Previous threads here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Olympian%20QuestCharacter sheet here: http://pastebin.com/VTN4bR9sYou are Bianca Machiti, and it's been a long day. You've resolved to do one more thing before going home and sleeping, though: Meet with your brothers and have lunch with them. A little meet and greet that you're greatly looking forward to. It makes you feel warm and fuzzy, and brings back blurry and vague memories of time spent with them. You were always closest to Kratos, your elder brother, then Nike, your younger sister, but never too close with Zelus, the youngest, even though you cared for each other. He had... a caustic personality at times, too devoted and fanatical about lord Zeus and his agenda. You are arriving at an upscale restaurant, appropriately Greek, and Nike is letting a valet take the car. "So, looking forward to seeing them again?" She asks, and you nod, excitedly. She looks around, then points at a table. Two men sit at it. The first is short and thin, pale skinned with blond hair and blue eyes, wearing black lipstick and eyeliner, dressed in a pair of tight black pants with a heavy chain coming from the pockets, a tight black t-shirt, black combat boots, and has a black leather longcoat on the back of his chair. You're not sure Zelus looks good in goth clothes... you should talk to him about that, maybe. The second is a tall and powerfully built black man, with a shaved head, wearing a white suit with a black button-up under the jacket. You note Kratos fidgeting nervously, trying to hide a myriad of tattoos on his forearms and wrists. >Greet your brothers? Also, I should note, Bianca/Bia is Italian, and I imagine her as a more muscular Giorgia Palmas with short black hair and green eyes. Maybe Francesca Lodo. Feel free to suggest other appearances, and if there's a drawfag interested, that'd be awesome.
Rolled 10>>29368359How are my two brothers doing?Zelus, that outfit looks wrong on you.Kratos, stop looking so nervous!
>>29368359There's an olympian quest?And my brothers are... the gang.Fetch me my aspis, but for now, greet my brothers.
>>29369371Sure, let's go with it.Man, no-one noticed this going live huh...
>>29369371>>29370144>>29370153>Finally, replies! "Kratos, Zelus!" You stride forward, grinning widely. "It's good to see you! How are you doing?" You ask, and both rise from their seats to meet you. "Kratos, stop looking so nervous! Zelus, that outfit..." You tut and wag a finger. He blushes and adjusts his shirt, while Kratos laughs and grabs you in a bear hug, lifting you off the ground."Aaah, my favorite little sister! It's been too long!" He cheers, and you can't help but contract his good mood, hugging him back, tightly enough to break the bones of a normal mortal. You were quadruplets, yes, but there's always been a hierarchy amongst you. First out, Kratos always took the lead, and was your only match in pure combat. He drops you and you land easily on your feet, as he again adjusts his sleeves to hide his tattoos. "The folly of youth." He explains, looking just a touch sheepish. You just grin and look to Zelus, holding out your arms."C'mon, little brother. Don't I get a hug from you too?" You ask, and he rolls his eyes, stepping up to hug you. He was never as strong as Nike, let alone as strong as you or Kratos, so you make sure and be gentler with him. "Do I really not look good?" He asks, once you release him. He always valued your opinion, you and your siblings were the only ones he respected, beyond lord Zeus. "Maaaybe time for a new look." You gently decide. You note Kratos and Nike embracing, then she grabs up Zelus in a hug as well, before you all finally get around to taking your seats. "I already placed out orders." Kratos explains. "I got you Apaki, I remembered you were always fond of it." He has a better memory than you, you only remember that when he mentions it. >What do you say and ask of your brothers? Also, I'm testing out getting 'actors' for each of the big characters. I could use some feedback on if it's a good idea or not.
>>29370543Ask them what they're doing for their civilian lives these days, if they know any other godlings that Atena/Nike don't (or know them better), etc.
Rolled 6>>29370543Ask them about their background. I am really curious about Kratos.Be judgemental of Zelus and propose to go shopping with him.
>>29370575>>29370636Yup. Also, ask them how long ago they found out
>>29368359>>29369162>I imagine her as a more muscular Giorgia PalmasGo have hot lesbian sex
>>29370734Please, anon. They're all related.
>>29370575>>29370636>>29370716"So, what are you guys doing these days? What have you been up to this life?" You ask, keeping the mood light. "How old are you? How long ago was your... what was it, First Ascent?" "Well." Of course it's Kratos who leads. "I'm forty years old, I uh... well, I used to participate in a good deal of criminal activity. I was sadly stricken by sociopathy and a sadistic streak, but my First Ascent came with a very healthy dose of morals and ethics. I now run a small charity here in the city. It was... oh, about two months ago that I awakened, been busy since then, fixing my mistakes." He quietly explains, with no small amount of shame in his features and voice. "I'm seventeen." Zelus pipes up. "I'm... boring. Really boring. Upper class family, happy homelife, bad attitude. This..." He picks at his clothes. "Was one of those... cry for attention, rebellious phase things." He admits. You can tell he's struggling to admit it, and probably only is because the connection between the four of you. "We'll go shopping later." You promise with a wink. He nods, head down, blushing slightly. Kratos reaches over to pat him on the back, and Nike nods sagely. "What about you?" Kratos asks. >Waitress, amateur boxer, only close friend is Donna, your parents live off in Florida. Your life is pretty boring, besides spending most of your time at the gym. What explain?
