>What is this?he King of Fighters Quest is a developing Choose Your Own Adventure-style quest in which you take on the role of Katja Hartkern, an Austrailian practioner of Kyokugen Karate and guide her towards joining a team for the looming King of Fighter's tournament (Name TBA).Decisions are made by voting, with the first option to earn up to three or more winning; Combat choices are made via Rolls, with the highest roll or average out of the first three submissions winning.

>>29325136>TL;DR Recap:Ye Gods, where to start... Well, after getting your clock cleaned by Mr. Karate, the always honorable South Town Police Department decided to use you as a training dummy for their collapseable riot battons Insert Rodney King Joke Here, though the quick-thinking Kim Kaphwan talked them down before they did TOO much damage to you, although you still ended up hospitalized for around three days (Only waking up near the end of the second day).From there, you studied the teachings of a scroll that may or may not have been translated via Babelfish, went on a rather surreal dream experience which had everything to lifting weights and chatting with Pro Wrestler "Big Bear" to LITTERALLY "Riding the Lightning" (The efffects of which having yet to manifest themselves). If that weren't enough, when you awoke you thwarted an assasination attempt on your life by Eiji Kisaragi, though it seems that this particular incident stems from a conspiracy racket private detective "Blue Mary" Ryan (The owner of the Motorcyle you had "Borrowed" previously) clued you in on rather than any hatred his clan holds against the Kyokugen Dojo...After getting a clean bill of health, you were discharged from the hospital and started to walk back to your ratty appartment (Since that's what Kyokugen-Ryuu Fighter's Do!). However, the pangs of hunger hit you and you found yourself at the Pao Pao Cafe 2, checking out a decent fight between Duck King and an unknown "Pro-Wrestling Schoolgirl", when you realize that a Male Nurse back at the hospital stole your wallet... Though you only discovered this, of course, AFTER you already order some much-needed food and drink...
>>29325175>You are now playing the role of Katja HartkernYou glumly sit at the bar, your mind lost in thought over what the Manager/Bartender Bobby Wilson told you after finding out that you couldn't pay for your meal (And after you had slapped him in the face for seemingly trying to hit on you): "I was going to ask you to show up later tonight and see how good of a fighter you are, but forget it; You can help me clean up for a couple of hours before the dinner rush hits and my main waiters and waitresses show up."As his words ring through your mind, you find your food sitting in front of you and the Overweight Schoolgirl from the fight you watched earlier up on the barstool next to you, ordering a Soda...>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29325367> ASo what got a gal like you into fights like that?
>>29325367>>29325587Not much else we can do at this point.
>>29325587>>29325776"Hey. I saw ya' fight back there" You say, "You did pretty good.""Th...Thank you" she says as you notice that she seems to be blushing as you take another sip from your glass of beer."So... what got a gal like you into fights like that?" You ask as you take a hearty bite from your burger."Well... My mom was a Wrestler, an Olympian at one time, and I wanted to follow in her footsteps. But..." She pauses, then seemingly looks down at her stomach. "I just couldn't lose enough weight to actually compete against anyone back home. I tried everything for almost my entire time in Highschool; Did freeweights, swam miles every week, jogged, cycled, you name it... But no matter what I did, I was always felt like I'm stuck in this shell." She says, a hint of sorrow in her voice.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29326099>AWell hey, you were pretty cool in that match! I'm sure you'll improve even further as long as you put in the effort.
>>29326248"Well hey, you were pretty cool in that match! I'm sure you'll improve even further as long as you put in the effort" You tell her, trying to get her confidence up.She looks up at you and nods. "I know..." She sighs as she takes a sip of her soda. "But my mom, even though she loves me to tears, thinks I'm a royal fuck-up and only the heavens know where my dad is...""And you need to stop drowning in your sorrows everytime someone talks to you Tsuya!" You hear a voice say as you and The Schoolgirl turn to to see a Tall, Rather Muscular Woman with Long Red Hair walking towards the two of you, holding a pair of unopened Beer Bottles."Oi, I didn't order tha-" You ask before getting cut-off by the red-head as she sits down next to "Tsuya", handing you the bottle (Of Heiniken, you note)."I know. You're that chick from Terry's, right? The one that Arm-Wrestled me on New Year's?" She asks.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29326099>A. Say Something"Well you certainly impressed me."
Rolled 16>>29326547> BJust chug the beer for now, see where this new chick's going with things.
>>29326547"Gonna be honest, I don't remember much from New Year's."
>>29326560>>29326601>>29326654You take a look at the bottle, shrug and pop the top open with a special bottle opener on your keyring and take a good chug. Heiniken was never a favorite of yours, so you try not to make a sour face at this womans gesture of gratitude before saying "Yeah, but you'll 'ave to clue me in a little; Gonna be honest, I don't remember much from New Year's."""Thought so!" She cheerfully says as she opens up her bottle, taking a long swig before slamming it down on the bar. "Ah, dude! You missed out; We danced, arm-wrestled a little; You tried to drink me under the table..." She sultrily adds as she tries to reach her arm around "Tsuya's" shoulder to grab yours."Which is where I found you when we had to leave." "Tsuya" adds, with some hostility in her voice."Yeah yeah, but you were a lot of fun to hang out with..." She pauses as she starts to snap her fingers, trying to remember your name.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29327163Also, FUCKING CAPTCHA!
>>29327163> AIt's Katja. Guess I had as much fun on New years as I'd planned to then!>>29327188Condolences.
>>29327291This seems like a good response, maybe ask how they know each-other.
>>29327163>A. Say Something"Katja. Katja Hartkern. Before you ask about the accent, I'm a native-born Australian Aborigine. Well, at least half of me is."You?"
>>29327163A. Katjaa mate. You two know each other?
>>29327291>>29327505"It's Katja" You tell her as you clear off of your barstool and walk over to her."Fiona Graves" The Redhead replies as she gives you a pretty big hug before playfully slapping you across your. "And this is Tsuyako" She adds, pointing to the large Sakura Kasugano-Look-a-like."Horikawa Tsuyako. Nice to meet you" she replies, shaking your hand as Bobby Wilson walks back over with the bill for your order,as well as Fiona & Tsuyako's tabs."You girls enjoying your drinks?" He asks, giving you a slightly "Warmer" look than before.>A. Say Something>B. Do SomethingSorry about the delay Anons; I'm still a little tired from getting up at 5 AM This morning.
>>29327999>>29328021Ninja'd, I guess.
>>29328041B. Check the bill - even if we're only enlisted for tonight, it might be worth offering more to try and get in his okay books.
>>29328041>A. Say Something"As good as any." Apologize profusely to Bob; it's seriously been a rough couple days.>>29328078I'll ninja your face.
>>29328041> ASure, keep them coming!
>>29328041So Fiona is basically Katja except lighter and with a full head of red hair as opposed to Katja's butch buzzcut?Alternately, a slightly-upsized Vanessa with longer hair?
>>29328154Nothing against you Anon; I just wanted to make fun of how I posted an update IMMEDIATELY after you had voted, I guess...>>29328153>>29328343"As good as any" you wearily add, then finish of your glass before starting to pick at your Salad. "Look, I'm sorry I snapped at ya'; It's been rough for me the last few days.""No worries." He says, before adding "You want another round?"Before you joke that he'd only say that to get us to stick around longer, Fiona cuts in and says "Shit, I'll pay for it!" while holding out her wallet and getting out her Credit Card."Fio-Chan! You can't keep spending your money like water" Tsuyako says as her hands get swatted away from Fiona's."Hey, it's all good Sue; We get paid Tomorrow Night, right?" Fiona tells her as you now face a possible moral conundrum...>A. Let Fiona pay for your drinks on her dime>B. Take up Bobby's offer and work with him in the Pao Pao Cafe 2 for a night>C. Something Else>>29328359Somewhat. In my mind, she looks like Powergirl fused with Red Sonja... A living, breathing comic book heroine that's based on a particular favorite female wrestler of mine.
>>29328739>CTell Fiona you owe a fair few drinks and can't let her pay for all of then.
>>29328739>B. Take up Bobby's offer and work with him in the Pao Pao Cafe 2 for a nightWhat good is owing a debt if you can't already earn it for yourself? Katja's an honest worker most of the time.
