Today was a repeat of yesterday. Tomorrow will be a repeat of today. As you make your way home from class, you try to stifle a yawn. You missed both the train and the bus today...Despite the small upset in your life about a month ago, everything seems to have settled back down. Despite learning that you have been infected with the Renegade, a sort of virus that grants its hosts incredible powers, and being approached by a secret agency which wishes to cover up these events, you have managed to return to a feeling of normality and restart everyday life. Everything is almost exactly as it used to be."Oh my, Captain, you haven't been sleeping well have you?"
>>29263491Yes, everything is almost back to normal. Claire is still here. You glance over your shoulder to look at the girl walking beside you. A small lock of her auburn hair has been braided and pulled back into a tail on the side of her head, clear proof that the other girls in the class have been fussing over her again. Claire, the observing agent from that shadowy organization, the UGN, has been hard at work. From precisely 6:30AM to 10:30PM, Claire is always within earshot. She claims to be watching you from afar during the other hours of the day, but you cannot prove this either way. Like you, Claire hosts the Renegade, marking her as a human being with special powers: an Overed."Captain, are your bestial urges interfering with your sleep patterns? I am afraid I cannot indulge your needs if they are, but I can forward your condition to the Chief. I understand that these problems are common for young men, even those without the Renegade inside them."You can't believe she said that with a straight face. Normally, you'd like to just go home and sleep, but you have things you need to do today, whether you like it or not. Unused to having an agenda, you struggle to think about what you were supposed to do first...>Make your monthly report to the UGN Chief. You are under supervision after all.>Manaka Ayase, a classmate involved in *that* incident a month ago has given you a call. You don't think it would be wise to ignore her.>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.
>>29263513>Claire told you...Might as well learn how to not get killed horribly.
>>29263513>Manaka Ayase, a classmate involved in *that* incident a month ago has given you a call. You don't think it would be wise to ignore her.
>>29263513[X] Fill the shit outa that report, delay all non mundane activities for as long as possible.
>>29263513Talk to our classmate, she might bug us all day if we ignore her, and we already have one girl doing that
Yay!Here, have the previous thread!http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/29216651>>29263513>Make your monthly report to the UGN Chief. You are under supervision after all.Reports! Those sound appealing and normal.Unlike Claire and Ayase.Have we had any more trouble with Ayase's stalker with the shadow blade?..probably should mention that in the report too.
>>29263700We as long as is polite anyway.
>>29263491Here is the archive of the last thread, before I forget. In case any one wants a refresher http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/29216651/
>>29263513>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.Fucking fine, but can we see if we can get this done before dinner?
>>29263513>>Make your monthly report to the UGN Chief. You are under supervision after all.And all players: don't forget what the captain soul is
>>29263725Yeah that was kind of messed up we should get someone not-us to deal with it.
>>29263513>Make your monthly report to the UGN Chief. You are under supervision after all.Might as well. I rather not get harassed by them about it. At least till next month. And Clair is just a damn nuisance
>>29263796Hell, isn't shit like that what our monthly check in is for?
>>29263814I agree but I think she's latched on to us now so the best thing to do is find the right balance between ignoring and appeasing her. Management to reach mediocrity, mediocrity to reach bliss.
Remember to avoid that female classmate like the plague. She associates with the uncommon and will interacting with her will inevitably result in conflict with Mister Disintegrating Knives.
>>29263891Anyone else think it's depressing that she thinks we're her friend after we spent most of the time we knew her trying to ignore her?
>>29264040We are her friend, just form a safe distance.
>>29264040Yeah, that is depressing as hell. I actually do like her, mostly because she's the perfect foil to Captains attitude. It's funny.
