an actually locked and intact door, and a 'wreath' made out of video tape on it."We always go to the nicest places." Sato says.You open the door. The place is...well...it's a 'Temple of Infinite Knowledge' created by people who've only seen movies about the American '60s. Bean bag chairs, mattresses on the ground, the only difference is that there's a black and white color scheme, old busted TVs everywhere, and art that's come from the 'black crayon scribble' collection.Also a couple of bongs, snack food wrappers, and condoms.Star is on a mattress tied up and gagged with duct tape. She's trying to gnaw herself free, which is harder that it looks apparently. She perks up at your arrival."Hey. You okay?" You ask as you untie her."Pleh." She spits out her tongue for a bit and then looks at you and grins. "Aren't you a little short for a Ghostbuster?"You roll your eyes. "Wasn't that the 70s?""Classics are for the ages." She grins."You okay?" Sato asks."Yeah, you guys?""Akira's a bit banged up, but nothing bad." You say."Okay, now tell me that there's at least one of those three crazy girls left alive, because I REALLY want to hurt something right now!"> Yeah we have one down by the van.> We should check this place out first.> So the girls are the crazy ones?> Let's get out of here. Quickly.> Other/Combination
>>28667143>Also we should start wearing red from now onLike maybe, a red scarf?
>>28667185>otherIt's too quiet. Follow protocol, we should take out the PKE meter and check the surroundings for anything we've missed.Also keep asking Star for what's she's seen or heard.
>>28667185>Yeah we have one down by the van."Also we might have smallpox now? It's kind of unclear."
>>28667185>Yeah we have one down by the van.>HOSE. DOWN. EVERYTHING.>So the girls are the crazy ones?
>>28667244Scanner first before the hose, we might be covering up something important from being detected.See if we can't get a blue tinge to lead us to one of these so called tapes.
>>28667185Check out building, make sure prisoners are secure, question prisoners, CALL THE AUTHORITIES JESUS H CHRIST
>>28667185>Scanning>Hosing only if necessary> So, the girls are the crazy ones?
>>28667305PCOC and Police
>>28667422And whatever equates to the CDC in japan.
>>28667283You take out your PKE meter.There's a BIG spike at a pile of what look like old VHS tapes. It's a Blue/Red reading, so it's dangerous but not hostile. They're all dated and have names, a few have COPY written on it.From what you can tell, the brain trust that dwelled here had one person watch the tape, and then after six days, they'd make a copy of the tape. The next person would watch, and so on, until they'd go back and the guy who watched the earliest tape would watch the new one."So these morons were doing the ghost equivalent of sharing needles?" Star asks."Maybe, apparently they get euphoric effects from the hallucinations that the spirit invokes." Sato says."Which might be two spirits...or three." You say. You explain to the pair what you heard from the girl."Well..." Sato taps his nose. "A fractured spirit with an 'innocent' self is NOT an unheard of scenario. It's in the handbook. But...the Ghost of the Smallpox virus?""Really? We have this kind of job and THAT'S what you're questioning?" Star says."True." He shrugs. "Alright, so...let me check if there's anything on ghost diseases." He flips through the handbook."Okay, found some Crazy Journals." Star says, as you start to spray Slime over the tapes. "It's from one of the three girls here. They were REALLY into this.""Which the men made up just so they'd look mysterious, in order to score tail." You say."Well, the girls believed...""Wait...three?" Sato says. "Did you see them?""Yeah. One that grabbed us back in the alley. The other two were here and ran out to fight Akira." Star says. "And...yeah, they believed it and from this I'm thinking that one was either PKE sensitive or a PKE Manipulator.""What?" You ask."A proper term for 'psychic' that Central has us use." Sato says. > Ask about the Journal Contents> Ask about data on Ghost Diseases> Continue to search the place> Go back outside.> Other
>>28667519>Ask about data on Ghost DiseasesFirst, to see if we have an epidemic on our hands.>Ask about the Journal ContentsWhat they're planning on doing.>OtherCall the P-COC, and Peck, as the ranking member of the Commission here in Japan, that we have a para-biological weapons threat, and the police/local hospitals because, holy shit, there's a girl down there with fucking small pox and it looks to be in the infectious stage.