>>29328739>SpoilerA fine image to have, especially the living comic book character bit. And I'm guessing the inspiration is Lita?
>>29328739C. Both, then offer both Fiora and Tsuyako drinks when you get your wallet back.
>>29328739>>B. Take up Bobby's offer and work with him in the Pao Pao Cafe 2 for a nightNo mooching off our new old buddy.
>>29328822>>29328869>>29328909>>29329022"That's awful nice of ya' Fiora, but I owe Bob 'ere a night's worth of work for the tab I've got; I can't let a friend spend her last dollar out in some bar" You tell her, imparting a little bit of wisdom your dad gave you before you went off to colledge."Oh, OK" Fiona pouts as she pays for her and Tsuyako's drinks before "Shoo-ing" Bobby away."I'll tell ya' what though; When I get my wallet back from the Wanker that stole it from me, I'll buy you two a round" You say as you down the last of the Heiniken she gave you, wiping your mouth off with your wrist."Pardon me asking, but what's with your accent?" Tsuyako asks, genuinely curious."I'm a native-born Australian Aborigine. Well, at least half of me is... You?" You ask, noticing that she's pretty tan for an Asian Woman..."Oh, I'm from Okinawa." She says, again looking somewhat homesick as she finishes up her soda. "And I've been speaking fluent english since I was 8 Years old"."Good on'ya" you reply as you look to fiona, who polishes off her 'brew. "I'm just a Valkyrie from Vegas with Jotunn Blood and Brunhilde Genes" she cracks, though a part of you isn't sure whether she's joking or not...>A. Spend some more time with the girls>B. Head back to your place (But not before asking Bobby what time our shift starts)>C. Time-skip to later that night (When our shift starts)>D. Something else>>29328904April Hunter, actually... Google her when you can, but a lot of photos are NSFW.
>>29329297>ALet's just chat amiably and try to forget about the whole tab.
>>29329297>>B. Head back to your place (But not before asking Bobby what time our shift starts)Get that shower. I suspect we need it.
>>29329394>>29329413VOTE. The power of Waifus compell you to!
>>29329297>B. Head back to your place (But not before asking Bobby what time our shift starts)We need a shower.
>>29329697So an Aborigine, an Okinawan, and a Viking walk into a bar...>A. Spend some more time with the girlsIf they ask about the smell, say we just got out of the hospital after getting thrashed by Takuma fucking Sakazaki himself.
>>29329701Yes, deadlock broke->>29329792OH COME ON.
>>29329297Bit of a manface, but I can see where the "living comic book character" comes from. Not a bad inspiration, especially considering the Red Sonja/Powergirl cross.>>29329926>>29329976Fine, I'll change to B. We should probably get cleaned up and changed (what are we wearing right now, and what are we changing into?).
>>29330007No idea what we're wearing, but we're about to tend bar, so... suit?
>>29330125>we're about to tend bar, so... suit?Suit.Full reverse trap modo?
>>29330125>>29330190Something appropriately masculine that doesn't immediately reveal her gender (that was her original gimmick when the character was created, after all). This isn't a fancy place, so pulling King's schtick with the suit feels out of place.I'm thinking camo pants and army boots, with a large tee. It's casual enough and roomy.Plus, Katja in a nice suit wasn't what I immediately pictured.
>>29330231>I'm thinking camo pants and army boots, with a large teeBomber jacket?
>>29330231>Katja in a nice suit wasn't what I immediately pictured.Really? I can't quite manage to stop.Yes, I know. Tasteless comment, but had to be done.
>>29330304That works too.
>>29330231>>29330304>>29330339No matter what, the girls are gonna have to get strapped if we're going for deception.
>>29330336You see something similar to this in a suit?
>>29330454Some of her sports bras are surprisingly slimming.
>>29330464...yes. An impeccably tailored suit. Mmmm.Somebody post the appropriate image. I can't seem to find it.
>>29330007Honestly, I went with April as the inspiration for Fiona Graves due to what I had read on her blog, as well as some of her "Shoot" interviews... Also, though she never got famous (Body was worn out by the time TNA put her on TV), she was a HELL of a wrestler in her prime.>>29330125>>29330190>>29330231>>29330336>What Katja's Wearing.A Black Bomber Jacket (>>29330304 & >>29330339 read my mind, but Katja's doesn't have any kind of fur fringe on collar), White T-Shirt underneath (With no kind of cleavage visible), White linnen Hand Wraps, Boot-Cut Navy Blue Jeans with a studded Black Belt and "Wompah Stompah" boots Basically, Blue Mary, but less millitary and vaguely punk-ish.>What she's going to wear tonightDepends on what Bobby Wilson asks her to do...Also, update in just a second Anons; Option B won the vote by the way.
>>29330679What did she say on her blog?
>>29330679>doesn't have any kind of fur fringe on collarSo it's like a classic A1. Awesome.
>>29330464>>29330573>>29330673Damn it boner, I'm trying to type!>>29330007>>29329701>>29329413After a little while longer hanging out with Fiona & Tsuyako, you start to feel a little conscious of the time, as well as your body odour (Which, Fiona assures you, is NOTHING compared to certain, nameless girls she's hung out with) and decide to start "Hittin' the road", as you succinctly put it."Well, alright. It's been a real blast Kat" Fiona says as she gives you one last hug hitting you with a bro-tastic chest-bump"It was nice meeting you" Tsuyako adds, a warm smile on her face as she shaks your hand "And hey, are you doing anything Saturday Night?"You pause, thinking of any plans you might have over the upcomming weekend (Aside from "Training your ass off", of course!) "I can't say I do. Why?""We're making our debut with the Southtown Wrestling Federation," Fiona adds, a sense of pride swelling in her voice "As a warm-up for our entry into this year's King of Fighter's tournament."'King of Fighters?' you think to yourself, seeing if the name rings any bells, before deciding it doesn't. 'Huh... Sounds like good, clean fun. " You dryly understate, mainly to try and hide your lack of knowledge surrounding the famed tournament."It's going to be awesome!" Tsuyako practically yells, the first time you hear any kind of positive feelings come out of her mouth for at least an hour as you watch her and Fiona walk out of the cafe together."Real crazy characters, huh?" You hear Bobby ask as you turn around on your stool to face him."Yeah, real nutters those two... Anyway, what time's my shift start guy?" You ask, a slight "Pur" in your voice.
>>29331139> this year's King of Fighters tournamentoh boy!! team pls!!Guess we have to somehow learn about it first
>>29331139"Well, that depends" Bobby says as he backs away from you a little, no doubt a bit put off by your stench. "If you want to wait tables, you gotta come in about two hours so we can pick out your wardrobe" He pauses, motioning you to the a dorr off near the Soundstage for musicians. "If you wanna try your luck working as a bouncer, you can arrive at 7 in whatever you want to wear... But honey, you gotta take a shower before you show yourself back here; You stink to high heaven!" he adds, holding his nose for comedic affect.You look at your watch and see that it's almost 2 PM Local time...What do you do?>A. Go for Waiting Tables; Our body needs to rest.>B. Gor for the Bouncer Gig; We're ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum, mate!>>29330723Eh, just stories about how she got into wrestling, a few funny anecdotes about the business, one cautionary tale of why you should never, EVER train for a bodybuilding competition , then go on a 3-Month Wrestling tour... Just interesting stuff in general.>>29331244That's what the Kyokugen Dojo is for.
>>29331283> BWe start later, and don't have a dress-code. Only real possibility.
>>29331283>A. Go for Waiting Tables; Our body needs to rest.We just left the hospital today. Let's take it easy before we kick our own ass.
>>29331283>BLet's do this!
>>29331283Is Bobby suppose to come off as flamboyantly gay? Because I read his lines and I can only imagine him being flamboyant.
>>29331283>B. Gor for the Bouncer Gig; We're ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum, mate!Bouncing seems more our speed.
>>29331375Bob is very much straight. He's also a Brazilian capoeirista and protege of Richard Meyer.
>>29331283>>A. Go for Waiting Tables; Our body needs to rest.Want to vote B. But... rest up for now.Besides. The idea of Katja trying to be polite amuses me no end.Also, the potential of somebody getting past the bouncers and then smacked down by the waitress.
>>29331375Yeah, pretty much, but he IS straight; He's just trying to emmulate his mentor, Richard Meyer... And failing horribly at it.
>>29331616Bob is a pretty happy-go-lucky fellow, either way.