>>29263513Yeah, that's right. You need to get this monthly report out of the way before you get in trouble. Claire files her own papers, or so you're told, but you still need to make an appearance at headquarters once a month. You don't know many details beyond that, but you're confident that whatever it is can't take too much time. After all, they must have better things to do with their time than hassle you, right?You tell Claire that you're heading in for your monthly appointment and have her take the lead. You walk several blocks toward the downtown area, with Claire avoiding any methods of public transportation. You don't come down here much, the heavy traffic and crammed together skyscrapers make you feel a little claustrophobic. Eventually, you reach your destination. It's an old style building, with heavy gothic overtones, all seemingly carved from a single piece of black stone. Huge metal doors bar your entrance, and there's no visible handles or buttons to press to open them. Claire approaches the door and motions for you to follow."Just one moment. Let me make my key." Claire looks around her, obviously checking to see if anyone is paying particular attention to her. She opens up her bookbag and takes out a slip of regular notebook paper. She taps the paper with her finger, and the paper begins to contort and twist, folding in on itself over and over again until it takes on the shape of a card. From what you can tell, it isn't just the shape that has changed--the paper now has a plastic sheen to it, and that's clearly a magnetic strip running down the side of it.Claire places her card up to a small white panel which flashes green and makes a small beep. The doors slide open and steps aside. Finished with her key, Claire drops it, and you see it dissolve into a black, metallic sand."After you, Captain.">Remain silent>Ask her about that "key"
>>29264195No questions just go report
>>29264180Dude it's fine I'm just getting really into character I trust DXR to keep throwing her at us.
>>29264195>Remain silentMust be a common occurrence around these types, and it explains how yesterday's knife came to be.
>>29264195>Ask her about that "key"Weren't we told the Renegade can propagate through minerals? Is it really safe for her to leave behind metallic dust when she uses her powers? Seems like it's an infection waiting to happen.
>>29264195Are we going to have to get one of those for days when you're not around? You know, the days it snows in Hell?
>>29264195"Aw crap knife-guy IS an overed."Then walk in without explaining further.
>>29264195>Ask her about the key"you know, that's the second time I've seen a metal object does integrate after use. This is getting too trippy."
>>2926427180% of people are already infected. It just doesn't do anything in most people.
>>29264333Let's not discuss that here.
>>29264383I still think it's irresponsible. Not to mention rude. Clean up after yourself, Clair! You don't see us leaving our flesh lying around everywhere after we use our Chimera powers. Which we haven't really used,actually, but that's beside the point.
>>29264195>black, metallic sand.Shit, just like the blade from Ayase's stalker.Yeah, definitely going in the report.
>>29264641You know that they're going to have us look into that.But yeah, her getting chopped up by a crazy dude is probably less mundane than us having to confront a crazy dude.
>>29264736We don't work for them, they *can't* have us look into that.We'd almost certainly end up getting involved, though.
>>29264195You decide it would be best not to ask her about this key. As you enter the building, you do mention that you think you might need your own eventually."There is no need," Claire says, the doors slamming shut behind her. She looks up at you with her usual dead expression, "I will always be here to let you in."Right. Don't think too hard on that. You turn your attention to the rest of the building. The style is just as ornate and archaic as the exterior. Pillars, exquisite carvings, and golden accents make the place feel like a castle, and the impossibly huge paintings and red carpets only add to the building's regal nature. While you see people in what you would consider normal clothing walking up and down the hallways, the majority of people you are aware of are dressed like what you can only guess are butlers."The Chief's tastes are something else, aren't they?"You feel a hand grab your shoulder and you practically jump out of your skin. You spin around to see a woman grinning. While you would consider her to be wearing normal, perhaps even stylish clothing, what your eyes are drawn to is the white lab coat. She must work here or something."Oh my, oh my. Jumpy are we?" The woman covers her mouth and giggles.You turn to Claire, but Claire is looking the other way...hey! Is she ignoring you?!"You must be Wild Card. I heard you were coming today," the woman gives you a thumbs-up and flashes a toothy smile, "I'm Shining Void. I'll be the one doing your monthly examination. Pleased to meet you!">What? You thought you were supposed to see the Chief>Shining Void?>Complain to Claire.
>>29264969>What? You thought you were supposed to see the ChiefSee if we can't just ignore her this reeks of someone ignoring the chain of command.
>>29264969>What? You thought you were supposed to see the Chief.Also, this guy in our school threatened us with a magic knife. Oh, and we don't think our codename is entirely accurate...
>>29264969Follow Claire and ignore void unless someone we know says other wise
>>29264969"Where did that name come from? I am anything but wild"
>>29264969>Complain to Claire."About this Wild Card business I don't think it's appropriate. Claire you wouldn't say I'm a shining beacon of unpredictability would you?"