>>29371154Hmm, well might as well tell them all of it really. Maybe emphasize the kickboxing with Donna, not so much the ex-waitress thing. Talk about your awesome new gig too!
>>29371154Definitely emphasize how much you've been working at the gym and at kickboxing, maybe offer to train with the group of them. Also ask what their fighting specialties are.If we're going to be facing down horrid monstrosities, we need our siblings. 4 demigods should be enough to handle almost anything that the world can throw at us.
>>29371154Spin a bullshit tale of how you were living a sad life in poverty until the goddess Athena took pity on you and earned your undying loyalty, see how long you make it before Nike tries to punch Bia in the face.
Rolled 10>>29371154>Waitress, amateur boxer, only close friend is Donna, your parents live off in Florida. Your life is pretty boring, besides spending most of your time at the gym. What explain?Lets tell them with a straight face that we are a professional hitman involved in taking down several high profile targets in the middle east.Then admit that we are a waitress.
>>29371154Amateur boxing enthusiast and a hot waitress. Not that bad a life i say.
>>29371154Go with >>29371300 followed by >>29371309.>>29371368I bet waitressing wasn't even that bad, imagine the tips you'd get doing it if you looked like Giorgia Palmas.
>>29371309You sigh tiredly, sitting back and looking up. "My story is a sad one, growing up in abject poverty." You explain, putting a hand t your forehead like you always see the poor women in older movies do when they had 'vapors' or whatever. "I had no hope or prospects, no meaning to life, until the glorious goddess, Athena, found me and earned my undying loy-" You pause as Nike, on your left, punches you across the face. You straighten up in your seat, then lean forward slightly. You calmly steeple your hands in front of your face, looking around the table. "I'm a professional hitman." You calmly say. "I've taken down several high profile targets in the middle east, eastern Asia, and South Amer-" You pause when Zelus, on your right, reaches over and smacks you upside the back of the head. You straighten up, crossing your arms and holding your head up high. "Fine, I'm a waitress. And amateur kickboxer, that's the important part. My friend, Donna-" You jab Nike in the side when her cough sounds suspiciously like 'girlfriend'. "-has been teaching me Muay Thai for a long time now, and I'm pretty good, especially with the whole superhuman thing I got going for me now. Why do you look so put out?" You ask, looking to the pouting and sullen looking Kratos, sitting across from you."I didn't get to hit anyone..." He mopes. Nike snorts and Zelus rolls his eyes. >What do you want to talk about with your siblings now?
>>29371786Ask them what their weapon specialties or skills are. maybe if they've run into any monsters or challenges.Also applaud Zelus for taking some initiative and giving us a good smack, it's awesome to be back in the family.
>>29371786Just mess around and have some fun. Ask what kinda movies they like, any family/friends or partners, that kind of thing.
Rolled 19>>29371786You can hit Zelus. Now lets see what our two brothers are working on right now.
>>29371786No worries Kratos, we'll find you some people to punch soon enough.
>>29371828>>29371856"You can hit Zelus." You offer up, grinning. Zelus makes a distressed noise before Kratos flicks him in the forehead with his middle finger. You wink at Zelus, who rubs his forehead and sticks his tongue out you. "So, what sort of cool toys you guys got? Powers? Skills?" You're interested to learn about them. "Oh, oh! I'll start! I got my spear, my gauntlets and boots, my mace, and my rifle. I'm a martial artist, I use a custom style based on Sambo, some Judo, some MMA... Mostly grapples. I've got enhanced physical abilities, though not to you or Kratos' level, but I make up for it with some minor super luck, basically. I always win games of chance, unless I focus on turning the power off." She explains."I've got a sword and a shield, and a suit of armor. I've got enhanced physical abilities, and a sort of... air of authority. People like listening to what I say." Kratos goes next. "I've got a book, and some robes." Zelus explains. You have to motion for him to continue before he realizes you'd like more info. "Oh, right. Well, they help me with my spells. I've got all sorts of spells, and I can temporarily steal a little bit of someone's powers. Emulation and Envy, you know." He explains. "Most of my magic is buffing stuff. Oh, uh, that's a game thing. Uh, it makes others... better." He shrugs. >So Kratos is a male you, Nike is a weaker, luckier version of you, and Zelus is the caster/buffer. What now?
Rolled 7>>29372366>>So Kratos is a male you, Nike is a weaker, luckier version of you, and Zelus is the caster/buffer. What now?Form a party and go loot some dungeons.Kidding.Or not. We should look into raiding the holy places of other pantheons.
>>29372434>I want to note right now: This is a thing you can do.
>>29372366Damn, we do sound like a solid team. Kratos and us can be the meatshields and damage dealers, Nike can be our long range and gap filler, and Zelus buffs. NICE.As for what now, I'd say we relax and eat dinner with the full gang, maybe tell them that they need to come over to hang out at Athena's facility so that they can train. While making a jab about Nike's sugarmama, of course.