>>29331635Very true; He wouldn't have let Katja slapping him slide if he weren't... He's just a bit innexperienced still when it comes to managing the Cafe.>>29331324>>29331352>>29331414"Bouncing sounds good to me" You say, a sense of bravado rising in your voice. Bobby whistles at your response, then adds "Are you sure? We get some pretty tough customers late at night.""I can handle 'em" You reply, grinning out of sgeer anticipation, then add "After all, I don't go to the Kyokugen Dojo 5 days a week for nothing"."Kyokugen...? Oh, you're with Ryo and Yuri then, eh? Cool." Bobby says, clearly impressed at your dedication to Martial Arts."Yeah, they're nice folk... Well, gotta get back to the 'ole flat and see what I'm going to wear" you sultrily say to Bobby before grabbing your duffle bag and walkin out of the cafe and back onto the mean streets of Southtown, USA.After about an hour and a half, you arrive at your appartment, ready to grab some fresh clothes and take a nice, long shower... When you open the door and find that your place has been ran-sacked; Drawers opened and ripped off their hinges, stuffing from your bed and pillows everywhere.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29332052>>B. Do SomethingCall Blue Mary. Salvage what we can. Still take that shower.
>>29332121Yeah, just about this.
>>29332052>>B. Do SomethingCall Mary. Take a shower. Call the bar and let Bob know we might need to borrow something to wear for work.
>>29332121Also, see if they actually took anything.
>>29332121>>29332141>>29332240>>29332182You calmly close the door behind you, drop your duffle bag on the ground next to your feet and grab your cellphone, dialing Blue Mary's number."Hey, this is Mary", the voice on the other line says. "I can't get to the phone right now; I'm either out on the job or on vacation. If you're getting this message, please hang up and try again later, so I garuntee that this line is secure. bye" you hear as the "Dail-Tone" noise starts to emit from your phone.Grumbling, you decide not to call the police and instead start to navigate the rat's nest made in the center of your room to look and see if any of your valuables are missing. Curiously, none of them are; Your safe-deposit box is still filled with an adequate amount of cash ($20,000, enough for about three months of living here you recall) and a few valuables; Somehow, your stuffed Koala Bear that you've had since 5 years old was still completely intact, letting out a HUGE sigh of releif as you hug it for a moment.After about an hour of cleaning up the place, you take a nice, relaxing shower, the hot water washing away all of the filth and grime you accumilated over the last few days. However, when you go to grab some clothes, you find that your wardrobe is completely gone... Except for your Leather Riding Suit that you sometimes use when you go out on your 'bike."Bloody 'ell! What fucking next, an asteroid fallin' on me damn 'ead!?" You shout as you furiously call 411, then Bobby at the Cafe and tell him an abridged version of what happened."Shit... Do you have a 13 tatooed on your back or something? Or a black cat?" Bobby pauses, then adds "Listen, if you get here quick enough we could probably fit you in one of the old men's suits we keep around for spares."
>>29332836Might as well get there then.
>>29332836It's as good as anything. And here I was contemplating packing up and moving into the dojo.>I've been robbed. Mind if I crash here?
>>29332836"Right... Gotcha; See you soon." you all-but yell as you scramble to find your helmet, get your leathers, boots and gloves on as quickly as you can, lock up the appartment ("A fat load of good that'll do" you mutter) and sprint down to the underground parking garage, your Motorcycle (A Triumph Thruxton that was a graduation gift from your parents) waiting for you.You blip the engine for a few moments and then peel off out of the garage and into the setting sun, time not on your side...>Roll 1d50 for how fast you get to the Pao Pao Cafe Any roll below 15 and you miss the start of your shift.>>29332873>>29332939Sorry about that; Hit the character limit and had to split this update in half.
>>29333006Pao Pao Cafe 2, sorry.
Rolled 26>>29333006Hey, if Ryo can blaze across Southtown in a gi on a motorcycle, so can we.Except we're not in a gi.
>>29333057Exactly what I was going for... Also, a little bit of Akira Kazama from Project Justice as well for flavour.
Rolled 21>>29333135Shit, forgot to roll for Traffic Density!
>>29333057>>29333093As you blast through the seedy back alleys and side-streets of southtown to try and avoid "Rush Hour" traffic, you wonder if it could possible to maybe get in touch with Ryo or Yuri and see if you can live at the Kyokugen Dojo for a few days... "Hi guys, I've been robbed. Mind if I crash here?" You think to yourself, only for your chibi-like fantasy to be dashed by Mr. Karate delivering an uppercut to your chibi-chin, yelling "A TRUE Martial Artist lives outdoors!"You shake that vision out of your head as you pull into the Cafe 2's parking lot, your pulse racing as you lock up the bike's front wheel with a chain you found nearby.By the time you get your helemt off and walk in through the back door, it's 6 PM exactly and Bobby checks you out from head to toe."Damn... If you told me you were going to wear something like that, you wouldn't have needed to come in so early!" He says, a grin on his face as he closes the back door behind you."Well, this was about all I had left" you mention as you playfully pull down a little bit of your zipper, Bobby getting passing glances at your pleasing silhouette."Well, I got a couple of Suits ready... You want to try them out?" He says as he leads you into a small, windowless room with three different suits laying on a fold-out chair.>A. Try out the suits to Stay Classy>B. Keep the Bike Leathers on and make people think you're K-DASH
>>29333892>>A. Try out the suits to Stay ClassyMy vote should be fairly clear by this point. ^_^
>>29333892A. Try out the suits to Stay ClassyIn part because K' is a dirty scrub, but also we don't want to ruin literally the only other clothes we have left.Plus, we'll see how people take to a well-built man(?) in a suit.
>>29333892B. Can't be a true badass without our leather.
>>29333984This is the Pao Pao Cafe (2), not some biker's bar.
>>29333969>K' is a dirty scrubLies. K` is awesome. You're a dirty scrub.
>>29334144K' is a tryhard coolguy of the highest order, worse than Kyo and Iori.At least compared to those three, when Terry pulls his "too cool for school" card, he's fun to be around and isn't as big of an asshole about it.
>>29334200Uh huh, sounds like you're a jealous scrub.
>>29333963>>29333969You take a look at the suits and decide you want to try them on, partly because you want to feel more like a full-time staff member, but main ly because you're starting to feel the sweat drip your bodysuit."Yeah, let's go with the suits"."OK, I'll check up on you in a little bit" He says as he walks down the hallway and through a door that seems to lead to the kitchen, leaving you alone.You take a few glances around before closing the door to the room behind you and you strip down to your skivies; A Matching Black "Minimiser" Bra and a pair "Boy Shorts" as you try on the first suit... Only to find that's just a lttle too big for you; You might be able to roll up the sleeves and pant legs a bit, but it just wouldn't feel right.You then try on the second suit, only to discover that it's too small; In actuality, it might look pretty sexy if you were in the mood to show off (As nothing chafes or rubs hard against your skin), but you toss that one aside and try on the last suit... Which, while comfy, is clearly the most well-worn of the three, a few places seemingly held on with safety pins and willpower alone. As you take off the last suit, You hear a knock on the door. "Hey, you almost ready?" You hear Bobby yell."Yeah, just about" You reply as you quickly ponder which suit to wear.>A. Dress Comfortable (Over-sized Suit)>B. Dress Provocative (Too-Small Suit)>C. Dress Simple (The Other Suit)>D. Mix-and-Match (Roll 1d50 for efficiency and design cohesion if you pick this option)
Rolled 33>>29334527>D. Mix-and-Match (Roll 1d50 for efficiency and design cohesion if you pick this option)
>>29334527>C. Dress Simple (The Other Suit)It'll be impressive if we ever hulk out.
>>29334527>>B. Dress Provocative (Too-Small Suit)This choice has no downsides.None whatsoever.
Rolled 43>>29334674I'll switch to D just for a majority.
Rolled 16>>29334646>>29334816Wise choice, though not exactly what I had in mind... Still, a quest is a quest, bo matter how long it takes.Speaking of which, rolling for possible rips and/or tears in your clothing as you try to get them on.
>>29334646>>29334816You frantically scramble to get dressed, taking different things you liked about different parts of the three suits you had tried on; The Pant Legs from the Over-sized suit (That felt like it was built for a 400lb Sumo Wrestler) that you roll up, the Dress Shirt and Bow-tie of the Old suit (That seems to have held up better than the coat or pants) and the short, inner part of the smallest suit that you decide to wear like the inner vest of a three-piece suit (Sans coat, ov course).You check your phone for one last time to find it's 6:55 PM as Bobby leads you out to the front of the Cafe, several waiters and waitresses busily prepping the tables as you walk past them. "Not bad" He quietly says as he leads you out to the front of the Cafe.