>>29264969>Option 4: Point out that all of these codenames are obnoxious as fuck.I mean seriously, if these are the names they give themselves it's a wonder they haven't started thinking of themselves as gods and taken over every aspect of society.Wait... Fuck.
>>29265190>MC's face when"is there like... some shadowy council controlling everything? Wait no that just happens in crappy animes right? right?"
>>29265190Yeah. That needs to be said.
>>29264969Wait? Examination?!This was supposed to a report!Reports are NOT examinations.Besides, we have things to report.
>>29265190this really is one of those things that needs to be said
>>29264969...Actually, you have a couple of complaints about your 'codename'. Really? Wild Card? Not only is in inappropriate, but it just sounds incredibly obnoxious. "Oh, really? You don't like it? But you know..." Void puts a finger on her chin, "You were given your code name by special request."What's this? Why would anybody go out of their way to give you such a silly name. You are already suffering enough by being called the Captain of the Go-Home club. As you ponder this situation, you let your eyes roam over to Claire, who is still looking away from you. Actually, she seems to be purposefully avoiding your gaze."What's wrong, little Bullets," Void begins, "You were so proud of it before!"Bullets? What? Wait, didn't you hear something much more important just now...? You lean in and give Claire the stink eye. Eventually, she stops avoiding you and returns to her normal expression."The 'Wild' is because you are a Chimera, and have bestial powers. I thought it sounded cool, so..."Apparently, Claire is finished, because she lets that sentence hang there without any further explanation. After a few moments, Shining Void claps her hands and gets your attention back."Well, well, what's done is done. No changing it now!"Well, you suppose your question has been answered.>What? You thought you were supposed to see the Chief>Shining Void?>Ask more about this Examination
>>29265556>Ask more about this Examinationbut gripe a bit about code names first, a la >>29265190>>29265252
>>29265556>Ask more about this Examination"Ok... So examination. I thought this was a report or something?"
>>29265556>>Ask more about this ExaminationWe were told we had to come here every month to make a report. No one said anything about any sort of examination.
>>29265556>claire selected the nickname intentionally>probably had to wrangle to get it approved for us>watches us at all timesI'm not saying she's trying to husbandu us, but....
>>29265556>Ask more about this ExaminationNothing so far has hinted that these would be necessary.
>>29265532>>29265334>>29265252They have an assortment of secret bases.They're keeping renegade a complete secret from the world.They can mind-control people and erase memories.They've even got a corps of superpowered, fanatically loyal, socially maladjusted teenagers.All in all, this screams 'conspiracy'.
>>29265648>Constantly making jokes that reveal that she at least fantasizes about getting into some /d/-tier beast plowing
>>29265556ask about the exam
>>29265682Or robots. We have not ruled out robot at this point.
>>29265690It's a funny feeling being the waifu, sort of sickly sweet.
>>29265682or "Government Agency", possibly "Runaway Government Agency">>29265690>>29265648we should set up a camera in our room when we sleep. make sure she isn't trying to steal our underwear or something
>counting and writing
>>29265842We'll this is going to end in the weirdest relationship ever.
>>29265842'Conspiracy' and 'Government Agency' aren't mutually exclusive, you know.I mean, the game is named 'Double Cross' and features lovecraftian superpowers, a reality-fucking 'virus' and SAN loss. Being paranoid is probably a good idea.
>>29265936That sounds like the MC should start investing heavily into paranoia. We should probably hit up a bookstore soon. Pick up some randomg RPGs, a collection of lovecraft's tales, a guide to australian wildlife, maybe a knife too?
>>29265980>a guide to australian wildlifeSAN checks incoming...
>>29266104Why whatever do you mean?Am i kawaii sempai?
>>29265980We cut open a bus why would we need a knife?