>>28667519All of them in this order:Crazy's JournalGhost Diseases (vaccines for everybody!)Continue searching buildingGo outside and wrangle us up some prisoners
>>28667593>girl down here with smallpox and it looks to be in the infections stage>small little bumps are appearing all over her faceJesus fuck, couldn't you people have latched onto something NORMAL? Like getting way too into furries or something?
>>28667519>as you start to spray Slime over the tapes.Wot?That's out of protocol, we're supposed to bag and tag these suckers for analyzing.At least save one so we can see safely what exactly is the video by sending the cassette reels through the spectronalizer.
>>28667658Shamefur oversight by Daisuke's part, but hey we're new and GB Tokyo probably hasn't gotten the hang of this yet.
>>28667658Pretty sure we're operating under scorched-earth rules at this point. Central can bitch at us later, this shit's too dangerous to leave even theoretically active.
>>28667818If you burn your enemies tracks, you'll never find out where he's headed.It's just not exactly a good idea to erase all the clues you know what I mean?We can always purge them later easily. But what's did is did.
>>28667904Well it's not as though these are the only copies we're likely to find, is it?
>>28667616"Start with the disease." You say as you bag one of the tapes for later examination. Since the rest are dangerous, they needed to be slimed. At the very least, your asses are now covered by legal. "Alright...there's a few case by case examples. But there's good news, it's transmission vector has to be from the Source itself." Sato says. "It can't jump from person to person without the entity's will present.""So, just being near an infected person, or being in this room won't infect us?" Star asks."No, no the ghost actively has to GIVE you the disease, and when we bust this one, all of it should disappear, since the PKE source will be severed." He nods. "But..." He holds up a hand. "That's not a reason not to panic, for example, if a ghost can spread a PKE Miasma fog over an area, everyone in that area WILL be infected. So it CAN be airborne."Also, anyone croaks to the disease...oh dear...it powers the Ghost spreading the disease. Dr. Stanz wrote about seeing a collection of trapped spirits. 'They were there, like an endless field of seaweed, all floating there, in the dark.' He can be very poetic.""Floating? Heh, next person who makes a King reference gets smacked." A pause. "No one? Really?"You and Sato shrug."Uncultured jackasses." Star says. "Alright, well the journals are a more basic story. Three girls, lives are in the shit, they come here because it's warm, weed and food are free, and these guys don't ask for rough sex." She shrugs. "As they get deeper into it, the PKE sensitive girl starts to get visions from the Entity.""Which one?" You ask. "The little girl, the nasty girl, or the Smallpox virus?""I think all three, she didn't realize they were different." Star says. "Well...they ARE the same one, but that's irrelevant."So the ghost is sick of just being spread in a circle among the same people. It wants to spread out, so the girls find some more people to lure into the group. (cont)
>>28667941Who knows, next time we might not be so lucky with this sort of thing.
>>28667989This works, but it's not enough." Star says. "They go further and further...and then they got some people that freaked out and ran, taking the DVD they were infected on with them."The journals end there, but I think we can guess what happened.""Those two were the ones who put that tape in the movie theater." You say. "You think that was them, or were they influenced by the Ghost?"Sato shrugs. "Does it matter? We've got a week to get the Entity in a box."You hear sirens and see flashing lights from outside."Up, looks like Sana's back-up has arrived." Sato says.> Go out and deal with the Cops/P-COC> See if there's anything else in here that could be helpful> Other
>>28668082>See if there's anything else in here that could be helpfulWe need to secure any PKE-active evidence before the police lock this place down.
>>28667989>"No, no the ghost actively has to GIVE you the disease, and when we bust this one, all of it should disappear, since the PKE source will be severed." He nods. "But..." He holds up a hand. "That's not a reason not to panic, for example, if a ghost can spread a PKE Miasma fog over an area, everyone in that area WILL be infected. So it CAN be airborne.>"Also, anyone croaks to the disease...oh dear...it powers the Ghost spreading the disease. Dr. Stanz wrote about seeing a collection of trapped spirits. 'They were there, like an endless field of seaweed, all floating there, in the dark.' He can be very poetic."Alright, so we'll have to inform the police about a "gasborne smallpox" bioterror threat. And that, we have recieved indication that the virus has been "engineered" to be non transmissible between infected individuals outside of the gas.