>>29335481>>29335759One vote's all it takes, I guess."Got it Boss; No sweat" you reply, trying to sound confident as he let's you outside to a baying mob of people; Some of them obviously looking like fighters to you, most of the rest of them are the usual run-of-the-mill club rats and ghetto hooligans you've lived around for the last year or so.You take a moment to compose yourself as the doors to the Pao Pao Cafe 2 open at 7 PM precisely, yoor left hand on the clipboard and your right on the velvet rope that sepperates the masses from going inside...>A.

If I had to offer feedback on the quest so far, it's easy to tell it's a KoF (or at least SNK) quest with all the references and direct interaction with characters of note.The characterization is passing, and while Katja's personality is still being formed over the course of these little decisions, she's still rather clean. The other characters are fleeting, and though most of them are already characterized in the games themselves (for what it's worth), it's hard to see them come out fully here. The OCs are fleeting, so I can't say enough about them yet, though at least one of them has a notable persona.The setting has yet to really come alive. We know what Southtown is, but for those who don't, it's yet to really come across what the city is, how it sounds and feels, what makes it so interesting and so tough.Your posts integrate participant input pretty well and in a way that generally makes sense. You at least offer options, even if they are inherently open-ended (say/do something).Your narration style is relatively objective and pragmatic, focusing on external details and the scene itself rather than any internal thoughts and rationalizations (though they are still there in passing).All in all, the fanservice has made the quest what it is, but beyond that, there is still much room to grow and build, and I'm not just talking about Katja's overall character.3/5, it's a work in progress.>>29335973>A. Play through this sequence as Katja in Hour-by-Hour chunks
>>29335973>B. Timeskip to later that night
>>29336226Changing to>B. Timeskip to later that night
>>29336226That's a pretty fair assesment. This is the first reall attempt I've made at running something like this and, as I've stated in the Quest Generals, I really don't have much a clue as how I can make it run better, as the few responses I have gotten felt like they were written by trolls... In truth, It might have been better off keeping this on the cutting room floor, or taking more time to fully flesh out what I had in mind...
>>29336485It's a work in progress. It's hard to improve if you don't do.
>>29335973>>B. Timeskip to later that nightI would say A, but I'll be abed soon.>>29336485It's still going. You're creating a player-developed character. Give it time, things'll get fleshed out.
>>29336555Very true... Shit, I might just have to put this Quest on hiatus then, or make a non-daily occurence (If only so I can practice more and get quicker with my responses, as well as craft them better)...>>29336286>>29336332>>29336962As the night wears on, you start to wonder if the life you chose for yourself is worth all the trouble you seem to be getting into; Events of the last few days pop up at seemingly random times as you deal with increasingly irrate patrons, most of them you feel wouldn't even give you a second glance if you weren't there, giving them the coldest, meanest look you could muster. At times, you get yelled at for not recognizing their name on the list you carry, get shoved aside when a "VIP" arrives (Usually with a woman that looks like a living Barbie Doll on one arm) without bothering to check in and you feel misreable the whole time... Especially when you used your Karate Knowledge on some backwards-cap wearing "SWAGgot" that pushed one-too-many buttons too fast, too soon.You felt his jaw dislocate with one swift punch to his face and his ribs move when you knee'd him in the stomach, though while such feelings would almost excite you when sparring at the Dojo, now they felt hollow, empty..."Why do I fight?", you think to yourself for the first time in ages as the early-night rush slows to a crawl, leaving yourself virtually alone. And, for the first time in a long, long time, you can't really find an answer. That fact both surprises and scares the hell out you, especially since you've spent countless amounts of money pursuing this dream... Yet here you are, nearly 30 years old, standing out in the cold, brightly-lit night working for pocket change while your dad's the largest Emu Farmer in all of Austrailia... Which again, leads you back to your first question: "Why DO you fight?"
>>29337128We fight to survive the outback has taught us that much... never forget that grueling time in the world's end game dungeon
>>29337128To challenge myself. To grow stronger through that challenge.
>>29337195This. It takes a certain breed of person togo and move to southtown
>>29337128Because the world is harsh. You fight, or you die. We knew it as kids, and the last few days have driven it home more than ever. Home is a deathworld, and by the time we're done we'll be the nastiest bugger in it.
>>29337128Because if you're strong enough, if you've got the guts to go for it, and the power to back it up, dreams aren't just imaginings, but things you can grasp with your own hands.
>>29337598Preach on math nigga

>>29337128You know that it's not for money, or fame; A part of you still shakes your head as you look at how the "Lives" of pop stars, athletes and actors get chronicled on a day-to-day, nearly hour-to-hour relay of needless information and wonder why anyone would WANT to have a life like that, one of no privacy ("Well, aside from personal riches of course, but then again what good are they when things can't give one happiness? Or can "True" happiness simply not be achieved unless you convince yourself that it can be obtained in the first place? ARGGH! Curse you four years of psychology lectures at The University of New South Wales!"). Then you wonder if it's due to protecting oneself, protecting others... And again, the answer comes up blank at first; Fact is, you never really had it bad throughout your life, aside from some racial tension in your first year of Highschool, which was when the subject of your Aborigine ancestry came up... Or, specifically, when a group of seniors tried to have their drunken way with you one boozy night.The memory isn't exactly pleasant, but you thank god with all of your heart that you were starting to take Martial Arts seriously, even back then, for otherwise who would've been raped, then maybe beaten in a "By-the-numbers" hate crime that the local buggers back the district startion would've swept under the rug... Hell, you still get shivers from that ordeal, the first time you had blood on your hands reliving itself sometimes when you bloody them nearly 15 Years later...
>>29337237>>29337598>>29337724>>29338255Then you remember all of those summers at you dad's farm, out in the vast open plains up near Brisbane, living in a house with no electricity or indoor plumbing (Well, at first anyway), constantly whining about the heat and the lack things to occupy a young, hyperactive mind such as yours. "Look, Katie, I didn't bring you here for a good time" Your dad told you, the start of a speach of his that has wormed its way into your memory. "I braught you here to teach you that this is what the world's like when you get older; It's harsh. You either fight your way out, or you wither up and die... Why, I used to dream of getting of this farm when I was a lad your age too" He pauses, seemingly to let his words sink in. "But I know now that if you're strong enough, if you've got the guts to go for it, and the power to back it up, dreams aren't just imaginings, but things you can grasp with your own two hands."You smile at that; That was the day that you truly loved your dad, with all your heart... And now you realize that an answer to your querie was right in front of you all along; Hell, it's been with since you were a kid! "To challenge myself. To grow stronger through that challenge. My Home is a deathworld, and by the time I'm done I'll be the nastiest bugger ever to walk in it." You say to yourself, your brain kick-started at such a ground-breaking realization.However, as if to break the mood, a lethal-looking black limosuine pulls up to the curb, a brightly-decorated Chauffer stepping out of the passenger side to open the door as five different, immaculately dressed people step out."'Scuse Me, sir? We've got a reservation."You check your watch and find that it's nearly 1 O'clock in the morning, with the lights outside of the Cafe mostly dim...
>>29338255>A. Tell them that we're closed for the night>B. Check to see if these clowns actually have reservations before deciding what to do next>C. Let them through without so much as a second thought>D. Something ElseLast roll of the night, then a Q & A maybe?