>>29265556Putting all that aside, this is the first you've heard about any sort of examination. You thought you were here to submit a report. You expected paperwork, lots of rubber stamps, and maybe an interview or two. Not to get ambushed by some odd lady in a lab coat. "Welllll, most of the reporting is being done by Speeding Bullets over here," she points to Claire. That must be her codename. Sounds just as childish as the rest of them, you can only assume that she got to pick hers too."What you're mostly here for is my evaluation, you see. I'm here to make sure you aren't degenerating into a rampaging, wild Gjaum. So we're going to do a few tests, seeing how well the virus is settling in, take blood and marrow samples, check your regeneration rate, do a psychological evaluation, take your measurements, figure out exactly how much it has encroached upon your sanity. Little, simple tests like that."Void clasps her hands together and gives you a beaming smile. Ugh, is everyone here unhinged? You would think that the Chief is sane, but the decorations on this building suggest otherwise. Shining Void approaches you and takes you by the arm. While she is still smiling, you feel something sinister behind her gaze. You wonder how much this is going to hurt..."Oh, it'll be just fine. Just fine! My body is a natural pharmacy," She leans in mere centimeters away from your face, "It won't hurt one bit. Unless I want it to."With that, you find the strength in your legs fading, and Void begins to drag you away. You look up to see Claire waving to you."Bye-bye."
>>29266244do YOU remember how to access our powers on demand when not faced with imminent death?>>29266274>You look up to see Claire waving to you.>"Bye-bye."Cheeck cunt
>>29266274>My body is a natural pharmacyGiggty?
>>29266274Ah fuck you Claire. This whole thing going to cut into our home time
>>29266274You're not quite sure what happened after that. You have hazy recollections of being sliced into, asked incredibly intimate questions, and doing what you think is a zumba routine, but beyond those generalities, the entire experience is a blur. When you finally become aware of your surroundings again, you're sitting in a large, round office. Your first thought is that everything is far too bright. Blinding white light reflects off the white marble walls and floor. Every single fixture in this room is painted a stunning, pure white. The one source of color in the room is the large black desk in front of you, and the blood red tie of the Chief sitting behind it."Good afternoon, Wild Card. I see you're finally back with us."The Chief is once again looking through what you can only guess is your folder. She reclines in her large, plush chair and crosses her legs. Her black stockings contrast against the shining room, and draw your attention to her legs. Oddly small. You had the impression she was taller, but maybe that's just her charisma..."So, I'm here to do the interview portion of your report. Your vitals are within the norms, and Shining Void did not report any issues with your mental state--at least as far as the Renegade is concerned."The Chief sets the folders down and looks at you. Once more, her shocking green eyes burrow themselves into your brain."So, have you anything to say?">Talk about Yeager>Complain about Claire>Gawk
>>29266549>GawkAdolescent males have no shame.
>>29266549"do you get paid by the lumen?"
>>29266549>Ask if the organization is full of unusual people, and complain about ClaireOn another note the "You have hazy recollections..." line has me worried. These are people who can freely alter memories, so who knows what they are up to in there.
>>29266549>Talk about Yeager"Yeah, some guy tried to stab me with magic disappearing knives a week or so back. I was on the toilet at the time, so no cleanup but I'm pretty sure knives dont turn to dust when touched"
>>29266549>Talk about YeagerSome crazy pulled knives that turn to dust on me.
>>29266549>Talk about Yeager
>>29266549>Talk about YeagerThere was that dude at our school, transfer student, thought he was one of yours at first. He followed me into the bathroom and basically threatened to cut off our johnson if we kept interacting with another girl in our class. Now, normally this would be just some psycho schoolyard bullshit except the knife he threatened us with dissolved the same way Claire's key did.So, yeah, maybe you want to go blackbag this guy or whatever it is you guys do.
>>29266549>Talk about Yeager>Complain about Claire
>>29266596>>29266604But gawk politely.
>>29266712>>29266549Maybe instead of complaining, per se, about Claire, ask why she's so weird. She obviously didn't have a normal childhood.
>>29266781probably because this virus makes you nuts.
>>29266549...does the Renegade make people crazy?...because I think you, and hopefully I, might be the sanest people in this building.And that other Renegade guy at school seems a bit unhinged too.
>>29266781I wager she was found young and the organization has had hold of her for a good while. Probably did some mental work on her to. Honestly part of why I say we never actually join the organization ever
>>29266867>And that other Renegade guy at school seems a bit unhinged too.I love this, just putting it in as an afterthought is great.