>>28668082Let's NOT let Daisuke be the one to deal with P-COC, yes? Specially since our possessed!Lady Una will probably be there.
>>28668152Whatever we miss the P-COC will probably collect up. It's likely they have their own paranormal crew of their own and pick this place clean and give it a good slime spraying. Then the cops can deal with the rest.
>>28668172Pretty sure we can just tell P-COC what's going on straight up and let them worry about translating it to the authourities. S'part of they're getting paid, no?
>>28668237So, I'm seeing votes towards the 'leave' option, correct?
>>28668414One definite vote to continue searching. The others are pretty unclear.
>>28668414>Do our own PKE meter investigation as last check for anything of import to us. Collect items of noteworthy in GB standard evidence bags if we have some>Have somebody else inform the P-COC of the threats we know so far>Video cassets and mirrors at risk of transdimentional conduits and occular inhabitation.>Smallpox ghost and how we have deemed it works>Potential cult scatterings>The upcoming doomsday if that hasn't been already established>The need for more funding or backup in whatever way they can
>>28668414Have Sato deal with P-COC while we keep searching with Star.
>>28668414Lets do one last checkup and hightail it out of here and let the pcoc do their thing.>>28668459Also these, inform them.
>>28668459You do a final scan of the area.> Roll 1d20
Rolled 13>>28668541SUDDENLY A SKELETON POPS OUT
Rolled 16>>28668541Eh, why not.
>>28668571Good news: it's offering candy!Bad news: The candy is old and rotted.
>>28668626Worse News: it's leftovers from last years Bon festival
>>28668594You get a weak PKE spike from something under this pile of crazy drawings. It's just a black circle over and over and over again...and underneath we get the source of the two blue reading.A rock.It's about as big as a baseball.Well, you've been in this job too long, and the Handbook says that rocks are ESPECIALLY important. Never underestimate a rock.You bag it."Okay, we can go." You say."I certainly hope so." A new voice says.A man about your age is standing at the doorway. He's dressed in a suit, and has a nice silver tie, small round glasses, and a look as it he's got a small forest of rods jammed up his ass."I am Rao Yasuo." He says, showing a badge. "Field Agent for P-COC. This area is safe for human presence? It has no lingering dangers of any source, physical, psychic, memetic, or other?""No." Star says."Very well. Please report downstairs for cleansing and debrie-""Uh, no we don't. Ghostbusters are Grandfathered past that certification." Sato says. "We're supposed to just clear the site and go."Yasuo takes out his own handbook and flips. He nods. "I see, very well. Please vacate the premises at once.""Gladly." You say."Hold." He says when you walk by him. He hands you a slip of paper. "That's your violation ticket for entering a known paranormal site without informing the neighbors.""The neighbors are meth addicts passed out in their own vomit." You say."They still have a right to know that people are poking around, possibly summoning up ancient beings of incomprehensible terror." Yasuo says. "Also, sir, I feel that the editorials about you were unfounded and hyperbole. You are an upstanding citizen, I wish you had picked a better organization when entering this field." You take the ticket and look for any sarcasm in his eyes. There's none. "Thank you." You say."Just ensure that you follow protocol next time." Yasuo says.People in Hazmat suits go up as you come down.(cont)
>>28668945>A rockA rock. A rock! Oh the pioneers used to ride these babies for miles!Hey, it was either that or Peanuts, and it's past Halloween.
>>28668945Is it a really big rock?
>>28668945>"Also, sir, I feel that the editorials about you were unfounded and hyperbole. You are an upstanding citizen, I wish you had picked a better organization when entering this field."This guy...this guy we can work with. We need to remember to be polite.
>>28669004Definitly, and I'm real sad we can't get in good footing with Peck too because of mrs bitchface being his Japanese entourage whenever he drops by the land of the rising sun.
>>28668945Huh. That could go well for us in the future.And while you'd think there would be an exception with the whole captured teammate thing, he DOES make a good point about informing the neighbors.