>>29338525>>29338618You take a long look at the man in front of you and idly wonder if he might be a Rapper you've never heard of, or (More Likely) a Drug Kingpin; He has a Bald head that's the same color of his Tan Skin, quite tall and fairly Well-Built, though it's hard to tell if he's fit due to how his suit and coat seem to fit him, with a girl on each arm... Accent sounds familiar to you though. "Yeah, TOTALLY not-conspicuous right?" You think to yourself as you decide to drop the matter and do the job you're getting paid for. "Name?" You ask, holding out your clipboard as you ready our eyes and ears for a last name."Yes... Check for 'Gabriel', party of five" you hear a somewhat cold, detached-sounding voice say behind the man in front of you, the owner of said voice making his way over to where you stand. He's got blonde hair and is about 5'11" Tall, but the first thing you immediately notice about him is that the his eyes look like they could pierce right through to your soul. His thinl build is accented by a Navy Blue suit that he wears sans tie, with a white button-up shirt underneath. While you admit that he's pretty cute, there's something ... "Off" about him; His smile seems to be too wide, his teeth a little too bright, his overall demeanor suggesting that he's about to stab you in the gut so he could snatch your purse, rather than be genuinely friendly..."Look, we're in a bit of a hurry; Could you just let us in?" the last person of the group chips in, his clothes almost blending in to the faded light around you and the other four. You freeze for a moment, a hazy flashback to the dream you had the other night coming to light in a split-second: This man looks EXACTLY like the man you had followed into the mists, right down to the black clothes, the long Black Hair and the Beard... "Oh what in the absolute FUCK" you think to yourself as you tell them that yes, they do have reservations for Gabriel, part of five and wordlesslylet them in...
>>29339062You begin to lead them to what you hope is the Cafe's biggest table, though you quicklly find a table that (Curiously, you note) hasn't had it's chairs set up for closing yet... "Take a seat please; I'll ask someone to grab you a few menus" You say in the nicest voice you can fake, though alarm bells are ringing off in your head as you find Bobby at the farthest end of the bar, cleaning out a glass pitcher.>A. Ask him what the fuck is going on>B. Tell him you want your money NOW, then split>C. Something Else
>>29339155>>A. Ask him what the fuck is going on"There's sommut very wrong with this here picture, Bob. Mind telling me what?"
>>29339217>>29339217"There's sommut very wrong with this here picture, Bob. Mind telling me what?" You ask, trying to keep your voice low enough that no one could eavesdrop on you. He takes a forlorn look at you, his usual quick smile absent from his face."Let's just say that they're all good customers and we'll leave it at, alright? Now go home; It's getting late and your money's on the table." Bobby uses a secret hatch in the bar to walk out and head over to personally check in on the new guests, mumbling "Just like in the faevelas" as he walks by...(Pause Updates)Well, the vice of time has closed in on me, so I'm putting this thread on Ice until I wake back up. If it's still around, I'll continue it; If not, I'll make a new one at around 1 PM PST Tomorrow.
>>29339851In the case the thread stay up long enough for you to see it, I do have some feedback to offer.First off, I think the time the thread starts could be a problem. Although I can understand with you being on PST, makes it a bit complicated for anyone outside of EST to find and participate in the thread.Second. As one of the guy said higher in the thread, Katja still has to be defined, I have a hard time imagining what the character looks and think like. Guess it's because we are still early in the story.And related to that, and as a way to remedy to that fuzziness around the character, I think we could use some more fights. This is KoF after all, the talking is foreplay before the fight that settle things in.Personally I would love to be more active in the quest but by the time I come by and follow around it gets really really late where I am.Can't wait to see what it's going to happen with those 5 five guys.
>>29342143Yeah, I'm going to be pushing for more fights the farther we go down the line (And I kick myself for not having a Brawl with "Dr. McStabbyNinja" when I very much could've); This IS KoF after all.Also, I'm going to "Un-Pause" this topic at 1 PM EST, 10 AM PST and see if that'll get more interest among possible players...
>>29344729(Updates now resume)You silently watch Bobby head over to the far-end of the cafe and try to make the same kind of small-talk he had with you, Fiona Graves & Tsuyako earlier in the day, though you can tell by his body language that he's not exactly enjoying having to deal with these people ("Well, why would he?" You think to yourself).Looking around the bar, you find a white near the very front of the serving area, near the door to the back that Bobby lead you out of earlier that night. Curious, you inspect the envelope and find it filled with about $300 worth of cash; Around tripple the amount you expected to be paid for your services. "Probably to shut me up over seeing those blokes after-hours" you muse to yourself, again trying to keep calm and not draw any unwanted attention to yourself.>A. Take Bobby's advice and split with your cash>B. See if you can eavesdrop on the party of five and find out what they're up to>C. Something else...

>>29345391>>29345447You figure that something fishy's going on and . However, you aren't quite sure what or how to get over there...

OK, I'm back; Let's Blade Boogie!>>29346038>>29346143You briefly consider jumping the waiter and stealing his clothes, but think better of it as you stealthily walk around the bar and head back into the kitchen, finding the waiter and Bobby screaming at each other in what you asume is Portugese. After a few minutes, Bobby throws up his hands and storms off without saying a word, leaving you and the young Waiter tanding in silence, the only sounds you can here comming from the kitchen as the cooks prepare a few special meals for the night..."Oi... I know it's sudden, but why don't you let me handle this 'un; I 'appen know these guys" You fib as the waiter stares at you for a moment, then starts to hurriedly strip down to his boxer shorts, handing you his clothes before yelling "You're on your own!" in broken english before running away from you, down the hall where you had changed earlier.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something
>>29346971>B. Do SomethingPut on the uniform and get to it.
>>29346971>>29347028 Go for it!!
>>29347028>>29347086You take a quick glance around before taking off most of your clothes and swapping them for the suit that the terrified waiter gave you... And find that, while not perfectly fitting (The length of the sleeves being slightly too short), you look and feel more confident than you had wearing . Brimming with confidence, you waltz into the kitchen and pick up a few serving trays, accompanied by a somewhat cute, Black waitress wearing an outfit similar to yours, though with a skirt instead of dress pants... You wordlessly walk behind her as you try to use all of your balance to not drop the serving trays your carrying; It's a lot like an exercise you remember doing when you were a kid (Carrying heavy buckets of water from your house's personal wellspring).As you slowly walk up to the table, (Food thankfully intact!) you can't help but overhear the topic of discussion..."And that's what I'm saying; You can't grow a city's economy on that kind of money. It isn't sustainable." The blonde with the serial-killer good looks says, seemingly agitated as he's locked in a heated conversation with the Bald man that talked with you earlier."Nigga, we make our own economy 'round here... Shit, where were you whenn the police gave up two years ago? WE run these streets." The man boasts, pointing to his chest as you start to set the food down."Hmm?... What happened to the other waiter?" The Man in Black (Sitting next to the youthful Blonde man) asks as you feel as though the eyes at the table all start to look at you.>A. Roll 1d50 for Bluff>B.

Rolled 39>>29347395>>29347476Your mind races as you fish for a reply to this guy's question, knowing that one wrong slip up could expose you to some rather tough-looking customers, now that you notice them up close. "The guy from earlier had some stomach problems and asked me to fill in" You calmly reply, before adding "Can I get you gentlemen anything else?""Got any whiskey?" a young man with Purple Hair to match his gaudy suit asks, his voice having a fairly high pitch to it.>A.

>>29347544>picI WANT TO GET OFF COSGROVE'S WILD RIDE!
>>29347673"Yes... How would you like it?" You ask, trying not to crack up at the sound of this guy's voice looking so "Off" from the body that inhabits it."On the rocks, if you can" He replies, taking a quick, longing look at you before adding "See if you have any Jim Beam.""Sure... One moment" You tell him as you slowly turn away from the table and head back to the bar...>Meanwhhile, at the table...The Man in Black nudges the person sitting next to him ("Gabriel") and whispers "I'm pretty sure that's the target from earlier today... From the hospital.""How can you tell?" "Gabriel" whispers back, holding up his hand to ask for a moment with The Man in Black."Well, you can't really miss her; She has a fairly unique look and build." He whispers, before asking "Should I take care of right now?""It's up to you... I mainly brought you here for intimidation more than anything else" "Gabriel" replies as he turns back to the bald man and clears his thoat.>Back to KatjaYou head up to the to bar and hop over it to the other side, careful not to crash into anything as you land on both feet.

>>29348079>>29348079You grab a half-full bottle of Johnny Walker and pour him a glass, careful to add the ice so that it doesn't spill too much as you walk back over to the table, the conversation turning into a full-blown arguement."OK, fine... Look, if you want to keep living out this ghetto trash fantasy into your forties, then by all means knock yourself out; What I'm TRYING to get through to you is that the only way out from that is either a prison cell or a bodybag.""Motherfuckah, you listen to ME. I came here 25 years ago, fresh off the boat from Queensland with this coat, these sticks, a pair of pants, two pair of socks and underwear and some worn-out shoes" the tan bald man from earlier says, before stretching his arms out and saying "And look at where I am now. You can't make my story up; I'm the American Fuckin' Dream staring right back at you, the symbol of what a man can do in this town through fightin' and you want to tear that up just so you can make a quick buck? Fuck you."You hand the glass of whiskey to the Purple-Haired man with the high voice, telling him "I couldn't find any 'o Jim...

Walk away, but stay close enough to try and eavesdrop on the conversation while doing chores around the table (Mop up the floor, wipe off tables etc. etc.)>B.