>>29266823"Harold Yeager? Yes, I know about him." She reaches underneath her desk and pulls out another file."Harold Yeager: Born 199X to Tom and Barbara Yeager. No noteworthy accomplishments academically or socially. Awakened as an Overed at a young age and was subsequently discovered. Completed his surveillance several years ago with no incidents and is no longer considered an Illegal Overed. He was granted permission from his former Branch Chief to transfer to my jurisdiction. Of course, I accepted."She closes the file and looks at you."I don't believe you are deceiving me, but I do not consider this a cause for concern. Even Overeds have their teenage troubles."You sigh and lean back in your chair. Well, that doesn't make you feel any better about it. You see the Chief frowning, looking over her paperwork."Still, Speeding Bullets reports that he has a significant interest in Miss Ayase, your classmate from the accident. If he threatened you, it is cause for us to have a discussion with him."The Chief then stamps your files and shoves them in a drawer. "That concludes our meeting. Thank you for reporting in, and I hope our future 95 visits all go this smoothly." Before you know it, you are shoved out of the building and onto the street with very little ceremony. You swear the butlers seemed a little disgusted that they had to touch you. Claire is waiting outside, carrying your bag for you."Welcome back, Captain. I have your things ready for you." She holds out your bag and waits.That's one thing out of the way...>Manaka Ayase, a classmate involved in *that* incident a month ago has given you a call. You don't think it would be wise to ignore her.>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.
>>29267141>compulsory educationLet's learn this before we take on Ayase's stalker.
>>29267141>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.If it's compulsory, might as well get it out of the way.
>>29267141>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.Lets get this over with. Whether she thinks this is a "cause for concern" or not I don't feel safe with that Yeager bastard spooking around.
>>29267141>>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities."So... you came up with my code name huh?do you do that for everyone or am I special?"
>>29267141>Manaka Ayase, a classmate involved in *that* incident a month ago has given you a call. You don't think it would be wise to ignore her.We wait to long she going to be coming to us, which will only piss that guy more. All we need is a quick chat and then leave back home
>>29267141>compulsory educationAnything to avoid encouraging the other girl.
>>29267246We can call her on the way. Let's call her back on the way to wherever Claire's little lesson will be taking place.
>>29267141>>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.I wanna do that. Fuck Ayase. Psychonut can have her
>>29267141>Claire has told you that you must begin your compulsory education on your condition. She insisted on instructing you on your abilities.Because if knifenut runs into any complications with his romantic obsession, he's probably going to blame us and try to gut us like a fish.
>>29267344I'd be wary about that if I were you, that guy doesn't seem the type that would take kindly to rejection. Dead classmates, even if they are annoying, is not mediocre.
I wonder whether the Ayase chick is also a monster.
so if our ability is becoming a giant fuck off monster that steals all of natures best tricks for itself, does that mean our combat theme is RULES OF NATURE
>>29267141"Excellent. I have been waiting for this with the utmost anticipation, Captain." Claire gives you your bag and leads you away from the building. You're not happy with all the walking you've been doing today when the public transportation system is there for everyone to use, but Claire seems to insist on taking the long way around for all of this. She begins to lead you down a series of progressively shady back-alleys, with each gaining a new layer of grime, a stronger scent of alcohol and garbage, and roughly double the amount of homeless strung out addicts as there were before.Eventually, Claire stops along one alley, pacing around with arms crossed for a few minutes before finally seeming satisfied with her selection. She sets her bag down and walks a few feet away from you, standing at the intersection of this alley and another."Let us begin," She gives an obviously faked cough to clear her throat and starts to speak, "As you know, the Renegade virus acts to protect its host in times of great danger. This is why many Overed awaken during incredible crises, like your bus accident last month. This is beyond the control of any organization. None have created a reliable method of creating Overed. However, once the virus is active within its host, it begins to move according to the desires of that host. Understanding how to convey your desires to the Renegade within you is the basis of controlling your powers."Well, that's fascinating and all, but you were never much one for inner calm and discipline. All this sounds like something far beyond your level."Yes, I thought as much as well. Often times, it takes an external stimulus before a recently awakened Overed learns how to urge their powers. In order to advance your power and understanding, I shall provide stimulation."