>>28668945Akria is waiting for you down at YOMI-1. He jerks his head over to a group of policemen filling out reports with other people in silver ties, Yasuo's men probably.You see the two male 'cultists' sitting on the sidewalk. The girl is being loaded into an ambulance. Her stretcher has a plastic quarantine 'bubble' around it."The stiff with the Silver Tie didn't even blink when I told him she was possibly infectious. Jumped right on it and had a guy call CDC." He shrugs. "Anyway, the two idiots are going away, if you want to get any more information out of them...do it quick.""Oh shit." Star says. "Where's the third one?""What?" Sato asks."The third girl...one died back in the alley, the other one's there...we're missing one." She says.> You have time to get ONE decent question out of the cultists before the police and P-COC take them away.> Ask the cultists about Sadako> Ask the cultists about the third girl> Other> Try to get anything out of the crazy girl> Just go home
>>28669042>Ask the cultists about the third girlAnd inform Yasuo that we have one unaccounted for cultist/terrorist who is capable of summoning a para-biological attack at any place where there are a number of reflective surfaces.
>>28669076>>28669078Yep.>>28669078>dat rollBoy am I glad this wasn't a roll action
Ask about girl no. 3
>>28669042Uh..... shit. Um....okay, one question, one, one, one.....>Ask the cultists abotu SadakoDude, she KILLS people! That's all we get. Nix this one.>Try to get anything out of the crazy girlHahahahahaha no.>Ask the cultists about the third girl.THIS. This right here. Name, habits, favorite places, friends, features when she's not dressed as a drowned pre-pubescent. Everything we need to track her down.
>>28669042Third girl, definitely. Biggest potential to bite us on the ass later.
>>28662484>"Prolapse." Sato shudders.Note to self, we have a new way of dealing with people who threaten the reject zone.
You run up to the cultists."The third girl, where is she?" You snap."What?""There was a girl in the alley, and a girl here. Where's the last one? Tell me or so help me I will show you all what REAL pain is! And THEN I'll give you to P-COC!" You snap."Kyrie was upset about the movie thing. She kept going on and on about how 'Her Children were Ignorant and Alone.' Look man, Kyrie...crazy in bed but she kinda scared us. She took the 'cult' thing WAY too far, using all the weed money on that new place.""What new place?""I dunno, some place in Nerima. Said she got the place cheap." He sniffs. "Said that the 'new flock should incubate in a better garden' or some weird shit.""It was Shinujku not Nerima.""No...no, both are wrong. It was Shibuya. Right, Nerima's where we got that sweet weed.""It was Shinjuku!""No, it was Shibuya...dude...are we going to jail?"You shudder. How close were you to getting to THIS level? You walk away from the idiots."She's going to try and find the people from the movie that've been infected and continue the cult." You say. "She's got a base in Shibuya of Shinjuku...don't know which."The other two men look at Star. "Hey, I don't know all of them. I can contact a few, see what I can get.""Alright," You say. "We should tell Yasuo this as well. Don't want to get fined." You wave the ticket.Akira takes it from you and grins. "Central has a wall COVERED in these things. Nice to know we've started ours."You inform Yasuo and he agrees that the areas need to be searched. He also says that he has no desire, whatsoever, to keep you in the loop, you're still an independent organization.You drive home. YOMI-1 needs to be cleaned, and you've got that tape and the rock to research."You know...it's funny." Sato says to you, as Akira drives and Star looks for the perfect 'Yes' song to play."What is?" You ask."Yasuo...that's the name of Oiwa's big brother. He tries to save her soul in some of the stories."(cont)
>>28669431"Does he succeed?" You ask."Depends on the story." Sato says. "I'd say it's a weird coincidence, since his boss is 'Lady' Une, the name of the woman who Oiwa was killed for. But in this job..." He sighs. "And not to mention that weird shit with that thing in the restaurant." He grins and looks at you. "This is much better than med school, right?"You just glare at him.END EPISODE SIX
>>28669541Great, so we're going to have TWO possessions on our hands when the time comes. That's fucking great.At least one will be on our side.