>>29348421>>29348508Judging from the Bald guy's words, as well as the looks from the "Fith Man" of the group (Long, flowing Blonde Hair, eyes you swear look red wearing a White suit with black & Blue accents), you decide to take your leave and head back through the kitchen, grabbing the money that you had left on the counter as you walk past.As you head back to your ersatz changing room, you swear you can hear footsteps following you...>A.

>>29348716>>29348881You keep walking, mainly to keep whoever's following you from gaining ground, but also because you want to get the fuck out of this increasingly-dangerous place and get some sleep... You go inside the "Changing room", happy to see that nothing had been taken while you were on shift as you lock the door behind you and start to strip down, putting your riding leathers back on. You're almost ready to head out when you hear a knock on the door while putting on your helmet...You freeze, your adrenaline pumping as you assume a combat stance as the person on the otherside knocks again (Mimicing "Shave and a Haircut" as they do so)...>A.

You yell, then shift into your "Ready" stance, holding your motorcycle helmet with your left hand, ready to bash the face on whoever's on the otherside of the door.After an almost deadly silence, the person on the otherside slams into the door three times, the third hit blasting the door off it's hinges and making a fair amount of dust as bags of baking flour around you split open from the wooden shrapnel of the door...What do you do?>A.

Besides, if she were any lower on the attributes, Dan Hibiki might've been able to beat her... As it stands right now in the story, I feel that Katja could probably give Yuri Sakazaki a run for her money... Win? Probably not, at least not without luck. Challenge?

>>29352848>>29353234A much faster and cleaner way to run fights is to, instead of being so granular, offer several vague tactics to follow given a situation (with rolls where needed), and play out a chunk of combat at a time. For example, in this situation (knocked him slightly off balance but appears to be sizing us up), you could offer:>Rush him down and force the issue. If he's on his back foot, a bit more should send him reeling.>Apply pressure with a bit of extra range. Strong attacks like the Kou'ou Ken can both maintain our distance and keep him off-balance.>Take it easy. He seems to be sizing us up, so don't give him anything to work with. If anything, try to feel HIM out.>Look for a weapon. There's got to be something to work with in this storeroom.>Other
>>29353234>She hasn't learned how to do them yet...Careful not to make her a copy of Ryo.

You Ukemi out of the throw, but your back is literally up against the wall (Or Door, in this case) as The Man in Black rushes towards you, overwhelming you with a series of concise punches and kicks, the last hit of which knocks you out the door and into the parking lot behind the Pao Pao Cafe 2."This guy fights like a sociopath" you think as you roll to your feet as The Man in Black does some quick neck stretches, then >A.

You're able to block most of his strikes, but the damage he's doing to you in comparison to the throw set-ups you've caught him in are apples & oranges; you can feel your strength starting to wane as he again rushes towards you, his arms outstretched in a throw attempt."What's the matter?"

The good guys don't dress in black" You crack as you walk over to the sprawled-out body of "The Man in Black", cautiously keeping your guard up in case he might be faking his injuries.One look at him, though, and you wondered why that was considered a plausible scenario; His eyes look wild and out-of-focus and his mouth is trickling blood on one side, his chest heaving for air... Though he does notice you walking over to him, "So he can't be THAT far off" you think to yourself. "L-Leave me... Alone" he tells you, practically caughing the words out of his mouth as you squat down next to him."It was a nice try, mate. But you need ta pick yer targets better." You playfully tease him, before punching him across the face a few times, yelling "And DON'T you EVER do THAT aGAIN!"He dosen't cock his head back after your last punch as a twisted-looking smile breaks out on his face. "Bloody weirdo... I bet you get off on this, dinnya ya sicko!" you say to him as you whip out your cellphone, elliciting a few chuckles from the man in black you're squatting next to."You're wasting your time if you call the police" He tells you, before coughing up some more blood. "My boss has connections, that have connections, that have CONNECTIONS... They'll probably arrest YOU for attacking ME" he says, the words dribbling out of one side of his mouth.>A. Say Something>B. Do Something>>29358021We have a scaled-down version as our "Blow-Back Attack" (KoF equivalent of a Combo Breaker, though not super useful in most cases).Remember guys, Katja is NOT Ryo, Robert, Yuri, Takuma/Mr. Karate or even Marco Rodruiguez; She's her own character moveslist-wise.
"I got robbed, my place got ransacked, I have no money, I have two sets of clothes including this leather suit, I had to work a bouncer shift at the Pao Pao Cafe 2 to pay for my meal, I ended up listening to a mobster meeting at said cafe, and as the bruises can tell you, some mobster hitman just tried to kill me."Mind if I crash here with you guys for a while?">Katja, to Ryo and Yuri at the entrance of the Kyokugen-ryuu Karate dojo, in the middle of the night
>>29358259OK, I chuckled.

>>29358258>>B. Do SomethingKick him in the head until he passes out. Scarper. Try to get in touch with Ryo or Yuri, then administer the wonderful speech.V - - - here>>29358259You forgot to mention Doc Stabbyninja. Throw that in and I'm with you.
>>29358259"...and in case you didn't hear and the bruises didn't give it away, I've had two attempts on my life IN THE SAME DAY: once from a guy masquerading as a doctor in the hospital, and the other a mobster hitman who wanted to scrap behind the cafe."

>>29358718Now why would we want to cause Bob needless property damage?
>>29358945Because he's serving the kind of people who'd put a hit on us.
>>29358334>>29358463"Not the cops mate. Ambulance." You tell him as you dial 911 and tell them that "Ya gotta bleeder 'ere in the back alley of the Pao Pao Cafe 2", then hang up when you hear the sirens off in the distance."As for what ya; said before... Well, good thing you won't recognize me, then." You coldly say, no, STATE as you start to punch and kick him until he passes out, though not without a smile on his face... "Hate this bloody place sometimes" you say to no one in particular as you look around to find your Motorcyle parked where it had been all night (Thank God!" you hear your mind saying). Before you head out on the bike though, you drag the body of "The Man in Black" out to the front of the Cafe, the limosuine from before now gone... With it being as late as it is, traffic is virtually non-existant and you get back to your pad in record time (Within 15 Minutes of departing from the Pao Pao Cafe 2). You park the 'bike and head back up the stairs, dreading that someone ELSE is going to jump you with a knife, or a gun or something as you open the door... To find that everything was exactly where you left it.You breath a sigh of relief and start to pack a small bag or two; You grab the money out of your safe, "Grumbly-Wumbly" (Your stuffed Koala Bear) and a few other trinkets and your lap-top computer among other things and fit them into a few Saddle-bags that came with your 'bike (Mindful of wrapping up your valuables in cloth and packing them extra-tight) as you take one last look at "Home"... Before heading off to the one place in South Town you KNOW is safe to stay the night...>Timeskip to 2:30 AM at the entrance to the Kyokugen Dojo"Who the hell could that be?" You hear a drowsey-sounding Ryo mutter as he opens the sliding-screen door to dojo to find you standing in front of him, packed bags "Katja? You're a real night owl, aren't you?""Yeah, runs in me family" you jest as you hear more footsteps from inside.
>>29358983He probably doesn't really have a choice there. The kind of people who'd put a hit on us run this town, and would probably put a hit on him if he pissed 'em off.
>>29359146Not if HON-FU, HONG KONG SUPERCOP is on the case.
>>29359091>>29358259>>29358611"Ryo? Who is it?" An equally tired-sounding Yuri Sakazaki asks as her "N-nani?!""Look, I know it's sudden, but I got robbed, my place got ransacked, I have no money, I have two sets of clothes including this leather suit, I had to work a bouncer shift at the Pao Pao Cafe 2 to pay for my meal, I ended up listening to a mobster meeting at said cafe, and as the bruises can tell you, some mobster hitman just tried to kill me." you tell them, not missing a beat and understating the events that have plagued you over the last three days. "Mind if I crash here with you guys for a while?""Whoa..." Ryo says, his voice in total disbelief. "That's... I mean, that's just... Whoa" Yuri adds, equally shocked and somewhat "Loopy".You chuckle inwardly at the sight of thier jaws dropping after hearing your explanation, then add "Oh yeah, and in case you didn't hear and the bruises didn't give it away, I've had two attempts on my life IN THE SAME DAY: once from a guy masquerading as a doctor in the hospital, and the other a mobster hitman who wanted to scrap behind the cafe.""Dude, just get in inside" Ryo tells you as you follow him to a room that Robert Garcia used when he lived there full time. "It's not much, but it can be yours for as long as you need it to be" he explains, before rubbing his eyes and taking a deep yawn. "Well, I won't keep you. Besides, I got to get up in like three hours anyway" He says before heading back to his room."Just.. It's just crazy what happened to you this week..." Yuri says, her voice almost making you think she's sleepwalking."Yah, I know. I'm tougher'n that though. Now get some sleep Sunshine" You tell her as you start to stip down to your skivvies while also unpacking a sleeping bag you were glad to carry with you, finally going to sleep at 2:45 Am.>A.