>>29267949Claire reaches down into her bag and pulls out an notebook. Once more, you see the paper twist in her hand, taking on a more and more complex form until finally...Hey! That's a gun! "Yes, and this is the inspiration for my codename. None among the Morpheus Syndrome can create such a large caliber pistol as quickly and accurately as I," she points the pistol at you. Wait...wait! Hold on!Before you can object, someone rushes past you and grabs Claire, yanking the pistol from her hand and pointing it at her head. "Hush, girl! You got money! You and that kid over there! I can hear it, hear it in your pockets!""Nooo. Help me, Captain. Pleaase," Claire's face remains utterly expressionless. Her acting is completely awful. It's clear she's not actually afraid of this man...but he is pointing a gun at her head."Shut up! You're gonna give me everything you got! Clothes too, those sell good! Yeah...""Save me, Captain. You're my only hope."...So unconvincing. Still, maybe you should do something?>Help>Don't Help
>>29267972>>Help"Dude, seriously, save yourself and save her the trouble. Do you see how NOT afraid she is?"
>>29267972>Don't HelpRun off. This is getting dangerously exciting.
>>29267972>HelpWhile yelling that this is a stupid demonstration of her abilities and that we are coming to her rescue on the principle of taking this joke too far on purpose so that she will never pull this stunt again.
>>29267972>"Help"release those pheremones that knock people unconscious
>>29267972Point out that her acting is terrible and that she needs to be far more distressed to get us in the mood.Double meaning intentional.
>>29267972>Don't HelpAre these niggas serious?
>>29267972>>29268092"Look, if you don't even look like you're in the mood I am not going to suddenly turn into a raging monster.Wait.... shit, not like THAT, god damn you're corrupting me"
>>29267972>HelpStart stripping so the madman doesn't shoot poor Clare. Take calmingly to the guy with the gun telling him you're complying and not to hurt her.I want to see how Clare reacts.
>>29267972>helpEh, We fucking bored.
>>29267972>>Don't HelpNah not feeling it
>>29267972>Save him from himself.This dude obviously has no idea what sort of shitstorm he just waled into.
>>29268227>implying this dude isn't an illusion made by Claire
>>29267972>Morpheus SyndromCan we get her to explain all those later? Please?
>>29268281Pretty obvious: they can take stuff and turn it into other stuff. That Yeager guys knife was probably paper or something as well.
>>29268473I meant ALL the syndromes. Like, we've heard Chimera and Morpheus so far. There's a dozen or so more.
>>29267972You're not really feeling it but...you guess you should put at least a token effort in. You're actually kind of embarrassed to be taking part in an escapade like this, but you're not sure how real that gun is. You call out to the man and step forward putting your hands up."Don't you come any closer! I'll kill both of ya!""Don't worry about me, Captain," More bad acting, "Those halcyon days we spent together were more than a girl like myself could ask for."Wait, what? Exactly what kind of roleplay is going on here? How much backstory are you unaware of? Did you change genres? Is this rehearsed? Utterly mortified by this entire situation, you reflexively step forward to shut her up and end up flying forward faster than you can believe. Shocked and a little afraid, you extend one hand to slow yourself down, and feel an itchiness spread across your flesh.A hard, black shell suddenly bursts forth from underneath your skin, growing over your limbs. Your sinew thickens, and your fingers elongate into sharp claws. In that brief moment where you are utterly in awe of yourself, you forget that you are speeding forward with a deadly weapon, and allow your claw to smash straight through the assailant's head. Well, smash is the wrong word. There's utterly no resistance. You fly straight through him, colliding into Claire and tumbling to the ground. Holy crap, did you just kill someone!? Immediately, you look over to check on the homeless man, but he's already gone. What...? But how...?You hear Claire click her tongue. "How disappointing. No fur."You look back to her, lying on the ground underneath you, still holding the pistol as if it was never taken from her.>What happened to that man?>No fur?
>>29268610>Screw this, I'm going home.
>>29268610>No furClaire confirmed furry. Commence elimination.
>>29268610>No fur?"oh god you're in to THAT sort of stuff?"while scooting back as fast as possible.
>>29268610If you can make illusions that act that well, why can't you?
>>29268610>What happened to that man?"and if I didn't know better I'd say you wanted to end up in this situation"
>>29268610"...meh, time to head home then"
>>29268610Both questions, in rapid succession, followed by angry questions about weak acting and just what the heck was the scenario she was going for.Pause.Then note her special effects seem to be worlds better than here acting.
>>29268610>No fur?"I didn't take you for that type."
>>29268610>No fur?Well, you did name we wild card. Who knows how the hell I'll transform...
>>29268610Stay away from me Furry. No one wants your kind.