>>28669569History ain't always gonna repeat itself you know.Let's just hope our story ends with the exorcists not ending up dead in their beds.
>>28669569It could just be a coincedence. I mean, stranger things have happened.
>>28669588>ain't always gonna repeat itselfTrue, especially since things are going off the rails. But I say we take hold of the power of stories. Shape them, use them to our advantage. Hey, the ghosts do it.>>28669598You're adorable.
>>28669541NEXT EPISODE: ANTI-VIRAL VIDEOS"Well...we do have a third terrible option.""Alright. Let's hear it.""We break Rule One.""There was one thing that was unusual.""It's okay, take it easy...no one's rushing or shouting for answers.""It sang Italian Opera.""WHAT?!""So...Sadako's about to come at us.""Yup.""I have one question.""What?""Shoot to Thrill or Thunderstruck?"EPISODE 7: ANTI-VIRAL VIDEOSWednesday, December 11th, 3-5pm PST
>>28669616>Shape them, use them to our advantage. Hey, the ghosts do itOr we completely fuck it up with another story.Say, ain't one of us egyptologists? I wonder what would happen if we summoned anubis here during the great alignment.
>>28669647>SadakoSo are we going to learn whatever her backstory is, and is it even relevant?
>>28669648Since Anubis is actually a total bro despite what Hollywood tries to tell me, I think that might help.>>28669647>We break Rule OneI forget, what's Rule One again?>Shoot to Thrill or ThunderstruckThunderstruck. But only because Let There Be Rock isn't available.
>>28669647>"Shoot to Thrill or Thunderstruck?"If we could get her to play something made after 1989, I'd think Living Dead Girl would be the obvious answer.
>>28669648Actually, we could take advantage of the alignment and potentially call up Susano-oh. Also remember that Buddhist monks do have the sutras needed to make you invisible to ghosts.
>>28669647>"Shoot to Thrill or Thunderstruck?"I choose option C: The Touch.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZKpByV5764
>>28669710Depends which guide.I'm guessing it's not the "don't answer the gods question" rule, so it's probably the other one about certain crossed streams and nuclear obliteration of this planet.
>>28669730Funny thing is, I have already semi-planned when and where 'The Touch' will be played.You will be driving a 16-wheeler when you do it as well.
>>28669762Okay, my selection of Option C is withdrawn, in favor of using it at a superior time.But will we get Dare while driving a Lambo at insanely unsafe speeds?
>>28669762GhostMaster is Best GM
>>28669778>driving a LamboOur driving is officially not that good, and Lambos are often described as ACTIVELY WANTING TO KILL THEIR DRIVERS. If you can't handle a Lambo, you WILL kill yourself trying to drive one. And we can't handle it.
>>28669813Nothing like living on the edge. Too bad Drift fizzled off.
>>28670367Apparently, according to an individual closely placed to the QM but who shall remain nameless (you probably know who I mean, since I know a lot of readers, myself included, thought he WAS the QM) who shall remain nameless, the QM had real stuff come up.
>>28670397Man, fuck real stuffAlways getting in the way of muh /tg/ time.
>>28670397Hey, real stuff comes up and some things become secondary considerations at best. And I don't blame him for it, I just miss that quest. I mean, there was a record store staffed by Daft Punk!
>>28670413And we were just getting in good with our "soon to be Asian girlfriend" (that grammatical goof in archiving still makes me chuckle), too.Hopefully, it'll come back one day, and Sam Telis will ride again. Might even score some drawfags.>>28670445Technically it was just a guy in a Daft Punk helmet. I doubt Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter moved to not-California.But on that subject what IS IT with Quests and Daft Punk?
>>28670502It doesn't MATTER if it wasn't the actual titanium twosome, it was still cool.And the reason why Quests and Daft Punk go together like chocolate and peanut butter is that Daft Punk is Da Bes.The only way that anything could be Da Bes besides Daft Punk were if you somehow combined every single great band ever with Daft Punk.
>>28670502'80s music, too.Daft Punk and '80s music are like the official soundtrack for Questing.
>>28670543So, Daft Punk + Queen = the universe exploding from concentrated awesome?
>>28670677Or creating another one. Possibly resurrect Freddie.