>>29359409>B. Timeskip training montage..Still say we should've tossed MiB through the Window.
>>29359440While that's tempting to try and go for laughs, let's play it straight. >New Thread Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0I-IgfpSEQAlso, appologies for the long wait for this update.>>29359981>>29359502Though Takuma initially protested you staying at the Dojo, he gradually relented as you make some impressive strides in your training, though it took you about a week of light work-outs and resting before you felt comfortable with sparring again.When you did, you easily mopped up the Dojo's floor with the few other trainees in your skill level; Shit, most of them hadn't even HEARD of a "Ha-ow-shoe-ohken" (As one dude from the Midwest butchered it), yet you were able to throw them out with relative ease, though not as well as the "Grand Masters" of Kyokugen you lived with on a daily basis.After accidentally sending one particularly boastful student to the hospital, Yuri stepped in to be your sparring partner and the two of you hit it off like Fire & Water; The matches that you would have with her could almost be the highlight of the day for most of the students there as you began to truly learn the Art of Fighting.Yuri was a good sport about it though and you couldn't really complain; She took you clothes shopping two days after you had arrived (though she mostly tried to introduce more "Girlie" outfits into your wardrobe, which you mostly refused out of hand) and had bugged Ryo enough to help you try to learn Japanese to a fair extent, though mostly all you could do was curse people out and order a beer in Kansai-Ben Diallect (Robert Garcia's Japanese Accent, curiously enough).As for the scroll that was given to you... Well, though you had read through it, and generally understood the thoery of how to harness one's inner Ki (Or so you thought), it just didn't seem to work. It helped control your Ki slightly better, as it was easier to throw out projectiles faster, but the actual strength of your Ki seemed suspect.
>>29360285On Ryo & Takuma's advice, you started to do "Nature Walks" through the wild expanses of South Town National Park, sometimes spending up to three days at a time out in the wilderness with only a Machete (Which Ryo thought was a full-sized sword judging from the size of your "Knife"), a backpack, a compass, food rations and the clothes you wore to keep yourself company.It was while on one of those walks that you... Well... "Felt it"; Felt a thunderstorm on the horizon, felt the sky rumble and the lightning crackle around you... And it felt like home. It felt natural to you, rather than being frightened or nervous; You welcomed the electricity in the air, almost where you could feel that energy rise through you, almost reach out of your finger tips at times, but never more than that. Curiously, "Regular" projectiles felt more difficult to use after that one day, to the point where you once tried to use a Ha'oh Ken, but nothing came out of your fist... It was enough of a worry that Takuma sent to Lee Pai Long, an old rival of his that was world-famous for finding a cure for hemmroids (Among other things).He put you on a training regiment to unlock your inner element (which, incedentally, reminded you of the "Seals" oin the "Bablefish Scroll"), but the progress has been slow, mostly due to the time it took you to understand "Zen" and how it applies to your body.After about and a half, you start to feel almost a part of the Kyokugen Family, with no crazy yardie hitmen dressed like traffic cops or street mimes coming out to get you... >A.

>>29360610>>29360616Good to see ya' around Tiger. Sleep well.>>29360648>>29360695>>29360709It was after that day that the first rumblings of a new "King of Fighter's" Tournament reached your ears, though at first you didn't give it much thought; The simple act of training, of mastering the energy that you could feel inside of you, untapped but more than ready to reach the surface felt like enough...But, after about a week after giving a non-commital "Oh, that sounds like fun", the itch of a REAL fight started to wear on you. Not that sparring with Yuri wasn't fun, mind you, but there was that certain something that she lacked when she fought with you... Maybe it was the drive to actually try and hurt you the way someone you didn't know, but you started to make a few calls and headed out to the Pao Pao Cafe 2 from time to time, having your fill of some of the best and brightest young fighter's around.The thing that got you the most though, was that a lot of them were no better than the scrubs you hosed back at the Dojo; In fact, some of them (Dude from Taiwain who had mastered the "Crab Style" of fighting, an asian dude who thought he was Ghengis Khan and was a Mongolian Sumo Wrestler, a VERY young-looking girl who seemingly had to lie about her age to get in the fights, then fiught with what she called "Practocal Magic" were flat-out HORRIBLE! But, the fact that you had fought them all and won most of the time helped your battle tendencies out tremendously.As for "Doc McStabbyNinja" and The Man in Black, well, you heard very little about either of them; Indeed, it seemed as though most of the ruffians and dregs of society gave you a wide berth, though you didn't mind all that much.>A.

>>29361187>>29361187>You now assume Direct Control of Katja HartkernYou wake up at around 6:30 AM, the light breeze passing through your window as you begin another day at the Dojo, though today you're taking a well deserved rest from training to take a day out to do... Well, whatever you feel like, I suppose.You still do a few warm-up stretches as you start to get your brain to fire on all cylinders, though you start to overhear a heated conversation between Yuri & Takuma.:Oh, C'mon dad Please? She's been here for like 2 months solid"The answer is NO Yuri; I will not have a person that hasn't even mastered basic Ki control to go out and represent my Art in the largest Fighting Tournament on earth" Takuma replies, a stern look on her face. "It's not about her skill as a fighter; It's about the fact that Marco has been with the Dojo longer than any other student aside from Robert & Katja. He deserves a chance to prove himself on the world stage." Takuma added, a slow scowl creeping across his face at her only daughter's increasingly child protests."Oh come ON dad! Can't she at least try to to team up with me and King? Or somebody else?" She asks.Takuma raises a hand and rubs his chin for a little bit, before saying "That... Is acceptable, yes." Yuri ran down the halls of the Dojo and knocked on your door, wanting to share some pretty important news for you...(End Update)Well, it's getting late and Father Time has my mind in a vice grip... If it's alright, I'll start up the next thread at 1PM EST, 10 AM PST.Train Hard and Follow your dreams /tg/!
>>29357662Hummm, after consideration I liked it better when you gave us the option to choose among her different moves.Maybe a mix of both styles would be best? "You press on with a Shippu Kyaku""You wait for an opening, unleashing a Kohou!"Anyway, nice to see the guy go down though.Also, before I forget, it would be wise to not just straight up gain an increase in ALL attributes, but instead have the stats "change", for example gaining +2 to Power but -1 to Strength and Speed. Else we will end up with a perfect character and that will make things boring.Also how do you use the stats, I assume you go for a roll under under but then I wonder how the enemy roll intervene? Both the player and the enemy rolling under their stats would mean they BOTH achieve what they were trying to do, or maybe it is just a matter of who rolled higher regardless of stats. Would love to know.>>29361702> Us being in the Women TeamOh please yes thank youAlso it starting at 10 AM PST is mighty fine!
>>29365714I use the rolls as a guide as to how the fight is going to go, but common sense is the biggest factor for me; If the players get a shitty roll for Katja and the opponent and/or other factors get a critical, well, it's not going to be the end of the fight or an epic failure on what you/she were trying to do, but it'll be enough to possibly have her change tactics on the next opportunity to do so.As for stats, during fights I use them much like how Fighting Gamer's use the data on their characters, except I also use bits and pieces of Cannon Story elements to determine how damage could be done to X Fighter with Y Move, and if it's plausible (Though I will point out that Ralf Jones can't, actually, survive Nukes, as he states in Pic Related). IE If Katja goes up against a fighter that has, say, 20 Points of attack power over her (Which there are a few that could possibly show up down the line), that opponent will do damage to her quicker than some one who, say, is only 2 or 3 points above her stats. As far as defence goes, it works in the same way; If you go against a fighter with a high defense, you'll do less damage to them, as well as have your criticals do less, though I can reveal that you will never end up fighting somebody that has "Super Armor" against you (IE No-Sells everything you do and powers through your attacks).Lastly, Katja's stats increased across the board because:1. She's lived at the Kyokugen Dojo everyday for almost Two Months.2. She's been sparring with somebody (Kyokugen Scrubs and Yuri Sakazaki) for at least One Month's worth of that time.3. (The biggest factor) She was determined to get stronger; She found her motivation to fight, realized that she was mostly going through the motions before and actually started working towards her goals... As to what those actually are, well... Lastly, should I make a new thread? Or just continue with this one until it hits the bump limit?
>>29366745General etiquette is to ride a thread into autosage and keep riding it until somewhere around page 8, then start a new one.
>>29367037Understood. Restarting thread NOW!(Updates now Resume)>You are now playing the role of Katja HartkernYou hear an excited knock on the door as you pause your stretches and open it, Yuri Sakazaki looking like a kid on Christmas Day as you note that she's holding an envelope in her right hand.>A. Say something>B. Do Something
>>29366745> Ralf can't survive nukesDon't test him on that, the guys has explosive fists....> StatsFair enough, if you can handle all the math and rules no problem. I'd figured a roll under would be simpler but both ways work fine.Just waited to make sure we didn't end up with 90s all across the board but there is indeed some sense in how she grew during this training session.
>>29367255> ANotice the envelope and suspect something."What could this be?..."
>>29367255>>A. Say something"And what's got you so happy then?">>B. Do SomethingContinue with the stretches
>>29367300I can garuntee that Katja, if played properly, MIGHT reach an 80 in at least one area, but the rest of her stats will drop dramatically.>>29367328>>29367406"Mornin' 'Uri. What's got you so happy then?" You ask, mindful to continue your mourning warm-up stretches."I got my invitation to The King of Fighters: Infinite Match!" She practically squeals, her unbridled joy prevalent in"Oh... Did I get one?" You ask, not quite sure how she'll respond to your dry question.She pauses, then says "Well... That's what I wanted to talk to you about. Mind if I come in?"You shrug, then let her in as she explains during your routine that, no, you didn't recieve an invitation, but that anyone who did could endorse up to two people of their choice to fight alongside them, under the condition that they pass a full physical check-up."Well, what do you say? Wanna join me and King on the Women's Team?" Yuri asks.You say nothing, your mind lost in thought as to what you should say... In truth, you knew that the invites to the Tournament had already been sent, as Fiona & Tsuyako called you up when they got theirs and offered to let you join their "Women's Grappler's" Team (Their third choice dropping out suddenly), then got a call from That Red-Headed nurse from the Hospital, appologizing for "Yashie-Kun" stealing your wallet and offering a chance to join their "Neo New Faces" Team as way to make up for that... Then, Mary got in touch with you out of nowhere and told you that, in part due to your eye-witness account of that "Mobster's Ball" at the Pao Pao Cafe 2, itcould be easier to garuntee your own personal safety if you team up with her and her Boss, Seth.Still, even with all of those options on your plate, the thought of Takuma Sakazaki ingnoring your hard work and progress (Which you had overheard him telling Yuri, but didn't let on to knowing) over some guy you've never met from their Mexican Off-shoot makes part of your blood boil.
>>29367859What do you do?>A. Accept Yuri's offer to be on The Women's Team>B.