>>29268610>A hard, black shell suddenly bursts forth from underneath your skin, growing over your limbs. Your sinew thickens, and your fingers elongate into sharp claws.Wait, did we just turn into a xenomorph
>>29268610>No fur?So they can even make people with that black. Interesting.
>>29268610>mfw we activated our powers not because of mortal danger but because we panicked over Claire's terrible acting.
>>29268610>No fur?"Oh no. Monster-pattern baldness. How terrible." in the most monotone deadpan we can muster.
>>29268738Not necessarily. Remember, she has three powers. And we didn't see any black dust when he disappeared.
>>29268733From that description? At least partially.We'll see about the double moth thingy later
>>29268740We were so disgusted with it that it simply had to end. It's the dream of everyone who's ever been forced to sit through a bad movie in the theater to just rend the screen apart.
>>29268610"If that was an illusion, I feel I should inform you that i panicked over not being able to don my robe and wizard hat before we started"
>>29268733Yes. Yes we did.
>>29268733I'm ok with this.She did say that, as a pureblood strain, our Chimera powers can reach higher than others.
I want to figure out if we can regen.Ask Claire to stab us.
>>29268886Anyone else want to see if we can turn intro a full sized Godzilla?
>>29268854>>29268886We'll be right terrifying when somebody INEVITABLY drags us into this conspiracy bullshit.Wait, is the xenomorphs mouth even capable of snappy one liners, or are we going to have to resort to just hissing sarcastically?
>>29268886Well you don't reach much higher than that when it comes to bestial predators.
>>29268941was that a challenge?
>>29268925Terrible idea, and not mundane.We should have asked for a copy of our file to see what scary lab-coat learned about that, since she specifically mentioned testing it.
>>29268854MC needs to buy a copy of Aliens VS Predator 2 stat so we can practice
>>29268610No fur...? "It's nothing. My instructor was a Chimera and she had the most luxurious fur so...It's nothing. You're just fine as you are. Rather, that was a splendid display. The power of a man's romance is not to be underestimated."Still confused, you try to put that little comment of hers out of mind and get up off of Claire. You look at your hands, or what used to be your hands. They still have five fingers, and they're still in the same basic shape but...this black chitin extends from the tips of your fingers all the way back to your elbow. The shell is incredibly hard, but you haven't lost a bit of flexibility. Of course, it would be difficult holding anything like this..."This is just a small fraction of your power as a Chimera, the Therianthrope transformation. Each is unique to the user, and it appears yours is a terrible black beast. With practice, you can transform your entire body into a living weapon, a divine beast of destruction. Men shall tremble at your footfalls, women shall grovel for mercy, your foes shall--"Yes, yes that's very nice. You ask her if there's anything worthwhile in that speech of hers. She immediately stops, the hints of enthusiasm in her voice draining away."Other powers, such as your healing factor and your enhanced senses, will come to you unbidden." That's it? You thought there would be more to it."Well, I'm not a chimera so..."Right, right...You don't know what you expected. You decide to ask her about that man who attacked her. What was he?"An illusion, provided by my Angel Halo Syndrome. Mastery over light and darkness. I cannot produce sounds, so I had one of the staff prepare this recording before hand." She pulls the trigger on her pistol, and you hear her assailant's speech begin again."A good trick, is it not? I am quite proud of it.">...Well, you were fooled. Go ahead and praise her.>Smack her.
>>29269134>...riiight, I'm going home now.
>>29269134>...Well, you were fooled.But we never thought you were in any danger. Seriously, take an acting class or something.
>>29269183Seconded. We know the important bits now.
>>29269134White Lie VS be a dick?"The scenario was a bit sudden, and your own reaction rather gave it away a bit. other than that, it was pretty good I guess.
>>29269134We weren't fooled. We knew it was fake from the start.I thought it was some kind of fetish but now we know your a furry.
>>29269227>>29269207these, constructive critisiscm>>29269261I'm not sure it's being a furry from the description of the ability. it sounds more like she wanted to touch our fluffy tail
>>29269261>we know your a furryShe just wanted to touch fluffy tail
>>29269134"So will I be able to change it up at all, or am I stuck with xenomorph mode?"