>>29372366Maybe we figure out some details of that rescue mission in Japan? That seems to be something that we'll need to take care of soon.
>>29372366Plan some sort of outing (read: loot-getting mission) for the near future, then split up and go home for the night.
>>29372434Agreed, let's ask around and see what ideas the others have for targets.
>>29372434>>29372670>>29372642Your meals come while you do some small talk, and eventually you have an idea. "So... the other Pantheons. Do they have like.. holy grounds? Vaults? Convenient loot locations?" You idly ask. Zelus slowly looks up."...dungeons?" He asks. Nike gets a funny look, blushes, coughs, then nods."Yeah, they have temples, holy sites, that sort of stuff. Dangerous, but usually where they store artifacts and relics. Why?" She responds. "Dungeons, huh." You give her a big grin and she raises a fist, but you wave her off. "Right, but seriously. Could we raid one? For said relics, combat experience, etcetera?" You ask, and you get some nods all around as you settle in to think. Athena does some searching on her phone while you all talk and plot. She finds three options that seem promising. The Hall of Tyr, less a hall, more a complex, it's buried up in southern Canada. Should contain the remains of an armory! Caves of Camazotz, a cave network in southern Mexico, inhabited by monstrous bat creatures, there should be a blowgun there, along with the rest of the gear of a legendary hero. Apparently left behind when his head was stolen... not much of a big deal, back in the day. A Temple to Amaterasu, not THE temple, just a lesser one. Sure to annoy Amaterasu, which might not be the wisest thing, but the Japanese always have such neat toys! >Thoughts? Plans?
>>29373187Wait, Athena was here? I have a vague recollection it was just us and Nike at the end of last thread, and we went straight to see the bros.>Caves of CamazotzSeems like the entry-level/won't-piss-anyone-off-hopefully choice.
>>29373263>Oops! Yes, NIKE is the one who searched on the phone.
>>29373187I'd say we try the Hall of Tyr, and yeah let's call it a night after planning.
Rolled 8>>29373187>A Temple to Amaterasu,That would sound like a good practice for the eventual rescue of Apollo and Artemis.
>>29373263>>29373468>>29373532>Welp. I'm going to end it for the night to let you guys talk and discuss things about PARTYing up and where to go. Same time tomorrow, gents. Please keep the thread alive!
>>29373978Alright, thanks for running!I think Amaterasu would be less than ideal, it would put us properly on the radar and signal hostility. Better to give no signal of our intentions in advance.Hall for loot but with a risk of angering Norse gods, or Caves for less loot but probably not getting any complications or grudges, would be better IMO.
Rolled 2>>29374066Then the caves I guess.
I almost missed the thread!I would like to do the Caves of Camazotz. It doesn't sound as difficult as the two others and i would rather piss off South American pantheon than the Norse one.
Rolled 4, 4, 4, 4 = 16Bumping for OP
A bump before i got to bed
Rolled 18>>29380517So will I
>>29374575Caves seem a good intro.
So new thread or pick back up with one
>>29373978>Ladies and gentlemen, I'm afraid it's not likely I'll be able to continue today, a long story short: A family member has alzheimers and I am spending the day trying to help care for him. If at all possible I will continue this later today, if not, tomorrow. >In the mean time, we're gearing up for a short timeskip! In said timeskip you get to chose three things to focus on and automatically succeed at. Don't worry too much, though. Just because you don't focus on something doesn't mean you're neglecting it. For example, if you don't chose to practice with your gun, you'll still go to the range for an hour a day or so. If you don't chose to study up on Greek myths, you'll still wiki a few things. Etcetera. >Options include, but are in no way limited to:>Study up on Pantheon of choice.>Train with your weapons and powers.>Quality family time.>Study up on one of the possible dungeons. >Study under chosen Godling.>Etc.
>>29393519>Quality family time.But don't neglect Donna!>Study up on Pantheon of choice.Japanese if we're gonna tussle with them.>Study under chosen Godling.Let's see what Kratos can teach us. Admittedly the bodyshapes don't quiiite match for proper teaching, but eh. I'm sure we can improvise some forms.
>>29393519>>Study up on Pantheon of choice.Study the greek pantheon.>Train with your weapons and powers.Train with those boots and that sword.>Study under chosen Godling.Study with kratos.
>>29393519>Quality family time.And Donna quality time>Study up on Pantheon of choice.If we're going to to the caves, lets study the south american pantheon>Train with your weapons and powers.with our new armor, and our sword and staff, but don't neglect our gun
>>29393519Train with our powers and weapons. We are a tank, and we need to be able to carry the team if necessary.Study up on one of the dungeons. Let's study the bat cave. This will be our first mission, so we want it to go as smoothly as possible while we work out the kinks in our team.Quality family time. Our group is our power, let's spread some love. And some innuendos about Nike and Athena, but that goes without saying.
>>29399619>We are a tankTANK YOU SAY?
>>29410032>>29408207>>29405149>>29411605What's wrong with you?