After a few minutes, you find him meditatingTakuma hears your footsteps and turns, slowly, to face you while still in the full lotus position. "You've interrupted my meditation for this?" He asks, seemingly knowing what's on your mind before saying "Fair enough. What is on your mind?""You... I've busted my arse for this, did everything you and Ryo 'ave told me to do, done a thousand bloody sit-ups EVERY DAY for the last MONTH to try and please y'all, yet you don't even give me the time of day!" You yell, your body almost shaking in your convictions.Takuma glares at you as you glare back at him, before ceding some ground. "... You bring up strong points. But, you've left out one that trumps them all..." He pauses, before grumbling the word "Money.">A. Ask him "What's money got to do with Martial Arts?" >B.

You growl, caution flung to the wind as you use four years of psychology courses in college at your disposal to craft "Just" the right response. "How can you put Talent, Raw Strength and Skill aside in the name of Money and call yourself a Martial Artist? How can you do that and still claim to have any shred of Pride left!? WELL?!?"Takuma takes an unpleseant look at you, your eyes widening with fear as you wonder if you overspoke too soon, or prodded at an open wound in his psyche before sighing loudly. "I know...It is a sad truth. The fact remains, though, that money IS what keeps our schools around the world alive and The King of Fighters Tournaments are the best place for us to show the world the power of Kyokugenryuu.""Belive me, if Honor and Power could pay our bills, we would never need to fear of debt collectors or taxmen... But they don't. For each successful tournament we compete in, we still can't keep the creditors off our backs; For every 100 Students our schools gladly accept, one, maybe two, stay on to achieve some sort of training. Why, look around you; Count how many students have left from the start of the year, why not? The Dojos in Mexico and Japan are no better; Robert keeps them afloat with money from his private fortune, but how long can that last?" He says, his voice sounding very old before adding "That's why I want Marco to stand on the center stage with us, to be the latest Disciple of Kyokugenryuu." >A. Ask him "Why Marco?

>>29370329>>29370395>>29370591You take a look at him and feel a bit childish for getting up in his face so early in the morning over this issue; Indeed, you feel as though you can see Master Takuma in a whole new light after what he's told you."By the way...""This Marco. He's a good bloke? Tough?" You ask, genuinely curious about him (As you've never actually met)."In 20 Years of hard, dedicated training, he's mastered and Combined the Dragon and my own personal sect of Kyokugenryuu and formed his own, The 'Chimera'... AND has opened his own Dojo, our fifth, in Brazil. Can you say the same?" Takuma replies, a sense of pride noticeable in his voice."... Can't say I'm 'appy about this, but you do what you have'ta." You tell him, before adding "Thanks for letting me in on the decision.""Not at all. It's good to let these things out in the open before they fester... Though there's one other thing I'd like to mention..." You turn around to face Takuma, only to get suckered into taking a punch to your gut, the force of it severely winding you. "If you EVER use that tone of voice to me again, I will kick you out onto the street myself!" He growls, sounding a bit like his "Mr. Karate" persona before adding "I know you are strong, but your lack discipline in matters like this is the biggest why you haven't unlocked our true potential.""Y...Y-yes, Sensei" you weakly reply before audibly inhaling and exhaling to try and get oxygen back into your lungs as you walk back to your room, Yuri waiting for you with a confused look on her face."What happened? Catch my brother out in the shower or something? She asks, looking at you hunched over and gasping for breath as you start to explain what had happened with Takuma."And he DIDN'T kick you out for you saying that?" Yuri says, her voice filled with awe."Fer now at least" you reply."Wow... He HAS changed after that health scare" Yuri mumbles, before asking "So... Do you still want to join me and King?"

>>29370962>>29370910Looks like I got ninja'd.>D. You got enough confidence in someone a new as I in all this? I mean if ya do, I'll be honoured. But if not, I don't want you to give the spot cause you think you owe me one.
>>29370910Who is going to be the third member of the team?Also what does Fiona and her teammate look like?
>>29370910>.>B. Decline, telling her that you have three different offers from other teams for a third memberI've given my reasons up above.
>>29370910>>29371083Hang on. Blue Mary and her boss offered the spot to make it easier to protect us. We sign up with them, we might not get to fight as often. Fiona and Tsukayo are newbies, and the other two... dont want to be Orochified. Vote switch!>>A. Accept Yuri's Offer and become the third Member of The Women's Team

>>29370962You still have the Blank Check, but you aren't 100% sure it's "Clean" (Meaning that you could use it, but it might put you in a lot of trouble).>>29371035Fiona Graves looks like a cross between Red Sonja & Powergirl; A larger-than-life, living, breathing Comic Book Heroine that's 6'2" Tall (Weight unknown, but is physically larger than you in just about every area...).Tsuyako Horikawa looks like a DELICIOUSLY Thick Sakura from Street Fighter, except with An Okinawan's Tan and is around 5'9" tall (Weight also unkown, but could be the largest female to ever compete in a KOF).Both of them are grapplers, but how they fight is TBA.Also, I'm sadly going to have to go on Hiatus for an undetermined amount of time (Parents coming over to visit), but if this thread's still up I'll post the conclusion.Current Votes:A = 2B = 1C = 1D = 1
>>29370910> BFeeling curious about those two "new faces".I just hope Tsuyako is not actually fat, that would seriously kill my boner
>>29371423Where IS Mai, anyway?>AAt least Yuri trusts us.