>>29269207This. It was nothing to praise about
>>29269134>...Well, you were fooled"...But I already KNOW you can perform weird mindfuck stuff, so a hobo wasn't really all that threatening. Should have gone with... Giant Assassin Spiders, or Cazadores or something instead"
I would like to add that her whole spiel about the power shows that she's been indoctrinated to believe Overed to be superior.
>>29269464I think it might just be that she imprinted on her teacher somewhat. The "aw, no fur?" comment, and all. She hasn't said things like that about her own abilities, so I think she is just REALLY into the Chimera syndrome
>>29269596Your right, that might just be why she seems so weird about us. We need to ask about this teacher sometime.
>>29269134You reach forward, letting your gnarled claw return to a normal human hand, then flick Claire's forehead, causing her to give a small yelp. You tell her she seriously needs to work on her acting if she's ever going to awaken some 'man's romance' within you. Claire rubs her forehead while collecting her things."I understand. I will need to provide a much higher level of stimulation to satisfy you. I would expect no less from the Wild Card."That's not exactly what you meant, but you decide to leave it at that for today. >>29269348You do have one last question...These black claws. You're not sure how much you like being a chitinous black monster. You begin to wonder if there's any way you can affect some change on your shape, to perhaps something a bit less sickening. "Ah, so you understand the need to contrast the wild, commanding power of the Chimera with soft, warm fur, yes? I understand. I am of the same persuasion. I shall contact my instructor, Lunatic High. She will be more than willing to assist you in discovering the more...fluffy aspects of your Chimera form, and more powers besides."No, wait, you didn't mean that you wanted to be--"Don't worry. I will make sure that she understands. I look forward to your blossoming."You place a hand to your head, nursing a headache you didn't know you had. What kind of childhood did this girl have? You swallow the mountain of questions and doubts and adjust your shirt. That last transformation seems to have shredded the lower half of your sleeves...you might have to change your wardrobe if this keeps up.You sigh and follow Claire out of the alley. You still have to meet Ayase today. God only knows what she wants.TO BE CONTINUED.
>>29269780>.you might have to change your wardrobe if this keeps up.Sweater vests? Sweater vests.Also, OP any chance of getting anything approaching a vague description of what we, claire, ayase, etc actually Look like?
>>29269780We can never grow fur, there's no telling what that girl might do.
We had a good turnout this time, I'm surprised. If you have any comments or questions, I'll answer them while I get the archive ready. I have a twitter up in the quest runner directory but will link it here if needed.
>>29269780>I shall contact my instructor, Lunatic HighIt's confirmed. they use the metal gear name generator for code names
>>29269780Huh. Short session, but alright.
>>29269840There's a lot of things we can't grow with our powers around her. For example, no wings unless they're horrible chitinous insect wings. Maybe not even that, we don't want her thinking we're ashamed of our wings. We don't need her trying to wingfic us.
>>29269882I meant to run about a half hour to an hour earlier, but I needed to get some stuff out of the way for tomorrow. I have to be up in about 6 and a half hours tomorrow.
>>29269824I would like to do that, but usually there just doesn't seem to be a good place for a lengthy description. I would love to commission art, however.For now, just imagine them as something that makes sense to you.
>>29269979easiest place would just be a pastebin with character description. stick it in the OP
>>29269888I'd suggest going as Xenomorph as possible but I shutter to think of her reaction to that much phallic imagery. She already has weird ideas.

>>29270083Include dice rolls and maybe let us choose our powers?
>>29270138We'll see what I can do. I don't want to bog this down in optimizing discussion or number crunching.
>>29270138Meh, the longer we go without dice the happier I am./tg/ dice are too swingy.
>>29270200I'm happy the way things have been going, personally. Keep up the fine work.
>>29269872Did you tweak Claire at all when you saw what sort of direction /tg/ was taking Captain? Because she's basically the perfect sidekick for the what he is.
>>29270278Alright then. Thanks for participating, and I'll see you around next time. Hopefully it will be a longer session. I really need to work on that.
>>29270435I had an idea for Claire before the thread got underway, and the way you guys play Captain just highlights her traits. Good on you. There were several "sidekicks" designed, actually, but Claire is the one I decided to end up using.
I told you about that Claire, motherfuckers. I warned you, bros.
>>29263491Whoa! That's the symbol of the household I'm part of in the SCA
